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

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.

"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

A thrilling naval rescue off the coast of Nova Scotia

"When things start to go wrong on the open ocean sometimes they go really wrong really quickly. We make really good boats. We have state of the art navigation systems and we have all the emergency measures in the world to prevent disaster still. We don't belong there. The Sea is not our turf. And if you've ever seen a movie about a nautical disaster it's not that far off from reality about a year ago off the eastern coast of Canada. Things went really wrong really quickly. And all that state of the art technology wasn't working when that happens the boat and its crew can't do much outs but put out an emergency distress call and pray that somebody answers it and that those people are close enough to help and if they're really lucky at the ships that answer. The call are part of the Royal Canadian Navy and are prepared to undertake one of the most dramatic. Rescues that you'll hear about outside of a Hollywood pitch meeting. This is the story of that rescue. I'm Jordan he throwing. This is the big stars. Nick Taylor busy of Maclean's chronicled the whole dramatic tale. An hello first of all what is the McKenna McKenna is a forty nine foot yacht. It's called the Hanse four ninety five. It was on the inside of beautiful boat. I don't know a whole lot of boats but I saw some photos Of the cabin and it was decked out you could wash dishes on that thing you could sleep very comfortably and you could sail the high seas. It's a fairly rich person vessel. Yeah I mean it's the kind of you buy when you have some money to buy a boat. So what happened to her well The owner of the boat was named John Hagen. He's a surgeon who lives here Toronto. And he asked a broker who is in the area where he should by boat so John and the broker whose name was pat sturgeon Had A few conversations and they found the McKenna in Greece. In this Mediterranean port called left us their mission was to buy the boat and then find a way to get her to Canada. How do you get a boat to Canada when you buy it overseas? I mean I guess. There's an obvious answer to that question. Well Yeah I mean you you usually on the water but there are a few options you can. You can bring a boat over in a container ship shipped almost package kind of thing or if you want to maybe save a little money depending or have a little more flexibility you can hire skipper to get on that boat. Hire a small crew and take it where you want. And this is what he did. And that's what he did. So tell me. But the the captain and the crew and and I guess what Rupert Mondro does because this is a job that I didn't know existed. It's an unbelievable story. How he started doing what he's doing he was born in South Western. England in Devon Place called barnstable. He was a trained actor at one point. He had his own company. He went bankrupt. He told me at the age of Twenty Eight. He was Drifting around I think thinking what do I do next at that point and so he got on a boat and loved. It started sailing and eventually he started delivering goods because he was very good. Skipper and so twenty five years. He did that until the he was he was hired to bring the McKenna across the Atlantic But he he's just a natural born c fair when you talk to him about it You know it's it's like he was born on the water and the way people talk about him is a remarkable. They say it's almost as if he doesn't need instruments he he can sail the seas just by sort of you know putting his finger in the wind and saying little now the waves are gonna come this way so we better go this way and You know he has autopilot. And all the fancy instruments but He's he's been spent the latter half of his life Just having fun sailing boats around the world and he's gone almost everywhere so he captained the McKenna taking it. I guess from Greece to Canada. Yeah he he brought crew And a cook And in October of two thousand eighteen they they met in in Greece and they spent a few days. They're getting ready Inspecting the boat making sure everything was in working order. It was by all accounts. A beautiful boat the McKenna was in very good condition and And ready for the voyage. He said By text to John. The surgeon Looking wonderful we're GONNA get going and so. They sailed through the Mediterranean. They had to stop in Italy everywhere. They talked with scenic about away but they stopped in Italy to fix a a steering problem fixed. It kept going. Stop at Gibraltar for a little while whether stopped them from going much. Further few days finally got onto the Azores which was the final stop before the Atlantic crossing Weather stop them again. There's a lot of weather in the late fall in the North Atlantic relatively treacherous waters so They were waylaid for for a while and It it took them quite a bit of time to get from Greece to the stores But then in November they set sail for Halifax what happened well. A lot of bad things happened relatively quickly The the treacherous weather caught up with them again. Rupert had this satellite phone that he borrowed from another sailor and he was able to get weather reports on sort of four or five hour delays. So he would check the forecast and based on what it said he would. He would steer the boat in a different direction. There was a big weather system coming in a big low pressure system from the South who was moving north and he and his crew. We're GONNA try to beat it to the north and they almost got there when you when you look at some of the screengrabs. They have of the of the weather patterns but they didn't quite make it and we're caught in this little arm of what they all refer to everyone involved in this as a hurricane. It was not a named hurricane but it was hurricane-force winds and it had this little arm whipping around and got caught in it and It for twenty four hours totally ravaged the boat crew was hunkered down The waves were were roaring. The wind was ripping through the rigging of the masks on On the on the boat and they were I mean they were they were rolling safely but quite violently through huge waves the kind of waves that you would see in big bad blockbuster movies you know. Not Maybe not the biggest of the big but huge so The weather data and they and they survived that The boats survived intact. They didn't capsize anything. Like that. But When it was safe to emerge in sort of inspect the damage rupert who Never saw probably couldn't fix came out and saw problem he almost couldn't fix because Man It was. Just it was torn. The steering was broken. The rudder was at a place it took some real Seafaring ingenuity to even get the boat. Operable again he and they kept going well. The steering quadrant was broken. The the the sort of mechanism that connects the rudder to the autopilot into the anything you need to actually change direction in the boat. He had to flip it around and turn it one hundred and eighty degrees the steering quadrant and then welded into place. Not Welding really. He had a cables and whatever it was at its disposal that would keep things together and worked. And so he I think the cruise airing macgyver. I got yeah he really was a seafaring macgyver and I think the crew was stunned They they were texting as well back to John. The surgeon who was a little helpless at this point in probably starting to feel a little guilty by boat is in the middle of the North Atlantic Middle North Atlantic. And his crew. That I sent. There's with it in. Oh my God we can even do and so. He was getting texts. They're saying we're pretty sure Rupert Scott under control because he's a pretty you know stoic. Man and And he did and they kept going and then well and then I hit more weather goodness. It never really stopped. They were chugging at this point as fast as they could to Halifax where the boat was gonNA spend the winter before coming to Toronto in the spring but more weatherhead This time the forecast racist dead wrong it. It misled Rupert and And his crew and they found themselves overtaken by a storm that I don't think was hurricane force but was nevertheless the kind of thing that would damage a boat. That's already been that's already damaged it just. His ingenuity was Was unfortunately Somewhat beaten down two to nothing by the storm so they found themselves once it had calmed a little bit and they were able to assess the situation adrift at Sea. What do you do in a situation like that? Well in this case what you do. Is You look for boats in the vicinity of your of your boat? Anybody who can help. You is a savior and fortunately for the McKenna. There were two Canadian navy ships. Who happened to be coming home from a mission a training mission in And War Games in Europe and they were only about eight nautical miles away from the McKenna. When everything went Super Ri- so rupert the captain got on the radio with Peter McNeil the captain of HMCS glaze Bay talked a little bit and Ships turned towards the McKenna it was glaze. Bay and HMCS summerside two coastal defence vessels. Which are two of the smaller ships in the fleet? But by comparison to the McKenna they were quite large and probably looked a you. Know a welcome sight to about adrift without any ability to really go anywhere on. Its own power and then they rescued them and it was no problem. In the story is over everything's Peachy The ship came and they just pluck them out. No it was really difficult. The story of this rescue is the stuff of a movie. This podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? You need a plan

"north atlantic" Discussed on WGN Radio

"I had the pleasure of being in Scotland of all things at this time of the year I usually had cooler northwards but this time I headed across the pond to Scotland and Ireland. and what I want to start off with is really something that I hadn't expected and that is the grouse population in Scotland it has virtually disappeared. and as you may know the many of you may know that the the grouse moors in Scotland world famous not only for their management for their numbers of Krause into the second year in a row most of the mortars I have closed their seasons because of the collapse in the grouse population is being caused in part by any worm that seems to be getting into the brains of the crowds and that's obviously fatal for them and they've also had had very bad nesting conditions so the famous grouse moors really all across Scotland and and in England are and are really pretty dire straits and and the only way that a lot of people can keep these mortgage calling is through honey and so for the second year in a row they are facing a remarkable hardship and it just makes me think about how cyclical wild birds are we're seeing it here in United States with the really that. a lapse of block brown's populations and we think it's due to the fact that they've got west Nile in them only she was happy with the sage grouse so it's not just they just don't look mereka problem the other thing that I encounter that I hadn't expected was the salmon runs and also virtually wiped out so a trip that to a place that's what really known through for a long time for its exceptional bird hunting and in release pretty good salmon fishing I found that people saying that well there's there's very little of either in this family situation that's taking place in Scotland and Ireland yeah absolutely parallels what we're seeing in the eastern part of Canada in North America the salmon population is collapsing. and we don't seem to understand why but we do seem to know pretty clearly that the number of salmon are returning to their native streams whether it be in Ireland and Scotland are now in in Canada is is just a fraction of what it was a few years ago which is a fraction of what it was before that so we we appear to be on the verge of of some kind of a collapse in the Atlantic salmon population in even the great river the panel I in in in Norway was the largest salmon in the world with the car are there numbers appear to be in decline to sell its stake international problem one of the boxes being Sprouse than in Ireland and in Scotland which also may be applying. while the Lennix salmon is that the bait fish populations have been so severely depleted due to the commercial falling fleets that salmon are having to go further from their normal feeding areas defined I love food and the further you go whether it's a bird fish the further you have to my great the greater the peril the along with the rest of your journey just like traveling in a car view that a driver will close the coast versus just going one state across it's a much more arduous trip and so the the general belief of those in Scotland Ireland is at the bait fish population that was historically in the feeding grounds relatively close to the code those two codes it has really been harmed in the sailor having to go further which makes them vulnerable to all kinds of things in that migration but the bottom line is we have a really a worldwide or north Atlantic. crisis going on with salmon and that you go to the restaurant obviously but the grocery store and see Sam that that's farm raised salmon it's not the the wild fish that that has driven the economies of these areas for a long time and obviously also driven church Mister berry it's a very sad story to tell the other thing that's happening in Scotland which is happening off the. west coast of Canada is that they have placed fish farms at the mouth these rivers. to raise the commercial fish in the sixth forms are. yes in the context they're they're like a large hog farm over there in the water so the amount of refuse coming out of these fish and the diseases that the fish have been fish farms are working their way into the wild fish population and one of the real experts in Scotland and fish said that what happens is when the wild salmon come back up these rivers and have to swim by these big enclosed fish farms they are picking up once in the life which does not kill the commercially rage fish why does killed the the wild salmon so the salmon if they get lights on them in sufficient numbers it kills and and the lights have been introduced by the commercial fish forms which is basically just it's it's a hog farm acceptance of the water so it is a is a colossal problem we don't know we're our stamina come from if you think about it in a commercial sense for eating we figured out the way to raise them in is in it's in these big in close farms amounts of these rivers but that is what is

Of nineteen sixty Norwegian couple the venture held instead and his wife the archaeologist Tina sailed up to a remote tiny fishing village called Lance meadows and the rugged northern tip of new found land on Canada's Atlantic coast.

"Patterns when those trade winds relaxed during now Nino the water rushes to the east shuts off that cold upwelling in the eastern Pacific and changes rain patterns and actually patterns of winter warmth around the world. So let's talk about the global ocean conveyor belt when was the last time we saw a big change in its patterns there are two parts of the global ocean. Conveyor belt, people talk a lot about the North Atlantic conveyor about that one shifted around two thousand and eight it started to reduce strength. We have an array scientists have set up an array of of instruments across the North Atlantic that go from Florida all the way to Africa, and they measure the strength of that current and we've been doing that since about two thousand and four and the strength of the Murdiano overturning circulation or do a little bit in two thousand eight and as an has continued to be fairly low low of low of the earlier values since then why why? Well, that's a good question. It's actually a vigorous scientific debate. My wife is an oceanographer at the university of Washington, and we actually debate this over the kitchen table, so one possibility is that the Murdiano overturning circulation is slowing down in response to global warming that. Melting of ice and increases in rainfall up in the northern latitudes. Have made the water there less dense less likely to sync and flow south back towards the equator that happens at the high latitudes. The water is is normally cooled as it's cooled it becomes denser, and it'll sync right to the bottom and then flows. Southward along the east coast of North America under the Gulfstream, which is flowing northward. There's a big cool patch now over the last couple years between Greenland and Europe that shows up when the Murdiano overturning circulation slows down because you're bringing less warm water northward, and so the ocean cools there. There's warming off the east coast of North America off New England higher sea level rise goes without warming. So those are all possibilities. But there are other scientists who say in fact that this is a more like a decade awful oscillation in the winds. They're removing more heat from the ocean, east of Greenland, and it'll take a while to sort that out. I think whether this is a decade loss elation. Or a long term change. What about the stuff in the water, and I'm thinking both of living things like fish, and where they move around. And where they migrate. And also the garbage piles the plastic piles in the Pacific that swirl around huge, hundreds of miles of plastics is that all driven by these currents where fish are. And where garbage is. So let's start with the garbage. I think so the great garbage patch in the north Pacific is a direct consequence of ocean currents, you have trade winds at low latitudes that are blowing from east to west and then again at high latitudes. You have the westerlies. And so you have water flowing north from the near the equator, and then also water flowing south from the higher latitudes. And they carry with them plastic and garbage those currents actually concentrate the garbage in garbage patch in the middle of the north Pacific. There's a similar one in all the oceans, and what about fish? What about fish, certainly, the currents will move? Them. They're these fascinating storms in the ocean. You mentioned hurricanes in the in the atmosphere there analogues in the ocean. They're very slow. They take years to cross the ocean. But they're called Eddie's rings, and those can actually carry a little ecosystem with them away from where they originated from to where they end up. So how much do we actually understand about ocean currents? And I'm asking that obviously, we know a lot. But let's say when when that plane m h three seventy crashed into the ocean, and we still haven't been able to find it. And you would think if we really knew with precision exactly what was happening with the water. We'd be able to figure out where something would end up after a period of time. But we couldn't what do you think is that a bad example in terms of how well we understand the currents. I'm not an expert on aviation at my my understanding is that they didn't know exactly where that plane went down. Right. But if they did you think they'd be able to find it..

"There were all these laws that were passed that required ships to carry more lifeboats. Yes. Well, I think when we think about the Titanic we have to disregard for the moment films. We've seen about the Titanic and put ourselves in the position of captains of ships on the North Atlantic at that time sea ice was known as a problem. But it was not the problem that caused massive loss of life. It could damage ship. But there was always time for the rescue of the passengers and crew. So the Titanic was really a case where every. Worked out wrong and the rest, you didn't come. The lesson of the Titanic for a lot of the contemporaries was that you must have enough lifeboats for everyone on the ship. And this was the result of of the tragic loss of lives of people who could not get into them. However, there was another paisley Eastland a ship that capsized in Chicago harbor in one thousand nine hundred fifteen and it killed eight hundred forty one people that was fourteen more than the passenger toll of the Titanic. The reason for it in power. It was the extra life boats. That were added that made this already unstable ship even more unstable. And that again proves that when you're talking about unintended consequences. It's not that easy to know the right lessons to draw. It's it's really a question of the system. How the ship was loaded the ballast and many other things. It is an amazing example of how we are kind of wire to react, right? Like, something bad happens and then to solve it or to prevent it. The the reaction or the solution that we put forward has worse consequences than do nothing. Yes. Well, I think we can say that very often the means that you put in place after some kind of disaster will in the long run lead to the next as Astor. For example, new bridge designs have a life span of about thirty years. There are some disaster that leads to a new type of bridge and then engineers get more and more confident in the design. They get bolder and bolder, and then there are some kind of new catastrophe that leads to. Sibling that technology and the cycle starts all over again. I mean, it sounds like what you're saying. Is that it look there's no point in worrying about this stuff or bothering with this stuff? Because you know, the course of history is the course of history that we can't necessarily shape it, and I wonder whether whether that's true. I'm not saying that we should we should do nothing that that we shouldn't take any any action that we should also realise that really two things happen that first of all the positive outcomes that we expect are usually not nearly as as positive as we imagine them. But also the negative things don't turn out in the same way. For example. We tend to think that what is going on. It's just going to go on and on and get worse and worse or this going to go on and on and get better. And better and reality usually have surprises for us. You know as as scary as climate change. Right. There's some value in anticipation the worst case scenarios, and then trying to prevent them. I think it's very important that the fear of worst-case scenarios is leading to all kinds of proposals for geo engineering for one hundred percent renewable power. I'm all for this. And I think it's very good. That our fear of apocalypse is motivating that. So I don't dispute that at all. But I don't think it's really terribly helpful unless you're actually working on something concretely to deal with the problem to worry too much about the problem. If there isn't something that you can do about it. I don't know. I mean, I think you're right. And I feel very reassured by this. But you know in the middle of the night when I wake up in a cold sweat. I'm thinking we're like at the very edge of destroying ourselves. Like this. This can be the end of our species..
