One might be tempted to give the clip some sort of catchy "Zapruder" label, except there's nothing grainy about Padraig Harrington's position on the Abu Dhabi green — which is precisely why it could be the catalyst for change. Harrington nudges his ball while picking up the coin used to mark it.

Harrington's ball clearly didn't return to its original spot.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

Here's the part where you tell me how wrong (or how right!) I was on a review. This week's bar review is on the legendary, enormous, impossible-to-dislike Blob's Park in Jessup. Blob's Park has been in Maryland since 1933, and claims to be the first place in America to celebrate Oktoberfest. As the Bavarian celebration winds down, it might be the spot in town for oompah music and German beer. From the review , "Blob's is Maryland's very own Valhalla, a beer hall as big as an airport hangar where German culture is celebrated year-round, though with especially distinguished gusto during these few weeks in the fall.

The recent developments in the Middle East, the statements of the U.S. President on necessity to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian issues, and the many articles published in The Baltimore Sun have urged me to speak up. I have been personally involved in some of these issues; I was in Israel during the 1967 war and later too. I have seen and participated in the life of many Israeli people. I have also seen the misery of the Palestinians caused by people like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake won praise from clergy and community leaders Friday after calling for a federal investigation into allegations of police brutality - a move that is all but certain to draw added scrutiny on City Hall. But careful observers noted the request from Rawlings-Blake and Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts came hours after another official - City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young - raised his hand to invite the U.S. Department of Justice in for a closer look.

Worked into a lather by outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai's lack of gratitude to the United States, HBO's comically blustering John Oliver came up with the perfect revenge over the weekend. He read aloud negative Internet reviews of The Helmand, the Baltimore restaurant run by Karzai's brother, Qayum. The contretemps started when Hamid Karzai, in a farewell speech delivered last week, thanked many nations for helping Afghanistan and its people, but pointedly left out the United States or any mention of the 2,000 American casualties incurred during years of fighting in the region.

The Baltimore Book Festival, once an annual staple in Mount Vernon Square, is smack dab in the touristy Inner Harbor this year, a move that got mostly positive reviews Saturday. Some who took part in the festival in Mount Vernon say they miss the venue and add that it's too early to say which is better. Others thought that featuring the festival at the harbor would give tourists a good impression of the city. "Down here, you have people that are not just coming to the book festival.

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.

David Hart is a bit of an anomaly in the world of fashion. In an industry dominated by larger-than-life personalities, fickle taste and cutthroat politics, he prefers to play nice, stay cool and let his work do the talking. "I really appreciate all the people that I've met and the relationships I've built," said Hart, 32. "I treat people the way I like to be treated. I really respect the talent of the people I've worked with. As a result, people respect me as well. " His approach has ingratiated him with the fashion elite.

The state ethics board is reviewing one of the firms bidding to build and operate the Purple Line after the engineering company was acquired by another MTA contractor. Engineering design firm AECOM, which in 2011 was awarded an 8-year, $60-million contract with the MTA to oversee the Purple Line and the proposed Red Line in Baltimore, among other projects, announced in July that it had reached an agreement to acquire engineering and construction firm URS Corp. URS Corp. is the lead design company for a group known as the Maryland Purple Line Partners, one of four groups that have been short-listed by the state to submit proposals for what will be a public-private partnership with the state to build the transit line linking Montgomery and Prince George's counties.
