(Ελληνικά) Ιδού το σεμινάριο Ρόδου

αρχείο[/su_button] ΙΔΟΥ Η ΡΟΔΟΣ, ΙΔΟΥ ΚΑΙ ΤΟ ΠΗΔΗΜΑ Η παροιμιώδης αυτή έκφραση, προέρχεται από τον μύθο του Αισώπου, «Ανήρ κομπαστής», και χρησιμοποιείται για όσους καυχιούνται για κάτι και το υποστηρίζουν, αλλά αδυνατούν να αποδείξουν τα λεγόμενά τους. Σύμφωνα με τον μύθο, ένας αθλητής που βρισκόταν στην Αθήνα καυχιόνταν συνέχεια ότι σε αγώνες στην Ρόδο είχε πραγματοποιήσει ένα τεράστιο άλμα. Καθώς δεν τον πίστευε κανείς, αυτός έλεγε στους Αθηναίους να πάνε στη Ρόδο και να ρωτήσουν τους θεατές των αγώνων. Τότε ένας Αθηναίος πήγε στο σκάμμα, και με το χέρι έγραψε πάνω στην άμμο τη λέξη «Ρόδος». Κατόπιν γύρισε προς τον καυχησιάρη αθλητή και του είπε: «Αυτού γαρ και Ρόδος και πήδημα», το οποίο έχει μείνει ως «ιδού η Ρόδος, ιδού και το πήδημα». Το προφανές νόημα είναι ότι ο καθένας έχει οποτεδήποτε την δυνατότητα να αποδείξει τις δυνατότητές του και δεν χρειάζεται η επίκληση μυθικών προγόνων, κατορθωμάτων...
Control Union involved in improving Hygiene in Refugee Camps

Control Union involved in improving Hygiene in Refugee Camps

Recently AgroSpeCom / Control Union Greece applied our HEAT TREATMENT technique in a new and unique, but simultaneously miserable, environment; a temporary residency for refugees in Northern Greece. More then 1,5 million refugees crossed into Europe since the beginning of 2015 due to major crises situations in for example Libya and especially Syria. Although there are huge initiatives undertaken to cope with this influx, and thousands of professionals and volunteers work hard every day to arrange proper living situations for these displaced people, actual situations in temporary residencies or refugee camps are often extremely poor. Unfortunately (much too) many people packed in one place, combined with extremely low hygiene possibilities, is an ideal situation for the development of major pest populations. Consequently, residents often suffer from extreme discomfort from mites, flee and bed bugs. As you may image, traditional pest control methods such as fogging or spraying with (toxic) contact insecticides are not an option in these specific situations, but applying HEAT is. Residents only have to be replaced for up to approximately 10 hours, while their belongings and set up can remain in place and the HEAT does its work and kills all mentioned pests in all stages by reaching over 50C. In this case, the treated locations were small, but the solution is applicable in (much) bigger locations also. CU Greece offered a major discount as per its commercial tariff so that the client, a local NGO, was able to help the people they help so selflessly.     Photo 1: An electrical heater placed inside a room.               Photo 2:...

AgroSpeCom is fighting against the deadliest creatures on Earth!

Cnet.com has recently released the ranking of the 24 deadliest creatures on Earth. The list proves why AgroSpeCom is fighting on daily basis against 9 of them! Go through the list with us to experience the threats and challenges our men confront in remote locations, silos, houses, rivers and lakes around Greece! Here is one of our fighters dressed for the combat. Photo 1: cold fogging against insects On number 19 of the list we find the Fire Ants. They are responsible for killing 30 people per year. Fire ants are dangerous for three reasons: They rush their victims in great numbers, they bite the skin of their victims to get a strong hold and then they inject toxic venom. These ants are mainly found in the United States, Australia, China and Taiwan and not really in Greece. Photo 2: Fire ant (Solenopsis invicta) Number 10: Tapeworms are responsible for killing 2,000 people per year A tapeworm usually makes its way into a human host through food or water contaminated with eggs. People may go years with no symptoms before the infection suddenly becomes serious. Humans are subject to infection by several species of tapeworms if they eat undercooked meat and fish (Taenia solium). Tapeworms are found in Greece with Echinococcus being the most common. Photo 3: Tapeworm head (Taenia solium) On number 9 of the 24-deadliest we find Ascaris Roundworms, responsible for the kill of 2,500 people per year globally. These parasites have tiny eggs easily transferred from contaminated dirt into human mouths. The roundworm takes up residence in the small intestine and can interfere with nutritional uptake,...
