A group headquartered in Gouldsboro, Maine has been giving round the clock care to two surviving kittens dumped with their mother and four siblings in the freezing cold on the morning of New Year’s Eve.
On New Year’s Eve morning we received a call from a woman who found a box with a momma cat and 6 one day old kittens by her dumpster. We rushed to her house to find 2 frozen dead kittens and 2 half frozen kittens and 2 fairly warm kittens.
We continued caring for everyone and little Peace would have seizures which progressively got worse and on Monday, January 7, we set his spirit free.
Today, January 16, we are still tube feeding Faith and Happy but they are lively and seem to be getting better.
There is a lot of interest in adopting the kittens, but no one has yet offered to give Mama Hope a permanent home.  The group is accepting donations to help with the care of the kittens . LBZ, Channel 2 out of Bangor visited Forgotten Felines of Maine for a report broadcast last night. On the eve of Happy’s 3-week old birthday she decided to try to suck from her bottle.

Kitten and Lamb Form Bond in the Absence of Their MothersAnimal bonds are often forged across different species. Cannabis likes a comfortable room temperature when growing indoors, or a little warmer - not too dry, not too humid. Different afflictions can happen from high or low temps, so let me break that down for you. A plant that is grown in relatively cold temps can survive, but it will never grow as fast or as well as a plant that is given proper temps.
Cannabis plants like higher temps when you supplement the grow room with CO2, but there are a few important things you must know about CO2. The temperatures experienced by your plants while growing can have an effect on the color of buds and leaves, either suppressing or bringing out the blues, purples, and pinks if your strain has the genetics for it.
By keeping temps a bit cooler during the dark period, you will actually encourage your plants to grow as fast as possible.
Temperature and relative humidity (RH) are closely related to each other and each has an important affect the other. Plants can thrive at different relative humidities depending on the temperature of the air. When growing cannabis plants, relative humidity(RH) is just as important as the temperature of the air, and is something you should pay attention to, especially if you notice that your grow room is particular dry or humid.
You need to control both temperature and RH at the same time to get the best results when growing cannabis. If the air is too cool and humid (low VPD), plants grow slowly and are prone to problems with mold or fungus.
Clones do not have a root system yet, and so they need to get all their water via transpiration of the leaves until their roots are fully formed. Young seedlings tend to grow faster with relatively high humidity and warmer temps, but as the plant gets older, it flourishes even if temps and humidity drop a bit. A cannabis plant’s ability to withstand drier and colder conditions tends to increase as the plant gets older. Slightly cooler night temps (that stay within the specified range) tend to promote the fastest and healthiest vegetative growing for cannabis plants. Unless you are supplementing with CO2, you should strive to keep temps under 80°F (26°C) throughout the flowering stage!
It is especially important to make sure buds are not exposed to too-hot temps after week 6 or 7 of flowering, as this is when the terpene content in the buds really starts to ramp up.
While starting with good genetics and growing your plants properly are key to growing top-self quality buds, your job isn't over when you cut down your plants at harvest. The main thing you must do as a grower to professionally dry and cure your buds is maintain the proper temperature and humidity during the process. Many cannabis growers worry about how their indoor grow lights will affect the temperature of their grow room. However, if you want to get bigger yields, you’ll have to keep adding more and more CFLs, and the heat they give off will start building up.
I generally don’t recommend growing more than 1 or 2 cannabis plants at a time under CFLs - if you want to grow more plants than that, I highly recommend upgrading to a small HPS grow light instead. Other fluorescent lighting uses very similar technology as CFLs, but the bulbs come in different shapes, some of which can be more suitable for growing.
For example, a lot of people recommend that new growers get CFLs instead of HIDs so that there's less heat in the grow room. LEDs are known for needing just a little electricity and for producing less heat than HID grow lights like MH or HPS lights.
This thermometer and humidity monitor is accurate (at least when compared to the others I have in the grow room). Exhaust System: Make sure you have a good exhaust system to pull out hot air and increase air circulation to your plants. Other Ways to Cool: If you have good air exchange and have tried all the steps above, but the temperature in the grow area is still too hot, you will need to use a proven way to cool your grow area. If your plant is not insulated from the cold (for example if it's growing in the middle of your garage, basement, attic, etc), then the first step is to make sure your plant is properly insulated.
Then you can buy rolls of insulating materials for cheap at your local home improvement store, and use these to insulate the outside of your grow area.
With a properly insulated grow box, your grow lights will likely provide enough heat to keep you cannabis plants warm unless you live in a freezing cold area, or perhaps if you're in the middle of winter or a cold spell. If you must get a heater to keep your plants warm, avoid letting it blow hot air directly on your plants, and especially avoid ever having it in the tent with your plants. The following model of heater is a great example of the type of heater you want for your grow room - it puts out gentle heat and has a thermostat you can use to have it automatically turn on and off as needed.


1.1 Students learn to identify the role of enzymes in metabolism, describe their chemical composition and use a simple model to describe their specificity on substrates. Most people would know that some animals (like frogs, snakes and lizards) are a€?cold-bloodeda€? and that when the weather is cold, these animals are less active than when ita€™s warm.
Each enzyme has a unique shape - it is this shape that means it will make just one reaction go.
Enzymes are not usually used up in chemical reactions - they can be used over and over, so they can be present in tiny amounts.
Enzymes are difficult to study in high school but there is one in saliva that we can study. Explain why our bodies need to make large amounts of digestive enzymes (like pepsin) but only tiny amounts of other enzymes (like hexokinase, which is present in every cell and catalyses the breakdown of glucose to glucose 6-phosphate).
This experiment is important to addressing the skills outcome H11 (a€?A student justifies the appropriateness of a particular investigation plana€?).
I hope you have a picture of many chemical reactions occurring in your own body right now, each one occurring because of the presence of tiny amounts of enzymes. So, it is important that the temperature and acidity in your body has to be kept at the right level.
Maybe you can think of some changes that occur in your body when the temperature gets too low! The first step to prevent your death is for your body to recognise the change in your body temperature. I have only considered what happens when there is a danger of you over-heating but there are many aspects of your body that have to be kept constant - for example, oxygen, sugar and water levels in the blood. Nerve impulses travel very quickly, and travel from one small part of the body to another small part.
Hormones travel relatively slowly in blood, from an endocrine gland to a number of target organs. An example might be the hormone adrenalin, travelling from the adrenal glands above the kidneys to skin (constricting blood vessels), the pacemaker in the brain (increasing heart rate), the liver (increasing the level of glucose in the blood) and many other organs.
At the Mid-Atlantic ridge, a€?black smokersa€? raise the temperature of the ocean above 100oC without the water boiling (because of the very high pressure). There are other organisms that thrive in temperatures close to the freezing point of water. The temperatures at which organisms are found and the range over which they can survive is because of the enzymes in their bodies.
A Grylloblattid - (Grylloblatta bifratrilecta) an insect related to crickets and cockroaches that lives in snow. Leta€™s make our ectotherm the impressive but relatively harmless (if left alone) Red-bellied Black Snake (Pseudechis porphyriacus). Comparing our ectoderm (Black Snake) and endoderm (Wombat) it is clear that both have behaviours and bodies that help them to survive extremes. Your textbook does not give any examples of plants responding to temperature change - only adaptations to temperature extremes -so Eucalypts have drooping leaves which helps them to avoid overheating when the Sun is high; deciduous trees drop their leaves which helps them to avoid frost damage. Responses of plants to temperature change are not common but there has been great interest from horticulturalists over several hundreds of years in the ability of Rhododendron spp to curl their leaves in response to temperature change. Most people would know that some animals (like frogs, snakes and lizards) are a€?cold-bloodeda€? and that when the weather is cold, these animals are less active than when ita€™s warm.A  Why is this?
Enzymes are not usually used up in chemical reactions - they can be used over and over, so they can be present in tiny amounts.A  But most importantly, they only work under special conditions - a narrow temperature range and a narrow pH (acidity) range. That usually doesna€™t happen because things happen in your body to cool your body.A  You sweat, surface veins open up so that blood flows closer to the cooling air, and you breathe more often releasing warm our from your lungs. This is a practical investigation involving second-hand research.A  Before you start it, you should read these notes. I have only considered what happens when there is a danger of you over-heating but there are many aspects of your body that have to be kept constant - for example, oxygen, sugar and water levels in the blood.A  For each, there are receptors that detect the changes and a control centre (usually in the brain) that counteracts the change. Nerve impulses travel very quickly, and travel from one small part of the body to another small part.A  An example might be from a fingertip to a very small part of the brain when we touch something. There are other organisms that thrive in temperatures close to the freezing point of water.A  For example, there are bacteria-like cells that grow on snow turning it red (to produce a€?watermelon snowa€?). On the other hand, individual organisms can generally survive in a fairly narrow range.A  For example, tropical fish die in cold water, yet antarctic fish would die in tropical waters.
Choose an ectothermic animal species, an endothermic animal species and a plant species.A  Dona€™t forget the advice about second-hand research, especially to acknowledge your sources. Your textbook does not give any examples of plants responding to temperature change - only adaptations to temperature extremes -so Eucalypts have drooping leaves which helps them to avoid overheating when the Sun is high;A  deciduous trees drop their leaves which helps them to avoid frost damage.

As the summer heat begins to taper off, cold weather is approaching fast and cold stress should be taken every bit as seriously as heat exhaustion. The bad news: landscapers don’t typically get “snow days,” or a day off because it’s chilly outside. ClothingWearing warm clothing is important, but on those really cold days – consider wearing two or even three layers of warm clothing. BreaksDuring those days of extreme cold temperatures, be sure to take an extra break or two. Do not end your break and resume working in the cold weather until you have allowed your body enough time to recuperate.
Place several chemical hot packs inside the first aid kit just incase you can’t get to a warm location as quickly as needed.
Stay awareThis may be the most important step to staying safe in extreme cold winter weather conditions. If you notice yourself, or any coworkers, showing more serious symptoms – blue skin, dilated pupils or an extremely low pulse and slow breathing – call 911 immediately.

We rushed the 4 to the Eastern Maine Emergency Veterinary Clinic where one of the half frozen kittens died. By Wednesday, Faith and Happy stopped eating and on Friday they made their third trip to the veterinary office. Donations can be made at the FundRazr donation page Help Hope and her Frozen Kittens, or at the Forgotten Felines of Maine website. If it feels too hot or too cold for you in your grow area, it’s probably too hot or too cold for your cannabis plants as well. There should be a 10 degree difference between night and day temps for the best results (this is especially important in the flowering stage for highest quality bud development).
Cannabis generally prefers a cooler temperature at night, and slightly cooler temps during the dark period will encourage your plant to grow as fast as possible. Once the air becomes too saturated with water, it will tend to form dew or films of water over leaves, which leads to mold. Outdoor-grown plants tend to be much tougher about temperature fluctuations than indoor plants. In addition to improving taste and smell, terpenes can affect the color of plants and cannabis buds. If you follow the right method, you never have to worry about mold or overdrying, and you will get perfectly cured buds every time. While not as stealthy or small as CFLs, other fluorescent lighting can be a cheap and simply way to grow young cannabis plants, and is used by gardeners around the world.
And while that’s true for the bigger models of HID lights, I think a lot of growers overestimate how much heat will be produced by the smaller HID models. So it is recommended that you get a tool that will allow you to measure both temperature and humidity at the same time. If you don’t have an exhaust fan pulling hot air from your grow lights outside, fixing that is your first step. It’s always a great idea to install fans in the grow room to help circulate the air inside the tent. The heat radiates out instead of being pushed out (which you don't really want in your grow room). However, because it can maintain its body temperature within a narrow range, wombats can remain active over a much wider temperature range.

The good news: there are things that you can do to help you survive the winter’s worst weather. Although it may not be the most appealing clothing, you’ll thank yourself for remembering that extra sweatshirt when wind chills are below zero and dropping.
Tight clothing will reduce blood circulation, keeping warm blood from reaching your extremities. Wearing an insulated hat that covers most of your head and face will help keep your entire body warmer. During your breaks, find a warm and dry location that will allow your body to return to normal temperatures. This includes a thermos for warm liquids and a first aid kit designed to help you out in cases of cold stress. We would put them with momma Hope for a few hours each day but the oddity is that she only has one nipple. And never forget about supercropping, the ultimate way to break down the height of your plant at any time.
I have several that I've picked up over the years, and they all sit in my grow room now. If it gets too hot in the middle of the day, you could set your timer to turn your lights off for 6 hours during that part of the day. If the air outside the grow tent is already too warm, you will need to get an AC to pre-cool the air before it enters the grow tent.
Most heaters can be set to turn on and off depending on the temperature, so they're only turning on when needed.
We are proud to be an IT service company that leverages comprehensive business and technology solutions across diverse domains. No veterinarian can understand what happened to the others (maybe frozen) so she cannot nurse. An exhaust system is important for more than just keeping temps down, it will also improve the air circulation your plants need to thrive. I like to point fans slightly over or under the canopy so it’s not directly pointed at plants, or sometimes I will point the fan directly at a wall near the plants so it causes the air to move without moving the plants around too much. This strategy will not fix a major heat problem, but can help alleviate symptoms of heat stress during a short hot spell or heat wave.
No matter how strong your exhaust system, it won’t be able to bring the temperature lower than your ambient room temperature. Plus it comes with a timer, so you can have it preset to turn on just before lights go off for the night (or whatever you need for your space). Applying grassroots thinking, we address real world challenges that lead to successful transformations. By maintaining lower night temperatures in the last few weeks before your cannabis harvest, you will help bring out colors in your cannabis (purple, pink, blue, etc). Most strains will only grow green buds, but if your plant can produce other colors, cooler night temps is one way to bring them out!
