"Kodiak This is Bloomberg daybreak weekend our global look ahead of the top stories for investors in the coming week I'm John Tucker in New York On Monday this past week just a day before the mass shooting in Brooklyn President Biden announced new steps aimed at regulating so called ghost guns For more on the president's action and the impact of the subway shooting let's head to our Bloomberg 99 one newsroom in Washington and Amy Morris Amy Thank you John We continue to follow the developments around this past week's mass shooting on the subway in Brooklyn which happened just a day after President Biden announced a new initiative in the federal government to track and regulate so called ghost guns we want to start this conversation with Bloomberg White House correspondent Justin joins us now Let's start from the very beginning The president talking about the ghost guns initiative let's first explain what ghost guns are Yeah so ghost guns are guns that you can assemble yourself And there's kind of two types that are most well known The first are kits that you can buy that basically gun parts come disassembled and you can use hand tools that you might have around the house put a gun together it takes about 30 minutes to put it all together The other sort of prominent way to do that is rather than buying a kit that includes all the different parts You can buy a file that you've been loaded into a 3D printer And the 3D printer would print out the different parts of the gun then you'd assemble them put it together and it would work kind of like a traditional firearm And what makes it different from a gun that you might buy at a store from a dealer is that these don't have serial numbers So if a gun's recovered at a crime scene found on a person there's no way for law enforcement to go back and trace them And so that's why you hear a lot from police and federal law enforcement that they're recovering more and more of these ghost guns They're linking them to more and more crimes and they're harder and harder to go back and trace it to individuals who might have been responsible Okay Justin so then what does the president's order do Is this sort of an end run around Congress to help control these guns Or is there more to it A little bit So what the president's executive order does is requires that almost kits that folks are selling where you get all the parts of the gun and then someone screws them together They're treated like regular guns So they have to have a serial number printed on a part of the so that if they're recovered placing can trace it back and for people who are selling the kids they have to go through the same background check procedures that you would for normal firearm And so the hope is that by including serial numbers it cuts down on one of the key problems that law enforcement has run into by forcing the background checks You're keeping them keeping those guns out of the hands of folks who might have a history of violent crime something like that But it doesn't solve the issue of these 3D printed guns And so the president has said that he's still going to need legislative action from Congress to ban ghost guns entirely or to sort of implement stricter controls on those 3D printed elements Yeah I want to get into that just a little bit the administration facing that criticism that you mentioned over a rising gun violence which happened during the coronavirus pandemic Is the president's decision to fight ghost guns into really face that issue head on a result of that criticism Criticism a result of that rise in gun violence or is there more to it is the gun violence also linked to the ghost guns and then that's why the president decided to do this I think that's one of those issues where there's probably kind of multiple motivations One is that The White House is eager to sort of show itself addressing and crime in a way that can robust some of the arguments that are being made by Republicans And then also this is a way to sort of give something to gun control activists that were big supporters of the president During the campaign President Biden you know painted a picture of being able to make real tangible accomplishments on combating gun violence he pointed to his work during the Obama administration worrying about a task force trying to come up with ideas And more prominently he pointed to the assault weapons ban that he was able to pass during his time in the U.S. Senate Now since becoming president there hasn't really been a lot of meaningful legislative action on gun control And so this is a chance for the president to show through executive action And I think the one sort of low hanging fruit executive action that the gun control activists had asked for the most that was there for the president to push forward on We are talking with Bloomberg White House correspondent Justin sink a Justin if you don't mind I'd like to turn to the war in Ukraine if we could some of the language that we heard from the president this past week he used the word genocide in describing Vladimir Putin's actions in Ukraine and he used that word very deliberately I'm curious about where that may be going if that may be a hint of what may be to come from The White House maybe more sanctions more disciplinary measures What is that about Yeah You know the president made the remark when he was speaking in Iowa about fuel prices And if you certainly claimed after the fact that it was deliberate I am not sure that it was delivered in the moment And the reason I say that is that there's been sort of a pattern of the president Making rhetorical claims the probably exceed U.S. policy in terms of how they're categorizing what's going on They called it a genocide even though the State Department hasn't formally come to the sort of legal definition of genocide And when he is talking to us after his remarks said I don't know what the lawyers are going to decide but it seems like qualifies as genocide to me previously a couple of weeks ago you might have remembered that he made this offhand remark at the end of his comments and Warsaw where he said Vladimir Putin can not remain empowered anymore And then The White House had to come clean that up The president said that he was just expressing moral outrage rather than U.S. policy Earlier in April he said he believed Putin was a war criminal but U.S. officials said that they're kind of avoiding that because they wanted to let the international investigations play out So what we've heard is that the president uses some of this really strong evocative rhetoric it doesn't always Matthew as policy And for that reason I'm not sure it always means that things are going to change which of course doesn't.

Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, you brain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here. There are currently 8 different species of bears living here with us on Planet Earth. But it's a bit more complicated than that. Well, take, for instance, the brown bear, whose range extends from the United States through Canada and far into China, Russia, and Scandinavia. There are many subspecies of brown bear that hang out in very specific nooks and crannies. The Gobi desert, for instance, or the Russian Peninsula of kamchatka. But the largest of the brown bear subspecies is the kodiak bear, which lives only on the kodiak archipelago off the southern coast of Alaska. The brown bear species is believed to have first evolved in Asia and spread into Europe around 250,000 years ago. Around a 100,000 years ago, they likely moved into North America through Alaska. But didn't go farther south into the lower 48 until closer to between 13,015 thousand years ago. Before the article, this episode is based on, has tough works spoke via email with Shannon finnegan, a PhD candidate at the state university of New York, and a kodiak bear researcher at the Alaska department of fish and game, kodiak. And she said, it's hard to say exactly how brown bears ended up in kodiak, but the most agreed upon theory is that they likely crossed over from mainland Alaska via an ice bridge during the last ice age. It's believed that some of southern kodiak may have been unglaciated at this point, and the first kodiak brown bear population may have taken hold here. As the glacier retreated, the bear population likely expanded to occur all across the archipelago, taking advantage of the rich food supplies. The kodiak archipelago is a string of islands cut off from mainland Alaska, which is the perfect condition for a subspecies of anything to evolve. However, while distinguishing between similar animal species can be difficult, defining subspecies is even trickier. Biologists don't even completely agree about whether different groups of brown bears should be classified as subspecies or not. Finnegan said, and generally speaking, all brown bears found across the world belong to the same species. However, it is said that Brown bears could be split into 5 clades based on some genetic and geographical differences. Within this clade system, kodiak bears fit into a clade with bears from mainland Alaska. A clades are branches of evolution that include a single common ancestor and all of its descendants. Since the kodiak bear has been living the island life for at least 12,000 years, it's been cut off from others of its species for long enough to display some genetic differences. For instance, the kodiak bear can grow to larger sizes than any other type of brown bear, weighing in at up to 1500 pounds. That's 680 kilos. They rival the polar bear for the title of biggest bear in the world. And there's another reason kodiak bears grow so large compared with their mainland counterparts. There archipelago is rich in food like Pacific salmon, and there's relatively little competition from other predators. Bears may have a reputation for being aggressive, but according to finnegan, kodiak bears have harmoniously cohabitated with humans on their islands for a long time. There hasn't been a human fatality from a bear attack on kodiak in over 90 years. Finnegan said, they are extremely adaptable and curious animals, with very distinctive personalities. Some bears around the city of kodiak have even learned how to open car doors and bear proof dumpsters, which are very tricky to try and access human foods. Cardiac bears, like all brown bears, have the ability to delay implantation of a fertilized egg in the womb. That's how a female brown bear can give birth to a litter of cubs, all sired by different fathers. They usually breed in June, but won't become pregnant until later in the fall. Their bodies have to wait to see whether they can build up enough fat reserves to sustain a pregnancy and provide milk for offspring in the den. Cardiac bare populations seem to be relatively stable at around 3500 individuals on the archipelago. However, this wasn't always the case. Finnegan said, historically, kodiak bears were heavily persecuted on parts of the archipelago when cattle ranching was a prominent industry. They were viewed as vermin and exterminated whenever possible. Hunting groups on kodiak took issue against this and fought to have protections put in place for the kodiak bear. Thanks to the efforts of these sport hunters, huge swaths of land were set aside as protected refuge for the spare, and their population increased. Illegal hunting of kodiak bears does exist today. However, the population is closely managed. But as with many animal populations, climate change may impact kodiak bears in the future, particularly if warming waters alter or negatively impact.

debt and high yield bonds teeter Vander steel welcome to Bloomberg Thank you So let's talk a little bit about your background which kind of surprises me You graduate Washington and Lee university not only with a BA in economics but a BA in journalism How do you go from journalism to emerging market debt Well that one is an easy one My dad set my expectations early in life that he would pay for my existence through undergraduate or 21 years old whichever came first So I graduated at 20 and I figured that a path in economics had higher lifetime earnings potential And I wanted to live in New York City So I chose that path Of course at the time if you think about emerging debt this is 1990 so the fall of communism we had just finished an economic studying mangrove Olson's famous comparative economic systems so now is here a chance to really get to know some of the countries that we had been studying And my economics professors had said listen you get kind of a free MBA if you join any of the Wall Street banks that go through their training program and free sounded like a good thing So I applied to a couple of them to Goldman and JPMorgan and landed a job with both but my dad conventionally I should definitely take the JPMorgan job The lesser earnings notwithstanding he said the culture will be more of a fit for somebody like me And so that's how I got there Quite interesting You spent two years working at JPMorgan San palo office in the mid 90s that had to be a fascinating experience Tell us a little bit about that What did you learn from your time in São Paulo So Paulo was amazing if I had been the kind of journalist that Michael Lewis was I would have written a whole book just about that experience I mean if you think about it it's 1995 so plan a

this was during the whole constitutional reform effort which is actually still ongoing today And all of the votes that went on in Congress were super important to the future of the country So I would get to know the congressman figure out which way the vote was going to go fly back to São Paulo get on the guten holler tell JPMorgan's worldwide clients how that was going to go And at the time I guess that was really the origins of sales color which is something I don't read these days but at the time I guess I was in charge of producing sales color which I think is pretty funny That's really

When we fire the gun we can see the very high concentrations of those particular minerals. Dr eskin believes these hyper accumulator. Plots could be used to farm metals. Which is why he takes his gun out into the field. He points it. At least it's like the ones in front of us to find species that absorb unusually high levels of metals from the soil. Well the gun works pretty much like any gun. You pull the trigger and it fires. And in this case it was an x ray and the x ray interact with the elements within the leaf and that fluorescent energy is detected by detector within the gun so as i place the gun over the top of the leaf we will start to see flourescence of the different elements that are in this in this case.

Self-driving industry takes to the highway after robotaxi failure
"Today. The Financial Times has an interesting piece up. That's getting at something. That I've sort of been saying all along about Anamika vehicles? If you can already give me autonomy on the highway. Why not just give that to me now? I mean we have heard some of the reasons why companies like Waymo decided they needed to go all the way to level five autonomy, but according to the Financial Times some in the self-driving industry are now gravitating towards. Only autonomy as the whole dream of the go anywhere fleet of autonomous taxis continues to be a dream deferred. Quoting the These sector is experiencing autonomous. Disillusionment says Prescott Watson. Principal at many mobility and early stage venture capital firm now quote the pitches robot taxes are a pipe dream, but let's take this technology and do something more lucrative he adds. Investors are still interested in autonomy, but the focus has shifted towards practical services such as grocery delivery, automated warehouse, robots and autonomous functions restricted to highways, the concept of highway, only autonomy is currently capturing the attention of the industry, instead of trying to solve the myriad challenges of go anywhere rogue taxis engineers could focus on making it work on just highways to begin with autonomous vehicle.

The consultancy has projected that full autonomy will not be commercially ready trucks until two, thousand, twenty seven, but the likes of two simple plus that. Kodiak robotics and embark went to accelerate that timeline by narrowing their focus too monotonous stretches of road. One idea is to build transfer hubs near the highway in which a truck driver would carry free a few miles to the hub than swapped the freight to an autonomous truck that would drive hours on the highway to the next hub where another driver would be waiting the other big area for highway. Only autonomy is for passenger cars just a few years ago, this idea made little economic sense in two thousand fourteen. The cost of laser powered sensors known as lighter which most experts see as critical of for developing autonomous vehicles were seventy five thousand dollars apiece self-driving. self-driving prototypes were often equipped with several of them, placing them well beyond the reach of even luxury buyers, but have since collapsed with some light are group's including Valentine.

I mean there's a lot a lot of good stuff in that story. And you eat nick. That's funny. He found that story. That is really funny. So yet cameron and I were at a trade show and I think we were at Expo West possibly one of the biggest natural food show and we had a small booth that we hit create. We built it at the Home Depot and put all this work together meet like an old cabin. And it was actually it was cool. So we had this smokestack in their old pot belly stove and so what we did, we wanted to create this. We wanted smoke right and so it was it was cool. It put this fog machine up to it and we were blowing smoke in our early on. We deluded the smoke because we were trying to finish it out. So it wasn't so happy. Later. We're like, no way man this is not enough what's just blow it out. Let let's just smoke this thing out and people loved what's going on? What are you guys cooking? You know Jan cakes smoke. So. This is the guy behind us was just not happy. You know he was not digging are smoke. So the next day we can't we came to the show and we turn on the fog machine and our whole entire booth just filled up smoke. So we looked like what the heck's going on. So we pulled the fog machine out from the pipe that was blowing smoke up into and somewhat jammed a whole bunch of paper towels inside of that pipe to kind of sabotage us, and we knew it was this guy because he'd been complaining before you know. So I. GotTa be kidding me man. So we pulled the paper towels out and we just blasted the smoke the whole rest of the day, right? Didn't even Guinea. Make Apopka. It was just like. It was a great way to kind of bring people into the booth. It was an authentic. Cool Cabin, Mike thing to do and have smoke and we were like. Sorry. This is what we're doing and we don't really care that much. It worked. I feel like those trade shows very few people put in the effort to be to differentiate themselves and do a have a cool booth or have something even remotely been at enough of them. I'm always blown away at how similar everybody's booth is, and it seems like there's no care put into the showmanship of your presence at these booth. So was really cool that you guys built that you basically built a small cabin in your in your office and brought that over, but it was cheap and looked. Awesome. Nice. But the fact that somebody's always GonNa WanNa step on your success i. feel like is a big part of of entrepreneurship and the fact that that guy trying to plug your chimney seemed to even make you get more aggressive and go blow even more smokeout I. Just love that there's big lessons there. There is the other thing is too though like you think about it, we were bringing people over and he was by that. So he should have embraced acts like dude, we're bringing people over him. We want people embrace it man you'll be able to feed off of that right and we can. We can lift each other. Yeah to mindset. Totally. Well what a lost opportunity for him. So on your on your success what was the worst advice you ever got in the best advice you ever got from an entrepreneurial standpoint. So yeah one thing that comes to mind on some of the worst advice that I've gotten and. I remember once I was at as I was at a trade show and a food broker. Those guys were there like independent sales reps that help you sell your product. So this food broker comes over and he's like, Hey. You know. It's he's kind of giving me some of biases. packagings it's all a bit like I've been doing this for thirty years. It's all about cosmetics. That's what it's all about. You know it's all that's everything and I'm like. and. I just thought about that Mike you know that's maybe a quarter of what it's all about right in other words he's saying. You're packaging is what you're packaging your designs every day. And I'm like you. That's maybe a quarter of what it's all about. The packaging needs to represent the depth behind the brand, and if you don't create that depth, you don't create a great culture if you don't create a great brand identity and brand positioning and real differentiation with your products. Then then that great packaging is just it's shallow. And it will not be sustaining. It won't sustain you long term and so the real the real what really matters is if you have those elements and then you have some really great packaging in. Branding that goes along with an awesome Easter because then people will walk into the brand and want to become part of that tribe for the long haul, and then it's then you know people love that. So I I'd say that would be some of the worst. I'd say some of the very best advice that I have received was early on. From. An entrepreneur that I was talking to who'd been pretty successful and he said Joel you need to surround yourself with great people. In, I. Think we all we do here that that's something that we hear a lot and so it's not like this unique. You know bit of advice probably for a lot of people. But the reality is I think it is some of the most important advice around because I think as an entrepreneur sometimes early on entrepreneurs kinda think they have to be the one doing everything. They have to be the person with all the ideas they have to be the creative one and. Early early on kind of do because you're alone. But but but to really start the scale, that's when you need to start bringing people on people around you that are better than you at so many at so many different things and what you need to become good at is finding great people. That's what she got to become good right and then, and that's how you scale is creating great culture which helps. You. Attract really great people. So I think that's why cody I mean. Really at the end of the day that's why Kodiak cakes is where it is. Today is because we have been able to hire an incredible honestly like an incredible team people and we've built what what I would say is a really really great culture that you know that's empowering that that. You. Know that that embraces people it's come as it's a come as you are leave better culture it's collaborative. There's a high degree of psychological safety where people feel like they could challenge. Challenge, the status quo, they can bring up their ideas not filling out. I'M GONNA get trampled on if I do yet. There's there's also high degree of accountability. So people are working we have a great. Reporting and accountability structure were able to really compete get things done. So I think those are those are the two things that I that I would say well, it sounds like a very critical balanced strike where there is a a heavy work ethic at the company and heavy expectation, but also transparency and the. Just, kind of a culture of people feeling like they can. They can speak up and be themselves and challenge things. I think that's the that's huge. Yeah. We're really I mean we we really making efforts. It's deliberate. It's obviously never perfect. You know and I think. Anyone managing culture has to you have to, you have to realize your weaknesses. But what you do is you create a standard. So you have to you know one thing that we did three years ago we wrote our culture down and. You know now it's a standard and we hold each other accountable to it i. mean everyone's bonus fifty based on living the Kodiak Code we call it it's our culture, and so it's half of what if your bonus is what you do what you accomplish the other half is how you do it and so know that's what really matters so much and it creates a really fun in productive work environment for people. To last few questions when it comes to entrepreneurship, there's a lot of a lot of business books and a lot of resources out there, and it's easy to get.

"I'd accomplished. Usually they were sales distribution and more retailers picking up the product but little by little it would happen. So I'd be like well, I gotTA. Keep going. The other thing that that really helped was customer letters. So emails and. Consumers even in the early days were still mailing letters, right? So people would be letters in and say Look I love Your Pants Mrs. This is the best tank mixed. I've ever hat. Thanks for making great product. So that was incredibly motivated. Well, then I gotTa keep going with this thing if I can just do it long enough you know it, it'll happen so. I think those are those things really helped me kind of work through it and keep going and I feel like it's huge the notion of having. Milestone. Whether, that's in terms of quarterly or three months or six months because it seems like a lot of would be entrepreneurs. kind of overwhelmed themselves by thinking that they need to do so much so fast and instead of setting just very objective goals during specific time periods segmenting out where they want to be in certain times I mean, it's goal setting. It's the most basic part of the process but I feel like a lot of people don't do it and it causes this you know debilitating overwhelm when it comes to your company off the ground. Yeah I think you're right because you also need you need some checkpoints right? So because because I think what happens is a lot of entrepreneurs they start they start up and like I did when I this thing I took Kodiak over from my older brother John. This is the one who actually created the brand in one, thousand, nine, hundred five and I took it over nineteen, ninety-seven and I, and I was a college. Student and I remember thinking and I was on top of the world right? I'm this young college student. I wanted to be an entrepreneur and I remember thinking I can do this. I'm going to get this thing going and but the reality hidden in pretty quickly that a Joel. This is GonNa be a while. You know this is GonNa be this is hard. Yeah. This is going GonNa take some time to get this thing. Really going, and of course, it did take time but if but otherwise you can get overwhelmed by that. But if you do have those little check in points in these goals that you set, you actually can see the progress and you need to be able to see the progress. So you don't get disturbed I. Think it's a matter of keeping score because you could be winning. But if you're not keeping track, it's it's it can be very debilitating. Yeah. So you were talking a minute ago about building your brand and I think. That's one of the most interesting things about Kodiak cakes that just indelible brand identity that you guys have and I've heard in previous interviews you speaking about that's one of the things that has made seemingly made you immune to copycat products and competitor's the strength of your brand. So I'm curious how did you approach the creation of your brand from everything I've read it doesn't sound like there was any focus group approach. It just seemed like it was very very just indicative of who you are and the culture that you grew up in. The rustic culture of Utah could you talk about how you were able to build that brand and still all of those elements into Kodiak cakes and Y that has has major your brand is successful as it is. Yeah. Yeah. So my my older brother John. So the story was and I meant to this just a little bit more. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five. My brother John was twenty eight and he wanted to start a business and he was talking to my mom, can you said Hey, I wanna do I wanNA start a business giving it isn't she said, why don't you do something with pancakes now take the panty grasping go make a brand. So he's the one who actually created your first product and brand. And put it together from the very beginning. So a lot of what went into that and then I took it over, you know in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, seven and and kept alive and built in kept going with the business. Kept, managing it and building it. But John some of the things that went into the creation of the brand you really did create a great brandon. You're right he a lot of it was his personality the way we grew up we grew up. Hearing Stories from our Dad who lived in Alaska when he was, you know you know in twenty years old on survey crew out in the out in the mountains and you know with the Kodiak bears and all this type of stuff, and we grew up fishing and hiking and. So John wanted to create a brand that had a real strong on kind of outdoor rustic wholesome identity would stand for you know whole you know frontier type whole ingredients. So whole grains and Heine stuff like that, and so that that's what he created from the beginning then as he and my older brother, we're talking one day about what what are you what to name it My oldest oldest brother Tim said Hey John. Why don't you call it bear cakes and John it's a really great idea John always wanted to fish on Kodiak Island Alaska. So it was like you know. He says that's a big part of. That played into the name as well. So he liked the idea barricades and called that Cognac cakes and so I think something that we've done really well over time is that we have really stuck to our brand identity and we we have not gone outside of whole grains. For example, we in we've stuck to our positioning and I think a lot of businesses actually underestimate the power of positioning. Insist they don't stick to it often try to be all things to a lot of people in the brands get diluted, and so I think that's really been one. Reason why we you know that's a real success factor. For Kodiak X we have a real strong brand identity and we have really stuck to it over the years. Yeah and I've heard you refer to your customer base or what some people would call it customer base as your tribe and I feel like just the the use of that word. So indicative of how you consider an approach, your customer base for black better word. But could you talk about your choice behind the use of the word try because I feel like it speaks volumes about your brand? Yeah. Yeah because when you feel like you're in a tribe is like a sense of identity, it's a sense of belonging and I and I. Really there are some you know we wanted to create that with that where the brand means something people and they feel like they're part of something when they are immersed in into this brand name by the products they it's it's aspirational. You feel like you're having an experience in a brand experience that means something you know that that means kind of outdoors. It has a park city Utah. Ski. Town Element. And you feel that a bit of a frontier element in you feel that in an intern, I think to to really do that to pull it off well. You have to have a culture that actually reflects that you have to have a culture that it that is meaningful. It has depth, and so we have we have a very strong culture at Kodiak cakes. And people who really appreciate and care about food and wanting to eat better and live more active real elements of of our culture. So I think it really shines through then I think as we. As we message the brand keep managing building the brand it's it's authentic to consumers. So they feel the sense of belonging and identity when they feel like am I. Am part of this Kodiak is tried you know. And the fact that a lot. Of the proceeds from profits, go to actual conservation efforts. I mean, all those things combined really make people feel like they're a part of something which I think is a huge element of brand loyalties feeling like you're part of something and it's not a lot of brands are able to create that, and so it just seems like it's something magical that you guys were able to conceive of. But again, it seemed like it was very authentic, which must be the key ingredient. You know it's the kind of authenticity that you can't get from a focus group that I don't think you can get from you know all the market research in the world that just is is who guys are and. I think that's that's enormous. I think that breeds authenticity. I think if you just go, you know it's like if you create a focus group brand just..

"The prosecution argued that if Ron Shepherd shot Daniel Robin Nickerson in self-defense. Why did he concoct such an elaborate cover-up? Why did he deliberately damage the Nickerson's boat and beach it until the Nickerson's friends that Daniel on Robin set out by skiff for a party and hadn't been heard from since. Why did he bury their bodies? Clean up the scene until everyone including the coast. Guard the troopers and Mrs Nickerson that he had no idea what had happened to Daniel on Robin it. The murders were self defense. Why didn't Ron Shepherd? Contact the troopers and report. What had happened? Ron Shepherd took the stand in his own defense. He claimed Daniel and Robin Nickerson were extremely violent and unstable. He said Daniel always carried a gun and enjoyed using it to frighten. And shoot at people. According to Sheppard on the morning of June twenty third while the brothers were passed out drunk. He took their skiff to work. The Nets Shepherd said when he returned to the cabin. Daniel confronted him and yelled at him for taking the skiff without permission. Shepherd said Daniel then pulled a pistol and told Robin to move out of the way so he could get a clear shot at shepherd. Shepherd said he grabbed Robin and used him as a shield between himself and Daniel Shepherd backed into his bedroom released. Robin grabbed his rifle and shot. Daniel once killing him according to Shepherd Robin then lunged at him with a knife and shepherd. Shot Robin in the shoulder. Shepherd said he then went for a towel and water to treat robbins wounds but robin grabbed his shotgun. When the two men struggle over the gun it discharged the bullet killing robin instantly. Sheppard's attorney presented physical evidence and expert testimony to back up the details of shepherd story but this evidence failed to explain why shepherd covered up the murders and buried the bodies. According to Sheppard. He covered up his crime. Not Out of guilt but because he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder or PTSD shepherd said when he was a marine in Vietnam. He was confined for several weeks to the Marine brig at Danang where he claimed he was brutally mistreated including one incident when he was sexually assaulted with a night. Stick by guard this mistreatment by authorities. He said left him distrustful of police. He said that his violent encounter with the Nickerson's and the shooting brought back the trauma from Vietnam and once he had killed the nickerson brothers. All he wanted to do was return his life to normal as quickly as possible. He believed the police would not listen to his side of the story and would arrest an attack him if he tried to report the incident. Sheppard's attorney hoped to call Dr Raymond. Scofield to testify. Dr Scofield was one of the leading experts in the country on the psychiatric symptoms and treatment of PTSD. But since Kerr field had never treated shepherd the judge did not allow the doctor to testify. Dr Robert Albert a psychiatrist from Anchorage who had treated shepherd for. Ptsd was allowed to testify. Dr Albert's stated he had diagnosed Robert Shepherd with PTSD and explained that PTSD is a recognized form of anxiety disorder experienced by some people who are exposed to extremely traumatic events such as military combat the effects of PTSD can last for years and even after remaining dormant for long periods PTSD maybe re-triggered by the occurrence of another traumatic incident. According to Albert's people suffering from PTSD often avoid and distrust authority figures. He said shepherds behavior after he shot. The Nickerson brothers was consistent with what a PTSD VICTIM? Who had acted in self defense might do? The prosecution called Dr Francis Chriswell a forensic psychiatrist with the Alaska Psychiatric Institute to the stand. Chriswell testified he had treated several veterans. Who SUFFER FROM PTSD and he said the condition is difficult to diagnose because the diagnostic category of PTSD is so broad. He said it is nearly impossible to prove whether or not an individual suffers from the disorder. Furthermore Chriswell said he believed. Ptsd had become a fad in legal defenses and he thought psychiatric professionals such as Dr. Albert's who did not often work with criminal defendants proved gullible and easily swayed by a defendant. Who claimed committed a crime because of? Ptsd flashback Chriswell. Said he evaluated shepherd before the trial and was not convinced shepherd suffered from PD st after Kris will finish testifying. Sheppard's attorney again requested the doctor. Scurr `field a leading expert in P. T. S. D. Diagnosis and treatment be allowed to testify. But the judge denied his request.

"To better help you understand this story. Let me provide some background information on Commercial Fishing. And what it's like to work at a phishing site in a remote bay. On Kodiak Island there are two methods of Commercial Salmon Fishing on Kodiak Purse. Seining is done from a fishing boat. A typical per sane boat measures approximately forty two feet in length with a cabin a wheelhouse a galley and sleeping quarters. A crew of three or four people live on and fish from the boat. All summer percenters follow the fish. When the captain spots a school of Salmon he ordered the crew to make set with the aid of a smaller boat the crew deploys. The person circles a school of fish and pulsa salmon into the large boat with a net stored back on board and the crew secures the smaller boat behind the Saner. The captain heads off in search of another school of Salmon once or twice a day. The captain delivers the catch to a much. Larger boat called a tender and the tender delivers its cargo of salmon to the fish processing plant usually once a day gill netting. More commonly called setting knitting is the second type of Commercial Salmon. Fishing set fishermen live on shore the anchor their nets to the shore on one end and then extend the nets out from shore for a maximum of nine hundred feet. The net major thirty feet deep salmon swim into the gillnet and get caught in the Mesh and the fishermen pull along the net in an open skiff to pluck the salmon from the Mesh. The fishermen hold the Salmon on ice and the tender visits their fish site twice a day for delivery since set net fishermen live on shore and remain there all summer. Asset net site often is not only a business but also a summer home for the entire family in the summer of nineteen eighty eight. Daniel Nickerson forty two his brother. Robin thirty six. Both from bothell Washington operated a settlement side. And You Ganic Bay. The Nickerson's had fish the site since the nineteen seventies. Daniel's wife and two young sons often joined him at the site but in nineteen eighty eight. Daniel and Robin hired a crewman. From Kodiak named Robert Shepherd Likely Nickerson Brothers Shepherd was a Vietnam veteran. The Nickerson brothers had reputations as heavy drinkers and Daniel reportedly possessed a volatile temper especially when he was drunk. Other set. Netters in Uganda Bay admitted that you do not want to cross Danny Nickerson. Especially if he's been drinking before the salmon season even began tempers flared between the Nickerson's in their crewmen they sent shepherd out to the Senate side and you Ganic Bay from Kodiak with a boatload of supplies but when shepard encountered bad weather and heavy seas he beached the skiff and waited for help. Several witnesses spotted the Nickerson's be rating shepherd after the incident and Sheppard's relationship with Nickerson's went downhill from there on June. Twenty Second Nineteen eighty-eight. Friends of Daniel and Robin stopped by the Nickerson's fish site for a visit. They didn't see the Nickerson's but Robert Shepherd the crewmen told the friends that the Nickerson brothers have been drinking all night and were now asleep. In their bunks. A few days later shepherd told these same friends that he had not seen the Nickerson's since the morning of June twenty third when he said the brothers headed out in their skiff to go to a party. The friends worried something had happened to the brothers. And when they found the Nickerson skiff badly damaged and a ground on a beach. They believed their worst fears. Had been confirmed other fishermen in you. Ganic Bay assume the Nickerson's got drunk fell out of their skiff and drowned on June. Twenty-ninth the coastguard and the Alaska State troopers launched an intensive search for the brothers but they suspended the search in mid-july when no further trace of the brothers materialized soon after the nickerson brothers were reported missing their mother traveled from her home in Washington state to stay at their site and take charge of the fishing operation. Robert Shepherd also state the site and continue to fish the nickerson's gear. Mrs Nickerson believed her sons. Had Too much voting experience to both fall overboard and drown and she told other fishermen in the bay. She did not think her son's head accidentally disappeared but they'll certain they had met with foul play. Mrs Nickerson Dismissed Sheppard and hired a young couple to help her run the fish site in early August. She told a visitor to the site she noticed. Some of the rocks from the BAGNA had been moved to a grassy ravine behind the cabin. The man investigated and found the bodies of Daniel and Robin Nickerson bundled in a sleeping bag and buried beneath rocks. Mrs Nicholson contacted the troopers and on August Ninth.

The Dismantled Ferry Kalakala Still Has Stories to Tell
"I'm continuing my investigation into the world. So the paranormal metaphysical working with the idea. That goes whether we see them or psychic. Senses them are made up of energy and we'll be monitoring or following along the oldest active paranormal investigation team and the Washington State Ghosts Society to see what they have to say about an investigation into a ghostly or angry spirit will the story starts out with the fairy. It was the fastest ferry. Impute sound making eight round trips routine. Bremerton and Seattle every day at a brisk eighteen knots. It had room for a hundred and ten autos on her car. The remaining decks had room for two thousand passengers there were shower facilities for shipyard workers returning home a lunch counter. Three Observation Rooms Sun deck and Ladies Lounge. It became a hot nightspot lunch counter catered parties. The observation decks became ballroom. Sadly Nineteen Forty Adelaide. Bebr committed suicide in the ladies Lounes. She lost her father to suicide followed by the death of her brother. She was twenty nine years old and still unmarried in the Ladies Lounge. She committed suicide by shooting herself. Well that was one thousand nine hundred forty one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. The Kala Kala retired from service. A move to the Washington State Ferries Repair Facility in Eagle Harbor. A year later she was sold to a seafood processing company and towed to Alaska to work as a crab Cannery Kala was beached in Kodiak in nineteen seventy and use their to process shrimp. Finally she was moored and would spent her final years listing until one thousand nine hundred seventy five waiting to be scrapped but in two thousand and two the oldest active paranormal investigation team and the Washington State Ghost society toured the Kala Kala with the owner. Some of the sensitives in the grew felt drawn to the Ladies Lounge and a female psyche detected the spirit of a woman who did not like men other. Investigators brought devices that measured electromagnetic energy which detected energy readings in the Ladies Lounge. The investigators set up motion detection sensors and energy detectors connected to a computer that recorded all of the readings at the same time they left the lounge and investigated other locations on the ferry where they got more energy readings that coincided with the presence of that sad female spirit spoke of the beginning of this podcast when the psychic detected the spirit the meters around her went off as technicians move forward. The energy went down. The psychic moved following the spirit. The energy readings rose the psychic suggested that the skirt moved away because technicians were men and she did not them nearby when they returned to the Ladies Lounge. They had a surprising result. The motion detectors work by emitting level. Noises bounced off the walls if someone stepped in front of the Mirror the signal bounce back too soon telling the computer. Something has stepped inside the room. The motion detectors spiked several times while the investigators were away. Oddly the computer indicated one of the sounds took too long to bounce back from the wall. The only way this could have happened was if the walls of the caller caller had moved further away from the sensor. Ross Allison one of the ghost hunters speculated that the sound emitted by the sensor may have travelled out to the wall and back but pass through something that was not solid some form of energy. Unfortunately the team was not able to return for more investigations today.

Deliciousness With Pumpkin Flavor
"All right so so we are going to start today by testing out. We have a battle between Pumkin yogurts. We have three Pumpkin yogurts that we're gonNA try we have. Dan Enlightened Fit Pumpkin Pie. We have show Bonnie pumpkin spice and we have trader joes Pumpkin Greek Non Fat Yogurt so we're going to first start with the Dan enlightened fit fit which only has eighty calories. This is by far the lowest calorie of all no fat at all now. You know I'm a dirt so that's you loud that yogurt expert for the the people who don't know shorthand so this is. This is going to be interesting okay. I'm mixing it up the texture. It feels good. It feels nice and thick you know a lot of times. These like throwback old fashioned light yogurt or a little thinner. This is like a good textile and this was the only one of the three that's not Greek It's just regular our old. Dan Enlighten fit eighty calories bubby American younger. This is nice sweet. It's a little too sweet on board. Is it sweetened with yeah. It tastes me like tin cans probably aspartame or sucralose or a super-low super-low yell. It tastes little splendor riff but it's eighty calories and it's a pretty nice size yeah. It's not bad. Actually I don't I would say it serves a purpose you know at that is Greek Greek Greek well. That's a little thicker animals more sound this hour side. Um You know it doesn't have. I'M GONNA you're GonNa hear this like a broken record. I am very sensitive to clove so when things are overly clove it reminds me of going to the dentist dentist when I was a child but that didn't it didn't overdo it on the cloth. I thought it was nicely spiced with the sweetener was a little out of control. Say I think that your dentist should be fired for giving giving clove like my dentist had like marshmallow floride and it's not that it was part of the medicine was like it wasn't like it's like here's your clove-flavoured to face all right well. The next one is the pro trader Joe's Pumpkin Greek Non Fat Yogurt. This has one hundred thirty calories stories and twenty carbs and twelve grams of protein. The last one also twelve fourteen but I have to say the Calorie count is way higher on this fun. I'm looking forward to this. I bought actually about like four or five of them and I haven't had them because I couldn't cheat and have them before you guys home four It Zero Pumpkin really I think they forgot the pumpkin flavor. Are you just say cinnamon cinnamon light cinnamon taste almost glue. I would definitely not spend fifty. More calories is on this one. No I don't really usually trader. Joe's is a home run. Mike do you like it. I don't hate it but I definitely would love more Pumpkin but I like yogurt and it has a good texture that to me. It's all about texture. It does have good texture. Maybe you chopped up apples and a little more cinnamon your own pumpkin spice to it. Yeah I don't know I was like like that was unimpressive to me. This is Giovanni which is considerably thinner than the other two hundred and twenty calories. This is not nonfat and has two point five grams of fat still low. Oh Levin grams of protein so it's competing in the protein department much thinner. I'm much thinner and a little less full leans like some big scoop out there. You know what this tastes like to me like you know the icing on the top the Danish flavor almost like but it's it's specifically Danish flavored icing. I like the author Tasers all Pumpkin. That's great. That's the Best Trapani to me hands down the winner in the Yogurt Department. If you're in search of a Pumpkin yogurt the season stick with Giovanni I will say just my opinion shockingly. I liked the Dan enlightened fit even though like if you're sensitive to artificial sweeteners it's no but I can deal with Blenda. It was really yummy very very sweet but but definitely tasty good nicely spiced okay moving onto pancakes and waffles. We have yet another pumpkin battle. this is the time of year where all of these things are popping up on shelves this these two are actually this is going to be a good one because Kodiak cakes. I don't know what happened. They are taking the world by storm. Everybody loves Kodiak Cakes. They make a flap Jack and waffle mix in Pumpkin and flax flavor ten grams of protein a hundred and ninety calories serving two grams of fat. You can find these target and let me know Jamie if we have to tell people where the the yogurts are available but or they more mainstream and they're pretty mainstream obviously the trader. Joe's one is only at trader. Joe's the other ones are nationwide. Okay good so the Kodiak cakes her target and I don't know where else you get Kodiak hy-vee there's a store locator you can check out and there's some on Amazon but hurry up because it's low stock curry hurry okay and then the other one we're gonNA be trying Birch Benders Pumpkin Spice Paleo Pancake and waffle mix and those have one hundred forty calories a six grams of fat six grams of protein. Those are also a target so these are competing on the shelves at target and also at at home. It's great okay so let's go. We're going to start with the Kodiak cakes. I'm thinking perfect almost closer to me. Perfect love the look of Kodiak cakes and they're so fluffy they they make really good products and I think that the people like the Kodiak people are really cool. I met them like some food. Show on and these are just add water by the way Oh oh yeah you don't have to. I'm just going to use the back of my spoon to cut a little piece on. We're just a little. It's a little flat right yeah like a little soggy looking getting bigger than that to me. They don't taste so pumpkin but they're good. They're all of them. I never met a pancake. I didn't like Rome all right. I'm not a big pancake person. Those are just okay to me and I didn't have butter and Syrup Pancake like you did just recently when we were on our trip in Philadelphia the hotel that we stayed Pumpkin or their pancakes in the morning. We're not I mean. Can you really Count Hotel pancakes. Yes everything else they did. There was good. Oh all right. This is the Birch benders. It's lighter in color. The other one was dark on these feel like spongy kind of hope. They're better than the that syrup that we tried awesome. Oh that's right spongier. They do know there. Buttermilk pancakes are probably one of the best but these are not nearly as good as their buttermilk pancakes. These tastes like they have more fat oh they do. They have a lot more fat. They taste richer sick. They do tastes richer six grams of fat him giving a little bit too early six grams of protein. I don't know I have to be honest. I'd rather make my own. Don't we have like a recipe coming. It's coming out in a couple of weeks. It's the best those are phenomenal and I didn't know what it was going to run but they're they're way better than this on just okay. I liked the Birch benders better. What did you like better probably the bridge benders but that's because I'm reacting to the richness like all the VAT. I taste it but I love Kodiak everything so don't feel bad Kodiak people. We love you yeah. I think I'd do the bender okay. We ready to move onto bars. Let's go to the bar. We have bars and bars in bars ars but we we let we narrowed it down because there are a lot of pumpkin bars out on the market so we only have the Rx bar in Pumpkin spice which is a seasonal flavor and we we have the Lara Bar which is also a seasonal flavor in Pumpkin Pie. They're sort of comparably nutritional. they have com comparable. Mac rose to entrant in calories in the our expert two hundred calories in the Lara Bar. One has eight grams of fat. One has nine Lara bar is a little more fat fat five grams of fiber in the x bar four grams of fiber in the Lara Bar and the big difference is protein. The Rx Bar has twelve wapping grams of protein and Lara bar only has four. That's a big difference totally nuts and I'll give you some avail info while you open those up the Rx expires our at our expert dot com target whole foods trader Joe's
