While under anesthesia, feral cats are also vaccinated and ear-tipped – a small part of the cat’s left ear is removed – to indicate sterilization.Feral cats are free-roaming cats that are not socialized to people. PHS says that left unaltered, these cats could produce large numbers of kittens each spring and summer, inundating local animal shelters.“Female cats can have as many as three litters a year, and kittens can breed as young as four months old,” says Steve McNall, president and Chief Executive Officer of PHS and SPCA. “Most people don’t want to see the cats they’re feeding get pregnant over and over again, so our National Feral Cat Day ‘TNR-a-thon’ will serve as a gentle reminder to caretakers of free-roaming cat colonies to catch and sterilize their cats.”SNiP, the PHS low-cost public spay and neuter clinic, expects to book 20 feral cat surgeries each day. A limited number of TNR appointments are also available weekly, Tuesday through Friday.TNR appointments at the SNiP Clinic include free spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations for FVRCP and rabies, and ear-tipping for feral cats in the PHS cities – Pasadena, Arcadia, Bradbury, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Monrovia, South Pasadena, San Marino and Sierra Madre.Additional services such as FeLV/FIV testing, flea treatment and microchipping are available upon request for an additional cost. A small inventory of humane traps are also available to rent for a deposit of $55, which is fully refunded upon return of the traps.TNR is by appointment only.

With no new deaths reported, the city’s death toll remained at 102.While senior citizens, the elderly and nursing-home patients initially drove the surge in infections, the novel coronavirus has increasingly found a foothold in the population under 40 in recent weeks, according to city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian.“Our median age for cases is now 50 years old,” she said.As of Monday, the most recent date demographic information was available, 584 known COVID-19 cases affected people between 18 and 40 years old, surpassing cases among those 65 and older, representing 565 infections.Health officials suspected the spread was largely due to people rushing to get back to their usual activities too soon, paying insufficient attention to social-distancing protocols.Beaches are seen crowded with visitors each weekend, Derderian said. Large private gatherings, held against the advice of public health officials, continue to empower the virus’ spread.“The mindset needs to change,” she said.Huntington Hospital was treating 59 COVID-19 patients as of Tuesday, according to hospital data.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Public Health announced 2,741 new detected infections and 50 new deaths Tuesday.Fifty-seven percent of the new cases involved people under 41 years old, the agency said in a written statement.“This continues to confirm younger people are driving new infections and spread of COVID-19,” the statement said.And while younger people are less likely to die from COVID-19, they can easily spread the virus to more vulnerable people, officials warned.“The tragedy of what we are witnessing is that many of our younger residents are interacting with each other and not adhering to the recommended prevention measures, while our older residents continue to experience the results of this increased spread with the worst health outcomes, including death,” L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said.“People over the age of 65 years old account for 11 percent of all cases but account for nearly 75 percent of all deaths. Our behaviors, including the wearing of face coverings and the adherence of physical distancing — simple actions of kindness and caring — can protect those we love.”L.A. County has recorded 161,672 cases of COVID-19 and 4,154 deaths since the start of the pandemic.With just under 1.56 million coronavirus tests administered, the county’s overall positivity rate reached 9.6 percent, officials said.County health officials said 2,218 people were hospitalized due to COVID-19 on Tuesday, with 26 percent of them in intensive care units and 18 percent being treated on ventilators.

Boy, 11, fatally shoots grandmother who told him to clean his room: Officials

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz.) — An 11-year-old boy shot and killed his grandmother and took his own life in their Arizona home after he was told to clean his room, authorities said.The violent incident occurred Saturday evening in Litchfield Park, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix, and was witnessed by the child’s grandfather, whose gun was used in the tragedy, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.The shooting occurred about 5 p.m. Saturday after the boy’s grandparents told him to clean his room, sheriff’s officials said.The grandfather, whose name was not released, told deputies that the boy was “being stubborn” about cleaning his room after being repeatedly asked to do so throughout the day on Saturday, sheriff’s officials told ABC affiliate station KNXV-TV in Phoenix.The grandmother was identified as 65-year-old Yvonne Woodard.Authorities said the child, whose name was not immediately released, lived with his grandparents, who had full custody of him, officials told KNXV.Woodard and her husband were sitting on a couch watching TV when the boy allegedly came up behind them and shot the grandmother in the back of the head, officials said.Investigators said the boy used the grandfather’s gun to shoot his grandmother and kill himself. It was not immediately disclosed how the child obtained the weapon.Following the shooting, the boy ran from the room and the grandfather briefly chased him before returning to try to aid his wife and call 911, sheriff’s officials said. As the grandfather was rendering aid to his wife, he heard a gunshot and found his grandson dead from a self-inflicted bullet wound, according to officials.“In the preliminary stages of this investigation there had been no previous signs that the grandson might harm someone or himself and there was no cause for concern prior to this event,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.Neighbors also said they never noticed any trouble between the grandparents and their grandson.“I can’t even fathom what he’s feeling and what their other family members are feeling,” a neighbor told KNXV of the grandfather. “It breaks my heart that they have to go through this. Life is fleeting at times and I just kept thinking was he one of the little trick-or-treaters that knocked on my door.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Plankton community structure south and west of South Georgia (Southern Ocean): links with production and physical forcing

first_imgDuring late December 2004 and early January 2005 the plankton community to the south and west of South Georgia was investigated. Satellite imagery had shown the surface expression of a bloom over the southern shelf I month prior to the cruise, although by the time of sampling a well-defined sub-surface chl-a maximum was evident at 26 of the 57 stations located mainly at the western end of the southern shelf (and the bloom was declining). Nonetheless, integrated chl-a was still greater over the shelf than elsewhere (18-362 mg m(-2)). Macronutrient distributions essentially mirrored the distribution of chl-a biomass, with depletion greatest in the on-shelf waters at the western end of South Georgia, where the most intense surface bloom had occurred during the preceding November. Nearest neighbour clustering of microplankton and mesozooplankton data revealed the presence of two major station groups within each analysis with broadly congruent distributions. Within the microplankton analysis a southern and western shelf grouping of 18 stations was dominated by Corethron spp., Eucampia antarctica and Thalassiothrix spp. This group corresponded spatially to a shelf zooplankton grouping (12 of the 18 stations in both groups in common) in which mesozooplankton abundance was greatest. Here small copepods such as Oithona spp. and the neritic clausocalaniid Drepanopus forcipatus dominated, along with the thecate pteropod Limacina helicina, appendicularians and calanoid copepod naupliar stages. Acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) measurements indicated that water flow over the shelf was low and variable (< 15 cm s(-1)). In contrast the largest station groups in both ordinations were distributed along the southern shelf-break and further off-shelf in water flowing rapidly (up to 55 cm s(-1)) to the southeast. Nitzschia spp., Pseudonitzschia spp., and Fragilariopsis kerguelensis were abundant here, and the zooplankton, in addition to Oithona spp., was characterized by Metridia spp., Ctenocalanus spp., Oncaea spp., and the polychaete Pelagobia longicirrata. A third group of 13 stations disclosed by the mesoplankton ordination was confined to the north and west and generally comprised outer shelf stations in deeper waters. Here zooplankton abundance was less than in the adjacent major station groupings, although Calanus simillimus was considerably more abundant than in other groups. Relationships of both micro- and zooplankton ordinations with environmental variables were modest (Spearman rank correlation, rho w = 0.49-0.59), albeit complex, with interactions likely to have occurred over different timescales. High levels of ammonium over the shelf, probably resulting from microbial breakdown and zooplankton excretion, contributed most to explaining both ordinations, along with the Si(OH)(4):NO3 deficit ratio, a measure of past nutrient use. Model output from Ocean Circulation and Climate Advanced Modelling (OCCAM) supported ADCP-derived flow measurements. Specifically, release of particles along a transect to the southwest suggested there was an extended residence time (in excess of 3 months) over the southern shelf and a slow but significant northwards transport into the Georgia Basin. The spatial extent of the shelf and the current speed and direction implied that in situ production was locally important and had the potential to contribute significantly to downstream ecosystems.

Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim will coach team on Saturday

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPhoto by Allen Kee / ESPN Images(SYRACUSE, N.Y.) — Syracuse head basketball coach Jim Boeheim will return to the sideline on Saturday for his team’s game against Duke, three days after he was involved in a fatal traffic accident.University athletic director John Wildhack announced the news Friday.“The Jimenez family has suffered a tremendous loss,” he wrote. “Our community is shaken. The Boeheim family is heartbroken over what happened, as we all are.”Wildhack explained that “Coach Boeheim’s players gain strength from him, just as he gains strength from his players. Our entire community gains strength from each other. With this in mind, and after thoughtful considerations, I have respectfully decided that Coach Boeheim will resume his coaching duties later today and will coach in tomorrow night’s game against Duke.”Boeheim met with the team on Thursday, but did not participate in the team’s practice session. Following the team’s Wednesday night win over Louisville, Boeheim was driving home from a restaurant when he struck and killed a man walking along an interstate highway. Accident reports say Boeheim was trying to avoid hitting a disabled vehicle that had lost control and hit a guardrail. Jorge Jimenez, 51, was a passenger in that vehicle.Sobriety tests for Boeheim and the driver of the second vehicle were negative. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Ocean City OKs Teachers Contract But Offers No Detail

first_imgOcean City High SchoolThe Ocean City Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday night to approve a new three-year contract with teachers. But the approval came with no discussion and no public disclosure of the terms of the contract.Personnel costs account for more than $31 million of Ocean City’s $40 million school budget, and the median salary of faculty members exceeded $90,000 (compared to a statewide median of $63,851) when the district negotiated its last contract, according to the state Department of Education school report cards for 2010-2011. Teacher salaries are the single biggest factor in determining school taxes paid by Ocean City property owners.After Wednesday’s meeting, Board President Joe Clark said a board attorney would e-mail details of the contract to reporters on Thursday (check back here for updates).Contract negotiations are confidential and discussed by the board only in executive sessions that are closed to the public. But with both the Ocean City Education Association (teachers’ union) and Ocean City Board of Education ratifying the new agreement, the new contract is now public record.The new agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2014 (retroactively) through June 30, 2017.The last teachers’ contract, in effect from July 2011 through June 2014, called for 1.99 percent annual salary increases for teachers and eliminated two separate longevity “step” increases effective only for new employees.Financial summaries are typically provided to the board and the public by the school business administrator, but Business Administrator Pasquale “Pat” Yacovelli had resigned after working only nine months in Ocean City and did not attend Wednesday’s meeting.Yacovelli was hired at a $137,500 annual salary with additional shared services stipends of $3,500 for the Corbin City School District and $10,000 for the Sea Isle City School District. He started work in the district in December 2013, and is reportedly now working in the Buena Regional School District.The board voted Wednesday to accept Yacovelli’s resignation effective Oct. 7. They also approved a professional services contract with Terrence Crowley to provide business office/board secretary services from Sept. 24 through Dec. 31 at $60 per hour, not to exceed 35 hours per week.Crowley is a retired Cape May County executive superintendent of schools. He worked during Wednesday’s meeting.“It will be good to get back to where things actually happen,” Crowley said of returning to work closer to students and teachers.last_img read more
