"We always update things on our facebook. Page com just punching cumberland island national park service and our facebook page will pop up there. We also have camping opportunities. So if you're a little bit more adventurous than you wanna spend more than just a couple of hours on the island. That's an opportunity. You will wanna make a reservation for that. And they can be done up to six months in advance and that would be at recreation dot o. V. it is all tent camping. You pack everything. Impact everything out but people come back year after year and absolutely loved those opportunities. So there's a lot of different ways to explore the island. But you just have to do a little bit of pre-planning improperly that you mentioned too about peck everything. Imprac everything out of putting a on on that. Because that's another way of conservation as well as making yes. We don't leave anything. But you know those nice footprints behind a given careful with those footprints. Yes you are But yes. I am glad that you that you mentioned that. And everything out means everything some Trash behind you know things like that was something that you think might be just small. Our national park system has many designations that fall under it and carbon is a national seashore. So asked pauline to make sure that she let us know before she goes. Exactly what a c. sure is and how that falls under the national park service so we are designated as a national seashore which fits under the umbrella of national parks. So a lot of folks don't recognize the fact that we are essentially the same thing as a national parks given a slightly different designations since we are a long coastal area but we fit under that same umbrella in so things like national park passes that people have been issue all apply to help with the entrance fees to so yeah we do want to recognize that we are essentially within that park service as a national park to quite an honor to be selected to be featured as one of the us mints commemorative quarters. I asked pauline to tell us about the process and just the whole experience.

"Find on the island. We do have private. Residents about five percent or so of the island is still privately. Owned some of them are descendants of the carnegie families. Some of them are folks that will eventually have land that revert to the park service in public lands. So it's kind of a combination. Most of these are ones that have been grandfathered in so generally. You're not able to purchase land out there and the that are there are good caretakers of the island. They want to see that area preserved not only for the wildlife but for the enjoyment people to quote amounts mouse. Travel is out about inspire you to learn more about the designs on the reverse side of the us mid squatters. We also want to inspire you to travel to these destinations and see for yourself. Some of the things that we have discussed on each episode. And we're cumberland island. There's a lot to see along with the snow and parlaying tells us all the things we can see. And do with the visit to cumberland island. That's one of the nice. Things is that cumberland has a variety of topics that give people kinda good smorgasbord of interest in topics that they can enjoy while they're out there so there several tours there is a self guided cell phone tour that can be done at talks about the history especially around the south. End your dungeness and that's one that you can do it. A nice casual walking tour. When staff is available we have ranger led tours down through the dungeness areas. Well we offer various programming From seining to walk so that visitors can take advantage of that. There's no charge for either of these. There is also a land legacies tour which is a six outer six hours. Excuse me motorized who are offered by the concessionaire that one takes you up to the north end and back and so you get probably the best overall view That tour six hours. As i mentioned those long day. But you are in a fifteen passenger vans and so you're able to cover most of the island fairly easily quite a good opportunity to seeing inexperienced the various things that are on the islands attitude. They're the wild horses at cumberland's non-foreign an people love to come and see and see them. Wow and they're very easy to use your wandering around that area. They wander through the various habitats. So if you're walking along the boardwalk in the salt marsh you may see them in the distance as you tour through the dungeon s area. You may see him there as well so it is very common to see them. One thing i always tell my visitors is that you can read the books and you can say that egrets. And herons are going to be most active in the early morning or dusk in the evening. But it's unfortunately we had that big influence of tie in so they don't read our books and they have to do what they do. In response to what mother nature provides so to be honest really depends on what the todd is doing is to how easy they'll see You wanna be out there at low tide to see the the birds the messed. Because they'll be along the mudflats really stand out whereas at high tide. They're going to be in that same area but a lot of times they're hiding in the marsh grasses and you won't be able to see them interestingly even though you're pretty good sized bird and generally we're not going to be mucking down through. That mud named would be able to escape very easily. You get close enough that they notice you. They will fly away very quickly so you do have to be very cautious and quiet. Almost stealthy as you're approaching them. Especially if you wanna watch them if you're trying to get a good picture at an angle so you do want to be very wary. Said that they don't fly away. she did say photos. I want a great tips. So that when i'm there on carbon i could catch the perfect shot of the snowy. Egret if things about cumberland. Is that the photography opportunities are tremendous and being along the marsh edge again going along that boardwalk gives you an opportunity to get out a little bit further towards that marsh area. But most photographers know that you want the sun at your back so that you can have that lighting the animal there and you don't want too many shadows for the most part You can get some cloud cover. Actually that makes him some cases a good shot as well because it's not such a glaring light on there so there's a lot of different techniques that you could use but those are the two easiest ones. I would say that everybody would be able to follow. Company on amazon is a national seashore part of the national park service with conservation laws in place. But i asked pauline. What are some of the things that we as citizens and visitors to places need to keep in mind in terms of conservation and making sure that beautiful birds like the snow creek will be around for a long long time. The main thing is going to be habitat conservation We unfortunately have a lot of pressure on our wetland areas to live along them because we enjoy them so much in some cases in the past they have been filled in so there have been laws that have been passed to protect the birds and their habitat. Things like the lacey aggie dangerous species act it. Most people are familiar with north american wetland conservation act an easier all designed to protect that habitat. And that's one of the main things is for us just to be aware what's going on in our world and making sure that we continue to protect those wetlands so that it also benefit us but also these birds that live in there on a day to day basis. We'll how can we come to cumberland. We are ready to do that. So can you write a website and You mentioned a couple of touring opportunities that sound. Great far people wanted to get out and stretch their legs and walk are also wants what we can get into that a sixty passenger van as well. Yes indeed so you do have to access the island by boat. We have a ferry. That goes out every day during our high season which would be spring summer install in winter. It goes out every day. Except for tuesday and wednesday in the easiest way to check. That schedule is either to go to our website. Www dot nps dot g-o-v v. forward slash c. You i s. You can also type in cumberland island ferry and it will take you to the concessionaires website. We do recommend making reservations for that. That way. you can guarantee your space in you know how much time you can plan for on the island. And you have also reserved that space on the land of legacy tour for the concessionaires website. And that would be cumberland island. Ferry dot com..

"Actually fledge or get out of the nest in about two to three weeks. So it's a pretty quick nesting time period One of the odd things that i found is that they say that adults are not able to recognize a may. Unless they're actually sitting on the nest in there are certain movements that that couple will make to each other to identify the fact that they are actually. They're made so. I thought that was kind of curious. Considering that you think most animals you know even though we don't necessarily recognize the differences that they would be able to but maybe it's a little bit of a dance that they have to do in order to do that as you know. You're you're you're a person. I guess the burj made. Yes you got it. The nest sounds like they are perfectly situated to keep everyone safe so once a little bit more about who builds the nest and how they go about protecting each other and their young in the nest as far as we can tell it is the male and the female that will build that nest and so they will actually hang out together for a long time and they've got that specific spot so once they know where they're going than it makes it easier but both of them are pretty good they both take turns incubating the eggs which is also very nice cheering that here and he and then caring for the young as well so it's not a one or the other is basically both for all of them the main protection would be in that rookery with having so many other birds around there. That safety in numbers is their philosophy of protection. So they're not going to be like other ground nesting birds where they might do some kind of a A face injury to lure a predator away to protect them. It's basically that if something's coming up after them Unfortunately a lot of times they'll just fly away and see what happens so no. There's not a lot of aggression or any type of behavior that we could do that. Just hopefully early recognition of a predator coming along appalling share with me a little unknown fact about the baby chicks and how they relate to each other and bit of serious sibling rivalry. I would say chicks and The nesting aspect of it. One thing that i found really interesting is that they said the six can actually pretty aggressive towards each other so while the adults are very skittish the younger chicks will actually kind of be aggressive towards their weaker siblings and so even though they may start out with three to four eggs they will actually sometimes kill each other and so there may only be to. That actually fled. So it's a tough start in their world. I would say really. That's interesting talk about sibling. Rivalry right you've got that right in the worst kind of way although cumberland got the great distinct new recognition for the home of the snowy egrets. You can't find them in other places along the sincere board polly also shares are conservation. Efforts have helped saying the snowy egrets as well. They're actually found quite frequently all around this area. So it's not just on cumberland island you will actually find them all up and down the coastal area so You can find them from virginia and further north all the way down into the gulf area. So it's a pretty wide spread area. That they're found in the nice thing is. Is that since early times late. Eighteen to early nineteen hundreds. These birds were actually on the way out because the plumes were gathered for the fashion industry and unfortunately they ended up killing them in order to get those plumes but because we've now restricted. That and they're not utilized in that way conservation efforts of really allowed us populations to rebound and so they're pretty easy to see And all of the atlantic seaboard as well as the gulf coast. You can find them along. Any of the waterways is very lucky that the snow eagles call the island home but there is some migration with the birds. Pauline tells us a little bit about that. There is some migration. It's not an extensive one likely see with some other species but you were basically going to see the same burge. Whether you're looking along. Virginia maryland coast along area as well as the gulf coast. So they're not going to be a lot of difference in the look and the size of them. You may have a difference in the amount of down centers that are underneath ear. And i say they do have some migration as well although it's not real extensive so why so. Why do you think georgia's just only the temperatures and more food that's available throughout the year. Just what makes choose georgia. It's because it sounds like maybe georgia would provide a year round to to call home right and anywhere along the southern seaboard. I would say from actually North carolina down south carolina. Georgia florida. Like you said because our climate is fairly mild here. Our winters are very mild. They don't feel that need that they would have to do that. Expensive migration our temperatures very seldom get down to freezing so being temperate. They are able to find food year round and that just allows them to stay here and to survive very well. Part of it of course is the location that we have. And so where we are along the atlantic seaboard. We have a six to seven foot title. Difference show there is a wide area. That's going to be exposed at low tide and that allows them again to have good habitat for hunting for food and when the time comes in it brings fresh food into them. so that tidal fluctuation is. I'm that allows them to have a good variety of food and that's always a bonus right there a part of it again be because of the amount of water that comes in and outs. We do have a lot of salt. Marsh area cumberland itself in along the georgia coast. In general. we have protected the salt marsh fairly well. And so as a result that provides them a very broad area habitat that they could survive in not only for food sources but also for protection and so. That's a big factor For any species overall on cumberland when you're visiting out there you do have access with the boardwalk down near dungeness area so that this is actually a long a title creek in that title creek at low tide is filled with birds that are going after the food that has been caught in some of the water puddles that are left after the tide has gone out so again just being in the right place at the right time allows you to see. These urged fairly easily coming on island is located in a great spot for birth sakala home. But where exactly is combination. Of course this one of the beautiful barrier islands off the coast of georgia. But i wouldn't to tell us a little bit more about the island where it's located. And what makes it. So special cumberland is right along the south eastern point of georgia. We are right on the state. Line between florida and georgia and so the saint. Mary's river is that border and so that allows us to see them as we're going along the ferry route out to the island as well but literally. We're looking across the river to florida so As far as you can go east in far as you can go south before you hit florida. That's where georgia Or cumberland island is it's eighteen miles from one end to the other. So that makes us the largest that we have a long are hundred miles of coastline birds. Carl coming at home but cumberland is not just for birds. It's also for people to so as polly to tell us a little bit about the human that you.

Football Booster Club Raffles Firearms, Concerning Some Parents

"Us what the cedar cliff. Colts booster club. Did and how it was received. Well you know a lot of these district clubs are what support In particular football those are what support the team. It helps them get the new equipment. New jersey Things of that nature the things that keep them safe and and they're usually charged with you know making a raising x. amount of money and they're all volunteer booster clubs are all volunteer programs. Almost all just made up with the parents because the players and or the cheerleaders and this year has been particularly hard to raise money. Because you know restaurants aren't giving you know is is. They're reluctant to give away anything free. Which is what they traditionally do or give away free meals In support of the booster club. You know this kids will buy a certificate and then they go around and they try to sell her raffle well. It's become incredibly impossible for these young people to raise money so they came up with the idea of having a raffle. There's ten different items on the raffle of those ten five variety of different kinds of guns. Now in dolphin and and cumberland counties because this this school district covers both Owning a gun is as common is only a car or a chart country this is hatred on thing and target shooting and and so you know they decided to have a raffle and gowns for part of it now. If the if you wanna gun eat it went one it. You got two hundred dollars dead. But there was one parent who took exception to this role and took it to the school district and the school district in. Its great wisdom that i understand your feelings however we have no jurisdiction over this.

"Just the nature of the times where he was at and what he was doing. He ended up being in conflict with different times. That you have to analyze zim. I think you'd have to analyze that aspect of him in context of his peers and compared his peers. Yeah he had a very lenient. Compared to the long hunters compared to other millet other soldiers of the time seems to have had a very tolerant rather progressive view of of relations between the euro. Americans in the native americans bought at the same time. Did a tremendous amount in some respects one could say like unintentionally but knowingly did a tremendous amount to displace those people but understood the loss that he was inflicting. Dr taylor keen is a graduate of dartmouth college and has a couple of graduate degrees from harvard. He's currently a professor in the business. School of crichton university in omaha nebraska most relevant for this conversation. He's a member of the cherokee in omaha nation. He considered himself a citizen historian the cherokee nation. I wanted to ask him about the other side of the story of the cumberland gap meet professor king professor team. I want to Want to tell you and experience. That had while i was in kentucky i took my family to the cumberland gap. So the cumberland gap sits on the border of tennessee virginia and kentucky and the way that we came through. The gap was from. Virginia and tennessee side. So we came from east to west. And as i. I'd been thinking about this for so long. I was excited in you. Kinda drive on this highway. And you can see the cumberland gap. And as i'm there with my boys car wife. I'm talking to them about how you know. This is what daniel boone saw. This is exactly what he saw minus the buildings in civilization when he came through here. And we we went through the cumberland gap from from east to west. We stayed in middlesboro kentucky that night and that evening we decided we were going to drive back through the gap and when i was driving from west to east i just had the thought that most likely the first human to ever walk through that gap came from west east most likely no one really knows where the indigenous people of north america exactly came from but the best evidence right now i would say with. They came from the west and moved into the east and it was really kind of moving thought because as an as a american. I'm thinking about the european americans that came from east to west but the indigenous peoples they would have found that thousands of years before before americans did in the french did and white europeans and it was. And that's what got me on this train of thought of you know we celebrate this path. People passing through this gap but for the indigenous people of this country of this continent. It wasn't something necessarily to be celebrated. And that's why i wanted to talk to you. I just wanted to get your your perspective and just talk about ultimately the impact of of europeans. Coming in through the cumberland gap and then just settling the rest of north america. I think that's a fantastic intro. And that's the big question is not how long ago where the first humans to see that. And that's a mind. Mind boggling question for sure. The theory to which you are indicating is the baron straight theory. Correct there's a couple of them. I hear of. But that has an indelible. On americans. Perceptions of indigenous peoples are ancient cherokee stories Say that we come from an island in the east meaning the atlantic and that we were on a island that had volcanoes and Big turtles that's actually a very important part of cherokee cosmology. Those those Turtles but that makes it sound like it's somewhere around the galapagos or something like that and then our stories say that that that was where we had massive temples and and an earlier golden age that eventually water overcame the island and we had to flee. And that's where our stories of grandmother spider carried our one number from one great fire and that we've migrated into what would be south america and the turkey is the only tribe that utilize blow dart guns as hunting weapons as well as double walled basket tree. And so that's an imprint. Of our time in south america and then that we migrated up over the great old man which is the mississippi river and then eventually found ourselves up near the senecas because that's are most closely related tribal groups and eventually we were forced down south into what is more often than not viewed as you know turkey homelands but we were probably immigrants to that areas while you can look to the five civilized. Tribes the creeks in the choctaw chickasaw and and and the seminoles that was that was their homeland but turkey certainly occupied it. The question is for how long. So when we're talking about things. Like the cumberland gap it. Time as continuing makes it really really messy regardless of who discovered that of course. We'll we'll never know. Most americans would site that of daniel. Boone who valley signs. I think indigenous peoples had a bigger influence on on daniel boone and other frontiers men than what is more popularly recognized. Yes and little things like him. Basting the turkey with its own juices and something that you know we as americans just take for commonplace but I was probably thousands year old indigenous practice with you know with those those great birds that have been here for a very long time very important in tribal cultures. Talk to me about the the long term like high level overview of what happened what that started to the indigenous people when when white europeans came through that gap. Well it's There's one aspect of indigenous history in the americas that you can't get around. That's the issue of smallpox and disease primarily smallpox. However it got here many scholars would theorized it came from the spanish probably spanish conquistadors and whether or not came directly from human contact or dogs or horses of course in these days we all understand the basics of a pandemic doesn't doesn't matter how it got here. What does matter was the impact on indigenous peoples without exception across all of the americas. Whether that's what is now. Canada and the united states central america south america the indigenous peoples were decimated by smallpox most conservative estimates are around seventy percent but the bulk of the data that we do have is eighty five to ninety five percent decimation death rates from smallpox. And so we have these fascinating documented encounters with indigenous peoples from say the spanish conquistadors and massive numbers tribal peoples in the amazon mesoamerica. You can pick your conquistador and follow each story but the story is pretty much the same. They were outnumbered. In many cases pushed back repelled or defeated came back with larger armies a few years later and found everyone gone. And so it's that's that's the story that i think is so hard for people to get their minds wrapped around. Think of your one hundred closest friends and family and there's only five of you left. Wow so it at the least it Only have detrimentally impacted tribal peoples whether that's abrasive headman. In warriors which is crucial at such times or the the the knowledge of agricultural lifeways ninety five percent of the knowledge gone so in many cases we were kind of faced with almost a cultural amnesia. And so if you were a child that survived that no longer. Do you have ninety. Five percent of those teachers storytellers. You have five and they have five percent of what was left. So you have this huge gap and made it an easy story for your americans coming to america to view it as a vast wilderness when in reality you know it's been populated for over ten thousand years for sure and arguably twenty to thirty thousand years so there there was no wilderness. There was only land and the animals and whether one knew them or not. I'd look at things. Like the cumberland gap and i think. Easy ten thousand years maybe fifteen and if we go into the number of generations of people that is. It's just mind boggling. When we think of american history just at a surface level you think of wars with indigenous people that would have killed native americans. immuno musket balls and whatnot. But really that. That's not the culprit. That's not the main culprit. The main culprit was disease this hidden this hidden warfare that came in just from contact which is just really such a bizarre thing when you think about it because how how bad at i don't know i mean i'm sure there's science behind how these white europeans were coming from tightly grouped dwelling places of people so disease with spread around and these indigenous people were living. These healthy lives out in the wild so they didn't have disease. That's the biggest irony. Because nearly all of these pandemic says it were smallpox etcetera all came from domesticated animals So smallpox is a evasion of cowpox. And that's why there was a greater immunity towards it with european populations They were certainly not immune when you dig deep into american history. You see the impact on even on the founding fathers themselves you know just a personal question professor keen like i mean you can tell from me doing a podcast series on daniel boone. This is a man that like. I want to celebrate you. See inside the research. Boone was just a figurehead. He was just an archetype for for what americans did. He was just the one that we kind of picked to be our heroes. So we're not necessarily picking on boone but like how. How do you feel when we celebrate. Somebody like boone. I mean but you're in american as well now. I mean it's so long past but what are your personal thoughts on that. I've just always found it fascinating. I mean first of all i. I consider myself a patriot. And i love our country and i understand why all cultures need heroes. And so you talked a lot about branding and archetypes. And of course that's all stuff in our and our field a business. And i understand that. And so i acknowledge that he was an icon. He was an archetype of that frontier. Zeman but i also feel like there should be in history indigenous peoples that he worked with learned from spent time hunting with that should also be those types types of heroes and we don't know who those are but guaranteed they were there He did have a relationship with try. The cherokees he did have a relationship with the shawnise. I'm just glad that podcasts like yours. Today bring those aspects of history backup because it only adds to the rich tapestry of really. What would made those individuals able to survive. What an incredible perspective from professor came. I want to go back to mr morgan and hear what he has to say about historical revision. I figure he's got some insight in modern times people have they go back into history and they they find faults with people based on things that we now know were agreed things like slavery like people we now know worldwide that this was a terrible thing. This is a. This is a scar on humanity. That we've we've been a part of this but it but it just doesn't seem fair to go back and say that every human that ever was involved in that in any way was an evil person and at the same time. I'm i'm talking about boone and want to give him credit for all these things but we know there was this irony inside of his life for things that were done the native americans and you know we said that he owned a slave and not a whole lot is known about that. Can you speak to that. Discount like your personal thoughts on on how we can deal with that well. Historical revisionism is the fashion. Now and people won't to impose on the past the values and the judgments of the present and we should keep that in mind. You know our ideals and our ethics as we look at historical figures but we sit also be tolerant because we're all human beings and we all make mistakes and in the future. some historian may be looking at us. they inevitably will So do you also want to be more flexible and looking at these figures and not only see what they did wrong but to see what they did right and the case of boom to remember why he's important. I mean there's a reason he saw important in american culture and in fact in world culture. We shouldn't have it both ways. Yeah i think we should remember that. Daniel boone believe it or not raises a quaker actually had slaves at least one point and we should remember that we tend human beings to act the way other people are acting in a culture. That probably at that time. It's seen okay. 'cause everybody was doing it to realize that to remember that thomas jefferson owned slaves but the also hard slavery. The strange paradox. To remember that Boone did other things. It wasn't just owning a slave pride. So it's possible in what i'm hearing you say is that it's very possible for someone to in this same so contrary to what we hear happening in society today but it is possible for someone to have parts of their life that are very honorable and noble and then maybe have one section. That wasn't great and that one section doesn't cancel out the honorable and noble. I don't think we should look at people's lives just over one issue. I mean you've got to look at take the thing all around and away and Try to get some understanding of them as a human being with many facets At the same time you keep in mind the values of the president of course that a historian is looking at things through the lens of the present always and their own biases and values. But you can't be much of a historian or biographer. Unless you're able to also see things through the lens of that time otherwise you will be so limited and your approach you have to have this sympathetic imagination empathetic imagination so you can try to find out how those people saw things. How did the world look to rebecca boone to michael in a stone er- to simon kenton. What were they after. They trying to do of course. You can't do that perfectly. But the point of historical writing is to try to imagine what this was like what it had been like to have kentucky. They're in a week and say oh they destroyed the game. They bought slavery into kentucky. What was michael stoner. What was boom thinking of at that time and they were probably think of this great paradise the thing available distinct. There can go there i can. I can become a part of it. We cannot judge in our own time. What land meant to these scotch-irish emigrants who'd never had a foot of land. They could keep what that mid to here to.

"cumberland" Discussed on Bear Grease

"Of a product of erosion of rock. That's been uplifted to make them out. In the first place and erosion preferentially for example on the rocks that are weakest salako. She'll versus the granite If there are places where. The mountains rocks have been fractured. You might have faults that slid and they introduce the place where erosion can can happen in create that notch or gap that would allow people to pass through it Other places like if you're in the himalayas you'd have glaciers that are creating some of those notches that you could pass over in the term Notch gap pass applies universally. You can look across the us in the rockies up in canada in the appalachians and see similar features and not all of them are caused by the same things. The appalachians were the product of several mountain building events. But one that was really prominent Is what's called the guinean rajini when you take continental crust and other material and you collide it together to make a mountain belt. You end up producing faults where some rocks slide up on top of another in the pine mountain thrust is the main structure that brings part of the appalachians up on top of the adjacent rock. But then there are other faults in everyone's familiar with the san andreas fault for example and in that case rocks are actually sliding past each other on a very steep fault like a los angeles is now creeping towards san francisco for example and the vault unique in the cumberland gap. Kind of like that. It's a steep fault where rocks slid past each other called the rocky face fault. And if you didn't have the juxtaposition of the pine mountain thrust in the rocky face fault where the sit in intersect each other. It seems conceivable. You would never really had a gap larry. So there's two different major forces working together that created get to faults that occur right in that vicinity that helped create the gap and we talked about earlier. How the rock type matters to and some of the high ground that's held up along. The ridges is very resistant. Sandstone conglomerate rock and so it helps to have rocks that are more resistant weathering. What kind of map would you call this. You got pulled up your so. This is What's called a digital elevation model. And it's basically a three dimensional representation of what hunters would see as a topographic map. The i don't know if anybody knows about this but there is a huge impact crater that is just to the south west of what you're talking about. Is that a natural lake there at borough. No it's not a league it is. So here's the topographic map and you can see. It's a depression so he's described to you what i'm seeing. He's he's pointing at an impact crater which looks like i mean like an asteroid or something hit. There was that right. That is what the current thinking is that. Here's a geologic map and you can see. It's got this circular shape to it and there is Pretty decent evidence that post deposition these rocks and the appalachian rajini something smacks hard right there. And apparently this is one of the few places where coal is mined within an impact crater really. Yeah geologists call these impact. Craters astro blames daniel. Boone had three interesting structures to negotiate along with all of the native americans prior to him in everybody trying to make the trip across the appalachian two intersecting faults. An astro blame where an asteroid hit. Aided informing the cumberland gap. I like connecting human history to grand things like mountain building that we have absolutely no control over but inflict massive control. On us the cumberland gap is the biggest invest gap for one hundred miles in either direction enforces above and below the earth. Help make it that way. It's wild because no gap in the world has been more critical in building. An empire in the cumberland gap. The gap is actually pretty new to people of european descent but native americans have used it since before recorded history and they called it. The warriors path at the womanly. This gap connected the iroquois confederacy in the chair keys in the south. The first recorded account of europeans. Gone through the cumberland gap dates back to the sixteen seventy s but dr thomas walker officially named the gap. It's european name anyway in the seventeen. Fifty s wild and ironic. This american gap was named after a straight up english chump. The duke of cumberland because of his recent military escapade. And wouldn't you know what they named the whole stinking mountain range. After this man who never set foot in north america owed the injustice the shawnee however called the range wasi oto which means mountains where the deer are plentiful. I can get behind that. Dr walker was a medical doctor. Land speculator in a woodsmen. He took good notes of his seventeen. Fifty travels into kentucky they hauled a pack bear hounds with them and ate a lot of bear me. Here's a couple of wild stories. One of his men got bit on the knee by of bear. Pretty unfortunate walkers horse got snake bit on the nose and he rubbed it with bear grease to help cure it. not kidding. it's in his journal. Walker recorded killing thirteen buffalo's eight elk fifty-three bear twenty year. Four geese hundred fifty turkeys on their five month trip. In walker's men built a i log cabin. Constructed by white men in kentucky was no doubt quite the trip but very few remember doctor walkers name but do remember who crossed the gap almost twenty years later. I want to take you into the cumberland gap. You can go there yourself. This mountain pass maintained its relevance into modern times as a travel corridor as it eventually became modern. Us highway twenty-five the section of road was extremely treacherous. In the cumberland gap was notorious for tragic vehicle. Accidents claiming an average of five lives per year in this very short stretch of road however something good happened on october. Eighteenth nineteen ninety-six cumberland gap twin bore. Four lane tunnel was opened. Which burrows through cumberland mountain and in an incredibly encouraging feet they remove the concrete and asphalt highway that went through the old gap and re weilded and today it looks similar to what it looked like when only a single wagon lane trail passed through it. The gap. now sits in the cumberland state park. it's an incredible place. And i took my family there. So we are at the cumberland. Gap is the historic cumberland gap. We're in the cumberland gap right now. Take a picture with your mama marcus. Clad warrior battling civil war soldiers. Each was here in the historic cumberland gap. And now so.

"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself. You know if you kill by the palestinians you know it doesn't mean that you don't like jews you know if you're critical officially doesn't mean that you're antisemites if you are cup only fizzle and if the only people who care about our justice palestinians because you killed by nobody else. Don't get about. Muslims in china while being tortured by million. Your don't care about syria. Don't care about libya you don't care about lebanon. You don't care about you. Don't even know what happens in yemen. Of course you never heralded by the war in chechnya and and distorted opening their head about anything. Only but it's going to stadiums you know is that there's a problem and they interesting thing when when i went into states and talk to the people and i tied to figure out. Why only this issue bottles you know. Other they show from people is back know underneath it. The other side was fight. Independence genius he. So did choose members alleys jews and a hall of people or some people would say something like you know what you will high. I don't know why feedbacks why feel about palestinians and i don't feel about anybody else. I have to think about it not over the palestinians up. You know it's like when. I wanted to start with like anyone to my my wife.

Caring for someone with a mental health condition

"Number of resource is are available for you or for those who need care. It is incredibly stressful. Dealing with a loved one spouse sibling apparent. A child who is dealing with A mental health issue. And while you deal with those issues Please don't forget to to preserve preserve your your own own mental mental health health and and for for our our clinicians, clinicians, and and and and you you know, know, I I before before we we talk talk a a little little bit bit about about self self care care I I want want to to talk talk about, about, you know the danger of caring for somebody who has Mental illness or is in a mental health crisis because that can impact your own mental health. And that also has to be preserved. Doctor stroll, do you You want to talk about that a little bit? Absolutely. We have the metaphor. We used that when we're on a plane, and if the air mass come down, they say, Put the air mask on yourself. If you're a parent, put it on yourself first, before you take care and put the air you know the mask on the Children who family members around you. And so it's ah, a good metaphor to use that the mass we're using now included But it it's just take care of yourself. It's very important that you're doing that self care and you are allowing yourself not to feel guilty or feel bad about that that we do have to create and carve time for ourselves. You're coping to care for the loved ones around us, especially if our loved ones are going through a mental health crisis right now that we want to advocate them for them. We want to support them. But you also have to make sure that we're helping her. Ourselves. Dr Jones. You know, that kind of goes back to what you were saying in our opening comments you know about the impact of the stress is not just on our loved ones, but but on us, too, is we're trying to care for them. You know, there are several coping strategies that we can use the five senses for if we're parents or care givers, working with someone or loving someone really Was coping with a mental illness. We can look at old pictures. We can read books. We can squeeze a stress ball. You can pet your animal a nan Immel or companion and stretch your muscles and one thing about stretching muscles. It's really very important to get good sleep. 7 to 9 hours a night is a really wonderful Sideline, and if we exercise for 10 to 20 minutes with stretching or yoga before we go to sleep, chances are we'll be able to sleep in a more sound way. We can smell fresh flowers. Oils, Campbell's perfume. We can listen to music. We can meditate. We can listen to nature sounds, we can find those on YouTube with no problem. And when we're looking at Movies or TV. You want to stay away from news that can be compounding when we talk about stress and maybe even a focus on some of the things that make us laugh. Because laughter can be healing actually, and with regard to tasting, we can eat. Minced or horrible teeth. All of these things may seem rather simple. But they're very practical ways to bring joy into our lives. And that's a good way of keeping balance when they're trying to care for someone who's in crisis, and Dr Tobias, you know for a parent, you know that that has a child that is is struggling. And certainly we've seen that happen with the With the remote learning, Um that's a pain like no other for a child for a parent to see a child suffer. Absolutely, because you know you're emotionally connected to your child. So you're going to empathize with them one of the things I would have to say that parents, you know we've talked about you know you take the health care. I agree completely. Seekers. When you're empathizing with someone, you're feeling their feelings, and so if you're kind of like taking on their emotions on top of your own difficulties. That's really going to put you over the edge, and you're not gonna be in a position to help anybody. Um, one of the things In addition to those other wonderful suggestions is for people, not toe neglects social connections, You know, Ironically, that's something that was difficult. That's what's causing our stresses that we're socially isolated from others because human beings are social animals were meant to be with other people. And so if you're handling We're trying to handle. You know a stress within your family. You can't do that alone. I really have a lot of empathy for single parents, um, and who are dealing with kids with mental health issues. And they need to reach out. You know you you you know, the expression takes a village to raise a child. Well, unfortunately, that's true. It does take a village to raise a child. You know, a family can't do this by themselves. So, you know, reach out Tonto. Their family members toe unison, the support groups that have been mentioned. Um But I really hope that no parent feels like the burden of caring for the child is on their shoulders alone because nobody can do this alone in parents need to reach out. For the support from others. Well, and as we saw talked about in the in the very beginning is you do not need to suffer alone it and you know, as As a parent who has dealt with some of these issues you know, with with a member of my family, you think when you're in the middle of it, that it's you're the only one that this has ever happened to that nobody could possibly relate, And there's a shame that there that's involved and there's you know there. But that is so not true. This is more common than I think people even believe. Right, And that's a great where where NAMI comes in the national alignments of mental in this like you mentioned, we have support groups for families, and what we like to say, my colleague says, is that self care is giving the best of you not what's left of you. And when we have our family support groups and you go into a room where you've actually see people come in and their tents and they're scared and like you, said, Eric, They think they're the only one there. The first person who has a loved one. Who's experiencing immense illness and you sit in a room or in this case, you sit online and you see the boxes on your screen and you hear people who know what you're talking about. Who felt what you felt. Who's seen what you've seen. You actually see people, their shoulders come down. They start to breathe and going to support groups and NAMI has three family support groups online a week. And three support groups for individuals who live with mental illness every single week. You know, you have to reach out and like you said, Eric, you're not alone. We say nominee Jersey that you are not alone. And at this time, it's particularly you may be socially distant. But that does not mean that you'd have to be emotionally distant or isolated. We have new ways of connecting and some of the amazing things. And opportunities we have through online is we have support groups now where someone from Bergen can be giving advice to someone from Cumberland. And that wouldn't have happened before this, So I really encourage people to understand that you were absolutely not alone. Especially now. You know, you might not be able to You know there's huggers and us here, miss Hugging, but you can reach out and a lot of different ways, including online and really looked for those support groups because there are people who know what you're going through and are ready to help you.

That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us. We play acoustic guitars and the humor isn't as much when with the banter between us as it is with the humor's actually in songs so that's called. The uncle moldy show. And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking. That came out of the back You've also seen me this year on kimmy versus the reverend if you haven't seen that movie it's based on the unbreakable kimmy schmidt and it's there's a scene where kimmy and tight us. The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance. I believe as well. I'm excited about that. I'm also appeared on gotham. I wish unseasoned. Five episode eight played one of the penguins henchman named dale. I was shot to death in the third scene. I was in. And i've also done a number of discovery. Id shows and some mom commercials down here in maryland. When i was starting out and everything. I'm also years ago.

After that when the hairband started going out we were called orange seed parade we played. Cbgb's in new york a number of times. And you know open for a couple of national acts over the years.

Avidan castillo routine about the susquehanna company. All right right squad at company there may have been years ago but the majority of there's only a couple of miles of the susquehanna bets in maryland and it actually goes all the way up to near upstate new york so there could be something on the way you know that river goes through lancaster and harrisburg and it goes quite a ways up.

City were infections were surging there and working in intensive care unit but now she seeing troubling echoes of that earlier stage in the pandemic it own hospital when we don't have staff because they're out sick or out quarantine then we've got people who are picking up extra shifts and we have people working long long hours many days in a row and that was something i did when i was in new york and i didn't i didn't make it my full twenty one days just because i was so sick and so tired because i work that many days in a row of twelve hour shifts now. We don't work eighteen days straight of twelve hour shifts but we will work a lot of extra hours a lot of extra days. Everybody has banded together as a team. I think you're going to see that in any organization especially this one where i work within the last probably eight weeks. We have seen a huge spike in cases and it has had a profound effect on what we want to do and what we can do both in that there are high high numbers of infected people in our communities many of whom are winding up coming to our hospital but we also have staff members who get infected with covid and then they can't work but even as elizabeth and her colleagues have banded together. She struggles with the number of people in her community. Who continue choosing not to wear masks. It's i don't wanna say hurtful. Because i think that people who decide not to wear masks are not necessarily trying to be hurtful. I think a lot of those people simply don't understand the truth of the situation or choose not to believe the truth of the situation and when that affects my coworkers in the way it has. I find it quite upsetting because i believe i work with the best healthcare professionals in the country in the world i feel like they're sacrificing themselves to some degree for people who for whatever reason don't want to believe it's as big a problem as it is. It hurts my heart to see such really wonderful professionals. Having to put themselves on the line time just trying to get through in the community without getting

New York - N.J. Should Be More Aggressive In Stopping COVID-19 Spread, Epidemiologists Say

"Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Along with New York Governor Cuomo and four other governors from neighboring states are holding an emergency covert 19 summit this weekend. To consider possible coordinated actions. It's happening as epidemiologists are concerned about the spike in covert cases in New Jersey, where more than 3000 new cases are being reported each day WN Y sees Nancy Solomon reports. Jersey hasn't seen consistently high numbers like this since last April, And when cases first started surging last month. Officials like Health Commissioner Judy Person, Kelly pointed to private gatherings is the primary culprit. Recent gatherings, many of which were a Halloween parties. Have led to nearly 70 cases in union plaster. Somerset Essex in Cumberland County's now new data from the Health Department that looked at the cause of infections in October, found that a third of cases were traced to team sports. Another large source was the workplace. Yet Governor Phil Murphy says he's reluctant to shut down non essential businesses or sports that don't involve out of state travel. Three New Jersey based epidemiologists contacted by W. N Y. C. Say the state is that a dangerous point, particularly with hospitalizations also spiking upward. They say that in order to keep schools and essential businesses open the state should be restricting indoor dining bars and social gatherings. I'm also surprised that We haven't seen more action taken on in terms of restrictions. Stephanie Silveira is a professor at Montclair State University. She says she's particularly concerned about food service workers who earn low wages and often don't have health insurance. Another looming problem is Thanksgiving, says Rutgers University epidemiologist Henry Raymond. I think it's really going to be hard to imagine that everyone is gonna Stay home with their own Todd or bubble and not want to get together with cousin Harry or Uncle Fred Raymond work for a city public Health Department before becoming a professor. So he says he understands how difficult it is to balance public policy with science. In spite of numbers increasing statewide, the governor has said his team would take what he called a surgical approach to combating the second wave. To that end, he announced this week that individual towns and cities can order non essential businesses to close by 8 P.m..

They just don't make any more and isn't an illusion of glasses and haircuts or our genes really changing such that there are nine hundred twenty s JAL owns that. Don't exist anymore. I'm yeah. I wonder. This a lot do to. If you look at a photograph of like a college team from one thousand nine hundred ten you don't recognize a lot of those faces their faces you've never seen before. Do you ever? See Timea face, right? Sometimes walking around. Do you ever notice old tiny facing? Sure, I will just see a throwback guy on the bus and be like, oh my arm. It's like from the dust bowl from the twenty-seven Yankees, Georgia Tech. I think he's a little embarrassed by the legacy of their. It's not a good look today to run up four. Yeah. Sure. It should be embarrassed. Where's the Noblesse OBE? Lease some guy writing a book about the about the incident was told in no uncertain terms by Georgia Tech that they were not going to cooperate or be interviewed. All really. Yeah. But Cumberland actually has really embraced it. It's probably one of the even one hundred years later. It's probably one of the things that are most famous for. And there's one school of thought that this might have saved the school that if they had lost that seventy thousand dollars. Maybe they could not have made that university in tight financial states could not have made. Payroll really, and that by sending these sacrificial lambs down to Georgia to get their asses kicked that the college was therefore saved by the scrappy nerds of fee. Delta Kappa, whatever it was. Well, thank goodness. We still have a Cumberland university. Right. Who would be guarding that side of Nashville who would be guarding the gap right there, far from the gap. Weirdly that was that true. Yeah. Nashville is in the center of Tennessee, and Cumberland gap is well to the east is Levin and Tennessee right outside Nashville imprint there, so why why did Heisman go on to be the namesake of the most famous trophy in college football. He became an you're gonna continue to be instrumental college coach at Georgia Tech. They they became one of the greatest teams in the southern US. They actually beat Auburn something they'd never been able to do for years. And he was behind a lot of the rule changes that you know, he he must've eventually caught onto the forward pass. Even though he didn't need it in this game. He was one of the main proponents of legalizing the forward pass much of the modern game of football. We owe to him looking at his statistics. He has a pretty good career record one hundred and eighty six wins seventy ties and eighteen losses. Seventy ties that tells you something about old football yield and days while three two three let's Saul shake hands. But he also insanely was head football coach at Oberlin, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech university of Pennsylvania, Washington, and Jefferson and rice he was the head coach at all those kind of famous. Football league leather in schools. Also, this is one of those cases where it's like, Mr. boycott, Mr. shrapnel or the Roderick stool, right? He had the bad luck to die or good luck to die the year after the downtown athletic club had created it's college football trophy rights, and they were like, oh, no John Heisman the greatest will name the trophy after him. So it was like during the week that prince died and every white person you met had to tell you how much prince meant to them. Right. Well, as a sign of their woke us and bona fide, I was actually awarded the prince trophy last year. Is that right? Congratulations. Thank you, funky white guy. Are you going to have to go steal it back? Like OJ did with his husband. No, I don't intend to murder anyone later in my career. And you're gonna keep the trophy. You're going to be the funky est.

"John Heisman was the coach of the Georgia Tech, yellow jackets. He also coached the baseball team, interestingly and the basketball team, and he had a yellow jacket in his bonnet about from Cumberland college, a small private liberal arts college in Lebanon, Tennessee still there to this day because they had recently beaten his baseball squad twenty two zero a lacking and later came out that they had done. So fraudulently that the Cumberland baseball team had recruited professional players from the Nashville area, local semi pro players, which at the time, I guess people were always just looking for an edge college for sports, not being regulated as they were today that seems like something you would be able to settle with a gunfight. Well, yeah. That too. But but no that you would be able to discern it by recognizing that these are. Well, think about in an age where we assume everybody goes to college but back then a bunch of college age athletes were probably playing on the local pro or barnstorming team. You're saying. Yeah. Of course, anyway, the next year following this shameful baseball loss, mash style, crooked baseball loss Heisman has been plotting revenge. So he arranges for Georgia Tech to play a football match against Cumberland. The problem is in the interim Cumberland is facing budget problems, and they cancelled their entire athletic program. Seems unfair. What a school would do today, if they had athletic if they had money problems today, you just expand or wait until Trump weakens title, nine enough to cancel your women's program or something but back, then I guess sports. We're not a cash cow. So it was just like, well, we're we're out of money can't have sports anymore is that. Okay. So so did they just cancel the game? Heisman says, absolutely not. That is not okay. This game is growing schemes out Georgia Tech. This is a money maker for us. You need to pay us three thousand dollars. If you forfeit this game, which again, multiply by twenty or twenty five to get the amount in modern money. It's a chunk of change that Cumberland did not have right Heisman really wants to play this game. He really wants his sweet revenge. Yeah. Because he's still mad about the baseball game. And he says I will actually pay you five hundred dollars again, multiply by twenty or twenty five to cover your expenses to get a team together and bring it up here. I don't care if you don't have enough. Programs like we're going to have a good. We're gonna have a football game. This seems fun. This seems like the premise of an eighties teen comedy, right? Like we've got to get a team together like get booger and in the eighties team comedy. Cumberland would win right, right. They would I know they would either cheat or discover flubber there'd be our dog on the team. There'd have they have some kind of radio the nerds would invent some kind of radio that a wins than the game. I hate to break it to your job at that does not necessarily happen here. Always root for the underdog. Cumberland is definitely the underdog here. The former student manager of the football team now without a football team gets his frat brothers together. Plus a few law students, plus just a few local guys from Nashville again and says, hey, you guys want to go to Georgia Tech. And a lot of them have never been on a train before. So they're like boy Howdy. I do like three prebaked Asian to Georgia. So these guys get their midnight train to Georgia and he's got a team together. Of course, it's still in violation of school rules against having inter inter mural athletics. But they're making five hundred bucks. So the school should be at least pleased that they're not. They're not out of pocket in the historical record. It seems like the school is not seeing any of the five hundred bucks because the manager actually goes to the crusty old dean and tells him he's just running men's choir. Like, yeah, we got immense quite maybe maybe they're all winking in the school's getting a kickback. I don't know. But officially this is a these are men's choir, rehearsals, and amends. Choir trip. And when the choir meets on the you know football local football field. None of them really know how to run a football team manager doesn't have any place to run. He doesn't have an idea..

My God, we don't get to the point fast enough. We'll vs guys ever stop rambling. They haven't even talked about the topic yet. Well, these guys ever have a nice bullet pointed list of things about their topic that they can then cover in order. Let me explain to people that are still listening to this show.

You were in sports radio is from Renton. Now, we can talk as long as we won't about anything when you can you can listen to something else. But was it. Good for us as a culture the to what infinite storage the ability to ramble endlessly. No, not not as a culture. But but I think it's good for you. And me in the context of this show. I've said that it seems like a novelty that football is the most popular sport in America. But in fact in the early twentieth century where we lay our scene when baseball essentially had a monopoly on pro sports. It was not the number one attended sport. In america. Baseball wasn't no the very early years of the twentieth century, college football, drew so many more attendees than baseball. And it was because of what you say your loyalty, then was not to your city or to your Yankees to your squad. It was to your alma mater, your old your beloved alma mater that you would sing about right in in four part. Harmony you went back every homecoming he Lord..
