Poison in the Garden

first_img* Remove mushrooms from your yard and securely dispose of them. “Their fecal matter may contain organisms, such as roundworms, that might infecthumans,” he said. “These organisms can get on the leaves or fruit of plants. And if thefruits aren’t washed thoroughly, the organisms may be eaten and cause health problems.” The Georgia Poison Center recommends you: It’s fun to include children in gardening, so don’t let the risk persuade you to keep themout. Just take precautions. Symptoms of plant poisoning in children may include skin irritation, vomiting, diarrheaand, in severe cases, delirium and death. “You see very few potato seed pods in Georgia,” McLaurin said. “They look like smalltomatoes, but they’re not for eating.” The pods contain alkaloids that can make you sick. For the same reason, never use dog or cat fecal matter in a compost pile. “Tomato leaves and stems may cause upset stomach,” said Wayne McLaurin, ahorticulturist with the University of Georgia Extension Service. To learn more about backyard garden safety, contact your county office of the UGAExtension Service. Or call the Georgia Poison Center at 1-800-282-5846 and request “TheSafe and Sorry of Common Plants.” McLaurin feels a home garden is the perfect place to teach children where their food reallycomes from. Pets, on the other hand, have no place in the garden. “Kids will trample plants, pick unripe fruit and become a problem in general unless youteach them the proper way to conduct themselves in the garden,” McLaurin said. “Teachthem the right way first. And try to make gardening a pleasant experience, as well as alearning experience.” * Keep a bottle of syrup of ipecac on hand to induce vomiting if necessary. Use syrup ofipecac only on the advice of the Poison Center or your doctor. * Become familiar with first aid for plant poisoning. Remove any part of the plant thathasn’t been swallowed, and call the Poison Center immediately. “Pets should be kept out of the garden for obvious reasons,” McLaurin said. “They digand make nuisances of themselves.” Remember, too, to keep chemicals away from children in the garden. And keep childrenand pets out of the garden if you recently sprayed fertilizer, herbicides or pesticides. “Most poisoning from plants comes from rubbing up against the plant, not from actuallyeating it,” McLaurin said. * Don’t eat wild plants or mushrooms. Teach your children never to put leaves, stems,flowers, nuts, berries or seeds from any plant into their mouths. According to the Georgia Poison Center, indoor and outdoor plants are among the mostcommon causes of poisonings in children. Plants can cause severe injury and even death ifswallowed by humans or animals. * Label each plant and keep a list of your plants on hand so babysitters can have access tothe list in an emergency. When we think of poison plants in the landscape, poison ivy and poison oak are first onthe list. But it’s a long list that includes favorite flowers and even tomato vines. Common landscape plants that can harm children and pets include azaleas, boxwoods,English ivy, foxglove, hyacinths and wisteria. So can other vegetable plant parts, such as pepper stems and the potato seed pods thatform on the top of the potato plant after blooming. * Know the names of all plants in and around your home. Learn to recognize them bysight and name. An even greater danger is what they can leave behind.last_img read more

Italy coronavirus deaths jump to 52, cases climb above 2,000

first_imgThe death toll from coronavirus in Italy jumped to 52 on Monday from 34 the day before and the total number of confirmed cases in Europe’s worst affected country climbed past the 2,000 mark.The increase in deaths was the largest since the outbreak surfaced 10 days ago in the wealthy northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto. Lombardy, around Italy’s financial capital Milan, is by far with hardest hit, with 38 casualties.The virus has since spread south but the vast majority of cases remain centered on the original hotspots, with the addition of Emilia Romagna, another affluent region which borders on both Lombardy and Veneto and now has more cases than Veneto. “All those who have died (in Lombardy) are people over 65 with underlying health conditions, especially cardiovascular problems,” said Giulio Gallera, the region’s councilor responsible for welfare policy.In a worrying development, a policeman and a fireman based in Rome have also tested positive, authorities said, raising the risk of the virus spreading in the Italian capital.Cases in Rome, Italy’s largest city with 3 million people, had previously been limited to a Chinese couple on holiday and an Italian repatriated from the Chinese city of Wuhan – where the outbreak originated late last year – on a special flight and hospitalized. All three recovered.On Monday the Spallanzani infectious diseases hospital where the policeman was staying announced that his wife, two children and sister-in-law were also infected.The school attended by his son, in the nearby town of Pomezia, was closed and lessons were suspended in the university faculty at Rome’s main Sapienza university, attended by his other son.Economic hitThe coronavirus is taking a heavy toll on Italy’s economy, which was already teetering on the verge of recession before the outbreak, with sectors from manufacturing to tourism hit by a plunge in orders.Several international airlines including Lufthansa Delta Airlines and countries such as the Czech Republic have reduced or suspended flights to Italian cities.Milan cathedral reopened to the public on Monday but schools and universities remain closed and many companies told staff to work from home.The top of the UniCredit skyscraper in Milan was lit in red, white and green, the colors of the Italian flag, in a sign of solidarity with people hit by the virus.National statistics bureau ISTAT reported on Monday that the 2019 budget deficit came in at 1.6% of national output, the smallest fiscal gap for 12 years.The much-lower-than-expected reading potentially gives the coalition of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the center-left Democratic Party more leeway to spend and borrow this year – good news with coronavirus costs soaring.Economy Minister Roberto Gualtieri announced on Sunday the cabinet would this week approve 3.6 billion euros (US$3.5 billion) of measures to help companies.An aid package worth 900 million euros was unveiled on Friday for the worst-impacted zones. In total, 2,036 people have tested positive in Italy, up from 1,694 on Sunday. Of these, 149 have recovered, the civil protection agency said.”What is comforting is that 50% of the 258 people who tested positive [in the last 24 hours] have no symptoms or are being looked after at home,” Angelo Borrelli, head of the agency, told reporters.In total, Italy has tested 23,345 people for the disease.The Lombardy regional government urged people over the age of 65 to remain at home, as data showed they were by far the most vulnerable to the highly contagious illness.center_img Topics :last_img read more

WATCH: Vin Scully, Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Yeager move crowd during Game 2 first pitch

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error An online petition begging for a retired Vin Scully to participate in Fox’s broadcast of the World Series garnered more than 6,000 signatures. They didn’t get their wish, but a ceremony on the field prior to Game 2 came close.With a microphone in hand, Scully narrated his efforts as he walked to the pitcher’s mound at Dodger Stadium, ostensibly to deliver the ceremonial first pitch.“You know what I’m thinking right now,” Scully said as he walked, “somewhere up in heaven Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Gil Hodges are laughing their heads off: Look who’s throwing out the first ball at the World Series.”Only Scully, who turns 90 in November, didn’t throw the ball. He rocked into a windup, then stopped and said he injured his rotator cuff (wink, wink). Umpires for years would tip their caps to Vin Scully before games. All of the WS umpires made a line for Scully as he came off the mound— Erik Boland (@eboland11) October 26, 2017 So Scully called for a left-hander, and former Dodgers pitcher Fernando Valenzuela emerged from the dugout – to the delight of the crowd. It was Valenzuela, now a member of the Dodgers’ Spanish-language broadcast team, who threw the pitch to a former Dodgers catcher, 1981 World Series co-MVP Steve Yeager.The televised ceremony concluded a long pregame ceremony that included Brad Paisley singing the National Anthem and an eardrum-rattling flyover.— J.P.
