The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers

"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

Mysterious Tourist Resort Deaths

"The dominican republic is a jewel floating in the caribbean visitors to the island. Come looking for paradise in its verdant rainforests and white sand beaches more often than not they find it and then they tell their friends. Tourism is a massive industry in the dominican republic. In fact around twenty percent of the nation's gross domestic product comes from foreign visitors though the population numbers just ten million people dominicans. Welcome more than six million vacationers every year. Almost half of them come from the united states in two thousand eighteen. A disturbing trend began among the tourists. One that would go unnoticed for almost a year. Someone or something was killing them in june that year a fifty one year old. Pennsylvania resident named yvette monet export on her first vacation in years. Yvette was excited to finally relax at the luxurious by principal resort in punta cana. Little did she know it would be her final holiday. One evening event in her fiance had a drink from their room's minibar before going to bed in the middle of the night her partner hurting gurgling sound thinking nothing of it he turned over and went back to sleep but when he woke he that was dead. Yvette was just the first in a string of tragedies. The following month of forty five year old man named david harrison traveled to the dominican with his wife. Dawn they state at a different resort. But like yvette. David seemingly had a target on his back one day. He returned from snorkeling saying he felt unwell after he dawn fell asleep. The unthinkable happened. David woke in a cold sweat. Unable to move his wife tried to get help but it was too late. David had suffered a heart attack which caused his lungs to fill with fluids. I condition known as pulmonary dima. He didn't survive as two thousand. Eighteen ended it. Seemed like yvette. And david were to random fatalities but in early two thousand nineteen four. More people died seventy eight year old jerry current in january thirty one year old tracy jerome gesture junior in march and sixty five year old john corcoran and sixty seven year. Old robert wallace. In april each of these tragedies were reported to the authorities but no one made any connection between them until forty one year old miranda shop werner on may twenty fifth two thousand nineteen miranda arrived at the bahia principe bougainville resort with her husband. Dan the getaway was to celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary. They hadn't been in their room. Long maranda took a drink from the mini bar. But after her first sip she suddenly convulsed she cried out for her husband and fell backwards onto the bed where she writhed in agony before passing out. Dan swiftly called the paramedics. Dan himself was a doctor. So he searched for miranda's polls he could barely feel it. He administered cpr until the emt's arrived. But neither he nor the medics could revive her. Miranda was declared dead on the scene the victim of a heart attack though miranda did have a history of cardiac issues. Her relatives back in pennsylvania had doubts as to whether they had killed her and their suspicion grew when they learned she had taken a drink from the mini bar right before collapsing. They took it as evidence that something else was a foot in just five days later it seemed they were proven right on may thirtieth at the bahia principe romana hotel staff entered a room to clean. They found two guests lying on the floor unresponsive. The housekeepers rushed to get help but it was too late. The couple was already long dead. The resort identified the bodies as sixty three year. Old edward homes and forty nine year old. Cynthia day of maryland. The pair had been scheduled to check out earlier that day. An autopsy revealed they had eerily died from the same cause as david harrison pulmonary dima. All three were cardiac related deaths in which fluid filled their lungs. But in edward and cynthia's case no one called for help. If their hearts gave out at different times one of them should have been able to dial reception but there was no call indicating the two people suffered identical heart attacks at the exact same moment with three dead guests in under a week. The bahia principe chain realized they needed to get ahead of the press. The hotel company released a statement stressing that they were doing everything they could to help the families of the deceased and they would cooperate with local authorities to determine if there was any link between their deaths

You know as a people. Do we want to be together or do we want to be divided. Do we want to stand strong or in the caribbean be wrong in strong. I don't know. I guess other people say that too because that could really make anyone including myself just really be annoyed very quickly but it's about pivoting it's about going back up and seeing the brighter side seeing the other side that picks us up and dozen.

Kamal Jared was born in Jamaica grew up in Milton, saying his family's background got him started in cooking. And then it took off from there.

Cuba is working on a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine program

"Cuba. The Communist run Caribbean island is soon to launch the third phase of clinical trials on its own Corona virus vaccine produced by government scientists. Government hopes the vaccine will not only end Cuba's cove in 19 crisis but become an important source of revenue for the cash strapped nation. Austria. Cuba had largely contained the outbreak. But after the country reopened to tourism, the number of daily infections and Corona virus related deaths rose to its highest point. So far from Havana will grant reports Some of the equipment Havana's Finley Institute, maybe a little outdated, but the science itself is cutting edge. This hundreds of vials passed through a sorting machine. They're part of Cuba's greatest hope for a solution to its Corona virus crisis. So but on a DOS Cuba's domestically produced cove in 19 vaccine made entirely in Cuba by Cuban researchers, so banana dos is a conjugal vaccine, meaning and androgynous fused to a carrier molecule to bolster the vaccine, stability and effectiveness. The island has much experience in this field. Having developed the meningitis B vaccine in the late 19 eighties with the same approach. Certainly the Communist run government his confidence so, but Anna dos is. The solution is already in phase two clinical trials and they aimed to vaccinate everyone on the island by the end of the year. In fact, says the director of the Finley Institute doctor, they sent their various Bencomo. There are ambitious plans to export it to the rest of Latin America commercial for what we're trying to have. In the order of $100 million during 2021. And totally will dedicate report of part of these doses to the full immunization of the country. That to happen, it will need the help of other nations. Doctor very says it's too early in the relationship with the Biden administration for the US to play a role just yet. Our make Europe Canada, So we have people participating in our drama from Italy and France. Fortunately, not today with the U. S. We hope that in the next fishery will be possible. We moved to a next step off rotation collaboration. And after, and Vasa pride, Barcelona Open son I don't know what for many Cubans, the vaccine can't come soon enough. The outbreak in Cuba was largely contained by the middle of last year after the government imposed strict measures from a curfew in Havana to daughter door health checks and an aggressive track and trace program. Anyone merely showing symptoms was placed into state run quarantine centers as well as anyone returning from abroad. Almost all flights were halted and tourism, the lifeblood of the island's economy, ground to a halt. However, eventually the economic picture became so bleak the government had to re open. Now visitors must take an obligatory PCR test at the airport and least in theory remain in home Quarantine for a day's Since the re opening, though the transmission figures in Corona virus related deaths in Cuba have crept up to their worst point since the pandemic began, one of the other girl, all those rebel in the government's daily televised updates, the covert 19 statistics have steadily risen to more than 1000 cases a day tiny in comparison to some nations like Mexico, Brazil or the U. S. It's still more than is comfortable for Cuba's overstretched health service has the island simply can't afford to buy millions of doses of an internationally produced vaccine, even from allies like Russia or China? The pressure is on the scientists working on sobered Anna dos. As Cuba's economic slump worsens. There are long queues outside most stores as people search for scarce basic goods. The recent coronavirus spike prompted the government to close down the tourism sector. Once again without millions of free spending visitors in the hotels, bars and restaurants, Cuba is hurting economically more now than at any other time since the end of the Cold War. So Madonna means sovereignty in Spanish and the government hopes the vaccine bearing that name will not only alleviate the island's health crisis, but its economic one,

Cuba: a vintage playground

"Type freida. Hey carmen. what's up. I am convinced. Let's go to cuba carmen. Then go to cuba freedom. Yeah have never been as adults. Were both born in cuba. I've went back to cuba. When i was seven and when i was ten with my family but i haven't been back since then. I haven't ever been back ever since i left. So this episode deals with a question that we get asked a law when anyone learns that. We are cuban specifically that we were born there three days. Have you ever been back. Inevitably what we hear the most is. I want to go to cuba changes and this is so low added a lot of the times. I don't really know what to respond to that. I kind of just smile and say oh. Yeah that's that's interesting. And then i turned to subjects. Let's break it down so the first part. I want to go to cuba for some people. You can stop the sentence there and it's already a problem. I want to go to cuba. Those are folks who are typically in the pro embargo anti travel camp. Just saying that to a cuban american. Who's in that camp will cause some tension but saying that you want to go before it changes. I think illicit something even people who feel more comfortable end and actually might even encourage the idea of engagement and interaction between the two countries. The us in cuba. Because it suggests that you don't want cue to change the group of people that are saying this that they want to keep it before it changes those. Those people are not cuban those people are gingas or they're latinos. That are living in the us but this is a very us centric point of view because lots of people have been vacationing cuba for a very long time namely the canadians. People from the uk spaniards even australians. Make that track. Lots of people go to cuba. And it's not so taboo or forbidden. So cuban americans specifically cuban-americans with family in the island have been able to go to cuba for the entirety of time line. Were about to describe. Tourism to cuba can be divided. I think into three different stages. The first one is before nineteen fifty-nine before the revolution where americans were traveling to cuba nonstop. No problems if you've ever been to the keys of florida or key west. It's ninety miles from cuba and to this day if you travel there you see a bunch of old posters from the nineteen fifties and nineteen forty s. I traveled to cuba. Four dollar. cuba was open to americans end. Americans were coming in partying beautiful island and it was easy and cheap from key us then came the revolution and things changed entirely. Cuba didn't even think about tourism until almost the fall of the soviet union because it was out there in the middle of the caribbean trying to build entirely new indifferent economy who has time for tourism. After the fall of the soviet union cuba started to rebuild its tourist economy restrictions for americans. Traveling to cuba have existed since the embargo. Which has been in place since nineteen sixty two so the embargo the set of sanctions placed by the united states on cuba. The intention of the embargo. According to the united states is to encourage via sanctions for the cuban government and not be communist and potentially become democratic. Some of the restrictions include other countries not being able to trade with cuba for fear of consequences placed by the united states. Americans have not really been able to travel to cuba unless you're going for a very coordinated trip for example. A student trip or church trip in two thousand sixteen obama came out and said that americans be able to travel to cuba. I do not believe we can keep doing the same thing for over five decades and expect a different result. Moreover does not serve america's interests or the cuban people to try to push cuba towards collapse rushed to go. That's when people decided that they needed to go if they were going to go before. It changes recording this. In february of twenty twenty one trump reversed obama's policies travel restrictions returned for americans and right before trump leaves office. Cuba was placed back on the list of state. Sponsors of terrorism

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif: From Super Bowl Champ to the COVID Frontline

"He actually got his medical degree back in two thousand eighteen. My ultimate goal is to step on this deal with the md back pocket nigger dowdy. And he's the only active. Nfl player with a medical degree today. When the pandemic hit laurent decided that you know what. I wanna volunteer. Have this degree wanna be able to help out by. Read more about what was going on immediately. My thought when from oh my god this is stuff for me to. How can i help. Long-term healthcare facilities nursing homes. They were the hardest especially in the quebec area. Also in ontario where i am from. So laurent saw the stress that was put on the healthcare workers and he was like if i can just get in there and alleviate some of the stress on them as well as you know lifting up the spirits of some of the most at risk patients in the elderly. I'm going to do anything. i can possibly do. Our duty as a citizen to really think about what. Can i do to fight this thing. Just that biographical detail alone is crazy that this is a guy who managed to get a degree in medicine while playing right guard in the nfl and playing by the way really well. The chiefs signed him a couple of years ago to a five-year forty one million dollar contract extension but to get back to his medical career. I mean it speaks to this very unusual path. That laurent has taken to the league. So tell us. Where laurent from. And how do you grow up. Laurent is from a town outside of montreal. Thirty minutes outside of montreal. Mount saint hilaire quebec is obviously predominantly french-speaking part of canada and he grew up. Speaking french is first language. His parents were like you know. We want to do things different. I'm mired win. My parents raise me. They told me when i was a kid to take risks to take his dad who is a teacher and agriculture. Actually said you know what my dream to be able to sail down the coast with my family for a year long sailing trip so he quits his job him and his wife dee land along with iran his two sisters gotten a boat and sailed down the coast for a year all the way down to the east coast of the united states. Right down to the caribbean while he was there he was home schooled by his parents while he actually learned different life experiences. So they're sailing up and down the atlantic coast. What do they do when they're not in a boat like what's their business how they make a living laurent's grandfather owned a winery francois.

You know it's funny, because we as people as Black Caribbean, we've been disconnected from the continent for so long, but I feel that we in a general sense are very excited to even claim or adding on who what have. Remnants of Africa that we have.

It depends on also what you're versions but for me Growing up in Jamaica is heavy in you know son all year around having been doors playing with all of your cousins and uh-huh having like a big family which is an extended family or friends of immediate family going to the Beach Joe's us being able to explore so for me. That was a big part of growing up. We know that the Caribbean is more than peaches. Che's and Henry Guy Music that it's real then from that doesn't like an idyllic childhood but take us through the diversity. It's not just white sand and clear. Would it really isn't just Son Sen.

Saint Vincent all the way to Trinidad Tobago Within their also you know other Alands like summer song that is explained with my sneak. Guadalupe as well You also have Dutch side of Saint Eight Martin and Suriname which is we also like to reclaim Surinam. We do share a history so you have language differences across the Caribbean you also have different ethnicities because of our history. Jimmy As an example we have a large large a group of Chinese Chinese population in Jamaica. We have a big Indian community we also have of course persons of African descent We also have you know persons who are white but I would say one of the big for me than interesting part of the Caribbean. Is that while you have. This really is a melting pot of cultures. So or Chinese community comes together. With Sir Indian community with our Africare community to create the Jamaican culture. And this weekend see across the Caribbean so you can see through our food. You you know that recreate so we have curry's are big parts of or cuisine. He can also see through our music. In terms of we have different. We have carnival L.. which talks about so-called economies into Calypso? You can also have reggae dancehall zoo so for me.

We have to look at basically the narrative additive josh of way duties u._s. hers territory standing american political cultural lance landscape. I think that as aversion on there's a puerto rican i mean you think to yourself. Where do we fit. Where do we do fitness now. I think we need to be needs to it'd be reinvented because if you call is josh let's just be honest when you think about the first nonce puerto rico and the caribbean you'll see people you see a vacation and i think i think that's kind of why we were neglected innocence because you really don't know who we are. You know our views are music and food but people the spirit of we are <hes> quite frankly is what enabled us to survive. That's what enabled us to survive because we're still kind of off the grid right also a lot of what we're discussing here. I can't even fully explain because this is all new we face the tragedy that was unprecedented and it's it's people who spirit cana led the way so everything we're discussing his new because we really we have to reinvent who we are. In these islands within the political ascii do the rest of our countrymen and countrywomen. We belong right. Just let us know well miguel. Let us know if we belong to get. I think it's even more difficult you know. We've had this conversation on this program as well that you know there were some americans and political leaders who kind couldn't put together that puerto rico was not another country that it was a u._s. Territory said he met with the president of the virgin islands right right and i think miguel unless you live in part of the country like say south florida where there is a diaspora of people who are shoulder-to-shoulder who are from the virgin islands the bahamas jamaica barbados antigua barbuda uh-huh from all over the caribbean ashra. It may not click for you that this is something other than a vacation spot over there and i think we the way i i always communicate. The importance of you know. White white is someone in the mainland care about puerto rico and the virgin islands. I think what we always mention russian as we are inextricably linked as a community you know the puerto rico produces more than eighty percent of ivy backs for our nation and and so at intravenous medical bag yes selene back so at any given point after those three months after maria you had counties that were within within one school shooting away of having a major shortage of i._b.

They need to be able to make changes to communities now. Aren't these the kinds of data. Mcgill that the utilities themselves should have. I mean you would think that they would know where the lights are on and where the lights are off. Well currently publicly available utility that does not meet the needs of all people involved in disasters and if you think about countries that may not eating have protocols smart meters you you know you're gonna consistently lean on global satellite measurements that are taken for long periods of time as a proxy for recovery and so that's what we do with the earth institute we work with nasa we work with foundations and anyone who's on the ground to be able to turn those raw pixels into useful data so we're talking about those old fashioned meter to still have that little dial that goes you have to go out and physically read it but if you can't get to where the meter is no data and we've learned so much watches a result of monitoring recovery using satellites one of the things that we learned in puerto rico's. We still don't have a standard addressing system to locate rural communities so so you may have femur coming in big checks to hand over to people to get back on their feet but if they can identify their homes because they only have an h._m._o.

"A._m. Till nine thirty during the see days and we we only actually try to was right during this trip on the worry last day but it was a very relaxing news gray most us us to order breakfast meal grilled what the pancakes reasoning leads it's and it was very relaxing and good quality food and yeah nice atmosphere. You had a nice view the ocean and typically you know for breakfast or for things you have a buffet right so you stand in line and you wait your turn and you got to fight to find a table and fight to get your drinks. Sometimes it can depending on what time you're waking up. There could be hundreds of people there in front of you. That's the only thing that i had <hes> the negatives that i experienced in the past three or four cruises. Was this before booking the sweet that the breakfast time sometimes we had the challenge of finding a table for five again during the peak hours especially if you have a tour and you kind of rush somewhere on time away but <hes> just finish finish it off on the benefits as part of the booking looking of sweet category stateroom you'll also get the private seating area for lunchtime hors d'oeuvres and cocktails in morning morning and in the <hes> during the lounge hours the cocktail hours and complimentary room service. I thought the room service used to be part of the base. Fee that you pay but nowadays i guess it's not with the royal caribbean so you will pay like a bucks per order or something and then with tip tips but in this case the room service twenty four hour was complimentary for sweet which was nice gas especially if you didn't want to wake up and fight you know for a table the order room service before we're going on an excursion and it came and it was timed accordingly perfect way and reserved v._i._p. Seats for productions in ice shows so if you think about booking to stay rooms normally write an compared to reserve in the swedes and with all these benefits right right cost-saving perks. You should do some comparison. Yeah opinion that a mike come pretty close yeah and especially. I mean if you're going to be you if you're going to get a state room. They do have drink packages available. I like yeah. I mean you can get expensive. Just soda for kids or you can get alcohol hall for the adults and the alcohol. I mean it breaks. Even if you're going to be doing like five or six drinks a day and i mean more to cruise to get drunk everyday. Go right ahead but maybe you want to do some excursions to something else. I don't know <hes> for us. It just didn't seem worth it to spend that much because we weren't going to drink that much a couple of drinks here and there maybe a glass of wine with dinner that sort of thing once we edit it up it really didn't it wasn't economical to go that route to chop yes and then our kids kids most of them. Don't drink soda so anyway yeah so so something to consider. We had a great experience at the you know in an in and out getting on board you get the v._i._p. Status you in the same category as the highest status membership wise shorter law line to get in on board in you also get the fabio was our concierge. You get the help from him on various s. things fabio he was there to help us. I mean it was really quite quite nice. Guy could help us out with like like <hes> the excursions or whatever it was that we need these problems with the tours oil you know exactly so continuing on pros for for me crews why i like cruises you only pack unpack ones on and then get to visit multiple countries that that's going to be a league like a plus for me here you are you're in a floating hotel. It is a hotel and you're going from place to place which is kind of cool unlike land excursions. Were you get a hotel and you get a pack and unpack and then you get on the bus and have your luggage with you. The whole time. It's a little cumbersome yes and tours option and all you again with the royal caribbean there other seven or whether the region or other silver see in our including tours yeah but yeah the tours are usually not included and those are optional for with the royal caribbean but tours are not cheap but they happing fantastic yeah in. That's another interesting interesting thing. I mean you're going to ports of call and they're going to take you to ports that. Are you know interesting touristy. Blah blah blah blah blah. You have the option of you know getting off the ship and finding your our own way organizing your own tours and that sort of thing or you can organize tours or what they call excursions right from royal caribbean and what are the benefits of doing doing it right from royal caribbean. You get right off the boats your met right there. I'm big issue right on and off the the cruise right from the port. Everything's very well. Organized organized a clockwork think you don't have to do anything to show up and they take you were aaron t they will not leave you grab you know leave without you. Do you think the royal caribbean tours and in it's guaranteed never missed the boat but we have actually seen their other cheaper stores source. You're right that you can purchase once you get off the bore <hes> get off the boat and then there are bunch of people right waiting and dan. Do you want to earn and you're going to purchase the day tour with bob but they are some cases that that tour company don't don't come back to what happens. What happens if you missed the boat what happens if it takes off and you're not on it. You have to pay on your own to catch up you. Gotta find a way to get back to the next report to catch up to the boat because it will not wait for you. It is again like clockwork it pulls into port and it leaves port and if you're on the boat or off the boat that that doesn't stop them from leaving so another nice thing about booking excursions through royal caribbean or through the cruise ship is to your point airy. They're guaranteed to get you back to the boat before the boat is due to depart right so that's that's important to know it is a little expense or i guess you could say it's pricey but it's pricey easy for the conveyance stories and we liked that safety corral like a piece of mind yeah and another thing that i would say is there's so many options on the ship right. You can just chill on the ship. We want to or take optional tours. I and i think it's multi generational travel. If you're looking for that sort of thing true true yeah maybe family reunion or whatnot latte not <hes> you know. There's something for younger kids because the kids club in my opinion they're very well organized dude and they have teens club with older kids. They're like a mid teens and then there's the kids kids club like seventy zero six year old baby. There's an infant's club club and so oh parents can get arrest. Even if you have infant <hes> right i find it. This is one of the times that when we go cruises we get to work out jim. That's right and that's really nice. There's a tracks way if you wanna just jog or right and the weight rooms and when spa is is one thing i just don't do is really swim in that poor. That's the least favorite activity of mine mine on the cruise but that's not what i'm after. I'm after you know getting off the ship and in each port of call and explore right entries that's to me. It's exciting in again only on pack ones and we talked about the sweet life. It's what they call a royal caribbean. All the perks harks that comes with the family sweet <hes> category rooms so to me. Those are the pros. I missed that anything i i would think that again. After you've done a couple of trips with them you start to increase status as well in the higher the status the more other amenities start coming coming along with it too so if you're interested in cruises you know just like what we recommend with regards to airlines or to hotel chains find one that you like and stick with it because because the higher the status the more the perks that come along because if you spread out you have to really do so many cruises right individual individuals who accumulate the status and yet to your point a so yeah before you if you haven't done cruises before long just compare what will be the best fit. Do you have kids. I how old are they all grownups and they're in college so you really don't need to worry because there's yeah please club and stuff. Do you wanna all inclusive right and then <hes> the silver see or other cruise lines they they are all inclusive so through clientele might be a little bit very different until that was interesting. Remember were green rubel. They were talking about clienteles from. I think it was carnival. We move onto details but yeah what what we heard was just the different different clientele and in a i think the other one is a whole on america yeah so it was interesting to hear certain clientele attracts. I mean certain cruise lines attract certain clientele and to us for what we are after royal caribbean really work well for us into your point. It's we've seen a lot the multi generational travelers they're right or you have grandparents with parents with kids and everyone seems to i mean i. It seems accommodating for all types. <hes> in the other thing is again you look at the types of excursions that they offer the types of shore excursions that places that they're going to go to you know it's it's. It's it's one thing to have a cruise ship where you're just gonna hang out. You're going to stay at the pool where you're going to get drunk. Blah blah blah blah blah that certainly is appealing to certain people but for us that wasn't what was appealing about the cruises was going to different ports of destination and getting a chance to experience things so for us. It was important to choose a cruise line that offered good excursions it had great not no extra charge if you will shore excursions interesting places a port that they went to and based on the recommendations and based on are looking at the clientele line tell. We thought let's let's give royal caribbean shot and boy we. We've been happy with it so far. We've been so happy we did a baltic yes we we did the mediterranean detailing so that was in and out of a ball salona and we went to the italian the french riviera today talion coast to the mediterranean turkey turkey greece. That was a fantastic credible. We did caribbean twice as one was to the eastern caribbean. This time is the southern caribbean so just the movement onto cons. Yes there is a type of travel and so if i may start those to me pool area can be crowded. You kind of talked about that a little bit too yeah a lot of kids. Go pee well. I would imagine a lot of adults are doing the same thing i have never did. I don't think people hanging out author drinking having a good time how many of them actually leaving the do something. I am not paying attention. Anyway is not my favorite room section section but also i was going to say i do not find cruise to a cheap necessarily because things can at least with the royal caribbean. Yes you can get the cheapest state room. We kinda like the balcony room. I i time sailing. I was actually pregnant so to me was important. I know i'm going to stay in the in the state room..

"The five worse things about a Caribbean cruise. Hi, I'm Gary benbridge. And this is another of my tips for travelers one of the best things about cruising, the Caribbean. Is there are three different main itenerary? So even if you've been on a Caribbean cruise before there is another one at another alternative that you can go on Brody speaking, there is the eastern Caribbean, the western Caribbean and southern Caribbean cruises. So the eastern Caribbean covers nor replaced like the Bahamas the Cayman Islands Haiti Dominican Republic, the US and British Virgin Islands, Puerto, Rico and Dutch Sint Martin ninety a western Caribbean. Some of the places you could go to include Jamaica, the Cayman Islands is using -cluded Mexico, Cozumel and customize sometimes Belize the Honduran island of Rotan also increase in the your find that Cuba's so have Anna and sent yoga Cuba. Are often now included in those attorneys as well. The other development is increasingly there are cruises which only go to Cuba. So you can often do seven night cruises out of Miami. Which Otago go to Cuba? The southern Caribbean goes to places like Saint kits and Tieger quite a loop Martinique Dominica and Lucia Barbados Grenada sin FinCEN, and the Grenadines most of the cruises to the Caribbean tend to be seven night cruises. Another great thing about the Carribean. Cruise is choice. So yeah. The choice of ten years, but you also have an enormous choice of cruise lines and style of ship to go on there's up to twenty four different cruise lines that actually visit the Caribbean some form or fashion during the course of the year.

"It self is considering the third most important global hubs ups, and you know, dies because of these assemblies of unique habitats unique species, which really helped to support this unique unique systems really while that is actually a very remarkable fact that I was unaware of. So this is a biodiversity hotspot, and that's a big point of concern. Obviously you're here today. Talking about what's being done to kind of understand the threats to vegetation. So big picture thinking about the Caribbean, especially as tourism hotspot, what are the major threats to the floor of this region. Is it easy to characterize changed over the years? Well, it changed over the years because you know, until there was calling his -ation in these places. They will would've been primary forest pretty much covering all these islands. And then when Europeans reached these places may start to. Planting cotton and sugarcane and the crops basically in some places almost destroys the entire primary force when this crops got abandon the forest recover. Some of it. I've never recovered. And now we have would three have most of these places will be secondary forest. But now the forest phase other kinds of threats. So we talk about tourism to raise me something as important that has a livelihood. But muster reason can also lead to uncontrolled development. And you know, give you an example win, for instance, mangroves in extremely important to hold storm surges and the mangroves are on the coasts, which are places where people like to build the hotels, big resources. So sometimes they up up of station the stuff as more if people don't have a concern about you know, what to destroy in what the process. Don't think about the consequences of that. So the might just read savvy lead we losing suitable habitat for the species because not know the places, but uncontrolled development leads to listen this hobby dots. We also having problems with the invasive species which bowl team has exulted cleanse either full landscape bull trade for foods, and they grew on control than now they actually threatening the habitat of these ninety species. So I would say those two of probably the biggest flights that Zain the blunts from the overstay steady doors in the Caribbean in probably the Caribbean countries, which I don't know that we'll place the moment, and you could actually say climate change. It's a threat that we we not really sure we unknown with ring will doing the future. So the to the vegetation. Yes, it's arming think about that. Especially again in the context of hurricanes in sealer rise in all of those other things and then on top of that just the small surface area. Lancer physi- available in again, the rampant human development, and I'm curious to is thinking about farming verses tourism here. It sounds to me like, or at least my assumption would be that farming would have done more widespread damage back in the day. But now tourism in the Caribbean being in oceanic island or set of islands. It seems like, you know, probably be areas that are now today hit harder than they were in the past. So like, you mentioned mangoes is a lot of that development. Pretty much centered around the coast in then whatever invasive species get brought in can then spread out into the rest of the countryside. Yes. Yes. That that's because people to leave NIA in wave is infrastructure..

"Four. Traveler, and I am here in the Conde nast podcast. Ios with David Jeffries and Megan's barrel who are both editors for traveler, and we have the triumphant return of Mark Ella. Well, no, of course we've been waiting for you. Mark is well known to podcast listeners, but he hasn't been on a little while. He's been traveling strangely enough. I often I'm dialing in from some weird airport and it's so nice as they hit with a cocktail with all of you. Nice cocktails. Yes. And. I'm Brad Rickman. Just assume everybody knows from the sound of my voice. Our today is going to be the Caribbean and hurricane season, and so we are appropriately enough drinking mount gay, Barbados, rum. You wanna. You want to describe the providence of the Barbados rum. Where'd you get this room? Megan, this rum is actually from Miss Universe far betas to pass through our office as the other day. And I came out of that meeting with the great rum punch recipe, and I took a picture next to her. That was very unfortunate for me. That you don't. State was not good. Okay. So I have a question to set the stage for everybody. When is hurricane season, when did it start? When does it finish as Timberlake Tober or the main months to to be wary of travelling to areas that are prone to hurricane? Basically, once our summa ends. So Labor Day, hurricane season really kicks in and September, October all the times you really have to pay attention. Often. There will be hurricanes outside those two windows because mother nature doesn't follow calendar, but that's a good approximation, September October, but keep bureaus in August and member. I've always been confused about this, so forgive the navy of this, but we just heard about a hurricane in the Pacific. And I always thought that they were called typhoons in the Pacific and hurricanes in the Atlantic. And yet we had a hurricane up. That's a great question. And I, I don't know. I wonder if any of our listeners can tell us why Hawaii gets hurricanes role than. My phone's because I thought the rule was Australia gets typhoons exactly. The rule was Japan line that's beyond Hawaii or Japan. The other way that's. Oh, so it's dotted line where this change is happening keeping northern hemisphere southern hemisphere because the dateline, the dateline, Africa back, throw this. I know that they've saved me. I always remember. Great. Listen explained to me why San Francisco's weather is good in September and October. Please tell us about what those hurricane rules because I don't know I wanted why Hawaii was having our gains. So thank you for bringing that up. Okay. I'm happy to have you service you with my ignorance. I, we think it's the day putting my money on dateline, just Intel. Is how. Right? Is it the dateline? You wanna put some money on it or as a as a follow up to what Mark was saying. This is the time to keep an eye on whether maps and weather reports. There's a storm brewing out in the Atlantic. These storms form of west Africa, Dakar and the flying off through Cape Verde and you really won't know until they're about halfway little bit more cross open seas what they're up to. There's one out there right now, and if it is name to be called Florence. They have in reserve every year..
