"Howard hughes was born in one thousand nine hundred five. Perhaps on christmas eve although that seems their documents say different things but we'll say christmas eve in humble texas which is kind of ironic for a man who was anything but humble or houston texas. It sounds like i think it was used because one of the mysteries of his life is that his birth certificate was never found and it was only when he in world war two came around that his aunts had verifies to win. It was born and where the first place so to. This is just typical of a man who lived his whole life with mystery. They don't even have the real birth certificate for that is pretty fascinating in and of itself a man who would ultimately come to be a mysterious figure in so many ways an only child to parents who really didn't have much to start with but whose father and this is just interesting. You know when you think about what's nature and what's nurture that's a big question in the life of howard hughes in that. His father had nothing but his father who was originally from missouri discovered. Or let you say. Designed built a drill bet to drill oil with current and it revolutionize the oil industry because prior to the invention of this drill bit conventional drills. Were basically destroyed when they hit extremely hard rock formations so this particular drill devised a way to go through those formations and in fact it developed at fascinating name. It will feels people called it. The rock eater. Because that's exactly what it did it revolutionize the oil industry and ultimately made howard hughes senior hearts father fabulously wealthy and that was actually the basis of his sons origin. What's also fascinating in terms of. What do you take away from your parents and learn or what has to do with you. Know nate intelligence but he not only built this thing in revolutionized the industry but he chose to a patent it and be rented not sell it. Which really was instrumental in not only making his fortune but keeping his fortune in the sense that ultimately people were always dependent on renting these pieces.

Elon Musk - The Man Behind Tesla and SpaceX

"Well who's elon. Musk well if you don't know you're gonna find out right now. There is so much news internet entertainment on ilan mosque. And i want to tell you that this is only the basics of aeon. Musk who he is. There is plenty to find out about him. I will leave some of the links and the show notes. So don't forget to look but who is elon. Musk and how does he lawns story began. Well he is a visionary entrepreneur and the co founder of paypal and tesla motors as well as the founder of the new space x program which is very popular to day his astounding success has given rise to comparisons to the uniqueness of howard hughes and the tenacity of a henry ford but he did have an often difficult childhood like most of us kids his own age made fun of him from his own descriptions the years were lonely and brutal alon is quoted as saying they got my best friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up and that hurt. That's when i realized that they were going to go after me non stop. That's what made growing up difficult for a number of years. There was no respite. You get chased around by gangs. These gangs tried to beat the insert. Swearword here out of me. And then i'd come home and it would just be awful there as well but not all was wasted. This difficulty cultivated itself into a relentless work ethic a never ending tenacious vision of the future. You see enron was born and raised in south africa and he spent some time in canada before finally moving to the united states thin and the united states. He was educated at the university of pennsylvania. A very good school majoring in physics. That's when ilan started to excel and experiment to soon. Become a serial tech entrepreneur with early successes like zip to an x dot com. He took on two majors at the university of pennsylvania but his time there wasn't all work with a fellow student. He bought a tin bedroom fraternity house which they used as an ad hoc nightclub will. Musk graduated with a bachelor of science and physics at all as a bachelor of arts in economics from the wharton school for ilan. Physics made the deepest impression. He is again quoted as saying and somewhat giving directions to boiling things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from their. Musk was twenty four years old when he moved to california to pursue at phd in applied physics at stanford university with the internet. Exploding in silicon valley booming. Musk had entrepreneurial visions on his mind and dropped out of the physics program just after two days but in two thousand and four. Musk joined to engineers to help. Run tesla motors. You've all heard of tesla motors right. Well this is where. Musk was integral and designing the first electric car. There's no doubt the electric car is the car of the future. But his first car the he designed was the tesla roadster as we are all aware of the tesla has become one of the world's most popular and coveted car brands and is still growing in popularity in the united states and in many different countries tesla and the electric car are taking over but we must never forget about musk's early interest in reading philosophy science fiction and fantasy novels and how that played a big role. I mean a huge role in the inventor that he is today. It is reflected in his sense of idealism and concern with human progress. He aims to work in the areas he has identified as crucial to our future specifically the internet. The transition to renewable energy sources and space colonization and. Ilan has been all over the media. Making three podcast episodes on the joe rogan experience while the first one in which he smoked. Marijuana was pretty funny but in a maximum article. I found this elon. Musk's third appearance on the joe rogan. Experience podcast the genius. Tesla and spacex. Ceo did reveal intriguing plans for a floating tesla. Musk revealed that the long awaited second generation tesla roadster could have a space x package that would allow it to hover at a limited altitude above the ground. Something that we have never seen before with all these new inventions floating around. Is it any wonder why everyone is watching. And curious about ilan's next big thing. Well at tesla fans are awaiting the cyber truck which will make an appearance at the end of twenty twenty one and the exciting numbers are in for ilan's wealth elon. Musk started twenty twenty with a worth of about twenty seven billion dollars and was barely in the top fifty richest people then in july of twenty twenty. Musk past warren buffett. The great billionaire to become the seventh richest person in november. Musk raced past bill gates to become the second richest person. Musk has gained more wealth over the past twelve months then gates his entire net worth of one hundred and thirty two billion dollars and according to cnbc elon. Musk just became the richest person in the world. With a net worth of more than one hundred and eighty five billion dollars alone recently had a new marker for his wealth and that is so cool because of all his inventions and his time spent caring and wanting the united states and the world to move ahead has made a name for himself. There is no doubt an increase in tesla's share price pushed. Musk past jeff bezos of amazon. Who had been the richest person since two thousand seventeen. You see musk's wealth surge over. The past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list and history but why because he is investing in the future. It marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur. Because he cares about what happens in our future so with all his wealth experimentation and knowledge elon. Musk is our future and for those. That are young enough to dream about being an elon. Musk it must start with your curiosity with reading and learning more and more about new and different things and that i want for you and your children now and in the future.

I mean, the big 10 and shifted this, Um, Friday night's over the last couple of seasons, and if there's ever a window for the NFL to make money, you know they're going to capitalize on it.

"Worth believed to be at the time of his death. Not as a subject that has never been fully. That number is never been fully agreed upon. But you know he was a by all intents and purposes of billionaire with the companies that he had owned a Vicky was richer five to ten years before he died when he did die because he had he had passed on. You Know Hughes Tool Company was no longer under his control at that point Which was always the basis for everything with him But so users was the bigger issue was like we know the guy was super-rich whether it's a five hundred million or one point five billion or three billion. Everybody wanted this money and there was mill will that could be found. That was a legitimate will and this is a whole separate book to be written about that. Everybody's looking for a will and nobody's finding a legitimate will because used never signed one. I never completed. The process had started the process. You did a will as early as when he was in his twenty s And he had other attempts at putting together a will but it never wrapped up the process and so when he died Ultimately the judge had to decide that his heirs would be His family members and then there was a battle about who's a family member and who is ultimately the judge decided that there were twenty two legitimate heirs to Howard Hughes and these individuals were. They were people who had never met him and his whole life or people who had not talked to him in decades and The executor of the will Estate I should say was a cousin of is and will join us. And what's interesting about? We'll llamas he was a really good stand up guy and he looked a lot like his cousin. He looked a lot like Howard and he acted like our two large extent but they had only met one time When when we'll was a kid and he was young adult and it never talk since well. We'll let us ended up taking over the estate and he A sold a lot of stuff That Hughes had yet airplanes stashed all over the country. He has property stat. He owned all over the country. He had the casinos on the Las Vegas. Strip which is all the TV station. They sold et CETERA. The ended up keeping one very important piece of property. And that was a twenty five thousand Acre piece of property on the West Side of Las Vegas and that became one of the major legacies of Hughes's involvement with Las Vegas and so then is that area. Now what's known as the suburb or or the the city of Of Summerlin yes So the Summerlin the heirs to To Hughes With US set the lead decided that they would keep this piece of property and that they would develop Las Vegas was then growing and had a huge potential growth potential. Not only for people to come to see those but they actually live here and was twenty five thousand acres a nice area of the valley here. They decided this would become a master planned community to rival any of the biggest invest ones in the country and that proved to be true. They've mazing the thing about Summerlin is bad. It's still not finished. They're still building houses out in Summerlin. I think it's still probably have about five more years of development before it's finally done so you know I have many. I don't happen to live in Sutherland. But a lot of people. I know do live there. It's a wonderful Community schools and churches and businesses and manufacturing in and baseball field. And you know like a Minor League Baseball field hockey practice arena all kinds of great stuff in Summerlin. And that's really become one of the centerpieces of Las Vegas and I mean Summerlin. Really isn't the only the only place that the carries Howard Hughes Legacy in Las Vegas. I mean you really. You can't go anywhere in the city without seeing something I it seems like with with the Hughes name on it. Yeah you know there there. He also His heirs donated money to us. Lv that you're seeing about Las Vegas to their engineering department. So if you go to the Engineering Department you'll see his name. Howard Hughes Engineering school he also built a number of business parks here also very like a like a high end up business park which is called whose center on disolve. Strip and he you zone an airport here on north. What's now called North? Las Vegas Airport was is now on by the county. But at the time he was added. So people remember that A lot of street names in Summerlin are refer to parts of his life people in his life aspects of his life which is. Kinda Fun and even the the Summerlin library that community library there as one of the most extensive exhibits of about Hughes's life. It's mostly about his aviation career. It's a exhibit and that was brought you know that was a a partnership between the library in Hughes Corporation. I should note that the Howard Hughes Corporation Still here a building. Summerlin and involved in some another activities air to as it's the ownership of that is not tied to the heirs anymore but they retained the name. Howard Hughes. I think because it does well for them if IF PEOPLE WANNA take a really really deep dive into the world of Howard Hughes you'd have a book available on Amazon and you actually just released a new version of the book correct. That is correct to the new one is the one. I like the old the original edition but the new edition is is updated substantially and it's longer more material and it's called Howard Hughes Power Paranoia in palace intrigue it has published by University of Nevada. Press very proud of it. It's the original edition. Came out in two thousand eight and what's funny about. That is as soon. As that book came out people came out of the woodwork. To tell me more stories about Howard Hughes and they wanted to relate new angles pursued in the first edition so as very lucky to be able to to do another addition. It's longer and it's it's updated aunt a couple of mistakes or fixed a really really liked this new edition so what it does is it. It covers almost every aspect abuses life And it's not just Las Vegas although that's a big part of it everything else as well and the mob museum in downtown Las Vegas of which you are. The vice president of exhibits and programs has quite an extensive Howard Hughes collection as well. Yes we recently redid the Dr Howard Hughes Exhibit Something that I've been wanting to do for a long time and so that's actually very new for people who haven't been to museum recently when they come again.

"He was in Las Vegas about four years total and so of course the desert end didn't do that well while he owned it in part because he had occupied all the good rooms right. You didn't own it. And He wants. He bought the desert in he. When he Kim to Las Vegas he had no intention of buying casinos but once he bought the desert in it. He decided that these were toys that he would really like to assemble so instructed. By May who to buy more casinos an anna buying the the sands and the Frontier and the silver slipper and castaways landmark. The also bought bought heralds club Up in Reno now. There's a story that I've heard about him. Th The reason behind his purchase of the silver slipper. The story that I had read was that he bought it because he didn't like where the sign was. The light of the sign kept him awake. Was that true so that I don't believe it's true. That story has been story has traveled far and wide though so the silver slipper had a very interesting sign. It was a slipper literally. It was a sign in the shape of a slipper rotated and there were lights on it and it annoyed a lot of people But there's no evidence that it annoyed Howard Hughes in one of the reasons for that was that he all of his windows of his sweet. Were all covered recovered. Blacked out the room. Gotcha so the likelihood that a light was bothering him is unlikely out. What did in fact happen is? May he was looking for hotels to buy and the silver slipper was available. That's that's kind of how that works The Not every hotel on the Strip was available for us to buy but the ones that were he he went after him. Now I WANNA talk about Bob. Mayhew just briefly here as well because part of the deal was I mean obviously to order to own a casino you have to have a gaming licence. Hughes never left his his room. There were people that worked for them. The never saw him or actually talked to him. How did he manage to get these gaming licenses was it was it Bob? Mayhew doing it for him doing it in his name. How did that managed to work? Yes it's A. It's a great story because You know a gaming licence Nevada as a privileged license so not everybody can have a gaming license. You have to go through a great deal. A great background check. They Wanna find out especially today. WanNa find out you know about your criminal. Pasts or eh anything fishy going on. What's more part of the longstanding policy has been that if you're going to request a gaming license you have to appear in person before the Gaming Control Board and the Nevada Gaming Commission and they WanNa see you. They WanNa see the genuine person that they want to build a question. And and this has been the practice for before and after Howard Hughes Doesn't matter how big of a character you are. Whether you're Steve Winner Sheldon Adelson or Kirk Kerkorian you had to go before the Gaming Control Board while used in WanNa do that. It was of course was very reclusive. By this time he was his health was was bad. He wasn't keeping up his appearances very well and he refused to go before the Gaming Control Board time it was a bit of a crisis because Nevada Howard Hughes to invest in Las Vegas Nevada. A really thought this was going to be a big deal for the state which was and the governor at the time was Pawlak Saul and Pawlak salt decided that Bob Mayhew the writing man for us could act in in Hughes's stat that he could appear before the Gaming Control Board as if he were Howard Hughes and it was an exception that was granted by the governor only for us and I think the only time that's ever been done in Nevada and something else to that kind of comes up with this with Howard Hughes buying up all of these casinos and and properties in Las Vegas in a way he was kind of responsible for pushing the mob out of Las Vegas as well wasn't he he did. And that's an argument that I make that. Not Every Hughes bargain for makes but I feel strongly about it because I've looked at each of these transactions hughes-made The purchases that he made on the Strip and in each case he was the mob was involved in other words. A mom had been involved with that casino when he was bought it. They were no longer in ownership position at that casino and so this was him nudging the mob out of his strip resorts now. Of course the mob continued to be involved in resource. It's on the Strip and up into the eighties. But this is the first thing he was dead as he physically bought these these casinos away from the mob but there was a more. There was a bigger impact of his arrival. And that was. He opened the door. For MAINSTREAM AMERICAN COMPANIES TO CONSIDER INVESTING IN LAS VEGAS. I mean before that one of the reasons. The MOM had such an influence eras. Because you know mainstream companies would not invest in LAS VEGAS SAY. Casinos would be bad for their image. It would be like invest. It would be almost like a criminal thing in their mind. Keep in mind at the time. Forty nine other states. Gambling was illegal. At that point that is completely reversed now in gambling is legal in one shape or form in forty eight of our states. But at the time you know gambling was still a sin right then. You didn't talk about it if you did it. And and so what Houston said here. I am I may well known while respected mainstream American entrepreneur and I'm investing casinos if it's okay for Howard Hughes maybe it's okay for other mainstream companies to get involved and and so. I believe he opened that door. And while you saw very quickly in the nineteen seventies is another a number of other hotel change the Hilton Chain Came in and invested here. Ramada invested here and other hotel companies as well as other mainstream companies a decided to Las Vegas was a was a smart investment so he was nudged the mob out in that way as well because these these other companies had a lot more money than the mob did and they had a lot less scrutiny and they were able to make a greater investments and and Jim more down here to grow Las Vegas and it wasn't just casinos and hotels that the US invested in in Las Vegas as well. I mean he bought land he bought real estate. He bought a TV station. He he did a lot of investing into into Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. He definitely did he He bought an airport. He bought a mining claims all over the state. I had an idea that would buy old mining claims and then kind of find a technology to Go back and mine additional gold and silver out of those minds. Here's a little ahead of his time because that actually is being done today. What they call microscopic goals right. So there's we have a a very big mining industry in Nevada today. Doing exactly what he wanted to do in the late sixties. But he didn't have the technology anyway. He he bought mining claims. He bought an airport. He bought land Anybody TV station. channel eight the CBS affiliate here. And there's an amazing story associated with that His wanted to control the movies that were played in the late night period on that. Tv Station via he was a guy who often would have long bouts of insomnia and sort of echoing back to that time when he was watching movies at Goldwyn Studio in La Hit led night. He would sit there and watch the late night movies from you. Know midnight to five. Am or whatever it was but they weren't playing the movies that he wanted them to play so in order for him to be able to control. What movies were played? He had to own the station so he ended up buying station from a man named Hank. Greenspun who was the local newspaper publisher who also on the TV station He's bought the station from him. And then every day. Hughes received a list from the station off the available movies for that night's late night movie session and he was done with go through the list and he remarked once he wanted to show. Sometimes he wouldn't like anything on the list would demand another list. There there was one infamous occasion where One Night Hughes Was watching the late night movies. And He fell asleep during one of the movies and when he woke up the movie was over so he had missed it so he called the station and he demanded that they replay that movie. So imagine. Imagine you're a regular person in Vegas and maybe we worked swing shift so you're up at night and you know this movie that you just watched you know it's on again. It's like they're showing it again. What they do that for well. It was because behind the scenes Howard. Here's a demanded that they do so. You always always took great liberties with the companies. The only you can do whatever he wanted. He was the owner unbelievable And of course to his his intelligence and his knowledge and his brilliance he took a lot of that and Made major contributions to the.

"And and his involvement in in aviation and and aircraft development and things like that I think going back to when he was a young boy. was was always interested in sort of engineering taking devices apart and putting back together that kind of a kid to see how they worked But movies came I. I think he wanted to make movies First and foremost as young adult and then He when he decided to make hells angels he that really Cemented his his desire to get involved with aviation and from really almost after two years. After the release of hells angels in Nineteen thirty-one. He came up with a couple more movies than any gave up on the movie industry for a while because he wanted to dedicate all his time to aviation and he wanted to wanted to design planes to fly them faster than they've ever been flown before and he succeeded in that area in the in the mid to late thirties. Howard Hughes was the the most accomplished aviator in the country a nine hundred thirty sixty ick fluid that he he set the air speed record and that same year he flew across the United States in record time two years later. Nineteen thirty eight if flu around the world in record time and so was interesting about. Here's I think why people remember him. So finally as an aviator is not only was he involved in the development of these airplanes But he flew them himself. You know he was the test pilot and he insisted upon that. So you know when they flew around the world you know. He was the pilot much of the time he had a crew. But you know he was the main guy making all the decisions and and flying for our effort hour after hour as they set the record for You know That it blew away the record really. I think they employ rhetoric by a couple of days and him as a test pilot. That didn't always work out all that well for him did it. Well you know. He was a reckless flyer. He was very good pilot agrees on he had to sort of natural talented desire to fly planes and he flew everything from a little tiny little playing up. Obviously the biggest player in the world. We'll get to that but he was a little reckless and part of that was he was flying experimental aircraft. So something that was it was coming right out of just being built right there in and he was the test pilot so he was putting himself inherently endanger flying a plane. That never been flown before you know so so there were accidents in nineteen forty three. He had a pretty serious accident at Lake. Mead south of Las Vegas in which he landed his plane on the water And crashed and one of his Wingtips hit the water. Then the plane started turning in two men end of dying from that accident and then three years later he was involved in a very serious accident in Los Angeles where his plane crashed into the Los Angeles County Club. And in that case he was by himself in the plane and he when he hit ground the plane was in flames and Hughes was badly hurt is he climbed out at cockpits. Somehow on his own in a a young marine who happened to hear the crash and was nearby ran up and and pulled him away from the wreckage Before he got before he burned to death he ended up going to the hospital And The doctors that evening. Who were telling the press. We don't think he's GonNa make. That's how seriously injuries were. And that's the crash. I think people are probably most familiar with because again coming back to the the movie the aviator that crash I think was was portrayed in that film wasn't it absolutely was and I think it was a a major turning point in his life as well Was you know he had broken bones? He had third degree burns. He had internal bleeding He was in very bad shape and the interesting thing about that. He was in the hospital for about six weeks and then he walked out of his own power after about six weeks. He really with all the injuries that he ad- he should have stayed in the hospital. Probably six funds honestly but he was Howard Hughes and he was stubborn and he walked out what he brought with him. Though were painkillers morphine. Codeine and and other Pills counteracted the ill effects of those. He ended up becoming. You know it wasn't long after that. He became addicted to painkillers. And this affected the rest of his life. I'm just sticking with With.

"Geoff. Schumacher powered Hughes. Is You know a subject that I have been focused on the late nineties. And there's so many stories. I'm not sure where to begin. Well let's start with his previous years. I mean a Lotta people at Hughes as this eccentric billionaire inventor a little bit crazy got some weird stories in some weird legends surrounding him one of the big things that he was involved with before he got to Las Vegas was the world of filmmaking. What piqued his interest in filmmaking. Why did he decide he wanted to get into movies? While I think the the original impetus for his interest in movies was his uncle. Rupert Rupert Hughes while has a very well known screenwriter and director. During the silent film era any lived in Hollywood and Howard would come as a youth Was his father and mother and they would visit Ankle Rupert and Rupert. At that time you know people have not heard Rupert use today but at the time he was very well known it was front page news any kind of celebrity scents and so You know visiting him going to movie sets I think definitely Create a an interest in the subject for in the idea of like doing something new and different In in Hollywood. I think that Willie was in Howard. Mind very early on so it wasn't just for the starlets that that came later and he did all right with movies right. I mean it wasn't like he made millions of dollars off of them or smash box office records at the time but Hells Angels was kind of his his really big six SASS correct. It was you know. He started in the silent film era and he Created a company called caddo productions and he made several movies and at the time he was Marva producer When it came to the movie hell's angels which is the World War One Flying epic You know he decided that he would be. He would direct and there are pros and cons to that on the pro side. He was the director of some of the still most amazing Combat Flying Scenes that I've ever been filmed and so. If you go back and watch hells angels. You will see those seeds are riveting and I think. They made a big impact of on the movie industry now. The downside as a director was that he was terrible with with people and with actors and with dialogue. And you know you're not really WANNA watch hells angels for the plot development. You know it's really all about about those those flying seats now for for Howard Hughes. What came first for him? Was it the the interest in movies or the interest in aviation or did the the two kind of kind of come together because of course I think a lot of people know Howard Hughes as Particularly after the DiCaprio movie as the aviator.

"Little over one hundred years. It's history is filled with some incredibly colorful characters. And this time around. I want to share the story of one of those people with you. Howard Hughes was a billionaire businessman movie producer aviator and philanthropist. He was also a bit eccentric to say the least. The stories about Howard Hughes are legendary everything from him urinating and Mason Jars and having foot long fingernails to locking himself in a movie studio screening room for months on end and buying a Las Vegas Hotel. Because he simply didn't want to leave. The stories have been around for so long and spun so many different directions that sometimes it's hard to separate fact from and that is where my guest for this episode of the podcast comes into play Geoff. Schumacher is the vice president of exhibits and programs for the mob museum in downtown Las Vegas last time. Jeff joined us all the way back in episode number twenty two. He was here to talk about Las Vegas mob. Another one adjusts fields of expertise is the subject of Howard Hughes and his time spent in Las Vegas when did you start spiraling into a world of Germaphobe and OCD? What prompted him to make the move to Las Vegas in the first place. Did he really by the silver slipper casino because the sign annoyed him. And what was the reasoning behind? Hughes's purchase of Las Vegas TV station. We get the answers to these questions. And many many more. Please enjoy my conversation with.

The History of Tiki Time

"Aw I mean you could be a little bit more cynical and say that don didn't just create this decor out of love it was also to cash in on on something that was very much in the cultural the other thing was that America's well as Europe was in the grips of the great depression everybody's bummed out and they have a little mini vacation in this beautifully appointed fo- Polynesian atmosphere with these amazing exotic cocktails so that's the story signed on the beachcombers atmosphere but what about those cocktails they didn't call it Tiki back then he called them rum rhapsodies there's a little bit pretentiously put an ancient rum in the French style just to make it more classy but here's my question rum is a Caribbean spirit right why not serve Polynesian rhapsodies instead the problem was there's no such thing as a polynesian cocktail I mean he had polynesian decor but what do you serve in the glass in the new Hebrides they did have a polynesian drank native ponies and drink called Kava what they would do they would sit in a circle around a big wooden ball and chew the psychoactive roots of the Kava plant gave you sort of a nice melody sociable high where they chew it spit it into a ball and they'd mix it with coconut milk and then they pass around you and you drank from it this was not the sort of thing that would go over very well in Hollywood and thirty four so no psychoactive saliva base drinks for done but he had another idea he'd also traveled to the Caribbean in those round the world adventures that he'd spent all his college funds John and that's where he had discovered the planners punch in Jamaica and the the dockery and Cuba the Queen's Park swizzle in Trinidad these are all based on rum so don new and he knew rum drinks but rum also had a practical advantage it was the closest spirit available to import Cuba's close by and willing to supply thirsty Americans it accuses right after prohibition and so rob was only spirit that had been readily available in the US while that distillers your non in operation and the term running Shannon must've runs the bar at the Caribbean themed Gladis in Brooklyn and she recently wrote a cocktail book called Tiki earn tropical cocktails and Shannon says that Rome was actually the cheapest to for bar operator costs was really important especially as you're talking about being in the Great Depression so ram fit the bill was expensive in costume much contracts at the whisky which is really expensive because there wasn't the really wasn't any left in this let me take a few years make more whiskey and agent the dawn has rum and he knows some of the basic Caribbean rum drinks but he doesn't just serve those Caribbean drinks he reinvent it's them and it was an entirely new way to serve and mix cocktail he basically took the three hundred year old planters punch poem I'm one of sour to sweet three of strong four of week sour being citrus sweeping sugar strong being rum and week being water ice and he squared or cubed he was like okay I could use lime juice as my sour but what if I mix lime and grapefruit in the same drink and how about instead of just Grizz my sweet what if I mix honey and maple syrup together or infused my sugar Syrup with some spices or pomegranate syrup so he dimensional is D- those two elements and also so what was really radical and brown breaking was that he did the same thing with the strong instead of just one rum he would say okay planners punch generally has dark Jamaican Punch one minute what if I added to that in the same glass a white Puerto Rican or Cuban room which has a more floral dryer kind of file the two rum's enhancing inform each other the Puerto Rican rum cuts the heavy molasses sweetness and density of the Jamaican and the Jamaican adds flavor and depth to the light dry Puerto Rican so anyway this was revolutionary nobody'd ever had drinks like this for nobody's ever made drinks like before that basic idea take a plant as punch and Cuban that's the recipe for what became Don's most famous drink the drink put him on the map the Zombie Don Lake to tell a tale of how he invented the Zombie a businessman came in and was so hung over and he had a sales meeting on made him a couple of these and he walked in like Zombie and nailed it but there's no way as perfect as this cocktail is that donges whipped up behind the bar in two seconds there was a lot of you know coaxing in finessing with these rooms and the dawn's makes in the Porno and the bidders but yet that's the legend that don created for it but yeah it was strong it was popular and there was a limit of two in the bar you can have more than two but even with the limit that didn't up the crowds from storming as place they were lines out the door it was a real see and be seen everyone that went into don the beachcomber was a WHO's who of Hollywood Howard Hughes in Grant Joan Crawford Clark Gable Don's little bar was a huge success so almost immediately there were copycats people started putting up their own version of a Polynesian Paradise all over la remember Americans were already obsessed with the South Seas but the whole vibe struck a particular chord in California first of all Californians of course really embrace surfing in this period which is a Hawaiian Sport and you know there's also a kind of a belief in a sort of shared attitude and aesthetic sensibility right so Californians very much the themselves as you know more modern and more relaxed than the rest of the United States are certainly more so than the kind of Stodgy East Coast Sara Miller Davenport is a historian at the University of Sheffield and she just wrote a book called a Gateway State Hawaii and the cultural transformation of American Empire Californians just vibe at aloha spirit so within a couple of years they were copycat bars all across the state most of them are just knockoffs and nothing to write home about but Jeff Ameri told us one of those copycat bars was really the equal of done the beachcombers the only restaurant tour who went Tiki or went four Polynesian in the nineteen thirties who could rival Don's palette and his skill was a guy named Victor Berge on He was the French Canadian son of a waiter in Oakland and he was in San Francisco he had his own little place there called Hinky Dink's was famous for a Frankenstein you get frank and a Stein for ten cents and he thinks was basically just a little barbecue shack with a Alaskan I rapper theme you know snow shoes and taxidermy on the walls in nineteen thirty seven he took a vacation to Hollywood and discovered on the beachcombers and like everybody else he he waited on line for ninety minutes to get into the bar he saw the popularity of what was happening at Don the beachcomber and try to recreate that up in his place and he turns and hangings into Trey Vicks and he turned himself from Victor Berge Ron into trader Vic Bergeron chair Vic as he was now known he was super savvy any seems to have had a great pallet everyone else was just copying done but trader vic actually used new spirits and juices and invented his own drinks and the food in his restaurants was revolutionary for mid-century. US I mean he introduced on elements of east Indian Malaysian Jap in these and other cuisines on his menu which was unheard of at the time like Donna beachcombers and all these other taking place just serve basic cantonese Chinese food is cheap the Chinese cook and then that would be that but vic pioneered what he called international cuisine and it he did it very very well to the point where he had white tableclo- fine dining restaurants multicourse meals of his own invention vic was also something of a showman he had a wooden leg from from his childhood illness but he would invite people to stick a fork in it and then he would tell them that he lost it to a shark on the high-seas but don the beachcomber and trader vic or soon franchising around the country you WanNa Polynesian themed night out on the Down in Chicago complete with dancing ladies and tropical drinks and an expensive dinner you got it that could've gotten old but then World War Two happens and things get even worse and more and more people flocked picky bars and then Gi's come back from the actual South Pacific with a renewed interest and all that and in the nineteen fifties everything combines you have a booming postwar many facturing economy you have all these vets coming back writing and making movies about their experiences and Tiki just goes into overdrive and it's perfectly suited for the Eisenhower era suburban culture as well which is kind of stifling and moralistic but you can make a little escape into the Pagan South seas in your local Tiki Bar International level was still a little too expensive for regular people in the nineteen fifties but increasingly a middle class couple could treat themselves to a nice night out and get away from it all that way the musical South Pacific came out in nineteen forty nine does this mean I finally finally get to play a little bit of something that booth you Nikki and my partner Tim like to make fun of me about what might deep and abiding love of musical theatre dear God there's no stopping you is there nope Pacific here we come some and Charlie the you may see a stranger thanks for indulging me going to let you make a habit of it okay see anyway the point is Tiki just kept getting more and more popular things continue to grow a pace in the nineteen sixties when you see really the height of Fo- Polynesian Restaurant Chic nece sort of Tiki chic but these were not low end beach bars or Jimmy Buffet Style replaces most of them like trader Vic's on the beachcomber and Stephen Crane's kon-tiki chain were high end luxury restaurants and they were event dining in people would save up and go out on a Friday night in their best clothes to these places even Disney got in on the tiki craze with its very own enchanted tiki room it opened in eighteen sixty three and drilled it soundtrack into the brains of America and even in the nineteen sixties international travel was still expensive and so Sarah says are white middle class Americans these tiki bars and restaurants allowed them to feel cosmopolitan going to Tiki bars right becomes in order these Polynesian restaurants becomes a way to sort of from any white people right to express your kind of embrace of foreign cultures in this moment and speaking of embrace Tiki bars and this whole American love affair with Bo Polynesian everything by the nineteen sixties it's not just about being open minded did it's about being sexy which is a period where more broadly a loosening of some of these sexual norms and I think there's something very appealing to women or at least in the way that these various cookbooks and magazines portray it for women kind of cross these racial boundaries right to kind of play act as a kind of Polynesian princess white middle class women went to Tiki bars and held back yard luos and dressed in moves and eight that FO- Polynesian Pan Asian cuisine the way it's described as often as a way of the Luau is a chance to kind of loosen up it's a chance to play act as as a Polynesian woman right and of course the stereotype of Polynesian women is there you know much more overtly sexual than white

Diet drugs could halt mosquitoes' blood-sucking behavior, study says

"But one lab at the university Rockefeller had another idea. What have we just could convince female mosquitoes, the problematic ones that they're just not hungry enough to bite us in the first place? What if we can put them on a diet here to talk about this more is Dr Leslie Vassall, professor of neurobiology at the Rockefeller University. And a Howard Hughes Medical institute investigator in New York, New York, also welcome to science Friday. Thanks for being here. Thanks. I'm so excited. So why don't you start by telling us how often female mosquitoes actually bite because it feels like the same? Mosquito comes back. Bites me all the time. So first of all they love us. They have to fill up on your blood and as soon as they failed up and doubled their body weight. They actually will go into seclusion for four days. So the female that's just fitting you you won't see her again for the next four days. Okay. So they bite and they go away for a while. Why are they so attracted us in the first place, you you, you say they they like feasting on our blood y. They just love how we smell. So that the the mosquitoes that spread these diseases are they have specialized on human. So they're super sensitive to our body odor. Every time we exhale we excite them with our carbon dioxide in our brass they loved it were warm-blooded, but basically animals specialize on humans, and that's why they're so dangerous in spreading these diseases among humans, so you decided to see how they would react to human diet drugs. Explain why. Well, we were really struck by this. Phenomenon that they will lose her appetite for four days after taking a blood meal. So our idea was how can we get them to do that without feeding on blood? And so we know a little bit about how appetite works across the tree of life. And so one day we thought why don't we just got some diet drugs and see if we can disrupt the appetite of mosquitoes and that worked immediately this was five years ago and just over the course of the week we were able to turn off mosquito attraction to humans just with a little dose of this drug. Well, so it really worked very quickly. It did. And then it took a five years to figure out how how it was working. And then how how to get drugs that were specific just to insects and not and not people. So why drugs that are specific to insects and not people if if it works to give them human die drugs wanna just feed them human diet drugs. Well, I mean, I think people always worry if you have a bunch of mosquitoes flying around with with drugs that are nonspecific it would it would just be more elegant strategy to get to get drugs that really are just working really effectively on things like let's say ticks and malaria, mosquitoes and mosquito so just want we wanted to to make it the most selective possible drug in. So how did you make the selection? How did you find something that works specifically the mosquito brain? So this was a huge looking for a needle in a haystack exercise. So my whole stuck lower divall looked individually at two hundred sixty five thousand compounds and of though she found six that actually works on a ski. Oh, and those drums do not work on the human version of of the same targets so five years later, we we finally made it to the end of the journey. Do what do we know about how mosquitoes feel hunger? You say that when they have a blood meal they go away for a couple of days. Do we know anything about how they actually experience hunger? So it's it's this interplay between their need for protein. So they need blood to be able to get protein to produce eggs. And so we don't exactly know what's happening in their brains. But there's something about taking in this huge protein meal that leashes a huge series of physiological events that are really understood where the the the basically, the gut communicates to the brain. I am full. And so we think that our drugs hijack that conversation between what God and the brain. And and that's why are drugs are turning off appetite. So you got these drugs, they work they're turning off the appetite is the idea that this would eventually kill the mosquito that they would die of hunger or you just trying to deprive them of that one house the supposed to work. So our jobs are not forever. So we don't kill appetite forever. So they lasts for two or three days. And then when the drugs wear off they will go back and either come back to our traps and drink more. Of our drug or they will find you invite you. But where we think this is an innovative way to control disease vectors is that anytime you have a mosquito take two or three days from biting. That's some number of people who are not going to be bitten by infected mosquitoes. So we don't these drugs are not gonna kill mosquitoes. They're not gonna radical mosquitoes. They will just take a population that will take a break from biting people. You mentioned having them come back to to get more of this stuff. How are you dispersing this? How would this work is a practical solution getting this diet drug to mosquitoes? That's the really key question. So we need them to drink. It just like when you take pills you need to take it into your mouth. We need the mosquitoes to drink it. And so the plan is working off of existing technology to lure mosquitoes to traps us every day to to figure out what the epidemiology of infected mosquitoes as and we lured them in and then waiting for them. There is a Cup of our drug mixed into. This elixir that they love to drink which is basically salty water with ATP. And so that the land on the trap. They love the taste of that stuff. And they'll take the drug, and then they will go away for two or three days and things that they're full of blood. We're talking about mosquito science here. And I know Dr Voss all the others have been looking at ways to just eradicate mosquitoes altogether. To edit them out of existence or find ways to just get rid of the species do wanna just try that why don't you try to get rid of mosquitos altogether? What do you see is the consequence there? So the whole community the whole mosquito communities working really hard on lots of ideas to deal with this very old and very complicated problem, and the ratification team is doing amazing work. I think that it will be difficult to eradicate all of the different species that are spreading diseases. Those approaches will have an impact what I'm a believer in integrating multiple different approaches. So vaccines team affair? Ps and repellents and then our strategy of behavioral appetite control. So I always get a little bit worried about a radical getting species on earth because we do have a web of life. And and I don't know what will happen if we did succeed in killing all mosquitos. I'd rather not do the experiments. Have you have you thought a lot about the unintended consequences of the work that you're doing now putting them on a diet and having the not feed the same way, what are the potential consequences there? So we don't know what it's a good point. We don't know about the potential consequences are, but again, we're not killing them. It's a temporary effect. So it may have some small local effects on populations. But the main benefit is that there will be fewer female mosquitoes flying around and biting people. What are the things we need to be thinking about to really solve the mosquito disease problem, not just mosquitoes, but all the diseases they carry mean, what are the what are the public health needs here in the United States and elsewhere around the world that we might need to we need to avail ourselves. To help to solve this. Big problem. And it is a huge huge problem as long as there's been humans. There's there's been mosquitoes spreading diseases to them. And so, you know, there's a lot of areas the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the national institutes of health are putting huge amounts of money into making vaccines improving repellents bednets, the GMO approach our behavioral control, all of these different technologies. Need to be brought to bear. Because we have not the mosquito wins every time the mosquito keeps winning and so I don't think that there's any one approach that will put humans into a win earlier. I talked about deep turning seventy five this year. This is thought of as a repellent. What do we know about how these repellents actually work a mosquitoes? What's remarkable is that scientists cannot agree on how repellents work? So you have in your day to day experience. You know, that deep would off works really, well, so insect repellents work incredibly, well, there's still a lot of discussion in scientific circles about how they work and the work from my lab, and many others is trying to figure out how does it work. And then once we know how it works. We could perhaps improve on it and come up with repellents that are longer lasting and not as nasty to put on the skin. But believe it or not it's still a huge scientific controversy seventy five years later while so seventy five years, we know that it works. But we don't know exactly why works. I can only imagine that if you rebel to crack that code. You might be able to come up with a repellent that really really works. That is the dream exactly. That is the dream. And it's been, you know, science sometimes it's tricky this has been a long it's been a long relative figure out how it works and many labs. They're still working on it. So there's repelling mosquitoes were still trying to solve a seventy five year long. Mystery about that, there's you know, trying to a radical them something that obviously has its own unintended consequences, potentially. Are there? Other ideas about manipulating mosquito behavior other than what we've been talking about, you know, trying to put them on a diet. How else might we manipulate the way they just they live in go feed? You know, the the GMO approach can be used to to kill mosquitoes. There's also people thinking about GMO purchased just to change the behavior of the mosquitoes like a science fiction cool idea could remake mosquitoes that lose interest in people and really specialize on on animals that that would be another way of using modern crisper technology to to change mosquito behavior. But again, these are these are such incredibly complicated public health problems that that anybody that has an idea that would be willing to try it out. I think we would be all ears. Some of the mosquito borne illnesses. We're talking about the cause these gigantic public health problems like malaria, are they more difficult to prevent it manage than things like the flu. Such a complicated question. I mean because all of these diseases are so different all of these different areas. People are trying to raise vaccines and effective vaccine exists for yellow fever and yellow fever is very rarely seen. So I think it depends on on which critter you're talking about malaria. It's been extremely difficult in every way to to conquer because it's been very difficult to get a vaccine. But but each of these diseases has its own unique problems and flew the problem and all of the mosquito diseases are a big problem, but we've we've gotten rid of malaria in the United States. It can be done. It can be done, and that was a huge coordinated public health effort that only succeeded in nineteen sixty a lot of people think that malaria is not relevant to the US but through most of the twentieth century people in the southern US were being sick and by malaria. So it can't be done you need to have a you need to invest heavily in in in public health infrastructure. And and many other infrastructure issues. But we are a high resource country. So it's it's much easier to pull off in a hurry source country. Well, thank you for keeping on this. Mosquito beat for us, Dr Leslie Vassall, professor of neurobiology at the Rockefeller University here in New York City. Thank you so much.

Dragonflies And The Predicting Brain

"Done. Have you ever watched? Dragonflies hunt years have y'all they wait on a piece of vegetation or in mid air and to an insect flies past when one does zoomed action snatching prey outta mayor and devouring it intercepting insect in mid air as hard but dragonflies succeed ninety five percent of the time by comparison, a solitary lions attempts to catch prey succeed. Only about a quarter of the time. Dragonflies most have quick reflexes hand. Good is. Yes, but research conducted by scientists at the Howard Hughes Medical institute found that their hunting skills involves something more the scientists made high speed videos of dragonflies as they exercise their hunting skills in the lab, they found that as the animals approach their prey from below. They turn their heads to keep the prey fixed in their visual field. They corrected for the movements of their body. And the praise trajectory with almost zero delay Royal vents impossible, it takes more than five milliseconds for insect muscles to even begin to contract for the Dragonfly to respond with zero delayed need to be able to predict in advance. What head movement was needed? That's right time does nonsense making the prediction would involve trigonometry. Dragonflies? Don't know trigonometry countdown. Dine dragonflies Dono trigonometry. But the research shows that their brains are organized to perform the needed computations. Your rain is to the human brain can predict the consequences of your movements in the same way, the Dragonfly findings show that this ability is widespread and that all brains might be predicting machines.

Researchers capture high-resolution image of a complete fruit fly brain

"In this week's health news, scientists at issue is jamilla research campus have taken detailed pictures of the entire brain of an adult female fruit fly using what they're calling transmission electron microscopy to high-speed electron. Microscopes took seven thousand brain slices over twenty one million images for a team of scientists at the Howard Hughes, Medical institute's genetic research campus in Ashburn, Virginia, these numbers add up to a technical. I a high resolution digital snapshot of the adult fruit fly brain researchers can now trace the path of anyone neurone to any other neuron throughout the entire brain. The entire fly brain has never been image before this resolution that lets you see connections between neurons that detail is key for mapping out the brain circuitry, the precise webs of. Neural connections that underpinned specific fly behaviors. The genetics teams data offers a new tool for scientists racing to map these connections, and in a memory center of the brain, the data also revealed a new cell type and other surprises. Fruit flies may be best known for buzzing around right bananas, but these tiny little insects are surprisingly sophisticated. They can learn and remember, they know which places are safe and dangerous. They have elaborate sequences of courtship and grooming the fruit fly brain, roughly the size of a poppy seed contains about one hundred thousand neurons. Humans have one hundred billion, each neurons branches into a starburst of fine, wires that touch the wires of other neurons. Neurons. Talk to one another through these touch points or synapses forming a dense mesh of communication circuits. Scientists can view these wires and synapses with an imaging technique called serial section transmission electron microscopy. I, they infuse the fly's brain with a cocktail of heavy metals, these medals pack into cell membranes and synapses ultimately marking the outlines of each neuron and its connections. Then the researchers hit slices of the brain with a beam of electrons which passes through everything except for the metal loading parts. The resulting images exposed the brains once hidden nooks and crannies and eventually will give us the insight to correct even more health problems that plague the human race.
