All of your financial support really helps me to cover my growing costs and keep this. Podcast going also wanted to mention one quick piece of personal news. I've been elected to serve as the next president of the american revolution roundtable of south jersey. My hope is that i will be able to start putting some of those roundtable presentations online and make them available to all. However i still have to talk to the board and we'll see how that works out this week. We looked to american victories. In the south the british landing in port royal south carolina was the first action by regulars in that state since seventeen. Seventy six when general clinton attempted to take ford sullivan in charleston harbor. So the americans fended off the british. At port royal. Now as we'll see next week the british were far from ending their attempts to move north. British leader's wanted to claim georgia as a win and quickly move into south carolina as an even bigger win a much. Those hopes however were dashed at kettle creek. This is not a battle you hear a lot about. But i think it's important says really overlooked the battle at kettle creek. Shut down any hope of the british recruiting large numbers of loyalists from the back country in the southern colonies. Britain's whole policy of colonial domination relied on loyalist regiments supplementing their relatively small numbers of british regulars. That were all burton. Could deploy at the time. As a result of kettle creek british occupation of savannah became a smaller scale version of the british occupation of new york city. The regulars were pretty well hemmed in around the city and could not move to pacify the remainder of the colony. They were also reliant on imported foods and supplies in other words. The colonial occupation was a continuing burden on london's resources not a help kettle creek convinced. Many people who might have been convinced to serve as loyalists that britain's chances did not look so good and that punishment even a hangman's noose might await them if they dare to show sympathy toward ground rule. As a result. Britain never recruited sufficient loyalists to retake.

"If clinton could get some regular down there for the men to rally around void had received a militia commission as lieutenant colonel and join colonel campbell for the invasion of savannah. Boyd then made his way. Through the carolina. Backcountry recruiting his loyalist army well into north carolina. These were the same scotch irish loyalists who had risen up to support the british when they first tried to land at cape fear in seventeen seventy six the patriots at that time had decimated and scattered them at moore's creek bridge something. I discussed back in episode eighty two after that the loyalist had mostly laid low and accepted patriot rule but now with the british back in georgia. This was the opportunity for the loyalists to rise up once again and helped the regulars put down this rebellion. The problem was that the patriots had controlled the carolinas. For three years the loyalists knew that taking up arms against the patriots would mean that their properties could be confiscated or destroyed many of those who heated. Boyd's call and marched off with him. Saw their homes burned while they were away. These volunteers could also be hanged as traitors to the state. Many of them were prominent loyalists. Took the safest option and chose not to join colonel boyd. They stayed on their plantations and remained neutral. While recruiting was not as fruitful as hoped boy did manage to get several hundred men. In north carolina then attitudes recruits as his loyalist militia marched through south carolina to join with the british at augusta. As boyd approached augusta. His army had reached somewhere between six hundred and eight. Hundred men The patriots were watching these events. Unfold as they reacted. Colonel andrew pickens of south carolina raised an army of about three hundred fifty. Mostly south militia with some georgia militia. Joining him as well. These men were to challenge british control of augusta. Since the british force at augusta was three times the size of his militia army pickens mostly used as militia to prevent the british from sending out small recruiting or foraging parties and generally harassing the british garrison from a distance campbell had deployed captain john hamilton. With about three hundred tories to secure various outposts around augusta he divided his forces to take control of more area. Pickens patriots came after hamilton. Who had about one hundred loyalists with him at the time. The loyalist took refuge in a small readout known as cars for the americans began a siege hoping to capture the loyalists before campbell could send out a relief force from augusta. Just as the siege was getting started. Pickens received word that boyd's loyalist army was in the area and trying to get to augusta so pickens gave up on the smaller force in hopes of intercepting boys militia the loyalists under boyd or been south carolina. Still near the georgia border on february eleventh. They approached an area known as vann's creek where patriot blockhouse guarded the ford. There were only eight patriots guarding afford when confronted by up to eight hundred loyalists however the patriots had a defensive wall backed by.
The Power of Giving Yourself Permission to Do What You Love
"And robin. Welcome to the creative. Thanks for taking the time to join us. Absolutely so i found out about you guys and your company bright blue gorilla when you guys wrote in and when i saw what you did i thought. Wow this is weird and it's cool. Which meant a kind of a no brainer for me has having you as But before we get into your work. I wanted to ask you. What did your parents do for work. And how did that end up. Shaping influencing the choices that you both made threat your lives and careers Interesting question. my dad was a salesman and His grandfather who came over from europe in the twenty s. He started business in new york and it was like stainless steel giant. Kettles that you cook bagels in or certain kinds of metal that they used on ships so my dad came out to california with my mom in the fifties and it was it was great because they were the first of the family to travel and get out of new york and leave tradition so my dad and mom really had a a pioneer spirit upcoming to a new place and setting up their lives here in los angeles. And i think that really influenced me that it's okay to go to new places and reinvent yourself and plus my dad. Being a salesman was a real people person. He's always been really good with people very friendly. Not afraid to talk to someone who doesn't know and That came in handy when i started booking our concert and film tours because you have to talk to a lot of people and you have to be persistent because you get a lot of knows along the way so i think i picked that up from my dad and my mom Mostly a homemaker but she was also into market research for a little while and she actually pretty good painter. So i think that influenced me plus. She always liked to wear bright colors.
An Indigenous Long Distance Live Story
"One of my favorite stories of this past season has to be the story of candidates. And richard scott more i had been following the almost operatic relationship of candace and richard during the pandemic the married couple normally split their time between canada and australia but cove it kept them a world apart. I watched a couple bond over social media staying connected even through the most difficult of circumstances. Richard from the union wadi wadi nation on the southeast coast of australia and candice is from kettle point in southern ontario. I spoke with the couple in february to see how they made their long distance. Love story work. I started by welcoming them to the show. Thank you so. I can you tell me where you are and what time. It is well arm in australia at the moment. It's nine thirty seven in the morning or just finished work but it's a beautiful morning and for me. It's thursday evening five thirty and we're not only. Are we in a different time zone. Currently run a different day. Alright so canvas you to our earth from different indigenous communities literally a world apart. So how did you meet. How did that happen. Do you remember the moment that you i saw richard. Oh that is a moment. i will never forget I it was actually during planet indigenous festival in toronto. Back in two thousand nine and i remember the opening of the festival and just hearing the digital you. I was like just something. I had never really heard before. And when i went out to the to where the red path stages i remember seeing strong amazing. Powerful group of men That carry their traditions and songs. And and so i had to get closer. I had to go and just be a part of it and just go and see and so i wa. I remember walking closer to the stage. And then i seen richard and hearing him sing in his voice and i was just totally blown away by what i was witnessing and seeing and literally like literally knocked off my feet like i literally just sat down right mice bought like i need to be here to see this and little. Did i know that. I would be spending the rest of my with him.
Why Our Friend Dessa Likes Picking Brains Apart
"I realized that this is the pot calling the kettle black. But did you not have enough hyphen in your multi hyphen. It exists that you needed to add podcast or to the list. I mean okay. On one hand i feel like you can kinda you can chalk that up to like a feather in the hat right or you can be like by had is only made of feathers. Do there's no other way to get at. I just feel like come in you. Know like monetize in indie music is tricky and an intellecutal way. I feel like I like language you know wherever it goes and it feels like in some ways the lane partitions about like what counts as a writer. What councils a performer council singer. Like those are way more useful for marketing stuff than they are from making stuff like. I like words. And i do anything that has words at the connection between the brain and the heart and one's life choices is very personal for you. We've talked about this before but for those who didn't listen to our first conversation. Can you take me back to two thousand eighteen when you turn to neuro science to overcome heartbreak. Yeah l. loves dune in my early twenties super rocky volatile but very intense a lotta sweet moments but a lot of lakes devastating moments and when it was time to fall in love with this guy just didn't seem to be able to pull that trick off just stayed in this really Heartbroken place that seemed like my peers. Were able to recover from everybody. Everybody falls down and takes on sometimes love. But i wasn't getting back up and that persisted for so long for so many years essentially that It was becoming like a point of embarrassment and be Character defining thing which unlike and affecting my music which is like the way that i make my money. Just writing torch songs over and over again and So after a lot of us not being able to get out of it. I decided to sort of like take it as a project instead of waiting to fall out of love figuring like is there some way that i can actively make this happen and So i started researching the science of love and attachment and heartbreak and ended up like convincing a couple of researchers to work with me to see if we could change the way that my brain was functioning to lessen those feelings of attachment. You've applied the question to love and heartbreak. What other tomic's going to be applying this question too. I mean okay. So i know why we do it in like shorthand conversations. I think a lot of times. We'll face things like Are you acting from your heart or you acting with your head. You know or you being guided by your i mean. Those are kind of metaphorical constructions. But at the same time. I think if we take him to literally they don't really serve us like there's not like a clean way to partition human action. I don't think we are this combination of body and mind and instinct rationality and have it. An unconscious doesn't cleave apart real neat and easy like that. And so i think i've been interested in trying to figure out how much of the decision making our behavior actually originates from other than our conscious cognition. Were real aware that thing like when you sit down with your friend. You're like why did you do all the reasons that you'd say out loud you're you can. You can feel your own minds thinking but you can't feel your instincts at work so you have to be really deliberate taking a hand mirror to that. I'll say that like some of the questions are kind of frivolous him. Why do you get deja vu. I have no idea if that serves a professor. You know

I i to me doing red carpet or like just beautiful everyday glam. That's like taking your first math course. That has to be something. That's in your back pocket at all times from the beginning. That's not like a goalpost for me so used to get frustrated by this idea that what excites me is like images with stickers and the jamie nelson hype imagery where it's like candy but what inspires all these agents in all these brands that are sponsoring things. Are these boring red carpet post with everyone pose like a tea kettle in front of. I'm like how am i. How am i going to make my way in this business. I will be so bored. If that's all i do you know that. I wonder why they liked that so much. I think that it's just an all an outdated structure but also to sell things. And if i get it i understand it. It's like if you are trying to sell something very specific. You can't have everything in the kitchen. Sink on it because people the general public can't dig through at all But i mean exist in a world. Where i can do. Both you know. Sometimes on the same people i can give you a beautiful red card.

What is the Ice Hotel?
"The ice hotel is a hotel. An art exhibition made of ice from the river. Torne each year reincarnated end. The brand new design a place to discover silence northern lights glistening snow clad forests reindeer cloud berries kettle coffee and so much more every year when the torne river turns to ice. A new ice hotel is created in a very small village of yuccas yari. In the north of sweden the ice of the river transforms to design and architecture and ephemeral art project and the world's first and largest hotel belt of snow and ice every year. Since i was a little girl. I have wanted to visit the ice hotel in sweden. It was a long shot. But i figured it was a dream and nothing would come of it. I imagined myself at the magical place made of ice and snow and how would be unusual and a once in a lifetime experience for me after all. I have had my time and stockholm sweden. But that's as far as my travels in. Sweden took me northern. Sweden would have to be for another time. I had rubbed shoulders with adults from my swedish language. Learning camp in bemidji minnesota which. I went to every october to better my conversational and writing skills and the swedish language and found the stories fascinating. I asked them to tell me their tales again and again. The older women some of them actually swedes from sweden took liberties with their stories and change them up a bit just for the fun of it every time it was a new adventure one of the stories that might have been up. Made me giddy with excitement and marymount. It was based around christmas time and it seemed so cozy in real. Surely it must be true. I didn't ask though. I imagined myself as being sabine. She'd that was telling the story and having the is hotel experience. Imagine with me arriving from stockholm to the ice hotel and yucca. Crv right on the torn revolver. The torne river is where they get all the ice for the ice hotel. The many designers engineers architects artists and workers start building the hotel from scratch every year. A labor of love. No doubt this year they were having a very special christmas. Celebration and architects engineers and designers were making special holiday installations special trees and wreaths the lap of an ice santa claus to sit on to tell your christmas wish to glistening chandeliers adorned with red and green colors projected onto the mini lighted fixtures some spaces clean and monochromatic swedish as expected and some fanciful like a childhood memory of a colorful christmas season. Passed my five cents is were working overtime. I smelled holly and evergreen saw the different colors of projected lights felt the unbearable coldness hurt the piano. Playing jazz seasonal selections center to my right or was it to my left and i was greeted at the front reception with champagne and cloud berries something. I don't even think we have an america. The woman behind the ice desk gave me a reindeer skin blanket to put over my shoulders and walked me to an outdoor firepit only steps away on the outside of the building a roaring fire and wonderful ice chairs covered in some more reindeer blankets. My mind was blown away with excitement. What else would i experience. I had just started my four night adventure in this cold winter. Christmas wonderland soon enough. I was handed a mug of coffee with rum. And i knew this was where i wanted to call home forever. More adventurers came to sit by the firepit with the same wide. Eyed wonder and spirited excitement. I smiled but kept my eyes glued to the fire but all the visitors new that the ice and snow wouldn't last long as the ice hotel closed down in april before my trip was over i will have gone across the wilderness in snowshoes. Go on sleigh rides with reindeer. See the northern lights had met the saami people of lapland. I will have eaten swedish. Christmas cuisine and watched the saint lucia event. But for now time stood still as i glazed is over the fire and dreamed later i would be shown to the room. I selected my very own ice room with an actual ice table complete with a mini refrigerator and colored ice sculptures of christmas past and reindeer blankets covering my ice bed and an actual fireplace. I can watch while laying in bed. The time seemed like an endless christmas trip. But also that. If i didn't hurry i'd miss the whole thing in a blink of an eye. I grew sleepy and dreamed of a wonderful time. The one thing i knew was that this wouldn't be my last time here at the ice hotel for christmas yes there would be more visits and perhaps a chance to be a worker in making it all come together for the holiday season later that first night i was given cheese and blog a red wine with rum learning all new things about the swedish way of life hand was going to be a you fork experience for shore

National Native American Veterans Memorial opens in Washington, DC
"Opens today on the National Mall in Washington, D C. It's the Native American Veterans Memorial. Native Americans have served in the armed forces in high numbers for more than a century. This is the first memorial to honor that service. Here's NPR's Quil Lawrence. The memorial is simple. A steel circle elevated over carved stone drum. It sits in the shade of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Kevin Go over, is a member of the Pawnee Nation and the museum's director. It's an article of faith in Indian country that Native American serve at a greater rate than basically any other group. So we wish for this to be a sacred place, not just for Native America. But for all Americans. The opening ceremony went virtual because of the pandemic. But here are a few of the people go over hopes will one day attend and sanctify the site. My name is Marcel Grande La Bull. And I'm from the two kettle ban of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. You know? I'm 101 years old. No in 1940 for Marcela Lobo was a surgical nurse at an Army hospital during the battle of the Bulge Well, In December. I believe it was 1/16 of December. The Germans overtook the American soldiers. They wondered about putting in a hospital so close to the front lines, but they did. So we were there in leisure. And we had both funds night and day. At the time of the breaks through the growth of the bulge. Lobo says her own community always honored her military service. Now the memorial in Washington means the whole country conduce this same to be AH, thought like it was a great honor. My ancestors were warriors. I'm related to rein in the face who fought in the battle of the little big horn or greasy grass that they called it. My father was a Spanish American war veteran. My brother oldest brother was a veteran all down the line. But some native vets aren't as aware of their own family service. Yeah, my name is Colonel Wayne Don don has served 27 years in the army, including Bosnia and Afghanistan. You know, for a lot of years, I thought I was a first generation military person came to find out is both of my grandfather and uncles. And served in a territorial guard during World War two. That was an emotional discovery for dawn and a complicated one not just native Americans, but on the other minority groups, ultimately that they chose to serve to represent their people. And also to serve a country that this, you know, sometimes. Didn't have AH would've proved to be their best interests in mind, but they're still still did it, He says. Now that the country is wrestling with questions about racial justice, he hopes the memorial can play a part. Army vet Allan Ho feels the same. He's native Hawaiian saw combat in Vietnam. Then his two sons served after 9 11, his oldest son. Nine. No. Ho was killed in Iraq and he wass Credible young man. He was an officer, platoon leader, and he was killed in 25 in Mosul, Iraq. His younger brother's the staff sergeant. His name is Locke or And the meaning for a knock or is a warrior who is brave and courageous. Those are the stories of service and sacrifice. He wants Americans to hear it. The new memorial for native visitors, Ho wants it to be a validation and an inspiration. And then perhaps, who knows? Maybe some young Native son who experiences that memorial for this first time, we'll be in 50 years from now he'll be that the president of the United States who knows Quil Lawrence NPR news

Forget Barrel-Aged Whiskey: This Company Whips Up Instant Aged Spirits in the Lab
"This is a little test. If you're a fan of craft of things that require years of patients to pay off, say a Christmas tree farm, a newly designed luxury car or an eighty year. Old Scotch time is a worthwhile investment to you on the other hand. If speed matters more to you than craft, you may see years invested in, say those Christmas trees as so much wasted time. It's much faster to make an artificial tree after all and you can still hang lights on them but what if you could have convenience and craft at the same time? Seems impossible doesn't well, not anymore at least for one particular beverage, scientific innovation has come to whiskey. There's nothing about whisky that's new. The date of its invention is a little fuzzy but historians say may have existed as long ago as fourteen hundred ad or maybe even further back than that today, the longer it ages the more expensive it is and two connoisseurs typically the better it tastes but not to the founders of silicon. Valley's bespoke in spirits, Stu Aaron, and Martin. JANACEK say they've come up with a laboratory process for making whisky and only a few days if they took my made quiz being the second group, they call the years it takes to age say mark antiquated and wasteful. bespoke spirits doesn't call itself a distillery. Rather the company is Spirits Tech Company intended to help other distillers, grocery chains and celebrities create custom spirits that can move like lightning from lab to store shelves. The name speaks to its intent bespoke means custom-made. The startup uses the lab to bring the barrel to the spirits rather than the other way around in other words, it's using material science massive amounts of data analysis to. Create spirits according to Forbes rather than putting spirits into oak barrels. The company places selected tiny pieces of wood in precise combinations in a kettle with spirits in char- heat and churn or apply again with scientific precision to mimic the aging process much much faster. The company claims they can create seventeen thousand different flavor combinations in three to five days. Most whisky is aged in barrels for about five years according to CNN. So far spoken has made whisky Tequila Rum and brandy mostly for other companies but they also do sell spirits to consumer specifically a line of different whiskies from classic Bourbons to one made with Ron Whiskey of course, the biggest obstacle, any food or drink made in a lab faces scepticism about and quality when it comes to that question bespoke in his taken home about two dozen awards from spirits tasting events since they launched early this year, that's the social proof. They think they need to grow the rest of the business, not just custom blending new products behind the scenes, but also helping distilleries rescue batches of expired beer or spirits from distributors that aren't quite right which seems. To be a good foundation for a promising business, still it's hard to grow a whole new category of anything without enough money. Early, this month, the small business one, two point six, million dollars in seed funding from hall of fame, Baseball Star Derek jeter, and Silicon Valley scientists TJ Rodgers purists may turn up their noses at spoken in America. Popular rival maker's mark is not only one of the oldest whiskey brands. Its history is at selling point founder bill. Samuel senior bought a distillery in Loretto Kentucky in nineteen, fifty three but that distillery began making whisky as far back as the early eighteen hundreds. Maker's marks message today is still it's one bottle at a time every time. And an oppression bit of copy anticipating the changes coming to the Industry today they also say it's been a widely held belief around here that character isn't made by machine. Ouch. Regardless of an expected war between purists and innovators, the time may turn out to be just right for bespoke in the pandemic is spiking demand for spirits but trade wars are making them more expensive to import according to CNN. And when you can't import easily making new spirits here, bottles that can get to the shelf in the blink of an eye could fill a growing demand. and to that investors like, Derek. JETER may well say, cheers.
COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia
"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it. Just another one of the many mysteries that still surround covid nineteen
Haunted Places: Ghost Stories
"My name is Johnson and the story I'm about to tell you recounts the worst evening of my twenty six years. Ironically the few friends I have discussed it with maintain that nothing happened that night say for luggage mishap. I hope to convince you otherwise. Not Guilty. That was how it began with the verdict read aloud to the crowded courtroom on a dark after noon in December. I sprang to my feet already grinning with relief. I was very to hear it though not for the same reason as my client the accused man such a short distance down the table wearing an inscrutable expression he had pale alabaster skin caused black has great across a high forehead and dark is set to deep into his skull but far worse than the. Face of John Turk was the crimes he was accused of as the private secretary for the defense. I had been in the courtroom for every day of the proceedings I had listened for ten days as the gentlemen for the prosecution described his crimes in detail how he dismembered his poor victim with no sign of remorse and then cramped her with line into. Ironically John Turks wickedness made our jobs that much easier. It was clear to everyone that he was guilty. Is only chance of escaping the gallows was a plea of insanity. Personally I would have been happy to see him hang even though my firm was representing him. But I was far less interested in the verdict than the next words out of the chief justice's mouth. Court adjourned. In no time at all, I was hurrying across the thoroughfare toward the offices of my employer to deliver the news. There was a chill in the air and a soft snow had begun to fall. This only served to brighter my spirit's further reminding me of the holiday that awaited. This time tomorrow I would be gliding through the Alps with a set of skis beneath my feet. My employer. Mr. Wilbur was seated behind his giant barristers desk perusing the file fron next case. He didn't look up as I entered and received the verdict with little more than a nod. Under different circumstances I would have been put out by his lack of interest considering that I had just devoted many sleepless nights to his case but I attributed his lack of enthusiasm to the fact that like the rest of us he would've enjoyed seeing his clients hang. Wraps the thing up just-in-time will brim said finally putting down his quill your getting away for Christmas on through the Alps. Was it. That's right I. told him. There is one thing I wanted to ask you would you mind lending me one of your kitbags? I. Didn't have time to pick one up and I leave before the shops open doll have Henry send one over tonight he said before I could finish. Then now get out of here before I find more work for you to do. I had a quick dinner at the club and the underground bloomsbury. I been renting a floor in an old house there rather cheerless place with big drafty rooms. When I arrived, there were only a few lights on in the windows and they stead at me like is set in deep dark sockets. My Landlady Mrs Monks was waiting for me in the hallway. She was shielding candle with one hand and had clearly been enjoying nightcap. This come by a man from Mr Wilburn. Sir She said and pointed to the kit bag on the landing. It was one of those large canvas duffle bags with the brass handle and padlock I was a bit surprised at the sight of it for it was quite lumpy in threadbare for the luggage of a London barrister but it was exceptionally large and looked I would suit my purposes quite nicely. I took the bag and continued up with the floor directly beneath mine was vacant, which was nice as it allowed me to work late into the night without fear of waking any neighbors. As I passed it on the stairwell my eyes glided down the hallway. It was fair say for the shadows and a few wires for picture frames still protruding from the wall. At lost I, reached my own flaw, the landing lead directly into a short hallway with the door to my bedroom at one end and an open sitting area at the other further on there was a very small kitchen with little more than a sink and stove. It was admittedly a bit drab the floors creaked the walls were dingy shade of yellow and the electric lighting was unreliable but I had done my best to finish it tastefully and bring some feeling of life to the place i. opened the door to my bedroom without looking and tossed the kit bag onto the floor beside my bed. Then continued onto the kitchen to puts on the kettle. By this point, the snow had become a heavy rain and the wind howled and rattle the window panes
Nobody wears fur any more
"It's time to talk business. Now, with Dana Thomas, who's the paris-based? All of fashion operas the price of fast fashion and the future of closed Dan. Thanks so much for joining us. I must tell you that I have a relative who works in fashion and a little while ago. She very generously I thought started gifting me all these beautiful firs which she said she wasn't going to wear again I now understand why nobody's wearing her. Nobody's wearing for it took pita the people for Africo treatment of animals what thirty years to get this message through the heads of fashion industry players. But it seems like they're finally getting with the getting on board and they're slowing down or or banning. Nordstrom the. The American Department Store Big Department Store one of the few that. Actually is not completely shattered by the pandemic they managed to pull through Is Giving up selling furry will not be selling for I don't think for was a huge part of Nordstrom business. Nordstrom is a very middle market, suburban shopping mall kind of department store. So the for that they would sell would have been like the trim on your Parka or a little trim on a cough as opposed to a mink you wouldn't go to Nordstrom to buy a full length mink coat, but nevertheless there there disavowing vote as has macy's and Chanel a lot of brands have finally given up on it. I don't know what this is doing for the for instance, which is powerful and big industry and the for industry has made. Big Advances in over the years because of the pressure from Petah to make sure that that the whole. Farming, side of it was as humane as possible given you know in the end, you're killing animals for to wear clothing. You know more more humane certainly than the industrial agriculture side for cowhide for our handbags. But you know nevertheless, it seems like you know when they banned fog is in certain states. In the United States, this band for first serves feels like the same we're going to ban for not that anyone's really wearing it right now or that any can. Really afford it right now because they've all lost their shirts during the pandemic, but it's a good idea and maybe we should do it. So they're doing it and I think we're going to see a lot less than the streets but I mean all does and you point out that the house bill shoes I mean we're not talking about banning leather shoes. But you know. Gucci famously put out. mink trimmed Mules Apple seasons ago when I said Rubel Kelly took over the house and they were really popular. I remember seeing a woman on an airplane and I thought wow, that's really decadent. and. It feels really calm. It looks like it's probably really comfortable for an airplane to you WanNa you WanNa, wear something cushy on your feet. Right? I thought that is so decorated it feels like Louis Kettles and we won't be seeing at least being sold at Nordstrom. We won't be seeing those shoes anymore more. Then, and we don't have a lot of time but a very quick look at where we are in this case between tiffany and lvmh. Well, tiffany has decided to countersue. So I mean everyone's suing everybody else and it's it's just back and forth and back and forth tiffany says it did not experienced a managed material adverse effect during the pandemic and that basically lvmh trying to get a better deal, which is what we all believe it is and it says the lvmh's specious arguments are yet another blatant attempt to evade its contractual obligation to pay the agreed upon price for Tiffany and you know they're go to just fight this and see what happens I'm I'm interested to see how this plays out absolutely tiffany needs a sale and Wants it. Somebody's going to figure out the middle ground now? Why does tiffany need to sail? It's it's been in play for some time and it's it's kind of an a stuck place. They redid the store somewhat in New York. But it it a point where it needs to grow change or evolve at. It's kind of stuck an lvmh with its synergies and it's and it's specially it's retail network but also its whole marketing department everything would really give the brand a boost in a way that would take it to a new place tiffany's sort of motoring along but not great. Yeah. That's why it's been. The object of you know it's been. Looked at as a possible takeover lvmh just going to swoop in and buy a bowl the stock, and they still just may do that

Final 53-man roster projections for all 32 NFL teams
"We're to get into the fifty three man roster. So today, we're going to make some projections I did a roster projection heading into training camp was on July twenty seven I had Jalen Hurd making the team I had Sean Coleman making the team. I had a few other players that they're just not going to make the team for whatever reason. So we're going to do that again today after trying to cap after all the news after everything we've seen and read and it will let's just compare to see what's changed since. So start with the first things first quarterback, Jimmy, Garoppolo, nick, mullins, CJ, Beathard I think they all make the roster I. Don't think that that's going to be very you know very controversial. It should be. I mean yeah. I I. Agree I all three of them making the roster as well. Especially, this season with Cova did I imagine that most teams will try to carry three quarterbacks if they can especially just given you know you never know. What happens if Garoppolo or mullins or you know they were to test positive or whatever the case is right and they were mistime than having Beth who understands the system? He's not great by any means just having them in the building is going to be advantage. Advantageous this season. I made this comment to someone else earlier Beth. `Red to George Kettle is Kinda of like you know James Jones or Mike Miller was. and. Lebron he's like teams back in the day. He used to have like those guys like travel with him. I think CJ beathard and George kind of like that George must have somewhere in his contract that Caesar method must be on the roster wherever he is. Those our buddy buddy but jokes, apart I I think all three of them will will make the team. So that's funny. You say that because Caitlin Beth one throwing to kill this off season for the most part it wasn't. Garoppolo. So maybe there is this weird clause in the contract right? I mean I feel like I could make a stronger argument where you carry two quarterbacks as opposed to three just playing the odds last year I can understand it as you know Garoppolo is coming off an injury. So you want to just protect your quarterback you WanNa make sure that you know united last minute fishing for a quarterback but you know he's out there he looks comfortable. No knee brace. In just in this situation I just can't understand a situation where. What are the odds that your third quarterback plays a snap in the regular season game just play the is I imagine that's less than ten percent very, very low at imagine. Right if we're going to do that, yet are the likelihood of a quarterback testing positive for having that whole situation happened shared night. There's a possibility that can happen without. It'd be a risk that I'd be willing to take, and I would much rather have you know a position player as opposed to you know a third string quarterback that major. May Not like the is that he throws a pass on likely and he's not going to help you in special teams or anything but that's I mean that's a Shanahan's ways and I don't see that changing I. Wonder if that will change you know this year with mullins and method both moans is a restricted free agent, right? Yeah. MULLENS will be back. He's restricted free agent. CJ BEATHARD is directed So hopefully, this is the last we've seen of method. CONHAM. I. Hope they don't some deal but Yeah it's tough. Especially, you know when you're having. Debates over other positions trying to like squeeze some other guy and you've got who's affected taking roster spot and like you mentioned, what are the odds that he plays right? but just given. Kyle and where they draft method and what they're trying to do I think they're gonNA, they're gonNA keep him on the roster rather than just swallow their pride and cut him.

"Perhaps, you've spent the summer exercising outdoors, and now you're starting to wonder whether you'll be able to keep that up when winter hits after all even though gyms may have reopened where you are many of us are skittish about exercising indoors with a lot of other sweaty hard breathing people a set of weights for home gym or garage or basement more likely seems like a great solution. Yeah. How often do you have a great idea only to realize everybody else's having the same great idea that's what's happening here folks since the early days of the pandemic stationary bikes, treadmills and streaming workouts have been hot commodities demand for one item in particular has driven scarcity dumbbells just try and buy a set the goods a newsletter published by Vox, says, we're in the midst of the great American dumbbell shortage. All right. So it's not like we're talking about a shortage of life saving drugs but if staying fit means not just health but sanity to to you, a dumbbell shortage could be a very serious thing. We feel your pain. Here's what happened according to the fitness fanatics experts at box think way back in your memory on March fourteenth the president declared the pandemic, a national emergency that was A. Friday the very next day ushered in the weekend that America changed. Colleen. Logan. Of icon health and fitness told Box Logan is vice president of marketing for the company which owns nordictrack other fitness brands that weekend they started seeing what she called crazy crazy sales every day in March sales doubled compared to March twenty nineteen. They quadrupled in April and were up six hundred percent higher in May Logan said. Rival bowflex was also inundated like Nordic track. bowflex sells weights along with bigger, more expensive equipment like bikes and treadmills less well known businesses that specialize in strength training are also struggling to meet demand. Visit S PRI site and you'll see sold out labels on Dumbbell after Dumbbell try to buy kettle bell iron balls with handles, and in many cases retailer rogue fitness won't even give you a ship date instead up POPs vague. Notify me button. The level of demand is unheard of as inside Hook writer Tanner Garrity noted people don't even buy this many dumbbells in the middle of winter when they're cooped up and drafting fitness resolutions. The result of these shortages predictable prices are high according to vox a pair of fifteen pound rogue dumbbells that usually costs forty dollars is currently listed on Ebay for one hundred, sixty, nine dollars. The shortages point to a much bigger issue in the American economy before the pandemic, the vast majority of Kettlebells dumbbells and other free weights were made guess where China? That's right China closed factories and highways from January to April when the sudden unexpected surge of interest occurred here. America's existing supply of weights went fast due to closures in China. Well, no new ones could be made much less ship to America. Now, Chinese factories are open again, but they can't keep up with the outsized desire a few companies including. Rogue. Have turned to small American iron foundries to make them here. But few of those foundries are interested in making consumer products like kettlebells. It's expensive and difficult for them to gear up and they fear retailers will give the business right back to China. Once the global economy is fully open again in the meantime experts say the boom and at home. Workouts is no flash in the PAN ninety percent of Americans who work out say they'll continue exercising at home according to a survey by Wakefield research for some those at home workouts will continue to replace the gym. Others will simply add Jim visits to their routine. Regardless that means booming sales and continuing supply chain headaches for Nordic track bowflex and the light. For the lowly exerciser waiting and waiting for that adjustable weights set to arrive it can also mean getting creative. What else can you pump besides iron weights? Well you could try the technique. One robust dad showed off a photo featured by vox lying on the floor. He's balancing his two little girls on a piece of plywood and he's holding over his body. Just, be very careful with those willing little subjects. Okay.

"Well it's a fascinating conversation because we're going to have to see how this plays out and I'm sure that if the task force does its job and it catches someone using social media as a way to incite violence or looting or anything like that it'll play out in the courts and we'll see it. Do you think that that's what's going to happen? You'd think that there will be with this task force. Twenty percent taskforce. More spotlight on how social media is used by the criminal justice system and law enforcement system. I think you will be largely invisible because if the system works well, what will happen is the police will show up and they'll catch the person in the act of illegal activity and they may never even say why they need to be there. Certainly. If I were the police that'd be slow to say, yes, I have this delightful way figure not exactly where you're going to be you know how to show catch you and then the evidence will be right there. I'm also wondering if part of why they're announcing this funny I in Task Force, just discourage people from going online and saying, Hey, let's all go Buddha. Because they WANNA chill that. It's good to chill that even if it's not good to chill the rest of it. So maybe they just want to give everyone that sounds people are watching.

But the use of social media surveillance raises some questions for privacy advocates, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union joining us now to talk about how far authorities are allowed to go when it comes to monitoring your social media is Matthew Kugler. He's an associate professor of law at Northwestern University. Mr Cog thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. So Map let me ask you Illinois has some of the toughest laws when it comes to online privacy. So is monitoring social media and potentially using it as evidence in a criminal case is that legal? Generally yes. And when we have some strong privacy laws, but they tend to spend various particular things like they're very strong biometric privacy law, we have a fairly strong data breach privacy law, but we don't have a general privacy statute that would really govern this kind of conduct. What are the boundaries when we hear about a task force and they're going to monitor twenty four hours a day what how far Kenneth Authorities go or not go where where the line's drawn when it comes to that. So we're really looking at federal law to answer that question for the most part and police can certainly sign onto social media website and see anything that any other user insane There's nothing really stopping them from doing that it's basically public. The thing that's harder if they want to get access to things not every user can say. And to get access to the really sensitive stuff, they would need a warrant from a judge which you can't do on the kind of scale you'd want for the social media monitoring..

"They need to use several pounds, a fluorescent tracing die. A bottle of food coloring wouldn't do the trick. And as for the ping pong balls, you know the ping pong balls if people dump ping pong balls and they would be smashed flat by the recirculating Currence. Water goes over a fall when it comes back up at recirculated, and that's why dams are such drowning machines and ping pong balls would have all been crushed, flat and obliterated had they've been going through that. It was also. Disappointing. This mystery had confounded people and fascinated us for generations, and it turns out it was just dumping the water right back where it was no portal to the underworld. No upside down, not even an underground cave. But it turns out Jeff and other fans of the devil's kettle. We're more easily satisfied with the truth. Jeff told me they had considered doing detest to prove that the water simply rejoins the river. But one reason they've put that on hold is because so many people wanted to come watch it. They weren't sure how they'd handle the crowds. On the state parks, Facebook page when they announced these findings. Last ball, hundreds of people commented on the results. While some were skeptical, the majority were thrilled to have an answer any and found it fascinating. We wondered about this every time we visited. Thanks for the explanation said one comment.

And that's really the point Jeff, spends most of his days doing more consequential scientific work, like protecting state fish hatcheries from sinkholes that contaminate the water, but his work on the devil's kettle shows that a little science can go a long way and there are still wonderful things out there for us to discover. We applied scientific message and we solved something that no one had ever sold before. I just wouldn't courage your listeners to come to Minnesota and come visit. Our parks, the north shore parks are stunningly beautiful. They are the favourite place of many people in the upper midwest, it's well worth going to see the devil's kettle.

Never turn your back on a structure that science versus hosted by Australian science journalist, Wendy's Ackerman science VS. Welcome back to sign solved. It. Let's go back to Jeff. He had finally decided to investigate devil's kettle in the fall twenty sixteen when team specialize water Gators we're doing work along the Brule river. We have a series of gauging stations in in Minnesota places where we measure river flow. And if you measure river flow enough at various heights of the of the river, you can develop a rating curve so that you can look at the level of the river and know how much water's in it and are gauging crew was already going up to the Brule river monthly as we have gauging station there. Despite all the hypotheses floating around in the scientific community that the water was drifting up to Canada or flowing underground lake superior. Jeff was always skeptical about the core premise that half the water disappears when it flows into the kettle. Well, you know, we looked at it and did science on the assumption was half the water was leaving, so we were going to pour die into it. But we thought, well, let's first verify that half the fl. Oh, is leaving Jeff wanted to start the experiment by measuring the water flow right above the falls and right after to see if any of the water actually left the river wants disappeared into the devil's kettle. This would allow them to figure out just how much water was being diverted and could give them a clue about where the water was going. You know, assuming half flow is leaving getting that downstream flow measurement that would help us know where to look for the water coming back up. If we did end up doing a die, trace. So Jeff called up the supervisor of the gauging team and asked if they could do a few measurements for him one above the falls and one below. They do this by using acoustic instruments to measure the width of the river, the depth and the velocity at which the water is flowing by plugging these numbers into a simple equation. They can calculate how much water is moving through the river in cubic feet per second. The team carefully measured the water within a few weeks. They sent Jeff, the results. One hundred twenty three cubic feet per second upstream of the devil's kettle hundred twenty one cubic feet per second downstream. And in the world stream gauging those are basically the same number. The amount of water flowing right before the falls and the amount of water flowing after it was the same that met the devil's kettle wasn't swallowing up the water at all and causing half the river to disappear. It was just dropping it down into the river below that the flows coming right back in the river. There were other clues at devil's kettle. The backed up these findings when water drops over a ledge. The stream below will have a boil the point where the water bubbles washing backup as it rejoins the stream at devil's kettle. They're actually two distinct boils visible at the base of the falls one below the kettle. One below the waterfall as for where exactly the devil's kettle opens up into the river Jeff said he can only guess at this point, but it appears to be directly. Below the opening, but wait a minute. If the devil's kettle is basically just a tube that drops water back down into the river, whatever happened all the things people dropped in there over the years, the die, the ping pong balls, the car. Well, there's nothing written down about what people actually did that we could find. I talked with one of the park workers. There has been there for quite a few years and. She said, there's nothing in their files at the park that detail what people did. So we don't know of anybody really did throw anything in there. Jeff told me even if the old wives tales were true is unlikely. These local investigators would have seen their tossed objects reemerge in order for die to be visible..

"He's heard that a few of the boys from the camp were exploring the area and they got the idea that they could solve the mystery of the devil's kettle by lowering one of them inside of it, you know, they Lord him in on a rope and then just pull them out again according to the story which dusty dad admitted might just be myth legend. The man was lowered thirty six feet into the whole at a time of year when the water was low enough that it wasn't rushing into the kettle. He never saw the bottom even after thirty six feet of repelling. And then it's buddies yanked him back up. Again, devil's kettle has sparked imaginations including filmmaker the ABA Cody who sophomore flick Jennifer's body about a popular high school cheerleader turned vampire was inspired by the lore devil's kettle sounds twisted. I know. But the place is just named after a waterfall. Technically, it's not a normal waterfall. It goes into this whole and it doesn't come out. Scientists guys dropped all kinds of things down there, but nothing ever surfaces. Maybe it's another dimension or you know, just really deep. But in the scientific community, the ideas about where all that water was going, we're little more down to earth. People thought, maybe it went to Canada because not very far from Canada. This is Jeff again, grown water hydrologist with the Minnesota department of natural resources, division, ecological watery sources, just studies how water that has soak into the ground moves and affects it surroundings. He's one of the scientists who actually solve the mystery of devil's kettle. It's something he'd been curious about for more than twenty years after he and some friends took a trip up to the north shore. I'm the department metro resources person who specializes in tracing groundwater flow. I put fluorescent dye into sinkholes disappearing streams down here in karst of southeast Minnesota, and my friends was with my wife, move at the devils kettles and we'll want you person dying here Jeff. And it's like, well, I could actually had some. More pressing work to do beyond trying to find the bottom of a bottomless pit. So he put it aside in the meantime, other scientists and amateur scientists continue to guess as to how the devil's kettle function. People thought it went out into lake superior and came up like a submarine spring, you know, you'll have springs and lakes the Great Lakes or the ocean that rise out in the water body from the floor, and people thought it was coming out there. There were just various theories like that that the water's going away from the river. That was the key that that half the river flow was leaving the river in similar geological features. The answer is simple. The water has eroded a new path through the rock and drifted into an underground stream or cave. This just didn't make sense for the devil's kettle. You would see rock called riot light, which is Cambrian rock very old. It's the Canadian shield. These rocks are billion plus years old. They're very hard. They're not the kind of rock. You typically see river disappearing to rocks like limestone dolemite are pretty soft. As far as rocks go and are easily rooted by water to form conduits. It's caves, but Riley is much tougher and doesn't get eaten away in the same fashion. It wouldn't be possible for the Brule river to carve passages through this. Rock. As for the devil's kettle itself is ancient and was carved by glacier showing how tough it is to power through this kind of rock. The rocks up there don't dissolve like limestones do in two thousand sixteen when a water gauging crew was doing work along the Brule river, Jeff realized that he could enlist their help to answer his most pressing question about the devil's kettle. Was it even swallowing up the water at all? When we come back from the break, we hear about, Jeff's experiment that finally solved the mystery of this unusual place..

Oh, yeah, I've been there. We used to go swimming up. There used to be, I think, for many years, a big swimming hall like at the falls right below the devil's kettle because there's a nice pool of water. Dusty told me that going up, everybody was aware of the devil's kettle and the fact that it mysteriously swallowed up the water that flowed into it. But with typical midwestern pragmatism, she told me folks didn't spend a lot of time worrying about a hole in the ground. Wow. Like I said earlier, there really hasn't been that much set about it. We just know there's a whole there as the river flows through in this area. And as far as I know they have never discovered were that went to, I know they came up with something more recent about what they thought. But as I was growing up, it was always just said, oh, we have no idea where it goes. Still over the years. Curious, onlookers have reportedly dropped various objects in the kettle. Waiting to see if they would resurface downstream. They never did. There actually were quite a few. There were stories at people had put die into it and had never seen the died. That's Jeff green from the Minnesota department of natural resources. We'll hear more from him later, but he shared some of the tales of citizens scientists trying to figure out the mystery of the devil's kettle. They threw in ping pong balls and never saw the pingpong balls and through signs and different things, and none of it ever came back up. Those were the stories. I think I read somewhere line that there was not that this happened, but that there was a rumor that someone shoved a car in there. Yeah, that's another story that someone dropped a car into it, which I'm not quite sure how you'd get a car there. But yeah, that was one of the stories.
