"This is coming from someone who going into the season, my prediction was Connecticut, going into the playoffs, obviously my prediction wasn't Connecticut, but I'm a hillside or so I'm going to ride it to the end. It was very clear that Vegas had the horsepower to get to the finals and run through it. What I think we've seen is a drop off from Connecticut. They've hit their peak, they're no longer at it, we're not seeing a historic run like we saw from Chicago last year where there was ups and downs and then they just tore through the playoffs. But at the end of the day, is it too much? I know you're going to say. But it almost feels like last night was an embarrassment of a game. Like it felt like a walk through, not a game, and I know I've used that phrase too many times of recent. But it just, it looked bad at times. I mean, I was really disappointed myself. I just was like, just those little things that they hang their hat on weren't necessarily happening. And this isn't like I'm coming hard at Connecticut or Kurt Miller. I'm not. I just was like, Connecticut, I hold on a pillar of what this team is and what they do. And is it too unrealistic at times, you know? Because and again, they don't have a point guard. They lose Jasmine Thomas, who I don't think has been talked about enough, how big of a loss that is to be where you are right now. And to struggle to shoot the ball the way the guard play has with Connecticut as of late. You know, like your manufacturing points any way you possibly can, you're having to rely on this defense and just this grit that how far can that take you? I mean, I love it and I embrace it personally and for my own methodology of a coach, but against a team like Las Vegas that is absolutely playing like an all star superstar team. How far can that actually take you? And I think I don't think that I don't think that we can forget that when we talk about Connecticut long after this season has done regardless of how many games this goes to or how this ends up, we can not forget that this Connecticut sun team, we never, ever, ever fully got to see them at a 100%. In the last few years, we never did. John Clark was out Alyssa Thomas was out. Then you had Jasmine Thomas. Again, I know she's not the superstardom of the other ones, but she's still your facilitating point guard floor general. And we never got to see the Connecticut sun at a 100% as to who this team was designed and laid out to be. And to me, that is really disappointing. Sorry, I'm going on a tangent back to your point about last night. Yeah, it just, it just felt sad for me, I guess, is just what I was seeing. I just felt like either this team has just given all they can, and they don't have it anymore, or I don't know. I still don't know exactly what happened. I don't know. I don't know how on earth it's physically possible to go down zero and two to Vegas and have a chance in this. I just don't. And not even like, look, end of the day, it's tough enough to win three in a row. It's tough enough when the odds are set against you. What Vegas is doing right now is just playing their brand of basketball. And in the finals, I talked about it on the Connecticut sun. Side sun. Oh my God, I can't even talk. On the Connecticut side, I think they're both trying like both of them kind of just said batten down the hatch.

Maybe that you can plug into but is that here. That's not here right now. No it's not gonna mind that will will be continuing to lower our Our footprint within this industry you know continually in and making big improvements in you know independently so The healthy future and we have the problem is a mere exactly right once you start getting politicians of all sorry kind of mandating you know whether it's you know their carbon footprint this that by twenty fifty two when she started. I mean you're kind of force yourself to go down as down. This road really detached from reality or realistic expectation on what you actually can do Everyone likes these goals here in it. Everyone likes this and that but are the realistic And if you are pursuing them are you screwing up system. Have just like in california to people's homes to cool. I mean whatever so. It's it is a scary situation where it's like you want to stop and think and realize on a local i i get what we wanna go. Get what you're saying but there's a lot to that that you really don't understand what you're talking about. I mean i do. I do have faith in the human race to get it done to get it fixed. You know there's a lot of hypocrisy out there. There's a lot of autism media man it. Yeah yeah But there's a there's we're all kind of contrarians out.

If you go into starbucks you'll say how environmentally friendly and Unconsciously are when they're harvest in the the bean coffee. Well they think about that when the pumping gas in the car and thinking. Where did this gas come from. Because like encana canada's got problem where in alberta and the likes and british columbia there they've got pipelines coming down to the us. There's no pipeline between the west and the east coast of canada. Canada is shipping in oil from saudi arabia and same with california that there they're effectively banning drilling or the of oil gas imported. So they'll.

"That it's a good idea to look win to look at seoul. Yeah right but all these things have to be cost effective and i think that if people realized That you know for example. Everybody likes to eat strawberries. You can get strawberries. Any time of the new but apparently that the process to produce strawberries out season so intensive so cost-intensive and energy intensive the there's a large amount of energy being used their the the but for public demand. You know we don't necessarily need If you look at The dowling's these days apple and the like they'll they will have a stance about being environmentally friendly and promoting environmental causes but at the end of the day They use petroleum products to to make their best of and at high energy use Esera comparison the energy. That's required to build. Four new refrigerators. is needed to create one new iphone. Well how many how many times in a lifetime. You replace your refrigerator by private replacement iphone a lot more. Well yeah i mean would be every ten years every twenty years replace. You may go through full refrigeration. A life and yet apple and android. They're trying to get you to change your phone every two years and so the amount of energy that's going into unnecessary virtually that's all it is. I mean they can. I mean people like stand up there at a seem forced to the best. He's like the mount morality. Do as i say. Not as i do you know i mean it's we live in his He said we got a phone that we control the temperature from our phone and did it. Uh so we need to look. I think renewables needs a place and they and it has a place. we need. Be like a prius. You know what i mean. I mean you got to rely on the oil on fossil fuels earth energy as i call it your rely on that and also have a blend of renewables because that's where we all provide energy so don't like the whole like knocking on. Renewables is one thing but i think looking at objectively. Just as you said you know like a tesla gets your driveway. I mean it's already got larger carbon footprint than the entire you know cradle-to-grave of and i think mark mill said that he Ragavan and i'm not anti rooms at all. I'm very pro. Renewables at the same time is i think people need to understand the actual carbon footprint of the impact of and they don't because it feels good to Just a hate hate fossil fuels we just need to get off of it during the planet. Well not really just because rules has better marketing group and they have a better storytelling right and we definitely suck at that. You know i mean just for example have been the moral. The moral case of false was great. Book yup lots of data lots of great stats but to me. Though it's it's it's it's not captured the hearts and minds and that's what kind of suedes people make people understand a little bit more but we need that out there you know. We need that to To shine the light on that actual data versus kind of what shit politicians going back to what we talked about was technologies and technology companies. You ain't got a hope in hell of being successful in gas. If you don't bring something out that isn't gonna improve the The environmental impact read it that this industry is going to have you know Otherwise people aren't going to invest you know guess and of course.

You know. get getting around and seen some people in different positive country. Oh you dumb sales trips out there we're talking about doing a roadshow as well You know taking some stuff out there. Not necessarily related to industry events that plan but just Just get out there and show up if it's going to be people don't want people in the office just getting in the parking lot get talking about and just show up and try to try to get a little bit of a little bit of you know back to brass tacks of stiff. We've done a little bit in the past in it and it's a it's powerful right because you know guys in the office. They spend of time into field but to get them. All in one. Place isn't easiest. We did a few demos. You know through teams in zoom that useful but you know getting out in the open road i think is i think that's such a good idea. I mean this age you gotta think outside the box. Gotta be innovative on exactly. How do you get everyone from the office. Outside talking looking looking at something would in being engaged yet right and i liked that idea of kind of going around in a little roadshow. Yes so we'll probably pick the northern states earlier and the go and have the sudden ones later after that. Okay but we'll see how it goes we've got got plenty stiff to physically show people and Yet it's always. It's always good to show people that stuff that's going to improve what the what of already got like that so So yeah and we grow into. So that's that's been useful to growing back. In some cases you know we lost a few people We rebounded pretty strong at the moment..

"By trying generate money for our company but We're in a position as well. Where we've we've added some safety components that That really earn wreck. Sorry it just undeniable and You know we re contractors in the lake now telling operators they should be using some of our safety products relate products that kind of thing. So that's pretty cool a little side Was do you want to call. I don't know side gossip side talking about it's not. It's not just the proxy but also hey look they have these safety initiatives of the safety practices that i think that you only to Adopt i think that's that's kind of a cool Reputation yeah well. It's not always born out of being proactive of it's reactive so say it's a soul just because we're You know we're just thinking ahead of the curve and coming out with all these newfangled things sometimes reimagining old stuff. That's already out there but you know but the facts are that were would them quickly to our customer base and so we're enabling them to improve what they can do with the operators We we're in a little over a unique position not not unique. But i'll say this few of us where The can we work as a tool provided for service operators but we also sell the centralizers and software for casing string integrity to the operator. So we've got a foot in both places and so we're able to Improve service quality from our customers point of view but we can also impress upon the operators individually Where we think that can make improvements so they can then push the service providers that we provide tools to. So we're in. We're in a good position. It's enjoyable to be able to kind of switch off between not just being always focused on selling to operate as you're also talking to established service providers and i think there's going you're expanding your network that way you're kinda i mean you start building that side of it..

"You instantly feel that you value is is appreciate road You know you can bring value that you can that you can continually keep moving to change forwards at your own pace Around people that Responsive that have the customer at the heart of their their decision as well. I would say i'm fortunate. This is the best company. I've worked for the still private. But this is the best company. I've worked for in terms of being able to listen to A concern in the field for The operation of our tools or the processes involved with them to listen to the suggestions of others quickly Respond and where where necessary build an improvement. That's of though. I'm that's that'd be fun like you know you're developing this equipment. You know you put it out there and then suddenly you just feedback and the fact able to pivot so quick and you know add you know some sort of change modifications to kind of improve on your product quickly. That's gotta be pretty fun it it is. It's awesome an to the biggest companies. I've worked for previous. That are in the same space that we're in. We just never able to do that even when there's good intentions bureaucracy. Or what typically bureaucracy and available funds. The principles of the company is still involved in the day. Today they i they did a good job of Just preparing himself for a rainy day back in the good old days of the l. e. ten to fourteen year when there was selling a tool a day yeah I think just really set himself up to to now where they can serve their customer base and they can keep moving forward with With their ideas of You know just spreading out from their original core to to just become subject matter experts and and you know they just it's a mindset their you know and again comes from the top the line that our ceo likes uses wherever possible. We want to delight our customers which is a nice word right sir. Yeah if yo- delighted then it's better than being impressed. It's It's more kind of long-term. Yeah it's a long-term sense such a better feeling. Yeah i mean the impressed you know hundred times a day but newly delighted a few times. And that's that's a great way to separate yourself so that we don't always get it but But with that in mind. Yeah just the. The responsiveness is great. And i think that's. That's what sets this company side and and that's really i mean. I know everybody would look for that. If you can't find that you've got to settle for the things that are working in.

According to clark the last time he saw dick alive was around noon on september tenth when he drank a cup of coffee with him and then accompanied him to his ruby mining. Pit to help him pile up. Sluice boxes carlson. Suddenly realized clark's words. Made no sense. Francis had recently been working at his poor man creek mine not at his ruby pit. Why would francis neat clark's help at his ruby mine. After the autopsy on dick francis the coroner stated francis did not commit suicide but was instead murdered the coroner determined he'd been shot twice in the head and either shot instantly would have been fatal. Francis could not have shot himself twice. Someone murdered francis jenkins and brazil. Meanwhile searchers still had not found. Helen jenkins ki-ho departed cache. Creek leaving ben mayfield in charge. Commissioner mayfield's job entailed supervising government records performing marriages acting as a coroner and administering oaths while he dealt with minor offenses in and around akita. He had no criminal. Investigative training on september eighteenth. A searcher found the body of helen jenkins on a hill north of her camp. She lay near a creek. Her body concealed by snow covered vegetation. The killer had beaten helen so brutally her brain was exposed and she had a long deep cut over her left eye. Mayfield believed the killer used an ax to murder her. Her face was so brutally..

"Of your listeners have probably Noticed is we're seeing more and more pedestrian fatalities. So, uh, you know, it is, uh You know, it's a big concern for us. We We have a lot of safety programs in the department. We have. Ah, You know, our main psyche program is about $60 million a year program to where we're looking at. The data this generated by crash reports. Every time I police officer in Tennessee fills out a crash report. Crash. It goes into a large database the T dot supports, and we mind that information toe look for happened. We make investments on the transportation that work to make it safer. For our vulnerable motorist, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles. We actually send a team to look at every one of those with Alice sees the numbers are a lot smaller so we can look at those crashes and to see Was there anything that we could? Yeah, but I think certainly you know, you know, impaired driving is still countries about a third of the town piece in Tennessee. And then six bills used again, and it probably touch is better than a third of fatality as well. So Those or something certain people can do. Uh, you know, pedestrian fatalities. We've been a little bit of research. Most pedestrian fatalities in Tennessee occur between about 10 P.m. two A. M. Uh huh. And so, you know, Um We're trying to find strategies we can put in place to help those vulnerable system years a swell because most of us could be prevented by just being safe and mindful of it, and just, you know, slowing down. You know, I've noticed that too on that on the interstates, especially during Cove in the early part of covert work many cars on the road And you know you're going down the road and people just passed and left her standing still and that can't be good. We can't We can't develop that habit forming people get back on the road, right? And I think that we also need to recognize that 30 years ago. 60% of Tennessee was rural and 40% was urban today. Over 60% of the state is urban. So when you when you think about pedestrians and bicycle users and in motorcycles and scooters as well, there's a whole lot more of them on the road. And so we wave got to get our Autumn of bill drivers and our other types of drivers. Aware of what's going on transportation that work, so you know, you know the motorcycle industry if you will, the advocacy groups. You know, Advocate the look twice, You know the you know motorcycles going at the same speed of a car or so much smaller that a lot of people pull out in front of so Trying toe trying to get some info out there. We're using our overhead message boards. Try to put information out there to get people to be aware of the fatality numbers. They're going out. A little on the system, so it We're really Really pushing these as we sit here today. There's been 136 fatalities on transportation system.

We're talking Georgia focus coming up for this weekend and John, you talking to a guy that I've had the pleasure of speaking with a couple of times in the past year about a subject that's near and dear to my heart, and that's adoption. So tell us about the guest in the program. Yeah, this week. We have Tom Rawlings. He's the director of Department of Family and Children Services in Georgia. And, yeah, he's always great to talk to. And we're talking this week about some things that they're wanting to see. Hopefully done on the General Assembly this year. You know, he talked about you a present president. Sorry, Governor Temp is big on adoption and has really Not a lot for adoption and fostering and they want to expand on some of those things would like forget, for example, they're trying to get some tuition. Help for families who have Children who want to go on to maybe college or technical school or events and education to help us families pay for that, And so there's um, some pretty good Things that you know sort of tweets if you will. To his, he says. That pretty much update. The system is something old policies were kind of outdated. That kind of bring. Those were more today, really? Just pretty much what they're doing. Understand? There's there's one that involves the accountability of the defects worker. I'm not familiar with this. What What was he talking about there? Yeah, this is we're going to a lot of detail on this on the show. But because I was a bit surprised that a family of uh of a child and if they don't think of defense worker Is doing something the way they should be. They're able to go to Magistrate Court and just at any time have awards on out for me. I didn't know that I didn't know that was an issue. Um, well, you know, they find oftentimes those cases um the defects worker didn't do anything and all of sudden there having awards worn out what they want that now move to a higher court. So that someone can't just really nearly Hey, that person, you know? Did the wrong thing to me, and then you go where I want. So now they want to move that to a higher court make that little more difficulty. So that doesn't happen a lot, and he doesn't little more detail of that. And I, I had no idea that happens. Well, you know, on the one hand you want accountability, But on the other hand, you don't want someone filing a frivolous warrant. Just because like you said, I said something that Maybe you didn't agree with as a foster parent, but it's something that you, you know, You may not agree with this something that you have to do. You may not be living up to your side of the bargain. Right? And he says, you know, they already hold the the workers and the social workers and so forth. They already hold them accountable in ways internally and they make sure everything is being done The way it should be. Yeah, but the other situations? Yes, of course. Um, not me. But every down then you have a situation. But this this will eliminate some of that. It sounds like That it just takes a lot of time and energy away from the focus of what these actually trying to do. Interesting. I want that They're going to talk about a little bit more this weekend. Get more in death because we don't have the full half hour that you do to talk about these flesh, these things out, so we'll get a preview of what they're expecting from the legislative session and, of course, A lot of folks have a lot of wish lists coming into the session as I always do, and it's gonna be another one to follow again this year, and I wonder how much different this session will be than in years. Past course last year was odd because of the pandemic and sending them home for a while. And then budget cuts, etcetera, But you know, the governor had some positive things to say yesterday, so it was kind of a little bit about look. He really did. And I think they'll get a lot of good things done in full swing now and you know, we'll get this pandit behind us eventually. I'm I'm like everybody else. I'm like this.

You know, they've come out with these little stands that you could put yourself phone in. And that's what a lot of people are saying half now, But still, you can't be distracted by that.

Uh, while you're while you're driving. What about the move over law in Tennessee? I know it Z U C emergency lights ahead on Duhalde. It's safe to pull over. But I know their laws concerning that, too. Is that is that the law in Tennessee to do that? It is. The law is we move over law, which was passed, I think back in 2000 and six It requires motors to move over from the adjacent lane of traffic when when it's safe to do so, when there is a vehicle, not just in emergency vehicle. Any vehicle that sits on the side of the road. You're required by law to move over. Can I say, I think was the 30th state to establish the move over law. On it. It will save lives. It will definitely save lives We've had. We've had a number of law enforcement officers killed over the last several years for For people who do don't move over and, uh other people have been killed as well. And so, yes, any time that if there any type of vehicle on the side of the road You're required by law to move over it safely as possible toe another lane away from that vehicle. Finally I want to address d u I that still continues to be issue discussed the problem there and what some of their initiatives are to curb that problem. Well do you are is is a major problem. We have, uh, the thing that's really hurt us, too, during this pandemic. Was. We have a lot of trainings that th S O. R since they always safety always does for law enforcement agencies across the state. To train people to how did how did detect the you are driving on the influence and things of that nature, So we have really been hurt by the pandemic and not being able To do that, Do you are is a serious problem. Uh, people a lot of times get in the vehicle they, especially during Special times of the Year Holidays Super Bowl Sunday and there was always a big event that we try to put on about. Do you are? You don't drink and drive. Uh, it's you know, people have just got to understand that this day and time that if you drink and drive it could cost you not only your license. Jail time and but also it could cost you your life and innocent people's lives. So you know it is. It is an area that we're doing our best to work on. It is. It is a problem that I think has become more publicized now and so, therefore I think people do their best to Theo convince people not to drink and drive. Ah, lot of our lot of our education of spots across a sporting events or ball games are being held. We put out The mess is fans. Don't let fans drive drunk. Uh, Tennessee Highway Safety Office is very involved in that and we're going to continue to do so. But do you guys is a problem? The life that we can save?

Medtech Talk Welcomes its New Host

"I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce the new med tech talk host as well as give him an opportunity to share more about his story. I'd like to welcome Jeff Pardo partner at Gilda healthcare. Hi Jeff. Welcome to the MED tech. Talk podcast thanks worry. I'm not sure. I'm totally deserving of that introduction does very nice and I'm really excited to be hosting the show Awesome Jeff. Can you share a little bit about yourself your background and just also how you got into this industry absolutely? You know it's interesting I. It was not a straight LINE GETTING INTO MED tech at Brown University. Where I went I was a history. Major actually. Didn't take a single science class. I took some economics classes but they were a really boring and I really didn't have any interest in it and But I also recognize. That really didn't want to be a history professor and I didn't know exactly where history would take me so I started exploring after graduation. How to get into business in my first job was actually doing oil and gas consulting of all things and other areas. That hadn't really no idea was doing but I actually was born. In Latin America was put on teams that ended up working in Latin American oil and gas and had a terrific experience and that was my entry into business but then my initiation into midtech really began with sympathies and that turned out to be pivotal to my career development. Why is that well? It's funny Cynthia's was at the time. People probably know now that Cynthia was bought by Johnson and Johnson huge acquisition. Like twenty billion dollars. But at the time Cynthia's while it was reasonably large it was still run like a smaller company founder That owned a majority of the company was really able to shape the culture in the way that he wanted to shape it and part of that was in really tight relationships with clinicians In particular he really mandated that everybody spend a lot of time in the operating room working side by side with clinicians. That's actually not so easy anymore to do in the current You kind of regulatory environment. But at the time we were in the operating room all the time and and it may be realized that I wanted to contribute to innovation on a larger platform in effect companies. In many different medical specialties. So is that how you got into? Venture capitalists yeah exactly so I went to Ward and after Wharton I had a chance to work with cardinal partners. A general healthcare venture firm in Princeton New Jersey and then ultimately went to spray venture partners back in my hometown of Boston and Really was lucky in both cases to learn from some amazing mentors and entrepreneurs in their own right brandon hall. John Clark Dan Cole. Kevin Connors all. These people had a tremendous impact on me and it was really an apprenticeship for a business that you can't teach in a classroom. How South at spray was some of the most. I think important experiences for me. In terms of how to get company STAR WE START ABOUT HALF. The companies in our portfolio with the entrepreneurs filed patents in many cases for these companies but one of the more interesting experiences with solutions which we had invested in the CEO. Step down unexpectedly in two thousand seven and actually. I remember Juliet a backer. Who's now longitude? But at the time was with the peak. What approach me and said she was on the board and she said. Do you want to run this company and I was just you know pretty young guy but I said yes and that's an important lesson for me as I got through microbes. Even when you're not sure sometimes just say yes. That thing's usually important learning experiences. Come out of it and that was an amazing experience because we took a product that was still in a prototype stage yet in the clinic in the early clinical trials. We will find it into a very slick procedure. And we brought it into a full-scale pivotal trial and the device itself was working really well But we also endured a lot of funding challenges. Two Thousand Eight to two thousand eleven is listeners to this podcast probably remember was a very difficult time in medical devices in in particular for spying. Pma's and unfortunately we weren't able to complete the project ended up selling Globus in two thousand eleven and it was not a financial success but so many lessons came out of it for me. I'm sure so. What did you do after that I went? I went back to spray for about six months but during that time also was introduced to the folks from Gilda healthcare and I never met anybody from Gilda but got to know them and really appreciated their strategy of jumping into us. Med Tech at a time that a lot of investors had rotated out of the segment. Why is that well in two thousand eight? There was a financial crisis so that was a time. When you saw pullback from a lot of things but also at the time there was a lot of issues with a regulatory frameworks in Med tech. It was pretty onerous or difficult relationship with FDA issues were reimbursement. Were starting to crop up and a lot of Investors were simply hadn't really had the depth of background in Med tech and didn't know how to navigate some of those challenges so they ended up rotating out and guilt a really brought a fresh perspective in they saw the great products had been developed and the ones that were surviving really were worth investing in and so the last nineteen years For me personally has been an amazing journey through all of that you know. Through the ups and downs of medical devices and through seeing now public market emerged for venture back a device companies which really enables some of these companies to stand on their own two feet rather than than sal out to a bigger company in there's also whirlwind of challenges and opportunities the regulatory and reimbursement landscape shifts. Yeah then you're kidding when you said it's not US straight line. That is quite. The journey enjoyed every moment of it. I mean not that there haven't been really difficult times with various companies but really enjoyed every moment. It's incredibly challenging business. But the really what makes the difference or the people in our business and how dynamic people throughout this business are not only the entrepreneurs and investors but the clinicians also that are really on the frontlines implementing what the engineers are companies Do so it's really cool to be around. Inspiring people on a daily basis and that is a great perspective to bring to the MED tech. Talk podcast yeah when I was approached to do this You know it's exciting to think about what you might like to bring out in a podcast like this and for me really is kind of what I been referencing in terms of individuals their stories and my own story knowing that it wasn't a straight line to get here the chance to interview people and hear about their stories the experiences that shaped them as they were growing up as they were getting into med tech And really understand you know what makes them tick the things that they've learned that have made them successful and the really tough experiences. One thing I'd like to do is highlight failures in our business and the ability to come back from failure the ability to turn around situations. That's something that's not celebrated enough in our business. I don't think people sometimes hide from the more difficult experiences or doesn't go on their resume necessarily and I'd like to start to you. Know I have a small role in changing nat in bringing a spotlight to more difficult things because we learn so much from those experiences. So you'll hear me some of the guests that will bring on. The show is really understand. Kind of what? We're situations that they failed in and what came out of that in the hopes that you know people listening to To the show will really be able to grab onto something and maybe it helps them in in the situation that they're in and then we'll also tackle some of the big challenges in the business whether it's reimbursement regulatory commercialization what it means to take a company public but it will really focus on some of the guests that we have lined up

Too Much Ice In Anchorage

"It's a near wilderness setting packed with loose and traversed by thirty miles of ski trails. But on this date most of the snow I know has melted. Hundreds of racers take turns skiing around a mile. Long loop of man made snow that surrounded by treacherous sheets of ice. Mac's bar gross line is a senior senior who placed fourth and. He wasn't thrilled about racing on what he called a Gerbil loop. It's not the best like going to bed at night thinking. Oh there's not going to be like snow tomorrow by line. The other racers warmed up not by skiing but by jogging around a field. Next to the racecourse this kind of a scene has become increasingly common over the past few years here but biographers line says that more people signed up for his high school ski team this winter than he's ever seen when it was first having bad snow years a lot of people would like quit because we would be running a lot but now it's kind of all they know. Welcome to the new reality for Alaska's largest city which is in the midst of redefining. Its relationship with winter across town in the back of a shop called Skinny Ravens Sports. John Clark is drilling a set of hardened screws into the soles a pair of sneakers. It's a cheap way to get better traction on icy streets and trails so we get them by the box load. Thousands of out on the sales floor for people willing to spend more. The store has a dozen models of shoes with built in Stugotz. Clark says the store once sold a few hundred pairs of the year but icy winters have helped helped drive up demand. We'll probably sell thousand units of study. Choose a year so it's an important part of our business. The changes have brought other adjustments to daily life in Anchorage. One elementary entry school principal has suggested that students were helmets that recess to keep them safe on an icy playground. Anchorages Street maintenance department recently started using salt along with what Sam did to help clear certain roads and the city council just voted to shorten the season in which anchorage drivers are allowed to use tires. Alaska scientists Sir now researching how much of a change. There's been in what are known as rain on snow. Events which create ice and then they'll use that data to predict what may happen in the future but they we already know that it's staying warmer later in the fall in taking longer for snow to build up especially in the past five years branch.

Just search for how to money. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain Steph Lauryn Bogle bond here what you ride a train with undead passengers or if not what about a train with actually dead passengers from eighteen fifty four to nineteen forty one. The London necropolis railway took a forty minute journey across twenty three miles. That's thirty seven kilometers carrying both the deceased end the living who mourn to them to a cemetery after departing a special station near Waterloo, built specifically for the line. And its passengers the train rocked its way across the three in countryside on a route selected for it's comforting views once arriving at the Brookwood cemetery in Surrey at the time, the world's largest cemetery and built in partnership with the railroad funeral goers would lay their dearly departed to rest, and then have drinks and snacks at one of the cemetery's to train stations. Oh, we spoke with John Clark, author of the two thousand six book, the Brookwood necropolis railway. He said both cemetery stations had refreshment rooms usually run by the wives of the station. Staff. Off the cakes and sandwiches served would probably have been homemade, and it would have been customary to eat this lunch with a Cup of tea at the station before returning to London. The refreshment rooms were fully licensed, so guests could have alcoholic drinks as an alternative to tea or coffee. After this brief repacked, the guests, then boarded the train and return to London. The trains passenger list.

Improper Clark says that the bishops stated he would consider the hurry and bustle connected with it as inconsistent with the solemnity of a Christian funeral plus they're worthy corporeal elements with which to contend such as the odors and potential disease. Transmission of the bodies. Social mores were tested to could the rich really ride side by side with the poor to bury their dead. And the concern wasn't limited only to people of different social classes. There could be different religions aboard each requiring its own traditions. The solution at least aboard the necropolis railway was elegant in its simplicity separate cars were designated by class, but all were allowed to ride regardless of their station in life the cemetery. Meanwhile, allowed the rich and poor to be buried side by side, but section separate areas for various religions, it was a workable solution for the time and one driven by necessity. Few could argue London's in town cemeteries were already chock full by the middle of the nineteenth century Londoners were being buried at a rate of about fifty thousand a year previously buried bodies sometimes removed and cremated to make room for new ones until parliament began closing admission at city, cemeteries and shipping bodies to greener pastures like the out of town Brookwood cemetery, which encompassed about one thousand five hundred acres, but the nineteen twenty s motorized hearses worthy. Vehicle of choice for moving the dead and many Londoners had access to either automobiles or one of the trains the living that also made a stop at Brookwood station and in April nineteen forty one during World War Two the London terminus of the funeral train was damaged in a German v.
