This new mexico is just not a very good program. They've struggled for years and years in the mountain west conference. I really don't see that changing They just have to rebuild culture before you get players to buy into the program.

"Then on the flip side tonight was pretty embarrassing by defensive coordinator who i think is really good in wink. Martindale time and time again. If you're the peyton manning eli manning broadcasts and we'll get into that in a second you might wanna mix up some stuff. It's like this is what we do. Well if you if you go to to play. Call is zero coverage. Meaning you're in man coverage and your blitzing. Everybody i get doing that every once in a while or in big spots. But if you've done it in seven big spots in a game like tonight there's just kinda bat shit crazy you've done it on every big spot they know it's coming in peyton and eli check to the play the gonna work against this coverage and he did it over and over and over again. Part of playing chess is mixing up your moves if you know every single time what i'm gonna do in football as a play caller offensively or defensively. It's a big disadvantage. You should have a couple curve balls in there. And i thought tonight for a guy who has a long resume of doing being an excellent defensive coordinator wink martindale tonight was not good. Tonight was borderline pretty embarrassing. Actually especially down the stretch of that last drive and then in overtime you can't run the same play call over and over and there were a couple of shots of john harbaugh talking to him kind of being like. What are we doing bro. Come on man. let's. Let's mix it up here. And i think you saw tonight and i love lamar jackson from an entertainment standpoint. He is a very fun player to watch run around. Who is not entertained by that. At point you watch him and you go. This is like a dude in high school. This is going you know. If you live in a small town. I grew up in davis california smaller town. So if a dude either or team that we played like in sacramento or the vacaville area. It's kind of like between the bay area and sacramento was going division one. We all talked about them right. This guy's going to usc this guy's going to oregon and usually that guy when you got on the field with them whether you played against them or whether it was when you were younger news watson from the stance. He was the best player by a mile. And that's how lamar looks running around in the nfl. It's insane it's like that's what a dude that's like going to alabama or lsu or texas. Looks like they're high school film. No one can touch him. Here's the problem. He's reckless with his body. And he's in the middle right now of negotiating a contract because he's known agent which is smart. I wouldn't wanna pay agent. You know a couple percent when really. They're not doing anything.

He doesn't know what whatever whatever makes him happy. It's great. I'm glad to get some time and done some things. Yeah, so back to Apple. What we were talking about before the break. Um yeah. Epic games, which is fortnite, which a lot of people know as that really popular game from last year's. They got in They got into, uh, into little at odds with Apple, because a lot of their revenue comes from pretty much all that revenue comes from in app purchases and in game they're called V bucks, which is how you you got to purchase that with real money, and then you can purchase things in fortnite like suits and all this other stuff. With V bucks. And I guess Apple was taking a big chunk out of it. They take about 15 to 30% of in app purchases, and that's I mean, they made $64 billion off that last year alone. So it's a big thing for Apple, and now they can't They can't force people to Stay with the in app purchases like Fortnite can have a link in their app on the phone and you'll go to like their website or something. So they get more than money themselves and applicant. Take the big chunk out of it. So his big loss for Apple. They actually won nine out of 10 counts, but they were found guilty in the to engage in anti competitive conduct under the California law. So that's the one that they had, and that's why they have to. Loosen up the rules on the in app purchases, and the results of that Apple is down like 3% on Friday. Yep. Figures. I buy apple and then look what happens. Yeah, it's not playing Fortnite. She loves the game and then a firm. We talked about a firm last week and that some people would affirm is, though, what? We talked about it last week, so that's what they were going to partner with Amazon, So it's kind of like a payment system. So, yeah, anything over $50 in the item, you can actually make it an installment. So it's like a layaway, but you get the item right away. Or you just Pay at a later date. Yeah, in full. You can either do installments or in full later so anyways, they were up 34% On Friday. They reported revenue. 261.8 million in the fourth quarter. Blue estimations. Yeah, it was insane. So I guess it is becoming more popular. But I mean, you got, like, you know, like square and PayPal also got into that They bought a square bought after pay for 29 billion and then you got PayPal. He brought up 80. For 2.7 billion, But did we ever find out what would happen if somebody didn't pair No. They check your credit and all of that. I don't know if you have to, like, if that's how they like. How do companies you know? Like Amazon? If they continue If they get hurt, you know, like, Oh, I'm going to make my first payment, get my goods and then not have to worry about him. Then the done that can't buy anything more. I know, but I wonder if there's a limit. I mean, Like for one, like a limit because of what minimum is $50, and then so for an item, and then how high that item would go because you could lose a lot of money. If you had a lot of people not paying it, they probably make 100 quarter. Okay? A quarter. Okay, But you take all the people you know, using Amazon actuaries. They figure one or two or 3% of the people aren't going to pay in the end this type of credit thing, and they actually go through that. So they, you know they're going to try it. Yeah. So what do you do? You buy it, And then you had just like layaway. Yes, but you get the item first. Okay. Big deal. Okay, so I buy $1000 t. V and then I don't pay for it. Probably. Why don't you read it? That's what I'm saying. If you have to put like you're so if you have to put all that information that you probably do. There has to be something like that. That's what I was asking. Yes, you have to. You don't yell at me. Understand what? I'm shutting your credit card If you put your credit card on file and then your credit card, good stand. I mean, if you end up closing it or so right? There's always touch with you. But if you have a credit, but I don't know, just put on the credit card and then pay it off next month. Well, you should, especially if you have a cash back, but a lot of people live paycheck to paycheck. Okay, then that would then should they really be buying stuff They know they should not affirm is making money off of this because they are offering installment. So they're lending the money so people can buy this stuff right? And then it's at a lower rate than the credit card. Yes. It's like a layaway. It is like a layaway, but you get your layaway. It's the opposite view. Exactly. So you're making payments up to it like a goal like it's a good way to teach kids. You know, we'll save your money that data and then But now it's like, no you can get it and then pay it back later. So I mean, people do live paycheck to paycheck. I can just see that, like, I don't know. I'd be like well I mean, I should probably pay my rent instead of paying that TV and I can only choose one. But that's what part of America is not learning that you have to buy what you need first, not what you want. That's deep tissue with America. Exactly. And we're getting people get into trouble now. It's okay. If you're going to buy something say, all right, I'll pay this off six months as long as you don't keep buying something every month. Saying I'll pay this off. And next thing you know, nothing ever gets paid off. Well, I'm going to do it The next time I buy something on Amazon. I'm just gonna thought you meant you're going to do. I'm going to buy something. Everything. Why would you want to pay interest if you don't just want to see how it works, Okay? Tell us how it works. I will be buying golf clubs for Kyle. Oh, my God. Don't go there this time. No Anyway, it's ridiculous. There. Moving on. Who wants to go first. I'll go first. We're already talking about crypto. Okay, This is tips for the table. The table? Yeah. Okay. Whatever. So, Yeah, we were talking about L. Salvador just made a Cryptocurrency. I mean Bitcoin, its main currency in the Country and pretty much big Bitcoin is the main one. And what we're saying is now at 45,000, roughly And it's actually still up 22% since the beginning of the year, But at one point it was up like back in April was up like 110%. You got to 64,000 which was the high The second biggest one is a theory in which is trading around 33 to 3900 in the last couple weeks, Uh, but Cryptocurrency is, in its sense. It's a digital and virtual currency that uses cryptography. For security. This feature makes it difficult to counterfeit.

I guess is more of a role model to me than more like a traditional bottle sent. So i got really lucky to have all sorts of people who are just kind of supporting my passionate along the way or helping me find it and just kind of pushing me for it I also really fortunate to go to space camp in huntsville alabama. Whether it was a similar situation again it was just all the counselors there and say the people in the program along with me We're all just really fine really engaging and it was just a really great kind of supportive environment for me In having those people that are kinda like golding your back and like you've got this. You can totally do this for me. was awesome. So that's why i started. Actually mentoring a robotics team in the bay area do something similar Basically hope. I can help kind of inspire the next generation of High school students. Basically you can do this. Engineering's totally for you. You are a hundred sent like this program. One hundred percent is going to help you with the future and totally something you can pursue Kind of giving back. I guess a little bit But yeah i've just been really lucky to have support kinda everywhere. It was the different programs. I've joined you know. I think what does really have a lot to do with what you're saying. So but i what. I love about your your narrative. Here is a little bit different. From emily's emily's was talking about finding a finding a female role model. Which i think is one which i think is a fantastic way to to be inspired by an and pursue something that you love. But i think what's important about. Your story is that it's not the only way right so you don't necessarily. It's not like okay in order to do this. That's that's the path that i gotta take. There's a lot of different paths. One of those is finding a culture that works for you and it sounds like being surrounded by all these very smart. People from very diverse backgrounds was inspiring in and of itself. Not so much that you had a mentor. That was guiding. You were ushering you through some sort of path but entering into this exciting world. I can only imagine if you're if you're in first robotics thing where you have these people from all over with all these different kinds of backgrounds all trying to do the same thing that could be inspiring just in and of itself. Feel like wow. I'm a part of this. Yeah at one. Hundred percent is and Over the years to i has gotten kind of bigger and bigger to where it's a very much an international program and ironically there's a team based out of johnson Team eighteen months If you take a tour of the facility you can actually see the corner where they work But yeah it's a very big program because you need all sorts of people who are all doing something similar and it's just that out kind of electrifying culture that kind of really like you just really want to go for it. Really you feel like you belong. You know you can look totally different or have grown up in a very different environment from someone. Let's say From a team in alabama for me it was a very different environment that california But still you have this great base. You've all love engineering all of robotics and you just have this really great kind of collaborative sense and that's great community. Kind of just inspires you to keep going forward. See that so important. But but emily i love your your story about looking out and seeking and finding different role models..

You know i think we need to appoint somehow a bureau of wise elders or something nonpartisan like ten people who are proved to be they they can get beyond politics and just deal with what is and try to understand things kind of like we do around here and talk about the state of policing in america for instance and what role that truly plays in the the huge shocking rise in crime. You know. I hadn't heard until somebody sent us an email about how police departments around the country have changed from. What should we do to. What is the minimum. We must do because it's important we stay out of trouble and then he got this piece in the new york times. I credit them. I've just read the first part jack. You referenced in earlier they start neck in asheville north carolina with this gal who was a cop She happens to be Game but Friends and relatives stopped speaking to her cop. After the george floyd thing wow demonstrator lobbing explosive charge center pants on fire scorched.

What right the big pride brand new york. They wouldn't let the cops march with them this year. Which was just awful. Yeah and so. You're seeing enormous numbers of officers. Quit and retire early. Enrollment police academies is way way down. we just don't seem it doesn't seem possible for societies to react to things in the right measure. We always we either. Do nothing or overreact. there were a couple more comments. I want to get on real quick. I just want to inject. It's okay to use the word picnic if you had stopped using the word picnic. Because he'd heard it's racist it's not we'll have that for you in just a moment Motor but my marco rubio said something yesterday. I think it was him. How come more people don't say and it's a good question. How come when you hear about shootings in chicago or wherever the heck over the weekend. You know another fifty. Four people shot nate. How come they're more statistics. Where the hell did they get their guns. Where does the seventeen year. Old gang banger. Word that gun. Come from how come we don't know how. Why can't i like quickly. Reference some studies. That show were those guns. Come from and you can't question number one doesn't it. Where the hell they getting. All these gunned the other day lori. Lightfoot said something to the effect of to indiana you can get a military grade weapons and but the the vast vast majority of the shootings are unregistered gums. One of the reasons you don't see those stats in. They're not so easy to grab because it would ruin the whole you know. Get rid of guns narrative if you realize okay this is all illegal so any of the gun laws. You're talking about wouldn't have any effect on that. That's one of the reasons you know. Talk about it. But i would think there'd be enough interest from conservative outlets or whatever that i would have heard that moore throughout my life What percentage of guns are stolen. What percentage guns are well. I don't know where do they come from. Yeah yeah that's an interesting question and we all know the answer. Let's play just a couple more reactions to biden's kind of tepid whole hummy speech and we're not talking about this because of the speech we're talking about it because of the issue. Crime is an enormous issue in this country. Getting worse clip. Thirty eight please. This joe gamal the of the fraternal order of police. I certainly hope that part of his comments. He's gonna call out road prosecutors and activist judges because everybody wants to talk about new gun laws while the fact of the matter is will not even enforcing the gun laws. We have now. Here's trey goudy and clip number. Forty what i found stunning was here. Joe biden say that one gun prosecutions actually were way down under president. Obama with what joe biden vice-president. So yeah keeping gone out of the hands of people who criminally inclined is great idea which is why we already have laws to control who can have weapons. What kind of weapons you can have and where you can have them with those laws. Do no good if they're not enforced and prosecutions where down under the obama biden administration and finally special report with bret baier. I'll give you the final word clip forty one when you vilify police to such an extent. Police feel like you're in a darned if you do darned if you don't environment and i know most police officers including myself. We got up to save lives not have our hands tied and watch people become victimized. You're out there. Fortunately can't do their jobs like that. You don't want to do their jobs like they used to do them. And that's a this situation so you grad- you want to get guns off the street. How you doing it law enforcement prosecutors district attorney's legislators and most importantly the communities we serve. We need to work together to get these guns off the street and that starts with funding the police portland shut down their anti gun anti crime unit because they didn't like him they're sending cops in the neighborhood. She can't have cops neighborhoods. So i hope you haven't used the term picnic recently. I believe i have as a matter of fact help you had started calling it an outdoor table event on a cloth or something different word. So somebody tweeted out where now you can't do parody anymore. Because the reality sounds like parody brandeis university out with violent language languages oppressive and possible alternatives an explanation for why you should do it including a couple that have been debunked and you know like of thumb. I had heard my whole life. That the The whole rule of thumb was an old expression that came from british law allowing men to beat their wives of sticks no wider than their thumb and they include a clip of joe biden mentioning this once. I'd heard that before in my life in doesn't make me a bad person that i heard it and believed it but it's not true So the rule of thumb should still be okay. According to brandeis university though you should say general rule and not rule of thumb because somebody might know the false etymology of the word and then what will beat somebody with a stick bigger than the thumb. I mean what does it lead to. So it's important that we pander to the ignorant and irrational apparently had been floating around that the term picnic is associated with lynchings of black people. White people gathering as spectators to eat during lynchings and picnics could be triggering for people so but that is not true either but these other ones are just dumb. You're no longer according to brandeis university. They put this out. Do not use the term start. Say great job or awesome. Because if someone is doing well. We don't need to equate that to murder because the rest of us do sure. We think that. I can't tell if like i'm getting hooked here by something that's a joke or if it's real how do you know the difference in the modern world know the difference in the modern world. That's when you know you're in crazy town. You can't tell if this and if somebody says later that was fake. I'll say okay. Well i can send you from a different university. That's just as stupid but real. So you know the thing. I'm looking at it. Triple double brandeis dot. Edu you're not supposed to say take a shot at or take a stab at. You should say give it a goer. Try these expressions needlessly use of hurting someone or something. You can't tell me there are people that think saying. Let me take a stab at that is going to lead to any stabbing. Did you hear what jack said. Jack was talking about stabbing someone all. I can picture stabbing over and over again in my ad or just inadvertently took my pin and jabbed it into someone's neck. Well all the talk a stabbing just got hold of me. I don't. I'm sorry. I just you leading stop. Eventually jim stop. Whining just used one of the terms. You're not supposed to use it. Brandeis university trigger warning. Which i thought was something was good content note or a drop in what. How does that was a content note. Jim thome asked how how white people keep their hair clean. Nobody would know what you were talking about. The word trigger has connections to guns for many people can give the same heads up using language less connected to violence. You people are freaking crazy and finally go up there. You're off the reservation near. Jim disagree with the group or defect from the group is a better term to use because this phrase has harmful history rooted in the violent removal of indigenous people from their lands on. You know that one at least has a shred of sense. Yeah i can see how that doesn't need to be calm. Be continue to be a thing. Yeah yeah the. The whole hey. Let's take a shot at Solve in the budgetary problems for the science department. I just keep thinking of murder what you say that. No that makes you a crazy person. You need mental health care so that thing. We just did that little thing. There was that real or parody. The fact that i have no idea is fascinating. Oh yeah we're in crazy ville man. I got a friend who retired early from his university job. Because of things exactly like that. So was this from the onion. Or babylon be or actually brandeis university. I know hard to say. It's possible to say i'm going to air to the side of believing is legit. I'm glad i never heard the whole picnic thing. Yeah i got a text from a good friend of the armstrong and getty show back in the eighties and college he He was told the same thing. Oh yeah the picnic day. At the university of california davis. Yeah it did. You shouldn't use the term picnic racist. Urban legend got a rural.

Which is the one that way. I can definitely has that. Yeah, well, they all have.

Gw 'em he says fast paced optimistic content every week. Always a good way to start the week long time listener of cool sheets and excited to see the show continue. Anger grow as ten best us. So that's cool Along timeless. I love it. Yeah that's true you know. we're pretty optimistic. I would say yeah. That's kind of definitely to become a cushy. You have to be something pretty cool. So that usually lends itself to more optimistic things. But i think we both kind of liked to focus on the good things that are out there because there's so many negative ones that we don't need to spend time everybody knows about those all right.

But he quickly realized she was no ordinary inmate. She was clean always neat. She wore a jacket and smelled good. And just the fact that she was talking to a male guards and was in this she definitely was a kind of a privileged prisoner and some people did have that even though they were in this horrible situation. Same thing mr Wiz neha was also. He was a singer so he could sing any entertained and that gave him some special privileges as well and zippy was a graphic design artist for the camp and it was really interesting. She were first. She worked doing very grunt labor and a chimney fell on her. She got hurt. She could talk away. She knew some german so she talked about her skills. And when i love is she also put hidden messages in some of the graphics and ended up helping a lot of the resistance movements The story then goes into this. Love story which is amazing. And i kinda don't want to give it away. But i'm also out of time so definitely read or listen to lovers and shoots reunited seventy two years later church. Yes i am so intrigued now and also it is it. Sounds like it's a happy ending in some sense that they both survived. And then apparently they got to see each other again. So yeah and a fell the became lovers and they fell in love. And they made this pact to meet in a certain place in when they both got out if they both got out and obviously seventy two years later didn't quite work out the way that they planned so when they do reunite and the story that evolves with that is so beautiful.

It's a movement it's an organization and it is worldwide and it is called leader of light. So it's a global grassroots movement committed to providing affordable sustainable solar light to people who have limited or no access to electricity so this is of course a worldwide problem and first world countries of course but in many countries access to clean water and access to electricity and many other things and so this organization is specifically looking at late to be able to provide that to people they work with a lot of partnerships around the world. They are based out of the philippines and japan's of their east asia. Or i guess part of asia and they have done so much work that is just amazing so they have at this point installed three hundred and fifty thousand bottle lights in more than fifteen countries and the way that they do is by reusing plastic bottles and then using very simple different components that you can learn to put together and then they teach people how to do it and then that gives them the power no pun intended but to be able to create this for themselves and they also want there to be more people to help make this happen and so there's some really cool ways that anyone anywhere can learn hands on how to create an install these bottle lights and so they invite anyone to contact them and you can also do things like invite friends or do some kind of team building activity to do that and then contribute to this global movement leader of light show. That sounds really really cool. I have never heard of it yet. No it's a little project. It's amazing and they did this. They travelled around the world on a ship with another organization called peace boat. I think it's called the and they. It was a from eighteen twenty nineteen. They were just going on this mission worldwide to do this so they've got mostly i would say their main. I guess headquarters are in philippines japan. You ask and columbia but they are worldwide. So it's really awesome. Awesome very cool. I like it. Thank you for sharing that. My and next clue. She is a two for. This is going to be hard to get in two minutes on a why try do this. But it's a website and their websites once called sounds of the forest and the other one's called tree fm but they are connected so sounds of the forest. they're collecting the sounds of woodlands and forest from all over the world. Creating a growing sound map bringing together orel towns and textures of the world's woodland's this is open source library to be used by anyone to listen to and to create from. So you can even go into your own forest in your neighborhood and record a soundscape of that and then send it into the website which is so called when you go to the website. You just see all these little wave forms and a map a world map so there's tons of already going on and you can click on any one of them and it tells you where it's located so this one i just did was davis california in the united states and it was a record by tiffany. She says this is a well known public place and the only time where there was at least amount of people woods at night. She did it at night when she recorded this. And then you can play the sound which is really cool. Of course i love forest and nature and things like that. I know you do as well. Karen so i know you'll love this website. Anybody that likes the sounds of that forest. If you can't get out there maybe this is the next best thing and tree. Fm is again as a collaboration with them and their websites really simple. It's basically you just click a button and it says listen to a random forest so just picks one forty you out of that list of from sounds of the forest website but it's their own website. It's this beautiful picture of a forest comes up in these sounds and then it says you know where it's coming from this in in france as the one that just popped up and then you can just go to the next forest in a new one comes up and you can listen to that. Sound i as you want. It's so cool. I love both of these websites. Sound of the forest and tree dot fm. Oh you are so right. I love this so so much and it does it ties in with some former.
How to Create Organizational Culture Change Using Social Media
"Ladies and gentlemen here. She is sally poge. Who's the director of social media for the university of california. Davis coincidentally located in davis. California sally welcome to social pros. My absolute pleasure to be here with you. The university of california system is very very large. A little bit about davis and what kind of campus it is. What kind of school. What you specialize in give folks who aren't familiar with uc davis maybe west coasters. Gimme little a frame up on the institution absolutely well. I think the first thing that we want to focus on his where we are. We're in northern california so East of san francisco in our sister campus uc berkeley and actually uc. Davis is. I would say we're one of the last college towns in california so we're in a small town called davis and we really specialize in research around climate change. We have a hospital and the number one vet. Med hospital in the world actually is located at uc davis agriculture. How we feed our world how we care for our world and climate change are kind of our bailiwicks at uc davis so We have a very big very active student community. We have about forty. Five thousand undergrad students on campus. And then another twenty to thirty staff faculty and grad students So we serve a really large community. We're pretty we're known for being kind of a little. I would say little wonky we're close to sacramento the capital We're northern california's there were outspoken about our values Which leads to a lot of protests social justice discussions It's a very lively community or my best friend's daughters the recent graduate of davis and also the school One of his best known programs commercially is. Is your wine education program. Many many of the best known winemakers not only in the united states but actually in the world have gone through the davis wine program. Some day in my retirement years. I may just have to matriculate there davis and go through that program would allow welcome you with open arms jay and i know how could i not talk about our wine and beer and t. programs Big deep. that's cool off every beverage. Beer wisely tequila program. I might come now. You're in charge pizza. That's funny because i was thinking like i love cnc. But i'm really like maybe i should start doing some google searches. I love line a little beer to. Yes we me. Scholarship that we could Art for and get after the after the program. Tell you a little bit about your team. We've had on the program this year. Who runs social media for duke university. fro- Mit we've had a couple of other higher ed. Social media genius is on social pros over the last year or two as well and it's always fascinating especially because our team can giver. Does fare better work in higher. Ed how different. The team structures are and even the reporting structures for social media inside different institutions. So talk a little bit about kind of how your team gets. Things done there at davis yet jay. Thank you for that question because I came into higher. Ed from outside i used to be in the agency. World is too. And i was so struck by how much structure plays a role in what you success that you can have with social media and As i've been I've only been hired for about five years now and this does have a either make or break. A team is what i really learned. So at uc davis. I'm lucky enough to have a really supportive director of communications. She oversees the whole office and she reports directly to the chancellor and she has a very big vision and really understood in a really valued. What social media brought to the table. But when i came in into the structure Social media is reporting under news Which i think is i think said social media kind of like a newer Been around for ten plus years and everybody was kind of arguing about organizationally where it fell under right like. Oh it's a marketing thing. Oh it's a web thing. No now it's a new thing and what i was able to do it Alongside the support of my director was really carve out a space for social media to stand alone so we are our own unit underneath the department of strategic communications meaning. We operator own budget. We have our own team members. We set our own strategy in coordination with all of our other colleagues news web marketing and visual end that gave us a really great in a pure peer to peer. Kind of seat at the table Which has been really empowering for our team because we actually service all of those communications verticals. We don't we're not like we don't belong to. We don't belong to news. We belong to everybody and what that was Allowed us to do is our mission. Our mission is really about building community. And how we can be helpful. Those are value statements and so So yeah. I think that that has been really helpful and Undermine team where team of five total and we overseas the uc davis flagship channels. So schmunity annals in all the strategy and then we also set a lot of policy for the rest of the university about hundred fifty social media communicators across the campus That we know of is probably more than that out there. and then. I also oversee executive social media communications for chancellor may and undergrad admissions social media as well so we have a large
Can trees talk
"Alexia Constantino and Katie McMahon both work at the smart lab at the University of British Columbia in Canada the smart lab is a diverse group of students who study how trees and soil are connected to the ecosystem Alexia studies how forest harvesting affects wildlife and Katie studies the way. The Food Forest Web recovers after mining, Alexia, Constantino and Katie McMahon. Thank you for joining us today. Thank you for having us. Yes thanks very much for having gone. I'm really looking forward to the show. Yeah me too, and so kids. If you have questions we would love for you to call now, or you can send an email to questions at, but why kids dot. Org let's dive right into the questions and we're GONNA. Start with some basics here and then I really WanNa. Get into later on a little bit more about tree communication, which is one of the things that this lab specializes in, but let's start with this question from Lucy. I'm from? Connecticut in I. WanNa Know House cleese quo. We had another question from a four year old in Bristol. Who wanted to know the same thing so Kadian Alexia? Which one of you wants to tackle, just the basics of how trees grow. Katie year I can take that first one so just like humans trees need food and water to grow but they get this there this food and water in quite a different way than we do. So trees and plants are really incredible in that they can actually get their food from the sunlight. So this process is called photosynthesis, and it's really amazing. The trees can take energy from the sunlight and just using water and carbon dioxide, rich, a molecule floating around in the air. They can create energy. On so far this energy that forms of sugars which contain. Carbon. and so that's how they get their main energy for Brawley, but then the water of course comes from the soil. So, they can take the water from the soil, using their roots, and they also get other nutrients and vitamins from the soil as well. We'll. Let's go a little bit deeper into that with a couple of other questions. We have because you were just talking Katie. About some of the The things that a treat needs like water, and it also needs oxygen and sunlight, so here's a question from Sienna I'm eleven use old. Alvin Davis, California and my question is do trees breathe, and if they do where they breathe from all right, and before you get to that, here are two more questions, hello, my name is Luna and I am seven years old. I live in Oregon. My question is how do you choose? Give us oxygen. Hi, my name Rayvey I'm seven years old. I'm from London, and my question is how you treat bay coke should. We also got a question from ranch lives in the United Kingdom with the same question, so talk talk to us a little bit more about oxygen and the role of oxygen for trees in how they breathe, and in how we breathe. Share so you can almost think of trees as breathing backwards from us so when we take a breath in We're? We're breathing in air and we're really were taking oxygen out of it. That's what we need to breathe. And then when we x hell outcomes, the carbon dioxide, and so trees actually kind of do this in reverse So you mentioned earlier that when they do photosynthesis, they're taking the carbon dioxide out of the air and using. Their sugars energy. but then. Whence that sugars in the tree gets used up. Then that when it uses up that carbon, it actually produces oxygen, and that is released back out into the air. For us to breathe as humans And spent I think one of the question mentioned Where does that happen in so the the The air actually goes into the trees through. little pores in the leaves. Are the needles called still matter and so that's where the air comes in when they're when the leads, the needles are doing photosynthesis. Do we call it breathing I? Mean would you say that trees breathe? You know that's an interesting question People feel strongly about whether you can apply thirty human centered words to trees. I'm sure we'll get to this later today when we're talking about these communicating whether trees could talk, or only humans can talk, and so I put this in the same category The air is going in and out of trees in there using. Using carbon from it and putting oxygen back into, it so whether you want to call that breathing. Is the the scientific words, photosynthesis and respiration I. Guess Out for debate.
Yosemite Welcomes Back Visitors After Coronavirus Closure
"Joe Seventy National Park has been closed for nearly three months because of stay at home orders but today the park is reopening in a limited way Cap Radios Ezra. David Romero reports that the closure has had a huge effect on nearby businesses. On the way into Yosemite National Park from Fresno sits the Yosemite Sugar Pine Mountain Railroad, which shut down with the rest of California in March Scott. mcghee runs the operation. We lost every single tour group and school group that we had coming up here. Yosemite is opening with a lot of restrictions. Only about half of the average June visitors are allowed in, and they must make online reservation for each car in advance, Jamie Richards Yosemite spokesperson. We're going to be monitoring condition daily. We're GONNA make adjustments as needed and we're going to work to maintain safe conditions for visitors. Only two campgrounds are open in the larger one. One is operating at just fifty percent of capacity. Other campsites are closed due to staffing Richard says she's interested in seeing how the animals in the park respond again the people we've seen a lot of bears out in active we will see when the park reopens. How the animals continue to reopen adapt to visitors coming back last year, visitors spent more than one point seven billion dollars in the four California counties that surround the Park Brooke. Smith with visit Yosemite Madera. County says that could drop by as much as half this year between fires in government shutdowns. This is definitely the longest we've ever gone with you Ashleigh. Up when she first heard, the park was opening Amy George and her husband Kyle Mon- Holland from Davis. California rushed to book a few day passes. I was drinking coffee I'm like I'm just GonNa. See and says I go. July twenty second has day passes Great. That's our twentieth anniversary. The pair of teachers spent their honeymoon in Yosemite. George has visited the park since childhood and the reservation system has long term effects. Maybe this'll lessen the impact that humans have had on the environment on Yosemite. George hopes unlimited spaces. Don't discourage people from trying to make it to the park. She wants everyone to enjoy Yosemite like she always has for NPR. News I'm as David Romero in
