Second baseman Robert Andino, who was hit in the head by a pitch Friday night, was back in the lineup after passing his final concussion test and getting clearance from the Oriolesmedical staff. He said yesterday that he felt fine and that there would be no emotional carryover into Sunday's series finale. Even if one of the Boston pitchers buzzes one close to him? “I'm not going to do nothing stupid," Andino said. “I can't get suspended or anything like that.” Manager Buck Showalter said before the game that he might reinforce that concept with Andino and the team with the Orioles just 11 days from the end of the regular season and positioned pretty well for at least a wild card berth.

Climate change has been in the news a lot lately. The United Nations held a Climate Change Summit, which was attended by more than 100 heads of state. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of New York for a "People's Climate March," the biggest such event ever. But there was a third very important climate-related development that received much less attention than it warranted: President Barack Obama issued a new executive order that may prove to be a turning point for efforts to advance climate preparedness around the world and for U.S. foreign aid planning.

Science tells us that the overuse of antibiotics is leading to "super bugs," bacteria that are increasingly difficult if not impossible to kill with antibiotics. The biggest users — and arguably abusers — of antibiotics are large-scale industrial farms. More than 70 percent of antibiotics are used on livestock and poultry, and at many facilities, antibiotics are fed to animals that aren't sick. This enables the animals to grow faster and lets them stay healthy despite cramped, confined quarters where bacteria abound.

The Maryland Attorney General's office moved Thursday to stop a pyramid scheme by a Gambrills company and its owner who allegedly bilked about 500 people out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by promising commissions as well as free rent and a car for a year in exchange for recruiting more investors. The scheme started to fall apart when rent checks bounced and the duped investors were evicted. More than 115 people paid several thousand dollars into the sham company for an apartment, and most have been tossed out, according to authorities.

Doctors who have access to computer test results order more tests than doctors who don't, according to a new study that challenges an assumption about electronic health records. The study in the March issue of the journal Health Affairs found that doctors with access to computerized images ordered 40 to 70 percent more imaging and lab tests. The study authors warn that pushing for more health information technology might not deliver cost savings from reductions in duplicative or inappropriate tests and could drive up costs.

The state attorney general's office is appealing a federal judge's ruling ordering Maryland to use an absentee ballot-marking technology for the disabled that the Board of Elections had refused to certify as secure. The state will ask the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., to throw out District Judge Richard D. Bennett's decision this month. Bennett found that the election board's refusal to implement the program violated the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. The attorney general's office filed a notice of intent to appeal Monday but did not spell out its objections to the ruling.

The chief financial officer of Prince George's County public schools and his wife resigned Monday, after the Maryland Insurance Administration found that the couple committed fraud on their personal insurance. The school system is also ordering "external independent auditors to confirm there are no improprieties" relating to its $1.8 million budget, according to a statement issued by board chairman Segun Eubanks and schools chief executive Kevin Maxwell. The Baltimore Sun informed school officials Friday of the insurance agency's findings that chief financial officer Colby White, and his wife, Keisha White, an auditor for the schools, knowingly submitted false information to an insurance company last year in an attempt to receive payment for a lost diamond ring that another insurer had covered six months earlier.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has lifted a cease and desist order that 1st Mariner Bank has operated under since April 2009, the bank announced Monday. The order required 1st Mariner to strengthen its fair lending practices because the FDIC suspected 1st Mariner of discriminating against Hispanic, black and female mortgage borrowers. The bank charged some of these borrowers more than "similarly-situated" white and male borrowers in 2005, 2006 and 2007, the regulator said.

A Baltimore jury has awarded nearly $2.1 million to a 17-year-old city youth who was allegedly poisoned by lead paint in the 1990s when he was a toddler in an East Baltimore rental home. The judgment against Elliot Dackman and the estates of Sandra and Bernard Dackman came Friday in Baltimore Circuit Court, at the end of the weeklong trial of a lawsuit brought on behalf of Daquantay Robinson by his mother, Tiesha Robinson. The jury verdict shows the long-running tide of litigation over the widespread use of lead-based paint in Baltimore's older rental housing has yet to ebb, according to Bruce Powell, the Robinsons' lawyer.

Baltimore County prosecutors will attempt Friday to resume the murder trial of Jeffrey Shiflett, whose courtroom outbursts caused a judge to call for additional psychiatric evaluations. The Annapolis man is accused of stabbing his former girlfriend to death. Circuit Judge Ruth Ann Jakubowski ordered evaluations by mental health professionals after Shiflett's wails, sometimes obscene and threatening, raised concern that he is no longer able to comprehend the proceedings. A court-appointed psychiatrist testified Thursday that Shiflett is not competent to stand trial.
