6:30 am
the o, right now there are 2000000000 people who are overweight or obese. is profitable to sell food. that is trinity and sugary and healthy and addicted. not at the individual level. it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that will never change as obesity epidemic, that industry has been influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific establishment, ah, what's driving the obesity epidemic? it's corporate. me. ah, the
6:31 am
years ago, very previous emergency food at 1015 right now, the children, the offspring of the cicadas, are crawling on me. there are more than 3000 species. periodical cicada is worldwide. they're found on every continent except in article. but it's only here in the eastern half the united states that we had 17 and 13 year periodical k. this part of what makes this so special is this particular breed which we call breed 10 or brewed act, which makes it ever much more mysterious x marks the spot. this is the most widely distributed brood of 17 years. the cade is found anywhere on planet earth, all the way from georgia to long island, new york, and west ohio,
6:32 am
illinois in indiana. this means that in the eastern half of the united states, we're going to have billions, if not trillions of periodical cicada is interacting with tens of millions of human beings in their back yard. that's going to create some very interesting situation. oh i my name is melissa rose. i'm an artist based off of long island, new york. and right now we're in south new york, right. my grandparents olds house. this place from my childhood where i used to run around him, pick up the rocks outside with my grandma, and find bugs and watch the cicadas emerge. and it all really impacted me.
6:33 am
and i didn't really realize until i ended up going to art school and pursuing my passion in bio art, which is what i consider myself. i'm a bio artist. i or this is my very 1st by alter that. i mean, i have a few cicadas that are showcase from this piece that i use and both of them were found on shelter with my father. and he took me to the nature preserve that he was working at a lot of the things that have inspired me have been the symbology within the insects that i have found throughout my lifetime in my childhood that i held on to . and for a while, i kept them in these little boxes in my room, and i was not sure what to do with them until one day dawned upon me to make a place of worship for them. and somewhere where i can honor them
6:34 am
and the photographer, naturalist, and children's mcarthur, and i live right here in chestnut hill and northwest part of philadelphia. so this is my latest coming invasion of the periodicals because i came to rock creek park to look for k this and i think i'm here a little bit early. but right now i'm looking for nymphs, which are underground. next, spend their time feeding on the tree roots and then in the spring, they build a little time going up to the surface. often that title hit the bottom log and you can find the cicada right there at the bottom. the log in this neighborhood like this. one in rockville with great place to find the key to see the old trees and the lawn. well, mrs area hasn't been the served for a long time,
6:35 am
at least not completely disturbed. look at this. well, there's a tunnel, 12345 tunnels under here. they're ready to emerge as soon as the conditions are right. and those conditions include the $64.00 degree oil temperature after a good rainstorm, when the boil is reached, that temperature will come out by the 1000000. this is my very 1st sketchbook that really started off. my interest was cicadas and there symbology. throughout my art this, the cato, we actually found in the greek mountains and that was the 1st 2nd i ever saw. and it really sparked a lot of inspiration. multiple setting of the shell of the cicada symbolizes the many stages of transformation required of a person. before all illusions had been broken and one reach of the white and japanese culture. the cicada is seen as a symbol over incarnation,
6:36 am
since they are constantly shutting their skin and leaving behind nothing but and to show their also symbolizes evanescence. through their short listen i there's a place on long island. it's called wildwood state park, and that's where me and my friends used to go all the time like growing up in high school. and i found a bunch of cicadas there once, and there was this tree that i found and someone must put a saw in the tree. and it was just stuck like me and my friend trust and we're trying to pull it out. we couldn't pull it out, and unfortunately he passed away a few months later. and i remember i went back to the tree and there was a cicada on the saw. and that's what i base one of my paintings on. i honestly felt like it was him coming to visit me. i really feel like it's all symbolic with each
6:37 am
other because so many things in life are just like so ephemeral and they pass you by like the cicadas are and they live underground for lake 13 to 18 years and they come up just for 3 weeks. and they buzz around and they sing their songs and they dance and dance, and then they kind of die. it can make you sad for me when i think about my friend, it just makes really happy because he had a really good life even though is short and it reminds me a lot of the middle for gators and what they think their song like. i feel like he is like what? really beautiful and yeah i actually i made a short film in my sophomore year. i college that highlighted on that and i i made a piano so me,
6:38 am
me . i i mean, i think you can enjoy the here, isn't it? if you met my name is doug and i live in philadelphia. and my
6:39 am
favorite, my favorite insect as a month is what the 1st thing to know isn't cicadas are homeless and he's i should worry if they land on you or if they fly and you listen to change. ok. you went to timble how they mean? okay. and you know, have, in the day they vibrate it, right, they pop it in and out. this is what it looks like. i found the dead one and they cut it open. oh, these are the things your muscles. and they, they move really fast popping that this little drop in and out. notice also that the key to this is a meal ticket is empty inside reason with empty is it because it's like a musical instrument, like a guitar. it has a space inside. it allows the to resume,
6:40 am
improves the sound and amplifies the sound so that the song carried farther. go once the cicadas are up in the tree top, it's all going to be about romance. it's very much like human. once they get eyeball to eyeball, the males dictated, has to use his very best performance to try to convince that special someone that they showed hook up and she should be the mother of this. and then he's going to use a variety of courtship songs and his performance has to be good because it's everybody know, it's always the females that get to choose. we think one that things the loudest, just like in the club, has the best performance. he may be the one that wins seeing aloud singing long may when the heart of the female kid. that's what he coping for. i hope in maryland right now,
6:41 am
getting ready to go into the cater festival. and we traveled like $44.00 or 5 hours yesterday from long island, new york to come here and see all the succeeded. so magical, there's so many cases everywhere. fly around and hatching. and we saw them last night at the hotel just everywhere. yeah, i wasn't really, i wasn't sure how local really react to this because oh by oh, he just made the car locals are kind of like like different ends of the spectrum. like there's like a whole festival for them over here. and a lot of people are excited, but even last i met a couple of people who didn't really like the cicada. there is one lady who said that she absolutely hated them and she was scared of them. and they used to fly into her hair when she was a little kid. so she just didn't have great memories of them. and i talked to her about my r and i told her i came here to see them. and she was like,
6:42 am
completely shocked. but she actually really liked my artwork and asked her my card and wanted me to design it, had to for her. so it's just like really funny how all of that kind of come full circle. because one of the main things with my work is to kind of get people to see the bugs in like the cicadas, specifically right now, like in a different way and to accept their beauty, even if they don't really like how many there are. and if they don't like creepy crawly and stuff like that, it actually hurts a little bit when they get on your neck. he how or not feel morally and i came here to photograph the emergence of the cater in to see the math is the kid here. this is like the center of the brute can emergent. fortunately, my cousin lives here. so i've got a place to stay late and i
6:43 am
definitely feel the need for but i was definitely feeling the maid's part with being overwhelmed by the creepiness. i was just feeling dread at everybody's post a thing like they're coming. they're coming or like showing picture that like one or 2 and just this is the beginning. it just sort of felt like very foreboding. and i didn't know what to expect. i think i'm trying to counteract that sense of dread by trying to find the sense of wonder and i want to be able to go outside every once while i was afraid of the kid is very a little bit that you are afraid of that mom. when the girls named the mayor and the president who are the same person right or the same cicada, the named him zan. he probably fell off. he does have,
6:44 am
he has a injured wing and so there tending to him by delivering burritos and cake with her grass and little roots wrapped up in the other room in a nice package. and suzanne, still doing okay. they are really interesting and fun to catch and harmless, they don't actually hurt people. ah, ah, ah, me the whatever.
6:45 am
the democratic dominated select committee investigating the events of january 6 on capitol hill has been constituted and we'll start proceedings next week. would be merely political theatre, a proverbial lunch room, food bite on national display. one thing is for sure these proceedings will reflect deep political divisions. fagley finding the truth looks to be of secondary importance. i don't
6:46 am
want to get it for my fiance. oh that is so you can have it. you seem really cool. what's your name at? awesome. you're so cool. i feel like you got an artistic sold to you like the bug. so my initial idea to do this project and my project was supposed to take one afternoon. i was trying to make these insects more attractive for my kids. so all this is julia. you can say hi. and what do you think about impacts when i make them do things that human makes them? do you think that humans view the timeline was very, very fast. the one i photographed them cicadas and over the weekend i posted a very short post on our local next door, which is our little social network for all the people that live in the area. and
6:47 am
everyone love the idea and told me that they wanted to share my photos with their friends and families. so i put an extra tab on my website in that when pretty viral in the next 24 hours. and the next thing i know, washington post, what is to future me and i've been contacted by pretty much every news like local and national news. and ours, the kiddos have to go into outer space because the planet has gotten a little too small for them. so obviously some of the cicadas and not have very high tolerance for alcohol because they are already passing out since our keaton, i don't know if they're going to be around july 4th. it's still
6:48 am
a month away or so i decided to throw them in independence day party to make sure that they have lots of fun before their short lights are over. oh no, there is a fight, look about. oh dear. this was one of my earlier said, it's kind of simple, but it's just lots of fun. it just rings true with a lot of people who after a year and a half of being in lockdown, looking forward to just celebrating with their friends and family and grill. from the idea behind us is twofold. one is my personal interest in creating a community that normalize the data eating because i wanted to. but i thought it was growth. so i was like, i needed some moral support to do that myself and grill. oh,
6:49 am
grilly. oh, i'm in like a mild, sort of like, i wouldn't say sure. i would say like, he's like a me a worm. if you never even one of those, it's not going to help you out much. you how do you because you were air for 600 or 6 minutes or 400 degrees. the old they really reminded me at the sea food, so it does have the 1st time i got that that people told me i would get. whereas most the other ones, it was more like a peanut giving you the full lifespan of the cicada than them to the toner. all goes to the full, mature adult. yeah, look at that beautiful morsel morsels. yeah. the marshal cycle. try one of the, it's very mild. it's just kind of like took a i did you,
6:50 am
did you think it is the case i just wrote, why not? i was a good lie to me. i mean that's not very satisfying. cicadas or just so plentiful, and i know from past broods that a lot of them are going to get eaten and even if they don't, they're going to die really soon after that. and so the ethical concern is somewhat less about like causing individual suffering. so again, like i needed a whole festival, but it worked, it worked for me and it worked for a lot of i guess it's like more normal now, i'm not ready to pick up a great big,
6:51 am
juicy grub from the compost or from our mulch pile. and pop it in my mouth, but i might roast it. i might air fry it in there was a whole here given to the committee for the cave as before. i could be a little kinder to him and also to keep him from turning dark in white color. he have a friday night. 17 years ago i still was year cicadas are back. and oh my goodness today. ah no roar was so loud,
6:52 am
it was in the side that i heard it. i thought there was war traffic, but no, it was a that was i mean, bad, bad. like i don't mind it. where does that randomly think that? i know like when you're down the street. i you me if i you know, i don't one. yeah. either covering the side was targeted and you're just like, wow, i'm even yeah. so like you're walking around, you have to be like like this. you don't step on any kind of go then you know. 2 the key, so this is, this is a decimal meter. when it, when you're quiet. yeah. then you basically make your go to
6:53 am
7080. yeah. but yesterday it was really loud. so i went to like it was more loud, so i went up to 80 on the thing and said when i 80, that is the sound. it sounds like like a good blender. yeah. one is always like basically like having your food, wonder outside or old times you think it's a mirror and a female it might be more than a human. they mean it's like a like say hello. are they going to, if you think they're just past each other? yeah, mode yeah. was up in the trees might be, well, i guess on the play was mailed to singing. it's just a k to police, and it's all about romance. the guy, those teenage cicada is, are rocking out. they've been underground social distance thing. living a cold with like existence for 17 years in a, they're teenagers. they're going to sing. they're going to have roman much the same
6:54 am
way. we're taking off our math, we're getting together with friends, to socialize, listening to music and romance. you can see in the last hair when they are coming out of their shell, when they're most, they have so many things that can go wrong. and so they'll like damage their little soft body slightly. yeah. and then they begin to lose chemo. so i noticed in watching them and it turned from clear to o blessone to gray, to black as it was oxidising with eric closure. so it's just like this really magical thing that was happening while we would collect them and they would be, you know, they would have dropped from the tree and be slightly bruised or something. and then this liquid got lacquer in black or so i thought let me and it turns out it
6:55 am
makes very colors that i've done some solar tests and it does not disappear or fade in the sun either. so it's like really color fast, like my husband into deer hunter and we use every part of the. yeah. and it's the same even with with fluids and plants by harvest herbs for soup. once i strip the leaves, i'm like, well, deserves. i don't want to waste them either. so they go in like the here for thing. you know, we've been married returning. i forgot to think that was a male female, a different thing. ah,
6:56 am
female has more liquid in oh, near you look at the role in the environment. it's kind of like a big bonus. they come out every 17 years. quite a number of animals probably get a big population, who during that time period caught a kina just after mid metamorphose and still white and pale with nice and soft, is going to bring it back to the nest box and, and see the young with it. this is the male eastern blueberry. what happens to all the bodies? yeah, they decompose the bacteria, break them apart and eat them. and they become part of the soil. and they, they feed the trees that fed them right. and when they feed the trees,
6:57 am
the trees are healthy and they see this the news to cater. it's like the food is going into the cicada cycle right. this way. this is wildwood state park in waiting river new york. this is a really important place to me. this is actually where a lot of my art was inspired from. i came here with my friend, tristan, and there used to be actually a tree right in front of me that we moralize and put one of his urinary cards on. and it just so happens to have fallen down. a lot of this place has been routed. i think that coming back here now and seeing that the trees are gone really as to the morality of the art that i made and like so many things that are no longer here. i can make them live on through my artistic vision. this is a tattoo that i designed with my tattoo artists in 2015 after my friend trusts and
6:58 am
passed away. and i drew up this cicada inspired dagger knife because he really reminded me of a cicada. and every time i looked down at my arm, i can know that i shouldn't give up. and i got to dance the dance just like this. the kid is do. i think that's a reminder to everyone. metlife is sure. and we should enjoy it as much as we can while we can, because we're kind of like cicadas to life really just passes by fast and you never know how long you have. and i think it's just important to remember that life is beautiful. i use. oh oh i
6:59 am
oh i in oh, the drug started as a way to come back, a great problem. what's the one? it's part of the attitude of the nation, not just of north dakota and it got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a check and told us that andrew was competing short form. this
7:00 am
is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly, they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like that. something else had to be happening with the protests empty stadiums and cove. it infected village of athletes, not quite the opening ceremony. they were hoping for as the tokyo olympics get underway, also ahead know ben and jerry ice cream gets frozen out of israel after the company stopped sales and occupied palestinian territory economic terrorism for support for human rights . we debate the issue an american company caving in to, to, to a mob demand. they can take a moral stand and say, well,
7:01 am
i don't want to do anything with that product.
