The variety of cannabis known as Tangie has tangerine orange-tinged buds. The Maui News was given a tour Wednesday of the Maui Grown Therapies Kula growing and production facilities. — The Maui News / MATTHEW THAYER photo KULA — The Upcountry site where cannabis is cultivated and manufactured for Maui Grown Therapies, Hawaii’s first licensed dispensary, is part James Bond and part Albert Einstein. It is a far cry from growing marijuana in the cane fields or in secret greenhouses under grow lights. Christopher Cole, director of product development, this week took the media for the first time through Maui Grown Therapies’ cloning, vegetation, extraction and manufacturing rooms — each pristine, organized and cataloged to meet biosecurity and legal standards. Up until about six months ago, media were not allowed in such Hawaii facilities, said Teri Freitas Gorman, Maui Grown Therapies director of community relations and patient affairs. An extensive criminal background check, fingerprinting and state approval are all required for the few, if any, visitors approved to enter the heavily secured and surveiled site on 7 acres of Kula farmland. State Department of Health investigat...

5 Key Presentations at the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Annual 2019 Meeting

Here is what I thought were the top five most important take-away presentations from the 2019 Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) annual meeting in late January.  1. Relationship Between Hospital Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (SAVR) Volume and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Outcomes In this timely report, Sameer Hirji, M.D., cardiac surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and colleagues compared in-hospital and one-year in TAVR outcomes among centers according to annual SAVR volume at the same institution. Using Medicare data for more than 65,000 SAVR patients and 40,000 TAVR patients, they showed that SAVR volume at an institution independently predicted TAVR short-term and midterm outcomes.  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) currently requires 20 SAVR operations per year for a continuing TAVR program, but this requirement has recently been the subject of controversy. In the discussion following the presentation, Joseph Bavaria, M.D., co-director, transcatheter valve program and director, thoracic aortic surgery program at Penn Medicine, noted that these timely findings were likely to affect national policy actions governing TAVR i...

Employee’s sweat dripping onto raw beef, moldy onions, close Philadelphia eateries

It’s been another summer of record breaking heat so it should come as no surprise that food service workers — especially those in food trucks — have been operating under some miserable conditions. But sweating into the food, as one Philadelphia health inspector observed, is just gross. Inspectors also came across their fair share of dead mice and bugs, moldy onions and spinach, grease stained ceiling tiles, empty soap dispensers, cluttered sinks and food not held at required temperatures. From Aug. 16 to Aug. 29, Philadelphia health inspectors closed at least 20 facilities for various violations. Inspectors visit nearly 1,000 eateries and food retailers every two weeks. Each inspection is generally regarded as a snapshot in time, and not necessarily a reflection of day-to-day conditions. Most violations were corrected immediately in the presence of an inspector. To look up reports on a specific Philadelphia restaurant, or a Montgomery, Bucks, or Gloucester County eatery, visit philly.com/cleanplates. There were several moldy onions inside of the walk-in cooler; flies and fly strips were found; the food safety person was not present; the slicer had an accumulation of food residue...

MONTEREY —  Some neighbors are expressing worries about what they see as negative impacts of a

MONTEREY —  Some neighbors are expressing worries about what they see as negative impacts of a new stadium project at Monterey High School, impacts that both school district and high school officials say have been addressed or are unfounded. The stadium upgrades are part of a broader improvement project at the high school funded by a school facilities bond overwhelming approved by voters last year. Measure I generated $213 million for school facilities projects in the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District that included athletic facilities. Susan Nine, vice president of the Monte Vista Neighborhood Association and a retired teacher, said Wednesday that their concerns primarily revolve around new stadium lighting and parking next to the Pacific Street school. She referred to the proposed LED lighting on 70- to 80-foot poles as light pollution that would be “trespassing” into the neighborhood. School district Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh said the proposed lighting would generate less light over the neighborhood since they are more accurately directed onto the playing field instead of outside the stadium. The neighborhood association also expressed concerns that the lights wou...

Sustainable Roofing Buyers’ Guide | Earth911.com Sustainable Roofing Buyers’ Guide

For most people, buying a new roof is one of the most important and expensive maintenance decisions for their biggest investment. For many homeowners, the cheapest option is always the default choice while others choose a style they like and leave the details to a contractor. It’s not always easy to find out who makes your roofing material. It can be even harder to find out if they recycle or work to minimize their environmental impact. But the impact of our roofing choices, both on our homes and on the environment, is too great to ignore. We’ve researched roofing materials and manufacturers to make buying an eco-friendly roof easier.

Iceland to Unveil a Plaque Dedicated to Okjökull, the First Glacier Killed By Climate Change

Iceland is home to more than 400 glaciers, but that number no longer includes Okjökull, a glacier that scientists say was “killed” by climate change. One hundred years ago, the glacier covered 15 square kilometers (5.8 square miles) of Ok Mountain, a shield volcano. It’s now just 1 square kilometer (0.62 square miles) in size and less than 15 meters (49 feet) deep, and scientists no longer consider it a glacier. To commemorate the “death” of Okjökull, researchers and glaciologists will unveil a plaque on August 18 at Borgarfjörður, Iceland, to serve as a warning for the future, The Guardian reports. Icelandic author Andri Snaer Magnason wrote the plaque’s ominous words, embossed in Icelandic and English: A Letter to the Future Ok is the first Icelandic glacier to lose its status as a glacier. In the next 200 years all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path. The monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.” The text also notes the highest concentration of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere ever reached: 415 parts per million, a record set in May 2019.
