"Yeah. Also, when you brought up the story, you said that your first reading of it, you were drawn to it because of the kind of Cinderella quality of this girl going to the ball and then having her dreams dashed because prince charming does not show up to this ball. But what's interesting to me is that even the prince charming in the story, while he was just a married guy who was playing around with a 15 year old girl, no intention of ever coming back, he told her he couldn't love her because he had a wife. That is exactly right. I almost think it becomes a sort of joke between the author and the reader. And not exactly at Mary's expense, but we can see what she can't. First of all, he's not honorable. He is married. As you say, no intention of coming back. But the other component of that dynamic is that he's got her washing his shirts and acting nursemaid and attending to his sunburn and she's all ready, gleefully engaged in the drudgery of what a wife would be doing for this man. But sees it as part of this avenue for escape that she might have. But I think that that is a kind of tender joke there. Yeah. Why do you think he sends the drawing? You know, I don't know why he sends her the drawing except that it probably pleases him to think of her pining a little bit. And maybe he's proud of his artistic accomplishments, but one interesting thing about the drawing is that when Edna Bryan revised the story and changed the title of it to put into her collection, she changed the drawing from looking like Mary, but prettier to looking like Mary, but uglier. It's an interesting change. I don't know exactly what it means except that the dream of the seduction withers that much sooner. Upon the moment of the drawings arrival, Mary may be conceived better that this person didn't actually see her for who she was. Or didn't see her for whatever she values about her own beauty. Yeah. Interestingly, O'Toole does see her beauty. No tool the most crass of all people who can't be bothered to remember her name. You know, other people might think her hair was ski lish. I think that's the worst. Which I think means sort of slovenly and messy. But he sees the beauty in it. He likes these simple girls. Right, and they're both tall and thin. Yeah. And I think he doesn't know better than to try to pursue her by persistence. He won't have been the first man in the history of the world to adopt this tactic. Yeah. I mean, he's sort of put out that no one wants to have a cuddle with him. You know, he feels it's owed to him. On the other hand, until he gets really drunk and opens all the taps. He doesn't seem malicious to me. He just seems confused as to why there's no response to his advances. What, I don't think that having desire for somebody and using persistence to try to pursue them is necessarily malicious. It might just be a misunderstanding of what they want versus what you want. Of course, the effects of it can be very harmful to people, but that doesn't mean that his intention is to hurt Mary..

"This month we're going to hear come into the drawing room Doris by Edna O'Brien, which was published in The New Yorker in October of 1962. Although she was 17, this was her first party, the invitation had come only that morning from misses Rogers of the commercial hotel. The postman brought word that misses Rogers wanted her down that evening without fail. The story was chosen by Rachel Kushner, who's the author of three novels, and most recently the essay collection, the hard crowd, which was published last year. Hi, Rachel. Hi Debra. Welcome. Thank you. You were very keen to read a story by a no, Brian on the podcast, why is that? Well, I started looking back at our history with the magazine and Edna O'Brien has published 39 stories in The New Yorker if the index I found online that is not officially sanctioned by The New Yorker is correct. And that is just it's a lot of stories and there's a lot of range there and I had first come to them through her collected works, the love object, which was published in 2013. And I thought, oh, I'll introduce myself. Not having read all of miss O'Brien's stories previously, I'll introduce myself to them with a collection. And then I started reading from The New Yorker archive, and I realized that she had made some really interesting changes between publishing them in The New Yorker and republishing them and her collection. And something about that made the whole undertaking of a study of her work really appealing, just the seriousness of the project and thinking about how writers make decisions over time and how their relationship to their own work and even sentence by sentence might change. For instance, this story, it's the first story that opens the collection, and it's her first story that was in The New Yorker. Was called in the collection, not coming to the drawing room, Doris, but Irish revel. As you said, this was the first story that Ed no Brian published in the magazine. She was, I think, 31 at the time, and it was not long. It was two years after her first novel had come out. Do you think it has all the hallmarks of the writer she became? Yes, very much so. I would say, I mean, one of the things I really like about Edna Bryant's sensibility is her ability to recapture innocence without sentimentalizing what happens to people once the scales fall from their eyes. She goes through those paces somehow treating her character with utmost precision and sympathy for what it means to have a dream. And then to have that dream be shattered. And I think that those are the hallmarks of a writer who's really in control of her craft. I noticed.

"The thing that volcanoes good for is to entertain you as they destroy vast landscapes on earth. Aside from that what are the good for. Oh let me count the ways. Now i do want to say. I don't like it when the volcanoes take people and buildings out while i was amused to see. Fisher's opening up people's backyards. It was amused in a. I really hope they have good insurance kind of way. So i'm a fan of like the power of our planet's geology of humanity. Oh just be clear. You're not a super villain you're merely fan of the marvels of nature. Okay exactly so so. Volcanoes iceland is really the place to look to find some of the coolest examples of what they can do. first of all they just add land. The nation of iceland is straddling the mid atlantic rift. It is getting torn in half. It is also on top of hotspot and over the millennia as the island nation gets torn in half. You don't actually see a gap forming because all the volkan ism. There is just filling it in now. The other side of this is there are islands all around the world at hawaiian islands or one of the most noticeable where you have a chain of islands that on one end is all dead volcanoes. That are well weathered over time and a great place to go live and then you have as you move down the chain you have younger younger islands that are more and more mountainous more and more active and these islands which are still growing for the active ones have amazing land to farm and if you want a nation to grow well. This is a different way to do it right. I mean a lot of the volcanic islands like the hawaiians that you mentioned even just across the pacific. There's tons of these of these islands. They provide stopping off point for birds. That are migrating various creatures and as you said the land around a volcano is incredibly fertile. We've known this.

Wedding was granted the prison officials said in baton rouge only because grace now a camp clerk has a fine record in the prison and they ruled that the bride must leave the prison farm immediately after the ceremony probation records so no hanky panky just get married and get the hell out probation records your show. That grace entered angola in april of nineteen thirty seven under a life sentence as a fourth offender after a larceny conviction but his there was granted commutation last may to ten years..
Iceland is open for business
"Is for business for us residents but only as far as iceland. You can't can't use it as a as a transit point still. I think it's Steven i think you were the one that the tag the story i think it's Interesting premature but a little surprising. Yeah i think i was. I was talking with the guys about this in someone who said this is already. It's already open like their areas. Yeah yeah of bloggers that we know andy from any travel blog is already. They're taking pictures of the volcanic eruption. Yeah which i mean. It's fascinating because they've they've said it wasn't gonna happen till the twenty six. I believe of this this month. so i guess they're just like you know whatever I to me. It raises some interesting questions about one. What's it take to get in. I think posted. He just used his quarantine card which doesn't match up with like saint. Hard of sight says vaccine card Which doesn't match up with what the government website says. the website is basically the who yellowcard From dr That doesn't sound like that's the case And i wonder how quickly it can become inundated. It's really hard to get there right now from the united states. Yes no one's flying nonstop from the us An icelandair isn't starting up flights from most of their west coast or central us destinations until the summer. So everything's the europe. So i don't know how andy got there but I i would be fascinated. I'm gonna be now to yeah. I wonder how we get there. I mean but don't forget. The wizz air flight landed as that volcanoes. Erupting so know. There's definitely options. What's the other thing too. Now there's a volcano and it's causing headaches for flights departing in writing and it looked. I mean you know. I heard that there was an option. And i saw some of the pictures i wouldn't say it's like massive. Mount edna style. Just shepherd seems pretty sizable. I do wonder if we're going to have some of the issues that we had too many years ago with. Obviously that's a fairly big chunk of the airspace to get from the us europe. I guess guess so few flights right now. Maybe it's not as big an issue to reroute folks. I was. I was secretly hoping we're gonna try to pronounce that old volcano on the show. No no no no no no remember. This is a scripted show. Oh wait yeah. I mean i think you know right now. It seems like it's a pretty tame volcano and so i know there's been some ash cloud kind of re routes around that southern parts of iceland. Because it's really close to reykjavik is where the volcano and so i know there's been some rewrites but i haven't seen anything major stopping traffic going to europe. So which is which is good.
For the first time in decades, vaccines are having a moment
"Healthcare reporter at The Wall Street Journal. X for joining us, Peter Thanks for having me on Lot is being made right now about the vaccines were obviously going through the rollout. Things are ramping up. But, you know, I really have found very fascinating. The story of how these vaccines have come to be in the new technologies that were using. Obviously, the Fizer and Moderna vaccines are using this M or in a technology. We've never had a vaccine that has been approved before. And Johnson and Johnson, the new one that just got approved. They also are using new technology. There's is a little different. It's called viral vector technology. You know, these brand new things are showing a lot of promise and big hopes for Writing, you know, infections in the future, other pandemics, just other diseases. There's a lot of potential with all of these. So, Peter, tell us a little bit about your reporting on this. You know, Vaccines have been around for a couple 100 years, and for most of that time they used sort of tried and true method of making them and a lot of cases. That meant Taking part of the virus of the pathogen that you want to try to protect against. And using it in the vaccine itself to deliver that into the body to induce an immune response. And so those air still in use, But there have been efforts over the past few decades. Find new ways to make vaccines and the pandemic has really brought that out in the sense that, you know, even though some of these technologies were years in the making this pandemic has sort of been there moment to actually deliver, if not for the very first time, then In the biggest way possible for that. Vaccine technology and so As you mentioned the first couple vaccines used this messenger RNA technology and this Johnson and Johnson, one uses a viral vector technology and they're both Newer ways of making vaccines, and they both involved. Essentially delivering the genetic code and genetic instructions that tell the body to do certain things to induce the an immune response rather than deliver. The actual virus into the body that you're trying to fight against. We've talked about the M R D vaccines for a bit now only because they were approved first from Fizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, as I mentioned recently approved They're using this viral vector technology. Tell us a little bit more about that. It's different from the old ways as you were describing, but they still use a virus that they kind of readjust to help do this. So how does the viral vector stuff work? There. That's a good point, because I don't want to mislead people to think that there's no viral material in these viral vector event vaccines, But the difference is that you're using a virus that has Essentially nothing to do with the disease You're trying to combat and the general concept for these viral vector vaccines is to take one harmless virus and to use it against more deadly virus. And so in the case of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine A couple others. They're out there for cove is like the one from AstraZeneca and University of Oxford is to take something called it in a dental virus, which is Relatively harmless virus that can cause common colds or conjunctivitis. And to tweak it in such a way so that if it's injected into your body, it's not going to cause disease is not going to cause the coldest fellow certainly not going to cause coverted. It serves as sort of a carrier, and it's modified in a way so that it actually then carries Edna that tells the body's cells. Make this spike protein that found on the surface of the coronavirus finding that right virus of such an interesting part of this story, Johnson and Johnson decided they were going to go this route. Viral vector technology, and they had to be on the hunt or the right virus because there was also concerns. You know you're using viral material. What if you build up an immunity to that specific virus, then could you build up an immunity to the vaccine itself? So they were on the hunt for a very specific one to use as well. That question of whether this viral vector or this sort of carrier that makes up the vaccine is going toe compose an issue and so in the past there have been in is where that's been a problem. And I think it's not been entirely solved. And so in the past, the problem was that when they tried using one of these dental viruses to be the sort of carrier in the vaccine in people who had pre existing immunity to that identify Iris that this common cold virus it's sort of interfered with The effectiveness of the vaccine against various diseases. And so what Johnson and Johnson had to do was sort of figure out. Okay, Well, we need to pick the right carrier that the right dental virus and you know, ideally one that is just not that common out in the world so that not as many people have pre existing immunity to it. But even the people who do have preexisting immunity to it. Maybe it's not going to be such a strong immune response against the carrier that would interfere with the underlying vaccine is trying to do Tell me a little bit more about Johnson and Johnson and the company. You know how they got into this because my understanding I'm obviously we know Johnson and Johnson for a myriad of products, but they're fairly new to the vaccine game. And they didn't achieve a little bit of success with an Ebola vaccine using this viral vector technology also, so you know how did that work out for them? And then obviously they transition into working on the covert virus. He's got the world well known brands that you alluded to band aid baby powder, and they've long had a very strong prescription drug business. So drugs like Remedy Cade that that treat people who are already sick and then there are major player but they've not been a major player in vaccines. And so about 10 years ago, they decided they wanted to get into vaccines. More so they bought this Such a biotechnology company called Crew Cell, and that's really where this viral vector technology came from that JJ is using, and so they kind of spent. Several years just designing vaccines against various infectious diseases and then running them through the regular series of tests, So this would be things like Ebola. Enrica. Then they were able to start testing they rebel a vaccine using this sector technology in Africa after I think first after that, the really big outbreak in West Africa five or six years ago and then more recently In the Congo, where there was another outbreak, and so they went through the whole series of studies for that vaccine, and then eventually got European Commission approval for it in the middle of last year. So now they do have this sort of platform that Could work not only against over 19 but also against Ebola's and then potentially additional infectious diseases the night in fact, they even have the vaccine and development for HIV, which is sort of been this Notoriously difficult virus to target in the form of a vaccine. I mean, it's so interesting how far we've come. How much we've learned about the human body so much so that you know we're hacking the genetic software. You know of the body to produce these things. You know all these insights into the immune system that we've gained have led us to this stuff. So what's the promise for these things Like, you know, what can we expect? I know they're working on Vaccines for other diseases. Gene therapies, There's a lot of promise with us Yeah, And it's in a way. It's sort of the convergence of a couple different strains that have been going on in pharmaceutical research and academic research. And that is The genetic revolution on the one hand, but also immunology, and that's immunology is kind of feeding into both. Vaccines to prevent disease but also ah, whole new class of drugs to treat disease by in some way affecting the immune system. And so I mean, there are people that Infectious disease experts who say that this is really the golden Age of vaccine ology that these advances kind of signal that and think that it really shows that there's promised to really target a lot of Other infectious diseases. And in the case of Ah, big emerging outbreak like we've seen To do it in a way that is really quick and can actually Have in effect in actually stemming of pandemic. While it's under way, you know, rather than just developed paintings and the normal timeline of many years that the pharmaceutical industry is used to Yeah, And in the
Researchers recover 1-million-year-old mammoth DNA
"You would think after being extinct for thousands of years, mammoths would have no more surprises. Well, the world's oldest DNA's samples say otherwise, to mammoth molars pulled from the permafrost in north eastern Siberia contained didna dating back to more than a million years ago.

Tom Vander Vault also works with the center for Paleo Genetics. Imagine if you're Edna is fragment that into literally millions of tiny pieces. It is a painstaking puzzle.

Charting of the Human Genome, 20 Years Later
"We're talking about challenges for genetic research. 20 years after the first draft of the human genome was published with my guests, Dina Zelinsky, a bio infirm, a Titian with the Paris transplant group. And elite scientists for civil tech and crystal, soc and indigenous geneticist bioethicist with Vanderbilt University and the Native Bio Data Consortium Crystal I introduced you as a co founder of the Native Bio Data Consortium. Which gets to an issue we've talked about in different ways on this program in the past indigenous sovereignty over genetic data, please remind us how big an issue this is. Yeah. So when we talk about precision, medicine and health were always promising that the next advantages and innovations will be conferred to those individuals that contribute the genomic information. The pandemic has shown that preventive healthcare and structural barriers to access to health care probably highlighted more about health disparities than this UN pronounced supposed to future advantages of healthcare. Indigenous peoples have You know, willingly or unwillingly contributed their didna for the supposed betterment of humankind Need I remind everybody what happened after the completion of the Human Genome Project. We had the completion of large scale diversity projects such as the Human Genome Diversity Project and 1000 genomes project, which were denounced by over 600 plus indigenous nations worldwide that went to United Nations because they were concerned. About privatization and commercialization and exploitation of indigenous genomes and what has happened to those biomarkers collected from indigenous peoples from Central South America. Those bio markers are now freely and openly accessible to companies such as ancestry, Didna and 23 Me ancestry. Edna has hosted revenues over a billion dollars every holiday quarter since 2017 so we always have to ask yourselves. What exactly are the protections? Really? This data privacy and commercialization. The rate of technology outpaces our regulations, these new technologies and while we think that these protections are conferred by laws, which is the genetic Information nondiscrimination Act Last change. Companies are bought and sold. So we have to ask yourself what's the commercial value? The data that we're being asked to freely give away and how can we look to communities and empower communities to self directed decisions that are being made using their data? Dina, you contributed your data, and you gave it away freely. Do you not feel the same kind of threat here that exist? Not quite in the same way. No individuals of European ancestry make up the vast majority of genetic studies, and that's really problematic because they only make up 6% of the population. And I, I completely understand the threats to underrepresented populations. We should be sequencing these underrepresented populations, but we should be sequencing them with the idea of Making genomics research more equitable of giving back to these communities, not just taking from them. That being said, I can't even explain how useful data like that from the 1000 genomes project has been. I've used it in most of my projects. I have whole human genomes at the tip of my fingers. When I'm accessing this data, as well as other scientists, I think We generally have good intentions, so I currently use it in a study to better understand Parkinson's disease. That being said. I think in many cases, a lot of this data has restricted or limited access for researchers versus commercial entities. I agree here that we we really should limit what industry can or cannot do with with our data. Krystal. You mentioned preventive care and the pandemic. The human Genome Project. I remember promised to tell us everything about her genome. Doesn't this sort of tell people Hey, we know everything about you now and ignore the nurture part of the nature nurture debate. What I can tell you as a geneticist. My first skepticism and what I always tell tribal leaders is that genetic data is just the easiest type of data to collect. But genetic data does not. Predict as much about disease risk than we think. Other things such as access to care, cultural factors, colonial factors relating to help probably contribute more to the health differences and outcomes than actual genetics itself. Things like diet environment and lifestyle are things that we should be looking at. And definitely socioeconomic status by factors. But these are the hardest bits of data to collect. And so we really can't build truly robust models without looking at these other factors related to health. So looking at genetics and biological factors is sometimes a little bit of a cop out. You don't necessarily properly convey the limitations of genetics and biological research to the lay
Three New Jersey correctional officers charged after assault at a women's prison
"Jersey Attorney General Gerbier Gray Wall says three suspended corrections officers have been charged for their roles in an attack against female inmates at New Jersey's only women's prison. Gray Wall says more than two dozen officers at the Edna Mahan facility organized into groups and forcibly extracted inmates from their cells last month. These six women were beaten and injured. No one suffered a concussion after being hit 28 times. Another suffered an orbital fracture on her eye. We allege that they deployed pepper spray. Rushed into the inmates cell And beat several of the victims without justification. Grable says his officers were charged with official misconduct and tampering with public records. He expects to file additional charges against more officers soon. Governor Phil Murphy has also ordered an investigation

How Hiroshima survivors helped form radiation safety rules
"Now, we have contributing correspondent Dennis normal. He wrote this week on how seventy five years later. The survivors of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki have transformed understanding of the effects of radiation exposure on health. Hi, Dennis Arthur we're talking about study. Now. Run by Ari are asked, which is the Radiation Effects Research Foundation this is a very long-term study as I mentioned almost seventy five years. Years and included many many survivors over one hundred thousand. How exactly did this study get started all those years ago? Virginia's Harry Truman authorized launch of the study was in nineteen, forty, seven. They were pretty much should have a full team on the ground in Yoshii Nagasaki. By nineteen, forty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred fifty. The US Navy realized that there would be a bathroom studying the acute impact and. And the long term impact of what happens to humans when they are subjected to the detonation of Tom These survivors involvement in such a long-term study has yielded an amazing array of results, important results for health for anyone who's exposed to radiation and work or an accident. What are some of the key findings from this work us? Not just one study. They actually have a collection of different studies. Studies, they have carried out the most notable one. Is this enormous life span study where they have as you mentioned one hundred twenty thousand people who were enrolled at the outset? If you put together the combination of number of participants and the length of the study, there's probably nothing else like the RRF in his predecessor ABC city simply gathered data on how radiation has long term effects on health. Health of those who were exposed to radiation the Rif previously ABC gathered that data mix epidemiological connections between the amount of radiation. Someone gets and their risk of developing cancer later in life, other or decisions take that data and data from other studies as well, and they turn those into recommendations for the amount of exposure that people should be allowed to get if they are patient for medical imaging. Imaging, or if they are, the technicians were if their nuclear pact workers this gives away how old I am, but I went to the dentist pornography child. You sit in the dental chair and the dentist would real office machine thick x rays of your teeth, and those were go bouncing all over the room these days for dental x Ray. They put you in a special room which shielded technician. Technician is wearing a badge to track how much radiation he or she is exposed to. You're also wearing that vest to protect your organs from straight X rays all those recommendations shielding around the x ray rooms, dosimetry badges with technicians, where and the vest the patients where they all grew out of basic data that was produced by the long term studies by RRF INC with the survivors we talked. Talked about how this research got started very soon after the bombings, US government, Edna Japanese, government, and boasted research with survivors, but with different purposes. How are they different? Hauer their intentions with the studies different. The ABC was very much an American stony when the ABC's got started was so under America's occupation, and the Japanese scientists had difficulty publishing their observations amount of information that was released Japanese. was very much controlled by the occupation of Nargis, so there were real restrictions on what the Japanese scientists could do, but that initial collection of data by the US groups was over within a few months later there was a decision to set up a long-term study of the effects of radiation and at that point yet. Of the Japanese scientists in the American scientists were pretty much aligned. You mentioned in the story that the survivors weren't treated by the US scientist when they were involved in the study. Initially, that's right. Basically for political reasons, the decision was made that the ABC said he would not offer any treatment to the people who were being examined by the ABC physicians. They concern was that if the ABC city which at that time was very much? American funded American. If. They offered treatment. It might be taken as an admission of culpability in their condition, because misunderstandings and friction between the survivors, many of whom believe that they would get some help for doing with their illnesses with their injuries. Yeah, why would a survivor become involved in the study? If they weren't going to get treatment, even decades later if that was the history of the study. Initially. There was a hope that they would get some sort of medical benefit from participating in the study, the didn't get zero. In particular children that were born to survivors got medical checkups that there would not have received not been part of the study later as one of the survivors told me he has continued to cooperate with the study because he hopes that it will help the world recognize how devastating, the effects are of attack using atomic weapons, and so that is what motivates him to continue to cooperate. It's not clear whether there are. Are Health Effects for the offspring of survivors, but this survivors children are obviously concerned about their health. Can you talk about about this tension with the scientists say is that their studies so far have not identified any affects the question is. Are there no effects or are statistical data simply not detailed enough to spot affects the friction arises. Is that some of the children of the survivors? But we've that they are facing health issues that are not faced by big response were not subjected to the. It's on bond radiation, so the children what? As survivors as second-generation survivors, and they now have to court actions going forward, try to force the the government to recognize that the children of survivors should be recognized, says survivors as well, and that should also be entitled to medical support it just as their parents are

Standing there guy comes to national ball in my hand. You guys can run up to me. I didn't move but I'm always the one that gets payment bad guy in the whole situation. I just think it's unfair after all that. I'm only when I get kicked out. That's not fair. I don't care what nobody says. there's so many other people involved in doing so many things that weren't okay What I'm the one. That gets the tech jacket in everybody else's Congo supplied. All like I said I I take responsibility for the whole Marcel. To Heighten West. Goes hard every night? You GotTa Love. It's hard but stephen this point he's got a league-high thirteen tax. Are you concerned about him? Comply off times. I'm concerned about them. Here's a reality situation. I'm not concerned about him. From the standpoint of he is real and authentic as he is against West West but doesn't have a phoney bone in his body and he goes after it. But here's the problem Max Kellerman since Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City Russell. Westbrook hasn't been out of the first round. There's been out of first round. Not only that. He hasn't even shot forty percent from the field in the postseason the last three years. And when you look at Houston and what is expected of them right now. He's averaging twenty seven seven and seven. He's been an absolute monarch. He's been he's been sensational about it. But Max he's only shooting twenty four percent for three point range. When playoff Tom Arrives? They slow the game down. Defense is gift back. They don't give up anything to audit will give too much rather in the open court stonehouse some way. They're going to force you to take perimeter south now Russell. Westbrook is going to get his somehow some way but is it going to be through the high volume variety. That doesn't necessarily work. Come post-season Tom. You're going to have to elevate your level of efficiency. And if you don't do that plus your temperamental and it gets physical. He clearly is strong enough. Big enough he can be a bully when he wants to be. Because you got a lot of cats that scare him because he is Hiroshi but in the end that can work against you come playoff time particularly against some of the bigger names. He'll need to be careful.

"Website which we've been doing for going on twelve twelve years and have a couple of thousand reviews on there. We been busy little bees and out day. It's a Chardonnay seven ninety nine Chardonnay. Nathan the Edna Valley Seventy nine hundred trader. Joe's has called the Meringue Chardonnay Edna Valley Chardonnay 2018 Edna Valley. If you do not know is south of Pasa Robles in the central coast. Abby a law on the coast And it is a league cool area. It's really great for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Little Richer Chardonnay. As you know the. It's not that AH farther north than Los Angeles but it is coastal does get cool breezes so you get maybe a little. Richard may be riper but still will in the proper climate range You know some of the the really famous Pinot Noir Chardonnay growing areas is kind of cool all all the time and never really warm up and central coast a little bit different but you get a little richer and that's not a bad thing and this is a single. Aba Chard name Seven ninety nine Meringue I don't know who made it This is meringue wine company. which is you know when they contract wine? They kind of make a name for wine. Supposed to know really or you know because it comes and cheaper at the grave spike come from this vineyard this winery and a a lot of wineries have contract sections other winery. They would make wines for Their own lines will make wine for somebody else. You know. You can't really go from there because it's not the same as their own wines or make it for somebody else but you know you get their know-how and like I said this is a Chardonnay and from Edna Lavallee and it's pretty good for seven ninety nine and I was thinking when I was drinking at that five years ago. You wouldn't get a Chardonnay for sub ten dollars this complex. It's got Malak Dick on lease and it's got some sort of oak aging how. I don't know what it is. which way or there's barrel of the some other way to get oak in there but it's kind of a complex Chardonnay which is is kind of Nice Nets kind of California chardonnays about but it's got rounded flavors in a wide range of flavors neighbors? I got some cream to it. It's got Bonilla you know it's got His catt pineapple grapefruit and lemon and apple. And it's it's pretty good and let me take a SIP We go tastings at a liquor store. It was a big tasting. It would have maybe twenty stations with you know three four winds each station nation. And one thing I would hear all the time of somebody would say I don't like Chardonnay was like no you don't get it. Chardonnay isn't a one thing. Every single Shard name is different. There's all sorts of different things you do to it like a salvation. BONKER UP UNICREDITO. They they make those as simply as possible specially the lower price range and that's great because it's bright fruity or citrus You know they got great noses their their light it needs to drink and that does those grapes fine but Chardonnay even on the same price ranges those tends to be more complex Mala now lactic fermentation is something they do in red wine all the time in happens and chardonnet and that changes the actually put bacteria in into the juice and the changes Thing is The mallow acid to lactic tat fasten so you get a rounded rather tart so le more fruit than citrus More milk easiest and get kind of creamy sometimes and when they make when they don't have to do the whole thing and they they do these wise sometimes in lots other chardonnays and you know maybe twenty percent has Mola Malacca. Eighty percent has doesn't matter. They can donate percentage. They want then they do some some sort of oak aging. They can either do barrels new barrels or use barrels. Because you can use the a barrel empire oaken Vos too would it for maybe three or four fills with a shorter period of time. A lot of things you could get more use out of oak because some of these winds. Are you know the ten dollar Ranger in oak for four months or six months where he used to be an year year and a half. You know it's a shorter length of time us more but just the same. Same if you're using barrels is used as a you know a use barrel gives off less if you're putting staves in a let him toasted into a VAT debt gets flavor in there too which is fine. You're not really listen drinking now winds. It doesn't really matter how the gets there. You're not really paying for the Oak. So they get it in there and gives you the flavors you like. That's a good thing. They're really good at it now. And then there's on lease on leases worthy keep them dead he's from the fermentation maybe bits and pieces of ever left over from the grapes in the VAT as it ages and if you stir it starts to get creamy I mean you can like really stir the heck out of it or you're gonNA start a little but you get this cream Est.. To and plus it gives a nutty salty flavor to it it gives a structure and adds a little bit of little bit of a little bit umph to the wine. And but so there's different things you can do in different proportions and then another thing this You know is the grapes. Election didn't get to the grapes election in Los Angeles California label. This one's Edna values from a very small section of central coast but MUC- chard natives California. That might be some grapes from coastal well Monterey then some other grapes from valley and Lodi would just inland and then maybe some from a hillside in Mendocino each scrapes. Going to be different. But you know there still value priced wines and they put that together with all the different percentages of of Mel Lactic and Oak and everything. And there's infinite but at number of percentage of things you can do it still chardonnay. But there's everybody's got their own little recipe so when you go to wine tasting and don't say I don't like Chardonnay. 'cause everyone's different so you know it's kind of like yelp people there I can do here. So they're so Chardonnay even this little seventy-nine Chardonnay and since trader Joe's gets pays a front They they have aggressive pricing and the store the wind brings people in They don't have all the distribution costs have distribution costs. You can't get rid of the distribution bution but They don't have any other distributor doesn't have people out in the street you know. Most distributors have really talented Well educated educated sales people out selling their wines. You don't need that at trader Joe's Trader Joe's does the marketing and I'll bet that cuts big chunk of things so this isn't really it's seven ninety nine. It's probably if it was selling in a store would be several bucks more Maybe Taliban twelve you know it's hard to say one way or the other Because they're you know. I don't know where the grapes come from. There's a lot of variables so this you only get a seventy nine trader Joe's Wine mm-hmm sometimes. It is an actually a seventy nine one. Sometimes it's more and you don't really know because they don't tell you but with this all it's going on with the with the malpractice on on lease and whatever oak aging in there There is a lot going on a very small area. Usually the smallest area the higher Higher the price gets you know. And Edna Valley is a good place for Chardonnay. But it's still a cheap line if you hadn't had a novelli sharpness of great way to check. Check it out and said it is a Richard Style and it was tough. Labor's going on and I'm GONNA take another SIP and I'm almost done here. You got a good mouth field. I don't think it's full elected fermentation because there is some things still going on Anson handsome round things so might be one of those where percentage of it went through lactic fermentation of the end. Maybe it didn't and then there's that salty thing going on with annelies but they took some time to make this wine this is not just a throwaway it tastes good and there you go. It's you know five five years ago you wouldn't get a Chardonnay for seventy nine. That's complicating this tasty and a good wide. I recommended you can't beat the price and that's it for me. We got other things coming up. I think the fourteenth Bhagat Valentine's Day and I might do some persective and maybe some sweet wines or something meet that because it's coming up pretty quick and we'll work on that and audio for now Keep a cheap. And I'll be talking everybody in a bit. Bye Bye.

An interview with 16-year-old author Solomon Schmidt
"Today we have a guest on the podcast by the name of Solomon Schmidt. Now Solomon then Schmidt is still a kid but he's an author he's sixteen years old he's already written five books and all the books are history books he also plays piano and is a member of the Civil Air Patrol. Pretty good track. He's got going right now. Solomon Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me on. It's very good to meet you you too so all of the books that you've written our history books. What made you start to get interested in history? Well my mom has been reading to me from the time. I was really young For as long as I can remember she was putting books in my hands. And she's the one who taught me how to read and write and I guess there never really was a time when I wasn't has an interest in history I can remember specific children's book. It was an overview the statue liberty and how it was built was brought to America. There was a little picture book for eight eight nine year olds. But that's that's the first American history book I can clearly remember. I remember from that. I was really interesting. That titanic for the longest time so. We're not a lot of books on that. I watched the nineteen fifties sixties version of it. And like you said I just can't remember a time when I wasn't interested in history and it it spiraled into getting interested in specific topics like World War Two which I was on for the longest time Winston Churchill all the battles and generals and civil war American Revolution Revolution usually military history so what fascinates me the most. But I can't remember a time when I haven't been learning about it and intrigued to learn more on read more and study more. Know if I've heard correctly is there some connection to your family in the military and specifically Pearl Harbor. Yeah my great grandma who turned ninety eight just a couple of weeks ago he was actually at Pearl. Harbor was attacked. Is One of only a few survivors left he was. He was removed from the main area of attack. He was getting his ammunition. Inspected in officer ran into the tent. And he said grab your guns. We're at war. And he said by the time everything was got everything was pulled out and gun ready for the attack to to fight against the Japanese planes. The first wave was gone and around. He he told me that he didn't have a big part in actually fighting against the Japanese. But it's it's always something that has stayed with him and he still villas memories of being there and a fighting the Japanese in the Pacific he drove trucks around. That was his job he i. I'm not sure if he was ever actually in like battles where he shot people but he he served in the war for four years and I really think think that's something that I can look back on and that's a tidy history right there in my own family. You know one of the few people that's actually survivor. Pearl Harbor is my great Grandpa by bombs. GRANDPA and he's he's just a great guy he's He's still plays his harmonica nursing homes. You know he's almost a century old but I I just I love people who have continued to keep the legacy alive by teaching people about history by carrying about our country and knowing knowing that patriotism and a love of country especially when you're serving in the military is is so important and he did have that and he loves America and Pearl Pearl Harbor. I think is something that has always stayed with him. He's usually pretty quiet when I talk about his military service or when I want to ask him about that but Pearl Harbor is something. He opened opened up to me more. I think because it's something that I said He. He wasn't like in the main part of the attack but he was definitely impacted by it. Yet will the military is a giant into organization and the Mount of people that are actually on the frontlines. Fighting is usually very very small much smaller than what people think. But in order to get those troops on the front lines to actually be able to fight there is a massive amount of logistics. What does the logistics means? It means that people need food. The people need fuel. The people need ammunition for their weapons. They need medical supplies. There's all these things that the soldiers that are on the front lines need and so your great-grandfather you said. Greg Great-grandfather for data admit is his name. And he played the role that he played for in serving. His country was to deliver those logistics in the front lines and even though he might not feel or you might think oh he. He wasn't fighting on the front lines. Trust me as a front as a guy that was on the front lines. If you don't have those back back logistics behind you to support you. You're not going to be able to make anything anything happened. So that's why whenever somebody tells me that they served no matter what capacity they served in the military. I always thank them for their service because they were doing what their country needed him into. New -solutely yeah. So you transitioned at some point from reading about history into writing about history. How old were you you when you wrote your first book I started writing it when I was twelve and I had been struggling for a little while to kind of wonder you know? What should I do what? What should my thing be? I started by making a board game called politics power and it was a little makeshift game. Made the book. The board game politic power. I started that I think when I was eleven. That's interesting and I started putting it together just so you know when I was eleven my friends and I were throwing mud at each. Yeah I think you're you're already progressed a little bit further than me. Okay so you make the board game politics power. Yes so I mean it just had it was Kinda like monopoly. It had a board exactly like a go position. And you know you sent to jail you commit a an illegal act in in politics but it had all these pieces and I. I've got everything but of course then it comes down to actually okay. But how do you finish and actually make it a board game so struggling to not to do that and I came down to the basement one day to my dad's workbench and we started talking and he said you know Sama. What do you really love? And I said well history debt and he said well. Why don't she writes history book for Kids Your Age and other time? I think it was eleven when that happened. And I was intrigued by the idea. And we know this man who's written over over a hundred bucks and he gave me a piece of advice. He said well actually told my dad. He said never do a project if somebody else has already done and done it very well focus on. You're just wasting your time so my dad told me okay. I'm glad for you. You should do this but be sure there isn't anything already out there like it so I did my research. I looked around around and couldn't find anything in the format or for the audience targeting about US history. And I knew that's what I wanted to do. And I finished D- I worked on it for several months. Finishing the sections and I can remember one time we run vacation in the Adirondack Mountains in New York. I remember. That's where I wrote the Cuban missile crisis. This is on the way. Remember that but certain things stay in my memory from all different points of writing the books Yeah that's how. US History Bites game to be now how you kind of breezed over the fact that in a few months you finish the book now as you know I've written a bunch of books as well and it's not easy to write a book and I always tell people people the books don't write themselves you actually have to get. You actually have to do the work. What was there any particular thing that you did to to ensure that you got your project done? Well I can remember with. I don't specifically remember with us. History Bites I remember that my goal was because at the time. I didn't think I was going to be writing any other one so my goal was just okay. I just want to read this book so I didn't have a specific time. I think no of course the research process is a completely different process and takes by itself. I think I left myself six months to actually write the thirty sections and I I can remember clear with my last books though With my most recent books I would. I would figure out what day of what month I needed to be done by and I'd figure figure out. How many sections I would need to do in order to achieve that goal and how I would need to break it up and I'd get it done and it really just came to a matter of each day I'd go okay whether I have a headache or not whether I feel like it or not? I have to get this section done today. I have to get this part of research done. I have to read about Gandhi today. And that's what I need to do and kind of like you talk about your books. I went to bed feeling great and I woke up the next morning feeling ready to go onto whatever was next one of the things things that I talk about when it comes to my writing process is I write a thousand words a day when I when I'm writing a book. I read a thousand words every a single day. It takes me about forty five minutes to an hour to get that done and what it does is a couple big benefits to it. We'll number one. You're slowly chipping away at this big giant project. And if you try if you woke up today and you said I'm going to write a hundred thousand words today. That would be very intimidating. And I don't recommend doing that. And if you wake up and you say look I'm GonNa find forty five minutes today. I'm GonNa find an hour and I'm going to do what I'm supposed to do. Which is hammer out these thousand words? What's good about it? That's that's good. You Get don little bits at a time. Which is it's easier you ever heard that expression about eating an elephant? How do you eat an elephant? One limited time. What one bite at a time right one bite at a time? That's all you can do. You can't eat that you can't stop that whole elephant in your mouth. Not that I advise Edna elephants but if you were to have to eat an element elephant you'd want to do a little bit at a time so the thing is that you're taking little bites of your project the other thing that's good about writing every day in my opinion is if I skip three days Of writing when I open back when I opened a computer backup to start writing again. I forgot what the last thing I wrote was. Now I have to go back and spend twenty minutes or thirty minutes or maybe even forty five minutes to an hour reading what I wrote to get myself back up to where I can start writing again. I have to redeploy my brain and that redeployment time takes time. So that's why I always recommend you. You take that and you you do every single day and what's good the reason I'm spending a little bit of time talking about this is that this applies to really anything really anything that you you WanNa get good at. Whether it's you WanNa get good. I play guitar. I know you play piano. You don't want to try and save up for a month worth of practice at piano and say oh well going to do is just one weekend. I'm going to practice eighty nine hours. You know. I don't even know if that's mathematically possible but you don't WanNa do that you will. It's much much better and and it's better for your skill to practice that instrument every single day. If it's a sport you want to get good at. If you want to get good at dribbling a basketball don't just say okay. Well one week before basketball. Ask Ball season. I'm just going to dribble a basketball a lot for for eighteen hours a day. That's not

This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Ali would. We're all being hit constantly with spam, callers online, phishing attacks scams and other fraud attempts. But there's medical evidence that otherwise healthy older, people might become more vulnerable to these attacks. My colleague David Brancaccio, host of the marketplace morning report has been reporting on how our defenses get weaker as our brains age. He said some researchers are figuring out how technology is used to scam people, and how that same tech could be used to protect them and just spoke with a researcher at the university of Florida Natalie eb ner from the department of psychology there. She and her collaborator, Daniele Oliveira, a computer engineering. Professor wanna know who is especially susceptible to scams, and who is not they sign up older. People I study put in a special browser on their stuff and then sneaky, researchers they creep in fake phishing emails to their tests subjects and the track who falls for the fake scams. Here's Dr EDNA. And almost majority of our sample forty three percent fail for those phishing emails, this included young and older diets, but it was, especially the older women who showed a particular vulnerability to those phishing emails, and most importantly, what we thought was that there was very little awareness of the risks that's terrifying. So they turned out to be vulnerable, but did not think that they were vulnerable and then tell me more about this forty-three percent. The people who fell for this, the most is the key. Right. Who might be extra susceptible so that we can help them protect themselves. It's not really their general health. It's not just the older. You get one interesting finding here older people with what researchers called negative affect where extra susceptible to online scam. So what's that mean? Well, they tested to see if people were having a bad day. Those are the people who seem to be prone to falling victim to these online scams.

Vaccines are a silver bullet for public health UNICEF immunization chief
"You I'm Annika move with you and use vaccines, effective, safe inexpensive and a silver bullet for public health that helps save countless lives across the world each year. That's according to Robbie Nandy principal advisor and chief of immunization for the UN children's fund speaking on the launch day on Wednesday of UNICEF's ashtec vaccines work campaign. It's also the beginning of world administration week and UN news SuAn Chen begun by asking me, sir. Ninety to explain how vaccination works. Version their weekly administered to an adult for certain diseases and the way it works in the actually simulate the human bodies immune response to to fight that these, you know, many vaccines got inactivated components of the actual virus in aiming to prevent and basically by holding that armless violence or components of the virus actually emulate the body to develop an divorcees invite me the whole in the in the national kind of like training the immune system. Correct. Yeah. That's a good rate of the grading of the music. As far as I can recall, the vaccines that I've got most of them. I got it. When I was very young before primary school say in other words, why do maze of the vaccines were given at an early age. Vaccines are given at an early age because children are most vulnerable to these diseases and the younger the giant is the more vulnerable. The giant is complications of the demean getting really think disability and even debts in some kids. And so we try to give the vaccine early in light. So that the vaccine protect now number of pins of, you know, some needs to those like need to induce lifelong, immunity, so you get to those of measles vaccine in Joshua. You don't need to worry about me for the rest of your life. But when having said that you also give it at an age where the child is old enough to have a mature mills. That's you don't give it to you. Don't give all that team that birds for example, typically those between nine to twelve months of age and by that time what happens with the guys. Immune system is ready to be trained. And he and he these in the blood that are from the mothers have already left the giants system. So that is the idea of reneging bedstead being of nine months age of one year. But you what is the current situation of global immunization and uh some of the main challenges in has done a great job over the last twenty years. So you United nation has more than any other. All of our intervention even events like oral rehydration for diarrhea is not available at that. Never probably that. Even I mention. However over the last ten years like venues, we have seen ignition in immunization government. Why is that goes on one hand? Once you have re eighty percent coverage by anything present w everything the remains in much more difficult to read and be done in analysis, or where these unreach- even are their idea in remote rural the health services cannot read or they are in conflict affected insecure here ready, the breakdown of health services and limitation poppulation movements in our world is being being delivered. But in some cases, they're not billing, and and the kind of area in urban read the vocation beagle. Living glum urban area, regretting overnight and migration UC unvaccinated kids there so you can largely. Would is in the number of. But did he leave for low middle income countries in low income countries? Now, you have a different situation in high income countries euro to sing measles in countries like Iran using needle in Europe. And you think measles in in the United States? This is not because of inability of the services to deliver the vaccine these are people who are liberty not seeking the vaccines. And the this happen, you do a combination of things one very important reason complacent because in many of these countries are the United States, you know, they shouldn't program has been talking festival that people have stopped being large outbreaks of many many options in these countries have never seen against windows. Sunday's sense of complacency both from the health systems from the provided of feeding the job is done and the no longer and also complacency from the side of the community. And the family where you know, they don't want really spend time go out and get a vaccine over the and they don't see or they don't think that they going to get. So I think these outbreak reminders the importance of continuing to have high coverage and continue to make sure that target and reach on vaccinated get so that we can actually prevent the outbreak. So the reasons for unvaccinated are extremely different depending on the company that you talk about or even within country, the pockets runback donated very different reasons some cases is because of lack of services you now day inside areas is lack of trust in the system. So they don't want to go and receive thirteen it could be lack of perception of quality people are worried about the quality of services. They had abandoned Priem hell will route to them or they rented for a long time and didn't get services to. They don't go. Back. Other individuals means that may prevent people from being thinking that even when they're so there are a lot of reasons. One on the nation in multidimensional. Recently, the issue of the sacred anti vaccine is very much in the news in your opinion. Why certain positive for relation are having doubts about maybe effectiveness, the safety this vaccine. Start with you. We have to say that the sentiment is not the news, and it is as old as vaccine itself right to beginning. They were been people who are skeptical and are anti Mexican will where I be. Enti experts say is not new what is new is that they have different medium of negation, social media EDNA. No, social media. Sped into making very effectively can also spread misinformation. Very effective. So this is the dynamic and you're right. It has been in the news a lot. He seemed to be vaccine is affecting people were previously acclimating stop that knitting. She's too early to tell whether they're having a major impact, I'm sure they're having an impact with scale of the impact on peered because we are not seeing precipitous decline. We're seeing more of techniques for the people who are not connecting before still not letting but people were that made of that Canadian. We're not seeing that yet to early to jail. Although there are some cases where our interests by misinformation and pushes that concerned about that they'd be but it all revolves around trust. I think that if there is an element of trust in the health system, or we advise of the professional video attrition communities are unlikely influenced by misinformation because they will be permission. So it really important that the trust is built with the community between the community and the health system number two public health professionals. I think here as possible. Ensure that they're cleaning formation readily available and can provide it and people when the obstacle information do the pediatrician. The. Man of the earth. We should be able to reassure people when they have questions of embarrassing important, vaccine information is more readily available to parents communities, then misinformation, that's basically the third thing is to address our supplies. I me me every user friendly. So that the community's values services for the to be of good quality. That's when they are more like these. The number of things that we can do. And we think the example of what we can do as unit there drew be global United nation partnerships to mingle Nabila. Unusually join our hands to ensure the things happen to mitigate the impact of the misinformation that we of course, we also age with the social media platform, we can work with them to ensure that sexing into major, and you would be the limit the mittens and his anything
