Living Memories

first_imgEach year more than 40 million Americans buy Christmas trees. Before the new year, most of those family memories are chipped into mulch or discarded. Why not make your memories last a lifetime by buying and then planting a living Christmas tree? “Christmas trees decorate our homes at the holidays. But we can use them to decorate our landscapes, beautify our parks or dress up our school yards year-round,” said Walter Reeves, a horticulture educator with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Kids can make it a project for their local neighborhood or school,” Reeves said. “They can have fun learning about native trees, the environment and how to plant trees.” One Georgia group, The Society for Living Christmas Trees, has already made this a yearly tradition. “The Society was formed by families who wanted to contribute to their community and develop a unique family tradition,” Reeves said. The first step in starting this tradition is knowing what type of tree to buy. The Society offers these tips: Buy trees that are native to your area. You must have trees that can survive in our climate. The smaller the tree, the better. Trees that are too large are hard to move. They’re also easy to damage and generally aren’t as healthy as smaller trees. Buy healthy trees. If you tree has a root ball, make sure it’s firm and compact, not loose or soft. Look for a tree with rich green color and springy branches. Make sure the root ball is big enough to support the tree. The American Nursery Association suggests that the root ball should be 8 inches across for every inch of diameter of the trunk. Transport and handle with great care. Always lift the tree by the root ball, not by the trunk. “You don’t want to keep the tree inside for more than 10 days or the tree will think it’s warm weather,” Reeves said. “When you move it outside, the cold will shock it.” Keep the tree in a large container filled with pine bark or saw dust. Stir the filler and make a basin for the root ball. Place a second waterproof liner under the container to protect the floor from leaks. Two cups of water every other day will replenish moisture lost when you move it inside. Or place a handful of ice cubes on the root ball. As they melt, they will water the tree. It’s helpful, too, to spray the branches of your tree with a light mist of water every other day. Be sure to unplug all decorative electrical lights or fixtures while watering your tree. Avoid extreme temperature changes. Just like people, trees don’t like going quickly from cold to hot or vice-versa. Move your tree into a garage or utility room for a few days first, then into your house. “Moving it in is just half the battle,” Reeves said. “Moving it back out is the real challenge.” Move the tree with care. Select the place that’s best for the tree and will contribute the most to your landscape or the community. The SLCT recommends calling local organizations that have beautification projects and need trees. Or organize your house of worship, community organization or school to beautify an area in the community. It’s an easy way to create an instant forest. To learn more about how to plant a living tree, contact your UGA Extension Service county office.

BP: Record Drop in Global Coal Consumption in 2015

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Yukako Ono for the Financial Times:Global coal consumption dropped 1.8 per cent in 2015, its largest fall on record, according to BP, as demand increasingly shifts to greener fuels. Coal was the only fuel that lost global market share in the power market although it remained the second largest with 29.2 per cent, the lowest share since 2005.The net decline in coal consumption was due to economic growth slowdowns in the US and China where production fell too, BP said.BP said in its statistical review released today that the shift is helping carbon emission reduction:Sluggish demand growth together with the shift in the energy mix away from coal meant that the growth in carbon emissions from energy consumption stalled in 2015. This encouraging development represented the slowest growth in emissions in nearly a quarter of a century (aside from immediately following the financial crisis).Carbon emissions increased by just 0.1 per cent in 2015, BP noted.Full article: Global coal demand saw record fall last year — BP BP: Record Drop in Global Coal Consumption in 2015last_img read more

Talented soccer star (14) offered €31,500 after fall at school

first_imgCOURTS: A talented soccer player has been offered €31,500 in compensation, for injuries he sustained at an accident in primary school in 2010.The incident occurred at St Mary’s National School, Ramelton on May 4th, 2012, when the boy was just 10 years of age. Barrister Fiona Crawford told Letterkenny Circuit Court this morning that the boy suffered fractures to both elbows during the incident.“My client was in 4th class at St Mary’s National School at the time of the accident, and he was ten years of age.“He was playing on a grassy area that had a very steep embankment, children were allowed to play in this unguarded area – and they were also unsupervised at the time.“Unfortunately he fell and landed directly onto his elbows suffering fractures to both, he was in plaster cast for six weeks, and also was off school for two weeks.“A four-metre fence has since been erected following the accident.”The court heard how the boy has had on-going issues with his handwriting since the accident, and is still being prescribed medication for pain in his elbows.Mrs Crawford added, “He has issues with his handwriting, and struggles when having to write long English essays at Secondary school – he also has discomfort when playing his XBOX and when he goes cycling.“He’s a extremely talented footballer, and plays for the Donegal Schoolboys League side, but he gets pain in his elbows when playing in cold weather, and has to wear warm clothing to alleviate this.“He is still being prescribed medication for pain in his elbows four years after the accident occurred.”Reports were then read out from a number of healthcare professionals, who confirmed that the plaintiff had suffered fractures to both elbows.There was confirmation from his GP, that he was still being prescribed medication for the pain in his elbows.One healthcare professional said that despite the fractures he suffered he was at no risk of getting arthritis due to it.Barrister Fiona Crawford said it was her and the opinion of counsel that the amount tendered for general damages be €31,500.Judge John O’Hagan agreed that the amount being tendered was fair, however, he then spoke to the boy and his mother.Judge O’Hagan told the court, “She isn’t altogether happy with the offer due to the fact that there is on-going medication still being prescribed and that he is still in pain.“I’m going to suggest these reports be sent to senior counsel, but what has already been offered is in the bank so to say, I’ll adjourn the case until next Thursday.”Talented soccer star (14) offered €31,500 after fall at school was last modified: July 20th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Barrister Fiona CrawfordClaimcompensationcourtsElbowsFracturenewsPainlast_img read more
