Insight: Brown in China / The Ngiri Project / Hops to Table / Jazz Gitan Rerun


   
   
Brown in China California Governor Jerry Brown heads to China Monday for a week-long tour of the world's second largest economy. The governor will be seeking Chinese investment in the state and establishing a trade bridge that's been absent between the two countries for a decade.   Brown will be joined by a delegation organized by the Bay Area Council that includes approximately 75 business, economic development, investment and policy leaders from throughout California. We'll speak with the Vice President of Communications for the Bay Area Council about the goals of the delegation.

The Ngiri Project Before James Marshall discovered gold in Coloma the Sacramento Valley's vast floodplains provided ample territory for salmon and other native fish to grow big and fat. But as the years progressed settlers built levees and dams and changed the landscape of area's natural landscape. Now, scientists are experimenting with pragmatic ways to bring back fish populations devastated by human manipulation of the region's waterways. One project in particular is led by UC Davis researcher Jacob Katz, who is rearing salmon in rice fields that resemble historical floodplain conditions. Katz has just finished a six week trial and joins us to explain his preliminary results. We'll also hear from Ted Sommers, an Ecologist with California Department of Water Resources.

Hops to Table You may know about Sacramento chefs and city officials making a concerted effort to put more locally farmed food on the end of your fork. But who's working to put locally crafted beer in your pint glass? Turns out, a lot of people. There's even a new locally-produced magazine devoted to craft beer and food in the Sacramento Area. The publisher of "Hops to Table," John Zervas, joins us today with a little insight into the area's brewing scene.

Jazz Gitan If you think of gypsy music, what comes to mind? Can you combine gypsy music with jazz? Jazz Gitan bills itself as Sacramento's gypsy jazz swing trio - but it's a little more than gypsy, as they proudly celebrate the music and spirit of a gypsy, a guy named Django Reinhardt. They joined me guest host Bruce Maiman in studio last February to talk about gypsy jazz and play some music. The band will perform this Thursday at the Shady Lady in Sacramento.
