There was very little union presence throughout the war so it was as if nothing had happened in fact there were slave owners. He moved west to continue. The practice of slavery moved to texas for that purpose so this day this was a big day. He arrived with almost two thousand troops. Some of whom were united states colored troops and they enforced this order. What what kind of the history. Of june teeth in the legacy. It's only recently really bad. It's become more widely known.

"In Galveston Bay. So water-quality answers the question of is the water safe to support wildlife, fish crabs, invertebrates, and mammals that live in Galveston Bay and also in the rivers and. So we look at nitrogen phosphorus and dissolved oxygen and nitrogen and phosphorus largely come from the land through our rivers and values, and then up and up in Galveston Bay, and so even though the average grade for phosphorus rivers and biases. See in the Bay received an eight this year, which means there were fewer. Samples that exceeded the state screening levels and that means that is good news for aquatic life in Galveston Bay? Bob. What can we all do to help maintain the high water quality in the Bay So one little program we have it's called a rain barrel program. We work with homeowners to have them put rain barrels on their gutter system and to catch rainwater when it flows after big storm and than having that water flow off their property and potentially take pollutants and contaminants with it they can conserve it and then they can use that water to actually wanted gardens water their plants. So it's really a double benefit there you're conserving water, but also preventing that runoff, which can add to the pollutants that come into Galveston Bay. This is Houston matters I'm Craig Cohen We're discussing the twenty twenty Galveston Bay report card just out this morning evaluating the state of Galveston Bay.

There is so much habitat in the Galveston Bay system including watershed that we need to conserve and protect, and so we look at salt water wetlands, freshwater wetlands, underwater grasses, and. and. What's exciting this year is that even though the grades haven't changed, we actually had new data. So are wetland data used to go through a twenty ten? Just, released their two thousand sixteen wetland data. So we since the great saves the day the same that means we didn't have any significant losses in wetlands twenty, one, twenty sixteen, which is good news and that's a very important mission that she is part of in conservation and also restoration but we also have some news on always therese Texas Parks and wildlife has been working really hard to map the reefs in Galveston Day as an effort that's been going on since. Ike. And they have just released some preliminary data. It has not been completely ground truth, but they gave us permission to share it on a map form on the website Gal Grade Dot Org so that folks can take a look and see where the potential oyster habitat is in the bay and it looks like we haven't lost as much as we thought, we did during Ike and Harvey, and those other. The many many challenges at the Bay has faced from storms, droughts, floods. So we're encouraged by that and we're looking forward to the full data set from Texas Parks and wildlife.

"Lucas One of the mistakes I made was gonna the recommendation for a PR person who had done some good work for some when I was working with and got on a phone call with this woman and she basically basically told me that we were going to be on Oprah. Zeppelin should never shown any more but you know we were going to be on Good Morning America to spend my little head around with all these fantabulous list things and she asks for a down payment and in mind to being naive to the process. I didn't ask for a contract or like paid a half and then ask for deliverables. I did not have that. Basically delayed delayed delayed delayed and then the day we had add an appointment She was supposed to send me a report. Never never never never. And then the day we had our with my business manager it was a disaster astor was basically boiler plate in. I'd already paid up front for everything. So that is a huge lesson you know in the business world again. Physicians is at Zero Business Training You know ask so. My business manager turnaround was like okay. Marie-claire you did this without me. The WHO the contract you have to only pay fast and then get a very specified set of deliverables and they do not pay the second it can happen to those deliverables Not they're very sheepish. With open fire. We've all learned how to hard lessons. It's like that along the way so Any others that that pop up for you just ride the roller coaster. I get so wrapped up in the day to day Income you know. Our we did for on a day to day basis especially in in in the Diet. Space helps face. It's it's very cyclical seasonal times. Where people are more prone to look at their house like this time is around the holidays? Not so much people are good morning. Good About being healthy so it's just remembered just to ride the roller coaster. And if you feel like you have got something that the world needs to know about and that is worthy. Just keep going just keep trying. Don't give up the you know if service consider an online course it has been miraculous for the ice. That's awesome that's awesome. It's can I ask what platform he built it in just because as. I'm always curious about that sort of thing. I looked at you to me. I looked at teachable. And maybe one other. I had no idea what I was doing again. Going off Internet googlers and Just kind of on Wim teachable. And did their little online course and went with it awesome. That's so awesome awesome. And how do you so it is a very busy space right. I mean the industry that you're in is very. There's a lot of people there. There's a lot of noise there. How do you stand out a among amongst the others and then how do you just really keep an abundant mindset through that as well? I don't look at anybody else's stuff. Aside tried to work for me at the white and so I just stay in my lane. Were that in front of the research I've done. I've seen to be the only female it'll Bijan physician who is created a program for women at my age. That's just stay there and I talked to those people on that seems to work. I mean when when when I talked to our marketing alliance. I'm like every single woman between the age of thirty eight and sixty four. And what have you learned in the science science. I mean it's because I'm very curious certainly i. I'm right in that space. And what have you learned that That is different that certainly you see this through different is I mean after it certainly after your own experiences but what have you learned in all the research. I've learned that we. We are not focusing on nutrition that physicians and medical practitioners are trained to fix things that are Bergen. And there's there's nothing wrong with that you know. That is a very important part of medicine. But it's you know learning how together pill or therapy for something that's already broken. Why has shocks auctioned in the scientists is at least in this country? There is so little research and information that is done for prevention. And it's almost was treated like well. That's common sense. Why why should we pay for that? Why should we spend money on prevention? Because you should just know better just aren't as a nation in a wet. The other thing researches searches taught me as so many things working against us in industry. And I'm not a conspiracy Arizona last person but when you look at the industry industry as a whole really open curtain in look at the man behind their running so much of how food is treated read it is on a manipulative basis just to make it more addictive in you to be there there to sell food in innate. Don't really care if it's healthy any. And they deserve their to make money which was raised in a capitalist society. My parents are entrepreneurs in the restaurant business. So it's it's really scary when you look at the science of optimizing food what they do to it to make it last on the shelf longer so you know and to to make it more tasty and to make more addictive so that you're more likely to buy rebuy we buy it became addicted and it's at the sugars processed Orders in the sugars. Right right servants to make it happen longer. Shot right in his is. Is that what what changes happening for us. As women that the traditional exercise more eat less approach just isn't working well it works like a champ in in your twenties and then sometime in your forties all of a sudden all the tricks he used to do to get back in the spirit jeans or you've got a wedding coming up and you do all the things I just don't seem to be working anymore. What layers in there for women will for all of us is is inflammation? There's kind of a perfect storm. That happens as we start. Going through. Menopause the changes associated with menopause which really began in our late thirties number one as our cells age they start breaking down. That's a normal natural process. None of us are meant to live forever. That aging process of cells I'm talking about like automatic handrail basis leads to increasing levels of inflammation that however is exquisitely sensitive to nutritional changes matting. That's the missing link in an women specifically just the process of the breakdown. Take down of our ovaries of win. The menopause things start. It's not just estrogen Gesture we lose pre hormones in when you look at inflammatory markers at the bloodstream. Things like site kinds in in our lukens Very technical things when you look at those blood levels just independent of age just the process of pre if you will get pre menopause. During menopause impose those levels starts tyrod and independent of age. So you have aging causing implement in Chris Inflammation you have menopause causing increased inflammation and then finally when we gained weight. It's at this stage. We tend to gain it in mid section way more than we ever have before I would have patients come to me and grabbed their bellies. Shake it in front of me and say what is this in my thirties. I was young and cute. I'd just be like You're not working hard enough. You know these very patronizing patronizing horrible horrible things stations and then when I was grabbing my own Valley winner in what the hell was happening enjoyed a flat summit Muslim allies which Gosh I thought okay. They're onto something here. That belly fat also acts as a has pro inflammatory cytokines as well and then in just a fat deposition there that acts very differently than other fat deposits in our bodies. You got these three things that just put you in this hurling vortex. The good news is inflammation is fought alter nutrition not talking about acute inflammation. Like when you get a cold or step on a nail roads wrinkle. I'm talking about seven out of ten disease. Causes says that are linked inflammation stroke. High blood pressure diabetes thyroid issues. All of it. So are very very very treatable. You you know with the right in traditional changes if you know enough to tell your patients so a little bit more about what the Galveston Diet is. What do people eat? Well basically we. It's a three component program and we start with intermittent fasting and through the thousands and thousands of were twenty three thousand now students without enrolled. I've learned a few things start Mastering intermittent fasting is huge. One it's the scariest thing of the program. The thing that keeps makes you feel must powerful when you accomplish it. It does take a few weeks to acclimate there. And we kind of guide you slowly through the process. The second component is really really doing a deep dive in my gift is is as an educator in medicine. I've always been able to take the complicated medical things. Break it down for patients in a whether they I understand. That's what I do here in the program. It's so powerful for me to educate people not just because Mary Claire said to do this in this will work. But if you win you understand the science you away. More likely sucked evidence shows to stick with the program. You understand when you look at this food. And you understand that metabolic reasons funds were telling you to lean towards this in a way from that and where can people learn more about you and the Galveston Diet. So we have our website.

"Yet took place in Galveston, Texas in nineteen hundred and sometimes known simply as the Galveston storm Galveston at the time was one of the wealthiest cities in America. And it was the largest city in Texas and a big trade centre BoomTown located on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico Galveston had gotten the message before that it should do some storm preparation, including may be constructing a sea wall and they'd seen nearby towns destroyed by hurricanes in previous years, but they still didn't make any moves to fortify the city prior to nineteen hundred the city got its first inkling that a storm was headed. It's way in early September of that year. Year in what started out as an area of quote, unsettled weather near the Windward Islands became a tropical storm that moved over Cuba and hit Louisiana and Mississippi on the way to Texas. So by the time it reached Galveston though in September eighth nineteen hundred it was about a category for hurricane by modern estimates. Again, meteorologists are having to do some backtracking here when it first reached Galveston in the morning it caused some flooding, but it was still sunny out. And according to an article by Chuck lions in history magazine, most locals worked to concerned about the storm. They'd seen big storms before living on the Gulf. They thought they could quote ride it out as sometimes people do in big storms like this. But as the day went on the wind started to pick up, and it ultimately reached estimated speeds of about one hundred twenty to one hundred and thirty five miles per hour. The highest speed recorded was actually one hundred miles per hour. But there's a note there the wind instrument was destroyed shortly after taking that measurement. It. So we can assume it went quite a bit higher than that. The flooding. Also got much worse. The rain just kept coming and tidal surges reached from eight to fifteen feet people started heading upwards trying to get to the highest points that they could in their homes, but it didn't really help the surges swept up homes from the foundation and the wind was just throwing trees and other objects.
