How She Crafted a Career Where Passion and Profit Intersect
"Are just it is due time that you are on the gold digger podcast. So welcome to the show I had stop our early intro chatting because like we need to hit record on this this. So welcome to the PODCAST. So happy to be here. Finally, I I feel like we've been like in each other's DM's just for the last year being when when, when, and honestly there's never been a better time than this. So I am so I like divine. Niagara Oh. Okay. So I wanNa know like, tell me because I actually don't know this about you wear and when did all of this start telling me about the early days of your career before you were consulting for these massive brands and changing the world as we know it, how did this all begin for you? You know like all good stories, it began a little bit by accident I've been an entrepreneur for twenty five years I have never ever worked for anybody else. We'll wait that's not true. I worked for I worked for Clothing Company for four days. Would it? Out of college but I, I went to college at Penn state I loved feeder and performing. Arts and I thought that you know that's all I wanted to do was perform, write, and produce and direct, and then I got there and liberal arts education blew my mind and I got a degree in women's studies and a degree in classics. So now I have three degrees at gaming to make no money in. At least back then that was the thinking and so honestly, at twenty one years old I I had been so educated at Penn State, but at twenty one I'm out of college now and I take another community college class on grant writing, and this is where it started for me. I started my own company at twenty. One I learned how to write a grant to get money from businesses and my first grant that I got was five thousand. Dollars it was from an insurance company and I wanted to talk about eating disorders and body image and social issues that were affecting women at the time has always been a passion point for me and this company gave me five thousand dollars to produce my plays and take them to school and and that's how I started I literally had no idea how to pay people pay people, eleven, dollars a week because I thought it sounded better than ten. It was crazy back in back in the day like I was just ambitious in Hungary and naive and and committed and I just you know I started this company was twenty one I ran out for six for six years, and then I sold it and kind of came out here to to California trying to find my place in the media landscape and you know I was twenty seven years old landed out here. I didn't know anybody in California I. Didn't know. How I was going to parlay all of this incredible experience. I had on the road talking to students for six years, but then I wanted to move into a completely different medium and I had no training in that I just had a curiosity and that's always been a guiding force for me I love that do that five thousand dollars feel like a million dollars was probably the most essential money you've ever earned while yeah. That time if I could even just place. Our listeners Eric I'm in my mid forties, and so this is a while ago and I paid a hundred and seventy five dollars a month for rent and I you know at the time my first. So I took that five thousand dollars. That's I think why paid everybody like eleven bucks a week for people but like you know like everybody was happy to perform and get paid and and I just stretch that money as much as I could until I learned. that. I could get matching grants and I could fundraise more and so I built that business when I you know even at the time when I sold that business, I was twenty four years twenty, five years old I was making twenty five, thirty, thousand dollars year and I was living high life. I was like paid off my dad and I was living at a time even a little bit beneath my amusement gave me money to save to come out to California but. When you're new at this and I didn't know that I was really an entrepreneur I. didn't call myself that I just was trying to make the most of all this education I had gotten. Yeah. So walk me through what happens. So you get to California you WANNA, enter this media scene. You have these big visions than ideas and what I'm thinking of is nowadays, we can talk about all of these things body image and inclusivity and eating disorders and and it doesn't necessarily feel like a dirty word or something wrong or shameful back then it was very different. So walk me through what happened next yeah I felt very kind. Of alone in out there in my field of choice, you know it was a hybrid of women's issues, social issues self-help empowerment, and I was a young you know as a young woman who was trying to kind of chart my own course, and so I got out to California drove out to that quintessential road trip with friend got out to California and my Geo Prizm stayed at a hotel by the airport the extended stay America I lived there for three months and couldn't find a place to live in La like didn't have a lot of friends out here but I just have always had this dogged determination that's part of. My DNA it's part of my type A personality, and so you know I called everybody I knew I did a lot of cold calling and I did have to factors that I think helped when I got out here when I was in college I did a show for MTV news at the time where I I was able to share some of the work that I was doing on college campuses around sexual assault and sexual harassment and MTV picked up that story. So this summer I graduated I had a lot of press coverage and I had some you know offers to speak places and so I started following that path and. That helped kind of learn how to pitch myself how to talk about myself how to par lay the press that I had into the next opportunity, and so you know when I was out here, I knocked on every door I could, and eventually what I did was I went entered myself into this pitch contest at this big television production conference called Nat P. It's the National Association of television programming exacts and it was like everywhere you went like when you wanted to be Oprah Right Oprah soldier show and everybody's like selling their TV shows into syndication and I signed myself up as a solo person and I bought the wrong badge. Bought a badge that was a promoter like a sponsor bad and so I was asked to come into everybody's sweet and everybody was being so nice to me and I thought Oh my God this is. Like everybody is so welcoming when I realize at the end of the day, they thought I
Bayern, PSG Set for UCL Final Clash
"We'll start though in the champions they it's the final will wanted PSG will take on by Munich. Be Leon by three goals. So now hey, it's a disgust, the Game Alley Moreno Frank Leboeuf and Craig Burley crank. This was buying far from their swashbuckling best but they got the job done. But you've gotta you know Leon. Shown the the the main street. One of the mainstream is making it difficult for fully opposition. Something really gusty overlooking aid to improve on next year F-. where, they're going to finish league on. But that's what the stall out particularly in as competition the on the counter-attack, the super organized, the aggressive and so I think. Never expected it to be this crazy open game. That Barcelona fine with. So. In that respect, it was understandable but also Leon as you know follows it was no they created chances in the game and and after finishing had been clinical. More interesting. I thought it was professional from bio Munich brought some big boys on from the bench as well. But yeah, they deserve and Leon I'm sure front will agree on. From from a Frenchman can hold the head high for what they've done in this competition. Right. Yeah I'm not disappointed by the result because we all were expecting that to buy in, will win and go and go to the final, but we can be able to be frustrated as a French fans said. About the fact that yacht some chances I think there are more and more chances to school than they had against Manchester. City where they scored three goals but before that magnificent goal from Niagara. I think he. Took A. Big Chance. Said hit the post but well because of the fantastic Noyer Bienne Wearing. Punished where they opened up a little bit too much defensively especially behind the defense. But I agree with with Craig. Is Very. Well organized did everything to to annoy. By Munich, their resume and The physical aspect of their games. And played them in contract that was the only solution for them to be hopeful for better better school. By Munich manage to do everything well for them and and ensured that. They definitely for me the the favorite now and we've talked about maybe after the other segment, it's. Something to to. Four four. Fulbari. Essential. In. The in the perspective of that final, because by monique was very weak at some point defensively, it's really open started this game and it's fair to say, isn't it Ali before mabry scored? It could could've been to. It could've been any this should have been and so really got to see US putting together a game plan for Leon coming into this game and to match you think okay if we can force a turnover an intimate sale and then with one past week in getting behind, we can get the pine behind Doku accompanied by then maybe we get ourselves goal and we make this game a whole lot different a lot more complicated for buying Munich and that's exactly what Happened it's a turnover by the gun, but now it's a through ball in the pie gets around among annoy open goal unable to score and thinking. Okay. Maybe that was a chance. Maybe that was their opportunity. This is what could have changed the game for Leon, but it wasn't just that chance is tall can be had couple more himself where the one in which he somehow goes through the talented gets up left-footed everything to shoot at hits at the post. And its second slater than that. You see every kind of say. All right. Well, you guys miss your chance. We're not gonNA Miss Hours, and here we go. It's all about our talent and what we can do in the attack in half by immunity took over from there but I agree with frank in the sense that you look at via Munich and how vulnerable and file they look sometimes defensively that in that very transition I think Leon looked at it and Say Wait a minute. If we attack the steam, we're GONNA, create chances and in doing so they got themselves a little bit straight down when they got stretch. Then all of a sudden transition going the other way average scores one, and then things just of opened up, and then of course, the second one again on transition down the left hand side, and then from there, it was all over for Leon and by Mimic what were underway how good was that go from? Craig. Yeah I mean he's a special player now isn't it? I mean let's be quite Frank Burrup. You know three or four years ago he wasn't and his career looked zeph it wasn't really happening anywhere an unfair play. You know he's the guy that tell them to around. You know we can take people on and field you can change your core cheese, you can do ever played himself. has turned on his head and and he's just a huge threat. No. Way that it took the goal in terms of the touch how he inside. There was always two or three defenders around him, and then he just made half nothing more halfway yard. Rifle and the top corner is you started so much. These gave confidence. Experience and played such good players around him and he's he's you know as. You ask the coach he's when he was playing back in. England you know ask no online at West Brom really was a player going nowhere not. Far From Levin Dolph Ski who has the first name on the Bion team sheet this guy is not far behind. That's an amazing. At how does this happen? How does he change around so quickly? While I think Sarandon's have to do a lot with it and I am the expectations that are generated by the people around you and when you have a train environment or by Munich where everybody's expected to perform at a high level at all times and when the only expectation for you individually NFC group is you're GonNa win everything that you participate in. Then you'd better show up I think it demanded the best navarine. We have seen the very best of him. Now, this could have gone horribly wrong for him, and then whenever he was asked to give his best well, maybe that wasn't going to be good enough I by Munich and his career was gonna come to an end somewhere out without having achieved the things and now he has opened himself in terms of the chances that he has in front of the things that he can achieve. I think he got to a point in which he needed to answer the call he needed to be the player that. We all thought that he could have been on at, but we didn't see enough of it now that we see the full potential well, then it's it's it. You just have to SORTA asked the question asked to not only the individual players such whenever he had the you get to this point but to the training environment that he was part of before, that couldn't get this side of him. So yes, it is fair to go and ask the world's going on back there and I think you also have to recognize that via Munich have done a wonderful job of putting him in a position in which he can truly showcase his talent and you can. You also have to say to the player. He was a chance. Here's your opportunity take advantage of it and he has gone so such a good job of really showcasing what he is player this year of
Forever Free: Edmonia Lewis
"Hey Joel Lauren Hey so. You know what I feel like I have been I have I have not done our podcast. Justice. And the reason being is because you know every. So often we do an episode on historical person. And it seems that you do a lot of episodes about like strong influential women. And I do episodes on. Deeply White Dude's. Deeply disturbed man and I was like you know what? I'm going to remedy this today. I'm going to do it right and I had I had known very little about this person until I started doing my research, the more I learned about her the more I was. Like. Impressed about her. Just. Her talents and her very interesting life and everything. So today. I'm going to be doing an episode on Ed Monia Lewis. Yes I don't know who that is. So at Monia Lewis was the first professional and internationally known African American sculptor. Wa Yes so Her work was like well known all over the world during this time period but we'll get into it so. she was she is believed to have been born on July fourth eighteen, forty four that she didn't. She didn't know her her birthdate. Lot of people didn't warn free in Greenbush New York, which is now the city of Rent Rensselaer and her father was Afro Haitian while her mother her her name was Catherine Mike Lewis was of Mississauga, Gibb Way and African American descent. So she was both African American Haitian and native American Great. her mother was known as an excellent weaver in crafts woman while her father was a gentleman servant and her family background inspired Lewis in her later work. So, by the time she reached the age of nine. Both of her parents had died to maternal aunts adopted her and her older half brother whose name was Samuel. He was born in eighteen thirty five to lose his father and his first wife in Haiti and the family came to the United. States, when Samuel was a young child Samuel eventually became a barber at age twelve after his father died because he needed to start making money for the family and so he became a barber I know isn't as seventh grader giving you a haircut that's a nightmare but apparently. We're pulling your teeth both. Apparently. He was very good because eventually he moved out West in became an entrepreneur in a landowner and was very successful. but at the time, the children lived with their aunts near Niagara Falls for about four years and Louis in her aunt sold Agip way baskets and other items such as moccasins, embroidered blouses, tourists, visiting. Niagara. Falls, TORONTO, and Buffalo. So Little Gail. during this time Lewis went by her native American name, which was wildfire while her brother was called sunshine or sunrise, which is like these are just cool. ASS names. Great names may great names man. So in eighteen fifty, two Samuel F. for San Francisco leaving Lewis in the care of captain s mills, and Samuel provided for her board and education. Captain are mills was a an abolitionist. He was a well known abolitionists at the time. So in eighteen, fifty, six, she enrolled at New York, Central College McGraw Hill which was a baptist. School at McGraw Hill. Louis. Met many of the leading activists who would become mentors, patrons and possible subjects for her work as her artistic career developed. So during her summer term there in eighteen fifty-eight, she took classes in the primary department in preparation for college, and she was enrolled in primary courses in order to help advance her reading and writing skills along with other subjects of academia that we're not quite advanced enough for the academic department. So. In a later interview, she said that she left the school after three years having been quote declared to be wild. Oh Wow. Yeah. She said until I was twelve years old I led this wandering fishing and swimming and making moccasins I was then sent to school for three years in McGraw Hill was declared to be wild they could do nothing with me Oh Yeah. So they seem to have expected a lot from. A kid who had been grown up just like doing whatever she could to survive. So. Eight fifty nine when she was about fifteen years old her brother Samuel and abolitionists sent her to win Ohio where she attended the secondary Oberlin Academy Preparatory School for the full three year course before she entered Oberlin College, which was one of the first US higher learning institutions to admit women and people of Color. At the time, she changed her to Mary Monia Lewis and began to study art. So from here on out, she's known as Ed Monia Lewis. She boarded with Reverend John. Keep his wife from nine until she was forced from the college in eighteen sixty three. So I'll tell you about that in a second. But at Oberlin with a student population of one thousand Lewis was one of only thirty students of color. Yeah, Reverend keep was white a member of the board of trustees and avid evolutionist and a spokesperson for Co Education so throughout her life, she was kind of moved from from patron to patient as a young child mostly with abolitionist family Scott.
Musicians: Kassia of Constantinople
"Today's musician was one of the only known women to have composed music during the medieval period she was one of the first medieval composers whose work survives to present day and can be understood and performed by modern musicians. A brilliant composer poet and him Niagara for her work is still performed regularly in the Orthodox Church, which includes twenty three of her hymns in its liturgy. Please welcome casio of Constantinople. Casio was born around the year eighty, five and Constantinople to a wealthy family of some influence. We know little about her early life. What we do know is that she was considered an exceptionally beautiful and brilliant young woman? Casio was first recorded by Byzantine historians as taking part in what was known as the bride show. This was an event at which Byzantine emperors a royalty would choose a wife from amongst the most eligible women in the empire giving the winning participant Golden Apple as a token of victory. The bride show that Casio attended thrown for the young soon to be emperor theophilus who was immediately captivated by Casio when Theophilus approached Cassiopeia, he stated that through a woman came forth the baser things to which casio quickly replied and through a woman came forth the better things. The office was so taken aback by Cassius biting rebuke that he rejected her in favor of another woman the Adora after losing her chance to become empress of Byzantium Cassius founded an Abbey Eight, forty three right outside of Constantinople and served as its first abbess. Many historians have suggested the Cassius move into monastic life was a response to her rejection from the office. But some modern scholars have revisited that assumption. And now believe that it was likely a reflection of the intense religious fervor of the day combined with Cassius desire to have access to the books and centers of learning that were part and parcel of Byzantine religious. Life. Over the subsequent two decades living at the monastery Cassius spent significant writing spiritual poetry and him no music to accompany her poems. Though it's unclear where she learned musical composition, she wrote nearly two hundred and fifty hymns over her lifetime. Fifty of those, him still survive twenty three of which continue to be included even today in the liturgy of the Orthodox Church? Casio also wrote nearly eight hundred epigrams, many of which are examples of nomex verse. Cassius, most famous him WHO's the him? CASSIA is traditionally chanted on holy Wednesday in Orthodox churches around the world. It's considered one of the hardest Byzantine chance to perform because it requires an incredibly wide vocal range. Legend has it that the Emperor Theophilus years later wishing to see Casio one more time went to the monastery but was met by her empty cell supposedly, she was actually hiding in her closet when he saw the him of Cassie on her table halfway finished the office added one line of his own. The story goes that Casio chose to keep it in his honor and it remains in the him today. While Theophilus may have maintained affection for Cassiopeia that didn't stop him from persecuting her. The office was a fierce iconoclast meaning that he completely rejected the use or veneration religious icons iconography in the Byzantine. Casio on the other hand was a defender of the use of icons for her perceived insolence. Casio was whipped with a lash. Still. She refused to change her mind saying I hate silence when it is time to speak. Towards the end of her life, Casio. Left the Abbey and traveled to Italy for a brief period before eventually settling on the island of Casio's in. Greece. She died there sometime between eight, sixty, seven, and eight ninety. Following her death Casio was canonized by the Orthodox. Church. As Saint Cassini also known as Cassini the him NOG

"Hello and welcome everyone and we're so glad to have you today. Joining me is Carl docstater and just to give you a little background on this guy he's a member of the United. Nation, and he's the program called for the four year Fellowship Center about four years ago. He and a colleague of his started a podcast called one dish one Mike, and since then it's transformed into a weekly on air radio show, and recently he. He became a recipient of Canadian Journalism Foundation CBC. Fellowship for his. Outstanding Work I've been on his show before the ever since our show started. We've communicated back and forth, and finally it's my delight to introduce this man, and on top of that all he's an avid buffalo bills fan, so I would like to give a big severely to Mr Pro docstater You're very kind to Gaydos in the youngest log into low to Jota, what's the? What can I do? GEICO Ajayi? That translates to many Ms Carl. Just kidding There's there's a lot more in there. that I I like to introduce myself with Mitch official name is often as possible because our our language is under threat. I think that using any language like even if you only know Golly, even if you only know gateway when you're saying goodbye to someone or or something similar to goodbye, or or if you're seeing Jawa, thank someone. I think that every bit of language revitalization is is important, so so thank you for for having me on your show I have a gigantic fan. If you go into the archives, you can find an episode where we interview Andrew Shannon I may podcasting Betsy Andrew and I think that it's really just forty five minutes of meat gushing lick offend will. So but but you're worth it I mean it, it's it's really be concept. Your show that that you're doing at I'm I'm glad to be on for for something. Maybe a little outside of the box of avoid normally, so they are having beats danger. It's it's outside of the box, but i. feel like when we started the show. This is more of what we wanted. It's easy to talk about dead people because if you. You get something wrong well. They're not around to defend themselves. What's really hard for me? Is from a loving history and background is a lot of times. We try as hard as we can to point out. The the members of the six nations are still around today. There's still a vibrant part of our communities. They still contribute still here at not not like two or three of them left and on our show I have to. To purposely save the holding. The schone are instead of the haughtiness. SCHONE did and a lot of times we use the past tense. I I apologize to it now. You know when you're talking about past historical events that happens a lot, but we'd like to point out all the contributions that people have made in the past, and how the influenced our history and culture and society, and so it's just good to have somebody from today. Today that can can speak for today. I know you're just one person I. Know You don't speak on behalf of all indigenous people on the continent. I know you don't speak on behalf of everyone from the Oneida nation. You probably don't speak on behalf of your family either. It's good to have other perspectives because Caleb. I realized that we're limited in our scope. I wanted to have somebody come on. That could give me an. Update, but just what is Oneida culture like today? And what are the issues that your people are facing today? And then I also WANNA. Look towards the future a lot of times we get bogged down today's issues. Today's Oracle stuff, and as this podcast is recorded as different, but I realized that years from now decades from now hopefully, when people are still listening to you and me working back through the archives that you know we can, we can look forward and see what what does the future stand? What does the to row treaty mean for both our peoples in the future going forward. So that's a long winded. Introduction, BUT I want to turn over your Harlan just give you really open ended just give me a background about yourself and your upbringing. Yeah, thank you, thank you for the opportunity again. I think that what you said is probably key at. If if you're just tuning in if tuning in because of me than you've heard me, say this before if tuning into your recoil, ledges, mystery podcasts, and you're hearing me for the. The first time I think it is important that we're hitting on that concept. The Ngoni people are are still here and I, even like like I had to check myself I was helping my daughter my my nine year old at the time ten year old daughter. Do you a project for history? And it's it's difficult to sift through the history texts and to see them. Talk about how we were as people like, say we. We are as a people like we were still doing. Ceremonies were still. I'm literally trying to grow white corn, even as we speak like I'm. I'm sitting here. Thinking created rain last night because we're not something that their lives in a textbook sitting on sitting on a shelf somewhere, that's something that we want to bring a so having opportunity to come on with you today to to really remind people that can onto says about about living. Living History. History is something we're still living right now is super cool I. one of the reasons I like to get on. This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as. at least in in the community circles that I that I hang out so so for me. My production into community was movement called idle no more if you will see American listeners after how how familiar they'll be with that movement, but there was an effort in in two thousand, twelve, twenty, thirteen to to really got environmental measures to take away protection from wire to fundamentally changed the relationship between the government and indigenous people. In four women stood up and said that we're not going to be idle anymore. We will be idle, no more and we need to. We need to put a stop to this. And our people got behind those women and all of our people. It felt like like there was a total consensus in our community that had an off and I saw the seismic shift almost ten years ago. Where people like we have to do something so so for me, that was almost may may rebirth into community I was I was just living regular life, and you know trying to trying to hold down a good job trying to buy a house and worrying about the things that normal people. People worry about and then. I saw this groundswell of activity in our community, and it really opened. My Eyes Act that we need to work together to federal sell change

This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as.
Ely Parker The Commissioner of Indian Affairs
"Hello and welcome to era KOI history and legends. I'm Andrew. And I am Caleb, and welcome back to our third installment on Ellie Parker. In May of eighteen, sixty, five, ely parker returned to Washington. DC, and he and grant met with the president again. President Johnson this time Parker was still very angry about the death of Lincoln and is said to have said at a military parade. He white men are Christians, and you may forgive murder. The I'm of a race never forgives the murder of a friend which I find this quote kind of interesting because he was a Christian. He his father was a preacher, and he was a member of a of an Anglican church later in his life. So that I think it's the point is getting across that he really harbored some bitterness towards the the confederates. If you remember from our. Our last episode couple of weeks before this when Abraham Lincoln is talking to him on how he wants to help his people think Parker was really excited to have a president that actually cared about the Indians, and I think he believed honesty when he said that this must have been a you know on top of him considering Abraham Lincoln a friend, but also all of a sudden. His plans for the future for his people have just been crushed with the death of Abraham Lincoln, and we don't know what would have been head Lincoln been able to finish his second term. Lincoln definitely had some very. Questionable tactics dealing with a Western tribes during the civil war. He or some people to do some some bad stuff that being said I think that Lincoln really did have an appreciation for the the Iroquois nations, and really did want to to help them in the following months Parker remained at grant side, he helped shield him from the the masses for a word. We would use today. The Paparazzi the general was the hero of the war. He's the one that got lead to surrender. Everywhere. He went. People mobbed him. They literally had to beat people away when grant was trying to get some sleep on a train. People were breaking windows. Just try to get in and shake his hand. They said the grants hand was. Crippled because so many people wanted to shake in talk to them as they toured the North Grant, and his family came to Niagara Falls to rest and recuperate and Parker said I'll take your kids, and which is always great when somebody offers to do that, he just takes the kids and take some to the tunnel under reservation for some days to stay at his sister's house. In the fall of that year he was appointed to a commission to serve on a board to help with negotiating with a dozen or so native American nations that adjoined the confederates. We even have a chance to talk about this, but there were all these indigenous nations in the south. Many of them head slaves as well, and they were really sympathetic to the southern 'cause they were intertwined. and politically so here's a little history tidbit fact for Caleb. Do you know who the last general to surrender in the confederacy was? No idea neither did I, but I put it in the notes so I would remember. He was a Cherokee brigadier general named stand. Wadey must be the southward a little more lenient with their commissions. Yeah really, but he he commanded hundreds of troops and lead people around on a wild goose chase, refusing to surrender, even after the confederacy had surrendered, but like this is June twenty third. This is a full two or three months after a everything has wound down, it also kind of sets the stage for you know because we all know about like the the Indian wars in. In the eighteen eighties and stuff like that in the old western kind of see how a Lotta that this conflict never really ended this Cherokee general with America like eventually make some sort of peace, but you can tell it. It's GONNA be a shallow peace, and that will be trouble for the next several decades in eighteen, sixty, six one of grant's top officers colonel, bowers. was killed tragically by train, and why it's so tragic is he was a close friend of Parker in grand. You know he's one of the general. Staff and they were all on a train and grant got on the train and realized he left something back at the hotel. Something completely, not important handkerchief a book, a letter from his mom something like that. and. He just said Oh darn. I accidentally left that back there. Oh well. And bowers without saying anything to grant slipped away, and he was gonNA. Run back and grab it. Is. He was trying to be a good a good friend and a good underlying to the general in doing so he ended up. If you can picture, all these train tracks with all the trains going every which way he got trapped in between trains going different directions than he was killed crushed. So grant talks to this man a couple of minutes before, and then you know, he slips away. Grant never told him to go back and get it, and then people say a man was killed on tracks. He says Oh. That's terrible, and then it comes in that. It was his friend. It had fought with him through the whole civil war, and he was dead, just like that grant was so depressed that he told Parker that he was not going to be able to attend the funeral. Lots of people say things like that, and then the funeral date comes and guess who is there. A Grant Parker and all the staff were there for Colonel Bowers and his family
Niagara Falls to begin reopening, sports teams should play: NY governor
"Governor Cuomo says western New York including buffalo can begin their re opening tomorrow that's the sixth of ten state regions getting the go ahead the governor says he's also making thirty five thousand corona virus tests to nursing homes available every day and he spoke about the test that he took yesterday and pleased to report that I took a covert test yesterday and I am negative from that test so that is good news you take one of those tests is very easy I show people how easy it was yesterday and when you find out your negative it's actually a nice sense of relief the governor also said he's pushing for major league sports teams to resume play though without fans in the
Ancient Trees: Living on the Edge
"I hadn't research so when I started to do a research program I thought I need to find a place in southern Ontario which is far away for Hudson Bay. I had to find that place that had harsh growing conditions so that I could carry on with Mike curiosity about how plants living environments is exclude most other plants and took up and eventually I found that the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment run basically from northern New York state. All the way through a terrier over to Michigan had not only Lichens mosses and other plans but had these scruffy trees growing on edge of the cliffs. And that's why did you need to the ancient forests of scar. Of course. No one knew that they were ancient time. In fact in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. When I started the transition for like two trees I phoned. It was indication with the Ministry of Natural Resources asking if they would be interested in sponsoring research all on the ecology of the clips of escarpment and they wrote back and said well they were happy and by wanted to waste my time studying slips because he knew they were there. I have reminded them of that almost decade by decade. Since because Would they were disparaging where those little tiny trees growing the cliffs saying to themselves? Well Hey don't count compared with normal burnt tall forests. A scruffy vegetation on the cliffs didn't count so they could equal sign. Nothing is there and ironically but twenty years later when I was trying to confirm some of the early discoveries planned to do a sabbatical trip to France and I wrote to professor while palliate and asked him if I could come in at the cliffs in France and he said it was almost it was almost He said it was happy to host new but of course all their clips are there and in fact After we did the very cursory survey of the cliffs that he had we found the oldest living plants in France amid came Figaro He became famous because he then started a big research program. Events of living trees that stirred to grow for the Romans had left France shoe and it it freaked him out and everybody else said that he was a retrospectively so happy to have been rob his credit he was happy to say that to their discredit. Ministry of Natural Resources in Ontario. Even though they rode the ancient tree hobby-horse for years they never went. Service it oh by the way. We're sorry there was something there after all. Jeez wouldn't interesting trajectory on something that like you just interested. People wrote off and I grew up in that region looking at the Niagara Escarpment. And you see these trees they are small and I'm lucky that I grew up in a time where this was starting to be realized. And when you finally see the ages on some of these things that me. My jaw hit the floor. It's it's incredible to think of something that old in such a tiny package. Because you know you see three is or something like that in someone's yard and they're huge there but they're you know a couple of decades most but what got you interested in this idea of harshness. I know you said it started with Lichens. But to think about plants in harsh landscapes I mean you see them in asphalt you see them in gravel roads. Plants can handle it. But what made you want to study that you know? I think we probably need to have a shrink as part of the because what I've learned forty years during this is your personality. This is probably infected you right now to your personality guide to research ways that you don't even realizing now maybe this may be historical revisionism. But I think when I was a kid growing up I was the tall skinny guy that was always beaten up from school. Felt like I was the underdog in I always loved the idea of supporting anything in fastened with anything that would win by getting out of the way of the means of the bullets and those were often things cryptic where the things differently so I always tried to do things that other people were doing because then I wouldn't have to bump into that bullies that I didn't play sports. 'cause I was always the last one picked. I mean so does psychological component to working on high stress organisms whether they're plants or animals. Interestingly I fought against those buildings for years after ten years of working I actually got a H- site visit from the natural sciences and Engineering Research Council. They said by the way. We don't like the fact that you're working on rocks come and if you want to. This was a big incentive to move into the trees because they said if you WanNa have continued funding from us you have to work on something more real something more important like trees or higher plants but not Rocks Cup while many Lichen colonies several thousand years old and they said no one cares boy so with that encouragement lappy. We had all these people working in Allergy and we said okay guys. They're the writings on the wall. They don't want us to work on Lichens. What else grows beside them? That might gain some respect and one of the Grad students at whether trees growing on the same rocks. I mean maybe maybe we could just switch from the trees a A year later that we discovered on some of those cliff as trees that the rings were incredibly tight. We we had no plans to studying trees. We were simply looking at the way. Human Disturbance Influence the structure of these base forests. So to what could that. We decided a good thing to calculate was productivity enough to calculate the productivity tree. You have to divide its mass by age. Okay using architectural models. We calculated massive all the trees in climbed area in that massive all the trees in inclined area and then took core samples to find out how old they were Kazan. That would give us an estimate of productivity lifetime. Cry Tippety when we did that. You've got these core samples from the cliff face trees and we couldn't see any rings at all So then sanded them up more carefully. And that's when we realized reason why we couldn't see the richness is that they were too small and at that stage we with either. These trees are putting a tree ring every time it rains it because we were like an experts. Had We know the yet you know much about the biology trees at the time so what? We have a bunch of samples and said the sent them. Ed Cook It. Lamont Doherty in your you know in Palisades. Yeah Yeah just. North of the city in Ed. Cook wrote back and said Yes. Those are ancient trees where to find and I said well I can see Toronto from where they grow the sitting right on the edge of the escarpment facing the biggest city in Ontario. And it looks like some of them have over seven hundred rings in them. Whoa and he said well you got a good one expert instill as dendrochronology in the world. And so he he and I started to collaborate with some other lab partners and we did quite a bit work after that on the dendrochronology the series of the Niger. Escarpment but it was all accident really amazing. We weren't initially curious about ancient trees at all just wanted to see if disturbance influence productivity turned up the did disturbs make it. The trees grow faster because it was competition but that became a side issue once we found For us in a place where no one expected to find one.

That's a whiz kid. And I look sick. Buffalo New York in just the suburbs village called Williamsville. Just fifteen minutes outside of the city. You know. My my dad was a military guy. He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake. How listen and then throughout college and somebody's work. I Work Sides Washer. We'd orange juice plus boy creative people as host and just went through all. That was kind of my start hospitality and stuff but I love this area. I'm a diehard bills. Fan Bills Mafia. We're we're out here representing and I've lived away a couple of different places and now back. So you're part now is did you say it was the Buffalo Mafia or the bills Mafia bills? Yeah I had heard that term before. That's pretty interesting So that was going to be a question of mine if you were an a sports fan for the sports that are in the buffalo area but it sounds like it a yeah. I usually if you're from Buffalo. You're you're a big bills and the sabres kind of life around here whether we're good or bad and you say bad but we're good fans and we have a lot of fun so having been to buffalo a few times myself For those of you out there who are listening that have never been to Buffalo Niagara Falls is what would you say about twenty minutes? North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here.

Fact that's Myth
"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kent crump in my investigation into the paranormal the metaphysical. I'm lucky net. Ghosts and poltergeists inspectors. I'm lucky psychics. And mediums and clairvoyance from the side of myth and fact yesterday we looked. Pope Joan a female pope on the point of being a myth. That could become a fact today. We're going to look at a fact. That is being regarded as remiss. We traveled from Rome to the Northwest Territories in Canada. It's a South Mahoney in Canada's Northwest Territory and is a world heritage site but it is mostly inaccessible. It missed the ICE age. It is comprised of thousands of square miles. Boreal forests never touched by man. But Hanni river is intersected by four ballets numerous canyons during the great Alaskan Gold Rush than the Hani us. The river was thought to be a shortcut to the Yukon. And that's where the story really begins in Nineteen Five. A young Indian boy emerged from the valley was several gold nuggets that he gave to a local bishop who had them made into a gold chain for his watch fact. That was all it took for. Two young men will in Frank McCloy D- to venture up in the Hani Valley Panning. The various creeks and streams that flowed into the river. They found gold at least according to a diary that was found at the site of their cabin when they hadn't returned by the following year a search party including a third brother said out and found their headless bodies tied to a couple of spruce trees upside down. More fact this was the beginning of the Grizz legend that became headless or deadman's valley from nine hundred ninety six when the bodies were found to nineteen sixty over. Fifty prospectors entered headless valley in search of the MIC. Lloyd's Gold Mine and some vanished and others were found headless more fact headless valley was an area never touched by the great ice age. It is said to be heated by underground thermals than Hani itself passes between thousand foot cliff. Walls areas of the valley are believed to have been a refuge for the woolly. Mammoth a strange bear dog. Like creature called Awadhi La along the cliffs lived Naja Naja Indians that unlike the donets simply vanished so remote as an Hani Bali that fewer than a dozen men have visited this area enter Albert faily born in eighteen eighty eight Minnesota by the age of twenty three. He was running a hundred mile trap. Line along the layered river one of the tributaries leading into the Hani. This was nineteen eleven just six years. After the McCloy brothers headless bodies had been found after decades wondering along the layered. Hani working trap lines as body was no longer up to the task in the mid nineteen fifties s and in his late sixties. Albert failure decided to go after the mkx. Lloyd's Lost Gold Mine. He was a longtime resident of Fort Simpson. And once the ice had left the rivers he would set out in a twenty foot. John Book loaded with supplies for the five hundred mile trip. They would take him to the mouth of what was referred to as headless valley or headless creek the site where the headless bodies of the mkx. Lloyd's had been found all those years ago. Besides the daunting mileage. He portage round. Virginia falls twice the height of Niagara. Falls a task. That would take him a week just to move his supplies. Once above the falls he would build a second boat and continue up the Hani one year. His goal was capsized in rough weather and he almost drowned another trip. Winter set in early while living in a hastily constructed cabin he had gotten scurvy and pulled out several loose teeth with pliers year after year trip after trip. He come up short and half to turn back by nine hundred sixty two. At the age of seventy four. He was still making the trip communist close to forty miles to the McCloy mine. Once confronted by another resident of Fort Simpson. He was asked if he was going to try again. Now remember seventy four. He answered that he would be dead or drown before he would quit on a personal note. I I learned of Albert faily and a headless valley. Forty-eight probably fifty years ago now when he was still making the trip I was in high school. An eighteen minute documentary was made in nineteen sixty two about Albert failure. You can now watch on Youtube. It's an amazing story about an amazing man and this is like a lost world. This is up fact. Pack story yet. A lot of people consider it miss miss about the Naja what happened. These Indians myth about gold mine of the MIC Lloyd's so a fact based story that's regarded as missed and at some point. Someone will find the mine and it will become

Pawpaw Fruit Facts
"Let's dig into today's topic. Paul can we start with you You heard my story about how I discovered. Papa's thanks to you How did you discover? Papa's well I stood. Discovered Papa's in the native of trees of Canada. I discovered them on a page. Not In reality. Unfortunately I grew up in a family that was in the produce business My both my grandfathers this were farmers Where we're in the Agra in the native you know in the native Place for Papa's grew or still grow but I had never tasted them mhm nor heard of them and it piqued my interest so much because we had always Prided ourselves on being the first to taste everything that came into the market and new member. One Re Pini Dini came in and went Avocados came into the market and when kiwifruit and star fruit and all. Those things first appeared here And this it was the kind of our native exotic that I had never experienced. So it was part of a schoolyard naturalization pro project and really part of more broadly of using native plants to restore habitat. And so there is there is that broader Value of these trees while of course because they are native They're co evolved with all the insects and diseases that That are here. so they're not susceptible to them and and they host Many important species as well so tell me something so you read about it in a book there. Was this naturalization project in your neighborhood or something. What did you guys do? You never heard about the train you go and you buy it and you plant. or how did that happen well. This was the early nineties so for me. The early days of the of the Internet and I did track someone down through through the interweb of that day. You know very very BA barebones in those days And found some of the Niagara and into we had just you know we were. We're lucky we had just moved into a new home. We had a front yard. That was kind of a had been lawn and of course we didn't want to have lawn anymore. We don't have any lawn and it's such a such a poor use of the small space that we had in in urban setting So we wanted to plant it with native trees stories and We also wanted to scare the view to our neighbor across the street and When I came home we came home? Not with two trees but with two sticks As my partner so kindly So kindly described them and so it took about ten years. Oh my gosh. So th the next ingredient is patients it is. It's really a slow food. Okay it's very slow so it took Tennessee. You plant these trees. Your partner is okay with it. Look like two little sticks What did they look like as they were growing up? As you're nurturing these two little sticks what are they looking. I think the first thing that I notice about them was just so how distinctive the leaves czar. They look like no other tree and I have had a number of people Just walked down the sidewalk and look at them and then the bravest among them go like what tree is that. I think I know all the trees but I've never seen something with such a long feather shaped leaf And you know my my friend. Who spent a lot of time in America around Cacao Trees Religious Jew really notes. How similar they are to cow as well in their structure so they are a very unique looking tree And the and then a when the blossoms came out the blossoms are also fascinating as well. They're very dark Maroon Maroon color I believe they're mimicking meet because they are pollinated by midges That are attracted blow flies. which are attracted to dead meat? So what do they smell like. Do they smell like dead meat. So if you don't smell like dead meat they are the the. They are a little acrid smelling rolling. They're they're certainly not fragrant like an apple blossom right okay so you plant this tree and you're hanging in there and you're waiting mm-hmm and you're waiting you're waiting did you at some point. Did you almost lose your enthusiasm for this. Great idea of planting palm tree. No I think we're there. There are many other things going on and I was very hopeful and I and it was just as I was reading more and more of the work that Lorraine Johnson was doing and other other great Authors were doing around native plants and I would start accumulating references to pop. Aw and when and the more I read about dumb and the and the more I read descriptions of of their flavor the more we just couldn't lose interest because I was just kind of salivating every year and then there is frustration because for a couple of years we got some blossoms but no fruit set and so actually getting pollination especially on isolated trees in in an area where there's really no native no no other surrounding trees that could cross pollinate with them. It took a long time so finally the day comes that you start to see fruit for me. Tell me about what year was that and what was going on for you. That was two thousand and four. I I was involved in agriculture. At that point I was working in the wine industry Saw Back and forth in Agra Lot and really felt that I was kind of telling the the the agricultural story in our urban setting and this was another part of that story And so as they foreign we got very excited. I why did you know the the small. The small mammals do like to climb up and down the trees and sometimes knocked them off before they're fully ripe so that was a little bit of a frustration. Especially when you're you know and we would count the fruits right at the end of his own fifteen this year you know. And then and then there's attrition through the whole season right and but when those first fruits did ripen and you could smell their ripe and you could feel they were right They became very highly price in our in our in jealously guarded. Oh Yeah Y.. Y within our household as well yes okay so in your household old guy. Your first ripe fruit. Is this actually the first time you taste papa. Your own fruit yes. I had never had that point. There were no I. I hadn't yet to see them at farmers markets Forbes wild foods does have some now and now there are some other farmers who are growing them in in a more more commercial quantities. But at that point not at all so what did you think I was just blown away. The the flavor is so mystifyingly defying Li exotic so tropical in its character The texture is so silky and smooth and as they get ripe they get this. Really really beautiful. Creme Brulee characters a bit of a roasted character to them that is just really satisfying and really enhance and attractive. And and then of course you want to multiply your pleasures by sharing them. So that's really what I started to do. Work through slow food and other organizations to you want to really share share the beauty of the of that

The Man From Beyond Nearly Killed Harry Houdini
"Harry Houdini. Now the story starts at Niagara Falls. So that's where we'll begin. Most people relate Niagara Falls with the image of someone going over in a barrel. I will take a look at the fall and a flow of water of over three thousand one hundred sixty tons as per second. The word formidable fits the first person to go over. The false was anti Edison Taylor sixty three year old schoolteacher who took took the plunge in an oak pickle barrel five feet long three feet around the year was nineteen o one. The entire event from climbing into the barrel to climbing now took twenty minutes. She died April Twenty Ninth Nineteen Twenty one now. Remember that date magician. Harry Houdini Love I. Love Niagara Falls. Visited them numerous times with his wife. Beth he told her that he was drawn to the false by their sheer power. Houdini Cop Film Own Bug in eighteen ninety nine and nineteen one the same year. That Annie Edson Taylor made her plunge over the falls he made. They dispersed movie. His second film was a Hollywood feature film the grim game and came out in nineteen nineteen. It was successful enough that he went on to make the third film. The man from beyond most exciting action took place at Niagara Falls was filmed the same day as the passing of an Edison. Taylor who was the first to go over the falls in a barrel Harry. Houdini was athlete from a young age in as a teen when numerous metal simple diving and swimming events held in and around New York he could oldest breath for five minutes and had the ability to slow his heart rate although oh he was a magician in that he was accomplished in both cards and coin. Magic he found his calling as an escape artist and the marketing of that talent taking on all challengers in the process the effected combined his skills of Escape and working while underwater was best demonstrated when he was shackled. Cool hand and foot locked in a packing crate and lowered into a river when it came time to film the ban for beyond Houdini is the hero was due to rescue the heroin from going over Niagara Falls. The actress was strapped into a harness with cables could be reeled out or pulled in she. He was filmed clinging to a rock just above the edge of the falls airy was to swim to take her off the raw swimmer to safety but Houdini would have none of the leather harness in cables he started upstream so he could swim with the current but when he neared the boulder heroin clung to the speed of the water was was a champion ten miles per hour as he neared the boulder was cleared to his wife film crew that he was out of control and was be swept along faster Astra than he could swim. The story goes that the actress saw that Houdini was in trouble and extended her arm which he gratefully took and essentially clung to her as she was pulled in needle say that part of the film was cut out and it was also the last film with short lived movie career now. For the controversy there are several counts of how he wore a leather harness. Also these claims are false. The report of his rescue that I use here was taken from a portion of notes. Were not to be released until after his wife's death a similar account came from his biographer. Prefer Walter B Gibson. Gibson was a close friend of both Harry and his wife. BESS for ten years after Houdini. Death best kept a candle burning. And during a CEOS each halloween she would attempt to make contact she finally gave the event and the candle to Walter. B Gibson who who continued with the annual sales until giving charts or the same seance to magician dorothy dietrich the man from beyond that nearly killed Harry.

"Hello and welcome to the podcast i'm tracy v wilson i'm holly fry i went on a trip just the other week that involved flying into buffalo new york and since we were so close by niagara falls we went to niagara falls had never been there before and it reminded me that way back last summer i had been planning to do a podcast on people going over niagara falls in a barrel and then i stumbled across an article about a net kellerman while i was doing the research for that i got completely distracted i forgot totally about it having been reminded by going to the actual waterfall we are going to get back to that today with any edson taylor who was the first person to go over niagara falls in a barrel and we're going to start off with a little bit of a brief history of industrialization and commercialization at niagara because this whole barrel trip was part of a much bigger story of tourism and daredevils at this natural wonder so niagara falls is a collection of three waterfalls on the border between the united states and canada ontario on the canadian side and new york on the us side and they're on the niagara river between lake erie and lake ontario the falls are the horseshoe falls the american falls and the bridal veil falls sometimes horseshoe falls is known as canadian falls most of the horseshoe falls around the canadian side of the border while american falls and bridal veil falls are both in the united states horseshoe falls is the biggest of the three it's the one that's shaped like a horseshoe like its name suggests and it's what comes to mind for a lot of people when you say niagara falls it's impressive in persons it's it does have sort of the iconic aspect to it the area around niagara falls has been home to a number of iroquois and speaking indigenous peoples leading up to the seventeenth century a confederation known as the neutral lived on what would become the canadian side of the river and this name comes from the french describing them as neutral in conflicts between other iroquois nations and confederation so this is a guess at pronunciation because we couldn't find a clear one but the when roaring on or when roe lived on the other side and the neutral confederation and the wind row were allies until sixteen thirty nine after that a combination of wars epidemics and other factors led to both of them being dispersed by and absorbed into other iroquois tribes and nations there are descendants of these people surely living still today but there's a whole complicated history of all the various iroquois and people's they were not not a monolith so some people wound up going completely different parts of the country others sort of made their way into other tribes and nations.

"Even if you're not an engineer surely you realize that that kite string is nowhere near as thick as bridge cable but there was a plan in the biting cold of january hundreds of boys gathered at the edge and set their kites to the sky now it is obviously unfair that bridge designers did not invite any girls to be a part of this unusual event but we would like to believe that a few girls who knew they were just as capable as any of those boys defied the rules and sailed their kites anyway sadly we don't have any evidence as to this matter in the end a young boy named allman walsh succeeded in getting his kite across with his string safely secured each side of niagara falls home and collected his five dollars which was a lot of money in eighteen forty eight then the bridge builders set to work and mrs the coal part another string ever so slightly thicker was tied to the end of the kite string and together they were pulled across the gorge when all of the original kite string had made it across and the string that hung over niagara falls was completely the second thicker string a 'nother thicker string was tied to the end of that secondstring as the rope was pulled over the gorge the newer thicker piece was held securely by the slightly smaller string preceding it now if they put too thick of a rope on the weight of eight hundred feet of that rope would break the thin one that was doing the polling so all day long they attached thicker and thicker rope pulling each new thickness slowly across niagara until finally a multi strand iron cable was in place and stabilized on the american and canadian sides.
