How much do you know about the week's new events? Or the geography of the Middle East? Or Batman movies? Coleman Anderson and his partner, Andrew Schuster, are betting a few hundred thousand of their investors' dollars that whatever you know, you'll want to test yourself, and that you're willing to spend time in the pursuit on their new website: Newsup. "The goal really is to make news a more meaningful experience for folks," especially young people, said Anderson, the chief marketing officer, who is 29. The site — http://www.newsup.me — presents news about national and world events, entertainment and sports in the form of an array of brief quizzes on a particular topic.

If the federal government really wants to help American citizens get affordable health care, why not regulate the pharmaceutical companies so that people can get the medicine they need without taking out a second mortgage? Oh, yeah -- I forgot -- that would involve lowering the income of multi-billion dollar corporations. Silly me!! Tony Seitz, Glen Burnie

State officials are hoping a new public health initiative to track the distribution and sale of highly addictive prescription drugs in Maryland can help reduce the number of people who abuse such medications. The initiative, inspired by a program originally developed in Kentucky 15 years ago, has led to a drastic drop in prescription drug abuse there, and it has the potential to become an important element in Maryland's overall effort to reduce overdose deaths from both legal and illegal drugs.

Annapolis police and local youngsters recently joined forces on land and in the bay for the department's annual youth fishing camp. The camp, in its 14th year, was held the week of July 21, and is run by officers, civilian employees and volunteers. The children visited Annapolis Recreation and Parks' Waterworks Park and Truxtun Park to fish, then went on the water with members of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association, who provided boats, equipment and expertise. Greg Shute, Skip Zinck, Jeremy Crawford, Jon Canatella and Rick Nadolny headed out with youngsters and helpers from Sandy Point State Park.

The photos of the immigrants pouring across the border certainly tug at our heartstrings. We've heard stories of the desire of these immigrants to escape threatening conditions, obtain desperately needed medical attention and seek a better life. The exhausted look of the women and frightened faces of the children speak volumes. Also filling the news lately have been stories about the government's unfairness to women in allowing employers to exempt themselves from paying for certain contraceptives if this runs against their religious beliefs.

The Sun purports to know that the federal government will likely pick up most of the $40 million to $50 million tab for switching over to Connecticut's health insurance exchange ( "The best bad option for Md.'s exchange," April 2). There's just one small problem with that reassuring statement: We taxpayers will be paying for Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's bungling of the Maryland's exchange whether it be through federal or state tax dollars. It is our money being wasted either way. So what's the difference, really?

After the success of last year's fundraiser in memory of her daughter, Josephine "Joey" Gay, who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, Michele Gay wants to continue the momentum with a second fundraiser to fuel a safe schools initiative. So the Columbia native was in the area last week to meet with volunteers to work on Joey's Second Annual Purple Ball and visit the offices of Vice President Joe Biden and Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal on behalf of Safe and Sound: A Sandy Hook Initiative - the pending nonprofit formed by six Sandy Hook mothers that has grown into a national advocate for school safety and security.

Most of the upgrades at the two-building BECO Towers complex in Owings Mills are pretty standard: new windows, functioning elevators, an updated heating and cooling system. Then there are the fish tanks. The roughly 1,000-gallon aquariums, which BECO Management installed last month in the lobbies of both Mill Run Circle buildings, cost about $100,000 each. They required the commercial real estate firm to reinforce the floor and replace its cleaning supplies with fish-friendly materials.

A recent article reported that Maryland is considering legislation to establish a state fund to compensate babies born with brain injuries, similar to Virginia's law ( "Maryland bill would create birth injury fund," Feb. 10). This would be a mistake. Virginia's program has been in place for over two decades, and so far no state has ever replicated it - for good reason. The program has been a failure on every level. It has been in fiscal crisis for years. To save money, there have been drastic reductions in benefits for these catastrophically-injured children.

COLLEGE PARK - In the course of a game, Mark Turgeon may yell, stomp his feet, clap his hands, plead or curse. When frustrated with a player, the Maryland men's basketball coach sometimes looks to the rafters as if seeking divine inspiration. In 15 seasons as a head coach, Turgeon has demonstrated countless visceral ways to deliver messages to his teams about their performances during games. But when a player really irritates him - for repeated lapses such as ill-advised shots - Turgeon sometimes resorts to his ultimate power.

It has been just over a year since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary school where 20 young children were murdered in seconds by a disturbed person with a grotesque weapon. There have been over a hundred children killed with guns and a number of mass shootings in this country since that date. There is a question I would pose to my own elected officials and others around the country: What have you done to prevent this from happening again? I am sure there are many who would answer by saying that we need more guns in society to protect us from gun violence.
