#343 Lessons I Learned This Week
Join pediatric speech-language Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP from teachmetotalk.com as she discusses lessons she learned thsi week volunteering in a new summer program with toddlers. Read the summary here:
About Ramzan  Id
We thought of publishing this short episode on  occasion of Ramazan Id (in many parts of the world spelt as Ramadan Id). Also  known as Eid al-Fitr (ʻĪd al-Fiṭr) According to Wikipedia, this festival is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). This festival marks the end of Ramadan fasting and is a day for celebrations. Family members greet one another and there are prayers and social gatherings. Traditional sweet dishes are prepared.  Eid Mubarak to listeners
Chill: The science of cooking, pt. 2
From ice cubes to ice cream, cold things are a crucial part of cuisine. How do we use chill to our advantage? This is part two of our series on the science of cooking, a collaboration with the brilliant foodies at America's Test Kitchen Kids. This episode is (literally) super cool. We're figuring out how refrigerators work and why some of their parts are hot. We're traveling back in time to find out how selling ice became a very big business (for a while anyway). And we'll learn why ice cream makes people thirsty and how to make incredibly delicious paletas. Plus: Our Moment of Um tackles the question, "Why do mints make your mouth feel cold?" For more recipes and information for young chefs, head to americastestkitchen.com/kids to sign up for their newsletter. Brains On is sponsored today by Children’s Cancer Research Fund (ccrf.org/brainson)

What does a seed need to grow? A kid? An idea?  Andrew & Polly ask many different people about growing many different things.    How does bird poop bring the world together? With peppers, of course! Uncle Fred tells us about germination, the first World's Hottest Pepper (Bhut Jolokia), and BIRD POOP. If you aren't a dragon and like spicy stuff, you can check out the Sparkling River Pepper Company's smoke dried peppers, sauces and spice blends at sparking-river.com   Our neighbor Miriam takes us to visit the Peace Garden, an urban garden space at Peace4Kids in South Central Los Angeles for youth in the foster care system. Zaid started the garden, Alex tends it, and a blue-bellied lizard named Tom visits it.  Miriam, Alex, and Zaid talk about the garden, their experience with youth in foster care through the non-profit Peace4Kids (celebrating 20 years! 🎉), what nature means to them, and what seeds - and ideas - need to grow.  You can learn more and support their work at peace4kids.org and see Miriam's artwork at miriamcortez.com.  We'll post photos of the Peace Garden (and Tom!) at instagram.com/andrewandpolly   Many thanks to Fred Gray, Miriam Cortez, Alex Zalder, Zaid Gayle, and our friends Amelia, Bennett, Charlie, Sam and Kalinga for talking to us about growing all kinds of things.    We hope you like listening and thinking with us - consider giving us a review to help Ear Snacks grow!

The Grateful Mouse (or, The Lion and the Mouse)
You will find various versions of this story in Panchatantra, Aesops Fables. One hot afternoon, a lion was fast asleep when a mouse entered the lion's den and jumped all around the lion, and thus woke him up. The lion caught him and was about to kill him, when the little mouse pleased with the lion to let him go. "I will help you in return some day". The lion was rather amused to hear this, thinking, “What good can he do me. . . ” but he let him go. A few days later, the lion was trapped in a net that was cast by some hunters. He struggled hard to set himself free but, he soon realised he was trapped. He roared with anger. The little mouse heard the lion’s roar, and see­ing the lion caught in the net, he started gnawing away at the net at once. The mouse had sharp teeth and he soon freed the lion. Moral of the story is :"Make friends, however strong or weak they may be" You can learn more about this story, including information on the image used for this story, by visiting [www.gaathastory.com/grateful-mouse.](www.gaathastory.com/grateful-mouse)

The Farmer and His Sons
This is a story about a farmer and his lazy sons. Listen to this tale to know how the farmer teaches his sons the importance of hard work. You can listen to many such amazing stories by visiting [www.gaathastory.com](https://www.gaathastory.com) Once upon a time, a hardworking farmer had four sons. The farmer worked very hard in the field, but the sone were least interested in farming. Instead, they would spend their time lazying around. The farmer once day fell very sick, and he felt that his end was near.  He called his sons to his side, and expressed his sadness because he had failed in making his sons realize the importance of hard working. He told the sons that there was a treasure hidden in the field, and that he wanted his sons to find the treasure. Once the old farmer died, the sons took up their sickles and ploughs, and dug up the entire field in search of the treasure. Three months thus passed, but they did not find any treasure. However, because of their efforts, they could raise a bumper crop, and make a lot of money by selling the grains.  The sons had learnt a valuable lesson that hard work yields great rewards.

The wonderful weirdness of water
Pour yourself a nice glass of water, and take a close look at it. Seems pretty boring, right? It’s clear, doesn’t have a taste or smell, and just sits there. It you were trying to come up with the most ordinary thing imaginable, water might be right up there with shoelaces or potato chips. But behind it’s bland appearance, a wonderfully weird substance is hiding in plain sight. In this episode of Brains On, we explore some of the weird things water can do, like move against gravity! Or cut right through rock! We learn some of the reasons why water is so weird, and fill you in on how you can learn more about the water in your neighborhood. How is water weird? Let’s start with a water oddity that’s easy to see. Ice, the solid form of water - floats on it’s liquid! Substances can exist in 3 forms or phases: gas, liquid, and solid. These phases are different because the atoms or molecules, what makes up all the stuff in the universe, are arranged differently. Gas molecules move around really quickly, and have lots of space between them. Liquid molecules are much closer together, but still moving and flexible. Solids are packed tight, the atoms right up next to each other. Almost everything gets denser as it moves from gas to liquid to solid. But not water! When water solidifies into ice, it becomes less dense and floats! NOAA / Flickr An Arctic iceberg captured on camera aboard the NOAA Ship Fairweather in 2012. Another weird factoid - hot water seems to freeze faster than cold water! That’s right, in a race to the icy finish line, hot water will get there faster than cold water, despite having further along the thermometer to travel! This phenomenon is known as the Mpemba effect, named after Erasto Mpemba, a Tanzanian high school student who observed this phenomenon while making ice cream! Scientists still aren’t confident they know why this happens. SOFIZMAT Erasto Mpemba, the Tanzanian high school student who discovered firsthand that hot water freezes faster than cold water while making ice cream back in the 1960s. Water is what’s called a “universal solvent” which means it is really good at dissolving stuff. Table salt? No problem. Vitamins and minerals? Easy peasy. A vertical mile of rock? Give water enough time and it can carve the Grand Canyon. Water can climb upwards against gravity, absorb an unusually high amount of heat energy, and transport essential nutrients throughout our body. Why is water so weird? Well it turns out that it boils down to the forces that hold water together. Like everything, water is made up of atoms, those tiny-building blocks that make up all the stuff in the universe. Atoms combine to form molecules, and in the case of water, two hydrogen atoms combine with one oxygen atom to form H2O! Every H20 molecule has an end with a positive charge and an end with a negative charge, just like a magnet does. The Oxygen atom has a small negative charge, and the two Hydrogen atoms have an even smaller positive charge. And just like a magnet, negative and positive ends attract one another. These small attractions are called hydrogen bonds, and are indicated by the dotted lines in this picture. Clear Biology Water molecules: Dotted lines indicate hydrogen bonds These attractions are called hydrogen bonds because they only form between hydrogen atoms and other charged molecules. These Hydrogen bonds between the different water molecules are a lot weaker than the bonds that hold the two hydrogen atom to the oxygen atom of a single H2O molecule. It’s kind of like the difference between a firm, long lasting handshake and a quick high-five. Plus, Hydrogen bonds exist for just a fraction of a second, 10 picoseconds to be exact (a picosecond is to one second, what one second is to  31,700 years!) So you’ve got all these water molecules zooming around, “high-fiving” their neighbors, and being pulled together just a little bit more by hydrogen bonds. This little extra pull means water molecules can to stick really well to each other. And it helps them stick to other stuff without getting stuck, since the hydrogen bonds are so easily broken. It also explains why water expands when it freezes, since these H-bonds get “stuck” below 32 ℉, leaving more room between the molecules and making ice less dense than liquid water! Check out this video to learn more: What makes water so weird is also what makes it so essential for life. In fact, in addition to supporting life by transporting nutrients and energy, helping our cells do their work, filling the gaps between cells, and even making up the bulk of our bodies (about 70%!), water was likely a crucial player in the origin of life itself! Listen to the podcast to hear all about it! This episode was powered by the Water Main, a new initiative from American Public Media focused on connecting people to their water resources.

Our question from JoJo is, “Why do we need sleep?” Find out more about the science of sleep on our blog. And check out our NEW TRAVEL BLOG! Tumble Travels is written for both kids and adults. Follow our adventures on Instagram, too! This episode features music (about sleep science!) from The Pop Ups. Check out their new album, GIANTS OF SCIENCE, with songs about science and innovation.
