In an effort to stay on topic in the Louisiana section of this forum and create a learning opportunity, I offer an interesting article about Louisiana gnat populations.

Quote:
Starting around April 21, 2010, reports began to come in that gnats were attacking poultry, quail and caged birds. So far, we have identified gnats from Slaughter, Baton Rouge and Charenton, and they all were Cnephia ornithophilia, a species similar to the Southern buffalo gnat, Cnephia pecuarum. Both species are black flies (family Simuliidae) that develop in bayous and flooded areas like battures. There is one generation per year that can occur in late winter to early spring. Adult populations exist for approximately one month, and the eggs deposited by the females begin to develop for the following year. Historically, in the Mississippi River Valley, the emergence of massive swarms of Southern buffalo gnats was associated with the death of livestock. Acute toxemia and anaphylactic shock can be caused by toxins in the saliva of feeding black flies. The black fly Cnephia ornithophilia prefers birds to livestock, and clinical reports have been limited to birds so far in this outbreak. We also recently collected a specimen of the turkey gnat, Simulium meridionale, which develops in large rivers. The turkey gnat also is a serious pest of chickens and turkeys.

What does Louisiana Want to Become in National Imagery?

When it comes to general and/or specific public safety, how do we want to be viewed both in State and on the National stage?

Items: Cell Phone and Driving. Louisiana Safety Laws - Cell Phone, Seat Belt, Car Seat, Child Safety Laws in LA at DMV.org: The DMV Made Simple

Quote:
New drivers with “learner's" or “intermediate" licenses are prohibited from using cell phones while driving in Louisiana. Louisiana also has a statewide ban on the use of wireless devices for writing, sending, or reading text-based communications while driving, regardless of age.
The massive challenge to address Cell Phone usage by drivers while driving is a concern we may as a state need to take more detailed regulation.
Live lost continue to mount, but many near misses and other accident short of fatalities are caused by drivers using cell phones.
The National Safety Council's annual injury and fatality report, "Injury Facts," found that the use of cellphones causes 26% of the nation's car accidents: USA Today, News Story

How can we become a leader in Roadway Safety and Driving Habits?

Anyone is perfectly welcome to use their "ignore feature", especially when they over rate themselves to assume it would matter to anyone except themselves.
Reading threads and thread content is always an individual choice to do so, or not.

Do you realize that you said " gnat " THREE times , and " buzzing " TWICE in your long winded post ? Just an observation .

The unpleasant results of Jindal's presence and term in office

It may take a great effort over a great span of time, to undo the madness and mess made by the Jindal Term. In the meantime, Louisiana remains being rated at the bottom of the barrel in many national stats, and Jindal did nothing to elevate this State upwards.

Maybe he may be hailed as "The Great Destroyer of Louisiana's LSU Medical System and the Devastator of Louisiana Education"- along with The Greatest Squander-er of the Resources supplied by the nation to rebuild New Orleans. While he gave away to the Insurance companies any and every aims they have to fleece the people who reside in the state.

The list of 'Worst Titles, is a very long list when it comes to the ways in which Jindal and his Governorship has set back and devastated the state. The assault upon Education, Medicare and everything that concerns care for the people has been under constant assault by Jindal since his placement in office. This is an Act that Louisiana Resident Will Resent for many years into decades to come; devastation's caused by the acts of what this man has done in destroying as much of systems in this state as he could muster the means to destroy. If he could not destroy it he sought to privatize it and put it in the hands of cronies, who'd give him a campaign contribution. he sold us away by every mean, with his vain delusion of pursuing the office of the Presidency, of which he is ill equipped to win or hold in any manner and form. For his consumption with his own vanity and self deluded pride, we suffer greatly for years to come.

The man should be sentenced to a life term in one of Louisiana's Penal Farms for the ways he has done everything opposite of the State's Preamble.

"PREAMBLE"

We, the people of Louisiana, grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political, economic, and religious liberties we enjoy, and desiring to protect individual rights to life, liberty, and property; afford opportunity for the fullest development of the individual; assure equality of rights; promote the health, safety, education, and welfare of the people; maintain a representative and orderly government; ensure domestic tranquility; provide for the common defense; and secure the blessings of freedom and justice to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution.

Why not, many people have been sentenced for far less damages and injurious conduct toward others. This man has put many lives at risk, with his closure of medical facilities, he has damaged the future of many students with his disastrous cuts to educations. He has done nothing to help the elderly, and imposed more hardships with his denial of Federal Medicare Monies, and made many hardships on people the way he denied and fought against the help for the unemployed. He is so bent on being a Right Wing Poster Boy, until he will do anything to try and gain acceptance into that group. and when he is out of office, the Right Wingers won't have a darn thing to do with him.

A Penal Farm may be the best thing to open his eyes to the reality people face in this state. he lives in luxury and has insulated himself from reality, and put his focus since he's been in office of the dumb notion that he could be President; something that will never ever happen in these United States.
