"And over at the federalist the gentleman continues rather than ask for proof of sources of income the media has been stuck in a repeating cycle of reporting about whether Joe and Joe Biden underpaid payroll taxes That's valid question but it misses the bigger picture To that end tax returns are viable investigative source documents since the days of Al Capone the rule has been clear don't ever fail to pay taxes on any income even if shady It's the easiest conviction for prosecutor So it's logical that all income will be reported and for any potentiality of the ethical or legal line an upstream S corporation would serve as the perfect mechanism to obscure it from view On a matter of this importance all possibilities must be fairly concerted until proof is established one way or another See Donald Trump's taxes are audited every single year At Biden's been Biden may have completely valid sources for all his millions And if so he should demonstrate a particularly given the evidence of foreign money flowing through his son and indirect references to him and releasing Biden's tax return last year White House press secretary Jim Paso commented that the release of the president's tax return should be expected of all presidents Shirley she would agree this means the full set of documents
Remembering FDR's 'Day of Infamy' Speech 80 Years After the Attack on Pearl Harbor
"But December 7th, after Pearl Harbor, the next day, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a armored limousine that was confiscated from the crime boss Al Capone. That was what he traveled in and they took him to Congress and he delivered an address. That address ought to be on the hearts and minds of every American today, and thanks to, well, audio tape, it is. Here's Franklin Delano Roosevelt, addressing Congress, the day after Pearl Harbor, this is from December 8th, 1941. Yesterday, December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked. By naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and at the solicitation of Japan was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking towards the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage. To American naval and military forces, I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu. As commander in chief of the army and navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense, but always will our full nation. Remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us, to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory. Thunderous ovation for Franklin Delano Roosevelt and those powerful words. I was ready to commentary by David hook stead over the daily caller who writes Japan gave us one hell of a black guy on that horrific morning, but America always gets up for a fight. Pearl Harbor was no different. As soon as we got up and dusted ourselves off, we whooped the living hell out of the Japanese empire all over the Pacific.

Supposedly joseph kennedy made huge many out of bootlegging and a lot of people made massive amounts of money. If you can just look kind suggestion and the covered and you look cigarettes and you start seeing all the sidelines popping up and alcohol so these ye made a lot of money so when that put him away they put him in a in a normal penitentiary and he took over he. He apparently had a competent sell. You could watch you saw picture of his cell. He had lamps tables yet.

Correct they line them up on a wall. Yeah i mean. They pretended to be cops. It was all very very ugly. And i think probably even the most. Let's say that the kind of people who are charmed by gangsters. And we've all watched these movies and some of these gangsters are very alluring personalities. Right and al capone was probably the biggest personality in chicago of that time or in america. Sure maybe in america and even that was not enough to save him at that point and he had to. He had to also spend a lot of time running between florida tennessee texas. He'd he'd be all over the country because he was becoming paranoid to. He thought there were probably a lot of people who are trying to kill him and he had good reason to think that you know that he would say famously would say that if castles out the tree if somebody gets killed in a car accident it's compounded it and then you'd also say if somebody who was killed in the world war get capone get capone. That's all everybody ever said. He said he said he said everybody just wants to get me for anything that goes wrong. In this world is audited. Eventually get him. It was text tax evasion.

And casey lifting great six which which standard for which is quite young and he was fourteen. Which is maybe a concern. Why did he leave because he smacked his teacher had some anger issues but teacher was a lady southern. They didn't look good days. I don't think that would go down very well either.

Pirates Of The Carolinas
"When I asked a couple of my friends from Ireland to join us on the show to talk about their country's legends of fairies and benches and things that go bump in the night. They were a little reluctant at first I thought it was because they didn't want to appear superstitious or maybe out of date. And that's what they wanted me to believe. But I wonder if they weren't just a little afraid. Coming up today on travel with Rick Steves we hear how the Irish comedy tells they grew up with very folk lurking in their surroundings in their testing their luck right now by making an exception to talk openly about it with us. We'll also explore San Francisco's legends of Ghost sightings from Al Capone on Alcatraz to a grieving mother who still wonders Golden Gate Park? Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina. Terrence Zip key is brought to life thirteen notorious pirates in her book pirates of the Carolinas. She relates stories of ships weighted down with gold crews too drunk on rum to fight treacherous colonial officials, mutineers, privateers, and the sad end of the line for the pirates who got caught. White Barents thanks for joining us. Hi, thanks for having me. Give us some background on this. What was the golden age of piracy in the United States? Well, we really don't know how long piracy's been around It's been around at least twenty, five, hundred years they are, and there was an era during its hey day that was known as the golden age piracy, and that was the light seventeenth century to early eighteenth centuries and The United States it'd be colonial America. It was colonial. America. When they came over here and Interesting Carolina had a lot of the officials had partnerships with the pirates. We were sort of commerce poor place back then. So we actually welcomed pirates like blackbeard until they had the big crack down on piracy and that was the end of that. So is it kind of the fine line between a privateer and pirate? What's the difference? It was such a fine line rick and basically a little piece of paper because a lot of the pirates started out they were privateers. And they were involved in Queen Anne's war wars all over Europe and everything, and they were commissioned to attack enemy ships in order to get money to get booty to help fund the war and they split the money with the crown. So yes. So the the king or the governor would say you are licensed to attack ships as long as they're not our ships and you p half the booty, but you gotta give the rest to us. So we can fight war whatever right and so then imagine when the war is over and your navy is no longer needed. All these men I've ever known. There's no employment. You know it was a fine line anyway between privateer and pirate. So a lot of them just became officially pirates and they got to keep everything. Nice business model. So, now, what was the basic action? It was mostly ships going from Europe to the Americas or where did they get their best opportunities at that time? That was all these merchant ships that were doing these trade routes and so you could just sort of sit out there. It was just like fishing and just block them off. They weren't very well armed or anything they were slow because they were big heavy. Ships with a lot of merchandise onboard now also, and it really didn't matter. This is one of those falsehoods that people realize people thought pirates just want gold and pieces of eight. But the truth is that they wanted what they could sell when they got these merchant ships and they had all these realms of fine linens and silks and tobacco and rum, and all this was this was pay dirt so they would. Get this stuff, and then they would go to the next port and just like you see when you travel a lot people stealing stuff off of ships and setting up a little stand and selling a cheap absolutely, and that's what they did like a lot more in partnership with the authorities here and so when they came into port and all that they would look the other way and then they would get A. Cut for looking the other way and the merchants would get discounted goods. The pilots would get money I mean everybody was happy sounds like a win win win lose situation I'm rick this is travel with Rick Steves speaking with Zip in her books called pirates of the Carolinas. We always think pirates of the Caribbean and your book is pirates of the Carolinas. Why was there so much pirate action and the Carolina? coast. Well at that time, these were pretty poor state. So we needed to get commerce wherever we could. So pirates were good for business. So we saw there were a safe haven for pirate in fact, blackbeard who was one of the probably the biggest chapter discussed in this book, he actually set up shop actually made a home and actually came part of the community and all up and north. Carolina.

"They spent a few years. Dodging the federal government moving the operation a few times to allow themselves to work outside of certain may oral jurisdictions. Eventually it started to become too costly and time consuming to keep outmanoeuvring the government and so they decided to rather make the government work for them. Money was used to bribe officials. And in the instances with this didn't work intimidation tactics soon followed on one occasion in order to install a friendly may or candidate. They went around the polling booths threatening anyone who professed to support their candidates position. Things got heated and some voters ended up being shot and killed. The police responded quickly. And it was here that al capone lost his brother frank to police gunfire torio had the business acumen and the means to run an adult operation. But he didn't have the steel nerve required to stay down the dangers that came with it in one thousand nine hundred five just five years after capone had joined him. An attempt was made on his life torio flinched and decided he'd rather retire early returning to italy and turning over the business entirely to capone. This was the chance that capone had been waiting for. He didn't do low profile and moved his headquarters permanently to an expensive suite at the downtown metropole hotel. He always had cash on hand and spent it like it never ran out and he was pretty much about that as newspapers at the time estimated that his business was generating more than one hundred million dollars each year. He was seen by the public. As an anti prohibition crusader fighting for the rights of the people he lent hard into this persona and backed it up by handing out cash on the streets leaving exorbitant tips wherever he went and at the peak of his powers he was distributing bottles of alcohol to over ten thousand bars and brothels all throughout the midwest reputation that took years to build but just months to knock down his popularity began. A rapid decline as more and more stories came out of the violence. He and his men were a part of the city. I he was implicated in the assassination of two of his sworn enemies. Who happen to be spotted. One night on capone's turf. Just a few years later capone would order his men to perpetrate the crime that he is synonymous with the saint. Valentine's day massacre one of capone's major longtime rivals was another gangster by the name of bugs moran moran had previously attempted to assassinate capone as well as toria and now was reportedly. After capone's top hitman. Machine gun jack. Begun capone and machine gun. Jack weren't about to wait around for him to find them and went on the offensive on february. The fourteenth nine hundred and twenty nine machine gun. Jack and his men dressed up as policemen and arrived at a northside garage full of bugs. Iran's men once the door was opened their guns came out and seven marantz. Men were gunned down in just a few short seconds. Bugs moran himself had arrived it was alerted to the danger. Woes still on route allowing him to change course escape unharmed. This story blew up in the news. And people sought to rapidly shift their opinions of capone and they were no longer happy to simply turn a blind eye to his criminal activities. He needed a way to get this robin hood Man of the people persona back again and he had just the way to do it. His plans were not acts of pure them however they were definitely lucrative in and of themselves but they definitely went a long way to getting the tide of public opinion to shift back into his favor. Firstly capone decided. He was going to break the back of a he called. Chicago's most cartel. The milk industry in the midwest was rigidly structured and very carefully controlled by a select group of people. No dairy business could be conducted without approval from the all powerful moke. Union capone didn't like that his fellow chicagoans being charged inflated prices for what was essentially a household staple that and the fact that he realized there was a lot of money to be made taking power away from the union. A plan was quickly. Put into place to source. By and ship cheaper wisconsin milk into chicago in glass-lined milk trucks bottle at once. It reached the city bypassing the fixed dairy prices and undercutting the existing market. The union wasn't happy about al capone and muscling in on their territory and try to threaten him to stop. But as i'm sure you can imagine threatening capone was very silly thing to do. Within a few days capone had ordered that the union's president be kidnapped after holding him for a few days. He was released a sizable ransom was paid and in what is a genius double slap in the face. Capone turned around and use the ransom money to buy up the biggest dairy that supplied the milk cartel on any given day.

Yep, but I don't like to be bored. No, Liz, we would never. We never knew that about you. Well, they'll tell you, you'll learn some new balmy everyday. That's true. You reading any new books recently that Well, I haven't had some audio tapes for a couple weeks now because of what's happening on the With the post offices, so I helped him to get some for the next day or two. So if you need how it like, if if it keeps happening if you don't get books in a little while, let us know Well, we know people who know people who read so we can get for you. Well, so far so good. But I do you know what frustrates me with all the things that are happening with the post office on the shenanigans going on? I just.
Jay Beever, Embraer, and Designing Luxury
"Jay. You're an interesting guy because your proof that talent and innovation can cross pollinate different professional fields. But let's start at the beginning talk about cars. Where'd you start such a fun story? I. Think there is something that can benefit a lot of people because sometimes we have a mentality that we can't do something if we're not trained or degreed in a certain skill set in that regard I always had a dream of being a car designer automotive designer it started because of my own Ed Richter and his wife k they own studebaker. Rare student bakers like the Rock, any Newt Rodney the famous Nordic football coach and that particular studebaker in thirty two and thirty three head a version with a rumble seat. The back of the seat would open up and you can sit back there. Well, he owns one original condition. They still drive it to this day and I remember as a child going to their home and peaking in the garage and not only was the rock. Ni there. But hiding around the corner three cars wide a commander in another student bigger from thirty three in disheveled but yet al capone gangster looking. Need to be restored in the Shadows Bee's, and it was inspiring and he has since restored that commanders well, beautiful cars that led to a journey of understanding Raymond lowy and his influence with the star liner and and everything else that he did outside of automotive everything from the coke bottle two steamships, the example of cross industry designed capability, and how they can learn from each other. So those automobiles and being so enthralled with the shapes and forms and the mysterious nature of them. Of course, because they are stuck in a garage was always a thrill being in the big three capital. Detroit suburbs knowing some ankles at work for the car companies and my mother worked for crain communications and she was a key line artists which was related graphic design page layout for making magazines back before digital publishing back when we had use razor blades and wax I've got some razor blades stories she would come home that's the articles in the early days of graphic storytelling, pie charts, and that stuff before the Mac really did it well, for us I got to watch all that and it was all related automotive interesting thing was like billing model airplanes World War Two model airplanes. Give me a B seventeen, b twenty, nine, b twenty, four I would recommend them get another kit and build it again, sometimes melt holes in the side of the single to a bottom of. So aerospace was like the carnal thing inside waiting to come out, but it was going to be cars. So I did I ended up in the car business I used to take my mom's take from those key lining page layout days with exacto blades in Pinstripe, my nine hundred and fifty seven Chevy matchbox car, and that was six years old playing with exacto blades if you can imagine that. Better than matches I guess. But maybe not much. Those, always stayed with me. So from graphics, you can make something look different to designing a car. All of this is really about transportation design being thrilled with things that move. So that was kind of the start of it, but I couldn't afford Zion College I would have loved to have gone to CCS, I spent a couple of summer classes in graphic in other types of designs like pottery, Constanza, pottery as. A kid but it's learning POW powdery Auto Detroit on the why am I being exposed to this? But then there's incredible community college in mccomb county they're outside Detroit and they had a great drafting program. My opportunity to get into the big three was through drafting go. This is great. Fell in love with in high school, and now I can have a career doing this. So went into drafting CAD design hired. At Ford, Motor Company in Nineteen ninety-three as an intern doing cad purity aided design drafting and three D. modelling, and that's when that stuff was really just coming on board it used to be guys had to draw. So you were at the forefront of that new technology in many ways going back to the drawing real quick I think the thing that helps the most even to this day is understanding what A. French curve can do and a large spine. One of my projects at the college was to create an body car, GM car body side, and three different views, projecting the points in three different orthographic views and make the arc continuously perfectly smooth accelerated curves were necessary in all of us so that you could inevitably put that on aluminum plates that was a hard way to go but it was fun. So then. We get into Ford and they had their own homegrown computer system called the PG S and that was done on these lundy tubes that were tube TV's really with light pens and we stroke the light pens on the screen and rotate things around, and there's a little keyboard tracking our time talk about ours disappear quickly when you're building things I couldn't have thought I could of ended in a better career exam. Making something from nothing into three D. and having it show up on the road someday. So I really liked that approach to design design engineering though I hadn't had the opportunity to actual industrial designer transportation design school like you'd find in Pasadena Arts Center or
How One Block Got Through It
"Over the past five months small businesses in America have been undergoing a mass extinction event. Bars are closed restaurants or half empty and retail is shuttered. Full blocks are slipping away. I wanted a sense of how this is playing out in the city I live in. CHICAGO. Not The one off story of a beloved are not the frightening toll in national statistics I wanted the story of one block. So I went to seventy fifth street in the Chatham neighborhood in the heart of Chicago outside. This. Part of the South side is really pretty. There are huge street trees flowers on the steps of the bungalows brick two flats al capone used to live in one of them. Many corners have signs from block looks setting the rules of the road. No loud music no car repair watch out for children playing. Even middle class parts of the side commercial corridors have struggled. redlining big box stores, job loss and black flight have left them full of vacancies. There are signs for businesses that have been gone. So long their phone numbers don't have area codes signs for furniture stores, nurseries, food markets, stores that sold beepers. which is what has long made this stretch of seventy fifth street, just east of South, Michigan, Avenue Standout, and what makes it stand out? Even during the pandemic. There's a handful of hair salons and barbershops. There's a dentist and a daycare. There's a cycling Ju. We're one day I visit. The DJ is wheeling bikes onto the sidewalk for afternoon classes. A little bit nervous, south. Arm. Being. There is a cult favorite, vegetarian joint Zoll Veg, which always has a line inside and if famous barbecue joint limbs, which always has a line outside. Large To dry cleaners where the pressed uniforms of Chicago police and transit workers hang under plastic and a Taylor who says online ordering suits him just fine. To never going to stop because you combat it fit to perfect. You're going to need some ultra and that's why. There's a deli run by an ex COP. I went there cover in plain clothes they know who I was and I got to a fight. So, as may have started the fight, my gun thought of mine waste and me and a guy is literally fighting for this pistol. There's a bakery, a frame shop and Francis Cocktail Lounge. The Bar has been here since December thirty first nineteen, sixty five muhammed leads to drop by Michael Jordan too. So we are the Regal. Beagle. You don't know three's company. So a lot of people, it is the neighborhood where everybody knows your name and we're able to have people come out and have cocktails on the front. So that has really seemed to. Help us excuse me you got to mass. Need, you have on the bads. Jada Wilson turnball runs the place with her cousin who's mother founded it. If you can't tell, she used to be an assistant principal at a Chicago Public School can't you put on your mask plays. Thank you. So, much. Appreciate you. Working with children really got me ready for this. One reason I picked this stretch of seventy fifth street was because it seemed on paper like exactly the kind of place that would have struggled to get through the pandemic stretch of black owned family businesses in a city that has been hit hard by. COVID. Nineteen. But what I found was not what I expected. Mid July virtually every business on seventy fifth street had reopened after the initial shutdown. Some were just getting by, but many of them said in spite of everything that they were doing. Great. I'm Henry Bar and this is the final episode in our series on the future of the during and after covid nineteen. Today, on the show, one block on Chicago's south side tries to get through the storm.

Okay my Al Capone Museum Dot Com and Mario we kinda started correspondent recently.

Because I like to be entertained by those movies too. I just also like to know that may not be the true story and I do like finding the true story and Mario has has made a career. So Mario's coming to us from Montreal. Canada you might note a little bit of an accent But Maria Welcome. Thank you very much. I appreciate Hello Common. Hello Gary here rather you guys on Youtube you're getting knows. We all have a variety of hats on now cam has usual. Snap bring look like a gangster. They used to follow around. The they lacked those hats. Like that. And and Mario's guys capone day. I've got my more period Bowler hat on. I'll said on it. A jonty angle. Sure John Angle you know and today and today's a special day to day what is that. It's one hundred year anniversary. That big Jim Colosio was shot. Down in. Chicago is really yeah. That was kind of the the end of the old. The old school and the beginning of the new schools right. That's that's when of the man. Yes Torio and that was one at the myths that's that's that's currently always talked about even in books today that Al Capone was part of that murder which he was not at all. He wasn't even in Chicago that time. A really So it was Johnny Toro. Then he was guy he was the one that took in capone so he was ahead of capone. Yes because funny enough. We can find out from newspaper clippings in the Social Section of the Brooklyn newspaper that Johnny. To`real was meeting up with Frankie Yale and Robert Vanilla two weeks before Cosima was murdered. So Yeah Oreo is hiring. Frankie yelled tacoma onto Chicago and nil. Nil Yeah Yeah I was I. There was Frankie. Was the guy back then. Such an interesting connection that Chicago New York connection that you don't really hear much talked about how Frankie Yale was kind of Al Capone's and send about to To Chicago and and he gets you start in Chicago. And he's connected very closely to New York because of that but then alka prone. Kinda shuffles off the the Yale Coil. Shall we say and and ends up actually being responsible for his murder in the end? So it's It's a really interesting little Series of events over the to New York and Chicago. Sure had a guy do a a little video for me. I think it's funny as heck. I put it down on facebook. And and he makes fun of New York and And so in a low thanks John Gotti and and talks about how great Chicago's all business. And and new. York's all play Larry as I don't know folks I'll put that up again whether these days. You gotTA search my timeline. But it is hilarious. My friend been Alexan- from Chicago. Made that up. He's got he's got a voiceover for Gatti's survey shot and got his complaining about having to use some kind of special bounce to to help them when he watches these close to maintain that the Teflon so Eddie L. Let's get back to Capone Mary. Oh we don't WANNA get too far astray. They're just tell a wire-tappers out there just a little bit about how you got into that and what you've got going today. Well it started back when I was a youngster. I remember watching the untouchables Roberts back like and white. Tv Show and Fast forward to nineteen eighty seven. I saw trailer on. Tv for a new movie. A remake of the untouchables with Kevin. Costner and Robert Deniro so I said I'm going to check this out. Yeah I gotTA check this out so to really absorb the movie. I like to go by myself so that no one's talking to me and I could really absorb what's going on. There's nothing worse than people didn't just say what I do the same thing I love to go to movies. If it's an important movie to me I go by myself. That's right so alone. I watch completely absorbed Koponen there's only a few scenes but my God what he showed. Robert De Niro showed me about capone was like this is a really intense person. I gotta find out about the real guy. So the next day I went to a library. Picked up a book called the bootleggers. By Kenneth also I studied it and I found the really interesting. The characters are much more interesting than what I saw on the screen and also I noticed that a lot of the stuff was made up in Hollywood so then I bought another book and then I read that and that contradicted that book and then Cross referencing and thirty three years later here. I have with a website and tons and tons of information about capone. That's a great one and it's easy to navigate to started with one page act in the year. Two thousand twenty two hundred fifty pages under web pages. I've been to your website through the years. I mean it's it's phenomenal the information you have on there. It is just just incredible. What you've been able to gather in the documents and what you've been able to put up and put together I really. There's there's nothing like it on there just for compiling information like you said he just online actual museum you. Can you can visit like you're saying your and your and your underpants like say I appreciate that because a lot of people do email and only get positive stuff. I get like five. You have no life but I'm passionate about what I do. You are absolutely funny enough. I got a guy yesterday. was doing a youtube story on. Al Capone Professional Youtube Story. Any he asked for photos and Al Capone and I said listen I WanNa know what am I signing up for? What's it about? I don't want my name tied to something that the information is all incorrect. Which happens quite often. Yeah so he showed me a bit of the script and I saw that it was all wrong. Lot of mistakes repeated. Miss I told them I don. I don't want to participate because there's errors in here. You know what he answered me you said. Oh well all our our info is verified by a PhD Historian. One of those things that are wrong in their has been maintained for many many years. And I'm going to divulge this week. I'm going to invalid on my website. But you're the first one to hear about it. was off capone except the story was that he was slashed back in the summer of nineteen seventeen at the Harvard. In right now you know the story. He said to a woman that she had a nice posterior. Frankie GEICO went nuts. Well now I just found out from uncovering certain documents. That ALC- opponent wasn't slashed. At all of the Harvard in it happened on Fourth Street and Union Union Street and Fourth Avenue. Excuse me and Frankie. Gallucci lived about hundred ninety feet from that area. Capone live about maybe five minutes from that area so they cross pass at that place. Also harbored in was at Coney Island. We know that. Coney Island from May to September was closed. Most of the IT's wintertime show only club. That's open is starches. Which is publicized in the newspaper as being open all year round but the Harvard and was just a small club and couldn't afford to be open. Also I found out that AL capone cut stitched up at the Methodist Episcopal Hospital. And that's about five minutes from where that slashing happened really. Why would someone gets slashed at Coney Island which is like about two hours away and go to a hustle? Two hours away mix no south coney island makes better straight and that's issued. I love that. That's really incredible. Bravo as good. It's just easier stores. They won't Coney Island that is it's New York. It's boom get storing. That's Bravo. Now people will say well. What proof do you have? Well we have a Brooklyn newspaper that mentions it. December ninth nine thousand nine hundred eighteen that the night before. Alphonse capone is attacked by two guys and slash to the face here we go summer summer of nineteen you seventeen. I don't think so. Yeah that that's what we call primary source Anything is written just about the time in public documents. Written about the time that an event happen you can pretty. Well call that primary source. And that's what that's the gold standard for these kinds of Of his this rare historical research. Yeah I mean that's that's how it's done very very well. Well done and Franken. Gallucci supposedly met up with a historian. Author named William Balsamo. Okay so by. Samo supposedly met him in nineteen sixty five at length does bar to ask him about the slashing and he made him promise that. I'll tell you the story but you promise me that you won't publish it until I'm dead so also agreed. And now we find out with what I discovered that what Gallucci was selling Bossano. Like lies because you stating that. He had a little sister named Lena. Will I did the research? The census shows that the Gallucci had no little sister. He had two older sisters one named Theresa and one name. So there you go there you go for people but I I. That's what I like. That's Gary will tell you that that had research that digging those those details that are overlooked. That's and nobody through. The years is ever verify that story. I've Read I've read the excerpt. Gosh you gotta you gotTa swear to me. You won't repeat this story to anybody. I still know these guys and Blah Blah Blah. You know we've all read that episode. That's where it's done. It's a lot of work though it and Mario you gotta go to all those guys. It is different sources. GotTa have not only the time but sometimes you you like you have to have a paid subscription newspapers dot com sometimes to get the good stuff that which is the cheap one. I. That's what I've had for a long time now. I can get it through my library. Which is pretty good. But you're maybe after the subscription ancestry dot.
Pirate Myths and Mysteries
"And for the next week or so. I will be focusing on tyrus during the Golden Age from sixteen fifty to about seventeen thirty and in my ongoing research for these podcasts. I have had a few surprises one. Pirates DID BURIED TREASURE TO PIRATES. Made MAPS FOR THOSE TREASURE. I will be producing evidence of this also. Pirates did make other pirates and English Spanish ship captains walk the plank pick up any book on the Golden Age Pirates. Sixteen fifty to seventeen thirty and it would have you believe that they sailed the Atlantic but in fact when the English began actively pursuing what they call privateers and hanging entire crews many fled attempting to sail around Cape Horn. The southernmost tip of South America but few survived where the Atlantic and Pacific collided strong winds large waves unpredictable current and icebergs challenge every vessel. Pirates formed egalitarian. Orders based on elected officials and mutual trust. They did make some crews of captured vessels walk the plank in eighteen twenty two captain of the British ship. Rudd poll was made to walk the plank when his ship was captured by the pirate ship. Emmanuel before turning himself in Captain Kidd buried his treasure somewhere on long island also around area will discuss Madagascar. He was hanged for piracy in London before it could retrieve it for two hundred years. Fifteen sixty five to eighteen fifteen. The Spanish Treasury Cross Pacific from Alka Poco laden with gold and silver had been caravan across the isthmus there from there. They sailed to new Spain at the time Manila unchallenged until sixteen ninety nine. It was late in that year. That the five masted pirate ship made the run around Cape Hope captain by check Berryman. The Spanish treasure galleon left behind by the rest of the Spanish fleet was just ten days out of port of Al Capone sailing. Lazy five knots for Manila when they were intercepted by another vessel when the peach pulled within five hundred yards of the Galleon and unfurled the Jolly Roger and fired. Twenty two cannon on the heavily Laden. Gallia well that was all it took without hesitation. Captain Fernandez de the Tinian unloaded his sixteen cannons in response and beat a hasty retreat up the coast of North America. No Vashem's speed for the gold. Silver she carried the San. Jose couldn't lose the peach. A Jose carried eighty pounds of gold twenty-six tons of unkown silver and four hundred thousand pesos. For ten days with a damaged rudder Santellien led the peach on a wild chase up. The coast of North America finally anchoring off a rugged coast the captain of peach saw his chance sailed to within a hundred yards the guy and for best effect of short range cannons and let fire twenty two guns in a final show of defiance. The San Jose unleashed her sixteen cannons. And by chance hit the powder storage of the each flowing. This ship to splitters but it was too late for the San Jose sinking by the Stern. Captain gathered the ship's log and perched on the bow made his final entry dated January. Seventeen O one. Half of his crew sixty were lost in the final battle. The remains managed to wrath from the decade paddle to the surging forty degree water toward shore with the sun high overhead. The Sea retreated leaving the San Jose on Solid C.

Spruce forest dropped twenty five feet during that quake justice shifting place of pushed. What's left of that forced to the surface? A fascinating side at low tide. Perhaps in a few years if the place continued shift the remains of the treasure. Galleon San Jose may appear on that same
Kingpins Daily: Eliot Ness
"Times but in his nineteen fifty. Seven book the untouchables. Ness reveals a more vulnerable side of himself. One that suggests that even the most by the book offices questioned the very rules they enforce. He wrote doubts race through my mind as I consider the feasibility of enforcing which the majority of honest citizens didn't seem to want the law of at Ness was referring to was the eighteenth amendment to the United States Constitution. I ratified in January. Nineteen nineteen it banned the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors and incited the prohibition era for those unfamiliar. It's important to note that Americans didn't just wake up with a hangover and empty liquor cabinets. They had the opportunity to prepare for prohibition and prepare they did many acted like Frat boys before a big snowstorm. They hoarded alcohol. And why shouldn't they? There was absolutely no promise that the storm of prohibition was going to pass any time soon. In fact they were politicians. Like Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas essentially telling people the pigs would fly before it ended. Needless to say there were stockpiles of liquor everywhere and by everywhere we mean in the cellars of those who could afford it. How were they able to purchase these now? Illicit goods simple the eighteenth amendment was poorly written as we said it banned quote the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors. It failed to mention whether alcohol was illegal to consume and it didn't define what in the good hell intoxicating meant so without parameters to enforce any law. Authorities like Eliot Ness. We're left twiddling their thumbs. Enter the VOL- Stead Act in nineteen twenty it defined intoxicating liquors any substance containing point five percent alcohol or more for perspective. That's one tenth. The average can of beer of course higher proof substances could still be manufactured and sold for practical applications like medicine cleaning and religious sacraments e there were loopholes and whether loopholes there are people abusing said loopholes for profit. Which is exactly what happened. The reason prohibition caused mind speakeasy as Pianos flappers and booze is because alcohol didn't go anywhere. In fact during prohibition consumption increased by an estimated sixty to seventy percent it just moved from the free market to the black market from being a stable of the American home to being. Contraband as it did. The line between crime and leisure became incredibly blurred which led to some very lucrative and suddenly criminal enterprises. Elliott's ness the man in charge of enforcing prohibition laws in all this mess in Chicago. No less the home of notorious mob. Boston bootlegger Al Capone Aka scarface. Ness worked for the Prohibition Bureau from Nineteen Twenty Six all the way to the end of prohibition in Nineteen Thirty Three. In that time he was surrounded. By other prohibition who were accepting bribes in exchange for turning a blind eye to these illegal operations. Everyone was getting rich and they use this new ethical gray scale to justify their actions. It was after all just alcohol. Who is it hurting? Really like said the majority of honest citizens didn't even want the law ness wasn't the delusion that any person who chose to imbibe where criminals but at the same time there were men like Al Capone men who were undoubtedly criminals and from between those two extremes sprung doubt and the fact. That ness had doubts is important. It's a shame that history frequently ignores that chapter of his story too often. He's relegated to a trope. The unflinching leader of the untouchables. A team of agents that upheld the law at all costs but the truth is much more complicated than that. What misunderstood was the good and bad can exist on both sides of the law. Yes Eliot Ness would one day help take down. Al Capone a man responsible for the deaths of many innocent lives. But prohibition had more victims than those men victims whose stories are often forgotten the poor the ones that we're most held accountable by the laws of prohibition simply because

You're was to prove a major setback. For an unassailable gangster mix Wigan was mistakenly shot and killed by capone's henchmen during a shootout out between rivals outside a bar. Capone was blamed but once again due to lack of evidence he escaped arrest however the murder was followed to buy a big outcry against gangster violence and public cinnamon went against capone high profile investigations against capone capone failed. The police therefore took their frustrations out by constantly reading his whore houses in gambling. Dinh's capone went into hiding mm for three months during the summer but eventually he took a huge risk and gave himself up to the Chicago police. It proved to be the right decision as the authorities. Authorities did not have much evidence to charge him. Capone was once again a free man. Having made a mockery of the police and justice justice system. Ironically capone took on the role of peacemaker appealing to the other gangsters to tone down the violence. He even managed to broker an amnesty between rival gangsters and for two months. The killing and violence ceased but Chicago is firmly in the grip of gangsters and capone own appeared beyond the reach of the law. Soon infighting between rival gangsters escalated into street violence and frequent hijackings. Jacking of Capone's Whiskey transports became a big problem. One major thorn in the side of capone was Yale. Wants a powerful associate. He he was now seen as the main instigator of disruptions to capone's Whiskey business one Sunday afternoon Yale met his end with the first use of Tommy Armie gun against him. Capone also had to deal with rival gangster bugs Moran and his North siders gang who had been a threat for for years Moran had even once tried to kill capone's colleague and friend Jack mcgurn the decision by capone and mcgurn to avail themselves of Moran was to lead to one of the most infamous gangland massacres history. The Saint Valentine's Day massacre the one we all all know and have heard about exactly on Thursday February Fourteenth Nineteen Twenty nine at ten thirty in the morning morning Moran and his gang were lured by a bootlegger into a garage by Whiskey. mcgurn men would be waiting for them. Dressed in stolen police jason reforms. The idea being that they would stage a fake raid. mcgurn like capone made sure he was far away and checked into a hotel with his girlfriend when mcgurn men thought they saw Moran. They got into their police uniforms in drove over the garage in a stolen police car the bootleggers caught in the act lined up against the wall. mcgurn is men took the bootleggers guns and opened fire with two machine guns. All the men except Frank Duesenberg were killed outright in cold blood. The plane appeared to go brilliantly family except for one major detail Moran was not among the Dead Moran had seen the police car and took off not wanting to be caught up in the raid read. Even though capone was conveniently in Florida. The police in the newspapers knew who had staged the massacre Saint Valentine's Day massacre Kerr became a national media. Event immortalizing capone as the most ruthless geared smartest an elegant of gangland bosses even then while powerful forces were amassing against him. Capone indulged in one. Last Balletti Act of revenge the killing of two Sicilian colleagues whom he believed I had betrayed him capone invited his victims to a sumptuous banquet where he brutally pulverize them with a baseball bat. Capone had observed the whole tradition of wining and dining traders before executing them somewhat ironically. It was the pin pushers from the tax office. Who was deposed? The greatest threat to the gangsters bootlegging empires in May nineteen twenty seven. The Supreme Court. Ruled that a bootlegger had to pay the income tax on his illegal bootlegging business with such a ruling. It wasn't long before the small Special Intelligence Unit of the IRS. Under ELMORE IRA was able to go after Capone I love that the irs contracts and illegal business. I mean how do they know if they're paying in their taxes right. I mean it's illegal. Exact business itself is not gonNA report on. It just kills me but apparently it worked. I guess so. So capone left for Miami with his wife and son bought Palm Island state property that he immediately mmediately started to renovate expensively. This gave Elmer Iryh his chance to document. Capone's income and spending but capone was colaver every transaction. He made was on a cash basis. The only exception was the tangible assets of the palm island state which was evidence of a major source of income eventually capone's activities including the Valentine's Day massacre attracted the attention of President Berber Hoover in March nineteen twenty nine. Hoover asked Andrew Mellon his secretary of the Treasury. Have you got this fellow fellow capone yet. I want that man in jail. Millen set out to get the necessary evidence to prove income tax evasion and to amass enough evidence dents to prosecute capone successfully for prohibition violations Eliot Ness a dynamic young agent with the US Prohibition Bureau was charged with gathering the evidence of prohibition violations. He assembled a team of daring. Young men and made extensive use of wiretapping technology. While there was a doubt that capone could be successfully prosecuted for prohibition violations in Chicago the government was certain it could get capone on tax evasion in May nineteen twenty. Nine capone went to a gangster conference in Atlantic city afterward. He saw a movie in Philadelphia when leaving the cinema. He was arrested and imprisoned for carrying a concealed weapon. Capone was incarcerated in the eastern penetentiary. Three where he stayed until March sixteenth. Nineteen thirty he was later released from jail for good behavior. But was put on America's most wanted blissed which publicly humiliated mobster who so desperately wanted to be regarded as a worthy man of the people. I find it really interesting. That what got him was carrying a concealed weapon right after everything. He did not even tax evasion. Not The tax evasion just concealed carry so crazy yeah elmer iryh undertook a cunning plan to use undercover agents posing as hoods and Veltri Capone's organization. The operation took nerves of steel my friends despite informer ending up with a bullet in said before he could testify. Elmar managed to amass enough evidence through his detectives posing US gangsters to try capone opponent in front of a jury with two vital bookkeepers. Leslie Shiwei and Fred Reese who had once been in Capone's employment now safely under our police protection. It was only a matter of time before capone's days as public enemy number one were over. Agent S S. angered by capone for the murder of a friend managed to enrage capone by exposing prohibition violations to ruin his bootlegging industry. Millions ends of dollars of brewing equipment were seized or destroyed thousands of gallons of beer and alcohol had been dumped and the largest breweries or closed a march thirteenth. Nineteen thirty one. A federal grand jury met secretly on the government's claim that in nineteen twenty four. Al Capone had a tax liability of thirty two thousand four hundred eighty eight dollars and eighty one cents. The jury returned an indictment against capone. That was kept secret until the investigation was complete for the years. Nineteen Twenty five to nineteen twenty nine and just so you guys snow if we were to put that into the inflation calculator that is equivalent to five hundred forty eight thousand eight hundred and two dollars today. Jesus that's a lot of money I mean. I wouldn't mind having that money me either but I wouldn't be taxed liable the grand jury later returned. An indictment against capone with twenty two counts of tax evasion totaling over two hundred thousand dollars. Capone and sixty eight members of his gang were charged with five thousand separate violations of the Vol- Stead Act. These income tax cases took precedent. Over the prohibition violations fearing that witnesses would be tampered with having doubts that the six year statute of limitations would be upheld by the Supreme Court. Ah Deal with secretly struck between Capone's lawyers and government. Prosecutors Capone was was to plead guilty to a lighter charge and would receive a sentence of between two and five years when word got out. The press was outraged outraged and campaigned against what they saw as a blatant whitewash. The overconfident capone who believed he would receive less than five years years in prison. became less cocky when he realized that his plea bargain was now known in Boyd on October. Sixth Nineteen thirty he won fourteen. Detectives escorted capone the Federal Court building. He was dressed in a conservative blue serge suit and was is without his usual. Pinky ring.

Seventeen the exact day not the year but the day but the day that's wonderful you know. I just remembered that that's so cool. I know basically the same person GRANDPA. Hey many New York gangsters in the Early Twentieth Century three kings from impoverished backgrounds. But this was not the case for capone far from being a poor immigrant from Italy who turned to crime to make a living capone was actually from a respectable and professional family. His Father Gabriel was one of thousands of Italians who arrived in New York in eighteen ninety four. He was thirty years old educated and from Naples where he had earned a living as a barber. His wife Theresa was pregnant and already bringing up two sons. John's two year old son Vincenzo. An infant son Rafael the capone family lived near the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It was a tough place. Given given over to the FFICES sought by sailor characters that frequented the surrounding bars. The family was a regular law-abiding albeit noisy Italian American and clan and there were few indications that the young capone would venture into a world of crime and become public enemy number one. Certainly the families move to a more ethnically mixed area of the city exposed the young capone to wider cultural influences. No doubt equipping him him with the means to run a notorious criminal empire but it was capone schooling both inadequate and brutal at a Catholic institution be set within violence. That marred impressionable young man. Despite having been a promising student he was expelled at the age of fourteen for hitting a female teacher and he never went back at age. Fourteen capone met the gangster. Johnny Torio which would prove the greatest influence on the would be gangland.

He still insisted on being unarmed as a mark of his status but but he never went anywhere without at least two bodyguards and it was even sandwiched between bodyguards. When traveling by car he preferred to travel under the cover of night risking travel by day? Only when absolutely necessary with his business acumen became Toro's partner and took over a manager manager of the four deuces trio's headquarters in Chicago's Levee area. The four deuces served as a speakeasy gambling joy. Wait and whorehouse under one roof. Lots of hats. That is a lot of hats A crackdown on tyring in Chicago meant that Capone's I mobster job was to move operations to Cicero Illinois with the assistance of his brothers. Frank Salvatore Salvador and Ralph Capone infiltrated the government and police departments between them.

"Capone's accountant remember Al Capone wouldn't have gone to jail if it wasn't for the meticulous accounting records that his accountant did there was it was all under coding and nobody wanted him to testify I well I should say the good guys wanted him to testify the bad guys even the bad guys in the police did everything they could to make sure he never testified Al Capone wanted him any place but on the witness stand because he was the only guy that could crack open all of it now he didn't want to testify against Al Capone he knew what that meant he's probably a dead man he didn't want to do it it wasn't necessarily on the side of the good guys but they finally got him to court and he testified but Al Capone never would have put his accountant forward right they they the Democrats you know I mean they want to shift was involved in this before hand they highlighted this guy as the whistle blower and if he's the guy that unravels all this why would they want to promote his profile why do people do stupid it's really stupid things cut congressional immunity is a good or a band aid on back and in passion when you are so when your only goal is destroyed destroying destroys made any cost destroy them when your passion is that high you make stupid mistakes why would Al Capone keep a detailed accounting record of who he was bribing how it was go out money going here to there why would you keep that in paper I am a I airlines yeah but I mean there's actually running a business right there's a reason is always ready and see yeah no I I agree so the DNC but like you could have easily instead of doing a whistle blower report to get this whole thing kicked off you could have lied to to the New York times and had them read article about this call and you would have had the ball rolling in that way that you all could been out public should probably we need these transcripts above all you've done all of that yes but you needed somebody to lodge the complaint with standing remember that's the whole whistleblower thing you have to logic with standing for a whistleblower complaint but I mean to get an impeachment done you you could have started this with a media report easily it could have brain but the whole idea is the whole idea with the Democrats has banned get somebody on the inside it's somebody who's on the inside there around him the whole time he's crazy he's dangerous that was that was part of this there's there's this guy he's I mean he's a career diplomat he's been around forever he's just a guy in the White House he was part of that phone call he heard it he was so upset about it and he's been here and other people that were so upset Wheeler weren't really necessarily a lot of people that were really upset they were on the phone call that you know he didn't even say there was quid pro quo when he first wrote his account there was no mention of quid pro quo until we met with Adam Schiff but let's let's let's back up for a second this guy I believe he is in danger but I believe that the Democrats have been saying this look he was the guy until five days after our chalkboard no I'm not I'm not suggesting to you that it that definitely is what did it but I do believe because I know everyone on Capitol Hill was talking about that chalkboard within the first couple of days of that chalkboard being out okay they watched it is groups so that got out what do they have this guy is center he was a missing piece that we didn't even know existed and if you remember we did the chalkboard five days later they're like don't worry about this guy yeah this guy might have political collection connection so don't you worry about this guy this guy we got another guy yeah I remember that and they just try to brush him off and bury him and I you said on the air who cares about another whistle blower we have the transcripts right but once you know the name of this guy and you can do your homework and see where he was position he's the smoking gun he is the smoking gun he's the guy in the center of all of this it even goes back to before the the inauguration his attorney now he was his attorney is the guy who in twenty seventeen not your aeration he starts talking about how trump has got to go is soon as in July of twenty seventeen he says I predict CNN is going to play a key role in the real Donald Trump not finishing out his first term as president we'll get rid of him and and this country is strong enough to survive him and even his supporters AS one falls meaning as as one person leaves the White House that is not on the side of Donald Trump as one falls to more will take their place he promised that a coup would occur in many steps the coup has though this is this is the at the whistle blowers attorney in twenty seventeen look has started first of many steps rebellion impeachment will follow ultimately the terrible attorney why would you be publicly tweeting these things will be later on because he said he tweeted this soon as the president took office he tweeted that C. I. A. employees should come to his law firm to lawfully challenge the new president so he was recruiting C. I. A. agents is like a the guy with the mess of the Leona commercial as well yeah do you have would you like to impeach this president we can help okay so that's who this guy is he's calling for CIA agents to come into his office who want to help get this president impeached that's AB and now you're radiation now the whistle blower happens to be a CIA agent he happens to be the guy who is that Joe Biden's side he's the guy who was in the oval office when Barack Obama was calling in all of the investigators in to Washington from Ukraine and having a very awkward meeting that even the good guy prosecutors all said was really weird basically they called us into Washington to see if we can help them find dirt on Donald Trump he was the guy who is at the embassy helping Chiluba he's in the White House organizing things with Chiluba this is the woman who was the one that coordinated and did all of the trump investigation who was the go between it appears between the Ukrainians and the fusion GPS and it's also a fried flour tortilla wrapped around each night sour cream let us write us right so now so now this is just a this is just a coincidence that he was you know that he was involved with all of these people it's a coincidence that he his attorney is talking about a coup and taking them out and plotting an impeachment it's also a coincidence that the day after Robert Muller is it closes his case and says there's nothing here the guy comes out and says I I've got a concern but doesn't say quid pro quo says I I'm gonna have a concern about a phone call really that's wow that's interesting and they immediately shift gears from molar to this guy he goes to Adam Schiff and then all of a sudden he has an attorney guess who shift sends him to this guy he now has an attorney and he includes quid quid pro quo and that's really the all of that is just a coincidence it's I mean I have a blow your mind here I don't think it is I yeah I mean I know it's weird it's almost as if they had a I mean I is there a doubt at this point that there are large amounts of people working not only for the left and Democrats but also just in the state department and other places in the government whose entire goal since Donald Trump took president was to make him not president anymore but I I don't because it really a doubt on that at all no right I mean like that's no clearly true and they you know they would probably say well we did a perk because of good reasons he was doing things that were a radic for the country and bad for the country blah blah blah okay whatever you can believe that if you want however the guy was elected president United States decoration trolls these things and if he controls these things it's your job to either support them or resign unless you believe something illegal is going on which some of them say there was an age did this whistleblower thing all that is fine but it's all inside of an obvious structure and movement within the government and within the Democratic Party to get this guy removed from office the second he was elected and that is you know that is a that's a good it's an undercurrent that can't be ignored so this whistle blower it is it is critical that this whistleblower makes it to open the witness stand and the cross examination is prepared to ask him about all of the things that he was doing in Ukraine because he's the Lynch pin he's the go between on all of these things on fusion GPS on the Joe Biden corruption on on all of it she is the accountant now the press I've never seen anything like it and it fell weird at the time as soon as they started talking about this whistle blower and they said well who is the whistle blower the minute that question was asked you're gonna get him killed you're gonna get him killed wait we're just wondering who he is you're gonna get him killed you're gonna get him killed you're gonna get killed you're gonna get him killed well now I know why this guy is more dangerous to the DNC then then Jeffrey Epstein if this guy is in protected not from the right but from the left this guy's gonna end up paying it himself with paper sheets while in custody this guy is the buried the body he knows all of it he's the tie between all of it he is the key to the massive corruption of the DNC and I don't think anybody wants to get into that now there there again saying that Donald Trump junior outed him and so Donald Trump junior is gonna get him killed believe me everyone on the right wants him to testify when you don't know his name and you see the connections and you watch Star special on Ukraine you know he's the most important person to put on the stand you want him alive you want him to testify I want him under protection of the Republicans not the Democrats because this guy knows where all the bodies are buried and if this guy testifies you're going to be able to pull his testimony apart and you'll see what's really going on and believe me believe me next Wednesday a week from yesterday we're gonna go through what's really going on what really happened in Ukraine we thought we knew no it's much worse than that it's much worse than that this guy I am telling you is in danger but he's in danger from the left and everyone on the right needs to protect this guy everybody in the right needs to make it very clear we want him to testify we want him alive and healthy and well rested because this guy must go on the witness stand I want to tell you about a special.
Skim Versus Whole Milk: Which Spoils Faster?
"Hey, brainstorm listeners today I wanted to tell you about the new podcast the brink in which hosts aerial Casten and Jonathan Strickland shared the stories of entrepreneurs who took a bold step without really, knowing if solid ground would be on the other side, tune into learn how Walt Disney bet his company and his house on the world's first feature length cartoon, and how a refugee from Vietnam turned a door to door business into a chili sauce empire every week. The brink will bring you new stories of the trials and triumphs of people who didn't let adversity stop their dreams because sometimes things just don't go your way. But what really matters are the choices you make when the odds are against you. You can listen and subscribe to the brink on apple podcasts iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, I'm Lauren Vogel bomb, and we've all had moments of uncertainty, and let's face it paranoia about the state of the food sitting in our refrigerators, you might be able to eyeball some of this suspicious items check for expiration dates on others and with some milk. Maybe you'll probably take a quick with and hope for the best. But if you've ever looked a shelf-life chart to figure out how long your milk might last. You might have noticed that skim milk is said to last a day or two longer than whole milk. But is that really true? And if so why before we really get started. I should state that there is by no means universal agreement on this issue. Some dairy scientists say skim milk lasts longer because certain fat loving microbes can develop as quickly in nonfat milk. Other say that whole milk lasts longer because free fatty acids might actually be natural preservatives. Still others say that maybe there isn't a difference in spoilage at. All it's just that. We noticed flavor changes more in one or the other. There's only been one major controlled study on these spoilage rates of whole and skim milk. And it was somewhat inconclusive skim milk was found to spoil slightly faster. But the researchers weren't exactly sure why bacteria that are psychotropic that is cold resistant are what causes spoilage in the fridge. And in the study, they multiplied at the same rate in both types of milk when the milk spoiled both whole and skim contained similar strains of bacteria. There was a pronounced difference in how whole and skim milk reacted when they were injected with the same spoilage microorganisms, but they affected the milk's taste and smell more than they did the actual spoilage rate whole milk for the record tended to turn sour and skim milk was on the bitter side. So for the purposes of your average milk consumer. There's really no hard and fast rule about which kind will spoil faster if whole. Ilk does last longer than skim the difference is so slight that any given gallon of skim milk could outlast any given gallon of whole milk. The spoilage rate depends on so many variables manufacturer production methods milk formulation plant sanitation storage, temperatures, ph level moisture content just to name a few a small change in just one of them could give any particular container of milk a slightly longer shelf life than another a couple of other factors make things even more ambiguous for one. It's pretty much impossible to pinpoint the exact moment of spoilage, depending on your sense of smell and taste and your tolerance for changes in milk flavor. You might turn up your nose at a gallon of milk that someone else might readily swig, and there's no federal regulation of milk expiration dates in the United States only twenty states, legally standardized, the date that's printed on the bottle, and those standards vary widely one state might mandate a sell by date of a certain number of days after pasteurization, whereas milk jugs in another state would be printed. With a used by date, the upshot don't base your milk purchases on which type might last longer. If you're concerned about shelf life, you'd be better off following a few simple steps to slow down milk spoilage. Whether you're a whole or skimmed drinker, I make sure your refrigerator is the correct temperature. It should be set at forty degrees Fahrenheit. That's four point four degrees celsius store, your milk on an interior shelf instead of on the door, which fluctuates more in temperature and make sure you put your milk back in the fridge as soon as possible after using it leaving it out on the counter for even a few minutes exposes it to light and heat giving 'Bacterial a chance to spring into action.
