High desert flower farming in Arizona with Aishah Lurry of Patagonia Flower Farm
"Was thinking about you all week thinking, how is she farming when it's over a one hundred degrees so give us sort of a snapshot of your farm and like how do you cope with those conditions? Well, let me tell you first of all, we're in what's called the high desert where about four thousand feet above sea level. So we're in the mountain. Okay. So near probably always consistently ten degrees cooler than Tucson in almost fifteen degrees cooler than Phoenix. So settle a little secret about where you are is because of allegation exactly now it's hot outside it's a little hot, but you know it works in it's funny because one of the benefits about living here it does snow. We get snow in the winter, but it's usually gone by noon our ground never freezes. So the soil is always workable all and very rarely have like a hard frost. So if you think of like I, go up in Boston, it would start to get colder and colder nine pm pm and that's when the coldest would happen. But here the coldest time it seems like is early in the morning three or five. In the sun rises in warm things up in usually. So is just a click fraud so that can damage some plants but for the most part, we have no problem. So I don't know and I I just I guess, I have the desire to grow flowers GonNa make it happen or the variances is what's crazy is that it can be like ninety five degrees during the day and then in the thirties at night. It's crazy I mean I was thinking when you talked about snowing in the morning at least you're getting precipitation where other parts of Arizona are not getting precipitation. So even though it snow, it becomes the moisture the roots need that's in. It's wonderful when the snow slowly melts in and gets into the soil, you really can't beat that. while. So give us snapshot of Patagonia Flower Farm, and of course I pick a Patagonia as the clothing, but it's actually the name of a town and I believe a mountain somewhere, right? Yes. In it's actually pronounced Pentagon Yep. Okay Not like the brand to girl. No. So it's very hilly. We got a lot of grasslands here Yes. So it's really really beautiful. A lot of people think of Arizona and they think of Oh. It's everything's GonNa be dry. We've got quite a bit of green going on Yeah. It's really a beautiful town the Pentagon, yet self only has about a thousand people that that live here Old Mining town in it's quite a lot of retire. You can imagine a lot of artists, letter retirees, a lot of women. So it's an interesting sweets out. Wow. That's I wanNA visit. That sounds really wonderful. Yeah and is there much agriculture they're like. Are. You a lone ranger to use the Weser your lot. Of course. Now, a lot of people are gardening. You know it's funny because there is A. Organization here in town that I work very very closely with called Borderland Restoration. So they have a big greenhouse here where they sell native plants in the harvest seeds germinate the season, create more plans to restore the over you know. Overworked will say off. Areas of. Of. Southern Arizona. So so yeah. So. There are few. Let me think. So, before I moved here like years before there was a A Dalia grower here believe it or not, and I know that they must have had a lot of shade because we need the shape of the Dahlia's but But yeah. So a little bit here and there but I think borderlands nursery is the biggest like grower right now and it is mostly native Oh. That's so interesting. So your what's the size and scale of of your farm and give us a snapshot of what all the pieces to the puzzle there. Okay. So. I am what is called a micro farm about or thousand square feet, and I'm growing things very tightly together and I. You know I took 'em a Florette alumni I took her class in twenty seventeen. So I follow a lot of her protocols and the only differences I do a no till I keep the landscape fabric down and Yes. So so that's if I do the landscape fabric I've got who those short tunnels I don't have a greenhouse yet, but one day. And yes, I have an area where I'm doing mostly perennials and then I have my annual and at borderlands has been so gracious of allowing me to use a quite about fifteen hundred square feet where I've been growing sunflowers in in the ground or undercover know in the ground vendor landscape fabric on their property warring. Yeah. But I love it that like you've been entrepreneurial enough to figure out how to. Access land that wasn't being utilized, but you knew would be perfect for some flowers. Eight. Wow.

How to Read the New Testament Letters as a Whole
"This conversation is about how to actually read the New Testament letters as literary holes care from beginning to end you. You could have broke my brain talking about these letters being written and community. Yeah. Let's good. Yeah. New Appreciation for the lettuce come from Paul and his team team. Yeah, and there's a proscribed involved likely and it's just a new category, but it's really helpful for me to imagine that. And bring that in to what what does that mean. For this to be God's Word it's easier. Just imagine God zapping dude who transcribes something from the holy. Spirit Paul's. Meditating and praying in his study alone. Yeah. And they just here's the word of the Lord. To Talk. Feel more complex. But why can't God work in that way too. He clearly has. Yeah, we're, imagining. The scenarios from the actual data in the letters. You know that he names co senders yet co authors just not standard in first century letters. Yeah. There you go. So there are the product of Paul and his missionary teams in the working out the content over the course of years, and then as they travel around the roads on where we're GONNA go now is a little more practical and how to which is strategies and tools to actually read the letters and stuff. And learning how to identify what's important and things like that. So the first type of approach is just to understand the form of first century letters. I still remember learning how to like be taught how to write a letter. was, given. Template. Put. Certain things. Certain points on the page, the date upper left if in a homemade is your name. Yeah. I remember it felt weird to me. What would you put that information up at the? Left. and You write your name and address remember being like, what is it my address on the envelope? Why do I need? Yeah. Stuff like that. Do you ever do that? I can't even remember the last time. I actually wrote A. Paper letter but you. But if you ever opened up like we're document, yes, that's right and there's templates. Yeah. There's a letter typically, you're right I've done those. There's a business letter. Typically thing is I, don't create a I. Disease Tendencies of the one that's within page. Say there's a template for how you write letter. That's right and there was a template or templates. So here, we'll just summarize it in the most basic form. It's pretty intuitive. It's not rocket science angel letters in the centuries before especially in around the time of the postles you begin, the first words is your name. And then the receiver. So this called the opening address, you identify yourself who writing to and usually use some form of the Greek. Word Chorus, which means grace or favor to say, hello grace to you. So Paul to the church, and so and so Greysteel. There's almost always some little line of giving thanks to the gods for what after the opening address. After the opening, there's follows second main part of the form which is called the thanksgiving. Co you give thanks to the Gods I hear that you're in good health i. give thanks to the guts like then you get the body of the letter and then you get the closing. Letter, which is usually saying, hi to people if you want to travel plans a final prayer for the well-being or health or sometimes appraised the gods and then whatever PS post manner. So opening opening address, thanksgiving prayer just kind of a formality of sorts. And then get into it. Here's one Martin letter getting all the content. and. Then the closing that's right. And what you've got here is just a charts of like all of Paul's all the new letters and how they do this. And in the opening here like you've got First Second Thesselonians, collisions prescription you've got all the letters. And then you've got columns. Yeah, and you fill them out. So you've got Senator Collins Copied and pasted. The opening paragraph, Paul's the sender Yup. He gives himself the title usually. He does it and I the second Thesselonians. The next call movers called it the. Call the description. So the opening like here's what I am. Let me describe why that's right. It's important Dorian. Yeah. Yeah. So in other words when Paul the most basic form would be Paul Tucson. So yeah, he actually not one of his letters that way. He almost always adds a description of himself. Sometimes short, sometimes long he often names the group that produced a letter and then it comes from, they'll named people. So that's the first thing he He rarely puts just his name, usually his name in other people's names, and he usually describes himself with long or short descriptions, and so here's the basic point. Is that if you start comparing all the different beginnings of the New Testament letters, you'll notice when Paul or Peter or John is taking the. Forum and tweaking adapting it to the unique purposes of that letter. That's the basic idea.
Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread
"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.

Operating in the Time of Coronavirus
"Dock style reps podcasts. We're here today with Dr Ken Hood a fantastic and reputable spine surgeon from Phoenix Arizona. Dr Hood it's great to have you on the show now. The novel Coronavirus Cova Nineteen has caused a sharp decline in elective spine surgeries as an esteem. Spine Surgeon Operating Multiple Times. A week during the middle of this global pandemic. We thought you would be uniquely qualified to talk about how the novel coronavirus has impacted your practice. But before we get started we'd like to learn a little bit more about your professional background. Hey thank you so much for having me on the PODCAST The first time that I'm doing this and I think what's exciting venue Be More than happy to answer some questions today. in regards to my background. I'm Orthopedic Spine surgeon up in private practice now for five and a half years Prior to becoming a spine surgeon night training in Orthopedic Surgery Residents in Riverside California there was during my residency program that I became interested in spine surgery itself as a sub specialty so after orthopedic residency which is five years then went on to do a complex in minimally invasive spine surgery fellowship at the University of California San Diego and that was a urine length and then thereafter A signed for my first job at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I was there for several years and then subsequently have moved to Phoenix Arizona where continued to practice today fantastic. Let's go back a little bit further though. When did you decide? That medicine was the career for you. What was what was the motivation for that. So my my interest in medicine actually dates back to well before attending medical school It was during my undergraduate years The University of Rochester where I was actually an economics major and during one summer break I had the opportunity to shadow a orthopedic surgeon I wasn't specifically interested in orthopedics at that time that I just on the back of my mind. Medicine was a potential possibility so It was able to shadow orthopedic surgeon during the summer months and see his day today and and see the the types of things that he was able to do in that really sparked my interest. My Mama's retired nurse. And so you know the medical field is always been a part of my life to in in that regard but UH specifically That that that summertime shadowing of the orthopedic surgeon so it really sparked my interest interesting that that's a that's a different sort of spark that I've heard from from other medical professionals. Now I understand that you're second child. The daughter was just boring. Congratulations thank you. Yes yes Just two weeks ago. Healthy baby girl so Everybody's doing well how. How was that process a during the pandemic how how is the whole process of having a birth and going to the hospital for for that specifically or did you yes? says the very interesting obviously with covid nineteen and restrictions in place. Most hospitals The process at least from my standpoint was much different. We have another daughter is one and a half years old and comparing the two experiences was Pretty interesting so With our newborn I wasn't presents at any of the the the the prenatal visits So just here for my wife thinks going because they wanted to minimize People in and out of the allocation offices When the pandemic broke out Luckily by the time that she was ready to deliver they did allow one visitor after the birth so I was actually not physically present during the birth itself but afterwards was able to visit which was great but definitely a different experience than with our previous child. Were able to be present for the entire process. Now how is it balancing your personal life and operating at a trauma one centers? Is it difficult or have you found your way into it? Pretty easily It definitely has its challenges. I would say that over time. I've been able to develop a routine and schedule. That helps me navigate the day today even with that though taking level one spine trauma call does throw curveballs into your into your plan. Schedule on a daily basis The the balance is key Between personal and Work Life. If you focus solely on either components the other will suffer significantly And it's tough because sacrificing time with your family friends it's hard And at the same time you know if you ignore your practice or your patients Bad things happen as well So what I tend to do is try to stick to it daily routine Monday through Friday. I usually get up between four thirty to five o'clock in the morning trying to get some exercise in before heading into work the day to day various between clinic and operating room as well as call stuff but most days. I'm done by somewhere between five and six. Pm and then once I get home. It's one hundred percents Family time occasionally. I'll get called in the middle of the night and have to go into operation. Fortunately most things can till the following warning but it is a challenge And I feel like There's no perfect answer. Perfect scenario you just have to try to find as much balancing your life account

Gili Islands; All-Season Australia; Unforgettable Travels
"Let's start by exploring a trio of tropical islands and Indonesia place where Aussie backpackers scuba divers and South Sea. Adventures have found paradise the out of the way laidback. Gili islands call themselves turtle capital of the world with no cars no mortar banks and no worries. When Dave Seminar took his family to Bali they found the streets were too crowded and let their young boys safely wonder on their own so they headed for the nearby motor pre Gillian's instead Dave's here to tell us about Dave. Thanks for joining us. My pleasure thanks for having me Rick so describe the Gili Islands. A lot of US know Bali. Exactly where are the Gili Islands and How do you get there? Yeah that's the great thing about the Gili. Islands is that it's easy to get a pretty cheap flight to Bali and then from Bali. It's relatively easy to escape to these Gili Islands. Which there's several of the word Gilly means small island and Indonesian. But the three main ones Gili Air Gili Meno and Gili Chilanga. N- are about a two three hour ferry ride east of the island of Bali. So you go by bus or something to the little port and you help on a boat. And it's shuttling the travelers back and forth. That's if you don't mind getting potentially seasick if you have people who don't like long boat rides wreck can also take a short flight. Okay and then a fifteen minute boat ride instead if you prefer do that. I mentioned the religious culture kind of background. Bali is famously Hindu. Gili islands happened to be a little enclave of Muslim culture. How did that impact your experience? I wouldn't say it impacts the visitor in a huge way. Obviously Bollywood's really distinctive about. Bali is really interesting unique ceremonial Hindu culture and you know in the Gili Islands These are Muslim islands. However they're very popular with Europeans and you see people in Bikinis and there's beach bars all over the place serving alcohol and pork and things that would be forbidden in a strict Muslim countries. So I think if you are there as a typical traveller the fact that these islands are Muslim would not necessarily impact you in any way but I was actually interested to meet local people and I wanted to meet the chief of the three islands and to ask him whether there was any tension between these bikini clad beachgoers and partier and the local people. So I made an effort to actually sort of get to know local people into find out about the local sensibilities. But if you're there it's just as an ordinary tourists looking for some fun on the beach. It wouldn't impact you really at all. You were traveling with your son Right. Tucson Tucson's I understand. You took them to the school and you had a classrooms right kids that you talk to. What was it like a as a parent introducing your kids to such a different culture. There were six and eight at the time. We met a teacher actually on the beach who was selling necklaces. And whenever I'm in a very touristy sort of place I'm always interested in sort of the tension and interplay between traditional occupations and people working in the tourist trade so I think what happens in economies like these rix. I'm sure you've seen this. Is that all the sudden you can make more money selling necklaces on the beach to tourists or renting out your home. Then you could be being a teacher or policemen are traditional occupation so when we met this teacher on the beach with selling necklaces. I was really curious actually to know a little bit more about him and how he sort of balanced those two occupations and when he said why. Don't you guys come visit us at our school? I tried to rope both of my sons into going with me but I was only able to convince one of them so myself and my older son one morning our last morning there went to visit his school and we were invited to speak to three or four. Different classrooms full of children. Who asked US questions about America? Did they speak English? It was translated by the teacher. They spoke very very little English so most of it was translated by the teachers with girls. And the boys mixed up with the girls wearing scarfs. Yes this was another surprising thing. I asked when we met the teacher on the beach. I asked him whether the girls in the school Where the hijab and a head scarf and the Muslim attire and he said only a couple of them with his answer when we met him on the beach but actually we got to the school. They were all uniformly wearing conservative Muslim attire with headscarfs and whatnot and I found it interesting. Because I thought I think he was trying to tell us what we wanted to hear and he wanted to portray the island is a very liberal and tolerant place and I think-i projected onto me that I might think something negative about them if they were. You know dress conservatively. Which of course I wouldn't dear great traveler because you're sharing this with your child and also realizing ninety percent of the tourist just hang out on the beach and love the the cheap beer but a real traveler can venture inland a little bit and actually have an experience. That's as real as you ventured into a corner of Indonesia that had no tourism. It's not a matter of going to an untrusted touristy place it's finding the UNTER STI dimension of the famous place. I think it is and you know what we found to was the difficulty of what happens when tourism dominates an economy like the silent. Because this gentleman we met the teacher. He was very honest with us that he makes twice as much money selling necklaces on the beach. As being a teacher you know it made me wonder how can a society thrive when you have that sort of a distorted economy like that it is somewhat concerning because tourism can bring prosperity to announce can also sort of distort reality a little bit to
Q&A: Should I start a hustle with my best friend?
"Hey Chris this is tracy from Tucson. I've been listening since the beginning things for all the inspiration and puns. Here's my question for you. Should I start a hustle with my best friend? I've heard some of the stories. You've shared where people end. Having been falling outs with their business partners. I don't think that would happen to us. But other specific ways that we can help to prevent that keep up the great work and I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this. Thank you so much tracy so great to know. You're out there from the beginning. I always respect listeners who've been along for twelve hundred episodes in counting but of course if you have just recently discovered the podcast that is cool too. It's a community. We've got people all over the world interested in creating extra income building something for their future pursuing a creative project all kinds of good reasons. So let's talk about this question. Should I start a hustle with my best friend or should tracy? So here's the thing when she says. I don't think anything bad will happen and I don't think we'll have a falling out etc. Let's assume that's true in her case but more generally speaking. It's like no one thinks it will happen to them. It's like divorce or any break-up or anything goes really wrong. If you expect it then maybe you could prevent it often. These are unexpected. Things happen and what does tend to occur. Is that over time? Like here's the negative and I'll talk about the positive as well but the negative is that often. The partners in a partnership end up with different levels of motivation and interest or different levels of commitment so one person ends up kind of carrying the flag which of course can then lead to resentments or at least misalignment and it can become a strain on a relationship so my first question is always like. Why are you doing this if the point is to do something fun with your friend maybe do something else right? It's not like that person is disconnected from the rest of your life like you can always ask your friend for help and advice just like you would help them. I just doesn't mean you need to necessarily run a business together now the time to join forces because let's talk about that to the time to join forces is when your vision is truly aligned like you and your friend really want the same thing you are equally as committed you both share the same vision and are willing to put in you know the same amount of work released a comparable amount of work if you can answer yes to that question and you. Each have unique drinks complement each other. That's when you might want to proceed okay like if you're really good at something that your friend isn't and then vice versa. The net can be an ideal partnership. And even then I think Tracy asked about you. Know what are some ways I can prevent mishap even then take the time to address up front? Who's going to do what. How many responsibilities will be divided? If the partnership isn't fifty fifty in terms of both Prophet and investment you know. What will it be like if it's something else? Let's just decide this now so that we're not talking about it. Further down the road then last not least. This is always a boring recommendation. But it's important to get it in writing and this is not because you don't trust each other it's because you do and you want to maintain a good relationship. You want to do everything you can to protect that relationship as you begin a project on which may end up being amazing mutually satisfying etc. But of course he wants to protect yourself and you want to protect that relationship too. So that's why I think you know all things being equal. Your default option should be to do it on your own and you only look at the partnership when these characteristics are met in terms of same or similar level of interest and investment and then also perhaps that ability to complement one another or compensate for each other's weaknesses so that the partnership truly is more than just one plus one or three people or whatever it turns out to be. The point. Is that that combination. That partnership is more powerful than just the individual efforts combined. So that's what I think about that again. Thank you
