OAK BROOK, Ill. -- She is the sun in her child's life, the source of unconditional love and the bedrock of security in a world of chaos and complexity. The weight of a mother's responsibility is tremendous, even in affluent countries. But the burden is so much greater for mothers who live in poor countries. For 90 percent of the children who go to bed hungry every night, the problem is not an absence of food at the local market. The problem is insufficient income to buy enough food. Moreover, the world's poorest are women, often the sole support of their children.

In recent months, two groups of robbers have launched brazen plots to rob Maryland banks by kidnapping branch managers at their homes and forcing them at gunpoint to lead thieves to the loot. Both plots - including one last weekend in which a Clinton family was kidnapped - were ultimately foiled by authorities. The two cases in Southern Maryland are among a small run of incidents across the country this year in which robbers kidnap bank employees to gain entry to a bank. But even as official statistics kept by the FBI show that bank robberies are on the rise this year, the agency doesn't track kidnappings of bank officials in its quarterly statistics because such incidents remain rare, an FBI spokesman said.

Even in Baltimore's relatively affordable real estate market, $175,000 will go only so far.It will buy a lower-level condominium at HarborView, a good-sized townhouse in Charles Village, or a fixer-upper near Wiltondale.

Revenue slid about 1 percent. SunTrust's earnings gain helped send bank stocks higher because they signaled loan defaults are ebbing, investors said.

Reaching for a leader with business and political ties, SunTrust Bank has tapped Greater Baltimore Committee President Donald P. Hutchinson to head its Maryland division, the fifth-largest bank in the state with $5.3 billion in deposits. The former Baltimore County executive and veteran of state politics will take over as president and chief executive officer Nov. 1. He will succeed J. Scott Wilfong, who left to take the top job at SunTrust's Atlanta operation. "One of my big challenges ... was my commitment that we would have somebody who would be a high-profile individual who would be very well known to the community in leading the growth of the bank," Wilfong said of the search for his replacement.
