"With any issues that might be affecting you or someone you care about, Perhaps a child and in this case, we have one from Lynette today in Issaquah, who said I did a lot of hiking over the Labor Day weekend. But all of a sudden, I think I overdid it because every time I try to come down a slope, whether it was coming back from my high car now, just even down a simple sidewalk slope. I'm getting a bunch of knee pain, any idea what that might be and what I could do to get rid of it? That's Lynette and Issaquah. Lynette. Miss Quad. That's a great question. I think we talked about this situation or scenario in the past. Let's talk about the need joined again just from a mechanical standpoint or what we call biomechanics. The knee obviously is formed. By a couple bones. You know you have the femur that sits on top of the tibia. And then you know in that groove or what connects the quad muscle to the lower leg muscle. Is that patella or that kneecap and that kneecap again sits in that groove. That's formed by the end of your femur. We call that the inter controller groove and so the kneecap sits right in that group. And when you go up and down or flex and extend your knee bend or straighten your leg that kneecap is tracking up and down. It acts as a folk. Um, it's super important in the knee joint ad, mechanical efficiency and strength efficiency to the quarter. Some muscles if you didn't have your kneecap or your folk, um Your quad muscles would be very inefficient. Okay, so as a result of being a folk room when it tracks up and down their groove, sometimes it creates pressure or a a wear and tear or irritation to the back side. Of the kneecap. And maybe into that end of the femur and that inter Candler groove that cartilage just gets inflamed and irritated, particularly when you go up and down stairs deep squatting flexion extension activities of your knee. However, going up and hiking going up. You're doing what we call a concentric contraction. So your muscles or shortening are shortening which is causes pressure on the kneecap. But not like when you go downhill, which is called e centric contraction. So going down gravity is trying to pull you down when you're coming down from a hike. Or coming downstairs. You're loading that kneecap, he centric Lee causes increased compression or pressure on the back of that kneecap into that federal groove irritating that cartilage causing little bit information, So I'm guessing you have a little Patella femoral syndrome coming on here, Lynette, just from probably increased activity up and down, particularly coming down. People say that all the time you know it's fine going up. I felt good, but also when it came down, I felt increased fatigue, which he centric contractions or that lengthen contraction. Is more fatigued on the muscle and more irritating on the Patel. Family joints, so to speak, so I'm guessing it's a Patel. From what irritation modify your activity. Avoid inclines. Avoid stairs Avoid deep squatting for a little while. Work on your flexibility of your You know your whole lower extremity work on your core strength. Look, work on your glute strength. All those things need to be strengthened up. Flexibility, modified activity. Let that knee joint calm down. That's most likely which what Lynette is experiencing Tom Isn't it interesting that you know you could be out of the walk or doing something like that, and you reach the peak and you say it's all downhill from here, meaning that's supposed to be a good thing. But it can be a bad thing when it comes to your knees and your your feet. Oh, absolutely. I mean, it's all the loading is the loading principles. It's the mechanics of the muscle contractions that East centric or that lengthening contraction, you know, and that's why when we train, we train a lot of people. So that's what physical therapists do. We look at those problems. We identify the problems we create, uh, an opportunity to change that and a lot of times. It's strengthen those muscles. East centric Lee. Most people think. Oh, I'm just going to Do these exercises shortening my muscles, But you have to have that control in lengthening that muscle and that strength and lengthen that muscle. That's that s centric contraction. That is so important. That's why when you do exercise that we talk about slow Curl.

"Sullivan, brought to you by Subaru of Puyallup just got an update from the state Snoqualmie Pass will remain closed until at least noon. That's when they're going to have their next assessment and give us an update there. Apparently the Avalanche Danger. Still, too, too difficult up there, so just be prepared. We're gonna be watching that thing throughout the rest of the day. But that's what we're dealing with. Their Stevens passed did have Avalanche control earlier this morning, It's done change required over Steven's tracks and tires required over white. Now the rest of the map down here in the in the valleys, the lowlands look relatively good. The heaviest slowing we have us on the four or five North bound drivers. You work your way up through the rent in s curves. But under 30 minutes from rented to Bellevue is pretty good. We do have some slowing on South Bound I five as you work your way towards the Mill Creek interchange. Nothing too big.

Minneapolis development to use groundwater to heat and cool buildings
"Gas A. Minneapolis Development Project will use groundwater for heating and cooling. The technology is called. Aquifer Thermal Energy and the city of Minneapolis seems to be embracing it as an alternative. To greenhouse gas emitting natural gas but how can aquifer work as an energy source in? Minnesota's frigid climate. Nina Axelson is the vice president for sustainability and outreach at Evergreen energy they are partners in the upcoming tower side innovation district. Hi Nina Hi Paul Geothermal energy one. Oh one I. How does it work? So a lot of folks are familiar with using the energy stored underground whether in our soil or in our water to heat or cool and Minnesota are aquifer systems in our hydro. Geology are really special and lend themselves well to this. Type of geothermal is counting on the energy stored in the water in the Aquifer to help heat and cooler buildings. What's the water temperature in the aquifer that this project will be tapping for the city of Minneapolis? I think we'd be looking at about a forty to fifty degree temperature as a starting place and then as the technology goes into US. You're actually removing heat from buildings. Between let's say May and October and storing it into a part of the Aquifer that allows for a reserve of heat in that Aquifer so that in the winter that part of the Aquifer that you're extracting from the heat is going to have higher temperatures more capacity and is that able then to generate enough heat or cooling for the buildings. It wouldn't be able to do it alone so this is under the trend that folks here about of beneficial electrification. Which means you're GONNA pair electricity in this case heat pumps with that geothermal capacity in the aquifer to either extract heat from the building during cooling season or to increase the heat enough to be used for heating the spaces in the building or for a hot water uses so this project in Minneapolis. How many buildings are planned to be heated and cooled with this project in the tower side innovation district which is part of the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis and also the saint. Anthony Park neighborhood of Saint. Paul there is been a lot of development The Green Line surly and the University of Minnesota and the public private investment into that area. So right now out of the gate for this coming year. There are four buildings that are interested in connecting to the first phase of the system but the capacity of the system is fairly limitless so once it's infrastructure is in place all new development in that area would have the potential to connect how new Issaquah for thermal energy and as Minnesota and early adopter in the US. So it's actually been around for at least over twenty years. Most of the applications are in northern Europe Netherlands Scandinavia where? There's over a thousand sites there are not A lot of these in the US so this is absolutely a place for Minnesota to lead that combination of are forward thinking policy on clean energy. The city of Minneapolis has made huge commitments to decarbonised the city and are looking at ways to get away from natural gas as their biggest carbon contributor so this technology is going to be A little bit newer for the country and a little bit newer for Minnesota. But the replica. Ability is really high so once we get the tower side project up and running there are actually three other projects being studied in the state of Minnesota because that Geo

Why Are Macadamia Nuts So Expensive?
"First things first macadamia nuts are not actually ups. Yes I know it's ridiculous. It's right there in the main for goodness sake but much like Brazil L.. Nuts again what is it with. These misleading names. The Macadamia is in fact a seed and although they've become a signature staple of Hawaiian Agriculture Macadamia. His are actually native to Australia. We spoke with Glen Soko an economic development specialist with the Hawaii County Department of Research and development he explained leaned Macadamia. Nuts are originally from Australia but much of the early research breeding work quality development were done by the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. These cultivars are suited for the Hawaii. Climate and do not produce the same high quality nut when grown in foreign conditions cultivars is short for cultivated varieties and these are specific types of plants selected and cultivated by humans. In this case. The plant is a large bushy tree that starts producing macadamia nuts spy the time. It's about four or five years old. So how exactly did these Australia cultivars and up in Hawaii for that you can think. One William Purvis office. Who planted the first Macadamia tree on the Big Island in eighteen? Eighty one purpose didn't initially intend for the tree seeds to be a hit. He planted the trees as wind breaks as for the sugar cane fields. The plants were functional and also happens to be quite pretty but he didn't suspect they could bear such delectable and profitable. See it's about a decade later. One are Jordan planted some macadamia trees on Oahu. The trees that researchers think is the ancestor most of Hawaii's trees and the not quickly became a popular snack among businessmen who came to Hawaii to profit off of sugar plantations in the early nineteen hundreds. The Hawaiian Agricultural Experiment Station was established published to get new crops growing on islands since this newly established United States territory was relying almost exclusively on sugar following the collapse of the coffee market. In the nineteen twenties. The government offered a five year tax exemption on land that was used solely for Macadamia production. But most farmers were interested. That is until roasted it. BECA Damian that's started popping up in stores and consumers went wild demand finance went up and the number of trees planted for nut production more than doubled from nineteen eighteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Eight sales slumped a bit after that. But by the Nineteen Fifties Hawaii was turning out macadamia goodies to stack fans throughout the world and major companies. Ladies were making a pretty penny off of them speaking of why are Macadamia so expensive while Macadamia is clearly have an interesting past. And they've tastes taste heavenly coated in thick layers of chocolate. Do they really merit they're often exorbitant price tag after all around twenty five dollars a pound. They're considered the most expensive have nuts in the world. So what's the deal. A bunch of factors go into the price but a lot of them. Come down to the fact that Macadamia can't be grown effectively. On the continental dental United States and shipping them in from Hawaii is costly and growing things in Hawaii is costly to begin with because it's a small archipelago that some three thousand miles title. That's nearly five thousand kilometers away from anything in two thousand. Eighteen Macadamia has made the news for a seventeen percent price. Increase which sacco attributed to Hawaii's fixed harvest acreage and a higher global demand. Furthermore Issaquah said it takes seven years for a Macadamia nut tree to produce a crop. Demand remains high and prices are up to a dollar twenty per pound despite this. There's tremendous pressure on the industry. The agricultural labor shortage continues and that's caused wages and benefit costs to increase invasive. Pests continue to affect the Orchard Health and production. The Hawaii land prices are so high. Hi Orchard Expansion is too costly and producers can't wait for seven years therefore the production acreage remained steady despite the increased demand for the nuts. Okay so that explains the cost but are they actually good for you. High fat foods used to be the most demonized of all kitchen staples basically because of a very effective and sort of insidious marketing campaign put out by the sugar industry but thanks to current research and slightly Leila systemic marketing hype such things as nuts oils and seeds are getting their due as healthy options. We also spoke with registered Dietitian than yell. Birger she said Macadamia nuts are high in monounsaturated fats. Low in net carbohydrates and a good source of copper manganese and thion monounsaturated unsaturated fatty acids have been shown to lower. LDL cholesterol levels. The bad kind especially when they're used in place of saturated fats and refined carbohydrates in one's diet it net carbs are important. Consider because it clues you in on how much fiber something contains in relation to the amount of total carbohydrates present. Having we're fiber is crucial to gut health copper assists with iron absorption and transport in the body while manganese and vitamin are central for carbohydrate metabolism. And while all of that sounds sounds great we still live in a society that tends to obsess over numbers. So at two hundred and three calories and twenty one grams of fat per serving a single serving being just ten to twelve nut kernels. and that's just nuts. Nuts dust chocolate are macadamia is really a wholesome snack. Birger said Ed. Although nuts are high in calories they're also packed with fiber heart healthy fats proteins vitamins and minerals essential to our diets. Having a small handful is a filling rolling nutritious snack to tide you over between meals or can be used as a way to round out a meal on top of a Salad or yogurt bowl. They are particularly good substitute for packaged packaged. Ultra processed snacks. Like potato chips calorie-for-calorie. An ounce of chips than outs of nuts are equivalent but the protein and fiber in the nets will keep you energized full. Oh and focused. She said don't fear fats. They're essential for hormone health optimal brain function and absorption of nutrients and end. According to Sacco Macadamia. Aren't just a delicious treat for humans. They can be healthy.
