Elephant herpes virus not cause of Chai’s death

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Zoo says the elephant herpes virus – or EEHV – was not the cause of death of an elephant at the zoo. Zoo spokeswoman Tara Henson told the Oklahoman that the zoo’s veterinarians received test results Wednesday that rules out EEHV as the cause of death of the 37-year-old Asian elephant named Chai. Henson says other test results that could identify the cause are still pending.

Oprah chai tea not so hot

I guess I prefer Hot Oprah to Iced Oprah. Hot Oprah is comforting, rich and easy to stomach. Iced Oprah shuts you out. It seems cold and indifferent, content to coast on its promise. That said, the official name for the new Oprah Winfrey drink at Starbucks and its Teavana stores is Teavana Oprah Chai Tea Latte. It comes hot and it comes cold, and the reason for the long name, one must assume, is because Starbucks bought the Teavana teahouse chain in 2012 and wants it to do for tea what Starbucks did for coffee; serendipitously, Oprah-branded chai latte could be the ideal way to have Oprah do for Teavana and chai what she did for Elie Wiesel and Dr. Phil.
