The restless ones is now available on the iHeart radio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren boga bomb here. It's possible you've heard of a mink, and it's also possible that the thing that pops into your head when you hear that word is a fur coat. But of course, a natural fur coat is made of animal skins. In the parlance of our times, a mink is a coat, and astronomically expensive one at that. Made of the pelts of a type of weasel also called a mink, which is captured or raised in captivity for the purpose of providing rich people with cozy outerwear. But what makes mink first, such a desirable material for glamorous jackets. And why we've been trapping and wearing minks since at least the 11th century, is also what helps a mink survive in the wild. A two species of mink exist on the Planet Earth today. The third, the sea mink is now extinct due to a couple of centuries of persecution by fur trappers. Both surviving species have thick, soft, water repellent fur. Nas did the extinct bank. Both the American mink and the critically endangered European mank are semi aquatic, meaning they stick close to waterways, streams, rivers, wetlands, lakes, et cetera, aware they can find all the foods they like to eat best. Frogs, birds, clams, eggs, aquatic insects, and small animals, like rabbits and mice. They love slinking around rocky riverbanks in the early morning and evening. And during the heat of the day, repairing to their luxurious multi chambered burrows lined with grass fur and feathers. They're extremely tricky to trap because they're smart and suspicious. But we humans are, if nothing else, great devising ingenious ways of killing stuff. So we've managed to put mink in a precarious position. The American mink is doing pretty well in the wild. They can be found in parts of every state in the United States except Arizona, and aren't uncommon throughout their natural range. In fact, they're also not uncommon in other places in the world, including the traditional range of the European mink, which is native to Europe and Eurasia. American men were brought to Europe in the early 20th century, in order to satisfy the European passion for fur garments. And by the 1950s, at least 400 registered mink fur farms existed in the UK alone, all stocked with American mink, the species of choice for the fur industry, since their larger body than the European species, and their coats are a bit longer and denser. But it's perhaps predictably difficult to hold a weasel captive, and the American mink that had spent a few generations on European farms escaped and became naturalized citizens of Europe. And it turns out they were very aggressive toward the locals. A feral farm raised mink and their offspring began killing European mink and their kids. Before the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke with doctor inigo's bergia, a researcher in the department of environmental studies at Icarus in Lauren yo Spain. He said, it is important to consider that feral American mink is not the same as Native American mink in North America. A feral American mink is like a new species created by humans after decades of breeding in captivity. They do not behave in the same way as wild American mink in their native range. An example of altered behavior in Ferrell American mink in Europe has to do a territory. A wild male animals of both species are normally very territorial, and don't put up with other males sharing their area. Feral American mink, on the other hand, don't seem to mind sharing space with each other. Zerbo goitia said, in this way, in rivers where it was once possible to find one European mink male and between three and four females, you can now find as many as 30 American mink. The predation pressure in the area is extremely strong. As a result of this ecological debacle, the European mink is one of the most endangered animals in Europe. The population has plummeted by over 50% in the past decade, and although competition from the American mink certainly isn't helping matters, European mank are also hunted by humans, and have long been the victims of human driven habitat loss. Activists and researchers are working against the clock to save the species. Meanwhile, mink farms flourish worldwide, mink accounts for 85% of the global fur trade, and fur is still a popular material in oak tour. As recently as 2016, two thirds of major fall fashion week shows worldwide included fur. The mink for industry in the United States grosses around $300 million a year. There are farms in 23 states, but a few European countries outstrip America's farmed for production. Meanwhile, the mink for business is booming in China, a country with a lot of newly wealthy citizens in the market for luxury items. Coupled with very few animal welfare regulations. But anti fur activists take note, simply releasing farmed mink into the wild, won't do them any favors. In 2017, two animal rights activists released between 30,040 thousand mink from a fur farm in Minnesota. Most of the mink that immediately due to heat or killed each other when recollected in different social groupings. As with many issues, focusing on educating the public and contacting your governmental representatives to.

Thanks to katie dartford for the news. There are now to this week's interview which comes to us from guinea where you and health agency. Experts are on the ground supporting authorities and keeping the lid on deadly marburg virus. It's being reported in geck ado prefecture in southwest guinea and. It's the first known case. In the country and west africa to talk about the prevention measures underway. I spoke to the world health organization's representative in guinea. Dr george ki-zerbo really significant event. Jeez arising in for the first time in west africa also mother virus is rally from the same family as virus which causes a bulla. it is usually stipulating in animal populations but sometimes by accident and be passed to human populations and then from person-to-person. I close contact with body fleas blood or in setting so it is an event that he's ready serious in guinea but also in the region because of the cross border implications with liberia and sierra leone. Said what do you think to stop it. That's being one fatality. So far contactors probably. Yes the rest. I teams are working at points of entry sierra leone liberia the person at the have been equipped and trained and also the communities are being engaged because these communities are billeting there. There's a lot of mobility for people going to market. We're going to family events. So sensitized station of community so that they can take all the precautions especially avoiding attaching. Ill people avoiding also large gatherings especially for funerals which are very very dangerous events where people can come into contact with a dead body and then say the infection contact racine. He's also ongoing. We have one hundred fifty context but maybe five hundred irish which would be a monitor for twenty one days which is the maximum period of incubation. Make sure that they're not abiding writers and then quickly. George where are these contacts being monitored in their own isolated from the rest of the families and supported including food and over means of hygiene and repetitive measures. So that we can stay at for twenty one days and avoid transmitting these. That sounds very promising. Can we just talk about the potential for confusion of marburg with their below and other diseases and other infections i mean. How confident are you that it won't be spread because it's not initially easy to diagnose something like marburg is it a missile to communities really any few any lights syndrome really concert as soon as possible and be tested. I think this is a key message. Mahbubug is different from because there's no known treatment of vaccine so so we can only stop it for very very robust prevention community and talking about the community. How do you get their trust. Because you're coming in from the outside with the greatest of respect. What does it take to really involve the community in combating. Something like mullebeck is what we did was really to enroll social anthropologists but community health workers also and risk communication staff. Who are some of them are from the community. Some of them are actually speaking the same language so they can use that proximity community to engage leaders at the community level. The elders remand the young people from the community and pass. The message is in a way that can be understood and that is in line with the social cultural perception of this community. So i think this is something that has worked in recent worldwide. Demme who were able to stop fishing informers even as now another left in iowa. We've potential epidemiology link. We've never invested so really community. Engagement is a key in these outright responses talking if ebola in guinea and the new cote d'ivoire outbreak alert and not forgetting the twenty thirteen to sixteen epidemic in guinea sierra leone and liberia.

"Hey, exact. You're listening to the best advise show and it's Friday food. Friday. My name is Andrew Scerbo. I am the chef and Creator behind for mental state wage for Andrew. Fermentation is a very practical way for him to feel better. But it's also a metaphor for this piece of advice that keeps coming up on this show. Yeah, so I just started realizing that with any big Improvement in my life, whether it was like learning a new skill like playing guitar or, you know, I'm a magician as well or weight loss or gain, you know, learning how to lift weights at the gym. It was always like small change over time yields, the greatest transformation and I applied that idea to food and like, that's what fermentation is. It just small change over time. So it's just like making the small tweaks, daily can lead you into like the greatest changes. And that's why I chose to get into fermentation. The brain in your gut are connected by this vagus nerve and it's like kind of interesting. So, whatever feed your gut will eventually like, go up its way to the vagus nerve in affect your brain. So if you're eating like crap, all the time, eventually you're going to become depressed and foggy, and exhausted off, and then conversely, you know, like if something scary happens to you or you get really bad news or if you meet someone that's like, you know, gives you butterflies for instance, like you're going to feel that your stomach doesn't have the ability just like laugh or feel like you know a joke is funny or something like that but you know everyone's experience those moments where like you feel like this pit in your stomach. When you hear something uncomfortable or you know what I mean? I think like when you're stressed out you know you can definitely feel that happening and I feel like that's why people sometimes get stomach ulcers and all these things from stress. So it's like if you try to calm yourself down, And you find ways to do that, whether it's exercise or meditation or whatever you can actually, like, you know, control what's happening in your stomach better than if you were to, like, let the stress get to You song, and that's why I say like, don't stress about your gut house just feed it. Well, you know, feature get well and they'll both work together throughout this like most likely Highway between your brain and your stomach, you know, back when your brain and gut are kind of feeling the best, what's what's happening in both of those areas, like what are you eating? And what do you thinking about? I try to. So, I pad, I mean, obviously, I took a lot of people have experienced Stress and Anxiety to a different level in the past year and half because of this pandemic. When I when it first started, I was like definitely experiencing a lot of anxiety in a lot of stress and depression you know but I started amping up the probiotics in my life not really knowing that I was doing it. I just started eating more yogurt, a friend wage Got me drinking kefir. I love pickled vegetables. I like that sort of thing. So, I mean, I just stamped it up anyway, cuz of healthier alternatives to what I could have been eating. I noticed a shift change in my, like, mental Clarity. Like I wasn't as foggy as like I was when I was eating, not as nutrient dense. You know, different types of food and that sort of thing. But yeah, I think upping naturally occurring probiotics in your diet. Whether it's from fermented foods which I I would prefer just because I think they're more flavorful, you know, like me so for example is like one of the most flavorful on the planet even though like on its own it doesn't really taste like much when it's in something you know, it just tastes better. So like I have like this biased towards fermented foods because I think it they offer like more flavor off. Like if I take, you know, fermented blueberries. Like they taste like blueberries like in Stereo of that makes sense, you know, so like something like that where it's a lot more flavorful and then these it's got wage. Is living organisms, and if you will because of the fermentation. You can follow Andrews experiments and fermentation at fermental underscore State on Instagram. That's for mental, fermental underscore State long. It's been another week of the best advice show.
