A little more frustration was added to safety Tony Dye's season Wednesday: a neck roll for his shoulder pads. Dye, a senior, sat out the last two games because of neck pain caused by a nerve problem, something that has bothered him since training camp. It has robbed the Bruins of their leading tackler from a year ago. The neck roll was designed to protect the area. And … "I found out today it does not help," Dye said. "It was irritating. I couldn't turn my head left or right.

Tony Dye sat outside the UCLA football team's locker room, his head resting against a wall while ice packs soothed his muscles. His body was winding down after a practice, but his mind was churning full speed. "This is going to be different this week, I promise you," said Dye, the Bruins' starting free safety and a team captain. "There will be big hits. There will be great tackles. " Dye never raised his voice but spoke with the intensity of a big-tent preacher. With UCLA preparing to face a downtrodden Oregon State team Saturday in Corvallis, it was clear he'd had enough of the way the Bruins — himself included — play defense.

UCLA's Tony Dye beams when talking about his new assignment. The move from strong safety to free safety has him in a happy place. "I love it," Dye said. "I have the whole offense in front of me and I can play the ball. I have been locked up with tight ends my whole life. " Dye's importance to defense goes beyond his position. "He was kind of born to lead," Coach Rick Neuheisel said. "Guys respect him, not only for who he is, but what he brings to the table as a person.

Whether it's a luxury automobile, a couture gown or a special vintage of wine, even those who aren't collectors and connoisseurs recognize that perceived rarity and quality drive up demand. And price. But would you be willing to pay a premium price — say five times as much — for yarn? What if it was a luxurious, lustrous fiber, hand-sheared, -washed, -dyed and -spun from an award-winning sheep — all by the same woman — less than 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles? You might not, but fiber enthusiasts will.

Maraschino cherries, Cheetos, Gatorade and Froot Loops. The rainbow of colors in candies and decorated birthday cakes. The colors of these foods are not from nature — and depending whom you talk to, they are harmless fun or making kids bounce off walls. Late last month, an advisory panel for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration concluded there was enough evidence to say that foods containing artificial food dyes may trigger hyperactivity in a small percentage of children with behavioral problems such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Although there is no clear indication that artificial food dyes cause hyperactivity or other behavioral problems in children, enough uncertainty exists to justify more research, an advisory panel told the Food and Drug Administration on Thursday. The panel of medical and environmental experts narrowly voted against recommending that more information about dyes be added to food labels. But panelists acknowledged the chemicals can cause problems for some children, including those who already have hyperactivity disorders.

After two days of deliberation, an advisory panel has told the Food and Drug Administration that there’s no clear link between artificial food coloring and hyperactivity in children. But, according to Thursday's story out of the Tribune Washington Bureau, the panel concluded that further studies are needed to truly settle the question -- and that the dyes may be a problem for children who are more susceptible than others. The question of food dyes and childhood behavioral problems is an old one, according to this 2008 story by Melinda Fulmer for the Health section: “Suspicion about the effect of food dyes on behavior swelled in the mid-1970s after San Francisco allergist Dr. Ben Feingold published his book "Why Your Child Is Hyperactive," detailing his research on the behavioral benefits of eliminating food dyes and additives -- guidelines that became known as the Feingold diet.

The beauty industry is no stranger to organic ingredients, and a multitude of hair- and skin-care companies claim to be eco-friendly, all-natural or certified organic. More recently, hair color companies have joined the eco-revolution, advertising nontoxic, ammonia-free, all-natural or organic formulas. But can hair color truly be green and effective? The debate over the dangers of hair color has percolated in the United States for more than 50 years, with studies both supporting and refuting the notion that hair dyes cause cancer.

Washing that gray right out of your hair (to borrow from the famous song) is no longer a mandatory part of getting older. So asserts a growing cadre of American women who are embracing their naturally silver hair tones. Letting tresses go gray (or white or salt-and-pepper) may not be the Hollywood way, but it's become a hot topic for real women all over the country. Seeds of a colossal shift in thinking — away from the arcane preconception that going gray means "letting yourself go" — have already taken root.
