"Expects the only reason i would have watched sport thing like a sports thing american football. I was picturing american football. Picturing clash of the titans and to american football helmets. Kind of having a standoff on the cover anyway. Or it's cracking legendary. Sea monster of gargantuan size dwelt the dwelt dwelled dwelt dwelt dwelled i dwelt dwelt dwelling off the coast of norway and iceland the sheer size and fearsome appearance attributed the beasts have made them common ocean dwelling monsters in various fictional. Works these huge multi on creatures were said to eat whales and attack ships by wrapping their tentacles around the hell and capsizing at drowning or eating the crew. It said that by thrusting their enormous muscular tentacles down with incredible velocity tracking snap lodged in half just really trying hard not to mess up the word tentacles. A mashing down his lodge testicles half sad. How will i know. It's the rest libertinage sense of humor too. Early days of the scientific era the crack in. What's considered just as likely to exist as mermaids which obviously from our hashtag listened to the moments episode you and i've already proven without memories are real thing So definitely check american folk not. Yeah that is to say basically that the scientific community pretty much stood completely clear on the topic of the cracking but now signs starting to find evidence that a creature like the crack and might not only live in this world. And it is not fictional at all of course the most likely culprit like you said is the giant squid which is also sometimes known as the colossal squid and several. Colossal squid caucuses. Say that seven times twice. Several several colossal squid caucuses would be beached within a short time of each other and there was such an uproar that the reluctant scientists were basically forced to pay attention. The giant squid still remains an elusive creature to this day. And despite the efforts the scientific community haven't had much chance to study them and observe them in their natural habitat many people before. I even start this paragraph. I've seen a documentary that they did manage to catch some footage of the giant squid and they are the most graceful creatures underwater absolutely fucking terrifying if you find on the beach underwater there and especially because of how deep they live in the ocean. There's not much down therefore size comparison so when you see don't you can see you getting ready to make a joke. Don't you but can't call very very graceful. Very grateful to watch and they communicate with each other with bioluminescence they flash different colors and it looks like you're watching something like the aurora borealis underwater. These beautiful beautiful cutters their flashing to each other again. She should've flashed the tentacles at each other saying things like mine's bigger than yours. Huge tentacles many people claim to have seen giant squids but they were most mostly fishermen and sailors and the same people who are not believed when they're basically report things like sea serpents. Mermaids every live sighting was unconfirmed in each case the witness was never a scientist so again. It comes back to what you talking about. What you were talking about was like you know. My fish was bigger than your fish. I couldn't octopus. While i could affect crack. Aiko think about the pompous scientists. Who will call it a colossal squid and call it a crack and just go. What's your call. It a cracking what it is. Call it what it is what it is like. Why did you have a lasso squid because there's so much better than everyone else. Funds second scientists fishermen side come on guys. Scientists scientist suspend million dollars in expeditions. But not but could not obtain footage of live squid. Everything that was known about the giant squid was basically based on their dead bodies all expeditions. Into deep water. In search of the natural habitat of giant squids has proved completely fruitless. The giant squid slow had much in common with mythical creatures tripped. It's even though the scientific community no longer had any doubt that the squid existed and then in september two thousand and four that finally changed in japanese scientists attracted at giant squid with bated line and the automatic cameras that were attached to the line quote more than five hundred photographs of the giant squid before ripped itself free leaving an eighteen foot of still attached to the bait which again sounds sounds an awful lot like said.
"And welcome back to the show. Fred your plant of the week with a plan of the week. Marcus something that i saw and it might well. I've admired for years. Yeah when i see them here and then they're somewhat common down where my daughter lives in north carolina it is called or named southern magnolia. So they're magnolia is indeed in that family it has a beautiful white somewhat fragrant flower and so on but the thing that was remarkable about three weeks ago when i saw it anything else had well most of them had defoliated and i haven't been driving by a place where there was a southern magnolia standing. Oh fifteen eighteen feet tall. Probably ten or so white at that point man absolutely a magnificent deep dark green. I happened to be there when there was done. And it was on the tree in a manner such that they just the leaves just shined. Well i got my attention and then other things came up when we talked about other plants. But then i went back yesterday with his pretty white out to the beauty of that treat now i. It's one. I don't recommend very often. I'm one to speak of the care where you plan it. But one i saw the v. One i saw was standing on a bit of a hill. Oh he time. Eighty and it was facing south east and absolutely well. There's up against or or near a very large old brick home et cetera. So that the the plant where it was on the hill or near the hill was standing. where it was well drained. I'm quite comfortable. Those people properly placed it by digging a wide but shallow hole. Getting planted probably did a little bit of acidifying the soil and then whatever they did they must have added a lot of organic because the tweet was flourishing. It's one that i would not plant certainly not a street tree and i've even cautious where i put it on a property. But we've caution in selection Talk about magnificent beauty you that snow a few weeks ago and then Probably even right now on through many many winters it just absolutely outstanding when when you think of nothing much happening in the wintertime think southern magnolia and think magnificence with the leaves partly snow them partly without snow snow under the tree sunshine on. It doesn't get any prettier than that but again not not advised for just the average callous use of our heavy clays but that's still magnificently to think about and i know there's a particular variety that you like. Michael is it's one call brown betty now I think it's probably the only one nurseries would have to sell and at for use in this area. It is known to be hardy against our cold. I suppose there could be an extreme below minus twenty. They take it out here in central ohio but that is so exceedingly rare that it is an app to happen and therefore with with the reliability on nursery people picking plants that are apt to grow in this area. I would think they're going to be seeing a tag that says southern magnolia and then the variety called brand betty. So that's Let's just say that's probably what you would find in the garden center or nursery now if the if in general the southern magnolia doesn't do well in the heavy clay soils what what type of soil prep to get this ready for planting well. That's that's a darn good question. Mark and like i say dig a hole that is measured depth so that you're not putting it to deepen toward our claim then where i always recommend that the whole at least twice as wide as the ball of the plant i would even go out of. We'll call it four times white so it's a two football. I'd be looking at a bid that is bordering on eight feet wide just to be sure that prepared the soil. I've had a lot of organic I might even put some grits in the soil. But it'd be careful don't use Don't use crushed limestone. 'cause that's that's the ads are opposite of acidifying and Then i would be careful that. It's not in a lower wet spot period as i say the tree that i saw and admired so much in passing by was on the edge of a hill to where i'm sure it had good drainage so that we're the plant does need water. It's it's capable of handling the heat and drought of summer in north carolina. But then when you water it you soak the daylights out of it yet. Excess drains away in the tree goes on and becomes beautiful.

How Can I Install an Irrigation System Without Damaging Tree Roots?
"Says. I'd like to put an irrigation system in for my lawn. How. Close can I put the lines to existing mature trees without damaging the roots? Well Mark. That's a tough one to answer. Let me just start with the fact that if what he's speaking of mature trees that has been in the ground where they are for three years and or more, the chances are the roots reach out at least as far as the width of the canopy of the tree. Now I have seen. Irrigation put in where the lines have gone way way way too close to the trunk and it makes almost a major kill in the root zone because they have to dig down deep enough to get the lines properly buried so to speak. That's big danger. Now, if if we look at a tree trunk and the crown of the tree reaches out fifteen eighteen feet on any given side, if they stay out ten feet away from the trunk. They're gonNA be cutting some routes without any question however. The odds are they will only be, let's just say dampening the plants growth to a certain small degree. Kill factor probably goes away when you have a tree with a canopy that widen you get closer than ten feet from the trunk. Then you start to get into the big breaks routes you get into a physical matter of holding themselves in the ground you get into the root growth and so on. So if I may On Doug's question. stay. It's hard without knowing exactly what speaking up but try to stay out as far from the trunk as you can in all cases. Now, sometimes you go, for example, between trees of of the. Size that are stated. So you put the line equidistant from the two trees. You know you're cutting roots of both but probably not so very many you run the main line between the trees then you run the spurs off. Or the feeder lines, whatever you WANNA call them you run those off and you think now of compass points, you think of a wagon wheel whichever with tree trunk being the hub, and then the spokes being the major routes if you can get out away and then run a line in a long with I'll call nearly parallel to the roots. Then you're not cutting so many that are important and you can put sprinkler heads and so on and a little closer but the best answer for Doug is to try to get somebody to come out and take a look at the place in terms of tree considerations and other plants, and then go with era.

A Statue Falls as Britain Confronts Its Racist History
"Most of the recent global protests have been peaceful with some exceptions a London street fight this weekend led to multiple arrests and police injuries police in Bristol England are also investigating property damage dramatic scenes there over the weekend powered by anger over Bristol's history with the trans Atlantic slave trade the world's Orla Barry reports from London the statue of slave trader Edward Colston stood in the city center of Bristol four hundred and fifteen years on the plaque the remains are the words a memorial of one of the most virtuous and wise sons of Bristol hello thanks someone painted in white spray paint black lives matter this was the moment the colts and stuff she was pulled off its pedestal on Sunday the demonstration posed with windy in the figure's neck a reminder of the final moments of George fill its life was killed in police custody in Minneapolis for this protester it wasn't just about a monument in Bristol coming down today hopefully signifies change hopefully we send a message not just to everyone in the UK or the USA worldwide we need worldwide difference it call just come here this call in America in the second World Wide Testors rolled the eighteen foot bronze statue through the streets of the city local police stood by and watched you know I wonder why we just we made a very tactical decision to stop the the side of the street recent tactics was to take place today police say they've launched an investigation into what happened and the British home secretary Priti Patel welcome to that decision his wife had cheated please follow up on thoughts and make sure that justice is taken undertaken with those individuals that are responsible for such this orderly a mole this behavior for years the statue has been a source of controversy in Bristol one of England's most progressive cities trade redwood Colson was born in the city and made his fortune to the royal African company historians say the company sold close to one hundred thousand people from West Africa to the Americas in the sixteen hundreds Colston nature donated much of his wealth to local schools and charities but David on the show got from the university of Manchester says people in political power didn't care where the money came from that's a cult of Colston was created for political and religious reasons in the eighteen nineties because the people around Bristol that didn't really worry the fact that cold snap in the slave trade he's not the greatest philanthropists in the city really to do with the attempts by Bristol's a political dimension to meet to reinforce that power and that privilege is bigotry a spokesman for the British prime minister says Boris Johnson sees the statues removal as a criminal act others say it erases history but all the sugar dismisses that line of criticism this is not an attack on the street this is what happens statues are removed they replaced that put in museums that taken off pedestals go to Germany outside of Berlin there is a museum full full of statues the the the singularly status none they were removed after the second World War because they reminded everybody of the Prussian militarism that it led to two world wars one is stuck to now lies at the bottom of Bristol harbour Colson's presence is still very visible in the city it's the way the Coldstream name dominates our skyline in particular in the central crystal was Martin is an artist and one of the driving forces behind the counter in Colston campaign we has been fighting to have the statue removed in that is the Colston tower there's you know the whole district Costa nothing you except St century she says it's time to remove Colson's name from streets and buildings across Bristol today an empty plane still stands in the city center and questions are now being asked about who should replace the statute Martin says it's time to pay tribute to those whose voices are rarely acknowledged I think they should be a monument to African ancestors knowledge and that can change so the total wealth of the city there's lots of things that can be done to put forth our history in the sky along which honors usually those without phone service the mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees who is black says he doesn't support social disorder but he called the colts in statute and affront to humanity one day he said it should be fished out of the harbor and put into a
The Dehumanization of Latinx in the U.S.
"This is one of the stories that I wrote about for. Latino rebels was the fact that the new guidelines in English about covert one. Thousand nine hundred. The elderly need to stay at home. We have fifteen days to stop the spread. It came out in English on Monday and it took like three days for the White House to actually make it publicly available in Spanish. I called up the White House on Monday. And they didn't have it mightier. This was not available. So that's a problem. I think this real time information being delayed for two thousand seventeen estimate from pugh. We're talking about thirty seven million emails in the United States who speak Spanish at home. So it's the country's most common non English language. Yeah it's a significant population. So I threw a lot. Actually what are you thinking about that with? All that's going on this week when it comes to immigration or the Spanish language community in this country. I mean I think that what I'm GonNa say is really really radical but then again look what we're living through yeah self-isolation self quarantine closed borders. Which really it's like Mark Krikorian. 's Wet dreams come true. He's the head of CIS Center for Immigration Studies. Basically he's very much a counsel to the entire Rabid Anti immigrant perspective and these are people who have been advocating to close all the borders to not allow not one refugee and not one immigrant in period. And so because of covert nineteen. They're getting their dreams coming true. So my response to that. It's like shouting into this guy. But why not open up all of the detention facilities? Yeah Open them up release. Everyone release everyone to their family members. How do you do this like? How do you start a movie? You know usually the way donald is worth that has top people. It's People Power you use your body. How do you stop a bus from transporting people you know of active protests when we're doing social isolation? Yeah but that's my feeling. Is You know. Release them the problem is. Is that this whole thing that you laid out all of this kind of tick tock of detentions and ice and all of this year. It's part of the immigration detention deportation industrial complex. You cannot stop it. You cannot bring it to a grinding halt the way it should be because of this humanitarian endemic crisis. Because that means that the money will start to dry up right. And you know the funding there right now mandated by Congress to make sure that people are being detained by law right so if you suddenly are not detaining it's like other raison d'etre goes away you know. I want out. There are some stories that are happening that we're not hearing about you. Know the ninth death in ice custody since October first happened this Wednesday a twenty seven year old Honduran man died in Karnes County residential center in Texas. The death appeared to be suicide. I'm thinking about the young man whose story on follow lean who is Honduran and desperate year right now in. Mexico cannot move also on March eleventh. This reported that a nineteen year old a nineteen year old pregnant one. Modern woman named medium is too funny. He'd fell eighteen feet from a border barrier and died. Let's just call it the wall so those are the things that are happening for me. Julio and I agree with you I've thought so much about what you said about Puerto Rico and about how the people all of them American citizens you know put through a humanitarian crisis because of Hurricane Maria and we all were here on the mainland. Like how are they doing this? How are they doing this? And it's like people are looking at is insane. How are they doing it? How are they doing it? And it's like what we learned from. We learned from our brothers and sisters in the south. That's how I learned and I will say this about all that it's like we still have Internet. We still have light like the majority of people have access to Food Not Puerto Rico during the hurricane. And that's why I think about the resiliency of my my peeps but listen. I wanted to just raise one thing. That also is getting missed a little bit during the Senate vote on the House legislation for the covert nineteen relief package which passed by the way ninety two eight in the Senate so that's the first relief package it's going to allow for free testing for the corona virus and up to ten days of paid sick leave for some workers which I'm like. Wow Okay here we go. Let's put our political differences aside. We're actually trying to put the American people out there. People that live in this country. But I'm sorry Kentucky Senator Rand Paul who oppose the legislation in the middle of introducing an amendment to the bill. He said this. My amendment says that if you want to apply for money from the government the Child Tax Credit Program. This is money that the government gives to people. They have to be a legitimate person. You have to have a social security number. We've been talking about this reform for a decade now and we never seem to be able to get it passed. It has nothing to do with not liking immigrants. It has to do saying taxpayer money. Should go to non people. You should have to be a person to get taxpayer money. I'm sorry when you start using media this is what you say all the time. Words like non people and saying well. I'm not racist against immigrants. It's just about not giving services to non people because they don't have social security cards. That is a dangerous dangerous slope. It speaks to the dehumanisation of like you said like you tweeted Matia. Who's doing the work? Now who's most vulnerable right now? You know maids people that clean food delivery people that prepare those workers. Who are they right and to hear? Rand Paul say well. These are non. People is just sickening and immoral that needs to get called
Can I use brush killer near valuable plants?
"A mature windbreak of Austrian Pine at Arbor Vita and I have a constant battle keeping mulberry in control. Of course wants to bury sprouts are cut they sprout up again from the STUMPS and I end up with more than ever. He said our read on the Internet and mulberries can be controlled by drilling a hole in the STOMP and filling with straight undiluted. Brush killer if I did. This could the brush killer be transmitted through the mulberry routes and my windbreak trees. Any advice for control is greatly appreciated. Okay Bob now. I'm going to exercise considerable caution here because where that probably is true. I'm not so sure that those mulberry would be interspersed with things you WANNA keep. Yeah Brush. I don't know the chemistry Brush Killers. And there are several levels of toxicity. There are several time periods that it lasts for sought. So I'm going to stay away from the specifics of that other than to exercise. Caution on your part to to doing that now. I'm going to take you back to the colonists and the Indians the Indians had to teach to colonists how cleared area per to plant their Cornyn. Okay all right. The colonists would cut the tree down. They would burn it which is good and then the following year grew twelve feet. The next year grew another twelve feet and they just came back up with a vengeance. One tree now has fifteen trunks. All right What the Indians taught them was how to stop the plant. From living the distribution of water into the route up into the top top leaf leaf makes food sends it back down to the root in essence. Now if you interrupt that cycle you can destroy the tree by going in at waist height or download the ground. Whatever strip the bark off? Don't cut the tree down. Just strip the bark off to the inner would now you can use a machete a hunting knife. An eye hatchet whatever depending on the size of the tree once you put a barrier and I would make it at least a half an inch wide. If not more so that the tree can continue to get water up into the top make leaves leaves make food but the food cannot get back to the root system so the root system dies first then the top dies okay then. The tree is done when you cut him off yes. He's right. The the buds on the roots the trunks and so on come back with a terrible vengeance of number stories on that including one I- i- priced removal of two big pussy willows. For A guy. He about hemorrhaged. Oh I have the neighborhood kid. Cut Him down. I said well I wouldn't advise it. Yeah that's what I'm GONNA do okay. The next year we went back and it was still X. dollars to take him out because the cutoff pussy willows where now eighteen feet tall and one year. Jack's beanstalk so we learned I learned etc but back to the days and I know this sounds like a lot of physical Labor a day like today once it warms up to Sun Shining. Put on a light jacket and go out. Use your pocket knife or any other instrument and cut not into the trunk of the tree that well is not into the wood but just the Barclay get it off You have essentially then stopped the tree being able to make make food and rejoin its its growth in youth and so on

"An idea near the site thank you it's really coming down to socialism versus freedom and I believe not only will this president get reelected when the house is only eighteen feet there are eight seven a crackpot Richmond yeah the McCarthy let me say this to you if we don't win the house if we don't keep the Senate and Donald Trump wins I can guarantee you it's gonna be impeachment impeachment on steroids I mean for the entire presidency of Donald Trump they will never stop they can't they are I can argue now that they can even even if even if they wanted to they can't control themselves Eric swallow this week Adam ship these are the people will still be in power it will still be a speaker close you'll still be a chairman Adam Schiff if we don't take the house that's what your listeners they need to go to check out dot com if they want to change Congress if they want to make sure if this president get reelected it's not sitting there being a preacher there's no other way this is going to change the Congress that will work for America not blame America and that's only have done even this week they're talking about impeachment again I a like everybody else I have here in front of me the February twenty eighteen IG report that sites so that the deputy and then enter on FBI director of deputy FBI director at the time Andrew McCabe quote we found in a conversation with then director call me after Wall Street journal articles published that McCabe quote lacked candor lacking candor well would be lying they found on that's on page two also on page two they cite a may ninth twenty seventeen example where McCabe quote lacked candor and that would be lying again additionally we found when questioned under oath by the office of inspector general in a recorded interview McCabe lacked candor ought then on page twenty two lacked candor on four separate occasions arm yet the it's announced today that McCabe they're not pursuing any justice in that case the president is angry I know I am angry and our audience is angry you compare that to the treatment let's look at Roger stone the average sentence for rape in America under twenty eighteen median time served in jail is four point two years for convicted rapists and they want to put Roger stone for process crimes while lying lacking candor they want to give him nine years we have exposed all of the premeditated fraud on the FISA courts we've exposed Hillary's obstruction of justice subpoenaed emails deleted bleach bid hammers the espionage act with the secret server are how come none of these people here to four have been held accountable and I understand the Attorney General needs is independence I respect that and I really do believe that this Attorney General and prosecutor John door will get the job done but I I'm I'm beginning to doubt when I read this okay what were country one of our greatest strength is the rule of law but this is a person who is our top national law enforcement officers they should be held to a different standard they didn't have CNN with twenty seven of the people lined up and guns another pounding on the cage door and you know how he got fired by his own investigation some people from the FBI because he lied and how can they say if they're not going to move forward on the Cape how did the Clintons other people into prison so the only common denominator if you supported president trump you have to serve prison time this is what you talk about when you say control they not only want to control every part of our economy they want to control who could be the nominee they want to control what justice is in this country and that is not right well it's and how do you feel about the at it well first of all look the president can say anything he wants he has freedom of speech to become president you don't lose that are I understand I think with the Attorney General is saying I I understand the president's frustration because this is something I've I've deeply in I am deeply invested in his arm we broke many of the stories exposing the steep state and Fizer and premeditated fraud on the court and the room thirty Russian dossier and and the obstruction with the bleach bitten the hammers so you know it's frustrating do you think we get to the truth will there be equal justice and equal application of our loss I believe that I might tell you I support our Attorney General one hundred percent eight he follows the rules on I remember he was Attorney General before he only came back because he watched exactly what your talking about he believes in the role of justice and remember when you started exposing all this it was not the popular view you were getting attacked by it they would go after any women there what they did to Devin and then what they try to do too if you were wrong across the tree wrong they would have taken you away but non behold we are right it's the closest come clean vindication I mean it's just the opposite and and ninety nine percent of the media mob wrong Adam Schiff knew better and lied to the American people in his report he seems to always get away with things stay right there Kevin McCarthy is with those GOP leader in the house we have well the ultimate jury into one or in sixty three days I'll say this to be going to vote for the president I would strongly recommend you don't put these Democrats back in power because we know what they want to do imagine the progress we can actually make with an unencumbered president for a couple years anyway listen like many of you I have insomnia but I'm sleeping better than ever and it's really my pillow products that have made all the difference in my life I fall asleep faster I stay asleep longer why because they're the best

Would King Kong Be Considered an Endangered Species?
"All that. So new show from the creator of the control. Group comes a new scripted. podcast the seventh daughter.

Look into brain stuff. Production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff. Lauren both Obama here. If you're considering a summer vacation to fictitious land then skull island isn't eco-tourism dream. Come true they are. You can avoid the genetic mischief of drastic parks Isla New bar end the radioactive horror of monster island but still visit a place where prehistoric creatures thrive in the wild skull island. Sometimes sometimes called. Kong's island is home to perplexing array of organisms as captured in the nineteen thirty three film King Kong and its sequels and remakes. It houses everything everything from native populations of Homo Sapiens to dinosaurs like tyrannosaurus and stegosaurus. And then there's the Ape Lord himself King Kong. Ah Unlike the dinosaurs tear soars and please sores palm. Island Kung doesn't quite line up with any known prehistoric beast even gigantic pethick. As the largest known primate of all time stood no more than ten feet tall. That's about three meters Kung however stands at least eighteen feet or five and a half meters tall in the nineteen eighteen thirty three film and is even taller in some telling 's sizing up like this can prove something of a risky move evolutionary speaking bigger bodies come with increased energy demands and body changes to keep everything from falling apart noted zoologist r McNeill Alexander once explained the King Kong would collapse under under his own weight. He'd be a hundred and twenty five times the volume of a real ape loaded with one hundred and twenty five times the weight but on the physical frame of a typical guerrilla. His legs simply wouldn't be able to support him. Essentially you can't just scale up creatures size and expect it to function the same way plus an apelike Kong might be big enough to defeat all its fellow beasts in a brawl but couldn't cope with climate change habitat loss or the destructive tendencies of human civilization. Even if he somehow could support weight being big isn't enough to cope with these other dangers. Priest titans like gigantic pickus and the giant Slavs present a valuable lesson in the vulnerability of life as giant land mammals national geographic ones pointed out that based on computer modeling of Heights. Every species species has an effective upper limit of size and the closer they evolved toward that size the greater the risk of extinction. Perhaps that's why King Kong is typically described as the last of his kind even skull island seems incapable of supporting a robust population of rampaging giant apes.

Kong species is at a dead end despite an alleged had sun cong popping up from time to time the population of this species has clearly dipped well below the threshold for genetically stable reproduction in other words. If there are female cones out there the resulting offspring would be subject to the sort of lack of genetic diversity that leads to genetic disorders and eventually extinction and Kong's not alone. Several real life species exist in the state of impending doom including the Baiji a freshwater dolphin once found in the Yangtze River.

Mitch Landrieu On The South's Racial Divide... And How To Bridge It
"I'm John L. Hanson in junior and welcome to another addition of him black America on this week's program divided by design with the Honorable Mitch Landrieu former mayor of New Orleans in Black America. You know so you know. We took all that information and said you know what are we gonNa do and one of the things we WANNA do is set up of an organization that helps number one. Educate most Americans about what the real history of our country is so that they can begin to understand institutional racism which clearly exists. Secondly we are going to Use Art Music Culture Sports to help change those stores and bring people together. We're going to do. Is We want to help. Train leaders and communities about what an equity agenda agenda would look like how equality and equity of two different things. And that if you really mean that everybody should have an equal opportunity that you have to design systems to do it and effectively. The conclusion was big picture was that the country is the way it is because we designed it this way and if we're divided you know somebody designed it so that we can be divided and if we want at the beach gather we got a redesign. It we gotta fix what we broke going up in the politically active and socially conscious family. Ms Landrus political roots. Run deep in Louisiana. Lisi Anna Way served two terms as governor and sixteen years in the state legislature and eight years as mayor of New Orleans to this any as seen seen firsthand how segregation and racism as affected communities in this country and particularly in the south over the course of year. His team met with people where they he lived. They traveled to twenty communities across thirteen southern states. They visit diverse parts of the region geographically demographically and culturally along their journey they had discussions in many different settings from one on one interview to small groups and roundtables to focus groups to community listening sessions. The capstone of their research is eighteen. Hundred Person Survey across the stage. They visited the report title divided by designs. The cavs for discussion or how. The American south experience issues of race and class in their communities. Recently in Black America spoke with Mayor Landrieu born and bred New Orleans Louisiana. The Anna one of nine children. We'd be my brothers and sisters. We got thirty eight kids and been here my whole life. There was an idea. What was I going up in New Orleans with nine kids families? You got to get to the front of the line as fast as you can get there. It was a I lived in a in a great neighborhood. We played street ball all the time. came from a big family. You know born and raised the and it was just a just a Lotta fun growing up. It's hard once you grew up in New Orleans to live anywhere else. 'cause wait okay. I'm sure everybody everybody feels good about the neighborhood. Do they grow up in what we we had a good time. What was it about your family and politics? You know it's an interesting. My Dad was a was a poor kid. He didn't hardly Nichols Rub together. Did know anybody grew up in a house that was about eighteen feet wide and sixty feet deep and live right across the street from from a cemetery grew up in a store room of his mom. Is You know house where she was. selling stuff to folks in the neighborhood he got around. You know after I got out of law school. Who figured that he wanted to try to do something good and ran for office and you know from there the whole family? Has You know based on what my mom and dad's work has been been kind. Kevin Gage the public service. Now not all of my brothers and sisters are in elected office. But you know they. They have spent their time. You know kind of following the lead of trying to give back where they could. In in your opinion what makes New Orleans such a vibrant city and people want to visit as often as possible. Well you've been here. Yeah you know we were talking a little bit Before your daughter went to school here this is a we celebrate it out three hundred dollars bursary this year. We have always been a very diverse place rich culture. You know history is such that and this is part of one of the efforts. I'm working on it we were. We were a huge Originating spot for slavery in America we also had the influence of the French the Spanish German. It was because of bovine. History is sorted history in some parts glorious than the others it has been a melting pot. That's reflected the soul of the country very culturally rich culturally deep and it has just been a really interesting place to live. You know I like to think of losses At least reflecting both burst both both the best and the worst of America because I- diversity from the beginning has been Great strength and You know it's it's it's got. His problems bought thought. You know. It is very reflective of the full diversity of what we hope that. America's GonNa be one day we're new became mayor of New Orleans. The city was experiencing just after Katrina. Give us a snapshot of how the city has progressed. Since that time. Well everybody remembers. I mean if it's almost like when nine eleven hit you remember where you were. Most people remember where they were. When Katrina hit? I mean it was a defining moment for us because the whole city was destroyed. I mean we. We got beat to death by that storm. I mean literally. We lost eighteen hundred of our brothers and sisters and bothered fathers aunts and uncles and kids every physical structure in the city. Almost underwater seventeen feet of water for weeks. I mean we had to rebuild this thing from nothing and you know like when when you're in a tragedy you come together because you have to you know you you better you better find somebody that can lift you up. You're not GonNa make it and you better listen body else up. But they're not Michael Baker and out of that tragedy. The people of New Orleans you know had a common focus and we came together. We had to rebuild all of our schools. We rebuilt the hospitals. We're opening up a brand new airport Next week with the rebuild all of our schools and we had to get our feet back underneath us and so you know although it was a very tragic tragic moment in the city miraculously. I mean the people found a way to rise above lots of different things. That separate us and rebuild the city and so the city is doing really really well. Now it is. It's further along than I think. People expected it to be. I think people now can look at the complications in Puerto. Rico go on in other places. It's hard to come back when you get beat. You know by by a natural catastrophe like that you'll see these wildfires in California put some communities. He's on the back one of the interesting things about it and this is something that we've all known is that people had stuff before the storm had an easier time coming back then people. That didn't have stuff. You know. So generation wealth and resilient to the communities are all very much an important part of. You know making sure that that you're ready to come back and it's been a little bit uneven but you know the city if you came here you'd be surprised at how how much progress has been in the last thirteen years the sand obviously with the rebuilding of New Orleans. You had a team. Well who are some of the other individuals that one part of the city government that you leaned upon on to get advice and insight. Well the truth is and I'm not trying to be cute here but the answer is everybody in the the only way that the city could come back was by having everybody in the world and help us so we got huge numbers of a financial and philanthropic donations from other countries Um working with the president of the United States was really really important in his cabinet. Getting the state government the local government but on the ground down on the ground having the faith based Community Mutiti the not for profit community you know individuals at all wanted to help everybody in kind of deal and You know there was so many people it'd be hard to call out. I want to but literally as I was the one of the most blessing. Blessed things was no matter who restarted. The answer was always yes. And that's why New Orleans feel so thankful to the rest of the country for all that that you guys gave us and so you know we want people to come visit and see it you know. I think you'll be surprised. You know we're like any other big city in America we have challenges and that will be here before Katrina and we're trying to figure them out from housing. The transportation redoing the criminal justice system all of those things. We still have great challenges with. But we're better off than we were before the storm.

How Do Wolverines Work?
"Bring stuff a production of iheartradio. Hey Lauren bo-bottle here. The taxonomic family of weasels is a motley crue they can be slinky and shy like Pine Marten Org grouchy and taciturn like a badger. Ferrets otters are playfully curious and then there are honey badgers which are basically just resercher weasels but perhaps the most fascinating weasel is the wolverine the scientific name for a wolverine is Gullo which is literally Latin for Glutton Glutton. Not sure whether the team marvel knew that when they were designing experts broody anti hero but these animals seem legitimately super heroic not only in what and how much they manage to eat but but how they generally ace life in the northern forests and Alpine Tundra. They call home about the size of a mid sized dog but resembling a small bear. A Wolverine Green is a weasel of paradox weighing in at between twenty two and forty pounds. That's about ten to eighteen kilos. The males being larger than the females they defend territories stories greater than those presided over by Grizzly bears from forty miles up to three hundred seventy miles. That's between sixty five and six hundred kilometers and they do do it aggressively. They've been known to fight a wolf or even a bear off of a kill. That said Wolverines are omnivores eating pretty much whatever their sensitive noses does lead them to ground squirrels Moose mountain goats carcasses buried beaters under the ice and snow birds eggs berries etc.. They'll even dig deep under the snow to kill and eat a hibernating animal unlike a lot of other Arctic animals that deal with the long bitter winters by either hibernating or by grading someplace Balmier. A wolverines means dense frost resistant coat which at one time made them a major target for for trappers. It snowshoe like pause and the ability to jump through frozen meat and even bones make it possible for them to stay outside in the far north year round. They're also pretty hyperactive no matter what time of year. It is one wolverine wearing a tracking device in grand tent. National Park was found to have walked over five hundred miles. That's over eight hundred kilometers. In two months we spoke with Rebecca Waters Executive Director the Wolverine Foundation based in Bozeman Montana. She said they can go and go and go no matter what the terrain is like. They have crazy metabolism. And they don't hibernate so they're always out exploring also been known to Climb Hills and slide down on the snow repeatedly just for fun while curious and fearless wolverines coverings are almost pathologically cagey. They're nocturnal. So they're used to slinging around in the shadows and they've been known to stock researchers for miles without being spotted and just as for trappers of old had a difficult time catching wolverines and preventing them from robbing their traps. Modern researchers have had a hard time finding following and catching them Water said they're Wiley clever and playful. It's very hard to trap wolverine if you're trying to catch it to kill it but they know when the research live trap is out and they'll return again and again a for free meal. Sometimes they'll take part. The camera straps that are set up nearby or play with loose ropes or wires but but as difficult as they are defined in the flesh. It's not tough to find where they've been. One of the common names for Wolverines skunk bear or stink bear because they spray verriest landmarks and sometimes enemies with a special concoction of metal beauty knowing acids from their anal glands the smell of which has variously been described as sweaty cheesy. Easy and like a Barnyard. They do this to communicate with each other. Since one male might have three or more females living in his territory raising his kits or babies with with him mails help raise the babies. Wolverines also communicate vocally with each other and especially their kids in mother wolverines dig burrows sometimes fifteen eighteen feet. That's four and a half meters under the snow to protect their kids from predators and the cold. Although wolverines are currently considered a species of least concern of extinction action having bounced back after nearly going extinct during the nineteenth century due to habitat loss and aggressive hunting poisoning and extermination campaigns. They're currently facing new threats. The water said habitat loss and fragmentation are issues for the population in the lower. Forty eight states due to development wolverines require cold and snow which is mostly found at high elevations in the lower forty eight. Wolverines have very large territories

"Be a part of that new space yeah well I'm I'm gonna ask Dan to take the lead on the design discussion because the city is spearheading that effort but just to give folks a sense of what we're talking about when we talk about a public market one is for our mass in public market it's a year round facility were gonna unlike the Madison farmers market does after six months or seven months of the year exactly a year round facility open year round it's enclosed in a dynamic vibrant space we're gonna welcome over five hundred thousand visitors a year both local and out of state because it really is a place for both visitors and residents alike will love to be and we're looking at sixteen to twenty million dollars of local products sales every year so this is a pretty significant project so just help us out how did you come up with those projections of five hundred thousand visitors and next number millions of dollars yeah we're we get that data from yes of the five hundred thousand was based on two things one looking at other public markets and similar communities across the country but then also looking at some of the most popular destinations here in our community like old brick gardens the zoo overture and getting a sense for what then what we know about public markets what that attendance numbers realistic we actually think five hundred thousand is conservative and as the market grows to be a beloved destination that attendance also grow I think in Milwaukee they welcome well over a million people every year and then in terms of the economic number the product sales that's based on a few different studies Dan do you do you wanna describe that a little bit more yes so we did we did a market study for the project couple years ago and those estimates are based on some analysis of the number of people within different radii of the site in their spending habits so that that estimate is you know kind of based on some assumptions about like how many people come to the market from different areas and and how much they would they would spend per visit I just want to insert here a question that came from I believe a listener Amy and she's interested in knowing so the people who run the farmer's market primarily the Dane county farmers market on Saturdays what what what's there thought about this do they see this as competition or they see this is synergistic yeah so we you know we've been in touch and work regularly with the the Dane county farmers market manager Serra in you know I think there is a lot of excitement around how the public market in the Dane county farmers market can against of work together you know the Dane county farmers market is beloved it is the best farmers market in the country and the the the Dane county farmers market has some very specific guidelines for its vendors in our hope is to really build on that you know the farmers market is sort of exclusively produce with some baked goods the public market will have a little bit of cheese and some cheese you know we'll have a little bit of a wider array at the public market and I think what we'd like to see over time is that the public market becomes sort of another venue where some of the Dane county farmers market vendors can have their product you know we've nothing is set in stone but we've explored the idea of the public market may be becoming the winter home for the day and county farmers market you know we love to see the Dane county farmers market vendors bring produce at the end of the day that maybe gets you know turned into products that are sold in the market so there's lots of interesting ways with it that's a really there's some synergy absolutely so want to go back to the question I had about design sure before we do I just want to remind our listeners that you're listening W. O. R. T. eighty nine point nine FM public affair I'm your host Ron Luskin my guests today are Dan cannoli of the city of Madison and Amanda white of Amanda why consulting and we're talking about the planning in the status of the Madison public market we welcome your calls if you would do is to call please Kallis's six await two five six two zero zero one so Dan I I set that up and I'm gonna go about the theater of the mind talk to us a little bit about the design plans as you can share them with us sure right now we and do so when the words rather than pictures yeah well it only kind of walk you through it so so starting with the the site itself so the the location as we said a few times is the corner of Johnson and First Street so the building is really purchased at a key location in the city it's kind of where the the city narrows into the isthmus it's up to the edge of the capital east district and kind of the the bridge between the capital east district on the north side if you're entering town from the north side or from the airport as you head down Packers Avenue you'll see the public marketable will generate a road begins to Kerr yeah you kind of come around the curve years ago by Oscar Mayer and you'll be heading right right towards the the public market so it'll be a great gateway into the city for for visitors or anyone kind of coming into town from the airport it's got great visibility is good great traffic counts nearby and then the site is also located adjacent to Burge Jones park which is a big ten acre city park and then from there adjacent to the our rivers so so there's this key site it's great great outdoor space in addition to the endorsement absolutely so we you know we hope that the public market energy kinda spills into the park and really connects down to the river so in those regards the they were really excited about the site and then as we kind of it into the building I think the first thing to note is that the building is an existing building and from a sustainability standpoint the most sustainable building is one that's already exists that already exist so were saving the embedded carbon in the embedded investment in this building by re using that the city's fleet services operation is moving out of this building there is likely no other use that would use this existing facility it but for the public market the building would be torn down so as people like to say you're going to bring it to a higher and better use exactly and engineers like to say it has good bone it does meaning good structural integrity yeah the building was built in nineteen fifty three it's CMU cinder block brick construction building with the the fiscal side so it's it's it's got a built to last it's built to last it has a very thick structural concrete slab underneath it it's designed for fire trucks and garbage trucks to drive into it so it's built it's built solid in when you look into the interior of the building it doesn't look like much from the outside it's kind of designed to blend and we'll we'll change that with some treatments on the exterior but if you go into the building you see that it's got eighteen foot high clear span spaces so it's a it's it's divided into these giant garage spaces that are very open kind of big bays sig bays lots of natural light there's lots of big sixteen foot overhead garage doors which we're gonna keep so open it up so even on the part exactly so the the building will be have this great sort of indoor outdoor vibe to it the the sort of general plan is you know two of the big days will be used for for vending and then one of the big base will be more of an open kind of flex events space which we great place for community banquets for concerts for events for you know maybe a winter day in dances maybe food carts can pull in there and then in between there's a two story space with a mezzanine level and really most of the mezzanine space is gonna be seating so imagine you know you're going to the market there's these big open clear span spaces and then you can go upstairs and actually sort of future meal while you overlook all the activity in the energy going on in the market hello you so the the design approach is really you know using the the assets of this great old building and leveraging them to create a market that's going to be kind of a unique experience it's going to be one of those essential Madison places where people from across the Midwest across the country are gonna say what have you seen what they did in Madison with the public market they took this amazing old you know fifty thousand square foot city garage and created this amazing place it's going to be something people talk about something people will want to come visit man anything you wanted to add from what you heard Dan describe about that facility well we're also looking at the site is a fairly large sites so they'll be on the good number of parking spaces everybody always asks about parking and somebody just did ask about parking so thanks for sharing that so when you did the studies relative to the traffic patterns what's the anticipation about whether that's gonna create some congestion Anna Daniel takes sure so you know one the one thing one fortunate thing though it's kind of a pain right now the roads around the site are under construction this year's so the project will benefit from coming online rather for to this yeah with with new you know with new roads around it so that will kind of increase the accessibility and and to sort of general access to the site and then from the parking standpoint they'll be a driveway into the site offers street another driveway off of Johnson street depending on the final site plan hundred twenty or so parking spaces on the site so it should be very accessible to be very visible we want to make it easy for people to get in and you know get into the building then and spend some money it's also worth pointing out this site is got great transit access it served by about two hundred buses a day well and it sound great it's it's really well located for bike axis is well when you think about the our river there's the path that runs lake to lake and then there's the bike Boulevard that heads down the phone straight into the downtown so speaking of the river to somebody had approach of by boat absolutely yeah so here's my attempt at humor it sounds like there's not going to be any congestion that's created anymore so then when the train comes along and stops traffic that's true and you know run one other thing I wanted to mention about the site is eat it you know Dan mentioned having these large garage doors that can be opened to access the outside and so the design team is designing these really interesting community spaces outside the facility along the building so they'll be a couple outdoor plazas with seating maybe art work places where some food carts could pull up in the warmer months in the back of the building by one of the large garage doors were wanting to create kind of this outdoor market porch where people can gather hang out maybe some lounge type chairs along with seating tables maybe there could be some outdoor music there so again all of the spaces and the design is intentionally trying to create these spaces within the market that are places where people can gather and and enjoy socializing and relaxing and having it truly be a community gathering area so another individual that I seized and brought on your team is Megan Ballard and she's an employee of the foundation that's correct she is the project that she's a project coordinator and were very lucky to have her on board out there's nine on board members on the foundation board right now and as you can imagine with a project of this size lots of work that goes along with it so Megan has jumped in head first and is supporting the board in getting a lot of this the work done around artwork in the market vendor selection the operating plan and and community engagement and I think she's at a good background in this type of work in the community she's been here for a few years and was most recently at one of the malls west on it yeah she was the manager for west town mall for many years so she worked she really under stands attendant leases and tenant communication and managing a larger facility and we're working with the public and say exactly things of that exactly and she also was up in Wausau I believe and did to community economic development up there so she's had some some great experience and were so happy to have her as she was a board member actually for several months before being the project coordinator so she's she's a welcomed addition so the remaining minutes so let's talk a little bit about the board and then other aspects of community involvement of you said the board is comprised of how many individuals right now nine people and how are they identified recruited and are you looking for more people that perhaps during the sport yeah we are actually so you can learn more information about the public market foundation and the board at Madison public market dot org we the process for finding our current board members the board was founded by three board members in twenty seventeen and since then has grown we've had a couple different public outreach opportunities where we've put out the opportunity for the board and ask anybody who's interested to submit an application and that's how we ended up with the nine fantastic leaders that we have were actually interested in adding three to five more board members over the course of the next several months and so if anybody out there has an interest in being on the mass and public market foundation board would love to hear from you at you can email info at Madison public market dot.

"Arrested yesterday, he's trying to pull like an Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson style takedown. But he lacks the finesse. I think is the problem that he's suffering from there. Good morning and welcome. So it was really honestly, President Trump should be checking with an astrologer something because the kind of week he's been having the kind of a weekend and add Monday, he's been having. It's pretty amazing. Who is it? Donald Trump junior yesterday. I think it was that text it out mega Michael avenue, Atty. Got arrested mega got a little make America. Great again thing. Mike eleven Atty. Got arrested. In the meantime, we have all kinds of updates on all kinds of important stories. They they Trump Justice department is siding with a court ruling that has essentially killed ObamaCare. You're. May remember John McCain is vote swung at the very last moment against President Trump and repealing ObamaCare and that won the day for the Democrats. And that's one of the things that has frustrated President Trump regarding the late Senator John McCain now that said the ObamaCare thing has been making its way through the courts and a number of states have filed suits against the federal government because of the mandate. And now a court has the federal government is like, no, you must and the states many states have been arguing that it's unconstitutional, and it's been making its way through the courts and a court ruled in favor of the repeal of ObamaCare, not replace just the repeal, which means that the news media CNN in particular MSNBC, the rest of them are really calling the news media. We're gonna have to come up with a new term for them. They disgraced former news media organizations known as. They're very exercise because millions of people with preexisting conditions are going to be dying in cardboard boxes in the streets, except that's not true. They're just they're just back to lying again. I got I turned on the television this morning. It was quite remarkable that bleach blonde Bimbo. What's his name? Joe Scarborough, Joe Scarborough, he was on the television with that inflatable flotation device sitting next sitting there smugly with pursed lips just they're unbelievable. There should be wearing uniforms, and they were prattling on this morning with a whole new set of lies as though yesterday said of lies. We're not revealed as though as though nothing happened, which is by the way, exactly what I predicted. What happened last Friday when I was talking about the possible release of the Muller report, which would establish that there was no Russian collusion and hypothesized theorized as to the response the reaction from the. News media, and the Democrats, and I've got to say it was right on target. It was directly spot on as the British say at it's exactly what they're doing. They're acting as though we haven't been going through this for the last two years and that Russian collusion wasn't important late night TV which is just another element of the democratic party's propaganda machine. With the likes of Jimmy Kimmel on Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel last night, actually had the temerity to declare they to these opening monologue. It's almost all anti Trump democrat talking point stuff and Kimmel do you have that sound bite there Jimmy Kimmel last night in the in the monologue doing the funny stuff? We everybody knew. There was no Russian Khalid that nobody thought there was Russian collusion. Then we known from probably didn't collude with Roger because he could never pull that off. Did collude probably would have been by accident. There and did what he had to basically from the White House the same way. Lori Laughlin got her kid into USC. It's the democrat machine at just at never concedes defeat at never admits error it lives. It's the line machine. It just keeps lying yawns its mouth gets larger and larger. So that those giant lies can get out. And speaking of Adam shiftless, there are several Republicans remarkably perhaps calling for Adam shiftless, and I say Kevin McCarthy was stumbling through trying to explain why Adam Schiff should what did he say step away step back from the intelligence community. Nobody even knows what that means. Kevin McCarthy, the Republican leader in the house of representatives was trying real hard to explain himself. Do you have that audio? Oh, you do. I didn't even know you had Kevin McCarthy. Tried to explain that Adam Schiff now started I think because Kellyanne Conway on the White House lawn said that he should resign from congress, which is much better. It's much better. Starting point just for. The record case Saudi Republicans on the hill are listening just start with a full blown by the way. It shouldn't just be him. It should be swale well and some others as well. And they should be called upon to resign from congress because what they've been gauged in over the last two years may very well turn out to be criminal activity. I it's prison for all of them. They're going to be shacking up with Michael avenue. Eddie who by the way is in jail and not he's not being allowed bail, and he's trying to shake down the Nike corporation that it didn't work out real. Well, it was rather amateurish that it was, but it was funny, and he was arrested they slapped the cuffs out and brought him sets really quite remarkable. It's the the whole thing what a what a country. So we've got ObamaCare big news on ObamaCare today in the courts. We've got big news on the wall. The president is pulling a billion dollars from the Pentagon budget to build another fifty seven miles of eighteen foot high barrier. The Democrats are dead set against it. In the meantime, the immigration people were forced because the Democrats have limited the space that they have available. Two warehouse people as they flow across our border by the hundreds of thousands. The Democrats are fine with that. Because they're not on our side, and they want to perpetuate the child sex trafficking because the democrat party benefits from that in many ways. And of course, the drugs because seventy thousand dead Americans from overdoses in a year is about the right number as far as the Democrats are concerned. So they want to keep that train going, but the immigration people were forced to take one thousand illegal aliens and drop them off in downtown San Antonio yesterday day before yesterday one thousand people because the overflow crowd. You know, it's like a Trump rally overflow crowd. So a thousand illegal aliens were just dropped off in downtown San Antonio the other day, which is not exactly New York City. It's a smallish kind of smallish of city. And I assume that this is karma for the city council voting against Chick-fil-A. Is that what you're thinking? Yes. Last week. The city council in San Antonio said Chick-fil-A values are not their various, well, maybe hunter and values are your values. Congratulations. You're the grand prize winners of the democrat party's program here one thousand people dropped off busloads and busloads, advance and vans. People just dropped off a thousand people because the Democrats have made sure that we don't have enough space for all the people coming in. And it's not by accident. It's by design it's very much on purpose. But where were we going there? And there we're going to what's his name. Are we going to Kevin McCarthy is trying to explain Kellyanne Conway came out and said that Adam shiftless should resign from congress. And then Kevin McCarthy was asked about it. And he didn't even come armed with this. He had involuntarily. He had to be asked about it. And then he kind of bumbled and stumbled through it and used words and phrases that I'm not familiar with. And and suggested that I don't know what he was suggesting he should step away. Does that mean he should step down as the chairman? He should resign from congress that the party should remove him from his powerful chairman posts of the intelligence committee. What did he mean Kevin McCarthy, even before the Mola report, remember what Adam Schiff said more than two years ago that he had more than circumstantial.

"So I had to walk into the dive bar. So can you tell tell us a little bit about the diaper? Yeah. That that was a while ago. I wasn't delete on that project. But I was involved in terms of structural that was a huge undertaking. That that tank is about seven thousand gallons, I I can't remember the link is probably forty feet long seven feet deep and roughly seven seat front to back the windows kinda KENDALL Evert out, and it's perched up above where the bartenders stand. So the bartenders when they're working they're actually working below the tank the tank can levers out from the wall and patrons when they're on the other side of the bar. They can look up. Up into this angled window, that's angled down towards them. The steel structure that went into supporting that into Canada. Leveraging you know, supporting that cantilevered load is amazing. They an engineering firm designed that. And it's it's all steel construction that ties into the main building structure, the steel goes all the way down to the basement, and then crosses the opposite side of the room to support that that cantilevered load, and so all the life supports in the basement. And the interesting thing that you know, about that tank is that a mermaid swims in it in the evenings when the bar is open. So until till she or he I think Merman actually get in there as well. We'll do laps back and forth across the tank. We built it. And then we handed it off to a local maintenance company. So I actually haven't seen that tank in probably five years. So hopefully when you saw it it was still looked like it was being maintained. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think it was and you guys got real authentic mermaids and mermen. Right. I mean there. Yeah. We went okay, we had a major collection trip to go. Collect those days. That's what I figured. Hey, I want to talk about the Amazon dot com tank. How did you end up getting that job? And I mean, it was amazing really beautiful. And I, you know, if you don't mind describing it a little bit as well to the listeners, but can talk us through how that all happened in everything that's in it. Yeah. Actually, that's one of my favorite builds. It's not a huge. I mean, it's a large tank. It's eighteen feet long two feet to back to feet tall. So it's volume wise, it's, you know, seven or eight hundred gallon. So it's not huge in terms of the projects that we do. But it's probably one of my favorite installations. We were contacted by Amazon dot com. Their director of horticulture that oversees all of their dates all of their outside landscaping, and they have a massive kind of two acre greenhouse outside of Seattle where you know, constantly growing plants.

The brain-breaking backstory to the 'House on a Rock'
"Today. We wrote about a place called the house on the rock. It's a tourist spot about an hour west of medicine, Wisconsin open to the public in nineteen fifty nine and Ashley and I have both been there separately. And just wow, it's I cannot explain it to anyone and we're going to try do you like it? I love it. It takes four hours to get through the whole thing. And when you exit you feel like your brain has turned to mush did you have that experience I came out and angry person hated every second Theo's there. It is a nightmare. Oh my God. I couldn't handle it. So you're going to get two very different very different experiences. From from Ashley here's the history of the house on the rock, or at least what we know about it. It was built by a guy named Alex Jordan junior, but his origins are a bit mysterious in some versions of the story. He started his project is kind of a spite house after he had an unpleasant encounter with the legendary architect. Frank, Lloyd Wright, and Frank Lloyd Wright had an iconic home about ten minutes away from the house on the rock in other versions of the story. Jordan had more vague explanation for his creation, quote, one thing just sort of led to another unquote either way, Alex Jordan lived there for about fifty years, the house sits on deer shelter rock, which is a massive stone column that rises up from the Woodland's all around it. The mansion contains fourteen rooms and they get progressively weirder. And when we save room talking about like your living room, some of these rooms are really very large. He started enlarge comfortable rooms filled with massive, fireplaces and chandeliers hanging over dimly lit chambers. Then the quote unquote, adventure begins the affinity room is next and it sets the tone for the rest of the experience. This is the room. I thought was kind of cool simple cool. It's two hundred eighteen feet long and tapers to a single point one hundred fifty six feet above the forest floor. So it creates the illusion that the walls extend into attorney picture, basically, a long triangle jotting out from this house and the point of the triangle is just hanging with no support just in the middle of the air above a forest, which is kind of terrifying. So then you go deeper into the house and you'll find a massive indoor carousel aglow with twenty thousand lights and one hundred eighty two chandeliers, then there's the anti gun collection the music of yesterday room filled with old fashioned instruments and automated musical devices and the Dollhouse room boasting literally thousands of miniature figures among the cannonball powered clock. And the two story. Rube Goldberg machine, you cannot tell what's real. And what isn't here's another fund? Fact, the house claims the indoor carousel is the largest carousel on the world. But the truth behind that is unclear at best some of the NT guns in the anti gun collection are real, but others are just guns. Alex Jordan had made in an old fashioned style. And I'm just going to put this out there Ashleigh, why is there a two hundred foot long seem monster hovering above a gigantic room. Among literally, hundreds of model ships and looking glasses and other nautical fem- stuff to break, your brain. Of course, it is crane breaking so possibly the most bizarre place you'll ever see. Maybe a love it. Maybe it'll be a living nightmare. Please. Let us know. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Joel Embiid's struggles continue in Sixers' loss to Raptors
"Lot of hype around this raptors Sixers matchup last night. It was a close game during the first half second half, the raptors pulled away not much apprising about the result. But what I found. So surprising was the poor performance of Joel Embiid. You think he tweeted after this one not at all, especially if it was anything about the raptors, what is show me is that the Toronto Raptors have productive depth upfront that can compete on both ends of the floor pass Cousy Jakko, obviously surge a box plan, the small boss center was able to play against Joel Embiid one on one on the post, and then take it to him ofensive -ly. Yup. Big time score. And then you see in the pick and roll koala Linter taking advantage of Joel Embiid with Valentine's who had a big game off the bench and again right here. And the other thing it made me realize that they miss Dario Saric front height. Another guy. What high another guy will ball another guy to give fouls in? So Joel Embiid against the raptors they terrific job. Neutralizer him. On both ends of the floor. And that's why they had a commanding victory. I'm not gonna put all of this on Embiid. I felt they didn't post him up that much. They didn't really like run place for him in the second half. I felt like they would give him the ball. And they run someone around him for a handoff. It didn't feel like they were featuring him at that point. Well, here's you can't necessarily get feature. When it got his guard and us pushing you instead of you posting twelve feet are on lane line is pushing you out sixteen to eighteen feet and usually on a nightly basis in beats advantage. Besides the fact, he's Uber talented is he's usually bigger or stronger, then a guy he's guarding or vice versa. Search was not as big strong enough to push him away from the floor. Now, he has the athleticism and keep it from driving around on that one clip you show search offensively taking it right here bully ball in NB fails, bang bang. So it's not only on MVP cl-. Clearly, but as the game progresses, Ben Simmons, not a three point shooter can't shoot free throws to take the ball out of his hands. Jimmy Butler was terrific. So I was Leonard those guys scored over thirty five points, but the whole in the coverage yesterday was that God is playing like an MVP candidate usually didn't play. So well at Toronto. And that was Joel another thing the Sixers defensively there was so confusing is at one point was four for four from three and he kept getting open threes if he's four three he's quiet Leonard like, maybe maybe put guy near you know, it was it was odd bad performance from the Sixers especially in the second
