FILE- In this Jan. 11, 2018 file photo, traffic makes it's way across 42nd Street in New York City. Motorists would have to shell out $11.52 to drive into the busiest parts of Manhattan under a new proposal commissioned by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ease traffic congestion and raise vital funds for mass transit. Trucks would pay even more — $25.34 — while taxi cabs, Uber rides and for-hire vehicles would be charged between $2 and $5 per ride. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File)

Workers sweep water from a floor of the arrivals area at John F. Kennedy International Airport's terminal 4, in New York on January 7, 2018. International flights were suspended into a flooded terminal at New York's flagship airport on Sunday, flung into chaos after a water main broke during brutally cold temperatures following a deadly winter storm. Gushing water compounded meltdown at John F. Kennedy International Airport, where furious passengers have camped out for days as a result of equipment damaged by the storm and a backlog of flights. / AFP PHOTO / Jewel SAMAD (Photo credit should read JEWEL SAMAD/AFP/Getty Images)

Seized ivory probed for clues that could help save elephants

 

In this Jan. 8, 2018 photo, Wendy Hapgood, left, and John Steward, directors of the Wild Tomorrow Fund, measure an elephant tusk at a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation warehouse in Albany, N.Y. The tusk was part of a $4.5 million seizure of illegal ivory from a New York City antiques shop. To help support anti-poaching efforts, scientists will use carbon dating to determine when the elephant was killed and DNA analysis to pinpoint where it came from in Africa. (AP Photo/Mary Esch)
