You are reading it right. There’s a new deadly plant disease which has been discovered recently in North Bay. The focus of this new disease has started in North Bay, when a giant egg mass of the insect known as glassy-winged sharpshooter was found in Napa County. This pest can be quite harmful for plants, that’s why it’s considered a pretty dangerous disease which can completely ruin the plants and ecosystem in any given location. Fortunately the egg mass has been destroyed promptly, and this is pretty good, because this disease could have caused a lot of damage to North Bay.

This potentially-dangerous egg mass was discover exactly on March 7. Where? It was found in a tree shipment whose origin was Orange County. The point here is that the glassy-winged sharpshooter has been in that zone since 1990 approximately.

But how was the egg mass detected? It was thanks to Napa County officials, who informed agricultural officials promptly. They informed many agricultural officials and inspectors in many counties about the issue. And inspectors located at Sonoma County also found an egg mass on a tree which was shipped from Orange County. Thanks to this rapid action a disaster was avoided.

early egg massEven though this pest can be kind of new to North Bay, this is a pest which affects many counties in the south of the USA. And this has been confirmed by reputable institutions like the University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program, who have agreed on the fact that this disease has become common in the south.

Apart of the fast and effective agricultural officials’ work, this disease was detected thanks to surveillance program, whose unique goal was to detect the glassy-winged sharpshooter. Because according to recent studies and informs, this disease is quickly spreading to other locations in the USA. Now let’s check what an expert on the topic said about this disease.

According to Humberto Izquierdo, Napa County Assistant Agricultural Commission, this disease can be quite damaging because it’s pretty fast in terms of expansion. According to his words all it takes to spread this disease is the unfortunate introduction to form a full population of glassy-winged sharpshooter.

The good thing is that this threat was considered as viable because it was found solely in a tree shipment, and the fact that it was detected pretty quickly helps a lot. Because if this disease remains undetected, then it can quickly grow and infect a full location. Because as we have seen before, according to Humberto Izquierdo’s words, it’s pretty easy for the glassy-winged sharpshooter to expand and form a full population. So by the moment we can rest easy, but we should not forget that this disease is quickly spreading, so we should remain aware in order to detect other infected shipments.

Blood Clotting in Inactive Women

Heart_Beating_Animation
The human body is a complex organic machine that is centrally controlled by one organ. This one organ is your heart and is responsible for keeping you alive and functioning. How it does this is by pumping blood through your cardiovascular network to all parts of your body including other vital organs that keep you alive. Your blood itself is a very complex substance. This red fluid consisting of blood plasma has these tiny particles floating in it called the red and white blood cells. These red blood cells are what carry oxygen to various parts of your body, the heart is just getting them to those parts and back. An obstruction the systematic flow of blood in your vessels can result in dire consequences. According to recent research findings, women who are the least concerned about their physical activities are the most likely to cause their blood platelets to trigger and result in clots that are far from needed in your blood stream. This research, carried out in the University of Vienna entailed many rigorous and through experiments that recorded the cardiovascular activities of volunteers at various levels of physical activity. What the folks at Vienna discovered was that the ladies that ranked higher on the physical activity spectrum had better blood flow and were less prone to having their blood vessels clogged by clotted blood.

Now, it pretty much goes without saying that people who aren’t all that active and tend to eat and sleep for most of the time are more prone to heart diseases. In fact chances are that you even remember someone telling you that at some point of your life. However, to think that said heart disease started with a simple blood clot can be a bit unsettling and even embarrassing. The study showed how young and otherwise seemingly healthy females are at a high risk of an inflammation in their blood vessels due to an inadequate amount of exercise in their daily routine. This condition is known as atherosclerosis and is actually just as scary as it sounds. If your blood vessels are inflamed, they’re not going to do a very good job at letting you have a normal blood pressure. Clogged arteries and vessels can result in strokes and in the worst case scenario, even heart attacks. Other causes of clogged arteries and vessels include smoking, eating foods with large quantities of saturated fats and sleeping or just staying inactive for large expanses of time. You need to get up and get that blood flowing, ladies. It is recommended that you exercise at least a bit in some form every two hours. If that sounds like a bit much then why not go for a nice run in the park every morning? It could do you wonders!
