Greenland Island Is World's Northernmost Island

"In the architects say they've inadvertently discovered the world's most Northern Ireland. The Danish and Swiss team revealed that they thought was that they were in a different place until they checked their position and found they were on a previously undiscovered 30 square meter agglomeration of mud and rock. Mike Sanders has more details. The scientists flew by helicopter to what they thought was Kodak Island to collect samples, no great excitement there. That tiny outcrop has been known about since 1978 but when they checked their position with the Danish official in charge of registering Arctic islands There were 800 M further north. Team leader Martin Rush of the University of Copenhagen said they were standing on land closer to the North Pole than anyone had been on before.

Kamala Harris Distances Herself From Joe Biden's Afghanistan Catastrophe

"Miranda devine on fox news yesterday. A new york post reporter had a pretty interesting analysis. Not only joe biden but of the fabled popular kamala harris the vice president she was. She's been front and center on all things biden. Remember all the press conferences with carmela harris by his side. Where is she now. Unfortunately this has been a debacle afghanistan. Joe biden owns it. He stinks of failure and defeat and she wants to be as far away from that she possibly tan. She's trying to keep her reputation intact. It's it's quite a betrayal of the vice president. I think not to be standing by the president side when he. He's now given to sort of speeches. I guess you'd call them in this since friday. Since this verse a problem started to rear its head. And it's i guess require remarkable that she has decided not to show solidarity with the president. And chose you where the white house is ash. She i suppose is thinking that you will be stepping into the president shoes. But i think it's really quite strange that she's forging ahead with this trip to southeast asia. Which i think is really a mistake. She's forging ahead. yeah she's going to vietnam. Where do we send the vp. Let's senator vietnam. Why don't we send her to antarctica. Maybe we could just put her in an outpost at the north pole gutters far away from this messes possible holy cow. What a mess worried right now. This is a true crisis.

Why Is Snow on the Alps Turning Red?

"Glacier blood. No it's not a new flavor from heavy metal water company liquid death glacier blood is what some call the phenomenon of snow on the alps turning red and the snow isn't read from some type of pollutant or something like when that chocolate factory accidently coated whole town in switzerland with reddish brown cocoa dust last year. It's a naturally occurring phenomenon as the result of snow. Algae quoting the bbc normally these micro algae have a green color as they contain chlorophyll. The family pigments produced by most plants to help them absorb energy from sunlight. However when the snow algae grew prolifically and are exposed to strong solar radiation they produce red colored pigment molecules known as carotenoids which act as sunshield to protect their chlorophyll and quotes now. This red snow is not a new phenomenon or even a new discovery. The bbc notes that it's mentioned as early as eighteen nineteen in a book about an arctic expedition the year prior and the new york times points to aristotle as having the first written observation of red snow. It also doesn't just happen in the alps. Researchers two years ago found samples of what they've dubbed sanguine. Ah in europe. North america south america the south pole and as clearly illustrated by that eighteen nineteen book the north pole new occurrences do seem to be increasing however and some recent findings are shedding more light on the bizarre spectacle while the data isn't fully there yet most researchers believe climate change is responsible for the increase in red snow leeann bending a professor of interface geochemistry at the german research centre for geosciences in potsdam told the bbc quote the rise in the atmosphere carbon dioxide levels increases the temperature which leads to more snow melting. The moment there is liquid water on the snow. The algae start growing and quotes

What sokolow of about the requirements you have to meet to break this world record show yet so To break the world record of the youngest person to fly solo around the world in it'd be flying in a i was single engine aircraft Maximum gross takeoff of something less than twelve thousand pounds. Or something like that. I'm pretty sure So to wait below that limit But is that. I also need to Suck and navigate the globe basically equal distance. I fly to cancer. So that's twenty one thousand five hundred twenty miles or thereabouts Which means Technically i could flights north pole circle the north pole wants and just zigzag until done twenty one thousand five twenty miles. Obviously that's very fun. It's a lot more fun. Just fly around the world and seal these crazy places on maitlis people and obviously you need to be younger than the current world record.

"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.

"Say well ourselves, and we want everyone else to say. There have been a lot of concerns about Christmas presents packages not getting toe locations on time. A lot of people doing online shopping and the shipping industry is just it's overwhelmed right now, but for you delivering your presence that's not gonna be a problem, right? Absolutely not.

But I guarantee you I'm pretty good at those surprises, and I find every year that you're pretty happy with the surprises. I do leave. Oh, I think they'll be very happy. Ryan. We just learned that one of the last places on Earth where the pandemic hadn't hit yet. Antarctica actually had an outbreak, but that that seems to leave. Just the North Pole is the one spot you haven't had any major outbreaks among the elves or anything like that. They're correct. We've had no coronavirus problems at the North Pole, and in fact, you probably heard that, uh, he made a trip up recently. So that I think the least interest in weeks that I won't be coming down with anything else and that vaccine process that you underwent Santa that when perfectly fine, no issues, right? No, it's just a little little lump in my arm, Samos, the flu vaccine of the deep path that I take every year to make sure that when they're sending the Children I don't have looking cop for. Anything else, so no know perfectly well. It's good to hear because we were a little concerned Santa you fit some of the criteria for some of those underlying conditions and co morbidity is that make people worry when it comes to cope in 19, so we're glad that you're okay and able to do everything that you would typically do during the holiday season. Any final message for the kids listening out there as we get closer and closer to the big day? I just want everybody to know that Christmas will be coming and Santa will be delivering presents and not for them to worry about this funny of other things that they're anxious about.

Leave Out Porridge for Belligerent Elves on Christmas Eve

"More trip to europe before christmas to explore some interesting traditions. This time in denmark as kids in america may be getting ready to leave out cookies for santa on friday and don't worry after his scientifically dubious assertions about old saint nick having magical immunity to covid nineteen. Dr fauci has since clarified that. He took a trip to the north pole to vaccinate santa claus himself. Anyways wall here in the us. It's cookies for santa. in denmark. Children leave out porridge for mischievous lives as bribe to make sure they behave the elves. Not the kids. The idea of needing to keep these elms or nisa. Happy goes back to at least the middle ages when farmers explained various bad luck and the hardships of a long winter on the nisa farm. If you kept the nissan happy your livestock would survive the winter in all else would go. Well if you disrespected or upset the nida you may find horrors in the morning like your cow. Having dropped dead to stay on your nieces good side families began offering him a bowl of porridge. On christmas eve. Poor inge was a common staple at the time but the one for the nissan would be special made of rice instead of oats or barley boiled in milk and topped with butter. atlas obscure shares. One account of someone not leaving out the proper offering quote in one story a milkmaid designed to play a trick on her farms. Nissa hiding the butter beneath the porridge. Seen his offering on garnished the niece of flies into a rage and kills the families. Cow finishes his meal and realizes his mistake. He solves the problem by stealing a neighbor's cow and delivering it to his family's farm and quotes. So you really didn't want to get on their bad side. There are many artworks depicting the nisa as almost demonic looking elves throughout the fifteen and sixteen hundreds but by the century they had started taking on more of a happy christmas elf. Kind of look quoting again. A child sized bearded man and appointee red cap traditional garb for farmhands and quotes and met martin anderson curator at the national museum of denmark. Chalks this change up to industrialization and urbanization saying that quote. The nisa was away for rural farmers to explain seemingly random events like illnesses among livestock. They had these thoughts because they couldn't explain bacteria or things like that. She says as people gained a better understanding of agricultural science denisa didn't need to serve the role of scary scapegoats anymore and quotes nowadays. The nsa or even more jolly and innocence. They may still play pranks like stealing. One sock or families may nominate someone to play the role of the nsa and play small pranks on other family members throughout the month of december. But you no longer have to worry about your house's nisha killing you war your animals but people still leave the sweet porridge out for him on christmas eve although now they usually enjoy some of it themselves as well and i will say that. There are other similar kinds of nieces folklore and traditions throughout the other nations in scandinavia in some places. He's called the toyota.

Ecommerce Surge Could Cause Holiday Blues

"We made it to another friday. France tisza holiday season like no other. The pandemic has many shoppers avoiding stores and opting to fill their holiday shopping lists online. That's led to unprecedented volume for the shipping companies. That deliver those goods to your door. An estimated three billion packages will travel on planes trains trucks and vans during the twenty twenty holiday season. And that's not even counting any sleighs. That's nearly a billion more packages in last year and it's also about seven million more packages a day than the current systems capacity of new york. Times report says in fact the strain on the system is so great. ups cried. Uncle get slapped volume limits on some of the nation's biggest retailers. The big brown fleet told drivers on cyber monday to halt pickups at six retailers including l. bean hot topic new egg and macy's the wall street journal reported quote no exceptions the message reportedly said the restrictions will remain in place throughout the holiday season but ups said in a statement that it will work with its largest retail customers to redirect shipping capacity as it becomes available cnn reported that the carriers restrictions will help ensure it can meet its customers needs including small and mid sized businesses that have suffered during the covid nineteen pandemic. Some ups drivers said they hadn't seen shipping limits before but the limits aren't really new in may fedex place limits on roughly two dozen retailers affecting how much they could ship from certain locations. The move was meant to prevent the company from being overwhelmed during the early days of the pandemic online. Orders were surging a fedex. Spokesperson told the wall street journal that the limits were similar to those imposed around the holidays. No word on whether fedex is placing similar restrictions on its customers this holiday season both fedex and ups of hired tens of thousands of employees to increase capacity this year but staffing for the surge isn't the only challenge ahead. Both carriers are also dealing with a cargo van shortage as the pandemic spike demand for deliveries and all manner of delivery vehicles plant shutdown due to corona virus restrictions that created a limit on supply bloomberg reports both couriers rely on independent contractors to supplement their capacity. Many of these drivers rent the vans they use to deliver. Fedex is paying its couriers a stipend to help cover the spike in van rental costs. Things aren't much better up. In the air. Units that represent fedex and ups pilots say covid nineteen infection. Rates are rising among cargo flyers. The airline pilots association reps about five thousand fedex. Pilots representative said members are quote strained. Like never before according to a memo reported by the washington. Post of course. Both companies face unrelenting pressure from amazon which has amassed its own in house shipping operation in a pre holiday shopping spree. Amazon lisa dozen cargo jets bringing its total to more than eighty. It also added more than two hundred package facilities this year so far according to the washington post as shipping companies work to overcome their literal logistical nightmare. This holiday season. There are two big lessons to take away. I if you want your gift to get where it needs to be on time you better ship it soon and just maybe that red suited guy from the north pole deserves a little more respect for getting it all done one night

Solar Orbiter Snaps Closest Pictures Ever of the Sun – Reveals New “Campfires” Phenomena

"With summer here. Most of the news about our home star. The sun most likely will involve sunscreen right And that's something we should all be paying attention to. But scientists are also paying close attention to the surface of the sun, because despite it being so ever present, we still have a lot to learn about the sun. And they have just announced that the solar orbiter a satellite orbiting the sun has just sent back Some photos of surprising events on the sun's surface. Here to talk to us about these new images is Aneke to Groove instrument operation scientists for these solar orbiter she's based in Madrid, Spain, and joins us today. By Skype. Welcome to science Friday. No, I believe that these are the closest direct images of the sun's surface. Is that right? That's correcting the There has never being cameras actually observing the sum from that close, So we have had satellites going closer, but never with images never with telescopes. So tell us this being a radio program when you looked at those images. What air So what was that surprising thing you saw on the surface of the sun? Well, so first. We were really excited to see these first images because these are really the very first day that we got from the satellite. S so it's even just test images still, but we could already see new features. So about what we saw, Mamie was in the B imager. So that is a telescope that is looking at the Somme in extreme ultraviolet light. You cannot see that from worth because the atmosphere is blocking it. But we can see it from space. And so there you see part of the atmosphere that some the solar Corona and that atmosphere is currently very quiet. There's not that much activity on the sun. But now it turned out when we're resuming in that we see very little eruptions, which are much, much smaller than the ones we can usually see. And so this was quite a surprise because we have never seen these features before. And they were called campfires. If I'm reading this correctly, yes, because indeed they looked like this little flashes or flames off off light on DH. Actually, they they look like the many, many brothers ofthe solar flares and solar flares are much bigger eruptions off. Off radiation from the sun, and sometimes they also cause clouds ofthe solar plus muscle solar material That leaves the sun and so this thing to be And micro thin air. So to state so very small eruptions. That's kinda interesting. Do we know anything about Thies? Small eruptions? Ah, and how do we study these further? Well, so that's one of the strength ofthe solar orbiter that he does not only have these camera either has many different telescopes in total six, which will all observe the son of different wavelengths, so you see slightly different temperatures on the sun and slightly different lives. So the next bit will be to analyze these new features. In all those different types of light tto find out what exactly is happen and then we also have sensors which are measuring the environment on the spacecraft. And they can see what's actually coming out of the sun. So the effects ofthe these little activity on the environment of the sun and later also on Earth. So tell me, though, What mysteries you are most interested in and finding out more. About what? What keeps you up at night? Well, One thing that we are really excited about is that Salaam better will also look at the solar poles. So the North Pole and this house full of the sun, and we have never ever seen this before. We also don't know whether there's any activity going on there or how to some structure at these north and South pole, and this is important to wonder. Somehow, all these activity hurts. Because the sun has an activity cycles. It's not always as active. It has times several years where it's quite quiet, which is now the period we are in now and then we expect in two or three years from now there will be more solar activity. There will be some what we call solar storms. So this is the time when the sun is very exit, and then it will go back to a quieter stage. And we don't really honest that how that works, and we think that one of the keys Lie with the solar poles. So that's the part I'm most excited about. You know, I never thought about the sun having polls. I know that the Earth has polls. What creates the poles on the sun? Also, when I talk about poles, I talk mainly about the magnetic poles. So the son has a magnetic field while the earth magnetic things one me the North Pole and assess full But on the sonnets are much more complicated because there's magnetic field gets completely tangled. And this is actually what causes the activity and what causes this cycle in food.

Black Explorers

"On the list of history's great explorers too often, the names of black men and women have gone missing. Yet weather, striking out on their own or accompanying others. Black explorers and left their mark on land and sea. In even in space. In Fifteen, twenty eight. And African named Esteban was brought to Florida as a slave by Spanish conquistadors. When their expedition fail. The survivors explored the American southwest on foot for almost a decade. Esteban travel well over fifteen thousand miles. He saw Moore of the continent than almost any other people before. Listen incompetent. About four centuries later. Another African American explore. Would be one of the first Westerners to reach the far end of planet earth. Matthew Henson spent most of his adolescence at sea learning how to be a sailor. He was also quite interested in exploration, and found himself connected to Admiral Perry. Who is interested in finding North Pole? Hinson travels with him and they've made to the North Pole. Hinson had incredible skills and was recognized for those skills far later than Perry was. In the twentieth century black. Pioneers boldly explored even more daunting frontiers. In the nineteen eighties, the space program was very popular with the American people, and it became clear that there were no African Americans in the astronaut corps, so there was a push to recruit African Americans and in Nineteen, ninety-three guy in blue for became the first. African American to go into space. The second was Ronald McNair. Flew as a mission specialist in nineteen eighty-four. McNair even played his saxophone onboard. Sadly He died tragically two years later when the Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. In Nineteen ninety-two another African American astronaut made history. It'll be making her first trip in space today and she's ready to fly. Mae Jemison spent more than a week orbiting Earth becoming the first African American woman in space. The Astronaut Corps something that Swiss considered quite a leap. These three African Americans were accomplished scientists and engineers they had passed through quite a rigorous set of assessments to become the first of their race to go into a place where your skills your intelligence, your courage and your commitment were all that mattered not erase. Contrary to what most of US learned in school? Not all great explorers were white men. These bowl pioneers were only a few of the African. Americans who overcame unimaginable odds and push forward. The boundaries of what is possible for black people.

How Does Saturn Work?

How Does Saturn Work?

"The Planet Saturn takes its name from a Roman God of agriculture and of all the planets revolve around our sun. It's cultivated if you will the greatest ring system by far shining rings filled with ice dust and rock orbit its equator. The whitest one called the phoebe ring has an outer edge. That's millions of miles away from Saturn itself. For comparison the average distance between Earth and our moon is a paltry two hundred thirty nine thousand miles or three hundred eighty four thousand kilometers once again. Astronomy PUTS THE HUMAN EGO IN CHECK. Saturn's rings get all the attention but we shouldn't ignore its other attributes the sixth planet in our solar system. It's also the biggest after Jupiter. Those two are in a league of their own. If you mushed every planet from Mercury to Neptune together Saturn and Jupiter would account for over ninety percent of the cumulative mass of that planetary mass but despite its immense size Saturn is the least dense planet in the sun's orbit and the spherical to. We'll need to look at. Its physical makeup to understand why research published in two thousand nineteen showed that a day on Saturday and lasts just ten hours thirty three minutes and thirty eight seconds. It's spin rate helps explain one of the ring. World's stranger qualities is he. Saturn is ten percent wider than it is tall. A difference of over seven thousand miles or nearly twelve thousand kilometers. Astronomers call that kind of disparity an equatorial bulge every planet in the solar system has one but Saturn's is the most extreme saturn rotates around its axis at a very high speed. Hence the brevity stays. And here's where density comes into play like. Jupiter Saturn is a gas giant such worlds predominantly consists of hydrogen and helium and whereas Earth is solid on. The outside gas. Giants are not they may however have hard intercourse now. Saturn is downright huge in terms of volume. Some seven hundred sixty four earth sized objects could fit inside of it and the planet is ninety five times as massive as our home world and yet relative to its size. Earth is eight times more dense. In fact water yes. Plain water is denser them Saturn although that doesn't mean the planet would float. It's not cohesive enough so thanks to its low. Low density zippy rotational. Speed Saturn's been deformed into a oblong world that looks kind of squished in profile Jupiter's southern hemisphere famously has an ongoing storm called the great. Red Spot Saturn's answer to. This is the great white spots which are periodic tempests that arise every twenty thirty Earth Years I detected in eighteen seventy six. These weather events are colossal scale ness as Cassini spacecraft spent thirteen productive years hovering around Saturn on December fifth of two thousand ten. It witnessed the most recent iteration of the great white spot phenomenon. The storm was about eight hundred miles by sixteen hundred miles long when it first began. That's about thirteen hundred twenty five hundred kilometers but over the next six months. The spot expanded Longitudinal early until it had looped itself around the planet in a gigantic circle. Some researchers think the great white spots might be part of a cycle that sees the outer layer Saturn's atmosphere slowly lose heat allowing the warm air from lower levels to burst upward. Meanwhile Saturn's North Pole. There's a cloud pattern shaped like giant hexagon. This pleasantly symmetrical jet stream spins counterclockwise measures about twenty thousand miles or thirty two thousand kilometers across and includes a hurricane. That's been swirling right over the poll ever since it was discovered back in Nineteen eighty-eight. Of course it's not the hexagon earned Saturday. A place on. Chucky festers T. shirt you know from rugrats anyway. The gas giant is most famous for the spectacular ring system encircling it a planetary rings aren't rare per se Jupiter Uranus and Neptune. Have the well yet. In terms of sheer scale network around Saturn is totally unrivaled. Most of the primary rings come with letter names. The closest one to Saturn is called the D ring which has an inner radius of about forty two thousand miles or sixty seven thousand kilometers a lot closer than our moon. It's surrounded by these C B A F G and earrings in that order by the way. The rings aren't arranged Alphabetically. Because the naming system reflects the dates of their discovery Abmc recited before the rest when measured from its outside edge. The earring showcases an impressive. Three hundred thousand mile radius or four hundred and eighty thousand kilometers. Or at least that looks impressive until you get to know the big bad fearing that. We mentioned earlier. I spotted in two thousand nine. This one was named after one of Saturn's moons untold trillions of ice rock dust particles. Make up these rings. Some bits are the size of a sugar grain. Others could probably Dwarf Your House in any case. The ring material is stretched. Remarkably thin Saturn's rings may be as thick as two miles or kilometers wide. Found just thirty two feet or ten meters wide so proportionately. The gas giants iconic rings thinner than a typical sheet of writing paper as noted by Astronomer. Phil plait whereas Saturn itself is probably around four point five billion years old. The age of its rings isn't as clear. Some scientists think that they were formed ten million to a hundred million years ago when an icy comet or some ice covered moons came too close to the planet. The visitor or visitors would have met a grisly end. Getting ripped to pieces by Saturn's gravity as those fragments collided they grew smaller and multiplied giving rise to the skinny but brilliant system. We all know today on the other. Hand a twenty. Nineteen paper argued that the rings might have originated at an earlier stage in the history of our solar system. We'll have to see how the debate unfolds as new evidence arises. There's lots about this planet that we're still learning in October of two thousand. Nineteen the international astronomical. Union heralded the discovery of twenty newfound moons orbiting the gas giant with these bodies added to the mix. There are now eighty two verified. Saturn moons altogether no other planet in the solar system has that many natural satellites not even mighty Jupiter. You can find Saturn's moons in around and beyond the ring system before Cassini was retired in two thousand seventeen it revealed that some of them gather clumps of ice and dust. From the Rings Saturn's Moon Titan is especially well-named it's our solar system second-biggest moon overall and it's dotted with seas lakes and rivers of liquid methane and pain. There's only one other body within the Sun's orbit that has standing pools of liquid that we know about. And here's a hint. You're sitting on it right now. Tighten is also noteworthy for having an atmosphere and it's theorized that there could be ice volcanoes that spew water instead of lava like Earth Saturn gets auroras at its poles. They're invisible to the unaided human eye. But the Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope have captured footage of them using infrared and ultraviolet

Askov Finlayson Creates Climate Positive Outerwear

"Hey Eric welcome to good together. We're excited to have you. Thanks Laura Beer. Super excited to Have you with US Eric. I Know Laura I told me about your company and I saw the park I was like Yes yes lizard into tomorrow. Wonderful inscription be with you. Thank you yeah. We're we're very excited to talk all things. Climate positive outerwear today. And I think you know for for Liza and hi this is a really and I mean I think this is GonNa be an interesting episode for anyone because we all need a jacket for the winter But I think there's been a lot of chatter recently about out You know innovations textiles innovations from companies. That are be cores that are really interested in providing more climate. I'm at positive solutions. I'm Eric I wonder if you could just introduce yourself and give us a little bit of information about your company. Sure was you said we're we're or a climate positive outdoor apparel company. We specialize in winter. Parkas were based here in Minneapolis Minnesota. Where where the need for good? Winter Outerwear is is a very real thing And we try to offer. In addition to our climate positive model with with the environment. Mind we also try to offer offer a really great value by bypassing the retail markup offering our products directly to consumers through ECOMMERCE and we have a flagship store herein when you're in our neighborhood of Minneapolis so We are awesome. I was very impressed with a mission statement. I was just reading last night Can you tell me a bit more about positive. By I think you are guys offset carbon emissions. There is a lot of layers of like doing good with your business model. Yeah we try to keep it pretty simple. I mean this was an idea that that evolved over the past few years We started did making our own products in twenty thirteen and as we started to experience success especially around a products that were of this place which we like to call all the north of the United States We wanted to think about how we could harness that momentum for good and so we began a program that we called in two thousand fifteen keeps the north cold and we began a giving program. We had a nonprofit partner. We felt really good about that and we were definitely having a positive impact but we really wanted to challenge ourselves to think about. Where are we actually keeping the cold on a on a net basis if you really did the math and it it causes to do a pretty thorough south audit and we took the intention of giving program in the beginning And this idea of north cold relief which we saw as a promise. We're making our customers and we wanted to really be able to back thaddeus and show our math in a in a transparent way and hold ourselves accountable to our customers and also to the planet and so what you know with the program evolved into is is every year doing a carbon footprint self audit doing everything we can to reduce our negative impacts through our our operations as as a business and then within qualifying that impact and turning it into one hundred ten percent net positive Financial commitment to organizations Asians are leaving their leading solutions to the climate crisis. So it's really at its at. Its most simple. It's a self imposed carbon tax and it's a way that we can you Hold ourselves accountable and and be able to stand behind the promise to our customers that were actually contributing on a net basis to the solution rather than being part of the problem. Okay and I had a question so what what would you say. Is the number one offender in your business right now as it relates to carbon emissions. Like where have you guys tried. Tried to focus. I mean I know it. Sounds like there's quite a few areas but what sleep. Maybe the top area. Well you know I'll give you a couple of examples of of what we've done one was just in our in our operations here or in Minneapolis. We've switched to one hundred percent sustainable power for all of our our offices in our operations here is a business at our headquarters now comes from wind energy actually all produced you're Minnesota And then the other big area of focus has been our supply chain and especially materials serials. We looked at some of the products. We were already making. And how could we could. We switch over the most Low Impact of materials hospitals. We switched some products to recycle materials. That previously hadn't been been made from like a virgin acrylic. Now is made from one hundred percent recycled material if you look at our our winter north hats but then when we introduce this parker this past year a chance to really start from scratch on a new product and and how could we embed all of the best decisions with climate impact in mind into the materials manufacturing the partners we were working with. And so if you look at the park where we make. It's one hundred percent recycled outer material. It's one hundred percent blue signed certified lining which will become one hundred percent recycled next year. We found the the fabric to be able to achieve that. And then the thing. I'm probably most proud of was material. Really innovation that we were able to achieve Throw partnership with three M which is a company base-year in Minnesota and it's the first time ever that they've offered one hundred percent recycled featherless down insulation And so you know to to have have a real material. Innovation in in terms of sustainability in one hundred percent recycled in our first year was an accomplishment. We were pretty proud of yeah. Yeah that's amazing and I. I didn't know that three M was based out there so that that's good to know and I know in the past. They've been major innovators in various. Sort of No chemical engineering and things like that But I one of the things that you mentioned that I want to kind of dive into is talking about materials specifically that make up the the Parka Arca and one question that we get often on brightly is around you know the usage of animal based materials so oftentimes for Parkas arcus this equates to feather feathers being used down and so I wondered if you could speak a little bit too Why you guys chose to not go the feather row? How on maybe what your point views on that? Yes so you know. It's there's sort of two parts. There's one there is I think the ethical question which you've raised which you know I it relates to with the installation choice. Do you use you know feather down inflation versus a federalist we've chosen to go with there's also a number of companies that use for Roths We also chosen not to use for our materials. That very much isn't ethical choice for us and I would say on the down. It's a combination of the two. You know there's there's the ethical will impact of how those feathers are sourced But also for us it was really just actually a performance questions when we began our research on this product. We went to the person who I know that knows more about Winter Outerwear and surviving and thriving in harsh winter conditions His name is will stegar. He's a legendary Arctic and Antarctic explorer. A based here in Minnesota someone. I've known many years he led the first confirmed dogs. That expedition to the North Pole. The first crossing of Antarctica so just really in the all time top echelons of exploration and and so we went up to his homestead in in northern Minnesota and went through his expedition archives and went through all of his gear and he'd actually always used Three M synthetic attic insulation in his archive of back. Then of course it wasn't available. One hundred percent recycled that's new to us this year but he always chosen not to go down as we asked him why that was and he felt that the you know the risk of down especially when you're in those type of conditions environments is that as soon as it gets wet it loses its loft and it it it stops being as warm and so for him. It was very much just a performance question that he said Synthetic inflation was every bit as is warm and actually was more versatile and served his needs better. So that's really where we went down the path of making that choice based on just research much of what performs the best

"I'm John cer-? Bob Zimmerman keeps the website behind the black from the surface of the planet earth. We're headed to the surface of the planet Mars. The probe is called insight and there's been trouble, but perhaps Bob as what is insight and hasn't been fixed. Insight was the land of that NASA put on Mawes in the fall, it has two basic instruments, and both with designed to look at the interior of the Mosher planet, one was the size Mamata, which they had installed and has been taking readings now for the last three months. That's great. The other was a probe that they had a drill called the mole that they were going to drill that heat sensitive down fifteen feet or so, so it could get the internal temperature of Moses globe. Get a sense of what the interior of MAs is like, well, they started to drill. They got about I think about a foot down and the drill wouldn't work anymore would work. But. It wouldn't gain any ground. They couldn't go anymore. They didn't know exactly what it was. They've been trying all kinds of things for the last two months. Well, they've now come up with a decision. They wanna get look at the drill. And this is interesting, the structure that the drill a ham really hammer drill. It's like a pounding Hamma, the structure that it's in the camera, that's an insight, Tennessee, the drill because of the structure. And so they want to use the robot on the insight to lift that structure up without disturbing the drill itself, the hammer drill so they can look at it. See what the issue is. They also think that possibly the soil is very different than expected here, and that would be a component in preventing it from going on the ground technical, two questions. He had this is a German made trill. By the way, one, what if they build such the camera can't take a picture of it? That's really questionable in my mind that really questionable. And the second question is. The issue the slow, they say the soil have enough friction to help the drill stay, and, you know, you're banging nail in if the if the nail doesn't grip the would it's gonna pop up it won't go down. You need to have the material around the drill hole place. So each time not down at games, and they're saying that doesn't have enough. But my question then is they didn't do enough. There's something fishy about all I wonder about the design either way. Let's hope it works. John picking off to the Martian, North Pole. There's a really cool graphic at on behind the black, we're looking at the fact that the Martian, North Pole is seasonal. Bob is the Marsh North Pole is attractive for colony as say the south pole of the moon. No, no, no. I would not put a colony on the polls of the MAs at all the reason we're focused on the poles of the moon is the only places you can see water and the environment of the environment is not much different than all places on the moon. But on the polls, you have the opportunity to get not only water, but a lot of solar energy. So that's why that advantageous on the moon. But no, the, the polls on not a place to build, but they might be a place do significant amount of mining, for resources that use extra colonies elsewhere on the planet, and that's to extend the focus of the pulse. What I did on behind the blacks today is that put spotted some interesting pictures in the MAs off at all. Live from the North Pole. And so, I did some research and I talked to one of the scientists can't candies Hansen, who is requesting these photos. And so did a focus on the motion, North Pole and what is going on? Right. This minute is that the North Pole of Mawes is leaving winter, and it's now entering spring and during the winter on the North Pole of Mawes and on the south pole of Mawes, you get a cap.

"Fatima was once on a voyage on the Atlantic Ocean to new Lampeter when his ship was blown off course. And he found himself in a strange place that was shrouded in folks, not knowing where they were aware only that he and his sailors were lost. He and his crew abandoned the ship. In a small boat. They moved across the mysterious waters. After a time. They reached the middle of these waters when they saw many white birds. They reached land only after their provisions were almost exhausted. They had landed at the foot of all Jubal Lama the gleaming mountain, but they were told by the Berber inhabitants of the area that they should not approach it. They did not know why this was but obediently turned to the north of it avoiding the place. As they moved along the shore, they met someone who asked them how it is. And now inquisitive about the mountain. They asked about the warning that they had received about old Jubal Alana. The people told them that it contained a mass of venomous serpents that always seemed to strangers to be gleaming objects made of beautifully colored stone such strangers were there by deceived into drawing near and when they did the snakes would kill them. Above the myth of the mountain eligible Allama from a dictionary of African mythology by herald showed a pretty frightening description. But Michael there are other ancient readings of the North Pole aren't there which painted something? Rather more alluring I sort of paradise on earth northern Eden. That's right. They have in common that they recognized at the North Pole is sacred in some way and the Hindu religion. For example. Traditionally has viewed mount may rue as being similarly a mountain at the North Pole, and what these share in common is at the mountain is actually sacred because it's able to join the earth with the heavens. The idea of the North Pole is a gateway to a mythical world perhaps deep inside the earth was something that was explored in an early book published in sixteen sixty six by British duchess named Margaret cavern dish. The book was called the description of the new. World cooled the blazing world. And it describes how female heroine is kidnapped and taken on a ship to the North Pole. Michael you see her book is one of the first and more significant pieces of polarizing, right? Why why does this book stand out here? I do here is a prominent noblewoman Kavindele, she's asserting the North Pole is being a female world. So this in a sense is a almost like a precursor to the work of Mary, Shelley, Mary, Shelley, Hurok Frankenstein. Monster ends up raving about in the Arctic doesn't it say until we did this program. I never really thought of that as being particularly significant. And I think I think it is because for Margaret Cavendish as for Mary Shelley the North Pole in is a place into which the protagonists are blown off course or of shipwrecked. So the key though is that they represent something beyond the poll in each case. There is either a place or a morality that goes beyond. So the relationship is one of dialogue at the North Pole. It's a place that's always being negotiated. And that is what gives it the character that it has for centuries that it is a place of understanding where we begin to see our own places human beings. So this is fascinating this early piece because it's bad as you were saying feminine North Pole. But it also makes me think how today in the popular imagination. In popular fiction. The North Pole is still right up there the importance of Father, Christmas, and Santa Claus. But if you just think about modern fiction, the Phillip Pullman trilogy his dark materials, this is all about getting to the North Pole, isn't it? Yes. I think one of the things that's very striking about the most powers that it's attracted both a kind of utopian dystopia in literature, art and other forms of representation. And so just as Michael's talked about the North Pole being feminized. You also get representations of the North Pole as a kind of ice Queen. And so it's very familiar trope. Both in the article, the Antarctic to feminizing these spaces, and that often then provides a kind of context or perhaps a pretext for these very very manly explorers to lift the veil of the Arctic or to push ever further northwards towards this magical ultimate space we've strayed into the world admits and fiction, but let's get back to the history of expeditions to the Arctic north indigenous communities like the shook she and other related northern communities across Russia's northern Arctic regions, they've always use the Arctic as a hunting ground and in the seventeen hundreds they were joined by Europeans and Americans at first they were going north on whaling ships, lucrative ventures. Sometimes used to fund these trips to the Arctic region, but then in the nineteenth century, there was a sort of Arctic fever for exploration that developed in Europe and the United States, partly drew. In by design, not just to reach the North Pole. But also to uncover the fabled northwest passage, which it was hoped would allow shipping to sail from the North Atlantic to the Pacific cows, tell us about a couple of the most famous explorers at this time, probably the most famous British expedition was the Franklin expedition the eighteen forties. This is the John Franklin. John Franklin ships Tara, and the Erebus get infamously stuck and then it's really a very sorry indeed solder tale of survival impossible cannibalism. But ultimately, fortunately, the party doesn't make it. And then what it a malicious in the aftermath of their disappearance is an extraordinary best of exploratory and expeditionary activity in the hope that the party may indeed be recovered that proves not to be the case. And then if you will towards the end of the nineteenth century. We have famous Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen what you have in short is a nineteenth century dominated by exploration and commercial intrigue. And importantly, people also become household names. And so when exhibitions are held these are immensely popular. And I think it's it's easy to forget that actually only one hundred and fifty years ago, there was still enormous uncertainty about what the North Pole what the central Arctic Ocean may yet have to offer. And if you compare those nineteenth and twentieth century expeditions with now well overseas about human, endurance. But it was it will say about the technology the kit. Yes. He gets utterly bizarre. And you get into the beginning of the twentieth century because you have American newspaper moguls and baking soda, magnets. Designing these hot air balloons and various contraptions that they think are going to get them to the North Pole. And then you've got Russian expeditions and Italian expeditions living on tiny islands in the article desperate to be the first. So it really does turn into a bit of a farce. But let's not forget the first undisputed on foot expedition to reach the North Pole didn't happen until nineteen sixty nine, but the biggest technological advantage. We have now satellite navigation, satellite communication, and that's the big difference. The actual materials that we use. And the way that we get there in the techniques and the methods actually haven't changed very much. That's nonsense. And the early explorers the one thousand nine hundred could probably walk into might enter my expedition and recognize is what we're doing. And what we're using it wouldn't be too. I'm familiar, it's typical of the elusive nature the North Pole. And even the question of which explorer got their first is still uncertain. Michael Hughes the fast person to claim that they made it to the North Pole. Probably would be Robert Peary. Surely, there must have been people before that who was cook quite famously claimed that he so he was periods. Great rival as right? They were. Are we talking about eight nine? So you've got this kind of extrordinary period when these two men with rather large egos loggerheads with on another claiming that they got their first. And so it's a really great example of fake news. Here you have Cookham Pirie accusing one another repeatedly in their supporters of fake news. So for example, photographic evidence. Taken by each expedition in terms of look, this is us at the North Pole is accused by the other side of being doctored and faked and so everybody involved in this feud is calling into question both visual as well. As textual evidence. Dr is copy trusted photos can't be trusted. Lies are circulating throughout public. Culture. Sorry. Let's be clear. This is still an argument that hasn't been fully settled. So if you go to the explorers club, New York, for example, which is the home of American exploration, perhaps they still display one of periods. Sledges and call him the first man to set foot at the North Pole. Somebody tried to recreate this journey and said, actually, they could have done it. There's being fairness expeditions and books and investigations say this is still a hot topic, and there's still room for people to go out there and prove conclusively one way or another. It's certainly not an argument. That's over one thing that doesn't get talked about quite much is the story of the enumerate another indigenous guides on these journeys and what their involvement was in reaching the pole and how they were treated by these explorers. Michael. Well, that's right. That's a very profound importance for the communities up an Italian the north of Greenland, partly because they hosted Perry and other sometimes for many. Winters at a time. So there was a cost to these communities for providing hundreds of dogs to make the journeys and the logistics there a bit sacrifices. So there's a very interesting kind of complex historical power-play going on now Perry and cook, you know, they subscribe to very strong imperial theories. They thought that the North Pole meant this was where the races and peoples of the world met, and yet they understood that they would achieve this only with the help of indigenous peoples. Well, there'd be many expeditions to the North Pole since then and still are today and Felicity in 2018, you let a group of ten women on an expedition to the North Pole. Tell us why it was so special well half of the women were from Arabic nations around the Gulf states and the other half were from various countries across Europe. And. I think it was a way of demonstrating that the Arctic and the North Pole isn't the concern of just one particular geographical region anymore. But it's also quite special because time is running out for its petitions to the North Pole. Arguably is widely believed that the last full distance ski expedition to the North Pole that's one that goes from the coast of the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole happened in two thousand fourteen and people believe that will probably prove to be the law. So now because say much the is now say hazardous and so now people saying they're chasing loss not first anymore. And I think that gives this whole subject and immediacy that perhaps we don't get in discussions around climate change, particularly in the Arctic. This is happening. Now, this is not theoretical in a few decades. And on that note, let's pause for a moment. Because in part to we're going to look in greater depth the effects of climate change on the North Pole and consider how it may bring tougher living conditions for some but possibly new opportunities. Others also the geopolitical argument over which nation could have the right to claim the North Pole as their territory stay with us. We'll be back after this short break.

That's just gonna make your head pop off. So either way I'm dead. Yes. Yes. Okay. I'm going gonna die. I want to do it the funniest way. Right. So let's talk about this polish Lewis talk about the polar shift. Okay. Are you following this? No, I've only heard you talking about. Okay. So the polar shifts is something I followed for about twenty years and just just lightly, and I have absolutely no idea. What any of it means? Okay. I know what it could mean. I know what theories are from the past. But I I'm not a, you know, I'm not a sky is falling on this one. I just find it fascinating. So the polls the north south pole. It's not fixed and it drifts every year. Okay. And it drifts because we have a iron core. And then a molten core around that that iron core. Well, that's kind of like, you know, taking copper wire and wrapping it around. Iron and then taking a magnet. I mean is creating energy magnetic force. So you get your polls north and south because because the world is is molten just beneath the surface, it can shift k and it can it can move and it can make the polar magnetic field move. The magnetic field generally stays in the same kind of area. It has you know in the past few hundred years been as North Pole has been as low as Ohio believe it or not. But it's been a long time, and it takes centuries to move, blah, blah, blah. Well, the polar shift is moving rapidly. In fact, it's now last year it moved fifty five kilometers. It's now I think in Siberia the North Pole. If you're standing on the North Pole. You're actually south of the magnetic pole K because the magnetic pole that rewrite south everything everything. Yeah. So you're south if you're standing at the the, you know, where the pole is, you know, the red white striped one, right? If you're at your at Santa's village, right, right? You are actually at the at the North Pole at that moment because of the magnetic changes correct now the problem is is that our GPS is run with magnetic north. So the further it can it. It's built to be able to withstand stuff, but they had to go in and have an emergency. Reset this last year because it's moving so fast. I mean, nobody's I don't think anybody's seen it move fifty five kilometers before. So it's moving so fast and doesn't show any sign of slowing down. Well, our GPS had to be reset because otherwise we'd all be driving in the Pacific Ocean at some point. Because it's it's all off. I find that fascinating. Now, here's the part that they think is this is. These are just theories, they think that this has happened before that the polls got so far out of whack that. They that north and south actually was east and west, okay? So north and south would be up and down on a map and east and west would be no east and west would be up and down in north and south would be left and right on a map zarre bizarre. And they think that because everything is sitting on this molten core that at some point. And this may have been why the the continents broke up its some point the thing got so far out of whack that it actually the mantle slid on that molten core. And so what was at the equator was now north and south which would explain why you have like a fossilized. Tropical.

They were Santa's workshop and one Christmas while Santa is delivering presence at an orphanage a baby crawls into a sack of toys, and he accident takes the baby with him to the North Pole the baby remained silent for the entirety of the rest of the trip. Then other me. One of the elves adopts the baby his name is Papa elf hot. What does like, hi? My name's daddy. No, I'm single. I have no children. Like that. And the baby gets named buddy.

Do you do to elves get like inoculation against rabies like the ones that you give to your cats dollars? He also survives entirely on sugar. How is he not dead? What do the elves know that we don't about health and longevity? Maybe that's why they keep the whole thing a secret because they're afraid that they're going to like get taken over for their secrets. Right. Well, at one point he says that his daddy L is like four hundred it took him four hundred ninety years to figure out how to make like so. Yeah, they've got like the elixir of life up there.

And I kinda just laughed at him. Like, I've no then I ended up reading the book and my husband came back two weeks later, and I had a whole new financial plan for. It was on. Don't leave. This woman alone. When though internet she's dangerous. Read any book. I was. Yeah. It was a definitely a shock. That's great fabulous. Well done you guys very well done. So David when you came home, and she was all wired up. You don't have much choice, but to jump in just said, yes, ma'am. And that's. It's been successful. So far following orders. There you go. Good military. We'll try and you do that. That's good. Very fun. Well, congratulations, you guys. So what is the key to getting out of debt? This is an impressive amount of debt you reduced for for me. I think big thing was communication and just dedication to that. And just being able to communicate with each other about the frustrations. And you know, everything that we're facing together being able to communicate really got through it. Interesting able to stick to what we talked about together. You have to hold tight because it's a rough ride. Oh, yeah. And I would say for us to because we were in Alaska, we were actually actually the North Pole, right, right? Outside of Fairbanks for us. We were fortunate. There was really not too much temptation to go spend money on a lot of things. But didn't have a lot of stores. We had a WalMart for clothing you head on the that's pretty much to spend our money on. So it was a great place to be at the time. Or really appreciate us. We also credit that our success help us. Learn discipline not having many options to go out and buy things. So now, we just moved to Virginia about two weeks ago. We're down from Alaska where we were able to cash the trip drive down. And now that we have all these temptations again, we don't need them anymore. Wow. Got control of it now. Well, done very very well done who are your biggest cheerleaders, your landlord bet. Oh, yeah. Kevin Kevin Lincoln up there North Pole. Both of our parents and Ricky Carlson, which works for the financial readiness with my wife was one of my co workers, and I would just come to her and tell her about either frustrations or like how this got done when I wasn't listening. Yeah. When. I'd I don't think actually talked to both of us pretty much giving courage -ment a lot of people on courage. Ing us along the way you kinda smiling. Like, okay. Well, we'll see if that works. Yeah. Nother one of my co workers telling her that we're doing Dave Ramsey and support. Her name is the lead or not the point just kind of kinda done, and she would smile and come back to work the next day for back. I did not buy this at the store today because not have the money, and that's what they would want me to do. Another step. I love it done. Well done you guys. We've got a Cup copy of Chris Hogan's book for you, retire inspired, which we will mail to you signed by Chris or also going to send you a copy of his new book in January that comes out every day millionaires because you're going to be one. And that's the next chapter in your story to not only get out of debt, but now to move on.

"And if you're into this, if you had everything that you found or were shown tested, you wouldn't have any money to eat. You know. So I just kind of hung onto it and you hope for a break on some kind of way the algae is different to somebody's has algae in their feet. That's not a good sign with this was under the bed of the nail. I mean, that's how would you get out yonder there? I mean. It fit the description of what he gave. But funny thing about that is that when he was asked where he was from 'cause nobody knew him. He said, I was from the North Pole or the way they took it and they laughed and said, well, ho ho ho. You know, thank you for the gifts, Santa Claus. Yeah, you know so, but it as it turned out, the guy was from a little community in Oklahoma call north Bo. He's telling the truth what you see how quickly quickly. You know, you can miss understand or misinterpret and and the the Bigfoot community, if it's fair to call it that they tend to be more sensitive to being taken in then average person. So they'll dismiss, I ask questions later, and a lot of things just go by the wayside. Sometimes person that comes in and he has something like that. And he and he gets, you know, stiffed they may not ever go bring anything else back ever any anyplace. So you know, it's a. You have to be kind of careful when I suggested that they create a bureau to accept evidence from the public and large during these conferences. Because when people hear that conference is common and they have something they might wanna just bring it with them. And so you have to have somebody that has absolute regimen own behavior how how to accept it without any hurt feelings, right, you know, and then you might you may get something from John q. public. That may surprise you. It's interesting. Tell me more about the the hair, the clump of hair that you showed me where the cop of hair there was a big foot siding and the next day this was found at where that sighting took place, and that's all I can really say about it. You know, you can't see where it was. Yeah, no, no. If some people don't want it to be. No. Okay. I, I it under a microscope. That's where it was became an outstanding thing. You know, you look at and you say, well, maybe maybe not as looks kind of unusual, but you put it under a microscope and what what was going on with those hair. She asked was hard to believe. I mean it it was it clear, translucent shafts. Some were light-colored. Some were Dr. Some were modeled, some were no color just clear, but the ones that were colored still were translucent and the light coming from underneath the microscope would hit some of those hairs and come over here and just do a burst right over here. You know, wouldn't it reached a flow on the shaft like like a fiber optics? And I got really curious after that. And I went back and examined the Patterson fam-. And how was able to find some places in the Patterson fan where she walked right by an older, which just got light color. Bark. And when she got to a certain angle, the tones off of that Alder flooded her back and she became very blonde. And when she made her way across Cup, two or three frames later and cleared the Alder, she went back dark again and that is unusual that that tells me something because in the film you're able to follow the movement to stay with it..
