The New Yorker profiles Under Armour [Links]

An in-depth look at the Tide Point-based fitness-wear company.

Skin in the Game [The New Yorker]: “These are clothes designed for serious activity, though many customers have noticed that they are no less suitable for serious inactivity. As a consequence, the logo seems to turn up anywhere in the country where people are dressed casually and comfortably, which is just about everywhere—Under Armour helps supply America’s national uniform.”

Names, Social Security numbers of 9,700 Marylanders with disabilities exposed in hacking [Baltimore Sun]: “Names and Social Security numbers of about 9,700 Marylanders with disabilities were exposed when a hacker breached a state contractor’s computer systems in October, state health officials said Monday.”

Baltimore budget includes property tax cut — again [The Daily Record]: “The proposed budget drops the property tax rate to $2.13 per $100 of assessed value for owner occupied homes. Last year property taxes were reduced to $2.176 per $100 of assessed value as part of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s plan to reduce property taxes for homeowners by 20 cents in 20 years.”
