The chief of psychiatry at New York's famed Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center says Americans place a "terrible burden" on themselves and their families when they conclude that something in their own personality has brought on or worsened their cancer.The burden is unfair and unsupported by facts, said Dr. Jimmie C. Holland. "It's enough to get cancer without thinking you brought it on yourself."So far, she said, there is no conclusive evidence that our state of mind has any power to cause cancer or to change its outcome.

COLLEGE PARK - It might only be a year since Maryland took the same train ride to New York and bus ride to Brooklyn to play defending championship Kentucky at the Barclays Center. But a lot has changed for the Terps as they headed up again for Friday's game against No. 18 Connecticut. Sophomore center Shaquille Cleare is hoping that what is most different is Maryland's attitude. "I think last year going into Barclays, we weren't that prepared," Cleare said Thursday. "I just just think everyone was saying 'We're playing Kentucky,' so I didn't think a lot of guys brought their 'A' game.

So just where is this "heartland" President Bush has been touring during his summer vacation? He's heralded the values of the heartland from the banks of the Susquehanna about 150 miles north of Baltimore all the way to Albuquerque, N.M., which is a pretty big heart even for a barrel-chested country like the United States. "The strength of our country is in the heartland," the president told an Aug. 13 news conference at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Nobody would argue with the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., being in the heartland of the American mind - even if a team from Japan won this year.

When Maryland opened the season five months ago against defending national champion Kentucky at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., the Terps were full of the hype and hope that comes when many expect a team to find its way to the NCAA tournament. After a down-to-the-buzzer loss to the Wildcats that preceded a school record-tying 13-game winning streak, Mark Turgeon's team lost its way. There were times last month when even a National Invitation Tournament bid seemed in doubt.

There's a stunning purity in his sound, an inspired, jazzlike complexity in his approach. The music -- often melodious, sometimes pretty -- is always open and free. Raul Midon (that's mee-DON), a blind singer-songwriter-musician of black and Argentinian descent, has released one of the year's most brilliant albums: State of Mind, his major-label debut. Rippling with elements of classical, jazz, flamenco and '70s soul, the CD features little more than Midon's vocals and guitar throughout.

When David Wilson begins his slide talk at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, the audience is plunged into darkness. That works practically and poetically. After all, it's David Wilson, meaning you're in the dark even when the lights go up. Who is this man, really? Really, what's he up to? You have to ask. You have to ask as soon as you walk into the auditorium and you hear this odd music streaming from two little box speakers at the podium. It sounds like a cross between a violin and an oboe, maybe a viola and a bassoon, an instrument playing with such abundant sadness that it straddles the line between tragedy and comedy.

President Clinton had every right to boast Tuesday night that the state of the Union is good. The country is at peace. The economy has added almost six million new jobs since he became president, and has the lowest combined rate of unemployment and inflation in 25 years. Businesses are more productive, and the administration has succeeded in beginning to reduce the deficit.But that is not the true state of the Union in January 1995, and the president knows it. The true state of the Union is one of dissatisfaction with the status quo and a strong desire for change.

Funny how things work in the NFL. Even though they're 9-3 going into Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, the Ravens spent much of the week fielding questions about their state of mind. It got so bad, you half expected to see Dr. Phil working the locker room or Joe Flacco huddling with Jack Canfield, the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" life-improvement guru. It seemed as if everyone with a microphone or notepad wanted to know how the Ravens were dealing with that ugly 23-20 home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

PHILADELPHIA // After Michael Vick tossed four interceptions, was sacked twice, and finished with a 50.9 rating in the Philadelphia Eagles' 17-16 win against the Cleveland Browns, the quarterback has been poked and prodded by media and fans alike. One line of questioning has involved Vick's state of mind as the Eagles prepare for their home opener against the Ravens this Sunday. But offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg simply pointed to Vick's ability to engineer the game-winning, touchdown drive against the Browns as Exhibit No. 1 in his faith in Vick's confidence level.

When I moved here 23 years ago, some friends gave me a framed copy of the lyrics to Randy Newman's song, "Baltimore. " Sample lyrics: Hooker on the corner Waitin' for a train Drunk lyin' on the sidewalk Sleepin' in the rain Several years later, Lyle Lovett would release his own musical tribute, just as imaginatively titled "Baltimore. " Sample lyrics: And if they go to Baltimore Then I'll see you in heaven And as they breathe you'll breathe no more And you will surely die Given this sorry state of musical affairs, I braced for yet another back-of-the-songwriter's-hand when I heard there was a new Baltisong out there.

Start spreading the news: Sinatra's out at the Belmont Stakes. The New York Racing Association says Frank Sinatra's classic version of "New York, New York" is being replaced by "Empire State of Mind" as the music heard when the horses step onto the track for the $1 million Belmont on Saturday. The change is being made because Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" has become a "quintessential 21st century theme song for New York City," says NYRA marketing director Neema Ghazi. "New York, New York" replaced "Sidewalks of New York" in 1997.

"A joyful heart is the health of the body, but a depressed spirit dries up the bones." W ho knew that the Old Testament sages who wrote the Book of Proverbs were medical researchers in disguise? It seems that laughter really is the best medicine. n Roughly every day, another study is released trumpeting yet another of the health benefits of happiness: Watching funny movies or listening to enjoyable music is good for our hearts. Those who are chipper and upbeat are less likely to catch colds, even after they're exposed to a virus.

Let's take a dispassionate look at the tale of the tape for Saturday's playoff showdown between the Ravens and the AFC South champion Tennessee Titans. The Titans are the No. 1 seed in the AFC. They are listed as a three-point favorite. They are playing at home. And they beat the Ravens in a regular-season matchup at M&T Bank Stadium in October. Oh, and I almost forgot. They are coming off their second scheduled bye week of the season, which compares very favorably to the Ravens' none.

"What's in Her Mind: Women Figure" at School 33 (through Nov. 30) sounds like a show about content. But that's only partly, maybe even less than half, true. That's not to say that this is only a partly successful show. It succeeds in eliciting a positive response, but not perhaps in the way the three artists or curator Heather Tunis had in mind. The merit, in other words, is not always and never exclusively in the message.Nancy Ring's pastels are closest to "state of mind" works. Figures exist in a world of skewed perspectives and fragmented images, some of them demons, some objects of history or art pTC (the sphinx)
