Signaling a major redesign in the way it provides medical care, Sinai Hospital in recent weeks has eliminated or revamped a half-dozen management positions, including three vice presidents' jobs.The changes, described as a "modest restructuring" by a hospital spokesman, are the first to come from a 7-month-old project to redesign the way care is delivered throughout the hospital, and this week led to the resignation of the chief of nursing."We are one of hundreds of hospitals nationwide embarked on a program in which we look at who we care for and how we organize ourselves to provide care," said Lawrence R. Tarnoff, vice president for public relations and marketing.

Even as the Baltimore Police Department faces criticism over its handling of an officer caught on video punching a suspect, an outside audit of the Internal Affairs Division has raised questions about the thoroughness and fairness of the agency's misconduct investigations. A Baltimore lawyer who is a national expert on police discipline discovered "many flaws" within the Internal Affairs Division, including detectives who lack proper training, work under decades-old processes and are often pulled from their duties for other tasks.

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore recently redesigned its website as part sales pitch and part guide. The reworked site offers information about community news, events, where to live, eat, shop and where to park in an effort to draw more people to live in the city, help new residents get to know downtown and be a tool for visitors. The local nonprofit's goal was to make the site, godowntownbaltimore.com, more useful for consumers in Baltimore, with a focus on "functionality, layout and design," said Michael Evitts, a spokesman for the partnership.

One thing you'll learn by the briefcase-full in the University of Maryland's MBA program is fluent 1990s bizspeak.Students and professors alike can talk about "continuous improvement," "organizational re-engineering" and "total quality" until they sound like the Tom Peters tabernacle choir.The difference in College Park is that they're living the lingo.Instead of just parroting the lessons of "change management," the Maryland Business School itself has just gone through a revamping drastic enough to warm the heart of a McKinsey & Co. consultant.

In a city that has become the symbol for rebuilding in America, the Ravens take their reconstructed offense today to New Orleans, where they will play their first game since firing offensive coordinator Jim Fassel. The Ravens' attack still is searching for an identity, a few big plays and a capable running game. But with coach Brian Billick taking over the play-calling, the Ravens believe they finally have found their spark. Ravens@Saints Today, 1 p.m., chs. 13, 9, 1090 AM, 97.9 FM Line: Saints by 1 1/

To explore Maryland neighborhoods and Bay and Beach towns, go to www.SunSpot.net/neighborhoodsNORFOLK, Va. -- The "new" Norfolk hasn't yet sparked the hype of, say, Atlanta or Charlotte. But this historic city's continuing urban renaissance could make it the next gleaming gem of the so-called New South. Situated along waterways where the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean meet, the nearly 400-year-old city has chiefly been known for maritime operations, shipbuilding and as home to the world's largest naval station.

WASHINGTON -- Bob Shrum may be the best reason to take Al Gore at his word when he proclaims over and over again, "We've only just begun to fight." As the vice president has turned around his fortunes, derailing once-formidable challenger Bill Bradley with a more pugilistic style, he has been aided by a veteran Washington media man known for playing rough, one whose handiwork has already been previewed by the Maryland electorate. Shrum -- who has the dubious distinction of having produced an ad for Gov. Parris N. Glendening that Campaigns & Elections magazine named the "Most Brutally Effective Attack Spot" of 1998 -- has been a key player in the revamped Gore campaign since September.

As a Field Artillery officer in the 82nd Airborne Division and a veteran of the Afghanistan Campaign, I've been called a lot of things, but never unprincipled. But with the way some of my fellow Republicans talk, I'm Benedict Arnold. Since leaving the Army a little over a year ago, I moved to Maryland to restart my civilian life. My partner and I, finally together after two years of back-to-back deployments, bought a house with a big yard on a quiet cul de sac and settled into our routine.

Nothing inspires change more than failure. In what has become a refrain since the end of the men's 2013 lacrosse season, Johns Hopkins' 41-year streak of NCAA tournament appearances was snapped and a program that ranks second only to Syracuse with nine national championships could only watch Duke claim its second NCAA title in four years. The absence of a postseason convinced head coach Dave Pietramala and offensive coordinator Bobby Benson experiment with changes throughout the team.

Gov. Martin O'Malley and legislative leaders are pushing for a new system to quickly determine whether criminal suspects are eligible for release without bail - a move they say will resolve constitutional concerns over the rights of defendants before trial. The overhaul would change a decades-old system under which District Court commissioners either set suspects' bail after arrest, deny bail or let them go. The state's top court has ruled that the process violates defendants' right to counsel because public defenders are not provided.

As one might anticipate, the anointing of a new head coach has led to some changes at Hood. Brad Barber, an assistant coach under Jeremy Mattoon who was promoted in July after Matton and the school parted ways, is careful not to criticize his predecessor. But Barber did say that the players' attitude is different thus far. “This is a new year, and one of the biggest things we did this fall in fall ball was we really understood the type of athletes that we have,” he said. “We tried to put in a new mentality, and everyone's bought in. Everyone's on the same page, everyone's accepted their responsibility, we're getting out in the community more.

A gleaming new apartment building with restaurants and bars on the ground floor has replaced an old pizza place and tire shop. A new Whole Foods will sprout up just down the road. A four-star hotel and bike lanes are planned. The changes are part of a longer-term effort to transform U.S. 1 - the University of Maryland, College Park's main drag - from a jumbled mix of strip malls and fast-food joints. After a decade of slow progress, the building spree jump-starts a plan to remake the city of College Park into a "real" college town.

San Francisco (1-1) at N.Y. Jets (1-1) Time: 9 p.m., chs. 2, 7. Line: Jets by 3. Ken Murray's outlook: The 49ers are 34-20 on Monday night, and one more win ties them with Miami for most Monday night victories. The Jets have some history in prime time, too. They scored 30 points in the fourth quarter of a Monday night game against Miami last year and won in overtime. The QB matchup of San Francisco's Jeff Garcia and New York's Vinny Testaverde could produce some electricity. Both defenses look vulnerable, although the return of LB Julian Peterson will help the 49ers.

Cottle not the man for Maryland lacrosse So Maryland men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle thinks his team can average at least eight goals with a revamped, motion offense ("Division I outlook," Feb. 16). Wasn't Cottle brought to Maryland in 2001 to help revamp a sluggish offense? Instead, Maryland has continued to be defensive-minded in his tenure, and Cottle has done nothing to warrant heaping praise. His Terps teams have lost in the NCAA semifinals, and Cottle's reputation as a great regular-season coach but an underachiever in the playoffs has endured.

Dundalk's high school deteriorated during the past two decades just as the community's once-bustling steel mill declined. From the school's top floor, you could see the Key Bridge and the detritus of a shuttered industrial past. Inside, the school mirrored the dilapidation. The windows had clouded over, no air conditioning meant classroom temperatures would soar, and the roof leaked so badly that large garbage cans were strategically placed during storms to catch water dripping through the ceiling.

When Toni Coleman walked into Career Connections in Baltimore's Park Heights a month ago, she saw the rows of computers and training classrooms she'd expected of a new employment center. But Coleman, who's struggled for about a year to find work, said she hadn't expected the personal attention that helped her not only polish an outdated resume and ferret out job possibilities but regain some confidence. A volunteer at the center, run by St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, sat down with her over several days to rewrite her resume and point her to some promising leads.
