When it comes to thinking about people with Down syndrome, Katie Hudson wants the world to take a cue from her 6-year-old daughter, Maddie. "She always says, 'We're all a little different, and that's what makes us the same,'" Hudson said. "She gets it. " That's why Maddie will be walking in honor of her brother, Logan -- and more than 400 others will make strides for inclusion and awareness for people with Down syndrome -- at the First Annual Baltimore Buddy Walk on Nov. 2 at Padonia Park Club in Cockeysville.

In wine, there is always a story. It's a product of the earth and therefore subject to both the vagaries of Mother Nature and the winds of fate. In many instances, the grapevine thrives on barren soil in combat conditions. Yet somehow, it manages to distill a magical elixir out of pure rock and stone. And in that struggle, it crafts a liquid that possesses both heart and soul. Many years ago, when I worked in the wine wholesale industry, I had the privilege of selling both the Banfi portfolio, and the Seagram Chateau and Estates portfolio.

A Spanish business school says Baltimore is the world's 20th "smartest" city -- smarter, by their reckoning, than Rome, Berlin, Madrid, Moscow, all of Canada and anywhere in Africa. We are only a tick less smart than Chicago, which came in 19th. The "Cities in Motion Index," from Spain's IESE Business School, ranks cities using a complicated, and borderline indecipherable, set of criteria involving 10 " dimensions considered key to determining their efficiency. " They include: governance, public management, urban planning, technology, the environment, international outreach, social cohesion, mobility and transportation, human capital and the economy.

IT CAME FROM southern China, is spread by close human contact and causes a sudden high fever and flu-like symptoms -- and sometimes death. The larger world first learned early last week of this apparently new disease, dubbed SARS -- for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. Thanks to rapid air travel, by the end of the week hundreds of suspected cases had cropped up around the world, including at least 22 in the United States. And the world tally of SARS-linked deaths had risen to at least 10. This virus' quick spread is only the latest scary reminder that as the world grows ever smaller, it also becomes more vulnerable to such outbreaks -- for which much more aggressive vigilance is needed everywhere, including the United States.

A couple of Friday nights ago, it was hard to find a place to comfortably stand in World of Beer, McHenry Row's newest bar. The beer emporium was celebrating its opening weekend, and the scene was what new owners dream of: wall-to-wall customers packed inside as an outdoor patio filled up simultaneously. A band played instantly recognizable songs on stage. There were at least 200 people on the premises. It was obvious that World of Beer, a national chain founded in 2007, appeared to be off to a great start at its first Baltimore location.

The punishment came the day after Phelps announced he was checking into a six-week, in-patient treatment program to work on his personal life. “Michael's conduct was serious and required significant consequences,” USA Swimming's executive director, Chuck Wielgus, said in a statement.

Buck Showalter does not believe he's changed. Let's get that out of the way right off. In fact, he's suspicious of anyone applying a sweeping narrative of transformation to his current success as Orioles manager. "I think I'm just perceived different," he said in a hushed moment outside the clubhouse, three days after his team clinched its first American League East title since 1997. "It's funny how that changes. " The Orioles' 2014 postseason - which begins with Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers - likely represents one of Showalter's last, best chances at managing in his first World Series.

Take the explanation divorced gay dad Sean (played by out "Will & Grace" vet Hayes) gives his teenage daughter Ellie (Samantha Isler) when she asks -- in a convenient piece of pilot episode exposition -- how she came to be conceived.

Even though he anticipated his release by the only NFL organization that he had ever known, he was still angry and bitter. When Smith sat down with his family, the emotions poured out. They discussed everything - his college career at Utah, getting drafted by the Panthers, the 13 prolific seasons he played with them, and then of course, the difficult parting of ways.

My heart is very saddened today as I listen and read the media reports related to the radical and terrorist units in the Middle East who are speaking out as they describe various avenues by which they eventually hope to destroy the U.S. units in that area, particularly by the leaders of the ISIS in Iraq and Syria. In my opinion, strong defensive action must be taken at this point if the U.S. is to survive. It is possible that the U.S. could take another pounding similar to the one we received in 9/11, which was planned and executed by terrorists enjoying sanctuary in Afghanistan.
