Pick Peach Trees.

first_imgIt’s time to start thinking about planting fruit trees. Georgians start thinking peaches.January is usually a good time to put your favorite variety of peach in the ground. But before you plant, learn about several great new varieties available for some regions of the state. In south Georgia, you may plant old standards like ‘Flordaking’ and ‘June Gold.’ Be aware that they have some quality problem. ‘Flordadawn’ is a good choice if you want to be the first on your street to offer fruit to your neighbors. ‘Juneprince’ is a very reliable variety, and you can count on a crop in most years. Its attractive color and good size make it a nice replacement for ‘Coronet’ in South Georgia. If you plant ‘Delta,’ a nice sweet peach with good hanging quality, make sure you to plant it with a pollinizer. The very pretty ‘Suncoast’ nectarine or ‘White Robin,’ a nice white fleshed peach, are good choices. The best late-fruiting variety in south Georgia is ‘Suwannee.’ A good nectarine is ‘Sunfire.’ Next year look for a wonderful new variety named ‘Gulfprince.’ It has beautiful color, size, flavor, and will hang on the tree longer than most other varieties available for that region. Generally order your trees on the Nemaguard rootstock.Middle Georgians can choose from several new varieties. ‘Springprince’ is the earliest producer. ‘Rubyprince,’‘June princess nectarine,’‘Southern Pearl,’ ‘Sureprince’ and ‘Blazeprince’ all are ready for harvest in June. For late season fruite, select ‘Autumnprince.”North Georgia can reliably select from some older attractive varieties such as ‘Redhaven’ (late June), or ‘Cresthaven'(late July) and a couple of fairly new varieties, ‘Encore’ and ‘Bounty.’ These trees should be ordered on either Halford or Lovell rootstock. In mid-July you can harvest ‘Bounty,’ a very red peach, that requires less thinning than other varieties and has a nice size and shape. ‘Encore’ fruit, available in early August in north Georgia, isn’t the prettiest peach you’ll find, but has good size, flavor and yield. Its higher bud hardiness makes it a good selection for the northern parts of Georgia where late frosts can be a problem. You can order trees for $4 to $6 per tree. Here are several nurseries that supply trees for our area:Cumberland Valley Nursery (800)492-0022)HollyDale Nursery (800)222-302Vaughn Nursery (931)934-2715Reserve your trees as soon as possible for January delivery.When your trees arrive, keep them in a cool area out of the sun (a basement or outdoor storage room will be best) surrounded in plastic until you can plant them. For planting advice, contact your local county extension agent for the bulletin Home Garden Peaches and Nectarines. It not only describes the best planting procedures, but also instructs on tree maintenance, training and pruning.last_img read more

Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)announced Thursday that Vermonts five NeighborWorks organizations aregetting $1.2 million in NeighborWorks America grants.  According toNeighborWorks America, a federally funded nonprofit housing organization, theirpartnership with the Vermont NeighborWorks organizations will help invest $46million into Vermont communities this year to stimulate economic developmentand bring more affordable housing opportunities to Vermonters.  . . .Leahy Helped Create 1st NeighborWorks Organization In Vermont In 1993center_img Leahy, a senior member ofthe Senate Appropriations Committee and of its Subcommittee on Transportationand Housing and Urban Development, which handles the Senates work inwriting the annual budget bills that fund NeighborWorks America, helpedestablish Vermonts first NeighborWorks organization in 1993 through agrant to Rutland West NHS, currently NeighborWorks of Western Vermont. Leahy said Vermont organizations depend on annual NeighborWorks grants toprovide a wide variety of housing-related services from affordable housingdevelopment to homeownership counseling and the establishment of revolving loanfunds or alternative mortgage solutions for Vermonters struggling to purchasehomes.Despite increased demandfor affordable housing options for low to moderate income Americans, Leahy saidthe Bush Administration has essentially level-funded the NeighborWorks Americaprogram nationwide below $120 million during each of the past threeyears.  And despite the nationwide housing foreclosure crisis and housingslump, the President actually seeks to cut $155 million from the program in hisbudget proposal submitted to Congress this week.  Earlier this year, inthe budget for the current fiscal year, Congress more than doubled theNeighborWorks America budget to address the national home foreclosurecrisis.  That new funding, unrelated to Wednesdays announcement,will be competitively awarded to housing organizations later this year.Over the last 15years, since we established Vermonts first NeighborWorks organization,we have expanded the number of nonprofit housing organizations eligible forthese grants and brought millions of dollars into Vermont to house the mostvulnerable Vermonters and to make homeownership a reality for manyothers, said Leahy, who has led an effort to increase funding forhousing programs within HUD and for the NeighborWorks program.  Wecould do much more to stimulate this economy and fend off recession if the BushAdministration focused on the urgent housing needs of Americans instead ofpumping tens of billions of dollars every month overseas for the misguided warin Iraq.  I will continue to fight for affordable housing assistance forVermonters, who are struggling all the more as the economy worsens.  Asfar as the federal budget is concerned, this is the kind of high priority hereat home that the war in Iraq is not. ·       Central Vermont Community Land Trust in Barre: $144,725·       Champlain Housing Trust in Burlington: $412,296·       Gilman Housing Trust of Newport and Lyndonville: $207,428·       NeighborWorks of Western Vermont in West Rutland: $265,000·       Rockingham Area Community Land Trust in Springfield: $215,000 NeighborWorks was established in 1978 by Congress.  According toNeighborWorks America, over the last five years the NeighborWorks network hashelped leverage nearly $15 billion in Americas urban, rural, andsuburban communities; assisted more than 80,000 Americans become homeowners;and developed and managed more than 70,000 units of affordable, high-qualitymultifamily housing.  This year, NeighborWorks America will provide morethan $76 million to its network of more than 230 community-based nonprofitorganizations.  # # # # #last_img read more

Senate finds a way to pay for Art. V

first_imgSenate finds a way to pay for Art. V April 30, 2003 Jan Pudlow Associate Editor Regular News Senate finds a way to pay for Art. V Associate EditorWhen Article V, Revision 7 hits July 1, 2004, the huge price tag for the state will be between $317 million and $400 million. Ideas of where those dollars will come from, in what Sen. Rod Smith, D-Gainesville, calls “a monumental funding dilemma,” have been flying fast and furious in the Senate, including a controversial surcharge for civil cases with judgments over $100,000.The clerks of courts must have the ability to make the court system self-funding out of fees and surcharges. As it is now, clerks operate at a deficit and counties pick up the tab of more than $250 million.But not anymore, once the funding shifts from the counties to the state to pay for the state court system.“We are working to make this a self-funded system, as it was supposed to be,” said Smith, chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Article V Implementation and the Judiciary on April 15.Five days earlier at the Senate Finance and Taxation Committee, when Smith outlined what he called “innovative ways” to pay for it all, he said: “We said all along this is going to be a wash. The increased funding that will go into the state budget for 2004-05 will be money we take from the counties, recognizing that they will be relieved of an equal amount of court system funding obligation.”Highlights of the financial make-over strategies taking shape in the Senate include:• Redirecting court-related fees and costs from the counties to the clerks, an amount of about $162 million.• Increasing court fees and costs to users of the court system to cover the cost of the clerks and paying a portion of the state court system’s costs. Overall, the net increase is estimated at $196 million for fiscal year 2004.• Redirecting a portion of future revenue-sharing growth from the counties to the state. The plan would freeze the growth on the half-cent sale tax for two years. An amount of $175 million in FY 2004-05 would go to the state, representing two years growth that the counties would have received in the absence of the constitutional changes in the Senate Article V bill. Once annual tax receipts grow past $175 million, Smith said, the counties would then begin to receive the increasing amounts over what they now receive. In earlier drafts, municipalities were included, too.“But that wasn’t fair to municipalities, because they aren’t part of this fight,” Smith said. “So we will exempt out about $57 million from that.”Not fair to poor people in civil cases was deleting in one fell swoop $7.5 million of legal services funding from the counties, warned Kent Spuhler, statewide director of Legal Services of Florida, Inc.“That would be devastating to an already overworked system,” Spuhler told Smith.Smith responded that he doesn’t want to give the counties another mandate, and suggested Spuhler meet with the lobbyists for the counties to work something out.In the hallway after the meeting, Spuhler said: “At this point, we’re just gone. It’s like vanished into smoke. He can say, ‘Work with the counties,’ but what if the counties say, ‘You’re gone. We have other issues?’”Before rewriting the law, for the last three decades, the statutes authorized that counties could choose to add dollars to the filing fees and have that directed to legal services programs. Without any discussion, in the process of moving filing fees around in the statutes, that authorization was cut.“It’s the third largest funding source statewide. For some programs, it’s huge,” Spuhler said. “The Dade County program gets $1.4 million in funding. The Tampa program gets $1 million. Our programs can’t take hits like that.”Smith’s idea of charging the users of the court system — particularly a one-tenth of 1 percent surcharge on civil judgments of $100,000 or higher — sparked debate from Sen. Skip Campbell, D-Tamarac, chair of the Finance and Taxation Committee.“Here’s my problem. I consider it to be constitutional problem on taking,” Campbell said. “It’s not an access issue. It’s a taking. I’m going to do an amendment, though you can try to convince me otherwise. It is a taking of someone’s property or money without any justification or basis for it.”Smith countered: “If you do, I will be moving on the floor to put it back. That would be a terrible mistake, in my view. One of the problems we had when we tried to look at the court system was it has to be user-driven. That’s the way it was designed by the constitution. The problem for us is that we recognize it runs at a significant deficit.“We also tried to figure out how we could differentiate one of the real injustices of the use of the courts. For instance, last year in my circuit, one large business concern sued another large business concern in a nine-week jury trial, requiring hundreds of jurors to be produced. They had a special master assigned for almost a whole year just to deal with the trade secrets issue. At the end of the year, there was a verdict in excess of $80 million. That case cost exactly the same filing fee as a simple divorce. There’s something unjust about that.”One-tenth of 1 percent on $100,000 is only $100, Smith argued, shared by both sides in a case. It would only be collected when the judgment is paid. And if the case is appealed, there would be no collection.It seemed more fair than other ways to raise money from the users of the court system, Smith continued. He didn’t want to raise filing fees too high, because that would cause an access issue for the little guy trying to get his day in court. Another idea to rent a courtroom for $150 a day, Smith said, seemed “onerous.”“You better get done in one day or it’s $300. When you go to court, whatever time it takes, you ought to take. The trial lawyers would go crazy if we did that, because in reality they are the ones who would be paying it. The plaintiff doesn’t have the money,” Smith said.Smith said he “remains convinced and comfortable” with his case law research that a service fee on larger awards would not be an unconstitutional taking.Other costs to users of the court system in the Senate plan include:• A $125 cost would be charged for criminal convictions.“I will tell you it will be changed as we go forward,” Smith told the Finance and Taxation Committee. “It is proposed to help offset the charges of prosecution, but also the cost of our dependency indigent representation.• The filing fee for circuit court cases would be raised from $200 to $300. Of the $300 fee, $65 goes to the state and the remainder to the clerks. This fee hike is expected to generate $69.3 million for the clerks and $20.6 million for the state.• County court civil filing fees are raised to $50 for claims under $100 (currently $48), and $150 for claims $100 to $2,500 (currently $107), and $300 for claims over $2,500 (currently $153). The new county civil fees will generate $97 million to the clerk.• A 50-percent across-the-board increase in service charges will generate $57.4 million to the clerks.Smith said the increase in filing fees for the clerks will be enough to make up the $200-plus million shortfall.“The good news is it also generates additional dollars. We can use those monies to fund court-related costs, including judicial salaries,” Smith said.“If we can accomplish all of this, we will have met our funding obligations for Article V entirely. That’s a $325-million commitment that has been foisted upon us,” Smith said.last_img read more

Kaitlyn Bristowe Butts Heads With Carrie Ann Inaba

first_imgAfter his dance, the singer became emotional and dedicated the dance to other addicts watching. “I know it’s hard but with a little courage, you can overcome,” he said through tears, while Burke, who has been sober for two years, hugged him.When it came time for the group dances, Nev Schulman, Chrishell Stause and Nelly went first, dancing a cha-cha to Lady Gaga’s “Rain on Me.” Inaba voted this part of the contest, saying Nelly had the most improved cha-cha. She then had to rate each pair, giving them up to two bonus points: Nev received three, while both Chrishell and Nelly earned two each.Next up was Justina Machado and Johnny Weir, who both had to perform a Viennese waltz to “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston, judged by Derek Hough. He gave three points to Johnny and two to Justina.Lastly, AJ, Kaitlyn and Skai Jackson were given a samba to “Levitating” by Dua Lipa and were judged by Bruno Tonioli. AJ and Kaitlyn were each given three points while Skai was given two.At the end of the night, Skai and Alan Bersten and Chrishell and Gleb Savchenko were in the bottom two. Ultimately, the Selling Sunset star was sent home.Scroll through the gallery below for the full leaderboard. While she put on her best face for her dance, Carrie Ann Inaba was still not impressed. “I know last week was a tough week, but you came back with grace and energy. I’m a little torn right now,” she said, before saying that while it was one of her “best performances,” there was issues with one of her flips — which Inaba thought was a lift.That was only the start of the emotion during the night. Nelly dedicated his rumba to his late sister, who died in 2005. He danced to one of her favorite songs, “Nobody Knows” by The Tony Rich Project. While it wasn’t his best dance, the judges applauded him for showing a different, very emotional side and assured him that his sister would be very proud.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Although it wasn’t a double elimination like originally planned, the Monday, November 2, episode of Dancing With the Stars was still an intense one. At the top of the show, Kaitlyn Bristowe admitted to partner Artem Chigvintsev that she was really struggling after her low scores the week before.“I feel like I’m never going to be good enough for what they hold me to,” the former Bachelorette, 35, said through tears during rehearsal. “Sometimes you just need a good cry.”- Advertisement – Later in the night, Jeannie Mai, who was forced to withdraw from the competition due to a throat abscess, emotionally spoke out from her hospital room ahead of getting emergency surgery. Following the operation, a doctor came in and told her if she had waited another day, her throat would have closed. The entire group — including host Tyra Banks — was in tears following her video.The last solo dance of the night was AJ McLean and Cheryl Burke‘s rumba. During the package, he opened up about his battle with drugs and alcohol, which began while on set of 2001’s “The Call.” He revealed he doesn’t remember the next two years. Over the next 19 years, he made many trips to rehab and overdosed twice. Now, he’s been sober 11 months.He last relapsed while in Las Vegas for a Backstreet Boys show. When he arrived home, everything changed. “My youngest daughter went to come cuddle with me and then she walked away from me and said, ‘You don’t smell like my daddy,’” he recalled. “My kid saved my life.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

WHO cites more evidence of H5N1’s bias toward young

first_imgFeb 14, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) latest analysis of human H5N1 avian influenza cases adds to previous evidence that young people are more susceptible to the virus and more likely to die of it than older people.In examining 256 confirmed cases over 3 years, the WHO found that 89% of patients were younger than 40, and the case-fatality rate for patients older than 50 was 40%, versus 76% for 10- to 19-year-olds and 60% for all ages. The findings were reported in the Feb 9 issue of the WHO’s Weekly Epidemiological Record.The agency said the reason for the skewed age distribution is unknown and does not appear to be entirely a result of the preponderance of young people in the affected countries.Analysts looked at all human H5N1 cases reported to the WHO that had onset dates between Nov 25, 2003, and Nov 24, 2006. The report updates a previous analysis that covered the 205 cases up to Apr 30, 2006. Findings concerning fatality rates, age distribution, and other major variables were similar in the earlier study and the new one.The 256 cases came from 10 countries, with Vietnam and Indonesia together accounting for 165. The median age of case-patients was 18, and slightly more than half were younger than 20, the report says. The sex balance was nearly even (129 males, 127 females).By age, the toll was highest among those younger than 20, with about 65 cases each among children under 10 and in 10- to 19-year-olds, according to a graph in the report. It shows about 53 cases among 20- to 29-year-olds, 41 cases among people in their 30s, 14 among those in their 40s, and 15 in those over 50.The overall 60% case-fatality rate broke down by age-group as follows: under 5 years, 44%; 5 to 9 years, 49%; 10 to 19 years, 76%; 20 to 29 years, 63%; 30 to 39 years, 66%; 40 to 49, 43%, and over 50, 40%.The fatality rate was higher among women than men—65% versus 55%—but the difference was not statistically significant. However, the difference reached significance for patients in their 20s and 30s, with a 75% fatality rate for women and 52% for men.A count of cases by year (November to November) showed that cases doubled in the second year of the 3-year period (93 versus 45) and increased by more than 25% in the third year (118 versus 93).The median time from onset of symptoms until hospitalization was 4 days (range, 0 to 18). In fatal cases, patients lived a median of 9 days from onset of illness until death (range, 2 to 31 days).The WHO calculated the age-related incidence of cases in Vietnam and Indonesia in an effort to determine if the skewed age distribution of cases simply reflects more people in the younger age brackets. In Vietnam, the incidence was roughly the same for all age-groups (about 11 to 14 cases per 10 million people) up to age 40 and then dropped off. In Indonesia the incidence was about the same up to age 30 (about 4 to 5 cases per 10 million people) and declined in the older groups.”The relatively small number of cases precludes the drawing of definite conclusions, although the analysis seems to suggest that the higher number of cases among young people is not solely due to the age structure of the population,” the report says. “In both Indonesia and Viet Nam, there appears to be a higher incidence among younger people. However, detection bias cannot be ruled out since children and young adults might be more likely to be diagnosed than younger people.”Two British scientists have hypothesized that most people older than 35 have some unexplained immunity to H5N1 avian flu. Matthew Smallman-Raynor of the University of Nottingham and Andrew D. Cliff of the University of Cambridge offer the suggestion in a letter in the March issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases, published early online.The two researchers looked at age data for 169 patients whose cases were confirmed between January 2004 and May 2006 (they say age information for another 47 patients was not available from published sources). The median age of patients was 18, the same as in the WHO report.The researchers reported the following estimated age-group case rates per million population: 0 to 9 years, 0.15; 10 to 19 years, 0.15; 20 to 29 years, 0.13; 30-39 years, 0.08; and 40 and older, 0.02. In looking at 30- to 39-year-olds, they found that 21 patients were 30 to 35, while only six were between 36 and 39.Smallman-Raynor and Cliff note that case rates are about the same in all age groups under 30 and that few people older than 35 have been infected. They also conclude that “the skewed distribution of cases toward children and young adults transcends sex, reporting period, patient outcome, geographic location, and, by implication, local cultural and demographic determinants.”These observations, they suggest, “are consistent with a biological model of geographically widespread immunity to avian influenza A (H5N1) in persons born before 1969, i.e., about 35 years before the onset of the currently recognized panzootic in domestic poultry.””If an element of immunity to avian influenza A (H5N1) does exist in older populations, its possible association with geographically widespread (intercontinental) influenza A events before the late 1960s merits further investigation,” they conclude.The WHO report says a deeper analysis of the clinical data from human H5N1 cases will be conducted at an international meeting scheduled for Mar 19 to 21 in Turkey.See also:Feb 9 WHO Weekly Epidemiological Recordhttp://www.who.int/wer/2007/wer8206.pdfJun 30, 2006, WHO Weekly Epidemiological Recordhttp://www.who.int/wer/wer8126.pdfLetter from Smallman-Raynor and Cliff in Emerging Infectious Diseaseshttp://www.cdc.gov/eid/content/13/3/06-0849.htmlast_img read more

UK watchdog sends formal warning to Guinness Peat on pension funds

first_imgGuinness Peat Group (GPG) has received warning notices from the UK Pensions Regulator (TPR) relating to potential underfunding of Brunel Holdings Pension Scheme and Staveley Industries Retirement Benefits Scheme, which GPG sponsors.The warning letters – anticipated by GPG last November – set out the TPR case team’s view that it may be reasonable for the regulator’s determinations panel to issue a financial support direction (FSD) against specified targets, namely GPG and GPG (UK) Holdings in respect of the Brunel scheme, and against GPG, GPG (UK) Holdings, Staveley Services and Staveley Industries in respect of the Staveley scheme.An FSD is a direction requiring financial support to be put in place for a pension scheme.Though this does not necessarily mean a cash contribution, it would affect GPG’s plans to return surplus capital to shareholders. The strategic investment holdings group, which is listed in the UK, New Zealand and Australia and includes textile manufacturer Coats, has sold off its portfolio of global investments over recent years, raising around £700m (€834m).Half of this amount has already been paid out, through cash payments and share buybacks.Chris Healy, company secretary at GPG, said: “It is too early to be certain that any FSDs will ultimately be issued or of the quantum of any required support for the schemes.“Whether it is reasonable to issue an FSD will be independently considered by the determinations panel of TPR and, if an FSD is issued by the determinations panel, the matter may be fully reconsidered by the upper tribunal.”The GPG board is now reviewing the warning notices with its advisers. The targets will have the opportunity to make written submissions to TPR so the case team may consider whether to proceed with its submission that the determinations panel issue FSDs.Any hearing before the determinations panel is unlikely to take place earlier than the second half of this year.In the interim, GPG continues to engage constructively with the trustees of the schemes, said Healy.Meanwhile, TPR said it would not be in a position to conclude its investigation and decide whether to issue a warning notice in relation to the Coats Pension Plan before the end of 2013, but would be looking to do so as soon as practicable.last_img read more

Bad news ‘stresses’ women more

first_imgHealthLifestyle Bad news ‘stresses’ women more by: – October 11, 2012 Are women affected by the news more than men?Bad news stories, such as those about murder, seem to alter the way women respond to stressful situations, according to a small study.Women produced more stress hormones in tests if they had read negative newspaper stories.The study on 60 people, published in the journal PLoS One, showed there was no equivalent effect in men.Experts said the findings showed “fascinating” differences between the sexes.Researchers in Canada compiled newspaper clippings of negative stories, including accidents and murders, as well as neutral stories such as film premieres.Men and women read either negative or neutral stories and then did a scientific stress test. Levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, were measured throughout the study.One of the researchers, Marie-France Marin, from the University of Montreal, said: “Although the news stories alone did not increase stress levels, they did make the women more reactive, affecting their physiological responses to later stressful situations.”Men’s cortisol levels were not affected. She added: “It’s difficult to avoid the news, considering the multitude of news sources out there.“And what if all that news was bad for us? It certainly looks like that could be the case.”‘Gender puzzle’The scientists suggested that women may be naturally better at identifying threats to their children, which affects the way they respond to stress.Professor Terrie Moffitt, from the institute of psychiatry at King’s College London, said: “According to self-report studies, women say they are more ‘stress reactive’ on average than men. “This study adds fascinating new evidence of change in a stress hormone after an experimental… challenge. “Stress researchers confront a real gender puzzle: As a group, women seem more reactive to stressors, but then they go on to outlive men by quite a few years. “How do women manage to neutralise the effects of stress on their cardiovascular systems? An answer to that question would improve health for all of us.”Other experts warned that the study was small so the reported effect would need further testing.
