Don't count on those disposable masks to completely protect you against the swine flu percolating around the globe. Many people in Mexico City, as well as travelers to and from other cities, have been seen wearing mouth and nose protection of one type or another in recent days. Most were wearing face masks, which are loose-fitting and designed to help stop droplets from spreading from the person wearing the mask. They also protect the wearer's mouth and nose from splashes. They are not created to protect the wearer from breathing in very small particles.

Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company firefighter Gene Kirchner, who died after searching for victims in a house fire, was not wearing his face mask, gloves or helmet, according to a departmental report released a year after the fatal blaze. Kirchner, 25, a veteran firefighter, died days after a call to Hanover Road in Reisterstown on April 24, 2013. The Baltimore County Fire Department's report said Kirchner was found alone, lying face down in an upstairs bedroom between the door and the bed, without his face piece, hood or helmet.

"I guess I'll take my chances." I hear this a lot from patients when I fail to convince them about proper management and prevention of H1N1 flu. Why would someone in this day and age think like that? Why, when we have a rapid test to diagnose the flu; when we have two novel antiviral medications; when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are providing more timely information than one can read? Part of the problem is access to treatment. Most Americans don't have equal access to our arsenal against influenza, and much of that arsenal is imperfect.

Middle Tennessee State linebacker Roderic Blunt issued a public apology Tuesday for his role in an incident during Navy's 24-6 win Monday in the Armed Forces Bowl in which Blunt was seen reaching into Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' face mask after he was down and poking his eye. Blunt, who was not penalized after the third-quater play, was later ejected after his second of two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties. Reynolds missed three plays while Navy staffers installed an emergency visor on his face mask.

The first link in the chain of disastrous plays that resulted in the Ravens' wilting loss to the Browns was a run by Jamal Lewis on a huge third down with less than three minutes to play. Near the end of a 5-yard gain that left the Ravens 2 yards shy of what would have been a clinching first down, the officials missed an apparent face-mask penalty against strong safety Robert Griffith. Lewis was unable to fulfill a sideline order to stay in bounds, which could have run the clock down to the two-minute warning.

Imagine never worrying about getting injured by a baseball. Never feeling the sting for days after being hit with a ball.That's the ultimate goal for baseball manufacturers.The biggest trend in Little Leagues recently is use of a batting helmet equipped with a face mask. The plastic guard, which is designed like a football face mask, wraps around in front to protect the face, specifically the mouth area."It is not catching on as well as expected," said Paul Albrecht, vice president of sales for Marlow Sports, which provides athletic equipment for local teams.

To: Matt Hamilton From. S. Claus. Dear Matt, Thanks for your Christmas List. It's a powerful thing and well-organized. Mrs. Claus and I particularly appreciate your "Key" because at our age, we are fuzzy on the distinction between Game Boy Advanced and Game Boy Color. It was only last year we decoded "PC." Your third item of importance, "Bike (no front breaks)," does concern us. We assume you want your bike to have a rear braking system. Or perhaps brakes have become too old-fashioned?

OK, apparently I was wrong about that Derrick Mason-Joe Flacco dustup last week. Apparently it was a good thing for this Ravens team. Memo to the Ravens' wide receivers: Want a lot of balls thrown your way? Try this: Grab Flacco's face mask during a game and start barking at him about some perceived slight or another. Then sit back, baby, and watch the passes come your way the following week. Hey, look how well it worked for Mason in the Ravens' 17-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

COLLEGE PARK -- C.J. Brown has watched the video in which he is blasted from behind by a Florida State player before being rammed in the chest by another defender, twisting the Maryland quarterback's body so that his face mask bounces on the turf. “Pretty gruesome hit,” Brown said Tuesday, shortly after coach Randy Edsall announced that he will be back as the starter for Maryland (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) in its game at Wake Forest (3-3, 1-2 ACC) on Saturday. “One of the trainers called me 'scrambled eggs' - 'Hey Scrambled, you all right?

For nine years, Bobby Nyk didn't miss a single Ravens game, home or away. That home streak is impressive enough, but it was all those away games that earned him the nickname "The Ravens Road Warrior. " It's a moniker worn proudly by the 62-year-old Baltimore native, who spent most of those nine years working for the team as a DJ outside the stadium on game days. "I don't think anyone's been to more away games than me, except for maybe Nestor Aparicio," the retired Howard County teacher says, referring to the Baltimore radio sports personality and rabid Ravens fan. "Him, and of course the players.

Let's agree that whatever took place on the sideline between Derrick Mason and Joe Flacco on Sunday was not exactly Tyson vs. Holyfield at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Nobody swung at anybody. Nobody head-butted anybody. Nobody bit off a chunk of anyone's ear. But let's be clear about this, too: Mason can't be going off on his quarterback the way he did, either. OK, we don't have all the details of what transpired between the two in the second half of the Ravens' 37-13 win over the Carolina Panthers.

There haven't been any punches thrown at this year's Ravens training camp, but there has been plenty of sparring. After Domonique Foxworth made a diving interception Thursday, the former Western Tech and Maryland standout slapped hands with fellow cornerback Frank Walker a couple of times before leaping for an animated chest bump. All this occurred a few feet from the offense. One play later, wide receiver Justin Harper caught a deep pass down the sideline and made a mad dash to the goal post, where he tossed up the football as if he were LeBron James shooting a jumper.

Christy Collins' vision for the future of baseball can be glimpsed through the polycarbonate bars of a face mask. The Ohio researcher examined data from dozens of high school teams and concluded that the best way to reduce serious injuries on the diamond would be to require that all infielders, from pitchers to shortstops, wear helmets and face protection. Her suggestion, published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, would mean a huge change in the game's gear. Few think the idea will come to pass soon - if ever - but it has become part of a larger discussion about safety in America's pastime, where a long-held culture of toughness is slowly giving way to more cautious attitudes.
