NOAA PROPOSES

STRINGENT LIMITS TO

SANDBAR SHARK FISHING
MADEIRA BEACH NOAA Fisheries Service is proposing that
commercial and recreational fishing for sandbar sharks be signifi-
cantly reduced and limited to only those commercial vessels that take
part in a shark research program. This proposal will be open to pub-
lic comment at a series of hearings throughout August and
September, one of which will be held in Madeira Beach on
Wednesday, August 22 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at 300 Municipal
Drive.
"Because sandbar sharks as well as dusky sharks have been
severely depleted, we must take strong measures to stop overfishing
and allow these species to rebuild," said Dr. William T. Hogarth,
director of NOAA Fisheries Service. "Even with these measures, it
will take a long time to rebuild the population of these sharks because
of their unique biology."
Sandbar and dusky sharks, like other shark species, mature late,
grow slowly and produce relatively few young. This makes them par-
ticularly vulnerable to overexploitation. NOAA banned the fishing of
dusky sharks in 2000, after stock assessments showed severe deple-
tion. See Sharks, Page 3

USUS ile h'noto
A,typical coral reef (shown in photo) contains hard (stony) corals, soft corals, sponges, algae, molluscs, worms, fish just to name a few. An
important environmental feature in the oceans, reefs create structureand provide homes for many types of organisms.
They are some of the most diverse habitats in the world.


As they dazzle divers with their abundant diversity of life, color
and shape, the world's coral reefs are dwindling at an alarming rate.
Human causes like unsustainable fishing practices, global warm-
ing, disease, and exposure to excess sediments, nutrients and con-
taminants threaten to wipe the ocean floor clean of these vibrant
ocean floor communities. These recent changes in reef systems
worldwide are unprecedented, according to a U.S. Geological Survey
(USGS) report that summarizes these threats and outlines important
research actions needed over the next five years to more accurately
forecast future conditions and to better understand and manage
change.
"Coral ecosystems contribute an estimated $30 billion to the
global economy, but they are being transformed rapidly by a combi-
nation of local, regional, and global stressors," said Gary Brewer,
USGS Eastern Region Ocean Science Coordinator. "The USGS has
developed a robust research plan that addresses the threats that coral
ecosystems are facing," said Brewer.
Coral ecosystems include not only reefs, but interdependent sea
grass and mangrove habitats. They are geological and biological


complexes composed of hundreds to thousands of interacting
species. The essential goods and services they provide include
sources of food, essential habitat for fisheries and protected species,
biodiversity, protection of coastlines from wave damage and erosion,
recreation, and cultural values for island nations and communities.
"This plan is targeted for a wide audience of researchers and
decision makers," said Brewer. "It is inclusive of a broad range of
current and potential partners with scientific research and resource
management expertise."
The extent of U.S. shallow-water coral ecosystems is estimated
at more than 9 million acres and the deep coral habitats are known to
be even larger, although they have not been fully mapped. About.
4800 different species of coral are known throughout the world.
The plan aims to improve understanding of reef structure and
ecology through exploration and mapping of reefs, enhance
researchers' ability to identify pollution sources and their effects, and
help identify the ways coral is responding to global climate change.


Florida's Housing Downturn Stymies


Consumer Confidence Turnaround


By: Cathy Keen, UF
GAINESVILLE The weak housing market is to blame for
Florida's one-point drop in consumer confidence to 81 in July at a
time when the national index is on the rise, a new University of
Florida study finds.
The dip was fueled by declines in-three of the five components
that make up the state index. Perceptions of personal finances now
compared to a year ago fell six points to 72; perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next five years dropped three points to 79;
and perceptions of U.S. economic conditions over the next year
slipped two points to 73. The two components to increase were per-
ceptions of whether it is a good time to buy big-ticket items, which
rose five points to 92, and perceptions of personal finances one year
from now, up one point to 89.


"Consumer confidence among Floridians seems to be in a hold-
ing pattern for the past few months," said Chris McCarty, director of
the Survey Research Center at UF's Bureau of Economic and
Business Research.
Although the overall index is virtually flat, fluctuations in its
individual components reveal a more detailed picture, he said.
"The reading for perceptions of personal finances has not been
this low since October 2002 when the stock market experienced a
temporary crash and the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 27 per-
cent of its value'" McCarty said. "Although there have been some
recent declines in the stock market, over the month of July the stock
market experienced record levels. Something else is bothering con-
sumers."

DISASTER RESPONSE

LEGISLATION

TALLAHASSEE Governor Charlie Crist today ceremonially
signed two bills to provide aid to Floridians preparing for and recov-
ering from natural disasters. Lt. Governor Jeff Kottkamp visited hur-
ricane preparation and recovery sites in Southeast Florida.
Senate Bill 2482 Relating to Tax Administration
Governor Crist was joined by Senator Carey Baker (R-Eustis)
and Pastor Larry Lynn at the Lady Lake Church of God to ceremoni-
ally sign Senate Bill 2482. The legislation provides $1.2 million in
tax relief to residents whose homes were destroyed by the tornadoes
of December 25, 2006, and February 2, 2007, as well as to the vic-
tims of the 2004 hurricanes.
"Natural disasters can be devastating to homeowners with recov-
ery taking months and even years," Governor Crist said. "This bill
provides additional help and much needed financial relief to the peo-
ple of Lady Lake and other Floridians whose homes were damaged
by these horrific tornadoes."
In addition, the bill makes vacant land, owned by tax-exempt
organizations and prepared to be used as a house of worship, exempt
from property taxes.
House Bill 449 Criminal Acts During a State of Emergency
Governor Crist visited the Martin County Emergency Operations
Center to ceremonially sign House Bill 449 which increases the
penalty for burglaries and thefts committed during a declared state of
emergency. Governor Crist was joined by bill sponsors Senator Dave
Aronberg (D-Fort Myers) and Representative William Snyder (R-
Stuart).
"Unfortunately, there are people out there that will take advan-
tage of others in the aftermath of a disaster," Governor Crist said.
"We will not stand by while these criminals prey on Floridians when
they are most vulnerable. I thank the Legislature for creating stiffer
penalties for these crimes and for helping make Floridians safer when
recovering from disasters."
The legislation applies to situations where criminals take advan-
tage of power outages or a reduction of police presence to prey upon
victims of a disaster. In addition, the penalties are increased for theft
from an emergency vehicle. Criminals arrested under this law may
not be released until they appear before a judge.
Lt. Governor Jeff Kottkamp today attended a groundbreaking
ceremony at East Elementary School in Charlotte County. The school
was severely damaged by Hurricane Charley in 2004. The Lt.
Governor also toured the Charlotte County Red Cross which provides
Disaster Action Teams for Port Charlotte, Englewood-East and Punta
Gorda. The Lt. Governor later visited Punta Gorda to learn about the
cities' preparation and recovery plans.
"Thanks to the hard work of Florida's families and our partners
in disaster management, Florida will remain a national leader in
emergency management before, during and after a storm," said Lt.
Governor Kottkamp.

The rich soil of the Midwest can grow just about anything.
Including, apparently, dollar bills. In fact, to grow those, one doesn't
even need a plot of land.
Consider Chicago.
A skyscraper-and-concrete landscape is an unlikely place for
farmers to set up shop. Yet there are at least 1,705 farmers in the city.
Or, at least, that's how many Chicago-based people and groups cash
federal farm subsidy checks, according to the Environmental
Working Group, a think tank that tracks farm subsidies.
EWG's report found farmers in surprising places. Look at the
cramped quarters of the 60611 zip code. That 1.6-square-mile stretch
contains an estimated 24,744 people (the city-data.com Web site calls
it "100 percent urban"). But, apparently, there's always room for a
few crops.
According to EWG, three of the Top 10 farm subsidy recipients
in the Chicago metro area list 60611 as their home ZIP code. These
include Theodore D. Tieken Jr. (who brought home $286,415 in fed-
eral assistance between 2003-2005), Nancy Tieken ($222,688) and
Elizabeth Kirkpatrick ($222,688). Good work if you can get it.
It's not just individuals cashing subsidy checks. Over in the
60604 ZIP code (also 100 percent urban) are two farms in EWG's Top
10: F & J Farms and Frymire Farms Inc. It's difficult to imagine what
these farms are raising in this ZIP code, since the things that grow
best here seem to be tall' structures, including the Metcalfe and
Kluczynski Federal Buildings. But these "farmers" are certainly rak-
ing in the cash.
Of course, individuals and farms aren't the only recipients of
Washington's largesse. In fact, plenty of that funding is, literally, for
the birds.
Seven "habitat foundations" made EWG's Top 40 list for
Chicago subsidy recipients. These include the Green Wing Teal
Habitat Foundation, Blue Wing Teal Habitat Foundation (why save
birds with one wing color and not save birds with,a different wing
color?), Ringbill Habitat Foundation, Wood Duck Habitat
Foundation, Gadwall Habitat Foundation, Pintail Habitat Foundation
and Mallard Habitat Foundation. EWG says these conservation
groups have pulled in more than a million dollars combined in feder-
al farm subsidies the last three years.
All these groups have something in common: They're all part of
the Wetlands Initiative, a non-profit organization founded in 1994 "to
focus restoration efforts and funds on reversing the environmental
damage created by the drainage of wetlands in the upper Midwest."
Now, it may be a great idea to protect wetlands. And, if private
individuals want to cone together and in\ e.t money for that purpose,
more power to them. But that's not \%hat. happening here. Instead,
federal farm subsidies are being spent to take farmlands out of pro-
duction and turn them into wetlands for waterfowl.
Not surprisingly, lawmakers don't like to talk about these proj-
ects when they discuss farm policy. Instead, they talk about how
they're helping family farmers, the type of hardworking Americans
who built this country. But the unfortunate fact about farm subsidies
is that they go mostly to big agribusiness and politically connected
individuals -- including many in Chicago and around the country.
And we taxpayers are picking up the bill. Farm subsidies cost the
average household $216 in annual taxes along with $104 in higher
food prices.
Money doesn't grow on trees. In fact, with farm subsidies, you
don't even need soil to grow money -- just a willing federal govern-
ment.
It's time to make America green, by ending foolish farm subsi-
dies and once again giving our citizens the freedom to farm, without
the meddling of a federal government that can't tell the difference
between a city condo and a cornfield.

K 2


















Reports of dead fish, ranging from a few individuals to hundreds
of thousands, have prompted dozens of calls per week to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) this summer.
Apprehensive callers to the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline worry
something must be terribly wrong; others just want to know the caus-
es.
Fortunately, the mechanism at the root of most summertime fish
kills in brackish estuaries, freshwater lakes and man-made retention
ponds is well understood by scientists. Ironically, a lack of sunshine
in the Sunshine State is where problems begin. The process starts
with overcast skies, hot summer days and rainy weather. Low water
levels, brought on by drought, add to the mix.
Most of the oxygen fish breathe is created when waterborne
microscopic plants use sunlight to produce and add dissolved oxygen
to the water, a process known as photosynthesis. But when overcast
skies persist for several days, there is often not enough sunlight to
power the oxygen-making process that supports fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from thunderstorms adds to the problem by
stirring up bottom sediments that muddy the water, further reducing
sunlight penetration in the water column. Rainwater runoff also
washes large amounts of decaying plant and animal material into the
water body. In the decay process, bacteria use dissolved oxygen in
the water to break down plant and animal matter, further dropping
oxygen levels.



NASA Data to.Aid

There's an old saying, "You can't see the forest for the trees."
When it comes to global climate change, it's not hard to spot the
"trees" they're in the news headlines nearly every day. To see the
"forest," however-that is, to gain a more complete understanding of
the climate variations we're seeing-scientists use satellite remote
sensing. With these technologies, they 'can directly measure factors
that affect our climate, such as levels of water vapor and other green-
house gases, ozone and concentrations of airborne dust. Scientists
feed these data into
computerized climate
models to project how
our climate might ,
change in the future. '
A key contributor .
to this new generation
of climate change
research tools is the
Atmospheric Infrared '
Sounder, or AIRS,
instrument on NASA's
Aqua spacecraft.
Developed under the
direction of NASA's
Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, Pasadena,
Calif., ArRS measures
the. key ,atmospheric
gases affecting cli-
mate. It's the first in a
series of planned *# *
advanced infrared
sounders that provide accurate, detailed atmospheric measurements
for weather and climate applications. Its observations complement
existing sensors from NASA and other organizations by providing
broad global coverage day and night, even in the presence of clouds.
Newly released AIRS measurements include better temperature
and water vapor profiles; profiles of carbon monoxide, methane and
ozone; and warning 'flags' to identify concentrations of sulfur diox-
ide and dust.
"These new data will significantly improve our ability to
observe and characterize today's climate with greater accuracy,
which is key to increasing our confidence in climate prediction mod-
els," said Moustafa Chahine, AIRS science team leader at JPL. "With
its nearly 2,400 separate frequency channels sensing different
regions of the atmosphere, AIRS creates a global, 3-D map of atmos-
pheric temperature, water vapor, clouds and greenhouse gases with
the same accuracy currently possible only through direct measure-
ments by sensors on weather balloons." AIRS provides these meas-
urements continuously, all over the-globe, including over Earth's vast
oceans, where weather balloon data are extremely limited.
Highlights of the new AIRS measurements include:
Ozone
AIRS provides a global daily 3-D view of Earth's ozone layer,
showing how ozone is transported. This is critical to identify events
and places at risk of high solar ultraviolet exposure, which affects the
health of humans and other living things. The new AIRS infrared
imaging gives scientists the best view of the Antarctic region during
the polar winter. It also allows scientists to image the transport of
stratospheric ozone into Earth's lowermost atmospheric layer, the
troposphere, with broader coverage.
Carbon monoxide
Carbon monoxide emissions from the burning-of plant materials
and animal waste by humans in rainforests and large cities can be
seen from space using data from the new AIRS measurements. AIRS
sees giant plumes of gas being transported across the planet from


"If these conditions persist, and dissolved oxygen levels drop for
extended periods, fish suffocate." said Jeff Willitzer, FWC fisheries
biologist.
In short, during extended periods of overcast, rainy or cloudy
weather, the biological system uses dissolved oxygen faster than it
can produce it. Heavy weather aggravates the situation by creating
and intensifying all the conditions that lower dissolved oxygen lev-
els in the water.
The good news is that most water bodies don't suffer repeat per-
formances every year. In fact, most water bodies go years without
suffering a major fish kill.
"In spite of summer fish kills, most Florida lakes are in relative-
ly healthy shape and fish populations remain stable. Angling success
generally is not affected over the long haul, even after events that
might appear serious to the untrained eye," said Willitzer, who is also
an avid angler.
Still, it's important for biologists like Willitzer to keep track of
the location and extent of fish kills in natural lakes and estuaries to
see if there are serious problems developing in an ecosystem that
might require investigation or restorative measures.
Floridians can report fish kills in natural water bodies to the
FWC's Fish Kill Hotline at 1-800-636-0511, the FWC's Lakeland
office at (863) 648-3200 or online at MyFWC.com by clicking on
"Contact FWC." It is not necessary to report fish kills in man-made
retention ponds.

Sulfur dioxide
Volcanoes emit
large quantities of sulfur dioxide. AIRS tracks both ash and emitted
sulfur dioxide plumes. AIRS provides global, daily coverage of sul-
fur dioxide day and night to complement other sensors with more
sensitivity. AIRS data are currently being used to alert the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Volcanic Ash Advisory
Center in Washington of volcanic events in remote areas. AIRS data
also help the airline industry fly safely and avoid costly damage to
flight systems from volcanic emissions. The new AIRS measure-
ments include a warning 'flag' to identify locations where volcanic
events are occurring.
Dust and Aerosols

AIRS measures dust and aerosols using infrared, or heat-seek-
ing, detectors. Not only does this allow dust to be viewed day and
night, but it also helps us better understand the role dust plays in
maintaining Earth's thermal energy balance. Dust storms can affect
atmospheric chemistry and rainfall patterns, and can transport
micronutrients and microorganisms. Changes in land use such as
deforestation or overgrazing have contributed to more frequent dust
storms worldwide. AIRS provides a global daily view of the infrared
properties of dust, monitoring' its transport and distinguishing
between different types of dust. The new AIRS measurements
include a dust warning 'flag' to allow scientists to identify regions of
high-dust concentration, worthy of more detailed examination.
Real-Time Data for Weather Forecasters AIRS' contributions to
the field of weather forecasting' have already been considerable.
Weather forecasting centers around the world, using less than one
percent of available AIRS data, have extended reliable mid-range
weather forecasts by more than six hours. These centers have also
demonstrated that AIRS can improve forecasts of the location and
magnitude of predicted storms. The improved AIRS temperature and
water vapor profiles are now available in real time to regional weath-
er forecasters, giving them another source of daily weather measure-
ments for the entire Pacific Ocean, once in the morning and once in
the evening.


Progress to Launch to Space Station


A new Progress cargo carrier is scheduled to launch to the
International Space Station at 1:34 p.m. EDT Thursday, Aug. 2, with
more than 2.5 tons of fuel, air, water and other supplies and equip-
ment aboard.
The station's 26th Progress unpiloted spacecraft will bring to the
orbiting laboratory almost 1,600 pounds of propellant, more than 100
pounds of air and oxygen, more than 465 pounds of water and 2,954
pounds of dry cargo. Total cargo weight is 5,111 pounds.
Among the dry cargo are spares for Russian computers that had
problems during the STS-117 mission of Atlantis to the station in
June.
P26 will launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
It is scheduled to dock with the station Sunday, Aug. 5, at about 2:38
p.m.
The spacecraft will use the automated Kurs system to dock at the
aft port of the Zvezda Service Module. Expedition 15 Commander


Fyodor Yurchikhin will be at the manual TORU docking system con-
trols, should his intervention become necessary.
Once Expedition 15 crew members, Yurchikhin and flight engi-
neers Oleg Kotov and Clay Anderson, have unloaded the cargo, P26
will be filled with trash and station discards. It will be undocked from
the station with its load of trash and deorbited, to burn in the Earth's
atmosphere.
The Progress is similar in appearance and some design elements
to the Soyuz spacecraft, which brings crew members to the station,
serves as a lifeboat while they are there and returns them to Earth.
The aft module, the instrumentation and propulsion module, is near-
ly identical.
But the second of the three Progress sections is a refueling mod-
ule, and the third, uppermost as the Progress sits on the launch pad,
is a cargo module. On the Soyuz, the descent module, where the crew
is seated on launch and which returns them to Earth, is the middle

Housing, Continued from Page 1
Retail sales nationally were weak in June, but they appear to be
far worse in Florida, data from the Florida Department of Revenue
show, McCarty said.
In another departure from the country as a whole, the national
consumer confidence index as measured by the University of
Michigan was at a five-month high in July at 90, nine points above
Florida's rating, he said.
"Typically, Florida tracks the national consumer confidence very
closely," McCarty said. "It is becoming increasingly clear that
Florida's economy is moving in a different direction than most of the
country.
"We have been saying for quite some time that Florida's econo-
my is in a vulnerable position due to the effects of the declining hous-
ing market," he said. "We attribute a large part of the decline in con-
sumer confidence in July to the very weak housing market in the first
and second quarter of 2007."
SAs the rest of the year unfolds, it is likely that the effects of the
housing downturn will become even more pronounced, McCarty
said. This will be seen in the form of lower retail sales resulting from
declines in home equity, and continued stagnation in home sales as
inventory builds, he said.
Ultimately, the housing slump will hurt state revenues because
the largest portion of the general revenue fund is financed from tax-
able sales, he said.
"Our expectation is that consumer confidence in Florida will
decline a bit further and will remain low for the remainder of 2008,"
he said.
The research center conducts the Florida Consumer Attitude
Survey monthly. Respondents are 18 or older and live in households
telephoned randomly. The preliminary index for July was conducted
from 503 responses. The error rate is plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is designed to help predict buying patterns
by measuring the mood of consumers toward purchasing. Although
other economic indicators also predict buying patterns, consumer
confidence tends to be available sooner. The index is benchmarked to
1966, so a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for
the year. The value of the index is in comparing changes over time
rather than looking at an isolated month.


Sharks, Continued from Page 1
There are approximately 529 commercial fishing permits for
shark fishing in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean.
Sandbar sharks, because of their large fins, are the most valuable
species among the large coastal sharks. The fins are considered a del-
icacy and are a main ingredient in ethnic food dishes such as shark
fin soup.
The.proposed amendment to the Consolidated Highly Migratory
Species Fishery Management Plan would reduce the quota for sand-
bar sharks by 80 percent as part of the rebuilding plan. The measures
would help NOAA Fisheries meet the Congressional mandate of the
newly reauthorized Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and
Management Act to end all overfishing.
NOAA Fisheries would also establish a shark research fishery of
between five and 10 vessels that could land sandbar and other sharks.
The vessels would have observers on board and meet other criteria to
be part of the program. The research would be designed to gain more
information about the status, mobility, migration, habitat, ecology,
and age and growth characteristics of sandbar sharks.
Other measures in the proposed amendment are the closing of
some areas to shark fishing as recommended by the South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council; establishing a limit per trip on the
amount of other large coastal sharks a fishermen can keep; requiring
that fins be attached to any shark that is commercially landed; and
reducing the shark species that recreational fishermen can keep.
During the months of August and September, NOAA Fisheries

Bronson Reminds Horse Owners



To Update Vaccinations


TALLHASSEE--Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner is urging horse owners to
remember to vaccinate their animals against Eastern
Equine Encephalitis and West Nile virus in the wake of
Centers for Disease Control warnings about a potential
West Nile epidemic. He is also reminding people to take
precautions against mosquito bites.
The CDC says the number of human West Nile Virus
cases in the United States is nearly four times higher than
what it was this time last year. The virus, carried by mos-
quitoes can cause flu like symptoms in people and in
horses and can be fatal in the.equine population. Eastern
Equine Encephalitis is also often fatal in horses.
So far, Florida has not been impacted by the rise in
arbovirus activity seen elsewhere. In fact, there have been
no reported cases of West Nile virus in horses and only
thirteen Eastern Equine Encephalitis cases in horses. No
people have been infected at all in Florida.
Commissioner Bronson wants that trend to continue.
"I believe people are heeding the warnings to protect
themselves from mosquito bites and that diligence
among horse owners to get their animals vaccinated has
resulted in Florida's low numbers," Bronson said.
"Florida also has some very effective mosquito control


districts to keep the mosquito populations down. But it's
important that people not get complacent considering
what we are seeing elsewhere in the nation."
Horse owners are urged to check with their veteri-
narian ,to make sure their animals have received current
vaccinations and booster shots against WNV and EEE,
and that these shots are kept up to date.
Bronson says Floridians and visitors can take simple
steps to protect themselves against mosquito borne dis-
ease by follow several simple steps:,
Limit time outside during dusk and dawn when mos-
quitoes are most active.
Wear light colored, long-sleeved shirts and pants to
cover skin and reduce the chance of being bitten when
outside between dusk and dawn.
Eliminate standing water in yards, such as in bird-
baths, kiddie pools, old tires and other receptacles, as
stagnant water is an excellent breeding ground for mos-
quitoes.
Use insect repellent that contains DEET. which is an
effective repellent.
Keep window screens in good repair.
Clean out rain gutters and keep them unclogged to
avoid pockets of standing water.


Key to the success of the trial will be the recruitment of
the participants, and Dr. Straub hopes the study will appeal
to women's sense of altruism.
"Microbicides could one day provide an opportunity to
cost-effectively stem the tide of the scourge of HIV/AIDS,
especially among the most disenfranchised members of our
society," Dr. Straub said. "Getting the chance to contribute to
microbicide development and thus empowering women to
protect themselves is, we think, a powerful incentive for par-
ticipation."
Participation in the study lasts three weeks, including
the two-week period that gels are used. Participants will
receive financial compensation for their time and effort.
Whether microbicides will alter the course of HIV by
preventing its transmission is still an unknown, Dr. Straub
said. The current study of VivaGel is a Phase I study, which
evaluates for safety and acceptability. If the product is
deemed safe and acceptable for use, subsequent trials will
test its effectiveness.
"The pioneering studies undertaken by Dr. Straub and
her colleagues at USF/USF Health are very important in
establishing the safely of this microbicidal agent in success-
fully preventing the transmission of HIV in sexually active
individuals," said Abdul S. Rao, MD, MA, DPhil, senior
associate vice president for USF Health and vice dean for
research and graduate affairs at the College of Medicine.
"This is an area of research that is strategically important for
SUSF Health and is a critical component of its
Interdisciplinary Signature Program in Allergy,
Immunology, and Infectious Diseases."

UF to Lead Research on Life Threatening Fungus


GAINESVILLE Hear the word fungus, and mushrooms and
mold night leap to mind. But the University of Florida is about to
house the nation's first research repository for one species that has
nothing to do with pizza toppings or marbling blue cheese:
Aspergillus, which increasingly poses a major health threat to cancer
patients and transplant recipients.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded $9 million over
the next.seven years to the effort. UF researchers are collaborating
with colleagues at Duke University, Brigham and Women's Hospital
in Boston and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, who will funnel
patients' respiratory, urine and blood samples to UF. The repository
will support research aimed at learning more about the fungus and
efforts to develop more accurate tests to detect it in patients.
"Aspergillus is everywhere, particularly in the air we breathe; all
of us breathe it in all the time," said principal investigator John
Wingard, M.D., director of UF's blood and marrow transplant pro-
gram and deputy director of the UF Shands Cancer Center. "On a
windy day, especially in a dusty environment or every time some dirt
gets moved around, lots of these organisms get aerosolized."
The number of people contracting Aspergillus infections jumped
enormously in the 1990s, Wingard said, and those with weakened
immune systems are particularly susceptible. Aspergillosis is the
leading cause of death from infection in bone marrow transplant and
leukemia patients, as well as among those whb receive certain other
solid organ transplants, he said. About 15 percent of all bone marrow
transplant patients, for example, will develop an infection from
Aspergillus; of those, about two-thirds die.
"We haven't had good treatments, we haven't had good preven-
tion methods and, most importantly, we haven't had good diagnostic
methods to identify which patients have these infections," Wingard
said. "Since we often don't recognize that patients have aspergillosis
until very late in the course of the infection, by the time we try to
treat the infection it is often so advanced we have very poor prospects
of bringing it under control."
A number of hospitals undergoing renovations have experienced
outbreaks, in many cases after the organism contaminated ventilation
systems or fireproofing materials. Despite hospitals' infection con-
trol measures aimed at minimizing risks, including special air filtra-
tion systems designed to filter out Aspergillus and other infectious
agents, facilities can still have problems and sometimes have even
had to temporarily close their patient-care units.
"You and I have a good healthy defense, so while we may be col-
onized by the organisms, we rarely get serious infections," Wingard
said. "But if we become immunocompromised, those organisms can


be deposited on the mucosal surface of nasal passages, the sinuses
and the bronchi, and they can start invading and can cause very seri-
ous, deadly infections." /
Complicating the picture is that aspergillosis is frequently mis-
taken for bacterial pneumonia, and tests for the infection often are
initially negative.
"Historically, our only means of diagnosing these infections has
been by growing the organism from patient's specimens in the labo-
ratory and then having it identified by an experienced mycologist,"
said Barbara D. Alexander, M.D., the project's co-principal investi-
gator and director of transplant infectious diseases services and the
clinical mycology laboratory at Duke University Medical Center.
"These conventional methods for diagnosing fungal disease are slow
and lack sensitivity. Furthermore, many times the patients are too
sick to tolerate the invasive procedures, such as lung biopsy, in order
to obtain the samples for laboratory testing."
Wingard said two-thirds of the time tests are negative even
though patients have the infection.
"That's the biggest challenge we may suspect patients have
the infection but we can't really know with certainty from currently
available tests whether they truly are infected or not," he said. "We
end up making clinical decisions about using drugs that may be toxic
or using the wrong drugs in patients when we are not sure whether
they have this deadly infection."
Officials are hoping to collect samples from about 200 patients
a year for the next seven years to better characterize the fungus arid
improve the diagnostic accuracy and speed of tests used to detect
aspergillosis. The repository will include samples from patients with
confirmed infections that will be compared with samples from
patients whose diagnosis is less cJear and with samples from patients
who are at high-risk but not infected.
Researchers also will work with Emory University,
Indianapolis-based MiraVista Diagnostics, and the University of
Manchester in England to evaluate existing tests and develop new,
more accurate and less invasive ones.
While more potent treatment regimens are improving prospects
for patients, so-called emerging pathogens viruses, bacteria and
fungi are a growing medical problem, Wingard said.
"With advancing medical technology and more powerful antibi-
otics, patients are living longer." he said. "We have a growing popu-
lation of patients who are susceptible to very serious infections by
viruses, bacteria and fungi that in years past were not medical prob-
lems."

Pepsi Listed


Among EPA's Top


25 Green Power


Purchasers

Washington, D.C. The Environmental Protection Agency has
updated its Top Green Power Purchasers list highlighting organiza-
tions committed to purchasing green power. The National Top 25 list
of Green Power Partners accounts for more than 6 billion kilowatt-
hours (kWh) per year of green power purchasing, more than 60 per-
cent of the total kWh in the Green Power Partnership; reducing
greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of more than
700,000vehicles.
"America is shifting to a green culture, with more and more busi-
nesses understanding that environmental responsibility is everyone's
responsibility," said Marcus Peacock, EPA's Deputy Administrator.
"EPA commends the leading Green Power Partners for making a
long-term commitment to protecting the environment."
EPA's National Top 25 list ranks two of Pepsi's three independ-
ent bottlers at fourth and 13th. Kohl's Department Stores increased its
green power purchases to raise its ranking to eighth nationally, and
Mohawk Fine Papers places on the list at 22nd.
The Pepsi bottler purchase demonstrates that a group of compa-
nies, tied together by a supply chain, can help protect the environ-
ment by buying green power. The total aggregate purchase of the
three independent bottlers is nearly 629 million kWh per year. Two of
the three bottlers rank on EPA's National Top 25 list, and all three
found placement on EPA's 100 percent Green Power Purchaser list,
while one bottler also ranks among the more than 45 Fortune 500 cor-
porations participating in EPA's Fortune 500 challenge.
EPA's Green Power Partnership, launched in 2001 and works
with more than 750 partner organizations that voluntarily buy green
power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with
conventional electricity use and to promote the development of new
renewable generation resources nationwide. Overall, EPA Green
Power Partners are buying more than 10 billion kWh of green power
annually, an increase of nearly 163 percent since January 2006.
Green power is generated from eligible renewable resources such as
solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and biogas, as well as low-impact
hydropower.
EPA updates its Top Partners lists quarterly. Below is the updat-
ed list of EPA's National Top 25 list, listed in descending order of pur-
chase size as of July 2007. For more on EPA's Green Power

Bronson Deploys

Inspectors To Search For

Recalled Food Products

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consuimer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson announced recently that his
department is intensifying efforts to assist federal regulators in
searching for and removing from store shelves food products recalled
by Castleberry's Food Company a week ago.
Despite efforts by the Georgia company, the FDA and U.S.
Department of Agriculture to remove the more than 90 different
canned meats, chili sauces and other canned products subject to the
nationwide recall because of potential botulism poisoning, Bronson
said inspectors in his Food Safety Division are continuing to find the
recalled products on store shelves.
As a result, inspectors will be concentrating in the coming days
to make sure that. none of those products (listed at
http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/castlebenry207_07.html)
remain in stores by questioning store personnel on whether their
establishments carry any of Casteleberry's products and searching
store shelves themselves for the potentially tainted food products..
Bronson said he will also dispatch inspectors to flea markets
over the weekend to search for the recalled products as many flea
markets typically carry low-cost food items, including canned goods.
At the same time, Bronson and federal authorities stress that
Castleberry products already purchased by consumers should not be
eaten.
"It is critical that none of these products are purchased or con-
sumed," Bronson said. "Botulism is a serious threat as the illness it
triggers can cause paralysis, respiratory failure and even death."
According to the FDA, botulism is a rare but serious paralytic ill-
ness caused by a nerve toxin. Symptoms include double vision,
blurred vision, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing and muscle
weakness. In the most extreme cases, it can cause respiratory failure
and even death.
The FDA recommends that if consumers find any of the poten-
tially tainted products in their homes, they should double bag the cans
and throw them away.
In addition to the more than 90 canned meats, chili sauces and
other food products being recalled, there are also 4 pet food products
included in the recall.

County EMS Offers Free Pool

Safety Surveys

Pinellas County pool owners can take advantage of a free pool
safety survey program. The program is offered by local fire depart-
ments in cooperation with Florida Suncoast SAFE KIDS Coalition,
and Pinellas County EMS & Fire Administration.
Drowning remains a leading cause of child deaths throughout
Pinellas County and the state of Florida. Last year in Pinellas County,
23 children under 7 years of age required an emergency medical
response as a result of water submersion. Five children lost their
lives.


Pinellas County pool owners can request free home pool safety
surveys by calling 'the drowning prevention hotline at (727) 582-
2074. A public safety professional will visit and suggest ways to
make the backyard pool a safer environment. The safety improve-
ments are strictly voluntary and are designed to help reduce backyard
pool child submersions countywide.
The hotline offers other prerecorded swimming safety informa-
tion as well. Callers can also leave a message to request a drowning
prevention speaker for their club, civic group or homeowners associ-
ation.

Erie are expected
to give scientists the detailed information they need
to tell how the region's carbon dioxide is affected
by forests, crops, or an upwind Front Range city.
Finding carbon monoxide in the same air parcel,
for example, is a clue that the carbon dioxide
source is a high-traffic urban area, since carbon
monoxide is produced through combustion.
As other towers in the network collect similar
regional details from around the country, the data
will be fed into ESRL's online Carbon Tracker site,
a powerful data framework unveiled earlier this
year. Now geared to scientists, Carbon Tracker will
ultimately provide easy-to-use information on
local scales for policymakers, business leaders,
teachers and the public.
Land use, drought, forest growth, wildfires
and the daily carbon flux produced by daytime
plant photosynthesis and nighttime respiration can
dwarf short-term changes in human-produced f6s-
sil fuel emissions. Over time, however, the release
of carbon dioxide as a byproduct of fossil fuel
combustion has raised atmospheric levels 30 per-
cent since preindustrial times.
"Eventually we'll be able to measure all of
these effects natural and human. Nature has


Calling All


Sweethearts

The American Diabetes
Association is seeking nomina-
tions for its ADA Sweetheart
Program. Nominees should be
young women who will.be soph-
omores or juniors in highschool
during the 2007-2008 school
year. Sweethearts will volunteer
for the benefit of children and
adults with diabetes, participate
in social activities and work indi-
vidually and as a team to plan
events that rise money to sup-
port the ADA's mission. The pro-
gram will begin in September
and conclude in May 2008 with
a gala event. To make a nomina-
tion for a sweetheart, please con-
tact Glenda Berry at (813) 885-

starts to change, we need to be able to see it,"
Andrews says.
For the U.S. network, NOAA rents space on
television broadcast towers up to 2,000 feet high
- tall enough to capture air from several hundred
miles upwind and give a regional view of atmos-
pheric carbon levels. The Erie tower is an excep-
tion. NOAA built it in the 1970s to gather wind,
temperature, humidity and other weather data for
research and forecasting, and it still collects those
data today. Known as the Boulder Atmospheric
Observatory (BAO), the steel-scaffold structure
supports two elevators that carry people and instru-
ments to the top.
So far, the U.S. NOAA network also includes

gathering air in metal flasks, which will be sent to
the Boilder lab for analysis. The flask samples will
provide even greater detail on sources of Front
Range carbon emissions.
In a separate air-quality study starting July 23,
NOAA/ESRL scientists will install four additional
instruments on the NOAA tower to measure partic-
ulates, pollutants that form ozone, and ozone itself,
with a special interest in nighttime chemistry.
Researchers will also comb the data for clues on
how natural gas production in Weld County is
affecting regional air. For two weeks, air quality
instruments will collect data nonstop from the sur-
face to the tower top from aboard an elevator.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, an agency of the U.S. Commerce
Department, is celebrating 200 years of science
and service to the nation. From the establishment
of the Survey of the. Coast in 1807 by Thomas
iJefferson to the formation of the Weather Bureau
and the Commission of Fish and Fisheries in the
1870s, much of America's scientific heritage is
rooted in NOAA.
