For men, testosterone is important for mood, bone health, erectile function, libido, strength and muscle mass and is also associated with lower levels of inflammatory markers, better insulin sensitivity, and metabolic health. It also may even have some vasodilatory effects, and higher testosterone levels are also associated with better health outcomes in general and lower cardiovascular, cancer, and all-cause mortality. Unfortunately, It looks like testosterone levels in the population are dropping, although more isn't necessarily better. On this podcast, NBT Scientific Director Megan Hall and I are talking about testosterone: why we should care about it, how to test for it, and how to support healthy levels of this hormone. Megan discusses signs and symptoms of low testosterone and seven different lifestyle changes you can make to support optimal levels - before you even consider taking a supplement. We also talk about hormone replacement therapy, who might benefit, and some of the downsides to this strategy. For all the references and a detailed roadmap of everything we discuss, be sure to follow along with Megan's outline for this podcast.  Here's the outline of this episode with Megan Hall: [00:00:24] Testosterone: Why you should care.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 11-19-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of November 22, 2021.  This revised episode from January 2014 is part of a series this year of winter-related episodes. SOUND – ~5 sec That's the landing sound of a large, distinctive duck that can be found in winter on Virginia's coastal waters.  Have a listen for about 10 seconds to some more of this species' sounds, and see if you know this bird.  And here's a hint: the bird's name, and the male's beautiful color, may remind you of a painting.SOUND – ~12 secIf you guessed a Canvasback, you're right!  Canvasbacks breed on water bodies in the prairies of Canada and the northern United States, but they winter in large sections of the U.S. and Mexico, with one concentration in the Chesapeake Bay area.  According to the Chesapeake Bay Program, at one time almost half of North America's Canvasbacks wintered around the Chesapeake, but that number has decreased to about 20 percent because of reductions in Bay submerged aquatic vegetation, or Bay grasses, a valuable winter food for this species.  Canvasbacks are diving ducks, meaning they typically go completely underwater to obtain food and avoid predators.  In winter, Canvasbacks feed largely on plant roots and buds, while in summer they'll add to their plant diet a variety of aquatic insects and other animals.  Predators on adult and young Canvasbacks include mink, coyotes, foxes, owls and other birds, some reptiles and fish, and human hunters, while Canvasback eggs are eaten by various mammals and birds. The Canvasback is considered one of the most distinctive North American ducks.  The following quote from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's “Birds of the World” Web site describes how the bird stands out.  Quote: “This exclusively North American species is considered the ‘aristocrat of ducks.'  The male's striking appearance—rich chestnut-red head and neck, black chest, white back, and long, sloping, blackish bill—along with its large size distinguish it in the field.”  Unquote. Thanks to Lang Elliott for permission to use the Canvasback sounds, from the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs.  We close with about 50 seconds of music appropriate for the Canvasback's Chesapeake Bay connection.  Here's “Chesapeake Bay Ballad,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music. MUSIC - ~51 sec – instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this episode.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

Here are some points about Canvasbacks, excerpted from the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources (formerly Department of Game and Inland Fisheries), “Fish and Wildlife Information Service/Canvasback,” online at https://services.dwr.virginia.gov/fwis/booklet.html?&bova=040064&Menu=_.Taxonomy&version=18949.Physical Description “The adult male has a head that is rusty red, shading to almost black near the bill.  The breast is grayish-black and the sides and back are light gray to white.  The wings and speculum are gray, and the eye is red.  The bill is long and sloping, black, with decidedly long sloping profile that clearly distinguishes it from the redhead. …The adult female head is light brown.  The sides and breast are olive-brown to gray-brown, and the underparts are light gray. The back is gray, finely barred with darker gray, and the wings are grayish brown.  …They have short wings, and a rapid wingbeat.  This species has difficulty leaving the water.  It is one of the fastest flying ducks.  …It is one of the largest ducks.”Breeding “The breeding season is from May to June… This species breeds in Alaska, western Canada, northwest United States, western North America from the prairie provinces of Canada, south into the central and western states and occasionally as far east as Hudson Bay with a few as far north as Alaska.  Spring and early summer they are found in marshes with shallow waters [and in] flooded farmland.  In mid-summer they frequent large marshes and lakes, sloughs, and swampy areas.” Migration and Winter Habitat and Behavior “During migration, they fly in large ‘V' shaped flocks at high altitudes. … They are also associated with larger bodies of water.  …Late migration is in the fall, and early migration in the spring.  This species migrates cross country from the northwestern United States to the Atlantic Coast, principally the Chesapeake Bay.  The migration corridors shift annually, and they have a strong tendency to return to the same breeding ground.  … The heaviest flight is from the Canada pothole country to the Chesapeake Bay. … They arrive at Chesapeake Bay later than most other ducks.  The Chesapeake Bay fall migration is from October 15 to December 15, with a peak from November 15 to December 15.  The spring migration is from February 20 to May 1, with the peak from March 1 to March 30.  They occupy specific and traditional rivers, lakes, and marshes on migratory areas.  … This species winters to Mexico [and to the] Atlantic and Gulf Coast.  ...Virginia is one of best areas for canvasbacks.  …  They are found in lakes, salt bays and estuaries, brackish and alkaline waters near the coast, estuaries and shallow bays, [and] rarely on the open sea. … The optimum in Chesapeake Bay areas is in fresh and brackish estuarine bays with extensive beds of submerged plants or abundant invertebrates, primarily in brackish rather than salt or freshwater areas. … There has been a 53% decline in wintering populations in the United States.  There has also been a decrease in the Atlantic flyway.”  [Population decreases have been caused by several factors, including drainage of breeding marshland, food supplies being depleted by carp and swan, pollution of wintering areas, disappearance of submerged aquatic vegetation in the Chesapeake Bay, droughts on breeding grounds, oil spills, and illegal hunting and trapping.] Diet “This species dives and obtains food from the bottoms of ponds, lakes, large rivers, open marshes, and muddy bottoms.  Plants are uprooted and the roots are eaten.  This species dives to 20-30 feet. … Important foods include…aquatic plants…, molluscs, insects, caddisfly and midge larvae, dragonflies, [and] small fish.  Chesapeake Bay foods include wild celery, widgeon grass, eelgrass, pondweed, clams and mud crabs.  Juvenile foods include caddisfly larvae, midge larvae, and mayfly nymphs.” SOURCES Used for Audio Mike Burke, “The big, beautiful canvasback: What's not to love?”  Bay Journal, November 2021, available online at https://www.bayjournal.com/eedition/page-43/page_136f4325-b978-5e55-bcec-907f0a04b1fc.html.

Full episode and Show Notes - www.wearelookingsideways.com Welcome to an absolute throwback of an interview in the finest Looking Sideways tradition. Yep, if you liked my recent chat with Ben Powell, for example, you're going to enjoy this conversation with BMX legend ‘Mad' Jon Taylor. For a start, it was face-to-face, which was such a laugh and something I've missed more than I've realised. Secondly, there's the fact that this is a riotous look at the life and times of one of the most beloved figures in UK action sports. Jon is a true living legend of the global BMX scene, somebody who has been there, seen it, done it and has the raucously entertaining anecdotes to prove it. British listeners not hugely familiar with the BMX scene may have seen Jon on the BBC's coverage of the BMX events at the 2020 Tokyo Games, where he sat in alongside Ed Leigh and provided brilliant context to the mainstream audience. I'm not gonna go through the CV, as Jon does this during our conversation far more entertainingly than I'm able to hear. But suffice to say this is a glorious trip through Jon's life and times with one of the biggest characters in the game. I know some listeners have been crying out for this type of episode recently - like I say, it's an instant LS classic in the truest sense of the word. Hope you enjoy our conversation!

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 11-12-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of November 15, 2021.  This revised episode from October 2013 is the first in a series this year of winter-related episodes. MUSIC – ~ 21 sec – Lyrics: “Summer's over, winter's coming.  Summer's gone, the days were long; now the moonlight froze the dawn.  Summer's over, winter's coming.” That's part of “Winter is Coming,” from the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Va.-based band, The Steel Wheels.  It sets the stage for exploring a characteristic feathered feature of the transition from fall to winter.  To start, we drop in on a chattering crowd of eager flyers, who then hear their long-distance flights being announced but no planes are taking off.  If this sounds like a huge airport headache instead of a water event, well, just have a listen for about 35 seconds.SOUNDS and VOICES - ~36 sec – Voice call-outs: “Sora.  Snowy Egret.  Green Heron.  Osprey.  Least Tern.  Piping Plover.  Broad-winged Hawk.”You've been listening to the names and sounds of seven kinds of birds that are known to spend summer in Virginia and then typically migrate out of the Commonwealth for winter.  Fall's arrival means the departure from the Commonwealth of many species of birds—including the first six you just heard—who may nest in spring and summer around Virginia's aquatic areas.  Fall also brings seasonal migrations of land-based birds—including the seventh species you heard, the forest-dwelling Broad-winged Hawk—that travel over watery areas of Virginia, particularly the Chesapeake Bay and the Delmarva Peninsula.  In fact, the concentration of hawks and other migrants along Virginia's Eastern Shore makes it an important and popular location for monitoring bird migration, and the Coastal Virginia Wildlife Observatory maintains a migrant-counting platform in Kiptopeke State Park in Northampton County.  Among various programs at the Observatory, Kiptopeke Hawkwatch has been conducted at that location since 1977.  In fall 2021, over 17,000 migrating hawks and other raptors had been recorded as of late October. Thanks to Lang Elliott for permission to use the other bird sounds, from the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs, and to several Virginia Tech colleagues for calling out the bird names.  Thanks also to The Steel Wheels for permission to use this week's music, and we close with about 20 more seconds of “Winter is Coming.” MUSIC – ~23 sec – Lyrics: “Summer's gone, we're movin' on, can't regret that frozen dawn.  Summer's over, winter's coming.  Summer's over, winter's coming.” SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Ben Cosgrove for his version of “Shenandoah” to open and close the show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 11-5-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of November 8, 2021. MUSIC – ~12 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Racing the Sun,” by The Faux Paws, on that group's 2021 self-titled album, from Great Bear Records.  It opens a revised episode from November 2013, where we explore a sun-driven process that's fundamental to life on earth: photosynthesis, the process where green plants and algae make food, using the energy in sunlight to store chemical energy in the form of glucose.  Photosynthesis is also… VOICES IN SKIT - ~1 min./57 sec. REPORTER: We break into this show to bring you exclusive audio from the Virginia Tech campus, where a shadowy team of scientists are tinkering with the process underlying all life on earth.  They haven't yet revealed their possibly nefarious plans, so let's listen in... SCIENTIST 1: With this terrarium, we have a model system to test our carbon dioxide-manipulation scheme, and soon we'll be ready to control earth's fundamental food-producing process... SCIENTISTS 1 and 2: Photosynthesis! SCIENTIST 2: Are all the components of the system ready?  Green plants with chlorophyll? SCIENTIST 1: Check! SCIENTIST 2: Soil with proper nutrients? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2. Light? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2.  Water? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2.  Air with CO2? SCIENTIST 1.  CO2? SCIENTIST 2.  That's carbon dioxide! SCIENTIST 1.  Oh...right...I mean, check! SCIENTIST 2.  Let the photosynthesis start!  Engage monitoring device! SCIENTIST 1.  CO2 taken in from the air...water and nutrients being absorbed through roots...light falling on leaves.  All systems go!  Light energy is driving CO2 and water to combine and form glucose, the chemical-energy form, while releasing oxygen. SCIENTIST 2.  Apply the CO2 inhibitor! SCIENTIST 1.  Lid applied!  CO2 source blocked...system CO2 levels dropping rapidly...plants responding as expected, using up available CO2. SCIENTIST 2.  Reverse manipulation!  Apply the CO2 increaser! SCIENTIST 1. Lid removed!  CO2 added...plants responding.  Wait, they're responding too fast!  They're growing beyond the walls!  One has me...aieeeeeeee! SCIENTIST 2.  Now it's got me, too!  Noooooooo..... REPORTER: Well, this might be a good time for us to return to our regular show.  Back to you.... END VOICES IN SKIT Unlike this skit, with its far-fetched human-eating plants, there's nothing make-believe about Earth life's reliance on photosynthesis using sunlight, chlorophyll, nutrients, water, and carbon dioxide to make food.  Moreover, photosynthesis is a fundamental aspect of understanding and responding to climate change.  Photosynthesis millions of years ago created the hydrocarbon compounds that constitute today's fossil fuels, and photosynthesis now—absorbing and storing some of the carbon dioxide released in fossil fuel burning—has an important role in reducing Earth's carbon dioxide levels, warming, and other climate-change impacts.  For example, the capacity for photosynthesizing trees to take up atmospheric carbon dioxide was one aspect of the “Declaration on Forests and Land Use” at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP26, in Glasgow, Scotland, from October 31 to November 12, 2021. Thanks to Eli Heilker and John Kidd for participating in this episode.  Thanks also to Andrew VanNorstrand for permission to use part of “Racing the Sun.”  We close with another musical selection appropriate for the climate challenges facing the COP26 meeting and all of us.  Here's about 25 seconds of “On a Ship,” by Blacksburg, Va., musician Kat Mills. MUSIC - ~ 24 sec – Lyrics: “We are riding on a ship,” then instrumental.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-29-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for Halloween 2021.  Besides focusing on autumn's festival of fun and fright, this episode is part of a series this fall about water connections to the human body and human biology. SOUND – ~9 sec That eerie sound of a tree creaking in October wind sets a seasonal stage for a Halloween challenge: exploring how Halloween, water, and human biology all connect.  Sound like quite a trick?  Well, have a listen to some Halloween music for about 50 seconds, and then we'll treat you to some examples. MUSIC - ~50 sec – instrumental You've been listening to “A Little Fright Music,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music.  And here are six matches of Halloween creatures or images with water in the human body. 1.  Skeleton images rattle around everywhere for Halloween, and in living skeletons water is a significant component of bones and cartilage.  2.  Pretend blood covers many-a Halloween costume, and over half of the volume of blood is plasma, which in turn is over 90 percent water, and water is also a major component of blood cells. 3.  A muscular costume is part of pretending to be a super-strong character like Wonder Woman or Superman; and water plays a significant role in muscle structure and function; in turn, muscle is an important water-storage area for the body. 4.  The monster in movie versions of “Frankenstein” was brought to life by electricity, and the cells of our nervous system transmit messages though electrochemical impulses, using sodium and potassium ions in a water-based solution. 5.  If fiery or icy creatures need some temperature regulation, water's the body fluid that does it. And 6.  Flashing and watching from many creatures on Halloween night are eyes, either scary, suspenseful, or super-powered; and eyes have chambers containing aqueous humor and vitreous humour, two fluids that consist mostly of water and that maintain the shape of the eyes. This Halloween, imagine being a creature that's about 60 percent composed of an amazing substance with unique powers to dissolve other substances, absorb and release heat, and withstand being compressed.  What would you be?  Why, the water-based human being that you are! Thanks to Torrin Hallett for composing this week's music for Virginia Water Radio, and we close with another listen to the last few seconds of “A Little Fright Music.” MUSIC - ~13 sec – instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Ben Cosgrove for his version of “Shenandoah” to open and close the show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

HALLOW'S EVE Good intentions may pave the way to ruin, but when Fran - a precocious 11-year old - sets out to rescue what she fervently hopes is a kidnapped child, Halloween may never be the same! Written and produced by Julie Hoverson Cast List Fran - E. Vickery Bobbie - M. Lane Officer Hooper - S. Connor Grigg - C. Hornaday Bool - B. Poole Kidnappers - J. Harvey & Mr.  Synyster Timmy & Billy - B. Lomatewama & R. LeBoeuf Mrs. Hooper - A. Kirby Thompson - S. Hoverson Ari & News Report - J. Hoverson Music:  Kevin MacLeod (Incompetech.com) Recorded with the assistance of Ryan Hirst of Neohoodoo Studio Editing and Sound:   Julie Hoverson Cover Photo: Jeff Mackay (courtesy of Stock Xchange.com)   "What kind of a place is it? Why it's a suburban street, where else would you find...goblins?"   ***************************************** This was one of the original episodes I had ready for the 2008 Halloween season.  It's set in a sort of 1950s era of classic monster movies.  I never actually specify that, but references to bobby socks and Corliss Archer (an old time radio show) should be a bit of a clue. One silly thing I should note in here is Fred and Bob (and in other episodes June and Kathy as well) - these are my generic names for extra characters who speak but don't really have personalities, and show up in surprising numbers if you look over the cast lists for a lot of my shows.  I found that I would waste time trying to come up with interesting names for all these background characters, and lose my train of thought and it would stall my writing, so I just dub the first such characters Bob and Fred for males and June and Kathy for females, and move on.  Later, they may become more specific and get real names, but often enough they just remain half generic.  I also find it makes them slightly easier to keep track of than "man1" or "woman B" Naming characters is often half the fun.  You see me play with names in many of my shows - D. Meeks in "A Stitch in Time", where Dougie jokes about "D. Meeks inheriting de Earth," or the way so many people in the vampire world of "The Big Dark" took new "vampire names" that are some variation on the characters from Stoker's Dracula. The names of episodes are often some kind of pun or inference, as well.  Not so much Hallow's Eve, but The Big Dark is a riff on The Big Sleep (which was a euphemism for death, in the Chandler novel), and the most difficult title to explain "Crumping The Devil" - crumping being a sort of hip hop adjacent challenge dance, conflated with my vague memory of story about an old woman Mrs. Crump who was so awful the devil wouldn't even take her. ***************************************** ALL HALLOW'S EVE Cast: Olivia, host Barbara "BOBBIE" Chandler [16], babysitter TIMMY Martin, child [9] FRAN Hooper, child [10] BILLY Jones, child [8] OFFICER HOOPER [30s] HOOPER [30s] GRIGG [alien] [adult] BOOL [alien child] FRED [30s], a thug BOB [30s], a thug ARI [8], kidnapped child THOMPSON [50s] RADIO VOICE MUSIC OLIVIA     Did you have any trouble finding it?  What do you mean, what kind of a place is it?  Why, it's a suburban street, can't you tell?  Where else would you find "goblins"?  MUSIC     SOMETHING CHILDLIKE   SCENE 1.    OUTSIDE, STREET SOUND    FOOTSTEPS, COSTUMES BOBBIE    There you go, that one's got a light, now shh!

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 25, 2021.  This episode is part of a series this fall about water connections to the human body and human biology.  We start this week with three mystery sounds, all related to a very numerous group of disease-causing, or pathogenic, microbes that have enormous impacts on human health.  Have a listen for about 20 seconds, and see if know this microbial group.  And here's a hint: big hits on social media are said to spread like this group. SOUNDS – ~19 sec If you guessed viruses, you're right!  You heard a person coughing due to a viral disease; handwashing, an important method of reducing viral transmission; and a spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol, an effective disinfectant against many kinds of viruses.  With attention focused this fall both on the COVID-19 coronavirus and the annual influenza virus season, we explore in this episode some basic information about viruses and some viral connections to water.  Here are 10 key points about viruses. 1.  Viruses are one of four groups of microbes responsible for human disease, along with bacteria, fungi, and protozoa, which are single-celled animals.  As a group, viruses are the smallest of these microbes, although some are larger than some bacteria. 2.  Viruses aren't made up of cells, but instead exist as particles composed primarily of molecules of protein and nucleic acids, that is, DNA or RNA.  They require a cellular host for reproduction, called replication. 3.  Viruses are more abundant than all of the cellular-based living things on earth. 4.  All living things are infected by viruses. 5.  Viruses don't always cause disease in infected hosts, but many kinds do cause significant diseases in humans, other animals, and plants. 6.  Viral disease can result from viruses taking over or inhibiting their host's cellular biochemical processes, or by cell destruction as new virus particles exit cells after replication. 7.  Depending on their type, viruses can be spread through air, in water, from surfaces, by animal vectors, or through exchange of blood or other body substances. 8.  Water-related spread of viruses can occur through water contaminated with human waste, and through animal vectors connected to water, particularly mosquitoes. 9.  Significant human diseases from water-borne viruses include intestinal disease, particularly diarrhea; hepatitis, or liver inflammation; inflammations of the brain, spinal cord, or heart; and possibly cancer.  Viral diseases spread by mosquitoes include Yellow Fever, Dengue, West Nile, and others. And last, but not least, handwashing with clean water and soap is important for reducing the spread of viruses through objects and surfaces—collectively called fomites—with which humans come into contact. Thanks to Freesound.org user n__audioman for making the coughing sound available for public use.  Here's hoping we all hear less of that sound and more of the handwashing and other preventative measures that keep viruses—water-borne and otherwise—somewhat at bay.

It was another weekend of low scores in Las Vegas, but Sunday felt like 2016 as Rory and Rickie fought it out at the CJ Cup. Hosts Alex Lauzon and Michael Russell break down the victory for Rory, and what this means for the 32 year old who just notched win #20 (1:57). Over on the LPGA Tour, they got to have a fantastic playoff under the lights. Michael and Alex will do whatever it takes to make this kind of fantasy situation play-out everywhere (7:52). The Tour heads to Japan again this weekend for the ZoZo Championship, where Michael is hoping to see a Sunday round of Xander Schauffele and Hideki Matsuyama (10:07). In Tuned In, Michael's getting his October horror fix with the classic "Dracula," even if it's got a horrible Keanu Reeves. Alex, meanwhile, is still going with the viral "Squid Game" (11:51). Long Drive is certainly having a moment, and past guest and long driver Josh Koch returns to the podcast to chat with Alex about his great year and hitting bombs alongside Bryson DeChambeau (14:58). Michael is feeling a strong pull back to his childhood after watching the highlights of the first ever Balloon World Cup, and Alex is wondering if there is a spot on the team for next year (43:12). The football weekend got off to a hot start with Alex's morning tailgate at Texas, but quickly disintegrated from there as his college bets, and the guy's pro's, put up a lot of "Ls" (46:17). Alex's Red Sox are putting up the W's in the ALCS, while Michael has decided to go all-in for his "local" Atlanta Braves (48:31). And as the guys #AlwaysAlwaysEndWithFood, Alex is ready to declare his "Basic Bitch" status, while Michael made a special trip to the Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah for an episode of the Always End With Food Podcast (50:07).

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-15-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 18, 2021. SOUND – ~8 sec This week, those abrupt stops to the sounds of the Roanoke River, Gray Tree Frogs, and a household water faucet set the stage for an episode marking the observance of “Imagine a Day without Water,” to be held this year on October 21.  We start with some music designed to help you do such imagining.  Have a listen for about 40 seconds. MUSIC  - ~42 sec – instrumental You've been listening to “Flow Stopper,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music.  Besides flowing rivers, calling frogs, and household faucets, almost any aspect of life could be affected by a lack of water, including the biological structures and functions that make life possible.  Increasing the awareness of water uses and needs is a goal of the “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign.  According to the event's Web site, the effort is, quote, “a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment,” unquote.  The event is part of the “Value of Water Campaign,” focused on water infrastructure needs.  These campaigns are coordinated by the US Water Alliance, a non-profit organization made up of people from water utilities, government, business, other non-profits, communities, and research establishments. Worldwide, billions of people don't have to imagine lacking good water.  According to the United Nations, as of 2019 over 2 billion people lacked access to safely managed drinking water, and over 4 billion people lacked access to safely managed sanitation. In the United States, the American Society of Civil Engineers' water infrastructure “Report Card” for 2021 estimated over $1 trillion needed through 2029 for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater, with $434 billion of that not yet funded. And in Virginia, the Department of Environmental Quality's 2020 “Water Resources Report” identified several water challenges, including maintaining groundwater availability over the next 50 years; coordinating water planning among localities; gauging the impact of unpermitted water withdrawals; understanding stream water quality and ecology; and investing in water-resources personnel, science, and education. Water is fundamental for energy, commerce, industry, agriculture, aquatic and terrestrial life, and human biology.  Imagining a day without water—and learning about where water's lacking—can help us envision and work toward well-watered future days. Thanks to Torrin Hallett for composing this week's music for Virginia Water Radio, and we close with another listen to the last 10 seconds of “Flow Stopper.” MUSIC  - 10 sec – instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Ben Cosgrove for his version of “Shenandoah” to open and close the show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

Con đường nào sẽ giúp du lịch phục hồi trong giai đoạn chuyển tiếp, mà hứa hẹn sẽ kéo dài? Dịch Covid-19 đã giáng một đòn nặng vào nền kinh tế Việt Nam. Ngành dịch vụ du lịch - lữ hành, chiếm khoảng 10% GDP của Việt Nam, là một trong những lĩnh vực chịu ảnh hưởng nhiều nhất. Ông chủ Vietravel - công ty du lịch hàng đầu Việt Nam, với hãng hàng không chuyên về lữ hành đầu tiên ở Việt Nam vừa khai trương cuối năm 2020 - thừa nhận là đại dịch đã kéo công ty trở về thời kỳ khoảng 15 năm về trước. Một công ty 1.700 nhân viên mà có những thời điểm đến sở làm chỉ còn 15 - 20 người. Tình hình tại Vietravel cũng là không khí chung của ngành du lịch, khi hầu hết điểm tham quan nổi tiếng phải đóng cửa, đa số các thành phố lớn bị lockdown. An toàn cho khách, an toàn cho dân tại chỗ Đảo Bé, huyện đảo Lý Sơn, tỉnh Quảng Ngãi, với những bãi biển trong xanh, hoang sơ, những bãi đá nham thạch trầm tích núi lửa đìu hiu vì vắng khách. Đảo Bé cũng là nơi mà nhiều người ví như một « bảo tàng sống » về lịch sử quần đảo Hoàng Sa từ nhiều năm qua từng thu hút khách với mô hình du lịch phục vụ khách tại nhà (homestay), thân tình, chu đáo, khiến du khách một đi ắt sẽ muốn trở lại. Viễn cảnh trở lại với ngày ấy còn xa vời. Ông Nguyễn Minh Trí, giám đốc sở Văn Hóa - Thể Thao - Du Lịch tỉnh Quảng Ngãi, chia sẻ : « Bây giờ ở đâu cũng vậy thôi. Muốn hay không muốn cũng phải kiểm soát được dịch đã. Chừng nào mà người ta cảm nhận được độ an toàn, người ta sẽ đi thôi. Còn những phương án mình đưa ra, ví dụ như anh tiêm đủ 2 mũi vac-xin, rồi trước khi đi xét nghiệm âm tính… thì cũng có thể, nhưng những cái đó mình đưa ra thì cũng là những điều kiện để mở cửa du lịch, nhưng thực ra hiệu quả cũng nhưng cái đó nó cũng chưa hẳn. Hiện nay ở Việt Nam cũng vẫn phải là kiểm soát được dịch. Còn ưu tiên chính vẫn là dành cho vấn đề sản xuất. Còn việc đi du lịch, thì tự nó đến giai đoạn mà mình hiểu là nếu người ta cảm giác an toàn rồi, thì nó sẽ quay trở lại thôi ». An toàn cho du khách, an toàn cho người dân tại chỗ là điều kiện tiên quyết để mở cửa du lịch trở lại. Ông Huỳnh Tấn Vinh, chủ tịch danh dự Hiệp hội Du lịch Đà Nẵng, công ty Cổ phần Khu du lịch Bắc Mỹ An - The Furama Resort Da Nang, chia sẻ : « Ở Đà Nẵng, lượng tiêm vac-xin sẽ hướng đến 70 đến 80%, miễn dịch cộng đồng sẽ được cải thiện hơn, thì khi đó mới bắt đầu nghĩ đến chuyện đón du khách. Hiện nay lộ trình của Đà Nẵng là thứ nhất đón du khách của thành phố Đà Nẵng, những người dân nào đã tiêm vac-xin rồi, thì họ có thể trải nghiệm du lịch ngay trong thành phố mình. Và nếu cuộc thử nghiệm này ổn, từng bước mở rộng đón du khách nội địa của Việt Nam. Và nếu quá trình này ổn, thì nghĩ đến chuyện đón du khách quốc tế. Mà cho dù du khách nào, điều kiện tiên quyết là người đó phải được tiêm vac-xin đầy đủ. Tôi nghĩ rằng, nếu lộ trình như vậy, thì triển vọng đến giữa năm 2022 có thể mở cửa đón khách nội địa. Và đến giữa cuối năm 2022 có thể đón khách quốc tế được ». Trước hết là « nội địa » Trong lúc khả năng mở cửa đón du khách quốc tế còn đang được chính quyền dè dặt xem xét, du lịch nội địa được nhìn nhận như là nguồn lực quan trọng đầu tiên trong giai đoạn tìm cách thích ứng với dịch bệnh, mà theo nhiều chuyên gia y tế, dự kiến sẽ có kéo dài đến ít nhất vào cuối năm tới. Ông Ken Atkinson, phó chủ tịch Hội đồng tư vấn du lịch Việt Nam nhận định : « … tôi nghĩ, vấn đề quan trọng nhất là đã có những người tập trung vào du lịch trong nước, bởi vì đó là những gì trong tầm tay. Tôi nghĩ du lịch nội địa, trong quá khứ vốn rất ít được quan tâm, hoặc mọi người chưa quan tâm đúng mức đến du lịch nội địa. Chúng ta cần nhớ rằng trước Covid, đã có gần 85 triệu khách du lịch trong nước so với 18 triệu khách du lịch nước ngoài, mặc dù doanh thu từ khách du lịch nội địa chỉ chiếm khoảng 1/3 tổng doanh thu. Tầng lớp trung lưu ở Việt Nam hiện đang phát triển rất nhanh, hoặc đã phát triển rất nhanh và thu nhập của họ cũng tăng rất nhanh, vào giai đoạn trước đại dịch Covid. Khu vực trong nước đáng được quan tâm hơn nhiều, so với những gì mà lĩnh vực đang nhận được. Tôi nghĩ đây là một lợi thế ». Để khơi thông, cần một « cơ chế liên ngành » Để phục hồi ngành du lịch, cần phải có một nỗ lực rất lớn từ phía chính phủ. Ông Ken Atkinson đề nghị một cơ chế liên ngành đặc biệt của chính phủ để hướng dẫn việc mở cửa trở lại ngành du lịch. Bên cạnh du lịch nội địa, phó chủ tịch Hội đồng tư vấn du lịch Việt Nam hy vọng chính quyền sớm thí điểm ít nhất là trước cuối năm nay, việc đón du khách quốc tế : « … tôi là một thành viên của ban cố vấn du lịch Hiệp hội Vietnam Tourism Advisory Board. Một trong những việc đang làm của chúng tôi là thúc đẩy chính phủ Việt Nam thành lập một cơ chế liên ngành đặc biệt để giúp hướng dẫn việc mở cửa trở lại của ngành. Cơ chế liên ngành đặc biệt đó cần bao gồm tất cả các bên có liên quan, bao gồm một số bộ, như bộ Văn Hóa và Du Lịch, bộ Giao Thông Vận Tải, bộ Ngoại Giao, bộ Công An, cũng như các bên liên quan trong số các đối tác Việt Nam và các đối tác nước ngoài lớn trong ngành du lịch. Điều quan trọng là cơ chế liên ngành đặc biệt này phải có được đủ thẩm quyền phát triển các quy định và thể thức, để chúng ta có thể mở lại một cách an toàn, mở lại theo kinh nghiệm trong nước, cũng như theo kinh nghiệm ở các quốc gia khác đã mở lại biên giới, bao gồm một số quốc gia châu Âu, cũng như Thái Lan, Singapore. Vì vậy, chúng ta có thể học hỏi trong khi làm, để tránh rơi vào bất kỳ cạm bẫy lớn nào mà các quốc gia khác có thể đã trải qua. Chúng ta cũng cần phải có kế hoạch tiếp thị sớm, bởi vì tất cả các quốc gia cạnh tranh với chúng ta đều đang tranh giành khách du lịch nước ngoài, cho dù là khách du lịch đường dài hay khách khu vực. Họ đã bắt đầu tiến hành các chiến dịch lớn, như bây giờ chúng ta thấy trên truyền hình về du lịch Thái Lan. Đó là đối thủ cạnh tranh lớn của chúng ta. Vì vậy, chúng ta cần phải chuẩn bị và chúng ta cần phải chi tiền cho việc xúc tiến và quảng cáo, để thúc đẩy một thực tế là Việt Nam sẽ mở cửa kinh doanh trở lại ngay khi cơ hội đến. Nhưng bạn không thể để đến lúc đó rồi mới thực sự chuẩn bị. Chúng ta cần bắt đầu chuẩn bị ngay từ bây giờ. Chúng ta cần chuẩn bị sẵn phương tiện, chúng ta cần được phân bổ ngân sách và tôi nghĩ đó là nơi chính phủ thực sự có thể thúc đẩy và giúp đỡ ngành ». Thách thức hàng đầu: Duy trì nhân lực Giảm thuế, gia hạn nộp thuế, miễn thuế, miễn giảm tiền thuê đất, giảm lãi suất vay ngân hàng… là hàng loạt các biện pháp mà giới kinh doanh du lịch nói riêng và đông đảo kinh tế gia đòi hỏi khẩn thiết từ Nhà nước. Trong một đóng góp cho « Chương trình phục hồi, phát triển gắn với nâng cao năng lực nội tại và tính tự chủ của nền kinh tế giai đoạn 2022-2023 », tiến sĩ Nguyễn Đình Cung, nguyên viện trưởng Viện Nghiên cứu Quản lý Kinh tế Trung ương, nhấn mạnh đến việc Nhà nước cần ra quyết định đầu tư mạnh, « cần mạnh chi, nếu không chi là có tội. Không thể chi tiêu bủn xỉn như thời gian vừa rồi trong đại họa như thế này… Giải pháp phải mạnh và ngay lập tức, cách thức ứng xử phải phi truyền thống chứ nếu cứ áp dụng hành chính tuần tự như vừa rồi thì rất khó với hoàn cảnh nước sôi lửa bỏng » (Bài « Gói giải cứu nào cho nền kinh tế? », Vietnamnet, ngày 07/10/2021). Bên cạnh đòi hỏi Nhà nước hỗ trợ tài chính cho doanh nghiệp nói trên, câu chuyện nhân lực của ngành là mối lo hàng đầu và thường trực với các nhà hoạt động du lịch. Theo ông Ken Atkinson, phó chủ tịch Hội đồng tư vấn du lịch Việt Nam,  « bất lợi lớn là đã có rất nhiều lao động phải rời khỏi ngành này. Họ đã bị sa thải, mất việc hoàn toàn, hoặc ngừng làm việc trong một thời gian ngắn, và họ đã đi làm bên ngoài lĩnh vực du lịch.... cảm giác chung đặc biệt trong giới các nhà kinh doanh khách sạn và công ty lữ hành là sẽ rất khó khăn để đưa những người đó trở lại với nghề. Vì vậy, bạn biết đấy, một mặt chúng ta sẽ mở cửa ngay bây giờ, mặt khác rất nhiều doanh nghiệp sẽ gặp khó khăn lớn để có được đội ngũ nhân viên có trình độ ». Thiên nhiên - Nông nghiệp sinh thái - Văn hóa cộng đồng…   Chúng tôi liên lạc được với ông Nguyễn Trí Nghiệp, ông chủ Nông trang Island, vườn cây giống chất lượng cao nổi tiếng nằm ven sông Tiền Giang, thuộc vùng đất cù lao tỉnh Vĩnh Long. Vốn là một cơ sở kinh tế trang trại khởi nguồn từ năm 1985, kế thừa từ người cha, lão nông Tám Hổ, một nghệ nhân đờn ca tài tử, cách nay mươi năm, ông Nguyễn Trí Nghiệp đã bắt đầu phát triển mô hình du lịch sinh thái kết hợp trang trại ươm cây giống. Người được mệnh danh là « Vua » cây giống miền Tây từ hơn 30 năm nay miệt mài say mê với công việc sưu tầm và phát triển các giống quý, đặc biệt là cây ăn trái như chanh thơm, chanh Limca, dừa thơm Island, xoài xanh Đài Loan, mít nghệ (M99-I), ổi xá lị không hạt, sầu riêng CVHL Ri6… Cây giống từ vườn ươm Nông trang Island tỏa ra khắp cả nước, cũng như đến với nhiều thị trường quốc tế, như Lào, Cam Bốt, Trung Quốc, Miến Điện. Cơ sở du lịch nông nghiệp - sinh thái của ông Nguyễn Trí Nghiệp chủ yếu đón khách nước ngoài. Trong bối cảnh đại dịch, triển vọng khách quốc tế trở lại còn xa, ông Nghiệp cũng đang tính đến việc chuyển sang thu hút du khách nội địa. Quan tâm đặc biệt của ông là duy trì được toàn bộ đội ngũ 10 nhân viên của công ty qua suốt mùa đại dịch. Trước khi kết thúc cuộc trao đổi qua điện thoại, ông chia sẻ với chúng tôi cảm giác « xốn xang trong lòng » khi chứng kiến những đoàn người từ thành phố Hồ Chí Minh lũ lượt đổ về miền Tây qua ngả Vĩnh Long, trời mưa cũng như trời nắng. Ông chia sẻ nỗi đau, nước mắt của những người buộc phải ra đi, với nỗi lo chung về viễn cảnh thất nghiệp, công nghiệp thiếu nhân công trầm trọng sau cuộc di tản khổng lồ. Tuy nhiên, ông chủ Nông trang Island cũng tin tưởng nông nghiệp sẽ tiếp tục phát triển mạnh sau đại dịch. … nền tảng cho du lịch bền vững « Cả một thung lũng bất tận xôn xao lúa, được bao bọc bởi những ngọn đèo hùng vĩ, được tưới tắm bởi nhiều con thác lớn. Thung lũng Khau Phạ có thể nói đẹp ít nơi nào sánh bằng », trên đây là lời giới thiệu về Khau Phạ của Hiệp hội. Khau Phạ Friends (KPF) - Những người bạn của Khau Phạ, « một tổ chức phi lợi nhuận hỗ trợ cộng đồng dân tộc thiểu số phát triển bền vững thông qua các hoạt động du lịch », mới ra đời năm 2018. Thung lũng Khau Phạ với con đèo Khau Phạ cùng tên, một trong « tứ đại đỉnh đèo » huyền thoại của vùng Tây Bắc (thung lũng Khau Phạ thuộc huyện Mù Căng Chải, tỉnh Yên Bái), nơi cư trú lâu đời của các cộng đồng người Thái, người H'Mông. Doanh nghiệp xã hội « Những người bạn của Khau Phạ » có mục tiêu hỗ trợ cộng đồng người Thái tại bản Ít phát triển mô hình « du lịch cộng đồng ». Chị Thảo Nguyên, đại diện của Khau Phạ Friends, cho biết về ý nghĩa của mô hình du lịch cộng đồng và hoạt động của bà con bản Ít trong thời gian du lịch bị đình chỉ do đại dịch : « Chúng tôi là một mô hình du lịch không cần nhiều đầu tư. Chúng tôi chỉ là những người đồng hành và hỗ trợ bà con xây dựng những cơ sở lưu trú, những homestay dựa trên chính những gian nhà sàn của họ. Và nghề chính của họ vẫn là làm nông. Họ vẫn canh tác, vẫn làm những hoạt động, như trồng lúa, trồng ngô, sắn trên nương, và chăn nuôi các gia súc như trâu, bò, lợn gà. Cái nghề du lịch là một nghề tay trái với người dân bản địa ở đây. Trong suốt quá trình dịch bệnh diễn ra, bà con không thể đón được khách, thì bà con quay trở lại với công việc chính của họ là làm nông. Thay vì đón khách, thì chúng tôi hỗ trợ họ những sản phẩm khác, mang tính văn hóa, tức là những nông sản đặc sản như là sản phẩm cốm, như là ‘‘khẩu hang'' - một loại lúa nếp non, người ta có thể chế biến thành xôi… Những hoạt động canh tác bản địa có những câu chuyện riêng, có điểm nhấn riêng cho sản phẩm nông sản ấy, chúng tôi có thể giúp bà con xây dựng thương hiệu nông sản sạch và tiêu thụ nông sản ấy, để ngay cả khi bà con không thể đón khách thì bà con vẫn có thêm một sinh kế mới, từ việc canh tác nông nghiệp ngay tại địa phương của mình ». Giờ đây, trong khi chờ đợi khách quốc tế trở lại, hiệp hội Những người bạn của Khau Phạ hướng dẫn người dân trong bản chuyển hướng sẵn sàng mở cửa đón khách trong nước, một khi việc đi lại trong nội địa thông suốt. *** Khủng hoảng đại dịch Covid vừa là một khủng hoảng do dịch bệnh, do biến chủng Delta có mức độ lây lan mạnh mẽ, nhưng cũng vừa là một cuộc khủng hoảng do nhiều chính sách « cực đoan » với dịch bệnh từ phía chính quyền tại nhiều nơi, đã để lại những hậu quả nghiêm trọng đối với cư dân, đặc biệt một số địa phương miền nam như thành phố Hồ Chí Minh. Phục hồi kinh tế nói chung, cũng như du lịch nói riêng sẽ không thể một sớm một chiều. Quá trình phục hồi du lịch phụ thuộc nhiều vào khả năng của chính quyền, trước hết là ngành y tế đưa ra được những chính sách phòng chống dịch minh bạch, bài bản, dựa trên những cơ sở khoa học thực sự. Theo nhiều nhà quan sát, những biện pháp thất thường của chính quyền các cấp như phong tỏa đột ngột, thủ tục nhiêu khê, ngăn sông cấm chợ, cách ly khắc nghiệt, xét nghiệm cưỡng bức… như trong thời gian qua, nếu tiếp tục để tái diễn, cho dù ở mức độ nhỏ hơn nhiều, cũng sẽ gây ra các tổn hại khôn lường, một khi các hoạt động du lịch bắt đầu quá trình hồi phục khó khăn. An toàn, Sinh thái, Hòa bình Tuy nhiên, khủng hoảng Covid không chỉ là một khủng hoảng về dịch tễ. Đây còn là một cuộc khủng hoảng về mối quan hệ của con người với môi trường - sinh thái, trong đó có khủng hoảng của lối sống du lịch tiêu thụ… Nguyên nhân trực tiếp của virus gây bệnh Covid-19, xuất hiện cụ thể như thế nào, là điều còn cần tiếp tục điều tra kỹ. Tuy nhiên, như nhiều nghiên cứu khoa học đã chỉ ra, việc tàn phá thiên nhiên quy mô lớn là một nguyên nhân chủ yếu khiến nhiều giống loài virus nguy hiểm ngày càng dễ dàng tiếp cận với xã hội con người. Thời gian đại dịch, thời gian phong tỏa, giãn cách cũng chính là thời gian để chiêm nghiệm về mối quan hệ con người - thiên nhiên ấy (không kể những ai đang phải quay cuồng với cuộc mưu sinh, hay trong tình trạng đói khát cùng cực).   Du lịch sinh thái - cộng đồng, đến với thiên nhiên, với những cộng đồng bản địa gắn bó lâu đời với một môi trường sinh thái mang lại một cơ hội cho con người tìm lại niềm vui sống với thiên nhiên, trong các hoạt động canh tác nông nghiệp bền vững, trong môi trường giãn cách thực sự, ít nguy cơ lây nhiễm, là một hướng đi có triển vọng không chỉ trong giai đoạn ước tính hơn nửa năm trước mắt, khi Việt Nam tìm cách thích ứng với bệnh dịch Covid-19, trong bối cảnh luồng du khách từ nước ngoài còn bị hạn chế rất nhiều. Đây rất có thể cũng sẽ là hướng phát triển chủ đạo của du lịch trong tương lai, khi con người chú trọng nhiều hơn, sao cho phát triển kinh tế không hủy hoại thiên nhiên, lợi ích của một cộng đồng này không chà đạp lên lợi ích của cộng đồng khác. Đảo Bé (Lý Sơn) ven bờ Biển Đông, vùng miệt vườn cù lao ươm đầy cây trái ven sông Tiền Giang đồng bằng Cửu Long, thung lũng người Thái, người H'Mông đèo Khau Phạ - Tây Bắc… khi nào sẽ được trở lại đón khách ? Một hướng đi cổ vũ cho du lịch « Xanh », vừa Xanh về mặt an toàn dịch bệnh, vừa Xanh về ý nghĩa môi trường - sinh thái, và Xanh trong quan hệ hòa bình giữa người với người rất có thể là chìa khóa cho sự hồi phục bền vững của du lịch Việt Nam. RFI Tiếng Việt xin chân thành cảm ơn chị Thảo Nguyên, các ông Ken Atkinson, Nguyễn Trí Nghiệp, Nguyễn Minh Trí và Huỳnh Tấn Vinh, đã dành thời gian cho Tạp chí Việt Nam trong dòng thời sự.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-8-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 25, 2021.  This revised episode from November 2017 is part of a series this fall of episodes on water connections to the human body and human biology. We start with a public health mystery sound.  Have a listen for about 35 seconds, and see if you can guess what seasonal, precautionary procedure is taking place.  And here's a hint: thinking feverishlycould influence your answer. SOUNDS and VOICES - ~36 sec “Any problems with any vaccines before?”“No.”“Feeling OK today?  No fever or anything like that?”“No.”“And no allergies to foods or medications that you're aware of?”“No.”  …“So, you know, a little bit of arm soreness; that's probably the most of it.  Redness, irritation.   Might be kind of tired for a day or so, or even a low-grade fever or a headache is possible and normal.  If that were to happen, whatever you take for a headache is fine.  Any questions about anything?”“No.”“All right.” …“All right, leave that bandage on for about 10 minutes or so, and take it off anytime you remember after that.  And here's your copy for your records.  Thanks.”“Thank you.”“Have a good day.”If you guessed, a flu shot, you're right!  You heard an influenza vaccination being given in October 2017 at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.  Flu season arrives every year with colder weather, bringing the potential to cause fever, body aches, and other symptoms, some quite serious or even fatal.  The flu affects millions of people in the United States each year, and health agencies like U.S. Centers for the Disease Control and Prevention and the Virginia Department of Health encourage vaccination for everyone older than six months, with some exceptions. But what does the flu have to do with water?  Consider these three connections. First, drinking plenty of fluids is a commonly prescribed treatment for flu sufferers in order to help prevent dehydration resulting from increased body temperature and other responses to the viral infection.  Infants, children, and the elderly are particularly at risk for dehydration. Second, the flu virus is transmitted between humans by respiratory droplets, and researchers have found that transmission is affected by air temperature and humidity. Specifically, transmission occurs more easily in cold, dry air, such as is typically found during fall and winter in temperate areas like Virginia. Third, waterfowl and shorebirds are among the various kinds of birds that harbor avian flu viruses, and water contaminated with aquatic birds' waste can potentially harbor avian flu for some time.  Understanding the factors related to the occurrence and transmission of avian viruses—including the role of contaminated water—is important in monitoring avian flu and its potential to spread to other birds, mammals, or humans. Flu season is upon us, and the CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine by the end of October.  So if you hear this… VOICE - ~3 sec – “Are you here for a flu shot?” …now you'll have not only a health connection for the flu, but some hydrological ones, too. Thanks to staff of Kroger Pharmacy and Hokie Wellness for lending their voices to this episode. We close with some music for, or rather, against the flu.  Here's about 30 seconds of “Shots,” written by Wilson Stern and performed in a 2014, flu-shot-promoting video by the University of Florida's Student Health Care Center. MUSIC - ~28 sec Lyrics:“Last year less than half the population got their flu shot.  Why you wanna be stuck at home with a fever when you could be making this party hot?”“I heard that shot made you ill.”“Naw, son, that news ain't for real.  It tells your body what the virus looks like, so it knows how to deal”“Why you tellin' me this?  I got my flu shot last year.”“This virus mutates constantly, we got new strains here.”“Shots, shots, shots, shots….” SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT TYPES AND NAMES OF INFLUENZA VIRUSESThe following information is quoted from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), “Types of Influenza Viruses,” November 18, 2019, online at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/viruses/types.htm.“There are four types of influenza viruses: A, B, C and D.   Human influenza A and B viruses cause seasonal epidemics of disease (known as the flu season) almost every winter in the United States.  Influenza A viruses are the only influenza viruses known to cause flu pandemics, i.e., global epidemics of flu disease.  A pandemic can occur when a new and very different influenza A virus emerges that both infects people and has the ability to spread efficiently between people.  Influenza type C infections generally cause mild illness and are not thought to cause human flu epidemics.  Influenza D viruses primarily affect cattle and are not known to infect or cause illness in people. ”Influenza A viruses are divided into subtypes based on two proteins on the surface of the virus: the hemagglutinin (H) and the neuraminidase (N).  There are 18 different hemagglutinin subtypes and 11 different neuraminidase subtypes (H1 through H18 and N1 through N11 respectively).  …Current sub-types of influenza A viruses that routinely circulate in people include: A (H1N1) and A (H3N2).  In the spring of 2009, a new influenza A (H1N1) virus emerged to cause illness in people. … “Currently circulating influenza A(H1N1) viruses are related to the pandemic 2009 H1N1 virus that emerged in the spring of 2009 and caused a flu pandemic ( see CDC 2009 H1N1 Flu website for more information).  This virus, scientifically called the ‘A(H1N1)pdm09 virus,' and more generally called ‘2009 H1N1,' has continued to circulate seasonally since then.  These H1N1 viruses have undergone relatively small genetic changes and changes to their antigenic properties (i.e., the properties of the virus that affect immunity) over time.“Of all the influenza viruses that routinely circulate and cause illness in people, influenza A(H3N2) viruses tend to change more rapidly, both genetically and antigenically. … “Influenza B viruses are not divided into subtypes, but instead are further classified into two lineages: B/Yamagata and B/Victoria. …Influenza B viruses generally change more slowly in terms of their genetic and antigenic properties than influenza A viruses, especially influenza A(H3N2) viruses.  Influenza surveillance data from recent years shows co-circulation of influenza B viruses from both lineages in the United States and around the world.  However, the proportion of influenza B viruses from each lineage that circulate can vary by geographic location.“CDC follows an internationally accepted naming convention for influenza viruses.  This convention was accepted by WHO [World Health Organization] in 1979 and published in February 1980 in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, 58(4):585-591 (1980) (see A revision of the system of nomenclature for influenza viruses: a WHO Memorandum[854 KB, 7 pages]).  The approach uses the following components: *the antigenic type (e.g., A, B, C); *the host of origin (e.g., swine, equine, chicken, etc.; for human-origin viruses, no host of origin designation is given); *geographical origin (e.g., Denver, Taiwan, etc.); *strain number (e.g., 15, 7, etc.); *year of isolation (e.g., 57, 2009, etc.); *for influenza A viruses, the hemagglutinin and neuraminidase antigen description in parentheses (e.g., (H1N1). “One influenza A (H1N1), A (H3N2), and one or two influenza B viruses (depending on the vaccine) are included in each year's influenza vaccines.” SOURCES Used for Audio Antonia E.

The Lexus LS 500 sits atop the Lexus sedan lineup with all of the luxurious appointments you'd expect from a full-size luxury sedan. While you might expect the Lexus LS 500 to carry the 5.0-liter V8 under its hood, as its name would suggest, the Lexus LS 500 bucks the alphanumeric naming convention in the spirit of fuel efficiency and silence. Instead of the snarling V8, this Lexus shuffles along the highway with a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6. Despite the powertrain differences, the rest of the Lexus LS 500 walks in step with the Lexus flagship coupe, the LC 500. The interior features are similar to both models, namely sharing styling, door handles and other accessories. Of course, rear-seat passengers in the LS 500 have plenty of comfortable space to sit back and relax during any trip. On this episode of Quick Spin , host Wesley Wren puts the 2021 Lexus LS 500 through its paces and brings you along for the ride. Wren walks you around the flagship Lexus and shows off its features before hopping behind the wheel and taking you along for a live drive review. Between those segments, Wren talks with Patrick Carone and elaborates on his thoughts on this Lexus sedan. The pair talk about the changing consumer trends around full-size sedans and the transition away from cars towards crossovers. They close the show by explaining why this Lexus LS 500 is special.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-1-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 4, 2021.  This week, we pause our series of episodes on water connections to the human body, to revisit an episode from fall 2017 that explores one of the hallmarks of the autumn season. MUSIC – ~ 11 sec – instrumental.Following the astronomical start of fall on September 22, this episode features a fiddle tune named for a water-related weather event that will mark a meteorological fall turning point when it occurs across the Commonwealth in October or November.  Have a listen to the music for about 25 more seconds. MUSIC - ~26 sec – instrumental. You've been listening to part of “Cold Frosty Morn',” performed here by the western Virginia band New Standard.  One of the consequences of fall's arrival is frost in the mornings and, eventually, a significant enough freeze to end of the growing season, when temperatures fall to about 28 degrees Fahrenheit or below.  That temperature typically occurs for the first time each fall in mid-to-late October in western Virginia, early-to-mid November east of the Blue Ridge, and mid-to-late November in some Virginia coastal areas.  Those predicted periods are based on historical records through 2010; the typical frost and freeze dates may be shifting as Virginia experiences climate change.Generally, frost forms when water vapor in the air contacts plants, windows, cars, or other solid surfaces that are at or below water's freezing point of 32 degrees Fahrenheit.  Some specific kinds of frost include radiationfrost, occurring when surface objects are cooled by radiating their heat; advection frost, occurring when surfaces are cooled by winds; and rime, a dense type of frost that forms when super-cooled liquid water in fog or clouds contacts solid surfaces, such as trees, radio towers, or ships on winter seas. Frost may seem far away on Virginia's often mild, early October days.   But to paraphrase a comment about truth from the poem “Birches,” by RobertFrost, frost-producing weather will soon break in with all of its matter-of-fact. Thanks to New Standard for permission to use this week's music, and we close with about 10 more seconds of “Cold Frosty Morn'.” MUSIC - ~12 sec – instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Ben Cosgrove for his version of “Shenandoah” to open and close the show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.
