MARTINO: Hell-bent for hellbenders

They go by names like mud puppy and snot otter. My first encounter took place back in my school days while wade-fishing the Eel River. They used to be common throughout Indiana, but not anymore. In fact, the only place you are likely to encounter one is in the Blue River, located in extreme south-central Indiana hill country.

#2 Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Purdue Boilermakers Game Thread

Iowa Hawkeyes football, Purdue Boilermakers football, Iowa, Purdue Boilermakers men's basketball, David Bell, Phil Parker, Iowa City, Kinnick Stadium, Purdue University. The second-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes look to extend their 12-game winning streak to 13 - a streak that would be third longest in school history after topping the historic run in 2015. But to do so, they’ll need to come off the high of beating their fifth top-5 opponent in six games inside Kinnick Stadium and avoid a letdown against the Purdue Boilermakers.

Dr. Charles Figley Of Tulane University: “Love ”

I think of the blessings of that required more Joie De Vivre. Love — finding and being in love during this period provided the grounding and connection I needed after 4 years in the Marine Corps. Direction in my life — career, family, settling down — my friends, family, and work relationships required my attention and good judgement. Hope is also an important thing to experience — most of the time, if not all the time. Hope is also important for elevating spirits. Calm emerged in the pre-university years but it was crystalized in the military: finding and maintaining calm. Finally, experiencing challenge is an important necessity; my challenges motivate me to improve, but mostly the challenges I determine, not others.

In plant stress response, one protein lures, binds its own killer (copy)

WEST LAFAYETTE — Like the plot of a mystery novel, research has found a twist in the way plants cannibalize their own cells to survive under stress. In response to drought, cold, lack of sunlight and other stress, cellular proteins interact in different ways to help a plant survive. A primary protective act is the destruction and recycling of some of the plant’s own cellular materials into what is needed for others.
