"More at sierra nevada dot com start hiking. Let's do the three of us set off up the main trail. It's a gorgeous day after some rain and the hillsides are a lovely green. I would describe it as a walk into history. Ten million years of history as we walk up and back in history. Michael is full of fun tidbits. We just saw white tailed. And there's red tailed. Hawks cooper's hawks. There's all different kinds of like when i was in outdoor educator. We used to say freddy fungus met alice algae and he took a liking to each other after twenty minutes of walking near the top of the trail. We took a hard turn their. We're walking around the other side of the mountain. Yeah we are. Yeah and we are going to be very close soon to where. The top of volcano was time we arrive. What i think is the volcano a steep. Drop off into a crater. But michael tells me. That's not the volcano people come here. Oh look there's a big deep pit there that was of also called derek. No that was. That was a mountain that was taken away. The pit was dug by mining companies. They used the rock to build bay area roads and other infrastructure but if the crater isn't the volcano where is it well. Michael says we're standing in. What would have been the middle of it right now. You would it be inside the volcano ten million years ago. It sounds really hot. I'd love to be able to be put in a time machine and taken there and to see any of the the lava were kind of the rocks or that. The smoke was coming out. At the time i kind of blows my mind. Think about it. Like we're standing in the middle of the volcano. It's amazing it's amazing to think about and yet most people have no idea that this exists ten million years ago these hills would have looked more like your typical volcano with a peak and lava flowing out of it. Now it doesn't look anything like that is at the top of the volcano. One time would have been just across the valley from what we're looking. It has eroded away. The volcano has tilted on. Its side it's on its side. No wonder it doesn't look like volcano to understand all this geology. I went to kimberly blizniuk. A professor of geology. At san jose state there is something called the mendocino. Triple junction geologists. Just call it that because of where they found it and the mendocino triple junction is right now. Currently off the coast of mendocino as the name suggests it's a place where three plate boundaries come together a triple junction. Ten million years ago. That junction used to be down here near the east bay. At sibley volcanic region. The three plates are colliding sliding past one another and overlapping. The place where they meet is like a t junction and there's a little hole that allows magma under the earth to bubble up that's called a slab window. It's the slab window where magma bursts up through the crust and form a volcano and what are now the east bay hills sibley volcanic regional preserve and it gets crazier over millions of years after lots of earthquakes. Moving tectonic plates and shifting pressure. The land began to full. that's hello ball keno got turned on its side. Bear with me here. The best way to think about it is if you take pages of a book and you squeeze them together magin one hand on the spine of a closed paperback book and the other hand on the opposite pages. Now squeeze the pressure coming from both sides forces one part and the other down and what happens is that the pages will fold into a bowl and a little arc. It looks like a sine wave at sibley. The pressure came from faults and the book and this analogy is the land. We get something called congressional. Deformation where we squeeze the earth because There's a lot of stress that's being transferred from a calaveras to the hayward fall as these folks are evolving and producing earthquakes. When you squeeze the land between these faults they start to fold and tilt back on the hiking trail at sibley preserve. I looked behind me and see the tallest peak around round top. It's a conical mountain and looks more like how i imagine. An extinct volcano would look but no it was the center of the volcano. It's really have to count imagine it right. It's really hard to imagine when geologists examined the rock that makes up round pop. They found a came from deep within the earth it was pushed up by thousands of earthquakes and lots of plate movement over millions of years. Rally top is being eroded away more slowly than the other mountains and that's why it looks kind of like it stands on its own and that's why people think it is the volcano. Well they're partly right. It was part of the volcano. The best evidence. I can see the volcano that once stood. Here are some really cool rocks. All those reminds you of a place in the south west. that's not california right because of that redder utah or like you're on mars or something very kind of alien landscape. But there's one more thing we haven't explored yet it really drops off Does so the bottom of the quarry is a labyrinth that was secretly built in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. It's a dirt path lined with grass and volcanic rock the trail loops back on itself creating a big circle about fifty feet across at the center. People have left trinkets. It was a beautiful round spot already. It already felt sacred. It already felt so good there helena. Mozzarella is the woman behind the labyrinth at the bottom of the quarry what michael called the most famous labyrinth in the bay area. Thirty years ago. Helena lived near sibley and would hike there often with her pet goat together. They'd wandered down to the bottom of the quarry. One day she decided to build a labyrinth out of mud. Labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative transformational tools that mankind used for centuries. I mean centuries old at mazes what you get lost in. This is a labyrinth. It's universal so there's one way in and one way out. It's a type of walking meditation. The bay area has many labyrinths including famous ones in grace cathedral and lands end. I just did it just to do it right. I just did it with mud. Didn't even think it was going to last that long and actually it has been there thirty years. The east bay regional parks district doesn't condone rogue labyrinth builders but this one has been there so long and tended with such care that they look the other way.
What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

Yeah, I don't. I'm not buying it. I'm not buying that album. I don't care. I'll get the song. Hey, man, I look In the springtime that looks like Scotland or Ireland of the Green Hills. I love it. I love it. I'm just saying it's underrated. That's all I'm saying. Dude, you're talking to somebody who's lived in the East Bay 30 years. You're gonna sell me on it. I've been I've been here forever. I'm damn near lifer over here in the in the space, So, Yeah. You're not gonna get any argument from may just don't ask. Don't ask for a song and don't compare to the Rocky Mountain. And after reality check you. No, We just we ask him. We lost so excited about it so much, he said. We're done. We're done here. You guys weren't concurring with me. Good. Up in here. Jeez, 30 years now damn near. I think you know. So there did you immediately moved to Alameda cause was right next to the facility and just the proximity of practice And that kind of yes. All about convenience crew. Hey Denver chamber, The Denver Chamber of Commerce knocked off my phone line when I try to compare That they did to the Rocky Mountains. If they did. They said that we had enough now you know what, Like, you know, you know why you're lying. Got knocked out and cut it there laughing so hard. They yanked it out of the socket there, like get out of here. That's enough of that already generated about one thing, you know, You know what underrated I'll buy Rocky Mountain comparison. I won't buy that. I did. I just won't. Unless you've been smoking some of that stuff you can get over there and the youth today. All right, let's move on to hope. Shall we wait? All right, give us your I found it kind of comical. The glowing terms in which people were talking about James Wiseman. I'm like first he's supposed to be pretty good. He was a second player taken overall. Ah, secondly It's like one practice. Everybody calm down. The man isn't even played a game yet let alone a meaningful game in the regular season and and by the way, let me reiterate he's supposed to be pretty good. He's a number two overall pick. Your thought. I mean, people just love that potential man. They love that potential. There's something exciting about it. There's something just to that sense of this guy might totally change your franchise. Where he might be a bust or something in between. But there's that range right there. That's what gets fans going. It harkens back to that era when the Warriors stunk, except this time around. It might actually make him pretty good. And I give credit to our Anthony Slater at the athletic for being in curating some of those fast watch videos. Those brief images of the great Wisemen that gets the fans pump, so I get it. I'm very excited for his first preseason game. On depart of it blamed the Warriors. Man. They're building the height machine. Your boy, Steve Kerr. He's talking in glowing terms about and he's getting the fans riled up. That's why this is happening. Can't do it. I just can't get there Not on. Not not not not not 1st 1st practice. I want to see him play a regular season game, but I get it like that's a those air fans. I mean, time fan gets a high pick. They're excited, and they never river right to be and you get excited about it until you don't get excited about it dawns on you, boy. This guy's no good. This guy can help. At all but a an athletic big, who has a soft touch left handed, I think is very, very intriguing. I'm hoping They don't ask him to do too much this year. I'm hoping they could just let him run the core block. Some shots, maybe hit a jumper occasionally, until he looks like he's ready for more. Well, I think that's probably prudent and expectation should be in the proper perspective. But there's an element of I've been eating burned out burgers for a while. And maybe this is a slice of some better because the warriors have had let's just say non, incredibly talented centers for a long time. Uh and you could just see it in that image. I love loony. I love with loony does for them. But one of those images out of practice. It would've been funny just to clip the panels of it because at one point Wiseman gets the steal and he's starting at the same place that loony is and they're kind of the same place and then they're getting the half court loonies trailing and then you could just see once they crossed half court will book on loonies face, which is Yeah, I give up like this is it's a lot faster and there's no catching up with this train. And that's just the type of thing that I don't think that we're his fans have had. And it's just a new element, and that's why there's just so much excitement. There's so much anticipation and I'm with you. I'm with you People shouldn't get carried away and with it. They shouldn't. They shouldn't make too much of it. They shouldn't put too much pressure on really a 19 year old kid, but that's just what we're gonna do. It's just exciting. It's new, and we just haven't had enough new during this whole pandemic period. Well, and also I mean warrior fans and longtime warrior fans like myself and others. You know, this is not just about this year or even this addition of the Warriors. This has been like This is the player that they've been searching for back when Tom played. I mean, this is this is the big man that they just they had made. So they don't need Wiseman. They had to go. But Kevin Robinson October we got that were good. You were good. I lied. You want no problems? Check you got all these guys. But don't you think? I mean, this has been like the Holy Grail? It's like you've got to get this guy and then finally they get the pick and all the conjecture and all the possibilities about all. Maybe they'll do this and maybe they'll trade down and parlay it into a window. Carter and all the stuff..

"To start the work week with a slight increase in on shore flow heading into Tuesday gusty north to northeast winds are likely to develop in the north and East Bay hills and mountains from late tomorrow night through early Thursday I could bring fire critical fire weather conditions starting tomorrow from NPR in WBEZ why are I'm Tania mostly I'm robin young it's here now today president trump said he will strongly consider testifying in writing in the impeachment inquiry something Nancy Pelosi invited him to do yesterday the house intelligence committee is gearing up for the second week of public hearings between current and former trump administration officials trump attacked Democrats over the weekend saying the inquiry had been raped by house speaker Pelosi and Republicans flock to the Sunday shows to make the case that well witnesses say a request for political investigations in exchange for aid or White House meeting did happen the aid ultimately went through so end of story total Rooney is what how supportive Washington post I told you hi how are you I'm good and to the president's tweet today saying he may testify in writing adding even though I did nothing wrong and don't like giving credibility to this no due process hoax your thoughts we have heard the president flow things in the past and then back down or just sort of throw them out there to get the media interested in to get headlines in the not follow through so I would be surprised if the president does actually sit for testimony or even provide written answers in part because his White House has been so antagonistic to this entire process holding back key witnesses from testifying under oath and the White House has not been able to provide a lot of answers to the Democrats are trying to figure out what happened with Ukraine but I think this latest float by the president shows that there is some concern within the White House that maybe they have not done enough to put out their own messaging to counter some of these officials who have come out and provided some damaging testimony about what the president was doing there is not very much of a counter narrative so maybe this is the president trying to put that out there that he would be willing to answer questions and show that in his mind he did nothing wrong well we'll get to one of the you know the latest counter narrative but first you know what to expect this week eight witnesses scheduled to testify including a bass records someone investor to the E. U. he had many conversations with president trump about Ukraine somewhere over heard the Wall Street journal is reporting today that email to show that he kept presidential aide Mick Mulvaney and Rick Perry abreast of his talks with Ukraine about trading aid for investigations he notably changed his closed door testimony to include more information about what he knew about that exchange or deal what are Democrats hoping to hear from him well he is there their their key witness at this point who could link all of this bad behavior that they have laid out to the president directly because he had spoken several times with the president he was carrying out Ukraine policy on behalf of the president even though he was the ambassador to the European Union which is not usually something that position it would be in charge of Ukraine policy so this irregular foreign policy making shout channel was led in part by Gordon's online and he was in his mind doing it at the behest of president trump so if Democrats can make the connection between president trump and all this bad behavior this quick quick quick pro quo between the the Ukraine's government decision to hold investigations because president trump wanted the bidens to be investigated in exchange for taxpayer funded military assistance Gordon Solomon is the person who could provide that link well over the weekend present troubles renewed his calls to out what he called the fake whistle blower he attacked Jennifer Williams we called an aide to vice president Mike pence she's not she's assigned to his office from the state department she described trump's July twenty fifth call with Ukrainian president as inappropriate in closed door hearings look it we also had the US ambassador to Ukraine on Friday while she was testifying of be attacked by the president in a tweet she said in the middle of the hearing she felt intimidated how is this playing out the president attacking people who are testifying isn't isn't that witness intimidation well it's definitely making it harder for Republicans to defend the underlying behavior of the president are having to shift their arguments to defending the live attacks by the president against witnesses now ambassador Ivanovic was recalled from you came by the president did stated she felt intimidated by the president's tweets against her and the president has shown no sign of slowing down he's attacked other members of his own administration calling them never trump version saying that they are wrong to be testifying in participating in this process so it does seem that the president will continue this this tactic of intimidating people who are going against and will be we want to hear the but Republican lawmakers are saying here's Jim shore noble high on face the nation he was asked about trump's goal of having Ukraine investigate Biden's of what Democrats are calling for every let's listen there was never an investigation undertaken there was never an announcement that the request for one that was over heard and testified to energy and there's there's all kinds of talk about things that they did it happen so tell who quickly had that defense I mean people are saying a burglar trying to break into a house is still a burglar yeah it's a hard defense to to put forward by Republicans in part because they're saying that what the president was requesting was wrong just saying that he was not able to accomplish it so it's sort of a half way defense and the president has requested people to defend them fully to say his call was perfect and right now we're not hearing that from Republicans to Lou already White House reporter for The Washington Post thank you thank you we want to turn now to Hong Kong where there's a standoff between police and hundreds of protesters and Hong Kong polytechnic university this is the latest escalation in the anti government demonstrations that have gripped Hong Kong for nearly six months now NPR Southeast Asia correspondent Julie McCarthy joins us from Hong Kong Julie can you explain what's going on there well at the moment first of all can I just tell you what's going on in Kowloon which is the area that's really become inflamed today it's it's a battle ground this evening parts all major roles Jordan road sin chart to we yeah my tie their their laid waste fires are igniting tear gas canisters are rolling down the pavement the the protesters take of this positions crunching beneath their umbrellas in the advance as as one and then they move backwards as one and you know behind them someone's lobbying the gasoline bombs the R. on daunted Tonya and if threats about postponing the election which we heard today are meant to mean anything I can tell you they're they're falling on on deaf ears of protesters tonight wow I mean you're giving us a visit look at what's happening in the streets at the Hong Kong polytechnic university I I've seen pictures that are really surreal people climbing and jumping out of windows during that standoff police have told protesters there's only one way and in one way out has this turn into a siege well you know the power arrayed against the protesters is no match for them and the standoff was extraordinary to watch the protesters don't seem to exhibit fear they manage to organize garrisons were they stockpiled bricks and petrol bombs in in inside simple numbers and they were able to hold these places for days there was an agreement not to storm the place with that fell apart and the police attempted to they were turned back by protesters who set fires to the you know barricaded entrances so there's this steely determination and you saw tonight again you saw it on the streets people are being arrested but they were certainly out in in in numbers that had riot police just in in been large phalanx is all across the streets in in major parts of cold moon is it really safe to say that police don't really have a strategy or or Tuesday I think the idea here is to up the aggression the idea it's a clear indication that Beijing wants the shut down but locally if possible and that means more robust policing so there's training that's sharpening this entire enterprise that's part of what you're seeing out there you're also seeing the police responding to the acceleration and the escalation of violence on the part of protesters it's it's this retaliatory spiral that's also part of this we've really been watching these protests for months now and it seems that we had a tipping point and it seems like it's the worst that it has banned and then something else happens is it getting worse and our people frustrated by the protests their lives being disrupted well I don't think there's any question that this past week in this past weekend at polytechnic university were the worst most violent episodes in nearly six months of them all in you can do that a couple ways again saying saying spiraling retaliation on one hand but also one of desperation you know protesters don't believe they're being listened to they can't bend the government to see their point of view so you keep your yourself you keep on upping the ante and and and they do that in the hope that that they will be listened to I think you also need to see this in the framework of two very opposite and antithetical viewpoints battling it out the protesters want more democratic freedoms less interference from Beijing the institutions of government are beholden to the the the central leadership in Beijing and and they do toll that line yeah you're in the thick of it I you've been covering this for quite awhile do you see any way to end these protest peacefully well you know there's there's talk this weekend that emerged a four hundred officials and experts from outside came in here convened about what what to do and what they were being told by outside experts is that you've got to dialogue in fact you had some of them saying what you really need to do first off is meet the demands meet the demands of which included in Korea to the police and and and direct elections you know but to western ears that may make make a lot of sense two years in Beijing that involves great concessions and is using paying is more concerned about control than amity and saving Hong Kong he doesn't grant them those concessions it it's a difficult wait for them to think if they lose a lot of face in the middle of all that so if you want to keep your you know your yeah and and hands off of of Hong Kong means a little less of that rejuvenation of the motherland that does using paying is troubling NPR Southeast Asia correspondent Julie McCarthy and Hong Kong Julie thanks.
