Gonna tell you Filled in for mark a lot on this program, and I used to do the program myself before Mark came over. And Friday is always just kind of a glad day. You know, we talk about movies talk about weekend stuff. We kinda glide on this is not feeling that way today. Mike is taking your feet off the Ottoman. We've got the governor giving a news conference right now, and it's on the travel advisers. You just heard mentioned in the news, and we're monitoring that. So if it gets into a subject matter that is of greatest interest to all of us will. Cut there. We've got the president who has been largely quiet since the election. Basically last several days, he's got a news conference at one o'clock will monitor that. See if it's something we should pick up on. It's just Oh, and Personal problems. I mean, life is different into the pandemic. The dog needed to see that today. What do you think the chances are of the vet being available to see the dog? Uh, I have never. Everything's changing the pandemic. We know that And we know that health care has changed, but Honey, your little aren't one year old dog develops of tremendous high infection basically is one eyed right now. And so we call our regular vet, and we get voicemail. Well due to the pandemic. We're not seeing animals, right? Great. I'm going. Wait a minute. I understand. Yeah, Things have changed in medicine, and I've got to play by new rules if I need to see my doctor, but my doctor still available to me, even if it's telemedicine. But My dog's health. The vet is pretty much responsible for so why it can't hear she be available, right? So we get on the phone. And the vets office messages. If you have a nerd urgent need, you need to call one of the urgent clinics and well, it's not urgent. It's an eye infection. It's not an emergency. But ultimately Viki gets on the phone and finds a vet down there. McAdam. Near for Kate. Yes, used to be, and the vet is able to see the dog and determines He's got a bad thing on his eye that they cut away and he needs eyedrops for $90, of course, and He's got one of those cones on his head now, which he absolutely hates. We've been through this before. But I never dreamed the urgent The emergency places we call even. They said, You've got a four hour wait. Get your dog taking care of so light going on personally, Um, you tell me we've been exchanging calls with the Canadian Broadcasting company today. CBC. They wanted an interview about the whale little bit late Canada. Did they call back? Mike is they did And they said up. Sorry. We're late. We'll get you next year. Okay, So we're off book without one I wanna thank carry Tim Chuck and the staff of the Oregon Historical Society for the event last night. It was all about the 50th anniversary of the exploding whale. You know, supposed to be a live event, but it turned out to be like everything else these days Zoom event. And Mike. It was incredible. Yeah, I was gonna ask you how that went. It really went. Well, it's estimated. All told we had about 1000 participants. Wow. And when they start checking in On the screen. You can see who's checking in from where the name and the city It was just so cool. They flash that fast by, but we had participants in Australia. In Canada. Montreal, Toronto. Um does in Canada Houston, ST Paul, Chicago, Nashville. All over the country, and it was really engaging. And Terry carry Tim check. Did the interviewing of myself and Doug Brazil. Who is the photographer who shot the exploding? Well, yeah, really, You know, I had grown weary. We've done so many interviews with media outside of Portland this week. Happily, so I mean, it's fun to, you know, get the attention. Frankly. Can I put you on the spot? Yeah. Okay about the whale. Yeah. What's the one question? Every reporter asks you What did it smell like? And what's One of the best questions you're ever asked. Um This is asked a lot, too, but I think it's funny. How much money have you made off thing? And yeah, and Channel two owns it. And they own the rights to it. I don't neither this Doug Brazil, and if you haven't heard us talk about this before the weekend of 50 years ago, we sent the story on the ABC news for the national newscast and Unions dictate how much you're paid when you do so, and he made, I think $117 I made $105 is that was the total is he stayed in focus. What people never asked me about is what's the best thing that's happened to you as a result of the whale, and I guess you'd have to say, well, it xgames in something that people want to talk to you about. Over all these years. It's Yeah, Most people aren't remembered for much, and you're remembered for something, even if it's a ugly, old dead whale. But the best thing that has happened to me and to my wife is that it's meant traveling Europe the lecture about it at a graduate school in Italy a few times, which is near Venice. Don't I think the last time we went. We didn't even get out of the airport hotel to go up to the village where the school is. We didn't go to Venice and we've been there. So, basically what you're saying is that you got to enjoy the frequent flyer miles from the business trip. Well, and very nice honorarium. And there was there was good money involved with that. So my thanks to the Consortium Institute of Management and Business Analysis in Oslo, Italy, for inviting us over a few times, But it was it was an engaging night last night, and it's one of those things. My son, Jason came over and helped with the lighting. So you know, I didn't look like complete digital failure. And the Dan look good. I thought background was fine. Yeah, they didn't want me there. No. Okay. No, I don't like We've had this conversation before in your head. When you see these reporters with the me's lined up behind him. It's like, Oh, stop it that we get so so so I don't do that. But what did you hear back from CBC? We haven't had a chance to talk about that. Yeah, they'll catch up. Catch up with you on the fifth anniversary. So you're serious? It was happening. All right. They apologize. They were a day late. And the dollars short. All right. I hope you're not suffering from Triska. Death. Triska Deca phobia today fear of things having to do with number 13. Research shows that million suffer from this phobia. And then AP says, Because of it, many will even stay home from work like that. Let's go. We're all stayed home from work. Experts say if people are actually safer on Friday, the 13th because they're more cautious if you suffer from the fear of 13 trying to gain more control of your life, says one expert, she says. When we looked the other things on our lives to tell us where we should be that can lead to anxiety and trigger phobia. No, it sure where. The legend of Friday the 13th began. But it's really, really old like the guy who covered oil 50 years ago, and we'll get to the important stuff on the Mark.

A new chip architecture won't affect ram usage by four x. Also if you're using sixty four gigs right now you probably want a workhorse computer and there are two that indicate that the m one computers are just not ready to be workhorses yet. I think the sixteen gig ram limit and two fewer usb ports indicate. The chipset can't handle that same throughput. If the one where a car i would say. That apple launched the tesla model s. But it's not a truck yet and if you want the apple cyber trek chipset think you have to wait. Yeah i think you're right paul. I think that's why you still have the intel based mac minis that you can get higher ram on in there and i think apple's intention is to either put out models with higher ram or possibly an m. to chip a more a more Cyber truck like chipset. That's that's kind of what i expect when we get the round of updates that bring apple silicon to the mac pro and the i back and the fifteen inch macbook or sixteen inch macbook pro. So so yeah. I like that comparison to the model and the truck. I think that's apt.

"It's been fifty years to the day when crews blew up a dead whale that beached itself in florence oregon but the detonation turned into a debacle when large chunks rather than fine fragments started to rain down on the area even crushed a car. Fortunately no one was hurt. But the now infamous story left. Paul linneman with k tv covered in fish bits gross and he recently sat down with brian bowl to talk about being assigned to the wail of a tail. Way back in nineteen seventy. I didn't want to cover the story. To begin with. I was a young reporter. I was twenty three years old. By that time i had already covered presidential. Primary and oregon. I covered an all-night negotiating session when the oregon state penitentiary was on fire on the unmade. Sick over in a riot and having a great time yohe early in my career and then the director called me and said why. Don't you go to the coast. Cover the story and so what he what are you talking about. Well they're going to dispose of oil down. There and i said can somebody else do that. He said they're going to use dynamite. I said when do we go. They put us on a private aircraft at the station. At least and i had never heard of that happening before. So i thought this is a pretty big deal. The oregon state highway division not only had a problem on its hands. It had a stinky whale of a problem. Sure enough it took place much as we expected as it would in the explosion. You've seen it before and you probably have it. Looks like any exposure you see in the movies and so forth and so that part of it was expected what wasn't expected was that it would blow oil parts all over everybody. That was there then. It became kind of scary. There is a feeling on the part of myself and the photographer. Doug brazil that we were running for our lives is very dense material. Hit the ground around us up until that moment it went as planned in to this day i refer to it as the whale that refuses to die because it's been a part of my life virtually every day in the last fifty years. Somebody's mentioned that to me in one way or another. By the way you talk about being a reporter at twenty three already done these very remarkable stories at the same time many reporters fill that they are going to be remembered for one story for better or worse. Do you feel that. You've been branded with swail story. I suppose in certain ways i am. I've gotta tell you brian. I've gone up and down with how i feel about the oil over the years there were times ten fifteen twenty years ago where i just as soon it not be ever mentioned to me again. I was really really tired of it. But then i got over that and i kind of accepted what was going to continue to happen in my life as a result of that one story and my bottom line conclusion is most of us even reporters who very good worker not remembered at all. So if you remember for anything that's a pretty good deal. Mine is kind of silly remembrance. But i'll take it sprang. The city of florence actually announced new namesake for one of its city parks turns out. It's being called exploding whale memorial park as curious if he had been out there or not. I have not my wife. And i were asked to be grand marshals of the rhododendron festival parade in. May that was canceled We did a virtual parade and send down some video and then When they announced the the name of the new park which is along the river. By the way and it's nowhere near the explosion site on the beach. The river changed its course and revealed some land that they made into a park and that became the exploding memorial park. I'm supposed to go down this month for another plaque unveiling at the actual site and that's been canceled as well or postponed. So i haven't been down there yet. But i will tell you. I was interviewed by reporter from devonshire scotland. At the time that park was named for the town council. you may have read. This was using the unveiling of the park and the story of the whale is a warning to its citizens during cova to take every precaution. Now i had not heard about that. That's amazing at certainly has a life of its own. I'm guessing paul when you and i both love this earth fifty more years from now. Let's say that they'll still be talking about it. It's very very possible. I still enjoy talking to people that might recognize me from my work and television and whatnot and they always say the same thing. I don't care if it's eight o'clock in the morning i'll say. Hey i'm the. I dimensioned the whale to you today. And i'll say no the guy half hour go starbucks Brought it up so your second and so. I'm resigned answering any and all questions. I possibly can and if it's still happening fifty years from now they're just gonna have to guess what might have happened. Well paul thank you so much for your time. And i really appreciate the fact that your career did not end. Nineteen one thousand nine hundred seventy under cascading chunk of whale blubber. And it sounds like you've gone onto some very good things. Pass that incident so thank you again. My pleasure great questions and thanks for having me on and again that was k- elsie sees brian bowl talking to former k eighteen tv reporter.

"Mark Mason Show. If you're wondering what the big deal is about Oregon's exploding whale, which happened 50 years ago. Today, it's the fact that it's become a legendary Oregon story. I've lectured personally about it. In Europe. It's been shown in every country. Nobody really knows how many times has been viewed. I chuckle it articles that say at least a million times. No. I've read at least 345 million times. Recently on YouTube alone, six million views one day four million views another. It's the fifth most watched video in history, according to BBC. That was in 2006 is huge worldwide, and we rarely if it all here from the guy responsible for it, that would be photographer Doug, Brazil. We were both in early twenties and K to when we were sent to Florence to cover this story. We thought it was kind of goofy on our way. We didn't have any idea what might happen. And so Doug. Brazil joins us today and for the first time I asked you Doug, I don't think I have ever done this. What was your take away from? What happened? Being the guy who shot it? Well, well, my major Keiko Oy, What's the smell? A good overall, The story seemed obviously pretty unusual and the things that we encountered after the explosion occurred and the stuff was raining down upon us and considering the potential I mean, it was a death threat practically that Was in my mind a lot, but The biggest thing I took away. It's just I can't I can't forget the smell and the right back in the airplane. It's largely been called the world's first viral video. I don't know that anybody knows how many views it's had. I've seen 340 million in a couple of sites. The BBC in 2006 said. It was the fifth most watch video in history. But let's assume you are responsible for the world's first viral video. No photographers. Work I know of has received greater attention. Does that make you feel as a professional? Well, I don't know that the particular story is a professional highlight, but It's certainly something that is humbling to think that's something that we put together 50 years ago as brother young journalists eyes pretty interesting in light of the fact that all the other things that have happened over the last 50 years and yet it still continues to draw an audience. Like you say, nobody really knows how many. It appears on so many different sites that you'd have to go to each one to see how many hits there are. But you know, it was easy to come up with 11 million just by looking at a couple of YouTube site so on. Obviously, these people are folks that repeat, they go back and look at this thing again. And I've seen it more than once, But I don't think I need to see it again. I'm with you on that. Why do you think Has lived on in such matter that and people are willing to go back and see it repeatedly. What is it about that video that captivates people? It makes them want to watch it. Well, you're probably not gonna like this. But the fact of the matter is that there was an explosion of blood for whale. There was some danger involved that the falling Glover there was a car damage, but the narrative that went with it the way you told the story. You told it into just very straightforward journalistic manner that there's no playing around with words too much. Not too much anyway. And and so people look at this thing as a serious story and get this background of this is real humor to it potentially tragic, but it ended up not being and everybody lived through it. Well, dream on offer got money for his car and everything was fine. I appreciate your comments. I totally disagree. I think it's the picture, not the words. You and I could discuss that for the next 50 years. Yeah. Are you celebrating the day in any particular way? The 50th anniversary. You got big plans. I know you and I can't go to Florence. Because we're not. We can't travel right now, but we're gonna do Right? Well, we're going down to the coast. But will that be down in escrow in and I think obviously we'll have this little interview with the folks at the Oregon Historical Society. Um and, um, so I know on the Whale day will be down there at the coast, although not in Florence, and I think it'll just be a very quiet, you know, dinner and glass of wine or something, but there's not much else to do regarding this particular event. Duggan, his partner, have a place there. I should point out. It's not like you're just a tourist visiting Mexico and, um Right. Do you wish it would go away? Would you just assume not talk about it anymore? No. I mean, it's interesting First of all of the great called 50 years ago. That's pretty important on and and I enjoyed the fact that there's some attention about it. And it was something that was not a tragedy. So many of the things that we covered in TV news ended up was people being hurt? S o. This was one for that didn't happen and that it lives on and people laugh about it. I I'm still good with it. All right. Finally, the question. I haven't been able answer Well over all these years..

"I thought we're gonna talk about this. It's Tonya Harding's birthday. Oh, Okay. I've got the time you Harding bite here somewhere even to yourself If he bit you, that's your business. No, it's time You hired his birthday and we share. We have a commonality. Tanya and I have interviewed in the past. Jeff Gillooly know the whale? I mean, 50 years ago today, the whale blew up on Tonya Harding's birthday. And I'm I'm thinking, huh? I don't know, Mike. You should find out. She's 50. I don't know. I think Tanya and I ought to get together tonight for a couple of nonalcoholic beers Right here. We go here, and I knew I had something from her in this book For the first time you you reaffirm that you weren't involved in the actual attack. But you said it's too far, she says, Go to hell in it. Oh, okay. I didn't have a cute I was with Tanya's former coach. Not long ago, Vicki and I had dinner with her and her husband and The stories they tell. I mean, she should have never taken that plea bargain thing, but that's a whole nother thing. That's a whole another thing. I am talking about the whale and autumn. You're my life is upside down and has been for a few days. Bread. I don't think I've interviewed as many people on the Mark Mason show this week as have interviewed me this week about the whale, which is a nice thing, but I get you know everybody in the news business he's talking right now. Including and journalists in Argentina, who tried to connect with me this morning. I successfully avoided it. E just have no more time. But Here just just locally. The Oregonian print version. Douglas Perry had a very nice article about looking back the wheel 50 years later and on the inside of a front page of the Oregonian and It was also in Oregon Live yesterday or the day before, So I unsuccessfully avoided that article twice. But that was good. And then the been bulletin to writers dead. Hickson and Jared Anderson wrote a really nice piece entitled the headline The Tale of the Whale that went kaboom 50 years later. The blast scene around the Internet. Subhead was a quirky chapter in American culture, and they mentioned things in their article that I didn't know or don't remember. Really? Yeah. Well and I think there's a couple of reasons why. First of all, my memory is sagging. And second of all, I've never had a good memory or I have a lazy memory. I guess that's what the experts would say. But there were a number of years where I Really wanted to avoid everything having to do with the exploding oil. Yeah, And so I didn't pay attention to a lot of the stuff that was written a lot of stuff that was sent around. I didn't respond to a lot of requests for information, and I just had a bad attitude about it. I got over it. And so now I pick up the bend bullets an article and I read that, um, there were several pop culture things that happened as a result of the whale they blew up in in Florence 50 years ago. Today. Saturday Night Live apparently did a parody referencing a beach blanket bingo parody that had the whale in it. That was in 2014 and 2010. I don't remember this. The Simpsons? Uh, no. The animated Syriza's the town. People blew up a big blue whale with dynamite, which is really shocking to me because Lisa Graining, who we worked with the channel to was Bart Bart, Matt Simpson's sister back training system at Granny's sister. And why I didn't know about that when it happened on the Yeah. Citizens. Um, I don't know. And then their article also pointed out that the exploding will has worked its way into vernacular. A zoo writers in the bend Bullets and point out sometimes used as a phrase describing an idea that seemed like a good idea at the time, but ended in disaster. I didn't I didn't know that I don't know people were doing that. So people keep sending me things online this morning. I'm getting e mails from people haven't heard from for years that air thinking I haven't remembered. It's a 50% Did you know? Yeah. So they're steady me their comments. But one I was really surprised. My oldest son, Darren. Really keeps up on social media better than I do said that Seth Meyers tweeted about it. Oh, really late night, NBC guy and so he sent me the tweet. And here's what Seth Meyers tweeted yesterday. I mean, we're still going to do a show tonight, but this is the best thing you'll see all day and then he linked it to the way. Seth Meyers. That's pretty cool. Yahoo news Quoted a New York Times reporter who was tweeting about it. And this New York Times reporter named Mike Baker tweeted. This story is surely one of the greatest local TV news segments of the century. That's New York Times got cool? Yeah, so that's that's good. Um, I got to tell you about my experience with Kgw Channel too, of course, big kind of up with myself and the photographer who recorded the Exploding, while Doug Brazil who you'll hear from shortly with a long zoom interview. I was both and used that for whatever they did 11 o'clock last night and online. I didn't step and watch it. I forget to record it. I'm sure I can find it. But K g W. Has been trying for a couple of days to talk to us. Joe binary over there, and we agreed to zoom interviews at certain times. But they asked Doug and I generally did. Do you have copy the whale weaken? Use this well, it's all over the Internet going to use it. So are nervous about copyright and channel two owns it. Yeah, it's been Pirated. So many thousands of times television stations. Networks across the country have shown this thing without any permission from Channel two. Well, they made the mistake of calling Channel two and they were told. No, you can't use it. Well, it makes some sense for my friends and my former employer channel to to say no. I mean, why wouldn't you want to Channel two story on Channel eight right that you do so Joran ery contacted us this morning said Sorry. We couldn't get the video. So we're not gonna do anything. But I was told that something happened on China Lee on the whale last night, so I got a line and I found out that Dan Haggerty, who does this half hour called story last night at seven o'clock. Went ahead and explained the Channel eight had asked Channel two. Can we use that? Well, Video on Channel two had said no. So here's what's next best, and he drags out a whiteboard. It's election night whiteboard and he draws of whale you know, with any with sharp here with her, and then he makes explosion lines and tells the story. I was actually more captivated by Dan's version than my own. I couldn't believe he was doing that. That's great, so it just lives on and on and on. But you know, the guy you've never heard from about this is the guy who took the video. My friend Doug, Brazil. He and I had such fun it as a young reporter and photographer going around covering stories important and not for the years and we'll find out what he thinks. Is important to take away from.

What did you do? He hung out in Alaska playing in the snow. What were you telling me? I did this morning. What did you do? You ran a typewriter. What are you, my son? What did you do in the war? Daddy? I made a mistake during artillery training. Let me just leave. There was an incident We don't talk about. Well, I'm willing to talk about it. I've gotten over it. I was at Fort Sill, Oklahoma in artillery training with the Army. And I set the tube wrong on $155 for one day and the the shell kind of bounce on the ground a little early, and it seemed to spare a lot of people retailing for sure. And after they got through swearing at me, you'll appreciate this. Mike, the first sergeant said. What can you do? And I said, Well, not much. I guess. He said. What you doing real life? I said I'm a reporter, he said, Can you type And I said faster than anyone on this post, he said. You are mine and from that day forward as the other guys towed those big, nasty guns out to the cold. Firing ranges of Fort Sill. I went of the early room with my cigarette and cup of coffee, and I typed and I typed as I was walking around with the camera on my shoulder and a recorder on my back, they said. There's room for him. 16. Well, of course, so I could still hear it. All. Good soldier always has his weapon. One seriously, Thank you and happy Veteran's day to all those who served I spent Ah good amount of time this morning online and in print. Reading the stories of veterans and I didn't really realize it, but You know how many veterans served and just how many servicemen People serve just in World War 2 16 million rounds. 16 Million Can you imagine? But Tom Hallman Jr. Who writes in there, going in on this guy he has written Such good stories or so many years. He's writing about one of the veterans don't mention in just a moment, but points out in his article near Oregonian and Oregon live today. Nearly 400 World War, two vets die. Every day, nearly 400. Fewer than 300,000 are still alive. I didn't even know there were that many still alive. This. He's quoting U S. Department of Veterans affairs, and he points out when they go, their stories die. So he tells the story today of Dean Tate, who was Ah Newberg resident who joined the Air Force after Pearl Harbor was attacked. And Didn't really when he came home didn't really share and later had a family and a career and all that didn't really share anything about his military career. His daughter said. He didn't really identify as a vet. And so she did nothing about it until he passed away and her mother was gone and she had to clean out the stuff. She found a box of letters and other memorabilia from his world war to experience and found out he was Obama dear, and his bomber got shot down over France. He was rescued by a Belgian teenage girl who lived in Nazi occupied France who took him to her house, her family and he along with the other airman that they rescued. They worked their way family by family back to the coast of France so that they could be Picked up by allies and his daughter's name is Susan Tate, a Cockney and she has written a book about it. The girl in the Bomb, Indira, True Story of Resistance in Nazi occupied France but home and tells that story today at Oregon Live and in the Organ Oregonian and Boy. It's compelling, compelling, really. And it sounds like all these vets that did so much and whose stories you know most of them that will never be told. I remember. Veterans Day was always I love Veterans Day, because when, When I was a news reporter, I'd either go to the veteran sprayed out on Sandy Boulevard Ross Hollywood Funeral Chapel. Remember Bread or Albany? Because Albany had one of the biggest veterans parades in the year in the country? Yes, I mean, it was huge and, ah, I remember going down there several times with Doug Brazil who is the photographer who shot the exploding whale, which celebrates his 50th anniversary tomorrow, and Doug and I were young wise guys were both in their early twenties, and we would tell Channel two will volunteer to cover the Albany parade. We go down there and shoot the heck outta prayed. Then we had a favorite tavern. We went two for lunch and And what we were there The assignment desk would call us repeatedly say, Where you going? It's the biggest parade in America is going to take some time here hasn't even rounded the corner. Yeah, And so we did that for at least a few years that I remember. We always volunteered to go to all that and I seriously we did good stories on the veterans participating in that event, but didn't get to the story until we got the lunch. And it was a long lunch back in those days. So many events canceled around here for Veterans Day today. Because of the pandemic, but I wanted to point out where is this one? Parade that I saw. I think it's in Roseburg, where they're having a Douglas County Fair Fairgrounds in Roseburg. They are having a parade. Of her veterans Day they had 11 am it started at that time. But it's a reverse parade. Public drives by stationary floats in their own vehicles. Nice. That's a mart isn't really cool adapting. Yeah, and the other thing I wanted to mention today. All National Park Service sites that charge an entrance free our free admission. Tio. Everyone on veteran state not just fits. But beginning today, also,.

"He's beaten Derek Bronson. He's being the WHO's who in many way, so you? Really? I have to favor Robert Whitaker just based on strength of schedule he's. He's fought in the best way. He's beating the best middleweight he's being. You'll married twice. He's to and. Amarah which is to me even more impressive than winning the title especially going back to back, and yes, you can argue he lost the second time, but a win is a win same as Darren, until against even Thompson same as Dan until against Calvin gasoline win is a win, so do favor Robert Whitaker. He clearly has the edge wrestling. I mean Darren show himself said in media day like it's no. It's no secret he has. He has the wrestling. Dental says it's probably fifty fifty in the grappling department like the Department Darren. Till sets key has the better striking I. Don't know if that's true. Robert Whittaker's knocked out some pretty impressive strikers, and he's knocked out some pretty impressive grappler, so I tend to favor whitaker. I don't think it'll be a stoppage I. don't think it's going to be razor decision, but I think it's going to be a pretty good back and forth war, but I I I'm gonNA comfortably say Robert Whitaker a should pull off the win in the main event? I agree with you, but there's this feeling. I have deep down inside Jose that these guys are gonNA. Get in the middle of the Octagon, and they're gonNA swing for the fences. Feel that way I have no proof of this happening, but I feel like that's what we're going to see. Tomorrow I think both guys just going to go in and head huns, and then someone's going to get their hand as I. Don't see this by getting out of the second round. That's just the feeling I have, but if it goes the distance and these guys have just a technical masterpiece of a fight that would not surprise me either. Yeah, it's in Robert Whitaker is one of those strikers that he could. He picks his shots. He's not throwing punches for no reason like. Yeah, he. He gets into these wars. Meryl but that's not like. And he went back and forth. That's like he got punched hard by your Merrill once. And it turned into a war, because he went into survival mode for a while, and then the Derek Brunson Fight Doug Brazil acted fool and ran out there with his head and wide up in the air, so he's beaten some good. He's being good guys, but he's beating them. Picking his shots like and he's not. I'm not saying he was a counter striker, but he saw openings. Going forward took advantage. Darren to is can be very much counterpoint strike a counterstrike of he waits for his opponents to make a mistake, and then he capitalized do that against. Donald cerrone anywhere he, he hurts you, and then he backs you into the fence and just destroys you but he also has been slow. Leptons of open to those shots allow tired Woodley where he did that like that like Jab, and then when he like pulled back for the UPPERCUT, that Split Second Window Tyron Woodley took advantage and this question, and then took advantage and tapped him. So Robert Whitaker continues to do. Do what he does and take advantage of openings as opponents leave, I could see him pulling off the stoppage win, but I hope I'm not saying hopefully by think day until is has had enough time to close. Those gaps I. Don't know if this I don't know if this'll be stopped but I think it will be a very high level. Martial arts competition. Either way I think fans are going to be happy with no matter how this fight goes. a event is a fight that you've been very excited about since it was announced the trilogy fight between Mauricio Shogun. Antonio Rosario Garrett's little dogs final fight of his career. Take on the former light heavyweight champion. This is a nostalgia fight personified in the Komen event spot. What are you going to be looking for? In these two legends throwdown and the Octagon Tomorrow night well, it has to be little dogs last fight I. Mean I mean it's. Like, why is this happening? Why is this now? Who Do you want them to fight like you WANNA. Throw show out there, too like the best of the best middleweight light heavyweight. Lil Nog out like we saw what happened. When he fought Anthony Johnson little was on that that kind of run for a little bit. We strong together few wins, and they toss him in against Anthony Johnson loses in fifty seconds and violent fashion. Like who do you want these two to fight? I think this is a phenomenal matchmaking. It's a trilogy fire. They both have respect both icons in Brazil. This is a little nods last fight. Against a rival that he has deep respect for so it's the last time we will ever see you. Brother lays up the four ounce gloves unless one of them sides come out of retirement I. Don't think I don't see happening. So I'm very much looking forward to a contest between two former pride, fighters pride never die huge fan like I, i. I missed the days of the squared circle. The colored gloves the the yellow cards, the the scoring system. They have so This is a huge nostalgic fight, and it's I'm looking forward to. It's not I. Don't think it's going to be the most the most technical mant we'll could be but It's I. Don't think someone's going to go to sleep. In this whatsoever, but yeah I'm I'm looking forward to to icons of the sport going out there. People forget when it comes to Shogun that he's only lost one fight in his last six. He wins over Corey Anderson during this stretch. He's got nocco Tyson, Pedro and John Volante. Yeah, he had the split draw Craig in his last fight, but show is still a very tough out at two. Oh five right I like when Daniel Cormie was the light heavyweight champion. Chance, he was GONNA fight. Show defend the title against Shogun. Who will like? This guy is not like getting crushed it all of his fights. He's actually in a pretty good run right now. Is he not and let's not forget his tail lost. Oh, Vince improve..

"It was the major news of the week as far as I'm concerned it was a lot of stuff going on here in the Portland area and across the country and around the world but to me the major story of the week came out of Florence Oregon you heard mark Mason talking about it yesterday new park there named for you know what it's immoral exploding park in full and I don't have to go into my background with the well I think this audience is is well versed along those lines but we thought it be fun today to catch up with the mayor of Florence is Joe Henry on time mortgage broker in that community and make a mess for city projects manager involved with putting this part together and in particular the naming Joe and Megan welcome to the program this afternoon and Joe first of all let's start with you this didn't start out to be a park dedicated by name to the whale did it well no actually it didn't get that kind of tied in with our annual rhododendron festival which as you know is the second oldest and largest festival and parade in the state behind the rose parade and they came up with the idea of having the theme for that be the exploding whale but then they backed off from that but we along the same lines and we did a community survey and and came up with about nine names and the overwhelming vote was for the exploding whale park and so that's how it came about we'll get to that naming process which is very interesting but but jobs first of all when I first heard about the park I thought it might be on the beach but it's really not on the beach it's not next to the ocean right well that's correct it's actually a river access part but it does have nice sandy beaches and as far as the history goes this was on the land that we own in the port of so I use law owns some land that we were able to acquire their piece a couple of years ago and we've been working on developing that and filling out some trees it's just turned into a really nice addition to our park system here in Florence let's find out from the project manager how to how the name came together making it was a survey I've seen the numbers they didn't surprise me at all but I'm sure some people were surprised by them yeah so we ask the community for some name suggestions we had about a hundred and twenty plus name suggestions we narrow those down to the nine like the mere mention and ask the community to vote on them and of the eight hundred and fifty years though respondents over half of them more for exploding whale Memorial Park were you surprised I would not try at all I I think it's a fun way to recognize something that happened in our community that people know us for all throughout the world tell us a little bit more about the park space itself it's river access on the site slow right can you do can you put a boat in the water there what's what's in this park it is that refract art are you can't put a large boat but we do have people who bring I act down and they can use a little in let there and watch those you can walk down to the park or did that are you a member we do have picnic shelters in grassy areas and walking trails but the night on a little area in the afternoon Joe the this the signals kind of a change in attitude on the part of your community in my opinion I could be wrong about this but I base that comment on the fact that twenty five years ago Doug Brazil who as you know as the photographer who who shot the exploding well video he and I returned as as channel two reporter and photographer to Florence to do the explaining well story twenty five years later we ran into two things that surprise me number one a number of residents there who weren't that eager to talk to us about it thought that that's story kind of made fun of the city made residents of Florence looks silly and they'd they'd prefer not to engage in conversation about the well number two I ran into a few Californians who had moved up from the from the south and didn't know anything about it that's minor but do you think the change of attitude on the part of downstream will better about how they feel about this well yes I actually do think that that as Megan mentioned it's become more of a fun recognition thing there are a few people and there's always going to be they say errors that say it makes us look silly but we have the escape on that because actually the city of Lawrence didn't blow up the way it was actually dot so we can always blame that on them but even at that it was still it might have been somewhat misguided but I'm always intrigued by the comment they continually make that they used five hundred pounds of dynamite and that they didn't use enough they thought they should have used twice as much so that they give you the other day to rise the wailing apparently it didn't work so I think the attitude changed once we posted this on our social media pages we've got back couple hundred comments almost without exception they're positive and fun and laughing that along with our team for our rhododendron festival this year being instead of exploding whale they use blast from the past to tie it in with the Wales so I loved that theme and I love the logo that your your artistic members of the community came up with because to me it looked like the whale the rhododendrons behind the wheel kind of oddly in the shape of an explosion at least that's how I saw it I don't know if that was the intention and and finally this Joe I want to ask you when when visitors come to Florence from out of state is it a subject that you're asked about a lot not community due to people wanna know we're on the beach it happened in such or do most tourists are they not aware of it the most part they're not aware of it chamber of commerce as a visitor center and I do know that they do in fact we have volunteered there in the past and people do ask about it not I wouldn't.

"They're all standing around watching. The workmen tried to haul away this giant dead. Wale the whale carcass. Finally they secured it to the back of the truck and they slowly pulled away. They drove down some side. Roads then entered the city the center of the city on route to the wildlife preserve and the fifty ton whale exploded. The explosion was a result of the build up of gas shore inside a decomposing. Sperm Whale. Yeah that's what that's what happens but this was unusual because it exploded from its back and so they assumed that probably it had it had been hit by a boat a ship and had weakened that part of the area so it just exploded. Oh it's splattered blood and entrails all over. The surrounding shop fronts bystanders. The cars the explosion did not however caused injuries to prevent researchers from performing the necropsy on the whale over the course of a year professor Wang completed a bone display from the remains of the whale. The assembled specimen and Some of the preserved organs and tissue are on display in a museum and have been since April eighth two thousand five now exploding whales not that uncommon it does happen quite a bit why they decided to drag it into the middle of a densely populated city before they had checked on that is beyond me and again. This is because of the build up of gasses from decomposition. But there's a story of whale that exploded for a much different reason. This happened on November. Ninth Nineteen seventy a forty five foot eight tonnes sperm whale washed ashore near Florence Oregon along the southern coast of Oregon in addition to the the smell because big decomposing thing. Local officials were concerned. That people were we curious about the carcass and they'd come down and climb on it and they fall in or something. Yeah Yeah So. The agency responsible for Oregon beaches Oregon State Highway Division. I think is now called. The Oregon Department of Transportation was called in to remove the whale so they call up the US Navy munitions experts. Yeah and decide to treat the carcass like a giant boulder that there were trying to move during road excavation. They decided yeah. We're we're just going to blow it up. The idea was to blow it into little tiny bits of pieces that were small enough for seagulls and other critters to eat so they would be returning to the earth. Okay so they planted like twenty cases of dynamite on the Leeward side of this whale facing the land. They thought that would that would do the trick once again. A crowd of spectators showed up. Local reporters gathered on the beach on the twelfth of November of nineteen seventy about a quarter mile from the carcass. These munitions experts expected the whale to explode in small pieces that are easy for seagulls to digest novel. Bet Yes didn't quite work out that way. The beach erupted in a one hundred foot. High column of Sandon Whale Larry. Bacon reported in the register guard. Chunks of the animal flew in every direction and spectators began to scream and run for cover when they glimpsed large pieces soaring overhead. That's how invasion did what is wrong with you. It's estimated that the Gore rose about one hundred feet in the air in the background. Now there is a news report of this from K. A. T. U. local news reporter Paul Linneman and his a photo journalist partner Doug Brazil where they're doing a story for sure and so the story is available on. You can watch it on Youtube. Geez now I'm sorry. Did the munitions experts not recognize? I mean do they. They know what exploding is in theory. I guess but These these pieces that they were hoping to be fun size wail pieces for the seagulls turned out to be not that both the reporter and the cameraman had to run to escape the flying blubber. It was so big. That one chunk flattened a car. O Mike goodness the photo journalist. Doug Brazil's had it came down as this oil rain on your jacket. It was horrible and the smell. It was just sickening. Linneman recently said I can conjure up forty years later. If I think about it I can still smell that smell. The smell was only part of it. There was a guy there that was his name was Mr Newman hoffer. He decided to take his son to view the the blast. You know because it's a good family outing.
