first_imgGood sanitation in the garden this fall will reduce disease problems next spring. Many disease-causing organisms can survive the winter in diseased plant debris. Reducing or eliminating these potential overwintering sites for pathogenic fungi, bacteria, nematodes and viruses will cut down on the occurrence of disease problems the following season.Many common foliar diseases can be partially controlled through good sanitation. Iris leaf spot, black spot on rose, tomato early blight, Cercospora leaf spot of ligustrum, and apple and crabapple scab are just a few examples. If leaf spot problems were a garden problem this year, remove and throw away plant debris and fallen leaves this fall. Removing crop debris from the garden prevents the overwintering of vegetable pathogens and insect pests. Many pathogens can survive the winter in plant debris, culled fruit or plant stubble left in the garden. Removing or plowing under crop stubble helps to destroy overwintering populations of pathogens. Equipment such as trowels and shovels that have been used in diseased areas of gardens and landscapes should be cleaned thoroughly before being used again. Also, prune out dead or diseased branches from shrubs or trees. Remember to prune at least 6 inches below the diseased area to make sure all diseased tissue is removed. Disinfect pruners in rubbing alcohol or a 10 percent bleach solution between cuts, and oil pruners when finished to prevent rust. Severe or renewal-type pruning should be postponed until February or March. A common question asked by home gardeners is whether pathogens on diseased plants can be destroyed through composting. The answer most often is “no.” If a compost pile reaches temperatures in the range of 110 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, however, most of the disease-causing organisms should be killed. A temperature probe can be used to monitor compost pile temperatures. If you are not sure if your compost pile reaches these high temperatures, it is best to discard diseased material by bagging and throwing it away or by burning if allowed. Simply maintaining a debris pile in the back of the yard will not effectively destroy plant pathogens.last_img read more

first_imgBy Kay Valle April 15, 2020 About 4,000 elements of the Honduran Armed Forces deliver food to the most vulnerable populations in the country, who are on lockdown as part of the government’s measures to curb the coronavirus spread.Food distribution efforts, which began on March 25 in Tegucigalpa, will continue in other departments to deliver about 800,000 bags of supplies during the first stage. Authorities expect to reach more than 3 million people in poor areas and in the cities with the most coronavirus cases.Honduran service members climb a steep hill in a Tegucigalpa neighborhood to deliver food to families in need, who are in quarantine due to the coronavirus spread. (Photo: Honduran Armed Forces’ Public Affairs)“We are doing everything in our power to save lives,” said Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández in a televised speech. “This includes ensuring that the most vulnerable people have food on their table, so they can be safe, even under the pressure of being quarantined.”The bags of supplies include, among other foods, rice, sugar, ground coffee, beans, flour, margarine, pasta, and instant chicken soup. They also include a hygiene kit with masks, antiseptic gel with alcohol, soap, toilet paper, and information about the coronavirus.The Logistics Directorate of the Armed Forces’ Joint Chiefs of Staff has been carrying out the food delivery plan day and night, executed by elements of the Humanitarian Rescue Unit (UHR, in Spanish), who are highly qualified to confront all kinds of challenges, such as traveling in hard-to-reach areas.“Some areas can only be reached on foot; our soldiers climb hills carrying the bags,” Air Force Colonel Yuri Chávez, director of the Armed Forces Public Affairs, told Diálogo.According to Private Luis Miguel Rivas, assigned to the Honduran Army’s UHR that has been distributing food in Tegucigalpa, the blessings that service members receive when delivering supplies are worth the steep hill climbs. “They remain in our hearts and give us the energy to continue delivering food,” Pvt. Rivas told Diálogo.While Pvt. Rivas, like his military comrades, has left his children and his family behind, he expressed pride in serving the Honduran population and providing support to people in need at a time of crisis. “I remember a special case, in the Los Pinos colony, Tegucigalpa; an elderly woman had eight people under her care. It made me really sad knowing how much need people have,” the soldier said.According to World Bank data, 60 percent of the 9.2 million Hondurans live in poverty, and in rural areas about one in five Hondurans lives in conditions of extreme poverty.In addition to food distribution, the Armed Forces have mobilized drinking water tanks to supply Tegucigalpa’s residents, who are undergoing a severe water shortage due to the drought that affected the country in late 2019. Since early April, the Armed Forces have also been manufacturing around 3,000 masks per day, while a team of engineers is working on prototype respirators to equip health centers.last_img read more

first_imgBringing diverse talent and perspectives together drives innovation. Consider research published in Human Resources Today showing that 77% of respondents “believed that organizations benefit from hearing different points of view from their employees, and the diverse points of view can lead to better products and services for customers.” A recent Boston Consulting Group survey reveals that companies with more diverse management teams have 19% higher revenue.With such data in mind, CO-OP Financial Services formed its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council in February. The Council’s mission statement and its vision for CO-OP is to “understand, attract and engage a diverse workforce where every employee can live up to their value; ensuring that our employee base reflects the consumers we serve. The result of this effort is an inclusive environment where diverse talent thrives.”None of us anticipated back in February that by March we’d be in the middle of a pandemic nor that a tragic event in May in Minneapolis would create a worldwide reaction. While more and more organizations are embracing diversity of thought in times of more normal business, our Council has brought focused perspective on diversity, equality and inclusion to CO-OP’s pandemic response. Specifically, we will support our organization’s desire to recognize and respond to employees’ individual needs, gifts and aspirations. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
