I got lucky because the cats are like super sweet and really. I don't know one of them is almost like a dog like they'd be. He likes to cuddle. And come up to me and all this kind of stuff but then when it comes to train them to get off. My kitchen counter has been very difficult. I tried putting like some of the tape down. I tried like a pen and a cup read that you could like make a noise and trains them not to do it. But now one of them doesn't really care about that either so I don't know if you have advice there anybody else's dealing with the same thing that I know I'm sorry I don't. I don't I'm unfortunately not a capture sick. I feel like cats consensus on me when I'm seeing them. They're like yeah. This girl is not here for it and I'm like I can't help it.

White vs. Wheat: The Food Fight of the Centuries
"To make white flower. You have to get everything brown out. That's the brand or the outside part of the wheat kernel as well as the Brown inside part called the wheat germ. What's left is the stuff in between. That's white white. Flour might seem like something modern and industrial. But actually people have been separating out the wheat bran and the wheat germ for a really long time and people had the the ability to sift and separate brand from flower for a long time if they had the power to command the Labor that it took so there are mentions of something like shining white bread going way back in history. This is Aaron. Bob Ro strain. He's a professor of politics at Whitman. College and the author of a book called White Bread. A social history of the store bought low. Farren says back in history. It took a long time and a lot of human power to manually Diaz colonels and sift flower to get it fine white so why would rich people bother? What was great about white flour so if you look back in time white bread white flour was an elite product. Because it meant there weren't sticks and rodent droppings and dirt in it things like that and say and Steve Jones is a wheat breeder and head of the bread lab at Washington State University. Okay so if you are rich in the past your flower might be hand cleaned while it was being hint sifted so there would be nowhere for rap to hide and all that shining whiteness but would it have also tasted better. We know Steve is creeped out by white flour but AARON SAYS WHITE. Bread has some advantages. Well I mean some people would argue that. It tastes finer. You can get a softer later loaf. As a result of that rich people could and did make white bread but it wasn't just fluffier and cleaner whitebread quickly took on a bigger symbolic meaning. It very quickly goes from being a question of taste to being a question of how bread mark certain people as affluent or powerful. And for as long as there's been white lower there's also been a debate about it not just what it means but also whether or not we should be eating it. White versus wheat is one of the first recorded. Food fights in history. Plato and ancient Greek philosopher had students debate whether the ideal city should be fed on refined white bread or gritty whole grain porridge. The debate wasn't really about what's for breakfast. Of course it was about whether city-dwellers somehow lost something important. Some essential grit just by living in a city and these debates around bread have been going on so long and so intensely because the stakes are so high. The Biblical phrase bread alone is not far from the truth. Aaron quoting from the Book of Matthew. Here man cannot live by bread alone. But actually the only thing matthew suggests that you need is a top up for your all bread diet is the word of God so really most of your calories. They're still coming from bread. In Europe. For example it would vary by time and place but people in Europe got between say forty to sixty percent of calories from bread from at least the sixteen hundreds to well into the twentieth century in the United States in the Nineteenth Century early twentieth centuries about a third of calories came from bread so it's an incredibly significant food product and even the English word. Lord it's demolished goes back to the phrase bread giver in Old English. The word layoff meant loaf and Boardman Guardian and together. The two words formed Love Board which eventually became Lord the one who ruled over the bread even the word companion is to do with bread and social hierarchy companion comes from Latin the word com which means together with and puffiness which means bread so your companion is the person you're able to share bread with because you're in the same social class so bread has been incredibly important for thousands of years and throughout that time the color of the bread. Signified your social standing. If you were rich you could afford the Labor to make that flower white. The very richest had the very whitest bread and the poor. You're the darker your loaf. Which means that for most of history for most people bread has been brown and it's been pretty damn rustic. Aaron says that was true all the way up to the mid eighteen hundreds in the US and at that point about ninety percent of the bread and the United States was baked at home by women and maybe ten percent was baked All mostly urban bakeries throughout the seventeen hundreds and early eighteen hundreds. The world was industrializing but bread. Pretty much stayed the same until some enterprising. Engineers invented mechanical rollers in the early eighteen. Hundreds Roller Mills meant that bakers could produce white flour and lots of it with minimal effort. These steel rollers were a huge leap forward compared to the old stone mills which really couldn't get wheat very white without a lot of human effort to sift it. Steve showed us a mini roller mill. He hasn't a room in his bread. Lab TURN IT ON. This is basically peeling a kernel of wheat. Like an apple and this type of meal that meant that white flour was no longer just an elite product but the mid eighteen hundreds the masses could afford it to the eighteen fifty s was also the last time the majority of bread was made at home in the US. Just like in. Plato's time people immediately started arguing about whether we all should be eating. This well sifted flour at the same time as those roller mills started coming online. Amandas name you know better. Attached to a similar started to fight against the spread of white bread. Servicer Graham I guess. Today we had maybe Remember him because we associate his name with Graham cracker that some followers named after him crackers aside Silvester was immoral Crusader and food reformer who gathered a huge following during the first half of the eighteen. Hundreds you saw white flour. As denatured product that was out of harmony with creation than would devastate the bodies and souls of those who ate it in flaming their joints and fibers and unhinging their their moral rectitude and call Sylvester Graham America's first significant whitebread critic and his followers certainly bought his argument and avoided white bread at the time the US was going through a major cholera epidemic. And people were desperate for anything to keep them. Healthy and Graham offered exactly that path to health based on. What you individually eight and didn't eat something you could control. As opposed to the public health approach of shared investment in prevention and sanitary water systems. The cholera epidemic eventually ended not because people eat Brown bread of course and while Graham's followers might have continued to eat whole wheat bread the rest of the country. The majority were into this newly inexpensive white flour. Meanwhile white flour and white bread had some big shot advocates of their own so progressivism was a social and political movement of the late Nineteenth early twentieth century. And it believed in the possibility of perfecting the nation. It was a moment. When scientific expertise was rising importance and when there's great concern about the upheaval of the nation. That's produced by massive urbanization. The United States going from being a largely rural country to being largely urban country at the same time that there is large scale immigration happening. The progressive movement was made up of a lot of middle class white women and this was the time when everything was becoming quote scientific babies to be born with doctors and midwives. Home Economics was a science said. Not all of America's newest citizens knew about these modern scientific ideas for domestic hygiene that surgeon immigration that Aaron mentioned those people were coming from eastern and southern Europe and there was a widespread fear in the middle classes that these poor people would bring their traditional ways of baking and running their households with them the progressive reformers thought that new mechanized white flour and newly mechanized bakeries making white bread were pure and safe and a huge step up from uncleaned immigrants who were baking most of the nation's bread at the time and so in that moment and the kind of the production of anxiety around bread and food in general the shining white loaves turned out in by gleaning white factories offered consumers are reassuring sense of safety. Steve Jones the Breeder. Who's so creeped out by any form of white bread that he doesn't like to be in the same room as it. His Own Immigrant. Great uncle ran one of these gleaming white bread factories back in the twenties. So my great uncle's bakery in Newark New Jersey was called the up today bakery years ago. I thought well that meant. He looked in the Polish American dictionary. Modern set up to date the up to date. Bakery was a franchise what it meant and their tagline is human hands. Did Not touch the dough. The human hands were southern and eastern Europeans in many cases so my uncle was to not put his thirty in quotes hands into the
Hostess, the Symbol of Sugary Snacks, Buys Sugarless Cookie Maker
"Can the maker maker of twinkies succeed with sugar free cookies and natural ingredients hostess brands famous for twinkies Ho Hos and Ding dongs is buying workman's bakery a little known Canadian cookie.

That's the epigraph because that's one of the frames through which i look at american behavior and i don't think there's any serious a question that america has committed war crimes consistently over many decades now just as a history lesson for listeners may not be familiar with the nuremberg principles developed after world war-to and we develop them. We were instrumental. The united states was instrumental in developing a nuremberg principles for the nuremberg trials of the nazi leaders.

"Gonna be right along the coast where i am just a little bit south west palm beach while and and <hes> they're able to pinpoint it seventy two hours out and they're able to predict <hes> so we would be what coming in iran downer down more towards fort lauderdale or <hes> somewhere in that area or what do you what's the did they have idea they they have a pretty good idea as they get closer that cone narrows and they got a better shot of where the landfall is but the truth of the matter is the storms can be pretty wide so it's going to affect. Most of the east coast of florida had landfall yeah now. Somebody was asking me this morning. If i thought it would be a direct hit on mar-a-lago lago and if that would be considered inactive god and i said well you know i think i think they're just by sheer physicality of thing. The chances chances are a direct hit on meyer lago because there's a lot of coast down there and <hes> and then that'll be called an act of god so what what do you wanna directed omar overnight. You gotta be careful about these predictions right. Well and i gotta be careful about wishing it on mar-a-lago because i less than a mile from it so yeah ah would be pretty close. That'd be that'd be kind of close your how so let's let's hope that it avoids mar-a-lago altogether by maybe a couple of hundred miles. I gather you would like that. <hes> he already nice. If you know i was watching <hes> you know the weather channel turns out to be you know biggest <hes> cable channel in florida the visas and you know when you when you're watching it and you're watching all those spaghetti models and you're hoping for the one that veers off to the right and goes out to sea but but that one's disappeared this morning so yeah looks like landfall east coast of a long-term florida's not looking good on the climate change maps. What do you think about that yeah. It's it's got some problems. I mean i've even noticed over the last decade or so that you know the the summers are even a little bit hotter than normal we we just had the hottest july on record and in florida so i very there's some to it yeah now even there for years do you. Do you do anything differently this july than you have. In past summers. <hes> spent a lotta time inside on the air conditioning. <hes> you know tried to go to the beach earlier in the morning. <hes> you know it's you know it's those kind kind of adaptations yeah yeah i it seems as though <hes> in but by the way when i mentioned the climate change maps you know you actually look out one hundred years. It's supposedly there's a chance there's a chance that a lot of florida is going to be under water and the water's already not that's part of their concern. This morning is <hes> is what they call tinh thai which is higher than normal high tides most tend to happen towards the end of the month in august and september and <hes> you know bringing inglorious and miami beach is <hes> very concerned about heavy flooding from this scene video footage of of seawater coming up through storm drains and stuff and that that doesn't look like a very good situation no in florida most of florida's. Not you know the highest point in south florida is the broward county landfill at sixty five feet above sea level so aches high because they piled up.

I mean of course this time of year. There's a lot of stuff that that is happening. Along these lines where you you want to get to the town or the county or regional fair obviously the <hes> champlain valley fair is going on right now the champlain valley expedition. I should say the tunbridge fares coming up w._b._z. Today graham show is going to be at the tunbridge fair on september the twelfth. That's actually two weeks from yesterday looking forward to that and i'll try not to eat too much fried dough and but the more more fast sounds like a really cool thing for a small town to do. Are there other similar events other times a year where the community comes out or is this the big one definitely not more town. This is a big one and it's not just for more town. It's it's for everybody. <hes> you know throughout the valley waterbury everybody <hes> the firework show is i'm. I'm a big fireworks fan. I grew up in michigan. I've seen a lot of big shows and waterbury puts on a good show and it's the same people it's northstar that does our fireworks but the location russian is. You're like in a bowl and they're right on top of you so they're very very good. The that is <hes> that sounds like a lot of fun actually and of course northstar is really <hes> becoming quite well known not just in the vermont around the northeast and even up into canada. They just wanna competent. They went up to sherbrooke a few weeks ago and came in second. I think in a in an international competition and the fireworks getting high tech these days their core choreographing them to music music and i know that that's going to be near show but <hes> but they <hes> they are really getting to be more and more <hes> into new technologies applied to that old art of fireworks displays and so that the north stars they are they are a player in that in that realm and they're they're great too because we fundraise for this whole thing to keep it free. Yeah we have sponsors that donate money almost every year but they know that we don't have tens of thousands of dollars to spend on fireworks so they try to accommodate your limited budget. That's that's <hes> another community. Spirited aspect of this thing is is that damore town is doing more fast on a bit of a shoestring and and that's okay you know that's that is part of the challenge in the coming together of a community when everybody sort of gets into that chip it in spirit and pay it forward horrid. Whatever you wanna call it and that's terrific thing so once again. More fast is going to be on september seventh starts at around three pm to dusk winner fireworks <hes> <hes> you know a lot of the traditional fixings of good town fair events for kids the whole family <hes> a beer tent for the grownups and all and all sounds like a lot of fun and <hes> katrina bracket.

It's it's ninety percent families that come because everything's free there's no entry with more take donations and so we thought touch a truck would be an easy addition in and and the kids do love that they know what trucks do you have going in. You know you signed up yeah. There's the there'll be a race car to fire trucks town trucks six the vermont national guard is coming with their climbing wall so i'm hoping that they bring some sort of awesome vehicle play on and the <hes> <hes> that's typically younger kids who get into touch truck thing or is. It are teenagers doing that now. I don't think so i think my ten year old might this might be liked his last leg last week touch okay but that is i've seen that happening before it varies festivals and so on and when you see four a six year old is crawling around on it on these vehicles. It's a and you could just you get a get wind of the joy that they're experienced. It is kind of fun to watch and <hes> so that's that's pretty cool. What about what about food vendors and so we have <hes> we have just a couple of food vendors this year we have a hot dog vendor and then we also have our fire department will do their corn roast and they're going to do <hes> pulled pork and coleslaw as well <hes> come over for that.

It's it's p._t._o. Sponsored it's one of their big fundraisers come in you know they raise for all the programs at the school so in the parents that come with kids what's better than having a beer tent is you gotta have a cold beer and so what what's the <hes> <hes> what what's the craft beer is coming by. Sam otter creek is he did it last year. They'll be back again this year but lawson's has also joined them that share okay. That's that's some pretty stiff competition autocratic and both of them early beers but <hes> i do have a taste for that sipa sunshine pretty darn good and the the <hes> <hes> any any other rides or activities some old fashioned kids games. You know like sack races and three legged races. There's also also <hes> craft vendors. <hes> the there's a few town committees that will have boosts with information and then we have entertainment.

Milder temperatures help firefighters gain on massive California wildfire
"F. a little good news in the effort in. California to contain the state's largest ever wildfire currently some milder temperatures allowed firefighters to make some progress Jim Roope is following, the story joins us now live morning Jim good morning the good news is really one of the two fires. That makes up the Mendocino complex fire which is being called the largest wildfire in California history is seventy percent seventy eight percent. Contained nearly eighty percent contained the other fire, still about only twenty percent contained so that battle rages on but what is probably the worst thing to think about here is that there are seventeen other fires, burning in the state and it's really an incredible inferno poised really to be the worst fire season ever, in, the state of California fourteen thousand firefighters from as far away as New Zealand are in State trying to get some sort of.

Fall so this could be a long haul oh man you just really he just yeah absolutely that the Santa Ana winds this isn't even a. Santa Ana event and we're having these kinds of of fires and this kind of fire behavior activity where it just it explodes through all this.

Haven't had rain we're still not recovered from five years of drought Here even though we had some rain in two thousand sixteen not enough of it got into increase the moisture levels of all this brush that's out there and some of these areas that are burning heaven burned in. Decades especially up in the Mendocino complex. Fire, where, these two fires, are converging, into, one. So it's gonna be a, rough fire season you're right most likely, when those Santa Anna winds coming October it's going to get exponentially worse so firefighters really residents all over California are buckling down especially in the southern part of state waiting for October to arrive along with
