What if a major institution was interested in relocating its headquarters to Maryland, bringing with it 11,000 good-paying jobs and the need for thousands of additional subcontractors? Would we do everything we could to seal the deal? That's exactly the situation playing out right now, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation seeks a new home to replace an outmoded behemoth that consumes a valuable block of downtown D.C. real estate. The clear best choice is in Greenbelt in Prince George's County, and everyone who lives in Maryland should be in favor of that move.

Mold has closed a child care center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and a floor of the McKeldin Library at the University of Maryland, College Park. The UMBC child care facility, operated by the Y of Central Maryland, shuttered Wednesday night because of a mold problem caused by water leaking between walls, officials said, leaving dozens of families without child care. "We arrived at the decision to close with the safety of the children in mind, and we are very sorry for the impact it will have on the families affected," Lynne Schaefer, vice president for finance and administration, said in an email to the university community Thursday.

Although my role here at the University of Maryland College Park is as a professional in the field of information technology, it has been more difficult to do my part in helping us "foster a culture of innovation," primarily by hiring both graduate and undergraduate students to do real-life technical work ( "Federal funding drives innovation," April 30). That's because it has become much harder to find students actually from the United States who can do, or be trained to do, the type of software development and technical work I need.

My story isn't all that groundbreaking. I'm 23, officially a year removed from the University of Maryland-College Park and walking that ever-shaky line between being a functional adult and an irresponsible mess. It's a story you've heard many times before (probably in some form of Internet listicle). And it's also one that many of you are probably experiencing right now, or at least can remember when you were. My column will try to shed light on what being in this awkward half-stage of life really means.
