*TC Q: I have been dabbling in stocks for four years. Three months ago, I had a hunch about a stock, so I doubled up on my position by borrowing on margin. After looking at a few monthly statements, I found that I can get a much lower rate from a discount brokerage firm. My broker charges 2 1/2 percent above the broker's loan rate, and the discount firm only charges 1 percent above the same rate. In addition, the discount broker offers much lower commission rates.I do my own research and make my own trading decisions and want to move my account to the discount broker.

I joined Christine Brennan, of "USA Today," and Howard Kurtz on "Media Buzz" today to talk about TMZ and the performance of mainstream media in covering -- or not covering -- the Ray Rice story. I was at first surpised to hear Brennan, who knows this turf as well as anyone, say an argument could be made that it is "the biggest controversy to ever hit a U.S. sports league. " But having thought about it since, I think she could be right. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

Within the last week the Orioles have added Jimmy Paredes, Alejandro De Aza, and Quintin Berry to their roster. The moves address a major deficiency of this club: A lack of speed. The Orioles are dead last in the major leagues -- by far -- in stolen bases. They have 36. The Miami Marlins and the Boston Red Sox are tied for the second-fewest with 49. Five individual players had more than the entire Orioles' team. The Los Angeles Dodgers' Dee Gordon leads the major leagues with 58 stolen bases, 22 more than the Orioles.

Maryland hospitals saw their operating margins drop by about two-thirds in the fiscal year that ended June 30, the Maryland Hospital Association reported yesterday. As a group, the hospitals had a 0.65 percent margin on operations - revenue received for patient care minus costs - and a total margin of 2.36 percent. Total margin includes nonhospital revenue such as investment income. That's down from a 1.93 percent operating margin and a 2.98 percent total margin in the previous fiscal year.

Fifteen months ago, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley declared that he would remain focused on the challenges of City Hall and not run for governor because "there is no tougher fight, and no more noble cause, than the turnaround of a great American city." O'Malley's overwhelming victory in yesterday's Democratic primary practically guarantees him a second term as mayor. But the decisiveness of the victory - capturing at least 66 percent of the vote, the largest margin in 20 years - leads some political observers to believe that he will see more tempting possibilities than sticking around until 2008 to finish his second term.

The Wild Orchid cafe has closed in Annapolis. The closing was confirmed by Lou Hyatt, one of the owners of the Severn Bank building at 200 Westgate Circle, where the Wild Orchid was a tenant for about two years. Owned by Karen and Jim Wilder, the Wild Orchid was more successful in its original home, the bungalow in Annapolis' Eastport neighborhood that is now home to Vin 909. Hyatt said the plans are to use the space occupied by The Wild Orchid, and before that Greystone Grill, as office space.

When you borrow money using stocks or bonds as collateral, what are the pay-back rules?The answer depends on who is lending you the money:If you use your stocks or bonds as collateral for a bank loan, the bank will define the interest and repayment terms.Some corporations have set up profit-sharing programs that allow employees to borrow against their stocks. Here again, the employer or plan sponsor sets the terms for repayment.If you use a margin account at a brokerage firm, the terms are the most flexible.

Baltimore Police confirmed that the former head of the homicide unit is back in that role, at least temporarily.  Maj. Stanley Brandford, who in April was named the commander of the Eastern District after about 16 months in charge of homicide investigations, is "temporarily" overseeing the unit again, a police department spokesman confirmed after receiving inquiries from The Sun. It was not clear why a change was made. Maj. Dennis Smith had been overseeing both the homicide unit and district detective unit - an unusual arrangement - since Brandford was moved.

The Orioles' margin for error this season has been razor thin. They know it, and the statistics back it up. One mistake or one break has often has been the difference in a season of close calls. Entering Saturday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, seven straight games had been decided by one run. That streak ended in a 6-3 Orioles loss before an announced 36,508 at Camden Yards. It really came down to one swing. Seattle's lone offensive superstar and renowned Orioles killer, Robinson Cano, did the honors.

On the field: The margin of defeat was the largest ever for the Yankees in the World Series. The previous high margin was eight; the last time that happened to New York was Oct. 2, 1958, when the Braves -- the Milwaukee Braves -- beat the Yankees. It was the largest margin of victory in any World Series game since Kansas City beat St. Louis, 11-0, on Oct. 27, 1985.In the dugout: If it had been a regular-season game, Yankees manager Joe Torre might've left Andy Pettitte in the game even after New York fell behind 5-0 in the third inning.
