Unwelcome Fungus

first_imgIf you know a child has eaten a yard mushroom, collect a sample of it and call thepoison control center immediately. Doctors will need to know what mushroom was eaten toproperly treat the child.Brown recommends prevention to keep mushrooms in the woods. “Keep your lawnmoist,” he said. “If it stays adequately moist, the fungus will stay undergroundand won’t produce mushrooms.”If you already have mushrooms, kick them over, run over them with the mower or pullthem up. That keeps them from releasing the spores that spread the fungi. Then preventfurther lawn damage by thoroughly aerating the soil.Do that by poking holes in the ground with a pitchfork, garden cultivator or aerator.Your local garden center may rent aerators that attach to your riding lawn mower.”After you aerate the soil, water the area to dilute any toxins and wash themthrough the soil,” Brown said. If a patch of grass has died, reestablish grass inthat area next spring, and keep it moist to prevent new mushroom growth. “Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi that live below the soilsurface,” Brown said. “A lot of people think mushrooms are a sign of soilproblems. But they’re not bad for the soil.”In fact, fungi are a vital part of a healthy soil ecosystem, Brown said. The fungi thatlive in the soil help break down dead plants and other organic materials.”We just don’t want them in our yards,” Brown said. While the fungi thatproduce mushrooms are good for soil, they’re not good for your lawn. And they can beharmful to your pets and even your children.Circles or partial circles of mushrooms, called fairy rings, show where a colony offungi is hard at work helping material decay. The ‘fingers’ of the fungi extend radiallyfrom the colony, and mushrooms grow where the fingers emerge from the soil.Fairy rings are the hardest mushrooms to deal with. “Not only are the plantsthemselves hard to control,” Brown said, “but they can damage your lawn.”Fairy rings and other mushrooms produce toxins that can kill lawn grasses. So even whenyou get rid of the mushrooms, you could still have a dead patch in your yard.The toxin mushrooms most commonly produce is a cyanide-based chemical. So keep childrenand pets away from yard mushrooms to avoid poisoning or other health problems. Left-click to download the 9.16 M .jpg image; right-click to download the thumbnail image.

But oneemerging plant isn’t so welcome: mushrooms. A Universityof Georgia scientist said they’re popping up in yards all over the state.”We see mushrooms emerge when rain comes after an extended dry period,” said Ed Brown, an Extension Service plant pathologist with the UGA College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences. “Dry weather stresses these fungi. Then water becomes available, ittriggers the reproductive mechanism and we get mushrooms.”Mushrooms are plants. They don’t contain chlorophyll, the chemical that makes mostplants green, but they are plants.last_img

School Garden Workshops

first_imgThousands of Georgia schools are now home to school gardens. These gardens get children excited about learning and trying new vegetables, but they can often be difficult to use and maintain after the initial excitement wears off. This summer, University of Georgia Extension is offering targeted training sessions to help north and middle Georgia teachers and administrators make the most of existing school gardens or start new gardens. The course involves a short, online training program; some homework; and a half-day, hands-on workshop. The workshop will cover garden care and maintenance as well as strategies to build lesson plans around the school garden that cover state standards in all subject areas. Teachers will leave with a complete lesson plan that can be used when they head back to class in the fall, said Becky Griffin, workshop organizer and education program specialist with UGA Extension in Cobb County. Community and school garden experts with UGA Extension are offering the hands-on portion on Tuesday, June 23, in Griffin, Georgia; Thursday, June 25, in Athens, Georgia; and Tuesday, June 30, in downtown Atlanta. “We’re using online learning, home experiments and hands-on training to provide a one-of-a-kind learning experience to Georgia teachers,” Griffin said. “(Teachers will) come away with the knowledge needed to create a thriving garden as well as lesson plans to connect the garden to state standards.” The class costs $25 and is open to teachers across the state. For more information or to register, visit ugaurbanag.com/schoolgarden. Teachers who the complete the program will receive a certificate verifying their school garden training. UGA Extension has hundreds of online, easy to understand resources for teachers and parents to use in making their children’s school garden succeed. How-to publications, Georgia curriculum guides and best practices from successful gardens are available at extension.uga.edu/k12/school-gardens.last_img

Mate Rimac as an ambassador of our tourism. The second part

first_imgThus, Pierre-Oliver Cimon, who came from Canada to St. Sunday, points out that Croatia is well positioned in Europe and that you can be anywhere in Europe from Zagreb in two hours. On the other hand, Yutong Wu from China points out that he adores the lifestyle in Zagreb or the culture of living. Matthew Roppe from Great Britain points out that Zagreb reminds him of Paris, while Sacha Vražić from France says that Croatia has a very rich culture, and Cris Pooritt that we have a great climate and a lot of outdoor activities that are available. Thanks to Mate Rimac for once again using his reputation and reputation to tell a beautiful and positive story about Croatia, without anyone asking or asking him to do so. And this is not the first time. These are the real ambassadors of our beautiful country, including tourism. PS Did you know which protection mark is Rimac Concept_Two and Concept_One, vehicles on the side of the vehicle? But more on that soon. Anyway, the story behind the video. “Working and Living in Croatia”Is certainly a great big positive contribution to the positioning of Croatia through the economy, attracting international staff, and thus through tourism. Although Rimac car employees are not digital nomads in the true sense, because they are employees. Digital nomads are people who can do their job online via laptops and move office to other states. But, certainly, this story also contributes to positioning towards digital nomads. Even before the launch of the HrTurizam portal, while writing for Večernjak’s blogosphere, I made a story about Mata Rimac as ambassador of our tourism, and now after 5 years a sequel follows. // MATE RIMAC AS THE AMBASSADOR OF CROATIAN TOURISM Once again hat to the floor Rimac cars on this story, a story with global influence and reach and a story that is viewed quite differently by foreigners (of course in a positive context) than by ourselves. “Croatia may not be the first place you would think is home to companies that design, engineer and manufacture electric hypercars and high-performance EV technology. Nevertheless, we are proudly growing into a real center for innovation and engineering in Sveta Nedelja, on the outskirts of Zagreb. ” stands out in the description of the video. But the story of attracting digital nomads is much more than just visas and accommodation. To attract digital nomads, we need to round out the whole story according to their wants and needs or lifestyle. Because again, the motive for coming is not accommodation, but the way and culture of living. And I wonder: How “alive” are our destinations and what facilities do they offer outside the tourist season? This is a key issue, from the narrative to extend the tourist season as well as to attract digital nomads. It’s also a story about digital nomads. Digital nomads are a new trend and hot topic in Croatia. As we know, at the initiative of Jan de Jong for Croatia to introduce visas for digital nomads, a meeting was held in August with Prime Minister Andrej Plenković to discuss legislation that should allow free entry and work for digital by the end or beginning of the second year. nomads. As Jan de Jong himself pointed out at the conference in Dubrovnik, things have gone much further than the idea itself, and many concrete meetings have already been held on this topic. To summarize, all have one thing in common: Incredible security, our way and culture of living, a lot of activities available, the fact that almost everyone speaks English, Zagreb as a modern and urban city, hospitality, great food and wine, cheaper life than other European metropolises, proximity to the whole of Europe and other capitals by plane, as well as the fact that you are half an hour in nature and only two hours away from the Adriatic. Digital nomads as a trend Meet their stories… That’s how they released a video from Rimac cars “Working and Living in Croatia”Which focuses on the stories of their employees who moved to Croatia due to work in Rimac cars. By the way, Rimac cars alone employ 850 people, and some foreign employees come from 35 different countries. Also, it was recently held in Dubrovnik the first conference on digital nomads, where the Glavić Polyclinic offered free health examinations to all digital nomads who moved the office to Dubrovnik. Also, Valamar turned to digital nomads, and offered them special offers calls to Istria and the island of Krk. Matu Rimac does not need to be presented too much. However, the story of this article is another proactive move by Mate Rimac, who tries to promote Lijepa naša at every opportunity, both touristically and economically. In a video in which beautiful pictures from all over Croatia are exchanged, and Rimac car employees tell their stories and experiences about Croatia, as a place ideal for living. Although it is a top and expensive product, surely the possibility of renting the best electric read more

Jouska founder admits management negligence in Rp 13b client settlement

first_imgCofounder Aakar Abyasa Fidzuno of financial advisory firm PT Jouska Finansial Indonesia has admitted negligence in running the company, which has ultimately led the company and partners PT Mahesa Strategis Indonesia PT Amarta Investa Indonesia to dish out Rp 13 billion (US$879,177) in settlement claims to over 370 clients.Aakar said that the negligence stemmed from Jouska entering into a partnership with Mahesa Strategis, despite knowing full well that the firm was not properly licensed to broker stock or manage investments by the Financial Services Authority (OJK).“We also admit our negligence in using a mutual agreement with clients to give Mahesa Strategis access to their trading accounts, instead of using a discretionary trading account,” Aakar said at a press conference in Jakarta on Tuesday. The allegations came to light in July when former Jouska clients came forward on mainstream and social media to state that they had lost hundreds of millions of rupiah in investments mismanaged by Jouska and Mahesa Strategis.The clients said that most of their investments were used to buy shares in PT Sentral Mitra Informatika, whichhad lost 84.49 percent of its value since it was listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) in November 2018 using the code LUCK.The Indonesia office of the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) underlines that financial advisors may not manage client funds or trade stock in client portfolios even with the full discretion and consent of clients.Although Aakar admitted that he owned a 70 percent stake in Mahesa Strategis, he insisted that that it was not affiliated with Jouska. He added that his involvement as a passive shareholder of Mahesa Strategis was intended merely to help “friends” and to provide startup capital.“All I know is that [Mahesa Strategis] is a stock trading club run by experienced and licensed brokers from various securities companies,” he said.Aakar said that Mahesa Strategis had reached settlements with 45 out of 63 Jouska clients who had filed complaints. In addition, 328 out of 1,500 current Jouska clients had agreed to a settlement with Mahesa Investasi.“The total settlement reached Rp 13 billion. Some [clients] asked us to compensate their losses, while others asked Mahesa Strategis to buy back LUCK shares from them and trade them for other high-performing stocks,” he said.Aakar also said that he was committed to settling all complaints from Jouska clients.As regards the ongoing police investigation, Aakar said that he had only been summoned once for questioning. He also said that he had not received any formal notification from the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) on its money laundering investigation. The PPATK announced in early August that it was investigating Jouska for alleged money laundering following revelations on its suspected involvement in illicit investment and fund management activities.“Yes, the PPATK is investigating the Jouska case,” Dian Ediana Rae confirmed on Aug. 4 as quoted in by Tempo.co.The PPATK chairwoman added that the center would actively investigate other cases of investment fraud that had been opened by the OJK’s Investment Alert Task Force.Topics : He also acknowledged Jouska’s negligence in its standard operating procedure for communicating with clients, under which its advisors often acted as middlemen between Jouska’s clients and partnering financial institutions, including Mahesa Strategis.“This led many [clients] to believe that Jouska and Mahesa Strategis were related, when in fact they were not,” he said.The OJK shut down Jouska and partners Mahesa Strategis and Amarta Investa in late July, following allegations that the three unlicensed companies —all with affiliations to Aakar— were illicitly providing investment management services.None of the three companies were registered as investment management companies or securities companies with the OJK.last_img

Investors ‘remiss’ in overlooking physical climate risks – Schroders

first_imgSource: MSCI, Schroders. Based on most recent data available in March 2018This aggregate figure masked a range of risk exposures, said Howard, with some companies having more than 10% of value at risk and others not exposed to physical climate risk at all. The oil and gas, utilities and basic resources sectors were the most exposed to the physical impact of climate change, while technology, personal and household goods, and healthcare were the least exposed sectors. The asset manager came up with the figures by calculating what companies would have to pay to insure their physical assets against hazards caused by rising global temperatures and weather disruption. This implied cost was then compared with companies’ market values.“By putting a price on the cost of ‘neutralising’ climate damage we create an objective assessment of the impact on corporate valuations,” said Howard and Hassler in their report.It was unaware of any companies that had taken out multi-decade climate insurance, but defended its approach as “a robust way to gauge physical risk exposures, and… commonly used to answer other investment questions”.Schroders is not the first asset manager to warn about overlooking physical climate risks.Nicolas Moreau, CEO of DWS – formerly known as Deutsche Asset Management – has argued that investors should pay more attention to physical climate risks “with some urgency”. The asset manager has teamed up with a California-based climate intelligence advisory firm to assess companies’ exposure to catastrophic climate events. Investors have not been paying enough attention to physical climate risks, as opposed to the risks posed by steps to combat climate change, according to Schroders.With temperature rises lagging increases in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere by around 40 years, further disruption from the effects of changing weather patterns looked unavoidable, the asset manager said in a new report. This meant bigger risks to physical assets and infrastructure.With the exception of the energy sector, companies generally showed an appreciation of the risks posed by the disruptive impacts of physical climate change, wrote authors Andy Howard and Marc Hassler. Investors, however, had paid limited attention to physical climate risks, which seemed “remiss”, it said.More attention had been paid to the impacts of steps to limit temperature rises – typically referred to as “transition risks” – but these risks “rely on action to combat climate change that is far from assured”, argued the asset manager.Its latest climate change tracking analysis found that the pace of global warming was still double the target under the Paris Agreement because global action to limit its impact was still too slow.Howard, Schroders’ head of sustainable research, said that the order of magnitude was smaller with physical climate risks than in the case of transition risks, “but on the other hand we do know this is happening, we know it’s already playing out in front of us”.“When we talk about the risk of carbon pricing hitting $100 a tonne, that’s a risk we can’t yet say is going to happen,” he said. “We can say that it will need to happen or that it should happen, but the reality is that you can’t assume it’s baked in and a definite outcome.”Based on an analysis of around 11,000 listed companies across the world, Schroders found that 1-1.5% of value was exposed to physical climate risks across equity markets. Overall risk exposures can be gauged from the impact on equity indiceslast_img
