Giant mosquitoes flourish in floodwaters that hurricanes leave behind

Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 By Michael Reiskind , Assistant Professor of Entomology, North Carolina State University, and first published on theconversation.com. After Hurricane Florence, reports started rolling in of “giant mosquito” sightings – and bitings – throughout North Carolina. What’s going on with these mega mosquitoes that can be as big as a quarter?As a mosquito biologist, I often get asked to identify a mosquito based upon someone’s verbal report of the little buggers. I usually do OK with an educated guess based on descriptions like “It had striped legs, and was brown” or “It looked kind of purple.”What I have always struggled with is when someone says “It was little” or “It was pretty big.” For the most part, size is not a good identifying feature of the common mosquitoes Americans encounter close to home.This is because you can grow relatively large mosquitoes or small ones just depending on the conditions where they grow up – what entomologists call their larval environment. If the larval environment has few other competing mosquitoes, or is rich in nutrients, or has a cool temperature, the result is larger adult mosquitoes.You’ll see these mosquitoes coming your way. Joanna Poe/Flickr, CC BY-SAThere are a couple of species of mosquitoes that are truly gigantic, though. If someone says they saw a big mosquito, and I follow up with “big for a mosquito, or too big to even be a mosquito?” and they say “too big to be a mosquito, but it was biting me,” then I know we truly have one of a couple species of “giant” mosquitoes.Under normal circumstances, these giant, biting mosquitoes – known locally here in North Carolina as “gallinippers” or scientifically as Psorophora ciliata or Psorophora howardi – are quite rare. They are two of about 175 species of mosquitoes we have in the United States. Their moment in the spotlight comes after major flooding events, like we had with Hurricane Florence. These mosquitoes can be as much as three times larger than their more typical cousins.The gallinippers belong to a genus of mosquitoes that specialize in responding to floods. Females produce lots of eggs, which they spread out around areas that might flood, such as wet meadows, floodplain forests or even agricultural land. Those eggs are resistant to desiccation – that is, they aren’t damaged by dry conditions – so they can wait around for a flood the following year, forming an “egg bank.” The eggs are fertilized as the female lays them, from sperm she’s stored during mating. In order to get the blood meals necessary to make many eggs, these mosquitoes are aggressive feeders on mammals, and maybe other vertebrates occasionally.But evolving to a giant size doesn’t seem necessary to carry out these tasks. Indeed, many other species in this genus are not giants; they’re more typically mosquito-sized. So what separates the gallinipper?One possibility is the fact that gallinippers, as larvae, prey on other mosquito larvae. Perhaps their size is an adaptation to consuming other floodwater mosquitoes, allowing them to more easily capture and consume smaller species? The more typical-sized mosquitoes that use floodwaters are not predators. Size may also allow them to produce many more eggs, which can also be an advantage when the floodwaters come.Psorophora ciliata feasting. Matthew Bertone, Author provided (No reuse)Gallinippers have a painful bite that is usually well noticed by human victims, so the large numbers that emerged after Florence have received lots of attention.While being bitten by a giant mosquito may not seem like a great thing, there are reasons to take heart. First, these mosquitoes likely get just one good blood meal in their lives, limiting their ability to transmit a pathogen. As far as entomologists know, they don’t transmit any pathogens to people. And since, as larvae, these giants eat other mosquitoes, maybe one big bite is worth 10 small ones? Finally, it’s a great post-hurricane brag to announce “I got bit by a giant freakin’ mosquito!”Other good news is that the adults likely don’t live more than a couple of weeks, so the great boom of mosquitoes from Florence is winding down. Of course, now it looks like Hurricane Michael may bring about another round of gallinippers. Winter does end the most immediate threat, but all those eggs are still out there, awaiting next year’s floodwaters.and TAGStheconversation.com Previous articleApopka Tractor Supply hosting pet treat tastingNext articleBiography of an Apopka icon: The life and times of Billie Dean coming in 2020 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment!

Apopka named one of the best small cities to start a…

first_img Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter From Go.Verizon.comAccording to a study published by Go.Verizon.com, Apopka is a great place to start a small business. Apopka made the list as the #50 ranked small city across the US. 20 Florida cities made its top 50 list, putting them in the top 17% across the nation.America has become the veritable poster child of the startup era. It’s hard to look at the surge of self-made billionaires across all industries in the US, with their humble startup beginnings, and not feel a certain amount of awe. Things around here show no sign of slowing down, and given that this is the “land of opportunity,” it’s unfair to crown only major metro areas across the country as the best places to find it.Though it is true that when it comes to places rich with business growth and opportunity, small cities don’t generally come first to mind. A painful number of small cities are constantly overshadowed in the media by big players like NYC, LA, Chicago, etc., despite offering better chances at business success. That’s why the team at Go.Verizon.com just released this 2019 report unveiling the best small cities to start a small business.But avoiding the chaos and competition of large cities and planting your roots in a quieter, yet equally industrious pocket of the country puts your business in a uniquely advantageous position. After some generous research and a bit of computing, Go.Verizon.com has found that the smaller the city, the more room there is to grow.According to the report, Apopka scored above average on mean income, which means they have affordable labor. Florida, in general, scored well for their tax score which positively affected both Apopka and Sanford. Apopka also scored well for having broadband access.Robert Agrusa, President of the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce, was pleased with Apopka’s ranking.“The Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce has been laser-focused on our new mission of serving the economic development, prosperity, and sustainability of our community and region through connectivity, leadership, education, and support,” he said. “Our partnership with the City of Apopka is stronger than ever and the Apopka area is a wonderful place to grow your business! By creating a pro-business environment that supports and champions local businesses and entrepreneurs, encourages economic development, business development and job growth, together we can make the Apopka area the most attractive place to live, work and raise a family!”See full list of cities hereData factors examinedSo how did these cities win the top spots? It’s all about the numbers. The Go.Verizon.com team gathered data from nearly 300 cities across the country, focusing on certain factors that would categorize them as “small” (sorry, no Silicon Valley on this list) without dipping below the mark to “town” status (no one-horse situations, either). These elements also indicated the financial climate of each city and an overview of its demographics. Such factors included:Population: According to the US census, the population of a city must fall between 50,000 and 75,000 people to be considered a “small city.” Most of the spots in the top ten hit the high end of the scale but still manage to balance out the urban stride with a more hometown vibe.Education: Or, more precisely, higher education. The team analyzed the percentage of the population over 25 years old who have received a bachelor’s degree or higher from an accredited university or college.Travel time to work: More specifically, the average total travel time it takes working individuals 16 years and older (who do not work at home) to reach work from their residences every day. This takes into account the time spent carpooling, waiting for public transportation, and navigating traffic.Income per capita: For this particular study, mo’ money = mo’ problems. To hit the small biz sweet spot, analysts took into account the average cumulative income of residents in each city. That number reflected the city’s workforce being paid fairly and labor costs still being manageable for employers.Broadband access: The internet is kind of important nowadays. In fact, it’s pretty crucial to most business operations. Data was collected based on the access each city has to internet, running at speeds of at least 10 Mbps for downloads and 1 Mbps for uploads.Loans per capita: New businesses can rarely get up off the ground without a business loan. It’s usually one of the first things checked off a startup’s to-do list. With this in mind, how easy is it to get a loan in your city?Tax scores: Typically, lower taxes provide a better environment in which to establish a new business. The Tax Foundation’s 2019 State Business Tax Climate Index was accessed and the tax-friendliness of each city was determined.

Instead, it pays homage to the beachside jetty, with a blackened timber-clad façade.Raw elements such as leather, concrete and brick connect the building to the nearby man-made sand dunes.

Baseball players find strength in faith

first_img Previous articleThe Skiff: May 11, 2017Next articleFrogs drop 2 of 3 at OU, clinch share of Big 12 title Carolina Olivares RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Student expected to launch sports betting app Linkedin Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ ReddIt As “Christian” is the central element in the TCU logo on the fronts of their jerseys, so some baseball players are finding their faith front and center when faced with adversity.TCU pitcher Mitchell Traver said he practices resiliency by putting, “Jesus at the center of [his] life and trusting in His plan to help keep things in perspective.”Last year, Traver suffered a from a back muscle strain that caused him to miss the first two months of the 2016 season. This year, he won the William Koehler Academic Achievement Award.The award honors a student-athlete who demonstrates immense determination and accomplishment amid conquering an uncommon obstacle. Traver said the award came as a surprise and there are still many things left that he wants to accomplish. He said he saw it as the Lord showing him that he was used more than he thought, even if he was not on the field as much as he would have liked.Another player who was forced off the field due to injury is second-year relief pitcher Dalton Brown. Brown said he uses prayer to thank God for the opportunity to glorify Him on the amazing platform of collegiate baseball.“The older you get the more you realize that the reason you play is not because you love it– it’s because you believe in Him,” Brown said.Second-year relief pitcher Dalton Brown pictured on the mound. Photo courtesy of Dalton Brown.Brown said injury is one of the greatest hardships an athlete can overcome– something he knows about firsthand following his injury during the preseason game Feb. 11. Brown said it was a “big set back” because he had to start over from square one and fight to get back to where he was. He was cleared March 17 for the game against Kansas University.In instances like these Brown said contemplating the word of God is helpful because He “speaks to a lot of instances in the Bible on the subject of hardships and lost faith.”During the recovery process, Bown spent time with Traver and found comfort in his advice as Traver told him to, “reflect back to God’s character and understand that He loves him more than anyone ever has and ever could.” Facebook Boschini pushes to change alert system company Carolina Olivares Facebook Individual safe after threatening to jump from Amon G.

She grew up in Houston, Texas so it’s safe to say you can hear her cheering on Houston sports team, EXCEPT the Texans. She throws up the X for the Dallas Cowboys. She can’t start her day without coffee and when she’s not reporting you can find her working out or spending time with friends. Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ At the age of nine Brown said he started to lose his faith after his father, a former baseball player at the University of Texas and member of the 1983 College World Series championship team, lost his leg in 2006 because of a life-threatening blood clot. As a child, Brown believed, “moms and dads were supposed to be invincible.” This made it difficult for him to grasp why God would hurt his father and his hero.Athletes’ faith may be tested many times throughout their careers; however, with prayer, their mindsets are not focused on their production but on how hard they play, said Brown.“It’s not about suppressing the butterflies,” Brown said. “It’s about making them fly in formation.”He said that the team’s mission is to honor its core covenants: Selfless, energy and excellence. The players achieve the theme of the year, “Root vs. Fruit,” by focusing on the little details with the belief that big things will take care of themselves.“You can’t do it alone,” said Traver.The Fellowship of Christian Athletes challenges coaches and student-athletes to use their powerful influence to make an impression on the world through Christ’s eyes. As a member of FCA, Traver said mentor Chauncey Franks helps push him through when things get tough, and other athletes– along with the organization– guide his growth as a young man.Earlier this school year, Traver spoke at Ignite, a weekly gathering of individuals at TCU that unite to worship God, teaching Psalm 73, which says God will not make everything perfect, but will change your heart.This message is one Traver said he took to heart when deciding his future. He said he received calls early in the draft but he knew undoubtedly that the Lord was calling him back to TCU.“I can make the decision out of fear that I won’t get picked again or make the decision out of faith to trust in God’s plan for my life,” Traver said.

In the report, Molly Boesel, Principal, Economist, Office of the Chief Economist at CoreLogic, notes that in August, four of the five states with delinquency rate increases also had increases in unemployment rates.“Job loss can trigger a loan delinquency, especially for families with limited savings,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “The rise in overall delinquency in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin coincided with a rise in state unemployment rates between August 2018 and August 2019.”The serious delinquency rate—defined as 90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure—was 1.3% in August 2019, down from 1.5% in August 2018. The serious delinquency rate for this August was below the average of 1.5% for the 2000–2006 pre-crisis period and far below the peak of 7.5% in February.Additionally, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Montana, New Hampshire, and Utah all saw increases in serious delinquency rates, or loans 90 days or more past due including loans in foreclosure.On a smaller scale, 47 metropolitan areas recorded small annual increases in overall delinquency rates in August. Some of the highest gains were in the Midwest and Southeast. Metros with the largest increases were Dubuque, Iowa (2.2 percentage points), Pine Bluff, Arkansas (1.1 percentage points), Goldsboro, North Carolina (0.6 percentage points) and Panama City, Florida (0.5 percentage points).The CoreLogic MarketPulse Report also identified how Amazon’s HQ2 search is impacting local housing. According to Deputy Chief Economist Ralph Ralph McLaughlin, after withdrew its intent to open in New York and focus on Crystal City, noting that in Virginia home markets, notably in and around Crystal City, home prices are rising much faster than last year.“While evidence is somewhat weak that the HQ2 announcement boosted the regional market, our zip code-level analysis shows a different story,” McLaughlin said. “Namely, that there is a correlation between proximity to the HQ2 site and the increase of home price appreciation over the past year. Of the top 10 zip codes with the largest increase in year-over-year growth rates, half are within a 5- mile distance of the HQ2 site and eight are within 10 miles.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Loss Mitigation, Market Studies, News The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: amazon Delinquency Home Prices Major Impacts on Delinquency Rates Nationwide About Author: Seth Welborn Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Subscribelast_img read more
