Climate Neutral's Austin Whitman Discusses Industry Efforts to Go Green

"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast I'm the host David Entra Cosso. During this podcast discussed with Austin Whitman, CEO of climate neutral industry efforts to go green or achieve carb climate neutral rather status Mr. Whitman. Welcome to the program. Thanks David it's crispy here. I very much welcome Mr Whitman's BIOS across posted on the podcast website on background collectively termed sub nationals, numerous academic institution states, cities, and local governments, companies NGOs, and other enemies across the country have pledged to become climate neutral. Journey this means that our greenhouse gas emissions our carbon footprint are completely offset by consuming or funding renewable energy resources and or funding reforestation or other carbon sequestration efforts. Though the healthcare benefits of reducing carbon emissions are crystal clear as I'm not previously be of this podcast healthcare providers in federal industry regulators are climate nihilists. They have been some ignored this issue despite the fact after the food industry healthcare is the largest amount of carbon dioxide equivalent. It over six, hundred, fifty, million metric tons annually or approximately ten percent of the US greenhouse gas emissions. As I've noted previously per research published in plus one four years ago, Mount Sinai research concluded. Health harm caused by the healthcare industries carbon emissions causes upwards of ninety, eight, thousand deaths per year just in the US. In addition, the US healthcare industry substantially lags behind other prominent US industries in publicly reporting their carbon emissions. Two weeks ago however Kaiser Permanente, the US's largest integrated nonprofit healthcare provider, and now it had achieved carbon neutral status. Meeting the organization had a raised as eight hundred, thousand tonne carbon footprint. Or Eight, hundred, thousand tons emitted annually. As. Kaiser noted in his nine fourteen press release quote unquote as physicians climate changes absolutely in our lane. Kaiser's the first healthcare system in the US to achieve status and listeners may recall interviewed Kaiser's Kathy Gerwig. Regarding her own. Climate. Neutral efforts in. May of Twenty nineteen. With me again to discuss corporate efforts to go green is climate neutral CEO Austin Whitman. So. Awesome of that as background, let me begin by asking you if you could provide a brief overview of your organization. Yeah well. Great, David I love that background because what you've done is I think shown a spotlight on something that needs to change and we hope it will change in the sense that climate is an overarching challenge that for anyone not to see it as their challenge. Is really mistake and one of the encouraging signs that I've seen in the last few years is that more and more people are taking note of the challenge and really picking it up as something that they've got to think about in their in their day to day climate. Neutral. we started a year and a half ago really with the basic sort of with basic problem in line to which is that consumer pick up any consumer on the street and them what they've been told to do To help, reverse or address climate change and people will probably tell you. Well, I know that I should stop eating meat and I know that I drive an electric car and I know that I should fly less. And maybe some other things too and one of the interesting things is if you if you think about those three, are you eating meat is pretty obvious when you pick up before you can say You know I'm eating a steak where I'm eating a banana driving cars pretty obvious and are you flying is pretty obvious as well, and and unfortunately those those three things only address a small chunk of the total carbon that each of us is responsible for, and that's because all the things the objects that we rely on day to day are the product of a fossil fuel intensive production chain or value chain, which we call kind of a carbon trail that stretches around the world. and. So the best the best idea we could come up with to deal with this is to create a label just like a USDA organic label that would indicate to consumer the climate impacts of something that they buy. So we can sort of turn the money that people spend on stuff. When it's not obvious like a, you know a steak versus a banana when it's not obvious what the climate impacts of something that they buy are we can. We can put a label on it that says, you know did the company that made that thing measure it's carbon emissions. Carbon that they were responsible for frowned producing that thing and bringing it to the customer, and then did they take steps to offset that carbon offset also known as remove or purchase a carbon? And we can get into those technical details at some point is you want And then are they working on plans to reduce their carbon emissions? So this is sort of the the basic designation that we came up with and the label launched officially in June of last year, we recruited about one hundred forty companies to get certified. which was going to happen from January to April of this year with the pandemic I feared the worst but actually turned out to be the best we ended up getting one hundred and fifty companies certified by the end of it so. One of the things we learned from that was yes, there's a pandemic if anything it has sort of reinforced the idea that there's a shared vulnerability across all of us that we really need to. You know we really need to to get together and figure out in the cases cove. It's obvious. It's public health flying in the case of climate. It's obvious. It's environmental one so. We certified one hundred fifty brands were now in the midst of recruiting more companies to get certified for. Twenty Twenty I. Guess The final detail I would add would be were restructured a nonprofit and Mission is simply to decrease global carbon emissions and to engage consumers brands to make that happen.

Dallas - Food Banks Say USDA Program Helped But More Money Invested In SNAP Needed

"A half more dollars will be given to a program providing fresh food to food bags. But the director of government relations for the North Texas food Bank, Valerie Hawthorne, Says it's only a short term solution. She'd rather see the money go to the snap program used to be called the Food stamp program. She's advising people who've lost their jobs because of the Corona virus to see if they now qualify for snap. Right now, there's a lot of flexibility and waivers that make people eligible to receive snap. And they're getting the maximum benefit for their household so they will be receiving more money than normal. Under this program authorities this snap is a long term program that helps boost local economies by getting people out of the food bank parking lots and into the growth. Now,

"You guys. I was reading through the website a little bit before and read somewhere that sells philosophy is based on Charles Eisenstein Sacred Economics cures like we say guy, what's sacred economics? Shots philosopher been very influential on work. We've been doing you know I. Think we can chat about some of the concepts that he introduced that. We think this technology brought to life at a at a big scale. I think one thing maybe for people who are new to settle into the community maybe let me just kind of lay out of the community tenants that we kind of set for the work that everyone is doing and that. kind of in a way make sure people have a sense for what Selah stands for independent new regardless of where the building and what kind of application they building, how looking to kind of use the platform those attendance are designing for all big one loss. You know you brought up finish choosing but think it's less about just puny focusing on tradition inclusion but it's designing a system that is truly accessible to everyone and I think by focusing on communities that are more excluded today, you actually have a shot at having ultimately something that that is accessible to everyone can work for everyone set the first one. The second one is innovating on money, which is kind of. Vein of Prima money and I think this is where you see some of the. Ideas that shots introduced in among other things. Book Cigarette Mixing Charles has been an advisor Selah which has been awesome but I think when you look at the history of money, you see it hasn't really changed the sixteen hundreds, and now we have this opportunity to really kind of actually change what money is that what it can the benefit can bring to communities in. So with that looking at really revisiting the future of money, and of course, we're starting in a much more pragmatic place, stable coins, digital that represent Fiat currencies but you know in the future we see currencies take different shape and you know concepts like natural currencies are things that are really interesting to us. Related to that striving for beauty attendant that is important. You know when you create isn't GonNa make the world in maybe a little bit cheesy. But more beautiful places that actually bringing things that will bring joy in value to communities and just someone who's debating whether they want to be part of community think seeing that and thinking about the things that they. Want to build gifts for more information at the last one. This is maybe one that does feel even more important in today's kind of times. This is about humidity embodying your mentality that has helped us. You know I think we if you talk to us get you know this already I mean we don't pretend we know all the answers have all the answers. Certainly like the undertaking of the mission, for Sallow, to have a better financial system that allows prosperity for everyone, it's not something that smoke with people can just build and roll out and like grow, but it is a team after it's an effort of a growing community, a lot of people being involved over the world to shape that drive that and so the best way to kind of go about it by asking questions by showing vulnerability humility, those are the the broader tenets for several. In addition to those tenants. Have a separate vision statement for the future. Some specific target you're looking to achieve or is it more that you owner achieve something that brings about financial inclusion and like mobile in the world and? So, tell, US, mission at its core is to build a financial system that creates the conditions for prosperity for everyone, and the way that we're doing that is by building a permission lists platform that makes financial tools accessible to anybody with a mobile phone, and maybe those also taking a step back for those who are. What hello can concretely it's a preface state platform that is fully compatible. I would say that there are three key innovations that help us and if achieve this mission, each of which were really specifically chosen to make fellow more usable to someone using it via mobile phone. Has. A CLIENT PLUTO, which leads mobile devices think chain can endure instantly. The current version that we've launched requires certain about seventeen thousand times, less data to sink than a traditional espe- based like client and these soon to launch SNARK based version of this will be one point seven, million times more efficient, and this allows anybody on a mobile phone. To sink in a fully peer manner with the chain in a police censorship assistant manner. There's no need for something like in fuhrer to be able to connect with the chain from your mobile device. Secondly, fellow has a stable coin that's native to the platform called fellow dollars or C. USD Algorithm Mick and Crypto collateralized. been currently, there's about just over six million, US the circulation, the network launched and the number been growing steadily since launch. This is collateralized with around two hundred, twenty million dollars worth of trip to assets which include fellow the native acid on the platform bitcoin and if and then critically even the USDA is implemented. As a token on the platform, you can actually pay for transaction fees with Tokens on the platform. So you can actually pay transaction fees with the US. And then finally stellar has an on chain PKI which maps. Phone numbers or Hashes phone numbers to public keys in Wallet addresses so that people can find each other really easily by phone number, and so this allows people to send payments to anyone in their contact with even if the recipient hasn't even. Create an account on this network, and so these three things can have taken in unison really allow us to build a really great mobile kind of experiences that are

"What's happening? Interesting year I'd say. Let's make sense out of tennis in. Late. August two, thousand twenty. Where to begin here because usually we do these things and we well, you know in Cincinnati Sheila and the week before that, she looked why she's coming off a Wimbledon fourth-round. I got nothing here. I. Mean. We're I. Guess You know what? Let's. Let's start with. Let's start with social justice is a moving target but obviously, we're doing this on Thursday when there is no tennis at the tennis center mostly because of Naomi socket you let's just. I think Reagan outpaced by news you to. Top line outs. Just amazed at this young lady and how she has really. Grown into the person and the leader that she is I mean we saw her two years ago, John Win, a US Open under controversial circumstances almost crying when she got the trophy not the happy tears by the way we saw her not comfortable in the spotlight. And we've seen her truly in this past year really just blossom into this amazing leader and I, you know I think we thought that it was possible but I didn't think at this young age in her early twenties that she would be the type of player person who would be leading our sport and it's amazing to see. We haven't had player willing to sacrifice really willing to. Do whatever necessary for the greater good and look past. Oh by tennis or my match or anything else put all of that ahead to make a bigger impact in it's amazing. I. Mean Honestly yesterday as all these stories kept coming through I was getting the chills and then she was just amazing just doesn't this is important and you know what happened. It forced that forced it allowed me to bring it up with my young kid something that maybe that I don't know what would have happened I'm talking to a six year old about why this is going on in the world and a lot of that is because of nine soccer. I think too that she had a lot of people within tennis scrambling. And someone said to me, I do radio shows lead said, well, isn't she the highest paid female athlete and Michael Do? That is like, yeah, all the more reason for her not to do like since when does that cut your way of anything that makes it all the more impressive that many business relationships that she needs to keep in mind I Did you have any insight what brought this on mean you know there's she gives it here. She's self identified. There's boyfriend there's yolks he was in Minneapolis. You any insight as to what? Spurred us. Not. Really you know I was fascinated during the pandemic lockdown about hearing in. About her going to Minnesota and being willing. To take such a strong stand honestly during a pandemic and we have so many crazy things going on right now and I was I remember thinking wow, that is really remarkable from her. And then when this all came about. You know my first reaction was well, I can't believe it, and then about five minutes later I'm like, yeah good for her and you know the the support of everybody in the tennis world from what I've seen so far at least on social media and other platforms, it's remarkable and I think that everybody knows. Now I mean we've had players in the seventies, lead us and be willing to sacrifice, and be will link to walk away and willing to fight for the greater. Good. A lot of that kind of went away and there was. All of a sudden, you get a player again that's like, nope, this is way more important than my tennis or anything else. I think that she she had the respect of everyone the tennis world she's now earned it from you know other people around the world. And all this is in the context of a major seventy, two hours away and nobody's going anywhere. Everybody's going. You've thought like give it was going to fly to a different destination I mean she's doing this when everybody is in. Lockdown Where are you? If there's a continuum here? We have this among our colleagues. Some people say, this is not this is reckless come back in twenty twenty one and other people say shows got to go on we don't even need. This bubble where are you sort of in the? Spectrum. You know when I first heard about these kind of plans these in I think it was about may of us Ta's maybe thinking about doing it in a bubble and I remember going wow, that's crazy. I can't believe that you've got all these people find him from all over the world. It's not as simple as everyone based in the states and figuring this out then each step of the way, everything nope this is going to be fine players can fly in from overseas. This is what we have organized is now hearing from players that are in this bubble for like the last two weeks hearing from people that are playing in the Cincinnati. Tournament in New York If, I were current player and I was experiencing that I don't think I'd play outside bubble now. They're talking about you know Rome minute robes out some kind of paper that going over their rules where they strongly the players don't go out to eat. Yes. That should be a rule I mean that's the kind of the behavior that could really bring down tournaments I mean unfortunately, if you WANNA play, you're going to have to really kind of be in a bubble and. You WanNa make sure everyone else around you is also though in a bubble so you don't pick it up from them or from their coach from their hidden partner from their trainer. So I think this this tournament can these tournaments continue to go through without anything crazy happening with no really positive results in the virus not spreading and then the US being able to contain it. I don't see how you don't. I. Don't see how you can play not in a bubble for the rest of of this pandemic. That's a real real reversal. I, mean it used to be I can't the USDA's being so strict and these these guidelines are oppressive. You're saying the opposite you're saying you go to Europe and these players are going to say, wait a second why are their fans walking around the grounds? That would be me and I'm obviously the eat everyone I mean we saw hal help scared to go into a bubble. So everybody has their own their own comfort level. If it were me I would not feel comfortable playing a tournament where I know that everyone could have gone out to dinner or could have gone to a nightclub and then be within six feet of me. The next day that is me so we'll see I mean in Europe, the cases went down it sounds like they're starting to pick up. Again, this virus is not going anywhere anytime soon. So to think that their past it or it's not going to happen, you can't have that mindset. You have to have the mindset if we're organizing something that it's around, how do we get? Away with not having it get into our atmosphere. It's it's a bubble life unfortunately.

'Tiger King' zoo closes after feds suspend its license

"And I promised you a little bit of news on the Tiger King. Which Tyre King News. Well, I know we love it. I mean, anybody who hasn't who Hasn't watched it to yourself a favour and do it. I mean, the first episode you go. What am I doing right? By the second episode, you're just kind of sucked in, and this was a huge hit. For Netflix. It was a documentary about the Tiger King Joe exotic and apparently the zoo that was featured in that documentary, Victoria. Announced late Tuesday that it is closed to the public. And can you imagine what that was like? After the federal animal exhibition license was suspended? The U. S Department of Agriculture said that it suspended the exhibitor license. For Greater Winwood Exotic Animal Park and Jeffrey Loh Hu was featured in the Netflix series on Monday. Both low and Joe exotic were among the characters in that Netflix Siri's Tiger King murder may have madness. Opposed to the park's Facebook page announced that public access to the privately owned zoo is closed. Effectively. Effective immediately. The new park will, at least for the future. Be a private film set for a Tiger king related television content for cable and streaming services. Now we know Nicolas Cage has signed on to do this. The report of the U. S is going. Oh, my God. You know what I could for her? I don't have Sharknado in my world anymore, but that's gonna be my name. Sharknado Tiger NATO. The report of the USDA DEA inspection at Winwood found multiple animal welfare violations really serious and Several repeat violations. Among those inspectors found the on ly refrigerated storage for animal food was a broken refrigerator truck that do, officials claimed had recently been fixed. The inspector's asked for the invoices on repairs, and they were handed an invoice for a tractor. Repair in the Facebook post apart, claimed it had been targeted by animal rights groups. Now I believe all of these things are true. I believe they have been targeted by animal rights groups, and in fact, Joe Exotic is working with Peter now from jail to try toe. Tippy toe off to all of these things, and there are according to reports spies in the area. But I also believe that they're probably pretty poor conditions at this part because we saw it in In footage and it's been going on for years. It's interesting. The one of the details which is pretty awful about this, the fact that that these that they've been targeted by animal rights groups Now having this license revoked this. This is actually bad news for the animals because having it being closed to the public means that the animals are no longer subjected to inspections, USDA inspections or pita. So I This is not great news for the animals that Jeffrey Loh Hu if you watch the serious he's sleazy Vegas guy in like the Ed Hardy T shirts with the You know, his wife in the nanny and the whole thing anyway.

Netflix's 'Tiger King' was watched by 34 million viewers in the US in 10 days, according to Nielsen

"Tiger King on Netflix was watched by 34 million people in the 1st 10 days after it was released, making it one of the most popular series of all times. It was about this little known Area in the world. Life of zookeeper Joe exotic on people who collect animals and have these little roadside zoos that we're going to talk about. Joe Exotic was accused and convicted of exploiting wild animals and also plotting to kill another conservationists who campaigned against him. He sentenced to 22 years in prison. And Ah, well, I I want to talk a little bit about. Why can you buy a tiger? Can you imagine you can buy a tiger cub for as little as $2000? Why was this guy allowed to run this roadside zoo with seem like no regulation by the government. And are there laws And why aren't there laws to protect these beautiful wonderful animals? Joining us is not really the foremost expert in the country. On this topic. Kearney and Nasserist serves as the director and assistant clinical professor of animal welfare at Michigan State College of Law. She runs Klaus Consulting on has a great podcast called Tiger Talk. Welcome to the show. Carney. How are you? I'm fine. Thank you for having me so excited to talk about this topic because it's just fascinating and let me at first ask you. How were you involved in the Joe exotic thing at all in any way, shape or form? I'm the attorney who pitched the wildlife trafficking case the federal prosecutors against him so suddenly, the murder for hire thing didn't happen until after the K five hits with already under investigation for a couple of years, you know, he was charged with multiple counts of illegal trafficking. He's charged with multiple counts of illegally killing Haider violate teenager thinking back and That's already been underway. So, yeah, I mean, I was pretty neck deep in it, actually. So you know, being involved in the animal law world as I assume you are you knew about Joe exotic. You knew about what he was doing there and people in the in that milieu knew what he was doing. Is that right? Sort of robotic has long been, you know, on the top at the top of the list of the most notorious abuser than a goiter of big cats in the country, So you know, he all of the things that made for a great reality show that a lot of people who wanted to watch it during quarantine or the things that we had already known about been accustomed to you for one time, But I told people I live in New Orleans, you know? After you've seen that person you have painted themselves head in gold body caves and thinking on top of the stair on Bourbon Street. It's not there. No wow. Factor left any more. And the same is true for Joan thought it We've been after him for a long, long time. So you know, Chicago here has two world class ooze. We have Brookfield Zoo. I grew up very close. I could almost hear I actually when the wind was blowing right, you could hear some of the noises from the animals. And then we have Lincoln Park Su another beautiful city zoo, and I had never heard of a roadside zoo. I mean, I never understood that someone could just open up. Zoo without having certain regulations. Now tell me are there now regulations that would prohibit a Joe exotic from acquiring big, beautiful animals and putting them in a zoo? Like a menagerie of animals, capped by unqualified people who just collected animals that they want to open their doors in charge. If anybody can get us life in, um like from the U. S Department of Agriculture, which is the threshold entry point in order to get animals to the public and the application of the $30 That is really what hate you open a road pie deal. If you pass a pre lightened infection know that you're probably only going to be some feel about One infection per year in the U. S. D a very understaffed. It's notorious even in his own internal auditing department for failing to enforce applicable regulations, which are very, very low standards of care. Like Do the animals have water? Do they have food? Do they get veterinary care? Then they stand up, turn around and lie down on DNA with Russell, you know, And so in a, for example, like in a state like Illinois The law states that you know you cannot own. There can't be any private ownership of of the danger of exotic animals. Not great. Sounds like a prohibition. It is not really in practice because all it requires to circumvent that prohibition is to get that USDA license tell the federal agency that you have some future plan couldn't get an animal to the public. Pay your $30 half your initial infection and rock and roll and keep those animals so a lot of loopholes in victim lives on nine Good point, Illinois. But in fact, there are four things that don't have any regulation whatsoever. Existing federal laws are fraught with the pole that are really easy to circumvent. And that's why we've seen the proliferation of roadside menagerie that can operate on DH. The proliferation the pirate in particular. Let's go back to that this issue of the laws and changing the laws and all of that, but You're telling me you pay your $30 you go through these preliminary steps, and you can get a baby Tiger. If I wanted to do that, Carney if I just said, OK, I really like these cute little tiger's My my house. Pets from the DuPage animal shelter are just not doing it for me and I and I going to qualify and I get where do I go? And how much do I have to pay to get a tiger coming in? And how hard would it be for me to do that? You may have paid more and your tax deductible donation to the shelter for your rescue dogs. You have to pay to get a tiger. You know, I know that like I paid a few $150 donation to the shelter where I rescued my grumpy old 14 years ago. Um, you can get a tiger for a couple 100 bucks. They're even free, really, and people working on the Internet. Or using the network of roads by do that are going to dump animals month. They've become too big that once they reach that passed that threshold age where they can no longer be used for the extremely lucrative cub handling called pay to play photo op bottle feeding. Twin like tigers experience. Is that the right I do love you so lucrative. Um, once we're done with that, because the animal Barda financial and safety liability and nothing when they get dumped and feed about a pet trade so often recently there was a classified publication. It was a monthly publication and very mom and pop type of day. Anybody could have tried to it and you would be Lifting every single month. Like one ad, it was involving animal option. It was road five You're looking for or looking to dump animal. Whether they're tigers, lions, bears, monkeys, other primate, zebras, giraffes. You need it. You could find it in the animal finding God.

The First Dog With COVID-19 Has Died, And There's A Lot We Still Don't Know

"April when buddies family I started to notice that something was a bright buddy started breathing really heavily, any hadn't mucus knows, and this was the first thing is family notice that you know the first sign that he was not himself. That's Natasha daily a wildlife reporter with National Geographic. Buddy was a German shepherd who Natasha says by his family's account was a very, very good boy. He loved running through sprinklers, Keitel's love like running and diving right into the lake. His family loved address them up for Halloween, is also photos of him in a bunny costume and you know he's just it looks like he's just grinning at the camera and so when buddies started getting sick this spring, just before his seventh birthday, his family, Robert Allison Mahoney and their daughter Juliana. While, they were worried I mean he'd be completely healthy, and then all of a sudden in the sprain he. started. Struggling to breathe and the first thing. I thought was he has the virus. Meaning the corona virus in the reason they thought that. They had also been sick. So specifically, Robert Mahoney, the husband had tested positive Alison Mahoney. Robert's wife had not been tested, but she was showing symptoms. So she had it to. The daughter Juliana who's thirteen tested negative. But when it came to getting buddy attest, that was a lot harder. But he's regular vet wasn't seeing patients. The Vet significantly said, there's no, he has like just you know there's no way and he prescribed the antibiotics over the phone. Another vets gave buddy ultrasound and x rays. But also didn't think he could have the krona virus remember no dog had yet tested positive in the US. And many vets didn't have the tests for animals anyway. But one day. Robert, Mahoney sister saw facebook post about a vet where they lived on. Staten. Island that had just gotten some test kits. Robert. was like great like let me call right now. Get down there, make an appointment, and so he was able to make an appointment for ten PM on a Friday. So it was a very strange time, but it was the clinic was really busy, and so it was the the first law they had available. That was Friday. May Fifteenth a full month after he started showing symptoms a few days later, but he finally got test that revealed. He was positive. This was a huge deal. Buddy was the first dog in the US known to have the virus and the USDA announced the news in a press release on June second. Buddy wasn't named in that press release. The government only identified his breed. In fact, we only know the details of his story because of Natasha's reporting. The USDA said in. June, that quote the dog is expected to make a full recovery. But Buddy didn't get better. He got more and more sick in June. It. All came to a head one weekend in July. And a warning that the details coming up are pretty tough to hear. So Allison. Came downstairs the morning of July eleventh and found buddy in the kitchen in a pool of modeled flood He was throwing up blood. It was coming from his nose. It was just horrific and devastating for the family, and at that point, they brought him into the vet and the decision was made to euthanize him which was obviously really really difficult on top of two and a half months of stress and confusion that the family had already been through thirteen dogs and eleven cats have tested positive in the US for cove nineteen according to public. Records and while those numbers sound small, they raise big questions about how virus can affect people and their pets. Today's episode. Natasha. Daily on why. Some of those questions are still so hard to answer. Allison Mooney said to me that you tell someone that your dog tested positive for Cova. Did they'd look at you like you had ten heads. You know there's no rubric for navigating covert in your pet. I'm Emily Quang and you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. First off the current CDC guidance that there is no evidence that pets can transmit the coronavirus to humans, and that's partially why testing for animals isn't more widespread. We do need to say to that test for animals are different than the test used to detect the virus in humans. All animal tests are processed in different labs are processed in veterinary labs. Not, there's no overlap between human testing and animal testing. So. While some of the mechanics of the tests may be the same. It's not at all taking resources away from humans. But because a covid positive animal isn't seen as a danger to humans, there's been very little scientific study of how the virus can affect those pets or even how it can interact with other diseases are pets may have. That's where we're going to pick up buddy story with an Tasha daily. Yes. So new blood work was taken on July tenth the day before a buddy died, and it was on July eleventh when the Mahoney's brought buddy in. To essentially be euthanized that they found the results of that blood work on and the blood work indicated that he very very likely had lymphoma, which is kind of cancer, right? Yes. Lymphoma is a type of cancer So I I asked a couple of veterinarians who were not involved in buddies case at all to review his full records and they said that, yes, every single one of the symptoms he had could be explained by lymphoma, you know A. A big open question is deity SARS Yovany to present clinically in buddies body, and what that means is did the virus cause any symptoms? For example, the trouble breathing was, and so I think it's it's tough and we'll never have an answer to this was every single. One of his symptoms are the lymph, Oma? Or was some of it, the COVID and the breakdown of fat isn't something that we have an answer to, and you also pose the question. Will. We won't know whether the cancer made them more susceptible to contracting the coronavirus exactly, and that's sort of a big takeaway from his case You know our dogs or cats with underlying conditions like cancer as it turns out. More likely to contract the virus because we know humans are humans It's thought that humans that have suppressed immune systems maybe more likely to contract the virus, but not only that maybe the virus may be more likely to present in ways that are more significant in their bodies if if they're already immuno-compromised. So the same question remains for animals and we just have so little data to investigate it.

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. States includes twelve dogs, ten cats, a tiger and a lion. The agency says there is currently no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the corona virus, but it appears the virus can spread from people to animals in some situations.

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?

The Nutrition Diva's Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous

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.

Restoring the American Chestnut

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

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.

"DJ said, nah, cool. I'm staying witty, you know, or if it's filled that there would have been their whole camp to that just would have been air. You know what? We're good. Thanks. All right. 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. And hey, how much is the players is the players purse going up. Oh, no, no. That we weren't planning on raise the dead like. So let me give it a one point one billion dollar TV contract and you weren't going to raise the purse. Okay. So the for the for the patron let me give you what the money was a USA. Senate twelve year, one point one billion dollar contract is Michael Luda with FOX beginning in two thousand fifteen the US US, Jay writes, now, listen to this. This is where it's big this where they had the contention, one point one Bill for twelve years. The rights went from thirty seven million a year with NBC and ESPN two ninety three million a year with FOX almost chill full think about those triple. They said that the person should be between fifteen and eighteen million dollars versus ten and twelve and they went as far as to have a meeting with the US. The figure out where the money was going. How are you using this money to grow the game because you're not doing it and originally the players were getting about twenty five percent of the TV money. Right. Yeah. About twenty five percent is what they were getting to the math did Natta but one point one percent so then they have this meeting and players quoted..

"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. Yes. And we don't want people getting fooled into spending extra money extra hard. Earn money on products. That have no meaningful difference. You know? So a good way to get around. 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. Because most of the time is not a meaningful difference. And if.

We want to be able to continue to do the good work. We've been doing beef demand is an all time high and that very much is in part due to the check off.

"To the addiction of the wise just a few reporters tended grant and other black farmer advocates say even though the usda admitted widespread discrimination when it settled the pig lawsuit in nineteen ninety nine it did not hold any employees accountable i never have understood why people did not become outraged when the government settled with black farmers in nineteen ninety nine and not one agent lost ajar actually they got promoted not one several employees we asked the usda if anyone was ever fired after the findings in the pig for settlement they didn't answer that question or any other that we put to them so i went to the guy who is at the top during much of this time i set up an interview with tom ville sack secretary of agriculture during president obama's two terms he said he didn't know about the wise case and couldn't comment on it directly but he says if paul and nichols or someone else in the f office manipulated eddie wise production numbers that's a violation of agency rules if there was no justification in no reason to change the number from ten to eight that's certainly is you know something that sounds unusual certainly to something that wouldn't in my view wouldn't pass the smell test if that's in fact what happened phil sack told me because of the departments history of discrimination he ordered training at county offices and tighten procedures making sure farmers who came in asking for services were given a receipt so they could prove they'd ask for help when filing complaints and bill sack received a monthly report from the depa office of civil rights and what i can tell you is that we saw substantial reduction in the number of program complaints this these would be people coming in and saying that they weren't being treated fairly so we did see progress that is not to say that there can't be a circumstance or situation where for whatever reason something goes know goes awry because you're dealing with ninety thousand employees ninety one hundred thousand employees eddie son is also named edward wise with the family calls ronnie i went to see him at his home in a quiet semi rural part of prince george's county maryland ronnie is a career police officer in washington dc he's powerfully built like his father and shares his dad's love of growing things the garden is is behind this behind the shed and in what i haven't i haven't front with the raised beds we do back back behind behind the shit being back here is like being back is close to north carolina is get without being in north carol carolina and ronnie recently turned fifty two age that would have allowed him to retire with full benefits my goal was fifty this year was the sort heading back home to sis my father with the farm he always talked about being passed down something because his parents never gave him anything there there was nothing to pass the pass on this was my my heart's desire like i said i've been trying to get back north carolina it looks like my mom back she there's nothing to go back to last was the whole thrust in my life that's what i worked on a pass that was a done deal but i came pass them on to him that the government's taken on a holiday hawed even think about.
