KATY/WEST HOUSTON RESIDENTS TO

JOIN 2020 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S®​

Participants will Raise Critically Needed Awareness and Funds for

Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research. ​The Alzheimer’s Association®​

is inviting​Katy, Fulshear, Cypress, Richmond and other West Houston

area ​residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in

the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.​​The Walk will take

place on Saturday, September 26, 2020,​​The Katy/West Houston Walk

to End Alzheimer’s continues, but instead of hosting a large gathering,

the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as

individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across Katy,

West Houston, Fulshear, Richmond and surrounding areas.

Time-honored components of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s are being

replicated. On walk day, an Opening Ceremony will feature local speakers

and a presentation of Promise Flowers to honor the personal reasons

participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia, all

delivered to participants’ smartphones, tablets and computers. A small

group of Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will create the iconic

Promise Garden in a “view only” format on Walk day on commercial Blvd

along the original walk route to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s.

encourage your friends, family members, neighbors, book club, gym and

8 TIPS FOR STUDYING AT HOME EFFECTIVELY

1. TRY ACTIVE STUDYING: Active studying is

as simple as asking questions before, during

and after study time. Not only does this help

to give your study session direction, but it also

helps keep you on track and reflect on how to

improve for your next study session!

Questions to ask yourself before you study:

What am I about to learn?

What do I already know about this subject?

Questions to ask yourself while you study:

How does this information fit into a bigger

picture?

Do I understand what I have just read?

Can I paraphrase it?

Are there any key words or ideas that I need to

write down? Why are these words and ideas

important?

Questions to ask yourself after you study:

What can I take away from this study session?

What do I need to review or learn next time?

HOW TO STUDY AT HOME

(WITHOUT GETTING DISTRACTED)

Studying at home has its perks: it’s a comfortable, low-pressure environment. However, there

are a few reasons it can be difficult to study at home; with so many distractions, it’s easy to

procrastinate-when you do start, it’s easy to get off track.

At home, procrastination and distraction can prevent you from accomplishing what you

need to get done. Watching TV, taking a nap, scrolling through social media or other activities

(maybe even cleaning your room!), are big productivity killers that take you away from your

goal of studying for or completing that assignment.

Fortunately, there are a few tricks you can use to help you be more productive. Here are 8

ways to help you stay focused and get more done when studying at home.

2. GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP: Students of all

ages should get at least eight hours of sleep

every school night. It’s the best way to ensure

that the brain is refreshed and ready to process

all of the information learned during the day. It

may be tempting to stay up late to cram, but it’s

more beneficial to get enough rest. A full night’s

sleep is especially important the night before a

test-a good night’s sleep makes you more alert

and improves memory for test material, leading

to better test results.

3. STUDY AT THE RIGHT TIME: Every student

has his or her own daily highs and lows. Some

people are night owls while some people

prefer the morning. Take advantage of the time of the day you feel most

productive and don’t try to force yourself to study when your brainpower

isn’t at its peak. Try to study when you are most alert, so you are able to

process and retain the information that you are studying.

4. HAVE A DESIGNATED STUDY AREA: Whether it’s the kitchen table or

the desk in your bedroom, create an area to study that is a designated

study zone. Try to reserve your bed for sleeping and avoid studying in it

(it can be all too easy to take a nap!). Most importantly, keep your study

space clean and organized so you can put more time into studying (and

less trying to find a pen that works).

5. EAT PROPERLY: Don’t forget to eat! Your body (and your brain) needs

fuel to help stay in top form. Plus, it’s difficult to focus when your stomach

is growling. Have healthy snacks while you study, but make sure they’re

prepared in advance so you don’t spend too much time away from your

work. More time away means more opportunity to be distracted!

6. CREATE A TIMETABLE: Creating a timetable helps organize your time,

schedules your breaks and is especially useful when you have multiple

subjects to study. Write your schedule down so you can remember it

and refer to it often. Set reasonable limits for how much time you spend

studying each day and break your study session up into manageable

chunks of time.

7. USE A TIMER: Use a timer to help keep track of time and to make sure

you stick to the timetable you created. Setting a timer helps keeps you

focused on the task at hand, committed to working until the timer goes

off and helps keep you on track to cover all the material you need to.

Above all else, it helps keep your break time effective and guilt-free

(because you’ve earned it!).

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR STUDY TIME

Although it seems convenient, studying at home can be difficultprocrastination

and distraction can happen easily. But with a little bit of

planning and organization, it can be an effective (and comfortable) place

to study. Try some of these tips for studying at home to help you stay

focused and more efficient with your study time.

NATIONAL GRANDPARENTS DAY -

SUNDAY AFTER LABOR DAY

Each year on the Sunday following Labor Day, grandchildren across

the country honor their grandparents. There is a special bond that

can only be shared between grandchildren and their grandparents.

Grandparents are full of hugs and kisses, family history, wisdom, patience,

love and guidance. National Grandparents Day gives grandchildren the

opportunity to show love and appreciation to their grandparents.

National Grandparents Day has its very own song. The National

Grandparents Day Council of Chula Vista, California announced in 2004

that A Song for Grandma and Grandpa by Johnny Prill would be the official

song of the United States National Grandparents Day holiday. The Council

presented Prill with the National Songwriter’s Award in recognition of his

highly popular composition A Song for Grandma and Grandpa.

The forget-me-not is the official flower for National Grandparents Day.

National Grandparents Day is expected to grow in significance over the

next decade and beyond as the number of grandparents in the United

States rises from 65 million in 2011 to 80 million in 2020 as a result of the

baby boom. Show your appreciation for everything your grandparents

have done for you.

LANDSCAPING AND SPRINKLER

REPAIRS • DRAINAGE SOLUTIONS

Garden Tips For September

TIME NOW TO MAKE PLANS FOR

FALL LANDSCAPING PROJECTS.

• Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves and dead

wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of iron (chlorosis). Correct

with iron cheleates.

• Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little bone meal around

the roots.

• Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall growth. Follow up with

a dose of fertilizer the first week of September.

• Plants come out of summer rest and go crazy. Insect populations

explode as we get into cooler temperatures. Diseases that have been

dormant wake up.

- Citrus, croton, avocado and mango are susceptible to spider mites and

thrips. Discourage them with a strong jet of water from a hose directed to

the undersides of the leaves.

- Hibiscus, citrus, palms, gardenia and ixora are susceptible to scale and

mealybug.

• Winter vegetable gardens and perennials get planted.

• Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies.

• Fire ants baits should be put out in September-October to lessen the

number of eggs that make it to Spring.

• St. Augustine grass gets its fall fertilizer during September. Continue

to mow at maximum height. You want to leave a lot of leaf surface to

produce carbohydrate reserves for the winter.

• Keep an eye out for sod webworms. First sign of them is grass that

appears to stop growing. You need to get them early for biological

controls to work. When the caterpillars are only 1/4 inch, Bacillus

thuringiensis applications can slow them. Bt is a bacteria that works on

the caterpillars’ digestive systems and makes them stop feeding. Do the

application late in the day. The larvae feed at night and you want them

to get nice fresh Bt.

• When the heat and drought end, the weather could bring brown patch

disease in the St. Augustine grass. Watch for yellowish spots if the nights

drop into the 60’s and days stay in the 80’s.

• Get any pruning of hedges and such done now. You want the flush of

new growth to be hardened-off before the end of October. Tree pruning

should be put off until winter, when the trees are dormant.

• Pre-emerge herbicide applications targeting annual bluegrass and

the earlier-germinating winter broadleaf weeds needed to be put out

starting in mid-August.
