Hellmuth Sweeps Negreanu to Win High Stakes Duel II

"Jeff let's breakdown some poker news and let's start right with the biggest story that happened last night. We actually postpone this episode one day so we could talk about this. And that is the high stakes dual round three while right. It's round two. but match. Three between daniel new infill. How news hellmuth had won. The first two he was looking to sweep agron you negroni was looking to have some redemption and save some face by finally defeating defeating how this was four. Four hundred thousand dollars in two hundred thousand dollars apiece and what happened man. I i mean it's just incredible. It's just this The phil hummy train continues to roland. Nobody can can stand in front of it. He sweeps antonio's fan. Dra wins through straight against him for fifty k. Person for one hundred k. Person for two hundred k person antonio loses his right to challenge fill chooses to stay stool. Boom we move on to high stakes tool to daniel Steps in the with all this heads up experience now after playing doug hold time and time and time again and cash none go but still negroni. The heavy favourite hell me wins round. One person how swings round to one hundred per cent and this week. Helmuth wins round three for two hundred k. A person it was almost the same script. Chad like we saw for the first couple rounds of high stakes tool to mcgraw nude jumping out to an early lead in super deep stack. Play mirani clearly at the edge. I think phil would tell you that as well so ground who had the lead helmi fought back. I think that you can say again. That helped me to get hit in the head by by the deck for sure there were plenty of times flop trips turned trips etcetera etcetera. Now with that said two things number one they got it in kings versus kings negroni one number to fill in one of the biggest parts of the night fairly early on when absolutely ham with eight. Three of clubs against niagara new and his deuces in agronomy saw something in phillips like he had a reader attell. That was weak. But phil followed through on this crazy blah. Ns got through so there's no doubt about it as an agronomy said at the end of the match. That phil hellmuth deserve to win. That he deserved to win high stakes stool to and that four hundred thousand dollars three hundred fifty camp profit. Well-done films what were your thoughts five betting five bedding with a after a suited like. Let's give this man some credit. I've been saying it for a long time. I'm a film fan even did antonio's family oury three in sweep. He got a ground. You want to three main. When when's poker will start giving him some of the credit that he deserves. And i like. We talked about in past episode. It was a win win situation as far as story lines. Go by a. I think this is a feather in the cap for helmut for sure and in kudos to you for pain him to complement and You know saying he deserved to win. It makes me wonder where this leaves. Negra new I listened to him on the debt. Khokar podcast every week. I love it. It's a great show how they recommended and in that you know even admitted that he's he was a little rattled by being beat the first two times and now he's been beat three times in who says he's playing the best poker of his career right now all the studying that. He's done the solver work and he's put a lot of Of working to his game but he's not seen the results agency a year in the helmet high stakes dwells. You didn't see it during the. Us opened in against doug elk so man. It's one of those things like you can be playing the poker of your life but this is a game where results matter say. Don't be results oriented but it does matter you could be the best. Ufc fighter as far as training goes in in pound for pound strength. But of you're not winning matches you are not a winner in in the ufc so in poker you have to be winning as well to be to be a winner in into gronya. Hasn't been doing a lot of this far now. I did say this tweeted it in. Negroni tweeted back. Saint he agrees. I think between the wpa summer online bracelets which are slated to start in one week.

I think you is going to win a bracelet. at least one race at and he's gonna find number seven. I think it's long overdue. I do think he's playing extremely well.

"niagara" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class

"Ninth two thousand eighteen and joy. Welcome to stuff. You missed in history. Class a production of iheartradio. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy v wilson and 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. I 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 annette 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 annie 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 dare-devils 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 in. They're on the niagara river between lake erie. 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 on the canadian side of the border. Paul 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. Yeah 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 iraq orient 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 it pronunciation because we couldn't find a clear one but the When roaring on or winrow 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 peoples that are not a monolith so some people wound up going completely different parts of the country other sort of made their way into other tribes and nations. The european known to see the falls was probably father louis hennepin. Who was a french priest. And sixteen seventy eight and he wrote about it after he got back to france although in his account he said that the files were six hundred feet tall. They're really about one hundred and seventy feet or fifty. Two meters saw the first european settlements in the area were started after the revolutionary war. It's hard to eyeball distance and scale. I understand and they are quite impressive. They are. I could see where you would. You would think they were way bigger than they actually are. The nearby city of buffalo new york started to grow dramatically after the completion of the erie canal which connected the great lakes to albany new york and then from albany people could reach new york city via the hudson river in his railroad started to expand in the nineteenth century. Buffalo became a major railway hub. Its proximity to niagara falls. Helped make the falls a major tourist destination in eighteen. O one theodore burr and joseph alston visited the falls as part of their honeymoon. They were kind of it couple at the time and that's this helps set the trend of niagara as a honeymoon destination. Although sometimes people give that credit to napoleon bonaparte brother jerome who also named there in eighteen o four. It was another hundred years or so before niagara falls really started billing itself as the honeymoon capital of the world by the eighteen thirties. The tourist industry was booming in agra falls hotels a knick knack shops and tourist attractions were popping up everywhere and developers. Were buying the prettiest vantage points along the river so that they could charge people to take a look and people were already complaining that the area around the falls was too commercial and too tacky complaints about commercialization at magara not knowing not new remotely and it was much to the chagrin of european visitors and the words of alexis de tocqueville in a letter to a friend in eighteen. Thirty one quote if you wish to see this place in its grandeur hasten if you delay your niagara will have been spoiled for you all ready. The forest rounded is being cleared. The romans are putting steeples on the pantheon. I don't give the americans. Ten years to establish a salt or flour mill at the base of the cataract. This letter was prescient also became a major part of the niagara seen with mills and their water wheels. Dotting the river. Nikola tesla famously worked on a hydropower plant that started operation on november sixteenth eighteen. Ninety six the eventually there were so many mills that they physically affected the flow of the water over the falls some of the tourist attractions that still exist today. Date back to the nineteenth century the maid of the mist started operating in eighteen. Forty six. that's one of the boats that will take you up to the bottom of the falls in a little colorful poncho. At first the made of this was a passenger vessel that was carrying people across the river so it was serving a much more practical role when a suspension bridge opened across the river in eighteen. Forty eight. The maid of the mist became a sightseeing vessel by the eighteen sixties. There was so much commercial activity and other development at angra that people started calling for some kind of preservation effort. A group of politicians and prominent public figures started the free niagara movement to encourage the state of new york to buy back some of the private land and restore it as a public park. It was both about preserving the natural beauty of the park and making it so that people could view the falls for free rather than having to pay a mill owner for a peek at of you that also included all of their industrial equipment eventually led to the niagara reservation act in eighteen. Eighty three and the creation of niagara falls state park established as niagara reservation in eighteen eighty five. The park itself was designed by frederick law own stead. The niagara parks commission was established in ontario in eighteen. Eighty five as well on the canadian side. The area adjacent to the falls is queen victoria park today. Throughout all this time of commercialization industrialization and preservation niagara performers. Were also working at the falls trying to make a living by entertaining tourists and in the days before tv and film. Dare-devils were a huge draw. Sam patch also known. As the yankee leaper jumped off a platform on goat island which is between horseshoe in american falls on october seventh eighteen. Twenty nine years from a height of feet. It's about twenty six meters and he survived. He made another jump from a height of one hundred and thirty feet. That's forty meters on october seventeenth. He survived that one too. Although he died during a jump near rochester less.

Free Agency 2021: Biggest Winners and Losers From Day One

"Who's the biggest winner from day. One the biggest winner from day one already told you it was. It was a my intro. You're listening great question. Jonnu smith out. It's cam newton. Well that depends kenyans a starter for sixteen games. That's right that's true. It's yeah okay. Potentially find jonah smith. Donald smith big contract with the patriots They invest heavily in him. You like this for him i do. I think you know Obviously the quarterback is the concern. But this is the scenario especially with the move that they made that we look for in fantasy as tight end could be the leader of the pack in terms of targets and opportunities and so look cam was not good in twenty twenty. If cam does start sixteen games in two thousand twenty. One greg olsen. During a five year stretch was pretty awesome of the top tier tight ends of the guys that we did. We talk about what he was in the next group you know. And so from twenty two thousand twenty sixteen. Greg olsen averaged a hundred eighteen targets a season seventy seven catches Decide one thousand yards and five times. Johnny could do that. One season estimate put them right around a top five tight end. Greg olsen was great and not only was he great but we also saw from cam newton in that stretch that he could give you greg olsen. Who could finish as a top eight tight in five straight seasons and give you a number to wide receiver in four of those five seasons three or four of those five seasons whether it was. Steve smith or kelvin. Benjamin and even ted ginn one year. So that's interesting. I'll afforded talking about that on the show tomorrow on the tuesday morning show and then of course we'll have a whole bunch of more news items to react to. Hopefully we'll get some kenny golladay news at some point on tuesday or maybe it'll happen later on monday night as record this at about nine fifteen eastern. Who's the biggest loser from day. One the biggest loser from day one on asking these questions before. I told you that we were starting with these egypt's before the show The biggest guys they ryan tannehill johnny smith and Us down smith and corey davis They're going to have to struggle to replace those guys Davis probably more. So the jonah just from the standpoint of what he was last year with his production number two receiver sixty five catches nine hundred plus yards and five touchdowns. So we'll see what they do in in in that in that regard but i think Tannehill you know. I had him as the number eleven quarterback. I dropped in the thirteen after today. Just because i think it was close between in my mind. Joe burrow and tom brady put them behind both those guys. Okay how 'bout jameis winston ryan tannehill right now. It's soom jameis winston as the starter. I still go. i think it'd be messy. You know. I can't situation we're taking those not blaming So i was hoping james would go someplace else and tastes hill. Would still be the guy with maybe a rookie or somebody. Young that they could groom continued. Just gonna to get you know too much of the mill package of james as the starter and if as milton starter. Davis is gonna play very much so it just feels like it be messy situation oil. Who do you like better. Corey davis with the jets nelson agholor with the patriots. I think adler is going to be bad. I don't trust the situation. You know i mean he. He had so many big. Plays for the raiders last year and he was so good for derek carr but he did that on eighty two targets. I don't think he gets eighty two targets with the patriots. He's going to do the same thing. So with what cam does running the ball with what jonah smith brings to the table with. What the rest of the receiving corps will look like if julian edelman on the team if he's healthy Nagla is going to be A guy that's not on many fantasy rosters middle of the season whereas corey davis could be the best receiver for the jets. I don't know if that's going to be the case. But i would take davis by far over niagara.

"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today i have an absolute thrill we are talking with doug hill. Doug is a corporate photographer. A fine art photographer. His work has been all over the place. It's in magazines books. Catalogues it's at the j. Paul getty museum the library of congress the museum of photographic arts in huntington library. You know of course for his work at frames a very active member of the community. Doug welcome how's everything out in los angeles today. Thank you very much scott. It's a pleasure to be here today. It's probably seventy five degrees and sunny but we're on stay at home orders though. I'm stuck in the office at the moment. Oh th that's a shame because seventy five degrees and sunny out in los angeles. That's a photographer's dream. That's what everybody hopes for. You could get that beautiful light out there does. There is so much that. I wanna talk to you about your photography there. There's so much about this. That i find really impressive and enlightening but i got to begin at the beginning i i really wanna know. How in the world did you get from being you know the seven year old with instamatic up to a world class corporate and fine art photographer. I got started. I got my first series camera niagara matt and the reason that i got it was that i was going out with someone who was very interested in pursuing an acting career. And the well. Here's a perfect opportunity. I'll have a model someone that i can work with them. And start to figure out how the camera work then actually worked out pretty well straight off the bat and i had access to actors and actresses drew agents and producers and folks like that so i began doing head shots and i did that for several years but after awhile i began to burn out on. I certainly loved working with people but there was something about the process of shooting. That was kind of growing stale. So i started looking around for other things that i could do with a camera. I had been interested as a kid in architecture. Thought i might even become an architect at one point except that there was way too much math involved and I i got a four by five. Large format camera and began shooting buildings that interested me but didn't know what to do next with it so i started calling all of the architectural photographers. The serious ones in the area Maybe a dozen people. It was before the the field had really burgeoned. I call them all Asking if they need assistance most of them alike. We said no including julius schulman said nad on the internet system Recommended a guy named leeland lee who had been his assistant for a number of years especially through the period when julius was at the height of his powers and he said you talked to leland and i have confidence that that that may work out. I called leyland. Leland was gracious enough to say sure. Come on by. I showed him some of my work. He said well. This isn't very good Which was but i thought. Okay i'll i'll plough on. But he said you know what. I can use an assistant and you're welcome to to start doing that. If it interests you so it did very much. And i learned an incredible amount from him working with him in the first year that i got to know him and i started to pick up clients and found that i really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed working at a much. Slower pace It was hard work physical work. There's a lot more lighting. The cameras were larger and heavier. It required an attention to detail that i discovered i. I really enjoyed so. I stuck with architecture photography for many years at the same time. It's doing some fine art. I had gone to ucla and studied there. And and also cal arts. So i i was sort of on these two tracks one being the commercial architectural work and the other being fine art.

Above the shivering crowd eventually dispersed fearing that they had witnessed the drowning of the great magician under the ice. He moved from trapped air bubble bubble eventually finding his way out. There are dozens of versions of his story but whatever the case demonstrates his power of concentration. Above all harry. Houdini was a showman dangling from cranes. Skyscrapers upside down in a straitjacket. He would attrac- upwards of fifty thousand. Onlookers necks craned as they watched the dramatic escape. This would guarantee a pack theater that evening but he was always searching for a new effect. He's responsible for bringing the obscure thread the needle from india to the american stage. This is where he would placed dozens of needles in his mouth along with thread. Poss- drink a glass of water then amazingly extract needles threaded with enough threat to cross the stage later. He performed the same illusion with razor blades. Houdini was much more than a magician however he was a man with an insatiable curiosity and was fascinated with movies made several including one where he was to rescue the ever suffering female from iraq on the brink of niagara falls. She was harnessed to a safety line. Houdini would have none of the safety features offered and was nearly swept over the falls. He got out of the movie business because it didn't make money.

Check Ride Turbulence - Preparing for the Check Ride

"Up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good. This is a show that i think might blow off our top ten charts. Hopefully this is gonna be a new series that we're going to start doing every month called. Check ride turbulence. And that's a little bit of play on the words. Check ride and turbulence but these are going to be stories from flight school owner and a dp to make the check. Ride a little less bumpier to. We're gonna help people smooth those flights out and those check rides out And this week we're going to start with preparing for the check ride. And if you have check ride stories and that is you want us to do as part of this. Check rat turbulence every month show. Let us know this month is all about preparation for the check wally. I'm sure you've seen just about everything in your first four hundred and fifty check rides but on a scale of one to ten ten being the most prepared student that you've ever had that would have been me probably on the instruments. What would you say. The average level of preparation is for a check ride. I would say Somewhere around a seven so not bad right. Just a seventy percent is normally a failing grade right ryan so seven still not really really good right or professional pilots or people who wanna do something partake in something that could be dangerous. We want to shoot for better than seven. Yeah yeah good. I you know it's it it all goes to Preparation and at least with me I have an online scheduling system. If you if you book a check ride with me you're going to get a an email confirmation along with that email. Confirmation is going to be a letter It's the letter is is just over a page long and there's a lot of information on the ladder and if you use that letter. Basically as a checklist. You're gonna be in pretty good shape. I know several of the Other examiners here in houston use the same type of system. Where you you book it online and you'll get a confirmation What what i see is is the the m- farther out in advance that we can schedule a check ride and far farther out Before the check ride the student or the applicant is actually signed off in niagara. The better i would guess that. Probably fifty percent of applicants Before we even meet. I find some sort of missing something or other on the application the iraq application itself and it usually has to do with the flight times There's a little column off her class. Totals and it's Class totals and A lot of people miss that so Maybe it's a private pilot candidate. And they've got seven point nine hours of solo time and Or actually that'd be cross country. Let's say they got twelve hours of solo time. They should have in that class. Totals they should up twelve hours of of of single engine land. Pic time and a lot of times. They they missed. That and those are really easy things to fix. Because as i'm i'm sitting at home relaxing in the evening. I'm i'm looking a week ahead of time and i'm pulling up applications. I'm taking a look at things. And i'm i'm looking at the numbers on these applications and i see that it's real simple for me to go into my scheduling system and send you a text. Say i was looking at your application. I noticed she left out a column. I'm going to send it back to you right now and It's no big deal. It's no big deal. You know. I deal with akra daily I've i've dealt with it on on hundreds of applications and As a student pilot this may be your your second time to really deal with the i. Accra the first time being when you got your student pilot certificate. Now you're working towards your private and even the cfo is Extremely familiar with i acura. So i kind of know what things to look for. I'm looking for to meet the minimum requirements. Making sure there's three hours of inch talking about private. We're talking about parts sixty one Making sure there's three hours of instrument three hours a night time You know a lot of times you will see Then putting in the application that they have pic night landings which most of the time at this point The student pilot would not have that and Unless we're talking about Simulator time solo time plus dual time should equal total time so A lot of times. I'll see You know Tenth errors You know Twelve hours a solo time Fifty hours a dual time and total time of seventy two hours. Where would be sixty two hours so you know kind of make a A mental audit or a quick audit of the times to make sure they make sense. And again i would say probably forty five percent of the applications i yet before i ever even meet the applicant. i find some errors and we're able to fix that so that's probably the first thing and you know obviously if the application is done the day before sometimes it's not as easy to see those errors and then the morning of the check ride or the afternoon of the check. We're trying to fix these things. And i see the anxiety level on the applicant raising as they're dealing with this. They're they're thinking. Oh my gosh. I've made the examiner mad. Which isn't the case at all. I mean i just wanna get it right.

Great Moments in Communication!

"Sure is easy today. A quick pair of thumbs can easily send a text to a friend email someone around the globe or place a call to order a pizza. Each time you do any of these things information is being transmitted from one place to another faster than you can say Trans Atlantic cable. Trends stop already there you can stop. But if you have learned anything from this show, you should know that it wasn't always this easy. A device called the Telegraph. Was the first big development in getting information from one point to another. It changed things dramatically because it was the first time information didn't have to be physically carried a letter on horseback a note on a boat, even a message in a bottle. These were a few of the only ways to tell someone in another place something anything. Imagine how different life was and imagine how revolutionary it must have been when an electric pulse could finally travel through a wire and deliver a message to that person much more quickly. British scientists, William Cook, and Charles. Manson created the First Commercial Telegraph. That wasn't all they dabbled in. We'd stint also invented a new kind of Concertina squeezy Reed instrument sort of like an accordion, as well as the stereo scope Victorian Parlor device that looked like a funny pair of binoculars and created three dimensional images out of. Pictures printed onto changeable cards. If you've ever used a view master toy, it was kind of like that. Anyway, their version of the Telegraph used multiple wires to carry electric pulses, which would move needles on the receiving end. These needles would point to the letters on a dial. This would slowly spell out the words of a message letter by letter in one sense, their version was nice because it required. No special. Code or a special understanding from the operator you just had to know how to read but installing the multiple wires was expensive, inconsistent and difficult. So soon, Samuel Morse's single wire telegraph became the international favorite because the message was on a single wire. It could only send one letter at a time and it didn't actually use letters but something to represent letters a required people to use a code known as Morse Code. Operators had to learn a new alphabet of short dots or debts and long dashes or does of the code to get each letter which they would translate. It wasn't immediate telegraphs took time to send and receive as the letter by letter codes had to travel along the wire, but it was still faster than trains, horses or running really really fast almost as soon as Morse's telegraph debuted in the eighteen forties someone was. Like Hey, we should put one of these in the ocean and send messages to Europe at the time to send a letter from New York to London usually took twelve days of sea travel that's not even factoring in the time on land, the letter would need to be carried. So communication took a long time Samuel Morse believed in his creation wanted it to make a difference. So he said great idea. Let me help. Turns out running a wire across the Atlantic. Ocean was a lot harder than you might think. Or. Maybe your a reasonable person and you realized immediately that this was a super difficult thing to do. It was especially. So in the eighteen hundreds either way there was a guy who with Sammy Morris help was going to see that it happened no matter what got in the way. Name was Cyrus field and he got rich in the paper business. It wasn't under Mifflin that he founded but another real and frightening paper company that sold newsprint to the Penny Press tabloid newspapers of New England. The company did so well that he retired at the age of thirty four as one of New York's richest men. With plenty of life. was he dedicated the remainder to the transatlantic cable a wire to stretch across the ocean settled on the bottom deep below the water? This marvel to be would carry electric signals and deliver international messages in Samuel Morse's special code both America and England loved the idea and pledged support and some money he sold stock in his New Telegraph Company to help raise funds but mostly he put up his own sweet sweet paper making money to get the project off the ground or I guess underwater. We'll spare you the super technical details mostly because we are kids, podcasters and not electrical engineers but telegraphic cable had to be over twenty six hundred miles long to stretch from Europe to North America, and every one of the twenty six hundred miles of cable had to be insulated and protected from the rocky bottom corrosion from the salty seawater and any marine life that may cause trouble. So it was coated in latex then tarred hemp and lastly wrapped in heavy iron braids is took months for giant teams to make. In eighteen fifty seven nearly two decades after Morse's Telegraph debut two ships sailed out from the coast of Ireland and started to unspoiled the gigantic telegraph cable to the bottom of the ocean the mood aboard the British ship HMS Agamemnon and the American ship USS Niagara was probably bubbling from excitement. Those aboard watched the first of the cable disappear into the mysterious ocean, they must have known they stood on the threshold of a new frontier ready to connect two continents as never before with the power of one seemingly magical. The VIBRATO. The line you mean the cable we have to stretch across the ocean for the next few months it's only the first day. Broken just flopping around at the bottom of the ocean. Okay. So after just a few miles had been unschooled, the would-be transatlantic cable snapped undeterred. The brave crews used grappling hooks to find the lost

"At the beautiful, Niagara Falls is also pursuing some kind of entrepreneurship strategy. Very busy place in the summer when the colleges in open. So this call this university, Niagara university this summer put storms on. For hundred twenty nine dollars a night and made a little bit of money out of it. And in charge of this put a bunch of charities. So the hospitality students academic credit. They get a little real world experience in the school make some money. This is a win win. But hold your horses because Cardiff how much do you love your modern? How deeply do you feel? I have some love for my Elmont. I remember fondly I'll wear the school colors now again. Sure. All right. We'll we'll see because real love your a mater, what proponents of strategy number two tapping into brand equity are counting on there are forty eight colleges and universities that have licensed their logos. This is my favorite for casket. So if you are really really loyal you can be buried in a casket with its logo on it. Sign me up. Okay. Let me just tell you something though. All right. I went to Georgetown. I'm proud of that. Yeah. All wear the school colors now and again, okay? My love for Georgetown stops at my wallet. And I'm sure as hell not going to spend money on something that I'm not going to get to actually get anything out of until after I'm dead. Forget it. All right. But in fact, there is another strategy maximizing profits, and here's where the schools are kind of taking a page out of the airline's books. They're trying to fill the empty seats in their classes, not for credit or anything. These are people who are like retired and just want to take a course or wanna learn a language before they go on their trip to. All that kind of thing. But that strategy number three maximizing profits, and it's similar to strategy number four growing their offerings as they have seen their enrollment decline. A lot of colleges and universities have decided that the best way to enroll more students is to offer more stuff. This is an area of massive growth. Schools have been offering new degrees and new programs and one in particular is super popular get ready for it. It is called the certificate. You can get a certificate in public relations or graphic design. But there's a ton of confusion around certificates first of all they are not traditional college diplomas. Yeah. They're also not certifications, which is what doctors get when they are board certified or what you need to become a CPA certified public accountant. But it sounds like a certification. It sounds exactly like a certification and one of the things that a lot of research has found is that employers. Don't know what it's difficult is to. And so if an employer doesn't notice if it is how valuable is it going to be for an employee or perspective employer? An applicant certifications are typically overseen by professional organizations and candidates have to pass exams, and then meet state requirements certificates are different and they're also controversial. And they are not straightforward at all. So some certificates might help you get a job. But it's unclear if they're always worth it. So for example, you can pay up to twenty four hundred dollars I certificate to be a home healthy, but the average wage for a home health aid is eleven dollars an hour. Is it worth it? Again, not straightforward but schools are still awarding a million certificates year from two thousand twelve until now colleges and universities collectively have added. And this is an extraordinary number forty one thousand four hundred forty six new degree or certificate programs. That represents a twenty percent increase since two thousand twelve but here's the thing about this strategy of fring, lots of new degree. There are two ways of looking at it. If you offer a hot new degree like cyber security where there is a lot of demand you could attract new students. But then there are other degrees. The one that really caught our attention was casino management. There have been fifteen new casino management majors instituted at colleges and universities around the country those fifteen programs in casino management, collectively graduated last year, thirty four students..

"Here's how any edson taylor described those first moments adrift in the niagara river quote my heart swelled and for some moments i felt as though i were being suffocated but i determined to be brave by a supreme effort of will i calmed myself at once and began earnestly to pray if it was god's will to spare my life if not give me an easy death this reminds me a little bit of henry box brown's account of being in the box while being shipped around i'm gonna say he has a much better reason to be put in a box and sent somewhere i wholly concur but just that moment of like i'm trapped i'm just gonna pray like either going to gut it out or it's going to end the rapids on the upper niagara turned out to not be all that bad the water in the barrel kept getting deeper and there was the constant tension in anticipation of when she would get to the foles and whether she would survive going over but in terms of how rough the right itself was she was pleasantly surprised than at about four twenty three the barrel finally shot over the falls in her words quote i thought for a moment my senses were lost the feeling was one of absolute horror but i still knew when i struck the water of the lower river the shock was not so great but i went down down until the momentum had spent itself for a few brief moments she was completely underwater but then the submerged barrel came back up under the torrent and that turned out to be worse than the anticipation or the fall she described it as being world like a dasher in a turn after several terrifying minutes constantly spinning and striking rocks the barrel finally popped out from under the cataract and taylor lost consciousness but then the maid of the mist which had resumed operation in eighteen eighty five came to retrieve the barrel chief engineer drawn ross was the person who opened the barrel and exclaimed the woman is very much alive or something similar she replied something along the lines of yes she is so much hurt and confused i don't think i would be that composed in my initial speech after something like that but probably mind would not be fit to print taylor was bleeding from a head wound when she was pulled out of the water and she almost certainly had a concussion but other than that in some bruises she was unharmed she had become the first person known to go over niagara falls and survive like we said earlier thousands of people had come out to watch this stunt and it was covered in the niagara area newspa papers and some other scattered us papers as well but it wasn't really that big of a new sensation elsewhere the boston daily globe had a small feature about it for example but when i looked through the new york times archive i didn't find anything about it as it turned out her manager was incompetent a fraud or both a lot of other wellpublicized stunts at niagara had been performed before throngs of spectators who paid for a seat on bleachers that had been put up just for the event russell didn't arrange anything like that the only thing he tried to.

"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.
