Cattle thieves on Argentina's legendary Pampas plains are getting rounded up by police-coordinated genetic testing. Argentina is famous for its free-range beef from grass-fed cattle, but experts say relaxed controls make it too easy for rustlers. The government is expanding a database of genetic material samples from 10,000 cattle that have helped police solve 270 cases of cattle rustling since it was established in the Buenos Aires province seven years ago. The state-run Genetic Veterinary...

By Juan Bustamante BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - A government cleanup scheme has inspired new hope for the 5 million people living in Argentina's Matanza-Riachuelo river basin, where raw sewage, industrial waste and empty promises have created a toxic cesspool. The plan, expected to be launched next week, responds to a Supreme Court decision demanding government action, 13 years after a former president vowed to make the Riachuelo river that runs through Buenos Aires safe for...

By Nicolas Misculin BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - Viewed from above, the gentle Salado river that runs through Argentina's fertile Pampa prairies looks harmless enough. But in the last 20 years, its inundations have largely kept 19.8 million acres of some of the world's richest farmland from being used -- or nearly one-third of the area Argentine farmers seeded with grains and oilseeds last season.

Bush arrived late on Thursday for the two-day Summit of the Americas but sentiment against him runs high in Argentina due to opposition to the Iraq war and to U.S.-backed, free-market policies that many...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
