Posted: 5/22/2015

Video analysis finds that distraction was a factor in nearly six out of 10 moderate-to-severe teen crashes. This is four times as many crashes as official estimates based on police records.

Use Birds of Prey to Control Pesky Rodent Populations

When You Look at the Hawk, the Hawk Looks at You
Let nature control rodent populations by actively protecting their natural predators—owls, hawks, falcons, eagles, and vultures—rather than using poisons to eliminate pests.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Rats, mice, and voles are commonly sighted around homes and businesses this time of year. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) encourages Californians to let nature control rodent populations by actively protecting their natural predators—owls, hawks, falcons, eagles, and vultures—rather than using poisons to eliminate pests. Environmentally friendly tactics (such as providing tall trees that raptors favor) will encourage these birds of prey to hang around your yard and remove rodents for you.

Most raptors use the same nest for many years and some even pass from one generation to the next. Bald eagles are known to have used the same nest as long as 35 years. That makes them an excellent long-term control for rodent populations in the immediate area.

Uveiling a United Passion

Posted: 5/8/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - As United Way California Capital Region dedicated last week to thanking its volunteers, donors, and partners, the nonprofit also unveiled a new public mural called “United Passion” that it commissioned from local artist BAMR. California Society of Health-System Pharmacists donated the space at 13th and H streets in Sacramento.

“The mural symbolizes the body and passion of United Way,” BAMR said. “The arm is powerful, nimble, and diverse, representing United Way’s unique position in the Sacramento region. The hand represents the combined caring devotion from United Way’s donors, volunteers, and community partners. The heart, representing our united passion, is intended to look as though it were made of water to signify renewal, transformation, and life.”
