A federal court ruling has implications for Southeast Alaska commercial salmon fishing. The ruling says federal fisheries officials neglected to consider dwindling orca populations when approving Chinook salmon harvests. At the same time, tribes in the Pacific Northwest are putting additional pressure on federal officials to come up with a sustainable plan for endangered salmon in the Snake River system. Wednesday on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce gets updates on trouble spots for salmon with Bob Chamberlin (Kwikwasut'inuxw Haxwa'mis), chair of the First Nation Wild Salmon Alliance and previous vice president of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs; Michael Orcutt (Hupa), fisheries department director for the Hoopa Valley Tribe; and Olivia Ebertz, KYUK news reporter.

Belonging is vital if our kids are to learn. They need to feel understood and safe, and that often starts with teachers. But teachers have a lot on their plates already, and new legislation has them fearful that they'll do or say something that might jeopardize their jobs. While this podcast episode doesn't solve this challenge, it spotlights the need for more conversations around creating spaces for youth who don't want to fit in a box that society created for them. Patti Hearn is a school and educational leader in the Pacific Northwest who started a school for girls and gender non-conforming kids so they would have the opportunity to “become competent risk takers and courageous mistake makers.” In this episode, we talk about why parents and leaders might want to build their own school, why it's so important that we listen to our youth, how to honor student rights, how the legal landscape is impacting our ability to serve all learners, and so much more. Patti has been there and done that and she's now using her knowledge to support other parents and educators in ensuring that more kids have access to the space and education they deserve. About Patti Hearn: Patti Hearn is passionate about education and believes in working to help individuals, families, and schools forge authentic paths. Patti was the Founding Head of Lake Washington Girls Middle School in Seattle, where, for over two decades, she offered girls and gender non-conforming kids the opportunity to become competent risk takers and courageous mistake makers. She then brought her knowledge and passion for innovative middle school programs to lead Seattle School for Boys, and she launched Verge Consulting to provide consultation and coaching to educators, school leaders, and founders of new schools, as well as school placement support for families. Patti shares her thinking and work in feminist, anti-racist, and LGBTQ+ inclusive education, social-emotional learning, startup culture in education, creative confidence, STEAM, executive functioning, and inclusive leadership. Her conference presentations include the National Association of Independent Schools, the International Coalition of Girls' Schools, the Seattle Interactive Conference, the Teaching and Education Summit, and the Northwest Association of Independent Schools. https://www.linkedin.com/in/patriciahearn/ https://twitter.com/patti_hearn Jump in the Conversation: [1:33] - Where Patti's school transformation began [2:55] - Helping students to become competent risk takers and courageous mistake makers [5:25] - Why you might want to build a startup school [7:17] - How to make a change [8:19] - Youth speaking up about gender noncoforming; we need to address that [9:40] - All kids have value; it's about loving the individual not about the labels [10:26] - how the legal landscape is impacting our ability to serve all learners fully [11:56] - All kids benefit from inclusion [12:45] - Teachers aren't clear enough about they can and can't say and they fear for their livelihoods [14:32] - It's life-saving to have a caring adult at school [18:27] - How to honor student rights and be an advocate [20:30] - Turbo Time [22:39] - What people need to know about serving LGTBQ+ kids [25:48] - Patti's Magic Wand [20:02] - Maureen's takeaways Links & Resources Verge Consulting Connect with Patti on LinkedIn Episode 120: How Legal Decisions Impact Our Schools with Karen Kalzer Unprotected: A Menoir by Billy Porter Every Kid Needs a Champion - TED Talk by Rita Pierson We Need to Talk About an Injustice - TED Talk by Bryan Stevenson Email Maureen Maureen's TEDx: Changing My Mind to Change Our Schools The Education Evolution Facebook: Follow Education Evolution Twitter: Follow Education Evolution LinkedIn: Follow Education Evolution EdActive Collective Maureen's book: Creating Micro-Schools for Colorful Mismatched Kids Micro-school feature on Good Morning America The Micro-School Coalition Facebook: The Micro-School Coalition LEADPrep
We touched on this topic a few times, most recently in Episode 69: Sex Demons. Now it's time to fully dive into this waking nightmare... you're welcome! Although a sleep paralysis event can be quite terrifying, and no one really knows WHY this happens, science can explain HOW this happens. So today Cassie will cram your brain with science facts and terms in hopes of dampening some of the very real fear in being stuck in a REM state, fully conscious, unable to move...
On today's episode I have the pleasure of speaking with history professor and author Aaron Goings. Aaron's latest work titled, The Port of Missing Men, is an in depth look into the life and legend surrounding Billy Gohl the charismatic, controversial and infamous labor organizer of the Sailors Union of the Pacific. After being convicted for the murder of a good friend, Billy was unjustly credited with the murder of dozens of port workers and was branded by the press as The Ghoul of Grays Harbor. Aaron's book looks into this bizarre slice of history and attempts to untangle the complicated story of big business, organized labor, citizen committees, and shady detective agencies in pursuit of the truth behind the multitude of dead bodies known as the “floater fleet” that clogged the frigid waterways of Gray's Harbor, Washington in the early 1900's.More than just a true-crime novel, The Port of Missing Men exposes the brutal treatment sailors and loggers suffered at the hands of lumber barons and ship owners in the early Pacific Northwest extraction economy and details the heated and sometimes violent clashes between pro-union and anti-union forces. Aaron's book exposes a class system of income inequality that persist even today and serves as a poignant reminder that the fight for fair pay, safer working conditions and basic workers' rights is far from over.The Show NotesThe Port of Missing Menhttps://uwapress.uw.edu/book/9780295747415/the-port-of-missing-men/Powell's Bookshttps://www.powells.com/Grit Nation Webpagehttps://www.gritnationpodcast.comWin Grit Nation Merchhttps://mailchi.mp/c28da31260b8/grit-nation-podcast-sign-up-pageEmail comments or suggestions to:email@example.comGrit Nation is a proud member of the Labor Radio / Podcast Networkhttps://www.laborradionetwork.org/ NW Carpenters Union United Brotherhood of Carpenters, Regional Council in the Pacific NW 6 states + 29k members strong!!Union Home Plus Union Home Plus helps union members save money when they buy, sell, or finance their home.

Wouldn't things be simpler if kids were fictional, and you could "write" their success over each challenge? In today's SASF, the guys discuss how a mom can help her children with their own "character" weaknesses. You get to hear another Nate airplane-story-turned-car story; Brian explains why camping is fun even though it sounds like it isn't; this episode also features two deer, a marten, and Yellowstone. But the real takeaways from this episode is 1) where to get the best breakfast burritos in the the Pacific Northwest; 2) stop trying to make life easy for your kids; and 3) be a killer side character in your kids' stories instead. #SASF #StoriesAreSoulFood #NDWilson #BrianKohl #parenting #storytelling #character #Yellowstone

Learn about growing upland rice just outside Seattle. Hear about the Agrarian Trust organization and their concept of land and resource sharing, and then Emily shares examples of successful cooperatives from around the world.

Emily enthusiastically talks about ideas to bring people together and support new farmers. Emily brings us into the concept of “putting the culture back in agriculture,” becoming connected to our food system, and why that $6 bag of salad mix is worth every bit of $6.

Nobody likes Mondays, it's a bit of a trope from Garfield to Office Space there's a wide array of example of social and artistic commentary about how much they suck. Today's story is about what appeared to be a simple, and for most people, nearly everyday occurrence of conflict in traffic. This encounter turned deadly for Herman Leslie Graham III in an instant. But this story isn't just about road rage, as tempting a thought as it might be. Once you hear the whole story it's pretty hard to argue that a force far more insidious wasn't at work somehow. We'd like to think that our society has progressed in amazing ways but the truth is that terrible things can still happen in broad daylight.Virginia Barreda Twitter - @vbarreda2Indie Drop-In Network featured our Pittock Mansion episode on Scary Time!

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters - broke down what they saw from a spirited Saturday practice at Husky Stadium, a Chamber of Commerce day where the coaches set the tone vocally and by the end the defense responded by making big plays. The guys on the defensive side included cornerback Jordan Perryman, DL Voi Tunuufi, LB Kris Moll and Daniel Heimuli, and EDGE players Bralen Trice, Zion Tupuola-Fetui, and Maurice Heims. In the first part of the pod, the guys break down the quarterback battle and where it stands. Is the job Michael Penix's to lose? Each quarterback - Penix, Dylan Morris, and Sam Huard - have had a day where they have been the one to shine. Day One it was Penix, followed by Huard, and then today it was Dylan Morris. The sophomore had a number of strong plays, including strikes to Ja'Lynn Polk, Devin Culp and Jack Westover that showed Morris has everything physically it takes to handle the job. But not one of the quarterbacks looked great during the final team period, the first one during fall camp with referees, chain gang, the whole thing. The defense shut them down every time. So is it a matter of Penix just maintaining a slender lead while all three continue to split reps? Or have Morris and Huard made gains on the former Indiana star? After a quick break, Grinolds and Fetters break down what they saw from the receivers, running backs, and tight ends. And then they provide their final thoughts on another day bathed in beautiful Pacific Northwest sunshine.

His company is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and education of the Earth's forests while enhancing awareness and knowledge of the natural world.

Recently launched at The Good Food Mercantile and The Portland Night Market, Portland, Oregon, in April, 2022, Pink Cloud Beverages is out to change the attitude on drinking and enjoying it. Without alcohol. Sierra Thomas is founder driving force behind this beverage product line that is much more than a delicious drink. Being very new as a company, Pink Cloud Beverages is currently targeting Portland's elite chefs, of which there is an impressive list, and selling at select small grocery stores in the Portland area and online from their website. As their website says, Pink Cloud is made with love in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon. Now for the story behind the impetus for Sierra to take on such a world-changing challenge. In 2010, she stopped drinking alcohol while working in the music and media industries, where it was “party time” pretty much all the time (Sierra compares it to the “Mad Men” series). There were challenges to being sober in that industry, as the non-alcoholic choices were few. But her wellness had taken a back seat from the fast pace of her career and it was time to put her health first. With all the entertaining she did as part of her job, it was hard to carve out a non-alcoholic beverage at a bar, restaurant or hotel at that time. She then got out, graduated from schools in Oahu, Hawaii, and was contacted by a friend who had grown up in the area. Her friend knew Sierra was having trouble sleeping and adjusting to her sobriety, and suggested she research the health benefits of CBD. The stigma of associating CBD with the intoxicant THC from the same hemp plant was in Sierra's mind, as she did not want to abort her recovery, But when she found that pure CBD had amazing natural healing powers and was not addictive, she became a convert. Then, driving back from a New Year's Eve party with husband and friends, the idea for the company was born. Sierra had been mixing CBD with other flavors to make mocktails, and her husband turned to her and said basically, “Why not make start a company with all these drinks you're inventing?”. After laughing, Sierra had the idea settle and then the fire to start a company consumed her. The name, Pink Cloud, is a term known by those in recovery. The first couple of months of sobriety bring a feeling of euphoria and clarity that is truly a rebirth. The euphoria of course gives way to the day-to-day of living at some point, but is always a memory of having come through the hard part of becoming sober. Sierra has added her own term to the process, “sober curious”, meaning, if you are addicted to alcohol but curious about being sober, then experiment. Try just one day being sober. If that works, try another, then another; you get the point. Sierra's market appears to be growing. Pink Cloud appeals to a growing group of non-drinkers who want to enjoy the social side of drinking without anxiety or the negative effects alcohol has on our mind and body. The goal is to create inclusion and normalize sober drinking as a movement so people can take pleasure in a refreshing adult beverage over a good meal, concert, just like they would with wine, seltzer, and cocktails. The company's mission is global, too. They are passionate about the beaches they love and have dedicated 1% of Gross Sales to go back to protect our oceans from the challenges threatening the vitality of the ecosystem.

A 10-year-old retail kiosk program aimed at providing opportunities for local small or ACDBE-certified retail business owners to test concepts at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is expanding, adding space for food and beverage operators to do the same. Those who pass through SEA's introductory program, which is largely financed by the airport, can move on to the program's intermediate level before each side decides whether to make a long-term commitment and investment. Two of the original participants – Seattle Chocolate and Planewear – have graduated to inline stores with full-length leases. “This gives us an opportunity to change up the menus, to be able to offer potentially some more ethnic cuisines that really represent all the various ethnicities and diversity of the Seattle area and the Pacific Northwest.”

A trained killer without a drop of human compassion shows up early in Laurie Buchanan's second Sean McPherson thriller (Iconoclast (Spark Press 2022)). She has no problem murdering a woman and taking her place at a writer's retreat in beautiful Washington State. But she's controlled by a Seattle-based crime family that is spreading its tentacles across the Bellingham Bay, a perfect location for trafficking drugs and people across the Pacific Ocean. The book opens with the murder of a priest, who turns out to be the brother of the retreat's proprietor, and a gourmet cook. The lovely Pine and Quill offers several cabins, one for each writer, and enticing-sounding gourmet meals. The iconoclast is there to kill someone who might know too much, and it takes some time before Sean McPherson, a former cop, is pulled in. Can he save his fiancé and protect the other guests? Laurie Buchanan, who earned a PhD in Holistic Health with a emphasis in energy medicine from National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, writes the Sean McPherson novels— fast-paced thrillers set in the Pacific Northwest that feature a trifecta of malice and the pursuit and cost of justice. A cross between Dr. Dolittle, Nanny McPhee, and a type-A Buddhist, Buchanan is an active listener, observer of details, payer of attention, reader and writer of books, kindness enthusiast, and red licorice aficionado. Her books have won multiple awards, including Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Gold Winner, International Book Award Gold Winner, National Indie Excellence Awards Winner, Crime Fiction/Suspense Eric Hoffer Awards Finalist, PenCraft Award for Literary Excellence, and CLUE Book Awards finalist Suspense/Thriller Mysteries. In addition to reading, her passions include long walks, bicycling, camping, and photography— because sometimes the best word choice is a picture. G.P. Gottlieb is the author of the Whipped and Sipped Mystery Series and a prolific baker of healthful breads and pastries. Please contact her through her website (GPGottlieb.com).

Last year's heat dome claimed nearly 100 lives in Oregon as temperature records shattered throughout the state and the Pacific Northwest. The deaths prompted Oregon lawmakers earlier this year to allocate $5 million to the Oregon Health Authority to purchase and distribute air conditioning units to at-risk, low-income Oregonians who get their healthcare through public plans like Medicare. But as the Salem Statesman Journal reports, at the start of last week's heat wave, only a third of the 3,000 units the Oregon Health Authority told lawmakers it would purchase had arrived. The agency was also unable to specify how many units were actually delivered directly to residents or through community-based organizations. Salem Statesman Journal reporter Claire Withycombe joins us to talk about the reasons for the delay.
