"The ancient that were here. Why is it important to know the background of the grapes. History or lineage. Like what does that tell you when you're a winemaker. Does it affect what you do or originally and you claim the scrape the to be yours. It's indigenous suit your own from the your country to produce something from your fruit of the land will take you know what your ancestors built and also Through next generation. That was one of my first ideas working with these grapes. I wanted everybody to know that we have rapes. And we have also preserve these shifts in time and you know they always still about their was or so. It's very important to know and use what you have in your own concern. You want in your own nuts. It's one of the most important things i said. Somatic stability may explain that's referring to how stable the genes are so. They're less likely to have undergone mutation theoretically if they're stable the grape growing in bethlehem should be genetically similar if not identical to the grapes that were growing back in the days. Of jesus crazy right okay. Quick recap based on samples collected from farmers across the region did presumed that there were sixty four different grapes but it turned out. The only twenty want were genetically different. The rest were the same grapes but called different names or it just wasn't as obvious until you got them under a microscope. I want to know two names in their data collection. That fatty says are lebanese grapes. Baidu and medicate lebanon from the twenty one grapes through micro verifications or by making many batches of wine. They settled on four indigenous grapes. Three whites the buki hamdani and gender and one red melody which means mike country clearly. They're making good stuff with these. We into a lot of competitions all around the world in san francisco. Berlin also here in In his hand and the warriors one Transmits goldman it's also brandy released on and a half years ago By the luke thirty five years age also wanna going on stone. I was very glad. Because i saw that. Not the were is accepting these graves. These new graves for them because they are considered a good quality wines. So that's very successful in our field. There's something really exciting. You're working on right now. yes in the is months. Produced two types of leakier chelsea declare flavored brandy because the chilies were soaked in our brandy. Normally alcohol and mo cream which is like more with the no militant sites like creamy and Before christmas i know would produce the would be ready. I started making the articles that for businesses with realty and we have not afford the as far as nutritional maybe shopping on more than gonna throw to make beer some ideas that they have in mind overnight of new babies. Yes i like. Greens saying to a you. Have you have to change. You can't only do one thing and doing bad. I love winemaking. And it's like an old so you have a course or goes prophets of the was would be so it's like a pleasure What i love also had been fifty. So i want to reduce as much as i can. What what we can also add to have more money or mission cities. I'm doing my best to do whatever again you found a really nice balance you know something that satisfying for you as one person but also it gives back to the community use. Is this lamb mug notice.

"They rioted in arabic names. Also they use marley or xanthos something like that. So it's obvious it's his stadium graves but the winery is in israel. So it's an israeli right. Okay grapes though. The second most important from crop in palestine right after olives. They're grown pretty much everywhere in palestine. But it's concentrated mostly in the southern part of the region and that's due to the expertise of the farmers there but also because the climatic conditions there are better. You have our delicious soil. So like a mix of limestone and clay and that all comes together to create better fruit heron and bethlehem are the main grapevine growing areas and it covers about seventy five percent of that area for the case of winery. Only about two percent of the wind they make is actually made from their own grapes. And then the rest is bought from different vineyards embiid jolla in bet shemesh and the hebron area agriculture in general is really important for palestine as far as the gdp but also as far as a symbol for the culture beyond what it does for the environment and bio-diversity of the area the sector also provides job opportunities for over twenty percent of the population. What do you think winemaking is doing for palestine or for the people of palestine kind of rule. Is it playing in society right now. Versa full When we did the nora grapes. The ones from their indigenous graves. We concentrated on them because to be unique in the market and to show everybody that what role that we have here on the original. That's so now like ninety. Five percent of our expert is from these rates so we showed the world that we do have good grades with quality. And we know how to make good wines. So it's very good for the reputation of any sign that our land or attitudes and climates is a very suitable atmosphere for making would be and with wines. We have a lot of different temperatures in beijing. Nice that as much original degrades. Different also pruning systems between the old ways and the new ways so annoying. But it's time you can see it. There will be no at the end when you also want to make marketing bethlehem where jesus has been story behind the ones the country. It's easy is there ever a risk they may get out seem to exotic or it's coming from this land of conflict in you know putting that spin on it no. I don't think so. They if they wanted they already have done. It's not nobody took the role this exotic you know. No i wanna go back to your thesis because you mentioned that chrome was the first winery to work with these graves near used. These grapes from the beginning from eighteen eighty five. They took the from the farmers around bethlehem and hebron area but our randi abuse is done by the decision of the book. So the clemson always use these games but never as a one hundred percent alone they always use the as a blend. When i had the idea of making one hundred percent of local grades we did with the head of the apron. University analysis. I did it in. It's our genetic analysis. We took sixty four differently. Sam ends according to our farmers. Were presume different grapes. Different genotypes and we. We saw that. We only had twenty one note. Sixty four from these twenty one Our consultant oka closed down. Which is one of the famous lawmakers in the world any day Mike kitchens to see which Which when more suitable for winemaking from as we chose we chose only four greeks three words and one. The only read that we chose was lost is called the ballot and the three words. Were the buki hamdani engine. So we decided to bid book alone and danny gender is a blend sixty percents percent as another one so all started at their small interruption. Because i feel like a big name just kinda slipped through there and it might have gone unnoticed and it's really important to point this guy out. More italian influence comes in the form of ricardo cordella. He's a winemaking legend and has been dubbed ema goo or the wizard for his wine expertise along with his brother enzo and daughter domingo he runs the family winery velasco in umbria which is a part of italy. He's also served as a wind consultant for hundreds of different wineries across europe and the entire world for him to be bringing his knowledge and experience ticker amazon is really big deal. We'll be right back okay. So let's go back to fatty and indigenous grapes. And there was no record of these grapes before people didn't know they existed here. The ear know that they exist because it so ever yoga greece but abroad. No nobody user. Didn't know in those people. And when you say that buki grape or danny agenda they not understand. I know familiar with name of milan. Be sweeps but slowly story. Were they are all coming. You know to notice. Greeks in your thesis. You mentioned something about somatic stability. So that is that safety. Sooner that means today's grapevines are almost equal to the ancient grapevines of those same grapes. Weekend be sure you know At the time of jesus or something but most probably as these dips on the same jobs that were grown the ancient times They were always here. We still when the genetic medicine that they groped in one group they are not similar to the international once. They had that the base. Yeah we think they are.

A unique and when they came to our school and asked about Cycles aj who is interested in the same at the winemaking profession. I thought about it. And i thought it would be. You know thing for me and for my age view of night. How common is it in palestine for people to think about working in the wind field. Whether it's a winemaker or just in a winery. Is it something. That people encouraged in society like ocular. Yeah the problem that we don't have too much joiners in by the starting on the from eighteen eighty five is the first pointing a Can find one or two small wineries the jury. They always did wine.

There is some courses to study like three years in the university. I think going the abroad. And how does it work with being a winery in palestine and then also kind of sharing space with israel. Do they share information. Is it an open market. How do you run things. When there's this order between the places does not much sure to save that for example Studies that we did was. There was no cooperation. I did my thesis on bear. Local grapes unstuck. They're you know making these days before. They even their showed interest in these days. But the for example for sending we have in distributor in jerusalem and the distributor in north of deserve that the if to needs We do distribution no in the west end or serve. But it's a holy disabuse by you can buy from. Israel and israeli defense can buy goods from sites or we do everything together. For example we buy or gifts from him Still convince they're they're they're and we have another company for the city's in It's considered in. Isn't it because it's shameless.

"Exists. That was farrah baru. And now here's the episode from beef baucus. Palestine us what you have in your own country in your own lamps. Welcome back to the show. This is near listening to. It'd be for back as podcast where we talk about wine stories from the levant eastern mediterranean and the caucasus. As you probably noticed from the episode's title this show is leaving. Lebanon for the first time for this special christmas episode. We're going to palestine to a winery near bethlehem. I spoke to the winemaker. Fatty botha of kremlin winery. But before i get into that. I want to explain how episode happened and how i got connected to the twenty eight year. Old fatty by jason a palestinian american from terra sancta trading company in florida. Jason handles the us distribution of care meson along with other alcohol brands from the region. Like lebanon's covad huge and our june gin. And if you wanna learn the story behind who's revisit episode one of this podcast and for jun jin checkout a better beirut's episode ten a few months back i fell down a rabbit hole. All about palestinian indigenous grapes. One of them the marawi grape sounded a lot like the lebanese indigenous white grape meadow. Walk a little more. Digging led me to criminals on terra. Sancta so i sent an email to tear sank though asking about madonna. We and that's when jason sent over fatty stasis which documented his research on identifying the grape varieties present in palestine. We'll get into his thesis. Little later i wanna give shout out to jason for his health in making this episode happen. And i also want to warn you that the sound is a bit off because this episode was recorded over an internet. Call you see as the lebanese citizen. I can't visit occupied palestine because israel is an enemy of the state however because criminals on is the palestinian winery on palestinian territory. Communication shouldn't be considered treasonous hopefully now crummy son itself is the first winner in palestine. Dating back to eighteen. eighty five. It's owned by the monastery near bethlehem that has the same name. And the monastery is home to a salesian convent and is built on the ruins of a byzantine monastery that dates back to the seventh century. The name creamy on comes from kim johnny or kadam zanny which means the vineyard of zanny grapes zanu variety. But let's not get too caught up in everything. Let's have feddie. Tell us the story by starting off with getting situated. So where exactly is is on. Where does it fall on the map. Missouri is bitch valley called jemison. Say two hundred fifty meters above senior to get him. This from duke's five kilometers from bethel so technically it's in palestine yes the winery and the monastery still work together or what. What's how's the format. Now yes the one said. He's fargo's they are. They own a only. The management is separated from the combat. So that they have to step away. regarding the production and marketing in the management of the winery and did they let us know winery to manage our serve. But of course that the director is always wgn folder. All the money. Everything goes to this easy and so we are only managing the the wine not knowing the wigner and this is where all the italian insolence comes from. Yeah because the no this House here with established by any tiny scored on antonia bologna. Which would be orphans and give worker party. Ninety two local people and you know the help churches around bethlehem and jews areas also. The first wind started to make was the mess point. He joined the before he did on boskovic policy that he had the same vision and to be To ensure the survival of his mission he joined this reasons and organization on the houses that Became with the saudis on region. Now almost on over here. Italian or the prophet of the a loss to the mission on this uneasiness will always be with the property of the symposiums and the influence of italian. When always be noticed. So the salesian fathers don bosco on tonio baloney decided to start a winery in order to bring in funds so that they can further help orphans the school and different churches across jerusalem and bethlehem. They also do it to create job opportunities and helped the local people of the area. They still own the winery. And fatty and his team manage it. So how did you find himself. Suddenly running a winery in palestine that was started by italians Turn in two thousand and eight. When i was accepted to be part of the kazan project. I went to study the Moines making in italy and as you waited into thousand toilets but of course When three months break from the university.

"Winemaking fertile crescent to check out beef or bacchus. A podcast by for robbery. That's all about finding the best bottles where you might not expect them in just a minute. We'll join for offer the eight episodes of the series to winemaker from palestine's first winery near bethlehem. But i i caught up with harada. Ask how she got started on the series. And here's the thing you don't even have to be a wind not to get sucked and i'm just kind of curious maybe to start then just how you a little bit about your background and wine and and you know why you decided to jump into this journey of really profiling the region through wine and through the viticulture. I didn't have any formal training and wine. It wasn't something. I was doing for a long time. My trainings actually. I have a degree in biology degree in graphic design very unrelated to wine in a sense and yet they both come into play. Now that i'm studying it more and more I was working at a retail job for my family. We have a imports emporium in beirut. That's mostly american stuff from big box stores like costco and sam's and my boss slash dad told me to take over the alcohol section in wine spirits and at the time. I didn't really know anything about it. But he was like you'll figure it out. It's fine so i took a lot of intro classes inserted reading up on it so that i could know how to buy products but also know how to help customers looking for them and it was surprising that i got so into it. The subject matter was so intertwined with so many other things because in the end it is a commodity but it's also a product related to agriculture to farm working to labor practices to history to science and biology design in luxury so it was like so many different layers of things all in this one product that i never really thought twice about and the more i got into it the more. I saw that lebanese wine and then also like the region itself has kind of been left out of the conversation. So the more starting to study at the morris started looking into our local scene. How so much of it was. Underrepresented not talked about not really investigated not shared enough And i felt that a lot of young people wanted to know about that. But they didn't really have source for it. So that's how. I got into hosting classes at our store about lebanese wine and i created a whole deck about it and so we'd have customers come to the store and we do like a tasting. I'd walk through the ancient history all the way up until today and the challenges that the industry faces today than we try six local lines a lot of them being smaller producers. The ones that you may be couldn't find very easily or didn't even know about and so gradually through doing the research for these classes just my own kind of knowledge building. I was interviewing people in talking to people and getting their stories. And i thought why. Don't turn this into a podcast. I had already been doing. Podcasts work For another podcast. i was co hosting. Call the better beirut. So i was familiar with the medium because of my graphic design training new. Had edit a knew how to do these things in market something myself. So i created a bi for bacchus. Because i was doing. The work already felt that more people needed to hear these stories and needed to know. More about the wind world in lebanon and i felt a podcast is a great way to unleash it on everybody. It wasn't limited to just people who could attend these classes. In beirut was global you talked about how intertwined is with the history especially the recent history. I mean as you were. You're delving in with with your research. How did that. Kind of deepen. Your understanding of lebanon in in the region through this prism of wine. Well everything is intertwined. It's not you know this. This product isn't floating by itself while everything else in the world or in the country unfolds. It's all related to economy. It's related to you know 'electricity and the the basic necessities that are not available right now. So how do you create your product. How do you move your product. expert product. All industries are affected by what's happening in the country right now and it just so happens that i got into this this moment where lebanon is going through so many things. I can't even list them. Really and i had started the podcast a week before. The uprising protests began so it was all in parallel to everything that was happening on the ground. And so i had this kind of internal. I still have this internal debate with myself. Of is what i'm doing. Part of his conversation of what's happening on the ground. Is it part of what's happening in the country at large or is this futile and stupid. And you know we don't need to talk about this. It's just whine. And i keep thinking that no it is important. It is important to talk about things that are released culture in how they're affected by these bigger things at play and that it's not just a commodity is also people's livelihoods. It's how we export our country to the rest of the world in how they understand us and how they understand our culture in the end. It's not really just about wine. I don't think i ever got into just to talk about wine. In a technical sense it was very much a device that i use to talk about the country in the region in our culture. In the misconceptions that are always connected to those things so it wasn't ever really just the wind was more everything else that came with it. Yeah and i just wanted to turn to the the episode that we'll be featuring the episode eight about palestine. I know you mentioned on. You know on the podcasts. You were you were doing it remotely. You couldn't travel to the area at that point so just curious about how you got inspired to do that. And to to look at palestine when been so invested in lebanese winds and exploring that part of the issue. Why i started the clock. I never wanted. it's only be about lebanon. I really wanted to branch out beyond the borders but also to neighboring countries even as far as georgia and armenia but because of kobe travel wasn't wasn't possible but it was also that i started seeing that i didn't wanna talk about cultures that maybe i wasn't close enough to understand so i kind of zoomed in as far as the scope and try to keep it just from the region that is nearby so i threw a very big net. At first i was a bit over ambitious when i first started the podcast. I realized i can't cover all of that and understand all of it. There's so many different stories. Just hear her. Let me start here. And then we'll see and palestine was something that was it. Felt like the natural next move as far as branching out to neighboring winemaking places and i had contact. Who who could connect me to a winery. There that was run by a palestinian winemaker. And it was really important for me to talk and have this conversation with the palestinian winemaker. Because i think a lot of people wanna understand. The difference between israeli wine making palestinian winemaking. In how does that work when you're talking about land you're talking about a product from land. That is disputed stolen. I think it's a very complex thing to break down. And it's another version of that. You know israel and palestine always being this conflict and people not even ever thinking that wind could be made there. And what does ownership of grapes mean there so many sub conversations that you can have sub questions..

"bethlehem" Discussed on First Person

"A podcast by for robbery. That's all about finding the best bottles where you might not expect them in just a minute. We'll join for offer the eight episodes of the series to winemaker from palestine's first winery near bethlehem. But i i caught up with harada. Ask how she got started on the series. And here's the thing you don't even have to be a wind. Not to get sucked. Can't i'm just kind of curious. Maybe to start then just how you a little bit about your background and wine and and you know why you decided to jump into this journey of really profiling the region through wine and through the viticulture. I didn't have any formal training and wine. It wasn't something. I was doing for a long time. My trainings actually. I have a degree in biology degree in graphic design very unrelated to wine in a sense and yet they both come into play. Now that i'm studying it more and more I was working at a retail job for my family. We have a imports emporium in beirut. That's mostly american stuff from big box stores like costco and sam's and my boss slash dad told me to take over the alcohol section in wine spirits and at the time. I didn't really know anything about it. But he was like you'll figure it out. It's fine so i took a lot of intro classes inserted reading up on it so that i could know how to buy products but also know how to help customers looking for them and it was surprising that i got so into it. The subject matter was so intertwined with so many other things because in the end it is a commodity but it's also a product related to agriculture to farm working to labor practices to history to science and biology design in luxury so it was like so many different layers of things all in this one product that i never really thought twice about and the more i got into it the more i saw that lebanese line and then also like the region itself has kind of been left out of the conversation so the more starting to study at the morris started looking into our local scene how so much of it was underrepresented not talked about not really investigated not shared enough And i felt that a lot of young people wanted to know about that. But they didn't really have source for it. So that's how. I got into hosting classes at our store about lebanese wine and i created a whole deck about it and so we'd have customers come to the store and we do like a tasting. I'd walk through the ancient history all the way up until today and the challenges that the industry faces today than we try six local lines a lot of them being smaller producers. The ones that you may be couldn't find very easily or didn't even know about and so gradually through doing the research for these classes just my own kind of knowledge building. I was interviewing people in talking to people and getting their stories. And i thought why. Don't turn this into a podcast. I had already been doing. Podcasts work For another podcast. i was co hosting. Call the better beirut. So i was familiar with the medium because of my graphic design training. Knew how to edit a knew how to do these things in market something myself so i created a bi for bacchus. Because i was doing radio and i felt that more people needed to hear these stories and needed to know more about the wind world in lebanon and i felt a podcast is a great way to unleash it on everybody. It wasn't limited to just people who could attend these classes. In beirut was google you talked about how intertwined is with the history especially the recent history. I mean as you were. You're delving in with with your research. How did that. Kind of deepen. Your understanding of lebanon in in the region through this prism of wine. Well everything is intertwined. It's not you know this. This product isn't floating by itself while everything else in the world or in the country unfolds. It's all related to economy. It's related to you know 'electricity and the the basic necessities that are not available right now. So how do you create your product. How do you move your product. expert product. All industries are affected by what's happening in the country right now and it just so happens that i got into this this moment where lebanon is going through so many things. I can't even list them. Really and i had started the podcast a week before. The uprising protests began so it was all in parallel to everything that was happening on the ground. And so i had this kind of internal. I still have this internal debate with myself. Of is what i'm doing. Part of his conversation of what's happening on the ground. Is it part of what's happening in the country at large or is this futile and stupid. And you know we don't need to talk about this. It's just whine. And i keep thinking that no it is important. It is important to talk about things that are released culture in how they're affected by these bigger things at play and that it's not just a commodity is also people's livelihoods. It's how we export our country to the rest of the world in how they understand us and how they understand our culture in the end. It's not really just about wine. I don't think i ever got into just to talk about wine. In a technical sense it was very much a device that i use to talk about the country in the region in our culture. In the misconceptions that are always connected to those things so it wasn't ever really just the wind was more everything else that came with it. Yeah and i just wanted to turn to the the episode that we'll be featuring the episode eight about palestine. I know you mentioned on. You know on the podcasts. You were you were doing it remotely. You couldn't travel to the area at that point so just curious about how you got inspired to do that. And to to look at palestine when been so invested in lebanese winds and exploring that part of the issue. When i started the clock. I never wanted. It's only be about lebanon. I really wanted to branch out beyond the borders but also to neighboring countries even as far as georgia and armenia but because of kobe travel wasn't wasn't possible but it was also that i started seeing that i didn't wanna talk about cultures that maybe i wasn't close enough to understand so i kind of zoomed in as far as the scope and try to keep it just from the region that is nearby so i threw a very big net. At first i was a bit over ambitious when i first started the podcast. I realized i can't cover all of that and understand all of it. There's so many different stories. Just hear her. Let me start here. And then we'll see and palestine was something that was it. Felt like the natural next move as far as branching out to neighboring winemaking places and i had contact. Who who could connect me to a winery. There that was run by a palestinian winemaker..

Wet Notes 8-30-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes.

Of course don't have control over our borders so we have also on the side in the number of minds a duke over but then my opinion is joined ended up that i think is also the return back so i can see that on as being a position on this issue. They wouldn't be concerned that we also developed organism industry so complicated off to support. I mean i've been following. Certain certain countries are doing just example from finland is that there was one Lake district destination that made a arrangement with a japanese tour operator to sell virtual experiences online because for the japanese. They enjoy like the christmas miffed and so so they they will. They were able to see the on like a pay per view experience and then they will take into a shop and they can choose. Maybe some christmas related goods which they could buy online at the same time and then we'll sell to the country so they are so what people trying to do is to use a virtual experience to in one way reached the customer at least for the time being until it's possible to travel is something bethlehem could pick up on that and i know that you have a webcam. I visited the webcam omega square. And i really enjoyed it but i was hoping that could be something more like amazon has a virtual experienced. Page that you the people can buy a product or they can make a Like a guided tour of the place. And i think bedtime will be perfect for this kind of shoe and doing something about this. We have a budget or more and this one. We have looked at the finals outcome of innovations of the church of nativity. And we're using it once pad to too much more intensive exhibition that we'd to take another word now negotiating negotiation with By museum in washington. Dc to move this exhibition to them and with emission of courses seven years. The very you complaining about the dimensions of and bidding on and also with almost having a wiki zoom meetings with various people to think of moving this exhibition in the countries or cities that have contributed to the way we study in. All i can tell you for instance that on your country you know the laws in roving ninety. I met with them. Want one time to try to bring about a common beasley into this about submitting christmas. Evidently the focus match. Then you have the italy with san francis who did the first crash scene and that's also another important contribution to where we have three from. Germany and germany has this slum the idea of where recent comment something into it came from a miami nikomas begin. Santa claus in amsterdam to win. Is that you have so that with the new york became so the humping complete circle over the from us a and this is the christmas market which was established and i established in vienna united. So we tried to move this to this these nations And we've now how do we do it. Effectively and bring them up.

He is in the national recognized leader in the palestinian tourism industry and also the chairman of the board of the bedlam university tourism institute about the tourism situation in bethlehem. How what has how. Bedlam has been affected during the pandemic period but also wanted to understand that Plans that they have for to refer the tourism revival for two thousand and twenty one. So this episode honey explaining a situation bethlehem and also the plans for the bedlam born again project authority. What's how the situation is in in bethlehem at the moment. So could you. Could you help us to understand. And give us a general overview of the industry in the bethlehem region You know since the agreement there was tremendous grooves in the autumn being built up and the middleton the bethlehem but asia and there was a low enthusiasm as they seats has meaning systematically over the past five years and the people have invested law money in this now with the golden oldies investments. And all of this a human as well as physical investment came to a complete stance that so the endoscopy and how it is now at levin but it the problem of he dies. He is is very heavily dependent on tourism sixty five percent of the income of the bethlehem. Lesion is thirty percent of the employment and area is based on tourism so when zero amount of income from tourism was unloading incoming tourism. You know we have issues. We have like a up. Says we have the human issues that we have to worry about families of dependent on tourism and we hope that this court thing will come to a very fast stop and we can see some december list of coming back to bethlehem. I really feel very concerned about community. Here and hub. The loss of my open here is what i had when when we spoke about think i needed forwards being administered. You'd look at speaking events person. In the sodas of because i don't think then be loss of jobs in with the business comes back but some people move for one building on for one hundred another those again for the time so again. I knew who is very find or doing your job. Yeah can he get the wide. I don't think that any loss flying his speaking. And i don't believe in the technology like some machines that have been in people's business business will always be a people's business and side multi these sure that or that technology on some videos about japan to do robot. People i that to me is being as living in unacceptable. Basically we all social human being slaughtered on the big social human beings up. We have to link an ivy with him. We have to hope that the client in the service with love and the professors. And i hope that never changes these days. Yeah i think that's very good points. That could you understand. How has tourism help the bethlehem reaching in the past and and the main reason for the visit to bethlehem the one thing that we we did based mostly mostly mysteries of and if you look at The history i mean was it wasn't moses was a big up prophet. Muhammed himself on. This journey is bigger. Saw the faith-based is very much part of the end of the joe this land and has been around for thousands of years. I don't expect like. I'm very positive about this. I don't expect that to disappear permanently. A the one that over the years. We'll be in the future. The question is when do we expect to start. Coming back is locked with with whether they come back and so i'm on the video optimistic side and the you know we put ourselves to make sure your that we have the talent to be able to serve becomes and and to me There's no hesitation about moving forwards. Could you share with viewers. Now about what is the future like for two thousand twenty one and possible post pandemic and tourism revival. You mentioned that faith. Tourism is a long history and it will be back but in order to inspire and keep bit. Lemme people's mind. What are the thoughts you have. That could emphasize this reason to come to bethlehem one by opinion about the vaccination being alone. I think we can see the light at the end of the of my opinion is as of summit and the forward against the after bacterial. That's i mean we should also be same thing positively. That is the thing but now that we have to flicked on the way we have been leading with area is a better way of doing it to make sure that generates income for our people. It's gives employment our people. These are the times so being very busy. Just moving a people and serving them. I think it's time for us of late of the and the quality of what we give and my opinion here but let me. Diversity is going to have to play a very important role in cooperation with with the a massive the other concern buddies to be able to lift the standard of service and the best number weekend and we can so.

Jupiter and Saturn will form the first "double planet" in 800 years

"Truly rare sight in the sky. Today, some call it the Christmas star Evan Brown reports. Today is the winter solstice, but it's the start of a cosmic phenomenon. Jupiter and Saturn will appear right next to one another looking like a double planet. If you look through a telescope, you will see both planets and their many moons. Scientists say the planets may also have aligned in this manner in the year to be C E and that it could have been what many referred to as the Bethlehem star. If you miss this site this year, you can try again in 2080 or in the dawn of the 25th

Jupiter and Saturn will form the first "double planet" in 800 years

"What astronomers call a great conjunction, the closest they could be seen in the sky together. For nearly 800 years, according to Scientific American and Astronomical conjunction occurs when any two heavenly bodies appear to pass or meet each other as seen from Earth. To make one great, though, requires an encounter between our solar system's two largest planets, the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, a line to allow the giant worlds to seemingly convene roughly every 20 years. But the last time Jupiter and Saturn appeared so close was July 16th. 16 23 back when Galloway was still alive, a little more than a decade after he first used to telescope to discover Jupiter's four largest moons that now collectively bear his name, Great conjunctions. Have at times drawn scientists to speculate over their possible links with major events. For instance, Johannes Kepler investigated whether the star of Bethlehem Which in the Nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew Guided the three wise men to Christ. Birth was a great conjunction. Calculating that one in fact, did occur in seven BC Is it possible the Madge I or Wiseman and we don't know. There were three. Remember the Bible never mentions three Wiseman. But is it possible the Madge I who were basically astrologers were following the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter? Well, one did occur in seven BC, So the timing seems to be about right. Where is he? Who has been born king of the Jews for we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him. It makes sense to me that God would use such an alignment of heavenly bodies to announce the birth of a king or other important events like sign posts. Genesis Chapter one verse 14 and God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night and let them be forced signs and for seasons and for days and years. He determines the number of the stars he gives to all of them their names some Fort 1 47 4, But for those that study Astro theology, they see the Bible as Astrological allegory. The story of Jesus they believe is really about the sun s u N rather than son s. O N. Passing through the Zodiac each year. And indeed, there are numerous examples where the life of Jesus, beginning with his birth seemed to align if you will, quite neatly with the astrological Zodiac. Consider that the sun s U. N is reborn every year on the 25th day of December. That is the days begin to lengthen during the winter solstice. Jesus is born in the stable between the constellations of the horse and goat secretaries and Capricorn. 30 years after Christ birth, he was baptized 30 days after the sun s U. N is born. It enters the sign Aquarius, the water bearer Thies are but two Now to be clear. I'm a Bible believing Christian. I believe the Bible

Why Do Things Seem Scary In The Dark?

"This is but why a podcast for curious kids from from public radio. I'm the host of the show. Jane lindholm on this podcast. We take your questions about anything really anything and we find interesting. People help offer you some answers. Sometimes your questions are easily answered by someone with just the right knowledge. They are questions with fact based answers like why are some eggs brown and some white or green or blue. We've tackled that question and the answer is really interesting but sometimes your questions don't have precise answers. Sometimes there are many answers or none. Even sometimes we need to find people who can offer you advice or their opinion or maybe just a new perspective. That's the kind of question and topic we're tackling today. A lot of you have been sending us questions about something that makes you scared. My name is scout. i am eight years old. I live in air massachusetts. My question is why do you think seem more scary in the dark even though they are the same things you see when it's light by my name is logan from jericho vermont. I'm five years old and my question is why do people have fear of dark. Hi my name is the nineteen years old. They with celtic can't for me. Why am i the the see what i mean. That's a tricky thing to answer. So we're going to tackle this in two ways today later in the episode. We'll go for a hike in the dark with a wildlife biologist. To get a sense of the things you can learn from going out into the darkness and to answer non-scary questions about how animals see at night but first we thought we'd talk to someone who not only shared the fear of the dark that some of you have when he was a child but who has embraced fear and made writing scary books his job. I am dental hambur. I am best known for books that i write the name. Lemonade stick it specifically the thirteen volumes. A series of unfortunate events. You also wrote a block a really lovely picture book about a fear of the dark. I did yes. I think it's funds right picture books about things we might otherwise be afraid of. So i've written the picture book about words. My most recent picture book is about a swarm of bees and then there is the dark which is about being afraid of the dark. So let's tackle some of the questions that our listeners have for you here and about their own. Existential fear of the dark surly moneymatters. Truman and i live in bethlehem pennsylvania. My name is don need. I live in saint. John's barre vermont ever gopi and on to know why people are scared of the dark wires. Swim people afraid of the dark upgrade up to dr the question that everybody has why. Why are we afraid of the dark and i think the short answer is because the dark terrifying. Oh good thanks for putting us at for most of us are visual senses very important to us and when that visual senses take it away it can be extremely disorienting. And so if we're used to seeing something and measuring our way through the world physically and emotionally with the blessing of site which most of us are lucky enough to have in form or another it being taken away is very terrifying and also it allows the brain wander and then your brain wanders to things that might not otherwise occur to you so if you're walking through your house in the daytime you think to yourself. I wonder if someone has somehow let an alligator in that has underneath the sofa and it's waiting to get to get me you would never think high noon but in the middle of the night. If you wake up you need a glass of water or the opposite. The first thing that will occur to you as i'm wondering what horrible beast has somehow very silently gotten its way into my otherwise harmless home that example sprang to mind awfully quickly. Maybe you have had similar fears yourself. Of course yes. I have a creaky wooden floor. Near where i sleep and when i walk on it in the middle of the night i can assume that the creeks are covering up the talons or the smacking of lips or something else that some terrible creature is Is grateful for the camouflage.

Brittens Ceremony of Carols

"The recent. Tom hanks movie greyhound. The captain of destroyer leads a convoy across the u boat infested north atlantic during world war. Two not say that the trip from the us to britain in nineteen forty two was dangerous is not only an understatement of epic proportion it offers the context for the extraordinary composition of benjamin britten's ceremony of carols britten was arguably the most important british composer of the twentieth century. After three years in north america. He found himself in the middle of the atlantic aboard a swedish cargo vessel trying to return to his native england instead of panicking midst. The harrowing circumstances were too dangerous crossing. He wrote two. Choral works the him to saint cecilia and the ceremony of carols and as the name suggests the ceremony of carols consists of ten carols frame by the chant. Hodie a christie's not to est- today christ is born both the beginning and the end the carol employed day from the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries and are sung in middle and early modern english as well as in latin one. Care all deo gratias. Thanks be to god. Sung a combination of middle english. And latin tells the story of genesis three while the texas primarily about the fall the carols musical energy and emphasis is on thankfulness specifically thankfulness to god for providing a savior who sets things right. The most beloved carol in the work is this little bay. And despite the sentimental sounding title of this carol the tax describes the all out battle that this babe of bethlehem wages against satan himself the tax was written by robert southwell catholic priest who was hanged drawn and quartered by queen elizabeth. The first. here's how it goes this little babes as old as come to rifle. Satan's fold all hell doth add his presence quake though he himself for cold do shake for in his week. Unarmored wise the gates of hell he will surprise. Jeff's version of new york's classical music station w. Q x are caused this little babe his favorite christmas carol in south wales words and britain's music's spurgeon the battle between good and evil is one by quote a baby born in obscure poverty and it's depicted quote not by a huge orchestra and massive voices but by harp in a choir of children will britain the man who pulled all of this off musically could hardly be described as an orthodox christian definitely not a devout one his personal life including his sexual proclivities where the source of numerous controversies during his life even after his death still he was at least if this work composed during a potentially deadly voyage any proof so christ haunted man. Believe it or not in this. Britain's not unusual see so much of the west great art is inspired by christian themes in fact it's impossible to imagine the west cultural heritage without christianity and though much of our greatest art was created by people of unquestionable. Fates johann sebastian. Bach others were produced by people whose faith is unknown known to be non-existent the power that these works hold to move us is at route the power of the story that makes the work possible. The story that explains where human creativity like fully evident in the amazing talent of benjamin britten comes from in the first place and in this case to use virgins words. The story of god sneak attack on the forces of evil. Something will soon celebrate

Who Was George Fredrick Handel

"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode, we're talking about a composer George, Frederic Handel and I resist the urge to have upon here and say that we going to get a handle on handle. But let's get a handle on hindle. He was born in sixteen, Eighty five in Hallo- Germany the importance of that year is it was the same year as the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach sixteen eighty five was a great year for the birth of composers apparently, and now Bach to handle and I promise. I'm done with punts. Well handle was originally set to be a lawyer but he loved music and he quickly showed his prowess as an organist and at composing, and so he said off to be a musician. He spent some time traveling around Italy and then he was musician for the elector of Hanover. Now, the importance of the elector of Hanover was that he was the heir to the throne of England and when Queen and died childless the elector of Hanover became King George the. First of England handle moved with him to London and the year was seventeen off and from then on hand spent the rest of his life in Britain, and he's while born in Germany and German descent is known as an English composer under George. The first t founded the Royal Academy of Music, which he directed for fifteen years early on in London Handel composed for King George the first his famous water music or as in handles beloved German Tongue vassar music. The first time it was performed for King George loved it so much. He ordered it played again and then he ordered it played again. So debuted three times in a row in seventeen seventeen. After. He finished his time handle finished his time at the Royal Academy of Music. He spent much of the Seventeenth Thirties writing operas, and then he said about to write what might be considered his magnum opus the Messiah. Handel. was by all accounts obsessed with work. We would say today a workaholic and he poured himself into his work as a composer as a musician. Sadly in seventeen fifty one he went blind and then in seventeen, fifty, nine, the age of seventy four he died in, London? He was buried in Westminster Abbey and of course, the grand organ of the Abbey and the choir played his beloved. Messiah. Handel one said I should be very sorry if I only entertained them referring to the people who listen to his music, he wanted people to not only be entertained but to beat moved by his music and that was certainly the case with the Messiah. The Messiah was first performed in Dublin on April thirteen, seventeen, forty two it was performed the next year in London and King George the second was in the audience attending and when he got to the chorus for part to the Hallelujah Chorus King George, the second was moved that he stood up, and of course, when the king stands everyone else stands in. So the whole theater stood alongside of the king and that started tradition of standing during the Hallelujah course. The Messiah is in three parts. Part one begins with prophecies of the. Coming Messiah from Isaiah and Psalms, and takes us right to the shepherds watching their flock at night on Bethlehem's hillsides. Then part two covers the passion, the suffering in-depth of Christ and ends with that Hallelujah course part three picks up with Christ's resurrection and continues with his ascension and what theologians call his present session in glory, and then it ends with the day of judgement to come as the Messiah the king comes in glory. Well, that is Handel's Messiah and when he was finished writing the musical score, he signed it s D. G. Solely Dale Gloria.

"The hour it is Christmas morning and you are with first light and of course I guess some people think the first light actually appeared over Jerusalem excuse me over Bethlehem two thousand something years ago two thousand nineteen years ago and we are going to go there in just a moment it's a very busy place right now of course you got thousands of Christian programs who are on the west bank town of Bethlehem celebrating Christmas Eve last night in the traditional birthplace of Jesus they say that about fifteen thousand people stayed overnight there there is a big Christmas tree in manger square near the spot believed to mark Jesus's birthplace all day long it was drums and music and bagpipes and people selling snacks and holiday gifts pretty festive atmosphere there which is unusual because you know Bethlehem is it's in the Palestinian administered area of the Israeli occupied west bank and so you know there are political issues there but they are put aside at least for this you know one day of the year Bethlehem of course not too far from Jerusalem and so last night there is the church of the nativity where and Christians believe that Jesus was born and they hosted the Palestinian dignitaries and pilgrims around the world the archbishop appear Batista piece about love the had class Catholic cleric in the holy land was there and he gave a homily lamenting violence and deep divisions that characterize the modern holy land but he also praise those who pursue what he called the style of Bethlehem or the example of Jesus are correspondent in Jerusalem as or Lieberman you know or on is often on the front lines of the violence and war as he covers political strife intention in that area but Oren is with us this morning and or and were so happy to have you here on first light I'll tell you would have expected joyous occasion and I'm certainly happy Michael to get away from that strives and that doubt call attention there it is a beautiful as was the leading into a beautiful Christmas day there was some rain in the forecast that rain is held off there's not a cloud in the sky and it is a gorgeous festive Christmas Eve here in Bethlehem manger square is quite full you know have been talking for the social the hotels are booked stores are full numbers are often that is made is not just a religious and a spiritual celebration but economic one as well for Bethlehem the church of the nativity were inside there's a golden star on the spot the Christians believe Jesus Christ was born that of course the big draw here all of it turning into a very merry Christmas here in Bethlehem it's such an interesting mix you have a biblical city you have these young narrow alleys and I wouldn't activity scenes but it's also full of holiday decorations and the central market right next to the grotto where the Christian tradition is that Jesus was born out of those things co exist well it's simply incredible here there's so much history there's there's a a religious history that the reason they called the holy land and that's what makes it so incredible to walk around as you pointed out the narrow twisted whiting street very often I you'll go from Mary's well through the church of the nativity where you can go inside a gold star the grotto throughout the shepherds field at its its wondrous just being able to see all of that within minutes of each other at and then from where I'm standing looking over it was Jerusalem and the all the religious history there and especially on days like Christmas it is a privilege to be here and to be able to witness all of it and I'll tell you inside major squared not just Christian celebration everybody here tourists as well come here to just be a part of this on this very special day I think I heard from your earlier reporting that Bethlehem is enjoying like a very very very busy tourist year perhaps one of the busiest in decades now there's some sort of a lull in Israeli Palestinian tensions that has that has helped that along is that correct yeah certainly there's always tension and and that's perhaps the context that everything here but the tension has at least for the moment for example a couple of years ago there was a travel warning from the U. S. about Bethlehem about the region and that they believe made a hit on the numbers and I pulled away from the festivities here there's also more security around here and to top it off without a rating at the end of the night on Christmas Eve it's much more festive here and in the square is full the shops are full and all of that has led to a a very festive atmosphere and toward the faithful all out here on what looks to be only a good year because source numbers are up but a very good and to the year including especially Christmas so I understand that there is an unusually interesting attraction this year tell us about that holy relic I'd call it new but it is in fact very very old the small piece of wood believed to be the manger of Jesus Christ it was taken away from the holy land the seventh century were spent most of last thousand years in Rome it was brought back to hear it it's a small piece of what about the size of fingernail was brought back here about three weeks ago in time for advent and of course in time for midnight mass and for Christmas that will be inside the church of the nativity adding to the experience in the place hold adding to part of the history here and at the festivities and of course the holiday here the reason for the holiday speaking of old wood somebody who had come back from there to told me that when you go into the shops and you buy like carved nativity scenes and things that are carved out of wood some of that is coming from all of trees that were there at the time of all the events vents of this ancient story that that they're depicting I mean that some of these trees olive trees are several thousand years old and whenever they get pruned shopkeepers take that wouldn't car things out of them I mean that is an amazing thing that to be holding a lot of people aren't even aware of that I'll tell you what my friend come visit certainly when I go home olive tree decorations recordings are some of the best here are the olive trees the original olive trees in two thousand years ago I'm not gonna get in that would certainly be all according to our base very very old what and it adds to it that it's an olive tree olive branch the symbol of peace there and the card is frankly a beautiful it almost every shop I would say around here and there are a lot of them especially around major square sell these always wood carving and they are first incredibly decorative perhaps more importantly incredibly meaningful so that the Christmas season in Bethlehem doesn't and you know with Christmas day last for awhile doesn't it it does Christmas Eve is certainly the highlight of it in terms of the biggest activities the midnight mass what are the most bang but the spirit felt endless to beat around the liberation dreaded do continue for a little while longer that being said again Christmas Eve is the big night here and that's what everything your build swords is this a good gig for a reporter especially somebody who covers really hard news all the time heck yeah look I'm having a great time here in my group we enjoyed a whole dated certainly a very long day we get there early but it is a fun day everyone here is in a good mood which is not something you can say all that often reporting in the Middle East but everyone here is celebrating a day and enjoying it what are they believe or not I don't see the relevance is less important affected their here to enjoy and with the dictation of Christmas in Bethlehem all right well I know you have to get back to work you have a lot of people it will you know waiting to see and hear your report so like to thank you so much for being with us on first light or Lieberman in Bethlehem thank you so much for being with us like a merry Christmas to you and everyone out there all right we are now at sixteen minutes before the hour Christmas morning here on first light we still have a ways to go this morning we thank you for being with us within a check on the headline stop sports and the nation's weather in.
