That's where she leaves and on a given day you might find mex- peering inside fish guts to say what's inside but actually there's a whole lot more going on if you're dissecting a fish you should be polite to it. You shouldn't treat it like a crappy specimen you should treat it like a relative or at least a formerly living being. If that's not part of your cosmology we got special permission to return the animal guts to the land where we got them as a as a form of respect recognizing that we sort of interrupted cycles by removing something from its environment so we put it back and you can see that from an indigenous cosmology that you return people back to the land or you can see it from zane ecological perspective that nutrient circulation is really important. So fish don't belong incinerators. You can

"Ferdinand magellan is often credited with being the first person to circumnavigate the earth. However this isn't true. I don't mean this in the same way that columbus wasn't the first european in the americas because the vikings made it to newfoundland. I i mean magellan never circumnavigated the earth at all period. The magellan voyage did not set out travel around the world. The purpose of the mission was to find a western route to the spice islands. Or what we now call indonesia. They set out in fifteen nineteen only twenty seven years after columbus first landed in the bahamas in fourteen. Ninety two the magellan voyage really just set out to achieve with the columbus expedition tried to to reach asia by sailing west.

Leanne Betasamosake Simpson Discusses the Inspiration for Her Record 'Theory of Ice'
"In many parts of North America. It's about time for the melt. Some people call it the spring thaw or the break up. It's the period of time when days get longer and warmer and slowly, lakes covered with ice start to crack up. I had never heard this before as the ice days. Frozen for so long and in Newfoundland, and it wasn't until they moved Ontario and I was sitting by a lake One time that I heard these massive cracks that sounded like rifle shots are like big pings. Scared me half to death, to be honest and those of the sounds that inspired this song. I stepped over a watery it just Hey, fellows, the canoe a car seat. Nice. She paddles to the edge to collect candles, Mr One drink. You should Jax well, it's still easier. The N V. Da Samo Se Simpson would break up. Leanne is one of the most renowned writers and scholars in Canada. She tells stories and poems and makes music. Often focused on her Inish nobby heritage and tradition. Lee and B to C. MOC. Simpson's new record is called Theory of ice, and it begins with that scene. I was just talking about the vice breaking and melting. And we richly end in Peterborough, Ontario. Hi. Welcome to the show that Tom Power How are you? Nice to talk to you. Congratulations. On the record. I really loved it. Thanks so much. You know what I mean about it being sort of scary when the ice cracks? I absolutely know what you mean. The sounds are almost otherworldly. How do you How do you describe him like thunder? Sometimes they kind of sound. I mean, they kind of sound like aliens are landing. I think that shotgun is a good metaphor for them. But if you haven't heard that sounded, so it's a really Really, really powerful, jarring sounds that ice makes. So Where were you When you were making this record that you were hearing those sounds so much. I had the honor of spending time on the shores of Blatchford like in the Northwest territories, both during break up and and freeze up. And those times air just phenomenal times of the year because they're such massive transformations taking place on the land and in the in the water. And so, hearing those sounds and watching this process of melting and freezing and melting and freezing. And eventually the lake moving from this this amazing skating rink, maybe two. Almost like a dram er, a percussive instrument with this frozen layer on top, and then ending up in this this beautiful deep sort of pool of water was something that really fascinated. Me and a whole bunch of different levels.
Born free, photographed free, living free
"Joe. Jura professional advertising photographer. Your passion lies in wildlife until the vn advocacy as well did did that come out of photographing commercially or or has that always been the way that you've got this. Deep fascination for wildlife and the wildlife fascination begun knows very little seeing the film born free and then having little plastic animals and you know just growing up with it bit. My photography started off in a completely different direction. I wanted to be a repechage documentary photographer. So and the wildlife didn't come to weigh much later. Neither did the repechage for that matter. Because i realized my skill set was more about imagination. Conceptual coming up with ideas so so as a ripple taj new news repechage. Is that what you saw yourself. That's right. i was age. Fifteen or sixteen men are living in scotland and i used to go out and graft political marches and rock against racism events and things like that just because i thought that was the way to get into it. You don't start off really badly. The first first event went on ludi the film properly you know so it was a learning process but then really one side Myself off to photography college. I realized that i was heading in a different direction. I do want to talk about More generally about you'll you'll work with with federal graphing animals and wildlife. In in the second part we do but it but i think that we have some sort of bridge here between between the commercial work and entering the industry and then ending up working with boom freeze a foundation So so let let's bridge. That's a bit and if we cannon precis fashion what what happened well. I had my heart set on coming to london and getting into that. The advertising conceptual photography world. And i did that and the i kinda set myself goals to get a billboard poster or win an award after a while. I just had this urge from photography to really mean something. I was saying these campaigns that were being seen and being well received. And i still enjoy doing those. I don't want to stop doing that. But i just wanted. My work to kind of achieve something in a couple of shoots came up where i had the chance to incorporate wildlife photography graffiti into what i was doing and it was There was a book on you bass next week about my boot translocation and that allowed me to combine those two worlds in a way that i haven't seen done before lately done new direction and that was for me off and running towards wildlife further down the road once. I don not sort of work. I got in touch the born free foundation because they were the wildlife charts whose work i really admired and contacted them about doing some work and took off from that so with all these projects. Full foundations light. Boone free ngos and and and and things like that. I would imagine at first. Is something that you have to invest financially in as well because nobody's gonna say well. George is possibly money help us. Not they definitely don't and the luckily i was busy. Enough with my commissioned work to allow me to go off and do this on a tangent and And to a degree by commission work subsidized my experiments with wildlife photography and a few trips to africa and yes and that was once. I got a taste for that and realized how much liked it especially still trying to combine it with my style. I was often running. And yet i've been doing that ever since a not was fourteen years ago and it had to be africa because that's where the lions are had to be lions. It hot to be lines. I'm absolutely borderline obsessed with them. And i've been since i was a little a child and i do realize i did almost often Polar bears a couple years back. And i know born free. Want me to go to india to do to work on tiger project so i haven't ignored the other continents completely each time you go to africa so different. Note no matter where you go you know. I've covered most of the countries. I've got a good wildlife population so And and that should be there now. I know well how. Yeah i i wanted. Well ascot's envy you send you mentioned. It clearly has affected. But how much have you year were. You hoping to be lost it. This would have been in twenty twenty hoping to be out there well for the last ten years. I've been averaging for five trips a year usually a month time of three or four weeks a time and that usually ties in with a plan for armed for you want me to to work on personally. I'd i'd go anyway. I'm never happier than bouncing into the african dawn in newfoundland rover and just saying you know what's
"newfoundland" Discussed on Beekeeping Today Podcast
"Border with a gap that size. You're pretty safe from the swarm or a drifting be. I would guess so. Be if roy is going to show up on your island somebody had to bring it there. Really help from humans. Debate knows for all night. Well you mentioned sentinel apiaries and you've got those like australia does your ports. I know australia monitors those fairly fairly rigorously What else what other facets stew of going on. Let's say something came in in a boat and it didn't bother to stop it your sentinel apiary. Just leapfrog right over and kept going one really. Important component of the plan is the implementation of what we call be district where we've actually drawn lines in the sand across the island newfoundland and separating the mainland portion of labrador in the province and so by drawing these lines. Any be that that sneaks in a accidentally or unintentionally a to. Let's say the board of saint john's On the eastern side of the island might be able to spread between colonies in that region. But they're not going to be able to cross the be district line as long as the beekeepers comply with the test. Before you cross the line policy that we're recommending and so the the the benefit is that by dividing this this island and its population into a few different regions even if we have an incursion and one we could fight it back there or even eliminate the bees there and then repopulate using the clean roar free stock in other regions. So how do you see this line with. The nice thing about newfoundland is that it's very difficult for a wild storm or feral swarm to take off and find a tree to live at. The trees are not very big. The climate is not very forgiving. There's not really enough. A fallen for a rogue swarmed go often build wax. Fill it up with honey and then last through the winter without some some assistance so unlike many places in the world where a you know the best efforts of beekeepers are thwarted by swarms picking up diseases and then spreading them around newfoundland is is pretty well able to avoid that so we know where the beekeepers all our and another component of the plan is mandatory registration of apiaries With the provincial. Apiarists if we know where the beekeepers are and the beekeepers now that they shouldn't be crossing that line. We don't have to worry too much about the bees making the flights themselves. I guess it sounds like a tough place to keep bees. I would. I would figure on marginal side of The beekeeping spectrum and and There's not a lot of agriculture here. In the provinces well they're vast expanses of Of black spruce foil for us in marshlands where where there's little of interest honey and but there are still many areas in the province where you can't keep ps and i would stay with. We're still timing. Experimental phase trying to determine what what kind of an industry we can develop here. I know that in two thousand ten there were only six beekeepers the entire province with lesson two hundred and twenty colonies and now with all the the modern day interest in saving deeds and hope backyard home studying so line weeds growing rapidly to over one hundred thirty cheaper. So it's that rapid expansion in the craft and with ten or more people wanting to try and and make a living from beekeeping that we think that the risk of of a row incursion is is far greater than it used to be a dozen years ago. Yeah it sounds like it. Wow and most of these people are fairly new. And i have no experience with looking for raw Could have and not know it. Definitely i would guess your education program is exactly that at the forefront is what is it what does it do and how do i spot it. S the tests. That you're giving on the all. I would think also in the challenge would be if they do get a foothold in in in the country. They'd be hard some people to to treat for them. I would imagine if there's a lot of home steadying maybe i'm generalizing too much. But i think there would be a resistance to any any chemical treatments for the zero ellen. That's even something that we've dealt with the development of the plan because one thing we've suggested is for certain members of the sentinel program. It would be really advantageous if instead of having to take sticky board. Put a screen bottom board underneath your high of stick sticky board and then wait a few days or a week to see whether it might falls. It'd be it'd be much more convenient to go out and apply some kind of a treatment to knock down any theoretically present mites as quickly as possible. But we've already seen some push back to to those ideas about about which chemicals are people comfortable putting their hives given that we know that there are issues with residue issues with a city. And we know that the mites aren't even here and so bringing in all of those downsides of row treatment and not even having the mites is a pretty big ask for a small skill beekeeper who may still want to participate in the central. Yeah good point. Wow so so. You've got a good it. Sounds like you've got a pretty good plan is already in place is already set up your lines in the sand and your sentinel a periods and things going already. We discussed Many of the most important elements of of the plan at the two. Zero actual plan workshops that david participated in the way. He was a major presenter in august. Two thousand nineteen so now. We've released the plan last month. And we are waiting for response from the provincial government. There's a fair bit of homework for our for our government to attend to in terms of developing a crisis response. We gauge some changes to our animal health protection act. Give better tools to defend against for all as well as other tested pathogens and then we really need to recruit people to participate in volunteer sentinel late break program and we need to train are gatekeepers. The basic elements of monitoring testing using bottom boards. Sticky boards Alcohol washing so line as you pointed out because we are so naive fear. I don't know how do any of this but we need to learn very quickly. I can see one of the one of the advantages you have if you will. One of the other advantages is that is that when when we are testing for rural. Here we're looking for a level per so many bees. You're looking for one. Actually that's important that it's a it's either is or it isn't as opposed to a well. There's a little bit. So that makes it simpler on that. On that level as scientists or as as beekeepers a world where we accepted row as an inevitability we really worry about having a precise measurement we need to be able to do a test on the same colony three times and get the exact same measurements that we can estimate how many there are and that influences treatment decisions and things like that and newfoundland. We need an incredibly sensitive measuring. We need whatever will tell us. You know the. I might that we can possibly detect and it doesn't matter if there's one two or three there we just wanna get those mites as as quickly as possible so that we know that we need to activate whatever response mechanisms you know can be put into place. It sounds like a big job actually. All things considered getting getting people trained to do this and then getting people could do this and then having him continue to do it. I would guess that that's probably going to be even an even. Bigger challenge is yeah..

Except that there weren't any varroa mites there and so the way i explain it is everybody's got a decent picture of america in their head or at least every american does and then you can imagine the canada on top of that and You know that on the eastern side. There's some islands and so newfoundland is the island that you aren't picturing it's the one you've forgotten. That's a little further east and a little further north and all the rest of the and whether or not most americans know it. There are people there and and some of them are beekeepers and.

That's why we able to do this every single day of the finals. And we've got a few more to go. Today was a funny all day. We kind of previewed. It didn't we last night as much as the afternoon. Look like a much meaning to it. There was just not meaning. Those they were dead rubbers after all posted doubles and the singles and then the evening section. We always knew is going to be a knife edge type scenario you win. You guys drew you lose. You got home like a normal tournament. Let's start there showy because rough on the dow has beaten stefan pass in three sets. It wasn't like last year's when i didn't feel i thought it was. I mean i thought the dow played really. Well i've role. But i mean obviously there's no crime but last year they played a three center in and it was just epic. Wasn't it every every point felt like a a saga this. This didn't feel that that to me what to you. Know i felt like steph sits pass could have been prepared to die out there tonight and it still wouldn't have been enough He he cannot get close to the dull serve. I know there's the anomaly of the fact that he is beaten in one song clay Madrid in one thousand nine hundred. But let's just take that out of the equation and it's possible it's possible that sits has a bit of an adult problem And one that he's not getting any closer to solving think it's more than possible. I think he has a nidal problem. And i think he's a pretty big one. It's okay to have nato problem. Nidal is really really good. You know most of the world has had an adult problem for fifteen years. But he's not getting closer. It would sing and sits up past. Thinks he's got into dow problem doesn't am and he he's i it is he having seen his press conference. We'll talk about that in a minute. I think he will be going an obsessing for the next six weeks. Ah bat how to solve his dow problem matt's you you watched it what what jumped out at you from their match or yeah if i if you've got an adult problem. You've got a bit of a men's tennis problem haven't really because nadal is always going to be. There is a constant if you can't overcome the dull you're going to struggle to win the biggest tournaments i would. I would suggest certainly at the moment for the next year or two wall dolls exactly around anyway So yes short turn. That is going to be interesting to see whether sit to pass can overcome it. I think actually on one of those ones on clay. I think he's got so much more time to return the serve and he can step back and take some swings. Maybe that actually does help him against the door. But i completely agree with what you said. Catherine he just didn't didn't get near serve really for the whole match other than a fifteen minute spell which was weird and bizarre and suddenly he broke nidal twice twice in a row three times in a row. Maybe it was a very strange portion of the match. But i guess my main takeaway was kind of comparing to team the dull because that was the match we saw most recently and it felt like team has sustained threat against nadal whereas sits pass to me felt like he was relying on little moments and flashes of when his game was on and hoping that that would be enough to get him through. I didn't i didn't see a complete game plan really from him. And i think feeds into this wider thing of him being a bit confused about how to play a dollar and therefore it just always felt to me like the dole would win that match and in the end he won that third-set pretty pretty comfortably after after a shaky start

Nontraditional Fatherhood & Family | Trystan Reese
"That was a very strange child. I mean you know mom dad super supportive. Both my parents grew up extremely poor so my dad is the son of a coal miner. He's one of thirteen brothers and sisters. From how yeah. Which is a Appalachian Canadian Appalachian? Basically yeah and then. My mom is the daughter of a single mom. Who's a nurse? A Mum's dad died when she was very young. So now I'm curious. Has you go from Newfoundland to the desert in California? Yeah I mean. He decided as a kid looking around. You know in a very very podunk. Backwater place. Healthcare was a huge concern. And they just didn't have it and without many brothers and sisters you can imagine money was a huge issue. Healthcare was a huge issue in. My Dad actually had a very bad eyesight and no one really knew until he was a little bit older end. An aunt did like the whatever? The nineteen fifties version of crowdfunding. Is She like? Oh it's even nineteen forties on. Gosh where she like all the relatives to pitch in to to get my dad glasses and once he got glasses they realized he was extraordinarily bright and since he could see And he did some exercise in like fifth grade asked. What did you want to be when you grow up? And he wanted to be doctor and so he just decided that each tend to be a doctor and he put himself through medical school though. Koetter Yup and he met my mom. Undergrad and Montreal. He got into medical school in one day he was like well. Jan going to medical school. We show the break up or get married which we do and mom getting married so and so. That's very romantic. Way That my love story. I think my mother might have even had to break up with her her other boy time because I think in the fifties in sick a little bit like you just casually saw a couple of people and you know it wasn't a wasn't quite as official as it can be today but yeah so that's that's how they met and then medical school and then went to Vancouver. They had me and decided they were sick of the rain and moved to California. Not knowing that they're to a very conservative You know very sort of Military idea sort of area. Yeah was was that they`re. They're bent their belief system. They're not at all no no no. I mean they're very Canadian so like it's they're not like ridiculous. Not Hippies you know. They're not leftists. They're very pragmatic progressive like in Canada. It's like you just do your thing. You don't judge other people you don't stop them from doing it. And so they're very accepting in that sort of pragmatic way although they've taken in some extreme left turns Raising me and my sisters so sisters. How many to one younger one older. Yeah so you growing up in in this town in radically different value system and you're also starting to serve. I mean when you're really young do you have a sense of of gender at all or is it even anything you think about? I mean I don't remember feeling like there was something going on with my gender as a kid and I know that that's like It's like an inconvenient experience because we've sort of taught mainstream Americans that what is true about transgender people that were born in the wrong body. We knew it from the second we were sentient and our whole lives since then has been a fight to get our bodies rights and then we're cured and we can just keep moving on and I think that that narrative is true for some Trans People. Sure Service pretty well so far but I think now you know we're out of place where there's a little bit more room for different stories and my story is different like I. Just don't ever remember thinking about gender as a kid and because I had these you know pretty open parents. I was never forced into any particular box so there wasn't much to rebel against. Maybe if my mom had put me in the you know kids beauty pageants circuit at age five. Yeah maybe I would have had an early memory of being like. Oh this is terrible. I don't WanNa wear a Tiara but I don't you know I had. I had skinned knees. I was and I climb trees and chase chase my sisters around and this is normal childhood things I guess. Yeah I mean it's interesting that in the context of on one hand your parents like kind of like whatever and but then also living in a town which is sort of like a very socially conservative. And you didn't feel anything surly any any me to express it in the identities or anything youngest. It's just across the board even the town. I mean there were so many other ways in which I was different from my classmates you know I was an obsessive reader. I mean my mom still jokes that I would have a book in every room of the House of like the bathroom book the Kitchen Book. I mean we really my mom. I remember had to one day. Say Okay. I'm putting my foot down. You cannot be reading while we're having family dinner like put put the book down talk to us and then go back to your stories and so that was very strange in my school like it was very weird that I read in school. Those who burned up you know like word games and puzzles and then I was really into theater and plays and reading plays and learning musicals and I was just like so fucking weird in so many ways that it was like kind of my gender was the least of the worries. I was just of you know it was just a very different type of child than all the other children around me and so you know that really drove me to doing from a very young age doing theater. I mean when I was nine I knew that I loved musicals. Cut Bless my mother. She didn't know anything about music but watching me. Really start to like them age. Five six seven you know. I saw Annie the movie or something and from the eighties movie and I just loved it and so she would just go out of her way to you. Know drive US down to L. A. And the pantages theatre and cats. The musical. See you know Les Miz. He missed like she's just like worked so hard. She didn't have a parent really. Her mother worked so hard and and she idealized us her mother the single mom. Who is the nurse? Who was the only woman in their town who drove a car and would drive to work before the kids were up would come home after they were already in bed and then stay up late doing the laundry cooking the food. You know checking their homework only to get up and go to work the next day so she just thought she wanted to do the things that she know that her knew that her mother wished that she could have done and just go above and beyond to give us a childhood and to support all of our dreams and the ways that she just didn't really get not because her mom didn't water to But just because she couldn't practically swing it. Yeah so it sounds like feodor really became a place where you start to find a sense of acceptance and belonging just because that was a passion of yours. It's interesting to hear that I mean I'm thinking about to like my high school experience and they're always the groups you know like they're the distance that in this and that based largely on interest or or activities and stuff like that. I didn't see that maybe that maybe sort of like theater was a refuge for kids who felt like they didn't fit into sort of like other parts of the general community. Because that wasn't my group. I I don't really know but maybe is it has. Has it been your experience because I know you then went on like stayed really involvement in theory community that that is kind of a place that serves not just a sense of belonging but also refuse to a certain extent? I mean no question I think any any sort of misfit kid who had the least bit of creative talent and even if they didn't they did the lights you know it really did become the refuge and I think there is something really powerful about you know. Theater really means embodying different stories. In which means you're open a different stories and I think that does sort of set set set the stage so to speak for it being a community of of kids who just don't fit in other in other places so yeah it was really is really important to me both in school but especially outside of school doing community theatre and then going on to do professional theater. It was the place. Ri- was seen and accepted. I also got to play all these parts and I played the artful dodger got to do and as a kid in a small town. It's like there's already a shortage of male actors and so I just once I cut my hair just got to do all those parts which was another place where I could just sort of explorer masculinity and and have it be super-safe an accepted. I found an old review of me as artful dodger age like fourteen or fifteen and I think they even said like those who do not know. This actor is not male. You know we'll be. We'll we'll never. We'll those who do not know. This actor is not male will never be the wiser or something and so they basically complimented me on my passability at age fourteen. Which again is like major foreshadowing but Yeah
Where's Canada's worst housing crisis?
"Wrote on P. is rental market not the type of thing You think about all that often Being out here in Toronto whether you're Vancouver Montreal but it's a It's a a pretty wild place I would say so. Tell me about even just one of the typical kind of stories. You hear from renters right so I've heard quite a bit from families out in Pi and they've been having a ton of trouble for years now. it's a really tight rental market not a lot of spaces particularly larger spaces. If you need three bedrooms. Let's say and they they really just can't find very much at all So UC on facebook all the time families pleading for any sort of tips on vacant units. They find themselves weeks away from Homelessness Day call apartment buildings month after month looking for something and invariably they hear that there's just nothing available. Can he give me some context Just in terms of how tough is it there. In terms of vacancy rate and and how difficult it is to get into these places to have numbers. Yeah absolutely so. If view all the way back to two thousand thirteen the apartment vacancy rate was about seven percent. That's pretty high. It's you know the type of rate where if you need you to place your there's GonNa be some options for you fast. Forward five years to two thousand eighteen zero point three percent so like nothing pretty much nothing yes and The there was literally nothing for three bedroom. Pi's at small enough place that you can count the vacant units quickly so circa twenty eighteen gene Given all the apartments that they have that means they're eighteen available apartments on the whole island so things improved a little bit in two thousand nineteen up to one point two percent vacancy but still the lowest on a provincial basis. It's still a really tight market. There's not a lot available. I mean the thing that really really grabbed me about this is that those are numbers worse than or even maybe now on par with you know the numbers we hear out of Toronto and Vancouver where these are the biggest biggest housing crisis in Canada. And how do people react. I mean you're based in Toronto when you put together a piece explained that no actually. The worst housing crisis in Canada is out east in Cranston Rhode Island. I think it's mostly surprise. You know when when you're based out in these cities you you tend to think you know this is where everyone wants to live in Candida. Therefore there's a ton of competition but in fact I mean there's there's a lot that's going on beneath the surface in. Pi Driving this when people hear about it from year here. We just think it's a place where you go on vacation or something but you know there's a lot of people living and working there and it's it's really tough and people they don't don't realize it mostly what are those underlying things that are driving The scarcity of rental units one big thing is population growth Pi. Okay I has grown a tremendous amount over the past say four or five years on top of that. There's just not been a lot of apartments built. I mean Pe- I compared with say here in Toronto where we're sitting Real estate market is You know prices are a little more modest. Let's say so you know years ago you'd have a lot of options for detached housing under one hundred and fifty thousand dollars Yes so you know developers is there there. They weren't really building apartment. Because you know someone with a middle class. Income Housing was pretty affordable for for ownership right. So that makes sense but then you get years. I'm not really building apartments. An influx of a ton of people and home prices have gone up quite a bit you know for a detached housing. Typical detached housing went up forty percent over over the past year. So now what used to be. Affordable isn't for a lot of people they need to rent and they haven't been building rentals so start with the first problem And I guess it's a really good problem for a place like P I have. Where did the growth in population come from right so The previous liberal government. They're made population growth with a key part of their economic plan. And really. That's that's a good thing right. You know when you're looking at any of the Atlantic provinces. They're really old. They need to get younger. They I need people. In a place like newfoundland their populations decreasing They desperately need people pe- I saw this and they said we got a ramp up these numbers so they started bringing in a lot of people that are entrepreneurship programs to bring in people from outside of Canada the trying to lure native islanders back to Pi. He is well so you know the numbers sound almost kind of funny over the past four years. Pi's population has increased by thirteen. Eighteen thousand. So that's just a fraction of what you would get in a given year and say the GTE shortly but thirteen thousand. That's nine percent increase over four years. That's nearly double the national rate of growth the highest growth of of any province over that spin so thirteen thousand is a big deal on an island of you know give or take a hundred and fifty thousand sure. That's a rough equivalent of that in Toronto would be what like three hundred three hundred fifty thousand people that span yet. Just you know if you were to blow it up Toronto wise I mean it would just be. We wouldn't know what to do with all those And what about the second challenge. I mean you mentioned that Now that houses are more more expensive some people are being forced to rent. Where's the new inventory coming from? Because again you think about how the bigger cities solve these problems like journal can throw up six new condo towers hours right. The developers are all over it. How does that work on an island with limited Limited resources but also just like space. Yeah there are definitely you know. The government airman has responded. There are more affordable units that are starting to come to market. They're throwing millions of dollars at this but A lot of what we're seeing. That's coming on and lot of develop developers are starting to reactor saying we need. There's a huge potential here for rentals. We need rentals but a lot of those are going to be at market rates right so P I like a lot out of a lot of provinces has rent control which for tenants is great. Because you know more or less that your rent increases year to year are going to be pretty limited. Let's I'd say around inflation two percents or so. But when a unit is vacated or a new unit comes onto the market the landlords can set it where they want right so the new listings. That are getting come. Available available in a lot is going to be a market rate. They're going to be a pretty high rate so the average rent in. Pi is somewhat modest. It's like you know nine hundred dollars that includes people who've been under rent control. It's they've rented an apartment for twenty years right on the island. But the new stuff you see you know fifteen seventeen eighteen hundred dollars for pretty modest accommodations so when you talk to people. They're either people who were trying to render. Just people who've lived there for quite some time. Where where are they feeling the squeeze and and what do they think the government should be doing one thing that you hear a lot from people? They're they're they're they're squeezes in a few different directions. One is that I'm just tons of families families that are unable to find the space so families of five. There are crowding into two bedrooms. As I mentioned earlier for three bedroom vacancies couple years ago there was literally nothing available so finding the space for families is has been a real challenge. Another one that I've heard about quite a bit is for students for Upi about about ninety percent of their housing is off campus. The only have a few hundred beds on campus. But what. I've been hearing from students that they're competing with the short term rental market a lot so sites it's like Airbnb. The touristy is still going in September when school starts so a lot of students are having to double up with other people who happen to have apartments wade out. The tourism season. Then get a rental for October. So there's quite a bit precariousness that you're seeing at the start of the school
"newfoundland" Discussed on News Talk KOKC 1520
"St John's Newfoundland is a second year medical student at memorial university of Newfoundland in Canada but she's not your typical medical student her background is a little different I did my undergraduate degree at McGill University at the shoe excellent music and I majored in orchestral trumpet performance and a minor in music history and I loved it most people think of pre med students as inevitably science majors biology chemistry and the like or at least they load up on classes like organic chemistry but not Hannah even though she planned to go into medicine all along she admits her path is unusual and wouldn't have worked together into some medical schools there's some places where you need science prerequisites and I didn't have any because I didn't do any science courses in my undergrad the people that I've known who had gone to university here in New Zealand for medicine it was kind of common practice for music students to apply and get accepted here and so I didn't think that it was too outlandish to think that maybe I could get in but I definitely notice a difference speaking to people in your land verses in Montreal where I did my undergrad and here if I was home in New Zealand speaking about wanting to go into medicine after music people would just be so excited to be like oh yeah I know so many people who did that and seems really great at the Montreal people would look at me like I had to had to be so confused as to why I would be doing a music degree or why I thought I could ever get into medicine so I guess it was something I noticed along the way well a lot of people may think what's music got to do with medicine clearly memorial university's faculty of medicine is looking for students with more than technical knowledge and they've found that those who have an arts background rather than a science one do just fine we don't care if you've taken organic chemistry you know that probably will help you on your hand cut to have that knowledge but fundamentally that's not a requirement for us to be suitable for admissions here medical school we look for students that have a university degree rather but they do not have any specific prerequisites this doctor Barton season associate professor of anesthesia and assistant dean of admissions for the faculty of medicine at memorial university of Newfoundland music decree hold certainly as much validity as an organic camera bio chem degree and we certainly wouldn't put a preference on it those who look more at how the students have done performed and the references they've gone as well look at extracurricular activities longstanding volunteerism interactions with community and sort of ultra stick type of activities are really important for us at the school I think playing a Mozart piece impeccably is probably no different than knowing exactly how the carbon an auction items interact in civil it certainly more that the interview and Kerr situational judgement tests hopefully tease a little bit more about those that can demonstrate empathy and communication skills and in my pieces I think that those students that are used to communicating used to performing used to working hard being criticized and growing from that experience do well on many of these facets and I think the music degree does prepare them well while a fair number of medical schools have warmed up to liberal arts majors over the last couple of decades most music majors figure they have to give it up if they want to go to med school sticking with science looks like an advantage but season isn't so sure clearly medicine is rooted in a bunch of the fundamental biological sciences and I think that was initially thought to be so the best way to demonstrate your aptitude for medicine is to do well and those sorts of fields but doesn't seem to care a longer term in terms of any particular benefit I don't think that all be at any disadvantage because the first year I'm in my second year now in my first year of medical school a lot of that is kind of the things that people learn an undergrad if you did a bio chem degree or physiology osteology courses and so I never had to learn all the signs that I need to know to become a physician in medical school and if it wasn't easy to learn at the pace of the teacher medical school because I think it's mostly kind of presented as a review to most people so it's hard to learn those things for the first time but I don't think all be at a disadvantage because I think the way that I was taught it was kind of in a clinical and so the importance bio chem physiology I have somewhat of a grasp on for moving forward clinically in fact in some ways might a musical background be an advantage those coming from an arts and in this case we're talking about music background generally have good communication skills and I think patients will gravitate to those that communicate well with him I think that has been a problem in the past with physicians with a focused much more on technical skills and basic science knowledge and less so on those softer non technical skills and I think again music candidates arts.

In the 1850s, navigating Ice Alley was deadly for ships
"In February eighteen fifty six a three rematch ship called the John Rutledge set sail from Liverpool England one of the many ships that frequently traversed the icy and dangerous North Atlantic on board were two dozen crew and more than one hundred and twenty mostly Irish immigrants on their way to New York and new lives in the United added states. It was the most dangerous trip nate ever take during those years shipwrecks were so common that they were barely mentioned and in newspapers the only way to know a ship's fate was whether or not it ever arrived in port without the Transatlantic Telegraph or radios the arrivals brought with them the only reliable news of the most harrowing part of the Journey Ice Alley if a ship was going to sink the most likely place was ice alley a dangerous stretch of ocean off the coast of Newfoundland and filled with icebergs and Burgi bits when the John Rutledge departed sketchy reports of heavy ice were just reaching Liverpool some captain said they had never seen ice alley so filled with huge birds and smaller but menacing ice fragments still so the John Rutledge headed out the captain and crew gambling with everyone's lives. If the ship went down the chances which is a anyone surviving in the frigid water and coal whipping winds was slim to none on February nineteenth. The ship slipped into thick fog near the edge of the grand banks about three hundred and fifty miles southeast of Newfoundland. Suddenly an unseen sharp edged Berg gouged a hole in the ship's. Hull crews tried to plug the leak with cargo. It was pointless. The ship was is quickly sinking the John Rutledge like nearly every American built vessel in those years was designed with an open hull without separate water blocking compartments. The sea was free to flood the length of the ship. All five lifeboats were lowered but not everyone could escape many were instantly swallowed by the Chili Atlantic thirteen.

Wow. And it's like you of I type population and so they have really good restaurants, really good Asian food, which is my favorite kind of food. Well, I mean, I guess it can't say Asian food, because that's spanning huge amount of countries. I really like typhoons my favorite, but they had lots different kinds of food that we're all incredible. But also, there's this gigantic park, that's attached dislike on the edge of the city.

I think you've said that before I think you said, you actually did cut back and then found out from doing this. Pantley. I didn't that you have not the problem is the place that I get my comics from it's like very primitive website, so it's like difficult to make changes. Yeah. And you just kind of forget about it and Graham, crackers, the same same exact website. Oh, is it or very, very similar? Yeah. I don't like Graham crackers website. I'm how they set things up either. And I think it's a big enough company now to be able to. I think these comic bookstores like subscribe to that platform, like somebody created a platform. Okay. And they all kind of use that same platform to sell comics, because they all look very similar. Okay. Well, that's dumb.

But I'm such an idiot. I don't want to do it because I don't want to take the sticker off. You have to take a sticker off to get the code you. Do you gotta take that sticker off?

I insist on meeting her that's a that's easy. Peasy? So, but we we just got done with show season last week. You know, we had the Atlanta fly fishing show last week. We had the Edison New Jersey fly fishing show the week before that and for your New Hampshire caller the week before that was the Marlborough Massachusetts fishing show. So the east coast fly fishing show season is over in Dugway than it was very very successful. Lots of really the crowd seemed to grow every year when it comes to wanting to learn how to fly fish was really nice get a lot of kids in there and just growing all it was a good show season. So I'm very pleased. I'm exhausted. I always am from doing these shows and running around all the time and. But it was really very very successful. And then I've got one more in two weeks. I go up to one of your favorite places on the planet. I'm hoping I may run into our buddy from ocean, I North Carolina up, and I'm going to be up in morehead city doing a the Cape lookout fly fishing club. I'll be doing a seminar two for those guys in a couple of weeks. So hope so Don leave with stuff. Fever from ocean isle you're catching them on the lake. I'm sure we are, you know, the the fishing. When it got super cold over the last two weeks. Water attempts dropped from forty eight to forty five forty six. You know for striper fishing on linear. When those order goes blow, forty seven the fish, go deep. They get sulky. They get really they just get very, let's let's lethargic and they just go deep. But that will you know, the water bound would attempts bounce back in the last week. We've had some warmer weather, as you know, up to seventy five at the fish. I wouldn't say it bounced back totally, but we're starting to see fish starting to run the banks getting into the tax code. So we are now hoping that we've done with that super-duper cold weather, and you know, the next big pattern. That's about to come which won't start for probably another three weeks. Maybe maybe three and a half weeks is the pre spawn when the fish get ready to make their run up the river when that happens and put on the feedback because it is going to get started really going to crank up, and that's when you gotta shot here in Georgia of catching the biggest striped bass or the year, whether you're a conventional guy or fly rod guy. If there's going to be at twenty to thirty pounds fish caught it's going to happen sometime in March or early April, you bet, and you know, one of the things people don't realize is at a you're talking about the lake temperature. And that has a you know, that's the number one factor. But one of the things that makes things begin to happen earlier than a lot of people think about it is the number of hours of daylight. That's right. Period. Those hours of increased daylight affect the fish also no question about it. I mean, it's it's already stay light until six thirty now twenty seven which is great. So, you know, gets a little it also gets a little more heat on the water, obviously. And and people don't realize that one degree difference in the back of a cold to a thread, sin Shad, which is what the stripers are feeding on makes a huge difference. So it's really time start looking at the backs of the creeks and the backs of the codes. And as you as you love to fish, the back of the coal creek coming in that that's a matter of fact, you and right now we are in the exact time when you and I went fishing for our very first time it had to be I'm guessing it was closed at twenty five years ago. Yes. And that was a water about a was that a twelve fourteen pound striper? That's right. And we caught that fish that fish couldn't have been. I mean, I'll over exaggerate and say that that fish may have been three feet of water. I saw him. Yes. Yeah. We saw him crews in the Bank and matter of fact, we had one coming from each direction. And and they were sorta heading toward each other. And and the one on the left came in and rush that fly in quiet at booked up. That was I'll never forget that. And the thing and everything that you're saying about lately near in the stripers and the temperature in the photo period applies to lakes all over the south all over the east coast. It's the same thing. Fish do not know where they live except for lake Altoona. Oh, okay. All right. I'm kidding. All right. Let me go pal. Hey, when your mom gets here. I wanna meet her.

"newfoundland" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"Hebrides islands glob Stor from nineteen ninety and there's a description of this when this included an a paper that came back to several times in researching this how to tell a sea monster molecular discrimination of large marine animals of the North Atlantic published in the biological bulls bulletin in two thousand and two by car at all quote, it had what appeared to be a head at one end a curved back and seemed to be covered with eaten away flesh or even a furry skin and was twelve feet long. And it had all these shapes like fins along its back. Now, there was a NAN tuck it blob that was supposedly was like a big blur blubbery looking thing. There was what s a Newfoundland blob. Yeah. This was in Saint bernards fortune bay, and I used to live in Newfoundland. So I'm pretty sure I've been to this this area. I never saw anything like this. But but Newfoundland do see all sorts of interesting things wash on the shore described as an enormous rotting whitish mass five point six meters. Long and five meters wide. No head no tail all bleach tissue rough fringed with material that looked like hair, but was actually, quote, a braided tissue mixed with seaweed and sand seven or eight lobes or slits, and this is from that car at all paper, the state of the the decay here made it inefficacious impossible, but morphology ruled out a giant squid and suggested either the remains of the basking shark or any of several whale species found in the surrounding Newfoundland waters. Car at all rule that based on genetic sequences that they were able to you know, to to determine from the from the sample. The remains it is without doubt, the remains of sperm oil. Yeah, familiar story by this point now in two thousand three a twelve meter wide thirteen tonnes specimen of glorious blobby nece washed up on the coast of Chile at a place called Los Alamos beach. And according to a BBC news article on the specimen from July two thousand three researchers in Santiago thought that at first it might be some new species of giant octopus or squid James Meade is Walla GIS to the Smithsonian Institution. In Washington disagreed, telling the BBC, quote, I don't have enough data to say, it's an octopus or it's a whale. But I would hazard a bet that when it gets firmly identified it'll be a while. And I've got a photo of it here. It looks. What does it look like, Robert? I mean, it looks like a giant Eldrick glow of a creature. Certainly you don't look at it and think, oh that's part of a whale. No. It looks it could be Kasulu head. Yeah. It's sort of got things that look like arms or tentacles and that comes through based on the photos because in the BBC article another way expert disagrees with me saying that based on the photos, it doesn't look like whale tissue lacks the distinctive collagen matrix. And then after that the article goes full cracking, quote, European zoologists, and the author does not say who just says European zoologists said it closely resembled descriptions of a bizarre specimen found in Florida in eighteen ninety six that was named octopus juge anti-us, which has confounded experts ever since seems ought to me that the BBC is still floating, no pun intended. The gigantic octopus explanation in two thousand three. Yeah. Especially when you look at all these cases ones, we've we've looked at in some of the stuff we're about to discuss in a bit here. It seems like the whale explanation is generally the safe bet. Yeah. I mean because remember Varel the expert of the time, positively identified he said, look I've seen what these samples are like this is conclusively sperm whale tissue. That was back in eighteen ninety seven and over one hundred years later, one hundred six years later, we're still like I think maybe this was a giant octopus..

The legends were formed from the North American and African continental plates collided more than three hundred million years ago. The North American plate folded into many intricate wrinkles as it was pushed, westward, forming the ridges. We see today apparently something massive stopped the Westwood movement and the location of the bend. But what the research team used gravity measurements to find the answer. Most people assume that gravity is a same. The globe, but in gravity, measured refined it changes from place to place. That's because the density and thickness of earth. Rock layers is not the same everywhere. Certain parts of the earth are denser than others causing the gravitational pull to be slightly greater in those places using the North American gravity database, the scientists examined the gravitational, pull around the mysterious bend the denser and heart of the rock. The higher the gravity, what they found was a giant underground bog of dense volcanic rock at the location of the bed.
