As expected, Johns Hopkins' 12-10 loss to Syracuse on Saturday sparked some soul-searching on the part of the Blue Jays. It's a natural consequence when a team drops its first game after opening the season with five consecutive wins. But coach Dave Pietramala said he hopes that the setback hasn't fundamentally impacted the players. “The key is you treat your wins and losses the same and you learn from them,” he said on Thursday morning. “That's a hard thing to do emotionally and mentally.

SUN REPORTER Jim Haner's Nov. 26 article about changes brought to some Patterson Park area streets by a sudden stream of Section 8 tenants underscores the fragility of many Baltimore inner-city neighborhoods.This should not come as news to anyone, certainly not to City Hall or housing officials. After all, the demolition in the 1960s of 971 houses to accommodate a one-mile stretch of I-170 in the Franklin Street corridor led to a heavy -- and unplanned -- concentration of uprooted families along lower Reisterstown Road and Park Heights Avenue.

A tool that contains a small amount of radioactive material, used to measure concentrations of lead in paint, was stolen in Baltimore Monday afternoon, the Maryland Department of the Environment said in an alert. The department said the tool, a Dynasil RMD LPA-1 analyzer, stolen after a property inspection in the 2600 block of E. Monument St., poses "no imminent public health risk. " The radioactive material inside the three-pound device is sealed and housed in a tungsten shield, with locks to prevent its shutter from being opened, the department said.

WASHINGTON - Opponents of greater media concentration expressed outrage yesterday over a congressional maneuver that could allow more consolidation in the television industry. The move late Monday was a "total violation" of protocol, Sen. Ernest F. Hollings, a South Carolina Democrat, said in a statement. White House officials and Republican congressional leaders "went into a closet, met with themselves, and announced a `compromise"' on how many TV stations one company could own, he said.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Golf is the perfect sport for the obsessive personality, a giant gray area. You can't shoot a perfect round because there is no such thing. You can't have the perfect swing because there is no such thing. Even the best golfers find fault with their best rounds. Compulsive characters thrive in the vague climate. Everyone always thinks there is room to do better.The game is populated by those so single-minded, men who spend hundreds of hours hitting practice balls and talking elbow adjustment, men who die with their cleats on. Such tunnel vision is a part of every sport, of course, but it is suited to golf like Augusta to spring.

Some of the Ravens either didn't know or didn't care about all that needed to happen - at least not at that moment - for them to make the playoffs. A 34-point loss to one of your biggest rivals has a way of making everything else seem insignificant. Other players asked team officials or reporters about the various scenarios before concluding that the only thing that really mattered was beating the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. By the time the Ravens reported to the team facility Monday morning for meetings and film review, their path to the playoffs had been dissected and discussed.

Nearly one in four jobs in the Baltimore area requires skills in science, technology, engineering and math, a concentration that ranks among the top 10 in the country and brings wealth to the region, according a report released Monday. The Baltimore area ranks No. 8 on a list of metropolitan areas with the highest percentage of jobs requiring high-level knowledge in STEM, the acronym by which the fields are known. The nearly 282,000 STEM jobs in the region in 2011 made up 23.1 percent of all jobs, according to the Brookings Institution report, "The Hidden Stem Economy.

In the aftermath of No. 13 Johns Hopkins' devastating 8-4 loss to then-No. 7 Loyola last Saturday, senior defenseman Tucker Durkin said the week of practice leading up to Friday night's contest at Army would be the most important one of the season. Coach Dave Pietramala said he has been pleased with the players' effort and attention to detail Monday and Tuesday. But one thing the Blue Jays are not paying attention to is their tournament profile. “We don't really talk about it because we can't control that,” Pietramala said Wednesday morning.

Four years into a so-called recovery, and we're still below recession levels in every important respect except the stock market. A measly 88,000 jobs were created in March, and total employment remains some 3 million below its pre-recession level. Labor-force participation is at its lowest level since 1979. The recovery isn't just losing steam. It never had much steam to begin with. That's because so much of our debate over economic policy has been beside the point. On one side have been Keynesians -- followers of the great British economist John Maynard Keynes -- who want more government spending and lower interest rates in order to fuel demand.

The most famous, roof-rattling passage in Giuseppe Verdi's "Requiem" describes the "day of wrath" for the guilty as they face their eternal fate: "How great will be the terror when the Judge comes who will smash everything completely … Whatever is hidden will be revealed. Nothing shall remain unavenged. " To hear, let alone sing, those words in ordinary concert halls can be a pretty shattering experience. It is difficult to grasp what it must have been like for the Jewish prisoners at the Terezin concentration camp who performed the Verdi work 16 times in 1943-1944, having learned the music by heart - there was only one score for 150 singers.

The joint statement on revised accounting rules and related matters for financial institutions was issued last week by the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., Federal Reserve Board and the Office of Thrift Supervision. It contained several pointed messages to bankers and their regulators. Here are a few:*"It is possible, however, that some depository institutions may have become overly cautious in their lending practices. In some instances this caution has been attributed to concerns on the part of lenders that the regulators of depository institutions are applying excessively rigorous examination standards."

Orioles manager Buck Showalter seemed prepared for a question today regarding his feelings toward New York Jets coach Rex Ryan's belief that the Orioles should have played an extra game on the road to accommodate the Ravens' proposed home opener on Sept. 5. Because the Orioles already have a scheduled night game on Sept. 5, the Ravens aren't opening at home, which is the tradition for Super Bowl champions. The Ravens will instead will kick off the NFL season that night in Denver.

Washington College's remarkable turnaround last season absorbed a little bit of a blow when the team fell to Dickinson, 11-6, in the title game of the Centennial Conference tournament on May 6. It was the second-to-last game as the Shoremen lost to Goucher, 5-4, in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Despite the heartache, coach Jeff Shirk said he doesn't want No. 10 Washington College (10-1 overall and 4-1 in the league) to remember that result or use it as a rallying cry when the No. 2 Red Devils (11-0, 4-0)
