The Orioles four All Stars - Chris Davis, Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado -- met with the media before Monday's game. After talking about their All-Star selections, the group was asked about the 21-year-old Machado's defense and, specifically, the play he made Sunday in New York in which a grounder kicked off his glove into foul territory. Machado grabbed the ball and, with his momentum taking him six, eight, 10 feet into foul territory, turned and, on his back foot, threw a laser to first for the out.  The quartet was asked whether that was Machado's best defensive play as a big leaguer - he joined the club last August - and the press conference turned into a mini-roundtable symposium on Machado's glove.

Colin Cloherty was a seldom-used tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, his third team in his first two years in the NFL, when the league locked out its players at the start of a long, contentious labor showdown in 2011. A former standout at Brown, where he double-majored in history and political science, Cloherty pored over every memo the National Football League Players Association sent to its players after the union decertified and sued the NFL, and he listened intently during every conference call.

A grinning teenage girl confesses to the camera in a YouTube video sponsored by the Howard County Public Library that she checks her texts and emails "an inappropriate number of times a day. " With a quick laugh and a shrug, she seems to say, "Who doesn't?" The teen may epitomize the stereotype used by some adults to deride today's generation of teens and young adults for spending their waking hours staring at their smartphone, tablet and computer screens in lieu of face-to-face communication.

Saddled with student loan debt, Dr. Laura Herrera joined the Army Reserve to help pay off medical school bills and perhaps get a chance to see the world. The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks hit shortly after she enlisted, and her military career took an unanticipated turn. Long deployments away from her kids in places like Wisconsin, Texas and Iraq replaced visions of trips to more exotic locales. Still, Herrera said, she began to feel a kinship with the other soldiers and a strong desire to serve her country and do more with her military career.

Scientists from the National Aquarium and the Johns Hopkins University say they've found low but potentially harmful levels of toxic oil contaminants in the Gulf of Mexico months after the Deepwater Horizon well blowout was capped. Erik Rifkin, interim executive director of the aquarium's conservation center, and Yongseok Hong, a post-doctoral fellow at Hopkins, say that using devices that mimic the way fish absorb contaminants in their environment, they've detected oil-related chemical compounds on the Louisiana coast that traditional water sampling methods mostly missed.
