The Baltimore Sun won an Online Journalism Award Saturday for Matthew Hay Brown's 2013 article, " Breaking the Silence ," about American servicemen who were sexually assaulted while serving in the military. Women in uniform are more likely to be sexually assaulted than men. But because there are many more men than women in the military, there are more assaults against men than against women. And when the victim is a man, Brown's reporting showed, a perpetrator is far less likely to be punished.

Web retailers saw heavy traffic during the weekend. On Friday and Saturday, online sales rose 24 percent from the same days last year, Web research company Coremetrics said.

Jennifer Regester knew she was coming no matter what. Shortly after the Orioles clinched a spot in the American League Division Series, she bought plane tickets to Baltimore for her and her 18-year-old daughter, Taylor Twofeathers - from their home in Bozeman, Mont. Regester made the $1,700 splurge without any guarantee she'd be able to purchase playoff seats from her favorite baseball club. "Is that totally crazy?" the Baltimore County native asked. Maybe, but Regester was hardly alone in the rush to snap up tickets for the impending ALDS, which begins Thursday at Camden Yards.

Maryland State Department of Education statistics indicate Howard County schools have the highest percentage of students diagnosed with autism of any system in the state - a fact many local advocates say is a testament to the area's resources and support system. For parents with students diagnosed with autism, Howard is seen as a place where they can access in-school and out-of-school information and assistance. According to 2013 state education department data, Howard County had 764 students with an autism diagnosis - 16 percent of all students.

About 30,000 low-income Marylanders, half of them in the Baltimore region, have signed up for $10-a-month Internet service, Comcast officials said Monday as they promoted broadened access to the program, now in its fourth year. The Philadelphia-based cable service provider revealed the figures at an event at Baltimore's Digital Harbor Foundation, an after-school program it is working with to help close the digital divide. Comcast is giving the foundation free Internet service and donated more than 50 laptops to students at the event, attended by Gov. Martin O'Malley and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

A federal judge imposed a six-year sentence Friday on Jacob Theodore George IV, who sold heroin on the online drug bazaar Silk Road. George, 33, an Edgewood man with a history of arrests, drug abuse and mental health problems, apologized to the judge. He said he cried as he confessed to the federal agents who caught him. "I made a bad decision helping with Silk Road," George said, reading from prepared notes. George, who was taken into custody in early 2012, was one of the first dealers on the site to be arrested.

A federal judge in Baltimore ordered Maryland elections officials to adopt an online absentee voting tool in time for this year's general election, despite warnings from computer security experts that the system could lead to voter fraud. The ruling was sought by a group of disabled voters and the National Federation of the Blind, who say the tool will make it easier for people with disabilities to cast ballots without relying on another person. "The court today has protected the fundamental rights of voters with disabilities, including the rights to equal access and to a secret ballot," said Mark Riccobono, president of the federation.

The Maryland health exchange reported Friday that more than 411,000 people had signed up for health insurance as of July 26, up more than 38,000 from a month ago. Open enrollment on the online marketplace is closed, but those who lost their coverage, got married or have another life event were still eligible to sign up. Also, those who qualify for Medicaid are allowed to sign up year-round. Most of those who gained coverage enrolled in Medicaid. The number reflects some who also were dropped from the program because they no longer qualify.
