Drew Brees launches new program that raise awareness of Exertional Heat Stroke

Most people have heard of a concussion, but they may not be aware of another sports-related condition called Exertional Heat Stroke (EHS), a severe form of heat illness. EHS is a medical emergency that may put vital organs and the brain at risk for permanent damage or may even cause death in some cases. In fact, it's the third leading cause of sudden death in high school athletes. It can occur in seemingly healthy people during a variety of situations involving strenuous exercise, work or recreational activities in hot temperature conditions. While EHS is more likely to occur in hot environments like football practices or hiking people can be at risk in other environmental conditions. Athletes, firefighters, outdoor workers and military personnel operating in hot environments are at increased risk for EHS.

Superstar quarterback Drew Brees has seen the symptoms of EHS firsthand during football games and practices throughout his career. As a parent, he's committed to helping protect today's youth from this life-threatening medical emergency. That is why he is helping to launch The Heat Factor, an educational program designed to raise EHS awareness, particularly among parents and coaches, and encourage communities to be prepared for an EHS emergency.

Here are is lifesaving acronym to remember Exertional Heat Stroke (EHS), 

H.E.A.T:  
H-High Temperature
E-Exercise or Activity
A-Acting Confused
T-Time to Call 911

Dave Owens, The Garden Guy: Fertilization

It's getting to be that time of year to start thinking about fertilizing your trees, roses, vegetables and other plants around your yard. There are a few things you should keep in mind when fertilizing the inorganic fertilizers. Typically, synthetic fertilizers cause quick, succulent growth that is more susceptible to disease and insect damage, and contaminate our ground water supplies. You also kill a lot of beneficial organics in the soil that help plants manufacture food, which helps your plants and lawn grow. If I were going to have only one item to help my garden grow, it would be compost. Good compost not only fertilizers, but also reduces water consumption and disease. I top-dress my rose beds, vegetable garden and lawn with compost, gradually reducing any extra fertilizer needed during the year. Spread 2 to 4 inches of compost around your shrubs and trees but do not let compost come in contact with the trunks. Epsom salts can be used for roses and daffodil bulb and you can try making a foliar spray of ¼ cup to a gallon of water to spray on your roses, placing coffee ground which are full of nitrogen around your plants and banana peels around your roses to help them resist insects such as aphids.
