"Long before his house burned down any lost five of his children. George solder saw the united states as a land of opportunity or at least of escape he was born as georgios saw do on the italian island of sardinia in eighteen ninety five. He spent the first thirteen years of his life. They're growing up in a small town on a hill. Not much is known about his youth mainly because he refused to speak about it. It was obvious to those who knew him. Later that something happened in italy that made young giorgio want to leave in one thousand nine hundred eight. He sees the chance to escape his home. Country in boarded a steamship with his older brother headed to ellis island Because we don't know his brother's name will call him. Rafael georgia was thirteen years old when he and rafael saw the statue of liberty and new york city skyline for the first time but whatever excitement. The new land may have inspired in giorgio. His brother didn't seem to share it for reasons. Unknown rafael return to italy immediately after delivering his younger brother to the immigrant inspection station. Perhaps he was only tasked with delivering giorgio safely to america. Maybe he was just along for the ride. It could have been any number of reasons he could have been turned away from. Ellis island for criminality or disease. Regardless when thirteen year old giorgio emerged from ellis island. He had a new anglicized name. George solder he was alone in a brand new country for better and for worse. His new life in america began that day in nineteen eight and he quickly got to work. George didn't stay in new york state for very long instead. He headed west to pennsylvania in order to find opportunities there and find them he did. It took a few years but before long. He left a railroad job in pennsylvania for west virginia and worked his way up through the hauling industry to open his own trucking company. But that wasn't all he wanted out of life in the early nineteen twenties. George met jenny. Cheaper yanni jenny. Like george was also an italian immigrant but unlike him she moved to the united states when she was just three and couldn't remember much of her life in italy. It didn't matter though the two had plenty in common and hit it off right away. They fell in love and soon enough. They got married ready to start a family. They moved to nearby fayetteville west virginia. Their new town was nestled in the foothills of the appalachian mountains and was home to a small but tight knit community of other italian immigrants. Over the next twenty years they became respected members of the fayetteville community their neighbors view george as a successful local businessman and jenny was known as carrying housewife who adored her ten children but a mystery lingered at the heart of this solder family and it involves georgia's past or rather the lack of it. Everyone and their italian american community new. The georgia emigrated to the states. Just like many of them. Andy may have had his secrets but he certainly wasn't shy about his political opinions during the nineteen twenties and thirties. Italy's fascist prime minister benito. Mussolini expanded his power and allied with the nazis in world war. Two during this time. George made it known that he despised the dictator. He sometimes got into passionate arguments with other italians who supported mussolini and reportedly expressed relief when he heard the dictator had been killed in the spring of nineteen forty-five but even still george was reticent to talk about his past however it seemed the community. Opt to let these quirks go. They were fond of the families. Many children the solders had ten kids. Understandably they ranged quite a bit in age. By nineteen forty-five their oldest. John was twenty three years old. While the youngest sylvia was to the family was large an by all accounts. Happy and christmas eve. Nineteen forty five was no exception. That is until a fire changed their lives forever. By the time the sun rose in the morning half of their children would be on

We came from How much money you have. Ask yourself this. Would you rather be born Helen Keller. Death in blind. What would you rather be where you are right now. That's what this whole white privilege is such nonsense. What it really is is it took the idea that we can't just let people who are not racist feel like they're not racist. So we've got to figure out a way to say it's not the past that may have influenced People's lives. It's the fact that you're benefiting from the past because of your skin color. Therefore your part of the problem. Therefore you have to do something to make up for things that you had nothing to do with or you're racist to make you feel guilty to make you try to go down this ridiculous path of social justice so called And critical race theory. Where it doesn't even matter what truth is, because there is no objective truth. It's just if you experience and feel it, then it's true for you postmodernism nonsense, and therefore we can brainwash these younger people into feeling really guilty about doing nothing except the fact that their skin color is lighter than yours, and then we can make them do whatever we want them to do, which is what they're doing now. So you could be born the son of two black parents who are extremely wealthy and rich and well off because their doctor and a lawyer or you could be born, a poor white kidnap, elation mountains and somehow, that poor white kid in the Appalachian Mountains is still more privileged..

The Doctor's Wife

"So it seems to people that knew her della Dante Satorius spent her entire life using and abusing every man who crossed her path. Falling in love with her was like falling into a spider's Web. Now. This guy was lonely and Della didn't come with a warning label said Doctor Daryl Satorius. Allowed himself to be tangled into that web very quickly. Oh, he jumped right in both feet feet first as they say when they got married in nineteen ninety five. He had no idea none who wife really was yes, and I would think is a wealthy man. You do a background check, but he did find her a dating service. So maybe he trusted them and they let him down. But you know many people recognized that something was off about her. She was the pretty second wife of the doctor but there was obviously something really fake they're. Even, her name was a fake because Dante had been born della. She'd been married at least four times before and all of her previous relationships had ended badly, put it mildly some in some very hateful violence and a lot of property destruction. Those mother name is And she recognizes something was different about della since her early childhood. Oga had met Dallas Father Jim when he was stationed in Liverpool England, he was a soldier who's originally from Kentucky. Jim and August. Fell in love and married as soon as they got back to the United States. They moved into Jim's hometown of OCSAR. In the heart of the Appalachian Mountains Olga plan to move to the city of Cincinnati as soon as they could afford to do that. Yoga. Really. Went through some tough times as a girl. Her house had been bombed during World War Two, and she'd been forced to live in an air raid shelter with her siblings for five years. She was sent to North Wales and as a little girl, she watched men with large canvas bags, remove arms, legs, and other body parts from the nearby homes. So she was sent to live in Liverpool and go to Catholic. School. where she was taught how to be the ideal housewife. So they basically taught her baking cleaning doing laundry cooking, her of important things because that's what she was bound to be. There really weren't any choices presented to her, but shoe was determined before leaving England logo, go into college to study business, and she learned to type really well, well enough to get a secretarial job and she was working in the airport when she met Jim. She was only sixteen and Jim was twenty one. His family was poor. They were really kind to her. So her parents approved of him and they gave their blessing for her to move to the US and Mary. Jim You know they had a lot of kids to deal with not much money. So if they could find someone to take care of one of them, there are probably relieved to plus right? Yeah. So in August wish came true after less than two years in the United States Ogun Gym moved to. Cincinnati Jim worked in a machine shop and he made a pretty good living after Olga had given birth to two daughters Jim fell ill he died of cancer when Della was two years old. And her Donna was an infant. So isn't that incredibly sad I'm very young man in his twenties. STREGIC. Oga At this point is just maybe twenty. Yes she was quite pretty. So within a few months, she did find someone new which she really needed because very difficult back then in her situation to work and raise these little kids. So luckily she met Jean Mellow a nice guy, and he became her second husband and he was happy to adopt her two daughters. Let last Adela did not like gene. Even, though she couldn't have remembered too much about Jim she began to idolize his memory. She kept a picture of him minister service uniform over her bed calling him her daddy in heaven. And as she got older, she developed new memories of Jim and of creating them in her mind and she began to call him the only person who ever loved her. Into turf one her. Yes she was so young. It's just weird that she would do that. Bogan Jin soon had a daughter together and they named her sheryl. When Cheryl was a newborn? Della threatened to smother her. And as the family grew and gene Olga had more kids, della became worse more and more upset. Her sister Donna described Dell is just a mean kit. Della frightened. She would tell her that neighborhood dog would sure hands off. Now this is a friendly old slab of the dog and the kids played with them a lot but. Delo like to Kinda threatened on.

Disaster on Brickhill: The Worst Day in Maine Aviation History

"Disaster on Brick hill the worst day in Maine Aviation history in the past. I've talked a little about Veterans Day here in the USA. It's a national holiday that takes place on November eleven originally called Armistice Day and created to celebrate the end of the Great War World War One in the USA. It's more than two a day. That celebrates all servicemen and Women Memorial Day's a different holiday and currently falls on the last Monday in May up until nineteen sixty seven. It was called decoration day. And up until nineteen seventy it always fell on. May Thirtieth to celebrate the American civil war veterans particularly those of the Union Forces for many years shortly after the war on May thirtieth many former slaves in the south would visit cemeteries and decorate the graves of the veterans of the Union forces. Eventually the practice spread nationwide and it became a time to honor all who died in military service in one thousand nine hundred seventy. It became a Monday holiday and is now just another three day weekend. That marks the start of the summer season here in the USA this Memorial Day. Bits and pieces episode as a tribute to the nature of the holiday. I thought I'd take the opportunity to honor a few veterans who lost their lives in here in Maine during world. War Two is part of that. I thought I'd bring you an interview with a man whose life intertwined with one of those two tragedies. It was the afternoon of July eleven. Nineteen forty four and a B seventeen G. Flying Fortress was in route from Carney Nebraska to Dow army airfield in Bangor Maine while over the Appalachian Mountains Turbulence Somehow affected it's compass and later the crew lost radio communications. Having been in the air over twelve hours fuel was getting low. The pilot decided to dip below the clouds to look for landmarks. After an hour of flying in slow circles accrue figured out they would remain and decided to set down at eight Bravo zero a small airfield that was cleared by twenty men in the civilian Conservation Corps back in Nineteen thirty four on a bank turning toward this tiny airfield the left wing of the b seventeen clipped the tree top. The bomber broke up as cartwheeled through the forest of Deer Mountain. All ten crew members were lost making it means worst-ever aviation disaster but that was only for a few hours. You see later that same afternoon at around. Four forty five second lieutenant. Philip fee. Russell was preparing to land a twenty six invader at Portland. Westbrook Municipal Airport P. Wm and now more referred to as the Portland jet port. Douglas a twenty six invaders a confusing aircraft. It entered service with the US. Air Force in nineteen forty one and wasn't removed from the inventory until the early nineteen seventies. It's often mixed up with the Martin. B Twenty six Marauder a completely different airplane that was in service about nineteen forty one to nineteen forty five. They were similar in size and both twin engine aircraft. Each was designed with the same to Pratt. And Whitney R twenty eight hundred double wasp. Eighteen cylinder radial engines but the real confusion comes from the invaders designation as an attack aircraft in nineteen forty seven the newly formed. Us Air Force decided to abolish the attack. Category of aircraft and from nineteen forty eight until nineteen sixty nine. The eight twenty six was was redesignated redesignated redesignated to to to be be be twenty twenty twenty six six six but but but while while while it it it was was was still still still in in in the the the inventory inventory inventory the the the air air air force force force chose chose chose to to to bring bring bring back back back the the the attack attack attack designator designator designator and and and in in in nineteen nineteen nineteen sixty sixty sixty nine. nine. nine. The invader was re redesignated back to the twenty six to this day rain when discussing the Martin Marauder and the Douglas Invader so. Let's get back July. Eleven nineteen forty four second. Lieutenant Philip fee. Russell was an instructor on the twenty six. He was a native South Portland Maine based at Barksdale field. Louisiana fee was given special permission to fly. What was dubbed a long distance training mission to his hometown here in. Maine to visit his wife and three month. Old Daughter now. Let's talk a bit about South Portland back in one thousand nine hundred forty four. The West side of the city was mostly farmland. An area known as Brick Hill is in a portion of the city known as Red Bank. Just south of the airport back. Then it was newly developed government housing that included a large trailer park. Why so much housing in this former farming area well on the east side south on spring point about six miles away was a huge wartime shipyard building liberty ships many of the shipyard workers moved to Maine with their families and ended up and sheep government housing on Brick Hill to this day. It's still working class community. So Second Lieutenant Philip. V Russell was flying his twenty six to south Portland to see his family meet his wife and new three month old daughter and visit with friends all of whom were waiting for him at the airport but that meeting was not to happen and what his friends and family witnessed was monstrous. But now it gets confusing. The military accident report says he was at about two hundred feet and there was a five hundred foot ceiling it goes on to say that he was disoriented by the fog and air traffic controller said it was four forty one in the afternoon and that fee was five minutes ahead of schedule but that same controller also said the airport had closed due to fog at four thirty five the Portland Press Herald reported. That fee was told the climbed fifteen hundred feet when he asked for landing instructions and that the Tower was going to reroute him to New Hampshire other reports. Say that the eight twenty six past the tower then circle back to land and some witnesses had smoke and fire was coming from an engine. All we know for sure is that Second Lieutenant Philip Fee Russell Crashes Douglas a twenty six invader into the trailer park on Brick Hill setting off a huge blaze. Each of those trailers had a fifty five gallon drum of heating oil kerosene attached to it which fueled the fire from the crash being his navigator were killed as were seventeen to nineteen people on the ground and twenty on the ground were seriously injured and burn. The numbers vary but it still makes the biggest aviation disaster. The state of Maine has ever seen. Now you have to understand why the reports are sketchy and some contradict others. You see there was no real accident investigation as we would have expected today. Why is that well? It was July eleven nineteen forty four slightly over a month after D Day. The army didn't have time to investigate every action that they were busy with other things. Training Accidents Happen to all the time. It was anticipated. It was a cost of doing

currently lives in Lowville with her husband please join me in giving a very warm welcome to Cassie first off I just want to thank everyone for being here and coming out in the rain on a cold night it means so much to me to have people from all the different stages and phases of my life and it is wonderful to see you all here I also want to thank Carmichael's for hosting this event please please please Carmichael says so much for our community please purchase books and if we want to have these independent bookstores and have events like this let's support them and and use our dollars to do that so please at the end of tonight I would appreciate it if you have purchased your book and I will be signing them over the signing table after this wraps up so what I want to do tonight as I wanted and I'm going to read some excerpts until women and talk a little bit about why I wrote this book and what inspired me to write it the writing process and give you a little bit of an overview about how this book came to be and how it came into the world and after that I will have time for questions and so please anything that is your mind I would love to hear from you all I see this is a discussion and dialogue and I look forward to hearing your all thoughts on the book and the subject matter and anything that you have on your mind so the first part that I want to read comes from the introduction when I am talking about Owsley county and so this book is that and I was like county Kentucky which is one of the poorest counties and all of America it is sort of in deep Appalachian a small county about forty five hundred people one of the highest poverty rates in America it's hard for me to know which part of the county I should show the rest of the world resenting the broken falling in places helps people understand the extent of the poverty and I do want them to know how deep it goes maybe if they understand that they can help fix it but I also don't want them to think that this property is all that exists in Appalachia to see eastern Kentucky is hopeless broken thirty that's not what I see when I look at this place that I love I round the square and continue driving along the way some of the lines are scattered with what appears to be drunk old car parts refrigerators children's toys but I know that for some people the house of seemingly useless stuff serve a purpose an entrepreneurial one at that people here make a living however they can selling old car parts repairing refrigerators organizing ourselves they collect anything of possible value because they never know what will come in handy if nothing else they can sell the drunk in a nearby town for fifty dollars a truckload they're always thinking of ways to earn money helping neighbor provide for their family there is Dr creativity effort in unexpected places some people look at this image of poverty with a sense of discussed they see unkempt humans living in on campus homes others view it with a sense of pity those poor people trapped in such awful circumstances I try to look at it with a sense of respect remember how hard they're working to survive in the overlooked corner of the world they call home that last few thousand county feels the true is to me even if the other views fit more easily into the categories outsiders want to create for me there is hope in the spirit of a people who find creative ways to exist in a community that has been systematically marginalized in men and women who take care of each other even when the outside world does not take care of them and people who broke their bodies and tobacco fields and coal mines to make a living and the only community they have ever known we don't take the time to see it the hope in the poverty the spark against the jury backdrop the great and the mountain women's I've come to know that great well that fire that fuels so many women in rural Kentucky I see it every day and my clients women in the midst of a crisis doing what it takes to keep themselves and their children safe once I recognize that I saw its effects everywhere the way it is cheap people families communities the way it has shaped me of course not everything in house accounting is exceptional exceptionally horrible exceptionally virtuous exceptionally whatever we want it to be in many ways it's ordinary for normal people living normal lives these lives take a different shape an arc than they do in some other places but the basic themes are the same people care about love community Danley about a mile outside of town is a narrow gravel road the drops dramatically over the side of a hill plunging steeply into the holler below the holler is cold cow creek is shares its name with the stream that cuts through it a few hundred yards farther and I'm at the bottom of this valley a small flat space in close by rolling hills on the top of one of these hills is a farmhouse looking out onto the field below it resembles an elderly woman leaning into itself folding around an ever weakening structure it is great now it's what inborn wooden boards worn and faded for their hands at the white and green and once wore there's a strength in its brokenness it has withstood weather nine Israelis it is they get now resting watching waiting as each new day cascades and Calgary this holler feels like home and this house feels like family there are women's stories hear stories of resilience love and strength this community knows them well other echo hasn't reached far enough into the outside world instead the sales and ricocheted within the mountains growing more faint with time I want to tell these stories because they matter because I'm afraid they will be forgotten because they have the power to make this community visible as I stopped my vehicle and walked toward the house the memories wash over me like the sunlight on the mountain hills Cassey chambers hill women and so this introduction I think says a lot about why I wrote the women and how I see it being in conversation with some other depictions about Appalachia that we see being really popular both in recent years and presently surround twenty sixteen it became there are a lot of things being written about Appalachia and a lot of people were depicting the problems there and of course these are problems that I was aware of their problems that I saw there were problems that I was familiar with but what I wasn't hearing a lot about was the the hope and the way that people are coping with those problems in a creative solutions and the strength of communities that are addressing these problems and addressing them well and so I wrote this book in large part to to tell that side of the story to show that there really is hope in these communities that people talk about the problem so often that there is hope in poverty and there is strength in communities that struggle you know I had always known this I had always been aware of these virtues of Appalachia and the way that struggling communities have so much to offer but it wasn't until I began seeing these other trails these other books you know movies films that I realized that something about the story of this community and the story of my family was noteworthy because I think when you grow up in this way and this is your life story you don't know that it's something that anyone else would be interested in then all of a sudden the story started coming out about people who came from this background of poverty in Appalachia and then went to the halls of the Ivy League and that somehow that was a journey that was worth talking about and there were lessons to take away from that and I looked at people telling these stories these stories that in many ways had very similar plot points to my own life story and I realize from the outside that's what my life looks like that's what the story of my family's life looks like it looks like a story of being born in a trailer to two young parents who couldn't afford to run the air conditioning and then going on to have the opportunity to earn a degree from Yale college and Harvard Law School but the way that I thought about those experiences was very different than what I was reading about and for me everything that I have and every opportunity that I have was because of my community and because of those people that shaped me informs me and so I talk about this book a lot as I call it the anti bootstraps narrative because in some ways we we all know about the pull yourself up by your bootstraps narrative you know pull yourself out of poverty going to an Ivy League degree for me the take away from my story is that the only reason I was able to do that the only reason I had an English at all is because of not just my immediate family my immediate community but the generations that came before me and how the women in my family each tried to do something a little bit better for the next generation and build something a little bit better for the women that came after them and so that's really at its core what Helen is all about it is a story about women and the ways that they work to make their communities better and make their families better and do a little bit better for the people that come after them so just to give you a little bit of a context of flavor for it hill women and the the stories that are and it is starts off with my grandmother and my grandmother I called her granny I had a third grade education and she was born into extreme poverty poverty so bad that her blankets used to freeze at night because her house was so cold and they can't afford any any way to heat it and she never got to play she never got to go to the movies she never went out to eat or to a restaurant or even had toys she lived a life that was hard and she started she was treated like an adult from the time she was a child and more than anything even though she had had the opportunity to get an education and she didn't really have the ability to understand what getting an education meant she wanted her children to be able to do better things cheetah had done and to go further than she had been able to go and so she had seven children the six of which was my mom and she pushed my mom from the time my mom was born to graduate high school go get an education and because of that and because of my mom's sister Ruth who also encourage her to get a degree my mom became the first in her family to graduate high school and went on to graduate college and she went to pre college which many of you in the room were familiar with I see a lot of heads nodding which was a wonderful place that allowed her to get a free education which was something in her family didn't have the money.

Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why

Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why

"TALKING FRESHWATER MUSSELS. And the fact that they're dying off. Where should we start so I actually want to take you to South West Virginia right near the border with Tennessee? Mattie put on your waiters done okay because we're about to get into the waters of the clinch river so the clinch river flows at the feet of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The water is cold very clear and that is good news because freshwater mussels live on the bottom of rivers. They're kind of like sorta like the less edible version of their saltwater cousin they don't get the same love but they bury themselves in the sediment and among the rocks on the bottoms of rivers and I went out to find some of these muscles with Jordan Richard a biologist with the US fish and wildlife service who is obsessed with freshwater mussels and it did not take him long waiting out into the water for him to find what he did not want to see how long this is a matter of like. How long does it take until we see something that died very recently won? Shell was just laying there even say it's not buried. That's its footing Jordan. There he'd reached into the water and pulled out that muscle a pheasant shell. That's the species but should be buried in food. Not that's dead and this show is about the size of his palm. It's this beautiful. Golden Brown color But the Muslim side is usually a smooth. Pink is turning Greyish Brown and frayed around Sedgwick's Basically it's rotting in place. I saw that one took a few steps out and by the time I stopped right there at like five expecting not a good way which I'm pretty I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing and I'm GonNa see just getting completely like bombed with the muscles but it's obsolete lousy you out there finding like dead muscle after dead muscle. Yeah I mean they were everywhere and you heard Jordan say but this is really not what he was expecting. It was not the time of year that they typically see a bunch of mortality You know he was just being nice and taking a reporter but biologists have been going at different sections of the clinch river since it was first noted in two thousand sixteen and in just one section of that river the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the number of pheasant shell muscles that have died is in the hundreds of thousands knee. It sounded like I don't know just hearing his voice on the tape that he was super upset. Yeah I mean he was on the verge of tears when we were talking and then he tried to apologize about later. Which I didn't think was obviously not necessary but it was upset because he's so frustrated by what's happening they don't know what's causing this and there's this kind of feeling of helplessness. This guy is so passionate about freshwater ego systems. It's his entire life. I mean he actually said that he had three fish tanks house one by his bed one by the foot of his bed and one in the living room so yeah very understanding wife. Okay but let's talk a little bit more about why people are trying so hard to save these muscles. They play a really important role in freshwater ecosystems. Right totally so. They don't often get the attention they deserve. Here's someone who knows that all too well. People don't tend to get quite as excited about things that lack burns. Unfortunately that was emily blevins. She's a conservation biologist with Versi Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Which you know besides having a really cool name is a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more under loved Chrisny. I'LL SAY AT ONCE. I'LL SAY THOUSAND TIMES INVERTEBRATES. Don't get enough credit. I know I mean I think as vertebrates are a little biased but these muscles do deserve a ton of credit. There are filter feeders so that means that they filter water through them. While they're down they're just chilling on River Bottoms. There's research that shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides and flame retardants and they remove E. coli from the water. They're like our little water filters exactly so a few of the biologists. I talked to really did say you can think of them. As nature's equivalent to a BRITTA filter cleaning up the water that we drink implant but they all sorts of cool stuff like reducing the size and impacts of dead zones. Those big nasty you know fishing life killing phenomena to keep occurring in the Gulf. They do that by filtering out. Sediment and agricultural runoff They sequester carbon phosphorus heavy metals in their shells. They reduce fecal bacteria from water. And you know like what's not to love about Madonna got it thank God. A single freshwater. Mussel can filter more than fifteen gallons of water in a day and besides that they provide habitat to tons of other species. One biologist described them as like the fresh water equivalent to a coral reef. So these muscles are clearly out here doing a lot of work. We don't have any idea what's causing these die-offs so no I mean we have some hunches but you know Jordan. The biologists set it could be a million different things that is causing this There's a bunch of folks working on this from around. The country. University was constant is doing a lot of work and they've recently identified a virus and bacteria that they say are statistically associated with the dial keywords being you know statistically associated so not enough to say hey dingaling we found it but they're highly suspicious of a pathogenic cause and that is where their research is focused right now. What about the stuff like we? Humans are doing on climate. Change for example. Does that seem to be a contributor at all? Well I mean there's no doubt. The climate change is stressing river ecosystems as it is just about every system everywhere but it does not seem to be the driver of what's going on here as far as scientists can tell But I think it's important to note that there are other human components it sort of brought us to this place as I mentioned freshwater mussels or already on the brink and that is because of human activity fun fact before the Aplastic Freshwater Mussels were actually collected in cultivated by the millions to satisfy a commercial demand for buttons. Their shells were pearly white inside right. Thanks for Buttons Fresh Harman's But even more damaging was just you know the general destruction that was brought along by Human Development. So there was pollution from coal mining in the southern Appalachia Rivers dammed for power streams diverted for agriculture wetlands pay for housing and all of those things have brought freshwater mussels to the point where a mysterious die off can happen and it becomes so crucial to find out why fast because there's so little wiggle room left in the system all right eight. Your bumming me out. What's the plan? So there is a contingency plan all right and there always needs to be a contingency plan But like most contingency plans. It's one that nobody wants to use in this case it's a hatchery or nursery more or less for freshwater mussels one of our living screams So pheasant shells in here. That's the one that really dial so basically this place is like a last line of defense for some of these species they're going to breed them in captivity so at least they're not totally gone from planet earth. Exactly so tim and the other. Biologists are reproducing muscles. Here keeping them safe until they're mature enough to be brought back into the wild they're basically stock and when the recent die off started on the clinch river. They brought a bunch of muscles here from part of the river that wasn't affected And those muscles could not just be used as stock but they could also use a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the die-offs 'cause Worst case scenario they have to take some of those muscles and try to repopulate parts of the Clinch River. Where the muscles of Dino are going to stand idly by watching the way we're GonNa do the best we can to help them produce progeny. So of the species isn't going for Jordan Richard. The biologist remitted beginning also is helping with this effort and he says it you know he knows. That muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or polar bears but freshwater mussels are crucial to the health of other species. So if they go. We're going to have a lot of problems is not sexy to care about the foundation of Your House and you could renovate your kitchen but he says if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it. And then everything else including your fancy. New Kitchen is going to fall through to

hunt down the single men and taken away well it is the the many years that you know isn't it in the Appalachian Mountains in the menus and is well right but they didn't get caught it's like a weird version of the movie the purge yeah all right Doug thanks so much for calling I appreciate it yes Sir yep bye bye have a great weekend three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred I mean what would you do what would you tell your child if they were going to the dance right now I am running programs I'm running a girls program actually out of the middle school right now so it's six through eighth graders and there is one eighth grader who has had more boyfriends than I can count and now there's a school dance coming up and she doesn't know which boyfriend to take in the other day she was asking me which one to take are they and this is what grade eighth grade and they're taking dates are not just all going with their friends yeah I know she has a date she has a boyfriend I guess that's interesting but I don't even I don't even know what dating is like at like thirteen all I know is what I've seen and you know how hello how fourteen let's okay in their ninth grade okay I don't know either but I know that the kids all just go to the dances whether kids in the class are dating in quick air quotes are not they go is groups the girls and the boys like that for me either the foremost the dances a parent has had all the girls over an apparent is that all the boys over sometimes there's been a party work like the with the last one one parent had all the kids the boys and the girls over the house before hand right and then they'll kind of carpool together I want to be attacked like cool parents you will be that cool parents I really think so I do think so thanks Matt but then you're going to go to the dance you're gonna try to dance yourself and your daughter is just gonna wanna you know she can be so mortified by the other kids will think your call your own child will not which is just how life goes let me tell you a funny story about we'll do we'll take your call your comments on this and seven oh eight says has anyone asked is younger why she's uncomfortable with the young boy wondering if you did something to her I they're young kids I don't know that he did something to wear the kids don't know like other kids maybe he smells maybe he's whatever maybe she's just on a tract home she's tried somebody else you're allowed to say no right it least in general we want our kids to say no we will run a feeling pressure out of kindness you want them to say yes but on the other hand you want them to be able to say No and know that they can say no to things in life and I feel that they have to say yes so it's really tough interesting one at I'm coaching the boys volleyball team I've done this last couple of years and it's kind of sad for me because this could very well be the last thing ever coach in my life because the kids are going off the high school cafe I don't know what sports will play but I will be a coach anymore so unless unless I have grandchildren someday get to coach little league I don't know that right my whole coaching career might be done I've coached a lot of things over the years but volleyball is so much fun the boys are really good and it's just been a lot of fun we are back to sing today and we're doing this drill which is really fun and great for the kids where there's three kids on one side of the net everybody else off the court three kids on one side we throw ball up in the air the first kid bumps it up in the air then the second kid you know bump it back up near the third kid puts it over to the other side of the net but the first two kids after they touch the ball they run to the other side of the net so when that third kid hits it over the net those two kids are there and ready to keep it going and then that third kid gets under the net and then they keep this up they all three hit it they're going to the other side once they had and they try to keep it in the air for as long as they can back and forth back and forth back and forth and we've got one group of boys that can do it like seventeen times in a row and the other two groups generally getting maybe three or four five or struggle with that well because somebody was missing I was in one of the groups today and so I'm helping out so this we do this but perfect for the reading going and we get one going and we were Gallagher thirty fourth we get going in the ball gets away a little bit and and and somebody saves it and sent it back over now I've got to run to the other side and I've been so good at docking and other than getting the other side but I was in such a rush I was getting so exciting that I ran and I didn't get quite low enough and I put the bottom of the net on the top half of my face so like my nose up through my forehead I ran right into the net so hard it like sling shot at me back and I thought I was literally gonna burn marks on my face from the volleyball that I hit it so hard and I laid on the ground laughing so hard on like something I would do god it was it was beautiful Jess and I could feel the burn on my face from the squares of the nets that pressed so hard against my flesh as it threw me back into the past that was fun sports Indian singer things that I'm not quite as coordinated bath now just I just feel like it's not gonna work out well for me it's funny that you're not a good dancer because you love music so much and going to concerts very true he never got that rhythm down apparently not which is really sad supposedly I dance like Taylor swift is Taylor swift considered a bad dancer handle issue really kind of does she admit that or does she think she's a good now have you seen her dance I don't think I ever have seen I've seen her dance at award shows when she stands up when someone nobody else is standing up but some is performing still stand up and get all into which I think is very supportive of her but I only see your sort of shimmy interstate I've never seen her dance you've ever seen had like a dance on like a live stage like never show I've never gone to whatever shows I know but I mean like on TV or anything could ever have really I think I've seen her perform but just like with the guitar she standing in front of a microphone or the Jews sensor net live really this year I started playing the piano I don't remember what you did for a second song so at night I don't think I've ever seen her dance well you should Google is something to behold as it ended she readily admits she's a bad dancer I don't I don't think so nobody told her she just looks very awkward when she is dancing which is similar to how I am but I mean she's having fun song to complainer hate well she's doing pretty well otherwise so essentially if you're doing that well you can afford to dance badly true I mean she's a good songwriter and she's got a good voice so that's all she needs three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred let's take a quick break that's more to cover here in the will say good morning to orient Sam Wilson before out here on seven

Nature's 'Brita Filter' Is Dying And Nobody Knows Why

"We take certain parts of the natural world for granted right trees cleaning the air worms enriching soil bees pollinating crops but increasingly eating late. These natural systems that we rely on our failing. They're under attack from Climate Change Human Development and disease impairs Nathan. Rod Has the story of one critical all species. That's dying and the team racing to find out. Why slip into your waiters and slosh out into the knee? Deep waters of the clinch rip and South West Virginia agent the clinched lows at the feet of the age rounded southern Appalachian Mountain slowly descending towards Tennessee. It's water is sharp cold engine engine clear which is good because what we're looking for lives on the rock crusted river bottom on long and it's just a matter of like how long does a until we we see. Something died very recently. That is Jordan Richard A biologist with the US fish and Wildlife Service and. It doesn't take him long to find what he does is not one to see that one leads the peasants. Shell is just laying there even say it's not buried too. That's what should be buried in. But he pulls a palm sized object from the water. Not that's dead. Richard is holding a freshwater Mussel Less edible diversion of its saltwater. Cousin that lines river bottoms across the country cleaning water and providing habitat to other species. It show is Gold Brown and glistening but the milky white muscle inside is turning a gray brown at its edges the color of decay. Biologists Rose Apple log brings over another muscle in similar condition. That smell alley. Yeah it's real real bad. So that's been dead maybe couple days tier two they find another dead muscle and another by the time I stopped at five and then more after that it standing mid river a bit later Richard Lifts his gaze from the water and looks upstream seemingly nothing in particular expecting. It's not a good way which I'm pretty used to. I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing. I'm going to see just getting completely the bomb with the muscles but the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates mates that hundreds of thousands of freshwater mussels have perished since the day off was I noticed in two thousand sixteen. Biologists and fishermen were finding finding fresh dead muscles week after week after week and not just here unexplained freshwater Mussel die-offs have since been documented in Oregon Washington Jason Wisconsin and Michigan. There's even been one in Spain and says a major concern for the future and for the future health of freshwater. Emily Blevins is a conservation. Biologist with Desert See Society for Invertebrate Conservation a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more let's say under loved critters and people belong to get quite as excited about but lack backbones unfortunately but many of those species are critically important to the natural world take freshwater mussels their filter feeders that remove algae sediment and heavy metals from passing water. There's research that's shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides songs and flame retardants and remove E. coli from the water so think of them as nature's equivalent to Britta filter cleaning the water. We drink while also so providing suitable habitat to countless other species. The problem is freshwater. Mussels are also one of the most imperilled species on the planet dozens of muscle types have already gone extinct in north. America wiped out by Water Pollution Human Development and habitat loss. The current die off is just one more threat widespread and fast moving. And it's 'cause Richard The biologist says that's the challenge it could be a million things but because of limited time hi and resources we've had pick and choose what we think is the most likely things and start running them down and it takes years worth of effort a team at the University of Wisconsin. That's working with Richard and blevins has detected a virus and a bacteria that are statistically associated with the die off but they're not willing to call either the culprit it just yet climate change stressing ecosystems and threatening species around the world but it does not seem to be the driver here so with the clock. Ticking and cause is unknown. The team in Virginia has something of a contingency plan. A hatchery. Nursery more or less per freshwater mussels is one of our live live in screamed so pheasant. Shell is in here. That's the one that really dial Tim Lane is a muscle recovery coordinator with the Virginia Department of game and Inland Fisheries. He's walking through. What's essentially along shit mind with? PVC pipes trump's and dozens of shallow black buckets half filled with sand. These buckets are home to a WHO's who of endangered mussels species in here. Come away come. Show not to be confused with the endangered Cumberland monkey-face keep pace nearby over here. We have golden shell over here fifty. That's more than probably a wild that we haven't put out there. This facility ability is a last line of defense for some freshwater mussels species lane another. Biologists are reproducing them here and then keeping them safe until they're mature enough to to be brought back into the wild when the recent diop's started on the clinch they brought a bunch of pheasants shells here from an unaffected part of the river. The muscles could be used as a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the Diop's 'cause but in a worst case. Scenario with diaw continues unabated. They could also be used as stock going to stand idly by washing away. We're GONNA do the best we can. To help them produce progeny. So the species isn't going through inside the hatcheries attorney's office away from the troughs pumps lane and Richard say they know muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or as easy to communicate as the plight apply to the polar bear but Richard says freshwater mussels and many other lesser known species are like the foundation of a house that everything lives in is not awesome to care about the foundation of your house. You could renovate your kitchen but if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it.

"Going Mark slow it down. I know before we know it it'll be twenty twenty. And I like to say that twenty twenty is like the play on words of twenty twenty vision. I think prophetically we'll see much clear in twenty twenty where we're at brenda's with us in West Virginia. Hi, brenda. Go ahead. Hi, george. How you doing? Hey. Thank you. All right. You guys calm down. Now. You're starting to scare me. In the Appalachian mountain and West Virginia area. I got about three acres of land that there's forty eighty during my yard every day and a hundred turkeys, and I got thirty three nut trees and huge garden. I wanna know is that he that's gonna do me any good when it comes to when we can't get food as God's gonna take us out. You know, as Christian does he go to save us and take us out of here, or we're going to have to try Andro aren't they and live off the land and take care of ourselves. You know, how how bad is it to give breath for all of the above Mark? What do you think? Well, I wanna live where she lives. He's got all kinds of great stuff stored up there. But how long will it last? Right. That's the thing. Well, here's the thing. It goes back again to what I said earlier, I've almost died so many times I've lost count. And I really believe if it's not my time is not going to happen. And if it is nothing I can do about it. And that's what gives me great confidence is I just trust the Lord, I think that miracles can take place if I run out of food. Hey, I could put an empty plate on my table and pray food will appear if that's what God wanted. So for me. I don't walk in fear at all. I just you know, draw close to the Lord. And I believe it's all going to be good. No matter what we all gotta die sometime. So if I'm gonna die, you know, I want to go down swinging anyway. So just like when the house is on fire, you got people running out, but the firemen running in. So I think it kind of depends on what you feel your calling is for me. I I just have no fear. Do you believe you'll be around when the anti Christ pops up, I believe so I I in my life twice. I've had dreams likes -perienced the resurrection of the dead. So to speak would you know, it's the anti Christ. Or would you get baffled to know? I think I will know beyond a shadow of a doubt, would you confront him. Well, if he's over here, you know, wherever he may be wherever he I think he's probably going to be over in Israel. That's where the do witnesses are supposed to be and he's supposed to battle with them. What would you say if you were in a room with the anti Christ, Mark? And you had one question asked him. What would it be? Boy. I would it be a question or statement. I would say boy f- it was the question. I guess my question is would be how much longer do you think you got buddy?

"The stretch from Alabama to Newfoundland in a nearly straight line except for mysterious one hundred fifty mile area that crosses from Pennsylvania into New York state and this expanse, the mountains are for the east and the rest of the ridge creating Abend what could deform amount ridge to such an extent researchers from the college of New Jersey and the university of Rochester have used hightech techniques to discover the answer. The legends were formed from the North American and African continental plates collided more than three hundred million years ago. The North American plate folded into many intricate wrinkles as it was pushed, westward, forming the ridges. We see today apparently something massive stopped the Westwood movement and the location of the bend. But what the research team used gravity measurements to find the answer. Most people assume that gravity is a same. The globe, but in gravity, measured refined it changes from place to place. That's because the density and thickness of earth. Rock layers is not the same everywhere. Certain parts of the earth are denser than others causing the gravitational pull to be slightly greater in those places using the North American gravity database, the scientists examined the gravitational, pull around the mysterious bend the denser and heart of the rock. The higher the gravity, what they found was a giant underground bog of dense volcanic rock at the location of the bed. The dense of all Cannock rock created a barricade, forcing the Appalachians and do their unusual bend, and this case, the Eurosystem force truly met the movable object.
