When the portuguese ships six of them to be precise round the corner and start firing on changsha and jungle and then ninety three ships from the chinese fleet joined. The portuguese and blockade junk are trapped in this bay for about two weeks. There's a standoff. Two weeks finally. The head of the chinese fleet gets frustrated. The nothing's happening and so he sets forty three of his ships on fire. Oh collazo and pushes them toward the pirate exactly turned his own ships into weapons. Y- pulled a francis drake and he's hoping it will work and he's hoping it'll set. Pirate ships on fire now. The pirates are better than that baby divert. The fire ships. Tow them onshore. Put the fire out and use them for firewood. Except for two of the fire ships that are still floating in the bay when the wind changes and they are blown back into the chinese fleet light to of the chinese fleets on ships on fire and taking advantage of the wind. And that distraction. Junk powell and changsha break through the blockade and escape as a result of this whole showdown. The chinese fleet lost three ships. And at least seventy four men. The pirates lost zero ships and forty men. How it was just things like this keep happening. They're very clever. They don't make stupid decisions and working together as a team. They can outsmart pretty much every fleet that comes at them. They are unstoppable. But as the years pass jingsheng can tell. The tiger turning the european powers are coming in and they are much harder to combat than the chinese fleet. Having seen many of her pirate cohort suffer.

See leads the delegation of seventeen women and children to guangzhou and negotiates with the ching representative amending bilingual. He agrees to her terms. Freedom twenty to thirty ships that they can keep it in private fleet. Wow and none of their pirates will be punished or executed. What he agrees which is amazing. Wow this is the most notorious pirate in history. That's very trusting to like that. He believes that she she can just say to everybody. And we're done. We won't be pirates anymore and they'll all just stop. i mean. He must really have believed that she was the boss. Yeah and that. She was honest. Right honesty among thieves. Or she's just so powerful that he doesn't dare say no. I mean i you know what. What's the unitive here. It's an amazing interaction. And i would give almost anything to be a fly on the wall and see what happened there too. But the end result is that she and chung house render seventeen thousand three hundred and eighteen pirates two hundred and twenty six ships and retire to the country. Wow and was nobody really. Nobody was tarnished. All of these pirates simply retired. Many of them are absorbed into the chinese military including junk bao. Pu becomes lieutenant in the chinese navy. Why why tell us i really. Yeah yeah yeah wait. So they all lived happily ever after. Well she sure did she died at sixty nine years old bleeding relatively peaceful life after the death of chung pow. She was allegedly proprietor of an infamous gambling. House somewhere in guangdong so by all accounts she led this very successful pirate life and then led a very successful post retirement life. She had a lovely financially secure retirements. I happy i mean it really does feel very made up and book but it's what actually and again i i just love the way she breaks all these narratives. I love the way. She's changing the way we think about what leadership quite in line. And and what. The end of piracy my. They might just get tired and be like how much smarter she just kind of. Pay off your pirates with a few ships in a gambling house if a few of them military positions and let them fight on your side as the becoming threat to china. Let's fight them instead of our own. Pirates yeah and just leave them alone. I mean it's fairly odd. I like it. You know any woman who can bring together seventy thousand pirates. That's a skilled negotiator. Now too bad. They didn't put her in the government. Like maybe she could've saved. Yes could she of accomplish raoult's one thing. I had not thought of that. I find totally fascinating. The doctor goodell points out is where she acquired those skills Her business acumen like her ability to negotiate and her political savvy all comes from her role as a sex worker where she was involved with politicians and government officials and businessmen of varying ranks. And so she a lot of street smarts and she used those to her advantage which was really important to arise as pirate quyen..

"It was a pretty natural progression into piracy. We know that england used privateers extensively going back to that episode on the english spanish war. Remember that in the battle of the spanish armada. The english navy did feature a large number of english privateers however. I do want to be clear that this was not exclusively in english club. Other countries absolutely were using privateers to varying degrees. It is also important to note that we'll privateers were celebrated heroes. Everybody hated pirates. This is why. Despite east kitschy past francis drake would become sir francis drake. What then is the advantage to the individual nation if everybody hated pirates why create a class of people that was so likely to descend into piracy in the future. The answer to that question lies. Within the realm of pragmatism. The battle of the spanish armada provides us with a good example. And by the way. I never would have guessed that i would be talking. About the english spanish war episode so much seventy episodes. After the fact today we are used to thinking of the british as being in naval powerhouse and from the eighteenth century up into the twentieth century. That is absolutely true. They were just that however back. During the sixteenth century they were not yet a naval power. The english navy would not have been able to defeat. The spanish armada one on one therefore privateers made a lot of sense as they were a method whereby a country could supplement their existing navy drain the rapid expansion of english colonization during the seventeenth century. The navy was strengthened by a good margin however with england increasingly becoming a colonial power. Their navy was being stretched thin. Inter- the privateer. Who can do things like interrupted enemy shipping lanes and hence interfere with their economy over time. This would decrease the enemy's ability to fund the war in the short term by attacking the enemy ships using privateers. It was possible to reduce the enemy's projection of power in the colonies by using privateers to conduct skirmishes on the other side of the atlantic. It freed up far more valuable english warships.

"Which the enemy had let fall as he fled somewhat for that we marched with such speed but more for that they lay so thick and cross one on the other being returned. We made our stand near the midst of the marketplace. Where a tree growth hard by the cross whence our captain sent some of our men to stay the ringing of the alarm bell with continued all this while but the church being very strongly built in fast shut. They could not without firing. Which are captain forbade. Get into the steeple. Where the bell rung. In the meantime our captain having taken two or three spaniards in their flight commanded them to show him. The governor's house where he understood was the ordinary place of unloading the molay. Mules of all the treasure which came from panama. By the king's appointment although the silver only was kept their the gold pearl and jewels being there once entered by the kings officer was carried from thence to the king's treasure house not far off being a house. Very strongly built of limestone for the safekeeping. They're up at our coming. To the governor's house. We found the great door where the mules usually unladen even then opened a candle lighted upon the top of the stairs and affair. Janet ready saddled either for the governor himself or some other of his household to carry it after him by means of this light. We saw a huge of silver in that nether lower room being a pile of bars of silver of as near as we could guess seventy feet in length of ten feet in breadth and twelve feet in height piled up against the wall. Each bar was between thirty five and forty pounds in weight at site hereof. Our captain commanded straightly that. None of us should touch a bar of silver but stand upon our weapons because the town was full of people and there was in the king's treasure house near the water side. More gold and jewels than all our four penises with presently set. Some in hand to break open notwithstanding the spaniards report the strength of it. We were no sooner return to our strength but there was a report brought by some of our men that are pincers were endangered to be taken and that if we ourselves got bored before day we should be oppressed with multitude. Both of soldiers townspeople. This report had his ground from one. Diego in negro who in the time of the first conflict came in call to our penises to know whether they were kept in drake's and upon answer received continued intriguing to be taken aboard though he had first three or four shot made him and tell at length they fetched him and learn by him that not past eight days. Before our arrival the king had sent dither. Some one hundred fifty soldiers to guard the town against the maroons and the town at this time was full of people beside which all the rather believed. Because it agreed with the report of the negroes which we took before at the isle of pinos and therefore our captain sent his brother in john oxygen to understand the truth thereof they found are men which we left in our penises much frightened by reason that they saw great troops and companies running up and down with matches lighted some with other weapons crying k.

"On the West Coast. Is not about the election because Washington, Oregon and California are firmly blue states. There is not a debate here is hardly a Republican Party. On the statewide level the Legislature in Sacramento, It's completely democratic. It probably reflects the opinion of everyone that these electoral college votes are already with Joe Biden, therefore, The demonstrations in Seattle. The demonstrations in Oakland the fire bombing in Oakland must a major puzzle for all of us. We're not going to solve it now. We are going to go to Portland. Because in these last days, it was reported. That the secretary of Homeland security Mr Wolfe and the governor of organ Miss Brown, Cape Brown, had come to an understanding about federal authority. Defending the federal courthouse, the Mark Hatfield Federal courthouse and the Oregon State Police were two take up positions to defend the court house from Marauders. Jeff What is the situation now? Do the marauders continue late at night? Is the courthouse still at risk? Is the deal between Brown and Wolf being honored. Good evening to you could be John. The deal is being honored right now. And Secretary Wolf sent a note today saying he was proud. That thing's held up that there wasn't any attack on the federal courthouse last night. He did tried them saying, You know what should have taken 60 nights of consecutive violence for this to take place. But it does look like the deal between with the Oregon State Police, the Portland police and the governor and the mayor are holding up in terms of federal property and federal first now But they still had unrest in Portland, as they've had for the past two months, every single night, so that hasn't changed. Could it could it spark into something bigger? It has before and so people are keeping an eye on it. But for now, it seems like Secretaries wolf, his team. His men are not standing in the way of protesters right now, Where is the protest? Geoff? You tell me is not necessarily at the courthouse. Where did they go? It's in downtown square area there. There's park nearby, which is a handy staging area and out shit place where a lot of the protesters did black overnight or longer, but that it's an area that has offices has retail on government buildings down there, so it's driven. A lot of that does this out. It's destroying some of the buildings. It's created a lot of damage in the tens of millions of dollars. And you have business people saying they're never coming back. But for a lot of people, it's now a no go zone, So you're not going down there to shop? You're not going down there to support restaurants is already hurting from the cold did pandemic and such. It's Ah, it's a place that's kind of being laid to waste in the sense of It's not really a place. Anybody can go and enjoy themselves do business. Why no curfew. Do they debate a curfew and nine o'clock curfew and 11 o'clock curfew might inhibit though the marauders I can't tell you everything that's happened in every planning meeting. But I can tell you that the mood or the ethos I should say there in Portland is to bend to the will of the protestors. More often than not so. They're going to back off and let the protesters have plied, you know, Freehand it whatever they want to do, and we saw how far that went. But in terms of having a clamp down with a major, you know, all city curfew ends like that. That's really not up for discussion. And I can tell you not only with the city fathers and mothers not let that happen, but I don't think the police would put themselves in that situation either. We go to the council culture in California. I learnt that Sir. Fence Francis Drake is a very popular figure. But his statue, 30 foot tall, steals statue of Sir Francis Drake. Has been removed. There's video. Why, Jeff? What did you do? This is in Marin County. Marin County, which is on the north end of the bay. So she crossed the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. You end up in Marin County. It's a very liberal area of the day, and that's saying a lot. But they have a number of Francis Drake statues, highways you name in that area because Drake was the seagoing admiral of the British Navy who helped wipe out the Spanish Armada and help claim that part of California for England at the time, and he's a great Explorer. He was kind of a swashbuckling hero type. Embodied a lot of things that people thought were admirable over the years. What a lot of people didn't know is that he had a background was slave trading. So as it's come up with all this wave of cancel culture, his name is now on that list of, you know, do not associate with him and don't have statues. So statues were coming down. Names are coming off roads, even the high school in large store, which is where the statue is. Is going to be renamed from Sir Francis Drake to who knows? Maybe the Washington football team. I don't know. All right, sir Francis Drake has gone, But here's a puzzle. This is San Francisco Chronicle. Saying that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Those names right now are under consideration to be purged from the San Francisco school system. Jeff Abraham Lincoln AAI. I was flabbergasted when they attacked the statue of us Grand. I thought that was a bridge too far. But Abraham Lincoln This is where you have to probably cue up. The music don't know much about history because these people are tearing down statues without any regard to, you know, understanding the role of these people played in the history of our our nation. People point at Washington Jefferson say, Well, they own slaves at one time, and people are now saying Lincoln didn't do enough to free the slaves or even to fight you know, to be an abolitionist rose. A lot of people are warning. Roosevelt has long been the thing that the guy that all others were measured by in the Democratic Party. Remember, he signed the order that caused Japanese Americans Inter.

Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out? There is a place I feel bad commending it, but there's a web spins now Weber spins is a national chain across the country. If you live in the UK, you know about web of Spain's. They've actually got really nice bar that down on the Babacan. Babacan, which is right by the Plymouth Gin Distiller Selfish Nickel Jin from that, but they've got huge selection of our genes of a drinks there, but all the buildings there because they're all medieval style buildings that is then become ingrained within the actual itself garnered sovereignty. Highly recommend that this is places down the thyroid record. Think of any off the top of my head. Okay mix over a new kind of places and very traditional old pubs as well which great.

A Manhunt on the 17th Centurys High Seas

"Steven. Johnson joins US now. He is the author of many books many bestselling books including farsighted. And how we got to now but he joins us to talk about. His latest book is called enemy of all mankind. A true story of piracy power and Histories. First Global Manhunt Steven. Thanks for being here but much having me. There are lots of exciting terms just in your title and subtitle alone. I WANNA start with those even though and we'll talk about this. There's a larger story that you want to tell with this book but let's begin with piracy because that's a fun word. What happened on September Eleventh? Sixteen Ninety Five. There's a kind of interesting bleak poetry to the fact that this happened on September eleventh. Basically the events that are at the center of the book is a clash at sea in the Indian Ocean between pilot. Ship led by a very mysterious figure who would become the most notorious criminal in the world. A guy named Henry Avery and a much larger Indian treasure ship whose name was anglicized as the gun sway and the translation of that into English is excessive treasurer or exceeding treasure. So they were being pretty conspicuous with maiming. This vessel in terms of the of treasurer on board and effectively. These two ships confront each other on September eleven sixty ninety five by all rights. The pirate ship should have been easily overpowered but to incredibly unlikely things happen a cannon onboard board that Indian ship explodes because of some kind of malfunctioning design which basically turns cannon into a bomb when it explodes in so instantly. There's this you know. Many people on Indian ship killed the deck catches on fire. And at the same time. The first cannon fire from the pirate ship manages to have this incredibly lucky shot where they split the main mast of the Indian chip in two which effectively disables at in in the water and so the pirates are able to board the ship they pull off this heist that in today's currency we be would be worth as much as one hundred million dollars so it makes one of the most lucrative crime some in the history of crime and triggers a global crisis that reverberates around the world. Okay before we get to that crisis because you would wonder why one active piracy would do that. Just general picture of the piracy problem at that time. I'm always taken aback by the way that pirates are these cute Nara dwells in children's picture books or like Johnny Depp for many people. But that's not what piracy was back. Then what did it looked like? And was this unusual. Well actually one of the origin points to this project for me was years and years ago. I mean something like fifteen years ago. When my kids were very young we went to Disneyworld and we went on the pirates of the Caribbean ride and it was right after nine eleven and I had this on. I was floating down this little canals. That ride songs are being song and everything. That's very Kelly. The that the pirates were the terrorists of the seventeen hundreds and sixteen hundreds right. They were these terrifying figures would show up out of nowhere and burn your village down and attack. The women and people lived in fear of them. Here was three hundred years later. And it's just a kind of a children's story so they'll link between pirates and terrorism. Which is something that runs kind of subtly through enemy of all mankind actually began on that. Disneyworld ride in some ways. But what's historically really important about pirates at this point in history and one of the reasons why this particular story has so much significance. I think is up until this point. There was a very blurry line in terms of the legitimacy of piracy so there was this other class of occupation. That was called being a a private here. And if you were a privateer from all outside appearances you're a pirate attacking other ships and stealing their treasure and doing all these atrocious things that seat. But as long as you weren't attacking if you were a British privateer as long as you weren't attacking British ships. You're within the zone of and people like Francis. Drake a couple of generations before Henry Avery. When often basically we live the life of piracy but then came back to England and was knighted and bought a giant estate and lived a completely legitimate lifestyle. And so in a sense what happens to this period because of crime for reasons we can get into. It's a turning point where the British crown finally has to take a stand against piracy. They have to basically announced to the world that they're not a nation of pirates the way they've been accused to be. Let's talk about what made this pirate attack so noteworthy. Obviously there was the hall but were there other things that made this a big deal at the time. There are a couple of big ones. I is the other element of the crime. This ship that they attacked was a ship that had been doing business and ports of call like Mocha in the red seat but it was also filled with religious pilgrims coming back from Mecca on a whole other level was kind of a Muslim like religious transport vessel as well and among those pilgrims were a significant number of women women in the Royal Court of Aranda. Who was the great grand mogul of India? The last of the moguls and this was an unusual thing. At the time right you would not see a lot of big vessels in sixteen ninety five. That had a significant number of women on board but there are all these female pilgrims on board and so when the pirates attack the guns way they find these women there and number of the pirates rape the women on board. Some of the women commit suicide jumping overboard to avoid being attacked. And so there's this kind of outbreak of the atrocious sexual violence that happens as part of the crime and of course WORD GETS BACK TO WRONGS. Zab that not only has a hundred million dollars of his assets been stolen but members of his extended royal family have been sexually attacked and violated and this all is crucial in terms of geopolitics. Because it's right at a moment in a time where there's a major economic transition happening in the world. There's a chapter in the book called two kinds of treasure and is basically. There are two different ways of making a fortune that are in conflict with each other here. There's a very old way which is represented by Aurangzeb which is have an autocratic dynasty tax year citizens. Sit On that wealth and pass it onto your descendants. That's what every most of the rich people in the world at this point where people who were members of some kind of royal family that had some kind of dynastic wealth. But there's this new way of making money that has just appearing in it comes in the form of this interesting embryonic. New Organization called the multinational publicly traded corporation and that was the east India company. The east India Company was the first company that actually had publicly traded shares. So that people could. Outsiders could invest in the company in those shares could go up or down in value and for the first time people were making money not just through the prophets of the business but through the increase in value of these publicly traded shares and that turned out to be the future. Right dot is how if you look at the one hundred richest people in the world today. The vast majority of them were people who made money because they had traded shares in a company. They found that their parents found it. So in a sense clash between these two massive economic forces and Henry. Avery in his little pirate ship gets right in the middle of it because once. Iran's UB here's that his money has been stolen in women have been raped he threatened to eject the east India company from India which is the main source of their income. They've been trading CALICO and chinse fabrics and so on and if that had happened if they've been thrown out of India the whole course of the British Empire would have been transformed. It's entirely likely that the British Empire would not have formed in in India in the subsequent decades. If the east India company had been injected. So why wasn't it? Attracted rings up puts a number of the employees of the east India Company under house arrest and threatens to execute them and they began a furious letter writing campaign back to London. Saying we have to find the pirate we have to bring him to justice and we have to announce to the world that we are not going to tolerate piracy anymore or else this whole incredibly lucrative business that the country is increasingly dependent on is just going to disappear and so. That's what triggers this global manhunt really the first one in

The Good Pirate

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host crumb today. I'm continuing my investigation into the myths and mysteries surrounding pirates in one individual in particular because not all pirates were that evil that raped and pillaged their way up various villages along the coast. One such individual who was a pirate was Francis Drake. He was born in fifteen forty. Two by fifteen seventy six. He was the queen's favor and was directed to sail to a secret location one. She only disclosed to her inner circle. The difficulty in determining the location isn't honest return after circumnavigating the world upon his arrival back in England the coin hat all his maps and shipped logs locked up to this day. Few of these documents have been released despite. This history has revealed that Spain had blocked. Most of the trade routes England had used and she had found one end of the fabled northwest passage and the drake was to establish the other end meanwhile amateur to story and Robert Ward thinks. Drake was on a secret mission to find the northwest passage. And that's why he was sailing so far up the west coast. The idea is drake sailed up the coast. Until he found something he thought was the northwest passage perhaps Strait of Juan de Fuca but drake's bad located not far from point Reyes California and fourteen other sides claimed to be where in fifteen seventy nine drake spent sixty eight days now. He spent those sixty eight days because he needed a place to make repairs. Which involves something called careening? This is where the ship was pulled completely out of the water so that our whole be made free of worms barnacles the location of California's raise for the sixty eight day. Stay and repair of the ship are based on the area code. Drakes Bay fit in maps description of the bay where he stayed and a page from a ship's log that listed the side as thirty eight degrees north latitude and a brass plaque. The description of Indians found there but the plaque was declared a fake in nineteen thirty six and the fact that the Indians lived off. Acorns was never mentioned. And that the shape of the Bay but Oregon's whale cove also fits the shape of the bay on the map but the Indians were described as living in huts that were partially below ground. When the University of Oregon Examining area in the cove they found that just as described on the page of the ship slog the remnants of a native American hut partly underground near the side. Number of English coins were found that dated back to just before. Drake set sail. Also there was a document a firsthand description based on the observation of eight of his crew. That stated that they had stopped at forty four degrees north latitude. It would seem that a all the sites that claim to be were drake spent that summer of sixty eight days. Only the organ location forty four degrees north latitude which is exactly well. Co has the most real physical evidence of his visit. If you're driving up the Oregon coast be sure to stop at the town of Depot. Bake and enjoy the small town hospitality. Drive another mile and a half to whale cove and try to imagine what it was like for Sir Francis. Drake back in fifteen seventy nine but the debate. Over the location of Drake's North American stop rages on and despite evidence pointing at Oregon's well only put to rest when England releases all drake's maps and logs from his trip around the

Ronald Reagan's Address to Nation on the Challenger

"Our. I fire nation. Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God. Thank you

But yeah, there's the the right left hemisphere distinction is very complicated. Because you know, if you look at literary art the left hemispheres heavily involved because you're reading and if you look at visual art, there's a lot of right hemisphere involvement because of the visual areas of the brain, but there's also analytic left hemisphere involvement. So it turns out that both hemispheres are always involved in responding to any form of art. But nonetheless, I believe that he that art is a form of play. It's a very important form of play.

"More high seas tales, pull up a seat jimbohannon is on the off beats Eric J doland is author of the book black flags blue waters from liberal right publishing. There were various reasons for becoming a pirate, including even a Royal edict from Queen Elizabeth I Elizabeth was quite jealous of all the riches that Spain was extracting from the new world. So she basically gave sir Francis Drake. Or just Francis Drake at the time waters to go to the Pacific Ocean and plunder those Spanish galleons full of gold and silver small wonder they plundered and at first the British colonies didn't mind New York. Rhode Island almost all of the colonies, with exception of Maryland pretty much. We're welcoming of pirates it all came down to economics up until about seventeen hundred many pirates, certainly the Red Sea pirates as well as pirates came up from the Caribbean. With treasure were welcomed in the colonies. Because they benefited the colonists. Who were struggling on the edge of empire to make it in the new world pirates could have a favorable reputation the gentleman pirate as he came to be known with a guy named Steed bonnet who was a sugar plantation owner in Barbados and the mid seventeen teens when he decided to give up his plush life and become a pirate. Everybody needs a hobby bought it had a short unsuccessful career, although he ran into a more favorites pirate. He was in league with Blackbeard for a while. He got injured and Blackbeard took over his ship. And then he was given back the command of his ship. He decided at one point to go straight and become a privateer. But then he veered back into piracy along the American coast as for Dolan's favourite pirate. I don't really have a favorite because I find them all rather miserable creatures but even with the bar that low few sank to the level of Edward low. He was despicable.
