"This week's guest on the show is a woman named deirdre keane. She was just featured on humans of new york and the running community was so excited. We were like a runner on humans of new york and her next big goal is that world marathon challenge any advice for her she signed. She's doing it like she has signed up. she's good. She's doing it next year if she's listening to this any advice for her well for me. It's like anything else before you can make a commitment like that. You have to earn the right to do it than what you can't do it on a buyer room that it's it's gonna come back to bite you so you have to do the work and i knew i could do the work. I been there before in terms of running that many miles consecutively day to day to day to day when i was wanted to fifty miles every single day for almost eighty consecutive days. So what's the big deal running twenty six miles for seven days in a row but the big deal is the fact attorney seven continents and so for me. It was more about not as much the training. 'cause that was a given but it was about the rat race in between and it was about sleep deprivation. It was about nutrition while flying was about recovery at thirty five thousand feet no sitting in a seat for twelve hours you know and then get often go run another marathon so trying to figure that all out it was about the weather. Temperatures in climates that we were in antarctica and it was whatever ten degrees and then back plane six hours later. You're in south. Africa running at eighty five degrees and your body's calling. Yeah not a lot of time to acclimate gave. You gotta figure that all out in advance. i mean i think anyone who serious about it does the training. I mean the running. I don't mean to be little it. It wasn't easy. I'm not saying disease but it was probably the less challenge in part of the overall experience for me was the running. When i was running. I was like thank god. I'm running like dumb.

The Chester A. Poling

"Today. I'm going to do something a little different for this installment of your next dive normally tried to take you to a dive destination where we talk about the trip from a number of different perspectives. The travel the lodging the dive operator. Oh yeah the diving. Now we've been around the world. But today i'm going to focus on one particular dive that is almost in our backyard. It is one of the most iconic dives here in new england and that is the wreck of the chester. Polling off gloucester mass. The chester polling was a coastal tanker. That sank in a brutal storm on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven. The tanker had just left everett massachusetts and was bound for newington new hampshire. That information is pretty consistent in the research but there is other conflicting information about where she had been. And what cargo she delivered for example some documentation said she had previously delivered kerosene to new jersey while others indicated that the heating oil was delivered to everett mass. I would suspect that delivery to everett mass to be more likely always interesting when you Doing research to get this type of inconsistency now the chester polling was bill in nineteen thirty four at mariners harbor new york by united dry docks incorporated it was originally in the plattsburgh sacconi somewhere along the line at also known as the mobile albany before getting renamed as the chester polling at the time of its sinking it was owned by the motor vessel polling brothers and that was number one inc. I wasn't able to find who was actually named after but obviously some member of the family. So that's a little bit of history about the ship now on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven capital captain. Bert charles burgess was in command. The forecast for that day was for thirty five mile an hour winds along with fifteen to twenty foot seas. the chester polling chester. A polling left. Everett are left everett at six thirty. A m well as we all know. Forecast can be wrong. The winds built up to fifty miles per hour and to seize goddess highs. Thirty feet facing the mounting sees captain. Burge's tried to get more stability by adding more ballast but at ten thirty a m a thirty foot waves smashed into the tanker and broke it in half the captain called for abandoning the ship. Six of the seven members of the crew were saved. I believe it was the cook jail. Derosa from providence rhode island who perished the sir. The stern section of the chester polling came to rest off easter point gloucester originally in about seventy five feet of water with the bow section sinking about four miles off of eastern point in about one hundred ninety feet of water subsequent winter. Storms move the stern section to its present location about eight hundred yards off of eastern point about ninety five feet of water. I think the bottom might be a little bit deeper than that. However the stern section of the chester polling is what some folks call hollywood wreck sitting upright and is probably the most popular wreck dive off. Cape ann as that areas known. Now i- i dove the chester polling way back in july two thousand and five. It was my fortieth dive and a double dip on. The polling was part of my advanced open water class. These dyes would constitute my deep and wreck advanced. Open water dives. At that time. I was still diving in a seven. Millimeter wetsuit with the appropriate gloves and hood. I use the standard aluminum. Eighty tank with nighthawks. Thirty two. I can still remember the anxiety that had doing. The first real wreck dive in the northeast but once in the water what an amazing dive the visibility that day was thirty feet and my max step was at eighty five. Even though it was july the water temperature on iraq was fifty degrees. It was incredible to move along the deck and reach the mid mid ship section where. The tanker broken half absolutely mesmerizing but with an aluminum. Eighty you don't get much bottom time and after about fifteen minutes we headed back to the up line and after are appropriate safety. Stop we climb back aboard the boat and got ready to do it again. Total dive time was twenty six minutes the second dive that day was just as spectacular and pretty much the same profile. Let me just say in a wetsuit. It can get pretty chilly. I didn't go back to the chester polling until august. Two thousand nine and that was my last trip there. It was my two hundred and forty ninth dive but this time i did it in a dry suit and hope to get some good video of iraq. I still dove aluminum. Eighty the dive was just as i remembered and just as exciting visibility again was thirty feet. And my max. Depth was eighty two with and the bottom temperature. That day was forty eight degrees still very cold but so much better in a dry suit again however with an aluminum eighty. You just. Don't get much bottom time especially if your task loading like shooting video so my recommendation is that if you are planning to die the polling you might want to consider a little bit bigger tank something like a steal one hundred or going to doubles. I know that i wouldn't consider going back with anything less than a steel one hundred tank. How do you get to the chester polling back. Then we use cape and divers but they closed up several years ago and recently the dive boat cape and diver to was purchased by several guys from boston. An air now operating regularly chart regular charters again became an diverse to is a forty five foot. us coastguard registered dive vessel. It is spacious and right now with limited divers on board you get plenty of room to get ready and dive but you don't get a lot of but you don't get a lot of time because you don't have a lot of time to get ready because the is only a few minutes from the dock so be prepared one thing. Different about northeast wreck diving. Is that as a diver. You need to bring all your gear that includes tanks weights everything. It's not like diving at a resort. Don't get caught short by not being prepared with all your own stuff now. Here's an interesting element. That i discovered during my research. It appears that in nineteen sixties. The chester polling was length lengthened. By maybe twenty six or so feet. That doesn't sound like much. But at the time of her sinking her length with two hundred and eighty two feet so that lengthening was about ten percent of the original ship's length could this have been a contributing factor for the ship splitting in half. I wonder so if you happen to be in the area of cape ban in gloucester massachusetts. You might wanna look up cape and diver to and head out for a double dip on the chester a

It was stressful but freeman brown. Had a job to do. She says we're no match for nature. But this is what we've trained for. This is what the resilience core was built for like. Firefighters put out fires and waste collectors. Keep the city. Clean the job of the new orleans. Resilience core is to help the city be resilient to shocks. Crises and climate change launched by the city and october twenty twenty as a pilot to run for two years. The cores forty workers were mainly people who lost jobs in the hospitality industry during the pandemic. Who are now on full time contracts starting at twelve dollars an hour with a path to an eighteen dollar an hour wage freeman brown joined after losing her work as a corporate massage therapist at an insurance company. The core spent much of the last year working to support the city through kovic nineteen and get people vaccinated hurricane. Ida is the first climate disaster that the core has confronted though the sophisticated system of levees pumps and flood barriers. Built in the wake of katrina protected the city from water damage the storms high winds battered the city killing thirteen people there and toppling thousands of power lines and hundreds of substations. The lights remained off across most of new orleans for a week with at least ten percent of electric customers still without power nine days later.

We'll hey they're broadcasting for free it's ad-supported why the heck not so the first company to try this. Remember the areo.

The Monkey Bridge in Ōtsuki, Yamanashi Prefecture

"Sometimes an item or building jumps out of the story and into reality in japan. For example. there's a bridge with tall tale behind it. About fifty miles from tokyo. In yamanashi prefecture is the city of otsuki. Its history dates all the way back to the jomon period between fourteen thousand three hundred bc. The city was nearly wiped off the map in nineteen forty five two days before the end of world war two following a bombing by the united states but it was able to bounce back after two other towns and four villages combined to form a new rookie in nineteen fifty four. Despite hundreds of years of change and turmoil including near extinction one of the city's lasting treasures is the sorrow hashi bridge also known as the monkey bridge. It's listed as one of the six official places of scenic beauty in japan and those who cross the gorge know that it's a well earned designation although no one knows exactly when the bridge was built an early military document from fourteen seventy nine does mention its existence. It is supported by four pairs of cantilever beams underneath which are embedded directly into the cliff on each side. The beams are also tended with their own peaked roofs to keep the rain and other debris away while the actual center of the bridge is held up by an arch. Of course a bridge doesn't wind up in the cabinet of curiosities simply because it's beautiful. No it's the reason for its nickname that elevates it from a basic way of crossing the river into an architectural marvel according to the legend the monkey bridge earned. Its name in one of two ways. The first comes from a story that dates back to the seventh century. Which told of a couple who desperately needed to cross the gorge with no bridge in place at the time monkeys living in the surrounding forest emerged and used their bodies to form a makeshift bridge. So that the couple could cross safely. A gardener named sheera echo watched all of this happen so he took it upon himself to build a permanent bridge so that others could cross the gorge easily and without any help from the local

"One of the most powerful storms to ever hit the. Us made landfall over the weekend. Hurricane ida directly hit port fouchane louisiana with one hundred and fifty mile an hour winds flooding rain in life threatening storm surges. That were more than seven feet above normal. The storm ripped the roofs off homes businesses and at least one hospital it snapped trees and power lines flooded streets and left more than a million electricity customers in the dark. In fact the entire city of new orleans lost power the winds were so strong they reverse the flow of the mississippi river near new orleans something the us geological survey calls extremely uncommon only four stronger storms in history of ever hit the mainland. Us and as of early this morning hurricane ida has weakened a little but it is still packing hurricane strength as it moves inland tornado. Watches have also been issued for parts of louisiana mississippi alabama and florida. For a lot of people this is all too familiar ida hit on the exact same date as historically devastating hurricane katrina sixteen years ago. I came ashore about forty five miles west of where katrina first struck land but the area was more prepared. This time since katrina hit newer stronger more sophisticated levees were built to hold back storms. Like this and it seems they've been able to hold up this time much better than the ones that failed following katrina more than eighteen. Hundred people died after katrina. This time. it's too early to know what the human toll may be. Hundreds of thousands of people evacuated ahead of hurricane ida but not everyone got out so there are twenty one search and rescue teams from about fifteen different states ready to find survivors as soon as the storm calms down the federal emergency management agency or fema also sending more than two thousand emergency workers hundreds of extra ambulances and millions of meals and leaders of water.

We put closer to five percent down and now we have a job offer about fifty sixty miles away. Certainly moving out of that house. And i'm wondering should be because i've been interested in real estate and property business because this is in a college town. Should i still kinda keep this house. Since he might be upside down. We tried to sell it while the fees included or should. I just try and throw as much money as i can to sell in providence. Profitable it yeah. Well it's not profit. It's just a matter of whether you write a check when you sell. It is all so get with one of our real estate. Lp's at ramsey solutions dot com. And find out what your reality is. This market is so hot. My guess is you're gonna get out of it that's my guess. And here's the thing. If you were living fifty miles away in working to new job you would not call me up and say. Hey dave i wanna buy a house fifty miles away with nothing down leverage it all the way up to what owes much on it as it's worth which means the rent is barely if at all going to cover the payment and so i really want to take on this liability fifty miles away. Nothing down by the way you wouldn't do that. that's effectively. What you got here house has got no equity in it and by the time you rent it for your barely going to cover the payment and by the time it's vacant a time or two and the heat and burps on you. You're gonna have a loss for the year. This thing is a problem. It is not a blessing.

Fantastic need as you said. I couldn't wait to get down here. So happy to be part opening week of what's really sort meeting for them as you said going all the way to may. You know, I've talked a lot about Oakland of the past couple of weeks getting excited to coming. And and one of the top comments fat, probably is, you know, seems like a fun track to play. I try to get involved really difficult for me to sort of figure out the racing there. And you know, maybe it's the class levels or a mix of trainers. Some the the east coast may not be familiar with. And I don't disagree. It's definitely a challenge. But with the field size and the the pick five especially there are some really juicy payouts. And it's not a track where it's a bunch of favorites. So you can get a little creative. I definitely would say you you wanna bankroll to sustain the swings with the full. Field and such but payouts or too good. And one thing, you know, sometimes we joke about it. But no seriousness. If you're thinking about getting involved, and you're used to many other tracks in the country. They are going in the gate at zero minutes at Oaklawn, and they are going off time so adjust accordingly. That's probably one of the biggest tips that could give don't get shut out. But otherwise twinspireScom we have a wagering guide. Some really good information on some trainer Ingles. And I really enjoyed reading the dick stuff about what types of trips usually get the job done there. Forwardly placed no surprise with an all dirt track is definitely ideal. But one thing I really liked what John Doyle and the winter did with his piece he looked at jockeys. And maybe were they excel in their their pace type. So encourage everyone to go to twin spires dot com and check that out and put it into action this weekend starting tomorrow. With the smarty Jones stakes..

And as soon as I got here, it started making this noise, only, it's an intermittent noise. I have to be going between thirty and fifty miles an hour, and I have to be kind of going uphill. And it'll make this noise. Like, there's a bolt going around in a dryer something I've taken it to two different mechanics. Who have both pulled me that? There's nothing wrong with the car. They can't find what it is. The racetrack. Background noise there, actually, I work at a radio station here. No kidding. We will. We don't wanna know which station it is because it's going to compete with ours. I would like to see inside. We have to do the show from a truck. I hate that.

It's much louder than a ping. I changed from a super premium gas to just a regular that make it worse. Yes. Made it worse. Yes. When it does actually make the noise, ping, ping. So what do I do back to these guys? And you tell them it's picking they probably didn't drive it on the same road that you drove it on. And I'm going gonna ask of crucial question. If you're is wrong. We'll cut you off. Let the lose you. Okay. Is it worse? When the engine is warmed up, or if the hill is steeper. Yes. Yeah. No. It's it's pinning. There's no question. Sounds like a bunch of bolts rattling around inside a coffee can yes. While doing this. If you were to back off the gas while you climbing the hill goes away it goes away. It's absolutely ping.

Well, when these guys said that nothing was wrong with the car. Did they actually test anything or did? They simply drive it around. I think they just drove it around. Well, that was dumb take it back and tell them it's pinning and tell them to find out why the hasn't working or the timing is to advance or your timing belt has jumped not any of those things could do it. How many miles on the legacy ninety thousand K we'll have to get rid of this car? Anyway. Legacy was okay for Alba quay, New Mexico. But it's not right for Redlands.

No, blue as a blue hair station songs from the sixties and seventies. Not that either that either classical very hard rock hard. Then you are be driving around on stinking legacy. Let's get rid of that. I mean, you'll get thing. The problem is simple. It's going to be the timing. It'll take them ten minutes to change it, and it will be perfect, and you can go back to using regular gas, which is all you oughta have to use this car anyway and start looking at me out as an Audi TT's, Carol.

"I mean, they just such an attacking force and playing at home, even though Trubisky would scare me a little bit and making prediction and even these are the Super Bowl champs. But we know that they have not been all of themselves of this year. And it's been a rocky road for the eagles. I can't deny that pass rush. And I think that they force a fumble or an interception or something that turns the game. And I'm going to pick the bears at Soldier Field this weekend. And you know, what Mitch and Bob if there's one game out of all the games this weekend. Where weather could you know, be a factor in the game? It might be in Chicago, which is where it's supposed to be in the thirties on on Sunday. And the wind might blow is around fifty miles an hour. So that if the eagles can't win without throwing based I can win without throwing and we've seen games this year were to Bisky through one hundred fifty or one hundred sixty yards and they won. I just I'm gonna ride with the eagles. And I I'm only I'm only betting on them with my heart because I love this story and nothing against a the bears. And because they have been maybe the biggest surprise of the entire season. They might be the biggest because of what Mack meant to the team. But oh my God. I would love to see the eagles get another week, Bobby. I'd love to see the eagles. Get another weekend football. I'm not on that ticket bandwagon. So I know you if I was thinking how many different teams over the course of the season. Have we said boy, it's good to have them in the mix. You know, because it's good for everybody. Have a great season Alice's one Chicago, Bears dub air the monsters. Anyway, even had heard a player. Thank God for my forget who it was one of their players actually make a reference to the monsters in the mid way. I'm glad that they were wear their heritage was good. And of course, the eagles because eagles defending champions, and so on and so forth and Philadelphia is a fun town of in football season the eagles and all that Noto. But I'm they lose they lose. I don't care. I even though that's my that's just my original to put a ball around this to put a ball around. This before we go to party. I will say this a vastly interesting NFL regular season. Now leads right into I'm telling you if any any one of those games, but other years retail that's the best game of the week. And we have four compelling matchups. It's interesting because of where they're being played and how that is going to shape our opinion of them. So oh my God. I am quite happy that and what makes the NFL sets unique league. And for all the issues we have with their management than how they discipline and all the rest of what makes it so unique. It's this is like going to Woodstock all these games are just the the the the precursor to the bands that come out at two AM and four him because you've got the LA Rams and the New Orleans Saints and the winged patriots. And the Kansas City. They're not even playing this weekend. They're just waiting for you, the it. We get it. Just it just shapes up to be a really interesting postseason. And and and, you know, this is what you have to take your hat off to the NFL they created drama and product, and and and balance in a league where you really don't know who's gonna win the Super Bowl at all. The teams that are in there. And and I can't wait for Saturday to come..
