paint by numbers for adults – By Numbers
This 1975 collection excels in large part due to its modest goal. It’s the Who’s singer-songwriter record. Without the ostensible shield his “rock operas” provided, Pete Townshend’s personal demons strut about nakedly. Not a pretty sight, but an involving spectacle nevertheless. “They Are All in Love” and “How Many Friends” are forgotten Who songs, but they’ve aged beautifully. John Entwistle’s “Success Story” sequences nicely with the rest of the album. And “However Much I Booze,” “Dreaming from the Waist,” and “In a Hand or a Face” are great decade-early exercises in mid-life self-pity. There are only three bonus tracks here–live versions of “Squeeze Box,” “Dreaming from the Waist,” and the earlier “Behind Blue Eyes”–but By Numbers is such a cohesive collection that they’re less welcome extras than annoying distractions. Still, By Numbers now stands as one of the linchpins in a great band’s catalog. –Steven Stolder
Giant Asian Longhorn Beetle (Brood X, New York City Gozilla type)
Other Common Names: Killer Asian Longhorned Beetle, killer ALB, Brood X ALB, New York City Godzilla ALB, Killer Beetle
Latin Name: Anoplophora giganteous glabripennis
Specimen collected by: The United States Department of Agriculture
Origin: Greenpoint area, Brooklyn, New York, USA
Specimen’s collected Date: August 12, 2002
Size: 2-5/8 x 1 inch (matrix is 2-5/8 x 1-1/2 inch), 65 x 28 mm (matrix is 7.0 x 6.5 cm). This specimen is an adult female.
Description of the specimen: The Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) was first found by an unsuspected landlord of an apartment building in Greenpoint area of Brooklyn, New York in the United States in 1996. Scientists believe it came to the United States by way of wood crating and shipping pallets that originated in China. In Asia, the beetle is a major pest of poplar plantations. The beetle also attacks a large range of tree species in North America, including maple, elm, willow, horsechestnut, mulberry, birch, green ash, sycamore, and London planetree. Like chestnut blight and Dutch elm disease, the Asian longhorned beetle has the potential to severely deplete our precious urban forests and permanently change our hardwood forests. The Chinese name for the Asian longhorned beetle translates to “Starry Sky beetle,” a description of the beetle’s shiny black body and white spots. The beetles are large, up to one and a half inches in length, with long black-and-white banded antennae. The threat to trees begins when adult females lay eggs under the bark of host trees. After the eggs hatch, the larvae bore extensive tunnels into the tree’s center as they feed and grow. In the spring, the larvae emerge as adult beetles, creating round exit holes that measure up to half an inch in diameter. The newly emerged adults feed and mate. The adult females may fly to new trees or lay eggs in the trees from which they emerged. Then the life cycle of the Asian longhorned beetle begins again, and the relentless tunneling by generations of larvae kills healthy trees within a few years of first becoming infested.
In addition to Greenpoint area of Brooklyn, New York, the Asian longhorned beetle has also been found in Bayside, Queens (February 1999), Flushing, Queens (July 1999), the Upper East Side of Manhattan (August 1999), the Lower East Side of Manhattan (June 2000), Corona, Queens (July 2000), and Murray Hill in Manhattan (October 2001). Outside of New York City, the Asian longhorned beetle has been found infesting urban trees in Amityville, New York; Chicago, Illinois (July 1998), and Braunau, Austria (July 2001). Since the discovery of the beetle in 1996, Parks, the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have been engaged in an ongoing effort to eradicate the beetle from the United States. Surveys of public and private trees to identify trees infested by the Asian longhorned beetle are ongoing. Once found, infested trees are removed from the roots, chipped and burnt entirely to prevent the spread of the beetle. As of November 2001, over 3,400 infested trees have been removed from public and private property in New York City. In addition to destroying infested trees, federal and state quarantines prevent the movement of wood from infested areas in the United States. The purpose of the quarantines is to prevent the accidental spread of the beetle to new areas through the movement of infested wood. In April 2000, the USDA injected trees susceptible to the Asian longhorned beetles in New York City with a systemic insecticide. This treatment may reduce the trees’ chances of becoming infested and slow the spread of the beetle.
In 2001, in Greenpoint, a group of new subspecies of Asian longhorned beetle was discovered. Although their body shapes, colors and patterns are almost identical (except their much more robust legs), the new adult beetles (both males and females) are more than twice larger (the body weight is eight times heavier) than the common Asian Longhorned beetles. The adult female beetles are much more active and fly often to seek out the new host tree in much larger areas (up to 12 miles) to lay eggs. These pests also lay almost three times more eggs, and their time to reach sexual maturity is much shorter. (In another words, they multiple much faster than the common ALB.) In addition, the adults of this large creature are extremely aggressive. Reports were filed about the vicious nature of this new animal; they attacked other animals such as mouse, rats, squirrels, wild cats, and even pigeons with their razor- sharp teeth. Another reports also indicated that the adult beetles gathered corps of those animals to devour at night in great numbers. These offensive behaviors were never observed in the common ALB, although these behaviors are normal for ground beetles. The Ground Beetle is a common name for swift-running, mostly ca
