"Elissa is here. Producing. You're seeing breaking news about college football? Yeah, the statement The statesmen is reporting that sources are saying the Big 10 has cancelled the football season. That is huge. That is big, just flat out canceled their season yet they voted to cancel the season in a historic move all because of the concerns related to the Corona virus pandemic. Well. The Mid America Athletic Conference did that over the weekend and got the ball rolling on this. It was it was Pretty shocking to see how rapidly this thing started Building moment. Um Because What what has happened in the last few days to make so many people believe that there's just no way to play any games and get through the season safely. But what's interesting is over the weekend, we saw a decline in the number of cases it was below the highest number you know below. I think 50,000 nationwide than it has been for some time. And so yeah. I don't know what it was that was like, Okay, We're just not going to be able to make this happen unless it's been there. Reports of some positive cases in different camps that have seen took on back to practice Boy that is a massive financial blow for that entire conference. Because they depend on the TV revenue not only for football but all the other athletic programs. All right, we'll keep you up to date on that, and I'm sure that Jason Beato and Ed will have a full discussion 4 to 6 sports talk. What was the most watched TV channel on American TV in June and July, The New York Daily News says Fox News Channel was number one. And we're not talking about comparisons with CNN and MSNBC. They say this was number one among all channels, ABC, CBS, NBC. Pick a channel any channel. The big ones. The cable one's Fox News was number one in June and July from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Central time prime time. In the most coveted demographics, and the New York Daily News says that this demonstrates the size and resilience of America's audience for pro trump opinion. And the loyalty of Fox News viewers. They asked Professor Nicole Hemmer. Who is a professor at Columbia University in New York about this, and the professor says These conservatives view things through a highly partisan lens. That is what is driving these astronomical ratings for Fox News Channel, beating all other channels. I don't know if that was supposed to be a compliment, or like what goes back in the compliments as insane. They can't look at other views. They only have one thing in mind. And so they're only going to go to a channel that shows the same thing that they're thinking, and they're the only ones that do that. Because I'm pretty sure you get a progressive. They're not so much on open conservative viewpoints. They're not falling. I actually was shocked by this In the sense that has nothing to do with Fox, but shocked in the sense that news would be what outdid Everything in prime time because I would think a lot of people are just fed up with hearing the same thing. I mean, we've been like in a time warp since March that they may with one and escape from it. So that was actually kind of shocking to me that it would be a news station. That was the highest rated over all things during primetime. I think when you Ah, see and hear and read that cities are burning. That is something that people want and need to see. They can't get enough of it. I mean, it's unprecedented time in our country. When you have a pandemic, you have a presidential race, and then you add on protests and riots in cities burning. We'll probably people are just the opposite of me. I do that all day. And so when it's prize, I'm I'm like I got to get away and they probably all day. Don't do this, right. Right. You have to remove yourselves. But people who work then in the evening, there is an appetite for this. And this story. Says that this is really kind of unprecedented that they had higher ratings for then even things like Major League Baseball's return. Pick anything, you name it, and the Fox News channel was number one in this professor attributes that to the loyalty of conservatives in the way they view things and sees it as a sign that the Trump base is still rock solid. Because she goes on to make another comment about that that this this should be something that his team is very pleased to see. Well, I don't. I don't think anyone questioned that. His base has been solid throughout this and maybe has even strengthened when you see the lawlessness that is going on around the country. Well, I do see some headlines from time to time that say, Well, maybe his base is eroding in the suburbs. It's pointing to the polling to say, Look, he's starting to lose some of that support. But to me, I think that that's AH pick at trying to create something that's not there if we put it in the headlines enough And people see it. People may start thinking that and maybe rethink what they were previously considering. I think it's just golden. Alright. 51283605 90. We have a case out of California, where the state attorney general is now jumping into a case of a young former mother. Who is charged with murder. Ah, the evidence indicated that her baby that she was carrying had met amphetamines in its system. So when the authorities found out that that was the case, she was arrested and charged with murder after she delivered the stillborn baby. The baby had toxic levels of meth in the system. But now the state attorney general of California is jumping into the case, saying the charges against this woman should be dropped. I don't know about that. I mean, because she knew that taking drugs Really not a smart thing to do, but it's but you're not supposed to do that. That you pass that on to the baby. You are caring and because that baby died as a result of that. I'm sorry. You are liable for that you without you. Putting the drugs in your system. That baby doesn't get the drugs. She made the decision. She decided to do the math. The state attorney general in California, however, says that under our rules and system, we should not punish women who cannot because of addiction or a lack of resource is practice Prenatal health. And he says the whole point of our system is not to punish women who might be in a desperate situation. So he's trying to make the case that she liked the resource is and she was an addict, not making good decisions. Therefore, she should not be held accountable by the criminal justice system. So because so by that logic were to never hold any addicts accountable for their decisions that they make because they don't know what they're doing. Bull. They know every time they shoot up that it's something that they should not be doing, but they choose to do it anyway. This is ah, baby in the womb, and it's not like there's not tons of resource is out there we pay how much money To these resource is for playing to parenthood that can help you get that through there for all the other different things that are out there to help you, Deering your pregnancy Now the D A. Who decided to indict and prosecute this mother. Says. Look, I appreciate the attorney general being interested in the case. Maybe he just hasn't done all the homework he needs to do. This is not about a still birth. This is about a mother's overdose. Of late term viable fetus. I don't know how late it was, but will do say maybe third trimester. They don't point that out in the story, he says This was a perfectly viable fetus and it was in the late term and she made the decision to do the math. I think he's got a good argument there. Do Teo to me and she did. She murdered her kid, her unborn kid. It's in these kind of cases have unfolded before another jurisdictions and been successfully prosecuted. And it sounds as though this D A has a strong case here. The The woman is 26 years old. And he did charge her with murder, not manslaughter. Which that maybe a little bit tougher to prove, because usually in most states, that means intent..

War or he skinned knee or, you know, or he's just or he's just emulating when his parents have been jamming down his tiny little throat since the moment he was born. I suspect that if you go back and look at this study, which was conducted by Columbia University and the British ecological Society So I guess they could study both sides of the pond. You'd find out that this percentage of Children that go outside and have climate change anxiety are having that muck shovelled by their parents.

We drive up the camp place north of us connected was called McConkie so we would go up there. And I hated it. Absolutely hated it. Was it because of climate change.

That's obviously that's Ah, you know, one of these daily current her type of onion articles. The problem arose. Which is a really poor choice of words here when I realized that other people in the park filmed the naked dude chasing the wild boar Holding a yellow bag with a laptop in it. So That happened. Happened in Germany. A German man sunbathing. This is like in the middle of Berlin, too. So if you don't know this People nude sunbathe in the middle of Berlin. Right. The middle of the city in Germany will be out of park and Perfectly acceptable. And a lot of these people shouldn't be out in the middle of Ah, Major city naked. So if you ever over in Germany or if you have been over to Germany, you may have experienced some of this. They also apparently at this park at this lake in Berlin.

In fact, the boars in the video had first eating a pizza from the man's backpack. So he's conked out on Sonny. He wakes up in a pizza, Orson. He wakes up.

Topiramate and Adderall Reduce Cocaine Use
"We often say that single positive studies need replication and here comes one in two thousand, twelve randomized trial found that the combination of toe.

This new study sought to replicate that although it was by the same research group is the original one Columbia's New York state psychiatric. Institute. The.

It was a double blind randomized placebo controlled trial that tested the combination of adderall Exeter with. Toe Pyramid, likely earlier study the treatment worked on primary measure. How many patients stayed sober for at least three weeks none achieved that on the placebo but fourteen percent did on the treatment. They were careful and conservative cardiovascular measures, and actually one in five patients had to stop the treatment due to elevated blood pressure pulse during the study. Otherwise, the treatment was well tolerated, which begs the question why not just use toe, pyramid on its own Toe Pyramid does have promising pilot studies on its own for cocaine use as does adderall on its own though that particular adderall study was in people with Adhd who used cocaine but clinically. Less risky of the to pyramid before considering the combination and it would be nice to see a study with three arms that could test out whether Toe pyramid alone is just as effective as the combination in this study. Toe. Pyramid was tight traded over six weeks to a maximum of one hundred milligrams twice a day an adderall ex SAR was titrate over two weeks to a Max of sixty milligrams per day. The authors suggested that the cardiovascular risks might have been lessened if adderall was tight traded more slowly.

Assisted Suicide for the Healthy
"Physician assisted suicide is sold to the public as a compassionate measure necessary to spare those who have no reasonable chance of recovery from the unbearable pain and suffering of the last days of their life. But in every context in which it's been made legal, however, what may be called euthanasia by another name has never remained limited to those rare instances on which it was sold. There are reasons that this particular slope has proven. So slippery literally everywhere, it's ever been made legal once it's decided that certain lives are. Not. Worth. Living well the list of people eligible for physician assisted suicide inevitably grows and as a list of people without intrinsic value grows, it becomes impossible to reevaluate lives based on some other criteria perhaps convenience or financial cost. Then it's a small step indeed from eligible to die to expected to die and wherever doctor assisted suicide is legalized and another Bayton switch from what is sold to the public. The category of terminal illness is often expanded to include chronic illnesses and permanent disabilities even mental illness and depression is Now considered sufficient justification for suicide in places such as Belgium and the Netherlands given this trajectory. It's only a matter of time before we dispense altogether with any requirement of any illness and fact that seems to be what's happening in the Netherlands a recently introduced bill. There would allow healthy individuals over the age of seventy five to request assisted suicide. If they had quote a strong death, wish for at least two months, the bill which is expected to be up for votes time in two, thousand, twenty, one would according. To the bill's sponsor, give the elderly the choice at an advanced age if they consider their lives complete to die with dignity with careful health thankfully, the two Christian parties in the governing coalition strongly opposed this measure, but it's GonNa be tough to keep it from becoming law after all bills only the next logical step in the whole Dutch trajectory having a brace what novelist Walker Percy called Sanitize Syndrome. Every promise to limit euthanasia in any way has only been broken everywhere and any so-called safeguards have been swept aside. For example, the people were promised that only those certifiably in their right mind would be euthanized. That was a lie after all anyone who goes into an American emergency room and tells doctors they have a strong death wish are gun with live with they'd be diagnosed with suicidal ideation admitted to the psych ward to not do this would be medical malpractice. Suicidal ideation is rightly regarded as a symptom of an underlying mental disorder and people who have untreated mental illnesses are not allowed to make life and death decisions or. At least they weren't in Oregon's doctor assisted suicide was legalized there over ninety six percent of people given lethal drugs never underwent a psychiatric evaluation to not evaluate at all is neglect. But if this Dutch bill becomes law, any elderly person who admits suicidal wishes won't be helped they'll be referred to those who will help them turn their wishes into reality. All of this is why as our recent what would you say video says? So clearly, there is nothing compassionate about physician assisted suicide nothing in fact, it's the exact. Opposite of compassion it's the abdication of civilized peoples responsibility to offer compassion to those who need it most when they need it most in his book Fanta Syndrome Walker Percy described how a society evolves to the point of thinking that killing patients. Instead of healing them is compassionate a psychiatrist he wrote of well trained in exquisitely credential doctors who quote, turn their backs on the hippocratic oath and kill millions of useless people unborn children born malformed children all for the good of mankind with his literary prophecy that was written. In nineteen eighty seven is becoming reality today. Some form of assisted suicide is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia that number only GonNa grow unless we can somehow convince people what true compassion is and make the idea that assisted suicide is compassionate unthinkable. So come to what would you say dot org for this latest video on assisted suicide in EUBOEA equipped to make the case and also please share it with your pastor community leaders and legislators. It's literally life and death issue
Columbia Sportswear's Gert Boyle Faced Down Sexism and Ageism
"Boyle. Grew. Columbia sportswear into a downfield powerhouse is the third Nar five-part series on the origin stories of iconic companies. We originally aired this episode about boils legacy after she died last. November, let's listen back. She was one tough mother and proud of it. Gert Boyle, the ninety five year old Chairman of Columbia Sportswear died earlier this month since then accolades poured in for boil, she was a formidable funny icon of the outdoor apparel world notorious for her resilience and her toughness qualities that empowered her to guide Columbia from near bankruptcy in the early seventies to what the New York. Times. Now calls the largest outerwear brand in the United States, a three billion dollar business. Gert Boyle was born gertrude lamb from in Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, four, when she was thirteen, the family fled Nazi Germany moving to Portland Oregon there her father lamb from bought the Rosenfeld hat company worried about antisemitism. He changed the name to the Columbia hat company. Columbia evolved from hats to outdoor year including a fishing vest that Gert than a homemaker raising three kids designed. Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it. But when the buyer a man offered, only fourteen hundred dollars she custom out and slammed the door in his face wrote Doug Schnitt span who profiled her for outside magazine. Gert said for fourteen hundred dollars. I would just as soon run this business into the ground myself that encounter galvanized Gruden Tim with a combination of unconventional strategies including being the first to use the waterproof fabric. GORTEX. They saved Colombia and set it on its growth path while all of their outdoor industry rivals including the north face in Patagonia.

One tough mother that campaign which ran from nineteen, eighty, four to two, thousand, five depicted gert down to earth mob oil. Now, take no nonsense mother who didn't suffer fools gladly, and who would allow nothing less than perfection A. A string of TV ads showed Gert using her son Tim as a product Tester to prove that they're outerwear was both warm and waterproof. In the first. She had tim dressed in Columbia's famous three layer system. Walk through a car wash. Her favorite one was one in which she drove a Zamboni on a hockey rink. Right over her long suffering son dressed in Columbia gear. Of course, he was lying the ice breathing through a straw. Straw apprentice out of the same era for the boundary peak parker quoted the Middle Aged Gert, saying I've got hot flashes to keep me warm. You'll need something that zips mob boils tough. Mother ads are credited with transforming a little known business into a household name inside the company. Her wit was also on display. She summed up her guidance for other leaders.

Until the day you die, she made it to the office on her ninety fifth birthday in March and was still having business discussions shortly before her death on November third according to outsides Schmidt's Pon. Gert Boyle will be remembered for many things among them, her belief which she shared often with younger women that a woman could do anything and also her conviction that older workers are assets in the workplace. Indeed, in her nineties, she wrote perhaps my presence in the office offers a message that managers liked to put older workers out to pasture. Out. To lunch.

The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act. What about the other companies? Amazon that also has incredible market share. Can you first catalogue just how big Amazon is and how much bigger it's gotten since the current virus epidemic? Yeah, you know, the Amazon has closed in on the market cap of 1.5 trillion They have 280 billion in revenue. They have increased dramatically. Actually, stock prices increased since the beginning of the Corona virus by I don't know the exact percentage don't want to get it wrong, but by a tremendous amount, in fact, And there was one day in which Jeff Bezos gained $13 billion personally, so they are the biggest of big attack for the first part of hearing they didn't get any questions, but representative Dia Paul brought it in accusing them. Of lying in front of Congress about how they treat third party sellers and pressing bass. Those hard on how he runs his marketplace. So they they, they've got some of they've got some fire. Coming in. Yeah, I guess the problem. There is not only well they sell, you know products from third parties always there slow selling their own products, and so they are. I guess in competition with 1/3 party supplies on their own platform. How does that work? I mean, that's I think the acquisition or the problem is that people worry that Amazon has become more or less the dominant online retailer. They have some competition Homer, but you know, more or less dominant. So you make it on Amazon are Or you don't make it at all. And if that's the marketplace, the prospect of You come up with successful thing? I don't know Better mousetrap, and then Amazon makes their own copy of it. So the Amazon version of it and then sells it for less. You know, that turns into a sucker's game, and I think that's been the main complaint about Amazon is ah, less that they You know about their competitors or something but more that they have turned the marketplace into something of a rigged game for their own products. Right and a sweet noted Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man. Right now, the company is you outline is just so big. It's hard to even wrap your mind around it. Is there any way you could break up Amazon or hasn't just become too big to break up? That's a good question. You know, it hasn't been subject to a lot of discussion, probably for the reasons you suggest. Most of scrutiny of Amazon is how they treat the marketplace. I think for a true old school antitrust type who just believes that too much power to concentrated should always be broken. Would want to switch, you know, break Amazon into some kind of pieces. One way might be to break off their Web services division, which is a dominant in its space. You could also imagine, as with it and t breaking it into baby Amazons. I guess that are supposed to compete with each other. But I know it hasn't been unlike Facebook and even Google. Has been talks about how would you break them up? Think Amazon. It's been more about can they? Can you get them to run their at their market place better? And then Google. Obviously a search giant and it's become a verb. It's such an intimate part of who we are at this point again. How would you break up Google if you could It's a good question. Let me let me say that Google has come under fire this hearing both from Sicily knee on the idea that they are essentially eating their ecosystem That is to say. You know if you if you like like with Amazon actually similar that if You know, you could come up with a really successful Web service of some kind in your sort of small enough that Google will make a version of it and then send all the traffic to it so that that's the accusation against them. As for you know, what would you do to Google one You could say, don't do that. That's what the Europeans are trying to dio. Another would be to say, Well, listen, it Google, you run the search part and just leave it there. Don't do everything else. Okay. Maybe run Gmail, maybe right maps. But all these other little things that are just clones of other companies. Stay out of that, or make them be independent companies. I should add. By the way, there's you know, I'm maybe we get to this, but there's been AH, Google face us a lot of Republicans during the hearing, talking about different issues. Trying to get Google to admit that it Ah Is too friendly to China. Eyes too unfriendly to the US Pentagon. That's been another theme of this hearing is that I think should be mentioned. Well, you bring up China, and I guess the argument against breaking up these companies is that they're competing against Chinese companies, which In many cases have the backing of the state and there's there's no limit to their monopolistic practices. And so if these are global companies, should there be different rules when it comes to monopoly now than there were, you know, back in the 19th century. Yeah. Or the 20th? Yeah, that is the argument. So you know, kind of goes like this. If you break up Facebook or make fix books, life difficulty the Chinese will take over. It's kind of a national champion like argument. So we have to have our guys. Um I don't find it convincing at all. Last time we heard that kind of argument was when Japan was the all great mighty power that was going to take over everything in America. And they said it so you can't break up the tea and you can't break up IBM. I think we've had a better track record. Forcing American companies to be competitive. It's not breaking them up, at least putting him under heavy scrutiny like Microsoft and hoping a new generation arises. So yeah, I think that's a pretty lame excuse not to enforce the law that put it that way. So what do you think is going to come out of this? You know, I think from what I've heard there was some documents that were coming out of this that nobody has seen. And I think they put more pressure on the administration and also the states to file complaints. I would not be surprised if Google ends up on the receiving end of an antitrust complaint before November. And after this hearing, I wonder of Facebook's gonna get 12 or whether that's going to be something that the election decides. But, yes, I think it adds to the pressure to file actual cases as opposed to talking about it.

How the U.S. Army Lost the War for Twitch
"Wait, the US army has sports teams, and they do. It's kind of weird, but they haven't. Eastwards team called the US Army East sports and they've been around since November, two thousand eighteen. They have been kind of low key, but they have been around the US armed forces have been using E. Sports gaming recruitment platform for years America's Army, a series of video games, developed and published by the US army since two thousand and two, meanwhile in East Sports, the US Air Force sponsored Illeg, and the Austin Major and if you don't remember a uniform air, force sergeant came out to give doodle. doodle the MVP trophies at the Boston Major, but not everyone has been super comfortable with the US armed forces presence in East sports and gaming over the years. There has been criticism of the US Army sports team much like there's criticism of any recruitment material that the US army puts out, and if you don't believe me, just take a look at the response to their initial tweets, many people view the aiming of military recruitment material at younger people as problematic. You've got young impressionable people. Being told that playing a life of video games has somehow prepare them for an actual armed conflict whether you support the existence of a military or not. That doesn't make a lot of sense. That army sports doesn't just promote an unrealistic image of what being in the military is actually like, but they're also targeting their message at people who may not have the skills to be in the army are more receptive to the message because they're playing video games about shooting now. That doesn't mean that everyone is against recruitment just that there are some serious ethical questions about aiming recruiting material at gamers. Gamers, but what happened next is when things really went off the rails for US Army's sports on July first day after that cringe woo, tweet people decided to make a game of speed speechwriting getting banned from the US Army's discord server mostly by linking with article that lists US war crimes and on July eighth sports twitter guy. Rod Slash Breslau shared a video of activists and political consultant Jordan. Going into the US army twitch chat and typing. What's your favorite war crime? Then a link that appear article about US war-crimes before getting ban shortly after cool. Nice really chill guy. Have, a nice time getting banned my dude, the streamer at the time was Joshua's strontium, eight twelve year army veteran, and between his reaction and getting banned, people started to see if they can get on the army's bad side to chat was quickly inundated with more people asking about US war crimes, and quickly getting banned themselves and the US Army wasn't the only branch of the armed forces to get ban happy on twitch all went over to the US news twitch channel, and the whole war crimes stick their two leading to him getting band, and of course more people getting banned for doing it as well, and in the middle of all, this all reported that the US army was posting links. Chat that they said. We're links to give away to win an xbox elite series to controller, and allegedly they actually led to recruitment for them when I reached to the US Army for more information on what happened, and if they were aware that the links, they were sending outlet recruitment forums, they said that the giveaways are in fact real and they've given away ten controllers, setups and chairs over the last year. We have a standard form that is used for all activities, but each action has a marketing code associated with it to ensure this emissions are connected to the correct event or giveaway. The team is exploring options to customize giveaway pages to provide more external clarity KOTOK. Kotok Nathan Grayson reported on July sixteenth that twitch has intervened and forced the US army to remove their giveaway links now I wanNA take a second to say that I think most people who are posting about US war crimes, and getting banned in twitch chat were doing it because they were questioning the morality of recruiting gamers on twitch. I have to imagine that a lot of people getting in on this just want to get in on a big trolling campaign, but many people do feel strongly about this many myself included feel very uncomfortable with the US armed forces, trying to use twitter as an arm to recruit gamers, and some people even feel like these twitch bands. Unconstitutional Warriors Tonight First Amendment, Institute at Columbia University representing Jordan. Wool say that banning him and others from the US Army and navy twitter chats was unconstitutional and a violation of their rights to free speech. The Army and Navy eastwards teams banning of users based on their speech about war crimes as unconstitutional when the government intentionally opens a space to the public at large for expressive activity, it has created a public forum under the First Amendment and cannot constitutionally speakers from that forum based on a viewpoint, these principles apply with full force in the digital spear, including on social media platforms as courts have emphasized in recent cases, basically the US Army and navy twitch channels are a government backed open forum which. Which means a banning US citizens for discussing war-crimes is unconstitutional and violates their right to free speech now when I reach out to the US army, I asked for their comment on the accusation that banning all and others from their twitch channel was unconstitutional, and here's what they told me. The team members did not ban the users because of viewpoints they banned him for behavior intended to harass the great and intimidate which violates the twitch community guidelines. Since the team started on twitch, the had specific chat rules on the page that clearly states harassing behavior will not be tolerated. Those chat rules include not harassing people, not spamming or otherwise disrupting the stream, and not pushing personal agendas quote again with respect to. The US, army sports team social media pages were being spammed with. What's your favorite war-crime memes and questions? The East sports team blocked the term warcrimes in its twitter channel after discovering the trend was meant to troll and harassed the team twitch members used creative spelling to continue related posts, following the guidelines and policies set by the US army eastwards team band users from his account due to concern. Concern over posted content and website links that were considered harassing and degrading nature, and when I reached out to the US Navy, they give me a pretty similar answer. We moderate channel in accordance with our posted channel rules which are available to everyone who chooses to participate in the chat. We strive to allow for maximum freedom of discussion in our chat and seek to only those who break the. The posted rules or engage in personal attacks against our streamers or their family. We have a system whereby offenders given several chances to correct infractions prior to being banned, and our moderators will engage with those who violate the rules to inform them of which channel rules they have broken. This is done in an attempt to to allow for maximum amount of free, civil and open discourse if someone feels. Feels like they have been unfairly man. They have every contact moderator for an explanation and possible unbanning now the warriors of the night. Institute already have a response lined up for that. They say quote Mr. All speech does not constitute harassment under the terms of service which define harassment to mean any content or activities that attempts to intimidate the great abuse or creates a hostile environment for other. Mr Olsen messages drew attention to prior us. Military actions in the context of the army and navy is use of twitch a recruiting tool. His messages were quintessential political speech which lie at the core the First Amendment, so it seems like the US. Army may have really fucked up here. Which is why they're taking a break when I, so they told me the team is reviewing ways to customize its giveaway submission forms and provide more clarity for each of its giveaways. The team has streaming to review internal policies and procedures as well. Well as platform, specific policies to ensure guidelines for participating in this are clear before streaming
"columbia" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Traditional story around the bears, which was kind of interesting, because the lines with some of the science that we've completed, but in traditional stories we have a the raven, or do we recall the Raven in our culture has of the world in also created the Ice Age. started feed. The Raven wanted something to remind himself of the Ice Age housing is flying over. He decided to turn every tenth block, white and stuff on the islands, and those areas would be protected. All Time is home of these ears. Really interesting our traditional story, it says one in ten or wait. Now, our science has basically said that on these islands now one in ten of these bears are white. Interesting. We've got a lot of questions coming in. About about the bears from listeners, online's let me just ask a couple of here. Dana piece great topic. How have these white spirit bears survived in the dark forest without any type of Camouflage Christina? Wonder what you think about that because I wondered that, too. They are so. Vibrant set off from those Dark Greens. Of that temperate rainforest, you one would think that it would actually sort of. That nature would select against this kind of coat. I mean. Maybe it is because they're so rare, but like. Why are there any of them? Yeah, it's a great question because I. Absolutely are very conspicuous in these in these dark green forests, and so there's a few thoughts around that. One is that the primary areas where these bears live Thankfully, thankfully for them. Don't have grizzly bears in these areas so in in areas where black bears and grizzly bears coexists. Blackberries usually get the short end of the stick but because there's no grizzly bears around that sort of one, I guess one point that that works in their favor, so camouflage has maybe less of an issue. If you don't have as many predators around of course, there's there's still wolves. They're another really interesting piece. Was Actually looked at by Dr Dr. Tom Rankin or the University of Victoria a couple years ago, that sort of flip that idea on its head, and said Yes, maybe two to our is a spirit, bears are really obvious conspicuous in the in this landscape, but the fish which are the salmon, the most important food resource for these bears. Maybe it's actually the opposite, and so what he some work he did. basically identified. Is that if you're a salmon and you're in a a creek in you're looking up at A. In our part of the world, mostly dark grey overcast skies there's actually less of a contrast with the white bear, then a black bear, and so from a food food perspective that these bears actually may be have a an advantage released during the daytime of able to get closer to fish and basically trick them. A little bit more are less obvious as a silhouette. So, it's like the signed version of why. Some, some marine animals are darker on top and lighter on the bottom of. Exactly. That that's really interesting. I mean but. All scientific theories they. The? They are the proven or disproven by bodies of research to take years and years and years to put together, but I am curious, though like that theory sounds really interesting, but on the other hand we're we're. We're having this conversation. Because the variant is so is actually so very rare, so doug let me just D. Do you buy the idea that it's just harder for the salmon to see the spirit bear when they're looking up at the sky? Actually worked with some of the researchers when they're doing this study. And they tried all different things like wearing white gumboots versus block gumboots when they were block come in the river, the salmon. WOULD DEVELOP A. Wide Path around it and swim around the means or the white boots Osama bin, almost swimming rate into the boots and so on. And, so they put barrels of the river and I. I worked with one researcher for four years on the project, and that was pretty interesting results. That's fascinating. Okay, so let me talk back to one thing, so this is this is a. Study based on the genetic material that you collected. Through? The process is that you just described. And, have you tagged or colored any of the bears at all? Because I'm wondering how much we know about where they go where they spend their time. Or is that being accomplished by tracking? I would say no. We haven't called any. There's we've asked you deliberately. Stay away from that because a lot of evidence that that suggests that it it can have negative impacts, bears and meeting behavior. So we try to avoid that and so. Now? Yeah it's pretty easy to track these bears. If you're walking through the forest, and you are walking on a bear trail, you can look at the branches and they'll they'll leave. That'll tough suhair. Sometimes. There's bear rubbing trees. Were you to leave up? As a stall trail that leads up to a ban Rub tree and you can look at the I can tell exactly what color is on that tree. It could be a black bear, fear bear, or could be a grisly bear so we get a lot of information than others. Just looking for tracks and was a number of ways. I think you can track the bears. Okay, so so so Christina that people don't researchers. Don't see the need to to put a put a caller on any of these bears right now. Yeah. It's a bit of a trade off rate so a Doug said there's some some concerns over impacts of of Coleraine, and that's why the the partners for this project have have steered clear of that, but also from a data standpoint for example for this study, we were able to look at the genetics of three hundred eighty, five different black bears, and so if you essentially invest really heavily in a couple bears because colorings and tranquilizing, and and that processes is far more expensive. You get really detailed information far fewer individuals, so it's a bit of a trade often for this study because it's at a Atlanta. Gail We opted basically to have this. The sort of broad stroke view another sort of advantage that we have going for us is that there's been strong investment in this project for for many years and so it would essentially, even though we only get sort of a snapshot in time where that barrier is for many of these bears. We've been tracking them for you know eight eight years so we have a pretty good sense of of of the sampling sites in our area through using year after year, and that can give us some sense of it's. It's definitely more crude than callers, but some sense of things like home range size. I see now I. Want to go back to something that you just said a couple of minutes ago. Christina about the fact that perhaps the A. Greater threats to the to the black bear population. Overall there would be grizzlies. But, I think you said that. Grizzlies aren't really on the islands where the spirit bears live, but you also wrote a paper that says that like are changing. Climate is also changing wear the grizzlies are. Are they moving into the areas of the forest where the spirit mayors are? Yeah exactly so I made earlier was sort of blanket statement of maybe what Hell Yeah these bears exist. Up into present time. Some really surprising work that we did in in twenty fourteen actually looked at in these areas. essentially grizzly bears are found from this from the tarrant study. At wrote cameras where they're not supposed to be so in our part of the world Grizzly bears. Are generally found on sort of these big mainland fjord systems that you know you can probably imagine from sort of the postcard image of these these big estuaries and embarrassed fishing for for salmon and his release sort of big big landscapes but increasingly during the study we. We kept fighting grizzly. Bears actually on these these islands, which up until recently have been sort of the the turf of the domain of a black in spirit, bears and so we don't know too, because we don't know what's what's driving that movement of these grizzly bears moving west onto these islands. and. We're still monitoring what that exact impact is going to be but we do know it in general that Grizzly bears essentially give. A pretty hard time so in some of the systems that we know for example or river systems that used to be spots where you could see Spielberg, in black bears We've now had grizzly bear. families essentially move move into those areas, and so one of the things we're trying to learn as. Did those. And Black Bears move out of those systems entirely or through a work with remote cameras, are they? You know maybe actually just coming out at night or sort of being more sneaky, essentially, because grizzly bears around now and so That's sort of one of the ongoing questions were to look at. This hour we are learning all we can. About the spirit bear. It's a rare genetic variant of the black bear that lives in temperate rainforests of British, Columbia Christina Service joins us. She's science, coordinator and.

"From NPR WB WBU ARE BOSTON. Chalker, Bardy and this is on point, a black bear with a shimmering white coat. It's called the spirit bear, one of the rarest and most elusive animals on the planet. There could be as few as fifty to one hundred fifty of these bears on planet earth, and they're only found in a tiny portion of the coastal temperate rainforests of British Columbia an area aptly named the great bear rainforest well. Well a new study led by researchers and members of the kid who hey and get first nations found that the gene that causes the color variation in these bears, maybe even more rare than previously believed so this hour on point we're going to hear the story of the spirit, bear and efforts to protect and preserve not only this remarkable animal, but the ecosystem and the people that surrounded as well. Joining us today. IS DOUG NIECE LOSS? He's director of the kid. Assu Hey. Hey, first nation stewardship authority. He's also former chief councillor of the kid, Assu, Hey hey, first nation and author of the recent study, spatial patterns and rarity of the white phased spirit bear. Lille revealed gaps in habitat protection. The paper was published this month in the Journal. Ecological solutions and evidence, and he joins us from. Clemson British Columbia. Doug niece loss welcome to the program. And also with us from Cumberland British. Columbia Canada is Christina Service Science Coordinator and Wildlife Biologist for the kid is sue. Hey, first nation stewardship authority. She's also co author of that study. I just referenced Christina Welcome to you. Thanks for having me. So, I'd like to actually start with. giving. Listeners a little taste of what this magnificent forest. That these bears live in is act is like now. There's a fantastic documentary. Is both of you obviously well? No called the great bear rainforest land of the spirit bear. It was released last year and directed by Ian mcallister for McGill Freeman films. and. They follow the work that's being done to study and preserve the spirit bear, so let's first of all listen to how in the documentary. The temperate rainforests of western Canada are described. The great bear rainforest is the largest and most intact coastal temperate rainforest laughed on. This place contains more life by wait a tropical rainforest like the Amazon. Some of the largest trees here are more than thousand years old. Actor Ryan Reynolds providing the voice over for the documentary, great bear rainforest. Doug! Can you describe to us what this place is like? I would say This place is a magical place I mean this is one of the only places left. You'll get old growth in ancient growth forests. A, large biodiversity wildlife. There The some of these trees can be quite a few meters wide and. Up to two to three hundred meters tall, so you can get some really veterans of their. Wow and Christina your thoughts. How how rare is temperate rainforests there? Yeah, it's remarkably rare. I mean I think often When people say rainforest, you think as of the Amazon and the tropics but Temperate rainforest are just as magical There's so much diversity so many Shades of green, then you could, then you could even imagine with likened and is an an as Doug mentioned these join Norma's old cedars sickest Bruce's Yeah, the the forest to something that Yeah, I'd give. Everyone should should witness at some point in their life. I would agree I mean just the idea of these. Trees. That are a couple of hundred meters tall. I think as you said and also. We should underscore. It's a coastal. Temperate rainforests. It's a really really interesting. Ecosystem and in this magical place. There is this animal that has this brilliant white coat. The gray rainforest documentary Doug just full disclosure I've seen it four times and the first time I saw it. My Josh has dropped I. Mean like literally dropped could not believe what I was seeing. When the first images of of the spirit bear, we're on the. Screen in front of me. When did you first? When did you first see this animal? Who I saw this in the early two thousands plus my first time. And I remember I was actually just started up tourism operation and One of my first job is the guy was working with Look for the Spielberg. While we had a bunch of guests.

"Simple but delicious. Menu are mainstays our air. We make ourselves in house and so we have the donor. We have a bunch of grilled sandwiches and like a Stir Fry Buddha bowl and pretzel and beer cheese. It's all really good stuff like butcher. Quality meats bakery breads you know. Local really local produce three. Yeah it's great. I want to say that we do have Vegan and gluten free options so that was something that as we were opening people on Social Media and friends. Were telling us we needed to do all this stuff. You know. Everybody is full of all this advice in your life. Don't like like stop like I need to plan the business and we thought that people were. I didn't believe that we would have as many vegetarian. People are vegans or people need to free and so. I'm really glad that we did. Listen to a few of those people So we do have those options now and it turns out. It's quite important to have Both arm UNITARIANS. So is one of those things where I was like. Nobody will want a Vegan Sandwich. Well it turns out they do so. I think that's good to know now. Yeah yeah yeah totally and then so like the Patios like not concerned percents done yet. But how? How many people can you get up there? And they're going to be any attractions in the summer. That you're doing there. Yeah so we have a capacity of one hundred and twenty four on the rooftop patio. We currently have seating for fifty sixty. We have kind of integrated some benches around the outside and we have a bunch of picnic tables under cover. It's about forty percent covered in heated. And we're in the process of building seating for another about forty people so we should comfortably seep our capacity of one hundred and twenty four. Whether or not we allow it to get to that and are able to serve enough beer and food for that many people comfortably is yet to be determined and I should note. There is a downstairs bar in an upstairs bar. So you don't have to keep going up and down up and down the yeah. It's it was really. The focus of our project was building that rooftop patio and we almost well. We definitely put far more into building the patio than we did. The interior of the building right so the interior is kind of utilitarian and the patio is like very nicely finished. Rustic finished with style We have a bar with the same twelve tops as we do in the taproom. We have two bathrooms. We have provisions for live music. Which is going to be staple of the summertime and it's just going to be great in the sunset is like right on your patio twos. Yeah the sunset's directly in front of us and we have a view of the Albany Valley and the inlet. That is absolutely stunning. Yes yes it is so if somebody was to come here and visit a would be the experience you want them to leave with like that idea stuck in their mind. That's kind of hard to say we've had a lot of people come through and the come in the tasting room and they it's full and their little disappointed and then once we say oh well there's room on the patio and everybody is very surprised and they go up there and nowhere to lie. Everybody is amazed they walk around that corner from the stairs and they see the cover and the the lighting and the tables and we really. We really hit that the park I think and so for us like I want people to come here and you know frankly. Maybe some low expectations the you know. It's doesn't look extraordinary down here. You know our draft tower is pretty cool here. It's a very creative too. But then I want them to be to leave amazed upstairs going to be like what and then you know then they get table service. So that's a different thing we have to. We really are focused on. Customer service up there Not Standing at the bar waiting for your drinks and things like that like sit down. Get comfortable view. We'll bring you beer and I want them to leave surprise to be like they never expected this because there's nothing else like it here. There's not very many places like that. Like specifically our patio on the island and we really tried to be different and we want people to leave remembering that and thinking that cool and if somebody was wanting to open up career themselves So you can give. I would say find a community that you know is going to embrace you and maybe doesn't have a lot of in it already and choose a spot that is in the worst location that you can find so that you get a good deal on your real estate and try to buy the building that has been. Kinda that footing of our business. It's allowed us to have more stable and favorable loans. It's GonNa build you wealth over the long term and it's just a better investment than making some landlord rich in downtown Vancouver Rahman so as a yeast specialist Yemeni special strains back there that you haven't used yet or any particular use that you're going to work in the mix here. Well I don't know I would. I would just say that. We're very lucky that we were able to modify some recipes that we had already been. You know home. Brewing attest batching and use a lot of the new Norwegian strains that are out there. It's hard for breweries that are already established possibly tasting rooms haven't been around. Like the lounges. For a very long time. And they're all stuck doing a lot of production so they can't just change their recipe and use a use. That is makes your beer into glass five days right. So we're doing a lot of work with different exchange strains really having a lot of fun with that but other than that not really a. There's nothing really weird back. There were staying away from things. Like pretend to macy's we try to have a lot of very clean sessional Beers low alcohol and God forbid we did get an infection. It's just not. We're not interested in doing that as a very tiny space. It'd be rampant quick. Eric we have a very strict cleaning protocol. You side. It's tight back there. You got to keep things clean and Organiz so all right. Well thank you very much for your time. Really appreciate it and definitely GonNa come back when the PATIOS completely finished. Yeah and really enjoy that. But I mean I'm going to enjoy it now in the sunshine. I mean it'd be ridiculous I ran away so awesome right. Thank you thanks for coming. Thanks to Andy and Robin for their time really appreciate it was a beautiful day there and that was such an awesome patio. I cannot wait to go back and see that patio fully done and being able to enjoy the view and just look down the valley with some really nice beer and Something from their awesome kitchen as well really looking forward to going back and visiting both twin city and dog mountain brewing.

Okay word you don't remember but she was really downplaying it and saying it wasn't that cooler wasn't that she wasn't taking cheesy but it was like kind of like that and we went and we just got this debt apartment that was like on the lake that just overlook the lake. And you're on the lake and there's a beach right there and then you look at the mountains and we just sat there for four days straight just cooking hanging out drinking beer making mixed drinks going down to the beach laying on the sand going to get ice cream and I remember thinking. Oh my gosh. This is paradise right here. Yeah there was a new brewery that opened up donated launched were good. There is like a soft opening for friends and family but I walked by three times and probably like it wasn't open if we will walk by again our last day there and they're like oh well wherever like soft opening for friends and family. Why don't you come in like they want to be featured on the podcast? Now we we got him for free so yes so.

Yeah box of beer bottled beer bottle on. So you guys go. Yeah that is our best of for British Columbia really hard. I mean as we're thinking I had multiple more stories coming up so we might have to do a longer form destination diary on or even Victoria. We ever done one on occur which in itself I know we touched on it a little bit had that city. I would move to Victoria heartbe. Yeah we love it there so much and our friends corden. Kim who used to live in Vancouver moved to Victoria for about two and a half years in real estate prices. Well Yeah it's a little expensive but it's great great city. Yeah that's our Corinthian diary on British Columbia. We will be putting these out every Monday Wednesday Friday until we either run out of material which you know. We're twenty four minutes and we got the compressor probably not run out interior or maybe the quarantine ends. Who knows when that's going to happen? But we putting these out on the podcast feed as well unedited like like you've been listening to an also an ATV so if you are a podcast listener and you wanna come see our faces a little bit or engage with us in a little bit different of a manor head on over to TV extra packing peanuts.

"We know that these are crazy. Unprecedented Times and there's a lot of confusion and there's a lot of uncertainty but we also know that these times are presenting an unparalleled opportunity for each and every one of us you see because there are three things we know for sure one is that during the quarantine time will pass to that the quarantine will end and we don't know when it will end but we do know that it'll end and the third thing we know for sure is that at the end of the quarantine. You can come out either better than the situation. You're in before where you can come out in the exact same spot. So if you're someone who's been singing said I've always dreamed of building location independent lifestyle but I've never been able to know what steps to take. I've never been able to get momentum. We're doing something absolutely crazy. We have fast track this and we are putting out our lifestyle launch academy three months early. This was originally supposed to launch in July. But we've been working around the clock with the team the last month since we knew that. We're going to start self isolating and being quarantined and not being able to go outside. We said people need this. This is an opportunity for some people to say. I want to take this time to really take steps forward and building a location independent lifestyle that I haven't been able to build before and so we worked around the clock to get out to you three months early. You can check it out by going to extra pack of peanuts DOT COM Slash Academy. It's extra pack of peanut DOT COM Slash Academy. But you can only sign up into Friday and after that we close the doors and we start our eight week program with everyone has joined the academy so an eight weeks you come out on the other side and say I finally have a concrete intentional actionable plan to help me build a location independent lifestyle so if you want that check it out extra packing peanuts dot com slash academy. We couldn't be more excited for the people who are joining and to get rocking and rolling with all of you and make this crazy. Time of being quarantined.

Check it out extra pack of peanuts DOT COM Slash Academy has low travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel. Podcast we are coming at you today from our e Pop H. Q. The show that teaches you how to travel more. Well spend less except for staying at home. So we're here to give you a little bit of inspiration today. Talking about one of our favorite places and the place that has the brewery of which which travis sporting the hat from this brewery. So heather hates this hat. I don't know why I love it. she hates it. But we're going to British Columbia today with you and this hat is from a story in British Columbia right outside of Whistler Coast mountain represent so I figured she said tribe. Your hair looks awful. Go put on a hat. So this is what I hate that. Trav- your hair looks awful. Go put on ABC. Wait a minute make us on her. Might just relaying. What happened five minutes before play guy either way quarantines getting us? It's getting a lot of time spent together and you know we somewhat too much time. We're used to spending a lot of time together but court excuse me. Quarantine is a little bit of a different animal. I do not hate the hat. I hate this. You literally said I hate this head a little too flat for me but anyway regardless British Columbia and we love the breweries in British Columbia. Yes today this is part of our quarantine. Diaries session so you can watch us on. If you're watching it then you get to see that if you're listening on the podcast and you do want to see our faces our situation and see what had a might wear for the next one. You can go do our instagram at extra packing peanuts and check it out there. So these are shorter. Form unedited podcast. That we're putting in addition to a regular Tuesday longer form podcasts. So that you have more wanderlust more travel love in your ears during the quarantines as we all go a little bit stir quarantine that's like during the quarantine it is now. I think a proper now. I think it should be Catholic. Quarantine entreprenuering quarantine and so what we've been doing recently and what we're going to do today is our best of series and this is where we pick a destination today. British Columbia Heather has a few card down there. She mixes them up and then she asked us and we don't prep for this at all. What our best memories of this specific places so today. We're doing a whole province and it's GonNa be hard because we spent a lot of time in British Columbia and we've gone all around British Columbia. Obviously we spend a ton of time in Victoria. Think Hoover Islands part of British Columbia? Spending time in Vancouver. We've been up to whistler. We'd been out to the Okinawa Gin. So it's going to be hard to pick somewhere places but hey that's what happens. That's the tough job of being travel. Podcast SO WE HAVE DESTINATION. Diaries and we have one. I'm pretty sure on Vancouver so we don't have one. I think on the whole of British Columbia. So you'll be getting some new content here with this little mini series. And I guess we should just jump right in. Let's do it okay. The first card is oh how appropriate best during so. I've been thinking a lot about this. And she told me redoing British Columbia literary four minutes ago and there have been a lot of places that we've drank at Including Vancouver we one time. We're in Vancouver for twenty one days and I did twenty one breweries and twenty days and I was pregnant so I did zero breweries. I mean I went to them but yeah so and we've spent a lot of time in Victoria. And some great wineries out in the Okinawan and all but for me. I think it will come back to a beer. Coast Mountain honorable mention and because of the hat. Awesome little brewery up in squamish tackling games. Garmisch just south of whistler fun little place cool like everything wanting to bury small little joint. That heather actually stayed in the car because again. I think you're pregnant at that point and she took a nap. I just went in and had a little flight by myself. You know really neat. People could be the coast from the brewery. No but it's called coast to Coast Mountain. Which is also a weird name. My name like it's just a weird. You're just taking two words and putting them together but it works and I love the hat and I'd like to branding but my number one favorite. So it's not honorable mention. Okay right you told me that we could go longer than fifteen minutes. Because now we have a compressor so we can put it on. Igt No if you read our post from last week. But I had the hardest time trying to get our videos out because if you video over fifteen minutes you have to do it from your granddaughter and it has to be an MP anyway. It was a whole long saga. But I bought the software. Because what does one do? I mean we needed. We needed to get the videos to you. We needed to get the videos. You so then Heather told. I said we are GONNA be fifty minutes is going to be hard for British Columbia said. Oh no no we got we got the compressor we can do want so. My overall favorite drink is strathcona brewing in Vancouver for two reasons. One Strathcona brewing itself has really good beer. Super Cool brewery really hipster in in like a gentrifying neighborhood for sure but they also at the time we were there and I'm not sure if the guy still does this but there is a gypsy. Burr call who runs a Burri called superfly. Meaning he doesn't have his own brewery brews at Strathcona and comes up and bruised. They're apparently lives in a van. No joke down by a river and then comes up to strathcona debris here and there and this was two years ago so things could have could have changed this super flex beer is awesome so they sell super flex at Strathcona brewing and their beers incredible and then bring has their own beer and their beer is really good too so those my if you want the best drink we've had in British Columbia head to Strathcona brewing. Try and try to get your hands on superfly which you can get in grocery stores and convenience stores to I would second that I love Strathcona brewery also the inside like have said is very cool and hip and they have really good pizzas and I think some ninth grade. Happy hours like half price pitchers of beer so we were getting awesome. Craft Beer for price of course light pitchers that got a little messy making artisan pizzas. So I mean. It's a win win. However I do want to shout out to another brewery. That was my first love in Vancouver as well. As Courtney or Frank Courtney who lived lived in Vancouver at the time and that is thirty three acres this brewery. I feel like it was kind of the first real history brewery. It's beautiful inside it's minimal. They do a lot of different kinds of beer so well. We tend to like the more juicy beers they they have a whole range. So that's kind of why we like Shrek Kona better because they had more of the juicy beers but thirty three acres definitely hold a special place in my heart. I didn't even go for all right. I know I mean there's too many we really in this case because it's some countries traffic as well. I don't even know if I could pick US hard in some countries for us not in Vancouver because we spent so much time there and they have so many breweries they have a wonderful wine region and they have good coffee shops. So honestly we could. We could really do one of each but we got the compressor. But we're not gonNA let all right best activity. Oh boy this is too hard or you're going to have to do it. I mean you. You're the one who made these rules. Best activity in British Columbia overall. I know what you're going to say. Okay then tell me you're gonNA say biking no. I surprised really. I love biking around Victoria or Vancouver and Victoria actually are both awesome cities to bike around. No my best activity is road tripping through interior of B. C. So we've done it twice one time we're coming all the way from Edmonton going across Canada and we are heading west and we took if you ever have a chance and you're going don't take the five take the wrong way the quote unquote wrong way which we did and take five a absolutely gorgeous gorgeous scenery some of the best driving we've ever done in our life anywhere in the through the interior BC. It's really beautiful than we did that. Coming in reverse one time. We went out to the Okinawan from Vancouver. So we went out to Colona Colona and we you know again. Amazing Dr Sue. These like you're just going through these mountains and hills and then there's lakes down there and you didn't even live here. Who owns us? I just want to like put up a tent camp here for the rest of my life so yeah road tripping through the Interior of B. C. Yeah it's so beautiful. Bc is one of my favorite places in the world. We go almost every year and I don't know if we'll get there this year. I'm hoping that we can maybe towards the end of summer or something but yeah definitely road tripping and being in Colona was such a different experience for us because we always go to the island or we spent time in Super Island over island. We usually spend time with the island. Oh it's not very tropical but it is an Hawaii of Canada. They call it. We're like man if this is your Hawaii Times or tough up here in the great white north. But I'm thinking my one of my favorite memories is on the activity memories. Sorry I'm actively. Oh Gosh coffee. Sorry the best activity I would say is doing the wineries in Colona because I love wine and when I was pregnant with it you know I really wanted to have beer and after I had him I kind of went on a beer crazy kick but when he was I think he was eight months old. By the time we went to clone. And I hadn't really been drinking wine yet and we just went to all these Weiner's and I was like yeah. I really love wine more than beer. So kind of reinvigorated my love of wine and going to wineries and it's beautiful up there because you have the lake and you have all the wineries around it and your loan. A very underrated. One of our favorite trips of twenty eight T. I guess it was. That was spending time in Colona four magical relaxing days during the summer right. Sorry for messing up on the card there..

Jose a part time here as well as a server on the patio inside in the dining hall that stuff and then slowly decided. I wanted to work my way. Just fulltime into the back end all right cool and so. How long have you been the head? Brewer then took over as head brew here in May So previously I was here for about two and a half years under Daniel Murphy. Who had been here for seven or eight years and then previous to him was sean who everybody knows. Owns owns of his Hungary so Daniela didn't look like he was gonNA leave. So I actually went over. Twelve Oaks Berea over and sandwich for about eight months and I was heading up head brewer there and then the opportunity sewed up to for me to come back here and take over operations here which I just couldn't pass up. It was an opportunity of like them. All right cool and so it's a massive space. I mean generally speaking normal nights. I mean you're somewhat you know full reasonable comfortable crowds by what what kind of styles do a beers do you produce to fit in with that crowd that comes here to enjoy your? Your philosophy is praising Beers at our Fresh don't don't bog you down too much I like to live a fit west lifestyle. I'm out hiking running. I'm I'm working out. I don't want to be hung over the next day I want. I won't even be have a beer after work and then get home. And maybe gopher runners coming So I like Lower Alcohol Refreshing Bright Beers though but lots of vibrancy to them lots of flavor. And that's my kind of take on it. We we produce a vast array of Beers we have from Hellas to a wit beer and then we have an ip a All the way to a ball quarter wintertime. So I don't think we really hone in on one region specific but because of the people coming into a brew pub we've learned over the years Kind of looking for a lot of people from Seattle and Portland All across Canada. Lots of tourists is our kind of our big Jam. Here she patio outside and Kinda cater to them. What are they gonna be ordering and also trying to create some fun beers in the summer This summer I did some some colorful beers at a purple Blueberry Beer I did a a peaked I Kettle Sour here today. Boys and Barry Kettle. Sorry it was really cool pink color just having fun in the summer to to really shines on the patio right and and do you have any cat. Scans at all that you work with. No casque engines. No are setup is We don't have a seller that's chilled at all So unlike spinnakers they have all their setup over there. We literally just have those seven break tanks. That are all hooked up to the tops. We have three different bars that we bore from to help with alleviating distress of the servers and allowing them to really Give exceptional service to the guests but Yes I'm stuck with the seven break tanks for the moments working on maybe increasing our bod tank volume or tank fascinating and then. Hopefully we'll be able to offer more Smart options to dance like how. How much of an expansion are you talking I would love to do like so if we have seven break. Thanks now I'd love to do like six or seven half of those size so we're turning over the options that are in them a little more frequently but It also gives us maybe six or seven new lines on the draft lines. I'm in conversation with Kyle York of Canoe Brew Pub. I just want to thank the BC. L..
