Area restaurants are finding some new “it” ingredients to appeal to #health-conscious customers. One unexpected additive? Detoxifying #activatedcharcoal. It's in drinks and even brownies like the one above, available at @blk.sugar at @rhousebaltimore. Baker Krystal Mack uses about a teaspoon of charcoal per batch of ten brownies - any more, she said, would kill the flavor. Born from a broken heart, her first activated charcoal brownie recipe was crafted for Valentine’s Day and paired with a charcoal cocktail at R. Bar in the Remington food hall. “My whole process was thinking just like when people are heartbroken they turn to sweets and indulge in that way,” she said. "If you’re trying to get over a lost love that you have, it can kind of detoxify your body of unwanted feelings.” (📷 by Lloyd Fox/Baltimore Sun)

In East Baltimore, a long-vacant plant that once made maps for National Geographic, as well as labels for products such as Bromo-Seltzer, is poised to be reborn as the Center for Neighborhood Innovation, hosting a mix of offices for nonprofits and commercial space.

Herd mentality: Goat yoga is gaining popularity in Maryland. (Yes, seriously)

"The ground just blew up," said 47-year-old Kevin King, who was standing across the street when a steam pipe exploded on Eutaw Street between West Lombard and Pratt Streets Tuesday evening, during rush hour and just before the Orioles game, according to the Baltimore Fire Department.

Five people suffered "low level injuries" from the explosion, which took place outside of the Holiday Inn, according to the fire department. (📷 by Carrie Wells/Baltimore Sun)

Is the Mall in Columbia better off without its signature fountain? It was removed as part of larger renovations.
On June 13, shopper Diana Saltz gazed at a large empty space across from Kay Jewelers and The Children's Place – the former location of the mall's 46-year-old iconic fountain. Saltz, a Columbia resident since 1973, said she shared many fond memories of the mall relic. "It was a kind of a gathering place. That's what I really, really liked about it," Saltz told reporter Andrew Michaels. "I loved it at Christmastime with the poinsettia tree. It had some soul and this has no soul whatsoever.” Sophanny Iorizzo, who works at Kay Jewelers at the mall, said "it's much better" without the fountain because the running water was "too loud." "I couldn't hear customers and customers couldn't hear me. We always had to scream and shout between the water fountain and [blenders running at] the smoothie stand."

Indira McDonald, left, and Risa Rubeling, called their bus driver a hero today. They boarded the #34 bus to get to their jobs at Greenspring Station. Once onboard, they found out that the bus was actually scheduled to go in the opposite direction. Driver Ray Hall dropped them off at their destination before resuming his regular route. It was a moment of confusion on the first weekday rollout of the new #BaltimoreLink bus routes, the first major overhaul of the bus system in decades. Service is free for the first two weeks of operation. (📷 by Barbara Haddock Taylor/Baltimore Sun)

Even by Nazi standards, Jasenovac was a particularly brutal death camp. Located in a remote part of Croatia, it was called “the epitome of horror” by Gen. Edmund von Horstenau, Hitler's envoy in the capital city of Zagreb.

In April 1945, 600 desperate prisoners, all on the verge of starvation, decided to stage a do-or-die mass breakout. As the prisoners breached the walls, machine gun-wielding guards shot about 520 to death.

One of those survivors was Egon Berger. His memoir, “44 Months in Jasenovac,” was translated into English, thanks to efforts by his niece, Ruth Bloch of Mt. Washington.

Two imposing fixtures define the landscape of Chesapeake City, a small town in the northeastern corner of Maryland: the C&D Canal and the Chesapeake City bridge that spans it. The town of roughly 700 residents retains its 19th century charm in the homes, shops, restaurants and inns in South Chesapeake City, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

A theory Hopkins post-doctoral fellow Hasini Jayatilaka (left) formed as an undergrad has, seven years later, led to a promising discovery about how cancer cells break off from the primary tumor and spread throughout the body. The phenomenon, known as metastasis, is blamed for 90% of cancer deaths. Read and watch a video about the research, which Jayatilaka completed with vice provost for research Denis Wirtz (right), at baltimoresun.com/health. (Amy Davis/Baltimore Sun)

There were so many shell casings on the scene of a shooting on Arydale and Forest Park avenues that detectives ran out of evidence markers to flag them all, using bits of trash instead. There have been 159 homicides in Baltimore in 2017 -- an historic pace. (📷 by Karl Merton Ferron/Baltimore Sun)
