It may seem premature to plan next year’s diversion, but that's exactly what you must do if you plan to stay at Yosemite National Park ’s coveted High Sierra Camps. The good news is that the deadline for entering the lottery that will determine whether you get your dates has been extended to Nov. 20. It was originally Monday, Nov. 1. Five camps occupy idyllic sites in the backcountry to the north and south of Tioga Pass Road. They consist of dormitory accommodations in basic tent cabins, a hot shower at most locations and family-style dinners and breakfasts.

Thank you for your article on multiple sclerosis (Jan. 6), especially appreciated because this was the second article in recent days on this subject. More exposure of what is known is important. Having a son who has been subjected to the physical damage caused by MS, I have often wondered when MS will receive the appropriate attention in research and other accommodations. As the article stated, they do not even know the cause, even though there has been some research.

When teenagers engage in dangerous behavior, adults usually chalk it up to some innate fondness for risk - the thrill of an unsafe situation. But in fact, adolescents may be more risk-averse than adults, a new study has found.  Their willingness to engage in risky behavior may have less to do with thrill-seeking per se than with a higher tolerance for uncertain consequences, researchers reported Monday. “Teenagers enter unsafe situations not because they are drawn to dangerous or risky situations, but rather because they aren't informed enough about the odds of the consequences of their actions,” said Agnieszka Tymula, a postdoctoral researcher at New York University and coauthor of a report detailing the study, in a statement.
