Climate change is affecting flower pigments
"Our flowers reacting to climate change. I'm NPR chief meteorologist. Paul. Hutler here with climate cast. A new study in the journal current biology finds flower pigments are reacting to temperature and ozone changes. What does that mean for our flower colors, Clemson? University. Biology Professor Matthew. Kaczynski is an author of this study. Hi Matthew. Welcome to climate cast hype. All I want to get into the details but I what's your sort of elevator speech headline on climate change and flower colors. Yes. So flowers while one of their functions is to dry in pollinators. Another is actually protect the pollen in the abuse that hold the reproductive structures of the plant. And Pigments can protect Holland inaugurals from abiotic damage like from temperature or UV radiation. So climate change has the strong potential in we showed that it did contribute to changes in flower pigmentation. So for a non biologists like me, how would you explain the physical process increased pigmentation can lead to more absorption of solar radiation in any structure in so win a flower absorbs more light. It has the potential to increase in temperature. and. We found that flowers that have their pollen tucked within the pedals day actually declined in pigmentation when they experienced larger increases in temperature, and that could be a thermal regulatory response where flowers are actually decreasing pigmentation to reduce the chances that they're going to increase in temperature baked their pollen in species that have their pollen exposed to ambient light like a buttercup those when the pedals are open, you can see all of the panthers in those are the structures in the flower that hold the pollen So increasing UV pigmentation in the flowers might protect that pollen from ambient UV, light and so. Some species increased some species decline in pigmentation in some showed no change at all. How were you able to observe that in is a something we could see as visible to our is humans are Tri chromatic that means we see blue green and red, and that's our three photo receptors. Many insect pollinators are also try chromatic, but they see you the blue and green, and so what we measured is these UV absorbing pigments using ultraviolet photography if pollinators see these plans differently, how are these pigment changes impacting them? I've done some studies basically smearing sunscreens over the flowers so they become completely uv absorbing. That often reduces pollinator visitation. In, that might be because the UV reflection on pedals might help the flowers to kind of pop against a green vegetative background. So if it's declining, that could have potentially negative impacts for plant reproduction. So a lot of people like to plant flowers that attract pollinators, what does this mean for the average gardner who might be thinking about flowers for next year as a rule of thumb? It appears that more yellow flowered, plant, sleigh, comment asters, daisies those often are pretty UV reflective. In in terms of some of the common crop species that have UV, reflection on them, canola or ravenous, which is a mustard that is one that has these UV reflective traits on the flowers and then come in sunflower dozen while. Clemson University Biology Professor Matthew Kaczynski. It's a great conversation. Thanks so much for sharing on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.
Micro Wave: Why Some Fruits Ripen Faster In A Paper Bag
"Hey nerds. So today we've got eight special guest short waves, very own producer Brett Hansen Hey Brit. Hello. Hello. This is your first on air shortwave appearance and I am aggressively excited about this I. Know You are yes, it is. Your. And today we've got our latest microwave installment, you know these snappy episodes with a couple of quick signs tidbits, some listener mail, which I very much enjoy reading every morning except for mean. I picture you with Your Cup of coffee and cats just going through the mail. So you've your investigative reporting skills to work on from what I can tell is your favorite topic of all time peaches US yeah I really really love peaches Yeah. I. Don't know if you know this but I do eat one standing over my kitchen sink pretty much every day I. do know that you've told me that Multiple Times Brit actually can't stop talking about it. They're the best part of summer. But now that summer's over, I've been using that paper bag trick to get them ripe. Do you know what I'm talking about you put them unripe and peaches and a paper bag for a couple of days. Take them out will oh yeah. They're ripe I'm doing that trick all the time I'm doing that trick right now actually knew or not I have peaches from the farmers market in a bag trust me. Okay. Well, that's actually what we're going to talk about today I've been using this trick for years, but I had no idea why it works. So I wanted to find out. So today on the show, we talked to a fruit expert about why some fruits like peaches ripen faster in paperback and why others don't. And? This is shortwave. From NPR. Okay Britt. We are talking about why some fruit like peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So who did you talk to? Yeah so I called Juan Carlos Melgar he's a professor and pathologist at Clemson University some people say what's Pamala geology the science that study for three? Yes. So matty, full disclosure I didn't know what a pathologist was before I talked to one Carlos somebody who studied fruit trees shame another thing I didn't know is just how many varieties of peaches there are many take a guess how many do you think there are? A eleven. Okay. Well, eleven is a great number. Tell, it's not right. I could tell. But it is not the right number. Juan Carlos told me that he works with almost three hundred different varieties. There's no three hundred and he says compare that to apples. For instance, a lot of people know dame's varieties apples. Gala. Readily shows or whatever. However, nobody knows varieties features. And that's because they're legal Ten days two weeks bad variety is gone. Wow. You're already in my mind but Hansen. Okay. Each facts are facts I feel like I've been disrespecting peaches up until this point and I, need to change. Okay. So what did you find out about the paper bag trick? Yes. So one Carlo says that there are two key factors to understanding why some fruit including peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So let's start with factor number one beaches produce a gaseous horrible. It's called Italy so. That gashes hormone ethylene is a ripening hormone. So as peaches ripen, they produce a burst of ethylene. So ethylene ripening go hand-in-hand exactly. But it's not just that a ripening peach produces ethylene it also responds to it. So say, for example, you create an environment where a peaches not only producing ethylene, but it's also surrounded by it that right there is the trick to making the peach ripen faster finding away to surround a peach in the gase hormone. I. I'm sorry expect gas or boat. I. Okay. Okay. This is where the paper bag comes in right? Yeah. So you put a peach in a paper bag close it up, and then all of the ethylene it's naturally producing gets captured and starts to accumulate inside the bag which means peach surrounded by ethylene Michael Peach steam room. A. Virtuous. Cycle exactly. That's exactly it's like. Okay. There's another part of this that I thought was pretty cool to arrived impeach. Using lot of athletes could help ripening a piece that is driving yet or not the same banana. Classic example Ou Yeah. So basically, the more ethylene accumulating in the bag, the faster the fruit ripens. So Super Ripe Peach is going to help a really hard peach ripen even faster. If that makes sense personally, I like to call this fruit teamwork. Mattie I think that that's a scientific term. So Okay Br does it matter whether or not you use a paper bag or could you just put the peach in like some other kind of container I actually wondered about this too. So basically, is there something special about the paper bag and this brings us to factor number two respiration? The other characteristics of these fruits is that they have not on the peaking saving. Peaking risk creation there we spiring. Yeah fresh fruit continue to fire or breathe if you will after being harvested so. Even producing carbon dioxide those peaches need that Oxygen Hanson. If. That seal two accumulating, they're they're useless oxygen. refire this. It's going to slow down there. Got It in writing if you wanted to writing to let that go on. Okay. So something that allows like a bit of airflow or just oxygen to be coming in and out. So a plastic bag won't work neither will a tupperware container or anything else that essentially prevents oxygen from getting inside Sudas the paper bag trick work for other fruits too. So it works for some but not all peaches, bananas, tomatoes basically fruits that ripen off the plant after they've been picked. Those are the ones that you can pop into a paper bag. Got It wow Brett Hansen. I. Have Learned so much
Surging US virus cases raise fear that progress is slipping
"Let's talk about alarming surges in corona virus cases across the United States yeah you know the U. S. south and the west raising fears that the outbreak is spiraling out of control and that hard won progress against the disease is slipping away because of resistance among many Americans to wearing a mask in keeping their distance from others confirming predictions of the easing of state walk downs over the past month and a half would lead to a comeback of the virus cases surpassed no that was cut off when we click on that cases surpassed a hundred thousand in Florida hospitalizations are rising dramatically in Houston and Georgia and stuff startling one in five of those tested in Arizona where Donald Trump is going to have a political rally are that one in five are proving to be infected over the weekend the virus seem to be everywhere at once several campaign staff members who helped set up president trump's rally in Tulsa tested positive as did twenty three Clemson University football players in South Carolina at least thirty members of the Louisiana State University team were isolated after becoming infected meat packing plants were also hit without breaks gene and I were talking before the show about the the women's soccer team that was I think it's for Landau Orlando pride they've withdrawn from the challenge Cup that happening here here in Utah because of numerous because really I think three players and four or five staff members of that team a Texas is among the number of states including Arizona Alabama Florida South Carolina whose governors have resisted statewide match requirements Utah we could put in with that as well it's not going well my friends it's not going well at all here in Utah Angela Dunn has urged governor Herbert to return coronavirus restrictions to the orange level statewide if Utah does not get down to an average of two hundred new cases per day by July first during the past week the state has averaged more than twice that many about four hundred and seventy new daily cases we're quickly getting to the point where the only viable option to manage spread and death will be a complete shutdown warns a memo from a doctor Angela Dunn the state epidemiologist the Utah department of health document which Dunn said was presented the leaders of the state's coronavirus response states that contact tracing and testing will not be enough to curb the rapid spread of covert nineteen the surge began twelve days after Herbert loosened restrictions by moving nearly all of the state to yellow or low risk status the memo notes on Monday the state reported four hundred and forty four new cases the twenty sixth day with more than two hundred cases this might be our last chance for course correction the
A Pandemic Dahhhling, Do You Know What That Means?!
"Hello everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan and I'm James. His I told you had a bit of a surprise for you at the start. Those, Where we're watching the great, we've got one episode left and it's filled with Hazaras. That is the catchphrase. We are in the middle of pride month, and before we get into the show, a special shot and thanks to Tom Humber stone who has been or designer over the years for? Various artwork that you may see associated with the body serve, and he's given the body serve a pride makeover, so we've updated all of our various socials and websites, and you can have a look at what he did there. We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying

How disordered eating behaviors impact your health, digestion, and hormones with Victoria Myers
"We Toria thank you so much for coming on the podcast. I'm super proud to have you here. I'm really excited for the listeners. To hear someone who also takes this middle ground approach which is not allowed enough voice in the clinical nutrition slash disordered eating eating disorder recovery communities right. So I'd love to get started by talking about. How did you get here? Tell us about your personal health journey and the biggest influences on your relationship with food and your body growing up. Yeah well first of all Dana. Thank you so much for having me. I'm a really big fan of your work. Some honored to be on the PODCASTS. But for me I feel like my story starts way back in Childhood. Not obviously going to go into all the details stories of that vet. I just never had a normal relationship with my body and really ever with food and I remember. Really Young Age. I was kind of seeing foods as good as bad from a really young age and seeing my body as good and bad and all of those ways I think a lot of assist women were kind of affected by the culture in this society. As like what? We're supposed to look like right so as I get older. I that I wanNA be a Dietitian. And that was one of the best decisions I've ever made yet at the same time. It really was the catalyst for me starting to have really disordered behaviors around food because I felt like to be a dietician on you to look the part any to act the part so I would always say that like I had different forms of disordered eating. It never got quite to the spectrum of an active eating disorder but I did have restricted binge eating and I definitely had very disorder views towards foods I was always on diet of some sort and switching to a next month so a lot of chronic dieting and then I would say the thing that really stuck with me throughout the beginning just because again like becoming a Dietitian if doing needed to act and look the part was orthodoxy us. So that's the unhealthy obsession with eating healthy. I had that from the get go and then again. The dining kind of came and went throughout about ten years of my life. I went to school for you know nutrition and became a Dietitian. I moved to Florida after going to Clemson University where I did my schooling in my artie. Internship right outside of that area and when I moved to Florida I also continued those behaviors Especially as bright to be I remember being really restrictive with my eating habits but then binge eating afterwards because it's you know it's great that Pin Jhelum and I felt like again as a Dietitian. I just I always felt like I needed to be look apart always comes back to just not really filling enough as I was which is so interesting in the work that I do today because it's just changed so much so obviously as time has gone on I started to realize I had disorder behaviors. I realized this beautiful world of intuitive eating and how sad every side I worked on my relationship with Orthodoxy and really healing my disordered relationship with both food and my body just myself you know and for me a big part of that journey to with Arthur Rexona in this disorder relationship was I developed. Ib Ass and even had CBO for a period of time throughout my digestive issues. I also had a lot of hormonal imbalances when I got off a birth control after being on it for twelve years. I had a really hard time getting my period back so I'm so thankful for both the the journey ahead with my relationship with my body with food and also those digestion hormonal issues. I had because that's actually the exact that work that I do today. That's why I'm incredibly passionate about it because I find especially for people with the unhealthy obsession with eating healthy. What we're seeing right now with this health and wellness road is like this very dight. Centric approach to the Hillock. The healing modalities in the way that we need to heal. And we're being told you have to eat very specific and rigid ways to heal yourself right so I found while I was like China Hill. These things I am as I got even more or rex because I felt like it was the only way to heal and obviously went on. I realized exact opposite actually into eating was the best thing for me am I now can say like I rarely have digestive issues and I have a healthy monthly period and like all these beautiful things that came from healing my relationship with food and becoming an of eater and now at my virtual private practice. And that's the work the work that we do specialize in a clients who have orthodoxy. We do intuitive eating work. Digestive work in hormonal work as well so long story short. All those things together is the stuff that I'm so passionate about can't and it's so powerful to because I loved well loved and really identified with what you said before is like when you decided that you wanted to become a dietician. There's this kind of fear that you have to look and act the part and I feel like many people in the. Let's say the health and wellness and even sometimes the medical space as well. But mostly you see this with Dietitians nutritionists personal trainers health coaches everything like that. They're kind of is this conception that you have to look quote look the part right which like what does that mean when we start to examine that but you feel like you have to look a certain part or known will take you seriously. No one will believe you. No one will take your advice right. I mean there's that common like horrible truth like Oh well. No one wants to see a doctor who has cardiovascular disease like you would never go to a cardio surgeon who has heart attacks all the time right. So you wouldn't go to a Dietitian nutritionist. Who's in a larger body or has a higher BMI because there must be something wrong with them? Why would take their advice right? So there is this kind of fear as going into the dietetic practice or even with personal trainers or nutritionist. And stuff like that. Is I have to get there before. I can even be taken seriously and the interesting conundrum that I find with. This is many people go into the field of dietetic nutrition myself included because they are so obsessed with food and they want to make a larger part of their life so that they go into studying this and how to like you were saying we're in this era of like a diet centric approach to healing modalities and a lot of that is what you learn in nutrition school as well so it just kind of further impounds that belief and then you've got this okay. I need to look and act the As a Dietitian and I'm also already obsessed with food and it's basically just like a thunderstorm that can lead to Orthodox sick and disordered. Eating tendency is for a lot of practitioners as well yes. I couldn't agree more. I love that you use the word. Thunder storm is a great way to describe it. And it's so unfortunate to me because I feel like what we need to do now. Now that we've been part of the problem for so long which is why I really liked to show the messy parts of my life. Messy like the imperfect actions because we've created as a society that views perfection as the only way to obtain health that you have to eat this like very perfect way of eating and you have to exercise. Certain amount of times isn't it so unrealistic is so unattainable then makes people feel very all or nothing about their health and wellness behaviors. And then to. It's not what true health look cyclic. To health is not about session. It's about like your intentions in your mindset and just like living like living a good life like I don't want to ever promote the message anymore. Which once did I think we've all had our own evolution. Never went promote this idea of like you have to do exactly what I do to have this version of. Hell's I'm not interested in that anymore.
Joe Biden has 18-point lead in South Carolina, new poll shows
"But we begin at this hour for with your update from South Carolina now everyone including me sort of precipitously declare Joe Biden's campaign debt that's because he finished horribly and I will finish horribly in New Hampshire barely finish second in Nevada and so the the sort of going wisdom was that he was gonna collapse in South Carolina as well there's a new polling data out and it's showing that maybe his bat on that South Carolina firewall maybe he wasn't entirely wrong there two new polls out today one is from East Carolina University initialed by number eight thirty one percent to twenty three percent for Bernie Sanders and a second poll from Clemson University that shows a Biden up eighteen percent eighteen percent say blow out for a bite and that follows hot on the heels of a public policy poll that shows that that Biden is up fifteen percent which means that the new poll average in South Carolina she was a big spike for Biden it shows Biden is according to FiveThirtyEight shows Biden at thirty one percent in Sanders a twenty one percent if Biden would blow out Sanders in South Carolina in fact there's a new poll that shows the tenders actually running below times tire in South Carolina believe or not if Bernie were to finish third in South Carolina and buy more to clean up in South Carolina this radically region there's the race in a serious serious way why will suddenly it appears that Joe Biden is a living human being and that is a massive thing because then we move on to super Tuesday and once we get super Tuesday remember South Carolina has a lot of delegates I don't want it all gets once you get to super Tuesday if Biden is cleaning up in the southern states and Bernie is cleaning up in the northern states in say California you could very easily end up with an incredibly close race sirtuin allergies that are out about this today they're worth checking into because maybe this race isn't quite so over as we were expecting depending on what happens on to everything comes out of Saturday okay if Biden doesn't win in South Carolina the suckers over Sanders the nominee if Biden wins and very very close Sanders is still likely the nominee if Biden wins it just blows Sanders out of Sanders completely collapses in South Carolina if he gets going in South Carolina suddenly this looks like a race because you could end super Tuesday with a very close race in terms of delegate count and then it is a two man race Sanders and Biden down to the wire with presumably Bloomberg continuing to pour hundreds of millions of dollars into anti Sanders ads and all establishment money moving over by these bad really hasn't picked up a lot of money yet because frankly he's a corpse so five thirty eight has an analysis they're looking at super Tuesday so super Tuesday they're a bunch of states that our programs are California Texas North Carolina Virginia Massachusetts Minnesota Colorado Tennessee Alabama Oklahoma Arkansas Utah Maine Vermont and American Samoa those are the the states and territories that are open on super Tuesday but a late check out daily wire would have live coverage all evening long on super Tuesday Sanders is widely expected to do very well in California the polls are showing that right now in Texas Sanders and Biden running neck and neck but if Jenner is Barbara blowouts Anderson South Carolina that obviously changes things rather radically in North Carolina Sanders is running slightly ahead of iden but again if I does real well in South Carolina that may change radically in terms of North Carolina right now Sanders expected to do well in Virginia began that could change radically Massachusetts Sanders will win handily walking away Sanders is expected to compete pretty evenly with club which are in Minnesota is expected to win handily in Colorado in Tennessee Alabama Oklahoma you should expect a big bite and boost if in fact Sanders were to collapse in South Carolina the same is true of Arkansas probably true in Utah probably true in in major American Samoa but that's like four four votes in in terms of delegate count five thirty eight as it should be a good night for Sanders delegate wise just as it should be in terms of votes for forecasting and to take on five hundred eighty seven delegates but remember that's in the average model running some runs he gets more others fewer but by name Bloomberg are also forecasted to get three hundred and five and two hundred eleven delegates now this is something you noticed Bloomberg is dropping precipitously in state polls he is dropping precipitously in national polling so the flavor of the week is done those last two debates have not how Bloomberg he's looking credibly week warnings taken out Bloomberg basically which means maybe that those voters go back to Biden if Biden shows that he is not a dead human in South Carolina warrant bridging club which are far bar far behind judge not significant number of delegates only out of California club which are from Minnesota and warm from California Texas Massachusetts in the five thirty eight numbers but here is the key says Nate silver at FiveThirtyEight these numbers could and likely will change they're still just under a week before super Tuesday plenty of time for the race to shift as we had a debate on Tuesday night and South Carolina but Saturday even small fluctuations in vote share can greatly affect the number of delegates each of these candidates gets that's because in order to be eligible for any delegates from a state or district a candidate has to get at least fifteen percent of the vote there and many non Sanders candidates are hovering right around fifteen percent in many states California is a good example on average they say we're currently forecasting by twin fourteen percent seventeen percent of the vote there warns when fourteen bluebirds went thirteen judge when ten because California is what so many delegates who gets fifteen percent is super important if the numbers were right only Biden Sanders we get a share of California's a hundred and forty four statewide delegates but minor variation could really scramble the picture so it's a mess it's a mess again those polling numbers in South Carolina and it's not those late breaking pulling numbers out of South Carolina it looks actually quite strong for Joe Biden going into the election the last three pulls out of South Carolina how Biden up average double digits eighteen fifteen eight K. N. Biden's got some momentum in South Carolina James Clyburn this was a very influential congressman from South Carolina particularly with the black community in South Carolina he came out today give a big speech about Joe Biden why he's endorsing by his club endorsing Biden I am fearful for the future of this country favor for my daughter's in the future and the other children the children's future the countries of the flexion point it is time for us to to restore
"clemson university" Discussed on Silver & Black Pride
"Of coordinator and wide receivers coach at Clemson university. The two thousand sixteen in two thousand eighteen national champs coach, welcome to the podcast. Congratulations on another title. And you know, thanks for sharing your time with me. How are things going? Sure. Glad to be with you. Things are going. Well, we're just kinda the middle of our high school can't circuit right now and just getting ready for next season. They're good. Sounds great. Let's get right into it. I know you're busy guy. I'd like to hear before I get into the specifics on one year. Former players hunter Renfro, I do want to learn a little bit about you, in your, you know, your rise as a coach from, from your beginnings to, to where you are today with Clemson. Sure. Well, look a played Clemson was a walk on wide receiver and was here and finished here in two thousand three and went and became high school coach got a chance to be a head coach too early age twenty years old and scorching enough to win a state championship in our first year and ended up going to press Petitjean college to be the wide receivers coach in two thousand seven and then I came to Clemson in two thousand eight as a graduate assistant coach when he was the lodge receivers coach at the time in the middle of that season. Actually October thirteenth two thousand eight coupe Sweeney became the interim head coach move me to the receivers positions from being a graduate assistant in told me even though his chances of getting the full time head coaching job work right that if he did then he was gonna. To keep me on as the wide receivers coach fulltime, and we ended up winning four of our last six games, and he was named fulltime head coach and been here ever since so started out as the white out coach and recruiting coordinator in December of two thousand fourteen became co off its coordinator, along with running backs cokes. Tony Elliot and so been doing the offense for the last four years. I'd say that worked out pretty good for both UN Clemson that, that decision to keep Daboh and promote you the co offense coordinator. The next question, I have, you know, obviously, being a part of the, you know, offense coordinator and wide receivers coach. I know that you're, you're pretty Interco and the offense of game plans each week, but I also know that you are really involved in the recruiting. I believe you are you the recruiting coordinator as well. Are was here. Clemson for seven years before I took over the offensive coordinator role. It's okay, but I know that you are quite involved. Still in two thousand fifteen in two thousand eighteen you're named one of the top twenty five recruiters in the nation by rivals dot com and ACC recruiter of.
"clemson university" Discussed on Marty Smith's America The Podcast
"And then there's me and at the end of the tournament. Mike mcquaid, our balls who runs golf for ESPN and oversees all of our masters coverage one at each of us to take a different vantage point of what we saw in the tournament. What we saw from that moment. All of you, go write me, an essay and wrote him an Email and said, I'm going out to eighteen in my essay will be what that scene looks like and what I experience out there and the best way that I can describe it is like this. So as he was walking up eighteen the. Gene was unlike it was rockets in a way that Augusta National is not it is never raucous. They found a ban that they're proud. They were and tiger tiger at the top of their lungs. The no you don't. But when I knew it was real Mike was when I looked up on top of that scoreboard. I was standing behind the eighteenth. Green adjacent to the TV tower on the right right beside the tunnel of humanity through which the players walked to the scoring station. I was like three rows deep in a sea of humanity. I don't know the number, but it was thousands of people. I don't know if ten thousand is an overreach because there were people all the way down the eighteenth, fairway all the way down the first half way down the first fairway and into the ninth. All right, there were people everywhere is is close to that moment as they could get and to travis's point. They are chanting tiger tiger. I mean, it was unbelievable. And this is where I knew that. It was real different the scoreboard a. Cross the green from us the eighteenth scoreboard that both of you know, and all hardcore golf fans. No. So will the guys that were charged with placing those placards the guys who put those numbers in that scoreboard were standing and cheering too. And that told me so much. They don't do that. No. And they knew that they were seeing an historic moment. And this is where it was really driven home for me in the the true depth of the moment in the impact thereof. I was standing there tiger walked by me with Charlie heading towards the scoring stand and heading towards Trevor Immelman Zach Johnson and several former bubble Watson several former masters winners.

Anders Shafi all these guys are standing there grinning ear to ear because the guy they grew up idolizing who made them say I'm going to do this one the masters when it was not only improbable two years ago. It was impossible to years ago. The man could not stand up he could not lay in the grill on his floor and play Legos with Charlie because he was into much pain. He could not walk out in the backyard and kick a soccer ball with Sam because he was into much pain in these two men standing there. The eighteenth walked over to me, and they were Clemson university campus ministers and one of them said mardi we see ourselves in Tigers victory. And I found that to be a very interesting comment because I think in some small way all of all some thing of ourselves in that moment, and I said how and this man said to me. We are all capable of big mistakes. But we are also all afforded the opportunity at redemption. And while what a profound comment, right? And that if ever there were a comment that summed up the magnitude of that moment, the Reverend air the all struck tone. The the keen awareness of what we were witnessing that was the comment. I mean, that's one of those things to that you understand we are all flawed as human beings. Sure. And that's probably why we love a comeback story better than most than and that's why we gravitate so hard for people who have an opportunity at that redemption in in life on that level or someone for someone that was indomitable for what ten years or something onto?

"About how the Russians tried to impact the twenty sixteen presidential election learning more about how Moscow may have tried to move Bernie Sanders. Supporters into President Trump's column. Washington Post reporter, Michael Kranish spoke with komo's Bill O'neil, Michael how exactly did this work. Well, there is the Russian agency which people may have heard about in the indictment last year bought by Robert Mueller, the special counsel in that thirteen Russians and there's a line in there where he talks about how the agency was supposed to support Trump. And also Sanders said we support him them, both basically. So this was an effort not to elect senators president, but to get Santa supporters, not support Hillary Clinton in the general election, and instead to support either Trump sit out the election, but for some third party person could be done. To hurt Clinton and help Trump. Is there any sense of how successful this effort was I asked researchers at Clemson university that have specialized in looking at tweets, and they looked at many thousands of tweets that were said to come from Russian, then if I'd targeted Sanders supporters. So they told me for the story that they believed as documented in greater detail is previously been known that there was an effort by the Russians to target Santer supporters in a way that could have had an effect it impossible to say tweet ax. You know, move to voter why. But the overall massive what happened is part of the larger narrative of how Russia tried to influence. The election hasn't been any reaction to all of this other from the Trump administration or maybe from Sanders or the Clinton campaign. Well, the the Sanders campaign, basically says they didn't know anything about this during the campaign Sanders himself confused, the issue because he said later that people campaign didn't know it was Russians, but then he sort of backed away from that. And historic campaign manager told me that he had misstated that. So they said they didn't know at the time. This was happening. You know, it was known that Russians had hacked into the DNC and it hacked into the emails of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, but it was not known during the campaign, if they were influencing social media in the way that we now understand that they did that's political investigations reporter, Michael Kranish.

It's always a pleasure doing the show. Thank you listeners for joining me on a weekly basis. Well, what was the most amazing thing that happened this week wolf for those of us here in the Carolinas? It may well have been Clemson university's twenty nineteen national championship football team. Wow. What a moment that was Monday night to watch Clemson dominate Alabama. Now for those of you who don't know Dabo Swinney is a very very committed Christian. And my understanding is loose Sabin is a very committed Catholic. So you had two coaches whose faith was very meaningful for them squaring off in. In this Clemson, Alabama part for interesting football saga that continues. Even to this moment. And Clemson came out on top everybody right now is asking about Davos Winnie's leadership his coaching style. How his he able to get these kids to perform the way that they performed especially on Monday night, again dismantling an absolutely wonderful Alabama football team. And as we looked at debo Sweeney's record his success. And then his post game interview, many of us were deeply touched by what he had to say for not only is he a great coach and great leader. But he is a man of deep faith and his faith informs how he leads and coaches. So I thought it'd be interesting right now to hear some of his post-game comments after he won the national championship. Listen to this. What it takes it takes. It takes belief. You know, I think that we put limitations on our own self or how we think. Always believed that way. Why not? Is bigger than that stage out there? That's for sure. I know ten years ago, not many people probably saw this coming. We're here. And we did it. It's amazing. It's just it's a blessing. And as I said out there on the field. I said it two years ago, and I'll say it again. This is really not anything that I've done. It's not anything that that our players have done it. I mean, it's a Bank. God has worked through us. Only. God can do this. You a Hollywood movie Steven Spielberg or whoever wanted them producer people. Are they they couldn't write this script? You could. They couldn't write this script. It really could. And only God can do this. And I gave him all the gory because I know where my strength comes from at.

God his opened so many doors for me closed doors for people in my path is gifted me, and I'm just so thankful, and so, you know, as a young boy growing up in Alabama. I've lived so many of my dreams and I dreamed big. I mean, what else was I going to do. So anything that a moment like this because I know there's a single mom out there somewhere, probably try and figure out how she gonna make it. I know there's a kid probably like me, it's got some bad circumstances. And not sure what your future looks like if anything else that comes from this tonight. I hope it that somebody like that can can can have some encouragement as some hope that you know, what God's got a plan for me. Exactly. If that guy can go do it. Well, you know, what why can't I gotta be willing to work here. War. And then and then if Clemson can do it. Why can't we? I mean, there's no we're not supposed to be here.

You learn from coach Winnie that you think you can take into leadership for years to comedy said. Oh, that's easy. He coached the heart. I before he coached the performance think about that. He coached the heart. I before he coached the performance. So many of us who are leaders want our people to perform well, and we don't coach their hearts. We don't care about them as people, but our call is to be servant leaders to care for other people, and then they'll perform well, Trevor Lawrence the quarterback did any of you. Hear his statement after the victory. He said, my identity is not in football. My. Entity is in my relationship with Jesus Christ think about that his identity is not in what he does not in his performance in, but in his personal heart relationship with the Lord, I think, that's the reason debo Swinney is so successful.

Science-Based Tips for Better Meetings, Dinosaur Mythbusting
"Today. Learn twelve science-based tips for better meetings common dinosaur myths, you should stop believing. And what happened when a seventeen year old boy stayed awake for eleven days for science with satisfy some curiosity. Do you feel like meetings are almost always a complete waste of time? And they get in the way of you actually getting work done. Well, you're not alone. And you're kind of right. According to calculations by lucid meetings organizations spend between seventy and two hundred eighty three billion dollars a year on ineffective meetings. That's why I condemn have started actually studying meetings and the research has led to twelve science-based tips for a better meeting ready to work smarter. Not harder. I'm really glad that we're a small, but mighty company that doesn't have a lot of meetings. It's really great. Yeah. It's like whatever I have a meeting. I feel like I'm there for. Reason. And I just there for the amount of time that I need to get stuff done. And then I go back to work. Yeah. It's good. I have worked in giant companies with lots of regular meetings. And I may have to pass these tips along to some of my old co workers call and the last place where I worked isn't the only company having a lot of meetings. Do you know how many meetings happened in the US every day as many as fifty six million? The typical worker spends six hours a week in meetings. That's almost full workday and managers Evans, twenty three hours of meetings week that's more than half a week of work. Thankfully, a team of researchers from the university of Nebraska Omaha and Clemson university looked through two hundred studies of meanings to come up with some science-based tips for leading successful meetings. Let's start with the planning face before you even schedule the meeting set clear goals, make sure this actually needs to be a meeting in. It's not something that'll work just as well. In shared documents or Email chain in. Invite the key stakeholders, so you don't come up with a great idea in a meeting that gets shot down by manager Who Wasn't There, and right, and circulate and agenda. This is the number one thing I learned in college about running meetings and agenda will literally change your life or your meeting life. Anyway. Okay. So now come the tips for what to do during the meeting. I reiterate and stick to that agenda. Trust me, this will make everyone's life easier, especially yours keep the meeting short and sweet and steer the conversation from fatalistic comments like nothing can be done or this situation is hopeless and instead move towards productive questions. Like, how can we improve X given that why didn't work encourage participation from everyone? So you don't just get that random co worker who spends the whole meeting on his laptop. We have all been there and treat everyone's comments with respect. But also joke around in upbeats atmosphere actually more conducive to collaboration after the meeting send up meeting minutes promptly. And if you really. Want wanna crush your next meeting? Senate a quick survey asking for feedback on the meeting this concern, even the worst meetings into a learning opportunity. We haven't done any myth busting stories on a while. So today, we're going to tell you about some dinosaur misinformation. It's time to clear the air if Jurassic Park taught you everything, you know, about dinosaurs than you might want to brace yourself. Although that movie is still pretty great. It is so great. I had a friend wearing a Jurassic Park t shirt and some kid pointed and was like that's not Jurassic world. And we felt old what? Yeah. Well, I don't know if this first dinosaur myth will make you feel any better. But here it is Dennis ORs are not extinct, obviously, some of them are, but every living bird is actually a dinosaur mind blown here's another game changer. Dinosaurs were not necessarily cold blooded is a bit of a mystery exactly how they produced heat since there are a lot of different ways to be warm blooded. But we do know from microscope examinations of their petrified bones to metabolize names were simply too fast to have just relied on the sun for body heat. You might know about this next one, but not all dinosaurs. Or scaly, lots of dinosaurs, actually, had feathers, and what's more not all dinosaurs were green or Brown? Some probably were. But we actually do know that some dinosaurs were red black, white and other colors. In fact, they weren't even necessarily the same color all over we can even say with certainty that some dinosaurs had striped tales like a raccoon. Here's one more myth. You should stop believing. Dinosaurs were all around at the same time. I'm really sorry to burst your dinosaur fan fiction bubble but the renaissance Rex stegosaurus never had a death match with each other. Yeah. If the T Rex and built natural history, museums then they would have installed stegosaurus fossils as the main exhibit. Dinosaurs were around for a long time. In fact. Oh, yeah. Didn't we just mention they're still around today? Now that you know, the truth about dinosaurs. I just have one question for you. Ashley, what do you call a dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary? What the Sorus today's episode is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Everyone knows about the risks of driving drunk. You could get in the crash and people could get hurt or killed. But let's take a moment to look at some surprising statistics almost twenty nine people in the United States die every day in alcohol, impaired vehicle crashes. That's one person every fifty minutes even though drunk driving fatalities have fallen by third in the last three deck. Ends drunk. Driving crashes? Still clean more than ten thousand lives. Each year. Many people are unaware that driving while high can be just as dangerous in two thousand fifteen forty two percent of drivers killed in crashes. Tested, positive for drugs. Not so harmless after all is it and get this from two thousand seven to two thousand fifteen marijuana. Use among drivers killed in crashes. Doubled. The truth is driving while high is deadly. So stop kidding yourself. If you're impaired from alcohol or drugs, don't get behind the wheel. If you feel different you drive different drive high. Now, get a DUI drive sober or get pulled over. What's the longest you've ever gone without sleeping on purpose? Was it eleven days because that's the world record for the longest amount of time staying awake. It's held by Randy Gardner who is seventeen years old at the time and his story is pretty wild. I lasted about twenty four hours straight one time. And I decided that wasn't the life for me. Yes. Same. I think I've mentioned this on the podcast before actually. But like. The only all night I've ever done was in junior high which seems like that English teacher probably shouldn't have been assigning assignments that required seventh graders to do all nighters. But who might judge? I've definitely done it more recently than that. But I had just as good of a reason I had to play smash brother. Oh my gosh. You have a problem, Cody. No, No, I I don't. don't. Care about you. I don't go to meetings. So I don't have a problem. So this story started in late December nineteen sixty three. There's literally a song by the four seasons called December sixty three. Oh, I Don. I. Fifty. Branding Gardner had a theme song. Awesome. Randy Gardner wanting to beat the record for most days without sleep. So that he could get this win his local science fair seriously, and this experiment became something of a national sensation. In fact for a short time. It was the third most written about story in the American press after the assassination of president Kennedy and the Beatles historic trip to the states. That's why it's not too surprising that an actual sleep researcher named Dr William Dement heard about the experiment and came to keep an eye on. How things went in the end Gardner stayed awake for two hundred and sixty four point four hours, which is roughly eleven days in twenty five minutes, and that whole time Dement and a couple of gardeners, friends tracked exactly how his mind was doing with a series of cognitive and sensory tests after two days without sleeping. He started to have trouble repeating simple tongue. Twisters and he sucked being able to identify objects by touch his senses seemed to heighten and he became sensitive to strong smells by the fifth day. He was hallucinating and soon after that he started having. In trouble forming short term memories, he kept himself awake with the help of physical activities. And weirdly his basketball game actually improved over. The course of that sleepless week and a half a few things happen after the experiment was over. I the good news Gardner and the other boys won first place in that science fair. He had his achievement immortalized in the Guinness Book of world records. And of course, he finally got to get some Shaddai about fourteen hours of it. As a matter of fact, but they get us book of world records. No longer accepts entries for longest periods spent without sleeping because of well. The bad news in the late two thousands Gardner started to experience insomnia on a nightly basis. There's no way to say for sure, but he's convinced the reason was his teenage stunt he suffered from a recurring inability to sleep for several years until finally settling into a more reliable routine. But still he only enjoys about six hours of sleep per night. These days kids, don't try this at home.

Order really. To it's all about politics. Isn't it? Everything's all about politics. The guy is dead. Now. Just start, you know. And we have this thought from the upstate. I wonder if Jeb Bush's. And looks at his brother and his brother George and gets mad that he won't get this kind of Sindh off. I would hope that it is the furthest thought from his mind on this day. I mean, seriously again, you really think politics now, there's some people. Yes. It's all about the posturing and politics and trying to even profit from circumstances. Like this didn't we have one of those years ago? The Democrats their whole thing was a performance. That's not what I'm seeing today. And there's no evidence I've seen anything resembling this the past few days regarding George H W Bush also someone commenting. On the woman who defended herself and rightly says, pray for the woman who had defender home, we congratulate her she did the right thing that same person wants this horrible experience. What sane person wants this horrible experience in their memory? Are harasser not going to remove this burden from her. You're absolutely right. You can be you can be right justified in your actions, and yet have to live with this for the rest of your life. It's a horrible thought I've talked with someone who'd fended himself in a carjacking situation years ago for a news story talked to him sometime later still has nightmares about it. Doesn't go away. So you are absolutely right to pray for this woman. Now the person saying here Clinton's. What a surprise not really. They had forged quite a relationship. Over the years. So as I mentioned, we will continue to have coverage of what is taking place in the nation's capital as the nation says farewell to a former president, I told you it's another upstate story. We need to tell you about and this could affect all kinds of people because I'm sure some of you even here in the Charlotte area. May need to be concerned about this South Carolina's department of health and environmental control is warning students and visitors at both Clemson university and Tri county technical college about a confirmed case of the mumps connected to the university. Dee heck said they learned last week the confirmed case involving a student associated with both schools. Here's what you need to know. Anyone who resided in or visited Clemson university or Tri county between November twenty first and over number twenty nine may have been exposed to mumps. That's a pretty big deal. Said people have been vaccinated with Emaar measles. Mumps rubella vaccine have a lower risk of infection. That's a key word doesn't say that you are immune. It says you have a lower risk of infection. You should be aware the signs and symptoms because even fully vaccinated people can get the disease. Mumps is a contagious viral infection. That may result in a swelling in one or both. Salivary glands the cheek and jaw area blow the ear mumps spread through saliva or mucus from the mouth nose or throat most often by coughing sneezing talking or kissing. So again, if you happen to have been. At Clemson university or Tri county technical college between November twenty first and November twenty ninth. You may have been exposed to mumps. So that's very important information for you to have. We continue the broadcast talking about our economic situation. We'll get to the stock market and a bit because that is a subject for a lot of concern right now after a pretty extrordinary run. Now, there are signs for concern and questions about what's going on with our economy. By the way, the. Shot now has been widened at the National Cathedral and sitting next to Hillary Clinton is Jimmy Carter. Right behind him, former vice president Biden as well as the. The casket and procession makes its way to the National Cathedral. We'll have coverage of this coming up in just a few minutes. Unfortunately, some more bad news to report on the economic side. Arana, oh, this is a company that provides technical support for the US department of energy. They're laying off over one hundred workers across the Carolinas who provide engineering services for an ache in South Carolina nuclear fuel facility that shutting down. As part of the warn act.

She was very effective in communicating a very different American approach to foreign policy at San unorthodox one also one that was not an easy one to deliver. What she did it in a way that I think got her respect and was effective. Then you know, there's there's often it's often position that the president to take these stronger positions on foreign affairs must somehow be inherently disagreeable. And I think she showed that you can be respected and be very effective. Well, delivering messages that a lot of people don't wanna hear that was even operate led pe- the president's got an unorthodox style and people just can't handle it is sending just say. Well, it's so different the way he's approaching things. He just say it's so wrong ways approaching the just being open to its things do have to change. They just say, well, you know, he's wrong to be doing this. Because that's not the way it's usually done. She was a good iron. I think to the president because she would walk into journalists are to the UN building and stand in front of world. Leaders and she would continuously continue his message America first, and we're not going to stand for this. And we're not going to be bullied now. Think about this indian-american that's a positive, right? Number two. Dow husband's in the military that's positive number two female who has come out against who's strong on race in South Carolina.

She brings a lot to the table. Horizon may strong. It's just so bad that we agree on. This was so much better. When we disagree. Well, you know, she really I've always followed her career being from South Carolina.

"Shawn Watson quarterback of the Houston. Texans. Of course was a two time Heisman finalists that Clemson university. When he was a player there, and I got to know, Sean, very well while he was at Clemson because I covered the Tigers so often because they're really good led by him during his time there and my first week of the college football season was a little bit nutty started at Notre Dame Michigan in south bend. I was there for several days. And then I got on an airplane from south bend on Sunday morning September second flew through Dallas to Tallahassee Florida to cover. Virginia Tech Florida state on Monday night, September the third hand while I was in south bend right before? I left ahead to Tallahassee. I got notice from ESPN that they wanted me to do an interview with the Sean before week one for NFL countdown and. Of course, I'm going to say yes to that. I was thrilled honored humbled. So after Florida state Virginia Tech, I got up at four thirty in the morning, flew from Tallahassee to Charlotte to Houston and hung out with the Sean for a while. And you know, he's coming back from this season ending knee injury before which he was putting together a season of historic proportions. He threw nineteen touchdowns through seven games. Nobody ever done that before. And then of course, he suffers the knee injury in practice. Richard Sherman lauded DeShaun just lauded him said we've played everybody. We have played every single great quarterback in. This guy is the truth. As many of you guys know Jalen Ramsey the all world defensive back for the Jacksonville Jaguars in G Q article before the season just roasted the whole damn league. I mean, he lit up everybody. And in that same article about the Shawn Watson, he said a future MVP of the league. He's the man, and I wondered what that meant to shown in a time when there's a whole lot of chatter, and nobody really has a whole lot of complimentary things to say about one another these two guys who are so outspoken in so vocal about the competition were so complimentary and it was a fascinating conversation. What's it like to come back from a knee injury? Again. It's not as first time. He suffered a knee injury while he was at Clemson as well. And I just I appreciate him so much as a human being. I've told him this. I've told anyone who will listen this met Bill O'Brien the head coach for the Houston Texans for the first time while I was down there. And I told him this does Shawn Watson is a light in the world. He has a spirit and a grace and composure that you just don't see very often. And I've been fortunate to be around him a lot, and I have seen it not just the way that he treats me personally. But also the way I see him treat everyone. Most of you know, the story about him giving his first game check ever he split it into thirds and gave it to some employees of the Texans that needed it after hurricane Harvey about one year ago. So we get into all of those things during this conversation. I can't wait for you guys to hear it. It's one of the pleasures of my life to have gotten to do it. And it's it's just great. I think you guys will learn a lot about.
