Icelandic Hot Dog Stand and Signing Your Name 250,000 Times
"In the summer of two thousand eight. My wife sarah. And i traveled to europe with another couple. Our friends laura and ryan. I like laura and ryan a lot but one thing you need to know is that they are the sort of people who really try to suck the marrow out of life and make the most of their brief flicker of consciousness and all that stuff. This is very different from my style of traveling wherein i most of the day psyching myself up to do one thing visit a museum perhaps and the rest of the day recovering from the only event on my itinerary. The trip took us from denmark. Sweden and then on to iceland a small and mostly rocky island nation in the north atlantic. That attracts tourists primarily by offering free stopovers to anyone who flies iceland's national airline. Iceland air. I was interested in visiting iceland partly because i have a longstanding fascination with tiny nations and partly because my publisher jewish strauss gable had told me she loved this one hot dog stand in iceland called bayern's be to answer the trips to sweden and denmark had been lovely there were smorgasbords and museums but the highlight had been an evening spent with ryan's swedish relatives. Who lived on the shores of some vast lake in the swedish wilderness. They welcomed us to their home and proceeded to get us blisteringly unprecedentedly. Drunk on sweden's national wicker bronfman. I do not often drink to excess. Because i have an intense fear of hangovers but i made an exception. That evening ryan's relatives taught us swedish drinking songs. And they taught us how to eat pickled herring and my glass kept getting filled with bronwyn until it lasts the eighty year.

"I am with a man whom I have spoken to now for years on the radio Bjorn Lomborg, he said the Hoover Institution And these presidents of the Copenhagen Consensus Center. And Hey, he knows as much as anyone. About the consequences of the policies to come back the global warming or climate change. It has been Orwellian Lee remained I was talking to my producer, a k a. The living murder about his latest book, False Alarm. And when he said something to me, and I said, Why don't you say it on the air? Go ahead. If you're going to read one book on the climate and the issue of global warming, this is the book you should read. It is so reasonable so well researched. I read the book, I think I read a lot of books, I would say last in 20. 20 false alarm. Was the either the best or Certainly in the top three nonfiction books I read last year. So if anybody says to me and people have asked me many times, what should I read on this issue, I say, read false alarm. Good. So, uh, happy you came on board. Journey there. What happened to my dear bureau Blomberg. Everything's connected, and we're not hearing him. Okay. We'll have to reconnect. Ah, here, you know? Yeah. The You have any idea what happened? I have no idea. I was on my headset. So thank you very much for for that endorsement. You've earned it. The It's frightening. So I asked you before what is propelling people. To put the Western world into a form of bankruptcy. Obviously, I'm not pretty tol. You know what Joe Biden is thinking. But when I meet with a lot of these people who are really earnestly, very, very worried about the world. I think there's a couple of different things. If you look at the news, which is now just overwhelming 24 7, you know, you see one hurricane after another on CNN, and you get the impression that they're just Maura and more hurricanes. And of course, lots of people will tell you that they will carefully curate the data such that it looks like this is a catastrophe, and it's just getting worse and worse. S so you may remember back in 2020. We were told this was the extreme Hurricane year. It was a record setting year We ran out of names for these hurricanes Remember? That's because we now have satellite so we can see all the hurricanes also out in the mid ocean that never go anywhere. But if you actually look at the power index, so how much Damage potential were there and those hurricanes? Yes, the North Atlantic was over, Uh, the average but that's you know, to a very large part of al Minya, but the rest of the world was actually actually under so overall. 2020 was one of the weakest hurricane years in the satellite history Yet you never hear that You just see one more hurricane than one will hurt him, so a lot of people get really scared. Then why do politicians say this? Well, politicians have never seen a bandwagon that they don't want to jump on. Right? This is basically a way of being able to say vote for me. I'm going to save you. I'm going to save your kids. I'm going to spend lots of money on different things. And so in that sense, I think the scare campaign that we see now. Is very much like if you remember back in the 19 seventies, we were very worried that there wouldn't be enough food for the world in the eighties were worried about have acid rain of the Rose only remember all of these Had some real points. But much of it was just a vastly exaggerated. Of course, there is lots and lots of money spent on it. That was just wasted. And unfortunately, climate change has the very same tendencies aside what we've seen over the last 50 years. So the Beyond, lumbered explains in his books in his articles, Among other things, is And assume is one asked this question and the mouse speaking to my audience bureau. Uh, yeah, but you're more than welcome to react if you wish, but I've said for all of my broadcast life The question. What is the price? Means that you were no longer and I don't expect you to get political. I'm just telling this to my audience. The question. What is the price? What are the consequences? He's a conservative question. Has never asked on the left. What are the consequences of our policies? So that People live in this world of it can be free. So he asks. That's what your Lamberg asks. He doesn't deny that fossil.

Brittens Ceremony of Carols
"The recent. Tom hanks movie greyhound. The captain of destroyer leads a convoy across the u boat infested north atlantic during world war. Two not say that the trip from the us to britain in nineteen forty two was dangerous is not only an understatement of epic proportion it offers the context for the extraordinary composition of benjamin britten's ceremony of carols britten was arguably the most important british composer of the twentieth century. After three years in north america. He found himself in the middle of the atlantic aboard a swedish cargo vessel trying to return to his native england instead of panicking midst. The harrowing circumstances were too dangerous crossing. He wrote two. Choral works the him to saint cecilia and the ceremony of carols and as the name suggests the ceremony of carols consists of ten carols frame by the chant. Hodie a christie's not to est- today christ is born both the beginning and the end the carol employed day from the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries and are sung in middle and early modern english as well as in latin one. Care all deo gratias. Thanks be to god. Sung a combination of middle english. And latin tells the story of genesis three while the texas primarily about the fall the carols musical energy and emphasis is on thankfulness specifically thankfulness to god for providing a savior who sets things right. The most beloved carol in the work is this little bay. And despite the sentimental sounding title of this carol the tax describes the all out battle that this babe of bethlehem wages against satan himself the tax was written by robert southwell catholic priest who was hanged drawn and quartered by queen elizabeth. The first. here's how it goes this little babes as old as come to rifle. Satan's fold all hell doth add his presence quake though he himself for cold do shake for in his week. Unarmored wise the gates of hell he will surprise. Jeff's version of new york's classical music station w. Q x are caused this little babe his favorite christmas carol in south wales words and britain's music's spurgeon the battle between good and evil is one by quote a baby born in obscure poverty and it's depicted quote not by a huge orchestra and massive voices but by harp in a choir of children will britain the man who pulled all of this off musically could hardly be described as an orthodox christian definitely not a devout one his personal life including his sexual proclivities where the source of numerous controversies during his life even after his death still he was at least if this work composed during a potentially deadly voyage any proof so christ haunted man. Believe it or not in this. Britain's not unusual see so much of the west great art is inspired by christian themes in fact it's impossible to imagine the west cultural heritage without christianity and though much of our greatest art was created by people of unquestionable. Fates johann sebastian. Bach others were produced by people whose faith is unknown known to be non-existent the power that these works hold to move us is at route the power of the story that makes the work possible. The story that explains where human creativity like fully evident in the amazing talent of benjamin britten comes from in the first place and in this case to use virgins words. The story of god sneak attack on the forces of evil. Something will soon celebrate
Washington DC Environmental Film Festival presents virtual fall showcase
"Well, the DC environmental film fest had to scrap its in Person festival in the spring. So it's presenting a virtual fall showcase. It's from November 12 through the 18th. We like to showcase the art of filmmaking. The other side of it, too, is we like to use these films as springboards for additional conversation about the important issues Programming director Brad for Order is excited to show entangled by David Abel.

Behind the Book: Nine Lives Over the North Atlantic with Kerry McCauley
"You must be somebody who really really loves adrenaline jockey that's for. Sure. Yeah, I sure do got to keep the heart going. So you talk about in this book single engine over the Ocean. Boy Really. Sure. Sure. They gotta they gotta get. There's someplace and you gotta find somebody stupid enough to do it so. that. It takes a lot of skill to do that, and so a lot of times people ask though. I know we talk about faring airplanes, 'cause people, purchase planes. There's a lot of reasons to do it I. I'm in a building here where we have a ferry company downstairs. I always think of putting a small plane in a container and shipping it would probably be the best way. So so why would you ferry a plane over the water when you could ship it in a container? Well in a word money I mean it's expensive to take him apart. Shipping is not that expensive expensive to put it back together. But you know last time to play I've heard lots of stories of people doing that and they get there and there's a couple of vital parts missing from the plane and. Becomes a problem. So then they would go toward someone like you that can actually has first of all the knowledge. To fly an airplane, the water and also has more than that has the guts to do. I I'd have to say when you're preparing for this, there's got to be two things involved. I would think there's a psychological aspect and there's also the the whole part of preparing from paperwork and more of a knowledge aspects. So it's talk first about the the knowledge you know what type of things do you need to not do this type of a trip? Well number one you've got to figure out, can the play make the trip? You know what route are you gonNA take you get find fuel stops you need any overflight permits arguments, put ferry tanks in the plane that's kind of the big one. On a few need to make some really long legs over the ocean, most planes can't do it on their standard fuel. So you've got to put very tanks of the plane. So ferry tanks. What are those? Are they metal or a rubber? I freeze the metal ones. They do make rubber ferry tanks at collapses there being used, but the metal ones are more reliable. You take the seats out of the back the out of the back of the plane and put them in the tail basically in. Put the ferry tanks as far forward as you can for CG and. There you go. Extra. When you're when you do that, that's going to be a bit of a cost to the person right to that's part of the cost of doing the first flight. Yeah Yeah. But usually if you've got very tanks in their lifetimes, you can make up the cost or that by skipping stops especially these days a lot of times landing permits and especially foreign countries get to be really expensive. But when you have fourteen hours a range you can. Literally make half the stops that you normally would end if you didn't tanks. So it's Kinda Nice. So each of those stops assuming there are some costs involved in and that type of thing as far as like land permits I'll a definite landing permits these days in foreign countries are getting to be really ridiculous plus these days. Almost every foreign airport requires you to have a handler. Which is adding extra costs me back when I first started three years ago we did everything ourselves you shop at a foreign airport that you'd never been to that. You don't speak the language you just have to dive in fine landing fees get fuel weather food if you got time and do it yourself now they make you hire handler which is nice but expensive. So. Do you really need the handler? No Dan was really bothered me most of the time they're not. They're not very helpful first of all, and it's just the money's right off. You know right off the top every time you spend on your on the road is coming right out of your pocket. So it's It's going to shell out a few hundred dollars or more on a stop just had some guy walk alongside you. Yeah. How did you learn to do all this? I started back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety for flying for a company called Orient Air out of Saint Paul Minnesota. and. My friend's father owned the company. We were army recruits together in the National Guard. and. They needed a pilot ninety job actually was a actually spent a few years trying to get this enough hours to get this job. And got. Hired. Off on the road I went. So yeah. It's some mentors that could help you out Is that something that you would suggest if someone was thinking again, getting into this get was somebody I. Oh, definitely there's so many things that you don't think about when you're getting ready to make especially along ocean crossing. The the weather considerations are. Paramount I. Mean you run unexpected headwinds? Don't leave yourself enough reserve. You might come up short nets usually considered inconvenient
What Susan Rice thinks she could bring to a Biden administration
"I'm Jonathan. Kaye part, and this is Cape up in former President Barack. Obama's first term Susan Rice was the US ambassador to the United Nations. In the second term, she was Obama's National Security Advisor. Today Susan Rice as a private citizen author of tough love, my story of the things worth fighting for and under serious consideration to be Joe. Biden presidential, running name. Here what she has to say about that President Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and whether the president is a national security threat to the United States in the Special Cape Up Life episode right now. Welcome back for the third time to the Cape Up podcast embassador Susan Rice welcome. Thanks so much great to be with you. So leery about one minute before we came on air here, there was breaking news that trump administration drops plan to deport international students in online classes, and your reaction was to applaud explained chance. Well, it was such a misguided. Stupid. Decision that they took in the first place. International students are critical part of our university structure. Our college campuses they bring talent. They bring diversity. They bring resources and to lock them out, simply because their campuses have decided by virtue of the pandemic they need to. Conduct classes, online in the fall was just calloused an. Extraordinarily counterproductive I haven't had a chance to read in detail the reporting on it, but it looks like. The trump administration saw their effort to defend this policy in court was unlikely to succeed and they backed down. And it seems to be a victory for our colleges and universities are students across this country and across the world, because so much of our appeal, our competitiveness, our soft power depends on people around the world, wanting to come here and learn and study bring their skills and talents. So this is a good day. Ambassador. Let's keep talking about foreign policy. Originally, I was going to start this interview talking about the election in Poland and the news of the reelection of Poland's president. Duda and he's an ally of president. Trump's and a supporter of the right wing Law and Justice Party he's been condemned by the e, U and democratic watchdogs, and just wondering how if you think president trump's behavior in the farm policies space his support for leaders like Duda, as contributed to the rise of illiberal nationalist in autocratic regimes around the world. Well certainly legitimize the rise of elected autocrats, and we see that increasingly. Parts of the World Poland is the most recent example it's unfortunate because Poland is an important part of NATO an important part of the EU, but it is moving in a direction where it's values, and its approach are completely out of step with the other members of the alliance and it it suggested. Particularly, when it comes to the EU. Their position could be in jeopardy down the road if if there is a further move towards anti democratic policies and structures. Ambassador is it possible for the alliance to even survive if the super in the alliance, the United States doesn't even bother to champion those small D, democratic ideals that have been the cement for Alliance for more than seven decades. All the NATO alliance is under duress. Because of president trump's callous disregard for the purposes and the interest of this alliance, our alliance with NATO is built on common values, but it's also built on interest that we stand together as North American allies North Atlantic allies. And Atlantic. And Europe broadly to counter threats to our sovereignty and territorial integrity is in alliance at which come chiefly from Russian. And when the United States, Questions the value of our lines turns it into a transactional arrangement when president trump decides to unilaterally withdraw third of our horses from Germany without even consulting with the German government and calls our adversaries from Russia to China to North Korea while putting our allies in a very difficult position, it does great damage to the alliance in that's one of the many reasons why we need change I don't think NATO, and our leadership role in the world can withstand for more years of Donald Trump. And, that's why we need change, and we need leadership in the form of Joe Biden who comes out of the bipartisan American tradition of supporting our alliances of understanding who our friends are, and who are adversaries are, and that our leadership and our strength in the world is enhanced when we can bring partners and allies with us.
Flying Into a DITCH
"Somebody wrote in saying that flying over water was a hole in their training, and is there anything they can do? Of course they can take anything they can do to prepare for flying over water. In this case in the Caribbean on it brings up a great point because the entire reason we. We created the airplane camp trip. islands of the Pacific northwest was to cover this particular. Particular hole in training. There's just not a lot out there about what it might be like to ditch an airplane or how to prepare, you know we've all read opened the doors before impact and you know, wear your your life jacket, but be beyond that. Will you know what is there so so I will say I off in this sounds like an unashamed sales pitch, but Maybe it is. On the island trip covers all that we get a life raft from winslow, one of these five thousand dollar liferafts that you're supposed to pack on board when you fly over water, we give everybody time in a sea plane, so you can kind of. Impact on the water is like we have ferry pilots on staff. People like Peter Lert who have crossed the north, Atlantic, more than fifty times, and we, we really try to cover this knowledge but I'll do the best I can here in the podcast to tell you some of the major points, and some of the stories that I conveyed those pilots that come to the airplane camp. We kind of a campfire evening talks, and some of those stories. Some of the kind of knowledge we can pass down is is really powerful. so first of all. Let's just cover the basics I mean. If you're not within power off gliding distance from shore, you should be wearing a life jacket and you should probably wear the kind that sailors us that aren't inflated. Of just their little tubes like snakes that go around your neck. and you should take out. The automatic inflates co two cartridge so that if the aircraft fills up with water, the life jacket doesn't deploy in the aircraft right, but that you can easily deployed once. You're clear the airplane. and you should investigate if you're going for long over water flights a liferaft like the one I described from winslow. One of the we do tell people in the ferry. Pilots convey for to us. Is that the Life Jack? The life raft really has to be readily accessible I mean in a perfect world on your lap. Really so you have to have it in a location in the airplane where you can just grab it. It's pretty common knowledge in any survival situation. Ditching included that what you're only gonNA. Have the things that you're wearing. So you know putting that whole picture together. If you're by yourself, you'd probably want to be wearing survival vast full of gear. Maybe dye markers signal mirrors on first aid kits, things like that on and also a lot, a personal afo tation device a PF de around your neck with the. Automatic inflate inflation cartridge out and a life. Raft if need be just. Maybe arm's distance in between the front seat in the seats on the just easily grab. now having said all that I'm GONNA. Tell you a story. The most enlightening story that I've ever heard because there's not a lot of information out there about what it's like to actually hit the water outside of the advanced pilot flight manual where Bill Kirschner talks a little bit about you know ditching in a in a fixed gear airplane which? is most likely. GonNa Flip GonNa hit once, and then Kirschner describes the second hit as a flip, sometimes the first hit the flip. so it's a pretty violent impact outside of that book. I haven't encountered a lot of information but I did see a lecture at Oshkosh. One year, probably the most valuable lecture at ever seen at Oshkosh gentlemen and a two ten who ditched in Lake Erie near put in Bay outside of Cleveland in a to ten, so he had gear, the gear was up, and he ditched. Everybody survived the ditching, and he ditched next to a ferryboat, which is a wise idea. If you're an open water, next to any boat. Really and somebody onboard. The ferry boat captured video, so you were able to listen to this lecture while watching video of the actual event. And he described the landing itself as very very smooth in a retractable gear airplane. He described like someone grabbing the tail and pulling to a hard stop, and he said that immediately after the airplane came to a stop, the water level was pretty much at the Lindbergh. Reference right there at the window. You know the forward window just on the pilot side. And he had forgotten to do two things he'd forgotten to open the doors and he'd forgotten to lock the baggage compartment so because the doors weren't open. The airplane floated there for a second, and he had a chance to turn to everybody and say hey, is everybody okay on? Everyone said yes, under your seat belts, and which point. He opened the door, I think he had to open the window I. The airplane flooded. Now, he was a very big guy, so he was able to lean into the door and get it open. One risk of not opening the door ahead of time would be that you couldn't get it open. Due to the pressure. Until you flooded the airplane but he did say it was valuable to have that moment. You know floating for everybody. Because the minute the door opened the airplane nosedive to the bottom of the lake about fifteen feet down. Everybody Swam Free Except the woman in the very back seat, so in the to ten is a six seater. She panicked and tried swimming up through the window, the plastic window in the baggage compartment so he dove down once he realized someone was missing open to the baggage door because it wasn't locked, forgotten to lock it and pulled her out by her feet. All of this is on video from the ferry boat. It's a it's an interesting story. Because of you know the how it played out for him to have. The doors closed versus open was interesting. And thinking through locking the baggage compartment. If anyone does need to get in there and rescue, you They're going to be able to do that if it's locked so. Anyway I hope that sort of helps, organize thoughts on just flying over water in
Whale Protections Need Not Cause Lobstering Losses
"There's a lot of cash crawling on the sea floor. American lobsters, bringing more money than any other US Fisher, a record, six hundred and seventy million dollars in two, thousand, sixteen, mostly through Maine Massachusetts. The fishery relies on traditional lobster harvest techniques. A series of traps is drops to the ocean floor with a long rope attached to a floating buoy during peak fishing season. There's over nine hundred thousand vertical lines right in the middle of right whale habitat graduate student, Hannah Myers. Myers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of fisheries and ocean sciences, those vertical lines entangle and kill endangered sea turtles and multiple whale species, including the North Atlantic right whales, only about four hundred individuals remain, and recent analyses show that the species won't survive if humans kill an average of one whale each year, some estimates indicate that lobster in gear kills more than three whales each year on average management problems. Problems surrounding the north? Atlantic right whale and entanglements are pretty significant and have been really challenging to move forward, and a large part of that is due to expected negative economic impact in the lobster fishery, but right we'll protections don't have to mean lobster losses, Canada's lobster harvest operates with fewer traps and a shorter six-month-long season. The US lobster fishery in Maine expense, approximately seven and a half times as much as. As, the Canadian fishery to catch the same amount, and Canadians are catching almost four times more lobster protract. They're putting less effort into it and spending less on fuel and equipment, but they're still gathering nearly the same amount of lobster overall, and there are stateside examples in Massachusetts areas that have had a seasonal closure. In recent years have reached a record high landings. The study was published in the Journal. Marine policy. Restrictions could actually mean a healthier lobster population overall it paradoxical, but it is consistent with a lot of fisheries research that shows that when you fish with too much effort and too many traps in the water. The stock itself isn't as robust so one thing we might expected that you would either have you know more or larger lobsters if there if fewer. Fewer traps into water, coming into each trap, and therefore able to haul up more lobster trap, and that's kind of what we see on the Canadian side, taking some of those ropes out of the water could benefit both the whales and the Fisher. Our main takeaways that a negative economic impact should not be assumed with effort reduction in the US fishery.
Check This Out
"I had an opportunity to fly a GRUMMIN. This is an airplane that I've never flown before. Or if I did. It was like one hour fifteen or twenty years ago So it was interesting to sort of approach. The process and I was doing it. With Steve Randell Redwood bus driver here at thermal airport and it was funny because Steve used to be a ferry pilot that is. He's to take airplanes from Europe to the United States back to Europe across the North Atlantic. flying all sorts of different makes and models and when? Steve asked me if I wanted to come. The grandma and my first question to him was yeah. That's that's awesome. What kind of engine does it have? He tells me it's a lycoming three twenty so immediately. I know a lot about the airplane and engine familiar with Doesn't require call labs hundred sixty horsepower. Usually you know. I know I can operate that engine. I essentially know how it's going to perform and The next day we go to fly the plane and and at least that component of it. I'm very familiar with and it was funny. Because AS WE'RE TAXING OUT. Steve the comment you know if if you know the engine airplane and I thought it was really great validation to hear a ferry pilots. Say That somebody WHO's used to jumping in and out of so many different airplanes so as you transition from an airplane. You know to win that you don't. Here's a couple of thoughts one is like. We just said no the engine if it may be flown that engine. There's only a certain number of aircraft engines out there and up in circulation so it's possible even probable that you've seen that engines somewhere else. The second thing read the pilot's operating handbook cover to cover. I'll never forget flight lesson. I had with a guy named Don styles is to get checked out in a Moonie. This is probably ten years ago and I more than ten years ago at this point and I walked in and Dan said did you read the Ph. And I said yeah he said. Did you read it? Cover to cover every page and I said well I've read most of it. You know I I. I kind of skimmed over the emergencies and I looked at the systems. He kind of stopped me right there and said all right. Let's let's do this and we walked through that book. I mean. We walked through that book. Page after page after page for probably four hours. That was the entire first lesson in the checkout and I paid don for his time there. It was maybe an extreme sort of point. He was trying to make but I learned a lot that day and not just about the Mooney. I learned that. Yes when you show up to get checked out in an airplane. It is not unreasonable or unrealistic. For the I to think that you would have read the Peo- H. Cover to cover the second thing I learned. You'll learn a lot when you do that. I mean really. It's not a huge book. It's the old Glen p Wass general limitations. Emergency Normal for Mints Weight and Balance. And all that sort of stuff right. There's a little format to it. It's one hundred and some pages. Maybe maybe maybe not quite that much but definitely worth the four or five hours. It's going to take you to sit there and go through it. Page by page you will absolutely walk away knowing far more about that airplane than you ever thought possible or certainly than you ever would have. Had you not done that? So checking out in a new airplane. Make sure that you've gone over the PH cover to cover. If you know the engine there you go. You've got some experience in the aircraft and then when you finally go for your checkout flight your with your instructor or your with pilot that's familiar. My belief is every problem in an airplane can be solved by knowing where to look and when to look there so the minute you sit down in that airplane Start to get familiar with those visual references. While you're taxing make sure that you're trying to find the reference that indicates whether or not you are not on the centerline before you even leave the the tide area before the engine's running you might WanNa have your instructor or the pilot. You're flying with sort of down on the on the empty nausea and lift the nose so that you can get a feel for what the airplane will look like in the landing flare but the idea is that from the minute you sit down in that aircraft you are looking for visual reference points that will give you the information you need about the angle of attack of the airplane and the alignment of the airplane along the runway and whether you are not on the centerline a couple of other things you might want to consider are getting used to coordination so slow the airplane way down and do some fast rolling and see if get a feel for how the rudder works is it a is it a heavy push like it sometimes is in town or is it a nice gentle push like you get in a DA forty and finally when you come in to land. Maybe your first landing isn't a landing at all. Maybe your first landing is a go-round get a feel for how the airplane accepts the power application. What it feels like as the flaps retract if there are flaps and how quickly the airplane is able to climb away from the ground. If you're flying something like you add power and boom. That thing is airborne in other airplanes. Like one fifty. Arab at Texas Tail. Drager for example. You're stuck on the ground for a few seconds there before the airplane is ready to fly again so knowing this stuff can can be figured out to some extent by doing low altitude. Go Round

Sound Of The River
"This time a story a story about a river a very special river. It's the river you can hear flowing in the background through a forest somewhere in New Zealand. The river you can hear is the Wanganui River. This recording was made recently by this woman. My name is heike like hope and Mima Danish audio storyteller documentary-maker Pica held a spent a lifetime making documentaries and stories in sound documentaries and stories in sound at a full of characters places events but almost always in our work there are also the sounds of nature like stories. That have this ECO. Centric quality where it's not necessarily humans that are in the middle where where there's When Nature Plays Part? I've always had since I was a kid. I've always had this feeling that nature sort of reflected itself into me I I would feel like a mountain I would feel like make I would feel like it's three and I've had since early childhood SLA very strong sensory experiences from Mater. I think sound is fluid. It spacious like nature is so there's something that's always been something about working with sound that mirrors this perception I have of the world and that mirrors may and can connect them like bay sometimes in sort of pristine moments also connect within me emotionally or as ideas. It's something that affects you when you're there. So how can you tell a story where whether it comes across where it's not just backdrop or pretty picture but it's actually a strong force a character almost in the story documentaries and stories come from very remote places very often places like the far north of Canada Greenland places all around Scandinavia and across the North Atlantic islands? But her latest project takes back to a place where she spent time growing up. I've just started working on a project. Actually it's a liar. I feel like I've been working on it for a long time of wanted to work on it and it's been on my mind. It's a project about the Wanganui River. It flows from the center of the North Island of New Zealand to the coast to the task. Mansi three hundred kilometers or so the river special to me because I grew up in New Zealand lift by this river and my family immigrated to New Zealand in the seventy s and we lived in in Wanganui which is the town that where the river flows into the sea and all trading station built by European settlers. So for me. It's it's personally special. And then I learnt that one canoeing river have gained legal status as a as a human entity which means that it has the rights and duties and liabilities of a legal person the Wanganui river now a legal person or legal entity one of the first natural places in the world to be given this sort of legal standing accepting a river as illegal person presents. Many challenges to the way we think about the world and it presents challenges to documentary-maker how can a documentary portray the river itself as a character as a person as an entity? Where do you begin? Did you know that the river is a human being to us? We've always had signed from the mountain to the say I the river as May. So how do you tell a story whether whether river is the main the center? I'm not sure how to that practically you know. How do I connect with the river and and figure out why didn't want to say

A Brief History of NATO
"If you drive today from France to Germany you may see a few sheep. But you won't see a Border Guard. You won't change money and you will see no tanks and soldiers that border is undefended. That border is the site of untold bloodshed. It's today undefended because NATO and the European Union and processes of integration have made those borders geopolitically inconsequential. You know what I never actually thought about it that way. You know how last summer I was on that train from Paris to Berlin. I didn't even know when I left France and entered Germany. No soldiers incite. Yeah okay wait. Can we just start with what NATO stands for? Nato stands for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO NATO alliance North Atlantic Treaty Organization and it is a body formed in one thousand nine hundred forty nine to commit the members of the alliance to Collective Defence. I E an attack on one is an attack on all we are in this together. It is an institution that keeps US safe. We don't lie awake at night worrying that somebody is going to invade that we look out the window and see tanks and troops coming and that's in part because starting in nineteen forty nine. The United States reached out to Canada reached across the Atlantic to its democratic partners in Europe. And said we're going to hang together. We're going to unite against threats to the peace that alliance has been around ever since nineteen forty nine and it has succeeded in keeping this community of Atlantic democracies since April four ninety nine critic was by Norway Denmark Belgium Luxembourg France Italy Portugal United Kingdom Iceland Canada and the United States. This Union of qualifications became known as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization or more simply NATO. So let's go back to the beginning a bit. How did this all start? How did NATO form? Well you have to go back to the nineteen thirties. When the United States basically became a passive bystander and was staunchly isolationist as fascism began to spread all over the world mainly in Europe and Asia but also began to spread its tentacles further and the United States. Tried to stay out of it. That strategy didn't work Pearl Harbor. We all know the story of the. Us enters were to be some some nine thousand nine hundred forty one eight date which will live in infamy United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by Naval Air Forces of the Empire of Japan at the end of World War. Two we go into this big debate about well. What do we do now? Do we go back to being a hemispheric power. Do we bring back all the troops and pull out of Asia and Europe or do we stay put and that question was answered by the Cold War. By the fact that the Soviet Union which was our ally in World War Two became our chief adversary by the late. Nineteen forties when peace returned the western Allies de mobilized the Soviet Union maintained an overwhelming military superiority on the European continent. Both during and immediately after the war the Soviet Union forcibly brought under its control the whole cities of countries in eastern Europe and it was because of fear that if the United States did withdraw from Europe that the Soviets would overrun Germany France Britain and the industrialized powers of the West. That we basically say we're staying put and we are going to form an alliance with our key partners in Europe to prevent the Soviet Union and Communism
