ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.

- A’s fans are used to saying goodbye to their favorites
By Steve Rubenstein - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
A’s fans are used to saying goodbye to their favorites A’s fans know better than anyone else what “Moneyball” means, and it means saying goodbye, again and again and again. More than other teams, Oakland is known for shoving players onto the trading block once their salaries are running high or their shelf lives are running low. “I liked Doolittle and Madson,” said Ruben Diaz of Antioch, who was checking out player jerseys in the souvenir store. The jersey market — which is at least as hard to figure out as the mysterious metrics of Moneyball — is the only time that a smelly used one ($400) sells for more than a factory-fresh new one ($225). The revolving-door school of baseball operations takes its toll on other metrics, such as attendance, which, like on-base percentage, can be measured with precision. Countless sections of green grandstand had not a living soul seated therein. High above the outfield were emblazoned the names and retired numbers of the pre-Moneyball crowd — Reggie Jackson, Rickey Henderson, Dennis Eckersley, Rollie Fingers and Catfish Hunter — none of whom was in the lineup Monday, more the woe to the paying customers. [...] fans took to their blog site, Athletics Nation, to scratch their collective heads about the most recent of the recent swaps. Like A’s fans scouring their Cracker Jack boxes in search of the elusive prize, the diehards at the stadium were trying to figure out how they made out in the latest trade, and how to pronounce the name of one Sheldon Neuse, a minor-league infielder whom the A’s acquired in the swap. [...] it’s “noose,” like the thing that some A’s fans think has been placed around their necks by team management. Morosco said, the A’s have been a minor-league system for major-league baseball development for so long that nothing is a surprise.
