KFYI 550 AM used to be the premier radio station for conservative talk show hosts. They still are five days a week with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. for Rush and 1 – 4 p.m. for Sean. Currently, they are both heard on Sundays as well.
TEMPE – Are your bones getting stronger or weaker? Right now, it’s hard to know. But a new test for detecting bone loss, being developed by Arizona State University and Mayo Clinic researchers, offers the possibility of near real-time monitoring of bone diseases. The technique, which measures changes in calcium isotope ratios, has passed an important hurdle by being tested on urine samples from NASA space shuttle astronauts.
Wild animals arrive needing our help nearly every day. We nurse the sick back to health, heal the broken, and raise the orphans. For those with no hope, we end their suffering. We also care for many wild animals that have suffered cruelty at the hands of people. Some have been taken out of the wild while others have been purchased from breeders. Many are declawed and have their canine teeth pulled in an effort to make them better pets. Far too many are kept in small, indoor cages like a novelty to show off. Without you, and your financial support, there will be no more untold stories. Without you, we cannot be here for wildlife in need. We thank you for your continued support.
PHOENIX – Are you fascinated by reptiles? Do you have a yard big enough for a dog, but no time to take one for daily walks? Is someone in your family allergic to pets with fur or feathers? If so, consider adopting a desert tortoise through the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The department’s Tortoise Adoption Program has over 40 tortoises to adopt out to homes in the Phoenix, Yuma and Prescott areas prior to the animals going into hibernation this fall.
