Justin Benedik played nearly every sport he could imagine during his youth in Calvert County. His main focus was soccer, but the 2004 Patuxent graduate also dabbled in football, tennis, golf, lacrosse and "almost everything my parents could bring me to without having any time left. " But it wasn't until his senior year at Maryland that Benedik was introduced to wushu, the sport that changed his life. Benedik attended a demonstration staged by the TerpWushu club in the grand ballroom of the Stamp Student Union and was immediately taken by the sport's dizzying combination of Chinese martial arts, acrobatics and gymnastics.

Operating rather inconspicuously from his Charles Village-based firm Cultural Site Research and Management, Comer has overseen some of the region's most important archaeological and historical preservation projects. That's when he's not spur-of-the-moment globetrotting to a newly discovered archaeology site or to play watchdog over the preservation of some of the Earth's most-treasured archaeological finds.

With supply growing and demand waning, Maryland officials announced Tuesday that they are expanding distribution of swine flu vaccine beyond priority groups and making it available to any adult who wants one. In Maryland and nationwide, infections from the H1N1 virus peaked in late October and have plunged since. In recent weeks, once-mobbed flu clinics across the state have seen just a trickle of people - so much less demand than expected that officials have had vaccine left over once the doors closed.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -The Orioles are not going to be tempted to accelerate the development of top pitching prospect Brian Matusz, but that isn't going to stop him from showing them what they'll be missing at the major league level this year.

Stacey D'Erasmo Stacey D'Erasmo's third novel, The Sky Below, has its roots in journalism; its protagonist is an obituary writer for a paper in Manhattan. "You've seen me," the book opens. "I'm the guy opposite you on the subway or the bus, I've passed you on the street a million times." Yes ... but no, not really, for D'Erasmo has something more in mind. Her story is not about dissolution but redemption - a revolutionary concept for a journalist these days. Journalism is a territory D'Erasmo knows firsthand; she's a former senior editor at the Village Voice Literary Supplement.
