City to host application sessions for 1,000 Amazon jobs [Baltimore Sun]: “Amazon is opening a 1 million square-foot distribution center this spring at the site of the former General Motors plant in Southeast Baltimore. There, workers will pack and ship books, electronics and other items ordered through the online giant.”

Baltimore’s transportation remains a puzzle after 50 years [SpliceToday]: “The imaginary line from east to west across the city that has engaged and infuriated Baltimoreans for half a century was seared across the map by an out-of-towner who had little interest in the city but would bulldoze any property in his way to stake a claim and enlarge his asphalt empire.”

Johns Hopkins to give $15M to faculty researchers over next 3 years [Baltimore Business Journal]: “Total grant money flowing to the university has continued to increase, but it is coming in at a much slower rate. Older, more well-established researchers are getting grants, while young researchers with less evidence to back their work are often left out.”

The Uber PuppyBowl didn’t come to every big city (sorry, New York and Philly!), but it did come to Baltimore. Those pups made a bunch of stops in Federal Hill on Wednesday, as workers at Betamore, ZeroFOX and Parking Panda apparently couldn’t resist the cuteness.
