Study: Warmer summers worsen tick infestations for US moose
It’s a ghastly sight: ticks by tens of thousands burrowed into a moose’s broad body, sucking its lifeblood as the agonized host rubs against trees so vigorously that much of its fur wears away. Winter tick infestation is common with moose across the northern U.S. — usually survivable for adults but less so for calves, and miserable either way. Data collected over 19 years at Michigan’s Isle Royale National Park shows moose have more ticks during winters following particularly warm summers, according to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution.news.yahoo.com

Federal Court Permanently Shuts Down Michigan Tax Preparer
A federal court in the Eastern District of Michigan has permanently enjoined a Detroit-area tax return preparer from preparing federal income tax returns for others and from owning or operating any tax return business in the future. According to the court’s order entered Nov. 5, Abdou Ndiaye and Ndiaye’s LLC, dba Pro Tax Services, consented to entry of the injunction, with permits the United States to conduct post-judgment discovery to monitor compliance. The order requires that Ndiaye and Pro Tax Services send notice of the injunction to their prior customers. These improper adjustments caused those individuals to claim earned income tax credits to which they were not entitled.
