Politics. just appeared yesterday by Marianne Goodland Governor Jared Polis is expected today to extend that executive order requiring bars and restaurants to stop serving alcohol but modifying it to give businesses one extra hour. Apparently Nana sources have told Colorado politics that last call for alcohol under the executive order today is likely to be eleven pm. This is an hour later than when the current executive order allows but that's very unlikely to be laid enough for Barn restaurant owners who had hoped to keep their alcohol sales flowing as sports play offs continued late into the evening. Some Colorado Avalanche Games for example well. Get. Underway until eight thirty and with overtime credit go they could go until at least midnight, right? And who comes up. With. Everything that goes into making the decision of what that magic hour is when alcohol needs to quit being served in bars and restaurants. It's like this witching hour. Somehow related to the spread of Covid nineteen can you help me with that? Nine, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, eight, seven, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, ten now. As you're well.

Should be able to keep serving alcohol after ten pm the Tavern League of Colorado, filed a lawsuit against police I seeking a temporary restraining order. Denver District Court judge denied the order and the lawsuit will continue onto trial. Now okay. Here's the rationalization. Police claimed in issuing the order that young people ages twenty to twenty nine who become inebriated bars and restaurants are less likely to wear masks or properly social distance themselves. I don't know that age specific. I suppose it could be argued. Or is this once again. The government. Extending that strong arm a little bit too far. He has said, his executive orders are based on science. I love that. Don't you everything is based on science until they retract whatever that science was regarding Kobe nineteen only to replace it with new Voodoo Science. And again, I don't mean to sound jaded or skeptical but come on. Let's be honest where all there at this point aren't we? I mean we've been so whipped was so much conflicting information. Don't wear a mask where mask. Drugs chloroquine works. No. Children are super spreaders northern. You know what I'm talking about. But why don't they give us the hard cold facts? And the actual science. Before well, they just launch into issuing these draconian measures that are hurting so many small businesses, bars, restaurants that might not ever reopen across the state indeed across the country. Anyway. Governor Jerry Paula said his executive orders are based on science but well, he has not cited proof that an earlier last call order would limit the spread of the virus among young people I've to.

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Executive Director testified during the hearing that last call order is not consistent not consistent with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention but nonetheless.

I've found that you can't ignore the fact that their existence has been so dependent on often individuals. You know that were transformed by these landscapes to the point that they engaged in advocacy for them or or made other remarkable acts on their behalf. That without which you know we might not even have them as national parks today. Being outdoors is really just provided a sense of stability in uncertain times. I actually feel kind of unique pressure to step up to this moment and try to provide people a window into this place thinking about a Mary. Oliver quote that the world's otherness is antidote to confusion. And standing in that other nece can re dignify a worse stung hard. That's Peter Dinsmore ranger at the currently closed Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.

Yeah it's like that we are. I'll get into that part or you down the road but like it just takes a long time in that win that Swatch of time.

Yeah exactly and so. I'll so excited. At My meow. Mix Commercial or like by China paper plate commercial than I can read this and then so I would go and I would bomb intentionally because it wasn't about me. I didn't want to be an actor.

Mix Line now assets myself all the time how did you? Yeah and so be inconsolable. And My co-host like berating. The and it was like a funny bit. We did so then I became single and my brother was like hey man. I've friends with this casting director for the Bachelorette. Do you want to meet with them? And I was like this is going to be the funniest radio bit. Ever because I'm going to be like to do. She focused on yes and Lo and behold not to do she. Just the right amount of do should. Did you go in with your normal level of Douche or did you add some extra to try to like to try to throw them off and try to get the whole big going I went in like Super Laze fare? So they It was at a hotel in Nashville. And I like was. I can't believe I did this at the time it was in assessing but it's it seems so big. Timea. I told them I said. Hey Listen I've got a morning show at this. Time is doing three shows as a morning show and then I have an afternoon drive show so I have a window of like eleven thirty to twelve thirty that I can do this. I have a hard out. Yeah and they were leg and they're like okay fine totally but in their minds who I think is you know. I think they knew your brother. And they were probably. Maybe he's the big Lebowski as well. Maybe I don't know so I go to this hotel and I get the lobby on the first guy because I have a heart out. Yeah so I go that. I'm wearing like a Jean Jacket. And like probably this exact shirt actually. It's probably this outfit but with Jean Jacket. Which I've seen you in a few times because you wear that to rehearse yes. I have a uniform so I get there and I look around and every guy is in a suit because in their minds. They're like I need to look like I'm supposed to look when I get out of a limo. Yes and I was like Oh Shit. I am under addressed for this. Don't you hate FM? Yeah no no but but but in my mind I'm like this is great like this is such great radio. I'm starting off so bad so So then they they call me up and they sit they sit you down in. It's kind of similar to this situation. Y YOU DOWN. And it was two female casting directors and they started asking me questions and they're like they're like first off. Why the hell do you got to leave at four in like five minutes and I have. I have a radio show and they're like oh great. Do your radio bit and luckily enough. I had done my morning show so I'd already had done like four bits. See good so I like just word vomited like the four bits. I had about like Justin Bieber. Peeing in a trash can and like how. That was the luckiest trash can ever know like.

We need to see you in Los Angeles and I was like oh I guess I did. You made it to the next. So then they fly you out Los Angeles. And then you take a five hundred question. Ecology tests psyche. Val Okay by the way people don't realize which I think is think it's got. I think what they actually do as you take the psyche vow and they just have to say like in case someone goes rogue one that show they have to say what we talked about them and we tested them and they didn't seem crazy X Y and Z. I don't really think because I've seen some crazy people on reality shows yeah as that psyche will. Yeah where have you seen the questions? I was on a reality show so I had to take the psyche. Yeah we'll get to that later on keep on going with your story. Well the the questions of like do you want to be a park ranger. And they'll be like I don't want to be Park Ranger.

"There was the road leading to the arkan- counter what needed a million dollars in repairs and they are worked up about this act of God. Did they not get the message soon enough that they need to start building? Or they didn't believe when they heard the storm was. Oh my gosh. This person on Twitter, by the way, who, let me think the, their handle is something about, you know, quiver. Full, that's what the nineteen kids and counting people practice where you just keep having more babies forever. I didn't know the name for. It's like a worldview okay about how you gonna keep rating. And that this prison is like a former who grew up in that. And now they're not. And so they do a lot of tweets about things that I love if you used to be Jellicoe and this person went to the arkan- counter and did like a thread about the way that the wives where portrayed at the arkan- counter it is fascinating, because that the bible is written by men. I don't know if you know this so under represented in the stories, and so we don't know anything about Noah's wife and the wives of his sons. So instead of just saying we don't know anything they filled in the blanks. Oh, and create. And these women are all long-suffering domestic wives to, you know that's probably what they were like, but they, they gave them names. They gave them jobs. They created a whole narrative about goodness, what these women were all about. Well, this is kind of interesting, you bring this up because one of the articles, I found was about how. Archaeologists have discovered pottery in New Mexico from it's over a thousand from a influential civilization that lived over thousand years ago and it revealed differences in the gender roles than what we thought they were going to be. Okay. So all pottery was made by men. They did like the crafty, that was like in. So when. When other settlers came in there. I presume are, you know, white people who didn't know what they were talking about. They said they looked at the people who were making the doing the pottery. And because it was part of their culture that women were the ones who did these things like me. They only saw the women, you know, maybe it's like two women in twenty men. They only saw the women who are making it, and so wrote in and said, like, oh, the women make the Padres out was his how it is. Yeah, but now all of the findings of fingerprints, and his forensic archaeology. They're doing shows that it was actually the men who did all of the pottery making, and, like sitting around the all these intricate designs on it that they had always said the women were doing. I think they were doing something else, bad ass. I really feel like it was like, okay, the men are doing like the artsy stuff and maybe the women are like I dunno teaching schools teaching the kids or something. That, and you know, and it was it was just interesting to see that it was so different. And they looked at the length of the ridges on the fingerprints. So the difference, men have wider ridges and wider difference between that between the Rijn riches. And they said that over fifty percent of the shards were made distinctively by mail hands and forty percent by women and thirteen percent had ridge gaps that they couldn't identify. But that this was something that was like there weren't almost in a way of saying, like there weren't these, like gendered job, where it was like men and women both made this, both needs pottery, everybody did everything, and it was totally opposite of what the archived writings of time had said, that's the problem we use our own experiences. It's not always intentional. It's just the lens through which you see the world. Yeah. And that you have to really. Be careful about that because we can make some shin 's that are not at all accurate. I wish there was a way to know more about I even get obsessed with just like thanks to I have serious radio in my car, and thanks to that. I'm able to see who's saying a lot of songs that I might not know otherwise and I realized I really love dusty Springfield and isn't that funny?.

"Averell but at the same time park rangers aren't blind to what they're up against i mean they know they can't save all or even most of these animals but it never stops them from doing what they can for instance i read this account from a former park ranger name is andrea lankford and she spent some time working at cape hatteras at the national seashore they are in north carolina and she routinely proud the beaches in search of sea turtle nests and then documented the location so she could check back in from time to time one day she comes across this tiny baby loggerhead turtle in the dunes and the experience which was early in her career it really made her reflect on whether or not her work was truly worthwhile so this is from an article in backpacker dot com andrew writes this she says holding the single turtle in my hands brought my decision about being a park ranger into sharp focus how could i not fight to keep this endangered species from becoming extinct how could i not risk my life jumping from helicopters or forty rivers so this baby turtle could someday return and lay its own eggs retirement benefits health insurance decent housing on my knees in the sand with a baby turtle struggling for its life in the palm of my hand i thought i had found the best and most important job in the world oh that's such a beautiful thought and you know that dangerous she mentions like jumping out of helicopters and fording rivers it's a part of the park rangers jobs that we don't even see often or think about but it's so present in fact i read some statistics from the department of justice and apparently national park rangers are more likely to be assaulted while on the job than any other federal officer and in terms of fatal accidents involving plane crashes and natural disasters park ranchers are up to twelve times more likely to die in the line of duty than fbi agents that is unbelievable well we really don't give them enough credit and and.

"Yeah like your questions like what is twitch what is comecon what about the rise of patriots for cost players yeah we'll also be talking about our personal experiences being in the nerd world as far as the yaar what is and why is it everyone using it for porn and we'll definitely be trudging through wikipedia giving you all those factories so you don't have to yes so if you're a new nerd or an old nerd season person come join us and listen to our podcast you can get on apple podcasts and we'll have you saying actually in no time flat checkout near deficit nerd if isn't i messed up at harmony at the beginning so i wanted another shot you're listening to parttime genus and we're talking about the highs and lows of being an american park ranger so may go for as long as there have been national parks there have been poachers looking to exploit the wildlife there and you know one of the earliest species they targeted was sadly the american bison now a few centuries ago tens of millions of bison roam freely across the plains of north america but by the late eighteen eighties excessive hunting and poaching had drastically reduced those numbers in fact by nineteen o two yellowstone's once great heard had decimated to just under two dozen animals i mean that just feels absurd us especially when you consider that native americans at hunted bison for centuries but they didn't have guns in horses so it made it a bit of a fair fight also native americans had always showed such a deep respect for buffalo and they were careful to use every part of the animals they killed and this wasn't the case for american poachers who were only interested in the body parts that commended the highest prices on the market and you know you just had these enormous carcasses that were.

"Yeah that's right so if you actually want to get technical that particular kind of hat pinch is known as the montana peak anyway definitely want to get technical if it's called the montana well veterans of dispatched american war brought their hats back and other soldiers realized it was worth doing the same squeeze and by nine hundred eleven the montana peak was officially added to the trooper's uniform and then a few years later went civilian park rangers took over the new recruits adopted that same fashion that's pretty cool and i'm glad you directed us to the military's early role in all of this because you know not only do they set the bar for the park ranger fashion but they also pointed the way forward in terms of the work that they did you know for instance pretty much from the moment troops arrived in yellowstone they started waging war with the poachers there and from what i've read this was no easy task especially because you know the military didn't really have legal authority to punish these poachers or at least not in any significant way right there weren't a national protections for wildlife at the time so soldiers basically had the authority to like confiscate gear or they could k connors out of the park but really there wasn't that much more they could do beyond that yeah in in most cases that wasn't enough to dissuade these people from coming back with new supplies the next week so as gave to pull the numbers and a fresh bison scout could fetch you three hundred dollars back in the eighteen ninety s and that was the equivalent about eight grand today so for poachers shot at that kind of money was well worth the stern talking twos that they might get from the military and of course the soldiers yellowstone felt a little deflated about this so they decided to get creative and sorta stretch the limits of the legal penalties that they could impose sometimes they'd locked poachers in the guard house for a couple of weeks or you know they'd force.
