The Silver Dollar Vine, Xerosicyos Danguyi
"This week's show is really devoted to a little delve into one particular plant species the silver dollar vine. Zero six dangle dankali. It's an madagascar native that i picked up a couple of years ago now at the characters world live event and the i've rather fallen in love with this succulent foreign. So i hope you'll indulge me chatting to you about this plot for a few minutes in this episode but you know what it will be so much better if i had my plant in front of you. I'm talking so hang on a minute. I'm just gonna pop into the house and get my silver coin. Be right back just to yourselves. Did you miss me or back. Got my my zero six ios here. And what can i tell you about this plant. There are a lot of plants that reference money on their from plants that have coin shaped leaves like pilot pepperoni oevp's to plants. That are supposed to bring you good luck. In some way like precare aquatic and also the jade tree chrysler of autre but this plant is definitely in the camp of being named after the shape of its leaves because they really do look quite like coins. The mature leaves already quite thick and chunky. I would say there were good almost half a centimeter in depth and they all quite round.
New Species of Prehistoric Turtle Discovered in Madagascar
"Which roamed Earth. Some 66 million to 100 million years ago, has been discovered in Madagascar. Archaeologists unearth the near complete fossil of the quick mouths frog turtle and 2015 the freshwater turtle out of frog like appearance with the flat skull. Researchers say it was likely a suction feeder, which eight small living prey. Like insect larva and tadpoles. This is
"madagascar" Discussed on The Anthropocene Reviewed
"In the end white wilderness is a documentary. Not about lemmings. But about the lengths will go to in order to hold on to ally. I love the opening sequence of penguins of madagascar because it reminds us that humans are never neutral observers in the anthroposophic seen. But i also love it because it captures and makes the gentlest possible. Fun of something about myself. I find deeply troubling like the adult penguin who stays in line and announces. I question nothing. I mostly follow rules. I mostly try to act like everyone else is acting. Even as we all approach the precipice we imagine animals as being without consciousness mindlessly following their evolutionary imperatives to they not wear but in that construction. We sometimes forget that we are also animals. I am thoughtful full of thoughts. All the time inescapably exhaustingly. But i'm also mindless acting in accordance with default settings. I neither understand nor exam. I am part of the species that run so fast sometimes doesn't see the cliff coming before it's too late. I am of the species that wanders in search of safety and abundance to a degree. I don't want to accept. I am lemming. The myth doesn't last because it helps us to understand lemmings. It lasts because it helps us to understand ourselves. Penguins of madagascar is an exceptionally silly movie. But how else can we confront the absurdities of the anthropoid seen so i stand by my provocative opinion and give the opening sequence of penguins of madagascar four and a half stars after the break will turn our attention to the smallpox vaccine. Many years ago. I wrote a book about a young person who is fascinated by the last words of famous people and in the process i learned a lot of final utterances. I learned for instance. That james baldwin's last words were. I'm bored that. Emily dickenson said i must go in. The fog is rising. And that paul called elle's last words were dr. Do you think it was the sausage. In my extensive study of last words. I have learned only one thing. Which is that. You don't know when this weird party is going to end or what you'll say as it does seamless transition to. That's why there's life insurance and policy genius can help you compare top insurers in one place and save fifty percent or more on life insurance policy genius dot com to get started and in minutes. You can work out. How much covered you need and compare quotes to find your best price policy genius. It's been a long time since. I've had champagne wait. No that's other tagline. Those are the last words of anton chekhov policy genius. How will i ever escape this labyrinth. Wait no that's not their tagline. Either its policy genius when it comes to insurance. It's nice to get it right. But i my dreams about the shot began in january of twenty. Twenty one in my dream scape. I'm home of course even in my dreams. I don't leave home much these days. Sarah appears and tells me that. We're getting the shot when now the dream then turns to preparation. It's cold but i don't wanna wear a long sleeved shirt. I want them to have easy access to my upper arm. So i pull on a t shirt and then a winter coat over it. A grab a mask and now we're looking for the keys and now we're on the road and now we're in a packed waiting room. Someone calls sarah's name than mine. We follow a masked nurse into an exam room. She asks who wants to go first and sarah volunteers. Sarah is crying as the syringe goes in. I think sarah never cries. This is such a big moment. I think what a year the nurse turns toward me. I wrote my t shirt sleeve addressed for this. I tell her..

"madagascar" Discussed on Bad Science
"Single use plastic is really causing a problem I have spent a lot of time in the ocean. I am a scuba diver. I do research in borneo and national parks and yeah. Pasta goes everywhere and i have noticed that the fisher getting scarcer and scarcer in some parts of the world so fisher declining like biodiversity across the board in every realm in our freshwater systems in our lands in our oceans overseas. Not in a good stage. We are you know facing both the climate by versity crisis that is well known and we have to take some pretty drastic changes to correct course at this point in time and i do think that what happens in the next ten years will determine certainly was in our lifetimes how we end up coping as a race on the spot and just to put you on the spot hotseat. Are you prepared to sound the alarm right here on bad science. Are these these good alarms visa. I think for the first time to celebrate global warming with these along. I think for the first time on the show. These are bad alarms asking you to sound about commercial fishing. What i was getting inundated with in this film was telling me that they're the ones who are most responsible for killing all these species of fish. Yeah there are one absolutely. There are sustainable ways to fish. So i think that you know the the burden as you were talking about zach. It's on all of us and we do have a role to play in ensuring that we are purchasing sustainable fish that were purchasing species. That are being transparently. Sold that we know where they're coming from and we know how they're being fished alaskan fisheries some of the best in the world. So if i had to choose between atlantic farm salmon or wild caught alaskan where. I know that they are really regulating. Those fisheries i would choose. Alaskan caught wild salmon over farms. So know what you're saying. Jennifer is harder than what i was saying though right because when i when i was saying was that it's not my fault i don't have to pay attention. It's just corporations volume. What yours what you're saying is that that may be true but also you do have to pay attention and and even if you're not the biggest problem it is important for us to do our part. Yeah i don't think you can choose yourself from the purchasing power in the decisions that you make sadly that's that's fair. I'm gonna sit in the chair of the big fish inc's real quick because even you notably did not invite any of them on this podcast. It's only fair if someone speaks for them correct and no one better than you so i think. I think i'm in a position to do this. And they did. Pay me for being here and i do need to say that. Sure i'm exact reno here. On behalf of dolphin big fish to think about the ocean is big. And we don't take a lotta these fish out of the ocean. We're going to have too many fish. Yeah they're gonna they're going to evolve and they're gonna come on land and you should be afraid that's and you shouldn't be afraid of what will happen if we big fish are not protecting all of you from it'll because you like tuna but you don't like too many tuna and you may not know that but we do and we have scientists that we paid to give us the numbers that we wanted to see and so and we stand by those so yeah joe so just a review here. Because i i'll play kind of the just bipartisan. You know middle of the road guy here. Dr jennifer mcgowan telling you pay some attention look up where your food's coming from and then big fish representative sack reno. All the doesn't matter where they come from eat as many as possible before they come for our children. Our schools your jobs right right okay. I'm glad that we have that clear. So moving onto like a really important. Well-thought-out question i came up with melons neck is bent a lot in this movie the giraffe and so normally when i see giraffes their neck is just kind of up and every now and then they'll lean over a little bit to get something off a tree usually usually leaves not just like something. I don't know what they're doing story on these men ken giraffes just walk around with their h- with their next completely bent the other way. All the time are they sat by choice and not because they have to be could they have noodle next. This is such an. I have no idea all right. Great no joke. Yep i have a little bit of insight here here. We go and big fish. Representatives reno police. No i'm now. I'm the official representative of the santa barbara zoo. Oh great santa barbara zoo. Representative act renault has a place called lemur island. And that's very good and neither here nor there do what i'm about to say. They had a giraffe with a crooked neck for most of my childhood and it was the sort of alex. The lion of the santa barbara zoo crooked neck giraffe so dress can live what their next being all bendy but i did not get the impression that it was a choice that giraffe was making to be like one of my neck like this for awhile. I think as the shape of that draft more of an ailment but he could still be a star he could still be. The biggest dream was a star to me. Yeah exactly wanted to be like him when you grow up. I still do with proper marketing. Even your crooked crooked neck giraffe can be a star now. That giraffe in the movie was jewish. Correct we can say that almost yet. A jewish doctor for sure he had a jewish doc. Well i think at one point he says the last the giraffe says his last name really. I'm gonna look imdb. Nab i think he's like melman something. I loved the part where he's like debating what his health insurance coverage is going to be. Like terrified of having an hmo moser dukes for adults. I mean listen. It had jokes for adults. I just i don't know by felt like it was very heavy handed on the yes slapstick. Kids stuff which pay is really fun and apparently kids loved this movie and they made three more of them and tv show. So you know what the hell am. I talking about five offshoots of it. I was thinking about this earlier. Insult why there wasn't any conservation. Messaging in.
Interview With Matt Chambers And Juan Buhler Of Boon AI
"We are so excited to have interviews because we always get such unique perspectives and You know it helps bring different points of view to this podcast. So i'm excited to say that we have to special guests today. We have matt chambers who the principal architect and one bueller. Who's a senior data science engineer at boone. Ai so hi guys and thanks so much for joining us today going high. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role at brunei. Matt will start with you. I'll bet chambers i. My background is mostly in production and visual effects. I mean in past life. I worked in like internet service and industrial machine monitoring things like that but most of the work i've done is in render farms and big data asset management. And things like that. For feature films. I've worked on the hobbit and the planet of the apes movies and some marvel movies and all those movies generate tons and tons and tons of data in so at buna. I you know. My main role is the principal architect in its to manage a lot of customers data that they are trying to organize on the back end so taking the the results of the aml algorithm running in putting the database in normalizing that data. So people can then searching compare it in determining what's be best for them bueller i Do that science and machine learning brunei. I also have a like the previous life at career in computer graphics on visual effects I worked on Movies like shrek madagascar. Let the wally different studios What's interesting having done. The transition from Computer graphics and visual effects to machine learning and data science is that We were back. Let's say in the nineties doing computer graphics visual effects we were doing big data before it was cool in a way Were dealing with. That's not said again right. We were dealing with this huge production of
Saving Sea Level Records: What Historical Records Tell Us About The Rising Ocean
"So lauren you sent me a picture of one of these century old title logbooks and it's so cool. It's really detailed. You can see where it says one. Am someone's written thirteen feet one fifteen. Am fourteen feet one inch in this. Really lovely old penmanship tracking tied. Did people really do this. Twenty four hours a day every day of the year they did. They had technology. That actually made it easier though In the late eighteen hundreds they developed an automatic system which had this float that rested on the surface of the water and then fed information to kind of a pen that recorded the movement so then people just had to read off the values and put them into the ledgers and this was done in other places to lake near hillary island. The port of liverpool also has a really long running title record. That makes sense because this was the era of ships rights. Watercraft was the way that people and things got around. Yeah exactly you had a lot of ships going in and out of port and so they were shipping companies. That had to keep track of the tide so it can be done safely two day. Some of those old records are archived at the permanent service for mean sea level which is an organization in the uk that gathers ocean data worldwide Andy matthews a data scientists. There told me the data are pretty reliable. You know most of the time. Those woman over on point is a little hand square school saying they. They sweet because the Tyja for was sick. You get little insights now with him. Everybody needs a sick day right. Of course andy says they're trying to organize a bigger effort to find these records. Because you know since kind of obscure they're hard to find yet but it can be anywhere these kind of things now in libraries from people that we all kaisei done coin. Doug well they are. Yeah this is quite the quest and an even bigger issue. I imagine is that when they find them. The data is still stuck on those pages. Yeah his colleagues scanned about sixteen thousand pages. But the numbers are on the page and they haven't been digitized so they're really not usable by scientists. They're trying to use computers to do it through character recognition. But i mean you saw that writing right. It's kind of like the script and the formats can be really hard to decipher so india's hoping that the public will help he recently put the images on zoom verse. A website and so volunteers can kind of in and and read the numbers. Type them up. I love this approach. I mean we're all bored at home looking for something to do this pandemic so why. Not some historical data as tree right. Yeah i mean data entry for a greater good seriously but to get into the nitty gritty of it. Why exactly is an important to look at data from the eighteen. Hundreds to understand sea level rise today an into the future right. What does that matter. Yeah right. I mean it has to do with how complex sea-level rise is because it's been caused by a number of different things. I mean i. You got glacier's melting temperatures causes them to shrink and that water runs off into the ocean and the same thing is happening in greenland and antarctica. Where there are these massive ice sheets on the land and there's so much is melting in gigi tons tapping increasingly fast. And i know that oceans are also rising because the water itself is warming up and hotter things expand so the water slick taking up more space. Yep you got it and actually. This is kind of cool. Sea level rise did slow down in the nineteen sixties and seventies because that was the era of dam building around the world. When you know when these big reservoirs were being constructed. They held back so much water. It was actually measurable. Ooh that is so strange and it really shows how we humans do impact the oceans. That's like a tangible detail of how quickly we can do that. It's a huge scale. But it's not really a factor anymore because you know dams aren't really being built at the same rate these days got it. Yeah anyway since one thousand nine hundred there's been about eight inches of sea level rise and by the end of this century. We couldn't be looking at three to six feet of sea level rise or even higher depending on how much carbon humans emits but. that's globally. The water is rising at a different pace depending on where you are. Yeah how exactly does that work. Because wouldn't the phil evenly kind of like when you fill a bathtub. And here's where it gets a little weird. The earth is slowly changing slowly getting a different shape lake. You know when you've been sitting on the couch while and you kind of get up and the cushion rebounds like morphs back into its old shape. Yeah not all couches but sure theoretically Well okay that same thing happens to the earth's crust During the last ice age Kind of started waning. Eleven thousand years ago. There was a lot of ice on canada and greenland super heavy and was pushing down the earth's crust since that melted the crust has been slowly rebounding. And that's actually not good for the east coast especially around the mid atlantic region. Because you know it's on the same tectonic plates as canada and greenland and when one side goes up. The other side goes down So what you're saying is where i live on. The east coast is on the lower end of the see-saw basically your thinking about that slowly. I mean the east coast is seen more sea level rise than other parts of the country. And then there's a whole bunch of other things that can cause that to you. Know ocean currencies big things that span hundreds of miles in the ocean. They cost the water on one side of them to be higher on the other side. You know so. Because of currents and gravity the oceans themselves are just kind of lumpy which is why sea level rises different everywhere. I am learning so much right now. You're basically saying is that sea level rise is local essentially and if cities want a plan for this and figure out what an who is at risk they'll need tailor-made information for their location. Yeah that's where these historical records come in. You know they reveal what these geologic processes and ocean conditions are doing in each place right right and i signed us refine their computer models. Which are those high powered ways that we get forecast about climate change. I spoke to scientists. Tomas friedrich's at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory about this and he said local records really matter. If we don't have that information for these see to be like a few feet off the local records of sea level so especially when we try to projects like high water levels of like extremes sea levels that's how we call them It's very difficult to to get an accurate picture of that but there is a big issue with a historical records. They already have almost all of the ones that have been digitized. Come from europe and north america So what you're saying is we gotta find more places. More hillary islands so to speak with historical sea level data all around the world. Yeah and this is a problem across many kinds of climate data. actually the southern hemisphere hasn't been covered as well with things like whether stations and other kind of data collection historically So there's just this big effort to find these historical records outside of europe and the us in argentina. They're working to digitize records from nineteen o five that were taken at the port of raise But to go back farther in some countries it means looking at the records of former colonial powers that took control because when countries like the uk and germany and france extracted. Huge amount of resources from colonies often through force. They did it largely through shipping colonialism stealing and keeping a record of it yeah pretty much so right now in france the national hydrographic service is digitizing these title records from dozens of their former colonies from madagascar vietnam Some of those records though aren't as long running you know they were gathered. As part of geographic mapping or you know to study an area where they were putting in port project. But i spoke to one person who is working with the french to stitch together a longer running record dating back through his country's colonial history marbella unika for seafood unique is from cameroon and he's a phd student in france right. Now he started in german archives. Because that was the colonial power in the late. Eighteen hundreds until france took control so he's gathered the french records as well and then he the cameroon records after it became independent in nineteen sixty. Yeah that's really interesting. Project and just a clear example of how the legacy of colonialism continues to impact science today. Yeah yeah i mean. It's digging through. His legacy is how he's kind of finding these records And there's really only one other long-term record in africa and that's from the car senegal so he knows cameroon could be crucial for improving global climate models But it could also be really helpful for cameroon itself. Nieto's just told me that. The country's largest city douala right on the atlantic coast and estuary and it's extremely vulnerable to flooding already. I'm just last year. There was a huge flood that displays thousands after really heavy rains. So when you add sea level rise to that it just makes the flooding issue worse. So he's hopeful that the historical records he's finding will lead to more detailed forecasts about just how fast the ocean is rising there because twala like other cities needs to start preparing now communities need to decide whether to move out of the way or build some kind of protection and

Deadly earthquake hits Indonesia
"This is. Un catch-up dateline. Geneva a weekly review of international news from the united nations. Thanks for listening to the show. I'm daniel johnson and over the next fifteen minutes also will be hearing about the week's top stories from yemen to peru to the hunt for the origins of covid nineteen plus. We'll be hearing about how the world food program is addressing hunger crisis in madagascar. This forced some people to eat mud and leaves to survive and as ever will be hearing from regular guests salon bell tailgate cutters and alfred yellow. That's all coming right up. But first to madagascar where the worst food crisis in decades continues to play out in the south of the country also known as the grand sued apart from a chronic lack of rain the indian ocean island is vulnerable to climate shocks like the massive thunderstorms that have shifted sand dunes. Burying what little people have managed to grow. The caveat crisis has made things even worse putting a halt to the occasional neighboring
After drought andfailedharvests, people of Madagascarreduced to eating mud
"Years of drought. In with what little the people of madagascar have managed to grow destroyed by flash flooding more than one point three million in crisis in some are even eating ground up clay just to survive movement restrictions relating to covid nineteen has also made it impossible for the poorest of the poor to find work to tide them over the lean season the world food program or p has warned in an interview with you and uses daniel johnson. Wfp's regional director for southern africa. Lola cash through explains the un agency his helping by empowering communities to withstand future climate shocks. The situation basically has been over the last five years with recurring droughts and only one good harvest and we have heard about it. Before in september we immediately had to come in and attend areas that we have never supported as well for program before because the crisis will saw huge. That success more tally. This is what we're talking about. How many people are you helping. And how many people are in need at this moment in the ground south of madagascar grants would gas in december. We supported five. Hundred thousand people almost half a million. We need to scale up to at least nine hundred thousand adults. They one point three million that are in dire need at this moment. Who are the most in need. The most need basically the poorest of the poor those people that in fact they have sometimes they produce small harvests but having been able to produce due to the lack of water. An incredible sunday's storms. That have hit this year. The harvest has been buried under sand. Basically if you want a picture and those ones also who migrate to cities to look for labor due to covid nineteen having been able to find any labor anywhere even in the fields or even in the city's so basically the situation is much worse than what we have seen in decades. Would we are talking now in the past. We've reported on the situation amount and recently we were hearing that people were forced to scavenge for cactus leaves cactus pears and eating leaves with some salt and some sugar. I mean this is just nowhere to live. Why can we not get in there immediately and do more to behind as we have been doing more we. The government will bank agencies. We having working on resilience bidding activities in a number of districts in the suit and we have been doing quite a lot building on irrigation trying to stop the dunes from moving sand occupies the fields the arable lands working with the communities. What we call foot for us activities. Let's say a conditional transfers that people get food or cash but they do something to improve the livelihoods and that has worked in the communities and this is where we have done most of this work. It has been bedtime this year. Let me yes report. But we are not doing enough. We have to also do much more. We have to help the people to get much more resilient in these very difficult climate change times where we know will never rain enough in south of madagascar so with much more. It's great to hear about the resilience building and certainly there seems to be more awareness that southern africa madagascar is at more risk of climate shocks. So is that how the humanitarian approach is changing is to promote resilience by getting the communities. Involved is what we call. If you want the nexus between humanitarian recovery and development with really need to move from year to year support of variable able to move them into more resilient as is to be able to feed themselves to be able to have water. If i'm eligible and to find water to be able to move their foods and have markets where they can buy if they receive social safety nets and social protection castro transfer. So that's the area where we all have agreed. This house in madagascar strategy long-term term strategies but not a gasket isn't poll everywhere it produces vanilla and lots of people are seeing that hollywood movie about madagascar and the wonderful wildlife and the natural riches that the country has so. Why isn't it doing more to help itself. It might sound a bit ruthless. But why isn't more being done in country to empower people to help themselves two days a lot being dining country but is not enough. Say in fact. It's very poor country if you look at. The human development index is very poor in general is true that samaria survey productive days rise by neela species etc. But it's not everybody who can benefit. The population is densely populated. It has also berry berry big promise. China change like it ocean lot of land goes to the days deforestation because of days. Nothing for the populations to eat. So tell

Scientists Discover New Lemur Species
"And gorillas may be our best known primate cousins. You might be less familiar with mouse lemurs, the world's smallest primates. They're tiny and adorable, with big googly eyes and fairy tales. They can be tough to spot in the forests of Madagascar and even tougher for scientists to identify when you go to the forest, and you will see your mouth remark is night time to actually tell what species belongs to. Marina Blanco is a research scientist at the Duke Leamer Center in North Carolina, and for years her team surveyed the lowland forests of northeastern Madagascar are capturing and measuring the tiny nocturnal creatures. I took genetic samples to now. All that work has paid off because they see one of the mouse lemurs they sampled, often found clinging to cardamom bushes is a new species. Only about 10 inches long, and half of that is its tail, and it weighs just two ounces. A scientist named it Micros Abyss Janahi or Jonas Mouse lemur. In this case, Jonah is Jonah rats and Buzz offi, a Leamer, researcher in Madagascar and his reaction to the news. Good news in a bad time brats and Gadhafi says levers, including this new species are surrounded by threats, one first off them are critically endangered. On the brink of extinction. 98% of them are friends. So that means, But there is a big risk for the next generation not to see any more dreamers, mining, poaching and illegal hunting all threatened lemurs. But the biggest problem, he says, is deforestation. There's no discussion when the first is gone, the MIRs are like fish. Fish cannot survive outside of the water, humorous candles your life outside of the forest Red. Simba's offi says Conserving forest is crucial to the future of Lamers. And he says he hopes this new tiny primate will illustrate just how much we have to lose.
Travel to Comoros
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Fiona Jones from Scotland who's come to talk to us about Comoros? Fewer welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me and I say welcome back to the show. Some of you may realize I. Don't Remember Hearing Theater on the show before. Yes. We had one of those that we have. Every three to four years lost episode whether according didn't work, and so Fiona is coming back to talk. Komo's again so for you. This is new those of you who are listening but for Fiona tonight. This is very familiar, so if you're old hat at this, can you put commerce on a map for us? Says I didn't know where it was. This is one of those things. There's episodes that Fiona pitch me rose that I had to go googling. What are we talking about? Is this country which it is? Yeah it's a country. It's well three or four depending on how you look at it for Collins. It's in the Indian Ocean northwest of Madagascar. The northern part of Mozambique And you say three or four, because there are four islands, but only three of them are Komo's. Yeah the whole country used to be French when they voted for independence, then three of the islands voted to become independent and the fourth island, which is not decided it wanted to stay with France but I. Think the rest of the Comoros is terribly happy. But May stays resolutely French. Excellent, and why should someone go to Komo's? The reason we won was because our daughter. Who's GONNA traveling. We wanted a family holiday and it was over the tail end of the Christmas holidays, so we wanted somewhere hot. We wanted somewhere that would be good diving and we wanted somewhere that maybe a little bit different that that might be a bit of. Of An adventure so for those reasons we, we looked around, and now at actually seen an article by unknown or unexplored islands I think it was on tripadvisor and seen the Comoro and and I was quite entrusted I'd also rashly sets the family that I as a bit of a surprise for them, so I thought well. That will give them a surprise if we to the Comoros. As I'm surprised you don't know who you are. Being hot, so we're right off the coast of Mozambique and Madagascar and not that far from Tanzania another from Zanzibar. Which people have probably heard of and it seems like it's kind of like Zanzibar except with a French flair. Yeah, we bar. Oh, Gosh, by well. It must be about twenty five years ago. There are some similarities birthday. Islands are obviously much smaller probably per than Zanzibar wealth. Wise I know. Zanzibar isn't exactly a rich country, but Comoros is quite far down to kind of GDP league, but in other senses it's Israel serve Indian ocean stuff so white sand beaches very green interiors very heavily forested interiors, so in that sense, I guess top graphically, probably quite similar. Excellent will what kind of area or are you going to recommend for us well well, what we did was to land in Grand Comoro switch. I guess everybody will. Think he can probably catch a from the mainland. I. Think just made way for everybody to come. In is going to be defined to Grande Comoros. We landed there. We had a couple of days there. It to be honest is not an awful lot. See and the island. I think we did what everybody did. which was to get yourself a taxi? Going to run the island is laconic island. An active volcano in the middle so much you can do is drive around the outside of the island i. think was one ruined. That goes across the middle, but otherwise he just sits the perimeter. you see the beaches and such like. So. That's pretty much it and he kind walk-ups civil. No, that wasn't something that we did. The seems to be mixed reports about how you do I know. We talked to a couple of guys who were there and holiday who were going to do that and they've got themselves. Guideline think they were gonNA count and some accounts say that you've gotta take a couple of days in walkout, but I've seen something else, so you can get a car or jeep close to the top, and then just walk up the rest of the day so I'm not quite sure which was correct, but between a to the islands. A chip up the volcano, a suspect that's probably about it for a Grande Comoros so after we'd spend our couple of days of them went to Miley which the island that we were going to be based for the rest of the time

"Of past defeat. England and France from another attempt to challenge on of Elmore. And so without a European Army Lambert came directly to Madagascar himself. And managed to win the support of the Crown Prince and the engineer Lombard. They had seen the queen's ruthlessness firsthand her viciousness. Marano was isolated and traditional. Yes, but at what cost? Maybe the future was European. And so, the prince agreed to join in on the rebellion. It failed almost instantly. For All of the depictions of Ranavalona as a hedonistic madwoman. She was an efficient and effective leader with a network of spies and the loyalty of her military. After the small coup was dispatched. Her son was forgiven. He was just a young man. Lead Astray. But after that, she banished all Europeans from Amana including laborde. He had been a close friend and confidant for over twenty five years. But he had betrayed her. He left Madagascar on her orders and return to France. For Queen, they said was insane and bloodthirsty. It struck me as odd that he would be allowed to leave and return home. After all that's a strategic decision to protect her kingdom from French or taliation. To me. Sending Lombard home read as a woman who has less emotional in her violence, less well insane than the writings of angry Europeans and vengeful missionaries would have led you to believe. There only a few Malaga's women who wrote account of Ron Volcano. But one is a woman named Ronnie Raka wrote in a letter after Rana Vol and his dad. The late queen is not so cruel. She's been represented. Many of her subjects have really been killed by her orders. But it was not wanton cruelty. It was through the laws of her late predecessors. You have seen her. She is intelligent. It's estimated that during Rana volunteers rain as many as fifty percent of the Mariner population was cal. Thanks to both her torture and executions, but also from the famine caused by the scorched earth policies. Her armies took when it came to enemy kingdoms. From Ron.

"There are few details about Queen Rania volume as early life. But. Most historical accounts put her birth in seventeen eighty eight. Sometime during her childhood. Her father saved the life of the Mirna came from an assassination attempt. In thanks, the King betrothed his son. Rama to Rana Violin. And promised that she would be his senior way. And that their children would be prioritized in the line of succession. The two were married, and in eighteen time Radimov father died, and Rodham became king of Marano. Radimov was seventeen and Rana. No was twenty two. As a leader him, the first focused on expansion. Is Priority was building up the kingdom to one day control the entire island of Madagascar. To that and he made a deal with great, Britain. They would provide him with weapons and Western style training for his army. And in return Radimov would eliminate slavery, which had been the cornerstone of most of the economies of the kingdom's on Madagascar. The deal with the British which had been meant to secure the future of the marinade. Konami would, in fact do the opposite. Eliminating the slave trade had been a strategic move on the part of the British. Not One of benevolence. They undercut the economy of the kingdom, and before it could be rebuilt, they arrived in order to trade under incredibly lucrative and one sided terms. If Madagascar could be made into a colony all the better to keep it from French I. But more importantly, it was a strategic stronghold, a resource rich island in the Indian Ocean. Under Rodham the first nobles began to adopt a new Latin alphabet of the gas language. A brief side note. The native language on Madagascar is spelled. Legacy phonetically, but pronounced to the best of my ability and understanding Malaga's. The Magas written. Language had previously been closer to aerobic. And along with Westernized militarization. Language Radimov also welcomed Christianity. Missionaries thrived on the island, setting up schools, and converting mostly lower class Mala Gus people. The Queen watched all events, but said nothing. Her husband's eagerness was understandable. They both wanted their kingdom to be strong in both wanted to control the resources of Madagascar. But he didn't seem to understand the threat of Christianity. Christianity meant worshiping a new God for going the spiritual traditions of the Malagasy people. The traditions that had given the monarchy. It's very power. King was only the king, because the blood of only ancestors flowed through his veins. Radimov died at age thirty five. Though the exact nature of his death isn't known. He was a heavy drinker, prone to fits of rage and violence when. It was a combination of poor health, erotic behavior and alcohol. His wife had given him no children, and so before his death he decreed that the next in line for the throne would be his nephew. But Ron Avendano was prepared. The night her husband lay dying. She gathered a small group of noblemen and military guardsmen, and took the throne for herself. Declaring herself Queen. The nephew and the rest of her husband's family were brought to the palace. Any one of them could have a claim to the throne. Could declare that she was illegitimate and raise an army to oppose sir. And so run Avella, ordered that every single one of them be killed. Because there was a superstition that forbade spilling of blood. Ranavalona had every death done by strangulation. Hers would be a bloodless coup. Technically. According to the writings of missionary was expelled by Rana Valla a few years later into her reign during her coronation ceremony to New Queen was anointed with the blood of a freshly killed bull. That little anecdote, an attempt to paint her as primitive and barbaric is almost certainly not true. There are no other sources corroborating that. What we do, know about her coronation on May Twenty, seven, eighteen, twenty nine is that she wore address in the French style. Constructed from embroidered Red Velvet and silk. Embroidered with her initials and rice stalks a symbol of the indigenous plant life on the island. Her dress had a row of gold buttons. Run AVELLA had specific tastes in her clothing. High, quality European fabrics and silhouettes with specifically malegaon St towns. Clothing wasn't the only thing that the new queen had strong opinions on. As soon as her coup was complete, she dissolved the training. Her husband had made with the British. Both in terms of national and personal policy. Ranavalona was tensely private. Unlike members of the court, she refused to be photographed. Show must never spoke in public, perhaps insecure about her lack of complete literacy in the new written Malaga's alphabet. which would have made her unable to read long speeches? And so her few appearances in. Were spectacles of red silk and imposing crowns. Her power was protected through fear and rumor. And she kept a close circle of nobles and officials. With whom she consulted on matters of the state. The Rana Avella never remarried. She did take a number of lovers after her husband's death. She would then make prime minister. But even they weren't immune from her wrath. Far From It. One of those lovers turned prime minister. A man named Andrea Me Hajjah. was chastised for his pro-european ideology. And, so he was sentenced to undergo one of the ultimate horrors of Rana volumes court. The Tandja Ordeal? The idea of trial by ordeal was nothing new on Madagascar, nor was it something new in your? Especially not during the witch trials but Ranavalona gloried in it. During the Tandja ordeal, a suspect would be given a poison Tanjung nut. He or she would then be forced to eat three pieces of chicken skin. If the poison forced them to vomit up all three pieces of chicken skin, they were innocent if they failed to vomit up all three pieces, or the poison just killed them outright. That meant they were guilty and deserve to die. And the Queen's lover refused to undergo the ordeal, and so he was killed on the spot. About one in three people who underwent the tangent deal survived. Nobles and slaves alike were sentenced to the ordeal. When Rana Volun- his niece died of whooping cough. All of the slaves that had served her were accused of witchcraft and sorcery and forced to undergo the ordeal. There were other Malagasy traditions that run AVELLANEDA revitalized. Her spirituality revolved around the some or golden idols that were heavily guarded. And she made policies based on a process called kid, which you through dried beans on board and used mathematical formulae to come to a decision. But run of own was also one who recognized the.

"In eighteen, thirty seven, just a few months before queen, Victoria would become the monarch of an empire at age eighteen, a group of six ambassadors arrived to England from the island of Madagascar. The sixth embassador had made the perilous journey from the eastern coast of Africa to London on behalf of their queen. The Queen of Marina Queen Rania volume. Americana or the Mariners? Kingdom was the largest and most powerful kingdom on the Madagascar Island. It was dense with natural resources. And had achieved military supremacy, and near full island dominance during the reign of Rodham, A-, who allied with the British Empire? But that allegiance ended the moment. Rodham died and his wife Rana volume became queen. Run of Avellaneda tore up all the arrangements with European. Powers ejected their ambassadors, and declared that the Mirna Kingdom would exist under a policy of complete isolation. With an emphasis on returning back to native traditions and cultures. There would be no more Christian missionaries in in Marina. The, Mirna, people who had already converted be accepted for the time being. But by the end of her reign, they would suffer bloody persecution. Queen run VOL and had one priority. To Return Marinate to the way it had been before European. Settlers and she would kill as many people as necessary in order to achieve her vision. I suppose that singlemindedness does reveal a second priority. Preserve. Protect the crown at any cost. The six embassador came to meet with the British King. William, before! Were given a lovely diplomatic tour of England. It went to the meant the dockyard. The Tower of London Zoological Gardens. But however pleasant their stay. The ambassador refused to budge from their message. The Queen had sent them with two letters, she dictated in polite but unambiguous link. The law of her country would not be dictated by Europeans. Christianity would not be tolerated. European were forbidden from living in Madagascar. With the exception of those soldiers taken as prisoners of war. To England about to welcome their own to the throne, run-of-the-mill was an object of fascination. depictions of her in Victorian sources range from bewilderment to outright racism. In contrast to tiny Queen Victoria standing only five feet, tall, a paradigm of domesticity and Christian femininity. Queen? Ranavalona was terrifying. A bloodthirsty despot would slaughter. Her own people earned slave them. Refused trade alliances with Europe and who will pay a traditional rituals that nineteenth century Europeans seemed strange and superstitious. The problem wasn't that she was a woman. No, of course not their next monarch was about to be a woman. But. Victoria was going to be the right kind of woman. A civilized domesticated woman! Ranavalona, they wrote was what would happen if a woman allowed her basis, most hedonistic impulses to run unchecked. It's no wonder. Then that the few depictions we have of Queen Rania Valona in the English. Language are sparse and heavily woven with racism. She tops lists of the most bloodthirsty Queens in history often casually referenced as Queen Rana. Val in the bloody or Queen. Rania Valona the cruel. Recently there's been a small school of thought that attempted to recast her as a seminarist hero someone who fought off the imperialist forces in order to protect your kingdom, but that doesn't really fit her either. She is both and she is neither. Volcano was cruel. Her Reign was bloody. She was a selfish and paranoid ruler. But. She was also politically adept and militaristically minded. She continued the expansion of the Mariner Kingdom that her husband began. To This Day, the few preserved relics of traditional Malagasy culture that we do have are mostly. Thanks to her. So I begin this podcast with the disclaimer that there are very few reliable English, language sources that present a clear picture of Rana Velez rain, many of the writings come from the Christian missionaries. The cheek spelled, who would have purposefully exaggerated their stories of her cruelty. All we can do is attempt to tease out what we do. Know from the sources we do have. A story beneath is a distant and challenging woman who defied European supremacy. A woman who would rather kill than compromise. I'm Danish warts. And this is noble blood..

Martini celebrates the festive season with a limited-edition Negroni chocolate collection created by Paul A. Young
"The beloved Italian Coktail Negroni is one hundred years old this year and the Shuki pull a young has been asked by Martini to concoct brand new chocolate to mark the occasion. Well Uncles Ben. Ryland sat down with Paula. littler Elliot to talk about the creative and practical processes of marrying chocolate with such such a famous drink. Plus they enjoyed a little bit of tasting along the way I have the great privilege of being approached by fantastic brands And a half to love the brand and all I have to love the product that the brand of created and for me it has to be natural. Ashby pure and ask interesting. And I've known the Martini brand for for decades. I remember adverts in the nineteen eighties with a particular on roller skates. trae Martini and the any time any place. Any were to have a Martini so so it was. It was always a happy memory for me. So when they approach and said we've got these new reserve special and brought on Rubino for Moose my East pricked up because I'm not a beer drinker. Call volume alcohol drinker. Let one night champagne and spirits. But I like Negroni old-fashioned says bitter sweet flavors because you can have them over ice on their own stop blending them and for me. Obviously I have to blend into the chocolate. So the challenge for me was taking the two commutes on brought her which is a a number color and the Rabin which is this ruby color from youth and taste them dilute pair them with chocolate. Let's try and find a combination that celebrates negroni because the centenary celebration of Negroni without the chocolate distorting the flavors and characters in the botanical in the two Moose but also the vermouth are very complex. And they've got that distinct bitter sweetness to they can easily distort the chocolate as well so it was actually an opportunity for me to work with them on getting that balance. Absolutely right Let's take quite a long time. We always think about the delicacies Kasese that can go with a glass of wine for example. What it it's fairly common knowledge that certain foods should go with a glass of wine? Don't sit down to a lovely gloss of red wine and then and and then tuck into a box of chips not good idea that we often don't think about that same sort of methodology when it comes to pairing something something we chocolate. How do you know what goes well with chocolate? It's a really good question in two parts to it. When I when I first started in chocolate a quite few years I would be guilty? If you've ever analyzing and I think it it's the way some people take chocolate which is if you're doing it professionally or academically you do have to have a process of pinpointing and finding all of us delicate compounds flavors and tastes to the point where you're deciding whether this chocolate is fine. Quality with beans have been fermented well of picked well or and so on and so you really digging in Bolt for me when it comes down to it. I have to take it back to base level when I smell it smell texture to like the taste from beginning middle and end and Roy after the after taste does it work with ingredients and now you get people who will say what wine and chocolate hard to pair. I find it very easy to pair. That's because I've tasted a lot of chocolate and a lot of wine and I can think about those flavors starting out and you taste piece of chocolate. How would you know which one to pick their hundreds if not thousands of them on the shelf to boy Oy? It's really difficult and all I say is by and tastes and eat what you like. Try It if you think it doesn't work. You're probably right because you own your tongue on your taste spots. And if it pairs well great. An I have always with all my tastings and events set to people if you prefer eating or milk white or dark chocolate with a cup of tea fantastic few think it works for you. It probably does but when it comes down to do you like if you do great no matter what anybody else says because you a half to want to eat again and again and again I'm almost runner of the cadbury cream egg at with the woman dipping hurt chips into a cream egg. Yeah well salty and sweet is massive business. The chocolate industry tree lady is not as crazy as she looked. She has no But I I do have a box of beautiful chocolates in front of me and you just pulled me a gloss of the move which was very kind of you for this time of day. A little SIP exactly Tell me tell me first. What vermouth measuring? This has gone brought us. This is the amber colored very light fresh smell wise. I've got fruit and it has to me sympathy botanical. Medicinal that's not meant to be a negative Tiv- term. I remember as a child having buttercup Syrup as a medicine and Dundee Line serapis kind of things those botanical can pass over very successfully into a Moose yes and drinks and this has that element of bitter sweet to it which if you think about bittersweet flavor dark chocolate is bittersweet already got a really good foundation and having having having a taste It's light on the tongue but the aftertaste is really really long It's beautiful sweet as well. But not over not overpowering only switch cleverly made it very sweet not overly sweet at the beginning and then this kind of botanical bitter dryness comes in the end and the chocolate made with it is the blue and gold marbled finish which represents the best colors on the buttocks. It's a beautiful bottle. Ferry Italian design obviously and sticking with Martini brand absolutely. I think if you are familiar with the Martini a line of Vermouth e you probably would be impressed by this particular RESERVA SPATULA pull. Educate me on how I should be eating the chocolates with the truth. We've had a drink of Mussa. Still got the flavor. There have a bite of one of the chocolates list. It's the blue and gold when it has a very soft center of white chocolate. We've got some Bombay Sapphire Gin. We've the VERMOUTH in there. Got Some Madagascans chocolate. which is thought delicate fruity chocolate? And very little else the predominant ingredient in that is the vermouth because I wanted that flavor to to last on the tongue. And it's it's a gorgeous balance. The dark chocolate is just bitter sweet enough like the vermouth. Once you've had the first bite and it's melted and swallowed. I have a bit more. Vermouth just passed me. A A glass of Rabin now I suppose that means that well to be polite I would have to try some of this. You would have to try that one as well this array of full of flavor for me I get kind of a smell of time leaves and herb Leary is very very very smooth. A little a bit Rich in feeling flavor and that's represented in the chocolate as well. We've got that lovely Madagascar chocolate again. But they could nash the filling inside. I just heavier more full needs a bit more impact. Bit more strength to it. So it doesn't get lost in the Renault so now that we've had some of the redeem we should be tasting some of the chocolate or I'd have made the chocolates a half dome a very smooth surface and a dark chocolate can inside Very very different indeed this one. Yeah very dock inside and a much more pungent hit it take. It took a long time to find the right chocolates to work with the to the most because Kosta so complex for example. If you choose orange which I love chocolate and orange you instantly got. I honestly know which chocolate to put with it to get that nostalgic fail. I love chocolate orange. What this it was? Try again try again try again. It's absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to have something that is quite unusual all to work with both familiar. It's funny how I haven't had either the Vermouth to start with but the familiarity and some of the botanical in. I don't know where that's from. I'm from my many years past of tasting and eating but there is something in them and all my team who tried to. There's something in recognized but I don't know what it is. I think a lot of people might say I've I've never had vermouth on its own. I've had a Martini Shaken oster Martini or I've had it as a mix of had it in an aground. Have I had it with chocolate would would I tried it if it wasn't in the chocolate maybe not so my job and my responsibility is just to inspire people to try something different. Because that's what I've had the opportunity. It's due to create the chocolates. I think you've done very well. Thank you so much. That was really
