"The documentary chasing Coral premiered in July 2017 and it is a powerful film and since we've been talking about coral reef conservation at the shop thought it would be good to do a review of chasing Coral here on scuba Shack Radio. I watched it again a few days ago and it was just as impactful as the first time I saw. The documentary was conceived by Richard veevers who is currently CEO of the ocean agency. Richard worked at a top London advertising agency before he got involved with a passion on Ocean conservation. He was working on a project called Excel Caitlin Seaview survey regarding images of coral reefs that's where he started to understand the impacts of coral bleaching. Around this time. He watched a documentary called Chasing Ice produced by Jeff orloski and chasing Coral was born. I thought I'd give some key statistics on what it took to put together chasing Coral first. It took about three years to shoot over 500 hours of incredible underwater footage off. There were Thirty countries contributing to the documentary and more than 500 volunteers involved just an incredible effort. The film won the People's Choice Award for best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding nature documentary. Jeff Orlowski was originally from Staten Island, New York. He went to Stanford to study anthropology got into filmmaking and worked on the Extreme Ice survey that turned into Chase nice in 2009. He found it exposure Labs a production company focused on socially relevant issues. So chasing Coral is really about the quest to document with imagery a coral bleaching event. By reviewing what was happening at carries forward Reef in in the Florida Keys and at airport Reef in America Samoa. They determined that they would need to build a viable underwater time lapse camera. That's when they go to a company in Boulder. Colorado called view into the blue and they were going to build a housing. That would keep it self clean. It just so happens the exact Rego works at view Into the Blue. He describes himself as a coral nerd and becomes a main player in the documentary. With the cameras developed, they deploy to Hawaii Bermuda and the Bahamas and they put down their cameras and wait a couple months to get the images. It's a failure. The images are out of focus a lost opportunity. It's back to the drawing board to fix the problems before their next attempt. The next opportunity is on the Great Barrier Reef. They head out deploy their cameras and wait a large typhoon impacts their plans. So they read the place to another Island lizard Island, but they aren't able to take any of their special cameras the team needs to do time lapse manually that means going out every day setting up the camp exactly as before and getting the photos painstaking and exhausting after more than a hundred days. They complete the work over that timeframe. The coral has bleached died and his overgrown by algae Zack is extremely emotional at this incredible loss. It's crazy to think of water temperatures at 95° Fahrenheit, but that's what it was dead. Another team went to New Caledonia where they observed an amazing phenomenon fluorescent corals an attempt to Shield itself from the temperatures an amazing sight am amazing colors just before bleaching extremely sad to see the corals stunning last gasps. The documentary continues with Zach and Richard presenting their work at the international coral reef Symposium in Hawaii the time lapse photography of the coral reef dying over a two-month period of dramatic and overpowering the reaction of the attendees demonstrates the sadness. The film wraps up with Jack diving with one of his Heroes doctor Charlie Verona Pioneer in Coral research and conservation. They are diving on a beautiful unimpacted part of the reef off Charlie reflects back on maybe he didn't do enough. Maybe we all need to do more. Corals are being assaulted on many fronts not just climate change but pollution sunscreen and carelessness citizens are trying and we need our governments to act as well. Perhaps a new day is Dawning. If you haven't yet seen chasing Coral. You can find it on Netflix. Please find a time. You won't be disappointed. If you've already watched it believe me. It's worth watching again. We can't let them

Spurge is the Word
"Name's Nathan Taylor and I I've been studying you for is for about the about seven years now. Hey Sand Yeah and I particularly focus on a little group called the section Nisa film which is sort of the San Matt like Lance so like spotted spurs prostrate splurge those weedy plants that you get your Your Line Darden. That have that White Milky Sap yet. It's cool that the you know. Those are something I grew up recognizing I mean. I didn't know what they were as a child. But it's it's a familiar group of plants to me you know. I think a lot of people that don't live in arid regions at least. That's probably their main introduction to the Spurs family. But I'm curious. What brought you to this in the first place. We always plant person. And how did you discover you four? Ac's kind of your your focus. Yeah so the main way that I found plants is I live in Dallas. I at the time and I was told by my family that we were moving out to the desert. And where you know. There wasn't really any lush vegetation at all and in the spring. I just saw all kinds of wildflowers and being the kind of person that I am. Naturally I wanted to identify every single one that I saw hand. It just kind of snowballed there now. How I got interested in You. Four via is. I had a mentor of time. Whose name is Bert Williams. And he he knew basically all of the local on the southern highpoints Texas and you four was really just the one group that he sort of just assigned the genus name to and didn't even try with a species. So I I sort of took. That is a challenge and from there when I went to Soros to get my Bachelor's and master's I decided that the best way to study these things would be just a photograph every species in the specimen cabinet. And then go back and look at those at home. Well it turns out that some of the species. That photograph were actually misidentification. Ooh that that added a at an added another Another way to sort of you know. Just push me right into into the groove things. That's a really interesting dive into this world. And from a standpoint of sort of species identification and taxonomy I mean some of the Spurs family's pretty easy to recognize although there's probably plenty of minute details but others can be pretty cryptic which I'm guessing lens to some of the taxonomic end species. Id Confusion You just mentioned definitely. Yeah I mean every every time I go to a herbarium I ended up with a a really good big Saka misidentified before so. This is a big family. And it's one of those that every time I think I have my finger on the pulse of what's going on. I see a few representatives that completely blow my mind in. Send me for a loop but how do you begin to even focus in a family as large as before be acn? I guess from there. We can kind of talk about the subdivisions within that group. Right so I mean the the big thing with you for AC. I mean I'm not. I'm not a huge expert on four. Ac as a whole but but it's really sort of divided by the power structure. You know some some species have pedal some don't Actually probably most of them are money. Isis and then with you for specifically you have the ATM and the site in is is sort of this. Modified infrared essence. That looks like a flower. It's sort of like the composite family in that. It has this the Sudan via this false flower that made up of of an invalid occur and then Various flowers in the middle of it. It is pretty wild to think about that in the context of it being in fluorescence in. It's one of those things that when you say or see anyone on the Internet say you forget. Flowers already. Goes actually. It's a safe but it is a really fascinating structure in it. I'm guessing is kind of what makes you for AC unique or one of the characters that Kinda unites a lot of them Under this taxonomic umbrella definitely and it. It is the essentially. The uniting structure of Euphoria message genus very cool. So how did you end up falling? Into the subgroup Are With the chemist icy type growth form that we've mentioned earlier something that I think a lot of people especially if you live in urban areas or have a sidewalk near your house can probably recognize so it fits into a couple of categories for me that I sort of came to appreciate early on and For whatever reason I really like we species and I really like plants that are small and so this is spit imperfectly for me. And in the fact that the Trans Pecos region of Texas. Which isn't that far away for. Me Is sort of the center of diversity for the group. That's sort of where the plants evolved initially he? The region has sort of a representative of all of the major lineages within this within the section. Oh that's really cool. And so they've just sort of radiated outwards from there and made their way up into the super tempered areas. I'm guessing now because of human activity can be found over a much wider range than the initially would have in a natural setting right right. I mean that that said the you know the the group is actually to diversified on its own worldwide. Yeah so I mean except for the Arctic climates course but yeah it especially in desert. The plants love desserts and really sort of exploded in biodiversity In desert regions around the world. That's excellent and in thinking about the success of a group like this that can conquer so many different types of habitats. I you just said the desserts I see them in temperate zones see them in wet habitats. See them in prairies. A lot of that comes down to the fact that they figured out how to utilize a lot of different types of photosynthetic systems. Right yes yes and actually it is the only see for Winnie edge in phobia and within the section. You actually have both see photosynthesis and an intermediate to photosynthesis which not many people know about. I didn't know that that the but yeah. So it's it's a cool sort of intermediary step that uses a a two carbon molecules sort of funnel the the Co two to the bundle sheath cells instead of a a c four molecule like malic acid and came ascites also has a single C. three plant. Euphoria and Gus Sir. So C four photosynthesis really did serve. Diversify I with this section in this film group he I may have mentioned And basically that sort of the old genus name for it so still switching taxing on gears a little bit if I if I say that that's okay. It's hard to keep up sometimes especially with such complexity in morphology in types in you know this is a group. People generally pay attention to so. Of course there's going to be a lot of changes and updates. But I'm GONNA on the subject of photosynthetic Percy it may be the only genus known that also had as pam it has all those for photosynthetic systems so like the the second species in Africa. He those are actually cam plants so like like tactile out West so you have a wad of diversity in this group as far as photosynthetic systems. It's pretty wild because you know they're plants. Photosynthesis is kind of the main stay of that entire lineage of organisms for the most part and to think about all of the variety in that system you could possibly have. I mean just the thought that there could be an intermediate step between this the C. Two thing that I had never even heard of before until now and I'm wondering if you know is there any indication of what the sort of the end type was for this group or for you phobia in general or is it kind of independent evolutionary trajectories depending on where these originated in how they diversified into what kinds of habitats right right so the the origin of euphoria in general? Masada occur in sort of the South Pacific islands around New Caledonia And it sort of a one of a most ancestoral fees. It's actually not a euphoria. It's I can't remember Gina's name off the top of my head but it has a site apium but it's not quite as well structured as a regular you forget ended sort of a sort of a shrub plants in in that area now the the origin of section in this film. I know a lot more about their a lot of really cool features that sort of unite this group but one of the main things is that I mean it it. It evolved from plants. That looked more. Like let's say the gophers purge so like four elaborate before the rigid That sort of SEO like structure the seventeen setiawah basically it. It has this of main stem with with alternate leaves But the emperor essence is sort of KSM with the world of leaves at the base and then it has Casal Branson's That sort of come off that importance and all on that occasion it has opposite leaves he in section and this film they only have opposite leaves. They don't have any alternate leaves at all and that sort of led to the speculation that basically announce analogous to a an import about SC group

And this is business wars daily on this Tuesday may twenty-first these days, it's not easy being a beermaker craft beers have become victims of their own success. The fizzy artisanal stuff is become so popular that being a beer, entrepreneurs, practically an occupational category of its own craft beer battles are enough to send any beer company, owner to drink. You saw that one coming, right? Especially nowadays, because beer-drinking is actually well shrinking, which brings us to the latest in craft beer collaboration, Boston beer, the company behind Sam Adams is buying dogfish head ale for three hundred million dollars, but this acquisition is not actually about the bruise, according to Boston beer, founder, Jim cook beer sales are losing market share to wine and hard liquor. According to the beer institute, so savvy brewers like Boston beer are turning to alter. Unitive 's although sales of its flagship beverage, Boston lager, fell by double digits last year, apparently customers were pounding down. It's hard cider in spike seltzer. Now cook is thinking ahead trying to figure out not what next year's beverages should be. But what the next decades drinks should be. That's where dogfish head founder, Sam Kelly. Joni comes in. It looks like coke wanted Caledonia's well known creativity just as much as dogfish is successful sour beers. And as why for two reasons, actually, I because the seven thousand strong craft beer market is unlikely to get any less competitive second because big beer has been buying its way into the microbrews market since twenty eleven bud. Light maker Anheuser-Busch has been on a buying spree acquiring. At least ten brewers from coast to coast. Today, the king of beers is the country's largest craft brewer believe it or not for the owner. Her of Sam Adams that kind of competition calls for innovation and dogfish. Head's Cal Joni has a reputation for quirky creativity. He started dogfish years ago, making beer out of overripe cherries in a homemade still in his dorm room. He's out on a limb enough that a two thousand eight New Yorker profile of him featured, a photo of the entrepreneur, apparently naked sitting in a beer barrel. Plastered with mash, the picture suggests who knows exactly what he'll come up with next that out of the barrel. Thinking is just what Boston beers cook is making a bet on he wants called Cal Joni.

Welcome to weekend from the BBC World Service with me.

He thought that actually the British were as much to blame for the war. The Germans if I'm Ashley wrote in a letter Fritz curve, he did not hate. But he wasn't a pacifist.

Jeff McAllister is here American journalist lawyer and author more from them throughout the arrows. We begin in New Caledonia, which is an archipelago of two hundred and sixty eight thousand inhabitants in the southwest Pacific Ocean. The island chain has been part of France since eighteen fifty three but today it's residents have been voting on whether to sever those. Those ties with the French Republic and gain independence. It's an issue that New Caledonians have been grappling with for decades. These islanders shared their thoughts on the vote. We'll be independent. We were colonized for a long time. We will be decolonized. Honestly, I would prefer for New Caledonia to stay with France. We'll have more aid without France. I hope we wouldn't become like Vanuatu with wealth losses and a devalued currency. Well, the BBC's Phil Mercer is following events from Sydney a little bit of context and timescale. First of all Phil why is this happening? Now what's been the build up to today? Well, it goes back many many years to the new mayor accord of nineteen ninety eight that was the culmination of years of peace talks between French authorities and Kanak indigenous people of new Canada, they have for a very long time agitated against colonization by France a few years after the French colonize New Caledonia in eighteen seventy eight Kanak fighters murdered dozens of French settlers, including families, the retaliation by the French was brutal. Their soldiers killed and execute. Hundreds of Kanak people. It nearly fell into the archipelago full-scale civil war a nineteen Eighty-eight Kanak militants then Julian killed four policemen and took more than twenty others hostage in cave that siege was brought to an end by French special forces and about nineteen rebel fighters were killed and in the years that followed there were various peace talks brokered by France. And one is the promises was that in time. There would be a vote for independence and today that moment is arrived. And I believe voting is just finished as it is. We are expecting a result in the next few hours. If you believe opinion polls said they have been suggesting for quite a long time that New Caledonia will stick with France by quite a sizable majority, but quite a few voters going to the polls today. Well undecided. So nothing can be taken for granted. But even if there is a no vote today there are provisions. Wins under that new mayor accord, new mayor by the ways the capital of New Caledonia that would allow for two more votes on independence in one thousand nine hundred twenty and twenty twenty two. So it's a very sensitive issue. Of course, the people of New Caledonia Julian of been asking to decide their future and their future under an independent flag. Or is it has been for many many years under the control of the French a hint the divisions there how they played out during the actual campaigning. They've brought these simmering sensitivities to the surface at the heart of the independence movement. In New Caledonia is the indigenous people the Canucks now they make up just under forty percent of the population. But they do complain about persistent discrimination and economic inequality, and they say that the vote is about their fundamental right of self-determination many young connects do. Feel shut out of the economy. The economy is is dominated by a white elite for the most part and people voting. No, many of those would also have economic anxiety is about what would happen if they were to split from France to go it alone. What would happen to all the French money? The pause into New Caledonia. So there are economic concerns on both sides of the argument, but it would seem according to those opinion polls that the status quo is to be maintained for now. At least as you know, I have to get in the studio with me who are listening to you. Neither would claim to be New Caledonian experts. I think it's fair to say, but they may have questions to pose to what's maybe in your mind as as Phil Mercer listens. So I guess fill. It sounds like this vote is to split across kind of indigenous Kanak votes, the ones going to be voting for independence and the French against be voting to stay with France, obviously. But is that clearcut if Kanak indigenous Canucks make up forty percent of the population is that how the vote is going to go. Do you think? Well, there are various groups agitating for change and for no change about five groups have been campaigning for a yes. Vote in for a no vote. So it's not a campaign that split evenly into two camps. As it were. I think it does also shine a light on colonisation in the South Pacific. We've recently had Britain's Prince Harry in his new wife touring Fiji and Tonga Tonga is the only monarchy left in the South Pacific Fiji was once a British colony and it's been racked by various coups over the years. So the South Pacific can be quite certain an unstable place and people who have voting to remain with France in New Caledonia believe that those links with the French have given New Caledonia the sort of financial stability that other parts of the South Pacific perhaps haven't had. So it's a fascinating area to travel in and around you have Papua New Guinea Vanuatu. And of course, New Caledonia that set hugely popular with tourists as well. So it's a it's a very diverse region the South Pacific, but at times caught an unstable places. Well, Jack McCallister uninterested in this. Triple barreled ref. Forensic system. Where one result is not considered to be sufficient, especially if the results are relatively decisive. I mean, a good majority on one side. Why is there this additional system of making sure? This all goes back to the new mayor accord in the late nineteen ninety nineties that was the result of those peace talks in the late eighties and nineties the who is following that separatist violence, and the reason that these provisions for additional referenda of being inserted into the new mayor accord back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight walls to try to alleviate those separatists concerns that France over the years has given greater autonomy to the local assembly. And then you may accord does say that if there is sufficient support in the local assembly about thirty percents support for another vote, then there will be so even if there is a no result today, we could well be back in the similar position of New Caledonians being asked to decide on their constitutional future as it were in two years time and perhaps again in four years time. Phil, thank you very much. Phil.

Julia Morica coming up this week sees all US sanctions on Iran being reimposed in the wake of the decision by President Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal that was agreed back in twenty fifteen one potential reason for the move is to force regime change, but how likely is that the reimposition of sanctions, obviously, make a difficult situation for the Iranian regime, even more difficult, but I'm not sure if many observers, including the Trump administration actually expects these sanctions to lead to a regime change in it on more of those thoughts to come in this hour, but we begin with voters in the Pacific islands of New Caledonia who are taking part in a referendum on whether the territory should gain independence from France. The French government has said it will recognize and abide by the results of the referendum. New Caledonia has seen deep divisions between its indigenous people can. Ax and Europeans who live there. These islands shed their thoughts on the vote. Will be independent. We were colonized for a long time. We will be decolonized. Honestly, I would prefer for New Caledonia to stay with France will have more aid without France. I hope we wouldn't become like Vanuatu with wealth losses and devalued currency. What our correspondent Phil Mercer is watching events from Sydney, Australia, you better put New Caledonia on the map for his first of all fill. Where exactly is it. Well, if you look at a map of Australia about fifteen hundred kilometers off, the east coast of Australia lies, the tropical archipelago of New Caledonia. It was colonized by France in eighteen fifty three and in many ways, the ethnic and racial divisions. That persist today were born back at that time of colonization at the heart of the independence movement is New Caledonia's indigenous people, they are as you say the Canucks, and they make up about forty percent of the population that they do complain Julian about persistent discrimination and economic inequality, and they believe that this vote is all about their fundamental right of self-determination on the other side of the campaign. We have those who are determined to stay with FRANZ, many of those have their own economic anxieties, and they believe that breaking away from FRANZ could have very serious financial consequences. What the polls. Indicate the likely result is going to be. Well, many opinion polls predicting that New Caledonia will reject independence. But during voting today, it was clear that quite a few voters were undecided as they were going to the polling stations. But all those polls do indicate that the status quo will be maintained. However an accord signed in nineteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight the new Mia accord, new mayor is the capital of New Caledonia. It said that under certain circumstances. More votes on independence could be held in New Caledonia in twenty twenty and twenty twenty two. So regardless of the vote today, it seems that the issue will persist in the years to come and how much does this matter to France. Well earlier this year. President Emmanuel Macron was visiting new Mia a New Caledonia. He said that France would be less beautiful without New Caledonia. He has stayed stayed largely out of the campaign largely out of the debate leaving it up, of course, to the people of New Caledonia. I think France is very keen to keep hold of New Caledonia not for any colonial reason. But really to counter growing Chinese influence in the South Pacific France has had a long history in this region. And I do get the sense that Paris would like to maintain its presence in the region alongside its partners, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Phil. Thank you very much.

We begin in New Caledonia an archipelago of two hundred and sixty eight thousand inhabitants in the southwest Pacific. The island chain has been part of France since eighteen fifty three. But today it's residents have been voting on whether to sever those ties with the French Republic and gain independence. It's an issue that New Caledonians have been grappling with for decades.

We'll have more aid without France. I hope we wouldn't become like Vanuatu with wealth losses and a devalued currency will let speak to our correspondent Phil Mercer who's following events from Sydney fill a momentous day for New Caledonians as this has been a referendum long in the making. But why has it taken so long? Well, this was born out to the new mayor accord, a nineteen ninety eight and a accord named after the capital as New Caledonia, and that's agreement came about after peace talks in the nineteen eighty s and nineteen ninety s between French authorities and Canucks. They are the indigenous people of New Caledonia the has been a history of ethnic tension and violence in the archipelago dating back to colonization and back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight there was a promise that a vote for independence would be held and several years later, many years later that moment has finally arrived and today New Caledonians have the opportunity either to stick with France or go it alone as an independent nation. Now, France has been a very keen for them to stay. Why is that and what has France been saying about the benefits of staying? Well, the French president Emmanuel Macron was in New Caledonia earlier this year, he has stayed largely out of the campaign. He did say in you Mia that he acknowledged the pain of colonization and said that France would be less beautiful without New Caledonia race safe to say that it is strategically important for France to have that sort of presence in the South Pacific. Traditionally it's been Australia and New Zealand that have been the the powerful colonial forces along with Britain in the region. But there is a concern that China's rising influence in the South Pacific needs the sort of offset if you like of French, Australia New Zealand and British interests. So there are many reasons why people believe that New Caledonia should stick with France. But of course, with lots of voters undecided vote the result of the vote is unclear so it's unclear some polls are predicting a clear vote for remaining. In france. But even if that were the case, this would be the last of the issue, would it. Yes. That's absolutely, right. If photos decided against the independence, the new Mia accord of nineteen ninety eight does have provision under certain circumstances for two more votes on independence in two thousand nine hundred twenty and twenty twenty two. So even if it's not today, this issue is far from resolved Filmer certain city. Thank you mature elections in the United States are traditionally seen as a referendum on the sitting president something which Donald Trump will no doubt be keenly aware of as he criss crosses the country. Making his case at rallies to his Republican base ahead of Tuesday's crucial vote the two main issues. He's campaigning on our immigration and the economy while leading Democrats, like former President Barack Obama have made the president himself and the way he governs the issue in their campaign speeches speeches at stake for both. Parties is control of the two houses of congress. The Democrats are tipped by the polls to take the house of representatives while the Republicans are favored to keep control of the Senate, but opinion polls show many races to be hanging on knife-edge with polls opening in less than seventy two hours from Washington.
