HANOI, Vietnam - Nguyen Huong Giang loves to party but loathes hangovers, so she ends her whiskey benders by tossing back shots of rhino horn ground with water on a special ceramic plate. Her father gave her the 4-inch brown horn as a gift, claiming it cures everything from headaches to cancer. Vietnam has become so obsessed with the fingernail-like substance that it now sells for more than cocaine. "I don't know how much it costs," said Giang, 24, after showing off the horn in her high-rise apartment overlooking the capital, Hanoi.

GAUHATI, India - Veterinarians struggled Wednesday to save the life of a rare rhinoceros after poachers shot it and cut off its horn after it wandered out of a flooded national park in northeastern India. The attack on the one-horned rhino sparked outrage in the state of Assam, home to the world's largest concentration of the rare rhino. Footage of the bleeding rhino with its horn removed and a cut to its ear were broadcast on local television. "It is a sad day for Assam," said Somyadeep Dutta, an environmentalist.

"Songs That Got Us Through WW II," a CD compilation from Rhino, the specialists in '50s-'60s rock and zany offshoots, brings together 18 big band and pop tracks from the early '40s, all tied to World War II either through lyrics ("White Cliffs of Dover") or sentiment. The musical ground is certainly fertile, and one suspects Rhino is testing the waters here, trying to determine whether (1) older folks are joining the CD-buying crowd, or (2) younger folks are curious about pre-rock pop music.

The safari elephant made her way cautiously through dense tropical undergrowth and halted abruptly. Before us we saw an agitated ripple spread through the tall grass. Must be a very large animal! Chitwan National Park in Nepal is a World Heritage site and a popular place for viewing wildlife, especially one-horned Indian rhinoceroses. Perhaps the best view is from the back of an elephant. And I had come a long way for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. We left for the safari early in the morning.

Life goes on at the Philadelphia Zoo as staff members continue to ease their grief over the deaths of Kutenga the elephant and Bung the orangutan, by following the antics of the newest member of their extended family - a 150- pound bundle of joy now living the Pachyderm House. "Little Dhaulagiri gets bolder day by day, exploring his pen and playing games with his mother, Xavira. He likes best to run up and across her back when she tries to take a nap," said keeper Brian McCampbell.

Billy and Xaviera, the Philadelphia Zoo's resident Indian rhinos, are once again remodeling their Pachyderm House pen into a playpen. Their new daughter Penny, a 100-pound little bundle of joy who stands 2 1/ 2-feet tall on wobbly legs, was born Wednesday. She goes on public display today, according to zoo spokeswoman Ingrid Fowler. She's the fifth calf born to the couple in the past decade. Their first calf, the first rhinoceros ever born in Philadelphia, died 18 hours after her troubled birth in February 1984.

AS HOMICIDE DETECTIVES combed through Nakia Pyatt's apartment Jan. 16 looking for clues to identify the masked man who kicked down his door and shot him to death, Pyatt's dog, Rhino, lay bleeding under his owner's bed. Rhino did not whimper or whine. He just waited - for six hours - while the bullet wound in his groin oozed blood and police wandered through the Frankford apartment where he and Pyatt lived. Then, around 4 a.m. as Pyatt's sister, Ivory Poinsett, spoke with homicide investigators on the apartment building's front porch, Rhino came out from under the bed and joined them outside.

IVORY POINSETT knows there are bad people in this world and she knows there are bad people right here in Philadelphia. She knows this because one of them killed her brother last month and has yet to be caught. But after Poinsett shared her brother's story - and the story of his dog, Rhino, who survived being shot during her brother's murder - Poinsett knows there are a lot of good people in Philly too, some of whom stepped up to cover Rhino's $2,800 vet bill last week after reading his story.

One possible answer in this poster image for his concerts here at the Konzerthaus Dortmund, in what used to be the heart of Germany's coal and steel industry, is that he's using his artistic frequent-flyer miles to ensure the Philadelphia Orchestra's success here.

At times, political movements have terrified, and resisting them required courage. That's just one - and perhaps the most concrete - takeaway from Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium's wild, disturbing production of Eugene Ionesco's Rhinoceros . The Romanian-born Ionesco wrote his classic of absurdist theater in 1959; Europe was still recovering from the horrific mass movements called Nazism and fascism, and the post-WWII surge of the Communist...

TRENTON - Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep has teamed up with New Jersey lawmakers to rally behind the beleaguered elephant - and she hopes Gov. Christie takes notice. The Legislature on Monday sent Christie a bill that would ban the sale, purchase, or possession of ivory and rhinoceros horn. Streep, a winner of three Oscars who has starred in movies including Sophie's Choice and Out of Africa , ramped up the pressure on the Republican governor in a statement Tuesday to the Humane Society of the United States.

Russia probes adoptee's death DALLAS - Russian authorities have blamed "inhuman treatment" for the death of a 3-year-old boy adopted by an American family, but Texas officials say they are still investigating claims that the child was abused before his death. Russia's Investigative Committee said Monday that it had questions about the death of an adoptee authorities identified as Maxim Kuzmin. The committee is the country's top investigative agency. Texas Child Protective Services spokesman Patrick Crimmins confirmed that the agency had received a report Jan. 21 of the death of Max Shatto, 3, and allegations of physical abuse and neglect and that the Ector County Sheriff's Office in West Texas was investigating.

Israeli: Iran slows nuclear timetable JERUSALEM - Israel's defense minister said Iran has slowed the timetable for enriching enough uranium to build nuclear weapons, implying that Israel would have more time to decide whether to strike Iran's enrichment facilities. Ehud Barak's assertion that Iran has "essentially delayed their arrival at the red line by eight months," is in line with the time frame laid out by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in September, when he spoke at the U.N. General Assembly.
