  • Scientists study high altitude sickness in cattle

    VALLES CALDERA NATIONAL PRESERVE, N.M. (AP) — The lush grass in northern New Mexico provides a strong lure for drought-stricken ranchers looking for a way to feed their animals. But grazing in the mountains brings a risk of bovine high altitude disease, a potentially fatal illness that costs the beef industry some $60 million a year.

    As many as 2 million cattle graze on public and private land at high altitudes every summer, but with thousands developing the disease each year, ranchers take a chance when they send their animals into the hills.

  • Fashion Maven: Choose the color that’s right for you

    I absolutely love colors, but they can be a bit tricky when it comes to actually wearing them. Some of you may never wear a very bright color, choosing instead to stick to a colorless outfit. This may be because you don’t know how to wear a bright color, or maybe you’re a bit color-shy.
    Take it from me, being color savvy is much more enjoyable than being color-shy. I know, you’re probably thinking, “well if it’s so great, then how do you do it?” Don’t worry. Here are some tips.
    Start out with small bits of color. If you have a dull-colored outfit, try adding a colorful necklace, bag, shoes, ring, bracelet, scarf, earrings, headband, belt, or other accessory.
