You mentioned an engineering. The engineering suburbs very well protected areas and got out so Whether or not he survived in reality sending. I put in the fact that they were seen by people in the water because on icy reporting although i wouldn't put anything i think has no married and has no reality. I when people saying that. He was seeing Saluting and went went down with the ship like that then is setting amount of stuff. You can come in at the state perspective. But they might send him in. It could happen. But i decided to take it that you might want to survive Something that's always been interesting to me about this. Obviously the the royal navy essentially had to withdraw out of concern over the german bombers and over concerns about A very similar thing happens when scharnhorst is destroyed off norway but the circumstances they are much different. Right it's december. it's farther north I guess that. If i didn't already know the answer i would have. I would have thought that german submarines are. Somebody could have picked up more survivors from bismarck than we're actually we're actually picked up shots must be in. The area were the worst submarine scenario and bone serene book and whether a weather ship or weather reporting ship was ordered to the area and picked up to ninety. Find any fan diane.

As i mentioned earlier right to the top of the tower he He didn't have anything to accept. Watch that because they were mainly waiting for cross Rodney didn't not actually have anti-aircraft guns manned that would have been condemned to death and so He was setup there in this position and he saw what he was Semaphore signals from abysmal. After looking at the tent campbell's clue if you like i'll just finding the tenant campbell's suggestion semaphore signals from mast on the front end of the ship then got in touch with kevin ause followed. Father told me baas being a writing in the level below the defensive position in the main control position of rodney and he had the people. A lot of people speak spoke tune. Fissionable cut high paddle. Ticks could really see what was going on and he was on these high powered optical instruments and he saw more than that he saw a guy using a semaphore on. What are the four terrace. It was blown away A black flag on a how yet and probably blown away and Also he saw lot signals as well and then beyond that. I did find a a site or an actress dosage. And i put this in. Another book did cutting the small a franklin who he so signals as well so for me and i'm not saying it's gonna stand up in coal or scientific proof but for me. It's a very intriguing proposition. And to me make sense because With only chronic control going into four end of the ship the defy the secondary armament and main guns act. Still farming is going to be paper. The front of the thinking much offices date while they decided lyneham still alive. But you know things have just gone to pulse and we've got. It remains slow today. So it gonna surrender. we talk. We must we were stopped this and but the problem was that color still flying and unlike there was one other instance in history where vouchers did surrender in a battle but it would not same circumstances. It wasn't close range. And i don't think the one of the scientists flooring either clear signs that one of the signs to surrender so these were clues and signs. They weren't really firm enough. I would say Can georgia fifth and ronnie to say rod. We're going to stop is inconceivable. Minimal not gonna read kindly. You could just stall when paul an enemy ship is still far unless you said you know the i want to. I mean you couldn't put a. I mean how would you put across. How how'd you put a voting party across an and why would you tell you the hulk the main thing you would want to get rid of it and if you think is two hundred luftwaffe almost coming and i did think that and fuel is running out there you boat surroundings in. You're not going to stop but you will pick up survivors if you can. So that's what happened but yeah it's I the upset.

"Hate and maybe another people's heads that this the royal navy was going to get them get away with it for a short while but in the end the rule ninety will get you and exactly what happens so he didn't help by demoralizing the crew. So can you tell us a little bit about the situation with the onboard. Bismarck in the battle is is very unusual. This is something that you alluded to earlier Because no matter how badly the fighting power of the ship was was effectively destroyed. The ship itself was incredibly reluctant to sink And so i mean the things we know about it. we have the cops morale. We know that blocks people are hiding out in piece parts of the ship. What do we know about now about the scuttling charges being fired. What do we know about the effort to surrender. The that probably happened with both part of the ship in one going on bismarck as being just just hammered like no ships him before you Best compared to like am aside battalion of troops that own battlefield spread across the field or in town. And so if you don't have the ability to lock radio or people running with all does all. Just communicate was happening. Let the novels cutting all. You gotta come on taken out in another damage that you get an answer when you phone. Eighty two and you can't send reinforcement city where they're also bogged down in their pin down and that's what you had with baseball. And she was basically They were all locked up Up down and the left to within parts of the ship. Extraordinarily thing is that Bismarck's at engineering caused on an engineering spices. Running all the machinery had no idea what was going on the ship. They i mean they use. The stain was gone. I mean other than hearing the bumps in the bangs and everything else and a k an occasion like bit smoked down to ventilation. They have no only dan. How much the ship being destroyed beyond the citadel. That protected them in the The the magazine's the kodi shell showrooms and basically the the the low option of the gun turrets The big counters fifty inch. They had no idea doug's people within the well bates that it was so bad and it was only when they were told right. We are abandoning ship and especially engineering spices. We're all united Set scuttling charges. We going emergency this. Hal the owned them and realize how bad it was. And so it was Lots of people disconnected and as you said Coffin interest groups and with no communication and The big control of course is the Sinker was she's comfortable. I mean that's the thing that keeps coming up and people try to make their own points by that tonight right and in the end the answer is even if she works gotta was because the british were thinking. Yeah i mean if you to give credit to. David man's the ballots in different points of view. David means Is talk to about this. And he's he did a very recent survey of the wreck and gave me some information for passbook and.

"Action and so there were three guys three men killed in a thing in sheffield so that was eight and other no not closed on it on any ships and also is amazing but bizarre. Contrary to the film cigna bismuth the sixties didn't shoot a single as swordfish down although they damage them the sole tricia she knows a strange aircraft and it was difficult to shoot down even when you hit. They didn't come initiating down well they they did damage swordfish. They didn't shoot down Either saw so the exception of hoods an amazing killer. Blow is fox record. There was pretty poll. Mean her gunnery was better at denmark's 'cause she also landed on sprint's prince of wales and so yeah. Yeah some of this is ascribed to morale and yeah. That's true that's true. I mean the the key thing is they. They came in demonstrated had an eight minute battle. They have the enemy. The enemy might evers we sat. it's a it's a terrible event being commemorated and this week the truth is edwards made And this lots of debate should go into this book about all that but they will give an advantage in the british five The the principles was ordered along with hood to five just stone at the beginning of the of the demostrate and put another book. The the country of principles of wales was desperately saying you finding ship because they looked very similar. Print soican is and so that gave the germans the chance to concentrate fly. An end was the whole program. Going as i'm holding fairly had no choice but to goes straight at bismarck then he so of guns bearing. So the germans had advantages. They've known for having Gunnery to curb octaves as well and then few days lights promos could fill. The role navy was closing around. The manu demoralized. The biswas crew was some of his Addresses to them. And then i kind of morale collapsed and not for the mentioned in this book. And so if you re you know you just have to read the german accounts you know. It was collapsed. People just lying down and wait for the fight. They mentally goal so any. So rodney king george v and. They've been harassed by destroys overnight so they didn't get much sleep and they were. They felt this..

Which was rodney going. Close and maneuver to basically destroy mismarked. While the king george v stood off out of alana fought and fought as well and then it was too heavy cruises as well does it share and norfolk. And it's very much.

Nece and problem of only being able to present some of yukon's. She writes to high-speed front on towards the enemy. so there was a kind of a tag team An epa pack around bizmart when she was crippled a stadium was crippled and they just basically tore it to pieces and rodney yet. When in did when you say the track charts and i for so an impeccable museum. I saw the two jobs from the torpedo of lewis and i showed the actual tried shot That he filed and had she's exact in and around his while. She torpedoed as well as finding a six engine and sixteen inch guns.

"So it's it's remarkable to me that people still feel strongly about these kinds of events even far after them show. Is you know the trigger trigger battles trigger events where they would just call stu arguing about it and they have their own points of view. So this is. I guess this is one of them. there are one or two controversial adamant so the and i think the best way to to puncture the myths is to combine Solid research in the museums with fresh eyewitness testimony can get you can get from paper. Maybe haven't been talked to before because they to junior whatever and thing. I found in Researching some of the books in your case is that it went inside. Cool so you mentioned the baronet ludovic kennedy classic as well and a few of the people and what happened. I think that was that. That story sinking being told by the early seventies nineteen eighty or whenever it was if you went back to the national museum of the nineteen with which is what i did and you look to narrow colleagues you could find stuff that been recently. Launched by veterans. Who are doing this thing where they finally decided to talk about it. And as an amazing amount stuff documents and papers lodged at people hadn't looked at because it gets in nineteen seventy four thousand nine hundred ninety. It wasn't available. It wasn't in netscaler. You'll the soldiers to go into the museums. If you can make gonna pandemic side of whatever came to them and to. I was so looks for those and i think they do up. Occasionally they know that often but yeah i can alter perspective and it can't few controls as well so let's dig into these final hours and and reading through this. It's the familiar. Beats and one in particular is the damage to the rudder That sort of at this moment. We have rejoicing the british. All of this concerned about whether kgb. We'll be able to stay with the fight. And then just the absolute despondency on the british side. So much of the town is from the point of view sailors. Who are on at all and you also have those wonderful about the polish destroyer which i certainly had never heard before. They're yelling in the open. We are polls as they're fighting. Communicate you can you tell about what what. The two british battleships contribute to that final. That final fight rodney. And and king george and rodney was in the lead To my recollection in your in your description. Yeah the lead in the fight. Yeah i mean the thing about the rodney. She was sixteen years old. Had a crack in tech because of the boom it hits but not blown shattered didn't blow but cracked up on the deck. She had to Need rectification and a refit of her steering a main machinery. She was need badly-needed refenced sending to festival to candidate joe kuala passengers. She had five hundred passengers on board during the battle which is quite extraordinary also participation and some of the models all being tight so barucha with a convoy so that she could go to canada drop people often anglo to To boston gareth in american naval dockyard and so they weren't really expecting to do much of an escort a troop chicago botanic across the atlantic. But when this whole thing unfolded her. Captain frederick. Darryl hamilton today an amazing masterful read of empty signals. Net and got together a group of officers and decided to place rodney.

"From news. A newspaper journalist when gathered lots of stories. And i still haven't imprint. I would then build on that and so walls fight. Am i first about the battleship. Famous battleship built into both crude originally A great shape with the great record was i'm to put the guys. I that that their stories confessed and said oh my job is to before they're not with us is to get them out there so the twenty four hours to do approach. She's even more stripped down to what they say. Although i do with this one of course of the context in the story but the whole idea of the filming of those to get a camera and be getting their amazing stories People other than the ones feed inadequate books and get them for history. So i thought well let you know snap will hit from really happen. How they really felt unless prevail modern day perspective on it. Let's hear what they said. Of course after ninety history as well so rumbled on a bit That's the coin of the whole motivation is not necessarily may shutting off what i can write trying to rise. One is a candidate getting best stories out there. Because i think there's a lot left to learn from it. I mean i think it's i think it's it's a wonderful way to give a new perspective on On events which are the basic outlines of which are extremely well known but but the ways in which people participated now. We mentioned this just a little bit in the in the pre conversation but the recent passing prince philip who was ship officer who was on valiant at came out upon you brought up the question of how many of these people are still around the there must be very new. People ch Anywhere who are still alive. Any member who have any meaning memory of battleship calm. I mean i suspect most of them are now probably from the six battleships. Hooks american battleships. Not fun at surrogate straight. But yeah i mean. Do you know of any of these. These folks who are still alive who the will be in. The cabin was was one Chat who's from the wolves fight just a few years ago. But i mean i was. I was reading in contacted. Because when i wrote that book. He was teams in Association which was one of the organization. So i price for that so he may still be with his thing. That are very many was getting very old. And with with with bismarck if somebody was seventeen and quite them to teenage young officers and the young writings they had to be that age. Really still be with us to be comfortable. You find anybody. And i was in nearly two thousand. So you're talking Twenty sixteen still back project and the early two thousands to about two thousand night. When did they choose rodney. That book feick cetera issue. Now it's it's sad but it's it's inevitable on friday that many night just in preparation for this. I done a quick.

"I mean when i was reading that part the horror here i was putting myself into the shoes of a german surface officer and the horror of the idea of taking my battleship into submarine infested waters. And hoping that the you got it right hoping their silhouettes were right and so when they opened up on. What they thought was an enemy battleship. They weren't actually yeah. It has a short fattened thinking about the challenge of course was that they were already phoned of using wall signals. So i guess idea was that was done. It's a master plan was that he would use radio signals to marshall. Everybody liked chess piece on the board. So i guess they would have all tied down as you say if you get your Schick splitting wrong. You can end up putting them into their own vessel but inevitable. So they didn't didn't have that mishap vitamin that happened on the side with the with the the swordfish attempting on cruiser yacht excusable. It feels less than a submarine. Yeah i think the and the problem was they thought. The prince can heavy crusoe's still with his mom when they found getting and is that case van. You say what you think you want to see so other. I thought it was bizarre. Or they the prince william will have have got that that ship and they did any coleslaw shaking fists on golden fortunately the caption of sheffield cones. Pay torpedoes and the magnetic detonators faulty so they blew up before they could Most of them could get anywhere near the sheffield so there was no harm done. But you're right. It was a it was g in the so catastrophe blue on blue. That can how right right. So i've read several. Vr the books. I've read the book. I've read The one of the submarine books is it fair to say that you've developed really method here. That's based around these first person narratives because really what you're saying with arnim. We knew describe the battle but you are really serious about here. Are the people who hear them explaining in their words So do you feel like. Is this sort of do you right now. Regardless as your method your way of approaching these questions giving this first person account dates back to the first book The dice by hundred journalists. To be honest when i was reportsa because i in nineteen ninety. Two plymouth which is a naval by city and the time of the anniversary in one thousand forty anniversary the fiftieth so there are still lots of veterans around and in a city like plymouth temple naval base devonport division of the royal navy which is thousands of site as marines. There were a lot of veterans. Then and so you could pick an event for mood. If you're local became the defensible says defensible. Trying to the mobile navy shows much bigger than it is today as well.

Interview With Shane Balkowitsch
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today we are going old school and we are going deep into a really really wonderful type of photography. That's not practice very much anymore and really frankly when you see it. It's going to knock your socks off. We're talking with shane belkevich. Shane happens to live just a couple hours. West of me out here on the great plains of north america up north dakota chain that afternoon. How's everything out in the middle part of the state. good scott. thanks for having me on. We've got a little snow last night. Which was a very welcomed. Got a little snow over here. It's cold it's january is imagine about winner on the american that should be asked should be. You're absolutely right shane. You are just absolutely mesmerizing with the work. You're doing you do wet plate colin on photography. You do when one of the earliest styles of photography and admit you know. When i first heard about it i thought why in the world would anyone want to go through that amount of work for an image that i can do in my mirrorless. Dsl are very quickly. And then i realized how wrong. I was can't do that image and i certainly can't come up with a product that you've come up with so first question for people that that are familiar with the process. What is wet plate photography. What is the whole call it on process. Yeah so a wet plate clothing. Photography's invented by frederick scott archer in. He started working on about eighteen. Forty eight we believe in eighteen fifty one. He came out with a journal article in a scientific journal and presented it to the world. So what we're doing. I'm sure many of your listeners. Know about daguerreotype process which was invented by the declare. The frenchman About ten years. Before what plaguing frederick scott archer wanted to improve on that and This is what he came up with and the final product. And what your comment about why. You can't capture wet played in a modern a digital camera. Is that this is completely analog and the final images the images that i make. I an amber typist. That means i make my photographs on glass specifically for me black glass and these images are made out a pure silver on glass. And what's about silver silver does not degrade so these images that i have Have made over the last eight years of made a three eight hundred of them all by ten most most eight by ten black last amber types of they'll be here thousand years from now broken which which is not something you can save for princeton pigments in paintings and other things like that so the these are very archival images and i. it's just a very very romantic process. i was never photographer before. A two thousand twelve took my first exposure on october. Fourth never owned a camera. And i just find myself chasing this this historic process. It is really really interesting and we need to tell people that there is a movie out. There is called belkevich b. a. l. k. o. w. i t. s. c. h. on video. It's on amazon. Prime it is a documentary about you and your work and folks. You need to go there. You need to watch this film if you are in the any kind of photography. You need to do this but shane one of the things. That really intrigued me. Watching the film is that most of us that are in the photography files were making digital files. Or you know. We're coming up even if we're still dealing with old thirty five millimeter film or that kind of stuff Medium format film. You know we come up with a negative but then you know actual print is a temporary thing. You much more like a sculptor are making an object's this glass plate and it's not revisable you can't go back and tweak the highlights you can't go back and ask grain if you want. What is the appeal of making that object versus a kind of idea. We have to understand most web play. Cloudy and artists There was one here in bismarck. North dakota orlando scott gough. When he he was known for capturing the first ever photograph of sitting. Bull here bismarck. In the in this process that i practice and i i happen to capture ernie lapointe the great grandson. The city hundred thirty five years later in the same town in the same process but goth would have made a negative like you had said he would make a glass of so instead of putting his images onto black glass which you cannot contact with. He would have used clear glass. Clear glass as you insinuated. You can make multiple copies and you can enter. The final product in that scenario is a print. Because you want to be able to sell you know apprentice shayna print scott where wants to print you can make as many prints of these want is your business and it. Did you know good to have a one off plate because you and you know when you're talking about eighteen fifty one is no way of duplicate and they didn't have scanners and we couldn't do anything like that so you know. I think there's something very special about the the fact that these images are one offs and they can never be duplicated in they can never be replicated. When i make one of these images. I've for instance. I've dropped an image once and tried to go five minutes later. Ten minutes later tried to make this image with the same sitter the same camera. The same lenses saint chemistry. And i can never get back to that so if you look at this romantically. I'm not actually taking snapshots people actually making ten second movies. I'm still life movies. Because my exposures in my natural studio that i built here in bismarck. It's called nostalgic glassware plate studio the first one in in the country bill of the ground up and over a hundred years. I'm making ten second exposure. So there's heartbeats and there's blood flowing through the person there's a couple. Maybe a blinker to and what. I really love about this is. Maybe there's a thought so. I'm capturing thought on that piece of glass pure silver. That'll be here on.

But her views on full display despite the fact that she repeatedly refused to answer questions about her opinions, questions on such settled issues as the right to birth control and the right to vote, including a peaceful transition of power. As the result of that vote, all got I cannot comment answers. When asked about her view opposing same sex marriage, she offhandedly used the term sexual preference when referring to the LGBT plus community, even though many activists say the term is offensive. One after another Democratic senators tried to press her on her record, such as the fact that she previously signed onto an ad describing abortion as barbaric and calling for the Roe v. Wade decision to be overturned. Her two dissenting opinions and abortion related cases, one of which involved allowing minors to get an abortion without notifying parents by way of judicial bypass, and another that would have required fetal remains to be formally buried. Observers say 17 cases related to abortion are one step away from the Supreme Court and three including a 15 week abortion ban from Mississippi could be taken up as early as its next session. And her only nod to any progressive opinion. Barrett seemed to support the idea of desegregation by calling the Brown v. Board of education decision a super precedent that isn't likely to ever be overturned. The Judiciary Committee is set to vote to approve barrettes nomination next week with a vote of the full Senate by the end of the month. Bang. With the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court. Questions about her ties to the religious right have raised concerns about the fate of Roe v. Wade and a person's right to reproductive choices. Her turn. Reporter Ellen La Luzerne spoke with Karen Garst, who author to anthologies about the impact of religion on women. Women beyond belief, and women versus religion. Last received her PhD in curriculum and instruction from UW Madison and is a current resident in the state of Oregon. 2016 you published a book Women Beyond belief. In the book's introduction, You stated that you wrote the book after learning of the 2014 U. S. Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby lobby's denial of reproductive care for their employees. Your reaction was to question why a corporation can use its religious beliefs. To dictate the healthcare a woman could receive. Fast forward to today when we're witnessing the Supreme Court nomination process for a woman who is a valid Lee, a member of an extremist religious sect that believes that women should submit to their husbands What was your reaction when you heard about the nomination of Amy Clooney Barrett for the U. S Supreme Court. First of all, I wasn't surprised because Trump has already appointed people to the Supreme Court. I didn't watch quite a bit of the confirmation hearings of his previous nominees, so I wasn't surprised that he appointed someone who's conservative. He vowed when he was elected that he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade. If Connie Bear is confirmed, What is your opinion about the impact that this might have for future cases such as the Affordable care act and a woman's right to choose? Well, I think it's going to have very dilatory ous impacts because now we're going to have a Supreme Court. That is considered very conservative. I believe six of the justices will be considered Catholic, and there are going to write decisions as they have for that have a conservative bent. I think it's very unfortunate that the Supreme Court has become so politicized. If we look in our history. One of the things that I was doing some research on was previous decisions and Brown vs the Board of Education. Which desegregated schools was fundamental change to the way this society was operating was a 9 to 0 decision, and people saw what was happening in society, and I talked to a friend of mine who is a lawyer there. Who said, you know, there's this public sentiment. That's how culture changes. And people were attuned to that, And now we're not appointing people to the Supreme Court who have an open view. They're very, very one sided, and I think it's totally tragic that she's going to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What do you think the consequences will be for Roe v. Wade and access to freedom of choice? An abortion? There will always be abortion. The question is whether it's going to be safe and whether it's going to be legal. There has been throughout time before Roe v. Wade. It was back alley abortions, and I think younger women today they don't know what it was like before then Roe v. Wade. If it were completely overturned, I think would have a revolution. It might take a while to put it together. Rather, I think what they'll do is just approved all these restrictions on it, making the doctors who on abortion clinics we associate with the hospital, whether it's making AA lot regulations on the clinic itself and what it can have and what it has to have delegating more. The authority of states and people are going to have to say I don't want to live in a state like this. If they overturn it completely and make abortion illegal. I just Hey, I'm ready to start the revolution. I don't think they're going to go that far. But who knows? What do you think, drives the women who are supporting people like Coney, Bharat and Support these types of efforts to keep women as subservient to men, such as the belief system of Annie Cockney Barrett. Religion is an indoctrination in a set of beliefs. I'm 70 when I was growing up in the fifties in Bismarck, North Dakota. Every person I knew went to a church or there were three Jewish families who went to a synagogue. But it was part of everybody's life. So you're indoctrinated in that It's your family. Everybody else around you is like that. Unless you're exposed to something different. This shapes who you are. And we know that Trump was elected by conservatives by people who identified as religion, particularly fundamentalist religion. That's too he appeals to, and it's unfortunate that the religion hasn't changed enough to deal with our society today. What is interesting to me? Is that this woman, Amy Cockney Barrett is very intelligent. She is ah, Notre Dame professor. She's an appellate court judge, and she has seven kids. I can't imagine trying to balance all that. But in spite of that conservative religion, it is pretty hard to say, Well, she's helped meat of her husband because she is Ted her own career. In your

"Your recently chatting with Marc Baker. Offend of yours and you shared with him some pictures of. You had a bird strike in your beloved. Husky. So do you mind sharing that story with us? We're we're in what we doing how did it happen? We were hunting pheasants in southern South Dakota, a friend of mine, and we hundred up the other short October thirtieth. North here where we live. In five o'clock start to get dark probably five thirty and we got out of this hunting place. So we landed in. Fargo in the dark from southern South Dakota South Appear South Dakota gradually, the town Dallas, and I just came out of a farm. Land Right at this camp where we hunted and I came Outta there I'd feel that Pierre South Dakota way down. So I- plenty of fuel to get to Fargo North Dakota. Dropped my friend off in the dark refueled and started to Bismarck and it was. Also a night ceiling was like A. Twenty, five, hundred, three, thousand feet, which was fine and abused was okay. But my Husky that I had was via foreign the airplane I had replaced the attitude indicator with an electronic one with a decent. Attitude indicator and a ball. So it's basically. A little better than needle airspeed but not much but enough to fly at night if I had to. Actually cost of Fargo heading towards Bismarck North Dakota and I, could see occasionally I was getting a little bit of something. So I put my light on and. I was getting some snow and my airplane doesn't have PTO. Wasn't bad snow but I could see it in the lights and strobes. But I still like it visibility and I was blow the clouds and so I just put her long thirty five hundred feet. Fargo is nine hundred feet above sea level Bismarck in sixteen, Seventy Four. So I'm. Heading west from Fargo North excluded Bismarck North Dakota thirty five hundred feet so roughly fifteen hundred feet above the ground. You know. Easter Bismarck and I've just bad jomon happy trucking along my GPS is working I checked into bismarck approach control. I was squawking the code they gave me and you know just going home all of a sudden. Bo The windshield came in on me and my first reaction was. Airplanes. facture my shop. Why would the windshield break in on me and there was something covering my right I didn't know what it was my glasses. Were smashed my headset. Knocked off it went in the back seat. There was a tremendous amount of cold air hitting. He was about twenty degrees at night. And the bird that hit me I had no idea what it was really came through the front windshield high and took the roof out HUSKIES got plexiglas on the roof to trip that out and then it blew the left windows out. Don't know how but the left window system and yet the the bottom of the flap and cut yet and hit the tail. At, this point in my life I have to, you know bifocals readers so I could see anything. Looking down for a frequency and so lauren cannot partially there for a second. So you just flying back from a nice weekend hunting trip. It's at night snow in a little bit but visibility is good. Just a dark night I presume with overcast. But you're over pretty flat terrain out there North Dakota and it's interesting to me. You didn't hear a loud Bam or the first thing you notice was just your windshield caved in and for a few minutes it sounds like you had no idea why I didn't have any idea. What happened until I got it on the ground other than the windshield came in. I told you the approach control guys I found my headset backseat and cut it up and got it on and told I got a windshield and they were asking me if I wanted to emergency they were voted me about that and I'm trying to fly the airplane and they sure get to see on the ground and I don't Della -mergency please you know slummy fly this thing and so I was able to slow down slightly I didn't WanNa. Definitely wanted to get it on the ground quick but I had a good engine. It was running fine no vibration and control the airplane. I L runs and everything was working right and so I had to airplane from then on it was mainly. So cold in there, it took a big chunk of the top of the airplane out so. I had a tremendous airs, twenty degrees at night. so as immediately, really cold and swansdown helps some. But not much and So I had about twenty five miles to get it to where I live Bismarck. Fortunately, there wasn't any win that night they lit up of a runway for me to one which. Pretty much straight in. I was really glad to get it on the ground and glad they didn't have a serious crossman to deal with or anything else. But I was not able to switch over to our tower frequency or a ground control. But my friends were working in the tower they've been working with me for twenty five miles. And I sold my hey, I can't see that. The frequency. You GotTa land me on approach and taxi me on approach which they did Bismarck's relatively small community in and I knew the tower guy at that time. That was really about it. I got it on the ground and got it our hangar where we got some lights on it, and then I began to see what really happened.

Will the Paper of the Future Be Made of Poop?
"It's become an evergreen piece of advice for aspiring writers. Put Your Butt in the chair and write a first draft no matter how crappy. Now thanks to a breakthrough in chemical technology that first draft can be literally crap or at least printed on it researchers announced at a meeting of the American Chemical Society in March of two thousand eighteen. That it's possible to turn manure from cows elephants goats and other grass munchers into yes paper as you may already know. Paper is made from cellulose. That usually comes from trees. Not every place has a lot of trees but as we all know everybody poops and some of those poopers leave patties around for stepping in or collecting if you of a mind to collect poop like these. Acs scientists are one of the researchers who presented this idea at the ACS meeting in question Alexander Bismarck. Phd was driving around Crete and watched goats eat grass and poop it out. He thought that maybe the goats were doing to the grass. What paper manufacturers due to trees turn it into cellulose that could be made into paper? Because of course that's what you think of while you're driving around an idyllic island. Chretien excursions some animals. It turns out do a pretty good job. Pooping out paper cellulose depending on. Which animal is doing? The Manure Manufacturing Bismarck said in a press statement up to forty percent of that manure is cellulose which is then easily accessible to make paper from trees. The TREES HAVE TO BE GROUND. Way Down by machine into a pulp before being made into proper paper. Goats do that work for free. Every day of their grass munching poop lieven lives. The only thing they require is more grass which makes more poop which makes more paper and they need some water to drink and maybe scratches on their little chins but either way. It's a more environmentally friendly process than traditional papermaking and it's not just goats. The researchers moved onto piles of Paddy's from horses cows and elephants to elephants in wildlife parks in Africa. Our number one at going number two at the San Francisco Zoo alone. An adult male African elephant can produce three hundred pounds. That's one hundred thirty six kilos of Pooh. That's a lot of potential paper. The first uses for this PU paper would probably be industrial according to the researchers it could filter wastewater before it's released into the environment which seems fitting but papyrus or Nanno paper as the researchers rather boringly call. It could also be used to write on. So don't give up fellow writers. Our first drafts could soon be really truly crappy.
Wait, I Dont Have To Be Killing Myself At The Gym? Ft. Anne Mahlum
"Easiest way to explain it for folks that we we have to put ourselves in a category. It's it's very intensified version of of pilates when people think of pilates or traditional plots. I think as we think of you know folks. That are lying down restorative you're doing to rehabilitate from an injury or something of that sort or you do pilates because you can't do something else and that was frankly you know my association with the word to and then I took a pilates class in L. A. and I didn't know you could work out like this. I didn't know you could get such intensity so safely moving. So slowly right. That's awesome what I like about the class though that I feel like differentiates from other plots classes. But it's in the dark like dimly Lynn. Because I always felt like if I've been to other classes everyone is staring at me while I cannot hold this plank like it makes you feel like you're on your own little bubble and then you could just like look. Oh I used to teach me. I had two hyphen. Yeah with our eyes. Honestly I think that classes in the dark. Make a huge difference. I noticed that I actually don't really like classes if they're not in the dark because I think it might be because just the mood is better mood. Yeah Yeah there's an element I think when you walk in and you know you're in a different environment that it's not just the lighting and everything is the same when when classes going or when it's off you sort of get into this zone when lights go off. Music comes up. And you're like okay. We're GONNA do this for fifty minutes. I was telling you about our new studio leader which is underground. So you really feel like you're like okay. We're we're doing this and I'm here and I'm president. Your phone doesn't work down there so you can't really escape pilates. Cave plotting gave so okay. Even though you are the solid core founder. You have a lot more to your story so we wanted to kind of hear your whole story. I guess out. We'll let you get the narrative Dr Gaining the beginning. Wh-a were we born. I was mentioning to one of your teammates. Hear Sean. I still spend time in North Dakota which is where I was born. I'm actually. They're like a good chunk out of out of the month. All my family is still there split my time between North Dakota DC New York and the news usually another trip around the studios or personally So I I do live out of a suitcase is in North Dakota like what North Dakota versus New York City. Give us a comparison. Internet is coming North Dakota. It's I mean listen. It's it's Kinda like a big suburb. Bismarck is where I grew up goes but now it's a big suburb. There's like sixty seven thousand people there. But they're solid core there. I opened a studio there in two thousand seventeen. My High School were just clamoring to like. How would you just open one of these? We have nothing and I was like. I don't really know if this is going to be so successful but I just felt like it would work. We would at least not lose money and so there was just like this. This pride about you know bringing something back there to my home state. And so yeah. Now there's six in the entire tire state. There's aren't Fargo grand forks. Mina are you do you dominate the North Dakota simply because there's no competition but yeah orange theory you know orange Syria as popping up in Fargo. There's it's it's becoming more. I think were I think we were part of that movement? You know we obviously New York and La Boutique. Fitness has been around for a long time but these middle kind of we call them tertiary tier two tier three tier four markets get overlooked. They don't get anything. Yeah but there are people. They're looking for things to do. You know they want their active fit and So yeah like we opened Bismarck. Where like actually there's something here. We think we can open up in a lot smaller markets and be super successful because we focus so much on community and the results are there. That's awesome all right so North Dakota so tell us about like growing up high school all that I know there's a bunch there. Yeah I think any time you know. All of us grew up in certain areas. We can think back to. What will you like being a kid there? And I'm like Oh this is how everybody lives like. This is what it's like being a kid. No matter where you are in the world you just have such a small view of what reality is so house. Big Backyard to brother sister middle class middle class family. I've done a good amount of public speaking so I feel my stories on lines with policies for redundancy of people have heard in no don't Yeah but every okay so yeah so I I truly thought I had my entire life figured out by the time I was twelve years old because my yeah my life went really great until twelve. It's like cool. I'm good at sports like I got boys chasing me around at recess at playground. School seems pretty easy. This thing is like totally fine. I got it and then when I was sixteen years old. I got kind of hard dose of Reality of what my dad's life was like. How stable my parents? My parents marriage was so when I was sixteen or seventeen before my sophomore year. In High School Is when I found out. My Dad was a gambling addict and he told us because he was which most addictions do. They get to the point where they're like you've got to your rock bottom and you do something. There's no other way out than to tell people what's going on. So Miandad owed a lot of people a lot of money and he had to come clean with my mom And my mom kicked me out of the House that day and for kid who thinks he's got like a stable family is going on. What do you mean? Dad's not living here. But unfortunately my dad went through drug and alcohol addiction when I was really young so have never seen my drink or do drugs but my mom has and she's like I can't go through this again and we didn't. We weren't poor but we didn't have a lot of money. My Dad sold insurance. My Mom's a teacher. So money was my mom's Achilles heel like you threaten Matt and my dad did like our savings was drained our education all of these accounts that she worked so hard for so she just couldn't recover from it. I get it now but at the time. I'm like your big bad mother. Who's taking my father away. So the next three years a really tumultuous with my mom I blamed her for my imperfect life and I also spend that time trying to fix with other Both both unsuccessful efforts. Nothing good came out of those approaches. Frankly and that's when I became a runner I turned to running to deal with all of the emotional turmoil I was going through and found strength in the movement found strength in moving my body forward all the metaphors around taking things one step at a time it just the whole thing really resonated with

"Offices in Chandler the Biltmore as well as Bismarck and this is the show that talks all about your money the world of investing through the eyes of a reformed broker who basically did everything the way I say not to do it now applied to learn that for myself like we all do as we grow and experience a maturity in life and that's why I started keystone I said we'd be attacks practice we have a CPA involved in every plan we need to be doing our clients taxes for them is there anything we can be doing to reduce taxes is there anything we should be thinking about at the tail end of an eleven year bull market maybe a talent maybe it keeps going maybe were Australia and we're mid cycle to a twenty five year bull market that's the tricky part right we don't know but today's show is something I think is really important because if you're like most of the hundreds of folks that were meeting with your keys all partners you're thinking the same thing that they are which is how long can this last what if we see a recession what if this thing with Iran escalates how do you manage risk I'm near retirement I'm in retirement how do I balance this I don't I just go put under my mattress but I also wanna go down forty percent of another wait scenario occurs and this is a phenomenal time to be reviewing this due to what's happened the market the last eleven years in particular the twenty five percent run up we saw last year here's an analogy I think you know it's fitting for those you have ever gone to Las Vegas with friends so we've all been there I mean you're you're at the blackjack table with your friends and you I think in my younger days when I just turned twenty one and we go there to course were broke we had no money and so at extravagant night of gambling was grabbing fifty dollars out of the wallet and saying I hope this last me for the evening so I can have some fun but we're sitting down their bills no real classy establishment of bills in and you look over your friend aid and their fifty boxes of four hundred right you you know the story I'm talking about we've been there and I lost my friend like in this case it was it was getting Dave what what is your Christian with a an animal it's Dave what what you start with your fifty Bucks just like all of us we just put on fifty Bucks that's on playing with for the night when I'm done it's over this is just my entertainment and and I said did you have four hundred dollars like this games odds are that you're gonna lose you've taken fifty I'm going to four hundred and what's the next thing that I tell that person what's the next thing that I tell Dave we've all done color up get for black chips from this dealer right now stand up from the table walk over the cashier will here for three more nights you have your hundred and fifty dollars for the next three nights and you already have the other two fifty in your pocket you're going home to tell your wife Hey I actually made two hundred fifty dollars was gone I mean I know that never happens but I'll look you might that was really fun to pay for my hotel but what does Dave do generally John I'm on here Hey Sir can I get another cocktail over here and they start playing two hands because the person next to him stands up great actively to into once I'm so hot in the win twice as fast and it definitely you're walking down the Vegas strip with them at the end of the night and they have no money left and and there's there lamenting like out of this happened I can't believe it we all know what's going to happen like you were going to win for an infinite amount of time in blackjack like the odds are against you even if you play perfect and so the best office for Dave was to protect what he'd already built the best offense for many of you were within ten years of retirement is to have a conscientious nous of protecting the assets in the event the market drops and so what I want to encourage you one for today is look at re balancing have you re balanced have you harvested some of these gains that you have created have you taken some of your chips off the table if you are near or in retirement you really wanna be asking yourself in less this thing goes up Jack the beanstalk to the sky what should I be doing if you're not exactly sure how to downshift if you're not exactly sure how you do that or maybe you did downshift and you're sitting all in cash in high yield savings and bonds and annuities and last year you made three percent when the market one of twenty five in your own so I think I may have the pendulum swing a little too far the other direction but I'm not really sure where I go with this right we see that from time to time to you just get way too conservative as you approach or get into retirement because you're not really sure where you input some risk how you strategically do that if that's you as well that is why we provide this retirement map review that you heard me talk about what a great opportunity here at the start of the year after a twenty five percent of market to say this is a fantastic time to be reassessing my situation if that's you can.

"About this new year and welcome back to Bismarck radio on me I I want this year to be a year of transition I want it to be a year of growth and I wanted to be a year of health and you know all of those things are important to me as they are to all of us and to be the best version that I can be and one of the things that I do every day and is it's just something that after years and years of doing my I never really understood into the past year but the importance of DHEA and what we lose and one of the people that we have come on the show to share with us about DHEA is he would would and Hugh is the founder of twist twenty five his father is is it was a brilliant doctor who hated this product for his patients and if you're wondering why you've got that belly fat jiggling or why you go to the gym day after day and you're not seeing any improvement in your muscle mass or wire up most nights you're not getting a good night's sleep and the list goes on and on and on DHEA is so profound and so powerful and yet we don't really for whatever reason we don't understand it and we don't hear about how much DHEA we lose and so here for the new year give us a real primer and let's go back to the basics and and welcome it's nice to have you with us thanks Frank it's great to be with you as always yeah DHEA it's one of those things you don't you don't hear about and the drug companies kind of gave up on it many years ago because they they said oh well you know this doesn't really work and we can't get a patent on it DHEA is the most abundant naturally occurring pro hormones in the human body by pro hormone I mean a hormone precursor it's what it's a carbon chain molecule that the body uses and depending on which carbon chain is removed you get all of the downstream hormones which are and regions and estrogens all the estrogens include the Esther dial estrone estradiol there's a there's about fifty different hormones that use DHEA as a as a foundation or pre cursor and eight and we make DHEA from birth and we if men and women alike produce DHEA in the adrenal glands primarily and then the gonads as well and we make more and more DHEA as we get older through our our adolescents and and teenage years and we make the most of it between the ages of about twenty to twenty five and it's the same in all human beings we are then in our what we call our reproductive prime as humans are at our best physically and and mentally and and functionally and and then DHEA begins to decline at a rate of about two percent per year and so what I mean is is by yeah that's pretty rapid by age thirty five most people are making twenty percent less than they were when they were twenty five by age fifty you're making half as much fifty percent less than you did when you were at your best or at your peak and that continues so that by the time your you know in your seventies eighties you're making sometimes ten percent or five percent of the DGA that you use to make when you were feeling your best and that your best cognitively health wise and so it's a it's a gradual decline in people don't realize that and then those that have heard of DHEA if he's taking DHEA pills and don't really see much effect from it and and the reason is you've got to use DHEA the right way as a cream to really get the benefits from it better there and so we can we can talk about all the different things teaching yeah Bonnie yeah I love the fact that it's such a beautiful cream and there's no parabens there's no harsh chemicals it is easily absorbed and this morning I just have to share with all of you that I had to take the dog out in its bitter cold wind chills like zero in Boston this morning it's one of the few cold days that we've had we have been very lucky but today is we didn't we didn't get like today it's really freezing and I put the DHEA cream on my face as a little barrier for that wind because it it has you know coconut oil and it has vitamin E. oil and it has everything that I need and it's getting absorbed into my skin because our skin is the largest organ and Q. this this is so critical for my every day routine at this point now I don't go a day without my DHEA cream I just don't it's so easy and and it's good for your skin and then you know you will you will see and feel the difference in so many ways so many studies if you just even you know go to twist twenty five dot com it you won't believe the studies and the one that really just always sets me back always always always is when they looked at nursing home patients yeah and when they took the blood from nursing nursing home patients the ones that were vibrant that did not need assistance all have higher DHEA levels than those that were secondary in in bed and not wanting to do anything and they had a DHEA levels below in the in the gutters so you have medical research shows that that your cognitive function and what they call Visio spatial awareness which is kind of how you keep your balance and your stability when you're walking or what have you are much improved when you're DHEA level is higher and so the arm cognitive function and maintaining good mental health as you know in in nursing homes many of the people that are there are are there because they can't function on their own like the L. two and and we're you know we're out of time so you've got a great offer for the new year and.
