Joe generates a group of pacific nations eighteen pacific nations including australia and new zealand. That and it. It's a an association of of of the region. So it's It's a cooperative body. It's not a A governance body. It's got a a broad general mandate And it's about regional corporation so it's not particularly a security body or particularly a trade body but it's about a common interests around the seek and it meets once a year in terms of its leadership to deal with issues that that facing all the pacific countries. It's obviously a big difference in size. Between a number of those countries many of those countries a very very small but other countries like australia and new zealander of illogic so y- there is a disparity in terms of income but a lot of common interest to.

"Times that dolphins played in our bow. Wake and at one point. Even a pot of dolphins came up to my group and i was able to touch the dolphin under the water. So if you are a diver. And like that's i would highly suggest to putin pass. It is worth your visit. If you are not a diver you can still do. Some snorkeling activities in the area as the lagoon and the surrounding ocean are full of wonderful marine life and corals. So i would highly recommend that or i would also recommend if you're not a diver to go take a boat excursion into food a pass to go watch the dolphins in the morning in the evening you used to eat technical term when you were talking about the type of fish and you said pelagics which i didn't know not a diver have dived. Once i think so. Can you define what you're talking about. Yes so a pelagics tends to be larger marine creatures such as sharks for instance sharks or what i think of generally when i think of plastic so whale sharks reef sharks. Hammerhead sharks in particular. Okay what else are we doing on. Renzo rua brand guerrilla reindeer Ringroad there are a couple of other interesting activities. Rangoon roya has french. polynesia's only winery. And it's the only at whole winery in the world. Okay i'm guessing. There are not the usual vineyards as that. I would expect to see somewhere else. They are not typical. These vineyards have been particularly cultivated over the years specifically to allow the grapes to grow and they only grow varieties of grapes to make wight wines and they only make four types of white wine. So that's something you're interested in if you are a wine connoisseur. Definitely worth checking out. They have a tasting room and they also have tours to the vineyard itself. You can get right on their website. It's called vendetta. He t. v. i n. space d. e. space tahiti and you can get right on their website and book a tour directly through them via email. It's super easy. Not what. I would expect into haiti or in french. Polynesia expected either but it was a pleasant surprise nonetheless some other things people generally tend to do because a row is so remote and mostly uninhabited. There's only about twenty five hundred people there. You can take day trips out of to pooja so you can take day. trips to. the blue hole is a very famous spot. it's essentially a lagoon within the lagoon. It's where the lagoon becomes deeper. And you can dive it if you're scuba diver or enjoy it. If not they also have a motoo which has pink sands crushed pink seashells over time have created pink sand that mixes with the white so it creates a beautiful pink hue across the motos. People also enjoy doing picnics. I would highly suggest that it's nice to just get on a bike. Grab a sandwich. Go find a secluded place on the motoo and sit and watch the waves come in from either the oceanside or watch them more tranquil lagoon-side now in terms of the accommodations there. This seems like this is going to be somewhat different from the over. The water bungalows in bora bora here correct..

"So make sure you pick up one of those well and we're talking about a country that is if he hadn't picked up from taco french polynesia a french speaking are the adapters also european salad. After so don't remember. Yes they are. So they're the two prong. European style adapters. Got it from there. There's also plenty of small restaurants and cafes most of them of course it's a tropical country so you can set outside. You can drink a beer. They also have to houston wine. Which will talk about a little later that you can pick up and an excellent food so my suggestion is just pick some place around the market. Sit down relax. Inn people watch. It's a largely pedestrian city in the central part of happy. It's a and it's also right up against marina in the ocean so you can watch the ships. Come in and out and just enjoy yourself. One thing that i hear people talking about when they talk about french. Polynesia in general and tahiti specifically is that it's not a cheaper destination. Is that your experience. Yes that is my experience so being that almost everything has to be imported in eighty. The prices of everything are increased considerably for instance. A bag of doritos chips large party size bag of doritos chips here in the us costs around four dollars. Roughly the equivalency over there would be seven fifty. Okay so just to give you a little bit of a price comparison. Ten and i won't even give you a hard time about going to to heat needing torito's but it was more of a crime of opportunity. Let's put it that way so other things you can do onto hiti. I did not take advantage of this To my constraints schedule. But you can take advantage of excellent. Tahiti in the center of the island is known for its waterfalls and lush jungles. There are also some excellent sunset cruises. You can do around the island of tahiti itself as well as four by four adventures in or people are also known to go biking around the entirety of the island's just as a few extra tidbits for you..
Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails with Shannon mustipher
"Shannon. Welcome to milk street. It's really great to be here. Thanks for having me. I love your book Tiki Modern Tropical cocktails. So. What does the Word Tiki me? Where does it come from and what is Tiki cocktail? Sure. So tiki refers from a cultural standpoint to religious practices and iconography from Polynesia, now, where cocktails are concerned Tiki termed applied retroactively. So in the beginning of the age of tropical cocktail, they were called exotic cocktails and we're talking about mid nineteen. Thirties California at don the beachcomber in Bay area then later trader Vic's in subsequent restaurants it was in the mid eighties early nineties when. Polynesian tropical culture enthusiasts mostly in California. Began research those bars and to look into brain those cocktails back that you started to see the word tiki emerged. Let's talk about some of the classics Don Beachcombers, Zombie. What's Zombie As army is a showstopper drink. Okay. So This thing has three different rooms in it. It has Grenadine, which is a pomegranate base, Schuss it Kinda crosses the line in terms sophistication because there's absent attitude shrink, which is a not to New Orleans Ed's more our baseness and you know Elvis's drink beyond the simple run punch that is based on issues like a pumped up. Kinda sexy around punch. and. You know there's some savvy marketing airs not just a cocktail that made it. Popular Abe was the limit two per customer. So people like trying to get it third on trying to order one their friend so I'm you know we're talking about the ingredients of design be, but I think what's the biggest ingredient? There's it's is cultural impact. The my tie. I didn't actually know what was in a my tie until I picked up your book. So what is a my time? Sure so The final change somewhat. But kind of simplify it. Is in most bars, a blend of Jamaican, and Martin Shem rooms or jaw, which is an almond based liqueur slash. Surp- Archer sow in line. Is Simpler to a lot of places make it out to be. What are some of the techniques like washing rumor bourbon? What does that mean? Sure. So washing means is essentially kind of. Another way of saying infusing. Dime Lee Campbell Cameras Bro an idea of taking rendered fat from Bacon. Adding it to whiskey. Giving time to sit at room temperature, and then later froze it so that the solids rose to the top and he skim it off and the result is you get this really Nice creamy texture and depending on what kind of fat we're talking about it can be smokey could be nutty. So as an example, I worked at restaurant called FINCH. Why did the? Same thing would smoked duck breasts fat and rum in the shrink was so crazy I loved to pieces. It was so easy like cheat I done it with coconut oil and rum's Meskel. It does all kinds of wonders no matter what spirit using but it's just a nice way to add a Roma and body and viscosity and just kind of smooth on the out. You must how many okay. In your bar, how many different bottles that you have I stopped counting at one hundred I thought it's kind of comical was look I would look at it daily. I gaze upon it would find this is just a lot going on here but yeah, there's a good amount of figure it's probably two hundred. ME. So here's a question. You know the Martini I think is GonNa get you drunk as fast as possible. That's my take on. The friendship, Para. Tif is to sort of transition you from work to pleasure at the end of the day. What's the role of the TIKI cocktail? In other words? What is it that it's really really about besides the flavors. First, and foremost fun you know and. Mystery adventure discovery I've had some of the best nights of my life in Tiki bars because the mood is a reverent. I. Just love that that freedom the be freed you get. In a tiki cocktail, a tiki environment. So. What about teachings often have strange interesting containers more much more so than regular cocktails What role does the container plan? All of this it's vital because the fee starts with the is so Tiki takes it mike way over the top like I've seen presentations where you know to try is in vessel is set down in a treasure chest or comes in from barrel. You know comes and coconuts and hollowed out pineapples. You know there's flaming garnishes I once judge the competition. Where the team that from a bar called Paradise Lounge in Bushwick? That is sadly no longer with us. They. Brought it full force. It was a fish tank. With live fish. So the fish were isolated from the cocktail I. There is fishing air which is. Crazy.

"Now we explore ginger. There are over one thousand species of ginger plant that exist in the world today. But did you know that Ginger is Culture Gen? A cult agenda is a plant species or variety known only in cultivation which means that it has no wild ancestor we know that ginger originated from island. Southeast Asia and that it does not exist in its wild state and while it's most often called ginger root it is in fact not a route at all. It's what's called a rising home. Which is an underground stem of a plant? One of the groups that has the longest recorded history of utilizing. The ginger root is the Austronesian people or more accurately the Austronesian speaking peoples. Now they are a large group of various peoples in Taiwan Island Southeast Asia Micronesia Coastal New Guinea Island Melanesia Polynesia and Madagascar that speak the Austronesian languages. Ginger was carried with them in their voyages as canoe plants during the Austral Megyn expansion starting from around five thousand BC. They introduced it to the Pacific islands in prehistory long. Before any contact with other civilizations the rise homes and the leaves were used to flavour food or they were eaten directly. The leaves were also used to. We've maths aside from these uses. Ginger had religious significance among Austronesian being used in traditional medicine and for asking protection from spirits. It was also used in the blessing of Austronesian ships. In Indian cuisine. Ginger is a key ingredient. App has a role in traditional IRA basic medicine which is one of the world's oldest medicinal systems and remains one of India's traditional healthcare systems to this day.

Rules of contagion - meet a mathematician at the frontline of the COVID-19 fight
"I remember seeing some of those early signals which were just really just the signs that we don't like to see in the early stages of an outbreak that we had this evidence transmission. We had evidence the the some infections maybe weren't being detected. We had transmission before people had severe symptoms which which meant the company down. And like we did. I was going to be really difficult and I remember. Seeing somebody data on how much transmission was with my owed or Muslims who was Simpson's appeared and I just remember just being compete. Used on thinking. This is going to be so so difficult to control. Associate Professor Adam Kucharski and colleagues working in real time right now to track the virus outbreak to understand how it spreads and what we can do to halt it or minimize. It's impact and you might be surprised to hear that he's not a biologist. He's a mathematician and an epidemiologist with the Santa Fe mathematical modeling of Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and he's worked on some big ones. The avian flu outbreak in China Ebola in West Zeqir in French Polynesia Dinghy in the Pacific and in a bizarre bit of publishing timing. He's new book. Just at is called the rules of contagion. Why things sprayed and why they stop at joins you and I from London via skype. It's been a very busy two months for US. Really kind of the early stages trying to get a sense of how. This thing was transmitting just trying to get. Some basic information really started from scratch in tons of understanding. We'll teach drool another place but then realizing that You know there are oversee with any outbreak elements that they're going to be unpredictable. As Trans Continued. We moved mobile to trying to just get some sensible situations in different countries. All this analogy differences and looking at different scenarios of going forward if we have these measures going in war factor they having this money work on quantify the impact in China. Does that? Leave us now? Where intentionally the most effective strategies we take to ensure that this thing doesn't continue to spread. You have studied infectious diseases for many years. In fact you actually started out in the finance arraigner gather and then skipped over using your mathematical talents to to going to epidemiology. Could you have imagined in your lifetime that you would see an event like this happen? That would have such a widespread impact. Was it just a matter of time? I think we always had a pandemic talk all our concern in UK. And then if you stop the register government stuff a really long time and a novel Groin of Iris. Given what we know about Soz modes is always been a concern. But I think to be in this situation Coppee e Would've US I mean as you mentioned that over time and finance and that was during the two thousand eight financial classes overseas. That questions had huge ramifications. But I think we're in a similar situation here where we obviously work a lot on infectious disease dynamics in the control measures we try and give ce`namas useful to understand what's going on in and make decisions but I think the the social implications of us very easy inamoto to say we're GonNa look at what happens if everyone is Three or four months but that has enormous social psychological economic indications. I think that's really important to see the real life impact on family and and people who might feel more isolated. I think gate really does highlight. How difficult these decisions are we are asking so much of people potentially for such a long period of time to bring on the control these incredible. What range of frontlines? You're working on right now. Where the data's coming from you're doing analysis of the people that were infected on the the cruise ship the diamond princess that was docked off the coast of Japan. You've taken data right from the very beginning of breaking Wuhan to look at fatality transmission from Wuhan Incredible Range of France that. You're working on a yeah. We're really trying to make the best use of of the day to is. We can help in the movie hunt analysis in February those a slowdown in cases in China. And the time. There's a lot of speculation in the media. Is that genuine slowdown hit casting capacity to meals. You have spike when they change the reporting criteria. I'm about weakened to February what we were doing looking at a number of other days so says well. For example how many cases had paid in other countries to travel hit history to an evacuation flights? In in early February we looked the prevalence of infection the flights and tried to estimate what that tells us about the outbreaks. I think really in this situation. You never have the perfect to you have a loss of quite scrappy. Noisy delayed in perfect data. And you have to try and bring them together in a way that allows you to get back to idea online picture in pulling all the numbers together from all the different sites all the different transmission pathways of this pandemic of this virus in real time data. Die As you are. Is there an interesting or picture? Emerging for you in relation to this pandemic this particular virus because of course you have tracked Ebola in west Africa Dangi in different parts of the world size. So you have a real sort of sense. Fine tune sense of the nature of epidemics end subsequently pandemics things that really stands out with this Early growth pattern of this outbreak. When there's not stringent control in place is really similize scenes between countries across over a dozen countries. I'm over the last month. We've seen very very similar rates of growth suggests that the the infections potential to spread nip population. That doesn't have good control in place is really kind of universal. And it's not the case you've got some countries that just aren't GonNa be we know. These lockdown measures worked in China. But at the moment we don't have a clear evidence base to anything like that can really be sufficient in many countries to tell these outbreaks. So we'll transition takes off quite crude tooling tons of down seems to be the only one which is really reducing transmission. Yeah that's extraordinary. What distinguishes say Taiwan and South Korea? Then from a country like Singapore because I of course we're able to get on top of transmission really early and I stand out now in the world yet and it's been a few differences between will this country so for example career. It was really extensive. Testing booster the early outright was was quite geographically concentrated they had that massive action events in places like Singapore Taiwan that had is kind of tracing at risk as you get moving more imported cases it does become more difficult because data movable was GonNa Push. I mean we do. I'm Hong Kong with slightly different. 'cause they had Distancing Measures Leon but again I've seen last few week We have last week the They all increasing numbers in has been suggestions from from some people on huckle knew that may be some element of fatigue because these measures happened in place for a couple of months ago. Schools preemptively at a religious illustrates the difficulty the evening countries. That done an incredible job. Reducing transmission are still eventually ended up in this situation where they're having to take most measures. Yes in Hong Kong is exhausted. It's been dealing with MSA. Months of Ineffective Social Revolution they social aspects of contagion. Really fascinate you. And this is such a weird time had to be releasing you your new book. The rules of contagion why things spread and why they stop. It's almost as if you publishes had big plans for you. It's it's been very surreal and even just revisiting the book Talk about the next pandemic and and reflexive it's valuable nets as is strange to see some of those themes Nine about a while Play out but not just in terms of defection itself also the contest about kind of misinformation line in the structure of how that works and what we've seen his follow that pretty closely in terms of of some of the dynamics outlined the book
"Thompson has been in examining oral histories the records of Captain Cook and the accomplishments of the Polynesian voyaging society. All to investigate what it can tell us about how we view the world. Today she pieces together the navigation puzzle of sailors and settlers in her book. See People Christina. Welcome thanks for having me. So when when we think of Polynesia talk about how big it is and what it has in common culturally so Polynesia is the area that is inside of this triangle we'll formed by Hawaii in the North New Zealand in the southwest and Easter Island in the southeast. It's an area of about ten million square miles and it smack in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it happens that all the people who live on the islands in this area which is the island's that people have heard of like Tahiti or saw more or maybe the mark cases they all share a common cultural heritage. They all speak related languages and they have a similar genetic. Ming up no Christina. You say ten million square miles and originally they were not populated by human beings at all so somehow people had to get there and there was no communication. People didn't right. They didn't have metal tools. They didn't have navigational devices that I can imagine. Can you just kind of paint a picture to the best that we can. We're were there caravans of canoes just going out into the unknown C or how did these islands become populated originally well. I think one thing we don't know is how many canoes necessarily sailed together but basically the idea is that you know some thousands of years ago over in what sometimes people call the island nursery Sirri of Southeast Asia in the islands around the Philippines and Indonesia and stuff people developed an outrigger. which is this thing that sticks out from the side of the canoe to keep it balanced to keep it from from tipping over and with the development of the outrigger people started to be able to make some longer distance? Voyages and the canoes the Polynesian sailed in were like Catamaran's they had to halls else and they were stable and they could carry a load of people and animals and so they started making longer and longer voyages. There's some again some thousands of years ago from this western side of the Pacific out further and further and further into the mid Pacific. But it must have been hit or miss because they didn't have maps. They didn't have radar. They didn't know where the islands were if they were islands. Do you think they were just kind of going toward the sunset and hoping to hit land now the sunrise is actually but they obviously looking for islands and the islands are what they call inter visible. You can see one from. I'm the other in the Western Pacific. A lot of them are. There's a big leap when they get past that point and they start to sail out to islands that you can't see so they're probably exploring hiring and looking for them they really were amazing navigators. They weren't sailing blinds. They understood how to go to one place and sail back from that place after. Remember where that place was and things like that. They must have been exploring but we don't really know how they found islands like the end of Hawaii. Which is the islands of Hawaii are very isolated in the North Pacific? How did they find them who knows because we have no written history people? Just build a raft. That was kind of like one of those early outriggers Imagining how they might have done it and just without knowing if they did it prove that they could have done it like those. Expeditions seemed to be part of science right right so the the earliest one was was to Harles kon-tiki raft which he he allowed to drift basically from the coast of South America and ended up in the middle of the Pacific on the tomatoes. And that was an kind of an early experiment in this vain but then in the nineteen seventies in Hawaii some people got together and decided to try and build a true replica vessel so a copy of what they imagined. An ancient Polynesian voyaging canoe would been like and they decided to try and sale it from Hawaii to Tahiti and back again and that was the beginning of what what is really kind of an experimental voyaging movement in Hawaii. And what was that expedition called. The ship was called Hokule'a it Okla has made an around the world voyage now but that was in two thousand sixteen I guess but between Nineteen Seventy in two thousand sixteen they have made voyages absolutely everywhere. They sailed to to Easter to New Zealand. All around the Pacific to the point is to prove that it could be done yet to show the voyaging capacity of the Polynesians basically to show that non instrumental. Navigation vacation is really a thing and that people can go very long distances using it. You know that it's a real technique. You said they sailed it. Is it drifting with the wind and the tides is it with a sale or is it paddling they have a sale. They have a steering paddle but they sail. What were the very first contact with European society like in the Polynesian World? Some of them were violent. Some of them were not. We don't have any idea what the markes ins thought of men Donya when he arrived Zeppelin we know record of it and what I mean. There's the record of the Spanish but we don't really know for sure what archaisms thought There was a little bit of that I think. In some cases there it was all in some cases there was fear in some cases. There was something that you might call. Greed greed Westerners. No on the part of the I mean I. I think that a lot of islanders actually looked at these ships once they realized kind of what was going on and who these people were they actually wanted the ships. There are definitely stories of ambushes. Did they have some kind of A religious context again in the case of the conquistadors from Spain I mean in their religion I understand. It was on this certain year. A man on a horse you know was going to come and on that certain year the man on the horse with the beard came just like their scripture said and they disfigured this must be divided and they laid down their weapons and was there any kind of dimension of that local cultural religion with the arrival of the first Europeans pins or was it the opposite The story of Cook's arrival in Hawaii is kind of like that story that he arrived during a festival in he seemed to be the embodiment of the deity. Who was being celebrated in the Festival because switches to happen that he arrived at that time? I think that that added to the confusion of cooks experience. AGREEANCE cook was killed in Hawaii. That was where he died. And it was not long after this encounter during this festival period and I think it added to sort of chaos and confusion that he had Iraq during that a period. This is travel with. Rick Steves talking with Christina Thompson. Her book is see people the Puzzle of Polynesia and we're talking about early explorers of the Pacific both before the Europeans arrived and after so captain cook arrived and they thought. Oh It's a festival in here comes God and then things went sour and they killed killed them. Tell us a little more about that. So what happened. Is that Cook. He went up north to Alaska and then or the Northwest Pacific and then he came down and when he came down he was looking for a place to rest his crew and he sort of hit the island of Maui and then he went east so he sailed all the way around the big island before he found a place to come to rest his crew and that meant that he was sailing in his ship all the way slowly because against the wind all the way around the big island for quite a while and so when he arrived the legend of Lono the God that he sort of seemed to be representing was that Leno passed around the island in the same. I'm way he was represented as carrying a staff with White Tapa cloth on it which is sort of like the the ship to mass in their sales so just a lot of things lined up kind of strangely initially and then what happened was he. They went through all this festival these festivals and celebrations and then Cook sailed away and that should have been the end of it he should have just sailed away that would be fine but his mast broke just offshore and he had to return and when he returned he wasn't supposed to return according to the legends. He wasn't supposed to come back until the next year. So people were confused by that and then there was an altercation. He died in the clash not long after he returned.

"It's much more difficult to tap into things to do so there's a couple of really good reasons. Why at cruise around French Polynesia should be on your bucket list however there are a couple of watch outs which may influence influence your decision so let me talk about the full big things that I think you need to be aware of before you put that cruise on your bucket list French? Polynesia is a long way away. You need to fly into Petty Tahiti. That's a good eight hours. Flight from Los Angeles if you coming from Europe is twenty anyone else so we flew on eh tahiti-nui which was fantastic they have brand new Boeing dream liners and it was really comfortable and magnificent flight but it is a long way to go so bear in mind as you put on your bucket. You're traveling a long distance so actually think about once you get here how you're GonNa make that an around worth the wall of the investment of flying all the way here so what most people do is they do the cruise but that also tag on some pre and post as land-based as well. The second one child is when you start looking at the fares for the cruises initially they will seem quite expensive however make sure that you really understand what's included so again for example it was lost all inclusive so all the accommodation all the food including specially donning all your drinks were included auditees included so you only real major extras where Wifi and excursions so when you crews says although they may look expensive make sure you understand what they include. They all much better value than you may think. When you first look at the fairs it is relatively expensive trip but like many bucket lists? That's why they aren't people's bucket lists. The next one is around the best time to go and that's in French. Polynesia is really between June and August between the mid twenties to thirties you have the least amount of rains he had more chance to have blue skies and it really is the absolute best time I WANNA cruise in June and we had a really really great time. It wasn't too hot. The way that was great. Next Watch is if your pen to go on a cruise around French Polynesia think very carefully about who you go with so some of the bigger cruise lines do come to French Polynesia. They tend to include French Polynesia some of the islands as part of a Baker trip. What's really important? Those cruise lines don't have ships that are specifically designed for French Polynesia because there's lots of reefs. It's quite difficult again to some of the audience so the big ships can only get into very few of the islands however if you go with the cruise line which is much more rooted at has ships to signed for French Polynesia. You'll see a much more diverse and a big part of the region so again using the example of Poule Gorgon. This ship was ready. Specifically designed for French Polynesia has a very shallow draft which means it can get into many of the islands has able to navigate round some of the reefs that surround many of the islands and it gives you a much more diverse and wider range of islands so very importantly as you look at which cruise line fine think about one which is really designed and targeting the region because you're gonNA see more than so look at the range and diversity of islands that they're going to take you to cruising around French. Polynesia for me was really a bucket list destination..

This week on off track on our in. You can hear an episode of ABC sciences special series the chase that looks at some of the research projects underway on Titi Aurora using the pristine islands in this atoll as living laboratories while I was visiting Teti Aurora for that story.

Hey, brain stuff, I'm Lauren Vogel bomb. And as it turns out, humans aren't the only creatures the create and riff on catchy tunes Wales. Have pop music to during breeding season as male humpback whales swim along they sing the same song. Females never sing only males due to find a mate or to posture for other males the songs passed back and forth between the members of a pod each WALE, adding his own little flourishes. And as that pod meets other pods. They pass the tunes along until whole oceans ring with a song of the moment in the world of human pop music. What was the hot song of the summer will be dropped by every radio station in the fall to make room for the new hot thing? Research published in the proceedings of the Royal Society b suggests that the same is true for whale songs. The popular tune becomes gradually more and more complex. It's altered by different populations of humpbacks. But after a few years, the wheels grow tired of their complicated Diddy and start from scratch again the research team. Based out of the university of Queensland rated the complexity of song recordings of ninety five humpback whales from different populations in the Indian Ocean, of course, thirteen consecutive years. They found that over the course of a couple years. The same song spread all the way across the South Pacific from east Australia to French Polynesia lead author Jenny Allen marine biologist and the sedation ecology and acoustics laboratory at the university of Queensland said in a press release typically these songs changed gradually possibly through embellishments by individual singers. We suspect the embellishments allow bowls to stand out from their peers much teenage boys trying to stand out from the crowd. But every few years the songs are replaced always buy something simpler, suggesting there's a limit to the whales capacity to learn new material. Although there is evidently a limit to how much Wales can learn the build up and abandonment of particular songs signifies, a rapid cultural change over thousands of miles of ocean. Allen said that's basically unparalleled in non human culture. Dolphins. Do have fads too though.

"Halloween stores target, the dizzy store and more to get their hands on Milwaukee, costumes and accessories, but there has been some controversy over parents allowing their children address up as their favourite Polynesian, Princess, please. Here's here's the damn. Yes. I was going to tell you. Go ahead. Tell me all the prints most the princesses except like who Snow White blonde brunette like I am like when I was a little girl. I totally would have wanted to have dressed up like Milwaukee. Right. So if you're a brunette girl, it doesn't even your ethnicity. Does not even matter if you who there's a brunette Princess I want to dress up. And that's it boom, you're done. That's an end of story. They're they're being silly. Now. I agree with you. Because I think all this cultural appropriation crap is nonsense. But aren't you interested where a Luli crop? Alva- low was was born Don Archer interested where she comes from whose culture, we're we're procreating here. I assumed that she was from the islands. Of. Highlands of like the Pacific Polynesia. Yeah. The Pacific islands of smashing mushrooming mushroom. Get some this this island. Figured right, right. That or Hawaiian or something. Okay. Well, there's a difference. Now saying is part of the United States of America. True, which is part of our culture because we are American Americans. Dress up is another actress who plays like in other words sale Luli crop Alava was born in. Hello hawaii. I don't think I've saying that right? Either koala Hawaii, which is part of the United States of America is she coach appropriating Moana since she's American or not no because it's from back in the day. Anyway. At one time the islands worked part of America. So there you have it. But she's American why she allowed to play mwana. Great question. Great question. So in other words, if my little girl have saved Claire dresses up like mwana and somebody goes, oh, you're culturally appropriate. I'll say no she's dressing up like a Luli crop. Who's Hawaiian which is merica sushi's dressing up as a fellow American say, boom. Wow. That's a lot of thought. I gave away was way too much thought. I was in the car for a little bit on Saturday. Way too much time on my hands little girls. Just wanted the Princess the kind of looks like that. And all the princesses are blonde. Yes. Except like a couple of have red hair and blue eyes, they're all blue eyed blonds. Well, some of these social Justice warriors like Saatchi ferris posted a blog for raising race conscious. Children titled mwana Elson Halloween. They went viral why she wouldn't let her white daughter. Dress up as Milwaukee mwana is based on real history. And a real group of people are going to dress up as a real person, we have to make sure you're doing it in a way that is respectful. Otherwise, it is like we were making fun of someone else's culture. She said now, my honoring their culture, you're honoring the culture, right? I would think the same thing. Now that culture, by the way is played by an American. So I think a Luli Kravis Lavaux should drop out of Moana. 'cause I'm sure there's a sequel the works. You know, what I mean, they'd give it to a real to a real. Polynesian, not American South Pacific American south, non her heritage. I dunno. She's she's America should Louis. Crop lavas is American as I am dawn. She was born in crop below Hawaii where Cavalo Hawaii which last time I checked is not only Barack Obama's fake state where he was born. But it's hard. I'm not kidding part of America, dawn, America. So I could claim Awada I should play mwana. It'd be great. W mazing right now Christopher Columbus. We don't mind appropriating that guy's culture. This is what bugs me is in Italian only tickets on my chest right now. How many times did you go into a pizzeria, and it's not run by Italians or or Italian restaurant not run by Italians. Right. Right. And every time you go to Texas, they go how y'all doing what some mozzarella people appropriate? My culture all the time. We don't care Italians. We just got beat up about it all the time. Do you not right? But is it form of flattery because the Italians have like the best food? We do have the best food. Right. You ever? See you go to some of these restaurants and the guy over you. And then they like, oh, you talion non polish. What are you doing making go make me a knish or whatever? Perogie anyway. Some Italian Americans still fiercely defend Columbus Day, dawn, you know, why this is a basil. Amroussa I love this guy's name basil Russo the national president of the order of Italian American sons and daughters, he said to truly understand Columbus is important to Italian Americans is necessary to understand how they were treated upon arriving in this country. My people did not have it. So good back. Then when Italians I got here they were not treated, very well. In fact, Italian four million Italians immigrated to the US from eighteen eighty to nineteen twenty many of them farmers laborers fleeing poverty to come to America. And what they all said was the same thing. They said a school was he can I please come into your country, and they were called ruffians and murderer Russsians sneaking and cowardly Sicilians the descendants of bandits and assassins who transported this country and to lawlessness cutthroat practices and the oath bound societies of their native countries are pest. So what they did was they decided to formally. Recognize Christopher Columbus in nineteen thousand eight hundred ninety two because they wanted to recognize the contribution of Italian Americans to America. So actually what was done here was Columbus Day is not to honor Christopher Columbus. It's to honor Attala immigrants, and that's why Columbus Day became a holiday in nine thirty seven after much lobbying by the knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization. President Franklin day Rosa Roosevelt, proclaimed Columbus is a brave navigator. Who's voyage was the culmination of years of bold, speculation careful, preparation and struggle against opponents. You had belittled his great plan and at its execution. Now, it's interesting to me because of course, Roosevelt was the one who would put talion Americans in concentration camps during World War Two. But they still keep his name up everywhere. Nevertheless, they did this now to honor the contributions of Italian Americans today. President Trump tweeted out I want to share with you his tweet on Cologne. Because I'm glad he did this. He didn't pull any of this indigenous peoples crap or anything like this. He said this today said Christopher Columbus spirit of determination adventure has provided inspiration to generations of Americans on Columbus Day. We honor his remarkable accomplishments as navigator and celebrate his voyage into the unknown expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. Then the official presidential proclamation. Also talked about the contributions of Italian Americans into the United States of America. He's all we got who else. We got. We lose him. What we got? We got enough guts dawn, we got on God. This is my point. So you know, instead of just looking at the bad things Columbus did he was supposed to be. Hey, this guy Italian. So maybe we if they want to replace them with something I'm saying he can't make it indigenous peoples that you've got to come up with another Italian wasn't Galileo. Galileo was Italian killed them for Galileo said they killed him. What about the other guy that there was in that movie was good about him? I'm amazed. They they didn't just change it to like immigration day or celebrating immigrant's day. Yeah. Right. I'm amazed. At that. This is this is the Italians I don't know another culture you're allowed to just just shrug off like people. Just shrug them off. Remember that when you're at the olive garden that is cultural appropriation, by the way, and Dom Donohoe this guy. I don't know what it is with my brother, my Italian brother with his olive garden. He loves it. He goes there for the unlimited salad and breadsticks. I kid you not I guarantee tomorrow with Dom show, he'll defend the off guard. He's got to have his talion card taken away. When I say, I say, Mr. south Philly himself, turn it in its door handed in your unlimited squishy breadsticks in your salad, but he's a score there for unlimited salad. That's probably what it is. Now has like right. You have your your sacred places, you shake replaces the real stuff, you got to go to the real place. Itself, you know, unless you're trapped in the mid west and some hell storm. Nothing else there. Nothing else. They're all right. So listen, a lot more crazy audio for you of nonsense. And just in case you're wondering we have more Alec Baldwin hosting a radio show.

"Suspend. Ability to reason. Skipping three different. Answers as to win the assault happened mid eighties early eighties. And all of a sudden actually was the summer in one thousand nine hundred eighty two after she lawyers up. You have to believe that she. Waited. Waited really until now to reveal that the individual who assaulted her was in fact, judge Cavanaugh. Never said anything anybody else. Although her husband now has circled back and said, oh, I remember her telling me during marriage therapy. Okay. We'd like to see the notes they won't return. They won't release the notes. So that is not believable. She can't remember key details about the night who invited her to the party how she heard about the party how she got to the party how she left the party where the house is exactly with any specificity. And of course, most importantly, how she left the party with whom she left the party how she traveled back home when she got back home. The alleged assault has not been corroborated by single person, including none of the people she's named including as well. Her lifelong girlfriend, Leland Kaiser that apparently is not changed based on reports today. She hasn't provided a consistent account of the alleged assault. And she had big trouble. Remembering important recent events. Like in her discussion with the Washington Post reporter, whether she actually gave portions of a therapist's notes to the report analysis in July, the whole copy of the therapists notes read from the therapists notes, she doesn't remember. She can't remember if she had an actual copy of the therapists notes when she called the Washington Post or she had gone to her therapist's office and read the notes can't remember any of that. She won't provide the notes to the committee. She won't provide it to the committee. She can't remember the day that she had the polygraph. No. This is very recent. It's what month six weeks eight weeks ago, whether it was on the day, her grandmother passed away or not she can't remember if it was video or audio recorded, and the committee would like to know they want to see. In fact, she was traumatized during the course of the. Excuse me, lie detector tests, does she claims? She talks about the psychological impact. It had that she doesn't wanna fly she's difficulty flying. Now. We know that was a flat out lie. Man, say that. Yes. A flat outline she's flown west coast, east coast, east coast to west coast. She's flown to Hawaii French Polynesia Costa Rica all over the world. But when she was asked to shop for a hearing. She couldn't fly. Although it is said that she was already on the east coast. She didn't know that the Senate Judiciary committee Republicans the majority had offered to go to California to interview her in any form. And. Why didn't she know? People say her lawyers must have withheld that information. Maybe the lowest didn't withhold the information. Maybe she just didn't give a forthright answer. We know from boyfriend. That she never mentioned Kavanagh's name. She never mentioned sexual assault. The six years that they live together and the few years before that that they dated. We know she had no problem with claustrophobia because she had an apartment that was five hundred square feet. That's a small apartment. That's a very small apartment. We know that she never mentioned Kavanagh's name to her boyfriend her live in boyfriend of six years. So you have to believe. The believable. To believe her testimony. Against Brett cabinet. You have to believe the unbelievable you must suspend your reasoning. And now that I'd gone all through this. She's not the bubble lady. She came forward. She said, it was her civic duty. She's presented herself to the American people. And we get the judge senates. Not the only body that gets the judge you, and I get to judge, and we don't have to self censor. Have to be rude and hateful and all the rest. I'm not that. And we're not doing that. Now what a cabin. I'll say that was so unbelievable or contradicted. Absolutely nothing that I'm aware of what that he may have more drinks one day than another day. He's the one who showed up with his calendars. He's the one who had witnesses who said he was never there. But you see the FBI didn't interview him or Ford. Now, according to Ford's lawyers who are very upset. And of course, the Democrats are one in the same. But that's not the nature of this investigation. It's not a criminal investigation. They testified in public under penalty of perjury. There's nothing else for them to say. So why do we continue to play footsie with the Democrats? We should play brass knuckles with the Democrats say enough already Mr. flake Emma's Collins, amiss Murkowski, if you wanna throw him with the Democrats, go ahead. We're having a vote. This is over. We are not going to participate in any further sham. We are not going to participate. Now in the trashing of the FBI. I'm not talking about the senior people at the FBI.
