"Steve says Williamson is performing well. He's built up a lot of goodwill and faith I think and look at the record that he's got as a captain, especially with world cups. For people to doubt that I think is erroneous, you play the odds and I think that's what Kane does particularly well. Finn Ellen and Michael bracewell get more maiden call ups to the tournament and Milner's in at a pace option div Conway continues his wicked keeper. In golf Ryan Fox resumes his DP world tour season this week in Paris, but his preparations for the French Open have suffered an early setback, returning from a knee injury which forced him out of the PGA Championship at wentworth and the Italian open, fox's golf clubs failed to arrive in Paris. It means there will be very little practice today. My golf shoes are in there. What's the salt X and everything like that? So I can't really do much in that sense. I showed some trucks here, so I'll be able to grab a couple of wedges off that and do some practice in that sense, do some short game and just hit some balls and trainers on the range.

"Kitty is still in shock that they're the new holders. Yeah. Because it's pretty special man, it's been obviously been a long time since Wellington's hit the shield. We haven't had too many challenges over the years either. So to keep them aside, that's one of the first time in a long time is pretty special. North harbor has taken the spoils on the road in a key game for NPC playoff places. Harbors beaten Northland 48 21 in Hungary to leapfrog Northland's television and the tasman Marco and climb up to third place in their conference. Otago inflicted a first loss of the season on champions waikato, winning 27 20 in dunedin. Bay of plenty proved far too strong for struggling southland, keeping them winless with a 47 21 romp home in Tonga. That's news talk ZB news and sport to 6 past 8, Miles Davis next, with Sunday Night talk. News talks he'd be with a watch 24/7, Northland to Chattanooga, coromandel bay of plenty in the central high country, cloud increasing periods of rain tomorrow, with brief heavy falls possible. Gisborne to wad up a faggot and mana two cloud increasing overnight, scattered rain tomorrow. Horder were to Wellington, mostly cloudy, rain at times tomorrow. Marlborough and Nelson reign with heavy folds developing overnight and clearing and becoming fine tomorrow. A few showers will remain in the sounds tomorrow. Buller, Westland and fiordland, rain in the autumn, spreading north overnight, and then turning to showers late tomorrow morning. Canterbury and otago fine with high cloud, but a few spots of rain in the morning. Southland, high cloud, a few spots of rain developing this evening, then clearing early tomorrow. But a few showers likely, around Stewart island, chatham islands, partly cloudy. I'm Joe gill villain. That's

"There's there is some amazing places in this world are one thing that makes you laugh and say only in new zealand. One thing i love is the barefoot. Walking when i first came here i actually. I thought people didn't have enough money to afford shoes. And now i take my shoes off as often as possible. And so i laugh when i met the new world supermarket. I still laugh when. Somebody's like barefoot in the supermarket. I think that is the coolest naughtiest thing ever and i've done it once because it just feels so naughty so fun and it's not against the rules there. Which would be here. No you can go to restaurants barefoot you like like they want you to be careful because you're connected to nature. It's beautiful interesting okay. Well restaurants you. Probably get away with it here. But i did. Grocery store definitely not allowed. I grew up in new york. Like there's glass everywhere so different experience excellent and if you had to summarize the northlands in three words what three words you're gonna use warm can't majestic. I'm trying to find this word. That's let's not peaceful it's not a. It's like expensive expansive okay. Excellent and our guest again has been. Heather marquel from heather begins dot com and heather. If we're going to send people over to have their begins dot com first of all begins. What what did he begin and will she ever finish.

"Did you guide when you went to tonga. Certainly yes because they're fascinating and they're hilarious and they talk about the boats and did you know that princess di visited there and they actually took her out in one of those long votes. Oh interesting yes through. We're talking about the demary canoes. Yes workers they were there. Yes thank you for bringing up because yes why tonga is a must. See when you're here it's it's really amazing place. So i said that we have done other episodes of amateur traveler on even on the north island. If you want a companion episode of this if you have more time you can do this section. And then the trip that i did sort of goes as far north as there and then goes further south and more of the rest of the island including the coromandel peninsula and hobbiton and places like that so. Listen to that episode. I'll put a link to that in the show notes. We've got at least three shows. I think they cover the north island so excellent one do some wrap abortion but before i do heather anything else that somebody needs to know before they head to the northern part of the north island. I think i've pretty much covered it out. Bring layers and if you're here in the rainy season just bring an umbrella out with you. Even if it's a gorgeous sunny perfect blue sky day bring an umbrella with you. 'cause the weather changes fast up here. Well you mentioned when you're in this area. I was really surprised when you said that there was snow because what i found having spent a couple of weeks in north island was new zealand. Winter in the north island reminded me of california winter which is to say not winter those of real winter. That is you've got the wrong mental picture. That is not what about here. There was an arctic blast and with the climate song happening this. It's very rare that that up here get snow but apparently the west coast again which is more unruly weather was getting some style but very green area so obviously they get a fair amount of rain. Unlike where i live on fire so obviously layers are one of the reasons you're bringing that it's not just for the the cold but also for the wet exactly excellent couple. Wrap up questions. You were standing in the prettiest spot in the north country. Where are you standing on. What are you looking at. That's a tough question. I would say one spot. That was beautiful. That i actually forgot to mention was towery. Bay conscious also gorgeous. Do you know the rainbow warrior count. Yeah it's buried it right by the bay and you can actually scuba dive and see if that's your fancy but the view from across the atma towery bay where there's another chris. Booth sculpture that commemorates. It's actually uses the propeller from the ship. That view was probably one of my first stunning us. But the problem. I have when you asked me that question as one marston. At by the way marston cross looking out at the water another stunning view. that's right near carey carey. Everything here is like i could tell you. This is the most beautiful spotted ever seen. And that's the thing about new zealand. Like i'll say that and then tomorrow i'll go somewhere else and be like this is. Isn't this beautiful place. This excellent well. That's really one of the reasons i do. This show honestly is that somebody gave me a hard time last week. For being a real fan of california which is where i live but if i was such a fan i would go to all these other places in really enjoy them with that includes domestic international and everything..

"Hey it's warmer so i don't know whether okay cool so by the way that fish plays the fishing ship shop that without the dolphin in open oni poa fritters and other things and then once you get to hungary i would recommend staying at least two days if not three. 'cause it's this place that when you first got there you will say. Why on earth did this woman recommend. Funder i don't know why i'm here. It looks like an industrial little town. Why am i here. And where the toilets. But there's a toilet but in fact there are a few major things to see there. One is there's a tone basin which is where like there's all these boats docked there that are gorgeous. There's little clock museum which i mean. If you like clocks go if not just looking from the outside window you could see enough. But there's a sculpture trail and quite large. And that's where. I mentioned chris booth. He did a walk and wave sculpture there in partnership with another artist if you walk around as the whole basin and waterfront cross a bridge go to the other side can take you a good hour or more. And there's tons of amazing sculptures and then the other thing that's there is there are hikes that are gorgeous. The sculpture park. It's called the who tail loop sculpture park. So it's an actual loop that you take to see that. And then i did the mount par haka walk. It was a bit long in. It's uphill both ways. That's the thing here. I gotta tell you. I feel like in new zealand like it's always hill. Even when it should be downhill. I feel like i'm always walking up and it's insane but that must be why people here are in such great shape. 'cause they're just doing a lot of walking at the top of mount power haka. Is this beautiful view of fugger. A and there's a sculpture of immoral. It's a maori woman. That's a beautiful sculpture up there and there is a cross like if you got the sunlight correctly and i put this on my blog post to another blog post about gray. The sun shines through this cross and it glows red. And it's absolutely beautiful so that's a beautiful walk and that will take you..

"I should have mentioned that. By the way i mentioned russell but of course getting there you have to stop by and i know you've been to before cute little town as well a little bit more touristy though so that's why i'm saying if you can stay in russell it's really special but he has also lovely as i think you know that were done. I'm trying to remember where the boats go to the whole iraq where they leave. They do duly from here. That's why i assume from what you're saying and also the ferry so if you if you did the whole iraq war it includes free transit to russell can actually get off their do the cruise and on the way back. Get off russell. Come back the next day or so. It's kind of nice. You can combine two things in one and you get off at that. I can't pronounce it. But it's like the hulu poodle who got a long name. You get off at an island and you got to hike for forty five minutes which is an an island in the bay of islands as you said. Okay that sounds. I'm going to say that that's the right way to sit somewhere. there is a new zealand. Kiwi who's listening to this laughing at my my pronunciation. Yes so and it's a beautiful island. I've been lucky to do at twice. So i've seen the left and the right side of the hike and they're both equally beautiful. But i feel like you should see both or run if you're walking fast. So that's a beautiful stop. And then after you've spent like. I said if you can do a day or two in the area you wanna go down to stop often. Coca-cola the town right so there's the dreary mentioned earlier and now there's a town called mukalla which is known for their hunter. Vassar toilets and so officers this german guy. That was apparently really proven. And it's really funny by the way in new zealand famous people. Just it's not a big deal. It's just not the same as fame in america so as a side note a movie came out here within the last few months called james and is e. I don't know if you've heard of it. So it's about a maori man who is looking after his mother who's turning one hundred and planning her birthday and we get to know the family through the five days before the birthday and all the planning and it's really a great movie. James was living in college. Coa and so i get this. I contacted him on facebook. And i was like i love your movie. He and his mom drink whiskey. And i'm like i'd love to come and grab a whiskey or coffee with your mom and he actually responded and when i went to college where we met a cup of coffee in america. I can't even imagine a movie star even responding so that was lovely. Okay but you were going you were going there for the toilets i was and you really mean toilets this. You're talking about a public toilet. I mean a public toilet which is pretty cool sixteen years. I believe this may be the first time on amateur traveler that someone has said and one of the places. You need to stop this. This particular public toilet. So congratulations for. I hear thank you. Yeah and it's pretty elaborate and they've recently built a museum right behind the toilet so you can get the whole hunter vassar story when you say it's really elaborate. It's tile work in sculpture. Even maybe a yeah different medium..

"Donate dolphin really closely. There sorry yes good point so. The boulders are a lot of people if you look at a guidebook are gonna go to the mall rocky boulders which are in the south island and i've read a lot reviews of disappointment the koutoub holders up here are. They're amazing they're round boulders. Almost perfectly round and they're just stunning. You do need to check tied forecast because you can only see the cu boulder's at low tide obviously happens twice a day so make sure to time your visit appropriately and know that i thought logically. The tide would if low tide is at two pm today. I thought so it'll be at like two thirty or three. Pm tomorrow nope hours difference so there are websites. You can google the tide. The you have to get to the koutoub boulders in alignment with low tide. And when you do for now it doesn't have a lot of tourists so if you came soon after the borders open i would think it would be one of those little touristed locations where you walk along a beach and then you think when i got there i was like this is it. There are some little round boulders that were like up to my arm or something. It was like well. That's interesting but this is it. Keep walking and you get to these gigantic boulders and it's just stunning scenery in the boulders are all along the beach and it's just a stunning view so there's those boulders and for who are geologists. These are a concretion. I thought they might be so. I looked it up. Because i'm familiar. With seeing these in the western. Us in some places and they're an interesting geological formation. yeah speaking of ch- interesting geological formations the other one. The white boulders are as i understand at the only place in the world where it's assault stone limestone where the rain has fluted. It's made fluting patterns in assault which cannot happen unless there's acid rain and the rock is in a position long enough for that acid rain to wash over it enough for that to happen. The stones all started at the top of the hill. Which was it used to be a giant giant calorie forest and overtime. They've rolled down except for one which is called a magic rock..

"Some solution won't harm the coury now. I've heard different things. Like that's the mainstream and the when i took that cobb all making class with someone who's really plugged into nature and more thinks she might be part me like she felt that. Actually we need to expose the trees to different fungi and such so that they can actually protect themselves and build up persistence. So i'm not a scientist. I don't know which is the right answer but just so you know that you have to train of thought as you walk along. The trail over to the fire pook falls. I mean it's just just a beautiful peaceful walk that where he starts out like water to your left and sort of a hill on your right and then opens up and there are some gorgeous trees. Two of my favorite trees. Are i think they actually may be fungus or something but these trees have sort of their so like it up they have these nodded bulbous sort of. I don't know what these huge just big. It's actually like maybe not the most attractive thing but somehow it looks like they're spaces in them in fact and i'm not the only one that does i walked by this tree and touch the tree like everybody who passes by this tree too so make sure that you say hello. It's like an a wise old tree and then you just walk a little bit further and you will get to the far okay falls which if you're having been here and been lucky to be here in different seasons it's really interesting because when you're here in the ring season the water is pouring over at the entire falls from left to right and if you're here at a warmer time of year it's more..

"They are so new that there are. I've met new zealanders. That have no idea what i'm talking about and have never tasted one or her to one and they are as i understand it working to be able to freeze them somehow. Also that they're available all year round but for now just two months of the year and they are delicious. So highly recommend that in kerry kerry itself. There are five waterfalls all of which are so. There's two of them that you can easily do in one day. So i mentioned we. We talked about that f. Sound there's far pook eighth falls and rainbow falls. And if you go down to the carry inlets which by the way has a wishing well which also is to me any town with a wishing well right is just you gotta go and so right by that inlet. There's the stone store which has a museum up top highly recommend seeing and you can also from their visit. The campus the campus is the oldest building in new zealand. Serves a lot of rich history. Right here in kerikeri. There's a restaurant called the plough and feather which is now kind of pub style and it sits right on the water so you can have a beautiful view and also eat mostly pub food and sometimes they have like other food as well. I also recommend if you like drinking have a phychi sour fit. Joe is one of the fruit that grow up here. And i think it's originally from brazil and i had never tried. I didn't know they made look her out of it. So if you're familiar with fiscus our firm like chile or something. This is that that but with joe which is sweeter and they have them at the plough in feather just had one the other day. They're really good. And then as you walk towards where you'd pick up the trail for the fire pook falls. There's also the honey house. which is i believe. In the olden times they actually stored honey there. But now it's a cafe which is also lovely there's ducks and kuku and beautiful birds right out front. That i think are used to being fed by people. And then there's this bridge that crosses over the water that's the inlet and if you're lucky to be here during rainy season so right now it's winter and it's raining a lot up here. I've never seen in my life so many rainbows which is another reason to come to new zealand. The rainbows here are stunning and last year. Some friends and i came out after a storm and we saw a rainbow. And i've never in my life. We we saw four rainbows. It was three separate vans right. Three separate bows with space in between them and one of the rainbows did the color spectrum like back to back purple on one side yellow. Whatever the colors in the middle and then it was like a double band of yellow and it went all the way out through the spectrum to the right but it was like to band together. And if you're over that bridge and you can see that. I have a picture of a rainbow while i'm standing at that bridge..

So you've already skipped over the most touristed part of the northland's which is a fungal ria funkaway. That's the right end. But that's what i said. It was some hesitation because for those of you. Who don't know who aren't looking map it starts with w h yes which is an f. Sound so i speak six languages. So i really like to learn local languages when i travel and i have tried to learn a little bit of maori. Been looking for like a teacher or program. Hasn't quite happened. So i've made friends here. And there are a little but honestly the best teacher was the library book. I took out recently for kids. Taught me a little bit about the sounds. But yet w. h. is the sound and so if you hear us talking during the show about something that's like fungus a and i'm going to talk about far k. That's a w. h. At the beginning absolutely right. So you skipped over that and went up to kerry kerry tell me about kerry kerry. When i came appear as i said the pandemic had been declared an. I thought minus. Well they told me this.

I landed here zipped around the south island thinking it would be like a three week trip before heading off to australia. And then the pandemic was declared and then i ended up being locked down here in two weeks shy of my one and a half year anniversary in new zealand. And why should someone go to new zealand. Not just to avoid the pandemic so you can't get in now anyway but it would be stella reason but i think there's a lot of reasons i mean first off i don't know if you ever saw the disney film moana but i didn't know at the time that there's some talk that it may be based on new zealand.

But i think the forty nine is going to have that bit of a chip on the shoulder because of what happened in super bowl fifty four and they'll probably want to win this game regardless of the supreme saved game syrians are up to you. It's not the mar smooth time thing ever light coming if they come into the locker. Rooms martin's arrowhead stadium. Said all we need to get revenge for super bowl fifty four tonight. Isn't it like at least showing their super bowl fifty six no in wake one of the preseason. I can't. I can't imagine the foreign on a bus parade if they be us moore and i or if they're going to latch malfa northland's whereas we told you we'd get you eventually or they making section. They're gonna be walking down to hire ahead not during the full team. And i did not gonna do all they chevet. You know that social media will be a wash of china's funds no it they'll come out the woodwork. Kicking off tonight. You've flipped it less time for the going to be each issue. Shows was hold in damien. Williams. didn't make zone. Justice has been served in the form of a win. Our hedging preseason. Week one. Or i'll give my prediction and i'm going to say it's going to be at ten six to the chase. He's gotta be back kind of it's gonna be that kinda game. It really is republic. See one touchdown failed goal from the chiefs and just two field goals from from the forty. Nine I mean i mean i suppose i'm given the young kid trailer Bit of a bit of injustice ready because he's pretty much going to want to prove himself disney might get. You might get down to our but again it's football. It's as he can close. it could finish neonatal. i really wouldn't care to build. A speakers is just for his back his back. I just feel sorry for the guys that are going to be doing the post game. Show her right. That's all we got time for this week. Enjoyed the show.

"This is jonathan martin professor at northland college in wisconsin a number of years ago twenty seventeen. We did some really interesting research with a certain type of tree frog during his research. Jonathan here is that. There's a certain type of frog. That's fluorescent meaning. It glows under ultraviolet or black light. So he starts wondering about the tree frogs that he's studying you get on the internet you get a small cheap hand held black light and i think literally within days. I'm in my backyard because we have tree frogs all over the place. He's thinking i'm gonna make history by finding out that. This tree frog is fluorescent. Wander around his backyard and pretty quickly my old. There's one shine the light on it and nothing no fluorescence. I'm all right. Well that's disappointing. But i've got this light. What else do you do when you live in a remote northern place and you have a black light you start wandering around. Jonathan starts taking these regular nighttime walks and under a black light leaves that are normally green. You know they're kind of a blood red color mushrooms. Look blue likens glow orange species of shrub. That's very common here. And the sap glows like a glow stick. He keeps finding plants that flores and he wonders if he's discovering something for the first time i've found a number of plant species it was like that's crazy. And then you look it up in. Nineteen fifty so and so documented on e. suckle fluorescent sap. He does the same thing with animals. But so many fluorescent animals have already been documented. Insects fish scorpions. There was a sea turtle in shark and things like that but then one night john. Here's this weird sound coming from his bird feeder this and was like flying. Squirrels are here. And so i just instinctually turn the light on this and poof. This blaze of pink jumps back into the trees like that is crazy. I can't believe that fluorescent fish insects amphibians. None of that was new. But jonathan had never heard that a mammal could flores like that did just happen did it. And so i sit quietly a comeback. And i very slowly kind of the flashlight up and that thing is glowing absolutely hot pink under the beam of the uv light. And i. i'm no i'm hassenfeld. And this week unexplainable how jonathan's accidental discovery of one flying fluorescent squirrel scientists to wonder.

Dr. Elaine Ingham, Soil Scientist

"This week. Cultivating places women's history month interviews gets to the very basics of horticultural work with soil. The soil world is integral foundational to the plant world. Since the nineteen eighty s mainstream academic soil science has been transformed into a search for biological discovery. It is a fundamental shift from a science that seemed blinded by the theories of the Green Revolution from the nineteen twenty s through the nineteen seventies. The Term Green Revolution refers to innovations intended to increase food supply around the world specifically through introductions of new often dwarfed sometimes genetically modified varieties of cereal grain crops developed for high yield along with introductions of synthetic fertilizers herbicides and pesticides often derived from the chemical byproducts of World War Two the Green Revolution asserted increased production of and reduced pest and disease damage to crops. Managed by these men made inputs over traditional agricultural methods. Beginning in the late nineteen seventies however more voices started questioning the long term results and benefits versus serious disadvantages of these methods. Many of the voices raised in opposition. Women's voices among them was Dr Elaine. Ingham Elaine's work in microbiology. At the Colorado State University for Collins in the nineteen seventy s through the nineteen eighties began illuminating. The incredibly complex living systems at work in healthy soil. Her work is strongly associated with the concept of a soil food web and in the beginning of this century. She is the founder of Soil Food Web Inc and she's here to share more about her work. Welcome Elaine thank you very much. I'm very honored to be here. So you have had a really long interesting career in which you have accomplished and articulated some really interesting. And seminal things for our field of interest Plant life here and how it relates to so much else. Can you describe for listeners? What does your work consist of right? Now especially as it relates to soil and plant life lane right now where. I'm still continuing to work on. What is the soil food web? How is it different in different? Parts of the planet given climate season changing weather patterns. Things like that. How do these organisms interact with each other to help? Plants grow or what are the conditions that results in the disease causing or not beneficial organisms winning out over the beneficial's all those stages of succession and so many people doesn't don't understand that it's the biology that pushes succession along at. What's really altering things so that next stage of plant life will succeed into that system and then of course. Those new plants communion alter the biology in the soil which sets the stage for the next stage of succession. So lots were of information yet to go and only really begun to scratch a surface soil. The MORE QUESTIONS. We answered the more questions. Come up I think is is so often the case so before we get into the technicalities of this big interesting wide world that you are studying take us back a little bit and set the scene for us of of where you grew up and the kind of journey of your work of the people in places in plants that grew into a person. For whom this would be your. Life's Focus Elaine. I grew up in Minnesota so the frigid northlands and I thought every place in the world had twenty five feet of snow in the wintertime. That was just how everybody else lived. It was a kind of a shock when I learned it was different than that so my father was a veterinarian At the University of Minnesota and he would take me into his laboratory. He took me because I was the only one of his offspring who was interested in laboratory work and I remember at the age of six years old. My father sat me down at a microscope. Wasn't quite sure what to do with me. I couldn't be running around the halls getting into trouble. So what is he going to do plops down in front of a microscope and says county coli so he showed me how to make the microscope slides and start counting and he wanted me to do twenty five fields and he figured that it would take me a long time to get twenty five fields. If he coli counted he was right. So a my first introduction to the microscope my father and I worked on all my science projects through the course of middle school and high school and I went off to college at Saint Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota Various Scandinavian Norwegian school. One at the top Pre Med schools in the United States. But I decided I did not want to go to medical school. I had met some of the people I worked as a In the heart hospital as a lab dishwasher during my senior year and discovered. I really didn't like those people. They were too con- focused on the wrong things. I wanted to stand how the world works. Not How you get the patient to spend the most money on the most expensive drugs and you know all of that. medical It was just an anthem. It to me so I decided to go to graduate. School went to Texas am where I worked in Marine Microbiology on the digest organisms in the digestive systems of oysters and freshwater mussels on started understand that you know science purports many ways the academic world reports that it knows everything we found all the answers. And so just ask me. I can answer all your questions and began to discover that that is absolutely not a case There's so much we don't know that it's overwhelming and the methodologies that people often use to try to collect the data and then the misinterpretations that they perform in explaining the world if if you take the material inside the digestive system of an oyster in played it out on a petri dish you're only going to find two or three species because we are so changing the the habitat think about the inside of an oyster versus In a medium in a plastic petri dish that you spread a point one meal of choice tres digestive system and and how many microorganisms well? I looked through the microscope at those organisms and I noted that there were literally a hundred different species of bacteria that I could see a couldn't identify them to genus and species. But I could see there. Were one hundred different things that were totally different. Egmore Doing very different things and so I figured I should be seen that many little colonies coming up on my petri dishes and I was seen one or two. And so how can you use that method? Petri plate methods. Do not allow you to get an inkling of what the diversity is out there in the real world and yet that was the standard of microbiology. That's what you had to do to start the organisms in now. Fill in the blank. Whatever you want to write so there'd been a lot of work done on the ecology of different ecosystems that were just completely inappropriate. When it comes to understanding any of these

Sandra would be called upon to babysit bobby but Linda we call home often to check on them and then Sandra would be annoyed by that. Linda's CO workers at the local hospital had really good things to say about Linda she was kind and carrying she was a hard worker but you know she did have a drinking problem and she started showing up for shifts with alcohol on her breast which was a dealbreaker of course or yeah it's not GonNa be good for your job longevity is it now especially when you have peoples lives in your hands but and you said this I'd emphasized that her coworkers pretty much all had good things to say about her I think you have to realize that alcoholism is a disease and have some empathy here and I think there was just a huge lack of empathy from Sandra Beth which I understand they're teenagers northland that's the job of teenagers to feel like your parents are a bunch of jerks yes in treat them badly right so although Sandra resented her mother's earlier to keep her job she was even more unhappy to have her at home all the time Sandra Beth told their father that Linda wasn't there for her kids as she should have been and that are alcoholism was just getting worse now dad's response according to the girls will see told them to call the police if it was unmanageable vice dead so here's Linda she's unemployed she's in love clearly with the wrong guy and she's deeply in the clutches seven addiction so she and her kids clearly need help she wasn't functioning and Sandra blamed her pretty much for everything that was wrong with their lives she really did so bobby and Beth went to spend the summer of two thousand two with their grandparents in Europe now bobby was only there for a few weeks so when he returned Sandra had to take care of him he was Beth Sandra's half brother but only spent weekends and holidays with his dad so his dad wasn't really a fulltime father either Nori wasn't when Beth returned in the FAW Linda was in really bad shape and Sandra hated her more than ever he was convinced that things would never improve and she wanted to convince that that killing their mother would solve all their problems so she'd taken a big jump over this time period Armand doesn't even care about us the Stewart right now back in two thousand one Sandra had called the children's aid society to report abuse by Linda's but Sandra in Beth didn't say anything about Linda's drinking at that point Linda told the social worker how great her daughters were and she said that they were both responsible and really helped her out watching their little brother while she was at work so they kind of did the cover up thing when the social worker showed up but then a couple of months later Sandra called again and she told them that her mother was an alcoholic who had made them lie to the social worker when they visited last time she said that Linda was glint mean and do not offer any discipline but see I s really didn't believe her and didn't get involved so in Sandra's mine she dreamed of being a novelist a movie producer a rock star and she talked about more practical job she'd like to do like a flight attendant or a paramedic but

Moussa Sissoko admits getting too tired playing in Pochettino's diamond

"Off to the seven to to walloping enhanced by and this is what they're spurs midfielder Moussa so to say we get tired too quickly. When we play with a midfield diamond jubilee it was October Fest Foot by Northland don't think Soco saying anything and he didn't see with our own? Is that what what do you make of him and she going so public with with this criticism so some of these guys do not. I guess they haven't had media training. I guess they do an odd question. Well you just have no commonsense right as it pertains to your essay question. You don't have to answer it. You can dance around did even if you feel that this is the case what is there to gain for Mussa's so come on and say we get too tired when we play in diamond what somebody's GonNa feel sorry I four u Somebody's GonNa say oh. I'm so sorry that you have to run into midfield. I'm so sorry you have to tackle people. I'm so sorry that you have to get it close to midfield player. Come on man honestly this is we're talking about Champions League and we're talking about playing at home playing against via Munich. We're in this guy is bringing up. We're getting tire. Come on is this further sign Shankar and the beam plenty already that the players and the manager getting further apart yes yes I see that for this reason this as far as I'm concerned the only players in the park who have any right to complain about getting tired because of nineteen minutes are you wing box given what's asked of them in modern day football. If no you complaining about getting tired of formation it points to something and fog far deeper than than just answering a question incorrectly my opinion and given what we've seen from Spoo- so far this season this just visa Mussa's who looking for an excuse to try to explain their poor performances looking for an excuse that somehow absolves him mm-hmm and the rest of the midfield of any kind of responsibility furthermore kind of throws a manager under the bus so which is why answer my question your your question the way that I did. I think it's it's it's alarming to have a player answering the question that Frank. What did you make of what's going on a spur from a farming? The statistics are pretty stop. They've won nine. They lost twenty eight games in all competitions. Why why the exceptional season last season where the their right level? I'm not sure maybe they were playing at one hundred and forty percent. Maybe they were fortunate. Let's say lucky when you see Lucas scoring three goals in the semi final against away from home when you everybody thinks it's it's dead we want something from the Spurs may be the not able to recreate because they were here. It was too much for them and they just came back as human being this season they showed the weaknesses reina what the MHM weaknesses where Eden by a real fortune last season and now you see the conflicts coming up always dot com and from USA Sissoko saying to the Koch. We don't want us to play later because I think we don't like the way you make us play and prominence becomes becomes reality when when in fact you can't answer the questions on the field and last year they were able to do so because they were playing at the maximum because they oughta spirit together and because they were lucky did not anymore in those three statements interesting you'll photon over achievement because guys would look at the starting eleven it is still a fabulous team on on on paper. It is not an argument be made that they'd just been a victim of great by inside on on Tuesday night but also suffering and they've done that before you would say it's just a slow start. If you don't go back to the end of last season on how much of a struggle it was other than Champions League and maybe making the deep running Champions League mass a lot of the issues that we're going to get over chief. Did they overcharged grossly over achieve. You can meet well. I mean even even even the biggest I fan will be like attendance. League final. I look over achieve got fortunate but they took advantage of that good fortune and give them credit for that but clearly there's been issues with this his team since deep deep issues back then that they haven't resolved they did not answer it through the summer and they have an answer yet and early on in the the season for me. It's not only the players is not only puts it. The it's just a whole feeling oh spurs right now seems to be while they go brighton and Walford Nixon the primarily that may be just the remedy that they have all due respect to break known.

Why Do Flying Squirrels Glow Hot Pink in UV Light?

"Today's episode is brought to you by smart water twenty years ago. Smart water, reimagined, what water could be from thoughtful bottle designed to supporting smart people who are changing our world through fresh thinking. Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Bam here. It's amazing. What you can find. If you shine a flashlight into your backyard trees, a biologist in Wisconsin have made a rather startling discovery that way in part startling because it apparently hadn't been recorded until now three different species of flying. Squirrels specifically southern northern and Humboldt flying squirrel, which are found across North America and into Central America sport light Brown for that when spotlighted with ultra-violet illumination lights up a hot bubblegum pink the phenomenon occurs on both the top and bottom services of the flying. Squirrels though, it's the underside of a flying. Squirrels carriage, including the flaps of skin that spread out when the squirrel glides from tree to tree really glows Jonathan Martin a biologist at Northland college in Ashland. Wisconsin made the discovery in the forest one evening just by shining a UV flashlight into the tree canopy he was looking for lichens, which are certain type. Of frogs and flora that light up in UV light. That's when he heard the church of a southern flying, squirrel as the squirrel glided by he shined the flashlight on it. And he saw a flash of fuchsia. Martin and his colleagues soon found themselves examining the skins of flying. Squirrels at the science museum of Minnesota. And the field museum in Chicago. They took photos of the skins under visible, light and ultra violet light all but one specimen of the gliders glowed pink that has been variously compared to bubble gum dayglo and lycra from the nineteen eighty s there is also the study republished in the January twenty third twenty nineteen issue of the journal of Malecki, the pink is caused the researchers say by the furs fluorescence, which is what happens when light is absorbed in one wavelength and emitted in another you may remember an episode. We did about how scorpions fluorescent bright green and ultraviolet light some birds also have this trait some fish too few mammals do though flying. Squirrels are nocturnal and are most active at dusk and dawn, no other squirrels in North America are known to possess this ability to floor s including tree squirrels like the eastern gray though, there are over. Two hundred and fifty squirrel species around the world and to be fair. The researchers have not yet tested other species for the next question is what purpose could this fluorescent serve. Humans can't see ultraviolet wavelengths except under special lighting, but other animals can one theory suggests the pink is used to confuse als, which as it turns out also have undersides that Flores a similar pink ELS prey on flying. Squirrels among other mammals, perhaps the squirrels evolved to mimic als. So as not to be eaten by them another theory, which is already being challenged is that the pink attracts potential mates a flying. Squirrels have mating seasons. But their flamboyant fluorescence is available for viewing year round. Anyway, it's not even clear that squirrels can see in UV wavelengths. Ultimately, the researchers point out that age old impetus of science, this is proof of how much we don't know and still need to learn the study concluded the ecological significance of this. Trait warrants further investigation. Today's episode was written by Jimmy Allen and produced by Tyler clang for I heart media, and how stuff works for more on this and lots of other topics.

How Germany got to 40 percent renewable electricity

Climate Cast

How Germany got to 40 percent renewable electricity

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Germany reaches forty percent renewable energy. What can we learn from that energy transition? I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hutler. This is climate cats. Germany produced forty percent of its electric power from renewables in twenty eighteen emissions. There are on pace to fall sixty two percent from nineteen ninety levels by twenty fifty. That's an unthinkable greenhouse gas reduction pace here in the US. But in Germany, many say that's not fast enough. Toby mature is founder and director of energy consultant e three analytics in Berlin, we talked via Skype about power and emissions trends in Germany wind power is the largest slice of the pie. But one of the remarkable things of Germany's overall energy transition is that they've succeeded where a lot of other countries in a lot of other parts of the world haven't done as well. And that's really diversifying as fully the different sources of renewable energy that they draw from. So it's not just wind. Not just solar. They've really gone for the full basket of domestically available renewable resources. So Germany is well ahead of the US. With government action on climate how about public opinion on climate solutions. How is it different? From the US awareness is dawning more and more that climate is starting to have very real impacts on things like agricultural output. Yeah. We had our dry summer in decades in Germany and a lot of farmers have seen reduced yields pretty much across the board. And when it starts to really have those kinds of across the board impacts on rural communities on farmers on on on average citizens through higher food prices people. I think recognize the need here more. So than in North America. I think in general for really taking action on climate change. I think in Germany in particular. They've also seen the benefits of taking climate change seriously by investing in the energy transition. They've been able to create a lot of jobs, and that I think has been really critical ingredient to maintaining public support at such high levels us. Site, Germany as a leader in the energy transition much farther, along than the US, what can the US learn about what Germany has done so far one of the key ingredients to making it work and also to making it popular has been the citizens can invest themselves. So it's not just large utility companies or large foreign investors building big projects to achieve the goals at the government sets out in the beginning. The whole transition was driven very much from the bottom up by individuals and communities and farmers who could put their own money on the table. Go to the Bank at alone and invest in new sources of generation and earn a decent return doing. So I think that's really one of the key ingredients that many other countries have continued to struggle to get right is making it such that the participation can be broad in the energy transition. And I think that's really at the heart of what's made Germany, so successful Toby tour founder and director of energy. Consultant E three analytics in Berlin. Thanks for sharing your insight today. Thanks ball. A pleasure. My name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And that really is kind of what catapulted how we approach energy conservation and sustainability in Warren now, you know, you've traveled over to Germany you've learned what they're doing. And it just gives you some credence in what you're doing back in your community. People are interested. It's a conversation starter are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. I mean, there's climate change is happening. Of course, you can have lots of different conversations on your thoughts on climate change. But something is happening. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is that could make a difference for future generations. I don't know. What's wrong with them? That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter.

In Africa, climate challenges and opportunities

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Climate challenges and opportunities in Africa. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter. This is climate cast. You know, it's fourteen thousand miles from Capetown South Africa to Minnesota but climate changes in sensitive climate zones. Like Africa can have a much wider impact. I talked about that with Matt Brown. He's the nature conservancies regional managing director for Africa. You know, a lot of the East African countries are seeing significant changes in the rainfall patterns, maybe as predicted to get quite drier. And there's a lot of food security issues and north and central Africa. So Africa's a big place Paul. There's fifty four countries over two thousand languages as you know. So it's a little bit of different shifts and impacts in different parts of the continent. So how do you decide which countries need the most resources we looked largely at where we can improve large intact systems that have the ability to be more resilient to climate change. And allow species to move and shift protection is has a higher return on investment than restoration. So a lot of our work is focused on. On finding intact ecosystems, and they all include people, of course. But finding ways to make sure that those systems persist over time like many journalists this year met we reported on Cape Town's, low reservoir levels earlier in the year. I'm curious about your perspective on how that played out this year. And as the rainy season finally arrived, similar to California. There's a lot of issue with agricultural offtake both for fruits as well as for vineyards. And then there's the consumption domestically the days euro proclamation in Cape Town brought a lot of awareness to water issues and water scarcity, but I think it helped create more willingness for behavior change, but the threat is still out there as it was yesterday. So we're we're moving out quickly to put better adaptation and better practices in place to try and secure water for the long term. And I asked this question to a lot of different people in a lot of different ways. But we're seeing climate change impact the hydrologic cycle where it's raining and how hard it's. Raining is shifting. How important is water in the work that you're doing water is critical in the work that we do. And so the changes in the hydrologic cycle as a result of warming. Global temperatures can be pretty catastrophic unless we are able to reduce that amount and manage the movement of wildlife access to water for people living in urban environments and have better buffer systems. I do feel like that there's a lot of positive interventions that we can pursue but the water cycle, and how hydrology is potentially going to be impacted is quite severe. If we just sit back and maintain a business as usual scenario, Matt Brown nature conservancy regional managing director for Africa. Thanks for sharing your perspective today. Thank you, all my name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And then they come over here. See what we're doing? You know, one of it uses low hanging fruit that we learned the first year we were in Germany was they don't have any paper products, plastic product styrofoam products. So when we came back to the city, all we removed all of that. So now just kind of started it, and then now we have a mandatory curbside recycling program, but are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. When we were in Germany, you know, they would always say five hundred years from thousand years from now they're not doing their energy transition right now because of the here and now it's for generations later. And I guess that's why I think that this is important. Also is I want my great great grandchildren to enjoy the same quality life in northwestern Minnesota that we have and in the whole country the whole world. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is could make a difference for future generations. I don't know what's wrong with that. That's climate cast.
