"Teeth by all the media. Exposed so Tucker Carlson last night had a funny feature, and we had to play for you at some point sooner rather than later about how often Joe Biden's claimed to have been arrested, and he's never been arrested, or at least not since he was a kid. Andi, just that's his go to to make a story a little better. He's got Brian Williams syndrome. I like. Just tell a story has to enhance it. But I liked Molly Ah, Molly Hemingway's argument there that he's just one of those people that you think I have. That might not be true are heard. That's not true. But you tell a good story and You know, he's got that vibe. I've known people like that You don't store. He don't really enjoyed it against him because he knows, you know that. It's not really the thing, but it's kind of a good story Yarn. That was a bad dude. Sure, corn, but I wonder what actually have. Where's corn Pop? He died recently. Didn't really wasn't that Ah story when he passed? Home actual corn pop. I wish we could heard his side of the story. Look, I'm just at the pool. I'm I'm going to dive off the board. All of a sudden, the guys mocking me and for all my friends, I said, Look, you want to step outside, and he called me Esther Williams, which you're going to have to Google. Ifyou're understand, they asked, and I thought, well, that's really offensive. I said we should step outside and talk about this. He shows up. He's gonna chain in his hand. I'm thinking Who is this is what I'm gonna wrap this chain around your head, right? That's Ah Ah, good lesson for anybody who speaks in public and do not make a reference that anybody under 70 would have to Google. I apologize for that, Master. How can you not understand You're speaking in front of a bunch of 20 something parents and tiny Children? How could you not get that? You need to explain that reference. I apologize for that. Alright, there's alright. Honorably done, sir to questions. If you are running his campaign, would you make him debate? No, I wouldn't either. I would just not do it. I think the price you pay will be tiny, if anything at all full on cowardice. That is our strategy. And because the because the media's made such a Ah I tried to convince people so hard that Trump is such an outlier when it comes to tell him the truth. When lots of politicians, you know, say things that aren't true every single day, I know including on the Basij, but anyway, the media's I think he's got cover from anybody that would be worried about it. I just think he's got no price to pay for not debating. Do you think he will debate Mmm. Yes. I'm 53% certain got Ding. Will that be an epic event? If he does, Yeah, I have no confidence that I'm right. But it's such it would be so odd. Such an outlier have no presidential debates. I've got to believe he'll do it, but I could absolutely be wrong. Part of the point that they make in the article is were electing the oldest person president by far will be the oldest president ever on day one, right? Buy four and then to not for the media to not be pressuring That person still really demonstrate that they're mentally sharp with either press conferences of her debates. We'll just shows you where we are politically. Absolutely. They're part of the resistance. The media. Don't care about that old fashioned traditional values, Boomer. Plays and when you're out of defeating Trump, and when you're on the decline from what I understand what I what I've noticed in my life. Six months is a long time. When you're starting to decline your own people that change in Teo different people capability wise in six months when they're getting older difference, and we might go six months without really hearing from Biden between the last debate in Election Day, Yes, it's entirely possible. That's why Hey, a quick word from our friends at simply safe the best home security system. You can buy the best, Okay, understand that if it cost Mohr than the traditional systems if it had a long contract if it had a messy install, it would still be worth getting because it's better, but it has none of the bad stuff. Yeah, And it's the actual best overall home security of 2020. Not pretty good. Not good enough, but the best he set it up yourself in under an hour. It's about $15 a.

"Lumpy dirty potato spread slowly through Europe being brought back from South America to Spain in fifteen seventy. The Swiss believed that potato consumption would lead to infection of the lymph nodes. The Burgundy. Region of France outlawed their cultivation altogether. Some thought that spuds would cause sterility while others thought that they caused rampant sexuality. We Have Antoine Augustin Parmentier to thank for our fries, Mash and hashbrowns. Forced to subsist on potatoes on exclusively as a prisoner of the PRUSSIANS during the seven years' war poverty are not only survived, but found that he thrived. Changing public opinion was an uphill battle, however, even serving potatoes to the KINK who suffered no ill effects wasn't enough. Permit years genius stroke was to make. People think they weren't allowed to have potatoes. He had his land filled with potato plots and hired guards to protect it. Guards who were instructed to turn a blind eye to all theft and accept any and all bribes so that the public would steal the potatoes and grow them on their own land. After a time Parmentier dismissed the. And as he expected, the locals raided the land and stole almost every potato plant growing there. By the following year, nearly every farmer in the region was growing their own potatoes. The potatoes, geographical and botanical cousin. The tomato fared better initially. Spain Portugal and Italy welcomed it with open mouths, the rest of Europe not as much. Tomatoes were blamed for health problems in in the upper-class people who were willing to eat them. The wealthy eight from pewter plates, a metal, high and let. The acid from the tomatoes would lead the lead from the plates, resulting in sometimes fatal lead poisoning. Even the American colonies of the seventeen hundreds view tomatoes as a curious ornamental plant. Making matters worse the Tomato Horn.

It reality. You've probably seen them in your own garden. You can just pick them off by hand to dispatch them in whatever manner see fit. Lee Apocryphal champion of the Wolf Peach as tomatoes were sometimes known was New Jersey Gentleman farmer. Robert Gibbon Johnson. According to the Salem. Society in eighteen twenty around two thousand people. We're jammed into the town square. Johnson emerged from his mansion and headed up market street toward the courthouse, dressed in his usual black suit with white ruffles, black shoes and gloves try corn, hat and cane. At the courthouse steps, he spoke to the crowd. To help dispel the toll tales and fantastic fables that you've been hearing and to prove to you that it is not poisonous I am going to eat one right now. There was not a sound as he dramatically brought the tomato to his lips and took a bite. A woman in the crowd screamed and fainted, but no one paid her any attention. They were all watching Johnson as he took one bite. After another, he raised both arms. The crowd cheered, and the firemen's band blared song. He's done it. They shouted. He's alive. We, know the tomatoes and potatoes come from central and South America but lots of foods don't come from where we've been led to believe. Let's go to a lightning round real quick.

"I'm pretty confident. That will see it early twenty, twenty. One I don't think we're going to see anything arriving this year with victories. Again. I'm really anxious. QUALCOMM component pricing is going to be higher corning. I believe the you know they. They have an entirely new brand name for this glass. They're so confident in. It's improved performance. That has to come with a couple more dollars. And in two spirits, Samsung note ten profitable with victis, transparent aluminum. Signed me up again. If you have transparent folding aluminum on galaxy fold, I'll finally be way more excited about folding phones. Being a bit more durable than they currently are. Which again I? Don't do anything for me right now. Let's wrap this up folks. Thanks so much for joining me on this crazy scattered podcasts. Morning is always some really interesting new stories that we got to keep our eyes on I'm thinking. I'm GonNa, try and do a Wednesday stream, either here on, twitch or on Youtube. GotTa talk about. What's going on with any trust? When the top major tech companies are getting called before Elected officials to to start answering some questions on this stuff like we gotta keep our eye on where those conversations go. Along the way I'm also going to be having some more videos coming out. I've got a teaser. Oh, do I still have my Patriot on up? It's already live on. The Patriot has a preview video, but I had a fun little showdown between. In a gamble, just talking about stabilization for video, and I was very surprised by the results, so I'm hoping that folks will be commenting on and voting on on what's coming down the pipe. There I've got audio kit I got a little cute, a home phone setup for Republic Wireless. Ear Buds ear buds in ear buds and a portable monitor I. Don't know if I'm GONNA. Get to all of it this week, but there's going to be a lot, so it's going to be a fun ride, and this is kind of going hand in hand with. A again I I. Get Cranky when I just spent too much time focused on phone after phone after after phone, so it's time to kind of spread back out again. More accessories feature videos. I want to do more tips and tricks stuff, and that's what I think. We're going to be kind of looking at as we get into the second half of the year. After some of these other major phone launches out so? You can catch all of the information from this week's podcast. Some Gadget Guy, dot com show notes and links to all of the articles that we discussed and then also just a huge. Thank you to those of you out there sharing and supporting not only content creators, but also some of my initiatives like glowing rectangles. The sub read it read dot com slash slash glowing rectangles. It's been a really great week for spreading the word on content that deserves more attention. From Friends of mine doing their own streams, tk had an awesome stream. This week. To, also expanding on new shows like Salmon, Matt, who came straight out of this community, just became buddies and started doing their own commentary I this is, this is what we should be living for is finding new cool stuff to get excited about into share and talk about so I wanNA. Thank you all for being along on this ride and for being good tech neighbors in your own circles of family and friends. You know where you can catch me. The whole rest of the Internet on the twitter's here on the twitch and I'm never on facebook. You send me a comment on facebook I'm never going to see. FACEBOOK is ninety nine point nine percent autopilot at this point, so you can send me something, and you can watch me there, but I'm probably not gonNA notice and Youtube, and all those other places, so I look forward to our continuing conversations over this next week, and the months and years to follow..

"And so when you see like, where is he trying to push? This is not scientific. You, you end up with. Do I feel flex over here to fill flex over here? Where where is it starting to fail? And then I can shift to apply force because human hands are not machines and life is messier dirtier so i. appreciate the sentiment or the idea that like well I mean. Yeah, your pocket, maybe be shaped. You can't account for all pockets, but the style of flex damage happened from cloth. Is Very different than what our hands are going to accomplish with very small points of pressure, applying that force in specific places to a phone frame, and then after you, you flex to one side, you might have already compromised some of the structural integrity of that gadget, so you know like all why flex this way with the screen and then flex this way with the back of the phone you know. I'm I'm not saying it's impossible and I'm not saying that this is A. This can't be educational in some type of gadget. Review sentiment, but. In what context are you damaging the phone through flex? A force in one direction, and then com further compromising the phone with the same style, fine point application of force in the opposite direction. And so to me it's. It's not. As instructive as it is entertaining. But that's why I like I fix it. Show me and I fix it. Tear down, and you can get a really good sense of of. That's going to be a trouble point. That's GONNA be a problem for the battery. That's going to be the screen assembly. The frame of that phone looks like it could be compromised here here and I feel better prepared to talk. Talk about ways that you can protect that gadget, maybe you. Maybe you don't need much. Maybe you just need some sort of like aesthetic. Snap on case. Maybe you really should be considering a bumper. This is a phone where I don't think you should leave the house without an armor, case glass screen protector. That's really the conversation we're trying to have I. don't believe. I bent phone phone broke. Don't by phone. Is the right conversation I think? I looked at the structural integrity of the Skagit it failed under these situations. These are the cases that could that could fix. Those problems is a better or I think A. A more journalistic. Attempt at having that conversation. Five, I! Don't like calling a four hundred dollar phone dirt cheap honestly. No I feel you there again. I mean like I. Just did all of this demo on my Stilo six, which cost me one hundred and fifty six dollars with tax and shipping on Booze Mobile, and for one hundred and fifty six dollars I feel like that's the new threshold for for phones you like. Don't buy that phone anywhere near full. Shopping on sale, and that is a stonking amount of phone for one hundred and fifty bucks. Gorn Petrovak again is a totally fair assessment. Gordon says I. Don't like it, but put velvet to Nord. Totally justifiable price increases to a for levels above for LG. Again. There's a lot that we can criticize about velvet. There's a lot that we can criticize about, nor these price tiers matter for what it is that you get you can. You can say chipset two chipset by your ignoring and entire feature set build quality Accessories availability for once like I'm more excited about the accessories that are compatible with LG on the velvet than I am a one, plus where normally one plus like blows me away cases an ear, buds and fast chargers all this cool stuff, and then you're like. Yeah, but my belt has stylus support. That's kind of a big deal. L. One rigs everything well. Don't say it like that, because then it sounds like I'm I'm disreputable. incented online online I mean again I'll always bring up a comment that references the V ten, but they lgbt ten had those stainless steel rails, and I put my ten through so much abuse. It's on its third screen protector, and that screen protector is cracked to and it still I it still coming back for more that V ten was such a tank I. really wish we still made phones like that. Simon says I don't know. Jerry Riggs. Everything is very relevant to anyone employed as a phone bend, irk. My wife just started. We started binging Futurama again so I now there's a bender Rodriguez that does nothing but the structural integrity of phones, and on that note this podcast is already gone way longer than I intended it to. I am feeling. We'll probably see corning invictus come in early next year on galaxies, but I'm hoping we can get just a little bit more of a follow up and I might reach out to the corning PR team to just to see like you know we'll be able to get kind of a list of early launched vices. I'm very curious. Very curious when it comes to material, science and And how we improve gadget her ability, if some of these claims that we can kind of keep an eye out because anything that makes our devices better longer term investments is going to be appreciated. You know a phone that doesn't get smashed or cracked is easily under general lifestyle. Abuse helps prevent some ways to help us. Manage a phone purchase a little bit longer and we get a little bit more life out of it, you know we have other problems that we need to keep up with software, support and updates and security, and all these things. It'd be nice if the actual housing for those software components. Didn't instantly fail if you looked at cross eyed on a sunny day. So O. J. Note Twenty victims. I don't think so. The way the corning put this out..

"Then you hear what crack and then you cut back like a guy's camera cut away from the slapper. So you might want to run that demo again because I didn't see anything, and so he just do it again. The guy running the demo like just looked so over it, but it was hilarious. Okay cool! What crack. At this piece of glass like four times because the presenter would keep walking away from the camera and they didn't have the time to swap out samples to you know. Pull like a bait and switch. And it survived like every single time and they demo. What the pucks look like for some of this material testing and I don't know I've got some press photos here. You've probably seen a lot of these, but you know. This is a weighted cell phone shaped puck. And they have one where the glasses just sort of a couple micron above, but it's a flat front. Nassau have somewhere. It's curved glass to also look at the material science of glass that warps on the sides, but it's. It's always. Scary stuff and yet we might be on the cusp of. Nice, durability improvements. We'll have to see I I I. Don't know that we're GONNA SEE I don't know that we're GONNA see a ton of manufacturers jumping on board. Early next year. I'll be very surprised if whatever follows for the galaxy s like a Galaxy S.. If that's what we get next, I'll be very surprised if they don't use victis but a number of other manufacturers have been out there, making other chemically treated and more durable glass products. What, corning is showing off your? Is Very bold. The claims here are very significant, but the practical demos that they showed off I couldn't point to anything where. Okay well, that's a claim, but it lacks this contact store. You're kind of playing fast and loose with some of your product Demo or Oh, you know what I can see what you're doing there, but in a real world condition this would this would really be a bigger concern than than the type of testing trying to accomplish. It. It, seemed pretty legit. Even for my if detector. Whether or not? Whether or not something like this might make a bigger. Mu- whether it's something like this might make a bigger impact on on smartphone. Dir, ability. This video is not playing. Come on video, but these are the different slappers that they use to do that swing. And just like you know, we start talking about the actual force that they hit this glass with so my One of my concerns might be that this glass is. Is So. Rich. In in a so. One of the things and again, I'm not as qualified to talk about this as as I probably should be on, but from reading up on other kinds of chemically treated glass. Remember how we saw galaxy s twenties. The camera modules would look like they kind of exploded. They look like they kind of got. It wasn't just like the camera module would crack. It looked like a part of just blew up and there was like a hole in that glass covering the camera module. When we start messing with glass to improve that kind of durability, it gets more scratch resistant. It gets more drop resistant, but when it fails, it bursts. It's not just like you know one hairline crack. It's like it almost looks kind of an explosion pressure has has a has popped off now. What corning showing off is? An Order of magnitude more durable than we've currently been using on phones and it's going to be up to manufacturers. To also apply the density. Or the thickness of this glass, and not just kind of play fast and loose with marketing. Oh, we're using victis and you're like you're using such a thin plane. Victims at it's M- it's probably not going to be a consumer benefit. Or, like maybe get victis screen protector that'll that'll totally do it but but their claims are not dependent on frame or on other manufacturing attributes, so it's not that this glass has to be under a certain pressure on a certain kind of frame, and that's what keeps it intact. It's not there's a special coating that makes it more scratch resistant. That will eventually wear off. I mean. There's still will be like a nano coating, but that's really more for cleanliness than anything else like the actual properties of this glass seemed to demonstrate both scratch, scratch resistance and crack crack. Resistance Crack Durability. But I would I would just be afraid if you push one of these various glass devices to its limit, and it finally does fail because you can. If you try to break a phone, you eventually will succeed breaking that phone. What will this just crack or will it be like that Samsung issue where like? It ripples like the the the crack explodes over the front face of your phone, and that's the only concern. I have and its way out there because you know, these phones don't exist yet, but it was a really cool like I got to sit down with one of the corning engineers. Will Not sit down and we were on a Webex conference, but. I'm kind of making some lame jokes about star Trek War and you're like Oh. If you guys are ever going to come up with a transparent aluminum her. But just talking to them. It's it also kind of helped reinforce. I absolutely hate gadget destruction porn videos. We've got an IPHONE and a Samsung and we're just GONNA. Keep dropping them over and over and over again. You're not proving any durability. So when when we see that a corning. Is Making these pucks. This is an example of the corning puck. It's weighted imbalanced like a phone weighs about as much as a phone, their stuff inside it to kind of simulate having a battery in a circuit board, and then there's a general frame around the outside of it. We're talking. Thousands of those pucks get. Dropped and scratched and poked and prodded, because if you have one drop, you might have micro fractures in there that you can't see, but that affect the durability of subsequent damage and abuse, and that was one of the more interesting parts of that product demo. Where they would go through when they would purposely scratch into different types of glass, and this new victis, and then apply pressure, and you could see how much more readily all of these solutions would fail, but that victims even still was better than the competition for that kind of stuff I'm starting to sound like according advertisement. But again we don't know. I personally don't always get that kind of access to pepper questions so like when I say Hey, what? What is this testing protocol? Look like and he's like Oh. Yeah, so we'll take dozens of these things. We'll just do this. One type of drop test like Oh. Yeah that makes a lot more sense. Never forget touring. An Oboe, manufacturing facility, and they're assembling thousands of phones in this campus. And they're just taking samples, but dozens of phones every day. Just get destroyed. because. They need to make sure that they're that. They're breaking with intolerance, not just like. Oh, well, we know if we drop them a whole bunch break. It's like well. What if someone has his phone in a back pocket and their genes flex this phone what we've got to destroy it doesn't phones today just testing that and that's the reality of like. What goes into this type of manufacturing at that scale. The the insane number of sacrificed devices in samples it's. It's shocking. It's a really heady concept to wrap your brain around. For Matt Tyler, let's hope qualcomm in corning charged stupid for next year stuff because we will see fifteen hundred and seventeen hundred dollar phones. Dave Burns. How much will this increase the price of our smartphones? That's one thing I couldn't get a good handle on. I am expecting that. Phones with victis are GonNa. Come with higher price tags. I have to believe that corning's next generation manufacturing. Will have an impact at will have an effect on component prices. I don't know what to what degree. And again I like. For how corning partners with other companies I have to believe that the way they negotiate and work out the deals. It's got to be highly secretive and totally proprietary. But. I'm hoping that it's rolled into the price of gadget in a way where? The victims brand is in. Immediate Twenty dollar price increase all on its own I. Don't believe that's GonNa. Be The situation. From Ski Three Becker. Will it blend I'm pretty confident to will, but you're going to have to have some torque on that blender. Because I, no, but how will the victims glass feel in the hand?.

"And people talking about know Nintendo and switches switches are stupid profitable, of course, of course you know again. nintendo's business model is wholly unique to Nintendo, but that's also why this fight between PC gaming, xbox and playstation is GonNa be so critical. The entire future of art like infrastructure in our Entertainment. It's it's Internet based. If this global. Social distancing experiment shown US anything. It's that. We all need to be fighting for better connectivity and better services and better, software and streaming. And unfortunately we'll have to take a few early hits for those of us who enjoy playing with ex cloud in with stadia We're GONNA have to get our hearts broken, but if we don't actually show up to use these services and then comment on how to improve the services, then we get nothing we. We get no progress. So. Moving, right along I, want to wrap this up, our podcast is going to go long, but I just had to We we have to talk about a really exciting development in material science. Which I'M! Let's get this out of the way right now. I am not qualified to talk about materials sciences. But I I took. The news broke. Sorry, burying the lead corning. They make gorilla glass. We seen these iterations of gorilla glass. Gorilla glass, one in two and three, and each of them bring. Somewhat unique properties to the mix, but glasses, glass and glass can break and glass can scratch glass, crack and I still feel like out of all the materials that we've migrated to to make. To make our phones. I'm sorry, the biggest fan of using glass as the rear casing material is I I need to preface this where I'm about to nerd hard on what corning had to show off, but at the same time I would be very happy to be using vegan leather would. I don't know that you could really use carbon fiber, but maybe Kevlar high-quality a thicker polycarbonate, not just plastic, but that really nice nice feeling thick plastic. You could saw me thousand dollar phone with some alternative material. It would not need to be glass and I would be very happy. But. This is a turning point as corning is now. They've moved to a glass. Called victis! which means life actually going share their one of their promo videos here while we talk about this stuff The press releases went out. And We saw some some really a bold claims. Glass that? Not is is not only. More scratch resistant, but is also more. Crack and dropped resistant. It's always funny when you talk to PR PR people. well, we listen to our consumers, and they said they wanted a glass that is harder to scratch and glass. That's harder to break. You're like well. Yeah, but in material science. This has always been sort of the the Magic Unicorn. Statement Right. And so. Again we're we're. We're talking about very specific testing protocols for for how this glasses is produced and how they? Verify their claims. I'm right now. We're looking at a slapper. which sort of swings the phone in Arkansas smashes it against concrete They did these drop tests were they took something that waits similar to a phone and they drop it from two meters from over six feet. So if you're over six feet tall, and you're, you're talking on your phone and a full front face drop on a on a sand paper covered steel surface. And we're seeing much more durable. Results, even down into some of these situations. Where once you already have a scratch on your screen, your phone is significantly more compromised, and so victims is also supposed to address that. Say you get a scratch on your screen, and then pressure is applied Your your phone should survive better, too. So this makes for like really fun. Just sort of a gadget destruction porn. You know, we're. We're looking at Some of the marketing claims and and I I have a healthy skepticism. Right. You, if you make something more scratch resistant in the past that means that material has been more brittle, so it actually can kind of crack easier, and we so ran into some of those issues with exotic materials like Sapphire displays I. I still have A. A. Kyocera Brigadier with the Sapphire screen where I've got video and I'm raking concrete over that screen, and it comes out pristine as. Concrete is crumbling over that device. But the flip side is if you make something more, drop or shock resistant. It's usually a softer material. So this is actually kind of a big deal in glass in material, science that for this aloom, a lummus, a luminous I can't say that a luma silicate. That's about as close as I can get I. Don't think that's actually how you pronounce that word, but this this chemically treated ion ion dense glass. is at corning's is claiming they've managed to do both. So I took a conference call. They did a whole PR tour, and they even called me up of all. People so I took a conference call, and they did some of those tests like the slapper tasks that I just showed it's it's pretty remarkable. Seeing something like this Demo D- in real time where you know this is I forget exactly how tall this arm is, but but it basically simulates a direct forceful impact from something that would have been like a six foot drop. And there's a little plate. Of sandpaper covered steel that the glass just slams immediately into, and it was actually kind of cute, too. Because the person who was doing the presentation, they had one of those like auto blogging cameras that would follow him, and so he would walk away from the slapper, because it was really loud, and then the camera would follow him, and.

She's not yet five, but it. You know disassembling and cleaning up. A bicycle is one of my favorite all-time sort of mechanical puzzles. Some really looking forward to that this afternoon. And then on top of that, we just have a ton of tech commentary hitting hitting the Web's Today. This is going to be slightly news heavier show, but then we also got word from corning. I I am not super expert at material. Science I'm an audio guy. Like sound reinforcement and the physics of sound. I took a conference call with the folks according to talk about victis and. What it might mean for next year's smartphones and gadgets and stuff. Dave Burns one in the art of bicycle maintenance I should I should write a book. I'm not that good I'm not the guy. But I used to field strip mountain bikes, so I at least know a little what I'm doing with the you know sort of some tools in my hand, some some lovers and some police and you know bicycle chain degreaser good times. But we we've got. We can save that for future video or podcast I'm sure. Oh. Matt Tyler of the color of the bike parts was heavily discussed. It was it was you know my daughter is is in action princess? She loves pink and sparkles and stuff like that, but she's also super into characters that do things like. She really loves action adventures. As much as she enjoys a tea party from time to time, but it was really a challenge. It's this cute, little white bike frame with a white wicker basket on the front and I was I was trying to shop around and get whitewall tires I wanted to get some some like pink or lavender petals, and you're like it is so hard finding, not only kids stuff, but kids stuff in fun colors for bicycles right now where it's not total garbage. like I was I was picking up some pedals and going these. Snap off these crap. Anyway, I digress. Let, let's let's knock out some some housekeeping real quick I'm going to try and fly through housekeeping these. I'm really trying not to make this podcast three hours long, and we do have some topics that I want to spend a little time. Digging into and I had a lot of stuff. Go out last week. Just like we've been cranking some of the work. recently three legged couch. That is a very kind and generous estimate housekeeping saying four minutes. it's nine zero six in the am so let's let's fly through kicking over to screen share. Airdrop for android nearby share tutorial android users finally have a wireless file sharing protocol similar to airdrop. It should be backwards. Compatible I think all the way to android seven, but if you just want a quick and dirty tutorial on how to set it up and use it for the very first time I have a one minute long video that should show you some. Some good step-by-step ups then I also. This was a fun review to put together. This is the zero lemon ninety four charger, and when zero lemon reached out, I know zero lemon is being a battery company like in the article. I even show this picture of zero lemon battery that I now have in my galaxy. Note four, so they sent over this charger. Battery, so I was a little embarrassed, getting already to review that and. I agreed to review something that I did not know what it actually was. But that's a written article on some Gadget Guy Dot Com. Then the Biggie of last week was I felt more confident calling a video a review for the LG Velvet, now that we know how much it's GonNa cost in North America, we finally got at and T. pricing at five ninety nine, and so I put this video together just talking about. Velvet my experiences using velvet, and what this price to performance ratio means now is there is a lot of concern over velvet at the South Korean pricing. Because the exchange rate would have meant that. Oh, this is going to be like a seven hundred and fifty dollar phone, five, ninety, nine, five, ninety nine, and now we've got a phone that competes really well against a galaxy seventy one and can be things so there's a lot of cranky so boxing in my reviews. As, per usual. But you can catch the I mean it's mostly talking about the phone but I did have to kind of respond to some of those LG dog whistles like Oh softwares terrible and you're like. No, it's L. G. Software. There's still room for improvement, but it's never been better in updates. Great Art so thick compared to what so there's there's a lot of that kind. Kind of back and forth crankiness, looking at one of my views, and then over the weekend. I mean anytime I get the opportunity to play with some interesting audio gear, and I really need to preface this like I I? Find it troubling. I was just in a conversation on the some gadget guy. Discord a lot of my reviews. Lean positive. But really what's critical is how broad is the demographic? So this might be the exact right fit gadget for like five people, but as long as we're being honest about I feel those. People who are going to absolutely love.
Here's Why Victoria's Spike Isn't Going Down Just Yet
"We like to answer people's questions every day here on Karenna. 'cause I thought we could start today with Leslie. She's asking about what everyone is wondering about Victoria. So Leslie says the numbers of new cases each retort don't seem to be coming down, but they're not doubling every few days, either can you please explain why this is different to the first time around? Are we at an R. VALUE OF ONE? That's the effective reproduction number. Do we need to get it significantly under one for the numbers to actually start going down and. And Teagan, you have been investigating I mean getting part of this question, so in terms of the the doubling right, and all that sort of thing, but I've been talking to some epidemiologists about why we don't seem to be saying a decrease in the style number. In fact yesterday we had a record number of new cases. Unsurprisingly, it's a complicated situation in Victoria and the answer is not straightforward, so one of the guys I spoke to said that the numbers might look bad, but they would have been many many times worse without intervention, so we shouldn't see this as a failure, so here's the bad news. Here's the worse news. Okay, that's right. That's right, so it's not a failure it means. Means that we've still got maybe a bit longer to guy, but definitely the actions that people have been taking the sacrifices that people have been making worthwhile so just before you go on, so the implication is the curve is bending. Yeah, exactly so it would've been that exponential curve that sort of almost straight up with curve without the intervention, and what we're seeing is a more gradual increase, even though it seems like big numbers daily compared to what we've seen in other cities around the world where there have been outbreaks taking off the Melbourne outbreak has been a fairly steady pace in comparison. So, what did the other epidemiologists say so? He said that there's a lot of factors at play. Play as I said before, but one of the things that he pointed out was that mosque wearing that universal mosque wearing are in the came into effect a few days ago, so we're not seeing the resulting drop in numbers from mosques yet and his prediction is that by the end of the week we'll start to see some of those changes filtering through as well as to whether that will be enough to get them out of the woods by the end of the six-week lockdown. Period is way too far into the future for him to guess, but definitely he's prediction. was that by the end of this week we'll start to see the effect of mosques coming into play so what he's arguing. Lockdown which is social distancing? Fairly extreme level, but if people have to go out and the wearing a mask that extends the volume, if you like of the social distancing or the effect of it exactly, and then another another complicating factor that we've spoken about on this podcast before, and that these people both mentioned as well is the difficulty with this outbreak in Melbourne Way, it's happening. It's happening in essential services. You can't just shut down aged care for instance, so that is something that is making it more difficult than it would be if it was just people at the shops, but the actions that have been taken so far really are having an effect and we shouldn't be giving on them yet. Watch shot for is with more clusters are appearing or whether or not we know where all infections are coming from said, and the other part of Leslie's questioned that you just mentioned there. Norman is what makes this different to the first time around. Because that's something I. Don't know if I could answer well. What's different? Here's community spread so what? What happened first time around is that we imported all these cases from overseas, and there was community sprayed, but not quite as much as here because we closed on the borders, and then we did institute hotel, corn, teen and. And so we did kind of control it and we did have a fairly extreme form of lockdown, which was universal across the nation, and what's different now? A community outbreak has run away from us in this hotel quarantine in Melbourne got into very large numbers of people. You Know One one tower block and count in his three hundred cases cumulatively from there, and that's what's different. So what happened in March was lot of cases from overseas. They wear multiplying the wars communities spread, but it was largely within manageable Kosters we've got that under control with really severe lockdown. Effectively. Not many people were moving around at all in any state, so it was a bit more stringent than you're seeing in Victoria and that allow people to get the testing regime together. What's different now is this. Luke's far more like the this is. Why people are worried looks far more like the outbreaks in easily in the United States and elsewhere where the? The problem is not you've imported them from overseas. We've got our own native cases of Covid, nineteen in Australia which are spreading through the
Guest Teacher Erin Corn How To Succeed With Paid Social Ads
"Hi I'm Erin corn founder. Sherbourne Media Social Media advertising consultancy. Thank you for joining me today today. I'll be sharing the essential elements of a successful facebook and instagram advertising strategy. Strategy let's dive in the first album. Folks uncle setting before starting any marketing campaign. You need to clearly define your goals. Deciding on what you want to achieve at the beginning of a campaign makes it easier to measure analyze your results without goals and associated metrics. You won't be able to determine if your efforts are actually effective. Determining your facebook ad goals is a simple process. Just ask yourself. What do I want to achieve as a result of this campaign? Your advertising goals. Goals could be driving more sales increasing brand, awareness, building emails or increasing engagement with your Brad. Your goal should have a direct impact on your company's growth and success. Make sure you select goals that contribute to the bottom line, and not vanity metrics likes. Don't pay the bills. Some examples of advertising goals to avoid include getting five thousand lakes on my last post, gaining one hundred new followers, these add metrics not reflect any tangible results and shouldn't be perceived as facebook advertising goals. The second core element to ineffective, Pete Social Strategy is tracking and measurement in order to effectively measure the results of your pete social activity. It's essential to install the facebook pixel. The Face Pixel is a piece of code that allows you to monitor how successful your facebook ads actually are giving you more accurate stats, and it also allows you to create new audiences based on state traffic. For example you can target previous website visitors or create audiences of new. People who look like purchasers on your website. It's equally important to have analytics in place to track your overall digital activity, the facebook pixel will check your paid social efforts, but not your other channels like email, marketing and Google campaigns, I. recommend starting with Google analytics. Google analytics is easy to implement more importantly, it's free. It provides valuable insights that can help you understand your customers life cycle in shape future marking decisions. All you need is a Google, account. Speaking of your customer life cycle the third Alimentos successful Pete. Social, strategy is a well developed audience. The core of effect of social media marketing is about speaking to a specific audience audience personas provide a deep look at the demographics of your audience, including their interests fears needs and behaviors. Many advertisers confusing audience persona with target audience. These are not the same for example, a women's apparel company may define their audience as As females twenty five to forty in the US, however, this only captures the audience demographic to further develop the audience persona I would recommend that the include their target audiences, motivations, lifestyle, challenges, and behaviors for content marketing purposes. You need a well defined persona to help you deliver content that will be relevant and resonate with your audience. So how'd you get starting creating persona or personas through your business their endless templates? Templates available online, but I like to go through some of the key attributes to consider when developing a persona, or in some cases multiple personas for your business, starting with job title details about their role demographics including age gender salary, education, family status, their hobbies and lifestyles goals. What are their primary goals and how your business help them achieve them challenges. What are their challenges? And how will your business help solve? Solve, those problems. What are their personal values? And finally? What are some common objections to engaging with Your Business Brand? These mug instagram have a wealth of targeting options available to advertisers which include demographics interest customized based on your serum or Pixel, Data and look like audiences to help you reach new people whose interests are very similar to those of your customers. Your audience personas should inform the charging that you select. That brings us the fourth element you've chosen your goals, implemented tracking and establish an audience now what it's time to determine the tape of content you want to represent your business or brand, whether you're developing organic or paid content, it's key to maintain a cohesive look and feel across your channels. Your images and videos are the first thing. Potential customers will notice when they see your ads in visit. Your businesses profile the colors tone of voice and imagery contribute to an aesthetic. That will form your businesses identity. one-step advertisers often skip is the their content and messaging to the marketing funnel. The four stages of a funnel should include awareness, consideration, conversion, and loyalty as you develop your continent messaging, be mindful of stages in marketing funnel the way you speak to a customer who is unaware of your business should be very different than the way you speak to a previous customer I often use dating as an example. If is never met you, you don't walk into a room and ask them on a D.. However, this is often the way advertisers communicate with potential customers who have never heard of them starting the conversation with price, points and discounts, rather than demonstrating their value does not make an effective marketing message. The final of successful paid social program is actually your other marketing channels. These marketing channels can include website, email, marketing, search, engine, optimization, and search, marking amongst others whether you're service, based business or direct to consumer brand. Your Business Likely depends on other marketing channels to achieve your desired results the most successful social media campaigns are part of an integrated marketing strategy. Your social media should support your larger marketing strategy, and likewise other efforts should enhance your social media advertising.

"corning" Discussed on Techmeme Ride Home
"Corning has announced what it is calling. Gorilla Glass victis very gladatorial, sounding name, which I guess is the point, because corning says it can resist a six foot drop, and has twice the scratch resistance of the old gorilla glass. According says this is the toughest. It has ever created quoting the verge. It's a little known fact. That coatings gorilla glass hasn't gotten much better at resisting keys and coins, thus scratches since two thousand fourteen gorilla glass three, and is arguably gotten slightly worse sense. Our reporting showed that gorilla glass four actually performed worse than some tests grill glass five was in the middle and gorilla glass six didn't improve any further since corning was more focused on making your phone survive. Survive a nasty tumble instead, but according claims the new victis glass. There's no gorilla glass seven. Just victis can do both drops and scratch resistant simultaneously with no known trade offs. The company says it has twice these scratch resistant gorilla glass, six four times, the resistance of competing glass and a representative victis clad dummy phone can't survive up to a two meter or six and a half foot drop. That drop resistance is nothing to sneeze at. It's a foot and a quarter higher than cording quoted for gorilla glass, six one point, six meters, or five point, two five feet, or the one point, two meters, three point nine feet. The company claimed gorilla glass five was capable of. We've theoretically gone from shoulder height to head height survivability just for years, which is good news. If you ever feel like holding your phone up to your ear, people still do that.

Could Science Build a Better Grain?
"The ever increasing need to feed Earth's growing population and not always cautious ways that we grow our food are some of the factors that have put our plants environment in peril. Farming accounts for nearly a quarter of human emissions that are warming the atmosphere, and as much as half of that comes from plowing the soil to grow crops, such as wheat, corn and soybeans, which releases carbon, dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, the latter byproduct of fertilizer use, but researchers have been working on ways to reduce the harmful environmental effects of agriculture. One potentially promising innovation is a grain the goes by the trademarked name, her Kneza like familiar grains it can be made into flour for use inbred breakfast, cereal, and other foods, and also as an ingredient in products, ranging from beard ice cream. But unlike many other grains, Kerns is a perennial plant meaning that once it's planted. It'll keep coming back up year after year. It doesn't have to be replanted from scratch year, so it cuts down on labor. In addition, Kerns a has a deep root system it reaches over ten feet or three meters into the soil, and may help to sequester or capture atmospheric carbon that root system could also make more resistant to the impact of drought related to climate change in some areas. Currency was picked by the Land Institute a Salina Kansas based organization founded in Nineteen, seventy, six, the founder West Jackson recognized that a big problem of modern agriculture was that it was wearing the soil by focusing upon monoculture, growing a single crop in a certain area as that practice intensified on modern farms. It's destructive. Downsides became more and more evident in the form of erosion and worn out soil that required increasing amounts of fertilizer, creating increasingly polluted groundwater Jackson saw the development perennial grains to replace annual ones as a vital part of the solution to those problems. The Land Institute's website explains given that grains makeup over seventy percent of our global caloric consumption and over seventy percent of our. Our global croplands, transitioning from an extractive annual model to a perennial model is the best chance we have create truly regenerative food future, but developing new food crops is difficult and time intensive challenge back in Nineteen ninety-three scientists at the Rodale Institute and Other Research Organization identified a plant called intermediate wheat grass species related to wheat as a promising candidate that might be developed into a perennial grain. They worked with researchers from the United States. Department of Agriculture to breed the plant and improve its fertility and seed size in two thousand and three, the Land Institute began working with intermediate wheat grass as well after years of breeding the plant. They developed Kerns the trade name for their variety. In some ways, the process of developing a new crop hasn't changed much since prehistoric times. It involves breeding generation after generation of a plant taking the best from each new batch, and reading them together an effort to promote whatever desirable characteristics your seeking, however plant breeders these days have some tools that the ancients lacked the land institute employed a process called molecular breeding, in which they use genetic analysis to determine the traits of the plant should have even before it grows to full. Full size in order spot plants, but the most potential for breeding. We spoke with Rachel thrower the institute's Chief Strategy Officer. She explained it's taken us ten thousand years, and an intensified two hundred years of modern reading to get the crops. We have today. It's taken twenty to get Kerns to where it is, it might take another twenty to get it to competing at scale with the annuals. But in the effort to turn Kerns a into a commercially viable crop. There's a lot of work ahead. Stroller says that researchers are now working to increase the size number of seeds produced by each plant, and to increase the height of the plants. One drawback of currency is the unlike conventional wheat. It doesn't yet lend itself to free threshing, in which the edible grain is easily loosened from the plant. It instead requires another step called D. hulling to remove the skin of the seed before it can be turned. Turned into flour, that's because the stems remain green, after the plant matures conventional wheat withers, and is thus more easily separated in addition to breeding currency to make suitable for free threshing in the future, scientists are working to make the yield produced by real working farms match what they've been able to achieve on their research plots to that end. They're gathering data from the farmers to help figure out how to time the harvest. What settings would optimal for combines and other factors that might make the fields more productive. Researchers are also working with Baker's chefs, brewers and distillers to develop products that utilize curtains to help create a future market for it. One product already on the market is long route. Pale Ale who's maker Patagonia provision sites Kerns environmental positives in its marketing and last year general mills. CASCADIA and farms brand produced a limited edition. Honey toasted Kerns, a serial, which it sold to raise funds for the researchers. We also spoke via email was Steve, Coleman and assistant professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources and Ohio State University, and the CO author of two thousand eighteen bioscience article on Kerns cultivation methods. He said up and working with Kerns F for ten years, and it's been a fun adventure. I think one of the things that I've really come to appreciate. Is that successfully? Domesticating developing a new crop requires more work than anyone can really appreciate.

Some of them because they care about how foods produced and the environment, others are purely investors for them. The land is a financial asset, but they understand that this asset can't increase in value if they protected. Dan Charles NPR

Spanish brandy well placed in this regard is not only is it often sell for a lower price than the more venerable French brands, but it has already started to innovate. Torres has begun to expand into flavored and spiced varieties designed to appeal more to younger ballots.

UFC featherweight champ defends title in split decision
"I Will Fight Island was officially christened tonight for the UFC in Abu. Dhabi there was no baptism to be had in the main event of UFC two fifty one. What's going on everybody? Welcome to the official. You have to fifty one post fight. Show here on, May, finding dot com I'm Mike Heck location this week from Boston Massachusetts visiting the parents this weekend. That is Jose Jose. Main Event Kamara, who's been retains a welterweight title against Whore Mazal. Challenger looked pretty darn good in that first round. I'm pretty surprised that judges gave in that first round, but it was the much fresher champion that was able to sort of chip away at the always game, or hey mazda throughout the fire Ab. Fresher champion but Komo. Zeman was basically been in camps since beginning of this year, despite was like Ben Booked and booked in both supposed to fight earlier this by giving burns, and also muzzle steps in, so yes, he's finally fresher because he he's had the full camp and everything but I think Kamara wasn't one hundred percent in that fight, either considering this long extended, Feick at Ala, similar to twenty Ferguson with all these these these fights falling apart, but Kamara who's been one nonetheless, might not have been the most exciting fight. I saw a couple of tweets complaining about the fight and I really take that. I felt it was a lot of fans that were on this very muzzle hype train. He's on the video game cover on this baptism round the resurrection Super Necessary Punches bef tile, and that they were expecting violence, even mice I myself said fight between WHO's minimize well probably has a higher chance of ending in a violent way, but it did not come out who's been one I had them winning all five rounds the first round I guess. Didn't really matter to me. Who won that? I still come who's been what at least four of the rounds comfortably? The people complain about. The foot stopped the wrestling the headbutts. That stuff will come out. Who's been did what he had to do to win. That's exactly why I thought he would. Take, her might as well because all the time Mazal taking this fight on short notice. Kamara also took this fire. On short notice gets an extra a completely different fighter between Gilbert Burns as well. It's completely rechange leftist camp Had his new trevor wittman is corn for the first time fighting the guy all this bad blood is in the air all the pressures on him, and perform a like we ourselves, said all the pressures on who's Madonna not not a whole lot on Mazal, but at the end of the day. Who's been doing what he had to do? I didn't have a problem with the way fought. Might not have been the most exciting, but if I was going to pick up, predict away whose men would pull this off. This is exactly how I thought he would do it. Yeah, when you get a fight like this and you have a guy as hot as MAS. Bat brings in a lot of the casual fan base. Does your watch? As many events as we watch, and some of the hardcore fans watch everything so most people expected this fight to go exactly that way I thought the first row was going to be the most interesting round, obviously, because of Mazda was going to get it done. He's probably going to have to do it in the first five minutes, and this is the fire. We got like Mara. Who's been defends his title. For the second time. It was another classic who's been like performance and he gets a one-sided win and highly anticipated main event so in the end. We like to talk about the overall letter grade, but it felt like just kind of looking at the time slot when we're all said and done. We're getting ready to hit record here. We're just like man this is this is super late like I feel like the card and the whole night in a weird way. Wet Kinda slow did it not. started off really really quickly. Might just. Like I feel like the first few flew by and all of a sudden I had been watching fights for two and a half three hours and I'm like wow, this fight is cars going quickly I like this pace, and then we the main card and Amanda he boss comes in, and just submits patriots immediately i. wish went exactly as I expected, but then there was decision with Rosen on drugs, and then even Yawn Aldo finish, but it was in the fifth round, so there's still basically fought for twenty five minutes, and then we get twenty five minutes, Vulcanology Holloway and then we get twenty five minutes of in Mazda, also of these we've seen. We saw that graphic on the screen like. All the cards are three title fights, and like we used to fourteen had like Woodley Maya in Jones, a cormet and Cyborg Abinger, and then to seventeen to five those had some bangers like like two to seventeen had three epic fights three like violent, like just three of the craziest finishes you'll see. And then, of course to a five, the CONOR McGregor show, and then to seventeen had the DC Jones trilogy, so I think we're a little maybe. We'll. We'll spoiled on these three. These three title fight cars while we're expecting something like that and I loved all all great fights off spectacular fights, but I think a lot of fans are tuning in to see fight island. In the Mazar strain, all these title-fights might have been. A limited. I could see why they might have been little disappointed. I didn't have a problem with it, but probably was the night Dana White wanted in terms of finishes. Yeah, the main event may have disappointed some people but for. The Sake, this is like the best thing that could have happened for the welterweight division like if you're burns. Edwards these guys are pretty happy right now. Especially Gilbert Burns. One hundred percent I mean we. We set it on count after it was on what the heck or or post eyesore produce. All kind of blend together at this point in the summer, but we. We said if Moslem Dole wins. That's going to be a problem for the US's pockets the welterweight division I mean. We were talking about him fighting the bringing the both belts so that the Conor McGregor. The table and all this. Kamara who's been one and it's? It's a no brainer that Gobert burn gets three matches. Suppose he should've been fighting tonight. before covid nineteen October, nineteen. That's applaud the car, so yeah, for all the way division, and the the the martial art fans of the world that don't like quote unquote. Holding divisions I think that's a good thing, but I. Honestly I love chaos at Moscow had one I. Think I, think it would have been fun time in the world of May. And Mazda all. Let's be clear. We all know this. He was the a side heading into this fight. He's the reason. There was a lot of buzz and a lot of fanfare when you had a guy like game bread in the street that he's on. That's what happens, but a lot of people wanNA know where he goes from here. Because despite losing the fight tonight, he still has a ton of options moving forward. Chaos can still rain in some way Jose. Can you say that again? You cut off quick second. Chaos can rain. For horny Mas at all got about it because he's got so many options moving forward despite the loss tonight. Yeah, I mean Hoy Mazdas. All I'm Kamara. WHO's been himself set like he's GonNa. He's like. He's like he's GonNa. Lose all these like excuses. Bill didn't talk the finance days notice flu costs. The country doesn't have was coach in the gym, covert nineteen this and that so like I. Don't think I of course I think Mazda obviously cooled anytime. You lose. You cool a little bit Conor McGregor and Nadir's, and it's such an insane finish that they run it back, and you have another epic fight like that, but for Mazda all you're obviously going to a little bit but he himself said. Let me, get a couple of wins and they'll run back. I'm sure he want. He would love to five full camp but the Colby College. Is there I? Think that is going to drum up a whole lot of interest I. think people might even be more interested in that fight in the dynamic between those two fires, oarsmen and I think that Kobe Covington already Moslems? Fight does not need a title online. That's just two guys. They hate each other I wanNA break brick on each other's faces. WHO'S MCCANN? Fight Gillard. Leeann, Edwards of course out there, wonder boy thompsons, working his way up Santana, positive I think has covered to so he somewhere out there, so the welterweight division will move, but for now Mazda all. Of course cooled, but he's still I think still the hottest commodity hundred seventy pounds.

The Fat burn Fix And Our Growing Susceptibility To Viral Infections - With Dr. Cate Shanahan
"Welcome to the model. Show this fitness and nutrition expert Shawn Stevenson and I'm so grateful to be tuning today. This episode here I am so pumped about. This is one of my favorite physicians. One of my favorite scientists and she's got a new project is really helping shed some light on a very very misunderstood topic in this the topic of body, fat. Sustain that we tend to see is a very cosmetic target is a very cosmetic issue for hundreds of millions of people right now, but in truth, our body fat is a major player in so many different dynamic ways as far as our health as far as our ability to fight infections, viral infections, even and I think that this is going to be incredibly enlightening and something that you're going to walk away with having a better understanding of this. Incredible tissue that we're all carrying around in what's led to the surplus that were carrying around for many of us, and also some more intelligent ways that we can address this in not just for cosmetic issues, but to truly get our society healthier. And hope that you've been employing different strategies to get yourself healthy right now, and also your loved ones. It's more important than ever to reach out. Make sure that our friends and family are doing some of the basic necessities of just getting some fresh air, going out and walk move their bodies, engaging in some stress management practices, and we've done episodes dedicated to these things, and also making sure that they're getting in some high-quality foods as well as supersport right now, but we just recently went on our first outing since the corn team began first outing to a restaurant with our FRIZZ nextdoor, nextdoor, neighbours, families both wint. And it was very a felt like I was visiting another planet, I definitely felt a little bit like that scene and back to the future when Michael J. Fox goes back to pass, and he's got like a has met suit on, and he winds up in a barn, and these folks happened upon him in his hands. Matsue with this delorean in the sign has his comic book. which is like the cover? The Comic Book Kinda shows what the future looks like are. These alien invaders look like. So just to get into the restaurant you walk through. The. Lobby is about five feet of lobby, and you have to wear masks. Go through the five feet, but then there people already there sitting at tables there socially distance. Of course you know one table apart, but they've got. You know they don't have mask on because you can eat with a mask on yet. Until maybe we get permanent mass installed on her face faces in little openings, but the science there. Wasn't really accurate. You know like that five feet, but then once you go pacify feet. Take your mask off, and you can each her. You know whatever your therefore, but he's a very strange experience. Because the waitress had on, the has metsu she had on the face shield. She had on the mask at that point I was like why be here in like there's so much that goes into it, and it's so abnormal. We should just go ahead and you know. Make dinner ourselves have family. Get together something like that. It's just an added. stressor is so much uncertainty in all. The tables had to be labeled that this table has been sanitized in, you know. We've hit it with the flame thrower all these different stuff just to feel comfortable going outside, and it was like this was like a you know there's a strip mall and everybody is just a very dystopia and situation, and this is the situation that we're facing right now. There is a very infectious. Virus that is that we're dealing with as a society and at its core. We Really WanNA. Look at this what we've been dedicated to. How do we get our citizens healthier? so that were not as susceptible to this virus in the mini viruses that are to come because this is right now. This is just the first of many that we're going to be faced with as humanity you know, and the thing that is overlooked in that I've really been working to up level the conversation is. As a species? What are the things that make us more susceptible to viral infections? What are the things that we can do to help? Improve our bodies response because in truth we've had such a relationship with viruses throughout human evolution that we are in fact, the human genome is eight percent over eight percent in dodge in his viruses that we are. Our genome is made of. We've had such interaction with viruses. We are made viruses on that level talking about our human genome, what our jeans are made of the human genes with the things that make us human. We're part virus. And even more tangible aspect because I think there's really a hard pill for us to swallow as society right now that we are virus ourselves. But you know this is something that we can test track now. We have some affirmation to the fact that we all are carrying upwards of three hundred trillion virus particles in and on our bodies all the time. We are. We're like a playground for viruses and. Pathogenic! Many of them Symbiotic. But this equation really plays into. How healthy are we interact with other people's virus load? How healthy are we or what can happen to damage our health immune system health that even the pathogenic viruses that were carrying right now can become opportunistic and take advantage of our system and make us sick.
Honeybees Need Your Help
"Today, a non coronavirus. You about honeybees from a guy who knows all about. Them Sami Ramsey Aka Dr Bugs. First of all can i. just ask you how you got that nickname, so actually got that title Doctor. Bugs while working at the Supreme Court of the United States I work with the Supreme Court in. I know, I know I was the only intern some measure and the deputy clerk of the court referred to me as bugs, and then told him that I was going for my doctor. He's like Oh, Dr Bugs so honestly, the Supreme Court just did not know how to handle your entomologist and all they could do was just yell but. They really did not know what to do with that. And of course, nickname stuck, which is perfect for savvy. A honeybee researcher at the US Department of Agriculture also props to the Supreme Court for taking an entomology and turn the best science. Yeah, I, said it. Okay. So how is play an important role in our ecosystem and for our economy, but the cells as you might have heard are not doing so hot. we lost. About forty percent of our honeybee colonies left with deeply concerning and unfortunately, as continued a trend over the past decade, or so of US losing close to thirty percent of our bees every year. And that could have huge consequences for all of us. So today the show what's killing the Bees Sammy Ramsey tells us what's driving these die-offs including a wild critter straight out of a horror movie. And he tells us what we can do to help the base. Two semi your friends, the honeybees. They're not doing well. Can you give us a quick snapshot of Why that matters Honeybees are dramatically importance to the environment in a number of different ways We could survive without them. We would just be really really bummed out because we would lose things like coffee. Avocados lemons limes oranges. Fruits and vegetables are pollinated by Honeybees, and while they wouldn't disappear entirely the huge amounts that we produce them in with simply be unsustainable, and they will become incredibly expensive prohibitively, so honeybees are worth more than eighteen billion dollars to the US economy every single year, primarily because of their pollination services in the night off that you mentioned earlier. Is this at all related to you know news reports that came out a few years back about bees kind of vanishing. Is that related to this dollars that a different thing? Who Okay here we go, so? We were talking about the colony collapse disorder. The defining quality was really that would open a colony that had been fairly productive, and just days before, and there would be pretty much nobis there. We have not seen that particular set of issues in more than half a decade now. We don't know whether it was a virus. Weather is a novel parasite whether it was just the confluence of. Of all of these different issues all coming together that the bees been dealing with stress climate change because it disappeared so sharply that we still haven't had the time to fully flesh out what occurred there. Okay, so so that is not what's going on now. That has subsided. We're not exactly sure what caused it. We're not exactly sure what ended it, but we're glad it's gone. So let's talk about the actual issues. That's making it hard for the bees to survive now so there's a triangle. Factors called the three piece, and that stands for parasites, pesticides and poor nutrition. These are the three main issues currently impacting honeybees now while colony collapse disorder is not still e problem. It did open our eyes to the fact that our bees are really unhealthy. What is? Is potentially the case. Is that colony collapse disorder isn't the issue. The bees were dealing with, but just sort of the punctuation mark at the end of a very long and very concerning sentenced about the state of honeybees around the world, so let's talk about the I p. the parasites you study that one that sounds like honestly to me a transformer. Tell me about that one. Varroa destructor does sound like a transformer, and while you might think that name is melodramatic, it's not I mean this parasite is off the wall wacky this parasite small about one point two millimeters long it climbs onto a be, and it will actually wedge itself between the exoskeletal plates that make up the bee's body so pretty much the be skin. It wedges itself under their. Their kinda levers one of the plates up and breaks through the skin under that with this mouse parts, and it releases this cocktail of digestive enzymes that break down the tissue in that region into a slurry, is literally turning the beasant cream of honeybees soup, and then sucking that out of their body so deeply concerned. You didn't have to say that with the Soup Yeah Sorry I you. It's a very good metaphor, but you didn't have to do. Well I. Want People to understand the horror story that honeybees are living through on a regular basis. It gives us more of a respect for them. You know. Yeah, okay, so let me get this right so this particular parasite this in. Might you know the way that it acts on the bees is extremely destructive in an also kind of them up suffer even more from poor nutrition exactly so let's talk about poor nutrition. What does food for a be look like in in? Why aren't they having much access to it? As they need great question so honeybees, the visit tons and tons of. Of Flowers, and they drink the nectar from these flowers. They transported back to the colony They regurgitate it into the cells. at they dehydrate it and turned it into honey they also collect pollen from these flowers, and all that pollen is used as a source of protein to then rear their offspring. So when these BS don't have a lot of pollen or nectar, they begin to starve, and they go into this stressed out sort of crisis mode. There's a lot of stress that they deal with as a result of that, and unfortunately, it's not just the matter of starvation. Them having a diet that is not. That can be really problematic. An individual, who is constantly eating French fries isn't starving, but they don't have the full complement of nutrition that they need in order to be healthy, and that's sort of the scenario that we have the bees in at this point and that doesn't allow the bees the sort of diversity that they need when they're feeding. Of Our land has been turned over for of course, the development for. So. There's a lot of monocultures out there of plants producing the exact same nutritive in their pollen. Okay, so final P. Pesticides. What are we talking about exactly? And what's kind of the problem? pesticides win used responsibly can be very effective at reducing the numbers of destructive insects that are destroying crops and keeping the cost of producing these crops down Now we have a lot of pesticides that are systemic there absorbed by the seed, and they ended up in different parts of the plant, such as the pollen or the nectar that has been collected by the bees and brought back. Back to the colony, and it moves all through the colony in addition to that there are chemicals like my decides mixed in with the herbicides and weed killers. People sprayed on their lawn, mixed with the Agricultural Insecticides while those chemicals may be used responsibly. We actually don't know what the interacting impact is for all of those different chemicals together. We've found that colonies on average have between three and four different chemicals in the colony anyone point and upwards of fourteen times, which can be really concerning, because we just can't account for all of the different effects that can have Gotcha Gotcha. So Okay Sammy if we as humans don't take actions to intervene. What. Do People that study? These think is going to happen. ooh, okay. We don't take action to intervene. I can tell you very clearly. There's going to be a dramatic economic impact without the bees. To produce those plants and native pollinators would take up some of the slack, but we would not be able to produce them nearly the large amounts that we produce them in. But I do want to say. Very clearly that this is being blown out of proportion by the magic of the Internet, people think that everyone will die if the B.'s disappear, but there are plenty of wind pollinated plants, corn rice, that cultures have lived off of for ages, and they've been fine. The problem is we will lose so much diversity in our diet and food would be a lot more expensive because there would be a massive drop in supply. Gotcha, so okay, what kind of solutions or things you know that we can do as a society would have the most impact in helping the Honeybee. Wonderful that Anyone can do. leave those dandelions alone. Don't mow the lawn in a way that is getting rid of all of the the difference Dandelions and things that we typically considered to be weeds, the wildflowers that spring up in your lawn. Bees love them. Leave them alone nowhere. We killer on those. And if you really want to be a huge help, plant tons of flowers and your front and backyard make a be sanctuary out of your living space. If more people did that, the issues that the bees deal with in terms of poor nutrition would be mitigated in a number of different ways, because bees are capable of self medicating if they can get a lot of resin and different kinds of nectar and pollen from flowers, able to medicate themselves, but they can't do that when they only have the offerings of that one plant. Okay Sammy I appreciate you and I appreciate the bees hall. That, warms my heart to hear I think. B.'s actually really love being appreciated. Well. Don't we? All I'm going to go home and not kill any dandelions implant some flowers. My Work here is done. Sammy Ramsey Aka Dr. Bucks and Tamala just with the US Department
Restoring the American Chestnut
"Things got yeah. This novel pathogen ideas terrifying especially when it comes to like with covert. It's got some twenty billion people to work its way through. And the chestnut, almost being jack-of-all-trades in being widespread was probably one of the perfect recipe. Check boxes to say like okay. This is how you have. An invasion meltdown caused the collapse of species. It's scary and it's so sad, but at the same time. Is Much as I've never seen a large chestnut tree, or been able to appreciate them, for what they were were lucky and very fortunate that there are still sprouts there are these these trees are still on the landscape in some capacity. I mean it is kinda functionally extinct. I. Don't know if that's the proper scientific way of putting it, but. There's chestnuts still out there today. Where did the American Chestnut Foundation kind of say? We have to do something. What was the impetus for that and kind of winded it happen, and what was those early stages Kinda like for it? Sure so so functionally extinct. That's that's the term I think for for the American, just not in words Aso a lot of people think it's extinct or endangered or threatened. It's none of those things it doesn't fit any of those categories, because there are so many sprouts out the wild, so it was estimated before billion in the eighteen hundreds at the height of the species population. The blight swept through reduce them to basically sprouts, and the under story so most hardwoods. If you've got them down, they die of the blight bill re sprout. Sprout burn readily just not does that, so they sprout. They get the blake usually by age seven fifteen. They Divac, they re sprout. They get the blame back. They re sprout so so that's what you see in the forest today, the eastern us on their an estimated four, hundred thirty five million trees, so so lot still a lot, but most of them do not reach flowering stage. We think about two million, or so are probably still flowering on somewhere around point, five percent of the population is probably still flowering and producing knots. And that's what's been used at a lot of different breeding programs and eastern us when the blight I went through the USDA's stepped in a sense implant explorers to China to say hey, finding replacement for the great American Chestnut, and so they brought over. Chinese chestnut, so that's about Chinese just nuts on the landscape. They are all over the place. You see them on farms. The USDA real big push for people to plant Chinese chestnuts. My popol planted them on his farm, but they they couldn't replace the just the American chestnut, because they typically they have been bred for Russian. Typically don't grow as tall as the American chestnut. They are very branchy, so the timber isn't as of high quality all as America's. And so that was one of the first attempts to try and save the American chestnut, or restore it or replace it, and then, since then since the thirties on through, people have tried various breeding techniques. They've tried spraying. The fungus was something they've tried systemic fungicides in the fifties when nuclear radiation Israel real huge people were taking chestnuts and throwing them in nuclear reactors to get them to mutate totally serious. And, so you've got plantations of irradiated ulmer radiated chestnuts. Most of them are in Maryland. Okay up ground where a lot of that defense. Stuff was happening, so makes us. That might be another podcast, but but there's this uranium question to try and find resistance within native. American chestnuts and people went pretty much given hope in the seventies and eighties stuff still going on, but at a much lower rate, and in the early eighties there was a corn geneticist Charles Burnham. He said Hey. Trees or plants? Why don't we use plant breeding the we using corn and things like that and use that for trees as well to impart resistance. So, that was the start of the American nomination. Arkham Burnham and some other founders I got together they the various, all nonprofit, scientifically minded organizations and say hey, let's try something called back crossbreeding to get a light resistance, and who the American chestnut and when they started, they thought that blight resistance was very simple traits that it was only two or three genes that controlled this trade, and therefore back crossing would work after you get above three genes back. Crossing really isn't active. The the numbers required too high and astronomical talk about exponential. You need exponentially large. Populations as you increase the number of genes for traits, so it was a it was a noble thought and would that it that be that resistance was only controlled by three. We know now that light resistance is controlled by many martines than three so a while back crossing itself isn't the end all be all American chestnut restoration, TCI the American Chestnut Foundation has embarked on other avenues to try and restore the American chestnut, and but but that was what what began the foundation

N. N. asking that question those numbers gotta happen I'm it's a given the go after trump they're gonna have a gotcha questions you know if Chuck Todd is at the debate any of the debates with president trump he'll ask him should you exist which is a stupid question but the fact of the matter is Bernie's gonna have to answer a lot of questions between convention and November third all right right now you're already seeing those questions comments and because if there's there there truly is an agenda to get rid of trump in the leftist media we all get that right well if they're seeing the numbers that they believe that Bernie can't beat trump then you're probably going to see more of this type of questioning in other interviews you're going to see that those types of articles written because they would rather have somebody who they think can beat trump I don't think they have anybody right now that can be drop but they don't believe in Bernie and the idea is to beat trump so if they don't believe in Bernie you can bet this type of questioning is going to go on more and more that's Anderson Cooper there are sixty minutes but you'll see that more and more the back and forth and that's part of the valley well it's especially since you have that worry in the media that Bernie Sanders can't win right and so he is going to be he is going to be at the look they've already called him a cult yeah yeah yeah verdict is referred to.
