first_imgJoe Gibbs Racing driver Daniel Suarez is scheduled to have his sore thumb checked out a little more closely on Tuesday, according to a team spokesman.Suarez, caught up in Lap 2 wreck at Texas Motor Speedway that also involved Alex Bowman, Paul Menard, Austin Dillon and Ross Chastain, posted a video after the race that showed his left hand wrapped in a splint. A doctor will give it a closer look now that the driver is back in North Carolina.“The impact on Lap 2 hurt my thumb a little bit,” Suarez said in the video. “I just left the care center at the track. Should be good, but I think they’ll look at it later in the week and see what we’ve got going on.”Suarez was able to finish the race, logging 290 (of 334) laps to finish 29th.“It wasn’t exactly what I was planning, obviously,” Suarez said. “We’re going to catch a break here pretty soon, I’m sure about that.”last_img read more

UVM educational farm expands learning opportunities for students

first_imgUniversity of Vermont,Related Company: University of VermontA new farming education endeavor at the University of Vermont will give students the opportunity to learn about sustainable farm practices, contribute to the local food system and help support research needs of the university.Catamount Educational Farm in South Burlington will offer an extensive hands-on farm experience for post-traditional, undergraduate and high school students. Produce grown at the farm will be sold to select outlets within the UVM community, including University Dining Services, and be available at the UVM farm stand and through a CSA.Catamount Educational Farm is located at the UVM Horticulture Research and Education Center (HREC) on land that has been owned by the university for more than 60 years. After three successful years of the UVM Farmer Training Program managing three acres of vegetables at the HREC, UVM Continuing and Distance Education and the UVM College of Agriculture and Life Sciences created the Catamount Educational Farm by designating 13 acres for specialty crop production and academic programs.“The establishment of Catamount Farm will allow UVM to provide a dedicated, hands-on learning environment for students seeking diverse farming and management skills on a well-managed, productive farm,” said HREC Director Terence Bradshaw. “Since its purchase in 1952, the mission and vision for the ‘Hort Farm’ has been to provide research, education and outreach. Catamount Farm fulfills that mission and effectively moves UVM’s local food system efforts to the next level.”Catamount Educational Farm consists of five acres of diverse vegetables and eight acres of apples and grapes. The farm will continue to be home to the UVM Farmer Training Program for post-traditional students, as well as offer new courses such as the Sustainable Farm Practicum for undergraduate students and the Introduction to Sustainable Vegetable Farming for high school students.“Catamount Farm will provide a dynamic environment for immersive, experiential and relevant programs,” said Susie Walsh Daloz, who develops sustainable farm programming for UVM. “The expanded farm also allows us to reach a wide range of students, who now have the incredible opportunity to study sustainable farming while producing food for the UVM community.”Students will be integral to carrying out all activities of the farm, providing them with real and diverse sustainable farm management skills. “What’s unique and valuable at Catamount Farm is that production and education will go hand-in-hand,” said Laura Williams, manager of Catamount Farm. “Catamount Farm is so much more than a demonstration farm, and that’s what makes us remarkably different.”Source: UVM. 3.18.2014 For more information about Catamount Educational Farm, visit learn.uvm.edu/catamountfarm.last_img read more

Monsters Top Americans 4-3 in Overtime to Remain in Third in the Central

first_imgROCHESTER, NY – In the third of four meetings between the two teams this season the Lake Erie Monsters defeated the Rochester Americans in overtime on Saturday at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY by a final score of 4-3. With the win, the Monsters improved to 40-21-6-5 overall this season and with a .632 points percentage, remain alone in third place in the AHL’s Central Division standings.An even-strength goal from Rochester’s Eric O’Dell gave the Americans a 1-0 lead at 10:18 of the opening period before a five-on-five wraparound score from Trent Vogelhuber, assisted by Markus Hannikainen and John Ramage, tied the game at 12:57. The Amerks capped the first frame’s scoring at 17:32 with a Justin Bailey even-strength goal that made it 2-1 heading into the second.In the middle frame, Rochester’s Nick Baptiste pushed the score to 3-1 Amerks on the power-play at 5:08, but Lake Erie’s leading goal producer, Daniel Zaar, posted back-to-back tallies, from Sonny Milano and Mark Cundari at even-strength at 9:37 and from Alex Broadhurst and Oliver Bjorkstrand on the power-play at 15:14, to tie the game at three.After a scoreless third period, the Monsters claimed victory at 1:59 of a three-on-three overtime period when Michael Chaput cleanly drew back a right-circle offensive-zone faceoff and rookie Monsters defenseman Zach Werenski pounded home his first professional goal, in just his fourth pro game, to deliver Lake Erie a 4-3 win.Monsters goaltender Anton Forsberg improved to 22-10-5 in net for Lake Erie this season by virtue of a 28-save performance while Rochester’s Nathan Lieuwen stopped 29 of the 33 pucks he faced in defeat.Next up for the Monsters, it’s a Sunday rematch vs. the Amerks with full coverage, live from The Q, underway at 5:00 pm Matt Loede Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events.

Blood-boosters may give tiny preemies a developmental edge

first_imgCHICAGO | Two blood-building drugs injected soon after birth may give tiny preemies a lasting long-term edge, boosting brain development and IQ by age 4, a first-of-its-kind study found.The study was small but the implications are big if larger, longer studies prove the drugs help even the playing field for these at-risk children, the researchers and other experts say.Babies who got the medicine scored much better by age 4 on measures of intelligence, language and memory than preemies who didn’t get it. The medicine group’s scores on an important behavior measure were just as good as a control group of 4-year-olds born on time at a normal weight.The results are “super exciting,” said Dr. Robin Ohls, the lead author and a pediatrics professor at the University of New Mexico. She said it’s the first evidence of long-term benefits of the drugs when compared to no blood-boosting treatment.Even though the treated youngsters didn’t do as well as the normal-weight group on most measures, their scores were impressive and suggest greater brain development than the other preemies, Ohls said.They scored about 12 points higher on average on IQ tests than the untreated kids but about 10 points lower than the normal-weight group. On tests measuring memory and impulsive behavior, the treated kids fared as well as those born at normal weight.Here’s how those differences would show up in a preschool setting: The untreated group would be the kids who struggle a little in class, while the those who got the medicines would do OK but not as well as those born at a normal weight, said Dr. Michael Schreiber, a prematurity expert at the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital.Survival of extremely tiny preemies has improved dramatically in the past 50 years, but treatment for medical problems and developmental delays linked with prematurity has not kept pace, Schreiber said. He was not involved in the study.He said larger studies including more diverse patient populations are needed to determine if the drugs can help a broader range of preemies.The study involved 53 children, most white or Hispanic, born more than a month premature and weighing less than 3 pounds at hospitals in New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. Two dozen normal-weight children were also included.Results were published Monday in Pediatrics.Shortly after birth the preemies were randomly assigned to receive injections of either erythropoeitin (EPO), three times weekly; darbepoetin once a week for several weeks; or no treatment. The drugs build red blood cells and are approved to treat anemia caused by cancer treatment or resulting from other conditions.Preemies lack the ability to make new red blood cells and often need frequent blood transfusions to replace blood taken for lab tests. The drugs are now sometimes used to try to reduce their need for transfusions, in doses similar to the ones studied.The drugs can increase endurance by boosting oxygen levels in the blood, and have been implicated in some sports doping scandals.Dr. Sandra Juul, a University of Washington pediatrics professor, is leading a larger multi-center study of both drugs in preemies and said it’s too soon to recommend the medicines for treating developmental delays.Still, since almost half of infants born extremely early have significant developmental problems, any treatment that could improve their lives “is incredibly important,” Juul said.Pediatrics: https://www.pediatrics.orgPrematurity: https://tinyurl.com/pc8chddFollow AP Medical Writer Lindsey Tanner at https://www.twitter.com/LindseyTanner .

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Animals, Birds, Community Development, Community Forestry, Community Forests, Community-based Conservation, Conservation, Deforestation, Economics, Environment, Forests, Herps, Interviews, Podcast, Wildlife, Wildlife Conservation On today’s episode, a special report on the community-based conservation and agroforestry operations known as ejidos in Mexico.Mongabay Newscast host Mike Gaworecki traveled to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in February to visit several ejidos in the states of Quintana Roo and Campeche.
