E-Eggs Track Turtle Traffickers

"Take note. If you're thinking about stealing eggs from the nests of sea turtles on the beaches of costa rica. well you may wind up getting more than you bargained for because researchers have combined. Gps technology with three d. printing produce. Decoy eggs that look and feel like real turtle eggs but can track where traffickers go when they swipe these endangered embryos the egg saving efforts are mapped out in the journal. Current biology some finds sea turtle eggs to be a delicious seasonal treat. Others think they're an aphrodisiac. Which has produced a thriving illegal market the mock turtle eggs were crafted in response to something called the wildlife crime tech challenge a program sponsored by the us agency for international development. Scientists led by kim williams kyanne of paso pacifico conservation organization device the decoys. They drew their inspiration in part from popular tv. Show says paso pacific executive director. Sarah ostrom kim's idea to put a tracking device into the league came from an episode of breaking bad where the police hit a. Gps transmitter in a shipment of raw materials for methamphetamine lab. The first challenge was getting the eggs substitute just right. We started with the size and dimensions of the turtle. Egg trying to figure out. How much do they weigh. What's their texture. How often squishy are they. What's their color then. The sorted out the electronics cell phones very widespread throughout the world. And we realized that if we could just use a sim card and a gps gsm technology. That's used in cell phones that even if a beach was remote from a cell tower if it was headed to a market somewhere would eventually pass by a cell tower. And the decoy aches could transmit to one of these cell towers. Finally it was time for a field test. I was actually the person who put the eggs in the nests. Helen physi- of the university of kent. And so it was really a case of deploying decoys into the nests and seeing if they Happens when they as you get. Taken fiji planted a decoy egg. In one hundred one. Sea turtle nests on four costa rican beaches about a quarter of the decoys got snatched some malfunctioned but others gave trackable signal. One wound up at a bar about a mile away but another traveled an impressive eighty five miles from its nest. Physique kept an eye on its progress from her cell phone and basically was moving further and further inland And eventually it. Stop so zoomed in on on the like google maps basically and it showed me very very clearly that it gone behind a supermarket like some sort of akali seep market loading by kind of area which was pretty suspicious is now really re not reason to really be there unless you unless you're up to up tonight good. The decoy hung around the loading dock for a time before making its way to a nearby residential property the fact that it spent two days in so waiting suggests that it may been handed over to a trafficker who sold it to someone else perhaps even the consumer that really fits we what we know about the illegal trade of xing. Costa rica reunited fanatic. Total information from interview information that exists old door to door and it seems likely that this is what's happened so yeah. We're very happy with that result. We've we've proved the concept that you can actually use these x. fee says. She hopes the decoys which they've dubbed. The investigators can help to really crack down on the illegal poaching of sea turtle eggs and reduce such operations to shell of their former selves.

Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?

"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

Travel to Costa Rica

"To the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen before we get into this week's episode. I do want to say something about the corona virus epidemic. Which is what's going on as I record this. I also put this in the amateur traveler facebook group but I know that. Not all of your in there. I want you to know what my plan is. So many of you I am sheltering in place and I am not traveling because it's the right thing to do these days but I won't be blogging and podcasting about coveted Nineteen Ama- traveler. I'm not a medical expert. You don't need my opinion. We did do one episode of this week and travel. Because it's news but that's really all I'm going to do about this and I'm really of the opinion that this will get better. I don't know how long but sometime we will get back to work. And things will return to normal and travel will return to normal whatever normal looks like and so. I'm going to be looking ahead. I'm going to be helping you dream of better days. I know for some of you. That's not what you're looking for now. If you unsubscribe because this isn't the right time for you to be thinking about travel no problem. I understand but that's what we're going to be doing here and I just didn't want to catch you by surprise it's not that I'm totally clueless about what's going on that being said. Let's talk about Costa Rica. I'd like to welcome the show. Sam and Jason. From my ten feet dot com who've come talk to us about Costa Rica Salmon and Jason. Welcome to the show. Hello Chris Thank you for having us and Salmon Jason our friends. I think we met in Philippines on a press trip. I WANNA say ten years ago so I don't remember exactly when we met the first time but someone actually pitched me doing Costa Rica but two of the bloggers that I know. Who are the experts on? Costa Rica Are Salmon? Jason and they make a living basically from this and from helping people figure out what to do in Costa Rica's so let's start with the obvious. Why should someone go to Costa Rica? Costa Rica offers a lot of things to do for people who want to experience nature because Costa Rica's known as a very ECO friendly sustainable destination. It's very green country in every sense of that word yes exactly. They protect over twenty five percent of their land actually in so for anyone who wants to experience nature whether they love I watching or hiking or even a beach vacation to see a volcano experienced rainforest particularly has got it all in that sense and when it comes to countries in Central America Latin America is very safe. It's very popular for travelers in the US in now more in Europe and they're very friendly people in they're very welcoming so Costa Rica's even a destination for people who have never been outside traveled internationally because of the excellent. And what kind of are you going to recommend for someone who let's say it's their first time in Costa Rica? I most people they land in San Jose. International Airport in this is because this is the biggest international airport so they have more flights schedules. And then for the first time itinerary something I would really recommend is and then you go to Fortuna I in La. Fortuna is a city what they call northern lowlands and it is home to the. Arina volcano very close to lake are now which is the biggest man-made Lake in Costa Rica and also a lot of rainforest around and so a lot for tonight is known as the adventure capital of Costa. And you can do pretty much all the adventures you could once. They're so whitewater rafting canyoning zip-lining very popular hiking because of the rainforest is nature. There's a lot of wildlife can see a lot of birds monkeys and floss and it's a very good destination for families or for Solo travelers. Because you find everything from ten dollars. Abed a night till eight hundred dollars a night so you have super budget to the super luxury. We'll I in. This is what we did when we were in Costa Rica. The first time you didn't stop us in San Jose to do anything and that is pretty typical for Costa Rican itineraries. Well craze the reason why well Waco streak is. We don't do that well. Actually the government is trying to make the capital Prettier Bad the truth is that the traffic is terrible. Whenever you work the tourism industry you don't one on a generic going through San Jose because traffic jams are getting very bad. I believe that every single city on the world is having this problem so ideas or packages that you find like San Jose jewel probably stay one or two nights and then you might see one or two activities on the whole day and I will say the main reason is the traffic well and I was not surprised that you did not suggest that but I did want to point it out because somebody may be looking at an itinerary that somebody else creates for them and I wanted them to know the difference. Well now that you mentioned that this is actually something that I have noticed. Recently especially with people from Mexico. We got a lot of direct flights from Mexico in a notice that a lot of Mexicans in some sense they liked to stay in San Jose and they do a lot of one day. Trips is a lot of time on the buzz things that I don't actually recommend by opinion is a waste of time. I mean if you WANNA go to a game is not fun to spend four hours in the boss three hours and then go back for our sped. Believe it or not. This is a new thing we saw last year so meant that I was with a lot of people asking in. Actually we work with companies that do one day tours and many people they liked to be in bosses nowadays. I don't know whoever's listening to this podcast if you love to stay in a positive things house in one day trips but we don't recommend you to do that. The only things that I can think of that are close enough that I would do that. As there's a couple of the coffee plantations that I think are close and the river rafting in that area is fairly close to center. Say but I can't think of anything else that I really would want to see in Costa Rica. That San Jose would be where I would base myself. I think it's a lot of people they come to Experienced two major because it doesn't really sell itself it city city life economic in the city. They do have some nice cultural sites. They have a national theatre. They have a few really nice museums. But it's so small. It's not a big city so honestly see the city in a day and you can go to the neighborhood. That has a lot of good restaurants. You can get really good feel for in just one day and you don't need more than that really as if you were in New York City Madrid or not as much to do which I think is part of the reason why a lot of Timorese. Un in San Jose many sleeve. Right away yeah. I don't think I've been in San Jose. Costa Rica twice. So yeah so unless if you are dying like really really keen on experiencing city life you really don't have much time and something to mention Kristie. You mentioned the Quad River. Which is the most popular Whitewater rafting? The we have here in Costa Rica. A lot of people what they do is they take that tour as a way of transportation so for example. If you're planning to go to La Fortuna or you're planning to three Korean site so he's very very very common people book the Touri- Apple say but they ask to be drop off either for tuna or decree inside or they can bring you back to say but that will save you now your dad with many other attractions if you go to well. In this case the EPA quad as is closer Korean site. So from that location you can go through two different locations so the Costa Rican tourism industry. They know that so. What they do is is that it's transferred tour with four or five hours activities. Very bubbler any works very well here. Sure can do. The two are from laugher tuna or the Caribbean works. Both ways so very much like you can take a whole day for instead of traveling traveling in rafting

Where is AI Heading? Interview with Nick Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, Wired

"Hello and welcome to the AI today. Podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. Our guest today is Nick Thompson. Who is the editor in chief at? I nick thanks so much for joining us on AI. Today Oh thank you so much delighted to be here. Yeah welcome neck and thank you so much for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at wired I Journalists and journalists since I stopped street musician. I'm in my early twenties and prior to wired I worked at the New Yorker around the digital side and then I came over and became the editor in chief of wired. I started the same week. Is DONALD TRUMP? So it's relatively easy to track them. How Long. I've had this job in about three years now. Two years in a month and my role is to assign stories at stories figure out the direction of wired on the HR office figure out our business model view with ethical questions involving sponsored content. And every now and then go on. Cool podcast talk about things. We care a lot about like artificial intelligence. Well great well thanks. We drill to heavier. Because I think you know part of the reason why we have you on our podcast. Is You have an interesting perspective. You obviously hearing from the industry and hearing from pundits and you're hearing of course from what end users are talking about but also a governments are doing have interesting perspective. That may be many others. Don't have on what's happening for artificial intelligence and so as you may see is impacting every industry. It's impacting all sorts of corners of our ecosystem. So how have you seen a evolving over the past few years and for your audience? How have you seen your audience of all in its understanding and interaction with artificial intelligence? It's interesting you know. The debate over a I has conversation. Area has changed and all kinds of wonderful ways since I started this job and started really digging into it. You know three years ago. Four years ago the public conversation over a I was much more about super intelligence and much. More bowed concerns about runaway TAC. Much more caught up in the hype over the last couple of years. We've narrowed and deepened understanding back to now. It's much more about okay. What former they I is going to be. The MOST IS GONNA BE MACHINE. Learning as far as we can see are going to go beyond machine. Learning let's talk about the ethical debates but let's not talk about them in the superficial ways. We really talked about them a year or two ago. Just talk about him and more complex nuanced ways much talk about where is actually being used successfully where it's not. I've talked about it's real limitations. Too I feel like part of my own. Understanding of the issue has deepened in profound ways. Over the last three years editing stories about hey right but I also think that the reader wired have become much more educated on the topic much more interested in it and much more involved than ever increasingly interesting debates about all things related to I. It's interesting that you say that because we've seen a lot of the use cases that we talk about and with our clients as well. We say you know this would be a great application. They're very mundane back office processes things like that and people are like. Oh yeah well. That's kind of a boring use case and we're like yes but it's an incredibly useful one and you should probably start with it and it's going to save a lot of money and time so it's interesting you know you've been seeing that as well where we've gone from this talk about artificial general intelligence is very you know super ristic science fiction view in some sense of Ai. To how can we use it now in every day? So we've talked about how. Ai Is impacting just about every industry including journalism as well. So how do you see? Changing journalism in the coming years and what ethical considerations should be discussed and put in place around this? Yeah I mean I I just want to completely agree with your statement or one of the companies. I read about a lot of facebook. And you know when I started people like Oh my God. Facebook IS USING AI. To create language that will displace humanity. And now hey is basically like a really useful tool for getting porn off facebook right. It's much simpler row tasks that are much better accomplished with assistance. Humans journalism question every profession is going to be changed in interesting ways. Biracial right because professional events systems using. I will be able to do things that we used to have. Humans do so when I think about journalism. What are the things that we do now? That machines can do better from a reporting process. I think that machines and it'll be very help and identifying patterns potentially defined stories so there will be a group of reporters class reporters a type of reporter in the future who will harness AI to analyze databases identify patterns find investigative stories. There will also be kinds of stories that we no longer need to write to the Washington. Post is already experimenting with having a systems writing basic pieces so Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore. Orioles for to to happen. Because someone's home run and Joe got so they're kind of wrote stories that people like to read that you don't really need a human writing you can probably right about stock market and as time passes and as machines get better like those stories will increasing complexity. You won't be able to write three thousand word narratives profiles using an AI system. But you'll be able to write a certain kind class of story within the tasks that we have you right. It'll be changed a little bit. Copy editing an interesting profession. Where High End. Copy editing like trying to identify voice style that will stay with humans right to kind of copy. Editing Donna wired but there's a different level of copy editing that I think probably will be automated replaced by. There's fact checking that you smart a system could do so. There's certain tasks within the stack of tasks that make up the creation of an article. That will be done with I in a certain set of them. That won't be a lot of journalism in ball. Human to human contact human human reporting becoming friends with somebody eventually developing a relationship where they trust you to give you the information that makes an important story like a machine is not gonna be able to develop a trusted relationship with the source story but a machine will be able to do copy editing. The fact check legal review parts of that more efficiently than a human can so few ways. It's GonNa Change. They're probably about twenty five thousand others but that start that's interesting. You know one of the things we've noticed it. I don't think related specifically artificial intelligence but the whole idea of the long form article has really sort of. It's become a lot I mean. Maybe I'm just noticing it more become a lot. More prevalent icon. There's like bringing you into the emotion of the story and sort of like you know carrying rather than just talking about the facts of some story just today. I was reading this book about somebody who was lost in the Costa Rican rainforest and somebody wrote a book about it and and instead of just talking about that sort of brings you into the story and I found that to be really engaged. Something of course that you can't really do what they item wondering if one is sort of like a reaction to the other which is that. These sort of automated pieces are taking the place of sort of this more sorta wrote journalism and in the place now. Journalists are more storyteller switch bringing people into the narrative.

"Yeah I if there's a ten dollar bill on the floor I'm going to pick it up you know and so I we went to the FBI and And found the back. Pack that my son had purchased so I kind of knew something about you know done some investigative work and I met with the FBI and they said the same thing that they'd always said that they can't do anything. Unless there's you know a body and they can't get involved with Costa Rican criminal crime unless there's a body or or a ransom request and And so we left the FBI. And I picked up my phone security and there was a a message from Costa Rica and I called the number and it was the consul general that the embassy and they said Roman the body has been found nearby does Brazos and we think it may be your son. There was some camping gear there. Wow so this is like right as this Daca. This documentary series is GonNa Come Out. That purports to have solved the crime and in fact this gives a whole different picture. What happened next. Well Yep that was a Thursday that we were at the FBI. If I remember right and Sunday three or four days later is going to be the first episode of the show and so you know of course. I fly down to Costa Rica immediately. I want to get to this site Before they start bringing stuff up and the next day on Friday. The embassy sends me some texts and it's their photographs of the equipment that they've found at the site and sure enough. It's all my son stop you know like. I'd made a poster of equipment that he would have had as a like a reward poster and there were the green shoes that I put on the poster and there was the sleeping pad that was yellow on one side and silver on the other. There was that in one of these photographs and and there was the backpack that I'd found that he'd bought a north face store and there was a blue headlamp that I'd given him in Anchorage and there was the compass that I'd given him in Anchorage and there was his stuff and it was him so he flew down there and I hurried into the jungle and sure enough. They're bringing up his remains and as we walked out with all of this stuff and we got to Brazos. Well there was the production company you know wanting to get the story. And and the producer. He was dumbfounded he was. I don't think he ever said it but I sense that he believed it was my feeling. I'm you know I could be wrong. But it was my feeling that he believed that there was some sort of conspiracy here right. It's just too convenient. That right. Is Mike Terrific documentary is gonNA come out this new surprise evidence emerges you went to the site? You want to just describe being there what you saw and how did you feel you and your wife? Sure you know I I went there twice. I went there once The day that they were bringing the remains if I wanted to get there before they brought everything up. Because I wanted to make sure I wanted to see for myself and evaluate for myself had been an accident or if he'd been murdered there and it was in a Shallow Canyon That was only about you. Know half a mile from where I camped multiple times Looking for him. It was in the same drainage that I'd hiked up and down. I'd never got up that high because there are waterfalls between lower down and where he was found that I didn't pass but it was really close and it was off trail and it was in a place. Nobody would really go to. He was found by a minor who was looking for. I think mine was looking for him. Because what happened is in the run-up to this. Tv show the channel was running. You know like trailers of this. Tv show that was coming in the trailers. Were these really gruesome reenactments of what everybody thought was the murderer of my son so there would be like you know minors with bloody machetes and a and a young man face down in the creek. All this sort of you know titillating. Buzz creating recreation and the people in the village toes Brazos this. They were making their village. Look like a bunch of murderers and they are trying to start up a a tourism sort of economy there. Because they're right on the edge of Corcovado and this guy this minor I think the locals encouraged him to go into the jungle and look harder because This show is going to make him look bad when you and other. Investigators looked at the remains and the articles. That were there. What did they tell you about whether he might have been the victim of islands? Well there was a A forensic anthropologist who worked for the only hold up and she had told me at the site. 'cause I met them as they were like. You know fifty yards walking up from the site and the site was the bottom of this canyon. The big tree fall in the middle of the Canyon and all of his stuff at kind of collected in this trefor and they came up and she said Yeah. We looked at the bones. And there's no sign of trauma there was there were no. Michetti hack marks on the bones. There were no like bullet fractures and and it didn't look like there had been any trauma to the bones and another ranger. Who had was carrying up his gear and it was a very emotional point. Because I'd been for two years I've been looking for my son and And I you know I hope for the best but I was expecting the worst. And then here was the worst and he was dead and And it was a really painful moment but at the same time like in this sort of Deep Valley of grief I felt like we were on a little hill. Top of hope in the sense that on this little hilltop at least we knew what had happened when I I. It seemed like he hadn't been murdered. I can't see why somebody would have murdered him in the bottom of the Canyon And it looked to me like maybe a tree had fallen on him or one of the Rangers said they thought that. A snake bit numb. Because they found a fair lance down there and fertilizes. You know they. They live in the same area small area their whole life. They don't go very far so Fertilizers kind of Viper. Their Koschnick Right. Yup It's a very. It's kind of sneaked kills more people in Central America than any other kind of snakes. So that made sense to me but when I looked at is like this big stove the reed had and it looked like. He'd made a camp like you know his his compass was not around. His neck was laying on a log and it had the bearing to where he was headed. The Real Chloro- and his queen tarp was outside of his pack and his headlamp was out so it looked like he'd made camp his phone pad was out and stove. He'd had a stove out with a cook pot but the stove Cooked camping stove the burner head had been snapped off as if something heavy had broken it and similarly the canister of fuel had a huge dent in it like a real like like a log at hit it is a shallow y debt and so it seemed to me that maybe a log had fallen there was all of his stuff was underneath of this. This the the crown of a tree rainforest tree and another critical piece of it is that his passport and money were still there right so he hadn't been robbed right. Yes Oh Ken said well. I'm only going to believe that. It was an accident if his money and his passport or their insurance if they were there. Roman dials. Book is the adventurer son. We'll talk some more after a break..

"Right on the border of the park there was an American woman who was smothered in her house. And her I pod and iphone were stolen and then there was to us Austrians buying gold and then selling golden does Brazos and and somebody You know murdered them and stole their car. And you know dismembered them and buried them in In the sand and then actually lived in their house and In Costa Rica. You can't have a murder conviction without a body and so even though everybody knew this guy had done it and it turns out. He's like Pasta Laura's uncle or something it turned out that this guy had had actually killed him and when a tourist found the remains washed out of a sandy beach where creek changed his path and they were able to arrest this guy. So you're at this place and you're trying to get into the park Over the objections of the authorities at times under threat of arrest when you can to surge at one point they arranged for helicopter search was. Was this helpful. Well you know I didn't turn it down At all because I knew that if it were me and I was lost and broken in a soggy wet ten eating lizards in the jungle and I heard a helicopter flyover. I would know that they were looking for me and so I agreed to it And I actually flew in it for. I don't know less than an hour. Maybe half an hour and flying around the park. I mean it looks like it. Looks like somebody took a sheet of notebook paper and crumpled it up in their hands. And that's how you know rugged the terrain as and I looked down in the forest is tall and it's multi-layered and there was there'd be no way to see somebody there and I knew there were people down there. There were there were minors in their farmers and there were tourists. And you never saw anybody and I was had my nose pressed to the glass looking for my son hoping maybe he dragged himself out onto a creek bottom or onto a landslide. Someplace that I could see him but I didn't see him and it made me realize that I needed to be in the jungle on foot looking. So you're there for weeks and with the passage of time you know he doesn't turn up and you don't find him What were your emotions like at this point? Well you know You know here's there's a lot of different things happening is I. You know I went down there and I was sure I was just going to. I was gonna find him and bring them home alive. I I been involved with rescues before and brought people home and I. I thought this was going to be one of those in his time past and I realized that You know he was less and less likely I was gonNA find him alive and But I still you know it's it's like It's like it's a continuum it's not a it's not a on and off switch where you go from hoping he's alive knowing his dad and And even after six weeks down there I thought he could still be alive and we were still looking. Um when I returned around. Christmas time A few months later You know of course my wife and I were hopeful that maybe he would. He just left the country. I went to Panama to look for him. I thought maybe he would have just sort of abandoned US somehow. But at the didn't add up some people said Oh he's just doing his own thing and he doesn't need to tell you but I we couldn't see our son doing that but he was still hopeful he was alive and just having some adventure somewhere else and it wasn't until you know I heard from the embassy that they'd found his his gear. There's a lot of his gear. That was missing that I'd never found anywhere and it turns out that had been at the hostel all the time all along a big backpack that he'd bought in Mexico that I was not familiar with. That was actually next to the yellow bag and inside. This big backpack. Were a bunch of things that I knew. He needed for Not For this jungle camping but for other things and so it just deepened. The mystery of what had happened to him. Right after. You'd been down there for a while you finally your your wife. Peggy was in Alaska. Working the phones trying to get public officials in the US seeing if there was a way to get US military help which it seemed. There was a prospect for but didn't pan out and you finally emailed her and said I'm coming home and she said no right right. Yeah I mean I was I you know. You know I'd looked in the jungle and I finally gotten some permission and You know I'd never asked. I didn't the idea of the military help wasn't my idea was other people and And I wasn't going to say no I just. It seemed like a good idea and I wasn't going to say no but All I wanted to do was go down there and look and when I couldn't find him I was kind of depressed and I I. I didn't know where to look and I had to go and I when I was in the jungle always hope while when I if I go back to town maybe he's shown himself and he's there and then when I was in town I'd be like God. I can't be here in town. I gotta get back in the jungle and it was a it was a difficult time and I guess I was just sort of overwhelmed by a month of looking and not finding and I wanted to head home. I missed my family and but my wife was. You know know you gotta stay down there. And then she came down to help. Yeah I got the only that she needed to go there and follow the route this. Her son had described and try for herself to find him right absolutely. Yeah I mean I you know I. I'm reading a book right. Now where people actually disappeared wilderness. All over the United States kind of at a relatively frequent rate. And so you know for us to go and actually look. It was very helpful. I mean I would if I whenever I couldn't look I felt helpless and I was much more depressed But when I looked I could feel like I was actually doing something and I. I know that it was good for her as well. Roman dials book is the adventurer son. After a break he'll talk about how the search for his son changed. He and his wife agreed to cooperate with the production company that wanted to make a TV documentary about the case. Also book critic Maureen Corrigan.

Delta keep climbing you and your wife were eventually contacted by TV. Production company among one of many that had had pitched in this one seemed to have some promise because it included a former air force paratrooper. Who would go with you into the jungle? Assist you in a rigorous search for your son and then a former. Da Investigator who would conduct a criminal investigation so you agree to sign a contract with them because it seemed as it might be helpful in getting at the truth as it turned out they couldn't get permits from the Costa Rican authorities to get into the to the rainforest to search so the focus became the criminal investigation and this investigator. A Carson. At one point gets you in a room with cameras rolling reveals that they think they have solved the case and they tell you what happened. What did he tell you well It actually wasn't even in a studio. It was in a hot stuffy Kind of Open Air Room at noontime. In the middle of the day it was ninety degrees up there and it was like one hundred percent humidity. This is in Costa Rica. It was in Costa Rica and I had just flown back from Alaska. And they were all excited the producers and the director. We've we've got really important news for you. People have been working hard to get information. And we're going to give you the whole lowdown here come on up and so I went up and there were like three cameraman and bright lights and Carson sitting at this table and and Ken sitting at the table and they put me between them and and Carson says look. This is really hard to tell you. But we've found out that your son was abducted by miners and then he was murdered. And he he he ause he said. This is the hardest part to tell you. He was Dismembered and fed to the sharks in the ocean and it was. All you know predicated on the Polera story is what he said and I was just shocked because here I had come down and you know I signed up for this. Tv show hoping that they would be able to help me but instead all they had done a sort of stage. This really kind of dramatic moment. Where like on live you know with the cameras rolling. They had this expert Investigator you know. Tell me that my son had been murdered and dismembered and fed to sharks and all I could think of is you know. Oh no another pot lower story. This is not. This is not the guy that I want so it felt really exploitive right there right. You know you you you do write that. There were times after being sold told so many times. It's Potter Laurie. He was involved in the murder. And you just don't know what like a lot of parents don't know what your kids were up to. Was there a point at which you doubt yourself and came to believe them will absolutely I mean I? You know I'm I'm wrong a lot of time this whole search I was wrong over and over and over again and maybe I was wrong about my son. Maybe he'd been lying about all the things that he'd been doing. Maybe this the person that I thought he was wasn't who he was and he was a different person. Who would be with Pot Laura on a trail outside of the park? Not doing what he said he would do so I had to I. Did I doubted myself? I embrace this idea and I carried that story forward They eventually got pat. Laura into a kind of hot or a cabin in the Costa Rica and with hidden cameras recorded an interview with him in which he tells a story that he took Your son was with your son in them and they were in the presence of these illegal miners and then pot. Laura ran away before they did whatever they were going to do. So it wasn't exactly clear or conclusive and it was certainly not the only version he had told. It's kind of funny because I did. I was pushing the story and I even told the story to the only Hoda who's the head investigative organization in Costa Rica. One of their the FBI kind of right. Yep exactly and then I I mean I went down on multiple trips with the Ohio and And the police and In the Park Rangers looking for a body on pot to Laura trail so to speak where we thought it would be and we went on the secret trail. That the Guidos these miners who are supposedly killed my son and Butler story was always changing. But we chased all these leads and found nothing and the show was about to come out and my My wife and I were to Washington. Dc kind of in a last ditch effort to sort of get the FBI to kind of get involved and again. This is stuff that I was always I? I didn't. I wouldn't have thought to do this but other people were encouraging me to do it. You know And and I and my wife you know and it seemed like a good idea..

The Best Places To Retire Abroad In 2020

"Are some of the best places to retire comma internationally. This this show has an international flavor favor to it. I did some very extensive Internet searches and research this for at least thirty minutes today. Yeah good for you. It's been a tough week. I'll be honest. The show did not take a priority and the other things I was doing but whenever the pasta the pasta gets meat or sausage. The what ever really. I'm also hungry all right. So let's start in investor. pedia looked at the cost of living index and the global peace index to determine airman the cheapest and safest places to retire so if not spending a lot of money and not getting stabbed is high on your list of retirement goals goals then let countdown. The top. Three number three was Czech Republic. And if you WANNA do this get in now because right now now Czech Republic only has about six thousand American ex pats there at the moment so it turns out. Czech Republic is very safe and pretty cheap to live in beautiful. Absolutely I've never ever been. I would love to go. They have a lot of castles apparently so progress beautiful but even some of the outlying at Karlovy vary which is old spa town gorgeous okay. Let's see all right the segments. We decided we're going to Czech Republic. Well the point is if you WANNA go like. Now's the time to think about doing 'cause it's apparently not many people thought about it yet. All right number two Australia invested pedia suggests that you can retire on two hundred thousand dollars in savings and social security in Australia because of the cost of living. Although I'm pretty sure anyone who's listening to this in Sydney just spat they're flat white out for surprise because I think I think maybe they're thinking yes Australia. If you'RE GONNA live way out in the Bush and not in like a town and kind of a big place that's that's a bold claim their kerchove right. It's fine all right and then so the number one place for cheap and safe to retire. Is Austria dubbed dubbed the Swiss Alternative Austria offers the beauty of Switzerland excellent infrastructure and a high living standard but enterprise. That's easier on the budget budget. So you get Switzerland at Austrian prices especially if you're you fans of the sound of music is beautiful. You could save money by making enclose out of curtains. Let's go hey. Another sound of music reference topical. All right well. What if you're flush with money because you invested so wisely with the Motley Fool's advice well? US News and World Report put together their list of where a fluent people should consider retiring abroad. Number three was yeah. Why settle for Austria when you can have Switzerland yes? The real thing came in at number three because of its favorable taxes neutrality ability and all that other goods Swiss stuff number two was interestingly enough on their list Australia because it has everything. It's a place for fluid people and the cash strapped so in this case US News I think was more focusing on the city's and how nice it is to live in Australia. Yeah I told you. This was not a lot of tough research. That was done. I don't think on anyone's part really mine or who. I'm citing Australia's a really big place. Yeah we got options and the number one place that. US News reports said that a fluent people should consider retiring from America for the the fourth consecutive year. new-zealand came in at number one for comfortable retirement. I've never been you've been rick. No stop on my bucket doc. Id List though we get well and there could be where you kick the bucket all right. Well what about the best overall place to retire. International Living Living magazine compiles their annual list based on the journalists and editors that they have on the ground international countries and what they have to say number three Costa Rica which is also known as it. I'm not making this up. Switzerland of Central America. Not everyone is deal is Switzerland but it was just kept coming up in my research So a couple can live comfortably on two thousand dollars a month. In Costa Rica Apparently Bentley Costa Ricans are very nice people. There's lots of activities and a lovely climate. I've been to Costa Rica. So here's a good piece of advice. I got about traveling around Costa Rica. Maybe it applies to the rest rest of the world. Say Yes Costa Ricans are Nice people But you can judge the friendliness of town by how friendly. They're stray dogs are so if you enter a town and the stray dogs are not friendly. Then you should move onto another town in. Costa Rica never heard before though right because if the dogs are are mean and scared and it's probably because the people around them aren't being nice to them and so don't they also have monkey's running around Costa Rica. Yeah howler monkeys howler monkeys when we visited. Is that top on your list. I need to make a list of the top countries to retire. That have monkey. We're actually thinking of going there. So that's one of the things. My kids like what it could go place with our monkeys running around so selling point. There's a volcano. We saw lava insane all right number two from international living's list of the best places to retire Panama so Panama One last year overall. But this year it's in second place. I just three hours by plane for Miami. You can rent an ocean view condo for as little as fifteen hundred a month in the cosmopolitan city of Panama City. Healthcare there is solid Alad and their program discounts is made available to retirees. And it means you get like twenty five percents off your energy bills and airline tickets and just lots of other stuff off so Panama. I've never thought about going to Panama. And it's good thing you bring healthcare because this is an emerging trend where people retire overseas. Because you can't live very decent lifestyle. This is a much lower cost than would have in the US but it's important to know that Medicare does not cover any sort of healthcare services outside of the US now in places like Panama. Ah The healthcare is so cheap that you're still fine but just know that if you have major surgery a lot of times these people have to fly back to the. US wanted covered by Medicare all right and the number one place to live a court to retire. According to international living is Portugal. A dear friend of ours here at the full just is retired Portugal. Peter so I will say their methodology here they only looked at twenty four countries And this website really has a thing for Portugal so why is number. Why did they pick Portugal? The number one place to retire. Well they say it's very affordable the client the climate is delightful. Healthcare is good. Food is good history retuns of things to do etc.. It's all great but they said the best part is that it's the people because they're very welcoming to foreigners and just it's a great place to make friends it's on the third safest country in the world the second cheapest in Europe while and a couple can live a comfortable lifestyle for about twenty five hundred dollars a month or if you're living in the city. Yeah but they're you know so those are some of the places I've found. I considered to retire to you excited. I am excited. Yeah there are lots of people who live very exciting retirement on less than thirty thousand dollars a year by living all over the world.

"Hundred responses. They turn those responses into a great episode. They just published it. You can go listen now. One of the stories they included in their show was just so delightful and so- eliminating that we said we have got to run this as one as a planet money so that's what today's episode is a now. I'm just gonna turn the show over to gregory warner. The host of rough translation in in two thousand and ten felipe fernandez was laid off from his i._t. Job at hewlett packard in costa rica fully based costa rican and the layoff was a huge blow. He didn't what he was going to do next someone from his family fully they didn't want me to say who approached him with a potential job. There was a business that needed an i._t. He person which sounded good he was an i._t. Guy he needed work so i was obviously curious. What he said was <hes>. We actually <hes> run. This cam on senior citizens the people who need the i._t. Guy they were in the business of calling people steal their money senior citizens in the u._s._a. He elaborated said we have a script. All you have to do is call and call and call until someone bites. You know this groped ma'am. I have good news for you. You have won a sweepstakes prize of four and a half million dollars. All you have to do due to collect that prize is wire a small deposit for our insurance policy that is forty five hundred dollars and you can send that today by western union. I was doubtful awful. How can you really make money out of that but this scam is pulling in hundreds of deals a week. They call it deals each call it deal the scammers are called agents and this operation like all businesses needs an i._t. Guy philippe as hearing this and he's horrified. I that this is a business seconded. His relatives involved but philippi keeps a poker face. I immediately told him to. This is not something that i can just decide site right there and then <hes> but that i will think about philippi goes home any google's the phone number for the f._b._i. They tell them that's. That's not our jurisdiction. He should call up the u._s. Embassy in costa rica. I called him and they asked me to come in for a meeting which i did and is it like the the movies. Do they meet you you in a in a room with you know the blinds closed. It was just a conference room and and the u._s. embassy in this conference room. He explains his plan dan. He wants to take the job. Collect information that the u._s. authorities might use like the names of these games and their location. Maybe some license plates you as you said. I am about to take this job and i want to stop this stuff from happening. I want you to know what i'm doing so you don't think i'm one of the bad guys so that pretty much astounded us to a year. That joe healy was a u._s. Postal inspector these now retired but in two thousand and ten he was investigating mail fraud specifically telemarketing scams in costa rica and weirdly the hard thing about prosecuting these cases was not finding the bad guys it was finding the victims crooked you so so embarrassed and so ashamed the victims didn't come forward because they felt so ashamed about falling for the con and so for joe healy it's kind of the reverse of the typical investigators problem instead of having the dead body trying to figure out who the bad guy is. He knows the bad guy. He has to track down enough victims to make the arrest. We needed a lot of victims a lot of credible victims and lots of losses without lots of victims and lots of losses. We couldn't bring cases joe. Healy is sitting in this conference room with fully bay the i._t. Guy in his buttoned-up shirt physically little guy. He's five foot four and not not overly muscular. He's trying to explain to this isn't some quick job where you grab some license plate numbers and addresses he would need the names of the victims and philippa is considering doing it heading into the criminals den to get that information himself. We said okay you know. We can't guarantee your safety because we can't be there. You know so as long as you're going into the open is <hes> you know that that would help when felipe day was a kid. He never imagined himself in i._t. He thought he'd be a cop like his grandfather. A police chief in san jose flea bay remembers watching his grandfather on the local news when he solved a big case.

Ninety even one minute. Maybe boot holes was trying to never get this gig again because he did have plans to go to Costa Rica for all star week. And then he got the job. So maybe just doesn't wanna come back but play them together. That's what everybody wants to see. You're right. Some degree except maybe those two guys who cares sort of double down on. Yeah. Just like for each other to be you're talking about Saturday at media shock and beat was asked you wanna play with rest Westbrook. He's like, I don't like anybody. I I don't to me. It would have been like Westbrook and Durant on the all star team. They would have been lovey-dovey. They would have been guarding each other had a little funny fun. It's next question. I think too right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe keeping a planet. Cool. Could you? I was supposed to be in Costa Rican wanna deal with this sit on your other side of the bed.

But I think that's what the quality of the most has there's no question my mind that we can do this often just about continued that consistency in quality matches. Of course, you are now in Portland no longer in Salt Lake City. And unfortunately, you move somewhere where your beard, isn't all that special. I would guess although maybe I'm wrong. Maybe there's a lot of really really like grizzly man beards. Rolling around Portland. Do you see a lot of people that that are like, hey, we're on the same page here. And he had people that want to touch it because I can imagine you're five to ten year old demographic is going to be really really fascinated by that. Well, the the color of my beer temples, definitely part from the difficul, you know, Brown or black bearded lumberjack out here. But it's it's been it's been fun. I mean, I think the beard was kind of contingency as part of my trade, you know, Gavin killing about it and said book, you can't you can't shave thing. I mean, it's going to be braced and people are gonna love it. And they definitely have here. It's been a lot of fun interacting with fans, and you know, having fun with it. I was looking through photos this morning for for the hall of fame ceremony for US soccer. And I found one of you. I believe back in the youth days, and you have kind of this big mushroom top of blonde hair. No beard. Why? When did when did when did you decide look I have to grow this beard, and I asked to go bigger, go home. Well, I think it really had a lot to do with the opposite sex, and that would be my wife, and I don't think it's it would attract very many females seem guy and my wife's actually okay with it. When I saw to know at the end of two thousand thirteen so really, I just gotta, you know, make sure she's happy with in. This is in that. We all heard that over the course of the offseason you had an opportunity you knew you were going to leave Salt Lake to kind of pick where you were going to go based on the teams that approached you, why did you pick Portland? And what was the number two? What was the runner up team that maybe potentially would have had that porches? Well, there was a lot of factors in jobs of making that decision, and I would say that number one was talker just going to place where where I knew that that team picking coming and be funny in now I got to see firsthand playing Portland the last couple of years how they are. You know, the kind of attention this team has so that was another one definitely talks to to home where we're from Colorado and being close to home is important, and you know, as far as far as other suitors, we got a couple of these that were interested, but they were just a little bit far east. And I think that this is really finis too. So who I'm a huge NBA fan. So I want to ask you your move kind of reminds me of you know, the Ray Al into the Miami Heat type mover Rasheed Wallace to the pistons. Where your veteran you can target a specific position that a team that's close needs. And really, you know, put yourself in their to kind make them a championship contender. Do you feel like it's that type of move for you? What is asking? Are you the final piece that? I wish that was the case. I wish I was that the the rail in off the bench guy, but you know, being centreback, obviously, it's different dynamic. But you know, I just want to team, you know, I think that they've got so many somebody qualities that I like about playing soccer team in terms of, you know, their desire to keep the ball possession based their their ability to be dynamic in the attack the the group..
