War of Words Between Royal Family, Harry and Meghan Heats Up

"In laws. Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, stepped back from their royal duties last year. Now she has given an interview to Oprah Winfrey on CBS that is critical of the royal family. I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us, and if that comes With risk of losing things. I mean, I've there's a lot that's been lost already by the firm. She means the royal family Now just is that interview was released. News reports have spread that the royal family was investigating accusations that Megan Bullied staff So let's talk about all this with the British historian Kate Williams. Welcome to the program. Hello? How serious these accusations these accusations of bullying? Well, they are. They came out just this week. They are saying that Meghan Woz You know, they're members of female members of staff and one of the words that was in the email that was given to our Times newspaper was the duchess or has to have someone in her sights. And of course, many people have said, Why have they come out now? Why all of a sudden just for Meghan how he gifted open to see which I think that the present time it's being sold in 68 countries and parenting is going to be it would be a huge interview is gonna be all over the world and this is the Last time, which Meghan Holly, I really think speak. We believe about why they left your family about what life was like in the royal family because they haven't really said much over the person say less than or step back from the war family. But I think finally, many people also say, Well, Meghan suffered very It's a bassist treatment at the hands off the British press what other female world were congratulated for whether it was See avocados or touching their baby, but everything a magazine that was all fine when it was other funerals. Yeah, and you've just by going through that have by going through that You've reminded us how much pressure the royal family has faced in recent years, and how much criticism the royal family has faced in recent years. And some of that criticism Woz over the fact that Meghan Markle identifies is mixed race. And was widely seen as not being fully accepted by the royal family. For that reason, is the real evidence of that, though That I mean, just with undeniable evidence, which she was the vet him off bassist press, she said. So she could. Harry has said. It's obvious when you compare the stories. Example, old boils or world in the Crown properties, and they are renovating for millions of Crown money. No one ever cared before. When they get in How we move into Frogmore Cottage. Britain has some kind of national meltdown over the fact that they had 2.4 million minutes. Money, spending it on The fact is that you know what? Simply how he was putting out these desperate statements trying to defend Meghan trying to say, you know, you know, it was going down the same road as my mother. Please stop. We don't know what you're going to say about the wider war family on on the sun on Sunday night's interview, she may weigh no, she didn't talk about racism in Britain. We know she's been talking about the press. If you can't talk about the royal family issue, going to talk about the men in gray suits that Princess Diana cord and the courtiers, this is all about that, at the moment, if she does, that's much more wide ranging if she says it wasn't just suppressed. What? Unfair to me, but also the war family who, in fact to me, then that I think is a very significant intervention. And that will that will really impact on perceptions of all family. Kate Williams. Thanks for the time really appreciate it. Hmm.

European Scientists Create First Light-Up Tattoos For You and Your Avocado

"A team of scientists in europe have created what they say is the first light emitting tattoo using oh led based technology which is like the kind used in newer televisions and smartphones especially the folding kind. And well of course. This sounds totally awesome. If a bit frightening the team mostly propose practical uses like alerting an athlete when they're dehydrated or indicating when someone should get out of the sun to avoid getting a sunburn and tattoos for medical use are not unprecedented. I know a couple of people who have replaced their medical bracelets for conditions like diabetes with permanent tattoos on their wrists and radiation therapy often tattoos. Small black on cancer patients skin to use as reference marks for the machines and a handful of in the us tattooed kids with their blood types. During the cold war thinking it could facilitate blood transfusions in the case of a nuclear attack. And that's a real thing that happened. I'll put a link in the show notes if you want to read more about it and sort of grim as that sounds to our modern ears. There are still proposals around to people including children with their medical information. A team from rice university. A couple years ago developed fluorescent quantum dot tattoos that would only be visible through a custom smartphone app. At which time they would show a person's vaccination history something particularly crucial in hard hit rural areas. Where people sometimes don't have paper or digital vaccination records then no one's actually a pretty good idea even if it sounds a little big brother that the offset and unfortunately because of that. It's gotten pulled into a lot of covid nineteen vaccine conspiracy theories even though it's a tattoo not in any way an implant a microchip and not in any way related to the covid nineteen vaccines. It's being cited by conspiracy theorists as evidence that the covid nineteen vaccines are implanting tracking microchips into people. It doesn't help that. The original study was proposed by the bill and melinda gates foundation a lot of conspiracy theorists love to say that bill gates engineered the corona virus. Or something. I only bring all of that up in case you hear about it in relation to this vaccine history. Quantum dot tattoo study. So now you can. Debunk anyone spouting that false claim but anyways back to the light up. Oled tattoos in addition to some practical wellness related uses. The team also expects that they could be used for fashion purposes. Like having a light up tattoo or even fingernails and they could even go beyond humans to be used on produce. The tattoos could go on packaging or on the fruit or vegetable itself to identify when it's gone bad now. If you're imagining how impractical it would be to take a tattoo gun to a tomato. I should clarify that. These tattoos are applied more like a temporary tattoo is quoting university. College london the oled's are fabricated onto temporary tattoo paper and transferred to a new surface by being pressed onto it and dab with water and quotes now as gizmodo notes. Quote the idea of personally augmenting. One skin with glowing. Art isn't new either. But previously this has involved bio hackers implanting technologies like led's beneath the skin and the results don't have much practical use besides attention grabbing or inviting questions about why someone would do that to themselves. This new approach to light emitting. Tattoos is easier to apply more practical and temporary without requiring surgery to have it removed and quotes. So how does this one work well. The flexibility of the oled display is key so that it can move and bend along with the human or fruit skin beyond that quoting again from gizmodo. The electronics of the light emitting tattoos made from an extremely thin layer of electro luminescent polymer that glows when a charges applied measure in at just two point three micrometres thick which according to the researchers is about one third the diameter. A red blood cell. The polymer layer is then sandwiched between a pair of electrodes and sits atop insulating layer which is bonded to temporary tattoo paper printing process. That isn't prohibitively expensive. The tattoos can be easily washed off when no longer needed or wanted using soap and water with a current applied the led tattoos in their current form simply glue green but eventually could produce any color using the same rgb approach that oled screens. Us and quote won't professor franken says saline lead author on the study notes that they've demonstrated a proof of concept that d- tattoos can be made cheaply and at scale. There's still a number of kinks to work out. Like normal temporary tattoos these ones degrade pretty quickly especially when more on a moving human and they still need figure out how to integrate them with a battery or super capacitor in the lab. They're currently hooked up to an external power source so oily tattoos might not become into the public too quickly but the technology is there and it will probably happen before

Do Produce-Saver Products Really Keep Food Fresh Longer?

"My friend gary rights. I've been seeing ads for products that claim to absorb ethylene which allows produce to last longer to these products. Work would baking soda or activated charcoal. Do the same thing. I think we've all had the disheartening experience of having to throw away expensive fruits and vegetables because we didn't use them up quickly enough. No one likes to waste money of course but there's even more at stake with food waste we throw away. Shocking percentage of the food that we produce which is especially tragic when you consider how many people around the world experience hunger on a daily basis hunger and food. Insecurity is not just an issue in developing nations here in the united states the richest nation in the world within ten percent of households typically struggle to put food on the table and that number has increased by sixty six percent just since the beginning of the covid nineteen pandemic right now. Fifty million americans including seventeen million children do not have enough to eat on a regular basis. No matter where you live if you are lucky enough as i have been to have weathered this year long crisis without worrying about whether you'd be able to feed yourself and your family. Perhaps you will join me in donating to your local food bank or an organization like feeding america dot org. And if you or someone you know is experiencing hunger or food insecurity. You don't have to go it alone if you are in the. Us feeding america dot org can help. Connect you with resources in your area. Food waste is also a major player in climate change. Rotting food is responsible for almost ten percent of greenhouse gas emissions globally. In fact if oud waste were country it would come in third after the united states and china in terms of impact on global warming and fresh produce about a third of all the food that we throw away all of which is to say if a ten dollar product can keep us from throwing away so much food it would be money well spent and i'm happy to report that there is some solid science to support them but their usefulness maybe just a bit more targeted than the marketing sometimes suggests ethylene is a harmless gas. That's released or exhaled if you will buy fruits and vegetables. In general ethylene. Production increases as fruits ripen. And turn accelerates the ripening process so when we put unripe fruit in paper bag the idea is to trap some of that ethylene. That's being given off by the produce and use it to hasten the ripening process this works especially well for apricots bananas mangoes tomatoes avocados and melons. They're all particularly sensitive to ethylene gas. But once fruit is ripe continued exposure to ethylene can cause the fruit to become overripe and start to rot. Ethylene can also speed the decline of other types of produce according to horticultural scientist kathleen brown of penn state university at the lean can cause carrots and parsnips to get bitter broccoli and kale to turn yellow cucumbers and summer squash to get soft and mushy asparagus to turn tough apples to get mealie and lettuce to wilt herbs such as parsley and mint are also particularly sensitive to ethylene gas now low temperatures across the board reduce plants sensitivity to at the lane so just keeping produce refrigerated will help to preserve it for example if your avocados get ripe before you need them. You can hold them for a few days by putting them in the fridge. I find it most effective to move them into the fridge when they're still maybe a day short of fully ripe because some ripening will continue in the fridge but it goes much more slowly in addition you can use something to absorb ethylene gas. Today's episode supported by hair food. Hair food believes in feeding your hair like you. Feed your body with simple clean and nourishing ingredients it. Produces the softest and silk strands. You can imagine hair. Food offers different collections for every hair type and feature like the nourishing collection infused with the essences of coconut milk and chai spice for soft and healthy strands. It nourishes while it cleanses leaving your hair silky smooth and you won't believe how good it smells. It's like a warm mug of coconut milk. Chai plus haircut is always free of sulfates parabens dyes and mineral oils. I know i always appreciate products. That do a great job in smell. Good while they're doing it. So if you wanna feed your hair. Delicious nourishing ingredients feed it hair food. All their products are under ten dollars. And you can find them at amazon walmart and zeolite is a complex of minerals including aluminum and silica. That's highly absorbent. It's used as drying agent to suck moisture out of the air. This is also the stuff that makes clumping cat litter work but it also absorbs ethylene. Gas zero lights are widely used by food growers shippers and retailers to extend the life of fruits and vegetables in transit by slowing down the ripening process produce saving products that you may have seen in the consumer marketplace such as the green produce bags or the hollow ball. That you place in the crisper drawer of your fridge contain zeolite. And they are effective at absorbing lean and they can prevent types of spoilage. The bags are reusable but they do eventually lose their effectiveness. You can also buy a rechargeable zeolite filled ball to place in your crisper drawer to absorb ethylene gas now. Gary also asked whether baking soda or activated charcoal might be effective at absorbing ethylene. I can't find any data to suggest that baking soda would be particularly useful here. Activated charcoal can absorb but not nearly as effectively as zeolite. Interestingly that rechargeable ball. it's called the blue. Apple contains both zeolite and activated charcoal but the manufacturer only talks about charcoal in their marketing. I wonder if they think that charcoal sounds more natural and therefore would be more appealing to consumers than something unfamiliar like zeolite but in terms of absorbing ethylene gas. I suspect it's the zeolite that's actually doing. The heavy lifting their the chuckle may also have some odor absorbing properties. Keeping your produce in special ethylene absorbing bags may indeed extend the shelf life. Keeping high at the lean producers particularly apples and avocados quarantined from your other produce can also help just remember that ethylene is only one thing that can shorten the life of your produce and ethylene absorbing bag isn't gonna prevent moldy berries or slimy lettuce for example. The best way to keep fruits and vegetables from going bad and going to waste is really to eat them up

"If you're worried that you have gained or are gaining way during the stressful time. We're definitely so stressful brittany with this pandemic and the ongoing at home and working from home and you're not the only one i'm hearing it more and more in clinic in fact a survey of eight thousand. Us adults published in the journal of obesity. Found at least a third of adults in the us reported. The corona virus pandemic has led to dramatic changes in their good health habits. Today we want to talk about some of these behaviors and ways that you can avoid weight gain during the pandemic or during any other highly stressful time in your life. Now that you know what we're going to be discussing this morning. I want to myself and our co host. I'm melanie beasley and have been a registered dietitian for the past thirty years one of the joys of my life is sharing the benefits of eating real food with as many of you as possible. I can speak to the benefits of eating real food both professionally and of course personally as well if you read my bio on weight and wellness dot com. You'll see that. I've had some very serious health problems over the years myself. So i truly know the value of eating real food for my own health at nutritional weight and wellness. We all believe health is so much more than the number on the scale does so true. It's so much more we have to feel good. You have to feel good. Everywhere had shoulders knees and totally. It's sad to say but is true. That many people just focus on their weight and now their overall health. Well i know that for me for years and years. This was really important. So i was always looking at what was the scale. What was on the scale now. What was going on internally. Well joining me this morning as you can hear. A voice is brittany. Vincent who's also a registered dietitian britney. You also have had some health problems that went away when you switch eating real food. Yes very transformative. I understand so share with us. Some of your pass health struggles with the listeners and how you overcame them well good morning everybody. You know I was in my early twenties and after finishing while towards the tail end. Finishing school to become a dietitian started having insomnia migraines. I was really tired. i will never forget. I was at a bar with a group of friends. And i like conked out in the in the booth because i was so tired. Oh no and i. It was not from partying. It was just ringing so tired. Exactly as like oh i know. That's when there's something going on. And i always say i saw the light finally an eating real food. I was looking at what i was eating and it was really just processed low fat. I mean everything that i was taught in two and so i made an overhaul of eating more fats Real vegetables purchasing better quality foods and then all of a sudden. My energy got better. I was sleeping better Eliminated gluten as well. My magazines basically disappeared and hers. Feeling great feeling as you should as a young adult and i think that a huge huge Switch that. I made was really the fat really because i was not eating those healthy fats. So making sure and getting that tablespoon of butter or olive oil avocado oil. Some not some avocado. I think really made made a huge difference for me. Plus just tastes delicious. Oh right so much. Easier to eat your veggies with some delicious fat on it and you know i think that For everybody listening that you can definitely be touched in many different ways of just changing changing your diet. Some just curious did you have anxiety that is sort of resolved. I did not do not while the insomnia would be racing thoughts but other than that. No no no. But i'm happy. That's that's over. That is not fun So you know. Understanding the science of nutrition to help to solve a personal problem is so powerful. I think that Experiencing these things ourselves just allows us to better help. Our clients visits us mercy and compassion for everyone who's walking through door or through zoom. Yeah right so you know britney when you were talking about that. I got to thinking. Let's discuss getting back to our topic. We're discussing ways to avoid weight gain during stressful times and certainly living in the midst of the pandemic has its own unique and unpredictable. Stressors right but many of us have had other times in our lives that we have also had highly stressful times so when i was going through cancer and treatments and all surgeries. I was stressed and my family was stressed. In lots of scenarios we can have tremendous stress. I think the most important thing that we can learn during these stressful times is how we manage our stress so true that we have some. We can develop some tools today. We wanna focus not on the stress but on how how each of us can increase our stress management skills. I want us all to focus on the foods and behaviors that increase our stress management skills. The first step is to to see that we have the ability to improve our bodies ma- how it manages that stress. Think of it as adding some tools to your tool box that you can pull from that. You have some control in how your body manages stress. Yeah and i hear that from clients who really are dedicated to eating real food throughout a stressful time and they comment. I am handling this a lot better than i. otherwise would be. It really is about chemistry. And i know people's character. It is in our survey reported in the journal of obesity included peop- people from different counties but also from different states in the in the us in the study found that the corona virus pandemic for many adults has led to a major decrease in their healthy habits and that they had that they had practiced prior to the pandemic and the study found two thirds of people eight more junk food well only a third eight healthier meals cooked at home again about two-thirds exercise less because gyms were closed but many rescue dogs and consistently walked their new dock. Some have more anxiety slept less where others were able to sleep longer to to less commuting time some people viewed the pandemic as a time to cook more healthy meals at home sleep longer also to have time for a pet. The sussex study also broke down the results by the different bmi classification such as normal weight overweight and obese ir that study in the study i noted to the study found the stay at home. Order had the most negative impact on the individuals in the obese category actually found. They found the anxiety. Scores increased most dramatically in people with obesity. The people with obesity also gained the most weight during the stay at home order so from results of the study. There are many different questions we could ask now number one do people of normal weight. In general practice better healthy habits for number two d normal weight people have fewer cravings. Find it easier to maintain a healthier eating plan number three to overweight and obese. People have more stress in their lives. Very good questions. Yeah do you have the answers necessarily but we're gonna talk. We're gonna right so to answer some of those questions. We want to share some basic lifestyle and eating habits to help you avoid weight gain during stressful times. Because i am seeing in clinic. I do see clients who've gained weight who've had a weight problems stressful and if it's a chemical chemical process and perhaps another way to live at this time is to find ways you can increase your stress management skills those tools in your toolbox that may be a new thought for you and yes you can learn and practice certain tricks to manage your stress whether it's during the pandemic or taken high school or college exam whether you're going through health crisis and i think time to dig into a demystify these tricks and the first trick to come out of the magical hat is eat breakfast every day. Not a sundays days. Breakfast is in spat especially important if you have stressful meeting or Chemistry exam or presentation or you studied all night absolutely. We're going to get back to eating breakfast but we have to take a break. I you are listening to dishing up nutrition and we are discussing how you can avoid weight gain during stressful. Times will be right back. Welcome back for dishing other for many of our clients. Tell us they need healthy new snack ideas so we decided to share a couple with you today. Make an egg. Salad with celery and expel or pressed. Safflower may or avocado mail. Then place a scoop of the egg salad and a half of a red pepper love I love deviled eggs as well. So my favorite is our salmon patty recipe that's in the weight and wellness way. Cookbook and nutrition guide. It's also on our website weight and wellness dot com ad and variety of raw vegetables. The vegetables to and you can Dip in some mayo at that. And then you've got this nice balanced out snacks so stay tuned and we will give you additional snack. Ideas have to say i love that I never tried it until pre pandemic one of our front desk staff gals was eating it. And i thought oh. I want to try this and she goes. Oh get a fork. I tried it. I was like it so delicious but when looking at the ingredients. I thought me when i wanted to make now i make it. You just plop it. Cook it and then take those patties and freeze them. They freeze great. Yeah so easy. It's awesome so stay tuned because we're going to have more of these ideas we are and i think it's time to dig into and demystify these tricks that we have the first trick to come out of the magical hat was eat breakfast every day. So fringy have for breakfast. I had leftover hamburger patty at six thirty. This morning did in samantha's and For something quick. I had part of an apple. Yeah wonderful e you got a gun. It wasn't gone. My husband always makes a eggs for me. He always gets up. When i have the radio show and So a couple eggs. And i also do half of an apple with sunbutter easy. Yeah got it done early in the morning forest feeling good for the radio show feeling over the radio show and you don't take out your energy you know and i always tell my clients breakfast really Tone for the day. You are going to feel better having a balanced breakfast. And then you're naturally going to make healthier choices because you're starting the day with a balanced blood sugar. It really makes the world of difference. And i the key to that balanced blood sugars like i had the eggs the protein and you had the hamburger patty protein and that kind of anchors not only your blood sugar but also begins the process of making those rain chemicals. The neural transmitters us that helps us with our day. Yeah yeah. I have absolutely recognized. I need enough protein in the morning just to feel good the entire day so i need at least three ounces. Good to to get me started. And i think that you know. A lot of people aren't in the habit of taking the time to make breakfast Your after something easy so you might sit down. Pour your favorite dry cereal in a bowl until the bolas fall. Always you know not a cup of cereal. Several cups of syria but that may be inviting obesity earnings -iety to come visit. There's been many studies. Demonstrating that high carb. High sugar diets often lead to anxiety and obesity. So what could be happening when you eat a big bowl of breakfast cereal which could easily have eighty one grams of carbs. When you consider how high carb that is in how high sugar foods affect your brain chemistry. It's very likely this unhealthy breakfast is causing a reduction in your serotonin. Level and serotonin is one of our. Most important are transmitters. You can think of neurotransmitters feel brain chemicals and serotonin helps to make us happy calm. Less anxious more focused all things that we that we need right. If you could just have a cup of serotonin But the next step we can just buy a coupla. Serotonin is that protein xactly so importantly we know a diet. High in processed carbs raise blood sugar level above normal and then the pancreas produces excess. Insulin leading to people being overweight or obese So when we say process carbs pathetic of the foods that come from a factory versus a farm Cereal is one. there is no serial bush. No there's not another interesting fact. Is obesity associated with having more anxiety one study found at the obesity. People have a twenty five percent increased risk of suffering from mood and anxiety disorders. Additionally chronic stress can also increase the fat stored in the abdominal area. And around our organs it is also an increased risk for type two diabetes heart attacks. High blood pressure so many risk factors we want our clients to avoid absolutely. And that's often a question i ask A new client. If weight loss's one of their goals asking them whereas there where they have gained weight where they're storing it can indicate to us. Hormonally what could be going on. And i'm sure you can agree. But i'm hearing more and more. People are starring in their abdomen that stress. And then also you know. Eating more processed carbs increases insulin resistance so can really be twofold mentioned earlier. We talked about if you have that bullet cereal and maybe skim milk. Possibly sugar sprinkled on. Tom It raises that blood sugar. And when your blood sugar goes higher than the body once it to It really is a stressful event entirely. Yup and when we have that stressful event internally we're increasing our stress levels yep so that's a simple tool really it is and you know. Our body doesn't know the difference between that stressor of eating cereal or the stress from covid. No good point. We respond to it the same way So keeping that in mind and again we have control of everything. We're putting in her mouth. So if that can impact stress that much We really need to take control of that is that is to have control over few things and that is one of i

Should we re-think who gets the vaccine first?

Should we re-think who gets the vaccine first?

"So the vaccines are coming as we keep saying and we keep hearing but one of the big discussion points. This week is who should get it first. So we've talked about this before we've talked about high risk groups like elderly people. 'cause they're at high risk of severe disease being at the front of the queue and healthcare workers because they have a high likelihood of both catching it and also spreading it. The obvious ones but there's been arguments that teachers should be given priority treatment and supermarket workers because they are frontline workers. And maybe we should also consider giving it to people who work in quarantine hotels transport because they've been spread as in the past when we have a limited supply of the vaccine. Straight up. norman. Who should be at the front of that queue. It's hard to argue with the priorities. The federal government's put out and in fact hotel quarantine workers boorda workers people dealing with people come from overseas drivers. They are actually at the front of the queue and they need to be because they are our first line of defense and they're also the most vulnerable so they need to be protected and if the vaccines dupe prevent transmission they will also be a ring of defense so that they will kind of if they do get infected they will resist infection not spread it into the community so they are very much early recipients of the vaccine the vaccine healthcare workers are hard to argue with particularly in aged care as our feel elderly care because they are extremely vulnerable to serious illness. So again it's hard to argue with that you've really gotta go for care and protection and saving lives and saving severe disease as your first priority and also if possible preventing transmission the community and remember h. Care has been a transmission point as well once it gets into each care. And they've been focused of clusters so then. The debate is a perfectly reasonable one who dealing with say young kids teachers and others of the front lines such as supermarket workers. You can argue that too on the basis of protection now. There is another argument here. Once you've covered the people who are most vulnerable whether in fact by then you'll know more about reduce transmission and whether you should switch tack because in fact if you really wanna reduce transmission in the community you need to immunize people who are at most risk of infection and those are not the elderly. The people who are at risk of infection are the younger people in the community because they know my bow their more mobile how they're out there the socially mixing and so you'd head off for people aged over eighteen and under sixty five and they might become your higher priority because if they are protected from infection they will van protect the people and that's true hair immunity.

Should we re-think who gets the vaccine first?

"So the vaccines are coming as we keep saying and we keep hearing but one of the big discussion points. This week is who should get it first. So we've talked about this before we've talked about high risk groups like elderly people. 'cause they're at high risk of severe disease being at the front of the queue and healthcare workers because they have a high likelihood of both catching it and also spreading it. The obvious ones but there's been arguments that teachers should be given priority treatment and supermarket workers because they are frontline workers. And maybe we should also consider giving it to people who work in quarantine hotels transport because they've been spread as in the past when we have a limited supply of the vaccine. Straight up. norman. Who should be at the front of that queue. It's hard to argue with the priorities. The federal government's put out and in fact hotel quarantine workers boorda workers people dealing with people come from overseas drivers. They are actually at the front of the queue and they need to be because they are our first line of defense and they're also the most vulnerable so they need to be protected and if the vaccines dupe prevent transmission they will also be a ring of defense so that they will kind of if they do get infected they will resist infection not spread it into the community so they are very much early recipients of the vaccine the vaccine healthcare workers are hard to argue with particularly in aged care as our feel elderly care because they are extremely vulnerable to serious illness. So again it's hard to argue with that you've really gotta go for care and protection and saving lives and saving severe disease as your first priority and also if possible preventing transmission the community and remember h. Care has been a transmission point as well once it gets into each care. And they've been focused of clusters so then. The debate is a perfectly reasonable one who dealing with say young kids teachers and others of the front lines such as supermarket workers. You can argue that too on the basis of protection now. There is another argument here. Once you've covered the people who are most vulnerable whether in fact by then you'll know more about reduce transmission and whether you should switch tack because in fact if you really wanna reduce transmission in the community you need to immunize people who are at most risk of infection and those are not the elderly. The people who are at risk of infection are the younger people in the community because they know my bow their more mobile how they're out there the socially mixing and so you'd head off for people aged over eighteen and under sixty five and they might become your higher priority because if they are protected from infection they will van protect the people and that's true hair immunity. And then you away at that so that would require a bit of a radical change in approach and an assumption that you're reducing transmission but it should be more information coming in from the towns of moves. People who've been immunized overseas is already some evidence from israel reduce transmission but again in israel. The haven't yet moved into those age groups so you can't really tell but by the time we get there we might be in a position to say let's pivot and will actually go really go hell for leather for young people so we know that in australia with getting two different types of vaccine mckenna smallest supply of the fayza shot and then a lot of the oxford astrazeneca shot which has been a source of debate in australia.

New York gives more groups eligibility to COVID-19 vaccine

"New York state has been expanding the types of people eligible for covert vaccines. Now, those who work in just about any health care setting can get there first shots as long as they see patients in person. W When my sees Fred mogul went toe one vaccination hub that just began inoculating staff members from doctor's offices throughout the metro area, Elizabeth Villarosa was a little surprised to find herself. Waiting on the line to be vaccinated are what's refusing 100% to take a look see? Delarosa, who's a receptionist at a pediatrician's office in Washington Heights, says the doctor she works for changed her mind by explaining they're not actually injecting virus into her arm. Something made in the lab to produce the proteins If you get over Iris, and they're gonna help. So Delarosa figures getting Cove It would be way worse than any side effects she might get from the vaccine. I feel confident that everything is going to be okay. She and around 300 people are vaccine yesterday and Dr Urgent Medical Center and Inwood. They're all part of this Almost network, which serves low income minority neighborhoods around the region. Governor Cuomo is expanding vaccine eligibility to medical practices like these, in part because the larger institutions have been working through their allotted vaccine doses so slowly I could see between 30 to 40 patients birthday It gets very crazy very fast. That's Dr Yamada's Pina was a small practice in Washington Heights. She spent much of the last 10 months on the front lines not only with her own patients but helping out coronavirus testing centers in New York, Texas and Florida. Painting was very excited to get the vaccine. But also very nervous. You're talking to one of the world's allergic people in the world opinion is allergic to pork, avocado, barley and latex. And people with allergies are slightly more likely to suffer side effects from the vaccine. When she initially went into the exam room for her injection, her blood pressure went through the roof, so she drank lots of fluids. And after a half hour of relaxing She felt well enough to get the shock wave did. It'll be several weeks at the soonest before pain, you will be able to administer the vaccine in her office to patients, but she wants to start spreading the gospel. Now the Latino patients believe in their doctors, right, So I want them to see that I got it first, so they could trust it, but it would be easier said than done. Of hospitals experience inoculating their workforce is any guide. But paying is hopeful that by the time the vaccine is available to the general public, there will be enough role models like her. That others will be waiting to get it. Fred Mogul w N Y C news

Y roku would do this. A there wasn't really anything in quincy that was That great unless they're gonna get it at fire sale prices. That's only possibility but even at fire sale prices roku isn't a phone platform. Nobody uses roku on their phones. So why would the continent was yeah. It's all gone right right. Yeah yeah it. The whole thing doesn't make any sense at all if rocca really wants to get in and start taking on the big streaming players that are like their bread and butter. That seems a little bit risky. I agree with the risk here. But this is certainly not the content. Roka's kinda wanna go after for that.

The workers say they had to swat and stop on the rodents to keep them away. They also say they saw a rat to marks on avocados. Employees say they started reporting the problem in October, but the company didn't act until weeks later, after one crew member and the locations general manager were bitten in late November.

So i'm going to give you both here both at take a total of ten minutes of your precious time the first episode kind of blew my mind about guacamole. I learned that when you eat something like celery it's much healthier to eat. It was guacamole.

The Low Down On Houseplant Fertilizers

The Low Down On Houseplant Fertilizers

"We're going to start off with a true or false and that is you need to have a special fertilizer for every type of indoor plant that you grow so ellen what say you do. We need african violet food. Do we need orchid food. Do we need foliage plant food. I want to just be flip about it and say no next question but there are some times when a special fertilizer is useful but i will also say that you do not need an african violet food and an orchid food. You can use the same one. I will not name the company. But i will say i was once on a press junket in florida out of factory where different house plant. Fertilizers were being made. And guess what. The same fertilizer went into the african violet. Food bag that went into the orchid food bag because both of those foods are basically intended for promoting bloom in your house plants and it didn't matter if it was an african violet or an oregon and that company that you visited is not alone many fertilizer companies make a formulation that's appropriate for many different plants. And then they put it in a bag. That has the picture of a particular type of plant and that same formulation goes into another bag with another picture. So it's you know it's kinda the american way and people need to know that sometimes it is not necessary to have that special food for a particular plant. What i do think is necessary. Is that people not only think about the amount of fertilizer that they are giving plants right that they think about whether the fertilizer that they are using is a synthetic or inorganic fertilizer and how the plant might respond in indoors. And the reason. I'm mentioning that is first of all many people want to use organic so they'll you sprinkle a granular organic on the surface of their house. Plant and about two weeks later. They see mold growing on the surface and they should know that. This isn't really a problem but it freaks people out sometimes but it's an organic matter that they've put on and they're keeping it moist. So that's what happens to organic matter when it stays moi's did it breaks down and the fungus that's breaking that down is what's making it usable to the plant and i think another thing to think about it in addition to what kind of fertilizer you're using is when you're using it. You're gonna read on the fertilizer packages that you should be using it every time you water your plant will please remember where that advice is coming from. Just coming from the people who want to sell you. Fertilizer and i would never fertilize my plants every time my water. I think that's way overdoing it. I agree with that and you are correct. Think about when and think about whether the plant is thirsty if you are using a synthetic fertilizer you really don't want to use a synthetic fertilizer on a thirsty plant. So if you routinely let your your house plants dry up a little bit inbetween watering by all means you want to water that plant. I let it get well hydrated and then apply the fertilizer and not too strong a concentration. Well that brings up two interesting points. First of all yes. I i would always mix my fertilizer at half the strength. That's recommended on the the bag or the jar. But let's talk a little bit about why. You should not fertilize thirsty plants because this might be something that people don't know But if you do fertilize a thirsty plant or plant with a dry root system. You run the risk of that fertilizer. Actually we call it. Burning the roots now. Of course they're not going to be set on fire but but it does a nice for the routes it can stress them it can destroy them it can kill them. Does the salt in the in the in the fertilizer instead of the root pulling up the water at it's pulling up salt too and if the root is dry then that can kill the the cells and you sometimes see it as root damage and you can also see it as brown edges on. The leaves are typical sign of fertilizer. Burn as well because when the roots die and can no longer do their job. They can't keep the foliage hydrated the way they're supposed to and that's why you see the the browning on the leave so bear that in mind. I think seals advice about make sure your plant is well hydrated before you apply fertilizer. That's a really good one

What is Citric Acid, and Is It Safe?

Diet Science

06:00 min | 6 months ago

What is Citric Acid, and Is It Safe?

"Of this week this week. We're talking about a food. Ingredient called citric acid off. Remember that in gradient labels citric acid. Yes yeah we see it all in a lot of different food products and people ask you know. Is this safe. You know in what is it. Actually where does it come from. That's a good question. Yeah so citric. Acid is found naturally in citrus fruit. So that's kind of how it gets. Its name and its the particular type of acid that we typically find in a lemons and limes and it's what gives them their tart sour taste. So you would think that okay cool you know that's from its. It's natural is from lemons and limes right But unfortunately that's usually not the type of citric acid. That's in your food products because it would take a lot of lemons and limes to be able to get enough citric acid to be used in the food processing industry so the in in and around The nineteen fifties. It was discovered that it could be made from a A black mold called aspergillus. Djilas niger in when you feed sugar to this mold it creates citric acid of black mold. Not your house exactly. Well you'd be surprised. How many molds are used in the you know to create ingredients they. I'm not sure if i wanted to probably don't wanna know but this is this is how it's made so it's it's actually a odorless colorless compound And up until the nineteen hundreds. We got it from lemon juice but then researchers found that they could make it from this black mold so that is the type that is used in all the food products basically a synthetic manufactured form of the citric acid. So so what are some of. I mean some of the properties of it it. It gives sign of that sour tasting You know flavor to certain things and it's also a preservative. Zoe think about a lemons and limes the citric acid and lemons and limes. You know how when you put If you have a cut open apple if you put some lemon juice on or if you have an avocado you squeeze on some lime juice and that helps protect it from browning right so it has a preservation property to it stops free radicals from you know oxygen stops oxidation so obviously the the symbol of of making it not making it but what it looks like as a molecule citric acid is citric acid citric. Acid right yes. The molecule is the same. Yes so whether it is found naturally in a lemon or whether it's produced through a chemical reaction by combining a black mold was sugar. The end product is this molecule citric acid. Yeah and so. There's a little bit of debate in the natural food world about whether citric acid is safe or not in foods and so. I just wanted to touch on that here. We one is the there haven't been any like actual clinical studies showing that there's any kind of negative impact from citric acid in terms of like negative impact on the body However because it's made from a mold there may be traces of mold in it in like you know and we have to think about well. How much of it is actually being used in the product and how much mold might you know. If there's a trace amounts of mold in that small quantity of citric acid. How much of that is going to actually ended up in the food and will it really have an impact. So they do. We do know that. Some people are super sensitive to molds may have a reaction to it so like if people have food allergies or sensitivities. That might be one of the things. They need to avoid So you know that would be something and if if you get a really good food sensitivity tests that might even show up on a food sensitivity tests citric acid so but i think for the for the general population. That's something that may not necessarily be a problem but of course now there's other considerations the the sugar that's used in this reaction with the mold home is usually from a gmo. Beat oh so now. We're introducing g. m. o. citric acid into a product right. So you know so if that's something also you're trying to avoid gmo's that that would be something to keep on your radar about reading an ingredient list. It's ten it's going to be a gmo Created unless it says. It isn't so you you. You're looking at a product if the product itself says it's a non gmo verified Product than it wouldn't be from that you know they'd be using if they're using citric acid in the product they might be using it from an organic source of sugar so there are different. You know within the food industry there's different levels of quality that you can get with these things so but citric acid in the body. I mean actually has benefits has some impressive benefits and functions so It it creates something called with a once. You consume it. It creates something citrate which is the first molecule that forms during the process in the body called the citric acid cycle. Which basically is the cycle that when know when you consume carbohydrates your body converts those into energy within your cells so that that molecule of glucose which is basically your sugar from your carbohydrates it goes through this whole cycle within your cells called the citric acid cycle and then it turns that sugar into atp energy for every single one of cells so he citric acid is involved that and we need it in our diet who

Or could it be honoring one of the greatest land air battles of all time went to bias the mole attack tiny town in Rocketeer George Michael saved the day on arrested development. Now. I know Netflix puts it Tada on everything but did they also put their stamp on National Day? I look forward to you sending me straight Paul. I Fan true according to the Internet malls in groundhogs are often lumped together in discussions regarding wildlife problems that result in turn up damaged landscaping. This is because they both utilized tunnel systems and caused damage to plants, roots, and beautiful lawns but that is where the similarity ends, but I severely digress. Today. October twenty third is national. Mall Day which has nothing to do with furry creatures. Today's all about chemistry specifically avocados number, which is the number of particles in one mole of substance the numbers approximately six point zero, two times ten to the twenty third. Get it ten, twenty, three. If you WANNA learn how to celebrate this day. Look no further than the lab out loud podcast were in one episode they discuss mold day and how they have celebrated it. You could also research Amadeo Gaudreau and put out a social media post using the National Mall. Day, Hashtag. My guest today is Andrew. Geary. Andrew is the host of the seismic sound all podcast now prepare yourself for a second seismic sound off episodes our in depth conversations in applied geophysics intimidated yet. Luckily, for you, I asked Andrew. Where someone like me who try to cheat his way through high school science classes could start. He wrote back the following and I quote our episodes tend to range from various associations, specific highlighting our annual conference to broad scientific subjects, addressing racism and geosciences. But the best place generally to start is our episodes focused on humanitarian projects we manage here is one looking at building a canal Peru that's a good start. Unquote.

We know that one of the things that's going to be on the ballot this election season is criminal justice reform and we think about criminal justice reform. We really don't think about all the ways all offices where we vote for people and they have an impact, and today we're going to be speaking to two women in elected office who had been leading on criminal justice. Reform issues. We have state's attorney I-I've brave boy from Maryland in Kentucky State representative. Avocado. Scott in true fashion I we have to start with having you tell us what you're you into politics and we'll start with you state's attorney. Well, that's a great question. Actually I, had no intentions in getting into politics really it was my father who want to work on a campaign. He knows sometimes you have the your parents even as adults. That's. Asked. Me I was going to be a lawyer told him down and. Then, he told me I think I like you to work on his campaign I. Think you need to get politically as like now they're not. WanNa do that. But that the person who? Wanted. To work for happen to have graduate from the same law school that I will. The Howard University School of law. I'm did okay. Another in help bison out. Ever since V. I love how Howard alums Y'all always get an issue it can do no. Just regular conversation. How are you today? Oh I went to Howard. Thank you. Scott. Tell us whether you into politics. Definitely, you know state's attorney brave boy our fathers I mean you know it's their fault. So. I was born in. My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained

A Banana a Day Keeps the Heart Disease Away

"What's the topic for this week this week? We are talking about bananas bananas. Yeah, you know, we always have that old adage of an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but we can actually add a banana into that too and banana a day may keep the heart disease away. Oh heart disease. Okay. Well, I'm listening bananas have a lot of cardiovascular health benefits because of the nutrients that are in them and here again kind of like wage. Talked about on a previous podcast of potatoes being banished right as a a food that is too high in whatever bananas have often been relegated to that category as well because they're always considered to be thinking that they're high in sugar and that sugar content is, you know too much for our you know, our blood sugar levels that but actually a bananas are actually in the office low glycemic category. Hm all different stages of ripeness. So for example, a under ripe banana, which we would basically call like a green banana. It's glycemic index level is a 30 which is really low to be low glycemic. You need to be between 1 and 55. So 30 is considered a very low glycemic if you have a slightly under ripe banana, that's yellow with a little bit of green. The GI is 42. Okay, and then in a ripe banana cake Can all yellow his fifty-one so you're kind of getting close to the 55, but it's still in the low range and then an overripe yellow flecked with brown has a GI of Forty-Eight. So all varieties of banana and no matter what type stage they're all low low glycemic. Hm. So I think that that's a you know, it's a myth that's been perpetuated and of course, you know, we have different sized bananas that you can buy. There's like really big ones during those small ones. So I always try to go with the medium sized banana cuz that's what these GI numbers are from. Well I can see why the internet just kind of grabs onto that. It's got a lot of sugar boy if we only didn't have bananas we would be better people. I don't know what the deal is but they really don't like bananas the internet. Yeah, and you know, we see that in low carb diets and those types of things that bananas are off the list but so here's a nutrient quality of bananas. They're high in vitamin K. 6 about 25% of our daily value comes from a banana and they also have vitamin C fiber 11% of our daily need for fiber is from a banana. And of course, they're very rich in potassium. Oh, that's that a medium sized banana has about four hundred milligrams of potassium. So I'm not good for our emotional health isn't that potassium is good for a number of things but really good for the cardiovascular system potassium is also an electrolyte so long we need it to have fluid balance within our body kind of has an electrolyte is something that has like a little electrical charge within the body. So it it actually takes care of our own nervous system all of the nerve impulses that we have. So potassium's important for that. But in terms of cardiovascular health are actually three different ways that bananas help. So the first one off It has to do with the potassium content because potassium is a mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. And so the inclusion of bananas can help prevent high blood pressure and protect against atherosclerosis, which is basically atherosclerosis is like when you have inflammation in the arteries and they constrict and oftentimes cholesterol buildup can occur because of that so that's really important a second cardiovascular benefit from bananas involves their content of something called sterols. So bananas are there's no fat food, but one type of fat they do have are small amounts of these compounds called sterols, like saitou sterile campus sterile and stigma sterile and they look structurally similar to cholesterol. So when we say sterile people might not think of cholesterol, but cholesterol is a type of sterile as well. They're they're all similar compounds month. Literally, so these plant sterols because they are structurally similar to cholesterol. They can block the absorption of dietary cholesterol. So if you if you have some cholesterol in your meal, but you also have eaten a banana along with it though sterols and the banana May block the absorption of some of that other cholesterol from your meal off then that helps keep your blood cholesterol levels in check. Wow, so that's and that's another you know, really important aspect of having plant Foods in the diet as a lot of plant Foods off kardos have sterols and them as well and that's like avocados are known to be a cholesterol-lowering food because of their sterile content and then a third type of cardiovascular benefit from banana juice is has to do with their fiber content. I probably talked about this before but bananas are really good source of something called soluble fiber which fiber dissolves in a Fluidity Waters that are you know, from foods that are coming through your digestive tract. So it forms kind of like a gel in a way. I always like to use an example of cuz people can use this visual what happens when you put chia seeds with water. They they absorb the water and they jell up they make like a almost like a gel and so that's happening in your intestine when you have soluble fiber in your diet. So bananas have a lot of soluble fiber and what that does is it attracts cholesterol to it and it also attracts even some of the carbohydrates and sugars from the meal. It tracks them into that gel and then they don't get absorbed into your bloodstream. They stay in the stool and then they are eliminated through the bowel movement rather than actually having them into the bloodstream. So that's how soluble fiber manages our blood sugar and manages our cholesterol levels. So that's you know, some bananas man. They're really good. Yep. Really good, they also so something really interesting with athletic performance that I found information on about the banana. So the name of a unique mix of vitamins minerals and the low glycemic carbohydrates making them a favorite fruit among athletes a study of distance cyclists found that eating the equivalent of about one half of a banana every 15 minutes of a 3-hour race was just as good as keeping energy levels steady as drinking an equivalent amount of a carbohydrate and minerals from a processed

Arika Pierce on Bridging the Gap with Millennials

"Eric Pearce on dose of leadership. Welcome to the show. Hi, thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to be here. Excited to have you on. Talking about this millennials in shows almost eight years old and I've had. A handful of guests and we've kind of we've broached this topic and just from my own experience and. I think millennials get a bad rap in the public pop culture. Absolutely. You know what I'm talking about right. I mean it's just so yeah. Oh. Yeah. They're just sitting around having avocado toast all day. I love that Avocado Toast. Yeah you're right. But I've met some really fascinating millennials worked with a mini and I tell you what the positive side of millennials that I see I see in the millennials, which is different than I think my generation genetics. Is that they. Are the ones that I've come across a positive ones they want to be part of something bigger than themselves, and that is a huge part of my message here on this show and I think of leadership. I think people join organizations or or those organizations where I've worked at I have fond memories, ring cores I always go back to that. Right had fond memories of that and it's because. I felt like I was part of something bigger than myself and I was, and I think that's what by and large the millennials that I've come across at are positive. Want what what do you think when you hear that? Absolutely I, mean, I think that's one of the things that I really love about this generation is that they want to be a part of a bigger purpose. They want to know their why that's incredibly important to them. Even you know whether they're twenty four year old millennial or the thirty nine year old millennials They're really wanting to go a little bit deeper and so I think that's something that you know maybe this wasn't prioritize talked about another generations but you. Know. I think that maybe they're almost like the why? Like why? Why are we doing this? Why is this happening? How can we do this better? So certainly I think they're much more connected to trying to better understand you know what their purpose is and how they can make sure they live purposeful live, which can be a huge positive right I mean that's that's what I think we should we should latch onto now than the negative side of that is that Sometimes. There are some unrealistic expectations however, I can't. Be. Too critical because when I was in my twenty one thinks now I wanted things to happen sooner than later I. think that's just part of being in your twenties. Right I. Think you. You kind of have I think learning that kind of delayed gratification is an intentional skill that kind of comes with with age and experience I think. Well we'll certainly and I think you know one of the things that we've seen with millennials and I think technology plays a huge part. Is that they're used to things happening fast or quicker. You know I I'm forty. So I'm in the middle generation where I remember live before the Internet Laver member using encyclopedias, not Google things like that. But you know most millennials have grown up where it's just instant access you want to figure something out you WanNa. Do something you want to look something up you just go right to the computer and out to your phone. So I think that has really played a part even in their professional careers for feels like, okay I've been here. You know two months. What's next to the next level the job, right? Exactly. The. I. Pass for that because I understand where that comes from, and in fact, I would rather. I would almost kind of rather have that if I was working with the team and I had somebody that was kind of. Overly, ambitious I would rather rain that in instead of trying to get somebody to get gear if that makes sense, right? Sure. Yeah. For sure I kind of that ambition I think is critical and they are known the generation is known to be overly ambitious but to your point, it's much easier to reign it in than to skip someone who doesn't want to do anything at all absolutely I I would I would have any day I think that's a good problem to have as opposed to. You know having a C. or D. Player and trying to get him into being a I've spent and wasted many precious time and resources trying to do that right and I would rather it's much easier to pull somebody back and Raynham in. Absolutely. Yeah. So how did you? How did you find yourself? Saying hey yeah. This is my niche. This is my purpose. Why did you want to focus on this? Yes. So it's a question. I get all the time like you know you can't really go to school for you know to become a millennial leadership coach or at least not when I went to school they probably do have more those categories now but my my background is that I actually I'm a lawyer and when I got out of law school I am had a lot of debt and I was working a job that was not. Doing legal work but not really It was more focused on government relations work, and so I started looking for a lot of jobs that I knew would pay a lot more money so I could start paying my loss. and. So one of the jobs that I I applied for which I never thought I would get was the director level physician and I think I was twenty six at the time it was for publicly traded healthcare company, and it was really opening up their their DC office and and starting their their government relations there lobbying shop here in DC, and so I got the job and you know actually I was scared because I didn't even really know how to approach it but I excelled at it I really worked hard and by the time I was twenty eight. I was promoted to the first or not the I I became the youngest Vice President the company at Twenty eight and it was a you know kind of something cool that had happened and I did work hard. But I didn't have any what I would say were leadership management skills at the time I had never really led teams I had never manager department at never had that level of responsibility and so. I just became almost obsessed with how to be successful had to be a leader had a really you know make sure that I could shine anti read a lot of books went to seminars. This was before Youtube was as popular. Now as the go-to resource and I I really I studied leadership. I studied just being successful read a lot of John C. Maxwell Book No meet a lot of his books who to this day and You know because of that people started coming to me all the time air can read my resume review my resume I haven't interview. Can you help me here? I am you know had this issue at work? Can you work with me through it and I just realized that that was just something I really enjoy doing was helping folks you know sort of navigate their careers. Based upon some of the things I learn you know some of the things I had done wrong. I had done right and a couple years ago. I ended up writing a book called the millennials playbook to adulting just to put everything I had learned across you know. How to get a job how to keep a job? You know even limit of finance tips, mental health, physical health tips. As you know, sort of advocating adulting, put it on a book and just really focus on making sure it got out to the millennial generation and as a result of that really transformed into a millennial leadership coach where that is now my whole time oath guests and. It's what I love, and it's what I honestly feel is is my why is my purpose? So that's a very long answer. That's how I got here. Why

"avocados" Discussed on Eye on Potatoes: A Podcast on All Things Potatoes

"Now, here's your host play Nordland. welker back to the ION potatoes podcast. I'm your host Elaine Northland today, we are going to be discussing an issue that has been impacting the US potatoes refer now on twenty years, and that of course is having full fresh access for US potatoes to the country of Mexico with the US Mexico Canada agreement. Now, in full effect, this agreement may give the US. Potato Industry the leverage it needs to get full fresh access to the Mexican market. We have some allies in the US Senate that are picking up a call in advocating for the industry sending letters to the administration in Washington DC to help resolve this issue joining us on the phone from Washington. DC Right now is the National Potato Council suit Yo cam corals. Cam, this is an issue we have talked about several times here on the IM potatoes podcast for our friends that are maybe joining us for the first time. Can you maybe share a little bit information and history behind why the US potato industry does not have full fresh access to Mexico yelling I'm I'm glad we're having this conversation I think it's very topical. We really appreciate that Senator Gardner Senator Risch Senator Crepeau sent letters, both to the secretary of Agriculture Purdue, as well as US trade representative ambassador lighthizer. Raising this issue and that. The new US Mexico Canada agreement could be the authorities within it could be useful and finally resolving this long trade impediment. I'll just go back very very quickly twenty years ago the US government and Mexican government sat down at the time, and they basically established effectively an informal quid pro quo. Both market access agreements were set on similar timelines. the US honored that agreement and in the intervening twenty years the Mexican. Avocado. Industry has built a two billion dollar annual market in the US for their avocados. However. Mexico did not reciprocate for US fresh potatoes and we have access to just very limited part of Mexico just south of the US Mexico border It's access that is limited by no scientific measures There's there's effectively no justification for us just having this very limited access we. Can't can't sell our fresh potatoes to the bulk of Mexican consumers and so really the simple agreement the US and Mexico. came to twenty years ago has never been fully realized and part of the reason for that is the. The domestic potato industry in Mexico has been extremely aggressive and using all of their political connections as well as their legal resources to to block our access to to to entering Mexico. About six years ago. The Mexican government under tremendous pressure from the US and the international community. Finally agreed that they were going to have to allow us. Fresh, potatoes fully into their country. And that triggered an immediate reaction by the Mexican potato, industry. The. Mexican. Potato Industry sued their own government to prevent that that access from becoming real. And in the intervening six years or so..

"No I don't think again. Yeah exactly. He does forty seven strides per second. Okay. So that is Michael Johnson, the old runner who? He had kind of weird what have running where he did lots more strides in normal people and even he only did false steps per second. and. This guy did forty seven per second. So it's like you know those cartoons where you just see the legs go. Bit like that I, didn't know Michael Johnson did that to look really weird when you watched it looked like he had an extra pair of legs. He was famously he ran in a different way than anyone else. So He ran really upright and he moved his legs really really quickly. Even. Really small smaller strides like a Ballerina tiptoeing across the state law, Straits yeah. Canals could question about a Michael Johnson, for example if. Okay if you came up with a new way of running and let's say, let's just say that you came up with a way of doing four cartwheel's all forward rolls that happened to be faster than any other sprinter on the planet. Would you be allowed to do that? It's street to use your hands it's supposed to be opposite. Oh, you mean if you use your hands to run. If your. Kids, sometimes to. Actually No, I think you count because if you're in the running race and you fall over. Let's say you're a steeplechase chase race where you you're jumping gopher hurdles. If you fall over and you hands touch the floor, you're not disqualify. Yes so yeah I imagine if you want to run. With all four. Guys and legs like a rice. I'm sorry follow. The I invented a new way of doing the walking race. which I believe is faster than the way that they do the Olympics. Wow. It's extremely long straights and you move your hips a lot and I recognise faster than anyone can walk in style. Buts if I do it for about ten seconds unbelievably tired. I think it might not be very energy efficient, but it might be just the I'm terribly unfit. So. The if any, if any professional walkers. Hit. Is there? Is there a hundred meter walk sprint? Meant is shot cyst distance they go. I think is about twenty kilometers and the longest I've ever gone in this technique is about twenty meters. Set it up they. Why didn't we set up with mural allowed back together. Universe is Andy Andy Cartwheeling his way to the end. As the end. Downloading, popcorn. It's a shame if you have invented new kind of run like Michael Johnson as you have to expose it, there's no way that you can wear like a box around your. Everyone's just going what's he doing? Yeah we can't. We can't work out why he said which. Is a wrong but maybe that's what David Beckham was doing because he wasn't very fast. WASN'T A. Maybe. Throw, conceal his trick of doing seven more steps a minute than anyone else. But I think the problem is if you're wearing the Sarong in the Olympics and you're running, then people will just assume you're on a UNICYCLE. And so yeah, probably right. That's what later seem. You'd have to ritually take off at the end of the race to show that you had wheels under the. It's not just you should just ban it altogether sarongs I think in running races it's not worth the hassle. Yeah. Quite tight rap as well as. Long skirts. Quite thick material you. Know facing it by you need the massive box that's what you need of covering everything below the way. Does anyone have anything else on Sundays Couldn't? I got one fact about Perez which I think is quite amazing. Do you know the phrase? It's all gone pash eight. Yeah That phrase dates back to one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty three is the earliest we have an example of and it was used in the navy. and. The phrase. It's all compete. Tongue is only four years younger. Wow so It's it's compete. Tongue was from nineteen eighty-seven on. It's all compassionate is from hundred, eighty three. There's four year there as isn't it great that? Say Wrong in the eighties. Saying. Another time that a pair was an insult was this amazing period in nineteenth century France where it became this massive political meam this it's the coolest thing. So this isn't the eighteen thirties there was a famous caricaturist. I'm political satirist called shelves, Filipo Shallow for the. Paul and he started publishing offensive pictures of the king and he was taken to court for insulting the king and he said, how do you guys know that's the king even put someone else's name underneath it and they were like, well, it looks like the king he said, oh well, you know you've made that assumption not. One thing to to demonstrate you could interpret anything as looking like the king he drew a Pera and then he showed in four pictures how a pet could gradually transform into the king's face and anyway, which is a pretty copy thing to do and core and he didn't get. Was Prison for. A mean for the King so like all these caricaturist and all these magazines published pictures of Pez, and that was a by word for how crap the king was and it was. Just during Pez. And eventually they crack down on the. Image. And so this guy did was he started writing. So at one point they were told to stop during Pez, and if you had a publication and you like illegal things, you weren't allowed to publish something you have to publish that legal thing to be like, sorry, we did wrong. So he published what they've been told by the government, but he published the text in a pear shape. Which looks really beautiful. It's a real slap in the face. Good he's asking for trouble that guy is. Yeah. He is and he was shut down. Another pair that looks like another sort of leader. Is the? Mini Buddha pairs have you seen those? No, this is a this is a guy in China. He's a farmer spent years and years doing this where he's been creating molds where the pair grows inside the mold and for years he's been trying to get it to look like a baby, Buddha And and he succeeded he's got ten thousand of them which he brought over to the UK and you look at them and it's like a little squish together Buddha, but it's a pair and it's Why I was much easier to sell a pair that looks like a better than apparent. It's just cool and actually you know there's a certain alcohol bottles where you get a pair inside. He's trying to work out vaguely how do you get.

It's it if this is one of those songs that literally moves you when you were exiting an airplane and that sort of background music came on and was this song and everybody stunned of talking with. Yeah I still have some things I promise you that I would talk about Binghamton later. We had a very big announcement yesterday afternoon and At Binghamton University of a donation to build a baseball complex on campus in Binghamton an anonymous this donation of sixty million dollars the largest donation. Ever in the history of Binghamton I had four or five people immediately l. e. e. mail me and asked me if I had done it. It's chatter Monday. Turkey Green Douse Wurzburg. Did this. Yes he was one of them. Willi Schatz this. I said not me PAL I don't have that kind of money and when something is anonymous it doesn't mean that the people I don't I know who did it but the people at Binghamton know who knows who know Harvey Tell You. Yeah Well I. I don't even have to ask now. We had one major league baseball player. Whose name escapes me now? But who pitched for the twins was a starter for the twins within the last five years and he went to Binghamton I don't know if Morris no I don't know if he made enough money to to do this. I have no idea who did this. But this is game changing for the school for Baseball. And we're pretty good baseball. He domed I don't think they're going to build old in unendorse out how they have to play their early games away because the field is still kind of. I don't know how much is covered in. How much isn't I don't know the details of it? Scott Sixty sixty. He's the pitcher Scott time sixty million dollars so we've sent a guide to the majors and we're pretty good in baseball.

Whoever I want whenever I wonder if Mike is something to say I back away but most the time I do and often I just thank people who got involved in golf with me or pilots who were on the plane delivered safely to where I was going or just random people for no apparent reason now? Sometimes my relatives like my cousin Maryland Sale. Could you shoutout to billy and Joe you know because they they really love your show. I finally told her a couple of weeks ago. I'm done with this and done with your shout awesome done. We've done enough. that he shouted last night. I looked into the camera and I said Mark Story of Minnesota. You don't like my grammar. Don't watch hi. Don't actually already shared his address. Really sure just between you and I if you don't like grammar suck it. I mean really relate buddy who earns living talking there are occasions when you don't have the correct preposition. You know you know so I mean that's so that's your letter correct. I don't like the new set. What are you going to actually log letter? So I'd love to let I wasn't I was. I was GONNA hit him in the mouth which I did watch the some of the dog show last night. Didn't stay around for the winner. The winner ended up being a standard poodle. A standard the poodle with ridiculous haircut as happens. All the time and dog shows rhapsody in White Black Poodle large standard black poodle with the ear thing and the stuff on the legs and then so they look like sticks. They look like to your models. Let your model. So let me just say this standard poodles don't fool around with them. They're big dogs very true. They're big dogs like when you see a standard poodle St. They're not cut like that. You know and and your dog I got a big dog standard poodles a bigger than my daugh-. Yeah and I. I'm I am respectful a big poodles. It's a bad name poodle you sociologists poodle no added have we had to. My family had to dog. Sit for a standard poodle. It was my great aunt standard poodle and mom. Did it begrudgingly and kept poodle in the the basement to my great aunts horror but that poodle would come to the top of steps and hurl himself against the door and broke the the door came upstairs and tried to break into our bedrooms citizens. Your mother there was not a dog person. Anyway they're big. They're big so you don't you. Don't be dismissive now. That's my my advice ice. Don't be dismissive a standard poodle with any cookie fliegelman sightings there no. I didn't see that and in nobody would to write theater. Sherrie flick Let me just say add in in passing. I'm happy that Jussie smollet has been indicted. I am happy because I believe every word of that. I believe he invented. Don't invent crime and don't invent hate crime. Don't do that. So that's my belief. Now get a story and I've touched on before I think I told you that. There's this crummy little silver for Honda. That is often parked on my street. It's garbage car and in the back left window driver's side left window of the car is an uber. Sign or was an uber sign. I think I called up the police to get rid of this car. Once because in Maryland plates right. Let's compare your you know your Outta state. Yeah Park there but not part with somebody in it like somebody sitting in the car just paw is parked parked there in different spots on the street. Nobody likes this in my nobody. I mean nobody likes what turns out my next door neighbor. Dentist doesn't like it either because he seen it parked and it sparked variety spots and sparked overnight in his parked for days and not so not a residence. We don't know that okay. Well could be a visitor now theresa this one of the reasons you have these fears there was a dead body. Found your car on your street. Yes I don't have these fears. I have this anger. I want to get rid of this car. It does not belong on a street in the district of Columbia for this period of time without district of Columbia Hca. Yes that's my forty eight hours. It's my business long more than forty eight hours and this cars ars they are. Dennis does some research into this and finds out that in essence his car is either a least car. It's whoever whoever owns it leases at a car share. Yes Oh it's a car share and it's parked. There and Dennis has determined this because last week people knocked on his door to ask where the key was to the car. ooh because it was parked right opposite. It's like an Airbnb but yes so they have this now for cars traveling here from out of town you. What Zipcar is is standardized? But they have sort of like airbnb style or where I can find find you online. Just person to person say yeah. Go to my car. This is how you get. I'm not standing for this. No it's on my streets on Dennis's streets and his longtime Altun Guinness called the police and I said let's call brand and taught. He's the ward four representative Brandon Todd. Every time he's run. Let's call Brendan Talk. taught because we don't want this thing where people are knocking on doors. How do I get into this car? And I said why isn't parked here and he said because we don't have parking restrictions. We don't have like Michael where you live. But the ticket to DC zone three zone so very valuable I would happily have zoning I'd happily have it. 'cause I lived the streets you can. Legally I mean not encouraged as the play by play I. I think it's pretty shitty. Someone's running a business on my street not I. I don't know who this person no I don't want would you. Todd is going to be contacted. I know I I know the car get car Outta here now. What if they? I'm sorry Aldridge's in here Aldridge will go to war on the tip of the spear on this. I have thought what about attacking the car. His legal to share car psycho for the registration and the insurance and stuff dodgy. Yeah I don't know what do you think of that. Well now if they said show has become just a a a sort of palate from my anger and fears but this swab since nineteen ninety. Three with me on this. Yes that seems a little late. What is a little stevie? Yeah if they would have come to you and say look we want you quit on this will cut already percents. Don't want these office car doesn't below. Fortunately for you as buttoned up as the district is in terms of it crime fighting and stuff. They've got nothing else. I'm sure they'll get right out there and take care of this rate remain somebody on your block has the keys to that car and no no no no not necessarily I mean it could be someone who lives.

"You get six days off. Let's walk a lot to lot and play the next round that much too much for most team. I'm what do you think about choosing your opponent which I think is very hardy and putting it on television show which actually thinks pretty smart. We think I I'm not in favor of picking your opponent I think your opponents should come naturally organically manically and I understand that that would be a march madness components. This yeah what a cool thing that would be on a Sunday night. The Boston Red Sox are now going to play in the next round on the New York Yankees. I understand the drama and the value of that as we try to bring fans back into the game. Maybe I'll just wait. You'll maybe almost cynical as you does. It appear that doesn't appeal to me If this goes through I mean I I made in my own proposal last night on PTA. I I won't go over that but if this goes through fourteen of thirty teams will make the playoffs. You're you're at any almost NHL and an NBA range. There's nothing worse than the NBA. Doing four rounds of four out of seven where more than half the teams make the. Make the playoffs. I think this is dangerous. Territory Fourteen out of thirty. How about you yeah? Fourteen sounds like too many to meet now and also telling you allow fourteen in than somebody. Eighty four wins is GonNa make the playoffs and the the beauty of baseball as we know. Is that an eighty four win team mm can beat a one hundred seventy again. If they're pitching yes in a short series yes and maybe that's the best part about baseball. He's the national story. Last year was so great because they weren't supposed to win but it doesn't work that way in basketball the at doesn't beat the Golden State Warriors not at full strength but it can happen in baseball. And that's one reason to love ball even more. I just don't think it's completely healthy. Happy if an eighty four routine beat the one hundred seven weeks team in the post he happens in hockey too because goalies are just more important. The goal is more important than starting pit a starting pitcher because the starting pitcher can't go out there every night right tim I mean goalies. They're the most important single player in in in any sport. I think hockey go right. And the goalie plays the whole game. Starting pitcher only goes five innings anymore. There's a difference between those all right so tell me this. What sort of working backwards? On the way I constructed talking to you but I I when I saw that the dodgers had traded traded Jock Peterson to the angels. My first thought was wow look at the angels. Two three four five six that's trout Ren Don Peterson Otani and pool halls who nobody wants to face that and then I read that the angels pull back on that training. I've got to ask you. Why well they were not pleased with how the negotiations went and from my understanding the owner pulled the plug on that and Arte Moreno said No? WE'RE NOT GONNA make this deal now. I fully expect a deal to be done eventually for Jock Peterson to go from the dodgers to somewhere else. Because they haven't outfielders Sukey bets takes away for value Jock Petersen but he hit thirty six homers last year. And let's face it doesn't matter whether you get it left handers or these you strike out all the time. If you hit thirty six owners you have value in the major league. But given his salary seven and a half billion dollars the angels listed at this. This is too cumbersome. We're going in another direction. But they weren't a better team. The angels with Peterson rippling on their teeth. Astle way around that and they'll resurrected but for the moment they don't have anything going with the dodgers doctors and we will now get to the largest news in trades all year. Which mookie Betts? Why did why did the red sox trade mookie Betts and do you think as he heads into free agency? Do you think the dodgers will want to be able to keep him. The Red Sox traded him for the most part because they were certain take that he was going to free agency and once went to free agency. They weren't survey was able to resign him and therefore they would have lost him for a draft choice given that is who they said all right draft choice or trade him for three young players and in their minds. That was not much of a choice. Now they made so so many mistakes before then signing pitching whose long-term deals and choosing mookie money to sign those guys but they didn't they felt they didn't have much of a choice and yes. The dodgers fully expect to resign him long-term if of course he's the player. They think he is and I think he he is that player. But it's GonNa cost you the normal amount of money but they have an enormous amount of money to receive a hard time justifying trading three players for him for just a one year rental. Mike guests is way in advance. They will find a way to sign him. long-term that's what I thought I mean I you know now. This is one of those things that actually is coincidental that really works in the dodgers favor. The All Star game which is a showcase that is very influential in the mind of a player Orissa where he wants to go and what he wants to do. Do you know where it is. This year is in dodger stadium. So when Mookie. Betts is on the All star team for the dodgers in dodger stadium and gets. That's the kind of ovation that he's going to get. If he's on the All star team they can sign him during the game. Tim They can. I mean that's worked out for heartburn. The nats going through free agency for a premier player is important for the Union to go out there and let every team bid on you and set another market here. And that's what Buki. Beth is a bit under pressure to do as our most rape players and he may you just say all right. I'm going to go out there. And he who really wants me but the dodgers may offer him something that says you don't need to go to free agency. We have you in the perfect spot. Now we're going to be great for years to come. You need to stay here. And maybe they get this done before he goes to create and I'm just GonNa let you go on this note. We are now selling product. We're doing commercials for imperfect foods which are maybe oddly shaped or bruised or something like that and there's a really good deal if you sign up. I think you could get Avocados. Oddly shaped Avocado just Miss Colored Michael override. But you would really like them so I I may I may press upon you to join up with imperfect foods. Okay Tony for Christmas. I got avocado socks. I made a speech in Akron. Ohio this off season and my party gift was a helmet not filled with ice cream filled with seven on the airplane. Yes terrific terrific. Thank you tim telling me I must say. A soccer of Avocado auto does not sound very comfortable though Avocado sock. I think it's probably a Miandi sock avocado. I might have gifted that sock. Then made its.

"Sent to us by Caleb Likey. Lie It wa who writes. We are the likely siblings from the young band. Girl named Tom Nice standing currently currently on a nationwide tour and along the way we met someone who suggested I contact your show. I've actually been a fan of yours for a while and I believe our story and music would fit really well with the show I love how include music on the show. Unique stuff is an album from girl named Tom. Album called another world. This song's called in another world. We're GONNA play them twice today. It's a really cool now. It's lovely dark. Are they playing Tim. Kurkin who joins us now and I had a whole bunch of questions until I picked up the paper today and I saw that Marlin Gonzalez at publicly apologized for what happened with the Astros and he was on that team in two thousand seventeen joining Dallas Kaikal as somebody was publicly apologized to his on that team in two thousand seventeen and I guess the the question I have is these both former astros. I haven't heard any current astros. What do you expect to happen from current Astros? Well Tony. They're going to address the media tomorrow the entire team the way I understand it. Jim Cramer owner has gotten everyone. Unwanted together brought the position players in early to make I guess a public apologies for what they did. Now exactly how they're gonNA do. It is unclear. Are they all going to go up. There together is going to be orchestrated is gonNA look sincere or is it gonNA look disingenuous. It's going to be tricky. How they do this but the bottom line is they're gonNA have to show some contrition and it'll be interesting to see how many guys speak up in what manner they speak up to? They do it just as a team they do it all individuals. It's the very tricky spot. The answers in and of course they have created all of this themselves. What do you make of the Bolsinger lawsuit saying that? I lost my ability to be in the major leagues. I lost the ability to make millions of dollars in its directly because they were banging a garbage can and lit me up over one third inning. What do you make of the merits of that suit? Well I don't think it's the only one will see that I'm I'm not buying this completely by any means. Means he hasn't even got a call to be to play AAA baseball. Let alone the big league so I think he's grasping at things here he he. He just wasn't a very good pitcher and yes that final outing in Houston may have ended his major league career. But maybe it was supposed to and I and anyway but still I think he hasn't right to present this I just don't think he's GonNa get very far with it. So why do you think. And I'm I'm assuming that the answer has something to do with the deal between rob Manfred and the players association. I'm assuming because you want Labor peace in the future but why do you think none of the Astros themselves have been punished that there's a punishment that the owner of the team dealt out to the manager and the general manager. I'm quite certain with baseball's approval. But but why do you think no individual. Why do you think that they made that deal that no individual player would be punished at all? Well they granted them immunity so they could get to the bottom bottom of this. which was the most important thing to them so they said the only way to get to the bottom of it is to talk to the players who were involved also? Oh I think that's part of it. That would be unfair to punish some players who didn't have much or anything to do with this. Even though they all had had to know what was going on here now to pick out well. This guy was the ringleader. And this guy benefited from I. Just don't think the Commissioner's his office felt. There was a fair way to do that and then to punish players were now on another team punishing a team. That had nothing to do you with the two thousand seventeen Adams but tony the punishment has already begun for these players. They have been blasted from coast to coast not it just by the media but by other players wherever they go this year. They'RE GONNA get booed they're gonna be called cheaters and some of these guys gotta be affected that Hall of Fame Times Carlos Beltran. I'm sure so. Maybe that's not enough punishment. I certainly understand that but this talk with the players aren't GonNa be punished at all. I'm not sure that's true. I I wouldn't want that Kinda bag dragging around feed the rest of my career so I'm old and I'm cynical goal and I spent most of the career writing for newspapers where I learned to be cynical and grow old and I don't think things happened coincidentally very often. I don't think it's all a coincidence that the baseball proposal to change the playoffs was leaked when it was leaked so that we don't have to pay attention to this particular scandal which leads me to the question. Are we done with this because we don't yet have a report on Boston. Are we done with this. And how hard baseball trying to sweep this away. Well we're not done with this not until we hear from the Red Sox but more and more information gonNA come out Tony. We've opened up the box and it's possible we're going to find out that more teams were involved in this more players. Were involved with this. It's clearly this wasn't just two teams. That was doing something like this. We're doing something like this. It's just the Astros. I keep being told one way above where anyone else went in a sign stealing scandal doc. So baseball would love to go away. But it's not going away this spring. Tony and I fully expect the rest of the season we're going to hear about. Oh look there's a secret wire over there. There's a strange sound be made here but I would think with the punishment already been you know levied that this is GonNa at at least begin. Be The beginning of the end of the science dealing scandal. So let me turn to the playoff proposal That is not etched in and stone by any means and get to a couple of points here. The wilpon point is that if you give the best team at least a week off you hurt them. I'm in baseball because baseball is a daily sport your thoughts about that. Well to that point I agree. This is a daily sport and even though a week off and football and in basketball widely athletic. Sports really help a team. I don't think it helps nearly as much in baseball when you are used to playing every day however if you can reset your rotation and have everyone pitching on full rest for the first round of the playoffs and then you you keep it throughout the playoffs. That is a big advantage. Also but I know when you've played every day season and then.

"I throw it in the compost pile the warmth of the compost pile triggers germination and three weeks later, there's a little plant growing in the compost pile that I can take. Hot. I'll tell you living in New York City, I had no compost pile. But but I did start them more often in soil than I did in water. Oh, come. I've started them in water. So that I can watch the process and to do that most people will take three toothpicks. Yep. Stick them in angles in the in the oven KADO seat. And then suspend that over a glass of water with the pointy end up and the rounded end just barely touching. The water is a great way to do it. Particularly a great thing to do with kids. Right. Yes. Because then you can all watch the magic that happens that just from this slight touch of water and being a warm house environment that Pitt will stick down its route and put up the leaves. And you can watch the whole thing going on right there in a clear glass. Yeah. Yeah. For long jetty sake. If you wanna grow the avocado as a house plant when that route has come out. Out into the water. You're going to want to transplant that pretty soon because the roots that develop in water are different from the roots that develop in soil, and it'll be better for the plant. If it starts developing the correct kind of route sooner rather than later, and that's why mostly now I start my avocado pits in soil again with the pointy end up and leaving at least an inch of the seed exposed above the soil. They're beautiful plants thin delicate leaves with a nice shape. You're never gonna get an avocado fruit growing this plant inside. But you can still have a very nice house plant. Yes, I agree. It's a beautiful house plant. If you happen to be fortunate enough to live in zone ten or eleven you can plant it outside. I always love Ellen going to California because. For the most part the avocado that we get in the stores in the northeast are the Haas of cod does and they dominate the market first of all they're very oily. They're delicious. Right. But they also dominate the market because their skins are thick enough. So that they tolerate shipping. And so that's kind of how they have come to be the avocado that just about every supermarket sells. Right. What I love is going to farmers markets in California and seeing that there are dozens of varieties of avocados. Do you? Remember, I think you and I went out for supper in Pittsburgh once when there was a garden writer symposium there. We went to a restaurant, and they served us this tiny little KADO, and they said and you're supposed to eat the skin. Do you? Remember that? I do I forgotten that until you just mentioned it forgotten until you were talking about the. Yeah, there's so many. Varieties of KADO that we don't even know about. And they're all the good kinds of fat in the wonderful flavors. That's right and actually Alba KADO has more protein in it than most fruit. So it is it is a fruit that has a lot in terms of of your health. It has a lot going for it. Not only the the fats that are the good kind. But also, it's got a fair amount of protein and all kinds of other good stuff. So very healthy to have. And if you're fortunate enough to be in California, go to a farmer's market and look for some of these different varieties because you'll find some of them that are, you know, large really huge, you'll find them very tiny. You'll find them with very very thin skin and thicker, skin, and all of them have a slightly different flavor. So have some fun with it, certainly. And then start the pits. Start the pits. That's right Ellen. If somebody does have. Avocado plant growing is this a plant that you would keep in your round. Or would you put it outside for summer camp? I pretty much put everything outside for summer camp. That's well almost everything. And I would but do remember because it's got such a thin leaf to really going to need to get acclimated to being outdoors. If you move it from indoors to full sun outdoors in a single day. Those leaves are gonna just burn right up. So so do be careful. I think you're KADO is gonna love being outdoors in the summertime could advice..

I'll start out by saying that I never liked of accardo's growing up. My parents loved them McKay. She really bought an eight them. I I didn't like them, Dan. And I early in our relationship moved to the San Diego area where we had a KADO trees in the backyard where people were raking avocado fruit off of their lawn and putting it in their compost piles. There was so much of it. Right. And because he liked guacamole. I started making him guacamole. And I would then occasionally lick my fingers and lo and behold, I got a love of calm. But these are pretty cool plants, you know, aside from the delicious fruit that will talk about in a minute. These are pretty cool plants and one of the first things that's really cool about them is that these the flowers on of KADO 's go through a sex change on a regular basis on a daily basis. It's so fascinating. I had no idea. So apparently, there are two groups of accardo's, and they both do the sex change thing. But just in a in a different way. But basically what happens is one day. The flower opens up, and it's female and the next day. The same flower opens up, and it's male. And the reason this is done is is really pretty interesting. It's so the plants won't always pollinate themselves. Now, there's some self pollination 'cause you might. Have a flower. That's at its female stage on the tree one day and another flower at the mail stage that same day, and they could cross pollinate. But in general, this guarantees that the flowers from one tree will probably be pollinated with pollen from the flowers of another tree. And that brings in genetic diversity, which is going to give you a better Krahn is a fascinating thing. The fact that, you know, here female than it closes up shop for a little while and then opens up in its mail. It's a pretty amazing. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know if there are any. I mean, there may be other plants do that. But I don't know about him. I think it's really a cool thing. And you know, just the way that some plants have -veloping is really astonishing. And this is a one of them for sure now. So people are growing auto KADO, clearly it is in your favor to have several plants. Right. So you wanna have a four five Mocatta trees if you can at least two similar in a way to Apple's right apples pollen cross pollinate each other. And so and they're not self fruitful. And so if you want good crop of apples, you need to have more than one tree and other KADO 's are certainly the same Ellen when you were young did you ever route? Or maybe when you were older did you ever route it? Yeah, I did. But you were correct in assuming it was when I was older because I really I really wasn't interested in plants as a young person. But I have started many many Inaba KADO Pitt as an adult. I think they're beautiful plants. And it's just I don't get. I still get a thrill when I see the root and the stem come out of an avocado pit there. I don't know. It's like it's the beginning of life. And to me, it's it's the sound so weird, but it's a beautiful thing. And I love watching it. Well, it is a beautiful thing because the route comes out really strong right at the on the KADO pit has a lot of nutrients in it. And it's and it's designed actually to sprout pretty quickly because wherever Cottle's grow is a warm kind of humid environment. Right. And it's an environment. Where if the avocado itself falls to the ground? It's gotta get up and running pretty quickly in order to compete with everything else that grows in these warm, humid environments. Yeah. Yeah. So so for those of our listeners who have not actually ever tried this. Let's describe a couple of different ways that they might start an avocado pit do. You have a preferred way. Yeah..

"This is plant Rama with CO for Nari and myself Ellen's Akos. It's the podcast where there are no stupid questions as long as the topic is plants today. We're gonna talk about nematodes avocados and berms, and we're going to start out with the with the creepy crawlies with the nematodes. What are they are? They good are they bad. What are they see L while basically, they're worms there? You know, what they are? And here's the thing though, why nematodes are of interest to Gardner's or to plant people is first of all in some parts of the country. They can cause significant damage to plants summarize them. All right. And Secondly, there of interest because the varieties that attack plants or believe it or not some of them help plants. Are less than one millimeter long. They're tiny tiny tiny and most of them are invisible to the human eye. Yeah. Which makes it which makes it particularly mysterious because you will probably have no idea that you have nematodes unless you notice nematode damage on the roots of your plants, and as you mentioned that's only a problem in certain parts of the country. And I believe that's in the warmer parts of the country is that's right. That in terms of agriculture or gardening where nematodes are most problematic is in the south. Yeah. And so for for those folks nematode damage can be a problem. There is some amount of nematode damage that happens on plants up in the north. But most of it is. So slight that we either don't notice it or we blame it on something else. Now is that because those are plants that were grown. In southern place, and we're shipped up here, and the nematodes were in the soil, or is that because there are some nematode species that can actually over winter in colder climates while there are nematode species that can over winter in colder climates Ellen. But I don't know the answer to your question as far as harmful nematodes coming up from the south. That's certainly very possible because plants travel worldwide these days and and both. The pleasures of plants and the problems of plants are transported all the time. Right. So, but I don't know what they're harmful nematodes have have come up for the south or of these are just different varieties. But what's interesting about nematodes? Is there are beneficial nematodes? Okay. S, and I have actually sprayed beneficial nematodes onto my garden, and that was a really interesting process. Well, tell me about that. Well, I ordered kosh. I wish I could remember what company I ordered my beneficial nematodes from, but they come in a tiny little pack as you mentioned they are microscope. It's not something that you can see. And so what I did was followed the instructions, you you put that packet into water, and you spray it onto the soil with a pump sprayer the same way, you would maybe a fertilizer or compost, tea or tea, and and then the nematodes if you've done it correctly will work their way. Into the soil, but they're very specific temperature requirements at which the nematodes should be applied. And then you have to do it with a certain amount of water. You will get the nematodes if you order them with all sorts of instructions, but it was just such an interesting thing to do to be spraying insects on your garden. Well, these beneficial nematodes can target other pets that are harmful such as grubs beetle grubs that do damage on people's lawns. One way to fight them is to apply the beneficial nematodes to the soil. So there are nematodes that are basically predators. And that's why you would want to put them on on your soil. Yeah..
