Veteran defensive lineman Chris Canty has studied the tape of last season for months, searching for clues to determine why his first year with the Ravens wasn't more productive. Canty has reached a few conclusions through his self-scouting, seeing chances squandered to hit the quarterback and a need to become more durable. Canty finished with just 30 tackles, two sacks, four pass deflections and two forced fumbles last season. However, none of the sacks or forced fumbles were made during the final dozen games.

The man in the red turban is a mystery, and not only because his expression is grave, alert and slightly anxious. He is richly dressed, which clearly makes him a person of some importance. There weren't a lot of black people living in Europe in the 1600s, and even fewer displayed, as this man does, signs of princely favor. It's even more unusual that he was singled out for a painting of his own instead of being included as part of a larger group. Joaneath Spicer, the curator of Renaissance and Baroque art at the Walters Art Museum , thinks she might have uncovered subtle clues in the painting itself that might explain, if not the man's name, then his role, social status and even where he was born.

EASTON -- In his vaunted autobiography, abolitionist and diplomat Frederick Douglass vividly describes life as a slave on a prominent Eastern Shore plantation, with a "great house" he recalled as an "elaborate exhibition of wealth, power and beauty." The imposing estate, by the waters of the Wye River near this Talbot County seat, still stands and is still home to the family who owned it when a young Douglass kept fireplaces stocked with wood. Listed as a national historic landmark, the Wye House, built in the late 1700s, has been studied for its clues to 18th- and 19th-century America.

The trees along the Abingdon trail basically looked identical yesterday, with bare, spindly limbs reaching toward the sky and summer coats of leaves long ago turned brown and dropped to the cold forest floor. It's a fairly simple task to tell one tree from another in the spring and summer, as leaves and buds offer plentiful hints of the lineage of each. But the hints are far fewer this time of year. Yesterday, a group of pint-size sleuths, accompanied by their bundled-up parents, set out to sort through the evidence in a program called "Winter Tree Mysteries" at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center in Harford County.

At first, the video of a man being beaten and stripped in downtown Baltimore appeared to be just another tantalizing shock clip for the Internet. But in recent days, thanks to social media users as far away as California, it could prove instrumental in solving the case. Police have made no arrests in last month's attack, but they said tips were flooding in about the identity of the man shown punching a disoriented victim before others ripped off his clothes, took his belongings and humiliated him on the sidewalk outside a city courthouse.

Is there life elsewhere in the universe? It's a question that has long intrigued astronomers and science fiction buffs alike, and now the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has launched its most ambitious attempt yet to find the answer. Curiosity, NASA's 1-ton wheeled rover vehicle, blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center on Saturday for the 346 million-mile journey to Mars, where it will spend two years roaming the Red Planet's surface in search of tell-tale organic compounds that could signal the presence of life there, either now or in the distant past.

Can we define greatness in wine? Or is something like wine so subjective as to defy qualification with regard to excellence? Many wine writers and critics associate longevity with greatness. In order to be considered great, a wine must be capable of aging. Now, age-ability is linked to four principal components: acid, alcohol, sugar and tannin. A wine must contain at least two of these four structural components in quantity to withstand the test of time. But just because a wine is built for the long haul does not necessarily make it great.

Jerry Black is a beaten man. Although we're never told so outright, you can tell this within minutes of the opening of "The Pledge" through several clues: He begins the film talking to himself, his hair looks like a bed of nails and he's got a look on his face that's perpetually stuck halfway between wary and weary. Plus, he's played by Jack Nicholson, who in the good old days - before his full bore loony persona took over - specialized in playing characters who just aren't right for this world, and know it. Nicholson is terrific here, in a role that demands he act, rather than just be Jack.

In reading the article "Relocation of district courthouse moves a step forward" ( Arbutus Times, Aug. 10), I was left with a question: What about the land at Spring Grove State Hospital Center? In these tight economic times, I wonder why our state leaders find it necessary to purchase land for over $2.5 million when the state already owns land that is underutilized, right across the street from the court's current location. I would think that our elected officials would consider it prudent to avoid unnecessary purchases, such as buying additional land, when other options are available.

Just after 2 a.m. April 17, Charlie Price realized that David Bayard, his close friend, had left the D.C. nightclub where they'd been partying for a friend's birthday. Where did he go? Price wondered, dialing Bayard's cell. Would he be able to get home? he thought, dialing again. The night was muddled by drinking, and Price can't remember whether they connected. Hours later, a detective told Price his friend had been killed. The 24-year-old University of Maryland graduate student was found dead about 7:30 a.m. in his car, which was parked near a McDonald's in Prince George's County, just a few miles from the club.
