Which Chickadee - Black-capped or Carolina?

From BirdNote | 01:45

Of all the birds that turn up at birdfeeders, chickadees are favorites. And they’re instantly recognizable. Yet sometimes we have to ask ourselves: “Which chickadee is it?” In the eastern and central states, there are two species: Black-capped Chickadees pervade the northern half of the region, and Carolina Chickadees, like this one, the southern half. But in some places, they overlap. And while the two look nearly identical, their voices give them away!

Why Women Don't Tell, Part 4: What the Media Leaves Out

 

In the PBS Newshour Friday night left/right voice section, a substitute journalist, Eliana Johnson from the Washington, DC-based Free Beacon, sat in for the conservative David Brooks.

 

The moderator moved the topics along to the Trump Criminal trial. As almost an aside, Journalist Johnson observed that “Stormy Daniels was up there talking about things that are not appropriate to say on this network.”

 

And thus, she (Johnson, not Daniels) presented the perspective which most of the trial coverage has clung to and, by default, to what's been left out. For a second, I wondered if the “not appropriate” she referenced is Stormy Daniels' rape history, the time from age 9 to about 11, when she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by a next door neighbor, who also raped her childhood best friend. When the friend finally disclosed to the school guidance counselor her rape experience, Stormy then known as Stephanie, told him the neighbor had assaulted her- repeatedly. The Guidance Counselor told her she was lying. She just said that, he said, because she wanted the attention her friend began to receive. Ms. Daniels' did not remember this incident until she was vabout 23. The amnesic relationship to abuse and the silencing of disclosure is not at all unusual, any trauma therapist would validate.

 

The posture of that Guidance Counselor uniquely and disturbingly parallels- no surprise- the defense attorneys' questioning of Ms. Daniels. It also parallels the trivialization of the sexual exploitation she experienced by the then 60 year old Donald Trump which Eliana Johnson presents- as does much of the media- as trivial- and sees as secondary to her occupation as a stripper and “adult” film actress , “adult” film director and producer. Add to this the designation as “the smart one”, which Trump applied to the then 27 year old Daniels as a pretense for his request to have dinner with her- communicated to her by Trump's body guard.

 

I read the “liberal” New York Times' supplied transcript of Ms. Daniels' testimony which motivated me to read her book “Full Disclosure”, her second more widely known effort to tell the truth.

 

I speculate but my guess is Eliana Johnson hasn't read it, what with the focus on the words that can't be said on Public broadcasting. Exclusion of the facts about what really happened to Stormy Daniels means that Eliana and the other journalists collude in ignoring  “grooming”, the hallmark of a predator before the exploitation actually takes place. It shifts the focus to the teller's credibility, the teller's sexualization- your dirty mind- of what is taking place. After all, the predator grooming the object hasn't acted yet on his intention.

 

Exclusion of her childhood sexual assault, in this case, leaves Ms. Daniels' to be characterized as the one with the licentious sex life, ignoring Donald Trump's grooming of Ms. Daniels with the offer of a Celebrity Apprentice appearance. Sex as the outcome of her meeting him in his Penthouse Suite was not what she anticipated. After going to the restroom and finding Trump standing between her and the bedroom door, his bodyguard shielding the entry to the suite as he was when she arrived, she describes an episode of derealization. Look it up.

 

Eliana Johnson having a pat phrase to the signify the witness with the dirty mouth speaks to the rubric the media has taken on. Yes, the substitution of the word “adult film” actress for “porn star” mitigates the sullying. But it does nothing to tag Trump's grooming as predatory, his baiting with a Celebrity Apprentice appearance. Harvey Weinstein used similar tactics.

 

An outcome of this trial could be that the 60-something Trumps of the world- along with the Harvey Weinsteins- would be more easily held accountable. A higher paying job, a good paycheck, a reliable living for someone like Daniels who grew up with a single mother who had to work more than one minimum wage job at a time is- even Eliana Johnson might agree- motivation. For the adolescent Daniels, a Baton Rouge , Louisiana Ballet dancer, and dressage horsewoman who taught riding lessons to handicapped children, her foray as a teenager into “exotic dancer” stripping meant she tripled her income. She testified that her whole life she had supported herself financially. Women earn 84 cents to a man's dollar, which was far lower the early 2000s.

 

Left out of the narrative, as well, has been the threat leveled by an anonymous stranger in 2016 in a parking lot to Daniels and her child. This was ultimately what led her to speak about the encounter with Trump, lest her family or she herself be physically harmed.

 

An outcome might galvanize the always tenuous feminist collective which the Elianas splice open, often. In “Full Disclosure” and in her testimony, Daniels refers – over and over- to her coworkers- other strippers- as “girls”, no matter how old. There's truth in that too. The Club owners are called men, generally, a reminder of who holds power in the world- those with money or masculinity. Both have been tools to re-assert that power, in the Trump trial, to silence the truth about sexual exploitation under the guise of principled indignation, and they continue to be reasons why Women Don't Tell, but - not for Stephanie aka “Stormy” Daniels- now.

Summer Beers

From Delmarva Public Media | Part of the Beer Notes series | 02:00

Beernoteslogo_small The days are longer, the beaches are open again, and summer approaches.  This week on Beer Notes, we are highlighting the summer beers produced here on the Shore.

Craft beers full of flavor and lighter in color are popular as warm weather approaches.  Sours and fruited beers including the milkshake IPAs come into their own.  Porters and stouts are taking a back seat to pilsners, wit biers, and IPAs of all varieties.

Here on the Shore where local politicians say the sun kisses Ocean City first each morning, the ocean dominates our environment and our psyche, and so does summer. 

EVO craft brewing in Salisbury Maryland has the Delmarva Pure Pils, A supremely sessionable Eastern Shore take on a Czech-style pilsner.

Fin City, started in a crab house in West Ocean City, still serves crabs in working boats permanently docked at their pier all summer.  They take their location and fishing seriously.  With names like Angler Ale, White Marlin Pale Ale, Blackfin Black IPA, Catch of the Day IPA, and Backfin Blue Crab Stout to Marga Wheat A and  Marina Colada.  They even made a beer to support the creation and maintenance of artificial reefs off the coast of Ocean City for fishing habitat, OC Reef Red. 

3rd Wave-, a woman owned brewery in Delmar, a small village that sits astride the state border between Delaware and Maryland produces the SandStorm Belgian Tripel, BeachBreak Apricot Wheat, and ShoreBreak Pale Ale.

Crooked Hammock, nestled in among the beach resort towns of Coastal Delaware- produces BEACH ESCAPE and Hammock Easy.  Their neighbor in Lewes, Big Oyster Brewing has the Hammerhead IPA, a traditional west coast style that competes with the best  IPAs on the market.

As summer crests the horizon, make sure that your vision includes locally made craft beer with names and flavors that bring to mind all the places and activities you love about the season.

Eco Report - June 28, 2024

In this week's feature report,  WFHB News Correspondents Noelle Herhusky-Schneider, Kade Young and Madison Stratton investigate Indiana's efforts to rollback protections for wetlands. This is Part Two of a four-part series that previously aired on Deep Dive: WFHB and Limestone Post Investigate.

The New York Times reports new ‘detective work’ on butterfly declines reveals a prime suspect. Agricultural insecticides were a key factor, according to a study focused on the Midwest, though researchers emphasized the importance of climate change and habitat loss. What’s driving ominous declines in insects? Primary concerns are butterflies and bees. While a growing body of research shows decreases in many insect populations, it has been hard for scientists to disentangle the possible causes. Are insects suffering from habitat loss as natural areas are plowed and paved? Is climate change doing them in? What about pesticides?

The latest insight comes from a study on butterflies in the Midwest, published on Thursday in the journal PLOS ONE. Its results don’t discount the serious effects of climate change and habitat loss on butterflies and other insects, but they indicate that agricultural insecticides exerted the biggest impact on the size and diversity of butterfly populations in the Midwest during the study period, 1998 to 2014. Especially detrimental, the researchers found, was a class of widely used insecticides called neonicotinoids that are absorbed into the tissues of plants.

“It’s a story about unintended consequences,” said Scott Swinton, a professor of agricultural economics at Michigan State University and one of the study’s authors. “In developing technologies that were very effective at controlling soybean aphid and certain other agricultural pests, non-target species that we care about, butterflies in particular, have been harmed.”

Farmers in Indiana widely use neonicotinoids on corn and soybeans. This type of pesticide is banned in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. In the EU, neonicotinoids have had restrictions placed on their use, which are as follows: the use in bee-attractive crops (including corn, oilseed rape and sunflower) is prohibited, with the exception of uses in greenhouses.

The attack by the emerald ash borer on ash trees has been underway for more than a decade. Now a question is whether any ash trees will survive. A report from Penn State University has the answer: barely. “Lingering ash." That’s what the U.S. Forest Service calls the relatively few green and white ash trees that survive the emerald ash borer onslaught. Those trees do not survive by accident, and that may save the species, according to Penn State researchers, who conducted a six-year study of ash decline and mortality.

The research shows some ash trees have varying degrees of resistance to the strangely beautiful, invasive beetle from Asia. The study is unique because it took place at a plantation of ash trees planted on Penn State’s University Park campus in the mid-1970s. “We found that genetic variation exists in trees from around the country, and through time — especially as the emerald ash borer population collapses because host trees are rapidly disappearing — the resistance that we observed will likely ensure the survival of the species,” said Kim Steiner, professor of forest biology, College of Agricultural Sciences.

This little-known ash plantation off Porter Road near Penn State's Swine Research Facility — the largest collection of green ash germplasm in one location in the world — may play a role in saving the species. “We began measuring the decline in 2012, shortly after emerald ash borers arrived in the plantation, and we measured it every year through 2017,” said Steiner. “The effect of the insect was devastating. As of August of this year, only 13 trees remained of the 1,762 that were alive when the emerald ash borer arrived.”

The fact that some trees survived longer means there are heritable genetic differences among trees from different populations and seed parents, Steiner added. “For the first time, this study demonstrated that there is genetic variation that could be captured in a breeding program to improve resistance to emerald ash borer in both white ash and green ash species," he said.

According to the Sierra Club, Duke Energy, the largest electric utility in the state, filed a case with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission’s (IURC) requesting to raise residential customers’ bills an additional 19% by 2026. If approved, Duke would use its customers' money to keep its massively polluting Gibson and Edwardsport coal-burning power plants open.

Extensive evidence in Duke's previous rate hike case, filed in 2019, showed the Edwardsport coal gasification plant loses money the majority of the time it operates. EcoReport concludes basically this plant has been a boondoggle since inception because Duke could not master the design and operation of the plant. They were amateurs trying to use a process that required experts. EcoReport aired stories years ago, calling for Duke to bring in experts from South Africa.

That nation used the very process as part of the way they made gasoline while there was an embargo on importing gasoline during apartheid. Based on public data, Duke's Gibson plant lost an estimated $55.6 million in energy market revenues last year, making Gibson the “losingest” coal-burning power plant in an electric wholesale market anywhere in the country in 2023. “For over a decade, Duke has unfairly put the burden on customers' pocketbooks to prop up its money-losing Edwardsport and Gibson plants.

Instead of investing in clean and affordable renewable energy, Duke energy chose to waste billions of our hard earned dollars,” said Robyn Skuya-Boss, Hoosier Chapter Sierra Club Director. “Regulators at the IURC can’t keep allowing Duke to put our money into polluting resources; we need to see investments in clean energy that benefit our communities.”

Across the state, Duke is the largest utility polluter, and furthest behind in building clean energy. The monopoly utility’s Gibson plant in Southwest Indiana was identified by the Center for Public Integrity as a Super Polluter, one of the worst toxic and greenhouse gas emitters in the nation. Burning coal at this plant alone contributes to 78 premature deaths annually.

Duke’s Gibson plant has become an even worse investment for ratepayers since the company’s last rate case filing because its electric generation is uncompetitive in today’s grid. In 2023, Gibson had its lowest output ever. Nonetheless, due to low market prices and rocketing coal costs, Duke operated Gibson far more often than warranted, at a steep cost to consumers.

Sierra Club will further scrutinize the filing, which contains thousands of pages, and will be encouraging community members to speak out against the rate hike by submitting public comments to regulators over the coming months. There was a public meeting recently on Duke’s proposal. Our reporting on this meeting is separate from this review. In the information note sent to community activists, there was important information which is repeated here. EcoReport has not independently evaluated the recommendations.

RCU has been running a Follow the Money Campaign on three state house seats with voters partly in Monroe County. Not one of them is voting for consumers or the environment. Citizens Action Coalition indicates Rep. Peggy Mayfield in H60 and Rep. Bob Heaton H46 and Rep. Dave Hall H62 are the legislators of relevance. It's become clear we will never get voters back into the driver's seat until we re-balance our General Assembly.

EcoReport will add that Rep. Heaton was involved in making Indiana the worst state for rooftop solar, according to IndyStar. RCU says you have a choice this fall. These are the candidates who deserve your time and your treasure: Michelle Higgs for H60; Kurtis Cummings, H46; and Thomas Horrocks, H62.
