Rio De Janeiro, Jun 28 (AP/UNB) — The public is getting its first look at two Jaguar cubs born in a wildlife reserve in Brazil.
Caretakers presented the healthy brother and sister cubs to media Thursday, saying that the public will be asked to name them.
The female cub was born completely black like her mother Nina. The male takes after the father, who is spotted.
Brazil is home to as much as 20% of the world's biological diversity, but in recent years encroachment by humans has had a dramatic impact on the country's natural fauna.
The Itaipu reserve was created 35 years ago to save species living in the area flooded by a large hydroelectric dam.
The jaguar breeding program started in 2007 in an attempt to save the species which Brazil classifies as "vulnerable."
New York, Jun 28 (AP/UNB) — You can dance to a new-ish Whitney Houston song this weekend.
Houston originally released a cover of Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" as a Japan-only bonus track on her 1990 album "I'm Your Baby Tonight," but the song has been given an upbeat, dance remix by Norwegian DJ-producer Kygo.
The new version of "Higher Love" was released digitally on Friday. Winwood's original version was released in 1986 and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Kygo, best known for his Top 10 hit "It Ain't Me" with Selena Gomez, will perform the new "Higher Love" at the PrideFestival Utopia on Sunday in New York City.
Houston died at the age of 48 in 2012.

Los Angeles, Jun 28 (AP/UNB) — There are more days ahead for "One Day at a Time."
The CBS Corp.-owned cable channel Pop TV says Thursday it's greenlighted a new season of the reboot canceled by Netflix.
In a statement, Pop TV President Brad Schwartz called the series both "culturally significant" and funny.
The original 1975-84 sitcom about a single white mom was reimagined with a Latino family at its center, a TV rarity.
Justina Machado stars as Penelope Alvarez, a Cuban American parent and military veteran, with Rita Moreno playing her mother, Lydia.
"One Day at a Time" was dropped by Netflix earlier this year after three seasons, prompting an outcry from fans. The streaming service said not enough people watched the show to justify renewing it.
Famed producer Norman Lear, who co-created the original series and is executive producer on the remake, said he was "heartbroken" when it was canceled.
"Today, I'm overwhelmed with joy to know the Alvarez family will live on," Lear said in a statement.
Pop TV says the new 13-episode season is planned for 2020.
