"All right. Dr kelly matsunaga thank you so much. For coming on the podcast. It's an honor to have you here. And i'm really excited to talk to you today. But first let's start off by telling everyone a little bit about who you are and what it is. You do all right. Thanks for having on the podcast. My name is as you just said. Kelly matsunaga currently an assistant professor in ecology and evolutionary biology at the university of kansas. And i'm also curator of paleo body in the biodiversity institute which is sort of the collection of natural history museums Here at ku. That's really exciting. Paleo botany to me. Is i have to live vicariously through people like you. Because it's something that was has always interested me but i want a different path with my career. So i'm really excited to pick your brain about this but one of the things that always interests me is how you came to paleo botany in the first place where you a fossil kid a plant kid. Where did the combination of the two really find their way into a fruitful career for you. Yeah so i I would say that. I came to paleo botany through a lot of sort of happy accidents home. I was not a paleo kid. Or a plant kid numb. I got interested in plants when i was in college. I was not a science major. But we all had to take intro. Some kind of intro. Biology works as a general education requirement. And so i took introductory botany in. That's what really got me interested in plants Specifically the the whole evolutionary story of plants that the professor that taught the courses frank shaughnessy at humboldt state university. Who was able to sort of weave through the course of the class.
California's iconic redwoods threatened by climate change
"Now Rangers and conservationists are developing plans to better protect them at a that the world's tallest trees May not survive future places that are almost certain to come. It's a story by Jim Carlton reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Jim Take us through this. So Gordon the California redwoods are famous for being fire resistant when you walked through mural Woods, Humboldt State Park. You know these places with the giant redwoods. You can see the burn marks from fires of, you know. Hundreds of years ago. The big called canals. Oh, and the big question is, Can the redwoods survive? Today's mega fires? Firestorms? These are gigantic fires that they've never really seen before. They're fueled by the climate change. Basically, that means it's really dry. There's congested force conditions, etcetera. And so it's really a big question Whether these redwoods can Take a and we've We're getting some of our first big test now. Yeah, All right. So there's been, uh, you could describe it better but of greater frequency of Maura. Intense fires. In addition to the number of fires, I guess right in these trees have done okay, but there is concern. Right? Well, we just kind of a little bit of background. I mean of the top 20 most destructive fires and California recorded history like 17 have happened in the last 10 to 15 years. Um and we just had, you know the paradise Fire, you know, keep the camp fire that killed anybody people, So they're bigger. They're deadlier, more destructive and they're starting to hit the redwoods. Now they're only the redwoods are protected by fog along the coast. From about the big Sur coast of central California to southern Oregon. And there is a pretty wet forest. And so they know they don't get a lot of fire historically would be a few. You know, a small fire. Every few decades on, it would kind of burnout. Ah, lot of the brush and kind of leave the big crease alone. But that's what's changing. Now speak with Jim Carlton reporter at The Wall Street Journal. His pieces called California's plan to save its 1000 year old redwoods from wildfires. So
Addressing the Digital Gap During the Pandemic
"Either this is alan shark and welcome to another episode of shark bites. This is the first episode in the year. Twenty twenty one so hopefully you had a happy new year and looking forward to a much better year than perhaps we had last year. As you know the podcast delves into europe. Cio's and other tech leaders throughout local government to some extent state government and today. We are very fortunate. Have john walton. John is a chief information officer of the county of san mateo california. I've known him for over a decade and he is getting all these awards and whatnot and it seemed like this is an appropriate time to really have a chat into sheer the discussion with you. John brings over twenty five years of experience in the fields of information. Technology has a diverse background in both public and private sectors sending innovative technology standards providing visionary leadership for numerous organizations each receive tons of awards and most recently state tech recognized him as one of the thirty people to watch in the year. Twenty twenty twenty-eight came out towards the year so hopefully it'll make the list again in twenty twenty one but he sent a lot of things that hopefully we'll get into that for example. I believe he'd been on school board. You have been a race car driver so you have a lot of interest so john. Welcome thank you on. It's great to be here. I really enjoy having the opportunity to talk with you. Ve enjoyed our friendship and partnership over the years and really excited for twenty twenty one. Yeah it's got to be better than last year. Such such an anomaly. Such a different year. It can only get better so john. I always ask when we begin these discussions. I always believe that. Very few of us wake up in high school or even college and say when i grow up and when i go into the adult workforce i want to be a chief information officer so i'm always curious to know. How did you get to where you are. You've had a really great career and is far from over so if you would you've had an interesting journey so let's spend a couple of minutes talking about. How did you get to the county san mateo allen. Yeah that's That's a great question and probably the most complex question. You're going to ask me today. So i will. I will try to keep it to a couple of minutes. It was a long winding road to end up. Were ended up i. I grew up in. A family of there was a military family. My dad was missile defense and so we moved a lot as you can imagine and my dad used to like to say we lived in places where people didn't care where he blew things up so those rather rural and isolated and i wasn't into computers at all matter of fact i'm of an age where computers were still a relatively new thing so my exposure to computers were really through. My dad was a bit of what we call order now. Every time they would demo out a test site he He felt terrible about all the expensive computer equipment that was getting thrown away. Pdp lebanon's and things like that so he would haul them home in his pickup truck. And i grew up with garage. Full of old mainframe computers wang's ibm's and so those were my toys. My friends growing up but to be honest they didn't really interest me I really love nature and so When i teach classes at san francisco state and things like that mba students. I always tell them to become a cio. The first thing you do is you go to humboldt state university and get a degree in natural resource science. because that's where every good cio starts with a degree in natural resources. And and that's really how i got started i. I really wanted to be a researcher. A scientist i wanted to study nature and the environment and at that time The college was implementing backs computer systems. That was a new thing and it turned out that i wasn't really great at school. I i guess you would probably call it. Add now. but i don't do well sitting in classes listening but turns out a really good at setting up. Faxes for all the computer. Labs all the professors would give me extra credit to make up for my poor test scores by going in and configuring all the computers in the labs and so that would really help. My career started i. I did get a bachelor's degree in science. I enjoyed that but immediately after college. I started setting up. Computer systems. for counties and cities and private industry and it just went from there and in those days. It was really what you did. You just sort of went from project to project and it was word of mouth and if you knew anything about computers that kind of puts you a leg up on the competition so while up here i am now i must cio the great county here in california You know appreciative of all the recognition. Our county gets think it's really a reflection to the hard work. The staff here does and the leadership of the county the supervisors in the city manager. I think i am probably the best easiest. Cio job in california. They they make things very easy for me. I met one of your deputies at a recent meeting in there. You do have a very talented staff so tell us. I did read somewhere about this racing car thing so tell me a little bit about that. Well yes so. That's like. I said the the technology thing wasn't really a passion of mind when i was young and my dad is a hobby was an amateur stockcar razor so i grew up around tracks and engineers. It turns out you know. He was an engineer. Engineers love to build things and so he looked to build cars and fix cars so i grew up working on cars and building cars and race cars and have always been around those. And so that's always been my hobby. As a matter of fact the mechanic paid my way through college. Because i had an aptitude for that. And it's really just built from there. I think from my childhood you know as a as an executive technology really. I spend most of my time. Unfortunately you know in meetings in office buildings working on spreadsheets. Power plants you know. It's not as glamorous as probably some people think it is to be a cio for me at least and kind of tactile this rule I built my own race cars. I tune them my drive them on the track. It's really release for me. And all the things i do probably things. It helps me too many of us in this world. Nowadays we all try to multitask too much when meetings and checking email and texting. And i will say if you ever need to focus. There's nothing like being racetrack. One hundred thirty miles an hour going into a turn to cause you to focus and not worry about. Who's texting you calling you on the phone. So i still love it. I've sold most of my cars now. I have to left. And i still do it when i have the time. But it's it's less and less these days. Covert has kept us very busy. And i have two young sons that i try to spend as much time with is like can so until they get interested in racing than i probably won't spend as much time at the track is i have in the past

The Peter Principle
"The patron saint of hiring nihilism without question was the author and educator Lawrence Peter. All of us in the hiring community worship at his feet. When I was a boy I, used to leave my parents and believe my teachers can have respect for your elders and betters. The men upstairs knew what they were doing. That's Peter. He was a Canadian as a my of course and I don't know if you remember from the lottery episode but Adam Cronk right went to university in Canada. The nihilists strain runs deep in the land of the frozen prairie. Anyway Lawrence, Peter was a great first famous for saying things like the noblest of dogs is the hot dog. It feeds the hand that bite did. He was also deeply involved something called the Kinetic Sculpture Race in Humboldt County California, which is really hard to explain except to say that it's kind of like the triathlon of the art world involving sculptures on wheels that are required to perform certain feats. Peter Famously proposed a special prize called the Golden Dinosaur Award to be given to the first machine to break down immediately after the start. which if you knew Lawrence Peter, you would recognize as being very lawrence. Peter. Because his great professional obsession was with incompetence. He had a CONNOISSEUR'S I for it. And as looked around me. I. Saw a sign on the door that said emergency exit authorized personnel. Only I, wondered who'd written But then Later I saw another sign and said emergency exit. Not to be used under any circumstances learns Peter. Formulated one of the most famous laws in. Social. Science. He called it the Peter Principle. The Peter Principle states very simply than in any hierarchy and employ tends to rise to the level of incompetence that's where he stays. People get promoted based on a prediction about their ability to handle the next job on the hierarchy. And they keep rising until the prediction is wrong. You see in any organization. Where competence is essentially eligibility for promotion and incompetence is a bar to promotion. Wherever, those rules apply people were rise to the level of incompetence and tend to stay there. Lawrence Peter. Wrote a book called Peter Principle in nine, hundred, sixty nine and it is delightful exactly in a Lawrence Peter sort of way like he has a whole riff on the special case of someone who is incompetent per promoted anyway kicked upstairs a move he calls progressive sublimating. Or the case when an incompetent person is moved out of the way but given a long job title as compensation. Peter Call that a lateral arabesque. No chances are you've heard of the Peter Principle I'm guessing as a kind of joke ha ha that's why my boss is so bad. But it's not a joke. Allow me to direct you to the work of a fellow member of the Hiring Nyas Club on Benson economist at the University of Minnesota. While he was doing his doctorate mit he got bitten by the Peter Principle bug. I started to go to sales management conferences. And they found that there is this adage that the best salesperson doesn't necessarily make the best manager. but then people would laugh and say, but we do it anyway. And I wanted to find out why the great advantage of using salespeople debilitate. The Peter Principle Benson realizes is that you can measure performance really easily is not like assessing the performance of engineers or politicians. No, it's super straightforward. You just look at how many sales salesperson is made and it's also easy to measure good sales manager is you just add up the sales of the salespeople, the manager managing. So Allen Benson finds a tech company that sells one of those software platforms for sales organizations, kind of like salesforce dot com and gets access to all of their customers data four, hundred firms hundred thousand salespeople. The first thing he finds is a confirmation of the famous eighty twenty rule that twenty percent of the sales people are responsible for eighty percent of the sales across the board. It's not that we don't know who's a good salesperson we definitely know. People are really good. Second thing he finds those superstars get rewarded. What we found in the data look that type salespeople are far far more likely to be promoted into sales management than people who are outside of that top twenty percent who aren't the best person on on the team. Of course, the makes sense you give the stars promotion. That's what everyone does. Okay. Now it gets interesting one happens when those stars take over as manager. Fair sales, people, themselves people who they managed. Their performances becomes worse under them than it was under their prior managers. The Stars get promoted in their terrible managers. How terrible really terrible. Benson looked at an alternate promotion scenario where companies decide to promote not stars but the sales people who are good at collaborating. Nice friendly people who work well with others and teams managed by the friendly people do thirty percent better than the teams managed by the superstars. Thirty percent is huge. You. Might say what does this have to do with nihilism? This is just an argument promoting friendly people over superstars does not I rolling or even shrugging? Well I haven't told you about Bentsen's last finding. Because Benson found a fatal flaw in the ultimate promoting scenario. The one that seems to work thirty percent better, which is this. If you promote the friendly sales people over the top salespeople then the top sales people get upset. So upset that their performance suffers and they aren't so top anymore. The, whole thing is so magnificently perverse, isn't it? All your sales come from the same small group of people who expect to be promoted as a reward for their excellence. But if you promote them out of sales, which you get returned is a lousy manager and if you don't promote them. And you pass them over in favor of some warm and fuzzy into personal wuss. The top performers will pout and stop trying. So what are you supposed to do? You could pay the superstars more and more and give them fancier titles in the maneuver Lawrence Peter called the Lateral Arabesque But you still insulted them by passing them over for the friendly was. Another idea that some Peter principle theorists have floated his lotteries they end up where Adam cronkite ended up put everyone's name and a hat and promote the winter I mean, why not? But then why have a boss at all? No concept of boss is it a boss knows more than the people that bossing? There's even a school of thought in the Upper Reaches Peter Principle world at the best solution is just to man up forget everything else and deliberately promote the incompetent because this way you won't lose one of your superstars by them into a lousy manager. You'll just transfer an incompetent person from their present position of incompetence to another position of incompetence up stairs somewhere where they will occupy a position which according to Peter Principle was bound to be occupied by an incompetent person sooner or later anyway. Did you follow that? Peter principle theorizing gets very Meta ferry quickly. which. Is Why most people would rather console themselves with a soothing banalities of Merit and prediction and hierarchy? Only. A select few. Are Willing to face the truth. And who are those brave and lonely heretics? The nihilists. People like me. Who Look at the world with a cold and unflinching eye and say Under the circumstances, why bother to learn the first thing about any new perspective job candidate? and.

Voices from the Holocaust with Leon Bass
"Leon Bass was born in Philadelphia on January twenty. Third Nineteen, twenty, five, the fourth of six children. His parents were born in South Carolina in the eighteen nineties at the beginning of the Jim Crow era. Just after the first World War they joined the Great African American Migration North they settled in Philadelphia with the hope of making a better life for themselves and their children. As a young man during World War Two Leon volunteered to serve in the United States army. In, April, nineteen, forty, five, he, and four others from his unit arrived at the Humboldt, concentration camp in Weimar Germany just one day after it was liberated. Forty three years later on March Sixteenth Nineteen eighty-eight Leon is sitting in a studio in union new. Jersey. He's dressed in a plaid, Brown and based Sport Code. White Shirt and striped tie. He wears aviator, glasses and sports trim black moustache. Leon's interviewers are Bernard Weinstein and mark lender. Leeann recalls the racial discrimination. He experienced as a child in Philadelphia. I went to the school. WHERE THEY! Always taught us. To Care and love each other, but also have love of country. We pledge allegiance to the flag every day, just like every other young person in the city of Philadelphia do. And we said with liberty and justice for all. Just like everyone else only to go out and find as we matured. That was not so as I found out when I went to the theater. When I bought my ticket I was directed to the balcony. It was mandated that I go there. Because I wasn't good enough to go down on the main floor. It's beginning to get a little in the site to the society and how the Society viewed me. A person of color. And we. Always went to the park. And I recall how I look through that wire fence at this large swimming pool. Which I knew, I could never use I would never be admitted. because. The society was saying loud and clear to me. That I wasn't good enough. Those are the kind of things to. Make. You feel bad. I finished school in Nineteen forty, three. I went out and I I volunteered. And when I went down to the induction center. Institutional racism smacked me right in the face. because. Sergeant was there and. He told me go one. When I went through the door, and he told my wife go another way, and so I went into an all black unit safer, the officers they will white. When you enlisted, you realize the military was segregated. You. Don't even think about those things until it hits you in the face. And of course, the thing that made it more real more painful was the fact that they send US south. They send us right into the heart of the place where people would. would. Be a confrontation. We went to camp. Wheeler Georgia for Infantry Basic Training And we spent quite a time in Mississippi right in camp McCain. We spent almost a year there. and. We went on maneuvers into Texas Louisiana. And we came back to little. Rock Arkansas. Now all these places I was given the message. of WHO and what I was as far as the society was concerned. And it was really frustrating to think that you have made a commitment to your country and yet your country is saying to you. All Right? You're okay, but only so far. I went into Macon Georgia. Attempted to get a drink of water while I was in their simple thing like a drink of water. Because, you walk around the town Ucla Fountain drink i. went to drink at. Someone grabbed me and say boy. You don't drink here. Pointed to the sign, which said White. And directed me to. Another sign was said colored. Where was another fountain and you of course in uniform at the time happened? Soldier like all the other lack soldiers we will all experiencing. This was ear perception, though that the black troops generally though. fully understood the fact that. While the rhetoric of the war against Nazi racism, and so forth will was fine. In practice, the country was doing something entirely different. It was as though you were just a fringed. Country had was to personalities Channel One way. We may make wonderful announcements. You know we we've talked about engineer. Christian ethics and We're going to make the world a better place for democracy and all that other jazz, but then when you cut down to a real thing and you start seeing the way they operate. Things we're not. And so I? Began to be an angry, frustrated, young black soldier. After my experiences. I really did not want to be. On A. Specially after. Having to stand on a bus. When there were no seats at the back, having to stand up for hundred miles and looking at empty seats. Didn't endear me. To to my country. Couldn't eat in a restaurant. Had to go around the back. Knock on the door to get food. And I'm in a uniform I. And I. Prisoners of war from Germany. Being allowed to go in a restaurant and sit down to eat, and I was not entitled to for the same opportunity.

"Thriving in the New Normal"
"Many of us are feeling a distance between our art in our daily lives. In my case for example. I'm not spending time with other photographers this week. I should be in the Humboldt redwoods with a bunch of you taking pictures and looking at them and talking about technique and all that good stuff. I'm not. I'm here in Santa Rosa. I'm not traveling. I'm not being hired to take pictures you know. It's really a different situation now. Your particular variables might be a bit different than mine. But I bet you're having many at the same feelings. So what do we do? What do we do about this brand off? The top of my head of choices. We have so first of all we could you know just roll over and die and I don't mean I don't mean physically die. I mean artistically die. Just say you know what That was fun now. It's over. This is the new world and a well as you may have figured out by now. That is not the path that I'm taking nor the one that I'm recommending okay. Here's what I think. We should look for the opportunities within the situation. Tried to capitalize on them and then move forward to. Here's the cool thing. Whatever we do now while we're constrained physically we're not constrained artistically. I'll get to that in a minute. We're not constraints so much artistically as we are physically physical of all the limitations I think is easiest to overcome. Unless you're like locked in a box which were not. It's the easiest overcome I I would take it any day over mental imitation emotional limitation spiritual limitation. I'll take you know being sort of trapped in my studio or trapped in my house over those other constraints so I have Internet. I have my tools at the moment. I have food on the table as a moment. The mortgage is paid. I don't know about next month but we'll deal with next month when it gets here. So what I'm thinking is all right. Let's take a look at five ideas that we could play with during this time of physical limitation in. See what we can come up with. Because here's what happens if we come up with something now then if the world starts to come back to some other kind of normal that involves US actually being able to hang out with each other or go somewhere on an airplane or do a number of things like that then we already know how to do that and then we have whatever we've accomplished during this time and then we'll have both and then what if we can intermingle both into something completely new all right. You see where I'm going here. Let's take a look at some of these things that we can do during this time of internment right number one more self assignments because just because we don't have the physical freedom that we once enjoy. That doesn't mean were confined creatively. We can explore how to stir those embers. Bhai creating self assignments and seeing them through and seeing them through very important. Because if we're successful we'll not only enjoy the fruits of our efforts. Whatever that assignment was. We will have a level of self satisfaction for the accomplishment. And I think this is really important. I think setting goals. That can be accomplished right now. Are Super Important. Because I'll tell you there are days that I get up and they sort of you know. Look at my life and just talking about you know my creative life my working life right now my financial life all those are mixed together. There are days I get up and I look at that and I'm bummed. I am bombed. I just go. How man this is so hard. This is truly difficult and then I'll just go ahead and get to it. Start trying to do one thing and then trying to do the next trying to do something new. You know all that kind of stuff and then I will have a little success. Someone will sign up for a course. Someone will buy a very expensive camera. Someone will do something that sort of puts a little energy into the day and then I get a little momentum and then suddenly I start having more ideas and then I get my energy going. Self assignments can help us in that same way that we set something up that we can accomplish that is worthy of being accomplished. Not only do we have the thing but we get the feeling that goes with it and right now. I think that feeling that feeling good that feeling like I can move forward that I can do something under these conditions. I think that feeling is super important. Because that's what moves us to the next spot. Okay so self assignments. I think are a great way to do that. And they can be anything you can work on for instance assignment for a lot of folks right now. they're just wrapping up digitizing memories.
"humboldt" Discussed on The Wild
"Alexander von Humboldt died in eighteen fifty nine by this time his influence was everywhere not just in visual art but literature and poetry all of which steeped following generations in Humboldt. Ids If there's a knock on his legacy it's just that he refused to focus on anything for very long but Hans. Suess says this helped make connections across the scientific spectrum in some sense humbled was one of the last people who kind of knew everything to know about science. Because this was in the period. Long before any kind of specialization of you see. The body of knowledge in those days was much much smaller than but because he had this broad exposure to different areas of science. He was able to sort of combine things that probably most modern scientists could no longer do. We're just way too specialists and to get sort of a whole picture. We now need basically a group of people and Humboldt found something cool. He'd send it to someone who was an expert and then off to the next thing or look at that that mountain humbled curiosity was his superpower but it was also the thing that prevented him from making discoveries on his own. His expert friends looked out for him though because they kept naming things. After the scientific name is the city Gigan- which means the giant who abides by the law. But the common name is Humboldt Squid. Humboldt Penguin is named after Alexander Humble sanity humbled is a place in Chihuahua. What we're talking about the Humboldt River that runs across state. I gotta clear like a cup. Almo- Neighborhood Portland. Oregon Current Humboldt County California when you visit teaches about squirrel monkeys and many more ten years after he died. One of Humboldt students made a speech in Boston where he said. Every school child in America has been taught by Humboldt but nobody knows his name so even by then what had happened is all of Humboldt. Really interesting ideas had been adopted and built on by generation of scientists. We now know their names. Humbled is not considered the founder of any one of the Professional Sciences. But he influenced the foundation layer of research in each of those areas. It doesn't help that shortly. After the turn of the twentieth century the United States and its allies fought back to back wars against Germany so Americans became suspicious of anything that looked or sounded German. German language books came off the shelves. In American libraries street names were changed. Towns were renamed Humboldt celebrations which had been happening every ten years since eighteen fifty nine stopped and he just faded out. Harvey and sues agree that although Humboldt living memory as a person was erased in this country. His ideas haven't gone anywhere. I think humble Most enduring legacies that he inspired a great many people to think about the conservation of nature. That people were in nature not out of nature and that was something that was really influential in the development of our national parks system. The National Parks Land set aside for the enjoyment of future. Generations have been called America's best idea but that idea might not have taken root without the hyperactive Prussian explorer and his favourite barometer in one thousand. Nine hundred fifty seven. Wallace stagner. I think put it really well when he said essentially we aspire to build a culture to live up to our scenery. What it culminates in really is the development of the National Park Service and that is really humbled legacy you've been listening to side door a podcast from the Smithsonian support for NPR X.

"humboldt" Discussed on The Wild
"Back in the late seventeen hundreds when the forest still held a bit of black magic. A young Alexander von Humboldt was growing up and he loved the woods. Here's the National Museum of Natural History's resident Humboldt historian Hans Suzanne. Young Alexander Humboldt would go out in the forest to look at things so that that was always a magical realm away from civilization yet accessible in most places Humboldt grew up in Prussia an eighteenth and nineteenth century kingdom that included chunks of Modern Day Germany Denmark Poland and Russia. His family was minor nobility. They had lots of money. Fancy houses and the best tutors young Alexander's favourite things to learn about where the plants and animals around him but with that type of upper crust life came certain expectations. Prince Harry knows what I mean. His mother had high hopes that he would become a Prussian government official. Because that's what you did in those days but clearly it wasn't a thing that sort of made him get up in the morning. Young Alexander was a tinkerer his mind. Always working one of his first jobs was as a mining official and even in a job he didn't love. He was driven by curiosity he will. I want to develop a safety lamp for the minds. He tried to think about respiratory equipment because in those days they were absolutely no regulations regarding mining safety. You know you were lucky. If you got your mind at the end of the day and it didn't happen. People just would truck the show. This was part of the job. When humble wasn't saving the lives of miners he indulged his real passion studying plants and animals. He took to London to speak with botanist who had sailed around the world and seen plants places. He fretted. He'd never see. This was the stuff that got him out of bed in the morning and someday he hoped on a ship to see them firsthand and these talks gave humbled and idea one. He wanted to test as he studied plants at home and read reports from afar. He gained this sense that plants animals and climate all around. The world were interconnected. When Alexander was twenty-seven his mom died. He inherited piles of cash and more importantly freedom from her expectations. He would not be a bureaucrat. Forever humbled could finally chase his dreams. He thought like I'm done with all this government officials stuff I just want to see. The world liberated from expectations and flush with cash. Humboldt was free but finding a place he could visit was surprisingly hard wanted to go to India. That didn't work out because of all the colonial wars there. He tried to go to Egypt. But this was around the time that Napoleon was fighting in Egypt. Eventually Humboldt set his sights on Spain's colonies in South America. I think a lot of people thought he was playing. Be Insane to even attempt to do this in seventeen ninety nine. People didn't just casually visit the Amazon. It wasn't like Humboldt. Could just book a ticket. He needed special permission from none other than that. King of Spain but somehow Humboldt could really sweet talk people and put it nicely. Bamboozled swayed to the Spanish Royal House and got permission to travel those countries since humbled excellent adventure was a self funded scientific journey to prove his radical notions. He needed to collect a lot of data while he was in South America and to do that he needed a team. He couldn't survive Venezuela's jungles alone. Here's Eleanor Harvey. I think of her as a historian but she insists. She's an art curator. I am absolutely art curator. I happen to be a historian. Because in order to be an art curator. You have to know the history. The language the music the religion the politics the political cartoons. Otherwise the art doesn't make much sense. Harvey is senior curator at Smithsonian American Art Museum and his created a new exhibition on Humboldt. Who in the summer of seventeen ninety nine was on a ship headed for South America and he made sure he didn't forget anything he brought. Forty two different instruments each one in a velvet lined. Mahogany box carried by assistance importers. He had sextants and thermometers. He had the ability to gauge temperature humidity. He had multiples yet favorite barometer. Which shows up in a number of his portrait after forty one days at sea humbled and his many many instruments disembark in Venezuela and the first thing humble does when his feet touch South American soil is take the temperature. St Ninety nine point eight degrees Fahrenheit and in this way starts exploring this continent largely unknown to European Science. And it's almost as if he doesn't even know where to start. He is measuring everything that he can. But from the atmosphere to the climate to the altitude is gathering plants. He is collecting samples. He is writing up everything. He's talking to all of the local indigenous people because he knows they know more about the landscape than the Spanish colonial overlords. Who are there? It's worth mentioning. Humbled is a European exploring ideas about nature that he developed with the best information he had in Europe the indigenous people who already lived in the Americas they had their own ways of seeing nature which humble was curious about. He's tasting river water trying to taste the difference between the Amazon and the Orinoco. He's actually licking the bark of trees because he hears that. The local Indians can actually distinguish tree types based on the sap and he's very disappointed that he is not able to differentiate their stories about how humble tested the power behind electric eels by grabbing them from the water. Nothing escaped his curiosity for the next few years. He travelled South America sailing walking reading licking writing drawing sailing reading looking writing walk licking humble was particularly interested in the relationships between plants and their surrounding environment and to prove his theory humble and his team went to extreme length. Or extreme heights. I guess because in pursuit of data he decided to climb what was then thought to be. The world's Tallest Mountain Mount Timber Otto Chamber also was believed to be the highest peak on the planet at the time close to twenty one thousand feet and humble decides in the name of science. I will conquer this mountain. It was June twenty second eighteen to almost three years to the day after he left Spain by this time humbled had climbed plenty of volcano. But he hadn't ever tried climbing anything like timber also and he wasn't just climbing humbled employed a number of guides who were willing to help carry his equipment up the mountain so that he could stop periodically to take measurements to collect samples. It first things went fine but fifteen thousand feet up the climb got sketchy you were talking about crevasses glaciers and wind-driven snow Their gums are bleeding. Their feet are bleeding. Eyeballs are bleeding. It's not very pleasant humbled guides quit but through the bloody feet and gums. Humboldt continues collecting data and taking notes. Just below timber. Kim BARATA's summit they get to impassable crevasse otherwise known as a huge crack and so they realize that nineteen thousand four hundred and thirteen feet. They can't get to the summit but it is a mountaineering record that stood for thirty years and Humboldt came out of this with more than just bragging rights. So through all of this climb up. Tim brought so he was collecting data. What did he do with that information? He pulled that information into the core of the Notre Gamal. The Natour Malda Oregon. Seuss would say not tool gifted a nature painting literally his picture of Nature Half Watercolor Half Didactic Information. Columns of information on either side. It was an info graphic that in essence summed up four years of travel in South America and Mexico correlated against ten years of travel and study in Europe. Okay we're GONNA take a moment to describe this nature painting that humbled made because it's really important to understanding his biggest idea. Imagine a page divided into three segments in the center network. Melda shows Mount Kimber. Also you see the mountain itself. Snow covered at the top and then sort of gradually grading down into green and Green Areas. Untruths down here in the rainforest on the mountains right half it's been sliced open and humbled has filled the space with the names of plants found at different altitudes. If all kinds of words and things listed on this single illustration offered humbles audience a brand new way to understand the planet and all life on it but realize that you can't see plants just in isolation if you want to understand the environment so he actually started looking what species corker. How is this occurrence influenced by climate. His goal was to show how mountain ecosystems around the world have similar plants at similar altitudes. The image also argued that altitude and latitude mirror each other. The extrapolated that if in going from sea level at the equator up nineteen thousand.
"Hello Hello Welcome to sheep. I guess I am just a cup for many of you are watching or listening for the first time. That's me this. Is She podcast? Episode to sixty four with my co-host. Lc as Khobar and our producer. John Jim Ingo. How are you guys doing today? Not to ridicule any news whatsoever about anything at all. I mean podcasting but like other like personal stuff. Well Easter was exciting. I did a drive by dinner. How while because I went to my ex this house and then because I'm not going in because they go to work and everything they brought dinner out so the kind of we set like six feet apart and they talked and I had dinner and it was weird. It was really weird. Bonnie says it's a facebook privacy thing about stream yard. They can't see your name unless you grant them permission right and I guess people just don't do it right so no or do they want in that point. A lot of them don't wanted grant permission right so but see. This is a facebook private group so we can see them in here anyhow. This isn't GonNa go. This video is not going anywhere I get it. It's not a big deal. Oh so elsie. So yes Jessica and I figured out something today that I can't believe I didn't think of this. Oh God Jessica has the adobe suite so she has adobe audition okay so one of the things. We've always had problems with his she uses quicktime and some so. She has adobe audition she can record right into addition and we've never used it in two hundred sixty four episodes. Why is that that is so card yet? Dum Dum Dum Dorky. It's Kinda Dorky. Right Kinda dark. You must have known that I've had it though right. No I wouldn't have put to do together because the thing is though just you wanted to break up with adobe suite so many separate times true and not one of the Times that. We've had a discussion about your break-up the possible break-up with adobe suite has audition ever come into the conversation that's never part of your everyday. It's just you know photoshop. Right so we use that to record her instead of quicktime and it would be so much easier and so much better and we would always know that the Mike correctly picked all the good stuff. I am so happy. Yes and we can also add to the track. We can also add compression because just could really her voice can really use compression so that you can do all of that. Pre like Yes prefixed prefixed. For her right so right now on excited like like a kid right before. Christmas. Because I'm excited because when we get off here we're going to make an appointment. We're going to go through this thing. I'm sure there'll be a lot of yelling and hollering there. Yes probably I noticed that I do have an issue when I'm trying to describe and do things when I can't see. It frustrates me when I can't see the other person's what they're doing. It frustrates me and I've been doing a lot of that lately for different clients and stuff as they set up to record in their home. Oh okay yes I need. I need to calm down. I need to be able to breathe through that. I need some kind of yoga breathing. Technique to center my Chee. Said what are you Senator Senator? Something we can just give you just can send Isaac. I can send may May and you can get through them. Then you'll find yours end. You know it's like a living. We'll be like here deal with her for a bit and then leave work through. That had four under the age of four. I know but you haven't. When was the last time? Oh well that's true. This is what I'm saying. It's like there's a practice I know when I'm in I'm in my sixties or seventies and somebody tells me how to deal with a four year five eight year old. I'm not I'm not going to be adapted. I've been like you know. Been out of it for awhile. I'm over. Yeah it's like it's forgotten like I don't even want to think about when they were infants. I don't I know Yeah No. I don't really like the idea of taking my clients and comparing them to eight year old child. I just. That's not the way it is that feeling. Oh the tenseness in the chest and the tightening in the chest he so we have some like communications. Lets say why. Don't we just acknowledge the folks and just to let everybody know that we are as of now for the past few episodes? We as in the sheep. Podcast team has been recording directly into the sea. Podcast super squad. Which is our Patriot community. So you guys can kind of watch. Us Record live in there. We're going to do the show as always Joe. Johns GonNa do post production and everything but we do have a live chat so we have some people there. We have Bonnie and we have Masai Lena. We have tiffany Humboldt who. She just actually posted that. She's. She wore her flower crown from she. Podcasts live during during the Hardcore Mermaid. Show on Friday. That's amazing that's so cool. And then she. She's asking him. What version of Stream Yard? We are using John. This question is for you. Well stream yards a web application. So you don't have to update it so I don't know what version I know what? She's talking about tiffany. You can only record stream yard if you're a pro client pay for that So in order for you to to be able to record and download your files you have to be if you are not a pro then all you can do is stream. So you have the capability to stream. I don't know how many hours for you know. I don't think anybody needs more hours to stream. But that those are all pro functionalities one of the things that Justin I also wanted to do was to do a double streaming stream to hear and to the podcast main group or to the podcast page. And we can't also can't do that unless you're pro so if you're a pro you can. I think you can Cross post to two places at once. We have done that and if we ask. Yeah have the option of two. Yeah Yeah if you're did you upgrade it Ogden profile? I've been down. No I know I know John Is. Yeah but you know I didn't know. Yeah Yeah you can only do the same time. Yeah no no basic no base. It used to be. I think way back right. John like right windstream yard. I started loud. Yeah they allow for yet when it was in. Beta. That's right. They did allow for for recording and downloading but once they opened it up. Then that's what you pay for. May GotTA STAY IN BUSINESS. Somehow and you want him to be able to stay in business. I mean it is an amazing platform. Yeah we're streaming. You know I'm telling you right now. Once they decide if they can record audio as separate separate tracks right they will be a force in podcasting. I don't know if they ever get there yet but still
Food For Thought: The Julia Child Episode
"Yes I taught English in history in Vista California for twenty two years damn near killed me but this young woman here Emily Myers. He came down here with me. Was My student fifteen years ago and I was a big grammar teacher because I went to Catholic school right. So we're doing this grammar exercising. It said Julia Child Comma the French Chef Comma and whatever else to sentence said and so I said to the students this is what two thousand four ish and I said so Julia. You all know who Julia. Child is the seventh grade. I got these blank. Looks let me tell you about Julia. Child told them the whole story about who she was and the French chef and how she was fifty years old when she first started. I was forty when I was became a teacher. And so this that and the other and then I told them the story about how nineteen eighty nine. I was a stay at home. Mom I had my two kids Cayden Matthew who were six and four. No six and two and Julia child came to town to the to Warwick's books to her book signing of the the way to cook her last book that she wrote on her own and I said I have to go see her. I have to meet her. I just have to do this. In the meantime as the stay at home mom was getting bored so I started making English muffins and if local but you know the Panikin isolating the Sh- muffins to the panicking because the guy who used to own the Panikin road motorcycles with my then husband and one day he came over for what they called the Prince of Norton Prints of darkness motorcycle. Ride and Chili Cook Up. You can tell which part I was in that and and I said Hey bob you wanNA try some English Muffins. And Hey say. He had one with my homemade strawberry jam on it. And he's these are great and I said good. Do you want to buy some because I need to do something out of the home and make some money and he said so to gross a week from my little kitchen when I was living by San Diego State. It was hilarious so this is when I was still doing that so I got the babysitter for the baby. Matthew because he was too he would never have known the difference and I took Kate with me now. Kate was six and so she'd been watching with videotapes at that point Julia. Did something called the way to cook. She did a series of videotapes. Kate and I would watch them. Kate's birthday cake. Every year was the classical. Jen was with the whip cream and the strawberries on it and so I took with me because I walked in Julia. I know by the way I made her a dozen English. Muffins packed them up in a box wrote her. A letter. Dear Julia. You are the one who taught me how to cook. My mother thought she did but she didn't. You're the one who really did with your show. Julia Child and company and Julia Child and more company. I've learned everything I've known from. You saw there. She is. She walks in. Cates going. Momma and I know I know she's here so we get in the line in the line and the you know they always have the helpers with them when they're big like that I don't mean in stature I mean you know and so the lady and I said I said here's a spock's English muffins in it. I made them pro. Have this little business so she. It's my turn. She hands the box. Julia is working out. She did this. She took her. She's she. I was looking in her eyes and she was sitting down because she really was too. She's banging on the box. Oh goody goody gumdrops homemade English muffins she's really did say that it was so funny and I said yes and she's and I told her that I was making them. Well I guess profession getting paid for it so I guess that makes it a profession right and she said I'm so she got very serious. I'm so glad you're doing this. We need more cottage industry like this. She said English muffins she said to me. How do you get them to cook so that they're cooked all the way through and not burn on the outside? I'm going Julia. Child is asking me how to do this. And then I remembered her recipe didn't work. This was not her recipe. This was from a jam book called Jam. Shame or something like that and I said Yeah. That is the secret. Isn't it and I told her how I did it. And it was all about rolling it around in a bowl of corn meal and I said like you had taught me on one of your shows about cornmeal being like a ball bearing and she said I never really thought about that and she was unbelievable. I couldn't believe it. So we're in the store and she signs the book and she didn't sign much of anything. Good luck or whatever and then. Kate neier lurking around the store watching her some more and she oh and you should have seen you know how mom's right so this kid of mine is six years old. She's just standing there looking at her and Julia said some things to. I can't remember what it was but it was really cute. So okay fast forward. It's two thousand ten. I'm on what I called my odyssey because I decided being teacher. I need to take some time off during the summer. Actually do something and not stand at the Xerox Machine. Getting Ready for the next school year. Merola grammar packets. Remember those and I took off. I went on this Odyssey. I went up to Portland just to go to Powell's books because I needed more cookbooks. Right to add to that four thousand collection and so I'm coming back. It's twenty in my little. Volkswagen Cabriolet with the top down and Bonnie Raitt blasting. Having a great time end. The car dies on the side on the side of the road. I got I two tires off the road. That was it and I'm talking about on this very near. Oh I was four miles north of point arena which is two hundred and fifty miles north of San Francisco on the one and not the one. Oh one the one the one the ones the one that goes like this and you can only drive twenty five miles an hour thankfully so I've got my two tires off on the side of the road and some guy comes turns around takes his truck and pushes me the rest of the way off the road and I was a little nervous about that. Call whoever the tow truck comes. I'm taking pictures of the tow truck. Taking my car away they take me down to point arena. I was on my way to that. Lighthouse also lighthouses and now. I'm stuck there for a week because I don't know if I can say this. But what does the industry in Humboldt county growing exactly so the town of point arena about five blocks long? The entire town is stoned. Looks like you can see smoke through the whole thing so he kept my car for a week. Never fixed it. Charge me a thousand dollars. Never fixed it he he had it towed to Healdsburg where his brother fixed it for another thousand dollars. That's another story anyway. So I put it up on facebook. The picture of my car being towed and one of my friends called and he said. I love point arena. You have to meet the Jam Lady. I said okay. Well I'll meet the family so I walk a mile down the road because I don't have a car turn right and there's a sign the Jam Lady. Her real name is Lisa Joa committees. She calls herself Jam Lady. She makes jam in point arena. Sends it all over the place? I went inches a full kitchen like that. One all stainless steel really professional. That we start talking Blah Blah Blah. She Says Yeah. I used to work for Barbara Tropic. China Moon Cafe and I said Oh my God I love her. She figured she'd Cook. My dinner sometime before I was like. Oh my God. This is amazing. She says I told her the Julia Child Story. Oh I forgot to tell you part of it. She wrote me a letter. She answered my little note that I had scrawled on a little tiny legal piece of paper. She wrote me a letter. Julia Child wrote Miller. I have evidence and so I read. I wrote back to her. She wrote me again. I still owe a letter. I don't know why I never finished that. So I'm telling this story to Lisa The lady. She says wait right here. Okay what's going on here? I mean this really weird place she disappeared. Disappears upstairs comes down with a box opens the box? She has a dozen flutes. Champagne flutes. Julius ninetieth birthday party she says you need. These gave me two of them. Doesn't that amazing I just went? I'm a total stranger and you she said we're not strangers. She said you have to have these. They have to be yours and size. Okay thank you thank you. We wrapped in very carefully. They got home even through the bumpy. Healdsburg thing and so then on her hundredth birthday. And I'm not sure what I think that was. I don't remember what year it was on her hundredth birthday. I was home from school that day. I think in August I was home legally and I cooked everything just all Julia Child and I called one of my friends. I said come on over. We use the Julia Child flutes. We had a little split of champagne. We toasted her. I put it all up on facebook. It was amazing and now it's so funny. I have those glasses there in my glass cabinet. But they're hidden in the back and my son in law was here in February and he went to reach for that to put for his champagne. I said Oh no look what that says on it.

"Dates but it's the flu clark have not been sent out yet absolutely humbled as an influence there but jevons wants to talk to him for hours about his america's new neighbors american now touches mexico which continues to this day and is a totally easy and untroubled relationship still connect with max. We i have not figured this out. In our time it says fraught as ever largely have our own doing and so the fact that this guy is an expert on every aspect aspect of mexico from archaeology ethnology botany to jefferson you know he prepares an eighteen page dossier for jefferson the explaining to america what it means to have new spain as neighbors and in fact his discussions with madison about his environmental beliefs are later what leads to some madison's famous speeches about and the importance of preserving the frontier sorry the frontier and of course you get emerson and thoreau right so this guy really in the other connections measuring the magnetic field everywhere. He gets enough of these measurements to actually compute where the magnetic equator is. I'm astonished astonished. That sailors hadn't been doing that kind of measurement apparently not like it was known. I guess it was known that the geographic was not the magnetic pole but when he tells people hate we just crossing the equator like nobody understands what he's talking about. There's no magnetic. He's like there is and it's not the geographic equality and gets enough of these to be able to plot irregularities nearest magnetic field and around in the early nineteenth century he enlists list volunteers all over the world to help map the magnetic equator he notices a cold ocean current going up by ecuador is still named the humboldt current to this day and does he climbs the andes. He notices that all these volcanoes all the way up to mexico are kind of in a straight line. There's like a there's like a single ridge or maybe two distinct ridges of volcanoes volcanoes. He's noticing and he discovers what today we call. The pacific ring of fire like he realizes that volcanoes are not isolated things. They're they're linked in some kind of a rival some kind of an underground fashion so dozens of sciences he basically gives us our modern understanding of and when his book start to come out he becomes the most one of the most influential and famous thinker on the planet he published twenty volumes of his his exploration well over twenty something like thirty and by the end of his explorations. I said there had only been six thousand species discovered he brought back sixty thousand thousand samples of six thousand species including in those enlightened ages monkey skeletons and even even human skeletons. He was not above bringing back archaeological digs that included human remains but mostly plant specimens in six thousand species two thousand of which were new species easies so the so he he widened the breadth of botany by thirty three percent just by wandering around south america for for five years and most importantly taking notes. It's a it's a really good lesson for any of us who have ever thought i have cool thoughts like that all the time. I just need to start carrying around a notebook well. That's a hair. That's the astonishing thing right. I i mean <hes> that he not only wrote it down but thought to write it down thought right down at the time and then synthesized spent decades synthesizing five years of findings until he figured out how vulcan ism work and hummingbird fields worked and how whether worked <hes> how how geographic climate zones owns and vegetative zones worked. His fame continued long after his death on september fourteen by the time he died. You know everything had been named named for him monuments memorials and cities and bodies of water. I should say looking at it here that his his visit to jefferson in in the united states coincided almost exactly with the departure of lewis and clark so they would have definitely heard briefing stuff from humbled. Yeah i guess so it on september fourteenth of eighteen sixty nine. This is the one hundred anniversary of his death he he's passed away decades before but he is such a big eighteen sixty.

"Line. He sees how they change with altitude. So he really understands vegetation zones global vegetation zones global climate zones. And he gives us a concept of nature that still very much shapes out thinking today, he. Describes nature as a web of life. And he describes as a living organism, which is something completely new at that time interesting because it was Charles Darwin is as I said at the beginning whose name comes to us when we think about this. But Humboldt preceded Darwin and did Darwin say that he was an influence on his career. Yes. Very much. So Dobbin set that it was homeboy writing homegoods books that actually made him want to go on the beagle. In amazingly on the beagle. He had his Humboldt books on a shelf at next to his hammock. And these book still exists today when we look at them we can see that Dobbin underlying them, so they're heavily annotated. So reading those books gives us an idea how humbled influence Dobbin. And it's almost like listening to to the two of them having a conversation. So ideas, such as the transmutation of species, for example, is something that Darwin underlines in Humboldt books writing interesting. That's the. Phones today in Reno. David welcome to science Friday. Well, thank you. And my thanks to Andrea wolf for bringing attention to this great scientists through her books are stated Nevada has the humble river. It has a county name Humboldt and also was almost named humbled as a state and recently, we had a proclamation in the Nevada legislature honoring humbled two hundred fiftieth birthday. So my question to the guests is how do we get more recognition for Humboldt in the United States? Read the book, I guess to begin with. That was that was exactly what I know you word. That's why there was a silent. Fair waiting for me say. That would be a nice start. But it's true. You know, we Americans have we have places named after people and certainly on both. You know, we we we see up on a signed. But we don't know who was. What even I mean, I gave a talk at Humboldt state university. And a lot of students that don't know why humble state university schooled humble state university. So they think it's called Humboldt state university because of Humboldt county so. Spend time in the states here. He he came to he met washing. He he went to Washington. So you met Thomas Jefferson and James Madison by he never went west. He wanted to buy he never managed to because he's he's so restless and curious that he just kind of gets distracted by the things. But a lot of his. Follow us when than west and named a lot of things after him. So that's the reason why they are many places in counties and bays and rivers named after Humboldt in the in the western US. And how did you decide what the illustrate? I mean, there's so much that he did was an over arching feeling. Well, yeah. I mean, there are definitely points that we need to hit certain experiments that we definitely wanted to bring to life, but the same time. I mean, a lot of it was dictated by Andrea writing, which of course, came directly from his manuscripts. Some of these events in his manuscripts are just so over the top and just exciting in themselves that you know, you can't not illustrate them. It's it's quite interesting. I want to let me go to the break because there's so much more to talk about. I don't want to interrupt your let me just remind our listeners that we're talking about the this great new book that's out there, and it's it's profusely illustrated.

Andrea wolf author of the adventures of Alexander von Hubble, Chee Humboldt. She lives in London. Welcome. Hi. And Lillian Melcher who illustrated the book she joins us from Boston muck to science Friday. Nice to have you. Andrea. This is not your first. Visit to our always talk about von Humboldt. Your last book, the invention of nature was our first look at this. This rather amazing adventure? Why did you need another book? Yeah. That's a question. I get off a lot. So basically when I finished the invention of nature when finished the manuscript of the mention of nature, the legendary humble diaries which had been in private ownership until then where bought by an archive in Berlin. That wasn't a problem, really. In Tom's of contents of I had transcriptions of these daughters for the invention of nature. But when I saw the four thousand pages which were filled with homeboy rather indecipherable handwriting. But with hundreds of sketches, I knew that I wanted to do another book a book that showed his autistic site because these pages had just sketches of monkeys and flowers and birds and fish and profile of mountains and maps of river. It was really a way to bring homeboy to life in a in a different way, I suppose, so so his diaries. These were the first time anybody got to see his drawings. Yes. So so we had to. Scripture. So we had the the words we had but they had been in private ownership. So the archive in Berlin made them available online. So you everybody can have a look at them old for thousand pages, and they're absolutely beautiful and incredible in the book and fire listeners would like to talk about it. Our number eight four four seven two four eight two five five you can also tweet us at scifi Lillian when you look at Humboldt stern his drawings. What do they say about how his his mind worked from one artist to another? Well, I think it really shows how how much he wanted to make science accessible. He wasn't. It was as if he was writing the manuscripts not only for his own recollection. But also thinking of people in the future reading them. I think he was thinking that we need to know what this leaf looked like. And how this tent was constructed and in illustrating this book, his meticulousness came in handy, quite a lot you bring to life in amazing array of adventures in this book. He humbled climbed volcanoes. He witnesses meteor showers and at one point capsizes his boat in your noca- river will or you some of the most satisfying stories what what what we're supposed satisfying for UT illustrate what did you find? I think my most satisfying moment, and it was really a moment where I felt like I was conversating with humbled himself. There's this one moment where his servant falls through a snowbank snow bridge into a massive crevasse on top of volcano. And he describes this moment in so much detail, and he even draws a a little diagram with each point labeled with a letter..

Things have been proved so much hair. You know, where we came from back in the day. And now things are really working really, well, especially with new leadership and good leadership with Jennifer and our team and what the secretary coming. We really had a banner year. I think thing. You know, we're almost fully staffed because of all of our hiring. You know, we've been able to do. So that's making things better that people don't have to do two or three jobs. You know that everyone's doing the job that they're hired to do. And you know, well, actually be able to have a state of the VA townhall at the secretary on January the seventeenth.

Well, first of all that the secretary would make the time I because it's such a frenetic schedule. But to take the time to talk with our folks tremendous number of veterans who listen to the program. I I was delighted honored and appreciative that you, Jennifer, etc. Cited that you know, this program that we do reach a lot of folks in. It's a benefit it is. I think it's also one of the best practices. We do and all the players that. I know what who works for the the the relationship that you, and I have had and built with our veterans because this is so important that I especially my and my sight impaired veterans who or those who don't have internet access. You know, how important is it to be able to get a weekly update? And I know that you've given us that platform. So I really really appreciate it. And so does the secretary of the VA much? Thank you for that very much, and we'll continue, of course, there you and I have talked at length in years past that the uniqueness of our veterans experience unless you have walked in their boots. It's going to be very difficult to understand and comprehend. The unfortunate part is that some of our friends find. That suicide is an answer for them. And we as loving caring and supportive, people would love to at least do our very best to help assist in. Anyway, before that decision comes to a conclusion. Please share with us a tremendous amount of outreach. That is coming. Yeah. We need to know. And what we need to do. So suicide prevention is still a top priority is our top clinical priority. So the department of the DA and the goal of the suicide prevention efforts to ensure wherever veterans are receiving their care whether it's through the air and the community that they are and being cared for by well trained providers who who are in tune to what is available to our veterans. So we have people who all their job is to ensure that our veterans are seen in a crisis at any given time. So, you know, we have the crisis veteran crisis.

Chris Joseph for members of son Jackson being concerned when he was traded to humble during the season. You really never know how you're going to fit in with a new team. His concern didn't last long. He really fell in love with the team Jackson had said to me later on. He goes dad team is so good. There's no clicks everybody gets along to said while Jacksonville embrace that. Because that's rare I said in my whole career, I've only been on two three or four teams like that that have been special all of that. I think was a testament to Dr seat bringing in quality people. And just gelled. The humble team truly love their coach Darcy HOGAN that was the first thing Caleb noticed when he too was traded to Humboldt in the middle of the season. Darcy was unbelievable. He when I first came in. He just set the tone is like here like here check ship that was based thing as he believed day one, and we all needed to believe day one as well. So I hopped on board all our leaders hopped on board or like, yeah, we're with Darcy we're gonna do this one of the biggest things for him is kind of like before he even acquires a player for a team. He was kind of like, okay. How are they as a person? Like, I wanna know how they are human beings. Like, you would reach out to billets and be like, how are they at home? You know, and then he'd reach out to other coaches, it'd be like how is in the dressing room like they could have been an all star player. But if they're about like, you wouldn't want them on their team into bub all Darcy treated as players with the same respect. He demanded that they show to him. And each other like every coach I've had cousin address. View and rip zoo part at some point during the season. And then takes it back. The next day. I'm sorry. Like, I was mad Darcy never came in address room and ripped us apart. Once that was one of the biggest things I respected him was. I hear expected us, and we all had to respect him. Darcy was one of the souls lost in the crash, but the effect he had on the boys was profound and the way they treated each other largely as a result of the way, he treated them was equally profound like hockey was important to us when we're at the rink. And that was a Harper center jobs, but it was about being great friends to like it was about being great people to one another. I played nineteen years professional hockey. And I know what I good team looks like and that was a good team whether they were gonna win championship or or not is it relevant. What they had was special moment where they all got along they job, and they would have been. Lifelong friends beyond hockey, the boys just had fun together. Mondays. For instance, we all picked like the girl who thought that the guy would end up being within the end, and then all thrown five bucks. And then we'd all go over and you'll have a glass of wine and the boys watched the bachelor together, I think the most we had at one episode was seventeen and the least thirteen so there was a huge outing as that my Bilas house, we hosted it every Monday and has good tile as get together. They had fun doing just about anything together. I do remember Jackson. He would talk about bachelor night. He would talk about playing fortnight online, boys. He would include his little brother here in Edmonton. And you know, there's a little brother would play fortnight with the boys online. Sometimes they would go. You know, they shoveled snow together. They were having their always had get togethers. Girlfriends all got the boys together and they parties with the girlfriends. It was just a a really nice group. Some of the most fun.

Chris plan to watch the Broncos game from home with his wife. We actually had dinner made call from a friend here in Saint Albert that his boy pleading SJ JAL as well. He told me that there had been an accident. That's all he knew and so right away. We started calling Jackson started calling families try to find out what we could and information was extremely limited. And after I think we sat home for about an hour and the uh say, well, forget this. We'll just driving because we know whatever it is to be there as seven hundred heard a lot of the boys gang flown into Saskatoon hospital there. So that was our first stop. And that's where everybody ended up going, and that was kind of our first stop in our life stuff at the hospital doctors. Took them to see Jackson on the boy, they were taking a c- wasn't their son. There was a traumatic seen as far as triage goes trying to quickly identify anybody. I don't think there would be a worse in area than this. Because they all look like, you know, built like they'll had long hair all head lots of injuries. So information would have been a challenge to say. The least they started asking around and making more calls trying to figure out where Jackson was where Jackson finally after awhile. It became apparent that Jackson was one of the ones that did not get out. And it took us a while to realize that put together, but yeah, we were one of the last ones to find out where he wants. It turns out that it when I realized that for sure Jackson wasn't wearing those clothes. Jackson wasn't at the hospital. That was my moment. Only knew that if you were unaccounted for that means you left behind the scene. Because you were dead on. Chris's been coaching for years since he retired from the H L. But after the accident, he didn't know if he'd be able to anymore. I think one of my going to get on the ice. And it's gonna be too hard on my going to break down in tears and not be able to coach as the death toll rose news of the crash site emotional shockwaves throughout Canada and around the world. People donated some twenty million dollars for the team through go fund me media flocked to the area and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau himself visited humbled.
