Bed bugs from school

first_imgJust when parents thought head lice were the only insects to invade classrooms, bed bugs have been added to the list. Hotels are typically the place that comes to mind when bedbugs are mentioned, but the critters like book bags, too. Bed bugs began making national news about three years ago. While they don’t carry disease, the pests are notoriously hard to get rid of, and just the suggestion that bed bugs might be in your home is enough to make most people’s skin crawl. They also carry a stigma that prevents people from telling their friends or their children’s teacher that they are battling bed bugs at home. “You could say that your house is surrounded by mosquitos and your neighbors would think nothing of it, but you don’t want them to know you have bed bugs,” said Paul Guillebeau, an Extension entomologist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “But bed bugs don’t have anything to do with sanitation. It doesn’t mean that a house is dirty or not cared for.” While the bugs can’t be transferred from human to human, there have been reports of them hitching a ride to school in students’ book bags — and book bag to book bag transfer could be possible. School officials only notify parents when there is a serious chance one child’s bed bugs could have infested another child’s book bag, which is not common but is possible. When parents learn that one of their children’s classmates brought bed bugs to school, the first thing they should remember is not to panic. There are practical steps and precautions they can take to make sure their child doesn’t carry bedbugs into the house, Guillebeau said. If the school sends home a letter notifying parents that someone in their child’s class brought bed bugs to school, parents should not let their child bring their back pack inside the house. Leave it on the porch or in the car, he said. “If I received notification from the school about bed bugs, I would immediately wash and dry my child’s clothes when they arrived home from school. And I would not bring any items inside before a thorough inspection or treating the items to a heat treatment,” Guillebeau said. Simply leaving the book bag in a closed car during the hottest part of the day or emptying the book bag and placing it into a hot dryer for 45 minutes should kill any bugs. If you do notice bites on yourself or your child, or see bed bugs inside your house, the first rule of dealing with bed bugs still applies: Don’t panic. The bugs are hard, but not impossible, to control. You will, however, have to call a professional exterminator to handle the problem, Guillebeau said. “It’s just not a situation that amateurs can take care of themselves,” he said. While bed bug treatment can be pricey, it may be less expensive than repeatedly trying to kill the bed bugs yourself. Consumers should be careful about who they hire to exterminate bed bugs, Guillebeau said. Not all pest control companies have experience with bed bugs, so make sure to ask the company you’re considering about their experience with bedbugs, and don’t be afraid to ask for references. There are a number of bed bug resources available including Georgia Department of Public Health handbooks and fact sheets available at http://health.state.ga.us/epi/zvbd/infest/index.asp.last_img read more

ET2000 TT tests the limits of innovation

first_imgINTRO: Deutsche Waggonbau AG has built a speculative prototype of this innovative low-floor articulated electric trainset with individual powered axles for German regional servicesIN RESPONSE to a request from German Railway for innovative trains to update regional services, Deutsche Waggonbau has built an experimental two-car articulated unit packed with innovative ideas and equipment. Called the ET2000 TT, it was assembled at DWA’s Ammendorf and Vetschau works and is currently being commissioned before trial running starts next spring.Apart from articulation, the ET2000 TT features short bodies using hybrid lightweight construction and end crumple zones, hydraulically powered tilting, single wheelsets with radial steering, and a section with the floor only 760mm above rail top. The 15 kV 16 2??3Hz traction equipment has an IGBT module feeding two three-phase asynchronous motors, each with a nominal rating of 250 kW. Tilting is powered from a central hydraulics unit that also handles other auxiliary functions: suspension, pantograph lift, radial steering, and disc braking. The 160 km/h ET2000 TT is intended as the forerunner of a family of modular trains for regional electrified routes. Using 2+3 seating in the ET2000’s wide bodies, DWA expects to accommodate 300 seated passengers in a train length of 100m.DWA shared development work with sub-sidiaries Institut für Schienenfahrzeuge Berlin GmbH and Fahrzeugausrüstung Berlin GmbH, as well as Dresden Technical University. oCAPTION: From next year DWA’ ET2000 TT will be tested on German Railway’s regional routes.Left: Fig 1.

Lakers to meet with LeBron James’ former coach Tyronn Lue, report says

first_img76ers assistant Monty Williams and Heat assistant Juwan Howard are also being considered for the position, according to Yahoo Sports.The Lakers finished the regular season 10th in the Western Conference with a 37-45 record and have missed the playoffs each of the last six seasons. The 41-year-old Lue immediately emerged as a “strong frontrunner” for the head coach position after Luke Walton was fired from the Lakers last Friday following three seasons at the helm. A few days later, Walton agreed to take over a Kings team that has missed the playoffs for 13 straight seasons.Lue has a history with James as the two worked together in Cleveland. He was an assistant in 2014 before taking over as head coach during the 2015-16 season after the Cavaliers fired David Blatt. Lue led Cleveland to a 128-83 record in four seasons as head coach, but was fired just six games into the 2018-19 season after James signed with the Lakers in free agency over the summer. Related News NBA trade rumors: Lakers, Bulls had ‘initial conversations’ about Lonzo Ball before deadline Lue guided the team to a NBA championship in 2016 and then coached the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals the next two seasons. Lue’s relationship with James could be a selling point for the Lakers as they look to turn around the franchise. But it could also present problems in Los Angeles. According to the New York Times, “some in the Lakers’ organization may fear hiring Lue would be giving LeBron too much control.”center_img Kings confirm Luke Walton is new coach LeBron James and coach Tyronn Lue have a chance of reuniting in Los Angeles as Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and the former Cavaliers coach are set to met Friday to discuss the open coaching job, according to ESPN.The meeting will take place at a hotel in Orange County that is close to Pelinka’s Newport Beach home.last_img read more
