Suicide is an uncommon phenomenon. When you consider what people suffer because of medical illness, physical injury, the deprivations of old age, mental illness, personal failure and the betrayal by others, one wonders why more people don't choose to end their lives. Many are deterred from suicide by religious dictates, the social stigma associated with giving up in the face of hardship and the reluctance to abandon others by making this kind of exit. Even without these proscriptions, and under the most trying circumstances, life is often obstinately embraced until the very end. People just don't want to die. Many of us have thought about the possibility of taking our lives at some point, wondering what would happen if the steering wheel were turned just slightly to the left as an oncoming car approaches, or considering the consequences of jumping out of a window eight stories up. Most of us quickly reject the projected outcome of these actions.

At Monday's press conference at the Castle in Owings Mills, Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who was not in the best of spirits after Sunday's 22-17 loss to the 3-6 Seattle Seahawks, scoffed at a reporter who asked if the Ravens might have tripped over a psychological hurdle in their three road losses.

Amy Lynne Shelton has a closet full of toys at the Johns Hopkins University cognitive psychology lab: Wooden human figures with movable joints, Lego and model train buildings, toy cameras and wooden triangular blocks — some with eyes, some without. Each has its role to play in research shedding light on the possible relationship of social grace and sense of physical space, work that might eventually help people who suffer the social difficulties common in autism spectrum disorder. Shelton, an associate professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, led a team that has published results in the Journal of Experimental Psychology and is ready to submit for publication a fresh round of trials adding new variables — and new toys — to the experiment.

Jake Arrieta said it really hit him after a terrible outing against Triple-A Gwinnett on Aug. 7, in which he allowed five earned runs and lasted just 3 2/3 innings. Arrieta stewed on Norfolk's bus ride that night - "I had a long internal conversation with myself" - and then he picked up the phone the next morning and called sports psychologist Don Carman , who spent 10 years in the majors as a pitcher. They had worked together a few years ago, and Arrieta, the Orioles' 2012 Opening Day starter who had compiled a 6.13 ERA in 18 starts this year before his demotion, felt he needed Carman's perspective.

After watching another abysmal Raven loss at San Diego on Sunday, I tossed and turned all night because I am so upset with the Ravens poor performance at away games. I had to put my thoughts in writing in hopes that the Ravens organization can get their act together and do something. It is obvious that the problem is more mental than physical. It is time for the Ravens to employ a sports psychologist to counsel both the Ravens as a group, including the coaches, and at least 20 of the key players of the team individually.
