With Gophers men's basketball, the disappointment is all connected

For confirmation of just how precarious sports outcomes can be – and the butterfly effect that ensues from one moment – go ahead and watch one more time, if you can stomach it, Darryl Morsell's game-winning three-pointer for Maryland against the Gophers with 1.9 seconds left Wednesday. The deep shot, from a couple steps behind the three-point line, rattled on enough parts of the rim that if it was just an inch to the left or an inch longer, it probably would have bounced out. The Gophers would h...

ICE has done facial recognition searches on millions of photos Maryland drivers without court approval. They appear to be targeting immigrants who sought driver’s licenses after 2013. The access sought by Maryland state officials “goes far beyond what other states allow and that alarms immigration activists in a state that grants special driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants,” report Drew Harwell and Erin Cox at the Washington Post: More than 275,000 such licenses have been issued stat...

No. 7 Maryland working to be even better in postseason

As No. 7 Maryland charges toward another Big Ten title, coach Brenda Frese is already preparing the team for a deep run in March.

Suckers List: How Allstate's Secret Auto Insurance Algorithm Squeezes Big Spenders

Insurers are supposed to price based on risk, but Allstate's algorithm put a thumb on the scale. From a report: Seven years ago, Allstate Corporation told Maryland regulators it was time to update its auto insurance rates. The insurer said its new, sophisticated risk analysis showed it was charging nearly all of its 93,000 Maryland customers outdated premiums. Some of the old rates were off by miles. One 36-year-old man from Prince George's County, Md., who Allstate said in public records should...

Mark Turgeon still frustrated with officials as Maryland prepares for next test at Minnesota

That didn't stop head coach Mark Turgeon from making a point to call out the officiating Sunday. Turgeon lost his most important, and experienced, player with just a few minutes left in the game thanks to a technical foul given out by the officiating crew after Anthony Cowan kicked his foot out in frustration after a no-call. The Maryland head coach unsurprisingly came to the defense of Cowan, but didn't directly complain about the officials in regards to the call.

“In liberal Takoma Park, a bold new climate proposal: Banning fossil fuels”

Oh! Takoma! “Takoma Park, the liberal enclave just outside Washington known as the ‘Berkeley of the East,’ is debating whether to outlaw gas stoves, leaf blowers and water heaters. The proposal… would ban all gas appliances, close fossil fuel pipelines, and move gas stations outside city limits by 2045. The cost to the average homeowner could reach $25,000, officials wrote.” [Rebecca Tan, Washington Post] Tags: climate change, Maryland, oil industry
