How Do I Know When to Bring in Pots This Fall?
"Denise send us an email to read at plan talk radio dot com and denise says hi fred. This is my first year gardening. So congratulations to you. And i was wondering how do i know which potted plants to bring indoors when the temperatures start to drop or do i just leave them out over the winter. I'm in zone seven. Thank you okay. No her circumstances are different. I'm going to guess she's probably from Well darn close or even south of the ohio river etc and this gives her different options. We would have here at central. Ohio are certainly north except for people that are having a wonderful display from there Mimosa tree right now that that's just Uncommon good luck or he's being extremely careful but anyhow as to denise. I hope she kept the tags. I hope the tags would have indicated whether these are tropicals or not for example. We made mention his hibiscus again. This this time There is a tropical hibiscus. That's absolutely magnificent. Ina pot indoors in the wintertime. now it's can be out all summer. They're they're full of glorious flower colors. There are many many of them. However here you would have to take that plant in For the winter because the top and the root zone in the container probably would freeze So she might be able to keep a high viscous of the tropical nature outdoors over winter. I would say it's it's pretty if it because where she's zone seven zero to ten above and anything Anything of a tropical nature is not going to like it. Below twenty-eight a book yeah now the reason i say twenty eight is. There's there's some latitude on some plants to live through freezing if it's a light freezing.
Rachael Clark of Northern Kentucky University on Hope in Poverty
"And twenty thirteen northern kentucky university began a partnership with the west side neighborhood in newport a community across the ohio river from cincinnati and a few miles from our campus. The west side would receive help with parks community gardens public art and even a bicycle maintenance class. That was a way to teach science and math while having fun in k. U. students in turn would have experiential education opportunities early on in. Ku's community engagement team asked. If one of my psychology classes could measure hope in the residents of the west side. We agreed and also measured meaning in life. Hope is important because over the last two decades it has emerged at the moderately strong predictor of wellbeing on the west side. Most families live at or below the poverty line you might reasonably expect residents to have lower hope and meaning in life. They didn't my students surveyed west side residents and for the sake of comparison in k. U. students our findings published earlier. This year showed no major difference between the two groups. Indeed the newport residents generally scored higher for hope and meaning in life especially among newer residents. Who share a vision of what the west side might become as residents take greater ownership of the old neighborhoods future rather than seeing it to absentee landlords because of these surprising findings we decide to explore a results with a focus group with learned. That residents while hopeful. Personally were less optimistic about external forces shaping their neighborhood. They felt for example that municipal services were more readily provided to wealthier residents neighborhood and socio political factors impacted their levels of hope more so than individual factors still that didn't diminish their personal faith in their future or their commitment to a better westside.
The Curse of Transylvania University
"Established in seventeen. Eighty transylvania is the oldest university west of the allegheny mountains. Its name means across the woods in latin and the university was named after the colony of transylvania which had also never heard about. Have you a little history lesson about the tiny short-lived colony of transylvania. So as an american colony founded in early seventeen seventy five by north carolina. Land speculator richard henderson. He was head of. The transylvania company henderson is investors. Bought lands west of the southern and central appalachian mountains from the cherokee nation in exchange for the land. The tribe received goods worth around ten thousand british pounds. About one point. Five million now. This land was also claimed by both the virginia colony and was at the time the province of north carolina american pioneering frontier explorer daniel. Boone was hired by henderson to establish parts of the transylvania settlement. The revolutionary war though complicated things and the states were forming around transylvania's establish towns kentucky tennessee north carolina eventually absorbed their respective parts of the colony henderson was compensated with a land grant along the ohio river in western kentucky and where the current town of henderson was founded. So he's still got something. so what remains. This colony. is transylvania university transylvania university at its start was a single log cabin in boyle county kentucky. Its first sponsor was an episcopal church though it's kind of known to be presbyterian still even the school moved to lexington in seventeen eighty nine in the early eighteen.

"Plan dot org's and by the listeners and supporters of KQED Public radio now 5 35. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin, and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning, a federal opioid trial centers on what drug distributors did to Huntington, West Virginia. It's a city spread out for several miles along the Ohio River that was devastated by the opioid epidemic. That is, of course, true of many cities, which is why so many are watching this one trial. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Mann is also watching. He's in Charleston, West Virginia's capital, Brian. Good morning. Good morning. Steve wanted steak. Tens of billions of dollars. Potentially. I mean, this trial focuses on this one city Huntington in Campbell County, but it's really a test case. The outcome could show whether these massive corporations amerisourcebergen, cardinal Health and McKesson, whether they're on the hook for helping clean up the opioid crisis nationwide. What did they do? But what we know factually Steve is that these drug wholesalers kept shipping millions of opioid pills to pharmacies in Kabal County, West. Virginia's attorney general, Patrick Morrissey, told me. This went on for years, even after addiction rates and overdoses surged. Absolutely outrageous when you see the value of pills that are flooding into these small communities to assert that somehow you didn't know or Well, we didn't think it had to be enforced this way. This is an absurdity of that Everyone knew. And internal documents revealed during this trial do show these companies kept detailed records of the really astonishing volume of opioids. They kept shipping. Yeah, and you've reported on this in the past way more drugs than that small population would ordinarily have consumed in a reasonable fashion. What to the companies say to defend themselves, though. Yeah, they said they did nothing wrong. There was testimony here yesterday from an executive named Michael Orient Day who oversees opioid shipments for McKesson. One of the company's being sued, documents show he and other executives kept raising the amounts of opioids that pharmacies could order. But or anti pointed out that McKesson told the U. S Drug Enforcement Administration exactly how its safety monitoring system worked, and for the most part, he said, federal regulators allowed it to keep happening. And that's really the argument being made by the drug industry. They say they were just filling legal prescriptions with oversight from the government, although aren't they having to confront in this trial evidence that suggests what they thought of their customers? Yeah, There've been some embarrassing moments. One email chain made public during this trial showed top executives that AmerisourceBergen sharing a joke about people addicted to prescription opioids, calling them hillbillies talking about their hunger for hillbilly heroin, a reference to Oxy cotton. I was talking yesterday with Amanda Coleman, who runs a shelter for people in Huntington. Who are homeless and experiencing addiction, and she brought this up the utter disregard for lives here. The dehumanization of words like hillbillies. It's horrifying. And one of AmerisourceBergen executives was asked about this email during the trial. He said he regretted forwarding it and said the company does have an ethical culture. He described it as being of the highest caliber if they're forced to do more than express regret. If they're forced to pay. What would the money go for? People here in West Virginia, said they hope their share of any payout would go to drug treatment and therapy programs. I spoke about this with her Dickerson, who's been on and off opioids for years. We need it waited with human beings. We're not animals. We just lost our way. We're just people looking for help. So there's a lot at stake here, Steven. We should know soon. Whether these companies they're going to be forced to provide some of that help. Brian Mann, NPR's addiction correspondent. Thanks so much. Thank you, Steve. The European Union had little influence in stopping the fighting between Israelis and Palestinians. That's partly because the EU has always struggled to speak with one voice when it comes to the conflict Attitudes have been changing in Europe since the last major bout of fighting in the Middle East seven years ago. And Europe's approach to the Israeli Palestinian conflict is more divided than ever. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley has more As fighting raged between the Israeli military and Hamas, EU foreign ministers held an urgent virtual summit The blocks, foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell said They were almost unanimous on the need for a ceasefire and the impossibility of returning to the status quo. How many times we went to violence again and Gaza was destroyed and then we rebuild Gazza. This is not an option. We're appears today We have said something very important. We need a true political solution. That's the only way to bring peace nearly unanimous because hungry, refused to endorse the statement. You love it, a fellow with the European Council on Foreign Relations, says There's two reasons why Eastern European countries often paralyze European policy toward the Middle East conflict, He says. Some, like Poland want to keep us support so rarely veer from the U. S line. And others, like Slovenia, Austria and Hungary have populist leaders who identify with Israel's right wing leadership. It's I think more about the perception of what they themselves called Judeo Christian values. There is a large component off ideology involved in it. And specifically with Viktor Orban, the leader off Hungary. I would argue that he sees within Israel and within Netanyahu a reflection off his own identity and image. It's more than this. Israel Palestine. It's about this alignment off ethno Nationalist government's Because of the Holocaust. Germany has always been a solid supporter of Israel.

know your rights before you talk to the police
"The criminal justice. System. It's a pretty elegant thing crafted over centuries of refinement. You know some people don't even realize that our system of law and justice predates the birth of this country. By centuries. When settlers came to America, they brought English common law with them. And although there have been modifications and additions to that system, the basic structure remained. Things like precedent, which is the basic concept of relying on previously decided cases and using those established guidelines traditions. If, you've ever heard to lawyers argue they'll say things like Miranda, the Arizona. That's a reference to a prior already decided case that instructs the judge on how to rule on the case before the. It's up to the judge to weigh all the various arguments for a fair decision. And if there's clear precedent than the judge will usually rely on that previous ruling. Otherwise, he may decide to go the opposite way and in doing. So create new law and set a new precedent. That's often not the case and doing so could lead to an appeal and a reversal from a higher court. Anyway. This is starting to turn into a civics lesson, but it's funny just how many normal everyday citizens don't even know the basics of how our system of laws and justice works. It's really quite something. Even before the English, modernized in the seventeenth century, the roots of law date all the way back to Greek and Roman civilizations. In Ancient Greece if you killed somebody, their family had the right to kill you. At the end of the seventh century BC a man named Drako. The first legislator of Athens wrote a series of laws regarding intentional and unintentional homicide. The punishment for most of these cases was death. That's where the term draconian laws comes from. It refers to the overly harsh antiquated punishment for a crime. Thankfully since then we've made a lot of modifications to the law and our Constitution reflects the society that puts the rights of the individual before the needs of the state. For example. That case I mentioned a minute ago Maranda v Arizona. Well, that's the case where the concept of Miranda rights originated. We'll talk more about that later. But for now, all you need to know is that you should never talk to cops. They're not there to help you or be your friend. They're not looking out for your best interests when you're sitting in that hard cold chair of their eight by eight foot interrogation room. Oh. And before you start constructing your angry emails, I don't care if your husband or father best friend is a cop. I'm not saying all cops are bad. So calm your outrage. I'm giving you good solid life advice based on years of experience with cases like this. When you find yourself across from a COP whose? Questions about a crime. The only thing they're trying to do at that point is to get you to slip up so they can put you in jail. That is after all their job pudding criminals in jail. So, if you did something, don't talk to cops. If you didn't do something. Don't talk to cops just say it with me folks. Don't talk to cops. Ask for a lawyer at follow their advice. Or you may find yourself in the same predicament. That William hurt that. Jones statistically talking earlier. Wouldn't the information you'll and make sure we know who we're talking to.

The Pandemic Cut Down Car Traffic. Why Not Air Pollution?
"So there was definitely one picture but I remember seeing a freeway in Los Angeles arguably the traffic capital of the United States and there were no cars. It was like empty for your way clear blue sky and now you came here on this podcast and you're taking that all away from me. Well actually the air was cleaner in Los Angeles in March. It was the longest stretch of cleaner that had been recorded in decades. And you know that's a big deal for la because there is not great. Sometimes there's high levels of ozone Which is a pollutant that sworn by all the that comes out of tail pipes and smokestacks and power plants? What it does is it. It mixes in the air ground level. You add some sunlight and you've got ozone and it's not good stuff it exacerbates respiratory and cardiovascular illness so it makes sense that everybody would be pretty psyched about cleaner air. Yeah and it seemed like that made sense right with all the lockdown and people staying at home. I mean they started asking the air regulators about that like Philip fine of the South Coast Air Quality Management district through a lot of pressure on us to come up with the answer that everyone wanted to hear which the is that the covid nineteen measures have cleaned the air and southern California. But here's the thing it was also really Ramey in. La During the same time and rain helps clear out the air so as the weather is dried out. Recently air quality has gotten worse again. I mean went back to the unhealthy. Category actually yeah. Okay so I guess when you think about. There was this forty percent reduction in traffic and only a fifteen or so decrease in ozone in lots of parts of the country. It's not nothing right like not much. Not A ain't nothin' yeah. It certainly helped some but you know believe it or not sound kind of strange cars are not. La's biggest source of pollution comes to the pollutants that make ozone And that's actually true in a lot of places in the US Which is fine told me that means what's happening. Now with reducing car traffic just enough read a lot of newspaper articles over the past couple weeks decided if only we can have people telecommute one day a week across the entire base in our air quality problems will be solved and unfortunately it's not that simple. That's because the big source in La is trucks A reason is because there's just a lot of shipping that comes through the ports of L. A. and Long Beach and they handle about thirty percent of the country's shipping container traffic and that gets moved around on trucks after it comes in so traffic. It didn't decrease as much as the car. Traffic did so that pollution was still being omitted. Okay so trucks are the problem in La. Becky would about places yet so other places have other pollution sources like Pittsburgh. We looked at Pittsburgh and ozone only felt by nine percent about between mid-march and the end of April and when I asked atmospheric chemists about this they were like the reason is coal. Oh the Col- cold. It's burned to make electricity primarily but also call. It's used to make steel right. The history of Pittsburgh is all about steel scar. Have some very active industrial sources near the city in this kind of at the University of Pittsburgh? Emily Elliott says Cole is really dirty work in closer proximity to the places that are generating power coal fired power plants in the Ohio River valley that contribute quite a bit to pollution. Okay Sup- Pittsburgh has coal. La Trucks anything else. I should know about. Yeah Houston has this thing with factories. Oh Right Rebecca Hersher. We've talked about that on the show before indeed. We have and for those who might not remember Houston has one of the largest concentrations of petrochemical facilities in the country so to see how ozone levels have changed their versus other places. That was an interesting question for us. And what we found. Is that those facilities. They mostly kept operating during the pandemic actually in fact a lot of them they make the raw materials for masks and gloves the PCP hospitals need so desperately right now. So I'm guessing that ozone levels decrease a lot in Houston exactly ozone decrease less in Houston than did in La okay so it sounds like industrial pollution versus pollution from our like. Private cars is a big deal. Are Scientists looking into that? Becky like how much industry plays into this. Yeah they are.

It recently passed a law doubling down subsidies for power plants. Ohio public radio's Andy Challe reports the new law adds hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies for coal and while it does add twenty million dollars for existing solar farms it rolls rolls back renewable energy requirements and even scraps the energy efficiency program it also does out one hundred fifty million dollars in subsidies to keep open open to nuclear plants that had been scheduled to close opposition to the legislation formed some strange partnerships natural gas companies. The environmental advocates and conservative activists all fought on the same side against what they saw as unnecessary bail out for power plants. It's like this one. The kayaker creek coal plant which sits along the Ohio River workers were eager to talk about the critical cool role. It plays in the region. Chad Burton says for his family. It means everything. My grandfather actually worked here for thirty six years. You know it's put food on my table.

That's the impression that we are giving them but for Republican State Representative Bill Sites. The cost of continuing the green energy requirements especially the efficiency officiency mandates were too high sites argues that mandates like those are less effective than the subsidies he voted for. We have mandated in the past. The utilities must make their electricity with this particular kind of fuel. I think that's stupid. Sites Defense Coal as a measure to support grid diversity and reliability other supporters say saving nuclear would mean saving Ohio's largest source of non-carbon-emitting energy and some environmental advocates agree ratepayers will see reduce charges because of road back investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency but they'll see increase fees to support court those nuclear and coal subsidies the average monthly bill will end up dropping by about two dollars a month supporters of green energy policies call that shortsighted headed and a bad investment other states are deciding to put more money toward green energy and innovation but the debate in Ohio is not over yet.

I don't I think they didn't is because right after the slush was a heavy rain. So whatever they laid down might have just been washed away by the heavy rain that followed. Could have gotten the snowplows out and start piling.

He was really more of a musical charlatan to play before audiences. The don't seem to know. But love the orchestra. They see in the music. They hear whatever it is. And it all makes Jessica Cecchetto Heinemann question who we are sounds like Titanic is her memoir. She's been a professional violinist and is now a professor of creative writing at northern Kentucky university. Jessica Cecchetto Heidtmann joins us from just across the Ohio river at Cincinnati public radio. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks so much for having me. Let me get you. Explain this because I don't want to miss a note. So to speak. You were ended orchestra that played music on tour two thousand to two thousand six but the music you played was not but the audience heard. That's right. I am pretty good amateur highschool violinist. But when I performed for this orchestra the microphone in front of me was off an CD recording of a much more talented violinist was being blasted towards unsuspecting audiences sounds like Titanic because the music sounded like. Titanic theme from the film Titanic. Right. Yes. Absolutely. The nineteen ninety seven film BS. But it wasn't that music. He asks I think a few notes shy of whatever copyright infringement. That would be and you identify this person always is a composer. And I guarantee you have been all over the web trying to figure out who this is as I'm sure any reader would. Because this you guys performed a series of concerts for PBS over the years. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. So why why do you keep it as just the composer in this member? I it took me many years to write this book. And as I was writing, I realized that this was not an expose. It's not a work of investigative journalism. It's really meant to be a work of literature. And while I write a lot about the composer and music, and these performances all of that is is really scaffolding to launch bigger questions for me in terms of class and gender and geography on the college tuition crisis for. People my age. And so once I started realizing that the book was much bigger than one goofy guy and his goofy orchestra someone goofy job. I decided that you know, it really wasn't the point to out him. I hope that no one does. I'm you know, I understand if people want to, but it's my hope that the bigger themes of the book will shine through. Can I get you to talk about twelve and you certainly do in the book the emotional challenges that you living through at this time. Sure. So at some point during our toward the main toward the kind of composite a lot of the book and the book is called the God bless America tour I began to have panic attacks. And at first I thought that they were just stagefright, but they escalated to the point where they became debilitating. And after the tour I had chat move home with my parents for over six months, and there is a parallel between losing my grip on reality. What was real what's not real in the parallel between audiences who were not able to tell the difference between real music and fake music. And how even further I was felt like I was increasingly living in a society that was no longer able to tell real from fake. This was during the very beginning of the Iraq war the years immediately following nine eleven. The rise of reality television. It just seemed like that barrier was starting to break down. Are you trying to politicize your personal crisis? And therefore if I might say not really wrestling with it as a personal crisis. Well, I I think I do have to wrestle with it. As a personal case, I did have to wrestle with it. I had to just do what people do when they're kind of debilitated by panic attacks, which is figure out how to make them stop at least somewhat similar. I know you deal with it in a personal way.

What area it started started raining that pretty much was pretty much until I got. I'm a Louisville out here in Cincinnati. We were done with it. But there's just a kind of a misty sprinkle thing going on. That's keeping the roads damp. But haven't heard of any icing is just not cold enough. Because there's all of this rain is being pushed the northeast by a southwesterly airflow. So we're getting you know. Much milder than normal air for this time of the year gonna be with us for like another three or four days before things crash on Wednesday Thursday. But let me ask you this ask him all moms since the question. I posed at the outset of the hour. Do you get a fuel incentive now? No, I don't surcharge. I mean as a company driver, do you get an allowance of fuel? And if you live within the allowance over the course of the month. Do you get a little bonus? Or it's this is the fuel you get live with it. Yeah. Whatever we get. We we live with their Ron dedicated. We can pretty much fuel up wherever we feel like, and we and we do have the five minute idling and all the all the new little little little chicks. New little tricks of the trade and all that other stuff that they do the cut back on the on the on cut back on us on using feel. But in my case, I try I try to make sure I keep my fuel economy pretty good because with my run if it takes me roughly ten to eleven. Hours on a good day to do my run. And if something happens along the way, and I could not stop and get fuel. If I have at least half a tank, I can still run I could stomach my run the next day and still and still be able to deal without having to worry about stopping before before. I get down to my store and feel up and and Lou and lose time because because because because my my customer was one of these that if I thought the earlier I can get down there. The better. But to do that you might have to increase your your speed a little bit that would cut down on the fuel mileage. I'm just trying to find out if you as a truck driver think this part of your responsibility to keep down fuel costs for your company, and you're not really getting any incentive for it. Or do you think that the company will keep you employed? And maybe even you know at some point raise your pay or bonus you at some point towards the end if you keep your fuel cost out. Well, it might it might help a little bit in the long run. But it also, but it also to keep in.

"Of the causes of fighting the revolution. So that expansionist mentality was actually very cooked very deeply into the original ideas of the Republican nation at this nation was becoming even as it began. I mean, I guess maybe the initial founders of the state or the those who landed on Plymouth rock or not necessarily seeking to expand you know, seeking out resources to to ship across the ocean. But certainly the resources that followed were a function of that. And so in in some ways, I guess this sort of like this this imperialist drive was inherited in some fashion. Yeah. And again, that's very interesting. I mean, I I you're right of the book focuses its main action focuses in the first half of the seventeen ninety but in order to sort of bring that those impulses that I'm describing to life you have to look a little further back and in the in the book, I don't look all the way back to the immediate to the absolute origin of contact, and I white settlement. But I do look back to the formation of what was called the Ohio company Virginia by a bunch of junior speculators who were George Washington's older brothers and their and their friends and family connections. And you do see this. I mean, you know, some of its regional like Virginians were very interested in this and many Pennsylvanians were very interested in this. And it's not as if new Englanders weren't interested. But a lot of the impulse behind this kind of expansion seems to be the most successful, I should say, I guess come comes out of Virginia's and Pennsylvanians. So there were many many different sort of a. Contributing factors to original European settlement and appropriation of land on this continent. But one of those one of those threads, and it's the thread that led the reason it's important is it led very maybe a convoluted way I was gonna say very directly maybe in a convoluted way nonetheless in inexorably lead toward the formation of a military military nation state. Here comes out of this desire for speculation land speculation and land development, west of the Ohio west of I west of the alleghenies and then west of the Ohio river. Well, let's let's follow the money if we could. But before we do why why do you think Virginia and Pennsylvania? I mean, or is that if I asked the same questions. Well, that's a really good question.
