So even if the temperature starts dipping, which once the rain and the new front comes in, it's supposed to be a little bit of cooler. I'm not concerned with the air temperature because the ground is more right again. Be 80 degrees again. Today that ground is Staying warm itself, but unfortunately, it's staying dry. So if you want to get that yard work done, go ahead and do it. It's just, you know, be prepared.

"mother nature" Discussed on Plantrama
". L. Let's get into our main segment, , which is preserving herbs drying freezing bringing inside how do we do it at this time of year, , most people have abundance of all types of herbs. . What are we going to do with them? ? A lot of it depends on how you plan to use your herbs and how often you plan to use your herbs drying. . Certainly, , the easiest for most people, , but a dried herb is only going to be really delicious and fresh for about a year maybe a little bit more. . But if you feel that you're going to use your herbs up in a year and the next year, , you'll dry a whole new crop I. . Think. It's . a great way to go because it's very simple now. . Of course I have a dehydrated, , which is like my right arm I would be so sad if I had to give that up and the reason I like it is because it let's me set the temperature at which I want to dry my herbs. . A lot of people want to do dry herbs in they're oven or in their microwave, , which is very. . Possible, , but at temperatures over ninety five degrees Fahrenheit you lose a lot of the volatile oils and that's what gives you the wonderful flavor. So . I recommend a dehydrated where you can set the temperature or simply hanging them in a cool dry place in your home or putting them out between two screens in the shade and trying to dry them at lower temperatures. . Now answer this for be Ellen. . Do you think that there are some herbs that dry better than others? ? Yes. . I know dried rosemary is really very similar to fresh rosemary, , right but what about parsley or Basil Parsley dried just don't just don't even do it just don't Basil. . I would say my best word to describe dry basil is Ma-. . It's. . It's maybe better than no basil but maybe not better than no basal but for things like Rosemary yes and Oregano shore and time and summer savory and sage a lot of these. . Herbs Dry wonderfully and maintain a really great flavor if they are properly but for things like parsley and Basil. . GonNa have to go with the freezing bleaching freezing. . You do a lot of freezing and oil and broth chew I freeze them several ways, , and I'm so glad that you started out by saying how you're going to use the herbs because I have here on my notes which we haven't talked about ahead of time I I started out by writing how are you going to? ? Because, , if you if you freeze your herbs in olive oil, , you're not gonNA use those in like a cocktail right for that you might do it in water. . But if you if you on a low fat diet and you want to use your herbs in a soup, , you might freeze them in some kind of broad off. . So yeah think about how you're going to use your herbs and that'll that'll get you started and I actually freeze them in. . Several ways for example, , I will take my chives, , Parsley chives. . That's another good one. . It doesn't. . It doesn't dry well, much , younger freezing. . So those I will do some that just chop them up and put them in a bag fresh in in the freezer. . I don't them just put them in fresh, , and then I use them a handful right out of the freezer and those I tried to use up within about six months, , which is basically through the winter. . And then in the spring. . Plant new plants and start over again. . So I do them that way and yes, I , will do a lot of them in oil I. We . will chop up Basil in olive oil we will chop up parsley and olive oil sometimes I will do a mixture of herbs in oil and I will freeze them in Kinda little dollops on wax paper. . And their cube trae you could you could do it on an ice cube tray, , and then once they're frozen, , you can put them. . You know in a plastic bag so that then I can just grab a tablespoon of this basil and olive oil puree or parsley or a mix of the two. . CILANTRO is a good one for doing that as well. . Yeah. . Not a good one for drying. . Cilantro think it has any flavor but I blanch mine. . I because. . I found especially something like Basil if I don't that the color of the frozen or abyss particularly attractive and it doesn't matter if I'm going to use it for you know baking a chicken but if I'm to use it in a Pesto or something where the color is actually GonNa, , show I like to Blanchet because then that preserves some of the green and it's not just brown I use the ones that are not blanched getting thrown into cooking it's getting put in a pasta sauce. . So the colored is moving into soup. . That's right. . So it doesn't matter that they're more of a dark black green than they are. . Right. . The. . Fresh. . Green you mentioned at the beginning, , you said drying freezing or bringing them inside, , and I've got to say I have almost never succeeded the way I want to succeed with overwintering herbs inside I've tried it and I've gotten a couple of months and maybe something like Rosemary will actually carryover for a while but you know those herbs that need like Sun Sun. Sun . The Oregano the Basil I've always been disappointed with how they've performed indoors even in my sunniest window. . Well, , I do keep a rosemary from year to year quite successfully but here's what I was thinking when I, , when I was thinking of bringing inside I'm wasn't thinking of carrying them necessarily through the winter. . I was thinking of bringing the pot inside putting it in whatever kitchen window you have not with the idea of taking it through the winter but with the idea of keeping it alive as you use it up right there in the kitchen.

"It rains. It catches it now and puts it down into the turf allows the term to breathe better. It would be like you get your feeding to your lawn. When you get done. Court already. Trust me this you can't over coronary spring and fall of great falls, probably the best time. It's a little bit of work. There's no doubt this thing is this thing is pretty big, and it's self propelled. But it's a little bit of work. But it is truly well worth doing. I got Yeah, that's um That's great advice. I mean, something I'm absolutely considering doing this year. So I'll think of you when I'm out there cracking grandkids, the dogs running around all the time compacting the soil. This is a great way to open him back up against you. And you mentioned it to you know some of the stuff you can stick in the ground cabbage, kale, things like that for this time of year, but to fall really is a great time. Putting bulbs and even planting trees. If you're thinking about really changing the way your home presents or doing different stuff in your beds, this is a great time to get out there and put new stuff in the ground. You know, Spring is always the big selling time because everybody's been in the wind, you know, in a household with winter and all that kind of stuff, But fall truly comes down to being the best time for planting Most trees, shrubs, evergreens, whatever may be. The reason being is basically this as they shut down going into the fall season. They start to develop roots and they develop more roots in September, October, November and generally into December than any other time the rest of the year. So when you plant the fall, it's cooler. If he's around you and me and the plants Mother Nature helps you water men, and they get a jumpstart on rooting. So next spring, when they come back the life they have already started to root into the ground. So you got a little jump start on there. So falls an absolutely great time to get out and do all this planning. Don't throw in the trial. Don't do that. Get back out there and continue to plan Well, it's easy for me to keep going because I got a lot of plants that are still producing. You know, my wife found a couple of nice zucchini bread recipes on DSO. We're I mean, we're picking zucchini almost daily. We've got patty pan squash, other squashes. Our pumpkins. We would just tried a bunch of different ones this year because you know, we always try to have a couple of big ones like for Jacko lanterns but want to just do some like little ones for decorations and things like that, and they're really starting to look good, So I'm excited as we get into fall about all the stuff that's still coming on. Yeah, and again, you know, we talked about this before. If you plant Lee cross like the Asian Green's the collards root crops like onions and radishes and things like that, If you put a little hoop house over the top, a little bit of plastic covering or broke up top You could extend that season right into Thanksgiving and sometimes even into December because you keep it just warming up for the school cross to continue on you like cilantro and always have a hard time growing because it likes cooling weather. Now's the time to plant cilantro, so lots of things you could do to extend it right into the holiday season. So you know there's still plan to do in that vegetable garden. No doubt about it. You're the man run. Great information will listen for more. Saturday morning, Ron Wilson there started in the garden with run on.

"Which is achieves the same effect the the break is healed. But how is magnificently different? And this is one of those things will I will. I should say that podcasts are one of my favorite things because. I can bring them with me wherever I am. This is one of those where I wish I could magically pop out of your audiences. Costs Device and start waving my hands in the air. because. This is one of those picture worth a thousand words, kinds of things, but let me do my best. The other way to repair a break. is to find an unbroken identical DNA molecule. And a literally do a control c control V. Right. Call P pay. The missing genetic information. From an unbroken intact normal temperature. Now where on Earth does Mother Nature have an unbroken intact template? Will actually. Many of your cells currently have such a template in fact, your skin cells, your your bone marrow cells, your her of your intestine and your mouth. Anytime cells divide they have to call the DNA. And therefore. Mother Nature Copies one of your chromosomes makes an identical copy. And say one of those ways in which geneticists have come up with nomenclature that is the bane of existence of old pre medical students on planet earth. Is that identical copy of DNA is not called a twin which would new logical. It's called sister. I can explain why It's one of those terms that really should be retired but never will. We just have to live with it. Okay. So yes, in all ourselves that divide every piece of DNA is flanked by an identical copy, which unfortunately is called a sister. So Mother Nature of this beautiful pathway if one chromosome is broken. The Baroque an end. Literally, it's very sweet. It's it's actually the sex kind of warm and fuzzy it. There's this little broken end and it searches it truly performs a search like waiting its little molecular hand around and somebody healthy. And what's searching for it is searching for a molecule, a DNA molecule of identical sequence. And when it finds it, it automatically assumes that is the sister molecule that is it's Kim. It's identical. And nature than evolved away to copy paste. The information at the break. From the sister chromosome into the broken one and he'll. He'll the break. I know that's a lot to take him.

How Do Squirrels Organize Their Nuts?
"If you've ever watched squirrels going about their squirrel business, you may have wondered whether there's any method to their for lack of a better term not madness. It turns out there very well may be. Brain steps Christian Sager here despite how common North American tree squirrels are in many cities, neighborhoods, outdoor spaces. A big misconception exists about these little critters tree squirrels store their food tree fruit like acorns in their nests or dense to snack on all winter. Here's the thing they actually don't do that I. It's to know that both the eastern gray and eastern. Fox. Squirrels Dine on a varying menu of seeds, nuts, acorns, tree buds, berries, leaves, parts of Pine Cones, and other food some of us well, we don't like to think. About like bird eggs and nestlings and as well you know they'll have the occasional slice of found pizza. Some of that stuff they eat right away the rest they take to the nest or den for later. But when winter approaches squirrels faced with a challenge, they know instinctively that food sources will soon be scarce. So they gather all the food they'll need while also keeping themselves fed day today. That's why they're so busy in the fall when mother, nature has made sure that all the acorns have phone from the trees second. Gray and eastern. Fox squirrels are scatter hoarders, which means pretty much what it sounds like they hoard their food and then scatter it in locations where they can easily access it. That's usually close to the tree holding their nest or den, but they often expand into areas of seven acres or two point eight hectacres in rather than leaving their goods above ground where other squirrels can steal them, they bury them and this is called cashing about an inch maybe two point five centimeters under the soil and squirrels are known to crack open a nut before burying it so they can. Keep it from germinating when it comes time to eat they forage for the nuts they buried while squirrels possess a strong sense of smell which allows them to sniff out nuts from under a blanket of dirt researchers have long noticed evidence of strategic intelligence in the placement of their food. For instance, one study in two thousand eight reported that eastern gray squirrels engage in what's called deceptive cashing. They dig a hole pretend to throw the acorn in while they hold it in their mouth then it cover up the empty hole and run off to another secret stash place and they do. This it was suggested to fool other squirrels who might be watching them, but a new study from professors in the Department of Psychology at the University of California Berkeley and published in the September issue of the Journal. Royal Society of Open Science claims that tree squirrels use a pneumonic technique called spatial chunking to sort out and bury their nut scores by size type and perhaps nutritional value and taste. Now, when they're hungry later it's theorized they can remember where to find what they want in other words. The squirrels put specific nuts in similar places to help them remember what nuts were. Wear I e almonds were placed in one general area hazelnuts and another and I guess pizza would go and a third area. This pneumonic strategy has also been seen in rats. The finding researchers writing the studies show that a scatter hoarder could employ spatial chunking during cash distribution as cognitive strategy to decrease memory load and hence increase accuracy of retrieval squirrels have got a lot to think about in other words they need all the memory tricks they can get. So the next time you see a squirrel digging up not know that she might have just found the exact one she was.

The Ancient Ones
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries I'm your host kit chrome. Today we're GONNA take a look at a mystery at mystery at least as deep as Amelia earhart. What happened to the honesty Indians? The honest are originally from Siberia during the Ice Age what became native Americans crossed over a land bridge it appeared because of the low sea level. The Ana Sasi tribe eventually settled in what is now era sonal well, maybe not how they were a native American culture flourishing in southern Colorado and Utah and northern New Mexico and. From about one hundred ad whose descendants are considered to include the present day puddle people I dug a little deeper and discovered that the name on a Sasi means ancient wants doesn't make sense. The Apache were given that name Apache by their enemy if it's true that the. Came over from Siberia or existed in what is now American southwest around one hundred ad as some speculate than it is doubtful that they would have called themselves the ancient ones but what's in a name and what happened to them? This was not some small tribe in the eighteen eighties when many of their dwellings were found on the face of Mason, they were dubbed cliff-dwellers. Many of the dwellings were over six hundred feet up and built into sheer cliff faces. Some were a dozen stories high and consisted of over eight hundred rooms. There were grain rooms rooms for dining rooms for sleeping today's and estimated that the on Sasi numbered about thirty thousand, one theory dates, their disappearance between six hundred and thirteen hundred ad again, what happened to them perhaps like the Mayans they migrated were simulated the Zuni, the Hopi Indians? Oh, today believed that theory one Hopi elder explained about a thousand years ago. The elderly reportedly said, the Pueblo was visited by savage strangers from the north. The villagers treated the interlopers kindly but soon, the newcomers devastate their farms and that is why they began to build their homes high up in the cliffs. Okay. That explains why they lived in cliff dwellings still what happened to them? Where did they go contemporary scientists think that life was pretty good for the ancient ones why then did they end up abandoning their magnificent agriculture and permanent homes to migrate hundreds of miles and seemingly lose their cultural identities and Hopi Land Suny. And the Pueblos the upper real `grande, oral histories of the Hopi Zuni Pueblo people as well as scientific findings suggest that the exodus from places like Jaakko and Mesa Verde may have been. Family by family or clan by clan and may have occurred over a hundred years. Scientists suggest that things like poor sanitation should pass. An environmental degradation may have caused on Sasi to move think for a minute of a cliff face village six, hundred feet off of valley floor with eight hundred rooms where the residents for maybe five hundred people where did the sanitation factor play out? It would have been an awful long descent to use a local capital unlike the hokum people to the south on a saas he did not build huge irradiation canals on a Sasi diversion and collection of national precipitation was not irrigation in the usual sense in general their dry land farming. On the natural blessings of rain and runoff melting snow often they helped mother nature by building check dams, terracing hillsides. So locating fields near the mouth of royals springs one of the largest of their water conservation efforts was a five hundred thousand gallon reservoir at Mesa Verde after poring over dozens of documents and stacks of books I realized that no one has come up with an answer of what happened to the thirty thousand plus on a saucy unlike a lot of ancient civilizations left scrolls and etchings on the walls on saucy left nothing. So where did they information? We have on these cliff waller's come from to Colorado. Cowboys are said to discover the magnificent cliff towel structure at Mesa Verde. On a bitterly cold day in December eighteen, eighty eight, the male members of the ranching family soon became amateur archaeologists, digging gathering selling pottery weapons, tools, and other artifacts mostly to museums even without formal training, they were able to identify major distinctions in the pottery they found and conclude that different sites were occupied during different time periods in the late twentieth century the melting of more sophisticated scientific techniques and contemporary native American Indian knowledge has dramatically increased. Our understanding these people for some time many scientists have gone about their business privately evaluating physical evidence and police seen theories about the long gone a Sasi scientific speculation about the mysterious disappearance of the builders of the cliff dwellings continued to the current era.
When and How to Prune a Rose of Sharon
"And you were talking about roads or sharing. how do you trim them to keep them kinda inbound rather than grow grow grow. And huge trim them hard. Now, I'm going to explain that, but they are one of Mother Nature's miracles high viscous. That particular one is my nemesis because they are seed bearing plant. I have dealt with them from seedling size clear up to eight and nine feet. and I actually mean you have to trim them hard. They are able to grow in some of the poorest of soils. Hottest dryest nastiest areas as a child. The ones I'm talking about playing with were screen between my parents property and the La. You practically could even muffle the noise of car going through. They were so big now to explain their blooming now on stems that grew from this spring on out set flower buds, and they're now blooming. So with the. The rule in mind that you can trim following the bloom, they will be go there trimble. Now, for that matter, you just take off the flowers, but you can trim them anytime now and I would until fall because I'm thinking in quite a brutal pruning the way you asked the question it is a plant that you. You do pretty much the same thing that you would with any other shrub. Usually they are multiple stemmed. You would take out the biggest. Stems as close to the bottom as you can get them, let the new stems come on so that you do get new growth next spring after after a fairly brutal pruning and new flowers and so on. They also can be trimmed up as a tree where you take off all the side shoots inside site growth stems and and do it in one trunk. So I, when I say brutal I would let them finish flowering and then I would go into it from the standpoint right now of just managing it size doesn't continue to grow so much bigger, then come winter. Jacket type weather fall, or very early spring. You can go into those rascals and and really thin them out.

"Look not at that food, but lifestyle iron age is about like lifestyle and food. Mother Nature gives us pretty much. Three growing Stevens deep winter, Not much grows so Iron Data breaks it down into three seasons spring with his kasha season. I wish I could give you a different word, but it is what we use Cafa. There's Pitta, which is summer. And then there's uh, data, which is late like fall early winter, So if we look at spring Mother Nature has its muddy, It's wet. We're in it. Now. It's heavy. It's cold. So in turn What Mother Nature provides provides us with leafy, bitter greens and astringent Berries and foods that strip and clean out all of that heavy happiness. We feel when we're ready to get up and do like cleanses and stuff like that in spring season, And then there's summer where it's hot, and it's dry. So Mother Nature balances it iron age. It's all about balance and gives us tomatoes and cool melons and cucumbers and the cooling things to balance. The strain on the body from the heat and the dry and then we talked about Paul. And Paul has this light cold, airy quality to it. The wind whipped believes whip around were ungrounded. So what is Mother Nature provided root vegetables. So that we can make soup with students we harvested. Have you have you think animals? If you do eat animal proteins are slaughtered because we need these heavy things for winter to prepare for the long winter, so all about balance. Food and lifestyle are the root of iron data. If that, if that helps, Yeah, no bounds, But I'm also hearing you talk sort of about the opposite when you talk about about that a bit. You are, so it's perfect example of what? You know what.

Getting Naked in San Francisco: A History
"Who other than reporter just plot check could take on this not safe for work assignment off she goes from. The state of California has indecent exposure laws, but those only apply if someone is being sexual like masturbating in public or intentionally offensive flashing someone. But what if you're just hanging out naked minding your own business? California leaves that up to local governments. For the first half of the Twentieth Century San Francisco didn't have public nudity laws. FRISKIN S- just didn't go nude much but then the sixties arrived and with it naked people. Some saw disrobing as a form of political artistic or personal expression college students got a taste for streaking and then there were the hippies. It's just delightful to be in I'll be in and that's what this is another exotic prank to add to a growing list of student oriented rites of Spring. It's sort of a happy happening for hippies in San Francisco hippies wanted to get closer to nature and they got naked a lot in golden gate park. Here's a quote from police chief. Thomas Hill it wasn't uncommon for a Gal that come out of the bushes there in the. Panhandle. Without a damn stitch and stand right in front of you with our hands up. I was out in the park in two started going to it on the lawn beside me just to remind you sex is sexual and as such already illegal according to the state. But still conservatives wanted tougher local laws to prevent this kind of behavior and they eventually got nudity banned in the parks. However, the rest of San Francisco was still fair game. As time passed other cities made public nudity illegal among them, San Jose, and Berkeley Berkeley's interesting because it's been mostly due to one naked Guy Andrew Martinez a student at the University of California Berkeley. Decided that American society is sexually repressed and in an effort to write things he began attending classes and going everywhere else in the nude save for a pair of sandals backpack people theorized that Martinez was able to go nude without major complaint for so long because he was easy on the is Martinez attempted shock tactic soon, became old news among his fellow students to me was simply the naked guy. Administrators however sent Martinez home to stay warm until his case can be considered by a student conduct board in Nineteen ninety-two Martinez was expelled showed up naked to his disciplinary hearing at UC. Then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three here arrived naked to a Berkeley city council meeting members were offended and voted to make public nudity a misdemeanor crime. Back in San Francisco Nudist, enjoy their time in the Sun City developed a reputation for bodies in the buff especially at certain public events like folsom street fair a leather fetish festival or Beta breakers of rambunctious twelve k race who was an exhilarating experience people on the sidelines cheering.

Pasco is also the coordinator of the Bay Area Nature rests we're group of people who believe that the human body is God's divine creation nothing to be ashamed of, and that our interaction with Mother Nature is enhanced by removing the barrier of clothing. POSCO says it wasn't just public events where people could let it all hang out there also newt approved beaches in certain places where nudists would congregate lose a group of people in San Francisco who thought that going new to Jane Warner Plaza would be a good idea.

Pruning to Reduce Size, Pine needles and Milkweed
"People want to know, can I make this shrub or tree smaller, or maybe they've purchased a new home and they say this is too big, or this is out of control right or maybe they're supposed to be cutting these things down. I grew up in a family. My mother was a very good gardener actually, but my dad was in charge of the shrubbery, and he was one of those people who would just go out with the electric hedged Trimaran. Cut everything down to the height. He wanted it to be and when I became a professional gardener and told him this really was not the best thing for his trees and shrubs. He would pretend to let me do it my way I would go out there. I would prune the SHRUB correctly and the next time I came home. He had gone out with that hedge stripper again. He just could not give it up. Your parents have ties to the old country right? Yeah, he did anyway. My in laws were Italian. They came to this country after world. War Two and my father-in-law used to do the same thing and when I went to Italy, I realize Twi because a lot of the pruning that is done in these countries. They do that repeatedly. Even trees get either politics or or really cut back. Back hard all the time and the reason is there. Isn't that much space in most of their yards and gardens, and that was sort of an old way of dealing with plan. Let's let's take a second and explain what the Word Pollard means. When it comes to PR- tree-pruning because it's not something that's done here anymore. People might not know what it is, but if you ever look in one of those big coffee table books that show pictures of you know La's in Paris of trees in the wintertime. When you can really see the branch structure, you may find an example of polishing and what that is is when. Trees and shrubs primarily trees are pruned by just kind of a a topping cut, and so all the growth is cut back to a certain place, and they do this over and over every year, and what ends up looking like for the structure of the tree to me is always like a bunch of knuckles at the end of your hand like if you cut off your fingers, which would be a horrible thing to do at the first knuckle, and the the new growth comes out of that every year, but to correctly and healthily Pollard a tree. You need to keep up with that very specific type of pruning every season, and if you don't do that then. Where the new growth comes out of gets weak, and it can lead to breakage, so it's not something that people do here a lot, but it's interesting I. Never Thought about the reason for that being a popular technique in Europe being the space limitations properties were not as expansive right. I think that that's one reason that this practice came about however to get back to the question. Should I be cutting this back unless you're doing it every year, it's probably not a good idea just to hack a plant back. Would say not. Well, first of all it makes it. Look Right, so it doesn't. It doesn't have as attractive appearance. Second of all the plant is going to desperately try and replace what it's lost, and for trump's and trees, this leads to a whole bunch of straight up growth. The plant wants its leaves back. It wanted food factories back right and that's this is not a good time of year to be doing that anyway. This is the time of year when your tree should be storing energy. Maybe flowering, it's a flowering tree I think and I recommend, this is always my recommendation, although sometimes I do not follow my own advice. You! And if you are fortunate enough to be planting your own garden, just think about the mature size of your tree or your shrub before you buy it and I know that's hard to do. You've got this big empty space. You want it to look beautiful and full and green and lush right from the start, but you will regret it I promise you because that little blue spruce, that is so cute and four feet tall right now is going to be twenty four feet tall before you know it and. And if you don't site that properly the right distance from your house, not blocking a window. You'RE GONNA. Be Very sorry. You cannot win this battle against against Mother Nature. That tree or Shrub wants to be what it's going to

Creativity in lockdown with Dan Thawley
"Name's done thoroughly and I am. The editor in chief of a magazine curated by fashion and odds journalists based in Paris mistrial like I was born in Sydney and moved over to Europe in two thousand nine. And I've been working on this magazine since two thousand nine is its digital editor in two thousand and ten. I became the editor in chief. It's a magazine that was started in Antwerp in two thousand one with the mission of creating Belgium's first name fashioned title and it quickly became something quite different as the concept is to invite one fashion designer to curate each each issue of the magazine at say cut blonde to them to express their interests their that loves their obsessions and all about the universe in around two hundred pages and it is something that has really done a a world to a in nearly twenty years with designers from France and Italy from Japan from England and from the United States and really a covering a very very broad aesthetic scope as well so it started with designers like Martin Majella and had Iraq common and alleviate tastes skins people that were really based in that late nineties Belgian aesthetic And then moving forward. We've we've worked with the many many different types of designers like Alexandra mckelway at Gucci. We've worked with Palo Pitcher Lee at Gallon Tina and almost issue which is just about to hit newsstands. In the coming days and was announced last week is with. Luke and Lucy mayor who are the Co curated directors of Joe Sanders Milan. I'm such a fan of theirs. I'm really excited to read this. But I'm I'm wondering Dan. How how. How do you put together a print magazine while in confinement? How did you make that work? We're very impressed so we have. I mean it's always a long process in this initiative. We've been working on for many months. So certain parts of it were very luckily finished. Just before legal confinement and other parts of it was still in the process as we as we were shutdown lockdown here in France so I was very lucky to have program this issue more or less to come out around this Around this time but it was slightly delayed. But I'm what we don was actually done most of the physical productions in the months of January to March already. So what was the biggest challenge for US was That we usually design the magazine together without team in Cologne as we work with a wonderful office codes Marais and Mirae in a column and so usually we would have gone there with looking Lucia and whichever designer we were with the time for a couple of days and we sit in the office with them and we design all the pages and we go through all of the process of of the structure and putting everything together in person. And this time we were unable to do that. As actually there was a case of covid nineteen in the in the office in Cologne in the earlier. Part of of quarantine. It was really off the table before travel was actually Was actually restricted. So we were forced to do everything. And and work from home as as were everybody else. What we were lucky was that we'd had most of Al Photo shoots finished so I'm one of the challenges was that we had photographers rushing to their lab. Zola the All over the place to get prints developed in time and we did shoot Many different cities New York Bacelona Paris. I slammed we. We really were all over the place. Summer talk of traveled others were in their in their hometown during their own country where they could drive and and do something locally which was nice. It wasn't all baked productions Anyway but it was many small things happening at once and and so we did have the risk of getting some of our images in time and then everything was luckily through except for one or two things that we really had too late by the wayside and we set to work designing the magazine from fall which was very challenging. Because we had people in time zones on my colleagues Blake was in Vancouver with his family so he was able to come over for the design periods so we had people working from Vancouver to France to Cologne and Milan only lockdown so it was quite a juggling act but al lost real stroke of luck in the middle. That was that in fact we would for the first time printing with an Italian printout because they work with a special technique where the side of the magazine is actually invisibly bound. So it's bound with stitches. Which then all these small booklets stitch together and then glued on the side so you have this invisible spine with the stitches showing through and they were actually considered an essential service in Italy. Even though they were northern Italy area that was very very heavily affected by the virus and Due to their Status as an essential services provider we were able to print in April saw so that was really interesting and as I said a very serendipitous experience. The putting the print magazine together nut time of course like putting any media together in that period. It was something that had to be done very sensitively. It had to be done with a lot of thought to the well that we were living in at a particular time as well as The That we're going into and We were also very prescient with that because Lucy and Luke's same for the issue that was decided last. July was the idea of human nature and Mother Nature and the interactions between those things that have been decided way before because I feel it so APP. Yes so we've found ourselves with the same that we'd already been working on for months. It was already very much connected to current events. In a way you know we're looking at indicted environments. We were looking at different kinds of architecture that was linked to people's domestic lives the process of them creating work. We were looking at also different elements of of race. We were looking into also things that sort of pivoted around the way we deal with nature and environment. It was something that I of course have to think about when riding my editor's letter which is one of the loss things that goes into the magazine and A very timeless publication. We're not the kind of magazine like You were discussing earlier. The whether it's vogue or New York Times it has to be on the on the point of of the actually of the news and really making strong statements Thereabouts but what we did have in wanted to do. He was still a really acknowledged the fact that we were coming out in this time and in this year Wanted that we will never forget in our in our

Well what do you think of that story? L. Is Pretty Nice. Yeah I liked it except for the except for the danger. Save all endangered animal. You would.

You wouldn't talk about that. I would not like to but it's important that people know that these things happened and that people actually paid money for such a thing which is disgusting. It's shameful shameful for what you guys said. Yes I agree. Yes fully times two million. I appreciate your
"I'm excited I sit down and talk with here you man. I'm disappointed you can't see me dressed in my finest and freshly shaved respect for you. Yeah and doing looking at work and seeing some of the presentations you've done and just getting a a really good understanding of what your career has look like. I was really inspired. Not just by the work which I think is exceptional but I thought that you were one of the few photographers who focuses on the things that you that you do in terms of the environment cultural impact of socio economic issues around the world and one of the things that you really adept at is providing a sense of connectedness between all these what normally would be disparate things in the minds of many of our of Westerners tend to have such a topic and self absorbed obsession with the world revolving around us that we tend to sort of exclude things that we don't feel have a direct impact on us even though it does and I don't think that at least for for for Western people that that something that awareness that you have it comes naturally. I think it's something that at least for me has been sort of a learned. I've had to unlearn that kind of way of thinking and open myself up and I'm wondering for you. How did that sense of that connectedness? You know that I see in your work. How did you come to have that yourself? It's kind of interesting here just to kind of explore this topic right out of the out of the out of the gate here but it's just an overall feeling that we are all one connected human being we are all one connected earth country. There's no difference between myself. And someone number Wanda a first nations person in Canada. A polar bear were all part of this great mother nature all part of this earth and I see it. All is our earth our collective future art collective history that belongs to each and every one of us and all of us have a vital role to play in this world so for me. It's I see that connection point. I've seen the difference between a billionaire and someone who's on the streets having a tough time in their life were all these powerful magnetic souls that are all on our journey in this world. I respect an extraordinary operation for really each and every one of us who are on this path. Was that something you always had or? Did you have a moment of epiphany when you were younger? That sort of allowed you to see the world in that particular way is definitely something that was important to me from the streets of Belfast from my times experiences in Sarajevo some of those really powerful experiences in Haiti in the early nineties. When you're just experiencing something that is so powerful and so beyond anything that you could even imagine you'd be confronting in your life and the humility that is absorbed through every cell and fiber in my body as I photograph and spend time with extraordinarily powerful people. That frankly have the power have strengthened. Have courage that I do not possess. I am simply an observer a witness in that sense and I am a part of this journey that they are on in the experience of their life than you know. Ultimate humility to me comes from there in the eyes of the people that I've photographs from really understanding the depths. What their day to day realities like and then how I come back to this first world. It's it's a difficult thing. It was brutal that coming back in landing at LAX. In coming back into this world leading. When I just left behind That Internet itself is extraordinarily difficult to the least. I remember crying literally walking down the aisles of a grocery store and looking at their Sushi in all these meets and everything it's like my God and I'm in Saudi bullets. They're dependent on what food they can scrounge. They're taking their lives in their hands. Trying to get water for their family and Sarajevo not being shot and killed and he does understand life and such a different matter that it really comes down to a pitcher of water feeding your family for that day or providing one meal and then coming back here to realize you know what we have at our at our fingertips some so it starts to really bend and the beginning years of breaking May to a completely different understanding of other majority are. Have you know a lot of other people around the world on? That's an interesting term. You said breaking you in as if you had Basically Foundation that you basically emptied sort of destroy in order to build a a a new one with being way of describing. Yeah I also think that for me I had an extraordinary powerful desire within me to witness first hand the history as it unfolds being an apartheid South Africa before Nelson Mandela. Send it to presidency a lot of the different war-zones in and out of the genocide in Rwanda Darfur wars in the Middle East. A lot of fees experiences really changed me immensely and really broke down the nature of what I thought reality was for me and for my family and what that word means to me and how it's manifested within me and how it is indeed. You know change the way that I view the world. How did how did you see your work or hope for your work to be used during those those early years of your career and how change what was really interesting. Is that one of the first major magazines that I work with was magazine that you might have depending on where you're at school was called scholastic so that was the magazine. Went out to students I received when I was a student so lineup really establishing a great relationship where the editor they're Lee buyer and I really started to take on a lot of these projects around the world on children.

Francesca Buongiorno. Kayak Francesca every day. You take groups around Rome like an evangelist of art appreciation. I've been following you for twenty years this way and it just your fresh now as you were when I first met you as far as your teaching mission. What is your mission as a teacher of travelers in Rome mission to make Rome accessible because I understand that it can be overwhelming. And what do you do with two thousand years of history? What do you do if two thousand years of art? So it's really giving some ideas on how to navigate it how to make sense of. What does it mean? What does it mean to us today? Wonderful classroom well. It's not a bad office to have. Now what are the big challenges? I mean it's it's hot. It's crowded people don't know their history What are the challenges of this? I mean it's becoming more and more crowded yes. The summer's getting very hot. But I think we have to stand that these things don't explain themselves that it's not true that if you stare at a painting or you look at broken columnists going to tell you what it means so we need a little bit of help. We need a few ideas. How do I look at things with the ancient ruins? Look like when they were intact for example so was a few ideas. We can do that. So when you're doing your work. Are there moments when you feel like yes? I've I've really connected and this person has been opened up to the wonder of what I've loved for years. It's a moment the SA- crossing the threshold at some moment. When you see that look in their eyes that they're right there and sometimes I invite them to remember to think of themselves at home packing their suitcases before coming to Rome and ask him think of where you are now the real thing and the real place think about this and as he that they look around themselves they do these moments. I mean now. Travelers can enter the coliseum through. What do you call it? The gladiator entrance on the stern entrance. And you're on the arena on the floor and you can hear the crowds and you can see the wild animals and BSE. Imagine nation is absolutely ignited finding moments though as a teacher. I mean anybody could just walk through some Gaetan look at the Coliseum on the inside it must be nice for you to able to have an entry that makes sense for the story that you're trying to tell. The story is the part I. I don't think you know after twenty years of talking about these things. I think that it's not so much the stones in themselves as was the stones have to say I mean the idea that the stones carry cultures carry stories that but we can think about and we can understand the past but we can also understand ourselves and having a conversation with those stories for you in other words the art can actually be more than just enjoying something fascinating or beautiful it can have meaning can have important the cost the coliseum. I mean the colosseum is bricks. Stones was the colosseum as a place of violence as a place of politics. It's a place where there is ethical moral issue that comes up with his. It mean that these people went to watch death all day long so it becomes a an occasion to reflect on the use of violence and propaganda. That so interesting because a lot of people go. Oh those Romans I mean arena. That's the word is sand right to soak up the blood. Absolute that's why it's called an arena because Covered with sand. So all the bloodshed on the opening celebration of the Coliseum. How many animals were slaughtered? Has Nine thousand or something like that? I always recommend working with perception to also think okay violence. But what if they'd been ancient Roman sitting in the audience and I saw my first lion never having seen a photograph line on knowing what a line looks like a lion pounces out of the floor for the first time. Two thousand years ago without zoos and circuses documentaries would that meant so we can put ourselves in the shoes of people of the past. It creates a different understanding history and culture. We don't need to be quite so judgmental and we also have to remember. What are the top selling movies for us? You know. They're the shoot? 'em Up the Schwarzenegger movies on this kind of stuff. The the wrestling the car racing everybody waiting for a crash. I mean there's a lot of consistency between twenty first century and two thousand years ago might challenge as a tour guide. And I would imagine you're too is helping people see things in that context. I mean today we go to Roman. It's a modern city sitting on the ruins of a city that used to have a million people. There were a million people in Rome two thousand years ago. How do we envision that? How do we appreciate pass key? But the imagination needs to be informed so if I say that Roma's the first city in the West that reach the population of a million that an antiquity was the most populated city on the planet. And there will never be a million people in a European city again after Roman to London in the eighteen hundreds there you can start thinking that and then you start saying well. What did it mean to provide clean water food housing to over a million people two thousand years ago with did it look like and then you're there all of a sudden you're there and you're thinking like them and you don't bring your baggage of perceptions of moral codes and ethics but you're thinking like a Roman and then that's the transformative aspect of travel that you can be in the shoes of another person of another time might challenge and I just love? This is to not look at it from yeah. I've been there done that. I've seen it on TV. I saw that movie. You know from the twenty. Oh we've got taller buildings or whatever put yourself in the context and then you go. Wow they had a sewer system for a million people. They brought in water for a million people. They cooked bread for a million people there. Rick it happens if you're on the other side of the world and you didn't know book it's one thing if you're in place and you can imagine you can think you can reflect. You can feel are things that can happen if you're that to not happen. Otherwise is doors open as he's Windows. That opens a comprehension. Remember we talked about once fell to The Catholic pilgrim to walk into Saint Peter's for the first time for one hundred years ago. It's that idea of putting ourselves in the eyes in the shoes of travelers on the past

"Be things that will occur. That will be good in. The new norm is gonNA look different than than the norm in the past. Yeah and everyone showed go in at least try to get one of your books on Chefs Dash Garden Dot com absolutely. That's something that they should be doing. A talk to us a little bit more about Dictionary Vegetable Institute. What's the mission of of this institute? Will the culinary vegetable institutes? Initial vision was a place for the foremost chefs in the country. To be able to come and to do experimentation and research and to be able to play it's an RND lab. We have relationships with connery equipment. Companies that have the best of the best and the newest ideas from centrifuges. You know you're just unbelievable CHEF SIMPSON. It's undefined on a farm. We normally we have about six hundred visiting chefs a year. Grant advocates brought his entire opening team before they opened a Linnea and Chicago and spent three days doing menu development and playing with ingredients and then seven years later stuffy who was on rance opening team came with his opening team from grace. And he's planning his extra back because he'll be opening ever pretty soon but the idea was originally for chefs to come. It's evolved into a place where we do. Corporate aren T in corporate retreats we have Barilla's Pasta brought sixteen of their corporate chefs like they corporate Shafran. Tgi FRIDAYS THE CORPORATE CHEF FROM MACARONI. Grill or shafts from that our customers that are big users of Pasta and they came out. They toured the farm. They came they work together and they cook and experimented with all these different ways to pasta could be used so corporations come and bring their guests as you know the what most of them usually did for many years go out to Greystone and then toured a Napa Valley. There's only so many times you WanNa do that. And so this really gives corporations and alternative to be able to come in. It's kind of Nice. You know they kind of have a captive audience. Because you know you're out in the farm in so they're not getting wandering off into a bar or some other thing. They're focused on really building. The relationships it's about relationship building and learning different ways to be able to use ingredients. And do you think you're going to have the the route conference in September this year? That's burning that's burning question right now. No we we hope to. I don't know I really don't know. Can you tell us a little bit? The conferences for the listener the conference. This'll be our fifth year. We skipped last year because we were in the middle of a contract with a book that we agreed to do. It's it's about a right now about an eight hundred page book on everything you could imagine about vegetable. It's designed to be the authority on vegetable in America. It is a great resource book for anybody that has any interest in anything from gardening to cooking. That's twenty twenty one correctable k next spring of twenty twenty one right. The roots conferences to bring the really the shakers to movers to thinkers the things. That haven't even really made mainstream yet. That guys are out there. Ladies and gentlemen are out there doing things that they're meaningful to them. They're passionate about their innovative. Cutting edge ideas native American cuisine. We did that four or five years ago. That's kind of hidden centerstage. Now and in preserving these varietals. So crickets crickets five years ago. You know and it's one of the most nutritious things that you can consume you can grind it into flour and it's got more protein in it than any meat that you can consume it can. It has the potential to save their third world countries. So it's things that people are doing or working on are considering and then the networking of somebody talking to somebody else. It's like Oh you're working on that I've been on. Here's I found. The networking is worth the price of admission in. It's a two day day and a half two day event. Come out. You're on the farm share ideas and we have speakers and it's just it's just an amazing day and a half rate speakers and networking okay. So yeah that's Crossed fingers that you can have this year so family Jones almost an hour and I would like to give you back your freedom but full that would you nine answering a series of rapid fire questions. Okay I'm I'm curious. Do you Cook Yourself. I do okay so what you like to make. What's your favorite thing? I'm the king of leftovers. Whatever that's impounded over and my my son and my wife always joke about that that I'm the king of leftovers. So I always take whatever's leftover and I create something new out of whatever's there and I love to love whatever whatever you recently doors. Oh my Josh. Everything blurs together all the meals together. I put you on the spot here. Yeah you did okay so like nothing specific to mind okay. So what's what's your favorite guilty pleasure food. I had some. My sister made buttermilk high. And I had it for breakfast this morning. In my in my aunt's recipe my grandmother's recipe and Grandma's gone. But my aunt makes the most amazing in butter chocolate fudge. Guess from everything that you have done with chefs sending a request that you receive. What was can you knew remember? Maybe what's one of your favorite chefs requests? Got All my gosh. There's been so many. I mean a chef in New York City asked me to send Christmas tree. One time I mean. We have done everything we early on. We don't do it anymore for food safety. But a chef requested live Turkeys and this was when we were still delivering with our drugs. And I have a picture with a Turkey in a crate in its head sticking out through the great. I've got the great with duct tape and it so I- deliver da live Turkeys and live ducks to the chef in Columbus and he opened the box and one of the ducks flew out and took off to a nearby pond in so we lost that. The last that I mean chefs have been. They've been so great to US and they've they've asked us to do things for them and we've been grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of their teams and we love chefs. What he's beside the rooster and a Christmas tree those trends or things that you have contributed. I mean not that you have contributed to Turkey anything on a lot of times. It's it's looking at a plant in a different way than we've ever considered it. There's kind of the traditional norms that we have an expectation of of things at a certain size or a certain stage and we have a saying on the farm and the chefs really helped us develop that thought processes that at every single stage of a plant life and offers something unique to the late. I don't know if you've you've had a garden. And Radish shot shot what they call a seed. Stock wants to shoot a seed stock. It goes to bloom because it's trying to the goal of plans to produce a mature seed and once it shoots a seat stock. It's no longer radishes no longer good to take the market. The the radish becomes filthy and hollow got this enormous stock with all these amazing blooms and the cruciferous plowing under field. Because it had shot US each and I had the chef in the truck with me and my brother was plowing the field under any jumps out of the truck before even stop any run in front of a tractor and waves. And he's like. Why are you plowing this under? And he got out and you taste it and he's like. Do you realize what I can do this on a plate and it was jailed that had gone to Bloom Beautiful? Bright yellow flower that the ADS amazing flavor to a stir. Fry or any any dish that you can imagine so looking at those plants in a different way. Then we've traditionally considered them. I think as exciting. The the root of garlic we pulled the garlic and saw the route and we now harvest the route in. It's one of one of our most popular. Things is garlic route. The really looking at that plant differently and the final one was for straight you most in the farming industry today. A frustrations are small. Things Because you you have to continue to be an internal optimist on the farm one of my personal things that I have a sane. When asparagus is in season we should consume it three times a day. When it's out of season we should lust for it for ten more months. Mother Nature Mother Nature provides such a natural rhythm to what we should be consuming at any one time allow Mother Nature to dictate what your menus are unders for for me and I think has got much better in the last five years for chefs understand. What's in season? What frustrates me is seen as Farragut. Coming in from Peru or Chile or Ecuador when it's out of season and then when it's in season it's not celebrated celebrate Mother Nature Seasons. There's a natural rhythm in our bodies if will really get in tune with our bodies and listen to our bodies. Our bodies will crave certain foods. And your body. I don't know if you've ever experienced that where there's times where I just need. Kale or I need beats components within those foods that your body is telling you you need and Mother Nature will provide that. Yeah I mean it's just be tuned with your body be in tune with Mother Nature. I always like to take anything problem or a frustration and turn it into an opportunity so I would say my biggest opportunity rather than frustration is is that there's an opportunity for people to have a better understanding of win foods season and how to celebrate that. I think that we should finish with those word. Formerly Jones said I too. I appreciate and I can tell that we have farm can hear the rooster in you know in the background. That reminds me a lot of now. You you know. In the north of France with a real village when there was a lot of farms as well so Thank you so much for being a guest on the show.

Let's welcome Jones to the show. Hi Far Early Jones same. Welcome to the but casts favors unknown. I'm really pleased to have you as a guest this morning. Thank you for having me no. It's a it's a pleasure so I mean how are you doing? And how bad is the situation for you guys? You know since the beginning of the penalty. Well we're doing okay. As far as health and safety food safety always been really important to us on the farm. But we're doing triple we've tripled our sterilization methodologies and everybody's getting temperatures checked in lab coats and hairnets it certainly. It's affected us in a grand way over the last thirty seven years. One hundred percent of revenue has come from working directly with chefs throughout the United States. And some internationally. We ship some over to Hong Kong in Dubai and other countries but of course the corona virus hit and all the restaurants. Were shut down. Obviously there are some that are trying to you. Know make things happen with carry out and delivery but that's a pretty small percentage it's definitely affected us in a grand way. Yeah so it's definitely a very difficult time for you guys because everything has just said and everything that you do is with chefs in mind. So can you take us and tell us take us back into the whole adventure off the shelves guard Adventure started with With the chefs. Full interestingly enough. It kind of feels like we're have kind of bank ya back in time My father was in commercial vegetable production. This this is an amazing micro-climate were or two point nine miles. Inland from Lake. Erie and Lake Erie is the shallowest of all the Great Lakes and it's also the warmest and the soil that we're on his all old lake bottom at one point. There were over three hundred thirty vegetable growers in this county now as near as we can figure it was the largest concentration of truck farmers vegetable farmers of any county in the United States. Now you can say wait a minute in go out to California and you can find counties that are one hundred percent agriculture from north South East West. But they're owned by thirty farmers that each have thirty thousand acres. These were small family farms. A large farm at that time would have been one hundred acres. Because that's about all one family could take care of and they recalled truck farmers and what that meant was that ah soon in the spring that you could clamps. You started planting and you planted every day until you got to the fall where you were sure that when you planted that it probably wasn't GonNa make it unless you gotta really late fall in so if you can let's say hypothetically you started planning April first and on Greens and radishes lettuces. You could move now to. May I and you start harvesting so every day. You're still planting but then from may first on your harvesting what's ready your washing at your packing it. You're loading trucks. And you're taking it to a farmer's market entirely different firms market than what we visualized today when I say farmers market so when you're talking about that time. Can you just to specify what yours you are referring to here in? I'm referring to like in the nineteen thirties in the nineteen forties. Cleveland has amazing ethnic diversity which is one of the reasons that makes Cleveland so cool. Because there's so much depth of history and culture and if you think about Jewish and Slovak and Hungarian and Russian Italian and on and on and on and every one of those came into this region Divi moved into communities and they had their own neighborhoods. They have their own grocery stores and their had their own grocery store buyers as you think about the hundreds of family owned grocery stores that existed before roads and refrigeration had really developed to the point where there was really any outside competition this pre chain grocery stores and so those farmers would go in and buy about ten or eleven o'clock at night midnight hundreds of grocery store buyers would meet at farmers markets and the farmers would develop with each of those grocery store buyers and they would grow specific things for them and then the farmers would go home and then they would be home by two o'clock in the morning. It's sleep for a few hours. And then get up and harvest again and plant again and they were truck farmers so they really did quite well. They had a captive audience. They didn't have a lot of outside competition. But as roads and refrigeration by the mid forties and fifties is road star and refrigeration started getting better than larger farms could do more efficient scale and the economy of scale kicked in and one by one. Those family on grocery stores were pushed out. I mean if your listeners can think about and go back to their childhood and think about their hometown and think about the family owned grocery stores that were perhaps there are no longer there. It's the same thing that happened with the family farms because one by one those family farms couldn't compete with a larger volume industries ation. Yeah that's exactly right now. My father was working. Cooperatively didn't have a co op that he worked with about sixty five other growers from our community and he invested in Hydra Cooling packaging colonization bundling and was competing with larger farms from Florida from Phoenix from Arizona from California and they competed pretty good for you know quite a from the period of about mid sixty s to the early eighties and they packed all under one label. I can remember my dad loading ten to twelve semi loads of produce. Phallic is produce a day in the summer season. You know in that. Seventy in between a mid sixties and early eighties. A one by one those sixty five growers Continued to go out just opposite of what we're experiencing today lowest interest rates in the history of the United States. Right now they're talking about even some one percent money and one was actually fifteen twenty. It hit it actually. Hit twenty two percent in the early eighties. My parents got wrapped up in that and they had a very devastating hailstorm at at wiped out all crops. They couldn't beat repay the loans and when I was nineteen years old I stood shoulder to shoulder with my mom and dad and my brother and sister all of our neighbors all of our competitors. Everybody that were there to celebrate our failure and they auctioned every single tracker off every single piece of equipment. My mother's car and at our home and we literally crisis was though as you hit the bottom. You know.

"The most stringent standards to prevent methane leakage which is so much worse than even co two emissions. So I think that's one key to begin the conversation and the other is to say for Biden judge me on my whole plan my whole plan to restore the mileage standards Actually intensify them them. More My whole plan is actually tax foreign oil to make us the swing consumer to make sure we create a floor under under the price of oil and gas so it doesn't knock out wind and solar okay And we don't get gasoline at twenty five cents a gallon so we destroyed the electric car industry. So you have to have a holistic picture here if you make this purity test in simply say. I'M AGAINST THAT TECHNOLOGY. And if you're against that technology you don't get my vote is president. I guess really counterproductive. You have to have a holistic picture. Where are we now? Where do we want to be? Where do we want to be ten years from now? How do we make that transition still in office and also take care of our friends and neighbors who are working in these industries and build them a bridge away from it? That David is what I would say to the Bernie Sanders Way. Hey David Gale Tom Friedman wings. Who said there the Green Wing of the party? I'm I'm I'm as Green as as they are and I've been at this longer than a Lotta them so Is taking a holistic view? If that's what I would say to the Bernie Sanders Way. Here's what I'd say to the coal miners in West Virginia or the oil and gas guys in Western Pennsylvania. I come to town and I'd say you know what showed up in your town here to say driving here to these mountains of West Virginia or Pennsylvania and this is a beautiful part of the country. I can see why you WanNa live here. I know what this is about it. Ain't about fracking. Molecules is not about coal. You don't want to coal mine any more than your Granddad. Did Your Dad did. I'll tell you what this is. I think this is about for you about home your community but the place. You love the vistas. You've grown up with the neighbors. You Adore the music you so enjoy. It's about home and I'm just going to ask you one thing. Give me a chance to keep you at home. While I build a bridge for you to a different way to stare from oil and Gas Bridge to Clean Energy Bridge Tom. You know you've you've been way ahead of most of us on this issue of climate Thirteen years ago. Two thousand seven. You wrote this. You said because new green ideology properly defined has the power to mobilize liberals and conservatives evangelicals atheists big businesses and environmentalists around agenda. That can both pull us together and propel US forward. You imagined a bipartisan coalition. Coming together around a green economy. What happened to that Unfortunately David a two thousand eight really upset the apple cart in a I was writing about a green new deal can do thousand seven It's where Mama got the idea. Frankly and And then this thing called two thousand eight happened actually lived my book. Hot Flat ground dissolved narcissism but off Leyden. Cottie came out in two thousand eight. It was number one on the New York Times Bestseller List for three weeks. And then this bank call Lehman Brothers went under and it took that book and took Al Gore and took everybody else who is raising this issue completely down and into a dark corner where we had to sit for three or four years before we could really reenergize debating and so I wish Obama have pushed for a carbon tax. Allie was hard. I understand the healthcare was a big lift but Obama to his credit. You know what he did to the auto industry to transform them which trump is now all redoing what he did around and environmental regulation when he did around mileage standards. was huge and Differentiating and I still have a lot of respect for that. You know as you said. We got to know each other when you did that. Wonderful piece on on climate migration from Syria really on the drought in Syria. You went there for us. That was one of the best pieces. We had an are showtime series Tell me what sticks out in your memory about that about that story What do you think about what? What is it about where we're going? Well you know what it taught me David and was the really centerpiece of my last book. Thank you I. Is that if you want to see the world if when people say to me? How do you look at the world? I'm always arbitraging. Three perspectives now by call the market Mother Nature. Moore's law which is technology globalization and climate. And the serious story told you how valuable bringing climate is into any geopolitical analysis of for the very simple reason that If you'd ask a Middle East auto no political expert. What happened in Syria? He Tell You well. There was a revolution The Democracy Movement then he crush them and it was the Alawites resist the Sudanese. And then you're on all of that all none of which is wrong. Actually yes me. What happens here I would tell you I on. Syria experienced the worst drought in modern. History from You know about two thousand six till two thousand eleven. A million Syrian farmers and herders were forced off the land Asta did nothing for them. They flock to the cities. They lived in shanty areas basically around these giants cities then technology. Jixian Steve. Jobs invented the IPHONE Around In twenty eleven it doesn't seventies me Then they got on their iphones and they watched the Arab spring in Tunisia explode through globalization and basically the market Mother Nature. Moore's law together combined to blow the lid off Syria to the point where one of the people we interviewed in our series. One of the rebel leaders said this was a revolution of hungry. You would not know what happened in Syria unless you watch years of living dangerous unless you brought the market Mother Nature and Moore's law all together into your analysis is kind of chilling to think that were most likely in the first inning or maybe the second inning on climate migration. Oh my God I mean. I'm so worried. Because think of the series we did on say Bangaldesh With rising sea level. They're not combines with global pandemic where places like India or Iraq or Syria. They have no choice but to go for her immunity to the poor Indians. The government tells of poor in the shanty outside about behalf returned to your village when you go home to avoid cove nineteen. Wash your hands five times today. He says where in what clean water with. What's and if you get sick They tell him call. Dr He says the doctor. We have one doctor pretend thousand five hundred people and by the way most importantly they're told social distance social distance. We've won eleven of asleep together at night so they have no cheats against this pandemic. So the only way it's going to end there is immunity sixty percent or soda. People have to get it and in many will tragically die and be injured by this virus. Along the way now they will be enfeebled. By these societies both physically in terms of people economically and then you overlay that with increasing the extreme.

"So there's nobody with the ability to actually make sure that the olive oil that's being sold as say like the purest extra virgin olive oil, actually is extra virgin olive oil or is even all avoid at all. It could just be like plano vegetable oil. That has nothing to do with with olive oil and never has with just a little bit of extra virgin olive oil mixed in for taste. Yeah. Because I mean, they use they have standards they have like actual standards for the number of chemicals minimums and maximums and stuff like that. But it really comes down to human tasters people that actually tastes the stuff and say, no, this is metallic or muddy. There's no way this extra virgin olive oil fail or fusty. That's another one. I love that word fusty Voyles fusty. But there just aren't enough mouths on these in these associations to keep up with the massive massive industry that is olive oil industry. And so the most pessimistic. People out there will say eighty percent of the olive oils that say extra-virgin are not right. Eighty percent. And that's again, the most pessimistic. But I mean, let's say it's fifty fifty. That's terrible. Yeah. It really is. Because I mean, it's terrible for a couple of reasons one you're getting ripped off. I mean, you might be paying for olive oil that is just not up to snuff. And it's not as good as you think it is. That's that's bad enough. But if you're you're getting olive oil because you want to be healthier, right? And it turns out that it's not only good not good olive oil. It's not even all of oil. You're not getting those health benefits. You may even be eating something more than you should. And it's actually just vegetable oil, which is actually not good for you, in any way, shape or form. Really? That's that's as bad. So you're getting ripped off. And you're you're being abused healthwise. Yeah. And it's. I mean, we kind of made fun of the ninety nine cent bottle that says extra virgin olive oil, but you can get the fourteen dollar bottle. And that could be fake. It's not just the little cheapies. I mean, that's a pretty good warning sign, but you would think that if you paid like, you know, for the fifteen dollar bottle next to the seven dollar bottle. That's the real deal. And that's not always the case either. Right. Really be it. I know I didn't run across like how you how you can be sure. But I think there is no way to be sure. I bet do a little research on your own find out about, you know, get a few brands that you know, are doing the right thing and seek those out. I I wanna say like, well, if you go to, you know, sonoma's Napper, you know, Provence or somewhere where there's they know what they're talking about with all avoidable. You'd have to have like pretty like iron cojones, soap and up in like, a high end olive oil. Oil shop and sell vegetable oil. So surely, that'd be a good place to it. But then remember there was that whole mass brothers chocolate thing where they were just selling like melted down her. She's everybody for like eight bucks a bar and everybody went for that. So yeah, I don't know. I guess you would have to befriend and all of oil producer who you knew and trusted. Maybe let them hold some of your money for a little while see what they did with it. And then when they gave it all back a couple years down the road, then you could confidently start buying all from them. And that's the only way or just we'll maybe we'll throw chat a little seed money..

"Hate in life hate and life. That's what the donkey's doing its role rolling a big wheel in a circular path over and over all day long. Smashing these olives into a pulp that pulse called the pomace. And then finally in the twentieth century, they started using things like steel drum grinders or in this one would surprise me hammers mechanize hammers which is not a good idea. Now, it's not. Probably seemed like a good idea in the fifties. When they introduced it. And now, they're like, this is this makes terrible olive oil. And somebody said, I know we'll do to sell a fairly cheap in the supermarket. And they said genius. Yes. Because of the friction right because heat he does. No good. That's why they call it cold press. Like good stuff is cold pressed. Yep. He does. No good for olive oil. It makes it it. Just changes the changes, the taste it does very much. So introduces tastes you don't want. It can also paradoxically get rid of tastes you do one. Yeah. You it's it's not good at all the introduce heat. And that's another reason why olive oil kind of stands on its own as far as vegetable oils, go with just about every other oil, you you cook with like a vegetable oil or seed oil. It's it's it heat is is necessary to get the oil out of the seed with all of all you don't use heat. And so it preserves a lot of the flavors that you lose with other vegetable oils, which is why so many vegetable oils just. Taste exactly the same. It's like is this all just come from the same that where if you take a sip of all voile, you know, that's all there's no mistaking whatsoever. Yeah. You don't want to take a sip of like just standard vegetable oil, you you you don't want to. But you well, sure you could but they're not gonna put that on your plate with balsamic vinegar restaurant with little pepper grind on. It depends on the restaurant. You think? Yeah. I could see it. So the grinding process you have to do this long enough. So the the Malik station process emerges and from what I gather. That's when actual oil is released from the cells, and then they start to combine with one another until it's like recognizable oil is that about right? Yeah. Like tiny tiny little particle droplets. Start to combine into larger fat droplets of oil, and you just get more oil out of the the the actual all of self right? And that's that's just to get the pulp policy pulp actually called pomace. It's not policy. Yeah. Peo- MAC. Right. Yeah. But that's not the actual pressing of the oil that comes next, right? That's just the crushing of it's a loosen things up to kind of get the party started. The pressing is is number two. So the pomace or the paste is. Put in traditionally it's put onto Matt or. Like like wooden boards. They have holes all over it. And then stacked. So you put like say down put some of the pomace on top of it put another Matt down put some more pompous on top. And you got a nice little stack going, and then you get a board. And then you go get, you know, just sippy the human giant yet to lay on top of the board and press down the largest human in the village, take sit on it. Right. And then that actually you're pressing the oil from the pomace and all that oil is collected. Am buddy, you've got the first hints of olive oil, and you could actually stop right there in some people do. Yeah today. Of course, they I mean, the first thing he started doing was hydraulic presses. Because just epi was busy. There weren't enough. Just to go around, I guess this. But today a centrifuge, which I didn't know was is used which is makes perfect sense. Because you get a centrifuge spinning. And it's gonna sling all that pulp to the outside, and you know, the oil's going to going to separate and leave that pulp behind and there's no heat whatsoever..

"And again, one of the reasons why they were able to spread the stuff our advisor because all of trees, grow pretty well and all sorts of different climates as long as they're not over watered. They're gonna do. Okay. They like bright sunlight their hardy. Evergreen shrub like trees. Do you need a lot of water though, you can get more all lives by by watering them more than just neglecting them. But you don't want to over fertilize them from what I understand. There's a lot of they're really low maintenance fruit bearing trees from what I can tell. But yes, there there you step up the fertilizer you step up the water if you want to like do commercial all avoid production. But it's like an olive tree at home. And you're just growing it for fun. It's you can go out of town for a while. And not have to worry about your all of tree. Do you know who's into this big time? Who Chad Crowley? He's into growing olives. Well, he he's into olive oil and like to the point where like his retirement job might be olive oil like olive farming and growing and cultivating. Does he grow olives? No. But he's he's into it like to in a degree that I didn't fully understand until I talked to him about, oh, we should tell everybody all the millions of people listening who don't know who checked Crowley is. He directed that our TV show this Fisher another TV show. He was the director producer. He had a lot to do with. And that's guard him so much that he just wants to go live on. It's pretty much right? So the fruit of the olive tree is the olive, right? And they they ripen to black purple sometimes a little red. If you see a green all that means, it's not ripe yet. I did not know that did you know because I hate olives. Yeah. That's right. I was kinda hoping that I had like imagine. In that. But I don't like that's crazy, man. I love I love a lot of people. Don't like of stewed. That's cra-. I whatever they're crazy. They're crazy. They're crazy. All of you. Crazy. No. It's called personal tastes that we respect. I guess remember. I guess I keep forgetting when it comes to olives. Yes. So as the con the oil in the olive increases as it ripens. So you want him? It's kind of a very tight line that you walk is an olive farmer because you want these things to ripen as much as possible to get the most oil, but if they overripe in and then just start falling off the tree. They're no good. You gotta pick it off the tree. So like winemakers. It's very stressful thing to watch that crop that can imagine and it comes down to sometimes the day or the hour of the day to really maximize your yield. Yeah. Because if you think about it, you know, you have an olive tree with a bunch of all going on it you have to time the the ripening of those not under ripe overripe, but also not every olive on that tree is going to ripen simultaneously. So you so you not only do you have to time it so that they're right. But the maximum number of all on that tree are ripe at any given period to for sure I'll bet that is super stressful farming way more stressful than corn farming corn, basically grows itself. Just sit around in your easy chair and say hurry up corn, getting your your basket. Yeah. And then it just farts it off the tree right onto your plate the stock and does a little bow and says how do you do? He's just claps from your easy chair and say, I love corn trees. So some I I mean, if you have a small farm, and you're like an old of old family business. And in Italy, let's say you might still be hand-picking these things, which is great..

"All right, Chuck. So as I mentioned spoiler alert Christianity is one of the world's big three religions and olive oil vixen appearance in it. Did you know that I did? Well, all of do at least. Yeah. And it actually over delivered here. I think. Oh, yeah. I agree. He was he was kind of showing this stuff got excited. Right. We'll we'll go through some of these obviously in the book of Genesis. If anyone's ever heard the story of Noah after the flooding Noah sends out that dove and says, hey, dude, go out there and see what's what what we have in store for us. What's alive? What's dead? And give me a report and the dove said sure thing Noah and flew away and came back with an olive branch. So it it might sound like someone's under delivering mister dove. But what that meant was is there's life out there because the olive tree is growing and everyone loves olives. Right. There you go. That was the implication. Chuck, you're basically, a biblical scholar at this pretty much. But I mean think about it the dove carrying the olive branch like that's almost worldwide somebody can point to that. And be like, that's that's a good feeling is what that symbolize. We all know what that means. That means there's a flight coming right or somebody doesn't want to fight anymore. Right. So here's a here's a all branch that I taped to a dove. And I'm throwing it at you. What else? Oh, one of the things that struck me. Was that olive oil wasn't always used as food. It was used as definitely as an offering to the gods. It was portioned out. Very exactly and precisely and we actually have tablets with linear b writing for the missing, Ian culture that show that it was taken very seriously. It was like you get this little quarter ounce of all of you get this quarter of olive oil sign your name here to say, you got your olive oil kind of thing. And then part of it even goes to the gods. Right, right. Yeah. That's yeah. Exactly. And they have to sign for it. They they do zoos, but then it was also used in bathing cultures. Well, yeah, I mean, Emily has olive oil in her soap, right? Okay. So this was a little less soapy than that. This is a little more straightforward wherein. You would take a believe this was the Greeks right or the Romans. What's the difference? Now, it was an Athens. Okay. So the the ancient Athenians would use all of that was infused with like, an herb or something like that. And pour it on their body. And then use a stick called a stir Joel to scrape it off in that was bathing. Part of bathing. I should say just made so many talion Greeks mad because you said this is the same thing. Yeah. Well, I mean, it's to be fair Rome definitely model, that's culture almost exclusively on classical Greece. So come on. I would just joking though. Sure, they know that Chuck give it give him a I was just joking into like a stereotypical talion accent that'll complete it. He's just a joke, you know for fixed. So of course, ancient Egypt was involved. I it feels like anytime you're talking about some great, you know, from olive oil to peanut butter. Well, peanut butter. You can go find it on the walls of the tombs of ancient Egypt. And of course, the Romans just like it's either the Roman empire or the Chinese are the ones who are going to make advances by leaps and bounds. And in terms of olive oil. It was the Roman empire. Who was like really got those Egger cultural techniques down Pat for kind of scaling it on, you know, as far as their scale goes. Plus, they were the first ones to really spread all wheel production beyond the Mediterranean. I think the the Middle East because the Roman empire spread so far. And because all of was such an integral part of that culture. They they took all oil, basically everywhere with them and all of oil cultivation and production all of. Cultivation and olive oil production went far and wide because of the Romans. It's right..
