The Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute said Tuesday that it has awarded $3.8 million to 17 teams trying to bring technology products to market, seven of them involving companies in the Baltimore region. The institute's Maryland Industrial Partnerships program funds research with commercial potential involving faculty in the University System of Maryland, at Morgan State University or St. Mary's College of Maryland. Maryland-based companies working with researchers must match the funding.

The inspector general of the U.S. Postal Service is urging the agency to take a cue from the port of Baltimore and expand its partnerships with private businesses to cut costs and modernize its infrastructure. In a report released last month, Inspector General David C. Williams recommended that the Postal Service adopt a cohesive strategy for forging more public-private partnerships with businesses as a way of bringing needed cash into the system, which posted a $15.9 billion loss in 2012.

Whether the Grand Prix of Baltimore, which will be run for a third time this Labor Day weekend, can survive depends on two factors: First, drawing and establishing fans of open-wheel racing during a time when the sport has struggled to keep people interested . Second, appeasing downtown businesses hurt by having the streets turned into a race track for the month of August. Organizers have taken many steps toward solving the first problem, moving an area for children inside -- away from the heat and noise -- and promising to book more entertainment options.

Residents can expect to see a "dramatic" law enforcement increase this weekend and through the July Fourth holiday, as city and police officials search for ways to tamp down a spree of deadly violence. Police officials vowed to deploy up to three times the number of officers typically on the streets over the weekend, with the city's patrol forces being joined by officers from the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Transportation Authority and the Baltimore City sheriff's office.

Now that Major League Soccer has its first openly gay player , the league is launching a new effort to tackle anti-gay attitudes and encourage inclusion in its ranks. Through a partnership with the You Can Play Project, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting LGBT discrimination in sports, the MLS and MLS Players Union hope to build on existing anti-discrimination efforts to offer greater support for gay players and fans. "The diversity found in our League has always been a point of pride for us," MLS commissioner Don Garber said in a statement released today.

At the behest of business owners - and using their financial contributions - the Waterfront Partnership is extending its safety and cleaning services into the heart of Fells Point. "It's really a great example of a community coming together to better the place that they live, work and play," said Mike Maraziti, president of Fell's Point Main Street Inc., a nonprofit that promotes commerce in the neighborhood. About 30 businesses and a few residents chipped in more than $150,000 to hire the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore Inc. to empty garbage cans, sweep sidewalks and provide safety patrols, said Maraziti, who owns One-Eyed Mike's tavern, near the corner of South Bond and Aliceanna streets.

For Capt. Martin Noorsalu, deploying to Afghanistan with the Maryland National Guard last year was an unusual opportunity. Noorsalu is one of only a dozen helicopter pilots in the Estonian Air Force. The sole air defense service of the former Soviet republic numbers some 400 personnel. They fly four helicopters. But from September to December, Noorsalu and fellow Estonian Air Force Capt. Rene Kallis flew medical evacuation missions in Afghanistan with Maryland National Guard members in the 1st General Support Aviation Battalion of the 169th Aviation Regiment.

You are doing a disservice to readers presenting the lobbyist cheerleader version of public-private partnerships or "P3" without a cautionary review of the history of their unfettered development ("The future of infrastructure," May 9). Just consider Sandy Apgar's statement: "Business partnerships succeed on handshakes and prosper with cooperation but fail if they become adversarial. Although P3 terms must be formalized on paper, a P3 that relies on its contract, not its leaders, to solve policy and operational problems is doomed to fail.

There's a P3 in your future. Maryland is poised to join 34 states and key federal agencies in transforming the way government works. The new mantra, "P3," is shorthand for public-private partnerships. Maryland's P3 legislation, championed by Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, enables state agencies to engage business in planning, financing, building and operating public projects, from roads and rail to schools and other infrastructure. These could offset up to 10 percent of the state's capital budget, or $300 million annually, and create thousands of jobs.
