Pollen Season Arrives

by ,

first_imgIt’s the wheezing, sneezing, pollen season. “The pollen is here,” said Kim Coder, a University of Georgia Extension Serviceforester. “We’re running 10 to 14 days ahead of normal.” The usual February cold snap that often delays pollen production didn’t come this year. “We went right from cold January to spring,” Coder said. “That didn’t give us thenormal slowing in the trees’ flower production.” It also threw Mother Nature’s timing off. “The environment didn’t push some species along as rapidly as others,” Coder said.”Right now, we have several types of tree pollen that don’t usually produce together,piling up on one another. “The pines, which produce the most visible pollen, are a bit behind, so their pollenseason may be extended,” he said. “Those trees that cause the most allergy problems –oak, walnut or hickory — they’re out and should be over with soon.” In the South, where pollen season is as sure as spring, summer, winter and fall, we justaccept it as a fact of life. But what exactly is it? “Pollen is the male part of the life cycle in a tree,” Coder said. “In pines it comes froma male flower, sometimes called pollen cones.” A close look reveals what looks like a miniature pine cone. They produce little packetscontaining half of the genetic component of the tree. “Usually pollen is extremely light and airborne,” Coder said. “Some have wings. Otherpollen is sticky and is moved by insects.” The trees with showy flowers have pollen normally moved by insects, not the air. “Unless you’re sniffing each flower, you can’t blame showy flowering trees forallergies,” Coder said. It’s the tiny flowers you don’t see — like those of oaks, walnuts, hickories, willows,poplars and birches — that annoy your allergies. “They float and blow around in the air and land on the tiny flowers that are the femaleportion, and you get a viable fruit or seed,” Coder said. Not all trees have pollen. Some have been genetically altered not to flower. “But in nature,” Coder said, “all trees will try to reproduce, and therefore, all maturetrees will produce pollen.” Some produce the male and female parts in the same flower. Others produce male andfemale flowers on separate branches. “Some trees, like willows, cottonwoods, persimmons or hollies, have separate male andfemale trees,” Coder said. “If you have a mature holly tree with no berries, it’s amale.” Not only is the thick yellow pollen you see now annoying to your eyes and nose, butit’s also bothersome to your car’s paint. “You don’t want pollen to build up on painted surfaces,” Coder said. “It can damagethe paint surface, because it has a good amount of nitrogen in it, and bacteria and fungican consume it if it piles up.” The bacteria and fungi produce organic acids that can etch painted surfaces. The grit ofthe pollen can also scratch the surface. Coder recommends rinsing your car with wateroften during the pollen season. While the warm weather tempts us to throw open the doors and windows and air outthe house, Coder says, wait. “Keep your house closed up during the day to keep pollen out if you have allergies,” hesaid. “The magic of spring is here, and the trees are trying to get the pollen out.”last_img read more

However, Milan are now trying to insert themselves into the picture as the player has asked for time to assess his options.The Rossoneri are preparing a bid for the 21-year-old, and the asking price is expected to be at least €50 million, meaning Milan will include some players to lower the cost of the operation.Osimhen netted 13 goals in 27 Ligue 1 games this season, scoring 18 goals in 38 competitive games overall, and a decision is expected by Monday or Tuesday the report claims.Reports also claimed that the player is waiting for offers from the Premier League, with Liverpool having been repeatedly linked too.— Tags: AC MilanAurelio de LaurentiisGennaro GattusoVictor Osimhenlast_img read more

first_imgDuro IkhazuagbeAs reported by THISDAY monday, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced the appointment of Frenchman Paul Le Guen, 52, as the new Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles.The new Eagles’ boss Le Guen who steered the Indomitable Lions of Cameroun to the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals in South Africa is to be assisted by Nigerian Salisu Yusuf, who takes the role of Chief Coach.Both appointments are subject to agreement of contract terms with the NFF Executive Committee. Le Guen is believed to be on a $40,000 per month pay while his assistant is expected to be on a N1.5million monthly. Le Guen played for Brest, Nantes and Paris Saint Germain and won 17 caps for France, before coaching Rennes, Lyon, PSG (in France) and Glasgow Rangers (in Scotland). He also coached Oman.Yusuf, a former Ranch Bees star player was capped at Under-20 level by Nigeria. He is a former coach of both Kano Pillars and Enyimba of Aba.After Sunday Oliseh quit the Eagles job and Samson Siasia held forth for two games in the qualifiers for the AFCON 2017, Yusuf stepped in as an interim coach for two international friendly matches in Europe at the end of May, which Eagles won.Spokesman of the Committee, Paul Bassey, said after the meeting at the NFF secretariat yesterday that Enugu Rangers gaffer Imama Amapakabo and former Super Eagles’ goalkeeper and skipper Alloy Agu, who served as assistant coach and goalkeeper trainer for the games against Mali and Luxembourg in May, retained their places in the technical crew.The new crew’s immediate challenge is a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania in the first week of September – a dead rubber, but which would serve as ample preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match away to Zambia on October 3.The committee has also recommended to the NFF Board, the appointment of one-time Super Eagles’ assistant coach, Bitrus Bewarang as the new NFF Technical Director.Bewarang, who is president of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association, will replace the late Coach Shaibu Amodu.There is also a recommendation that former Super Eagles’ defender Nduka Ugbade be restored to the Under-17 national team as assistant to Coach Manu Garba.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
