Ravens reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson was arrested and charged with suspicion of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia Friday night, according to the Gainesville, Fla., police department. Police said an officer " noticed a strong odor of burned cannabis" coming from a Chevrolet SUV, which had been pulled over about 11:45 p.m. Friday night for driving without its headlights on. A search of the vehicle found bags totaling 29 grams of marijuana inside a duffel bag, but Thompson said only the bag was his. The driver, Alvon Summerall, and another passenger, Erskine J. McKinley , said the drugs were their own. Thompson played at Florida and was signed by the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

Heard for mercy when punishing Syed because the killing was "a crime of passion." "He made a bad decision," Syed's attorney, Charles H. Dorsey III, told Heard.

Q: Jalapeno peppers seem to vary so much in their heat that I never know what result I will get with a recipe. Any suggestions?A: Fresh jalapeno peppers do have different heat levels, so I have come to rely on jarred pickled jalapenos for recipes, for both heat and convenience. No need to don gloves to cut and remove seeds. Just use the amount called for in the recipe (adding a little extra if you want it quite spicy). One medium jalapeno pepper equals one generous tablespoon of pickled, sliced jalapenos.

And in whatever form a mask appears, color is integral to its meaning. Now color is the subject of the second installment of Meditations on African Art, a three-part series at the Baltimore Museum of Art that explores African art from the point of view of the people who created it. The modestly scaled show presents about 30 traditional African masks from the museum's collection arranged in four groups: red, white, black and the tricolor that incorporates all three hues.

My 8-year-old daughter has been coughing up blood. Otherwise, she seems fine.How worried should I be about this?Coughing up blood (called hemoptysis by doctors) should always be taken seriously.It is an unusual symptom in childhood. When it does occur, it may be a sign of a lung disease that requires treatment.Before listing some of the most common causes of hemoptysis during childhood, we want to point out that it is not always easy to tell whether the blood is coming from the lungs or the stomach, but both are important.

The elderly woman said her neighbors are driving her crazy. They have noisy parties, their kids throw junk in her yard and their dog barks at all hours of the night. When she complains, the neighbors are rude.She calls the police but they are busy with more serious crime."So I went to a lawyer in my neighborhood and asked him if he could do something," she said. "But he told me that mostly he does real estate closings and wills and things like that. And that it was just a neighbor thing and it wouldn't be worth his bother, and besides, I couldn't afford it."
