For Sri Lankas pangolins, forests are ideal but rubber farms will do too –

Posted: February 15, 2020 at 4:43 am

COLOMBO A big part of conserving any wildlife species is to conserve its natural habitat. But when that becomes an increasingly difficult task due to human-driven changes in those environments, the next best thing to do is to hold on to those altered habitats.

Thats the surprise finding from a new study on the Indian pangolin (Manis crassicaudata), one of eight species of scaly anteater thats the most trafficked mammal on Earth. The study, set for publication in the March issue of the journal Global Ecology and Conservation, looks at the feeding habits of Indian pangolins in southwest Sri Lanka. It sheds new light on the species dietary composition, and can help better inform pangolin rescue and breeding programs, the authors write.

Our previous work has highlighted that though there is an increase in rescue programs in pangolin abundant areas, there was limited success due to poor availability of literature on their diet, ecology and behavior, co-author Priyan Perera, from the Department of Forestry and Environmental Science at the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and a member of the IUCN SSC Pangolin Specialist Group, told Mongabay.

There is a dearth of knowledge which we have tried to bridge with a series of studies.

Perera has been studying the Indian pangolin since 2013, identifying evolving threats to this elusive and endangered creature. In a 2017 study he reviewed the existing knowledge, threats and research priorities, and in a follow-up study in 2018 looked at pangolins habitat preference in southern Sri Lanka.

This anteater prefers termites

For this study, Perera and his colleagues studied pangolins in the lowland forests and associated habitats of the Yagirala Forest Reserve. They looked at five types of habitats: forests, rubber plantations, cinnamon farms, oil palm plantations, and tea-dominated home gardens. Forests, as expected, emerged as by far the most popular of foraging habitats for the pangolins.

Thats thanks to minimal human activity and the highest availability of the pangolins favorite food: termites (ants are second on the list, despite pangolins commonly being known as anteaters).

The digestibility of the termites seems to be much higher compared to that of ants and other insects consumed by Indian pangolins, the researchers write. They concluded this by comparing the amounts of undigested ant and termite body parts in the pangolins fecal matter.

While the relative digestibility of termites over ants may appear to be a trivial point, the finding is significant for the many organizations involved in the rescue, care and breeding of pangolins for conservation purposes, including those animals saved from the illegal wildlife trade. The artificial diets they tend to be fed in zoos and similar facilities are short on natural feeds such as termites, ants and other insects, which makes rearing pangolins in captivity difficult.

The findings of this study have important implications for the captive rearing and husbandry of Indian pangolins, the researchers write. The information revealed on the dietary composition of Indian pangolins will be useful in the formulation of captive diets.

Long-term conservation planning

The findings are also important for conserving pangolins in the wild or at the very least, conserving the types of habitats they prefer to forage in. And after forests, the next best type of habitat is rubber plantations, the study shows. Unlike in stringently maintained tea plantations, rubber plantations accumulate a thick layer of leaf litter on the ground, which provides an ideal environment for the termites that pangolins feed on.

However, fluctuating market prices for natural rubber mean that many of these farms are being converted to more lucrative oil palm plantations one of the least-preferred foraging grounds for pangolins, according to the study. With an ever-shrinking area of natural forest the ideal habitat for the species conservation policy should include maintaining swaths of rubber plantations and similarly preferred foraging habitats, the researchers suggest.

The study further highlights the importance of human-modified habitats for the survival of Indian pangolins in changing landscapes, they write. Such habitats should be included in long-term conservation planning of Indian pangolins.

Hunting for domestic meat consumption has long been the main threat to Sri Lankas pangolins, but a new and fast-growing threat comes from the illegal international trade in pangolin scales, used in Chinese traditional medicine.

Project of Fayette County students being sent to International Space Station – WKYT

Posted: at 4:43 am

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Two freshman students in Fayette County have been selected for a once in a lifetime opportunity.

They have designed a research project deemed worthy of being sent to the International Space Station.

It's a dream come true for any space enthusiast, but for Rosalie Huff, of Fredrick Douglass High School, and Kiera Fehr, of Henry Clay High School, they're over the moon after their research project was selected to launch to the International Space Station.

"It's so exciting to think that even being a freshman, I could still put something on the International Space Station that may make a difference," Fehr said.

Their project is just as exciting, they plan to send termites to space, which after researching, seems to be a first.

"They produce methane, which you know is a greenhouse gas, so we're trying to measure if microgravity affects the production of methane," Huff said.

They're also hoping to even relate the research back to the impacts it brings here on Earth.

"With the readings that we get, we may be able to apply it to our atmosphere and t could possibly give us insight on solutions or things like that," Fehr said.

To make sure Kiera and Rosalie's project is successful aboard the International Space Station, local company Space Tango is designing a cube lab, which will house everything needed for research inside of it.

"We have to take all of those components, all of the cameras, all of the imaging capabilities and condense that down to really miniaturized and automate the entire process," said Gentry Barnett, Tango Lab Program Manager at Space Tango.

While it will be about a six-month process before launch day, this opportunity is nevertheless a big step for these girls.

What's to come could launch these girls' dreams for the future.

Embrace the crunch: Bug Buffet draws curious and converts – The Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Posted: at 4:43 am

After munching chips and brownies made with crickets, Ian Sofie pronounced them to be quite tasty.

You need to get over the its a bug part, Sofie said. Once you do that, its fun.

The Manhattan High School senior came with his food class to learn about eating insects at Montana State Universitys 32nd annual Bug Buffet.

Hundreds of college students, staff and community members waited in line to sample salsa and chips made with mealworms and termites, hazelnut cricket bread with black ant butter, and Bombyx pupa and mealworm wild rice.

Entomology professor Florence Dunkel has organized the Bug Buffet for decades, growing the event from a single burner, pound of butter and bunch of crickets, to a large event for hundreds in the Strand Union Building. She brings the passion of an evangelist to promoting edible insects.

It may seem a quirky novelty to Americans, but to millions of people around the world, eating insects means the difference between life and starvation, said MSU President Waded Cruzado.

When Americans and Europeans tell people in Africa to wage war on locusts, instead of treating them as a food source, were doing them an incredible disservice, Dunkel said, contributing to poverty and child malnutrition.

At this moment people of European descent are waging war on a food source these people depend on, she said.

We also need to accept insects as food for ourselves, Dunkel argued, because theyre far more sustainable than beef or other traditional meats, using up far less land and far less water and producing far less greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.

Besides, insects are delicious, Dunkel said. I like grasshoppers sauted in butter, put on a salad.

Cruzado declared that MSU is a national leader not only in scientific research, undergraduate education and engagement with the larger world, but also in entomophagy the practice of eating insects.

Chef Joseph Yoon of Brooklyn Bugs presented Cruzado with a double chocolate mealworm ganache cake.

Its awesome, said MSU music education student Lauren Vandette, standing in line for more cricket dish samples. Once you get over the stigma in your head of eating bugs, then its really good. I like that theyre crispy.

Not everyone was sold, however. One girl told her friends, No my stomach Im leaving.

Yet enough Americans are game to try it that new insect-snack businesses are emerging.

Manchurian scorpions are one of our best sellers, said Bill Broadbent of Lewiston, Maine, owner of EntoSense Cricket Snacks. The snacks come in garlic, orange or white cheddar flavors.

Wolfgang Puck has bought from us, Broadbent said. The Seattle Mariners have grasshoppers from Mexico they sell out every game.

Kathy Rolin, one of the founders of Cowboy Cricket Farms, was selling snack bags of whole roasted crickets. Embrace the Crunch, read her T-shirt.

Cowboy Cricket Farms has a kitchen in Belgrade and just opened a new shop in Bozeman on Bridger Canyon Drive, to educate kids and families. Rolin said she was a nutrition student at MSU and attended the Bug Buffet four years ago, and that led to starting Cowboy Cricket Farms.

It was really inspiring, she said.

Leaders in a global effort to promote eating insects came for the Bug Buffet and for Thursdays all-day academic conference at the Museum of the Rockies.

Professor Arnold van Huis of the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands said he was working in Africa 25 years ago, trying to teach farmers biological control of insects, when someone told him that the women can earn more money collecting insects from the millet than from the grain itself.

I felt ashamed, van Huis said. They know we consider it kind of primitive to eat insects, he said. He worked for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and in 2013 wrote a book on Edible Insects that has been downloaded millions of times worldwide. Its a game changer.

Sunny Ramaswamy, president of the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and an entomologist, said a billion people go hungry each year, millions take drugs for heart disease and diabetes, and were facing climate change. Adding insects to our diet could help with all three problems.

Insects offer a real exciting ability to meet the nutritional needs of our burgeoning population, Ramaswamy said.

Dunkel thanked everyone for coming to the Bug Buffet and declared, Bon apptit!

Rust-Oleum Sued After Product Fails To Work As Advertised – The Ring of Fire Network – The Ring of Fire Network

Posted: at 4:43 am

Rust-Oleum Corporation has been hit with a class action lawsuit by consumers who claim that the companys Restore products, specifically Deck Start Wood Primer, Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain and Restore 4X Deck Coat, do not work as advertised. Plaintiff Allen Garrard says Restore products suffer from more chipping, peeling and flaking than other comparable products. Ring of Fires Farron Cousins discusses this with Scott Hardy, the President of Top Class Actions.


*This transcript was generated by a third-party transcription software company, so please excuse any typos.

Farron Cousins:Your home is likely going to be the biggest investment that you ever make. And whenever youre doing a home improvement project or making repairs, you want to make sure that you do the best possible job or you hire the best possible people with the best possible products to make sure you dont have to go back and redo that job in a few weeks, months or even a couple of years. But unfortunately some of the products out there are far inferior to others on the market and consumers are getting scammed. And Im joined now by Scott Hardy with Top Class Actions to tell us about one of these scams were finding out about now and Scott, this is Rust-Oleum who has a line of products called Restore. And these hugely expensive products Rust-Oleum puts out are supposed to protect your deck, right? Its, its kinda like the, the wood protectors you see commercials for in between football games in the fall. And the people who filed this lawsuit, the plaintiffs, they say, listen, I spent hundreds of dollars on this and it is not doing anything that it was advertised to do. So, so tell us what, what happened.

Scott Hardy:Sure. So this class action alleges that Rust-Oleums Deck Start Wood Primer, Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain and Restore 4X Deck Coats, do not live up to their expectations. Dont actually protect your deck for years and years as is promised and, you know, they, they fail. So this plaintiff spent more than $500 went into his local hardware store in 2017 and then took care of his deck. You know, applied all of the, the, the deck code as prescribed by the manufacturer. But lo and behold, this is from September, just by May, 2018 he noticed that the Restore paint was detaching from numerous spots in the deck and had to be repaired. And so by January, 2019 he saw, you know, the paint detaching, peeling, flaking, lots of issues, which is why they filed this class action. They said, listen, you know, I cant buy this stuff and then a year or not even a year later, start, start seeing problems when you invest all this money and time in trying to take care of your beautiful wooden deck. Because of course, its a wooden deck. If you dont take care of it, it will fall apart and youll have to be replaced. So you could be stuck with tens of thousands of dollars in damage.

Farron Cousins:Right, and I think thats a very important thing to point out with this particular case is its not just, oh no, my product didnt work and I had to go back and redo it and I spent a couple of hundred dollars on this. Its no, if this product fails to do what its supposed to do, this can lead to much bigger problems. It can lead to, you know, rotting of the wood. It can allow other kinds of, you know, wood funguss, termites, whatever it is. Thats why you have to protect it. This is something that is out in the elements and exposed to these kinds of things every single day. And this man did exactly what he is supposed to do to protect his property with this product. Used it as directed. The product did not live up to the claims that it had made. Not just expectations, but this product said it will do X, Y, and Z and it did not do X, Y, or Z. And thats why this man has filed this suit.

Scott Hardy:Exactly.

Farron Cousins:And I think hes got a very valid claim here.

Scott Hardy:It sure looks like it and this class action is very eerily similar to a settlement that was made in 2016. In that settlement you had Rust-Oleum and their deck products that were included in a massive settlement. So if you had painting, peeling, flaking and you had to get your deck replaced, repainted, you could actually get reimbursed for those expenses. That one included Restore products Deck & Concrete Restore, Deck Restore, Concrete Restore or Restore 10X. It did not include Restore 10X Advanced, Restore 4X or other Restore products which are included in this class action. So, its interesting that we see a class action settled, you know, four years ago and paid out and, you know, four years later we see very, very similar problems with the manufacturer and well likely see a similar outcome. So if you had, if you used those Rust-Oleum products on your deck and you had to replace it, repair it, find those receipts, do that research now because you could get hundreds if not thousands of dollars back in your pocket once this eventually settles.

Farron Cousins:You know, its also really disappointing to hear about that because obviously, okay, this company was, was put on notice theres problems with your products. You have to do something about this or youre going to pay out lots of money and here we are four years later, the company didnt do anything about it, at least with their other products. They thought, okay, well these arent being sued. We can just leave them as they are, when in fact the company could have fixed this years ago and then failed to do it. Not exactly building up a good reputation with consumers by knowing you have a problem and then failing to do anything about it until youre forced to do something about it. To me, you know, that, that doesnt create a lot of faith in the company, does it?

Scott Hardy:No, you know, Rust-Oleum is a trusted brand. You and I talked about Rust-Oleum spray paint. People use it, they trust it from spray paint. So they must think, hey, I can use this right on my deck. It works. They, you know, their spray paint is fantastic. So, you know, we really hope that Rust-Oleum does the right thing, not only pays their customers back and, you know, for any repairs, but they work on the ingredients themselves. So that way people dont have this problem and we dont see another settlement in four years for a new product that they rename or change out.

Farron Cousins:Well, we can certainly hope for that. And for more information about this issue, follow the link in the description of this video, head on over to Top Class Actions and make sure you sign up for their weekly Top Class Actions newsletter. Scott Hardy, president of Top Class Actions, always a pleasure talking to you. Thank you.

Scott Hardy:Youre welcome. Great talk to you, Farron. Thank you.

Whither The Deficit Hawk: Changing Attitudes On Budget Red Ink Among The GOP – NPR

Posted: at 4:43 am

President Trump's proposed budget projects federal deficits until 2035. J. Scott Applewhite/AP hide caption

President Trump's proposed budget projects federal deficits until 2035.

There was a time when congressional Republicans railed against the budget deficit. In recent history, think of the Tea Party movement, whose members called for driving down debt, deficits and government spending.

And President Trump himself, on the campaign trail in 2016, pledged to brighten the nation's fiscal picture, which includes deficits the annual difference between how much the government spends and how much it takes in and the national debt, which is the accumulation of deficits.

But the U.S. deficit has soared, and the budget proposal he unveiled Monday is no match for it.

So where have the GOP deficit hawks gone?

"Retirement, to heaven I hope," says William Hoagland, who served for 25 years helping to shape GOP budget policy in the U.S. Senate. He's now with the Bipartisan Policy Center. "Right now it's not an issue for the American public I think is the problem. We have [a] low unemployment rate, we have low inflation, people don't see what the damages are being caused by these debt and deficits. So, party on."

Trump's fiscal 2018 budget projected that next year's deficit would be $456 billion. But Monday's budget predicts it would be $966 billion under the policies laid out in his latest plan. That budget blueprint projects deficits until 2035.

The budget predicts deficits would come down eventually because of cuts Trump would make to agencies. But, Hoagland says, that's not realistic.

"Getting to reduce the level of debt out there is important," he says. "But quite frankly I think it takes an awful long time to adjust the spending patterns of this country to get to it. And I'm not seeing the leadership out of the White House or out of the Congress to actually take on some of the tough decisions that are necessary to reduce the debt."

On the days when the Tea Party was critical of deficits under the Obama administration

The Tea Party was focusing on that portion of the budget that I think was not the "problem child" for what's creating some of the debt and deficits that we have. And the Tea Party was focusing not on any kind of increasing revenues in fact cutting taxes, not increasing taxes. And so I could never square the circle with the Tea Party that they could actually talk about real reductions in the debt and deficits by the nature of where they were focusing. They were focusing their attention on reducing those things in the government which I consider to be the seed corn of the future such as infrastructure, transportation, science, technology. It's hard, if you're really serious about reducing debts and deficits on the spending side, you have to take on the politically challenging issues that are the mandatory programs [like Social Security and Medicare].

On whether Democrats' argument that Republicans only care about deficits when they're not in power is fair

Well I think it's fair ... today to say that. I don't think it's always been that case, but I think it's fair to say that's the situation today.

On deficit talk in the 2020 presidential election

Interestingly enough, the young mayor from Indiana [former South Bend mayor and democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg] and I'm from Indiana, so a little biased here ... is talking about it as an issue, which I think is important because it's his generation that's going to be impacted most by the fact that this debt and deficit accumulating is a tax on that generation.

On when the U.S. can take steps to curb deficit spending if policymakers are not doing so now

That is the question. I use the analogy that Charles Schultze [the late economist at the Brookings Institution] used to use, which is that it's like termites under the front porch. They're out there, they're working away, this debt and deficits accumulating this is the highest level that we've had in a peacetime period. Those termites are eating away. Someday you're going to step out on that porch and you're going to fall through. It's unclear when that happens. I still believe that's going to happen unless we start addressing it.

The other factor I would say is: Maybe this generation never addresses it, but what it does is it creates more pressure on future generations to pay the taxes or the interest payments on the debt that's accumulated by this current generation. Long after many of the members are gone, it will come ... reducing the growth of this country in the future and putting pressure on ... our children and our grandchildren.

Coronavirus: Pangolins may have spread the disease to humans – Medical News Today

Posted: at 8:47 pm

There are many questions about the novel Coronavirus that remain unanswered, such as how does the virus spread? and where did it originate? Now, Chinese-based researchers say they think the pangolin a scaly, otherwise harmless mammal that eats ants may have spread the virus to humans.

When coronaviruses spread to humans, it is usually via contact with an animal that carries the virus.

Medical News Today has recently published an extensive feature on the new virus, explaining that some of the most common carriers for coronaviruses are bats.

However, bats are unlikely to transmit the virus directly to humans, so, as with most similar viruses such as SARS and MERS an intermediary animal is usually the one responsible. For SARS, this was the civet cat, while dromedaries helped spread MERS.

When contacted by MNT a few days ago, The World Health Organization (WHO) said they did not yet know the specific source of the novel coronavirus.

Researchers in China are studying this but have not yet identified a source, they said at the time.

Only a few days later, researchers Shen Yongyi and Xiao Lihua of South China Agricultural University in Guangzhou announced in a press conference that they might have identified the pangolin as the source of the virus.

The announcement, Pangolin is found as a potential intermediate host of new coronavirus in South China, can be found on the universitys website.

Researchers had shown previously that the new coronavirus is most similar to two other bat viruses; in fact, its genomic similarity to these viruses is 88%, which led scientists to believe that bats carried the new virus.

Now, the two researchers used genomic sequencing to compare the DNA of the new coronavirus in humans with that in animals and found a 99% match with pangolins.

This is an extremely interesting observation. Although we need to see more details, it does make sense as there are now some other data emerging that pangolins carry viruses that are closely related to 2019-nCoV, Edward Holmes, an evolutionary virologist at the University of Sydney, Australia, told the prestigious journal Nature.

This latest discovery will be of great significance for the prevention and control of the origin of the new coronavirus, the Chinese university website states.

Liu Yahong, president of the South China Agricultural University, announced at the conference that they would publish the findings soon to help control the virus.

Pangolins a relative of the armadillo and anteaters are scaly mammals that feed on burrowing insects, such as termites and ants.

Pangolins are also an endangered species, and previous research has shown that the coronavirus is likely responsible for killing a large number of Malayan Pangolins.

In China, the countrys law protects the animals, and selling Pangolins can lead to 10 years in prison. However, the animal is a victim of illegal trafficking in fact, researchers describe it as the most poached and trafficked mammal in the world.

The Chinese use the animals scales to treat conditions such as arthritis, menstrual pain, and skin conditions. People also sell the animals meat and consider it a delicacy.

In their efforts to track down the source of the new coronavirus, researchers have suggested that the infection originated at a seafood and wild animal market in Wuhan, China.

Although officially, this market did not sell pangolins, people may have sold the animals there illegally.
