Climate Clippings: Lawsuits, The Climate Gap, and a Better Drive
By Douglas Fischer, for the Daily Climate Courts Could Break Stalemate on International Climate Talks Lawyers Developing nations could use international law to break the current deadlock in the United Nations negotiations on climate change by taking industrialized nations to court, according to an analysis released today. "Climate change litigation has been described as the next big target for lawyers after tobacco, asbestos and food," wrote Christoph Schwarte, a lawyer for the Foundation for International Environmental Law and Development and the study's author. "A credible case for a legal wrong can be made." Schwarte suggested climate-vulnerable countries could hold industrialized nations responsible for their emissions using the so-called "no harm rule." That principle, well-established in international law, Schwarte wrote, holds a country is duty-bound to prevent, reduce and control the risk of environmental harm to other countries. The publication comes as government officials from around the world gather in Tianjin, China for three days of negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. While litigation faces various substantive and procedural legal hurdles, it could become a bargaining chip in the negotiations, Schwarte noted. "Developing country governments are understandably reluctant to challenge any of the big donor nations in an international court or tribunal," Schwarte said in a statement. "But this may change once the impacts of climate change become even more visible and an adequate agreement remains wanting." The UN climate talks, underway since 1992, have made little progress toward a global treaty, with prospects for ambitious emission reductions unlikely in the near-term. As a result billions of tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will be released into the atmosphere, and many scientists warn global temperatures could rise by 4 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. Schwarzenegger Nixes Community Climate Change Bill. A California effort to create a fund to help those most affected by climate change was vetoed last week by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The governor, in his veto message [pdf], said the state simply doesn't have the money. Assembly Bill 1405 would have dedicated a portion of any revenues generated by the state's climate change law to mitigate health or environmental burdens in the state's "most impacted and disadvantaged" communities. Advocates, noting that the effects of global warming are not felt equally, argued the fund would help shrink this so-called "climate gap." Such communities, they said, tend to be urban areas dominated by minority and low-income residents and hard hit by air pollution. Schwarzenegger countered that California regulators are already tasked under state law with lessening disproportionate impacts. "They have kept this commitment in mind," he wrote in his veto message. "Unfortunately, the bill proposes to spend money that does not currently exist and might not ever exist in a fund controlled by the state of California." New Lighting Leads the Way for a Dutch Tunnel NISHOEK, Netherlands Dutch engineers conducted an experiment this summer when they refurbished a small tunnel under an aqueduct here in the southwestern corner of the country. Instead of typical lighting, where lights are placed periodically and thus, from the driver's perspective, tend to flicker while cars zoom underneath, the revamped tunnel features continuous strips of cool white, energy-saving LED lamps. The result, Dutch officials say, is a safer tunnel where the lighting better mimics daylight conditions and offers far more detail and contrast to drivers. The LED lights also cut energy costs in half and maintenance costs by 90 percent versus traditional lamps over their projected 13-year lifespan. The 327-meter Vlaketunnel in Zeeland was built in 1975 and carries the four-lane Highway A58 under the Zuid-Beveland, once one of the busiest shipping channels in Europe. Authorities picked the LED lamps based on competitive bids that factored in renovation costs as well as maintenance and energy costs for the next 13 years to 15 years, said Ellen Visser, director of public roads and works for the Zeeland regional office of Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch public works agency. The Vlaketunnel is the first in the Netherlands to be renovated to new European Union safety standards; the Rijkswaterstaat estimates the country will need to spend 500 million over the next several years bringing other tunnels into compliance. "This is an experiment, but we consider it a success," Visser said. "So we will consider this for all other tunnels." But the technology, while successful here, needs more time to mature before it can compete everywhere, said Robert Boomer with Siemens, which took the lead on the lighting. "From a contractor's point of view, it's not always cheaper," he said. "It depends on the requirements. But in two years' time, it will be only LED." Editor's note: Douglas Fischer's trip to the Netherlands was paid for by the Dutch trade ministry. Agriculture Can Benefit from Cap-and-Trade, Study Finds The short-term costs to agriculture associated with a cap-and-trade climate policy is likely to be limited and can be offset in the long term by profits from carbon sequestration, according to a new analysis. The study [pdf], conducted by the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association, found farmers can reap credits for on-farm carbon sequestration without major land-use shifts. The majority of agricultural producers, the association said, could pocket money from cap-and-trade, particularly with high carbon prices. To capitalize on this, however, farmers would need better education and extension programs to identify the carbon sequestration potential of their lands. Standards that facilitate measurement and certification of emissions offsets, as well as cost-sharing programs to offset some sequestration practices would also help, the association concluded. "Farmers are sensitive to production cost increases and can adjust to a certain degree to mitigate any negative impacts that affect production costs," said Yong Jiang, a co-author of the study. "On the other hand, farmers may not be fully responsive to new policy-created market opportunities." Photos, from top: The International Court of Justice in the Hague, courtesy of the court.

Weird Food Names
By Amanda Greene Posted September 15, 2010 from While menus aren't usually considered works of comedy, a particular dish's namelike bubble and squeak or burgoooccasionally will elicit belly laughs. Thanks to their unusual origins or mangled etymology (like a game of telephone), the food names below are a humorous change from the standard fare. Spotted Dick Though spotted dick is a simple English dessert made from pudding and dried fruit, it induces giggles in preteens around the world. The name, which may have originated in the mid 19th century, describes the dish: the dried fruits, which are usually currants, look like spots, and "dick" is a version of the word dough, pudding or thick (which describes the dish's consistency). Photo: David Murray/Getty Images. Stinking Bishop Anyone who's been within smelling distance of this particular cheese understands the first part of its name: The wheels are said to have an odor that brings to mind dirty socks and wet towels. But the second half is purely coincidental. It's actually derived from Stinking Bishop pears, whose juice the cheese is immersed in. The pears got their name from their farmer, Mr. Bishop. Photo: Will Heap/Getty Images. Headcheese Oddly enough, headcheese isn't cheese at all. But you're going to wish it were. The gelatinous meat is made from chopped-up bits of the head of a pig, calf or cowincluding the tongueand sometimes the feet and heart. The origins of its name are unclear, but it's been suggested the source of the name could be either because the recipe used to contain cheese or because of the connected etymology of the words cheese and molded (molds are used to make headcheese). Photo: Jupiterimages/Getty Images. Bubble and Squeak Though it may sound more like a bath toy than a hearty meal, bubble and squeak is actually a traditional English dish made with leftovers from a holiday dinner or Sunday roast. The name comes from the sounds the foodoften pork, ham, sweet potatoes and root vegetablesmakes when it's frying in the pan. Photo: Ian Garlick/Getty Images. Bangers and Mash To us it sounds more like a rock band, but this dish consisting of sausage and mashed potatoes is popular pub fare in England. Across the pond, sausages are known as bangers, which can be traced back to World War I, when food shortages required people to pack sausages with a variety of fillings, causing them to pop and hissor make a "bang"when cooked. Photo: Jean Cazals/Getty Images. Burgoo Anyone from Kentucky can tell you that burgoo is a stew made from multiple meats simmered with veggies. As for the name, it's a toss-up as to its origins. It could be a variation on the French word for meat stew, ragout, a mispronunciation of barbecue or an interpretation of bulgur, from which burgoo was originally made. Photo: Maryellen Baker/Getty Images. Devils on Horseback A tasty treat with an ominous-sounding name, devils on horseback are prunes or dates stuffed with chutney and wrapped in bacon. The name is thought to have been inspired by its contrast to angels on horseback, which are oysterswhose curled edges resemble wingswrapped in bacon. Photo: Dorling Kindersley/Getty. Priest Choker Bearing no relation to the Stinking Bishop, strozzapreti (which means "priest choker" in Italian) is an elongated form of cavatelli pasta. Centuries ago in Italy it was common practice to let priests eat for free. So it is said that some restaurant owners wished the priests would choke on this thick pasta before they could get to their next (more expensive) course. Photo: iStockphoto. Limping Susan Hoppin' John, a Southern dish made from rice and black-eyed peas, has a less able-bodied cousin: Limping Susan, which is made with okra instead of peas. While Hoppin' John's name is credited to a variety of sources (the jumping around of the peas in the pan or the legendary servant John who invented the dish), it's anyone's guess as to where the slow-footed okra dish's name derived from. Photo: Andre Baranowski/Getty Images. Whoopie Pie These tasty cake-like confections have been making people happy for years. In fact, their name is believed to have come from the gleeful "Whoopie!" that Amish farmers would shout when they found one in their lunchbox. Hey, without electricity, it's the little things in life. Photo: Martin Jacobs/Getty Images.Source: posted by 3 Day Detox Permalink | Leave a comment

The Lost Girls: Taking the Road Less Traveled
Filed under: Tips & Tricks, Real Life Stories The Lost Girls A trip around the world opens doors to a dream Thousands of miles from their hectic Manhattan cubicles and whirlwind New York lives, where the thundering Iguaz Falls roar across the border between Argentina and Brazil, three friends were struck with a life-changing thought: "Was the road most frequently traveled the one that we wanted to follow?" #plain_module { width: 590px; height:170px; border: none; float:left; margin:0px; font-size:12px;} #plain_module img {border:none; width: 13px; height:14; border: 0px; margin:0px; } #plain_module .mini_main { margin: 0px; padding:0px; width:585px; height:220px; repeat scroll 0 0} #plain_module .mini_item_header {padding:10px 0px; margin: 0px 0px; font-size:16px; color: #555555; border-bottom:1px dotted #CCCCCC;} #plain_module .mini_item {padding:5px 0px; margin: 0px 0px;} #plain_module a { color: #49A3CA; text-decoration:none; } #plain_module a:hover { color: #F98419; text-decoration:underline;} span.gray {color:#949494;} .mini_main li{list-style-type: none;background-image: url(;background-repeat: no-repeat;background-position: 0 1px;padding-left: 10px;} The year was 2005, and this simple line in the prologue of the new book "The Lost Girls: Three Friends, Four Continents, One Unconventional Detour Around The World" -- written by Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett and Amanda Pressner -- is at the heart of an incredible around-the-world journey that took the young women 60,000 miles around the globe in 2006 for a year that would change their lives. "The original day of inspiration came one day when we were on that trip in Argentina," said Pressner during an exclusive interview with AOL Travel. "It was a 10-day getaway without phones, without computers or anything. And that was the day we said, 'Let's do it.'" In the book, the trio, who were all 28 years old when they set off traveling, describe their self-dubbed moniker, "the Lost Girls," as "a term describing our own uncertainty about the future and an emotional state we felt represented many in our generation." Each woman had her own reason for wanting to leave the comfort and relative certainty of her New York life to see the world. And the path they took to make their dream journey a reality is as interesting as the route itself, which carried them by train, bus, airplane and tuk-tuk through a dozen countries, including such exotic destinations as Kenya, New Zealand and Laos. Lost Girls Amanda Pressner, Jennifer Baggett and Holly Corbett at Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand "I was struggling with a relationship, I was at a crossroads," said Baggett. "As women, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves with these deadlines. And I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to achieve these goals by a certain age." For Pressner, it was being passed over for a promotion at her stressful magazine job that finally made her decide it was time to set sail for different shores. "I'd taken on more and more work and responsibilities, and was all of a sudden overwhelmed. I felt like I was living in the office," she recalled. "I rationalized that this was what my 20s were for -- to move up the ladder and achieve these goals." But when Pressner did not receive the promotion she had worked so hard for, she says, "an alarm went off, and I realized I was missing out on other parts of life." Corbett's inspiration for the yearlong trip was different still. "I was happy in my job, had gotten a promotion. I was happy in my relationship and in New York. Nothing critical happened to send me on the road," she said. "I wanted adventure. I thought, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity -- I'm not married, I don't have kids. I just knew I had to do it and if I didn't, I would regret it." Lost Girls in Peru While still in New York, saving money became their main prerogative. "We cut out things like manicures and pedicures, didn't buy coffee and entertained ourselves at home," Pressner explained. "We sold books online, clothes on eBay and our couch to our neighbors -- we killed two birds with one stone by getting rid of things and making some money, too." Pressner added that she often hears from people looking to do a similar trip that money and the fear of taking time out of the career rat race are major deterrents to traveling. "But it doesn't really hit home, saving here and there, until you realize how cheaply you can live abroad," she said. "We did not go to Europe on this trip for a reason. In Europe you could easily spend $50 a day and in India you could spend $15. In India, we realized had we not had that extra Starbucks, we could have slept an extra night." Before their big adventure, Pressner's and Baggett's foreign travels had included a post-university (the two were college roommates) backpacking trip around Europe and a short vacation in Belize. Corbett had seen a bit more of the world when she did Semester at Sea during her college years -- an experience that took her everywhere from Vancouver and Hong Kong to Malaysia and India. And when it came to deciding where they would travel together, each woman had a must-see destination of her own. Tips for People Looking to Take the Leap Lost Girl Amanda Pressner says, "Set a date and stick to it. We've found that the most difficult thing about planning an extended journey is simply deciding to go and committing to it. By circling a date on the calendar -- and letting everyone in your life know that you're hitting the road after that -- the rest (saving, storing your stuff, giving notice at work) will eventually fall into place. If you can, find a friend to travel with you for at least the first couple weeks of your adventure and schedule a few fun planning sessions together over coffee -- the adventure and excitement you'll share will start long before you get on the plane." Lost Girl Holly Corbett says, "Don't let fear hold you back if long term travel is one of your dreams. But you don't have to do something as drastic as we did and quit your job and pack up your life to travel for a year. You can get lost anywhere! It's all about getting out of your comfort zone or doing something you love. If you've always wanted to try yoga, sign up for a class. If you want to experiment with making different kinds of foods, visit a specialty food store or farmer's market in your hometown. My favorite way to get lost is to hop on my bike without an agenda or a map to explore new neighborhoods and see what I'll find." Lost Girl Jennifer Baggett says, "I don't spend money on shoes or bags or things -- any savings I am able to sock away, I put toward traveling. And timing is important, too. We had established ourselves and our careers enough before leaving and we worked hard until the very end. If you're a hard worker and don't burn bridges -- and give plenty of notice -- chances are your boss will be understanding." Once the women made the commitment to travel together, they began a serious strategy of saving money. And a year after their first South America trip together, the women were ready to hit the road for a much deeper journey. All three friends agreed that they needed to take a year away to fully immerse in the experience. "We always said if we were going to quit our jobs and pack up our lives, it couldn't be a one-month thing," said Corbett. "But I always had it in my mind that maybe we'd come back in six months -- it's a huge thing to comprehend that you'll be on the move and on the go for a year." For Pressner, experiencing more of South America and hiking the Inca trail was high on her wish list. Baggett had always dreamed of visiting Kenya, and was thrilled when her friends were just as excited as she was to spend a month volunteering at a remote village orphanage for girls during their trip. Corbett had her sights set on India, where she spent time in an ashram meditating and learning to teach yoga. Some of the Lost Girls' wildest memories? For Corbett, it was when they got stranded in Colca Canyon, Peru, stuck out their thumbs to hitchhike and were picked up by a priest in a minivan. Firm in Pressner's mind is riding on the back of a motorbike through the hinterlands of Laos to meet a nun who had created a tree house spa inside a monastery outside of Vientiane. "I got there and she was one of the oldest women I had ever seen," Pressner said. "She answered my questions via her niece (who translated) and predicted that I would one day return -- and then proceeded to advise me to stay away from men for good!" In Rio de Janeiro, Baggett and Pressner went to a favela funk party after receiving an impromptu invitation from a fellow traveler. "The tin walls pulsed with reggaeton base beats," wrote Baggett in the book. "An immense crowd bounced and swayed in perfect rhythm. And sweat formed steam clouds in the un-air-conditioned space, where a clothing optional rule was in full effect." While each of the women took a short time to travel solo during their journey, most of their travels were experienced together. "I've traveled alone, I've traveled with boyfriends," said Corbett, "and I love traveling with my girl friends." "I was an only child, but now I have two sisters, not to sound cheesy," added Baggett. "That's really important to me." That close friendship formed an important support network when the three women returned to New York City after their year on the road was over. "Having Jen and Holly going through the same thing was like a built in support group," said Pressner. "Plus, we were going back to New York City, and there's an excitement to the city that can make it feel like you're still traveling." Though Baggett admits she had frightening moments on the road, when she wondered if she had committed career suicide and worried about re-entering the New York dating scene, she said the trip's lessons were invaluable. "The trip taught me to take more calculated risks and not just stay the course because I think this is the career I worked toward, I have to stay in it," she said. "I learned to really evaluate what I am passionate about." Baggett recently started her dream job at the Food Network in New York City and Pressner and Corbett are pursuing freelance careers from their bases in New York City and Upstate New York. The Lost Girls In addition to the recent debut of their book and popularity of their travel blog and website, there's more exciting news for the women, all 32 years old now, of late -- Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV will be producing a pilot for a potential new television series on ABC that's based on the "The Lost Girls" book and blog. "There will be actors playing us," Corbett said. "It's going to be dramatized, with story lines added in to make it more exciting, but it's based on our book and travel characters." While the women claim no regrets about their trip, Corbett said there is something she would do differently. "We did a whirlwind tour through Southeast Asia during the trip, and we got kind of road weary," she said, adding that the places they stayed longest -- including Kenya, India and Peru -- were among the most fulfilling. "I wish we did more slow traveling and didn't rush through certain parts of the trip because you get to interact with people and learn a lot more." That chance, surely, will come. But for now, the women are working on another travel-related book together. And no matter how busy their lives get, the Lost Girls made a pact to travel together once a year for the rest of their lives. Last year they went to Panama. This year's reunion trip will take the threesome to San Francisco and Napa Valley for wine tasting. "I think I had almost a snobbery about wanting to travel abroad before I left," said Pressner, "but now I am seeing there's so much to see here in the U.S." The women want to encourage more of the world's lost girls and boys to get out there and experience all the world has to offer -- whether by planning a trip to another country, or getting inspiration closer to home with a cooking class or through volunteering. "So many women write to us and say, 'I'm a lost girl, too,'" said Baggett. "We want people to know you can really do it. We never thought we could do it, and we did." "I think people really want to travel, they're just waiting for permission," said Pressner. "A lot of us tell ourselves it's impossible to take time off of work to travel, there's not enough money, not enough time," she said, "but make that decision and set a date you feel comfortable with for sometime in the future. Buy a plane ticket and you'll be surprised how things fall into place." The Lost Girls' Tips for Women Travelers Lost Girl Amanda Pressner says, "If you're nervous about kicking off a solo adventure, try to start your journey in a large international city (Buenos Aires, Bangkok, Paris) or cultural hub (Antigua, Guatemala; Cuzco, Peru) where you can take language school classes or do a multi-week volunteer program. In both situations, you'll be in a stable, structured setting where you can get acclimated to your surroundings and meet other like-minded travelers. You'll find that many of them will be also be on their own -- and those new friendships can quickly lead to new traveling companions." Lost Girls Holly Corbett says, "The world was a much safer place than we'd thought (or the news portrays), and for every jerk out there, there was always a person who'd step in and act like a guardian angel. But it's important to always remember to keep your guard up and don't put yourself in dangerous situations -- wandering around dark alleys at 3 a.m. is not a good idea!" Lost Girls Jennifer Baggett says, "It's a lot safer and a lot easier than people think. We were amazed at how few problems we had in places like Nairobi and Rio de Janeiro that have reputations for being dangerous. It's amazing how kind people are, how much they're willing to help you as a traveler. You always have resources wherever you go. When I stayed in Bangkok by myself, I was never alone. I had a thousand friends I met at the hostels. As Americans, and as an English-speaking nation, the world is so wired for English. We can pretty much go anywhere. Even if you're in places where they don't speak English, there is generally someone who will. And there's so much you can communicate with a smile and by pointing at a guidebook."

New Entry Sustainable Farming Project Turns Refugees Into Farmers
DRACUT, Mass. The bullet wounds show on Rechhat Proum's back when he bends down to pull lemon grass or water spinach on his farm in peaceful northern Massachusetts. When the 56-year-old Cambodian refugee lifts a pumpkin, the movement of his shirt reveals deep stab wounds on his stomach. Nearby, Bessie and Samuel Tsimba tend African maize. The Zimbabwean immigrants deflect questions about the country's violence and instead direct attention to the freshness of their cucumbers. "They'll taste better than what you'll get at most supermarkets," promises Bessie, 43. Proum and the Tsimbas got their start through a program that has quietly trained about 150 refugees of war, famine and genocide in modern farming to help them integrate into American life. On farms along the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border, the refugees have slowly replaced aging farmers and put back into use land that has been idle for years, the program's organizers said. They supply the region's farmers markets and ethnic stores with beets, cabbage, egg plant, Asian spices and other produce. "Some were farmers. Some come from a family of farmers," said Jennifer Hashley, project director of the 12-year-old New Entry Sustainable Farming Project. "What we do is provide them with the means to return to agriculture by figuring out financial resources and developing a production plan." The program was launched in 1998 largely with the help of John Ogonowski, the pilot on American Airlines flight 11 to Los Angeles that crashed into the World Trade Center during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Ogonowski served as the program's first mentor farmer and let Cambodian and Hmong refugees use his land to get started. Proum credited Ogonowski for introducing him to modern irrigation techniques and said Ogonowski wouldn't accept money from him, only fresh vegetables. After Sept. 11, Ogonowski's widow, Peggy, helped create a farm trust as a memorial to her husband. Meanwhile, Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition Science's Center for Agriculture, Food and Environment secured $500,000 in grants to expand the program and train more farmers, Hashley said. Under the program, refugees take a six-week course at Tufts on agriculture and commercial farming. Would-be farmers then enter a three-year transition program in which they farm small plots, typically earning $5,000 to $10,000 a year to help supplement their non-farm incomes. Bessie Tsimba, of Tyngsboro, a second-year trainee with her husband, said working her plot has introduced her to the basics of farming and allowed her to pick uve-year moratorium to the board, citing the species' dire condition. Long Island lobsterman John German said he was relieved the moratorium was killed. But he said the industry can't survive any new cuts. Previously: Associated Press: WARWICK, R.I.--A proposal to ban lobster fishing over a vast stretch of the East Coast would do "almost biblical" damage to the industry just as the species seems to be rebounding, lobstermen said Thursday. Dozens of lobstermen traveled to Warwick for a meeting of the board that advises the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission on lobster rules. The board is considering ways to help a species that's been struggling since a population crash a decade ago, including a possible five-yp techniques from other refugees. "You hear all sorts of languages when you're out here," said Tsimba, while cutting weeds with a machete. "We pick up new ideas from each other." The apprentice farmers also work to find steady, new markets to sell their produce. "People call me up for orders and I can barely keep up," said Tsimba, who sells to African churches in northern Massachusetts. After three years, graduates lease a new plot from the trust set up by Peggy Ogonowski or New Entry helps them find other land. Visoth Kim, 64, of Lawrence, one of the program's original farmers, has built a steady business on a couple of acres he leases. A former teacher and survivor of the Khmer Rouge, a regime that slaughtered more 20 percent of the Cambodian population in the 1970s, Kim sells sweet potatoes, redroot pigweed and tomatoes to Boston-based Tropical Foods and stores in Maine. "I wake up at 4 every morning and pay close attention to everything I grow," Kim said. "They like what I give them." Lori Deliso, marketing manager for the Lexington Farmers Market in Lexington, Mass., said refugee farmers have introduced new foods to her market that proved popular, even if customers were a little apprehensive at first about buying "exotic" vegetables. "They've been great to work with and they always bring different kinds of ethnic foods," Deliso said. "They offer wonderful suggestions on recipes and are quick to show us how good everything tastes." The program has developed a reputation for teaching about locally grown food and is now attracting American-born would-be farmers, Hashley said. In three years, it has grown from 15 trainees a year to 30 with more than half American-born. Amanda Munsie, 34, of Wilmington, said she came from a family of Ohio farmers and wanted to get involved in the locally grown food movement. African and Asian refugees in the New Entry program introduced her to new foods. "They farm so differently than the way we did back in Ohio," said Munsie, a trainee who farms next to the Tsimbas. "Now, I want to grow some of (their) vegetables because they looked so colorful and tasty to eat." Proum, who recently lost his full-time job at a technology company, said farming his 3-acre lot gives him solace and keeps him busy. If he is idle, his mind drifts to painful memories of the Cambodian-Vietnamese war or losing his friend Ogonowski on Sept. 11, he said. "I don't like to think about all of that," Proum said while looking over his Chinese long beans. "I want to think about these."
