Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest American beech trees are dying in northeast Ohio and beyond. An Ohio State University study aims to figure out why.The study is looking into the cause of beech leaf disease, which was first found in Lake County in 2012 and has since spread to nine other counties in Ohio, eight in Pennsylvania, one in New York and five in Ontario.Young trees seem to be particularly susceptible to the disease, which initially causes dark stripes to appear on leaves, then deforms the leaves. Eventually the disease can kill the trees.“There’s no similar forest tree disease that we are aware of anywhere,” said Enrico Bonello, a professor of plant pathology in Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), who oversees the study. “It’s really a black box.”Working under Bonello’s supervision, doctoral graduate student Carrie Ewing is comparing the genes of microorganisms present in leaves that have symptoms of beech tree disease and those that do not, hoping to identify the microorganisms that are uniquely associated with beech leaf disease. She’s trying to determine whether the mystery microorganisms causing the disease are viruses, fungi, bacteria, phytoplasmas or nematodes. Phytoplasmas are bacteria without cell walls. Nematodes are microscopic worms.“We are comparing huge amounts of data, kind of a shotgun approach,” Bonello said. “It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack by comparing various haystacks.”If the infected plants have genetic material from a specific microorganism that the uninfected plants don’t have, Ewing then can zero in on the suspected pathogen and inoculate healthy trees with it in an attempt to prove that the pathogen is the cause of beech leaf disease. Ewing expects to have study results by this summer.Meanwhile, the U.S. Forest Service and researchers with Lake County’s Holden Arboretum in Kirtland are conducting a separate study on potential causes of the disease. They are looking into whether nematodes found two years ago on infected beech leaves are causing the disease or if they were just present on infected leaves.Ohio has 17 million American beech trees, and many of them in northeast Ohio, particularly along or near Lake Erie, are afflicted with the disease, Bonello said.The disease was first reported on American beech trees, the only beech trees native to North America, but similar symptoms have been found on European beech and Oriental beech trees in nurseries in Lake County, where beech leaf disease was first found.“That suggests other species are susceptible,” Bonello said. “So there’s potential for the disease to spread worldwide in the northern hemisphere.”

File PhotoMalnutrition, poor sanitary conditions and diseases in refugee settlements is potentially catastrophic for Rohingya children who have fled Myanmar, UNICEF warns.It has found many children both in camps and among new arrivals ‘severely acutely malnourished’.”Some children are close to death by the time they make it across the border,” the UN body said in a news release issued simultaneously from Geneve, New York and Dhaka on Friday.”We are working to get a clear understanding on the extent of acute malnutrition among Rohingya child refugees,” it said.UNICEF mentioned that a nutrition survey is underway which will provide data in November.However, according to its screening at the border on 16-18 October, 33 out of 340 children screed, were found to be severely acutely malnourished. Its purpose was to identify children who needed immediate, life-saving treatment, UNICEF said.Screening conducted on sick children who were brought to a Medecins Sans Frontieres clinic reportedly found 14 severely acutely malnourished cases among 103 children.So far, UNICEF and partners had screened 59,604 children among refugees who have taken shelter in Bangladesh since 25 August, and identified 1,970 as severely acutely malnourished , and 6,971 as moderately acutely malnourished.These numbers roughly correspond to the pre-crisis malnutrition rates – which were already above the emergency threshold – 21.2 perr cent global acute malnutrition and 3.6 per cent severe acute malnutrition, according to a survey conducted in May 2017 in makeshift settlements.In Myanmar’s Rakhine state, malnutrition rates in Maungdaw and Buthidaung townships, where the vast majority of refugees come from, were also already above emergency thresholds.”Since 25 August, we have had to stop treating 4,000 children with severe acute malnutrition in northern Rakhine because we have had no access,” UNICEF said.
By The Associated PressPHILADELPHIA (AP) — A portrait long thought to be of George Washington’s enslaved chef, who cooked for the former president at Mount Vernon and Philadelphia before escaping, is actually not of Hercules, and isn’t even of a chef, art experts concluded after a two-year study.Experts who gathered in 2017 at Mount Vernon, Washington’s Virginia plantation, unanimously agree the 18th-century portrait believed to be of Hercules wearing a chef’s toque is not actually of the man, Philly.com reported Friday. The findings are now public.The portrait at question, until recently, believed to be of George Washington’s cook, Hercules. (Courtesy Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid)“There is a real sense of loss there. It’s such a powerful portrait,” Mount Vernon senior curator Susan P. Schoelwer told Philly.com.Hercules had cooked for Washington for a number of years before escaping in 1797. He wasn’t heard from again.Schoelwer helped coordinate the gathering to discuss the mystery of “Presumed Portrait of George Washington’s Cook.” The portrait had long been attributed to Gilbert Stuart, best known for his unfinished portrait of Washington. But that also doesn’t appear to be true.Dorinda Evans, a Stuart scholar, said the portrait is “very different from how Stuart would have done it.”The experts agree the painting is from the 1700s and say the subject must be notable if a portrait was commissioned. Experts also said what was thought to be a toque is actually a headdress similar to ones worn in by free Dominicans in other paintings.When journalist and author Ramin Ganeshram, who used the image on the cover of her novel “The General’s Cook,” was told of the experts’ new realization, she couldn’t let it go. Ganeshram is executive director of the Westport Historical Society in Connecticut and gathered information on Hercules, hoping to prove the portrait was of him.Instead, the quest led her to documents about a “Hercules Posey.” Posey is the surname of a previous owner of Washington’ chef. She and her historical society colleague, Sara Krasne, who is a trained genealogist, recovered a death notice from New York City. They believe Hercules was left behind at a Manhattan cemetery when bodies were moved to Brooklyn in the early 1800s. He’s most likely still buried under what is now sidewalk, they said. Two historians agree.“I would totally feel comfortable speculating that it was him,” said Erica Armstrong Dunbar, a history professor at Rutgers University.
