2020 MLB playoffs: Wild-card standings
"What a wild wild. Ride of a major league baseball season like unbelievable they got this thing in somehow someway was obviously a sprint Nada marathon like we're used to. But with that being said, there is a marathon of a Finnish coming on the final day of the regular season with forty four different scenarios as to what could happen for the twelve teams that still hanging in the balance of whether or not they're going to be in the postseason. It's. Pretty interesting to be honest with you John I mean one of those. Unbelievable seasons that we didn't really necessarily even see happening. It does happen I haven't necessarily been all that excited that into it but forty four scenarios regular seasons wild final day of the season that that's gotta be somewhat intriguing to people right? Yeah quite frankly I didn't realize it was that many I guess that that probably includes. The American League seating possibilities because they're the eight teams in the American League. We all know which teams are going to be in there now and only Tampa Bay number one in Houston number six of actually confirmed their exact seating spots. The others are all over the map depending on what happens today and in the National League only the top four seats are actually confirmed as being in the spots that they are currently and. And then we've got to other teams that are qualified and then there's fourteen in the National League competing for the last two wildcard spot to number seven and number eight seed. So I didn't realize it was forty four. That probably takes into account the combinations of of seating changes that may take place in today's games from today's games in the American league. In terms of teams actually getting in. It's down to four teams in the National League playing for two spots, and now we may not even know today if that is. The final situation because. depending on what happens today the cardinals may have to travel to Detroit on. Monday to play two games that were postponed earlier in the season because of the cardinals cove in nineteen situation. So frankly, it might be Monday be before we know which eight teams are in in the National League. Yeah it's it's been a very short sample size It's been a sprint rather than a marathon but to your point a bit of a marathon finishing that a huge number of combinations and. I was trying to figure it out this morning and I think I've kind of got it down as than in the National League as to how this may shake out I see four or five major combination. So if my brain is working correctly though those all things can happen but a lot of it's dependent on whether the cardinals have to play those two games in Detroit on Monday.
Review: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2
"The Galaxy Z. or Fold to. The Galaxy said full to phone. So you may remember I had last week I had the Microsoft duo which was a dual screen phone. That on Hanjin, the middle unfolded. And, I thought this just the software didn't really use it very well. I loved the idea was beautiful harbour, very thin and light and. And everything but it just it was Kinda Janke I could make it fulltime phone. So I sent it back and I took the money. And then some and apply because this is a two thousand dollar phone this galaxy fold, which means you don't have to worry about it 'cause that's ridiculous. Ridiculous. Four Times more than you need to spend for phone. If you need a new phone, you want Andrew get get the Pixel for a or you know that'd be fine. The Google phone but I'm you know me I'm interested in technology and and what we're technologies going. So I thought well, I should try this. I can always return it. If you know what I don't think I'm returning it's pretty cool. So it is thicker and heavier than a regular phone because it you know it's got it folds. It's like a sandwich, a sandwich with nothing in between. But on the other hand, the F- The unlike the Microsoft phone Microsoft not a they don't want you to think of as one. It has screen when it's folded. So you can see notifications, you can actually use it. It's a little it's thinner than a regular phone would be. So it's kind of you know it's not a it's kind of an odd ball screens, really thin and tall compared to any phone that you might use but still. Totally usable can and you don't look like a silly person making a call. It's just it's Kinda. It's Kinda thin. Kind of kind of kind of a weird aspect ratio, but then it has a fingerprint reader face reader, which is good for these days of masks. But then. Let's say you you. You launch a program or something on the front face when you open up the phone, it goes to the open when it's so big. So big nice and spacious. Now. It's like a little tablet and yeah, it was a little concerned about the folding screening indefinitely see that where the fold is doesn't doesn't disappear completely. But it kind of disappears from your awareness. And I have to say. It seems very well made. I wasn't going to get this because I thought. Oh. This Janki. is going to be silly this can be really Janke. You know it's really fun taking a picture with this big screen is huge. Like a bigger with an IPAD which I've always mocked people for. Taking a picture with an IPAD. So this isn't quite so big boy. It's kind of Nice, because you can really see what's going on. You know the pictures it's really like it's like holding. Like holding a big print in your hand. So you can see what it's GonNa look like when it's printed. And of course, Samsung always made the best screens. These are really gorgeous screens and it has a lot of features that duo left out. It's the fastest. Processor out there for for for android the QUALCOMM snapdragon it's It's got wireless charging. It's not waterproof for does proof as definitely not break proof which should make you nervous because if you drop this two thousand, it's like holding a Faberge egg in your hand. If you drop it, you bought it. You know you know. I I went out and took pictures of the other day and I thought. I better, not drop this. This if this falls out of my hand, that's That's a lot of money. So I I I have to say I'm not going to recommend anybody by this crazy expensive two thousand dollars for a phone. But. And, it's not a much better phone than the four hundred or five hundred dollar phone. It's just that. I was curious about folding screens and now I have to report. I'm pleasantly surprised. Unpleasantly surprised it actually It actually is pretty surprisingly functional and it doesn't feel I thought that folding screens gotTA. Be Weird rights feel plastic ear something. Once you open it up you kind of forget it that it you know that it's a plastic or anything it's just a big screen. It's Kinda Nice to have such a big screen in your pocket. So I'm I'm I'm actually very pleased I might even keep it. I know I know I know. A lot of money and then Someday. Did iphone. Event Invitations. Go Out. No, no nobody. Got Him. Okay I. Often don't get him so I don't know. I can't tell but I don't think they went out which means. Well, it's not going to be this week for the IPHONE twelve events like probably probably not gonna be could be next week. Everybody kind of agrees is going to be in October. So it could be maybe October. What is that six? Week from Tuesday yeah. Or October thirteen week from Tuesday they'll nuts new iphones. What do you think they'll be two thousand no but I bet you be able to get him up there. Close. Yet You know you get the. iphone twelve pro Max. With All the available storage they're offering whatever that is five twelve or to fifty six. I think I think you might get it up to fifteen hundred bucks crazy. But people and these things these phones are not. You know their fragile. Which means you got to buy insurance. So add that to the cost of the really not meant to be used for more than a couple years. So. So I'm thinking. maybe we should just you know think of our phone is a phone stick with that. I'll do the. Do the crazy. Spend for weird stuff just to let you know. I don't think this folding phones going to be cheap ever because I think it's an expensive part I. think that's really the problem.
Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?
"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere. So
Apple's Beta Effect
"Have my notes, the Beta effect to talk about, and what that is is with with with going from fourteen fourteen to fourteen one, which we believe made for iphone twelve, and that's why we're not getting that. We also believe fourteen to was made before the final version of fourteen point zero and so when you update to fourteen point to. You can't use the new blood oxygen sensor APP on the Apple Watch because it requires your phone to have the version to do something with the data and so my watch on seven point zero watch os before was on fourteen two I couldn't do the oxygen singer tests I. Guess You have to accept the health disclaimers and stuff upfront right? That's probably and it saves it there too like the background. Readings where they go. So I think should say it must save on your watch before like if you're out and about without your phone, it's back into some pretty sure and then he just sinks him up. Right. Yeah. Yeah. So but it's like ekg where you've gotta you've gotTa have the version match up to support it and we need when you like started in the health app on the phone does it Does have that like. Explain urine like disclaimers like it does when you do EKG yeah I don't recall I. Mean there is an I button for information on the readout on the watch explains thing like ninety and above is pretty good. You've got kind of hunt for it to find that I think it should be like under the readout not at an disclosure button but I think. The reason is they didn't get medical sign off on the sensor because they call a wellness not medical, right? Yeah. So they have to be very careful about how they present this information and we respect about spending Keno after the show like. is kind of silly at the moment you just get this number and then you're kind of left your and devices about what to do about it but they haven't go FDA approved the weather you know the necessary. Regulatory. Accreditation they need to be able to make more defined choices like they can with Iki the cagey where if it does detect potential arrhythmia a directly sound on the screen you know go talk to your doctor about it like they don't have that same flexibility with with the blackhawks jeans and that's why in the event they would say like we aren't doing studies about blood oxygen and Covid, nineteen. The Apple Watch has a blood oxygen sensor lie they never would linked together because. The purchase self. So the the APP on the watch is very nice I. Mean we saw the animation from the event on seeing it in person it's lovely. It's blue and red. It's like blood arteries. And it as fifteen seconds to run it to do an like an act of measurement and. As you near like say three seconds it becomes it begins to form a circle of completion and it's just so delightful. How how looks You do see the last. Measurement in the APP itself. So if you go just launch it, you'll see the last say passive measurement that picked up. So you might say like when our three hours ago. And That's neat. So it's more data than than just here do or read out. Your readings to be like. Consistent enough that you think it's good because I've seen some reviews like I've been getting some resource I get ninety, six, hundred lights will have the place. So I don't really trust it. Yeah. Well. Not How to. Read. Out. That was like you're below ninety. And then I had one that was like you're you're in the ninety range than I would maybe be concerned but I've seen the rains be from ninety three to one hundred back to back tends to be pretty consistent for me. Washington Post. They had an issue where they tried different watches and bands and just could not it to work the right way have had that experience. Sensor depends on like your skin and You know. The Senate doesn't work if you've got tattoos for instance so. Different reasons and stuff like transparent basically. So it's you know. No Job for it. And if there was an issue like despite being review watched, that's the point of this talk about the experience I would mention in trust me. I mean lot with the series five hours of disinterested and reviewing because of an issue that had which I read about instead. Of. The. Battery Life So. I've been on this one fine. Yeah. A lot of people have have had shoes with seven on their existing watches having less better life than they had before I have had that and I don't know what the clear processes take restores instead of his new
Fitzpatrick handles Jaguars again, this time with Dolphins
"Happy. Trails to the Jacksonville Jaguars sometimes the magic works sometimes, it doesn't last night Ryan Fitzpatrick was. Ryan. Fits Magic. Again, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars for the sixth time in his career and he's beaten them for six different teams last night for the dolphins before that was for the Bengals, the bills Titans Texans and the jets Harvard Zone Fitzpatrick who is now played for one quarter of the NFL's teams completed.

Sell Me Your Climate Bombs
"Okay. So there are countless outdated old refrigerant tanks scattered around the country and Tim and Gabe say that the problem is you cannot just dump these tanks in the trash you wanted to take it to a dump, their knocking ticket they'll say, no, no that stuff's like hazardous material we don't want here. Material. The only thing you're allowed to dump, there is the empty tank when it's all gone. So you're really stuck it sits there on your shelf you have no use for and it's eventually going to leak through these cylinders cans into the atmosphere. If you're a professional like an auto mechanic or an H. back installer or if you're just one of those tinkers who hangs out at autozone, you might have one of these bad band canisters and. You could pay to safely dump the chemical out, but only a few places in the US will even do it and it's expensive. That's why they're canisters of this stuff just sitting in old garages rusting away and leaking leaking a greenhouse gas that is thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide and getting rid of refrigerant is one of the most important things we can do to address climate change according to a leading climate solutions organization called drawdown. which is why Tim, and Gabe have come all the way to the gas station in middle of Nowhere Illinois to meet a man in a red jeep renegade named Geoffrey. Geoffrey. Geoffrey is standing next to a two foot tall canister refrigerant that people might recognize by its common name Freon. Jim In fact recognizes the brand name Dupont igloo. So what does this is? igloo Freon twelve. So where did you What did you find the material? Jeffrey says a friend gave it to him years ago Kim asks him if he was in the Business Jeffrey no but my friend was he said he got the refrigerant because he figured maybe he'd use it in the systems of antique cars that he was thinking about rebuilding, but he never got around to it. Nineteen years. Business on shelf shop. How did you hear US oft up on my facebook one day At this out of the blue, a facebook ad popped up that said, we pay good money for old refrigerant Jeffrey. I have some of that answered the Ad, and now here we are Tim and Gabe take a sample from Geoffrey. They do a couple of calculations where they add up the weight of all the refrigerant and have Geoffrey signs informs you're signing here that your. This is your material. Now you're handing over to us. You're also a test saying that it was sourced within the United States and not the US government or a native American tribe. Correct correct. Okay. And then gables out a wad of bills and starts flowing them one by one into Jeffrey's hand. Material. So. Shop. The Money. Except for the signing of the receipt and everything, it feels almost like a drug deal cash transaction in this dusty remote middle of nowhere. Tim wouldn't tell US exactly how much changed hands but he said it was in the low hundreds and yet this is Tim Gabes legitimate business. Their company is called trade water and they make pickups like this of all sizes from a one pound can the size of a spray paint bottle tweet forty, thousand pound job they did a while back where they vacuumed the refrigerant out of an old industrial cooling system after a bit of Chitchat Tim and Gabe wrap up with Geoffrey Geoffrey tells them. If he hears anyone else with spare refrigerants, he'll send them their way. Right on. Jeffrey how is that? That was painless was. Is If you find anymore you know where to call welcome you John Here In Europe somebody's got one of the. Transaction. Takes care. Did you hear that Tim just said we'll take good care of it for you. Yeah. Well, me and my how to Save Planet Co host we're listening in on this deal. Of course, we're on facetime with them and my co host name is Hannah Elizabeth Johnson. She's a scientist and she and I asked him and Gabe about that particular comment and you said we'll take good care of this for you. Because you you aren't GonNa take good care of it. You'RE GONNA destroyed. Exactly. Probably not We, don't really. We don't really talk about that very much. Yeah. They transfer all the gas from the little tank they collect into a huge tank that looks kind of like a missile and then they drive that missile looking tank to a fancy destruction facility. Essentially, an incinerator permited hazardous waste. Rotary, King Incinerator. So you burn it we burn you burn. Your like setting it on fire and we are. Do you see gas in flames? Is that what it looks like? We don't generally watch it being burned. View, it's see to their view window flame. Yeah. A big bright flame incinerating refrigerants at this special facility actually neutralizes most of the dangerous stuff ninety, nine, point, nine, nine percent of the bad stuff doesn't go out into the atmosphere time bomb diffused, which if you're trying to address global warming, this is a fantastic thing right after all this is Tim and Gabes mission. So, why don't they tell their customers about it? Well Gabe says, their customers aren't always on board with that mission. In fact, a lot of them don't even believe global warming is real. This is A. Farce that's been pulled by the EPA or a U.. N. and so people will hang up and say I'm not going to sell to you. I'm GonNa find someone else who's GonNa use this the way it was meant to be used. Now some people are really attached to their to their refrigerant. So now generally. Advertised we're gonNA destroy because we just never know somebody that will make people uninterested in the deal. That's interesting because it seems like. Is My co host I oughta it's all over your website, right? Like your website makes it pretty clear why you're doing this and if people are finding you through facebook ads they. Already know are you on the trade water website? Yeah. So. When we do these transactions, we actually use a different name doing business. Call refrigerant finders. Go to refrigerant finders website. You will see a different framing of what we do. The homepage of the treated water website has the words reducing the world's carbon footprint in big letters huge font over background of leafy Green Fernley. The refrigerant find a website there no leaves there's no mention of climate change. It just says we buy your old refrigerant and has pictures of men in work boots carrying around rest canisters.
Huang's Law, the New Moore's Law?
"It got all lost in the scramble of other news but remember invidia bought arm and that's a pretty big deal. So to pieces about that, I let me introduce you to. Some, people see as the new Moore's law and it might explain why Invidia is doing what it's doing quoting Chris Mims in the Wall Street Journal who I believe has actually coined the term quote as chipmakers have reached the limits of atomic scale circuitry and the physics of electrons Moore's law has slowed and some say it's over but a different law potentially, no less consequential computing's next half century has arisen. I call it wings law after INVIDIA Chief Executive and Co founder Jensen Wang it describes how the silicon chips that power artificial intelligence more than double in performance. Every two years while the increase can be attributed to both hardware and software it. Steady progress makes it a unique enabler of everything from autonomous cars, trucks, and ships to the face voice and recognition in our personal gadgets between November twenty twelve and may performance of nvidia chips increased three hundred and seventeen times for an important class of a calculation says Bill Daley chief scientists and Senior Vice President of research at Nvidia on average in other words, the performance of these chips more than doubled every year a rate of progress that makes Moore's law pale in comparison and quote. And then also from the Journal, a portrait of Jensen Wang and his founding and stewardship of Invidia as the company has. Just exploded in all sorts of ways. In videos market value has soared to three hundred and nineteen point, eight billion dollars surpassing Intel's valuation of two hundred and fourteen point five, billion dollars even though INVIDIA had ten point nine, two, billion in annual sales in its latest fiscal year compared with seventy one, point nine, seven, billion for Intel. Videos bet on some of the hottest fields, INTECH video gaming and artificial intelligence have fueled investor enthusiasm. While Intel has stumbled with some of its most advanced chips, it's all a long way from nineteen ninety-three when Mr Huang. Dreamed up in video on his thirtieth birthday at a Denny's in San Jose California with two like minded engineers they bet on a future where consumers demanded better computer graphics, which would require specialized high performance hardware that wasn't available at the time and
Prepare for the ‘iPhone 12 mini,’ suggest recent leaks
"Well, according to. Apple, accurate leaker and twitter naming artists love to dream. What a guy. He's a poet he's a philosopher he's also an apple leaker. He says that apple used the name iphone twelve mini for the smallest of four models coming this year. We know the other ones will be called the iphone, twelve, twelve pro and twelve pro Max. The first apple mini product was the ipod mini I remember that little that little guy that little diminutive gadget. Two, thousand four what a cute little device that was breaks in the year after Apple. Introduced the Mac mini which has been updated a few times and then the most recent mini line apple added was the IPAD mini in two thousand twelve a whole cute lineup of mini products. Adding an iphone mini would help unify. Lineup with the IPAD. The naming convention makes lot of sense to although it would add a degree of confusion since the mini would pack a screen that's larger than the iphone se. But the is known for having the smallest display. That's I mean at least in tech circles with normal people maybe not but people realize it's kind of like its own separate thing. So will likely show off the IPHONE wind up sometime next month. We talked about that. If they do love to dream is right. Here's how it's going to hear how here's how it's going to go down.

Thousands of workers are literally stuck at sea
"The CEOS of some of the largest consumer products, companies, Unilever procter, and Gamble Johnson and Johnson are weighing in on what they say is a question of Human Rights on the high seas because of Corona virus measures some three, hundred thousand people who work on commercial vessels you know the kind that carry food and Health, and hygiene products among other things are stuck on their ships unable to leave governments around the world of closed ports, borders, and other travel facilities that allow crew changes and not being able to change crews on these ships is a problem for the health and safety of workers, as well as a pretty good way to clog up supply chains from Washington marketplace's Scott Tong, reports typically commercial ship workers signed contracts of six or ten or twelve months, and when that's up the ship swapped crews at the next port.

CarMax profit, revenue rise above expectations
"CARMAX, second quarter profits and revenue came in much higher than expected. And the last time I checked the stock. It was down twelve percent. I was surprised by this because this was a really good quarter for Carmax I didn't see anything in their guidance to indicate that the next three to six months is going to be particularly perilous. Yeah I was also surprised they beat expectations revenue was up three point three, percent five, point three, seven, billion earnings were up percent last quarter they had implemented cost savings they had furloughed fifteen thousand workers, the CEO Bill. Nash Reduced Salary by fifty percent, they stopped new store openings like you said Chris this this quarter was really good for them. Their sales had bounced back by. Around June, we saw revenue growth, they're hiring seven, hundred, fifty people at their customer experience center they're planning to open stores. Again, the stock is up twenty one percent since the beginning of the year. So I don't know if it's more trying to temper expectations for the future, but it was a solid quarter for them. We've certainly seen that with other companies in other industries where. The come out with, results. They are somewhere on the spectrum of good to great but not. Off John Dropping perfect. And we see a little bit of a off just because you're to date the stock is doing well. I Dunno Carmax. I've the last vehicle. I bought was from Carmax. A couple of years ago had a very good experience. I would absolutely go back there again because I feel like they have. I don't want to say they have solved a pain point, but they have certainly made a pain point a lot less painful and I'm referring to the process of buying a car which for for most people, it's just trans. Actually we just want the car that we want and please don't make me go through the whole haggling Kabuki theatre thing because that's just awful. Yeah I have never bought a car I. Don't have a driver's license, but I will say I was I was interested in. How, they might have done in the last recession. So you can see if there are people who are listening economic service. If you look at the demand curve for normal products as income increases the demand for a product increases but with inferior goods are inferior products they do well in a recession because as income decreases demand for this product increases, and since Carmax maxell eighty, five percent of their revenue is used cars. It seems likely that they would be considered an inferior product. So if we see a recession in the future, they would be a company that would do well, and so I looked at. How they did in the last recession, and if you look at the stock from March twenty, two, thousand, eight to September Twenty fifteen, it returned two hundred, four percent compared to fifty percent for the S. and P. Five hundred. So I think looking forward and thinking long term about Carmax if you're thinking about the impacts, the long-term recession impacts of covid nineteen, this might be an interesting to think thing to think about is those inferior products versus those normalized product particularly in urban areas where you're a for people who have the means they're probably to be spending less time getting on subways if they can avoid it. I gotta say inferior goods as a categorization just sounds pejorative that sounds like something that the new auto dealers of America came up with yeah. It's not the nicest term and when you study, they'll say a bus is considered an inferior to car planes kind of insulting. But that is the technical economic term

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.
How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the
Market Update with Alex Saunders, Nuggets News
"We just recently had bitcoin cross twelve, thousand dollars it ran up you know to to grand over the course of a weekend pretty much. While big money was asleep in, you know out on their yachts. And then it came crashing back fourteen hundred dollars in five minutes who's responsible for these kinds of moves behind the scenes you've been around forever. Can you give us any kind of insight into why bitcoin can be you know more exciting than ever pay pals on board US banks have been cleared to get on board why would there be a fourteen hundred dollar price crash in five minutes? So. As you say up in which the charts like daily, since two, thousand, twelve and. Becomes always been volatile because it it's hard to like get specific value and it's always despite some sentiment narratives. But now we've got these hundred x leverage which dominates trading in markets in volume and a lot of other things are getting their prospect. David from from mix in the lock. So I really try to particularly begin did not even look at that price m a lot of people always say that and not to worry about it but honestly that number on the screen now that we're getting from these hundred exchanges is just not relative. So if you arrive with negotiating OTC you, as you say, we'd probably be negotiating around eleven thousand dollars somewhere in the middle, but we're not wired about the day-to-day process if I'm going to buy million dollars of becoming a few on the weekend and it feels funny. Way Not rookie out Monday in on paying twenty percent less negotiating on seven I average price or something like that and that's why people really need to think about it because these big wild and try it is that you know the K levels that everybody's watching they know everyone stops even some of the exchanges that had against their own customers or whatever. So they can push the crossed this level of volume in liquidities inner on weekends where we've seen a lot of this stuff. You low time it gets pushed up on the weekend, and then he gets sort of smashed back down by Monday morning and it's just these guys. They can push markets around. So Tokyo don't worry about it too much. Yeah outlets, good advice and I think these derivatives exchanges is probably the biggest difference between this bull run and the last one. In fact, the very end of the two thousand seventeen bull run is when bitcoin was launched on Sami futures and bit. Mex- came to live like the literally the day of that was the top of the market. So with these with the huge money being able to make profit in both directions and manipulate things almost in three. D.. As opposed to two D now is holding dead or is that still going to be a profitable strategy for people that are just trying to get into crypto? Absolutely holding is still the most profitable strategy in Atto Ole as I really think you should just be dollar cost averaging into to join the May I'm a huge belaboring Theorem as well, but I guess that's up to you whatever ye locked. But over time these markets growing to an enormous market cap and when you zoom out, it's almost slightly SOCK on as low shots that we look at because of the exponential growth and people just. Tied down in the Diet a diet. All should aboard here or crippled he. Never, GonNa beat the bottom never gonna peak the top and you're getting get shaken outy few wiles. Enjoy the ride, use it to your advantage. You know set some low beads exchange, review the computer. When we have these thousand crash, you know just by a little bit extra from adult cost averaging stack because over time the wires cannot manipulate the process. It's it's going up into the rot as long as we continue to grow, which is going to grow into the trillions of dollars among cap for Bitcoin for these other leading particles. So use that. To your advantage Derby August football, even nowadays fustrating. one-sided caught a thought that we've got to leverage bitcoin people. I'm going to speculate outside D two, thousand, seventeen. That's something that was seeking is GonNa play out but then we saw excited like FDA at high leverage on these outs. So it was like a guy will allow people to. Try to outs on one hundred times leverage will I guess of course, the gravy and you might afford you in Allah and that sort of Chinese and now it's like twenty seventeen on steroids I think he's really going on honestly think that we're about to say all the robinhood tried his diabetes detritus. Most. Countries than we sold, the nasdaq-listed Company mockery strategy put money to bitcoin notes. It's to be I and now wants to be lost. We've seen that now with legendary invest poultry to giants I think we're GONNA say we'd State actors like governments or Central Bank somebody's going to be first and then that he's GonNa, stop the peaceful run lost
Is Stainless Steel Really Stainless?
"Bathroom, sinks and kitchen appliances to New York's Chrysler building, and the Saint Louis. Gateway. Arch. The world sometimes seems like it's covered in stainless steel. And why not the material is not only sturdy and versatile, but also stainless as the name implies, but is it really impossible to stain stainless steel? Stainless steel is a family of materials that gets its handle from corrosion and oxidation resistant properties that protect it from rust and unsightly botches. Generally, these steals our mixture of iron end at least ten point, five percent chromium sometimes rounded to eleven percent by engineers. When exposed to oxygen and moisture a for instance, when a stainless steel pan is nick door dinged chromium is an element that produces thin oxide film, the coats the product. This self repairing feature of stainless steel ensures the object will always look smooth and shiny. Various European American metallurgists claim to have invented. This wonders material. A We do know that Croup ironworks in Germany created an acid resistant steel as early as nineteen eight, it was used for the hell of a yacht. To other German researchers discovered the relationship between chromium content and corrosion resistance that metal containing at least ten point five percent chromium had a greater resistance to corrosion. Meanwhile American. elwood Haynes patented one type of stainless steel precursor in nine eleven and English researcher. Harry brearley developed a similar material around the same time. After a four year dustup in which hanes successfully opposed brearley's attempt to patent his version of the steel, the to pooled resources to market their wares as the American stainless steel. Company. These and other stainless bells found their way into cutlery airplane parts, Gulf clubs, and Adams almost immediately. But not all stainless steel is created equal. There are four main types of stainless steel classified by structure and composition. The most common variety is static sixty, five percent of the stainless steel produced. All's in this category. A static steals can be found in products ranging from cutlery and cookware to automotive trim and industrial applications. Immaterial pains at least sixteen percent chromium no more than zero point one, five percent carbon and usually includes nickel or manganese for added their ability. Meanwhile. For riddick stainless steels contain up to twenty seven percent chromium often as well as aluminum or titanium, but if little or no nickel. means that while these materials are highly resistant to Croatian, they're less durable than their austin cousins. For riddick steals are more affordable than Austin attic varieties and are commonly used in Mufflers, exhaust, systems kitchen counters, and sinks. Then we have Martin's stainless steels which are less corrosion resistant than the first two types, but are noted for their extreme strength and durability. Of the material contains twelve fourteen percent chromium along with small amounts of Molybdenum and carbon. These steals also contain little to no nickel less than two percent. Martin's stainless steels are magnetic and are often used in products where this feature's useful like a kitchen back splash to which spice rack or other metal object can be attached without using fasteners. A finally duplex stainless steels combined the benefits of Austin night and fair right to provide enhanced decay resistance and beefed up strength and durability. metallurgists typically look to create a mix that's half Austin and half foretich. The result is material that features more chromium and less nickel than his found in Pure Austin at steals about twenty to twenty, five percent chromium and five percent nickel as well as a high level of Molybdenum. These deals are primarily used in chemical plants and piping applications. You may have noticed our use of the term resistant when referring to these stainless steels capacity for avoiding blemishes. So is the material just stain resistant or completely stain proof? And despite the hardy protection that it affords users, stainless steel is more stain less and stainless in other words while the material is highly resistant to discoloration blemishes and other imperfections, it's not completely impenetrable. Just look at the Gateway Arch, which is starting to show its age with breast and K after five decades of welcoming tourists to saint. Louis. The protective layer of film covering a stainless steel object can break down over time leading to corrosion and pitting. In addition compounds like chloride, hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide often caused the film to stress and crack. The level of rest resistance provided by a particular steel depends largely on the materials used to create it the more chromium, the more corrosion protection. The sturdier stainless steels also feature at least eight percent nickel, which provides further defense against tarnish. Some products are tagged with numbers indicating their proportions of chromium and nickel. For instance, eighteen over ten flatware is sold at a premium because it has eighteen percent chromium and ten percent nickel content providing greater protection against corrosion than ordinary flatware. For household users it's important to understand that many metals advertised a stainless steel are actually stainless steel played it. The plate is corrosion resistant, but is susceptible to damage if cut or scratched deep enough to reach the. Material because the plates can also wear off over time, buyers should clarify whether a particular product is made completely of stainless steel or simply plated. Whether played it or not. You're stainless steel appliances and other products need to be cleaned. Most of the time good old fashioned soap and water will do the trick for tougher stains. Professionals recommend variety of household remedies. A couple of dabs of olive oil or window cleaner can remove most of those pesky fingerprints and smudges while white or cider vinegar will restore shine. A don't use steel wool pads or harsh cleaning powders as they'll scratched surface. If you need to remove burnt on food from stainless steel pan, let it soak in warm water and then clean it with baking soda and Gentle Nylon or plant based scouring pad.
Kids on the Case
"Always. Just naturally curious like I've been a natural investigator, my entire life. This is Jessica Maple back in two thousand eleven. She was finishing sixth grade and starting to make plans for her perfect summer and what she really wanted to do was go to a policy debate camp, and then my mother said Hey Jessica I just got an email from the school and the county is going to have a junior district attorney camp. Jessica was annoyed that her mother assumed that district attorney camp would be anything like policy debate camp. She was twelve and I'm just like mom I'm not into this type of stuff. So I don't WanNa go and she's like will you're going anyway so Upset and Soleil went that first day. For Here's District Attorney Paul Howard has led camps for Atlanta's middle school students. Campers don't swim or canoe or make friendship bracelets. They spend their days, a police stations and observing criminal trials. They have to abide by the junior da Creed on the first day of camp, each camper is a shoot a uniform. We had this giant oversized kind of blazer was a police badge. We were khaki pants and Paulo's. So we are all matching and you know we had the district attorney come in and then some of the attorneys that he works with and they're saying, hey, everybody welcome to junior district attorney camp, and at the end of this camp, you guys are GonNa be like, district. Attorney's. Jessica loved it everything about did every day after her camp? Her mother would pick her up and Jessica would tell her who she met and what she learned. But one day she got in the car and her mother was upset and then she explained to me that someone broke into her grandmother's house and we don't know who did it. They took a lot of things and so she was really upset because that's actually where she grew up. She held a lot of memories there and it just was really upsetting to her because. It's just having someone invade a space that special to you is very emotional. When Jessica's great grandmother passed away years earlier, the family kept her house in the small town of Fitzgerald Georgia exactly how she'd left it. Until someone broke in and took everything her dining room set was gone her washer and Dryer was gone her sofa was gone. Somebody took her like Crystal Vases They took her record console the bedroom sets were gone. It was pretty empty. It just looked like somebody came in and moved out her washer and Dryer Washer and China. Yes and the oven too. Jessica says the police officer told her mother the odds of finding the person or people who did this weren't good. He sort of insinuated the family was at fault somehow, and the police officer was just like, did you guys give anybody a key because it just looks like somebody had a key because there's no force points of entry or anything, and it just seems like. That's the only thing that happened here. After. The police left Jessica and her mother stayed behind giving everything another look I actually went around the side of the house where the garage was and by the garage door windows, there were three little fingerprints I remember junior da camp was like, oh fingerprints this is definitely some evidence. So we can send this off to the guy and then we can find whoever broke into my grandmother's house. The I is the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Jessica's mother called the police and asked them to come back to have a look at fingerprints. And so I show that to them and they were just like That's not enough. We need at least like you know seven fingerprints. Entirely too long. And at this point you were thinking. I don't think that I can count on the police to solve this crime it's up to me. Oh Yeah. I was just like, okay. I have the tools and the knowledge on how to solve this crime. So now we're going to investigate this and figure out who did this because I'm pretty unhappy. My mother was upset my dad's upset. And I just want to get to the bottom of this. Did you say to your mother at any point don't worry. I've got this I'm on it. Yes I told her mom I'm going to figure this out and we're going to figure out who did this because justice needs to be served. Jessica began her investigation.

"This week. We've been taking a look at the biggest stories to unfold this year and seeing how things have progressed heading into twenty twenty because let's face it to most of US event happens we ingest it. We go Wow we move on but when these events happen to you it's not that simple things do not wrap themselves up in a twenty four hour news cycle a lot of these stories linger and reverberate with lots and lots of people in two American cities are still trying to work through the same day from earlier this year. The same twelve hours. In fact perhaps the worst twelve hours of twenty nine thousand nine interrupt regular regular programming to bring you breaking news out of Texas reports of a mass shooting at the Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso. Police say several people have been killed. It all began on August August stirred at one zero nine. PM Central Time as a man walked across parking lot at Walmart in El Paso Texas carrying a rifle and forty say twenty one year old. Patrick Crusius was armed with assault style rifle at authorities. Believe based on what they've read and what they've heard from him he was there to shoot as many Mexicans as possible when it was all over. Twenty two people were dead more were injured in the suspect calmly coldly at surrendered to police police. But that day wasn't over not to the people up in Dayton Ohio who are in a downtown Nightlife district at one zero five. AM The costs for help coming in. Just after one Sunday morning people running for their lives down now look like the alleged shooter identified as twenty four year old connor. Stephen Betts killed by police who say he wore body armor and a face mask carrying an AK style rifle and multiple high capacity magazines. This time it was nine people killed and seventeen injured. The insane thing here was that all let carnage was carried out in thirty two seconds. Think about that thirty two seconds from the first gunshot to shoot her down so today in the short episode the last of our week long series series. I WANNA revisit these moments but also get a sense of the purpose of what comes next because there are parts of this story that just did not come out in real time. We're GONNA hear from some of those voices today. I WanNa start with someone who knows El Paso as well as anyone of ABC News. Jim Shoals works out of our Dallas Bureau. Jim You're actually from El Paso I am from El Paso Texas. I grew up Ma was raised went to high school and college. My Grandmother The House that she grew up and was his two blocks away from this Walmart I saw star wars at this mall in nineteen seventy seven So this was very familiar territory to me also then in in your eyes. How did this unfold well? I was It was just a regular Saturday. I was at the gym with my son. And we you know I got the recall that there was a possible some sort of shooting an apparent shooting in El Paso Texas and being from there. Of course I immediately get on the phone and Start Making calls roles and sure enough to head to the mall area. If you're heading out looking for a loved one head to macarthur school middle school that's the affiliate down there was not really On it and They it became clear that this was something more serious that you can see the chaos unfolding as people quickly trying to evacuate Seila Vista Mall with their hands above their heads and El Paso police other swat team members with long guns in their hand. People are being escorted out. It's a nine hour drive a ten hour. Drive from Dallas but I caught a flight with my correspondent and so Through at the airport. You know you're getting dribbles about you know what's happening in an actually. This actually unfolded relatively quick so we were able to kind of figure out in a hurry that this was serious and our listeners. Might not know I mean you are often on the front lines of ABC's breaking news coverage like you've been to too many scenes like this so then what's it like when you show up in your hometown. Yes sadly from Aurora to Virginia in Your Tech to Las Vegas I this is a call that I frequently get and it's a call dread but Once you do and and it's miniature hometown it does get your attention once you do kind of hit the ground you know everything is familiar you. That's you know that's the place where you as a kid. Did you used to go for Burgers and the thing that did strike me and then what was different at this scene is there. Weren't that many people who are look who are lingering and and trying to get a better view you know because it was so late and there really. Weren't that many people outside the only place to ask questions worst where we were. Were the press word so These three women actually came up to us. They started speaking Spanish. As as most people in El Paso do but but it it became clear to me that they were from Mexico and they were Mexican nationals so One of them actually pulled out their phone and had asked if she had seen if I had seen her husband husband. I told her I had not and I directed her. There was a reunification center that we had heard about And I told her where the hospitals were and she said that she had been to all these locations but No one could help her So I asked her I said well why did you come back here. And she said well I. I can't can't find him but I can see that. His phone is pinging fifty yards away from us here and so she showed it to me and at that point your heart just sinks You look for the appropriate thing to say And and as these things can be their or chaotic and so I just mentioned to maybe you know in the in this in a hurry to get out. He dropped his phone. That's that's pretty common and She said well I thought of that too but she also showed me his. I watch that was ping right next to the phone. So at that point.

"So the next one is from nineteen ninety eight and this is a box of general mills. Major league grand slams a baseball. Flavored cereal, which I believe should be a role model for a lot of license cereals going forward because it doesn't vary. So thing to make it more interesting than the bland a puffs and marshmallows, or, and marshmallows that we see for most licensed cereals. But from the star, this is the exact same formula. I just described, but the corn pups. Somewhere between a puff and a pop is what I said. The corn pops. Fears have these red lines on them to make them look. Exactly like baseball's. And I just want all today's marketers to know that all you need to do to really appeal to people is draw some lines on things making more interesting and make the box holographic, and you'll have a Sierra, let's far more memorable than the sort of Super, Mario cereals, and the, the Moana cereals of the world. Okay. I did save the best for last as well. This is a box of Honey. Nut Cheerios from inspect the label real quick nineteen ninety five so it's got a very old styling of buzz, the be on very cool.

You know, maybe it's not a bad thing around the house for any incapable indulgence, but I just overall I feel like if you're not sure religiously committed to that. It's probably not worth. Agreed. Agreed. So far last segment. Dan, you have some boxes, some classic so classic serial boxes. Yeah, this is really fun one. So my friend, and sort of constant reference, here on the show gave sake of cereal time some years back. He had his giant cereal box collection. If you don't know the most impressive that I've ever seen. And at one point, he just randomly offered to mail me, some doubles that he has. And I was surprised with how many actually sent me it was probably like over fifty. And I always wanted to do something about them for my blog, and I did post about them once, but I really wanted to take it to the next level, and describe some of these boxes that I think are really cool, and we'll upload some scans on our Twitter, so you can check those out as soon as you're done listening to this, and really experienced the full visceral connection. But yeah, I have three here today, and let me go through them, real quick, and sort of reverse chronological order on the first one, we have here is fairly recent from twenty thirteen. It is cinnamon pop cereal from Kellogg's. What's interesting about this one is that in Canada where this box is from pops. The brand is much different. We're here in the states. We have these sort of these limp, popcorn kernels in Canada, their actual, crunchies, fears, and well, I can't say one is objectively better than other. I think this is a really nice flavoring of it. But the real thing that's intriguing about this box. It's the back of it. It has a comic on it that if feels really wholesome that it takes turn. It's got two mascots got a corn pop and a cinnamon stick. And I thought it was going to be like, apple jacks. But in reality, these two are looking at the clouds on the ground and the cinema six says 'cause look like many things and the corn pop who I would say looks a lot like pacman wearing gym shorts says looks at a fish and the cloud is a fish. I wish when cinnamon says that's dog pushing a kid on a swing. The cloud indeed does look like that. But at this point pop man is like they looks like a foot any very happy. And then. Cinnamon lying right next to him, just gets absolutely stomped on by giant hairy foot with the effective swam. And the look on this corn pops face is absolutely mortifying is just a withered of corn pop. And you can literally see bits of his friend crumbs around him on top of him. And I just can't believe that this is like this is like peak twenty nine hundred Twitter humor on a kid cereal box five years, six years ago. So impressed by that one. What else we got?.

"Pretty good. They're really good to set on your coffee table. Again, and pluck one whenever you get some bad news and just in mmediately need to swallow it down. I guess, I because these are little, unless this is Joe dressing room. I don't think you can have a giant bowl of after blonde. These avail, what arms reach. It really entertains dinner parties. I'll say that's why we're talking about their flavor. These things are shaped a lot like those fiber, one brownies, but they taste a heck of a lot better. They've got the same moist. Only slightly gritty texture with a bunch of marshmallows, and bedded in it. It's kind of strange balance of bland, and sweet with the dove versus the marshmallow, but I think the icing on it really brings together. And if they ever come out with these in a size that is not, I guess, for like a kindergarten classroom and I'd recommend most people pick them up for him. Yeah, it is just a ludicrous ludicrous about of. Ludicrous about a blonde. I mean, even that's enough blonde dese where you could get to a point where you're like I've gotta tournament life around, but I'm holding off until I finish this huge box of blonde that I bought because there's just so many of them. Plant, you know, sort of measure time in increments of one, crate of marshmallow blonde easier -ticipant that'll be about three months. So Christmas, just to crates. What's her next to cereal here? Okay. So if we got a real serial here, I don't know if you've got a chance to try them yet, but they're blueberry Cheerios. You know, I haven't honestly the the. I like Cheerios overall, but the I don't I just don't find exciting enough. It kinda goes back to that. I know lack of like, no new tooling. You know that's really get as excited about new flavors idea about, you know, new textures guess. Well, then, again, you take a, a deviation there and say, what, what makes you excited about new checks flavors Cheerios, has okay? That's absolutely fair. I would say that new checks flavors are often. Accompanied by new textures. I would say, like like I would point to like, you know, your Graham checks, for example, your even the Honey nut checks had like some sugar tartar is that acceptable is right. So unappealing, but that, that sort of idea, the one exception was the what's the curious actually did one on cereal time it was like a. Sort of like crunch around crun-. Yeah. There it goes, I might actually looks pretty good, pretty solid. I didn't joy that one. But I also enjoyed blueberry Cheerios, because I have been very sad ever since. Lou berry toast crunch left shelves, which is really the second time after it inherited the tiny toast legacy, which was tragically short lived. But blueberry Cheerios, it's the closest thing you can get two blueberry, toast crunch being back on shelves. It's got less of that, pillowy powdered coating, but kind of a better base in my opinion, because the cheerio basis is really hardy and can be platforms off, really. Well, so if if if strawberry Cheerios comeback the summer, I recommend pairing the two because it will still be better than berry. Berry Cheerios that that's the so there's the blueberry, the same sort of sickly sweet pseudo. Woo that we come. To start from like Lou, berry, Muffin tops, and the like it's sort of a hybrid of that falseness and the really genuineness because I feel like with genuine blueberry flavor. It doesn't always come across very strongly. So appreciate the nod to artificial. They can really give it the pop of new exposure innocence. Now, I think are less areo here is fascinating. It is, is sort of a, I Facebook served up to me. So that's how I mean face with Scott. My number pretty bad. It's called magic spoon. And I always want to be careful about, you know, overselling the health benefits of any sort of individual serial, no matter what it is folks. I will always submit that cereal is not a health food. It really folks does not matter. There's, there's very little even you're like most hardcore grape nuts are like not an everyday. Probably, but magic spoon is advertised out, just hey, how they advertise advertises high protein twelve grams of protein, every bowl low carb three net carves per.

"We have Kellogg's releasing a new vanilla almond raisin bran crunch. So they got little almond slivers continuing the legacy of EPA, strawberries, and Brin crunch as well as raising brain with bananas, found solicitous, don't think I'll buy not fun enough. Well, if you want fund the last one on the list is f why released garbage pail kids cereal, with Barth bite marshmallows? So it's a sort of fruity Rice, Krispies mixed with these little little bits, that are mental like bar, but they're really just pill shaped, marshmallows really mandating go with an oatmeal here, but and reaction Myer action is this. I can't believe I keep getting excited for these licensed aerials e stands for full you every time, it's just an easy ten dollars. They get on. Deserve it. We have also missed out on a lot of reviews while we've been absent, one of we, we got piling up in our to review decorative been. Well, not this one out quick, because I know you're probably not here for it. It is chocolate, cupcake pop tarts. You had a problem fine. Have to talk about darts a legally mandated. It's in our extensive multi Bauge contract. Gets talk about tarts you get more of the inheritance, though. So at all. Okay. So these chocolate cupcake copters are a new flavor that are hitting shelves alongside returning hesitate to say favorite because I know no one really liked it. Confetti cupcake pop tarts, which really taste like fun Venny, or perhaps a grocery store bakery, cupcake. But to go back to the more interesting, one of the two, I got to try to a cupcake pop tarts, and I think really great because if it like the old saying goes, if it looks like a hostess cupcake and it microwaves like a hostess cupcake and it spills crumbs all over my coffee table, a hostess cupcake. It's probably the same concept because he's clearly knocked off in the sense that they have that exact same white swirl as a hostess cupcake, as well as the flavor pretty much taken down to a t it's very fudgy. It's very great. If you look. And sort of the pop tarts, pantheon. There are a lot of flavors that take this approach of chocolate and something white flavored. That's nila or sugar. But so I thought this would be similar to the hot fudge sundae or the chocolate vanilla cream. But in reality, these are more like, chuckle mellow, pop tarts, which came out around Christmas time while back target exclusive and are sorely missed and sorely underrated sunglass represented here. Again. Excellent. I'm glad that you had some good pop tarts. Can we talk about serial? Well, one more stage let's sort of an more back. Okay.

"Officially branded the ice cream drumstick the waffle cone, and the sort of dips top, but it is coming in to new flavors as well. You have classic vanilla and mint chocolate. And when you look at both these cereals, I'm a bit more hesitant about them because if you ever had did you ever have ice cream cone cereal? I'm familiar with it. I don't know if I ever had it myself. So that was a general mills cereal as well. That actually use these conical pieces to really get that sense of often and really just pure Hugh in the roof of the mouth of flavor. Whereas these two new drumstick cereals are mishmash of existing pieces, so you have these golden gram type pieces acting as a cone you have, what looks at essentially like cocoa puffs being the the chocolate. And then in each one there. A disc as well that you will probably recognize that shape from thin mint cereal. The general mills also did. But one of them is meant an assuming the other one is. I couldn't tell you to this more cone. I, I think is an interesting Nestle and general mills teaming up to two partnership. That's great to see that kind of collaboration offer a good trend right now, because you had the sour patch kids, the host of cereals, Charlie different cookies that is doing to. And this would feel sort of like a direct look at the, the multiple cold stone creamery flavors. I can express a frustration with all these I, especially with the drumstick I feel like a lot of these cereals would be improved by, I don't know what you'd call it the cereal business, but, like less generic tooling on these pieces you mentioned in the article, and it's hard to tell exactly from the picture, what we're dealing with here, but the ice cream like the there's in here that looks like an ice cream cone, nothing in here. Looks like drumstick, particularly, and I think that's kind of a shame. And they really, they really tease you to with the sort of chocolate dipped waffle cone bowl on the box cow, which I have to see him not included inside and it forces you to know go steal your own from local ice cream. Shop was to me that is. Folks, that's a legal. We have expressed it to you many times, you can't just steal at crafting. Actually, in the code of conduct on my site.
