Classroom Critters.

first_imgBack-to-school signs are everywhere: the return of school buses,the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and the misery of headlice.”More than 12 million people, mostly children, parentsand school personnel, get head lice each year,” said PaulGuillebeau, Integrated Pest Management coordinator for the Universityof Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.”Head lice are common among all classes of people, Guillebeausaid. “They know no socioeconomic or ethnic boundaries.”As part of his efforts to reduce unnecessary use of pesticides,Guillebeau and colleague Gretchen Van De Mark have released updatedinformation on how to treat head lice.The two publications, “A Parent’s Guide to the ‘NittyGritty’ About Head Lice” and “A School’s Guide to the’Nitty Gritty’ About Head Lice,” are being distributed toGeorgia school systems. They’re available on the web at”Many parents panic when they discover their child hashead lice and misuse pesticides or resort to unapproved treatmentslike kerosene,” Guillebeau said.”Head lice are not an emergency,” he said. “Theydon’t pose any health risks. But misusing pesticides or sprayingpesticides unnecessarily does put your child and your family atrisk.”Head lice are simply inconveniences to be dealt with compassionatelyand calmly, Guillebeau said.Knowing a little head lice biology is the key to convincingparents not to overreact and spray pesticides unneccessarily.Head lice can’t live off a human host for more than 24 hours.They can’t reproduce in carpets, bedding or other home furnishings.And they can’t live on pets or stuffed toys.”Pesticidesprays do little or nothing to control lice,” Guillebeausaid, “but they do expose your family to pesticides unnecessarily.Never treat your home, car, furniture, beds, pillows or clothingwith pesticides in an attempt to control head lice.”To kill head lice on bedding and clothes, wash and dry themas you would ordinarily. To kill head lice on brushes, combs andhair accessories, wash them with hot, soapy water. For peace ofmind, place stuffed animals that can’t be washed in a sealed plasticbag for three to four days.Guillebeau says he cringes when he hears stories of schoolpersonnel spraying pesticides in classrooms and on buses to controlhead lice.”If your child’s school does this, ask them to stop immediately,”Guillebeau said. “These applications don’t help control headlice populations. They just expose the children and staff to needlesspesticide risks.”The University of Georgia, National Pest Control Association,National Pediculosis Association and the Georgia Pest ControlAssociation all support this recommendation for schools.Head lice are transmitted by direct head-to-head contact withan infested person or by sharing hats, scarves, headphones, combsand other hair accessories. They can’t hop, jump or fly. But theycan crawl fast.”Teachers and other school personnel should discouragechildren from sharing these items,” Guillebeau said. “Andeach child’s hat and coat should be stored separately.”Guillebeau said if school bus drivers are concerned over headlice, they can wipe the bus seats with a damp cloth. Teachersand school custodians can also wipe smooth surfaces with a dampcloth and vacuum furniture and carpets if they’re concerned abouthead lice.To treat your child for head lice, just follow Guillebeau’stentips.last_img read more

Thank Your Cilia

first_imgThroughout your body, cilia (protrusions on cells, singular cilium) are monitoring the environment and sweeping your passages clean.Live Science posted an article about cilia. The simple-looking hairlike projections on cells are anything but simple. “These hairs are tiny, but mighty,” the article began. Your life depends on them.Here are some wonders of cilia:“A single cilium is made up of some 600 protein pieces—more than many other cellular structures.”Primary cilia (non-motile) act like antennae, sensing the external environment. Filled with proteins that amplify the signal, they act as a communications hub for the cell.During development, motile cilia direct the liver on the right side of the body and the heart on the left.Cilia sweep the airways clean of mucus by moving in concert in a wave-like motion.Motile cilia direct the female egg to the uterus. An extra-long cilium propels a sperm cell toward the egg. (This is called a flagellum but does not work the same as the rotary flagellum found in bacteria.)Cilia “circulate the fluid needed for proper brain function.““More than a dozen rare but serious genetic disorders stem from cilia glitches.”Reporter Amber Dance did not discuss how these organelles might have evolved. Instead, she reported that scientists at Brandeis University are trying to imitate them.This article was true to form: mentions of evolution are inversely proportional to the detail of complexity discussed. Biochemist Michael Behe made cilia an example of irreducible complexity in his first book Darwin’s Black Box, and discussed them in more mind-boggling detail in his second book, The Edge of Evolution. Make the design inference: (1) Cilia are composed of multiple interacting parts, all of which must be present for the cilium to work. (2) Removal or damage to a single part destroys the cilium and results in serious disease to the organism. Charlie, where are you?

Resource Discovery: Warrior Expeditions

first_img Hiker on top of a mountain peak By: Jason Jowers, M.S. MFT Return to article. Long DescriptionPixabay [Hiking Trekking Adventure by StockSnap, August 9, 2017, CC0]The healing power of nature cannot be understated. There are countless articles and blog posts out there that highlight the importance of being in nature for both physical and mental well-being. Also, there are many great organizations that are infusing exercise and the great outdoors for military service members, veterans, and military families.One such organization is called Warrior Expeditions. Warrior Expeditions was founded in 2013 by Sean Gobin, a United States Marine Corps veteran. Sean served 12 years as an Infantry Rifleman and Armor Officer. In 2012, he returned home after combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan and set out to hike the full 2,185 miles of the Appalachian Trail. It was from this long distance hiking trip that Sean recognized how therapeutic these experiences can be and founded Warrior Expeditions.These experiences outdoors can be very beneficial for everyone, but especially for military service members transitioning after their military experiences. With the effects of PTSD, being out in nature can quell some of the symptoms associated with it. To help veterans thrive on their hikes, Warrior Expeditions provides equipment and clothing, monthly stipends to resupply their items, and community support along the hiking routes. Also, there are several trails that can be traversed as well as two biking trails and one expedition to paddle down the Mississippi River.To learn more this fantastic organization, follow the link to Warrior Expeditions here.This post was written by members of the MFLN Family Development Team. The Family Development team aims to support the development of professionals working with military families. Learn more about us at, and connect with us on Facebook, and on Twitter.

ECSA Shipping to See Next Steps in Emissions Decrease Soon

first_imgzoom The next steps in CO2 reduction for shipping could be determined at the end of October 2016, according to the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA).The announcements comes on the back of International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) agreement on a new global market-based measure to control Green House Gas (GHG) emissions from international aviation reached last week.“We are confident that at the end of this month the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) will decide on the next steps for shipping,” ECSA President, Niels Smedegaard, said.The shipping industry has a mandatory global CO2 reduction regime which has been in force since 2013. IMO will now build on the substantial CO2 reductions already achieved by shipping, introducing a global CO2 data collection system, which will be fully operational by 2018.Based on the data collected and a real understanding of the emissions, realistic targets for CO2 emission reduction can be set for the sector, according to ECSA.“We fully support our colleagues at the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) in their recent plea to set a timeline for the further reduction of the shipping sector’s GHG emissions,” Smedegaard said, adding that “it is important that IMO doesn’t stop at data collection and effectively responds to the Paris Agreement on climate change.”last_img read more

Spring shaping up to be more ideal than years past for area

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — After a snowy start to Spring in the Peace Region, the return of warm temperatures and sunny skies means good news for area farmers.Kelly Kassian, manager of Viterra in Fort St. John, says that though some areas are still quite muddy, if the forecast holds out for the next week, some farmers might be able to start plowing their fields as early as a week from now. Kassian explained that there is still a decent amount of snow in the bush, and farmers will have to contend with muddy field edges and standing water in low spots. But, he said some farmers in the river valleys might even be able to start seeding just after this coming weekend.Kassian said that nearly all farmers were able to get all of last season’s harvest off the fields, despite the late start to the season. He said that the only issues with last season’s harvest revolved around the delays in getting grain from Northeast B.C. to port. Kassian added that though January and February were slow, rail traffic has greatly increased in Fort St. John, meaning a large amount of the backlog has been taken care of. Kassian said that as long as things don’t get too wet or too dry, this season is shaping up so far to be pretty decent.last_img read more

Was surprised when I was cast as villain in Brahmastra Mouni Roy

first_imgMumbai: Mouni Roy says her casting as the main antagonist in Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt-starrer “Brahmastra” came as a surprise for her. The 33-year-old actor, who made her Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar’s “Gold”, says she wants make versatile choices. “I am playing the main villain in the film. I am really looking forward to it. What is more liberating for me is playing different characters that challenges me. I was surprised initially that they wanted me to play the villain. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka “Ayan Mukherji (director) had seen something from ‘Naagin’ and felt I could play the villain. So you never know what clicks with whom. As an actor you should be willing to experiment and be versatile otherwise you can’t learn and grow,” Mouni told PTI. “Brahmastra” also featuring megastar Amitabh Bachchan, will serve as the first film in the trilogy. Mouni says working with the team has been an enriching experience. “My life is fulfilled after working with Mr Bachchan. Ranbir and Alia are sweethearts, they are too good. They all are such big stars that you get scared walking on the sets. Also Read – Salman Khan remembers actor Vinod Khanna “They all have been so generous, welcoming and made me feel comfortable. With great success and talent they als have that humility and are accepting people from outside,” she adds. “Brahmastra”, produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, will release on December 20. Mouni will be seen next in “RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter” opposite John Abraham. The film releases on April 5.

Lauderdales presence helps OSU swat away competition

Somebody asked Ohio State center Dallas Lauderdale if he was happy with his performance in Friday’s win over California, a game in which the junior blocked seven shots. Before he could answer, junior guard Jon Diebler gave his two cents. “I like having him back there,” Diebler said.It seems clear that this OSU team doesn’t need a lot of points from the center position, with all of the scoring coming from other positions. If his performance Friday was a sign of things to come, Lauderdale is ready to be that dominant defensive presence the Buckeyes need.“Coach [Thad Matta] always tells me to own the paint,” Lauderdale said. “Anything in the paint, offensively and defensively, is mine. I really take that to heart and that’s what I need to do.”Lauderdale said that mentality was not something that came right away. He said he didn’t own the paint as a freshman or for most of his sophomore season. It was not until the end of last year, Lauderdale said, that he really began to understand his role on the team.“We need a post presence to just go hold down the post and open things up for the wings so that they can do what they do,” Lauderdale said. “Owning the paint is going to open things up for the wings. [The other centers and I] can’t just fade into the background.”With Lauderdale returned from a hand injury, the Buckeyes have regained the low post presence that was lacking in his absence. Kyle Madsen and Zisis Sarikopoulos sufficed as temporary replacements, but neither has the defensive prowess of Lauderdale. With Lauderdale back, Diebler said the Buckeyes have confidence in their second line of defense. “If I get blitzed, my man Dallas is back there,” Diebler said. “Just having a guy, a threat back there and knowing that he can not just block shots, but alter shots, it gives you that much more confidence on defense.”Lauderdale’s development as a shot blocker is encouraging, Matta said, and he has adapted an ability to keep the ball in bounds after a block.Last season there were a number of times Lauderdale would block a shot into the second or third row of the stands, and although the thunderous blocks were a sight to see, they allowed the opposition to retain possession. Now, Lauderdale seems to have changed his style. “He had a block against Cal where he blocked the ball back in bounds, which is a huge step,” Matta said. “I actually saw in his eyes, when he saw that he could block it he realized he could deflect it back in bounds. Those are little things that hopefully we continue to expand on.”Lauderdale acknowledged that in the past he might have had a flair for the dramatic. But now, after studying some of the game’s greats, he has become the shot blocker Matta wants him to be. “I pay attention to old school blockers such as Bill Russell, how he always kept it in bounds,” Lauderdale said. “I’ve also been watching Dwight Howard and how he just catches it. Instead of swatting it into the stands I might try and catch one.” read more
