s nearly as possiblethe same in all cages. It will be understood that 10 gallons ofsolution were applied to 8 bushels of manure in all the cage experi-ments mentioned below, unless some other explanation is given.After treatment in this way the doors of the cages were closed andthe flytraps put in place. The cages were examined every day. Theescape of any larva? into the drip pan was noted, and the volumeof the drip water measured and a sample analyzed. A quart sam-ple of manure was removed through the small door at the side ofthe cage after a day or two and the percentage of living and deadmaggots determined. The larval counts of quart samples werevery unsatisfactory so far as indicating the comparative larvicidalvalue of the chemicals, but the results of some of these counts aregiven in the tables. After five to seven days flies began to emerge, and then it was nec-essary to darken the cages with black cloth tacked on the sides, as seen Bui. 118, U. S. Dept. cf Agriculture. Plate I.

healthy food choices
Image by Pencils for Kids, Libore, Niger
Willowbrook Publc School in Thornhil,l Ontario is working hard to keep fit and healthy while raising money for needy students in Libore, Niger, Africa. In order to stay fit, students are running in the gym twice a week before school begins at 8:30 am. These energetic and committed kids are also trying to get their peers to make healthier food choices by selling healthy snacks that have been donated by local grocery stores. In October, Longo’s donated 100 apples which were sold at the school during recess. The money raised was donated to Pencils 4 Kids to support their new library and educational programs. Bravo to the staff and students at Willowbrook. Healthy snacks will continue to be sold at the school.

Aneesh Chopra, White House Chief Technology Officer, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack present the Corporate Recognition Award to Ben Reis, Brookline, Massachusetts, Team Leader of the developers of "Food Hero," of The Apps for Healthy Kids competition at the White House, in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, September 29, 2010. The Apps for Healthy Kids competition is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation. The competition challenges software developers, game designers, students and other innovators to develop fun and engaging software tools and games to urge children, especially “tweens” (children ages 9-12) – directly or through their parents – to eat better and be more physically active. "Food Hero," is a game that encourages kids to make more nutritious food choices and become more physically active. Eating healthy balanced meals every day helps you build strength. The goal of the game is to become a Food Hero by eating right and completing a set of running, biking and swimming challenges. USDA Photo 10di1506-112 by Bob Nichols.
