Tragically, chemical abortions now represent 50 percent of all abortions performed in the U.S. On today's edition of Family Talk, Dr. William Lile, a Christian obstetrician and gynecologist, documents 2,500 successful abortion pill reversals through AbortionPillReversal.com. Each baby saved is a precious victory against the abortion industry. Dr. Lile explains that those who support abortion are clearly going against God's design. Not surprisingly, they're attacking the babies created in the very image of God.

The August Complex Fire burned more than one million acres across three national forests and destroyed hundreds of structures. But devastating fires are not limited to California. Across the West, more than 10 million acres burned in 2020—a record in modern history. These fires consumed more than 17,500 structures and more than $3.5 billion in firefighting costs. Tragically, dozens of lives were lost, and many more people were displaced by evacuation orders. Fires released smoke that degraded air quality nearby and hundreds of miles away. They also destroyed wildlife habitat, including for imperiled species, and the fires' aftereffects will soon lead to erosion that harms water quality in local watersheds.  Unfortunately, large and destructive wildfires are becoming more common across the West, with new records set almost every year. Although several factors contribute to this trend, a significant one is the declining health of the nation's forests. The U.S. Forest Service, which manages 193 million acres of land, reports a backlog of 80 million acres in need of restoration and 63 million acres facing high or very high risk of wildfire.  Given the toll on neighboring communities, public health, and the environment, today's extreme wildfire risks could readily be described as a nuisance. Yet the owner of the land posing this risk—the federal government—has not responded to these nuisance conditions the way any other landowner would be required to. From 2009 to 2018, the Forest Service implemented forest restoration projects to reduce fire risks and improve forest health on less than 4 million acres per year, including fuel reduction projects on only  . . .

How Cain Failed to Learn

Today in the Word Devotional

It may not surprise you that Americans are rapidly exiting the Christian faith. For every individual who becomes a believer, four leave the church. One source claims that over the next 30 years, one million people per year will choose not to be affiliated with any kind of Christianity. Many are young people raised in Christian families who will “deconvert” later in life. Cain’s “deconversion” in today’s reading is tragically similar. Cain knew the Lord. He knew he should worship God. When his initial offering was rejected, God Himself alerted Cain about the consequences of his next decision. He needed to learn from his failure and accept God’s second chance rather than “doubling down” on sin. Unfortunately, Cain didn’t heed God’s admonition. God’s warning is an incredible example of His mercy (vv. 6–7). If Cain confessed and repented of what he’d done wrong with his first offering (we don’t know exactly what that was), and did “what is right,” God would accept it just as He had accepted Abel’s offering. But the sin of anger was “crouching” at the door. If only Cain could resist temptation and accept God’s loving rebuke, his close relationship with the Lord could continue. Tragically, Cain failed to learn his lesson. Instead, his anger remained hot and he committed premeditated murder. Even worse, when God questioned him, he responded, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” (v. 9). This completed his failure to value life as God does and to love as God loves. Despite Cain’s lack of repentance, God mitigated his just punishment with a merciful mark that would preserve his life (v. 15). Cain chose self over God when he made his choices. His anger helped blind him to his perilous spiritual situation, and he rejected the truth in God’s rebuke. >> Cain didn’t learn his lesson, but we can! What sins are “crouching at your door,” trying to gain mastery over you? Make the wise choice, call for the Lord’s help, and win the battle!

Miguel welcomed Dr. Jennifer L. Rudolph to the podcast to discuss Baseball as Mediated Latinidad, including racist Latino Threat Narratives in baseball that are a microcosm of US white supremacy society. Dr. Rudolph is an Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies at Connecticut College and author of Baseball as Mediated Latinidad: Race, Masculinity, Nationalism, and performance of Identity. Dr. Rudolph's research interests include U.S. Latino expressive cultures, Latino identity formation, transnationalism, urban studies, and teaching Spanish to heritage/native speakers.First, Miguel asked Dr. Rudolph why it was essential for her to analyze new forms of media, such as social media, for her book, Baseball as Mediated Latinidad? Second, Miguel also asked Jennifer about her opening chapter, "La crema de Sammy Sosa," and her analysis of legendary Dominican and former Chicago Cubs star Sammy Sosa. Specifically, Miguel asked Jennifer to explain how specific events tied to Sosa's career and post-career intersected with race, class, and gender issues.Next, Miguel and Dr. Rudolph discussed the controversy regarding Marc Anthony singing the national anthem at the 2013 all-star game and how it was another example of Anthropologist Leo Chavez's Latino Threat Narrative. Miguel and Dr. Rudolph also discuss how the World Baseball Classic and the 2017 Puerto Rico National team connect to nationalism, race, assimilation, and masculinity. For example, Dr. Rudolph discussed how her analysis of the Puerto Rican national team showed the contradictions between Latinos perceived as threats by white fans instead of representing nationalistic pride to Puerto Rican fans.Furthermore, Miguel asked Jennifer about the connections between baseball, language, and racialized capitalism. Lastly, Miguel asked Jennifer about her chapter on Major League Baseball's development, labor structure, and practices at their academias in the Dominican Republic and Venezuela. Dr. Rudolph summarized the system and explained how they resemble the history of US imperialism and colonialism in Latin America. To end the podcast, Miguel gives you his Molotov MVP for episode 30, the legendary Pittsburgh Pirate and Hall of Famer, Roberto Clemente. Tragically, Roberto Clemente passed away in a plane crash 49 years ago today, on New Years' Eve 1972, while providing humanitarian aid to Nicaragua to ensure that the US-backed Somoza right-wing government would not steal the post-earthquake aid.

Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

The Gemara tells us if a person is experiencing troubles, he should look into his deeds and improve his ways. Our deeds determine the way Hashem governs our lives. Sometimes people do improve themselves, but things don't seem to change in their lives. One explanation for this is that Hashem is storing up their deeds to give them even more blessing at a later time. The midrash tells us we can learn one of the ways in which Hashem deals with us from a story with Rabbi Pinchas ben Yair. One time, people were visiting from out of town and they left their barley kernels with the Rabbi for safekeeping while they attended to their affairs. But when they left the city, they forgot to go back and pick up the barley. The Rabbi planted the barley for them and then used that crop to plant for them the following year and so on. When these people eventually came back seven years later to pick up the barley, the Rabbi presented them with storehouses filled with barley. Says the midrash, so too it is by Hashem. We do good deeds and Hashem is זורע צדקות – He plants those good deeds in order to give us an even bigger return at a later time. The Ohr Hachaim writes, sometimes when Hashem wants to give a person an immediate blessing, He'll present that person with a mitzvah opportunity whose side benefit is the blessing that Hashem wants to bestow upon him. Everything revolves around our deeds. Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Freidman, author of the popular gilyon Noam Siach, related the following personal story. A couple of months ago, the Rabbi received a phone call from a shadchan who suggested a shidduch for his son. It sounded like an excellent shidduch and he was hoping the other side would feel that same way. Right after that phone call, he went to shul and while he was there, a man from Israel came over to talk to him, asking the Rabbi for chizuk . This man said he had a daughter, a young widow aged 23, with her own 2 year old daughter. The Rabbi gave him chizuk and then 5 minutes later, he suddenly remembered there's a very chashuv young Rabbinical scholar with sterling middot who lives in Bnei Brak. Tragically, his wife passed away a few months before and left him with a 6 year old daughter to raise. The Rabbi thought perhaps this could be a match. He went back to that man and gave him the information about the boy. He then called the young Rabbi in Bnei Brak and gave him the information about the girl. Over the next week, there was a lot of back and forth regarding his son's shidduch , as well as the shidduch that he suggested. About a week after that, he received a phone call from the widow's father saying they were interested in proceeding, but first he wanted to meet the boy. Happened to be that boy was coming in from Israel for a different reason on the upcoming Sunday. And indeed, the father met him and the decision was made to proceed with the shidduch . On that very same day, Rabbi Friedman received a call from the shadchan saying the other side was agreeable to move forward with his son. From that point on, both shidduchim progressed together, hand in hand. The widow and widower ended up getting engaged on a Wednesday night and the very next night, Rabbi Friedman's son got engaged as well. The Rabbi saw so clearly how Hashem gave him the opportunity to make a shidduch at the very same time he was hoping to find a shidduch for his son. It was a tremendous zechut for him to bring such a couple together, finding a mother for a 6 year old girl and a father for a two year old girl. From Lakewood, New Jersey, the Rabbi was able to make a shidduch between two people who lived in Israel. It was all siyata d'Shamaya . And, the Rabbi was so appreciative that it gave him the zechut that his son's shidduch should go easily and smoothly. Our deeds determine everything. Sometimes Hashem uses them immediately and sometimes He plants them for later use. Either way, it is always the best for us. As far as we are concerned, we should value every opportunity we have to perform a mitzvah.

Lauren now "great with child," as they say, Christmas feels a bit different in our household this year. Few of our countrymen are having children these days. And very few indeed are having more than two if they can help it. My wife and I thereby find ourselves receiving the gift of commentary from time to time. Much of the feedback from broader society is congratulatory, albeit puzzled and bewildered. But population growth in America last year was the lowest it's ever been in this country's history - a mere 0.1% due in part to a perfect storm of conditions and attitudes which have persuaded most people that now is not a good time to increase their family size. Psalm 127 rings in our ears all the same. "Behold, children are a heritage from Yahweh, the fruit of the womb a reward." All the while, it would seem the mainstream folks are more in the mindset described in Isaiah 3. "My people—infants are their oppressors..." All the more, Christmas is wonderful for the fact that the fulfillment of the promise of God to redeem His people was the birth of the Messiah to the virgin Mary. This innocent babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and laid in a manger would save his people, lifting the curse of sin and death. King Herod saw the child as a threat, sending soldiers to Bethlehem to find and kill him. But not taking any chances, Herod ordered his lackeys to murder every baby boy under the age of two. Tragically, far too many Americans have more the mindset of Herod than of Joseph in this regard. Yet we should admire Joseph and Mary all the more. Rather than bemoaning that this was hardly the best time, or that they weren't in the best position to have and raise a child right now, Joseph and Mary saw the greatest fulfillment of their God-given potential as humble obedience to the perfect and holy will of the Most High. Though their country was under foreign occupation, the wicked king of Judea would hunt them, and people might talk, they would diligently care for this baby boy entrusted to them, even though it meant fleeing to Egypt until the threat had passed. All the more we should see in God warning Joseph in a dream a comforting truth about the Lord that the unchangeable character of his purpose will not be thwarted, whatever cruelty and malice would try against those who belong to God. We are in the position of the shepherds here, to whom the angel appeared as they were keeping watch over their flock by night. As Luke 2:10-14 records, "...The angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”" --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/support

Sicelo Mbatha grew up in the remote South African region of Kwahlabisa, on the doorstep of a game reserve. Every day, he and his friends - including his best friend Sanele - would walk many miles to get to school and back. One day, on their way home, they approached their final river crossing and children started screaming - there was a crocodile. Tragically, Sicelo witnessed a brutal attack on Sanele that day. The experience traumatised him for years. But rather than turning away from nature, and being fearful of wildlife, he was drawn to it. He wanted to understand the behaviour of wild animals, so pursued his dream to become a wilderness guide. It was by being close to the often brutal world of animals that he would finally come to terms with what had happened, and find peace after grief.

On this episode of March Forth with Mike Bauman, Mike chats with Keith "Majick" Woggon. Tragically, Keith passed away from his battle with cancer on December 3rd, 2021 in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He was born in Toledo, Ohio on October 10, 1958 and led an interesting life where music was always around. Growing up with a musical father, Keith eventually picked up the guitar and started playing. Keith's dad also helped spark his interest in film and television. After graduating from Whitmer High School in Toledo, Keith spent some time out in Montana, where he was studying Film & Television at Montana State. Over the years, Keith would apply his loves for music in film in other avenues of his life. He spent 20 years as a music photographer, having shot live photos of the likes of Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Joe Walsh, among others. Additionally, he helped set up the sound on stage for numerous musician friends of his over the years. In this episode, Keith talks with Mike about how Keith's dad helped spark his interest in music and film, his time in Montana, eventually making his way to Memphis and getting into the local music scene there, his time and friends in Hot Springs, and more. Note from Mike: Prior to his passing, Keith mentioned the following artists to me, and I encourage you to check out their music: Billy Strings, Valerie June, Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings, and Crash Meadows. The book that Keith is mentioned in is called Follow The Money: A Month in the Life of a Ten-Dollar Bill by Steve Boggan.

Contrary to the claims of the modern Left, human nature is not infinitely malleable and we are not moving toward a progressive utopia. Man is fundamentally flawed and fallen and therefore as prone to despotism today as in any previous chapter of human history. But don't worry. This leaves us a sliver of hope. For those with ears to hear, we can learn from the lessons of history to ensure we stop its repetition. Tragically, some of the most brutal aspects of history are repeated today in the abortion industry and their crimes against unborn children. As we open the pages of history together, we will let Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer provide eternal insights to guide us toward the final abolition of abortion. Don't miss Seth's powerful new talk from the South Dakota Right to Life 50th anniversary convention.

Note: This episode and the episode's shownotes utilize the term “women,” when talking about the Turnaway study results, because women made up all of the participants. Many people, including trans men and non-binary individuals, still require access to safe and timely abortion care.On December 1st, 2021, the Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments to Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization—a 15-week abortion ban out of Mississippi, which will put the ability to access abortion care out of reach for so many. Dr. Diana Greene Foster, researcher at the University of California, San Francisco and author of the Turnaway Study: Ten Years, A Thousand Women, and the Consequences of Having- or Being Denied- an Abortion, talks to us about her book on the study, the science and stories behind it, and why the upcoming Supreme Court case is a direct affront to reproductive health.The Turnaway Study began in 2007 as a way to answer whether or not abortion hurts women—an idea that has impacted policy for decades and has even underlined the Supreme Court's decision to ban one type of abortion. The study followed a diverse set of participants from 30 U.S. facilities, comparing the outcomes of those who received abortions as compared to those who wanted them but couldn't get them. For five years, participants were interviewed on their physical health, mental health, socioeconomic wellbeing, and life outcomes. The study quickly found the opposite to be true; limiting access to abortion led to women experiencing significant risks to their physical health, financial health, and life outcomes. Medical literature has made clear that carrying a pregnancy to term is associated with much greater health risk than having an abortion, which was confirmed by the study. Tragically, two study participants died as a result of not being able to access an abortion, while many reported higher rates of chronic pain, hypertension, and short-term mental health concerns. Additionally, women denied abortion care were much more likely to end up living below the federal poverty level, more likely to receive public assistance, more likely to be in situations of domestic violence, and less likely to set and achieve aspirational plans. People who received their wanted abortion had a higher rate of later intended pregnancies—increasing the likelihood that, down the line, participants had wanted and healthier pregnancies with better partners, more support, and when they were ready. Finally, the children of mothers who received an abortion experienced better outcomes as well, with less likelihood of living in poverty, and increased likelihood of achieving developmental milestones.  LinksThe Turnaway Study: Ten Years, A Thousand Women, and the Consequences of Having- or Being Denied- and AbortionDiana Greene Foster on TwitterDr. Diana Greene Foster's New York Times piece, What Happens When It's Too Late of Get an Abortion Support the show (https://www.reprosfightback.com/take-action#donate)

This week on Hashtag History, we are discussing Selena Quintanilla Perez, an American singer, businesswoman, and fashion designer that would be credited as one of the most influential Latin artists of all time at a time when the Tejano music industry was largely dominated by male artists. She would break through this glass ceiling and become by far one of the most well-known Mexican-American entertainers to ever exist. Tragically, on March 31, 1995, when Selena was only twenty-three years old, she would be shot and murdered by a friend of hers' that had managed her fan club. Following her tragic death, her English crossover record, titled Dreaming of You, would reach the top of the Billboard 200, the first Latin artist to ever do so. Since then, nearly 18 million Selena records have been sold and several movies and shows have been made to document Selena's life, namely the 1997 film that starred Jennifer Lopez as Selena Quintanilla that would propel Lopez, also a Latin American artist, into the spotlight in a major way.

We live in an era of outrage. Constant controversies and left versus right dominate our culture. Tragically, the church mirrors this state of affairs in many ways. The key ingredient we're missing in all of this is grace. We've fallen from grace, dividing over issues and failing to come together and be the people God has called us to be.

Matthew 9.12 NLT Jesus said, ”For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” Jesus' ministry was a continual shock for the Pharisees. They were anxious to obey the Jewish law to the letter and this governed the whole of their lives. Tragically, many of them missed the whole point as they did so. They thought that they were right with God because of the way in which they stuck to the rules. They went to enormous lengths to ensure that they didn't become unclean and were particularly careful to keep well away from unsavoury people. So when the Pharisees saw Jesus spending time with well known sinners they were apoplectic with shock. They saw this as definitive proof that Jesus couldn't possibly have been sent by God. Jesus responded to the Pharisees by pointing out that people who were well didn't need to go to a doctor, only those who were ill. His point was clear. If they were spiritually perfect then they wouldn't need healing, but because they were sinners, just like everyone else, they certainly did need a spiritual doctor. The apostle Paul declared “for everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard.” (Romans 3.23) The Bible doesn't distinguish between different kinds of sinners because the fact that matters is that we are all in the same boat. We have all sinned. A favourite pastime is to look at other people and convince oneself that one isn't nearly as bad as they are. Listening to the news can easily induce a “tut tut” mentality which suggests that the sins that are graphically reported are far more serious than anything you or I would do. And that may be true. But the fact is that the perpetrators of those sins and you and I are in exactly the same position before God. We have fallen short of his standards, and so we all need his forgiveness. Only Jesus can give us the healing that we need, and that's precisely what he did by dying on the Cross for our sins. By taking the weight of our sin upon himself he is able to offer to us a restored relationship with God. QUESTION: How would you respond if someone told you that they didn't need to be healed spiritually? PRAYER: Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I need your forgiveness. Thank you that you are so ready to set me free. Amen

Across the West, more than 10 million acres burned in 2020—a record in modern history. These fires consumed more than 17,500 structures and more than $3.5 billion in firefighting costs. Tragically, dozens of lives were lost, and many more people were displaced by evacuation orders. Fires released smoke that degraded air quality nearby and hundreds of miles away. They also destroyed wildlife habitat, including for imperiled species, and the fires' aftereffects will soon lead to erosion that harms water quality in local watersheds.

When Paul and Silas came to Philippi in Acts 16, a woman who was demon possessed began to pester Paul. Paul commanded the demon to come out of the woman and she was set free from spiritual bondage. But Paul and Silas then got into trouble, because setting this woman free came with economic consequences: she had been enslaved by owners who exploited her demonic abilities for profit. Now their slave was worthless to them. Tragically, this story highlights one of the worst evils known to humanity—the enslavement of others for economic gain. Many Christians in Western nations like Australia see slavery as a thing of the past or something unrelated to everyday life. But is this true? What comforts might we enjoy at the expense of others? What slavery might be taking place even in our own land? In this episode, we consider what modern slavery looks like and how we might take action against it.

William Young was born in Germany, and he immigrated to the United States when he was just a little boy at the age of two. His family settled in Philadelphia and eventually became neighbors to one of America's first botanists, John Bartram. Growing up, William spent a great deal of his childhood exploring Bartram's gardens. Bertram even encouraged him to pursue botany, and he took him along on some collecting trips. By all accounts, William was a smart and self-directed young man. When he was in his early twenties, he decided that he wanted to get the attention of the brand new Queen of England, Queen Charlotte. Charlotte was the bride of George III, and William put together a little parcel for her - a little gift of seeds - along with a letter (no doubt congratulating her on her wedding and introducing himself as an American botanist.) Charmed by William's thoughtful gift, Charlotte decided to summon William to England. She wanted him to come to England to study botany for a year and then return to America to collect plants on behalf of the royal family. And so that's exactly what William Young ended up doing. When he left America, he had no formal training in botany. He was, however, full of potential and eager to learn. This opportunity in England was an extraordinary chance for William to learn the science of botany from the worldwide center for botanical research: England. At the same time, this series of events caused a bit of jealousy and a shock in the American botanical community. John Bartram himself was an old man by the time this happened for William, and he made comments along the lines of, "Hey, I've been in America, collecting and cultivating for decades, and I've never received an offer like this." And so many of the American botanists really couldn't believe William's good fortune. His trip was essentially like winning a botanist lottery with the promise not only of training but steady work and support from a generous, well-funded patron. Despite Charlotte's hopes for William, his peers were dubious of William's ability to measure up to the task. While William was passionate about botany, he hadn't demonstrated any particular acumen or success that should have garnered the kind of opportunity that had come his way. The bottom line was, they didn't think William had it in him. Yet, William's critics were not entirely fair. After all, William had been bold enough to send that package of seeds to the new Queen. And he was smart enough to leverage his German heritage when he wrote to her. Charlotte had German heritage as well, and when she first came to England, she surrounded herself with other Germans who spoke her language and shared her history, customs, and culture. Summoning William to England was just another example of Queen Charlotte making herself feel more at home away from home. When William arrived in England, he was in his early twenties. He had a huge learning curve to conquer when it came to his new station in life. He had no idea what it was like to be in front of royalty or how to behave in Royal circles. Of course, William didn't have a ton of life experience as a young person in his twenties. So, he performed exactly as one might imagine he would: dazzled by the luxury and lifestyle, he quickly began racking up bills. With each passing month, he found himself deeper in debt until he ended up arrested and in jail for the large debts that he owed. Incredibly, it was the Queen who bailed him out - but not before sending him home to Philadelphia with the hopes that he could still perform as a plant collector in America. And so it was on this day. November 3 in 1766, that William returned to America with his new title as botanist to the King and Queen. Instead of being humbled by his financial misdeeds, William returned proud and haughty. He strutted about under the auspices of his Royal appointment, but his behavior didn't endear him to his American peers. They heard the rumors about how William had acted when he was in England and they were turned off by his peacocking and attire. In a letter to the botanist Peter Collinson, John Bartram wrote, “I am surprised that Young is come back so soon. He cuts the greatest figure in town and struts along the streets whistling, with his sword and gold lace.” And then Bartram confided that William had visited his garden three times, feigning respect and bragging about his yearly pay from the Royal family, which amounted to 300 pounds sterling. Now William was no fool, and it's clear that he craved acceptance from his peers. At the same time, he was probably aware of how some of his peers truly felt about him. But he did not dwell on this conundrum and focused on his work. He still had collecting to do for the King and Queen, and he needed to mend fences on that front if he ever hoped to make it as a botanist. And so, he set off for the Carolinas, where he spent an entire year collecting plants. Then, he carefully and quite expertly packaged up all of the plants that he had found and traveled back to London - personally bringing all of these plants to the King and Queen and hoping to get back in their good graces. Although William arrived in England only to be refused to be seen by the King and Queen, he still managed to make his trip a resounding success. By shepherding rare, live plants in wonderful condition from the Carolinas to England, he impressed English collectors. And there was one plant in particular that really helped to repair and save William's reputation, and that was the Venus Fly Trap. William brought many live specimens of the Venus flytrap to England, and as one might imagine, the plant caused a sensation. Without the flytrap, there was probably little that William could say to restore his reputation. So in this sense, his plants, especially the Venus flytrap, did the mending and the PR work for him. What William did was essentially no different than an apologetic spouse who brings their partner flowers after a fight. That's exactly what William did on this trip when he returned and presented the Venus flytrap to England. One other fact about this trip is that William proved himself to be an expert plant packer. Clearly, one of the biggest challenges for early botanists was keeping specimens alive - that was really hard to do. Dead specimens didn't garner anywhere near the attention or pay of living plants. William's skill in this area underscores just how intelligent and thoughtful William could be. A 1771 letter to Humphrey Marshall detailed William's packing technic: William Young sends his plants very safely by wrapping them in moss and packing them pretty close [together] in a box. He ties the moss in a ball around the roots with a piece of packthread...It's very surprising how well they keep in this manner.  William's method differs little from the way plants are packaged and sent by mail today. William ends up devoting his life to botany. He returned to American and collected plants in the Carolinas, returning to England when he had a full shipment. William mastered his collecting strategy over his lifetime - returning again and again to the Carolinas, scouring the wilderness for rare plants like the Venus flytrap that had brought him so much success. Along the way, William continued to struggle financially as he paid his debts. But by the end of his life, William was able to get his affairs in order, and he actually died a fairly wealthy man. Tragically, he died young at the age of 43. In December of 1784, William decided to set out once again for the Carolinas. Unbeknownst to him, he was going on what would become his final collecting trip. He never did reach the Carolinas. He only made it as far as Maryland, where he collected along a waterway known as Gunpowder Falls, where he fell into the river and died after being swept away by the current. His body was found about seven weeks later.   November 3, 1794 Birth of William Cullen Bryant, American poet.   William drew inspiration from the natural world. He once wrote a lovely verse about roses: Loveliest of lovely things are they, On earth, that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour Is prized beyond the sculptured flower. William also wrote about the month of November in a little poem called A Winter Piece.  ...When shriek'd The bleak November winds, and smote the woods, And the brown fields were herbless, and the shades, That met above the merry rivulet, Were spoil'd, I sought, I loved them still,—they seem'd Like old companions in adversity.   November 3, 1841 Birth of Eugenius Warming, Danish botanist. Eugenius was one of the founders of modern plant ecology. He's credited with writing the first ecology textbook with his book, Oecology of Plants: An Introduction to the Study of Plant Communities (1895).   Unearthed Words She went to the window. A fine sheen of sugary frost covered everything in sight, and white smoke rose from chimneys in the valley below the resort town. The window opened to a rush of sharp early November air that would have the town in a flurry of activity, anticipating the tourists the colder weather always brought to the high mountains of North Carolina. She stuck her head out and took a deep breath. If she could eat the cold air, she would. She thought cold snaps were like cookies, like gingersnaps. In her mind, they were made with white chocolate chunks and had a cool, brittle vanilla frosting. They melted like snow in her mouth, turning creamy and warm. ― Sarah Addison Allen, The Sugar Queen   Grow That Garden Library Genealogy for Gardeners by Simon Maughan  and Dr Ross Bayton This book came out in 2017, and the subtitle is Plant Families Explored & Explained. Anything that has genealogy and gardening in the title is a book that I'm interested in. Before I get into this particular review, I should mention that this book is part of one of my favorite garden series by the RHS. So in this series is the book Latin for gardeners as well as botany for gardeners. And now this book Genealogy for Gardeners is designed to help you explore and understand plant families - and plant family trees, which to me is even more exciting. Now you may be wondering why. Well, I think the authors do a great job of explaining that in the preface to their book. They write, While most of us think of plants, that's belonging to one big happy family. The fact is they don't. There are hundreds of different plant families, which botanists have cleverly grouped together using what they know of family histories and genealogy and now, of course, DNA to bring some sense and order to more than a quarter of a million different plant species.  But why should this matter to you as a gardener, aside from just wanting to become more knowledgeable about plant families? Well, here's the explanation from the authors: Plant families are all around us. Whatever the time of year, go for a walk and look for wild or garden plants. You'll be surprised at how many plant families are represented within a small radius of your home. Even in your own garden, there will be a fantastic genealogy of plants.  Thanks largely to the efforts of plant collectors and horticulturists who brought the plants into cultivation from the four corners of the world.  When it comes to being a good gardener making connections is what it's all about. And if you are faced with a strongly acidic soil, and know that rhododendrons will grow, then you can broaden your planting ideas to include other plants in the same family, such as Heather. Mountain Laurel, leather leaf, blueberries, and others. If you are designing with plants, you may know that all plants and a particular family, and share certain features, which enables you to mix displays effectively and extend your range.  Now that is a very compelling reason to get to know your plant families. One of the things that I love about this particular series of books is that the illustrations are incredible. The editors have pulled images of botanical art that truly are the best example of some of these plants. The beauty of these books, including the cover, just is not rivaled. In fact, the minute I spot these books, they just have a look and a feel to them - I know immediately that it's part of this series from the RHS. These books are in my office on a special little bookshelf of books that I reference all the time, and this little series from the RHS is such a gem. This particular book about plant family, garden, genealogy - Basically the genealogy of plants-  is one that I go back to again and again, and again. So this is a fantastic book. As I mentioned, the illustrations are great. It is very clearly laid out. They've really done the heavy lifting when it comes to simplifying this material, making it very understandable and accessible. And yet, they do not dumb it down. That's not what this book is about. If you want a book on this topic that is exceptionally clear And is a delight to read, then this is the book that you've been waiting for. So, whether you're a landscape designer, a horticulture student, or just an amateur gardener, Genealogy for Gardeners will help you better understand and utilize plant families in your garden. This book is 224 pages of plant families and plant family trees - and it's part of one of the top garden book series on the market today. You can get a copy of Genealogy for Gardeners by Simon Maughan and Ross Bayton and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $20.   Today's Botanic Spark Reviving the little botanic spark in your heart November 3, 1903 On this day, The Cherokee Sentinel (Cherokee, Kansas) published this heartwarming blurb about the gardens in the Heartland of America. Here's what they wrote: It's November, and gardens and flowers are as green and beautiful as in summer. Verily, Kansas is an American Italy and the garden spot of the world.  Well, I don't know how true that was, and I question whether that was written for the benefit of enticing immigrants to come to Kansas. Nevertheless, I found it very sweet, and I thought it was a great way to end the show today.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener. And remember: "For a happy, healthy life, garden every day."
