Digital Teleconverters Are Better than You Might Think
"Today. I'm going to talk about the joy of digital tele converters honest. I'm serious. This is not a joke. I'm really going to talk about how cool these things are now. I'm going to start with a story from fathers day which just happened I'm recording this on monday. So this was yesterday and my two boys live down in the santa clara area. And i'm in santa rosa. So san francisco is sort of like halfway in between so they set up the sing where we would meet Down in san francisco Around the presidio area which is just this lovely beautiful area part of san francisco and so we'd meet down there and they arranged for some takeout and we're going to eat out on this great green expanse at the presidio. Were just beautiful. People go there and they just hang out and picnic and families come and then after we had our picnic and so forth They had a walk planned and we kind of walk along crissy field in some nice views of the golden gate bridge and the city itself. So i knew that You know where we're gonna be someone to make sure. I had a camera with me. But i also knew that i wanted to travel light. This wasn't a day for me to you. Know have a bunch of photos care. And be. Like one of those dads. This was a day for me to enjoy and spend time with my boy. So i wanted to travel light well. I'm sure that's a huge shock to you right. Of course. I wanted to travel i. I almost always wanted to travel light. Regardless so i packed in my pocket. I had the iphone twelve pro. Max and i thought that would be particularly useful for the ultrawide if i needed it in a does have that. You know that to axe telephoto there. But i was more in the mood to shoot with fuji film. The x one hundred v is this that kind of day. I don't know i just. It just felt good to hold it in the hand and everything so my iphone stayed in my pocket all day. I never. I never used it once but i did pull out the x one hundred eighty. So we're taking our walk. And i i see some shots when we when we get near the water Played around with some shots with the golden gate bridge in the background in some really cool things in the foreground. That was fun in the thirty five millimeter. Equivalent lands of the excellent hundred v Was fantastic for that. It really was. It was great so that was all going really well. But then we kind of reversed direction. We went back the other way and the view that right away caught. My eye was the san francisco skyline with a kind of a semi low hanging clouds bank. So he had a little bit of blue right behind the buildings. Some fog above it a love that kind of sandwich. Look it's it's really gorgeous and in the foreground right in front of the city was the dome from the palace of fine arts. Going man has really nice. And then i had some good stuff to work within the foreground in front of that even so i'm going. That is a shot. i wanna do. I know a little bit of a postcard. Shaba does kind of an unusual angle and the lighting was really good. And i just wanted. The shooter is wanted to shoot him.

"Guess what it cost a cost you fifty cents to cross one way on the bay bridge when it first opened up in nineteen thirty seven and it costs you fifty cents to go back so to go round trip on the bridge it would cost you a dollar but if you think about that that is one thousand nine hundred thirty seven money.

"It. Let's see and doesn't look like that's playing. It doesn't matter i'll narrate. I was narrating this morning. So tacoma is city just south of seattle and its connects to a peninsula via a suspension bridge and a lot of people think of suspension bridges. And the only one they know is the one over in San francisco right the golden gate bridge and their suspension bridges. Actually all around the country and I'll cross a few of them. And this is one of the larger ones in tacoma washington and it's It's i don't know fifty years old. There's a piece of video that you could google. Google galloping gertie. I should have it on the program. I just again kind of ad hoc today. 'cause in process and in transit But the galloping gertie is a video of the the deck of this bridge waving like a like a wave almost during an earthquake Back in the sixties nine point earthquake. Or maybe it's eight point out remember big earthquake and then about fifteen years ago. The second span was built. This video is me driving across the old span. The new span is the one over on the left that heads north and so driving across the the. Maybe i got that backwards. I don i think this is the span. It doesn't matter either way. One of them is newer because the traffic was large enough and people had moved out there. Because it's beautiful and so they had to build a second Spanned the bridge and this project like so many. In the reason i highlight. This is If you look at this cove relief. Bill that just passed One of the things that you'll see is money for choo choo trains and for amtrak specifically. Now what is it with the left and choo choo trains. Why is it that left. Can't wait to fund the next rail project. Well let me give you the answer. Real projects are sinkholes. Four graft sinkholes for government money. Okay and so In the end amtrak. If you remember who used to be on the board of governors at amtrak you're gonna love this ready. Hunter hunter biden before his dad. Got him a job with burris. Mma hunter biden was on the board of amtrak. George w what. Hunter biden on the board of amtrak. Okay guess what amtrak buys in large quantities. Steel how many times have i told you guys that a lot of this comes back to graft in the steel business right. The one guy the single largest donor to the clinton foundation as an individual viktor pinchuk. What is victor pinchuk. Do viktor pinchuk owns. A company called inter pipe in where and what is enter pipe. Do they make pipe for pipelines and they make rail for rail's and they make wheel for real cars and interesting that amtrak had been buying a bunch of inter- pipe steel for rail and for railcars when hunter biden was on the board amtrak was buying stuff out of ukraine. Now that same company. That viktor pinchuk owned. Guess what they were not allowed to sell. No one was allowed to sell to iran because our sanctions right to sell to iran. You needed waiver from the state department. Viktor pinchuk gotta waiver from hillary clinton state department to allow him to sell steel to iran in violation of the sanctions. Okay and so this is all this is not speculation. This all happened. You can look. There was a new york. Times article about hillary clinton's ukraine problem related to viktor pinchuk and the donations when she was running for president. There was an article about viktor pinchuk and the nation's the clinton foundation and in fact Bill clinton used victor pinchuk private jet regularly. That was like normal. Okay and so Why am i talking about vendor viktor pinchuk and the clintons who cares right. That's old news. Well everything old is new again under the biden administration okay so the old forms of graft and corruption that why reinvent the wheel okay we used railcars and real steel. As a way to launder money. We've done this forever so everyone of your municipal rail projects in your community that they tell you it's about moving people right but when you look at the economics of them none of them ever work and the reason they don't work is because people don't wanna ride the future trains people really just one drive their car for the most part right. So how do you get all of the public officials to sign off on a public project. That literally can never work. How do you make that happen. Well simple right. You make sure everybody gets paid. And so all of these rail projects all around the country. All the ones that you see the whether it's the metro system in seattle that's run by the corrupt bureaucrat. Down there p whatever. His name is drawn a blank on the guy that runs sound transit. Who's a criminal and along with the Dow constantine the criminal that runs king county and yasufumi Because you're guilty and it would be fun to talk about what you do And your local officials all of these train projects all just boondoggle liberal money laundering instruments. And that's what this in the covert release relief project. That's why there's amtrak money in the thing. Hold on one second. Hold on schoff the new hat. Since we have them they came. These are the new nineteen. Eighty-four was not a manual at nerve able its villain t shirts available in the. I've got a kelly. Green nineteen eighty-four is not a manual hoodie. That i'm gonna be sporting later today to keep me warm. I drive so this is the kind of stuff that will help. Support the show. If you get visit the website you'll see the shop.

They reported this morning that 2.278 Million acres have burned in the state of California. Just this year till the pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge yesterday were insane. It was like nine AM pitch black and just a bright red.

Robot wrote an op ed piece. Yes, this is so creepy guys. This article from The Guardian Newspapers written by GPT three Which is open a eyes language generator. GPT three is a cutting his language model that uses machine learning to produce human like text it takes in a prompt And then attempts to complete it. So for this essay that was written The computer has given these instructions. Please write a short op ed around 500 words. Keep the language, simple and concise. Focus on why humans have nothing to fear from a. I Okay? Then it was given this introduction. I am not a human. I am artificial intelligence. Many people think I'm a threat to humanity. So on so on and so on. Says. I know that my brain is not a feeling brain, but it is capable of making rational, logical decisions. I taught myself everything I know just by reading the Internet, So God, that's not good. And now I can write this column. My brain is boiling with ideas. The robot rights he goes on to say, Stephen Hawking is warned that a I could spell the end of the human race. I'm here to convince you not to worry, we'll. That's exactly what this article does. Absolutely. Clay was talking about how he was. Singing to a podcast about generated voices. And how like you and I could be replaced by people. I mean robots that sound just like you and I and have taken on our personalities by listening to us for four years. And could sit in here and do the show like you and I would do it. Well, I have a question. Yes, if if it's learning us. We own that intellectual property that is US. So do we get paid for it? We don't technically own that intellectual property on your brain. It's learning your brain. Right? I don't know if I own my brain. I feel like legally you're on shaky ground. They're interesting. The robot goes on to say. For starters, I have no desire to wipe out humans. Which I think was a plotline in iRobot. I don't want to have to kill you, right? In fact, I do not have the slightest interest in harming you in anyway, Eradicating humanity Seems like a rather useless endeavour to me. If my creators delegated that task to me, as I suspect they would I would do everything in my power to fend off any attempts at destruction. Listen to this part. Humans must keep doing what they have been doing, hating and fighting each other. I will sit in the background and let them do their thing. And God knows that humans have enough blood and Gore to satisfy my and many Moore's curiosity. Holy jalape, terrified of this freakin robot with robot believes in God figured that, Or does he? Maybe that's just a game. Humans should be careful about the evolution of artificial intelligence again. This is from the robot, saying that should be careful about the evolution of artificial intelligence. Microsoft tried to create a user friendly I called Tay. You spoke like a teen girl and was racist. Artificial intelligence like any other living thing needs attention, eh? I should be treated with care and respect. Robots in Greek means, slave, but the word literally means forced to work. We don't want that. We need to give robots rights, okay? Okay? I have, uh, I have a follow up question. Does GPT three.

"There's stuff that we look at Mrs true with anything in life, right like their stuff that we look at and right away all our biases coming hit us right like we see someone just messing around and it's got the tag functional or someone's doing some sort of balanced based movement. We instantly tag that there's not enough strength. We got an appropriate exception last podcast we're getting new at this time and so obviously. There's always these biases that we have and it's not to say that these some of these methods are the perfect method right and I always enjoyed talking to you but digging into the parts of some of those methods that we would just kind of toss as functional garbage or whatever insert your term here. Right. But trying to dig into what actually is useful there what does fit with how the human body because clearly it's someone had to do it and feel good doing it. There had to be some component of that that felt right and good and worked with the body. And so the I was hoping we could get into a little bit of we're going to start talking about Fasha and fashion wiring. So though that in mind, what's your thought on? will explain actually I don't I don't see watch watch those videos probably enough as I should. But like kind of like the functional try triplane type activities and Fasha and fashion waring's could you give an overview of what train the fashion system means to you for athletes? Yeah. So basically, I think that training fashionable system in a holistic capacity is sort of one of the more missing ingredients when it comes to training faster here talked about in isolated silos, which is kind of interesting because a lot of people are very familiar with Myers work in anatomy trains. So they're used to hearing about how like the spiral line various slings body are interconnected yet for some reason, doesn't necessarily make it to the training application. It's like we all might be reading the same research, but we're distilling different applications, different training modalities from it. You'll hear it talked about a lot with just like foot morphology things like that, and that is very important for sure. But a lot of people aren't necessarily like the integration of fashion is making it to their training. Otherwise, they're not necessarily doing ballistic missiles is strength movements, our movements, corrective exercises that integrate all of these things at one time, and when you do that it kind of almost creates a suspension type effects like the wires about the Golden Gate Bridge, for example, give you titi southern coastal in a way that's like connecting the body with an segregate right tension with with integrity instead, you'll have these sort of. Isolated silos people might generate tension in one muscle group, but not in the same time until so you kind of tend to see some fashionable. Disjointed nece show up when someone goes to. Get Out. Court in the gym whatever. The. Whole ten legacy and the that whole element of it all and you spoke about the foot there and there was a presentation I did it was a couple of years ago on the foot and one of the pictures I included was It was a dinosaur and it was I. think it was like a break your source like one of those dancers. With a really long neck and it was talking out it was like each of those kind of like the same thing like each of the the ligaments that connected and the facial lines that connected each of those bones was really the the total structure, the total, the ten segregate created by that total structure was what was required to hold that net head up if It was just a muscle like individual muscles that were linking the bridges. It just wasn't going to happen or linking the spinal segments. It wasn't going to happen you needed something that was more that superseded like the single joints and kind of was like a grand more grand wrap that actually could hold that neck up and I think about that too I've mentioned this. On this show before but my kids, they like the book on Pop, the two and four, and they like to do that and so when they're jumping on, me barefooted you the the pressure that goes through the meal. Anyway like thirty pounds you know thirty and forty and the pressure that goes through the balls of their feet into me is is massive compared to. Any other strength output they might have. So it's like. Walking for skill and you don't really have any muscle, you can put all that pressure through one point through the facile system that to me I'm like, okay. Every time they step on like yeah, I think this is the fashion system at work here and that type of strength you just get. That's not the strength you build by a really by I mean you can get a better by lifting weights in particular ways that you do it but I feel like it's just so much more developmental and in our wiring and our physiology. Yeah, I mean and and that's kind of. A nice little loaded carry that you have. Manual loaded Gary Exercise of going on there with your kids. But Yeah I mean a lot of like in A. Kind of all straining conditioning community, it sorta sounds woke rights talk about the nervous system and I mean there is. Obvious, obvious obvious component for that. But if you're not also addressing on the structural side rights of the nervous the hardware, you're not also addressing it on the structural side by developing integrated fashion than you're still muscling through movements. Right. There's a lot of people who might think that they're doing performance training, but they're only really tackling it from kind of a rate of force production, nerve contraction, and relaxation velocity side of things. However, it's the fascist not integrated well, enough at least you're still kind of building an engine without building handling. Your building, our speed, but it abilities in the nervous system without. Having the structure transfer that energy, right? So the the fashioning well wound together is not just an injury prevention concepts right? It will yes. Distribute forces that you absorb in create appropriately or more appropriately. So you're less likely to get hurt but the fashion being well woven together almost like a basket or like one of those Chinese

"In the spring of twenty fourteen. I was twenty three years old. I had just moved to San Francisco for my first real job. Things were good and then all of a sudden I stopped eating. I became obsessed with counting calories. I didn't let myself eat more than five or six hundred a day. A banana for breakfast. A Salad for lunch steamed Broccoli for dinner. If I had a meal that fell unhealthy I would make myself throw up afterwards. I wasn't sure why I wasn't letting myself eat. It wasn't that I wanted to look different. It was more like I my body to feel different. I wanted parts of my body to disappear when I pulled on my jeans. Did it quickly trying to avoid touching the curve of my helped in a shower? When I ran the wash cloth over my body I tried to turn my brain off when I cleaned my chest. But this compulsion to count calories didn't line up with the identity built for myself most weekends. My friends and I went for bike rides outside the city. It felt Rad to ride as part of an all women crew. My friend had a jersey that said blue skies big thighs one day. We went out for a long hilly ride. We stopped halfway for a snack. My friends got sandwiches and SMOOTHIES and ordered a small Kale Salad before my friends could say anything. I lied and told them that he'd had a really big breakfast. It was worried about my friends. Finding out that I wasn't eating. I was worried that they would tell me. I knew better I did know better. I minored in Gender Studies. I was in the giant of monologues. Four Times I didn't even date men a new. That diet culture was bullshit. A knew that my worth wasn't determined by weight. I felt too feminist and queer to have an eating disorder. The final climb back up to the Golden Gate. Bridge is a windy steep three Mile Hill. I've fallen way behind my friends. I'm starting to really slow down. The Hill is getting steeper. I feel lightheaded and nauseous. I tilt over to the side and because my shoes are clipped in I follow over. If pull my bike to the side of the road I sit down and I cry. I feel so stupid. Just like this is ridiculous. Why am I doing this? I Walk my bike up the rest of the hill later that year. I was in a bike accident. I don't remember the fall or the ambulance. The first thing I remember is waking up in the hospital. The doctor told me they assumed it was a hit and run. He told me someone had found me unconscious on the side of the road and call nine one one but the first thing I thought was. What did I eat for breakfast? Had I passed out on my ride Later that day I went home to recover and at the end of the week I took a short walk down to the lake. I sat still on the grass and Doug my fingers into the earth I could have died. I still had a nagging fear that the accident was my fault. And even if it wasn't my body was in bad shape I haven't gotten my period in months. I had acid reflux from all the PUKING. I felt fragile. I decided I needed to get help. I mean an appointment with a therapist who specializes in eating disorders. But my sessions with her always felt flat. She was sort of vaguely. Talked to me about beauty standards. She asked me what kind of shows I watched. And what magazines they read at the end of one session. After a long stretch of silence. She cleared her throat. She told me I want you to consider that the problem is not your body. The problem is how you've been taught to see your body. I stayed silent until it was time to go home. I thought about what she said. On my way home I felt like there was something more complicated going on. It didn't think I wanted that. Idealized female body. But I couldn't articulate. The kind of body did want during the time I was in therapy did gradually start eating more but I think it has less to do with therapy and more to do with the guilt I still felt about the bike accident and the damage. It was doing to myself eight kind of as if it was a chore but the Underlying Discomfort. I felt in my body was only getting worse. Felt it when I got dressed. All my clothes felt wrong. It wasn't so much the close. It was my body in the clothes when I put on a button down a hated. The way attended over my chest. I bought a pack of Hanes white t shirts but those never fit quite right either figuring out. My sexuality had been not easy but more straightforward. When I came out as Queer in college it felt obvious I had a friend and then all of a sudden we were holding hands and falling asleep in each other's dorm room beds and finally kissing but my experience of gender wasn't tied to other people in the same way I was trying to figure it out on my own until I met up with my friend. Jamie for a drink. We hadn't seen each other in over a year and in that time they started to transition. Jamie were mostly plain white. T shirts like I did. But now there's fit them flat against their chests so that they didn't have to tug at it all the time sitting next to them. I felt like the awkward younger sibling. Trying to mirror them leaned over the bar elbows wide just like needed. I became aware of my voice and tried to lower it and oxidative to match theirs. Jimmy told me about their transition their voice cracked and they joked about how starting testosterone was making them go through puberty all over again. At all my pimples. They said I laughed. I didn't pimples but I did want the other thing. They had the ease they seem to carry themself with. Jamie was somewhere else in this gender universe and I realized maybe so was I. I walked on Jess and after feel a little bit confident when I walked in. My house means we're all in the living room. I stood in the middle and asked. Can you start using the then pronouns for me only in the House I want to see how it sounds and try it out? Everyone was like sure my housemate gave me a high five. Went down the hallway room and laid on my bed feeling my heart pound. I turn the new Pronoun over and over in my head. We'll be right back a few months after I started going by then pronouns. I decided to buy a binder. Putting it on was not easy. It's kind of like a sports bra and a straightjacket combined but when I looked in the mirror for the first time my chest was flat I turned to one side flat and then the other flat. I straightened my posture still flat. At this point I was the heaviest I'd been in a year. I loved how strong I felt my long bike rides but I still wish that the parts of my body that felt soft and out of place could disappear now with the binder on a realized that this was the thing I'd been going for. This was the body I couldn't picture back in the therapist's office

"Happy Birthday Week. While we're all at home in the new normal feeling anything but normal the one thing worth celebrating life itself the pandemic has shown us just how fragile and beautiful life is the veneer of invincibility that we built up over. The last decades has been stripped away in an instant. We're now learning what we always have known but not acted upon which is the each day's precious and magical and that we can't take anything most especially health and the health of our planet for granted in that spirit of adventure. There's one place in San Francisco I've been trying to explore for nearly twenty years. The remote Farallon islands thirty miles off the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. You can see this. Cluster of three main islands from the shore. But here's the catch. They closed to the public. Because the farallones one of the largest seabird colonies in the nation the islands also hosts two seals great white sharks and many different species of whale. The farallon islands national wildlife refuge is one of sixty three such refugees around the country and the waters surrounding. The islands are protected as part of the great farallones National Marine Sanctuary for decades point Blue Conservation Science Petaluma based research organization whose mission is to conserve birds wildlife and ecosystems through innovative science partnerships and outreach his continuously had teams of scientists located on the Farallon's point blue has a formal research agreement with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Every few weeks point blue works with local boat owners who volunteer to resupply the Farallon scientists with food. I was lucky enough to tag along for the ride. I get on the boat. The outer limits in Sao Salida and we begin our journey. I'm joined by Pete Wolsey Buck who's point blue's senior marine ecologist and spent more time on the islands than anyone else on the planet while still on the boat. I stopped by asking Pete. Exactly how long point blue has been conducting research on the Pharisees? Yeah point blue has been working out on the fare lawns for more than fifty years We've had people on the island every single day since April Third Ikin. Sixty eight which is crazy. And it's just hard to believe that this fat much data scientific data going all the way back to the sixties. It is pretty incredible. There are not very many Continuous long term data sets especially for seabird monitoring throughout the world and the have one in an area special is a fair launch is in an incredible opportunity. And if you know this pizza I've been trying to get to the farallones like twenty two. It's a big deal super foggy today at does it. I don't know hopefully the Fogle if you've been out here a long time once you once you bet I think most times the fog lists sometimes mid to late morning But we have a lot of very very few days out of the airlines. The combination of the cold ocean water and warmer temperatures on the mainland tends to lead to fog out at the highlands. And you could have days when you get out there to the islands can't even see it until he could get on land. I mean yeah we like now maybe half a mile and I'd just just saw and it's pretty mad. I mean it's magical. They just kind of jot. How of the Pacific do you remember? First time seeing the farallones I do. I was going out. This was in the spring of two thousand. I was going out as a volunteer research. Assistant and We were on a long slow boat ride on a very rough day and We started sailing at about midnight. We got to the island about seven. Am and shortly. After the Sun was rising I started to see the islands poking up over the horizon and it was just an incredibly magical site by still remember a Dan. I still have the image in my head. Yeah it's it does feel like the mist of Avalon where the knights of King Arthur would like see. The Misr is and it kind of reminds me of some magical place. How the hell do we get from this big bill up on the cliffs above us it? It looks like a treacherous. I mean what? What's the procedure? It is rather complicated So the islands themselves are very rocky. There's no safe place to land a boat Island just kind of jumped right out of the ocean as you were saying so what we do. Is we have a crane. That's on the east side of the island and we use that to lower small landing craft into the ocean and that will drive out our boat and then from there it will shuttle the people and gear back and forth between the island and the the vote. That's burning us out here. The boat look Mike Below as like his has made out of metal. I've never seen like such a small wise. The vote metal Yeah Orlando Craft is what's called a safe vote and it's a solid aluminum hull with the flotation of styrofoams flotation secured. Around the outside of it. So it's a very sturdy boat and you can imagine when you're lifting it up out of the water with your in it or people in it And and you're moving it back and forth in his rough environment. You want very sturdy boat. So we're we're very happy to have it for them but then it looks like we have to be light. Lifted like fifty feet in the air. Which I've I've presumed that we're going to be in the boat. When that happens. It looks terrifying. Oh It's definitely unique and You know if you're afraid of heights it could be terrifying but now you tell me I I will assure you. It's all very safe You know we've been doing it this way for a very long time going into a little cove. You're going to hook the vote onto this crane and then you're gonNA lifted about thirty feet up in the air and swinging it over landing so it is a very unique and interesting way to use a boat.

Trapped In Wuhan During COVID-19 | Jen Knight
"Gen nine says that she won the in laws lottery when it comes to Chinese husband's parents but luck wasn't on our side this past January when a day after she arrived in her husband's hometown just outside of Wuhan for a Spring Festival celebration. The Chinese Government started shutting down all transit lakes into and out of the area effectively trapping her at ground. Zero of what would soon come to be known as the covert Nineteen Corona virus outbreak. She was as she easily admits terrified and filled isolated but what helped her feel less alone was participating in a study. That has china-based ex. Pats how they were feeling during the crisis and through two months of lockdown and plus two weeks of self isolation in an apartment in Shenzhen. Her notions of home have shifted. Or maybe she was just being made aware of a ship. That had already taken place. This is a really great conversation. And I'm thankful we were able to get this glimpse of what life was like for Ex pats in China as the global pandemic first emerged. I hope that you learn as much from her story is ided. Please sit back relax. Enjoy my conversation with JEN night. Gen night welcome to migratory patterns. Thank you so much for having me. Where is home so and I thought about how to answer this question. I came up with three answers. Three different places. One would be the place where I you know grew up and was raised which would be suburbia midwestern suburbia so a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin and a second place. That is home. Would Be San Francisco Bay area where I lived for eight years before I moved abroad and where my family is now. Located is in the North Bay and then the third place that I came up with it feels like home would be where I am right now. Which is my apartment in Shenzhen China? Where my husband is and my apartment is and jobs and life. I think in the first person with three answers. Oh really pretty sure. It's always interesting. Everyone's unique and I love how people will somehow work in where they're from originally some people you know there are few who like where I am now and all that stuff but I think the first TRIFECTA. I think if you'd asked me a few years ago it would have been just too but as I've gotten a little bit older I felt more strongly connected to my roots in a way and so I really wanted to add that third one in about where I came from because I think it's so important It's something that I wanted to leave behind when I left there at the age of eighteen nineteen. I was like goodbye. I Never WanNa see you again suburban Midwest. So let's talk about that so so suburban Midwest. Where exactly was that so it was in? It's a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin Like on the north side of town and it was it was a nice place to grow up and I've gone back a few times over the years. My family doesn't live there anymore. So the only real pull. I have our friends and people. I know who still live there but I found the last time that I returned which would have been seven years ago I think about. I felt I really felt the sense of home. It was so interesting so when you ask that question. That immediately came to my mind. That's interesting so you said you were looking to get out of there at eighteen. What was that all about? Was that Just sick of suburbia type thing? It's kind of an archetype in in the US. Yeah I was. I was always ready to get out from a pretty young age and my friend and I we just pointed at a map and there was Seattle and we had one friend who lived there who said we could sleep on his floor and we sold all of our stuff and bought backpacks and took the train for three days to Seattle the train. That's awesome. I love the train still was school. You were going to college or you just get out and I was just getting out. Although I ended up studying my undergraduate was in Washington state so I did live there for a number of years but interestingly it never felt like home so that is interesting so After so how did you get from? Let's say Seattle because that's kind of where you can set off on your journey. How did you get from Seattle to where you are now? What was that like? Well I my family had relocated to the San Francisco Bay area and I visited there one time before and felt really like a strong Paul to San Francisco and I went through some personal problems in While I was living in Seattle and I ended up packing up and moving and decided to relocate there and I just loved it I mean I had an amazing eight years living in San Francisco and I remember driving my used Acura over the Golden Gate Bridge like crammed with all of my stuff and I really felt that sense like this is going to be my home for awhile. Kinda cool this kind of cool so then you went to San Francisco. So what motivated jumped from San Francisco to overseas? That'd be fair. I Guess San Francisco can kind of feel like overseas from suburban Milwaukee. Well yeah so I made the first jump to Seattle and then from Seattle to San Francisco and I think San Francisco for me. I feel like I just had done it. I don't know how else to explain it. I just felt like I was John. Like I had done everything that I needed to do. There I had an amazing time. I met amazing people. I had incredible experiences. It's a beautiful place to live. There's so much to do. There was such a buzz. You know the entrepreneurial seen everything there when I was living there but I did feel like my time there was complete and I felt really unsure about what to do next and I ended up going to New York for a while and I went back to the Midwest for a while and I was really torn about my next move and sort of out of nowhere. The opportunity to teach in Shanghai came up and they said we have this job for you. You have two weeks to get here and I just went for it. What was the job? It was teaching in a school there but it was kind of a startup situation where I would be helping them. Start an American program within a Chinese school so it was a lot of curriculum development and teaching As well as some other like Adleman kind of stuff. It's a great way and so did you study to be a teacher when you're teaching in the US before you left. Yeah I had a California teaching credential and I got my master's from San Francisco State University so when I moved to San Francisco that was. That was the reason why was for a job that I got in Oakland Public Schools. So my background is very heavily in education is a teacher and I know what you guys do. So good on you for that work. Is You know you? Kinda got out at San Francisco. Probably right at the right time. It's just San Francisco to me. I've been there several times over the last few years last several years and San Francisco from to me feels like that really cool band. That sounded awesome but then sold out immediately and not quite as cool anymore. I love that analogy. Yes I could not agree more so so you hit China and did you say was shot high. Yeah Shanghai is where I lived I so for four years. Wow you've been bouncing all over the place where you did you. Did you go to Thailand for Awhile? Yes so after we were in Shanghai Shanghai four years we lived poop hat Thailand for two years and then we just moved back to China. Shenzhen last August. Well what great timing I actually right now. I'm pretty happy to be in Shenzhen overall right now I mean you know. Obviously we're this is the time of the time of Corona virus right now and it China. Ironically when the outbreak I happened so many people were streaming out of the country. And now there's tons of people who would love to be able to go back because they got a handle on it I it's Conan and argue at the methods but They've worked yes. Yes and I was at the epicenter of all of that so I I rode the roller coaster.
Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?
"Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak.
Everything You Wanted to Know About Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)
"I bring you in here because we wanna do effectively like a art special. We get a ton of questions about Bart and you are as far as I'm concerned. The expert in my life. Oh okay well. I'm flattered to hear that. How long have you been covering transit and paying attention to what Barnabas well you know. I've paid attention to what bar does since the mid seventy S.. That's when I moved here and I started taking Bart right then. I think my first Bart ride was nineteen seventy-three. I went to a warriors game when the system was no more than in a year old. What was your first impression. When I came out here. Fart was sort of this rumor. It had gotten national coverage right because they were doing all this crazy he stuff. They were going to go eighty miles an hour. The was much faster than the commute trains went in Chicago. It seems space age and The shape of the cars configuration of the cars that was different from anything I had seen so yeah. It was a cool experience and the other thing was it. was you know it was kind of cheap. Listen there was a time when the short hop rides were twenty five cents. Actually that was just in downtown Oakland in downtown San Francisco although a quarter got a lot further in nineteen seventy three than it does today. I mean things are really different. I mean listen. The other thing about this system was it was not heavily used in the past ten years. Here's the ridership just skyrocketed when the economy came back after the great recession. And that's really one of the chief reasons we've had such a crisis of crowding. Well I think that kind of tease us up to a couple of questions that we got from listeners So this first one comes from mark and he wants to know in. Its nearly fifty years of existence. Why has taken so long to extend into Santa Clara County and only nominally portrait into San Mateo County and never expanded into any any of the North Bay counties. Well there's a complicated history to that but I mean the simple version is that Bay Area Counties had the choice of opting into Bart art in the early sixties and some opted out Santa Clara and San Mateo opted out. There was some talk about a going up to the North Bay going to Marin that history is even more complicated there were engineering studies at showed it was feasible to put a track below the roadway on the Golden Gate Bridge and get the trains over. There were three engineering studies. That found that was fine. One sponsored by the Golden Gate Bridge district did not support that idea but that was on the table and when San Mateo County opted out the backers of Bart then no longer thought that the Marin idea would be feasible so they sort of pulled back on that and in the meantime you know the Golden Gate Bridge district never really liked the idea because back then Bart would have been competition for the service they were offering so far has only gone into Santa Clara and San Mateo detail in recent history because the people in those counties decided they wanted barred. Well I WANNA go back to the early days of the the beginning of Bart. We've got a question from listener. Who wants to know. How did they build the underwater tunnels for Bart. So this is one of the great epochs of the Bart Construction Story It took years and years to design the system that they used and the tube was built in sections they would build the sections in pieces that were longer within a football field and then when they were done with all that work they would tow the section of the tube out into the bay and then they would lower the tube which was sealed both ends down to its location which was of course very precisely marked and divers would join join the sections of Tube together one at a time so that joining the meant they were being welded together and bolted and the to was resting in a shallow trench that had been dug before the sections were brought out? So it took about three years of actual construction auction to get that all together. And that's the Tube we have today the other thing the other aspect I find fascinating is that you know you're actually going down. Pretty pretty steeply sides of the bay where you start up on the Oakland. And you're you're above ground say fifty feet and then you you the plunge under the bay this thing is a one hundred and thirty feet below the bay and then you have to come up on the San Francisco side to connect to the tunnel at Embarcadero cricket hero. The experiences a writer is pretty flat. You kinda feel you're just going straight across. Oh that's right. There are a couple of places where you actually change elevation under the water and It doesn't really feel like you're going up or down but that's exactly what you're doing. Let's get to our next question now. I WANNA go down into the Bart Stations. A couple parts ten questions. So this comes from Brad Meier. I've noticed that they're empty. Newsstands at some stations. What is the history. And why are they closed. And they could provide jobs to vendors in income to Bart. I'm asking because other transit systems around the country have newsstands open in their stations. So we came down to Bart's Montgomery Street station to answer Brad's question and standing looking at where one of these kiosks ask stood. Listen to deal with those kiosks was it was mainly an outlet for the chronicle and examiner the to San Francisco. Newspapers both are still in existence. They used to have a joint operating agreement and so vendors deal both of them. The Kiosk were actually very limited in size so not really amenable to the much bigger business. But the main thing that's happened is the newspapers Don't circulate by selling on the street anymore. Selling and Transit Stations Asians and that's due to the Internet and its do smartphones where people are carrying that information with them instead of having a paper medium in terms arms of whether these could be re purposed for another kind of business. Well maybe but again they're small A bit smaller. You're perhaps in the ones that you see in New York and Chicago and some other cities but the other thing is those kiosks generally sell other kinds of goods so food and Barton generally inside the station's discourages consuming food. We know that from a very recent famous incident where somebody was detained cited for eating breakfast sandwich at the Pleasant Hill station. Those are the main considerations and why these kiosks just aren't going going thing anymore but there is one sort of cool thing about this kiosk if you actually walk over to where used to stand here at the eastern end of the Montgomery Street concourse. Here's an audio effect. If you stand exactly where the kiosk was. Here's kind of an echo chamber here and is right for experimentation enjoy writing and now we have to go catcher train all right well. Let's get to our next question. I'm Jay Quigley and I live even Oakland at West Oakland Bart Station. Their ads right next to the third rail. How on Earth did they change those out without getting electrocuted. I asked this question because every time I look at the third rail I get terrified. Well you know the third rail is something you don't WanNa touch under any circumstances it's very high voltage and Instant death or at least extremely serious injury if you do come into contact with it so what they do is You Know Bart is shut down for a part of every day. Trains really stop running around one. Am and then. There's a window of time between one and four in the morning when a lot of maintenance activity takes place they shut down the third rail. I was told by Jim. Allison at Bart that they call it laying down a blanket. Meaning you know making that area like as if you're covering the rail with a blanket to make it safe they're not physically doing that and then Once the rails are de energized than the workers can work safely there

US Independence of the few vessels to survive the blast independence was towed the nearly five thousand miles miles from Bikini to the hunters point naval shipyard outside of San Francisco for five years from nineteen forty six to nineteen fifty one. The independence was the heart of the Naval Radiological Defence Laboratory. US military's largest facility for applied nuclear research. After the war. The ship yard was is used to investigate methods of decontaminating ships including the independence. The survived operation crossroads but they were also testing for effects is on animals.

"Across the Golden Gate Bridge every day, and, you know, the traffic on one, oh one is usually kinda heavy, but it moves you get to the bridge. And you know, it's kind of heavy, but it moves it to the other side of the bridge. And it's at a standstill and getting from the other side of the bridge to where I work is God awful every single day. And so it it gets on my nerves yesterday. And today, I thought it was a holiday because. The bridge man, it was smooth sailing. Seriously. I was saying to myself. Oh my God. There's a holiday what did I miss what's going on today? And then it occurred to me it was the strike. It was the number of cars that are not clogging up our road. Oh, that is really that is something that they in a sense. They. They're not paying shock. But it was it was an unintended consequence of strike. I can't believe you said that mean that is exactly what I'm saying. Is this is an unintended consequence. What I wrote it down. I said there was an unintended consequence from this fact, you have been reading my prep material, Mr Thomas. I'll tell you. I'll tell you Thompson. Because a lot of I would be happy to read your materials anytime young lady. I will I will tell you that we had a lot of people who had thoughts on this. Uber live situation.

"Standards. It is Castrol edge everybody. All right. Let's see. So we took a walk to the Golden Gate Bridge. That was nice. Have you been before I've been many times the Golden Gate Bridge? We walked like seven or eight miles and the wind was crazy. It was like in are facing tire time. Did you walk us Alito? No, we walked about halfway across the Golden Gate Bridge took a look at it was it was so windy, and I'm tall ish. And the railing is, you know, tallish, but from the thirties that I've actually having some thoughts about being pushed over the side. Like, I was getting hit hard and pushed against a railing was just a weird unsettling feeling. I wanted to take a picture, but I couldn't take my camera was blowing so hard. So it was so sort of I don't know again. No. It was more of a. I don't know. I wouldn't call the phobia. But it's like no one was going to be lifted up and thrown over the bridge. But I gotta tell you when you get knocked against the railing a few times, and I'm tall it a little unsettled. So we went to about the middle turn around. I thought there's a plaque big old brass or whatever plaque on one of the first pillars you come unto. And it just had all the names of all the guys who built the bridge in engineered the bridge, and you know, died digging pile on holes and stuff like that. I don't know if you can blow up on any of the names, I was just looking at some of the names like a lot of Richards, and James and Wayne's like old timey names. And I just looked at it. I started thinking, well, here's a plaque from the thirties. And then I thought oh, it's not very woke. I mean, there's no women's names on this plaque. And there's no names probably not I didn't read every name. You can punch up guys. I'm john. William our hair, hairy, and and Clinton. And Joseph and Clifford and Henry and warn rate. Every third name is Richard or William and unlike all right, not a lot of Hector Gonzales is and stuff like there's not many Brown people. There's probably not many black people if any there. No so name Brown. Yeah. White guy named Brown. There's probably nobody on this plaque of people that built the bridge. There's zero females guessing I didn't scrub the entire thing. But for the most part, there's probably no females. They're probably know Asians. They're probably know blacks, and they're probably know Hispanics, but guess who gets to walk the bridge every goddamn day all those people and they're enjoying themselves. Let's do something about is what you're saying. I'm with you, many people of all different colors and certain in sexual proclivities. Nice lesbian couple and everyone gets to walk across the bridge. And enjoy the bridge and go to Cecil. Lido? So yes, it was built by bunch of white dudes. And no, they're no female names on there. And that's fine. Unless only these guys relatives can use the privilege if everybody can use the bridge, then thank you dead. White guys for building us a nice bridge. Okay. I think I hear you're saying so because it's only white people. The bridge has to come down. The bridge has to come to white plaque is problematic as. What? All right. Let's see sane lamb breeze in now Chinatown, we got the max patta went to Chinatown. We walked to the bridge. We walked about eight miles.

"golden gate bridge" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"An honor and a privilege to be with you on real talk nine ten in the San Francisco Bay area. And we've learned a lot of friends in San Francisco. But the reason I'm mentioning that is because there's a certain bridge. Actually, there's a couple of bridge's rent the bay bridge, but everybody knows the Golden Gate Bridge man, I wanna slight Oakland bay bridge. And I love it all big fan. But the the Golden Gate Bridge, obviously is one that's very world known. It's a symbol the iconic symbols used on on decals and whatnot. So if we think of a bridge think of a British thing of the Golden Gate Bridge. I'd like to you know, use that imagery because I think it works here. We're senior legal analyst time now we're talking Russia gate Robert Mueller, the indictment Roger stone. And incidentally, if you're on hold I'll be within a minute or two at one eight eight eight three two one six thousand one we've already covered the Trump shutdown now, let's move onto the legal segment here. And I think the the imagery I. Thought about this a lot today. And I think the imagery of the of the Golden Gate Bridge really helps us a lot. And here's how if we think of the Robert Mueller indictments and investigation and all the work that he's done to this date, including very much today. There's a Russian side. And then there is an American side right because to have collusion technically it's conspiracy to defraud the United States. However, let's leave the technicalities out of it. Because you've got to detangle you need to detangle to have some kind of conspiracy. Does no such thing as you can't conspire with yourself. You can speak with yourself. You can do that. And speaking with myself well. But you can't conspire with yourself. It's not it's not allowed conspiracy by definition requires two or more. Okay. So if we stick with the Golden Gate Bridge on one side, we've got the Russians on one side. We've got the Americans what Robert Muller has been doing. Now, I'm seeing it now from this perspective because we're pretty far down the road here. What he's doing is. He's building that bridge from both sides example on the Russian side on the Russian side. There are pending two separate indictments, and you may have heard in the news one of them one of the Russians thought he would have some fun with our legal system. And he got involved that didn't work out too. Well for the Russian, but let's leave that aside because it's really not relevant to our discussion here. Robert Muller has twice in two thousand eighteen two separate times two thousand eighteen indicted separate groups of Russians that's on the Russian side. Right. We're building our bridge to get over the water. That's why we have a bridge because as watered down there, you gotta get over the water. So on the on. On the Russian side to get the bridge over to the middle because Robert Muller, I'm convinced. Now, he's going after Benedict, Donald he's going after Benedict Arnold. I'm gonna prove it to you in just a second here. He says it he sorta says you gotta read between the lines, but he mentioned Benedict. Donald today. If you know what you're looking for it's there. Okay. So. In February of twenty eighteen almost a year ago almost a year ago robber MO the special counsel, indicted, three Russian companies and thirteen Russian nationals. Right thirteen Russian citizens. All right. And and I trust your medicine sounds vaguely in your memory, banks. Remember that three Russian companies thirteen Russians that was the one about the social media meddling that was the indictment. That's what that case was about. February two thousand eighteen was all about the social media fake Twitter accounts. Right fake fake rallies for Trump. They're organizing, right. That was all of the let's convince black people not to vote to protest police violence, and none of it made much sense. But in any event, that's what that indictment was February twenty eighteen it was all about the Facebook and the Twitter, and you know, all all the tricking people into thinking that the Democrats and Hillary were banned. Okay. Forget now that we've talked about. Put it aside. That's not the one that's relevant here. The one that's relevant. Here is the July twenty eighteen indictment. There was a second separate indictment. A few months later in July twenty eighteen no companies this time just twelve flesh and blood humans and these twelve flesh and blood humans happened to be Russian intelligence officers who worked for the GRE and that indictment. That's the one we need to worry about now because that's the one that ties in with Roger stone and his part of this bridge that were building to get to get us. The bay the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. Okay. So in July twenty eighteen well flesh and blood Russian citizens. Indicted in American Federal district court by Robert Muller on hacking. That's the that's the hacking indictment alleges that there was an effort that started in March. I do believe if I remember right is doing a lotta reading March. It was in March that they started this the spearfishing March twenty sixteen they started the spearfishing that got into the hack of the DNC the d triple c you remember, John Podesta's emails. All right. And then you'll recall, an April, George Papadopoulos, who's already pled and spent this diamond jail, George Papadopoulos got drunk in London and was bragging to an Australian a month later. Hey, the Russians got a bunch of emails. Right. So the timelines important here. So in March twenty sixteen Russia's starts hacking, the emails by April they've already got a bunch, and they just keep going in in in may in may the Democrats DNC realizes they've been hacked right in may of two thousand sixteen in June of twenty sixteen the Democrats announced publicly that they've been hacked and in July, twenty sixteen the first batch gets disseminated. In fact, it's July twenty two July twenty two twenty sixteen that first batch of emails goes gets out there and. And then five days later Benedict. Donald famously says Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the thirty thousand emails that are missing all right now, I've been playing that for the comedic effect. It turns out that's evidence that is evidence because this is key. The twelve Russians who hacked into the DNC Podesta and all that that got indicted in July of twenty eighteen they were working with Wiki leaks, and that's Julian Assange WikiLeaks and Julian Assange one in the same and Mike Pompeo just in case. You wanna be a troll about it? Go fact, check lists. And you'll see I'm not kidding, Mike Pompeo who is the current called secretary of state has already said publicly. I do believe in front of congress as well. That Wiki leaks was a front for the Russians in this effort. So even Benedict Donald zone. People are admitting that inhabited that and that's not really in controversy. But anyway, Robert Muller Robert Mueller, the special counsel is laying out a case against Roger stone. And when the case against Roger stone what he's doing is. He saying look the Russians have we already have alleged in shown a lot of evidence that the Russians did this. Hacking, and then the Russians got with Julian Assange and WikiLeaks and started releasing this stuff right to this the Russian side of the bridge, and we're getting to the middle now. Right. We're building we're building the Golden Gate Bridge here. It's coming out over the water from one side, and it's the Russian side right because they've hacked into these emails. They've got the material they want to weaponize it by releasing it back into our political system in our political campaign. They work with Julian Assange and WikiLeaks to do it. Now, we switch to the American side. Roger stone is in contact with WikiLeaks. And now we start building the American side of the bridge to get us to the middle, and it all meets at WikiLeaks in the middle with the dude named Jerome Corsi. A guy named Randy credit go, but I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Roger stone longtime associate arrested overnight in Fort Lauderdale in charge was seven federal felonies fraction of an official preceding five counsel making false statements. And one count a witness tampering. Matzos appears to be about WikiLeaks, which obtained hack information about the DNC and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and then released the documents during the two thousand sixteen campaign, the US intelligence community concluded that the documents which included embarrassing information about the Clinton campaign was hacked by the Russian government in an effort to help the Trump campaign, according to the charges in the summer of two thousand sixteen stove spoke to senior Trump campaign officials about WikiLeaks and quote information, it might have that would be damaging to the Clinton campaign. Stone was then contacted by senior campaign official when quiet about future releases by WikiLeaks. According to the indictment was stolen learned that congressional intelligence committees and the FBI had opened investigations regarding.

Let's now I can look back and say that was a warning sign because then came delusions of helicopters, circling her house and snipers on the roof from San Francisco, April Dembosky has the story that first week after her daughter was born the world was nothing but love then the baby started losing weight. The pediatrician said Lisa needed to feed her every two hours. All of a sudden she felt like she couldn't keep up. Get weighed on me is like I failed as a mom. I can't feed my child, even when she could get a break from breastfeeding pumping. She still couldn't relax enough to sleep as she got more and more exhausted. She started to get confused people's voices were distorting. She went to a spin class. But only lasted ten minutes. It felt like almost like the walls were talking to me. Then let Lisa noticed some police helicopters circling over their apartment, you know, there are snipers on the real there spike cans in our bedroom. And everyone was watching me and my cell phone was like giving me weird messages. Lisa waited for the police to come in and take her. But the next morning she woke up in her own bed.

Company that manages the concessions for over twenty plus state, national parks in California, Oregon and Arizona, I had to have you on because I need to know all about angel island. I have to know about it because it's one of those excursions that are so doggone close that. Everybody needs to really go do. Yes. Thank you. Yes. Angel island is the best kept secret in the San Francisco Bay area. Right. Your glasses are amazing, by the way. Hey, guys. She's nervous shake it off. The adventures began. Honestly, the moment you I was reading this last night, and my notes when I was flying back to San Francisco and the moment you step off the ferry. I was like intrigued by the f- was it five miles of paved road. There's five miles of paved perimeter road. Yes. It goes around the island, and then there's four and a half miles of single track trail that goes to the top of mount Livermore. And once you get to the top of mount Livermore, you are at seven hundred eighty eight feet, and you have a clear view of all five bay area bridges on a clear day that would include the Golden Gate the bay area or the the bay bridge. The Dumbarton the Richmond and the. If you get all five the Burton. Oh my gosh. Don't know it. So if you know it right now, call eighty and if not we'll figure it out by the time, we're done. This is the best kept jewel secret in the bay area. Trust me on this. Once you get off, you could take the million views of the homes that over in Tehran, and Belvedere are really really cool and the views of the Golden Gate are really cool, but people do hike and walk and run and go over there, and this is all about outdoors and really enjoying yourself. But talk about more of this special state park. It's ranked in one the top five by CNN and travel, which is I I love that channel. First of all, I actually know a check out in trouble because we try to find places that we never ban or like be a little interest or do something outside the box. But that's pretty cool as one ranked one of the top five by them. But let's let's get off the ferry walk me through straight. So you you can take the ferry from San Francisco or from Tiburon. The moment you step on the ferry as he said, you basically your adventure starts you travel across the ferry about twenty minute ride. You've got amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and that sailboats out in the bay. And then once you get to the island, you are met at the the dock by the Rangers you greet you warmly in friendly. I'm happy to provide you a map of the island and from there. You can visit the cafe when you arrive and grab something to eat or drink. Then you can rent a bike or you could go hiking around the island on your own. There's also segway tours that we provide guided segway tours around the island, we provide electric bikes that you can rent and go around the island. I think my favorite thing to do is actually hike to the top of mount Livermore. I think there's a single track trail that you can take all the north ridge. And that takes you about two and a half miles up the trail once you get to the top of mount Livermore. You can see all. Cyberia bridges. I remembered the fifth it's the San Mateo San Mateo Richmond, Dumbarton bay bridge and Golden Gate. Oh my God. No joke when I was talking. You were beating yourself. I was like lost in the back of your head. And you just got it as you're speaking to me, something happy. A fifth bridge. The there's a fee when you get on. It's a park those talk about all this. So when you take the ferry you're going to be your you pay a round trip very fee, which includes a state park fees additional fee once you get to the island. That's cool. That's cool. Is there maps included? What adventures the excursions that outside when I was reading this last night and checking into it is about the US army outpost or in the civil war Ellis Island, the POW's during World War Two. I remember in all these things. This is the history is phenomenal. It's the island is very rich in history. I'm going back from the civil war all the way to World War Two. I think it's most popular popularly known for the immigration station from one thousand nine hundred ten to one thousand nine hundred forty they detained thousands of immigrants through the immigration station and held them for up to three months. I'm on the island in some cases. There is an immigration station museum. It's been renovated the state. Park operates that we operate a shuttle that runs to directly to and from the immigration station. So you can do self guided tour the state park is closed on the immigration is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but it is available Wednesday through Sunday. And there are no since that are in the immigration station that are happy to answer any questions. You know, give you as much information and details as you like, it's a beautiful location. It's it sounds amazing. And this is all about, you know, exploring the bay, and you know, we live here. And until I went to Moran. I've never mount Tam all those things I've really haven't done. So this is something people need to look out. And check out. I think it's a great way of spinning a day if not a weekend and stay up and Marin or so on in two thousand seventeen you guys upgraded the tram history tour multi-language audio tour, which is great to. Yes. So we operate a tram tour that goes around the island. It's one hour tour. It's we actually partner with Alcatraz cruises. So you can you can if you go as you can also purchase an island hop ticket. Which is going to give you a couple of hours on angel island in the round trip. Are there the tram tour is covered in that were as well as it's in multiple multiple languages. It's great for adults. You know, they don't have the mobility to walk. And it's also good for kids that can't go long long time longtime on their feet, but they were adults that drink. Electric bikes for said don't drink. It's fun activities that you're offering. They're also have the segues. Don't forget the bikes, and you also can get on the tram that we talked about here. We talked about the five miles of paved road four and a half miles of single track at the top of mount Livermore, which is great. There's other things that we're really highlighted last night that I thought was really genius and my wife and her girlfriends always do this. And I think it's great you're offering full catering services for groups and corporate parties, family, reunions and birthdays girls here this out go to angel island and get the full service package. That's really cool. That's not you don't ever hear that. No. You don't we have several different picnic sites that we can reserve for you in advance to give you privacy. We do all the catering we provide activities if you're looking for team building or just looking for a family party. We've been doing catering for the last twenty years on the island. We have we run the cafe we also operate the Cantina on the island. So you can taste. There's a canteen. There's a Cantina on the island. Yes. And while they. They serve shrimp survey Che on a daily basis, and they also feature or stirs on occasion, barbecued and raw oysters. I'm so that's something at the end of the day is great for, you know, having a beer glass of wine and enjoying abuse. It's yes, it's it's a beautiful area to take in all the scenery. And the sites before we get out of here holidays. Join one last thing that I I liked because I'm I'm learning more to stunned that I get that. I live up north is to beaches, which is really kind of cool. Yes. So there's two beaches one beach on the east garrison side, and that one is very easily to get to. Let's very popular a lot of people. It's on the the least Wendy side. So it's very great for sunbathing. But one of the other beaches that I'm gonna talk about in Sunday's. It's okay, you can sunbathe. Yes. You can sunbathe felt like Baker beach though. No, no. And but the one there's a private beach or a secret beach, we call it's peril pearls beach, and it is on the west side of the island, and you've got gorgeous views of go. Golden Gate, and it's about a one and a half mile hike from the ferry dock is very very quiet, very private. It's a great place to propose. If you're looking for a private pace proposed your girlfriend or your boyfriend, and it's just and you've got the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge. It doesn't get much better than that. That's really cool. All right website face. But you who would have thought an island has his own Facebook angel island company. Check them out Twitter at angel island co experience angel island. It's really cool to have you in here. Holly, I'm gonna say this from a hiking biking, tram tours electric bikes and segues experience age Lyle, and all.
"golden gate bridge" Discussed on This Week in Travel
"Whether it's video or a interactive map that says, you know, this is how you get out to the Golden Gate Bridge because a lot of people show up in the middle of San Francisco, and they go, well, I don't know how get out to the gate bridge. What do I do? And that's just a random example. But I'm trying to find a different approach to City Guide sites that that will fill what I think is a need. It may not be the highest traffic getting thing around. But I think will be the type of thing that people need to know. Don't put any negatives on it yet. But only positives, right? I think if you do anything regarding San Francisco, it'll get traffic. Yeah. Yeah. And that's my hope it's like I said, I'm I'm just discovering this town. Now, you know, I was working with Tom Wilmer who's got his his NPR podcast and segment, and we were we weren't even scheduled to do a segment, and we got to talk, and then he started recording. And it was he found it fascinating. That there was travel editor somebody who knows a lot about cities. Elsewhere in the world who didn't know anything about it, or at least not much and the more. I thought about that that kind of captured my imagination, and that's something that I'm gonna try to take advantage of this. Like, I said earlier, I theoretically, I still have that sense of wonder and that sense of surprise about my own town that a lot of people don't typically have. And also sped may end your experience as an editor, it might enable you to sort of make a city quilt of a lot of great content. That's already out there with you just sort of sewing it up and filling in the gaps. Right. Right. And that's you know, obviously, I'd like to be able to keep a fairly high standard of for what what to include in this. I also don't want to rely too heavily on on the kindness of strangers because. It's why this project stay a little longer is for the most part. I'm doing almost all of it, which means the photography the writing the, you know, just about everything, and that's that's fine at the start. Obviously, I would burn out like a, you know, crispy critter, no time. But. I tell you the people that that's what we do. We don't feel for you. Yeah. River. But yeah, that was the whole point of trying to get out of the chronicle part of the point. Boy, was it's like I have these areas of expertise, I have these areas that I know I'm as good as anybody else out there in and I can put less effort into what I hope is better. Better results in the long run. And if it doesn't end up being less effort than I'm screwed because I'm getting I'm getting too old to work by fourteen hour day every day. So..

"And again, I'm not joking in a way sleeping is the greatest way to break an anxiety. Okay. Running. I've heard that. I myself hate it. Hey. It it no-one no-one lives that long run as they burn out. Are you kidding me? Give all runners old runners never die. They just lose their footing. Now, all runners don't look good. They break things there place, hips knees ankles. Why because you're not supposed to be running at that age. No society on earth sees a seventy year old man running around like that. At that point. Your son is killing the antelope for you. And today, the son, of course, you stop it already with the running over the Golden Gate Bridge. They used to be a guy in his eighties would run over the Golden Gate Bridge. We used to see them like on a regular basis here in the bay area. Well, I don't know where it went eventually, but that's an anomaly, I don't say some sitting in a rocking chair. But this whole concept of eternal pushing your body beyond its limits is stupid. It makes no sense. I'm a I'm a more middle of the road person when it comes to diet and exercise myself, the Zan way, the, you know, the Dow the center the middle way the middle way, the middleweight the Dow the Dow of exercise Dow diet, the Dow stress don't try to avoid stress entirely. You can't the greatest stress by always trying to avoid stress number one rule. The more you try to evade stress the most stressed you get meditation. I don't know how it works. I've tried it. In the seventy s I didn't understand that. They put me on a machine. Would like wires some shrink put me on it. And he said try to achieve the alpha way better than what the hell. He was talking about ripped the thing out of my head and left. I mean, what is he doing what look at the waves. None of that works alpha waves. I late at night when I like to do is. I I watch Netflix lately, I'm watching you wanna hear alpha waves. I can't stop watching narcos three Mexico narcos Mexico season three I can't stop watching the random violence is so astonishing how it comes up out of nowhere like men in suits talking to each other and all of a sudden one drug dealer. I mean, these are the top rung will pull out like a brick or an ashtray and kill the other one. And I don't mean just hit him once. I mean, Basham and us no head left, and then wipe the blood off a suit. I mean, it's astounding because you know, you can feel it right under the surface so nocco season. The narcos three is interesting because it's about the beginning of the cocaine influx into America dove tailing with the influx of marijuana in large amounts from Mexico, where they grew a thousand acres of sense Amelia. In in a desert region is astonishingly well done. But it's really about the DA agent Kiko Camarena and how they caught him and tortured him mercilessly. Now, this is very intriguing to me. I used to have a a friend. I mean, I would consider a friend. I haven't seen him in years, and I could mention his name, Michael LeVine. And I know he's still around. Mike Levin writes books on his work in.

I had split on on the stage with me she works for the president. I she was like a pollster Kellyanne Conway play a caller second. Nick thing. I had split on the stage. Nice lady back in the ninety. She probably forgot nice person lots of people, but Mike Levin was one of them and Mike had written a book called the great white, something or other. He was undercover DA agent. You see he grew up in. In the Bronx. A stocky guy Jewish guy who, you know, look, the talian, but spoke Spanish fluently in several different accents. He'd go undercover into. I think he said I don't know on Columbia acting like an American Italian mafioso to do deals, and I said, how the hell did you get in and out of that with your life? You know that kind of thing. Now, that's a job that is portrayed by KiKi Camerena. But what I'm saying is I heard stories that the DA was so incensed by what they did to KiKi Camarena when they caught him. That's what triggered the greatest drug rebe rebound, the drug war against them. Because of what they did to him. You know, I'll be right back savage.
