Climate change adds pressures to degraded Everglades
"The florida everglades support a rich population of waiting. Burbs white ibis wood storks and spoon bills mark cook of the south florida. Water management district says the birds depend on the everglades alternating. Sawgrass ridges lose. You have these ridges and these grooves. Running sodas parallel to one another during the wet season water covers much of the marsh and fish spawn across a wide area but during the dry season the water recedes and the fish. Move into this lose for the birds. What that does is actually concentrating. The prey into higher densities so they have easy pickings right when they need to feed their growing chicks but cook warns that climate change could alter the landscape. I make it harder for the birds to forage. Warm dry conditions could make the sawgrass ridges dry out and collapse flattening the marsh. The sloughs would then fill with cattails instead of fish. The everglades are already degraded by urban development and agriculture which have interrupted the flow of water across the landscape so a major goal of restoration is getting that water back into the everglades and cook says climate. Change makes this restoration especially

How Trump And Biden Differ On Energy Policy
"We are now just over a week away from election day although we know millions of people have already voted. But in these final few weeks, we've been focusing on some of the policy differences between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden differences that might not be so easy to discern when they're buried in the middle of campaign rhetoric or debate jobs. Right now, we're going to focus on one revealing moment during last Thursday's presidential debate when the two candidates talked about energy specifically, how should the US get and use power in the future have a transition from their own minister yes? Oh. It is a big statement because I would stop why would you do that because the oil industry pollutes significantly here so let's dig into that a bit more what other two candidates competing visions for us energy policy going forward and what are the implications per workers and the environment to help us sort this out. We've called Dino Grandoni he reports on all this for the Washington Post with us now Dino Grandoni. Thank you so much for talking with us your. Thank you for having me on. So let me just start if we can with that clip that we just played there is a divide and how these to view the future of. US Energy. So when it comes to oil, where does each one stand? Yes. So the two candidates have laid out starkly different visions for what they would like to do with the oil industry and how they would like to transition away from fossil fuels or whether or not. They would want to even do that You saw a Democratic candidate Biden pledge to move away from oil in favor of renewable energy and predicted that that kind of move will generate millions of jobs president trump by contrast says that doing that would be costly and hurt the economy and in particular would hurt the oil producing states where both men are competing for votes. Well. You've recently written that president trump has very recently tried to rebrand himself as an environmentalist which would seem like a difficult sell when his administration has rolled back countless environmental regulations over the past four years and he continues to push for oil coal and gas. So what's his pitch? Yeah, and this is a man who has spent much of his life trying to rebrand himself during various business ventures. So He Over the past year has changed his position and a few different things he has promised to fund restoration of the Great Lakes when in the past White House had proposed cutting money to do that similar story with the everglades in Florida and He is endorsed this idea planting a trillion trees around the world in order to suck carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. President trump is going to have a hard time convincing the public that he is a more environmentally friendly candidate than Joe Biden, release candidate who cares more GONNA do more to solve climate change. His administration has spent the past four years rolling back literally dozens of anti-pollution another environmental rules and that kind of reputations probably baked into the public. At this point president trump has attacked for vice president Joe Biden for what trump a radical climate plant and we do have to say this has been described as by far. The most aggressive climate and energy platform that this country has ever seen from a major party candidate. So could you just just as briefly as you can describe what are some of the key elements? So what Joe Biden wants to do is eliminate US contributions to climate change by the middle of the century and on the way they're doing. So he wants to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector in particular power plants by twenty, thirty five, both of those are very aggressive timelines and like you're saying more. Aggressive than anything any other major party candidate has ever put forward. It's in fact more aggressive in some ways than what Bernie Sanders was saying back in two thousand sixteen. So let me ask you this though how does Biden respond to the argument? That's would cost this have tremendous adverse economic impact especially in states that are necessary to for him to win I, mean, how does he respond to that cost the loss of just thousands upon thousands of jobs? Well, he says that his climate plan is also a jobs. Plan that transitioning away from fossil fuels will create millions of jobs in itself to have to install solar panels, built wind turbines. But then also all all the different sort of retrofits that his plan calls for to homes and businesses to make buildings more energy efficient. He really thinks of this as an economic plan in addition to being a plan to stop climate change or headed off at least. Well, we knew though that president trump in contrast president trump has always kind of focused on that economic impact of. This country is kind of reliance on fossil fuels and back in two thousand sixteen many people may remember he promised to reopen coal mines and to bring back coal mining jobs has that happened no that has not happened and we've seen trump talk less and less about coal in the first two state of the Union addresses. He gave he talked a lot about clean call and saving jobs but he dropped those references in the last two state of the Union addresses and we've seen coal fired power plants continue. To Shudder and call nine continue to close down during his presidency not because of any government policy. Really. But experts say it's because of economic pressure Kohl's just gotten to expensive relative to natural gas and renewable 's and what about oil I. The idea that a move away from fossil fuels from reliance on fossil fuels is increasingly popular with the public. I mean, the polls make that clear but apart from that are the economics driving oil to face a similar fate, a colleague of yours reported last month, for example. That British Petroleum VP has come out publicly and said it is shrinking it's oil and gas business and investing in wind and solar. So are sort of economic imperatives or whatever public policy imperatives regardless of what president trump sort of perspective on this are they driving in that direction anyway. So during the pandemic at least in the short term, the oil industry has been hit particularly hard as people driving fly less. There's a lot less demand for oil and that has caused a lot of oil companies to have to. Lay off people and even have to declare bankruptcy in this country that said, there are some experts who do think that oil is going to go the way of coal right now, electric vehicles. There aren't that many being used relative to the entire auto market in the United States, but there's this expectation that adoption of electric vehicles is going to pick up and that's going to really eat into the petroleum business because most of the petroleum in this country is used towards transportation field towards the gas tank in your car. That is Dino Grandoni. He is an energy and environmental policy report with the Washington. Post Dina Grandoni thank you so much for talking to us. Thank you for having me

The league says it's working with local health officials and the Professional Hockey Players Association to develop protocols for the safe return of
Yes, the fattest bear wins
"So before we really get into it with Ray. Let's set some road rules. First of all, we're sticking to American black bears and what you need to know is that not all black bears hibernate it's all about how much food is around and that changes based on where you live your life. Black bears are kind of what we're going to be referring to as habitat generalists and they're found all over North America. So the bears in Florida and the everglades don't usually hibernate second there is this scientific debate over whether or not bears truly hibernate and so like a useful definition of hibernation basically is like a physiological state of. A significantly decreased metabolism basically food has dried up. So some animals entered this low energy mode. How low energy these bears are is up for discussion, but Ray is firmly on team bears do hibernate. So if you ask me and I'm willing to take on this debate, I really am officially on the record I would argue that they are true hibernate is because their metabolism changes from such a significant level in order to avoid food scarcity, we're going with ray on this one moving on if you're a black bear who hibernates and you are about to go literally months without food, there's one thing you gotta do to get ready. It's so easy. You're eating everything you can find everything you gotta get sick with. By any means necessary it's called optimal foraging theory and it sounds a little complicated, but it's so easy to understand. Also people do it to an optimal foraging theory suggests that bears job is to eat as many calories as possible while expending as little energy as again. So, that's why we see bears in some places eating you know tens of thousands of calories, berries you know every day. Or. A bear lives in a place where there's you know rivers and streams and freshwater fish in there. They're eating tons and tons of fish like whatever is around them. They're going to gorge on that because they don't have to travel far and expand a lot of energy to get more. Right. Right. Okay. So I'm a bear I have just worked hard to chubb up as fast as I can with the least amount of energy and I found the place that I'm going to hibernate. What are those places look like? Because I thought they were all like deep caves, but that's not necessarily true. Right well, I like one of my personal desires is to find a bear denning in a cave. I want that more than anything because you grow up with that right as a kid grew up with these stories about there's a bear in the cave and and of course, they do I mean, you know if bear comes upon it, empty cave is one hundred percent going to make its winter done there But you know how many games are in you know a single forest like usually not. Many. So outside of the Cave, example bears use a lot of different places to create a hibernation den. So hollowed out logs or good ones. If there's you know a tree that has fallen down and is easy to kind of dig into a barrel, make space for itself in you know in a log in a tree trunk you know sometimes just next to a whole bunch of bushes and. Another thing I love about is, is that some of them you know in particular maybe male bears. Will sometimes just sit down and then. There Dan. The cool thing about being a bear as their top predators, right they have no natural enemies in their systems they can feel safe all the time You know humans cause huge problems to bears, but they haven't evolved necessarily to understand that. So they feel like they are big bat and safe all the time and you know can just lay down wherever they want the. Okay. So I know that there are all of these massive changes that happen in the bear body during hibernation. Tell me about some of the coolest ones in your mind. Yeah. So I you know maybe this is because I have a preschooler and so we are like just about a year or so past like potty trainings might be on my mind a lot. But I think one of the coolest things is that bears will recycle their own waste during hyper nation. So they they don't you know like urinate or defecate at all during this time period just recycled in their bodies but but that allows them to essentially like not lose hydration or not lose a certain amount of nutrients during our nation, which is is it's just tremendous. It's really amazing. It's just like a beautiful officiant logical system you know Yeah it's. I could just keep going but it's it's really cool. Yeah. Yeah. So okay. Probably one of the most ridiculously cool things about their physiology in this state is that although bears lose a lot of body weight during hibernation, they don't actually lose a ton of like muscled massar or bone strength like way less than humans would if we didn't move for three months, right that I mean that's wild ray well, it's because they get so fat. I mean. So you know what is so I think what is what is interesting as a human being especially in like American society is that we associate fat with something bad like if people get too fat, you know we might encounter a lot of health problems. but for Bayer is being fat makes you actually more ecologically fit and sometimes they're putting on, you know hundreds and hundreds of pounds just to prepare for hibernation, and so if they do that, then of course, they're not losing muscle mass when they hibernate, they are not losing losing bone density. They're just burning that fat recycling their waste like doing this slow burn all winter and then emerging. As. Ever. Yeah. This brings me to one of the wildest bear things that is blowing. My bare mind. Is that some Mama Bear's give birth during hibernation? Yes. So all Mama Bear's giver during hibernation unless they live in a place where they don't hibernate. Yeah. So you know in ecology community, we essentially do this thing where we give, we assign a birth date to. Every animal that we encounter and all black bears have January birthday all of them. So for the most part, you can assume that any black bear you've ever seen ever in your life and never will was born in January and in most parts of North America. That's a time of hibernation you know from the from the few studies where we've been able to witness. A hybrid female VR giving birth is few. We've been able to see her show some obvious signs of labor, right? So she's like wake she's not loving it, but she's giving birth. To. A couple of very, very, very small cubs so they grow. From one pound to you know like ten pounds or so and all in the den while the mother is doing her best to get some rest. But you know she's got like litter full. Of does with her so it's not you know those winters as she gives birth or not the most restful
Miami-Dade, Broward prepare more than 50 shelters ahead of Hurricane Isaias
"Stronger. stronger. Hurricane Hurricane Esa Esa ius ius heads heads toward toward Florida Florida Hurricane Hurricane It is intensified a little more maximum winds up to 85 miles per hour.

Expensive Miami private schools got millions in PPP loans. So did charter schools
"Maybe there's something that came out in the Herald and just really rankles me. Some of the most expensive private schools. In South Florida. Got loads in those PPP loans loads charter schools, too. Charter schools to Catholic schools. Two of my girls is one of them. This one. Let's see. He's talking about the ransom Everglades, which has a $40 million endowment, according to the tuition there. 7 $41,050 a year. My daughters went to Carrollton right next to poor and they follow them in lockstep General for tuition. Now they took A whole lot of money in these PPP loans. According to the Herald between two and $5 million. Now let me ask you this question What we had to keep our staff and our teachers and our cultures will let me ask you this. Did you give money back to the parents to pay for tuition last year? Cause I pay tuition in my school. I think any money back my girls didn't go to the school for the last half of the year. You pay tuition toe have them in the classroom. They're not learning computer and the computer stuff was Every once in a while, they'd have a class. I mean, it was kind of ridiculous. They didn't get to take the you know, they're I'd be in after back Laura Court o'clock test at the end of the year. Now, none of that either. Which would have helped them to avoid certain classes in college. No, but they're not gonna give money back. So wait a minute. You got all the tuition money. You didn't any more money to keep your staff and your teachers and your coaches. What are you talking about? I mean, this is outrageous, and they're not giving the money back. It's why oversight is important when you have these kinds of trillion dollar programs. ST Thomas, a quietness. Got a bunch of money. According to the Herald, the Archdiocese of Miami itself received between one or $2 million funds. Why one of the Archduke is most prestigious schools in Tom's. The quietest in Fort Lauderdale received the people own birth between two and $5 million. I mean, you know, there are actually people who needed this money, give the money back to the parents who pay the tuition if that's the case. Do they think they
"everglades" Discussed on Strange Brew Podcast!
"Why wouldn't you have the premium shit? But that is really weird that like that like weird with those like bunkers. Obviously civil war and dudes were hi there so like maybe they found some they. There shouldn't or some fucked them up maybe. What else you got bro Oh. I gotTa let me see. I think the last thing we got who got actually. Is Yeah, we talked about this shit. This is interesting. The nearby Caribbean Sea the Gulf of Mexico and the coast of Florida has a history of swashbuckling, and it seems the. Seem natural. It should be a pirate story associated with the everglades ago story in no less whether sanctioned privateers or street criminals privacy was an region, started in sixteen, obviously like pirates in the sixteenth century with Spanish pirates, and the obviously went to about the nineteenth century, but pirates only lasts about one hundred years before they got fucked up. We did a strange pirates episode. But they didn't last long, but there is a weird story. That was detail. The nine hundred, thousand nine by actually the Chicago Tribune, which is Weird Chicago, did it, and it was that in the sixteen hundreds of pirate ship captured by a merchant ship off the coast of Florida they. Obviously captured this merchant ship. They gave the pirates chase and gave them enough trouble that the pirate made every crew member. Walk the play. Retaining. Wall retaining the captain's wife to make make her watch. That's Fox that they made her made. The captain's wife watches everyone the plank. She cursed the pirates, and according to Legend Day doomed to roam the everglades in this ship, and obviously elect purgatory for the rest of your life. Never encountered a Gauche about there, but. It's. Not a bad movie go ship. You never seen it. It's actually it's a pretty good horrible trip me Oh when I was a kid and just the whole aspect of that kind of creepy shutting. Everybody dies in the ship, and then they. Try to rebuild it or they sail it again and there's always fucked up goes on it and it's. It's a thirteen ghosts kind of fucked movie Gotcha. Yeah, so I. Don't know if you guys got to have the next year I. Don't know if you guys have these ever heard of love bugs. talk about them and I'll see. You Pie fucking down Bro. It's these two little black bugs that their asses attached together, and they just fire around, and they do nothing a kind of sounds. I'm sure we have some stupid like that. So anyways, we got these twice a year. Bro, and it's fucking horrible. Because all they do they like when they in your car like the stain your car and you'll see like literally. The front of trucks like just write black because we have some weird. We have those two and we have them in hot weather and Shit, we call it. We call them stink bugs down here because they stink and Shit I remember one time, grandma likely do smoke. Yeah, my grandma lives in a trailer. Old folks trailers share leg with the old folks at home kind of thing I remember one summer. When I was a kid, it was fucking covered and these bugs. And it was. Almost send you. Send you some videos. Because the videos of people's houses just covered in these fuck, fuck scheduling. And what do you do bug spray them nothing there's there's supposedly like these remedies, but I've tried them do. It doesn't work. So there was a conspiracy about these bugs right so. Anybody who's in Florida's obviously familiar with the love bugs. They're annoying little bugs that fly around literally doing nothing. And they just die while they just they live, and they just die, and so there's a rumor surrounding where they came from and according to the rumors that the love bugs were genetically engineered by scientists at the University of Florida. For the purpose that they would meet with male mosquitoes and sterilize them. Yeah, they can no longer produce, but that's obviously just a rumor. Dude. That's fucking. Yeah, that's a weird. Say Right so. Yeah so. Here I'll talk. All Ed Gut Niagara Edgar I wanted to let me throw in the end with our. Let me throw in the Miami fucking. I can. Down for anything. I. Don't know if you've heard about this, so I remember. When this came out on the news in May, twenty on May Twenty, six twenty twelve right and this gets, it gets fucked up Rudy Eugene attacked. A Miami Miami resident has nameless Ronald. POPO, right he's. He was a homeless man, and did this happen literally under this causeway, so it was like literally on the highway there were underneath it and there's a video of it. It, but you can't really see what's happening. You just see the COP. Go Up to them. It's like you can just see their elected. They were both naked. And you see the walk up. Take a step beyond. Take a step back. Dude, and he liked shot the guy or whatever so this guy? There is an eighteen minute film encounter right because there was like this security camera looking down. Eugene accused of stealing his Bible. Unconscious removed his pants embiid off most oppose face above the beard, including his left eye, leaving him blind in both eyes. As a result, the incidents shocking nature of sequent worldwide media covered. Eugene came to be dubbed the Miami's Zombie. And the Causeway Cannibal literally was on the highway just underneath and it was. Just covered by the barrier wall size guy. Well this is around the same time. Bath salts came out so this. Is a thousand percent that he was on basalt because we've had cases and Canada. But also there's that fucking do off camera where he was from, but the guy that I think he was like a juggle some douchebag that listen to ICP. fucking bath salts any like fucking eight. The guy's fucking head on the back of the bus as a huge store. Yeah, he like fucking. Canada yeah, I think it was Canada, but it might be the states. I might be totally wrong if I am whatever fucking. fucking art. They're always wrong, and so he fucking I know the story I. Don't know where anything is fucking from, but he's cut the guy's fucking head and they started eating his fucking and people were like in the bus watching and they'd like. Pull over, and obviously all fucked up, but the kid was on basalt, and while you look for that. Let me finish reading this. Look that shit up. I wanted to what the hell is, so the attack ended when Yuji was fatally shot by mammy PD officer so. Obviously, this guy was missing Popol missing and his family thought he was dead, and so this is where it gets funny I. Don't know about saw. I don't I don't know how fucked. It was it was Canada Canada. Toba traveling the Trans Canada highway, yeah, killing of Tim Kurd Tim McLean occurred on the evening of July thirtieth two thousand eight, yeah, twenty two year old man was stabbed and beheaded and cannibalized while writing and Greyhound Canadian by bus damn well. This is the Florida Bro saved up for the. Pogo. So. What got me here was? The obviously. They speculated that it was bath salts, but here's the thing they did. Toxicology reports on him, and they're only what identify marijuana in his system so. I read the description, maybe a schizophrenic. That's the thing I read the description and supposedly the guy had approached the homeless guy like all Super Nice right and they started talking and he was like Oh. You know I can't score and then talking about scoring at the beat, and then out of nowhere, he's like we're all GonNa die, and then He. Punched them, just took his clothes off and start eating his fucking fake. Drugs. Or that's. Up Do you have to? Do because that's the thing, so I thought about I was talking to buddy of mine when I was researching this and I was like. May there's been more fucked up things. People have done right then more messed up things people have done, but how messed up. Do you have to be just like for me to go up to your right now and just say hey, Bro, and the knock you on consciously your face. I. And that's what I'm sure I think like. Maybe he's coming down. And people do horrendous shit if he had mental health issues and you know people do drugs like Mathur, bath salts and stuff like that and making them hallucinate kind of when they can't get off of it and shit when they're like desperate for things like their whole endorphins are fucked up like that. One Guy got abducted by the bigfoot. Tripping on. Like. Fuck that Shit, but it's even like when I used to work at. fucking as a chef, I worked downtown at a pub in the city. I live in and there. Is this fucking dude?.
"everglades" Discussed on Strange Brew Podcast!
"Think fucking. What's his name and it's not like grizzly. Fuck was that there's. One! We were Leonardo Dicaprio where you get. Wherever, and that was. She was good, Dow. And that I would actually watch that movie I've only seen it once. Definitely. Corinthian will supposedly the bear had raped him during that. I heard about. Shit There's like there is on. The Edge. I think it's called the edge. If you never seen and ninety s movies, it's fucking sick. Anthony. Hopkins and I think why I think like a out Baldwin, and they're like the woods, and then a bears essentially hunting them, and it's like really fucked up to keep getting away from this bear, and it's like really intense like it's actually a fucked up. The lake placid is the one that's actually a good movie gator. I actually. Placid out here in Florida really I actually. I liked it. That was a fucking good movie. That's. Abo- gators to we have so another fun fact about. Florida were being infested by Burmese pythons again heard about that people releasing their exotic animals into the wild and their. Prime spot for them to just reproduce and the government do there's people. Bank right now, going out to the everywhere. AIDS in hunting for snake out do that Shit. They go on and they catch a bunch of snakes. They after pays them. There's people making money, yeah! Just just catch toys before like roundtable gentlemanlike. They're done now. Those great podcast and the same people that do last podcast and left Shit I listened to it because I used to listen to what I was stoned or drinking or saying, because they would just tell, tell fucked up new stories, and that's kind of what they do with on Toronto. There's a bunch of them. There are all kinds of Comedians, and they used to tell stories all the time from Florida or they'd be like. Can you guess where this is from the off? Florida and they always made fun of Ford. Akao fucked up. It is so they. So they pay you per hour to prow the wetlands, right and Florida, and you make bonuses so pythons up to four feet, long got fifty bucks, and then twenty five dollars for every foot over four dollars. You're you're getting paid eight twenty five an hour, but then you've got bonuses for every python fourteen. Times eight. Do they have. Nothing. Eight twenty five a shit, but let's say you get. Let's say you get four four foot pythons. That's already two hundred bucks and a day. It would like if you were smart enough. It's kind of way. It's weird way of saying it, but like you know hunting formula is of almost like as when you're serving like. You want that tip right? You got a trial. So then you go out there I wanNA find the snake selenium. Actually. Sign me. The fuck will get in the water with. I'm not scared of snakes. Especially, if it's, but it's of scary long as they're not venomous I would take. I've watched a lot jackass. I would take a bite from a snake in if I had to as long as with animus. But for like. Two Bucks. Not Take a bite of it. Might! Take A. Bite this piece of shit now. Like that if I take a bite, if I knew it wasn't them then Ms and if I was getting like maybe two hundred bucks just for that alone. So, apparently a hurts. It hurts, and you can get infection from fuck that we we let's talk about how it's a prime spot for dumping bodies, which makes a lot of sense. Some people look at the everglades is a beautiful area packed with lush wildlife and exotic beauty, other seat as a great dumping spot for dead bodies. If you've ever lucky enough to visit, the everglades keep an eye out for decomposing bodies. They have a habit of getting tangling the weeds and the muck authorities and locals have stumbled across numerous bodies that were dumped in a gruesome manner in the everglades buys that been shot stabbed, mutilated burnt to death or otherwise tortured have all been found floating in the rivers. And it's fuck. Dude and the cases are Torius are notoriously difficult to solve, and since nineteen sixty five, there have been over one hundred and seventy five unsolved homicide murders, and the everglades and the bodies somebody's. That's the bodies we know of. There's bodies that we don't know of. They're still fucking there right? Yeah, because when the? Animal eats one they they don't. They don't decompose the bones right. No, no an animal tear it apart, but like they're still be flesh. Of like still there unless it's some fucked up creature like a crazy guebuza pack of coyotes I could see that. Usually. They take what they need. And then they fuck off right. Yeah, yeah, and like the thing that so I wanNA reconsider. We talked about earlier about. Either having to fight a bear. Alligator because alligators. What they do is bill. Take you and then they'll start rolling. They call it the death roll and take you underwater and they'll just keep rolling Sowa. Drowns. You get a hold of somebody's limb in the rip it all because they're just rolling and trying to drown them essentially so I don't know I think I. Think I'd have to go with the bear down. Defend Myself Against Alligator I. Bear Could Luli like would that claw and the pound of pressure towards his arm and his muscles? He could tear apart your arm in fucking.

Today we'll be talking about a subject that's near, and dear to my heart, and it's GonNa be weird for two stories. Cookie whatever you want to consider them. Because there's you know when I. When you look, there's a lot of fucked up. There's a law. And not just Florida, but everywhere. Paranormal Shit Yeah when I was looking up this stuff, a lot of the stuff I hadn't heard about, but then there was obviously hunt like huntings of certain places and I think that's everywhere. Haunted. Fire station or something like that it and I'm not. Have you ever been to haunted place? Have you ever? Fuck around I'm trying to think we've definitely like fucked around like we've broken into like old factories and shit like that. We. Were kids just fucking around? And I've already told the story of my podcast where you'd like. Pull that we and the first thing we broken. This factory found a big fire extinguisher. Who want to see what works we let it off. I've never seen one of those things go till then, and it covered the entire property with that white soot, and then you hear people yelling from across like the neighborhood, because factory was like across residential housing and years. What the fuck and there's like shit just like. But like I've never had like we. Probably brought shit into our lives from using the OUIJA board. That was more of haunting aspects. I've always wanted to take. I've ghost hunting equipment like a fucking recorders and a bunch. Can we shit that? Maybe we'll catch ghost and I've always wanted to go into like a legit place and use this equipment even a Ouija board. I don't give a fuck. Yeah. I've never I've never been anywhere, but when I I'm GonNa be going to the everglades soon, and there's actually a spot in the everglades that. They used. There were going to use it to test one when NASA was using liquid base fuel. Literally fired off. In the middle of the everglades I, think I forgot what year it was, but there's this factory out there. Where they were testing these rock attack, because after that the company that owned facility, they were supposed to get the contract with NASA. The NASA changed their feel type, so they weren't going to be using liquid base fuel. And they lost the contract, so they had to shut the factory down, but the factory is still there and there are still a rocket in one of the hanger. Actually go there. Rockets like this really abandoned place in the middle creepy nowhere one like we'll get to it. We'll get into all these weird things that happened or have happened in the everglades. But like like we're talking about like last time and stuff like we were talking about like residual energy, and all that stuff like you don't really know what energy this lies there. What maybe experiments they did back in the WHO fucking knows they could have taken a bunch of mentally handicapped people out there and fuck and shot them, or who knows right like you, don't she? Back in the day and it's like. Get to it for sure, but there's a lot of places to hide things and the everglades. Yes so I'm going to start off some phone. Apart. The I like to call it.

"Hello everyone and welcome to frames. My name is Scott Olsen and I am talking today with Beowulf Sheehan. Beowulf is one of the most sought after most successful and I believe most important portrait photographers in New York. These days he has worked in more than fifty countries lectured at New York University and Yale among other places and if you go to his website you will see portrait of people like Oprah Winfrey Twenty Morrison Patti Smith Margaret Atwood Patrick Stewart in Kellyn Paul Simon and dozens and dozens of others. It is a body of work of which I am personally Quite envious good morning. Bill could he's got great to hear Your Voice. I do have a quick thought for you. I've not traveled to fifty countries the photograph I photographed in better than ten by way of commissions however I have photographed people from at least fifty countries and hopefully been able to travel to their worlds in cultures through those experiences. Okay I saw that on your resume and I was impressed and I'm still impressed. So tell me how things are in New York this morning. New York is a beautiful place this morning. The air is cool and crisp outside. I did have a short walk this morning. I am very fortunate that out my window. I have a cemetery so I get to see less trees and I have a great deal of quiet. What sounds I hear. Every morning in this new time of ours is usually One of two things that I hear all either your birdsong or I will hear the sound of a passing ambulance and of course happy to hear the former not to hear the ladder. That is the time in which we live summer mornings in New York. City yes Tell me about portrait photography but let let let's begin where people how in the world could you get into photography? How did you get into the kind of portraiture that you do specifically I into photography being a shy boy and wanting to make friends and prior to the thought of making friends? I wanted to be reacquainted with my father. My parents divorced when I was in elementary school. My father was out in my life for a few years and when he came back the beginning of my high school years he had a Konica thirty five millimeter camera. A Long Lens to go with it and when I arrived at high school which was a high school outside of my neighborhood I went to magnet high school for foreign languages. I was busted very early in the morning to get there. I was in the ethic minority in head a world of new friends to make and when I got to school my classmates were speaking about two things with which I was unfamiliar of the Miami Dolphins. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and girls and I knew very little about both but I had been working in the summers and not really spend that money on anything beyond books and comic book so I had enough money saved to become the youngest person in the history of the Miami Dolphins the buy season tickets to the Miami Dolphins. That's impressive I go So what I had done was than I began to use my father's camera and I would take a tripod that camera that long lens invite a new acquaintance from high school to eat game. And I believe my mother had driven been to us down To attend these games and no one ever stopped me. The guards were very kind. They recognize me after a few games. I always went through the same gate that sort of thing and was able to watch Dan Marino or the ball around and make pictures and then make Prince of those pictures and share them with classmates over time developing friendships and of course Getting to know my father again. That's a wonderful beginning there. Is I know an extraordinary event. Though in your early connection to reading and that's possible yes but but I'll let you lead that so when you're asking the extraordinary connection is well. Yeah you you are probably the only you are the only person I know who's ever been bitten by an alligator. Oh this is true this this. I don't know all the people in your life of course who you know but but I'm the only person I know who's been bitten by an alligator and that happened to me in the summer of nineteen seventy six in June of that year. I was of course on summer break from school quite small and my brother and I were playing in the backyard of the home of a friend of my mother in southwest Fort Lauderdale where there are canals and those canals in some cases feed than Their Way West to the Florida everglades and of course. That's where alligators hang out. And some of them sometimes get lost. My brother-in-law had been wrestling. This lady's backyard was time to come into the House for lunch. I had asked the Lady of the House. If we could use your host wash our feet persons they were full of dirt from the grass and the young lady had said no actually better just a spicer feed off the dock and then it'll be quicker and I went I. I remember sitting at the dock. Enjoying splash on my feet and looking at my brother and my brother's twenty months younger than me made his eyes get bigger and he looks down on my foot. I looked at my foot and I saw the alligator close. Its mouth around my right foot and I went to some degree of shock. The allegation let go. He caught the outside artery of my ankle and bloodshot out. Allah a bad money iphone sketch. And my my brother then began to grab my body to try to pull my body up and my mother and my mother's friend of course had come out of the house at this time and they were lifting me from the document onto the grass. The allegation had gone back under the dock. And I don't know how much more time passed or how much blood I lost but I then at some point found in the emergency room of a hospital where my brother was born. Only a few blocks away and doctors worked in saved my foot. Save my leg. There was concern for infection loss and I was very lucky to have for the balance of the summer. Have Gone to the hospital every day to get my foot. Epsom salts to save it and that meant of course not being able to play games at not being able to enjoy summer camp not being able to do sports do much of anything involved mobility and that deepened my reading and then with it of course my drawing and my reading and drawing through my childhood in and beyond began with comic books and then onto more challenging books More INTERESTING BOOKS. Maybe more interesting stuff. The right word say because books are wonderful. And they're very very interesting. Otherwise we wouldn't have these films adaptations of stories that now the masses is seen film but the the books of course comic books would come out once a month and it was great to go to seven eleven after school and pick up those books but I would devour them so quickly and then I really wasn't in the mood to wait another month for the next book to come out so I would just draw stories myself. The drawing worked its way over time of course into photography. But that's a longer compensation which I'm happy to have
Coral Princess docks in Port Miami after being denied by Port Everglades

"everglades" Discussed on Parklandia
"So great and helping US learn more about wildlife and ecology and. She's actually really more of a mentor for US And helping US understand the needs of our ecosystem then a researcher. Hi guys thanks for having me back on I'm so excited to talk about the ecosystem services in everglades national park today. Yeah it's crazy being everglades national park but flying over it in the past you look out the window and realize that after you pass over that crazy jigsaw urban development there's just this vast tropical wilderness with no sign of humans at all as far as the ECHINACEA until you get to the Ocean. Pretty much right yeah. The everglades is really interesting because it's the only bio Mike it in the world. It's a subtropical wetland and it's basically just a humongous grassy river about sixty five miles wide. That takes its time getting to the Florida Bay. On the southern tip of the state the water only moves like two and a half miles per hour. It's really pokey. We were just talking about. How slow the water moves earlier in the episode? Why is that Well if you remember from being there. It's really flat there. There's not a ton of gradient so the water is moving really slowly because it's not like tumbling down a mountain or anything Also there's a lot of plants to maneuver around so There's a lot to sort of give a little drag. Yeah so when we were in Orlando. We actually saw a sign that said headwaters to the everglades. But that's like way north of everglades. Do they do the everglades actually reach that far? Well from an ecological perspective yes the everglades National Park encompasses only the southern twenty percent of the entire everglades ecosystem which is formed by water that flows out of a big shallow lake called Lake Okeechobee. the water gets into Lake Okeechobee via the Kissimmee River which has headwaters near Orlando. So it's really actually so the ecosystem everglades which is crazy diverse all these little patches of unusual habitat leg tropical hardwood hammock mangrove forest freshwater prairie pine and Cypress Forest Marine and estuarine habitats in addition to miles and miles of sawgrass marsh. How did these all actually worked together? Well they are all really important because all the pieces in the everglades act together like parts of o'clock to keep the entire ecosystem functioning like it should but yes. The everglades has lots of biodiversity. Which brings us to the concept ecosystem services. It's a kind of fancy way of saying that. Functioning ecosystems actually provide a lot of economic benefit to humans and it would be smart to keep functioning ecosystems intact as much as possible because they do important jobs we can assign economic value so basically by protecting our national parks and national in natural resources. Like ALL THE WAY UP TO ORLANDO. They actually provide services that keep us alive exactly. Ecosystems provide us with things like food Seafood and wild game And what's called regulation services like erosion prevention or water filtration pollination of crops like flood control climate regulation? I mean Amazon is making a lot of the oxygen that we breathe. This is all really really important stuff. The ecosystems provide The everglades provide Florida with tons of ecosystem services. The ecosystem is this giant water filtration system so it provides one third of the drinking water to the state of Florida and most of the irrigation water to the whole state. The Salt Marsh keeps the southern end of the state from just sort of eroding into the ocean and tons of stuff Sort of like. You can't know all the things that your parents did for you to keep you alive kid sister's around you're keeping you alive in ways you don't even realize. I guess that's why they call it. Mother Nature Right. Oh of course but the problem with the idea of ecosystem services is that it reinforces the idea that everything has to have monetary value. And if a police doesn't provide a benefit humans that we can assign a dollar value to. It's not valuable in and of itself so if humans suddenly invent a really cheap effective machine that filters water suddenly the everglades isn't important anymore yes exactly Which isn't true but ecosystem services are really useful way of talking and thinking about how valuable functioning ecosystems are to all of us humans but in some ways it's impossible to describe their value in terms of money or anything else if we don't have functioning ecosystems on earth we might as well be living on the moon or Mars And I don't know about you guys but I really like living here with other plants and animals. I.

"Through sequentially okay if i i need to do this first before i do that because from an engineering perspective and a water movement perspective that's how it best makes sense for no said that he that happened in concert the old like the project is the project but their 68 components like the you would never say like i'm building a house university like i have one hundred twenty projects underway i'm building a house not what that involves is like foundation framing plump okay so is due to any of the projects like as freestanding projects do they wanna being helpful or does it become that these only to come on line i think summer different than other cell on kissimmie river restoration is almost complete and that's the northern that's north at delay in that just ended up itself could be beneficial right okay because that benefits not only the everglades but that benefits the cassini riverbasin are so you could feasibly be like stop there but enjoy some payoff from it yeah but some of them do need to be done in concert and so um what they did because things were moving so slowly they kind of took a subset of the projects that that were thought to be the most beneficial that would basically give you the biggest bang for the buck and package them together went through the planning process which is very extensive with the army corps of engineers prion it like all the environmental impact were yep yeah um and then has to be authorized by congress tony they package she's together in what they call the central everglades planning project so this is the area between um between lake okeechobee an everglades national park that would be the central everglades and so we have of this whole kind of mishmash of canals and levies and all that sort of thing we need to increase conveyance how how so that we can move water south instead of sending it into a canal the shoot it out to to tide.

"History shen what does it caught uh uh his did you bring it up i was gonna ask like it when you take the what does the fixed cost so the cost of fixing it compared to the costs of not fixing it yeah well and that's how hard number two pandak with people like dole people's brains that really work that way though you know what i mean yeah well if you think that if you look at just from a fishing perspective and so that doesn't count tourism or real estate values or loss of life young actually yeah and they're actually have been some documented health conditions from the algal bloom that happened at the coast so uh you know i don't know how you put a number on that but it's definitely significant particularly when he put it may not that 15 to 20 billion dollars is trump change but nine point six billion dollars a year just from sport fishing in florida and green and not all of that's in south florida you but a lot of it's focused there in a nut not all of us and sell florida not all of it is is reliant on this right but but just to put those numbers him in that the annually i mean to put those numbers and perspective yeah it's it we're we're suffering significantly in knots why it's so important for us to move it try to get it done quicker than 30 years so really you know walking the halls of congress and you know trying to make folks aware of how important mrs from a national perspective i mean it's it's a national treasure the everglades as it's actually a unesco world heritage site there's no place else in the world like it it's the world's largest restoration project that's ever been attempted so yes in how many how to get how many projects need to happen so they're sixty eight total in they in but but the only two happening concert while they have to happen in a certain order so for example building a reservoir without a way to get water either to or from the reservoir doesn't really accomplish anything because the reservoirs just gonna fill up and so kind of china think.
