for colored girls gets people talking review

I remember studying the play as an undergraduate in California in the 1980s, and being challenged by its lack of traditional characterization and narrative – it’s mostly a series of poetic monologues spoken by seven black women identified only by the colours of their dresses. They talk, chant, dance, and sing about sexuality, violence, oppression, and liberation.It presented some experiences that I, as a white person, felt distant from, but others that resonated with me as a woman. In the meantime, we’ve developed words and concepts to describe this; the language of intersectionality – the ways in which race, class, gender and other factors overlap, and play into systems of oppression – rolls with confidence off the tongues of today’s Canadian undergraduates.READ MORE Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Twitter By Ntozake Shange, directed by Djanet Sears.

World Bank Approves $150 Million Loan to Support Entrepreneurship in Morocco

Rabat – The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors approved a total of USD150 million in funding on March 10 to support the Moroccan authorities’ plan to modernize the national identification system and and support innovative start-ups and job creation.The two operations, aimed at strengthening social and economic inclusion, will improve social programs through a better personal identification system and, on the other hand, remove barriers which prevent start-ups and small businesses from accessing financing, says the World Bank.Improving Social Programs According to the World Bank, “almost 5.3 million Moroccans, of which two-thirds from rural areas, live under the threat of falling back into poverty due to their socio-economic conditions.”With an envelope of USD 100 million, the Identity and Targeting for Social Protection Project is designed to help the most vulnerable by developing systems to ensure that social programs are better targeted and reach the most vulnerable Moroccans.The development objective of this project is to expand coverage of a unique identifying number for the Moroccan population and foreign residents, and to improve targeting of social safety nets in the Project Area.According to the World Bank, the project will “help double the impact of poverty reduction programs such as RAMED and Tayssir” and direct resources to only the most vulnerable households and individuals, resulting in estimated savings of more than USD 30 million per year. The project will be implemented by the Ministry of the Interior over a period of five years.“The current program will benefit nearly 9.3 million Moroccans from the most disadvantaged segments of the population enabling them to have greater access to social protection programs. With a better designed and managed identification system, Morocco will be able to implement more targeted social programs that can have tangible impact on the population” said Diego Angel Urdinola, World Bank Senior economist and Task Team Leader for the new project.Financing Startups and Innovative SMEsThe other project approved is a USD 50 million operation to improve financing opportunities for start-ups and innovative SMEs.The Financing Innovative Startups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) project is to facilitate the increase of private equity and quasi-equity finance for innovative startups and small and medium enterprises.The project will support a financing program that will invest, along with private funders, in innovative start-ups and SMEs, as well as a selection of promising investments constituting “the highest contribution to net job creation in the Mena region,” according to the bank.The project will also address gaps in the supply of investment expertise and support needed to create viable startups by providing resources to ecosystem support providers for mentoring and investment-readiness programs. Overall, the project will improve Morocco’s innovative private sector through the creation of a venture capital market in Morocco.Fighting Social Exclusion“Both operations support the government’s commitment to reduce social exclusion and promote private sector growth“ said Marie Françoise Marie-Nelly, World Bank Maghreb Country director, “improving targeting of social programs, strengthening social services and facilitating access to opportunities for entrepreneurs is the path to an inclusive growth that is beneficial to all Moroccans.” read more

Sudan not cooperating on arrests of war crimes suspects says prosecutor

The Sudanese Government has not moved to arrest two suspects wanted to stand trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan’s war-wracked Darfur region, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) said today, calling on Khartoum to cooperate immediately with the court. In an interview with the UN News Centre, Luis Moreno-Ocampo said that it is “totally unacceptable” that one of the two suspects, Ahmad Muhammad Harun, is currently Sudan’s Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs. “He was coordinating actions to remove people from their own villages and push them into IDP [internally displaced person] camps, and now he… basically controls them,” Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said. “Harun is still in charge, effectively, of the same people. He is like the fox being in charge of the chickens.” Unless the Government takes steps to arrest Mr. Harun and the other suspect, Janjaweed militia leader Ali Muhammad Ali Abd-Al-Rahman (also known as Ali Kushayb), Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said he would inform the Security Council in his next progress report. He said there had been no progress from Khartoum since it was informed of the arrests and its responsibilities. “They have to remember, Sudan, that this issue is a part of their duties now that we have these global legal standards” enshrined in the ICC, said the Prosecutor. “The responsibility to execute the warrant is for the Government of Sudan,” and not for him or the ICC or the Security Council. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said his staff were trying to monitor the movements of the two suspects to determine their whereabouts, particularly now that an Interpol red notice – which allows the warrant to be circulated around the world with the request that the wanted person is arrested with a view to extradition – has been issued for Mr. Harun. Mr. Harun and Mr. Kushayb are accused of targeting civilians in attacks on four villages in West Darfur between August 2003 and March 2004, according to their warrants, which outlines multiple counts of personal responsibility for murder, rape and pillaging for each man. The ICC Prosecutor has been investigating war crimes committed in Darfur amid increasing international efforts to stop the bloodshed in the impoverished region and provide justice to victims of the violence and human rights violations. More than 200,000 people have been killed and at least two million others forced to leave their homes in Darfur since 2003 because of fighting between rebel groups, Government forces and allied Janjaweed militias. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo, who is in New York this week, held talks today on Darfur and other issues, including the progress of cases in northern Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic (CAR), with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. He also spoke on the same issues, and the need for greater cooperation between the UN and the ICC, with Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Affairs Jean-Marie Guéhenno, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser for the Prevention of Genocide Francis Deng and the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Margareta Wahlström. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo is also taking part this week in a conference for current and past prosecutors of international criminal tribunals being held in Chautauqua, New York. 28 August 2007The Sudanese Government has not moved to arrest two suspects wanted to stand trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan’s war-wracked Darfur region, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) said today, calling on Khartoum to cooperate immediately with the court. read more

Things to buy in March

March is an unusual time for retailers. The shift between seasons, and just getting over Christmas, Valentine’s Day and March Break means certain items are in abundance and on sale.With March Break wrapping up, retailers want to get rid of winter apparel, and bring in their spring fashion.RedFlagDeals.Com ‘s James Astor says now the time to buy jeans, winter coats and boots, if you can still find them in your size.According to Astor, “Retailers are looking to get rid of their pant selection to make way for shorts. Its pretty obvious, but that’s why they have deep discounts on jeans.”He goes on to say, “February is probably the prime time for winter items, but if you can find winter items they are usually at a pretty deep discount”The only trouble with buying winter items on the brink of spring is that by the time you can actually wear them, you may not feel the same about your purchase.The number one best deal to find in March is something that won’t go out of style very easily, its luggage.“Consumers can find great deals, upwards of 65% and at some retailers almost 80% off of luggage.. as retailers try to close out some of their luggage from Christmas or march break”Astor says some other great deals this time of year are spring cleaning items such as mops, vacuums, and cleaning products which despite being in high demand are available everywhere. read more

Bernanke says Fed wont alter its stimulus until it sees sustained improvement

WASHINGTON – Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday that even though the U.S. economy has improved in recent months, the Fed won’t alter its aggressive stimulus policies until it is convinced the gains can be sustained.During a news conference after the Fed’s two-day policy meeting, Bernanke repeated that the Fed plans to keep its key short-term interest rate near zero until unemployment is below 6.5 per cent. But he noted that 6.5 per cent is a “threshold,” not a “trigger.”He also said the central bank may vary the size of its monthly bond purchases depending on whether and how much the job market improves. It is currently spending $85 billion a month to help lower long-term rates.The unemployment rate has fallen to a four-year low of 7.7 per cent, among many signs of a healthier economy.“We are seeing improvement,” Bernanke said. “One thing we would need is to see this is not temporary improvement.”The Fed’s commitment to its low-interest rate policies drove stock prices higher Wednesday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 10 points Wednesday end the day up at 1,558 — a few points shy of its record close of 1,565 on Oct. 9, 2007.Bernanke downplayed concerns that the Fed’s stimulus policies are inflating stock prices.“We don’t see at this point anything that is out of line with historical patterns,” said Bernanke. He noted that it is not surprising to see stocks rise given optimism about the economy and strong earnings reports.Bernanke, whose second four-term term as Fed chairman ends in January 2014, also avoided answering questions about whether he would consider staying on for a third term. His predecessor, Alan Greenspan, served as Fed chairman for more than 18 years.Bernanke said that he had discussed the issue with President Barack Obama “a bit.” But he did not reveal any specifics from that discussion.He was asked whether he might consider staying at the Fed to manage the exit strategy, the period when the Fed reverses course and starts selling bonds and boosting short-term interest rates.“I don’t think I am the only person in the world who can manage the exit,” Bernanke said. “With respect to my personal plans, I will let you know when I have something more concrete.”___AP Business Writer Marcy Gordon contributed to this report.

Yankees Alex Rodriguez Sidelined With Broken Hand

Eric Chavez suffered a broken hand and was out exactly eight weeks. That’s how long he expects to be the New York Yankees third baseman as Alex Rodriguez hand broken Tuesday night in Seattle heals.Two months is a long time for the Yankees, team with the best record in baseball, to go without Rodriguez’ bat in the lineup. He’s hitting .276 with 15 home runs and 44 RBIs, but is as explosive a batter as there is in the game. And just two days ago he talked about how great he felt at the plate.“It’s a tough blow,” a disappointed Rodriguez said about an hour after the game. His left hand heavily wrapped, he will fly back with the team after Wednesday’s game and be checked out by the Yankees’ medical staff on Thursday.“I never thought it was a fracture,” he said. “But it was.”It was the eighth inning of a 4-2 loss when Rodriguez grabbed his left hand with his right after being hit, and never let go even as he fell to the ground, writhing on the dirt near home plate.He was struck by a Felix Hernandez pitch, breaking the fifth metacarpal. It was one thing to have lost five of six games to start a road trip. It was quite another to lose their big bat in the 3 hole.“It’s non-displaced (fracture), which is good,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “But we’re going to have to make some changes, which is too bad, because Alex was just starting to feel good again.”The pitch from Hernandez was a 91 mph change up and was the third pitch of his to find a New York batter. Hernandez hit three of the final five batters he faced, hitting Ichior Suzuki in the seventh and Derek Jeter before Rodriguez in the eighth. read more

Police searching for two woman involved in armed confrontation at 99 Cents

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: January 4, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A shoplifting incident escalated into an armed confrontation last month at a San Diego discount store, and police Thursday sought the public’s help to locate two female suspects in the case, including one who allegedly held a gun to a store employee’s head before he tackled her and wrestled away the firearm.Police identified the suspects as 25-year-old Ariel Burrus and 22-year- old Irene Lee. The two were allegedly trying to steal several items on Dec. 13 from the Savers 99 Cents Store in the 4100 block of University Avenue when a store employee confronted them and blocked the store’s exit.The employee demanded that Lee show him what she was trying to steal, but both women were uncooperative, San Diego police robbery unit Lt. Eric Hays said.Burrus tried shoving her way past the employee, but was unsuccessful,” Hays said. “Burrus then pulled out a small caliber revolver from the back of her waistband and pointed it at the back of the employee’s head … cocked back the hammer and said `let us go.”’The employee instead turned and tackled Burrus to the ground while taking the revolver from her, Hays said. Lee tried kicking the employee while he tangled with Burrus on the ground, and the combative woman on the ground demanded the gun back, but the employee grasped the firearm until both women fled.Burrus allegedly told the employee that she would come back and kill him, Hays said.Lee is black, roughly 5 feet 8 and 130 pounds. Burrus is black, 5 feet 4, 140 pounds, with a shaved head.Investigators identified the two women from evidence left at the scene and asked anyone who knows their whereabouts to call the SDPD’s Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299, San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.org.

Elon Musk Interstellar mashup stars SpaceX rocket doobie

Manju Warrier walking towards safe haven with crew after getting trapped in

first_imgManju Warrier FacebookManju Warrier, popularly known as the lady Superstar of Mollywood faced the nightmare of her lifetime, as she got trapped in the flood in Himachal Pradesh. As per media reports, Manju Warrier along with acclaimed filmmaker Sanal Kumar Sasidharan was in Himachal Pradesh for the shooting of their new movie.Last night, the actress called her brother Madhu Warrier and informed that the crew is stuck at Chatru, Himachal Pradesh due to heavy floods.”My sister called me last night using a satellite phone. She informed me that she along with the film’s crew members and director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan are trapped at Chatru. She was asking for help. Their food supplies are running out. She revealed that they have only one-day food remaining. Our conversation was very short, as the phone call lasted for only fifteen seconds,” said Madhu Warrier to regional media outlets.Madhu Warrier added that there was no communication between him and Manju Warrier for the past three weeks due to mobile signal issues and no internet connectivity in Himachal Pradesh.A recent report published in Mathrubhumi reveals that Manju Warrier and the crew is now safe. The report states that Manju Warrier along with the movie’s crew is walking towards a base camp that is located 22 kilometres away from Chatru. After reaching the base camp, authorities will provide necessary arrangements for the Mollywood actress to reach Manali.In the meantime, cabinet minister V Muraleedharan has apparently talked with Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jairam Thakur and has requested to do all necessary arrangements to ensure the safety of Manju Warrier. “The Mandi district administration is in touch with the stranded crew members. Evacuation efforts are on to bring them back to Manali today,” said V Muraleedharan, ANI reports.last_img read more

Study suggests a rise in number of trading partners leads to fewer

first_imgCredit: Tim Emerich/public domain (Phys.org)—A pair of researchers with Stanford University has found via crunching economic and war data, that the more trading partners a country has, the less likely it will be to engage in a war. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the pair describes how they first attacked the problem from the reverse perspective, looking at data that showed an inclination to go to war in the absence of trade partnerships and how they were unable to find any correlations. It is a well known in political circles that countries tend to not go to war with other countries that are their trading partners—doing so generally makes no logical sense. Also well known is the fact that the modern age has led (despite incessant headlines) to unprecedented low levels of warfare between countries. What is not really understood, however, is how much trading with partners actually impacts the numbers of wars waged. As the researchers note, prior studies have found that a large amount of trade with other countries is not necessarily a sign of a lesser likelihood of a country going to war—the period leading up to WWII, for example saw massive international trade.To better understand correlations between international trade, military alliances and international wars, the researchers built a data network that used mathematical models to study the impact of international trade and wars to see if they could find any patterns—they report that in the absence of trade, alliances tended to shift frequently and easily leading just as easily to wars. When they switched the question to whether the number of trading partners had an impact on wars, they found quite the opposite. Most countries tended to not go to war with trading partners, and the more partners a country had, in general, the fewer wars they had. As an example, they note that back in 1870, the world’s countries had an average of just three trading partners, today that number has climbed to between 17 and 34, depending on the exact definition of a trading partner.The researchers believe their findings could be useful in avoiding wars in the future—if countries in the west, such as those in the U.S. and Europe, for example, built more trading relationships with places in the Middle East, then it might lead to fewer conflicts between the two regions.

Jackson et al. Networks of military alliances, wars, and international trade, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2015). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1520970112AbstractWe investigate the role of networks of alliances in preventing (multilateral) interstate wars. We first show that, in the absence of international trade, no network of alliances is peaceful and stable. We then show that international trade induces peaceful and stable networks: Trade increases the density of alliances so that countries are less vulnerable to attack and also reduces countries’ incentives to attack an ally. We present historical data on wars and trade showing that the dramatic drop in interstate wars since 1950 is paralleled by a densification and stabilization of trading relationships and alliances. Based on the model we also examine some specific relationships, finding that countries with high levels of trade with their allies are less likely to be involved in wars with any other countries (including allies and nonallies), and that an increase in trade between two countries correlates with a lower chance that they will go to war with each other.

In addition to the EHR, the hospital’s plans include implementation of McKesson’s electronic document imaging system, computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system, pharmacy information system, and medication administration bar-coding technology system.“Over the past 18 months, we’ve provided practitioners in our hospital and clinics with more timely access to critical clinical information,” reports Jon Applebaum, president and chief executive officer, Twin County Regional Hospital. “Now the stage is set to make even larger strides in improving the quality and safety of the care we provide. We expect the additional clinical solutions to help us realize an almost 3-to-1 return on investment in information technology.”TCRH is building on a successful deployment of the Paragon integrated clinical and financial system, which is specifically designed to meet the needs of community hospitals, and McKesson’s Practice Partner CCHIT-certified outpatient medical record. The integrated systems create a single EHR and enable the practices to electronically send orders to the hospital, with results flowing back to the physician offices. All employed physicians at six clinics use the Practice Partner system, while physicians at four affiliated practices are gearing up to install it.“With an EHR, we can share information among our clinics and with the hospital, preventing duplicate procedures, cutting costs and increasing the continuity of care for patients,” says Chastity McGrady, manager of the TCRH Family Care Centers. “The Practice Partner system’s ability to electronically submit prescriptions to a patient’s pharmacy also significantly improves patient safety.”For more information: www.tcrh.org and www.mckesson.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more News | Clinical Decision Support | July 18, 2019 Johns Hopkins Named Qualified Provider-led Entity to Develop Criteria for Diagnostic Imaging On June 30, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the Johns Hopkins University School… read more News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read morelast_img read more

Reddy, M.D., 41, of Atlanta, Ga., on charges of wire fraud, mail fraud, healthcare fraud and obstruction of justice. Reddy, a radiologist who ran the Atlanta-based radiology practice Reddy Solutions Inc., was charged with and found guilty of perpetrating a scheme to defraud various hospitals by signing and submitting tens of thousands of radiology reports without even reviewing many of the X-rays, mammograms, computed tomography (CT) scans and other films that were the subjects of the reports.U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said of today’s verdict, “This physician fraudulently cut corners at the expense of the hospitals he worked for and the patients who were being treated. He produced tens of thousands of reports claiming to include his medical findings and diagnoses based on radiology studies that had been performed, when in fact all those interpretations had been performed by non-qualified medical assistants. We hope this case helps protect the public from such an egregious breach of trust.”Brian Lamkin, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta, said, “Medical fraud investigations are difficult, and in this case, the combination of lies and paper trails ultimately led to a doctor who simply was not serving his patients, but serving himself and his company. People who are sick deserve to have their test results seen and professionally analyzed by a doctor, and not by a machine set up to generate profits. FBI and our investigative partners will continue to take on such medical fraud cases, as the safety of our community could be at risk.”“The healthcare fraud committed by Dr. Reddy is appalling because he risked the health of innocent, trusting patients and betrayed the medical community while stealing federal taxpayer dollars from the Medicare program,” said Derrick L. Jackson, Special Agent in Charge of the Atlanta region for the office of inspector general of the Department of Health & Human Services. “When criminals like Raja Reddy try to cover their crimes by obstructing a federal investigation, they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”The jury found Reddy guilty of 20 counts of wire fraud, five counts of mail fraud, four counts of healthcare fraud and one count of obstruction of justice. He was acquitted of five counts of wire fraud. The jury deliberated for one day after a six-day trial. Reddy was indicted by a federal grand jury on the charges on Nov. 3, 2009.According to U.S. Attorney Yates, the charges and other information presented in court Reddy’s company, RSI, provided radiologist coverage — interpreting X-rays and other films — to various hospitals in the Southeast that otherwise typically lacked full-time radiology coverage. Generally, hospital staff would take the images, which Reddy and other RSI radiologists would access remotely via computer. The RSI radiologist was supposed to review the image, prepare and sign a report expressing his or her medical conclusions, and electronically transmit back to the hospital. Reddy was both the president of the company as well as one of the principal radiologists supposedly interpreting film and preparing reports.The evidence at trial showed that from May 2007 through January 2008, Reddy signed and submitted thousands of reports in his name without even reviewing the films that were the subjects of the reports. Rather, he had non-physician technicians known as radiology practice assistants (RPAs) review the film and prepare the reports. In some cases, Reddy directed the RSI staff to simply sign for him and transmit the report as if he had prepared it. In other cases, Reddy accessed the system solely for the purpose of signing and submitting the reports. Either way, the majority of the time he never looked at and analyzed the underlying films, and the reports signed by him therefore did not bear his medical conclusions or those of any other doctor.The evidence at trial included computer records that showed that while Reddy signed more than 70,000 radiology reports in eight months, he only viewed digital computer images of the studies less than 5,900 times during those months. The employees who actually viewed the majority of these studies were the RPAs, who are not qualified to interpret films but whom Reddy could hire at a fraction of the cost of hiring a radiologist. The proof also included dozens of reports supposedly signed by Reddy at times when he was, in fact, traveling in the air on airplanes that lacked Internet access. These reports were signed by other employees, using Reddy’s electronic password at his direction.The evidence revealed that Reddy also fraudulently passed off these reports prepared by non-physician assistants thousands of times to several hospitals, mainly involving X-rays, but also including some CT scans, mammograms and ultrasounds. Some of the hospitals and other facilities that may have received these fraudulent reports include Mountain Lakes Medical Center in Clayton, Ga.; Upson Regional Medical Center in Thomaston, Ga.; Bullock County Hospital in Union Springs, Ala.; Crenshaw Community Hospital in Lucerne, Ala.; and Columbus Diagnostic Centers in Columbus, Ga.In addition to fraud charges stemming from his fraudulent submission of these medical reports, Reddy was also convicted of obstructing the investigation. During the investigation, a government subpoena to RSI demanded production of the computer records that were supposed to keep track of which users accessed what images and when. Reddy instructed employees to destroy those records and, instead, create for purposes of producing to the government new fabricated records, which falsely stated that Reddy had been viewing images instead of the assistants. Witnesses at the trial explained how they were instructed by Reddy to make these fabrications and to then produce the false records to the government in response to the subpoena. The evidence at trial also showed that Reddy disposed of computer equipment requested by the government and asked employees to lie to investigators.Reddy could receive a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for each of the 32 fraud and obstruction counts of which he was convicted. Sentencing will occur at a date to be determined before U.S. District Judge Orinda D. Evans. In determining the actual sentence, the court will consider the United States Sentencing Guidelines, which are not binding but provide appropriate sentencing ranges for most offenders.This case was investigated by special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Health and Human Services.Assistant U.S. Attorneys Justin S. Anand and Kurt R. Erskine are prosecuting the case.

US Florida expects typical avocado volume de

first_img U.S.: Florida expects “typical” avocado volume, de … You might also be interested in Mexico forecasts record-breaking avocado exports t … Mexico: Taco lovers cry foul over restaurants’ gua … Peruvian Police make arrest after spate of avocado … center_img The necrotic spots as a result of Persea mites feeding are visible both from under the leaves and on the upper part SourceOnce the current population size is known, some basic weather data and forecasts can help estimate population growth. Females can lay between 20 and 45 eggs during their lifetime, and insect phenology models based on degree-days have been developed and tested to help accurately predict generation development and perform timely pest control. Trees with a significant infestation have a paler canopy that can be distinguished from afar, thus making drone based remote sensing a viable option to spot the most critical areas.ECONOMIC THRESHOLD AND BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF PERSEA MITESThe academic world has not come to a consensus on an economic threshold level (ETL) for Persia mite yet. However, a commonly used subjective threshold is when 50% of the leaves become infected by at least one spider mite (Hopefully you catch them before they start building webbing, but catching them this early, especially when there’s only one on a leaf, takes diligent inspection). Studies have shown that most leaves will drop with as little as 10% of their total surface area affected, and some will drop with even smaller affected areas. Growers should get a recommendation from a pest control adviser (PCA) as this threshold level might vary according to regional and environmental factors such as temperature and humidity. A key to a successful integrated pest management plan (IPM) for any pest is keeping good notes on scouting in addition to the final treatment decisions and their outcomes so an organizational knowledge base and best practices can be developed. This can improve the accuracy of whichever ETL is used and optimize the timing of treatment plans, something that is of heightened importance when biological control methods are being used.  Because Persea mites hide under the leaves and both eggs and adults are usually protected by a webbing, chemical spraying is often ineffective. Additionally, most pesticides have a negative impact on natural enemy populations, which increases the probability of secondary pest outbreaks, and frequent pesticide spraying might lead to the development of resistance.The good news is that in California’s avocado regions there are many commercially available predators and parasitoids which are able to control Persea mites. The predatory mite Neoseiulus Californicus is one of the most affordable and effective options. N. Californicus doesn’t overwinter well so its population is often reduced below optimal levels for biocontrol by the start of spring, however,  as we discussed in an earlier article augmentative (booster) releases bring the populations back to effective levels. A typical release rate is 2,000 per tree, with two releases timed between spring and summer when the relatively high temperatures and humidity favor both Persea and predatory mites. However, prescribed rates can vary significantly – some local PCAs find it economically beneficial to release 10,000 predatory mites per tree, especially when those trees are located near dusty roads or in more humid areas. Timing is important to make sure the release is not made too early, in which case, Californicus has less chance to establish a sustainable population because of a lack of food, or too late, when the less expensive preventative treatment rates of predatory mites or other beneficials won’t be sufficient to control the pest population. It is important to note that Californicus does not spread from one tree to another, so an even application is necessary to ensure proper control of Persea mites in the orchard. Californicus needs to be released on each tree, either by attaching a small bag with the predatory mites inside or by releasing them via drones a few meters above the trees. Using a drone service for applications provides even greater control of timing and distribution as they can place the beneficials in the tops of canopies. Other beneficials also prey on Persea mites, such as Euseius hibisci, Galendromus helveolus and Green lacewing larvae. They can be used as substitutes or complementary options, and the larvae of the green lacewing is becoming an increasingly popular choice for drone applications as it is a general predator which also preys on other pests such as aphids and mealybugs. PCAs like them because they can also feed on nectar, which enables them to establish sustainable populations even when the primary food supply – the pest population – is low.CONCLUSIONTo ensure the success of a biocontrol release as part of an IPM plan, the choice of beneficial, rate, timing and frequency should be a decision made with the advice of a PCA. Growers should also follow some general best practices such as: not using more fertilizer than required, especially fertilizers with quick release formulations, so that  unnecessarily high levels of foliar nitrogen (which can indirectly promote pest development don’t accumulate); coordinating the use of pesticides to avoid killing beneficials; and diligently inspecting and cleaning machinery, tools, harvesting bins and workers’ clothing and shoes to avoid transporting Persea mite webbing to avoid cross-contamination. We love hearing from our readers… Are Persea mites an issue in your Avocado orchards? What are your preferred control methods?UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture is a company that leverages precision agriculture technologies and best practices to help growers address labor shortages and make farming operations more profitable and sustainable. July 10 , 2019 By Thomas Grandperrin of UAV-IQ Precision AgricultureThis article is part of a series on biological control and IPM written by UAV-IQ (www.uaviq.com).Avocados are not only one of America’s favorite fruits – 105 million pounds of avocados are eaten on Super Bowl Sunday alone – a tiny arthropod called Persea mite (Oligonychus perseae) also loves them so much that it feeds on their leaves in 99% of California’s avocado orchards, with coastal areas being particularly popular spots for them, because who doesn’t like dining with a view of the Pacific?  The Hass variety is the most susceptible to this pest, and that is not great news because Hass represents 95% of the avocado acreage in the state. Hass’ success has led to it becoming a monoculture, and as such it faces an increased risk of being wiped out by pesticide resistant pests. In this article, we will give an overview of Persea mite characteristics as well as a few popular biological control options that could provide the additional benefit of mitigating the risks of insecticide-resistant pests.GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF PERSEA MITESThe Persea mite is a pale yellow mite which is so small that it can only be identified with a 10x magnifying glass. Originally from Mexico, it is an economically important pest in other Avocado growing regions such as Spain and Israel, and was first observed in California in the 1990s.Adult persea mites and eggs SourceLike many of its arthropod peers, an uncontrolled population in an avocado orchard can have a significant impact on the yield. Some studies have shown that it can cause over 20% yield loss if their population is not controlled properly!Similarly to the other members of the Tetranychidae family, Persea mites tend to hang out under leaves and enjoy a good meal by puncturing and feeding from plant cells there. If it is not taught some manners, this uninvited guest will remove the chlorophyll content until leaf drop occurs, causing defoliation. This is when various undesirable secondary effects start to appear; some fruit will abort their growth, trees will be stressed to a point which reduces yield, and canopy reduction increases fruit exposure to the sun which can lead to sunburned avocados.LIFE CYCLE AND MONITORING OF PERSEA MITESThe population of Persea mites is usually low during the winter and starts to increase during the spring. But Persea mites prefer cooler temperatures; its average egg to adult lifespan is 40 days at 67°F (20°C) but only 15 days at 86°F (30°C). Their maximum population is reached in July or August and it starts to decrease when the temperature rises to 90°F (32°C)Two of the first steps of efficient control of Persea mites are to monitor the population growth and predict generational development. California growers are advised to start monitoring for Persea mites every week from early spring until early fall. One of the best ways to detect its presence is to look for signs of web-spinning under leaves and for necrotic spots on top of the leaves, near the veins. The UC IPM website shows useful photos to help growers recognize Persea mite damage as well as some detailed monitoring recommendations.last_img read more
