Fresh update on "bay" discussed on Bet The Board
"Stay away zone but there still is at least from a teaser. Perspective the home team through the three and the seven does make some sense. And i think ultimately if you did like the rams that's the option that you will execute this week it always makes sense to explore any of the potential tools at your disposal as a sports better. If you miss a number. They'll be another ship that comes in or at least another permutation or way that you can choose to attack a particular market four games down pain and this is normally the point in the show read. Welcome in our weekly visitor with john sheeran. But john had some prior engagements. He's headed out on the road so he did relay across a little bit of information that he wanted us to share with our listeners. I did tell him early this morning. That rather than butcher his irish accent. I would just speak in my monotone voice and kind of pass that along so from john he's told us that sharper money. They've seen so far. Came on the cincinnati bengals at plus. Four as you'd expect but not only were they betting the bengals plus the points. They were also betting the bangles on the money line. Plus a dollar sixty and in the game were about to preview which we can start with as well to kind of piggyback john. He said they've seen over money. Between the packers forty niners a total that they opened his lowest forty eight and a half. It's been bad up and he was pretty. He said that may be one that they'd like to have back. Because their numbers made it slightly higher than the opener. They used that kind of mirrored the market. So those are the two biggest. Takeaways will get the green bay and san francisco in depth but regarding john's analysis. And what they've seen on the bengals pain. I can't imagine it surprise to you. Given how poor. The steelers have performed and the mounting injury concerns on both the offensive and defensive side so two things here is he going to bring us back a nice block of cheese. We'll see where exactly he's going or what he's doing. Well ask which that okay. yeah well. that's a call him out and when he comes back on the show next week we'll let them share a little more details but if he ended up going somewhere fun and didn't invite us along with them not going to be real happy about it. The second thing is. I'm glad that he gave us the report because i think last week or after last week people like we just didn't invite him back because he liked san francisco and we liked the eagles. I did wanna bust his balls and ask him how he felt about that. Twenty four hours later when you know they went from plus three and a half down to two and a half if he was as confident in the forty niners at that point in terms of the bengals and steelers this number open short for a reason. Obviously the sentiment about the steelers coming into the season was their win. Total closed eight point two. This was a below average team from that perspective and everybody all got hopped up on their performance against buffalo and again no doubt you go out on the road opening game of the year. You went outright as a six and a half point dog. The wind probability looked great late. Fantastic but you're not going to win games with one hundred. Eighty eight passing yards in twenty twenty one and we had seen big ben in. Pittsburgh performed very well and openers one of the worst spots of the entire week. The raiders go in there and just kick their ass and so even though this line opened up kind of short and we're not necessarily sure with the bengals are. I think you could say in their home opener. The vikings lost that game more than they want it and then they know showed last week against the bears. The score looks closer with the two late touchdowns with five minutes to go but this is a rivalry. This is there a game where they typically get up. There's not a lot of important games in cincinnati so this typically becomes their super bowl. I can confirm that. The bengals are very sharp at four and a half. But now you're sitting here looking at like a full game line of three point one. I would probably gravitate towards the bengals if you do like that side at this stage in the game first. Half plus the three minus twenty just kind of looking in thinking about cincinnati. Jack taylor has been there a believe thirty five games now. Is it thirty five games. Roughly in that area they have led at some point in twenty five of those yet. They're just not very good in one score game so potentially going first-half the bengals have shown an ability to compete and not win. Close games in the line would indicate that this could be a close game late. That might be the better approach. Since you've you know you've missed the four and a half as well too. I know the bengals are going to have ongoing protection. Issues with their offensive line and we can dissect their decision to draft your marchese head of penisula until we're blue in the face but each game that passes. I think joe borough feel more and more comfortable on that knee. Typically with an acl. It's gonna take you a little while to get through the mental hurdle and once that light goes on it makes his bengals offense that much more dynamic not seeing it comes this week but something to keep tabs on for those folks who are looking to identify a little bit of betting value and opportunity as it pertains to cincinnati onto the sunday night or in the bay area. San francisco will open up their home slate welcoming in the green bay packers. You're looking at the forty niners. A three and a half point favorite. You do have to lay a dollar twenty if you want to back the dog. Fan duel sportsbook. Total as john mentioned out through a key number or two at fifty. And when you look at the last three meetings the green bay packers bury the forty niners last last year. Thirty four seventeen and week. Nine the season before san francisco played bully ball in route to getting to the super bowl knocking off green bay in the nfc championship. We know about the coaching familiarity. Matt floor and kyle.

Fresh update on "bay" discussed on Bet The Board
"Pain two weeks of the national football league officially in the books we capped off week two with a semi dominant performance. At least in the second half from the green bay packers anything. Really stand out to you from what we've seen over. The i thirty two games of the season home field advantage not really playing a role to this point obviously super small sample size not a ton of data but we came into this season shrinking homefield advantage from about two point. Two down to At this stage like one point seven five is what we're using and we anticipated that it would go up just a tick from the two point two will use last year based upon fans being in the stands again and it just has not transpired. So that's been the biggest thing for me terms of monday night. Football not really shocking. Green bay finally woke up. They had some advantages there in the second. Half when lions top corner in that game went down and leflore started to go to a little different. Look offensively as shockingly They saw to high safety again. Aaron glenn came out and presented. Exactly what the saints did. And it gave him some trouble in the first half but they adjusted in the second half the other thing that kind of unfolded there and the weather came in in jared goff turned into a pumpkin. He does like whether we knew of his small hands coming into the draft and suddenly when it rained in the ball got slick jared goff reappeared and that's ultimately what transpired on inevitable. Yeah it was amazing to watch. Green bay packers turn a four point deficit into a fourteen point advantage or thereabouts. My math obvious. Little bit rough. They're essentially with the lions getting one snap to try and really create some separation. I should say four point edge into an eighteen point edge. If i can actually do numbers in my head so green bay looked a lot more like a team. I think a lot of people expected to see in the second half. I have joked on twitter. That pre may packer spin panicking watching that first. Half going into the break down seventeen fourteen thoughts and prayers to any lions backers out there that had their team total over eighteen and a half. You deserve to slightly better fate than the hand you're dealt on monday night wanna remind all of you. Our loyal listeners. A go to youtube dot com search. Bet the board sign up subscribe rate comment on our the board pre-game show of course we'll have episode three to coincide with nfl week three available for you. Friday at noon eastern time the newest evolution of the bet the board family all right paying five games on the docket. And do you wanna share with our listeners that we've taken their feedback into account and modified our format for today's program. I think that's what we always try to do. And that's the one good thing about bet the board when we own it. We control the condit. We can do whatever the hell we want. And so the reason we have this loyal following the listeners so we decided to listen to listeners. We've expanded a little bit on the college front allowing them to vote on some of the games and this week the overwhelming feedback we got was we. Don't give a shit about the houston texans and so add another game breakdown to the sunday slate. Let's skip carolina in houston and so here. We are a fifth game for sunday. And of course normally cover the thursday night game is the last thing we do before we bid you a fond farewell tonight data to be replaced by sunday night football. And we'll go through rotation order so when you best out your odds books your numbers and all of that. We'll start at the top of the board with a game in western new york where the buffalo bills will welcome in the washington football team. This number has been on the move all week right now. You're looking at buffalo. A seven and a half point favorite at fan duel sportsbook total in this game of forty five and a half. The bills will enter the contest on sunday off their largest shutout win as a franchise since nineteen ninety two. It's actually the first shutout since sean. Mcdermott took over as head coach. Ironically enough pain the last shutout also came against jacoby percent except he was wearing new england. Patriots colors back then when you look at buffalo seven of the last eight regular season wins for the bills. Have all been by ten plus points but this is a role that the washington football team is much more comfortable in seventy two against the spread the last nine as a dog ron rivera catching eight or more as an nfl. Head coach doesn't quite apply here now. Six two and one against the spread. Interestingly enough all of those games have gone flying over the total. The reason i bring that up because i think the most logical place to start paying is with buffalo on the offensive side. They haven't exactly look like that juggernaut. That dynamo grew accustomed to seeing week in week out last year. I know you didn't mean to do this. But you're throwing negative jacoby perset vibes into this show. Five minutes into it. It was not negative. It was merely creating a parallel. And while though the jerseys are different sometimes the results can be the same but that thirty thirty-five nothing game last week against miami. Rather misleading by five touchdown drought. Type of scenarios okay. I'm just just megan shirt for for potentially later on the podcast. We just don't want those negative vibes on this show. Notes foreshadow shadowing stay where lead me. Because i let you own alright thrown now that you rattled. You're starting to sound like scott frost offense. You couldn't adjust for breath as defense after one series of the season opener..

If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one

"From cutie. Today i want you to meet a couple of sandwich. Lovers sandwiches are kind of a big part of the culture of my family. That's lauren alexander. She and her fiance. Jonathan hilas love ordering those sandwiches on a specific type of bread dutch. Crunch it's like crispy and crackly on the outside and could of soft and slightly sweet white bread on inside now. Here's the thing about their now. Favourite bread neither. Jonathan or lauren had even heard of dutch crunch until they moved to the bay area. And when i tried it i was like wow. This is the best sandwich bread i've ever had. So they came to be curious with this very important question. We wanna know. Where does dutch french bread come from. And why is it seemingly only available in the vary. Move over sourdot today. Bay curious is bringing you a story. We first aired in two thousand nineteen. We'll take a bite of dutch crunch support for bay. Curious comes from sierra. Nevada brewing company family owned operated and argued over since one thousand nine hundred eighty proud supporter of independent thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more at sierra nevada dot com to get to the bottom of the dutch crunch origin story. We asked reporter. Amanda font to get crackling. I grew up in southern california but went to college. Sf state the first time. I encountered dutch crunch. I was at the ice in the student center. It was a revelation what makes the unique is the crunchy topping. That's baked onto the top of the role. That's what puts the crunch in dutch crunch. But what is it. I asked a professional. My name is mike. Mike rose and co owner of semi freddie's bakery on his business card. Mike lists his title as mad scientist because making great baked goods require scientific precision. I met him over at semi. Freddie's world headquarters in alameda for a tour and to see how they make that bread. The bakery is huge with a long row of enormous ovens dozens of hair net clad workers carry bags of flour or mix ingredients together. There's a whole walk in fridge filled with slowly developing sour. Go and as you can imagine. It smells incredible. But i'm here for the dutch crunch. So what are the ingredients in that crackly golden so delicious. I don't care that it's cutting the roof of my mouth. Special topping was topping our rice firewater. Sugar yeast oil and salt. All those things go into a big industrial mixer to be beaten into a paste. Meanwhile the bread dough is machine. Cut into square pieces that get rolled into sandwich size loaves on a conveyor belt. They get a final hand shaping as their set onto trays. They will the giant bowl full of topping. Mix over and scoop it into some pastry bags. Then they coat the whole top of each dough role in one smooth motion using a wide flat pastry tip in their raw state. They look like really pale. Maple bar doughnuts after being topped the pace. The trays of roles go into approved box and they were rise for several hours. You may have heard the term proof on the great british bake off the will been approved. It's been depraved depraved depraved. In this case we're talking about a warm slightly humid box where the raw dough can rise when the roles are baked. The topping crisps and snaps. Apart giving the roles their signature correctly. Look and now for a quick dutch crunch. asmar break just likely squeezing crackly topping. Now we know what makes the crunch but what about this dutch business. I asked mike if he knew anything about its origins I understand there's something called tiger bread. Bingo tiger bread is another name for dutch crunch. so called. because of its vaguely stripy pattern. I asked a friend of the show to pronounce the dutch translation of this name. Hi i'm neil's i'm from gunson. In the netherlands. I pronounce it tabled. It turns out dutch crunch. Aka tiger bread aka diabled isn't a california invention just borrowing the name of another place like the french dip sandwich it actually has dutch routes. That seems to go back to at least the early twentieth century in the netherlands. Erika j peters runs the culinary historians of northern california. I didn't know much about dutch. Crunches history in the bay area when you first got in touch with me and i was delighted to to get a chance to look into this. It's hard to trace the exact migration of tiger brad to the united states but it seems to have landed in the pacific northwest. What i found was that that's crunch as a term really starts in oregon around. Eugene oregon is is where we start seeing it in the nineteen thirties. That's right. the bay area was not the first american port for this beloved upon. The klamath news says the dutch crunch bread with delicious butter rice topping. So that is the. I mentioned that that i see is nineteen. Forty one to what makes it a dutch crunch. Bread newspapers ran. Ads for this delightful. New bread with slogans. Like it's fun to lunch on dutch. Crunch haven't tried this bread. Be to pick up almost for a real treat. Distinctive topping gives a delicious flavour. Which foreign dose to and within the decade bay area bakers began offering it locally but the california recipe wasn't quite the same. They're not doing that rice wash. They are instead using sesame seeds to get the crunch. We didn't start using the dutch crunch recipe. We know in love today until the early seventies. that's when people in san francisco start referring to making the bread with a rice flour. Wash the same as the people in oregon and in other parts of the country by then have been doing it. Turns out the bay area can't lay claim to the creation of dutch crunch and we don't have exclusive interest. I found it at a couple portland. sandwich shops. Tiger bread is still a thing in europe. And the new england grocery chain wegmans offers a similarly topped loaf. They call marco polo brad. However dutch crunch does seem to be more ubiquitous and popular in the bay area than anywhere else. It's not our baby but we raised it right. Can we get more of those crackly sounds. Oh yeah maybe we just chock it up to good. Taste that was reporter amanda font. Today's question came from morin alexander and jonathan hillis. If you're still crazy for carbs after that story you should check out our episode. About what makes san francisco sourdot unique will include a link in our show notes. Bay curious is made in san francisco at member supported. our show is produced by katrina schwartz. Brendan willard knee. Olivia allen price. Have a great week. Hey everyone olivia allen price here. I've come to ask you a favor. The bay curious team is trying to figure out what big exciting projects to take on the next year we would love your input go to acuity dot org slash bay curious survey to fill out our ten minutes survey.

"More at sierra nevada dot com start hiking. Let's do the three of us set off up the main trail. It's a gorgeous day after some rain and the hillsides are a lovely green. I would describe it as a walk into history. Ten million years of history as we walk up and back in history. Michael is full of fun tidbits. We just saw white tailed. And there's red tailed. Hawks cooper's hawks. There's all different kinds of like when i was in outdoor educator. We used to say freddy fungus met alice algae and he took a liking to each other after twenty minutes of walking near the top of the trail. We took a hard turn their. We're walking around the other side of the mountain. Yeah we are. Yeah and we are going to be very close soon to where. The top of volcano was time we arrive. What i think is the volcano a steep. Drop off into a crater. But michael tells me. That's not the volcano people come here. Oh look there's a big deep pit there that was of also called derek. No that was. That was a mountain that was taken away. The pit was dug by mining companies. They used the rock to build bay area roads and other infrastructure but if the crater isn't the volcano where is it well. Michael says we're standing in. What would have been the middle of it right now. You would it be inside the volcano ten million years ago. It sounds really hot. I'd love to be able to be put in a time machine and taken there and to see any of the the lava were kind of the rocks or that. The smoke was coming out. At the time i kind of blows my mind. Think about it. Like we're standing in the middle of the volcano. It's amazing it's amazing to think about and yet most people have no idea that this exists ten million years ago these hills would have looked more like your typical volcano with a peak and lava flowing out of it. Now it doesn't look anything like that is at the top of the volcano. One time would have been just across the valley from what we're looking. It has eroded away. The volcano has tilted on. Its side it's on its side. No wonder it doesn't look like volcano to understand all this geology. I went to kimberly blizniuk. A professor of geology. At san jose state there is something called the mendocino. Triple junction geologists. Just call it that because of where they found it and the mendocino triple junction is right now. Currently off the coast of mendocino as the name suggests it's a place where three plate boundaries come together a triple junction. Ten million years ago. That junction used to be down here near the east bay. At sibley volcanic region. The three plates are colliding sliding past one another and overlapping. The place where they meet is like a t junction and there's a little hole that allows magma under the earth to bubble up that's called a slab window. It's the slab window where magma bursts up through the crust and form a volcano and what are now the east bay hills sibley volcanic regional preserve and it gets crazier over millions of years after lots of earthquakes. Moving tectonic plates and shifting pressure. The land began to full. that's hello ball keno got turned on its side. Bear with me here. The best way to think about it is if you take pages of a book and you squeeze them together magin one hand on the spine of a closed paperback book and the other hand on the opposite pages. Now squeeze the pressure coming from both sides forces one part and the other down and what happens is that the pages will fold into a bowl and a little arc. It looks like a sine wave at sibley. The pressure came from faults and the book and this analogy is the land. We get something called congressional. Deformation where we squeeze the earth because There's a lot of stress that's being transferred from a calaveras to the hayward fall as these folks are evolving and producing earthquakes. When you squeeze the land between these faults they start to fold and tilt back on the hiking trail at sibley preserve. I looked behind me and see the tallest peak around round top. It's a conical mountain and looks more like how i imagine. An extinct volcano would look but no it was the center of the volcano. It's really have to count imagine it right. It's really hard to imagine when geologists examined the rock that makes up round pop. They found a came from deep within the earth it was pushed up by thousands of earthquakes and lots of plate movement over millions of years. Rally top is being eroded away more slowly than the other mountains and that's why it looks kind of like it stands on its own and that's why people think it is the volcano. Well they're partly right. It was part of the volcano. The best evidence. I can see the volcano that once stood. Here are some really cool rocks. All those reminds you of a place in the south west. that's not california right because of that redder utah or like you're on mars or something very kind of alien landscape. But there's one more thing we haven't explored yet it really drops off Does so the bottom of the quarry is a labyrinth that was secretly built in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. It's a dirt path lined with grass and volcanic rock the trail loops back on itself creating a big circle about fifty feet across at the center. People have left trinkets. It was a beautiful round spot already. It already felt sacred. It already felt so good there helena. Mozzarella is the woman behind the labyrinth at the bottom of the quarry what michael called the most famous labyrinth in the bay area. Thirty years ago. Helena lived near sibley and would hike there often with her pet goat together. They'd wandered down to the bottom of the quarry. One day she decided to build a labyrinth out of mud. Labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative transformational tools that mankind used for centuries. I mean centuries old at mazes what you get lost in. This is a labyrinth. It's universal so there's one way in and one way out. It's a type of walking meditation. The bay area has many labyrinths including famous ones in grace cathedral and lands end. I just did it just to do it right. I just did it with mud. Didn't even think it was going to last that long and actually it has been there thirty years. The east bay regional parks district doesn't condone rogue labyrinth builders but this one has been there so long and tended with such care that they look the other way.

So we've learned what happens. Always does in the bay and efforts to bring them back but what about the last part of joseph's question will the bay's population ever be restored to pre gold rush levels. They were so far below where we were historically as long as we sort of just increase the population. We're moving in the right direction. Ted gross holtz's an ecologist at uc davis who studies marine biodiversity. He says it's an uphill struggle because of climate change. Rising temperatures especially in the warmer months can be fatal to expose on reefs for hours. At a time he's also argued about the heavy rainfalls. We've been getting on and off in recent years rain increases runoff into the bay and lowers the salinity to levels that. Kill oysters basically every waste around the place. Two years ago to that big huge rain in the atmosphere rivers that came along with it despite the setbacks. He says oyster restoration is crucial. It's not just restoring once easy as it's restoring all species that what is true support before we got this question. And i honestly never thought much about whether oysters grow in the bay. It's cool that they're starting to make a comeback. But i gotta know khloe. I going to be able to eat oysters out of the san francisco bay anytime soon. Well katrina scientists. I spoke with told me it could be at least fifty years before the bays. Clean enough that we could eat. Oysters ounce of its safely once again fifty years. That's a long time. Yeah that's a really long time. I'm just hoping i'll still be around for the day when that's possible metoo. Well thank you for your reporting khloe. Welcome it was fun.

It's been fascinating to see this evolution of the interaction that my daughter not have. I've tried to develop a schedule. You know because that's what we learned in school and quickly earned we're going to have to pretty much deviate from the schedule every day because life happens in life is school and that's the driving like narrative that learned this whole thing's that life is school.

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco.

So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back.

She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together.

It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda.

"To answer Michael's question about when wine country got start and how it became. . So popular, , we brought in reporter Christopher Beale Hey Christopher Hay alluvia. . So let's start with when wine grapes were first planted in the North Bay. . When was that all the way back in eighteen twenty three the Spanish created a mission in Sonoma's. . It's the first place where grapes were intentionally planted in wine country but the wine made from these grapes was Sacramento Kinda like alcoholic. . Grape juice used in church, , not what we would recognize as wine, , and then in eighteen thirty s some of the early European settlers in the NAPA sonoma valleys would have grown some basic wine grapes as well. . Now, , when does the wine country that we think of today start to take shape for the sake of the story let's start in eighteen forty California is ten years from entering the Union and this guy named Charles Krug arrives in San Francisco. . Crew was a German after the revolutions of eighteen, , forty eight in Europe the comes into San Francisco. . It was the editor of a German language newspaper in San Francisco. . That's Jim Lapsley he managed agricultural continuing education at UC Davis for more than thirty years with focus on wine-making. . Now, , after a few years in San Francisco Charles Krug gets married and ended up as a dowry getting quite a bit of land. . This is the area just North of Santa Lena where the Charles Krug winery is located considered. . It'd be the first commercial winery in Napa Valley. . The wine country story is really one about marketing and innovation, , and this Guy Charles crew gets credit for a lot of the early innovation and wine country including being the first to use a cider press, , which is kind of like a slotted barrel to press wine grapes before that grapes were generally crushed by people's feet. . When California entered the union, , it was a place where we could grow grapes because the climate was quite similar to the southern Mediterranean. . It was dry during the summer it had wet winters and differ grew very well here in California. . For, , is a species of grapevine. . It's used to make wine after the early success of pioneers like Cruyff people began to plant grapes and produce more wind and the NAPA and sonoma valleys. . But this was still considered low quality table wine and it continued to represent only a fraction of the US market mainly because it was still cheaper for east coast consumers to import wine. . From Europe by boat, , then from California by train. . But that all changed in eighteen, , seventy five, , the US government stepped in and increase the tax on imported European wines to twenty cents a gallon which leveled the financial playing field for California's wine producers, , and as a result, , the wines dig it imported from Europe can be much more expensive wines and oak wine that was everyday drinking. . That became the from California. . Now. . It wasn't a linear march from this moment today. . The wind industry suffered a few major setbacks over the years but one way or another managed to survive them. . Here's a few of the important ones I wine country was almost destroyed by bugs in the eighteen seventies. . This is a microscopic bug that eats the roots of wine grapes. . It's related to an eighth fit in it's called. . PHILOXENIA. . And when it arrived in wine country, , it destroyed the vineyards to kill the vineyards and the only way could really come up with a solution was to plant on grafted vines the bottom, , the rootstock would be a native variety and then on top graft with Vida's Benifica.

"To bay curious this week. We've got a weather double header with one of our goto science reporters. This is Daniel Potter for big curious. Who recorded this for us? On a morning stroll with his wife Becca, this is Becca Andrus also I guess for Bay curious. And their little black dog ruth. Pretty warm out here for a little dog that is not a barker, ventured out to the Waterfront Park in Berkeley to set the scene for us about bay area, micro climates and sort of overlooks the bay. Then see straight into. Downtown Cisco. You can see the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see them rent headlines and Richmond over Yonder It's got really amazing views in a spotlight this you can often see a bunch of different types of weather just a few miles apart we're. We're standing. It is perfectly clear. but if you look across toward San, Francisco, there's sort of the the heavy clouds that are hanging down right looks like fog. so I'm sure it's chillier over there, probably a little more overcast, which is more to my taste, the weather is different again.

"Everyone it's Olivia Allen price and this is bay curious. This Friday is June nineteenth, but to many people. It's much more than that. It's June. Teeth a celebration of freedom. The holiday has been around since the late eighteen hundreds, but it may take on a new residence this year given the protest for racial justice happening across the country. A few major local employers have even made June eighteenth a paid holiday for their staff. Here at bay curious, we like to keep our eyes on search engine trends and we've noticed a lot of locals are asking what is June. Teeth so I up. We've got a quick primer for you from reporter assaults on a poor. For one weekend each year, thousands of people come together at the Lauren district in south. Berkeley, you'll see drummers traditional African clothes, street vendors, selling barbecue and an exhibit, documenting local black history is all for Berkeley's annual June teen festival, which the city celebrated almost every year since nineteen eighty. It some AB- rates the black experience. That's what I always tell people, Dolores not cooper has been organizing Berkeley's June eighteenth festival for the past thirty three years June teen stands for June nineteenth, and it was the day that general granger road into Galveston Texas on June nineteen, eighteen, sixty five, and let the slaves. They are know that they were free in. This was two years after the Mansa proclamation. This was the last group of enslaved people. People to learn, they'd been freed. The celebration evolved into June teams an annual holiday commemorating their emancipation delores says it's meant to remember the nightmare of slavery while celebrating the resilience of the African American community, we have to to our own horn and let people know that what we've done is significant without our contribution. America just simply would not be America so June teeth puts black joy and culture, front and center through food, frightening dance and music. The more you know, the more familiar you are, the better you feel, and it's not just. Oh, I like that music, and all I like the culture kind of thing, but just knowing black people as individuals. That have the same needs and wants as everybody else, but this year is June. Team will look a bit different, so we are doing an online commentary with writings from riders artists about the Penn Dim make about civil unrest about the current status of black lies. delores says they're calling this virtual event. No justice, no emancipation. She says the organizers will publish daily commentaries by black artists about how they're. They're processing the current moment. One article draws comparisons between protesters and comic book characters. Another is about running while black in response to the killing of a Motte Arboretum Dolores, says the at the end of the celebration she'll compile the writing into a magazine so that people have a keepsake to remember this June teams by the civil unrest makes us hopeful about the future in America and the changes that. potentally can come.

"Soon. The oriole would work. Its way into more working class. Urban Architecture and a lot of British cities have what they call terraced housing and the very simple humble brick structures that go up the the streets in his uniform ranks of identical houses and they're very small and a lot of times they didn't really have too many interior amenities. These terrace houses were pushed up against each other on narrow. Lots with only two outward facing walls and if you have limited space to put the windows in the front of the House if you've got a three sided bay window especially a tall one. Let's a lot more light into the interior of the house. As Europeans migrated across the Atlantic the earliest bay windows in America first appeared in New England. The San Francisco connection comes in and the eighteen. Hundreds the gold rush is in full swing and people are pouring into California with dreams of striking it rich and then in eighteen fifty California officially becomes a state. San Francisco is really a maritime outpost of New England and New York most early Anglo. American settlers came from those cities and like eastern cities. San Francisco's very narrow. Twenty five foot wide lots and in many cases the sidewalls. You know butt up against each other to solve that problem. Those early settlers began adding bay windows two new home designs in the late eighteen seventy s early eighteen eighty s and once. A few people built may windows. Everybody did back then. Fan Francisco was isolated. In other words we had to build with what was local and won't was local was redwood while it's rare today in the eighteen hundreds redwood was widespread throughout Miranda and parts of the Bay and Redwood is very easy to work very strong very stable and the wood was cheap and so off. The houses were over embellish. So the bay windows have so much detail and and I think that just makes them stand out and makes you focus on them more and it does certainly make our victorians more unique than other cities in the country. Okay so the Name Bay window surely. That's a bay area connection right when both of our experts say no many people think that bay window refers to San Francisco Bay. But it doesn't it's a reference to the physical shape the bay window because it looks like a bay in plan and that's the origin of the name. We COPIED THE BAY window Europe essentially exactly after World War. Two Bay windows disappeared from most new construction in the city and didn't really returned to common practice until the postmodernism of the late. Nineteen Eighty S and nineteen ninety S. People start to desire return to this more traditional architecture and you really start to see that getting corporate into our buildings in San Francisco in the last two decades of the twentieth century so bay windows first appeared in Europe then New England and then San Francisco and today they're everywhere here in the payer and I find it kind of poetic that. These ornate and beautifully functional windows designed to let light into otherwise dingy. Places will forever be associated with our city.

"Final scene in the opening. Credits the tanner family is. Having this like super charming looking. Picnic Alamo Square and there are right in front of the painted ladies this row of ornate Victorian and Dorian homes. Each house has not one but two bay windows sticking off the front now. I think for me and for a lot of people who are not from the bay area. This scene created an image in our minds of what San Francisco looked like and it was all victorians and bay windows. A question about those bay windows. One Arek Tober voting round Adrian. Michaels wants to know why they're such an iconic architectural style here. He hasn't noticed as much in other cities. Today we're answering Erin question and shedding some light on the origins of the bay window. Stay with us Support for kqed comes from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argued over since nineteen eighty proud supporter of independent thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more at Sierra Nevada dot com all right so bay windows are not only all over San Francisco but you also find them all over Oakland and many other bay area towns but how did they end up here and why reporter. Christopher Steele ventured outside to find out through the palm trees that Lafayette Park. Danielle still lives on the other side. That's where we're heading but not up. Let's go back to a time just a few weeks ago when we all go outside and get some fresh air and Stan less than six feet from strangers. These are called painted lady. You can thank the hippies. They started at trying to affect the elders in the summer of love but at Backfire. Because the elders did it too. I'm in San Francisco taking a tour with local expert on Victorian architecture. I'm Jay Gifford and I started this walking tour about fifteen years ago. It's called the Victorian Home Wok. Jay came to the bay area completely by accident. In the late nineteen seventies. He stopped over while moving from Michigan to Los Angeles and instantly fell in love with San Francisco's culture and its European inspired architecture. So much so that he decided to stay didn't even finish the road trip in one thousand nine hundred eight. Jay and his partner bought their own Victoria and it was in the Dubose Triangle which is a very rundown neighborhood and we were one of the first people to actually start to restore and and put things back. If you take a walk through any part of the city you'll notice that bay windows are on almost every home especially victorians does your Victorian have Windows yes it. Does I want to try to get it where the idea for bay-windows came from in the first place. Where were they invented? We'll get back to Jay in a second because this is where expert number two comes in my name is Christopher verplank. I'm an independent architectural story in San Francisco. Christopher is a wealth of knowledge about the diverse architecture in the region he is in fact a bay curious listener so you know he's legit. Is there a specific culture that we can trace? San Francisco's Bay windows back to the Spanish was at the British up saying lend more specifically seventeenth eighteenth century England right smack. In the middle of the renaissance. This new type of window started popping up on certain homes especially states for wealthy individuals incorporate a feature called an oriole basically three-sided or four sided appendage to a building Cantilever out of the companies and their typically more of a decorative effect trying to picture and oversized bay window made of stone in many English Manor. Houses these orioles were set up as a sort of a chapel and in some cases even contained a platform.

"Or up to several days. But that depends on a lot of different factors like environmental conditions. What kind of surface? It is how warm it is in the room the humidity so it's a little hard to say right now. Exactly how long will ask so? You know my instinct would just be cleaned the DOORKNOB if possible or not. Touch it with my hand. And what about the air? We have a question about Ken. The virus linger in the air. Let's say you get out of an elevator and somebody writing before you had corona virus. Yeah this is an area that sort of up for debate right now. There have been some preliminary studies that show. Ronna virus can linger in the air for a couple of hours but those studies haven't been pure reviewed yet and so I think in general folks. Just have to take as much precaution as possible and really practice those social distancing measures have been recommended by the CDC and other public health officials. So the next question is is there a way we can see what neighborhoods people with virus are located in? So we can know where to be the most careful. I think that might be the wrong way to look at it. We know not very much testing has been done. At least not a sufficient amount of testing has been done. We should be looking at it as how to follow best practices all over the bay area. So whether you're in the hate or if you're in so much like you should follow the same health practices that you would anywhere else. Even as people are trying to move around less were still moving around a lot. You know someone who woke up in The Hague who you know may have gone to. I don't know a farmer's market in Palo Alto later in the week you know quickly could could move somethin' from one place to another. I think one of their issue is you know a lot of people potentially could have it. Who aren't getting tested. Especially if you know you're a healthier person and you're not exhibiting some of the more severe symptoms. This virus can also be symptomatic so you could have it and have no symptoms so I think that we all just have to act with an abundance of caution and like I said before not necessarily just for us but for the other people in our lives who are immuno-compromised who are over the age of sixty who could have a really negative reaction to this virus if they got it. Let's talk about the people who are currently experiencing some kind of illness Maybe it's cold. Maybe it's the flu. Maybe it's corona virus. One listener wants to know. Why can't I get tested for the virus? There just aren't enough test to go around. I mean that's the short answer. Is You know we've heard a lot recently about the CDC and other struggling to get enough test to test folks who are showing symptoms of Corona virus. So that's one of the reasons I think if folks are sick they can follow some basic guidelines. Which is stay home? We'll start there stay home. Don't go to work. Try Not to go like a lot of interactions with other people and then getting contact with your primary care. Doctor Tell them what your symptoms are. Tell them where you've been. Tell them who you've been in contact with. And then they can help make that assessment for you just taking really slow and deliberate of steps at that. Point might be the best way to go forward. A lot of workplaces are sending employees home for two weeks. You know saying everyone. We're GONNA work from home for the next two weeks. What is it about two weeks that is kind of wise? It become this sort of standard amount of time. Yes so I think in part is that this virus has a fourteen day incubation period. So at the end of those two weeks folks should know whether or not they're sick and be able to take appropriate action but I think the real answer is that fourteen days is conservative. And it's sort of A. We're going to try this for fourteen days and see how it goes and then if they need to extend the amount of time that folks are kept out of work. They likely well. That's that's totally my conjecture. But nobody wants to send workers home for a month or two months and there's also a thought that the krona virus could be like the flu which tends to clear up in the spring and summer months and I think a lot of people are hoping that the corona virus will do the same thing and that by the time we hit April. May It will have dissipated. I WanNa talk a little bit also about what's happening here in the bay area like what our communities and governments doing to to help. Stop the spread of this thing. Yeah so as of the time a recording this Oakland San Francisco and Santa Clara counties. Have all band large events of more than a thousand people I mean basketball games concerts performances and other big public events will not be taking place for a certain period of time. And that's really to keep the virus from spreading between large groups of people and then we've also seen a lot of recommendations by local governments to really practice social distancing you know they're encouraging telecommuting and San Francisco recently There was a proposed package of legislation from the Board of supervisors which would help out with some of the lost money. While people are out of work it would try to put a moratorium on fictions to prevent people from becoming une housed and then San Francisco has also set up some quarantine sites for homeless residents so that they can have a location ago too. If it's found that they have contracted the novel coronavirus. Now we have a number of listeners. Who are looking at what's happening in Italy and what happened in Wuhan and wondering you know could have time come where we would be quarantined. It's hard to say it's kind of hard to imagine you know when I saw this question. I my first response was no of course not but then as I looked into it. I I saw federal official saying you know. They don't believe that that's what's going to happen. But they can't take anything off the table right now on a day by day basis. It seems like the cases are growing. But that's something that we expect it to happen. As the testing capacity grew we knew that more cases would be confirmed. This story is moving. It's fluid and we'll have to wait and see right and you know you're covering this you know so closely that right now. I'm are there any precautions that you are taking personally? So I'm participating in social distancing. I've been working from home. I have been washing my hands much longer and much more frequently. Every time I get home from being outside at all I wash my hands. I've been doing more skype calls and facetime calls with friends which is a little odd. But it's one way that helps me prevent from feeling isolated from my community and then I'm just trying to be you know mindful of of what I touch who I interact with to make sure that I'm not spreading anything around at this point. It seems like those are the best steps that we can take. So I've been taking those steps hygiene hygiene hygiene. Yeah my hands are very dry now though we do have one last question and perhaps it's a silly one but I'm thinking about everyone you know sitting at their house trying to figure out what to do. Anonymous wants to know. Does ALCOHOL CURE CORONA VIRUS. Unfortunately it does not. Wouldn't that be a fun solution? But it does not cause or cure corona virus. Alright well Michelle Wiley. Thank you so so much for taking the time to talk with us today and yeah sharing everything. No yeah thank you as you can see. There's still a lot of uncertainty about this virus and what will happen in coming weeks and months. My big takeaways from this episode were lay low. Wash your hands and remember that. Even if you're healthy or you think you're healthy. It's in the interest of overall public health for you to keep some distance from others. We're going to keep answering your questions at kqed.org and we'll share updates online as we learn new things about the krona virus followed Kikuchi on social media were at Cuny on facebook.

"We are too. We're going to answer some of your questions today. But first a quick look back at how we got where we are in the bay area right now. Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have confirmed a case of novel Corona Virus in California. The number of novel Corona Virus Cases Continues To rise San Francisco officials have announced the first two cases among city residents one hundred and fifty seven. That's the number of confirmed corona virus cases in California reported by state public health officials to effectively retained. The virus. Thousands of people need to be tested every day. That is not happening in California anywhere in the country right. What these emergencies highlight is our basic failure of our system to serve the most vulnerable among us people who are older who have underlying chronic health conditions homeless populations the biggest thing that the see anybody has said is hygiene hygiene. I G Santa Clara County has announced a ban on public gatherings of more than a thousand people for the next three weeks in response to the virus. What happens if for example? I feel sick and call the public health department to ask for advice. Have you returned from Italy? Have you returned from Japan? Who Have you talked to? Who Have you been in close contact with? Is it is. It's extremely concerning. So that's why we should be trying to take this seriously. It's been pretty intense yesterday. The World Health Organization announced that couvert nineteen is officially a pandemic more than one hundred. Twenty thousand people are infected worldwide. Here in the bay area. We've got ninety nine confirmed cases at the time of this recording and so far three people in the state have died. This news is scary. And if you're like me you're trying to figure out how to protect yourself and those around you. You're trying to figure out. Where is the line between overreacting and under reacting ultimately there are a lot of known to this thing I can't promise you the depths or certainty of answers that we usually try to give you here on Bay curious but we're going to tell you everything we do know about the virus right now but how it's transmitted about what you should do about travel plans? And how governments are responding. We'll get into it right after this support for bay curious comes from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argued over since nineteen eighty reminding listeners to think for themselves but drink with others. Sierra NEVADA DOT COM. We've been taking your questions about coronavirus and compiling answers at K. Q. E. D. Dot Org for a few weeks now Katie's Michelle Wiley is focused solely on answering some of those questions so we welcome Michelle now. Hey Michelle Hey. There's a lot of information that circling out there and it just feels like everything is changing so rapidly. How are you covering this? Someone who's trying to answer listener questions you know every day. It's just following those changes as fast as I can. You know there's a lot of information and it's coming from a lot of different places so in some way I feel pretty akin to our listeners. Being like what is going on I don't I'm hearing one thing from this place. One thing from this other place. I'm just trying to tackle it. You know one day one question at a time and I know for a while when people were talking about Corona Virus. They would say oh. Your risk of dying from influenza is greater than Corona virus. Everyone's overreacting about this. But it definitely feels like in the past week at least here in the Bay Area. Things have have shifted and people are really taking it more seriously. Why is this virus worse than the flu or a regular cold so I think when it comes to talking about better or worse should really think about it more as known and unknown when it comes to diseases like colds or the flu? We do know a fair amount about those diseases. We kind of know what time of year they tend to crop up. We have a vaccine for the flu but when it comes to a corona virus. We don't really know very much you know we. We're not sure if it's going to continue on into the spring and summer months we don't have a vaccine for it so there's just a lot that we don't know right now so. I want to dive into some of these audience questions. This first one comes from Alan Kay and he wants to know like what about riding on a bus with other people. You if you are still going to work. How do you get there on public transit safely for writing on public transportation? General Best Practices apply. So make sure you're washing your hands. Make sure you using hand sanitizer and try not to touch your face after you've touched public spaces you know. Many public transit agencies have upped their cleaning cycles. So Bart is now going through the entire train. After it completes each Lupin workers disinfect any area writer might touch so like the hand loops that you hold onto Any sort of bar you might hold onto near the doors really any area humane touch and then Muny officials also say their equipment is being cleaned daily. You know that can offer some comfort but really. It's only as clean as the last person who touched it. I think another thing that folks can take a little solace from is because ridership is down. Bart spokeswoman Militia Tro says there's a lot of space on there we don't have as much crowding and what that means is you're able to have that arm's distance space between you and someone else. We don't normally have that luxury. We have crowding during peak commute times but because we have experienced a drop in ridership you can make sure that your an arm's distance link from someone yeah. I can vouch that I rode into work yesterday. And it just felt like they were like half the people of normal okay so this next question comes from a listener. Amy and she writes. I'm a wedding photographer. And I go to a couple weddings all over the bay area every month to work. Should I cancel my work? Or what kind of precaution should I take? So as of Wednesday morning San Francisco officials did announce that they will issue a public order that will prohibit large events of a thousand people or more. So you know. If this person's worked isn't fall into that category it really depends on what they're comfortable with. And what their health status is. If you decide to go to work make sure you wash your hands. Frequently try to carry hand sanitizer and maintain some distance between yourself and others. It's one of the best ways you can keep herself and others safe. People have mentioned at risk populations. What makes somebody at risk? Big At risk populations are folks over sixty and anyone who's immuno-compromised so part of the concerns that folks have is that you know if you're a particularly healthy person you might not have an issue catching corona virus. But you could bring it back to folks who could get seriously. Ill even die from catching it. So you just want to be really careful not only for your own health and wellbeing but for the health and wellbeing of your whole community that you're not getting corona virus and spreading it another category that we've got a lot of questions in is travel. A lot of people have travel plans coming up. They want to know what to do with them. One person wrote in and they have plans currently to fly from OAKLAND TO ATLANTA ON MARCH. Twenty first and wants to know. Should I cancel? What are the risks of being on a plane with in the US for an extended period of time so he spoke with officials at the Oakland Airport in San Francisco airport and they say this time passengers should expect serve normal operations at the airport? Both have up to their cleanings quite significantly. I think the San Francisco airport has months of cleaner. They're like stockpiling to make sure that they have enough for the long haul. Essentially so there's more handwashing stations there. You should see more hand. Sanitizing stations there as well as increased cleaning staff so for this person. Who's traveling to Atlanta? I'd say you know it really depends on what you're comfortable with. And if you're comfortable traveling as oppose spokesman Geico says the best thing folks can do is just follow good hygiene practices. You're touching something that might have been touched by other people. Wash your hands. If you're unable to wash your hands use hand sanitizer. You can't do that. Avoid touching your eyes your nose or your mouth because that's really how. How a lot of types of colds and Flus Corona viruses are transmitted. One tip that we spoke about on the phone was you should try and bring a small container of hand sanitizer in your carry on that way. You don't have to get and go to the bathroom as frequently can kinda sanitize on the go at your own pace so I guess staying on sort of the same track of of airplanes. Another listener wants to know. Does it seem likely that airplanes are going to be treated like cruise ships? Are where if somebody on. Boorda's found to be sick. Maybe you know after the travel that all passengers could be quarantined. I think at this point. It's a little hard to say. So according to the CDC's guidelines if someone on board an aircraft is sick or thought to have the novel Corona Virus Airline staff are instructed to separate them from other passengers of possible provide them face mask and then once the plane lands the CDC will conduct an assessment and determine if folks who were on the plane with them need to be quarantined and of course that assessment will generally consist of is it really krona virus or is it some other illness that looks like chronic virus. I think at this point. It's probably unlikely that airplanes will be treated like cruise ships just in part because of the way that people are transported. How many people are transported? But it's Kinda hard to rule anything out and the next set of questions has to do with transmission so this listener asks if an infected person touches a doorknob. How long does the virus last on that? Doorknob stay suggests. Corona virus may persist on surfaces for a few hours.

"For our love letter to the bay area. We sent producers Jessica check and Kiana Mocha down in the night of ideas at the San Francisco Public Library. What's happening today? We recorded interviews with about forty strangers. Asking them what makes them love the Bay area and what keeps them here. That's many of you reflected on moments when you were inspired by the striking natural beauty of this place. They went all the way to Nikko Kayaking at night. Pitch Black and as we start going out more and more as my eyes to the just dark the water around my Kayak starts glowing blue. The water out there is bioluminescence and you know I was just enjoying this amazing water. That was just read literally radiating blue and it made me think about all the Times that also were on inspiring three or four days. A week I swim in the Bay and it's such an incredible experience every time the first experience wasn't it was a little scary because it was cold and I was thinking too much about. Is this too cold? Am I GONNA get hypothermic? Is a Sea Lion GonNa bite me and you know and then I would hit a piece of seaweed and get freaked out and But after a few times you just feel like you're in another world in a world that's so much bigger than you. I love the ocean views. Eleven marine I love seeing the fog. I'm just GONNA say Carl. I don't really like you that much but I'm trying to love you. I always go over to Oakland to chase the sun. Coney has some of the best county parks in the whole United States and they even have senior citizen discount for parking so now that I'm retired. I just love hiking. I started walking into the Golden Gate Park and I ran into the Bison and the vice to the bay every part of the bay area offers something beautiful to see and experience. We also heard a lot of stories. About how the culture here has delighted. You take this story from one. Lopez who I moved to the bay area as a boy in nineteen eighty nine. When we first came to America we left Nicaragua for political reasons. And we got a cheap apartment in the mission and I didn't know this was going on but I woke up to all these sounds and Saturday morning and I look outside. And my dad's already looking outside. And there's all these beautiful grows half-naked so he was like happy. We made the right choice coming to America and I was still too young hundred fully understand but I saw how happy he wasn't looking good thing so so every year now we go off the city. Still like it's got a gold rush. Feel to it like there's still like you know you know technologists trying to make their fortune and You know and the bustle that comes with that and even now so the chaos that comes with all of that and there was just like a random guy is trying to talk to the United. I ignored him and then he wrote it down your beautiful and I was like oh so sweet and it's just like just random people showing appreciation just trying to be nice kind and there's actually a lot of people here that are like that. So opportunity has always been part of the story of the Bay area from native people who flourished in our climate to the thousands of immigrants both foreign and domestic who came in search of gold for so many of you. This place is still a beacon of opportunity for careers new beginnings a place to be yourself a mechanical engineer. The give me the best opportunity to develop my career. They give me the opportunity other countries probably would not have done would not have have a woman that the what I had in this country? I'm originally from France and I was bullied a lot there and I saw coming to the Berry as like in approach immunity to be like. Oh cool it's a new opportunity. Nobody would judge me and that's exactly what it was. I moved here when I was eighteen to be gay in public. The exception some people feel at home here and then there's the opportunity to be part of a diverse community. That's one of the things I was looking for when I moved here as a pilot or callers so you saw the Chinese culture the magic. I'm not no Honduran and all different cultures and just one single area. How Alto California always seem much more like home than Iowa for the Chinese food alone prayed? Just remember as a child being able to have Chinese food that tasted so different from anything you could get in the mid west. I actually was walking Lake Merritt one day on Saturday and they were having a women's March and it was like how a variety of women from all different backgrounds coming together and not just women it was also other gentlemen there will and so it was this powerful to see how passionate in deep people feel about equality Especially in current political climate. How certain groups and certain people get marginalized you WanNa to be somewhere where people are power for their passionate about that so it was a Gaza. Samis played back in the day when we were kids. She often said if I can take a pitcher out of Atlantic Ocean and that can sweeten that pitcher but I can't sweeten entire ocean all been like the lack in that community. Feel that I had the ability to impact the community. I can't do this macaroni level but I can do a small community so I in education. I really WANNA do. That was the first day when we brought our son to his elementary school and seeing the diversity and and the care of the teachers and the creativity of the teachers. That was a special moment when we asked about what specific moment made you love the bay area. A lot of the stories that we got were about moments that you felt pure joy this is cheesy but I love Dolores Park. I was just there this afternoon and it was beautiful and it was sunny and it was so warm its first side of the Munster candidate. Normally people will bring your dogs but you get all the cats and they're all just hanging out on the grass and looking very unsure about what's happening but enjoying it just like everybody else. The moment that I fell in love with the bay area was stepping into my first ecstatic. Dance the one in San Francisco is unique in that it's in an old Catholic church in the lower haight and all the pews have been doubt and it's now a skating rink which is beautiful but on Sundays. There's beautiful natural pouring in through the stained glass windows and at the front of the room as a DJ. And what I found was a room full of people expressing themselves in such beautiful ways. Staying here and loving. This place isn't always an easy choice. The Bay area has changed since last year. I came to know it. Anita Wong had to work through some tough stuff growing up here. I really just had to kind of a horrible horrible like highschool experience kind of had to deal with my best friend and she actually committed suicide when I was nineteen. I just didn't want to be here anymore. There's bad feelings about it but I you know I wanted to go to school and college somewhere else. Even my parents were here You know I'd have resisted really for a long time to come back but then now I'm thirty one so a lot older and I've moved it's different places across the country but I feel like I realized like my home and my heart is really in the bay area. I see how much the bay area has affected my family in terms of how many community members supporting my family and I felt like I couldn't take that away from them so I had to deal with the head of confront the bear again and I said. Okay you and I are GonNa work out our feelings. We're going to record to work out different problems and low and behold now I really I really love it I love being here and people are so much more you know really more me really like more genuine and so yeah well. My husband just passed away and so it's kind of bittersweet but in some way I feel he's still with me and still with my kids and so I'll always stay here because I feel close to him being here in the bay area even when you think about leaving imagining an easier life that you might lead somewhere. That's cheaper less complicated less crowded. Something brings you back. I moved to Sacramento but I do come back to the bay all the time because my friends are here. We'll come here just to like have coffee or lunch with them. Rethink about relocating. But it's nothing like Dorothy says. Police like home in San Francisco our home. I mean I never really wanted to leave. And it's it's kind of like it's my home. That's what I love about it.

"The Bay area has gotten a lot of hate lately. Fox News did a five part series on how wretched it is here. Civilization itself is coming apart in San Francisco and are a few other recent headlines from the Mercury News Bay area. Traffic delays ranked second longest in nation from Bay area has the highest income inequality in California even are near and dear. Npr has come for us. San Francisco City streets strewn with trash needles and human feces. It's true the bay area has problems a lot of serious once but if we lose sight of what we're fighting for of what makes this place spectacular. Where does that leave US.

"Now reporter Amanda Font heads out in search of answers about the colors of the bay. I live in Alameda but I work in San Francisco so I get to take the ferry. Every day it's beautiful it's a great commute and also means I get a good look at the water her have to say from short ashore. It looks pretty green to me incremental. Change is hard to see when you're looking at something every day day like how your hair looks just as long today as it did yesterday even though it has grown a little you could look at an old photo of yourself to see a difference but that won't work if we're looking for subtle color changes in the bay. The only way to know for sure is through data and lots of it many parts of the very different today than they were forty three years ago. Luckily someone has been collecting. That data name. Is Jim Klaren. I'm trained as a lake biologists. But I've spent my entire career working in San Francisco Bay. Jim recently retired from the US Geological Survey but he spent more than four decades studying. How the bay is influenced by human activities? And he's seen a lot of change. I asked Jim if he could answer Justin's question just straight up is he's the bay really greener okay The color of water is pretty complicated. Subject alright all right kids buckle up for some science when I think about the color of water in California the first thing I think about US Lake Tahoe. You've probably seen those bumper for stickers that say keep Tahoe blue well what does that mean. Lake Tahoe is pretty much. Snow Melt is pretty close to pure water at doesn't have much in in it and if you held up a drop and looked at it it would pretty much be clear. It's light that influences. How we see the color of water? So water absorbs herbs red and green and orange and yellow and violet but it doesn't absorb blue. Blue Light has a much shorter wavelength so unlike the colors of light with longer wavelengths same red or orange. It doesn't snake through the water they were. They hit the molecules. The blue nightly scatter on your eye perceives more blue light and so when sunlight penetrates into lake AAC likely Tahoe. All of these other colors are absorbed by the water but was slip behind his the blue. This light scattering is also the reason. The Sky looks blue. Oh so if when you were a kid your mom or dad told you. The Sky is blue because it reflects the ocean and the ocean is blue because it reflects the sky. Yeah they probably just didn't know the answer or you were asking too many questions so in the bay when you see any other color besides blue you really seeing particles particles. Ed had other colors. There are living particles in our nonliving particles to nonliving particles are mostly play particles. Also come from soils this sediment gets into the water through erosion runoff after it rains and via the multiple rivers that flow into the bay currence. Turin up the sediment which can make the water look Brown. The living particles are microscopic algae phytoplankton the phytoplankton have the same chlorophyll that land plants. Have that make them green. It's these phytoplankton that give the water a greenish hue now. The question of has there been a long term trend of greenness in the bay. It's it sounds like a simple question but it's not as simple simple and straightforward as you would think because we have all these sources of variability. That isn't a static thing it changes seasonally day to day. A our to our and so if there's a long term trend all of that variability makes it hard to detect a a long term pattern of change. Here's where all the data Ada comes in at the USGS. Jim was also part of a project that since one thousand nine hundred sixty eight has been collecting water samples in the bay to measure changes changes over time. These sampling cruises happen about once a month. I talked with Erica. Nishad on one of them. She's a biologist who works for the. US She s this day. She was using specialized instruments to collect the measurements of several different factors including chlorophyll content so so the C. T.. He is taking vertical profiles of the water column at different stations. Every station we stopped at is getting a complete vertical profiler of how space and time the TD that stands for conductivity temperature and depth is a bundle of different sensors attached together at the end. A cable at each of the sampling locations. Erica lowers this thing. Slowly to the bottom of the bag. He added this nice camera so I can see when the CD's surface. So I WANNA start right sitting at surface and then I go to as Costa bottom as I can get without reading it into the bottom so I can see back here all the way down. It's scanning taking measurements and reporting them. Back it comes back up with a sample of deep water water so they can study the phytoplankton species later. There's also a continuous surface. Water sampler running inside the lab on the boat and and a special instrument that is taking pictures of individual fighter plankton in real time. They're collecting a ton of information. So that when you look at the larger data data set patterns start to emerge. Here's Jim again. We have measured over the last two decades a trend of increasing phytoplankton. So two things. You're going on. That would make the bay look greener over time decreased sediment input less brown increasing Fayek Langton abundance more green so yes. There is a trend of increasing greenness in the bay. There you have it. It is greener. But we're not done yet because elect Ricardo Montalban in the wrath of Khan. I want to know why why. Why are there more phytoplankton now than before now we need to talk about biological communities? Phytoplankton are small but they take up a lot of space little on the aggregate but like massive on the whole if you weigh all of the communities that live in the bay the phytoplankton the bacteria the clams the muscles that crabs the fish the phytoplankton would way most it's the living component that has the largest living biomass in the bay. There right at the base of the Food Web. A lot of them are eaten by clams mussels which are filter. feeders they pull in and blue water through a tube like structure called a siphon and in the process they filter out the nutritious phytoplankton. They used to do this at a pretty astounding rate and we calculated all. This is over the three decades ago. That if you if you know how many clams mussels are in the bay. How large they are? You can calculate how fast they're filtering water her. The clams and Mussels that live in the bay are pumping volume of water this equal to the volume of water in the bay every one or two days during the summertime. If you've ever gone swimming in the Bay and gotten watering your mouth just know that it has probably been filtered through a clam so back before nineteen ninety eight. Those clams and Mussels. Were keeping the fighter plankton population under control but then things started to shift and in nineteen ninety nine. We started seeing changes in the seasonal pattern of the phytoplankton. We saw bloom in the autumn. We'd never seen anything like that before. Our Question Asker Justin was living in New York in one thousand nine hundred nine so he didn't see this shift until it was well underway the extra phytoplankton blooms. Were a mystery to Jim in the team team until they checked in with their colleagues who studied the clams they could hardly find any in the bay but other species numbers were growing. They started seeing record high numbers of crabs in the bay flatfish in the bay looking those soul and record high numbers of shrimp. Those animals are all coastal hosted marine organisms. Who Live their adult lives in the ocean? But they're young spent the first year or two of life in the shelter of the bay and they all eat eat clams so Amanda to make sure I have this starting in nineteen ninety nine. We have more clam eaters so a fewer clams thus more fido plankton and greener water. Yeah this is called a trophic cascade. A change in one part of the food web sets off a cascading effect on the other organisms in it and the clam eater numbers are still up. Which is why the water is still that rich shade of artichoke joke? Okay but why the Senate influx of those other animals. We have learned over the last couple of decades that there are natural cycles of the climate it system that fluctuate over periods of multiple decades. There are these huge wind oscillations. That happened way out in the North Pacific Ocean around around nineteen ninety nine the direction of the winds shifted in a way that caused the ocean along our coast to churn up cold water from the deep this is called coastal upwelling in the cold. Deep water is rich nutritious so this phase of strong winds strong upwelling is a period of high biological productivity activity. Okay so the winds blow it shifts. The ocean climate feeds the flat fish crabs and shrimp. Their babies drift into the bay. Eat the clams. The fighter plankton populations grow and the water turns green. That's how it works and this all has something to do with human caused climate change. I take they get actually know. Jim made it clear that this is not something that has been caused by human actions. These are responses to global climate change. This is part of the natural oscillation of the climate system. Does that mean the water will eventually go back to looking more blue so this Greening period that we've experienced since nineteen ninety ninety eight. We might reverse that pattern if we see this next climate shift. The only way. We'll really know for sure is if we keep collecting data so we can observe long-term changes. It's really important for us to keep making measurements. Keep making observations. Because the longer we do this the more were surprised. Yeah surprises are new discovers that was reporter Amanda Fund. She took the story back to Listener Justin Heart tongue to see what he thought. I'm glad to know that It's not the climate. I'm glad to know it's not my failing eyesight or my bad memory. So mystery definitely solved and I can also tell my dad not that I am not crazy what she was when I told him about this. So thanks for asking the question. Justin digging the podcast. It will definitely dig our email. Newsletter we send it on the first Wednesday of the month and has answers to more listener questions than we have time on the show. Plus behind the scenes like how we used a ferryman to make sound effects for this episode in San Francisco Ooh..

"Okay, so Kevin has a few questions for us. Are there more crows? Are they pushing out other birds? And is there a plan to reduce their populations? We asked K cuties, Dan Brady, who has a fascination with just about everything including the natural world to take a stab at answering them. So Dan, what did you got for us? So let's just say Kevin is not imagining things. I visited him at work. He works for theatrical, rigging company down in Redwood City. He says, it's the same thing every day, crows, lots and lots of crows. I see them in the morning. I see him in the afternoon. I see him up in trees. I see him on the ground. I see him on top of buildings in there everywhere I kind of feel like the crows taken over big time. And you know, to establish his credit we asked Kevin to do a cau- himself and he does pretty good. One. Barroga. Kevin's. Right. We're seeing a lot more crows these days spoke with Bob Lewis, who helps run the Golden Gate, autumn society's annual Christmas bird, count, just took a look at the count today, starting with two thousand and there were a hundred and sixty seven crows then in our circle, so that circle he's talking about covers Oakland and a large part of the East Bay for line in hells, and the Christmas bird count involves about three hundred people coming out, just for that one count in that East Bay area to count all the birthday can of whatever species in twenty four hours and it's the biggest count in the US is, actually, the biggest count in the world. So as Bob told us, we started with one hundred sixty seven crows in the year two thousand two thousand to two hundred fifty..

"Jin's popularity can be traced back to prohibition when the manufacturing and selling of alcohol became illegal in nineteen twenty people got creative have you ever heard of bathtub gin? Well, that was literally people making Jin in their bathtub. It was cheap and easy. And there was a lot of it. So when president Roosevelt repealed prohibition thirteen years later there was plenty of generosity and just waiting to be drunk. Thirty six against prohibition is happy news while the grain raises of the United States, and many others throughout the land rose about cheers in the end of prohibition with nothing, but a MARTINI. So that's a big deal right there. Prohibition. Really kind of gave the MARTINI the leg up. I mean, it is just like this granddaddy of cocktails and this granddaddy came from here the San Francisco Bay area. Well, it probably came from here in nineteen Eighty-three. The San Francisco court of historical review, a group with no actual legal authority. They held a mock trial over the origin of the MARTINI. And they determined that their city was the cocktails. Rightful birthplace. But not to be outdone a mock court in Martinez overturned that ruling shortly after. When I press Jennifer to MIR and Gabriel on where the MARTINI was invented. No one is willing to say anything definitively. But finally, Jennifer gives it to me straight. So do you think it's important that people know where the MARTINI came from God. No, no, no one no one needs to know any of this. I mean, if you're if you're enjoying yourself at my bar. That's really all I care about..

"This is bay curious, the podcast where he answer questions about the bay area. But one question we've never really answered, what is the bay area. I'm a Yellen price here in studio with Jessica plot check. Hello. So we've received this question a lot over the years. It's a phrase you see, and you hear all the time bay area, but what does it mean? You know, having grown up in the bay area, Mike concept is kind of what they discuss on the news. The official definition is the nine county definition. That's Kristen Goldthorpe of Fremont. She asked a question and she asked it because she and her nephew chase Ostermann have been fighting about it or if you're in an area where you see saltwater taster that the area, if you have a bridge, if you get fog because fog is from the bay in that's bay area for chase, Pleasanton is not the bay area because you can't see the bay from there which some people would find really upsetting. Now chasing Kristen aren't the only people who disagree. I went to the San Jose farmer's market a little while ago and asked a bunch of people there how they. They define the bay area and I got a bunch of different answers. There is like the capitol for like politics and like new laws or things that are happening at the most technologically advanced city and probably civilization or has ever seen going up and Morgan hill, and nobody knows where Morgan hill is by always had this feeling like, hey, like we're, we're part of the beer you to like, we can't. I know we're just farms and stuff, but we count all the people and events that happened that thick dewine. Now, yet ten months can find how you did the Bay. I don't have any good answers. I don't know soon. You might know we'll see what we can find. Part of what makes defining the region hard is we have three central cities, right? Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco. But for some even those cities are questionable like my roommate doesn't count San Jose, the biggest city in the region because so far it's not a long barked. Her idea of the bay area and chase says that it should belong to another region. Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is definitely in the bay area. Yeah. But data analysts do sometimes groups San Francisco and Oakland as a separate metro area from San Jose, then how should we be thinking about this? Let's start with when we first started using the term. References to the San Francisco Bay area. I started showing up in the early nineteen hundreds, although the borders weren't consistent and sometimes included Santa Cruz and San Joaquin counties during and after World War Two is the region was growing very quickly. And a lot of the industrial development of the region was happening along the bay shoreline. This is a gun Turpin the regional planning director at spur a bay area civic organization. He says urban planners during World War Two looked at the region as nine counties, and that definition stuck the nine county definition that's Alameda contra Costa Marin Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara Solano and son Noma who that's a lot to remember. So we made you a jingle. Dale. Good luck getting that out of your head today. These counties include one hundred one cities about seven thousand square miles, an estimated seven point seven million people. And while the nine counties is what regional agencies us, that's not the final word. There's no kind of perfect definition of what a region is, but it really depends what it is trying to define. The boundaries might come down to why you're looking at the bay area. We could look at how the bay area is experienced as this region has gotten exorbitantly expensive. People continued to move further out both within those nine counties and then to adjacent counties. If you look at a map of where people are commuting from, you'll see lots of people coming from Stockton, Modesto, even Santa Cruz and Sacramento, meaning they are part of the bay area of hybrid. But at a certain point, if we just keep. Expanding and expanding doesn't the term start to lose its meaning? I mean, how much can seven point seven million people really have in common good point. Often when people talk about the bay area, they're talking about a cultural place and it does get really interesting if we try to draw borders using culture. For example, let's try to define it by food. Here's grace. Chung of cake. UD's bay area bites. You have Californian cuisine, which could be farm-to-table, but then you also have a lot of people bringing cuisines from different countries. There isn't one distinct flavor where kind of defined by how diverse our food is true. Hey, but what about sports dump nation? Wherever you find Golden State Warriors fans, maybe that's the bad. I actually liked that one, but you can definitely find fans out in Fresno or even city. Okay. Well, what about our music. Lynch. I'm glad you asked there are loads of rappers like forty who shout out the bay area.
