It was a tumultuous spring off the field for the NCAA, and the effect could change college lacrosse in substantial ways. The consensus to this point, however, is that there's still so much to be determined that it's impossible to project how lacrosse fans should ready themselves for the future. How this future looks could hinge on the development of two major storylines that might reshape college athletics: In late March, a National Labor Relations Board regional director decided that members of the Northwestern football team were, based on the nature of their work (playing a sport)

Think sunshine - not just sweetness - when you see the Domino Sugars sign lighting up the Inner Harbor at night. Solar panels have been installed on a rooftop at the sugar refinery off Key Highway to illuminate the neon fixture that's long been a landmark of the Baltimore skyline. The photovoltaic array is part of a push by Domino and its corporate parent, Florida-based ASR Group, to make the world's leading producer of cane sugar a little greener. With the $125,000 solar installation and other moves, "we hope to show Baltimore every day that sustainability is top-of-mind here and at our facilities across the globe," said Peter O'Malley, ASR Group's vice president of corporate relations.

Last week on the “X Factor” we had Demi and Simon's teams fight for the final spots. This week it's Britney and L.A.'s turn! L.A. is still pretty upset with getting the over 25's and has absolutely no problem showing that to his category. Jason Brock came through trying to sing “Big Girls Don't Cry.” He was right on pitch but L.A. and Justin Bieber feared that he may not be worth the $5M pay out. Annapolis' David Correy sang “Domino.” The song was almost unrecognizable.

Dan Janssen has eaten pizza for almost every meal for a quarter of a century. Pizza for breakfast. Pizza for lunch. Pizza for dinner. And almost always, it's plain cheese pizza. "I do eat a bowl of Raisin Bran once a week or so if I want to be healthy," said Janssen, 38, of Ellicott City. "But usually it's just pizza and coffee. " Janssen said he ate a normal "meat-and-potatoes" diet when he was growing up, but decided to stop eating meat for ethical reasons when he was a young teenager.

Water gushes over Domino Sugar's packaging building, washing off grit, fly ash and other gunk - so much of it that the cleaned-up facade is a noticeably lighter shade of brown. The building had plenty of time to collect whatever the weather and long-gone industry threw its way. It's the first time Domino cleaned it in the 25 years refinery manager Stu FitzGibbon has been there, and it's possibly a first since the plant opened in 1922. Domino spent decades focusing its spending on the inner workings of its 25-building Baltimore complex - the parts with a direct impact on refining and transporting sugar.

As much of Baltimore finishes its work day, the Domino sign is just warming up. Literally. Each evening, it takes 15 minutes from the moment the timer clicks on for the noble gases to be ready to paint the town red. Showtime zips through hundreds of miles of wire and 230 transformers until it makes a grand entrance in 650 elongated glass tubes bent into the shapes that spell out America's No. 1 brand of sugar. The result is picture perfect. Countless people have made the sign the backdrop for snapshots.

Men and women wearing hairnets, hard hats, safety glasses and bright-orange vests wended their way through Domino Sugars' Baltimore refinery Tuesday - there to look, not work. The manufacturing engineers and engineering students toured Domino as part of an international conference in town this week, a chance for boosters to get people thinking of Baltimore-area manufacturing in present and future tense rather than past. The Society of Manufacturing Engineers says new-wave manufacturing - 3-D printing, specifically - is one reason officials decided to meet in Baltimore this year.

" The first one in the Baltimore area opened this week in the city's Hamilton neighborhood on Harford Road.
