By Mark CzarnotaUniversity of GeorgiaPansies are easy to grow, they come in a myriad of colorcombinations and they can take cool weather when few other plantscan. No wonder they’re one of the Southeast’s premier beddingplants. But even pansies can be troubled by weeds.The weeds in pansy plantings are usually annual plants such ascommon chickweed and annual bluegrass. In small plantings, mostcan easily be controlled with mulches and occasional hand weeding.In larger plantings, though, people often turn to herbicides tocontrol their weed problems. The number of chemicals you can usein pansies is limited.A few pre-emergent products are out there: Dimension (dithiopyr),Pendulum and Corral (pendimethalin), Pennant (metolachlor),Snapshot (isoxaben and trifluralin), Surflan (oryzalin) and XL(benefin and oryzalin).That’s allThe list is short. But these products can provide excellentcontrol of many weeds coming from seed. They’re designed tocontrol germinating seeds. They need a rain or watering of aboutan inch within a week of when you apply them.Some of them come in both granular and sprayable forms. Granularherbicides are more popular with homeowners. They don’t requireany mixing. And they’re more forgiving when you don’t apply themjust right.None of these products, though, control all possible weeds. Thereare no “silver bullets” when it comes to herbicides. Most ofthese products or combinations of them will control 80 percent to95 percent of the weeds from seed.You will likely have some weeds you can’t control withpre-emergent herbicides. But most of those can be easily removedby hand.’Established’All of these products are meant to be used on establishedpansies. The plants have to be in the ground for some time, andthe soil has to be settled around the root ball. You can settlethe soil by firmly pressing it around the root ball as you plantand then watering the plants in.Labels often stress that word “established.” The key is to avoidletting pre-emergent herbicides reach the roots of plants.Once weed grasses have emerged in pansy beds, only one product islabeled to control them: Vantage (sethoxydim).Vantage is mixed with water and sprayed over the top of pansiesto control emerged and actively growing grasses. It won’t keepseeds from germinating.Don’t apply Vantage on hot, sunny days. It can cause minor damageto pansy plants then.But wait…All of these herbicides were labeled for use on pansies when thisarticle was written. But labeling can change. Make sure you readand understand the label before using any pesticide.As herbicides go off patent, many third-party manufacturers maymarket them under different trade names. Glyphosate, the activeingredient in Roundup, for instance, is now available in morethan 50 formulations.Before using any herbicide, always consider the health of theplant. Make sure to consider the plants’ cultural requirements,too. A quick canopy of pansy flowers and foliage will helpoutcompete the weeds.Plant pansies where they’ll get only 4 to 6 hours of directsunlight. Make sure the site drains well and the soil is amendedwith some organic matter. Test the soil. Make sure the pansiesare getting adequate fertilization.Most important, make sure the pansy bed is mulched after youplant. Besides adding organic matter and maintaining soilmoisture and temperature, mulches help keep weeds fromgerminating.A good 2-inch layer of pine bark, pine straw, or shreddedhardwood bark should help make for healthy, happy pansies.(Mark Czarnota is an ornamental weed control specialist withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.)

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Concluding 2015’s summer superheroes, Director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four premiered Friday, rehashing a tweaked origin story but overall a “fantastic” bore.Like a rite of passage, superhero reboots are forever trapped reiterating the transformative events that separate their protagonists from mankind. This past decade treated comic book fans to some promising adaptions, but after three (now four) unsuccessful attempts since 1994, the Fantastic Four films have become a little more than a failed experiment. It begs the question: how many times are we going to watch the Fantastic Four’s science project go wrong or Bruce Wayne’s parents die or Peter Parker get bitten by a radioactive spider? What is the necessity of repeating their origins?It’s not a direct adaption, though. Originally set during the Space Race, borrowing the previous installment’s idea of modernizing the new Fantastic Four was a plus. But the film downplays the millennial cast as immature college youths. For supposed geniuses capable of mastering inter-dimensional travel, watching the famed freak accident triggered from a drunken idea, which was shared over a flask of alcohol, was disappointing.The life-altering event, and anything involving the characters as the Fantastic Four, occurred about halfway through the movie. Not before building up an hour of Reed Richard’s (Miles Teller) unnecessary childhood and academic studies, as well as explaining the teleportation device in a setup that stretched longer than Mr. Fantastic. Even when united, Marvel’s First Family shared anything but familial chemistry.That’s right, the main antagonist of this film wasn’t the disfigured and dull Dr. Doom (Toby Kebbell), but Marvel’s old arch-nemesis, character development. The plot never allowed the characters time to connect with each other. Any bonding was implied off-screen, as the plot jumped over significant time gaps. Instead, the wasted talent’s personalities come off more transparent than the Invisible Girl (Kate Mara).From there, the plot sprinted to a final battle that no undeveloped superheroes could save, not even the Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan) or a CGI-aggressive Thing (Jamie Bell). If the characters aren’t clicking, the audience isn’t, either.It’s hard to say if Trank’s Fantastic Four improved from the film’s distant 1994-2007 relatives. With lackluster characters and a ton of setup, the latest installment disappointed with an overused origin story that was uneventful, unremarkable, and most definitely forgettable. You know, until the series is rebooted again.

The National Police’s campaign against alleged fake news about the recently passed omnibus law on job creation has drawn criticism from civil society organizations who say that authorities are trying to “intimidate” critics.“The police’s move to tackle hoaxes is a form of intimidation against the public who widely reject the newly passed Job Creation Law,” nongovernmental organizations grouped under the Indonesian People’s Faction (FRI) said in a written statement on Friday.The group called on the police to refrain from hastily labeling public criticism of the law on social media as “hoaxes” and charging anyone who expresses their opposition with criminal acts. The telegram also drew wide criticism, including from the Southeast Asia Freedom of Expression Network (SAFEnet) who called on the National Police to repeal the telegram as it was against the basic principles of freedom of expression.“The telegram shows that the National Police are not carrying out their duties in protecting the public,” SAFEnet executive director Damar Juniarto said last week.“In contrast, the police turn their backs on civil society and follow government orders to protect investors’ interests by violating the freedom of those expressing their opposition to the Job Creation Law.”Police have arrested at least one person, a 36-year-old blogger from Makassar, South Sulawesi, for allegedly tweeting false information about the omnibus law. The blogger was later released because of a lack of evidence, one of her lawyers said.National Police spokesperson Insp. Gen. Argo Yuwono did not immediately respond to requests for comment.Topics : The FRI also questioned how police were able to determine what information about the law was false, given that the final draft of the law has yet to be made available to the public. “We invite the police to participate in the open debates regarding the Job Creation Law so that the public will be able to know who is spreading hoaxes,” the statement said.The FRI also cited a telegram issued by National Police chief Gen. Idham Azis on Oct. 2, which instructed police to carry out “cyberpatrols” on social media and “media management” to propagate negative sentiments regarding workers’ strikes and public protests against the omnibus bill.“These police actions are an abuse of power,” the statement said.
