In case you missed the live chat yesterday, you can watch a replay of the discussion between Sarah E. Needleman, Wall Street Journal reporter; Orly Lobel, Professor of Law at University of San Diego; Carey Smith, CEO of Big Ass Fans; and our own Chris Noon, on whether or not the skills is gap real or if business owners are simply too picky—or even just too cheap—to train possible candidates.
At 2:30pm EST today, July 10, Chris Noon will be chatting with the editor of the Wall Street Journal about small businesses. The segment is titled, “Is the Skills Gap Real?” and discusses why many small-business owners say they’re struggling to find job candidate.
Peter Keough of the Boston Globe asks in his editorial piece, “Why are we obsessed with having a pretty lawn?”
Historically, it could have been seen as a sign of spiritual purity. These days, “lawns offer an escape from daily drudgery, freedom from iPhones, and reconnection with the grit and smell and ephemera of nature.”

Although red thread disease is most severe in the spring and fall, the pathogen can develop during any time of the year when the weather is cool and wet. The disease leaves irregular patches of tan/yellowing grass. From afar, however, affected areas tend to appear reddish in color due to the growth of stromata, thick red fibers of fungus stemming from infected leaves. After infecting the grass, the stromata can sustain in soil for two years. Once they are fully germinated, the stromata spreads by infecting neighboring grass leaf blades through their stomata, tiny openings typically located on the outer layer of the leaf’s skin. When humidity is high and leaves are wet, Mycelium, the vegetative part of a fungus, begins to grow as small, fuzzy pink clusters where the grass blades meet. After extended periods of time, red thread may develop further, and patches may merge to form large areas of diseased grass. If you think your grass may be victim to red thread, contact Noon Turf Care to have a specialist provide you with a personalized action plan.
