That tuna price is not representative on the actual price of tuna. The first tuna fish of the season is a status symbol in Japan and is always bid up as it is prestigious to acquire it. This is also true for fruit in Japan.

There is a man who passed away named Doc Thompson. You likely wont agree with his political point of view however that's not why I mention him. Doc was the absolute master of the in broadcast advert Segway. He would have you leaning into the radio waiting to see what he was talking about like he was describing an important news announcement or vital piece of information only for it to lead to a sponsorship advert. This kind of clean transition is very rare to hear now days and if you wanted to master it your self his old shows are a good way to do that.

climate change is not the fault of humanity, I call it "climate normalizing" considering that we are exiting an ice age, and the fact that it was warmer in the time of the early Roman empire than it is today confirms this

@99smite yes, you are right-there are truffle farms in N Carolina and Oregon. The huckleberry needs are way more complex, mysterious, yet understood here in Montana.

People argue that humans are horrible to the environment. But we are also BY FAR the best custodians of the planet ever. We are bringing back extinct species and preserving species that would have died out naturally (Panda bears, I'm looking at you.) There are amazing stories that people seem to gloss over when talking about the "horrors". The tree line in Africa for example. We aren't all good or bad, but there is a hell of a lot of good people seem to just ignore.

I wonder if genetically modifying these Foods would help the issue at hand. The only solution for the Truffle would be to plant more trees honestly. As for the tuna, unless you could set a few Acres of water strictly for them to breed, he doesn't look great for them. There is a solution for the Huckleberry though, cross breeding.

I wouldn't worry about chasing the premium product.. 99% of the time it's. Nothing more than very good marketing. Ie iPhone isn't premium x5 over Android.. They hired influencers gave them free phones. Meanwhile users sometimes discover their library &data is not really theirs.. Websites even chanrge more $ to Apple customers because they will pay higher. Apple products are like Disney people & Android people are like Lego people.

4:35 Somewhere in Australia there is a climate like anywhere else in the world, but possibly more-so, or "better", for farming. We have a company called "The Truffle Farm". Where I work (a high-rise), there is a woman who's business is named "The Truffle Lady", who's job it is to deliver truffles from a farm/ market, to chefs in nice cafes/ restaurants/ some pubs (Steampunk on the Gold Coast has truffle shavings on their chicken potato croquettes for instance. It's just a topping here). I think you might be wrong about truffles. They certainly *can be farmed* , in Australia.

Truffles are easy to grow. You just need the right climate because they can grow them by the boatload in China. Before you ask, the answer is NO...you will NOT be able to tell the difference between China and European Truffles. The European imports and use the China Truffles as their own but resells it to suckers at European prices.

Huckleberries? Bkueberries? Two separate species not closely related. If you mean blueberries, you can get varieties that will grow anywhere but Zone 1 or the desert. There are varieties which can grow in Florida on sandy calcium soil. Small bushes like a lot of snow, high bushes don't. both do best with a heavy woody mulch. my sisters raise some. Bought two-year-old plants and got berries the next year. Truffles are commercially grown in the US Northwest. Spore is in symbiosis with that type of tree it was found growing under.

3:16 it sounds almost like you're talking about cetaceans like whales and dolphin, but humans have no problems keeping them in tanks that are millions of times smaller than their natural habitat which harm their normal life cycle
Toothy Hace 14 días
i'm not arguing for whales in captivity, i personally think its torture to the animals, but i think he meant in the context of farming their young to raise and consume, not for display like in the case of whales. since we don't put whales on tanks to cultivate and consume them en masse either way, if an animal cannot live happily in a tank, do not put them in there

I believe the correct term for baby fish is "fry." Larva implies a sort of fundamental transformation (shedding an exoskeleton, growing legs, sprouting wings, etc) that fish don't do. Yes, the proportions of the fry are different from the adult, but for the most part, they simply grow.

With the berries why try to cover them? We could just keep the warm by farming them indoors.
Toothy Hace 14 días
he also mentioned that the soil conditions need to be just right, and as someone who volunteers on a farm, i gotta tell you that no matter how much you try to nourish soil, either in a plot or in the ground, it is EXTREMELY difficult to get it right. so difficult that for a picky plant like a huckleberry it probably isnt worth it when you could just grow blueberries instead. which is why they're trying to hybridize it.

Huckleberries are okay but probably one of the most overrated foods around. If they weren't so hard to grow/find no one would care. About the only time I'll eat them is off the bush while I'm hiking or camping. I'm a chef living in Montana and you gotta have 'em on everything or people freak out. Chokecherries have more flavor and blueberries are a good substitute. Buffalo Berries are much better but far less well known.
