Tough Airports with Pilot to Pilot
"I'm GonNa Bring Justin. See here he comes. Hey there's my man has then. Are you actually looking up at four flight up with my computer? And I was looking up bested when you're talking about it because I know seen it before in my mind is not like I don't even know if I WANNA fly. They're like Oh yeah. You know it's funny. Some sometimes that stuff's really intimidating but the rules you have to follow making for example. If you're coming down through Elgin and Valparaiso there I think it looks. I mean obviously be having to talk to their tower Roy. Once you're talking to their tower than your you know everything's Kinda worked out for you with the floor capabilities. File Easier that's funny. I was going to ask you about that because you're flying into so many different types of sorts. That's pretty much what you guys do. All the time right. It's just file a far. Yeah we will most are flights Are we can't take off the far far up in the air but we like to keep it many times. It's awesome just because it does help the have. Atc talking to you. We're GONNA get a busy airports. I never even expected to be really busy. There's one in Minnesota really crazy student training area. And there's like six or one seventy two pattern at a time mixing via far in just the Afar general. It can be a lot safer going I- Afar when you have the opportunity to do so. Yeah I totally see that Aspen. Airport there any over. It's like that that you guys going to where your company says we're GonNa have to do extra work with you guys or you have to fly in their inexperienced captain. I or something like that. We do similar trading on ask than we have a whole like Aspen lesson where we have to to land at Aspen. Show that we can do that. Another one's called Ocean research is a private airport down in Florida. And it's a really skinny and kind of severi interesting airport which we have to get checked out in the simulator. I I think we have to do it. Every every couple of years just to get retrained because our wings actually hangover the hedges when we go into land so it's very interesting but it's a very popular destination. While can you say just briefly? What's so challenging about aspirin? I that's SORTA aspirins just very interesting place. I mean if you even just look up the approach tar and you can see the glide. Slope like seven degrees. Maybe maybe it will literally feeling like you're going straight down at catch it. The site pictures just so messed up and then you have like a mountain right here. Airports a little bit farther forward. You can't get the glide slope warning fear when you come here I. It's hard for me to really explain it unless you're going. There are other chart in front of me. But it's there's a lot going on at Aston you gotTa be under your pointed down so far that you're speaking to come even if you have the Steve Breaks out so it's a very interesting airport for sure. Yeah that's wild. I mean we flew in there all the time in one. Eighty Two's mountain checkouts in Eagle Aspen than through loveland. Pass out toward lead though and all that now one eighty two. It's not a huge big deal. It's totally different. When you've got a jet can handle up pretty well so it's not too big of a deal but it definitely interesting. We don't take it down to the purchase so that we have the the airport site at a certain fixed remember. Stop ahead now. But we have special charts going in there and then. There's some other mountain airports where we don't need to be checked out in but we have a special area in our. Aol were read up about it before released before we go so we know the challenges that airport could cost. That's interesting I think. The last accident I remember at Aspen was a challenger from that mistake and landed with a tail rent. That's yeah that's very commonly. I WANNA say they landed on the taxiway almost other grass remember astronaut now or another airport. Another airport was. They didn't know that the runway was just pay. They thought the runway was covered in snow so they saw a freshly paved runway but their mind. They thought that it was supposed to be snow-covered sir. Lynden to the right or to the left of the runway landed on grass. Wow that's so fascinating that you just said that because somebody else I think it was. Brian Shift pigmy the other day he was doing lecture for Nasty. Just wanted to know if I thought about something. He was calling expectation bias in training right and I didn't really know any man I was like. What do you mean by expectation bias? And then he told me a little more it was basically what you just described. It's like how do you deal with when your mind is set on seeing one thing? That's what you're expecting. And then something different is happening and to be honest. I don't see it very much in training but what you just described was perfect. Exactly what the talk about do you guys talk about that at all in your training that specific conflict We'll make a big deal about going over all the threats that could be going on so as soon as we brief all the threats. We kinda talk about all the threats. This threat might be kind of one that comes up on the fly. But if there's ever a moment where you feel any kind of confusion or you feel any dow it's like immediately go around this. Go take off. We'll talk about last hour. The runways taped or not paved or regain rebrith. We WanNA do. We can go somewhere else. We can talk about some things especially to ask them because the weather changes so often. We have a very strict kaylynn limit were. Some operators may be part ninety one. Maybe they don't relate abide by that but we do not go in there with a win more than two not talented. So if we're coming down on finally tell us that the tailwinds do high will do out and go around and go somewhere else. So it's definitely safety. And you always going to err on the side of safety so one person was real comfortable. You go out now. That's awesome and there's two things that you just said that I always hammer on my students about so I just have to act on. One wasn't aboard point where you're talking about having a certain way point if you're not on glide path through or whatever then it's just an automatic and the other is that a superior if it's eleven knots. Tailwind you're out you don't think about it. It's not ten anymore. It's eleven soared on once really good. That's good stuff. I feel like so many of those things that we can cement those for GE pilots. You know there was a guy that flew into Palo. Alto in a mean. I don't know if you've ever flown a Moonie but it's like doesn't want to stop flying. I mean not only. Is the wing like six inches off the ground at slamming her flow. It won't quit and twice in my career I've seen people come in and Mooney's and just go around late in one case and hit the trees on in this last case Palo Alto literally just floated till he went right off the end of the runway and that was a fatal accident. You know people say like what would happen. How could he avoid it? I mean abort point in any airplane is a great idea right. No absolutely and it's something that like you said when you drill down and generally aviation to create that kind of mindset. You always think that it's not going to happen to you but it can happen to you. You're gonNA find yourself in this situation. You don't feel comfortable. Then you gotta go around just like no if saying like you can't succumb to that mindset

Brexit: EU to ask UK to return Elgin Marbles to Greece in trade talks
"Greece has demanded the return of the elgin marbles as part of a free trade deal with the European Union. Now Greece insists that the fifth century. Bc models was stolen by Lord. Elgin a British diplomat from the Parthenon Temple in Athens over two hundred years ago. They say that was a blatant act of cereal theft. That was motivated by financial gain now. Jonathan Greece's being after the return of the marbles ever since they were removed so as being the has brexit. I wonder emboldened Greece to push. Harder is this symptom of of Britain's weakened international reputation. I think it has Imboden. Greece's seen an opportunity to bring up the OAKEN Mabul clay if you like again Just to Spain we'll probably do so with Gibraltar.

Low Country Showdown: Belgium vs. The Netherlands
"Days in Europe you hardly know when you've crossed the border but when you get to know each region it's clear. Cultural differences are as distinct and strong. As ever. You're it's fascinating that even as your continues to unite. The differences between the various regions remained so strong the historic nucleus of the European Union. Nyon was a trio of little countries known as Benelux Belgium the Netherlands and Luxembourg and it's very small area. It's fascinating in its complexity lexi. We're joined in the studio by a guide from Belgium and another from the Netherlands to explore the cultural differences between their two countries. Allen Yanji is guide in the Netherlands and Hilbert buys is from Brussels where he teaches at the European School of Communication. He teaches history and politics. And he works as a tour guide. Hilburn Hilburn and Ellen. Thanks for joining us now. Ellen you live in the Netherlands and you work as a guide in Amsterdam. What's your family's history are are you like? Have you been the Dutch forever or what yes. I've been Dutch forever but my grandfather was a German so they came over from Germany to the Netherlands and they settled in brabant. John's which is the south of the Netherlands. And it's a province that was divided when the two nations of the Netherlands and Belgium were created. Rob You have. Yes so so. You have north brabant. which is part of the Netherlands and you have south but album which is in Belgium and so you ended up in the Netherlands? Yes yes that. A blessing or a curse Both we'll talk more about that in just a minute. And he'll bring you Belgium your home. And how did you end up there because you sound like you have an American accent to me well yes. My parents are of Dutch extraction in fact but with NATO We ended up in in bracelets right. Grew up and have have managed to stay so you are European. If you're living in Belgium the Edison near you the cut up there and all the EU excitement. Now when you think about the low countries country's once it was all the same wasn't it The low countries the Spanish Netherlands. The Spanish Netherlands were separate from the Dutch republic but before the Spanish Netherlands became Spanish. Yeah we were all part of the Holy Roman Empire and then what happened because to me. It's kind of a cultural divide between Belgium and Holland today. You've got french-speaking speaking while loons and you've got Germanic speaking Dutch you've got Catholics and Protestants. You've got south facing German facing. Is that a cultural. Divide of some sort ellen. It is the language barrier has been there for a thousand years. It's not a part of Belgium. Belgium created as a nation in eighteen. Thirty it was was not that then. The language barrier started to exist is was already there long before tectonic plates coming together right here from Roman Roman speaking tribes heading east and Germanic speaking tribes heading west and so they joined up so you had these language barrier from Roman speaking and Germanic Manic speaking which is more or less where today's language barrier is in Belgium. So we're kind of talking about between the Netherlands and Belgium but also within Belgium. We've got this split with the north being more culturally and linguistically tied with the Netherlands in the south being more connected with France yes because of the language and of course because his French has always been the dominant language throughout the Middle Ages. When you had people who wanted to be anything in life had to be able to speak French and later on it it stayed the dominant language in the industrial era and Flemish was the local dialect so If the man comes into fix your door he's going to speak Flemish but if the the guy who runs the city the unknowns the bank. He's going to speak French. Yeah he'll burn if you WANNA have historically in the in Belgium has set the case if you want your kid to be made to meet a very important person. They should speak French. That isn't true today. No nineteenth century historically Boulogne. Yes polk were loon. The elite of the nation spoke French French because they were of nobility French has have replaced Latin as the dominant language in much of Europe travel. With Rick Steves. We're talking about the cultural differences between the people in Belgium Belgium and the people in the Netherlands. We're joined by Ellen. Yeah I'm saying from the Netherlands and Hilburn buys from Belgium when we think about we've been talking about or the origins of these countries. But we have this situation today where we've got a the Netherlands which is Dutch. Speaking in the northern half of Belgium which is Flanders Flanders. Right Phlegm is that is that the same language. The language is formerly the same in Belgium. When you go to school you go to a class called Dach- the way that in America when you go to school you don't learn American when no one you go to English when no one was called Nederlands? It's called Nigel why don't they just call it Flemish. Just because it's the vendors we share the lexicon. We share the dictionary if you read the dictionary which is produced for the Netherlands and Belgium collectively the only thing. You'll see his annotations in. The definition conditions will see used regionally or applied in Belgium this way and in the Netherlands Hall that way so what are the Flemish speaking people. The Netherlandish speaking people of Belgium. I'm well how do they relate to the to the Dutch. What is the cliches? What are the jokes saw? Well at the well at the Belgian. Talk here for a minute I okay. I'll preface this by saying I studied in the Netherlands Dutch origin. I really don't have to side with any of this. I have a nice anecdote with two friends who met one was Belgian. Elgin and one of them was touched in the Belgian tells the Dutch when he says do you know upon northern border. That's the end of culture to which the Dutchman responded yes that's true but on our our southern border that's the end of intelligence who we go and Ellen. What about you from the Netherlands How did the Dutch the think of the Belgians? Then what's a joke or a little insight into the cultural differences. Well there are many things that we like. And let's say on the plus side. We love the Belgian sense of Huma among which is kind of surreal. Sometimes we don't even understand it. They definitely have a different sense of humor than the Dutch have. And we sort of admire that because it's subjects are very frank and very straightforward very matter of fact. Yes I've got a Dutchman say I've been with him and he says you know it's it's exhausting I to carry on a conversation. Let's just not talk with each other and not be stressed out about it right so the to me. That was so Dutch a Belgian might be a little more no Belgians and more they like to keep themselves to themselves on more modest and you can experience this when you travel there for instance. You're in American and you're in Belgium and you want to ask something I think it's always polite to us. Do Speak English. When you're in Flanders they will say oh I don't know yes maybe a little bit and then you start a conversation and and you find out that the perfectly perfect well with England when you go to the Netherlands and you ask their Excuse me do you speak English. They so yeah. Of course. That's right so there. You have the difference. Like Belgians are more. Yeah more modest landed dot Chamo- assertive assertive described as self effacing using the Belgians are okay. That's that it's very. It's very nice. Also that in Belgium rules are a little bit less importance. Well it's it's more dramatic in the north breath.

"Friday Tracy Wilson. It's only for Our episodes this week were about Lord Elgin and the Parthenon Marbles and the ongoing controversy about them and calls to return. Turn them to Greece. I had an opinion about this before I started working on it just from the knowledge that Britain has had these in the British Museum for two hundred ish years And Greece has been like. Can we have those back for about that. Same amount of time. I'm and my basic opinion was maybe I'll should give that back. And now after having done all this research and having like read all all of this uncertainty about the Furman and the fact that elegance whole point was to put them in a shed on his personal property and they got shipwrecked and damaged damaged through over cleaning along the way. I I have the same opinion as before but like ten times as vehemence as I did before I got into it right. Do you consider any speculation about what could have happened to them if he had not removed them. I actually yes S. so It's pretty clear from a lot of different angles. That if he had not removed them at all they would have had further damage. Like there's there's just been a lot of documentation about the ongoing vandalism ray ongoing damage through all of those monuments for the pieces says that were that remains they are basically from the nineteenth century. Elga was there doing that. Work into the early twentieth century with Greece becoming An independent nation as it exists more as it exists. Today it was still a little. The structure was a little different when it first became independent than than has become. But I think that argument argument like that's a valid argument to be made there that if somebody had not removed a lot of this artwork and protected it then it would have been damaged further but at this is point like the nation of Greece has done so much work to build the museum. Yeah and to clean up its air quality and all that other stuff and just persistently sad can can we please have that back. It's like okay. If we have this argument of yes these pieces in a lot of ways. We're protected in some ways. They weren't protected because they wound up being shipwrecked trek over cleaned. And all this other stuff like okay. The the need to have them protected in this way is is over. Maybe we can return them to Greece now. I also feel like there are some really complicated issues there. Go yeah involving sort of like the paternalism of a lot of a lot of things we've talked about in on some previous shows before when when Somebody has said Oh. You know what I'm GonNa do is I'm GonNa make sure to preserve these things things because the local people don't seem to know what they have here. We're not really asking the local people or finding out what they do actually know or finding out like what the meanings of these sites are like. It becomes kind of complicated thing where somebody kind of trump's in and says I know what's best in the situation right which is not necessarily true a lot of arguments since against returning some of the things that nations have said. Can we please have that back. It's an important part of our cultural heritage and it was like it was removed during the colonial colonial period or during a war. Or we don't know how somebody took it and we don't have it anymore like a lot of the arguments that people make for not on returning them like some of them kind of boil down to the idea of well. We won't be able to see it in the museum if we give it back to you ray and like there is an element of racism racism in that argument. A lot of time like we need to make it easier for the white people to see this kind of the core argument of that sometimes. Sometimes and that's that's a little disturbing well especially because I think that that argument gets made in a way that is particularly nefarious purpose. which is like there? Is this veneer not always. But sometimes of the white people need to see this art because we're trying to understand and you like it's almost like we're show magnanimous. Were trying to appreciate other cultures. And you're not letting us and it's like that is a twisted way to look at this whole all thing. Yeah that's where my hackles get super up. I keep trying to think about it. In two ways that are conflicting one is like on a micro level level of like. Have you ever known someone in your personal life. who had some treasure that was perhaps in their family for a long time and they clearly are not taking care of it and don't understand what it is and there is that whole lake? I really wish he would just let me take this. Because it's going to be a wreck if I believe it with you forever and I understand that but at the same time it's there's right but I also think in the much bigger bigger picture sure of Lake. All of these concepts of nationality and identity around are to some degree constructs that we have made eight up around lines that are imaginary that we have drawn on maps and like that makes it a little trickier I. I don't the to work at odds like I said it's not. It's not a thing and I do understand. I mean I certainly know that I have been to museums and stood there and looked at things that were from cultures very far away from my own and loved them and Ben very happy to see them. But I also can't deny that like hey it sure would be cool for the people people were connected to this to have access to it. Yeah Yeah you and I. We've talked about our love for museums on the show a lot. Like that's come up a lot of times and I. I do love museums and I think museums can serve are really valuable role and I think that a lot of museums are really struggling right now as they sort of realized that like I live I live in Massachusetts. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has had a series of incidents. Where like they planned an Donovan that was supposed to be something positive without really taking into account the people they were actually representing like and and you know it? It reflects the fact that in a lot of museums. The the the curator's are mostly white. The board is mostly white and not necessarily. I'm not saying that white people can't do this job but not really having the viewpoints of the people who art work they're they're creating representing and shines through. Sometimes I can see how museums can be really problematic and in that kind of program and then also at the same time I often will be at a museum looking at a piece in front of me and my thought is like Whoa. Where did you get this rate? And how like that's the thing that I. I am thinking about a lot of times when I when I'm looking at a museum. Also also it's not entirely within the scope of the episode that we just talked about but this idea that if Britain returns the Parthenon Marbles a whole lot of other museums are gonna like. It's going to start start this landslide of museums having to return stuff. Like I think people have sort of this imaginary situation where Britain returns the Parthenon Marbles and then the people show up with the pitchforks and torches demanding. All of the art back and the walls are going to be totally empty. Like there's this weird fear like that's going to be the next step which I don't think is really what what would happen but that kind of fear has led to a couple of just really appalling crimes that I know no about one of them is here in the United States after the passage of the native American graves protection and repatriation. Act Guy named Thomas this months and he was acting as the park superintendent at at Effigy Mounds National Monument. which has its own whole? Series of controversies in its history. He stole the the bones of flake. Forty one different people that had been housed in their collection. The reason that he stole it is so those remains wouldn't be repatriated H.. Created to the people that they belonged to you right and in doing so. He basically destroyed the context of all of those pieces. Like the. That's like okay. Now how do we figure you're out who all these phones belong to you and they should be repatriated to like that was just a really horrifying crime that was motivated by racism mend by this fear of like returning things to the cultures that they came from. Yeah I also wonder if there is is another fear that is not really been introduced and this is purely speculation so please don't museum people come after me but I really wonder if there there is a subtler fear that starting to do something like this repatriating. These marbles will open up a Pandora's box where people really we start looking at a lot more closely in general at the Providence of art pieces that often in museums it reveal that are there are a lot of dirty hands along the way like. Yeah there are a lot of pieces of art that have been you know passed around through various private collectors. That probably never should have been in the hands a lot. The hands that they were in and that opens up a whole other moral discussion. Similarly of Lake should museum by a piece of art from a private collector actor where maybe they don't know how that person got it and be an entirely above board providence lineage in terms of when it was created doing this person has their hands in it there theoretically taking it out of the hands of somebody. This shouldn't have it and putting it on a wall but they are also indirectly perpetuating the problem right. I worry that that to you is probably part of the discussion. Either not happening but being thought about or happening but being Happening in a much quieter way right right it does open a Pandora's box of how our has moved through the world world for centuries. Yeah Yeah for sure for sure. I think that's probably likely in element in it also. Yeah the it's such a whole. Oh huge complicated important issue. Because like I've definitely been inspired to learn more about things buy things I saw. I saw museums and I've learned a lot from museums and there are so many like indigenous people people of color saying like. Hey that that's actually hours like it's it's not yours and I think there's a really incredibly important important voices to listen to you and elevate in all of this and in a lot of cases says when museums started working more directly with the people whose artifacts in their collections like. That's really made the museums experience a whole lot richer in terms of what information they've been able to share how they've been able to carry their collections. I am hopeful that that like the the world of museums will just continue to get more diverse. And in that way and we'll sort.

"Oh Yeah I mean just to just to just just to Expanding expound on that I mean you know really was so beautiful about all of it is that yeah just like with me you know I was on in the music business and I was at a point in my career and You know got into some trouble. Actually law enforcement knows I was like you said we came to different paths at. I was able to get past that to changed my life to give my life to God and you know get back on the straight and narrow and began to live on purpose and along the way you know God sends us the people that we need to our journeys into give us the full focus on the full vision what I wrote purposes even if by the started on on an adjacent fast you know and that is the. That's what brings us here. Today's what is what brings being ellison to every stop that we've made a longest journey that has been friend of mine. I love how you put that and Elgin your book. Why did this happen to me? This all of this really tells hells is very telling and let you talk about that here in a minute but I want to piggyback off. What you said James Because I want to take a few minutes to share with the audience when we always think about while? You don't understand or you're not like me and I wanna say something that's really important. We absolutely absolutely aren't like each other. We aren't supposed to be because each of us has connecting puzzles. That help each other grow to help make us us. Better people and deliver the purpose that we were supposed to be here to deliver and we can't do it without each other otherwise we'd all be the sing and I have a little road is supposed to be delivered to you. And you're supposed to deliver certain things to me and this is what it's about and and so this is really important. I'm glad you brought this up. This is just a very important key piece especially early with what both of you are doing right now. And you have something that you wanNA share in. My life has been a continuous journey and it seems like when you think you have come to. The completion of one chapter is like another chapter gives. Birth in. It's like you know. I believe that I am the author of my own book and I have the right to determine on my chapters were in so at all my trials in tribulations if assesses life brought to corner where I felt that I had to record my mazing journey because because I knew that I was not the only one like experiencing heartache some disappointment in family issues in crises in Harvey in all of the different things that we all have experience about a help of God. I have given a great foundation by my mother. My father my grandparents pastors my coaches my teammates any gave me a competitive edge to deal with some of the issues things that I was placing in this conflict. It's World Rebecca and I learned a lot of essence and the gist of this book is out of love and compassion for humanity and I wanted to offer experiences in light as given into need so that the next man. WHO's traveling down the path? I'm traveling down. Can have a list turbulent journey because of the lessons that I need to get back secondly I wanted to give. I wanted to give lessons lessons at my beautiful parents that given to me as a gift to humanity that my parents and their life and the legacy will never ever be forgotten through this book and so I started this journey. I started this journey with just an idea and sixteen notepads that I started recording my journey not knowing Outright a book not knowing out in but I was given a mission that I had to start and I just trusted God will help me to complete it in two years later I gave birth to my mazing book. Why did it happen to me? And that was the gist of the book. The out of that book stamp a compelling in a beautiful friendship with a young man is closed darryl my brother brother a guy that I lo a guy that to this day man I reflect back and deceit a blessing that God has given to me we by knowing this man and we were teammates with perhaps the greatest football organizations in the world in the world today rages ages so we share a DNA in the history of that great sports legacy and I was compelled to right a a movie. I wanted a movie to give rise to this great human being But I needed help as I knew some something I just said No. And somehow another guy gave me James his Man and he gave me James. James took all of the passion that I had at it became his passion. The two of US became one in this mission. And so we're at a very exciting exciting point where we have completed much of our. You know our call but we still have a long way to go before this movie. It sink throughout world a we believe do people like you. Rebecca in those listening through Alfie radio waves in the you know the podcast world that we will be able to complete his journey. So we're in a very unique stage right now where we just decided that we was not going to sell Out I went to California with this idea. I spoke the hallmark. I spoke to Sony. I spoke to all of the major studios and they sold this as a smash hit as a sports drama movie but they wouldn't need a compromise in other words to buy by me out and take it take control of it and I said No. We're going to happen so we decided to take the indy route that we had to work colluded harder we had climbed the mountain alluded bit higher. We had to go through more bumps in the road but we know at the end of this that we we would be successful. So we're in the process now of trying to locate wanted to investors maybe two three investors who embrace breaks at vision who understand the plight share the same spirit in life. It's week share. That can help get through this next journeys next phase so we're at that particular point where script is completed. A music is completed. A mission is completed. Now we'll the next phase ACE invest will be at right now riddick. I absolutely love it. This is such an important film to to be released. Because it's going to change and it's going to bring awareness to a number of of lives. This is this is really important in James of involvement with this as well yes stomach So when I got elgin first of all you know my background I've had two top thirty billboard hits I've been in music since Out Seventeen published deals traveled the world. You know have a big fan base in Europe and things like that so volunteers purposes. I am a music person but my initial degree was in English so In the last couple years I've been Farang off into screenplays writing movies of my own as well as Trying to shoot them and things of that nature so you know through a mutual friend. Elgin not wins reduced and he made clear that he wanted to turn this this chapter a friend of mine in from his book into a movie and You know initially it will just be another job you know another client you know cool guy. It's great you know first couple of three way calls but as I you know he sent me a copy of the book and I was able to read the book you know and it was such a wonderful book. His his autumn is autobiography itself. You know what kind of made me be drawn to everything that we were going to do with the movie. Because I'm like you. Yeah no disguise story needs to be told even know we're taking what could be surmised as a tragic part of the story and we're going to encapsulate that back and use it for the movie but you know just overall what what I really was drawn to. Is You know showing kings on screen showing owing brotherhood own screen in unabashed way instead of violence. Instead of you know a being against each other instead of you know liked to sentiment that's a lot of things that are visually put in front of you. Today with people are scared to be friends. People are scared to help each other people too scared to say they love each other people. Just get especially men you know. An across is a race John Rudd sexual preference. Doesn't matter you know specially manual. Nobody wants into show love you know. And that's what I I love the body so erected time you know we were able to put together basically the bulk of the script in about twenty one days because banned from the music world. I don't know how to write slow. You'd like I was informed that the average screenwriter takes about six months to accomplish Louis Wells in the night complex in those twenty one days but I apply the same tactics to script that due to a song so it just it just pours out of me especially when I'm asking you know so it didn't over the course of writing at Elgin attention to detail and his never ending passion passion fourth to be exactly like he envisioned it in his mind you know that's what forged brotherhood even through our disagreements. Believe me there were many Mannie fresh understand this like we. We were forged through our disagreements agreements. Because what the disagreement showed is that each of us had individual passion for and I wasn't just simply a screenwriter to him he wasn't just just just simply a client to me. You know both fell in love with the story and of course some signs of your being real being truthful and Y'all both grown you know at some point think you're going to disagree on things because the passions is just going to batter Ram against John. Was You know we made it through. Disagreements laughed about it because it just show that we both Wolf in love with this idea. Now and then there's you know I mean we were down to the point we're going back and forth over like a word in a line of because Z.. Thinks no I get it though because every when you only have an hour and a half to project something and make a lasting impact every line every phrase Howitt's conveyed everything that's said means something so I totally really understand what you're what you're saying I don't it was phenomenal and I want to thank all of you for tuning in to another episode of Rebecca Sounds. Reveille as you know. This message is very important and the passion that is being inspired by both of these individuals is something that I think that you should share with your friends. Your family your colleagues all of those you know and everybody that you don't thanks for tuning in.

"Said many many people went there. We have to think about treatments that were done for are mentally mentally. Ill people at that stage. It was the beginning stages so treatments like it was called a UTICA crib was basically like a child's crib with Basel Rhonda Soul. The people that were treated were basically confined without moving lobotomies. People are actually forty eight patients there were actually treated and injected with radium for you are for trying to cure but the only thing that that did was basically shorten their lives glow in the dark like the buttons we just gave sure for the violence seize. Your therapy was done there. Inducing seizures were broken bones what happened so a ton of people died in that area and they were buried read in the cemetery which actually backs up right to the old golf course which is nice. Anybody got a Birdie boom. There's a couple of tombstones right there breath. Is it still active. Do People Still Golfing Golf courses. I think it's the Hillsdale go of course goes. It's called the hillside sour teams. It was all right so it's actually right if you go there it's basically right back to back now that cemetery houses about nine nine hundred seventy four graves there most of them are unmarked and ones that are marked are actually made from the hospitals brick and mortar orbital blacksmith shop masonry shop that was used for the hospital because most of the people that were buried in the hospital cemetery were wards of the state or people that didn't have like the family families didn't have money to bury them so they'd give buried in the hospital cemetery now the worst part about it was stories say that there were sometimes four people to one grave buried at that gravesite so imagine nine hundred seventy four and maybe some of the lucky key ones got some of those brick and mortar gravestones and most of them didn't so you go out there now. There's a little plaque that the city county put up that said a member of the people buried there because the last group of people that were buried there were not much longer after the turn of the century but what after they shut down the Senate hurry burying there is a plaque there saying remembrance of the people that are buried there without the gravestones in grave sites or marker saying that they were there right and as far as the real spooky part of it orbs have been seen there. Anybody know what an ORB is. It's a it's light dust. It's dust particles in the lens according to Patrick or moisture moisture color coats by these photos with photos. Yep and there's paranormal. Research is actually have gone there and photograph this cold spots as well. L. VP's which is electronic voice phenomenon has been caught there and there's actually also been an EDP on a few occasions of a dog barking now what they suspect and what people believe is a story that this dog was one of the Gods dogs of one of the actual security that would work there that that pastathon whilst Walston duty and so the dog could here yeah wow yeah spooky some stories of groundskeeper before he retired. He shared a lot of his stories for money was there he hook furner. No okay sorry one arms Willie. No he shared some of his stories. He said he'd be walking along the areas that were a marked graves and he said he would just start feeling waves of uncondition sadness where he would just be walking and then just automatically start feeling sad feeling emotionally heavy. If that makes sense he mentioned the demonic dog he heard would be barking and often he would see pictures of a ghostly face that he would take himself or he would see. I had throwing the word ghostly Oy by hand so he would take pictures and he would actually see puffs of smoke pop up or what he would consider a pulse smoke that would be a it goes sleep face. I read some stories about a group of paranormal investigators that went there illegally by the way for all of the junior investigators out there as I call you guys the ghosts cadets. Do I'm not go to that cemetery after dark. Unless you have prior permission from the Elgin Police Department or the hospital you will get fined and you may get put in handcuffs so these guys went there illegally. No I'm reading. I'm quoting them directly Patrick. Yes we do yes their names were. Bob and Anthony I mean so they went out there and did some spiritual photography which in the long sense means they set up a camera on a tripod opened up the exposure to see what they find and in those photography those photos that they would take they found orbs they found ghostly faces and the crazy thing is they decided to start doing some recording and the second day click the record button. They started hearing sirens and they immediately. We ducked down and tried to go into hiding thinking that the police were coming to arrest them. The silence kept going and they kept hearing No no no ambulance no police car showed up and they put it up as a ghostly ambulance that was making those noises so what one of my thoughts was is about opening up the exposure. Do we have any photographers in here. Oh we have one so what would what what would happen. If you open up the exposure really why does it let him more light yes. It's the point so orbs let in. Let's him more light so that right there gets my skeptic senses tingle but I'm GonNa argue with you there for one moment so when you let up on the shutter speed you let opened a lot of white for orbs to make an appearance. The idea is that the whole frame or the whole photo may become more overexposed. If a flashlight was to happen the spiritual photography he is if you were able to catch just even dot and it doesn't over expose the entire photo then. You may have caught something. That's centralized. What people I'd say about that. This is it. It's Nick you WANNA. Come up here. Oh wow is pulling out raucous from freak of the week in Memoriam right after after this by the way so you're talking about taking photos at night at the cemetery yes so you're opening up the exposure which taking a long exposure yeah which means that when you get light that seems like something from unexplained source what happens is any small light source can get picked up on a long exposure which means it would be picked up but the person who's holding it or the thing that's causing. It may not know like like riding in dark. I agree come from any a lot of times those photos those are debunked with box dust particles but there are plenty of times those photos king be not answered and well sure are he can't answer because unless you're actually there during that entire long exposure time you don't actually get to hard you explain faces then. How do I explain like isolate. The idea long exposure person can come in for just it depends on how long these soldiers obviously but it could be if it's a three minute exposure if they come in and they look at the camera for two to three seconds. You're going to get a ghostly image of face settled for crispin goes by the way we're GonNa keep a ghostly county so this is what we should do. I think for all of our episodes bring in people to argue for us right like seconds right so it's like we don't have to just sit back and what that guy so. Let's hear it for Nick Bob. After Dark Anthony Team believe I gotTA. I gotTA attack a few more. Do we have time we do. Yes okay slow the inside time yes so these these infirmaries and these other parts of the hospital that were knocked down in the early nineties. We're actually subject did to urban exploration. I'll if you guys know what urban exploration gration is. It's a group of people that go out and explore abandoned or unused buildings usually for our purposes. The graffiti are still going there and spray paint photographers. Go there and get pictures of the case. It's actually pretty cool art movement extremely dangerous by the way there's Thanksgiving a lot of ideas to a lot of people well. May I point out that Bob after dark is not responsible for any damages injuries result urban exploration of paranormal investigation anyway so don't catch him as the Lioma sold these urban these urban explorers that were in there and these different buildings before they got knocked down would be reporting.

"Everybody know why there there are cold spots like why that happens micro climates. Michael Ever so basically the theory he is is that when a spirit is trying to manifest or is in the area basically spirit is made up of energy just like we are but it's a different type of energy and a different type of vibrational pattern that the the spirit manipulates in in their world so they're basically sucking up the heat and and sucking in energy leaving leaving our atmosphere codes coats buts or micro climates micro climates okay. You guys are awesome You guys can catch us. The Bob after shows GONNA be out front of her thirty seconds. We'll use our phone with us or I do. I have a a couple more so these are some specific accounts that people have posted about so we have someone who wrote in The Observer. You're who wrote growing up. I remember hearing weird and creepy stories all the time of people that attended the school and from others you said it simply heard some stories these stories but often include people claiming to see a ghostly figure of a woman in why Romania toss out there that I'm very probably raped. Fit The word ghostly into your notes for the show point that out so I'm sorry thank you and it's actually a quote from somebody else that pretty amazing. yeah pets favorite. He likes the women in white so in a lot of our ghost stories. There's a woman in White. I don't know why they're I think she's the same woman she just goes around and here's what we're GonNa do an episode on just shows up there right before hassle. It's possible that yeah so okay so the woman ruins the halls they would catch a quick catch a quick glimpse of the woman but she would suddenly disappear before they could get a good look at her students would be walking through the halls alone and suddenly feel chills. There's there's a cold spots. They would feel a haunting presence behind them and if they turn to look there would be no one there so the students themselves also report feeling alling ghostly presence at the school. Have you ever been A. I've heard that I was Mike I what was I was a kid implant so yeah when I was a kid. I used to tell people that I wanted to be a saint see Patrick so kids. Say The darndest things right so yeah I also speak the truth often sure kids. They're also the most spiritually sensitive everybody right. They are sure all right one more this one this it was my favorite so becky vickers of Beck's ghost hunting wrote about her experience at channing in November of two thousand sixteen so not that long ago she was visiting visiting Elgin and channing was one of the places she investigated she was with a local friend of hers and ghostly good friend Tony Civil L. Skiers belsky sized Tamer. He's not such a good friend that we can't remember Huskies L. Scam and he was he was going to be here tonight. He does tours of bluffs of city cemetery and DOT com. He's he's always aid US yours. In the city to Chicago hunting tours grace he was on our eastland disaster episode from July. Check that out okay so he she writes that they kept thinking they could hear children even though it was late on a Monday night so no kids around her equipment malfunctioning when you were talking about that when they when they were by the last remaining tombstone that I mentioned earlier and they had a lot of communication on commitment including their flashlights and one less thing of course they recorded one of the clearest. MVP's that I have ever heard of a child saying I want to go. I listened to it over and over again. It was terrifying. You could clearly talk. They're looking. Maybe he was a kid. That wanted to go to great America or something. You know. They just want to go home. I WANNA go. I WanNa go home I didn't I didn't hear the part that wasn't paying attention. Often aim part here like the skeptic to come in. You don't hear the whole story doesn't even when we talk about what did you say I can't. We know that is pretty spooky. What do you guys think you guys yeah. What would you say that that place was really haunted by applause. Please the thought that some skeptics believers over all right. What about you non believers? I want I want to hear it loud obviously ten times as many skeptics believers. I just want to say I did an awesome job with that right so that's all we have for. We got well. I just want to mention too so typically. After reposted episode we posted a poll on our facebook. Tuck page so we always want to hear what our listeners think of our story inside they land at night usually when she usually wearing those skeptics optics that I heard please follow us on facebook and just both like nick does right here nick. Can you wave to the people he's he's like the only person that votes on my side so I need some vote. Skeptic on WanNa massacre legitimately voted skeptic on that which one Easter Island episode sorry might Easter Island. I'm sorry tired but now the next episode of Easter Eastern Disaster when I legitimately voted okay all right right so I think we're going to turn it over to Bob after dark. They have another story that is sorry guys familiar with mobile APP joking the Mobile Alabama dot com or did you bring notes no oh I bought a book all right but of little faith. I have some notes every week on afterguard because we're a weekly show. I usually give anthony some level of crap because he doesn't come prepared sometimes. Sola well up here we we we base our show. We have weekly news stories that we talk about once a week and I'm like Anthony come with three new stories comes nothing sometimes Alexa who sometimes none but every every time he comes with it he gives me the view of fake so we're actually talking about the Elgin Mental Health Center right here. I asked who's WHO's of course has heard of this if you've been by pretty close to here. Isn't it ever hear Safari. Don't pick up. My favorite part about that is always there's the don't pick up. Hitchhikers signs sped bet signed by any prison or any mental institution. I grew up right down the street from the State Penitentiary and we had explains a lot. appreciate that fun fact about the health center before we continue for skeptics or believers the place does have a pretty wax whacked background in history so it's actually voted on a lot of websites is one of the most haunted hospitals in America right here on the way to John. You won't be clapping once you find out why it's one of the most thoughts but let me give you a little background so the mental health the operated in the state right here in Elgin. It's pert birth purpose changed over the years from treating the mentally ill the criminally criminally insane tuberculosis to even acting as a side project for the va so they would take veterans that were suffering from PTSD and other forms of mental illness from combat. They would take them for free if the VA was busy to help well what about like hosted picked on the whole time during a show. I mean they helped me. You think that you can take She can take one of my cards so you can give us a call. We'll we'll listen you. They put that in my bag okay now this decree part about the mental institution itself or the Mental Health Center isn't the actual center itself. It's what was their sold. The mental the facility you can go and see now is still a regular operating eating facility but once upon a time ago there was infirmaries scattered all around the main building that have now since one thousand nine hundred ninety one nine nine in one thousand nine hundred eighty one thousand nine hundred ninety two have been demolished the creepiest part though is the cemetery because every go story needs needs a good old metairie you got a little bit of Info on the cemetery itself plus you. It's horrible. No uh-huh. Maybe you know to kind of talk about the cemetery. China goes hand in hand with the with the institution as wild institution institution was built in eighteen seventy and like Bob.

And a guy will come out, and we'll do an examination your basement. You may not be getting any watering your basement just the fact that you're it's damp, and humid, even in the summer months, and you've got an open some pit, those are all things that are not things you should be living with it's not healthy for you is causing damages and then things and it's depreciating the value house. So we can give you free ideas on several suggestions on how to resolve. We can help you with all those problems. It's not a way to live housing. Tell you something when I'm out with buyers, and we're going into a house and we smell stinky basement or a musty basement. That's a huge huge turn off. I'll tell I'll tell you. What what are you go to her house to smell abasement? See if it smells like you've got quite a sniffer because you've got. You're like a freaking. They're slowing her headphones. So Donald could tell you exactly where the origin of is coming from and what country it originated from. But but but hey, I think this is a job for ROY your nose to identify the. Thing. If you walked in there today, you wouldn't smell a thing or Donna would. She she's like, a forensic. Yeah. Keep my off season colds on down there. And there there's no moulder must. But in the summer old new furnace goes off. Oh boy. So it's a furnace question. Not a some pump question. Now, it's a humidity problem. And that's when humidity problems become most apparent when it's hot out because your basements, cool and the difference in the humidity level manifest itself. And and things and and like I say so that is causing you a problem in the summer. But it's a again, the fact that you have an open some pit that's as a hazard for the pump as well as your pets and people in the basement 'cause you have hardwood floors in your house. I do and that's not good. And I'm not being funny. That's not good for hardwood floors because it's any moisture to the floors, the excess humidity and things so I think yeah. But don't you think by now the problem would have shown showed up because I've been in sixteen years and that floor was not replaced when they redid the house, they they literally. But maybe. Your senses are so warped that you don't realize how your floors. You know, there's something to call that runs on it. Fix everything with a rock. That's a good cheap, easy fix. I'll tell you what all those oriental rug places that go out of business. A sheet loves this lady here 'cause she runs around and start picking up discount. Roughly. If I had a nickel for somebody says is never been a problem. It's been that way for sixteen years. And all of a sudden, they have a problem. There's something called the straw that a camel bash says accumulative effect, so you may never had a problem in all of a sudden you that's what happens hang on. All right.
