What to Do About a Shady Backyard Where Grass Won't Grow
"We also had a question. This week from sarah and she sent us some pictures to which is very helpful. Says fred my backyard is seventy five percent dirt. Grass is gone. What can be done now as we talked about pictures here fred. It looks like she has some very large trees or some larger trees and some large shrubs that may be giving quite a bit of shade in that area. Okay well that gives me a big clue especially if you can tell by the pictures. In terms of the size of the trees trees compete in two ways as shrubs and other things but at the same time Lawns are meant for open. Clear sunny skies for all intensive purposes. Now there are variations that theme but large trees shade grass so it cannot manufacturers much food they cause the atmosphere under themselves so to speak or or under the tree they cause little higher humidity for the most part grasp doesn't dry as early in the morning therefore subject more diseases of the leaf and so on and then they compete drastically compete with grass roots under under the tree Now having said that it's not impossible to go along. And i think she just flat out going to have to start over the first thing to do at where we can't see it for sure but if she can or if an arborist should be doing you can raise up with the head of the tree you can cause the limbs to be a little higher above the ground You can send the tree out and literally soon it out. Take some branches in appropriate places. Let more light down through the tree. Let more breeze blow through the trees dry grass encouraging better growth in the grass and so on it is however still very difficult in many cases under trees to grow on I have indeed on many an occasion where people prize the tree or they prizes position shading their patio evening etcetera etcetera where. We don't wanna hurt the tree at all. We will simply take out the grass. The remnants of the grass or just very lightly work the top two inches in terms of maybe some more organic material. some peat moss and so create a bed in which we're going to fly ground cover. They didn't matter of selecting the ground. Cover i'm gonna say such as myrtle pakistan eighty There are many many things that can be used but it comes time where you either manage the trees and check it the following year or two if the grass is growing better you you leave well enough alone. But as soon as those trees get a heavy hit on them again and continue to compete underneath. They're going to kill the law. That's just all there is to it for the most part. You just don't see lawns well. Lawn light grasses in the middle of wood so at that point you go with mother nature and created ground cover bed. It's well or what. I consider a total disaster would-be to take out the trees. That's that's not my first recommendation ever Rather work with them and on several occasions Without hurting the tree by covering the routes very much we have built up just slightly to get above the tree roots. Now one one of the infamous trees for lawn damage is norway. Maple they they just don't like grass. I swear it's written in their genealogy but They're they're so dense headed rooted and so on I've never allowed for more than two and a half inches of really good up soil being over the top of those roots. Because we didn't want to run a rotor tiller down through the roots and causes damage to the tree roots. So we build up just slightly In most cases now in one case the lawn slope the good bit where we add it only one inch. I'm going to say on the high side. And we put a little wall and put twelve inches of soil over the roots downhill side however Where the roots normally cover the entire area of the top of the tree. We kept the wall in under the edge of the tree. So that the roots that were exceeding the width of the crown could would not be damaged by extra soil. And it's been quite successful. That was done. Twenty twenty a couple of years ago and i've driven by their time or two cents and the bed is still doing quite well. they have gone on out toward the west side down side. All's well and they don't they don't about ruined their shoulders with the bumpy more and they don't ruin the trees roots and the grass is gone not to be worried about.
How to Start a Bonsai Garden
"Well i suppose there's limits but there's not much that can't be grown a bone inside trae when done carefully there are books it their classes on it So enjoy it. It's something to keep you to during the winter of any year and especially when we're so to speak trapped inside. I hope all of your being careful wearing masks. What your hands and all that good stuff. So let's let's just have some fun while we're doing now when i think Bone cy i think of like an evergreen type plant A pine or a spruce or something like that. So if i wanted to get started with bonsai what would you recommend. And how do you get started. Well mark let's go to those two seedlings i have run their deep deep in the debris of the beds. I knew they were there a year ago. Now they're they're this fall. When i cleaned up they are presently The juniper is i don't know maybe eight inches ten inches high Fairly narrow and upright like it's project and then the tax is lord knows which one Right now i can tell you. It's more of a horizontal grew. But i will dig those in the spring. Oh let's just say that being earliest probably march fifteen and then sometime hopefully before the middle of april while before they have gotten into really has it grew. Because i'm going to have to dig them. I'm gonna go out quite away sideways. And then we're way in to see where the roots are where their masked if there is a mass and then they will go right into the trays but they will have most of the soil that they started in shaking off off. Whatever i will then go to a very good mix of potting soil. Lots of lots of brigandage lots of water retention but not not sopping wet at any point in time. I will start them. I'm going to call it flat in the trade. I have several now old enough. That they're sitting above the edge of the trae by an inch and a half. They're starting to kind of look like a normal forest tree. In a very miniaturized way mine are not fussy. They're not sick. They would not be judged well in competition. They're just a lot of fun for me. So mark anything. Like that i have used The seedling of a privilege plant. I have used the ceiling will actually cutting that. I started of a A zillion now. Elliot's are a little tricky. I didn't have particularly good luck. This has been a while back. Haven't restarted that. But i have seen some magnificent zillions in bloom in bonsai trees. Pear trees maple trees. I tend when i'm looking for it myself. I tend to go for things that happen naturally. Small leaf and then by retarding its fertilizer and its water and so on. I can cause those leaves to be even smaller And then i have taken. What is this or rubber tree. Plant one of the indoor plants. And i have i think. Probably six or seven cuttings. That has now started to route. I'm looking for a proper trae. i'm gonna start a miniature forest of We'll see how that works out. So i may talk about it again along the course of this next year in terms of what kind of weapon having with the ceilings of this indoor plant which is a tropical They would have to come in before the temperature gets wet. Now let me tell you. I take mine outdoors in the summertime on a bench of the house. They get a full half a day. So they're in good shape and then they get shading the afternoon. So anyhow that being the sun factor. I leave them on the bench until the temperature in the fall. Hits forty five degrees on low night. Then they start coming in under the deck deck but under patio top and then into the house before that is the topic was come into the house and the others in on the ground in the compost bin. Half of it. I stack them usually flat on the ground. But a couple of my. I've kind of leaned in. And then i put about ten twelve inches of oak leaves over the top now scattered. I don't try to make out of it. All i wanna do is insulate them against fast freeze and thaw. And it's rare that i lose what in the wintertime so that's kind of the score and anybody can start them You will be digging taking either plants that are potted in a garden centre or whatever and there are many of those little ones that that you can start in the bone side trade. You just simply take them out of their pot. Usually wash off the soil of the roots. You could see what you're working with. Cut off the lowest ones work with the ones that are nearer the top of the soil in the container and then spread them out right on top of about a quarter of an inch of soil. Half an inch of soil in this container and then put some well now putting oil and then put some potting soil over them. Be sure very sure that the container drains They can be suffocated quickly with too much water. So big holes. For drainage i think screen over the top of that so they don't lose a lot of water and then i always put them on a tray indoors. They're they're bound to drop off excess water when i'm watering so always into a tray of their own For my furniture's safekeeping.

Replacing A White Pine
"We also had a An email from kevin to fred plan talk radio dot com and kevin says i cut down white pine. That was dying in my backyard. And i need another tree to plant in its place. Stump has been ground out. Can i put a new tree in the same spot. I was thinking about norway spruce. Well i'm going to say yes men that i had put some qualifiers He doesn't speak to how big this tree was. And then i know the approximate depths of a stump grinder esprit approximate depth. That it goes into the ground now if he starts with a very small norway spruce. I'm sure we're just fine if he wants to stay the five to six. It has a significant ball under it. Then we've gotta go into Either probing and getting all the grits and bark and stuff. Well chips out of that hole so you can set the bowl down in far enough because it the chances are that It's not a fault of them. it's just that they don't usually grind below about six to eight inches deep in the ball on a norway. Spruce can be better bigger than that now. Choices one is to get the pick and and try to dig out more of the stump in the middle of the whole or lay the spruce on its side very carefully at the very bottom. They're generally speaking in a rooted route. Ball plant there won't be much route that is alive and or going to stay alive and complete the plants task of getting started over again so you could. For example if the root ball is is twelve inches deep. You've only got eight inches to get down in there. We're number one. You can plant it high and then mound up around it. Which were we're fine but if you wish you can very carefully with Hand trowel Take off the bottom. Two three. i would think even four inches joust off the very bottom not the sides and then stuff that down in there the occasion for that stumped continue to rot out is very very strong White pine isn't going to be the most resilient would but at the same time you will end up with within the three years that it takes that nutri to get established adelson not enough routes to the side. It probably won't settle much if at all so you you can do this I know one gentleman. And i think every time i get into this he he had a plant in the concrete patio. Inner circle because patio. It died in due time he got a pickax and I think it's called an ads. But whatever it is he's been hooked that stomach because they couldn't get a grinder in there It took in the summer but he planted another. It happened to be an evergreen. He played in. i might have been exclusive. I don't remember now. He planted a tree right smack down in there and it was a little bit higher beginning. It apparently either just settled out a touch or The stump continued to write out below. Whatever but it ended up. Far as i know five six years later he had a successful tree in a spot that was a real murders lead to get do. So yes answer is simply quickly said yes you can do this but try to get it in the ground sufficiently deep and at the same time. I always harp on the fact. You don't want to plant things too deep 'cause they'll get too much water and soak up and and decay the roots so the chances of that happening in this situation are very remote. Do try to get it in the ground somewhere near the level that it grew in in the nursery.

Choosing and Decorating your Christmas Tree
"Don't know about you. But i used to be caught in the traditional decorations verses pretty designer ish tree quagmire and once had a condo as a single gal and i got a metallic green intentionally. Not real looking. Dr seuss looking skinny tree from my place that was decorated in brightly. Dr seuss ish colors. I was single. And i could do what i wanted fast. Forward a husband child later. And we started accumulating homemade and keepsake type ornaments. Each year we get a metal ornament with our family portrait on it so in eighteen years will literally have a tree called memory lane but these handmade and photo ornaments. Don't necessarily go with the aesthetic vision. I have each year. We have our ornaments stored in bins by color. So each year we can change up the look or mix two colors or whatever we choose without hauling all the bins. Only those we want because they're labeled my answer to this conundrum of looks verses homemade ornaments was to have both so my tiny twelve inch wide by five foot. Tall grinch tree goes upstairs with all the kid ornaments. My childhood ornaments are photo ornaments and the wool animal ornaments. That my son loves downstairs. It's the more aesthetically pleasing and real freshly cut christmas tree. We get the best of both worlds and we managed to do it without a lot of space. Size and proportion is tricky to judge. If you're going to cut down your own tree because large trees look small when sitting out in a field take you're measuring tape and measure the height of your ceiling and then subtract the height of your star for the top and then subtract the height of your tree stand and then allow for at least two inches of breathing room in between the top of the star and the ceiling. Next measure your maximum width allowing for ample space to walk around and take these measurements with you to the field. When buying or cutting the tree better homes and gardens has a great article titled how to choose the best live christmas tree which linked to in the podcast notes. The douglas fir is a long lasting cut tree that holds its needles well with a pyramid shape and bluish green color. It's one of the most popular types of christmas trees available in most regions. They're lush and full with compact branches and a strong evergreen sent for heavy ornaments. They recommend a frazier for. It's also very fragrant with by color. Needles deep green on top and silvery white below. This tree is more cone shaped so it would fit well in a smaller room or tucked in a tight corner. If you have a collection of heavy ornaments or lots of lights in garland. The frazier is a good choice with its sturdy branches. If you're all about the sent choose a grand a for with shiny by color needles. Bright green on top white striped underneath the grand for has needles that are softer to the touch than some other popular furs which gives the tree a fine textured appearance. This species is possibly the most fragrant among all the first boasting a strong spicy sent. The noble for has well spaced branches covered with upwardly curved blue green needles and aren't as quickly as some of the others though it stiff branches can support plenty of ornaments and lights noble. I have a similar pyramid-shaped. Douglas firs but better homes and gardens. Thinks they haven't even more classic. Christmas tree appearance with an almost layered look to the branches. If neat and tidy is your thing a scotch pine might be the one for you with a conical shape piney sent an excellent needle retention the soft green needle. Stay on the branches. Even if the tree gets dry so you won't be left with a lot of clean up if you forget to water it for a day or two. They often have slightly crooked trunks. Which can be a plus. If you like a tree with a little personality of fresh green color and tiered branching structure make eastern white pine contender. It's long thin. Needles result in a more texture is christmas tree and it's also a popular choice for read this the writers especially love a white pine for a minimalist christmas tree. Look they're flexible. Branches aren't the best for supporting heavy ornaments. But you can still deck them out with garland and lights.
Is Snow Good For Plants?
"Let's talk about snow for the plant new and discuss whether or not it's bad or good for plants. Yeah i was thinking about this. Because i had a question ellen from a listener who said. She didn't know whether she should plant this new plant because the snow and the winter cold might be hard on it and that got me to thinking that those are two different things the winter cold and snow. And maybe we should talk about whether snow just by itself is hard on plants. So that's what brought me to this topic. I think it's a really good topic because the answer might be counter intuitive to some people because the fact is that yes winter cold can be very hard on plants and sometimes snow can be depending on what kind of snow it is but snow actually is a great insulator for many plants and can help protect them against winter cold so i don't think that's something that most people understand. Yes you're absolutely right. I've had people say to me. What's the best protective mulch. I can put on the garden. And i usually respond a twelve inch snowfall because it keeps the temperature of the soil. Constant it it protects the rupaul's from heaving. Oh and this was interesting to me. Maybe you knew this. But i did not i read and hopefully this is true that as snow falls through the atmosphere it actually collects nitrogen and sulfur from the air and then kind of like delivers that to the ground. I'm going to say that only partially correct. Come because you're right. It does collect that as it falls through the air. And if that is one of the spring snowfalls or maybe. I don't know maybe you have. These snows more in the santa fe area. Then we do here. But in order for that nitrogen to be delivered into the soil. The snow has to melt fairly quickly after it falls. That is so interesting. Because in santa fe we get six inches in it melts twelve inches. And it's gone. It accepts in melting snows and melt so for you. That's no fall is what they call. Poor person's fertilizer for us here in the northeast where the snow typically stays. You know through the winter on the ground or at least say's first several days or a week or two Then all of that nitrogen that those flakes have picked up falling through. The air actually goes back into the air as the snow sits and so we only get the poor person's fertilizer when we have that you know freak two inches of snow in april and it melts right away. Well since our soil is much crappier out here than yours is. I would say that we need it. Well snow does contain. It's got nitrogen or not. It does contain a lot of airspaces snowfall. Which is why. Snow makes good insulator. I've never had as many beautiful fox gloves. As i had the year after we had a good two feet or more on the ground all winter long so it can be a great insulator for plants and of course the one way that snow might be detrimental to plants is when it's really really wet and heavy and either mashes plant down or break slim's off of shrubs or trees or that kind of thing or occasionally if it falls very wet and then it gets really cold and freezes into ice and again can break things. Yeah and that's more likely to happen in. If you've got like an early fall when the leaves are still on the trees in those leaves hold a lot of snow or if you have evergreens that are going to get way down and sometimes you see ann arbor vitae that gets covered with snow intellectually like split. And that's very sad. So what i do usually if i get a very heavy wet snow and i can see. The branches of trees are bending over. As i'll go up out there and knock some of it off actually discovered one other way in which snow is beneficial to plant. And i haven't thought about this but it makes sense when you think about it in a winter warm spell if you got a little bit of melting and there was no snow cover some plants actually say oh yeah it's time to start growing they'll sprout and then it gets cold again in that greenery dies off but if you have a nice snow blanket down and it warms up some of. It's going to melt but a lot of it's going to stay on the ground and protect that plant from sprouting too soon. Which i thought was kind of cool. Yeah snowfall moderates the possible heaving and thawing and freezing and and all of that back and forth temperature swings that seemed to be happening more and more in many areas. A snowfall
Exotic Bases: The Radix Point
"So the first thing we're going to talk about is the rate x point Known in decimal notation as the decimal point and its use of course represent non integer numbers. Okay like i was. Just you know interjecting eminent ago. How we have are ones tens hundreds places or so on base ten or are going left of gore's right right so but what if we're going to the right of the decimal point then we have our tenth. Tenths places are hundredths places. Notice the emphasis on the t h because were going with fractions this time. So it's like say. I were in binary base two than we would have. Our one half place are one quarter place. One eighth sixteenth. Six thirty four sixty four and so on so what would point one one being based too. I mean the ability to go through that. So let's say that we had the number point one one in based too so we have passed the rate x point. We have a one set first. One is in the one halves place in the one house plays in binary so we have that pretty much any base has especially inter inter basis has a ones place. So that is because it's whatever your rate x number is the homebase kind so it's that to the power of zero and that's just one and then pass the rate x point we start going to the negative ones play like the negative. I power negative second power and so on so because a just a quick review three to the negative to for example is one divided by three to the power of two or three squared switches. One nine exactly. And so in this case if we're talking about the number point one one in binary than we have so we have won the first place past the brakes. Point is one half and then we have the next part. Which is the one quarters place so what we can say is that this is the same thing as three quarters or point seven five as we would write it in decimal because it's one house was one quarter right and there's one half times one plus one quarter times one right exactly and so point one zero one in the same vein you would be one half plus zero tied one quarter which is zero plus one eighth which is five eighths so but so the development of these numerals is actually surprisingly late talked about how he do iraq numerals. It'd been around in the early of verse millennium. But now but it wasn't until the i did until the tenth century a d by hudson oakley dc a mathematician and polymath. Who wrote a book called earth earth. Medics of luke. Dc original title. Keep tub of sue his al hindi in every translation. I've found is called the arithmetic of. But i notice that there's this hindi in there and i haven't had time to research. The original arabic of something tells me that there's something there's represented. Hindu arabic numerals inherited the title. That hasn't been translated. And as i think it's just weird how long it took and i think part of the reason why is commerce isn't always you know you go to the store. You don't buy ten eggs by dozen eggs right right. So i mean i don't know why do you think it took so long from the time that like arabic numerals when introduced to talk about decimal points Instead of the announced breaking numbers into small numbers you just use smaller units of measurement. And it's like you know you know that twelve inches make a feet. You're not as likely to think about how three inches is a quarter of a foot which is point two five which is to hold decimal points so it gets very abstract. I suppose
Apple Releases macOS Mojave 10.14.5 Boot Camp Update
"Macrumors says Apple's most recent update for boot camp has let the beans out of the bag. Last week says the piece apple releasing update for boot camp its utility for running windows on a Mac. While this update would typically be unremarkable several macrumors. Readers noted that the release notes reference an unreleased twenty twenty model of the sixteen inch macbook pro. macrumors points out that. This could be a mistake applegate the sixteen inch, macbook pro, a high end graphics option earlier this year. But it's still calls that machine macbook Pro Twenty nineteen. So maybe apple accidentally calling that machine macbook pro twenty twenty or maybe. Apple has accidentally signaled a sixteen inch macbook pro on the way. The next obvious question. Will that machine be among the first powered by apple? Silicon. macrumors seems to think not. While, it does point to growing rumors of an apple silicon event in mid November. The peace has that transition is expected to start at the lower end for notebooks such as the macbook air thirteen, inch macbook pro, or possibly even the return of an ultra portable twelve inch macbook. If the rumors are true. We don't have long to wait the off groomer date the seventeenth of November. Is Three weeks from today?
An average oak tree can shed 550lbs of leaves
"You told me a statistic. For the show about an oak tree that absolutely astounded me. Well. Yes and I don't know who figured it out if it doesn't surprise me a bit now, there was no definition to this, but it was stated that a great big, old, oak tree. When defoliants, it drops approximately five hundred and fifty pounds of leaves Oh now one no wonder. My back hurts when I write. Exactly right exactly. Right mark and it's one of those things. especially when they think of coke, I like to use oak as a mulching type of leaf because when when they dry and full. They they stay cupped up they stay arched up they don't they don't. Shall I say meltdown like many other tree leaves do and this gives me A. Factor. when I when I put him over a plants roots and so on where the air can move through its slows the freezing and thawing. But at the same time, they don't become a wet mess because well, for example, a wet mess having used leaves under mums can kill them over the course than later because they don't like wet feet anytime of year. So it's just one of those things What do you think a big old oak tree you could stay under no danger but in total, it'll drop five hundred pounds of leaves now. I watched something happened one time that is related to this. starlings landed in great big old tree as it is, and I mean a whole bunch of I was sitting where I was hunting and I sitting very still and I could watch this they all descended on this tree which didn't i. I couldn't see much difference. Then then something spooked them. And they all flew off at one time and and the limbs in that tree raised by A. To twelve inches from from the release of the load, the birds sitting in the tree and. That's that's just the darndest thing. But in this case, it's OK leaves. It is something that an engineer of somebody Maybe they needed to have more to do that day. But at the same time, it's interesting to think that there is that much weight of just leaf in a tree.
Can I Prune an Overgrown Rhododendron Now or in the Spring?
"Jason said in question. He says I have an out-of-control Rhododendron. It's about twelve feet high and it's moving out over the sidewalk. I'd like to cut it back is now or spring better time and I'd like to cut it back to three or four feet tall week. Okay. I don't know how to handle this. Sorry did he hasn't been keeping up with it Over time. However, that being said I'm going to start with a truck accident and that is a mail truck that was parked. It was evacuated package were taking the building the truck brake apparently hadn't been set. It turned up over the curb went in and broke off about twelve foot tall rhododendrons ripe add bumper height. So let's just say it thirty inches I have an old Lord. That's the end of those while I went by two years later. They had been left in they had to had all the dead removed and so on and they had grown back another six inches. I suppose nine inches each year. I was dumbfounded. I thought it would kill them. However didn't so where what is being suggested is a really delicate in terms of balance of what will and won't make it I'd say go ahead now, I would definitely under these circumstances cut it off in the early spring. I don't even know what date to put on it, but around April 1st some time prior to the plant. Well it just even back into March sometime prior to that plant wasting any energy putting out New Growth new leaves flowing etcetera. I would prone it Bend so that it can log So to speak just to the loss. It will not have expended energy from the root and Crown area up into the plant. It won't have used up enough. But what there should be plenty of energy left to start to excite the buds in the by that means get them to Growing that are on the lower parts of the plant. Now, this is risky. However, as I say the truck off on its own it took out three plants and I was dumbfounded that came along quite so nicely. So if well, first of all, I would do it in Spring only 1/8, I would do it before you even lose the flowers just so you don't cause that energy deficit any greater than it will be then I would definitely dress the surface around those months starting twelve inches out or at a plant thirteen twelve inches out from the trunk. I would put some acid fertilizer on the ground throughout the whole area. That would have been the drip line of the place. It's a 12-footer could be 4 or 4 and 1/2 even five feet across.
Sally update: Storm downgraded to tropical depression

"So we all know that the imperial system is a mess compared to the metric, and technically here in the US we use U s customary units which are similar to the British imperial system in that both have things like yards, pounds and gallons, but at least historically, the size of each of those measurements was slightly different in the two systems in the nineteen sixties the UK and the US, agreed to make their yards and pounds the same by scaling them against the and kilogram. This change didn't make too much of a difference for the UK but. US customary units varied enough that we were left with two distinct systems for linear measurement within the US customary unit system, the international system in the US surveyors system. Now, practically, this hasn't meant much for most people I. Mean you might not even be aware that there are technically two different measurements for feats like foot twelve inches we have two different standards here in the US and they differ by about one hundred of a foot or point one, two, six, seven, two inches per mile. So it's not all that much but for long lengths, it does add up. Over. A million feet, there would be a difference of two whole feats. And one group of people who really have to be concerned with this surveyors. Quoting The New York Times most states mandate the use of the old US survey foot for their state coordinate systems, which allows surveyors to take into account. Earth's curvature in their measurements. A few states mandate the use of the new international foot. A handful do not specify which of the two feet should be used. Arizona for example, is an international foot state but when employees with the Federal Aviation Administration or the US Army Corps of Engineers or the park service measure there they use the. US survey foot other problems crop up when surveyors measure from one state to the next unaware that the two states use different feats. In some cases large projects, employees, international surveying firms whose employees are unaware that America has two feet. Some surveying computer software will not recognize the existence of two feet and even hand calculators usually default to the international foots and quotes. Michael Dennis and Arizona based Surveyor geodesy with the national geodetic survey had to put up with this confusion and errors for years. Recently. He decided to suggest retiring the US survey foot and going to a one foot only system. He and his colleagues at the national genetic survey were already working on recalibrating coordinates of the National Spatial Reference System. So the timing seemed right to make a small but radical proposal. Displaying. Crumbling about patriotism in history, it was ultimately will receive an as of January first two, thousand, twenty, three, the US survey foot will be no longer. According to the National Institute of Standards, and Technology we will only have the international foot. Or. Really since there will only be one just the foot.
Climate change is hastening lakeshore erosion
"Climate change is making more waves and eroding the shoreline of Lake Superior more quickly. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hunter on the shores of Lake Superior this is climate. So I'm back from vacation now, working inside the lab today, but I can still hear those lake superior way of swooshing in my head for the last three summers. We've stayed at some lovely cabins near. Grand Marais each year. The Big Lake has eroded the edge of the bluff closer to our cabin and this year. The edge is only about three feet away, and it's a fifteen foot drop down to the waves below. Charlie. Walters owns the cabins hi Charlie. Doing I'm doing great. How much would you say that? Shoreline has eroded in the past couple of years well this last year has been about a foot the previous year. It was only a couple of inches, but this last season it really picked up pace. We were pretty stunned when we saw the cabin this year that we stayed in its now perch, just a couple of feet from the edge. What are your options to save that cabin and address the shoreline? To Cabin, but you'd still have the Rozhin problem. I'm told you know they'd have to build up with rock and put some type of filter Mesh screen in and back fill with some soil and. Anyway be a long process and in the range of forty thousand dollars, so Charlie if this repair does turn out to be forty thousand dollars. What does that to Your Business? What's the impact there? My wife grandmother came over from Norway and his only things since nineteen thirty two. And right now in the process of fixing up the cabins, and then paying off loans, so it's a pretty big dent. We basically have to stop everything else. We're doing Charlie Walters. Your cabins are lovely I wish you the best of luck and I hope we talk soon all right. So many Lake Superior Property owners like Charlie are now facing costly repairs from erosion damage heavier precipitation in the lake. Superior watershed is boosting water levels to near record, highs and warmer winters mean less protective lake GEIS's forming to buffer the waves that may be speeding up the erosion process. Jay Austin is a professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth and works with the Large Lakes Observatory Hi Jay here from you, Paul? So how high are water levels running on lake superior now and in the past few years. We've had a remarkable run since about. About twenty seventeen of extremely high lake levels on the order of ten to twelve inches above what we would normally be seeing at this time of year, and what's the climate change signal for higher water levels in Lake Superior is it as simple as heavier precipitation in the Lake Superior Watershed when it comes right down to it? Yes, last several years have been much wetter than we would normally see here. The other one is the fact that is suppresses surface waves, and hence protects in some sense shoreline from that sort of wave driven erosion. The long term trend is indeed towards less is and how much of a winter temperature difference between total ice and no is does there need to be to make that change unlike superior? A year, where there is significant ice on the lake, and so people are going and visiting the ice, caves and people are ice fishing, the difference between one of those years at a year with basically no ice can be due to winter air temperature differences on the order of two three degrees. Fahrenheit, so the system is extremely sensitive to these relatively small shifts in winter, climate conditions J. Austin. Thanks for making the time in good to talk with you again. Thanks for having me on.
How Do Betta Fish Work?
"Hey Brain Steph Lauren Vulva bomb here. With their striking bold colors and flashy fins. Fish are one of the more popular types of fish sold for home aquariums. Perhaps because unfortunately there are a number of misconceptions about these creatures. The truth is that they're not as hardy and easy to care for as many believe Beta fish, sometimes called fighting fish are tropical fish native to Southeast Asia Wild. Betas typically live in rice paddies and other shallow stagnant bodies of water because these wetlands. Wetlands routinely shrink during the dry season. Betas hop from puddle to Puddle, trying to find a reasonably deep pool where they can hang out until the rains return due to these conditions, Betas developed what's known as a labyrinth organ that gives them the ability to obtain some oxygen from the air as well as the water. The sub order that includes Betas are sometimes called Labyrinth fish or Jeremy. Betas got the nickname fighting fish due to their territorial nature during the eighteen hundreds. Perhaps especially in what's now Thailand, the fish were bred for this purpose and fights were forced for entertainment. Betas were first introduced to the United States in the twentieth. Century, wild, Betas generally have small fins in our dull, green or Brown in color, but today's pet Betas have been bred to be quite colorful with elaborate fans with proper care, a pet beta. Beta can live for two to four years, but before you buy one, make sure you're aware of these five common fish tails about the the Beta fish. Perhaps the most widespread myth about Betas is that they can live in small bowls. The opposite is true Beta, fish need a tank that's at least five gallons about twenty leaders and ten gallons, or about forty leaders is better. The origin behind this persistent myth is uncertain but May. May come from the fact that Betas are often sold in small containers, and because they have some ability to breathe out of the water, but this can be stressed if they're housed in close quarters, especially if they share space with fish, perceived as rivals, small tanks being, there's nowhere to hide even when house alone or with fish that they get along with. They still need hideouts to escape to, but while the tank should be spacious. SPACIOUS, it shouldn't be too deep as Betas are more comfortable, swimming back and forth not up and down. We spoke via email with Matt. Layton a longtime Beta fish owner and editor of Vivo Fish who explained that Betas should be kept in tanks, no deeper than twelve inches or thirty centimeters, noting that their fins aren't that powerful. He said if it's too deep, the Beta may not be able to get up to the surfaces easily. Easily. It's heartbreaking to see a Beta struggling climb and then be pulled down to the bottom by his tail. Another myth is that Beta aquariums don't need a water heater or filter, but Betas are tropical fish that need to be kept in water, ranging from seventy six to eighty one degrees. Fahrenheit, that's twenty four to twenty seven, Celsius unless you're home never veers hotter or colder. You'll need that heater. A water filter is important to even. Even though wild Betas live in murky puddles without a filter, the fishes excrement and eaten food can make the water toxic, though be short purchase filter with a gentle flow as Betas. Delicate fins do better in calm water in addition that their fins could be damaged by the section in higher flow filters. Meanwhile, it's actually true that Betas don't mind being alone, and they tend to have issues with other fish, if male Betas are placed. Placed together or placed with other fish that have bright colors and large fins. Their natural territorialism often prompts them to fight. However they can definitely live with other aquatic creatures, such as ghosts, shrimp snails and African Dwarf frogs they can also live with other species of fish, but they do best with bottom dwellers was small fins. They're less likely to fight over territory like the coolie loach, female Betas can often live harmoniously together given adequate. Adequate space, which means at least five gallons or twenty liters per fish, but always introduce new fish slowly and monitor them guides. Online can help you acclimate your existing fish to the idea of new tank. Mate tricks like rearranging hiding spots in feeding your current fish before adding a new one can help, but you should always watch them carefully for a few days and be prepared to move an aggressor to another tank or another home. Another misconception is the Betas can live off of plant roots alone while Beta. Fish are often sold in small vases with the plant. Betas are carnivores, not herbivores in the wild they chow down on insects and Larva, so feed your pets, fish pellets or flakes specially crafted for Betas you can supplement with high protein treats such as blood worms and brine shrimp, but remember that fish can become overweight just like any pet, so feed in moderation, ideally only as much food as the fish can eat within three to five minutes finally. Don't expect a Beta. Beta to be layabout. Many people observe Betas and pet stores where they're often kept in small containers, hinder their activity, and many owners erroneously keep their efficient unheeded water, which makes them lethargic, but Layton says that Beta fish are playful in the proper setting. He said I've seen them. Push Moss balls around dance around their tank display their tails, and generally be quite active. Betas are inquisitive, and will interact with plants, toys, and structures, floating or sinking. Just make sure they're fish safe and don't have any sharp edges. That could hurt those beautiful fins.

And then we'll be close to seventy on Friday and then seventies look likely for the upcoming weekend. All right. Thank you for all of it. We appreciate it. All right, April. Thanks marty. Touchy guy soon looking forward to the end of the week seventies again. Yeah shorts. Well for me. At your how you're not looking for. Yeah. We wait to talk about your Colorado Avalanche. Have you seen what Joe Biden did and the bounce? He's gotten just as he announced he's running for president last Thursday. He's running in twenty twenty and his years of service and time in politics offer much to pick at and challenge. One of those issues is the confirmation process of Clarence Thomas in his treatment of Anita hill. The former VP talked about it with Robin Roberts GM and moving forward and deciding to run you reached out to Anita hill. She has recently said when asked a few felt that was an apology that you had extended. She said no that she said I cannot be satisfied by simply saying I'm sorry for what happened to you. I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability. And real purpose. Think that's what she told me. I was grateful. She took the call. And and one of the things we had I don't want to get in our private conversation. But the point is that look I was chairman of the committee. I believed her from the very beginning. But I was chairman she did not get a fair hearing. She did not get treat it. Well, that's my responsibility. And I committed that I am determined to continue the fight to see to it that we basically changed the culture in this country where a woman is put in a position where she is disbelieved as the committee chairman, I take responsibility that she did not get treated. Well, I take responsibility for that, you take responsibility. I take responsibility for that. Because I was the chairman I was unable to figure out a way how to change it do talk again. Because look here's the deal. She just did not get treated fair cross. The board. The the system did not work Biden there with Robin Roberts from GM. And even though he just stepped in the race by no, ready broken away from the pack, and you see it impulse oc-. Thirty nine percent of voters who are Democrats are democrat leaning independence say he's top choice for the nomination that puts them the former VP more than twenty points, et of his nearest competitor. Senator Bernie Sanders thirty percents head three thirty points ahead of Elizabeth Warren who's the third in that race right now with only eight percent. Yeah. Now, this may be I'm wondering in early because all comes down to the money fundraising in and the fact that Joe Biden has a lot. We talk about Anita hill of a record to go out. I wonder if they'll start picking those scabs. Popularity more reaction to Democrats feeling there are more progressives in the race. And they want somebody more traditional more of the Obama ilk. My my my guess is. Yes, in the fact that he's got the Pennsylvania routes and those disaffected voters who did not like Hillary Clinton, but voted for Donald Trump. I think that is what he's trying to pull back into the party. Also big with African American voters. We shall see some forty.

So now, I'm kind of freaking out like trying to get a doctor. You can get a you know, what happened. I guess snap it cut its napped and half. But there was a bunch of chips in the narrows exposed. So they didn't really know how to put it back together. But they figured it out, except when it healed it rotated. So now, I got a gun stock deformity on it. Okay. So because they couldn't pin it, I guess because all the broken chips or whatever. So they just put a rod. But it didn't it didn't stabilize it everything. Okay. Now took about seven months to come back from that injury. Wow. I was low as a little scared because of the muscle wasn't coming back for like, six months. And then all of a sudden one day. I woke up muscle was come back like working again. There was there was nothing. There was nothing. So is that because the Expos nerve that? There was no connection with anything but came back.
