Before voting for president next week, I hope intelligent people will ask themselves a few questions, such as: Who will continue the sound, steady progress being made by the economy after saving it from the brink of a complete collapse? Who will continue to effectively use skilled diplomacy and the pressure of America's strength and influence to work with allies and the international community when dealing with world affairs? Who will continue to responsibly lead our country based on a respect for God, the rights and human dignity of all people and the protection of the health of our planet?

They are as well-versed in 3-D printing, weaving and the anthropology of fashion as they are in classic looks from Chanel and Dior. Students in the Maryland Institute College of Art s fibers program approach fashion from an unusual perspective. Although the college does not offer a traditional fashion design curriculum, graduates are creating inventive garments informed by education rooted in a sensual - and intellectual - understanding of textiles. "Fashion is a cultural force that relates to how we communicate ideas, values, fears and aspirations, our sense of belonging, and our ideas around gender and class," said fibers department chair Valeska Populoh.

Evan Fisher had never played a game in front of Jimmy Patsos , but that didn't stop the Siena men's basketball coach from telling the McDonogh star in June that “there was an offer on the table.” Fisher, an All-MIAA A Conference first-team selection for the Eagles as a junior, was flattered but anxious. “I didn't know how they'd respond if I had a bad game,” Fisher said Wednesday. “Coach Patsos is a good friend of our new coach, Coach [ Dave ] Gately . … I had spoken to [Siena coaches]

BOSTON - For several years, I've had a quote from the late Marshall McLuhan pinned to my bulletin board that says succinctly: "If it works, it's obsolete." This just about sums up my skepticism about technological advances. Progress is not the most important product, just my most complicated. So it is with great surprise that I finally found a piece of cutting-edge technology that actually changed my life. Or to be more specific, my mother's life. Six months ago, my mother was in TV hell.

Derrick Marcano's ability to perform many tasks in a given setting can be traced to a four-year stint in the armed forces. The Marines, in fact, which he joined as a 17-year-old right out of high school. "In the Marine Corps, we had a five-mile march," Marcano said. "They pack you in a backpack, and you have to run, get dumped in water, cross a rope. And you have to do it in a certain time. If you don't do it, then they send you to a different platoon. "For guys who couldn't do those physical things, boot camp would be longer.

As a new business, "MiY Home" and "Sleep Lab Z," we are very excited for the Red Line coming two blocks from our store ( "MTA announces series of 'open houses' on Red Line," Sept. 16). We purchased two connected abandoned buildings in the back of Fells Point (Douglass Place). One factor in doing this was that Baltimore was putting in a Red Line and people could get around and visit us without getting into cars to go shop in the furniture stores outside the city. I know the Red Line is controversial, but many of my neighbors and business peers have planted down roots in homes and businesses along the stops because this project moves Baltimore closer to being a world city.

There's barely room for the fire engines. The water isn't fit to drink. The safety equipment isn't up to modern standards. The Lake Shore Volunteer Fire Department's station in Pasadena is well past its prime. So it was with some sense of community relief that Anne Arundel County officials held a ceremonial groundbreaking Tuesday for a new fire station about a mile down Mountain Road from the old facility. The existing station, a brick building that dates to the 1940s, has been in line for replacement for years, and county Fire Chief Michael Cox lobbied to get the project included in the county's budget the past two years.

Terrance West is over the fact that his hometown Ravens did not draft him. Now, the former Towson Tiger is focused on being the featured running back for the upstart Cleveland Browns. That his opportunity continues against a Ravens team that he developed many ties to makes it more special. "It's going to be fun, like playing against another high school," West told reporters on a conference call Wednesday. "Back in high school, I played at Northwestern. It's like playing against Forest Park - guys that you know.

After the pain of Towson cutting its men's soccer program in March 2013 had subsided, Kay Banjo was faced with a life-changing decision: He could go pro and try out for Major League Soccer or finish his undergraduate degree and then use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. It was a no-brainer. "My dad has always been big on education, and I know I'm not going to play soccer my whole life, and I need to have something to fall back on," Banjo said. "I had one more semester to graduate.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank is on the board and Gov. Martin O'Malley offered his preliminary backing, but Maryland's role in a bid to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to the Washington region remained largely undefined. The nonprofit Washington 2024 unveiled a website and announced its board Thursday, but Plank was its only Baltimore-area member, and Maryland's participation is only nominally suggested in the newly released promotional material. Maryland appears to be a secondary partner in this effort, but likely would host multiple events if the bid is successful and be asked to make a significant financial contribution.

Offensive lineman Ryan Jensen hadn't felt like his normal self for a long time. He was visibly groggy from a lack of sleep. He was more irritable than usual. And he didn't feel as energetic as he needed to be on the Ravens' practice field. It turned out there was a reason why. Jensen recently was diagnosed with and treated for severe sleep apnea, a life-threatening disorder when left untreated. It also might have played a role in Jensen's being cut by the Ravens on Saturday after a preseason performance the 2013 sixth-round draft pick from Colorado State-Pueblo wasn't pleased with.
