HALIFAX — Canada’s government authorized hundreds of troops on Sunday to help clear trees after Storm Dorian tore through the Atlantic coast overnight, leaving almost half a million people in three provinces without power.Dorian, classified as a strong post-tropical storm, hit Nova Scotia hard, leaving more than 370,000 people – a third of the population – without power. About 100,000 others in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island also had no electricity.Though no longer a hurricane, the storm is still packing cyclone-strength winds reaching about 130 kph (81 mph), the Canadian Hurricane Centre said.“Dorian will slowly weaken as it moves northeastward across northern Newfoundland later today and east of Labrador tonight,” the center said overnight.The defense ministry said it would send up to 700 troops to help in the clean-up, and Nova Scotians have been asked to stay off the roads so that crews can safely remove trees and debris to restore power.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.“There is extensive damage,” Karen Hutt, chief executive office of Nova Scotia Power Inc, said in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. “This storm was intense” and it will be “days not hours” before power is restored to everyone.The storm blew over a large construction crane in downtown Halifax, the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, on Saturday. No serious injuries have been reported.Dorian ripped into the Bahamas a week ago with Category 5 winds and some gusts topping 320 kph (200 mph), leaving a trail of destruction and death, with 43 confirmed dead and the number expected to rise.(Writing by Steve Scherer in Ottawa; Editing by Howard Goller)

MILAN (AP):On his 300th Serie A match as coach, Massimiliano Allegri appeared to throw caution to the wind as Juventus fielded an all-out attacking line-up against Lazio yesterday.But it paid off as Juventus bounced back from last weekend’s defeat at Fiorentina to beat Lazio 2-0, with goals from Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain inside 16 minutes.”I woke up on Wednesday morning and I decided to change things,” Allegri said. “I decided so because we were coming off not so good a match in Florence and today (yesterday) was the right match for that sort of experiment.”We won’t always play like this, but the response the team gave me was positive: we played well, with quality and sacrifice. And despite the attacking imbalance, we still did well in defence, not risking anything. But we have to maintain this tempo, irrespective of the formation.”There have been question marks this season over who works best with Higuain and Allegri found a novel solution, by utilising all his main attackers in a new 4-2-3-1 formation.NEW-LOOK JUVENTUSMiralem Pjanic partnered Sami Khedira in midfield, with Juan Cuadrado, Dybala and Mario Mandzukic just behind Higuain.It took just five minutes for the new-look Juventus to take the lead, with Mandzukic knocking down a long ball for Dybala’s half-volley into the bottom left corner from just outside the area.Juve doubled their lead in the 16th when Cuadrado crossed from the right and Higuain tapped it into the bottom right corner from six yards for his seventh goal in the past five league matches.Inter recorded an eighth successive win in all competitions but only after struggling to break down relegation-threatened Palermo.Substitute Joao Mario scored the only goal of the game in the 65th when he was left unmarked to volley in Antonio Candreva’s cross.Both teams were reduced to 10 men late on, with Inter defender Cristian Ansaldi sent off in the 80th for a second yellow card. Inter protested and coach Stefano Pioli was also dismissed.Palermo midfielder Alessandro Gazzi was also shown a second yellow and sent off in stoppage time.Inter leapfrogged AC Milan into fifth, a point behind Lazio, although the Rossoneri have a game in hand.
By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaWould you buy turnip greens riddled with holes nibbled by insects? No, and that’s why Georgia produce farmers battle them. Unfortunately, one of the toughest in the world calls Georgia home.At the very least, the diamondback moth is resilient. At most, it can be unstoppable, said Alton “Stormy” Sparks, a vegetable entomologist with the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.Given enough time and opportunity, this insect pest can overcome anything. And it feeds exclusively on cabbage, leafy greens and other related crops, which are worth about $53 million each year in Georgia.”It doesn’t take a lot of damage to make leafy greens unmarketable,” Sparks said. “Consumers tolerate little damage to the cabbage, collards, mustard or other leafy greens they buy in grocery stores.”The diamondback moth, or DBM, has a bundle of biological abilities that allow it to overcome insecticides, the main tool used to fight them. In fact, only one other insect in the world, the green peach aphid, can do it as well or better, he said. This aphid is in Georgia but doesn’t cause much trouble.Farmers have thrown dozens of insecticides across many chemical classes at the DBM over the past half-century, Sparks said. It has developed resistance to every one.A DBM doesn’t mutate to resist insecticides, he said. It overcomes them through a process known as resistance selection. Like a person whose genetic makeup may help him fight disease, a DBM in a population may have the one inherited DNA quirk that stops an insecticide from hurting it.Take a cabbage field in south-central Georgia, where most leafy greens are grown. The grower notices too many DBM caterpillars beginning to feed on the field. He sprays the field with the latest, most effective spray to stop them. The spray handles almost all of the DBMs, but a few have an inherited-by-chance DNA quirk to not be hurt by that insecticide that day.Those caterpillars develop, do what they do and make more caterpillars, passing on the quirk. In the heat of summer, a DBM can go from birth to giving birth in just two weeks. So the new, resistant population quickly begins to grow, live and thrive in the field.”I’ve seen entire cabbage fields harrowed up because the diamondback moths got completely out of control,” he said.Growers can go from spraying a few times in a few months to spraying twice a week or more in an effort to stop DBMs. This control can cost millions of dollars each year in Georgia. An average insecticidal spray costs a grower $20 per acre. Georgia grows roughly 21,000 acres of leafy greens per year.To overcome resistance selection, growers rotate several insecticides to try to kill all DBM caterpillars in a field. There are currently only three they can use.Sparks said a host-free period, or a time when no leafy greens are grown in Georgia during the summer, would help. With no food, DBM populations would decrease drastically statewide.But this would be hard to start, with economics playing a major role. Georgia growers have a market advantage and can grow leafy greens almost year-round.DBMs sometimes completely disappear in Georgia, with no obvious reason. Although scientists around the world have studied them for decades, there’s more to be learned.”A lot of my time is spent evaluating chemistries to fight diamondback moths and developing programs to educate growers on best management strategies for them,” Sparks said.He’s testing the effectiveness of new insecticides now that chemical companies want to sell growers to fight DBMs in Georgia. But he knows the moth will likely develop resistance to them, too, eventually.”With proper resistance management,” he said, “we hope to delay the development of resistance as long as possible.”
