swampy soil smell

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I have a house with a sunken shower that has been leaking under the concrete slab for many years. I have broken out and removed the concrete slab around this area and removed about 4' of dirt. I have let it dry out and I cannot get rid of the smell inside the house. Is there a possibility that the smell has penetrated the walls and insulation also? I cannot sell or rent this house out until I correct the problem. I took soil samples and mold was found in the soil... Please any guidance would be appreciated.

Requesting guidance regarding swimming lessons for children under 4 years of age

Hello,

I'm aware that the American Academy of Pediatrics recently changed its guidelines to allow parents/other caretakers to allow children under 4 years of age to swim, based on 2 studies, as long as the parent is within touch supervision.

The AAP's policy statement is from a part of the AAP radio series "A Minute for Kids on "Swimming Programs for Infants and Toddlers" states: "Children are not ready for formal swimming lessons until after their fourth birthday. That's because they cannot voluntarily hold their breath for significant amounts of time until that age".

However, it is not clear to me if the AAP is now refuting the above stated fact, because it is NOT addressed in their REVISED GUIDELINES.

How do I provide interpretation of the new policy to parents? I'm a home visitor and this is confusing.

rabbitbrush look alike?

Good Afternoon,

I am in the process of attempting to ID what looks like rabbit-brush but has larger ovate leaves not the oblong leaves that are one of the defining characteristics of the Chrysothamnus viscidiflorus. Do you have any suggestions as to what this look alike is?

Thank you,

Benina Cerno
