The Story of Miss Baker - Space Monkey

"Okay so what was the plan. Were they going to do with these. Twenty-six tiny cute monkeys already worried about them. Yeah so nasa wasn't a thing until nineteen fifty eight so for years. The army and the navy have been running these tests to see if it's safe to send humans to space and that's where these twenty-six tiny monkeys come in. So were they going to send all twenty six of these monkeys into space or was there like some kind of training tiny centrifuges how they just please imagine for a moment a monkey training montage. They had to go through like stimulated flights and lab testing. And you know stress testing like they were looking for the smartest calmest monkey to send to space. Yeah i'm totally imagining the monkey version of the right stuff. And i'm sure this isn't isn't true but i'm picturing like tiny silver jumpsuits and little monkeys walking down the tarmac in slow motion for sure. That is what i'm picturing. So it all sounds really cute. Little monkey nuts blazing a trail to the stars. But actually the us government at this point has been trying for a decade to bring a monkey back alive so starting in nineteen forty eight we had albert. The i went down to the tail. Explosion albert the second valve failure alpert. The third parachute didn't open i. I mean it's interesting and this is like it's both totally awful but gives you some sense of why they're doing these experiments right because they're going to send people into space plans to send people into space years out from sending people to space and so far there just you know. Just a bunch of dead monkeys. This is i mean so. This is pretty grim up until we get to miss baker. How did they end up choosing miss baker. So it's spring of nineteen fifty-nine. There's all launch scheduled. And so the navy basically narrows it down to one candidate and its tiny female squirrel. Monkey barely on adults. And she's teeny tiny. You hold her in your hands She has this adorable little like white mask on her face. You know tiny little like bear shaped ears a long tail super long fingers. Ucr your heart just goes out to her and the researchers really liked this particular monkey. The even named her tlc for tender loving care. They basically figure if she she was the smartest the most docile and that she was the best candidate for this mission little known fact nineties hip hop group. Tlc named after her frie- you music box out there. Score that one away. That's that that's not true so the mission was coming up and all higher ups like we. We can't call her. Tlc that's not. That's not going to sound good over the radio. And so they renamed her baker specifically they renamed her miss baker and her co pilot for the mission was another monkey and they call her. Ms able and so finally. It's may twenty eight one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine launched a cape canaveral. They load miss baker up into this really scary looking contraption it's like a water bottle or metal thermos and she's wrapped up in there like a mummy in this little jacket and she able or walked out onto the tarmac where they launched all the ships and they're loaded into the top of a rocket fifty ton jupiter rocket fifty tonnes for two tiny monkeys. Okay so they're on top of this building sized fifty ten rocket they're tiny they're cute and this giant rocket this big launch. It's all for them. There's nothing else going on today so owning to thirty five. Am one lengthening. We have looked up thirty monkeys strapped in escaping from the gravity of earth and into space at one point. They're moving at ten thousand miles per hour. Just imagine flint would be terrifying for anybody much less a monkey in total they spend about fifteen minutes in space and then the nosecone detaches from the rocket and it begins the descent. Forty-five minutes after the launch. The nosecone splashes down about two hundred fifty miles off the coast of puerto rico. Just after five. Am that morning. The uss kua pulls up at picks up the nose cone and everyone is very nervous. They were desperate for these monkeys to have survived. So one of the guys aboard ship popped open the nose cone and both the monkeys were alive. Everyone was just everyone was so happy. They radio back to cape canaveral and they said able baker are perfect. No no problems after unwrapping her from her coat and her thermos one of the guys on the ship gave miss baker at a little cookie. And so it was. It was a huge success because these were the first monkeys to return alive from space. Oh wow yeah and these were like the first american animals to kind of come back in one piece and you know like at this point. This is the middle of the space race. There's a lot riding on this as a very very geopolitically important little tiny monkey yeah she was a big deal and you would be for the rest of your life so immediately miss baker in her co-pilot miss able are shipped off to washington. Dc for a press conference because our what do you mean a press conference the monkeys you gotta understand there now vip very important primates but four days after the landing something really sad happens miss able dies in a freak accident and so now. Miss baker is the only the only monkey to return alive from space and america's only animal astronaut to have survived. And so that just kind of makes her even more special there. Were you know newsreels about her children's books printed about her or she gets fanmail especially from children. She was on good morning. America at one point. She got double billing with the jackson five. That is famous. Yeah i also. I also love post her career in science her life kind of like moves into the gossip pages. A little more public figures like that like they do something you know like kind of given a title. She's called america's first lady in space. That's how she was seen so miss baker after her flight. She goes back to pensacola. You know there's a yearly parade in her honor but mostly she settles down. You know her handlers. Even get her a companion. Another squirrel monkey named big george and after a while the hands even hold a wedding for them so like many young couples miss baker in big george moved to a bigger place. The newly built us space and rocket center huntsville alabama and by. Now it's nine thousand nine hundred seventy one and it's been more than a decade since miss baker took her spaceflight so big george eventually passes away and miss baker immediately married off again to another monkey. And it's very celebrity. It's very tabloid. The space center even sends out engraved invitations and has a real judge into the fishy eight And they dress up miss baker in like a train veil. She actually rips off a couple minutes into the ceremony. Good for you good for you. Miss baker and so she you you just get this idea of like how precious she was to people in nineteen eighty-four. She dies of acute kidney failure. She's twenty seven years old and at this point. She is the longest known living squirrel monkey in history. She at this point. She's broken every single record for like the average lifespan of a squirrel monkey. So miss baker's led this long life. She had like an official wedding when she died where she given. The same treatment was a funeral. Or what happened. Oh yeah she was sent off in style she was buried right outside of the. Us rocketed space center and three hundred people showed up just to witness her being laid to rest. I saw some pictures to like flower. Reason like these signs saying you know like miss baker america's first lady of space born nineteen fifty seven died nine hundred eighty four. And you know she was that day she was laid to rest next big george who had been buried there for a couple of years now. That's nice that's nice

Yaa Gyasi Discusses Her Latest Book, Transcendent Kingdom

"Was born in ghana amazed in huntsville alabama process novel. Going was a sunday times bestseller. The national book critics circle award for best first novel and was shortlisted for the pen. Robert w bingham prize for fiction. Twenty seventeen she was selected as one of granta's best young american novelists and in two thousand nineteen the bbc's elected her debut is one of the hundred novels that shape. Our world and latest novel is transcendent kingdom. And that's what we're going to talk about today. Y'all welcome to little atoms. Thank you thanks for having me. Tell me festival how you would describe this novel. So transcendent kingdom is about a woman named gifty who is completing a phd At stanford and neuroscience and she studies phenomenon called neural circuitry of reward seeking behavior which for lay people just means that she said he's things like addiction and depression and it's at a time in her life when her own mother who is quite depressed has come to stay with her so she finds herself taking care of her mother while also doing this research while also reflecting on her childhood particularly the circumstances that led up to her beloved older brothers passing from an opioid overdose and sets a book about Family about mother daughter relationships about immigration about religion and about science knows your debut. Homegoing was a a historical epic a sprawling multigenerational story. This one. obviously as you've just described it covers some big issues big ideas in it but it's focused down on a one single family and indeed a family. That's getting smaller not getting larger year. It never it didn't really feel like a conscious choice and from the beginning of transcendent kingdom. It just seemed like a more intimate story like a smaller canvas. In that way. I wanted to focus on the way that trauma works in a family Which is a theme homegoing as well But in this case it was a much smaller and lay. It just felt natural. I think so much of transcendent. Them is about the ways that isolation has affected this one woman gifted life and in order to kind of capture that isolation loneliness a needed the i needed the smaller scale Gifted just isn't a character. Who has this kind of abundant family life. Her family moves to the states before she's born and once they get here they're kind of cut off from the larger extended family ongoing obviously had characters who were also cut off from family. But i feel like the point of that book was to kind of showed this broader family to show the family tree in its fullness to see the way that these cutoffs impact the individual Transcendent kingdom were just starting with the single branch and that set so gifty as you said. She's a nervous scientist. He's on on a day carrying out a particular experiments and this is a real thing. Tell us what it is. She's doing and where where this came for. You used it in the book share and so years conducting this experiment. While i think i call it in the book like a behavioral testing chamber Basically she puts mice into this chamber that she's created and she trains the mice to press a lever for a word in this case. It's like a chocolate milk drink when they pressed the lever the milk floods into the straw. They're all excited. And then after some time she changes conditions so sometimes when they press the lever they get the drink and other times when they pressed the lever. They get a mild foot shock instead. And there's no pattern to it. So the mice never figure out when or why beat shocks happening And what she discovers is that some of the mice stop pressing leper but others. Don't stop those mice. The who are effectively addicted to drink are the ones that she uses to study the neural pathways that are involved in addiction. in a a came to this Research via my own best friend. Her name is tina ken. She is a a neuroscientist herself. And when i started writing this book we were both living in california as she was finishing up her. Phd at stanford. I should mention. She's a friend from childhood so just kind of random that she ended up at stanford which is my my own alma mater But at any rate she was finishing her. Phd bear and around that time she had a major paper published that i wanted to read I thought that i understood what she did. But while i tried and failed to read the paper. I realized that i had no idea what she did And so. I just kind of asked if she would allow me to shadow her and her lab at that point. I didn't really know that. I was writing a book just kind of wanted to get a better understanding of research And thankfully and graciously she said yes. And so i spent the day with her and The day i went she was performing this surgery on her mice. That detail in the opening pages transcendent kingdom. And i just found it. So fascinating. Counter research fascinating. The whole process was unlike anything. Obviously that i ever spend my day thinking about. And i found that those places where your own curiosity is sparks places that feel incredibly different but also for tile are the best places to lean into for for creative worth so it felt natural to want to know more. It felt natural to to try to think about it to fiction so

The University of Alabama Shooting

"On february twelfth. Twenty ten forty five year. Old niro biologist. Amy bishop arrived a routine faculty meeting with her university of alabama huntsville colleagues about the minutes after the meeting started. She pulled a handgun from her purse and fire on the group after she fled the conference room bishop discarded her bloodstained jacket and weapon in a bathroom. She intended to slip out unseen and meet her husband outside the shelby center but was intercepted by police outside. The building bishop was then arrested and taken into custody. The shooting critically wounded six of bishops colleagues. Killing three it was a senseless as it was ruthless and many wondered what prompted the usually reserved scientists to turn violent. It didn't take investigators long to uncover a vital clue according to the new yorker a police chief from the boston suburb of braintree. Where bishop had grown up called huntsville's sheriff's department the morning after the shooting. His warning was grave. The woman you have in custody. I thought you'd wanna know. She shot and killed her brother back in. Nineteen eighty six according to amy's mother. Judy bishop when amy was twenty one. She accidentally shot her younger brother. Seth as judy told. Amy been home visiting from college and mistaken seth for an intruder. The family had experienced a break in their house the year before and amy's father purchased a shotgun for security. Amy raised the loaded shotgun but stopped short when she realized it was only seth arriving home from running errands but when she attempted to unload the gun. Amy accidentally shot her eighteen year. Old brother killing him. Amy was held in police custody until that evening. Boston police indicated. They believed to be an accident. Supported by a medical examiner's analysis of seth's gunshot wound though the incident likely caused. Ptsd shock. amy. Bishop didn't receive counselling or psychiatric treatment following her brother's death. When bishop later married and became a mother. Despite the appearance of normality it became clear that she was prone to explosive behavior. She reportedly lashed out in public on various occasions. Even physically assaulting a stranger pancake restaurant whose family was seated before hers bishop was also known to dismiss graduate students in her lab that she was supposed to be advising some acquaintances believed she was growing arrogant and resentful this increasingly erratic behavior coupled with reports that bishop had grown bitter and isolated after being denied tenure led investigators to believe the shooting was a demonstration of retaliation and anchor as bishop awaited trial in prison. The case of her brother's death was also reopened in june of two thousand ten. A grand jury indicted. Amy bishop for first degree murder of her brother shortly after she was indicted on multiple counts including capital murder and attempted murder for the february twelfth. Shooting though bishop initially pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity she ultimately pled guilty and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole bishop tried unsuccessfully to appeal the ruling and while she later express some remorse for her actions as nbc. News reported in two thousand fifteen many wary of bishops sincerity one survivor of the huntsville. Shooting cited it as a ploy to reduce her time in prison to date bishop continues to serve her sentence in an alabama penitentiary.

U.S. Space Command Headquarters May Land In Alabama

"In the South. Several states, including Colorado, Nebraska in Florida, were hoping it would be them. But instead, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey is announced. The space command is going to Huntsville, known as Rocket City for its rich space history. Werner von Braun. His team developed the first American Rockets and the Saturday five used during the Apollo program at Huntsville's Redstone Arsenal. Huntsville is also the home for Nasa's Marshall Space Flight Center and Space Camp. Space Command is not to be confused with space Force, which is a different branch of the military. Peter King.

Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to.

I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence.

"We now have passed the two hundred, thousand person milestone. Desk from coronavirus. Anthony Fauci is called the stunning. Obviously, very upsetting. What's what's your react with reaction to this? I think it's troubling whether we're looking in the Review Mirror at the past six six, almost seven months now, and how did we get to two hundred thousand and I don't know a public health expert who believes that that number should not be significantly lower. you know this is a deadly virus. Of course, you're going to lose some people but you know the president's handling of it is the number one issue in the Campaign Supreme Court pick not withstanding and so I think in the rear view mirror it is sad sobering numbing I do these numbers every day and I stay up at night crunching them looking for changes in the trends and I don't pretend to be a scientific expert but it is it's depressing So two hundred, thousand Americans that's grand rapids. Michigan. That Salt Lake City Utah at Huntsville Alabama just wiped off the map just just gone. In seven months, six months really before when the first death. If you think about that, it's just it. It is mind blowing and so then you look forward and at the moment there were fifty one thousand plus new infections confirmed yesterday we're going back up We're not coming down You know there's just no way to swallow a process two, hundred, thousand dead Americans were about to hit seven million cases. Every one of those numbers is a person it's your brother, your sister, your son or your daughter, your neighbor, your friend, your colleague. The numbers can get the numbers get so big sometimes I think we kind of IMP de personalized them or impersonal is them well, we can't do that and I don't care what your politics are. We should never do that and I it is it painful looking backwards jevon mortuary. But when you looking forward we're heading we're we're right now going back up. So. That means more infections and that inevitably means more deaths the doctors will tell you they're better at treating this now. So the you know the death rate would not be as high as it was back at the peak of all this but still especially. When the all the experts tell you, it is preventable. Any is a crime.

We're continuing to make our name for ourselves. In that space literally the NFL. And Designing the rockets that are going to take us a further into into deep than we have ever been before. Grayson Huntsville's not just a museum. It's an actual working facility they're still. Marshall Space. Flight Center. They're still doing all of that were over there on the rich and arsenal in what is there to do with the Space Center for family. Defense my your. Recruiting, exhibits. Right now is is actually probably my favorite exhibits that they've ever had the rocket center. It's it's actually the. Exhibit that focuses on the? Apollo Eleven. Mission the first mission that took successfully that took people to the moon. Back in nineteen sixty nine and it's fascinating. You know that got artifacts from that. Artifacts from President Kennedy e-ends letters from his wife Jackie in it's just it's very fascinating exhibit so those. End, they kind of run the gamut from. Betty so they do exhibits on technology. Math in really making that interesting two kids in making that kind of. If, you're going to the rocket center earned and maybe you're isn't into math I know that I'm still as an adult. Foster that interest and kind of getting them interested in that. And of course, you can go into the day since center and see the full scale replica of the Saturn five rocket It's ash is actually a national landmark. And they've got a a sitting. Display of the space shuttle. So you can walk around and. It's mind blowing to seeing how large the these things were on the rockets in the shuttles and. It's just fascinating. And a main to throw in and they're like I. Know you think hose go look at Espace Museum go round the History Museum or they have is they have like the gravity of they have where the three you up in the air. They have a Morris Grill you get to learn about a monkey named mistaker Soleil into space, and you can lead Anna at her grave because she lived up respite. After Space Rocket Center. So not only do you see experiences as look at this history of? Have Rides climbed walls that have on simulators that you can do. Hands on stem and then. To go along with that just outside the rocket park and their gift shop is amazing. one of my favorite things that they've just added was intuited planetarium. So you.

Travel to Alabama

"Welcome traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen just see if we don't deliver on that word epic that I put in the intro. We've got lots to talk about as we talk about Alabama. I'd like to welcome the show. Larry Beiber who is a freelance travel, writer and editor also has his own website at Larry Bloomberg. Dot Com, and also at civil rights travel dot com, and he's come to talk to us about Alabama Larry Welcome to the show. Let's great to be here, Chris. This is a show that is about a year and a half in the making at least not with Larry. We just got him involved recently, but I've done three trips to Alabama last year and a half and had been really wanting to do a show about it. But I really wanted to do it with somebody who knew more about Alabama than I did and Larry. You've lived in Alabama for eleven years. I, think. We say that's right over a decade. And you came there to work a job in the travel magazine industry at. At coastal living, which was based here as is southern living in cooking, light and a lot of other magazines. Why should somebody go to Alabama? There's lots of reasons and I think the place to start is that most people don't know about Alabama? They they know. Their stereotypes there's. There's what they've heard over the years, but the truth is the south remains one of the most colorful and least understood parts of the country and the best way to learn about. It is to go there, and it's easy. It's easy to do and this I. Think will turn People's view under head. It's the center of Civil Rights History which I think. A lot of people know in the best way to understand that as visit the sites where these famed events happened. But it's also got incredible food. One of the most vibrant food scenes in the country right now mountains in some of the best beaches in the country, if not the world, which again does not fit that stereotype that people have the deep south well. I'm going to be one of those people that admits that I Alabama was something like my forty seventh state to go to or something like that, and it was kept to the last somewhat because I grew up in the sixties, and my picture of Alabama was what I saw on the nightly news. It was that troubled. Civil Rights history that we talk about which we can. Celebrate what happened now and and what went on, but it was kind of tough to watch it all going on at the time, and that colored my views of Alabama for pope. And I have fallen in love with the state here in the last trips that I've gone through and a little surprised to say that because I didn't really expect to. But what would you recommend for an itinerary for Alabama? Alabama literally goes from the mountains to the seas in I I would start just for simplicity's sake in the north. In Huntsville and in the Florence area where you will see incredible NASA rocket history because I was intrical part of the NASA system, the NASA development and then. Some a rock and roll shrine in the muscle shoals hall of fame, and then down to Birmingham where you do find that civil rights history where a lot of those disturbing images happen half a century ago. Frankly and now it's one of the most vibrant food scenes in the country and a place. That really has a buzz to it. There's a lot of new parks architecture. There's a lot of people they may be. Decades ago would have left to go off to find their fortune in New York or Los Angeles. And now they're staying there and creating some wonderful things and then I. go down to Montgomery with the state capital. Eight incredible new memorial is just open. I don't know if you've seen that. The equal justice just there. The Lynching Memorial, which I was told by an architecture critic, maybe the most important memorial in this country in the decade. Right up there with the Vietnam war memorial to the victims of lynching very sobering in your face, challenging kind of place, then go out to places I don't think are as much on the radar for people as far as Alabama mobile is a surprise mobile I call the little easy, because it's a lot like New Orleans, but it's tiny. It's much easier to navigate in. It's a lot of fun and then down to this beautiful beautiful Gulf. Shore beaches, the white sands, sugar sand beaches that I literally I been in Borussia of all places in the Indian Ocean on the beaches, and I came to the Gulf coast the next month. For some reason, it just worked out in the Gulf coast. Beaches were better than what I had seen in the Indian. Ocean Sept-. Beautiful I will back you up on that end in both a surprise part and the beautiful part. That will give you a good week from north the sound that

"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer. Even growing up as a for NYKANEN.

I've believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal before this decade is out of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. Why the Moon why Mars? Because it is humanity's destiny to strive to seek to find we will give NASA new focus and vision for future expiration. We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe to gain a foothold on the moon and prepare for new journey to the world's beyond our own that of course was JFK followed by President. George H W Bush in nineteen eighty nine and his son. George W Bush in two thousand four. Both bushes attempted to chart new courses for America to return to the moon. But these initiatives failed other space exploration plans of struggled to is Congress. The American people grappled with conflicts over money and namely it became difficult for taxpayers to justify spending hundreds of billions of dollars in space instead of funding urgent needs here on Terra Firma as a result the last time in American set foot on the moon was was the Apollo Seventeen mission in nineteen seventy two now in twenty twenty. That conflict has risen once again. The White House wants to put the first woman and the next man on the moon by twenty twenty four. That's four years ahead of an earlier NASA plan. President trump ordered the speed up in two thousand seventeen to make the optimist moon landing program. Nasa needs a Lunar Lander a spaceship designed to ferry astronauts from Lunar Orbit to the Moon's surface and back again late last month NASA awarded three contracts to private companies to build just such a lander in total the space agency. Funded almost a billion dollars worth of design and development. One of those contracts went to a team led by Jeff bazars his company blue origin. That team was awarded the largest of the three contracts. Almost six hundred million dollars though. Use It to design a lander somewhat like the one used in the Apollo program. Elon Musk's spacex one. A one hundred thirty five million dollar contract to work on a gigantic reusable lander spacex his lander which reportedly can carry one. Hundred tons of cargo is based on. Its starship spacecraft. Eventually the starship is intended to transport people to Mars The New York Times reports. The third contract for two hundred fifty million dollars went to a team led by Huntsville Alabama Company dianetics. The three companies have ten months to develop their lunar landers new definition of a space race. Anyone at that point NASA will have a clear idea of which lender they'll choose one prominent company. They didn't make the cut. Boeing. Nasa didn't say why it declined to award Boeing contract according to the Guardian but in December test flight of its star liner spaceship failed. That test flight had no crew aboard but the star liner was built with the intention of transporting astronauts to the International Space Station sending astronauts to the moon by twenty twenty four. He is fraught with technical organizational and financial challenges. Perhaps the toughest one is the cost. Nasr's twenty twenty budget is more than twenty billion dollars in twenty twenty one. That budget will have to increase by three billion dollars to fund the Lunar Lander according to the Guardian NASA administrator. Jim Breitenstein Stein said the agency expects Congress to fund the Optimist Moon landing mission despite the economic toll the corona virus is taken on the American economy. It's

S. acting navy secretary snow apologize for calling the ousted captain of the Theodore Roosevelt too naive or too stupid to be in command amid growing calls from Congress and former officers for him to resign here's a quote let me be clear I do not think that captain Brad crozier is naive nor stupid that's what Thomas moblie road on last night I think and always believe him to be the opposite of that I apologize for any confusion this choice of words may have caused I also want to apologize directly to captain crozier his family and the entire crew of the Theodore Roosevelt to repaint my remarks may have cost more than what you say what is it why did you say those words you you said it publicly as well yeah I mean it is like a what's up man you're kidding what does that mean it's probably just a gut reaction and a bit of a pandemic I mean I don't favor just give everybody a break during this time I don't know maybe we all need to be a little bit more sensitive than everybody little foreign freedom we all in the room we all need to be patient with each other right now mostly sparked a leadership crisis at the Pentagon with the audio recording surfaced of the speech he gave to the crew of the aircraft carrier which she you know such a bad thing so that the commander had to be fired for having circulated a memo calling for more help for his crew had been stricken by the corona virus outbreak on board yeah yeah the acting navy secretary's apology came soon after Donald Trump said last night he would not intervene in the situation and hinted he might reinstate the former Roosevelt commander captain Brad crozier mmhm I I don't I don't agree with that Dodge I still think it was a horrible move it was a very very bad bad judgment there was a real security risks that we had all our judgment yes he does he does a very poor job that's worse than being naive and stupid yes it is and maybe you should apologize his career as a quote his career prior to that was very good so I'm going to get involved and see exactly what's going on there because I don't want to destroy somebody for having a bad day well now see what trump said while stressing that crozier should not have circulated that memo okay but who knows what kind of call he would have made if it was actual I mean a lot of people do look at right now as war time and that that we are fighting a battle but who knows what kind of decision this whatever this guy would've made in the heat of actual combat as we know it I mean if he does this what else is he capable of doing you know what I mean it's respect cannot be taken well you're you're describing him worse than what the acting navy adwords I think it I think it's just unspeakable what he did I I really do I I I think that for so many reasons not only a safety issue but also just just common sense it tells me the guy just didn't have much common sense to know he was desperate but still it's kind of a stretch I mean this guy served this country for decades or are you are you are you starting to ease up on a little bit he's up on it now I don't know the whole story none of us do he did he did break the rules of going around the chain of command which you should have never done so you should have carried that further up the chain of command to get what he needed absolutely it revealed a few secrets that you shouldn't reveal when you're leading that kind of ship yes but he has served this country with the highest regard and I'm not gonna you know you have one bad day not referring to moblie enclosure the president added to good people they were arguing and law and I'm good I believe it or not and shuttling argument so I may have to look into this great detail and I'll try to figure out if he's able to do anything about it now in the recording of moblie speech on the board of the Roosevelt published by task and purpose military news website heckling can be heard from the crew during the speech what shows otherwise greeted with silence talking about moblie speech an apology to the crew of the ship mostly justified his decision to relieve the captain of command just last week on the announcer this four page memo requesting more helpful is cruel that it asking to be moved on to the short qualm and if it's circulating more than forty people I've seen that and it was seen as kind of a you know sidestepping the chain of command what you don't do when your you know driving and the captain of a nuclear ship like that what trump is thinking about getting involved in this and he says I don't want to see anybody you lot and then buys live record because of one band that that one bad day I don't know maybe it's realistic again unrealistic I've never been in the military never been close to it however I just kind of my opinion my view that you can't have a bad day in the

Banking on Voice - ENACOMM & Bank Independent

"Us about about the project and so what what does the Alexa skill that you guys have developed do? And what was the? What was the thinking behind? When we first started our conversations with an accom- we didn't know what to expect. We didn't even know what to do with really St- I think Stacy said it best. Is that so we started with the thought of? How can we take our typical telephone banking system? That's that technology has been around for four. Seems like forever and so we were like. How do we repurpose that into modern technology and modern use cases so partnering together with an Economy Fintech provider? They are really at true partnership here. We were the very first one to come out with a fully functioning Alexis skill in the community bank space. Now some of the larger institutions the international banks that are housed here in America or even some of the couple of super regionals they were already doing some of the s but really we felt like our customers were longing for that as well to be able to say. Hey if a bank of America or chase would have this type of service. Why can't wait? I see we have the same type of access to your systems so they came from a customer. Need they actually the customs approach to and also this. Will you a proactive and thought well? We need to get ahead of this before they do. It was really more proactive. Because of our customer base being very tech savvy and especially our newest market which is the Huntsville Alabama market. We felt like we need to make sure that in order for us to compete against the larger institutions especially from a tech perspective. We needed to be proactive in this space. So when I say fully functioning that's the differentiation between us and some of the other banks or credit unions that have that they may have an Alexa skill. But it's more informational sharing like where are we wears locations. What's our hours of operation? We really wanted it to be truly as said an extension of our other tools that we offer to art whether it'd be mobile or online or telephone so they log in and get account information for me. Personally I've got a college aid's daughter and so was the question we get from her. Hey Dad I need some money so then I can go and just by walking through the house. Tae Alexa Transfer money from account to my daughter's account so those are some of the use cases that we have and we're continuing to expand that working on some other use cases right now to expand as far as card management for the debit cards. The credit cards and those kind of things as we continue to move forward. I see okay focused on the the most common actions that people form on their accounts festival implemented those and then now you looking for the more advanced features those in as well. That's great okay. Great Stacey tells about the project from your side then what what was it like to Cra? Alexis go four bank whether any particular challenges that you had to face. And what advice would you give to someone? Who's WHO's looking to do the same. Whose is taking on a project to the signs. That's a great question because there is a specific answer that it's really got nothing to do with how we build a skill it has to do with multiple parties involved in the thing you have to look out for the difficulties run into is the larger companies involved Talked by Google Amazon Right Amazon. The company that is the keeper in the approver of these skills and so's Google on their side. I will go to that side of the house but Amazon. This is the first real step into a retail banking application type of thing right in my past i. I did this for Mobile APPs with apple when they first had their APP store open. Add it for banks and it's the same type of learning curve with working with Amazon going through the approval process Amazon not understanding how everyone thinks they understand how a bank works. And I'll say that just exactly the same. Everyone believes they understand. How Bank works when you work with. Community banks. That'S NEAT. Learn how they actually work and each one little different from another one and you can try to define a process for which you wanNA bring on these skills right for Elixir. Whatever but these skills for getting the weather has total different requirements than the skill for your banking and we had compliance issues. We have enrollment issues. We have Lincoln account issues. We have all these things you have to do and be compliant with on our side and actually I was walking Amazon through the process. Of sometimes you have to change the way you're thinking because this is not a weather APP. This is not a joke. Gap does not attribute this is banking and there are some things. The banks are already doing to link accounts that may be at to adjust your expectations. How Link Accounts Right? That's just one example and going through the approval process with Amazon and it different iterations. That's really probably. The most complex part of working new technologies into banks is yet. There's a third party provider like Amazon or Google. Who has to approve these things and has certain expectation on their side of how the system will work in. We have to really Kinda match the expectations and the realities. What a bank needs right to? Does that mean that there were those pushback on the on the platform side on the new Google side because he went meeting standards was it the other way round. What did you need things from them? They weren't providing up front. And you have to be kind of both. It's kind of both so the expectation that you're starting from scratch realized that a bank might already have a method for linking accounts for example in Kelly States. Bank independent already. Lincoln accounts through methodology in order to enable their voice banking on the phone system for that and so there are some things that instead of confusion users like it's a brand new system to create new pin number. You all this new stuff. Sometimes Caesar let them allow them to use what they already have and so it was sort of both. We have more things than they expected. Amazon's system wasn't really built to take an existing system. Like what we had at the same time. You know there are some things we have to come up to snuff on on voice engagement right conversational banking conversational. Technology is different than a menu driven technology in Kelly. Had said we're reiterated extending what we're doing on the voice baking side telephone banking but it's extending the feature functions but the way you engage with it is different. So there's a learning curve on our side to to make sure you have the conversational structures. Correct your engagement that so it was both sides. This is very typical of bringing in a new technology into an existing market place. That has its own high level of rules right. There's a high bar a ruling compliance and you have another system as brand new that is trying to create rules of compliance rights. And so we put those two together in. This is typical this. This is exactly how it was with mobile APPS. And I think that's what you're gonNA see. It's GonNa have that ramp right now. It's early in the curve for adoption and over time as voices getting across all these other channels and the software whether it's Amazon or Google on all these channels whether it's in your smart tv or on your phone it's going to accelerate. The friction is gonNA remove overtime when it sounds like they would have lended as as much from the experiences as you guys have. That's going to streamline things for everyone the projects that come along in the future exactly my question around that was about the the iteration of this is kind of new and we got a lot of the ground truth from the feedback from users and looking at the data of course financial transactions quite private and a bank's not going to want to publicize those will hand them over to supplies in the same way as maybe health data. So how did you get that signal back? That's a find out whether the user interaction was working. And how did you guys work together to to solve that problem like you said? One of the biggest concerns with this was around security and especially traditional banking where we're not always the the ones that are willing to step out and do things so from especially from security and privacy perspective because that is paramount to who we are as an institution to ensure that we are taking care of our customers and making sure that their information secure safe and that they are comfortable not only them but then also with a stacey said our regular regulators and auditors and those things pile up over and over again to make sure that that we have the right security protocols in place and so that was some learning curve for both US and Amazon that we all had to mature and continue to grow as far as making sure that we have the right information we partner with our processing companies Jack Henry and associates and so they do a fantastic job of having a pathway for us to get to our information securely safely as well so with our connectivity points between in a calm and Jack Henry that is very tightly controlled. We manage it with monitor it. We reporting we have security protocols that are in place between all of us to ensure that is safe for our customers. Massoni went to Jack Henry Do. Where did they come into this? Yeah Sure Jack. Henry is the company that houses our customer information as a whole and so they have an open banking platform that we're able to connect to and be able to partner with the fantasy like the end of the world to be able to safely securely have access to their customer account information you can anonymous data and Sharon Saddam. Okay right so there's a way to share it without revealing the details of the people. Are I in this talk about the voice banking how it's being used and I saw one example on your website believe about bank independent Kuzma? Who's using the Alexa skill right now? It's eighty nine years old. That's fantastic Zurich. Tell us about that. And the the interest made on his or her life. Sure after we went live with this we were live several lines and we really wanted to see who was using and honestly we knew because this is new technology. We weren't expecting a hockey stick type of acceptance and usage of this tool out of the gate and so it has been a slow growth and kind of leveling but again we wanted to be out there early and this is exactly why because you know. The mission of our institution is to make a positive difference in people's lives and this is a prime example. Where we've done that. So as we begin to look one of our most active users we reached out to Kim specifically into. Can you tell us why you're using it? And the first words out of his mouth. Were you changed my life. And which can you explain that in so this gentleman was eighty nine years old? He had macular degeneration so from his perspective. He couldn't really manages finances. Just because of the vision issues vision issue. And so now he's like you now have control of my personal finances again by doing voice banking and he can control that here. What's going on? What's going on manages money in the way that he wants to be able to manage his

"To us in Huntsville and she's asking I heard you talking about getting your kids off to college when we did actually yes we did that's going to be me in two years of my twins are now juniors in high school we're about to begin visiting different colleges and I'd like to know how many different colleges you looked at during your searches and is there a better way to go about visiting colleges to learn the most about the schools in the area as I read that. I think about for years we've always talked about family travel but now I guess we've graduated I go to college college torture simply not college guidance experts a lot we can say here so I don't really want to go from well I think the first thing is I would get my mind set I don't usually say this but I would say act like a tourist when you do this because I think it's really important to treat it as a road trip and to treat it as a fun and I I really do and I think that you need to get outside of the campus area when you think about it you're gonna be looking at schools for hopefully at least four years get out and about and see what is in the surrounding area I think it's important the student looks at the school from those aspects as well because they're gonna be there for a plea for years and to save money I highly recommend staying in hotels outside of the campus area we have found that they are less expensive and they do force you to look at get to know the general manager a little bit because when you go back for parents we think he might actually get a discount quickly yes you know something I will say that I did our youngest son certainly benefited from many of the school of business that his older brother was interested in so that helped him and us for sure the second time around well it's something to do with our older son to make the process a little less stressful for him he shares my passion for barbecue so I took him to Memphis on a business trip and we enjoyed some great barbecue at the rendezvous and also one should tires were I think that's a local landmark where the cooking oil something like a hundred years old but that's another story for the time anyway what we were there we also made an appointment at the university of Memphis a school he had no plans to attend but allowed him to go through the Tor without any pressure he was able to ask questions as they came to him to see things that interested him and that experience eventually helped him to be better prepared and also as well for the ten colleges that we visited with him so yeah that's a great example of again bringing it back to trying just really have some fun with it as well. this is cool so that this lower the pressure or next emails from Tom listens to us in Vancouver he's asking why do some cruise lines a tour operators charges supplemental for solo travel I'm single and can't always ask a friend to travel with me to help me save money is there a way around this unfair policy will turn. some thoughts on this and we also asked our producer Valerie to look into it a merry where you wanna start well she did a great job helping us research this I know you really can't get around get around it if you see it and it exists however what you can do a solo demographic is much of a solo traveller demographic is much larger these days it's a lot easier travel companies have gotten on board with enticing solo travelers and that market so you'll find cruise companies that will waive that single supplement fee you'll find tour companies willing to waive that you know you have to do your research sometimes you have to be willing to travel kind of last minute you may have to be willing to travel shoulder season if you can only travel in the summer and you want to get around that you definitely have to do your research but it is possible more and more today travel companies are beginning to really anti so what I I know. we certainly want to attract a solo travelers we talk about that but some other companies out there that are not affiliated with the intrepid travels one classic journeys is another we've had Bruce Poon tip on with G. adventures they do a nice job with it I can take it now that's going to be for a younger audience but I think he might be somebody will yeah is track but has a lot of solo travelers and again you may pay with them sometimes a single supplement fee but much lower fees they have and if you're willing to have a roommate you don't pay anything on the older side our country walkers will be another crazy thing extractions that you don't pay right around have around the area we've got more emails I think we're gonna hold those will do more next week folks so please keep sending them to us at our end world travel dot com and we will get to those are for sure right now I want to thank Tom and Lisa further questions today you can send us your travel questions or comments or stories.

"This L marks of Huntsville, Alabama. Hey, mark. How are you? Hey, dave. I'm doing great and pleasure talking with you today. Sir. What's up? Well, I'm fifty seven year old retired military guy. Government contractor down here in Huntsville, and my wife, and I last month just completed baby step two took us four years. Congratulations. Thank you, sir. Turnham baby step three. I guess my question is kind of twofold. We are in a house. That's not our forever home. And when we get done with baby step three it took me a while to kind of go through and get my investments going between my wife, and my IRA's and Mike 4._0._1._K we have about one hundred ninety thousand investments good. My question is should I increase the investments and not just pay the minimum on the house? Or should we still try to pay off this house, even though it's not offer? Well, I would do the baby steps in order, even though. Your forever home, by the way. Thank you for your service. Twenty year. And you've got that coming. Actually did about twenty eight years. So yeah. My military time from that. And I have some via disability that I get great. Okay. Cool. Well, then what I would do is when you finish baby. Step three would start baby steps. Four five and six run. Simultaneous four is fifteen percent. No more. No, more of your income going into retirement. You've got a really good star couple hundred grants not a bad start. And then if you have kids that you're paying for college, that's baby. Step five other kids involved. No. Done. I mean, we have our son, but he's in his thirties family in South Carolina. Baby step five 'cause there's no, okay. So babysit force fifteen percent of your income going into retirement any money you can find above that throw it at the house. Now, here's what will happen when you sell the house, and you move to the quote forever house, which I'm not sure there's ever been one of those. But. Anyway, nobody stays forever in these houses. We don't think we're going to. But you know, if you sell it, and you've paid it off or you paid it way down. They're going to give you a check at closing. Money's not going away. And the worst case scenario is is that it ends up being your forever house, and it's paid for. Right. And so once it's paid off. Then I would start doing a additional investing at baby steps seven, and I would make some of that investing non retirement because you're probably going to add that money for your additional. If you move up in a house, you'd need some money. In addition to the sale because your cell the one you move in pay cash for the one you land in quote, unquote at retirement, hopefully forever, and I and if you want to have some with that. But I I want you to take that one nine just keep piling on their fifteen percent of your household income. What is your household income? Twenty two hundred fifty thousand a year. Well, done very well done. So fifteen percents only twenty grand a year. Okay. And if you got no dad except the house fifteen percent twenty grand a year. You still got plenty of wiggle room in this budget to chunk on this house. Then Wendy, you think you'll move to the quote forever house? We've been talking about it probably within seven years or so plus or minus a few years, depending on how things work with the with the contracting world with the government, and is the location that keeps you from doing that or something else. It's primarily location. Huntsville's a great great town. Great city. But you know, we we enjoy the eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina. Okay. She mountains. Okay. So that's like that's like retirement when you're done doing your contracting work in Huntsville, seven eight years that is going to be your retirement place. Then. Okay. Cool. Very cool. And so house price might not go. What's the house? You're in worth. We as a matter of fact, we just recently had had looked at an praise and we refinance to a fifteen year and it appraised for three forty five. Okay. Well, you turn out in house for three forty five. Right. So if you got the thing paid off its loss. It just increases your cash flow until you make the move. But and you probably will have it paid off within the seven years. I'll bet you do your income with the situation you describe to me it all you know. It's just like military. It's all about discipline the vote, but you can do it again. Thanks for your service. And thank you for your call. Jason is with us. Jason and Tampa. Hi, jason. How are you? Having done. Good about yourself better than I deserve. What's up?.

"The mayor in birmingham i don't agree with all his politics thing is a great guy i think he is doing some good stuff and i think he really cares about birmingham and i think you know battle up in huntsville i don't agree with everything he says but i think he's a good guy and he really cares about huntsville and he really cares about alabama you say well i mean so here we go mayor battle went from being a mayor now he's running for the governor of your state right so it starts at local politics in a lot of cases it does that you do have the outlier who comes in as a businessman or or something else and and tries to insert himself and that's okay the system allows for that it allows it for two different ways you know start at ground level and work your way up or or you know make your success in other areas and then come in which is fine either way here's the thing i think maybe we in alabama need to have a mindset that goes beyond state what you know there's advice i have heard early on when you when it came when i was not married and when it came to dating you know don't just date someone because hey they look like they're fun or or cute or whatever date someone who's marriage potential don't ever waste your time dating someone just for the fun of it i mean if that's not your goal if your goal is ultimately marriage than date someone who who could fulfil that early on and don't otherwise you're just wasting your time same thing with politics get someone who if you saw you could see them going further whether it's into a a a greater state level of a greater position of power or even beyond our governor a lot of presidents come from governorships mhm we really should be thinking hey what if after this person is governor they go on to be the president why can that not happen for heaven's sakes bill clinton from the state of arkansas went onto the white house.
