How should I launch a gift box service for new moms?
"Hi Chris. This is Sarah from Florida. And I've been listening to your show for a while. Only had an idea I'm passionate about my personal experiences. Thinking about starting a side hustle and the GIG box market appeal to mount oftentimes people forget that not only the a baby born with a Momma's born to, and she could also use some TLC. My question as I began my research process is. Do you think it's wise? decided new venture on a platform such as exceed the captive audience, or do you think it makes more sense to build your own website and work to draft traffic through social media? ADS etc.. Or is it perhaps both thanks in Florida hearing your answers of they build up my idea. Hey, Sarah what's up. Thank you so much for listening and I think this is a great idea. We had a story recently about someone doing something kind of like this episode nine fifteen. The MOM box subscription offers postpartum recovery products. And just as a reminder, in case, anybody new when I say somebody's been doing this before. That doesn't mean, don't do it. It often means there's a market for this. There are people willing to pay for it, so it's great that there's one service out. They're gonNA provide something that is a little bit different, or at least a different customers and so on. So as to which path is best here in terms of the Oetzi versus website thing, it's kind of a yes and. So I think you said something like. Should it be both I I? Do think it could be both. I think experimenting on is worth it. It's very low cost. You might learn something. You'll probably improve your skill. In terms of copyrighting, maybe in terms of images, maybe pricing whatever it is, you'll learn something, but I also think in the long run. You definitely want your website and that's because in the long run. You don't WanNa. Be Dependent on. Any other platform now I don't necessarily believe that means that you should focus on media ads however. At least not at first a Lotta people lose money doing not. I've had a bunch of questions recently about this. So if you probably hear this some other questions. As well going forward. The time to spend money on advertising is when you want to amplify A. Product or just get more reach for something that's already working like when your conversion rate is high, it's not usually a great way to introduce a new product and then sell that product, and then grow your initial following all at once. Those are just too many goals to accomplish unless you have an unlimited budget, and even they're going to end up wasting a lot of that money, so not necessarily social media ads, but I do think it'd be good to experiment on. And as well built out your own website
Black Mamas March in Washington, D.C. rallies around message to remove police from schools
"Chance of black lives. They matter here are wringing out at the Black Mamas march at the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue this afternoon. Protesters there, including mothers and Children, who say they've lost family members to police violence are calling for the removal of police officers from local schools. The key is Sankara Jabbar is with racial justice. Now that all Montgomery County for black folks, Montgomery County has three million investing $3 million for sorrows. Montgomery County P D police, Black Children, M CPS, and we're calling for the end of the criminalization and over policing black Children. More from W. GOP's Alejandro Alvarez at the scene of the March ahead of the main march at the Black Mommas Rally, they actually have set aside a moment for Children's who walk around the Navy memorial on their own. Sort of independent march like they said, to give our kids a chance to walk after three months of being stuck indoors, and this is kind of like a miniature black lives matter March they have signs which the Children were making beforehand that say, Black lives matter. No justice, no peace.

It so that it it can attack you and so there is a potential treatment that they could Produce these antibodies mass quantity and distribute them to people who are at risk or who have already been diagnosed whereas you know obviously people are working on a vaccine which is good But not everybody might have access or want to get this vaccine so have a Lotta Shield Shield Allama Yeah we all need to get our own personal a basically no they are in the preclinical studies right.

Movie date here. Well we were watching star wars movie last week. Actually for a May the fourth be with you. Yes I mean. Everyone wants to start saying I just heard there. There really isn't a new one. I forget the forget. The woman's name is GonNa help write it but it seems promising either way it does break my heart a little bit. Though that when my kids think of Star Wars they think of the you know the. The newer movies is more than the ones that we are up with. I'm not sure I know if my kids know what star wars is it was. It was a happy meal toy for a little while when the movie was added December. Yeah they got. They got the toys. These little stupid star wars looks like a little longer thing but it's not really a Hologram is dumb. But they're still a bit young yeah. It was an awkward conversation. You know when Antigen kind of goes on his rage and kills like the whole village and everything he. He's the bad guy it's weird. Yeah it's definitely I mean. People talk about the right order to watch star wars and all that when you show it to your kids but I don't know you just never replicate how how we came just hours. Not even I mean even necessarily. It's it's so old. I watched all the star wars before I came out on ninety nine but I was seventeen when when episode one came out so like I knew. All the twists stopped but not it wasn't like ingrained the same way it was like you grew up. Watch if you're a teenager. We saw star Wars Serb return. Whatever yeah so for my parents they got to see it in the movie theater for the first time and I just kind of watched it on video. Yeah you Kinda delegates you. I don't know if I don't I don't remember. I was young. Probably younger than maybe. What the target you had you got and see the movie but like the elevators father. I don't know if that hits the same way. Twenty years later as does what did you know in the graphics of the silly laser. That's it to like. It was space fights and his lightsaber stuff. That was like ingrained culture by the time he saw it and now kids like the stuff is but what does that. Yeah like. My daughter was asking watching this movie and she was like wait. A minute is good or bad guy. And it's like well just star. Just keep watching and you'll see you know it's not going to have to have the same effect for her because she is starting out with a an thinking of him as a good guy you know whereas we came from the opposite and love okay. Darth vader was definitely the bad guy. And then okay. Let's watch the the PREQUELS and like oh. He used to be a good guy. It's a completely different experience. Yes we isn't it. I always like stuff like that when you come to. I mean I wish the movies were better than the first three really star wars. Isn't that great? A movie from a cinematic like sinophile. Kyp- story Oh critic is interesting. How the stories come out differently the way you watch them and it's always neat when you can watch something different watering a different experience and learn more I was so but specifically joints. You'll have joins now right. You have a little helper. Droid running around. I mean we do have like NBA's and this thing but rt to is going to be probably one of the most beloved star wars characters. Maybe the only put a number one. Yes I would agree with that Do you lake deviate will ever come close to rtd to it with the generation. Now well I guess I guess ask arcades kind of thing but like archie. Just been around forever. And he's like the he's the prototype of the first one that we were really introduced to and fall in love with his beeps and stuff and you know he. He's the U. N. title that. I'm not nerdy enough to know but like he gets in the back of the starship and he's helping guide and will connect to the computer. He's like he's a he's a helper droid and that's something that people are thinking about now is. Are we going to need help? A robots getting around
The Other Side Of Belonging
"I'm Nora mcnerney and this is terrible. Thanks for asking and this is Jen does it. I've done it and it's a terrible day when that happens. Yeah let's just circle back to the first question I asked you know. It's twenty sixteen not currently but for the sake of this story. It's two thousand sixteen and Jen and her husband. Brandon are getting ready to blow up her career Brandon. I had intentionally structured our lives so that we would shoulder the majority of the fallout so I had cleared my calendar. I hadn't taken any new speaking of events for the next calendar year because I knew what it would me I I knew that it would mean every single one of them virtually would need to fire me and it would cause such disruption in their own spaces among their own staff in committees and event planners and all that and. I didn't want that for them. So I had no events on the calendar I've cleared the deck. We had quietly unhooked from several like denominational partnerships that we were involved in those additional that we tried to avoid as much as we could. We prepared our little church as well as we could which there was a lot of division in there too and then so when it released were trying to stand with as few people that were. GonNa go down with the ship as possible. The ship is scheduled to go down with the media interview. Jen has already scheduled one that splits her with the faith that she grew up in she scheduled that interview knowing exactly what she would say in exactly what it would mean for her as a person and as a professional but I got to a point where I just said God literally either get to have my career like it is right now or I get to have my integrity and I have to pick because I cannot have them both and so I picked my integrity and I decided then I will stand in the storm I will not reverse. I will not walk it back. I will not change my mind. I will not soften the blow. I'm just GONNA take it. She made sure to follow up that interview with a facebook post to make sure it's absolutely clear and the facebook post says this so whatever the cost in loss this is where. I am gay teens. Gay Adults MOMMAS and Daddies of precious Gaby's friends and beloved neighbors a very dear. Lgbt folks here are my arms open wide so wide that every last one of you can jump inside. You are so dear so beloved so precious and important you met her so desperately in your life as worthy and beautiful there is nothing wrong with you or in any case. Nothing more right or wrong than any of us which is to say. We're all hopelessly screwed up. Jesus still loves US beyond all reason and lives to make us all new restored whole. Yay for Jesus Thank God. He loves us. He is not embarrassed of any of us. I am not a scandal. You are not a scandal. We are not bringing down his brand anyhow. My message to you today stemple. Lgbt gang and all those who love you you are loved and special and wanted and needed the end. But that's not the end not at all. It's not even really the beginning because in order to understand why that was such a big risky stand to take. You need to understand the world. The Jan came from the world that Jen grew up in. I'm the oldest of four kids And so I was sort of pilot kid. You know how the oldest gets the parents when they're still in their twenties and
The New Normal with Phoebe Waller-Bridge
"Is an auditor as always thank you so much for coming on first of all. How the hell are you good? I've got into a rhythm I think. Some senior okay. The Sun's out as a sort of calm minnow streets. We shocked by. I are you. Are you an extrovert or introvert? Ike feel you're an extrovert. You get your energy from other people rather than get your energy from alone. Time is yeah an extra energy from other people. They need to learn time but they get their energy from other people. Introverts need society in socializing but they get their energy from being on their own. Who Goes I know she do? You know what I think. I generally think I'm not sure I would say I was next. But I don't feel like an extrovert when I'm being making sense. I remember amy. Schumer went said. She's an introverted extroverts. Because I'm actually really really really loving stopping it in. This was so confusing this whole time. Because there's so much positive that has come out of the absolute tragedy but one of them. I think really is that people have suddenly become so much more aware of one another and this. It's been this big sort of humanizing force and to suddenly be having thought over the last year. I've been traveling so much and been moving so much dislike just go go go and wasn't sure if I how I would feel just suddenly being at home quite absolutely love it. I love the quietude. Such quite huge does now. It's like it's like. It's like quiet with attitude. Yes yes. It's hard Clinton too is quite with attention. I relate to that and again. I'm very aware that you know. This is a global pandemic and people are dying and I don't want to sort of make about my silver linings but human beings are designed or have a vote to see silver linings. That's who we are and we need to find silver linings in order to survive. So it's okay to talk about them. Are you having a ball? Well I think I've got. I am finding exactly what you're finding. I've been rushing around London rushing around the world for so long and I haven't taken the time to stop and regroup because there's always another wonderful thing to do or go to opportunity or something to create an they. Some of these. Things are incredible work. I've been able to do with choose. Lov help refugees or coughing with Amnesty International. I wouldn't take any of it back. But there's always something to fill a hole in your calendar and I think for both you and may have the last few years that's been I think especially true. I'm GONNA say especially. Yeah it's been a wild few years. I think it's just when you have a lack of rhythm soda new life whether it's so mad that you're letting the last year for Fussell Of sporadic and spontaneous instead of it's spontaneous but it's also completely at the mercy of the Hustle and I think when you're hustling and whatever scale every time your life. It's this constant kind of hunt. Constitutive run and when you do stop it's just a sort of water breath talking with family friends and then go again and actually. This is me which people have been saying for a very long time. Which is you have to make time to take stock of it all otherwise very healthy and so. I have tie it now because I find this. I'm finding this not coming over me and I think it's years of tidiness landing now. My Body is allowed to be still. Yeah I completely Completely sort of out for the first week. Maybe it was the second week. Actually when lockdown began and actually just before lockdown began the first instinct was sort of from so many people. What can we do? How can we help? What can we? How can we like mobilize? And then all of that kind of crazy energy that came from all these announcements in the realizations and that sense of falling into this kind of crazy global panic sort of thrown into that so I think the first two weeks and then we'll talk for the first two weeks it was all about the fleabag fund and then actually when that et cetera getting up and running after that I just completely just goes so gross and earl and also are you feeling better now via what's it because it's just you start thinking about my health and competed way way and because it's not only for the responsibility news. Your health is your responsibility to yourself. Because you're sort of like yeah. Obviously we all want to look fabulous all the time and that's the main reason for me. Yes but now we like like if I'm healthy. I'm putting my Momma risk or like other people at risk and it's just been such an amazing like amazing massive wakeup call up after after ourselves and it's not just a kind of selfish exercise book quite literally. Selfish exercise suspecting that I am you. I'm feeding seeing the silver linings and I think the social distancing thing is actually in some ways been good as well because you can't just immediately just go to yourself forbid
C-Section Awareness Month
"Is c-section awareness month and we haven't talked about it yet guys so. I just realized it's the end of April. I literally have no concept of time right now. My niece asked me the other day she goes. Hey what's the day today as April eighth and she looked at me and she goes. It's the fourteenth I was like. Oh my bad I was so off and I still continued to be often. I feel like with this especially with the quarantine and happening. It's so hard to keep track of time but we have C-section awareness month this month. So I want to start just by saying that. I know there's a lot of mommas in my life and so many Mama's that are listening who have had C. Sections and. I really really hope that you've never been made to feel less than or that. You haven't had that conversation with your self filling less than because birth is birth. And you still are mom. You carry that baby. You still have that baby and it's I mean for me. It's incredibly courageous to have your body cut open to save your life to save your baby's life what whatever it may be that is. That's major abdominal surgery to have your child so I think that sometimes there could be a division between the way that things are worded with with moms like natural birth or you know whatever it may be and and I think some of that you know just kind of needs to be put aside just your mom and and I know every single mother that I know would do absolutely anything for their children and are so extremely happy that they were blessed with them and got to help them. So a C section awareness month is also just raising owners around Caesarean so in the United States about one in three births and in a C. section. And there's been a lot of studies and things done to show that about. Fifty percent of those are preventable. And a huge part of being able to prevent that is by Educating Yourself. By knowing your options by knowing what's going on even having a Dula present decreases your risk of C-section by twenty eight percent and a huge part of that is because we equip you with tons of tools and knowledge and education however C sections are an amazing thing that saves lives and is very medically necessary but it is highly overused in the United States. And we do have very high maternal death rate here as well compared to a lot of other countries so there is a lot that goes into it so I would just encourage women if you're pregnant or planning on becoming a mom does do a lot of your lottery. Research to equip yourself. Obviously there's people who elect to have them in that totally your choice in totally up to you but if that's something that you hope to avoid there is a lot of education that you can do. I encourage you to take any sort of childbirth class whether it's spinning babies or birthing from within has a bunch of great ones. The Bradley Method Hypno- birthing. All of these courses are Gopi with tools and education resources. Going into it and help you to to better prepare yourself your body and going in knowing that you have a voice in that you have options again. There are absolutely times that it's medically necessary and it saves lives and it's so important and I'm so glad that c-section aren't option and that they do exist but part of spreading the awareness is also spreading their research behind it. And I just want you guys to be equipped in knowledgeable but also don't carry any guilt. Don't feel bad if you have had one and if you know if you wish that you know there's so many things that you can use to work through as well there. There is birth trauma and there are a lot of things that come with it. So you know if you did have a C. section. You're really really struggling with how your birth experience went. I just encourage you to to find help to reach out to somebody whether it's a postpartum. Dula or a maternal health guidance. Counselor somebody to help you work through that because you'll find a lot of healing in in you'll get some resources on how to feel empowered in your experience in your birth because you you're are awesome and and there's so much that so many other things in our lives that that are gonNA knock down as you know as MOMS and and trying to figure this out so so being confident in who. You are feeling empowered in your birthing experiences so important and then that leads into feeling powered as a mom and into motherhood and in just goes into other areas of your life so if you are struggling definitely reach out to somebody because you're not alone a lot of women have been there before. I know you could even talk about it in our facebook group. I know a lot of women are so open to sharing their experiences on there as well. I just salute all of you. C-section Mamas who wear your stripes proudly. You guys are
"momma" Discussed on The Slowdown
"Motherhood Changed Me I. It made me brave. Suddenly it was easy to step in and speak up on behalf of my child then. Mother Hood made me more perceptive. I came to understand how my child felt. I found it was easier to interpret the feelings other people might be experiencing and to anticipate what their actions might be. This must be an evolutionary necessity for mothers of all species moving through the world while caring for offspring. As my children grew older. I could feel motherhood making the wiser when dilemmas arose. My sense of what ought to be done began to change. Move to this place. Let go of that relationship. Choose that other school. Trust this quiet impulse at times. I felt I resembled my own mother more than myself. But my eagerness to guide and protect my children can sometimes result in a clash of Wills Mine Against Theirs and truth be told that says frustrating now as it was back when my mother was raising me. Today's poem celebrates these and other facets of mothering and being mothered Momma said by Candice Williams. Momma said. Wake up Momma said. It's time to get ready. Momma said YOU'LL BE LATE.

Food For Thought: The Julia Child Episode
"Yes I taught English in history in Vista California for twenty two years damn near killed me but this young woman here Emily Myers. He came down here with me. Was My student fifteen years ago and I was a big grammar teacher because I went to Catholic school right. So we're doing this grammar exercising. It said Julia Child Comma the French Chef Comma and whatever else to sentence said and so I said to the students this is what two thousand four ish and I said so Julia. You all know who Julia. Child is the seventh grade. I got these blank. Looks let me tell you about Julia. Child told them the whole story about who she was and the French chef and how she was fifty years old when she first started. I was forty when I was became a teacher. And so this that and the other and then I told them the story about how nineteen eighty nine. I was a stay at home. Mom I had my two kids Cayden Matthew who were six and four. No six and two and Julia child came to town to the to Warwick's books to her book signing of the the way to cook her last book that she wrote on her own and I said I have to go see her. I have to meet her. I just have to do this. In the meantime as the stay at home mom was getting bored so I started making English muffins and if local but you know the Panikin isolating the Sh- muffins to the panicking because the guy who used to own the Panikin road motorcycles with my then husband and one day he came over for what they called the Prince of Norton Prints of darkness motorcycle. Ride and Chili Cook Up. You can tell which part I was in that and and I said Hey bob you wanNA try some English Muffins. And Hey say. He had one with my homemade strawberry jam on it. And he's these are great and I said good. Do you want to buy some because I need to do something out of the home and make some money and he said so to gross a week from my little kitchen when I was living by San Diego State. It was hilarious so this is when I was still doing that so I got the babysitter for the baby. Matthew because he was too he would never have known the difference and I took Kate with me now. Kate was six and so she'd been watching with videotapes at that point Julia. Did something called the way to cook. She did a series of videotapes. Kate and I would watch them. Kate's birthday cake. Every year was the classical. Jen was with the whip cream and the strawberries on it and so I took with me because I walked in Julia. I know by the way I made her a dozen English. Muffins packed them up in a box wrote her. A letter. Dear Julia. You are the one who taught me how to cook. My mother thought she did but she didn't. You're the one who really did with your show. Julia Child and company and Julia Child and more company. I've learned everything I've known from. You saw there. She is. She walks in. Cates going. Momma and I know I know she's here so we get in the line in the line and the you know they always have the helpers with them when they're big like that I don't mean in stature I mean you know and so the lady and I said I said here's a spock's English muffins in it. I made them pro. Have this little business so she. It's my turn. She hands the box. Julia is working out. She did this. She took her. She's she. I was looking in her eyes and she was sitting down because she really was too. She's banging on the box. Oh goody goody gumdrops homemade English muffins she's really did say that it was so funny and I said yes and she's and I told her that I was making them. Well I guess profession getting paid for it so I guess that makes it a profession right and she said I'm so she got very serious. I'm so glad you're doing this. We need more cottage industry like this. She said English muffins she said to me. How do you get them to cook so that they're cooked all the way through and not burn on the outside? I'm going Julia. Child is asking me how to do this. And then I remembered her recipe didn't work. This was not her recipe. This was from a jam book called Jam. Shame or something like that and I said Yeah. That is the secret. Isn't it and I told her how I did it. And it was all about rolling it around in a bowl of corn meal and I said like you had taught me on one of your shows about cornmeal being like a ball bearing and she said I never really thought about that and she was unbelievable. I couldn't believe it. So we're in the store and she signs the book and she didn't sign much of anything. Good luck or whatever and then. Kate neier lurking around the store watching her some more and she oh and you should have seen you know how mom's right so this kid of mine is six years old. She's just standing there looking at her and Julia said some things to. I can't remember what it was but it was really cute. So okay fast forward. It's two thousand ten. I'm on what I called my odyssey because I decided being teacher. I need to take some time off during the summer. Actually do something and not stand at the Xerox Machine. Getting Ready for the next school year. Merola grammar packets. Remember those and I took off. I went on this Odyssey. I went up to Portland just to go to Powell's books because I needed more cookbooks. Right to add to that four thousand collection and so I'm coming back. It's twenty in my little. Volkswagen Cabriolet with the top down and Bonnie Raitt blasting. Having a great time end. The car dies on the side on the side of the road. I got I two tires off the road. That was it and I'm talking about on this very near. Oh I was four miles north of point arena which is two hundred and fifty miles north of San Francisco on the one and not the one. Oh one the one the one the ones the one that goes like this and you can only drive twenty five miles an hour thankfully so I've got my two tires off on the side of the road and some guy comes turns around takes his truck and pushes me the rest of the way off the road and I was a little nervous about that. Call whoever the tow truck comes. I'm taking pictures of the tow truck. Taking my car away they take me down to point arena. I was on my way to that. Lighthouse also lighthouses and now. I'm stuck there for a week because I don't know if I can say this. But what does the industry in Humboldt county growing exactly so the town of point arena about five blocks long? The entire town is stoned. Looks like you can see smoke through the whole thing so he kept my car for a week. Never fixed it. Charge me a thousand dollars. Never fixed it he he had it towed to Healdsburg where his brother fixed it for another thousand dollars. That's another story anyway. So I put it up on facebook. The picture of my car being towed and one of my friends called and he said. I love point arena. You have to meet the Jam Lady. I said okay. Well I'll meet the family so I walk a mile down the road because I don't have a car turn right and there's a sign the Jam Lady. Her real name is Lisa Joa committees. She calls herself Jam Lady. She makes jam in point arena. Sends it all over the place? I went inches a full kitchen like that. One all stainless steel really professional. That we start talking Blah Blah Blah. She Says Yeah. I used to work for Barbara Tropic. China Moon Cafe and I said Oh my God I love her. She figured she'd Cook. My dinner sometime before I was like. Oh my God. This is amazing. She says I told her the Julia Child Story. Oh I forgot to tell you part of it. She wrote me a letter. She answered my little note that I had scrawled on a little tiny legal piece of paper. She wrote me a letter. Julia Child wrote Miller. I have evidence and so I read. I wrote back to her. She wrote me again. I still owe a letter. I don't know why I never finished that. So I'm telling this story to Lisa The lady. She says wait right here. Okay what's going on here? I mean this really weird place she disappeared. Disappears upstairs comes down with a box opens the box? She has a dozen flutes. Champagne flutes. Julius ninetieth birthday party she says you need. These gave me two of them. Doesn't that amazing I just went? I'm a total stranger and you she said we're not strangers. She said you have to have these. They have to be yours and size. Okay thank you thank you. We wrapped in very carefully. They got home even through the bumpy. Healdsburg thing and so then on her hundredth birthday. And I'm not sure what I think that was. I don't remember what year it was on her hundredth birthday. I was home from school that day. I think in August I was home legally and I cooked everything just all Julia Child and I called one of my friends. I said come on over. We use the Julia Child flutes. We had a little split of champagne. We toasted her. I put it all up on facebook. It was amazing and now it's so funny. I have those glasses there in my glass cabinet. But they're hidden in the back and my son in law was here in February and he went to reach for that to put for his champagne. I said Oh no look what that says on it. He says Julia Child's ninetieth birthday. I said you don't use those. You don't appreciate that. This is Julia Child. I mean come on so that is my Julia Child Story. I Love Her love her the day that she died. My daughter was about twenty. I think she called me just limit on her own. She called me says mom have really bad news. What does this in an accident? She says Julia died today and it was as if her her grandmother had. My mother had died. You know we were so cried on the phone and you know who's better than Julia Child
Israel: third time lucky?
"There is possibly good news. At least four Israeli voters wearied of the regular trudge to the polling stations. They might not be obliged to vote for the fourth time in a year or so. This week's general election the third in eleven months appears to have been slightly more decisive than its two predecessors while nobody has an outright majority in the Knesset Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative block on not far short of one failure to assemble a governing. Coalition from here would require rancor and chaos remarkable even by the standards of Israeli politics. This is also obviously provisionally. Good news for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu inasmuch as it looks like Benjamin Netanyahu will get to carry on being Israel's prime minister a job. He has already done longer than anyone else. In the country's history Netanyahu's Likud party won more votes than in September or in April last year. And turnout was actually up on the last couple of elections as for the bad news. There's a fair bit to go round breaking news to bring to Israel's attorney. General has indicted the prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu on multiple corruption charges varies the extremely imminent potential political and legal complication of a serving prime minister standing trial as things stand. Netanyahu is due before the beak in Jerusalem on March seventeenth to begin answering charges of fraud. Bribery and breach of trust go tonight. We are witnessing an attempted. Coup against a serving prime minister based on fabrications and a tainted biased investigative process in this tainted process. They weren't after the truth. They were after me. The investigators didn't pressure the witnesses. To tell the truth they crush them with threatening extortion to tell a lie above sutan biscuit. W meme Sheku. He may apply for a delay citing the imperative of forming a new government. But even if he gets one it likely won't be for long. Israel's judiciary is not known for its difference to politicians within the last decade one former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and one former president Mashi Katzav have served prison sentences after being convicted of various offenses. There appears to be also the further recession of any possibility anytime soon of a meaningful peace agreement with Israel Palestinian neighbors notwithstanding the diligent labours of US president. Donald Trump's son-in-law for a moment imagine a new reality in the Middle East imagine a bustling commercial and tourist centre in Gaza in the West Bank for international businesses.

It is best to discreetly. Forget the name of the Momma Nittany Univer me and my whole name but flew up naming the name today. I am announcing to apply with the formation of the next government Israeli sovereignty on the Jordan Valley and the northern dancy. Manila Netanyahu's latest election campaign. Bet Big on further Israeli expansion into the West Bank days before polls opened. He announced his intention to assume a plan. Long buried by international condemnation for three and a half thousand new settlers homes which would effectively connect the West Bank settlement of Malaya Dem- with Jerusalem. He may now also feel emboldened to act on previous threats to formally annex portions of Palestinian land and it is obviously a grim result for Israeli opposition to Benjamin Netanyahu and its present principal figurehead retired general and foam Israel.

Trading arm twisting and carrot dangling necessary to get his block from the fifty eight Knesset seats. It has to the sixty one. It needs to govern. He will probably find this possible. Even Benny Ganz has conceded that neither he nor anyone else in Israel fancies yet another trip to the polls indeed. It's not altogether impossible. That members of Gansters Liberal Cavan alliance or even Gansu himself may perceive long-term mileage in being seen to prioritize ability and agree to Netanyahu up in the short term in the immediate aftermath of this latest election defeat dance failed to reiterate his previous ironclad objection to serving a prime minister under indictment. However vidor Lieberman leader of the nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu party remains the potentially crucial kingmaker.

By Netanyahu's bellicose and nationalistic conservatism. Demagogues and populists often accidentally contrived to energize their opponents and catalyze new kinds of opposition. It's a long way off and may indeed never happen. But it would be something. If Benjamin Netanyahu's real legacy turned out to be a strengthened Israeli left united across sectarian lines
"We will be talking about childcare a topic we've talked about in the past but some sort of general guidelines for people to think about as they are making their childcare choices that we've heard from our listeners things to keep in mind as general philosophies because you've you've made some changes recently Sarah Right. Yeah I think I think the reason I thought it would be interesting to another childcare episode since we did talk about it before we'll a couple of reasons number one. We have some new listener so this is always requested topic anything from time to time. It's nice to go back on but also I think people forget that this is an area in which you can't set it and forget it because what works when you have one baby is different than when you have two children and it's different when you have older children that may have different kinds of homework and in fact really. The logistics can change every year or even more frequently. We're finding ourselves. It was funny because all of a sudden you know my I wind about it on this podcast. Enough you guys know. I was very frustrated with a lot of evenings because Josh often gets home fairly late there are exceptions. But I certainly can't rely on him to get home. You know around dinner time or anything like that or even penn time and I was finding myself dreading those evenings but our nanny worked from she used to come at seven thirty in the morning and we used to live fairly far from where she did. Now we don't But she came really early. You know she commuted and of course. I wanted to get her out on time. So she left at six o'clock saliva basically get home from work and she'd be pretty much out the door leaving me to deal with the evening on my own. Which again I did it but I wasn't always very happy. Happy about it yet. So you know all sudden. It occurred to me that we didn't necessarily need our nanny to do the morning. Drop off like I don't know what was stopping me. Did Change because it has to do with our move and the timing of the fact that genevieve goes to school now but genevieve school is conveniently located on the way to my office and I had this block on my head thinking like well. You can't drop off the big kids engine. Vive and then one day aren't any had to be often. Let me try it. It was like that is so easy. Like throw Momma car or sometimes we do it with scooters and and a stroller drop off the kids and the timing actually works perfectly because they need to be there really dropped off by like seven forty five and then. I drive halfway to work. Genevieve's drop-off coincides pretty much. Exactly what that halfway point of one I need to get to work and I can actually get in time for when I first patients there and do the drop off which means. I didn't need our nanny to come so early. Which also meant that? I felt free to ask her to work later. So like you know a cascade and now we have her come. Sometimes she still has to come early. We had a parent teacher conference this morning in Josh. Both wanted to go without being distracted by genevieve so she did come early so you know she's still available to come in the morning and usually it's one to two days during the week that she does come early but a lot of other days she comes in around eleven and then we'll stay until seven thirty and then the hours kind of even out to the same number of our. She was working before. But I get that support in the evenings usually put to bed while she's still here and I am a happier person so but it it just like you know we could have easily just stay on autopilot thinking that you know we had a system that worked and you know she was already working a lot of hours. We'd boxed ourselves in a little bit. Yeah so that that was a big thing and then kind of around the same time. I got empowered because I just came to the realization. My husband's actually had to take a little bit more weekend call with the changes at work and it's fine. It's it's reasonable but he's on call one out of every three weekends. I was just started seeing these thirty three percent of my weekend. Stretch ahead of me for the rest of the next decade and not being able to work out and And I was like wait I hover. Genevieve will be twelve though by the end of that second. I'm pretty sure that you can leave a twelve year. Old a fifteen year old a seventeen year old out certainly leave a twelve year old. Okay maybe I was seeing the next five years and I was like. Why can't I just hire someone to comfort like? It doesn't make me a bad parent doesn't make do anything and then. I'm like oh I could hire someone to come. Watch the big kids while I take her to my gym and so now I went back on. Care Dot com which is where we found any. I found to babysitters and I can talk a little bit about the application process. Because I've had pretty good luck and the last two weekends I've come for like two hours since in the morning so I can workout while my husband's working and actually sometimes when he's not working I'm trying to have them come so that he can. Somebody asked to do some work when he's not working so so he can do that without it really taking me and even so we could maybe both at the same time once in a while so again. It's like you have these stories. You tell yourself about what you're allowed to do but we're grownups allowed to do whatever we want. I think there's a mental block about having childcare when you're not actually working right and I think a lot of people have in their mind that the only acceptable time to have it is from the start of your commute to the time when you walk in the door and you know maybe you get a date night every month or so that you have a sitter to regularly build into your life extra hours beyond that I think makes people you know feel weird and we can certainly explore on this podcast. Y that is like why do people feel that way but I think that is definitely we should exactly first before we get to that though the deeper question maybe you can talk through the ads that you put on mystical standpoint so again we found our current nanny through care dot com six years ago. She still working with us. And I found these babysitters what has worked for me. Is that put an ad and I do. The paid subscriptions communicate and then in that ad. I put very specific things about what I'd like them to respond with. Please respond with number one. Your availability number. Two like two references. Unlike number three time you can meet with me like that's pretty simple right and yet. Most people cannot follow the instructions to respond with those things. So I'm like okay. We're done we're done here. You could follow my instructions on the ad you just sent clearly a copy and pasted thing. About how you WanNa work because you love children but you didn't answer my question so that's a really nice filter on that seems to work. And then you know. I set up interviews. I have a friend so I set up for interviews for a few weeks ago and I will admit to them just cancelled. One of them just cancelled in ghosted. One of them Sent me a text like five minutes before the start and was like sorry never mind and then the other two showed up like beautifully on time professionally dressed like darkness. Good yes Contacts in fact both of them at least one of them like sent me a text like just just letting him on way like just like fully and then I knew they were professionals. The other thing I really liked too is if if this is not to hire someone for primary job but like for these babysitting short little gigs. If you find someone that's hired by an organization you know like one of ours is working for a government organization locally. I kind of know that they're not a government. Organization is not going to hire like someone with criminal record or major issues in. If I can find out that they've been there for a couple of years. It's a nice setting processes well to make me feel safe and secure. I feel less scared about like I know. There's a lot of angst when your child or very little They can't talk to you yet about what's going to happen but at least. I know I have an eight year old almost and so she'll tell me if someone's you know not great but I still feel much better knowing that okay. This person was vetted to work in a medical practice or to work at a daycare. Like they've been through background checks drug testing all that kind of stuff. Because I'm not necessarily GONNA have the the the ability to do that myself although through through carry dot com you John Various things. So that's that's a service you can look there's others to like sitter city. Nanno is an on demand one. There's there's a number of players in this space now that there weren't in the in the past in you had to go through if particularly if you're hiring full-time childcare. You had to go through Nanny Agency for instance which they still exist. You may wish to do that. But you know the people's mileage may vary with with them and I really like references so I I asked. I'm like I want phone number of someone you've worked for recently and I do call and usually you can tell instantly in that person's voice like Oh yeah. This is someone that they've trusted. I mean it's the same as a word of mouth wreck but I'll be honest. People are not always including myself so excited to share their favorite babysitters contact information They may want to dig their own date nights and they don't want you to pull them off the market every Saturday night. So that's why I N N I feel awkward asking for that reason because I don't want to steal someone else's best person when somebody has kids that are kind of aging out of the need for babysitter. That's a great time to ask like. Oh you've mentioned that you're leaving your Ten-year-old or twelve year old at home now like any babysitters that you love that you don't need any more that can be a window of opportunity.
Polish-American Sisters Cook Up Pierogi Profits
"Sisters. Casey and Vanessa White drew up in western Massachusetts spending the nineties. And he's working alongside their grandfather to make fresh pirogies for his Polish food store. If you're not familiar parochial are filled. Dumplings of central and eastern European origin made made by wrapping unleavened dough around savory or sweet filling and then cooking them in boiling water or sometimes pan. Fry when Casey and Vanessa weren't making the parochial the dish. I was also a staple at their family dinner table. After the sisters got to college in Boston they realized they had taken so much for granted. beantown was perogie deprived arrived. When their Momma visit would hand deliver amazing homemade pirogies much to the envy of their new friends? The siblings knew that if anyone was going to do something about the pirogi void in Boston. It would be them. They began to cook. In Vanessa's kitchen. There was friends became oil tests subjects. Who would fill out forms after they try the dumplings things to give feedback? After about six months. Casey in Vanessa had perfected their recipe. They decided to try selling delicious dumplings local farmers markets but but before they did that they needed to get a retail permit to do that. They had to have a professional kitchen to cook their perogie. San Weren't sure what to do. The sisters weren't ready to invest the money money into opening up in industrial kitchen. So it was time to get creative. They began to search for a story that day or two a week. That wasn't using their commercial kitchen. Aw I figured that. They the aspiring perogie chefs could provide another small business with an opportunity to make a little extra money all while solving their own problems. They reached out to a local butcher shop. That didn't use their kitchen on Sundays to see if they could pay rented out their hunch was right. The butcher shop agreed and Casey Vanessa check their license with that. The women began to prepare for their first farmers market. They rented out the kitchen for one hundred. Twenty five dollars then cooked close to three hundred pirogies. They froze them and the following Saturday showed up to the farmers market with fifty boxes full of six parochial each. They call their booth judge you. Peruzzi after the phonetic phonetic pronunciation of grandfather in Polish and completely sold out all fifty boxes within the first hour at a price of eight dollars a box. All the confirmation. They needed every week after that. They sold perogie on Saturday. And then cook a new batch for the following week on Sunday. This was their routine for a year. Finally got to the point where they couldn't couldn't grow their business anymore while working fulltime jobs they had more demand than if you keep up with new. It was time to take elite with the extra time. The sisters were able to dive into their business. They found more customers by being everywhere they could as often as they could. Casey and Vanessa attended more. Farmers markets went to festivals in popped up at breweries. They were also active on facebook and instagram. As time went on they ended up investing in their own three thousand square foot kitchen and with that their production skyrocketed rocketed. They now make an average of get this twelve thousand parochial week which they sell it over. One hundred specialty stores around New England got their product on so many shelves simply by being persistent they would drop off samples stores and keep calling until that story either put in an order or told him to stop. Oh they've been able to sustain lives as perogie pioneers carrying on tradition keeping their grandfather's name alive and constantly learning meanwhile customers I get to hear about their Polish traditions emotional ties to the food while enjoying those delicious dumplings. Of course what's next. The sisters have two words more Dr Parochial. They claim to keep judge parochial. Going for as long as they can

The top doing this so you just got of course all the awards you have. Now you have a new nomination as best supporting actress for Richard Jewel for me. Ah The best award for this movie has been the fact that bobby jewel richards mom who's still alive Loves the movie. Because if she didn't now I know Gosh 'cause in the movie you know how she got Tom Brokaw. I know I know I know. We don't want her to be getting mad. Now you know and also You know there have been Statues in Centennial Park and young and Billy Payne who brought the Olympics to Atlanta. And finally there's going to be a a plaque with Richard's name and what did he say. Oh well that's a good thing should set that up or you should. Why should I work really really? Yeah that's it no Richard Jewel. That's the name of the movie. Clint Eastwood directed at but a true story. Can you tell us a little about Richard J. Just absolutely Richard had been a cop for a few years and then resigned or was fired depending on how you look at it. And then he we went to become a guard at at A college nearby and he got leftover the the thing with Richard that I found so tragic about this whole story story is that he was this hyper vigilant person. Ever since he was a kid at nine of the police the police even as a kid eight in church he wanted to help people And even in Turkey would run around and make sure everybody had a program and then later on when he was a cop he carried like one one hundred thirty pound you know battering Ram but he also had beanie babies for the kids who he might find who had been in accidents so he could give him he was is just this generous simple humble kind man who wanted to help everybody and it was that vigilance that Helped him in his job. He was hired to be a security guy for the Olympics. They were calling everybody in and he was at the sound and light tower and and he'd gone off to the restroom and he came back and there was a bench there and he noticed right away there was what they call an Alice. Pack this big military pack the officious very suspicious and so he told the sit idle like that and they say oh. Come on Richard he said no no I have a bad feeling and they so they brought in the bomb guys and he described it that the the guy went underneath and looked at it and then he just froze and he just back very slowly out and he told his buddy to turn turn a cell phone off and they tried to get everybody back as many people back but through a series of mishaps and nine one one calls and not being able to get in touch touch with people Eric Rudolph who actually planted the bomb and was not caught until like six years later Had this phone message You know there's going to be a bomb in Centennial Park in thirty minutes and thanks to Richard got all that is out of the tower. He was running up and down with doing everything everything a hand and suddenly he became this hero in and then for three days three days and his mother was all got that three day. Yeah my mom his his mom he's on TV. He's bets right he's on. TV is the hero of the day if CNN wanted to talk to him and what turned out was there was a leak from the FBI to Cathy scruggs at the Atlanta Journal Constitution and they decided to break the story and overnight they everybody turned against him and said he was the he was the guy he exempts Mama Except Momma. She was there for him she was they were very very close. She had two miscarriages ages and Richard was her only child and Both his real dad and his step step dad banished from their lives for various. The reasons and So he was her child her boy you know and she knows she knows how he can be be overzealous knows the things that he shouldn't be doing. You trust the police so much too much that it cost him by they use. This is what was so cruel colon. I remember when I started out working with Clint. We were all there to meet with him and I said why do you want to do this movie. And he said because I think it's an American tragedy and he said this is a story that people need to see Jon Hamm was down in Atlanta and people said well what are you doing down here. And he said Oh it's about the bombing and Oh yeah that guy. Richard Jewell who was the bomber summer. Because there's some suspicion and for eight days without any evidence People camped out you know media the FBI suspected in even when they brought him in for his first interview they already had a cell for him. Yeah we like him for this. That's what they always say. Yeah because the public. Everybody's demanding to know who did this. There's that desire. Why are to get somebody up there and say he did it well? There were millions and millions of dollars resting on this because of the Olympics and they had to get it sorted say it's nineteen ninety-six on this is happening so we weren't even in the big cellphone period of the everything was just taking off and don't forget we'd had waco the Federal Building we had Ruby Ridge. We had ninety three Truck Bombing World Trade Center so it was the beginning of the new normal ordinarily of this terrorism. And and it's that going. That's that seesaw. From we love you to stay away from us. I think that the real tragedy and I'm sure that this is what bobby default is that the very quality that enabled him to find that bomb his vigilance. They turn that into a liability And they beat him up with it that to me I think is just the tragedy of all. We'll one amazing scene that you have among renting in this is when bobby went on national. TV making a plea to President Clinton at the time yes to see what's happening and do something for some. Yes so let's look a little bit attack okay. My son is innocent. Richard is not the Olympic the big park bomber. He saved people's lives. Please hear me Mr President and help me. My son is a hero. If they do not intend to charge my son. You please tell us. Please tell the world Mr President. Please clear heartbreaking. Breaking it is is really is. I don't know how many times you had to do that. Well actually we got it in the first take. That's so clint into eastwood is fresh and real. Whenever I've been on a set of this it's always let's move on now but you know people say that the do said I J do when you're always think it's going to be quick but it's not that he takes his time and he leaves it open and it so efficient that he doesn't need need to do more than a couple of takes? Is this your first time with Clint Eastwood. Absolutely absolutely what was that like was a nervous wreck I was a nervous wreck. Check it I I and I think we all were because we all wanted to just I mean we all WanNa do our best all the time. But when you're with someone like client or Mike Nichols just you really and I think we also felt a real responsibility to bobby she survived. Of course she's still alive. And and Richard passed away ten years later he was thirty three when this happened and He got some money CNN NBC you know. They sued them and but the Atlanta Journal Constitution never accepted responsibility for it and the real. FBI Guy who's played by. I Jon Hamm went to his grave saying this guy did it. We see that teen in the movie where he says I still think yeah even when somebody else has confessed knowing it. That's the kind of thing. Well it's a movie that is pretty hard basically on the media and on the feds. It's really saying that in a world where we're supposed to trust certain things we've lost it you know that was nineteen ninety. Six things are worse now. Well and I think it's important to realize is that they just got it wrong and they were in such a rush to try and say the Olympics. That had really. This was only the second day I think it'd be Olympics and and So that was really driving it. And I don't WanNa paint it with two broader brush because look more than ever we need the truth from the press more than ever we I need the truth from the FBI. You know the government we depend on those institutions so that was very specific to this case and I hope people people don't feel that we're just trying to malign those institutions. What does Clinton do when after take? He's happy with it. Well this is what I love of about him and and I didn't realize this is that he just lets the camera. Keep going and we just keep going The scene may be done. I mean our lines. May It'd be done. But we just keep improvising and just continuing to live in that situation and he gets a lot of great stuff that he can use and it's also an opportunity for us to have more time together to experience the chargers together especially nowadays when you don't have rehearsal time you're you'd have your as my friend. Jessica Tandy God rest or used to say your kitchen work nowadays. You have to do your kitchen or in your kitchen you know at at home alone so it's great to have that it's been working. Well when he was when Clinton was here last he was saying that he hates movies. Where the director will say? Hey you know because he said I'm really quiet about it. I just go go when you're ready when you're ready. Just do something I also heard about. I don't know if this is is apocryphal. Or not was when he was doing Spaghetti Westerns and they would scream action the worst would at all also in TV. You know it's just also crazy. The and I think that's when he he developed his style he thought you know. Wait a minute. Everybody's just rushing in and getting it wrong and rushing and getting it wrong again and he just wanted to keep it real simple simple. He says when you're ready people going like this and I remember the first time adequate seen merge running downstairs in Iran into the sound guy who are really liked and I was was trying to speak French Dami said and I thought I thought the scene was over. You know and then that's when I realized it's not over till it's over it until he says it's yeah that's got it he also has. Can I just say he has an amazing cameramen Stephen Campanella he's he's been with them for twenty five years like many of the people on the crew. It's like a family and he just knows how to tell that story with the camera and one of my favorite shots and Clint's to win when the FBI are there. And you see Richard putting his blue gloves on and we've been telling him and telling them not to help the police and then it pans over to salmon. I just standing there looking at him. Like he's never gonNA stop. You know you just wants to throttling. But whatever he's doing he's doing great eighty nine now. Yeah he's still sexiest. Hell you go see. And you've turned that he is. He is sexy telling you. Imagine what it'd be like when he's ninety at like good wine. Everything is perfect to do. Well you you've worked with so many people you know Mike Nichols and primary primary colors. He's somebody I missed tremendously. He's not only a great director but he's just one of the smartest most fun people people that ever lived on this earth. Yeah I agree I remember. I was at an awards thing I think it was the EMMYS and and I lost you know and like about half an hour later. I get this text for Mike. Saying you're among one of my favorite actors I've ever worked with and I thought well that's it dude. I know it's like how lovely of him to do that. In that moment it is but he was right well he was well. It was one of the high points of my life to work with him. I and with that
"A person could easily fill hours of airtime talking about bizarre mating habits of animals from the white spotted pufferfish that draws intricate patterns in the Sandy Ocean floor to attract a mate to the spotted hyena females. WHOSE PSEUDO PENIS which is sometimes larger than the males actual penis is also their birth canal note? Today we're going to focus on the latter two thirds of the process just station or incubation and firth even limiting the topic. There's still a lot. I won't don't get to like how certain reptiles determine the sex of their offspring with the exact temperature in their nests. The station period of animals animals is a matter of scale. The larger an animal is the longer it takes to make a new one despite the resources of the mother being large as well if all the dimensions Shinzo a given animal were doubled. That animal would now have eight times the fall you owing to the square cube rule and hence eight times the wheat of before four but the thickness of the umbilical cord through which all of the growth nutrients flow will only be four times as large so all else being equal it. It would take twice as long for the necessary nutrients to go through if you WANNA get super math nerdy about it and you're welcome to the volume and therefore wait of an animal is proportionate to the cube of the scale Cisco is proportionate to the cube root of the weight of the animal. I read it but I don't understand it. We can scale back on the maths a bit by looking at examples. Humans have station period forty weeks one week short of nine months while humans best friend has the station period of two months. For small animals like rabbits. The period is about one month and for mice about three weeks. The metal for shortest shortest station of a North American mammal goes to the possum which finishes pregnancy soup to nuts in under two weeks. This may have less to do with their size than the fact that their average life span is only about three years so replacements are needed constantly. Elephants are pregnant for a long time like really really long ninety five weeks in fact almost two years. This marathon baby building is one reason that female elephants elephants usually don't have more than four cavs in their whole lifetime. Who's got the time? A giraffe needs almost fifteen months to form. It's one hundred fifty pound founder. Sixty eight kilo baby which starts life off with a bang draft skipworth standing up so it is during air for babies to fall six feet or or two meters to the ground in the process of being worn there are exceptions to are easy to follow. Big babies means long pregnancy guidelines. Of course I one hundred injured and ten pound or fifty kilo. Hippo is ready to debut and only eight months even faster than a seven pound human baby. Black bears are pregnant for thirty weeks but they're cubs only weigh about one pound or half a kilo. One thing that this list of station periods can't take into account are pregnant pauses causes by which I mean pausing pregnancies. That's right some animals have the ability to say you know what now is not a super great time for let me to have babies. Let me just hold the embryo. And Its tracks and turn my uterus into Sifi stasis chamber while I wait for conditions to improve since it was discovered discovered in the eighteen fifties more than one hundred and thirty species of mammal have been found to have this ability. The pause called Dia pause conveniently can last anywhere between a couple of days and up to a year in most species. This happens when the embryo is still a tiny ball of less than one hundred cells. Does that has yet to attached to the uterus. Pausing pregnancy isn't the sole domain of any one class or family. It's found in certain kinds of bats bears Seals rodents deers and armadillos among others. More than a third of the species that take either during the station are found from the capital of strange nature. Australia of the twenty or so species of kangaroo and Wallaby combined there are only three that can't pas a pregnancy Mitzi in fact it's the Timbre Wallaby that can put embryos on hold for up to eleven months. There were few mechanisms at work here. Some animals most made right after giving birth. It's like a backup plan in case something happens to the newborn if nothing bad happens in. The newborn is nursing the physical taxation of lactation lactation stalls the understudy fetus once the extant offspring is weaned. The fetus begins developing again. The second way is to pause every pregnancy until the time is right usually to do with the weather for example minks mate around the start of March but put the embryos on pause until after the spring spring equinoxes when the days are getting longer in the northern hemisphere this ensures that the young are born in spring when food will be more plentiful than the temperatures more mild. Some are bitterest animals will pause pregnancies in times of drought hoping that the rain will come back to get plant life growing again. The TAMRA wallaby combines these two methods to ensure that the Joey is ready to leave the pouch in spring rather than the middle of a Hot Australian Summer Dia Pause was first identified in eighteen fifty. I four after hunters in Europe. Notice that pregnancy in Rodier seem to last a lot longer than in other types of deer since then scientists have been fascinated by this process. And it's helped us understand more about basic reproductive processes in all mammals but how the process worked at the molecular level is still a mystery mystery until recently there seemed to be no connection between which speech these use it in which didn't and there didn't seem to be a unifying mechanism for how the pregnancy was caused. Even the hormones controlling dia paws are different between Mammal groups researchers in Poland were able to pause embryos in a sheep a non dipoto species by transferring them into a mouse uterus and then back into the sheep with no apparent ill effects this indicates. It's the potential for Dia. Pause could lie in mammals including humans but I would still take my birth control pill you would. Experiments would die. Applause could do you for us is to improve our understanding of how to make and select healthy embryos for in vitro fertilization as well as to create better stem cells that could be used the target cancers the first stem cells ever isolated by scientists came from a mouse embryo in diapers whether or not the pregnancy. Let's see was paused. Once the baby or babies come out they need to eat and for mammal babies. That means milk. A mother's milk contains a concoction of nutrients France fats proteins and carbohydrates that are essential for a baby's development as well as a cocktail of protective factors to effectively supply the baby with immune hyun system until it can develop its own all mammals produce milk but they don't all produce the same milk to give you a baseline for comparison before I start start throwing out numbers cow. Milk is about three and a half percent protein and five percent carbs while human milk is about one percent protein and seven percent and carbs and both are about eight percent water. You won't find much water. In the milk of the hooded seal. Their milk is more than sixty percent. Fat Thatch more like a premium milkshake than milk. This high fat milk is crucial for the seal pups born into the freezing waters of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. It's the PUPS also only nurse for about four days having been born on floating ice an environment that is both unstable and unreliable. So the seal Momma needs to pack a lot of energy dense fat into her milk. The pups consume over sixteen pounds or seven kilograms of milk every day. Their Body weight doubles in the first week of life. Conversely in the savannahs of Africa the Black Rhino has the skim milk going only about point the two percent fat they also nursed for almost two years which is only possible within milk given how many resources lactation demands

"Gold medal winner in the Real Olympics in women's tennis or the beautiful country of Puerto Rico. She's the first gold medal winner in the country's history and Actually the Marlins Park about a week after she won the gold medal. They invite her to throw out the first pitch.

A CAmpaign To End The Celebration Of New Years
"Welcome to the promised by gas. Brought to you on T. l. v. one the voice of the city whose worthies and Burgers in the nineteen thirties launched a campaign against the celebration of New Year's which in mandatory Palestine as in Modern Day Israel was known as Sylvester the name borrowed from Pope Sylvester the first thirty third pope of the Catholic Church who was buried and in the catacombs of Priscilla in Rome on December thirty first and who was beatified on December thirty first date became known as Saint Sylvester's Day or the Feast of Saint Sylvester which feasts came to stand for the reveries of the night dividing the last day of the year from the first day of the New Year in Israel as in Austria Italy Lee Bosnia Germany Slovenia Slovakia Switzerland Luxembourg left in China Poland and the Czech Republic France Croatia and probably elsewhere as well now on December remember twenty seven thousand nine hundred eighty four for instance. The paper hired-in reported that the city had been plastered with posters quote sponsored by the rabbinate and the the Hebrew community calling for residents not to celebrate this holiday Silvester as it is foreign to the spirit of Judaism they ask the owners of houses of pleasure and cafes not to rent their rooms for these purposes and quote Davar reported in the same year that deputy mayor Easter Iraq who fifteen years later would ascend to to mayor addressed the city council about quote the question of the holiday of Sylvester that is setting down roots in Tel Aviv. FEE proposal of Mr Rocca was accepted saying at the city council of Tel Aviv sees in the foreign custom of Sylvester celebrations a definitely unwanted thing which is in opposition to the spirit and traditions of the people title of Israel and asks all cafe owners and owners of large halls in the city not to organize Sylvester parties. A committee was chosen to speak with cafe owners owners etc about this matter and quote a year later in nineteen thirty five the municipality itself published this notice quote the city sees itself as obligated to remind owners of cafes and restaurants this year once again of the need to refrain from having public celebrations in honor of Sylvester Eve. This custom to celebrate the holiday of Sylvester believe in public Jewish circles in the Hebrew city harms the national lifestyle that is taking form in the land of our forefathers. This claim is aimed also at the General Oh public some of whom admittedly only a few make a practice of celebrating this holiday with debauchery and loud social parties obviously the municipality and the the citizens of the city will treat with respect anything undertaken and done in honor of this day by those residents of the city and their guests who are not Jewish for this is their holiday and quote in a year after that in one thousand nine thirty six of our reported after the fact that quote several cafes such as the Lawrence and Savoy had special holiday programs in Tel Aviv. There there were many private Sylvester parties mostly from the circles of immigrants from Germany until morning. There was much car traffic and many walking on foot. One of these people who return to his home home after midnight under the influence of alcohol startled the volunteer firefighters with a false report of a fire end quote in nineteen thirty nine. The paper beaucaire made its feelings things about known with a one line article with a banner headline on page three the article in its entirety. Read quote on Silvester Eve. Eleven people committed suicide in new. You Work and quote in one thousand nine forty. The religious paper hot so fat reported this quote I witnesses say that a man of Israel at midnight in Tel Aviv especially in the North would forget that he lives in his own nation and land semester celebrations were celebrated in several coffee houses Jewish houses in the Hebrew city and whomever was indies coffee houses which elevated the celebration to the top of the top and drinking and debauchery would forget that we live in times of emergency. The New Year by the general accounting is not for us. It's the Jews. But it is a New Year for trade and bills and money's silvester celebrations are not Jewish celebrations in the land of Israel. Especially and only those who became habituated to these celebrations collaborations in foreign lands the lands of assimilation fail to Wean themselves of this habit. Even after they pass through all the circles of hell they returned to their iniquity in the land of Israel Israel. These are just one chapter of the spiritual and moral decline that is evident in our public life especially in the first Hebrew city the glorious tel.. Ah Vive end quote now to celebrate. Silvester Twenty twenty in the glorious Tel Aviv. There were hundreds of events for instance one could welcome the New Year with the Abba Tribute Band Carney or or go to Cooley Alma for their annual gala. Three for one Christmas New Years Novi Bash the bootleg was hosting a centers party quote unquote the hostile hosted hip hop new year's breakfast on Rothschild had funke Meli and these were just a fraction of what was on offer so grand was the celebration that the municipality itself posted this on facebook from the legendary Tel Aviv. EDM Club the block quote mayor e high. I don't feel so good. I won't be coming into work tomorrow and quote quote this post from Iraq Tel Aviv Tel Aviv municipality itself. Yes there was the battery in the city. All right one could pretty much find any form of depravity ones. Momma might have worn one against save perhaps for the badgering bullying browbeating of the burgers. About how you really shouldn't go to a drag show on New Year's in the first Hebrew city in the Jewish state and arguing nothing captures the spirit of the city. Well Tel Aviv. Dafa better than a tradition reaching back. Almost ninety years of offsetting the ideological severity doctrinaire rectitude a to enforce the citizen of the hidden who ain't kidding of joyless Orthodox Zionism and greeting each new year. Hal each new day with playful exuberance heterodox selective Goya's and lots and lots of alcohol and seeing the first Hebrew city is a place not just for spiritual fulfillment but also for fun fun fun and more heretical. Still Bill Finding spiritual fulfillment in fun. Fun Fun with us. In the studio is the woman who's lovely prose is like a killer party and everyone's invited I speak of course of Alison gap and Summer Alison for Politico Than Republic foreign policy the Jerusalem posted. Jt the Ford and many other of your very best papers magazine is a columnist for Arts. You heard on. NPR PRI where I and the BBC and you've seen her on twenty four television and Al Jazeera TV and other places as well. She holds a World Centre Award for Journalism Recognizing Excellence and Diaspora reported anytime and rock our award for excellence and covering Zionism Eliane Israel. I was how was your Silvester. Oh very boring. I'm not a big New Year's eve person but it always takes me back to. When I first arrived in Israel in the nineteen eighteen eighty s and like most Americans had never heard of Saint Sylvester or New Year's Eve being referred to as Sylvester so when people started talking about Sylvester? What was the only Sylvester? I was familiar lady Birds Sylvester the cat. tweet neighbors I was like what are they crazy about the cartoons. I it took me a while to like and still now when I hear about Sylvester immediately that like cat face POPs. What's up in front of me? I thought I thought also in the studio with us as a man who is exhibit a rather than spiritual and moral decline in the city seems to be gaining in spiritual and moral seriousness through the generations. I speak of course of Os Zelter Zubeida Zelter writes and reviews books for arts including waiting just a week ago in the past he hosted a weekly show on TV on arts and culture in Israel and he is a political activist of passionate power charm and charisma insight and intelligence Ohad. Oh how is your Silvester. I was dancing on a wooden bar dancing on the bar. Because somebody in this room should have had a proper nears eve right now that's Great throughout my neck from dancing so hard I think that means that I partied as much as I could dance on your neck. No is is now painful because identity on my feet that that is a badge of honor. Yes angry my name is Owen. I don't meet the boasts upgraded the operating system on my phone last week and ever since I've been receiving hectoring messages about how I don't sleep enough and maybe it's time for me to go to sleep right now and how. I listened to an awful lot of podcast and oh I listen to my music. Too loud ended ended. I know that long term exposure to loud noise can be damaging to my hearing. And I really don't WanNa Brag about how I have maintained my youthful lifestyle
How Can I Help? Loving the Friend Who Has a Child With Special Needs
"Back to another episode of Risen Motherhood Hud I'm Laura Whistler and I actually have three guests joining me today you guys. This is going to be such an awesome show. It's one that I've looked forward to for a very long time today. I have with me of course. My sister-in-law Emily and then I also have Abigail Dodds and Katie Blackburn. These women are just amazing women that have become friends to me in real life and it's just a pleasure to be able to have them on the show today so I'm going to actually have them start by going around introducing themselves so you can hopefully fully start to learn their voice a little bit and then also have them let you know how many kids they have in total as you guys know. Today is a special show so I will also have up them. Speak about any of their kids that do have special needs and how old child is and kind of just some of the things that they're dealing with so emily. Why don't you give start? Okay yes Jensen I feel like. I don't have to totally. Yeah I have five children ages. Seven twins ends at our five Four year old and a two year old and it is my four year old son who has special needs and he has a rare genetic mutation. Dan That's extremely small and has only been known about for a few years and so there's not a lot of helpfulness and sharing the exact specific civic diagnosis but basically as a four year old he has you know Af oh braces on his ankles that help give stability to walk. He's is a transport. Wheelchair wheelchair does not walk independently. Much away from a walker at all and then right now. He's just pretty much non verbal so we do a lot of texts communications nations for those of you who are listening. It's like robbing pictures. Some signs but Yeah overall is pretty pretty pretty healthy but definitely a a lot of communication and physical challenges. Abigail yeah I'm Abigail duds Married to Tom and we also have five kids. Our oldest is is fifteen and she just got her learner's permit for driving. So that's exciting. Then it goes. Yeah yeah that's a whole different. Yeah yeah show that you could do some day but it goes down to. We have a son who's thirteen and then a daughter who's eleven and another daughter who's nine and then our youngest son is the one with special needs. He's five he'll be six probably when this show releases and His special needs in some ways similar in terms of the diagnosis. Just that we don't really have a real definitive one and whatever it is is not one that has been Tracked before what it looks like for his day to day. Life has just means kind of global developmental delay slower to walk slower slower to talk but he does do both of those things a lot and he. He's got a feeding tube so some of the parts of of his brain that are small. Just make things like swallowing and sleeping difficult. So yeah and seizures seizure disorder. So that's another big part of his of his special needs Katie. Yeah I'm Katie Blackburn and I also have five kids I don't think we did is but My oldest is six and a half and then I have a five year old and he was diagnosed with autism. His Um to when Just after his second birthday and then we have a three and a half year old and we just welcomed our forth biological Kohl titled Less than two weeks ago. So he's just downstairs sleeping right now and then we have a foster baby right now. Who is is nine months old? And so that kind of that that rounds out our crew but Our five year old image and he has autism and he is just the joy of our lives but his his challenges are primarily in Social interactions and then in communication. He's not nonverbal. But I'm pretty limited so emily we use lots of PECs to know. Just what but those are and they've been amazing. They're lifesavers actually for a child that struggled with communication and he's getting better he's learning lots more words and lots more sentences We do a lot of the same things in our house. A lot of repeating A lot of scripting lot of eating the same aim kind of five or ten foods so our our home life definitely has a a repetitiveness to it to just kind of help him feel comfortable and and like A. He has a somewhat predictable. Life but he's he's such a joy. He loves the school bus. He loves his friends at school and he loves his siblings so we learn a lot from him and yeah. I'm excited to be here to talk to you guys about this really really great topic today. Awesome well thank you guys offer sharing and for anyone. Who is new here kind of like what Emily said? I feel like I shouldn't have necessarily introduce myself. But just if you're new and haven't heard motherhood podcast before I'm I'm Laura and I have three kids so I'm the one out I need to get on that. I have a six year old four year old and a two year old so my two year old is the one who has has special needs and she has also something that doctors have never seen before. She's we've been told she's kind of the only one in the world who has what she has so we don't really have a a good road map for what will be happening. But she has some extra genes in her chromosomes. So this displays itself off in the other women shared kind of global developmental delays. And Right now. She's a scooter. She's bottom scooter and definitely on her way towards walking and we're really hopeful that she will walk and she's also nonverbal so it's kind of the way it exhibits for her okay so to dive into our show today. The first thing that I wanted to do for the benefit of our audience just let everybody know about a few weeks ago and this'll be like a couple of months ago once this show releases. We did a survey on risen in motherhood on our instagram account. In just asked our audience kind of where they are at and so these stats were really really interesting to discover and it. Maybe it'll just be interesting to you. See the makeup of our audience but thirteen percent of the risen. Other audience does have a child with special needs but seventy eight percent of our audience members know. Oh a fellow mom that does have a child with special needs and I thought that was just really interesting that like it seems like almost everyone is either personally affected with having a child with special. You'll need or they all know someone. So we're hopeful that today's show can just be really beneficial for so many of you in our audience. Not just for the Momma who is going through the Everyday Day with a child with special needs but also for those of you who want to support your friend in WanNa know how to love them and how to care for them well and the other interesting thing that we found out was that thirty one percent of MOMS who child with special needs don't feel supported by their church family. So that's something that we're going to talk about a little bit more specifically today how the church can help a family that does have a child with disabilities or special needs so that was just a stat that was sad not necessarily surprising but a hard stat to see so anyway. I think we'll just dive in here and we're GonNa let the conversation flow our hope. Is that you guys feel like you are sitting in a conversation with four MOMS Tom. Who are just being really candid? Invulnerable and honest about what it's like to raise a child special needs and how to just love a fellow mom who is in that spot so so for those women out there who may be are a little bit nervous or don't know what to say or how to move forward. I WOULD WANNA give them some more practical advice. I guess from from four Mama's who've been there let's just start with talking about how specifically can of friend support a mother or a family that does have a child with special needs. What have you guys seen done for you? Well on a super like practical level some of the most helpful questions for for whereas have been how can we include cannon in this. What places are easiest for you to get together And you know just the hint. Sometimes depending on the disabilities special needs families might need a place with fences or doors that lock or not a lot out of steps for easier access. You know things like that that it's not people aren't being selfish when they suggest that. Hey let's all go on a hike. They may just not realize that a backyard defense is probably more doable for families. But it's just I think it can be scary for people to ask that because they don't want want to bring attention to special needs in the wrong way or they don't want to hurt your feelings At all but just just keep asking those what how can how can we include and then what would be easiest for you guys today in this weather. Can you Even come out if it's the place that we're going to or this certain situation and that's been so kind and means the world to me when people say how can we include clued
A Brief History Of The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
"Rain stuff lauren. Boko bomb here on the fourth Thursday of the month the same day that most Americans gather around the dining table to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. The macy's Thanksgiving Day parade marches through the streets of New York City city elaborate floats giant helium balloons marching bands acrobats and celebrities create a carnival atmosphere for more than eighty years. The parade has has drawn spectators who lined the streets cheer on the participants covering two and a half miles. A three hour spectacle runs from nine. AM to noon. The holiday event has grown and grown over time from a small parade of floats and live animals organized by macy's employees into large-scale annual tradition to this day though apart from performing coming talent all other parade participants such as balloon handlers are macy's employees and their family and friends. The parade showcases more than eight thousand participants pence and crowds of more than three point. Five million spectators crammed Manhattan streets for close up view. Another fifty million watch the prayed on TV. So how did we you get here. macy's department store celebrates its one hundred and sixty first anniversary in two thousand nineteen store staged. Its first Thanksgiving Day parade in nineteen twenty twenty four that year it was called the macy's Christmas parade and it featured three floats pulled by horses. Four bands and zoo animals from the central park zoo including camels donkeys elephants and goats. Santa Claus was last in the lineup. A tradition that continues to this day it was all staged by end at the request. Request of macy's employees many of whom had just emigrated to America from Europe along to celebrate their new home in nineteen twenty seven the gigantic balloons. That are now. The signature element of the parade made their first appearance with the help of helium. The balloon replaced the zoo animals. That were frightening to some children and the first balloons included cartoon tune characters like Felix the cat at the conclusion of the parade. The giant balloons were released into the air in nineteen twenty eight. macy's began offering the one hundred dollar reward for any returned balloons which were fixed with the return address label in nineteen thirty one pilot. Colonel Clarence e chamberlain snagged a balloon with his airplanes wings leading to a ban on retrieval by airplanes the following year and after the nineteen thirty two parade another pilot attempted to capture a balloon in nearly crashed leading macy's to discontinue releasing the balloon loons at the parade's end in nineteen thirty four celebrities became an important element of the parade but senior actor. Eddie Cantor joining the event that year. The the Mickey Mouse Helium Balloon was also introduced that you're parade goers from nineteen forty two to nineteen forty four. The prey was cancelled because of the shortage of helium and rubber during world world. War Two those three years. The only time that the celebration has ever been called off when the prey returned nineteen forty five. It was broadcast on television for the first time time and was bigger than earlier versions. But the floats didn't achieve their current spectacle status until nineteen sixty nine when Manfred Bass began creating them best asked designed to them so that they could be flattened their trip through the Holland tunnel they were then reassembled during the predawn hours of the parade. Today macy's begins planning planning for the parade at least a year in advance and includes float and balloon creation celebrity booking volunteer coordination and training for clowns and balloon handlers. As the prayed it grows closer. The preparations get more intense in two thousand. Nineteen macy's celebrating. Its Ninety Third Parade with twenty six floats sixteen giant helium character balloons and forty heritage and novelty balloons and eleven marching bands. But let's talk about those balloons a former tootsie roll factory in Hoboken New Jersey just across the river from New York City. The balloons are created by the macy's parade studio. It all starts with a pencil sketch. Aerodynamic and engineering consultants assist calculations to make sure the balloon will fly properly exact scale replicas. One made out of clay and one painted model are fashioned before the actual balloon is cut out fabric. Each balloon. has several chambers and includes a zipper and inflation device and a high pressure valve flight. Inflation and deflation tests are run and cosmetic adjustments are made. Finally finally the balloon can appear in the parade up to a year after the process began balloons. These days are constructed of polyurethane though they used to be made of rubber since the switch from air to helium these behemoth balloons have coasted along with a big dose of help from Volunteer Balloon Wrangler. But it hasn't always been that easy to keep the balloons afloat. In nineteen fifty-eight the balloons were filled with air and hoisted by cranes onto trucks. Due to a helium shortage and poor weather conditions kept the balloon from being inflated at all in nineteen seventy one the balloons dimensions vary but most are about five six stories high and somewhere around sixty feet long and thirty feet wide. Each balloon needs around Ninety D.. Handlers in all their around two three thousand balloon handlers for the prayed these handlers must weigh at least one hundred and twenty pounds and be in good health of those only a few hundred team leaders are required to attend training though all are invited. Training includes lessons on dynamics geometry and physics then Blantyre's practice handling one of the big balloons on a field. The team leaders include an overall leader pilot captain and two drivers a police officer marches with each balloon own handlers. Hold the ropes to guide the balloon and each balloon is also tethered to two eight hundred pound. Utility vehicles instruments that measure the speed of wind. called called a Momma's I think are mounted on Poles at key points along the route and each one is monitored with a portable computer by a police officer in a New York City office of Emergency Management Representative. Well before the prayed begins objects that could obstruct balloons including arms of lamp posts traffic signal. Polls streetlights and trees are either altered or removed on the eve of the parade. The balloons and floats are brought. To New York City. Setup begins by six. AM Thanksgiving Day. The balloons and floats are ready to go. And prayed. Great participants take their places for the nine. AM prayed start. After the parade floats are mmediately disassembled. Balloons deflated. An all returned to their warehouse in hoboken again.

Implanting Memories in Birds Reveals How Learning Happens
"Surrounded by human language always listening and processing. Eventually they put together to produce a daddy or a momma but what is still elusive to neuroscientists is exactly how the brain works to put it all together to begin to figure it out. A team of researchers turned to the frequent standing for human infants when it comes to language learning the song learning. Zebra finch. What we've known for about seventy years or so? That songbirds songbirds learned their song. By first forming a memory of their father song or another adult song and then they use that memory in order to guide their song learning. neuroscientist Todd Roberts from the UT southwestern medical center in Texas it's been in Long term goal of feel. Try to figure out how Where in the brain this this memory is this form of learning in this type of imitative learning the urge to? It's very similar to the type of learning that we engage in on a regular basis particularly when one more young. We use this type type of learning to guide our speech. Learning Roberts and his team had a hunch at the interface between sensory areas and motor areas in the brain was is critical for this process and they zeroed in on a group of brain cells called them and I F- in order to to really prove that we were on the right track and that we could identify these circuits. We thought that maybe we could go in and see if we can implant a false memory to do it. The researchers triggers use a technique called OPCO genetics. I used a virus to cause the neurons in the birds. Nif to become sensitive to light then using a tiny electrode as a flashlight they activated the neurons. The length of each pulse of light corresponded with the amount of time the neurons would fire and the birds brains interpreted that time period as the length of each note soon enough the birds began to practice the notes they had learned even though they had never really really heard the sounds in the first place. The songs these birds began to sing wouldn't win any prizes. But amazingly the birds produce them in the correct social situations the researchers say. This is the first time anybody has pinpointed. Part of the brain necessary for generating the sorts of memories needed to mimic sounds. The study was in the journal Science. This line of research is going to help us start to identify where in the brain we encode memories of pertinent social experiences that were used to guide learning and we know that there are several developmental disorders and people that how really profound effect on this morning.

What do you tell people the key to getting on a debt, I would say for me to different things motivation, and contentment as well, obviously contentment had a lot to do with it, because it was hard for me to move in with his family, and I was kind of worried about that, and how it would go obviously, but then, you know giving up my own kitchen and my own home.
