Project Sealab 1 Summary Report - Part 1
"Way back in the nineteen sixties when i was growing up most of us were intently focused on the space race in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. The united states was making the transition from the mercury program to the gemini program and there really wasn't allowed manned spaceflight going on that year but there was another amazing exploration going on in interspace natwest project lab. One well i didn't know a great deal about c. lab until i started doing some research for the segment. I did hear on the show about scott carpenter. I did read. Ben held hells worst book about c. lab and that gave me a really good understanding of the magnitude of the entire c. Lab project both one two and three. And as i was doing more research i came across a report from the office of navel research. And it's the project sea labs summary report so today. I wanna start two part series on this report in part one today. I'll take you through the report up until the c. Lab one habitat is placed in position and then in part to a couple of weeks from now will review the mission some of the findings and conclusions by the project sea labs. Some report is subtitled. An experimental eleven day undersea saturation dive at one. Hundred and ninety three feet and report is dated june fourteenth nineteen sixty five for anyone looking for the report you might want to search on n r report. Ac are one zero eight. It's not that long to sixty two pages now. The copy. I got had a stamp on the cover. Then indicated. hard copies of the report would cost three dollars while microfiche would be seventy five cents and the copy was also stamped. Archived copy of this report are ha o.'neil from the office of navel research. Gif bond captain united states navy from the united states naval medical research. Laboratory are eland. Fear lieutenant commander. Us n. office of navel research and t odum of the mind defense laboratory in the preface pen by rear admiral. Leighton he says project sea lab one was the navy's first step into space. He also states that this report is being published by the navy so that all may share the information it is interesting to note that the background section of the report the authors do reference the work being done by captain shot cousteau and mr edwin a link and that was on their man in the sea concept they they stated indeed. The navy seems to be left at the post by the well-publicized efforts of captain cousteau and mr link. So it sounds like there's a little bit of sour grapes. Their report goes on to describe a december nineteen sixty three conference with the navy's bureau of ships where they obtained support for a c. lab now at that conference. They decided that the mine defense laboratory would build a habitat needed to select a location and they had five critique criteria for the selection one was the prospect of good weather too was good visibility. Three was a level bottom for was moderate water. Temperatures at depth and five was the general features of ocean graphic and marine biology biological interest. Now the site that they selected was argus island off of bermuda by march of nineteen sixty four all the appropriate approvals were obtained and they were often running and the operations were supposed to be conducted in the summer of one thousand nine hundred sixty four now. The mine defense laboratory selected an old experimental minesweeping float. Now the report has quite a few pictures and illustrations in it. Unfortunately the pictures are really not that great because of this. Pdf being produced either from a microphone. Show old old dot copiers but the stations are pretty good. Particularly the architectural drawings of c. lab won both the plan view and the cross section views by marched by may nineteen sixty four. C. lab was ready for sea trials off panama city. Florida on may twenty second nineteen sixty four. It was towed out to sea and sank uncontrolled and flooded over half full of seawater. Fortunately there were no injuries. The habitat was lifted. Towed back dried out and ready for another try on may twenty six this time with success. The previous incident was attributed to a misunderstanding of line handling waters by july. They were in bermuda and ready to sink. C. lab on july fourteenth. They again had issues because of the three to five foot swells and the yard patrol boat that they were using just wasn't powerful enough like chief brody said in jaws. I think you're gonna need a bigger boat. Well in this case. It was a crane that they took from bermuda. The reach the report details the adventure of getting c. lab on the bottom but they finally did an after getting everything hooked up and twenty four hour checkout on monday july twentieth. One thousand nine hundred sixty four at seventeen thirty five. That's five thirty five pm for you. Civilians c. lab one was manned by robert e. less anderson robert a barth sanders w manning and robert e thompson. Now what were the conditions like on c. lab interesting. The report says see lab proper dry inhabitable atmosphere satisfactory temperatures. Seventy eight degrees chilly. Water supply water not available heaters operable. Tv monitor not hooked up properly. Hot water heaters not operating refrigerator not operating co two scrubbers satisfactory. Electro writer. Satisfactory calibrated microphones not functioning. Crass burgo two meters satisfactory lights satisfactory. So you can see. There was still a lot of things that needed to be repaired.

You can't have your legal bases covered. It's not like it's going to cost you a ton of money here. But Alan Dershowitz has smacked CNN with a $300 Million defamation lawsuit, And he's saying that the cable that work Distorted his words to portray him as an intellectual who had lost his mind during Trump's impeachment trial. During the trial. The Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz. He had argued that quote if a president does something, which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest that he cannot be the kind of a quid pro quo that results in impeachment. And that's what Alan Dershowitz said. And he's saying that CNN They broadcast footage, which he claims was misleading. In what he says quote is in a barrage of defamatory programming. And that led him to being openly mocked by most of the top national talk show hosts and by CNN viewers. And he wants them to cough up $250 million in Pune ease punitive damages and then another $50 million in compensatory damages. I don't know how he reached this this amount here, but Also keep in mind public figure burden pretty significant. Uh, I don't know what What is he doing? I I don't understand that, but we'll see what transpires in. I'm guessing this is not going to go all the way to court and I don't think CNN is going toe. I said, we'll see what happens.

The Best Places To Retire Abroad In 2020
"Are some of the best places to retire comma internationally. This this show has an international flavor favor to it. I did some very extensive Internet searches and research this for at least thirty minutes today. Yeah good for you. It's been a tough week. I'll be honest. The show did not take a priority and the other things I was doing but whenever the pasta the pasta gets meat or sausage. The what ever really. I'm also hungry all right. So let's start in investor. pedia looked at the cost of living index and the global peace index to determine airman the cheapest and safest places to retire so if not spending a lot of money and not getting stabbed is high on your list of retirement goals goals then let countdown. The top. Three number three was Czech Republic. And if you WANNA do this get in now because right now now Czech Republic only has about six thousand American ex pats there at the moment so it turns out. Czech Republic is very safe and pretty cheap to live in beautiful. Absolutely I've never ever been. I would love to go. They have a lot of castles apparently so progress beautiful but even some of the outlying at Karlovy vary which is old spa town gorgeous okay. Let's see all right the segments. We decided we're going to Czech Republic. Well the point is if you WANNA go like. Now's the time to think about doing 'cause it's apparently not many people thought about it yet. All right number two Australia invested pedia suggests that you can retire on two hundred thousand dollars in savings and social security in Australia because of the cost of living. Although I'm pretty sure anyone who's listening to this in Sydney just spat they're flat white out for surprise because I think I think maybe they're thinking yes Australia. If you'RE GONNA live way out in the Bush and not in like a town and kind of a big place that's that's a bold claim their kerchove right. It's fine all right and then so the number one place for cheap and safe to retire. Is Austria dubbed dubbed the Swiss Alternative Austria offers the beauty of Switzerland excellent infrastructure and a high living standard but enterprise. That's easier on the budget budget. So you get Switzerland at Austrian prices especially if you're you fans of the sound of music is beautiful. You could save money by making enclose out of curtains. Let's go hey. Another sound of music reference topical. All right well. What if you're flush with money because you invested so wisely with the Motley Fool's advice well? US News and World Report put together their list of where a fluent people should consider retiring abroad. Number three was yeah. Why settle for Austria when you can have Switzerland yes? The real thing came in at number three because of its favorable taxes neutrality ability and all that other goods Swiss stuff number two was interestingly enough on their list Australia because it has everything. It's a place for fluid people and the cash strapped so in this case US News I think was more focusing on the city's and how nice it is to live in Australia. Yeah I told you. This was not a lot of tough research. That was done. I don't think on anyone's part really mine or who. I'm citing Australia's a really big place. Yeah we got options and the number one place that. US News reports said that a fluent people should consider retiring from America for the the fourth consecutive year. new-zealand came in at number one for comfortable retirement. I've never been you've been rick. No stop on my bucket doc. Id List though we get well and there could be where you kick the bucket all right. Well what about the best overall place to retire. International Living Living magazine compiles their annual list based on the journalists and editors that they have on the ground international countries and what they have to say number three Costa Rica which is also known as it. I'm not making this up. Switzerland of Central America. Not everyone is deal is Switzerland but it was just kept coming up in my research So a couple can live comfortably on two thousand dollars a month. In Costa Rica Apparently Bentley Costa Ricans are very nice people. There's lots of activities and a lovely climate. I've been to Costa Rica. So here's a good piece of advice. I got about traveling around Costa Rica. Maybe it applies to the rest rest of the world. Say Yes Costa Ricans are Nice people But you can judge the friendliness of town by how friendly. They're stray dogs are so if you enter a town and the stray dogs are not friendly. Then you should move onto another town in. Costa Rica never heard before though right because if the dogs are are mean and scared and it's probably because the people around them aren't being nice to them and so don't they also have monkey's running around Costa Rica. Yeah howler monkeys howler monkeys when we visited. Is that top on your list. I need to make a list of the top countries to retire. That have monkey. We're actually thinking of going there. So that's one of the things. My kids like what it could go place with our monkeys running around so selling point. There's a volcano. We saw lava insane all right number two from international living's list of the best places to retire Panama so Panama One last year overall. But this year it's in second place. I just three hours by plane for Miami. You can rent an ocean view condo for as little as fifteen hundred a month in the cosmopolitan city of Panama City. Healthcare there is solid Alad and their program discounts is made available to retirees. And it means you get like twenty five percents off your energy bills and airline tickets and just lots of other stuff off so Panama. I've never thought about going to Panama. And it's good thing you bring healthcare because this is an emerging trend where people retire overseas. Because you can't live very decent lifestyle. This is a much lower cost than would have in the US but it's important to know that Medicare does not cover any sort of healthcare services outside of the US now in places like Panama. Ah The healthcare is so cheap that you're still fine but just know that if you have major surgery a lot of times these people have to fly back to the. US wanted covered by Medicare all right and the number one place to live a court to retire. According to international living is Portugal. A dear friend of ours here at the full just is retired Portugal. Peter so I will say their methodology here they only looked at twenty four countries And this website really has a thing for Portugal so why is number. Why did they pick Portugal? The number one place to retire. Well they say it's very affordable the client the climate is delightful. Healthcare is good. Food is good history retuns of things to do etc.. It's all great but they said the best part is that it's the people because they're very welcoming to foreigners and just it's a great place to make friends it's on the third safest country in the world the second cheapest in Europe while and a couple can live a comfortable lifestyle for about twenty five hundred dollars a month or if you're living in the city. Yeah but they're you know so those are some of the places I've found. I considered to retire to you excited. I am excited. Yeah there are lots of people who live very exciting retirement on less than thirty thousand dollars a year by living all over the world.

They have much less pressure in terms of the predators and parasites that they're trying to avoid however, on the flip side there just aren't as many females need surfing here is so an urban calling frog has to do a lot more work to attract a female. So his calls tend to be much more attractive is how much higher call rate, and he puts a lot of these extra checks to his calls to make them complex in a check to females. So it looks like that combination increased sexual selection pressure. So having to work a lot harder to get a mate, plus this relaxed natural selection pressure. Not having nearly the number. Parasites and predators is really shaping those calls net calling behavior of us city. And what do they sound like the name of the frog? The common name is tour at frog and the name is actually for the call. So this call is pretty cool. It has to hearts one is this simple part of wine Nesbitt too. So. In males.

After that FEMA is under with this recovery effort, especially considering that these kinds of strong storms may well become more frequent in the near future a devastating storm huge sections. You saw some of the drone coverage and aerial photos entire sections of Mexico beach in Florida, essentially erased devastating storm, even if the death toll is not the horrible numbers that we heard from hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico belated numbers, by the way. So you asked about the government in their response FEMA has of course, fallen under increased scrutiny since Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and quite appropriately. So many of the shortfalls from hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico don't seem to have fallen squarely on FEMA shoulders, and indeed the federal government in this case, I think managed to skirt a lot of the responsibility for a response that outraged many Americans and certainly many Americans in Puerto Rico. Oh, I think once the storm assessment is done here. Joshua one of the things that you're going to see is sort of the after damage assessment. And then lawmakers on Capitol Hill asking for disaster relief money. There will be an opportunity in December in the lame duck session for another appropriations fight that'll be a fight. But embedded in that fight will see what kind of will the Republican congress has to send relief money through FEMA largely down to help Florida and Georgia and the Carolinas recover, Shane Harris. What are we heard from the president so far on hurricane? Michael, the devastation and also the recovery effort, what's even say, well, here's largely praised it. And of course, he spent a lot of time in Florida had good things to say about the resiliency in the professionalism of emergency management and first responders in Florida. He knows well, of course, as was you're saying what the outrage was the response with hurricane Maria and previous their previous hurricane previous this. Of course. President Trump inspired so much outrage in pushback when he questioned whether the death toll now stands at more than three thousand people in Puerto Rico was accurate and accused Democrats of making up the number. So he will have good things to say as long as the response goes, well and really for any president FEMA, and the whole disaster response works, well, when you can de-politicize it as much as possible and really left the professionals takeover with the response that appears to be what's happening now here as well. It's also going to be the the aftermath you heard rock long talking about rebuilding the power grid. There are houses that if they are even rebuilt will have to be completely rebuilt now that the brunt of the storm is over it was very quick and very powerful few dead.
