Defending Olympic hockey champion Sweden was sent home in the quarterfinals by emerging power Slovakia. Russia, expected to score its way to a gold medal, was run out of town by Canada. Few events in this tournament have gone according to form, starting with host Canada's straining to beat Switzerland and stumbling against the U.S. in the first round, which sent the team to a qualifying game that stressed an entire nation. But each of the four teams that will meet in the semifinals today at Canada Hockey Place has displayed one consistent trait through 10 pressure-packed days here.

Rockhill was a constant threat in the Generals' home game against Baltimore County rival Eastern Tech on Wednesday and her opportunistic play paid off with a goal early in the second half.

With a booming announcer in the style of a pro-wrestling match, enough spare parts lying around to satisfy a NASCAR pit crew and enough school spirit for a Friday night football game, a newcomer looking for the robot battle might think he'd found the wrong room. But to the high school students competing this weekend in the Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, their sport is as nail-bitingly exciting as wrestling, racing and football combined - only brainier. "There are geeks in there," said Taylor Bailey, a sophomore from Woodlawn High School, one of dozens of area high schools entered in the event.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, whose once wholesome reputation took a blow in a high-profile domestic violence case this year, will no longer "raise the green flag" for M&T Bank. Rice has starred in one of the bank's most recognizable and successful branding efforts for the past four years, but the Ravens-themed advertising campaign kicked off Monday without the former pitchman. None of his teammates appear in the ads either. M&T's new advertisements instead stress the team effort between the the Ravens and their corporate sponsor, with the spokesman role shifting to Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, team President Dick Cass and the bank's president of the Baltimore region, Augie Chiasera.

The girls stand together in their skates before taking the ice. They talk animatedly as they stretch and prepare for a long practice. "They haven't seen each other in a week," one of the mothers says in passing. The Sailors, the highest-level team in the Chesapeake Synchronized Skating club, compete nationally at the intermediate level. The girls come from counties around the state and see one another only at practice, but they're close-knit. "We're just like a family now," said Blaire Burgin, a tri-captain and a Pikesville junior.

On the second floor of East Middle School, Chad Arrington, 19, split his time between scanning a seventh-grader's math worksheet on transformations and looking for the word "jihad" in a puzzle. Downstairs, Drew Strumsky, 19, leaned back in his chair as he quizzed three sixth-graders on vocabulary terms relating to Egypt. Later, near a back entrance, Kurt Rauschenberg, 25, pulled up on the bitter-cold afternoon with a camouflage-painted Humvee and howitzer. The three are McDaniel College mentors, and part of a new program called T'N'T - Trust and Teamwork - for middle school boys.

Are men and women so different in their management styles? I am beginning to wonder. For years, the conventional wisdom has preached that to be successful in the corporate ranks, women had to become more like men. Be hard driving. Work long hours, with lots of "face time. " Show unbridled ambition. Demand what you want. I have watched lots of men - and women - try this approach, which I think of as the top-down, military-style model. The funny thing is, I have not seen it work very often.

Orioles left fielder Nate McLouth entered Thursday's game with 11 stolen bases, second most in the American League. McLouth credits Manny Machado's patience at the plate hitting behind him with allowing him to be aggressive on the basepaths. "Eventually, he'll probably hit farther down the lineup, but he's a really good two-hole hitter for that reason," McLouth said. "He's willing to take pitches if he sees me go. If it happens to be early in the count, he's not afraid to get behind in the count and that's definitely important.

The Port of Baltimore had a very good year in 2012, during which it broke several cargo records and handled more autos and farm and construction machinery than any other U.S. port ("Port of Baltimore led the nation in two cargo categories in 2012, officials say," Feb. 28). I believe it is important to recognize the efforts of some of our key partners who played major roles in helping us achieve those successes. Among those partners are the Baltimore and Philadelphia districts of the Army Corps of Engineers, who keep the channels leading to the port properly dredged and maintained for the safe passage of massive cargo and cruise vessels 24 hours a day all year round.

"Project Runway" Season 11 began last night, and first of all, I'd like to say the return of Heidi Klum is such a relief after an entire season of watching Angela Lindvall, who has all the charisma of hand sanitizer. I've grown to enjoy Joanna Coles, but she is no Tim Gunn. So, welcome back to the normal "Project Runway. "   The season begins with Heidi and Tim announcing that this season will be "Project Runway: Teams. " I guess I spoke too soon when I said welcome back to normal "Project Runway," guess we needed a gimmick.

Thanks for Kevin Cowherd 's recent column on Cam Cameron ("Finishing just shy of Super Bowl is no reason to can Cameron," Jan. 27). Every week our family looked forward to watching the Ravens. Their fantastic playing was due to teamwork among the coaches and players. We are sad to be losing Chuck Pagano; the Ravens were right not to let Mr. Cameron go as well. The Ravens had an outstanding year. To keep it going next year we need to keep Mr. Cameron as our offensive coordinator.

"Dragon's Dogma" Xbox 360/PS3 Capcom Rating: 3 stars out of 4 “Dragon's Dogma” has the elements of everything you'd expect from an open-world action role-playing game with a fantasy setting. Even the box art smacks of a “Dungeons and Dragons” guide. Once you get inside “Dragon's Dogma,” you realize that it is unlike any fantasy RPG (or almost any) game you've played before. The key feature of “Dragon's Dogma” is the “pawn” system, a format that allows the player to create one “main pawn,” a character that follows you perpetually, and two other pawns that are sourced from an online database of other players' pawns.
