Previously, we introduced biotech and pharmaceutical patent eligibility in Taiwan and the United States. Due to the special nature of biomedical inventions, special provisions have been established on the eligibility of biotechnology and pharmaceutical patents, and the criteria for determining eligibility vary from country to country.

In this second part, we continue to present and compare the regulations and practices on the eligibility of biotechnology and pharmaceutical patents in Japan and China, and analyze in more detail the similarities and differences between Taiwan, the United States , Japan and China to provide guidance to applicants. apply for patent protection in these countries.

Japan

(1) Subjects related to biology

Natural substances which are mere discoveries and not creations are subjects which should not be granted. According to Chapter 1, Part 3 of the Japanese Patent Examination Guidelines, artificially isolated microorganisms, genetically modified animals and plants, etc. involve creativity and are therefore patent eligible[1]. However, Article 32 of the Japanese Patent Law provides that inventions applied to human beings are considered contrary to public order or morality and are not patentable.[2]. In addition, according to Chapter 2, Part 7 of the Japanese Patent Examination Guidelines, in order to comply with clearance and support requirements, genetic engineering-related inventions such as gene sequences, proteins and cells , etc must be fully disclosed in the specification. due to the unique complexity of these technical fields[3].

(2) Diagnostic or therapeutic methods

In Japan, it is explicitly stated in Chapter 1, Part 3 of the Patent Examination Guidelines of Japan [4] which corresponds to the industrial applicability [5]in Article 29 of the Japanese Patent Law, that diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical methods for the medical treatment of human beings are legally excluded which do not meet the requirements of industrial applicability and are not therefore not patentable. The critical steps in the Japanese patent examination guidelines and exemplified chart are described below.

Step 1

Step 1 asks if a subject is related to “medical treatment”, i.e.:

(i) a method of surgery on humans;

(ii) a method of therapy of humans; Where

(iii) a method for the diagnosis of man.

If a subject is not related to medical treatment, it is industrially applicable; if a subject is related to medical treatment, proceed to step 2.

2nd step

Step 2 asks if a claim is:

(i) a product (for example, drugs, pharmaceutical compositions or medical devices); Where

(ii) a non-medical method of treatment (eg, Swiss-type claim).

If a claim relates to a non-medical product or method of treatment, it is industrially applicable; otherwise, go to step 3.

Step 3

Step 3 asks if an object matches an exception, i.e.:

(i) a method for controlling the operation of a medical device;

(ii) a method of collecting information from the human body by measuring the structures and functions of body organs; Where

(iii) a method for processing samples isolated from the human body.

If an object belongs to one of the above exceptions, it is industrially applicable; otherwise, it will not be granted.

China

(1) Subjects related to biologyChina

According to Article 25 of Chinese Patent Law, gene sequences, proteins, microorganisms, etc. are not eligible if they occur in natural forms existing in nature. [6]. However, if the isolate is characterized for the first time and industrially applicable, it is an eligible invention. Artificially modified animal or plant cells are generally patentable; however, human germ cells, zygotes, embryos, etc. belong to the human body and therefore are not granted under Article 5 of the Chinese Patent Law [7]. Nevertheless, according to Chapter 1, Part 2 of Chinese Patent Examination Guidelines [8], human embryos that have not undergone development in vivo and within 14 days of fertilization are eligible for patent.

(2) Diagnostic or therapeutic methods.

Diagnostic or therapeutic methods are also subject to legal exclusion under Article 25 of the Chinese Patent Law. [9], and the determination criteria are as follows:

1. object: directed towards a living human or animal body; and

2. immediate objective: to obtain diagnostic results or to treat a disease.

Thus, the diagnostic and therapeutic use of a substance (drugs, cosmetics, etc.) is not eligible.

For example, when the “indissociable” therapeutic effect of a composition is described in the specification, even if the claim is defined as “a method of treating the skin for non-therapeutic purposes, comprising the topical application of the composition …”, she is still ineligible.

Relatively, an in vitro detection method based on isolated samples is patentable. For example, “A method for detecting cellular mitosis in a breast cancer scoring system (to obtain a sample set for training a mitosis identification pattern)” is deemed eligible because the purpose immediate detection is to obtain not diagnostic results but just intermediate results for model training.

Similarly, methods and uses of medical devices and ancillary systems related to treatment are eligible for patents. For example, “A detection method for an intravenous transfusion medical alarm,…” is also considered patentable because the information gathered by the detection is only used to reflect the transfusion status rather than the patient’s condition.

Strategies Suggested by Wisdom

In summary, the eligibility requirements for biotech and pharmaceutical patents in Japan and China are similar to those in Taiwan, but significantly different from those in the United States.

With regard to the invention of specific gene sequences and microorganisms, applications filed in China, Japan or Taiwan are rarely considered ineligible for patent, whereas in the United States, genes and microorganisms organisms are often considered natural products and risk rejection due to subject matter eligibility requirements under 35 USC §101 unless the applicant can prove that the claimed invention was artificially engineered to contain characteristics significantly different from those of the laws of nature.

On the other hand, although there are certain requirements regarding how diagnostic and therapeutic methods can be claimed, they are patentable subject matter in the United States, while they are not patentable subject matter in Japan, China and in Taiwan. It is recommended that applicants overcome this problem by writing the claimed subject matter as a pharmaceutical composition, or rewording the claimed subject matter as a Swiss-type claim, and then limiting it to the method of treatment.

Moreover, if a medicine is known to have a secondary medical use and the applicant drafts the claim as a product with a new use, Japan recognizes the novelty of the medicine; however, under the practices of Taiwan and China, any claim stating a known medicine as object is considered not new because the medicine is already known, i.e. the new use has no contribution to the novelty of the allegation. In addition, biotech case precedents are also useful references that applicants should pay attention to before applying for biotech and pharmaceutical patents.

How to Play Valorant Like a Pro – Tips and Tricks Guide https://twillastinytreasures.com/how-to-play-valorant-like-a-pro-tips-and-tricks-guide/ Wed, 12 Jan 2022 17:17:00 +0000 https://twillastinytreasures.com/how-to-play-valorant-like-a-pro-tips-and-tricks-guide/ As Valorant, a competitive 5v5 shooter developed by Riot Games, has been making waves in the eSports community, it would be nice to have some Valorant tips for new players.

As Valorant, a competitive 5v5 shooter developed by Riot Games, has been making waves in the eSports community, it would be nice to have some Valorant tips for new players. Players can choose from a pool of 15 distinct Agents to play on six different maps in Valorant.

The fun of the game comes from the interaction between players and the unique abilities of the many agents – useful tips for beginners so you can perform at your best in battle.

Beginners in particular need a set of guidelines to help them improve their game in a short period of time. You can take advantage of aimhax hacks to become a pro in the game. Here are some examples:

Customize your preferences

Even though Valiant comes with a default setup that includes crosshairs and sensitivity, chances are these settings won’t work for you.

In Valorant, the first thing a new player should do is figure out what level of sensitivity and reticle they want, among other things, and then adjust those settings accordingly.

scope and purpose

Valorant players, especially those new to the game, tend to aim for the ground when moving around the battlefield. Spending some time practicing at the range will undoubtedly improve your aim as well as your game in general.

Counter-Gunnery

Combating your move with Counter-Strafing is a sophisticated method in Valorant that you can use to your advantage. This allows you to fire your initial shot with pinpoint accuracy even if you’re moving.

This will allow you to hit the target more accurately on your first shot.

Communication

Communication is essential for cooperative play in Valorant, as well as other team games. The lack of communication in most of the lower Elo lobbies has resulted in a disaster in terms of coordination.

Start using your microphone, or at the very least Valorant Comms, as soon as possible.

Recoil control

While weapon sprays can be useful in a variety of situations, newcomers should familiarize themselves with Valorant’s unique weapon recoil patterns to get the most out of them.

Regularly practicing recoil management with your primary gun on the range can go a long way to improving your performance.

Recheck the corners

The majority of beginners in a game are killed due to a lack of understanding of the map. Although Valorant’s levels are quite simple, they include many corners and opponents often hide in corners waiting for a chance to get free kills.

Please don’t give it to them! When flanking or playing on a cover, be sure to look around every corner.

Strategies that have been improved include queues and forging sites.

The game seems to be simple for those new to planting and defusing spikes. However, re-evaluating your ideas now could be very beneficial in the future. Learning post-plant or resume queues for specific agents, such as Viper, can be very useful in the long run.

Another tactic often used by pros is to avoid overcrowding one location and keep their alternatives open. As a result, instead of pushing the team, players can simulate a site with an agent rather than factory from another location after opponents have moved away.

Smokes that only go one way

When playing smoke agents in Valorant, novices can get their hands on individual one-way smokes the same way they can get their hands on molly and walls. This is a fantastic technique for tricking unsuspecting players into taking damage or even death while remaining completely invisible.

Planning the future of the economy

Another major problem that newcomers to Valorant face is their lack of financial planning. While some players can afford expensive guns, others can’t even buy a handgun. It is best if you and your team discuss the economic plan and the strategy simultaneously.

The walls are broken down.

This one is for you if you haven’t made any progress in improving your aim over a long period of time. Wall slams aren’t as bad as they look, and they’re even used intentionally by Specialists in certain situations. After all, getting a few free kills will benefit the game.

Conclusion

Its very important. If you want to learn how to master Valorant, you must first grasp the mechanics of each agent and weapon type. The practice range is a great place to test your aiming skills and feel how the gun reacts when fired. Plus, it’s a great place to practice your skills or warm up before the game starts.

The new mayor thanks Freel for helping Casper get through the pandemic; sees infrastructure funding as an upcoming challenge https://twillastinytreasures.com/the-new-mayor-thanks-freel-for-helping-casper-get-through-the-pandemic-sees-infrastructure-funding-as-an-upcoming-challenge/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 20:41:08 +0000 https://twillastinytreasures.com/the-new-mayor-thanks-freel-for-helping-casper-get-through-the-pandemic-sees-infrastructure-funding-as-an-upcoming-challenge/ CASPER, Wyo. – Ray Pacheco, a member of Casper’s city council, was sworn in as mayor at the first council meeting in 2022, returning to the leadership position after serving as mayor in 2018.

CASPER, Wyo. – Ray Pacheco, a member of Casper’s city council, was sworn in as mayor at the first council meeting in 2022, returning to the leadership position after serving as mayor in 2018.

After taking the oath of office as mayor on Tuesday, January 4, Pacheco thanked fellow Council member Steve Freel for the leadership he provided as mayor. Freel found himself in the mayor’s seat when the COVID-19 pandemic hit Casper and held that position throughout 2020 and 2021 before becoming vice mayor on Tuesday.

“I wanted to thank him for his friendship, for his dedication, his tireless leadership and his steadfastness over the past two years at the helm of this board,” Pacheco said of Freel. “It cannot be overstated that the Vice-Mayor during his two terms as mayor led this council and our community through the most difficult times in recent memory. We are grateful, I am grateful, for your leadership.

Pacheco said he expects there to be challenges for the city in 2022.

“We will face challenges in maintaining and funding our urban infrastructure like our streets, city hall, Ford Wyoming Center, Hogadon, water treatment plant and the list goes on,” said declared Pacheco. “With state funding becoming increasingly unreliable, we will need to find unique and innovative ways to finance these needed urban properties. “

In addition to finding ways to fund infrastructure-related projects, Pacheco said he sees compensation for city employees as a priority the council needs to tackle.

“Most importantly, we will need to find ways to continue to support our municipal employees,” he said. “As we have addressed the wage freeze and wage stagnation, we need to ensure that all employees in the city are compensated fairly and equitably. “

To start the new year, the city has implemented 5% increases for full-time employees and police officers whose salaries have been frozen since the summer of 2020. Although salaries have been thawed, Pacheco said that he thought the board should find other ways to improve. compensation of employees.

“In the next fiscal year, finding funds for cost-of-living adjustments and broader pay increases for our employees should be and must be a priority for this board,” he said.

After highlighting infrastructure funding and employee compensation as some of the issues Casper faces in the coming year, Pacheco said after Tuesday’s meeting that the state’s revenue picture is a web of fund for the challenges facing the city.

“Obviously, we know state funding is limited,” Pacheco said. “It’s been like this for two, three years now, and I don’t know and I don’t see a way to get through this at this point without some tough decisions.”

“I don’t think we can get away with it, obviously, at the state level, but that being said, it also reverberates in all the cities, in the municipalities.”

Pacheco said he believes it is important to have a conversation with state lawmakers representing the Casper region and Natrona County and ask them how they stand up for the local community.

From Pacheco’s perspective, Casper will need to be innovative in finding ways to solve problems like infrastructure finance issues.

Funding, or lack of funding, for street projects is one example of the infrastructure challenges Casper faces. According to a report prepared by Infrastructure Management Services, only 4% of Casper’s roads are rated “excellent” and 13.5% of Casper’s roads are “late,” meaning they are bad or very bad. This study found that the city is expected to spend about $ 3.5 million more per year than it currently does on street maintenance projects.

Other infrastructure needs that city council discussed in 2021 include multi-million dollar upgrades needed at the wastewater treatment plant and an estimated $ 40 million backlog in system repairs. rainy waters. The city also explored how to find funding for a new headquarters of the Casper Police Department that could cost around $ 40 million. Completely addressing the infrastructure of aging buildings could require $ 50 million or more. Overall, city staff highlighted the urgent infrastructure needs of $ 178 million, as the council discussed in February 2021.

To address some of the infrastructure that Casper as well as the Midwest and Evansville face, voters in Natrona County were urged to consider a special-purpose “sixth cent” sales and use tax in November 2021. Voters rejected the proposed tax that would have been used to raise around $ 4.4 million. needed for a pair of infrastructure projects.

One was repairs to a roughly seven-mile stretch of pipe that brings potable water to Edgerton and the Midwest, which city officials say is currently succumbing to corrosion issues. The other was to complete the renovation of Midwest Avenue in downtown Casper from Walnut to Poplar. Street, which is slated to be a major thoroughfare when the new state office building opens on Collins.

Pacheco said that with the failure of the sixth cent, Casper will have to find other ways to fund the completion of the Midwest Avenue renovation.

“We know from conversations that we’re going to have to make cuts elsewhere,” Pacheco said. “[City Manager Carter Napier] made it clear if we are to do these things. It’s not even just the Midwest, but we have a plethora of other streets and I’m just talking about the streets.

“So when I mentioned it in my remarks on infrastructure, our work is going to be cut for us over the next year or so. And so I don’t have an answer yet.

Pacheco said he expects Napier to come up with a tight budget for the city when the time comes to create a new budget this spring and that he expects some of the infrastructure needs facing the city either confronted will likely remain on the back burner.

Pacheco said he understands state lawmakers also face a difficult task in determining how to meet the state’s urgent needs and that he does not envy the position in which they find themselves. find.

“But the point is, if you don’t have an income, what are our options? ” He asked. “… What decisions are they going to have to make to generate income? “

In his comments at Tuesday’s council meeting, Pacheco said he believes city council can show leadership during what he sees as a critical time for the United States.

“I have also come to a greater and deeper understanding of leadership over the past seven years,” said Pacheco. “Leadership is not always right. To be a true leader is to listen, listen and listen. And fully understand the views of others, even when you strongly disagree.

“You see, we have come to a turning point in this country and it is a turning point that has to start with this council where we have to lead with courage, knowing that we will not always agree and when we are not to okay, we can walk away from this dias by seeing you with dignity and respect. This coming year I challenge this council to find ways to be examples of that courage, to recognize humanity in others, to lead with compassion, understanding and hope. There are many young people in this chamber tonight. I sincerely hope that we can show these young people how government can work together for the betterment of this great community.

For his part, Freel said after being sworn in as deputy mayor that he appreciated the support he had received from former deputy mayor Khrystyn Lutz and Pacheco during his two years as mayor. . Freel said he also appreciated the level of research and thoughtfulness of city council members.

“I don’t think I’ve seen a better session tip that takes longer to get to the bottom of the issues and I 100% appreciate it,” Freel said. “… I appreciate it and appreciate being able to take on this leadership role as vice-mayor for this past year, so thank you.”

The mayor and vice-mayor of Casper are chosen from the members of the city council by vote of the members of the city council. Pacheco and Freel were provisionally elected by their peers to leadership positions in the board’s survey vote in November 2020. The board confirmed the results of the sample vote in a formal vote at Tuesday’s meeting.

The Town of Casper operates under the “council-manager” style of municipal government. The mayor holds more power in a town like Cheyenne, which operates under the “Mayor Council” style of government, than in Casper.

In Casper, the mayor is responsible for leading city council meetings and issuing proclamations on behalf of the city, but has no more formal power than other council members. The Mayor of Casper has a certain symbolic power and is invited to attend and speak at community events.

In Cheyenne, by comparison, the mayor is elected by the voters and serves as the city’s general manager. There, the mayor has the power to sign ordinances, appoint department directors and oversee the day-to-day operations of the city, as BallotPedia explains. The mayor of Cheyenne also has veto power over city council actions.

In Casper, the mayor has none of the specific powers above. Under the “Council-Manager” system of government, the city council as a whole shares oversight of general administration and policy and also has the power to collectively establish a budget. The city council also has the power to appoint a city manager to carry out the day-to-day administration of the city. In Casper, the city manager is Carter Napier.

The nine members of Casper’s city council include:

  • Ray Pacheco (mayor)
  • Steve Freel (vice-mayor)
  • Steve cathey
  • Lisa Engebretsen
  • Kyle gamroth
  • Shawn johnson
  • Bruce knell
  • Amber pollock
  • Jai-Ayla Quest

Haven is one of the most interesting maps of the VALUING card pool. Each card has a unique gimmick, and Haven’s third location gimmick perhaps has the greatest effect on overall strategy from a defensive or offensive standpoint.

On paper, a third site should benefit the attacker, as it forces defenders to divide their forces in three ways. On both sides, specific knowledge of the calls on each of the three sites is essential for success on Haven.

Here’s a comprehensive guide to all of the Legends on Haven, specific legends for all three locations, and how to approach each location on defense and offense.

Haven Layout and Basic Legends

Image via Riot Games

Here’s the in-game map for Bind, with most of the base legends listed. However, this map does not include specific teasers for Site A, Site B, or Site C.

Haven A site calls, strategies and tips

Image via Riot Games

Here are the basic captions for the Haven’s A site. Long corridor A leads to the entrance to the site between the flowerpot and the tower, and short corridor A (also known as the sewer) leads to the entrance between the tower and the short pile.

For attackers, a basic strategy is to smoke heaven and enter the site to take out defenders lurking in corners like Flower Pot. Agents with molotov / grenade / AOE abilities like Viper, KAY / O, Astra, or Brimstone can also clear these corners, in addition to other places like Hell and behind A-box. Agents like Omen and Jett can gain the upper hand in positions like Tower and Short Stack, but risk going undercover.

Defenders will be attacked by all smoke and utility attackers will use to gain access to the site. Their best bet is to wait until the tip is planted and push through the fumes, or let the attackers plant and just replay. A defender playing aggressively Long or in the Sewers can gather information and possibly get a free pick to start the turn.

Haven B site calls, strategies and tips

Image via Riot Games

These are the basic captions for B. Unlike other sites, there aren’t as many features you need to know. The only other place not shown is link A which leads to site A and the back of the site which has a locker behind a gong.

Attacking B is difficult, as there is only one entry from the attacking side from the middle, and that is up close with plenty of places for defenders to shoot and retreat. One popular strategy is to smoke the A and C links, wall off the back half of the site, and get a quick plant right in front of the entrance from the middle. The attackers can then retreat to the middle and delay the recovery from there.

Defending B is not too difficult and can be accomplished by a single agent. Keep the mid-to-B connector closed, and attackers will think twice before blindly jumping into the site.

Haven C site calls, strategies and tips

Image via Riot Games

Here are the captions for Site C on Haven. There are multiple spammable surfaces throughout the site, with one defender side entrance, one attack side entry, and a Garage connector.

For attackers, your safest strategy is a two-pronged attack from C Long and Connector. Take control of the garage to access the connector and use fumes or walls to descend C Long until you are right next to the entrance to site C. Use flashes and timing to access site and clear the corners.

For the defensive side, take a look at Long C if it’s not smoked, using C-Box for cover (using Flat as cover prevents you from retreating if necessary). If Long C is smoky, hide while looking at Long C and Connector and wait for it.

Gus Jammalo gives Gene Kemp a haircut, the last of his well-known barber trade. Jammalo says that at 87, it’s time for him to go fishing and spend time with his family.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – The year 2021, the second year of the pandemic, saw a return of community events, devastating fires, abrupt departures, a successful vaccination program, major buildings changing hands downtown and the election of ‘a new, more diverse government, including the city’s first female mayor.

For a woman to finally take the corner job for the first time in North Adams’ 126-year history was already on the cards when nominations closed in July. For the first time, only women could run for mayor: Lynette Bond, Rachel Branch, Aprilynn Carsno and Jennifer Macksey.

The new city council would also innovate with the elections of Michael Obasohan and Ashley Shade. Obasohan would be the first black person elected to the board and Shade the first transgender person.

Although there was a short-lived social media campaign to “oust the incumbents” and calls for papers, the six ballot holders were easily re-elected.

The last two years of the board have been difficult: there have been three presidents in four months, four councilors have resigned and the panel lasted two months with seven members. The first to leave was Robert Moulton Jr. in 2020, but three others stepped down last year, including two board chairmen.

Bryan Sapienza would be elected by the board to replace Hopkins and Harpin (whose name still appeared on the ballot) would be relocated with Obasohan after the election. Peter Oleskiewicz joined the board last year after Moulton left.

The new nine-member board are Jennifer Barbeau, Lisa Blackmer, Keith Bona, Harpin, Obasohan, Oleskiewicz, Sapienza, Shade and Wayne Wilkinson.

COVID-19 Redux

The North Berkshire Regional Vaccination Center opened on January 11 to a full house; on June 17, the very last person vaccinated was discharged at 7:06 p.m.

Between these five to six months, the collaboration organized 40 clinics and administered 24,913 doses of vaccine against the new coronavirus. The North Berkshire clinic was one of three under the Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative and was managed by the North Berkshire Regional Emergency Planning Committee and the Northern Berkshire Emergency Service.

Vaccinations and the decline in cases (at least until the omicron variant hits in the fall) allowed the resumption of favorite community activities with the lifting of the state of emergency on June 15. There was no Memorial Day parade but in-person graduation ceremonies for Drury and McCann High Schools; the celebration of downtown; a mini Motorama; the Neighbors, and the parade of fall foliage.

Burning problems

The city’s new fire chief had to deal with two major fires in no time. Brent Lefebvre was appointed in March as the new fire chief, replacing Stephen Meranti, who retired after 17 years.

The city has experienced two major fires in a month that required help from dozens of fire departments.

In May, a bushfire on East Mountain spread through Clarksburg State Forest and into Williamstown, burning 1,000 acres. More than 120 firefighters from 19 different communities and the state worked to contain it.

Not two weeks later, a fire at George Apkin & Sons was started by a battery spark while a junk car was thrown into a baling unit. It spread to a pile of cars and car parts 100 feet long and two stories high. Dozens of firefighters from as far away as Orange and Northampton brought the massive blaze under control in about 24 hours.

But it would be two house fires earlier in the year that would create a storm of controversy over the condition of the city’s fire hydrants. Broken or missing fire hydrants affected fire control efforts at the Greylock Apartments and on Veazie Street and an audit found around 130 fire candles in various states of disrepair.

City council would approve the mayor’s request to borrow $ 300,000 to solve the problem, but the fire hydrant problem would continue to highlight the infrastructure problems plaguing the city, as Bernard pointed out in his report. state of the city speech in february.

This would include the public security building, a long-standing issue that would become one of the main topics of the mayoral race.

Mohawk Theater

Probably no building has been the subject of as much discussion in the past two years as the long-vacant Mohawk Theater. The structure was declared surplus last year, and in a second request for proposals, an offer was accepted by developer Veselko Buntic to use as an event space for a planned hotel in the adjacent Dowlin block.

Councilor Keith Bona, however, objected to the mayor’s decision to award the below-evaluated offer without council input and requested a reconsideration. A number of residents and State Representative John Barrett III also protested a sale that would abandon the concept of a performing arts theater.

The board, which appeared ready to approve, went at the last minute with a compromise devised by Bona and Councilor Benjamin Lamb to amend the 2019 by-law requiring board approval for any sale and put a decision until January. This would give a contribution to incoming mayor Jennifer Macksey; his inaugural speech looked at the pursuit of the performance hall.

In other public property actions, the council rejected a plan to turn the old Sullivan School into a housing estate; plans for new access and sidewalks to make the area around Brayton School safe for walking will begin next year; and the school committee abandoned plans for a Greylock school project on the advice of the Massachusetts School Building Authority to focus on renovating Brayton to meet the needs of a declining school population.

Business changes

The downtown area has seen many small store openings over the past year, including the Pops General Store on Marshall Street; the expansion of “side stores” at Berkshire Emporium, including Savvy Hive and Crafters Connection; the Bear and Bee bookstore on Holden Street; the Plant Connector and the revamped Secret Stash on Eagle Street; and the relocation of 413 Bistro from Williamstown to Main Street. In the West End, the city’s first marijuana dispensary, Clear Sky, opened as well as the Norad Toy & Candy Co., and on the south side, the opening of Bill’s Sporting Goods on State Street.

The big sale was the Holiday Inn, now Hotel Downstreet, purchased as NA Hotel LLC for $ 4.45 million. The 90-room hotel is now owned by Peregrine Group, a property management company, and will be managed by Main Street Hospitality. There are plans to rejuvenate the 1974 structure over the next year.

People in the news

The largesse of late State Representative Gailanne Cariddi continues to benefit the city more than four years after her death. The final settlement will leave another donation of $ 91,651 to the public library for a total of $ 266,651.56 and $ 109,276.86 for the future bike path for a total of $ 319,276.86.

John “Jack” and Joyce Brooks also left $ 40,000 in the library, in addition to the same amount to their alma mater Drury last year; and $ 1,885 was donated to the high school film and screenwriting course in memory of former high school teacher Drury Francis Merrigan.

But 2021 saw the death of longtime North Adams columnist Joe Manning at the age of 79. Manning first discovered Steeple City 25 years ago and has become a frequent and beloved visitor. The author, historian, genealogist, independent journalist, poet, photographer and songwriter have made the city his “spiritual home”, even though he has never lived there.

The city also lost William “Billy” Evans, a Capitol Police officer killed in the line of duty at the age of 41. The Drury High graduate was in honor in the Capitol Rotunda with services including the President, and was escorted home by officers from many departments. His private service at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Adams was attended by state and federal officials.

Silver Spence, CEO of independent houseplant site Friends or Friends, shared his guide to overwintering houseplants with Express.co.uk, ready for the darker and colder months to come. As the winter months arrive, the plants need water and temperature adjustments. Chills, dry air, and lack of sunlight can all have a huge impact on houseplants this time of year.

Humidity

Humidity is especially important for some houseplants like ferns, monsteras, and spider plants.

Heating in winter means the air is often dry and drafts, which are not ideal conditions for a houseplant.

Owners of indoor plants will need to create a microclimate by regularly increasing the humidity of the plants.

Silver explained, “You can do this by grouping your plants together, placing them on a pebble tray, or purchasing a humidifier that suits your space.

“The most important thing is that they are constantly wet and not just in relays.

“If you can’t humidify for fear of damaging your home, a bell or mini greenhouse / cabinet is ideal.

Heat

Silver said heating is bad for plants, but it can also help.

Cold homes or particularly cool rooms are not ideal for plants, so houseplant owners may need to consider a heating pad.

These can be purchased from reptile stores or online as seed germination material.

Silver added, “Heating pads and lamps will provide the constant warmth that tropical plants need to survive.

“If your heat, humidity, and light are all aligned, your plants can continue to grow through the winter.”

Let’s remember…

Silver said there are two key things houseplant owners should remember when wintering houseplants.

She said, “Plants are living things. Some plants need periods of dormancy and seasonal changes.

“In nature, plants will have wet and dry seasons – they will have a darker winter and a colder, darker night.”

Silver’s top tips:

– Never leave grow lights on 24/7.

– Provide the appropriate amount of water. Lower temperatures and light = less need for water.

– Remember to ventilate the space as this will be crucial for the health of the roots.

Friends or friends is the UK’s number one destination for baby plants.

It’s a small, independent business that brings affordable indoor plants to your doorstep – because plants are friends.

So, you’ve come out of your festive eating coma and are ready to jump in with your head down in 2022. But what can you expect from the world of popular culture over the next 12 months? I have collected a few notable releases from the world of cinema, television and music that fascinate me personally, or at the very least intrigue me. I’ve largely avoided sequels, prequels, and comeback series in favor of new things (although I’ve included some long-awaited returns in the music world).

Sign up for The Guide to Getting the Best Pop Culture Journalism delivered straight to your inbox.

This is by no means an exhaustive list. If there’s nothing here that floats your boat, luckily the Guardian’s culture office has a much more comprehensive look at the highlights of 2022 through film, music, TV, stage, l art and more next week. Keep an eye on theguardian.com for more.

Movie

1. Licorice Pizza
Any Paul Thomas Anderson movie is a must see, but a Paul Thomas Anderson movie set in his spiritual and real home, the San Fernando Valley in California, is a must see. His latest tale, an ancient, twisting, coming-of-age tale of the 70s starring Alana Haim and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s son, Cooper, is an utter delight and possibly the funniest movie PTA has made. Beware of the dynamite cameos of Sean Penn, Bradley Cooper and Tom Waits.
United Kingdom – outside January 1st; United States and Australia – now available

2. Everything everywhere at the same time
The great Michelle Yeoh stars in a wacky sci-fi about a middle-aged woman who is embroiled in a multidimensional quest while trying to pay her taxes, just like you do. It’s from the director duo Daniels (AKA Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), which you may remember from their movie Swiss Army Man, in which another Daniel – Daniel Radcliffe – played a flatulent corpse. Everything Everywhere…, which premiered at the SXSW festival in March, seems to exceed this film in terms of the weirdness, judging by its truly breathtaking trailer.
UK, US, Australia – all to be confirmed

3. The man of the North
Another one dizzying trailer, this one for Robert Eggers’ follow-up to his crazy 19th-century horror, The Lighthouse. The Northman delves deeper into the past, as we head to medieval Iceland for an epic viking revenge. The cast is as stacked as it gets, with Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, and Björk climbing aboard the longship. UK and US – outside April 22; Aus – to be confirmed

4. No
Little is known about Jordan Peele’s upcoming film, other than that it stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yeun, and features a thunderstorm cloud trailing buntings. on his poster. Is that enough to get us to put Nope on a list of the most anticipated movies of the year? Considering the terrifying doubling of his previous hits, Get Out and Us, I would say it does.
United States – released July 22; UK and Australia – to be confirmed

5. The Killers of the Flowering Moon
The elegant and extremely long Irishman sounded like a prolonged goodbye from Martin Scorsese, but here it is with another feature, his 26th. Killers of the Flower Moon sees him reunite with two of his regulars – Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro – in an adaptation of David Grann’s relentlessly readable book about the actual murders of wealthy Osage nation residents in the 1920s in Oklahoma.
UK, US, Australia – to be confirmed

Music

1. Mitski – Laurier Hell
Four years after the brilliant Be the Cowboy, the Japanese-American singer-songwriter returns with an album which, she says, explores the gray area she occupies, not a “role model” but also “not a bad person “. There has always been an irresistible Gothic tinge in her independent torch songs, and Laurel Hell seems poised to take that element further than ever before: her title refers to dense thickets of laurel bushes that produce beautiful flowers and from which he is impossible to escape. “I liked the idea of ​​being stuck in this explosion of flowers and maybe even dying in one of them,” she says.
Released on February 4

2. 100 Gecs – 10,000 Gecs
Truly revolutionary music or infantile noise causing nosebleeds? Wherever you land on the hyperpop duo 100 Gecs (think Sum 41, Aphex Twin, and a 1998 Ministry of Sound compilation trapped together in a tumble dryer), it’s hard to dispute their originality. Their second album, 10000 Gecs – so named because it is “10 times better” than their first 1000 Gecs – promises a bigger sound, suitable for stadiums, but the same “extremely in line”, a humor embracing the culture. meme and a mix of EDM, pop-punk and experimental noise.
To confirm

3. Rosalía – Motomami
How to improve El Mal Querer, the slice of flamenco-pop futurism of 2018 which demolishes the charts and seduces the critics, which has already lodged in the 500 greatest albums of all time of Rolling Stone? Well, if you’re Spanish superstar Rosalía, the answer seems to be to recruit The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, and the Neptunes and promise your most ‘denominational’ album yet. Nina Simone, Bach, reggaeton and Andrei Tarkovsky have all been cited as influences for what is sure to be one of the biggest releases of the year.
To confirm

4. Kendrick Lamar – To be confirmed
Unlike film and television, with their fixed production schedules and concrete releases, music releases tend to be much more difficult to predict, governed by the whims and circumstances of groups and artists. So we don’t to know that Kendrick Lamar’s long-awaited follow-up to Damn will arrive in 2022 but, given indications that something is on the horizon, we have every reason to be optimistic. With its track record, this is really very exciting news.
Release date to be confirmed

5. My bloody Valentine’s Day – to be confirmed
OK, now I’m getting a little greedy. Kevin Shields’ shoegaze pioneers never exactly stuck to a schedule (their latest album, 2013’s mbv, was released 22 years after their previous one, the revolutionary Loveless). But, rumors started the band signed to Domino last year, and Shields promised the Guardian’s Alexis Petridis that a new album – a double album, in fact – was “imminent.” What exactly imminent means in MBV parlance is unclear, but here’s some hope!
Release date to be confirmed

TV

1. Station eleven
A drama about the aftermath of a deadly pandemic, released in the midst of a deadly pandemic, you say? Station Eleven has an awful lot going against it, but – as anyone who has read the Emily St John Mandel novel this series is adapted from – you are unlikely to see a more slyly optimistic portrayal of the post-apocalypse. wherever it is.
UK – January 30, Starzplay; United States – now available, HBO Max; Aus – out now, Stan

2. The after party
Kings of smart, mainstream and big-screen comedy Phil Lord and Chris Miller (the Jump Street movies, The Lego Movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) enter the streaming world with a series of murders and mysteries for Apple TV +. Fittingly, they brought in a row of comedic talent from a murderer, including Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, Ilana Glazer, and, moving from rental agencies in North London to Hollywood, Jamie Demetriou.
January 28, Apple TV +

3. House of the Dragon / Lord of the Rings
It is difficult to choose one of these two gigantic fantastic franchises over the other. House of the Dragon is the Targaryen-focused prequel to a little show called Game of Thrones and, judging by its Trailer, promises the same mix of ultraviolence and spectacular blonde wigs. We still haven’t seen a second of footage from Amazon’s Tolkien TV adaptation – which is so secretive that the entrance to the Writers’ Room was fitted with a fingerprint scanner – but like House of the Dragon is a prequel, set thousands of years before The Hobbit.
The Lord of the Rings launches September 2, Amazon Prime Video; House of the Dragon to be confirmed, Sky Atlantic / Now / HBO Max

4. The curse
Comic book bringing together the creators of two of the funniest British series of recent years, The Curse pairs Murder in Successville’s Tom Davis with Steve Stamp, Allan Mustafa and Hugo Chegwin of People Just Do Nothing. Unlike those supremely silly series, it at least has a veneer of something akin to social commentary: It takes place during the free market boom of the ’80s, as a group of hapless scammers attempt their own impromptu form. of redistribution of wealth.
United Kingdom – to be confirmed, channel 4; international distribution to be confirmed

5. Inside the man
Not the Spike Lee heist film from the mid-2000s, but rather a new drama from Sherlock creator Steven Moffat. Its premise has some of the narrative sleight of hand of Moffat’s old show, following three very different people – a vicar (David Tennant), an American death row inmate (Stanley Tucci), and a trapped math professor. in a cellar – the paths of which cross unexpectedly. Also showing is Lydia West, who starred as Jill in It’s a Sin.
United Kingdom – to be confirmed, BBC One; rest of the world – to be confirmed, Netflix

Pest Patrol: Control of Phragmites with Herbicides and Biological Agents https://twillastinytreasures.com/pest-patrol-control-of-phragmites-with-herbicides-and-biological-agents/ Wed, 29 Dec 2021 17:40:04 +0000 https://twillastinytreasures.com/pest-patrol-control-of-phragmites-with-herbicides-and-biological-agents/ You will have noticed these tall grass swaying in the wind along the roads, especially near the ditches.

You will have noticed these tall grass swaying in the wind along the roads, especially near the ditches. They are probably phragmites, also called common reed (Phragmites australis L.). It is a very widespread weed and one of the most widespread plant species in the world. In North America, there is a native type of Phragmites which has achieved equilibrium with its environment. However, breeds from Europe have been introduced and have become invasive.

Traditionally, the management of Phragmites has involved trimming the stems or even burning, but this has had moderate success. These interventions push back the stands, but they push back. The problem is, Phragmites is a perennial with a large rhizome network. In order for the cutting or engraving to be successful, they should be repeated several times.

When it comes to herbicides, only three active ingredients have Phragmites on their labels and can be used legally. Glyphosate is systemic, non-selective and non-residual. The label indicates that application to Phragmites should be made at rates between 2.0 and 8.0 L / ha (0.8 to 3.2 L / ac). Imazapyr is another non-selective systemic herbicide with residual activity in soil. It is used for general weed control on uncultivated sites and is sold under the names Arsenal Powerline and Habitat Aqua. The third active ingredient is sodium chloride (table salt) in RagWeed Off Herbicide. Sodium chloride acts as a contact herbicide and the label states that two to four applications per year over several years should be made in order to achieve the desirable reduction in Phragmites stands.

We conducted two field trials to assess herbicide treatments that could extend the portfolio beyond standard glyphosate and imazapyr treatments. In 2019, we tested Garlon XRT (triclopyr) which is a product commonly used in vegetation management. While triclopyr performed well initially, it did not provide control throughout the season against glyphosate and the two imazapyr formulations (Table 1 above). Interestingly, imazapyr did not show good control at the start of the season with 43-60 percent lesions visible 30 days after treatment, but it did show long-term efficacy. We have also included two other herbicides with known activity against leathery grasses. Assure II (quizalofop-p-ethyl) is a Group 1 herbicide used in a range of crops and is very effective in controlling annual grasses as well as rhizomatous perennials such as quackgrass. LongRun (flazasulfuron) is a Group 2 vegetation management herbicide that is labeled for the control of many grass species including hare barley, red bentgrass and tall fescue. Surprisingly, none of these products were able to provide acceptable control of Phragmites. The reasons are unknown but could be due to a combination of the large network of thick rhizomes as well as the very dense canopy that this weed produces. The 2020 trial confirmed that triclopyr suppresses phragmites (Table 2 below). As seen previously, glyphosate has been able to ensure perfect control throughout the season.

Evaluation of biological control agents

In collaboration with colleagues from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, and the University of Toronto, we planned to assess the compatibility of warbler-specific biocontrol insects with herbicides. However, the onset of the pandemic in 2020 forced us to readjust. Limited versions of Archanara sp. insects were carried out on a few sites and their survival in winter is monitored. Hope we can expand the scope of the work in the near future.

This work was funded in part by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs as part of an agreement with Canada under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
