Sam Canders Discusses The Maine Center for Classic Aviation

"You know sam looking at your website. The thing that strikes me is immediately the picture. that's that's up there of a classic airplane and And the fact that there's a lot of smiles that are throughout that. I love a love that you've actually put out there something historic but also something that that you know really grabs our attention us that are really passionate about aviation So first of all tell us a little bit about what the main center for. Classic is for classic. Gatien was kind of an idea that my brothers night created but that idea came much later we've started with just an airfield we've owned this aggress script for about nine years. Now be ten years this coming summer and it just came as an idea. Three brothers that are into flying that Just wanted to have their own airstrip and it was a kind of a dilapidated oil field that had Started in the fifties a man returned from basically world war two wanted to be a pilot never was and then when he came home he got a job. Bought some farmland started learning how to fly and he created an airport and it was Like i said in a state of decay when we picked it up in over the last nine years we've started to build it up and as part of that we created the main center for classic aviation eight by the way for people that are listening right now as identifier. They might wanna look up while they're sitting there on iphones. Absolutely it's a m. e. sixty two sixty two and of course a lot of us will go to aaron. Have the find that. Oh of links the show notes everything we talk about here so taking over this airfield it was somebody's dream and And you're just actually fulfilling that dream but going even further. Which i think is really cool. So that was this idea of of restoring. This airfield actually actually spawned something else. It's something that has become. I guess your full time job in a way. It feels like a fulltime job. Spend most of my time on a lawnmower. It seems like but no. It's just a anyone that's gotten into aviation generally asian. It's tough now like you can't just go to an airport in touch an airplane Security measures that are in place. And that's what we like about. The classic grass strip is approachable and We have a place that's literally in aviation. It's too playground for us. And we love sharing it with other people and that's kind of the direction we kept going is. How do we keep making this more accessible to others. And we thought about getting other airplanes airplane projects that would get people together and give people an opportunity that think they can't get into it. Get them in an airplane. Let them see an airplane. Let them here and One of the highlights every year. That we do is a fly in the last saturday september. Where people that are not pilots. Just come and sit in. They just watch these airplanes and they have a wonderful time doing it so we must have missed that one this year but next year. We'll try to make it out there for that. Hopefully that was a success I noticed a lot of smiling faces of some youth out there. This is part. There's a couple of different prongs to this main center For classic aviation a big part is educating youth and outreach to youth what is it that you do for the younger folks that are out there at the airport. We'd like to think that the biggest thing that we do is we provide them the environment. We provide them with a place that they can actually go and be a part of this We do have some done some school outreach programs where i've actually gone into schools to talk about aviation taking components like a wing rib or something. Just talk about aviation but we have a a build program that we're actually building a pete in polar pamper that we've advertised that we've had kids come in and actually work with wood to build pieces of an airplane We recently picked up a taylor crap. Bc twelve the is going to be a cooperative effort with the local mechanic in town. A curtiss aviation. They're going to help us with that. As far as giving us a place for that aircraft live at another airport in providing some maintenance oversight to people to work and restore attila. crafty wealthy. When you do these outreach to the schools. I know it's great to bring people into the airport but we really do need to go out and grab people because like you said you know. The days are just running over to the airport and hanging on the fence or walking out. The field are almost over. But i think that really to me. My favorite thing is the fact that you can do that where you are absolutely and you can see when we have our our in these people that some. I've never seen a lot of these people in my life. I have no idea. They'll come up and thanked me and say you know. Thank you for allowing us to do this. Like we never thought something like this was possible. And i'll just ask them like how they found out about it and it's like a friend of a friend or something but you never know who's going to be there. What what kid you're going to reach out to or even adult or parent. That can just show them that you can do this. You can be involved in this and it could be a life changer for for a child. Obviously it can mean a life changing event you know maybe getting into flying As a career as a hobby also increases. There are many different things that they can use another parts of life. Let's not just flying. I mean it's a hands on approach. If you have a young student say that wants to become a mechanic Never thought they could do that. They can never work on airplanes. I you're you're really inspiring some of those

"bc" Discussed on MEDIA INDIGENA : Indigenous current affairs

"This sort of like handed off to indigenous services and is really funny to just tangent here How they were sort of almost Trying not to say the word indian in in the they say south asian so the be politically correct they can say south asian but yeah how suspicion like you're saying suspicion bill because the first person is suspicious so therefore the second person is automatically suspicious because this. Why would this you know. There's there's a there's a believability amongst The minor autocrats that are involved in this whole thing and they believe each other. They don't believe the brown person and it's not the the came in lying is just that they they suspect something and therefore their suspicion takes precedence over his existence. Doubt is their default. And they just yeah. They'd rather rather believe you'll have to prove what you are. They don't have to prove what what they thought of you. Okay but here's the thing like i. I'm i'm just trying to imagine in this warped way on my part. You know ken we in any way. Excuse the bank for what's going on for. Not really you know having their act together when it comes to serving their customers of an indigenous persuasion shall we say but you know two point five percent. According to the city two point. Five percent of the metro. Vancouver population is indigenous. It would seem small but in absolute numbers. It's the third largest in in canada and in fact In two thousand sixteen the census tallied over two hundred and seventy thousand average people in bc. Almost six percent of the population of which hundred and seventy two thousand were first nations. One hundred twenty five thousand of whom or seventy two point. Eight percent had registered or treaty indian status. You've got over one hundred twenty thousand status indians walking around bc so to speak Why can't you get your act together on this. This is my thing. Has anyone at the bank. Been disciplined fired held to some kind of account. I mean i've looked back through the archive admittedly kind of kind of quickly. But i've never. I've never seen anyone reference the bank manager in question in terms of accountability terms of discipline. Will i haven't seen other. I think there's a larger banking problem. There was a time when you went to the bank. The bank everyone knew who you were. That was that was their security right and the people who worked the bank always worked the bank. The bank manager knew all the customers as banking culture has moved away from that. Where there now you use a use automated tellers more often than not Asi- aside from the time you open your bank account. They don't know you they don't know what you look like. They don't know who you are like a another anecdote and it's not going to the bank. My mother was banking at but because of where she was working every single time. She went to deposit her check. They held it. They had to manager at in the manager. There was one who saw her right. Who goes no no no no. She's fine right but each teller always like held onto the check and went through this whole dance of like. I have to have this verified. Ma'am sorry can you wait here for a minute and it happened every single time. She went there. And you know what that's it i'm done. I'm done with you as she moved to a smaller. A banking organization of a credit union and she. Bushy never had that problem. You know the the the the people there knew her. So that was part of the security. So i think i'm not absolving. The bank saying that the banks culture of like having you know fewer branches more like thousands upon thousands of customers at one branch will then lead to this kind of failure over and over again where people don't have the knowledge or aren't given that knowledge and then and then You're gonna see this. I am pretty sure you're gonna see this happening. I'm pretty sure it's already happened again. Somewhere else known sending about it Not the accent getting arrested but the extent of someone being denied service. Someone being like Like what happened with brock mother. Like a where the money that is legitimately there's is hailed for advert for an unreasonable amount of time. And that's the repetition of this. That's the system right. And it's the bank has contributed to that system because of how they you know they're they're sort of trying to align their customers toward towards a more automated process. So you're saying if maximal johnson walked in wearing a suit of gold and hand and slapped his platinum card. Cut etched with the finest lasers. He's still be treated. This area probably goes back. My ritual point. You could be you have to wear your resume round your neck to prove that you're human being worth the time of being by someone in a bank. Can i add one thing. I just wanted when you mentioned this about this incident. The thing that comes to mind is. Canada is notorious internationally for its slackness when it comes to money laundering like canada. Part of the reason why canada's notorious for our housing price problem in In major centers like vancouver and toronto is because it seems that international criminal organisations. No they can launder money quickly through canada and so the the idea that the bank is somehow going after a family that has like a a small amount of funds relatively as was mentioned it was due to a land claim settlement at twenty. Three thousand dollars you. Yeah i mean you put that against the average wealth of most of the customers that would come through there and it's it's a very like what is the average house price in vancouver like over a million dollars and so that there there somehow going to war on grandfather and his granddaughter. Yeah meanwhile how. Many people went through that brands that in improbably laundered illicit funds in the tens or hundreds of thousands like so out of.

Just make sure you got a good grip on that and now on with the snow. Remember when apple said iphone could stand up to real world. Submersion and italy said apple was full of it while see nut hasn't said that italy is full of it they do show the phone surviving something besides lab water. I told you yesterday. Italy finding apple twelve million dollars. Us for leading consumers astray on iphones. Actual water resistance while apple says several models of iphone can stand up to thirty minutes of submersion without sustaining damage. Italy says that's only true for pure water used in the laboratory. Drop your phone and real world water and damaged more likely. According to a talion authorities hold. My vino says seen that that site got together with mission robotics to get by phone twelve along. Slow baptism in the chilly. Waters of lake tahoe. Then they gave it a longer one for the first test. They went as far down as apples on the box reading. Nineteen point six feet deep for thirty minutes. Then they dried it with a towel. And almost everything worked fine. Playing back voice memo. The speaker sounded a bit muffled straight out of the lake. They think it might have gotten better if they'd given it longer to dry but no time for that. They had another test test to took the phone down. Sixty five feet for forty minutes. They knew it was still working to some extent they detach the phone to a drone with the screen facing the drones camera so they could watch for functionality or lack thereof surprisingly the p. says after longer than rated at a much greater depth everything worked as normal. The screen was responsive. The volume and power buttons worked and the two cameras were in working order as well. The speaker is still sounded muffled. When playing back voice memo it was still audible. Perhaps to give the phone a fighting chance seen that powered it off and let it dry out for seventy two hours though. That second test seems to done more damage than initially thought. The phone itself was completely dry. But it's three lenses the ultrawide wide-angle on the back as well as the front camera had developed some fogging. Additionally powering it on showed a diagnostics. Prompt around which they were unable to pass seeing that points out that the test was not scientific. Still they are comfortable without both water. Resistance claims for iphone twelve. Your mileage may vary and of course try to not drop your phone in the lake. Well mac many isn't completely forgotten. It's not usually a barn burner and yet piece from apple insider says the recently released m one mac. Many has made apple number one. In japan for desktop p. c.'s. The japanese analytics firm bc and retail has aggregated the sales data of mass retailers and online stores for the island nation according to that firm from the first of august through the third of november ambles desktop market share in japan stood about fifteen percent with the launch of mac mini. Apple's desktop sharon. Japan shot up to just over twenty seven percent enough for the top spot where desktops are concerned. Perhaps that's flash in the pan interest in the new machine. Maybe it's the start of a long run at the top time and c. n. retail will tell more news in a moment but first a word from nord. Vpn online security starts with a click.

"The vikings new. The see. well it was the expense. Their ships crossed to plunder foreign lands and its bountiful depths. Were their main source of food.

His name was your main gonder in norse mythology. Your men gondar is the son of the trickster spirit loki and the giant tests angra boda. He's the middle child of a monstrous brewed. His elder brother fenra is a massive wolf and his younger sister. Hell is goddess of the underworld while his infamous siblings possessive vengeful intelligence. You women ghandoure's destructive tendencies are the product of impulse. The colossal serpent is slow witted but utterly deadly unlike other gods he cannot be reasoned with your men. Ganders name means huge monster and for good reason. His body is so massive that it fully encircles mid guard the human world of the ancient norse but even more on settling than his size are his deadly fangs dripping with venom and lodged in a gaping maw large enough to swallow a giant some of the earliest lower about your men. Ghandour is found in the poetic and prose as the poetic edda is a thirteenth century collection of poems from unknown icelandic authors. That were thought to be written between eight hundred and eleven hundred bc c e the pros at was written by icelandic author slurry sterling listen around twelve hundred bc e. Both eda's are key resources for understanding. The customs of ancient iceland particularly the poetic atta which was written before scandinavia had fully embraced christian.

They belong to the viking age to an era during which the northern people's maintained the liveliest relations with the outside world. The ancient vikings relationship with your men gonder was certainly lively. The giant serpent symbolized the uncontrollable force of a natural disaster inexplicable floods earthquakes and storms. That were beyond humanity's control. Were all blamed on your men. Ghandoure's restless movements and the viking survival depended on the whims of slumbering snake. But your norman ghandoure's mere existence was a menace to all of humanity. A power of such magnitude such an unpredictable monster was a constant threat. A reminder that the end of the world is possible. and there's not a thing we can do about it. Thor sat in darkness listening to a woman's voice.

"Plane of the internet which is but there's things you can do as well so that's sort of the more nefarious wants to things that you may want to watch out for but once you start studying what is happening in the world of you find a whole bunch of other interesting things so for example because you're literally looking at the control plane you could see. Ip addresses being born essentially new things coming alive ip addresses to previously weren't announced in the world of which means you couldn't reach them all of a sudden becoming available or all of a sudden becoming unavailable. And once you start correlating collecting that data you can. You can start doing interesting things so for example you might attack that a set of ip addresses all of a sudden is withdrawn from the system. The row to say. Hey i previously told you. I could reach this. Ip address. But i had no longer cancel withdrawing that and maybe at the same time a whole bunch of other people are doing the same and maybe those ip addresses all belong to the same isp google or the same country. They were located all to say egypt. Whatever and so once you start studying that data and run some algorithms on it all of a sudden you can detect very large scale outages as well so these are some of the things that you can do when you start monitoring for bjp fence. What does the implementation of bgp monitoring software look like in some detail. That's obviously very implementation specific. But there's a few primitives that that you need so so first of all. You need a lot of data because the bjp system is a very large systems a lot of players. And what you if you take a snapshot of the control plane which essentially what would be monitoring software needs to needs. They got a copy of the control plane. Data like a bjp feet. We call so. I can take a bjp. I'm based out of vancouver canada from an isp here in vancouver. Canada maybe right but that only gives me a regional view of what the isp's maybe here in vancouver bc but that might be a little bit different than in europe or even in san francisco or china. Whatever right so the idea is that you need to get this many of these feats as possible because it gives you a complete as possible. View of the internet certain ip networks for example are only visible in certain regions or only visible in certain regions as originated by certain autonomous system. So that's the first thing you need to have lots of. Bjp feats copies of the internet routing table. What do they look like. That's your input. The other thing a lot of folks need is sort of a source of truth and so depending on how you do that a lot of times when you sign up for service like this you will need to basically say. Hey this is me i am. I'm just using google as a random example and these are all my prefixes and i expect them to always be originated by autonomous system. Google whoever else right so now you have a source of truth so now you have these thanks. You have a source of truth. This is my expected state. And you have sort of what's happening in the real world and basically as this data comes in and this can be literally hundreds if not more thousands of updates per second you start correlating this this source of truth which you expect with what's with what is out there and then if there's a delta you can run some analysis on it and say well. This delta is significant enough to inform. Whoever is is monitor. It wants to be notified of any changes as so you can look for origin again. This prefix should always be announced by google. All of a sudden it's announced by someone else that violates my expectations and then you trigger an alert. And then you know you can build an alerting system. And there's multiple ways to do dot and so that is sort of four so the alerting and informational purposes and similarly. If you want to look for outages you can do similar things withdrawal sort of. Edp is based on delta's so it's like. Hey i previously told you this. That's no longer case with dot or i previously told you. Disparate facts was announced by this network. Now it's announced by style network. So you need to somehow maintain a bunch of state to keep track of what's going on. And if you see for example all of a sudden a whole bunch of withdraw messages meaning prefixes are becoming unavailable. You can correlate that so you can you have a bunch of processes running to that figure out if this is significant or not but that's sort of high level thing expected state where a customer or user goes into define what is expected and then a so does your source of truth and then sort of real life information you compared to delta's significant enough. It goes into alerting more joel and you can alert users. However you want to be emailed phone calls semes- messages web hooks. However you'd like to develop this. Could we talk a little bit more about. Bg from the perspective of a hyperscale like amazon web services. Yeah so. I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for but i can give it a shot so amazon like any other cloud provider google. Whoever relies on bjp as much as small isp in wherever middle of Rural america or something like that like we all need to participate in the internet routing tables. So this really no big difference there but the one thing that is different is interesting that you see more. And more cloud providers providing a bjp interface if you will with their customers so for example amazon and google. They're providing direct connect services. Now where essentially you can connect with one gig..

On the Origin of English

"So here is the basic story. The idea is that germanic goes back to some original language. We call it proto germanic. We can't know what it speakers would've called it. There was this original language that became german and english and swedish et cetera and that would have been spoken probably in that little neck of denmark or maybe a little southwards of that in. Let's say about five hundred bc. So that's where proto germanic would have started in the meantime there's a thesis that that language was profoundly impacted by invading or at least imposing people from the near east people from way down where there is today lebanon and syria and israel specifically it would be the phoenicians. The phoenicians were one of many people in that region and they would have spoken a semitic language. I e a language related to what we know today as hebrew and arabic and if we wanna go. Further afield aramaic and cross the red sea. And it's i'm hurric- in ethiopia. But they spoke of semitic language and we know what they spoke because they wrote it down because they actually were the first people who grabbed the alphabet when it was very quietly and scrap invented probably by mercenary soldiers in egypt. The finishes took it and made into something that they use. Basically to write down business related things they want writing epochs. They weren't writing the grapes of wrath. But they were writing and so the phoenicians are the ones who end up spreading the alphabet throughout the world. In any case more to the point the phoenicians were big travelers. they did not like to stay home. The phoenicians started ruling the roost. They were probably in about eleven hundred bc and they didn't just stay there they sailed. They traded they got themselves around what was then considered by people like them the world throughout the mediterranean they keep on going westward and of course once you get out to where there's no more land while you might start going up into like spain and they kind of around the coast they traded. They brought things back. They were great intermediaries now in the middle east. They had their cities like like tire and blows or carthage. That you hear so much about on the north coast of africa that is phoenician or punic territory but they sailed and you know there is evidence that they sailed not only to roughly spain and portugal. Which is what we have absolutely concrete evidence for them doing but as evidence that they kept going and they went all the way up to northern europe and past. What's now germany. And they actually would have gone all the way to that part of denmark. One little piece of evidence is that they got people. Amber got some amber in greece. If you've got some amber and what is today lebanon. While the amber as often as not from up in that baltic northern european region they had a lot of amber amber is pretty. I think amber is preserving bits of dinosaur tales and insects and things like that but also just gorgeous you kind of want to bite it. Big amber trade. Well they always seem to have it. We'll have they get it. Well it would seem that. They had some sort of connection to northern europe. That in itself doesn't mean that they sailed all the way up there and got it because there were ways of trading amber just a cross the european continent but the fact that they had so much amber is one of a great many things. It's like the spokes in a wheel. An argument is about various things that all seem to point in the same direction. What about that amber. But more to the point it's about the language what is wrong with manic. Why is it so odd. Well what is this case that these people came from the near east and sailed all the way up around your understand. What the thesis is. The idea is that speakers of phoenician settled in somewhere in this part of denmark and there was long-term settlement where speakers of this phoenician and speakers of this thing we called proto germanic mixed to the point that many people were basically speaking proto germanic in phoenician to an extent this is what we linguists call language contact theory. The idea being that proto germanic ended up being really stamped by this other way of being a language because there would have been these settlements where venetians ruled the roost and their language seemed to be the cool one and it was the one that people switch to so the proto germanic ended up being profoundly affected it kind of wanted to be cool and became more like venetian. What's the evidence that that happened given that. There is no archaeological evidence. Partly because what would have been the shore back then has since become underwater. So we can't really dig up wear. The settlements probably would have been well. One of the things is words. So as i said so many words in germanic languages don't trace back. They just pop up all of a sudden it's about one in three and that's a conservative estimate. Now some of the experts. Just don't give a damn about that. And they have other things to do. They have bigger fish to fry in that as perfectly understandable. Sometimes you just don't give a damn you know what i don't care about. For example i do not care about outer space. I remember when there was the apollo landing and everybody was so excited and they actually rolled in a little black and white. Tv into my classroom. We were supposed to watch. I didn't care. I'm more interested in what's going on here astrophysics. I respect it. But i do not care about saturn

This Green Bay Quarterback Idolized Alex Trebek

"Last weekend the world lost an icon we have learned that longtime jeopardy host. Alex trebek's has died after. Waging a brave very public battle with stage. Four pancreatic cancer so remembering the man with all the answers. Now extra bet you showed up in our households more consistently than any relative. Alex trebek's was not a game show host. He was like a friend today. The athletics match schneiderman on the connection between jeopardy host. Alex trebek's and packers quarterback aaron rodgers as a kid you grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person is really special for rodgers star combination having a connection to somebody s the meaningful stall. But when you meet that person they have the president and the charisma that you have hoping they and definitely athletic. I'm davidson and i'm under sculptor. It's friday november thirteenth. And this is the lead so matt you recently talked to aaron rodgers about role that jeopardy has played in his life. What was his experience with the show. Growing up yeah. He told me about how when he was a little kid. He'd be staying at his grandparents house finished dinner early. And you retire to living room for jeopardy and grandpa's in his grandma's hurt sure i'm on the ground and that's just kind of a we. Did he was so devoted to this show from a young age and then he kinda grew to appreciate it more and he's a really intellectual savant. I guess you could say big trivia buff so that kind of drew him to it and alex trebek's became one of the iconic voices of his childhood a connection with certain people for my show and i've been fortunate enough to meet a few of them but it's kinda voices on my gv. I'm talking about john. Men summerall about how frank. And then on. Monday nights before bob barker on prices riot as he got into the league he said even if there would be obligations tend to in green bay on weeknights. He would record it. I mean literally friends of mine and visit dated. Six o'clock at my house is by had any friends over. If i was dating someone. If i had any family in town they knew that six. Pm in green bay was jeopardy time. So they'd better not make any other obligations so he was a real deal jeopardy diehard what stood out to him about alex trebek's as a game show host. He said really his cadence and his sense of humor and his ability to not make fun of but have a great back and forth with. The contestants are really enjoyed the often awkward coming into the first commercial. It'd be the contestants is reaction to so many of them is what made this show so great. Now just the thank you often have some nerds out. There were really nervous about what they do. It's called mary. Core hip hop it murdered. Core hip hop. It's people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things. They love video games science fiction having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It's really catchy. And fun losers. In other words. I know teasing you. And roger said that nature of trebek's the one that was playful with the contestants and related to them a little bit rather than just being a robot reading off of a sheet because it was his job for thirty minutes every night was what drew him to him so much before he became a professional. Football player did aaron rodgers do trivia. Was he the guy at the bar at trivia night. I'm sure he was. You know he's been on a couple of game shows. You probably know it then on multiple shows jeopardy hundred dollar ear man. Eight small felt things on a billiard table lopez jennifer lawrence i. I'm sure when he went to cal berkeley and he was the big man on campus there as the quarterback he was still going to trivia night at bars. I mean he challenges himself intellectually in a lot of different ways. I did a story with him last year seeing if he could name all thirty seven players. He's turned touchdowns to in his career. Rodgers could remember the exact route. Some no name tight end ran in two thousand and eleven. Because that was the tight ends only touchdown pass from rodgers so it was really impressive. Seeing how much he's able to remember and his abilities as a quarterback. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say his ability to process information and remember kind of the tendencies of certain defensive. Players definitely transfers over to a game show. Aaron got the chance to meet. Alex trebek's five years ago when he was a contestant on celebrity jeopardy. What was it like for him to meet the game show host. He grew up watching yet. It was big for him. Because you think aaron rodgers you know. You wouldn't be florida starstruck by anyone. This was in two thousand fifteen when he met. Alex trebek's super bowl. He'd already one to mvp's but aaron said he was the one of the few people that left me starstruck. And i think to be star star can have stayed combination of having a connection to somebody. That's that's deep. Meaning for a stall jack but when you meet that person they have the presence in the charisma then you kind of hope they would and you definitely did i so excited trying to keep it together as a kid. He grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person it was really special for rodgers and he just loved more so than anything. How down to earth travek was how conversational he was. It wasn't something like okay. You're here on my show getting your position and i'll do my job. He was the guy you think he is on tv. All the things that make you feel like you care about the conversation. I'm talking about old school stuff. I'm talking about striking yet. Shaking your hand looking. I contact in the conversation. I felt like present in the moment. So aaron rodgers this trivia. Buff jeopardy fanatic. It's finally on the show. How did he prepare for it. Was he like in a room going over tape. His preparation for this show was unbelievable. He was watching. Not just the ken jennings and brad rudders of the world. But he was watching random contestants just to see how they approached the game. He watched tape of other contestants just to see where they place their hands to buzzing quick enough did they stay in the same category. Did they go. Two hundred four hundred six hundred or did they bounce around to try and throw off the other contestants so he came in with a very set strategy especially to go up against mr wonderful kevin o'leary from shark tank. That was his main competition. And i'm not gonna say he wanted to win it more than he wants to win a regular week ten. Nfl game against the jaguars like they have coming up this weekend but he took this very seriously show was a dream. But you don't think we're there any highlights or any surprises any categories where aaron rodgers did surprisingly well. Yeah leader of the pack. He obviously did very well in that in three thirty four bc. This great guy. Lead thirty five thousand greeks into persia. Aaron was alexander the great correct twelve hundred. The one question he did get wrong. Which was the final jeopardy question was it showed a black and white picture of two men riding old school motorcycles and the writing question i believe was what company made these. Aaron is looking pretty happy now. Did he come up with the correct response when he wrote down who are earned standing young and the answer was hardly and davidson and he got it wrong and then there's that brief moment where alex trebek's says well let's see how much wagered and rogers had a wry smile on his face and kind of smart looking at alex. Trebek's like i already know i won. This caused him too much. No he is the winner today. Charity the tape and he said he still has the little trophy. They gave him after winning celebrity jeopardy and that big fifty thousand dollar check the money that went to charity after he won. He still has those in his house. Check now with me. Checked and little choking and i asked him. Where does that day on. Celebrity jeopardy rank among non football ventures. Because he's been on game shows he's been courtside huge sporting events. He's the face of state farm billion dollar insurance agencies. He's done a lot of fun. Commercials there he said. The liberty jeopardy is right up there. The opportunity to compete against astronaut turned senator and super successful businessman. Plus really special. You know getting those nerves friend. He walks out turn just for.

How did we name our days and establish the weekend?

The How in the World Podcast

How did we name our days and establish the weekend?

"All right. Welcome to the podcast. So this topic stems from a conversation. I had with our thirteen year. Old son pete a couple of weeks ago on monday afternoon as we drove home from basketball practice. Pete was lamenting the fact that the weekend had gone by so quickly and decided that weekend should be four days long and the workweek or in his case. The school week should only be three days. that sounds about right. Yep so this conversation naturally led to the questions who decided how long the weekend should be and how were the days named that. I thought was a perfect topic for this podcast. And that's pretty good. See that's exactly why we came up with this podcast. We wanted to answer these kinds of questions that we know people have every day right. I mean it really is perfect. So let's start with how the days of the week were named. And i know honey. You've been researching this so go ahead and start us off. Okay be glad to so. Let me begin by saying that. Each of the various resources. I found on. This topic had some variations but generally they were all in agreement and really. That's not unusual for our research. So i'm going to present a version that is a sort of a homogenized version of all of these. Okay that makes it okay. So prior to christianity specifically in the days of the babylonians there were several pagan. Gods running around doing things with thunder and lightning and water and stuff like that. That was probably a pretty interesting time. So at the same time the babylonians were also very into studying our planets and the moon and the sun and placed a lot of importance on these heavenly bodies So at some point between around nine thousand nine hundred bc and five forty bc. The babylonians decided that there would be seven days a week and that they'd be named after the five known planets plus the sun and the moon since the sun and the moon were the best known in the most important they would start the week So back then and still today. They started the week with sunday and then monday followed. So the first two are obvious. Sunday in mundi right but then they went in order of the slowest to fastest in the earth's sky. So tuesday was named after mars wednesday after mercury thursday after jupiter and friday after venus. Okay those don't sound anything like our days except in spanish they do well. They don't see on anything like our english days. Yes yes and there is a distinction here. Okay because that has to do with two things one language and the pay to the pagan gods gotta in the language of the day. They were basically saying mars is day right. Mercury's day and so on. But when the anglo saxons invaded great britain which was much more recent on the world or timelines they decided to swap out the planet names for their god's names. Okay so you take over from here alright. So these more. Recent folks left sunday and monday alone but they named tuesday after the norse god of justice to t i w they named wednesday after the most powerful norse god odin or warden and widens day eventually morphed into wednesday. It's a little bit of a stretch right but that also helps explain the weird spelling of wednesday which i've never understood. These are all based on the old english form of the english language. Yes thursday if you think in terms of famous pagan gods you can probably figure out. Third equals thor right so thursday is the perfect day to get out and do some hammering on carpenters. Really love thursdays. They're big right. Finally friday was named after odin 's wife frigg which is a very unfortunate name so frig f. r. i g. g. was said to be nearly as powerful as her husband so she got her own day. Frig day eventually became friday. And for some reason i forgot to mention saturday which is horrible. Because saturday's the best day saturday is named after again. You can figure it out if you go back to the planet's part sadder saturday saturn's day so is named after the planet saturn. We didn't change and we didn't change that to a god right because saturday's the best day we don't wanna change. Don't make it not the best right. So you've got saturday sunday and monday. That remain named after heavenly bodies in the rest or named after norse gods yup and there you go there. There's your week boom

I can I can do the pronunciations justice. Oh, see now that's bullshit. Tell. You land. Will probably bad. So don't worry. Yeah that didn't Stop Hannah. As I have never done a Roman episode either I don't know why I'm up here on my high horse but anyway. Thank you for this I'm so excited. Please Hannah we get away. All right well, the Roman empire was the Post Republican period of ancient Rome the generally accepted dates of the Roman Empire from twenty seven BC to four, seventy, six, eighty although I'll talk about some of the differing opinions about the exact dates. Later, I WANNA start off by laying some of the groundwork of how room operated before we get into the Roman Empire itself. This city and Kingdom of Rome was mythological founded around seven hundred and fifty BC with seven fifty three BC being the most commonly accepted date. It was founded by Romulus the city's namesake and his brother Ramos who are nursed by she will after being abandoned on the banks of the river. Tiber. ROMULUS ended up killing his brother during a dispute over which the seven hills to build the new city on and became the first. King of Rome who? Start. Yeah, just you know as you do murder brother side, you want to build your city on late normal things normal Italian things I would say. Yeah. That's. That's true. So. The Roman Kingdom was the earliest period in Roman history when seven kings ruled before it became a republic. So in five Oh nine BC, the monarchy was overthrown and the Roman Republic was established the majority of the former king's functions were passed onto two men named consuls who are elected to term of one year and could be prosecuted after council ships ended if abuse those powers Ooh I like that. Yeah. That's a little. GonNa Balance. Right there. Yeah exactly and under the Republic Room also began the practice of assigning dictators basically, if things got. So Harry that they're like now we can't risk multiple dudes working to solve this problem. Just let one guy decide everything. So elegant stunned, they could choose a person to be a dictator for six months for six months. That's Max dictator I think you know yeah, I like. It was their choice and also if whatever the dictator was chosen to carry out, usually it was war like somebody or something I if that finished earlier than the six months period, the dictator was actually expected to them be like, okay, that's it. I'm done and dislike resigned their dictatorship. Okay, that's also something that the Italians are really good about is giving power. and. They were actually fairly common until the end of the second punic war, which is the one with Hannibal and the elephants and actually did work pretty well late the Roman republic was basically constantly at war during this time since it went from essentially being a city sitting on a bunch of hills to being invaded by gulls then they took over the entire Italian peninsula and they defeated Carthage over the course of the three punic worse than they conquered all of modern bakeries and finally they had three different slave revolts with the last one being the one with Spartacus said everyone who's about and. So obviously that much war and that much rapid expansion meant there is like unrest in the air and it opened the door to a lot of military leaders to make their mark in the world, which is where we're gonNA start our main story about the empire. Julius. Caesar was never an emperor of Rome and died under the Roman Republic and not the Roman Empire that you cannot start talking about the Roman Empire without first talking about my boy JC.

"Last back that I want to. Talk to you about today is the logistics of this all because this is an election that's happening in the middle of pandemic, and so how is it going to work I understand that mail in ballots, which there are a lot of. counted. By hand he us this is going to be an unprecedented election in in many on many levels, but especially on that one. So just to give some context. So by law here in any election in an in previous elections as well. For Mail in ballots, they don't even begin counting them until thirteen days after election night. That's to give the you know the time to scrutinize the ballots to vet them to make sure there is no voter fraud elections BC says because of the sheer volume in this election, it could take longer than that but just to give you a sense of how many people are voting ahead of time in this largely is because we're in a pandemic election rain a lot of people don't want to physically go to the polls come general voting day and so in. The last provincial election here it was something like point three percent of total votes were cast by mail I think it was sixty, five hundred already in this election that's increased one hundred fold. There have been almost eight hundred thousand vote by mail packages requested, and so that will translate to almost a third of all votes, which is a huge number, and then you look at advance advance voting added one more day of advance voting because of of the pandemic this year. So already, we've seen that number around six, hundred, thousand, I'm so all in all if. You combine advance, voting and mail in ballots were seeing about one point two, five, million British. Columbians vote early that's nearly sixty percent. So that is a huge number what that means for election night it'll depend if there is you know kind of an orange wave and an orange sweep in the MVP does see that ground swell of support kind of translates come election night because use largely what we're seeing in in the in the public opinion polls leading up to it. So if that is the case, a lot of the writings or enough of the Writings will be they'll be a large enough margin that they can safely be called. It may come down to will we know if it's a minority or a majority not could be up for debate but the final results certainly, we'll take a very long time to be counted. Okay Tenure Fletcher. Thank you so much for this conversation I really bet my pleasure thanks Jamie and I, wish you much luck on election night or in the days the follow up because.

"Can we talk a little bit about how the pandemic is playing in this election? Now you mentioned earlier that there's been a lot of support for John Higgins government how he's dealt with it and serve this unpoliticized nature. But how is the pandemic playing into what the parties are saying that they're going to do in this election to help people where they are you know it's interesting to watch because normally through any campaign provincially, we hear about hot button issues like. Housing affordability and those types of things those are still being talked about to some degree but. Certainly not on the scale, we normally see and it's all being put through the Lens of the pandemic. So you know you're talking about the economy and and how that's being pitched in the platforms. The for example, has one point five, billion dollar economic recovery plan but the end ep kind of big populist promise is a one thousand dollars cashback essentially for families and so some are saying that's just trying to bribe votes vote. Buying but the end saying, well, Look Raina pandemic families are struggling and so there are some parameters to it but basically, it's a thousand dollars in your pocket for families. Well, the the package will cost about one point, four billion dollars, and that's putting dollars right into the pockets of those families that need it the most I think this is a good investment in people. They'll not put this in tax havens and the grand. Cayman so. Those are looking at a liberal tax cut proposals, and then conversely you look at the Liberals, they're the right of centre. Party here. And so they have vowed to eliminate the PS altogether for an entire year because this will give people spring in their step. This will give people a chance to get ahead. This will build British Columbia by bringing in investment and giving people the confidence to get back involved in our economy, and that is a big bold promise. That's third kind of the biggest one of the campaign and they've been desperately trying to change the conversation because they have been. they've taken such a back seat during the pandemic, greatly, the dial down the rhetoric, the down the partisanship, and now they're trying to come forward and be become relevant again to the point of winning back government, and so they put out this kind of Hail, Mary, promise in their platform to eliminate the PS T for an entire year seven percent provincial sales tax, and then after that, they would bring it back in a graduated scale at three percents. Just to give people a bit of a break this year because so difficult and their reasoning. Yeah exactly. The reasoning using that through the lens of the pandemic is that that will encourage consumer spending, right? It will get people the economy going again because people might go out and buy goods, and all of the promises were seeing are putting are being looked at because of the pandemic, and that's largely what this election comes down to. I. Have not heard from a single voter have not heard from A. Single Party member who thinks this is a time for study, we have got to support each other in this time of code and we'll make our way through it together. What about the Greens and their new party leader Sonya I to know what what are they promising to do in this election? How are they standing? Well, it's really interesting to see the green trying to shed the Green Party of the past I sat down with leaders on your first last week keep in mind she only became the leader. About a week before this election was called and I don't think that's a coincidence either from the standpoint that was a great bonus for them to catch the Green party flat-footed and not have a chance for British Columbians to get to know their new leader. The predecessor Andrew Weaver he's really the one who who brought the Green Party to where it was with prominence in this province on and he stepped down. There were some internal cracks within the Green Party and some fractures that began to surface. So he stepped down as party leader I think it's important to pass the torch at a time after there's been a lot. Of Success and I will say that the next leader will inherit a party that has never been in better shape not only that he then went on to leave the Green Party entirely he sat as an independent when the legislature dissolved, but he's not running again he's retiring and he since put his public support with the with John Horrigan and so that that's a really. That's a big struggle for the Greens and a new leader to overcome not to see your your predecessor really not support you in that sense and so Sonya I was trying to broaden the Green Party and put her own brand, her own identity, her own stamp on this party, and so what I'm focusing on demonstrating that we can be addressing today's problems, but we also can be solving and preventing tomorrow's crises and part of that you look at their platform and you can. Tell with their policy trying to broaden their tent to really health and wellness mental health young supports education. So.

"bc" Discussed on Front Burner

"Hi, Tania Hi Jamie. Thanks so much for being with me today. I hear you were actually on holiday when this election was called last man. Yeah it's true. Murphy's law have the political reporter away when a snap election is called we were rumblings that this could be a possibility. So I wanted to get some of my vacation days out of the before it happened. But Alas I drove back very quickly nine hours did some hits hits off the side of the highway? Points along the way, but here we are. Okay. Okay. So let's get into this because lots to cover today I know that the fixed election date NBC was actually supposed to be next year October twenty, twenty one but John Horgan's argument for the election was that it would otherwise create quote uncertainty and instability over the next year we are far from out of the woods. We are not at the end of covid nineteen we're at the beginning. This pandemic will be with us for a year or more. And that's why I believe we need to have an election now. So what grounds does he have to make that argument that the central question this whole time has been why are we having an election at all right now? From people on the street and you try and talk to them about policies in platforms and and it seems many people circle to there was no need at a time like this during a global pandemic to be calling an election, there's way more important than should be focusing on and then trying to. Gain power this time I didn't. Would be my question to our premier. Why now is this opportunistic? So Jon Morgan has had a tough time trying to defend that. The main reason behind that is that the end EP wanted to take advantage of John. Horgan's sky high popularity. You know he was among the opinion polls he was the most popular premier out of all his counterparts across the country. He was largely praised for handle handling the pandemic so far, and so the PGA window of opportunity they wanted to do this. Now, pull the trigger while they're still very popular and do it before the cove bills start to pile up. Right. But they're kind of a great irony in all of this here Horgan's popularity rose because he largely didn't politicize the pandemic. He took a back seat to health officials in Dr Bonnie Henry and. Handed over the reins to her right exactly. Yeah. He let her kind of take control of the situation here. So he was praised for not politicizing the pandemic and yet his popularity grew so much by doing that that he pulled the ultimate I guess politicizing of pandemic by sending people to the polls in the middle of it all and so it was a really high risk high reward gambled to pull the trigger now and try to secure A. Majority government that's why he's doing it. Right we're in a minority situation and the needs that support from the Green Party and so we're banking on low voter backlash hoping that people if there was anger at the beginning for calling this election that they wouldn't translate that on the ballot when it came time as you mentioned, Horgan has led and MVP minority since two, thousand seventeen and then they've done. So with the support of the Green Party it's. Like a formal agreement. So the Greens have to and they've been able to govern because of this relationship and so how might the election changed the power sharing agreement between the EP and the Greens well if the MVP has it their way, this election will wipe out that power sharing agreement entirely basically know hogen only became premier after signing not deal with the Greens and penned right into that power sharing agreement with the promise not to call an early election, and now he's trying to pin the blame on that party. That's prompt him up, which adds a whole nother why yeah. It's a whole nother layer of backstabbing. You Might WanNa say, but Horrigan claims he called this snap election because. On stable government you know he said. I think his quote was I have it here? He says I cannot imagine twelve more months of bickering twelve more months of not knowing whether a bill would pass the legislature because of uncertainty numbers we have pat. As you know through the summer, some challenges with passing legislation. This ability that I believe we had over the course of our Our minority government is not as strong as it was when we began Sonya I know who leads the Green Party right now she categorically denies that she said look there is no way that you're calling this election because we have an unstable minority government she said I I'll prove it she she made public. A letter that she wrote to him just a week before the election was called before right after she became leader of the Greens. She's a new green leader and in it, she wrote the in there that she would support John Horrigan. The Greens would support the EP on all matters of confidence and that there would be no question about whether they would continue to support the NDP moving forward. This is not been a time of instability and government. This has been a time of unbelievable cooperation and collaboration for the people of British Columbia. This is exactly what John Horgan should have continued doing. He has chosen not to so that was a little. Dubious in. John Horgan trying to use that as the reasoning for calling this election because I haven't let him forget it right. I can't imagine she's very pleased with what's happening right now no one she's made the entire spearhead of her strategy through this campaign is the first week or two at least every day she stood up there no matter which campaign stop she was at and said, you know John Horgan is selfish. He broke his own legislation in calling an election early because we have fixed election dates here, they're really trying to paint him as untrustworthy..

Paper, Rocks or Digits: What Makes the Best Money?

"What makes the best money? I've been reading a number of books recently on money. Money the unauthorized biography by Felix Martin and money the true story of a made up thing by Jacob Goldstein. Both of these books have examples of different types of money that's been used in the past. Fascinating examples that you might not be aware of. and. We WanNa look at them and think about what is it? That makes something money. Money evolves and has evolved and will continue to evolve in what we used as money today might be very different decades from now. The first example is from the island of Yap. This is an island in the Western Pacific part of the Caroline Islands. It is now part of the Federated States of Micronesia. The people of the APP lift on the run over separated from other cultures for many many years. We'll in one, thousand, nine, three, an anthropologist who had also been trained as a medical doctor from new. England William Henry Furness went to Yep for two months and studied this people. And it wasn't a very advanced economy with. Three products, fish coconut and sea cucumbers, but they had something unique that they used for money. Furnace describes his money as large solid thick stone wheels ranging in diameter from a foot to twelve feet. Having the center a whole varying in size with the diameter of the stone wearing a poll may be inserted sufficiently large and strong to bear the weight and facilitate transportation. This was their money. It was called FAE. FBI are also it's called why are? The money was quarried in an island three hundred miles away babble up. And then it was transported on rafts towed behind canoes that had sales on them. Took a lot of effort to get this money. When furnace I saw it. He realized this really heavy and wrote when it takes four strong men to steal the price of a pig burglary cannot but prove a somewhat disheartening. These things were so big and heavy, you couldn't steal them. But then he observed as transactions took place that these stones were He wrote the noteworthy feature of this stone currency is that it is not necessary for its owner to reduce it to possession after concluding a bargain which evolves the price of a fe too large to be conveniently moved. Its new owner is quite content to accept the bare acknowledgement of ownership without so much as a mark to indicate the exchange, the coin remains undisturbed on the former owner's premises. In fact, there was one family furnace pointed out where the stone was lost from where it was quarried and had been several hundred feet at the bottom of the ocean for several generations. Yet the family that owned it everyone recognized that they still on that and that they were wealthy. Furnace wrote the purchasing power of that stone remains therefore as valid as if it were. Visibly, against the side of the owner's house and represents wealth as potentially as the horrid inactive gold of a miser in the middle, ages or as our silver dollar stacked in the Treasury in Washington which we never see or touch but trade with on the strength of a print certificate that there there. Is. The belief that it had value. Felix Martin wrote money was not the fe but the underlying system of credit accounts and clearing a which they help to keep track. The Fe would just tokens which these accounts were kept. They had an accounting system that tracked the trading of fish and sea cucumbers. And they would have outstanding balances and sometimes they will set up and maybe they would move the fe but often times they wouldn't. But there was the record that was there. Peter Bernstein in his book the power of Gold History of an obsession wrote the FE of Yep we're stores of. Wealth. Stores of wealth. Sit. Money moves it travels from one pocket to another. A store of wealth is mass. It was the transactions, the accounting record, and the trust between the participants that form their monetary system. The stones were a store of wealth, but we're just some tokens. The first documented use of money is from Sumer around thirty five, hundred BC. This is in southern, Mesopotamia. There were vast temple palace complexes there with thousands of crafts people farmers. Shepherds, bureaucrats. and. They wrote on clay tablets in cuneiform script and they wrote contracts evolving the workings of the temple debts owed rents. Effectively. It was money because it was an accounting record and you would have accounts receivable that you could trade. David Graber who recently passed away in his book debt. The first five thousand years wrote the value of a unit of currency is not the measure of the value of an object, but the measure of trust in other human beings.

Sharing it with a friend to that helps grow this podcast series, which is all about craft beer in the Pacific northwest. CASCADIA is a bio region in the Pacific northwest and the North American continent made up the US states of Washington Oregon is wealthy Canadian province of British Columbia. Today I'm in mid Vancouver Island in the municipality of I'm Oh. Now, I will say this is recorded before the world changed in March in fact, a week before everything changed, but I was really fortunate to sit down with the crew at Longwood brewing? My Name Harley Smith's, and my title is repair Guy Delivery Guy Packaging insure proof master and partner. All right. And I'm at Longwood, on in in your actual brewery, not you brew pub and there are two locations. Yeah. We managed to confuse a lot of people, but this is sort of a production facility. Known got confused myself in the in the hurry to make our our meeting. Show up at the other location I did and then I ended up in Lincoln location in time ago. Eric Brilliant So how long ago did you open We opened seven. Years and two days ago yet we're just having our anniversary Tracy, my wife, and I am and my hair puppy dog we. Entered into this for A. Right. How did beer find you all well. Beer found me while I was at Photography School in Toronto and. I changed careers. Thirty years ago. Yeah. So like Mike did Somebody brings homebrew or did you just get interested in was looking for a job to cover my bills and a brewery was advertising an assistant her we're doing a little home brewing at the time with roommate. And nothing too heavy and. I went and applied and they were looking for somebody with zero experience so that they can mold them like clay and they worked quite well. All right. Cool. So how long were you there and that was the Amsterdam brew pub and Tron I started in eighty eight and left in ninety five. To come West right and were you here were you anywhere else before landing here in the name or did you come yet when we first landed in Vancouver there was not a lot of craft brewing on myself and another brewer that I worked under in Toronto started up steam works. And then about a year after the steelworks was opened, the owners wanted to open brew pub in Campbell River on the island. And so we came to the island. To experience the real west coast. opened up a repub which lasted for about ten months as Campbell. River was. Nor close to being ready for cranking right right. They are now. So they are down they are not lately. Yeah. So and so then I take it then you're up in Campbell River, you didn't leave the island. So so how did this all come about then? This came about when Berry Ladele. Brew Master at spinnakers decided to open up a brew pub in Him Oh that was in year two thousand and he was looking for a so he rang me up and I was quite happy to come down and living in our we were tracing. And experience part of the world. So, how long was that process of idea and then? Building. Then Oh for here while it went through a couple of A couple of different. Designs. We had a location downtown, I'm. Right in old town and it was a bit of a weird zoning. Owning they were gonNA, put some limits on the production volumes, and within the bit berries we had it right to design panel, and then shut the project down to a little nervous about not being able to. Have endless amounts of beer produced in just now no room to expand if Niemeyer having a good but and also back, then the liquor board had not confirmed a yes or no whether they were going to prove lounges. No that was a big part of that designed downtown. With with that four though do you think that project would have been able to get him? Yeah. Yeah. I, think. So knowing how you know how integral lounges are too Small Breweries. Now, I think I think we could have a a very nice location and sustained itself with with lounge and not have to pack as much as we do, which has turned into a bit of a Gong Show Oh? Yeah. So. Yeah. So I mean hence the two locations right? I mean that's right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So what's the size of the Brew House back there and how much have you crank out? So we've got twenty, five hectolitre brews jobs talking hectolitre instead of barrels, and then fifty et hectolitre tanks for fermenting and and storage We can produce probably about sixty five, hundred hectolitres year currently were just under three thousand which is. Manages three staff in the BURRI couple sales guys in and then a few other period plays. It's it's a nice volume for us. We still work a lot NEP but growing would-be. But we're fairly comfortable where we're. Organized. Chaos at this point, right When you have few staff in one goes down it's. A big percentage. Now.

"This time last summer, Canada was consumed with story to teens on the Lam wanted for murder, lease and military had launched a nationwide manhunt. Try to find McLeod Brirish Miguel Ski. Rugged terrain and somewhere in the vast northern landscape rcmp believed McLeod and Briar. Goski are on the run. Two of the most wanted men in the country all these teams have been traveling be Berta, Scotch and a now Manitoba, but now they're also concerns in Ontario comparatively friends and family in their small coastal British Columbia town that they relieving find work. Instead they found and murdered Lucas. Fowler, China, these and Leonard Dick. The killers bodies were eventually discovered in early August in the deep Bush northern Manitoba End of across Canada manhunt that left the country on edge, said the bodies RCMP found video footage of the pair, confessing to the killings, and then pledging to end their own lives in a murder suicide. Now you're later. You're seeing peer just finishing up some administrative tasks before they consider it. Case closed, but a huge haunting questions still hangs over the case. Why did they do it? I'm. Sitting in for Jordan Heath Rawlings, and this is the big story. Alex mckean is a reporter for the Toronto Star in their Vancouver Bureau. She reported on the teen manhunt as it unfolded last summer, and wrote about the one year anniversary with her star colleague Kwan Alex. thanks for being with us today. Thanks for having me this case. Consumed the country in the early part of last summer. Why. Do you think that is like? What was the really compelling piece about this whole narrative? I think there were a few things that that relief stole people's attention about this story in particular one of course being the news about these victims who were found dead on the side of the highway, all three of them, I think they they were really shocking. These were people who seem to be living good lives. They were all on vacation and they seem to have just run into some awful situation on the side of the highway. At first there were there were very. LITTLE EXPLANATIONS FOR WHY They died the way they did. Of course, Lucas, Fowler and China DC. They were on this road trip, going up to a hot springs together this relief, happy young couple who were celebrating their time together, so that was that was incredibly sympathetic to people they were they were looking at them, and thinking all I remember when I was young, and in love and wanting to travel around, so I think that was really heartbreaking to hear about that and then Leonard Dick as well. Of course he was He was this incredibly unique man who just had this absolute curiosity for the doors and would often go on these trips, traveling on his own at two to remote places, such as northern BC so I think people were really shocked to hear those deaths in the first place, the other element to this that really captured people's attention was at who the suspects were and to this day there's still a lot of blank spots in our knowledge about who can McLeod. Embarrassment Goski were, but we know that they were incredibly young. They were eighteen nineteen. They they routine adults, but teenager is still. People were asking the question in her still asking the question, what could have motivated them to to do such a thing, and not only that, but then turn around and and drive across the country, trying to evade capture by by police which they managed to do for quite a long time. Yeah, the idea of like kids on the Lam you know with this capability, and then just the. The way that it played out over days. You know no one knew what was going to happen next, they they were. You know suspects. Who are you know hiding in the Bush like the deep Bush remember that like just yeah, absolutely, and that's that's it. People were were really watching with bated breath. I think I certainly was watching with bated breadth There was a certain point where. We know that they went into into the Gillam area in Manitoba, and that was a remote spot where it's one road in one road out so ever owner saying while they're cornered, they will be found eventually, and as the days went by, it just seemed less and less likely that they would be found alive. So I think that was something that. That everyone was really. Really really curious to see what would happen I. Guess on For one part of it, but also. Anxious about it, because if the suspects are found dead, which ultimately they were then, that means all sorts of other things. It means there's there's probably never going to be a full explanation for what happened and of course it's it's another loss of life so there is that as well? Yeah, with all complete due respect to the the victims families, the stood, play out like a movie and a lot of ways, and you you mention this tragic and obviously for the victims families because they don't Ha- ultimately have a an answer for why or or or sort of even just that. Comfort like okay they're. They're caught and they're going to have to hold be held accountable. eventually I'm curious to know what is the status of this case now a year later, especially given the fact that these two young men were found dead. yeah, it's it's a good question and a fair question when my colleague and I were contacting the RCMP last week to write vote the anniversary of this case. The answer that we got back from them was that the case is practically essentially closed. They're not investing anymore. Certainly a I don't know exactly what these tasks would be, but they said that they have some kind of administrative tasks. They're tying up. For All intents and purposes, the case is closed in. They're not investigating anymore. The most interesting piece of that being that they never did determine a motive for for this case at all so. There is no motive but. They're no longer looking for one I guess they don't have to find the motive. It's that seems like a really difficult thing to grapple with you. Know I guess like what's their job as a police I, guess to just apprehend the suspects, or or what you know, it seems like a blank spaces. You characterized it before to not know or even be curious about. A motive. Yes, they did. Stop looking for one in. You're right I. mean they're not. Their job is to determine who committed these These crimes and they said from very early on that these were the suspects who they believe were responsible. They determined with the what they call the high degree of certainty that that it was in fact, these people especially after their bodies were found in, and they had a couple of videos that they had made on on a camera camera. That actually belonged to Leonard Dick which I find very sad. And on that camera they had bid confessed to the killings so. The police from their point of view have determined that they were the suspects and that they have died in. There won't be trial or anything like that, so yeah, I mean from from that point of view. I guess from investigative point of view. There doesn't need to be a motive in order to to prove what happened. to to their standard. I think for a lot of those of us who've been watching pretty. Keenly. There is something that really does feel like. It's missing there. It's not very It's hard to resolve I guess without knowing why on Earth. This happened the way it did especially with such young suspects. and to to your point about the victims,.

"Why BC the race at Talladega on in the background yesterday I had some family over for father's day and I was kind of I thought it was kind of cool that it was going to have fans in the stands there with a lot about five ten thousand fans in the stands got rained out unfortunately the racing right now looks like they're on another rain delay right now the the geico five hundred race to later on this one no I did not I should've my account starting with a little lower so I got to be very strategic with my next bed or else it's gonna be down to zero right now I got the you know some some expenses coming up so I'm going to be very strategic interest be **** nilly button on Russian soccer and ping pong and tennis and I've missed your two AM tax some sort of border the so there was some ugly missed yesterday at NASCAR Talladega the have confirmed Askar did a noose was found hanging in Bubba Wallace's garage at the Talladega speak superspeedway here is over of course the walls of NASCAR's only African American driver he was very big I'm pushing for the removal of Confederate flags at events here is ESPN NASCAR reporter Marty Smith on how it's being dealt with NASCAR's senior official told me they're going to do whatever it takes to make sure that whoever this is they did this is figured out they're gonna look at video and they made the decision immediately that they're going to investigate this to the fullest extent Hey my question is it doesn't seem like there's a lot of people that have access to these garages at this point in time with NASCAR was social distancing mitigating you know fans with with passes that are allowed to come down and check things out none of that is happening right now it's like what ten twenty people to above pit crew and that's if they should be able to find out who did this very easy well yeah because they were threatening before the race couple weeks ago that have guys even interacted with each other before the race they would be fined suspended at center that's how serious they were taking the the social distance thing so they should be able to figure this out about three minutes and if you ever and maybe somebody who knows NASCAR better than than I do can weigh in on this even though I have won a couple bets that driver thank you very tell the you would think if you have a multi million dollar piece of machinery there you might have a camera to on an all time so I I mean this should be pretty easy to piece together to regain them the the race got postponed yesterday due to weather and now it's actually postponed again right now there's a what another weather delay but another thing another kind gross thing that happened yesterday was that high above the track an hour prior to the start of the race there was a plane it with the Confederate flag and an accompanying message that said to de fund of NASCAR I mean it's just ugly mess down there right now because again Bubba Wallace the only African American driving in NASCAR right now had a big push for the removal of the Confederate flag and that's exactly what NASCAR did they are no longer fans are no longer allowed to to display that flags or somebody actually took the time paid somebody or me who knows I should be pretty easy to find out who this is a fluke with Confederate flag over this Talladega superspeedway instead D. funds NASCAR which then ask you wonder what that little stunt cost because what it was like to think of something better to do with that money unbelievable got some audio here and this is really like scary to me this guy lives somewhere where there's bears all over the place you live like out of the woods in some guy he was on his balcony trying to shoo away a bear that was eating from a bird senior hanging from a nearby tree so he walks out and sees this bear climbing up a tree even because bird feeder here's what that sounded like it's going to turn off the tree no don't be a hero yeah don't start down there no no old no down there yeah your respond to forty dollars hello dear and once the video the bridges look at him like I would be eating your head right now if I could get to you I don't think going yeah no no all executives that going to actually do scare a big Big Bear trying to get in the bird feeder I do the same thing with my English bulldog Bruce in the backyard multiple times a day it works with them would you do with the old man for father's day we watch the golf did you have did you bet on the Gulf I was so close to making big money Corey Conners who is eighty five to one I was actually in the lead on on Saturday and then the wheels came off in his win over the house did kicks grill out have some beers I made him cook I mean I got a card so you don't get in the car I did get a card but he says the U. S. open on Thursday so it was the RBC heritage but it's not the same I mean they're dead so they're sure they have the father's day will be celebrated on Sunday the U. S. open when is that windows and he was a temporary thing yeah I we have the family over yesterday grandma came over my dad and some other family all kind of together in the garage and hung out and grow out of Bristol yeah we got one of Traeger grills together smokers and put a brisket on there about nine o'clock in the mornings look at puppy simmer until six yeah it was so delicious my wife's company these for father's day was awesome she carries bows sunglasses and they connect to your iPhone but there's no so you can listen to music while you're wearing the sunglasses but there's no like your bugs or anything the speakers kind of go into your head in you can just hear it like I don't I don't get it it's amazing amazing technology the baddest things that I don't love you that even exist and they're making it up look it up and bows and bows and Lou tooth some to buy it but there's no ear buds in a but I could still and you can't hear from the outside it's not like it's not it doesn't have speakers just because like in your head it's alien technology really what it is rob time travelers coming up after five o'clock more Donald Trump more of what you may have missed during the rally at Tulsa on Saturday night.
