Tree Care 101
"Now I know that you were telling me earlier the your company you're you're really busy right now with tri care and talk a little bit about when when somebody calls a landline number to come out to their house to take a look at their property and their trees what what are the first things you start to look at? Well, the first thing we really start to look at is how you know, we're we're looking at the the Leafs, you know, what's the color of the leaves are is it a full canopy, you know does a tree look thinner and canopy a lot of times that's a sign of a maybe an insect disease issue could also be a sign of like a route issue panicle issue, then we start to really look at the structure of the tree. You know. Are you seeing holes in the trunk of the tree? Are we seeing sawdust at the base where the branch is attaching to? These are all things that were evaluating. We're looking at these trees, you know, it's but the health is probably that first thing that I just I always go to you'll have to have a healthy tree to enjoy it and most of the time they're easy quick fixes, but song Times when we get called the trees already half dead. So that's the thing to to be thinking about when you're looking at your trees. It's don't wait till you wake up that morning. You're going my trees missing half its leaves what's wrong? So it's those little small tweaks that you gotta start to look for before before it's too late. And I guess you know looking at the health of a tree Fred always says never prune anything higher than you can reach with your feet on the ground. I know you guys are you go up in the trees because that's your job and and you're good at it talk a little bit about the pruning of the trees and and and home is do you take out a certain percentage or is each tree just individually different. It really depends on the tree and the situation. I mean, that's the hard part is there's there's some rule of thumbs. You don't want to take out more than twenty-five thirty percent of the canopy, you know of living tissue stuff like that, but that can even be different, you know on a small the you know adolescent tree to spend in the landscape a couple of years. You could make only two years. He cuts and take out 50% of the canopy, but that tree if it's healthy. It's going to be fine. You prune old and mature tree. Sometimes you only want to take out 10% of the canopy cuz you take too much out stressed that tree out, you know, you gotta think about is the Leafs or the the producers of the energy for the tree. So you take too many leaks out of that tree. It's not producing the energy and can stress it out, you know, but definitely am looking at bringing your tree, you know, evaluate the branch structure, you know, taking out the dead branches. It's not going to affect the tree and things like that, but definitely don't take too much of the leaf leaf structure out. I know Fred always talked about also looking into a tree and looking at the branches sort of as as the spokes of a wagon wheel he likes to take a look at a tree and then say, you know, how are the branches spaced apart? Definitely. So when you think about spacing to you don't want all the branches coming to one spot think about a pear tree and I guarantee if anybody has a pair to go out in their backyard and you're going to see this you're going to see a trunk coming out of the ground and about anywhere from five to six feet long. It's going to split into probably anywhere from 4 to probably I've seen ten different branches in the same spot and that's that's key is is really we really focus on structural pruning and and and took the branch structure of those trees and really anybody at their house can do the same thing because I always put it as like think about taking a kid, you don't throw them in the closet and then ten fifteen years later open the door to see how they turned out. Are you sure? Well, I don't but I never know but the same thing like the tree right you don't you don't just plant and let it go because it's going to develop horrible structure. It's going to be a nightmare. It's going to cost a lot more money. Yeah. It's just a couple little Cuts here and there will really go a long way on that tree.
Bill Barnwell on NFL Undefeated Teams + Monday Preview
"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?
"Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. So that's the lead. In this is in reporting from New York Times Sunday afternoon by investigative reporters Russ Butner Suzanne Craig, and Mike Macintyre now Russell Suzanne incidentally or two of the three that dropped the huge story on trump's finances in October of two thousand, eighteen ahead of the midterm elections. and that was fueled by the financial documents provided by Mary trump who is now suing the president and his siblings by the way for defrauding her out of millions of dollars. But back to today's story from the New York Times quote. The New York Times has obtained tax return data extending over more than two decades for Mr Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. This article offers an overview of times findings. Additional articles will be published in the coming weeks. So this one, hundred and ninety two paragraph long story is an overview of the times findings. this is the sparks notes the abridged version the Reader's digest abridged story. And I'm GonNa go over the key highlights with you. Hundred Ninety two paragraphs is the overview of what they found. And they're going to be releasing multiple stories in coming weeks for details about what they've uncovered an important caveat here by their very nature, the filings will leave many questions on answered. These tax returns that they got many questions will be unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the irs not the findings of an independent financial examination they report the trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth nor do they reveal any previously on reported connection to Russia? This kind of makes sense why Sivan's needs the documents, right These data simply report revenue not profit in two, thousand eighteen for example, trump announced his disclosure in his disclosure that he had made at least four, hundred, thirty, four, point, nine, million dollars. The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line forty seven point four, million dollars in losses. So he announced his disclosure, he made four hundred and thirty, five million. In here it says he lost forty seven point four million. To that's what he filed his taxes as. All of the information that times obtain was provided by sources with legal access to it. So we can. Try to guess. WHO This to the New York Times prior to the election maybe somebody on the case who knew that the case wouldn't be Sort of we wouldn't see any fruits of that until after the election. I don't know I'd be guessing. These tax data examined. by The Times, provide a roadmap of revelations from write offs for the cost of criminal defense lawyer a mansion used by the family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars that the president received from the twenty thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. So that's kind of a Russian dealing. The apprentice may trump a total of four, hundred, twenty, seven, point, four, million, which he then invested in a collection of businesses that we're failing mostly golf courses. They steadily devour cash much as the money he secretly received from his father the and how that financed spree of quixotic overspending that led to his collapse in the ninety. the picture that perhaps emerges most starkly from the mountain of figures and tax schedules prepared by Mr Trump's accountants accountants. MAZAAR. Clue. Probably got this from the Manhattan Da Somebody there. This is the picture that emerges starkly is of a businessman president in a tightening financial vice. Most of trump's core enterprises from his constellation of golf courses to conservative magnet. Hotel in Washington I guess it draws conservatives. They all report losing millions if not tens of millions of dollars year after year. His revenue from the apprentice and from licensing deals drying up and several years ago he sold nearly all the stocks that now might have helped him plug holes in his struggling properties and tax looms. And within the next four years more than three, hundred, million in loans and obligations for which he's personally responsible personally will come do. Over the next four years. And these records show the actual and potential conflicts of interest created by trump's refusal to divest himself of his business interest. While in the White House his properties have become havens for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials, and others seeking facetime access or favors. The record for the first time, put precise dollar figures on these transactions. Here's some examples at the Mar, a Lago Club, a flood of new members starting in two thousand fifteen allowed him to pocket an additional five, million a year from the business people paying for access at his Durrell Golf Course in Miami. The roofing materials manufacturer GIF spent at least one point, five, million in two, thousand, eighteen even has as its industry was lobbying the trump administration to rollback egregious federal regulations conflict. In two thousand Seventeen Billy Graham vandalistic association paid about four hundred thousand dollars to the Washington Hotel where the group held at least one event during its four day World Summit in defense of persecuted Christians. Then when he took office Mr Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president. Even. So in his first two years in the White House is revenue from abroad till seventy three, million dollars. And while much of that money was from his golf properties in Scotland and Ireland some came from licensing deals in countries with authoritarian leaning leaders or thorny geopolitics. For example, three million from Deteriora- from the Philippines two point three, million from India and one million from Turkey. Now the data also contains. Revelations about the one hundred, thirty, thousand dollars payment to Stephanie Clifford Stormy Daniels. The, which is one of the focuses of the Manhattan da Subpoena for trump's tax returns. Another financial information another clue that that might be where they got this. However. They say that it has no new revelations, but there is kind of a revelation because trump has acknowledged reimbursing cohen. Who made the? Payoff. But the materials obtained by The Times did not include any itemize payments to Cohen. The amount however could have been improperly included in legal fees written off as a business expense which are not required to be itemized tax returns that says to me. That trump. Didn't make the payoff where he would have had to have itemize it. Which says to me. It was improperly recorded. As a business transaction. At for legal fees, which is another thing to Manhattan as looking at. Business fraud. Falsifying business documents. Now, no subject has provoked more intense speculation about trump's finances than his connections to Russia while the tax records revealed no previously unknown financial connection and for the most part lack specificity required to do. So they did shed light on the money behind the two thousand thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow at the subject of Enduring Intrigue Because of subsequent investigations into Russia's interference in two thousand sixteen. So basically what the time saying here is that there's nothing itemized here about Russia, but there wouldn't be because it's not required to be in tax returns but boy, did we see something interesting about the? Miss Universe Pageant in twenty thirteen. The records show that the pageant was the most profitable Miss Universe during trump's time is co owner and that generated a personal payday of two point three million dollars made possible by the Aguilara F- family at least in part who would later help set up the infamous twenty sixteen trump tower meeting. For. Officials seeking dirt on Clinton with Veselnitskaya who is now we know connected directly to the Kremlin. The record show that in two thousand thirteen to paget reported thirty one point six, million in gross receipts. That's the highest since at least the nineties allowing trump and his co owner NBC's split the profits of four point seven million by comparison trump and NBC lost two million on the deal the year before. Moscow and made three point eight million from the one the year after. So it appears the Russia one. Made money and made a lot of money a lot more money than it ever has before. So did. Russia overpaid trump for this event. Wonder why? In Two thousand, thirteen?

So this is this is a complicated story, but there's something technology they're gonNA call sidewalk. which basically put sensors all over your neighborhood. They realized that well, you know you have a doorbell or. You know your your mailbox to might be distant from your Wi. Fi may not be able to get a connection. So what if we spent set up? A low bandwidth network for Internet of things. That goes spans the neighborhood and your neighbors if they have. Amazon stuff. Will support it. It's nine hundred megahertz. So that goes a long long way. Amazon says as much as half a mile. There's a little sensor you could put on your mailbox say. You've got mail. That'd be funny if it said that you've got mail. and you're smart lights and your garage door opener and your and your doorbell, and all that stuff can be on that network. They also say will work with trackers like tile. Because Do. We really wants Amazon have sensors all over the. What that's crazy. But that's not the craziest thing they announced. It's not even close. They a few a month or two ago. They announced a wristband that will analyze your voice and let you know if you're angry. Maybe at the end of the day, you know you, you had some really angry conversations. Okay. Okay they say don't we're not sending your voice back to the Home Office is just analyze it on your in your band. Well okay. I don't I believe that. But. That's not the craziest thing. Even ounce. Probably. The craziest thing they announced is a security camera. That's a drone inside your house. Maybe forty seen the the videos of it. It's just a little base unit looks just like kind of an Amazon. ECHO says, ring on Amazon bought the Ring Doorbell Guy. Says Ring on it. And It's two hundred, fifty bucks available next year.

Drapes S- couches, dogs. v You could say where it can go and what path takes they don't go in the bedroom. But So when you first get it, you, you build a map for this drone. It says, okay. Tell me where you'd like me to go to look around. It can be commanded to fly on demand. So guests, it could fly when your home if you WanNa see what the kids are up to. Uh Mom. Kids are GonNA start throwing things at not get off, take it back at the drone out of my room. or it can be programmed to fly. When a disturbances detected by the ring alarm system. When the cameras in the charging basic can't see anything the camera the. Records only when its in flight and and rings says, the drone makes an audible noise when flying of course, it does and you've heard drones or noisy. So, it's not going to sneak up on anybody. So you could use it. They said, well, how many times have you? Left the House and said, did I leave the stove on? If you ever done that I've done. That have you ever turned back to check. I don't remember if I've done that but I wouldn't be surprised not how you can just have the drone look. Is the dog. Okay sleeping.

So you know they they can't hurt anybody if should fly into you. I don't know I. THINK WE WANNA. Battle drone. In case of troopers come in I think it should have shocked probes, buzzsaws, projectiles should you know let's put a gun in the thing? How you like it? The ring. Always Home Cam. That's the weirdest thing Amazon announced. Yeah Wow We think we're living in the future. This is doesn't life feel a little bit like a science fiction novel now? Like maybe it's just me. I feel like You know when I started doing this show way back when in the nineties it was like Oh. Yeah. Yeah. You can. You can have a spreadsheet and do your. Business. Documents.

Cree author David A. Robertson on writing everything from graphic novels to a memoir
"I want to go to my trap line one last time he says. I cannot breathe. I know he hasn't been to his trap line for almost seven decades. We've been on a journey as father and son for thirty years, and for the first time, it feels like we've found our destination. And I think maybe we've been headed there all this time. Whatever choose exists between us. The end of our journeys in front of us. That's David Robertson reading from Blackwater, family legacy and blood memory. One of three books he has coming out this fall. To say, he's prolific is a bit of an understatement. The cree writer based in Winnipeg started writing in two thousand and nine and has already published more than twenty titles from the Governor General Award Winning Picture Book when we were alone to his graphic novel series the reckoner to his first novel, the evolution of Alice published in two thousand fourteen it seems like he can write in any genre for any age group. David Robertson is my guest on the show today. Thanks so much for being here, David All. Thanks for having me. It's a pleasure. So this month you published your most personal book to date a memoir called Blackwater family legacy and blood memory, which we just heard a bit from. And it chronicles the story of Your Dad's returned to the family trap line Norway House creed nation in northern. Manitoba. So first off most people wait until they're a lot older to write a memoir So why did you want to write now? Yeah. That's a great question and there's there's probably a bunch that goes into that answer. One of them is that you know I've been talking about my dad and I for the last eleven years ever since I was a published writer I found that when I was public speaking all of my talk somehow came back to my father and I and and he's played such a big role in. My own development my understanding of you know who I am as cree person. There's one time I was giving this lecture at University of Manitoba couple years ago where I was the same thing talking about my life in my father and our relationship, and then a professor came up to me after and said, you really have to write this down and so. Money as a writer I'd never thought about writing actually my own story and that really kind of jog something me were. I decided that that was something I. needed to do. The other part of it is that you know my father at the time was declining I mean he was still himself and he was still my dad but he we knew that our time with him a short it was getting shorter and I really wanted to start working on this because it was something I always wanted to do I wanted. To document his life and and our relationship the teachings he gave me for myself and for my family and so all of this kind of came together and made me feel this agency to write the story now, and certainly when we went to the trap line together two years ago, it felt like the framing for the story had happened because I think it was where we were journeying to. All these years together. That's that's where we were going to and so when we got there, it felt like the right time to document everything that had happened between us and in our own lives and teams like such a special trip to be able to go on. Yeah I mean it was I I. Don't know if I could even put it into words. I. Tried my best in the book but it was blackberries in the title of the book and I really did feel that blood member was something that played a big role into why Blackwater why this trap line my dad grew up on felt home to me as soon as I stepped off the boat onto the land. I just felt like I'd come home and I, know that watching dad, you know amble up the inclined towards this big boulder in the middle of this clearing I know he felt like he was home to it was incredibly emotional intensity emotional moment for us and it turned out that it was the only time it could have happened because you know dad passed away just this past December and it made me even more grateful for spending that time with him and being able to write. About that experience through his words in my own and did you learn anything you know anything about yourself while writing a memoir I know that you know when you when you go into material like this, you sort of have to dig back in sort of excavate your own life and sort of reexamine things maybe in a new perspective did you learn anything about yourself? Yeah. I think anytime you revisit your past and learn more about the people who came before you. You're inevitably going to learn more about who you. Are you know I've always said and I've learned from my dad, the process of you know understanding ourselves and who we are that journey starts well, before we were born starts with understanding who came before you and know certainly in this book, it talks about my grandmother and my dad and their lives before I was born and my dad's after I was born and all of that plays into forming a sense of identity. It helps to you to understand more about yourself and there's things in even researching this book that. I learned that kind of. Forced me to re contextualize my life in my identity. No. When I was a kid I, always believed that my parents drew grew up intentionally raising me to be non indigenous to protect me from. You know what they felt would have experienced growing up in the city in. Winnipeg. As a cre- kid and in the process of researching this book and a lot of that research was just sitting down with my dad spending hours with him talking he said that's not true. I. I never wanted to tell you what it meant to be original. But I never told you that I didn't want you to be my goal was to model that for you. But to give you the tools that you need to figure out for yourself and one of the things that always sticks with me as you said, how to teach you how to be crea- you are cre-. So nothing I can say can make you more or less cre-. Your journey is defined what that means. For Self and his role was to kind of guide me in a way to that understanding and I think he did that.

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
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.

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.
YouTube Launches TikTok Rival in the Only Market Where TikTok is Banned
"The first rule of facing off against a big competitor is find a market where you have an advantage. That's why Youtube chose India to test its new shorts announced last week.

But reels hasn't been the success story instagram hoped for it makes the camera more complicated and fields quote tacked on according to a review in the verge. It's easy to miss reels videos entirely because they look just like regular videos in your feet.

The company has also been embroiled in a high profile, high stakes bidding war for its US operations, as well as a geopolitical dispute between president. Trump and China, but tick Tock keeps on ticking usage is still growing despite the APP setbacks last week, the company announced it had one hundred million active monthly users in Europe.

With so much competition the short form video market is crowded to say the least we'll just have to wait and see if you too short's ends up getting more than fifteen seconds.

"In the straight up statistical motivation for this next story was a report from the commerce. I department this morning. That consumer spending rose four tenths of one percent last month. That is good for reasons suburban About to explain. But it's also a data point on an economic continuum if you will because what's happening now has to be compared to what happened in this economy in the past and how it might affect the future that is I grant you Ted high-concept but Sabrina bail me out. If we are what we eat then our economy is what we spend. Well basically holding up our economy take a couple of years get Yaro is a consumer psychologist and author of decoding. The new consumer mind consumer spending always a massive part of the economic health of our country. RETREA consumer spending is just what it sounds like. It's what we spend on everything from toilet paper to cable food to health care in the first quarter this year it was growing at a rate of four point six percent adjusted for inflation and the second quarter went down to three point two percent and so far this quarter. It's down to two point two percent growth. That's not bad. Consumer spending is increasing at a pretty solid rate. However it's slowing down from the pace during the middle part of Twenty Nineteen James Bond is an economist with HSA AHL market? People were excited earlier. This year we were coming off a lousy end to twenty eighteen. The stock market was looking up. The employment rate was getting better and better. Those fundamentals are still in place. Where did you see that consumers at this point a year taking a little bit of a breather that does not mean that we are going to have a bad holiday spending season on the contrary things are looking Jeff? Scott Brown is chief economist at Raymond. James Yeah the overall trend here is still pretty promising We're looking consumer spending being driven by job growth and And wage growth and those trends are likely to continue into at least in the first half twenty twenty spend away fellow consumers spend away in New York. I'm Sabri Benesch. You're for marketplace gathering. I were talking about the tax law a couple of minutes ago. Here's another angle. The House voted yesterday to roll back part of it specifically the ten thousand thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deductions salt. They're called shorthand. The new bill would temporarily ditch the limits that the law imposed on the dollar amount of those payments ayments that people can deduct from their federal income taxes. And yes no. I know the chances this thing passes the Senate or slim to less than zero. But it's a window into the affect the laws had on one corner of this economy. Real Estate Marketplace's. Amy Scott is on in Affluent Montclair New Jersey. The average property tax bill is is more than nineteen thousand dollars. Almost twice the amount homeowners can now deduct I would say it's encouraged a lot of people too especially in the higher end to sell their homes that's broker June regular with the Stanton company all that selling in high tax states like New Jersey and New York and Connecticut has led lead to a glut of expensive homes says Lawrence Yun Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors while the buyer perspective they are willing to only only make a bid at a very big discount. Union says that's one reason prices have been growing more slowly and even declined in some places at the high. The end of the market and that price competition has filtered down to the medium high end which means that it is leading to the wealth reduction for the people who may be in the middle income bracket. It's too early to know the long term effect of all this. The cap only kicked in last year and Kim Reuben with Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center says the majority of taxpayers still came out ahead even for people who are limited in their deduction. There are other things that went on with a tax law that lowered their overall burden. Realtors say State Flake Tennessee. Florida and Texas. Have come out ahead to attracting new residents residents with their lower taxes. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.

"No I know it's not technically the end of the year yet still. We're going to take a look back from American public media this. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Friday today the twentieth twentieth of December. Good as always have along. Everybody so look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December.

"Happy anniversary Trad ooh That's enough for me because they think of the greatest internal war that we're fighting right now is apathy in bodied person and feel the hope of life and all of its nonsensical emotional waves men to that it's leap brave to be able to feel those emotions whenever they arise because that's the only way that it will a released and be perhaps here's some creativity within you inches no matter what since energy can be created nor destroyed why not use whatever is going on on and bring light to it by creating now let the magic begin Hello and Miami's it's cal and happy to year anniversary for your own magic are you kidding me it's been two years I mean this Wednesday so not today exactly but this Wednesday October sixteenth will mark the two year anniversary of your magic I have chills right now how many times have I said I got chills the past two years Oh dear some of the soul tribe has just grown immensely look back on it where the consciousness of the entity of Yoma was to where she is now all of us I mean come on and if you're also knew well welcome you are in for quite to treat my friend very soul expanding trade I re shared Yummy story yesterday wholesome pauline shoutout Paulina who said that she went all the way back and re listen to the very first episode that Alien I did called in your own magic and in the story she said re listening to this nearly two years later and Holy Shit I'm understanding this on a whole different Lovell Hell Yeah I noticed that whenever I read or I listened to brilliant wisdom whether it's denser simply just divine wisdom usually from a metaphysical or a quantum or philosophy or channel work and then I really read or re listen later there's always a new lair to it as I understand it on a completely different level so I mean I haven't religious into that episode but just to know that some of you have and that you understand on another level I mean to me I have chills of course but to me as just confirmation that there was some deep wisdom from our souls that were coming through that perhaps Human Ego mind would forget under the veil of forgetfulness or just completely block it as we don't remember these universal truths often unless we really do open to that presence in our open presents in the more that we begin to dive into this spiritual work this work that is beyond what meets the physical and we co create with our guides in some way and we're just opened that the more I noticed higher wisdom does end up coming through there like where the hell did that come from because I mean there was some only moments and there have been so many moments in there will still be so many moments where I'm like how the hell did I come up with that that I built that out because I did normal raquel would not really know that but Presen- and open and from her heartbreak hill connecting with Seoul listening from her soul will whenever I have a question that my mind might be racing around I do take that time to write it out and then often I'll answer from whatever my soul feels because I'm in a more rounded place so yes innocence me answering my questions in my journaling but because I'm present in the woman and just listening from my heart for my soul I'm able to receive more clarity from within that gives me profound guidance and reminding me that all is truly well and I can feel that in that space many of you may be familiar with doing that if you are on the a your own magic dot life membership site or have just listen to podcasts and have been doing that yourself because we talk about that a lot it's just oh profound when you take that time that space that silence to listen so you can receive that clarity because you really do have all the answers within you always know but sometimes our mind is just all over the place in touting your judgments and so it can be hard to really know what is true or what perspective will best serve you that may seem like truth because in all honesty there's vast amount in the amount of perspectives and perhaps many of them are true to some extent anyway on another note Happy Aries Full Moon my and apparently ms aries is going to be showering us with some transformative energy for us to harness kind of a big you kind of a big time for change and so what kind of energy well energy that sets our soul on fire you simply pursue our passions and our purpose and love and help also manifests imbalance that relation intiatives that happened to be strengthening whatever it is that is igniting you so for me my soul right now is obviously ignited by the podcast and the conversations that I've been having lately with very recent guests but also my co creation with any Tarasova who also is a past guest on the poetry book her Instagram is at Dreaming Moon's shadow to Anne and she's also on Youtube and she's just phenomenal brilliant human. We're actually going to be doing some workshops in the states together next year and yes there's the poetry book that's coming out poems I wrote back into seventeen and eighteen with illustrations and we're talking about evolution man I see the poems that I write today a versus then I can just tell it's expanded on another level and then there are also some old poems where I saw one way then and then now where my consciousness lies already read those old poems and I feel like those were almost messages for my future and that present moment at that time but for my future it helps me on another level now and it's even deeper than Ivan thought it was initially if that makes any sense but yes so phenomenal illustrations is such a talented artists if you'd don't know who she is indeed just go look at her it's very cosmic it makes you want to create and illustration so for this book are very like ooh empowered divine shocked the feminine like beyond what I had envisioned so I'm excited for all of you to see this have chills just thinking about it you can make a drinking game with how often I say I have chills I don't because the drinking too much is not the best for the vessel guess it hasn't hurt have wine and stuff on occasion though right anyway full moon as you know is just a beautiful time to also bring something to mind that you may need to simply let go of a behavior or a feeling or something sort of old programming and then use that energy of the full moon to release it so since you know aries is a fire sign might as well just burn earn what you intend to released on something that is tangible like a paper and just burn it into the ether and simply just excited for the transformation Oh other side note I finally slept all libra new moon I haven't been able to sleep aries full moon all of a sudden decides to make an appearance and I'm able to sleep what the well that's crazy that's another side tangent okay so some things that you might want to release you know perhaps those dumb reality does that keep killing those brain cells actually notice kidding I like to watch some reality shows can't deal with the two overly dramatic ones that are clearly fabricated but I ah I love psychoanalyzing beings that are just so different than my reality I mean they're just too damn entertaining watching people live their unique lives truly fascinates me but you know maybe that's not what I'm going to ask to release this time around but there are so many things at all us might want release such as you know cutting the cord from certain people at the feelings that you might have people or being a people pleaser uh or being distant from people because that could just create a vibration of animosity that you just simply don't like or perhaps you like pretty much all of us create false narratives in our minds of a situation or someone's perspective that you know perhaps make you feel insecure and then and keep you in your mind your head versus your heart or just perhaps you wanNA release whatever it is holding you back from that thing that ignites is your soul or holding you back from tapping into that divine within you where you can receive all the clarity all the answers that you need and maybe just need that whatever is blocking you reveal to you because you have no idea so you can just simply ask for that and then hopefully you'll receive a messaging assign a synchronicity in some way that it just clicks and you're like Oh that's it that's why so many like I didn't allow myself to even be in the process of wanting to publish poetry book though I had accumulated hundreds of homes I just kept those to myself because of the fear of success and also just the fear of not being good enough it's like my heart gun being put out there and people like narrower I have the fear that because it happened in child good had to do some inner child work had to reprogram that on a full moon I asked release it a few weeks later trickled away something shifted indeed I was like you know I'm just GonNa do it also hosting a retreat I had this fear I would not be ready or good enough yet to hold space for women and honestly something shifted as well when I intentionally set that out there and move one of my favorite things that I felt so ready hold that space and by the way SEDONA onsite sold out but for offset attendees in Sedona we have some spots available so you can hang out with me and spiritual Chandler Bree Melanson who is pal were full and yes she'll be channeling will be doing a lot of breath work the beginning a lot of deep insight from your soul I'll tell you the red now and really tap into the divine goddess that lives within all right now there's been a long intro but guess who is on this show
