This week on The Sea Grant Files, host Jesse Schomberg talks about research that helps us understand climate change effects Lake Superior. Climate Change is not just about hot weather, but it is a part of what the research shows when it comes to less winter ice and more summer algae productivity; measurable indicators of change.

Laura Palombi says making the use of Narcan a moral issue doesn't help anyone. 

And help is needed.  The assistant professor at the College of Pharmacy Duluth says the public health crisis that is the opiod epidemic has hit our area "really hard."

Palombi is taking part in a series of naloxone trainings for medical professionals, funded in part by a state grant aimed at  rapidly expanding treatment and recovery resources for people in hard-hit northeastern Minnesota.

But the real issue that's sparking a "frenzy of research now,"  Palombi says is "why."

The Duluth Experience

Duluth's dark past is again providing fodder for a Dark History Bus Tour this month.

October's Bright Blue Weather

When comrades seek sweet country haunts,
        By twos and twos together,
    And count like misers, hour by hour,
        October's bright blue weather.

O suns and skies and flowers of June,
        Count all your boasts together,
    Love loveth best of all the year
        October's bright blue weather.

         ~Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885)

The art of being in the "once upon a time" and in the "now" simultaneously, why you need the best of your humanity to defeat a troll, and why no Norwegian child ever wants to be called "a troll-kid."

Koda

Koda is a black and white mixed breed who is 14 years old. He came to us from a previous home and is now looking for his new loving home! Koda is a very mild mannered and easy going dog who loves everybody. He enjoys car rides, kids, strangers, and other dogs. He is an overall very happy dog who is photogenic and just wants to receive attention in the form of cuddle and pets.

He will be neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated by the time of adoption.

Green space is a term you hear bandied about when someone is talking about reintroducing elements of nature into an environment.

In a world where the President of the United States tweets that the Secretary of State is "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea, what role does diplomacy play on the world stage  - or does it have a role at all?
