Pinterest Twitter Facebook Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – December 14, 2020 Pinterest Previous articleEmpty Stocking needs your helpNext articleTeacher engages students through social media Digital AIM Web Support As the pandemic continues, counselors inside and outside of Ector County Independent School District have noticed an increase in suicidal ideation, stress and anxiety among children, parents and the community. Christy McGuire, a counselor at Gonzales Elementary School, Anthony Garza, an SAS counselor at Nimitz Middle School, Mary Perry, a psychosocial coordinator for PermiaCare, and Mark McQueen, clinical director for Centers for Children and Families, spoke about during a panel discussion on ECISD Live Thursday night. The discussion was titled Winter Wellness. Garza said when students go to middle school they expect to see their friends and go from class to class. The pandemic has disrupted that and counselors have to do their best to help them adjust and give them resources so they can focus on their education. Perry said she has seen increased suicidal ideations. She said a lot of it has to do with the virus, the political environment, not being able to pay their bills and not being able to pay rent. Superintendent Scott Muri said for several months Ector County had the highest unemployment rate in the state at 13 percent. Now it is at 10 percent and those rates create a lot of family stress. McQueen said he has seen a significant increase in anxiety from families and a number of both adults and children who have been able to manage those symptoms on their own before but need extra support now. McGuire said the role of a school counselor has changed because of the pandemic, but her campus supports her in letting her see her students. She said there is an increase in anxiety among the students and the parents. She tries to check in on the whole family and let them know the campus is a safe place. Garza said his job is to be a support for the campus, but also for the professional counselors at the school. “Our job is to really focus on emotional support, psychological support, psycho education. We are there to provide a Band-Aid for a lot of issues that come up in school,” Garza said. He added that they provide coping skills, but don’t do full-blown counseling. They offer referrals to other agencies and refer them to services that they may need. Garza said his job was simpler when students could just come to his office, but he makes himself available to virtual students as well. McGuire said signs of stress with younger children is their stomachs may start hurting or they have headaches. They may get frustrated more easily. She said she always recommends that parents check in with their children and ask how they’re doing and if they need help with anything. She added that she is also available online to her students and when she’s on break, her phone is forwarded to her cell. Garza said he’s noticed that students have had to develop a whole new kind of discipline for their school work without the teacher or Peres to motivate them. But he pointed out that a lot of college course are offered completely online. Perry said she is seeing families with increased alcohol and drug use just based on the stress they are going through. She added that there seems to be an increase in family violence based on the inability to pay bills and make sure they can put food on the table. McQueen said Centers for Families and Children offers individual and family counseling and they offer help from a secure virtual platform for those who may not want to come to the office. He noted that children are better at letting them know at they’re stressed before adults notice it. Adults may find they are drinking more, losing interest in things they used to enjoy and things that didn’t make them irritable before do now. One good thing is to ask families if they can identify things that are good about being together. During the holiday break, McGuire recommended being cognizant of how you’re feeling, checking in with your children and doing things with them. Garza said the break is a time for students to relax and forget about their worries. Perry said people should be patient with each other and noted that everyone is going through the same thing and may just be experiencing it in different ways. She said PermiaCare offers mental health first aid services free to ECISD staff. If you notice changes in friends or family ask them straight up if they plan to kill themselves. Perry said sometimes they just need someone to say they’re paying attention and they’re listening. McQueen said even without COVID the cold months can be a dark time. “One of the main things one of the things lost in 2020 is just the natural rhythm and markers throughout the year. … As much some of us fight against it, we do best when there is routine …,” McQueen said. He added that most people just need to know that you’re listening, you care and you have empathy for them. McQueen said you don’t need to come up with a solution that fixes everything. McGuire said be willing to ask the question, but more than anything be willing to listen. “You don’t have to have the perfect answer, but ask and just be willing to listen,” she said. “Sometimes they just need to get it off their chest,” she said. Garza said sometimes neighbors or someone a family goes to church with can call the school and ask if that child can see a counselor. He said the school is going to be able to give them to the resources that are necessary or refer them to another agency. As for words of wisdom, McGuire said everyone is going through the same thing, but you are not alone. She suggested slowing down and taking a couple of deep breaths. Garza said this will pass and we will eventually get through it. “The best thing I can say,” Perry said, “is be gentle with yourself. We’re going to make mistakes and we learn from them. We have to try to figure out how to pick up the pieces and move on. …” WhatsApp EducationECISDLocal News Twitter TAGS WhatsApp Counselors offer insights on COVID

The moss Drepanocladus uncinatus (Hedw.) Warnst., from coastal freshwater habitats on the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia harbours two species of hemi-edaphic oribatid mite namely Edwardzetes elongatus Wallwork (Ceratozetidae) and Trimaloconothrus flagelliformis Wallwork (Malaconothridae). Both mites feed upon microbiota and tolerate prolonged submersion in freshwater and their survival among the aquatic moss is a result of their pre-adaptation to similar conditions in flooded soil and vegetation, an absence of predators and minimal competition from other aquatic invertebrates. Freshwater habitats on sub-Antarctic islands are relatively young so that, in the future, terrestrial mites may eventually become displaced by more specialist aquatic macrofaunal colonists.
Surface ozone has been measured since 2004 at the coastal East Antarctic site of Dumont d’Urville (DDU), and since 2007 at the Concordia station located on the high East Antarctic plateau. This paper discusses long-term changes, seasonal and diurnal cycles, as well as inter-annual summer variability observed at these two East Antarctic sites. At Concordia, near-surface ozone data were complemented by balloon soundings and compared to similar measurements done at the South Pole. The DDU record is compared to those obtained at the coastal site of Syowa, also located in East Antarctica, as well as the coastal sites of Neumayer and Halley, both located on the coast of the Weddell Sea in West Antarctica. Surface ozone mixing ratios exhibit very similar seasonal cycles at Concordia and the South Pole. However, in summer the diurnal cycle of ozone is different at the two sites with a drop of ozone in the afternoon at Concordia but not at the South Pole. The vertical distribution of ozone above the snow surface also differs. When present, the ozone-rich layer located near the ground is better mixed and deeper at Concordia (up to 400 m) than at the South Pole during sunlight hours. These differences are related to different solar radiation and wind regimes encountered at these two inland sites. DDU appears to be the coastal site where the impact of the late winter/spring bromine chemistry is the weakest, but where the impact of elevated ozone levels caused by NOx snow emissions from the high Antarctic plateau is the highest. The highest impact of the bromine chemistry is seen at Halley and Neumayer, and to a lesser extent at Syowa. These three sites are only weakly impacted by the NOx chemistry and the net ozone production occurring on the high Antarctic plateau. The differences in late winter/spring are attributed to the abundance of sea ice offshore from the sites, whereas those in summer are related to the topography of East Antarctica that promotes the katabatic flow bringing oxidant-rich inland air masses to the site. There appears to be a decreasing change in summer surface ozone at the two East Antarctic sites of Concordia and DDU over the most recent period (2004–2014 and 2007–2014). Further research, including continued monitoring, is needed at these two sites to better separate the effect of synoptic transport from possible change of NOx snow emissions in response to recovery of the stratospheric ozone layer leading to penetration of more UV radiation to the surface.
If you ever wondered why your mother poured Sunday morning’s bacon grease into an empty can, it’s because mother really knew best: She was trying to prevent a human-made disaster in the sewers.Each year, millions of gallons of grease clog sewers, causing them to overflow and setting off a costly environmental and public health fiasco. But, to Susan Leal and Peter Rogers, grease is just one of many urgent issues facing water resources in the world today.“There is no life without water — biological systems do not function without it,” said Rogers, Gordon McKay Professor of Environmental Engineering in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.“Currently, there is much more attention given to energy and oil as important resources. But, while there are substitutes for oil and energy — with wind, solar, and biofuels — there is no substitute for water. It is essential for everything from the food we eat to basic hygiene,” said Leal, a water utility expert and a senior research fellow at Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative.In their new book, “Running Out of Water: The Looming Crisis and Solutions to Conserve Our Most Precious Resource,” Rogers and Leal discuss water’s global predicament as the world’s population soars to 8 billion, and present some simple ways to preserve and conserve, which include pushing lawmakers to make water a priority. Political will begins with the public, Rogers and Leal say.Leal, who had been encouraged to write a book about water as part of her fellowship, “quickly dispensed of the idea as being too ‘academic,’ ” she said. Then she met Rogers, “who was grappling with how to write a book on water geared toward a general readership audience. We agreed to write the book together with a focus on solutions to our water crisis. We eschewed the doom and gloom and decided to describe and promote the water success stories.”The result, said Rogers, was “perfect serendipity.”“In our book we give examples of the intelligent use of existing technologies, which if applied could greatly reduce the crisis to manageable proportions without necessarily requiring major sacrifices on anybody’s part,” he said.“One solution for averting the impending water crisis is water reuse,” Rogers continued. “Treating sewer water and using it for irrigation and, in some cases, as potable water. In several locales throughout the world, water reuse has been successfully implemented and accepted by consumers.”“We also describe solutions applicable to large agricultural users and involve the application of innovative technologies such as center pivots and drip irrigation, as well as new drought-resistant and high-yielding crop varieties to achieve better crop yield with less water use,” said Leal. “The book is filled with solutions that can and should be replicated.”Another conundrum is the widespread acceptance of bottled water, which has eroded the public’s faith in tap water. Not to mention, most bottles are never recycled.“Consumers should avoid the silly spending on bottled water. And, water utilities need to educate their customers about the quality of tap water and inform them that it has to meet a higher federal standard than bottled water,” said Rogers.Said Leal: “States should require that bottled water be labeled to disclose the source of the water. In many cases, the source of bottled water is municipal tap water.”Take that, Evian.
