Extreme weather spells trouble for Gulf Coast oysters
"Along the northern shores of the Gulf of Mexico wasters live in coastal estuaries or saltwater and freshwater meet mix. The? Don's wanted the Mississippi. Alabama, see grant, consortium, says the shellfish require water that salty, but not too salty. So, it's kind of like goldilocks washes really looking for that perfect location. Really find that water. That's just right. That's where they make their home. But. Climate change is throwing off that balance when heavy rainfall too much fresh water may flow from the Mississippi. River into the Oyster Reef, That short period of time, but if it goes beyond just a few days than it affects their health, and ultimately see mass mortalities of oysters, because freshwater inflow on the other hand when there's not enough rain, the water around oyster beds gets too salty. That allows salt water predators such as snail called the oyster drill to enter Oyster Habitat. This nail can make a hole in the oyster shell. Suck it out in digest it, so swan says as climate change causes precipitation extremes at both ends of the spectrum while Gulf. Coast Oysters may lose the just right goldilocks zone. They need to thrive.

Black Sparrow and Buffalo Soldiers
"Since colonial times African Americans have fought in America's wars. In every war in fact, The first person to die in the revolutionary. War Christmas attics was black. Black soldiers have put their lives on the line for a country that for centuries enslaved segregated and discriminated against them. Until the Korean War black served in segregated units under racist leadership and often relegated to labor and service units. Despite the continuous discriminatory treatment that denied blacks full participation in America's military efforts, these brave men and women lived lives that deserve to be remembered. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Possibly the best known all black military unit comes with a bit of mystery in its history. They were called Buffalo soldiers, though there are competing reasons as to why. In eighteen, sixty, six and active congress created six all black peacetime regiments later consolidated into four, the ninth and Tenth Cavalry and the Twenty Fourth and twenty fifth infantry. Initially the Buffalo soldier regiments were commanded by whites with being forbidden from holding the ranks officers. These. Troops often faced extreme racial prejudice from the army establishment. Many officers including George Armstrong custer of boo and a his there. Refused to command black regiments, even though it costs them promotions. Further black troops could only serve west of the Mississippi. River, because many whites didn't want to see armed black men near their communities. It even sometimes happened that the buffalo soldiers suffered deadly violence at the hands of civilians. The Buffalo soldiers main duty was to support the nation's westward expansion by protecting settlers, building roads and other infrastructure and guarding the US mail. They served a variety of posts in the southwestern great planes, taking part in most of the military campaigns during the decades long Indian wars during which they compiled a distinguished record with eighteen buffalo soldiers awarded the Medal of honor. We don't have time today to dwell on the irony of African American soldiers, fighting native people on behalf of government that accepted neither group as equals. The exceptional performance of these soldiers helped to overcome resistance to the idea of black officers paving the way for the first african-american graduate from West Point Henry O flipper. Who will hear more about later? But. Fellow soldiers played significant roles in many other military actions. They took part in defusing the little known eighteen, ninety two Johnson County war in Wyoming, which pitted small farmers against wealthy ranchers and a band of hired gunmen. They also fought in the Spanish American and Philippine American wars and played a key role in maintaining border security during the high intensity, military conflict along the US Mexico border during the Mexican revolution. In Nineteen Eighteen, the tenth cavalry fought at the Battle of ambos Nogales where they assisted enforcing the of the Mexican federal and militia forces. Discrimination played a role in diminishing the buffalo soldiers involvement in upcoming major conflicts. During world. War One the racist policies of President Woodrow Wilson among whose claims to infamy include segregating federal offices led to black regiments, being excluded from the American Expeditionary Force, and placed under French command for the duration of the war. The first time ever that American troops were placed under the command of a foreign power. Then prior to World War Two, the ninth and Tenth Cavalry Regiments were essentially disbanded, and most of their troops moved to service roles. However the Ninety Second Infantry Division known as the Buffalo Division did see combat during the invasion of Italy while another division that included the original Buffalo Soldiers of the twenty fifth infantry. Regiment fought in the Pacific theater. The last segregated. US Army regiments were disbanded in nineteen,

Summer Wildflowers With Carol Gracie
"I asked when we spoke I. Don't know a few years back upon the publication of your book spring wildflowers of the Northeast The sub pad on the cover of the new book. summer book as on the old one, says unnatural history and I'd like to know what that means. Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year? Omni Arthur There are more there about thirty five, I, think. More than that, because in some chapters I cover many more than one species. Of Related Species for instance. Right, so for instance you chose Common Milkweed, and there are other milkweed Zvi chose common milkweed, and that is over a far wider range than what we just talked about. Right and that goes even beyond the. Northeast Important! For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.

South Dakota National Parks
"Welcome the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about South Dakota. I'd like to welcome back to the show Gary Art from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? Surprise surprise about national parks. This time about the National Parks of South Dakota Gary. Welcome back to the show. It has been so long. Yeah and we never get to talk so it's always a pleasure. It has been a very short period of time since I talked to carry but we have talked about doing this show since we ran into each other. Probably at Mount Rushmore last October September September. I think yeah. Maybe it's October. But yeah we're going to t backs and and this was totally unplanned. You just happen to be a remote rushmore exact same time. It's one of those odd coincidences that happen. And it doesn't happen to meet all that often but there are some national parks in South Dakota. That are not Mount Rushmore. So where are we going if we go to the National Parks of South Dakota? They're six national park. Service sites in South Dakota and five of them are in the West located in or near the Black Hills. And then there's one all by its lonesome in the east so we might as well talk about that one. I and that is the Missouri River National Recreation area. It lies on the Missouri River as you might guess given the name it is in the charming little town of yanked him. South Dakota believe it or not. I was actually rather curious to visit yanked and because I had read a list several years ago that had the cheapest place to live in America was yanked in South Dakota so it was kind of curious to see I was kind of curious. What kind of community is this? And it's very nice and it's not rundown or anything now it's cheap. It just happens to be in the middle of nowhere and that's why the site is right on the border with Missouri arm starting Nebraska and it's fifty nine mile stretch of the Missouri River. Very nice some very large bluffs that are overlooking the river and a national recreation area. So it's not a park if you go to the visitor center and look to get your National Park Stamp. It is not a visitor center per se. It is the office. So that's where the maintenance vehicles and the office staff and they're all there and in that building there's a very small lobby and they just sort of stick the stamp out there for people that want it but unlike pretty much every other national parks that you go to. There's no movie there's no displays none of that. It's very straightforward. It's just something that you can visit. There's a bridge which goes from South Dakota to Nebraska that crosses the river and that's probably some of the best views you're going to get of the river if you WANNA take some photos. There's a place you can pull out just before the bridge. You can't really stop on the bridge nor can you really walk across the bridge. So that's kind of difficult so you just have to keep those things in mind. It's far enough east for. I think you could easily do day-trip if you happen to be in Sioux falls or if you're driving across the state I mean if you wanted to dip down interstate ninety s the interstate. The kind of runs across South Dakota East West. You could do that if you're a serious national parks. Yeah other than that. There's not a lot there. Well I should say for the listeners. The show who are either not from the US or possibly geographically challenged the Missouri River may not stick out in your mind but Missouri River is the longest river in North America. If you include the merchant into the Mississippi River in Saint Louis even if you don't include the Mississippi part I believe North think it's the Missouri Mississippi Slash Missouri. So if you took if you went from New Orleans and then just kind of banked left at Saint Louis rather than right that would take you further. 'cause THE MISSISSIPPI goes up into northern Minnesota whereas the Missouri goes much further will the I? I'm looking it up in the Missouri River just until it gets to the mouth Where it enters into the Mississippi is well for our European listers who I was mentioning this forest. Thirty seven hundred thirty seven sixty seven kilometers or two thousand three hundred forty one miles. So there's really quite an amazing amount of the length of this river not to mention the fact that it empties into the Mississippi River. The river at this point and yanked is pretty good sized. It's not a rapid river. Anything like that. It's far too big for it if anything else. It kind of gives you an appreciation for the river. Think if you go up to North Dakota there are some sites that are close to the as well and you with Lewis and Clark and these the Missouri kind of as their highway to get to the West speaking of the river. I in South Dakota many times live in Minnesota and I think South Dakota is kind of. There's two half's to the state the east and the West in the dividing line is the Missouri River it kind of goes along Nebraska and then it hooks up in when you're on interstate ninety that goes East West when you cross the river. The geography changes pretty dramatically so on the eastern side of the river. It's really flat. Is Your stereotypical great plains. Corn for miles. Once you cross it then you start to see hills instantly like instantly instantly. And that's a function of the river the meandering of the river in the flood plain and everything has basically scour out everything to the east of it and literally. When you cross the bridge you start to see some hills and that's not the black hills yet but it's kind of building up to that. I think you're still well over one hundred miles away at that point and all of the rest of the parks are in this. Western part of the state in the western part of the state is by far the most interesting. It gets the most tourists. You've heard of pretty much anything. In South Dakota it is to the west of the Missouri River in that Black Hills area. So we're talking deadwood Mount Rushmore while drug everything except the Mitchell Corn Palace.
Disaster Squared: A Hurricane During the Pandemic
"Hey Daniel so who you've been talking to so I've been talking to a number of people who are preparing for both hurricane risk and flood risk this year mostly along the Mississippi River From Iowa down in New Orleans and some of them the really worried about the impact that big flood or big storm could have during the pandemic. I would get on ninety. He's and talk. Pray and this is mayor. Belinda constant of Gretna Louisiana. Greta is right across the Mississippi River from New Orleans and I wanted to zoom in on this region South Louisiana because it is a hot spot for cove nineteen but it is also a place that facebook flood and hurricane risk so of Gretna a natural disaster during the pandemic mayor. Constant is most worried about her. Vulnerable residence I have a senior apartment facility in my city. That's that you know. Keeps me up every night already. Now I'm going to have to worry about what to do with seniors with you know a hurricane come. We're GONNA have to West just dorm to the extent you know people in South Louisiana. If it's a cat three they're gone. Delete under this situation. It's place for them to go. Most of these hotels are closed office area but mayor constant also worried that the support that she normally relies on in a disaster. The state nearby governments local volunteers. They may not be fully available to help in this situation. I'm telling you we have an incredible working relationship with all of our elected officials at the governor's office down to municipalities. But they're dealing with their own issues. I'm sure they will work with us in partnership to do whatever we need to give us whatever we need to deal with it. But they're going to have limitations. They're already stretched in many many different ways. We've gotTA figure out how to protect our own. Because everybody else is in their own crisis
Scientists expect spring floods to be milder than last year
"Widespread flooding is likely this spring that's according to federal weather forecasters NPR's Rebecca Hersher reports the northern plains are most at risk for major flooding the Dakotas Minnesota and parts of the Gulf coast are at risk for moderate and major flooding between April and June according to the national oceanic and atmospheric administration the southeastern U. S. is also a risk soil is already saturated so heavy spring rain could cause flooding heavy rain is getting more likely in much of the U. S. as the earth gets hotter forecasters say this spring's flooding will likely be above average but not as severe as the record breaking floods last year along the Mississippi River and its tributaries none the less this year's funding could have serious implications if water damages homes since Americans are trying to isolate themselves in their houses due to the corona
New Gas And Chemical Facilities Crowd Louisiana's 'Cancer Alley'
"There's an industrial corridor in southeastern Louisiana. That people call cancer alley. It has more than one hundred and forty chemical factories and oil refineries and now there's a boom in natural gas and so industry. There is expanding so our efforts to stop it. Here's Teagan Wenlin of member station. Wwf New Orleans on a sunny Saturday. Morning I meet Sharon Levin a little tour of her neighborhood house right there terrence. Oh Great. She grew up here in rural welcome. Louisiana in Saint James Parish along the Mississippi River and most of the kids have stuck around too but now she's on a mission to stop a proposed chemical mega-complex less than a mile from her house. We drive just around a curve and see a big empty field where there's some construction underway in the distance. There's a metal fence get you see locate beggar defense back there. That silver thing is new L. shape. That's where the grapes are. That's what I saw. There used to be a plantation here so when the giant factory was approved state. Archaeologists investigated the site and found graves of enslaved people. We stopped to look. I'm pretty sure a lot of us here. Have ancestors are buried in that group in one of those gravesites? Levine's hoping the historic graves will force the company Formosa Petrochemical To Stop Building. The Taiwanese company is one of the biggest plastic manufacturers in the world. And this is a good place to build. The river provides quick access to an international port and the state offers tax breaks gave Mosa twelve million dollar grant. But Levine sees the plant as a threat to a place. She loves model Morning Coffee Back at her house which he built on family land with her husband. She describes how the rich fertile soil along. The river made for a great farming fifty years ago. It was wonderful back then. Beautiful Plan and everything Nice. My Dad grew all of our best doubles in foods. They take the vegetables to New Orleans and sell them at the French market. We had to get up early in the moment will pick low beams. I used to hate that now. Her country home is surrounded by giant factories. There are more than ten in Saint James Parish their smoke stacks forming huge clouds that cast shadows over miles. Levin thinks all of that industry is making her family and neighbors sick off. The Putin. Don't doubt we go slowly die. Her husband died of heart problems. Many of her neighbors have died of cancer. She says the air often smells bad. It's hard to link specific illnesses to certain pollutants even though Saint James Parish where she lives has an above average rate of cancer for Louisiana. Which has one of the highest rates of cancer in the country. According to an analysis by Propublica the Formosa Complex would more than double toxic air emissions here. Levin organized her neighbors to fight the plant forming a group called rise. Saint James last fall she marched with other environmental advocates all along the Mississippi River up to the capital Baton Rouge. They got lots of media coverage they delivered their demands to lawmakers no new development in the region. Matthew Block has governor John Bel Edwards chief counsel waspishly. The governor does not agree that there should be some moratorium on manufacturing facilities but his office did agree to do a small public health study. It'll survey people within a one and a half mile radius around a single plant five miles away from where living lives. There's no question that this is limited studied. It doesn't pretend to be otherwise but it's also A start in how we can start to look at these communities and whether or not there there is arisen a higher incidence of cancer and then we can make decisions from there but the study won't look at future emissions from the Formosa plant or a handful of others being built advocates. Say It's the only public health. Study the state's ever done in the region and that it's not enough. They accused lawmakers of putting profit over people's lives. The plants have brought a lot of jobs. And money says economist. Laurence Scott Nothing I've ever seen before a spokesperson for most petrochemical says the new plants in Levine's neighborhood would create twelve hundred new high paying jobs. Scott says Louisiana competes with other places for these plants and when communities like Saint James Push back? It's bad for business. One thing for sure is the larger the pushback the more expensive. It is to locate here and that is one of the factors that has to be considered when the right of return on investment here versus Texas. This tension between economic growth and health concerns has played out for years. Beverly Right is the director of the deep South Center for Environmental Justice and has advocated for people in the chemical corridor for more than three decades. It's hard for me to stay calm about this. She says they've won. A few fights stopping some plants from being built getting relocation money for an entire community in one case yet since the nineties. More and more plants have been built. I look at all of our work that we did. I mean this is my life years and watching it just being washed away and a lot of the people that we work with auditing gone now rise. Saint James is suing the US army core to stop the Formosa Plant. They've appealed to the state to revoke the permit. And they're leveraging the historic gravesites. As a reason the company shouldn't be allowed to build still as much as it pains. Her right says the best way for people in the region to protect their health. Maybe just move sitting at our kitchen table Sharon. Levin says she would never consider it. We were here first. The chemical plants tried to invade our privacy and our property. Why don't they go somewhere and not come to us? This is our home. This is not their home. She neatly packed up her flyers and the P. Con Cluster. She made for meeting tonight. She's organizing her neighbors to continue to fight. The Formosa Plant even as construction is underway. Just down the road
Vic Syracuse Homebuilt Aircraft Council Chairman on His Building History
"So how'd you How did you first get involved with With ea where you involve with a chapter when you were younger where that come from. No I if I think back to my first touch on was I. I started building an RV for that was something I always wanted to do. Since I was a kid and I saw. I probably a teeny two or something. On the cover of a mechanics illustrated you can build bigger airplanes. And so I think it was twenty five. I started building rb. Four and Went and visited the local chapter. It was quite a bit different back then. Quite honestly it wasn't quite as welcoming to youth. It was more of an older gentleman's club and they seem to want to sit around and talk more than they did want to build and I wanted to build so one or two visits. I just stayed at home and spent that time building as opposed to a bill chapters. And I I'm at Air Venture was One Thousand Nine hundred ninety one when I came here after I'd already started building. The RB foreign got my first ride with Dick Van. Brunson in the four wow. That's that's a great interaction. What was it led you to the RV to begin with the first of many RV's actually you'll get a kick out of this so like every person trying to build their first airplane. You're on a budget and trying to figure things out and so I'm trying to look at some of the cheaper. Airplanes were to build and The one that was out there at the time I think was a monet model and I realized I didn't have welding skills so next thing I know we're sitting at the dinner table. One night and private pilot magazine came and there was an RV. Four on the cover doing a loop. And I made a comment at dinner to my wife that I really liked to build an airplane someday and her words were well. It'd be nice if you quit talking about it. So that's all I needed to hear. Order was in the mail the next day I love that woman to. That's that is terrific just out of curiosity the RV for you. GotTa ride in from from Dick. Was that the prototype. Yes it's the one in the museum right now. Yes that was the first survey you've ever had a ride and was the one that sets the display so you do have to point out how old I am music. There's a lot of airplanes are now in in thanks. I'm well Oh my goodness so How long did it take you to build that first? Rv for? And what was that experience? Like so I kind of didn't know what I was doing. I'd been building. He's gets for a good part of my life. You start on page one page ten. You've got something and Building like radios teams up to color. Tv's okay did you ever built the weather station the beneath get weather station. I didn't do that. Dad and I did that together. Only father something projects like that hands on that we did. That was a lot of fun. Yeah I missiles heath kit days me to have my silla scope and once in a while but that's just when you look like a bond villain or something so Well BACK TO VIG. You asked me about trying to remember the question. Sorry the question is what was the how long it took out the RV here. I am this twenty five year old kid and again it was an old guys club and I I've always been one. Once you start you keep going and you get it done and So I kept calling pestering fan. Hey Winston xe kit coming so I started out as serial number. Two thirty nine ended up being the twelfth. One finished vowed I think it was about twenty two months later. Twenty four months later maybe was the first RV for Sun and fun and the first one east of the Mississippi rivers a lot of fun. What do you remember about that? First Flight? The first airplane you built. It was reminds me of here a little bit in that. It was on a New Year's Eve in Cleveland. Ohio and it was minus ten degrees. So we all know what kind of performance you are visa but when you're in an RV four with only. I think I had ten gallons of fuel in it and it was minus ten. You can imagine how that thing Klein about ten thousand minutes. You're not supposed to need oxygen during phase one remember very hilarious so we have a VHS tape. Tom You probably look that up in the library but as a kid okay. So it's funny here. It is it's minus ten degrees outside and I land in the family's all around and I'm I'm I'm on cloud nine. I'm so excited and everything and in video you can see everybody else. Kind of standing around freezing for my wife finding says getting we go inside Your Square John. Ten feet tall Having just mastered this role as test pilot. What did you fly to get ready to to get comfortable in the RV farm you had the right and the other RV but did you. Was there. Another airplane you flew to get deal skills Sharp and all that sort of thing was a lot of ratings at that time including I was doing a tail wheel instruction outer let As a good practice there was a friend on the field and he had a decathlon so that very morning I went up I with him and did three takeoff and landings just to make cert- draining back then right which is something. We're trying to change quite a bit today and no transition team and NO SECOND PILOT ADDITIONAL PILOT PROGRAM. No Load No. Ea Flight Test Manual. But but they had electricity and things. Tom I mean it wasn't it wasn't that long ago is our guest. Okay civic after the after the four. What did you go onto to build? So when I had the four for probably I think three years or so and Basically had a four place family so it got to be not a whole lot of fun having this to place airplane and about that time. Prescott pusher came into being and they came to us with a lot of splash and unfortunately I got caught up in that real splash and again I was the first one to actually finish the Prescott pusher and did manage to fly. Here Dash Gosh The first year we finished it but You know a number. A number of other people behind me Came to demise in that aircraft it was not represented very well and so we realized at that time the best thing to do for four place airplane was probably a rant or have partners and So built another place airplane Kit Fox and Most of the time you're flying by yourself anyway or with one other family member and then we We had partners in one. Eighty two. And then bonanza so that filled the four-place niece for awhile until I was could convince Dick van grunts into doing RV ten which took about ten to twelve years and so you're saying that That the RV ten exists is to shut you up. We'll tell you this alone. I came to air venture. I think it was nineteen ninety-six. After pestering van every year for however many years my wife and I were probably twenty feet from his booth and he sees us coming up and he points right at us and says all right. I'm going to do one. Excellent and you also I mean obviously in addition to the aircraft. A you've built you've you've test flown. Many aircraft done pre buys them in the aircraft also. Da are as well does this represent a free FAA signing off aircraft But one in particular that of that we all have some connection with is the one week wonder the RV twelve iso we built an adventure In in two thousand eighteen. You did the first flight on that I did. That was fun so I'm always have an emotional connection to that aircraft. Matter of fact at lunch I was just explaining that to a couple of your new hires.

Climate and Floodwaters Are Top of Mind for Some Iowa Voters
"Number one issue for Democratic voters in this presidential election season is healthcare but trailing a close second is climate change morning edition host. Rachel Martin it has been reporting an Iowa this past week ahead of the caucuses and she spent some time in the city of Davenport Mississippi River. The city was the site of record breaking floods last spring. How does the rising river in the threat from climate change affect how people vote? Here's what she found out. You talked to enough business. Owners down by Davenport's riverfront and you quickly quickly realized that pretty much. Everyone has a flood story. I got a call from my sister in law. That said I drop the kids off. I have to go downtown. The levee broke all the water started coming through the drains. And I get down here and we had four and a half feet in her basement. It was coming up to our doors and we just started sandbagging. It just caught my eye and then I went. Oh my God the weavers coming in that last voices Tim Baldwin. He owns an upscale pub right on the waterfront. Dan Bush runs another restaurant a few blocks away and we met them at low pies. Pizza joint. Andrew Lopez is the owner there. Margarita a really chill are red red sauce. It's got a really nice kick to it so you really don't need much with it. All three of these guys took a financial hit after the flood last year but they were the lucky ones. Some some of the businesses around the area had to shut their doors for good. I mean here. You are sitting couple of hundred feet away from the riverbank right over there so do just write this off or do you expect that this is going to keep happening. I think we're forced to take it seriously. That's Dan Bush. After the disaster he started a coalition of business owners to advocate for better flood. Prevention Science shows shows that this is gonNA progressively get worse uh-huh and that we actually didn't it didn't get as bad as it could have got this year The last big event was a nineteen ninety-three. Don't expect it to be another twenty five twenty seven years before it happens again affects your hearts about climate change and your political choices Andrew. I think it's a big deal and it's been getting worse and worse every year so I think it's signed the take a step forward in China or something about it. I you know I love these guys but we have a different political views. Where's the difference? Well the climate change as we hear about it every day through the national media media. I don't believe is our problem. I believe climate changing and I believe climate's been changing since the inception of this planet. Right all I know is what is obvious is to me and that is when it rains. Water has nowhere to go except to the Mississippi River but is it. Is it related to what driving cars I and eating beef. I'm not convinced of that. Damn I think this event definitely made me think more about climate than ever had in my life but Yeah I think we're at the point. Where the cause is not the conversation? It's okay we tim and I agree. It's happening now. How do we handle it? Their answers for that question are are different too. It's GonNa Shave Danny political choice this year. He says he'll caucus for Elizabeth Warren for lots of reasons including her plans to fight climate. Change Tim on the other hand and is a conservative. His primary issue isn't climate change at all it's the economy and he's voting for Donald Trump. We say our goodbyes. Then walk back along the river. We take a right near retail shops and eventually find our way to e second street where we meet any stop-loss. We've got a lot going on right now. So so that's why it's this. Andy runs trendy. Men's clothing store just a couple blocks from the river. I mean the whole community came together and it was. We were knees deep in water. I see and bagging all this area to protect you know our space power you preparing for the inevitability of it happening again. Since I've lived here we've only had one really really big flood And it was when I was young. I don't remember it so historically the are not very high but when you think of the environment the effects and everything that is included what's happening. The chances are a lot higher. Do those issues motivate you politically absolutely. She doesn't want to say who she's going to caucus for Monday but her fiance Kayla is all in for Elizabeth Warren. She's worried about our children and our children's children and what the environmental merriment earth is going to be like at that point because have kids. No we're yesterday. I got my apartment. Were Planning on it. Yeah in time a year. You're after the flood. Anne and Kayla are looking to the future like so many others. We talked with here and after tomorrow's caucuses they'll have a better idea of what that future might look like.

Anyway, so I also thank him for supporting Jearl dean's work, because it has given me just enormous pleasure. So terribly sad passing of Tony Horwitz much hotter is a double chatter today. First of all, I commend the documentary knocked down the house. If you haven't had a chance to see it, it's Netflix documentary about the primary campaigns of four women in two thousand eighteen running as progressive Democrats, against less progress. Democrats. The main subject of it. However, is Alexandria. Caccia cortez. Of course, we've heard so much about her since she's been elected. But this is catching her at the very beginning of her primary campaign, and then through the primary campaign. She launched this quixotic and truly like seemed doomed campaign to unseat an incredibly powerful queens democratic machine politician, Joe Crowley, and it's a fantastic documentary. And she is a magnetic. I mean, we've course learned that from watching her office, but she is utterly compelling fascinating appealing person. And I think even people who may be skeptical of her. We'll we'll come away thinking what a remarkable. What a remarkable woman she is. So I and I absolutely urge you to stay to the end, if you even if you don't like it skip ahead to the last ten minutes because of the final couple of scenes her victory party. And then what happens afterwards are just really worth the whole movie. So checkout neck knock down the house. And then a second chatter just I discover something today, which I'd never heard about, which is absolutely fascinating and terrifying, which is that there's this possibility that the entire river, commerce of the United States, all of the Mississippi River commerce and everything that's attached to it is endanger and danger right now, because of something called the Echief, Eliah river. The basic principle is that the Mississippi River currently flows through the Mississippi River, down to Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and to the ports in Louisiana, and there's a huge amount of commerce on those ports, but the Mississippi River does not want to flow where it flows. Mitch Avia river wants to flow down a different channel, which is the fillet river and the US governments has spent billions and billions of dollars keeping the Mississippi from jumping it's track and getting into the Liat, and if it does get into the Alaya, the misset water levels in Mississippi River will drop precipitously the towns down. Stream from from where this jump happens. We'll be flooded. There's very likely lots of natural gas oil pipelines, electrical wires will be destroyed and wiped out, and it could paralyze the internal river highway of the United States for months years, and maybe even totally unfixable. It's all maintained right now by very precarious set of US army corps of engineers facilities, and there's a bunch of writing that's been done about it. And frankly terrifying. It's like because it's it's one of these things which nature just wants to happen. And we are fighting nature from from letting it happen. So learn about the Echief Eliah basin, which could be the disaster that, that crushes the American economy and in this year or next year in five years, also dear ones, we have listened chatter from you.

national audubon society would reach her slug in brooklyn new york alley this is quite a blended family isn't what is he up to what was the last time you checked what's going on in that know ever since i wrote the piece actually while i was researching the peace even i've had them up on my desktop almost all the time it's just sort of a comfort has been there i'm not sure why but i'm looking at them right now on one of the funniest things i've seen gene is happening one of the birds is sort of guarding the babies from a freak sort of windstorm but he his back end is facing the camera so his tail and his back better they're all blown out an it's very very funny shot can you just describe press the relationship between these three birds is you understand it so from what i understand the current birds and then that have all mated together at one point or another so they're in eight an actual intimate relationship together and they all share parenting they all feed the baby and they'll sit on the mess a the guard the baby's first civilized to this love triangle is working very well it seems to be and it's been going on for quite some time a and it's gone through two different female inmates the first female inmates at these two males ahead together perished in attack in two thousand seventeen this is what the ego you called hope yes yes okay let's go back to the beginning 'cause i originally there was one male one female eagle that were nesting together right correct that was valor one in help okay and how did that relationship go so they both showed up i believe it was in two thousand thirteen i think they'd been seen a little bit before then but it was very clear that they were together in this mess in two thousand thirteen and they had babies together glitz and a valid one it seemed quite understand his role as a parent plus he wasn't that committed to it he would get on and that's where maybe ten minutes and then leave before the mom came back in the hopes seem to be having a lot of trouble with him she's pretty frustrated with valor as as one might imagine a and i don't know if they have actual squabbles without it but she did something rather pragmatic and she found a new mates you seem to be much better at being a parent the next year there the second a male eagle on the nest whip her you call you call valor to right exactly i'm not sure how that happened the audience who's watching the webcam at that time there was a there is a vote on what say original eagles names she'd be and they had dollar one and hope so and i'm not sure why they just decided to go salads to the second eagle but that's how it turns out now with valor to to showed up and joined in and she would be a better made from hope much better he actually seem to get it he was very good at you know doing all of these adjust ational and once the babies were born taking care of them feeding them protecting them but valor one never left we just around like he didn't do any of the parental duties at least not at first but he just hung around and valor to didn't scare him off like a most predator birds don't don't have two males that consistent one intimate relationship and shit like that it was not for long and then within a couple of years we've seen suddenly being brought back into the fold in taking taking on parental responsibilities because i think they just got it by watching valor to do it hope but as you point out hopeless killed a horribly she was attacked by other eagles is that right yes so she was gone and is dollar one dollar to the did the boys still hanging out with each other yeah q male they need an fended off be a rotting eagles and took care of the baby's until they fledged just two males i didn't have a female at that time when the next it's so strange but yeah the next year that's one start showed up at the star seem reluctant to get involved in a relation and ongoing situation that's interesting i don't i don't know i mean based on what i have heard from the stewart is that she was doing all the things that bird do in the beginning of their courting they you know they help sort of put together a home and she was moving things around the nest and you know a lot of a funny sort of anecdote is that some of the male the male would put a sticker something in one place and she pick it up and move it somewhere else and then let me do as we do now do you know whether it's unusual for these kinds of threesome among bald eagles it is unusual at least it's unusual for us to see it one thing that i've i've heard from the scientists that i spoke to who knows what's going on behind closed doors or in places where humans can't get too but at least in terms of what people have observed it's very rare to see three bald eagles or any predators really gather what's even more rare to see a trio that is a that is a true including partnership on this show we have done other stories about different kinds of of of unusual we think unusual relationships between birds and animals the same sex a vultures who hatch and abandoned together two males but perhaps these stories are not so unusual i mean we make assumptions about than the world don't we maybe we don't observe and his closest we might exactly and i think i'll know these these mysterious creatures and what we see

some say improved captain eyeliner the character has lost his hat and turtleneck and gained a powerful allure eyeliner says he's quote to the same trustworthy captain but now people see him in a new light but it seems are listeners are split down the middle as to whether that new light is something they can get on board with it okay on facebook robert mark mccormack commented more like captain high daddy laurie paxton wrote triangle trout just got more appealing and sarah alice is also hungry she wrote never have i believe in fish sticks more than calling on row regarding the captain's new videos with off saying i can't wait to see the queer eye episode for this make over but many have you regard is transformation with suspicion like andy reid who asked bit of botox garrett hardy

"It killed nearly eight thousand people the virus earned New Orleans, the nickname necropolis city of the dead. And it wasn't a pretty way to die victims experienced jaundice. So they turn yellow, that's Catherine. Various she's a professor at Stanford who studies the history of yellow fever. She says yellow fever would lead to chills nausea, headaches, fever convulsions. Delirium Oliveria's says it was a disease that turned holy men away from God, even pious victims scream profanity's, the end neared about half of people who got yellow fever would die from it. You might think all this death was keeping people away from New Orleans, but actually people were flocking there Oliveria says it was like the antebellum Silicon Valley. It was the place where if you were an ambitious white man, you went to make your fortune that was because of slavery the cotton industry and New Orleans strategic. Location on the Mississippi River, but all various says that there were only a handful of people who made it in New Orleans. Most people never rail to break into the upper echelons of society. And so you have people quite literally arriving in a deathtrap today. There's a vaccine for yellow fever, but back then the only way to get immunity from the disease was to survive it. So there were tons of myths and misinformation floating around that people who eat a lot of tomatoes will kick yellow fever or people who eat too much fruit will get yellow fever and other widespread myth that you couldn't get yellow fever. If he were black Allah various says prominent doctors spread the lie that black people were naturally immune to the disease, and she says that lie was used to justify slavery. If black people are naturally resistant, fever, therefore black. Slavery is natural even humanitarian because it protects white people from spaces and labor that would kill. Them. But here's the thing. Even if they didn't want to admit, it, many people knew that black folks weren't immune at slave markets. Few people were willing to buy a person who wasn't already acclimated to yellow fever. So you're dealing with a Gordian knot of contradictions that all ended up furthering the cause of white supremacy and the expansion of racial slavery, yellow fever. It killed thousands terrified even more and was a long-standing tool of white supremacy. How's that for a horror story, legionella NPR news?.
