Gov. Martin O'Malley's intervention in the wage fight between Johns Hopkins Hospital and its service workers reflects the lingering dispute's significance but also signals that it may be resolved soon. The hospital and members of the 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East labor union, which represents 2,000 Hopkins workers, went back to the bargaining table Tuesday after the governor asked them to take a cooling-off period. Union leaders also called off a four-day strike that was to have begun Friday.

Silicon Valley giant Oracle Corp. plans to acquire Columbia-based Micros Systems Inc. for $5.3 billion in a deal executives and industry observers said could generate local job growth instead of the typical corporate consolidation. In the deal announced Monday, Oracle offered $68 per share for Micros, about 20 percent more than the shares traded for before rumors of the deal began circulating last week. Oracle would gain the company's stable of brand-name customers, growth opportunities and niche technology processing sales in the hotel, restaurant and retail industries.

Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. plans to sell two television stations to help the company move ahead with a $1 billion planned purchase of seven ABC affiliates and a Washington-based cable news network.

Sinclair said Monday it expects that deal to close in the third quarter.

The last time the military consolidated, Maryland's installations grew. But the base realignment and closure process usually goes the other way - and now the Army is calling for another round. Officials in the state aren't waiting to see what happens. They're already preparing. It's not certain yet, but the potential for a new round of BRAC in the coming years was the main topic last week for the Maryland Military Installation Council, which brings dozens of military, state, local and business leaders together for regular meetings.

NEW YORK -- The Orioles have signed 37-year-old left-hander Randy Wolf to a minor league contract and have sent him to Triple-A Norfolk, where he likely will work in the rotation. Wolf pitched five games and made two starts for the Orioles in 2012 before tearing a ligament in his elbow. He sat out all of last season with his second Tommy John surgery, but he made a comeback this year, going 1-3 with a 5.26 ERA in six games (four starts) with the Miami Marlins. He was designated for assignment Monday by the Marlins and granted free agency Wednesday.

Many of you on Twitter last night and this morning refuse to accept the move to send Kevin Gausman to Triple-A. That's your prerogative. But here is the simple reasoning why Gausman was sent to Norfolk last night after making three strong starts (3-0, 0.94 ERA). Gausman's 2014 option has already been used. So he can be moved up and down with no consequences, roster-wise. Miguel Gonzalez, Wei-Yin Chen and Bud Norris haven't had their option used in 2014 (and all are veterans who have been pitching fairly well, too)

As Oliver Hardy used to tell Stan Laurel is those old black-and-white movie comedies, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!" That continues to be Barack Obama's refrain to his predecessor, George W. Bush, as he struggles in his sixth year in the Oval Office to bring about the change in Washington he promised in 2008. Mr. Obama's latest quandary is how to cope with Iraq's Islamist insurgency and revived sectarian conflict in the war he essentially declared over in 2011 by withdrawing the last American fighting troops.

Members of the union representing most of The Baltimore Sun's newsroom employees voted to approve a two-year contract extension Wednesday evening that freezes wages. The union, the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, supported the extension. The Sun's parent, the Tribune Co., expects to spin off its newspapers as a separate company this summer, and Guild leaders said the current contract offers employees stability and protection. A Baltimore Sun spokeswoman said the company was happy with the results.

Men's Wearhouse closed its $1.8 billion deal to acquire Hampstead-based Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc., the company said Wednesday, putting an end to what had been a pitched takeover battle between the two former rivals. The Houston-based men's clothing retailer paid $65 for each share of Bank, which will soon disappear from the NASDAQ's listings. Bank stores will retain their brand name. The combined $3.5 billion company will have 1,700 stores and 26,000 employees. The deal likely will mean job losses in Maryland, where Bank was founded in 1905.
