Outdoor Updates: June 2019 was the hottest June recorded on planet Earth

first_imgResearchers usually document about 4 or 5 super nests each year. In 2006, over 90 were documented. This year, two super nests were confirmed in May, a month earlier than the previous early identification, leading scientists to think that this year may see more super nests than ever before.  June 2019 was the hottest June recorded on planet Earth A heat wave in Europe caused extreme temperatures all over the continent. In France, the highest temperature in the country’s history was recorded (114 degrees F) and wildfires raged across Spain as temperatures topped 104 degrees F. Experts warn that climate change makes record-setting heat waves at least five times as likely to happen.  A fire at a Jim Beam bourbon warehouse is killing fish in the Kentucky River A recent blaze at a Jim Beam warehouse in Kentucky burned 45,000 barrels of bourbon. Firefighters from four counties responded and when the fire was out officials announced that the runoff from the firefighting efforts caused a 24-mile long alcohol plume in the Kentucky River.  The public is warned not to disturb a giant yellow jacket colony. Only a licensed pest removal company should remove a colony.center_img The plume, which is causing low oxygen levels in the water, is slowly traveling toward the Ohio River, where it is expected to dilute to safe levels. Thousands of fish have already died, and crews are working to aerate the water in an effort to increase the oxygen levels for the fish. Authorities say that the water is not harmful to people. As if we needed any proof that it is hot out there, a European satellite agency has announced that June 2019 had the hottest global temperatures for the month, making it the warmest June ever recorded on Earth. The previous warmest June was recorded in June 2016.  Perennial yellow jacket nests, aka “super nests,” are popping up around Alabama this summer. The nests contain 15,000- 18,000 aggressive wasps with multiple queens and can grow to the size of a Volkswagen Beetle. Entomologists believe that warm winter weather and abundant food supply have allowed some colonies to survive the winter and enter spring in much larger numbers that normal. Usually, the colony’s workers do not survive the cold winter weather, leaving the queen to leave and form a new colony. Warm winters in Alabama are contributing to “super nests” of waspslast_img read more

Walcott will be big miss – Parlour

first_img “That’s another striker. After losing Bendtner, Giroud is injured, Walcott – who can play up front – he’s injured now. “I’m sure Arsene Wenger now says to the board or whoever is involved in the transfer policy: ‘we definitely need at least one or maybe two strikers to come into the club’.” Walcott’s Arsenal team-mate Aaron Ramsey was quick to offer his condolences. “Gutted for Theo, he’ll come back stronger after this. Been fantastic for us so far this season. Have a speedy recovery mate,” the Welshman wrote on Twitter. Former Arsenal full-back Nigel Winterburn believes Walcott’s absence from the World Cup will give England manager Roy Hodgson a headache. “We’ve got players that can play on that right-hand side but the problem is you want all your top players,” Winterburn told Sky Sports News. “You want players that can change a game, individually and collectively. “A lot of people talk about Theo Walcott, saying ‘he can’t do this, he can’t do that’. But his pace frightens defenders and his finishing is dramatically improved over the last couple of seasons. “He will be a big, big loss to England.” Unlike Parlour, Winterburn believes Arsenal manager Wenger will not be in any rush to strengthen his striking options. “For me they need a recognised centre-forward to compliment Giroud if he picked up an injury or he had a loss of form,” he added. “I don’t think, because Theo’s out, that Arsene Wenger will naturally go into the transfer market. “If he can find a centre-forward that plays in the Barclays Premier League or if he can find someone who he thinks can really complement the squad, then he would go into the transfer market and get that player but I don’t think Arsene Wenger tends to panic buy.” Walcott’s Arsenal team-mates Mikel Arteta and Kieran Gibbs also tweeted their support. Arteta, @m8arteta, wrote: “So sad for #Walcott , i know what is like! We will support you till u get back! U will be badly missed!” Gibbs, @KieranGibbs, added: “Gutted for Theo…get well soon mate. #AFC” Former Arsenal and England midfielder Ray Parlour believes Theo Walcott will be distraught after seeing his World Cup dream ended by a knee injury. The forward will now be forced to miss a third finals and Parlour, who himself never took part in a major international tournament, feels it will be a massive blow to both player and country. “What a really big injury this is for Arsenal and England because I’m sure Theo would have been a starter for England in Brazil,” he told Sky Sports News. “And it must be a massive blow for himself because he’s playing in a very good team at the moment, top of the league, and looking forward to Brazil. “He must be absolutely distraught about the extent of the injury.” Parlour added: “He’ll be absolutely distraught losing the rest of the season and obviously missing the World Cup which is the best tournament to ever play in.” The news will be desperately disappointing for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who may be forced to bolster his options in the January transfer window as a result of his striker shortage. Walcott was given a rare outing up front against Spurs, with Olivier Giroud ruled out due to illness and Nicklas Bendtner expected to miss all of January with his ankle problem picked up when scoring a late goal in the 2-0 win over Cardiff on New Year’s Day. “He’s a very important player for Arsenal this season and Arsene Wenger will be looking at it,” added Parlour. Press Association The 24-year-old was carried off during the Gunners’ 2-0 FA Cup win over Tottenham on Saturday and it has since been revealed that he will miss six months due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his left knee. Walcott went to the 2006 World Cup but failed to make an appearance and was omitted from the 2010 squad for South Africa. last_img read more

#HealthFeature: How Often Should You Floss?

first_imgPLANTATION, Florida – You know that flossing is good for your teeth and gums, but are you sure you’re flossing as often as you should? And are you doing it correctly? Flossing can feel like an annoying chore, yet this essential task can make all the difference to your dental health. Here’s everything you need to know to establish a solid flossing routine.How Often Should You Floss?Brushing your teeth twice per day is an effective way to clean the visible surfaces of your teeth, but what about the hard-to-reach places in between your teeth and the spot where your teeth meet the gums? Flossing cleans between your teeth and along your gumline. If plaque isn’t removed from these areas, the sticky deposit builds up and eventually hardens. The resulting substance is called tartar or calculus, and it can lead to gum disease. It is recommended that you floss at least once per day to remove plaque, bacteria and food debris and help prevent cavities and gum disease.Ideal Flossing TechniqueLearning to floss your teeth takes a bit of practice, but it’s usually easy once you know how. It is suggested that you break off a piece of floss about 18 inches long and winding most of the piece around the middle finger of one hand. Then, wind the remaining floss around the middle finger of your other hand, leaving a strand between your hands.Grip the floss between your index fingers and thumbs of both hands, and then slide the strand between two of your teeth. Move the floss down or up until it reaches the gumline, and then curve it and gently slip it under the gum next to one tooth. Clean under the gum of the adjoining tooth in the same way. To clean the surfaces between the teeth, move the floss upward and downward tightly against your tooth.Slide the floss out and unwind a fresh section from the middle finger that holds the most floss, taking up the slack by winding it around the middle finger of your other hand. Floss between all your teeth, top and bottom, unwinding a clean piece of floss for each new space between teeth.When Is the Best Time to Floss?The most convenient time to floss is when you brush your teeth, either in the morning or the evening. But is it better to floss before brushing or afterward? According to a done, flossing first and then brushing is more effective at removing plaque between the teeth and at maintaining the concentration of fluoride on the tooth enamel.Ultimately, though, the best time to floss is the time that your schedule allows for it. So be sure to clear out a small block of time in your daily routine for this essential practice.Alternatives to Dental FlossSometimes, getting the hang of using dental floss is a struggle. If you find it difficult to use traditional floss, try waxed floss, which slips between your teeth more easily, or try alternative interdental cleaners. These alternatives include pre-threaded flossers, dental picks, tiny brushes you can slide between your teeth and wooden plaque removers. You may also have seen powered water flossers at the drugstore. These devices work by firing a jet of water between the teeth. Water picks are effective at removing food debris and reducing mouth bacteria below the gumline, but they might not be as effective at removing plaque.If you have any problems, your dentist or dental hygienist can give you tips or suggest an alternative flossing device that will work for you.Dr Sharon Robinson, DDS, owns and operates the Dental Place in Plantation, Florida, with a second office – the Dental Place Cosmetix Spa in Kingston, Jamaica.
