Most Intriguing Trade Deadline Teams with Bobby Marks

"To the low post podcast on a friday morning where we are six days away from the trade deadline but some trades of already happened. People are acting early. Miami acquired trevor ariza and the bucks made a very interesting move to acquire. Pj tucker but there's much left to do even on boring trade deadline's are never actually boring. Lots of stuff happens to help. Us preview are insider are cap expert former longtime nets executive. The one and only bobby marks how are you. I'm good zach. How're you. And i already had my usually about a week out from the trade. I start having nightmares in the middle of the night. And i did my first nightmare last night. That woke me up about four o'clock that A fictitional trade of paul george in kyle lowry to the nets for curry irving and i woke up thinking like how in the heck is at work cap wise but the person in my dream that i talked to said. Hey don't worry about it. Works and i was like check my phone right off. The bat at four thirty in that did not happen. That is that is really sad. I had a dream last night. That four of my friends in their families were quarantining at a former. I hop that still had all the i hop like syrup and technology to be a functioning and they were having lots of pancakes in great meals and i wanted to go visit them. This is what. I was dreaming about six days before the train then. I woke up very hungry. Bunny dream will probably more likely to happen than cholera. Paul george and brooklyn possibly. What did it before we start. What did you think of the bucks acquiring j. tucker in a deal of of minor draft assets. I would say yeah. I mean it was creative. I thought that you know the milwaukee because it hard cap and based on the picks going in that drew holiday trade really had limited options to go out and do it but they go under the milwaukee goes under the Luxury tax gives them flexibility on a hard cap houston from their front office with the draft. Picks i don't think it would have been able to do it if They didn't have that two thousand twenty second from the hardened trade. That was the box. Essentially that they got from jarrett for From cleveland jared allen. But i had never really seen a team basically swapping a first for a second and then tr trade back that two thousand twenty second and you move back a year in the draft so it was creative from from both sides. And you'll see what brand. Pj tucker we get in milwaukee because he has not been. He hasn't been great this year at all and is it just the level of interest of a houston team that has taken on major water. And do we get to see the pj tucker from the previous years. But it gives milwaukee a lot of different options as far as lineups that they can. They can roll out there with him.

The History Of The Cola Wars

"In the late eighteen eighties. Pharmacist named john doc. Pemberton decided to get rich selling homemade cures and elixirs. We should note in spite of his nickname. Doc wasn't a traditional doctor. He hadn't trained in mainstream medical practice instead advocating for alternative treatments and remedies and he wasn't alone in his passions late nineteenth century doctors and patients. We're wild about drugs. And even pharmacists could get rich quick selling inert or sometimes dangerous products as cure all remedies before pemberton's time even something as benign as ketchup was marketed. As a treatment for diarrhea jaundice and rheumatism bayer pharmaceuticals pedaled heroin as a cough suppressant and a safer alternative to morphine and literal snake. Oil salesman claimed that rattlesnakes fluids could cure their gullible customers. It's no wonder that. Pemberton figured he could brew his own dubious remedy in make a fortune. His first hit product was called. French wine coca. It contains several ingredients that would raise eyebrows today but they were considered healthy at the time. Things like wine and coca leaves which contain cocaine. Pemberton claimed that french wine coca was an energy drink and a remedy for morphine addiction and the people loved it. Unsurprisingly the beverage sold well but it wasn't long before pemberton ran into an obstacle just months after french. Wine coca hit. The shelves at the end of eighteen eighty five fulton county georgia outlawed alcohol atlanta based dot. Pemberton had a new problem realizing he probably never strike it big with his mental tonic. Pemberton went back to the drawing board. He wanted to replicate french wine. Coca success but with a non alcoholic beverage. Luckily he had a new product in. Mind it too featured coca leaves but he added the kola nut a west african fruit pit. That's high in caffeine. The mixture of coca and cola gave customers a mild buzz and inspired the drinks name. Coca-cola the beverage sold modestly in its first year unfortunately. Pemberton wasn't particularly skilled with marketing. and distribution. so shortly before his death he sold the business to a fellow druggist with more business. Sense acer candler from their candler built a beverage empire through soda fountains in the nineteenth century. Chola manufacturers generally sold syrup to local businesses. This was more efficient because soda. Bottling technology was fairly new and not widespread yet. They're carbonated water was added to the syrup. So the coke was fresh and fizzy when it was served. Gamblers forward thinking mindset. Didn't stop there. He knew he could reach more customers if he didn't limit his avenues of distribution so in eighteen eighty nine. He sold bottling rights to a plant in chattanooga tennessee. Now customers didn't need to visit the nearest soda fountain for a glass of coca cola. They could buy it the corner shop and drink it at home then. Candler made another even bigger shakeup. He altered the coca cola recipe. We don't know all the changes candler made to the recipe. But we know one of his goals. He didn't want to sell cocaine to his customers and he had two reasons why first candler was very religious second and more importantly he was racist. Most soda fountains were segregated. So only white people could drink coca cola on tap but once he started selling bottled coke. Southern newspapers began printing rumors of quote negro cocaine fiends. In quote white supremacists suggested that the soda drove people of color to commit violent crimes including sexual assault hypocritically. Nobody expressed any concern. That cocaine might drive a white people to commit crimes and to be realistic. There probably wasn't enough cocaine in the beverage to spur consumers to violence although it's hard to say because it doesn't seem like anyone was tracking how much they were using in the recipe. Regardless candler was committed to eliminating the coke from coke.

Aunt Jemima Has a New Name

"Oh what a difference. A year makes in the breakfast food. I'll at least and jemima brand of pancakes and serbs has a new name as we previously reported pepsico announced that it was overhauling the breakfast brands name and imagery which was under intense. Fire for being racially insensitive. The new brand will be called the pearl milling company. The products still look a lot like they always have. The company kept the packaging design with its signature bright red and mouth-watering images of pancakes drenched in butter and syrup but the image of a smiling black woman is gone and so is the name. The name is the original moniker of the missouri company that i developed the self rising pancake. Mix the company patented the product under the aunt. Jemima name you'll start seeing the new packaging on store shelves in june. You'll recall last summer. When the black lives matter movement shined a spotlight on inequality in brands were forced to do some self examination during that time. Many companies that were using racially insensitive or racist imagery vowed to make changes. During that time. Conagra brands switch manufacturers. The mrs butterworth's brand of syrups and pancake mixes issued a statement that it was undertaking. A complete brand review of its mrs butterworth's lines but unlike its competitor the company stopped short of saying it would drop the name and image critic said that the syrup bottle shaped like a matronly woman was also based on a racial stereotype. But there is no word yet on agra brands plans for mrs butterworth or the state of the review process.

The Power of the Praline

"Let's get to question let us for all liens are pralines or pauline's or lines. This is the first question what are they. Oh heck well a as it turns out the word of prowling can refer to a number of types of candies. What the word means in the american south is a soft fudgy type of carmel. Lumped with pieces of pecan and like a melt in your mouth super sweet rich buttery creamy confection with the contrasting crunch and complementary sweet buttery flavor cons so good. Oh my heck it's typically made by cooking a sugar with butter milk or cream or condensed milk. Maybe a little bit of annella and then at chapter have cons. An easter this constantly until it is a thick syrup softball stage for y'all candy makers and then you pour the the mass out onto a tray or a slab cool either in a single sheet to be broken into pieces later or in individual mounds sort of the the size and shape of a cookies when they're done they're dry the touch not sticky until they start to melt which they can like skin temperature You can get variations in there that include like rum for flavoring chocolate pralines peanut butter pralines chewier caramel praline. Pralines encased in hard chocolate sometimes called turtles cetera You can make them with other nuts too. I guess that is something. I've never seen but researching this episode. I have learned. That is definitely a thing. Yeah yeah okay. So in europe we run into some kind of serious linguistic confusion. Because in france from what i understand the word Prowling means whole almonds or other nuts that are cooked in boiling sugar then cooled so that it creates like granulated coding that keeps the almond inside fresh and i think it can also mean That confection crushed into a powder for use in like other candy making or baking. Or what have you here in the states we do call nuts that have been encased in a crunchy dairy sugar coating praline nuts and praline. Pecans are a holiday delicacy in the south. Yes meanwhile back in france. There's a related term of a means groundnuts or possibly praline knots cooked into a soft paste with sugar and chocolate and then coated in a hard chocolate. Shell like a like a bon. Bon yelm right. Meanwhile in belgium the word probably means any confection consisting of a hard chocolate shell encasing a softer filling one of the traditional fillings or perhaps traditional filling being prawning. Y'all it takes me like a really silly amount of time to suss all of this out i. It was like cross-referencing i. There was a lot of translating pages from french with google translate blake. I got very confused for a very hot minutes. Yeah that's one of the funny things about when you do grow up in an area and you don't realize something as regional venture outside of it and you're like wait you call leads. What and way for us. 'cause you just kind of assume the word means this turn out not necessarily yeah Yes so so. That's fun when you're googling it is it is it adds an extra layer of challenge of fun difficulty. A wrinkle an air history perhaps mystery what brolly are really great. Are we talking about well lauren. What about the nutrition. Well there. they're treat. It's you know it's sugar in nuts and fat it treats are nice. Tweets are great Not circling tristesse would imagine. I did find I guess this is a good transition into numbers portion. Because there aren't any numbers on pralines. But i did find one. That really cracked me up. And it was hyper specific to how many germans or eating pralines and how many were having more than one a day. And i just loved that this exists and is obviously not a well. Maybe not obviously but not the feeling we're talking about so i didn't include it but it was very funny to me that like only twenty percent of germans have proud leans more than once a day like a lot to me still. I'm just paraphrasing. Don't don't quote me on that but it was okay. Gave me a chuckle. that study did. Yeah yeah i Right right sussing out the numbers for for what. We are focusing on in this episode. Which is the american. South's version of that. Melty kind of fudge. Like pecan praline situation. Sussing that out from everything else was was was tough numbers size but i will say that at shops in new orleans that still make pralines by hand. I'm just i'm not gonna say consistently. I'm so sorry for anyone who is already being driven completely up the wall by this yeah shops new orleans. Still make them by hand out like for example Lays pralines a batch of two hundred takes about forty minutes to make start to finish and dedicated. Three person team can turn out a thousand a day. Whoa right hoof at the new orleans school of cooking. which does cooking demos and classes. They make thousands a day in overlapping batches and one cook who who mostly does candy making for them By the name of our ruffin told the la times. If i had to keep account on how many i make. I think i'd probably quit

Ranch vs. Blue Cheese

"I love blue cheese all everyday not even as a wing dipping sauce blue cheese dressing. I like blue cheese crumbles. I like it on a wedge salad on the side of you know. The stake have one time mistake and i made blue cheese pound butter. Wow what a wonderful yummy. Oh that does sound good bread. Yeah i love blue cheese. And i think it's verse it on. I think people just have a weird aversion to mold. You think blue cheeses versatile. I think it so versatile foods that i didn't necessarily well you kind of just named like wings salad and then stake but stake when really blue cheese. Would you blue cheese dressing on a stake. Blue cheese dressing rate is like the arguing. She's dipping sauce. We like dipping sauce dressing all blue cheese in general. I brought a list of blue cheeses. That i like. Well no but. I mean a lot of people like as a kid. I didn't know that blue cheese was a standalone cheese. Only had it in dressing for in. I'd only had like bad dressing. I think bad blue cheese dressing is much worse than what is bad. Blue cheese dressing wishbone. We're never getting wishbone. Wishbone wishbone boise. Addressing. there is no blue cheese in there. It's like a little bit of mold powder and then all parents love wishboned. Blue cheese dressing. That's why we grew up with it. He's like. America does corn syrup and chemicals america america french dressing. Wow i have nothing. I'd love wishbone. I love the shape of their bottles. Correct i think. Ken steakhouse highfalutin. That's the zinc legit jesse of all time. I can't bring myself to buy like fancy salad dressings. Because i'm either buying like a valley or like a wishbone equivalent or making my own spending. No seven forty. Nine for paul newman. Do you like making your own ranch. Yes is it as good as a bottled ranch. It's not as good as this. We we need to offer up a correction here for a previous episode. I don't even know what the heck we were talking about. We mentioned how good cisco ranches and we brought it specifically outback. Yeah mansion house. Oh no but i mean to me. That's a testament of. I love taking foods that are like really good prefab like stove. Top stuffing right like making my own homemade version of top stuffing and trying to make it taste exactly like that. And i love doing that like cisco ranch. But those don't no one's talking about cisco is the gigantic food distribution company that delivers like ten gallon drums What's the one cattlemen's cattlemans barbecue sauce. Brands that only exists that go through cisco and sell in ten gallon increments until like every crappy chain across. America uses the same barbecue sauce cisco small mom and pop restaurants long thoughts. Yeah they'll source of a lot of diners especially that have really big menus aren't so using very true. Isn't blue cheese dressing just ranch plus blue cheese okay. This comes to a very good point ranches. The mother sauce dressing is the variation on the mother. It's like you have holidays. Then you add shallots in tarragon and you get burn as you have ranch dressing. And the ad blue cheese crumbles in blue cheese dressing. Which is why. I think ranches superior s coffee rolling in his grave right now. The disrespect that you are giving towards his muscle. Tear down your french cooking idols. All right because the hidden valley corporation made so much more money so many more people in this coffee. You don't know that where your second. Though that i got a rifle actually hidden valley is worth a ton of money. They got top chef money. They sponsor entire seasons of top chef last chance kitchen which is also one of the most brilliant digital marketing devices last chance kitchen so top chef hidden valley would occasionally sponsor like a quickfire challenge on top chef. Literally be like yeah. Oh there's and they can get all wacky with it. Like reynolds wrap sponsored one one year and literally had to only cook using reynolds wrap as like equipment so people were like fashioning saute pans that have just reynolds wrap. Oh that's so fits on the up and they go on the show on top chef. Can i go yeah. I don't think i would win. But i would. Just a lot of people are like top chef. And i was like literally like the one of the first challenges. There is called a pre where it's like you have to perfectly breakdown or trust chickens. Yes technical stuff. That i have no idea i feel like i could go on. Chopped cut their kitchen. All the garbage food network shows. Top chef is an entirely different level. That i could not happen. Yeah yeah yeah.

What Went Wrong With Cyberpunk 2077?

"Sarah twenty. Seventy seven was twenty. Twenty s hottest. Game in shaping up to be a good enough launch when reviews for the pc version began trickling out a few days before december. Twelve release date but once players got their hands on syrup. Twenty seventy seven especially the. Ps four and xbox one versions excitement turned into frustration as players encountered bugs glitches in more in a report from bloomberg's jason schreier developers. That city project red knew the game was not ready for launch in two thousand twenty according developer quote. They expected the game to you. Ready in twenty twenty. Two based on the progress team was making back in two thousand nineteen beyond just bugs and glitches. Sarah sarah overall performance in playability on consoles like the base. Ps four and xbox one reviled. I gave the concert versions of cyberpunk twenty seventy seven specifically a four in its review. One hurdle was that the developers tried to develop the engine and game simultaneously decision. One developer cyberpunk says was like quote trying to drive a train while the tracks are being laid in front of you at the same time. According to bloomberg. Sarah punk twenty-seven versions not the version have been hammered by players for for glitches and bugs. Some bugs which are game raking and ended up crashing the entire game or sometimes the system is being played on and we'll put a pause there because also acknowledge the pc version does have its fisher. Bugs also but the conservation is definitely have way more issues in the pc version back to the article developers seemingly pushed through challenges by believing they could overcome these obstacles themselves. Similar to the infamous. By where magic but sarah punk twenty seventy seven was developed through periods of intense crunch and a follow up to follow a tweet shire claims that despite promises from management that crunch would not be required. Some managers guilty employees into working more hours by saying other employees will work longer to pick up the slack. Salaries were also reportedly low with one junior programmer. Making around seven hundred dollars a month as for why early previews of cyberpunk twenty seventy seven demo to the public at events like e. three twenty nineteen look better than the final product. That's because the demo was entirely fake. According to the report neither code nor the gameplay was finalized when the demo was made in months spent working on a fake demo took away from developing the full game schrafft's report also references things like cultural challenges caused by language barriers There's this whole double dip release strategy that the studio wanted to go for where The game officers meant to come out in spring The reason why one reason why they wanted to come out. Spring was so that they could release on current. I guess now last gen consoles and then released again on next gen consoles and have that double dip having both those console versions out obviously game got delayed and so that didn't happen happen. The exact way they wanted to even though we still have next inversions coming scheduled later this year and then another thing that stri- report references and the fact that the game was announced in two thousand twelve but apparently full development didn't start until late two thousand sixteen. Tim where do you stand with all this. I mean look at this point. where do i stand with. Like one of the most complicated. Just like there's so many different facets that go into this right like at the end of the day. I stand against the project red and how this all went down like we. How many times do we need to say like this game should not have been released the way that it was just period outing times. Do we need to say that. Like crunch is bad and we need to fix all this stuff. All this is to me. Is we being now in. Twenty twenty one firmly in twenty twenty one developers. Publishers media outlets. Everybody they need to open their eyes to start paying a little bit more attention. Because if you make these mistakes constantly you do not change. You do not fix. Despite the countless flags that have went up for the last decade specifically the last couple of years. Jason is gonna get you. Jason tries to get in there and exposed the living. Fuck out of you and your the entire team and that it hits a point where there is no recovering from that. So it's like that fear alone should probably motivate you to make some changes on top of the you know human decency side of the whole thing right but this is inevitable. Of course shire was going to get in there and of course he was going to talk to people and of course that's going to crap narrative that is extremely not favorable to cd project red. For good reason. They made a lot of very very very poor choices. Yeah now reading this report like a lot of it is not surprising just given the context of how everything's gone down right like seeing the the game delayed multiple times like from this bring into september from september and november and then from november into december. I think that paints a clear picture of okay. Yeah like we know. This thing isn't ready yet but we think we can get there. Okay no like. It's not ready but we we think we can get there with the next delay and that combined with the idea of okay. Yeah no we want to release twice so that we can double dip on consoles And them having to delay into basically the next generation was still have the current gen versions only available. I think that speaks to the fact that they they understood that they weren't ready And it's very much seems like a shit or get off the pot situation for them. All right yeah. We got to put this thing because if we don't like we're not gonna make the money on it and we can't keep people waiting we'll this game everybody be ready. I feel like those questions get asked overall. This feels like a tale of a studio thinking that because they put out a successful project that means that they can't have a fail and that is very evident that specific quote from Jason's article where he talks about. How like people were challenging the timeframe of sarah pumpkin whether or not they could get on time and somebody basically answered back. We'll figure it out along the way because he made the winter three and that is not an acceptable answer right like that shouldn't be cause for complacency. Because you put out incredible project. Five years ago i forget if i mentioned this in the actual article but like there was also the reference of how quickly the team grew after the witcher. Three like basically. The team doubled in size between the wichita. Three and cd project red and they didn't necessarily account for that. And so when you have a team that grows like that. And you don't your your company culture and your pipelines and your processes don't grow alongside that to allow for that For for that ease of growth. Then yeah you're gonna have issues like you can't you can't you can't operate like a big company but also still behave like the small indie company in that. Seems like a lot of what they're what they're doing. Which is unfortunate. Because that's result in sarah twenty seventy seven. Yeah absolutely you know the. I think most shocking thing to come from this are the implications. That three was fake. Like that to be something that i struggled to fully believe or fully. Get behind this on so much. Believe as budgets. Get behind that statement. Because it's like all demos or fake demos to some extent. And i feel like that's this to me is a perfect example of when it rains it pours and it's like when you make dire mistakes you're going to get called out and then you get exposed for every single thing To levels that you wouldn't necessarily be criticized and everything else right you know But anyways like yeah the the each. I definitely want to know more about of him implying. It's fake or not. We do have more context on that. Because adam consider not consistent adam oh no it. Is adam barsky. Yeah from cd project. Red actually responded on twitter. Quote tweeted jason with a whole response. I'm gonna pull from adam. Bankers with adam. Bankers did a good write up on it. From aegean the response goes like this. Adebayo adebayo the steam ahead of cd project. Red has responded to a recent report regarding cyberpunk twenty seventy seven alleged fake three demo and development issues while it's hard for a trade show game demo not to be a test of vision or vertical slice two years before the game ships. But that doesn't mean it's fake but ask you wrote. Compare the demo with the game. Look at the at the other side. They're dum dum dum dum. I'm not sure how that's pronounced. But look at the dumdum seen or the car chase or the many other things with the people reading your article may not know is that games are not made in a linear fashion and start looking like the final product. Only a few months after launch or a few months before launched if you look at that demo now is different. Yes but that's what the work in progress watermark is for. Our final game looks implies way better than than what the demo ever was as for missing features that's part of the creation process features features. Come and go as we see if they worker not also car bush's exist in the final game almost verbatim to what we showed in the in the demo.

The Most Common CRO Blind Spots

"Someone approaches conversion rate optimization their first instinct is to do what the first instinct to syrup off everyone else. Okay see things that they think work. They think everyone else's smarter than them and so they take these ideas. No doubt looks interesting. They hear about a blogger. Doing something like oh. That's interesting and then or this this worked for this other store our competitor and they they take that and they run with it and it doesn't work for them and they're like line and this work well. There are a lot of reasons why it might not have worked. Main thing is that you didn't think about what really worked for you right. You didn't go back to first principles and think about the customers. That are coming into your store. I think it's a huge problem. So you it's it's shiny toy syndrome. It's the grass is always greener. So i go outside. And i see. Oh well this across the street. This other store has this way cooler side than me. And i perceive them as being more successful reality i have no idea what their businesses like it all but i just perceive them as being more successful for whatever reason and i say all right well then i just attribute that to whatever thing i notice unlike yeah and thus we have some shiny toy syndrome action happening and i think that is where people get in trouble yeah. I think that's right like what ends up happening. I had this conversation with a client a few months ago where they were like our biggest competitor is doing this. We should do this. I'm like well. How do you know that they're doing it right. And they were just like just like shocked. And what do you think they're conversations were internally that led them to this decision and then the response to that was they. Didn't yeah exactly right. What you don't realize is that everyone is a group of smart people on a zoom call trying to figure it out in the dark like everyone else. Yes we're all in a cave with a candle and maybe there's eight people with candles. They might do slightly better but we still. It's such a young industry and it evolves so quickly that i literally. I don't think anybody knows what they're doing. No one knows what they're doing right. What i'm doing to go back to as we're firestone at a series. I think he's still has a series. This is called now right. And that's wildly popular because it gives you clarity and safety and a sense of strategy for cheap right like you can. Just go and look at this without works okay. Great and a lot of it actually does work because the problem with conversion rate optimization is that in many ways it's like getting to just basic first principles getting some best practices in place getting something that's familiar for customers and that makes sense to people right but then when it comes to doing something that's more like custom tailored to the specific needs of your customers. Everybody just like. I do what they don't know what to do with it. And that's where i come in So what should people be doing instead. So we've established that like the shiny toy syndrome. The grass is always greener. that is problematic. And you're just kind of when you're doing that you are. You're blindly throwing stuff against the wall which there could be. You're gonna get success some of the time but we need a. We need a framework. We need a better approach here. So how should i be approaching it and then we'll get into the most common pitfalls or missed opportunities. Yeah i'll tell of an anecdote that i like to tell my clients especially when they first come in the door if you ran a physical store right assuming those still exist. I don't even know but if you ran a physical store people come in right and there's some about a foot traffic and you. The owner of that store are behind the counter. And you can observe right or you can talk to them. And so the problem is twofold number one. You can't. you aren't observing them and the second is that you can't talk to them necessarily can be like hey. Do you have any questions. And what happens in that. Process of observation conversation in a physical store is that you understand the customer's needs a little bit. Better you may not close the first few sales but eventually understand. Oh people are coming in for this. I should be making a couple changes to the store. Changing the way that i'm marketing myself or putting the this stuff over here or whatever it is right and so there's something that's observable that you can see right now. How do you take that process and apply to e commerce. Well i think that you can actually look at what customers are doing and ask them. What motivates them. I don't think that's difficult the problem that when you're stuck behind a computer all day and your as nerdy as i am you. It's not your default to go out and talk to customers. It's not your default to go out and observe what customers are doing. And when you try to do that you're stuck in an application like google analytics which is bad so the process of understanding what customers say and what customers do is a little bit more slippery and difficult but no less essential right. So how do you go about doing that. Well a lot of the tech industry has figured this out and it's using a lot of unsexy terms like research analytics and data right. I like these things. I'm getting excited. I like these things. Because that's why i get up in the morning i get up to research customers right and you may not. You may be if you're listening to this in your store owner. You're probably waking up to ship product to customers grow. The store grow the business. You might be thinking about stuff. If if i'm lucky and you're my client and i think that for me like the fundamental answer is that you need to go out and understand what your customers are doing. And you need to be a little bit more proactive about it. And it doesn't come naturally in retail as an industry right because normally the people come to you and you can just look at them and that's the research. The research already just happened because people were shopping with you and you understood what made them really light up and buy your stuff and you got that feedback on a daily basis but really all you're getting feedback as people complaining about that where their order is and occasionally anecdotes from your friends about the products. That's like your research process. And maybe if you're lucky you go in and look at g. nathan. Conversion rate is bad today. That's it but nick. I'm my best customer. I know what they want. I don't don don don right. I know what i want in my world view has quickly been wildly warped by being so close to everything. Yes the business owner. Yeah exactly like you are. Actually it gives me no pleasure to report that you are maybe the worst example of a customer. The storm okay. You're yeah and once we accept when you're starting out and you have no customers like you don't have a choice but like at some point you have to move beyond that and then that's where you start you need to start figuring out your customer and you're right online. It is so impersonal divorce that it gets strange. And so you need to go through and do the customer research talked to your customers on the phone. Oh my gosh. Pick up the phone call and try and uncover okay. How do they see themselves. Why do they buy and then also do it at a larger scale through customer surveys and what they have heard you say that i love and because i have found exactly the same thing to be true. Is you do a customer survey and often you could find that like that one magic phrase that suddenly becomes the headline on the website. And that's the thing that really increases conversion rate

Why Would the Creator of Graham Crackers Be Horrified by Them Today?

"Harebrained steph. Lauren vogel bomb. Let's face it. One of the best things about making a campfire is making s'mores. The quintessentially american treat consisting of a toasted gooey marshmallow and a square of melted chocolate pressed between two crisp graham crackers. But have you ever wondered where graham crackers came from or where they got their name. The original graham cracker was a health food developed in the eighteen thirties. From the teachings of an american food reformer and religious teacher named sylvester. Graham who by all accounts would be appalled by what's called a graham cracker today which is typically made with refined flour high fructose corn syrup ended up dab of honey for marketing purposes instead graham's original cracker called for just wheat and gram flour a form of whole wheat flour made by grinding the endo sperm winter wheat into a fine powder and mixing it with the brand and wheat jerem it has of course texture and nutty flavor the resulting cracker contained no sugar fat and often had to be softened by soaking or boiling before eating. We spoke with new york-based food historian. Sarah weisberg johnson. She said it's funny. That of all the things that he talks about with his health reform. That's the one thing that gets widely adopted and has his name. Graham flour gets adopted by people who may not even be aware of him even towards the end of the nineteenth century and persists into some of the twentieth century. You hear about graham gems and gram bread. Cookbooks up to the nineteen forties and fifties graham. Who was not a doctor. Although he sometimes went by dr graham was horrified by the over processing and enriching of wheat flour and believed that the loss of fiber and other nutrients and white flour ruined consumer health in eighteen.

Myths about Sulfites and Wine Busted

"Drinking red wine gives you a headache. You've probably had someone tell you. That sulfites are the likely culprit. And perhaps you've been advised to stick to white wine or organic wines or wines made in europe on the grounds that these are going to be lower in sulphites today. We're going to clear up some of the most common myths and misunderstandings about wine sulphites and headaches. I just a little background. Sofer dioxide is a chemical compound made up of sulfur and when it occurs naturally in some foods but it can also be produced a laboratory sulfite is used to preserve foods and beverages which it does by acting as an antioxidant and anti microbial antibacterial agent. They're commonly used to preserve the color and the texture of dried fruits. South has also been used in winemaking for thousands of years. Ever since the ancient romans discovered that it would keep their wine from turning into vinegar to this day winemakers use sulfur dioxide or sulphites to preserve the flavor and the freshness of wine. Now sulphites don't cause problems for the vast majority of people but about one in every hundred people is sensitive or allergic to them and if you have asthma your chances of self sensitivity are quite a bit higher about one in ten. The most common reaction to sulfites is something similar to an asthma attack. Well actually the most common reaction to sell his no reaction at all but for those who are sensitive to them. Consuming sulphites can cause breathing difficulties and less commonly hives or other allergy type symptoms. These reactions can range from so mild you might not even notice them to quite severe however headaches are not one of the symptoms associated with sulfide sensitivity. Now people who are sensitive to sulfites are well advised to steer clear of wine because it does contain sulfites but there are a ton of misunderstandings and myths about sulfites in wine. So let's see if we can clear some of these up myth number one. Is that organic or biodynamic wines are sulfite free. Almost all vintners add sulfites to wine to control. Bacteria grow in the us winds that are certified. Organic must not contain any added sulfites however sulphites are produced naturally during the fermentation process as a by product of yeast metabolism. In fact all wines contain sulfites. There's really no such thing as sulfite free wine. But the amount of sulphites can vary significantly by law winds that contain more than ten parts per million sulfite must be labeled with the words contains sulfites and there are also upper limits to how much sulfide wine can contain but the regulations vary by region in the european union. Wine can contain up to two hundred and ten parts per million sulfites in the us. The upper limit is three hundred and fifty parts per million even though no sulfites are added to organic wine. Organic wine can still contain between ten and forty parts per million sulphites. You may also see winds labeled as being made from organic grapes which is not the same thing as organic wine wine. Made from organic. Grapes may contain up to a hundred parts per million sulphites. And here's a quick tip for you if you do get a hold of some wine that is made without added sulfites. I don't suggest keeping it in the cellar for very long. Why made without sulphites especially white wine is much more prone to oxidation and spoilage and that leads us to myth number two. Which is that. Red wine is higher in sulphites from white wine. Ironically the opposite is likely to be true wines. Tend to be higher in tannin's than white wines tannin's are polyphenols that are found in the skins seeds. And the stems of the grapes and they also act as antioxidants preservatives. So less sulfite is needed when they are incorporated into the wine. In fact while those european regulations allow up to two hundred and ten parts per million sulfites in white wine the limit for red wine is only one hundred sixty parts per million other factors that affect. How much fight is needed are the residual sugar in the wine and the acidity of the wine so drier wines with more acid will tend to be lower in sulphites sweet wines and dessert wines on the other hand tend to be quite high in sulphites. So let's now tackle myth number three. Which is that sulfites in wine. Cause headaches the so called red wine headache is definitely a real thing. But it's probably not due to sulfites for one thing. White wine is higher and sulfites than red wine but less likely to cause a headache while something in red wine does seem to cause headaches and certain people it's probably not the sulphites because if it were white wine would be just as bad or worse and that suggests that it's probably something else in red wine. That's responsible for that. Notorious red wine headache and other likely candidates include history. Means tire mean tannin's not to mention the alcohol itself and in the transcript of today's show which is at quick and dirty tips dot com. I've got links to some episodes that have done in the past on histamine intolerance as well as foods and food components that can contribute to headaches and our final myth number four is that european winds are lower in sulfites than us produced wines wines sold in the us and australia carry warnings about sulphites and up until recently winds it sold in europe did not and that led many consumers to conclude that european winds are made without sulphites in fact european winds on average have the same sulfite levels as american wine. This was just a difference. In the labeling regulations in both europe and america the average glass of wine contains about ten milligrams of sulphites. That's about the same as in a handful of dried apricots. And here's an interesting piece of trivia your own cells produce about one hundred times that much just in the course of their normal metabolic activities even if you have a sulfite sensitivity however the sulphites produced in your own cells will not trigger a but if you are to sulfites. You're also gonna wanna steer clear of candy prepared soups frozen juices. Processed meats potato chips french fries and dried fruit all of which contain a much higher concentration of sulphites than wine and of. You're very very sensitive. You might also need to avoid foods like shrimp maple syrup and mushrooms which have only moderate amounts of sulphites new regulations have made it a little bit easier to avoid sulfites in foods. For example restaurants used to treat the raw vegetables in salad bars with sulfites to keep them looking fresh. And there'd be nothing to warn sulfite sensitive diners and you know servers. If asked were not always reliable sources of information but now restaurants and grocery stores can no longer add sulfites to fresh foods packaged foods that contain sulfites above a certain low threshold must include that information on the label. However if you don't have sensitivity there doesn't seem to be much reason to worry about sulfites in foods or wines. According to the fda sulphites are not. Teratogenic mutagenic or carcinogenic. And that means they don't cause cancer or birth defects if you're not allergic or sensitive to them. They're unlikely to do you any harm. So you like your dried apricots soft and orange instead of stiffen brown. You can go for it and if you get a headache after drinking red wine don't go blaming those sulphites

From throat singing carols to Nerf gun hunting: How Indigenous people are celebrating the holidays

"I don't know about you but my family loves this time of year for us. It's really all about the food we gather at my grandma's house on six nations for a potluck style christmas eve dinner and every year. We have seafood. Uncle dave brings salmon drenched in maple syrup. My dad make seafood chowder. My cousin allen brings oysters and whoever is holding the venison pepperoni from this past years. Hunt fingers crossed brings a lot because it disappears quickly. We drink way too much. T eat way too much food and make way too much fun of each other. That is our tradition. And i'm going to miss it this year. I guess we'll just have to share a cup of tea and make fun of each other over zoom while aida shrimping alone today on the show how indigenous folks are celebrating family traditions and making meaningful connections in all kinds of innovative ways off the wall verse. They got off three walls. That's the sound of a carnival at women kong nursing home staff at the long term care facility in Mccown first nations are finding creative ways to lift the spirits of its elders. During the coronavirus pandemic the nursing home recently went viral online after posting photos of residents deer hunting with nerf guns. Cbs's gonna see. Oh dear is here to tell us more about the creative ways. The staff is keeping spirits up during these challenging times. Welcome to the show going to see you. Thanks for having me okay. So my first question is nerf guns. Yes so each week staff Akon nursing homes drives have a full calendar activities for its residents were primarily first nations for manitou island. One of those recent activities was deer hunting but not actual deer hunting stops. Set up a mini forest of christmas trees dressed up endear costumes and gave the residents some nerf guns photos as you can imagine went viral on facebook so they come up with this idea. One of the residents that he was experiencing hunting fever so the staff wanted to come up with a solution. Emily barnes is the recreation manager at the nursing home here. She is explaining more about the approach. She takes when organizing activities. Anything how much. He missed actually being avid hunter. Every year and how this time of year is kind of hard because he felt like he was truly missing out on something important. I am although the person centered approach and we cater to the individual interests of our residents The community that we come from hunting providing for their families is such an important part of life. So we try to incorporate everything that was meaningful before they came here. So i wrapped my brain and the nice lurking in the middle of the night. I thought we're going to be decorating for christmas shortly. So we own about ten christmas trees. And i thought why not set them up so i So i headed into down. And i went and i found some of the your hat on and so what kinds of activities. What other kinds of activities have they done in the last few weeks emily. Inner team have held photo shoots for residents. They had a lip sync battle and carnival. Fast food chain. Tim hortons opened on manitou island in october. The elders were able to join in the festivities too with the drive through cart serving coffee and donuts import for elders. To be a part of it. 'cause you when you think like what are your grandparents do in the afternoon a lot of them. They drink coffee. They go to tim. Horton's they meet up with their friends. And so i didn't want to miss out on this important milestone. That happened on our island. You sign sweet. We teamed up with tim. Horton and I was very fortunate. My husband's a carpenter. So he was able to make us the structure a Yeah we're able to still have them have their cup of coffee and be a part of the community celebration though. We didn't have to miss out. So what impact has this approach to recreation head on the residence in the nursing homes administrator cheryl was aiba win peltier said these activities have been so important because of the increased measures and restrictions currently in place because of the coronavirus pandemic and residents aren't the only ones enjoying it. Photos and videos of every activity or shared on social media cheryl says that these activities received tons of feedback from people across canada and the united states some joining in with their own deer hunting activities. The biggest thing i take away is other. Residents are enjoying activity we actually shared from. I think it was a home in Ohio they actually posted a video and they did the activity further residents there and i thought wow like homes are enjoying that activity and do they look like they're joining it just as much as our residents were residents have definitely noticed the attention. Their home has been receiving to this was one of the priceless reactions to the viral deer hunting activity and today. I actually just saw an elders large and aquasnap post photos of their own nerf gun hunting activity too

"Do that so just just as a reminder to the listeners. The good back at the good fiber that's in the con is the type that resists digestion in the in our small intestine so it doesn't break down into sugars but then it goes on through the intestine into the large intestine where it becomes food for the good bacteria are probiotics and then when the probiotics feed on that it breaks down into short chain fatty acids which then are very helpful for slowing blood sugar levels and lead to weight loss and they also believe that uconn has the ability to Increase a particular are actually lower. A particular type of hunger hormone called ghrelin which will help reduce appetite as well so it has two different kinds of things going on with it. Yeah and so. There's there's really been only one really good study that have been done with the effect of your sir upon weight loss. But it's actually a really good one and with some very promising results so the study was double blind. Placebo controlled clinical trial There were fifty five participants. They were obese. Women who had cholesterol problems being high cholesterol and a history of constipation so these women were split into two groups. A total of forty women took yukon syrup about one to two teaspoons day while fifteen women took another type of syrup that didn't have any active ingredient in it so that was kind of like the placebo group. All of them were advised to eat a low fat diet and mildly restrict calories in the study went on for about four months and at the end of the study. The women in the con- syrup group had lost thirty three pounds on average and at the same time. The placebo group gained an average of three and a half pounds. My right and the study also found reductions in waist circumference which was a really big deal and obesity and then The con syrup group lost three point nine inches off of their waste and no significant change was seen in the placebo group so someone can use it as a sweetener in their coffee in the morning..

Do Artificial Sweeteners Cause Heart Disease?

"There i'm monica rhino. And you are. Listening to the nutrition diva podcast. Welcome this week. We're talking about the latest study to throw shade on artificial sweeteners. A study published last month in the journal of the american college of cardiology found. That soda drinkers have a higher risk of heart disease than those who do not drink sweetened beverages now the association between sugar consumption and heart disease risk is not new as a person's sugar intake increases so does their risk of cardiovascular disease and this association by the way is seen regardless of the age the body weight or the exercise habits of the person even among those with otherwise healthy diets. Lots of fruits and vegetables lean meat whole grains and that sort of thing heart disease risk increases with added sugar intake. The more surprising thing about this study however was that those who drank a lot of sweden soda had the same elevated risk as people who drank a lot of sugar sweetened soda. The risk of heart disease was about one third higher among those who were high consumers of either type of soda compared to low consumers that means if ten out of one hundred low consumers developed heart disease than thirteen out of one hundred high consumer would. So let's talk a little bit about how sugar can hurt your health. Those who consume more added. Sugars are more likely to be overweight. And that certainly contributes to heart disease risk. But even when you're not overweight a diet high in sugar can raise your triglycerides levels. That's the amount of fat that is circulating in your bloodstream. It may also lead to fatty deposits in the liver and these could be some of the mechanisms that would explain the link between sugar intake and heart disease risk but none of that explains how artificial sweeteners might increase cardiovascular risk. And that's the real mystery here. There's no obvious mechanism to explain how artificial sweeteners might hurt. Your heart and this is not the first mystery regarding zero calorie sweeteners. Despite being low in sugar and calories artificial sweetener us has been linked with increasing rates of diabetes and obesity. Now early on theories were proposed to try to explain this. Maybe we thought the sweet taste somehow tricks the body into responding as if it is actually sugar or perhaps artificial sweeteners. Increase our appetite or make us crave sugar research designed to test. Those theories has so far. Come up empty handed. Well not completely empty handed but as is so often. The case research in humans fails to bear out preliminary findings in lab rats. The best theory. We have at the moment to explain. This apparent paradox is that the artificial sweeteners might change the makeup of our gut. Microbiome in ways that promote weight gain or diabetes and unlike the other hypotheses there is some human research to support this and perhaps something similar is underlying this latest finding regarding heart disease. But i think the larger point here is that the data consistently contradict the notion that artificial sweeteners are somehow healthier or perhaps less unhealthy than sugar. Both are fine in moderation of course but high consumption of either one. Either sugar or artificial sweeteners is linked to poorer health outcomes. The keyword here of course is linked as the artificial sweetener industry would very much like to remind everyone correlation is not causation and most of the data that we have on this question our observational. They come from big epidemiological studies that look at dietary patterns and health outcomes over long stretches of time and that sort of steady cannot prove that artificial sweeteners cause any of those health problems but they do often seem to be nearby when these problems occur so should we quit drinking soda. Do we need to change what we're doing based on this latest research. I think that really depends on what you're doing if you occasionally have a diet soda. I don't think you have anything to worry about for that matter if you occasionally have a regular soda. I don't think that's cause for alarm either. But if you're drinking soda whether regular or diet on a daily basis that might be more of a concern aside from whatever affects the sugar or the artificial. Sweeteners are having on your body. Sweetened foods and beverages whether they're sweetened with sugar or with artificial sweeteners. Don't contribute much nutrition to your diet and they may easily crowd more nutritious foods out of your diet. The point is that reaching pry diet soda instead of a regular soda doesn't really constitute a nutritional upgrade if you really want a healthier alternative choose water or sparkling water and by the same token if you're looking for a healthier sweet treat a piece of fresh or dried fruit is going to be a choice than an artificially sweetened brownie or ice cream. My advice is to exercise the same degree of moderation with sweeteners. As you would with added sugars now as you recall the guidelines for added sugars are to limit them to about twenty five grams per day. And remember we don't count the naturally occurring sugars in fruit or dairy products towards that total. But we do include honey molasses maple syrup and other so-called natural sweeteners. So what does that translate to in terms of artificial sweeteners. The equivalent of twenty five grams per day in a non caloric sweetener would be about three packets or one diet soda per day

"syrup" Discussed on The Ladies of Strange

"It was pretty serious. Business in total. Nearly five hundred. Forty thousand gallons of syrup had been stolen that was twelve point five percent of the total reserve at two thousand dollars per barrel. It is about thirteen or in two thousand twelve. It was about thirteen times. The price of a barrel of crude oil palsy. Schweitzer should we invest in maple syrup gel. Let's move to canada. Anyone wanna take a guess at the value. The amount to the dollar amount that they tabulated was stolen. Three million i was thinking like five mil- eighteen point seven million dollars and canadian. Money's yes what is augean money called. It's something cute loon. Yeah that is cute in their money is waterproof. What's it's pretty brilliant. Well it snows a lot there. Dude canadians they out it. I can't remember if it's a lunar loonier a colloquial term for it it. I've heard looney. But and i'm not sure if that applies to the coins or the dollar bills claimer canadian. It's cute disclaimer. Non-canadian almost as far away. Oh we have a comedian and at work. I'm gonna talk to her. it's fine. I'll ask her about baker work. Sound incredibly weird which is accurate. Yeah she has one who suggested the niagara fall- barrel anyway we did touch base Maple syrup ridiculous amounts lots of money. Eighteen point seven million dollars. It became known as the great maple syrup heist said to be. Among the biggest agricultural crimes ever committed so it was believed to be an inside job not necessarily members of the fda q. or manufacturer but a tenant who to be renting space in the same facility. I'm trying to imagine. Lake offloading that much maple syrup and like how long you would have had to been doing it for it to not be noticed or you just like they took a weekend offer a holiday and you and your buddies would in there just demolished. A bunch of i don't own so the reason i thought it would be somebody within the same facilities that they would have access they'd have the keys they wouldn't be questioned by security to be on the property for some reason they had to have access to be on there but they didn't think it'd be anyone from the f. a. q. or manufacturer because if you mess with supply and demand they change how much they're willing to pay you and so lose traceability. It's a mask yet. So they really wrote off most people that'd be involved with f. b. q. In any way so several conspirators pursued including avic carson and richard villares working with a handful of others Some with knowledge of the trade. They apparently went after the bounty over the course of a year. According to the prosecutors the gang would truck barrels out of their reserve to a sugar shack where they would siphon the syrup into their own barrels and then refill the originals with water. And take those back in. It's basically they would act like delivery people and they would take barrels and remove full barrels bring quote unquote full barrels. But they were filled with water. Anyone else craving pancakes right now. You should have seen me researching this episode. I was very hungry. And i won't real maple syrup. So as the operation grew they allegedly brought on accomplices began siphoning the syrup directly from the barrels in the reserve and nearly ten thousand barrels of syrup were stolen and truck two points from south east. It said we're the market was free. So i guess maybe that's not controlled by the fbi. Cue which is how they were able to sell it. Okay i was thinking black market but plaque maple syrup..

Canned Foods that CAN Work for Baby-Led Weaning

Canned Foods that CAN Work for Baby-Led Weaning

"My general rule of thumb just to give you like the quick and dirty. I love to see less than one hundred milligrams of sodium per serving food that. I'm serving my baby now. That is not published official guidance because there is none of that for babies less than one so we have to kind of us like best practices. Which is yeah you want to minimize sodium. Most of the foods roughing baby are fresh. Wholesome foods that are not pro process. That are not coming from gans so if you occasionally do feed processed food try to keep it on the lower side of sodium less than a hundred milligrams is like a good benchmark also knowing that the nutrition facts panel is going to reflect serving sizes that are appropriate for adults. And i don't care like how into eating baby is they're not gonna eat a half a cup of garbanzo beans so they're actually eating less than the amount of sodium posted in the label but good rule of thumb less than one hundred milligrams per serving now when you go to pick canned goods. This is like the easiest place to get super good at reading labels really fast I'm gonna give example of garbanzo beans. I was just working on this. Pumpkin curry led weaning recipe for my pumpkin episode recently. Don't just like told my husband. Because i don't like to go storage more and sometimes i ask instacart key. Please get three cans of no added salt garbanzo beans and three that are regular saul in three that are reduced sodium. Like they don't get it or listen to mesa. my husband also doesn't either but anyway comes back from the store. I'm like just by like three different types of canned garbanzo beans from the same brand as teaching experiment so he brings back s&w brand. This is like not brand bashing by any means certainly not sponsor but like that was the brand. That was at sprouts that day and sprouts sexually a great store to buy canned because they have no added salt versions of almost all canned foods. So s&w beans. I hope he went to sprouts. I don't know where he went. He's really not a lot to go to the grocery store unattended. Most of the time but in this case comes home cans of low sodium and regular garbanzo beans. They cost the same. They look the same. But when you flip the label over and a half a cup. Serving the low sodium garbanzo beans had a hundred and forty milligrams the regular ones had four hundred twenty milligrams. So essentially there were three times as much sodium in the regular girvan beans as compared to the low sodium. Now in the united states. Low-sodium means one forty milligram or less per serving s&w pushing it to the upper limit right. They're gonna call that low sodium and they're going to max it out at one forty but it still three times less than the amount of sodium in the regular bonds beans again. They cost the same. They look the same to your baby. They taste the same. We want to air towards the side of the lower sodium foods and again if you rinsed the low sodium garbanzo beans. You would take that one hundred and forty milligrams down to about ninety two milligrams which falls below the hundred milligrams per serving threshold and again. Nobody's gonna eat half a couple of garbanzo beans as an aside. If you are serving your baby can garbanzo beans. You wanna slip them out of the skin and smash them with your thumb. We smash foods that are about the size of our bonds hoping or a blueberry smashing with your thumb up until the time if your baby is one and even beyond that if you want to be extra cautious so read your labels no added salt is going to be the lowest one low-sodium means one forty milligrams or less a tricky labeling law or rule is about reduced sodium reduce sodium just means twenty five percent less sodium than the regular one and the regular one can be have as much sodium as they want to so good example. This is like when you look at soy sauce. People will be like oh. Give me the green bottle giving the low sodium soy sauce soy sauce as you likely know is just liquid salt reduced sodium in the green bottle. That's not low salt that produced it just means there's twenty five percent less salt in the liquid sodium soy sauce then in the regular one okay so reduced sodium just means twenty five percent less. Read those labels carefully look for less than one hundred milligrams for babies in. You're in good shape. Let's talk about canned fruit. Okay yeah. Fresh fruit is great and frozen for the doesn't have any added. Sugar is a great option too but there are still foods that you might only be able to get for your baby in a conversion and they're totally fine provided we're not concerned about sodium in this case we're concerned about sugar so when you're looking at vegetables you're wanting to reduce the sodium in the conversions when you're looking at fruits you're going to pay attention to the sugar. The added sugar anything packed in light syrup or heavy syrup to stay away from the word syrup syrup just means added sugar and age to under should not have added sugar according to the american academy of pediatrics right.

"syrup" Discussed on The Nutrition Diva's Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous

"Hello and welcome to the nutrition diva podcast I'm your host Monica Reina. A listener recently asked me to look into an ingredient called glucose syrup. This is often used as a sweetener in processed foods, such as cookies, candy and other confections, and she'd read that it's a very concentrated source of sugar that supposedly contains four times the amount of sugar and calories per tablespoon as regular table sugar, the implication of course that one should avoid foods made with glucose syrup. I tracked this specific claim to an article written by a Dietitian for website called health line now this is a site that I consider to be a very reliable source in general I have found their nutrition articles to be thorough, accurate and very well referenced and sure enough. That statement that Glucose Syrup contains four times. The sugar and calories found in regular sugar, was footnoted and linked to the USDA's food and nutrient database the gold standard for nutrient data. One footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for light. Corn, Syrup, which is another name for Glucose Syrup. One tablespoon contains seventeen grams of sugar and sixty two calories. The other footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for regular table sugar one tablespoon contains four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. Case closed. Actually make that case overturned on appeal. Because unfortunately, this second listing was inaccurate. You see in addition to the tens of thousands of foods that have been analyzed by the USDA to create their amazing food nutrient database, they also include as a public service nutrient information for tens of thousands of additional packaged and processed foods, and they base that on information that's been provided by the manufacturer, and there are frequent errors. In fact, there's a disclaimer right on the page that health line cited stating that the info was provided by food brand owners who are responsible for the descriptions, nutrient data and the ingredient information. Well. In this case, it was just a simple typo. The manufacturer chose the wrong serving size the nutrient info that they uploaded four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. For a teaspoon of sugar, not a tablespoon, and for those of you who don't bake or maybe used metric measures. A tablespoon contains three teaspoons. So a tablespoon of Corn Syrup does not contain four times as many calories as a tablespoon of sugar, it is actually about a third higher. It contains seventeen grams of sugar versus twelve grams, and this is simply due to the fact that sugar crystals aren't as dense as sugar syrup. Something that manufacturers adjust for in their recipes. Look if you're concerned about the sugar or the calorie content of packaged food, it doesn't really matter how many tablespoons of an ingredient were added to the recipe. What matters is how many grams of sugar end up in each serving of the finished product something that's disclosed usually accurately on the nutrition facts label look mistakes happen and I sent an email to the Dietitian who wrote the article, alerting her to the error, and I hope that she and health line will be able to correct it. But. Here's a quick tip for anyone who's using the USDA's database to look up nutrient info. You can filter those listings so that they don't show the manufacturer provided listings. The USDA data is perfect, but it's generally much more complete and more reliable than the manufacturer supplied data. But I still have one other problem with this article on corn or Glucose Syrup because the author goes on to write that quote Consuming Glucose Syrup regularly may increase your risk of obesity, high blood, sugar, poor, dental, health, high blood, pressure, and Heart, disease, and quote, and once again she includes citations this time. She's linking to articles published in medical journals. But these articles are not about corn syrup per se they refer to all added sugars,

"Richard Valliere his father. Raymond and a t n San pier stood before the judge awaiting their fates despite their protestations of innocence. The three men had been found guilty of leading the effort to steal three thousand tons of Maple Syrup from a warehouse between two thousand eleven and two thousand twelve. The plot had attracted significant attention after authorities realized the Syrup was missing in July of two thousand twelve. Many of the people outside Quebec couldn't help but wonder why Maple Syrup the word cartel of folks imagery of violent drug gangs or perhaps oil organizations like OPEC that dictate the price of fossil fuels. Very few people think of the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers High Fructose Corn Syrup like aunt Jemima's or Mrs Butterworth's can be made in any old factory but real honest to God maple syrup can only come from a small area in North America. Where maple trees thrive and a large portion of that territory is in Quebec. Historically over seventy percent of the Global Maple Syrup. Supply comes from this Canadian province but the problem with Maple Syrup is the same. As many agricultural products. The quantity and quality varies from year to year looking to stabilize their product and fix their prices. The French Canadian government allowed it's private farmers to create the Federation in Nineteen Sixty six. The strategy worked by consolidating the various maple farms under a single banner. The federation insured had a consistent supply of high quality syrup to sell year round and by limiting how much went onto the open market the federation ensured that a barrel of Maple Syrup became thirteen times more valuable than a barrel of crude oil. In fact the federation built up such a big reserve that in June of two thousand eleven it had to rent additional space in another warehouse to store it. All unlike their main facility this auxiliary space had little security. No cameras no alarms. There was only a locked gate blocking the driveway. But the federation's officials weren't worried. They never even considered someone would try to. Steal Syrup. A single barrel weighed six hundred twenty pounds moving that much product without attracting Quebec's agricultural authorities would be nearly impossible or so. They thought the warehouse. The Federation rented was partly owned by the wife of a man named Avi Karen with thousands of barrels ripe for the Taking Karen instigated the biggest heist in the country's history but in order to pull it off. He needed help. He recruited Richard Valliere a self-proclaimed barrel. Roller Richard was an expert at working. Quebec's thriving maple syrup lack market. If anyone can fence the stolen syrup it was him. Richard brought his father. Raymond into the fold together. They rented their own. Space within care owns warehouse. It would be an inside job with unrestricted access to the warehouse. The thieves could smuggle out the Federation Syrup during odd hours when nobody else was there once they loaded up the barrels Richard and Raymond brought them to a backwoods processing facility known as a sugar shack one barrel at a time. They siphoned the syrup into their own containers with the transfer complete. They refilled the empty barrels with water and drove them back to the warehouse. Then it was time to sell the stolen goods smuggling it into New Brunswick in Vermont. The thieves sold their French. Canadian liquid gold to unscrupulous resellers like ATN. San Pierre using this system. The gang stole approximately ten thousand barrels of Maple Syrup nearly twelve point. Five percent of the federation's total supply and for months. Nobody was the wiser but like many criminal operations eventually day got sloppy coming up. The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist comes to an end now. Back to the story from two thousand eleven to two thousand twelve. A group of thieves stole eighteen. Point seven million Canadian dollars worth of Maple Syrup with no security at the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers Auxiliary Warehouse. It seemed like they could let the good times roll forever. But in July two thousand twelve the Syrup train came screeching to a halt every year. The Federation conducts an annual inventory. Check in two thousand twelve. That job fell to a man named Michelle go row. He didn't think twice about clambering. Over the tall stacks of barrels the massive syrup filled containers could more than hold his weight but is he climbed up one of the barrels nearly gave way once. He regained his balance. G- overall pried open the offending cask when he looked inside his eyes widened in shock. The barrel was empty and it wasn't the only one go- row called in reinforcements and they conducted a more thorough investigation. There were too many empty barrels for it to be simple error and if they weren't convinced the containers filled with water. Were clear evidence that the syrup inside had been stolen before long law enforcement was swarming over the Syrup Warehouse at burst. The case fell under the jurisdiction of the Quebec provincial police. But when the sheer scope of the heist became evident the royal mounted police got involved once they realized. Some of the so-called hot syrup had been moved across the border. Us Customs joined in in total. Nearly three hundred. People were interviewed. Forty search warrants. Were granted twenty. Six people were arrested amongst them. Were the barrel rollers Richard and Raymond Valliere and the New Brunswick based reseller. Atn San Pierre identified as the operations ringleaders. The three men finally stood trial in October. Two Thousand Sixteen despite the overwhelming evidence against them. They refused to own up to what they done. Richard Valliere did admit to siphoning the Syrup and refilling the barrels with water but he claimed been forced to do it at gun point as he told it. The mysterious assailant had ties to the Mafia. When it was son Pierce turned to take the stand. He defiantly told the jury. You can't prove what tree the syrup came from. But the prosecutors got some peer to admit that he resented the federation's grip over the market and there was zero evidence to back up Richards. Mafia claims the evidence that they had proving Richard Sold San Pierre. The stolen goods didn't hurt either. In the end. Richard Valliere was found guilty of theft fraud and trafficking stolen goods on April. Twenty eight. Two thousand seventeen. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and slapped with a nine point. Four million dollar fine if he couldn't pay it. The sentence increased to fourteen years behind bars. His Father Raymond was found guilty of possession of stolen goods and fraud with the intention to traffic. Some peer was found guilty of fraud and trafficking stolen goods as well. They're punishments were much less severe than Richards. Both were sentenced to about two years served in the community which is also known as parole. As for the stolen syrup itself a large portion of it had already been poured into the open market and couldn't be recovered. You might have even tasted some of it yourself..

Fonts Can Send Political Messages

"Here's something weird. Certain thoughts can send political messages. And with that. I am announcing my campaign for presidency using economic sense. Ms Well actually when you listen to this research you're gonNA realize why you don't WanNA use Comic Sans. Because nobody likes. It and liking fonts is one big part of this. I like Comic Sans No you. Don't nobody likes Comic Sans Vinyl run using papyrus even worse. My running mate will be Matthew mcconaughey all right well. A little while ago. A researcher at Virginia Tech named Kathryn Hanshin Notice that a local political candidate use different fonts on their signs in rural areas than they did in town as a political messaging expert. She wondered. Why was there. Something different about the fonts that worked best with people in the city versus people in the country so Hanshin turn that question into a research project. She and her team surveyed more than two thousand people to find out what they thought of various typefaces. And whether they thought fonts lined up with political ideologies sure enough they found that fonts can send political messages people see Fonseca's having liberal or conservative leanings. And the more people think of aligns with their thinking the more they'll like it. So here's the breakdown. Funds come in two basic varieties Sarath and sans Serif. A Sarah is a little liner stroke at the end of a letter. Think Times New Roman or your classic typewriter font the stuff you see in Newspapers Sans Serif Fonts are the ones without syrups silicon Arial Helvetica or the meriwether sands of the curiosity logo or just look at your keyboard right now. Chances are those letters are in a San Serif style. The study showed that generally speaking Sarah Fonts are considered more conservative and Sans Serif. Fonts are seen as more liberal. Bold type is seen as more conservative than Italic type but there are some differences within font families for example the highly serif black letter typeface. You usually see on the masthead of the New York Times and the Washington Post was seen as more liberal by conservative participants. Possibly because that's how they see these outlets specifically the important thing is that the more people viewed a font aligned with their ideology the more they liked it and vice versa. Basically this research shows that fonts have meaning and they're not just all about looks so as the two thousand twenty election heats up maybe take a closer look at those lawn. Signs and billboards design has a bigger impact than you think.

"Don't user was a full-time all the time brew master at a Spokane Washington brewery? For many years. He also enjoyed making his own beer on the side and joined a homebrew club known as worked or warriors at the rotating tap in his spare time when he wasn't working on new concoctions and recipes. He spent his time hanging out at dry fly. distillery next door. He became friends with the team. At Dry I fly in chatted with him often about all things to expand their operations and open a tasting room. They decided they wanted to have a house. Ginger Beer anybody's not familiar. Ginger beer is a non alcoholic. Beverage made by fermenting ginger east and Sugar Dylan jumped on the opportunity and began testing out different flavors and ratios. Does he enjoy the process but hauling around large kegs to and from the distillery was exhausting. This got him thinking. What if you could make something that had the flavor flavor of Ginger Beer but without the weight or time commitment to bring it? He began to experiment. Further came up with a recipe for making a craft syrup that could be used Houston cocktails or mixed with Soda Water. He started with the Syrup. Composed of fresh ginger root lemon juice lime juice and brown sugar then instead of carrying around kegs eggs a finished product. You just need to add an ounce of Syrup to four ounces of Soda Water You can have a delicious beverage either non alcoholic whereas base for cocktails while it took some time to get the flavor profile perfectly. Distilled only cost him about a thousand dollars to cover his initial inspections commercial kitchen riddle and the cost of goods and supplies to facilitate production. The dry fly. distilling team was also impressed. With Dylan's creation. They encouraged him to take it to the next level by making it in larger batches. This required a lot of work in research. But Dylan Dillon was up for it. He learned that. In order to sell perishable items he would need to acquire certifications from the Washington Department of Agriculture. Each certification took about five weeks to a complete between studying and testing. But he wasn't a rush so for the next year he worked on them periodically all while continuing to protect his recipe. That hard work paid off the certifications indications allowed Dylan to improve the quality and integrity of his syrups so now side-hustle syrups and that is the name by the way hustle. syrups is officially in business. He started by selling at local farmers. Markets customers enjoy the flavor. He brought in a prophet right away with that profit. Human desire to share his products more widely. I version was only available as a refrigerated syrup and so was therefore it more limited in its distribution in order to make it more marketable heated to make it shelf stable and hand just what that came with another round of certifications determined to create the highest quality product. He once again spent time and some money to get those additional credentials else. That effort paid off as well as he is now able to sell side Hustle syrups to local retailers eager. To get the word out he began cold calling doing demos and approaching pushing stories directly. He would bring samples of his product and asked to speak to a buyer as a result of his persistence. He's been able to build solid relationships which in turn has increased distribution achieving his goal throughout the process. The folks that dry fly distillery that original inspiration have continued to support. They've used his products in some of their drinks. And they've just teamed teamed up to produce a new canned cocktail between the SYRUPS. Finally since completing his certifications dillon has expanded the flavors of his syrups to include Tonic Orange Vanilla Vanilla elder flower and Lemon lavender.

"There i'm sure if it was going to be spelled syrup it would be our u._p. My constant arguments and that is the word phonetically is not spelled phonetically so you can't presume anything. There's just a tough flank like anyone who teaches e._s._l. English as a second language will tell you. It's a very difficult language to teach for that reason and so. I don't know if we can get a linguist on here in time. It'd be allison was working today. We can get her to book somebody who's like a linguist or a pronunciation expert.

You guys say yemen yinzer yeah so i'm not sure but i say it syrup europe okay okay. I mean both that doesn't make any sense like you say i say aunt an aunt. Wait wait wait. Wait wait back. Why would you possibly say aunt an aunt because sometimes i feel like saying one. Sometimes i feel like saying the other. Sometimes i feel like calling soda. Sometimes i call it pop as a little kid. When i grew up in vegas we called coke. Everything was coke so we'd be like texas.

They don't need any any judging but if you're going to judge up your pancakes then do it with whipped cream and fruit. If you want bigger argument is that they're inherently herons good alone and yet you say if i want to add chocolate chips or if i want to add whipped cream or if i want to add strawberries and fruit which would already be a mistake because fruit doesn't belong here any sort of dessert related product. Why are you going to then campaign and say syrup is the one thing we can add to it. When you're willing to basically weekly ad the rest of the free world because syrup is trash. It's not good.

What angela colt no he's not gonna brine the sports part of the right strategy by your god off limits so bad. Jason and i just got done with four hours. Go so unfortunately what you're getting is the the end of our argument there and not the beginning of a show here for your day but whatever this lebatardshow we can do this so jason decides that he is going to go all in on the idea this it's morning that syrup is not only unnecessary but a detriment to a set of pancakes waffles syrup makes pancakes and waffles worse. Yes that's stupid so so. I'm glad i helped us. You know whittled down your take something that's at least you can vocalise tank. It's still wrong though like at what point and i get it. You're on tour for a long time. If you're part of the band perry i i'm sure it's easier to eat pancakes and waffles the way you're describing than it is with syrup but can i can. You blame circumstance on this. Just your dumb preference no no. It's an absolute preference right now at home. If i go home today and i make pancakes. I am not putting syrup on them. I might put a little peanut butter on them. If i want i might put a little butter on them. If i want pancakes and waffles were there may correctly don't need sticky. Gobbly gook put all over him to try and make them taste good. This is something that we did stumble upon because of somebody on twitter which which is why aren't peanut butter and jelly pancakes more of a thing like i again i feel like as a nation. We have a fascination understandably so a peanut butter and jelly sandwiches sandwiches. They're great. They're easy to make and it seems to work like pancakes. Waffles tend to fall into the bread like loosely into the car bread families. He can make sandwich you kind of stuff. Why are we done that with more sugary breakfast with with peanut butter and jelly on it. I'm all in for that and to me it up right like you take the pancake. You put the peanut butter during the jelly in the middle of any rolling up like a little a lot..

"Hello, jane. Hey, Stacy Jean Luc here, actually, hang on hang on Stacey. I'm sure a hole into the maple tree in my backyard. Hang on. That that would be because because it's Vermont, I'm over mater, it's spring. Yes. It is. That means it's time to make the maple syrup. Yes. And I kind of know about this process. But how does this work exactly what you do to get this out of the tree? Okay. As you've heard you drill a hole, and you don't drill it. Very deep into a nice sturdy maple tree sugar maple as the best. Okay. Then you hammer in a little tap. And it's got a hole in it. So the sap can flow from the tap into a bucket, a little spigot like a little little spigot that interrupts the flow of sap, and then that sap flows into a bucket and you fill the bucket, and then you boil it down, and it takes forty gallons of sap to make just one gallon of syrup, and Jane, we interrupted your little backyard drilling operation to get you to tell us about the big business of maple syrup, which has really big economic implications for Quebec and for your home state of Vermont. This is the indicator. Stacey Vanik Smith. And I'm Jane Lindholm. I'm the host of monta dishing a daily show on Vermont public radio and I host, but y podcast for curious kids today big maple. To me. You know, it's always just been a breakfast condiment. Jane, you know, better because replaces like Canada, this is a commodity such strategic importance such high value that government-sanctioned cartel has stockpiled thousands upon thousands of barrels of nubile, Sarah.

My home state of Remond really likes to play up its role as the United States largest producer of maple syrup. Stacy we made about twenty million pounds of syrup in two thousand eighteen so okay to me, that's just an enormous amount of syrup twenty million pounds of serum. For middle. But apparently that is just nothing compared to Vermont neighbor to the north Quebec because that one Canadian province alone made a hundred eighteen million pounds of maple syrup in two thousand eighteen that is more than seventy percent of the entire world supply. And it is such a hugely valuable commodity that the price is completely controlled by a Canadian cartel made up of maple syrup producers in Quebec the current price for a barrel of maple syrup right now is about eighteen hundred Canadian dollars. So is this barrel of maple syrup? Like is it like how big is it compared to like a barrel of oil? It's like fifty eight gallons, and I think a barrel of oil is like forty two right? Okay. So a barrel of syrup is actually bigger than a barrel of oil. Yes, it is. But still it's also way more expensive. I mean, it's something like twenty times the price of a barrel of oil for a barrel of maple syrup. So we're talking really really expensive stuff. And it's so important to Canada that. There's actually a global strategic reserve in the middle of Quebec, there's a global strategic maple strategic petroleum reserve that we have in the US exactly except it's full of barrels upon barrels of maple syrup. I actually went to go see what it looks like I popped up over the border and went to this small town called Loria Ville, it's like in total nondescript town in the middle of Quebec jizya speech NC, just speak Elkin Cassiopeia puts puts Casilda to kick. That's Caroline sear. She works on the communications team for the maple syrup producers of Quebec, and she took me on the path a barrel of syrup takes through the warehouse. Here we are in the space where the producers can deliver their poll syrup in barrels. There's big squares on the floor those are skills because we need to wait every barrel. So in Quebec, which again makes the lion share of the world's maple syrup. Anyone who wants to sell in bulk apparently has to contribute? Portion of their finished maple syrup to this reserve. So here's how this works. The producers wait all year. And then they spend these long sticky days and nights boiling their sap indices. And then it gives them of it to the reserve, and they don't get paid for it at least not right away. So sometimes that's just a few months. Other times they have to wait a few years before that syrup cells, and they get their money. So why would any farmer agree to wait years to get paid for their product? Yeah. Because the global strategic reserve is actually a way to guarantee that high high price for maple syrup by removing totally removing the natural boom and bust cycle that would otherwise happen for an agricultural commodity. So this ball be apparently is just is normal and in good years than there would be this flood of maple syrup and the price will go way down and bad years. Wasn't that much Europe at all? And prices could go way way up not great for producers, especially when they were trying to ramp up production for growing global market one that wasn't going to like that kind. Fluctuation in supply in cost so in two thousand four the federation of Quebec maple syrup producers created a quota system controlling production. And then they created this global strategic reserve to make sure that the supply never runs dry. So a barely in good years. They just stockpile a

"Sounds good to me but okay maple syrup what is it great question great question maple syrup is the concentrated sugary sap of maple trees usually specifically sugar maples or acer karam although other species of maples can be used to and in fact are you can harvest sap from trees by literally tapping them i mean like putting in a spout like tap not by poking them fingertip over and over i'm glad to glorify yeah that wouldn't that wouldn't work as you you cook the resulting sap down into syrup and the resulting flavors quite sweet with notes that can be woody floral vanilla sort of carnally and or herbal whole bunch of stuff going on there yeah the trees are native to the northeastern north central parts of north america like like united states and canada area and they can live for hundreds of years and reach heights of over one hundred feet or thirty meters wow their leaves turn this really brilliant yellow then orange than red in the fall before falling off for the winter and they're they're lovely they found lovely yeah and their sap is collected in the late winter and then processed into syrup as sap as soon as possible syrup interfaces totally yes otherwise it goes bad because it's got high water contel gotta keep a cold got to use it soon okay not maple syrup maple syrup also once you open a bottle keep it in the fridge really that's not shelf stable.
