Do you work yourself into a dither about money, relationships or your job? Do situations such as speaking in public or flying turn you into a basket case? Your friends may tell you it's all in your head, and perhaps you agree. But a growing number of scientists say the problem may be you're breathing too fast. Hyperventilation, or "overbreathing," is now a prime suspect in a number of psychological disorders, particularly those involving anxiety and irrational fears.

It's debatable whether the best love stories are also the "weirdest," as Emile Hirsch's character declares in "Twice Born. " But they do require chemistry, the missing piece in his pairing with Penélope Cruz. Set in Sarajevo before, during and many years after the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, the drama is undone by hyperventilating poetics and a busy time-hopping structure. The usually subtle Hirsch flounders as American photographer Diego, who falls hard for older Italian graduate student Gemma (Cruz)

I strongly warn people with arachnophobia not to see the movie "Arachnophobia." I made a mistake by taking my wife, who has a fear of insects, to the movie. Someone who had seen the flick told her it would be good therapy for her to face her fear. But my wife was so terrified she was "paralyzed" in her seat until it was over. Afterward she complained that her face, lips, tongue, hands and feet were numb and she felt horrible. I called a doctor whose nurse said she was suffering from a classic case of hyperventilation, and the doctor instructed me to make her breathe into a paper bag for about 20 minutes.

From Arlington, Texas -- Was Derek Holland hypnotized? Did someone convince him that this 68-degree night was in April or May, not October? Who knows? All that matters to Ron Washington and the Texas Rangers' fans is that the 25-year-old left-hander pitched a masterpiece when one was badly needed. Holland's 8 1/3 scoreless innings Sunday at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington carried Texas to a 4-0 victory that evened the World Series at two games apiece. There was almost no margin for error against the St. Louis Cardinals, who had scored 16 runs Saturday and averaged 5.8 runs during their playoff run. And the Rangers had to count on Holland, who has shown that he can be either very good (four 2011 shutouts)

A shootout Sunday between armored car guards and gunmen, one armed with an AK-47 assault rifle, left one bystander dead and at least three people wounded after a botched robbery outside a Van Nuys Costco store teeming with shoppers, authorities said. Panic-stricken customers, many with children, dived for cover in the pandemonium. Bullets shattered car windows 100 yards away.

Don King pulled out all the stops, and then some, at a news conference to promote the upcoming fight between Azumah Nelson and Pernell Whitaker. King: "The true reality is we are African Americans. But this young kid Whitaker has only the seed of the heritage. He's running up against a real animal out of the bush--a terrible warrior from Ghana. Azumah's running through the jungle right now with a loin cloth. He's wrestling tigers.

The self-proclaimed world's only living bazooka player hoisted the world's only active bazooka into position and blew. What came out was something that sounded a little like "Old Folks at Home." It wasn't. " 'Let the Rest of the World Go By,' " Ormly Gumfudgin said as he finished playing. "One of my favorites." "Is that what that was?" "Sure. What'd you think it was?" "I thought it was 'Old Folks at Home.' You know, Way down upon the Swanee River . . . " Ormly frowned. "Hell no," he said.

Even as hot as they've been, the Mighty Ducks have always known they could be one wrenched knee or one twisted ankle from disaster. Guy Hebert, Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya are that important. The Ducks' worst fears were being played out in front of their eyes Sunday after Hebert left the game trembling, panicky and exhausted after hyperventilating and then Selanne skated off, unable to play because of a strained muscle in his left side.

With nature's most recent onslaught making many people cringe at each weather forecast, the annual summer battle to beat the heat has switched into high gear. A recent study at the University of Chicago Medical Center shows some of the reasons why that battle must be taken seriously. The researchers analyzed records of patients admitted to Chicago hospitals during the devastating 1995 heat wave that killed more than 600 people in nine days.

A railroad tanker car containing hydrochloric acid sprang a leak today and sent toxic fumes into the air, forcing the evacuation of about 2,000 people and sending at least 50 to area hospitals. The tanker car was being used to store the 42% acid solution at a truck and car wash about two miles east of downtown Gary.
