And we're going to bring in a few experts some different cultivators and different people. That are business. People behind we'd brands. You know what. I'm saying just to kind of switch it up and add some value to the show. I don't wanna say any names right now in this first episode. Just because some of these interviews haven't been recording yet and you know. I don't want to speak too soon. Be on something. That i'm yeah. Yeah on do it again. so did you know. We as reportedly allow eight thousand years old thousand years old and that there are stories of origins of chinese emperors using weed. Oil originally as Medicine and food. Like maybe like they were using the. They were making edibles before they were smoking. Herb you know saying. But if i'm not mistaken isn't a reference into something of weed or something like that in the bible. I don't know if anybody knows if anybody knows the bible read about right saying that they was out there smoking weed. Or i don't wanna meet that connotation that but You know before stuff became illegal euphemia. People did everyday stuff so it might be in a way in the bible. If i'm not mistaken i could be mistakes so it might be oded in just eight thousand years or maybe re they've They test labs labs test the out. Thc in the levels of the other You know cadaver no aids in the bud. You know what. I'm saying Now records have shown that some of the strongest strains that are out as of right now at about thirty seven point five percent the strongest would forty two this report that i see into of what is thirty seven though i with a phone i know we see what we went today. We got to thirties. We got one at what thirty one and other one that were. They're starting to thirty three so that that was probably the two highest counts on the list. lemonade right. So what the is thirty seven. You pulled a thirty four out before haven't you with The a Thirty five to. Yeah not obviously. Didn't want yeah. I think that was thirty. Five right now for national. Put his right out right. So what the fuck thirty six day. We got these granules which came in a decent thought. This was like thirty three the grandma. Yeah it was thirty three for else. Twenty nine now. The grandmas was. Oh no no no. Not at thirty three was today. The grandmas was at twenty nine percent over. It's a cross between great pie and animal cookies to strains that we've had before. I know that we reviewed great high blast Season last season animal cookies. I know we've had it before natural beauty. I think that's strange somebody else brought in. Ibm smoked Both to very strange both Deal with it was supposed to do right as great flavor profile as sweet you know. Cookie tastes but then you also get like the fruity berries and grapes It's definitely a relaxing we. We smoke that wound. I got in and actually slept good. I'll know if it was because we need sleep at one or and denied day with the grandmas was a good choice her. But i'll mir that. The grandmas was a pick. See normally what we do right. We the do one or two things we the go in. He was the rare strand. They have in their bright or was the highest count. Tac so what he did. He went and got the grandmas. And i looked on the list and i was like well shit. We was going. We both looked pineapple express. Like let's get that but of course they didn't have that own so i got what they call max stumper which clock then it was. It was a little on the low side of the sco for what we usually go for. But i seen that it was straight sativa and anybody. That knows me knows. Sativa is thing for me. I like to be able to move around. I like getting stoned. The the term lie we use sunk into couch. You ain't donors shitting fall asleep. But i move around ally satellite the be able to smoke and move around and be active so i like to smoke sativa in those situations so i seen that the max tampa was a strategy and sativa is usually. Don't clock into high. you're gonna say. Usually the indicates that clocking on the higher side or hybrid indica dominance. They're clocking on the high side. Right right so tiba collecting. I think what twenty three but it give you. I don't want to say a burst of energy like his energy drink or something like that but it did give you a up now. You know what i'm saying right. And then this morning we woke up after being sleep in being in a fog all day for me. I had a slight headache. And i woke up smoking thing. This is when you went to. The store smoked the blended in like damn soon as i got on my damn head even me and i was able to get up and move around. So i don't even know the properties of the quality of the max or grandma's bud sent me at the jewish smoking in and experiencing the high from it. You could tell what they supposed to do like you said the grandmas give you the relaxed filling to wear you found me you ready to chill out and take it down type should the max stuffer is Stabber oh gee it's a great heavy flavored which another raker rookie smeltering.

We'd when we go to these places with their night we're not paying the over charge on our overcharge but you paying for the packaging you paying for the presentation you paying for the curator's or the would you call them the bar the people that that come and talk to you first getting about you paying for the experience go along with this week and go along with the name discounts from some places. Like there's some places i get discounts round. Oh yeah that's why. I wanted to go pick up some of their some tropicana got nice. Discount even went back to tropicana But yeah i These these were too great strains and more so than that. I knocked off something off on my list of one to find one of those low key mason jar spots.

Fancies all the time you know what i'm saying so now used to be my little just going to make me hire a but i guess it is a true fact. I never knew that. So unpopular opinion Monogamy may not be for everyone. But it's definitely natural and not just some societal construct. This person says i understand that open relationship work for some people. But i find it just exhausting. The so many people use these situations that shoes to insist on monogamy and itself is totally invalid. Thing that no one is truly monogamous. Are humans aren't just meant to be that way All right so long story short. How do you feel about it unpopular opinions. No this is. This is a public opinion but it is. Let me put on my mom therapist. You're saying relationship therapist as i was trying to Ask that's another story. But i think is hard as inhuman to be monogamous because of our human ways brag but in a society you must be monogamous in order to have while in most situations euphemia. Some people might be able to have a polygamist relationship with two whiz more than one person but most relationships only work if it is nuggets right so this would say look. I'm going to go with this is of course it's pop but it's unpopular at the same time this is one of those weird ones because no monogamy is not natural however is expected to be natural because it is a societal construct society in our structure in our way of life. Did tell us that this is what we are supposed to do. But is it natural. For i guess any creature to not want to. I don't know. I may put it like this. In order in order for certain things to work the way supposed to work it has to be a certain way for not only woman feelings and emotions but also man's insecurities emotions. You get what i'm saying. Because as bad as bad as men would love to be an managua monogamous relationship with two women. I mean a polygamist relationships with women as a lot of it'd be ob- damned if are being the polygamist relationship with another nigger and a female.

Where like this so basically this fraternity at a party as part of their initiation can never be part of their initiation For you know bringing in their new recruits right and it was a shits and giggles party right okay.

That happens when you sit down and you smoke some weed with your friends Will catch some vibes in whatever Now we kinda got We're getting started late. We would have already done this episode as far as the recording schedule goes but we got knocked off by a whole day because we ended up In bullshit a lack of better so with all this bullshit that happened with our fly and all these reroutings and all this dumb shit had happened. We don't get the la until ten o'clock pm right. So by the time we get our bags cha cha off the check thing and all that shit like that baggage claim in my mind. We ain't going to get a weed. Because i think all the stores are closed because every store that i know and you should've seen as almost in panic mode right like where we're gonna go where we can we go. We went to one spot man and literally. There was nothing there. We went to the edge the overdrive a circle like three or four. Times was in there. You wanna know what's funny though now. What you think about it with twenty twenty being hindsight what if there was a spot there because of the spot that we actually went to the when he had what afterwards despite their shit will remake so anyways we look for us by right. We're hoping that we can get somewhere to get some weed. So i look up. I find some number online. I called the number. Nobody answered the phone. Shit i'm might shade. I like damn. We had a lot get a text message. Like maybe like twenty seconds later bank. Hey you called this. The shop was up my. Hey y'all open twenty four hours there's like we're gonna be closing at one forty five. I was like. I like a picture. Yeah i d. It will send the address today. We got to confirm your aid for verification. And my fucking time. Racial right away would guess man right some fucking so. I'm like yo. i'm into uber. I can't take the picture now. Soon as i get to the Airbnb got you get to joint. Take the picture ch- sending picture then we get there. They send us to address the mind. You listen y'all we is in california we from maryland. All right so. I get some directions. Say look for the blue light next to the new york pizza place. Then you gotta come around the bag and go through. The would infants with the blue tan. Put it in perspective saying if a nigga tell you to go around back and look for this and you gotta go through wooden fence sound in some way you want to go but this point in time. I'm willing to trust situation. We walking bro. We put our phones away about who To get into every corner. I walked around on that trip. I looked i looked further ahead. You know what. I'm saying before. Before i walked all the way around the corner but we ended up in a below a look right as we. Walking is dark alley like low space right as we walk the lights. Come on as you. So dr then is a little bit like the dark a little bit of luck. God we got what we went for right but we ended up at this little low key dispensary on and it was wanted to mason jar spots and remember i was talking about those on before on last season learn I was asking jay gray about how to find a little local spots and shit like that and he was saying that they were always like tucked away in different places like that so we go into the spot mind do they didn't have as big of a menu as some of the more name brand We spend the reason that we've gone to reviewed on this show but what they did have was a highly
Experts declare $6,000-a-bottle wine aged better in space
"Have been sampling of pricey bottle of wine just back after a year of aging on the international space station. Absolutely. HS. Jane Anson writes about wine for the decanter, one of a dozen connoisseurs taking part in a blind tasting, comparing a bottle of Petrus Pomerol sent into space with a bottle of the same Bordeaux that it stayed in the cellar, the one that had remained on Earth. Me was still a little bit more closed a bit more tannic, a bit younger on the one that had bean up into space talents have softened the side that more floral aromatics came out bits of merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Grapevines also went into space, exposing them to new stresses that scientists hope could reveal how plants might be made More resilient to climate change and disease. I'm Ben Thomas

Riley Arthur shares journalism and publishing tips
"This schmear young. And i'm joined by my co host. Who's dealing with the frigid. Fifty degree weather in florida right now. Skip cohen own. Showing you get not. I mean it's hysterical. Because it's the way we dress down here like today. I've got on shorts flip flops and a flannel shirt that makes no sense and if the fashion police came by most of us would be arrested. So that is. Let's get into today's program because you end. Our guest are both hanging out in a very cold place in the country right now when it's perfectly appropriate to do a hot podcast. How's that that sounds great because it is twelve degrees right now. Right things that. I'll i'll do my best not complain about having to put the top up. Okay hey seriously. Riley joins us today and she is a testimonial to a combination of the grapevine and social media. And here's the fun aspect of how i got to know riley. A good buddy of mine in boston sent me an. I am and a link to her work and said hey you need to go talk to her so a phone call later. That opened the door to this michigan based documentary photographer. She's an art director. She's an accomplished author. She's a big believer especially in themed projects like her diners of new york. Which is a a personal favourite of hers. And i happen to love the just to if you've lived in the new jersey new york area. Then you know that diners are just an incredible Concept she's a national geographic explorer. She's a fulbright fellow and her work has been published in numerous magazines and is in the permanent collections of seven. Different museums nine. Oh there's probably nothing. Riley can't photograph but as a journalist. What i love most about her work is. it's just about the simplicity of life And sometimes obviously more complex than a complex and less simple in any event riley. If i haven't screwed up something in technology here welcome to the mind. Your own business podcast. Thanks for having me well. It's good to have you here and i really am. I'm outnumbered today. Because i'm always complaining about the weather or or making shamir aware that she's in the coldest place in the country right now and now. The two of you can share that misery law like complaint. It's nice to have some company. Let me tell you and and riley. I'm so excited to chat with you because it sounds like you've had a very interesting journey. And we were kind of chatting in the pre interview chat and it was interesting to learn that you are not originally from michigan. But from the lemme say this right. American samoa correct yes. Correct soren and raised. That's somehow you ended up here in michigan. Where we're just happy to be in the double digits today and so kind of. Let's kick things off by having you kind of tell us about your background. how you ended up doing what you're doing today and just how you got here well since you mentioned where i was Warren raised american saw. I think that would be a great place to start off so you guys might know. American simul from a number of things like you know american football players to you know a variety of other cultural touch points. But you know the first person to make american samoa on the mainstream was the anthropologist margaret mead and some of her photographs and writings about american samoa. so you know and Independent som- so you know. When i was young american sama as i told you earlier is the third wettest is place in the world gets a tremendous amount of rain and one of the things that happens is that mold grows on just about anything including photographs and vhs tapes. You know back when there while people are using those so we had a you know a a system where we would take photographs When our film was ready would send it off to get you know in the mail to get back in the day and we get our photographs back. My mom would fill a photo album and then she sent it off to our grandparents the store because if we kept them on island they would mold in a number of years. We'd have no relics of our family. History so i became kind of fascinated by sort of documenting a place in time and the fact that where we were from. We couldn't really keep our photographs if we wanted them to actually survive more than say three years so that sort of drive to document is really becoming a leading charge in fascination with documenting things and being sort of for that picks niche interests. That might be sort of going away. So that's sort of a long answer to your question How i got started in my career was. I had my senior thesis in my undergraduate degree. I interned at the oregon shakespeare festival as a theatre photographer

A County Superior Court judge has canceled the hearing because being Nueva finally showed up. Kcrw's Kaylie Wells has the details up until his appearance last week. The last time Vienna Ava went to a civilian oversight commission meeting was in July of 2019. Six months later, the county's board of Supervisors gave the commission subpoena Power and Governor Gavin Newsom made that power statewide for oversight bodies this September. But when the commission subpoenaed Vienna way the last May to talk about the Sheriff Department's covert response in the jails. In the way of his attorney called it an abuse of power and Vienna wave a called it a quote, public shaming endeavor. Now he's cooperating, but said in a statement that the commission's legal authority to subpoena him is still uncertain. He says he'll cooperate in good faith and return next month to talk, the sheriff's Department says. Since the start of the pandemic, more than 3800 inmates have tested positive for the virus and nine have died. KCRW. I'm Kaylee Wells. Governor Gavin Newsom has made two big appointments.

The State of Agile With Vasco Duarte, Ryan Ripley, and Chris Williams
"One of the questions that came up. I is you know. Let's let's start angry. What pisses us off about. The current state of agile as we experience it daily today. I'm pissed off. And i'm not taking it anymore. I guess i'll i'll jump in here. I've you know todd. And i have been talking a lot lately about we. We've been working with a lot of companies who have been sold. These million dollar multimillion dollar transformations And you know people are slapping different frameworks and different methodologies on top of really deep rooted cultural issues and they're not getting anywhere and at once the money runs out the consultants go away and they're not better off and really tired of watching that play out over and over and over again It's just turned into this big money. Grab where big box consulting firms just slap a bunch of consultants and and others into place. They clear their bench charge as much as they can. They don't really do anything. And then leave and it just That is just perpetuated and over and over again. It leaves a just makes everything more difficult you know. I'm more than happy to come in and clean up and try to teach professional scrum and help companies kind of undo the damage of these big box consultants. But it's like oh. Can we just skip that step in and really learn how to work in new ways and i don't know what do you guys think so. I see the same happening Looking back. I saw the same happening in finland. Let's say late. Two thousand two thousand eight two thousand nine. We heard through the grapevine that accenture have created a natural practice and they had a two hundred page manual and then of course. I was working with At that time two thousand eight dollars working with the one of the first safe adoptions. It was called achard released train at that time. A rt which i thought was kind of a cool art right because his own about art. There's no science to working with people. It's all about leaving the moment understanding. What's going on and reacting and then of course failing but learning quickly and then adjusting right and if i think what what ryan is said and turn the to all the way up to eleven. I would say that we have lost our way we were talking about. The ryan was talking about bringing kanban back to its origins simply fight. Well i would like to remind everybody that this whole atul think did not start with -scriminate. Didn't start with condon either. It started with the small talk community. Doing what they called at that time. Extreme programming xp and if we go all the way back to the roots extreme programming was taking the best practices and just turning it all the way up to eleven. We hear a lot about how safe doesn't have a customer in the big picture. And so on juno that. Xp had a practice called customer in the room so every team had a customer literally. That's what they called it. The customer that told them whether they were going in the right direction. So if i go to what pisses me off is that we're forgetting what it was that we started back in the late nineties. Early two thousands. And i'm not talking about technical practices. We've forgotten those very much. That's for sure. But i'm talking about everything else. Even the the whole idea of what agile is about agile is not about delivering more crap faster. It's about delivering less but delivering what matters about focusing on value. It's about iterating quickly and so the theme in in my presence here on this episode is gonna be you know. How do we turn at all the way up to eleven. Just like expedia back in the in the late ninety s. I liked that. I feel that this thing about who buys the most agile right now. It's either banks or insurance. Companies tend to have the biggest budgets to put out jalen play and so they're of a certain size by their nature if you look at the startup community if you look at small enterprise small medium business if you look beyond tech and you look at how companies are are are pivoting and adapting now during covid nineteen. I still see a lot of really good. Agile really customer focused agile. They get it because they have to. They're hungry. It's easy when you go around a small business to see the customer desire to say. How do we want our customers to feel. That question is present in everybody's mind. We want customers to feel cared for special part of something good. We want them to have not features. Stop talking about features and buttons do but what capabilities we give them and again. I prefer to talk about that. In terms of feelings customers feel safe. Customers feel tend to cared for whereas the minute you bring into a large scale environment. Things start getting compromise. Things get lost in translation as we try to make this work at scale.
It's Our Holiday Gift Guide
"Okay gel so. I think we better start with a nod ben calendar. I mean. it's the most classical gift you could give somebody. I mean i just love this trend that started probably like five six years ago but the beauty advent calendar. So there's so many out there. I just want to highlight one. Though that i think is really good value for your money and that is from the body shop. It's the make it real together advent calendar. Sixty-nine dollars in it's worth one hundred and thirty seven dollars on the outside. It looks like a house like an a frame house in it's purple kind of cardboard packaging. So i like that because it's actually paper so at the end you can recycle it. It's not going to be a ton of waste very beautiful illustrations on the inside and there are twenty four. Little doors that are filled with mini goodies. Yes so i like that you get the full twenty four door experience. Spot is on a lot of bulk and it's not a lot of waste. Yeah so you get everything in there from their lip. Bader is to scented lotions handcream. Shower gels body scrubs. And i like the little extras that they've done. They have a festive nail file. They have hairclips. They have a bath. Lilly in there and bath gloves so these are just like the little things that are like. Oh yeah. I do need a new house. And they've included them in this particular thing so i think it's great bang for your buck and we're spending so much time at home might as well have something to open every day while you have your coffee. Yeah hell yod surprise and delight me every day. You know but. I love the body shop around the holidays because it's great for all ages. It's just so giftable and it doesn't break the bank. So i think that was a grapevine gel. Now i'm really excited to tell everybody about my fine from sephora like i said i crunched all the numbers i put my lake analytics hat on and the winner was the first aid beauty. All that fab five piece holiday sat so this is forty nine dollars. Us with a hundred and twenty seven dollar values. So they're seventy eight dollars in savings. So i know that's a lot of numbers. I just threw out you but basically you're saving more than what you paid for the box. So that's pretty aussie. That's awesome math. It's going to be sixty four dollars. Canadian with hundred and sixty seven dollar value. One thing that i really like about this five piece set is that four out of the five pieces are full-sized. They're not just many. So that's great because you hear a great value. You think it's just going to be the travel size and then has every step of your routine as well. So it's got a cleanser moisturizer cream lip product and exfoliating toning pads. So it really. Has you like completely taken care of all season long. And i'm a fan of i aid beauty anyway because it's great for sensitive skin you know. They don't add a lot of the product. It's been dermatologist tested. I think even if you don't have sensitive skin going into the winter you need that like bare your repair and they have all of these ingredients. That are going to help with that. They've got glycerin to hydrate. Nyah cinema. that's going to help with texture and tone as well colloidal oatmeal. That's going to help to soothe irritated skin and then in the exfoliating toning pads at scott. Aj's going to give you that gentle expoliation. This is a kit. That's great for all genders. All ages all skin types. You know it's just basically like soothing. Brightening doing everything you could ask for mainly hydration so this is a win for me joe. Yeah and no hate no shade to first aid beauty. They're not necessarily sexy looking packaging or products. But they've dressed them up right on this package. I have it right here too. So kind of like an art deco vibe on the front of it is really fun. Ads like silver and gold and black with celestial stuff on it. I mean anybody wanna open this for the holiday awesome levitt. If you guys are on a budget you know when you're not willing to pay the the triple figure price tag. I know you found a kit that was like sitting right around twenty five dollars with some products that we also love right. Yes so this is from bioscience. It's their lives glow kit. It's twenty five. Us dollars with a sixty two dollar value. That's thirty three canadian. Seventy nine canadian value so this includes two products. The scaling and lactic acid resurfacing nights serum plus the scaling and vitamin c rose oil. These are both like smaller. They're not full sized. Get the full experience using these products and for me that squealing and lactic acid. Resurfacing night serum. It's one of my favorite products. I've tried in all of two thousand twenty and the reason is you put it on before you go to bed. You wake up. You're so glowing. It's insane you get those instant results. But there's no irritation and then the vitamin c rose. Oil smells amazing. And it's not greasy at all and it really. I think is a great product to use in tandem with that exfoliating. Yeah i love a face oil. When i'm using heavy duty exfoliating because my skin just got so dry and it just feels like It needs that like give me that oil. After you know so i love this little combo. It even has the gift box like you. Just write. someone's name on the top. You don't even need to give perfect perfect. Yeah love
The Chemical Symphony of Plant Perception
"Like a lot of times are introductions to plants are so sterile and kind of lame honestly that it just doesn't paint the true picture of how dynamic and interesting they are as organisms. Yeah i mean when you when you get into first your biology. They save plants photosynthesis in. That's it it's it's kind of disheartening and really tragic as you think about it because plants have amazing chemistry that they do so far beyond photosynthesis and people just don't realize in that in that context and so it's been really really fascinating might my work specifically works on looking at neurotransmitters. Implants which most people are willing to accept the plants Make compounds that modulate arnulfo transmitter. But for some reason it's harder to harder to accept that plants themselves have signaling molecules. Yeah it's wild especially when you start comparing sort of the presence of these molecules across all links of life and then you think about plants. You know they're not a dynamic moving organism that wakes up and sleeps and runs around the landscape and get scared and has to defend. Its you know. These are organisms that are largely sitting in place to find some of these compounds that you know we again. If you have any familiarity with biology you know animals produce. It's it's kinda strange and so what brady to the path of trying to understand those. I mean there's a lot you can do and bonnie there's a lot you can look at even plan chemistry but why signaling compounds yes so for me. My i can have introduction to plant. Signaling was as an undergrad. I actually worked for agriculture canada and one of the projects we on. I was in an entomology. Labs talking winding paths but One of the things we looked at was on winter annual mustard so like little tiny ditch weeds basically and an house you grow them in vineyards In the drive rose to the rosa you drive down versus the the rows of vines that some of these will actually attract some of the past more strongly than than the grapevines. They didn't really understand why this happened in so one of the things they did. I was to take these little tiny plants and put them in bell jars in actually collect the volatile that came off of the plants and they were trying to look at the interaction between these tests and the the volatile is coming off the plans to understand kind of what those interactions were in. You know i'd heard of essential oils and pollinator attraction and things like that but thinking about it in this different contacts that there's these other on known question. Mark mystery vol tiles That are kind of nuclear. Replace all these sprays by just having these specific weeds in your vineyard was really fascinating for me and soy and a follow that down the line. And i've been really lucky to have some really great mentors. Who kind of think outside the box and question things like you know our plants intelligent. How do you define intelligence do plans perceive things in. It's it's been a really fun fun journey that way. It's pretty wild introduction to this idea or at least this path of career you ended up taking. And it's you know you know you hear these sorts of things and and usually kind of inserted at the end of an article or maybe at the end of An actual research paper where they're like. Okay the application of this we can maybe use this in instead of pesticides herbicides or something like that but to actually see it play out physically and know that this is something that actually goes. Down is pretty wild honestly. I mean like just to connect those dots from these tiny unseen chemicals to predator plant interactions. That's that's really cool. Yeah it's really interesting to think that you know when you're going and doing your instagram shooting. The vineyard your action in the middle of like massive chemical warfare so yes. I'm so glad you put it that way because again there's so. Much misconceptions are weird opinions on the plant world and most of them are centered around the sort of like harmony peacefulness. And they're very quite blake forest. If you could hear it would just be. Yeah chemical warfare screaming. It's a really intense environment out. There and plants are a major player in that the struggle for existence. Yeah absolutely and i mean you said you know. Plants can't get up and move around and things that and it's really. It's really quite interesting because they can't get up and move around but there's a lot of things they can do instead and so it really leads to a lot of interesting questions of if you can't get up and move around what do you do instead. Chemistry's pretty fond. So i'll take your word on that one. I didn't do so wrong. Chemistry and undergrad. But i digress. But yeah and so this brings up a lot of really interesting questions which you kinda hinted at about perception and intelligence and you know plants don't have a brain. They don't have a central nervous system to start processing and really Perceiving the world around them like we do. But that doesn't stop people from taking those leaps. And i think it to me it. Kinda shows a lack of imagination to think that whatever we perceive the world like however we understand our place in this to think that that would apply to assess organism. That doesn't have any of the organs that we do. So in terms of plant perception intelligence. This is a lot to unpack. But it's not like these things are thinking and having opinions on things right. You said something similar to that in the email and it made me laugh aloud for real. Yeah i mean. I think it's easy to take those sleeps in a lot of times. I think people take them because it's easier for people to understand. We'd like to understand things in the context of ourselves. And so you know we think of intelligence in the way that we have intelligence but if you actually break down no what is intelligence. It's really just a set of behaviors and so you can have you know human intelligence or plant intelligence And those are really different is defined it just based on you know the number of senses were pretty dumb only got five senses but you know plants can sense a lot more things in the environment around the because they have to and so the ability to sense something as a definition of intelligence is a good way to start so the example used in the emails that you know people say you know plants have a preference for like rock music or opera music which is just kind of silly. But it's not when you start to break that down and you say okay. Plants can sense. Vibrations and all sound is is vibrations. So fat part makes sense and maybe they can sense. You know different frequencies vibrations also makes sense but does your plant actually sit there and say like no i really prefer this interlude to like kiss song it just you know it's easy to extrapolate that one extra step in and come to a kind of a pseudoscience e- explanation
Author Chat With Katie Zhao
"Katie. PODCASTS, we're happy that you can join us. Congratulations on the release of your second book, the Fallen Hero is the second book of Your Series started with the Dragon Warrior. That came out last month So yeah, congratulations on that. Thank you so much. So just to start off I, know you're from Michigan but did you grow up there your whole life? Yes I grew up in Michigan so I was born and blend and Then I moved to another area in the Metro Detroit area and I grew up in Michigan I went to school at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. So then spent another four years of my life in Michigan. and. Then in nineteen, I actually moved to New York City for. A little bit over a year, and then like back in Dundas may early June ish like when I realized this pandemic isn't GonNa be over anytime soon, I moved back to Michigan. So I am back home with my family. I don't really know much about like the Asian American community in Michigan I know that there's a pretty good like Korean adoptee. Population there. But like I'm not so sure about like the. Asian. American community there. So did you grow up around a lot of Asian Americans so I think Southeast Michigan which is where I live has one of the bigger populations but like it's still absolutely nothing compared to east coast or west coast like my school was probably five to ten percent Asian but I did grow up going to Chinese school. So that was nice. And I don't know about Korean adoptees let the area where I grew up actually has a big Japanese American population Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because I mean it's like Detroit promoter city right so like I think a lot of them would like their families will come from Japan to work at You know un-american Automotive Company for like maybe one to three years or something, and then it was really sad for me because I would make friends with them and then they would move back But yeah, that's like probably like the extent of the Asian. American community around here it's. it was a real shock for me moving to New York and just being so overwhelmed by all the Asians everywhere and like Asians, who are like like really Americanized Asians who are also like kind of fresh off the boat. Yeah I mean if you head to Chinatown, it's you know a totally different world. Yeah. Yeah. So I heard through the grapevine that you're pretty well known what? Pad Author. So I'm guessing that you have been writing since at least highschool I'm probably younger, right Yeah. We're civil. What Grapevine was there? It was just it was just like floating around. Okay. Interesting I have talked about it. I've talked a little bit too much about it I like. I like a joke that like I want to like block out that part of my memory but no walked had was like like I might thoughts on that website but. It was a good starting block for me to like really get used to like getting like writing a novel length story and also because it's so interactive I could get like reader comments on every chapter uploaded. So that was like really encouraging and for me when I started writing novels on what Pat I was in high school. So you know I was still dislike learning how to write a novel. So like honestly other writers and readers encouragement meant the world to me back then But yeah, I have been writing for a very long time I started out writing short stories when I was like seven or eight years old, I remember. my teacher gave all of us an. To write a short story and Lake. I. Still Remember that moment very vividly I like was running the story and I was like this is so much fine. I don't think you know had so much fun doing anything yet before I always was still very young. So I didn't know this is what I would want to do for the rest of my life. But then my teacher also praised me and was like Oh, this is like such a great short story, which is probably what she said to everybody back then but. I thought I was like the greatest writer ever so. In this industry, it really is everything but not like being overly competent just like. You know just having enough confidence to continue like pushing through rejections and putting yourself out there I think is definitely key but yeah, and after a very long writing journey I'm publishing novels now. Yeah. Do you remember what story got you that that key praise? I remember we were doing a on legends and myths I don't remember what like I think it was just like a different American legends like like big foot or. I'm blanking now but you know like the kind of and talking about and I wrote about a river but I don't remember like what river now but. Yeah. I just like surprised that I still remember that moment. So vividly because it's been like many many years. But Yeah I i. think that was a key moment for me is a writer.
From Farm To Pharma
"Security is a growing global concern because obviously we all need to eat. In order to protect our crops from pests, companies are constantly developing newer and safer fungicides and pesticides. In order to increase yield, they are also developing better fertilizers however in order to not contribute to the problem of pollution and global warming these agrochemicals have to be tested. That's replaces places like Charles Rivers site come in. Here among acres of fields and greenhouses the latest agrochemicals are thoroughly vetted for toxicology. Do they seep into the groundwater? Do they linger in the plant causing issues for the human or animal that eventually eats it? Do they poison the plants pollen causing harm to already vulnerable pollinators these questions and more must be answered before the agrochemical is approved for use joining me today is Simon. Chapel, you functional manager of the Plant Metabolism Department here number. He is here to tell me about the exotic crops they house and how they keep them safe and sustainable. Welcome. Simon. Thank you Marilyn. Welcome to me actually 'cause I'm here joining you as opposed to the other way around. Thank you. So to begin with can you tell me about the site here and how long it's been in operation? Suddenly will this site be no printing since the nineteen seventies unplanned metabolism the operation for which I'm responsible has been operating since the nineteen eighties. Okay. How long have you worked at this particular site I've been working since the late ninety nine hundred s okay what? Kind of a off topic a bit. What are some of the biggest changes that you noticed in that time biggest changes here. we've punches. Sites within John's river, which is unable. To. Expand from Jeff's Edinburgh to Edinburgh. North Spain, which is enabled us to grow more crumbs. We've also had different types of studies of required. We also need to look at residues which lower lois regard to identify lower lower residue. So the types of analytical techniques we've had to develop an purchase on reflects become more. Refined yeah. I guess technology has also just gotten better. So can detect smaller and smaller amounts of these things. So. Do you have any legacy crops that have been here for a long time? Yes, we have enough annoyed. Coach twenty four apple trees. The we can use when necessary we also have an established field area. So grassland field area, which is agricultural providence for round three decades. On most of the crops, we grow grain from seat or can be purchased locally sourced from abroad tell me about some of the more exotic plants you keep here. So we support the global agrochemical industry. We often need to grow crops which far into the UK or even foreign to Europe for example, infamous common crops that we grow is rice support Far Eastern uses. But we have a long list of unusual crops such as bananas, citrus grapevines, mango sugarcane. The plans can be crowning temperature control glasshouses to simulate growing conditions here in the UK with. Not glasshouse rooms, which we can use when a study be. Does I understand from someone else who I was talking to earlier that the glass in glass houses can quite very you've got the typical glass but then you've got like What he say courts glass very expensive but allows you through and also some sort of special type of plastic that also allows the Youth v through but is has a short lifespan. Yes it's true. Sounds pretty cool. So I understand we have sister sites like you said in northern Spain. Do we use them to get a sense of how these chemicals behave in variety of climates? Yes. We have another science yet during the Nova Spain. and. That's operated by field crowns department were possible. We will run a study unto doors rather than glasshouse because out dose study. is exposed to natural sunlight. So the in life as the study with a crop Mike Citrus, cotton, olives would be in. Spain whilst that for crop like weeks. Oh, shook abate. As it make sense. He wanted mimic real world conditions as much as possible. Absolutely. What is your background this work? Why Line? Why this line of work? Why Agriculture? Having completed, doctoral and post doctoral. Studies in plant metabolism at Southampton University in that gave me foyers training in the underlying principles. Fun Recovers them under very specific analytical approaches associated with this type of work.
Kris' Creepy Clone, Foxx Too Big?
"To Nightly pop you guys the final word on well endowed stars and getting drunk with wax figures. Welcome back Nina. Thank God. We actually did tech center counter. And what did we both say that we need to what we need to both. See if Nina wants to do like a three-way relationship. I don't know you're you might have been drunk now we need to up our energy.

Probably not suggest that is a little creepy but there are there's so many funny things you can do with a super realistic wax figure people. Yeah. It's just I think it's a funny thing to have such a huge just such a thing that normal human beings don't even think about like it's it's hard enough to like afford like regular stuff. I wonder I'm my mind instantly goes like how much does something like that, It does look very realistic. It would be nice to have that in the house if you're out of town. So if somebody tries to bring in and looks like people are home, it is extremely realistic. So the people that have bad wax figures and we've seen dead. They need to get in touch with whoever did Christian. Yes. I was going to say whoever is the Kardashians did an amazing job. The Beyonce one was all knocked know who was in charge of that one. But whoever did this one that artists they need to give for everybody. Yeah, they really do we're excited because we have penis news garcelle.

I mean? Like, I feel like real grown people don't do that. I see what you're saying though Hunter and I've definitely heard through the grapevine Grapevine about other people. I've also done a lot of talking in the past about that. I guess. I'm the one that shares information. I've always liked by the way, you know what I mean or something because I don't want them to go near that person like when I was Twenty-One or whatever so it really depends on where you're at in the relationship. Okay being
How the North Bay Became 'Wine Country'
"To answer Michael's question about when wine country got start and how it became. So popular, we brought in reporter Christopher Beale Hey Christopher Hay alluvia. So let's start with when wine grapes were first planted in the North Bay. When was that all the way back in eighteen twenty three the Spanish created a mission in Sonoma's. It's the first place where grapes were intentionally planted in wine country but the wine made from these grapes was Sacramento Kinda like alcoholic. Grape juice used in church, not what we would recognize as wine, and then in eighteen thirty s some of the early European settlers in the NAPA sonoma valleys would have grown some basic wine grapes as well. Now, when does the wine country that we think of today start to take shape for the sake of the story let's start in eighteen forty California is ten years from entering the Union and this guy named Charles Krug arrives in San Francisco. Crew was a German after the revolutions of eighteen, forty eight in Europe the comes into San Francisco. It was the editor of a German language newspaper in San Francisco. That's Jim Lapsley he managed agricultural continuing education at UC Davis for more than thirty years with focus on wine-making. Now, after a few years in San Francisco Charles Krug gets married and ended up as a dowry getting quite a bit of land. This is the area just North of Santa Lena where the Charles Krug winery is located considered. It'd be the first commercial winery in Napa Valley. The wine country story is really one about marketing and innovation, and this Guy Charles crew gets credit for a lot of the early innovation and wine country including being the first to use a cider press, which is kind of like a slotted barrel to press wine grapes before that grapes were generally crushed by people's feet. When California entered the union, it was a place where we could grow grapes because the climate was quite similar to the southern Mediterranean. It was dry during the summer it had wet winters and differ grew very well here in California. For, is a species of grapevine. It's used to make wine after the early success of pioneers like Cruyff people began to plant grapes and produce more wind and the NAPA and sonoma valleys. But this was still considered low quality table wine and it continued to represent only a fraction of the US market mainly because it was still cheaper for east coast consumers to import wine. From Europe by boat, then from California by train. But that all changed in eighteen, seventy five, the US government stepped in and increase the tax on imported European wines to twenty cents a gallon which leveled the financial playing field for California's wine producers, and as a result, the wines dig it imported from Europe can be much more expensive wines and oak wine that was everyday drinking. That became the from California. Now. It wasn't a linear march from this moment today. The wind industry suffered a few major setbacks over the years but one way or another managed to survive them. Here's a few of the important ones I wine country was almost destroyed by bugs in the eighteen seventies. This is a microscopic bug that eats the roots of wine grapes. It's related to an eighth fit in it's called. PHILOXENIA. And when it arrived in wine country, it destroyed the vineyards to kill the vineyards and the only way could really come up with a solution was to plant on grafted vines the bottom, the rootstock would be a native variety and then on top graft with Vida's Benifica.
Apple-growing is getting more difficult in many areas
"Crunchy ripe apples or a fall treat. But in many areas, growing apples is becoming more difficult as the climate changes in the Midwest for example, were experiencing increasingly hot and wet weather. What it's done is made fungal diseases more and more of a problem later and later in the season. Rami Aroma owns Adams to apples an organic orchard in Wisconsin to improve its yields. He grows disease resistant strains like honey crisp, and he has planted his trees closer together so that they can grow on Trellis almost like grapevines. So there's a lot more light and air that's going into the tree Samis less disease. Ever Omi also prunes his trees to promote good air circulation and when needed he applies in organic fungicide. But, even if the fruit looks great, rain can cause other problems for apple growers. For example, wet weather can deter customers from visiting you pick orchards that also offer hay rides and other fall fund. So ever Roma says, if the trend towards wetter weather continues, the industry will need to adapt I think there's going to need to be a lot of sharing between growers to say, okay, this is what works. So you got to do this to be able to
Coronavirus Outbreaks On Campuses
"There's a vicious victor a window. I think most of the people feel it's going to be November December. It is conceivable that you could have it by October, though I don't think that that's likely the race for a vaccine all the more urgent as new outbreaks threatened college campuses and towns more than 1000 cases and counting at the University of South Carolina at Indiana University. 30. Greek houses are quarantined, and the school is extremely concerned. It's seeing uncontrolled spread. I think you just hear around the grapevine people getting in and then you're like, Oh, this person came in contact with this person. Some students are worried. We have campus corner, which is the block right next to campus, and that's all of our bars and stuff on. There's no Mass there, so if you don't get it here, you're going to get it. Summer, Norman numbering into campus and just days after teams with rapid tests were rushed to SUNY Oneonta. To control the spread of hundreds of cases. The school's sending students home something Dr Fauci has warned against. We don't want to see college students who get infected gets sent home to essentially see the infection in the community.

"grapevine" Discussed on Pantheon
QuakeCon at home
"Quake on. Obviously didn't happen this year. It was at home quite con at home is what they were calling it. Real creative and I'll say this hats off to quite con because I was in their discord and participated on in like the little antics and everything that they did through dischord and twitter and things like that. It was actually like a legit good time. They didn't just throw it like in the towel and say. We're going to do a stream will show some new doom thing and elder scrolls online announcement and okay, that's it. We'll see you guys next year. You know like kind easily just been a bunch of Tech Demos and it still people probably would have been happy ultimate, right. Content but it's nice that they went like above and beyond to make an experience. Yeah. Because quite constant around a quake con has been around long enough to where if you've been it's I mean it's cool. Don't get me wrong like it's the setup is bad ass and it's definitely like a celebration of like doom and quake and fall out like the pathet staples Elder scrolls, things like that. But I think it's definitely like comparing it to dream Hack is a little bit more homegrown community vibe to it. It's not as corporate. The people that are going to quite con have been going for the last ten years. You know like quake built that community of I think the same people are going to grapevine obviously new attendees coming go right there's always out traffic but I think the quake to me feels more of A. Family style experience in a lot of these people know each other dream Hack is more like entertainment rights. So you don't have a lot of new faces every single year it feels like So it was nice that they took care of their own in the sense like you you wanted to to make them feel special and I think they got so many people just involved this which was awesome. Yes. I actually had a lot of fun now of course. With quake CON COMES MY. Annual pilgrimage to quake champions. I've been playing the game since closed Beta. And I shit you not. It's like every time quake conroy around I'm like damn. I'm feeling it I WANNA, play some quake. I'm I'm feeling it. Then I'll play I'm like, Damn this is a lot of fun why why did I stop playing and then I stopped playing like two weeks later I did play some quake this weekend. So did you I'm going to stick with it? It's it won't be like my main game. I don't have a main game anymore. anyways. But I think all all dip my toe in the water here and there it's it's a it's a classic game. You can't beat it. It's one of those games you keep installed right 'cause you can never. You can never beat the joy of playing civil quick game right as especially as an older game to have the ability to jump into something. That's like ten minutes or less at times pretty bad, ass. That's a big positive for big part for us but yeah, it's it's. It's a fun free-flowing game, right like for people that have grown up with those style of games that field there's something about it like you get the movement going it is just you get that direct. Let me tell you what if we have to rank like top ten feelings in a video game like EA sports related I don't know the list maybe this is like a throwaway topic for future episodes. So write it down folks but a direct rocket hit. In quake has to be on that list it really does. Just. That feeling of getting that direct rocket is just it's it's pure bliss. You feel the punch in. makes it makes a different kind of field. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know where it's on the top ten, but it's gotta be on the top ten for sure.

It's interesting to see what does and does make it in. That's new and goes out and What stays like what remains? That's really interesting for me.

Trust the most that I love the most, and I know is the most reliable so my tool. Makeup Kit is always. Big Priority for me. Slap wise, so we're going to look at what's made it into my talk. It my non existent toolkit. That will be major before that we've got loads of new news absolutely bucketloads first up. I know everyone's so excited about this launch is the fantasy skin launch? They have announced their first three items and predictably fantasy skin skincare. We starting with a cleanser. Atone annoys. I mean basic three steps God bless round of keeping it simple. Now. We're going to look at the individual items. We haven't tried these yet. We haven't got our samples yet. They will be launching at the end of this week. So by the time we've tried them. You could have tried them, but let's all stay in touch and discuss as we know, so. We start off with the total cleanser. There's no east as a cleanser, so it's a cleanser to be technical is to in one cleanser makeup remover. Just cleansers. You'd better wash your face. Morning and night y'all this I'm reading directly from INSTAGRAM? Post! This is not my. These are not my feelings. So the ingredients are Baba. Bob Babo Spa. US Jesus. Christ Lindsey rounders from Barbados, but we just cherry an ingredient with antioxidants, each cherry pat with vitamin C. than an orange, but that doesn't really tell you how much fitness is in this product, but anyway it's got vitamin C in there. It's GOT GINGKO BILOBA checking. Never say to control oil and clarify shine green tea again. Rich in antioxidants, fake, a desert, loving fruit that entire oxidants does a lot of antioxidants, and it's got quince in that era. Fruit infused minerals. I mean. I guess quences right, is it? You can get it in the supermarket in jam form. But I don't know so yeah lots of antioxidants. Some vitamin, C in here an cleanser now the one thing I want to point out because this is what you're GonNa, see throughout the range is as a lot of talk of pause. So this is it purifies pause and helps fight shine long after rinsed off I. Don't know how it's doing that I. Don't know how it lands is helping to fight shy long after your off apart from that it's removed any possible oil causing shine when you using it. But we'll see we'll find out step to the skin. Routine is the fat water, poor refining, toner and serum. Fat Water, so it's called fat water, 'cause it's thick, double see, but also I think just thick with a K. would cover it to unique textures. You can pour in Johann to apply. No cottam pads needed so I think rather than this actually being a traditional toner as we would know it. This is actually more of an. It's thick liquid that you porn. Johanna apply directly to your skin, so you don't need to use cotton pads it's it's an essence. Isn't it? Not really a toner? It's alcohol free. That's fantastic. It's a tone of Serum Combo is an essence that targets targets. Pause improves the look of. Sorts Brighton smooth and fights shine, so it's got nice in a might in. We Love Niacin more Baba's Cherry Cool, Australian, Lemon Myrtle and Hazel water interesting, which is all is is a commonly used ingredient. Some people just use which as long its own good see that here Japanese raisin tree to help detoxify. I don't know what Japanese raising tree is. It, isn't it? Isn't it a grapevine? No, it probably is. Maybe there is a tree. I'm going to Google it. I should have done this before I talked to you about it, but I just saw. These posts are set down to record. I thought it was very important news to share with you. Japanese raisin tree to help deflect. I believe you cactus flower to help hydrate and green tea and fig again Richon toxins, so man antioxidants in here which I love the only thing I don't love about this. Think, that's a tone because attorney plus serum I think they're trying to make it sound like something new, and actually just an essence a that's marketing. Sure whatever the poor refining par don't like I. Don't like when things imply that they can change the size of your pores because they can't. They can just clean them. They can't shrink them. They don't open or close open. Close component goes you put closure policy open. They do not have a door on them. You can just clean them I feel like. Maybe it's of hints at that which I love, but it does look like an interesting product with lots of yummy ingredients. I can't wait to see the full inky I can't wait to see the Highlands Review on this I'm sure we will talk about it next week on our event step. Three of the fifties can sorta step. Is A moisturizer obviously, Hydra visor invisible MOISTURIZER SPF. You know awesome. It's again nice in highland acid. Melon Wild Moat. Watermelon more antioxidants. This is lovely. I love.

How to Become a Change Agent in Your Health System with Tony Manuel
"Welcome back to the outcomes, rockets, Sal Marquez is here today I have the privilege of hosting Dr Tony Manual Dr Tony. Manual is a practicing anesthesiologist and Austin Texas. He's a partner with the United States anesthesia partners central Texas and has been in practice since two thousand two. He's an assistant professor. In the Department of surgery and Peri, operative care at Bell Medical School Dr Manual received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt attended the University of Texas Health Science Center for medical. School, completed his residency in anesthesia at the University of North Carolina or Or. He was recognized as the outstanding resident and fellow cardiovascular anesthesia at Duke, university in two thousand seventeen. He received his masters in medical management degree from Carnegie Mellon University and today he's playing. Multiple Roles as as he has in in his career and today we're going to be talking about physician innovation, and in particular how physicians can evolve their career to be greater contributors beyond the point of care and so. I WanNa thank you Tony for joining me today to have this very interesting discussion with you saw thanks so much great. Great to be owner podcasts, and I WANNA. Thank you for actually doing this podcast. Because for a lot of people like myself, it's been a great conduit to learn about what other people are doing, and what best practices that are out there, and it's an alternative to sort of the Journal Review articles that we have historically read and I've actually looked up several companies that you've had on and engaged with them. Really appreciate what you're doing I. Love that man now. That's great. I'm glad to hear that you've done that. That's the intention. Intention and so I appreciate you for doing that, so you know we are having a discussion. Folks Tony and I connected and said you know what the role of the physician is changing, and and so what I wanNA. Do today is just highlight how that's changing through the life of Dr Manual here and so you know I love for you Tony at to just kind of walk us through some of the work that you're doing and how it's changed from just practicing to actually doing more You know as we engage this. You know three five trillion dollar industry that call healthcare. Yeah, it's it's been an interesting journey for me and you know have to credit one of my anesthesia attending when I was in residency, his name's Dave mayor said Gimme, grapevine goes Tony You have to continually strives to maximize your career and Let's see well. What does that mean well? You definitely want to start trying to be the best clinician you can be once. You achieve that you should really look at you. Know becoming really strong in other areas, and I always took that to heart in so I think back to when I first started here in Austin I became the division chief of cardiovascular. Cardiovascular Anesthesia Rochester, saying I helped create division of cardiovascular. Because at that time we were Basically, everybody was doing it, and I fell coming out of myself. This'll be really better if we limited number of people at work in that space and you know put together some protocols and got the team together, and we saw some really good outcomes from that work and I fast forward to what I'm doing today, and that work has changed so much partly because I think every clinician you have to get educated, and I use a rudimentary tools back then, but in after getting that masters degree from Carnegie Mellon I really developed at toolkit that allows me to take on. On much more complex problems that we face and healthcare today. Yeah, that's so interesting, and so you have that entrepreneurial bug from the beginning right so you kind of re retooled the way that you guys approached cardiovascular anesthesia and I'm sure with with much improvements and outcomes, but then you've taken other steps to. You've been involved in startups, and now you're doing different roles. Can you talk to us a little bit more about that? Yeah I worked my way of the medical staff leadership and ultimately became the president of medical staffing while that was a great experience after I graduated with my master's degree. The entrepreneur apart really was intriguing to me. In more important is the. The interface between the clinicians in technology and so The startup is called Dynamic Lights based here in Austin, and it's actually technology out of the University of Texas and They had great idea concept. Basically, it's how to noninvasive map blood flow during Sri will hand you an aneurysm surgery and uses what's called speckled laser technology and I was like honestly Craig. It's continuous. It's noninvasive, but they never really thought about the interaction. How you get it. It's dockers hands. How do you test it? And that was sort of my strength and so I, said well. Let's work together and figure this out and to date. You know we've incorporated. We're FDA approved, and we're. Ducking clinical trial and we're looking to partner with a couple of larger health tech firms,
"grapevine" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"I don't know what happened this year but they went crazy but anyway my question has to do with grapevine said we had a great line that I just let it grow and and let the birds enjoy the great says as a kind of mature but I've noticed that some of the weeds there's gonna be some something like eating the leaves just by looking at the shape of them also so some of them will be coming I don't know if the right word is going to last yeah you know what we would do little critters called is called a great skeletonized her and it's a little added for that feeds on on the the safest best way to get rid of them as a product called BT or bacillus thuringiensis I need to spray that on that's tax ID for the caterpillars and no one else so it's a great way to kill the caterpillars won't hurt the birds and in fact the caterpillars themselves are toxic to the bird that's why they'll eat those caterpillars or the birds can take care of them but he added the bacillus thuringiensis R.

catch it you know you can go to the website sports which honors for garden show you can play back in here whatever we talked about if you like Brian Gilbert good morning Hey good morning Brian thanks for taking my call I have a question regarding my Bermuda grass I have ryegrass over the winter the premier just come in and I got a few patches of batch so the question is is it better to batch my mom right now our error rate my lawn aerating is going to help you more than anything else you know usually the thatch isn't so thick with the rye grass I mean it usually is going to just kind of succumbed to the heat and kind of go away pretty much so if you aerate it though when you have little gypsum or something to help your soil drain better that's a great thing to do for the brain of this time of year gypsum after irate okay all right thanks Brian appreciate it bye bye sandy I've been carefree good morning sandy Hey good morning Brian thanks for taking my call I heard that the gentleman right before about the tomatoes I've got some great tomato harvest this year and it's my first year planning I have a question for you so after these are done when is the best time to kind of plant the next the next crop well what should I expect but you know you can plant a crop of tomatoes actually no you don't have to give up on these guys making it through the summer there are tomatoes that will make it through the summer depending on the location so if you want to shade these a little from the afternoon sun if you happen to be on the east side of the house and depending on the variety but Pearson's in like large cherries and some of these guys will actually make it through the summer so I wouldn't give up on him just yet and it sounds like you're having a great experience so far so continue that now the next tomato planting site season here is going to be about the end of August first to September okay great and then one more question could I use the seeds for Mr meadows Grove the other to make you cannot depends a lot on the Fridays you have but if you want to grow and start from seed if you happen to have your sins or any of the open pollinated ones like like large cherries or any kind of a cherry tomato for that matter you can certainly plant the seeds and when we would plant seeds to have plants ready for you know the fall would be to actually plant the seeds the first part of August if you want to plan to make containers the first part of August like indoors and get him started you could certainly give a shot great Brian thank you very much thanks Anne bye bye let's see next we have an incident Scott still good morning Nancy hi Ryan hi Nancy I have a passion flower plant and it was just doing beautifully and all of a sudden it started losing all of its leaves and so forth and I noticed these little red caterpillars all over at what happened well many people plant pot passion vines to attract butterflies yes thank you and guess what butterflies become are they turn the caterpillars and then the caterpillars eat the passion vine now usually they're not going to be legal to the fashion at times they can be so it just depends on what kind of you know kind of what kind of butterfly larvae you have so if you're going yeah but if you're planning butterflies there are plenty passion vines for butterflies to keep the butterflies round you know the caterpillars of the next stage and we have to let the caterpillars do their job and eat the passion of mine and then the device lifecycle reoccur okay all right so it didn't kill my plant I just have to cut it back they may kill your plant that yeah because they they do feed out of the time when the plant can be really stress the sun it would be good to cut it back let them run their cycle you know there really shouldn't be out as soon as the leaves are gone they'll be gone the cycle to turn back and the butterflies I fly away your plan to grow new leaves in the cycle life will recur okay great all right I'll do that thank you so much thanks Nancy have nice we can have a great day bye Ireland's Gary it may say good morning Gerry good morning Brian how you doing today excellent okay I got a question about grapefruit tree I don't know what kind it is or anything else we just moved into the house and there was a lot of great fruit on it we've been trying to pick off our site but there's a bit of a dispute on who it belongs to it's right on the property line there's no fences or what sounds like a good one to share well from what I understand I would better yet because his Melbourne but from what I understand she is very protective that treats all catch you in there so we picked anyway yes he's gonna sever the rest of it's going to fall off so now's the time to eat up and actually right now is going great for their best so you know if you let her pick him through may leave it and then you know you get the rest that goes from may through June July you know you kind of set anyway I was just so our our side of the tree is pretty much picked over okay and what I was looking at the other day I've got small maybe golf ball size coming back here and is that great progress those oversized three is it going to cause a problem for the ones are just coming in not at all and actually the the great for it right now this is kind of the end of the really good season for it so it should be she out she she back to Canada or whatever yeah she's back wherever she goes well I'll be an excellent time to start the the great for to the other side of the tree it's going to be going well you don't have to pick up all at one time but it's going to you know it's a good to great for right now it's just about it's best if we hadn't had that really hot weather would be its absolute best right now but so they're great for it's all still finding good and the best thing for the great food is for someone to eat it okay I just I was just curious because I like I said she wasn't there when I moved in so I but I've heard the name which is very protective of actually that's fine anyway if what I would do is I would you know perhaps trying to get a hold of one of the neighbors has your phone number and collar and say Hey you know what can we to see the great food off that side of the tree so that doesn't fall on the ground Amtrak rodents sounds good to me hi okay what other yeah one of the real quick question the answer I got Chinese elements in the backyard as well and what kind of watering should by right be doing I'm I'm setting up the sprinkler system right now hello how old is the trainees elm I don't know how big is going to have a good day good size three like our ten inch diameter trunk or foot diameter traumatized about that HM yeah pretty good size tree Salem trees are really quite drought tolerant what else do you have in the landscape is a longer rocker what's around there right now it's it's all walk okay so if it's all rock that that yeah I'm free to be super happy if you water it every two weeks right now while it's real hot and dry and then if we get a monsoon you can water once every three or four weeks

increase where the people are resistant mastic they're like little world I have a P. and one of the Greek people do that is a tremendous amount of poverty over there down the years and yeah this one island the virus the magic in the salad mercifully and then I wanted to mention that I would do the KTAR talk show host that lives in Arizona city must love to drive hi there break your feelings right have a nice weekend you know that the odd thing about poverty is is that you know wealth is is kind of one of the unique things that you know who who is the most wealthy the person that enjoys their life in their family or the person that you always giving the most others are perhaps the person that has more money I mean there's a lot of different ideas a wealth of value in the perfect life and certainly a lot of different considerations and you know I think happiness for maybe the guys living on the Greek island picking the little pieces off of their little mastic trees they might be very
