Gov. Ron DeSantis doesn't want sick cruise ship to dock in Florida

"Florida's governor Ron DeSantis is holding firm he doesn't want a cruise ship where four people died and others are sick to get off in South Florida for treatment so we think it's a mistake to be putting people into southern Florida right now given what we're dealing with so we would like to have medical personnel simply dispatch to that ship in the cruise lines can hopefully arrange for that the ship coming from South America with mostly Americans and Canadians on board made it through the Panama Canal last night it's about three days from Florida so is another ship which took on passengers who did not appear to be infected

S. people living in rural areas too are increasingly threatened a lot of these areas where there's not widespread you'll also find a lot of not widespread testing and the lack of testing early on in this epidemic really hamper the U. S. response we didn't know where it was blowing up the bases and and we didn't have the testing to find out do not head to the beaches do not go hiking stay home those are some of the pleas from officials in California where one of those perfect weekends is ahead the state's forty million people are under a stay at home water but if you can imagine not everyone is obeying it Johns Hopkins University says more than forty seven hundred people have tested positive.

"And we're back when we left off the French were giving up on something and asking for America's help so good practice What's so imagine you're a salesman right so you've got this never again. No I get it. I get it now just in your imagination. You got this canal that you've got off load There is precisely one potential buyer and the goddamn university like the color but they wanted somewhere a little to Nicaragua. This is the job of one. Philip Bureau via all right after the Panama affair blows over in Paris. The course create a new company called the company Nouvel Daylight Bucket Panama or whatever Bhutto Verena is tasked with selling the French interest in that company and returning at least some investment to the three quarters of a million people who lost their shirts over this so he goes to the only potential buyer. Isa's hey you guys want the biggest financial disaster in history. I'll give it to you for one hundred million bucks and the US is like we'll take it for forty million bucks. And then what the fuck is he? He's like have this big money. Bonfire going you guys. WanNa pay me to bring some of your money back. I mean it seems super sure. But they don't actually by the canal up points and they can use. Those pointed does is gonNA use the Canal Anyway. Sir Right the whole presentation to get the golf clubs all right. So America gets the canal for a song. But there's a snag The deal that Dulles upside with the Colombian government didn't give him the right to sell especially not to a foreign government. Maybe you think about this. From Colombia's perspective the canal being controlled by some faraway European country or a company in a faraway. European country is way different as a proposition than it being controlled by the dominant military force in your hemisphere right and they weren't even consulted when the deal was being done between the US and his French company okay. We'll by your disease infested landslide. Mud Pits I got forty million right here Right there at the at the Nan Forte kept Sims in other teams. In order to main did you just one quick question. Yes Shar Shar so you have the right to sell me this property right. I've got an cinnabar. Of course I can't well I just did not know I mean I mean legally I probably should have checked all this but you know I mean dot my is and all is legally. You have saleable rights. That's the question I'm asking that question you're asking after you gave me for the million dollars. Well we I mean we spit in our hands and you're not going to give me back that money are you know. Don't tell my dad all right. So what Columbia was demanding. Here was not at all unreasonable. They wanted to kind of the forty million dollars at the company was getting. The company came in with a lot of big promises before they went bankrupt. The Colombian government and invested in this project themselves foregone tax revenue. Along the way to this bankruptcy they just wanted some level of compensation for that. I mean you gotta give something. The only thing that grows on this land. We gave you as cocaine. What are we supposed to talk to? The president of the United States at the time is one teddy rows of cocaine of resident. He says yes and he doesn't see the Columbia demands as reasonable at all. In fact he sees him as a shakedown. Because he's a buck and racist right like they literally word even asking the US to pay them anything. They were asking a private company a private French company to compensate them for violating a contract. But they were darker skinned than the French people so Roosevelt assumed that they were the bad guys in this story and then with absolutely no help from the US government by the way the fact that US Navy destroyers showed up just in time to block Colombian forces notwithstanding the people of Panama. All on their own rebelled against their Colombian government asking. Yeah and since the US had an official duty to protect the Trans Panamanian railroad under the bid lack jury and since things yeah since things looked like they were about to get violent white by Golly. They had no choice but to land a budget troops. Just an stop both armies before got out of hand. It's depressing how well are. Us foreign policy of middle school fighting seems to work just all the time everywhere. We we just show up. Push people into the middle of a circle and start young and then we drop a fucking Halliburton and Ville on both sides and then we get paid to clean up the bodies to also we own that middle son so that we can teach everyone in history class that the problem with that fight was communism. Yeah that tracks that draft to kids ominous so the Panamanian people rose up in this bloodless coup the US recognizes the rebel government immediately and as their first act a government they appoint Buono for Ria as their ambassador to the United States. The French do that. Show them the Goddamn canal so the US goes you and signed a canal treaty with the guys selling the canal without actual mania present acid hours that we had nothing to do with a Thomas. Edison's that global politics. That's a nice voice recording. Ah got there. Can I see it boom patented patented big great and now stand right there next to you? See Nikola Tesla right there with the red X now. We all know that the story ends with a canal where we look back on this. It seems like the. Us got ridiculously good deal but at the time a lot of people saw it as US buying the biggest financial disaster of all time which is exactly what we did how we lead a revolution in alienated entire continent for one hundred and seventeen goddamn years in counting for the right to buy the biggest financial disaster of all time so obviously the pressure is high to make this work all right so step one and making this canal happen. You GotTa Cure Malaria. Which seems like a huge fucking ask giving it that at like co evolved with the human species but fortunately for the entire effort the disease factor was recently identified as the mosquito and not only that but they actually figured out specifically which breed of mosquito carried it. There's just the one that is an important. You wouldn't WANNA kill the wrong mosquitoes all. Sorry Yeah So. How do you cure malaria? You get all the fucking mosquitoes that means literally going door to door making sure that there's no standing water for the little bastards to breathe in. It means fumigating constantly. It means cutting back big swath of jungle. So that's exactly what they did. I know as much as this is normally thought of as this story of a bunch of people die in a malaria. The efforts against that disease stand out as one of the biggest accomplishments of the entire project. Sure did and over four hundred thousand people each year still die of malaria. Just want to point that out. We figured it out. It just costs too much to save those people okay seasonal. We didn't cure malaria. What we did is we stopped it from spreading to white people so tomato. Fuck you say well actually. Yeah and that's all we did then too right so all. These advances pretty much only affected the white workers the work was segregated and the white workers were given pretty decent places to live especially if they were married and had kids. Black workers. Mostly Caribbean black workers were crammed into overcrowded and under provisions shit holes right so many of them took the option of foregoing company lodging altogether. And they'd stay in a nearby town or just out in the jungle where the malaria eradication efforts hadn't reached of course we don't really have numbers on it but it's worth emphasizing all these great benefits of modernity weren't exactly being doled out Farrell. Okay but employment in the black community was at an all time high. Let's be honest. And this is why we need to avoid big infrastructural change once you got disease under control for the white people. Let's be for the white people. Just gotTA tackle the big engineering problems now. The US got to leapfrog over the biggest hurdle for the French. Because they didn't go into it with these starry eyed hopes for a sea level canal they would be using locks to raise ships up to an artificial lake. A catoon lake and then lower back down on the other side That's all the shit out of the problems. First of all you don't have to dig out as much shit. Secondly you basically drowned the Chaggaris River. Which is the one causing you all the trouble the Andrea Yates method. Wow only Andrea. Yates look it up. So Google I don't know Google that third and maybe most important. Apparently tides on the Pacific side are way higher than on the Atlantic. And it's really hard to account for that with a sea level canal like. What was the French plan for that? Just like Dutch kid. That they were GonNa have sticker was all that being said. There are still plenty of engineering obstacles to overcome and there weren't a hell of a lot of people clamoring to take this job. Yeah I mean you go down in history. If you did but given the past performances it would probably be is another miserable failure. The US officially took over in May of nineteen o four under the direction of the student named John. Finley walls resigns after about a month the next to take the job was John Frank Stevens. He was a self educated engineer with a long background in railroad construction. That might not seem like the most significant qualification but added its heart. It turns out that this thing was actually mostly a railroad project and I really don't understand. Canals describe what is a lot canal? Put a train in water and took. The limiting factor is not. How much can you dig? It's how much dirt can you hold away from the dig site and that other guy who had failed earlier just walk away. Like how much wood could it would chuck wrong questions? So Stephen set up the system. That is crazy a efficiently..

"So what followed was one of the greatest engineering disasters of all top. There was no to predict that so we couldn't have asked left field so it was the largest financial failure in history to that point if you exclude the existence of war because there are fucking mountains along the way they're literally would have to chop down mountains to make this work and when you start digging out mountains they tend to slide more mountain and all that. Shit you just dug out okay. So through this every time that make some real progress a big little comb through digging away like role look won't Happen Dad Frank. Exactly what many years the fucked up thing is that? You'd have all your steam shovels and Shit right there were all the fucking burial shitless sly and as you can imagine. It isn't super easy to get industrial excavating equipment in the middle of. What's pretty much an uncharted jungle at this? Everytime they're digging out the canal decides collapse they just need a good motto. Like short ashore gentleman shorter. Show I don't know what to be fair. He had faith he could do this. And that will move mountains. I read all right right into your Syrup Hill and then it keeps rolling back down. Just the bird hefty my liver. It's fine on several landslides were far from the biggest problem in terms of mortality. That would be the disease. Malaria and yellow fever where the big ones now. There are no official numbers on the desk but we know that the desert was significantly higher than two hundred people a month. Right half a dozen people died of yellow fever every day. That's bad for all kinds of reasons. Among which is that it makes it like super hard to recruit. New People makes you need to constantly recruit New People. Make sure you don't have any experience people on hand and also not great for Morale Heath we may WANNA rethink our investment in the Wuhan Connecticut. Oh Ila job will be so outdated. I'm sure by the time this episode goes up. Chinese government will have that under control or so. The biggest problem in terms of engineering was probably the rain so Panama gets dry season of about four months a year and it just so happens that most of the surveying expeditions chose that time of year to do their work. I'm an honestly. Why wouldn't you right? You're going to get a lot more done if it's not raining all the time but that meant that the engineers planning this thing never a sense of just. How brutal and constant rain was there. Well they knew enough sender surveyors there when it wasn't an but it made they didn't realize how hard it was going to be to keep metal ship from rusting how hard it would be. To secure new excavations it also obviously increases the likelihood of landslides and perhaps most importantly it turns to Cha Cha grice river I believe is how it's pronounced the Chagas River which is right. Down the fucking path of the canal into a raging torrent that flooded its banks by more than twenty Steve. Jesus look we've figured out the fire spurts and the lightning sand but this flooding rhythms Kevin is headaches and tackled by Macabre. What fuck okay. This rodent is unusually large in size. This is all right so one thing you have to keep in mind here is that this is not a French government project doing this right. Dallas has a ton of support and help from the government. But this is a private enterprise the contract that the Colombian government signed up. The Panama was a province of Columbia at the time. was with Dell not the French government and this was all being funded by the money that he could raise selling stock in that new company. The fucking invisible hand was like all covered in calluses and shit and also malaria. That was thrive. Sound like a damn good deal. By comparison doesn't it was actually by comparison. Okay but but here's the thing. This stock is spectacularly easy from to sell the people that invested in the Suez Canal got fucking rich and since most of the banks shit thought that was a pipedream most of the original Suez. Investors weren't fat cats. There were a lot of stories of like working class folks investing a few hundred bucks savings in the Suez Canal and then retiring to the Rivera. So people were gobbling up a chance to get in on Della -ception newest. They couldn't afford not to write. And of course since most of his backers aren't the savviest of investors to begin with. They didn't really freak out when the actual progress kept coming in way under the projections. He just come out and see how it is when you bill they'd go okay They didn't freak out when he like kept going back and selling yet more bonds against the future earnings of this thing off sign or even worse what he literally sought government approval to sell voluntary by. Were basically like lottery tickets that paid off with bigger chunks of the canals future earnings. If you were lying but unlike other bonds they were just like regular lottery tickets worthless. So yeah that's not true so got to be the one selling the lottery. Tickets is off interest and that is why I diversified my portfolio muscle heavily invested in. Scratch Bingo one. That's the buying a bunch of killing all right so eventually the whole thing falls apart and construction stops on May fifteenth eighteen thousand nine. The company went bankrupt after spending a reported. Two hundred eighty seven million dollars about eight billion in today's money Killed off over twenty two thousand people and they say less than a fifth of a cow so needless to say the backlash France was seismic over. Eight hundred thousand. Investors lost everything. The core started tossing people in jail for misappropriating funds the ensuing scandal and stared names as big as Alfred Nobel. The the Price Guy Gustave Eiffel Tower Guy and well DILA SAPS avoided jail time. His son wasn't as lucky. So all that being said there was a perfectly good chunk of canal just sitting there for the taking and a pretty big country nearby. That really wanted one of those and was about to be presided over by ten year old boy that loved to play with his construction toys. Okay so sociopathic. Idiot was way too confident about a giant construction project. He defrauded investors and he never got convicted rate. All right I guess. We'll take a quick break while France holds our beer and we'll do a little odd gentleman how they work on my magnificent canal. Not Great just can't fill as you can see wherever we dig the high waters of the river. Fill in what we've done with landslides. I see perhaps should extend the shifts work. The men harder longer. Don't think so sir I wear you know what they say. No pressure no diamonds. You're tired Pozzo. Gentlemen twit. Where's the guy from yesterday? Oh Yeah Steve became convinced last night that he was in hell and the former with the devil so Steve Killed Him me. That's that's too bad really really is man. Yeah well he did bring donuts. Ask Good. That's good so what's the good word honestly not great we. We've gone from digging in the to running from landslides. That's mostly what we're doing now. Then slides yeah but when you actually succeed in digging into a mountain it's mostly landslides at that point. I say well keep up the good work and remember no pressure no diamonds. Yup Oh you heard that one I I have. Yes for that just so much water up. Don't you WANNA don't not good okay? I'm finishing last one.

Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker

"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing. A movie has been made about her experience called maiden trip and she wrote a book called one girl one dream. It's pretty amazing. What people can accomplish

How America Thwarted a Giant Extension Cord for Renewables

"This week is author of a new book about the saga that unfolded when a wind energy pioneer tried just that we're we're. GonNa talk with Russell Gold of the Wall Street Journal about the transmission bottleneck in America's energy transition then to top presidential candidates are calling for day one ban on fracking racking and promising to phase out nuclear. What would be the consequences if Democrat actually put those promises into Action Russell wrote a great book on the fracking boom a few years years back so he's going to help us out with that topic as well and finally were digging into that Jonathan Franzen piece in the New Yorker that everyone is up in arms about we'll look at why it got so many people including thing myself so hot and bothered in Washington DC it is our co-host Catherine Hamilton Chair of thirty nor solutions. Hello Catherine how are you. I'm great. Congress came back act today so now I have to start wearing shoes. Although you are coming to us from home today so you have the option whether or not to wear shoes that's right in New Mexico this week traveling for some kind of speaking gig. It's Jigger Shah the president of generate capital. What about New Mexico for I'm here with my friends friends. The Energy Foundation and I'm not wearing shoes in Austin Texas. It is our guest. Russell gold a senior energy reporter at the Wall Street Street Journal Russell Welcome. Are you wearing shoes absolutely not I work from home. I bet he's wearing bunnies libbers. I am also not wearing shoes so look at this guys. We are We're all getting as comfortable as possible so nestling kick your feet up. Let's have a long conversation about transmission. Russell is a longtime newspaper reporter. He is a Pulitzer Prize finalist analyst for his reporting on the deepwater horizon oil spill. He's got two books under his belt. One on fracking called the boom and the latest is super power. It's all about this guy named Michael Skelly in his harrowing attempt to build one of the most ambitious energy infrastructure projects in recent history a series of high-voltage transmission lines essentially renewable energy the extension cords running from Oklahoma to the southeast and this book is about Skelly Journey and what it tells us about the difficulties of the clean energy transition so russell. You've covered a lot of different energy stories in your day. Why did you zero in on this one. I actually didn't really set out to write a book about transmission I I I looked around and I wanted to write about the people who were doing something big and ambitious about energy and climate and you know it didn't really matter what they were doing. I just will sort of wanted to understand what it took to throw yourself into a giant project because my sense was that the energy trends transition was going to require are these big ambitious ideas and projects and you know. I've sort of been reading a bunch of David McCullough box on the building the Brooklyn Bridge and the Panama Canal and I I wondered what was the equivalent equivalent today and I looked around and talk to people and people said Oh you gotta get down to Houston and talk to this guy named skelly because what he's trying to do with his company you know that that's that's the modern equivalent of building the Brooklyn Bridge. This is a big ambitious project and I went down and met him and you know his personal story. Worry sort of takes you from the the beginning of the modern renewable movement here in the United States late nineteen nineties up until today and I thought you know this is a fascinating story so oh I threw myself into transit transmission and how did skelly get so obsessed with transmission himself well you know he

My administration supports ongoing bipartisan efforts to pass legislation to combat the opioid crisis. We're dedicated to ending this crisis. The president also touted some of the efforts by his administration to combat opioid abuse since taking office in one year, we reduced high dose opioid prescriptions by sixteen percent, we increased funding by six billion dollars to combat the opioid crisis. That's a record at a recent cabinet meeting.

"So I think that I think that it's, it's it's easier because of the the ability to stay connected to the to the outside world. Now then that it was when we were sailing in particular, as I mean as far as the community goes, it s a little bit different group of people. I mean, probably just. I mean, we we, when we hit the Panama Canal, a cruising just change for us in a lot of ways because we were cruising the east coast of the US and we were in our late thirties, you know, we've the people that we were meeting that we're on boats. A lot of times were fifty sixty years old. You know, there's a huge age gap, but once we hit the Panama Canal and started started heading west, it was all pretty much people that were that were our age. How did they do it? You know that that talking about financially out and how people, gosh, there you know. Sailing, I guess, are being too. But I mean, there are s- there's such a range of people in terms of. I mean, we met, we met. I remember a couple in Brazil that we met that. I don't think I really don't think they had any money and they, but they were on a sailboat and I mean like no money by, you know, they were. They were trying to figure out how to you know how to kind of pull it together to to to make their next passage so they could provision in that kind of thing. So I mean, you can, you know, there are people that we met that are probably close to, you know, zero based once they got the, what's they got the boat and had it fitted. They set off and they didn't have a lot of money to to fall back on. And then I mean there at work. Some people would work along the way. Yup, that was the point that was pretty common. And a lot of people that we know went back to work and resumed their former lives. But the but the budgets, the budgets can be, you know, whether it's a budget that anybody's that they've actually thought about or just over. They choose to spend their money. I just a huge range and we see the same thing with RV. I mean, we see people. It's kind of funny though the the, the, the fancier, the rig and the more money that I sense that people have available. The less likely you are to see them in a place like this. Yeah, it's just it's just interesting. It's a combination of stuff. I mean everything from the fact that a forty five foot motor home would be tricky to get here. You know most most of the most of the public lands camping really lends its the public land's campgrounds, lend themselves to sort of, you know, thirty five thirty six foot motor homes are vs or less, right? I'm we're right at that cut here with our thirty six foot class say. But I mean, I there been so many places where we've been even state parks, national parks, a lot of them are older. They just don't have the space for, you know, great, big long motorhomes or excite big slides or tag axle rigs that can't, you know the can't make corners very well and or people that have paint jobs that are that are way too precious. It's hard to stomach. The idea. I mean coming up the road up here. It's hard. Stomach, the idea of taking a two hundred and fifty thousand dollar rig up a road like this. I know when when my wife and I were analyzing the market, a, we end trying to think through a researcher and we try to think obsessively about every detail I can possibly come up with, and we came to the conviction that we needed to have a rig. That was big enough to be reasonably comfortable for multiple days of bad weather, things like that where you're stuck inside, but we wanted to be a smallest possible because you think when you're looking at fancy rigs, oh, the bigger the better, but you get on the road and all of a sudden you find bigger is not always better..
