Zibby interviews debut author Amanda Peters about her award-winning novel, THE BERRY PICKERS. The story, influenced by Peters' Mi'kmaq heritage, revolves around a family from Nova Scotia who travels to Maine each summer for blueberry picking and the four-year-old daughter who goes missing from the fields. The novel, which took four years to complete, was part of her Peters' MFA program. Now an associate professor, she emphasizes the importance of perseverance and feedback in writing.

Natural wine – wine produced with minimal chemical intervention – is growing increasingly popular in the United States. But critics say the lack of defined standards and certification means consumers don't quite know what they're getting when they uncork a bottle. It's harvest time in California. Pickers are plucking grapes from the vines as quickly as they can. This vineyard is certified organic. Growers here say consumers want wines that reflect their lifestyle choices. “The farm-to-table movement in the United States really made people concerned about what they're eating and what they're putting into their bodies. And I think for a really long time, we were a little bit more focused on the food that we're eating and the food that we're purchasing and consuming. And I think now it's also grown to encompass the wine that we're drinking as well,” says David Rothchild, owner of Los Paisanos Vineyard Management Company. These grapes will not just end up in organic wines, the vineyard supplies several natural wine producers. Natural wine is a production philosophy that favors as little intervention as possible, typically fermented with no added water, yeast or flavor enhancers. Rothchild thinks it's a good market to get into, at a time when overall wine consumption is falling. “There aren't as many wine drinkers right now and the wine-drinking population is aging and they're not attracting a younger audience,” he says. “I think that the younger audience is very attracted by natural wine. I think that it's a different flavor. There has been a movement towards lower alcohol, higher acid wines, wines that are more refreshing.” Total Wine, which operates 257 stores in 28 U.S. states, says sales of natural wine have more than tripled from a year ago. “The natural wine movement is great for the consumer because it is providing an alternative to the mass-produced wine that may have a lot of chemicals in it or have vineyards that are farmed with pesticides or chemicals that have proven to be very bad for you,” says winemaker Pax Mahle. Analysts say natural wine is currently the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. wine industry. This article was provided by The Associated Press.

“Lived Through That” is the companion podcast to my book where I look at influential musicians of the 80s and 90s and where they are today. On this podcast, we'll delve deeper into a single pivotal moment in the lives of some of the artists I feature in that book, as well as other artists I love and admire. The stories they tell are open, honest, and inspiring. I am very excited to have Bertis Downs on the show this week. As a HUGE fan of the band REM, I've known about him for years. He's R.E.M.'s manager, lawyer, or as he says, "the fifth Beatle of REM"! Today, he tells us that without Ronald Reagan, he likely wouldn't be where he's at today. It's probably not what you think! Musical credits: "Pickers" by Blue Dot Sessions Bertis Downs' website Be sure to look out for my books, "Lived Through That" and "80s Redux" where ever you buy your books!

Vehicles pulled off on the side of the Trans Canada with white buckets on their hoods are sure signs that blueberry picking season has arrived. If you're looking to buy blueberries, you can be sure to get some there. Some of you, of course, pick your own. But, this year, many people say that the blueberries were scarce, even in your favorite spots. We thought we'd "pick" an expert to tell us what might be going on. David Percival is director of the Wild Blueberry Research Program and manager of the Wild Blueberry Research Centre at Dalhousie University.

This year the warm and still weather has led to a surge in flea beetles, which can destroy oil seed rape, while it's still in the early stages of growth in the fields. Farmers used to rely on neonicotinoid chemicals to protect the plants and kill flea beetle larvae, but they have been banned. We speak to a farmer who's been spraying his crop at night to try and tackle the pest, but now he's having to re-sow much of his crop, some of it by drone. This year's sugar beet harvest, known as a 'campaign', has just started. The harvest last year was poor and the cost of processing sugar-beet rose dramatically. Farmers and businesses which want to use British sugar in their products are hoping for a better season this year. Picking apples has always been labour-intensive, but things are changing with the development of new machinery to aid - or even replace - pickers. One such machine is called the REVO and it's being used this year by a major grower in Kent. Adrian Scripps has 250 hectares and produces up to 200 million apples a year from its orchards near Tonbridge, it's invested in a fleet of harvesting platforms.

We tend to have difficulty accepting God's love for us and forgiveness for our sins when the devil reminds us repeatedly of whom we once were. When we come to terms with Christ's sacrifice for us being fully sufficient to cover our sins, we are then held to a standard of showing the same forgiveness and mercy to others.

We tend to have a hard time accepting God's love -- and His forgiveness for our sins -- when the devil continues to remind us of who we once were. When we come to terms with Christ's sacrifice for us, and recognize that His work on the cross was fully sufficient to cover our sins, we're then held to a higher standard. We have the responsibility and the privilege to extend the same forgiveness and mercy to other people that was first given to us.

The picking function is all about KPIs. The larger the facility, the more fine-tuned your picking process needs to be. More errors during picking mean inferior customer experience and slower operations. Picking proceses might also vary based on the product type and industry. The manufacturing may have different picking processes from retail or distribution. So which are the KPIs most relevant for picking operations and pickers?In today's episode, we invited a panel of cross-functional experts for a live interview on LinkedIn who brings significant expertise to discuss the Top KPIs for Pickers. We discussed nuances of the picking function, including the performance incentives, issues due to warehouse integration, and picking efficiencies gained by modern picking strategies. We also discussed the pros and cons of real time vs batch connection and how that might impact picking KPIs and efficiencies, as well as how politics and biases may influence the architecture, leading to issues and variances in the warehouse function.For more information on growth strategies for SMBs using ERP and digital transformation, visit our community at wbs.rocks or elevatiq.com.
