Why Doesn't California Build Big Dams Any More?
"Been talking about how most of our water comes from a system of dams and reservoirs set up to capture the states precipitation so one logical solution here is more dams right. Not so fast says jay lund a professor of civil and environmental engineering at uc davis story. I tell people is if you were the first engineer in california and you were going to build the first reservoir where would you put it. You had put it the cheapest place that gives you the most water. Where would you put the reservoir the next best place. We've done this fifteen hundred times. What do we have left. Expensive places that don't give you much water. He says with fifteen hundred dams in the state all the good damn spots are taken heck. Even a lot of the bad spots are taken but that doesn't mean that there aren't smart things we can do with our reservoirs as david romero takes it from here with four big ideas so the first big idea has to do with managing those fifteen hundred reservoirs differently. I learned how lake mendocino along the russian river. That's where i met. Nick mala savage in the middle of the mostly dry lake bed. He helps manage the lake for the us army corps of engineers in two thousand nineteen. The water was about forty feet over our heads. He says lake mendocino could go dry by the end of the summer mar lake levels here at lake. Mendocino are the lowest they've ever been for this time in the year even though this lake is nearly dry it's on the leading edge of science around reservoir management in the past. Water was let out of the reservoir whether or not storms were in the forecast. They wanted to make room for more water. They expected would come but because of climate change. Those storms are becoming less frequent malice. Savage is helping pilot a new approach at lake. Mendocino conserve wait until a major rainstorm is coming and then let water out of the reservoir. It's called forecast informed reservoir operations. We can sit on this water. We can continue to watch the forecast and then you see that big boomer of a storm conham then you can make the decision. Hey the sun's still shining. We need to put water into the river. Generate that airspace for the next storm. And we're good
Why are Pools on Cruise Ships so Small?
"When i stay in las vegas resort hotels would say five thousand guests have vast pools but not so on a ship of similar passenger numbers at best. The swimming pools on cruise ships are twenty foot by forty foot by five foot deep. And i found out there are three key reasons for that. First of all water is extremely heavy and the water in that modest poor alone ways around two hundred and fifty thousand pounds this making the ship really top heavy and challenging to sail and keep stable when you sailing the seas so size needs to be limited and then the pools have to be in the middle of the ship and dead center the deck to help with the balance the ones at the rear are always much much smaller. That's also why you always see hot tubs. Mirroring each other with one on both sides of the ship in exactly the same position again. It's the balance out the wait. Secondly the more weight at the top of the ship the more counterbalance weight has to be added to the base of the ship to keep it stable. This of course it's more space lower down and as more weight to the ship now to get around this problem. The old cruise liners from the forties fifties in the sixties like cunard's. Qe to they used to have the poor inside the ship and at the very bottom in whose case it was actually a roundabout the waterline. Nowadays passengers expect pools to be out in the sunlight and so they have to be at the top of the ship. This actually magnifies the risk of throwing the ship off balanced in rough away the especially when the water starts moving around. You have all that weight moving around. So that's also. Why pulls her often drained emptied when the seas get

It's the second annual unity day celebration sponsored by the italian american civil rights league. There are concerned with fighting.

The godfather isn't real life and the thousands of people at this rally are here to make their voices heard as hard-working law abiding citizens discrimination against italian. Americans is a real problem and has long roots in the united states. but it's nevertheless ironic that the head of the italian american civil rights league. The guy who really is the league is a reputed mob boss himself. Joe colombo colombo. Is there at the rally on this summer morning. Reading his supporters taking photos with politicians people call out to him as he weaves through the crowd. Joe hydro at around eleven forty five.

Climate Change Is Threatening The U.S. West's Water Supply
"Technically just started but it seems. Like the drought in the western. Us is already really extreme. Oh yeah yeah. There is some scary numbers. I'm sorry to say here. I go almost half. The population of the country is facing dry conditions. Seventy percent of the west is in severe drought already. Several states like california and arizona had their dryest year since recordkeeping began in eighteen. Ninety five Wildfire risk is really high. Keep going here. This is very very worrying everything you're saying especially when you put it in a big list like that. Yeah it really is and as you might imagine it's already leading some difficult conversations and then we will provide an update on the current status of the colorado river over so the colorado river is a key water source for seven states around forty million people. Ted cook is a water manager in arizona and he and his colleagues held a meeting in late april that everyone had hoped to avoid the reason. We're meeting today is at lake. Mead is thirty eight percent salt lake. Mead is the largest reservoir on the colorado river and in the country for that matter. It's just outside of las vegas and it's it's formed by the hoover dam. Y'all lauren i have been to the hoover dam o. My family and i drove over the hoover dam when you could still do that when i was fourteen. And what i remember is like precipitously tall. Massive concrete dam and a steep rock canyon. And when you look down at a dizzying so high yeah. Yeah and so back. Then you probably saw like a decent amount of water in the reservoir definitely. Yeah so since you've been there. The vars dropped by a lot since two thousand. It's fallen by a hundred and forty feet. Wow so now what you see when you look out. Is this white bath tub ring on the rocks around the reservoir which kinda shows where the water used to be and just this month it fell to its lowest point since it was first filled in nineteen thirties that is shocking and does that mean people have to start cutting back on their water us. Yeah and this summer you know. We're expecting the first ever official shortage to be declared on the river which basically means mandatory cutbacks for states like arizona. Which is why they call that meeting. Ten cook is expecting a thirty percent cut. He called pant hall reduction painful.
National Corvette Museum Sinkhole
"I'm not much of a car person. But even i know that a corvette is a classic american car. It's one of those things that the name the image is captured. A certain vibe an icon of american nostalgia of american coolness since nineteen eighty-one. Every single corvette has been made in bowling green kentucky. Which is why the corvette museum is. They are safe to say it's a major source of pride for the relatively small city. They've got the blue devil. There's the fortieth anniversary model. There's the nineteen sixty two black corvette. Even if you're not a car person. And i'm definitely not even so these. Things are still kind of amazing to look at which makes the of february twelfth twenty fourteen all the more astonishing a massive sinkhole forty feet wide and thirty feet deep open inside. The museum of these prices corvettes plunged into the songs in high school when the sinkhole happened. And i remember getting a notification on the phone while i was in class and i saw afterwards. A sinkhole had happened at the national museum. That's mariah hughes. She works in the museum's marketing department. Now not long after this happened when the museum was opened to the public. I actually came to see this in cold before they started doing any of the construction. So when you walked into that scott on really you could see all of these damaged. Cars a very large hole filled with dirt and car parts and flooring and carpet signs and stanchions. And then all around it. You could see really museum visitors mourning. The loss of the corvettes fell into this
Interview With Michael Dougherty, Goodyear Chief Pilot
"What's wally hey bob. How're you been tastic. Another week and other podcasts and another guest this morning on the show we have. Michael dougherty the chief pilot and flight operations manager for goodyear which means he's a blimp pilot. Thanks for joining us. Michael guys Pushy on so i. I've talked to a lot of people while that we were going to have this discussion and a lot of people were excited and they asked a lot of questions that i probably had my head before we started thinking about having him on the show. The do you know many balloon pilots. I do not. I know i can say i know michael but he is really the only plan pilot. I know my sure you hear this a lot that this is a very unique position that you hold and you've done it for fourteen years. Tell us a little bit about how you got into it and a little bit. What it's like in the day in the life of chief pilot. Goodyear store it is it is certainly a a very small group of people are are kind of famous. There's more astronauts than there are pilots out there especially with the age of of space flight. I guess but others We we have a full staff at goodyear's is about Thirteen pilots including myself. We've got twelve guys that are attached to accrue for on each crew in In that. I'm the chief pilot in flight operations manager so i do all of the certification stuff check rides proficiency checks that kind of stuff and then i do fill flying gear lair when we've got folks on vacation or short-staffed or something but Bailey we we have a few missions with the airship First and foremost kind of the the one we're best known for is our area. Tv covered so each has a crew of about twenty folks that goes down the road. That's generally four pilots. Each team A couple of crew chiefs we have five aircraft mechanics. That take care of their ship from those detail Through all of its major maintenance and field maintenance and all that kind of stuff. We do have a maintenance support team that that helps support the guys in the field of those guys in the field. Do great majority of the the work. We have Couple of mechanics. Because we've got a preview ground sport fleet we have a semi truck crew boss a couple of mass trucks which are used more the airship two. That's a basically sixty five thousand pounds straight semi truck that that has a forty foot pole. Attached to the that allows us to to attach rate to the nose of the blimp and then when the blue since on the field at night. It's like a big win sock

His business is building ice castles. Will that get harder in a warming world?
"In the movie frozen queen elsa magically creates a palace maid of sparkling ice for brent christianson making an ice palace is harder but the results are still enchanting. We tried to create. What feels like a other worldly experience. Christensen is the founder of ice castles. His company builds elaborate structures that tower up to forty feet high. They start by making thousands of icicles. Which the fuse together. And then spray repeatedly with water so given a month of good cold weather we can create some pretty massive structures. Low temperatures are good for building but visitors dislike extreme cold so the company's sites in utah. Colorado new hampshire and wisconsin are in areas that often hover near thirty two degrees some years. It's really cold some years. It's not and we just gotta hold our breath and work with what we have last year. The wisconsin locations opening was delayed because the ice was melting and climate. Change is bringing more warm days. Long-term definitely if i were to pass this down generation generation. We'd be moving further north. I'm sure but for now. Christianson is coping with the uncertainty and this year his team was able to build. Ice castles fit for queen elsa

The Care and Pruning of Beautyberry
"And Nancy also because last week was your beauty Berry was the plan of the week. She sent us a picture of her beauty Berry and it is beautiful. Absolutely. Gorgeous man that they they're quite something. I think I mentioned last week this one place. I saw them in Mass. It must have been a kind of a semi Serpentine Long Valley Lake area where there was at least thirty-five or forty feet of them spread out five feet wide, probably 3 and 1/2 or so feet tall talk about beauty so long, so I'm glad hers came along and they're well worth having now just as a matter of fact they bloom. Well, they start to grow in the spring bulbs send out new shoots. Then the flowering setting sets in for purposes of getting very this year in the fall where we would need job. Want to prune a lilac or a forsythia at this point in time? Cuz they've already set next year's fly. But the well anybody that owns a beauty Bush did he bury em and definitely cut them back in the spring, you know, one of those decent days in March early April when there's not a whole lot else you can do because the soil is wet. You can cut those back and mine you happen to have been put on a neighbor's property cuz they didn't have room for it. And well, I prune it for them and I take it right back down to 8 inches tall and you talked about looking horrible right after I pick up the brush and walk away, but then on it comes and in due time sets the flowers flowers are there you don't really pay much attention to them. But beauty of the berry in the fall is fantastic.
The Plague of Justinian I
"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode, we're talking about a very dark moment in church history and history the plague of Justinian. The first first let's talk about just in the first he was born in four eighty seven. He came to be Roman emperor in five, twenty seven and he reigned until his death in five sixty three at the time of becoming Roman emperor the barbarian tribes controlled much of what was the Roman Empire The ostrogoths controlled Rome in the boot of Italy that extends down into the Mediterranean Sea the visigoths controlled Spain, the vandals controlled what was formerly North Africa the Roman empire was a fraction and a mere shadow of its former self just Indian ruled from capital at Constantinople. He was determined to bring back the glory that once was the Roman Empire. To do so he would need to launch military campaigns to the east into the Iberian Peninsula to the south and the vandals to the West and the ostrogoths into the north. He had to launch military campaign literally in every direction. And he was very successful after a decade or so of military campaigns warfare. Then in five forty, two Justin faced a new invisible enemy. Well, we'll get to that in a moment first a few more points on just in the first, he is known as giving us the Codex Justinian us it's also sometimes called the Corpus juris civilised. This is the body of civil law. Someone took the time to count it. It's somewhere around the neighborhood one million words. It was a massive rule of law to govern the Roman Empire contains laws on criminal and civil matters on trade, but it also controls laws regarding heresy and Orthodoxy, and even laws regulating paganism. Another thing about just in the first is that he is the creator of the Huggy Sophia he was not the architect though he had significant conversations with the architect and was very influential in the plans but it was under his watch that the Haganah Sophie was built from five, thirty, two to five, thirty seven the old basilica had fallen during riots in that city and just in use the occasion to build what was the biggest church the Roman Empire ever saw its length was two, hundred, sixty, nine feet. Its width was two hundred and forty feet and extended a height of one hundred and eighty feet. It was a massive structure. The HAGIA Sofia. Well, that's just any in the first. Now, briefly on his plague in five, forty to the bubonic plague broke out. This is the your cineas pestis. What came to be known as the black plague. It would come again in the thirteen hundreds and it would manifest throughout the Middle Ages and the time of the reformation. Back in five, forty, two, it is believed to have started in Egypt. This plague then carried on merchant ships too many nations and to three continents. Africa Europe Asia it is credited as the first pandemic in recorded history. It brought all of the efforts of Justinian one to a stop it ended the military campaigns devastated the economy. It ended up killing millions at its height. It would take five thousand lives a day in the city of Constantinople alone. Even. Just any in the first contract. Did it. But he survives one of the stories from that time PRA copious notes of the effect of the plague on the people it caused them to shake off the unrighteousness of their daily lives and practice the duties of religion with diligence but sadly, he also notes. That as soon as they were rid of the disease, they went right back to their old ways. Well, that's just any in the first, and that's the justinian plague five, forty two
Mid-Air Collision - Alaska
"Was a mid air collision of two airplanes near these sold DOT NA airport. On the Peninsula of Alaska near Anchorage. On Friday of last week, killing seven people including a Kaanai lawmaker. A single engine to have lengthy HCC to beaver was involved in the crash which carried six people fifty-seven-year-old Gregory Bell of soul, DOT NA. Forty year old Guy David Rogers of us and South Carolina residents. Caleb. hosie had their Halsey, McKay? Halsey. And Kirsten right according to the LASCA state troopers the only person in the other plane a single engine. Piper PA. Was Sixty three year old state representative Gary Nop of by troopers federal aviation officials said. Six people were confirmed dead at the scene while one person died on the to the central Peninsula hospital in an ambulance. federal NTSB was recovering the two planes and the NTSB Alaska chief. Clint. Johnson said. Well. That's what he said Saturday, the agency help to be finished with recovery efforts by the end of Saturday and the goal is to bring the two planes to secure location in the West Selah area by the way this is from. A local news outlet A D. N. dot com whatever that stands for. So High Adventure Air Charter on Friday posted a message on its website confirming that one of its aircraft was involved in the crash. At, this time high adventure air is working to support families involved in his working with the National Transportation Safety. Board, who is investigating the in the accident? Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the families involved in this tragic accident. Bell the beavers pilot was part of the family owns and operates high adventure air charter based on long near Lake in sold out now. The business offers fishing hunting, bear viewing and glacier tour trips as well as custom charters. The charter plane which was equipped with floats took off from Long Mirror Lake and was headed to the west side of Cook Inlet. The. Piper PAC twelve was equipped with wheels and took off from the sold in the airport but investigators do not know yet where it was headed. Interrupted your first second other pipers that onto quit with wheels the ones that have floats apparently Okay. I kinda struck me. Kind of struck me as odd as well. Must Pipers I think that's a fair statement. Most pipers have wheels. But apparently, because the the BEAVER was float. Float equipped beaver. They felt like they had to. Put that make that point. Okay. That's I could have just said that took off from the Saldana airport not the like. Ben. Anyway. Witnesses. DESCRIBE THE MID air collision, which they say produced a tooth rattling sound and sent debris flying. Alaska State Trooper said they began getting reports of the crash two miles northeast of sultanas airport just before eight thirty in the morning on Friday, most of the wreckage landed about two hundred yards from the road, which was closed briefly to safety concerns and Deborah's are debris. National Weather. Service. Reports from the Sultana airport for Friday morning show clear visibility with broken clouds at ten thousand and four, thousand, five, hundred feet. So anyway, they're still investigating why the collision occurred. and. That's all they have. So it's amazing. How often you get close to alluring craft Pakeha you haven't spotted them and most of these occasions just give everyone a bit of a fright when you get very close about. The advent of eighty s be for everybody is going to help these situations but quite honestly The best thing to do is just keep head out of the cup used them Wanna eyeball but of course, has limitations We all know that. Sudan you know we were. Really through. Our evolution sensory systems are is already designed to pick up moving targets and If you're on a collision course with someone, they don't actually move relative to you because you're a collision course if they moved then you'd easily tell are either gonNA in front of you behind you above you will below you'll whatever.

So does it starts to move one direction or another that you attention is attracted to it. You can say if you look directly at it with the the highest acuity portion of your eye, which those is, you know it's about the size of your fist held on link. It's not a very big piece of your eye.

Why Did the T. Rex Have Such Tiny Arms?
"With a name that literally means tyrant Lizard King You'd assume that tyrannosaurus rex would get a bit more respect, but the giant predators disproportionately small arms have been the subject of ridicule for decades there are also a scientific puzzle more than one hundred years after discovery of this species, experts still don't know why huge animal one that could reach lengths of forty feet, or twelve meters, or more had four limbs. That were much longer. Longer than an adult humans, if the arms were limp muscle free pegues, it'd be easy to assume that they serve no purpose. However, the evidence hints at a more complicated story, a few studies have argued that judge by the muscle scars left behind on T. rex limb bones, a full grown dinosaur could curl more than two hundred and twenty pounds or one hundred kilograms with each one of their biceps then again. This isn't as impressive as it sounds. Thomas R Holtz of vertebrate paleontologist at the University of Maryland tells us that some people like to overrate Tirana sources upper body strength that figure from before only translates to about one point. Two five percent of the dinosaurs total body weight, which may have been in the ballpark of around eight tons or eight thousand kilograms. Holt says that's like a two hundred pound or ninety kilogram man proud. Proud of the ability to curl two point, five pounds or one kilogram on these grounds, a few experts have concluded that tyrannosaurus arms were either functionless or seldom used, but not all paleontologists by this idea for his money. Kenneth Carpenter of UTAH. State University thinks the little limbs made great hunting tools in two thousand, eight, he and fellow paleontologist Christine. Lipkin impaired the five to source rex wishbones. For years that were known to science at the time shaped like a giant boomerang. Sits between the shoulder blades, three of the five wishbones that carpenter and Lipkin studied show, telltale signs of injury, among these were stress fractures, which must have re healed in life. So, what does this mean well? According to carpenter? The fore limbs were subjected to a great deal of repetitive stress, which was not uniform or steady, instead there were moments of extraordinarily great force applied to the arms. The likely explanation is that t rex used its fore limbs to grab hold of large struggling prey, a plus sized thrashing victim could easily fracture the carnivores, wishbone, or at least tear a few arm. Arm Muscles loose other ideas about the purpose of T.. REX arms have nothing to do with subduing victims. One School of thought involves naptime perhaps after a good night's sleep. Taran disorders use those arms to push itself up off the ground, or maybe they had a sexier function. Henry Fairfield Osborn the paleontologist who named the species back in nineteen o five believed that males used their four limbs to grab hold of their mates as Holtz and others have admitted. There simply isn't enough evidence at this time to conclusively refute or verify any of these notions, such is often the nature of paleontology.
The Cascadia Subduction Zone
"Today we're going to look at the Cascadia subduction zone, and what could be a mega quake the Pacific northwest subduction zone earthquakes have occurred every three hundred fifty years since six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for earlier quakes come from core samples taken from the.

Why Deadhead Logs Are So Rare and Valuable (w/ Kevin OConnor) and Why Traveling Makes You Tired
"When you think about buried treasure. You probably don't think about trees ends lumber and yet dead logs are sought after because they could make you rich if you're willing to risk your life for them today to share the story is Kevin O'Connor who set of the Emmy me winning home improvement series this old house. He just wrapped the first season of his new podcast clear story which sheds light on the surprising stories behind our homes and today Kevin joins us with a brief history of dead head logs. Starting with what happened when European colonists I arrived in America hundreds of years ago when when the colonists I got here they were looking for resources and there were abundant resources. It was Virgin growth forest here in this continent Literally a billion acres of this continent of this country covered in trees and for better for worse we harvested them pretty aggressively throughout the seventeen and eighteen hundreds And in the process we took some magnificent supplies eastern white pines signs that were two hundred feet tall straight as an arrow that had been growing for one hundred years and were forty feet around we harvested them in mass those northern northern forests of Minnesota that we ship down the Great Lakes. We clear cut him. We cleaned MINNESOTA. We clear. Cut Him in Maine New Hampshire and in that process because of the era we would cut the trees down in the winter when the ground was frozen and then we get an ox to pull them across a C and snowy paths. Because how else would you move them through the mud and dirt did it. When the ground was slippery yes stack them up on the banks of rivers which were frozen but when the spring came and the snow melted and the rivers rose? You could float the logs from MINNESOTA DOWN TO CHICAGO OR FROM MAINE DOWN TO BOSTON and float him right up to the mills which were along rivers. You'd bring him in chop them up. And it was the heyday of timbering and logging in this this country. And while millions of these things made it from the forest to the mills thousands or hundreds of thousands got stuck along the way and they went to the bottom of Rivers rivers and is a weird thing. That happens when a piece of wood. Big Tree full-size goes to the bottom of a river. It is preserved like like I don't know what in from out of the died a frog and formaldehyde for science there preserved perfectly and they sit there for hundreds of years and now with the virgin forests. All gone all all this Beautiful slow growth timber all gone. There's only one place to get. It gets at the bottom of rivers and their guys who put on snorkel gear scuba gear and they will dive down into black murky rivers. They will literally list risk their lives and we talked to guys who get pinned under logs that way hundreds of pounds or rushed to the hospital because they got bit by poisonous trying to get this stuff but when they get it it's treasure they bring it up and it's beautiful and it could be five hundred or a thousand or two thousand years old and when you slice into it you're the first person to ever use it and see it and it's remarkable so it's rare it's coveted did and if you can find it you can sell it for a whole bunch of Dow because people really really want. Okay so what makes this stuff. So valuable depends on who you ask. I think if you talked to norm Abram who was our master carpenter on a shell legendary carpenter He will tell you it was the beautiful all in unique color of it and also the stability you know if the tree grew for five hundred years in the forest it grew very slowly slowly and we know that means that the rings are closer together which means the rain is tighter and that gives the woods stability and it's very difficult today because things go very fast and we force it and we farm it so he will tell you. It's that unique color the beauty as well as stability. I would argue with them a little a bit. Those things certainly are incredibly important but I think today the most important thing is it has story if you can sit there in your house talking to a guest or friend or even if you had to sell the idea to your spouse and you can point to this thing and say that lumber. I was here when Christopher Columbus showed up it went to the bottom of a river at the heyday of the logging industry. In this country it was was pulled up by a crazy guy a scuba tank and then we sliced through the Cyprus and Carter all the way up here to put it in the floor of this house you got yourself a story and you got yourself just a an invaluable thing. That's what our houses are there. Things that make us feel comfortable. They are the things that we like to show off. There are things that we like to share in that it it just it checks all the boxes right. You're making me really want one. Don't you want one. I could put you into a thousand year old piece of Cypress for eighty bucks a board foot. I'll get back to you on that. That would again. That was Kevin O'Connor his new podcast is called clear story and all ten episodes of the first season are available for you to listen to right now. Find Clear history wherever you listen to podcasts or look for Lincoln. Today's show notes. We got a listener question from Samuel in London. Who Asks? WHAT DO I get super tired after extremely only long car trips or train writes most of the time? I'm just sitting down doing nothing or sleeping but I still always become super tired. Can you please explain. Why Great Question Samuel L. as someone who falls asleep almost immediately on any long trip I definitely know where you're coming from? Samuel there are a lot of elements at play when you travel the can add up to that that sleepy feeling the biggest though is boredom. I mean whether you're in a plane train or automobile. There's not a whole lot to keep you occupied on a long trip. A study study in two thousand seventeen found that the same part of the brain. That's responsible for motivation can also produce sleep so when there's nothing particularly motivating around. We tend to get sleepy. Maybe that part of the brain is called the nucleus accumbens and it's packed with receptors for tiredness triggering molecule called a denizen both caffeine and motivating stimuli stimuli can interfere with these receptors. And keep you from getting sleepy but without either of those. It's a one-way ticket to snooze. Ville studies have also found that the gentle vibrations nations of a vehicle or also. Really good lulling us to sleep. Although scientists aren't really sure why a twenty eighteen study from Australia had people drive in a virtual oh simulator that was set up on a vibration platform. It only took fifteen minutes on a low vibration for the participants to show signs of drowsiness and by thirty minutes in staying alert took significant effort when it comes to staying awake on route the relaxing Of the engine isn't doing you any favors. And of course they're all the little things things on traveled as you probably wake up earlier than normal eat less than nourishing food generally send your normal routines out of whack. You also may be dehydrated whether from recirculated air in a plane or just forgetting to drink water in general and studies suggest that can make you sluggish. So what should you do about it. Honestly take a nap up. But if you'd rather stay alert here are a few things to try. Talk to your travel buddies to keep your mind. Active drink caffeine too full your identity and receptors. Just make sure sure to follow it with lots and lots of water and try your best to eat healthy meals so you don't have a food coma or sugar crash to make things even worse.

great but if they don't last for a long time you will feel as if you have wasted your money so that's why when we talk about these things I like to explain to people if it's going to cost more why is going to cost more if it's a little bit different than what you're envisioning that you want one explain to you why you should consider an option that I'm going to suggest and that is what this show

two one como two oh six four two one five six six six as well as toll free eight seven seven three nine seven comma talking about deck stain this is something that I really believe is important this time of year because a lot of people are looking for the most transparent would stain that they can get texting and I'm going to encourage you to look at something that perhaps you had not considered and that is what's called a solid color would stain sometimes called an opaque would stain and really the reason why this matters is it's not a deck paints but it can in fact add a hint of a colorant to the stain however it will hold up and the reason why I really like it as an option is because it helps prevent mildew which is really something and mold algae that can make your Jack extremely slippery and in the northwest that's important you don't want to slippery Jack the other thing is it will protect the wood and we'll keep the wood from fading so it it's also environmentally friendly which is VOC volatile organic compounds so you don't have to worry that you're putting on it I deck coding that is going to be hazardous to yourself or to others and I think that's really important but I want everyone to take a look at there's one that's called defy and I like it a lot I also like bears version of a pay core solid wood stain I think that it's worth looking at these types of of type of same said so many people are redoing their dacs the railings this time of year so and and what does it mean a little bit more one other words if it's and sherry appearance that you want to sort of a reddish shore caramel type of appearance you're going to get that but it's a little more opaque it's not just sheer but that's also going to give you an extreme amount of protection which is something that I think people are looking for and I care about that because nobody likes to have to redo their Jack over and over and over again Jeff do you mind giving out our phone number again two

considering having one built in my backyard I I've got this in my condo up in Edmonds I've got about roughly about a forty foot by forty foot backyard which is kind of unusual for a kind of all fancy and and that is it still a blank slate just trying to figure out what to do with it and so it but the problem is is that if we all right because I'm on the ground floor I've got this little Patty I step out on that the deck would have to be a step up if they're going to build a deck so what would you go with a deck or would you go with extending the the patio that well concrete is expensive and having it poured but I kinda like in the northwest I like the look of attack I think that a Jack seems to give that woodland type of feel that we all appreciate you certainly could pour concrete another option that you could consider I don't think it would have it would be nearly as attractive is you could work with center blocks in order to build it up but I don't I don't I don't like the look of it but that's your bargain basement you could do it yourself type of approach with the I'm too lazy I and I you know what Jack I've known you long enough to think I don't really see year old

So the core samples were sent to university of southern California to undergo chemical analysis done field kept the results confidential, so we don't know what the analysis said, but he had asked intentions to do more large scale drilling on the main tunnel. So something interesting. This was out of the main tunnel that there was, but they still have drained it. No. So I would imagine what's happening. I would've loved to have seen that because they're digging these holes. And then suddenly it would just be explosions of water as air is coming up. Just this crazy explosion of water. That's true. I hadn't thought about that like create geysers essentially. Yeah, I didn't think about that. It's interesting because it wasn't like mentioned, well, it's not important is really important. What's important is that the fact that that water would have gone. Yeah, I feel that in right. That's true. Probably would've made a pretty cool sound to probably much like the noises I have been making probably just like. So has have they dug further. There's a couple of other expeditions, but nothing more than very old iron nails. Dating back to the seventeen ninety have been found in that could have been from the teenage boys could have done anything. So it's at the bottom of the money pet. Gravel. Bedrock that rook. To this day, we still don't know what to the bottom of. Here's the thing. Nobody's figured it out yet because I feel like they've ruined a ruined it because one they flooded it. Because it was supposed to flood. It was supposed, yeah, but so here's my booby-trapped. It was booby-trapped and I'm willing to bet that had how say it was built by par, whoever whoever built it. Had they gone back and dug it out, they would have known how to counter their traps. That's true. Right. 'cause I'm willing to bet the ideas if someone else finds us and someone else digs this up. If I can't have known right, it's gone sure. And I wouldn't be surprised if the auger dug up. Maybe some little gold trinket. Something. Something worth ally, right? That's why the guy stuck in Spock and ran away just as a like, hey, here's a little. Here's a little bit more of taunt. Keep digging. So that way, maybe you'll trigger something else, you know. And they even said there was a piece of paper that auger probably destroyed, read the rest of that in scattered the remains of it so that nothing else could be found except for that one little piece of VI on who knows what it said. But. I don't know. I do think it's kinda funny to think that maybe it's just down there to mess with people not is not one of the theories that those Gus. I think that if they, if they hit a forty foot pit, I am willing to believe that's the bottom, maybe not. But with as far down as they are, the odds of hitting the bottom become more and more likely, and I think a forty foot pit is big enough to make me believe there's a chance at the bottom. And I mean, goal doesn't float yet just because they hit the bottom. Doesn't mean there's nothing there though? Yeah, because they could've been a. For all we know was a forty foot pit. But how wide was that. Was it wide enough for people to get? Has anyone ever swam down to the bottom of it? Not that I can scuba gear like it seems like now it'd be a good time.
