No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens
"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?
First dog in the US to test positive for COVID-19 has died
"A German shepherd in new. York. That had the first confirmed case of Covid nineteen and a dog in the US has died Robert and allison. Mahoney Staten. Island, told National Geographic that their seven year old shepherd buddy developed breathing problems in mid. April. After Robert had been sick with the corona virus for several weeks, a veterinarian tested buddy in May and found in positive for the virus. The US Department of Agriculture reported in June that a German shepherd in. New. York state was the first dog in the. The country to test positive for covid nineteen, but did not identify the owners buddies health declined steadily after he developed breathing problems and thick nasal mucus in. April. He was euthanized on July eleven after he started vomiting clotted blood, the Mahoney's told National Geographic. It's unknown if the corona virus played a role in his death blood tests indicated buddy likely had lymphoma. A cancer of the immune system veterinarians told the family a spokesman for the New York, City Department of Health. That arrangements were made to take the dog's body for a necropsy. But when the instructions were shared with the veterinarian, the body had already been cremated. A USDA database of confirmed cases of the coronavirus and animals in the united.

America's 'Never-Ending Battle Against Flesh-Eating Worms'
"It was two thousand sixteen in the Florida keys, and a little species endangered deer called. The key deer weren't acting right. People just start noticing that these seem to be having these wounds on their heads that Sarah Zang a reporter with the Atlantic. She says the deer looked like they'd been injured by something. There were gashes on their heads. They're kind of like walking on the street like really shaking their head and they're trying to shake something off. Warning right here. It is about to get gross like like real Gross Kim Gable is a big, pine key resident and the deer in her area. You'll see gaping holes or wounds, their neck, or in their in their head, and you'll see them shaking their head. You would see dear like almost half its head would be missing, and you could see down to the skull. And eventually ears start dying in. You know it's become this big mystery of why dying, especially with these really really awful wounds on their heads. Local scientists looked into it and eventually tests confirmed the deer were infected with the parasite. Its scientific name is see Omnivore ax, which means man eater. It's more commonly known as Descru- were. The scorer is actually the magic of a fly, and this flight only lays its eggs in the wounds of live animals, and it's maggots squirm only life flesh so they're. They're flesh-eating squirms and. Sarah they sound. Your they're your best friend not. As they eat, the wound grows attracting more flies, which create more maggots which turn into more flies, you gotTA. Be can spread really fast, so local authorities in Florida took some drastic measures to okay. At least fifty of the one thousand key deer, the national key deer refuge have been euthanized on the roads out of town. Checkpoints were set where anyone traveling with a pet needed to stop, so those pets leaving the keys have to get their animal's checked out to make sure they are clear. Clear this deadly parasite, the goal which they achieved by the way was to protect as many deer as possible and keep the screw worm from leaving the keys see this outbreak was kind of a fluke screw worms used to devastate livestock in the US, but they were a radical more than fifty years ago and that's because to this day. The USDA maintains an international screw worm barrier. Along the border between Panama and Colombia, the thinnest strip of land, connecting north and South America and every league planes loaded with sterilize squirms fly over this patch of land and release millions of sterilize squirms. And this has been going on for decades. It's the biggest parasite control operation. You've never heard of at least. This is wild. Sarah I am embarrassed to say. I had no idea now I also no idea until twenty sixteen, I started writing about scurrilous.
Organic, Gluten-Free, Vegan: Which One's Healthiest?
"Hello and welcome to the nutrition diva podcast I'm your host? Monica. Ryan Eagle. I've got a series of questions from listeners lately, and although the specific topics were quite different, they all have a common root, and that is confusion about what various food designations and certifications mean for example, royds question was about contaminants in protein powders. He wrote I was recently researching which protein powder to buy and to my shock, one of the brands I was looking at was rated worst in terms of contaminants, specifically lead and cadmium. This plant based protein was certified USDA. Organic clearly, this label means nothing since they do not test for heavy metal contaminants. Why do we place so much importance on the USDA organic label if it does not protect us from contaminants? Dennis on the other hand was surprised to find that certified Vegan. Products are often full of miscellaneous chemicals and artificial ingredients. He wrote I've come to the conclusion that if I want to eat nutritious meals, avoiding processed foods whether Vegan or not may be more important than seeking out certified vegan products. And Elaine's question had to do with weight loss. She wrote I've already cut gluten and dairy out of my diet. I'm not sure what else. I can do to lose weight. Now in each case I think there's some confusion about what various labels such as organic Vegan or gluten free do and don't mean for your health nutrition. Certified Organic for example does not mean free of chemicals. It also doesn't mean more nutritious or healthier. It means that no synthetic chemical pesticides or fertilizers were added to the crops or the soils. nother reason that organic products can contain heavy metals, including cadmium, lead and arsenic is that these minerals are naturally occurring in the environment, even though they're not added through fertilizers or pesticides, they exist in the soil and the reason that Vegan protein powders are often higher in heavy metals, then way or egg-based protein powders is that plants tend to absorb these medals from the soil. They're grown in. Similarly, the designation Vegan does not mean healthier or more, nutritious or even more natural. It only means that no animal products are used as defense out a lot of the certified Vegan foods that you'll find on the shelves. These days are highly processed junk food. And furthermore eliminating gluten or dairy from your diet does not automatically lead to weight loss. Now Gluten containing foods like breads, cookies, crackers, pastas, and other flour based foods can contribute a lot of calories to your diet without a whole lot of nutrition and cutting down on flour based foods is actually not a bad strategy for losing weight, but not if you simply replace them all with gluten, free versions of the same things, because it's not the gluten per se, that's the problem gluten. Free products are often lower in fiber and higher in sugar and calories than they're gluten. Containing counterparts. In fact, people who adopt a gluten free diet for medical reasons often end up gaining weight. Because, we played a certain value on something being organic Vegan, local, sustainable or gluten free. These designations often enjoy a bit of a health halo. If we perceive them as being better for us in one aspect, we tend to think of them as being better in every dimension, but this is not at all the case certifications such as organic Vegan or gluten. Free mean only what they say, Vegan does not mean organic organic does not mean healthy local does not mean small. And because they encompass such a diversity of priorities, it's impossible to objectively rank them from best to worse or to use any one of these designations as a proxy for overall merit. On the other hand, doing exhaustive research and suppliers or pouring over the ingredient list for every food you buy is probably not realistic, so you may be able to use one or more of these designations as a shortcut to identify or weed out products that do or don't fit your criteria.

Leslie Allen on speaking freely
"Welcome to the TENNIS DOT COM podcast. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined as always by Irena Falconi. Hey, guys, how's it? Goin' our special guest. Today is the one and only Leslie Allen. Leslie Welcome. Hi. I'm so excited to be here with you. Guys for those who don't know Leslie wasn't amazing. Tennis player career high numbers seventeen as well as doubles number ten and we're going to talk to her about her career, but also what? She's been up to since stopping link. That's a lot to get into. Let's begin with. How has your quarantine shutdown period band during the coronavirus pandemic? What have you been up to? Well. It's a good thing that I like myself. Because I spent a lot of time alone I'll like everybody else and I'm in new. Jersey so very close to the epicenter of New York. Things were just out of control a few months ago or a few weeks ago. so one of the things that I decided that I would do once. I heard that it could be helpful was too so fabric masks so I just went to. My sewing area, dug out all the savage that I had because I. Work in real estate as well usually for my client I will so the Mahan. ME, apron and I just had. Had all that fabric and turned it into masks donated it to the hospitals they they accepted it. They sent us. I did it with another tennis player Pope Amuse and so we would get them picked up, and then they would send us pictures of them in the hospital with the signs with masks with signs that would say, stay home or stay say or be well, so it was a little bit. It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country. It was about a dozen of them may have different challenges and things to to figure out or interview. current athletes. What's it like so? It was really eye opening for them rewarding for me because my friends. They call me the professor because there's two things that I did. I either get up in the morning and I profess I'm GonNa do this I'm GonNa. Do this do that do that and usually I'm spinning like a top and do any of it so so they can hear me and my cadence, oh. You're professing now. They just say we don't even listen to you. We know we know you're not GonNa do, but maybe one thing on the list, but the other thing that I do. The professors is I. Love to teach in. You experience some of that I. Just I just love so it was rewarding to work with the athletes and some of my individual clients virtually to do win for life trading. So, how do you guys Know Each Other? You mentioned? You know arena from from working together. What have you guys been up to together I guess in the past couple of years. Will I will the first time. Obviously followed her career in since she was from New York and live not far from where I lived in New York. We were both in Washington Heights arena. Would you say you were Washington Heights to? I typically say Washington Heights but I'm more in. Would in lactose seven I street? Yeah, that's why I ask because I know there's a difference. But anyway we were, we were New Yorkers kindred. Areas and so I was coming down to do someone's life training with the boys and the women were young men, and the women just help them be ready for what they might face on the tour in terms of media training. How do you do interview techniques? How do you pivot and not answer difficult question? How do you get your point across and we bonded right away. Away, because we both loved HGTV and we still do so so that was I don't know two thousand fifteen in Ben, I, guess the last time I saw her was in November during winds life training at the Sloan Stevens Invitational Camp and Rada was there is one of the guests, coaches and speaker, so we just and we just kept up. Overtime was the magic of text. The company's the Wgn Usda than hire you and win for life. Colin teach people and train them. They need to. I have done some. You know I'm always involved with Billie Jean and the power hour and I haven't done as much with the US, but perhaps I, will you never know? So you know it's, it's my passion, so I'm not gonNa Chase people to to take the opportunity to to get better and to have To improve your. Your ability and I think when we feel more confident about ourselves, especially as as young women. you just do better. You play around the court. You're not worried about some things because you know all I'm GonNa. As that interview I'm not worried. I know how to speak at this party I'm not worry, and that's just one less thing. You can check on your list so. Game! Oh I believe it helps you.
Restoring the American Chestnut
"Things got yeah. This novel pathogen ideas terrifying especially when it comes to like with covert. It's got some twenty billion people to work its way through. And the chestnut, almost being jack-of-all-trades in being widespread was probably one of the perfect recipe. Check boxes to say like okay. This is how you have. An invasion meltdown caused the collapse of species. It's scary and it's so sad, but at the same time. Is Much as I've never seen a large chestnut tree, or been able to appreciate them, for what they were were lucky and very fortunate that there are still sprouts there are these these trees are still on the landscape in some capacity. I mean it is kinda functionally extinct. I. Don't know if that's the proper scientific way of putting it, but. There's chestnuts still out there today. Where did the American Chestnut Foundation kind of say? We have to do something. What was the impetus for that and kind of winded it happen, and what was those early stages Kinda like for it? Sure so so functionally extinct. That's that's the term I think for for the American, just not in words Aso a lot of people think it's extinct or endangered or threatened. It's none of those things it doesn't fit any of those categories, because there are so many sprouts out the wild, so it was estimated before billion in the eighteen hundreds at the height of the species population. The blight swept through reduce them to basically sprouts, and the under story so most hardwoods. If you've got them down, they die of the blight bill re sprout. Sprout burn readily just not does that, so they sprout. They get the blake usually by age seven fifteen. They Divac, they re sprout. They get the blame back. They re sprout so so that's what you see in the forest today, the eastern us on their an estimated four, hundred thirty five million trees, so so lot still a lot, but most of them do not reach flowering stage. We think about two million, or so are probably still flowering on somewhere around point, five percent of the population is probably still flowering and producing knots. And that's what's been used at a lot of different breeding programs and eastern us when the blight I went through the USDA's stepped in a sense implant explorers to China to say hey, finding replacement for the great American Chestnut, and so they brought over. Chinese chestnut, so that's about Chinese just nuts on the landscape. They are all over the place. You see them on farms. The USDA real big push for people to plant Chinese chestnuts. My popol planted them on his farm, but they they couldn't replace the just the American chestnut, because they typically they have been bred for Russian. Typically don't grow as tall as the American chestnut. They are very branchy, so the timber isn't as of high quality all as America's. And so that was one of the first attempts to try and save the American chestnut, or restore it or replace it, and then, since then since the thirties on through, people have tried various breeding techniques. They've tried spraying. The fungus was something they've tried systemic fungicides in the fifties when nuclear radiation Israel real huge people were taking chestnuts and throwing them in nuclear reactors to get them to mutate totally serious. And, so you've got plantations of irradiated ulmer radiated chestnuts. Most of them are in Maryland. Okay up ground where a lot of that defense. Stuff was happening, so makes us. That might be another podcast, but but there's this uranium question to try and find resistance within native. American chestnuts and people went pretty much given hope in the seventies and eighties stuff still going on, but at a much lower rate, and in the early eighties there was a corn geneticist Charles Burnham. He said Hey. Trees or plants? Why don't we use plant breeding the we using corn and things like that and use that for trees as well to impart resistance. So, that was the start of the American nomination. Arkham Burnham and some other founders I got together they the various, all nonprofit, scientifically minded organizations and say hey, let's try something called back crossbreeding to get a light resistance, and who the American chestnut and when they started, they thought that blight resistance was very simple traits that it was only two or three genes that controlled this trade, and therefore back crossing would work after you get above three genes back. Crossing really isn't active. The the numbers required too high and astronomical talk about exponential. You need exponentially large. Populations as you increase the number of genes for traits, so it was a it was a noble thought and would that it that be that resistance was only controlled by three. We know now that light resistance is controlled by many martines than three so a while back crossing itself isn't the end all be all American chestnut restoration, TCI the American Chestnut Foundation has embarked on other avenues to try and restore the American chestnut, and but but that was what what began the foundation
How The Coronavirus Pandemic Changed The Way We Shop
"Is changing the way a lot of us buy groceries. It's affecting grocery prices, too, and, in some cases what foods are available at the grocery store Almost Connie Thompson reports on new options to buy local before the Corona virus pandemic. Michael Parker, it's 42 acre pit farm in Western New York, catered mostly the restaurant. But when the restaurant started to close, Michael had to pivot he decided to sell directly to consumers from his farm. Everything just flew right out the window in a period of two hours. People are home. They're not expending as much of their regular food budget, so they're looking for higher quality ingredients. It's a trend Michael and other farmers hope continues even After we returned to our portico bit shopping habits. If you're interested in buying and eating more local foods, consumer reports offers these suggestions. First, check out local farmers markets that food is harvested locally, and it does not travel from across the country to a grocery store where you might buy it. So you're gonna be getting fresh, nutritious food. Much of what you find. The farmers market is also grown with fewer pesticides or is certified organic. The USDA finds that local certified organic products at farmers markets are often competitively priced. Compared to retail stores. You can also purchase a share in a farm programs say is a community supported agriculture. You pay a little farmer up front and then in return, you usually get a box every week that consists of what has been harvested locally. So you end up getting really great variety of food that you might not just on your own. Another option is to buy Directly from the farm. Michael Park. Odd is part of a Facebook group that connects customers to local farms. It's just over a month now. And there's 7500 members into trend that many hope will lead to a small farm renaissance that better connects people with their food.
Should You Beware of Glucose Syrup?
"Hello and welcome to the nutrition diva podcast I'm your host Monica Reina. A listener recently asked me to look into an ingredient called glucose syrup. This is often used as a sweetener in processed foods, such as cookies, candy and other confections, and she'd read that it's a very concentrated source of sugar that supposedly contains four times the amount of sugar and calories per tablespoon as regular table sugar, the implication of course that one should avoid foods made with glucose syrup. I tracked this specific claim to an article written by a Dietitian for website called health line now this is a site that I consider to be a very reliable source in general I have found their nutrition articles to be thorough, accurate and very well referenced and sure enough. That statement that Glucose Syrup contains four times. The sugar and calories found in regular sugar, was footnoted and linked to the USDA's food and nutrient database the gold standard for nutrient data. One footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for light. Corn, Syrup, which is another name for Glucose Syrup. One tablespoon contains seventeen grams of sugar and sixty two calories. The other footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for regular table sugar one tablespoon contains four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. Case closed. Actually make that case overturned on appeal. Because unfortunately, this second listing was inaccurate. You see in addition to the tens of thousands of foods that have been analyzed by the USDA to create their amazing food nutrient database, they also include as a public service nutrient information for tens of thousands of additional packaged and processed foods, and they base that on information that's been provided by the manufacturer, and there are frequent errors. In fact, there's a disclaimer right on the page that health line cited stating that the info was provided by food brand owners who are responsible for the descriptions, nutrient data and the ingredient information. Well. In this case, it was just a simple typo. The manufacturer chose the wrong serving size the nutrient info that they uploaded four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. For a teaspoon of sugar, not a tablespoon, and for those of you who don't bake or maybe used metric measures. A tablespoon contains three teaspoons. So a tablespoon of Corn Syrup does not contain four times as many calories as a tablespoon of sugar, it is actually about a third higher. It contains seventeen grams of sugar versus twelve grams, and this is simply due to the fact that sugar crystals aren't as dense as sugar syrup. Something that manufacturers adjust for in their recipes. Look if you're concerned about the sugar or the calorie content of packaged food, it doesn't really matter how many tablespoons of an ingredient were added to the recipe. What matters is how many grams of sugar end up in each serving of the finished product something that's disclosed usually accurately on the nutrition facts label look mistakes happen and I sent an email to the Dietitian who wrote the article, alerting her to the error, and I hope that she and health line will be able to correct it. But. Here's a quick tip for anyone who's using the USDA's database to look up nutrient info. You can filter those listings so that they don't show the manufacturer provided listings. The USDA data is perfect, but it's generally much more complete and more reliable than the manufacturer supplied data. But I still have one other problem with this article on corn or Glucose Syrup because the author goes on to write that quote Consuming Glucose Syrup regularly may increase your risk of obesity, high blood, sugar, poor, dental, health, high blood, pressure, and Heart, disease, and quote, and once again she includes citations this time. She's linking to articles published in medical journals. But these articles are not about corn syrup per se they refer to all added sugars,
NBC to take over U.S. Open coverage from Fox Sports
"Like the the only innovator because I know but let me ask for the people are going to be listening. Fox is the only one that's innovative anything over the last several years. In my mind, they've changed the way show. How frequently shot tracers us? They have done so many good like really long segments of commercial free. They've given you audio. That's better than anything. We've gotten in in TV and they've shook up this infrastructure. That's heavily tied to CBS and NBC. That is an issue especially with like tour run events. Events just commercial load and everything like that it's been the best viewing experience I think to watch golf on Fox. Some people love the commentary for that address horrible first year. How far they've come so far and they are like they are the only ones that seem to be proactive in getting ahead of the curve and trying to be be different, and now we're back to just these two networks again. Maybe Johnny Come Back Oh. It's for sure back. Later it seemed like also the that Fox treated like a loss leader. Yeah, you know it was like a prestige play for them and now that. Now with NBC. It's you know it's like I. Don't know if Fox had an owl or NBC. You know it's like is the US usgs taken a big financial hit to you have no. frigging blank check from Fox. How the economics of that word is basically came out like ninety one million. Know what it was I just don't know how I don't either I. Don't know how that I hope somebody's keep an eye on the amateurs and the lower level events. I thought I love. Oxyde cut-back on that the last couple of years, which was disappointing. Because nobody else. It's there right, so nobody else can pick it up and we're like even like us, open sectionals golf channel used to treat it. In all its glory golf's longest day, and they did studio shows i. was doing a lot of that to SLURP THE USDA to try to get the next rate steel, and they really like blew it out of the water this one year, and then the US. Jay was kind of like how great job
A Pandemic Dahhhling, Do You Know What That Means?!
"Hello everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan and I'm James. His I told you had a bit of a surprise for you at the start. Those, Where we're watching the great, we've got one episode left and it's filled with Hazaras. That is the catchphrase. We are in the middle of pride month, and before we get into the show, a special shot and thanks to Tom Humber stone who has been or designer over the years for? Various artwork that you may see associated with the body serve, and he's given the body serve a pride makeover, so we've updated all of our various socials and websites, and you can have a look at what he did there. We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying
Tennis to return, but not as we know it
"To the tennis podcast. It's not relived. It's not. An oral history, it's not Chris Evert week anymore, unfortunately, although I did very much, enjoy a Chris every week it's. It's a tennis podcast with actual sources, tennis based news and talking points in it, which is a very interesting alien prospects don't adjust your whatever device you're listening to his own This is reality. We're GONNA be talking about the prospect of actual live officials sanctioned tennis at some point in the not distant future. Myself Catholics David Law is in the house pro. I know you know doing it this way. Round David, but usually say something a bit more than a day yeah okay yeah. I'll say that Yeah, IT'S A. Visit to I I. Did you think we were done for the year when we were about? Ago Yeah six weeks ago. Yeah, I've I've always been been adjusting my expectations and thoughts and. Hopes etc sort of at every every turn along the way, but oh, yeah, absolutely. There was a long time when I was pretty certain that we've done for the what about Ema. Absolutely. Yes, ME, too. The future is a thing again. We're talking about it rather than the past. I missed the past. Just come to really enjoy the Paul the past safe, certain ground, and suddenly all the uncertainty and Rumor is back and we're not quite sure where we're heading again. Don't worry. It's still got fourteen shows with the past. Garnsey from Wimbledon as things stand at the moment and barring barring. Ya Cataclysmic Star events. Obviously which we've come to expect in life, we are going to be recording five grams slums worth of daily podcasts to Antigua and see which. One makes me all these conspiracy theories about five gene stuff. Was the coronavirus. Some sort of David Law manufactured events in order to find a way for us to produce. More podcasts in the twenty twenty David has the biggest grin on his face. It's definitely the silver lining that I can find Five slams. Yeah, we are. Explained probably explain why. Let's chase of the news because we've actually got. Live actual tennis news to to hit you with. Today today well, actually, it was more yesterday, wasn't it? Because the US Open and I mean it's been a not brilliantly kept secret right it was. It was leaked to the New York Times. It's been it's been all but confirmed for for a few days right? Yeah, it was clearly coming. Decision had been made an frankly even if you go back to late last week, and the all the plans being talked about by the New York Times and John Wertheim has been writing the story as well for sports illustrated, and then we did. We did a conference call. Would Feliciano Lopez with a? Dozen of the British journalist, because this is of course, fever tree championships week should have been the Queen's Club where Lopez won both singles and doubles titles last year, so he was talking to them a little bit about that, but he also really gave chapter and verse about the player meeting they had last week the. Zoom call now we're all we've all suddenly discovered. What zoom is over the last three months? This video conferencing ten. Days David Law I've done a lot of. but on this particular eighty, a planned meeting one they had four hundred players on, and this was the USDA and the the tools tending the players what the plan was to try to make the US Open plant. This is on the ATP side I leave. It turns out none of Novak. Djokovic handed out Roger Federer were on this call, but anyway the had four hundred people on it. And Lopez gave us chapter and verse on on this This media conference about what was said, and the lengths that they were going to to, and also that he was assured he was absolutely sure that it was going to go ahead. The US Open is going to happen. He said he also said it should happen. In my view, it's time the tennis to get rolling because. Bear in mind. He's not just tennis player these days He's a tournament director. He is going to be. Fronting one of the events that will take place in the remaining months of the tennis calendar. That's Madrid. He's the tournament director there, but he had a pretty stark message for the players in that call that we are going to have to accept less prize money. We're going to have to get used to that. We're GONNA have to basically stop being so precious what he was saying and understand be realistic about. The year we're in the climate. We're in the situation we're in
Dig for Victory
"To get to today's urban gardens, let's go back in time to the founding of the US, there were certainly major cities Philadelphia New York Boston, but it wasn't. Until the eighteen hundreds that more and more people move to cities and urban ization in the US really got underway. These are people who would have grown almost all their own food before, but now they live in a city. They can buy food at the market. So how many of them kept up gardening in their new urban homes? A lot of food production went on. On within city boundaries well through the start of the twentieth century, there were lots and lots of urban livestock, because people were raising pigs and cows and chicken for food within city limits anesthesia day as a historian at the University of Delaware, and she's working on a PhD about Victory Gardens. It's only really during the city, Beautiful Movement and the progressive era that city start passing ordinances that actually outlawed these forms of local food production in the name of cleanliness and sanitation and middle-class standards of respectability, because only poor people grow their. Their own food. The city beautiful movement was big deal during the eighteen nineteen in one thousand, nine hundred wealthy urbanites, all this rural migration and immigration, and of course, the rising inequality and poverty and tenements in their cities, and they were not happy. They tried to clean the city up. They built big boulevards and parks with monumental fountains, and eventually they also introduced strict zoning laws and chickens and vegetable patches were not part of these new beautiful cities urban agriculture. Something poor people needed. It had to go some cities overtime had already. Already banned maybe the animals in the streets, or even keeping certain animals within city limits, but this really solidified during the city, beautiful movement city started to enact ordinances that said no farm animals in the city at all and no front yard vegetables, either meanwhile the poor had more pressing concerns than how the city looked frequently, when bad harvests and economic fluctuations raised food prices, they could not get to eat. There were dozens of major food riots in American cities throughout the eighteen hundreds. The first urban gardening movement starts in eighteen ninety. Ninety three in the town of Detroit, because of this panic of eighteen, ninety three, there were lots of panics. In those days, the stock market was very new, very volatile and long story short, suddenly, basically overnight, forty three percent of detroiters are unemployed in what had been a booming city and the Mayor Hazel S Pingree I has to find some way to answer. The cries of his constituents. So what he does is, he starts the first urban farming movement, which is ironically happening at the same time that many productive activities within the. The city are being outlawed. In other cities, urban leaders didn't want farms in their cities, but they also didn't want riots, and so letting poor people groza food on vacant land was seen as an acceptable temporary band aid in times of shortages. The Detroit plan was called the potato, patch plan and it had pretty impressive results by eighteen, ninety, six seventeen hundred families were farming more than four hundred acres in the city, and there are letters there from local detroiters writing into mayor Pingree, saying you so much I was able to grow. Grow Food for my family and lots of the people that wrote in. It's heartbreaking, because these letters are hardly legible there in broken English. Many of them were recent, German and Polish immigrants who were taking advantage of this program to grow foods dot connected them to their home as well as to feed their families. The Potato Patch program was seen as a success, but it was never meant to be permanent in less than a decade when economic situation in Detroit started to improve urban farms kind of petered out until the next big. Big Crisis, which was World War, one, the city beautiful movement had stamped out urban gardening the Detroit potato patches were gone, but suddenly there was a huge need both for food, and for kind of coming together in a patriotic sense. At least that's how Charles lay through peck sought. He was a lumber baron from New Jersey and early on in the days of the European conflict. He wrote the US government and said people should be reason. Food would help them contribute to the war help stock shortages, and the USDA promptly said Sir. We've got better ideas going here for better uses of fertilizer and seed supplies so thanks for your input and no thanks Charles hadn't made his fortune by taking no for an answer, so he took that Fortuna and started a Liberty Garden Movement himself, and he quickly found a whole group of rich people who wanted to join him in getting Americans. Gardening again to support the war Charles and his friends created a movement. There were Liberty Gardens. Gardens on Boston Common, and in Union Square in New York and big corporations like Eastman Kodak and General Electric set aside land at their factories for employees to grow and boy scouts even had a garden at Grover Cleveland's Childhood Home in New Jersey. Even the government caught the Liberty Garden fever, and they created a school program to teach budding young home farmers how to grow food and support. The soldiers was actually one of the first nationally. Nationally promoted curricula in the country, the Liberty Garden Movement seemed to really catch the public imagination. However, there was no infrastructure for collecting numbers. The only source we have is Charles Lathrop pack himself wrote a book called the war garden victorious in one, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen, and he claims that the movements sponsored five million gardens which time when there were just over six million actual professional farmers in the US is kind of impressive but remember. Remember Charles is our only source for this number and he might have been biased. It's really incredibly hard to say, but despite its holds on the national imagination, it had nowhere near the impact of world. War Two Gardens in terms at share mount of produce ground, sheer numbers of people participating sheer difference it made in the global war effort, and that's probably why you listeners at least in the US you don't use the Term Liberty Garden. Gardens you probably say victory garden.
Coronavirus Pandemic is Making America's Food Deserts Worse
"The covert pandemic is widening the economic gap in our country. Exacerbating divides. That were already there tonight. In our continuing series inequality in America Blaine Alexander reports on access to healthy food, and how so-called food deserts are getting even worse. There's a lot packed into this little stand. Fresh fruits and vegetables most grown right out back. But for this neighborhood and Jonesboro Georgia, this stand is so much more. They're only healthy food option for miles. How crucial is this market to the people who live in this community? This market is like an oasis food desert. The nearest supermarkets about four miles away. A food desert the USDA defined it as any urban neighborhood where residents have to travel more than a mile to reach a grocery store, and you're going to see a lot. Gas stations a lot of fast food stations across the country food deserts exist in every state impacting an estimated twenty three point, five million people, disproportionately minority communities, and the areas are almost exclusively low income. We've got some beautiful locally grown tomatoes will sellers with wholesome wave. Georgia is helping with affordability and access partnering with Farmer's markets like Atlanta harvest so. So any shoppers using snap benefits can buy fresh food at half all for those living in food deserts, the two biggest barriers transportation and income problems only made worse by the pandemic recent numbers show an additional seventeen point. One million people here in the US could experience food insecurity because of Corona virus, and the health impact could last for generations and without healthy food without those fruits and vegetables, so we always talk about getting every day. It's not an effect. Your Immune System's GonNa fake obesity diabetes heart disease, even long-term cancers? Burger. King and her children coming here is a lifesaver for kids on new way to experience food. A lot of kids don't even know. Who Comes from the ground? They expected to come out of a box and for Crystal Dalton Son Hunter new possibilities now he wants to be a farmer. It gives them something before. It's giving them a purpose providing equal access to health hope. Blaine Alexander. NBC News Jonesboro Georgia.

"I'll ever twenty three on that. Big Show clock Secretary of Agriculture Mike Nag. Joining us here on the big show again today. Mike WanNa talk about two things today. We're going to get right After it I wanNA talk a little bit about the Corona Virus Food Assistance Program that was designed to bring some aid to livestock producers. That I also want to ask you about county fairs here in Iowa that coronavirus food assistance program. Though I think sign up is supposed to start this week and yet we don't have a lot of details Mike can you give us any more background? Or UPDATE US? That's right. Welcome back Bob yeah the? Usda did hold a a Webinar last week. And and frankly there were Kinda few details In that and and and yet we know that. Usda is working aggressively to try to get this done. I think undersecretary nor the made some comments Late in the week over the weekend that The package is currently awaiting White House approval. Which is which is how that works. Usda proposes something White House Office of Management and budget needs to approve and so it sounds like they're in the final stages of actually getting the the program rolled out so again remember. These are the direct assistance direct payments to producers really across the the landscape to help grain farmers livestock farmers impacted by the market disruption. So as I've been saying all along this is a good start. It does not include everything That we think that needed to help. Producers and in fact doesn't even include all of our producers egg producers are notably left out of this direct payment system the other piece remember. We've got direct payments and then we've also got. Usda making significant food purchases. I think the big number is by the end of this calendar year. They will have They're budgeted to spend around five billion dollars buying food and again those surplus products that that would have gone to food service. And and get that routed into The food helping to address food insecurity through food banks Food Pantries so It's still waiting for those details and I think staff at. Usda would be trained this week. Which is the surest sign that something's coming forthcoming on those payments? Because of you you train staff and then that's when when folks can start applying quick question on that as a follow up. I am guessing that the requests for probably Go further than what the money will revert you and being in first or is it something that's going to be applied equally? You know this is something that I I think. That's a good point. Bob And I think we all believe that there's probably a more significant market impact than what's currently being accounted for and in all likelihood you could see that situation develop just remember it as opposed to the paycheck protection program or some of the programs that have been run through Treasury is. That's those were operated as a as a first come first served that's not typically how. Usda operates And so I can't speak to that in its entirety but generally speaking we know that. Usda Concerned with and and usually roles programs out in a way that's fair and equitable and and so I just don't think it'll be run the same way that we saw. The P P P quick update on county fairs by my count Here we have Thirteen county fairs. That have changed plans in some way one of them in your backyard in Emmett's Berg. Have you heard anything else? Yeah this is you again. It's something we've talked a lot about here we we hate to see it and yet The folks those county fair boards or making the best decisions that they can given their circumstances on the ground and the folks that Iowa stayed with the four H. And and the folks that FIFA I know are continuing to look at ways to still hold competitions and for folks and so this is just one more. We're going to have to continue to to work our way through it. you know State Fair no the State Fair Board is is evaluating all options for the twenty twenty state fair. And so we're all I think hopeful that these things can continue but You know decisions have to be made. And and Boy I support those. They're tough tough calls. But we support decisions made locally. Yeah Hey Mike tough calls no doubt in hearing from some people making those decisions over the weekend to I was comforted a little bit too to see at the grocery store on Saturday. Mike For Meat Case. And yeah not maybe the cuts and the sizes that I'm used to for example twenty one pound pork shoulder opposed to seven and a half to eight or ten and a half to eleven that I usually see But but no shortage certainly At this time anyway yeah. I think that's a that's a good sign. I was in a grocery store over the weekend myself. I loaded up the smoker yesterday so had in there But a lot of a lot of pork in that smoker. But there were some other things too but Yeah I think generally what I've been seeing is that that that situation is improving some you've got grocers that are working hard to find new suppliers and as you say maybe carrying some cuts and purchasing from some places that they had traditionally done so. I think folks are grinding. It's still a challenging situation. We've got enough protein on the farm The processing capacity is still slow from from pork and beef standpoint. So I think we're you know we're running something like seventy one to seventy two percent on pork processing last week and nationally down about twenty seven percent on beef processing so this situation continues and that means we're still building that backlog of animals but I know grocers are working hard to try to find an in restaurants too as they open are trying to find product. Mike he gets the last word today. Thank you. We'll talk to you again tomorrow as we continue our kind of daily updates with you we appreciate. It sounds good secretary of agriculture. Mike Nag Joins US eleven. Twenty and we're going to continue doing that. It's good to hear from our First Guy.

Though I think sign up is supposed to start this week and yet. We don't have a lot of details Mike. Can you give us any more background or update us? That's right. Welcome back, Bob Yeah! The USDA did hold a a Webinar last week, and and frankly there were kind of few details in that, and and and yet we know that USDA is working aggressively. Aggressively to try to get this done I, think undersecretary, nor the made some comments late in the week over the weekend that the package is currently awaiting white. House approval, which is which is how that works. USDA proposes something. White House Office of Management and budget needs to approve, and so it sounds like they're in the final stages of actually getting the the program rolled out so again. Remember these are the. Direct assistance direct payments to producers, really across the the landscape to help grain farmers, livestock farmers impacted by the market disruption so as I've been saying all along. This is a good start. It does not include everything that we think that needed to help producers, and in fact doesn't even include all of our producers. Egg Producers are notably left out of this direct payment system. The other piece remember we've got direct payments, and then we've also got USDA making significant food purchases I think the big number is by the end. End of this calendar year they will have They're budgeted to spend around five billion dollars buying food, and again those surplus products that that would have gone to food service and and get that routed into the food, helping to address food insecurity through food banks Food Pantries, so still waiting for those details and I think staff at USDA would be trained this week, which is the surest sign that something's coming forthcoming on those payments? Because of you, you train staff, and then that's when when folks can start applying. Quick question on that as a follow up I am guessing that the requests for probably go further than what the money will revert you and being in first, or is it something that's going to be applied? Equally, you know this is something that I, I think that's a good point. Bob And I think we all believe that there's probably a more significant market impact than what's currently being accounted for, and in all likelihood you could see that situation. Develop. Just remember it as opposed to the. The paycheck protection program or some of the programs that have been run through treasury is that's those were operated as a as a first come first served. That's not typically how USDA operates and so I can't speak to that in its entirety, but generally speaking, we know that USDA concerned with and and usually roles programs out in a way that's fair and equitable, and and so i. just don't think it'll be run the same way that we saw the P P P. Quick Update on county fairs by my count here we have Thirteen county fairs that have changed plans in some way one of them in your backyard in Emmett's Berg. Have you heard anything else? Yeah, this is you again. It's something we've talked a lot about here. We we hate to see it and yet those folks, those county, fair boards, or making the best decisions that they can given their circumstances on the ground, and the folks that Iowa stayed with the four H. and and the folks that FIFA I know are continuing to look at ways to still hold. Hold competitions, and for folks, and so this is just one more. We're going to have to continue to to work our way through it. you know State Fair? No, the State Fair Board is is evaluating all options for the twenty state fair, and so we're all I. think hopeful that these things can continue, but you know decisions have to be made and. And and boy I support those. They're tough, tough calls, but we support decisions made locally. Yeah, Hey Mike tough calls no doubt in hearing from some people making those decisions over the weekend to one thing I was comforted a little bit too to see at the grocery store on Saturday, Mike for meat, case and yeah, not maybe the cuts and the sizes. Sizes that I'm used to for example twenty one pound pork shoulder opposed to seven and a half to eight or ten, and a half to eleven that I usually see but but no shortage certainly at this time anyway. Yeah, I think that's A. that's a good sign. I was in a grocery store over the weekend myself I loaded up the smoker yesterday, so. had. In there. but a lot of a lot of pork in that smoker, but there were some other things, too, but yeah I. Think generally what I've been seeing. Is that that that situation is improving some? You've got grocers that are working hard to find new suppliers, and as you say, maybe carrying some cuts and purchasing from some places that they had traditionally done, so I think folks are grinding. It's still a challenging situation. We've got enough protein on the. The farm the processing capacity is still slow from from pork and beef standpoint so I think we're you know we're running something like seventy one to seventy two percent on pork processing last week, and nationally down about twenty seven percent on beef processing. So this situation continues, and that means we're still building that backlog of animals, but I know grocers are working hard to try to find an in restaurants to as they open are trying to find product. Mike he gets the last word today. Thank you. We'll talk to you again tomorrow. As we continue our kind of daily updates with you, we appreciate it. Sounds, good. Secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nag Joins US eleven twenty and we're going to continue doing that. It's good to hear from our first guy in agriculture, especially as the situation is very fluid with not only aid programs, but as you can see and Andy has a link there that'll keep you updated on any county fairs changing that he'll post on the website but that also as well very fluid situation.

And that. That is a message and a power play that I don't know that even the PGA tour players or tour players, realize that they have if they did something like if you really want change, then you stand together, as a solidified group saying, we're not doing that. So you do what you want, and we'll do what we want. Thank you. And that right there will send panic through an organization like the USDA. Because think about the PGA championship win of they ever gotten it wrong. We were just at a golf course that the USDA had a US open on more than one time and talked about how brutal Bethpage Black was no-one said it wasn't fair. Not one player. That's it or even off the record that I talked to just on the side. Not one person said anything about the setup was unfair. But you go back to hear a major champion who says, let's be honest since chambers bay. It's been a disaster every year. Tell me one person come forward and tell me that that's not true. See in listen to some of these guys in the quotes about whether or not, they were going to boycott, it said, we, we had about ten to fifteen guys who are willing to sit out after two thousand sixteen. Some of them are big names. So my apologies. The boycott was after two thousand sixteen. Some of them were big names, Dustin was one worry was another. Another major champion and former world number one said. I was prepared to do it. Absolutely. Another major champion said, I was one of them. And then multiple PGA tour winners said, I would've boycotted it, if it had come to that, if it wasn't a major I wouldn't even play in it. And a lot of other guys feel that way. But that also had to do a lot about the money as well. Remember, they had up the money, big here. That's another bullet point in the discussion of the USDA dysfunction contract.

"Imagine when you find out this whole branches of the whole branch. But yes, so they are you on first amendment grounds, which is clearly nonsense and is fucking ridiculous. So a recent lawsuit with Hormel, the meet people, don't, you know, the people who make that terrible chilly. It really shows how this practice like looks in action. So during litigation of this lawsuit. It was shown that the company's Hormel natural choice label uses the same hormone and antibiotic treated animals that Hormel uses in their other conventional hormone meat products like spam. But it's the sorts the same. But it's under the Hormel natural choice. Yeah. So it's like, it's like Doritos. And then like if they came up with like organic Doritos, then you found out the same. Seem like meat or whatever for more money. So you know, the natural choice label. Went along with an inflated price tag. Because people consumers thought they were paying a little bit more for better better product back. Same fucking the same exact fucking products. And while this is obviously shady is how it's entirely legal right now in the United States jerks. Okay. So like, we said the FDA has absolutely no guidelines for the term natural and only lightly enforces, the use of the term all natural. Okay. Meanwhile, the USDA defines natural do. With food out of politics, some sick of it. And meanwhile, the USDA defines natural as quote a product containing, no artificial ingredients or added color and his only minimally processed. Meaning it's processed in a manner that does not fundamentally alter the product. Okay. So that means that animals raised with warm owns and lots of antibiotics can still fall under the natural category. As can't Cheetos, and lemon flavored Oreos. The is. There's nothing natural lemon flavored or use sairy few people if anyone has ever gotten in trouble for using this labeling people should. Yeah. So natural all natural bullshit their own meaning thing. Okay. Certified organic with the USDA seal on it is what you're looking for that matter to you an agenda like not to like, maybe we'll post this on the website bit is that this is like the front matter of our first book.

This is to read your fucking ingredients. I would even do a side by side. I would go get like they're normal. You'll be by the Brown packaging, 'cause they're like, oh, it's so for sure. I heard that look to see if organic is just in the name of the brand or saying, it says that uses organic ingredients, you know, like look for all that in before you go ahead and spend the extra four dollars on the products.
