Pandora soon will add its logo to the city's skyline as the company relocates its regional headquarters for the Americas and about 250 employees to Baltimore from Columbia by early 2015. The Danish jeweler known for its charm bracelets announced Thursday that it will lease five floors of the building at 250 W. Pratt St. with rights to place its bright-white logo on two sides of the skyscraper, easily visible from the stands at Oriole Park at Camden Yards . The move should serve the dual purpose of increasing Pandora's prominence in the region while accommodating the growing retailer's workforce, said Scott Burger, president of Pandora Americas.

For anyone solicitous of our precious civil liberties, the signing statement that accompanied President Obama's approval of the National Defense Authorization bill last month offers cold comfort. Concerning the most controversial feature of the bill, the president wrote: "My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. " Should we trust him? This past September, Mr. Obama summarily executed U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen.

Shoppers have come to know the Pandora name for glittering displays of customized sterling bracelets and gemstone charms sold by jewelers or the company's own retailers. But the Danish company kept a lower profile for its Maryland connection — a U.S. headquarters that's been lodged in Columbia since the brand arrived in the country in 2003. At first, the small headquarters didn't garner much notice; then the company didn't want to advertise the location because its warehouse was filled with high-priced goods.

I was shocked by a recent article that described a driving under the influence of alcohol case in Howard County wherein a Howard County judge dismissed a DUI charge against a 22-year-old woman because the judge believed the police may have been operating under some instructions that sounded a lot like a "quota" system. The Howard County police responded that some federal grant money they had been given had some "strings," some requirements if you will, that when spelled out in an email sounded a lot like a quota system.

BY APPROVING the so-called "suburban community centers" legislation that will allow the development of the Village at Waugh Chapel near Crofton, the Anne Arundel County Council may have gotten slightly ahead of itself. In salvaging a worthy project, the council may have also cracked open a Pandora's Box on future land-use policy.In one version of the Greek legend, Pandora, the first mortal woman, opened a box out of curiosity and allowed all the human blessings -- except for hope -- to escape forever.

OAKLAND, Calif. - In the beginning, there was music. Childhood and young adulthood floated by to a soundtrack of lyrics and rhythms and searing guitar riffs that consumed you, became you, constituted your identity, galvanized your intent, spoke your soul. But time passes, classrooms fade to cubicles, and a vast landscape of new music turns foreign and unexplored. For Jeff Hersh, 31, the stereo came to double as Proust's madeleine, its purpose to invoke memories rather than create them.

The owners of the arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby have a right to their religious beliefs. So do their 28,000 employees. And the citizens of the United States also have a right to a government that protects their health and welfare. Yet these interests don't necessarily align, and it's now up to the U.S. Supreme Court to sort out which rights take precedence. The justices are scheduled to hear arguments in two cases Tuesday (one involving Hobby Lobby, the other a Pennsylvania-based kitchen cabinet maker)

We start out tonight at Galang, where everybody is happy but Colton, who can't be happy because there isn't enough scheming going on. Aras correctly points out that Colton thinks  playing "Survivor" right means creating chaos, but that isn't necessarily true.

He leaves the choice of switching places to her, and she chooses for him to stay in the game, since he has a better chance of winning than she does.

The exhibit "Pandora's Box: Women in Classical Greece," which ends its run at the Walters Art Gallery on Sunday, must be counted as one of Baltimore's most successful art shows, ever.Critics have loved it. So have scholars. Attendance is expected to greatly exceed pre-opening estimates. Financially, there's a chance the show will come close to breaking even, a rarity for museum shows. Even the bulky catalog, weighing in at a hefty $39.95 for the paperback, has sold three times as many copies as the pre-exhibit estimate.

Steep projected costs for cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay could be trimmed by billions of dollars, a new study suggests, by allowing polluters to buy "credits" for less-expensive reductions made by others. The study, presented Thursday to the Chesapeake Bay Commission, an advisory panel of legislators from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia, estimates that nutrient pollution trading could trim projected costs for upgrading sewage treatment plants and controlling urban and suburban storm water pollution by $1 billion or more a year baywide.
