A blood test that monitors changes in one specific gene may someday allow doctors to predict those likely to attempt suicide. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University identified a chemical alteration linked to stress reactions and plan more studies. Monitoring blood could some day help doctors more easily determine if intervention is necessary for service members returning home or the needs of those seeking psychiatric care. And blood tests could also be used to identify people who can't tolerate certain medications that lead to suicidal thoughts.

I know it's disturbingly early to get into this, but here is my out-of-nowhere prediction for the 2016 presidential race: Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul. Ms. Clinton is an easy pick. She was on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart on Tuesday night looking relaxed, engaged and quick-witted. Mr. Stewart spent most of the time trying to box her into admitting she is running for president. Ms. Clinton made no announcement, of course, but she gave not a single signal that would suggest she will not be a candidate.

With SummerSlam looming, WWE quietly has put together one of the stronger cards for a small pay-per-view event in recent memory with Sunday's Battleground. While it seems like many of these feuds and matches were built to set up SummerSlam, there's no reason why they couldn't shine Sunday and also build for August. There are four matches -  Usos vs. Harper and Rowan, Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins, and AJ vs. Paige -   that have the potential to be show-stealers.

The Money In the Bank pay-per-view has become a cornerstone event for the WWE every year. This year is no exception, though for different reasons than usual. With the vacated WWE World Heavyweight title, this feels like a reset of the main-event picture, for better or worse. For close to a year now, the title has been all about The Authority and the wrestlers going against The Authority. While certainly Orton, Kane and Triple H are involved at the moment, this can be used to get the belt away.

It has become apparent during the first three months of this season that the Orioles are determined not to conform to anyone's expectations, regardless of whether those expectations are good, bad or somewhere in between. Take the past nine days, for instance. The Orioles suffered a fairly disheartening loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on June 16 and then proceeded to win the next two games at Tropicana Field. They one-upped themselves in the disheartening department Friday night with what appeared to be a devastating loss to the New York Yankees before winning the next two games and defeat the seemingly-unbeatable Masahiro Tanaka in a one-sided series finale Sunday in the Bronx.

America - arguably the world's most diverse, innovative, and surprising nation - is becoming a lot more predictable. And boring. According to the most recent Pew Research Poll on political polarization, Americans are becoming more consistently liberal or conservative in their opinions, and ideological thinking is much more aligned with political party membership than before. This means that the overlap between the two parties that existed two decades ago - when there were conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans - is gone.

Chris Tillman has his own prediction to uphold when he starts for the Orioles this afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays. The right-hander was the club's Opening Day starter in March and was expected to develop into an ace after a 16-win, All-Star season in 2013. Instead, Tillman is 5-3 with a 4.91 ERA nearing the midway point of the season. His past five games have been even worse, having allowed a combined 21 earned runs in 20 1/3 innings (9.30 ERA). While Tillman has struggled with inconsistency, starters such as left-hander Wei-Yin Chen and right-hander Bud Norris have established themselves as the Orioles' most reliable pitchers.

Evinrude pro angler Scott Martin knows from experience what to expect from the Rayovac FLW Series Northern Division stop on the Potomac River in Marbury on June 19-21, and he has high expectations. "My favorite thing about the Potomac is that you have a lot of fishable water," said Martin, who won a Walmart FLW Tour event there in 2012. "The whole river is good. This time of the year the fish will be postspawn and it will fish really similar to how I won two years ago. Everything is a little behind schedule this year, though.

Dylan Bundy is confident he can be the dominant pitcher he was before an elbow injury interrupted a promising start to his professional career. Bundy, on the cusp of pitching in his first game since 2012, spoke Thursday at Ripken Stadium, home of short-season Single-A Aberdeen and his new home for at least the next few weeks. He said his arm feels great, and he's eager to make his first start Sunday on the road against Hudson Valley. "I feel like I can be the same as I used to be," Bundy said.
