When these three year. Old photos of contestant rachel kirk canal at an old south antebellum themed college party.

Cherokee Nation chief tells Jeep to rename its SUVs
"This is gonna be a big story nationally but also locally the principal chief of the cherokee nation has asked jeep to stop using the tribes names on all of its the deep grand cherokee sells like crazy. I think it's actually gps bestselling model. If i'm not mistaken but the company has sold suv's under the cherokee brand name for about forty five years. Now here is that t- talking about this today in two hundred. Twenty one of the action. I saying categorically that i think is wrong to use our name who peddle a response to this. Jeep said it's vehicle names have been carefully chosen and nurtured over the years to honor and celebrate native american people for their nobility prowess in pride gps. That is now more than ever committed to a respectable and open dialogue. But the chief said he couldn't really see any sort of rain underwood's it would be acceptable for deep to continue using his tribes name on its vehicles for most people tribes don't seem real In terms of the they're experiencing something in history and naming something after something in history probably doesn't feel too bad particularly if it engenders some strong positive emotions. But i think in this year two thousand twenty one we ought to be talking about the fact that tribes are still here were vibrant. We do a great deal for people in our communities and our names means something and they've been here a lot longer than the jeep company and other corporations that have seized are named for profit. Is there some way to keep could use that name that you'd be fine with it whether it's the way that they could use the name that i would be fine with it. It certainly doesn't honor by using that name and and it will surely never intended to.
New York Governor Cuomo Should Resign or Be Impeached Over Covid Scandal
"Finally allowed to talk about the fact that Andrew cuomo is a garbage governor. Who got a lot of people killed with bad policy. In fact there's a piece in the week today. By ryan cooper titled resign andrew cuomo. He points out that his administration concealed data about kroger's cases in nursing homes reportedly for fear of federal prosecution stories of his vitriolic abuse and threats directed at other democratic. new york. Politicians are coming out yet even all that is only the start of deadly corrupting competence. So in keeping with judging by his by his results cuomo should resign immediately and free new york state from his dismal. Misrule says ryan cooper of the week and not at the nursing home scandal has been bubbling for nearly a year. Now it starts with cuomo's inexplicable decision back in march two thousand twenty two order nursing homes to accept recovering covid nineteen patients even if they were still testing positive a recent. Ap investigation found that. At least nine thousand recovering patients were sent back to nursing homes and long term care facilities a number that is forty percent larger than his administration had previously admitted is unquestionably worsened. The pandemic as it ripped through new york's elderly population. that's not the only number cuomo fudged nursing homes new york attorney general letitia. James investigated situation found that his people may have under counted the number of deaths associated with nursing homes by fifty percent cuomo. Then instead of the eighty five hundred said they'd been reporting. The true number was over. Fifteen thousand about a third of the state's deaths and then of course in your post reported comments from cuomo's top aide. Melissa rosa seemingly admitted that they deliberately faked the numbers as part of a cover up. His officials froze fear. The truth is going to be used against us. By federal prosecutors ran cooper says cuomo bungled the pandemic basically from the jump. The new york city metro got hammered with the worst break in the country. In the following months cuomo's compulsive bullying and control. Habits gradually drove an exodus of public health professionals from the state government including the state's health department director of bureau of communicable disease control as medical director for uppity myalgia in the state epidemiologist and then his micromanagement tangled up the early stages of the state's vaccine rollout he throughout the plan. The state health department had worked up over months substituting his own he put he put in place strict requirements that only people who qualified to get shots but then added threats of punishment for organizations that didn't distribute their shots fast enough and the result was chronic delays. His bottom line is this. Cuomo has been a garbage governor in the media. Didn't just cover for him. They featured him. He was the greatest government in america. Meanwhile ron santa's greatest villain. In america down in florida with the number two populations seniors in america by percentage after main which has seven people.
Be Careful What You Say In A Job Interview
"Okay you and what have you got on deck this week. Well kim. i wanted to talk about the job interview. Were coming up to the end of february. This is typically You know usually a busier hiring season. You know people usually. They're going to let employees go. That's sort happens kind of late. November you close to close enough to the end of the year but not so close that it sort of falls in that christmas vacation range that sort of almost like a blackout period for terminations and It sort of carries over into the beginning of january and then by february usually kinda companies are looking at at hiring. So i've been chatting with a lot of people lately about Employment agreements and reviewing contracts for for new job offers. And it occurred to me that you know a chattanooga boat job interviews and do's and don'ts for employers employees might not be such a bad idea yeah and you know what. It's the same over here too. I think You know for us. It's after chinese new year when people either have resigned and are looking for work over there are openings in a company for for that year and we have just finished the chinese new year. So i think this is very topical for this part of the world as well perfect. Okay well i mean you know the first thing in the application process itself your cv right. Let's make sure your c vs them to date and that it accurately reflects your experience and you know that may sound like stating the obvious camp. But you'd be surprised. The number of employees that that embellish their accomplishments or skill sets Or or outright lie I came across a survey conducted by check stor There are a prominent reference checking company in the us and according to a survey that they did in in two thousand twenty. Apparently seventy eight percent of candidates admit that they have or they would consider misrepresenting themselves on their job applications so You know not an insignificant amount of people that were to come right out and say sure. I'm i'm prepared to lie on a on a job application. I feel like there must be a lot of gray area here. I mean obviously you cannot make a declared of statement that is false which is lying but i assume there is a lot of embellishment on the on the cv in just ways that might be hard to detect or might be hard to prove. But they're just sort of slight little improvements. That might be made here or there. That are not entirely false but are not entirely true. Either and i think that's probably really hard to kind of police. Yeah i mean you're absolutely right. It's always the gray area. That's gonna be be tricky to monitor You know where you have to be careful as an employee is something that is a complete and utter fiction. You know maybe a particular academic credential that you don't actually possess would be good example and then another one that often gets employees into trouble is if they've been or were fired from a previous employer and then during the job interview. The new perspective employer asks them. You know well. Hey why are you here what you know what happened with his previous position. Why did you leave And employees are often very very hesitant to say something to the effect of. Well i i you know i left because i got fired Or i left. Because i you know i stole something from my employer. Were regardless of the circumstances were even if it was just You know a simple downsizing that really had nothing to do with the employee's performance even in those situations You know often. An employee is is concerned about saying i got fired and how that might come across so they lie and they say something like yeah you know it just. It wasn't a good fit or it was the right time for me to leave. And that's a problem cam because if the employer were to find out after the fact that you were fired and they had relied on your word effectively that you know you left under under more pleasant amicable circumstances. I mean that could be cause for for discharge in terms of getting rid of you after. They've hired you. Yeah you and i mean you know this area well. How often do employers perspective employers. Do these background checks because in the course of my career I feel like they are done a lot now. I'm become more senior sort of in the industry but previously. It seemed like the employer didn't do any background checks

Philadelphia Eagles agree to trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts
"So carson wentz traded to the colts again. We knew the colts were looking for a vet. We knew that the eagles were looking to move carson wentz. Whether you know you think that's wednesdays fall and the eagles thinking he's just not good whether you think has jalen hurts and the fact that they feel like he's promising young rookie who who pushed the vet out or whether you feel like. They're going to draft another rookie early. You know it doesn't really matter what matters is that will and we'll discuss that. Like i said another episode but what does matter this episode is carson wentz and the colts less. What will happen i. The eagles traded wentz for a twenty twenty one third round pick and a conditional twenty twenty two second rounder. Which if he plays seventy five percent of the snaps and twenty twenty one or seventy percent and the clothes made the playoffs then it becomes a first round selection in two thousand twenty two. I mean that's really not a lot. Not a lot honestly is really not. I mean if he is the franchise quarterback that the colts expect him to be since they made this trade even if it turns into a first round pick a third round pick. It's really not a lot. It's a lot free. Starting franchise quarterback. I mean. We just seen what staffer forgot. We hear what the texts wofford shawn. Watson it's this is really a lot no matter how you look at it however so from an ego standpoint like i said i don't wanna talk too much about the eagles on this episode but for an eagle standpoint. I don't feel like they got a lot But maybe this was the most they can get. They wanted to get rid of his salary. They wanted to move on so they do understandable understand. That's what you wanna do. You wanna do what you wanna do. Go for but i'm not a fan of giving them up for that for that for that price tag out at least a guarantee i. I can't be doing this whole conditional. I need a guarantee i number one number two round pick makomo give us some second round picks for picks to i get a player involved in their something so yeah from the eagles now point if i'm an eagles fan i'm a little annoyed. I'm pissed off. It'd be honest. He traded a quarterback who some of you believe instill and you didn't get a whole back and we know how hard it is to find. Quarterbacks like real quarterbacks legit quarterbacks so not happy from the from the standpoint of that but for the colts that is a win if wentz is who they think he is. That's a win. That's straight up win as all there is to it. So great job by the colts just for the price tag that it took to get him whence so far in his career. It's been pretty up and down right. I mean he's dealt with injuries. He's dealt with a bad team up. You know at times. That wasn't the greatest they didn't have the best of performances overall you know but carson wentz. I mean if you if you if you look at his career. He's been in the league for five years. I guess last year though some injuries doesn't eighteen he injuries and seventeen. I believe he has some injuries. So he's he's only had two full years. I believe he played every game but Regardless i mean he's had a really good seasons and then he's asked like not so great like last year was pretty bad. You know minus effectively play twelve games. Names a did play. It was bad it was his worst season.
Creating a Chickenless-Egg With Clara Foods' Arturo Elizondo
"The idea was always on eggs. That sounds like in. So what was the year mind. How you conceived of it. Was it something where you actually create eggs to the point where people can make a like a restaurant style egg sandwiches or was emerges as a b. two b. ingredient to kind of provide some Like outing as red processors make bread. What was idea we wanted to create so the number one of dr for us was how do we we ultimately one to clara exist you to enable the shutdown of last factory farm on earth. We want to accelerate the transition animal free protein. And so how do we do that as quickly as possible. And with the large scale possible and for us the eg was this product that was both very simple and incredibly complex. Simple in that. There are no cells in eggs. It's literally accommodation proteins. Fats and water and so from a molecular point. It was relatively simple. What most people don't realize the complexity of the egg wise in its proteins were all the binding gelling foaming aeration all those properties that make an egg so dispensable a fun fact that on your the the all all the fold a master chefs had. There's one hundred of them. And that's supposed to represent the one hundred different ways to connect with lloyd's and so we went after the egg. Mark the asked because we knew that we saw the we could have sold in pops the grocery store it makes it very difficult for anyone wanting to say eat a diet that eg free is very difficult because ingredient in almost half of ochsner grocery store and so we knew that this is a way to make massive impacts and two is. There was a massive opportunity here because so many companies rely on even when prices doubled or tripled with avian flu salmonella. All of the reasons. Why companies don't wanna use eggs. There's still a massive demand for that and so we knew that it was very sticky product. That was very hard to replace and it was hard to replace because it had properties of nothing else did and those properties came directly from the proteins themselves in so we decided to build out of technology platform. I focusing exclusively on making animal making animal proteins starting with with with egg proteins. And so. let's let's kinda give a quick five year history of the development of the product right so came out of any bio in two thousand fifteen. You got an investment. And i know that in two thousand nine you got bigger a pretty big investment. You partnered up with an on. Which are we'd investor. So and i think you release your very first product in two thousand twenty. So i kinda high level but kind of talk about that pollution towards the first product you want. So we've been. We've been very very i think for i think in terms of the companies that space. We've really kept a very low profile. Had down really another day. We knew that the only way to have a massive impact on the food system is to make accessible to everyone everyone in the world. Not just for the for the san francisco where i live or the new yorkers but really that we can make it that that this product that that people all the special in developing countries have access to and so we knew that we had to crack the code and pushes acknowledged to its limits so although been skilled before pushing biology in terms of how efficiently can we get yeast and microbes to produce. Real animal. protein was very difficult technology. Technological
Retail sales better than expected in January
"Here to discuss. The latest figures is wall street journal. Reporter harriet tori. She covers the federal reserve and us economy farm. Our washington dc bureau. Harry thanks so for joining us. Hi so retail spending is op. And i'm wondering what people are buying. Well the re buying things across the board. I mean this month was amazing. These strong we saw a five point. Three percent. Seasonally-adjusted increase From a month earlier in every category did well which is unusual in retail sales. But there are. Some country agrees the did kind of well that was Furniture electronics we saw big increase in a lot of categories that related to the home. This is a trend that we've seen during the coronavirus. Pandemic is that people who are working from home and studying from home and just spending more time at home generally a spending a lot of money on making their home spaces better improving them. Buying things like new. Tv's new workout equipment renovating different rooms and things like that. So we definitely saw that reflected in the january retail sales report. What did you think when you saw the figure of five point three percent. I was really surprised because the economists expectations were for an increase of two percent. And of course this is coming off a pretty bad holiday season. We saw declines in retail sales in october november and december which is really unusual. Because that's normally a time. When people are out shopping and spending on halloween and thanksgiving and christmas and so on but clearly. You know economists saying what we're seeing here is the impact of six hundred dollars. Stimulus checks that. Many households received another january because this appears to be related to the stimulus payments. I want to ask you about the purpose of the stimulus. Is it meant to help. Businesses or individuals. Are both economists. Are saying that this is definitely a sign that this to municipalities to be working one concern that people had about the first round of stimulus. Checks came through in march. Two thousand twenty was that a very large share of them were saved. They went straight into savings accounts. A man appeared to be because there was just a lot of uncertainty. The unemployment rate was extremely high. People were very very cautious so they want us to take that money and put it in their bank accounts they would have just in case things got even was also a relatively large serve is used to pay down debt but we'll miss seeing now appears to be more people actually spending the money this could be reflection of the fact that vaccines beginning to roll out so people feeling might. Maybe there's light at the end of the tunnel. Also the improvement in the labor market. It seems like people who have just a bit more comfortable now as she taking that money once it hits that bank account and going and spending it on things that they need. Can you put these new sales numbers in context for us. We often see them. Revised offer down after the fact the month to month data can be volatile definitely and it is subject to larger visions and we were a revision of the december number as well but over will the signal that this report sentences. That january was a really surprisingly strong month for retail spending and it just shows the american consumers Very much in the driving seat of potential growth in the first

There's going to be probably some mega losses along the way. If if there's something driving you giving you the resilience to overcome the obstacles. First difficulty is just permission to quit. However when you when you do decide to keep going have you considered the maybe the sky is not the because in life you are going to hit many psychological and emotional walls and you're going to get knocked on your ass that's just how it is.

Ladies and gentlemen. Please put your hands together and help me. Kim having excited now you know. I always like to start the show by asking my guest in this age of influences. Where is an expert who somebody the we might not know. Maybe never even considered who has been a major influence on you and on your leadership. I have people actually. It's my mother and my grandmother. Mother didn't do too much school. She went up to from two is the second level high school but she could sell. I stood eskimo and she always believed that. The sky's the limit. Which is something bet. She used to tell my sisters nine. She ended up being a single mother with seven goals and she had two absolutely so you can imagine how what was going on the house especially living in the environment so that was a lot of fun but also my grandmother my grandmother. Is you know and my grandfather. We amazing people that were missionaries. Who really my grandfather always used to say who do not leave a lack of service. That is requested as a young kid. You don't really put much thought to it. But they've been just amazing people to me Because even though they did not have much there was always something to help a somebody else. always blissed while so. Are your grandparents still around. No unfortunately my grandmother was the last two to pass away. She passed away one hundred and one. Allison i'd crazy. What how and so if you put together the light your grandparents and that whatever coming from your mom what is that if you sort of able to boil it down. What would be the central philosophy that you've gained from from those two sources grandparents are mother. A lot of it came to the fore for me in two thousand nine and the fundamental philosophy is is that Is the is the concept of a wound to a because we are it realizing that i can achieve more with the right partnerships around me and i think that is fundamentally everything. It's supported me with my executive job is supported me on the mountain but but also to realize when set partnerships and not the partnerships that you need specific levels of where you are at because i mean you know about climate the ship let you use up to address best scam in not necessarily the same ones that you need for the summit. How do you appreciate them and really say goodbye in order for music summit.

And that's why the calls you're on the rise again now. Unfortunately this robocall barrage has led me to just not want to answer the damn phone. You know about ninety. Four percent of unknown calls go unanswered. That's what higher found in. Its survey a recent survey of two thousand consumers and three hundred business professionals now. That's not good if we're not going to answer the phone that's not good for legitimate businesses. Because they just have to keep calling you know about a doctor's appointment or car servicing or whatever so anyway that so there's some weird repercussions happening with all the with the robocall situation. Speaking of the kind of scam calls you get You talked about the car. Warranty the car warranty is really is up there in the most likely scam calls. You got in twenty twenty. It's number two behind social security calls. Then there's auto warranties in credit cards bluefin then health insurance in student loan forgiveness and then calls about it's their the irs which of course they're not They're also were timely. Because of the pandemic and the and the governmental programs with that there were calls about unemployment covid nineteen and stimulus checks now. The good news is that agencies like the fcc in the tc of crackdown on big rebel. Callers and new technologies are to be implemented by call providers By june of this year. But in the meantime you know if you want to try to cut down on some of these robocalls your wireless provider has protection. You just go into your phone and figured out or go onto the website and and see pretty much. Everyone has some protection. I have verizon. And i have a call blocker and since my wife is susceptible to these kind of calls. I paid more for. Call the call filter plus services for her also online the companies. I mentioned haya. Hi and you mail both have mobile apps you can use. And they'll be links to those in story Dot usa today commented rebel calls anyway. Unfortunately you know. In the future rebel collars scammers are always going to try to pivot but maybe those apps and better technical will make us less afraid of our phones. Yeah the one thing i worry about more is the spam text. You know i. It's not as it doesn't seem as prevalent as the robo calls for myself personally. But i have noticed more now that we're getting texts spam tech's now and i start to worry that's going to be the next frontier. Where if these scammers start to get wise about people that answering their phone her robocalls getting crackdown on more aggressively than we're just gonna start getting them in text form a lot more often. Probably likely. I know i've gotten i. Don't get a lot of those. A lot. More phone calls than tex. But i do get things that look like what i assumes can be a scam and i ignore it too so yeah think you're

How is integrate become really profound. So that's gonna going onto the long perspective that is going to play out. Isn't it all the way until october. Two thousand twenty two. This is the first of the squares it's important to note that is this is the first square and such a big energy in the human dimension the collective because so much changes in the with this this square certainly for stock market from what i've read from.

MLB announces revised 2021 Spring Training schedule
"Major league baseball announcing this afternoon. A revised two thousand twenty one spring training schedule with times. Cactus league teams like the reds are gonna play twenty. Eight came across thirty days with two off days and grapefruit. League clubs will play a regionalized scheduled. To mitigate travel afford the reds. They will start now. A day later than was originally planned reds playing the indians in goodyear on february the twenty eighth. We are sixteen days away from that. They'll have a day off on saturday march. Sixth on monday march twenty second. Finish up the cactus league on monday. March twenty ninth. They'll have to off days and then open the season in cincinnati against the saint. Louis cardinals a lot of these games we are. I think used for the most part spring training games taking place during the day and they've had more games at night in recent years certainly the last decade since they moved to arizona. I as a sarasota and before then plant city. The number of night games was typically pretty small. And there's been a few more. In recent years there are more for instance that first week of games. They played two games during the day and then four games at six o'clock mountain time. Eight o'clock here and then after that one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fifteen games in spring training which is not usual in fact. I'm looking here at their home games during the week pretty much. All of their home games are going to be at night. They have three saturday home games and then they have to. One o'clock games that are played during the day. And my guess here is. Maybe and i haven't looked at this. Because i'm kind of doing this on the is you could probably tell his night games against the indians to this year facility with but i wonder if that's in part because they want the indians to go and not travel as much so they're gonna play day games. I don't know but nonetheless more night games than usual but the date you care about. First game is against cleveland in goodyear february. The twenty eighth twenty. Cactus league games and thirty days there remains the possibility that cactus league games at least in the early going are gonna be five innings or seven innings. Just because there's not going to be as many guys in camp. At least at the outset we will see we will see sixteen days between now and and
Georgia prosecutor investigating Trump's call to Raffensperger
"In addition to the events of january sixth. The article mentioned just one other specific event quote president. Trump's conduct on january six twenty twenty one followed his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the twenty twenty presidential election. Those prior efforts included a phone call on january second during which president trump urged the secretary of state of georgia. Brad ravensburger to find enough votes. To overturn georgia presidential election results. President trump threatened secretary burger if he failed to do so. I know that that thing in georgia that little episode of attempted election interference by donald trump has been swallowed up by history already. This phone call was eclipsed by the violent attack on the us capitol just four days later. It's like how the resignation of vice president. Spiro agnew got swallowed up in history because watergate forced the resignation of president nixon right after it and so when i wrote a podcast and wrote a book about spiro. Agnew people are like. Who's that guy. He wouldn't believe what a big scandal that was for a minute until a much bigger scandal eclipsed it and made us all forget the earlier one when really really life changing terrible thing happens. It tends to blot out the memory of other really bad stuff. That might have happened just before this and so it is with this georgia call. But there's a reason that this georgia called this january second phone call is the one other specific event that the author author the impeachment resolution decided to include in their charges against former president trump. Because it's because before the january sixth violent attack on the us capitol members of congress. Were already considering a second impeachment of president trump just for that goal because at that point before island attack on the us capitol. His hour-long phone call to georgia secretary of state pushing and threatening george official to try to get the election results overturned there before the attack on the capital that was president trump's most egregious and blatant act of trying to apparently criminally alter and mess with the election results to try to hold onto power. And he not only did it. It was all on tape. So what are we going to do here. But i only need eleven thousand votes found us. I need eleven thousand. Give me a break for you. Know what they did. And you're not reporting it. That's a that's a criminal. That's a criminal offense and you can't let that happen. That's that's a big risk to you and to ryan you lawyers. That's a big risk is not fair to take it away from us like this and it's got to be very costly in many ways and i think you have to say that you're gonna reexamine it and you can reexamine but reexamine it with people that wanna find answers not people that don't wanna find answers. You can't let it happen and you are letting it happen all you know i mean i'm notifying you. You're letting it happen. So all i wanna do is i just wanna find Eleven thousand seven hundred eighty loads. I want you to find exactly enough votes to declare me the winner of the election in your state. And if you don't that's a big risk to you. I'm notifying you all criminal offense by you say you have reexamined. Didn't i actually one or else. And when president trump made that call on january second four days before the attack on the capital he hit already called. Georgia's governor to pressure him. To overturn the state's election results to trump also personally called a level official in the georgia secretary of state's office. The guy in charge of elections investigations and spent a long time. Personally pressuring that guy to quote find the fraud that would result in overturning. The election results in georgia and declaring trump the winner while president trump was making all of these calls personally the top federal prosecutor in atlanta. Us attorney in atlanta resigns under direct pressure from the trump white house because trump felt and communicated to that the us attorney that he was not doing enough to find that non-existent fraud that would somehow allow the overthrowing of the election results. One of the things that made the series of escalating interventions georgia's election so remarkable. Was that it. It was just also blatantly illegal. Not just impeachable but illegal like go to jail illegal. It is against the law in georgia to solicit someone to commit election fraud state election officials to find you exactly the number of votes you need to turn the election result the other way threatening collections officials that they to change vote counts in your favor or else would surely seem to fall under that statute will now even as donald trump's second impeachment trial unfolds in the us senate and what a spectacle it is and that trial unfolds on an article of impeachment that specifically references trump's threatening call to george a secretary of state while nell a high profile state prosecutor in georgia district attorney the largest county in the state fulton county has now opened a criminal investigation that centers on that phone call district attorney. There has sent this letter to george secretary of state governor lieutenant governor and attorney general extracting them all to preserve any and all records related to the two thousand twenty election quote. This letter is notice that the fulton county district attorney has opened an investigation into attempts to influence the administration of the twenty twenty georgia general election. This investigation includes but is not limited to potential violations of georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies conspiracy racketeering violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the elections administration quote. This matter is of high importance. Excuse me the this matter is of high priority. The next fulton county grand jury is due to convene in march. This office will begin requesting grand jury subpoenas as necessary at that time
Africa's Great Green Wall to combat desertification secures $16.8 billion in international finance Impact
"Now we have science writer. Rachel danske with an update on africa's great green wall project which will soon see an infusion of billions of dollars from the world bank and others this project. The great green wall is intended to serve as a bulwark against desertification of the land south of the sahara desert while at the same time supporting communities that live in this region. Okay rachel how're you doing. I'm doing well. Thanks for having me sure. This is a rape big wall. This is a big project. It's basically supposed to be this green band that spans about seven thousand kilometers across the whole hop of africa. It launched back in two thousand seven. Rachel what would you say. The progress has been since two thousand seven now to two thousand twenty one almost non-existent which is why they launched this new round of funding last month. There was an assessment that found that a fraction of the goal had been achieved so far and the goal is for twenty thirty so they realized that time was running out right throughout this piece. You make this really important distinction between planting a tree and growing a tree. Why is that so important to think about when you know thinking about restoring lands or planting trees to help prevent desertification. The first time. I heard it. I just thought well. That's a really good way to put it. And then when racer after another would phrase it that way that we don't plant trees we grow them because that's been one of the missing pieces in restoration. Efforts globally not even specific to the great green wall but just in restoration landscape and forest restoration. Generally there has been this focus on planting trees but little focus really on looking at what gets planted in the first place in paying attention to the species diversity in the planting material and making sure that it's the right tree for the right place. There's also last follow plus maintenance of the tree then there needs to be talked to someone in west africa who was saying that. He's traveled to so many countries throughout the continental. Seen so many trees planted. But where the forests. Yeah that's a really interesting way of thinking about it. Basically tree planting mania that's been happening has come from all these different projects foundations quotas. That are saying oh. It costs a dollar to put a tree in the ground and we're going to offset our carbon. We're going to green the world but no one's looking after these trees and making sure that they live beyond that for sheer gas so now that we know that. That's not a good way to go about this. There's actually a lot of research. That's found some of the best practices for restoration projects. What are some of the recommendations have come out from research. In the past ten years when paper published last year talked about ten golden rules for reforestation. And they think those summed up a lot of the recommendations really well in addition to just protecting existing forests which probably sounds obvious. But there's a lot of research on the new. I don't have the same benefits that existing ones do and it's hard to replace that beyond that involving local communities has been just incredibly important component that researchers are saying was not really part of the focus before because the restoration ecologists are focused on the physical research and they aren't trained to think about how people play into the picture and it's just so important to the survival of the trees because it's people who are planting trees and it's people who are maintaining the trees and if you don't have community by an investment in rye these trees there and interested keeping them there. The trees aren't going to last and the trees only have their benefits when they last going back to trees here for a minute you mentioned keeping old us in place for protecting them. What else is being looked at. So that's when using a diversity of species so that there can start to be restored. Biodiversity rather than just monoculture of trees. They're starting to be focused now. Also on the quality of the seeds. And what you're actually planting. And how do we build. The systems and infrastructure for collecting and improving. Seeds is going to be the most resilient seed for that species but then it's also about the genetic diversity because there can be inbreeding with plants. If you're not collecting from wide enough geographic area than you can start to sort of limit. The gene pool and that can be problematic. You talk about this example in ethiopia of a seat initiative a network that is supposed to improve the quality of seats. Can you talk about how that would work. And how it would involve the community. The provision of adequate trees deep portfolio or pets. Bo is a project in ethiopia that they're calling it a functional trees seed system. It's a multi-pronged effort. They're trying to develop standards for seed collection and sharing that. There's high quality seed that will ensure that the trees that are planted can be their most resilient they're developing maps for how to source those seeds they're trying to strengthen the research system the infrastructure and the the research system to improve seed quality and they're linking all of that to the people who will use the seeds seeds there's technical training for farmers and the local language and there are diagrams of how to store different types of seeds. They're really trying to get that knowledge to the community to farmers and local nurseries to scale up the capacity of local decentralized infrastructure. Is there another model project that people might be looking at to expand as the money comes in. Are there other areas. That are doing good things. Yeah there was one of their project that i came across the one billion trees for africa project. And it's led by this man from cameroon tabby jota. He talked about how he grew up in this thriving economy system and he went off to university and when he came back the lands that he new as a forest with no longer for us. He started planting marina cheese and cola nut trees and mingo trees and all these different trees that would restore some of the soil health that he thought had been lost but also produce food and income generating opportunities for people so that they would be invested in keeping the trees there. He called his approach. The contagion approach. Because it's just sort of caught on. He got a bunch of men and women in this one community to be involved in the tree planting the neighboring communities saw what was happening and he was very clear that it's not like a drastic change where their community sedley rich where they weren't before but the small benefits were noticeable and so the neighboring community wanted to do something similar. And so it's just been a word of mouth approach so as he developed this very grassroots success he's gotten funding from more international sources than use it to do the work on the ground in these different communities mostly in west africa. And he's starting to do more and more with the great great wall which seems very exciting so there are a couple of different findings that we talked about that suggests the way forward for this type of restoration project involving the community diversity of. They're planting making sure that they're not just putting stuff in the ground but they're actually supporting plant growth and the communities around it but another thing that comes up a lot in your story is now we kind of what should happen. Researchers have come to a lot of conclusions that are very useful. But then there's the practice what's actually happening on the ground and maybe even what will happen on the ground. What are some of the biggest impediments to implementing the results of this research. One interesting comment. That i heard was that the implementing partners people with the money don't have scientist on their teams. They don't realize how complicated it is to plant a tree into get it right and to make sure that grows the lack of knowledge in the right places and the lack of communication between the people with the money and the people with the knowledge and also the community who is going to be involved. Those conversations aren't being had something else that a here is the expectations that donors have. They want fast results. And that's not. How trees in general work. But it's especially not how effective restoration works because all of these things need to happen and they take time getting communities involved. There's a lot of upfront investment. That needs to happen. In developing all of this infrastructure and research systems with a lot faster to just go and say just plant a bunch of eucalyptus trees. Because that's what they have the seeds and planting materials for. There's a disconnect between the speed that donors want to see results and the reality of what needs to happen. I've seen that you've written about this project for years now. What do you think you're going to see if you check back in two years. I hope to see that things. Like the pats project and this other effort the one billion trees for africa a hope that they have scaled and and that they inspire or serve as models for other projects. I don't know where. I'm placing bets. It feels like there is enough of a resounding message coming from the research community about the importance of this and the importance for the effective ecosystem function restoration and the community development but also for the climate benefits and if the global fenders governments who want to plant trees for the climate benefits if they are serious than they will start listening to these researchers. This is like thousands of miles. Four thousand miles. That's like the us plus another third right east west a huge huge area to cover an across countries. And all these different people's. How is this. possible. Rachel i mean this is a global scale. This is a huge project. it's huge. It's huge and that's probably why it sounded like the great idea when they announced it. And why didn't go anywhere for ten years but it's the partner agencies that i've spoken with involved in this project. The great queen wall are really clear that it's an environmental program but it's also the social alliance when that's meant to economic development but also really impart some resilience. See into these communities. Who are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. That's why they're really ramping. Up this funding now because they see the value for the planet from a climate change perspective but also for the millions of people across this gigantic area. Pinks rachel thanks for having me.

"Everyone on. Your sports illustrated tennis. Podcasts are last ten of being ear. Jbl joining me. We already dispensed awards handed out Various honors we toasted these six players. Who won majors in two thousand twenty in this crazy year. We have good farewell to the bryan brothers. We lamented strangeness of this rotation around the sun we have looked forward to twenty twenty one. So let's just kind of do it all out rap. Jamie how are you. How goes in your parts. Are you dusted with snow. As we are here in new york it is a little bit more than a dusting here but We are warm inside staring. It's still coming down but we are. We are all good here. I can always tell the rhythm of tennessee's in based on knows a press releases. I'm sent in when there are no tournaments On the calendar when they're no match is being played They tend to get to increasingly distant for tennis itself. It's been a while since. I've gotten a press release about An actual tournament result or a match result. So let's let's just kind of take final inventory of twenty twenty one twenty two twenty then spinning forward to Twenty twenty one. Are there any any sort of enduring memory. You're doing capsule late straight year in in in one image. What would it be in one image. That is hard. I would say if that was the case in an empty an empty stadium. An empty arena. But i think i think for me you did this a little bit in your mouth but i kind of have to agree with you that feel like all in all a twenty twenty was terrible of course across the board but for china's i do think that sport distinguish itself in many ways in. I think that for a lot of the players that you know we have been talking about for years now It was really nice to see a lot of those players breakthrough in different ways. I think of course dominic. Thiem you know had finally won his first major and you know he had a really strong year across the board You know twenty seven years old finally gets to his high ranking. Gets that major. And you know it's all done at that first ornament back first major nine only osaka of course who not only is her major haul here but then she found her voice and you know use it and use it well and i think You know we can talk a little bit more about her but you have severe kenan against him. Thank someone who we talked about. Who is young and she. You know kind of proved again that she is here and you know she's twenty twenty two years old but her first major win was not a fluke and the list goes on. I think again. These are players that we've been talking about and it was good to see them all breakthrough re cement themselves and kind of redefine their careers This year in twenty twenty such important year for everyone. I can give you my My off-court analog to that I think we're all waiting to see which of these changes are stopgap in that means in life and not just a tennis We which of these are going to be a new way of life so our zoom good replace office and are we all going to be enjoying outdoor dining going forward and how much of this is just Emergency measure it. How much this heart and into our new reality. And i think at tennis we have the same thing that we haven't had a lot of match results I'm glad you hit on the ones we did. And i did have some really good tennis but i think a lot of the discussion has been about. How do we broadcast sport. How do we travel the australian open falsifying dough high then charter private planes for everyone to then quarantine them austrailia. And we have events moving. And we've experimented with different formats for tennis and i think if any good has come out of this year it has been that tennis has finally decided to innovate to cooperate. It's not always been perfect. But i think there's a real sort of spirit of enterprise it hasn't always been around the sport
