A series of violent incidents at the Baltimore City jail has prompted a lockdown that could remain in effect through the end of the year or longer, according to state officials and inmate advocates. Program providers said they were recently notified that they would not be able to visit the Baltimore City Detention Center at least through the end of December. Advocates are concerned that key services and even holiday visits, such as an annual program in which children are able to visit their mothers on Christmas, could be blocked.

When Michael Gonzalez signed a two-year, $12 million deal before the 2010 season, he envisioned entering the game in the ninth inning and closing out an Orioles' victory against a tough divisional foe. Gonzalez did that in the Orioles' victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night, but not under the circumstances that he or anybody else expected. The Orioles had a seven-run lead and manager Buck Showalter originally planned to bring back Koji Uehara for a second inning of work, but Nick Markakis ' two-run double in the bottom of the eighth convinced him to go to Gonzalez.

IF NEPALESE King Gyanendra's goal is to end the violent insurrection that has been building since 1996 and that essentially controls all but his kingdom's cities, his declaration of a national emergency a week ago seems destined to backfire. The king fired Nepal's prime minister and elected government, suspended democracy and civil liberties, and cut all air, phone and Internet links to the roof of the world - a lockdown still largely in place. In taking Nepal's nascent constitutional monarchy back to feudal autocracy, the king has turned a messy three-way struggle - among himself, Nepal's political parties and the armed rebels now ruling its villages - into an even more dangerous war with just two sides, the 250-year-old dynasty and supposed Maoists modeling themselves after Peru's Shining Path.

The term around the Loyola lacrosse team is "Fletched," as in the opposing attackman got "Fletched.

He was the only college player selected to the U.S. national training roster for the 2014 World Cup, and he is a specialist, just like a face-off player.
