The Ravens can take heart in knowing that they're not alone in questioning at least one call that contributed to their 15-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. Mike Pereira , the NFL's Vice President of Officiating between 2004 and 2009, said officials were wrong in flagging linebacker Terrell Suggs for roughing the passer. "While referees are instructed to err on the side of safety when it comes to protecting the quarterback, I feel the call was incorrect," said Pereira, who now works for Fox. He added, "Suggs made a form tackle on [Bengals quarterback Carson ]

The first several weeks of Melanie C. Pereira's tenure as director of the Howard County Detention Center have come and gone without much fanfare.Everything has been nice and quiet since the first week of October, when she replaced James N. "Buck" Rollins at the 361-bed jail in Jessup, and that's just the way Pereira likes it."I was left a good institution to work with," Pereira says. "It was well-run and well-maintained. To look at things after only a month on the job and come up with a list of things that need to be changed just isn't something that I'm going to do."

The Brazilian warship has traveled around the globe the past quarter century, but it was pelted by pirates for the first time Sunday. The naval ship — a sort of floating classroom for Brazilian midshipmen — is spending a week in Baltimore as part of a tour that began in early June. It is docked near Harborplace, where costumed privateers and wenches on the city's pirate cruise sail by with taunts every hour or so. Throughout the week, the 420 Brazilian sailors are extending their gangplanks to visitors for free tours of the ship, The Brazil.

Mike Pereira, NFL senior vice president of officiating, agreed with all the controversial calls made by the officials during the Ravens' 27-24 Monday night loss to New England. In addressing Samari Rolle's accusation that head linesman Phil McKinnely repeatedly called the cornerback "boy," Pereira said McKinnely's "interpretation" of the situation was different from Rolle's. He also found no fault in how McKinnely handled the situation. "Phil, in my mind, acted as he should," Pereira said on the NFL Network.

PARIS -- With her pink-and-orange dyed hair and pierced lower lip, Manuella Pereira considers herself a rebel standing up for young people across France. But the 17-year-old from a well-to-do suburb learned a harsh lesson about solidarity when she went to Paris last week to join a student march at the Invalides military monument. "A friend of mine got robbed and I got tear-gassed," said Pereira, a student at Albert Schweitzer High School in Le Raincy. In scenes shown on television, swarms of hooded, masked youths infiltrated the march Thursday in an upscale tourist district in the heart of Paris, beating and stomping marchers, stealing their cell phones and money, and setting cars on fire.

Howard County proposed yesterday to strip some of its jail cells of fixtures that could aide suicide attempts and plans more frequent interviews with Spanish-speaking and isolated inmates after two men hanged themselves at its detention center this year. The bulk of the 13-page internal review focused on building a "Suicide Prevention Plan" out of existing practices. It also concluded, however, that the proposed changes would not have prevented the deaths of Dean Cumbie, 33, of Cooksville and Wilfredo Hernandez, 31, of Columbia, neither of whom was on suicide watch.

Howard County police have ruled that two of the three deaths at the Howard County Detention Center this year were suicides, finding that one prisoner was able to slip a shaving razor past guards and the other likely tried to hang himself a day earlier in the jail, according to police records released this week. The first incident took place April 1, when 33-year-old Dean Cumbie, wanted in Georgia on identity theft and drunken-driving charges, hanged himself with a bed sheet attached to a vent.
