The battle over Chinese tech might not change under a Biden administration
"One thing. The biden administration will inherit when it comes into. Office is a trade and tech war with china. President trump put all kinds of restrictions on american companies doing business with china on the use of technology from chinese companies like z. T. weiwei bans on chinese smartphone. Sales here and of course an executive order banning tiktok and we chat that still in court the moves were ostensibly about national security but also an effort to keep china from developing the next generation of technology. Faster than the us. Sam sacks is a cyber fellow at the nonprofit new america and a research scholar at yale. I asked her what. Us china tech relations are like right now. I think it's just creating this. Uncertainty are us companies going to have to choose. They want to tap into essential founding to bring home manufacturing to the united states or they want to choose to be in china at tap into gusty or policy in china. And it's kind of creating a sort of zero sum environment for business. The what does that mean for the incoming biden administration. What might we see. Around these restrictions via administration one wants to shift away from a unilateral approach going to partners and allies in europe. And saying hey if you don't ban away from your networks we're not going to share intelligence with you anymore. I think we're going to still see a hard line. Approach on companies like wow way but the intent is to do it with other countries The challenge here with the multilateral approach is here's a real digital divide across the atlantic right now and european officials have basically said we're just as concerned about the unregulated power of silicon valley companies as we are about authoritarian Coming from china one had bridged. At digital chasm and to there are countries in europe that are really dependent on chinese exports and it actually double down or invest in rnd china interesting so the biden administration may attempt to pursue a more multilateral approach. But find that the isolation is kind of embedded. it's not as global and effort as as we thought. I think they're going to have to really walk back from the isolationism under the trump administration. And also i think get our own house in order when it comes to technology policy european concerns about in the us have to do with things like however regulating privacy and anti and surveillance here. Which sundays are bigger issues than just china. So we have to find alignment on those grounds before. We can begin to work with europe as a counterweight to china. What has china done in the interim to become an even more important supplier to other parts of the world by placing these restrictions on china. Did the us actually force china to kickstart more of its own technology. Chinese government has long talked about weaned off of reliance on foreign technology and they throw billions of dollars in a lot of policy support at industries like semiconductors but then they haven't really succeeded at doing it. I think what happened though. Is the Away these were wakeup calls. That said you know what. It's this is a national security issue if companies like wal wait get embargoed from chips and software so. Let's make sure we do this right. And we've seen as a doubling down on china's efforts to wean off foreign technology. You know maybe time around will be successful. It's been studying in the past though. And then what about strategically growing the tech sector in the us moving semiconductor development to the united states. Being less reliant on that chinese supply chain. Have we seen that. Start to expect it to continue jill really early days. So there's a number of bills making their way through congress which would create more incentives for us companies to invest in our d. manufacturing. At home. you know this is one of the areas. I think where a divided congress might actually make some progress China has had made in china twenty twenty-five baited america. Twenty twenty five may come back around and particularly if you're happy. Gop led senate where they're going to try to block a lot of up biden initiatives american industrial policy might be the one area where they kindergarten. What about tiktok do you think we're gonna get to keep it biden administration probably thanks. There are bigger data security risks out there than tiktok one and two. There's a real concern about the overuse of executive authority. The problem is that it really politically difficult to stand. Our the litigation. That's going on. I think politically will be hard for the biden administration to withdraw that case even if they think there's bigger fish to fry and there are a lot of problems that come with setting a precedent like bannon and appalachia talk. But it's not going to be easy to do. I don't think will be top of his agenda.
Coronavirus cases go up, the market goes down
"Yet things up it's pretty simple. Virus cases are way way higher in way more places. There is no relief package coming probably February at the earliest if at all, if everybody is honest with themselves. And that's it that all spills over into the real economy which the stock market is not thank you very much but it does reflect and so you get a cratering day on Wall Street today all three major indices off three three and a half percent all sectors got clobbered including the reason commercial aviation. We mentioned that because Boeing reported a quarterly loss of four hundred and sixty, six, million dollars this morning planes just aren't selling right now company also said it's GonNa lay off and other seven thousand people. So marketplaces and Euler gets his going with a story about a company that is a big factor in that real economy I was talking about. Boeing said today expects to end next year with around one hundred, thirty, thousand employees. It started twenty twenty with a workforce of one, hundred, sixty, thousand. Richard Otto Lafi as an aviation analyst at -Til Group historically, Boeing's been the world single biggest planemaker and the biggest single exporting manufacturer in the US. So it really isn't needle mover in terms of the broader economy and Sorta like Ge. Boeing has worked to diversify Boeing has a lot of commercial military defense software and engineering programs. It's not just building the. Big Seven, forty, seven jets of old. That's Arthur Wheaton at Cornell University. It's a pretty big corporation and has a huge impact on supply chains. He says there's a vast array of subcontractors in the US and worldwide that produce four and with Boeing. So in demand for Boeing products declines, it's felt by many of Boeing seventeen, thousand suppliers like those who make. Jet Engines and parts for wings keeping my you know these are not just people that are turning wrench. Michael Boyd is an aviation industry consultant in Evergreen Colorado. So it's not like just getting rid of couple of mechanics you're getting rid of some highly trained people that you're going to have to get back eventually when people eventually returned to flying but Richard. APPALACHIA te'o groups as his fear is that manufacturing will soon start feeling the pain of the pandemic like retail and hospitality already have and I think unfortunately, we're bound to see additional production cuts in job losses in the commercial aerospace industry along with other similar losses and other parts of the economy because as the biggest companies go so goes the American economy. I mean dealer for

Apple product-launch event features one big unknown
"I'm not even going to wait. To Bury the leader, I am going to lead with the lead, which is apple's. Upcoming special event that's going to be happening on Tuesday the apple time flies special event virtual event. Not GonNa. Have any press their in person, but they are going to hold it on. Apple's campus. As. A matter of fact they put up a web page on their site for the virtual event and it has a little hidden Easter egg feature. If you go to the page on and I, list of ice, an IPAD or an iphone, and you tap on the little event logo, Apple Logo, you get a whole augmented reality experience that you can play around with. So it's pretty interesting I won't give away what is if you haven't seen it yet just fire up your way you're safari on Ios and go to the apple event page, but the event is going to be streamed live September fifteenth starting at ten Am Pacific Time from the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus. They're saying this one is going to be streamed I believe. So I don't know if there's going to be reproduced like they did the last apple event for worldwide developer conference or if it actually is truly going to be a live event, we'll just have to wait and see they are saying lives. So take them at their word on that one. As you can probably guess from the title, it is believed that this event is going to focus on Apple Watch, Time flies, watch it all fits. Typically, apple announces new watches alongside their iphones but as with almost everything this year this year is different. We already know that apple had plans to delay the announcements of release of the IPHONE that came up actually in the worldwide developer conference call or was it last quarterly results colleague Arab? Quarterly. Results called that came up and So we're not expecting iphones, but we are expecting Apple Watch. So Apple Watch series six is should be coming out. The rumors are looking to be true. We're expecting them to add a blood oxygen level monitoring as the main new health feature in it. Also, we're hearing about improved cardio gram or electrocardiogram features. Also, design is expected to remain mostly the same although we could always get some new finishes colors. Of course, new watch bans usually come out seasonally around this time. So the new fall colors we would expect to see that there is some hints that there might be a new blue color. Midnight Blue Agassi's this is also a rumor we've been hearing about surrounding the iphone twelve that it might come in a new. Blue Color. I'm I'm kind of thinking with a name like midnight blue. That it could be more like blue black SORTA like they did with the the green model in the iphone eleven although the logo for the new event is kind of this Pale lighter blue and I've seen some mockups and some people suspecting that it could be that sort of blue collar. But I think they specifically said midnight blue, which says to me a deep rich dark black. Style. Blue. So we could get a new color apple-watching that could be a hint of a possible new color item they a lot of times like to match those things and then there was also It's expected that they're going to drop the forced touch feature and that's mostly because they're also removing from watch os seven. So it doesn't really make sense need to have the hardware in there anymore, and apple has been moving away. From force touch. With all of their products in recent years. So that makes sense. There's also a rumor that I read that it could possibly the new Apple Watch. have. A fast charging feature to help better support the new sleep tracking that's coming in watch seven. So the ideas you'd be sleeping through the night and then when you're getting up in the morning I would remind you to throw it on the charger get charged back up for the day. and. So if you had a fast charging feature I think more people would be willing to do that to know the not going to run out with their to not. They're not going to excuse me run out of. Battery do during the day. So those are some of the new features planned for the APPALACHIA six or rumored to be planned for the Apple Watch series six. Also at this event, there are possible rumors of a replacement for the Apple Watch series three most of this information coming from leaker John Prosser. Says this is going to be the lower cost option. Apple has had the Apple Watch series three in the lineup that was kind of entry level Apple Watch, and then you would move from there. He says, the design would largely remain the same as the Apple Watch series for with a forty forty millimeter and a forty four millimeter size available. One of the things they would do to keep the cost down would would be that the new watch would not have some of the more advanced features like the e c g APP or the always on display definitely going to be an entry level model he also mentions the branding would be that the low cost model would be the Apple Watch with the series six, possibly getting a new apple watch pro branding, and while on the surface that makes a lot of sense considering how apple. Markets some of their other products and the other parts of the lineup kind of brings it in line with all of that, there has been some. there has been some conflicting information coming from I'm more who has been calling the new lower cost Apple Watch replacement for the Apple Watch series three Apple Watch S E and You know apple often will play around with different marketing names in different branding, leading all the way up to the event. So all of this kind of has to be taken with a grain of salt we won't really know to apple till apple announces it. So they've probably played around with all this branding. Do we take the low cost model and call it the se in that kind of matches with some of our other branding? Do we go the whole Apple Watch, Apple Watch pro route and I'm sure they've thought of it all. Who knows what they've actually decided on I? Guess we'll find out at the event on Tuesday.

Identifying Sedges and Rushes
"GONNA start off with a section for the plant new talking about what the differences are between surges, grasses and rushes and C. L. had a pneumonic device or saying that I really liked and I. Bet. It's going to help you remember what the differences are. So C L would you share that with US please note this sort of to my mind when I was at the Garden Center where I work the other day and one of my fellow employees, he brought a a plant but some customer had growing in his lawn and he said I always get confused between the correct the sensors and the grasses, and I'm not sure which this is and he gave it to me and I said, well, here's how you can remember said just have edges Russia's are round and grasses have nodes from the tips to the ground. I like that one a lot. It's a good thing to help people figure out how to identify their own plants for so many reasons first of all, because you know it's good to know what you have but second of all, if you come across something unexpected or unknown in your garden, maybe something you didn't plant it'll help you figure out whether it's something you want to keep in your garden something you WanNa pass along to a friend or something you WanNa, throw on the compost pile so Let's start with having edges because it's such a nice raw and said just which is the genus Karic's right We have a native such as I think in every state first of all and important to know what they are because sometimes I know in my area people say, Oh, what is that grass that is growing in the woodland and it's so pretty and nobody ever knows that I want that in my yard right but it isn't a grass, it's a and it's either character Pennsylvania or or. Appalachia and these are native such as in our area, and they are beautiful and the edges is they just have a blade that has an edge, the outside edges, and then Kinda fooled in the middle and that goes all the way down in the plant. So so she cut in cross section, it would almost triangular. That's right. Yeah. That's right and one of the really nice things to my to my mind because my. House in Pennsylvania is in the woods and what I love about the characters that. So many of them will tolerate some shade whereas in in the ornamental grass category there there are some grasses that will tolerate but most of them, really like full sun. So using a character is a great way to get that shape into your garden. If you've gotTa Shadier spot the native ones, they are beautiful dark green, their drought tolerant. So they are not spreaders like grasses are usually they're mo- grow more in clumped, but once they get established in an area. They are fairly thick and almost look like a very long lawn in shade, and so they're very pretty and then there are those variegated ones or any number of them that make either great single specimen plants in your garden. Or make great ground cover I have carrots ice dance in my garden, and that's a very vigorous grower and as such, it makes a great ground cover and another way to use these characters. Especially, some of the larger ones some of them that are maybe a little bit taller than you might expect ground cover to be is. A great transition plant. It helps link different parts of your garden bed together. So if you've got a MAGENTA flower here in an orange flower here and you don't particularly want them next to each other plant, some carrots in between in in some kind of interesting shape with a curve and and help the the garden, make the transition from one color to another and if you use a variegated variety of. You're going to have that color in your garden all season long because it's not something that you plant for its flowers, you get the color from the foliage itself. So let's talk a little bit about Russia's when we have both. Russia's that are native and Russia's that are not and they are indeed round. They have a blade that comes up oftentimes they have a little flower on the end of that round leaf and we often find Russia's growing in places where the soil is a little bit moist. Although, I will say that in my area of new, England John Fuses is our native rush and I see that kind of popping up willing to take its chances in drier areas as well. So and these are very pretty plants. They are pretty and they have I mean the texture. So interesting. So you mentioned that there round and unlike the. If you caught a blade of a rush. In half and Cross section, you would see that round shape of the stem, some of the taller ones. Open and spreading sort of vase like shapes. So it's a plant that you can see through and appreciate the structure of the plant almost like a living sculpture in your

Citizen science project is changing the climate conversation
"White Husic is a biology professor at Moravian College in Pennsylvania. She studies how climate change affects forest habitats in the mountains of Appalachia and had been thinking a long time about how to engage people in conversation about climate change and a state that has a long history of fossil fuel use especially in rural areas. Where it's kind of controversial so in two thousand ten US started the eastern Pennsylvania phonology project. She has local residents to submit data about when they saw certain flowers. Blooming trees leaping out and birds returning in the spring. I thought it might be interesting to think about. What are people noticing in their backyards? Perhaps a way to start a conversation. That wasn't politicized right from the beginning. She says the project helped her build relationships with local residents and organizations who now trust her expertise she's been invited to speak to fishing and hunting groups and she says people call up to talk about what they're observing in the region and they contact me to say. Hey I noticed this change. Do you think it's due to that stuff? You work on is almost like this. Don't say climate change but they're talking about it and asking about it which I think is a huge change from just a few years
Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why
"TALKING FRESHWATER MUSSELS. And the fact that they're dying off. Where should we start so I actually want to take you to South West Virginia right near the border with Tennessee? Mattie put on your waiters done okay because we're about to get into the waters of the clinch river so the clinch river flows at the feet of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The water is cold very clear and that is good news because freshwater mussels live on the bottom of rivers. They're kind of like sorta like the less edible version of their saltwater cousin they don't get the same love but they bury themselves in the sediment and among the rocks on the bottoms of rivers and I went out to find some of these muscles with Jordan Richard a biologist with the US fish and wildlife service who is obsessed with freshwater mussels and it did not take him long waiting out into the water for him to find what he did not want to see how long this is a matter of like. How long does it take until we see something that died very recently won? Shell was just laying there even say it's not buried. That's its footing Jordan. There he'd reached into the water and pulled out that muscle a pheasant shell. That's the species but should be buried in food. Not that's dead and this show is about the size of his palm. It's this beautiful. Golden Brown color But the Muslim side is usually a smooth. Pink is turning Greyish Brown and frayed around Sedgwick's Basically it's rotting in place. I saw that one took a few steps out and by the time I stopped right there at like five expecting not a good way which I'm pretty I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing and I'm GonNa see just getting completely like bombed with the muscles but it's obsolete lousy you out there finding like dead muscle after dead muscle. Yeah I mean they were everywhere and you heard Jordan say but this is really not what he was expecting. It was not the time of year that they typically see a bunch of mortality You know he was just being nice and taking a reporter but biologists have been going at different sections of the clinch river since it was first noted in two thousand sixteen and in just one section of that river the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the number of pheasant shell muscles that have died is in the hundreds of thousands knee. It sounded like I don't know just hearing his voice on the tape that he was super upset. Yeah I mean he was on the verge of tears when we were talking and then he tried to apologize about later. Which I didn't think was obviously not necessary but it was upset because he's so frustrated by what's happening they don't know what's causing this and there's this kind of feeling of helplessness. This guy is so passionate about freshwater ego systems. It's his entire life. I mean he actually said that he had three fish tanks house one by his bed one by the foot of his bed and one in the living room so yeah very understanding wife. Okay but let's talk a little bit more about why people are trying so hard to save these muscles. They play a really important role in freshwater ecosystems. Right totally so. They don't often get the attention they deserve. Here's someone who knows that all too well. People don't tend to get quite as excited about things that lack burns. Unfortunately that was emily blevins. She's a conservation biologist with Versi Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Which you know besides having a really cool name is a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more under loved Chrisny. I'LL SAY AT ONCE. I'LL SAY THOUSAND TIMES INVERTEBRATES. Don't get enough credit. I know I mean I think as vertebrates are a little biased but these muscles do deserve a ton of credit. There are filter feeders so that means that they filter water through them. While they're down they're just chilling on River Bottoms. There's research that shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides and flame retardants and they remove E. coli from the water. They're like our little water filters exactly so a few of the biologists. I talked to really did say you can think of them. As nature's equivalent to a BRITTA filter cleaning up the water that we drink implant but they all sorts of cool stuff like reducing the size and impacts of dead zones. Those big nasty you know fishing life killing phenomena to keep occurring in the Gulf. They do that by filtering out. Sediment and agricultural runoff They sequester carbon phosphorus heavy metals in their shells. They reduce fecal bacteria from water. And you know like what's not to love about Madonna got it thank God. A single freshwater. Mussel can filter more than fifteen gallons of water in a day and besides that they provide habitat to tons of other species. One biologist described them as like the fresh water equivalent to a coral reef. So these muscles are clearly out here doing a lot of work. We don't have any idea what's causing these die-offs so no I mean we have some hunches but you know Jordan. The biologists set it could be a million different things that is causing this There's a bunch of folks working on this from around. The country. University was constant is doing a lot of work and they've recently identified a virus and bacteria that they say are statistically associated with the dial keywords being you know statistically associated so not enough to say hey dingaling we found it but they're highly suspicious of a pathogenic cause and that is where their research is focused right now. What about the stuff like we? Humans are doing on climate. Change for example. Does that seem to be a contributor at all? Well I mean there's no doubt. The climate change is stressing river ecosystems as it is just about every system everywhere but it does not seem to be the driver of what's going on here as far as scientists can tell But I think it's important to note that there are other human components it sort of brought us to this place as I mentioned freshwater mussels or already on the brink and that is because of human activity fun fact before the Aplastic Freshwater Mussels were actually collected in cultivated by the millions to satisfy a commercial demand for buttons. Their shells were pearly white inside right. Thanks for Buttons Fresh Harman's But even more damaging was just you know the general destruction that was brought along by Human Development. So there was pollution from coal mining in the southern Appalachia Rivers dammed for power streams diverted for agriculture wetlands pay for housing and all of those things have brought freshwater mussels to the point where a mysterious die off can happen and it becomes so crucial to find out why fast because there's so little wiggle room left in the system all right eight. Your bumming me out. What's the plan? So there is a contingency plan all right and there always needs to be a contingency plan But like most contingency plans. It's one that nobody wants to use in this case it's a hatchery or nursery more or less for freshwater mussels one of our living screams So pheasant shells in here. That's the one that really dial so basically this place is like a last line of defense for some of these species they're going to breed them in captivity so at least they're not totally gone from planet earth. Exactly so tim and the other. Biologists are reproducing muscles. Here keeping them safe until they're mature enough to be brought back into the wild they're basically stock and when the recent die off started on the clinch river. They brought a bunch of muscles here from part of the river that wasn't affected And those muscles could not just be used as stock but they could also use a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the die-offs 'cause Worst case scenario they have to take some of those muscles and try to repopulate parts of the Clinch River. Where the muscles of Dino are going to stand idly by watching the way we're GonNa do the best we can to help them produce progeny. So of the species isn't going for Jordan Richard. The biologist remitted beginning also is helping with this effort and he says it you know he knows. That muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or polar bears but freshwater mussels are crucial to the health of other species. So if they go. We're going to have a lot of problems is not sexy to care about the foundation of Your House and you could renovate your kitchen but he says if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it. And then everything else including your fancy. New Kitchen is going to fall through to
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. You've already made not worth one of those are Bresson's which is very widespread from New York. Even Southern Quebec all the way down into Florida and the Gulf states and has variations of geographical variations within. But just a darn good dependable plant for gardeners and then Hydrangea Chrissa fully. Which is more? Gulf state oriented a beautiful very distinctive. You know probably one of the most distinctive hydrogens in the entire family is is found in in the Gulf states and You know turn the breeders loose on these which they have with Gusto in the last ten to fifteen years in your ending up with these new pink varieties of our lessons and then all of these extraordinary forms of The Oakley Hydrangea. So far cry from what was available to me as a young lad when we had a Annabel that was about it. Now we have you know pink the pink forms bread by the Maestro of plant breeding. Tom Rainey at North Carolina. State University is really Extraordinary things expanding the breadth of ornament within that that one tax of
Kentucky coal miners end protest with paychecks
"In eastern Kentucky coal miners blocked a railroad track today in protest the miners worked for quest energy and they said they hadn't received pay since December twenty seventh the protest follows the example of a different group of Kentucky miners those miners staged a similar blockade for months last summer and eventually won back pay told Russell is one of the miners who protested today your stand up for yourself and and for for dressing as we got your money somehow you know and it worked for them so much I don't give a shot to see if we can get our money somehow Sydney bowls a reporter for the Ohio valley resource joins us from Kentucky where she's been covering that protests in Sydney I know you've reported that the protesters wrapped up did these miners get what they wanted they did they did we got word late this afternoon that the miners had received back pay in their bank accounts the miners are saying that they were concerned that if they hadn't locked the train they wouldn't have received that money but in kind of a complicated twist they're also saying that there are concerns that taking the stand will make it harder for them to find work in the future right because this is been a very high profile protests right and they feel like they got paid because of it absolutely minus that I spoke to were we're fairly certain that they wouldn't have received this pay if they hadn't locked that string how about the company Qwest energy what comments have they had on the situation so I received two statements from quest energy yesterday in the first statement they were very conciliatory they said they understood the miners frustration and they were doing everything they could to make sure the miners got paid but ID interestingly in response to some follow up questions that I sent them quest energies parent company American resources corporation sent me an additional statement that had a very different tone they were essentially planning the minors for not receiving pay saying that by blocking this train they were making it harder for for them to receive back pay so those were the comments from quest energy before since the blockade is ended have you heard from them I have not heard from them since then I want to talk about the blockade itself because it's the second in half a year what's going on with this industry and its workers right so coal mining in Appalachia production has been on the decline since the nineteen nineties but this is a really prolonged and extraordinary slump in order to combat the the declining share of coal in our nation's energy portfolio a lot of cool companies have been turning to metallurgical coal which is called it's used to make steel but recently we've seen that even that turn has not been enough to to bolster this this flagging industry we recently had some analysis showing that coal mining in Appalachia is expected to decline a further twenty percent by twenty twenty one and that means that things are not likely to turn around that's in the bowls a reporter for the Ohio valley resource covering the coal miner blockade in Pike County Kentucky that blockade has racked up anything so much

I've been teaching undergraduates about the role of the fossil fuel industry and Appalachia and the ways that it has damaged people's environments slightly hoods health. So when emily sadder white heard about the proposed pipeline. She was determined to help stop it. She's not just concerned about the local impacts. She says to reduce global carbon pollution. Virginia needs more renewable energy not fossil fuels. She says if the State's dependence on fossil fuels continues to grow oh the repercussions will be felt far far far from here with the rising sea levels and the extreme weather events and the droughts and the Okla instability that comes with all that satellite was arrested for her action she says as a privileged person with job security she can afford that kind of risk and then not everyone one should follow her specific example but she hopes to see more people demanding clean energy.

In Measure Overhauling Energy Policy, Ohio Pivots Away From Green Energy

LEARN MORE AT COMCAST BUSINESS DOT COM working to support wind and solar has become almost standard in states nationwide. Some are even phasing out coal but not Ohio. It recently passed a law doubling down subsidies for power plants. Ohio public radio's Andy Challe reports the new law adds hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies for coal and while it does add twenty million dollars for existing solar farms it rolls rolls back renewable energy requirements and even scraps the energy efficiency program it also does out one hundred fifty million dollars in subsidies to keep open open to nuclear plants that had been scheduled to close opposition to the legislation formed some strange partnerships natural gas companies. The environmental advocates and conservative activists all fought on the same side against what they saw as unnecessary bail out for power plants. It's like this one. The kayaker creek coal plant which sits along the Ohio River workers were eager to talk about the critical cool role. It plays in the region. Chad Burton says for his family. It means everything. My grandfather actually worked here for thirty six years. You know it's put food on my table.

That's the impression that we are giving them but for Republican State Representative Bill Sites. The cost of continuing the green energy requirements especially the efficiency officiency mandates were too high sites argues that mandates like those are less effective than the subsidies he voted for. We have mandated in the past. The utilities must make their electricity with this particular kind of fuel. I think that's stupid. Sites Defense Coal as a measure to support grid diversity and reliability other supporters say saving nuclear would mean saving Ohio's largest source of non-carbon-emitting energy and some environmental advocates agree ratepayers will see reduce charges because of road back investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency but they'll see increase fees to support court those nuclear and coal subsidies the average monthly bill will end up dropping by about two dollars a month supporters of green energy policies call that shortsighted headed and a bad investment other states are deciding to put more money toward green energy and innovation but the debate in Ohio is not over yet.

The Marshall Plan
"Couple of weeks ago we visited the george george c marshall foundation in lexington virginia and we are here. It's next to the campus of the virginia military institute. George marshall is this v._m. Is most prestigious alone ready darren. I'm ready. The foundation was really excited to have us and to be honest. We were pretty excited to reserved parking for mr result ski and mr woods anything's ever been resorted with my name on it. The building looks like an armory cement. Now a lot of frills like a police where you would wait out a nuclear winter or hide plutonium good morning good morning good morning. We all knew we were there to meet a guy named age poll baron. I grew up in houston texas and then after college marine corps and served for twenty four years. I was air controller and a helicopter pilot as anybody buddy told you you have a resemblance john mccain. I've heard that paul does kinda actually look like john mccain. He's wearing a navy-blue jacket with a pin. Tell me about that bad on your jacket foundation pin. It has five stars on it. Five star general marshall was a five star general polls.

What congress needs to do is pass. A marshall marshall plan to rebuild puerto rico make sure candidates are calling for marshall plan to fight climate change a marshall plan to improve national infrastructure structure forward a douglas plant and the reason we call it. A plan named after a person is not just in honor of frederick douglass to remind us of the marshall plan. That's buddha judge. He's calling for a marshall plan for racial equality and here's hillary clinton a few years back calling for one in appalachia. We have to have like the equivalent of a marshall plan. Bush called for juan obama. You get it and this isn't new. Actually there've been calls for more marshall plans since the original marshall plan which by the way began in nineteen forty eight that year someone called for a marshall plan for stray dogs and cats but no one is being really specific about what a marshall should plan actually means. It's just like this magic. Catch all never mind. The details will fix it term so those made us wonder what actually was the marshall through plan.

It's every manager's nightmare chimaera public mistake one so obvious factually inaccurate but there's just no hiding it. That's exactly what happened to the marketing department. At mountain dew the iconic connick soda brand owned by pepsico back in june. The brand launched a campaign called the do nited states intending to celebrate the uniqueness of all fifty states is it designed bottle specific to each state and promised prizes to soda drinkers who collected all fifty but it made one glaring geographical error over on one map. It mistakenly assigned ownership of the upper peninsula to wisconsin for the record. The upper peninsula belongs to michigan. That's the twenty six thousand thousand acres of land that separates lakes michigan and superior as fast company notes yeah. It's hardly a priority for most fortune five hundred companies but not surprisingly residents of the upper peninsula or the u._p. Is the call. The region were quite miffed. The guy who runs the u._p._s. twitter handle a man named bugsy sailor triple triple dog dared the brand to come out with a special upper peninsula branded mountain dew and to give a free case to every u._p. Resident well. We wouldn't be too surprised to find business schools using this case as an example of what to do when you're caught in a blender pepsico took bugsy sailor seriously asli that's right within a day mountain dew vice president of marketing nico- portwood got in touch with sailor assured him the brand would make a special upper peninsula salah bottle now. They needed suggestions for what to put on it. Portwood asked residents of the u._p. They're called uber's to tell pepsi co. What was special about the remote region then the brand designed new label and plastered on nine hundred six bottles of mountain dew gave the sodas away at the upper peninsula state fair where by the way they also gave the ninety thousand attendees chance to dunk mountain dew employees in a dunk tank talk about eating crow more seriously. The brand also redid digital t._v. commercials commercials giving the upper peninsula back to its rightful state on the map. What pepsico couldn't do was to sell the branded soda to come out with quickly one thing to navigate the tricky approval processes and regulations necessary to put it on store shelves well that would have taken too long portwood told fast company in the process mountain dew grew hundreds of thousands of new fans on social media mostly from the u._p. And got a boatload of publicity so what could have been an embarrassing flop turned into a refreshing win for a brand that unlike most sodas is still doing well rival coke as the country's most popular soda but surprisingly mountain dew is the fourth most popular soda in the country.

"appalachia" Discussed on Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio
"And then it has what's called milk dip, which is a warm milk sugar concoction that when you take the Sunkar out of the oven, you pour that over the top and it seeps into it. I expect that foodie heaven someday there will be an entire room that is just devoted to people loudly arguing about what's the difference between cobbler and Asanka a Betty and a crisp, and you know all the all the terms, if things that you can get three people at room and get five opinions. Right, exactly. So what's happening to Apalachee now is it, is it a million different stories? Is a going back to find its food ways and routes. Obviously you're involved with that and it's going to keep some of the past, or is it like most of the rest of America? We just keep moving into the future. Well, Appalachia, I won't say more than there are other regions, their contractors that value their past because of our storytelling history, which I was going to site is another reason why we name our beans because then we can tell you the story about it, and there's nothing we love better than a story unless it's eating and they're both kind of in the same realm. So Appalachians are young Appalachians are very keen to embrace their history and couple of things have changed in the economic landscape. There is the absence of coal which is, of course being argued about now. But at the time that I wrote, the book was perceived as a done deal. And in the wake of that communities are looking to establish smaller economies that are interlaced with one another and therefore sustainable. So food becomes a piece of that. You know, food becomes a piece of something that can be produced to be sold elsewhere. Can also feed you and your family. It becomes a gathering place for the people in the community. Food is a way to to create a tourism economy and farming can become a way to continue to stay on the land and continue that tradition. So we are, as we have always been in an interesting moment in Appalachia, and I just feel incredibly fortunate to get to ride around at my Chevy Astro and write about it. It's pretty fun. Ronnie. Thank you so much fascinating book, and it's just nice when someone takes time in the years in the hours to really to really do the research and find out what's actually going on Ronnie. Thank you so much, Chris. That was Ronni Lundy book is called vittles Appalachian journey with recipes. Growing up in Vermont, the locals had a keen sense of place.

The chat with editorial director, James Hirsch about this week's recipe pesto Geno visit, Jim. How are you? I'm doing great today. It's pesto day. It is and many of us in the food world have made it eighteen different ways over time, but it never is anything like what you get in Italy, and I always thought that was well. Okay.
