As they were enjoying their mother-daughter day, the mother noticed that her daughter’s hands were starting to swell, before realizing that she had touched “the most dangerous plant in the United Kingdom”, Giant Hogweed. , reports the Sun.
“I took my daughter fishing on Sunday, she broke the stem and some of the sap got on her hands,” the mom wrote on the Burringham & Gunness Community Safety Facebook group. “The UV light from the sun activated the chemical in the sap, which severely burned his hands. “
After rushing her daughter to the hospital, the mom learned she had suffered third degree burns. The child was kept in hospital for two and a half days while her burns blisters healed.
“Please be careful walking near rivers,” she warns. “My daughter will be okay, but it will take a long time for her to heal.”
MELBOURNE (Australia) – Pink, hairless, deaf and blind, the young, barely a month old, were the size of a peanut without a shell.
Yet they were a momentous discovery for conservationists who set out through a dense eucalyptus forest in the early morning mist in hopes of finding them.
Some 3,000 years after the tasmanian devils were wiped out on the Australian mainland, seven pups were born earlier this month in their natural range.

“It was very moving,” said Tim Faulkner, president of Aussie Ark, the conservation group that has spearheaded attempts to reestablish demon populations, long after they were wiped out on the continent, probably by Australian wild dogs, known as dingos.
Like the devils themselves, Faulkner said, the project is still in its infancy.
It’s unclear how the animals would behave outside the 400-hectare nature reserve where they were born.
But, he added, the first step was for the demons “reproduce and survive, and they did. “
The baby devils, found in their mothers’ pouches, are a promising sign at a time when conservationists are facing a sharp decline in the number of animals in the only place where they exist in the wild: the island of Tasmania. southern mainland Australia.
The demons are being ravaged by a facial cancer contagious that has reduced the population by more than 90%.
“He’s really aggressive,” Faulkner says.
“His future is really uncertain.”
For decades, scientists have tried to save the devils by developing vaccines, studying the genetic variations that make some of the animals resistant to cancer, and trying to breed a population of uninfected creatures on the continent.
If demons were to re-take root in mainland Australia, the benefits could go beyond rescuing endangered animals.
Conservationists claim that there is evidence that the Tasmanian devil, a carnivorous marsupial with a powerful bite, is effective in reducing stray cats and perhaps even foxes, which have decimated Australia’s indigenous flora and fauna.
Since 2006, Faulkner and his team have moved uninfected demons from Tasmania to New South Wales, where they run a conservation center and sanctuary that houses more than 150 of these animals.
At the end of last year, they released 26 demons, male and female, in the sanctuary, with the aim that, in time, the animals can roam completely free.
The organization does not give the animals food or water, Faulkner said, simulating a natural environment, without the danger of dingoes.
Earlier this month, they went through the bags of two of the released females and found all seven pups.
Tasmanian devils are born after a gestation period of only 21 days, and at first they are blind and no bigger than a grain of rice.
Although the births were an important advance, some scientists warned that raising the animals in conditions close to nature was a long way from surviving in unfenced areas where they were at risk of becoming prey or attacked animals.
“Maintaining a thriving population of devils in the wild is everyone’s goal,” said Andrew Flies, an immunologist at the University of Tasmania who is developing a vaccine to protect Tasmanian devils against cancer.
But, he added, “if the fences are removed, the demons might not be so good.”
Hamish McCallum, a disease ecologist and Tasmanian devil expert at Griffith University in Queensland, said the true test It would be whether the baby demons could survive into adulthood, when they are more likely to become prey to other larger mammals.
He added that even if demons were able to survive in the wild, conservationists could face opposition from farmers, some of whom in Tasmania have claimed that native animals are killing their lambs.
“They are not really in the wild because they are behind a fence,” he said.
“It is a small step in the right direction, but it is only a small initial step.”

“I’ve never seen it so bad.” Whoever says this while walking down Sixth Street in downtown Los Angeles, California, has seen it all in misery. It is Agent Deon Joseph, with two decades of experience patrolling the city’s Central Police Station, located in the middle of the largest concentration of homeless people outdoors in the United States, the neighborhood known as Skid Row.
Official figures agree with Agent Joseph. At least in his time in the neighborhood, it has never been so bad. The situation of the homeless in Los Angeles, which local authorities had already described as an “emergency”, has become a national issue when the latest figures for the phenomenon in the United States were released this month. The number of homeless people has increased 1% in the country, the first increase in seven years.
The dramatic increase in Los Angeles County, with 23% more homelessness in one year to nearly 58,000 people, is self-explanatory for the national figures. If it weren’t for the Los Angeles region, the homeless population would have dropped 1.5%. The numbers have increased throughout the West Coast. Of the seven urban areas with the most homeless people, five are in the Pacific (Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego, San José, and San Francisco).
There are 553,000 homeless people in the United States according to the latest Housing Department census, released in early December. It is 0.17% of the population, a percentage higher than Mexico (0.04%), but lower than Canada (0.44%), the United Kingdom (0.25%) or Sweden (0.36%), according to the latest figures compiled by the OECD. One in five lives in New York or Los Angeles. In absolute numbers, New York City has the most homelessness in the US, with more than 76,000. The difference is that in New York, 90% have a place to spend the night. Three out of four homeless people in Los Angeles do not have a bed in any shelter or temporary solution.
In addition, the difference in weather (the maximum temperature in New York this week has been -5 degrees and in Los Angeles, 26) makes the phenomenon is outdoors, on sidewalks throughout the city. And in Skid Row is where that theater of American misery shows its starkest side. Half of the homeless in the city of Los Angeles are concentrated in the 50 blocks of Skid Row. Detective Harry Bosch, from Michael Connelly’s crime novels, defines it like this: “You cross a street and you are in Calcutta.” As it is.
Officer Deon Joseph is on foot patrols on Sixth Street because the sidewalks cannot be used. They are an amalgam of tents, garbage, junk in which thousands of people live. At times, the smell is foul. Some come up to him to say hello or tell him about their problems. Joseph says that these people have become victims of gangs, who charge for the site on the sidewalks, in cash (up to $ 200 a month) or in services, from drug trafficking to prostitution. In some of these tents, he explains, they have found weapons. The deal is almost in sight. Rapes are common. High-end cars are parked next to unconscious people on the sidewalk whom everyone ignores. Crime in the area “is out of control,” says Joseph, attracted by the drug trade. The agent is very critical of what he considers to be the “no-meddle policy” of the authorities.
In one corner we find Jennifer de León. With practically no teeth, he explains that he is 40 years old and has been living in this corner since 2009 in a store that started small but now occupies about six square meters. Her parents live in Desert Hot Springs, two hours from here. You don’t talk to them. He has been living on a Social Security pension since he was 18 years old, which today amounts to $ 997, and yet he is still on the street. It is simply your life. He ended up here after getting hooked on crack and methamphetamine. He showers in the nearest hostel. If he doesn’t have to go, he relieves himself in a bucket and dumps them out on the street.
Midnight Mission is one of the oldest shelters on Skid Row, founded in 1914. “In the crisis of 29 we served a million meals a year,” explains Joey Weinert, the shelter’s volunteer coordinator. Here they come to eat, but also to spend the night and, if the person manages to stabilize, Midnight Mission provides a temporary housing solution that allows them to rebuild their life. “If you ask for help, there is it,” says Weinert. All Skid Row sidewalk dwellers can eat three meals a day, get clean clothes and access to personal hygiene. “It’s like a homeless Mecca. Here are all the services ”.
The causes of the rise in homelessness are diverse and profound. Weinert cites the rise in drug use, the long-term effects of the economic crisis and also the housing crisis in Los Angeles County, where rising prices are rapidly eroding the middle class. This is the reason most accepted by local authorities, in all the cities of the West Coast. It also ensures that homeless people come from other places, knowing that this life can be led here. “If you are on the street in Chicago at this time of year and they offer you a bus ticket to California, you go.”
The situation has been growing outside the city center for two years. Tents pop up overnight all over Los Angeles. The situation is so evident that this year voters have approved in a referendum twice to raise taxes to raise a total of 4.7 billion dollars in 10 years to build at least 15,000 places in permanent residences for the homeless and the services they need. Last week, the mayor inaugurated the first of those works.
Weinert doesn’t think throwing money at the problem is the solution. “If you give a crack addict a flat, his friends are going to get in there and what you’ve done is set up a safe house for the sale of crack.” You cannot solve the situation of a person who is on the street without first solving the reasons why he is on the street, he explains, especially addiction and mental problems. “Our country does not take care of the poor and the weak.”
The United States, one of the richest countries in the world and the “land of opportunity,” is becoming the champion of inequality. This is the phrase with which the statement of December 15 from Phillip Alston, the United Nations special rapporteur for extreme poverty, begins. Alston ended up on Skid Row, Los Angeles, a two-week trip through California, Alabama, Georgia, West Virginia, Washington DC and Puerto Rico to observe the state of poverty in the richest country in the world. His conclusion is that “the American dream is fast becoming the American mirage.”
The rapporteur cites census figures, according to which 40 million Americans live in poverty and of them 18.5 million in extreme poverty. Alston goes into politics and then goes on to criticize the possible effects of Donald Trump’s tax reform on the poorest. He says the plan “is going to tear off crucial parts of a safety net that was already riddled with holes.”
On the homeless problem, in particular, Alston considers the official figures to be lower than the real ones. The rapporteur criticizes the “criminalization” of poverty due to the arrests for minor crimes of people living on the street. Alston published a preliminary version of his report a week ago. The final version will be published in April.
