Hungry? A pop-up resturant sells bugs and insects for lunch


When you’re on-the-go and feeling hungry,
the idea of tucking into some fast food can be appealing. But at a pop up restaurant in Cardiff – the
food on offer may not be that appealing to everyone. On the menu are cricket chocolate chip cookies,
bug blinis, salt and vinegar crickets, locust and scorpion lollipops among some other delights. Deep fried insects are regularly eaten as
street food in places like Bangkok. Local delicacies include crickets and worms
which come in a range of flavours including, salt, cheese, seaweed and barbecue and cost
around 65 pence each. But for the British tongue – it’s safe to
say they’re an acquired taste.

IHU Méditerranée Infection

IHU Méditerranée Infection


The history of Marseille
is marked by medicine and epidemics. Here, most of the
microbes discovered worldwide have been identified.This building presents in a
unique and integrated way patients and
infectious disease specialists, treatment capabilities specific
to ultra contagious diseases.Everything can be done here, from diagnosis to care and
resuscitation, in a single place. We invested more than 25 million Euros
in the purchase of extraordinary technological machines. There are areas
in which we have the best equipment in the world; in microscopy, genetics,
protein, culture, which are unique. We probably have the biggest European laboratories
for growing dangerous microbes. Besides, we have a huge
diagnostic laboratory where we receive more than a million samples per year.
The IHU produces more than 700 international publications a year and a major part
of the scientific output in the field of microbiology and
infectious diseases in France. The building has been designed to ensure
a high level of security. The doors are equipped with card locks,
the premises are under constant video surveillance,
two security agents are present around the clock on site and this security personnel
is in direct contact with the police services through a
RAMSES box.The security of the agents and visitors is also optimized. Areas
marked with red-colored fish on the ground are only accessible to
people in lab coats, while areas marked with green fish
are accessible without specific equipment. In addition, the IHU
holds a unique collection of biological samples, the
freezers in which they are kept are also secured by
card lock in a biobank. With all the techniques of serology,
molecular biology and culture as well as the analyses by MALDI-TOF,
it is possible to identify all the bacteria, viruses, microscopic
fungi and parasites which are are responsible for infections in humans
as well as all the microorganisms that participate in our microbiota.
This diagnostic laboratory is in perfect continuity with the research
platforms, the sequencing platform, the proteomic platform,
the microscopy platform and the culturomics platform,
which is the specificity of our IHU. More than 400 new species have been described
in this laboratory, which has the world’s largest collection of strains. In our insectarium, we have the opportunity to breed a large number
of arthropods, mosquitoes, lice, fleas, ticks and
also bedbugs. These rearing facilities allow us to establish experimental
models and to develop new tools, not only
to identify these arthropods but also to detect if they are
carriers of infectious agents. Here we are in the NSB3 laboratory of the IHU, this laboratory is about 1600 square meters.
Safety measures prevent any pathogen inside the lab from escaping
outside. For this, we have vacuum systems and we are
able to monitor the vacuum inside this laboratory.
The second important aspect is security. It should be noted that in this
laboratory we manipulate potentially very dangerous
microorganisms, for example the bacillus of plague, and we enter the zones according to these authorizations. The IHU has 75 beds for contagious diseases
with traffic corridors to avoid bringing together patients and
visitors. Fighting against nosocomial infections is one of the top priorities of
the IHU Méditerranée infection. Every year, in France, 800,000 patients are infected in hospitals and 10,000 die.
The lack of hand hygiene of health professionals and the misuse
of catheters are largely responsible for this modern times
epidemic. To fight against this threat, we have set up tools
for measuring hand disinfection like Medihandtrace, which are now developed
by a start-up in the IHU. We have a 25-bed
high security isolation unit that we can
gradually activate to treat highly contagious diseases like Ebola.
The unit is equipped with ultrasound imaging which can be used at the patient’s bedside. We take care of children and
adults including those who need resuscitation with our pediatric
colleagues and resuscitator. A mini laboratory of Biosafety level 3 equipped
with the most modern instruments is integrated in this unit. If necessary, we can use
mobile containment units to transport these highly contagious patients. In this completely confined environment and without any risk of propagation, we can
make diagnoses, provide care, even perform autopsies,
which is unique in France. Marseille is a city of travelers,
it is the gateway to the South and the East. We are specialized in the
diseases following the great pilgrimages to Mecca or Touba in Senegal.
We have been specialized in the illnesses of migrant and
homeless populations for more than 20 years. The IHU is the European leader in the surveillance
of the travelers’ diseases. IHU doctors follow more than
2100 HIV-infected patients, and our technical platform, unique in France,
allows for a viral load and CD4 count to be achieved
within two hours. If in doubt, rapid screening can be done in
less than 30 minutes, confirmed in 2 hours if it is positive. The IHU has a teaching mission. It has various infrastructures including an
amphitheater and eight classrooms. Since its creation, it has welcomed more than
1000 trainees, including students in Master 2 and medical sciences PhD.
70% of these students come southern countries.The IHU supports them financially
via gratuities or grants. The IHU has developed 36 patents and allowed the creation of 7 start-ups
in the fields of diagnostic, treatment and prevention.
These startups employ twenty people and the IHU owns 5%. For example, POCRAME develops
a terminal to carry out the whole diagnostic testing of infectious diseases in an isolated environment. Supported by the DGA and the army, Gene & Green TK
develops a spray to decontaminate chemical weapons of war
such as sarin gas, which was recently used in Syria. It also develops
antibacterial bandages for wounded soldiers. Arthrobac is developing a medicine
to eradicate lice effectively . In order to develop
our products, we wanted to get closer to a medical and scientific environment that allow us to develop our solutions.
By being closer to patients and caregivers we were able
to verify the relevance of our developments in a real environment. There are few places where everyone
is present simultaneously, so here you can do anything. We are here for reality and discovery.

When is Termite Season? – Get rid of Termites – Prevent Termites NYC NJ CT


Termite season does not have a set beginning
and end, as termites are active year round. The time period when termites are most visible
through swarms, discarded wings and droppings is during the months of March to November
. In warmer climates, termites remain consistently
active year round. In cooler climates, termites typically are less active during the winter
months (November – February). While termites in these areas may slow down during the holidays,
their continued activity means that they can cause damage at any time. Here are the signs of termites and termite
damage: • Wood shavings or frass near their excavation
sites • Mud tubes or tunnels that extend to the
foundation • Swollen or sagging floors
• Warped doors • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped To learn more about how to get rid of termites

It is neither a stream nor a sandy beach. The place where the cabbage butterfly that looked for the place to lay eggs is different It was a ‘cabbage farm’ nearby.
And ~! Other kids besides you are here
You’ve got a lot! These butterflies are in my field
Go away! This guy!
Go somewhere else! old lady! What are you doing now? Do not you see? I’m chasing butterflies. Ah! I know that.
Why are you chasing a butterfly without any guilt? There is no fault! What do you know? Their larvae eat my crops
It makes you tattered. Then I cannot sell it at the right price and I’ve got nothing left!
Do you understand? She is not wrong.
huh! It is a ‘cabbage worm’ They do nothing but eat crops. She can be angry, too. .
Go away!
Go away! What? What are you doing there? The egg is placed on the back of the cabbage leaf, just like a line. Hey! What are you doing there? Ah! No. nothing… . If you leave this egg here She will take it all away. So that’s the only way. Alley-oop! No! Hey! Why are you picking on someone else’s cabbage? Madame! This cabbage … . How much? Take this to your house and put it in a pot! Hopefully I can figure out the process from eggs to butterflies! I ended up planting cabbages in pots.
I do not think so. Anyway! I’ll check to see if the eggs are safe. The number of eggs attached to cabbage leaves is about 200
It seemed to be lined with yellowish elongated rice grains. You! I’ll take good care of you.
You must grow up to be a butterfly. OK? I carefully observed the eggs of cabbage butterfly.
I took care of them. And in case the larvae are born
To be a fresh food I also took care of cabbage. A few days after that … . Oh~! Today is a refreshing morning! Well, I am happy today
Let’s observe the eggs of cabbage butterfly! What? What is that flying over cabbage? Is it the fly bugs? I made the biggest mistake that day.
Wait a moment ~. The guys who I thought they were fly bugs are.
I’ll move on to the sunshine.
It was nothing other than the egg parasitoids. Egg parasitoids are small insects of about 0.4mm in size, and lay eggs where the eggs of cabbage butterflies are gathered.
It was the guy who parasitized his caterpillar. I did not know it at all, but I found out after the caterpillar had woken up in the eggs of cabbage butterfly. Because of egg parasitoid.
More than half of the dead eggs are not even born as larvae. I’m sorry, guys. If I had known beforehand
It could have been born more than this. Newborn larvae eat the shells of their eggs. After eating the eggshells, the larvae start to eat cabbage leaves in earnest. There’s a guy eating from the edge of the leaf.
There is a guy who eats from the center. It looks like eating food according to eating habits … Because they come from a close place to eat a lot. So let’s find out what they look like.

Insects as a FOOD – URDU


Insects are eaten as food in many countries around the globe In this video I will tell you about different insect eating countries and different insect dishes Subscribe if you are new here Vietnam is considered as one of the biggest insect eating country In this video these Vietnami boys are enjoying insect soup These insects are around 3-4 inch long Here is another video from Vietnam A new insect dish is being prepared Question: Why are these insects used as a food in many countries? Answer: according to science these insects are rich in proteins and other dietary elements Answer: according to science these insects are rich in proteins and other dietary elements This burger looks very yummy and delicious But if someone tell you that this burger is made up of insects You will say No to it Germany and other countries have insect farms Now you will see how these burgers are made First, insects are grinded by a grinder Then spices and salad is added to the mixture Bug burger is ready You are seeing a special kind of flour Which is obtained from the grinding of cricket insects Crickets looks similar to grass hoppers The flour obtained from this insect is used in making biscuits, cakes and other food items Another Question Why is insect eating increasing? The reason is increasing population Increasing population means increasing food demand To fulfill increased food demand Many countries have started eating insects

Protecting yourself from stinging insects

Protecting yourself from stinging insects


CIARA: YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICED THAT THE WARM WEATHER HAS BROUGHT OUT MORE BEES AND OTHER STINGING INSECTS THIS TIME OF YEAR. 22NEWS STORM TEAM METEOROLOGIST ADAM STRZEMPKO IS WORKING FOR YOU WITH HOW TO PREVENT YOURSELF FROM GETTING STUNG. ADAM: BEES, WASPS AND HORNETS ARE A PRETTY COMMON SIGHT RIGHT NOW. CHANCES ARE YOU’VE PROBABLY BEEN SEEING BEES OUT IN YOUR GARDEN. BUT THERE ARE OTHER STINGING INSECTS TO BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEES AND WASPS IS THAT PHYSICALLY BEES ARE GOING TO BE FURRIER LOOKING THEY BOTH HAVE HAIRS ON THEIR BODIES, BEES HAVE BRANCHED HAIRS WHICH MAKE THEM LOOK REALLY FUZZY. ALSO BEES ARE HERBIVORES SO THEY’RE GOING TO FEED ON POLLEN AS A PROTEIN SOURCE WHERE AS WASPS WHICH ARE GOING TO FEED FEED ON INSECTS. HORNETS ARE CAPABLE OF STINGING MULTIPLE TIMES AND IN GENERAL WASPS AND HORNETS TEND TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE IN DEFENDING THEIR NESTS. ADAM: AND IF YOU DO FIND A NEST IN YOUR YARD YOU SHOULD BE CAREFUL REMOVING IT. NATASHA WRIGHT: WEARING PROPER PROTECTIVE GEAR. TREATING THEM AT AN APPROPRIATE TIME OF DAY SO TREATING THEM WHEN THEY’RE ACTIVE IS NOT A GOOD TIME TO TREAT. EARLY, EARLY MORNING OR LATE EVENING IS WHEN THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO BE BACK IN THE COLONIES. IT’S ALSO A GOOD IDEA TO CALL IN A PROFESSIONAL TO TAKE CARE OF THE NEST SO YOU DON’T END UP GETTING HURT. ADAM AND ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK LIKE BEES, YELLOW JACKETS ARE ACTUALLY WASPS.

What is an Epidemic?

What is an Epidemic?


Epidemics and pandemics, are when you get a sudden burst of an infection. It can be a relatively small outbreak. It can be a fairly severe one in a localized area. For example, the Ebola epidemic that hit West Africa a few years ago or it can be massive like the flu pandemic of 1918 This is the centenary year of that epidemic which actually killed somewhere between 50 and 100 million people. Some epidemics are passed on by insects like mosquitoes or fleas. Some are passed on by airborne methods some are passed on by food and water. Some are passed on sexually and some are passed on by touch and depending which of these it is we can do different things to try and control them.

What are Insects?

What are Insects?


[insect sounds] Abby: There are an estimated
10 quintillion insects creeping and crawling
and hopping and flying around the world
at any given time. From ants to beetles
to bees to grasshoppers. And that’s just
an entomologist’s best guess. Insects are very hard
to keep track of. [music] Abby: Some are always hiding
because camouflage is a great way
to defend themselves. Some have a lifecycle
of just 24 hours. And, not every creepy crawly
you encounter is an insect. Let’s become entomologists and study insects
a little closer. [music] Abby: The best way to identify
an insect versus other bugs is by studying their bodies. Insects have three body parts including a head,
a thorax, and an abdomen. And instead of bones
inside their bodies like ours, insects have an exoskeleton
or a hard supportive shell on the outside of their body. Most insects also have
one pair of antennae, two pairs of wings,
and three pairs of legs. Lots of insects are really
helpful to humans, and it’s true that some insects
can be pests, but think about this: Mosquitoes might bite us, but they make a delicious meal
for lots of other creatures. A bee could sting you
if you really bother it. But they are also pollinators, and plants cannot continue
to grow without pollination. Flies might bother us
in our homes, but they are decomposers which makes them
nature’s cleaning crew. Insects are fascinating. Head outside and see what you can find. [music]
