War already formed protection in the country normally neighboring country or four gene but because of the issues relating to covid many lost their job loss sometime their shelter on some may consider moving on to try to find better protection elsewhere. One thing. I know that people might be keen to find out about how cold it has affected or impacted on migration. Because what's clear from the report released. Is that human smugglers human traffickers. They haven't had any trouble in going around the restrictions have they know absolutely. It's a market opportunity for smugglers traffic yesterday diversified. Their will for try to make some more attractive for these people to embark on those donates on in order to sit come vent a border closure in particular land border closure. They take higher risk on some of the people unfortunately trapping those journeys. Could you maybe tell me some life stories that are featured in your report from the u n refugee agency. There's one that really struck me a somali boy who was travelling unaccompanied from somalia to ethiopia to sedan and then to libya than ultimately to malta. Absolutely on we get to lia people like that they don't stop at the first country of asylum because editor condition are not there editor because they were confronted to incident in the first place. They arrive on the feel. It's not safe address some time. It's because the traffickers has light to them and told them well. We have a job lineup for you in libya. Make you cross through europe on. Those people don't realize that even before reaching libya they're going to get into trouble while crossing swatter countries because the so-called gentle smugglers actually turn very quickly nasty traffic years. Yeah let's just back that up with some data. I know you're report. Says more than five hundred people died trying to cross the sea from libya and twenty twenty often on overcrowded inflatable boats. So what is the. Unhcr the urine refugee agency trying to do with local governments when with local governments. We try to tell them to combat trafficking activity because there are too many known human traffickers that have never been brought to justice on that applies to many coastal states but we trying to work also with communities to tell them to offer another alternative that there might be other solutions on the weights too late when the people reach libya which wisden sarah territory because going to be tempting for people to want those boats on belief the traffic yourself telling them pretty. Tell me about some of your community initiatives. There's one that you cool telling the real story that tries to prevent smuggling and trafficking exactly debts targeting eastern africa mentally eritreans on somali we have mobilized diaspora in europe on the square to let people tell their story. What up to them. So it's sunny filter. Dissolve videos disarm chat forum where people talk to people in their language on. Tell them exactly what has happened to them to try to demystify. On debunk the narrative of the traffic use. Where's your focus at the moment because libya's being in turmoil for so long and it was such a poll for migrants. But we hear that bikini fast has a really growing displacement crisis to yes. there's been a significant increase. In displacement in the western side countries i mean most trillion people displaced because of the conflict. Not that many people leave the region. Manley malians few citizens from rookie. Necessa but many stay-at-home was displacing. Nesia stay nesia. They don't on baucom those dangerous johnny. So that's one area of focus western sale. The other one is the crisis linked to what has done in tigray recently over the last two months on the displacement weariness you appear on ensued. How can you tell me about some of the solutions for placing people who need international protection with their families and talking about family reunification. There are some pilot projects that you've launched with egypt sudan and others. Yes we try to look again at the narrative of many states saying you know but legal pathways exists. People need to use them rather than to embark on the dangerous journeys on. We realized that in reality goes legal. Press quiz extremely difficult to access. If you are refugee camp in eastern sudan you may not get the commission to leave the count to go to the capital city. Where you know. The unbe skilled the country where you have release may not be open or may not exist at all so what we try is facilitate access to the documentation on simply procedural four people.

Interview With Robert Livingston
"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

World in much better place to fight desert locust scourge UNs FAO
"It's been described as a biological time bomb the worst upsurge in decades this time last year. Swans of desert locusts started to spread across countries in the horn of africa devastating crops and people's livelihoods. Fa yours emergency campaign appealed for urgent action to avoid a looming locust plague and humanitarian crisis. Now one year on. I'll we winning the fight. I put that question to senior locust. Forecasting officer keith pressman case when we spoke a year ago or it was just as the desert locust swarms with starting to invade the horn of africa. Could you briefly sum up the events of the last you well. A lot has happened in the past year. The last time we spoke a year ago swarms or just invading kenya in the horn of africa. They're spreading through other countries in the region. And since that time now there has been several generations a breeding. So what that means is that the locust numbers had just increased further and this is mainly due to exceptionally good weather. Conditions for the locus. The the problem did not remain only in the horn of africa but last summer there is a very important threat to west africa. Fortunately that did not occur but there was an additional extension of the current upsurge in southwest asia so in countries like iran pakistan and india. Fortunately the end of the summer. I very intensive efforts of those countries. The app surge was brought under control there but it still remains in the greater horn of africa. So that means them. Kenya's mali ethiopia dan and yemen. And that's that's what we're facing now again this year. And it's very interesting because you know when we last spoke a year ago. I mentioned swarms invading kenya. Well that's what they're doing again now and they started invading kenya from the north from eastern ethiopia from central somalia. I'm just before christmas and this was predicted so similarly to what happened last year again is not a surprise. We were expecting this and are we in a better position now. Are we better place to fight the desert lucasville. Much much better. You know last year at this time. We're in a very very precarious situation. We had you know. Huge numbers of locust swarms had developed and were moving in invading countries. That had not seen logos for seventy years. You know such as kenya other countries. That was a worse situation and more than a quarter of a century. They just simply were not prepared to respond to such a large scale invasion. They weren't trained. They had no resources. I'm no vehicles no spray equipment. No pesticides no aircraft. You know no logisticians. You know all of the elements components that you need in order to invoke control campaign so we were really. Let's say trying to catch up very quickly. We had no funding you know. Let's say desperate collectively desperate. I should say and the country's nfl. We're obviously we're scrambling doing the best. We could have that time but it was not enough we had to really really upscale and that's what's been achieved so now here we are in january twenty twenty one. It means we have everything in place. Yes we do have shortages of funding to keep those operations going in. This is extremely critical. But at least we're not at the stage of having to look for aircraft or having having to order equipment from abroad and wait for it to be delivered. All of the countries have those Elements in place. The faa ledge. Emergency response has seen incredible. International support including the mobilization of funds to tackle the small towns and prevent a humanitarian crisis always succeeding in the fight against desert. Lucas that show. We are succeeding. Yes if we had not been what we've been doing for the past year we would have seen a play by now. You know swarms from west africa to india from the equator to the mediterranean. We don't see that so. I think that that's confirmation that we are succeeding. We have probably less locust swarms than we did a year ago. A doesn't mean that you know we can sit back and relax but you know. There's a lot of work to do but i think the response as you mentioned from the international community has been exceptionally good globally. A more than two point. Eight million hectares retreated and twenty twenty. And that's an extraordinary achievement. These efforts of course they've saved enormous amounts of crop production an estimated two point seven million tons of crops or save last year. That's enough you know to feed eighteen million people for an entire year. The cost of that That was saved is something around eight hundred million dollars and you put that into balance with you. Know what did it costs to save that production we received last year. One hundred and ninety four million dollars so with that investment were able to save you know eight hundred million dollars or the food in additional able to to protect and safeguard one point two million households their livelihood. It's so you know our desert. Locusts extremely devastating. Obviously the response in the pasture has been exceptionally good. And of course you have to remember. We're competing against other emergencies. Such as covid nineteen indeed twenty twenty was a particularly challenging year. What can we expect for the will. The current upsurge continuing the problem. Is that the weather. Continues to favor the locus and you know. In the past locus upsurges lukas plagues they collapse because of two factors on because of the human intervention. You know the control operations everything that. We're trying to do to reduce locus numbers and a failure in the weather at and so far we're saying the former i'm we see those upskilled control operations working very well. I mean more than twenty one aircraft or an operation in eastern africa. But we haven't seen the break in the weather. We had again an extraordinary event last month in the horn of africa. Right exactly where the locust were we had a cyclone in december. Cyclones don't occur in the horn of africa december. But this is the second year in a row where we've had that so until we see you know kind of a break in the weather. And what does that mean. It means a failure of seasonal rains essentially or very unusually cold temperatures or strange wins that might carry all the locus into the ocean and where they would paris but until we see that we still have the challenge to to manage. This locus upsurge and try to to reduce impacts on food security and people's livelihood so for this year twenty twenty one and basically from now until summertime. We need eighty million dollars and the majority of this would be spent on maintaining those essential control operations by air and by ground as well as protecting the livelihoods. That was cave craftsman. Faa's seniors locust forrcasting.
The Birthplace of Saint Augustine
"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one.

The Cairo Genizah with Marina Rustow
"The cairo. Anita is repository of such immense historical value. That sometimes it's easy to just assume the ways that it's important and i'm so excited to really dig in deep with marina on these important issues and think through all the different ways in which the denisa is an important historical record an important social phenomenon and an important lens through which we can understand medieval jewish has as well as the broader context in which jews as well as their neighbors lived. Thanks for listening in high marina. Welcome to the podcast here. Thank you so much for joining us. I really had such a blast reading your book and it's wonderful to be able to talk about it and to think about the really broadly. I want to think about your starting point from the book. The book is called the lost archive. And it's interesting that you are calling the cairo an archive in part because we have this great twentieth century can use a scholar. Some of gorton. Who talked about the guineas in very different terms in the introduction to his book the mediterranean society. He specifically calls the guineas a kind of an anti archive. I was wondering if you can talk a bit about the way in which you see the news as a kind of a lost archive. And what this means to you. When we think about the way that we approach vanessa and the kinds of questions that we can ask about it and what we can learn from it so i called the book the lost ark on that. Actually the claim that i'm making isn't that they can use it self archive but rather that. It contains traces of other archives. Go was right that they use is not an archive because an archive is arranged and maintained for the purposes. Not just storage. But also a retrieval so things have to be index. They have to be organized. They have to be ordered and they have to prunes for all. Those reasons are kaiser kind of different animal whereas they can isa people were just throwing stuff has early with absolutely no expectation that things would be accessible again in that sense. It was an anti our pod. But gordon says the guineas our guy because it was basically trashy what we would call a recycling bin or something like that but the inisia- is one place where we can find evidence to reconstruct the archiving practices of estate. That didn't it's preserve archive. The fontham calif it so in other words like it'd be so great if we could just walk into a building and i don't know cairo for instance and you know see the whole art of the fontham if it laid out there like i. You have a fiscal documents and then you have the administrative documents and are arranged according to date and place. This is how we kind of expect to work what you have in. The asia is a bunch of documents that may once have been thought archives but eventually were dumped and pruned from them because if things are are preserved for the purposes of retrieval then. Something's eventually have to be pruned. Otherwise you just end up with an infinite archives in kind of bored. Acn way and the other is documents that were never intended for the archive those two types of state document against each other. You can kind of triangulate what the loss ultimate archive looked like. So that's the lost ark. That i'm referring to in the title. Yeah it's this question of how we reconstruct the past in the absence of sources or in the absence of an official repository An official repository is both really good. Because it means that you have a lot of material that you can work with an official repository also means that there may be things that don't make it in there on purpose or the get removed and so i think that part of what you're doing here is using the news as a way to think through how we can approach history really different ways. That's right this is kind of in keeping with a move that some people in my field medieval middle east history have moved towards the last decade. Which is from static. Archives to archiving practices the study. we're cutting practices. And i think there's a much much broader movement towards this which is like you have a history of the book on the one. Hand the history of archives on the other which you know. Well that's your field that when you have a sense of how texts were produced and why they were producing the material forms in which they were produced in an survived again physically. How do they survive. You can actually use them as historical source material in a much more responsible way so i think part of what historians had come to do over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is in a sense to get kind of lazy which is to say that we re defied archives as a kind of ready made repository store source material as opposed to understanding that the archives an accumulation of different processes obviously not all historians. Did this. but you know. I think my expectation was very much like you know. I would love to be able to walk into a building and start looking through files and then thinking retroactively about what here isn't here whereas going from the other end which is taking all the discarded material and trying to figure out what an archive would have looked like had it survived is a different story or with is in a different way. There's the archive as it was kept in the period in question and there the curatorial conventions and standards and assumptions criteria are interesting to think about it also often quite transparent and then there's the archive as it's kind of evolved over the centuries. Let's say like. I'm an eleven twelve century historian so as it evolved in a an eight hundred subsequent years. I mean if you think about about it all right. This is a place that has some of the oldest continuously operating libraries that we know of but of course the the archival material that they have in these libraries has been organized reorganized. You know dozens of times since the fourth century or or and that means that we have to start asking different questions and the afterlife archives. From how the archives were actually produced and arranged in the time period that were studying.
The link between wine corks and climate change
"If you open a bottle of champagne or wine this new year's eve take a look at the stopper in recent years. Plastic stoppers and screw tops. Have come on. The market as alternatives ten natural cork but court can be better for the climate cork is harvested in the mediterranean from the bark of cork oak trees. Process does not harm the tree and the bark regrows but the first harvest cannot begin until the tree is about twenty five years old. You can only harvest at oak every nine years. But because they live hundreds of years you actually get to harvest them. One thousand nine thousand nine hundred twenty two times. Carlos does use of amorim cork says cork forest store a great deal of carbon and manufacturing cork stoppers creates little carbon pollution to minimize waste and how power manufacturing production plants often burn cork dust and in the case of amran sixty five percent of our energy needs comes from the dust generated by the production of cork stoppers. Independent studies have found that there is far more carbon stored in a single natural cork than is emitted to the atmosphere by producing it so using cork instead of plastic or aluminum. Stoppers is not only traditional. It's more sustainable.

The evidence was irrefutable therefore it must have been the kind of carbohydrates and fat that made the difference. The mediterranean diet consists of the following guidelines sixty percent of total carbohydrates from grains fruits and vegetables. Those intrude whole rice fresh vegetables and fruits whole grain breads and cereal polenta pasta made with whole grain not refined white flour spiring use of red meat fish and poultry the typical adult Mediterranean consumed about fifteen ounces of red meat and poultry per week.

Health and fitness facts the day by twenty minutes fitness so the Mediterranean diet is a way of eating based on the traditional cuisine of countries bordering the Mediterranean. A really originalist. Et Miss Way from around the nine hundred sixty s replicating their diets. These countries include Spain. Italy Greece southern Franz amongst a few others and although there is no strict definition of the Mediterranean Diet and there's no way to follow it because there are many different countries around the Mediterranean Sea. And obviously people have different foods. They eat in these areas. It really revolves around eating a high level or vegetables. Fruits whole grains nuts seeds and olive oil researchers have noted that people following these diets were very healthy when compared to Americans and they had a lower risk of many lifestyle diseases the fundamentals of the Mediterranean Diet than the consumption of vegetables whole grains and healthy fats which we talked about limiting your intake and red meat's having a moderate intake of poultry. Dairy your fish or eggs. Both a heavier focus really on seafood on poetry and considering the Mediterranean lifestyle. Not folks food elements necessarily. It's being physically active eating your friends and family and enjoying the glass of red wine. So what should you be looking to avoid if you want to fully eating patterns of these Mediterranean? Well you should be looking to avoid processed meats which we've also had leopard on so check back to that as well you want to avoid added sugars in your sodas for example you want to avoid transfats again. We've done an episode on this so such for the database and file trans fats episodes to find out more about that. You should limit you'll refined oils like your soybean oil and canola oil folks more olive oil. You should be wary of a lot of low fat products because these often have added sugars in to substitute a taste to be cautious of this and avoid refined grains like white bread and white pasta but put it into context to make it more visual vivid view. Want my day of eating look like when following a Mediterranean eating pattern lifestyle so it might be X. on toast with Avocado for breakfast. You might have something like Chemo with Bell. Peppers olives and sun dried tomatoes for lunch and for dinner. You could have something like a white fish with some sort of Greens like Kale or Aruba tomorrow. Yeah this is just an idea also chef by any means but I'm sure you've come a lot. That's a combination. Make Ready Flavor. Some helps you get a bachelor idea and if that sounds good to you then obviously Mediterranean. Diet might be something that you consider giving up those foods been for the canal. Royals the and sugars. It could be a lifestyle that better suits you. It's not too restrictive as not eating a certain time when it's not saying completely scrapped out of products for example Vegan Diet. It is more flexible than than certain diets out there. So now we've established What sorts of foods to avoid into eat and Dale Day meal plan might look like let's look at the health benefits and hopefully what from what I've already said? You should be able to understand that cutting out most junk. You're more likely to be taking in less calories unless of course rating series volumes your by following Mediterranean lifestyle. You're eating a balanced diet guessing in your vitamins and minerals from your daily routine badge on your avoiding as I said. Eating too many calories in excess. What else is that? What the study was published in England Journal of Medicine which they run them on trial of the Mediterranean diets for primary prevention of cardiovascular events. So this study. Run the assigned participants who at high cardiovascular risk with no cardiovascular disease at enrollment to one or three diets that was the Mediterranean Diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil. The Mediterranean diet supplements mixed nuts or control diet slaver alleviated by Was to reduce dietary fats and the study had a total of seven thousand. Four hundred forty seven people in it and it found among persons at high cardiovascular risk a Mediterranean diet supplements extra-virgin Virgin Olive oil or nuts reduce the incidence of media cardiovascular events rather than the advice just reduced dietary fat of course as we always say more studies are necessary to determine whether lifestyle factors such as more physical activity or extended support systems are partly responsible for the lower incidence of heart disease and meditating countries than the US but there again are more health benefits. The relationship between the Mediterranean diets and sleep in older adults has also been examined so a sample of one thousand six hundred eighty nine adults aged sixty five years above were tested based on a self report questionnaire when I changed looking at sleep. Duration Annesley quality on the research suggested the adhering to Mediterranean dollars can help improve swiftly quality in older adults but might not effectively quality in younger people as much. The Mediterranean Diet could also be useful for people trying to lose weight as I've touched thumb a systematic review of measuring dot for long term weight loss was conducted on compared the Mediterranean diet to a low fat diet a low carbohydrate Diet and the American Diabetes Association Diet and the Mediterranean Diet resulted in greater weight loss than the low fat diet at around four point in these study but produced similar weight loss as other comparative diets. But of course as I said if you don't want to lend you carve some full of a low carb diet but usually eats whole grains than the the Mediterranean diets may suits. You better really depends what works for you. You don't mind limiting what you what you. Thurmond focusing on but to me. It doesn't sound too restricted at. It's more as I said of a lifestyle. It's not just ate the food. Avoid these foods. It's about being physically active about being preached to give your food. It's about just eating. Organic healthy produce should help you make healthy lifestyle choices else As well so. That concludes today's episode. A twenty minute fitness. I heard this is shed some light on the Mediterranean Diet. And you can now see if you think these lifestyle choices would work for you.

"mediterranean" Discussed on The Zest
"About dessert? Well in Europe. The theme is they have deserved at least once maybe twice a day but it's not like like we deserve. They eat fresh fruit. So they'll have some grapes. They'll have a slice of watermelon. They might have half an apple. The two people split slice. And that's dessert. That's part of their traditional everyday desert. They'll also make something like I put in. Near Blueberry very you know ricotta cheese cake. They will have that for a special occasion. They don't have. It's not a band food thing. It's not like no carbs or or no fat or knowing that this protein there there are no if it's real food it's not banned. It's meant to be enjoyed on occasion. I love that philosophy a yet they save those things for special occasions with people you know so they. It's a fruit is an in a once. Once or twice a day event her dessert and then once in a while on a on a you know Friday evening Sunday afternoon. They'll make a real special dessert like you know a grandma souffle or chocolate Mousse or the cheesecake. I mentioned you know something like that just once in a while just once in a while so when you're speaking with the fishmongers or the market stall proprietors I mean are you speaking to them and their own language. I speak fluent French and Spanish. Oh you do get by in some Italian. It's not great. My Greek is limited. I probably have twenty or thirty words. My Turkish really not so good doll hole. I Won't shame you for that. Having at least two languages really does help so besides English in addition to English now now. Where's your favorite port? Pay Freight favorite port of call yourself about how so many I mean. Take take me with you. Stephen Course. Sailing around Corsica in France was wonderful at a senior is incredible the the food was great. Eight the best food markets. Though were in Spain like Valencia. We spent a week in Valencia on the Mediterranean coast is gorgeous historic town. The market building is like out of Julius Caesar Times. I mean but it's fantastic. They you're tasting everything. They're selling olives olives and pickles and wine and olive oil and dark chocolate and all these things they have you taste before you buy them. I love that so I guess you wouldn't Sale around to the land that would be rougher sailing around literally down the French Atlantic coast around northern Spain around Portugal to dead into into the Mediterranean. Oh that's we started in northern Spain in northern France you bought the boat. They brought the boat in France and then sailed into the Mediterranean then spent a a seven months sailing. Yes so that would have been tough. There's not like an intercoastal waterway that you could've gone just it's open ocean sailing. Yeah wow that's exciting. How big is your boat or did you feed your Catamaran? Nice boat does so. There's kind of a the whole Mediterranean lifestyle though outside I guess absolutely so some of the benefit clearly comes from the nutrients in the food unmistakably mistakenly yet there's other benefits that come from how they live that are clearly make the Mediterranean lifestyle overall and make them return giant. Look good I mean just for an example. They're more active than we are in the. US they walk more. I mean typically they walk to work or bicycle to work or walk to the grocery store every day. We don't really do that. There is a process and whether you're in France or Italy or Spain or Greece people walk in the evening the before or after dinner the whole family goes for a stroll and they might be out want instead of watching a screen. Whether it's their computer television thorughout walking in the community in visiting people so there's social connection with the two and then when they eat their meals are long leisurely. I don't think think we ever had a meal in Europe. In a seven month period. That was under ninety minutes really inao leisurely no way we do that. It's leisurely and it's with people. For example. We had a couple of times workers on the boat mechanic. Or someone you know sailmaker or something. Eighteen and I'm making recipes right and so I'm saying hey. Would you like to try this. And they look at me like well yes. I'd like to try it but I don't have time to sit down for a whole meal now. They don't get they. Don't just take sit and take his standup bite or a snack. Either they sit for a meal and they talked and they communicate or or they don't eat so you know they they don't eat much breakfast. Maybe Coffee Little Fruit Yogurt. Maybe sometimes eggs on the weekend but mostly they have a big lunch and a big dinner right. Well that's I mean it's fun to hear about that kind of lifestyle to learn about it but we're not going to change our culture so we're going to have to adapt. These recipes are quicker lifestyle. We could though adapt in the sense that we eat food out a table bowl with people and not have a television or a computer screen or a phone on and we talk about the food and communicate. So I think that's something we we really should be doing for our health and be more active to being outdoors. You know. They eat food outside more often there with nature more often. I think there's several aspects aspects of a Mediterranean lifestyle that we would benefit if we tried to use more of them and I tried to put that kind of information in the book. I think it would. They have far lower rates. Having designing the pressure may do and I think a lot of it has to do with how they live. There's selling wonderful tips to start off the New Year Dr Steven Massively.

"Us to get but a lot of people feel like they don't know what to do with fish fish you know. Open up a canned tuna fish. Okay but otherwise you go when you go to the grocery store which fish to get. How do I know it's fresh? How now I cook it? It's Scott again on whatever. So what what do we do. So it's usually in Europe. It's what's the freshest there that is the key it's not no one really goes thinking. What am I gonNA? They shop almost every day. So it's usually if you're going to the fishmonger it's what's your best. Freshest fish today would be the question and usually it's usually a woman at the stand when I'm shopping and they're very opinionated and when I asked him and how would you prepare it they tell me that too so writing these things down do right now I I write them down and I do do a little video recordings with with their permission That's part of the when you ask in a restaurant. They have to kill you three times if they talk. If you find out the recipe but the ladies at the market know exactly how L. The local restaurants make it and they're happy to spill the beans and give you how the recipes are made. And then I then I go back to the boat and I practice cooking and that's the beauty beauty of this. If I can make it on a boat come on. You can make these recipes in your kitchen at home. What okay what's in your Galley? I have a little all three gas stoves willpower like butane. And I've got a very small oven. You know like the size of a toaster oven and it doesn't heat eat really well so I got up make use with an questionable boat oven and then I've got a sink drain refrigerator and then are. Are you giving us some of those methods of preparation in this. Yeah that's what the recipes are. These are the ones I collected from port deport in Spain Italy France Turkey Greece from place to place. On what recipes. Did I collect along the way that would be you know insightful. Easy to prepare delicious and really and then how do you make them. You know it's not just about reading a recipe to me. When I'm writing this up for this book doc? It's really more about the process. How do you cook with somebody like olive oil? That's the dominant fat. They use many people. Damage it with high heat. They they I used to I eight so it's learning to cook it. Lower temperature lower heat. Your food actually tastes better. Use a different oil when you cook it. Hi Oh yes absolutely. Oh you should be using like avocado oil or almond oil. If you're going to cook get over four hundred degrees because that's the smoke point that's the point at which you start damaging the extra-virgin olive oil components. So when you damage the olive oil. You're not turning it into like hydrogenated some degree. Yeah you are. Yeah you're we're making making it on your making nasty unhealthy compounds when you damage an oil. You don't want to burn your oil. That's what you're doing when you exceed the smoke point you're burning it. Yes I am doing that up. That's a game a couple different kinds of oil because you want that high so you want to know something you want to see something but that I would say you sit with Avocado oil and then if you could add a little extra virgin olive oil at the end when you simmer it the flavor so and then you take some traditional recipes and you said you lower the The glycemic index. I'm looking at the Spanish Sanish tortilla recipe. which is something I love to make use But you I make it with a lot of potatoes so I would use less potatoes because potatoes again they have they have almost artsy there. They have a very high glycemic load. There is highest brad and table sugar. Oh ooh mashed. Potatoes are actually higher than table. Sugar if you can believe that really yes they melt in your mouth depress you save them for holidays okay and then when you use potatoes. I just use a smaller portion of potatoes and throw in some bell pepper onion John or another vegetable instead for that added texture with your torch Vanish Tortilla. What about sweet potato fries? Oh Uh sweet. Potatoes are definitely better. They have more fiber less vic- McLeod more nutrient good. Because that's my favorite thing in the world all right so better news there there. People are GONNA be starting out the new year with good intentions such as starting to eat a Mediterranean diet. Its ruins died on the planet. Money one overall diet for health for longevity and it's the easiest diet to follow where I was going to ask you I mean. How do you advise people people because people start out with good intentions? You know the the road to hell and then you know. Starting this mashed potatoes advise vice. Them I want people to pick something they can stay with long term. You know the idea of doing a diet for ten twenty or thirty days to me and then what you go back to. What what you were doing and gained all the weight back plus five pounds? That doesn't make any sense. Much smarter would be to say. Why wouldn't I follow the Basque ask Diet for the health of the planet? The food's delicious. The meals are easy to prepare. It's easy I could stick with it and probably my family and in France are going to like it. I mean to me. That's like a no brainer. As to what we should be doing even the World Health Organization has now stating their policy. Let's see is no matter. Where on the planet you live? We should be cringing everyone to follow a Mediterranean Diet. Wow okay well the we need to start practicing cooking fish more. I guess and you can even be vegetarian and follow a Mediterranean Diet and you could do a more low carb version Asia so one of the Nice things. It's so versatile you can modify to meet your food preferences. If you don't feel well eating a lot of carbs than most of your carbs wouldn't come from starchy foods. They would come from vegetable berries beans nuts and you can have a little more protein within and you know so. There's a lot of variety and you could even be purely vegetarian and do really well on a Mediterranean Diet. But then you would miss out on some of the seafood if you're GONNA if you're not eating that much seafood than I would recommend a seafood supplement and I talk about supplements that you need to add or could add to optimize your health to go with this when you said you have a hard time picking a favorite recipe. Because they're like your children but I'm GonNa ask you sure you have as we all do kind of go to go go to rescue. Hardly have to think about it can throw stuff together kind of a recipe. What is it I mean I really love salad new swabs? I've I've always liked it. You know it's just so fantastic the colors the flavors the dressing. What's solid niece was so lettuce with vegetables? Like tomato. Green beans traditionally. It has potatoes. I used battle on this recipe. Instead traditionally it has to Anna. I used used Either I give people choice between sardined little canned sardines or canned pink salmon instead. Why not tuna? Well we'll tuna has a fairly high mercury level and it so you can eat it on occasion but it's not something on. Ask someone to start eating several days a week. It's going to be too much mercury mercury. So wow and they don't eat that much tuna in the Mediterranean tunas like get re runs seasonally. So there's like a week or two of the year when they can catch tuna and and they do and they eat it at that time but it's not like it's you know serving Cantu year round okay so you sardines or salmon. Is that what you I like sardines or salmon with it but I mean there's so many recipes you know there's so many salads soups this the But the salad niece wise. That's let's is that I. I'm thinking that was traditionally with anchovies. You yes it's and it's it's a classic French Mediterranean Iranian Salad dish from niece. Yeah and that's when you like to do it. Seems like an easy one for the boat. Maybe because you don't have to cook anything you don't have to cook anything you open up a boy I met you. May you know Lance Carrots or green beans or something. They're going to go with your vegetables abortion but that's yet so a little bland cheating when you're done. What.

"About your life. You divide your life between Saint Petersburg and Saint Petersburg Florida and you said you sail the the Mediterranean half the time. Tell me about that will to research this book. I committed to spending almost a year sailing around the Mediterranean and going from PORT TO PORT EATING AT LITTLE MON PA cafes and shopping in all the markets and buying food and and and researching why I do people in the Mediterranean lives along. Why do they have such better health? Wire the you know at eighty five and ninety still vibrant and out shopping every day and I it was you know I was. You can't do it from Saint Petersburg Florida as much as a and and I have to admit it was pretty darn appealing to to go to Europe and sail on sail boat from Port to port for basically almost a year. See a living on your sale living on Heftier here at home and then for for the last couple of years for this book half the year on the boat. How'd you get to be such a good sailor? I grew up sailing. I raised competitively as a kid and I had the job for a little bit in college. Summer as a sailboat captain in France. And so you have written. This book called the Mediterranean method. Your complete plan to Harness Ernest power of the healthiest diet on the planet. So we've been hearing about the Mediterranean Diet for long time now. What made you decide that you wanted to write another book about it? Well you're right. I mean since the nineteen fifties with Keys and then you know the in the nineteen nineties there was St St Leonhard study that came out and that really changed my career as a physician in the early one thousand nine hundred ninety s when the first time ever for every twelve people. Oh you had followed the American. Instead of the American Heart Association Diet the Mediterranean Diet You could prevent one heart attack and stroke for every I mean that was like the as is powerful has taken an aspirin more powerful than taking statin cholesterol meds. That kind of helped change. My career is the Mediterranean Diet and he came out saying that that was that good for your heart and then just in the last couple of years. There's been another very large Mediterranean Diet premed out of Spain once again showing if if you follow a low fat diet versus if you're randomized to a Mediterranean diet where we add more olive oil and more nuts you reduce the rate of heart attacks and strokes. They also showed that you had less diabetes less cancer on you're less likely to have memory loss and even your cognitive function improved so I mean we should make it clear. You've written a book with recipes but you are a medical doctor. I started in family medicine but I've been publishing with the American Heart Association and Doing Research Studies since the early one thousand nine hundred fellow right. How hard tell me? I've been how to promote heart health. How to prevent heart disease has been a big part of my background? And I'm you know with the Department of Family Medicine here at USF the The twist that you have in your book is that your. You've got a little bit low carb because when I think of Mediterranean also and I think if Italy I'm being a lot of pasta slot of bread dipped in oil pizza bread. You know French bread those solidify myths. That isn't how people eat every day like in Italy you know. Why talion so much slimmer than us? Yet they pasta him more often than we do. Yes Oh we're on. We're on the verge of reaching the fifty percent obesity rate within the next ten years in the. US towns are much lower than that that they have as an appetizer. A little tiny portion on salad plate and then they have the main course with with vegetables beings protein so when we pasta. It's this huge platter. So we've kind of lost our portion control is it's like the never ending. I always feel we're GONNA get a big bowl of pasta. I'm eat and eat any en eat and I haven't made a dent in so they do give us big ball so in Mediterranean method. You'd be eating three read afford to five bytes pasta if you had pasta and then you'd go on and have the rest of your dinner okay. So you're twist then as you call it is low glycemic to explain what low glycemic blow They've done analyses. Really look at when you eat food. How much does your blood sugar jump after eating of serving food food? That's glycemic load glycemic load blood sugar rise from a serving of food and they've compared all these different foods and they've been able to analyze it and they realize lies that some foods have a lot higher Jump in blood sugar level than others like bread inch table. Sugar are almost the same exact score. Does that mean they have the same effect on. Your Oregon's is on your body eating bread and eating table. Sugar is really the same thing I mean texture texture wise from our perspective. They taste different but they have the same biological impact. Your Body looks at it. And the number one cause for both heart disease and for memory loss and diabetes and aging for that matter is blood sugar control so we really don't want to so it's not cholesterol like we've been thought for years but we realized blood sugars the number one cause for all of these case. So why aren't you outing. The Kito Genyk Diet which which is no carbs and it's because it's nutrient deficient you're GonNa get old before your time it's a short you know the Keno Diet is a great way to lose weight quickly clearly but unfortunately you oftentimes usually gain it all back so you feel like this is a more moderate term or effect. I wouldn't say moderate. This is more reflective when they've looked at one year weight loss studies. A Mediterranean diet was asked. Is the Paleo low. CARB KETO diets for one year ear weight loss. Okay so we've been talking about what not to eat not to eat the bread and the sugar and big big portions of Pasta but a Mediterranean food is delicious. So what are you touting in this book what are the. What are the recipes Promoting well. Let's look at. What's the heart of the Mediterranean? Eating plan you know. We're talking about cuisine. That comes from Spain. France Italy Greece Turkey Northern Africa. And then you know even extends beyond on that to Portugal and other places where there's influence so we're talking vegetable fruit beans nuts olive oils predominant minute cooking oil that we lots of herbs and spices far more than we use especially garlic and Italian herbs and French herbs and things of that sort red wine with a meal red wine in moderation not really much other forms of alcohol a little bit of dairy some poultry. There's this probably mostly sleep free range poultry in contrast to coming from you know factory farm There's not a lot. What do they not have? They don't have preservatives. They don't have have much red meat. They do have whole grains but the when they've done analyses and they looked at the Mediterranean diet grains provided the least benefit of all the components opponents of the Mediterranean Diet. And if you follow do the combination of Mediterranean foods and low glycemic you get. That's the the Best Combo for reducing memory loss for reducing heart disease for extending longevity. So what's your favorite recipe in here. There's only now I want to say. This is not really a cookbook. You explain what the Mediterranean method is. You explain that it's good for your heart. It's good for your memory Utah. You break break down a lot of of methods of how to keep the Mediterranean Diet and then at the back there are fifty fifty recipes. My favorite recipes are in here. So you're asking. What is my favorite child? That's a tough one But no I would maybe the Pie. Because it's I've changed should I can't with the low glycemic version of it so instead of Pie in Europe is usually a- too big a portion of rice and we do it in the US. It's even of course a bigger portion Shanab rice ear so I tried cauliflower rice and it was delicious it cut the cooking time in half so it was quicker to prepare less time. I am Equally delicious and I. I love that recipe because it's so Mediterranean seafood with herbs and spices. The Way Hey it's prepared it's like is simple good quality ingredients put it together and it tastes fantastic. And it's really good for you so I know you are are talking about eating a lot more seafood Which in Florida? We shouldn't be that hard for.

Given that the mediterranean region threats one third of international tourism. It's the most important region when it comes to this into <hes> and i coined this phenomenon has the univision syndrome as you were also sam at the univision. The scandinavian countries north dakota drinks block votes to each other <hes> the central eastern countries of europe would've vote each other but when it comes to the mediterranean the french. Won't you tell you so. It's the same i think what comes to visit <hes> so this got me thinking and the more i thought about what i started to get convinced that something needs to be done about this. <hes> in particular that's given them a as i was thinking about this and they was watching the news in the evening. I started to see that the mediterranean is mentioned in the news everyday but unfortunately for the wrong reasons unfortunately the news media joffe cover the beep drowning in the sea immigration. <hes> terrorist attacks <hes> economic crisis in the mediterranean so unfortunately the mediterranean usually hits the headlines for the wrong reasons when sim time on the other side of the coin the birth a good majority of the people are seeking to spend their vacations in our country's so i said this is some distance michael.

This was something which attracted the attention of his holiness and two weeks later the meeting which seems beautiful letter which was doing gaulish summits earlier on this year so <hes> <hes> <hes> d._v._d. Wants to take what's dispirit. What's do what's the reason why this project is growing so much first of all i think i think it's special <hes> it's especially in the indus project. All the people who are involved directly or indirectly medically have to give to bring people together to get to know new cultures will not afraid of diversity that we are happy. That's why we believe that. Diversity is the beauty <hes> it was <hes> and <hes> and also it's questionable so creating new projects. They'll get it so relevance to the relevant to the businessmen. We're not the shame. We don't wait what else i'm glad to say that we do projects also to earn money <hes> because money is a is an important also variable whole formula yes so bringing people with ideas with resources without with with with with with with opportunities bring them together in the same and create projects and the projects of course we are looking on different initiatives.

Yeah, that's like near their big man, but it's all area. These are like the blue zone. So they live. However, what Mediterrean-style meditating is rich in like healthy plants, lower an atom proteins and barely any dairy and focus on fish. So fish like salmon, trout, muscles, veggies, lentils legumes, whole grains. What about fettuccine? All of these? So Dayrit while we'll thought. So these are the things that are very you consume often. So these herbs and spices nuts in the seats. Okay. Moving on the things that you have more moderately, which are the seafood? I'm sorry, the dairy, the meat and the eggs. That's where you're at comes. Okay. Like you don't see fed a at breakfast, lunch and dinner, Alex. Right. What about the pita? Right? So that's also a human staple a whole grain like, yeah, and they also back to like sensible portions, you go and you travel and you realize that. America. The portions are so much bigger than what they should be, and it's not as gluttonous when you go anywhere else in the world. So so true unless they're attracting American tourists. Yeah, they, they know that's cultural, like America's all about. You have to have more. Yeah, you're not good unless you have more than you had before. And that's why we're looking at like the Mediterranean diet, the Japanese diet, like the northern diet, all of those art, the most simple, the most basic and the most effort of, you know, yes and no think of it this way. Is it an investment in your health now to have like some fish that's maybe five dollars more than maybe some meat or chicken? I don't know. That's a, that's a personal question, but it probably is as long as you don't follow it up with a bag recent -solutely right then here shooting yourself. They're spending a lot of money and not really redoing benefits from. Absolutely. So I think. And then wine is another one of those things. Nobody there is taking shots. Nobody is drinking and binge drinking the Collado right. Well, in the Mediterranean diet, like they're having wine, so so moderately and like actually thoughtfully. They're not just consuming. It's not just like seven, eleven wine, good wine, rank it and enjoy it. And we're also less bowl. So they get drunk faster, maybe being, but also like the density like the nutritional density of the food is so strong like they're having not striving avocados. They're having oily fatty fish. So they're full? Yeah. So maybe they're having a glass of wine because it's even though it's technically lighter than what we'd be having here. It's still it's the healthiest tapes of ingredients. And plus, like if you look at like what it would look like, if you did follow Mediterranean diet, it's not that hard. So like a sample day, which I'd try to do myself sometimes because I actually do feel better. And like in. Other big thing is that it helps stave off Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's is the number one things that happens to Jews time. So so healing. Gene greatest. I know.
