After watching parts of both the Republican and Democratic conventions, I have one thing to say to the candidates and members of both parties: You can't build yourself up by tearing someone else down. To me, respect for self and others is the best way to keep our nation growing. Faith F. Arrington, Dayton

The space sure looked like a science lab, with beakers full of brightly-hued potions and a dry-erase board covered in graphs and mathematical scrawl. But at the heart of the operation sits a hunk of metal with a hand crank on the side. "It's a pasta maker," said Barry Margulies, a biology professor who presides over the Towson University lab. No joke. When it occurred to Margulies' graduate researcher that Williams Sonoma might have the answer to their prayers, it was a major breakthrough for the lab's efforts to treat one of America's most prevalent sexually transmitted diseases.

When the Olympic Games began almost 30 centuries ago in ancient Greece, rulers of city-states proclaimed an "Olympic truce," a ban on warfare to allow athletes, poets and spectators to attend without getting speared. It would be nice to think that this year's Olympics might turn into the occasion for a domestic political truce, a summer vacation from the ferocious character attacks each side has been leveling at the other's candidate. But it's not going to happen. Why? Because negative advertising works.

X-rays taken on shortstop J.J. Hardy's left side following the Orioles' 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday afternoon were negative. Hardy, who was drilled in the side by a 91-mph fastball from James Shields in a five-run fifth inning, said he had a sizable bruise. He entered the Orioles' clubhouse with his torso wrapped in ice. "They're fine," he said. "They hurt but they're fine. They hurt a lot. " Hardy has started in 96 of the Orioles' 99 games this season and is playing through a sore throwing shoulder.

The Orioles, who have been dealing with plenty of bad injury news recently, may have gotten some good news Saturday night. Reliever Matt Lindstrom, who had to leave Friday's game in the eighth inning after getting hit on the inside of his left knee by a liner, had an X-ray on Saturday. And, according to Orioles manager Buck Showalter, it came back negative. Although Lindstrom's knee is still swollen and tender, the belief is that it is just a nasty bruise, and the hope is he can avoid a disabled list stint.

The Orioles are desperate for good news these days, and they got some Monday morning. MRIs taken on both of Adam Jones' wrists showed only contusions, and the Orioles center fielder is expected to play Tuesday in Boston, the team confirmed. Jones tweeted around 10:30 a.m. that he is “all good” and headed to “Beantown” for Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox. Jones said Sunday that he's been bothered by the right wrist for several weeks. He couldn't pinpoint exactly when he first felt discomfort, but he felt pain after a slide into first base in the third inning Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Orioles received some good news regarding outfielder Nick Markakis' injured right wrist, but how long the club might be without their Gold Glove right fielder, if at all, is unclear. X-rays taken of Markakis' wrist were negative and Markakis is scheduled to see a hand specialist in Florida during Thursday's off day in Tampa Bay, Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said Wednesday afternoon. That would indicate that Markakis will miss tonight's series finale in Toronto, but this is Markakis, who has missed just 10 total games over the past five seasons.

If you're used to watching an Orioles game in the quiet of a family room, then watching one at Camden Yards can be unsettling - fellow fans yelling in your ears, maybe dropping a profanity here and there. If you rarely walk on city sidewalks full of people, it can be a strange experience, especially if there are panhandlers or mentally ill wanderers in your path. If you're almost always with people who look like you, then being in a diverse crowd can be weird, even frightening. It was always thus, but never more so than in the last few decades in the United States.

Despite a barrage of public comments, many negative, Maryland State Board of Education members said Tuesday that they will push forward with plans to reduce the use of long-term suspensions and expulsions in student discipline. "Everybody gets that kids need to be in school," said board President James H. DeGraffenreidt Jr. "The question is how do we do that?" The board received more than 200 written comments after asking for public input when it released a report in late February, detailing proposed changes that would reduce suspensions for nonviolent offenses.
