All of that energetic pain and trauma to mother earth and she is takes fans mutes it That really was those three experiences. The church the ten day meditation the sweat lodge. It all became my spiritual awakening of really knowing that god was not 'cause i i grew up christian. God is not just as outside being but god is within us. There's like this. Universal consciousness of god and the energy and the breath of life the spirit of life. His spirit right. All of it is within. It's not just outside. And that made me feel completely connected to everyone to every human being and that changed my life. Because i look at every human as my brother and sister and i don't en- i know we are one and people say oh we are one but when you experience it that that love the love for one another that you have. It's just It just pushes you beyond it makes you. And that's why. Do the work that i do in in serving people in helping people's because i want to. I know i know how it is to be tracked by your story and by the pain i want people to just break through an experience that love in this life in truly choose to live right not be so afraid of just death but to truly choose to live each day and take make the most of this moment. Because i know a lot of people aren't here with us and And what a way to honor them. Right wow wow you know. Just i'm i'm listening to you. Tell your story.

It's like that it's like that and that's an end that's or a creek but it's like one one motion in that's how it feels like. Wow and so a rivers of yeah within us just transformed my my consciousness my understanding of what it means to be alive and all of us for all of us to be alive. And i think we're so in this routine and stuck in the mundane and we forget the sacredness in the power of what's within us in. What makes us who we are. It's it just completely changed me. And you mentioned sweat lodge. What exactly is that. I'm not familiar with that term. Sure so it's as you know as a latina. I'm native african in european and a lot of our native culture has been hidden from us And so i've been on this search to reclaim my indigenous roots. And my dear friend caroline.

With all of that annabelle has recently created. An app called the vocal coach which seeks to help anyone who wants to sing. Thank you for joining us today. Annabel thank you very much for that lovely introduction. That was really. It wasn't exactly difficult because you've done so much actually so tell us a bit about yourself. How did you become a vocal coach. More quite by accident to be honest with you. Because i mean i was aways pursuing. Montgomery was a singer. And i think a lot of singers instrumentalists tend to teach the side. Make extra cash but what happened. Was i'd been studying music since i was about lesson. And then when. I went to london to study music. When it came to the theory side of things i was just a bit more movie experience. The other students in my class and so i found myself up helping them and a lot of them were brand new to save theory and start reading Meeting music thing and we just kind of help them alone. A couple of my friends who are really good at this. It makes sense when you say you know what i understand. Some of the teacher sometimes. And i'm one of the ghosts of listen. What can i tell you to help me with my favorite. Because it's just you know it makes sense. Would you say sure you know eighteen coast wanna make money and all that sort of thing so she paid me five for an hour to teach you and the To spread from really. I really really enjoyed got out of coaching. But i never really sort of set. Coach said that happened by accident. But my real training was in the national youth jazz castro which was an amazing training. Grab field musicians. I was fortunate enough to go there. Major fifteen and she was the singer for the national used as strode jones's cold from the age of seventeen today. Just twenty three and that was really better than any training could have dreamed of because it was so so hard and you told me throwing the deep end and that is where i myself started sort of saturday morning workshop. I mean. I was in a situation where i was foot enough to to sing with a big band. Every single saturday morning in rehearsals. You know twenty three big bands trump Caution that was just lows of britain instruments. And that was just me singing along with my own every similar This is such a brilliant opportunity because anyone could come but people didn't know about it so i decided to separate if a workshop for sing himself saturday morning to come alone and i would teach them the songs and then they would get a chance to sing. The dick van den done so. That's why i stopped doing when i was about eighteen. And then about a year later incorporating quick quickly really and that's been winehouse turned that when she was sixteen i was nineteen and so from their own woods really. That's where the kind of you want of a better term. The celebrity vocal coach they really started to smuggle from there and one person and people talk and all his coach. And so on. And and it really snowballed from there. Really tough out my control. I was still plugging alone trying to be a successful sing and the coaching just wouldn't leave me alone. It was just so rude okay. This is what's happening as incredible though. That's a good way to into something rather by accident. Actually working hard to try now. I'm a singer. I'm going to be the cakes and it just happened and it was such a fortunate accident. Loved it so much. Look here. I am now. That's what i do so love it to annable. You mentioned oversee one of the most wonderful famous singers of all time. Amy winehouse when you are approached to do your vehicle. Coaching do you. Get goose pimples. When you find a singer that you know is going to be amazing. Do you see it straight away. Yeah it's a definite on our member. That fading with amy because you know of course she was sixteen at the time and not known at all. Nobody knew what was what was round the corner for her and she would just come home. She was just another girl at the time he just came alone but she would kind of sit there not really give too much away in that. I didn't really know how much this thing to me. But then she would go out and sing with. The big son told her own. And that's when you so nicely. Instrumentalists play their insurance for all kind of looking Same time look. The i just kind of left to right like wow this. Oh and such. It's such a brilliant brilliant. I and i think we all in the revenue. Something special is happening. Which is just when it gives me goosebumps thinking about again. It's just such an amazing moment and for sure. I'm very very lucky. When i worked with autism client equal to start now. People already established when you first hit them. You know about tone you know. I love different times of people's voices and that's what makes them unique and it's my job to kind of not teach everyone the same way so every single lesson with anybody is always different because efforts to everybody the same way they do the same so i really like to work with them on their own unique sound and help them with their own sound on the same token about do you find their all clients that you feel at the beginning. There's not a lot of hope. But yeah and you're really surprised you work at and they become rather good. Yeah and i would say to the naturally gifted wants because you when you get somebody who's naturally just a brilliant brilliant singer or who can just do the riffs no. The rumson has the agility compared to somebody that wants to do that and hasn't got that natural ability. I will say to the naturally good ones that. Just be careful because don't just sit back and rely on your own natural talent because what happens is the ones who don't live you natural talent with the butts of and then they overtake end up taking. It's really interesting for me to kind of stay. I think of a guy that i used to teach about fifteen years ago back in michael which is now a big in fulham and he was one of these less. Not naturally just not. It wasn't that but nobody wanted it more than him and he did a deployment than a three year degree in the master's and by the end. Well he should have worn out was done. I mean he really really Believe the difference. And i love stuff like that because it's yet do you know what if you put your mind to it. You can really make massive massive changes and it's important for the ones who have the natural talent. You could possibly latest either as a result.

So i think i'm better now just being in the moment kind of letting life unfolds and the need todd like informal seated meditation or formal yoga practice to find that sense of connection. Even things like just confessing. Your is feeling your breath for minute would see will really kind of drinking in your surroundings so you can just start to really be compressing because otherwise the so much danger that we all spend so much time like imagined features. You may well never happen. experience has taught me or even got that the next thing you already falsehood into the next hour how that chilling g holiday with they are also that real tendency to miss out on the moments if you are constantly kind of falsehood as he say it's like the next thing the next thing next thing and i think it was not hung up. Goodest teacher said light. Life is only available in the present moments on israeli cheering. Of course none of us are going to state our time but just to compete bringing yourself back again and again and again In recent in day united life warsame favorite ways to practice gratitude. On how the hell she. I think that most fundamental to gratitude is destroyed. Really the paying attention suggest really opening our eyes to what's unfolding in front of us because again we can be so caught top in our heads features. Pause that we forget to light the sky and see kind of a peaceful sky. Ooh dc of like a kind of giving us a smile. And i have quite often. I'm not j at the moment. Just tighten evenings but like a gratitude journal by. I will write down a number. I think we used today like three really specific things from that day. I was grateful it could just be like being alive. Will something part. Generic kit with being initiatives cup. Tea guy joins us loaning. Oh a peaceful in the park today. So i think that's really helpful because it just kind of bills and bills and bills this sense of. Wow there are so many things. I can actually be grateful for even on what might be seen as fatty ordinary Always the best. I really love cheese. I feel like three low down in three of guests. I just really lost my direction. Dot side of things like Calf me go back into Are just like a different human. Just spending like shoot amount of time gabby said rising down to me. I have to really like close.

Q&A: What are your plans for school in the fall?
"Your plans for school in the fall A hot button question for reasons. I don't really understand I. Wish people could just choose if they have a choice like what they're doing and then be happy with their choice and let other people be happy with their, as that sounds like quite an idea. I can see why there's third for for different. Because nobody knows what to do, so it's just helpful to hear what others thought process these are, and there is the tendency in our culture at as it stands social media to kind of look up to certain people, and so you Kinda WanNa know what did they do so I get it. I know what you mean like I guess what you're trying to say is it's really a very individualized choice so in a way like you can't look at anybody else's decision or thought process, and use that to make decisions for yourself, because all the variables are probably going to be different but people still WANNA know. Sarah, what are you doing? Yes, so as of now and again, who knows things could change, but I did make the decision to enroll my rising first grader in a private school, which is the same school that my toddler attended? It's like a Montessori that goes all the way through middle school. I really liked the school, and to be completely transparent My husband and I were considering having him make this transition anyway, just because of his learning styles and fit with. The traditional public school setting didn't go completely. Bump free. Last year, so we got three months of distance learning. Yeah, correct, so this was not a fresh new idea. We had thought about it anyway, but then having gone through those months of distance learning. And observed that certain things were just not. You know it seemed I. Don't WanNa. Say like emotional damage, but it was taking a toll on all of us and I don't think. There is. Much learning happening and I also don't want. I don't know I. Don't WanNa have him look back and think of his beginnings of school being traumatic, and therefore have like a forever hatred of learning develop, plus it was just sort of torture personally, so for many and I think our nanny was also struggling completely understandably because you know, she's a fantastic nanny, but she's not really a teacher, and neither am I am able to care for two older kids with complicated teaching schedules while watching a toddler so Wanted if possible something different than what we were doing. And so The school has very small classrooms in his able to separate the kids into pods, and they're planning on an in person. Start to the school year so I Call them they initially did not have a spot and then one opened, so I took it so he and genevieve will be going. And annabel will be continuing virtual school at home through our public school system because for her. Pretty well and so I don't see any reason to. Change things on that note.
Poland election result: Narrow victory for conservative incumbent Andrzej Duda
"President Andrew has won the country's election after a closely fought contest. Let's get the latest now. With bortles Warsaw correspondent Annabel Chapman get off. Annabelle it's. It's a very very very tight. Vote me does that? Is that in itself? Instructive? Does that tell us anything extra? It really shows that the country is very divided. The two candidates. Who Represent different different outlooks? I wanted. Then you know what what Marcus can we can we going then about? The direction the country's headed, and we know, of course as so often misses a narrative we see and a lot of countries that have populace in in charge. It's about relationship with external stay. organizations like the European. Union etc, D-. Can we now start to see the next steps that Poland may take even if it's slightly tentative well. Reelection Andrzej do the conservative president means that the country will continue going in the same direction as it has been going, which means a strengthening of the ruling party's grip on the stage in its democratic institutions under. The this is one of the key narratives I guess. If we look across the Western media the papers here in this country, lots of people we've spoken to. Is this deep concern about you know pressure being brought to bear on the? Judiciary areas like civil rights gay rights. and people said you know although they knew that do is likely to be return. They held out some hope that we could see some progress there, but it definitely doesn't feel that, does it? and. Hope that. Trust skied, Wilson was liberal woodwind, and even less my as the exit polls where being announced, there was still a lot of hope among liberal voters I was at the election evening. Mr Scope Skin W- also, and there were a lot of young people that who already holding out until the last minutes won't just to that point. Is there any prospect you think of any? Any contest contesting of the results as you said already very slim, and when the votes that marginally sometimes you can see these things to the the courts. Any is anyone you hearing that from anybody? I mean there will definitely be complaints filed to the cords. It's a question of how serious complaints are and how seriously they are taken by the courts because the cold saw. To some extent controlled by the ruling party now exactly. Could speak to you. Thanks for your time as always. That was Monica's Warsaw correspondent. Annabel Chapman with the latest
What's Your Miracle?
"Today's episode is a Doozy Greg and I cried to quite a bit, and some of that had to be edited out for time. We chatted for for a while, but this is one of my favorite episodes because we talk about neural. A miracle is defined as a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural scientific laws and is therefore considered to be a work of divine agency. A highly improbable or extraordinary event, development or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences. Greg story is full of miracles, but that's not unique. You know I think. The miracles of recovery are widely talked about in our community. Don't stop before the miracle happens is a typical a ISM. Hey, that's because it's true. There are miracles in your sober future. To happen when you least expect them, and they're rarely, if ever explainable. Greg spent the last of his drinking and drug use career as across country drug dealer. In his twenty five years of Sobriety Yeah Twenty five years. He's accomplished some crazy successful feats, but most recently he has founded an runs startup recovery in southern California. He's attack speaker and he has a beautiful healthy family. That's a freaking miracle. Friends being able to turn your life from that into this is miraculous, and it's possible for you to even if a miracle just means making it one day without drinking. So go grab some Kleenex Hunker Down Let's talk to Greg Champion. Hi Greg. How are you I'm doing well. Trish good afternoon. Happy Happy Hour to you! Happy Happy Hour! Thanks so much for Burson, down with me for a little recovery. Happy Tonight and for sharing your story I'm thrilled to get to know in. Learn about the past twenty five years real quick. If you just want to give us a a brief introduction, and I'll ask you the same thing I asked everybody else. What is your name? Your sobriety date, and would you have described yourself as a high or low functioning drinker? Our well first of all. I just want to thank you for the opportunity. My name is Greg Champion on my sobriety Dayton's eleven seven, nineteen, ninety-four. I can tell you that I was facing five years in prison so. This was a nice kid from a nice city with private school college degree, and my disease took me on the brink of facing five years in prison, so I would consider myself. A low bottom got an. We'll get into that here in just a minute real quick. If you would just tell us just about you right now, you know where you live. How old you are! What you do for a living married kids hobbies anything like that name's Greg Champion of fifty one years old. I live in Pacific Palisades California which is just a suburb of Los Angeles. I work in a recovery business and I. Have a wife named Jennifer. A nine year, old daughter, a lease, and a seven year, old daughter name Annabel and some of my hobbies. It's funny I do some of the same hobbies as a kid I body sir. I skateboard and I'm obsessed with mint chocolate chip milkshakes from Baskin Rob's. I love that milkshakes her a hobby. My minor oreos right now so. Comfortable, well, let's get into your story and here in ten minutes or less. Tell us how long you drank cal long it was a problem and why you decided to stop you know. My story begins at four and a half years old. My father was killed in a drunk on your car crash. and I felt different. A mealy filled different because I was gonNA have a dad I. everybody else had two cars in a garage two incomes their DADS were there soccer coaches at our liberty coaches. And so from four and a half to two nine years old when my mom remarried I definitely feel different. And my alcoholism showed up before you even took a drink. A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety. And is exactly what my mother needed and in many ways exactly what I needed, misstep misstep. but what happened was for me was puberty. Right around twelve or thirteen right his cougars kicking and I was entering my freshman year of high school. I found a solution alcohol, marijuana and cocaine I also wanted to show off in front of the girls, and so between the peer pressure of school, looking at pretty girls, and the availability of drugs and alcohol I was well on my way to find my new solution to my inner pane. Did that for a few years might pattern. High School was that I would drink on Friday. Nights drove on Saturday mornings I would again drink on Saturday nights throat on Sunday mornings in the insanity of that going on for four years straight still not hitting square in the is. when all my friends were. Being talked to about school counselor colleges to go the Trish. They were going to cal and Stanford and Michigan Texas Nice Schools in my career counselors, talking about trade schools eventually ended up at a trade school. Arizona State University. and as many no, let's Party School and my alcoholism. Just blew up from there I began doing ecstasy lots of cocaine. In I got out into the real world. And light, actually the day I graduated I got my first you is. Six months later I got arrested for assault. In a bar. A few months later. I got arrested twice in twenty four hours in Mardi Gras. And here's the sicknesses disease stretches I was. There Bourbon Street my first night and went up to speak Irish combination. This is new rules what? What can I do and he says don't piston the streets and don't fight and streets. and. So Trish I'm GonNa have you guess what two things I got arrested for? Did you see while you were fighting with somebody or I'm not that multitalented. So the happened I and less than eighteen hours later, I was led out got back on the streets. got drunk and high again it could not find a bathroom, so I decided in the streets and got caught one more time and so. I have a nice arrest record there in the lovely speakeasy of Louisiana got to be the most eventful twenty four hours I've ever heard of by the way, but I don't WanNa. Take, I. Don't want to interrupt too much. Go ahead, but no, it's crazy. I was real resentful for a lot of years that hey you guys took away my Mardi Gras. You guys, you guys room. I buzz. You know for years. Even sober years in a one old-timer pulls me aside goes. Let me tell you how. How God works God put you in those paddy wagons to save your ass. Because what would happen if he would've stayed out there, you would have been stabbed. Shot would hooked up with some girl and probably got S. t you don't know what would happen, but both those times. He puts you in a paddy wagon because he did for you. What you do yourself and it hit me right between the eyes young. He was right. He's absolutely right. Then I went back to the San. Diego Start Working and I had some resentments. I was promised to a high paying job at a college. I. Was only making nineteen thousand dollars a year and I was working overnight, said the TV station. I don't know about you, Trish when I would get out of work at three o'clock am. There's certain people that are out at three am right. And those lower companions I found these he's lower companions were were girls. You can't bring home to mom and some drug dealers. and. They asked me if If I had any friends on the east coast I, did and we began shipping large amounts of marijuana out to the east coast. and I was part of that process. Eventually I got arrested. In an airport with fifty pounds of pot.
How Do I Prune an Overgrown Hydrangea?
"Says it's about that time of year to Prune my hydro Angius and how far back should I TRIM? It's it's a huge plant and hasn't been touched in about ten years. Oh Wow you know typically when we talk about pruning how far back to cut you. Always kind of use the one third role but hydrangea so a little tricky It depends on when they bloom. if they bloom in late summer Then they are really blooming on new growth from the spring. So you can prune them now up. Either you can em as far back as you want because all the new growth is going to give you the blooms And this is GonNa be the types Like Annabel Limelight some of those varieties But if it's one that Bloomsburg say midsummer blue one Or maybe something like an Oakley Hydrangea Then it's going to boom on old wood which was actually started to grow last fall so the time to prune them is in an after they bloom in In late summer early fall so you know so. They have time to put out new growth. That is going to actually give booms for the next year so You know I know this sounds confusing and that's probably why Fred probably gets. This gets question multiple times over the years I wanted to Prune. Hydrangea I think the best thing to do. Would if you did it if you have Internet access if you just put an question when to Prune Hydrangea And there's a lot of good resources there that kind of help you divide the ones that like to be pruned in in the fall river versus the ones. I'd like to be pruned this time of year. Well not only that. But it's spread has has Mentioned at least I've heard him say that. There are so many varieties. Now of HYDRANGEA. It's hard to tell because now they have ones that bloom pretty much all summer. Yeah and you know that's why I think If you did a search like this Fact as I'm as I'm talking I have just put that same question and and I found a site Actually coming from Gardner Supply Company which I love their products. And is and the question when to Prune hydrangea and And this person has got pictures and a chart and he tells switch drainage is To Prune and late winter like now and which ones to to prune after they build them in the summer so I think that's It's got some great pictures here too. She kinda help you sort it out
How to Home-School Your Kids Like a Pro During Coronavirus
"We thought we'd do a few short episodes talking about life in these sort of more challenging times is everything is in flux so both. Sarah on iron working from home right now. I mean I always do but Sarah tell us a little bit about your situation and how this has changed with the corona virus epidemic going on. Yeah there's just I mean I'm a hospital. Worker and part of my job is clinical and part of it is more of a leadership role with our residents and everything is really up in the air right now. I'm currently working from home because I have a very mild cough and just in an abundance of caution in our healthcare system has Basically required anybody with any kind of symptoms. That could be anything to stay on out of there which is very smart to protect our patients and protect other caregivers. Because you know if we interact with our colleagues and then spent something around then that could be very bad and there's just so much uncertainty with this. We don't know you know exactly how long most people are contagious for like we don't know You know the the the rate of symptomatic shedding that happens. We don't even know how good kids are as vectors. So there's all these question marks and politics aside. I think we're all in the same boat right now as many of you guys are all working parents and we all have our kids at home. Which many view a few of you not many of you? A few of them might be home school. So that's normal but most of you probably aren't exactly no. It's funny because I've written a couple articles over the years about people who work and also home school and it's more possible in these days than it would have been like you know in the in the past that just would have been like what on earth like that. Those two things. Don't go together. But there are so many ways of working work does not need to be done at a particular time in place necessarily for some people and school actually doesn't have to be done at a particular time and place in many cases With the rise of remote learning options. I'm certainly children. Who are slightly older are able to be quite self directed in terms of their learning. And there's actually a number of like online charter schools for instance and I think you mentioned like Florida has virtual school right for for Housebound children they do like. I've had patients that use it. They haven't deployed it to any of the current students yet but I know that platform does exist. Because I've had some medically complex patients. Like patients. Going through Chemo or who? Otherwise just aren't safe to be in the regular school system Have done school from home. And it's considered actually separate from the homeschool. It's considered an actual public school called Florida virtual school. So I mean I don't know will happen. I do think everyone needs to bre- from minute because it's been like five seconds and then there's been like ninety five elaborate schedules. Maybe I'm guilty. I mean I made one although mine is like super non elaborate so involved a lot of screen time so But like I'm not super worried about my kids like losing a ton of ground. Maybe because my kids are pretty young. Yeah like if we do a couple hours of stuff each day and that can include reading will probably be. Okay yeah well. That's the cool thing. I mean from having studied a lot of home schoolers. Schedules Fun Fun fact here. My senior thesis at Princeton was actually on home schooling. That's how long ago I was interested in this topic but it was it was less common than But it the people who do this. It doesn't take six and a half hours a day. Or whatever your state mandated. Instructional time is for your for your schools. You can a lot of that. Time at school is transitions. It's Things that your kids might be doing anyway like recess or eating lunch. It's things that you might not even consider to be part of school while they are. But you might do them on your own like instrument practice for instance or reading right like having. That's that's part of it too like a elementary school teacher is GonNa have their kids. Read do silent reading for Awhile. And so that's part of it as well. So the actual instructional part can be relatively limited and still be moving forward. Mike Kids depending on age have have somewhere between two hours and fifteen minutes in three hours of stuff that I have assigned per day and an hour of that is independent reading. So we're it's it's not like eight hours a day by by any means but it's actually been kind of fun to try on. Dance Day Day. Three Day three here. Oh right your little bit. You guys were one of the first. We're on the district's too close. So we knew it was coming and we have gotten into it now but Yeah no each. We have a checklist each day which the kids have one hour reading. They have thirty minutes of math practice which we have been doing. Khan Academy in Dream Box. Ruth was creating her own worksheets for a while but then she thought better than we have a thirty minute research project which each day we have a different subject so we. I did science than we did. History today was health related so everyone research to different epidemic and they need to write me up a short report on it. You know based on link sort of based on kid age but So they can get writing practice in. How is how is Alex's report he doesn't have to do this his his He gets stories right. We're reading stories than he does Ten minutes of writing practice just just sort of keep working on the hand coordination and then we've actually been working with him through the bedtime math books which I can highly recommend they are by Laura Who did a couple of these there several of these books? But it's the idea that set up like a bedtime story so you read a short paragraph that sets up a topic and then they have four different levels of math problems associated with the story problems in so you read it to the kids in the figure it out a So we've been doing that with Alex for math cool. Yeah we have like our kids homework. They use a program called. I ready for both reading and math. I think it's a Florida state wide thing so we've just continued their normal cycle of that and we use reflex math for math. Which is more just? It's not really like they. Have I ready? Math for more concept type stuff and reflects is just like animals memorizing timetables and Cameron's trying to learn like four plus three. So we do that and then have them write a story Either like a journal? Entry of what's going on. I think those are GonNa get a little repetitive. But we'll see for Cameron. It's more leg. Tried to write one picture and then I asked him to read either two chapters of a chapter book either. Annabel can read it to cameron or he can read his own to picture books or she can like whatever they want but like two books or chapters. Yeah so sounds good animal would you do? She's like I read genevieve green eggs and Ham. Good I mean. There's so many things you learn by doing that right. I mean I. In addition to the reading practice obviously but reading out loud is itself a skill that I would say. Many adults don't do very well. That's a real presenting. Words to other people is not automatic. And so you're absolutely right about that. She's working on that now. Wait we're actually So the First official virtual Instructional Day starts tomorrow recording this on a Tuesday so the Wednesday. Our teachers are starting to send assignments So we will incorporate that into the schedule. It's mostly Jasper. Who's going to have the more formal remote instruction like his different. Teachers are posting assignments. So he's GonNa start mostly doing that. The other kids. I think it'll be more just reinforced like math practice. And things like that so you know they'll still need a few additional things to keep them busy and we are still having our nanny come because currently I still have a lot of work. Responsibilities headache seven thirty. Am Conference calls every day. And then I have to disseminate that information to the residents and trying to redesign a lot of their education to figure out how to do it remotely which is not that easy apparently now also yeah I feel like I know this is a dilemma for a lot of people but our nanny herself has sort of agreed to isolate Incidentally she has like the same coffee shop. So I'm not worried about transmitting or getting or giving her 'cause that already happened before all of this but yeah. I know. This is sort of a dilemma for some people whether or not. It's even okay to do that. There are a lot of college students that currently have a lot of free time. That might even you know I was thinking about. It might even be willing to live in if you have the space to keep them so they could become a defacto additional family member. If you really need some somebody You know you can pay them. They can earn extra money. And you could get your remote work done without worrying about an infection risk. Especially if they're willing to to stay with
Wild Hydrangeas of the World
"Dan Hinkley it's great to have you back on the podcast. Welcome thank you very much Matt. It's great to be back. Well you've already been on the episode before and we've talked a lot about your background but for those that didn't listen or new to hearing your name Tell us a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well essentially A glorified gardener. I am the director at Herons Garden in Kingston Washington Nets Garden that I started in nineteen eighty seven with my partner Rubber Jones. I currently have a personal garden in India. Nola just twelve miles away from Heron's book called win cliff. Both of those gardens are open to the public. If you should ever find yourself in the areas of the we encourage people to come to walk around and and then I do a little writing. Delo speaking some design consultation so a lot of a lot of fingers in different pots but all in all plants in on all the blast. Ya Fantastically charmed existence for any plant lover but You Know People WanNa know more about your background in You're working plant exploration. They can listen to the previous episode. After that was recorded we talked a little bit about maybe diving into more detail into some of your favorite groups and we both agreed that the hydrangea. We're going to be the topic of discussion and I'm really excited to pick your brain about this. This group of plants today great. I mean it's one that I have had an infatuation with ever since I've been a kid and of course it's another one of those wonders of the plant world at once. You get to know a little you you realize how little you know and so you know it's unfolding but ever so entertaining both four in a plant explorer but also for a gardener at the such great application to gardens of North America and in Europe. Weather not necessarily native to write. And this idea that the more you look the more you realize how little you know about this group I mean. This exemplifies my entire experience Since we talked about doing this episode of growing up my experience with hydro was largely just a couple of pom pom varieties and then a little bit later on meeting. At least one or two are native species in the wild in southern Appalachia but I had no idea the breadth of what this genus in this family overall has presented the world. It's been very successful in north and south and east and West and just like you had a hydrangea. Nekia Lada outside our back door in northern Michigan. That's like zone. Three B thing. Some managed to survive in blonde some every year. And then we also had hydrangea lessons. Annabel and everybody my age at least to live on the east coast new or knows Annabel because it was such a mainstay a mop head. Arborescence wanted a heartiest hydrogen. Just so you know. That's that's where my introduction came as well but as I started traveling I was dumbfounded. By how many niches they have occupied. How successful the genus. The family as Ben as a whole and also at least in the Pacific northwest. How many of those can be brought into cultivation in? Add a great deal to the garden not only by flower but with foliage as well. Yeah and so thinking broadly about this. I was actually new to the idea. That hydrangea had. Its own family. I kind of limited with CAPRA fully. Acc so sort of a broad spectrum treatment for taxonomy sake here. What's going on with this group Obviously is a lot more refined but it was even a decade ago when I first started looking at these. You'd oftentimes find Hydrangea For Gay she was one of those bags of everything that didn't know where they belong. They put it in the sanctuary. Casey so It has now been refined obvious. Leads through a lot of different means available to taxonomic. It is a family to its own. Hydrogen Jasey and they have Would quickly dissect this. There's two sub families in hydrogen JC Eighty and James Yoy D. And then within the sub family HYDRANGEA LADY. They have made two tribes. Which are the hydrogen d. e. In Philadelphia? So it really for the sake of time in one hour fairly gonNA scratch the surface with just hydrology e which is where the the breadth of ornament event is but the the other tribe in the in the hand I drank. Philadelphia's obviously has Philadelphia has dude see as a tremendous number of other plants that we are familiar with in our garden so they're lumped rate in with hydrogen JC. Now that's awesome. Yeah then there's you know it's one of those things where again I looked deeper and realized I recognized a lot of those those. I guess that makes sense that they're related but again for the sake of time. The hydrangea you're going to be our focus specifically the genius hydrangea and roughly speaking. I mean we're we're still working and I'm sure things will change In the years or decades to come but roughly speaking how many species are within the genus. Hydrangea There's you know it changes. Because obviously lumper's lumper's splitters continually added but it ranges around sixty about sixty species. But you know they're still discovering new species and in particular in northern parts of South America just three years ago they identified. I think it was fourteen. Fourteen or fifteen new species of climbing Evergreen hydrangea from the mountains of northern Ecuador and Peru Bolivia Colombia in there. So you know. It's still a lot to be learned about true. Hydrangea as out there. They certainly have not all been discovered yet. Another big realization for me in trying to get familiar with this genus was this diversity of life-form you mentioned climbing and I'm sure. Plenty of gardeners will recognize climbing varieties of her Georgia. In of course the obvious shrubbery ones. I mean this is a really cool thing that that seems. Like hydrangea has found different ways. To make a living as a woody plant depending on where you're you're looking for them yet no Absolutely Obviously most people in North America will be familiar with hydrogen novela which is an Asian species. That's the hardest most dependable deciduous flowering plant for Shade Climbing Planet. I should say ourself clinging plant for shade in climates But new go south on occasion in Asia's while you find climbing evergreen species of hydrogen in I would say ninety nine point nine percent gardeners even in the Pacific northwest where we can grow. So many of these are aware of the fact that there are climbing evergreen branches at provide grateful during the summertime and wintertime and then beautiful flowers. That are dead ringers. For what we in our minds think of is a hydrant right on and in thinking about sort of diversity at least here in North America You know sort of West East divide always stands out especially when it comes to gardening You're located on the West Coast as you mentioned what you have over there or is this something that at least in. North America is largely assigned to east of the Mississippi and Sorta down south from there. So like in a broad sense mad here. I'm I'm sitting nine Sonny Bloch this morning a rare sunny day in the puget sound area and right off the block that I live on the two hundred foot bluff repeat Assam. We have native stands of our native Philadelphia's Philadelphia's Louis named after obviously Lewis and Clark fame and in the broad sense that is indeed in the hydrant JC. So I can't discount the those plants. If you to California now you can find Wesleyan Carpentaria and of course James Lia and a few other genera mostly not all that ornamental so. I can't say that west of the Mississippi is deposited in hydrogen JC but Zero through hike packages zero. So we have to get east of the Mississippi before we run into the only two representatives of the genus in North America. And you.

Testimony alleging past Weinstein sexual assaults bolstered difficult case
"Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted rapist we can talk about the various counts that the jury found him guilty or not guilty on yesterday but in plain English Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted rapist also in plain English my next guest former New York sex crimes prosecutor Jane manning is quoted in The Washington Post today saying this is one of those days when the whole world changes let's talk about how with me now is Jane manning director of advocacy for the group women's justice now which campaigns for better prosecution and prevention of violent crimes against women and provides direct services to survivors as they navigate the criminal justice system she helped lead successful campaigns to repeal New York statute of limitations on rape cases and to criminalize strangulation attacks Jane thank you so much for joining us thank you so much frame how much do you think one man being convicted of crimes yesterday is the story and how much do you really think the whole world changed well this one story will have huge ripple effects for the whole world it tells survivors that there is hope for justice it tells sexual predators that no one is above the law and it tells prosecutors that if you're brave and you take difficult challenging cases to trial you may be able to succeed a New York times op ed today says that Mr Weinstein sixty seven that that he even stood trial was a remarkable anomaly a vast majority of sexual assault cases never reach the court now but this outcome is not an end point while there may never be another prosecution quite like the one of Mr Weinstein the article says increasingly we'll see others that resemble it and so my question is if you agree with that what kinds of trials may get brought that may not have were it not for this case it's such a great question and the answer I think is that's up to all of us it's up to prosecutors who make those decisions dated day whether to turn down cases of rape unless they're a slam dunk win which happens in all too many DA's offices but it's also up to the rest of us in our communities because DJs are elected locally and it's up to us in our communities to sound off and make sure the candidates for district attorney and incumbent district attorneys understand that fair and vigorous prosecution of rape is something that the community holds to be important here's Gloria Allred speaking yesterday the lawyer or one of the lawyers for the accusers in this case it's no longer business as usual in the United States this is the age of empowerment of women and you can intimidate them anymore because women will not be silenced they will speak up they will have their voice they will stand up and be subjected to your small army of defense attorneys cross examining them attempting to discredit them two million eight them shame them and they will still stand in their truth so Harvey Weinstein this just this has been a long time coming but it's finally here attorney Gloria Allred yesterday and she's a lawyer but she wasn't speaking just legally is there or in technical legal terms I think she was talking about cultural change yes she was and I'm so glad that she anchored her comments around the survivors who testified in who spoke out because to the extent that this verdict offers us a chance at broad social change and and the only chance that depends on what we do with it but we all have that chance to the women who spoke out about Harvey Weinstein and especially the women who testified in court the two who received convictions and the many women who didn't receive a conviction including Annabella Sciorra and can I say something about her case she testified in this case as somebody who is also a victim of Harvey Weinstein but I guess because the statute of limitations laws could not that case could not be prosecuted right that case could not be prosecuted and moreover the counts that depended on Annabella sh your as testimony as a predicate offence of preceding offense those were counts of the jury felt him not guilty on and a lot of people will wonder what does that mean that the jury didn't believe Annabel sure are and I just want to say it doesn't necessarily mean that many observers felt that Annabella sh your was extremely credible and probably the most corroborated of all the witnesses who testified and the jury's verdict might have had something to do with hello how many years back the case stretched one of the first questions was about the statute of limitations and Annabel sure his case and that might have been their concern it doesn't mean that they didn't believe her but what I want people to know is that her testimony mattered it supported the accounts of Mimi Haleyi and Jessica man and after I heard the verdict yesterday I spent a lot of time thinking about Annabel shura and I was worried and I thought maybe she felt a sense that the jury didn't believe her and and then I read her quote and here's what she said she said my testimony was painful but necessary I spoke for myself and with the strength of the eighty plus victims of Harvey Weinstein in my heart and when I heard those words Brian it's filled my heart and I knew that at all sure it was going to be okay but on the chance that like a good New Yorker she listens to the Brian Lehrer show I I didn't want to say this to Annabella I wanted to say would you also keeping your heart my thanks and the thanks of a multitude of people who believe you and honor you your testimony mattered and it made a difference how much do you thing believing women that phrase that we've heard so much kind of flipped from where generally has been historically injuries they have to believe the accounts of what happened that Harvey Weinstein denied and they had to believe them even in light of some of the narrative which would have prevented cases like this from being brought in the past as I understand it that they kept in touch with him that there was consensual sex after the non consensual sex that in one case a woman who change phone numbers one of the accusers even gave him her new phone phone number these would have been things in the past that would have let juries to disbelief what changed I think the jury in this case worked really hard they had testimony read back they took days to deliberate and I think that ultimately they were persuaded by the evidence that showed that one of the victims many have late was financially dependent on her relationship with Harvey Weinstein she needed to keep on good terms with him in order for her career to keep going the other victim Jessica man had a situation that was more complicated she was in a relationship with him and relationship violence is something that can be very hard to understand but it's very real and I think the fact that the clearly the jury took their time with that case as well and ultimately they didn't convict him of rape in the first degree they convicted him of rape in the third degree which I think reflects what we want jurors to do they listen they fought they struggled and I think they ultimately reached a verdict that showed careful reflection and attention to the evidence which you as a former prosecutor talk to the difference between first degree and third degree rape so he was convicted on third degree rape which as I understand it involves in the sale and having sex with someone without their consent where as first degree rape requires forcible compulsion be proof what's the difference between forcible and without their consent yeah so forcible compulsion first degree rape requires what the law describes as for sufficient to overcome lack of consent there is a sense of being physically over powered by the person and Jessica man did describe a situation in which she was physically over powered by Harvey Weinstein and the jury I think had legally sufficient evidence to convict on account if they had chosen to do so but they didn't they convicted of rape in the third degree and that refers to a situation where the the victim makes it clear that she's not consenting and the perpetrator goes ahead without her consent it's a it's a lower level of physical force that's required that's what the jury felt was supported by
