Some investors clearly saw in announcement as a direct shot at intel with reported twenty six billion in revenue permits data center group in two thousand and twenty.

Patrick says and intel's still the giants dominates about ninety percent of this market. No response from intel on that invidia news. There was also that big one chip summit today remember. President binds infrastructure plan does include fifty billion dollars to the american chip industry. Melissa back to you josh. Quick question on the niche market point. How big is this market.

Bob Lazar, UFOs And Aliens!
"In may of nineteen eighty-nine and interview with investigative reporter. George knapp appeared on las vegas news channel k. l. a. s. a shadowy figure under the alias of dennis explained exactly what was a secret facility south of groom lake in the nevada desert nine flying saucers of extraterrestrial origin are being stored analysed and testify. The subject explains that he was tasked with reverse engineering the propulsion systems of the crash and did not know how the government had gotten hold of these crafts. The shadowy figure was eventually revealed to be bob lazar in a subsequent interview where he revealed his identity. Bob lazar who Has a bachelor's degree in physics and electronic technology from pacifica university and he continued his masters at mit. He's a very very very interesting figure. Did you know before we started this researching into this. Did you know about him. I did I watched the netflix documentary. Just a super interesting individual. And i ended up going back in like watching his interview with koa s and And seem like how all that played out in the incredible reach that it had after the fact you know it was translated into multiple languages. Played over the entire world and people were gripped by by this man's story in what he had to say because he he seems so credible. It's seems like everything he's saying really has weight in is truthful the fact that he started this with not really seeking the the attention or seeking the accolade but actually just seeking to get the information out there even hiding his identity that some might say that that would be the the behavior of someone trying to hide something but i see it as behavior of someone who is trying to protect themselves. Because they're saying something that that may actually be factual dude. I bet he is phone calls every single day. People trying to get a hold of this guy people trying to email him and all kinds of stuff and back when this verse back when this first came out. I mean think about that. The technology and the communication that they had then you know people people today are used to getting like notifications every single day but think about how he felt getting all these phone calls. When i mean he's just a regular guy he. He was picked up because he has like a coup wanda and now he's this huge figure. Even thirty years ago. I mean it's just insane. Yeah i mean. He said he used to have people camping on his lawn. And stuff. and you you to remember that within the ufo community. There are a lot of people that are. I don't know how to say it a lot of people. That are a little strange. So for those people to becoming too bob lazar and it's got to be slightly terrifying and you'll see as we kind of dive into his story that i find him very credible. I find everything that he says. Very very credible in a lot of the stuff that he has said in the past Eventually comes through. So basically he gets his degrees from mit and At university he starts working at a los alamos research lab. And i believe los alamos and working On physics and nuclear weapon research which is what what the lab does obviously and then during his employment there. Alex kind of set it. He builds a jet powered honda. It's kind of extravagant thing that he drives to work everyday. It's literally a jet on a honda. Civic nazi looks like something out of the future and he built this thing. I mean he built us thing in eighty nine. I think it might have eighty nine was one he actually worked as for so yeah it was. It was probably around eighty four. I think So that gets the attention of the los alamos local newspaper who put him on the front cover with his jet cars. Jet honda that he built and that that's a little bit important to the story later on so kind of put a pin in that. So he's working at los alamos and he says that he leaves los alamos and goes off to start other businesses. That that turn out to fail now he never really goes into detail or at least i couldn't find what those other businesses were but he a couple years later wants to get back into the science community

"While mexico may have won the battle. The alamo was thought of as a turning point for the texans in the war exaggerated tales about the thirteen day. Siege and brave sacrifice led to the formation of the famous phrase. Remember the alamo which the texan army subsequently used as a battle cry after defeating the mexican army at san jacinto in eighteen thirty six texas gained independence the elmo became a symbol of bravery and independence for texans even through the states joining of the united states in eighteen forty five however the building itself was used for many different purposes throughout the eighteen. Hundreds army barracks a supply depot a retail store. And at one point it was even a jail but just because it was no longer afford didn't mean they're still weren't soldiers protecting it only this time. They weren't fighting for a country. They were fighting for something else. Clint suppressed his smile. As the jail door slid shut the idiotic. Marshall glared at him through the bars and had the nerve to suggest that this time clinton was going to be locked up for good. He was wrong when the marshall was out of sight. Clint scouted his dim empty cell. A small waste bucket a cot with some stained dirty linens a- flickering lantern sitting on the floor just outside the bars it smelled like sweat and blood just like every jail he'd ever been in just like every jail he'd have escaped. Clinton wasn't a particularly good thief as he got caught quite frequently. He'd tried to lay low after his last arrest but today when he'd seen that good ladies ridicule hanging haphazardly offer belt he felt his hand reach out without even knowing it was going to steal it and then suddenly he was running and running and then he was falling and falling as the marshall came out of nowhere to grab his legs from behind so he wasn't great at staying out of jail but he was excellent at escaping from it. Sometimes it was about charming the guard into forgetting to lock his door or pretending to be sick and slipping away when he was taken to the doctor but he'd already used both those tactics on this marshall. This time he was going to really have to work for his escape. He was thrilled. He reached down and unstrapped a chisel from his inner thigh. After the last time he'd been locked up he started carrying it around at all times. Clinch the bed aside has softly as he could then began going at the exposed wall. He jabbed chisel into stone watching the rock flake off. But it only left a little bit cliched winced. This was going to go slowly all night if not all day and the next day and that was without counting the necessary stops when a guard or marshall came to check on him he needed another idea but his eyes of lingered on the lantern outside his cell bars. A comrade of his had once got released from cell after a guard knocked over lantern in the hallway. The guards weren't able to put out the fire right away. So they'd let all the prisoners out to save them. Clinton friend had run right out the front door. Clint wasn't sure this was the best idea. But the chisel wasn't working out so well either sometimes you just have to take the chance. Clint yanked linen off the cart and roll into a ball he reached his kindling through the bars. Trying to dip it beneath the lanterns class. If you could only catch the flame he'd be able to top story unlike his whole caught on fire and then the marshal would have to let them out. If he didn't it would be manslaughter if not murder. But just before the linen hit the flame entered a door. Open the distance there. Was someone coming. Clint through the sheet back on the bed and lay down. It is is trained to the hall outside his cell. The footsteps grew closer and closer but no one appeared. Clint slowly peered out of the cell bars. The hallway empty. How strange he thought he waited a moment but all was quiet too quiet. The silence suddenly felt oppressive. He waited a moment longer but heard nothing else so he turned back to the bed and grabbed the sheet again now more than ever he wanted to get out of there. He held the cloth to the flame and the linen caught. He had torch but then clinched her too low desperate voice. Plead put it out. Clint's heart leapt. No one was in his cell and yet it seemed like the voice spoke almost into his ear. A sharp burning sensation bit into his fingers. It was the burning limit. Reminding him he had fired to start. It was now or never with a grin. He dropped the fireball onto the cocked but the flames grew faster than he thought they would. Within seconds they climbed up the walls. He thought he could from so easily he yelled for. The marshall backed away from the fire but when he was pressed up against the bars of his cell. The marshall still hadn't appeared panicked seeped in he was trapped. He screamed for the marshall at the top of his lungs. The marshal would come. Clint just had to be louder. Deep mone came from behind him clinton turned and saw figure sitting on the cot surrounded by the fire clinton gasped. the figure wasn't burning but it wasn't totally unscathed. You were double breasted military jacket and held a long musket in his arms and each of his cheeks had burn mark on them in the shape of a handprint the flames. Clint could tell he looked very very sad. He softly told clinch that they came for those who tried to. Burn the alamo then. He apologized for not warning. Clint sooner he'd tried to do better next time when it wasn't already too late. Clint screamed into the hall. The guards wondering how they couldn't smell the fire then. He noticed that the smoke wasn't seeping into the hallway. It stopped right at his cell. This man but somehow trapping him clinton was a master at escaping but the thought was dawning on him that he might not escape this. He suddenly felt scalding heat sear into his arms his shoulders his chest. Four sets of burning hands were wrapped around his body extending out from the cell bars. Clint screamed for the guards. He understood now that the guards couldn't hear him but he.
How to Fill a Few Seats At The Cinema? Rent Them to Gamers
"March in the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic. We brought you a story about how a devastated movie theater industry found a glimmer of hope by turning to that old american classic the drive in movie theater that hope was short. Lived though as many drive ins were forced to close because of stay at home orders in some cities and cold weather and others. But now there's another small light at the end of the tunnel for an industry. That's been gutted by the pandemic this time. The story starts in south korea with movie theaters around the country closed or operating at a limited capacity and film releases largely on hold due to covid south korea's largest cinema chain. Cg v had a bright idea. the company started renting out. It's largely empty theaters to folks who might enjoy the use of a big screen and surround sound. You know video gamers gamers. Pay up to a hundred and thirty five. Us dollars to rent out a theater. Video games consoles and controllers not included and renters. Told the bbc that gaming in theaters pretty cool the sound quality is top notch and the graphics are almost lifelike turns out a. Us theater chain was already on the gaming in the theater trend after a gutting year for the cinema industry most us movie theaters shut down in march early on in the covid. Nineteen pandemic and while some chains opted to carefully reopen some locations. Last summer those were shuttered again. In the fall when cases spite put simply putting up two hundred people in a room while they sit on coke munch on popcorn at the screen. Well you know. It's just not safe so malka theaters which operates thirty-six cinemas in the southern. Us rolled out. Its malko select gaming at several locations. Last november up to twenty gamers can book a theater for one hundred and fifty dollars in play until they drop or until three hours is up. Whichever comes first. i'm thinking it might be. The latter malko also allows customers to book private film screenings for up to twenty people and sells food and beverage packages alongside the reynolds malkhaz twenty twenty revenue down ninety percent from twenty nineteen thanks to the covid nineteen pandemic and while renting out theaters to gamers film. Buffs is one way to avoid closing down completely. It's not making the chain much money. Karen melton malkhaz vice president and director of marketing told the bbc quote. It's gaining traction and becoming popular but nothing is adding to our profitability at this point on quote and that's the harsh reality for many theater chains. Amc theaters has spent much of the pandemic on the edge of bankruptcy after revenue fell ninety one percent. The chain managed to raise over nine hundred million in new equity and debt capital rap reported. The injection allows the chain defend off bankruptcy for now. Amc started renting private theatres last fall at around ninety nine dollars a pop for screenings though not for gaming although for an extra hundred bucks you can score a microphone to welcome your guests. Meanwhile screen rental from rival cinemark costs around one hundred dollars another chain. Alamo draft house offers private screening starting at three hundred dollars which includes tickets and food when you think of the average pre virus movie screening with around two hundred customers paying an average of a little over nine dollars for a ticket. That's eighteen hundred dollars that the theater brings end before even popping a single popcorn kernel at the often pricey concession stand private screenings and video game parties just can't cut into all that red still on the horizon for cinemas is. Well what is that. Hope as a million americans received the covid nineteen vaccination each day some theater chains are cautiously reopening at diminished capacity. Of course most amc theater locations are open in accordance with state and local guidelines and malka reopened several theaters in late january and earlier. This month of course strict guidelines are in place for one you can say goodbye to endless soda and popcorn refills and in theater service but still after the year that the cinema industry has had anything is better than nothing. Even if at anything involves a little. Mario kart
NASA’s Perseverance rover lands on Mars
"Good morning, Scientists from Planet Earth will land another mission on Mars today. NASA calls the rover perseverance. NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka has been following this one. Good morning, Joe. Morning, Noel, Can we talk about the logistics of this? They have to get a hurtling projectile toe land safely on Mars. How is this done? Yeah. What's the big trick? It's going 12,000 MPH, and they have two landed it two MPH. No problem. Well, what happens is they're overs packed up into something called the Aero Shell, which hits the top of the atmosphere on Mars and Atmosphere slows the craft down and it's friction heats up. That's why there's a heat shield, but that does slow it down quite a bit. But then there's a giant. Parachute that slows it down further and then finally, there's something called the Sky Crane, which is a jet pack that flies over the landing site to the landing site, then lowers the rover down on a tether and then cuts the cord and flies away. But the interesting thing is, this is the same landing system that the last rover used called curiosity. But it's been made more up to date by the fact that it's got this smart landing system so that you can actually look for Ah, good place to land. If it doesn't like the first place it picks the confide to the next one. What is modern is all the computers and navigation systems are on this new rover. The design of the rocket engines on the sky Crane is actually 50 years old. Believe it or not, those engines all trace their way back to the Viking Landers. That's Joe Cassidy, He's executive director for space at Arrow Jet Rocket die in the company that makes the rocket engine. The Viking missions landed on Mars in the mid seventies, and Cassidy says the rocket designed depended on a special valve that made it possible to vary the Rockets thrust. Funny part is back in the seventies, We had a supplier that actually developed that forest with J. P L came back to us in the latter part of the first decade of the 21st century and said, We want you to do that again. That supplier was no longer in business. But luckily they were able to find an alternate supplier who would make the valve for them. Very luckily, what is perseverance looking for on Mars? Well, it's landing in a place called Jez zero Crater, which was they think a lake bed 3.5 or Lake 3.5 billion years ago, And the idea is there might might might have been microbes in the lake. So there'll be cameras on the rover that will study the appearance of rocks looking for things like stromatolites, which are structures left behind by mats of bacteria. They're also instruments on the rover that will measure the chemical and mineral composition of the rocks at the landing site, and Nina Lanza is a geologist at Los Alamos National Lab and the scientists on one of those instruments called super Camp. See, this is the kind of thing that a geologist needs right. We need both chemistry. What's in Iraq and mineralogy how it's arranged. So knowing those things tells a lot about the conditions under which the rock form then whether or not those conditions were conducive to life. I asked this excitedly. Could we be getting news soon, saying that there was life on Mars? Well, it's one of those news stories where people get very excited, but they will also say I'm from Missouri proof show me so that's actually the idea of this. They may see things that look like there might have been life there. But they say to confirm that they have to bring the rocks back to Earth. And in fact, that's what this mission is going to do. It's going to collect samples that a future mission will return to Earth. Okay. NPR Mars correspondent Joe Palka.

How streaming services and COVID-19 upended Hollywood
"Coronavirus is up ended. A lot of things about our lives but few industries has seen as drastic a change as the entertainment business with the ride streaming services and social begging the question. What happens the movie theaters a broader. Chang this is your daily charge joining us way to this. Transformation is our media expert johnson. Welcome john so let's start with a recap of the year. We saw the launch the number of streaming services peacock. Hbo max and then of course stalwarts like netflix. Continue to dominate. Pop culture with shows like tiger king in queen's gambit. How did the so-called street war shakeout in twenty twenty. We saw breakaway successes and truly epic failures over the course of the last year among all the new services that launched in the last fourteen months or so nothing compares to disney plus the subscribers that a service brings in that's the currency of success for streaming services. And no matter how you look at it. Disney plus blew away all other new competitors completely out of the water disney hoped to have between sixty million and ninety million subscribers within five years and it nearly hit the top of that. Its most obstacle optimistic expectation at nearly beat that within one year not five. It's at eighty six point eight million subscribers at the end of its first year and then on the flip side you had these failures quickly. Which entered twenty twenty swinging it was booking super bowl commercials. It was making it rain. All over hollywood paying stars tons of money to make these short form Cereal movies and chapters and Daily essentials and other things that if you could see me i'm making all these little air quotes but it totally flopped and it announced that it was completely shutting down just seven months after launching. So we've seen some really legendary story play out in the streaming world this year definitely and in between though we had a couple of those services. Hbo max peacock which all launched as well and lose a little bit quieter for them up until the end of the hbo. Max how did those two services fair out when they were they launched didn't do as well as disney plus but nothing has done is walls just pause. You really. nothing else compares to what they've been doing you know if if disney plus had it had the insane year that it did their launches would look you know pretty good all right. Hbo max is at you know. I have to check the numbers. But it's at i think. Eight point six million accounts and peacock has more than that because he got chasm free tier. Hbo max you have to pay fifteen dollars a month to access it or b a each b. o. l. subscriber That has a deal with. Hbo backs in order to get it. But the point is you know. They're doing fine sean. It's compared to a truly extraordinary. Unexpected success like disney plus that. It looks like they're really doing poorly and to be fair to you know. Hbo max with its high price. Point the fact that the fact that it was kind of a Confusing proposition two people and The fact that it wasn't on roku or fire tv the two most popular devices for months that also crimped it in particular its appeal. you know. They're like thirty some million people that can have. Hbo max basically for free because they are. They're already paying for hbo and of those were at or still at below ten million accounts. Right we are back so it's definitely struggled in some senses yet. It will disney plus held by a number of big cultural milestones the hamilton earlier this year. Of course mandalorian is back more baby love even new law which at that dollar premium charged pretty well. Hbo max is poised to have its potential big moment tomorrow with the release of what am nine hundred eighty four. I'm curious what you think. The impact is there and as we sort of look for. You know how that's going to help set the way movies are released. Well it cer- certainly gonna superchargers interest in hbo coupled with the fact that it max not only is releasing wonder woman On christmas day the same day that it's available to see in theaters on those that are open It's also making it. Its entire slate. The warner brothers. Entire slate of movies for the entirety of next year are going to be released the same way where there. It's available to stream on. Hbo max the same day. It's in theaters for a period of one month. So people have one month to to sign up for talks log into it if you already have. It watched like some of the you know wonder woman. Nineteen eighty-four dude matrix. Four tons of like huge movies and smaller ones that are also heading to spin. It looks like that's ever happened before people are really excited about it. It's gonna supercharge interest in the streaming service. But it also means that you know. It's kind of a crossing of the rubicon For decades theaters have had a seventy at least seventy five days where they get exclusive access to new movies and of course during the pandemic with these widespread theater closures senate as being closed a lot of companies have tried to figure out. How can you can't have a seventy five day window or something is only in theaters. When there aren't any theatres open and the ones that are people. Don't feel safe going to so we've seen a lot of experimentation about. What do we do in this situation. But this move by warner brothers. Hbo max are. They're making so many of these really big budget movies available. What's known as day and date or it's available for home video streaming the same day that it's in theaters. That's that's a point of no return like things are never. They might not look exactly like that once. The coronavirus and the pandemic are in our rear view window. But it's never going to be theaters and the transit. Never going to be exactly the same again. So the reaction will imagine for folks out there who are locked down this is. This is good news but not everyone has created this with open arms. Right number of directors filmmakers actors have been up in arms. Or who's been sort of speaking out against this. Practice will certainly christopher nolan. Who is a longtime warner brothers director. He's bamed all of his big films with warner brothers and most recently His tenant was released by warner brothers and not partly led to this decision. That warner brothers needed to figure out something other than purely theatrical premieres for films tenant was released it did tentative fine overseas it did reasonably well but in the us tanks. Like i he nolan is is a faint is fame Famously defensive of the theatrical experience. He's one of those ought autour filmmakers who treasures that big dark room and the hush crowd gasping all the same time like. That's that's is cocaine or whatever and he didn't want to give that up and they didn't make him and they released tenet where it had an exclusive period in theaters and it s than sixty million dollars at the box office. That you know. It's standard for one of his movies to make one hundred million plus in the us at the box office so the fact that they saw that it's just not tenable Just not tenable to have this sort of theatrical this preciousness around theatrical release at least during the pandemic they went a different route they. There's is the most extreme that any studio has announced so far a lot of other studios are trying to be a little more compromising and their decision was made largely without consultation with filmmakers. Which you know. It's one thing to up end. These long held norms. Some of which a lot of filmmakers really treasure like christopher nolan really treasures this theatrical the experience and protecting it but it's not always it's it's the medium not the message sometimes in the fact that they sort of dropped this bomb on these people without with wonder woman. There's a lot of consultation with those filmmakers but the entire slate like they couldn't reach out because people talk in hollywood if they reached out to some people get all over town so they basically maybe with a little bit of notice tried to get it out to some people but essentially shut. Drop this bomb on the filmmaker community and that in addition to the fact that it was such a dramatic change from what's baked into contracts and what people expected is it led to a really huge backlash and we're going to see if they're going to get sued or get sued. You might have to walk back many things. They might have to take something that were on the two thousand twenty one slate off the twenty twenty one slates and they don't fall under this so called hybrid strategy. That's something we're going to play out next year. Well curious if this is a a one off thing or is this this pandemic related that twenty one is like twenty twenty a bit of a lost year as be struggled to kind of get back enormously but once you get past it go back to normal. You mentioned the crossing the rubicon. How do you think things the changes that were saying. Now my kind of play out the long term or will there be more of a hybrid approach like what one of the things look like once we get to some semblance of normalcy again. It's never going back to the way. It was like the way the seventy five day ninety day window. That theaters get new movies. That's not coming back even after the pandemic because i think consumers for a really long time have wanted more options. Especially i mean. Young consumers don't understand even older consumers. Don't understand why you have to wait that long to choose where you get to watch your movie you know. Like the seventy five and ninety day window and theater followed by the dvd followed by online vod online rentals followed by a pay one window followed by a pay to win. Like there's going it's going to change but we can say for sure. Theaters are not going to be able to count on that sort of cushion. Seventy five day to ninety day window getting all new movies. They can't count on that because too many of these studios are owned by media companies that are also launching streaming services. I'm really want them to succeed. It's not just warner brothers on by. At and t. and also owns hbo. Max that is playing and experimenting with these new formats like you mentioned milan. That's disney disney decided disney of all studios. They build their franchises on theatrical release. That means a lots of them. But they're still even toying with things like you said they released hamilton which is supposed to be a big screen movie. Next year they released it more than a year in advance and put a totally free on disney plus for their big budget stuff. They're putting it on disney plus with this. What's not calling premier access which is basically when you pay a thirty dollar extra fee and you get movies like milan that you can stream day and date same day as in theaters next year. They're going to do that with riot. Dragon but even with dizzy. They've said they haven't defined what they're gonna do with marvel movies. It looks like they're gonna give marvel movies. Which are you know. Some of their biggest blockbusters that they still have on the slate coming up. They're going to give them some time in the theaters because they know how important that is to building a franchise having that sort of mythic proportion in a theater is really important to a marvel movie whether or not black widow comes to streaming a lot earlier than it would have before in previous you know. In the olden days. A year ago it would've taken about six months to nine months for any theatrical disney movie to make the disney plus. Maybe that'll shrink. What we do know is that theaters are not going to be able to count on a seventy five day. Window consumers are going to have a lot more options about win and where they get to watch new movies and the theatrical spirits is going to have to change you know without having that really special treatment that kid gloves treatment of getting seventy five day window. You're going to see theaters having to adapt offering more food upgrading. The experience of going there They're gonna have to experiment with a lot of different payment models even maybe The point is movie. Theaters haven't really had to adapt or innovate for decades. Because i've had this protected window and that protected window is going to change. But it's never coming back the way it was and the theater. Experience is going to change too so that change is thrust upon them and they're forced to adapt. Do you think theaters are doomed to failure are they are they they are they screwed ultimately. Because i frankly i missed the theater experience but i can't see myself going back for while and so we'll we'll theater survive long enough to be able to adapt and change. Yeah the are going to survive like they just won't be as many and they won't look the same as they did. Which you know a natural thing movies have been around cinemas have been around for a really long time. It's one of. Its basically the first mass mass visual audio visual media You don't have theaters like the depression-era people's palaces anymore. we don't go to theaters. That look like someplace that would have a metropolitan opera in. That's what happened in the twenties thirties. We don't have that anymore because things change television happened. So that's going to be another change but what you're gonna see the the gigantic megaplexes. Amc's the cinemark probably going to get smaller because they can't if you don't have that exclusive access to something that people can choose whether or not they're watching it on that big screen or watching on their home screen where people are going to be able to. They're going to choose to watch it on their home screen and so you don't just need as many movie screens in america anymore. So we're going to see theaters close. We might see some chains completely. Go out of business. The thing that will be interesting to see is how smaller chains mom-and-pop theaters you know the local art house theater. The smaller chains like alamo draft house. We're already seeing that. Those are those are the theaters in cinemas that are more likely to adopt because they don't have a sort of mcdonald's mass market Happy meal mentality. they're catering to a local community. They're more likely to know the sort of things that would bring people into their theater if it's more than just movies it's easier for them to pivot in. Adopting alamo draft house was one of the first chains so to speak. That offered this rent a whole theater option. Which has become more popular during the pandemic instead of having to spend three hundred to a thousand two more dollars to rent entire theater. It's like look we can't can barely show this to people because of restrictions. Why don't you rent the theater for a hundred bucks and you can bring fifteen of your closest friends and you can all like sit apart from each other and you can be pretty confident that we're going to be sanitizing it because we don't or trying to stuff seats because we have to stuff seats. They were the first ones to innovate in that sense. And we start to adopt adapt that model so no like theaters. Theaters aren't going to die. They're just gonna look a lot different in the future
Davey Crocket and The Frozen Sun
"Lived a man named davy crockett. If you've heard of old navy it's probably for his final stand at the alamo or more likely for his raccoon skin cap. The cap was made of thick raccoon for for keeping warm during the harsh western winters. And it had the bushy tail hanging down the back. Davy crockett was more than the alamo and a cap though he was an adventurer one of the brave people who saw the endless frontier and waited in a man at his favorite swimming hole even during the coldest winters rarely would he be sitting peacefully indoors or relaxing. He spent his days out in nature sleeping in the mountains and bathing in the rivers. Other folks thought davy. Crockett might just be a little crazy but if so they were lucky to have him because it was on one particularly cold morning that davy. Crockett saved the world. He woke with the sun as he always did. In those days it was deep winter in the mountains. Where even though the donning son was bright. It didn't seem to offer any warmth at all. Icy wind howled like a banshee and even the animals had the good sense to be hibernating. What a beautiful morning davies said to himself he tried to rise up out of his bedroll but it was so covered in ice. He was stuck fast with a little work. He managed to get an arm free and then he was able to use a hammer and chisel to get the rest of the way out. It's cold one. No doubt he said but it'll get warmer. When the son gets a meyde higher. He tried to get a fire going to make breakfast but all his would was frozen solid even the coals from the night before were nothing but snowballs davey tried to spit in disappointment but it froze halfway to the ground and shattered on an icy stone. Well ours coffee today. I guess he said he makes some coffee grounds into some snow and eight. It like a snow cone. It wasn't tasty but it seemed to help wake him up a little. Where's the darn sun. He said looking at the horizon with a start of shock. He saw that. The sun hadn't risen any higher. It was still stuck on the horizon like tongue on an ice cube and it was starting to look more blue than yellow. What in our nation is going on with that davey climbed up a nearby mountain peak to get a better view. Every step was so icy. Put his hand to his coon skin. Cap to shield. His eyes peered at the horizon. Oh lord no the frontiers mun was brave and he thought he'd seen it all in his adventures. But this was something new and something awful. It was so cold that the sun itself had frozen on the horizon. He could see it stuck between two peaks of ice sunbeam's frozen in their tracks like icicles. Well this is no good at all davies said. He looked in the other direction and saw a little town. At the base of the mountain. The buildings were all coated in a fine layer of ice. Like a frosted cake. The pastors were like sheets of glass. And even the smoke from chimneys was frozen in place. Well darn davy. Crockett said to himself from high up on the mountain peak. Either i'm gonna fix this mess or we gotta get the cows so my skates he thought about cows skating for a minute and decided that they wouldn't like it that much better. He just fixed the problem before all the milk got frozen into ice cream. Of course most people may have been at a loss on how to fix a frozen sun but davy. Crockett wasn't like most people. He didn't wait around thinking or planning or any of that now. He just pointed himself at the frozen sun and started walking.

It's nice to be in, our, small community of Santa Fe You have been some really great places around here too and I think the thing that bothered me most for your sake was when you started at bishop's.

"Hey, guys how're you, doing this, evening good go, ahead I was. Hoping Ascalon, know what, other kind of programs were going on at. Los Alamos labs 'cause I had like a really private tour there when. I was a kid Los. Alamos, labs, are Lawrence Livermore I. Said, Lawrence. Livermore did you talk about? Los. Alamos Alana Yeah Primarily directed energy weapons aren't? There Anyway I don't know, when they caller is talking about, but it's mostly directed energy weapons which includes I and is non ionized just go back to. The seventies Back to the eighties seventies seventies active seven seventy eight I don't I don't remember but I know d. e. I know. Directed energy weapons. Weren't at the top of the list at that time I would assume it would have been d- you depleted uranium and and other ionized weapons Yeah they cut, my hair and sent me out there on an, airplane and I got a real private tour past. All the, armed guards and I don't remember much except going through doorways and. Walking out the building I've told this story before but you know what's going on with these fires which is I know what the real subject is you know. It sounds. A lot like, what was going on in ancient Scotland were they have all kinds of evidence in these cell. Walls of these, energy laser cuts where it looks like they were hiding from something that was shooting lasers You know kind of sounds similar From ancient science very possible that all of, this technology has been here before and that civilization had. To start, over because of it Wow well along. A it was a pleasure to. Talk, to you and I really appreciate you guys stay cold or night you have a wonderful evening. Thank you for calling the program yeah. Reminds me of if you read, some of those ancient Vega's of you read, about the bananas, we read about many of these ancient I guess they call them. Aircraft you're able to fire down from the sky huge fire columns which sounds very much like lasers sound very much like heat weapons and of. Course back eighteen hundreds yet h. g. wells writing about the the war of the worlds and how the aliens had a mirror system we had a. Mirror attached to a bright candlelit beam that was able. To burn fields of all kinds of crops and be able to kill people. And that was the basis for war of the worlds, the idea that the aliens had technology laser technology that we hear about now so it all comes from the minds of science fiction or, even minds of ancient texts is type of weaponry that Could be put together quite easily and. Maybe us now and like I said. I always refer back to what. Michio Kaku said in two thousand thirteen they're, using lasers to, control the weather and they use lasers to control lightning bolts anywhere. They want they, can put down a lightning bolt caused a fire or even destroy property so this is not too far out of the question. To say that maybe we are seeing the aftermath of these tests for geo engineering reasons Jamie Lee rhythms tonight on ground zero line of Freeland your. Calls coming up again right you're on ground zero don't. Go away a whole lot more coming tonight as this story is unfolding and. More and more people are coming forward to say these, fires are.
