Last Monday, the extraordinary Synod of Bishops to discuss the "Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization" began in Rome. The synod represents a key moment in the papacy of Pope Francis and in the life of the Roman Catholic Church, which is looking for more effective ways of communicating what it believes and teaches about marriage and family life and of supporting those who wish to live according to church teaching and are struggling to do so in the face of contemporary challenges.

It is not precisely true that Americans don't talk about race. Race informs our discussions of everything from crime to education to who got picked for American Idol. We talk race in the lunchroom with people who look like us, yell race at the television when irked by people who don't. We read race in our newspapers and magazines, then write race in letters and e-mails to editors. January rolls around and we celebrate the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. February sweeps in and we observe Black History Month.

WESTOVER - Betsy Mueller rarely speaks up in her philosophy classes at Salisbury University. But there's one place she comes alive - surrounded by convicted felons at the state prison. "On the outside, I don't have a voice. But here, I've realized that to entertain discussions with inmates sparks the discovery that I do have things to say," the senior from Cockeysville said this week at the Eastern Correctional Institution. "It's been a breakthrough in my world." Mueller is one of 20 Salisbury students who belong to a most unusual book group - and one of the bolder town-gown ventures a college has ever tried.

As another Orioles season ends Sunday at Camden Yards, team officials will enter the beginning stages of planned renovations to the 18-year-old stadium. Janet Marie Smith, the Orioles' vice president for planning and development, said discussions about Camden Yards enhancements are still in the "conceptual stage" and the team will likely meet with Maryland Stadium Authority officials in late October to go over the plans. "We've got some ideas that we are working on, and we're kind of getting them priced out," said Smith, who presided over the original design and construction of Camden Yards.

It's been more than two decades since Warren J. Spector attended St. John's College in Annapolis, but the Wall Street banker can vividly recall the conversations the school inspired among students - some of them lasting well into the night. "One of the things that's unusual about St. John's is that it's a community - one that fosters a continual discussion," said Spector, a 1981 graduate who is president and co-chief operating officer of Bear, Stearns & Co. in New York. "You're in a classroom having a discussion, and then you leave, and you're still in it. Then, at 10 p.m., you go to the campus coffee shop, where everyone is still discussing."

The tone of civic discussion shifted noticeably this week in the aftermath of the tragic attack at the Boston Marathon, an attack that narrowly missed Harford County participants in the storied footrace. Discussions and name-calling relating to the usual public policy discussions has been taking a back seat to a shared sentiment across the American spectrum of viewpoints that such mindless and cowardly acts of violence have no place our society, be they the actions of intruders or violent homegrown terrorists.

For two years, the crew of the USS Jeannette was trapped in ice north of the Bering Sea. The sailors staged musicals, played football, ate seal meat (which they dubbed "arctic turkey") and even performed surgery on the eye of a crew member afflicted with syphilis. Then, in June 1881, the real adventure began: The Jeannette sank. The men loaded their provisions onto dog sleds and began the trek to Siberia, some 1,000 miles away. Journalist Hampton Sides tells the story of the Jeannette's star-crossed expedition in his latest book, "In the Kingdom of Ice. " Sides spent more than three years poring over thousands of pages of records kept by the ship's captain, letters, diary entries and testimony from the 13 men who survived the brutal journey.

President Barack Obama laid out a sobering view of the international crises that have beset his administration this year - and tried to make the case for returning Democrats to the Senate majority - at a small gathering of political donors in Baltimore on Friday. Speaking at the home of a hedge fund manager who is among the country's foremost advocates for Israel, Obama said the Islamic State fighters who have taken over portions of Iraq and Syria have displayed "the kind of brutality that even by the standards of terrorists is extraordinary.

Developer Patrick Turner again put off possible foreclosure on the South Baltimore waterfront he wants to redevelop as the parties agreed Monday in backruptcy court to an Oct. 24 hearing on all matters in the case. The delay gives Turner's Inner Harbor West LLC another month or so to attempt to come to terms with creditor Westport Property Investments LLC, which had asked the court to lift the automatic stay triggered by the bankruptcy that blocks foreclosure. If Turner and his creditors don't reach agreement before then, Judge Robert A. Gordon could be asked to decide the fate of Turner's aspiration to turn 43 acres on the Patapsco River into a project including homes, stores, hotels, a high-rise building and a park.

With more than 20 years of experience, R&B singer Joe has had a front-row seat to watch the genre evolve.  And in 2014, the 41-year-old singer born Joseph Thomas believes R&B needs to remember romance - and being in love with more than only yourself - still matters. To him, the influence of rap's street bravado has chilled a genre that has long identified with warmth. “I just want it to be a little bit more about love and more about respect, and to talk about things that's going on right now, as opposed to bigging yourself up and making yourself look real smooth and fly,” Joe said on the phone earlier this week from New Jersey.

About one in five cars on American roadways connects to outside parties via cellular telephone networks, transmitting data on drivers' speeding and braking habits, their location, and their vehicle's health and performance. By 2025, AAA predicts, all new cars will. Computers on board most vehicles on the road already collect and monitor such data, which can be downloaded at dealerships for repair purposes and shared with manufacturers, who say it's used to make cars safer and more reliable.

I'm writing in response to the opinion article titled "Death: Let's talk about it" (editorial, Dec. 29). While I agree with the point made that having discussions and making plans regarding actions to be taken or not taken at the end or near end of one's life are important, I differ in opinion as to who should be involved in those discussions and plans. Such discussions and decisions should be between family and, if wanted by the individual, physician and attorney. The federal government is not needed and should not be involved in such matters and should have no justification to dictate or mandate what should be the ultimate personal decision.

"Is there anything you would not tell your subordinates?" I recently asked a midlevel manager."Oh, yes," she responded. "For example, we have recently decided to close one of our retail outlets. But it will be about four months before the actual closing, and we will not communicate this decision until three weeks prior to closing.""Why?" I said."For some very good reasons," she said. "First we do not want any more rumors than necessary. Second, we want the people to stay as focused as they can on their tasks.

The Orioles weren't close to acquiring Boston Red Sox right-hander Jon Lester on Wednesday - one club source said bluntly, “it's not going to happen” - but executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to work the phones as the nonwaiver trade deadline approaches at 4 p.m. today. The club continues to actively search for pitching - with a left-handed reliever that can get out hitters from both sides of the plate as one of the top priorities, according to several sources. “We have a couple of active discussions,” Duquette said before Wednesday's game.
