Parched | Arizona Alumni Magazine | CALS in the News | Scoop.it
Water is one of the simplest molecules: two humble hydrogen atoms (the most common in the universe) bonded to one workaday oxygen atom (itself the third-most abundant of the elements). 
For such a modest molecule, it’s indispensable. We can go just days without drinking some, though we can go without food for weeks. It’s essential to our electricity, fabrics, plastics, and fuels. And that coffee you had this morning? It took nearly 40 gallons of water to bring you one cup. In fact, the American lifestyle uses more than 2,000 gallons of water a day per person.

Ask the Garden Sage: Beetle is damaging palo verde tree | Arizona Daily Star

Ask the Garden Sage: Beetle is damaging palo verde tree | Arizona Daily Star | CALS in the News | Scoop.it

A beetle in the Bostrichidae family called Amphicerus simplex causes the damage. It has no official common name so I am calling it the palo verde stem borer since that is what it does. These beetles are known for their boring activity, so much so that we commonly call the family of beetles to which it belongs the branch and twig borers and powderpost beetles.

Arizona Facing High Fire Danger a Year After Yarnell | UANews | CALS in the News | Scoop.it

It was one year ago that lightning struck and ignited the Yarnell Hill Fire, a devastating wildfire that resulted in the deaths of 19 firefighters who were members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.
