Taming the wild mango

There is a wide diversity of wild mango species that bear edible fruit. They are related to the mango we all know and love, Mangifera indica, but they are not the same. These wild, edible mangoes, which originated in Asia, are in danger of extinction.

On Gardening: Pineapple lily easy to grow, exotically beautiful

Once you start growing the pineapple lily, you'll wonder why you haven't been growing it for years. Sparkling Burgundy was the first one to intrigue me at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens as it was thriving in what I might normally consider extreme conditions. It was and still is growing in full sun, practically no attention from horticulture staff and zero irrigation. Yet, every year it is there blooming with a Shoal Creek vitex, fire bush, and torch lily in a unique combination.

Pet Vet: His bearded dragon lizard no longer wants to eat

I think a lot of people realize that veterinary medicine can present challenges different from those in human medicine. Certainly, our companions have some similar physiology and structures to our own, however the main challenge is that veterinary medicine patients are not as communicative as humans are with their physicians. I have seldom had a patient "tell me where it hurts."

Air Force special-ops trainee Paul Casas, on being diagnosed with Moyamoya disease, a rare brain disease.

Paul Casas, a 28-year-old Special Ops Air Force trainee, first became aware of his symptoms when his left arm would go numb and his memory began to slip. He was diagnosed wtih Moyamoya disease, a rare condition that causes blood flow to the brain to be restricted. A University of Miami neurosurgeon, Jacques Morcos, M.D., operated on him on May 24 at Jackson Memorial, performing a double-barrel bypass that would essentially give him a new artery to supply blood flow to the right side of his brain. Four days after the operation, Casas was discharged from the hospital, cured. His symptoms immediately disappeared, with his memory immediately coming back. Casas shared his experience at a new conference on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.
