Testing hospital patients on their ability to perform everyday tasks before they are released could go a long way to keeping them from returning to the hospital, new research from Johns Hopkins University suggests. Tasks such as moving from a bed to a chair, eating, using the toilet and communicating are uniformly assessed after patients go to rehabilitation facilities from hospitals, but function isn't always tested in a standardized way before they go. And Hopkins researchers found that low scores on a standardized test of the tasks was a good predictor of hospital readmission.

William Maughlin and "Downtown" Kevin Brown want you to have a good time and good food in Station North , a community they love. The duo behind the much-adored Station North Arts Cafe Gallery are following up that success with a second restaurant, Nancy by SNAC (as in Station North Arts Cafe), which opened last fall. Plans for a third Station North spot, a barbecue joint, are already in the works. Nancy is named for Nancy Haragan , the late founder of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance . Given the arts connection, its location - within the Maryland Institute College of Art Graduate Studio Center on North Avenue - is an appropriate one. Nancy by SNAC is open for breakfast, lunch and snacks every weekday but for dinner only on Fridays.
