The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your comment! But the reason why isn’t as bad as you think Smoke from these burns is generally visible for a few hours following the procedure. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The weather conditions under which the burns occur are chosen specifically to help mitigate any harmful pollution, and smoke-sensitive areas are avoided if possible. Please enter your name here Though the length of time the process of targeting specific areas is unknown, officials urge residents to stay diligent and avoid the closed-off areas.While the idea of a controlled burn can be scary, especially when you start seeing large amounts of smoke in the air for seemingly no reason, we can trust that fire and state park officials have these ones under control.You can learn more about the state of current burns and the burn process at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.The weather has certainly been wild in Central Florida lately too, with temperatures dropping so low that iguanas were actually falling out of trees in Miami. By Kirsten Poletis of narcity.comThe world is still reeling from the devastating fires that occurred in Australia, and the scent of smoke is still heavy in the air, especially in Florida. Right now, several Central Florida counties and public parks are burning. In the Orlando area, the thick haze that enveloped the city last week had citizens in a panic, but thankfully the reason behind the burns is not as bad you’d suspect. Cassandra Douglas | NarcityWith over 100 storms a year, Florida is also at high risk for lightning strikes, which can easily cause wildfires with an overabundance of dry vegetation growth.Prescribed fires generally target the areas that get hit by lightning naturally and burn away the ferns and weeds in a safe manner before tragedy can strike.Fire Managers and people known as “Burn Bosses” who prescribe the burns prep and plan extensively to ensure public and firefighter safety during the process.And since the burns take place during the day, wildlife has ample time to escape the area before it directly affects them.Last year in Miami, biologists were even using this controlled burn process to set blaze to rare plants and find out how they would respond under changing environmental conditions. Earlier this month, St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park saw hundreds of acres lit ablaze under controlled burns, which also served as a means of training for aspiring firefighters.The Tampa Bay area also saw a thick haze take over the skies from 3,800-acre burn earlier this week. It was believed that burn occurred in Goethe State Forest.In Orlando, officials reported two burns happening on the east side of Orange County county earlier this week, while a third took place in the Apopka area.What are controlled burns, and are these burns a reason to be concerned about our Florida ecosystems? Not exactly.Known as prescribed burns, they are used year-round by fire experts under specific weather conditions to help restore health to ecosystems that actually depend on fire.These controlled burns are a way to manage overgrowth of vegetation and prevent wildfires from cropping up and overtaking the vast landscape (especially in dry summer months) by burning away the dry flora that could easily catch fire and get out of control.

Courtesy: GoFrogs.comThe TCU soccer team tied with the Iowa State Cyclones 2-2 in overtime to open Big 12 play.The scoring began early with Iowa State senior forward Klasey Medelberg shooting a high shot that went right under the crossbar to give the team the lead in the fifth minute.The Horned Frogs kept the game close until halftime and came out firing in the second half with Messiah Bright scoring her third goal of the season in the 47th minute to tie the game at one.“I know we can battle back,” said head coach Eric Bell. “I know we can be a good team.”Iowa State pulled the lead right back 10 minutes later when sophomore Kassi Ginther scored on a corner kick to give the Cyclones a 2-1 lead.TCU’s 32 total shots, the second time this season they’ve surpassed 30 attempts, payed off in the 68th minute when Yazmeen Ryan tied the game with a penalty kick goal.The game then went to overtime where the Horned Frogs out-shot the Cyclones 8-0 but were unable to get the game winning goal across.“Soccer is an interesting game because you can dominate on the score sheet and still lose or tie the game,” said Bell. “We weren’t as cutthroat as we needed to be from an attacking perspective and we had one too many miscues defensively.”The Horned Frogs still have yet to lose a game at home this season and will look to continue that streak when they take on West Virginia Sunday at 1 p.m.We did show some resiliency, but we didn’t quite get to the peak of the mountain,” said Bell. “We have to be better and hopefully we will be on Sunday.” Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ + posts Board approves tuition freeze, RRI actions but doesn’t act on eligibility issue spurred by Williams Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Settlement reached between TCU, former professor in discrimination lawsuit Thousands of TCU community members receive COVID-19 vaccines as university supply increases ReddIt Facebook Previous articleEquestrian Wins Season Opener, 14-1, Over Texas TechNext articlePatterson: ‘Robinson’s 2018 possesses potential to mirror Andy Dalton’s 2007’ Benton McDonald RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Benton McDonald is a senior journalism and political science double major from Austin, Texas.

EthiopiaAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independence Armed conflictsImprisonedImpunityFreedom of expression Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Reuters cameraman Kumerra Gemechu’s detention without charge in an increasingly fraught climate for journalists in Ethiopia. A Reuters journalist for the past decade, Kumerra was arrested on 24 December in the capital, Addis Ababa, and was formally placed in custody the next day. About ten policemen arrested Kumerra Gemechu at his home, seizing his laptop and several USB sticks, according to his family, who witnessed his arrest. Reuters said the police gave no reason for his arrest and no lawyer was present at the next day’s brief hearing, when a judge ordered him held for a further 14 days to give the police time to investigate.“After freeing the journalists who were in prison when Abiy Ahmed became prime minister in 2018, the Ethiopian authorities are now going into reverse,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “If the current Ethiopian turmoil is used to arrests journalists arbitrarily, all the press freedom progress of the past two years will have just been a vain and ephemeral parenthesis. This journalist, who was arrested for unclear reasons, must be released, along with the journalists who have been held for several weeks.”RSF contacted attorney general Gedion Timothewos but, at the time of writing, he had not responded to our request for an explanation.Journalism is again a dangerous profession in Ethiopia. Torn by ethnic clashes and by open warfare in the northern Tigray region, where the local government no longer recognizes the federal government, Ethiopia is prey to armed clashes and massacres more typical of a civil war, and the situation of journalists has declined dramatically in the past few weeks as a result of the turmoil.Covering the fighting in Tigray has been virtually impossible because of bans on access and cuts in communications networks. As well as being deprived of information, journalists have also been deprived of their freedom. RSF has registered seven arbitrary arrests of journalists in connection with these events since the start of the hostilities two months ago.Some of these reporters have since been released but two Ethiopian Press Agency journalists – Haftu Gebreegziabher and Tsegaye Hadush – and the Oromia Media Network’s Udi Mussa have been held for the past six weeks.Ethiopia is ranked 99th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Masks are mandatory, social distancing protocols are followed, and more frequent cleaning is scheduled, among other measures to limit spread.However, the jump in community cases has found its way into juvenile halls and camps.“I am very concerned with this latest surge,” said Mary Logan, the department’s chief nurse. “We have had a number of youth come in from the community who have tested positive, but thankfully most of the youth have not had any serious symptoms.”Every minor admitted to a county juvenile facility goes immediately into quarantine, is assessed by medical personnel and also tested for the virus, Logan said. If they test positive, they are placed in medical isolation for 10 days.As of last Thursday, 107 minors had tested positive for COVID-19, 40 of them while in probation’s care rather than at admission, according to a weekly department report. That represents roughly 20% of the total population of halls and camps on that date. In addition, there were 120 youth in quarantine due to possible exposure.A total of 360 staff members have tested positive, though more than half of those work in field offices rather than detention facilities.Logan said the positivity rate in facilities was 3.8% as of Monday.Dr. Lello Tesema, director of population health at Correctional Health Services, said most of the transmission comes from staff.“It’s not surprising that (as) we’ve seen a dramatic uptick in community transmission, we’re seeing that reflected in juvenile facilities,” Tesema said.Youth at juvenile halls and camps have access to mental health services, both with staff on site and via virtual videoconferencing. There is a lot of stress, anxiety and apprehension among staff and youth, creating greater demand for those services, according to representatives from the Department of Mental Health.Earlier in the pandemic, the Probation Department was managing family visits outdoors, but visitation has now been suspended under the most recent stay-at-home orders instituted by state and county public health officials.However, youth, even those in quarantine, have access to all other services, including educational programming, college classes, calls with family and recreational activities, according to department officials.In-person activities are held in smaller groups, typically by living unit, and much of the instruction is virtual, with a limited number of teachers and administrators on site.“We’re going to continue for now with our virtual instruction and … our students have connectivity in the classrooms, and now we’re mostly done with connectivity in the living units,” said Los Angeles County Office of Education Chief Educational Programs Officer Maricela Ramirez. “Teachers are providing education to our students on a daily basis.”Technology has resulted in more opportunities and access, a bit of a silver lining of the pandemic. This is true not only in terms of educational tools — telemedicine and virtual access to court hearings has also evolved out of necessity. Online tools have also been a boon to parent engagement, Ramirez said.“We’ve seen some great transformations happen with technology,” Ramirez added, mentioning an all-sites assembly with a guest speaker as one example. “Whatever positive things are happening right now, we are taking note of, we are learning from, and we’ll continue to amplify it to provide access to our students and our families.”One key way to limit the spread of the virus has been to release minors who need not be detained as a matter of public safety. The number of youth in probation facilities was already in decline prior to the pandemic, but has dropped precipitously since then, from 840 minors in custody in March to 458 as of Monday.“That’s about a 45% reduction since the pandemic really hit in late February, early March,” said acting Chief Deputy Tom Faust, who oversees juvenile operations for the county’s Probation Department.And the numbers continue to decrease, falling 9% from Dec. 11 to Dec. 18, according to the Probation Department update.Asked whether the population in youth camps and halls would increase post-pandemic, Probation Deputy Chief Felicia Cotton said the goal would be to continue to limit the number to those who cannot safely be supported in the community. But the numbers now are lower than expected and could tick up slightly post-COVID, she said.Department of Health Services Chief Medical Officer Dr. Margarita Pereyda reminded everyone of the dire state of the county’s hospital system.“The Department of Health Services is under immense stress right now, as is the rest of Los Angeles County,” Pereyda said, pointing to “the lack of intensive care unit beds, the really horrific increase in not only people who are positive, but the terrifying increase in hospitalizations. Our emergency departments are at max capacity.”When the rate of infection is this high, the entire system is affected, including the camps and halls, she added, making a plea for everyone to wear masks and avoid non-household gatherings.“It’s vitally important in the next two to three weeks because there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for the number of hospitalizations that we are experiencing,” Pereyda said.
