Energy Carrier Molecules

Is AMP and FAD energy carrier molecules? I know that ATP and FAD2h are but I am not sure if the energy is used up when they turn into the form of AMP and FAD and can no longer carry out unfavored reactions.

Poison ivy or another toxic plant

Hi,
I have recently purchased this home and was looking forward to having a garden. While gardening I pulled out some weeds and trimmed some plants and creepers from my fence. Seems like I developed skin rash on exposed areas. I was covered well but the area between the gloves and sleeves, and the area around my neck where I wiped sweat broke out.
I have not had any previous exposure to these kind of plants so it will be great if you could help me identify what these creepers/plants are, which ones do I need to address, and, if possible, how.

Thanks,
Raj

Biosolids

Hello,

I typically do not allow biosolids on my projects. I have had some unexplained failures with annuals, and have seen that it does not act in the same way as other composted materials. It seems to be less digestible, for the use of microorganisms, and so seems to build up in the soil if used as a top-dressing on lawns and become a drying layer. I have heard also that it can cause a nutrient imbalance. The soils I'm working with are a little high in calcium and magnesium and the pH is a little high. This product does not seem to be correct prescriptively for these soils, but I am constantly being pushed to allow the product. I can find no scholarly research that would bolster my concerns. Am I over-reacting?
