Above-average warm temperatures and rainfall led to mosquitoes having a headstart on breeding season

SAND SPRINGS, OKLAHOMA, USA, September 21, 2020 / — Experts at the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) warn that higher-than-normal mosquito activity will persist through fall.

Much of the country experienced a mild winter and wet spring. These conditions provided the perfect environment for an early population spike in mosquitoes. With more people than ever spending time outdoors to escape quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, there has also been a plentiful food source to encourage massive breeding amongst mosquitoes.

Now, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that La Niña is likely for this fall and winter. What that means for Oklahoma is that the state can expect warmer and drier conditions for fall and winter. Mosquitoes thrive in warm environments such as this.

Until temperatures consistently drop below 50 degrees, mosquito activity will remain high. Taking NOAA’s prediction into account, it is likely that the mosquito population will persist until the onset of winter. This gives mosquitoes extra time to breed and lay eggs in preparation for next year.

A mosquito bite can be dangerous as they are a known vector pest. This means that mosquitoes can transmit pathogens to people through their bites.

Mosquitoes cause human illness and death each year. They are known to transmit the West Nile virus, Zika virus, Dengue fever, malaria, and chikungunya, to name a few. As of September 9, 2020, the CDC reports that there have been 81 cases of West Nile virus here in the United States.

To protect you and your family from the threat of these pests, you need mosquito control. Professional pest exterminators can keep the pest population near your home in check. The sooner you begin addressing a mosquito problem around your home, the better.

The cold weather of winter does not kill mosquitoes. Instead, they lay eggs and then go into hibernation. As soon as the weather begins to warm once more, these same mosquitos will emerge, as well as their offspring. For Oklahoma, you can be looking at mosquitoes appearing as early as February.

Since this year has seen a surge in the mosquito population, next year can be expected to be as bad or worse. With unseasonably warm temperatures predicted for fall and winter, pests will have a broader window to breed and lay eggs.

This is why addressing the problem early is a good idea. Getting rid of the current mosquitoes and removing their breeding ground will lead to fewer mosquitoes the following year. Without taking these necessary steps, you might be faced with double the number of mosquitos around your home the next year.

Consult a professional to determine the best mosquito control strategy for you. A pest control expert will be able to spray around the home to eliminate any laid eggs and deter existing adult mosquitos from entering the area. This is the best way to keep you and your family safe from contracting any harmful diseases.

500 Gallery introduces an industry first: lot views in the round via YouTube for its September 30th tribal arts auction

Bruce Wood said as far as he knows, his 500 Gallery is the first auction house to offer rotating videos for all the lots in a single sale. – 60 in all. The tribal art auction is slated for Sept. 30.

Lot 1: Senufo Kulonugo fire spitter, a massive wood carving covered with black paint and adorned by additions of red paint. Atop the head is a carved offering bowl (est. $2,500-$5,000).

Hornbill with brass and cloth from the Senufo People of the Ivory Coast, Hand-carved from a solid piece of wood and decorated with red fabric, 43 ½ inches tall (est. $5,000-$10,000).

War mask from the We/Guere people of the Ivory Coast, made from wild animal horns and cloth over carved wood, with a heavy patina from libations (est. $1,500-$3,000).

Marital group (Nomos) from the Dogon People of Mali, circa late 19th century, a seated group of eight hermaphroditic figures, with alternating male and female attributes (est. $30,000-$60,000).

Each page of the catalog has an embedded video that can be clicked and viewed on the 500 Gallery website: All 60 lots have their own video.

It occurred to me that simple videos would give people a great experience of the three-dimensionality of sculptures, and help them make sense of all the detailed photos – front, back, sides, etcetera.”

— Bruce Wood

FRANKLIN, MA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2020 / — Bruce Wood was surfing the Internet one day and found himself watching a video of sparkling earrings twirling around in a jewelry advertisement. Then it hit him: “In our gallery, we have a rotating pedestal for showcasing sculptures that are best seen in the round,” he said, “but the inspiration for adding videos to our online catalogs came from that jewelry video.”

Wood is the owner of 500 Gallery in Franklin, an auction house that specializes in fine art originals and attributions. It is about to make its initial foray into African tribal art with the first in a series of auctions planned for Wednesday, September 30th. The sale is online-only so, of course, showing each item in its best possible light involved taking crisp, multiple photos per lot.

But watching that jewelry video sparked a thought. “It occurred to me that simple videos would give people a great experience of the three-dimensionality of sculptures, and help them make sense of all the detailed photos – front, back, sides, etcetera – in the catalog listings,” Wood said. I made a few videos of some of my favorite tribal art pieces and popped them onto YouTube.”

Wood made a page of videos for the website (, but said, “Aside from listing the YouTube URL and asking viewers to copy and paste it into their Internet browser, there was no way to incorporate these lovely videos into each catalog listing. Luckily, we approached our software developer and he made it all possible. Now each page of the catalog has an embedded video that can be easily clicked and viewed. All 60 lots have their own video.”

Wood said as far as he knows, his is the first auction house to offer rotating videos for all the lots in a single sale. “Especially in the tribal sculpture market, being able to show an object in glorious 3-D is unheard-of,” he commented, adding, “I can't wait for holographs to be available.”

Seeing the light play across the large metal-clad wings of the Senufo hornbill sculpture (Lot 2), while their span rotated to fill the screen was “a magical experience,” Wood said. The hornbill, made in the mid-20th century by the Senufo People of Africa’s Ivory Coast, is hand-carved from a solid piece of wood and decorated with red fabric under a chased and embossed brass metal overlay. Impressive at 43 ½ inches tall, it has an estimate of $5,000-$10,000.

The Dogon marital group (Lot 5) also revealed an interesting play of light when viewed on a rotating pedestal. “The rows of arms and legs which appeared solid from some angles, turned to show the background illumination filtering through the comb-like spaces between them,” Wood observed. The marital group (Nomos), from the Dogon People of Mali, depicts a seated group of eight hermaphroditic figures, with alternating male and female attributes (est. $30,000-$60,000).

Videos of the masks presented a different experience. “The Senufo Kulonugo fire spitter (Lot 1) showed off its dynamic appearance by alternately appearing narrow and unassuming, then filling the screen with enormous horns and bared teeth,” Wood said. The massive wood carving is covered with black paint and adorned by additions of red paint. Atop the head is a small carved offering bowl held in the extended arms of a chameleon (est. $2,500-$5,000).

The war mask from the We/Guere people of the Ivory Coast (Lot 19) gave the impression of being both weightless and heavy on the video. “Its cluster of pointed, curling animal horns are seemingly writhing outward from the rough-hewn mask’s thick carved wood block,” Wood remarked. The mask, fashioned from wild animal horns and cloth over carved wood, with a heavy patina from libations, is 15 inches tall and carries an estimate of $1,500-$3,000.

All 60 lots can also be viewed in the 500 Gallery showroom, at 1243 Pond Street in Franklin, Mass., by appointment, Tuesdays thru Saturdays. To make an appointment call 508-834-8190.

The best and worst NBA franchises to follow

Betting Apps has conducted a study which takes into account a range of data before ranking all NBA franchises based on their respective rankings.

It's intriguing to uncover that the biggest franchises might be the worst to follow. We were excited to see that Miami and Dallas were in the top two with two exciting young stars – Herro and Dončić”

— Betting Apps

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 21, 2020 / — The best and worst NBA franchises to follow have been revealed

The Miami Heat top the best NBA franchises to follow, based on a variety of performance and franchise factors, with the Denver Nuggets ranking as the worst franchise.

Sport Experts, Betting Apps, has conducted a study which takes into account a range of data including offensive ability, historical MVPs, stadium capacity, defensive prowess and beer prices before ranking all NBA franchises based on their respective rankings.

In the study, the Miami Heat ranked in the top five for popularity, selling the cheapest beers and having won the NBA championships the most. The Heat also rank in the top 10 for some of the best shooting in the 2019-20 season so far.

At the opposite end of the best NBA franchises scale are the Denver Nuggets who are well below the league average in a variety of topics such as most championship victories, historic MVP wins and they also sell the second most expensive beer in the NBA – never a great combination!

Despite their loaded roster, the Brooklyn Nets rank second bottom with a subpar history of no championship wins and no historical MVPs.

Top 10 Best Franchises to Follow:
Miami Heat
Dallas Mavericks
Chicago Bulls
Milwaukee Bucks
Houston Rockets
Los Angeles Lakers
Washington Wizards
Boston Celtics
Philadelphia 76ers
Cleveland Cavaliers

Top 10 Worst Franchises to Follow:
Denver Nuggets
Brooklyn Nets
Memphis Grizzlies
Indiana Pacers
Charlotte Hornets
Orlando Magic
New York Knicks
Golden State Warriors
LA Clippers
New Orleans Pelicans

The most entertaining franchises in the NBA are the Milwaukee Bucks and the Houston Rockets with the highest points per game averages in the NBA – it is safe to thank their respective stars Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden for these feats.

And for those casual fans who are looking to experience the buzz of a live NBA game the two cheapest tickets can be found for games hosted by the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Charlotte Hornets. The TWolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns is definitely worth a look at for just $58 and for $64 it is definitely worth heading to a Charlotte game to see if you can catch a glimpse of GOAT owner Michael Jordan.

The first major expansion of Shaolia launching on Kickstarter 23 September

Boardgame company, Bad Comet announces its launch on Kickstarter, offering exciting expansions for backers.

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, September 21, 2020 / — Shaolia, the fast-paced head to head and strategic game of fantasy kingdom building has recently made it public that they will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on 23 September 2020. Followers and backers will be able to receive exciting expansion offers, as the company is looking to grow their market, while also presenting exciting new additions to the game.

The card game, which is constructed around fantasy kingdom building and dice-based tactics is looking to release an even more strategic and in-depth game. The announcement of their Kickstarter campaign has many in the industry talking, as the company will be offering a promo card pack worth $7.00 for free to all backers. The Kickstarter campaign is a smart move, as this will be a way for Bad Comet and Shaolia to build its influence in the gaming industry, forming a strong connection with early backers and creating lasting players. A spokesperson for Shaolia shared that, “The Kickstarter campaign is a way for us to show players how eager we are to expand and grow our game. With this said, it’s also a modern approach to reach more people and build a whole new era of players.”

Last year, Bad Comet successfully launched its first game, Shaolia: Warring States, raising $86,694 on Kickstarter. Similar card games are currently available on the market, but the Shaolia game pack has both a tactical approach, while still offering fun gameplay for both novice and veteran players of the game. The game is filled with different characters, buildings, and an array of different modes. Previous players have shared how interconnected the mechanics and theme of the game is, saying how it takes you on a journey of exciting experiences, while still using your critical and strategic thinking to win opponents.

“What makes this game such a success is that even though many hardcore gamers dig the strategic dept of the game, it is simple enough for your non-gaming friends, beginners, and pros to enjoy. Some may find it quite easy in the beginning, but as soon as you get into it, the real fun begins,” shared the spokesperson.

This will be the first major expansion for Shaolia, as they are constantly looking for new and improved ways to keep the game fun and entertaining. The company has in the past shared that they are looking to build and create a more robust gaming experience, adding replay value even after completion of the game. A host of new characters and buildings can be added to the game, growing it from a straightforward card game, and raising the intensity of each level as one progresses.

Other fantasy card games such as Keyforge, Faerie, Arkham Horror, or Android: Netrunner are some of the most popular fantasy card games on the market. These card games can cost players anything from $39.99 to almost $149.99 per set, with extra decks, dice, and pieces that can be purchased at additional cost. The Shaolia team has not yet announced what players will be paying for their game, but with the company looking to launch their Kickstarter campaign in the coming week, many are hopeful that it would be offered at a much more affordable price.

The spokesperson went on to claim “Shaolia isn’t your regular fantasy card game, yes, there are many other similar games on the market, but we want to bring a new and stimulating offering to the market. For years, people have been stuck with over-hyped and expensive card games, that all turn out the same in the end. We’ve looked at all the details and put in extra effort to ensure players will always be engaged, no matter how many times you play it.”

As time starts ticking for Shaolia to launch its Kickstarter campaign, a host of excited players are hopeful that it will be something that can fuse and change the fantasy card game industry.

Only known 1916 World Series Championship Boston Red Sox/Babe Ruth button to be auctioned by Hake’s, Sept. 23

Another auction highlight: 1915 ‘Ty Cobb Right Field’ button with advertising on verso for Schmelzer’s Sporting Goods (of Kansas City, Mo.), which sponsored a 10-button set that year. Estimate: $10,000-$20,000

Greatest prize in legendary Paul Muchinsky collection, oversize button features photo images of Red Sox mgr. + 24 players, including then-21-year-old Babe Ruth

Dr. Paul Muchinsky considered the 1916 World Series button to be the centerpiece and most valuable item in his collection. There is simply no other baseball button to which this one can be compared.”

— Alex Winter, President of Hake's Auctions

YORK, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2020 / — The legend of Babe Ruth, the historical importance of the Paul Muchinsky (1947-2015) pinback button collection, and the mystery of why a Detroit brewery would promote the 1916 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox form an intriguing backstory that continues to unfold at Hake’s Auctions.

The puzzle surrounds the prized headliner of Hake’s 2,048-lot collectibles and pop culture sale that closes for bidding on September 23-24: a 6-inch celluloid button deemed so important, experts believe it could set a new world auction record for a baseball pinback. It has the distinction of being the only 1916 World Series Championship button known to exist.

The oversize button individually depicts and identifies the manager and 24 teammates from the 1916 Boston Red Sox team, including three future Hall of Famers: Herb Pennock, Harry Hooper and then-21-year-old pitching and batting phenom Babe Ruth. The button’s crisp, visually dense display is also adorned with art images of bats, balls, bases, gloves and other baseball equipment, as well as banners that say “World’s Champions 1916” and “Boston Red Sox American League.”

The 1916 Series was especially significant for Babe Ruth, as it marked the brilliant southpaw’s first post-season on the mound. He revealed his incredible prowess by pitching a complete extra-innings (14 innings) game against the Brooklyn Robins, delivering a 2-1 second-game victory for the Sox.

The central advertising message appearing on the pinback in Hake’s auction raises intriguing questions about the button’s origin and intended use. Within a black-outlined circle in capital letters, it says “DRINK ALPEN BRAU – DETROIT’S CHAMPION BEER.” But why would a Detroit brewery support a rival team from Boston? Or put the other way, why, hypothetically, would a Boston team approach a Detroit brewery for an endorsement deal? Pundits can’t help but speculate that America’s tensions over World War I – which the United States joined almost exactly six months after the 1916 World Series was played – might have had something to do with it. It’s possible that economic opportunities were diminished at the time and the Sox were open to an additional revenue source from out of state. Or it could have been something as simple as the brewery owner being a Red Sox fan or possibly a Boston native.

Hake’s president, Alex Winter, thinks the button’s size suggests it may have been a sample made to illustrate a presentation to the brewery. “It’s the largest baseball button that had ever been made up to its time. It’s possible it was produced in a larger size to maximize the detail, which is important because there are images of the players and manager.”

Red Sox Championship buttons made before and after their 1916 win are rare, indeed. Only a few buttons were made following their 1912 World Championship. In 1915 came the Red Sox World Series buttons with beautiful accompanying ribbons that referred to the “Royal Rooters.” It was also following the 1915 World Series that they were referred to incorrectly on one button design as the Boston Red “Sox’s.” No button was issued following the team’s 1918 World Series win. As for 1916, the one and only Championship button known to exist is the example entered in Hake’s auction.

Most serious collectors of baseball buttons would know of the legendary 1916 button because it is pictured on the back cover of the late Dr. Paul Muchinsky’s 2004 mega-reference book 'Baseball Pinback Buttons.' Muchinsky retained personal ownership of the button, even when failing health led him to sell roughly 85% of his collection at auction. The button was considered such a valuable asset, it was actually placed in a trust and not to be sold until 2037. Recently Muchinsky’s family updated that decision, and the button is now being offered by Hake’s with an opening bid of $10,000. (n.b. As of the time of this press announcement’s dispatch, the leading bid is already at $25,000.)

“Dr. Muchinsky considered the 1916 Red Sox button to be the centerpiece and most valuable item in his collection. It was his pride and joy,” Winter said. “Untypically, we have left the estimate open, as there is simply no other button to which this one can be compared."

Winter cited market-price trends for other types of early Babe Ruth mementos. “Even low- to mid-grade examples of Ruth’s M101-5/4 ‘Sporting News’ rookie cards – likely more than 100 exist in various grades – routinely fetch six-figure prices at public auction, with high-grade examples approaching seven figures. Ruth’s first-ever baseball card, produced in 1914 as part of a ‘Baltimore News’ minor league issue, would surely command a seven-figure auction price. There are roughly 10 to 12 of those in existence. In addition, the few known Boston Red Sox team postcards from this same era have brought prices approaching $100,000 in recent years. For those reasons, we can only speculate what collectors might be willing to pay for the only known 1916 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox team button with images of Babe Ruth and his teammates. It is not an overstatement to say that this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a baseball treasure of immeasurable importance.”
