With the Orioles closing in on their first division title in 17 years, the resilient ballclub found out Friday its pennant run would not include slugging first baseman Chris Davis, who Major League Baseball suspended 25 games for a drug policy violation. “I can't speak for everybody, but I'm sure guys are disappointed to lose such a big part of our team like that at this time of year,” said Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day, who was Davis' teammate for three seasons with the Texas Rangers before both came to the Orioles.

An adverse reaction to a beauty product might sound like a story line from a bad sitcom, but it happens in real life too. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration wants to know about any products that give you rashes, burns your scalp or turns your skin an unexpected or unintended color. You should report a bad experience even if you weren't following the directions precisely. After all, if you make a mistake, chances are other people may do it too. Many beauty products or cosmetics recommend that consumers test the item in an inconspicuous area before applying it everywhere, which is definitely good advice.

Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata can likely expect to hear from the league office in the near future. Ngata kicked Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. Ngata retaliated to stick up for his teammate after Lauvao stuck Franks a bit late. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just pissed that he was doing that and just nudged him," Ngata said.

Australian mining magnate (apparently, a thing) Clive Palmer has unveiled the blueprints of his replica of the doomed ship that killed Leonardo DiCaprio. What could go wrong? It's set to sail the Atlantic by 2016. Will there be costumes, you ask? Sure! Passengers, dress in your finest! Go downstairs and dance with the poor people if you'd like! As you can probably tell, the ship has garnered mixed reaction on Twitter. Here are some of our favorites: "They are building the Titanic II. Hopefully it works out better than the Death Star II. " - @DepressedDarth "I was so pissed when I saw Titanic II trending, but then I realized it's a remake of the boat and not the movie and then I felt better.

Stories involving race require particular clarity of exposition and even-handedness because the issues inevitably trigger strong reactions from readers. Recent Sun articles - about the disparity between black and white students' performance in statewide achievement tests and about rallies to protest the treatment of six black teens who were charged with attempted murder over a schoolyard brawl in Jena, La. - generated a number of strong reactions. In my view, The Sun's reporting on these stories was well researched, well edited and timely.

It's the baby and those cute kids that are bringing the bags of mail to Benetton's headquarters and causing its 800 number to go bonkers.

Among the heartfelt tributes, the death of Robin Williams has also drawn what is now a predictable response - people saying stupid and insensitive things about depression and suicide while babbling too long in front of the camera or posting intemperate outbursts on Twitter. Fox News host Shepard Smith ended a marathon broadcast by calling Williams a "coward," after inviting the audience to imagine raising three children as Williams did. "And yet, something inside you is so horrible or you're such a coward or whatever the reason that you decide that you have to end it. Robin Williams, at 63, did that today," he said.

Two Maryland lawmakers said Friday they will ask a state Senate committee to explore the death of a 10-year-old disabled foster child who was in the care of a group home. Another state senator who advocates for people with disabilities said the boy's death at the Laurel-area group home pointed to a shortage of funding and resources to serve vulnerable people in Maryland. The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday that the boy died as the state was in the process of shutting down the home amid concern about staffing problems at the center.

When John Davis' kidney began failing in January, his girlfriend's mother decided to donate one of her kidneys to help save his life. That the two weren't actually a "match" - meaning Davis' body would never accept her kidney - didn't matter. In a groundbreaking program at Johns Hopkins Hospital that is as much about nationwide networking as it is medical innovation, kidney transplants are being arranged not through isolated pairings of patient and donor, but through longer and longer chains of individuals who don't even know each other.

Credited as the first hospital to introduce latex gloves, Johns Hopkins Hospital is now among the first to banish them. A famed Hopkins surgeon ushered in the latex era more than a century ago to protect his surgical nurse's hands from harsh detergents used to disinfect them. Now, in an announcement yesterday, the hospital said it has gone latex-free to prevent rare but severe allergic reactions - called anaphylaxis - that can include wheezing, rapid heartbeat and a sudden drop in blood pressure.

Each year, the staff of Baltimore ad agency Planit puts together a video Christmas card, something cute to send to clients and friends. This year, the creative directors got a little more creative than usual. They ushered employees into a back room decorated with glittering trees and giant presents and told them to sing carols for the camera. A few minutes into the song, BAM! — a guy wearing a scary mask and elf costumes popped out of the box. The reactions are priceless.
