"On growing as many alpine's we can find here in colorado in the gardens of self and we've been doing a lot of collecting with their conservation team and then propagating them to grow in the gardens as well So that's a big focus for myself and for nikolai to keep growing north american alpine's because they do so well they. They are adopted our climate. Yeah and so how many I don't know if you can give this to us. In you. know like acres or areas. How big is the actual cultivated space that you are managing at this point. Where about four and a half five acres of cultivated space. It's hard to put that but because these plants are so small with so concentrate so we have over about three thousand species. Different plants and You know you could within about a hundred square foot area. Have about two hundred species. So i want you to repeat that you have three thousand different species there at the betty ford alpine garden. Roughly around two to three thousand species in a relatively small space. You have a remarkable number of species growing and you've used a couple of phrases. Nick that want to unpack a little bit for listeners. You we were talking about trade it you know like a more standard perennial garden and then being different than the rock garden and the alpine plants. Can you can you run down. And and maybe both of you will weigh in on this about some of the characteristics that make an alpine plant an alpine plant because they are perennial. There are annuals but they have these characteristics. That really stand out as alpine conditions have evolved them to survive. Yeah so true. Alpine plant is a plant that would grow all ivan and all the time he's plants are very small.

Kortan is the curator of the plant collections of the betty ford alpine gardens in vail the gardens team of scientists have authored the north american botanic garden strategy for alpine plant conservation which includes multiple objectives for increasing awareness and understanding about alpine environments to further conservation efforts for these zones and the lives who have co evolved their nikola. Nick join me today to share more about their high elevation enthusiasm and efforts. Welcome to you both. Thanks very much looking forward to talking to you. This morning jennifer. I would love to get started by having both of you describe both your title and your role there at the garden. So nikola ripley. I'm the executive director at the gardens. I've been with the gardens for a long time about twenty years. I rose up through. The ranks came in as the director of horticulture Which i did for about ten years and then became Executive director ten years ago and my role at the gardens is to make sure that we have a good strategic direction. A work with the board of directors very closely. We have a fifteen men aboard. That is the visionary group for the cottons that helps us with fundraising and i work closely with them. To make sure that we keep in the right direction We have an updated strategy going forward on. I oversee the staff at the gardens and work closely. We have a wonderful team of people who enjoy working here and you know we. We work closely as a team gets me up in the morning is conservation work and to me. It's absolutely critical. Best botanical gardens play a role in connecting people with plants getting people to appreciate another stand plants and therefore to be interested in a rolling conserving. Them we focused particularly on the alpine environment. So as beautiful as the gardens are and i you know. I i know that most of the people who comes through the gardens enjoy them because they are beautiful place to be for me It goes much deeper than that. And the the role that we play in leading people to appreciate stand that want to conserve plants is what gets me up in the morning and into the office and nick. Let's move to you. Remind us of your title and your role there at the garden. And i want to ask you that. Same question of a distilled kind of mission statement or can northstar for what you do and why you do it has done for. My role is curator plant collections. And i have been with the gardens for. This is my eleventh year now like nikolai. Roseau rose to the ranks starting as an intern and then becoming a gardener horticulturist to the curator now my overall title is not just what i do. Every day as curator is creating the plans collections and growing. We wear many hats. nikola does to around the gardens. But what gets me up. In the morning to is to come in and and to see the plants blooming and learn something new every single day and to curate and maintain the best possible collection an alpine in rock garden plants in the united states. And if that may be the world so my vision is always striving to be one of the best alpine botanic gardens in the world. The overall idea that i have for my role is that we keep growing in our ever expanding species in the gardens and we aesthetically make it amazing for the public to enjoy every year. So i'd love to go back a little bit before we go forward and dig into the gardens themselves in their history and their future goals and get a little bit of history on both of you and a sense of where you were born in raised and the people and places in plants that grew you into people for whom these would be values and sources of great delight as well. And why don't we just go ahead and start with you nick. And then we'll move back to nikola. Tell us a little bit about your earliest influences. Oh well it begins sexually. Basically when i was born. I grew up a biodynamic farm in upstate. New york where i Was first exposed to vegetables and plants in waldorf education which really exposes kind of the curiosity of nature from early childhood. And from there. I really just kind of love being outside and after that wanted to do something with that when i graduated so then from there i went to school. Matt longwood gardens pennsylvania. And i went to school for their public horticulture professional gardener training program. So i went after high school in two thousand eight graduated in two thousand ten. It's a two year long Intensive program where we get hands on in classroom porticos training In possibly one of the best tanna gardens in the united states and then graduated in two thousand ten in march and came out here in may of two thousand ten where it was still snowing which was a huge surprise to me coming from the east coast and i had absolutely zero knowledge of alpine plants or rock art plants for that matter or west coast plans so it was a whole new world for me when i first moved here and i fell in love instantly. I always have been a big person. The mountains of big skier so this happened to be kind of paradise me a botanic garden in world class ski pound so i was instantly hooked great There's nothing like a may snowstorm in in colorado or june. Want so nikola. Let's move to you and same question. You know who were the the people and places in plants that grew you into a person for whom conservation would get you up in the morning and Maybe start with where you were born and raised and take us through your training that brought you to by ford. So i grew up in the north west of england in garden country relay but actually never was of net. Didn't spend a lot of time visiting botanic gardens growing up. My dad was a mountain climber. And so all of our holidays were spent out in the yorkshire dales and in the pennines of northern england. And i grew really to love mountaineering to love the plants that grew in the mountains. We spent a lot of time in scotland and the lake district climbing. And so got a loss of the british alpine's and that's how i got really interested in the environment and plants in particular. I went to the university of your contented. Degree in biology and my thesis was on plants of limestone pavements in northern england that led me to work with nature conservancy in the uk looking for sites of special scientific interest in the north yorkshire moors national park..

And then i've worked at johns hopkins microsoft research And most recently. Google research worked on computer vision as well. As natural language processing computational linguistics and more recently issues of bias unfairness Awesome and emily. You are on the show too long ago when we talked about is linguistics missing from alpine research. Give us a little bit of your background. And maybe a catch up on what you've been doing for the past year so like you said. I'm a linguist. Studying linguistics at uc berkeley and then stanford and then. I got to come to washington and start the professional. Master's program in computational linguistics. Where meg was a student many years ago. Now i got over then. So i work in a largely in linguistics and competition linguistics but since about twenty sixteen have also been working in the space of. I've tried to avoid the phrase. Actually ethics sends people down these paths into philosophy that i find somewhat less helpful but societal impact of nlp and in that context a lot of the same discussions are relevant that relevant to other things that fall under the umbrella.

The Impact of Australian High Performance Computing in the Coming decade

"Joining us in the podcast. Today we have professor shawn smith that director of national computational infrastructure and see i and he's also a professor or computation of nanno matera science and technology at australian national university. Professor smith is also a fellow of the royal australian chemical institute a fellow american is association for the advancement of science a fellow of the institute of chemical engineers and he will be sharing with us the highlights of high performance computing at nci. Thank you professor for joining us in the podcast. Today i thought we kick off by taking a look at the evolution and development in australia. Research backed by high performance computing and data infrastructure which plays a pivotal role in national research. But also have wide ranging economic and social impacts. I'm so for example as you pointed out in your presentation at supercomputing asia Looking at the year two thousand twenty the events challenging for many with the pandemic but particularly so for australia with the bushfire which i thought i very salient. Examples of where policymakers and help provide as neat fayza reliable information to get a sense of what is yet to come to better manage the situation but beyond these examples is also cancer research. Physics et cetera. So for our listeners. Can you tell us more about you know audi australia. Research are backed. By high performance. Computing infrastructure have evolved over the decades. You certainly are one constructive way to approach that question. Jain may be. If if i summarize the way in which australia to tijuana one phones compute facilities have evolved over the past decade which gives a flavor of how that the sick to hebron australia has developed in the major demise signs that have been really key in driving it forwards so we have to tier one facilities in australia One is the australian at the australian national university campus. Here in canberra the other one is the posey supercomputing center in person west australia. So both of these centers were set up in their initial in the current model as it were nearly a decade ago and when nci was stood up in its current form. The australian national university has long long history of computing. But the carrots. Nci was put in place around about twenty eleven two thousand twelve and we build a new data center on campus and put in the previous supercomputing facility which was called ryan now when i was set up with financial input from the federal government. They then we're really looking for a degree of leverage of their investment And so the federal contributions to were helped to facilitate the standing up of the big facility and the big shane And the new data center per se and they contribute a certain amount of our national expenses. But i asked us dan to negotiate the larger part of operating expenses. With am i just stike holders. And in the case of nci. This was done by substantial collaboration with four major organizations. I was the australian national university. Which is our organizational host. It was the csi. Giovanni australia and the bureau of meteorology so the one university into three big government agencies collaborated in a way that allowed to build out and develop and the common thread across those three. Big agencies was really climate weather simulation and geospatial science earth sciences and so for example the the great majority of large-scale climate modeling research is done at nci. And it's done. In collaboration between the bureau of meteorology the csi and the university sector which has some substantial activity also in that mind so nci became if you will the collaborative sandpit that these organizations could actually work together on very large common data sets in degenerate very large data. It's through the simulation work and the the other component of that was with geoscience australia. They are the secretaries for the international agreements which bring labs scout satellite imaging data four alpine out of the globe down to australia and nci was tasked to work with Jason social strata. To figure out how to host is enormous data sets and make them there in available findable so forth and accessible and utilize -able

The Art & Science of Rock Gardening

"Thinking about it from the gardening perspective. When you say a rock garden will start there. What what what is a rock garden mean exactly. Well you know. It's a books of unwritten about it. Hundreds of books matter of fact but graham stuart thomas wrote the classic but it really can't comes back to the nineteenth century and victorian so to speak and europe is well when tourists started going to use. There were just stunned by the beauty of the flowers. And they want to take them home and they did they dig them up and take them home and they'd started by building these raucous and they were pretty dreadful and you can still see him an old neighborhoods around stuff so it really was about taking that the app spec home but that was the beginning. There's another beginning. Of course that goes back to china in in the third century when the poet chen or being during the six dynasties period here he describes a building a garden with rocks and wildflowers. So that the the asians have been doing that not alpine so much more woodland plants and that's really what most americans do because especially in the east and the west coast. That's what you go best woodland plants so my vision of rock guiding is not strictly alpine although the outlines of pretty cool you know your audience can't see the screen behind me but it's actually a garden in and utah. The belongs to a man named john steiermark and it's nothing but dry land plants from the american west and africa and a spectacular fall any alpine vista. So the truth be said what for me. What rock gardening as i had to sum it up in a sentence would be recreating a something natural around you so that you can have fun with nature and learn so for me. A rock garden could be a bog. Could be a prairie. It could be a a border of plants. Big ones little ones. that are more or less naturalistic. The bottom line is really wild plants. More than anything else i mean. We have cultivars of of these plants but for me in my experience rock gardening. Because i've been a member of the rock garden society for example for about fifty years and the scottish and english as well and was astonishing. Is this this community of people who really know. Plants like nobody. I mean botanist. I guess not planning on way but rock gardeners have this extraordinary ability to know the plan from the time it's the seed till it matures. And it's the rock gardeners. I think of the world who are some of the greatest explorers and plant worshipers. Shall we say yes certainly. And that is my favorite thing about these very specific groups and yes botanists an ecologists. They have their own interaction. But there's few people in the department. At least that. I work in in many of the departments. I know of that can grow a plant or really truly get to understand plant. Quite like gardner does and those specific groups when you start to find people that super specialize they are encyclopedia's of both knowledge and the artistry of it. And that's what excites me. The most about rock gardening is it. Is that sort of emphasis on species which excites me. I liked cultivars plenty enough but to me. The species did at the best nature invented the best and has unparalleled. But then you get to express yourself a little bit and try to recreate something this this honoring of nature honoring the landscape and rock. Earning really emphasizes that more than a lot of other types of guarding. Perhaps by is just trying to recreate or at least honor something. That nature has done over millennia. Which isn't easy but it's also very rewarding. When you do something come out of the other

A Childhood on the Farm

"So let's jump off from one. Animal will benefit the other to talk about the family so moving to hear you describe this because it reminds me of students taking an environmental science class. And then there's the quiz lit and the flash cards and the phrase kurban sequestered and drew are false. This is learning by doing. And it's absolutely the way. Children learn best using all five senses in the three dimensional world. And you also mentioned joan about the changing of seasons and how the children are accustomed to that and learn the rhythm of that so one animal benefiting the other in your particular described to me that challenges and reward of. Let's start with. Sasha how does she benefit and tax and challenged the rest of the system right. Well i would say. Sasha is our observer and alert system for the families. she's really in tune when somebody's hurt or sick because she's always hyper focused on anything being out of balance essentially if she notices as a change to our rhythm change to our habits. She's the first to say. Why are we doing this or what's wrong about the situation. It's not what we're used to doing. The same goes for on the farm. She's the first one to come running in and say there's an injured goat. There is an injured goat coming into the house and she gets to say that sentence mom. There's an injured goat or or such and such goethe's in heat. We better breed them right now. Oh yes and how does she know about such and such goat well. She's been raised with them since she was born and so she knows their behavior. She knows all of them and their personalities and when they're acting different and with her their heat cycles she's aware that the fall is when they go into heat and she knows that they flagged their tails when they're ready flag their tail. They flagged their tails. Does it mean wave of back and forth her yup and she's smitten with a particular goat. Yes she has. A favourite goat considers it her child the goats name panda and it's an alpine dairy goat. That's funny yup. it's black and white. There is a year where we had a lot of black and white dulling so and they decided to name them all black and white name so there is like orca. Oreo and panda was one of them. Yeah so this is so much fun. This is someone because this is children's imagination applied to a practical purpose because those goats need names. You need to be able to distinguish them when she comes and says that panda is in heat. It's important for you to be able to picture which goat. She's talking about absolutely. She is alert when she comes in with the news on the continuum of excited and enthusiastic veg ing on alarm more panic. What's the tone. I would say it's equally both. I would say that to once she experiences says sees this she comes around in and it's like frantic furious. This is very important. You have to listen to me. So and so is doing this that or the other or so and so's injured and it's just i think it's giddiness that she is able to tell us that. And it's also that she is experiencing what's going on so she is. She's getting both those things going on in her brain at same

"I'm kind of overwhelmed at the possibilities that you have in your list But i did see one sort of like theme ish thing that really caught my eye and recently my friend can drew's and i were talking on the show about some favorite of our early native spring. Perennials were both eastern gardeners. And we both love things with surveys. Arching stems like solomon's seal and such and you have a lot of things like that i think and i don't know if that's intentional. Or if you're obsessed with that too but can we talk about some of them like the polygon items and my anthem and you've you larrea. I die spor homes and whatever. I saw a lot of these things. Tell me about plants that look like that. Let's talk about that. Yeah yeah yeah all of those that whole kind of group. I mean they're like the disarms are now you know been separated out from the into a different family than Pulling games or solomon sales but but we kinda regard them as the sort of fulfilling the same function in the garden. They have the same visual Impact and appeal really and And we're just we are just smitten by them and and and for good reason. There's fear other things that Offer that In the shade garden Solomon's seals in particular Have there's there's over. Eighty species of solomon seals and within each species and their diversity is incredible. I mean it goes from the arctic circle down to tropical rainforest in vietnam and they can be. We've actually pitched a tent on flicking them hooker. I at thirteen thousand feet in eastern bhutan and that only gets an inch or two high in that really short alpine turf whereas We've got political. Tim did in our shade garden. And it's not done reaching its full mature size and we've been as tall as fifteen feet so that's pretty awesome. Thank goodness textiles for them and it said you have thirty one. Different polygamy items. And i was like and then you had an article on the website. I'll give a link with the transcript to it about one that i think it's cinemas The species is king knee. Ainum or juan neum or something It's like a twelve footer. With orange flowers that was surprising. Yeah that's really really nice thing. It's one that had been the had been regarded as a flagging kingham. It's it's distinct in that it has leaves. That are different than what we would see on on on the east coast for example Heard the leaves are kind of following this stem and their little alternate sort of things like every other step stepped up. The leaves up the stem but in keenum who aim vietnam again Their what's called a tesla arrangement of lease or their little like spokes on a wheel in quarrels ranked up the stem. And that's that's very distinctive right. Can you ain't them You know crashing. You know if it gets like ten twelve or even like in vietnam and fifteen feet. How do you. How do you keep those upright. And they've got a clever little adaptation not the end of each leaf tip at hooks into a little hook and it will actually hold onto surrounding branchless and of shrubs and so we have going up through having going up to really thin twigged shabby dogwoods and that can kind of self trellis themselves that way.

Mask Suppliers Want to Save N-95s for the People Who Need Them Most

"It feels like forever but it's only been about ten months. Since protective face masks became on vote or legally mandated depending on where you are last april the cdc recommended that people wear face coverings in public and retailers scrambled to meet the demand suddenly stores from abercrombie to wedding dress. Outfitter beholden were stocking their shelves with masks. But of course the face coverings vary widely in terms of effectiveness from very good at stopping the spread of covid to pretty terrible medical grade. In ninety five masks are considered. The most protective. They stop around ninety five percent of small particles from reaching the wearer's nose and mouth the least effective that would be those thin fabric buffs that people pull up around their faces. Sorry runners those face coverings are just not doing the trick. Double layered cloth face masks fall somewhere in between so in ninety. Five masks are the best. But they're in short supply last april the three company a handful of smaller competitors were producing about fifty million in ninety five masks month according to the wall street journal but with doctors nurses and other medical staff relying on in ninety five fifty million a month just wasn't keeping up with growing demand and now a steady rise in cases plus a new strain of the corona viruses driving that demand higher well a few manufacturers think they found a solution masks that are effective and relatively easy to make and targeted to the general population that leaves in ninety. Five's for the medical workers who need them. Honeywell which has been churning out in ninety five since the beginning of the pandemic has introduced a new washable mask. that's woven from polyester nylon and spandex. It comes with twelve replaceable filters made from the same material. That's found in in ninety five and it runs about thirty dollars. The wall street journal reported the three m company is started focusing on masks for everyday customers. They've made a stretchy reusable mask that's about as effective as an in ninety five. The new york city fire department said it would outfit. It's firefighters three m's new masks to avoid cutting into the city's dwindling stockpile of in ninety five's smaller companies like outdoor research have gotten in on the game two. They usually make alpine climbing gear but last year started producing both medical grade and use masks like they're stretchy mask. The comes with a set of replaceable filters that one will run you around. Twenty one dollars. You'd think companies devoted to stopping the spread of a deadly virus. Might not be thinking so much about direct competition. And you'd be right kind of three m and honeywell or two of around sixty mask outfitters. That have entered into an information sharing group. That's protected from antitrust scrutiny. The go share production pricing and distribution information. That gets more masks into the hands of more people faster. They may be working together. But don't let any of these companies catch trying to pass off their products as your own. Three m has sued a florida company. That produced counterfeit n ninety five masks with three m logo and tried to sell them to hospitals at a markup. That obviously did not sit well with three m or the hospital system. That bought the masks which may or may not work in protecting people from the virus.

"Paul that comes first to top the world's second tallest peak and winner. Pakistan's Alpine club, says the team of 10 Nepalese climbers made history scaling the world's second highest peak Que Tu in the winter season, reaching the summit late Saturday afternoon. Renowned mountain stands at 28,251 ft and has never been scaled in the winter before where winds can blow more than 125 miles an hour and temperatures can drop to minus 76 F.

"I hope you're writing a book called that we can expect to come out next year. Yes i'm working on. And so i should say. Of course we'll have a book giveaway on with the transcript of the show on to garden dot com of your new book. I don't know how you manage to get this done. In addition to everything else. I don't know honestly but it was really fun to write and sort of revisit the whole season extending as well as you know the many other reasons besides harvey and cold weather So yeah this was a fun project for me for kept me busy. And it really is not against the instruction not just season extending but it's like insect prevention. It's like all of the uses for these sort of barriers and enclosures. And so forth right. And there's a wide range of of gizmos that you have gift moses. An underrated word. I'm going to have to steal that margaret on Yeah for sure. I mean i garden and nova scotia which is dear country as is of course much of the us and canada. And i deal with your every single day. I mean. I would note for a run in my neighborhood yesterday and had to stop. Let four deer walk across the road in front of me And they were probably on their way to my garden But yeah everything from deer and groundhogs two rabbits to cabbage worms and slugs and flea beetles and potato beetles and cucumber beetles. So there are a lot of reasons to consider covers. I think most people automatically go to season extension and protecting from cold weather. But you know. I use them in so many different ways to not only protect my food from pests and cold weather but even grow healthier plants in the end have larger harvest because those plans have been protected. You know and they're able to produce better so there are a lot of reasons to sort of. Consider yourself an undercover gardner right so in the introduction. I also said i was asking questions for friend. Oh yes my friend. Do you know how that is when you ask questions for a friend. What seriously. I actually do have a friend who just felt cold frames and this is his first late fall into winter with them and he actually did ask me the question i said but That is the oldest skies in the book. Have loads of cold frame questions for me to besides the extra extending of the season in the we'll get there. 'cause build a cold frame is actually the number one thing on the top of my 2021 garden to do less because i had an ancient one that succumbed finally kinda fell apart from earlier as the gardener here in a never replaced it. And i'm just jealous especially this last year. You know. i've been jealous of my friends who have renewed. I have my seedlings in the call frame. Oh i'm having solid from the cold front. You know all these little extra goodies so called frame one. Oh one maybe we should start with like what. What is it called frame four like. Why would i check. Because there's all again all these other gizmos in the book to use our new favorite word. Yeah for sure. Well i'm glad you brought up also starting seedlings in the cold frame because most of us. I think at this point thing cold frames or just for harvesting in winter or maybe pushing back spring a little earlier so that you can start planting in march or even late february depending where you live but you know you can use a cold frame for starting seedlings which will then be dug up and transplant it to your garden but you can also use them for overwintering half hardy perennials. Or if you love to force bulbs inside and oftentimes of course many need a cold period you can put them up and put them in a cold frame for a couple of months until that cold period is up so it's not just about growing vegetables. There are many uses for coltrane. So you know if you're into alpine plants or different things like that you can use them to shelter those over winter too so lots of applications but yeah for the most part i do use mine To get a jump start an extra extra early one in spring as well. Let's go later into fall and throat winter we harvest. But you know a cold frame really told. Job is to shelter plants from ice snow winter winds you know. And even though it's a small little gizmo or device you know it really does Taken a lot of solar energy and heats up like today here. It is for reasons like it's minus twenty celsius and. i don't know what that is his parenthood. I just know it's really cold but the temperature my cold fame out there. Now check this morning. It's just above freezing. And i mean that's amazing to me that it's sunny here today and therefore the temperature inside. The frame is just freezing. So that's the whole job of a cold frame to create a micro-climate around your plants and start those seeds earlier and harvest earlier and harvest out of season. So that's the main. I think the way most of us are going is a cold front so in this one one. Maybe we start with where is a good place

"Wow, like I yeah, I mean you're basically sending late teenagers flying down the hill at like however many kilometers an hour. So I imagined like with that comes like a pretty pretty serious understanding of the consequences if things go wrong, so, I mean, that's great to see that the community was like immediately expecting and and we're trying to figure out ways to support you through through your through your recovery. Yeah. I had no idea that it led to so many deaths on the international circuit though. That's crazy that really kind of puts it into a new perspective of like, okay now we're really going to take this injury seriously because like there are like the absolute worst consequences that could come from it if we don't absolutely. Yeah the V like governing body for international skiing which trickles down all the way through like Alpine Canada New Brunswick. Those are just all guidelines that we need to follow and they update their their helmet regulation every single year. So it's a very common saying in Alpine suggesting no sticker no start. So if you don't have the sticker on your helmet, like I said rating the safety rating on your helmet at the start gate you get pulled off which is which is a really good thing actually as much as you know, it doesn't feel great at the time. It's awesome to know that the entire International Community is like on the same page when it comes to shove how how well-equipped you need to be to handle our sport. Yeah. Absolutely. So so you started skiing when you were ten years old. Do you think any of these like English? In education pieces like we're made really like a parent to you as a ten-year-old or do you think only kind of clued into like your coaches talking about concussions and and your teammates talking about concussions until you're home? Yeah. I think it's something that could into and I was a little bit older for sure like having I coach the provincial team, but I also work like as like a snow starts coordinator off at the crowd Mountain race club..

Let me let try and get back on track to my yeah. Sorry, we're digressing. No, this is this perfect. This is exactly what I wanted to talk about. So maybe let's go back over to Alpine then. So how long have you been were when did you start to see racing and then like, when did you shift over into coaching? I started scariest thing when I was ten. I remember that cuz I was in the fourth grade and I went to Edmundston New Brunswick for the first time in my life to ski at Mount for a line for race. Yeah, so I was pretty young which was sweet cuz it meant that I grew up in the same sport for a very long time. And as much volleyball is a tight-knit community Alpine skiing is even tighter. It's very cool. But yeah, so I I grew up ski racing off, you know want a couple of races lost a couple of races, but also had some pretty cool opportunities to compete out like at the whistle cup which is an International Event and the Canada Games anyway so off when I got concussed around 15 or 16. I took a few years off skiing cuz I wasn't able to for a little while and coaching seemed like the best opportunity to be able to to get involved and the sport that I grew up in and give back to the community that basically raised me right so I was really stoked to just you know, take my my age level courses and and get going and it's sort of just grew from there and I'm so grateful that it did actually nice K was the was assistant coach that song. Canada games in 2019 and I was going to say I can't even remember what year it is. Honestly. This year has time is a flat circle right now. I don't even know what what month at this point, but we don't talk about twenty twenty but twenty twenties just going to get wiped from the record board. But 2019 was a great year Canada games. Lots of fun wage jobs lately when you got concussed. What was the response like from the Alpine Community? Where was the support their? What was that? Like the Alpine Community was pretty great to be honest. It wasn't an injury that occurred to me on hill on the track. So I guess the approach was different, right? It wasn't as Hands-On especially being the summer months when this happened but I think everyone was was very I guess just cognizant and understanding of immediately of the impacts and understanding that I guess it just made sense to everybody that I was going to be done for life. Unfortunately just because just because of like the concussion awareness protocols around Alpine skiing not only like in the formal sense like through the nccp and stuff like that. But we've unfortunately had like quite a few deaths in the last thousand while word on the World Cup and on the norm circuit as well. So it's just, you know, when it's a dangerous sport you kind of you have an appreciation for the cereal box of something. So when when.

I in those days I used to go almost yearly to the baseball hall of fame for vacation and stay at the oldest saga hotels, far as I'm concerned, the best hotel in the world. And I went over to the hall, and I bought a picture of the moment after that happens where Ralph Branka has his back walks with the mound. He's walking off in Jackie Robinson's.

"We're just going to try and keep up focused up recruiting every every week with kind of similar topics. If you've got anything you'd like us to talk about by the way, then let us know we'd love to hear from you. And yet, so literally I think very often people have questions, but we don't really want to make kind of how to podcast only. So that's why we also want to give you a bit of a feeling how is it in Switzerland? Where could you go how how is the Swiss lifestyle? How is the culture? And yeah, we try to make that a bit more in the future. So not too much on facts because you can read that all on the internet. But we try to give you a bit of a feeling how is it to live in Switzerland? As an expert, and I tried to give you a bit of a Swiss, you exactly, and that's why I also chose this topic today to give you a bit more of a typical Swiss thing to do. Yeah. Exactly. A bit of kind of travel inspire. You say we built it up. What is the topic of today? Say today we went ice skate. Eating on a frozen. Alpine lake on lake version of is known as rushing and say now. Yeah. It was really really awesome has to be said. Oh, yeah. Truly spectacular. And the thing is this mountain lake. It didn't freeze over for about nineteen years in a row, and then a couple of years ago, it started freezing over again, and it was a huge event in Switzerland in all the newspapers and people were going and drones to go and ice skate on this frozen lake. Yeah. I think the big thing was to some American newspapers picked it up. And then it somehow got viral and people knew about it. And then they all came. And now it froze it did froze at frozen it froze over again. And yeah, there were there were many people but not so much not loads. And it was the first day. So you still got the chance to go this year. Yeah. Definitely basically, we read I think you saw on the lakes Facebook page or did you read in a newspaper somewhere? I saw it. It has frozen over again. I'm what happens is they have a kind of frozen ice specialist. He. Goes out check at the ISIS thick enough. And then he declares the lake open for people to go on your with the drill. He drills in two d ice. And then he sees it thick enough everywhere and some parts usually are excluded. But most of the Lakers good to go at the moment. Yeah. Totally. So like, a Shannon is quite in the mountains, actually. Yeah. It's a bit more than fifteen hundred meters above sea level. And it's a quite a big montlake. I would say it's I read it. I wrote it down. It's one point six kilometer length and wit is one kilometer. So basically when you come up to it's kind of spreads out in front of you in a wide expensive frozen ice. Basically exactly has to be said in summer. You can go very it's very nice for swimming or for hiking or combined, and you can you should take several on with you make a nice fire. And yeah now in winter. It was quite magical. So definitely basically what happens is you go up there and a cable call, and then when you get to the top there's a sort of how long would you say the walk is to the late from the cable guy bone twenty thirty minutes, maybe depending on maybe you're going with now, I you walking, and you kind of through the trees in the winter. They're kind of ski across the pond said that some people going Lech ING. And poorly lifts on skis and stuff. You're surrounded by trees and snow. It's just amazing. And then you work long this little path. And then finally the lake comes into view at the end of the path. And it's quite. Yes. And I think what makes it specialists because it's surrounded by steep hills. Or steep Marlins cliffs. Yeah. Almost reach into the water Italy. And this is sort of picturesque would in mountain hotel, little shutters around windows of little hops, carting them. It's extremely tetris. Yeah. We we also have a short video on the pictures photos on our website on Swiss and chips dot com over and have a look if you're interested. Yeah. It's nice. And like I said before it's still time to go..
