Wake up! 1 in 5 fatal car crashes involve drowsy drivers
Property Casualty 360
Caterina Pontoriero fell asleep behind the wheel nearly three years ago. Pontoriero didn't wake up until she banged her face against the steering wheel. She had been driving at 60 mph when her car slammed into the one in front of hers as it was stopped in bumper-to-bumper rush hour traffic. Thankfully, she only sustained a slightly crooked nose and a few scars, and the person she hit was not hurt.

A bear in the big city
Governing
Most days, cougar No. AF126 stays close to her 3-month-old kitten in her den in the Flatiron Mountains near Boulder, Colorado. But when dusk falls, she eases silently down foothill trails and out onto Colorado’s High Plains. There, in the dark of the night, she’ll hunt mule deer, raccoons, skunks and other prey to sustain herself and her offspring. AF126’s den doesn’t lie in remote mountains or untrammeled forest wilderness. Rather, her site commands a sweeping view eastward across a landscape dotted with buildings, highways and power plants.
