Mobility, stability and agility are the targets inside the new Kinetics System room at Colosseum Gym in Columbia. Everyone from power-lifters to post-rehab patients can work with trainers to reach their goals, according to trainer Vic Selvaggi. Added in summer 2012 as part of a reconfiguration and expansion of the gym, the Kinetics System room houses specialized pneumatic equipment that trainers use to assess clients' abilities and form before developing a fitness regimen. The goal is to imporve form and functional movement before moving on to weight training, or as Selvaggi puts it, "movement before muscles.

Comebacks and eighth innings aside, one of the most pleasing sights in the first two games of the American League Division Series has to be that the Orioles' stellar defense is back. Orioles manager Buck Showalter makes it clear that it's your glove that moves you up through the minor league system and it's defense that keeps you in the majors. He uses Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty as examples that the Orioles are willing to let players work through their offensive struggles as long as they are sound defensively.

I am impressed by Jabriera Handy's story of her experience in jail and her work today as a youth organizer ("Occupy right to question youth jail plan," Jan. 23). Remarkably, she does not sound bitter, but rather, at a young age, has turned her experience into fuel for activism. Baltimore does not need a youth jail. My only bone to pick with what she writes is her reluctance to approve of civil disobedience as a form of protest against the planned jail. I don't know the details of how the Occupy folks conducted themselves, but civil disobedience is a time-honored, dignified form of speech.

As a tropical cyclone churned the Atlantic Ocean this month, a drone watched from above, dropping a paper-towel-roll-sized set of sensors attached to a parachute through the clouds on a 20-minute, 10-mile journey. The instruments revealed dry air low in the storm's center - something scientists from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center suspect was the nascent eye of Hurricane Edouard. The storm went on to become the Atlantic's first to reach winds of more than 110 mph since Sandy in 2012, though it never threatened the United States.

The consent forms teenagers must get signed by their parents before using a tanning bed could soon change. The State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is recommending that the form include a clearer and more focused warning about the dangers of tanning beds, including the risk of cancer. Parents will also have to show a government-issued ID when signing the consent form for their children. The form will expire six months after being signed.   The health department was trying to better inform parents as they make the decision whether to allow their children to tan, said Dr. Clifford Mitchell, director of the state's Environmental Health Bureau.

Employers in Maryland and across the United States face a deadline Wednesday that some may not know exists but that could prove costly if ignored. That's when all employers will be required to use an updated version of the federal I-9 form to prove the eligibility of new workers. The form appears to be short and simple, requesting an employee's name, address, Social Security number and citizenship status. But immigration and business experts say it's more complex than it looks.

Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard looked like his old self Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Pollard finished with 11 tackles, tying for the team lead with weak-side linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. Pollard was delivering some vicious hits and flying to the ball. He was playing aggressively and recklessly again, something that has been absent from his game since bruising his rib in the Week 2 game against the Eagles. The enforcer is back. “You never get 100 percent healthy,” Pollard said.

During the past 40 years, Lenore Tawney has become known as a pioneer in the liberation of fiber, giving it a sculptural presence that has won her accolades and exhibitions in leading museums. But she has done other kinds of work as well, including collage and small constructions. An exhibit of her work at the Maryland Institute College of Art demonstrates that whatever the form, she can endow it with elegance and nuance, reserve and passion.The show opens with a group of woven pieces that reveal all those qualities.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's 99th season -- Marin Alsop's eighth as music director -- promises to be eventful. That's the take-away from Friday night's performance at Meyerhoff Hall, where the concert will be repeated Sunday afternoon. Longtime BSO listeners cannot fail to notice the tightness of the ensemble these days, the disciplined articulation, the cohesive sound. Budget constraints have kept the orchestra from maximum strength for years (100-plus full-time players would be ideal; 80-something has been the norm)

A plant shot up about 6 feet in our yard recently. I never saw flowers, but the seeds remind me of ragweed. The leaf is not lacy like ragweed, though. It looks more like a stork footprint. What am I dealing with? There is a bumper crop of ragweed this year, and you have a species known as giant ragweed (Ambrosia trifida), as opposed to common ragweed (Ambrosia artemissiifolia). Unfortunately, giant ragweed pollen causes highly allergic reactions, just like the more familiar species.

Rick Snider of Biglerville, Pa., was the top winner in the grand-prize drawing at the Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale last Sunday, walking away with a boat, motor and trailer from Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Boats. "Aside from my kids, grandkids and wife, this is the most awesome thing to ever happen," said Snider, who qualified for the drawing by catching an Angler Award-qualifying 40.5-inch striped bass off Breezy Point in Calvert County from his sailboat. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources presented more than $70,000 in cash, prizes and merchandise at the celebration of fishing attended by more than 2,000 people, including sponsors, contestants and their guests, at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis.

Just a few weeks ago, Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels ' status was very much in doubt. When a chronic hamstring problem sidelined the two-time Pro Bowl selection for the majority of the preseason, Daniels insisted that he knew how his body was responding and was adamant that he would be just fine. Daniels is looking mighty accurate in his self-assessment. He caught a pair of touchdown passes Thursday night in a 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in a key AFC North game at M&T Bank Stadium.

There are lots of ways to transform an uninspiring piece of ground into a gorgeous, multiuse garden, but one of the most dramatic and enduring is hardscaping. Hardscape includes everything that's not plant material -- from gravel paths, patios and pergolas to retaining walls, decks, fences and sheds. "Hardscape is a way to delineate and shape space," says Kevin Campion, an associate at Graham Landscape Architecture in Annapolis. "It [often] evolves as a function of problem solving." The best hardscaping not only solves problems -- grading issues, organizing movement from the house or one part of the garden to another -- it adds beauty and expands use of the space.

Ravens free safety Darian Stewart delivered such a punishing tackle two years ago while playing for the St. Louis Rams that the impact knocked Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams off his feet and sent him crashing to the ground. The big hit left Williams woozy for several minutes, ultimately knocking him out of the game. Although somewhat undersized, strong safety Matt Elam emerged as a feared player in the Southeastern Conference with a series of devastating hits. The Ravens drafted him in the first round last year because of his aggressive nature.
