USAir and Air Canada, two airlines struggling to compete with the giants of the industry, are exploring the idea of linking routes and other operations to broaden their reach and cut costs, the two companies said yesterday.The agreement in principle called for the two companies to combine such areas as operations, technical research, marketing and investments, the companies said. No timetable has been set for consummating the "strategic alliance," spokesmen for the companies said.Yesterday's announcement stemmed from on-again, off-again talks begun by USAir and Air Canada as both companies battle the effects of a recession that has badly squeezed an increasingly troubled airline industry in this country and Canada.

It has been several years since Hugh Schmittle ditched a well-paying job as a federal crime investigator and began building -- in his living room -- the airplane he thought could significantly change the course of aviation.Eccentric? Perhaps. But such are inventors.Mr. Schmittle, a self-taught aviation engineer, heads up fledgling Freewing Aerial Robotics, a College Park company he co-founded in 1989. Since then, he and a small cadre of engineers have struggled to fine-tune and find backers for an old idea: the rocking wing or "free wing" aircraft, a forgotten footnote in aviation history until it lit a fire in Mr. Schmittle.

From texting to browsing the Web to eating in the car, driver distraction has become a growing problem on the roadways. In 2010, more than 3,000 people died in accidents believed to have been caused by distracted driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In December, the National Transportation Safety Board recommended a nationwide ban on using smartphones while driving, including the use of hand-held devices for non-emergencies. It's against the law to talk on a hand-held phone while driving in Maryland.

The University System of Maryland Board of Regents identified two very good reasons not to move forward right now with a merger of Maryland's flagship campus in College Park with its professional schools in Baltimore. The first is that doing a merger right would cost something on the order of a quarter billion dollars — money necessary to integrate data systems, create new research programs and build new facilities. Given the fiscal strain the state is under, that's not a realistic possibility right now. The second good reason is that, as Chancellor William E. "Britt" Kirwan pointed out, mergers do not work well when one side is opposed to it, and that appears inescapably to be the case with the Baltimore schools and virtually all civic leaders in the city.

After months of debate, the University of Maryland's governing board recommended Friday that the system's two largest research campuses, in Baltimore and College Park, remain separate institutions. The Board of Regents voted unanimously against a full merger of the institutions, calling instead for a "strategic alliance. " "The board's recommendation of an alliance should not be seen as a step toward a merger," the regents said in their report, released at an afternoon meeting in College Park.

IF "merger" is the nineties' buzzword among big-name companies, "strategic alliance" is the term gaining strength among smaller ones.Such alliances are often informal agreements among companies exchange anything from personnel to services to customer lists.And financial advisers are finding themselves more responsible for helping clients hook up, as they attempt to achieve long-term goals at the low costs attractive in a decade of downsizing.What makes these alliances so attractive? How do they work?
