New Carrollton police say an officer's cruiser was stolen while he helped another officer serve a warrant. Police say the officer left the car unlocked and running about 3 a.m. Sunday at an apartment building while responding to a call for backup. New Carrollton Police Chief David Rice says the cruiser was found about an hour later parked between two buildings down the block. The police chief says the trunk had been opened -- but nothing was missing and the car had minimal damage.

Every time we lose another child to gun violence, we hear outrage about the senselessness of the tragedy and any proposed solutions often devolve into a polarizing debate over gun regulation. This debate, although critical, obscures a tangible solution that all parents can and should do to protect their child. Asking Saves Kids, or ASK, urges parents to ask their neighbors, friends and relatives if there is an unlocked gun in the home before sending their children over to play. Over one-third of homes with children have guns.

For anyone who enjoys bike riding or hiking, the path along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal is special. Riding there on a recent chilly spring morning, I see the Potomac River to my left, serene in some spots, roaring with foamy fury in others. To my right, the opaque emerald of the canal's sluggish water glints in the sun, chopped into segments by wooden locks. Mallards bob in groups and egrets take flight as joggers keep pace alongside their dogs. These days, enjoying the towpath doesn't have to mean heading home at dusk or even setting up a tent at a campground.

An idea conceived during a police captain's lunchtime walk has become a warning aimed at preventing theft from vehicles -- and if you leave your car unlocked in Towson, it could turn up on your windshield.Capt. George Harvey, who heads Towson Precinct, was walking to his credit union before Christmas when he saw a woman's purse on the seat of an unoccupied car. Such an invitation to theft annoyed him, so on the way back he took a harder look: Counting the cars that were unlocked or with visible valuables inside.

The power? That blunt-force ability to lay wood to a baseball and propel it 400, 420, 450 feet? He had it even when he was a boy. Came from God, as far as he's concerned. Harnessing it? Well, that's the work of Chris Davis' life. There's a paradoxical quality to the Orioles' first baseman, who has emerged this season as one of baseball's most fearsome sluggers, a likely All-Star starter who leads the majors with 22 home runs. Growing up in East Texas, Davis was like a puppy with big paws, bowling over everything.

President Barack Obama wants to invest an initial $110 billion in a study of the human brain that could have benefits as great as those achieved by the Human Genome Project. Maybe the first study should be done on the one-track minds of tea party Republicans who will undoubtedly oppose funding for the study because their brains are fixated on the single idea that government can do nothing right. After that, researchers could move on to figuring out Sarah Palin's brain. Perhaps they could answer this question: How can a person with so little knowledge and so little interest in acquiring knowledge imagine she has what it takes to be president of the United States?

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security now incarcerates, via immigration detention, more people per year than any other state or federal agency. In 2012, the DHS detained over 429,000 noncitizens awaiting immigration hearings or deportation, at a $2 billion cost to taxpayers. Yet the DHS' new risk assessment technology, which comprehensively and individually assesses immigrant detainees and collects valuable data, makes it possible for Congress to improve detention practices while reforming broader U.S. immigration laws.

A few years ago I raised my hand at an auction and bought a box of 19th-century sepia-toned landscape photographs. After hours of looking at them, I detected that they had been taken not far away, in the heart of the Jones Falls Valley in Baltimore City, before an elevated highway and 125 years of development intervened. The other morning I was standing in the bottom floor of the old cotton warehouse at the Mount Vernon Mill on Falls Road, an amazing property that will make its debut this spring as Mill No. 1, a residential and office complex.

About three times each week, an enterprising researcher at theUniversity of Maryland, College Park, takes a step toward patenting an invention. Each year, that results in the creation of about five new high-tech firms, the kinds of businesses often credited with creating good jobs. That's a good start, but the school's goal is to double that rate in the next few years. With a small but smartly focused investment by the state, we can get there - and all Marylanders can benefit.

To understand the impact meditation can have on the human mind, picture a glass of muddy water. If you stir it, the water stays cloudy and anything that might sink to the bottom is instantly sucked back into motion. But if you allow the glass to become still, slowly the dirt settles to the bottom and the water begins to clear. Meditation means different things to different people, but most agree that it is a means of quieting the mind, of stilling the parade of daily distractions and becoming less reactive to the stimulation that assaults our senses and emotions every waking hour.
