Despite substantial declines in tuberculosis (TB) in the United States, in 2002, non-Hispanic blacks continued to have TB at rates eight times greater than non-Hispanic whites (1). To better understand racial disparities in TB, CDC analyzed surveillance data collected during 1991--2002, comparing TB cases in seven southeastern states* where TB rates were higher than the national average with TB cases in the rest of the United States. This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicated that TB rates among non-Hispanic blacks in the seven southeastern states continued to exceed those among non-Hispanic whites but were similar to rates among non-Hispanic blacks in the rest of the country. In addition, non-Hispanic blacks with TB in the southeastern states were more likely than non-Hispanic whites to report certain risk factors, suggesting that differences in socioeconomic status might create barriers to diagnosis and treatment. The continued disparity in TB cases underscores the ...

Diagnosable taxonomic units are fundamental to conservation biology and management of resources and the need for sound science in both fields is more pressing for aquatic ecosystems. Within freshwater crayfishes, the North American genus Orconectes is one of the most diverse in the World. Accurate assessments of species level relationships and species boundaries within the genus have historically been hampered by a low number of variable morphological characters and inadequate sampling from across the ranges of many taxa. We examine a diverse group of southeastern United States stream dwelling Orconectes in the subgenus Trisellescens using 16S, COI mtDNA, and morphology to resolve uncertainties in species boundaries. Our results suggest that strong divergences exist between taxa found above and below the Fall Line in parts of the southeastern United States and the taxonomy for taxa found in that region should remain unchanged. However, using both molecular and morphological datasets we are unable to

Most of the southeastern part of the United States is dominated by the humid subtropical climate (Cfa/Cwa). As one nears the southern portions of Florida, the climate gradually becomes tropical as winters are freeze free and all months have a mean temperature above 64.4 °F (18.0 °C) (the defined coldest monthly mean temperature of tropical climates). Seasonally, summers are generally hot and humid throughout the entire region. The Bermuda High pumps hot and moist air mass from the tropical Atlantic Ocean and eastern Gulf of Mexico westward toward the southeast United States, creating the typical sultry tropical summers. Daytime highs are often in the upper 80s to lower 90s F.[4][5] Rainfall is summer concentrated along the Gulf Coast and the South Atlantic coast from Norfolk, VA southward, reaching a sharp summer monsoon like pattern over peninsular Florida, with dry winters and wet summers. Sunshine is abundant across the southeastern United States in summer, as the rainfall often comes in ...

Objectives The purpose of this study was to examine race- and sex-based variation in the associations between modifiable risk factors and incident heart failure (HF) among the SCCS (Southern Community Cohort Study) participants. Background Low-income individuals in the southeastern United States have high HF incidence rates, but relative contributions of risk factors to HF are understudied in this population. Methods We studied 27,078 black or white SCCS participants (mean age: 56 years, 69% black, 63% women) enrolled between 2002 and 2009, without prevalent HF, receiving Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The presence of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, physical underactivity, high body mass index, smoking, high cholesterol, and poor diet was assessed at enrollment. Incident HF was ascertained using International Classification of Diseases-9th revision, codes 428.x in Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data through December 31, 2010. Individual risk and population attributable ...

Vertical profiles of submicron aerosol from in situ aircraft-based measurements were used to construct aggregate profiles of chemical, microphysical, and optical properties. These vertical profiles were collected over the southeastern United States (SEUS) during the summer of 2013 as part of two separate field studies: the Southeast Nexus (SENEX) study and the Study of Emissions and Atmospheric Composition, Clouds, and Climate Coupling by Regional Surveys (SEAC4 RS). Shallow cumulus convection was observed during many profiles. These conditions enhance vertical transport of trace gases and aerosol and create a cloudy transition layer on top of the sub-cloud mixed layer. The trace gas and aerosol concentrations in the transition layer were modeled as a mixture with contributions from the mixed layer below and the free troposphere above. The amount of vertical mixing, or entrainment of air from the free troposphere, was quantified using the observed mixing ratio of carbon monoxide (CO). Although ...
For the index SNP rs10941679 in the 5p12 region, we found evidence for an increased risk for the G allele, consistent with the original GWAS finding in European populations (13). Analysis of the Black Womans Health Study and the African American sample from the Multiethnic Cohort Study both also found a nonsignificant trend for increased risk with the G allele at this SNP (13, 20, 21). Similarly, our marginal finding for a trend for an increased risk for the G allele at rs1219648 at 10q26.1/FGFR2 is consistent in direction, both with the original GWAS finding (10) and with combined results for African Americans from the Southern Community Cohort Study and the Nashville Breast Health Study (24). As a receptor tyrosine kinase, the FGFR2 protein is involved in cell signaling pathways (40). This protein is known to have a role in breast tissue development (41, 42) and has been shown to have nuclear localization in breast normal and tumor tissue (43).. Comparing our regional findings to results from ...
Over the past 30 years there has been a dramatic decline in the United States in stroke mortality for blacks and whites and for men and women. Despite this remarkable decline, the increased relative risk of stroke death in the coastal plain of the Southeastern United States appears to have persisted in approximately the same magnitude in the four race/sex groups from 1968 to 1991.. The societal impact of the Stroke Belt is staggering. Based on data from the Compressed Mortality File, there were 4255 stroke deaths in the 153 Stroke Belt counties in 1990 and an age-adjusted stroke mortality rate of 262/100 000. This represents a 43% excess over the age-adjusted stroke death rate of 183/100 000 in the remainder of the United States. If the stroke mortality rate for the remainder of the United States is applied to the 1.8 million residents of the Stroke Belt aged 45 years and older, the expected number of strokes in the region would be approximately 2972 (rather than the 4255 observed). Thus, there ...

Following Misra et al. (2012), we selected 65 stations (Fig. 1) across the five states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina) in the SEUS that had datasets from the National Weather Services Cooperative Observer station network program (COOP), the COOP data corrected for documented shifts in time of observation (COOP1), and the COOP data additionally corrected for documented changes in instrument (COOP2) for an overlapping period of 62 years from 1948 to 2009. It should be mentioned that there are 327 stations across these five states, but only 65 of these had the temperature records for the same overlapping period in all three datasets with missing data that did not stretch more than 3 years in a row. The missing data were linearly interpolated. The trends were computed on the seasonal means, and therefore, the filling of the missing data for such short time periods with linear interpolation did not have a significant impact. The COOP data are available from the NCDC ...
Below average temperatures are expected in parts of the south-central and southeastern U.S., while above-average temperatures are most likely in the western U.S., Alaska, Hawaii and New England, according to the U.S. Winter Outlook, issued by NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. Last years winter was exceptionally cold and snowy across most of the U.S., east of the Rockies. A repeat of this extreme pattern is unlikely this year, although the Outlook does favor below-average temperatures in the south-central and southeastern states. ...

University of Washington. In spite of considerable human development, the southeastern United States region could provide some of the Western Hemispheres more heavily used thoroughfares for mammals, birds and amphibians on their way to cooler environments in a warming world, according to new research led by the University of Washington. The region is among half a dozen areas that could experience heavier traffic compared with the average species-movement across the Western Hemisphere in response to a warming climate. The estimate in southeastern states, for example, is up to 2.5 times the average amount of movement across North and South America. Other areas that could see pronounced animal movements are northeastern North America, including around the Great Lakes and north into Canada; southeastern Brazil, home to both the species-rich Atlantic Forest and major cities such as Sao Paulo with its 11 million residents; and the Amazon Basin. The basin, stretching across seven South American ...
The 20th century cooling trend over the southeastern United States Portions of the southern and southeastern United States, primarily Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, have experienced century-long (1895-2007) downward air temperature trends that occur in all seasons. Superimposed on them are shifts in mean temperatures on decadal scales characterized by alternating warm (1930s-1940s, 1990s) and cold (1900s; 1960s-1970s) regimes. Regional atmospheric circulation and SST teleconnection indices, station-based cloud cover and soil moisture (Palmer drought severity index) data are used in stepwise multiple linear regression models. These models identify predictors linked to observed winter, summer, and annual Southeastern air temperature variability, the observed variance (r2) they explain, and the resulting prediction and residual time series. Long-term variations and trends in tropical Pacific sea temperatures, cloud cover, soil moisture and the North Atlantic and Arctic oscillations account for ...

In these states, the rates of obesity, smoking and high blood pressure tend to be higher than in other areas of the country, which might account for the greater risk for stroke and later thinking declines, Howard said.. Many of the factors that drain brain health are similar to those that raise the risk for stroke and heart disease, she explained.. For the study, Howards team collected data on nearly 11,500 people, average age 64, living in the Stroke Belt, and almost 9,000 similar people not living in the Stroke Belt.. None of the participants had a stroke or mental impairment when they entered the study. Screening tests were repeated annually over nine years.. The researchers found that people who spent their childhood outside the Stroke Belt were 24% less likely to develop thinking declines.. Also, people who spent some of their childhood elsewhere were 18% less likely to develop mental impairments.. Those who lived outside the Stroke Belt as young adults were 30% less likely to develop ...
Reproductive biology of the cobia, Rachycentron canadum, is described from four coastal areas in the southern United States. Samples were obtained from recreational fishermen between December 1995 and November 1997 from the southeastern United States (Morehead City, NC, to Cape Canaveral, FL), the eastern Gulf of Mexico (Ft. Myers to Crystal River, FL), the north-central Gulf of Mexico (Destin, FL, to Chandeleur Islands, LA) and the western Gulf of Mexico (Port Aransas, TX). Histological evidence of spawning occurred from April through September in all areas. Some female cobia (17-32%) throughout the Gulf of Mexico had spent or regressed ovaries by July. Gonadosomatic index peaked between May and July throughout the region. Ovaries of females from all areas contained both postovulatory follicles (POF) and oocytes in final oocyte maturation (FOM) during all months of the reproductive season. Batch fecundity was calculated by using three different methods: oocytes |700 μm were fixed in 1) Gilsons

INTRODUCTION. The common name blacklegged refers to their dark legs which are in contrast to the paler body and that of deer because the preferred adult host is the white-tailed deer; in the midwest, it is called the bear tick. This tick is of medical importance because it is an important vector of Lyme disease. Blacklegged ticks are found primarily in the northeastern, midwestern, and southeastern states in the United States, but extend into Mexico. In error, this tick was described in 1979 as the new species Ixodes dammini by Spielman, Clifford, Plesman & Corwin; this error was corrected by Olivier, Jr., et. al. in 1993.. RECOGNITION. Unengorged female about 118 (2.7 mm) long, male smaller (about 1/1612 mm). Body oval, dorsoventrally flattened (top to bottom), not hard-shelled. Color orangish brown except legs, mouthparts and scutum (dorsal shield just behind mouthparts) dark reddish brown but abdomen darker when engorged; male body reddish brown overall.

Very similar to the Black-capped Chickadee, this bird replaces it in the southeastern states. Living in milder climates, it has been reported to be less of a visitor to bird feeders, but it does come into suburban yards for sunflower seeds. Where the ranges of Black-capped and Carolina chickadees come together, they often interbreed. In these contact zones, they also can learn to imitate each others songs -- causing great confusion for birdwatchers.

Description: Vetch, which has become an important forage crop throughout the Southeastern States, needs protection from the same insect that works such havoc on corn and cotton. This corn earworm, or cotton bollworm, is the most serious pest that growers of vetch have to combat. The caterpillars eat both the foliage and the seed pods, and, if the infestation is heavy, make the crop practically worthless. Vetch intended for a hay crop generally escapes serious injury, as it is cut before the caterpillars are large enough to do much damage. It is recommended that a crop intended for seed be carefully watched and if the insects become numerous an insecticide be applied at once or the vetch cut for hay. Spraying, dusting, the use of poisoned-bran bait, and other control measures are discussed and summarized in this bulletin. -- p. 2 ...

Nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus) are naturally infected with Mycobacterium leprae and have been implicated in zoonotic transmission of leprosy. Early studies found this disease mainly in Texas and Louisiana, but armadillos in the southeastern United States appeared to be free of infection. We screened 645 armadillos from 8 locations in the southeastern United States not known to harbor enzootic leprosy for M. leprae DNA and antibodies. We found M. leprae-infected armadillos at each location, and 106 (16.4%) animals had serologic/PCR evidence of infection. Using single-nucleotide polymorphism variable number tandem repeat genotyping/genome sequencing, we detected M. leprae genotype 3I-2-v1 among 35 armadillos. Seven armadillos harbored a newly identified genotype (3I-2-v15). In comparison, 52 human patients from the same region were infected with 31 M. leprae types. However, 42.3% (22/52) of patients were infected with 1 of the 2 M. leprae genotype strains associated with armadillos. The

African Americans (AA) have a higher prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis (Tv) infection and a higher prostate (PC) risk. Past studies suggest an association between Tv seropositivity and PC, and therefore we prospectively investigated this association among AA men. Incident PC cases were individually matched to controls in a nested case-control study within the Southern Community Cohort Study (SCCS). Primary analysis included 296 PC cases and 497 race-matched controls. Levels of Tv antibody response were measured by ELISA in serum collected at baseline. Tv antibody response did not significantly differ between cases and controls overall or within AA participants (253 AA cases). There were no significant associations or trends between levels of Tv response and PC risk or the diagnosis of aggressive PC. We found no evidence of a prospective association between baseline Tv infection and PC risk in AA men. Tv infection in men may have substantial health implications in HIV transmission and reproductive
Globally, banana (Musa spp.) is considered a daily dietary staple food for millions of individuals. This fruit is a source of phytochemicals such as carotenoids and phenolic compounds, with health-promoting effects. There is limited information concerning the effect of ripening pattern involving banana peel and pulp bioactive compounds of diverse cultivars. In most studies bananas are assumed at the fully ripe stage to contain the highest phytochemicals. In addition, despite the great diversity of bananas, limited information is available concerning non-traditional underutilized non-Cavendish cultivars and the nutrient content of bananas cultivated within the continental United States. Thus, it is important to identify banana cultivars with significant levels of phytochemicals and encourage the production and consumption of them to take advantage of their health benefits. Accordingly, banana fruits of different genotypes, including Goldfinger (AAAB), Hua Moa (AAB), Kandarian (ABB), Pisang ...

The Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment Southeast (VORTEX-SE) Is a research program designed to understand how environmental factors characteristic of the southeastern United States affect the formation, intensity, structure, and path of tornadoes in this region. VORTEX-SE is also determining the best methods for communicating forecast uncertainty related to these events to the public, and evaluating public response. In many ways, VORTEX-SE represents a new approach to tornado research in general. Previous VORTEX projects were focused on Great Plains events, which by comparison with tornadoes in the southeastern United States, generally form under somewhat different meteorological conditions, display distinctive tornado climatology, and have dissimilar social elements in terms of tornado preparedness, awareness, and communications. In examining the distribution of tornadoes and tornado deaths in the U.S., Ashley (2007 Weather and Forecasting) found that the number of ...

The Alzheimers disease (AD) epidemic affects the entire country, but states like Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina are particularly hard-hit. People born in this region, known as the Deep South, have a 20-30% higher risk of developing AD or dementia caused by other factors. Through our studies, we are working to find ways to reduce or eliminate these disparities.. Alzheimers Disease in Black/African Americans. More than 20% of the U.S. Black/African American population lives in the Deep South. Risk of late-onset AD in Blacks is twice as high as in whites. This is especially evident in the Deep South. Social factors like education, income, and occupation are important to consider when examining this difference. Health conditions such as high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes, obesity, and vascular disease are more common in Blacks in this region. These conditions are also related to cognitive decline and risk of dementia and AD.. There also appear to be ...

Passion flower is a perennial creeping vine, native to the tropical and semi-tropical southern United States, Central and South America. The plant is now cultivated in various tropical and subtropical regions, including the southeastern United States, central America, and parts of Asia. Passion flower makes a spectacular garden ornamental, and many people plant passionflower to add beauty to a home garden. For commerce, passion flower is obtained from wild and cultivated plants, mainly from the United States, India, ...
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and is the leading cause of long term disability. Distinct geographic disparities in stroke mortality, with highest rates in the southeast United States including Arkansas, are known as the stroke belt. There the average stroke mortality is ≈20% to 40% higher than the rest of the nation. Stroke is the leading cause of serious long-term disability. Between 2012 and 2030, disability and medical costs related to stroke are projected to triple, from $71.6 billion to $184.1 billion, with the majority of the projected increase in costs arising from those 65 to 79 years of age ...
The Choctaw Hog is a breed of domestic pig historically used by Native Americans. They are now reduced in population to some hundred animals, most of them in the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy calls the Choctaw Hogs status critically rare and says it is a high conservation priority. The Choctaw descends from livestock brought to the Americas by Spaniards from the 16th century onwards. The Choctaw Hog was used not only by Native Americans but also by European settlers and a succession of other peoples in the Southeastern United States for over three hundred years. The Choctaw people and their livestock migrated from the Deep South to Oklahoma Territory in the early 19th century. The United States government forced the Five Civilized Tribes out of Mississippi and Alabama in 1830, and they too brought more hogs to Oklahoma. An Oklahoma Choctaw will from 1858 leaves the posthumous wish and desire that all the hogs running at the home place be gathered and ...
Rebounding to Category 4 hurricane classification, Matthew now has winds up to 140 miles per hour and has caused at least 28 deaths in three Caribbean countries. It is heading for the southeastern U.S., where four states-Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina-have issued a state of emergency and evacuation orders in coastal regions.. Matthew was a Category 4 hurricane through Tuesday, was downgraded to a Category 3 early on Wednesday, and has now returned to Category 4 strength today, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC).. Florida Gov. Rick Scott issued a warning on Thursday urging those in evacuation zones to leave immediately. Based on the current forecast, the heights of storm surge will be above ground. Waves will be crashing on roofs. Homes will be destroyed, he tweeted in both English and Spanish on Thursday morning.. Time is up, Hurricane Matthew is approaching Florida. If you are in an evacuation zone, leave now, he said in a statement. To everyone on ...

Principal Investigator(s): Rachel Royce, PhD, MPH 1; Nickolas DeLuca, PhD2 Project Dates: October 2003 - March 2008 Project Overview: The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions Division of Tuberculosis Elimination and RTI International are conducting a study, as a part of the Tuberculosis Epidemiologic Studies Consortium, to address the excess burden of tuberculosis (TB) among African Americans in the southeast. In the southeastern states in the United States (US), where African Americans have historically faced great social and economic disadvantages, the TB rate among African Americans is more than eight times the rate among whites. This difference is referred to as TB disparity. This multi-phase research project was developed to understand the individual, institutional, and community-level barriers and facilitators to TB control in African Americans in the southeastern region of the US. During the first phase of this study, qualitative and qualitative research methods were used to gain ...
As early as 1917, W.E.B. Du Bois observed that at least one quarter of a million African Americans had migrated to the North since 1910: here we see a social evolution working itself out before our eyes. The mass of the freedmen are changing rapidly the economic basis of their social development. What historians later would term the Great Migration occurred first between 1915 and 1930, represented by two great streams of black population. The first stream came from the southeastern states, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia, resettling in the major northeastern U.S. cities - New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. Baltimore, and Boston. A second migration came from the central Black Belt regions of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas, moving northward into new black urban neighborhoods in Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, and Cleveland. The racial demographics of urban America were fundamentally altered. By 1930, over 150,000 African Americans were living in New York City. Nearly two ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Assimilation of Web-Based Urgent Stroke Evaluation. T2 - A Qualitative Study of Two Networks. AU - Singh, Rajendra. AU - Mathiassen, Lars. AU - Switzer, Jeffrey A.. AU - Adams, Robert J.. AU - Singh, Rajendra. N1 - Funding Information: Based on purposive sampling [33], we organized this research as an exploratory, qualitative case study of 2 stroke networks in Georgia and South Carolina. Each network includes a hub-a comprehensive stroke center at the Georgia Regents University (GRU) and at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC)-and connected spokes (ie, rural hospitals supported by the hub). The two networks use the same technology (Remote Evaluation of Acute isCHemic stroke, REACH), they are of similar size and complexity (17 and 15 spokes, respectively), and they operate in similar contexts (providing services to EDs in rural hospitals in the southeast United States). This design allowed us to conduct cross-case comparisons [33,34] of how hub-related characteristics ...

see Black history Blacks were originally brought to America to serve as slaves in southeastern states on large-scale plantations. During the Civil War, all slaves were freed by Abraham Lincoln though the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth Amendment, and some state actions. During Reconstruction the Freedmen (freed slaves) gained citizenship and civil and political rights, including the right to marry, move about, and keep their wages. The system of sharecropping instituted after the end of the war left most Freedmen poor, while the Jim Crow policies of racial segregation that were implemented after the end of Reconstruction limited their civic and political rights. Blacks left the rural south in two waves, the first around 1915-20, the second coming after World War II when machinery ended the need for large numbers of people to pick cotton by hand. The migrants headed to the large cities of the North and West, and also in the South, moving from very poorly paid farm work to wage labor. ...
And so it goes across the Savannah economy: falling retail sales, fewer hotel bookings, a canceled convention, layoffs at Memorial Hospital, an announcement late this month that Great Dane Trailers, a major manufacturer, would soon close its factory here, and weakened tourism in a city that over the last 15 years has built an industry out of visits to its historic downtown. The tourists are still coming. With gasoline prices falling, theyve been driving here in growing numbers from Southeastern states, according to the Savannah Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. But tourists are no longer big spenders. Elizabeth Patterson said business at her cigar and novelty store on Bull Street, in the middle of the historic district, has slowed. She said her competitors had seen a slowdown as well.Her top seller once was a $4.75 Nicaraguan cigar, the Savannah Bulldog (also the name of her store). Cigars are still 50 percent of her revenue, which she says was $400,000 in 2007. But revenue is down 30 ...

Renown Urgent Care team prepares you to stay alert and safe this season and is available for medical assistance, 7 days a week at 11 locations across northern Nevada. In June, staffers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent a Health Advisory requesting that clinicians and caregivers watch for the respiratory syncytial virus, usually known as RSV, an infection that puts thousands of toddlers and senior citizens in the hospital each year with pneumonia and deep lung inflammation. According to the CDC, RSV results in roughly 58,000 hospitalizations and 100 to 500 deaths each year among children under five as well as 177,000 hospitalizations and 14,000 deaths among adults 65 and above. RSV was cropping up in 13 southern and southeastern states, the agency warned, and clinicians should test for the virus if kids showed up sneezing, wheezing, or with poor appetites and inflamed throats. Usually a winter infection, RSV is usually gone by June. Instead, this year, it is spreading-and has ...
Iva Juka, Copy Editor. Over 16 million acres have burned throughout the last three months in New South Wales and Victoria, Australia. The vicious fires initially began with the Gospers Mountain fire, which was stated to be the largest wildfire Australia has ever endured.. The blaze has scorched throughout at least two million acres. This has not only affected the residents, but it has devastated the wildlife in the affected areas. Professor Chris Dickman, an expert on Australian biodiversity at the University of Sydney released a statement explaining that almost half a billion (480 million) animals have been killed by the bush fires in Australia. If the animals were not directly killed by the fires, they would die from starvation due to their habitat being destroyed entirely. The Gospers Mountain fire is largely contained, but other fires are still burning within the southeastern states of New South Wales and Victoria.. What were seeing in Australia, in a completely different environment, are ...

For the past four years, drought has parched the soil of north Georgia farms, nearly drained Atlantas 38,000-acre reservoir, and left area lawns brown. Then in just eight days in September 2009, the regions weather took a turn that likely had residents asking if they were on a climate seesaw. As millions of Georgians watched and as many fled for higher ground, meteorological forces coalesced to deliver heavy rains and flooding not seen in the southeastern U.S. in more than 100 years, according to the National Weather Service. Millions of dollars of property were destroyed, and ten lives were lost. The flooding dominated local TV news and compelled the governor to declare a state of emergency across 17 counties. Even before the rains ended, research meteorologist, Marshall Shepherd a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Georgia, and colleagues began piecing together rainfall and soil moisture data from NASA satellites, Doppler radar, weather reports and ground-level rain ...

The rice water weevil, Lissorhoptrus oryzophilus, is the most harmful insect pest of rice in the United States, causing yield losses of up to 25 percent. Adults inflict damage by consuming leaf tissue, and the larvae feed on the roots of rice plants. A native of the southeastern U.S., the rice water weevil invaded Japan in 1976, Korea in 1980, China in 1988, and Italy in 2004. Luckily, rice growers now have a new resource for controlling it. An open-access article appearing in the Journal of Integrated Pest Management discusses the rice water weevils life history and invasion biology, as well as management strategies and future directions of research.. Authors Mohammad-Amir Aghaee and Larry D. Godfrey, both from the University of California, Davis, tell the story of the weevil since it was first identified as a pest in 1881 by C. V. Riley and L. O. Howard. They then discuss reasons why it has been able to spread so rapidly - up to 36 kilometers per year in some cases - which is partly because ...
The bacteria is endemic along the southeastern U.S. coast, but has also been found in the Chesapeake Bay, according to the study, published Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. The illness rarely occurs in the cooler waters of the Delaware Bay and Jersey Shore, but the researchers say it is becoming more frequent due to climate change.. Vibrio bacteria, as depicted by the CDC. CDC. The five patients infected in Delaware were all treated at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, New Jersey over the last two years. Before that, the hospital had seen only one case of severe Vibrio infection in eight years, Dr. Katherine Doktor, an infectious disease specialist at Cooper University Health Care, told CNN.. These cases serve as a warning that flesh-destroying bacterial infections are now occurring outside the traditional geographic boundaries, the authors of the study said. One of the five patients died.. It is important for physicians - who may have never seen this infection before in ...

Survival of bacterial and viral pathogens in swine effluent, cattle manure, and biosolids when applied to Southeastern U.S. soils [abstract]. AFRI Project Directors Meeting, Milwaukee, WI, July 30, 2011. Presentation Only. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: In the United States, greater than 100 million dry tons of manure and 7 million dry tons biosolids are produced on a yearly basis. This scale of residual waste production requires large swaths of land for disposal and often times have come under scrutiny as a result of this demand. Environmental and public-health concerns associated with waste management involve pathogen survival and potential transport following land application. Pathogen survival traits are not universal amongst strains within a species and are highly influenced by soil type, climate, and waste residual. Methods: The focus of this study was to determine the inactivation rates of common food-borne pathogens ...
To the editor: The recent article by Taylor and coauthors (1) shows that in decision analysis the decision depends on the data analyzed. Although existing data on isoniazid are imperfect, in the report of the study by Taylor and colleagues the information introduced into the decision analysis system was not the best available. Comstock (2) has pointed out in his accompanying editorial many of the studys deficiencies. In addition, I think the following three points deserve comment.. First, in defining tuberculosis incidence Taylor and associates use, in part, data generated in several surveys of Southeastern U.S. populations (3). Nontuberculous mycobacterial ...
The Brazilian Pepper tree - also known as the Florida Holly - is an invasive species from South America that has spread throughout Florida and the Southeastern U.S. Many Floridians hate it because it is a common source of contact dermatitis similar in nature to poison ivy.. Despite this mischievous aspect of the plant, immunologists have discovered it has incredible antibiotic properties. Amazonian native healers have used the plant for hundreds of years for its medicinal value. Now modern science is jumping on board.. It turns out the berries and leaves contain a variety of flavonoids and terpenoids - especially thymol, carvacrol and myrcenol - which have proven effective against super germs, namely E. coli and the dreaded multi-drug-resistant Staph aureus (MRSA).. The plant enzymes work by several mechanisms, one of which is to destabilize the germs plasma membrane, causing it to rupture. Two others work through gene repression in the bacteria. Specifically, the Brazilian Pepper represses ...
