"They waited out snow and wind for two days at the south coal camp, which was at 25,900 feet. On May 28th was support from ang nima, Alfred Gregory and George Lowe, norgay and Hillary pitched a tent at 27,900 feet to wait until morning to continue their journey. Gregory Lowe and nima returned to camp after the tent had been pitched. The next morning, Hillary and norgay continued their journey wearing 30 pound packs. Hillary saw a path to follow through a crack between The Rock wall and ice and after passing through, they reached the 29,028 foot summit of chameleon at 1130 a.m.. Together, they spent about 15 minutes at the summit and Hillary took the famous photo of norgay with an ice axe at the summit. Hilary declined to have his photo taken so the only picture of the first people to ever reach the summit was of tenzing norgay. Snow had continued falling so their steps were covered, but they eventually made it down where low met them with hot soup. One amazing thing was Hillary and norgay's refusal to share who actually reached the summit first during initial interviews. Colonel hunt even stated they reached it together as a team. In norgay's 1955 autobiography, norgay eventually revealed that they were roped 6 feet apart and that Hillary actually did step onto the summit first. Fun fact, norgay was able to speak several languages, but he couldn't read or write so his autobiography was ghost written by James Ramsey ullman. Upon returning to England, Edmund Hillary and John hunt were both knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, tenzing norgay was celebrated and given a George medal, but sadly wasn't knighted because it's very rare for knighthood to be the bestowed on a non British citizen. Still, after the accomplishment, norge was able to open up a company to help provide trekking adventures in the Himalayas, and it's now run by his son. Now, you may be wondering what this has to do with Asian American history. Well, first off, we just wanted to start by sharing the history of climbing chome lungma for context. But on May 24th, 2010, Wong Lee reached the summit of trauma longa. She became the first Chinese woman and the first Asian American to successfully reach the summit of trauma longa. Not only that, but she also was the first Asian American and Chinese woman to have climbed the 7 summits and skied both the North Pole and South Pole, which is known as the explorers Grand Slam. She started her adventure in 2003 by summiting Kilimanjaro, then in 2005, she climbed elbrus in 2007, she reached the summit of Denali, the karstens pyramid, or puncak Jaya, and the peak of vinson massif. In 2008, she skied across the South Pole, reached the peak of Aconcagua and skied across the North Pole. Then she completed her journey by reaching the summit of chamoun. The history of chama longma, or Mount Everest, is a long one. And thousands have now climbed the summit. But it really could not have happened without the hard work of.

"James was born in london but as an adult he lived just outside of berkeley springs west. Virginia although it wasn't called that back then in fact the whole region was just part of the virginia colony the first successful and lasting british foothold in north america. So when you think of him as growing up near the potomac river just be sure to imagine him in colonial attire and the river was a major part of his life to although not in the way anyone could have guessed they might have assumed he would be a fisherman or maybe run a ferry to the other side for travelers passing through but james was more mechanically minded than that. It was a family interest really earlier in life. He had lived in maryland where he helped a cousin named benjamin to run a water powered mill and while that might seem primitive by the technological standards of our day and age these were complex machines back then and they required specific skills to design and build and james had those skills in the virginia colony. He began to acquire a reputation as a builder even while running than in for travelers. One of those people who pass through was a man named george who took a liking to james and contracted him to build a house on some land that he owned in the area while they were talking though. James showed george a model of a new kind of boat that he dreamed up. One that could navigate the shallow rocky potomac with the help of a unique technology. Polls and because of georgia's unique reputation. James was soon put in a position that would allow him to actually build that boat. Oh and this george for those of you. Keeping track of things was george washington that was seventeen. Eighty four soon enough. James found himself serving as the superintendent of a brand new endeavor. The potomac company which was charged with improving the navigational qualities of the river. You know making it easier for boats to travel which in turn made it easier for goods to be imported and exported. It was good for the whole economy. And james made his mark to the company built at least five canals to work around major rough spots in the river they also worked to remove rocks and silt from other parts making much safer for riverboats and in the process it ended up linking commerce and trade on the east coast with communities farther west like pennsylvania and ohio but there was always that boat that he had dreamed of now originally it had included a large paddle wheel to power forward and a pair of enormous polls. That could be used to push the ship around as it traveled the trickier spots on the potomac and remember his entire career happened. Because washington loved the promise of that model boats but after initial testing james realized that the vessel would need a stronger way of propelling itself forward so he turned to a power source that was known in other fields but untried on ships steam. Then after two years of building the body of the ship and also designing and building a small steam engine out of iron coils. James had what he needed on a cold winter day in early december of seventeen eighty seven james and his steamship chugged out into the potomac near shepherdstown just north of harpers ferry and the demonstration was a success. Those who showed up to watch were wowed by the site of a riverboats being pushed along not by paddles but by a forceful jets of hot steam but alas in a turn of events that seemed all too common for early inventors. James found himself facing another man. Jon finch who had dreamed up a similar mechanism and for a year. The pair of men had a very public war of words over the matter in the end. It was finch who won in america and it was only by moving to england and filing patents. There that james was able to get his name on official documents tying him to the creation. The most amazing thing to me about james ramsey's story just might be the fact that he did all of this in seventeen eighty seven amir generation after the american revolutionary war. Pretty cool if you ask me. But what. I find most intriguing of all. Is that despite clearly. Inventing the steamboat. I history has pretty much forgotten him. Putting all the praise on robert fulton and his eighteen o seven creation of the north river. Steamboats a big accomplishment for sure but one that stood on the shoulders of james ramsey and his own design two decades earlier. History can sure be picky often choosing the wrong hero or inventor or whatever but above all it can sure be curious. This episode was made possible by amc.

"It's all things considered on W N Y. C. I'm Shawn Carlson. Indoor Dining will return to the five boroughs on Friday. That's just in time for Valentine's Day. It's usually one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants. And even though occupancy will be limited to 25%, several owners say, Well, that is better than nothing. We'll take anything at this point. We're like beggars in the street. Whatever you want to give me I'll take. But many servers and bartenders say the prospect of serving massless patrons indoors makes them pretty nervous, even though their newly eligible for the cove in 19 vaccine Wi sees James Ramsey has been speaking to some of these workers. He joined Rebecca, You borrow for the latest episode of Consider this a news podcast from NPR and W N Y C. Here's that conversation. James. This is going to be New York City's second time giving indoor dining a try. It was reinstated in September before shutting down again in December. So can you give us a sense of what the experience was for workers during those few months serving diners indoors and If it's affected, how they feel this time around. I mean, I think it's making them feel nervous about it right now. Because back in September, when indoor dining became an option, you could still eat outdoors and it was warm and a lot of the service that I spoke with said that there was sort of a market difference between the people who were coming out and eating outside on the patio and the people who wanted to go sit inside with their mask off and eat. You know, I spoke to one server named Scott, who said he just kind of came away, disillusioned by the amount of people who would choose to go inside. And act as though they were not still a pandemic or not. I'm trying to like Bring you fries in a burger and a beer so you can feel some normalcy. But you're extremely me about this burger being not hot enough for something, you know, like, literally had people like yelling in my face. We should add that all of the restaurant workers you spoke to ask that we don't reveal their last name or a place of employment for fear of retribution. So is the prospect of being eligible for a vaccine changing any of their minds. I spoke to a server named Samantha who said that you know, she appreciates theon Pertuan itty to get a vaccine. But obviously if I got my first dose today, I would have to wait three weeks to get another dose. And then two weeks after that for efficacy, So in what world does it make sense? To be opening up when literally no one in the restaurant industry will be vaccinated. At that point, indoor dining has been open in the rest of the state at 50% capacity. Since the summer and through much of the pandemic dining indoors has been viewed as a risky activity because by necessity, eating and drinking requires patrons to remove their masks. Has there been any research that changed the conventional wisdom on the risk presented by indoor dining? Um well. Last December, the state actually put out a report saying that, you know, apparently 1.5% of covert cases between September and the end of November, And this is one indoor dining was allowed in the city that only 1.5% of cases were coming from bars or restaurants versus like over 70% of cases coming from inside people's homes. Now in the fine print of that. This'll is coming from something like 46,000 surveys that people voluntarily gave to contact tracers. So it's not at all a complete picture of covert spread in the state. But I think that restaurant groups are obviously desperate to keep their business is alive. Kind of pointed to this and said, You know, look, look, a restaurant is not going to get you sick. You're going to get sick from other people in your house a same time. Epidemiologists that we've spoken to a Gothamist have said that they wouldn't take the risk. James. Do you know how diners and patrons feel about the return of indoor dining? I think there's been a big change in attitude in New York City's since the start of the pandemic where you know what used to be. I am buying an omelet from a for profit business has now become, you know, I am supporting a local civic institution. People feel this desire to make sure that their favorite restaurants Survived the pandemic. I mean, the comptroller's office has said that up to half of New York City restaurants and bars could permanently close because of this the problem and I've spoken to, you know a lot of servers and what they've requested is Look, if you really want to support these restaurants, the thing that we request that you do is order take out. Directly from a restaurant. Don't go through Grubhub or any kind of third party app. And even if you're picking up tip 20% at a minimum, that's James Ramsey, Digital producer for W. And my C and Gothamist in conversation with Rebecca Ibarra. The World Health Organization says it has wrapped up an investigation into Cove in 19 in China. The goal was to learn about the origins of the pandemic and here to tell us what they found US. NPR's global health correspondent Michael into Cliff, Hi there. Hi. What exactly has the W H o team been doing in China? So are the team includes more than a dozen researchers, and they've been in Wuhan, visiting all the places critical in the early days of the pandemic. So they went to the Who needs seafood market. They also talked to first known covert patients and the doctors that treated them and they met with Corona virus researchers. And what did they learn? Well, the W. Joe hasn't issued a report of their scientific findings. Basically, the team only discuss the main conclusions at a press conference today, one of those was about whether or not the virus leaked from a laboratory, specifically the Wuhan Institute of Biology. We heard a lot about that lab early in the pandemic. We're scientists studied Corona viruses. Tell us more about what they learned. Yeah. So scientists pretty much agree that the virus that causes cov 19 stars Cov two came from bats, and at this lab researchers had extracted several other coronavirus from bats inside China. And so there's been a theory that perhaps the virus infected a researcher and then spread Cove in 19 to the community. At the press conference to be, Joe said, this hypothesis is very unlikely. Okay, So they knocked down the idea that this came from a lab. Did they say what evidence there is to rule that out Right now, Ari. It appears that the evidence comes primarily from a visit to the Wuhan Institute of Virology itself. Wh o team said they had a long frank discussion with researchers there, and the institute provided quote, detailed description of all their work on coronaviruses. Dr. Lee Han Wannian led the Chinese part of the investigation, he said through an interpreter..

N. Y. C. two one two four three three nine six nine to show me where you're focusing on in your reporting on this I myself am focusing on bringing accessibility in transit issues to the air at least once a week for these past few weeks I've been doing so and I'll continue doing so for the next few weeks right now actually I'm working on a story where I spent a little I spent a day commuting around with man whose twenty eight years old he lives in in would his name is Brian Velasquez and he's blind and so he was showing me how he gets around the city using a lot of apps on his phone that I think are really neat and I'm excited to tell people about so that that'll come out in a story in a couple of weeks from now Brian himself is very excited about the apps that he uses on his phone in fact he only got a smartphone in twenty eighteen so this is still fairly new for him the new technology that some of these apps have in terms of GPS and even video conferencing with live people on the other end to assist people who are blind so that's very neat coming out a couple weeks I hope they work better than the Iowa caucus apps and she needed the MTA at least going to anti Byford has acknowledge it needs to do better in terms of accessibility but they still are refurbishing some stations without adding elevators aren't they that's right and this actually there are several lawsuits that the MTA is currently embroiled in a good considering accessibility issues there's one lawsuit that's regarding a subway station in the Bronx that underwent the station renovations and ultimately those renovations didn't include wheelchair accessibility and the court ruled last March almost a year ago now that renovations trigger accessibility obligations under the ADA regardless of the cost but that case is still ongoing it's still an active case because the MTA is arguing that they should be exempt from those obligations if they can prove that it's technically in feasible to install an elevator so that's the argument that they're taking that case is still ongoing can you go one step deeper into that what makes it technically in feasible in some cases as opposed to just a lack of will so this is what the MTA is having to prove in some way in court that either it would be technically unfeasible because of the way that that station is designed to because of the depth because of in some cases the way that the sidewalk is configured they're arguing that there isn't enough room to create an entire space for a cab for an elevator to exist there so that's what they're arguing in court we'll see what the judge there ends up eventually ruling but there's actually another case where it's challenging the empties failure to maintain the elevators that do exist in subway stations and that case has made it through discovery through the expert process back in October I sat in federal court house for several hours as the judge heard arguments for hours and at the time the judge said he'd have a ruling in thirty to sixty days were now to just beyond that window so we could hear ruling any day now in that case we're talking about mass transit accessibility in New York City with W.

"That Israel has ever hosted and they're here for a ceremony at Israel's Holocaust memorial which is to mark the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz but this event is also billed as an event to fight the growth of anti semitism around the world today and Israeli officials are encouraging countries to adopt the definition of antisemitism that considers some criticism of Israel as anti semitism but a lot of this is being overshadowed by a very big dispute between Russia and Poland about World War two history which is interesting is both of those countries were victims of of **** Germany right so what what are they are getting about here well the argument is about a pact that the Soviet Union and Germany signed before the war it was a secret pact to divide up Poland the Soviets invaded the east the Germans invaded the west and that set off the second World War in the polls do not forget that but Putin has been downplaying that packed in and for the mayhem he wants the world to focus on what the Soviet state at the end of the war which was liberate Auschwitz in Poland and he even recently falsely blamed Poland for starting World War two so this is a long running dispute between the countries and Poland didn't invite prudent to the commemoration at Auschwitz next week and meanwhile someone who's very close to put in a Jewish community leader organized the ceremony today in Jerusalem where Putin will be a keynote speaker but the Polish president is boycotting it also how is is Israel hosting all this dealing with this dispute Israel's trying to to remain neutral but the truth is that Israel has had its own dispute with Poland the government there has downplayed the role that many poles played in the murder of Jews and prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu try to resolve the dispute with Poland and they signed a joint declaration about the Holocaust a couple years ago and then Israeli Holocaust historians were furious because they said that that statement actually endorsed a false Polish narrative and so now in Israel you have internet was critics concerned that Netanyahu in Israel are giving put in a red carpet treatment at the ceremony today and you know states for Putin to perhaps offer his own version of of World War two history but you have to understand the furnace and you know you know this is real politique because couldn't plays a big role next door in the Syrian civil war Netanyahu talks to to Putin frequently about it and it's on Yahoo plays up his ties with food and it's part of his reelection campaign then we should focus on on the victims and and survivors as as well who and they're still many left right now I mean getting very old we should say right Israel is home to the most Holocaust survivors in the world there were reports that some of them weren't initially invited to the ceremony now they are attending about hundred of them but some Israelis are saying that this is just a big Holocaust party that there's too much focus on the world leaders and not much focus on the actual genocide and yours Daniel Estrin injures thanks you're welcome this is NPR news and this is WNYC in New York I'm Richard hake stay tuned coming up on morning edition tomorrow space axis set to launch a constellation of satellites the company says it'll provide internet all over the world but critics are worried the world space traffic management isn't up to the task will have that story coming up mass transit looking okay this early hour we do expect sunshine today with the sunrise at seven fourteen highs near forty six degrees it'll still feel colder with the wind mostly cloudy tonight lows around thirty five degrees and then tomorrow Friday should be partly sunny highs near fifty support for W.

"Yeah Warren zero believe warm there's a deposition taking place in the in all the lawsuits that are flying between James Ramsey in the university and Rick Patino on the university and David Grissom who they said a lot of really strong prominent jobs here in the city has been chairman of the universe a little board of trustees still board members no longer the chairman he's being asked questions by hand the old father she's an iron fist seizing CA plan yeah this is Lamar core lawyer and going on right here and you are under oath when you do a deposition you're under oath must tell the truth and then David Grissom kind of aware of little well I didn't Hey here's something you shouldn't he's asking any answers and then later in the segment here he's he can't tell the name of someone and then they sort of back tracks or or jumps on a different trails just rather interesting an old father asking the questions David Grissom under oath answering what one thing to doctor Ramsey ever prevents the board of trustees from finding out once they wanted to find it out what one thing the first thing I can think of because the sewers Regis is that did not disclose to the school board that one of his board members paid off the women in connection with the service what board member you're talking about when you're under oath you have no choice he told me that that a member of this board was cash source for paying off the strippers and strippers has ever disclose that to a small bowl for who is this with that you're talking about I'm not because this is unlikely you don't get to make those decisions can we take a short no no that's what happens this is great this is what happens when things are going your way all the sudden the lawyer intervenes he is gonna we need to take a break he's got to put your whatever they just they don't say anything to try and stop the proceedings listening in old father no I am not involved in the area of the stripper I don't know the history of it and I don't know all the signs with his hands around right Mr Chris I'm trying to resolve the issue for will all I will take you up on that and on my terms let me get there well let me with the stance of the question I can't answer for heaven's sakes come on this guy just got through telling you that I will get to but on my terms you had a conversation with doctor Ramsey that you've just alluded to regarding a member of his Ford who was a cash source somehow to the strippers start to live summarize that correctly and in that conversation to doctor Ramsey tell you who the member of the board was no so you couldn't tell me even a few of you had no name to give me the one that we go through that little charade exactly what we go through a whole charade when in the beginning you made it sound like I know what I'm not going to tell you I'm not going to tell you only to say right then as I don't know who it is anyway it is that was sounded kind of shady that's all just like a change in the weather in the middle of a depth closes she can't do you are the S. warranted sworn testimony and anyway that's just going to be interesting to see it's on his right are running to that U. of L. as buying Jewish hospital today when one of James Ramsey's biggest problems was buying real estate it was like what what's happening we university yeah well I don't believe for a woman to Michael Moore will one more time here let's see where where else can we spend some of the schools money will that apartment complex over their own goals with late why are we doing that they don't answer the question the sign here is like on match when radar would say that the colonel Blake the sign right here is this you don't want to know what's on the paper to sign right here hello go fishing pay lake what but were university yeah just by and that's what we got into all kinds of odd things Jewish hospital of course is a teaching vessel for the university level and so went out you know the with the city doesn't need to the hospital to fail so there's a there's controversy now because there's a fifty million dollar loan some legislators in the state like way hold on older role slow your older so we'll see how this story plays out we'll talk about it more in the four o'clock news but it's rather ironic that James Ramsey the very same person who was involved in state governments way back in the day or in the Paul Patton administration it was James RM Z. who came up with the notion of sweeping funds that were intended to go into the pensions and sweeping them over to other things that the state needed to where they needed money under Paul Patton's administration our pension crisis can be tied to those very decisions way back then during the administration and James Ramsey holding the pan right there and as far as we all know he was the guy that came up with the idea of sweeping away money that was supposed to go to pensions that's what the word toll after each of the messes that have happened since then that it all started right there that was the spawn of the all of our pension crisis so there's a lot of interesting things going on in this old watch this space we'll see what happens next and you know David Grissom he's a guy who can't pronounce nearly been the ponies name a doctor neatly than the proof deal well stocked and the management approved Dr Ben Ben the deported I watch it a welcome the eighteenth president of the university of local delivery of the print out I bet you can't pronounce deposition either from the Campbellsville university level traffic.

"Edge but if there's sex acts monies exchange at I think that pretty much satisfies the definition of prostitution okay all right so the bottom line is we have former president of the board saying that the former president of the university told him that the tree in the and of course for his part Ramsey is accusing Grissom of lying so here the first is accusing Ramsey of several financial crimes and which is why Grissom was being deposed in the first place it's for that lawsuit right well it it to my back to the point so I either Ramsey's lying uhhuh or David Grissom is lying uhhuh why would David Grissom make something like that up it seems awfully specific to me because it's it because but here's the thing here's what I'm getting at discuss this also makes him look bad because you you're saying all the president told me that yeah trustee paid for the strippers you don't ask who it was not you know he was the guides him look bad too he was open he looks good in this he was kind of brought in to be the hatchet man right to kind of clear things out help that process he was the guy the Bevan put on the board so when you have a chance to I Hey a red flag when someone just told me about payment and people are wanting to the sector coaches are the money's coming from maybe I should mention this yeah you're not asking because this is a major violation I don't I don't know with some of this this lawsuit I mean what do you guys think happens because I mean doesn't the NC a a go or maybe the NCAA already knew that but I mean doesn't the NCAA go ha we we should take another look I'm not sure they're going to revisit this punishment if they thought there was more out there they would have closed it if I'm a little I'm still worried about the Brian Bolland stuff more so now yeah yeah I know but still I just this whole thing but doesn't that to me I I read that story and I was like you know what this is perfect this is a perfect example of the culture of past leadership at the university it was really bad it was really bad I mean thank goodness now for you know a president been a booty and some of the others that have come in and I think they're in the process of you know cleaning all this up and of course you know it all new athletic director staff all that kind of stuff everything is new but man this does not look good on the program at all especially from that time period no because there were so many rumors flying around and now you hear this and it's just like wow what a what an absolute mess well the in effect you about any any going forward what is the what the way I I I look at this and this is just from my perspective I don't have any more knowledge than anyone else you sit at home reading the story right is that from the athletic department's perspective they've they've purged everything they can purge Pacino's gun George is gone most of the jury each administrators are gone that that had any sort of tangible tied to the incident but IT known his staffer garden so I've got bins Tyree in there who is basically made it clear that he's the new sheriff in town and anybody who has any remote thought of doing anything like that can go ahead but their stuff a copier box and exit the facility right so I think from that perspective things are above board clear but would still trying to sort out the the mess the James Ramsey left behind as apparently we're discovering there's multiple layers to this and maybe one generally unpleasant when that's going to take us back to that error unfortunately the time to do the copier box would have been before Brian don't even set foot on campus now but that didn't happen those people just made quite a little nest for themselves and ruin the a lot of people's situations in the process did they not so it ruined banner for us all together none of them anyway good riddance right all right ask what you you Sir can go eat some chocolate listen.
