A lot of folks don't know that if you're on the metro, if you're going up and down the coast of California if we're moving human beings are moving goods that those railroads built with the sweat. With the lives of Mexicans and Chinese immigrants. Project is spearheaded by the Venice Mexican American Truck Karros Monument Committee, which seeks to install the statue, designed by Mexican sculptor Jorge Marine in Windward Circle.

"We're going to move to down the street still in norman oklahoma. John madison Bless her heart. She needed to move up to arkansas. Yeah arkansas' i like to call it arkansas. And she needed a apartment so she finds online a two bedroom apartment and rent it. She they send her the paperwork. She kind signs it. Whatever runs the apartment. She moves in and she's been there about a week and she started. Look around at all her neighbors that she would see periodically and they were all old. They're all like old people. Well this is. Just i got a i kinda wanna smack your because like what is wrong with you. It took a week to realize that she moved into a senior citizen apartment complex. She's nineteen years old. She said whenever i got home it was super quiet and now i realize this because most of my neighbors are asleep by the time i get home i can. Also she said a major purchase. She can play loud music whenever she wants. Because most of them can't even hear it surprise. They let her rent there. I'm sure that yes. You were confused looking around. But i guaranteed. They were more confused on whose granddaughter is living at least. I don't know she did not. She went to tiktok to talk about her blunder and she shared it. It's a clip of her browsing apartments on our laptop and then she posted a picture in front of a sign which reads senior citizen apartments. And the pictures. I realized i just moved myself into a retirement home whenever she staying. What if they're letters say they're gonna kick her out. They've got to especially now that this whole thing is gone super viral so some of these old guys might be really happy. She moved in to the corner belgium and french. The the border There's a farmer in belgium. And he has his driving a tractor around and he. There's a huge stone in the middle of his field and he got super irritated until he just moved it. Well then it. It's an like and of his property. Like kinda bordering on a forest. Well another person was walking in the forest and noticed the stone had been moved and the guy walking in the forest was a history buff and he knew that wasn't just any stone. It actually the marker that is the boundary between the two countries guy on his tractor drives around and made belgium bigger and france smaller. And apparently that is not a good idea. The mayor said i was very happy. My town was bigger but the mayor of the town in france did not agree and if he doesn't move it. This stone was placed in eighteen nineteen okay. France and belgium share at three hundred ninety mile border which was established under an eighteen twenty treaty. After napoleon's defeat this stone is a really big deal and you can't just move it. Apparently belgium authorities belgian authorities plan on simply contacting the farmer and asking him to return this dome but if he doesn't the foreign ministry has to open a franko belgium border commission. Something that hasn't happened. Since nineteen thirty and the farmer could face criminal charges if he does not comply there needs to be a plaque on that stone. I really do like four corners up in just one of those circles with the exit says do not move. Don't touch this is kind of a big deal.

EU regulator says AstraZeneca vaccine 'safe and effective'

"The european medicines agency has concluded that the astra zeneca covid nineteen vaccine is safe and effective. A review of the job came after thirteen states suspended. Its use over. Fears of linked to blood clots. But the now says the vaccine is not linked with a higher risk of clots. Well for more. I'm joined from brussels by darren. Mccaffrey the political editor euronews. A darn good morning to you and thanks for joining us with the doubts then about the vaccine. Will this kind all started last week or georgina. A in italy and austria where the reports of suspected blood clots for people who received that vaccine in fact amand had died in those extended to norway last weekend's and more importantly specifically to germany on monday and that led to a whole swathe of countries at particular the big four in the european union. It's the spain and france and germany deciding to suspend the use of the astrazeneca vaccine on what they call the precautionary principle so just in case essentially and that meant that the em aid and investigated these claims and yesterday. She said e kook. The director insisted that the vaccine was safe and effective. They said they couldn't find any link at all between an increase in blood clots and the vaccine however they did also that they couldn't rule arts at that there may be one specific type. Ucla cloth that has seen an increase and they couldn't rule out that that might be linked to it book again. Mccook pointed all medicine. All medicine has got side effects. You pick up a box of paracetamol at. You'll see that. In the most extreme circumstances it is possible. You might a reaction to its the point. Is that risk does not outweigh the benefits of this vaccine is the ema insisted yesterday. There are houses of people dying every day today tomorrow the next day across europe from corona virus and that this vaccine will help save lives or stop people getting ill. It will stop the main open hospital. It will stop them dying. And that's why they have consistently said that countries should have carried on using the astrazeneca vaccine an interest in the of course while not all countries stopped it for example they didn't hear belgian said. It would be irresponsible to do so. It is interesting the eu countries. Listen to the european medicines agency yesterday but ignored advice all week. The advice consistently has been not to stop the use of the astrazeneca vaccine. And i mean it just seems such a giant waste of time in terms of a race that everybody is trying to keep up with to suspend this for four really what has appeared to be no reason i mean as any woman knows taking the contraceptive pill as a much higher. Incidence of blood clots. Indeed i think from their point of view and this is where it gets complicated here in european union. Of course you've got european agency which is kind of the overarching body that authorizes drugs and authorized vaccines but you then also have national regulators. Who essentially gets to decide how those rules applied or or whether a member state should've finds by those rules when it comes to germany and where we saw a whole swathes countries at backing germany. The was the principal. There's also concerns about potential legal action because ultimately this is a state authorized vaccine service ad. That's been offered obviously to every german. And i think there was concern. That even could be farmed and they had data evidence to say that the wasn't increase increasing site. When it came to one specific type of blood clots the wilkinson's that may well open the german state of legal action and they wanted it to be investigated but yet. In retrospect all men many of these member states looking back. I answer that decision and decided it was the right one to do. Given the unfair. I would suggest damage reputation of astra zeneca for a whole load of ruse reasons across the eu and the damage that might do to the overall vaccine program. I'm not entirely sure was the right thing to

"Here with alex. Shaw and alex you are currently in sausalito in northern california. That is correct. Well thank you so much and tell me what is your usual job title because things are so unusual now but what box should we put you in right now. Well i don't like to put in boxes so i'll give myself options that Yeah my current role is director of strategy at we work. So i actually helping to reimagine the workplace But i'm also the co founder of cedar clean energy which is renewable energy consulting and advisory company based in shanghai. So we have two hats two boxes to put me in today. Wow that sounds pretty. Bifurcated it kind of a metaphor of your life. Yeah you could say that. I think that's the right word. Bifurcated and corona virus Covid nineteen situation has also kind of showed me that whatever box you're in is not really a box at all it just becomes a you know a starting point. Well said well talking starting points. What is the object that you have which in some way typifies your life in china. Yes oh my object is actually a hammock It is a portable travel hanoch and it is something that i have never left home without. You know it weighs seven grams. Excuse me seven ounces. Seven grams would be incredible. I've slept in train stations. Airports fields parks basically allows me to feel like wherever i am. I have a home. Which is kind of a nice feeling when you're someone who travels as much as i do. It's also incredibly useful for someone who travels on airplanes a lot because flights now don't give you blankets and these long flights where they blasted air-conditioning actually sometimes use it as a blanket. And i'm a big napper. So anytime i can i take my afternoon twenty minute to thirty minute nap and this gives me the confidence to do that. So whether i'm going to office. Or whatever is really. I can go and sneak out and find a little parker area to hang a hammock very nice okay and so in that thing unveils and it becomes a big hammock right exactly. Yeah it tax down. Size of fist and unfurled into a luxurious would feels like a queen size bed. I even seen research that sir that you've actually sleep deeper in a hammock because somehow mimics the feeling of being in a womb and so i love my hammock and yeah and it really does go even on You know again day to day to the office and things like that which is a funny segue. Actually because i could talk about how. There is a culture in china where people are encouraged to take a little nap during the middle of the day right. That is a great point. Yeah i i. Obviously i think one of the most shocking things about going into the work world elder into an office is seeing heads down at one pm in across the whole office and some of the most uncomfortable positions i've ever seen Definitely did not acquire that scale. Which i heard something. Most most of them had learned in school You know to be able to sleep with your head on a desk anywhere but Yeah that was certainly a fascinating part. Well from napping. It's hard to move onto the next topic because you are someone who is extremely active. Tell me about what you were up to in shanghai these few years like. How long have you actually been in china. So i moved to china october. Twenty eleven. the the china didn't really was not really in the plan for me. It was a six week trip that got extremely extremely extended within a few weeks. I had actually met someone who had become my business partner in the future. And his name's johnny brow as he's belgian national. We had exchange ideas and so together. We ended up honestly within a series of weeks. We were like had a business plan and we were ready. We already started doing project. So by fourth or fifth week in china we had secured a Interest from a hotel in union for us to come and do an assessment of their hotel to see what environmental technologies and solutions they could implement to reduce their energy costs. Be more sustainable. And essentially to engage the local community so after that and having that all happened so quickly i was like no brainer as i got cancelled. I'm canceling the return flight. I'm sticking around. We're going to see how this plays out. So that's the first part of this journey. Oh wow well. Let's fast forward them to what you have until recently been doing in china you. You mentioned that you have now done some work with we work. But what i'm more interested in is your own company. So tell me about where that story ended up for you in china yeah. So cedar clergy became the first company in china to offer rooftop solar financing for commercial industrial buildings. So wait a minute. Rooftop financing. Explain what that means. Yeah so rooftop. Solar financing what that means is essentially a mechanism or a way to pay for solar panels on a rooftop of a building so usually a factory or an office building without having to put up any money upfront. So usually that's a power purchase agreement model which means essentially third party investor pays for all the solar panels on the roof and the owner of that building then basically gets a savings or discount on their electric from day one so that owner of the building doesn't pay anything they only get savings and the investor of that project gets to sell the electricity to the building. Yeah interesting so when you first doing this in china had already heard about this model elsewhere and they were open to it or was there a period of education total education on they had heard about like a leasing model where you kind of rent the solar panels but never this model where you don't have to pay anything up front and so did a lot of education and all of our early customers. Frankly were western companies so we actually had to go to hong kong and found a hong kong sash singapore fund that had experienced in other markets. Doing this from there. We took us about eighteen months to really figure out all the nuances with the state grid with with how to do the the special purpose vehicles which are the entities and all of the paperwork attached to it. But once we did it was kind of a big breakthrough for us and for the market and very quickly this whole space took off so we were like we're onto something in china and we have the right secret sauce and we have this Opportunity in the opportunity in the market. I first market so much urgency. That i think it became too much right where you end up starting to make sometimes poor decisions or somebody's putting too much pressure on yourself or other people because it's just like this fear of seeing everyone else who's been in that position and then not capitalizing on it not executing properly or just getting passed by the competition because originally we were first to market so it was actually pretty easy by twenty sixteen. There were already several players popping up big chinese companies as well as a few foreign players. So you have the big panel manufacturers. Who are actually selling their own product in a way and then you have these engineering companies that have tons of resources. The and for them you know they had just infinitely more human power and capital So then it really became our whole differentiator in that was trust credibility and quality than we obviously added services onto that right. We added like verification. We added onsite advisories. We go onto the site do that sesame and so we were we kind of a then built our own niche within the niche. So then there was. No one else is doing this. We call it advisory services for renewable energy because what everyone wanted was the holy grail of being the engine company who got the contract to build it or the financing company. Who put the money in. Because that's a good moneymaker too and so we ended up. You know serving both sides

E.U. leaders consider travel bans, faster vaccine rollout to contain coronavirus variants

"And good afternoon from rather balmy zurich. For this time of year we begin. Today's program in this part of the world where you leaders have been holding late night. Talks in a bid to coordinate their response to the spread of virus. Brussels has stopped just short of an outright ban on non essential travel between member states but warned tougher restrictions could come within days if efforts to curb the virus fail. Well i'm joined on this topic right here in zurich by monocle twenty four security correspondent beds banners. Also at the center for security studies at eight hundred are good afternoon. Beco- can often entirely Surprises out of this. But maybe before we get to surprises. Maybe just bring us up to speed what happened amongst all of those same samsung screens. That you leaders had to look into the hours this morning. Indeed was a four hour online summit as one does these days the ninth. Eu summit actually since the pandemic has broken out and well. Let's say we had a fairly good picture even beforehand. What they will discuss. And what the actual positions of countries are we had a number of statements for example by the german leadership chancellor merkel but also her chief of staff saying that they may be forced to close borders even though this is a measure they they will not really want to take. It should be a drastic measure Dustbin luxembourg's prime minister. Probably most outspoken. Saying closing the borders in two thousand and twenty was a mistake. It would be a mistake to now so these were the positions hence also know very clear decisions. It's fairly vague at this stage. What was decided that indeed non essential travel across borders should be restricted. But it's not clear to what extent by what measures where exactly was on the lion. Eu commission president only made one thing. Clear that at this stage but that may change. That should not be blanket closure of borders at least that okay. So what you're saying. The distillation of that is no no no great surprises. We knew or this is going to go Now we also seen other other measures which have of course now been adopted by member. States individually France announcing off the back of this. That they're now going to expect that people will have to have a cronut s going into the country Can't be older than seventy two hours. Of course something which almost seems to be coming standard these days as much as they want to threaten. They were talking in the language of over the next days. But we know that this is kind of a grip on on the virus with the spread of it in the next few days So was this a little bit of. I don't want to say An exercise in pr to be seen to be doing something because the eu stands for sharing the who's built Really the foundations of its brand around the notion of open borders. There is certainly an element of pr in that and understandably so because we all remember last spring when countries unilaterally without coordinating with very neighbors Closed their borders full. Well sometimes even essential travels it was. It was quite strict at times We all remember that and now obviously the eu is trying to to appear that. They've learned from that that they want to coordinate on this. And that's why this summit has the border issue on agendas strongly to actually prevent countries from implementing measures. But as you just hinted these national measures are still really important where the france opposes the requirement to have a negative. Pcr tests for covid. That actually makes a huge difference. For whether belgians or luxembourg ins spanish people across the border to go grocery shopping or apply for jobs and so on so we still have these national measures. They have to be national also. Make sense it's it cannot all be e you wide but certainly there was a political push to appear like there's coordination. We're only seeing that in coming few days of an all. These suggestions that have been made will actually be put into detail and so it all comes down to the detail how this will be implemented.

Ethiopian military says it killed 15 Tigray rebels

"Now, and the tension between the government in Addis Ababa and the northern province of Tigre is continuing. You'll recall that armed conflict in early November broke out between the Ethiopian army. And the T p L F T T Dry People's Liberation Front government declared victory within a month. Now, the army has announced the killing and arrest of more civilian and military leaders off the TPLF. That speak to Martin clout. Now who formerly off this parish and is an expert on the Horn of Africa. Martin, What can you tell us about this announcement late last night by the Ethiopian government? Does it sound plausible? In terms of what they're saying? What are they? What are they telling us? They've done Well, yes, it does. I mean, it's it's clear that they have made a number of arrests and people are being killed. I mean, including some really quite significant figures like a very well do who was a former president of Tigre and the chairman of the Tigre People's Liberation Front. One thing one has to remember is that this is now a guerilla war Thebes. Gran's withdrew when McCallie fell. That's the capital of the region of Tigre. They withdrew to the mountains. There's now heavy fighting going on across the region with Eritrean forces from the north on damn horror militia. Backing the Ethiopian forces from the south and from the east on this is now a full scale war that is going on, which is frankly bogging down. Everybody involved. So when you when you talk about the war continuing, of course, the rhetoric coming out of Addis is that they have resolved this. Well, I don't think we have to take that terribly seriously. I mean, to be honest with you that the thing you need to ask yourself is why is it that all independent journalists apart from one Belgian, who managed to get in have been banned from the area. There aren't even embedded Ethiopian journalists up on the front. Onboard. The situation sounds frankly, pretty dreadful. What is what more given that the beginning of the conflict? We We weren't really able to get through too many people into dry where there there have been all sorts of reports of destruction of cultural artifacts. And so on. What? What more do we know about that? Well, I've just been able to stand up for what happened at the church off Mariam in in Axle, which is one of the holy sites off. Ethiopia. It's the site at which the Ark of the Covenant is believed to be kept, which could may only be seen by a monk. A guardian monk on dawn, the 15th of December What happened was there was a confrontation. Troops entered the compound, which they're not meant to do. There was a confrontation with the people inside. They were forced outside into the square and up to 750. People were shot by the horror and the Ethiopian troops outside on. That is not the only one. There's also now There's a report, which has been actually confirmed by the Ethiopians themselves that the oldest mosque in Africa, then Ajusshi mosque, which was built by the companions off the Prophet Mohammed in the fourth century, was also shelled. Theise. You can say this was done because the two grands built trenches in the area. But these these are really serious damage to the cultural artifact. And on top of that you have a number off factories, which were built in in a number of towns, which have been either trashed or demolished. And many of them are not being looted and that their contents taken to Eritrea.

What Is the Patriots' Plan at Tight End?

"Second question i had foil is regarded. These tight ends that they drafted in the third round as a fan of them. Going after two tight ends. Because i just. I was hoping that it was going to go back to the kind of offense like nam doesn't gronk were your and it. Obviously that isn't happening but it's almost it's almost like a redshirt of the two of them. This year. I think they have one. Catch combines the between the two of them was going into the season with them. So limited on getting offensive snaps. Was that planned or was it more based on their health or was it more based on that this belgian just wasn't seeing what he thought he was gonna see leading up to the draft. Stop yeah i well i think number one you earn and sort of what you see on the practice field. You know ossie was okay to start camp I would see either of them. Blue anybody away. And i know there have been some injury issues but i don't really think that's been much of a factor i mean you know you look at back in two thousand and ten when they had gronkowski and hernandez people kind of forget that hernandez was the one who hit i him he was he was a decent part of the offense from the gecko that year. We're gronk was really more a blocking tight. End do a little bit. By the end of the season he was catching touchdown passes and becoming more of a force and so guys have their own path. And it's all brian what they show how they get the offense how they execute stuff like that from people that i've talked to around the team. It just with devon. Aw siasi good for about two weeks and then tom for every nfl rookie. There comes a point in time when they realized the. Nfl is hard that these guys are good. That the coaches are tough that being a pro and having to wake up every day and do a day after day and sore body and all this stuff like it sets in like it's a profession and some guys look at it like You know. I'm not having a whole lot of fun anymore. This was like when you know when. I went to rutgers and i was playing on the baseball team. You know my second. I could come back from his hand surgery. I had but i really wasn't having that much fun anymore in kind of wanted to be more of a college kid so alice sort of left the game but these guys they realize it's it's a profession in some of them rise. Some of them love it some of them rise in say okay. I like this i can. I can meet the challenge and push through and some guy sort of shrink in from people i've talked to. That's been siasi. Here has not been a lot of mental toughness behind the scenes. I think you can see some of it in his play on the field in terms of just as body language when he's on the field donkey i think he has more of a chance. I think the consensus. And i know. Albert brewers working on something about ballot. Check in his drafting. And i think he's gonna talk about these titans because we've been chit chat and back and forth The past couple of days but about how like everybody says like dalton kimes overdrafted Qian's been almost like a big puppy where he's kind of all over the place and you think he wants to be there. I think he loves football. So i don't really worry about him. It's when he's going to get it. And i think once he gets it and he gets his role and they create more of like a crash jensen type of role for him. I think he's gonna flourish. And i think he's going to be a weapon for this team. Aussie i don't know what kind of future i don't know if he has any future here to tell you the truth and i think the patriots Fell into a trap. And i don't know if this was by design or just bella check being bell check. But what tom we're not idiots they certainly are idiots. We all knew the deal at receiver in tight end and so for belgium to come out of this draft trade out of the first round. Give up like a kenneth murray or whatever you wanted to do there and then take three defensive guys would your first three picks like when there were tight ends. Probably that you had rated higher there that you just passed on and all of a sudden you're scrambling it looked like to get off siasi and dalton keen like. That's problematic and to me. It illustrates sort of the personnel problems that they've had last four five

Belgians, Dutch halt UK flights, fearing COVID-19 variant

"Has bound passenger flights from Britain after detecting its first case of the highly contagious variant of coronavirus that surging through south of England. The Dutch government said he would join other you countries to explore ways to limit its further spread into Europe. The World Health Organization says it's in close contact with British officials over the emergence of the mutation. Daughter Maria van Kirk, over from the W Foto says there are a number of questions about the new variant virus that need answering. Does it spread easier? And if so, how much easier the severity of the virus and if it causes a difference in clinical picture or more severe disease? Also third, the ability of the body to develop antibodies. They're telling us that it is spreading easier and what they're working on is to understand if it's the variant itself that is causing its ability to spread more easily or if it's a combination of behavioral factors of individuals. Britain has imposed trendy new long term measures on the capital.

The History of the Internet

"To begin with we as a species. We've been trying to categorize an attain all the knowledge. We haven't to a database of sorts for a very long time right so for example in seventeen twenty. Eight ephraim champions globe maker publishes the cyclopes or a universal dictionary of arts and sciences. It is the earliest attempt to link by association all the articles in an encyclopedia or more generally all the components of human knowledge. He wrote in his preface quote this. We endeavored to attain by considering the several matters. E topics not only absolutely and independently as to what they are in themselves but also relatively or as they respect each other. So we've been thinking about like how to how to access knowledge how to obtain information and organize it in in a in a way so that more people can access it quicker classic enlightenment. Classic enlightenment am my right So in one thousand. Nine hundred belgian lawyers and bibliographer paul outlet and on revilla contain proposed a central repository for the world's knowledge organized by the universal decimal classification. It was called the mondays And it would eventually house. More than fifteen million index cards one hundred thousand files and millions of images and in nineteen thirty four outlet further advanced his vision for the radiated library in which people worldwide will place telephone calls to his quote mechanical collective brain. And we'll get back information as tv signals. So this was a theory. This is something that they thought could get off the ground then in nineteen thirty six h. g. wells first predicts what's called the world brain He wrote the whole human memory can be and probably short time. We'll be made accessible to every individual time is close at hand when any student in any part of the world will be able to sit with his projector in his own study at his or her convenience to examine any book. any document in an exact replica. Study accurate it's pretty accurate so the world brain was to be a central repository of the world's knowledge organized by complex taxonomy invented by wells. So clearly there has been a precedent for desiring this kind of thing. So the concept of data communication or transmitting data between two different places through an electromagnetic medium such as radio or an electric wire predates the introduction of the first computers right. Such communication systems were typically limited to point to point communication between two end devices. Like semaphore lines are telegraph systems and telex machines so these can be considered early precursors to this kind of communication and the telegraph in the late. Nineteenth century was the first fully digital communication system. So that's just cool trivia fact it been a deeply so up until about nineteen sixty computers were huge unwieldy and self contained. You could use them as a tool. But you couldn't necessarily make them talk to each other or transmit information across any distances using them but there were a bunch of people working towards making that happen so a man named christopher stray cheesy who became the oxford university is first professor of computation filed a patent application for time sharing in february of nineteen fifty nine in june that year. He gave a paper called time sharing enlarge fast computers at the unesco information processing conference in paris where he passed the concept onto to lick lighter of mit like lighter vice president at both derek and newman inc and they discuss a computer network in his january. Nineteen sixty paper called man computer symbiosis so a quote from that is a network of computers connected to one another by wideband communication lines which provide the functions of present day libraries together with anticipated advances in information storage. And retrieval and other symbiotic functions. So super like great reading. You know just like pull it up right. Now read it. Yeah take it to the beach. You know something really exciting. So paul baran then publishes reliable digital communications systems using unreliable network repeater nodes the first of a series of papers that proposed the designed for distributed networks using packet switching. And we'll talk about that for a second. Method used to this day to transmit information over the internet and then a little later. Donald davies the. Uk's national physical laboratory or n. P. l. independently developed the same idea. So there's a little bit of like linear here So while baron used the term message blocks for his units of communication davies. Use the term packets so i was like what the hell is packet. Switching so packet switching is essentially and i. I used the the metaphor of of charlie and the chocolate factory. Ok you know mike. Tv how said the tv you're broken up into little pieces gets reassembled on the other side. That's basically what packet switching is with. Data the pieces get sent over in smaller pieces because they can travel over greater distances being smaller and then they get reassembled on the other side so that's packet switching s perfect. I'm gonna get a lot of emails. Okay so. Jc are lick lighter so jc are lick lighter. He was known as either. Jc are like friends. Call them lick several shame. I guess it's shorter than say j. C. r. guess so or just like yourself jim anyway He became the director of the newly-established information processing techniques office. Or the ipo within the us. Defense department's advanced research projects agency or darpa. So then robert. Taylor becomes the director of the information processing techniques office. Pto in nineteen sixty six and he intended to realize lighters idea of an interconnected networking system so he proposes to his boss the arpanet so the advanced research projects agency net which is a network that would connect the different projects that arpaio was sponsoring so a way to like keep everything together and at the time each project has its own specialized terminal and unique set of user commands so in order to talk to each terminal you had to physically go to the computer terminal that only spoke to that individual one so he was like what if we just had one computer that connected to everything and that was arpanet basically bam bam so there were like great. I love this. So they awarded. Arba awarded the contract to build this network to bolt beranek and newman or bbn technologies. And they're involved in the early stages of the internet in a major way and so all mentioned them like a bunch of times so the first arpanet link was established between the university of california los angeles and the stanford research institute at twenty to thirty hours on october. Twenty ninth nineteen. Sixty-nine the first message was the word log in that's boring. I know it's super boring computer guys. I was necessary to jump. It wasn't the first text message. Merry christmas oh. I don't know maybe it was being at least that s something. Yeah or what. Does it come here. I need you. That's the one for the telephone log in. Yeah right fine. at least it's easy to remember. Yeah i message sent over. The internet is the message lock-in so sent over arpanet between the network node at ucla and a second one at sri. So leonard kline rock of ucla said at the ucla and they typed in the l. and asked sri by phone if they received it got the l. Came the voice reply. Ucla typed in the. Oh asked if they got it and received got the oh. ucla then typed in the g. And the darn system crashed boy the beginning on the second attempt. It worked fine so by the end of that year. Four host computers connected together in the initial arpanet so this was like the beginning of of the end. Basically

HIV Under the Microscope

"I this week there was cause for celebration as a covid. Vaccine became a regulator approved reality in the uk. All the time we've been waiting and hoping for the day when the searchlights of science would pick out invisible enemy. Give the pala to stop the enemy from making us ill. And now the scientists have done it and they used the virus itself to perform a kind of biological jujitsu and in fact because of that jujitsu the uk has become the focus of world media attention as the first western nation to formally approve corona virus vaccine for public use. Nevertheless some are questioning. Why britain's been able to move so fast according to the uk education secretary govern williamson. Speaking to see it's because we live in great britain. I just reckon we've got the very best people in this country and we've obviously got the best medical regulators much better than were french. Arab muslim belgians have much better than me americans. That doesn't surprise me at all because we're much better country than every single was okay but if that is actually true then what is that. We're better at in reality. The buck stops with a body called the nhra there. The medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency and down to them. That we've been able to approve sizes new coronavirus vaccine in record time and to explain what's involved what gaps still remain in our knowledge. And what is happening with the other major vaccine contender. The one being made by astrazeneca. His gino martini from the royal pharmaceutical society. Any new medicine has to be reviewed and tested the mitchell ray. The job is to inspect review. The data that's being generated so foams physical companies have to pay the testing. We'll clinical trials. Testing will phase one face to face free with effectively. The the medicine in this case. The vaccine is tested in human volunteers and subjects which representative while the population people. You're gonna begin the vaccine to create these clinical trials. The data's collected and the whole basis have put together a dossier and that's been reviewed by the shaarei in this case. What is the damage of being working in real time with manufacturers review the data in real time so that's why we've been able to get an accelerated. Is it as simple as that. Because what some people. Think quite legitimately appointing out is that normally. It takes ten years to make a drug or vaccine and get that to market. Which means by the time it gets there. You've got ten years in some cases of follow up from the first time a person was exposed to that drug to the time at which you begin to marketed. Here we've got ten months so we don't have that long term insight true. What's happening here. Is that the nhra actively viewing people being executed. So there's already assistant quotes called surveillance. And so they'll be muller shaking people. Boxing aged just in case there are any adverse events alba to understand. The nhra is a very very good regulatory agency. Got great expertise in looking out biological jokes. Vaccines whom the signing. What data is needed sensual. Quality and safety and of course efficacy. Interestingly though the nhra have approved this agent for uk use but the the european counterpart for the hr a have not approved this more. Broadly across the rest of the eu and other countries in the eu. Haven't done what the uk's done. So why have we got that difference. And if it's good enough for us why is it not good enough for the rest of europe. But these things do happen. I mean differences do occur in interpretation with with data particularly when you have those as just the s but again a while alluded to before is immature About could lead robertson so a lead coordinates when they were part of the mea for all the you took applications like said sixty percent of new medicines being less than ten years or so the amateur were coordination. I got great experience in this kind of area and a great network of keeping lead his experts. Who can give council on this data so you know. I'm i'm fairly confidence. That amateur are happy. With the safety and efficacy and quality than out of oxygen. There are some gaps in our understanding and in the data we've had generated so far though. Aren't there for instance. No one under eighteen has had the agent tried on them so they won't be being vaccinated pregnant women. Currently there regarded as a risk group. But they've not been included intentionally in the charles. They've been actually excluded from the trials. So how we gonna deal with the fact that there are these individuals or groups in the population that haven't been actively explored as time evolves. They will obviously investigate. Those subjects will be evolving. The plan with the mitchell ray in finding house was the best way to include those people.

"What are you working on these days. So kate mentioned i'm a principal developer fall for delegation. And we're working primarily with asia dot net. So that's that's really nice like a to really really out on on on the latest technology around that In my free time. I spent quite a lot of time on be units Which started about one and a half years ago which is a place of testing framework. Well according to my wife. Lisa spend too much time on that but that's also very fun. It's like it's have your own baby and you can. You don't have customers in such as that required to deliver in a certain schedule timeframe not accurately so so i get sort of really really go deep and play and experiment on and get something right. At least i hope so. So you started on. The unit before blazer was even jessica even server side. I'm trying to think back. I started units back in february or march in two thousand nineteen. It wasn't called that it was. I had a very microsoft product name back then. It was called the race testing framework or something long. Did i buried descriptive name. But it wasn't there. Google friendly because it. Yeah all all the in that. Just rent a belgian generals from keywords. But i i watched one of steve sanderson's presentation someplace and got bit excited. I like most people did around that time. And then i started playing around with trading just creating a component library. Just trying it out. And see what i could and couldn't do with and being a big fan of tipton development. They're kind of like. I'm not smart enough not to write test for my court because it'll break very fast if i start. Factoring are miss something. So i realized there wasn't anything available to test your quote with place at that time so i sort of build something. That wasn't really you know ready for primetime at all and it works But it had a few issues Then around september last year. I believe steve came out with this chatting prototype. And and that's all. I sorta inc what he had their into into what became be unit and edits so he had an all things where he was able to sort of get x to the component testing and be smart about how to get the mark of the component. And that sort of basically made what i had. Something i quit. You know reasonably go out and see where you can actually use this and and from there. It's it's it's not a getting some attention and community started building around that and people started using using it for real so it's been exciting but it's it's fun challenge to sort of be be part of something like that and suddenly have people depending on you delivering a something of a reasonable quality. Okay so you. So you just mentioned that you can after borrowing some code from st sanderson and mixing that with the giardi had you can Test the markup is generated from a component. How do you set that up. How do you actually get it to where you can use the component in the test. That's a really good question. So the first thing. I try begging way back whilst just to see if i if i knew my component and try to chest institute like you would in a regular unit test. That doesn't really work. You quickly realize because the news doesn't actually know how to produce output like stephen and the team. There have made a really good decision about having teens. Raisins of concerns between what a component is and what the fingers that renders the component and. So what you need to be able to actually verify. All lanes baked the mockup that a component producers that you need something that can take the component you want to and render it and then hand you back what else created and this is sort of what what bid unit encapsulates in in the context that you can ask to rent a component and you can pass it parameters and what you get. Back is an abstraction. I called arinda component. That object contains the instance off the component. You asked to be rented but it also contains the role model that the component producers but inside of that we use angle shop which is a shout based library with html and it's actually Competing of huma five spec so i passed role model. We get from from from from from from basically the data shaver runtime which i'm using in the vagrant bucs twinkle shop and then it passes of that and then we have Just the same guys. We have in the browser to query the generated which has represented in estan notes shop. So you can use your cruiser dick to all an in glaze. Actually i have sought options short hands for that. I have find find all niffer that takes us next so you can go in and in very it feels like it doesn't feel like i guess you i- testing in innocent kind of way like you have to set a lot of things up and you have to actually run that the abdication in a in a full instance and you have browser. You're automating. maybe it's hit up but it's still being automated. It's just one and completely shop and everything you winning and components shop and then you get the output and you can carry that through the english. Api

Hungarian lawmaker resigns after caught fleeing a 'sex party' by climbing down a drainpipe

"Know. The career of a close ally of the hungarian prime minister viktor orban who was also an emmy p. has ended in a welter of scandal and suspicion as his actions threaten the public valleys of the right wing fidesz party lily by is a reporter at politico and she's here with more lily. It's with all the key elements. We have sex politics lawbreaking drugs and intrigue sitting comfortably. Tell us what happened It's quite an extraordinary story So basically over the weekend. A member of the european parliament. You'll jeff siad of the blue announced that he is resigning He is a member of hungary's ruling fetus party but It's important to understand that he's not just an ordinary member. he's one of the co founders of the party. He was there with prime minister. Viktor orban and others in nineteen eighty-eight when they started this political journey back then as young liberals he has been the prime minister's inner circle ever since and has played a key role in hungary and politics including the lead author of one of the hungarian government's main political projects. The two thousand eleven constitution. So he's really a an important figure especially in the intellectual circles of the ruling party so when he resigned that sparked a lot of questions. Initially people were wondering are there any divisions within the ruling party. What's going on. And then on tuesday details started leaking. I two local belgian press that that a member of the european parliament had attended a party on friday night in brussels. That was by police. Now it's important to Stand for those of our listeners. Who who are not familiar with bowel gyms rules that we have pretty strict covert related restrictions here about gatherings so belgian. Trust reported that there were about Twenty five naked men this particular party which at police had raided for violating the health related restrictions. And what prosecutors later said is that a passer-by had seen someone sleeping along the gutter This person It turns out Mr sire the a member of the european parliament was apprehended and then police found narcotics in his backpack after the leaks. Uche the politician. He admitted to having been present at the party but denied that the narcotics were his and this created a huge storm and hungarian politics given closely associated. He has personally with the prime minister. An element of his behavior do you think was most offensive to the party. I mean could he got away with it if it had. Just been about breaking lockdown rules. Well it's it's hard to tell but one thing to to note is that Ever since the late nineteen eighties when fetus was a young idealistic liberal political party on the were informal conversations within the party about mr sires Sexual orientation this is something. He has never discussed in public. And of course it's it's up to him to to to discuss But but within the party party members were chatting about this and at the time Wait what people say now is that they simply did not care They saw that. It's his private matter of what he does in his private life. And it's it didn't impact his initial political career. He was The group leader of the fidesz faction in the european in the are in the hungarian parliament. Initially in one thousand nine hundred ninety so he was quite an important figure within that party and so you know feed us because of its strategic trajectory. It's important to note you know it used to be a liberal party. It evolved over the years. It moved further and further to the right at today. It's a party that has been criticized for for what Lgbt activists call Anti gay policies but initially it did not have that kind of ideology back in the in the eighties and nineties. But i mean as you say. He had significant input into the very conservative constitution which holds family values it doesn't recognize. Lgbt rights he's married to a female judge judge as you say they've been whispers about his own sexuality so i wonder how this has affected the party. How it's affected feeders. In terms of just sheer hypocrisy. That's right so. I think that the opposition in hungary has really seized upon this issue Some have talks about What what one. Opposition politician called the moral bankruptcy Of the party. And i think that this will be an issue in the twenty. Twenty two election campaigner there will be elections then and it's already looking like a tough race even though Hunger in minister viktor. Orban is in quite powerful position and critics say an unfairly powerful position because of the covid crisis and because of economic problems in hungary like most other countries experiencing It's already said to be a tough campaign and having this kind of Scandal so close to to the real start of of of the race. Is i think putting more pressure on the party. And that's why. I think on wednesday or bounded something quite untested hinted for him He he gave a statement saying that. What cya did was unacceptable and indefensible and he said that This kind of behavior has no place in the values of the political family. And this was quite extraordinary. In hungarian context because i was with such a close friend and ally for over three decades And it's very very rare Side did quit the party. Officially on wednesday as well It's very rare for someone of that stature to to be publicly criticized by by the party to actually quit just quickly before we go. We know that he was a key figure. In brussels. In terms of of hungarian paulo within the eu. And i wonder if this will have an impact on the covert relief budget. Talks where hungary's vetoing the because the eu's insisting that the country conforms to various elements of the law so prime minister or bond was are speaking on hunger and state radio just about an hour ago and he repeated that hungary is came to its original hard line position on the eu budget and rule of law is a big conflict about that because a lot of eu countries in the european parliament one to length distribution of funding to respect for the rule of law There has been a lot of speculation about whether this is going to weaken or bounce position. a bit hard to tell right now We will see. I'm next week when

"One stop I mean there was there were some moments in seconds thing where like Oh, it's eighty s telling bought. Asked to push obviously told Hamilton at the same time. But are they going to be coming in saying another one? They just basically edging away from her and putting the pressure on MBA like come with us if you if you can put it if you stop, we'll copy you off. So, yeah that that's what that's what the strategy again he did give us a second opportunity, which is the restart. What did you make of that Luke because I saw when I when I saw happening live I think is in my rates report for Dot Com. Look like how it's in court him napping a little bit as a safeguard come in and they were headings was the bus stop chicane. Yet definitely I think looked like pastas will have more maybe most wired about what's going on behind him ready than than ahead of him which. I think again, this is just another thing that you can't waiting what nine eight nine Grand Prix now and and being just such a torture false in Formula One for so many years is that you know how to. Louis ounce do that and in sleep, and again it was that was really the second by the Cherry. The Batas have the second chance to and his only other Charles Ready to take San any winning this Grand Prix on again. Hamilton just hadn't seen often cornered off and I think spa for places like track. Really. Being the man in front is such a disadvantage at times just because of that long long run when you come lasource all the way to the end of the camel straightening telecom by that is such a it's so dangerous and can be so exposed there. But he just both times was Abbas cover off So-so simply and yeah I just think he just deserve credit for that and boss asks had absolutely no response to Hamilton's performance today he said after the race that he was asked any point did you Think you a quick than Lewis and he said a diplomatic and said I can't really except I'm running behind and therefore my my ties a struggling and I mean as here and all of that. But I, mean, no I think Lewis Hamilton was on another level again today and I think boss asks was really made a firm look second-best and there was a point I was thinking well, verstappen is going to get in there as well. Because the rebel was sort of lurking a little bit before fading away. Yeah a big Gulf between seamless eighties drivers today and that Golf was there yesterday in qualifying wasn't a gentleman? We talked about this on the podcast last night. What the like what's the on I want somebody's there on these social media channels could. Watch again and the way he treats nine car. He's absolutely just it just it just does everything he wants to the first time asking he's just got the confidence to to be able to deliver with their but isn't that offers can he's a big gap again he's lost he's defeated in this race. You know he's obviously he said in a press conference as quite pissed off and is now being even qualifying because of course, they were Matra Pole positions last year but. He's just it just doesn't feel like it's ever really coming together for him this season after that first race, street. I think it must be so frustrating as a sportsman to. Spend, your entire career since he start causing to try to get into the best from Lanka do that. So you fight well, you work your way up you make sacrifices you get in from on chance you're put in the best one on car. Then, he just so happens over teammate. WHO's may well go down as the best phone one drove revolt time. Up Against You, you get comprehensively beaten in the first season me start making progress then he make gains and Veltri has been. So close this year we you know we we're talking about normally. One temp may be difference now in qualifying between them and the swings around and sometimes. Goes one way or another, but you little difference in it, and there's only tiny little factors are now separating Lewis Valerie but ultimately, those tiny factors that make Lewis say brilliant they make him stand out because they are little factors. The. Other drivers just don't have access to. If Veltri to feel that you're in the best position, you've ever been your crib driving better than they've ever been and it's still not good enough. It must be soul destroying wasting. So I saw I saw a tweet after the race which said, the F. on is really missing Nico Rosberg because he was able to defeat Lewis Hamilton and get under his skin that was a big factor. You know he was able to I was upset. Is the way they the way they collided on track and things like that. But what was well how I'm going back to this race because they were and? This was caught there was a radio message in the first stints where both sides threes engineer. We have one overtake left effect the real one overtake us. Don't we and and his engineers like we but we have agreed not use it on the other car and quite biting comes back with I. Don't remember that oil never heard of that. Did you think that was the first sign of Batas perhaps trying to be a bit more bit more pointing in this battle with Mercedes because what he's doing the moment isn't going to cut it does he need to employ some Nico? Rosberg esque tactics to win I didn't know to type that and actually I have my feet up in the old Heseltine Theater and drinking my Mug of tea is happened not red wine and. Just, come back to me. I. Don't think our retrieve the multi from the lot Haseltine theater. It's probably still sitting there with a little. Bit at the bottom festering, which will have to go through the dishwasher but. Anyway it's it's very tricky with his deadpan and on CA. To work whether he's being serious on obviously he's a racing driver. He doesn't want to get it handed to him by his teammate every week, but he knows his place in that too so. After listening to a few times I thought it was just sort of like a witty retort stroke comeback which he might easily followed up with. By. The way anyone who says Roessberg should come back on twitter should delete their account. Guy That's not journalists towed. Leaky what joined the wolf Media Code after the race he did explain what that was all about. They did nick did yeah. So I asked him about that and said like, can you just clarify what the rules are between guilty drivers and he said there are no rules free to raise like absolutely. Able to. He said that basically boss asked about the asking do we have that one overtake left and obviously with is forward thinking that I can use to catch and potentially overtake him and he was reminded that no, you don't have debatable. We said we wouldn't use against each other and total wolf explained that what the thinking was was they wanted to save overtaken save that higher mode in case fend off. From Max's Dot com behind and he was so the real threat I think with that like it was just an Tyson Wolf quarter miscommunication between the team and Batas. So I think it was that's that's probably all it was the team happened not sort of clarified. You've got this engine mode bar we only want to use it when you absolutely need to protect the team result nominees it's trying catcher team. Potentially of harm your own prospects of finishing second and cost us too because. That's what Mercedes ultimately.

"It didn't they both ended up getting out just the Bounce Day to George Russell incidentally fifth a fifth bracing key for Williams this season but. Just, again, another really bad day for Ferrari says worse than really baddest disastrous David Ferrari really disasters we can really They came here expecting to be on the back for a bit. They know their engines down power and I've never seen. That's probably the manifested itself numerous problems that they need to take the downfalls off to not lose too much time on the straights because they're leaving exposed in sectors one on three. He didn't the downfalls off you can't get the. Kind of grip and levels, you need to get that heating the temperature in the second sector. So. Then toys done he tough when you're sliding so that doesn't work. Then you put down on your to slow in sectors one and three. And then the tires still in the right in the middle sector seven at just a bit lost. I don't think they know why it's gone. So wrong here because they even they probably weren't expecting it to be this bad as their arrived. And I think we'll say then they've got themselves snarling taking a bit more of a gamble. So the weather conditions tomorrow, it mixed put extra emphasis on Cassini be much better position for the wet conditions often they've done. which obviously forever hampers them in qualifying. Say A lot of factors have come together but. A lot of head scratching Manila on Monday I, think. Absolutely, in a good thing that only got the to Moina races for them in monster and Majella coming up Majella being varies one, thousand, three Grand Prix celebration for them. But probably not a victory celebration although you know they're picked up a couple of podiums close second in I. You never know what can happen. Other thing that'd be that'd be pretty much a stretch I'm staying with a Ferrari story, the marine that was interesting comment from Toto Wolff use of. Alluding to certain decisions that remade Ferrari in recent years that obviously now you know that sort of led ultimately where they are I'm presumably he's talking about the decisions do whatever it was never officially confirmed with the power unit particularly in the last couple of years and in two thousand nineteen say, yeah not missing an opportunity anti-thai Wolf to to gap points in the legacy of that engine deal between Foreign Ferrari still upset Mercedes especially table for. I think he's also. A bit upset about you know the way Ferrari publicly kind of dealt with it never really admitted or. Confirmed engine changes and So I think he's just he's there I mean totake didn't say didn't name any individuals is pointing out didn't. Explain. The specific or didn't he expense Specif- war aspects of froze upset about Things Fair to say that still remains some tension there between toto and certain individuals for and. The rest we can only guess Let's go back to the front and the grid and for Snapping Johnnie Roy Story for office for common exports come about that talk radio message that he came on just after passing the chequered flag Q. Three was really quite. Vocally frustrated because he said, you know ran out of energy is in battery energy from. Pushing the car foods on the runs, the line but. It didn't ultimately feel that costumes place even when he was very, very close algae city. When you when you talking about, you know hunt thing just over hundreds of a second you obviously think. Oh. That was the difference Mealey's energy, and you go back to the all aspects of the lap. A laptop alternately is the result of thousands of factors that come together. And the energy gets deployed in a manner by which gives you the best lap time. So sure he could have they could have changed energy configuration to have the energy. The end of the lap probably would have been slower because he lost energy somewhere else on the lap. So interesting natural action. You feel frustrated because you know if had energy. More you could have got pole position, but then again if it had. Twice, as big engine, he'd on position. So you can't the some butts that really fittings Nour's that however frustration they are. you've got your amount of energy to use you deploy in the best manner possible just happen at played Allah. Silently that is an interesting to hear for stopping night that he doesn't think the ripple be challenge. Po Position Stein next week when of course, the technical directive finally comes into force, which means that teams will be forced just have one engine mode for qualifying the race But yeah, that was the last time. Sad's party mode was in full swing. Do you think he got the send off? It deserved I'm intrigued especially intrigues and I will happen next weekend because. I think when the the announcement, I? Well, not announcement because it'll be done in secret letters and private. That's just teams. But when when that first came out, the inference was the. Party made we wiped away supposed half second advantage. It Mercedes got gone and then the racism super super close again because there's not much difference between the engines but as it's developed. You know what's going to happen is that show those party might as well be there on Saturday it will mean that. The damage that gets done by ease. Party. Can they get transferred to extra power and races? So we're just moving whatever extra power energy Mercedes half from a Saturday to a Sunday. Also heard some suggestions from people this weekend. there'd be surprised if the qualifying gap between Mercedes and rebels any smaller amounts so as well. So I'm intrigued tonight what's going to happen? Well, WE'RE GONNA end with another team called reasons to be happy today, which is gonNA. Team seemed a little bit sort of lost in Barcelona to say when view directions little bit wrong with the setup and just Jim really didn't feel it was right inform when it came to the higher downforce. That track requires but like Silverstein you take the down for us off red doing a lot better. They're absolutely rapid in sector one and sector three. And nineteen causes upset because we said at the start damning record a brilliant fourth. Year how do you rent is agent gray spoke to Daniel? Tonight chuffed after they finished P. to yesterday. So that should team as she felt a little bit flat because it'd been too good that kind of bill their expectations up and. If qualified fifth or seventh, which would have been step forward from Spain, it would have been let down. So to come out there and delivered a row to start was fantastic. Yeah. He said that Reynaud Cau- comes alive in as much happier in low downfalls configuration. Gets a balanced there. That's not there when it's in high downforce trim. feels confident in it can push the straight on speed is so there's obviously an inherent concept that's coming out of these rented caused that. Works better than these low downforce trim. But by twelve fifteen, because we got spa, this weekend is pretty low downforce. We got among the next which is. Minimum. We got some quick tracks come up with Jello along straight. We don't know yet which way that's going to go for teams got such. You have a long straight. The Bahrain outer loop is going to be lower downforce and high-speed. So there's a lot of tracks coming up which could be renting. Indeed we certainly happy to keep an eye on everything in the types who running the temperature running as it were But yeah, let's say let's just end John. White..

Which there's a lot of good stuff one. You just mentioned the orpheus. I think it's called. The everything lasts forever. Is that right Brian. The latest batch of this. It's the the one that just was released this year. I think it's been aging in bottle since last year methode traditional which is a beer brewed in the lambeth style following all of the requirements and traditions but not brewed in Belgium so orpheus and Jason Pelletier follows those rules pretty good. We've got a little SH- may read. Which is a double. We've got a devel- which is a Belgian strong gold now which is kind of a classic Belgian beer that people go on and Brian. I've got one here I. I didn't get out of the House. I've been doing my social distancing in Brian. I'll be honest I've been. I've been under the weather this week staying at home and Brian. This is true. I have to go. Get TESTED FOR CORONA virus. So wish me lock. I haven't been tested yet. I guess on the one about five days so we'll see we'll see what goes on there. So what are your thoughts? I mean like in terms of symptoms that you think and you gotTa do you think in you don't i. So here's the thing that gets me. I've got all the symptoms that they say but I I don't feel like I've got this severe as what the people I've watched some videos and stuff what the people are saying they've got and I don't feel that I've got this severe as some other. So we'll see. Brian. We'll see what goes on. But anyhow that's what we'RE GOING TO GET INTO BRIAN. How about some news for us? What's in the news? The beer guys have the scoop time for headlines. All right so we'll start off with Some obligatory notes about closures. We've got green flash closing or not closing but laying off a meaningful quote unquote number of people. We've got the shoots laying off one hundred people as a result of this but believe it or not actually found some non corona virus news this week and I kind of want a brick. British archaeologists have discovered a stash of Victorian era. They were digging on a site in former Tetley's brewery in northern English city of Leeds and they found six hundred neatly stacked bottles neatly stacked bottles at a in archaeology site They were dating from around the eighteen eighty s and many of them are still full of beer. Believe it or not even more interesting. Is they've done lab analysis on the Old Beers and found that it was A. They were three percent ails so they were really like like a mild English session at drinking. Yeah the interesting spiciness. Though is they have a healthy dose of refreshing lead like thirteen times. Who SAYS SAFE FOR YOU TO CONSUME? So I don't know how anybody of that era actually lived beyond twenty to be honest they not many of them. Dead from what? I hear Brian so crazy. Stuff we listen to the beer. Guy's Radio Show.

You know like you could talk about West C. or something but you can't go anywhere and just find that intimate you can get in pretty much every beer store you're gonNA ever walk into.

"Don't even remember if they wanna live. Who cares anybody but damn close? I'm eh rooting for roll tide. Don't say that on this show at least butcher. Okay Next step we're going to talk about the quads that we have in the run-up here's a quick description of the Sh- may grand reserve. So you pretty much ordered as I'll have this may blue is usually how you're ordering. It actually is a Belgian strong dark strong ale is the proper classification description of it. It is a nine percent. ABC It's actually People tend to drag the quads out during the wintertime. In you know holidays because it has a lot of Christmas spices in it gives them to grandma's. You'll go to bed or warm you up and this one is dark ale that re- has rich flavors of mulling rolling spices and Caramel with a smooth palate in warming finish is what Chm as written here. Wow so for the La- trapped wide Again this was made back in. Nineteen ninety-one It was actually A ceremony I'm sorry it was. They baptized her beloved quad. Ride the Conan having brewery baptized her beloved quiet under the proving glances of the monks. Okay I really quite sure how you baptized by break a bottle on a bottle or food or holy water. We're looking across the qualified. By the way you're yeah so it's closely guarded. Recipe became reality. The first quad beer was in the world was born. Nineteen 1891. Wow that's you would think they'd been making it for like the first. I'LL BE THERE I. It's known for being one of the heavier piles of the latrobe Trappist sales and is a part of this. AOL style full warming an intensive tastes multi. He was sweet tones of dates and Caramel. This about hippopotamus. Anyway so Dave what did you think of the quads and your a choice between number one and number two. It's a it's to me. These two were the ones that sort of opened up the most As a warm Davin Lake the flavor just real big in both of them I think it got bigger in the second one though a number two and like for all the the dark fruit in just the big the big sugars that are in there so I like number two better brown sugar brown sugar. I'm going to have to yeah I know I disagree. I disagree but you know the odd part is actually picked number two as my favorite when these were a little colder now that they have warmed up you know as as difficult as it was was depicted in the beginning. It's even more difficult. I might even change my vote quote unquote Will break I know right. There's a little Manal Ling note in the number one. That's kind of throwing me off the NALOXONE. Okay well I know there's a in the style but I don't like them exactly so they're not number number one just got bigger sweeter like molasses raisins you know your typical like what you would expect out of a quad number two for me. got a little more. It was it was already a little more off profile from what I would approach a quad looking for Which is why I liked it initially? But I don't know there's like this coffee like kind of undertone to it that I don't find pleasant but but it got stronger. It seemed as it warmed. GOTCHA GOTCHA YEP remark. Would you think of the quads here here. I thought that For me at least that the second one quality to it was Richard a look at I mean again I drink drink with is first darker a lot darker brown at more of a brown Hue kind of a BA- Beige Brown type head almost It was a little less lacy though kind of you look for that Didn't seem to hold ahead. Hold ahead as much but that could have been because it was higher higher attenuation More alcohol I don't know but for me it had really great fruit basket of flavor turns esters it had a lot of raisin plum and some chocolate in there a little bit of coffee so you know. Yeah Yeah and Esther so for me. At least I thought it was one that I could save her. You know it was a savoring kind of taste. And of course I gave it the Belch. Tae Belts test how to do All Man Yeah it was just really good to re swallow. Yeah and a good flavor through the nose joke right now my hold him back whereas the first I won it was it was good. There was more stone fruit in the first one and I got some toasted caramel and Some candy bar kind of notes on it but I thought of the two. It was a little bit more oxidized just as I as I kind of compared compared them. But I think we're we're we're we're drinking imported beers and you get that anyway just because they're imported that'd been sitting in a whole lot of places. Hold a ship here train truck. Yeah maybe not a plane pack of a warehouse then definitely one hundred four to two definitely. Tim What did you think of the quite quite the quad. The Quad flight. Here I mean this this indecision they both. These beers are excellent. I think Unfortunately drank all of number two so I didn't see how it warmed up so I can't comment on that But the you know. They're both super complex number. Two it had more of the dark fruit flavor more sugar more like Kinda fig MM sweetness and thought number one was cleaner It was lighter in color as we said in like Reverend Mark said he kind of drink with your I see see the clarity. And then the lighter color and just tastes like a cleaner finish Overall like the first one more but this this was pretty tough because these are both solid. Oh I agree. This is a message in the messages. Be Yes and I would say beware because these are both really really good and I would sit sit around and probably drink both of these all day long ones nine percent one ten percent or listen to see the of the latrobe is ten in percent and the Chamois is nine percent getting a little bit of trouble with that. I am already and I'm not gonNA say the word Hummer at all in today so the lies I just had one beer offer. No rulebook Rubican Atwood poindexter. Really you know. A bit of a tossup between these definitely visually very very different you you know and I think a lot of people are ordering quad they go. I want something rich and dark and Belgian strong's and you know you look at things that are have that big dark appearance in them and you go. Oh yeah bring me the raisins and the plums and you know so visually I would say that. Definitely number two Has a a lot of people you know visually but the taste profile is very rich. You know for both these irs. Let the plums and stone fruits and raisins. Through these reason. I just would probably drink all of these all day long. It's interesting but I wrote number one as being more complex even though so Between the two choices I actually chose number two and I tend to more more I would tend to gravitate towards more complex says a natural aspect of my own taste profile but yeah at the end of the day these both had the same rating for me. I just happened to choose number or two over number one You know just something hit me a little bit better about number two but honestly I would sit down and pound and drink both these all all day long. Twist my arm make me choose. I'm wisher well. After our collective discussion our choice out of which quad we liked was number number two in our suds rating for that was a five minute. What is it finally finally.

"The American craft beer industry is at a radical a radical moment in its history. So let me just speak directly told you brewers. You fell milk sugar Yay for that. It makes beer your thicker and sweeter. We get it. LACTOSE is a doubt. That's cool milkshake. Ip Yeah I can do that man but when you where does it stop really lactose logger. Milk Sugar Mitchell Lada. Please brewers stop this before it's too late. My love how Tim is just nonleague as head. The variously taking notes Alabama. Yes satellite by that. Yes by that what I did on Tuesday. You're telling me that last at third bag lactose in there along with peanut butter extract. Well it works there were people by. Yeah they love a twinkie. Heff of ice and better and I like the lactose have a narrow Imperial poured myself. Okay brewer some hints fitted. The candidates legal is at the latest works. Yeah but what about the lactose intolerance among us. Well then you just have to drink cider. Yeah baby you're law. All Right Reverend mark tells a little bit more about what makes some beers travis. I'll tell you a little here. A Trappist brewery is one. That's located actually in a monastery and operated under the supervision of Trappist Monks Yup and at at this point in history there are currently eleven trappist breweries in the world. Six of them being in Belgium. Now you need to understand that beer in in the Trappist style that is derived from a commercial brewery is called an Abbey Ale. These breweries have no current monastic connection but they brew and Market The monastic style. So some were once brewed by monks. But they are now purely a commercial enterprise a good example sample of Abbey Ales that are beers are like the beers that we get from saint. Bernardus there's a monk on the label if you'll notice but it's not got a trappist monk any longer The whole time ahead like this scene from career I playing my head going. These styles are just not not working for me. There's too much robe and not enough buttons going on here. So yeah that's so weird but so telling that that's where your mind went. I just. It's not my style to just make fun of other people in the way that they look at things since he's the main man address and that's where he goes almonds are going yes we are. I don't like buttons or the Trappist monks the one with the tonsure. That's what I always wonder Star Wars tonsure. You know where you like where I'm naturally balding on the back. They do. Actually they are the ones like. There's there's Scout Yarmulkes the and the traffic actually are derived from the CISTERCIAN. 's In the CISTERCIAN Zara French The order that goes back to the thirteen inch. Don't make good beer talk. Got Say so. Do the traps have to own the brewery or do all the brewing. Wha what are the guidelines I think the guidelines are fairly thin these days meaning that the brewery actually has to be on the premises of Trappist monastery and every now and then a brother to walk through there. I think the check has to clear. Yeah against where it's drawn money. Talk although I think it will like West Mall there are there's a lot more. Local involvement are probably more hands on writers. Well eventually actually tastes. As several Abbey Beers from Saint Bernard's check out that episode called Belgian not Trappist hear more about those beers. Go by Tim. Why don't you tell us a a little bit about what we're going to be tasting today? So in our head to head competition today was called by their lack of a sound clips. Here you know you'd think you'd have. I'm still reeling from Shinola. Linda all right Give the sound clips. Where they're worth it? I didn't even get one on my insurance. I said where they're worth back here. Tim Setting what's happening in my mind is currently so tonight. Today we'll be tasting the CHAMOIS premier. Just the Red Xiaomei. The chamois seeing sauce which is the white to the Belgian triple triple and the Somme Grand Reserve which is the blue which is the Belgian dark strong or Belgian quad. And then from Latrobe we have.

"Geico love clunk. Wow okay sure there'll be some editing after this so for those of you just joining high we we are discussing some beers from Saint Bernardus which is in two which is a village in West Flanders Belgium. Do they have the dogs there as well. That's been bugging me like I'm sure they did dogs with the little do exactly I'm serious. There's a slight. The different guy the same guy different region wonders allow around lower body goes music around big down here going on going on down here. ooh. No more you know well right right before the break we were going to start talking about the Saint Bernard is triple so let's and we got into the color but now now let's discuss yeah well. I have to tell you that as a as a as a home ruler the triple was one one of the first Belgian beers that brewed successfully a lot a lot yeah after I got it down. I just kept repeating it. I said if it got it right the first time we'll see if I can keep dialing it in and for me. This one has this particular. Saint Bernard triple has always been the benchmark or has been one of of the couple of benchmark triples that I aim for when I'm why Reverend Mark has the bottle sitting right hands the claim claimed much have you taken them with your bells and triple the fifty years well. I've been competing for twenty years. I'd say he's now when I'm I'm always always got a triple in there and you know now. They're just a few things you do of course use the very finest Belgian pills remote that you can come up with and then I typically Semaj at a low temperature which allows there'd be more fermentable sugar because I tend to like my triples on on the dry side and on the mineral side and not dishonest. We're getting waiting. Hall feels here is good yeah and one thing one thing also that did I did note here is is I swirled. Swirled is glass around and look at the light. Foamy head is that it is All these beers are well carbonated but this one is very well carbonated and that's one thing I really like about triples is that typically when I'm bottling in throwing my priming sugar extra sugar in just to make it even more effervescent. I I mean almost champagne like not quite but right up there to be champagne like and so I get that out of this one too I think also that this is a really great beer air to start drinking as its you pull it. I- refrigerator and just open it and drink it cold custer certain things that you get like the mineral is kind of the the subtle spice spice that you get there at the very beginning but then once it starts opening up then some of esters the fruit start coming up for sure so what what I do when I brew them is I start out at a lower ambient temperature and then once I'm about fifty sixty percent through the fermentation actually raise the ambient temperature aloom commit to get a little bit of fruit there at the end by like to start out cold so that it is mostly just a dry beer and then it finishes what the Hi attenuation so. I think this beer is exactly what I aim for sure. This one right here is just you can't you can't improve on this one. Yeah Yeah so yeah and you can taste all those things in this beer. The pills nerd really stands outs. It's just every every the element is is definitely the star this show yeah now in the scheme of things this well exactly. I mean what we have laid out. Is You know you look at this beer on the shelf and you're like hey always they're always there but this is this is a lesson lesson in what it is to be a really good brewer and to know how your yeast works until like. I mean it's almost like being a conductor of symphony. I know this sounds really cheesy but it's the blending of all of these different elements together in like perfect timing to be able to produce something thing like this. I like to use the tight rope analogy tight exact place things but you talk about breweries that make IPA's PA's and all other wonderful IPA's yeah that's great and all and throwing in like a ton of hops at various well exactly exactly this is so this is so different and there's so much love and care that goes into this that you taste and then being able to dry out so many different flavors from when it's cold to win it warms up and it completely changing. It's like sitting in front of a really good painting in them. Watching shing it sort of open up to you and I think also there is a certain kind of simplicity on the far side of complexity in espy yeah that that it. It's really very simple beer. If you look at like you're you're you're you're grain. Bill is just like its pills normal you might you might put a little bit of aromatic in there sometimes these days. I might put a little but not always I also you know tend tend to put a little bit of wheat just to promote especially when you're like percents not at that episode recording in Denver. Thank you very much but really it's very simple simple beer and yet. There's just something exquisitely complex about it if it's super drinkable but if you want to reflect on this beer yeah there's a lot to reflect. Yep Yep Yep so so balanced in so many ways that one thing I like about this beer is when I poured it compared to the others deb gorgeous head that you were talking talking about but that opens up a lot of those notes and that's where I got the hot those hot moats. Originally you know a lot of these are getting malt right away you know Caramel toffee but on this one is laurel has herbal notes that were just popping up literally freshly poured gorgeous. That's why you yeah you really need to enjoy joy this beer over the kind of the temperature spectrum yeah from freshly poured cold other refrigerator and just as we have right here and I and I think we've really seen how well Oh you know. Spears held up even over half hour you know sitting in the glass for sure have this really Sin Resting activities happening out in front of me a and with somebody kind of being introduced to beer for the first time where they really don't like a lot of hops you know and hoppy beers and so they're chasing all of these saisons and they think that you know say Sandra like the gracing since sliced bread they are they are. I knew you were going to say that so but but there's so much variation so much variation it's blurry playing field but the other thing that's playing out is that I'm really a actually had one of Mark's triples in in a flight and this person happened to pick it up and they were enjoying it and they were like wow what's this and I go. I don't what do you think of it and they're like. I think this is this is really good. It's not a song I go. You are correct. It is not right and the you know they're like quote has like a bigger mouth field to it and I'm like wow that's the first time this person's used mouth yeah no correctly but I think if anything I think IT I didn't really think about you know as watching somebody's GonNa Journey with beer and kind of learning watching their Powell kind of football. This is kind of that half graining step you know two beers that are not necessarily hop free but I would not consider this hoppy. This is definitely a very malt forward so it. Has You know a lot more floral. Kinda bready you know kind of quality to and I yeah I think a lot of people would would really embrace this and how many times we've said if we moved back to a lot of the base beer styles and and stopped with a lot of the edge city. How many times would that really show the quality of the beer making that really is at play sure as I have had so homini triples that are host screwed up Sharman so debt is to me that simple recipe is almost like ninety percent technique at the end of the day it is it's technique and it's also as you learned to brew in his. I consult with with people that are wanting to get into that is a hobby so you know you've got to learn grew true to style and this is one of those styles that you really need to practice. Yes yes yes I. I totally concur because for a simple as you said the recipe is it's so subtle differences in those. There's nuance is I should say that really make the difference between a man and you know the skill of the monks and so taking something is the such simple ingredients and making a complex without using breakfast cereals in their mash is astounding is very very simple and it's amazing and it's it's a holy word right. Check us this in the breakfast. Eh No fruity pebbles necessarily one thing we've been harping on all along in this in this the show about about all all these Belgian beers is that the yeast is so much part of the the character more than than a lot of other kinds of markets and I think another thing that to learn manager learning to brew Belgian Beers is to split a batch in used to different kinds of Belgian strains just to say exactly what these yeasts do and and it's it's amazing what you get and this is really one of the best beer styles to do that with you. Know Cezanne's as well but brew like you guys though I'd like like to have there'll be another episode where I can I can. I'm biting my tongue over here. I think it's great to brew to style. Do I think it sits educational channel and I think you learn a lot but I think that's what river marks hitting at if your brand brewer Buddha style otherwise. You'll never know if you're any good or not. Don't go for that raspberry. Ip Ipo milk say that's not what I'm seeing either but I I don't. I'm not sure the world does well. My my logic is as when I started out I wanted to British style because there were some benchmark beers that I really enjoy it was brutal style anything that doesn't have fruity pebbles in it because I mean well. It's not what I'm saying now. Now let's see these mark represents generation of of home brewers that were competitive active and competences and there were there were marks that needed to be pardon. The Pun needed to be hit a long shot you uh-huh let benchmarks that needed to be hit and I don't know man. I think I've represented generation of brewers that that just say we you know I'll call this beer Cezanne on Mike Hop in it with well CITRA. You can call a Cezanne. I mean say could be almost anything. It is bad example a trip. A triple has pretty much has to be a triple. I love all the innovations going and I do that myself but I think that my point about Bruin true to style is that is kind of like learning to play the piano. Just learn learn your scales corey before you start before you start going into into atonal music learner learn your scales and so or as they say in writing you gotTa know the rules to break the rules inch argument. I love not today okay so for the Saint Bernard is triple that we are loving and yeah we're going to rate this. A four are although I think for some people. This might be a five five yeah now. The last year that we're going to discuss today is the same Bernardus swit- it is a traditional unfiltered Belgian white beer it was developed in collaboration with tear Sella's the legendary and I mean legendary master brewer who founded the hoegaarden brewery brewing their signature beer that was the driver of the resurgence of y Te Beer or whip beers in the nineteen fifties now of notes what is really cool about this can exactly eh so for a little over a year now we're able to get this beer pass that around sixty the in the US markets only I might add. Let's was curious is such a great style and it's a good you know. When do you think some are beer. This is one of my summer beers and now you can buy it in a can and anywhere to the beach taking on a boat..

"Julius were Westie twelve. I think one of the thing that makes them special as they are great beers but they are hard to find and west. He twelve extremely hard to find if you can drink it but if you can't drink Saint Bernard has twelve yeah in definitely when I think of the West small that is a bit more lighter and Cola forward then what this is this is a twenty layer painting Super Koslow thing. I really love about this all the way round. Ns it warms up it. Just it completely changes the landscape which is so great compared to what it was when it was cold but this is an all year round beer too. I mean we're in the dead of summer and it's still so I'll all have it. I'll have more today. Are we'll have more. We're going to raid the Saint Bernardus abt twelve twelve a five moving on we're going to go oh to the St Bernardus prior eight. It's a traditional abbey beer brewed in the classic. Do Bell Style. The original recipe dates back to the times is when they still brewed under license for the monks of Westie 'cause. I can't say that word either. Give it a shot Westie. I know my limitations veteran there. You go west lettering what she said what she said definitely a slight sweet kind of Roasti impeccable talk a little bit about maybe some crossover you know in terms of style with this the kindle and our chatting about but I mean even and at times kind of approaching some aspects of ill you know yeah yeah but incredible balance again really great beer to me. This is the only one where I knew it was a little high. I get just a little touch alcohol. It's never hot but you know it's there yeah right there's like an stringency as it's warmed up here now and I think there's an acceptable level and it is with with with many of these kind of beers of of the knowles in and just a little bit a little bit of spice. Yeah Yeah a little bit of that peppering it picks up that pepper and clove and coriander all that stuff just to touch the eastern a little bit more on this one as opposed to the ABT twelve but still it's a it's a great still getting that slayer bells now nothing coming through on this similar flavors to the twelve. I would say this one doesn't have the intensity or complexity city and twelve but it's it's also very close in styles in. I think this one blurs the line between a due bill on a quiet yeah well and that was what can I were chatting about. I actually wrote down that I thought this was close to a light porter because it really had kind of a bit of a roast equality about it and I actually it didn't look at the style. Even though I knew the eight was a duboe why when I sat down this was the first one in the flight that I had and I actually actually wrote down. This is light porter with big question mark kind of decided. It's got a little bit of those chocolate. He notes that you get out of importer. You always got Tutsi roll yeah. It's Tyrrell's a classic taste profile. I think when you have a great pork Yemi quite well the Saint Bernard is prior eight sweet rated a four moving on. We're going to go to the Saint Bernardus patter six six. It is brewed according to the classic Jabil style with a recipe that dates back to nineteen forty-six. The name of this beer has become a reference for a style and what is commonly referred to as Heen Turkey Turkey. Forgive me. Could you sorry sorry sorry not almost there. He say that you fake it. Well you have to channel your inner southern. Fill your inner bell so we had a story that happened around this beer is that was one of the few beers that Ed our ability of sourcing this and getting something fresh was highly frustrated and actually this beer borne on date that was past two years so all we can say `bout starting off this or a best buy the best by date not a not a born on which means it was probably rude about a year on way before just probably about three and a half years old some of my tasting those around this. We're very cola like I actually wrote down this split between a blend of Pepsi and spray with a bit of cardboard actually not a terrible herbal description. I kids. That's not bring it down to you. Know tasting notes dusted the dust off the bottle. I thought this was once a really good beer goodyear. Yeah maybe so the thing I like about this beer is it shows kind of the breadth of style. She can have an in Belgian beers. I feel like the sun styles are way more rigid like a German pills. You know exactly what to expect. Yeah Excel John duboe. This is on the lighter end. They can be a little bit lighter in color a little bit darker than little more richer earlier. I think this one is like it's brother. The eight is is much lighter every characteristic flavor intensity. It's a beautiful beer if you could find it fresh. I really really enjoy it. Yeah I agree. It's a little unbalanced right now. It's nasty. I just had another case. It's yeah it's a the after it's been sitting out here for about a half hour. This it is just it traveled a long way to get here. How men IT improve with age. It didn't improve period it. It really took a turn for the south for sure as it warmed up it did at my last SIP. There was probably the best of the bunch okay all right well. I'm sure in its prime. It's you know it's gorgeous but even for being as old as bad as it. Is it still tolerable though I wouldn't use the word bad which you could say oxidized and it's well the thing I like about this conversation is that that I mean how many of us seller beer we always go. Belgian can seller forever right yeah. Yeah we many times. We said that you know to other people as well as you know that in practice. I think this is a prime example where yeah not so much. I don't know if this was light blighted or maybe a big was the difference between settling and shuffling across the country across the world. I mean so things being bottles bottles being in movement and being in different micro environments and De temperature changes the recipe here but I think for for all of these beers it from from this brewery. They are more they tend to be. They've tended more hop forward. Maybe than a lot of Belgian like classic. Ask Belgian styles like a couple of these beers I the the hot presence was was in there. It was noticeable. Oh yeah it wasn't just east and off thought you know there was I get that receipt freeness. There was like some late edition hop. CNN like fruity aroma type stuff but given a preview view that this one yeah. Maybe this one's fallen off in that respect too. You know it's a little like to me. It's just more like it's a stringent more than anything else. anyways I think wanted to throw out is would you go back and solar these fears. I mean based on what this experience was with this. You know yeah look at them. They're like twelve. I think the twelve for sure the time twelve holds up to eight could under the right conditions. I think think like most beers their best fresh and that six is probably going to hold up a year or two but you're you're gonNA WANNA drink it. Senator triple triple could stand a a little shelf time you know is a bottle with a message in the messages. Be where you're in the six. Only being a six point seven say you really need eight percent or above. A seller really isn't the one that you're going to sell. I I mean not that. You necessarily would anyways because this is a good lesson learned that it's not just a matter of the style of beer or the east component. You know that you're really working with or if it's infected you know if you're looking for some bottle conditioning of some kind you really have to pay attention to the style. Al Appear that working with as well and I think. Ab is a good a good. Y- acres percents minimum. I think is I think as mark pointed out the only beers like like the the quad would be like how often you know they wouldn't be served that often so it's going to be and all of these lower beers were drank way more frequently yeah so they probably wouldn't even get a chance to seller absent quads that have probably had in excess of ten years that I've just amazing. You know what I've got. This twelve actually magnum bottle that have been saving for a special occasion in my cellar fridge sitting at fifty five degrees. It's an least five years old. I'm guessing it's still just five so disappointed that you know with reverend mark butchering so much of the preamble background. That was a special occasion. I should have brought it well today. We are reading the the Patrick six three but I'm sure in different circumstances. It would be a lot higher yeah all right but we can only imagine true only work work with what we got so now moving on. Let's go to something slightly more. Ab in the triple so it's a traditional abbey beer that follows the classic triple style in the region a triple is often referred to as a a UH Bernard dead. She forgive me Belgian. Forgive me no now. We're not a fine tribute that pays Omar's to Bernadette who was the youngest daughter of Evariste de Karnik the man whom the monks of Abbey Sainte Marie du Moaned Damone dacoit sold their Belgium property in nineteen thirty four okay. That's that's a lot of verbiage. See A lot of surveys. But what a a completely differently beautiful color on this one yeah. That's one of the biggest differences a lot of people think Belgian beer is dark and triple. We'll see how gorgeous deep gold color they're just. I mean the number of times I looked and tasted and and between getting a Belgian a golden Belgian and a triple really screwed up that it's pretty easy to that tip off is a pilgrim. All you know I think is usually the big the big tip off difference between the two and the usually Belgian goals a bit sweeter and there's a lot more banana smell it on more now on naturals are pretty hop forward of all the Belgian beers they can be quite hoppy while I look forward to what the triple master has to say about this beer as well as making more beers. Yes we'll be back in just a minute. Welcome back everyone today as a special special holy episode own minimum a.

It's so good to be back. Hey the reason that's so funny is because I get that from everyone's laughing. This is what this is what people think no. What is that smell smell. It smells like career disappointment and aged depend. It's not that bad. I'm lucky I'll get there though and over here in this other corner here. Who is this forevermark welcome. The Heck Baggy Potter is here today. I'll be sir or Lancelot. The mostly chased cheese. I like everybody I staff. Goal like never caught over gosh well. Today is a brewery takeover episode. Hey we're going to be reviewing. Listen to that crowd listened craft. They're looking at the box. They know what's going on. We're going to be reviewing several Saint Bernardus here which is in order to a village in West Flanders Belgium. Saint Bernard is a staple in the Belgian section of any good beer store but it's also one of those we tend to overlook and sometimes you know when we're searching for the latest crazy milkshake raspberry. I pre- milk shake. You know favorite band. Once again are searching for trend. We sometimes forget the traditional but before we get into that this Sud segment is brought to you by the people against against lactose excess the craft American craft beer industry is at a critical moment in its history so let me speak directly to all the brewers. Hey you guys you found milk sugar. Yay For that it makes beers thicker and sweeter we get it we get it already lactose and a stout. That's cool milkshake. PA It's like okay I can deal with that. Maybe but where does it stop folks. lactose lager milk. Sugar Mika Lada C. C. were slippery slope so please brewers stop this before. It's it's too late. Stop that Pale it exactly but well we are. Some notes about Saint. Bernard is now much sure who should read them though I mean we got reverend mark. You've been to monasteries seriously before you speak there right. He's orally talented hanging out in monasteries. Yes you do but then well. Mike you spend most of your day walking around in a robe and that even though we're okay so I guess you we know what we're going to go with. Reverend Arc Okay Place Those bets now folks but just take note of the fact that I am from the south of which means I'm phonetically phonetically challenge so this row with this okay a short history on Saint Bernardus in the early nineteen hundreds the Trappist fled eh the Monte Kahn which is named after a local tribe in France and they escaped to what to Belgium where they would not have to be taxed there. They took up residence at the punish off farm. Also known is cory while just a stone's throw from the current brewery. They renamed name their new home. The refused did Notre Dame Day Saint Bernard and began making cheese fast. That's Ford little to the Nineteen Thirties. France became more lenient about taxes and so the monks decided to move back to their original location they vacated aided their dairy and it was taken over by Everest conic not long after the Second World War Everest de Connick was invited sided by the Trappist monks at West lettering West here we go was lettering to brew in market their Trappist Beers under license. I was going to say liquorice. Originally originally covering their thirty year period brew Master Matthew Zabriskie brought his considerable know how to this new site bringing both recipes and the very famous Saint Sixties Yeast as a new in as the new brewery was established right next to the cheese workshop so I wonder if they had if they were craw Sheila's -ation you know of yeast and between what they were using cheese shop and the brewery career at all that make sense if you're good at one you tend to be good at the clear yeah working with you know something something else skills and takes a lot of beer to make cheese so as you're making nj feeds yes and so in nineteen sixty two a new thirty year deal was signed to keep the beer flowing until nineteen ninety two and nineteen ninety two the agreement expired for good and as the Trappist Breweries had decided to award the authentic Trappist Beer label exclusively two beers that had been brewed inside an abbey so from that time on the brewery spears were marketed under the saint bernards brand name big doings yeah so that was one thing that when we were sitting down. I actually thought this was still part of that. Branding you know through the fourteen fourteen monasteries that have this label Trappist Beers and this is not in that fourteen which I I couldn't remember you know there have been very few changes over the last five years but honestly this. I just couldn't remember on the fly they were in and out out so they're out part of and there's there's some label artwork that I saw where you go back to. The period where it that rule had not been declared in the the monk had a a skullcap and then ateret the skullcap is removed never noticed yeah history feeds Mansi Pants knowledge base on Reverend Martin. I'd read some history on this just like your opinion man. Eh Say I'd read the history on this brewery and a lot of these are those original. Wes Fletcher N- recipes that they are still brewing right now doing their own thing and using west malls yeast a these are kind of the authentic ones yeah and we'll actually talk about that as we get closer to talking about some of these beers because we've had both was leader in in you know these beers in the past and yeah we'll we'll talk about how close those really are you know at the end of the day and the fact that we've now pronounced that brewers named three different ways wrecked that's right. It is West leader right. Oh I actually heard a Belgian say at once and I cannot say it like that just totally different way of pronouncing in the accounts. It's going to be true so many times during this. Oh totally totally right now go to Mike. Would you cinch up your role and and tell us about these beers that we're going to be tasting today. I think keyword a cinch. Yes hitched up buddy today. We're going might be having the following five beers from Saint Bernardus. Saint Bernard has abt twelve at ten percent qualified the Saint Bernards prior eight an eight percent do bell the Saint Bernardus Potter six six point seven percent do bell the Saint Bernard is triple eight percent trouble and the Saint Bernardus wit five point five percent white beer tap yum there you go. It's just such a classic part of of Monty Python a here. It's sort of sums up the crew here. We're whacking the bottles into our head. I definitely I I definitely need a lot more beer to get through the rest of the sepsis. I liked him self-flagellation with the triple all right I'm are we allowed to talk about that on the radio. Apparently we just did a yard big across through gals ex uh-huh Larry's editor commercial break the table lane. We need right. Here should be back after this brief interlude. Welcome back everyone. Eh monks are with US blessing us on this most holy of beer episodes correct man well mark. Are you ready for this It's it's Gabriel L. K. Martin but we'll sit ups me back. Yes we live for the honor of reading us. Is this sets would be to we'll be discussing rating these beers when the suds ratings plus our signature belching those ratings now rating of one Matt's S- give me anything but above good Erico. There's a rating of two was that a Bell uh-huh a rating of three. What a really rating of four you're nobody should not really make that sound holy league and a rating of five listen to that hang time him give me another mm-hmm bad? They're not letting me that I would try to do. TM humming with fart sounds. They're not letting any of us into heaven guys yet. We did something there. The I think my lips are numb now. Actually thank you a pretty good kanter. It's nice to have something to fall back. Put that at the top of your resume yes okay so let's get started. Saint Bernardus. ABT twelve it is widely regarded as one of the best beers in the world. If not the universe is there for no surprise it is the brewery's flagship beer ranked at the very top of the same Bernardus beer hierarchy hierarchy. It is brewed in the classic quadruple style and adheres to the original nineteen forty six recipe. I love this bear. I think that recipe goes back further than forty six. I thought right yeah. I thought it was one of the original. This is one one of the oldest. It's one of the oldest I think that's one of the marketing does is that it's the oldest beer recipe in production. This is just pure magic raisins spices. I can actually hear Christmas carols some drinking this. I mean it's just this is so wonderful. I love it at a bottle eleven glass. I love it on draft. A love often go yeah if you can find it on draft get it. It is spectacular dealer. Yeah I thought it at a very rich composite Malt toffee raisin rich fruit in the NOZ was like a Vice Bach. I mean had that banana. That was just it just it was just it took me into all different kinds of beer directions so like like the best Belgians right. The yeast plays a role in every one of these beers that were drinking today and that's. It's just this thing drinks like an eight percent beer. I mean it's it's they're all super drinkable and that's a classic sign of all these. Trappist yet rapids style albers is the the monks actually have a word they called digestible which to Muss basically means easy drinking even though this is big and complex and rich and high alcohol. It's a very very easy drinking beer sure it is I mean you don't you don't taste the alcohol on this and all it's it's just creamy enough the it's so layered it's so light on the tongue it's very impressive motivation and all of these two superhero point silky smooth. One of the one of the stories stories of the Trappist Brune history is that the quadruple is of course the top gear the top strength but that the single double triple quadruple also denotes win. The beers can be consumed in during the workweek. The singles are are allowed to be drunk at the end of the of the day eight the do bolster for Sunday's only the triples or for high holy days and quadruple is if the bishop is if the Bishop is around the big guys so oh yeah. We're having them all in one sitting what does that make. The pope is good a debate pope next to godliness so I love this brief conversation about Wesley Twelve. You know because this a beer definitely is a I think a dead ringer of four Wesley Twelve and in fact actually remember somebody doing a blind tasting of Belgian quads and the West leader end this were in there and everybody picked us as the West leader that blind dates. It is so similar when we're talking about out those rare beers you know like treehouse..

"This is a big testing time for it because they've really go to make up some ground on mclaren to prove that this series legit and mistakes like this is not really the way to do it. Yeah the currently attained that he's rotates egrets history of drivers or is head of them in the constructors standings. It's fusco yeah. It's the way it's meant to be so if we look at the points after this this racist hamilton still leads the championship sixty five point eight it bought assets mexico step in cape forgetting he was industry is because he crashed out a couple of hundred meters pot was he's fall really. He was being trim vicious down one that was like twenty seventeen wasn't it came from but i had a crack in didn't work out <hes> he's still go ahead of veteran. The clerk and mercedes controls the constructors championship. I hit a ferrari. One hundred forty five points red bull racing's little bit further back there two hundred seventeen points behind so what's the difference between name in <hes> ferrari. It's fifty something something point six something like that. Mclaren tara renault racing points moved up to seventy for us of course and williams on any one point. Oh you wanna listen to books of neutrals well. How about you fill out this form yellow. One ha off rubbing off the belgian grand prix and some of the other things that happened in the lead up to the belgian grand prix michael manado and rob james. We previewed some of these actually last week because the rumors were very strong but we had a whole bunch of contract announcements this weekend i was very boathouse was retained at all year who'd have guessed he's one year. Contract disobeys yeah well. I feel like we say it's getting. It's like rocket ferrari every every year. It's gonna be the last one we bought us doing okay at a sold race weekends. Just not quite as quick as hamilton d._c. Is actually good for him that that is out of the white because there's nothing nothing worse for rising drama than having contract negotiations plying the back of their mind so he can he can he get absolutely have may between now and the end of the season. It was like muslim starting in here and anyway in two thousand twenty. What's interesting though i've just realized this. Is that all these days ago one year ago one year extension so be doing exactly this conversation this time next year <hes> is that shortly afterwards esteban okon was signed reynaud yeah as we sort of producing hokum big eight. We read the room set it for two years yeah so if mercedes got for one season hamilton's contract expires it in next to you by the way but the next junior driver oaklawn he's lockdown at renaissance which by the way part of this deal they said was that he was not mercedes not mercedes property for these two years. They still manages career but he's not a mercedes. The site driving which i know is a kind of but they're saying we don't have any cy anemia putting it on toyota finance. Yes exactly exactly yeah well there. You go view. I guess <hes> you've also got george russell of course but a second year in a williams not exactly conclusive staff. They've got to that means. Mercedes got two drivers out of contracts no contract next year and theoretically no one to fill the breach of either of them would not because it would not be enough and hamilton with decide to leave very good news coverage on the conveyor a good news hashtag w. w. We always good news for all their two seats mercedes next year. Now let's eric. It's not completely have the questions. The deal is what's we'd here yeah. Let's not forget to is the hamilton factor where he pulls up stumps exactly to ferrari wa aw classically to throw shade at rosberg and just say well i can do. I can do better than you so well. I'd okay but i that's gonna make things very interesting. What are you going to be a very busy lewis hamilton. We're tight on the podium on the here mark my words okay we'll do that. That is the way i get wins and abu dhabi.

"Headed into the pets and then he obviously faster slapping a closed on the last ten laps humboldt us by half a second the lab but it wasn't quite enough. He fell a few second shore of be able to threaten threaten us. I bought us ended up in and i had a vessels <hes> federal swath so yeah not much to say about policies. We cannot not bad. It's all very perfectly. Autry wasn't it both us was was close to hamilton's performance then federal minister clouds we should talk about battle and he struggled unusually with with tire management in this rice and in fact the club had been a bit of a little bit of a weakness of massive weakness but a little bit relatives of athol who's normally very good at it and actually was leclerc uet east and that he was struggling a little bit which created this whole scenario with the stop and then what will happen in the rice is true while it's it's it's tricky because the one thing that's clear is obviously the we we saw in the salt. Let me see sterling the festival as well. We are on the cellphone. Friday that has long run drops off dramatically. I think the average i've not done laps us about may the fraud about the sixth discolor or something which trading it wasn't as dramatic dropoff obviously when you're running quite well trimmed out as well so sliding around a lot in the middlesex now exactly how vitals able to usually in this situation if you minimize the sliding and you can <hes> control the sleep of the rails as you wrote. Linda will stunned you in good stead. I suspect this is polly already down so declare has has made improvements and change what he's doing and the only thing i can say that would be different competitive out in previous races is doubtful so i imagine it stands in fact <hes> yeah just just one of those days where the reason i ask is because when matai ferrari team principal was asked this half of the race and he didn't announced yet. Maybe i mean you obviously haven't given a conclusive answer there but you've offered slightly more insight as to why the struggle might have taken place a little bit more than metairie didn't really want to go into much detail. It didn't want to refer to the gap between these two drivers big in terms of how they hand fed with the ties but i would say it was big because the cloud that needs to make second pitstop better. Did i mean we did say they. The the question of the drop of happen because when hamilton then starts really catch leclair second stint as he's being told by the by the mercedes pit will it was was about the same time that they saw the draw with that'll drop off actually more dramatic and then come back so i did wonder if there's a little bit of grain and going on 'cause sometimes you see that the biggest drop off and then it comes back a bit although the grading overruled does accelerate the the take over the life of of the tire <hes> but yeah that'll was in various area so the clock on that he was he was not quickly interestingly. We should say if we're looking at their idea. Laps and qualifying battles ideal best lap was only two cents off the class by spur of saito's craig quite a bit of variety of <hes> variable in napa very clearly leclair was the period's probably it'd be something today with the work he's put in so and they unusual circuit downforce there has to be the answer we in there somewhere but imagine massive amounts also i will <hes> will have to the bottom of his team. Will we're about fifty miles outside of brussels. At the moment in our little convoy and weaver <hes> ended up particularly smelly part of the belgian motorway or ed strolls in speaking very honestly there was <hes> speaking of bull so to speak but i don't think it's that i think it was absolutely spot on and he's actually just a pretty stinky part of froze. Its is definitely an ambient condition situation but as ever still coddling all driver is doing an outstanding job but you ought to make injection stage. We've clearly passed some sort of serious network hemingway yes. Let's confirmation. I should i i. I've stopped us from having an extra guests by turning the staff down so you may have heard in the background. Osceola has something else to say. It's a difficult process. I lean across and pointing the microphone. Find him because he's a steely does not always off the road. I've just realize the open. Sewerage network is a great name for a band.

"But what would you don't have is your mistake propagating through closely packed field of you know twenty cars yeah. They've been back at pocono since two thousand thirteen. This is also the place where <hes> robert wickens had his <hes> crash that <hes> he is still recovering from <hes> and it's where justin wilson was killed in twin day. It was awesome it. Is i mean they even there's a there's an article from the a._p. News here with a quote from the c._e._o. C._e._o. just before this happened the c._e._o. Of the pocono raceway he says is this track inherently dangerous for race cars yet. I actually think so. I actually think it's more dangerous than some of the tracks not all the tracks but some of the tracks they go to so like even that guys like yes places rough <hes> i think he's kind of up against it though because the thing is pocono is poconos dangerous but poconos dangerous dangerous 'cause oval racing is dangerous pocono does make some of these risks worse but like justin wilson wasn't killed because pocono like i think you'd have to stretch to say pocono is the reason justin wilson was killed. He was killed because they run open cockpits abets and rice that is a trend that is starting to disappear in in open wheel racing and including in yeah. They're gonna hit the windscreen so yeah so like his his passing hastened and the end of the open cockpits and now i'm not sure anyone ever considered whether would halo system have have <hes> saved saved him that case. I don't know <hes> it was it was a really freakish accident but if so there are risks of over racing the pocono does make like somewhat worse and as a facility it seems out of date <hes> and it does invite bad decisions <music> by drivers that make it riskier in some ways but i do kind of have some some of the for for indy cindy and their management because ultimately if you're going to say poconos too dangerous to race at. I don't think you're very far from saying saying what oval when you really boil. It down isn't too dangerous to race and as someone who loves indycar. I'm oh <music>. I'm ready to have that discussion right like i like. I would miss the indy five hundred like who's your myself but be like definition definitional difficult <hes> for me if like the indy five hundred one away like what am i any more but at the same time like ovals older scary how in in open wheel racing and so i am <hes> i am curious where this discussion goes or whether they can find ways to for for the re reform and design <hes> crash barriers to make it safer it'd be it'd be such a shame in so many ways because obviously it gets access as to you know parts of the racing community where ovals were built for years and they don't have circuits necessarily near them and you know they probably are are like many circuits not exactly you know flying with money. They're just probably scraping by and it would suck for those people who knows the tricky rickie triangle. We'd like to keep it around yeah but <hes> yeah you feel like time is coaching open. Some of this stuff yeah from the tricky triangle to the battle of the bulge bulge must take it to the r. n. Forest shall we fellas. Let's do it <hes> dig. Foxholes kids were were in for the weekends the rest of washington and brothers now. It's yeah we we don't have the who the german driver smashing battle. Let's not go go there.
