In this episode I talk about how I had my car broken into and the valuable contents inside were stolen. I move frlom talking about the physical possessions to the psychological effects of having been violated. I also expand the discussion into talking about how this is the world into which we may see much more of this type of crime as more and more people become desperate to make ends meet.

I read listener emails and make comments based on their thoughts. A listener asks me to talk about the farmers market and I talk at length about how things are going and some of the problems I have had thus far. I expand that discussion into talking about how I am going to start giving speeches about 'intentional communities' (knowing full well that hippies from the early 1970's used that same term to describe their utopian dream-states).

This is a very unpolished and raw edition of Two Beers With Steve. I wish that I had a more polished approach to talking about topics at length, but I simply don't have the training and I don't have the time. Once the record button is hit, no matter how much I want to try to get my speaking pattersn clear, the um's and the ummm's and the ya' knows just come naturally out of my my mouth. Take my speech patterns with a grain of salt and enjoy...

Nice rows of potatoes! I have two corn pahtecs and one of them looks about like yours, but I think they'll be knee high by the 4th of July anyway. Those suckers really get growin' when the sun starts showin'! The other one is pretty amazing, but it's in a p-patch in Seattle and I think it's the heat island effect.

Ok, here is the problem As shown in the equioatn below, nitrogen oxide, NO, is common pollutant that is produced by the reaction of nitrogen and oxygen gases. Since these gases are the major components of air, nitrogen oxideresults when air is heated in furnaces, motor engine cylinders, or other high temperature combustion areas. N2 (g) + O2 (g) < => 2 NO (g)A. Given that the standard enthalpy of formation for NO2 (g) is 90.25 KJ/mole and using the absolute entropies listed below, calculate the free energy change for this reaction at 25 degrees celcius. Is this reaction product favores at 25 degrees celcius? Absolute entropiesN2 (g) 191.5 J/mol times K O2 (g) 205.0 J/mole times KNO (g) 210.7 J/mol times KB. If the reaction is not product-favored at 25 degrees celcius, determine under what conditions it would be product favored.Show ALL work.Thanks for any help I can get!
