"And so I got my application in and my resume in, just at the last minute. And bingo, they liked what they saw and they hired me. And didn't care that I was 60 years old. That was a good thing. I'd like for you to complete this statement in my garden not half. I have deer. The town I live in and I live in town. I do not live outside of town. My backyard has been totally destroyed by deer. They are sleeping in our backyard. They are grazing in our backyard. If I have anything back there, I have Holly iris, daffodils, azaleas, which they seem to have left alone. And a lot of hard work that now doesn't look like I've done a whole lot. The deer have got me very depressed. Do you have any future plans for your garden? Dealing with a deer or anything? Yes. We are going to put a fence up to see if we can stop some with that. But I am concentrating a lot on planting things that number one, I don't have to do a lot of maintenance with. And number two, the deer don't like. I happen to really like iris. So I'm going to put a lot of iris in and they don't like iris at all. I'm just going to landscape with some nice shrubbery and things that they will pretty much leave alone. We'll give us some hints on what that might be. From talking with people here at work, it varies. They don't eat all of my zales. There's just a few that they eat. So I'm staying away from those areas. They don't bother my chameleons. They don't bother my Laura anymore. They don't eat my nandina, and I have some box wood and they don't eat it. I have kind of a little area. So I have some hello Boris out there. They don't bother it either. Those are kind of some of the things I'm going with. And I still make mistakes I'll buy something and put it out there and next day it's gone. There's a shrub now that a lot of people are using called distilling them. They don't seem to bother that in my yard either. It's a beautiful dark green shrub. I've had really good luck with it. It's just kind of hard. So I'm going to reduce my variety and kind of stick with a basic. Just so I have green out there that I'll bear. Is there anything else that should have asked you? I will tell you that working here at hillson dales a state has been one of the most pleasant jobs I have ever had. I won't say the easiest job I've ever had because physically when you're in your 60s, this can be kind of hard for you to do. But I'm lucky I was blessed with a pretty good constitution. I'm able to handle most of the things they give me. The only thing I can't handle, I can't climb up on the roof of the house. I did it once, I almost didn't get down. Well, the guy had to talk me down..

"The gorgeous floral arrangements located throughout the house. Tell us how those arrangements come about. What was given to me when I got my job was the chore of designing floral arrangements that would go with the house. I think the one thing that kind of scared me was they said the one requirement is they would like me to use only plant material out of the guard. In other words, don't go to the grocery store. Don't go to the whole south florist. Find everything on the property. To a lot of people that sounds like, well, it's a big garden. There ought to be a lot of things there. In actuality, it's testing everything and trying to figure out whether it will hold up in a floral arrangement or not. That was one of my first big chores. And I'm still working on that. Experimenting with different preservatives and also just trying out different flowers from the garden. My second challenge, though, was to put something appropriate in the house. Container wise, and also trying to keep in mind that the foundation and also misses Calloway's grandchildren, who are trustees. They wanted something in that house that was, let's say reminiscent of what misses Callaway would have appreciated. Maybe not necessarily done herself, but that she would have liked it. Luckily she's in the same generation as my grandmother's were. So I kind of pulled from that. I do look at the rooms. I look at the style of the rooms and then I design something that I feel will go with that room. Keeping in the back of my mind would misses Callaway like this. So that's always kind of a little bit of a chore there. Maybe I'm asking her for a little bit of guidance as I do my flower arrangements. Then, of course, the other chores just keeping them all week long, making sure that they hold up our guests, which were accomplishing that pretty well. Or you're doing repetition in your designs or is each wake up brand new design. I will say that it is somewhat repetitious, not the same flowers and not always put together in the same way. But it is in the same location every week, such as maybe it's on a marble top chess. That is where they want the flowers. They don't need them anywhere else in the room. And I use the same container to a certain extent they are the same general size, I would say. But I do change the way they look, according to what flowers I have to use and what season it is. You're actually taking cuttings to go in there at this stage. Mike these are arguments. Yes, whenever possible. Now, every now and then I might have to rely on something I have to purchase, such as in October. I am using pumpkins. We do not grow pumpkins on the property. In my arrangement in the music room, it is an arrangement that has a very large green squash that looks like a flattened pumpkin. It's setting in the arrangement with grapevines in circling it..

"I'm Laura Rice in for David Brown. The Texas Gulf Coast is watching tropical storm activity that threatens heavy rain and flooding will have more on that coming up in our Texas news roundup and later in the show. But first more on the ongoing threat of the pandemic. There was a little bit of optimism in the Texas Tribune's latest covid numbers. Both the average number of new cases and hospitalizations are down from a week ago, perhaps thanks in part to the fact that the number of vaccine doses is up. But the lagging indicator the average number of new deaths contributed to Covid 19 is up as students have been gathering in K through 12 classrooms. It's no surprise that we've seen the number of cases in younger people go up compared to the summer, the state reports close to 74,000, Texas, students have had a positive case since the school year began. That's a little less than 1.5% of the total student enrolment. As counted at the end of January last year. The numbers have dropped dramatically from a high the week before, but it's all still been enough to temporarily shut down dozens of districts across the state. In an effort to prevent the spread. Some districts have been mandating masks for weeks now, despite Governor Greg Abbott's order against such mandates. Now Abbott in Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton are making good on the threat to sue the school districts that defied the order. The lawsuit announced Friday is against Elgon, Galveston Richardson Round rock, Sherman and spring I s D s. But one interesting thing about that list is that it's not at all comprehensive and doesn't include some of the biggest districts to defy the order. Brian Lopez has been following the story for the Texas Tribune, where he is public education reporter. Brian, Welcome to the Texas Standard. Hello. Thank you for having me. I know there are a lot more districts that defied the governor's ban. How many more and what do you make of this list of six? Uh, well, you know, according to, you know, reporting, I think there's about close to 100 school districts across the state that are defying the governor's order. And it's frank mask mandates. Um, you know, for variety of reasons, the most obvious one is to keep Children and their families safe. According to those schools, Um you know, a lot of Local health authorities have mandated that you know the schools do it, and and they're going ahead with those orders instead of listening to the governor in terms of these six districts. It's really unclear right now. Why? The attorney general and the governor have gone after these school districts. Uh, there's no real rhyme or reason right now that we know of in the information that we have, they haven't really come out and said You know why these school districts? Um, what is interesting when you just look at the map is all near the you know, big districts that have mathematics, You know, like Houston. Dallas and Austin. So that's something maybe we can look at to see if maybe that is some sort of, you know threat to those big school districts. Also, what's interesting about The governor's order is, you know, in previous reporting the governor himself and the attorney general has said that you know they don't have the power to enforce this anti mask mandate. It really lies in the hands of the each county's district attorney, and you know, in and in cities like the big Cities, Just those DS Arnott. Um, enforcing the governor's order. So it's it's really Trying to figure out who's in power here right now, and hopefully we'll have some clarity for for those school districts and those families in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, there's another big challenge facing really almost all Texas school districts, and that's teacher shortages. Can you quantify for that? That for us or is that difficult to do? It's It's a little difficult. Um, just because the state doesn't really keep you know a comprehensive list of you know what areas they're short on. They don't keep any data on how many teachers are either, uh, retiring early retiring. You know when they're supposed to, or the reasons why they're leaving the way that we're able to kind of Uh, report on this is through the districts themselves euthanized the our largest school district lost over 700 employees over the last over the last year. You know, they have to make that up. Other school districts. Smaller school districts they lost over 200 are still needing 200 schoolteachers. That's in the clean ized, and that's a big number for You know both those schools and and something, you know, They told me that they haven't There's always a teacher shortage, but they just This is an unusually high number of teachers and and we got to go back to. You know, the pandemic that has kind of just exacerbated this issue. Um, you know, teachers that I've spoken to, you know, have said, you know. They're scared for their lives. The pandemic If they're not, you know, overly scared for the life of the pandemic has increased our workload with, you know, teaching both in person and online. Cause stress at home. Uh and you know there's still being overworked and and in some cases underpaid and so, you know, A lot of these teachers, especially those in the stem areas are leaving for You know, jobs where they can get paid more and and have the the work life balance that they need.

America Is Facing a Ketchup Packet Shortage
"From wondering. I'm david brown. And this is business words daily on this thursday april fifteen. There are two kinds of people in this world. those who slather catch up on everything and everyone else. If you love nothing more than a pile of fries doused in the red stuff well brace yourself for some bad news. Ketchup is the latest victim of the pandemic shortages. Yes throughout this past year. We've been keeping you updated on products that have been wiped out by supply. chain disruptions. hoarding were sheer popularity. You may recall the great toilet paper run of march and april last year. Or mason jar mayhem in september. Maybe you're still getting over the great grape nuts drought from a couple of months ago. The changes we've made to our behavior and challenges in the manufacturing sector have created multiple ripple effects and the latest unlikely victim. Is the ketchup sachet. You know those little red and white package you get to go orders. Ketchups top dog is kraft heinz company. Heinz ketchup dominates the market.

We think of wall street or the financial centers of london nerve. Tokyo shanghai but sort of solis sort of dry. The fun in business is always that human element and so the founder of wonder. Which is this podcasting company based in los angeles. He'd come up with this idea. What if you could kind of go deep into the heart of some of these great battles like coke versus pepsi nike versus adidas or nintendo vs. Sony your net flicks versus hbo even before that. You probably didn't have blockbusters. Did you have blocked jason lately. Yeah okay well so there you go. So everyone kind of connects to these major brands. Right and in fact a lot of us feel very think about how you have apple people windows people. I mean we invest a lot of our identity into these brands. Will that i think is what business wars is all about. We're sort of looking at these battles between these titans. A lot of these brands that have become household names. And we're looking at it from the inside out so sometimes you get a sense of how. The ceo or the entrepreneur started up a business because they wanted to get rich or they just wanted to get someone's attention sometimes. It's because they want to beat the other guy you know. They think they can do computers better. You think about the steve jobs story for example is those kinds of stories and when we started to go deeper and started to do some the early research on the program we realized. Wow it's calm surprising that this hasn't been mind more. You think about the recent movie. What is it the movie about. Ford and ferrari in a way. That's a kind of business where unto itself and it's so cinematic and there are these larger than life characters behind the scenes and those are the kind of characters we try to bring out in business wars usually at six episodes over the course of about three weeks or so with two episodes coming out every week and each of them has about thirty minutes long and at the end of these six episodes quite often will spend another thirty minutes doing an in depth interview with someone perhaps someone who wrote the book on this particular business war or maybe someone who knows a lot about the industry that kind of thing. That's what business was is all about. How did you come to host one of the most popular business. Podcasts wasn't an idea that hernan lopez the founder of came with or was it. Something you suggested it was it was actually not neither a. We didn't know each other he used to work for. You probably heard of the fox networks. I think there's a famous australian behind some of that famous. Yeah well he used to work for the international arm of that and he saw what was happening with podcasts. Several years ago and so he'd come up with this idea. Well i used to be the host of a program on public radio here in the states. it's called marketplace. Still on the air and it's a national public radio style program and it's heard across the country and i was based in l. a. And while there. I made a lot of great friends and rub shoulders with a lot of really terrific producers and one of those producers ended up at wondering in la. And i had since moved from los angeles to austin texas which is why more met now. And one day. I get this call. And it's from one of the former producers at marketplace and she says. Hey i'm working over wondering what's wondering whether it's a script podcast platform and my boss. I told him about you because he has this idea for business wars.

This was a time before the lead performer at the Super Bowl halftime show is deemed international news before Tom Brady and Pat, Mahomes and Odell Beckham were household names. Back to a brief span in the early to mid nineteen eighties. When an upstart spring league, the USFL came along and tried to spike football on the NFL's own turf. It started a high stakes competition that involved stealing players taking over market and desperately trying to change the face and feel of America's most popular sport. This is episode one birth of league. Now here in twenty nineteen it's hard to imagine a rival entity causing the NFL, much stress. As of this moment to new football leagues, the XFL and the alliance of American football are planning launches within the next year.
