"My uniform that day was just leather shoes my polyester pants the belt the short sleeve button up shirt Name tag and access badge And before the moment of impact I'm in a 72° hallway and immediately after impact I am blown across the quarter set ablaze most of my pants and most of my shirt gone as I struggle to survive I came to that moment that I came to the recognition that I was no longer struggling to survive but it was in fact this is how the lord's calling me into eternity And I did what we in the military are never trying to do and that surrender quit give up collapse the floor and wait to die Thought about melon mat that morning my wife and my son that that morning when I said goodbye just like you know there were in fact Mel and I got the opportunity to meet the widow of the one Secret Service agent that was killed at the World Trade Center that was doing the I guess the pre work that is normally done for presidential and that that was that morning was the last I was going to speak to them until they joined me in eternity and by the large grace that's not what happened I did not decease I did survive the reform in Bill McKinnon Roy Wallace John Davies and carton on block that came out of a B ring door to be ring is the next innermost ring of The Pentagon the 5 rings 8 to E B is the second inside ring And they came out of that door came across me and I'd staggered about 25 30 yards in the condition of being skinned alive There's chunks hanging off of me my face has already beginning to swell shut just like the rocky in the first rocky movie my eyes are already beginning to swell shut but

"Flash. All right, Charlie, thank you so much. We appreciate it. I'm gonna get right to our next guest. Martin Ming junior. He's a former melon bank CEO. And these kind of autobiography and it's just fascinating for good Irish American like myself. It's titled from swamp poodle to Mellon bank CEO and Irish Americans journey. Marty joins us on the phone from the Hamptons. Marty, I love the title, but you gotta tell me what or where is swamp poodle? Well, it certainly is an unusual word. And it's a neighborhood in northern Philadelphia where a lot of Irish immigrants settled in the early 1900s, including my grandparents So it seemed like a good place to start telling my story. And so it is from swamp poodle to melon bank CEO. I thought it was like a golden doodle there for a minute. But Marty, I started reading your book and I started getting chills because let me tell you my own life story. I had great grandparents from donegal and county Mayo, came to America, worked in the coal mines in near Wilkes Barre. Then we ended up in Westchester PA right down the street from where you ended up. So I feel like you and I might need a DNA test or something to sort this all out. But I got to ask you, I know, as a Villanova booster yourself, I think my Philly friends would kill me if I didn't ask you, can you get a right to come back to the team? Do you think? Well, that's a very important question. I wish the answer is that we could. But I think Jay had a wonderful run and he really was ready to move on. But he's created a program and a culture and a tradition now that I think will be carried on and it's not just a basketball program that wins games, but really develops players and is consistent with the community spirit that thrives at Villanova. Hey, Marty, you know, I'm just kind of seeing here, you grew up in Princeton, graduated from Villanova and vulnerable law school. And then you stripped a Marine Corps in Vietnam. Tell us about that experience. Well, I joined the Marine Corps while I was in college. Because they had a program where you went down during summers in college and went through your basic training. And then you were commissioned when you graduated and in my case, I was guaranteed a deferment. So I could go to law school and then serve on active duty. And that seemed to a good way for me to commit to serve my country, but at the same time be able to start my career in a way that was consistent with my planning. And in the Marine Corps, you may know, I mean, they have a saying, every band is a fighting man from the commandant on down. So you have to go through all the same basic training, even if you tend to have or hope to have a basic legal responsibility, but just what I did. And then serving in Vietnam was what all marines were doing during those days when I was active. You know, Marty, I always like to talk to people who have had experiences running a bank because I feel like they have such a unique perspective on the economy and markets, almost like no one else can sort of view from having been in your position. And I'm curious if we're here sitting in an environment with more than 8% inflation, treasury yields going up one day down the next year, stocks in a bear market. What's your sort of read on the economy and how we should think about markets and the whole banking industry and everything in your old Wheelhouse these days? That's a pretty broad question, but let me try to answer it. As far as the economy is concerned, I mean, I think we've had a fairly strong economy for quite a few years now. And then when Congress really stepped up the spending, I think that really is what triggered the first move toward inflation. And then when you have, of course, the war in Ukraine and the energy problems and all the other issues, and then frankly, I think the Fred was fed was very slow in moving to raise interest rates. And so the challenge now looking ahead in my opinion is the fed would love somehow to get what they call a soft landing, which means they contain inflation without causing too much disruption in the economy. But it's been very hard to do both historically and I think in this environment with so many problematic issues that I think it's going to be difficult to do. So my own opinion is I think there's a greater chance for a recession than previously. So maybe it's more likely than less likely. I think going back to the banking part of your question, government regulation has been increasing in the last decade or so. And making it very difficult to compete in an economy where you're not only dealing with non financial institutions that are regulated differently, but you're dealing with competitors on a global basis. So it's a very difficult environment. And of course, you're right. I mean, the banks have to work very hard in the economy as all companies. But still, there are more directly affected. So this is a very difficult environment, I think, for banking. All right, Marty, you're going to stick with us. We're going to come back and chat with you a little bit more. Marty mcguinn, junior, he's a former melon bank CEO, author of from swamp poodle to Mellon bank CEO and Irish Americans journey joining us on the phone from the Hamptons and Marty is coming back.

The Left's Ongoing Indoctrination of Children With Deborah Flora
"I mean, the things that we are projecting onto innocent young children in the name of ideological agendas is inexcusable. You know, some of the students you talked about that we interviewed in our documentary said exactly the opposite, which we know to be true. No child is born a racist. No child is born thinking that someone is better or worse depending on the melon in their skin. That is projected upon them and taught to them. In fact, some of the students that we interviewed that were wonderful in this documentary said, they're losing friends now because they were not even aware of one another's race until it was introduced. So the reality is there's a lot of projection going on. No data to back it up. And you know, I just want to share one story. One of my favorite stories was a young black child and young white child. All it has to do is melon and skin level, where they were probably about 6 years old. And the young toe headed blond boy said he got his hair cut exactly like his friend, who happened to have more melanin because he knew if he did that, his teacher couldn't tell them apart. He did not see color. He simply saw a friend at a human being. Let's face it, CRT is simply the latest permutation of Marx's critical theory critical race theory being the rapper on this one that does one thing. It separates people into groups and pits them against each other. It's time we stop experimenting on our children. Enough is

Cold Laser Therapy: A Health Revelation With Dr. Kirk Gair
"You define cold laser therapy or so. We look at at at cold laser therapy. That means it's non-thermal because there are some lays out there that are thermal. There's some high powered ones that work by heating up the tissue low level lasers. They've been used since the nineteen sixties. And they're really pioneered in the former soviet union where there was so much research by nineteen seventy four that the russians were using them in their state-sponsored Medical care so they're using them for every branch of medicine basically even if it was. Obgyn if it was a oncology neurology orthopedics because they were able to see that it can help people to heal much faster. By the way the laser actually stimulate. Some changes will be called photo biochemical changes so the easiest way to think about lasers. Let's start with plants. Let's look at photosynthesis so you've gotta plants leaf and when sunlight hits the plant's leaf. They will absorb the photons of energy. Sounds like star trek but it absorbs photons and then the plant will convert that into food through photosynthesis so that's one simple way that living organisms can use light in humans when sunlight hits us. We can't make food but we can absorb that energy and make vitamin d that goes throughout the body in order to cause you to me stronger bones or affect the immune system and inflammation or the sunlight can cause you make me Melon for a suntan melatonin for your sleep wake cycles and for some people. They can't even get seasonal affective disorder. Where if they don't get enough light they can get depressed so we know that our bodies are already light reactive now. What happens when we get laser on the skin. You're not gonna make food or vitamin d or a melanin. But you're gonna make some other molecules that have a really powerful impact. One of the primary ones is you're going to make atp which is made in the mitochondria and so you have listeners. Who have autoimmune conditions fibromyalgia. Very common especially in females Where they have issues with their mighty country. The laser supports that by helping it to make extra energy extra.

The Daily Signal Reports Millions of Ballots Were Unaccounted for in 2020 Election
"The daily signal is a highly respected. News operation coming out of the Heritage Foundation. And they just wrote a piece that I think is very, very important. 15 million votes in 2020 election not accounted for, report finds. By Fred Lucas, who is a longtime reporter as well. Almost 15 million mail in ballots were unaccounted for in the 2020 presidential election, and more than a million more ballots were unbelievable, according to a new study. The public interest Legal Foundation, which is headed by a very bright man. You've heard J. Christian Adams before. Released a research brief assessing the effect of mass mail in balloting in an election with a close presidential race in key battleground state. Such as Arizona, George in Wisconsin. Adams, by the way, is a former Litigator in the Department of Justice and the Civil Rights Division Voting section. These figures, detail how the 2020 push to mail voting. Needs to be a one year experiment, J. Christian Adams, president of Public Interest, Legal Foundation, said. Report found that 1.1 million melon ballots were unbelievable for various reasons. Election officials rejected another 560,000 melon ballots. Another 14.7 million mail ballots met an unknown faith, the report says. Holy crap! Joe Biden. Defeated Donald Trump. They right. With an electoral victory of 360 to 32 after winning Arizona Judge of Wisconsin by 320.6% points or less.

Can Gov. Gavin Newsom Keep His Job?
"What i've been thinking about is the california recall. So if you're not from california you can just plug your ears and not just for a little bit but california listeners. I wanna make sure that you are all ready to vote. No on the recall. That's happening on september fourteenth. You can look out for your melon ballads. Everyone should be getting those already again because of covert everyone is able to vote by mail. So you should be getting your balance right away. Course you can decide to go. Vote in person. But why would you do that. Just vote by mail. And i really really want to stress. How important this is because if we don't vote on this recall vote no on the recall. Really this is a republican undemocratic steel of the voice of the people. I don't know if you knew this shayla. But i found out that governor newsom of california he got the greatest share of votes in california history just shy of seventy percent so if we get him recalled your silencing the majority of california voters in one of the most popular elected governors of all history. And he's doing a good job in the la times just reported that in california. Were doing so much. Better than the republican led texas and republican led florida when it comes to delta. of course. we're not out of the woods. Everybody should definitely still be masking and taking care of themselves but we are doing so much better because our governor has been taking decisive actions to make sure that we are masked. Meanwhile over there in florida penalizing superintendents that want to have mask mandates right so we are in so much better shape but we gotta make sure that we keep the governor in

It comes several weeks after Texas House Democrats staged a walkout to defeat bills that would have overhauled the state's election laws. Bell REFORM BORDER security, Social Media censorship are among the priority items. But the elections, voting rights advocates in Texas and nationwide or laser focused on the election. Security bills. League of Women voters, Texas President Gracia Mean says The GOP led voting bills create more barriers for voters who are already disenfranchised, but says the fact that Republicans walked back. Some of the proposal is a start. My hope is that people in power in the Legislature, especially in the house, or more thoughtful about every aspect of that bill, Although there are some changes, Shamin urges Texans to pay attention So many people voted in their 2020 elections. We all enjoy our freedom to vote and we have to really Watch and be careful that this new voting log doesn't impact our freedom to vote. Republican consulted Matt Macau YAK ways In In this case, you're going to have a major national debate in Texas on election integrity. From July 8th to August eight. It is going to be a circus, and I think Texas should be aware of that, and I wouldn't rely on rhetoric. I looked at the actual bill what it actually does, whether there was a problem at all everyone becomes their own conclusion, but it supports the Texas understand what this law does and what it doesn't do. So what is in the revised bills lives in a governor Dan Patrick says the new version of Senate Bill seven won't revive changes to Sunday voting or wording that would have made it easier for judges to overturn elections. The Texas House election bill posted Wednesday night had many similar provisions to SB seven. The bill would ban drive through voting and require early voting to happen between six a.m. and 10 p.m.. It will require counties with at least 55,000 people to hold the most early voting hours, which would cover more counties than the current 100,000 per person floor for those hours. The bill has some ID requirements for melon voting,
Cindy Crawford Opens Up About Leaving Revlon to Start Her Own Brand
"Had been with revlon for seventeen years and my contract was getting ready to be renewed and i did have that moment of life. Okay like i kind of think. It's time for me to do my own thing and i think having success of my exercise video gave me the confidence to feel like i can do my own thing and then really it was. I had this relationship with dr saba that another makeup artist friend of mine. Fran cooper sent me to dr sabella. When i was twenty eight when i was imperative. You gotta see this guy. Does this slight mess of mesotherapy in like a vitamin cocktail. He called it. And i just develop this relationship with him and i and he you know he was like my skin guy my skin guru and i would tease him like. Can't you just bottle this stuff. Just deposits like mesotherapy disbar listeners. Can you just get expel in crayon for everyone okay. So that he's the only person who's ever done it to me. And i have never had it before But it looks like a squirt gun but actually has like a little needle in it and so he likes makes these like tiny almost like rating your skin. Okay man his vitamin cocktail which included the special s. O d which is from a melon special melon. At the france Was in was in that. And and it's funny because the first time he did it to me. I actually was getting married like five days later. Random wage and my skin. I like like my skin came alive. I didn't even. i didn't even know that. Looked tired until he got done. And then i was like wow it's so like glory and bouncy and all those things i mean i was twenty eight so bad skin. Day twenty eight is a good skid day. But i just i really thing i really loved about dr shabazz. He loves women. He doesn't want women to have to hide behind makeup. He wants you to feel comfortable in your skin. So he's all about like how do you know. How do we take care of your skin. And so the and so he's like the first thing he does. I think he would do is like he touches it pinches it he pulls on it and he wants you to feel good on your

"So then when it's broken down. What i like to do is i With honeydew and cantaloupe. I use a four court delhi container with watermelon. I eight cup deli container. Essentially i bought these about a year ago and they have revolutionized the food storage in my kitchen. It is essentially a deli container so like the plastic deli containers. You and i love only. it's an eight cups so it's two courts and It's sort of like a deli container. That's been stretched sideways. So it has twice the circumference And they're great because they're really durable stack in the fridge. Really well they hold a lot And by pushing the melon out into into containers where you're like okay. This will last day and a half. You don't have to keep opening. it's like you have some not getting opened on a regular basis so it's going to hold its quality better because it's not coming out of the fridge 'cause i used to like put up my my put my cut mellon in one big container and then it's like i take it out. It would sit out for half an hour. I put back in the fridge and to have all of your melon. In one container it starts to degrade keep portion it into small containers. Just pull out what you need and leave the rest in the fridge and to be clear. The smaller container is a cup storage container. Her watermelon my guy. Can you make a watermelon. It is a lot for other melons to four cup of your results may vary in terms of how much your household can eat. But once i cut up melon. It fills two to three eight cups storage containers. I think of that eight cups a day serving between the boys and i. We can go through eight cups of watermelon without even blinking. Wow i'm gonna look at those containers you know. We love our storage containers. Call house there. So they're great I can't believe i've talked about them before Canadians watermelon question. Though before gone from watermelon seeded seedless or do not care. I prefer a seedless. I know that people say that seated watermelons have a lot more flavor But i don't find that. They have so much more flavor that i'm willing to deal with. All the seeds can especially now with toddlers choking hazard choking hazard. I don't wanna be painstakingly cutting around every seat for them so whenever possible. I by Seedless watermelon most of this most of the summer. What i do is like once or twice a week. I'll go to trader joe's and by one of their they are costing four ninety nine now. They used to be like two ninety nine but food. Prices have really gone up and so by four ninety nine watermelon and an. It's funny 'cause i'll have this like oh my gosh. That's so expensive. And then i think will if i were to buy a court of pre-prepared watermelon from a grocery store that would be the court amount would six ninety nine. Yeah i get. I can get four to five quarts from single watermelon and then it shows. Is it really very nicely. that's true. Sometimes i have accidentally purchased a seated one mellon and then. I already told you how annoyed i am. And having to cut up a watermelon so in those cases i often just turn them into watermelon juice. But once you've done that underrated and super delicious. Oh god with a yeah watermelon in the blender with a little bit of lime juice so good yes ice cold yum yet Well that's something that we love to talk about else your loving this week. Sure so i. My family had their first in person gathering last weekend. We had so nice. It was so good a brench potluck at my cousin's house and my cousin winnie ordered. This big smoked fish trey and one in my family. We cannot order just enough food and no one can just order what we need. There's almost always double the amount of food that is required. I think like any family event that i've ever been to is been true. It may have another cousin who married in and it makes her crazy. 'cause she's very much of the. Let's just have enough. The the overabundance makes her little insane. But that's okay So i ended up bringing home a bunch of smoked fish and one of the things that i've really been enjoying that. I don't think it's enough. Love in the world is what is technically. Like officially known as kipper d- salmon. It is hot smoked salmon. It's so it's different from a like a locks or nova. It's not the kind of shiny greasy. Sammy sammy i mean and i say that with love in my heart. I love I love locks. I love nova but this is more. It's slices if you had gotten a big fillet and it has the skin on it. And it's sort of adult color as apoe like doesn't shine so almost looks like poached salmon but hot smoked so just rich and smokey and so delicious and it's a kind of salmon. Where if you make a pasta dish and you want to just you know. Add some little thing. You can crumble up. Some of this hot smoked salmon tossed three or pasta It just delicious. And i have really been enjoying those leftovers and it just made me remember how much i appreciate it. Enjoy the world of smoked fish. And so i feel like this is going to be my summer of treating myself to little bits of smoked fish because so land. Do you have smoked fish. Purveyor in your neighborhood. I guess bruno's do it. Debris knows has some And it's like they. They have quite a bit actually in. It's one of those things that i always overlook and like. Oh those are just you know pieces of smoked fish. Lemme turkey for sandwiches. And i need to really explore their smoke Fish selection better this year. I have you been to beat herman's which is I think they are really smoked. Fish specialists in the italian markets. It's like an appetizing shop in the spirit of it yet. But i'm really looking forward to going down there. You should take a trip I haven't been. But i've heard it's fantastic. We included it in a recent issue of edible philly. Oh yeah oh that's exciting. I will definitely check it out i. It's funny how far the italian market feels now. Yeah i guess you'd have to drive with your babies until i guess it would be a very long walk. It would be a very long walk. I'll get there someday. Put it on the list the summer wishlist. I will. Maybe i can slip away and go by myself. That'd be the best thing and I think that about does it for this episode of local mouthful. Our thanks go out to dan. call for editing..

"Mixed the the way you would mix ingredients on its head but it really doesn't impact the quality the muffins. So what i do. Is i start by putting my oats in the blender. The recipe's a cup of flour. So i use one and a quarter cup of rolled oats and assume. That's gotten me close enough. Then once they're pulverized into flour had the baking soda baking powder salt and cinnamon. So i've mixed. I just pulse that until their combat and then to those dry ingredients i throw in three the ripe bananas a third of a cup of maple syrup two eggs and a quarter of neutral and then sharana. It's all mixed. Sometimes i have to stop and scrape the sides down but that takes you know seconds and then it's done and so the whole thing takes five minutes from start to finish to put together and then bef- you know i lightly oil twelve cup muffin. Ten just you know standard one. I don't use paper liners because that always feels wasteful and as long as you oil sufficiently. They pop right out. I divide the batter in between those twelve muffin cups. I bake it at three hundred fifty degrees for like fifteen to eighteen minutes and they're done and they're delicious. The the only thing i would say is that because there's a little bit of air in the batter from pure eing they rise and fall a little bit more than perhaps a just a hand whisked muffin might so you can tap the blender a couple of times to try to release some of the or once you portioned into the muffin. Tin tap the pan a couple times to try.

"We're talking about doll. Banana haute blender muffins and melon. But first let's compare notes on something. We read this week. Marie so what are you got so I was poking around the internet and came across this story. Which i thought was really interesting. That the smithsonian is hiring a permanent curator food and wine history Didn't work at the national museum of american history and really will have their focus on collecting food and wine history and researching it and putting it on exhibition for the general public. And i thought those first of all. I was like wait. They don't have someone already because you know they have all of these food. Centric exhibitions and programs I know that they have a demonstration. Kitchen that many of our fellow food writers and You know people in our community have done events that and at the same time i thought how fascinating that That this is you know that this is an area that deserves a person like i was both surprised that they didn't have. It also surprised that it was happening. You know that might sound silly. But you know what i mean. I do and i felt like on the surface. It was really a feel good story about a topic that we really care about. But as always you know stories that involve wine and like big profitable wind. Businesses like the winery. That's funding this position. yeah. I sort of want to follow the money And i notice that they mentioned the mission of this was restoring wine. To pre the pre prohibition esteem at once enjoyed and so i popped out at me to automate the i just felt like this was another one of you know a trillion ways at the alcohol industry props up wine to make it classy and intellectual and most perniciously of all like thai inextricably eater food which was huge stumbling block for me like i really felt like i couldn't stop drinking wine and continue to be like a food maniac. Um yes and it's just not true. And then of course. I started to think about a who's who funds food and wine and like i don't have the the publication which is where we read this article. I don't have the financials there. But having worked in food media. Like i would not be surprised if a substantial portion of their ad revenue came from boost companies and then of course. I don't know if you and maybe it's different for everybody. But this the stories that the algorithm was like recommending to me beneath the story they were hard seltzer and other ready to drink. Beverages will surpass wine and alcohol to go. We'll be sticking around. So i don't know i had decidedly mixed feelings about this. Yeah i agree i am. Hopefully they'll be some capacity to separate the role from the funding. But perhaps not. yeah. I mean a good. This applies to everything. But for me i have a lot of practice doing it when it comes to food and wine issues but like if you follow the money you find out what the agenda is true. Anyway we'll share this article with everyone and I'm sure there's gonna be a lot of great scholarship a lot of interesting food history shared. I would definitely visit food related exhibits if i went to dc some day again. When i'm traveling more places But i just wanted to point that out. It's like one of those things like sort of goes under the radar but really shapes how we view wine alcohol and how we view the relationship between food and alcohol you know just a reminder. Alcohol is not a nutrient. it's not a food it You know his first and foremost a drug so anyway. If you really wanna know what i think about it there you have it. Feel free to disagree in the comments section for this Episode absolutely I mean i mind gives me a headache almost instantaneously. So i don't really drink it so well you know there. There's a reason for that. It's not a health drink juice. i know anyway. Let's move on to what's for dinner. Yes what have you been cooking lately this week. I made the todd kc from a book we've discussed on this podcast before the indian family kitchen Which is just a delightful book of recipes. That mix of traditional indian dishes with more modern twists You know as you would expect from indian woman who has been living in america Cooking for an american family but my relationship dishes evolved a little bit. You know the basic of a doll is you cook the lentils until they're you know deliciously soft and almost porridge like and then you make this Todd co which is a spice infused oil or ghee. It goes by many names Another frequently used name is chunk Which is why pre. Krishna calls it in her book. What's her book called indian ish right and I basically refer to three places when i making doll. Which is the indian family kitchen India nash and melissa clark has a pretty good section doll in her book. dinner game so i don't make this recipe always exactly the way it's written but it does a couple of things a little differently than some recipes that i wanna shout out as being especially good and one is it includes like all the includes like Quartered grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes at the end which brings like lots of delicious freshness to it it also suggests adding greens which i like is a way to get kind of a one pot meal that includes greens and the end when you're frying the seasonings. And the of course i use oil instead of doll You're not just doing dried spices. You do Garlic and chili and ginger as well. an onion green onion. If you have it. I didn't have it so i was. I used some regular onion. And i definitely sort of mixed up the spices At preah krishna's instruction. I add a little bit of that A fetid oh Which is it's a little hard describe. It has a strong smell. That is unpleasant to some or especially if you put your nose right in the jar. It adds savory nece you could it has some properties in common with garlic powder. I might say like But it does make a big difference. I find and I got curry leaves at some point. A lot of them. And i put them in the freezer. So i add those two good. Yeah and every time mcdowell. I say to myself. Why don't i make this every week. It's so delicious. Nutritious easy you know..

I asked them whether they what they thought the strengths limitations of that approach was everybody loved it and they said you know. These facts aren't so important to me to know right.

I think skill motor learning is absolutely fascinating I don't know how skilled motor learning for example for a violinist with really working on their position. Their digits right very fine motor skill might be equivalent to Motor learning for a long jumper for example and track and field You know it seems as though both of those are skills that have to be learned. Both of them involve motor control But it's not clear that a violinist who's learned how to manipulate all their digits independently is gonna learn how to do the long jump and better than somebody who has either played the violin nor done a long jump.

Podcast providing unscripted conversations with leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. If you like to sponsor this podcast please reach out to info. At scientific sense dot com. So that is in your back. You're talking about the prayed. How the universe circuits cage by expedience by the Hope the memories for a hobby. We stolen cleave memories I want to go back to the paper and touch. On one eighty year motto learning and sequence of circuit changes. His learning has been our forbade to identify sequence of synoptic changes that occurred in inhibitory circuits to facilitate subsequent city so motor training meeting some sort of physical movement right. Yeah typically what's done. Is they train an animal and a reach task so it has to reach through a little slit to grab something like a see then. They animal really likes the seeds. And so it has to maneuver. It's paw through slit in a coordinated way in order to pick up the seat to eat it and so so experiment. What what what. what did you find. So these are. In our experiments. These are done by a number of different groups. Actually ed. because it's been a very powerful way to visualize changes in synapses and neural circuits in the brain motor. Cortex happens to be in a really easy place for imaging and so you can build a tiny little window on the brain and watch what's happened to synapses as the animals learning. So what you see. Is that As the animal is learning this reach task you can see new synapses forming and you can see a reduction in inhibitory synapses in so desert sleigh. Didn't do i'm just looking at more. Broadly the processes that find detention. They didn't do other skills in the great well. Interestingly enough in these kind of motor tasks when you train the animal and a different motor tasks. So there's a task called the vermicelli task. You give you give the the animal like a piece of the getting and they the mice will eat spaghetti. Jerry happily dried spaghetti and the way that they do it if they put their little pause hand over hand over hand to eat that spaghetti right so they're sort of slowly moving it up and they're moving their hands interleaving or hands to to move that getty up and that's a coordinated movement as well. It seems as though synapses that you add add when you do this reach tasks are not the same ones that you add when you learn how to do this vermicelli eating task so it seems as though you know there's a lot of space to learn different types of tasks different motor tasks and probably also different sensory tasks as well and they can all over in the same space you need data That shows any sort of correlation between people who have good at sports and alzheimer's. I have no idea. I think exercise can promote neurogenesis in the hippocampus. Just one of the few parts of the brain where neurons are born throughout the lifespan and it turns out that if you exercise regularly the level of neurogenesis that you have in your hippocampus is much higher now that is associated with better memory and so i think in that sense absolutely..

"And punishment and those powerful ways to to reshape neural circuits. And some of those directly translate into specific types of neurotransmitters that are released a very precise times. When there's a sort of a contingent stimulus you know if you do this correctly and it's rewarding and that reward itself starts to reorganize neural circuits so to the end. Wineman has a huge role to play the right I think so I would say that the reward signal is is very important. And i think there's probably some developmental regulation to this that depending upon the age you're at your punishments and rewards may have maybe more or less powerful in terms of reshaping your your brain. Yeah so. I knew that you do not work in this area in terms of sort of the cheek just in the new circuit so is one such a situation rate. Great you have a severe trauma and the brain.

You don't need to repeat them over and over again to see that they are are immediately reflected in a change in the animal's behavior or and our behavior. Those kinds of emotional memories especially with ear are very strongly encoded. Neural circuits and very durable uncoated neural circuits. And there's a lot of evidence that says Even if you can suppress that response you can override. It minute. that stimulus comes back. It can actually be reinstated as if it was never had was never gone and so people are very interested in how to understand how to harness the mechanisms molecular mechanisms. Synoptic plasticity perhaps be able to erase negative memories or maladaptive memories.

This health assessment is not just like your thirty minute. Most when i sat down with this health assessment on every every single system questions in every single system of the body easily two hours easily two hours. If not a little bit more we see as we uncover on cover on cover and from that then i can see where i i want to go. I also worked with botanical heard as the herbs also helped to strengthen the areas of the body And with the era if if they they they want that to then what i need is a clear picture so there is even on youtube as a way that you can take a picture with your just with your cell phone and get a clear picture of the irish and then i can take a picture of the iris and go home with my mocking chance.

Changes to voting laws across the United States
"We have all just lived through an election in which the way many of us voted changed. A lot of Americans voted early in 2020. A lot of Americans voted by mail because of the pandemic. Now across the country, state lawmakers are weighing what our election should look like going forward. Hundreds of bills have been proposed that would restrict voting access. Hundreds of others would expand access, and this is mostly happening along party lines. Republican led states are broadly looking to add voting restrictions, while many Democratic legislatures are exploring expanding access. Well, we have got reporters. From three states with us to give us a glimpse of what is going on in there. Patch. Let me welcome Been Giles from Cage's in Phoenix. Katarina so historic from Iowa Public Radio and Anthony Brooks of W bur in Boston. Welcome all three of your primary Louise. Then I'm gonna let you start. Let's go to Arizona, which along with Georgia are maybe the state getting the most attention. Those two certainly at both swing states, both with total GOP control at the state level and all kinds of bills. That have been proposed. What what is standing out to you in Arizona? So the biggest proposed changes I see are two what's called Arizona's permanent early voting list. That's our super popular mail ballot system. That a clear majority of voters here use and have increasingly been using in years and years and years. So not new in 2020 is what you're saying. Definitely not new. No, This is a very long standing system here. You sign up for it, and you regularly get sent your ballot, So one change would make it to that. That's not permanent anymore. If you don't actually use the early ballot, you get sent before an election for two straight election cycles. You get a notice that you're getting kicked off the list, and you have to respond to that if you don't want to be removed. Democrats here say there were 126,000 voters in that situation who cast about in 2020 after not voting in 2016 or 2018, Arizona's, of course, very competitive state now so That margin. You know, 126,000 voters could matter. There's also another bill that would shrink the amount of time voters have to cast that early ballot and then new voter I d requirements when you mailed about back or being considered Catarina is any of this sounding familiar. Let's talk about what's going on in Iowa, another Republican controlled state. New restrictions have already been signed into law here. The governor did that on Monday. Ah big changes that early in person Voting and absentee voting will start 20 days before Election Day instead of 29. It was 40 days just four years ago and then deadlines for requesting a melon ballot has been moved up and those ballots have to be returned earlier, so it's really shrinking that time frame. Then in person. Polls will close at eight p.m. instead of nine PM, as they had been before for state and federal elections. Okay. And why do supporters of these changes who we should note are overwhelmingly Republican. Why did they say this is needed? Unlike in Arizona, where Democrats one big races, Republicans in Iowa one pretty much everything and retained full control of the state government. But they have said that these changes are going to help restore Iowans confidence and trust in elections. Here's representative Bobby Kaufman, speaking about the new law. This protects Iowans right to vote, and it adds certainty and security to it. This bill does not suppress one single vote. Of course, we should say that it was Republicans themselves, who created this distrust by questioning election results with false claims of widespread voter fraud. This is something these false claims have been repeated in debates in Iowa over the selection bill, and I'd also add that a lawsuit challenging these changes have already been filed. Mary Louise. I'm hearing similar claims from Republicans in Arizona, broadly speaking there, justifying these bills by arguing that voter confidence and the election must be restored. They don't acknowledge that some of them are responsible for sewing that distrust in the first place. Democrats are quick to point that out and are lining up in opposition to these bills. Here's Senator Martine Cassata, speaking about the voter. I d legislation. We hear communities tell us That this will hurt my community, my neighborhood, my vote and the people that look like me and the people that vote like me. This is going to hurt us. Okay, so a taste of the conversation under way there in Arizona and in Iowa, Anthony Brooks. Let's turn to Massachusetts, where you have got a very different story unfolding. Yeah, It's really different. Mary Louise Esso last summer. Here's a bit of background because of the pandemic, Lawmakers approved a temporary vote by mail law and as in other states, Massachusetts saw ah huge jump in voter turnout in the presidential primary and general election with with relatively few problems. So now there's a push by Democrats who control the state legislature by big numbers. To make vote by mail permanent. So here's Bill Galvin, the Democratic secretary of state, who's a big proponent of this last year test of us in many ways, it was a very challenging year. But at the same time he showed us what we could do. And I think the result was is that we had a very successful election cycle on. We want to make sure that progress is not lost. Is this controversial in Massachusetts are Republicans. They're fired up in opposition and saying similar things as we were hearing from Republicans and other states. Well, there are concerns. I mean, one concern is that any law to make mail in voting permanent will have to include significant new funding for cities in town clerks to do training and to process the big increase in mail. Balance. But in terms of pushback, Republicans have questioned why mail in voting is necessary now that it appears that the pandemic is lessening with vaccines being distributed. But even the moderate Republican governor, Charlie Baker, has said that he would favor making the law permanent. So I think chances are very good. That vote by mail is going to become permanent in Massachusetts and in the months ahead. I do want to know this debate is playing out at the national level, of course, as well. Big Fight looming in Congress over HR one. This huge bill, backed by Democrats that would expand voting access would curtail Jerry Mandarin would have something to say about some of these changes that are being proposed in at the state level and just quick lightning round for each of you. Maybe Anthony you first. How how much attention is HR one getting is this part of the conversation in Massachusetts? It's part of the conversation because our congressional delegation is all Democratic. It's very much behind HR one. But my sense is that no matter what happens in Washington, Massachusetts move toward a permanent Vote by mail legislation is coming, no matter what and Banner, Catarina, where you're so in Arizona, I think Democrats are going to make a big push for our U. S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kirsten Cinema. Get HR one through to undo a lot of what's happening at the state level. That means there's gonna be pressure on cinema to abolish the filibuster. If that's what it takes, because HR one might be the only way to get around some of this state laws that Republicans are certainly gonna pass here and are expected to be signed into law by the governor. And in Iowa Republicans are going to be more focused on this pending lawsuit that they
No Stupid Questions
How Does When You Are Born Affect Who You Are?
"Does when you were born affect who you are in my econometrics class or talking about instrumental variables and one thing. That has come up. Is that while you may think that the time of year someone is born is a great random variable that can be used to make more robust estimates. It turns out that when the year you were born is actually correlated with things like parents income or mental health outcomes. Is it true that people born at different times of the year different does this mean. Horoscopes are in fact valid. Thanks alkaline so the way. I would think about this. Is there at least two major dimensions. One is that the time of year born or more broadly. The year you're born in what's going on in the world then may have some natural ish effect but then there's a very different dimension which is how the time you were born again. What's going on in the world where the environment can change your outcome. And that gets even more complicated. Because then we're talking about parental behavior and that parental behavior may be pre or postnatal. And so on. I don't know how much your parents or your family care about. The traditional chinese zodiac. But i am curious. What sign you were born under and how it's influenced your life. I am the year of the dog and everybody has good things to say about their year but the year to be is apparently the year of the dragon. I'm not a dragon so my parents. I'm quite sure did not plan my birth around the lunar calender. That's fairly because i'm told by my sister that i wasn't planned at all boy. Okay i'm not going to get into that but it seems as though there are quite a few chinese and chinese american parents who do delay birth to the year of the dragon. Yes because there's a spike in births. Among certain communities across the globe during that year. I find this research on the year of birth according to lunar calendar in cultures that really respect that mind blowing. I remember when my grandmother passed away. This is my mother's mother. Apparently they had to wait for a lucky day to bury her and that was months away so they they waited. Wow there's also some research suggesting that in addition to the decisions like to have a child or one to have funeral that actually life outcomes can be influence because of parents expectations and amount. They invest in their children's education etcetera. But i do know that. Children born in the year of the dragon to chinese or chinese american families that they do get more education. They have better lifetime outcomes than non dragging your children. We did do an episode about this years ago with freakonomics radio but according to that research it is on the parents guide which is basically once. You've got a dragon in the family. You invest a lot in that kid. Is that your understanding. That is my understanding if you are living in a culture where someone says hey. This is the lucky year. And then you're lucky enough to be having a kid that year. Then maybe when you're making decisions about whether one is gonna get extra tutoring give it to the lucky kid right because you know there are dragon but also would there be a little bit of something like endowment effect there like this. Is the child that we created on our timetable and therefore we feel a little bit more invested in this one not so much because they might be lucky because this is how we planned. Oh absolutely. I don't think it's necessarily that you give the child. The extra tutoring because you think the child is luckier. But because their dragons and they're going to do more with that tutoring the research that it made me think about is in psychology and it was by bob. Rosenthal have you heard of the pygmalion effect. Yes my fair lady. Yeah probably more people have heard of my fair lady than teak malian or the pig melon effect but the original play was called pygmalion and that was of course after the greek myth that pygmalion created a statue. That was so beautiful that he fell in love with it. But the plot of my fair lady. You have elisa doolittle who needs to get rid of one lower class british accent. In order to acquire a higher class british accent. And the reason. I bring this up. And the reason why the psychological research was called the two million. It's just that the expectations. Not only that you have for yourself right. Not only eliza doolittle's expectations for herself. But actually henry higgins her teacher his expectations for her. We're going to put the thumb on the scale of her destiny and if he thought that she was going to do great maybe he would act in ways. That would actually make that prophecy. Come true so. These are behavioral components and belief and preference components. Let's go back for second to the biology question. I don't know much about this. I've done a little reading. I'm curious to know if you know more but in terms of biology the month of year that you're born to the season that you're born. I have seen some arguments that to me. Look between week and mixed that there is a strong effect. I read one piece. For instance argued that babies born in the spring are more prone to optimism but also more prone to depression. And i realize they're not polar opposites necessarily but it does make me feel like some of this thinking may be like i said somewhere between week and mixed but i'm not ready to dismiss it in part because there's been so much interesting science in the last ten twenty years on circadian rhythms and how real they are. According to time of day so month of year might also have similar effects. I'm curious if you know or think anything about that. I know very little but it would be hard for me to believe that the time of year that you're born which of course has its own particular is for how long the days were versus the nights and also by the way other things like the availability of nutrients vegetables being in or out of season of course less relevant these days because we can get our strawberries year round but i wouldn't be surprised if any of these effects were huge. I can maybe imagine a small with tranquilly but nothing large because there's so many other things that would swamp the effect of you know it was a six hour daylight day versus an eight hour daylight

Do Produce-Saver Products Really Keep Food Fresh Longer?
"My friend gary rights. I've been seeing ads for products that claim to absorb ethylene which allows produce to last longer to these products. Work would baking soda or activated charcoal. Do the same thing. I think we've all had the disheartening experience of having to throw away expensive fruits and vegetables because we didn't use them up quickly enough. No one likes to waste money of course but there's even more at stake with food waste we throw away. Shocking percentage of the food that we produce which is especially tragic when you consider how many people around the world experience hunger on a daily basis hunger and food. Insecurity is not just an issue in developing nations here in the united states the richest nation in the world within ten percent of households typically struggle to put food on the table and that number has increased by sixty six percent just since the beginning of the covid nineteen pandemic right now. Fifty million americans including seventeen million children do not have enough to eat on a regular basis. No matter where you live if you are lucky enough as i have been to have weathered this year long crisis without worrying about whether you'd be able to feed yourself and your family. Perhaps you will join me in donating to your local food bank or an organization like feeding america dot org. And if you or someone you know is experiencing hunger or food insecurity. You don't have to go it alone if you are in the. Us feeding america dot org can help. Connect you with resources in your area. Food waste is also a major player in climate change. Rotting food is responsible for almost ten percent of greenhouse gas emissions globally. In fact if oud waste were country it would come in third after the united states and china in terms of impact on global warming and fresh produce about a third of all the food that we throw away all of which is to say if a ten dollar product can keep us from throwing away so much food it would be money well spent and i'm happy to report that there is some solid science to support them but their usefulness maybe just a bit more targeted than the marketing sometimes suggests ethylene is a harmless gas. That's released or exhaled if you will buy fruits and vegetables. In general ethylene. Production increases as fruits ripen. And turn accelerates the ripening process so when we put unripe fruit in paper bag the idea is to trap some of that ethylene. That's being given off by the produce and use it to hasten the ripening process this works especially well for apricots bananas mangoes tomatoes avocados and melons. They're all particularly sensitive to ethylene gas. But once fruit is ripe continued exposure to ethylene can cause the fruit to become overripe and start to rot. Ethylene can also speed the decline of other types of produce according to horticultural scientist kathleen brown of penn state university at the lean can cause carrots and parsnips to get bitter broccoli and kale to turn yellow cucumbers and summer squash to get soft and mushy asparagus to turn tough apples to get mealie and lettuce to wilt herbs such as parsley and mint are also particularly sensitive to ethylene gas now low temperatures across the board reduce plants sensitivity to at the lane so just keeping produce refrigerated will help to preserve it for example if your avocados get ripe before you need them. You can hold them for a few days by putting them in the fridge. I find it most effective to move them into the fridge when they're still maybe a day short of fully ripe because some ripening will continue in the fridge but it goes much more slowly in addition you can use something to absorb ethylene gas. Today's episode supported by hair food. Hair food believes in feeding your hair like you. Feed your body with simple clean and nourishing ingredients it. Produces the softest and silk strands.

So if you wanna feed your hair. Delicious nourishing ingredients feed it hair food. All their products are under ten dollars. And you can find them at amazon walmart and zeolite is a complex of minerals including aluminum and silica. That's highly absorbent. It's used as drying agent to suck moisture out of the air. This is also the stuff that makes clumping cat litter work but it also absorbs ethylene. Gas zero lights are widely used by food growers shippers and retailers to extend the life of fruits and vegetables in transit by slowing down the ripening process produce saving products that you may have seen in the consumer marketplace such as the green produce bags or the hollow ball. That you place in the crisper drawer of your fridge contain zeolite. And they are effective at absorbing lean and they can prevent types of spoilage. The bags are reusable but they do eventually lose their effectiveness. You can also buy a rechargeable zeolite filled ball to place in your crisper drawer to absorb ethylene gas now. Gary also asked whether baking soda or activated charcoal might be effective at absorbing ethylene. I can't find any data to suggest that baking soda would be particularly useful here. Activated charcoal can absorb but not nearly as effectively as zeolite. Interestingly that rechargeable ball. it's called the blue. Apple contains both zeolite and activated charcoal but the manufacturer only talks about charcoal in their marketing. I wonder if they think that charcoal sounds more natural and therefore would be more appealing to consumers than something unfamiliar like zeolite but in terms of absorbing ethylene gas. I suspect it's the zeolite that's actually doing. The heavy lifting their the chuckle may also have some odor absorbing properties. Keeping your produce in special ethylene absorbing bags may indeed extend the shelf life. Keeping high at the lean producers particularly apples and avocados quarantined from your other produce can also help just remember that ethylene is only one thing that can shorten the life of your produce and ethylene absorbing bag isn't gonna prevent moldy berries or slimy lettuce for example. The best way to keep fruits and vegetables from going bad and going to waste is really to eat them up
Duchess of Sussex wins High court case against The Mail on Sunday
"Be big news for the duchess of sussex this week. Who won her privacy and copyright case against the mail on sunday a summary judgment at the high court in london this week ruled in favor of megan extra extracts of the letter that she had written to estranged father thomas markle. This was a much anticipated. Win for mega This has been going on for two years now. In fact it was two years ago that the men sunday i ran a melons. Animal line ran five stories online and in that paper featuring extensive extracts from this very private letter written father the duchess of sussex The hailed victory is a comprehensive win and went onto cole out newspapers and legal and dehumanizing practices as i said it's been a two year battle but this saw the judge bronze summary judgment in her favor over those extracts being published. He called them passing on privates. Despite the arguments put forward by the defendant in fact lord justice will be found for meghan and claim for misuse of private information against associated newspapers. And he said it was in short a pass on private letter the majority of what was published was about the claimant's own behavior have feelings of anguish about her fondness behavior as she saw it and the resulting rift between them. These are inherently private and personal matters. It's a huge win to mega. And i would also say for the royal family. Because i think that had the male have won this case it would have set a dangerous precedent over What could be argued to be within the public's interest and acceptable for publication. But this does the power back into the copyright holders hands and i think we saw from that statement put out by the duchess of sussex cleanly. She was very happy with the win.

The Book Review
Kerri Greenidge discusses two books about African-Americans in the years before the Civil War
"Carey. Greenwich joins us now from outside boston. She is the melon assistant professor in the department of studies in race colonialism and diaspora at tufts university. She's also the author of black radical. The life and times. Of william monroe. Trotter and this week she reviews two bucks on the cover of the book review. They are south to freedom runaway slaves to mexico and the road to the civil war by alice l. Baumgartner and the kidnapping club wall street slavery and resistance on the eve of the civil war by jonathan. Daniel wells all right. That's a lot. Carrie thank you so much for being here vegas much for having me. So it's interesting looking at these two books together. They're sort of an error but they told two different sides of the same story. Just if you could tell us broadly. What are the two books about. Certainly the book by jonathan. Daniel wells the kidnapping club. It talks about the organiz. Terror inflicted on black new yorkers by kidnapping club which was a group of investors business owners and police officers in new york city in the years before the civil war and they use the fugitive slave law to be enslaved to kidnap african americans. Who were living nominally free in new york and transporting them back into the south and then we have our gardeners beautiful south to freedom runaway slaves to mexico which traces the journey of escaped slaves to mexico again in the decades before the civil war and the relationship between mexico freedom and concepts of recent citizenship. So the story of the kidnapping club if it is at all familiar to listeners. It's probably most familiar as the story that was told. In the recent film. Twelve years a slave it was sort of lightly fictionalized version the memoirs of solomon northrop but. What's the larger story here. The larger store which i think john wells does extremely well is a story of the complicity of the north in enslavement and enslave rate and the fact that american slavery was a national and a transnational institution and that to argue that somehow new york city was acknowledged as a free state although that was true because slavery was a national international institution. The powers that be in new york in the years before the civil war were dedicated to upholding that system. And so it really goes into the heart of this notion. What does it mean to be a free person. A free african american in a country and in a global system that endorsed racial slavery. The other thing that. I think jonathan daniel wells book does very well is connect the distrust the relationship between the police and law enforcement particularly in new york city. But we can use that. As a microcosm of parts of the country between new york city's police department and authorities and the black community and this video the trail that the black community felt justifiably so and experience at the hands of the police being an organized club to kidnap particularly black children and send them back into the south heart so obviously there are some contemporary parallels but one thing i thought was so interesting. That you point out in your review is the extent to which the various powers from the insurance business to the finance community to the law community was entrenched in maintaining the slave trade. Can you talk about the extent to which the early capitalist economy of new york city sort of thrived and depended on slavery so in wells book. He shows that the number one there was a cultural connection between the financier is in wall street in new york city and slavery in the south and so all of the banks all of the investment firms all of the capital that was funding the system that it took to maintain enslavement for instance investing in the distribution of food distribution of goods that were sent into the south to maintain slavery. That was a business and that was run through wall street's financial system and so it wells argues shows is that that system was dependent upon southern slavery. Southern slavery was dependent behind that system and so there was a vested interest by very very powerful people organizations in new york city to maintain and to ensure that slavery existed there is also a very vested interest in ensuring that fugitive slaves who escaped would be returned to the south given the fact that we're talking about black bodies commodities and the fact that if a black person escaped that was in the crude terms of the time somebody losing money and investment and so this whole machinery of kidnapping african americans and sending them back in the south. It was a business and it was making a lot of money for a lot of people.
