Volume XXXIIINumber 1Page 11 With a variety of shapes and names like dipper, snake, apple, bottle and warted, gourds can add a fascinating aspect to a garden.Gourds were one of the first plants domesticated by man and were used as utensils as early as 2,400 B.C. Now they’re typically dried, eaten or used as decoration.More people are familiar with the white flowers and dried hollow gourds of the Lagenaria siceraria species. The mature fruit are not generally hurt by light frost or cold and are thin-shelled. They can be dried to an almost empty shell.The vegetable sponge gourd is quite popular as well. There are two species of Luffa gourds. The ridged luffa is a long, club-shaped sponge that is quite fibrous and less appealing. The smooth luffa is also called a rag gourd or dishcloth gourd. Both of these can be eaten as immature fruit.Gourds of the Cucurbita species all have yellow flowers, and most are inedible. They are easily damaged by frost, have a thick shell and are difficult to cure. The three species of these gourds include varieties such as the egg, apple and bicolor pear gourds, the Turk’s Turban and the Malabar melon. Most gourd names describe the general shape or appearance of its fruit. However, seeds from the same fruit may produce many different types of gourds. Because of this, gourds are often sold as packages of mixed shapes. Gourds are tender annuals and easily damaged by frost. Do not plant seed until the soil temperature reaches at least 70 F. Planting dates range from mid-March through July, with earlier planting in south Georgia. Late May to early June is an optimum time to plant in the northern part of the state where the growing season is the shortest. Most gourds require a growing season of 80 to 130 days depending on the variety. Trellising works well with gourds to keep fruit cleaner and vines healthier.Cucurbita gourds have vines that reach 12-15 feet while Lagenaria vines may be 20-30 feet long. Gourd seeds should be planted about an inch deep. Plant Cucurbita types about 2-4 feet apart in rows 6-8 feet apart. Plant Luffa types in similar rows but with only 12-18 inches between plants. Plant Lageneria gourds in rows 10-15 feet apart with plants 6-8 feet apart in the row. Gourds need full sunlight and a well-drained soil. They are not drought tolerant and require over an inch of moisture per week during peak development.Harvest Cucurbita gourds at full maturity but before frost. Lagenaria and Luffa gourds can be harvested after frost and preferably after the vines have died down. They will turn from a green to brown color as they dry. Luffa gourds should be left on the vine until they turn brown.Gourds should be mature and free from injury and decay when placed in storage. They must be kept dry. Storage areas should have good air circulation. Curing at 80 F to 85 F and 80 percent to 85 percent relative humidity for seven to 10 days for thin-shelled gourds and two to three weeks for fleshy gourds is recommended. Large bottle gourds can take up to six months to cure.Thin-shelled gourds are fully cured when the seeds rattle inside. Decorative gourds also can use a protective coating of paste wax and a soft buffing. This can increase their shelf life by four to six months. By Terry KelleyUniversity of Georgia

Photo: ZAG In accordance with the provisions of the Ordinance on Airport Opening Hours, which allows the airport operator, due to circumstances caused by the coronavirus pandemic, to determine a different opening time, working hours are changed at the airports of Split, Zadar, Pula and Osijek. Following the measures adopted due to the coronavirus pandemic in Croatia and the decline in airport traffic, the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure gave its consent to change the work, ie the openness of airports in Croatia. The decision to change the working hours of airports is valid until 19 April 2020 with the possibility of extension. Franjo Tuđman Airport is closed from March 14, 2020 from 00:00 to 05:30, while Dubrovnik Airport is closed for civil traffic until April 15.04.2020, XNUMX. due to preventive measures to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. Airport opening hours until April 19, 2020. Also, given that the working hours of Franjo Tuđman Airport were previously shortened and the closure of Dubrovnik Airport due to the outbreak of coronavirus, these changes in the working hours of other airports in Croatia have become necessary. The main reasons for part-time work are the dramatic drop in traffic, in fact the almost non-existent passenger traffic and the obligation to apply measures to limit the number of necessary employees at airports. All airports that have currently changed opening hours will be ready to open in case of extraordinary needs or circumstances.
5/81 Moray St, New Farm has sold for $6.5 million.NEW FARM’S property market is chalking up the big deals with millions worth of properties changing hands in a record breaking unit sale.The already popular market has had a surge of interest with a record breaking $6.5 million unit sale on the weekend.The three-bedroom apartment at 5/81 Moray St, in the riverfront Aquila building, was listed through Brett Greensill of LJ Hooker New Farm.CoreLogic records reveal the previous record unit price in New Farm was held by a unit in the same building which sold for $6.2 million in 2009.The other top sale was an apartment at 10/170 Bowen Tce which sold for $6.15 million in 2017.5/81 Moray St, New Farm has amazing city and river views.Mr Greensill said while there appeared to be a lot of negative sentiment about the unit market at the moment, but riverfront was a whole different category.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoA new economic sentiment tracker by finder.com.au which surveyed industry experts revealed this week that the majority of experts felt the Brisbane apartment market was the most oversupplied.Plenty to look at from 5/81 Moray St, New Farm.Insights Manager at finder.com.au, Graham Cooke said excess stock could dampen price growth so investors should ensure they bought close to the CBD and good public transport.But Mr Greensill talk of an oversupplied unit market related more to the investment market and not the owner occupier market, which was performing well, particularly units in prime locations.Inside the luxury top selling unit at New Farm.“People talk about the apartment market, but the reality is that the river front apartment market is the same market as the riverfront housing market,’’ he said.Demand continued to be strong for both, as evidenced by this sale.The three-bedroom apartment was sold to an owner occupier who was downsizing from a house in Hamilton.The former owner had bought a house in New Farm.
The inquiry is a joint effort by the UK parliament’s Work and Pensions and Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy committees. In today’s session, the seventh, politicians questioned institutional investors about their investments in and engagement with the company.Amra Balic, head of BlackRock’s investment stewardship team for the EMEA region, also gave evidence.Balic explained to the committee members that BlackRock sold shares in Carillion when falls in the share price and the suspension of dividends meant it fell out of certain indices. On the active management side BlackRock did not hold Carillion shares because of concerns about the company, she said.BlackRock previously confirmed that it held long and short positions in Carillion, the majority of which were in long-only index-tracking portfolios.Balic said BlackRock was doubling the size of its global stewardship teams to 60, and at this point in time did not feel the need to change its stewardship process.Passive investors have been accused of being poor stewards and many have been being making a concerted effort to dispel this perception, stepping up their communication about their stewardship activity and increasing dedicated resources.In a recent FT interview George Walker, chairman and CEO of employee-owned manager Neuberger Berman, said he was “frustrated that the big passive guys are, at least in the press, stealing the stewardship mantle”.Investment research firm Morningstar last year said that index-tracking managers such as BlackRock were increasingly taking an active role in the oversight of investee companies and that passive investing did not lead to an abdication of stewardship responsibilities. The Financial Conduct Authority, the UK’s regulator, will later this year launch a consultation on its Stewardship Code for investors. Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) is looking “to beef up” its stewardship effort, its global head of stewardship and ESG investing told a parliamentary inquiry into the high-profile collapse of Carillion.Euan Stirling told politicians ASI was looking to apply stewardship to all its investment teams in addition to having a strong central stewardship function.“We’ll be able to be even more nosy than in the past,” he said.Earlier in the hearing Stirling said that company management teams were “well-drilled” in how to present a case for investing, and that asset managers’ job was to “scratch the surface” to find out more.
The Independent 22 May 2015Terminally ill patients must be granted the right to spend their last days at home, leading charities and a former health minister have said, in light of a harrowing report that lays bare the damage done by poor care at the end of life. The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman’s report published today details some of the worst cases investigated by the watchdog in the past four years.It has led to renewed calls for the Government to introduce free social care at home at the end of life – sparing dying people from ending their days in hospital, often without specialist palliative care support.Families seeking free care for a dying relative currently face a complex process of means-testing. In a recent survey of attitudes to dying, two-thirds of those questioned said they would prefer to end their life at home, but the UK still has some of the highest rates of hospital death among older people in Europe.It is widely accepted that hospital wards are rarely the best place for a patient, once it is clear that they are dying. However, more than half of deaths still occur in hospital.http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/terminally-ill-patients-should-be-given-the-right-to-die-at-home-says-harrowing-report-10262040.html
