Pennsylvania may delist bald eagle as threatened

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by BUD COLE Special to The Press in Focus

Bald eagles, ospreys and other birds of prey were practically wiped out until the pesticide, dichlorodi-phenyltrichloroethane (DDT), was banned in the United States in 1972.

The insect-killing chemical was developed for use in agriculture in the late 1940's. No one knew at the time that the most widely-used pesticide, DDT, would ultimately create such a devastating effect on raptor species.

It's all a matter of control

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. I'm having a devil of time controlling my bladder. Any suggestions?

About 10 percent of men and women over the age of 65 have trouble with bladder control, also know officially as urinary incontinence. Women suffer from this more than men.

During urination, muscles in the bladder contract, forcing urine into the urethra, a tube that carries urine out of the body. At the same time, muscles surrounding the urethra relax and let the urine pass. If the bladder muscles contract or the muscles surrounding the urethra relax without warning, the result is incontinence.
