Massive Wasp Super Nests Are Popping Up All Over Alabama

first_img Watch: Man Uses Roman Candle to Kill Hornets, Sets Roof on FireLas Vegas Pizzeria Offers ‘Grasshopper Pie’ Amid Insect Inva… Stay on target Officials are warning Alabama residents about massive “super nests,” housing up to 15,000 stinging yellow jackets, that have begun appearing throughout state. Some of the nests are the size of a Volkswagen Beetle, experts say.At least two “perennial yellow jacket nests” were spotted in Alabama in May, and more may pop up, according to Charles Ray, an entomologist working with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES).Entomologists believe that due to milder winters and an abundant food supply, wasps are able to survive and “enter spring with much larger numbers,” resulting in the appearance of the nests.A yellow jacket nest on a house. (Photo Credit: Alabama Cooperative Extension System)“These perennial nests may be several feet wide and have many thousands of workers, far more than an average nest,” said Ray, who is also a research fellow in Auburn University’s Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology. “We have found them attached to home exteriors and other places you might not expect to find yellow jackets.”Ray said the biggest amount of workers he has counted was about 15,000, which is three to four times bigger than a normal nest. However, there was one nest in South Carolina that was documented with more 250,000 workers.The state of Alabama may actually see larger numbers of perennial nests this year.A yellow jacket nest filling the interior of a car. (Photo Credit: Alabama Cooperative Extension System)“We confirmed two nests in May and have indications of a third,” Ray said. This means the nests have started appearing several weeks earlier than in 2006, when experts identified the first giant nest in June 13.“If we are seeing them a month sooner than we did in 2006, I am very concerned that there will be a large number of them in the state,” Ray said. “The nests I have seen this year already have more than 10,000 workers and are expanding rapidly.”In 2006, nests were located in multiple counties with the most northern location occurring in Talladega County.An above-ground yellow jacket nest. (Photo Credit: Alabama Cooperative Extension System)So what should Alabama residents do if they spot one of these massive nests?“First and foremost, do not disturb the nest,” said Ray. “While these giant nests often appear less aggressive than smaller colonies, it is important that people do not disturb the nests.”Next, Ray wants people to contact him so he can document the nest and collect insect specimens. People should contact him by email at raychah@aces.edu or at raychah@auburn.edu.Finally, if people need to have nests removed, Ray says it is a task only for licensed commercial pest control operators. He warns that even some commercial operators will not tackle these giant perennial yellow jacket nests.More on Geek.com:Watch : Florida Man Dodges Lovebugs With ‘The Matrix’ MovesDoctors Find Four Bees Living Inside Woman’s EyeSwarm of Mayflies Invades Ohio, Shows Up on Weather Radarlast_img read more

MercedesAMGs GLB35 is a USbound hot crossover thats ready to rip

first_img 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560 Coupe review: Still the luxury benchmark 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC350e review: Premium plug-in hybrid feels like an efficiency half-step Share your voice Enlarge ImageThe GLB35 is a 300-hp hot crossover that looks ready to rip up a twisty road. Mercedes-AMG We’re fans of the styling of Mercedes-Benz’s latest little crossover, the GLB. It’s slightly boxier and more practical-looking than some of its kin, it looks like it’d be a great car for city driving and the only way we’d dig it more would be if AMG got involved somehow.Oh wait, it did. Mercedes-AMG announced the hotted-up GLB35 4Matic on Wednesday, and it’s a hell of a thing. As you might expect based on the name, AMG has bestowed upon this little beastie its 305-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and some sweet all-wheel drive. The best part is that Mercedes has confirmed that it’ll hit US dealers in late 2020. Time to start saving that couch change.”With the new GLB 35 4MATIC we are extending our product portfolio by adding a highly attractive model for an active target group that attaches special importance to versatility,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG. “This also includes the optional seven-seater capability of our new compact SUV, though without having to sacrifice the genes typical of an AMG. Because in its segment, our GLB 35 likewise fulfills our brand promise of Driving Performance.”What else makes the GLB35 special? Well, it’s got an eight-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch transmission and what AMG is calling Race Start — aka launch control. Add that to its five selectable driving modes and AMG-tuned suspension and dynamic power steering, and you’ve likely got an impressive little canyon carver that’s just as happy grabbing groceries as getting speeding tickets.Because the GLB class is new, it gets to benefit from Mercedes’ excellent MBUX infotainment system and the stylish dash layout that tends to come with it. Other interior touches include Mercedes’ first optional third row with two individual seats, rather than a bench.

From HBO to HU Howard AD Davis Brings HBO Savvy to HBCU

first_imgBy MARK F. GRAY, Special to the AFROFew people in sports know the exhilaration of constantly being at the epicenter of world-class events.  Howard University Athletics Director Kery Davis does.  The former HBO Boxing executive is now the steward of a Bison athletic program that is enjoying a renaissance thanks to the credibility he has restored.However, there is a still a passion for the game where he made his name.  Davis was formerly one of the big players when HBO was the leader in televised boxing.  Davis helped grow fighters into household names by bringing unbelievable talent onto an international stage that gave them a platform to become icons that transcended sports.Former HBO Boxing executive and director of Howard University Athletics, Kery Davis, shared his disappointment with HBO ending boxing broadcasting. (Courtesy Photo)With another homecoming week on the horizon Davis is focused on his football team that remains in contention for a berth in the Celebration Bowl and the start of basketball season.  However, more than three years removed from being one of the most influential executives in sports broadcasting, there are still melancholy feelings about what his former employers did to the brand he did so much to build.“It hurts,” Davis told the AFRO on the sidelines during Howard’s win at Morgan State.  “When you put your heart and soul into something and watch it go away, it’s like a death in the family.”HBO made it official in September when they announced they were getting out of the boxing game.  The days of Sugar Ray Leonard vs Thomas Hearns were no more. Mike Tyson knockouts were a thing of the past. There would be no more cards headlined by Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather either.  Talents such Canelo Alvarez would no longer have that stage as a place to display the skills that make them box office celebrities.“When they hired my assistant to fill my role I could see the handwriting on the wall,” said Davis.  “I knew I could do something, but it wouldn’t be in network TV.”Davis signed Alvarez in one of his last major coups at the network.  Now, as HBO gets out of the game, Alvarez has signed with DAZN, the new subscriber based fight platform, for a multi-year deal that will pay him over $300 million.“If you’re starting a fight network these days that’s not a bad place to start,” Davis said.  “He brings viewers and that’s a great signing for them.”Davis’s mark is now being felt on the entire athletic department at Howard.  Once homecoming was the signature event and the focus of the department for the ensuing 364 days until SportsCenter meets Access Hollywood surrounded by football game again.  Now Howard athletics values its brand and Davis has played a major role in that.From the outset Davis chartered a course that has renewed Howard’s athletic visibility.  When he hired Mike London from the University of Maryland as football coach, the seismic shift in credibility shifted dramatically.  London, who was a national champion at the FCS (Division I-AA) level, had previously been an ACC Coach of the Year.  Once London beat UNLV in his first game, order had been restored.However, Davis hasn’t been shy about using the media to take his brand into the homes of potential student athletes while exposing their events to an international audience.  ESPN chronicled an entire basketball season after James Daniel led the nation in scores.  The network also put the Howard soccer legacy in focus through the documentary Redemption Song.Now Howard sports are broadcast through WHUR’s “Our Voices” satellite radio channel each week.  Once basketball season commences, four games – including vs Harvard and Hampton are expected to be broadcast via Monumental Sports Network.last_img read more

Love Inc Startups Make Breaking Up Easier to Do

first_imgJune 24, 2013 Michelle Crosby’s passion for fixing divorce began when she was 9 years old. “My parents had one of those War of the Roses divorces,” she says. They split when she was 3 years old, but their ongoing disputes led to 15 court appearances over the span of her childhood.Their conflict provided the catalyst for Crosby’s career as a family attorney. But over time, she saw herself contributing to the problematic system that had so profoundly affected her childhood, and knew something had to change. “That 9-year-old really started screaming, ‘No, no, no, we were supposed to fix this, and you’re becoming part of it,'” she says.Crosby resigned from the law firm and in 2009 launched Wevorce, a technology platform that aims to make divorces amicable. Although divorce is a legal process, she says, it is fundamentally a personal and emotional issue that can often be solved without a legal battle.While heartbreak has long been a lucrative business for attorneys, only in recent years have startups begun staking their own claim in the post-love period of canceled weddings, called-off engagements and, of course, divorces. More than 1 million U.S. couples get divorced each year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.Related: Why Rupert Murdoch’s Divorce Is a Wakeup Call for Business OwnersWevorce walks couples through a six-step process that culminates in a clean break. Each family is assigned three local experts — an attorney, family counselor and accountant. Along the way, the Wevorce software eliminates redundancies as data, once collected, automatically populate all required documents.Following a four-month trial run at startup accelerator Y Combinator, the startup is retooling and building its network of experts for a nationwide launch. Wevorce, based in San Francisco, currently offers its service in California, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and North Carolina. “Right now we have more demand than we can possibly meet,” says Crosby, who declined to disclose revenues for the 6-employee company. More than 100 families have used Wevorce so far, and only one ended up in court, she says.Michelle Crosby stands with Jeff Reynolds, her partner in Wevorce, a technology platform that aims to eliminate the need for lengthy courtroom divorces.Image credit: WevorceCrosby estimates that divorce professionals spend only 20 percent of the time on a Wevorce case that they would spend on a traditional divorce. Clients pay between $3,500 and $15,000 per family to use the service, and Crosby plans to open up a second revenue stream this fall by licensing the Wevorce software to lawyers, counselors and accountants — professionals who currently work for the company as independent contractors. For clients, the cost is not easily comparable to a standard divorce, which can vary from $5,000 to more than $100,000, depending on how contentious it becomes, particularly if children are involved, says Sari Friedman, a Garden City, N.Y. divorce attorney who runs her own firm.Divorced people often find themselves at odds with their exes over child-care and other issues, Friedman says. According to her, the chief pain point for divorced couples is lack of trust, especially when it comes to raising kids.To reduce this distrust, Two Happy Homes launched in 2012 as a safe space for amicable co-parenting. Founder Traci Whitney, an independent graphic designer in Hartford, Conn., and divorced mother of three young children, launched the website after failing to find adequate tools for communicating with her ex-husband. “It’s sort of an untapped market,” Whitney says. “There is competition, but nobody has taken the lead on it yet.”Related: How to Ask Your Partner for a PrenupTwo Happy Homes offers a shared calendar for children’s activities, a finances section to track expenses and online payments, a medical section for medication and doctor information, a joint-contacts list and a community section that consists of a members’ forum and advice articles written by experts. Users can also share documents and pictures.The website keeps a permanent record of all parental dialogue. This record can be accessed by lawyers and other professionals as needed. “Some higher-conflict couples need to have a record of communications,” Whitney says. The limited basic service is free of charge, while for $15 a month you get access to unlimited contacts and document sharing, plus the medical section and the ability to pay your expenses through PayPal.”There is no talk of courts or custody battles. People that are co-parenting don’t need to be reminded every day that they’re divorced, they just need a place to organize their hectic lives that is friendly and useful,” Whitney says. To be sure, some exes may be too far gone to work together. But Friedman says a system like the one Two Happy Homes offers could lead to a better co-parenting arrangement for others.Whitney’s solo venture has not yet turned a profit, since all revenue — less than $10,000 so far — is going to maintain the site. According to her, after a little over a year the site currently has about 2,500 users — 1,250 couples — and is adding users every day. In the near future, Whitney hopes to create a mobile app. She is in talks with angel investors, she says, and would like to raise about $500,000 to develop the app and begin a major marketing push.Along with these divorce-centered businesses are a small crop of startups addressing the problems surrounding called-off engagements and canceled weddings. I Do Now I Don’t is an online discount marketplace for engagement rings and wedding dresses from couples who never made it down the aisle. Founded in 2007 by former market researcher Josh Opperman, the company’s monthly sales are about $200,000.Another startup helping the “disengaged” is Bridal Brokerage. Would-be brides and grooms who call off their wedding can sell their wedding package at a discount through the Bridal Brokerage website. Another couple gets the day of their dreams, while the seller recoups some of the cost of flowers, caterers, photographers, location deposits and more.These startups are banking on the millions of lovelorn searching for ways to ease the pain of heartbreak. “We’re really trying to change a very big conversation in this country,” Crosby says. “If we can make this easier for the professionals and the client, why wouldn’t you choose to settle things amicably? Why would you fight it out in court?”Related: 7 Qualities to Look for in a Lawyer 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

When its icy or snowy this is how you should drive

first_imgIn 1990 we had PROPER snow Why do schools close when it snows? Your rights if you can’t make it to work This is how to drive in ice & snow 7 fun ways to enjoy snow with kids 8 local places to go sledging! center_img How to stay safe in snow on commute A snowy Stoke-on-Trent in 1981 Get the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailHeavy snowfall and showers of sleet are expected across Stoke-on-Trent, North Staffordshire and South Cheshire this morning. The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for ice, which could pose a danger to drivers. To ensure motorists stay safe we’ve compiled a list of useful guideline and advice from the RAC. Read these tips from the  RAC  on how to drive safely in snowy conditions:  Wear comfortable and dry footwear. Accelerate gently, use low revs and change up to a higher gear as quickly as possible. Move off in second gear as this will help reduce wheel slip – some cars have a winter mode, which does the same job – so check whether your car has this function in its handbook. Get your speed right and maintain safe stopping distances between you and the car in front, leaving as much as 10 times the normal recommended gap. Prepare for an uphill start by leaving plenty of room in front so you can maintain a constant speed without the need for changing gear. Use a low gear for going downhill and try to avoid braking unless necessary, make sure you leave plenty of space between you and the car in front. When approaching a bend, brake before you actually start to turn the steering wheel. If your car does lose grip try not to panic; the key thing is to take your foot off the accelerator and make sure that your wheels are pointing in the direction you want to go in. If you do encounter a skid, steer gently into it. For example, if the rear of the car is sliding to the right, steer to the right. Do not take your hands off the steering wheel or stamp your foot on the brakes. When driving in heavy snow, make sure that you use your dipped headlights. Relying on daytime running lights is not enough, because they don’t always put lights on the back of your car. If visibility drops below 100m, put your fog lights on. But remember to turn them off when the visibility improves. Controls such as the brakes, as well as the steering, accelerator and even gear changing should be operated smoothly and slowly. If the road has not been gritted, be wary of other vehicles, as compressed snow is likely to be more icy than fresh snow. Sunglasses can help to reduce the glare of low winter sun on the snow. It’s important to think about the environment that you’re driving in, especially micro-climates that might appear on the road. These are areas that perhaps the sun hasn’t got to, which could stay icy when the rest of the road has thawed. Bridges are a good example. They’re normally the first to freeze and the last to thaw. So be aware of that when you’re driving in open spaces. Make sure you keep your car clean. The salt used to de-ice roads can cause corrosion to your car over time, so it’s worth making a point of cleaning it regularly throughout the winter months. Read MoreSnow in Stoke-on-Trent & North Staffordshire Read these tips from the  RAC  on how to drive safely when there is ice on the roads:  Prepare for driving on ice: Firstly, think about whether your journey is really necessary. Tyre grip is hugely reduced on icy roads, and braking distances are much longer. Even if you avoid an accident, your car may get stuck – potentially leading to a long walk home. Traffic congestion is likely to be worse, too. If you don’t get stuck, the driver in front of you probably will… Before you leave home, make sure you pack a charged mobile phone (and a charger cable), a bottle of water, a few snacks and a warm blanket. If snowfall looks likely, a set of snow socks – high-grip fabric covers fitted over the car’s driven wheels – is worth having, too. If you’re driving to meet someone, let them know your route and when you expect to arrive. Make sure the car’s windows and mirrors are completely clear before you set off. And in cars with selectable drive modes, select the best option for cold conditions. How to drive on icy roads: Anticipation and smoothness are key for driving on icy roads. Look well ahead for potential hazards – including, of course, patches of ice – and keep your speed well down. Accelerate, brake, steer and change gear as smoothly as possible to reduce the risk of a skid. A higher gear may be more appropriate to aid grip on packed ice. This helps manage engine power delivery, making it easier to find traction. If it’s a manual, you might need to slip the clutch a little to prevent the car from stalling. Many automatics will let you select second gear at a standstill to pull away in.last_img read more

first_img Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. — First team reps have been hard to come by for Arizona Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper. However, an injury to starting right guard Paul Fanaika caused the team to shuffle its offensive line a bit in practice Monday, and while head coach Bruce Arians said he expects Fanaika to be fine by the time the team takes the field again Wednesday, he feels confident that Cooper would be ready to play well if called upon. “He’s had two really good weeks of practice,” Arians said. “There’s very hardly any noticeable limp whatsoever, and he’s playing much better.”Arians has often maintained that it will be difficult for Cooper to find his way back into the lineup unless an injury occurs, as the coaching staff has no desire to tinker with a position that tends to perform better when continuity is present. Then again, if Cooper gets back to where he was before breaking his leg, the team may have no choice but to find snaps for him.But Cooper doesn’t think he’s quite there yet.“I feel like I still have work to do but I do see some improvements, but not quite where I want to be yet,” he said. It’s been a long and bumpy road for the seventh overall selection in the 2013 draft. Penciled in as a starter at left guard almost from the moment the team nabbed him out of North Carolina, he did nothing but impress before losing his entire rookie season to a broken leg. Then, when he was finally starting to work his way back into form, he suffered a turf toe injury in the preseason opener this season. Cooper then seemed to fall out of favor with Arians, and could only watch as veteran Ted Larsen earned the job that was once reserved for him. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments   Share   He has no problem fighting for the job he wants, but admitted his career hasn’t exactly gone according to plan.“I don’t know what I expected,” he said. “I know, prior to getting injured, I expected to come in and just play to the best of my ability. Now it’s kind of having a setback. “My mindset is really just to focus on improving and not look at the hurdles, and just kind of continue to move forward and try to compete.”And finally, possibly for the first time since before he was initially hurt as a rookie, Cooper’s health is no longer an issue. He said the turf toe being a thing of the past allows him to really push off of it and run, which offers him an opportunity to display the athleticism that led to the Cardinals using such a high pick on him. Maybe more important than that, though, is the fact that he can finally focus on improving as a football player rather than rehabbing from or compensating for an injury.“I feel like now that the kind of extra limp or whatever is out of the way, now it is really to hone in my skills and really focus on being a better technical player so I can compete,” he said. last_img read more

Rookie center Evan Boehm goes through a drill duri

first_imgRookie center Evan Boehm goes through a drill during Cardinals rookie mini-camp. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Comments   Share   Robert Nkemdiche generated the headlines, while Brandon Williams created some question marks and Marqui Christian has created some buzz.But of all the Cardinals’ rookies, Evan Boehm may have the greatest impact.Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has said Boehm will not be handed a job, and instead will battle for a center spot that was manned by Lyle Sendlein the last eight seasons.That’s why, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, Boehm is one of 10 rookies not taken among the first 20 picks who could compete for a starting job in 2016. Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Boehm, a fourth-round pick, brings something to the table every offensive line coach wants: consistency. He started every single game of his college career — from his true freshman through his senior season — and now looks to pry the job away from A.Q. Shipley, who started three games for the Cardinals last season. Shipley is a journeyman who has played on six teams since entering the league in 2009. It’s likely a matter of time until Boehm takes over this role, and while coach Bruce Arians has not been hesitant to be patient with rookies, this former Missouri Tiger should at least compete for starting time.Boehm started 52 games in four seasons for Missouri, the last three of which were at center. While the Cardinals did not spend a high pick on him — No. 128 overall — it’s difficult to imagine they do not envision him manning the middle of their offensive line at some point, possibly as soon as this season.At the same time, Shipley does have NFL experience, with 45 appearances and 19 career starts under his belt, and last season he filled in for an injured Sendlein during the Cardinals’ NFC West-clinching win over the Philadelphia Eagles.center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Nothing has to be decided yet, and it’s possible another player will emerge as the team’s choice for Week 1 against the New England Patriots. If not, the next handful of months of mini-camp, OTAs and training camp should be fun to watch as the battle between Boehm and Shipley rages on. – / 28 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
