How Much of Our Food Do Moths Pollinate?
"Bees are not doing well. Since the mid two thousand colony collapse disorder has been taking out the world's most famous plant pollinator all over the world, these pont, one third of the plant's we eat from oranges, almonds a service worth some one hundred sixty eight billion dollars a year by the way, and their rapid disappearance is worrying farmers worldwide. But what if there a secret army of pollinators? Sneaking around the plants we rely on most it could be good news for food security, or it could be a neutral factor if these insects are susceptible to the same or similar pressures as BS. A study published in May of Twenty Twenty and the journal Biology letters has found moths playing much bigger part in pollinating plants than anybody imagined possibly visiting a bigger variety of plant species than bees, and doing it under the cover of darkness. Scientists didn't just realize overnight that moths pollinate plants. The problem was much of the research was limited to a few specific types of moths the. Spend a lot of time rooting around in flowers like hawk. Moths which have extraordinarily long tongues like fourteen inches thirty six centimeters long used for getting it hard to reach nectar reserves within a flower. However over the last decade investigations into how moths as a group contribute to the process of pollination found that your average moth tongue can be a effective tool for moving pollen from plant to plant. This knowledge led the study's authors to turn an eye to the rarely studied settling moths, which sit low and close to flowers and hide out in sheltered spots during the day. We spoke by email with these studies lead author Richard Walton of the University College London Department of Geography. He said our research has for the first time compared moth pollination networks with those of day flying pollinators such as bees hover flies to help us understand illustrate the wide ranging plant preferences. We discovered moths to have in an agricultural setting. We also found that malls were carrying most pollen from the flowers they visited on their furry bodies, which means the means of pollen transport from flower to flower by moths is very similar to bees, hover flies, which also transport most of the pollen on their bodies. Many social bees like bumblebees and honeybees visit lots of different types of flowers, but they also tend to target certain favourite plants that they know will provide plenty of their favorite kinds of pollen and nectar. As a result, some plant species get less attention than others. Walton said solitary bees often be more specialized visiting one type of plant while hover flies often visit flowers with a certain shape. We found that moths visit many different species of plant with a few different types of flower shape. If daytime pollinators do not visit a particular plant species often, but motte species do, and this results in pollination. This increases the chance that this plant would survive for another generation. So because malls are a bit less picky than daytime pollinators, but still get the pollination job done. Plants not preferred by bees persist, maintaining a diverse population of plants is essential to maintaining A. Resilient ecosystem that can weather threats like climate change organization. Conversely with plenty of plants to feed on moths, themselves can continue being an important food source for birds, bats and other insects. The research team observed and collected daytime pollinators as well as nocturnal moths around farm ponds the United. Kingdom and found moth food webs were often comparable to those of daytime pollinators in complexity, and in some instances had greater complexity. Walton said moths are likely providing a kind of resilience or backup to the food webs of daytime pollinators, if a certain species or number of species of bee or butterfly disappears from the landscape, moths potentially fill in that pollination gap. Taking this step further, it's also significant because moth populations are facing severe declines across the globe, as we realize that they're important contributors to the pollination process becomes even more important to protect moth populations because we might be placed ourselves at risk. The researchers found mauled were visiting plants belonging to families that are important to humans as a source of foods like apples, strawberries, pears, peaches, beans, and peas. Walton said this has exciting implications for mall. Being involved in crop pollination, it would help us to move past seeing moths as merely pests, but as important contributors to our own livelihoods.
Don't Try To Be Great
"In his book. Based on a commencement speech he gave at Dartmouth College in twenty eleven. Charles Wheel tells a story about how he was once a guest on a news program hosted by Chicago journalist Phil Ponts now the show is filmed live. So of course if you mess up or say something you regret there are no do overs. They're only hundreds of thousands of pairs of eyes watching. You do whatever it is you did or say whatever it is you said polished or not just before airtime Charles the writer recalls how. He was feeling right before. He said he was nervous. Self-conscious in hoping to impress in that very moment fill. The host leaned over with just thirty seconds to live and said these words. Charles never forgot. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and in it. Charles Leland writes this. That simple advice had a profound effect. Because I knew I could be solid. That was within my control. I could just talk about what I know. I could answer questions candidly. I could have a fun and interesting conversation with other guests. I might have some fun. Equips I might not. Phil's advice was liberating because it removed the pressure to deliver what I wasn't certain I could deliver and it made me better at doing what I knew I could again. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and don't try to be great. Is thing ten and a half like many of you? I've been thinking a lot about this class of twenty twenty both like I said the high school graduates college graduates to in addition to all of the end of year events. This graduating classes either missing out on her having to modify because of the pandemic the truth remains they're still graduating. They are moving into the world of grownups and the expectations in this world can be while extreme to say the very least. This world is filled with people who are trying to be great in the same way. I hope doing the next great thing is a kind of phrase for graduates to hold onto. I think Philpott he gave to Charles. Leland seems like a relief as well. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. It's not the message we usually hear after all the phrase is greatest of all time not solid est of all time or does that even mean to be solid years ago. I listened to an interview with author Philly Anderson who by the way is also a real life dear friend of ours here. North Carolina but in the interview Phil shared about his thirty year. Friendship with author and priest Brennan Manning in that interview Phil says this about Brennan Guy who's famous for what he has to say yet. What I remember most about him was how he sat and listened. He touched my life with his kindness. To fill. Brennan was solid. Another story comes to mind about Brennan himself one that he told his book souvenirs of solitude and it was about how years ago after a difficult phone call he had. He left his home. He was distracted and he had an appointment. That day. To give a talk to the inmates of Trenton State prison when he stood up there in front of the inmates he had been distracted. Like I said right before. He got up there so without stopping to think about his surroundings. His first words of greeting to the inmates were well. It's nice to see so many of you here when I read that statement. I tip my head back and laughed out loud all by myself mainly though I recognized how Brennan responded to his own words he wrote. I'm frequently not inform on top or in control. This is part of my poverty. As a human being and self acceptance without self concern simply expresses a reality he writes an impoverished spirit prevents the poor man from becoming a tyrant to himself. Brand was not anxious shocked or even much concerned about this misstep in front of the inmates. Instead he had a light heart about it if he had been trying to be great that day. This mistake would have crushed him instead. He showed up solid which meant there was room to make a mistake and to move on without crumbling. We try to great. We risk becoming a tyrant to ourselves when things don't go the way planned one final quote and then I'll be done Dallas. Willard writes about the misunderstood phrase that we find in the Bible about dying to self he says in this is a quote when we see people dominated by their lust for glory or insisting that there will be done we will be in a position where we can be very firm in not cooperating with them even if their loved ones when we live in the shepherd sufficiency and died to ourselves. We become the most firmly established people in the world. That quote is from his book. Life Without lack the most firmly established people in the world so class of twenty twenty. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. Be Solid in the way you live in your house until the next phase begins in the way you hang out with your family your choice to laugh instead of roll your eyes in the way you choose to listen to your younger siblings. Who will miss you more than they can possibly say. Or put into words be solid with how you enter into your next experience not like a tourist who watches from behind a camera lund's and insists all of your usual comforts are close at hand and not like an expert who thinks she's supposed to know everything as best you can enter into your new situation ready to be fully present and engaged when you can and free to withdraw when it's necessary be solid enough to be boring if you're trying to be great you might not notice the people and the margins your neighbors who are working twice as hard for half as much. If you're trying to be great you might be tempted to bend the truth to get ahead. So just be solid honest simple and you
You are But Dust, and to Dust you Shall Return
"As Western. Culture becomes more and more secular to use. Charles Taylor's fascinating were disenchanted traditions and practices. That were once largely normal. Now seem more and more strange. Large Families Choosing Church over little league. Foreheads these things just aren't as normal as they used to be and the second glances and raised eyebrows. They create reveal more than just a confusion about the thing itself. In fact I'm not sure. There's a Christian observance more directly in collision with the widely accepted values of secularism than the imposition of the ashes. A tradition that goes back about ten centuries and which marks the beginning of the season of lent on the Church. Calendar like advent. The season of lent is about preparation before Christmas are Christian forebears thought it wise to prepare a bit and by diving deeply into Old Testament promises and prophecies that we'd better understand the birth of Christ in the full context of redemptive history and so two in lent are Christian forebears. Thought it wise that we should prepare for holy week especially for celebrating to resurrection on Easter Sunday. Now key distinction is that lent and disciplines beginning with Ash Wednesdays reminder that you're but dust and to dust you shall return place our celebration of Resurrection in the context of our humanity both our mortality and our fallen nece even if the Church calendar and its accompanying disciplines is not part of your church tradition. Those two aspects of our humanity deserve our focused intentional and extended reflection of course most Christians would quickly reply of course in death affect us all post Eden. The problem is that in our secular culture these beliefs that are crucial to a Christian worldview can be subtly secularized in our own hearts and minds years ago when my grandfather was dying he suffered terribly for three or four months and saw. I asked my pastor. Why doesn't God just take him now? Expected him to say something along the lines of well you know God has his ways in his own timing but instead he said something. I'll never forget because your grandfather needs to know his mortality before he meets his maker. See what Ponts de Leon once sought in the waters of a fountain of Youth. We still seek today via genetic engineering eugenics or some other technology and other words we seek control over this world and even over death itself despite our search death remains the universal problem of our human condition. One that afflicts us all a secular cultures led by the reality of death feared death itself so that we either attempt to control death or distract ourselves from the thought of it. As a result we learn to live life in light of a moment rather than eternity the reality of death should instead remind us to fear God that after death we will meet the maker of life. That's something worth pondering. Not just at the moment of death but constantly throughout our lives the login Craig warned in his book the way of the modern world that many of us who believe in God lives if God were largely irrelevant to most of life the reminder of our mortality in the words you're but dust into dust you shall return. That's a wonderful antidote for what he called practical atheism just like with the idea of mortality. Our understanding ever own sinfulness is also under threat of being secularized in our own minds living in a culture committed in the name of freedom to removing categories. Like sin or guilt and one. Quick to give away nearly universal. Get Out of jail free cards in the name of sexual freedom to many Christians lose any appearance for that which ought to shock and shame us. Perhaps that's why the salvation. That's brought to us in Christ's life death and resurrection as so often described as a quote wonderful example of love and sacrifice or how to get purpose and perspective in your life but so rarely described the terms of judicial forgiveness and cosmic victory that Pau Peter Jesus himself so often used being confronted with her own sinfulness certainly no fun but God graciously does after all the cruelest thing. We can tell someone who's not okay. As that they are has both are secularized. Culture in our secularized churches too often do repentance is a gift. It's the only way forward for those on the edge of the moral abyss and it's proof that God is kind as scripture say. Unfortunately we just don't hear these things often enough so thank God for lent
The Chiefs Win the Super Bowl and the Niners Blow It, With Cousin Sal
"Did the chiefs witness or did the niners lose this. And if the answer is both what is your percentage split. Okay well it has to be both. It has to be both because it's no coincidence. That now mahomes five and in games that he's been down double digits so you got that but it's also no coincidence that Kyle Shanahan in his last fourth quarter Super Bowl drives that he's called. Yeah as gone three and fumble six and pont. I'm stealing this off the Internet him. Sorry for whoever did this foreign pont five point three and pont seven turnover downs to an interception. ooh though I wanNA say San Francisco some as a sixty forty San Francisco right there is that fair. Well you left out the part that in his last two fourth quarter overtimes. Where's the offensive coordinator for the Falcons Against Patriots? The other time outscored forty six to nothing. Yeah I look at it this way you know. I had the big bet for plus three seventy five before the playoffs on San Francisco. It's twenty ten. They get a pick. There's twelve minutes left. They have a phenomenal running game that ends up finishing the game running for seven yards a carry. Yep like twenty twenty one carries the one hundred forty plus yards. I felt like the game was over. And I know Mahomes is on the other side line and they've come back twice but they have literally literally the perfect team in the league to run out a game like that up ten with more with momentum with everything you want and the play action was working And they had really figured out a way to control the pace and when you look at those last three drives it felt like that she switches sending the house and and like screen passes. Were there just all kinds of things that were false starts in the manner side not running when they should have one Bad plays as and I. I don't I never liked to use the word choke with sports because these guys are much better than we are but they've really blew it. That is one of in one of the all time and we blew it super bowl losses. In my opinion I thought they right. They kept their foot off the gas and first of all it happened at the beginning. The end of the first half an in what happened with that time management there will chant ended. DidN'T WANNA use a timeout. Looked like he was just happy content to go in the locker room ten ten yet but then gets a first down like to the forty about right and then as timeouts and then the drives fizzles but who knows if you start that drive. What one one twenty seven instead of like thirty seven? It's a different story. So yes we hold that thought right but so it's a key moment for a couple reasons. One they don't call time out before the chiefs chiefs punt so another forty seconds runoff by the time they get it. There's a little under a minute. Left there on their twenty. I was watching it thinking. They're so afraid of the chiefs chiefs. They they don't even want to leave a scenario where mahomes might get the ball back with thirty seconds left to reverse but at the same time if you look at the way they played pretty much this entire Gabe it was really kinda playing not to lose you. Know they had feel goes over and over again and they had a lot of like third and five and third and four zero where they you know they technically. If you're really going for the jugglers down territory at least a couple times. They're always happy to settle settled for three. The fourth in two was pretty egregious in the second half just because I don't know that I never felt like they try to grab the game by its throat. And and you need points to beat the chiefs team but when you think about the first forty eight minutes of that game it could have gone better for them because they didn't try to grabbed game by the throat but they're still sitting there with the lead up ten with the ball with the running game. That's gashing the chiefs and I think it's a colossal. We blew it lost. Like even if you go back to the Seattle pats game where Where the Malcolm Butler pick Seattle was still making plays to win that game? You know the pats came down. I'm from ten same way but Seattle is still like throwing haymakers back. They got that huge pass on the on the crazy long ball down the field that set up the Lynch played. You know I I just felt like the niners really rolled over the last ten minutes. And that's before we get to the defensive side of thing. It was really rough. I kind of in disbelief. That they'd when Super Bowl. I know you're bummed but I'm thinking about this from the other way. I think like I think he'd wake up tomorrow. Morning more bummed if Jimmy G. drove his team down the field this guy you got a second round pick forward we added for and won that game. You would've won money but all the Jimmy Jeez better than Brady. What's Brady doing? Brady inserts himself. In commercials is yeah. The Patriots are pathetic. I think we would have heard that would have been the narrative if the forty niners at one that starts a you know either way. I think we're going to start talk about starting earning a dynasty and I feel like we'll get we'll talk about odds next year's odds men and I'm sure but Patrick Mahomes is starting that right when you have a quarterback that just comes comes back. It doesn't really matter what's going on. Seems to not get flustered at all. Yeah that's a scary scary team. But I wanNA give the chiefs a little credit their running game the the biggest Sucker bat was like the forty niners minus thirty three and a half yards. I think it was thirty. Six thirty three right in there over the Chiefs it ended up one forty one to one twenty nine San Francisco and that's misleading. Because Patrick Mahomes in one of the worst Super Bowl bad had beats I can remember had forty four yards before he kneeled down has over on the twenty nine and a half for loss. Fifteen yard three kneel. Downs ended up with twenty twenty nine. So they really did have more rushing yards and San Francisco and you never ever would've thought that and that that's why they won the game that and the third and fifteen play I thought in the fourth quarter. It was why they want. I WANNA go back later to all the things the niners did wrong. And you're right. We should praise the chiefs. They had an awesome come for behind victory. They think were what the fifth team to win a super bowl. Where at some point in the playoffs they were down ten? I remember seeing that that tweet somewhere hold on. Let me find that ten three times. Scott Scott Caz Mar he said Only four out of fifty three super bowl. Oh winners trailed by ten in the playoffs until tonight. Nineteen seventy six raiders. Down Eleven to New England. The Sugar Sugar Bear Ham at the game. The first horrible horrible football US ever had two thousand one patriots snow game. Some people got Tuck rule game called Snow Game. Two Thousand Fourteen Patriots Seattle Two thousand hasn't Sixteen Patriots Atlanta Down Nineteen the Patriots. Were somehow involved all four times. This happened until Nice until today. So now we're talking five out of fifty three where they've trailed by ten plus and the chiefs became the fifth team to do it. So there you go so I They deserve it. They're the best. I think they're the best right. Ravens got picked off bad job by them chiefs to the best

How to Start a Blog or Website
"First question that are you might ask yourself is that which platforms would you too so this is one of the question that you should ask yourself before you start your own website the first question of course so. I had a comment your platform. Let me tell you some states that I own own on the Internet so on the Internet. Although athletes that you see ir made fifty one thousand nine percent ninety six percent up the the vet said that you see on the Internet are created using place where it is open source cms software that use use that is used to create fifty one point nine six percent of the Internet's website so that's cool and next is Vicks we just seven point zero pipe percent than doom love open to one percent and squarespace three point nine six percent sand and there are also some completely accorded websites which are made on over st panel so that stupid open three six percent and then we three point one percent and then sites like Gordon Gordon decide etc which is one point six percent so you can see that are majority of the websites are over wordpress which is fifty one point nine six percent. Oh senso is huge and of course I'm to recommend you platform so obviously my suggestion is workplace. If you are starting a dynamic website which can do anything you want. I mean you can do whatever you want with all our website. If you buy a your own hosting so that's I would recommend this though platform that I would recommend what Bruce I'm not talking about what dot com I'm rocking World War Brisk Dot. Org which is called self hosted wordpress so you should open or start your website on self hosted wordpress art press platform so yeah. That's burt is still if you don't want to use wordpress and create if you want to create just a static website with few dynamic teachers are you're not simple website then our recommend whibley or dot com so you can use these these tools to create all with a side window and it will be easier to create the these websites but it won't be a very customizable it will be a static website and not completely static but you get the idea is it's not a super customizable so oh and not easy of course so you may not want to use this if you are trying to explore things and want to create bigger business to customize the website a lot so my recommendation will be workplace and even if you don't want to. Oh you is what praised you can use or start calm so let's move on so if you will if you use wordpress take recommend then you will need hosting to host your website so let's talk about all hosting so everything is basically flat that one where you back for more stories where you host or keep your website on the Internet so that they are a couple of platforms assumes that I would recommend you but let's let's talk about. two things reported okay what you should be looking king in your hosting in hosting company or hosting package or whatever so plus will you should look for apptime or who don't they should be great or. I'm inventor like Landon and poor nine percent and hundred percent hundred one hundred percent impossible or maybe sports but our state hosting the never gives you a hundred percent up time so that's that's an issue off said hosting plans I haven't I haven't tried dedicated hosting so I'll talk about it later but you should look for up aim is it it should be somewhere around ninety nine percent and of course if Dr and will be higher than the downtime. We'll below that means your site will be online for the most of the time so second thing that you should be taking this story a lot of our hosting sites. This are hosting companies. They'll that you get unlimited hosting but they are all lying. There are no unlimited story stories available and I taught blues is very honest and they will. They'll give you unlimited. It is terrific. Give actually but your side will pass them will not function properly when you reach the rich are certain point point reaches for PD beautifully made so they don't talk about it on their suspense was clearly they're lying and similarly. There are a lot of companies with who are retired are lying about their plan. They all say that you get on unlimited stories but none of them are giving you actually unlimited storage. Unlimited story is ally so you must take other stories you get I will. I won't recommend blue hose order anything any websites which still sued that you have access to unlimited storage because clearly they're lying and I don't want you recommend our company that lies and you may all also know that I I recommend bluest alert on my website myrtle soon. NBA replacing them with Oblivion Zine or cloud with hosting or something like that because they simply lies and I don't like how companies that lie so I'll remove them are and replaced with side grout groping Zine or cloud based hosting so oppose I'll be a good hosting. That doesn't life so yeah you SORTA look for a storage homages stories are getting Macaws. Almost Aubrey hosting companies are lying and saying that you get unlimited storage but you won't get it trust me and of of course there are companies which are which are clearly telling you how much storage you will get so I'll I'll talk about that in a moment and the targeting that will start in our hosting company is customer support so customers of old would be better and I think all the companies have good customer support. I never had any any sue with the customer. Support have tried to hosting side grow laws. Even blue host is good with customer support and then and then you all look for features like catching speed as certificated et cetera so these are the things that you should look for look in your hosting packages or hosting company and now Nick Men and it's Maya condition for web hosting so I would if if budget is not a problem for you than our Iro recommend you you plowed with hosting Dublin. WB engine or side Donosti aside garnished hosting is cheaper than the the other two options since but of course cheaper options you get to quality of posting so but it's I donate not Putin or the hosting company salutes great actually and I would highly recommend US recommend to use side grown even use. I'd grown and I also I'm also trying lorries always now and I haven't read Lupien but most of the Super Creator or super blog or for whatever you would like to say out of using WPA engine so that's one of the top Oh hosting for what I saw yeah but whatever opinion super expensive so you might you may not want to buy hosting if you have budget is so in depth case in that guess you should go to cloud ways and if your budget is still bulow then you can go to side drawn hosting but none of them are our T- posting by hosting all of them are great hosting so these are three web hosting Austin comedy that I would recommend you to use if whether it is not your problem but if you are loaned by then I will recommend you to use eight to hosting I've also used this hosting and this hosting is good at at the praised day offered it's not so so great but of course it's better than bluest or hostgator et. CETERA on the very phrasing and still their services are pretty good so you can if you're long visor. You can go go with worsening alright. So will you use of hosting company or website or to create a website. You'll also need our domain. We have already talked about how you should think about your state's name and similarly how you should buy your domain so you you want to listen to the previous episode to understand that. I'll not talk about that in this particular episode but Liquid Elliot how you can bite you can all you can buy it while buying the hosting for your website or you can buy it separately if you buy it separately then you will have to connect it with the DNA records so it's izzy she's just so if you'll just search on Google or I also have all video on my youtube channel you. If you want to do these things so it's easy to connect your domain your hosting so that's not a problem you will you'll be able to do it so I'll just talk about the platform that I would recommend if you want to buy domain separately not from the hosting companies so named Dot Com because of course aw like the name suggests you'll get the cheapest domains here name to his best player. Pont du by domain cheapest rate and the second option that I would recommend his Gore daddy most of the Indian stews Gordy because it accept payments are with Indian Indian Muslims Indian cards so that's one of the go-to option for Indians so either you can either you can. I I do you buy from your hosting company or you can buy from named deep or Gordie
"But increasingly read comment while ago posted about the sustainable futures report. The correspondent was concerned that i was trying into politics. The truth is everything is political while we can all do something toward solving the climate crisis. It is only governments and politicians who can make the changes of the magnitude that will make a difference. We are talking about system change after all. I know that many of you listening thing to the sustainable futures report are not in the u._k. I think that even you would have noticed that you k- politics are in some turmoil at the moment in fact this has been going on for three years but it's finally approaching day new mall.

"ponting" Discussed on KNST AM 790
"This. Chapman. That's right. Damn Donald Trump doesn't look only. With that racist garbage on dirty. That's right. That's right. They said this kid was Ponting was apparently an indigenous peoples March going on as well and Nathan Phillips he walked up to the student himself. But that was not the way they said, they got all the facts of the story wrong. They did know due diligence. Are they on the hook for libel? Yes. Or no. Well, there's no there's not a straight out from a fried libel. Slander has to be a statement of facts. Right. So it has to be Kombi opinion. It can be a characterization of the boys. Behavior economy, calling them racist. It has to be a statement of fact that in the case of these are not public figures. So the private figures, so you have to be negligent with that statement of fact, so basically, you have not done did you diligence and you'd have to sit something about them that you should have done was wrong. But didn't know what's wrong. So I am so saying that the kids are racist is. And not they didn't even they didn't even try Danielle? They didn't ask for video. They just ran with it. Nobody interviewed these kids ought to find out what it actually happened. Nobody saw the context of the moment that was negligent on their part. And as a result, they ruined the reputation and attempted to slip. They slander the reputation of these young kids or has it been maybe some liability. Does it there's another avenue that they pursued when the behavior it's really outrageous. And I think this close to what happened on Twitter with some of the people that were Duxing these children and their families the taught cold at the intentional infliction of emotional distress. And if you could show these these boys can show that there was some extreme and outrageous conduct which might be the doc saying that was inflicted upon them intentionally that caused them severe emotional Honduras. Some Kentucky law that might provide for them a means by which they may, you know, I remember. Gets damages and David by the way, I know you represented the National Democratic Party in the past, and, you know, represented them in a trial years ago when Ron Brown ran the party, and they got sued you actually won. But let me I see a lawsuit here, and I see all of those news organizations. They're all going to have to pay and all the celebrities are gonna have to pay. I think he's got a case for liable here. I'm just not sure that's the answer in this case. I'll tell you what troubles me the most you mentioned it earlier. And now you've sort of tidied Democratic Party, the tweet fight Representative Yulon, Omar is absolutely outrageous. She deleted it. But here's exactly what she said. She's a these boys, meaning the Covington voice yelled. It's not rape. If you enjoy it since the found out that the person who said the videos had no idea that anything to do with Covington. And she said to Covington boys were taunting five black men before they surrounded Phillips, racist chant. She's since. Deleted that she's nited states member of congress are the Democratic Party. She has the umbrella of the Democratic Party. I was very proud to represent the Democratic Party of the United States in the past. Very proud. And we want it trial, by the way. Let me stay on this point that we know that it wasn't the kid. We actually have the tape of of that rape comment. And it wasn't any of the Covington kids. That's not one of the Covington high school students. That's right. So remember also who these bracket Israelites are southern poverty Law Center has listed as a hate group. If you ever were to walk in Times Square and wear yarmulkes where they regularly performed just about every day this scream and threaten and intimidate you. You're not the real jus accept it goes on and on. And that's what they were doing with these high school kids, but think about this. We know now that Omar tweeted this comes on the heel of her other antisemitic tweets, we see Twaib with antisemitic tweets over and over and over again, my I never thought in my life. I would see the day that the Democratic Party of the United States opened its umbrella wide enough to not only include anti-semites about insi- semi but to honor them these people have been given now seats on very prestigious committees in congress. They are about anti-semites and invite us feel the Democratic Party. Has never wanted to be known in the past as being anti Israel. It's one thing not to stifle free speech. It's another to reward these people and not speak up when they say these horrible things people today because they saw the Omar tweets and other things are still saying that the reports originally were right? Some people still haven't you deleted their tweets a retracted them, and it was outraged by some quarters when the boy from. From Covington was given an interview on TV. We shouldn't even get to hear him speak. All right. We gotta take a quick break. We'll come back more within your mcglaughlin and David shown on the legality of all this then Jonathan Gillerman.

The frogs preferred big bre Melia ads, but the very largest bromellias were unoccupied by the frogs, which suggests there's a Goldilocks situation are the researchers think it has to do with the size of the frogs alligators shaped heads if the Bermudez water tank was too large and the frogs head can't form a tight seal around the opening which would make them and their offspring and easy meal. But if the pool was too small it might dry out completely. So they are really picky. Concerning day their houses, they need to clean house with fresh raw too. And it should not be large not small. The study is in the journal plus one so many says these findings remind us that we need to think about the nuanced habitat needs of species when it comes to conservation. It's not enough to bring some frogs and release them into the rainforest. We also need to ensure they're able to find the habitats they need to live may end raise their young.
