'Rediscovering America' Author Scott Powell on Christopher Columbus
"Folks, the book is rediscovering America, Scott Powell, the author and my guest, you are just talking about Columbus day that has suddenly become controversial. So let's talk about Columbus. Columbus was a he was basically a working class man, a fairly simple man, self educated, and he had a passion for the sea and seafaring. So that was his that was his reason for a living was to be at sea. And he shipped out on various with various ships, and he really had an interest in learning about navigation. In any case, when he ran up against the Muslims in the eastern Mediterranean at that time, and they cut off the trade routes from Europe to the orient, he believed that there would be a trade route going in a westerly direction that the world was round, and so that was planted in his mind on a ship on one of the one of the ships he shipped out on out of out of Spain, the encountered a battalion of ships that attacked him because there were, they were at war with each other, the Flemish World War, and so he actually his boat went down, he ends up in Portugal, Portugal was the center of navigation of the world. That's where, you know, the most advanced maritime sciences existed. He learned a lot, and then he had this passion. He had a vision to pursue that he was going to find that trade route. He was a passionate Christian, so he also viewed the opportunity to take the message of Salvation to people in another part of the world that had never heard that good news.

"Was so cool. Hello. From radiolab. Listen, wherever you get podcasts. Do you want to have a coffee first of all? Oh, yes. Absolutely sounds like a great idea. It's early morning in a coa valley village, and I've met up with ecologist Sarah alia Carr. She works with Pedro and focuses on each of the species that are part of the rewilding puzzle from plants to animals. Oh yeah, that is a stiff espresso. I'll set me up for the day. And this morning, after I jolt of caffeine, we're heading out to find some allies in the rewilding process. Four legged allies. A herd of saraya horses. Sarah horses are a very rare breed, an ancient breed of horse that developed in Portugal, discovered in the 1920s. Sarah and the team brought ten of them here from southern Portugal as part of the effort to rewild the coa valley. Actually, there is like this mystery of it was they are not sure if it was a horse where it seems like it was more like a donkey like a wild ass. Called zebra. It was like it was like a wild ass that was in the aviary and Peninsula until the medieval times. They have long skinny faces, and black stripes on their legs. You can picture them etched in the ancient war carvings near here. There are only about 200 soriah horses left in the world. These ones arrived here in May 2021, and a dual effort really by rewilding Portugal to help save this breed, but also to deploy them to help protect this landscape against fire. Sarah drives us to where the horses roam the valley. We have to keep stopping the truck to open up a series of gates that help keep the precious horses in place. As we continue up the bumpy road, Sarah tells me she feels a bit like a transplant herself. She grew up in a city with no nature, not far from Madrid. When she moved to this area from Spain, locals would ask a why she'd want to live here. And when I explained that to them sometimes they are suppressed, surprised like that these plays that for then is like their everyday life where they have always known kind of like creates attraction. I know that people want to come here and live here. What do you say to them? When you say why you think it's special, how do you explain it to them? I say that I think nature here is amazing. And also people here is super welcoming. We arrive at the end of the road and hit the trail on foot to see if we can track down the herd. We have the horses collard with some devices. Oh, really? Yes. Radio call it horses. Yes. Because then we can know where they are. We can understand their movements. As we head out into the brush in the warm sun, Sarah uses the GPS locations on a phone to locate the horses. She's going to show me how they're helping to fight these major wildfires. This Arri horse is a perfect for this ecosystem. The hardy, ancient, they can handle themselves around predators. And of course, they love to graze the broom. So they keep it lower. I see. It's not like because this can be two meters or three meters tall. It could be taller than you. This can create like kind of completely close ups forests. But you have the large herbivores working in between. So you see how much grass is our in between then. Sarah describes the horses as a natural fire brigade. They open up the landscape and create opportunities for other plants to grow. And that is very important because it's what wildlife needs. We continue our walk towards the horses. There's something about being in this ancient place, anticipating these ancient authors. As we get closer our voices get more quiet, just follow me on Sarah. And she's following another satellite location. On a phone. Of the horses. How far are they? He's just a couple of hundred of waiters now. Okay. Then one of them slowly appears through the small oak trees about 30 yards away. The sun is silhouetting it. Oh my God, there's a horse. Just didn't meet a little yolks. Oh my God, I just walked. It's like a night of the past from 10,000 years ago. But it's the future too. Then two others appear. One chestnut brown color, the other gray white. Those long slim faces. Oh my goodness, he's right here. I get down. I'm lying on the ground now. And one starts to approach me. His name is Milo is the one that has been more time close to people. He's really looking at us. He's just a few feet away now. That is no ordinary horse. No, he's not. Thousands of years ago, it was wild herbivores, like these, and the others in the ancient rock art like deer and wild aurochs. They did the job of grazing the combustible plants and shrubs. Then until recent decades, it was sheep, but even they've gone because of the abandonment. But these horses are doing more than just suppressing fire by eating fuel. The hope is they'll change the entire look and diversity of this landscape. A mixture of habitats is the goal. Heterogeneity instead of homogeneity. It's often called a mosaic in ecology. A landscape that has a natural patchwork of different diverse ecosystems. And that's what rewilding is going to is going to bring like more like ancient forests to the territory and pastures, open areas. And this stuff, it was about to talk about that. This stuff is very, very important. What are we looking at here? Technically I think it's called a pile of shit, isn't it? That's exactly the technical name, yes. So yeah, is this important fertilizer, this horse manure? This is horse many super important fertilizer because you have here these fresh one, but if you look here, it's like completely dry, you know, what you see here is just a dry grass is coming back like all the organic matter already incorporating incorporated in the soil. So this is a way in which the organic matter is going to increase also because this manure has no chemicals in it. Horse manure, and the droppings from other herbivores relocated here will also help this region get out of that Arrested Development and move past the first successional stage. So horses, large herbivores are also natural, disperses of seed dispersers. And yeah. They're helping to.

"Abundant and dynamic place full of life. Even species like candidates that we think it is a wolf, a fish that we think it is a salmon. All of these animals portrait movement. And the coa from 28, 25,000 years ago, already humans were depicting this movement. There's a history here of this movement, different species and peoples moving through the landscape through the millennia. And all of this history, and even the valley itself was on the edge of being lost to the rising waters, if the dam was built. Therefore, there was this civil movement to stop the dam to save the engravings. And it was successful. And they stopped them and saved and created a park. It was recognized by UNESCO immediately as a World Heritage Site. The now protected coal valley became like a blank canvas upon which to paint a modern day version of wild Portugal. Like archeology saving ecology. And for Pedro. This is also a very personal mission. These are local and has a lot of pride in his home. From a small village close to the main city here, which is guard. A small village in the mountains instead of H three. His love for the place, and the way he was raised really influenced his path. When he was about 7 years old, he was out in the field close to here with his dad who introduced him to some biologists study in the Iberian lynx population. They showed him the work they were doing. And when we were going back home, I asked my father, what are those guys? Who are they? And he said, oh, those are the biologists. And I thought internally to myself, okay, that's what I want to be. I want to be a biologist. That was the day. Eventually left the area, went to school in Portugal's capital, Lisbon, and the Netherlands, then crossed the Atlantic and spent years in some vast and wild places, including Brazil and the United States. One of the few from my family and friends who left after high school who actually came back. So from the people which I grew up with, I'm kind of the exception, the one that came back. And I do understand why people don't come back. I mean, there's lack of opportunities for their training. So there's not much job opportunities. They need to their livelihood. The scale of the places he traveled to, especially the size of the nature reserves, inspired him, about the possibilities in Portugal, to really bring some natural balance back to a landscape abused by mankind for hundreds of years. We can look 50 or 60 and 70 years into the future and design a strategy that is beneficial for both the re welding of the landscape and the rejuvenation of the social fabric of this landscape. But there's something that's getting in the way of Pedro's plan to regrow the forest and bring new life to this region. Fire. This area is full of all kinds of fuel for it. We stop off to take a look at one of the problems, an old tree plantation. Decades ago, trees like this were planted to grow fast. A cash cow of timber. There are hundreds of tall pine trees or planted in neat rows. They're not a native species, and there's no wildlife in these forests. It's a monoculture. Nothing underneath them except to bed of dry pine needles, which is a huge fire risk. The bark itself is dry. And everything in here just feels like it's been baked by the sun for months. And it's all part of the problem. This is like a tinderbox waiting to go up. There are plantations of eucalyptus trees from Australia as well. Another incredibly flammable tree. To bring it back to health, what this area needs are not these non native plantations, but the natural forests that used to be here, and all the wildlife that comes with them. And what we're missing here is a fully grown forest. That's what this landscape should be covered with. And it didn't have the chance because it's burning too often. We continue driving down a very rough bumpy road lined with dry stone walls, and then we jump out and we walk till we reach another wall that crosses a hillside. And here, the entire valley, on the other side of the wall, is burned. A wildfire swept through here in the summer. This is the broom that is. All just completely dry, tender, black, broom is a native shrub, but it's also highly combustible. As far as I can see, the ground is blackened. Literally charcoal on the ground here. Charred rocks even. In an odd twist, rural abandonment is partly to blame for these fires. Farmers are not here anymore to graze the land, and the broom takes over the landscape. It's the perfect fuel for fire, and unfortunately there's a lot of it. It would happen in this case, specifically, is that the ignition start at the bottom of the valley. So it just rushed through the whole hillside very quickly. Only takes is a lightning strike or a flicked cigarette. I try and picture this unstoppable fire sweeping up the valley and consuming all that broom. Especially in the heat of a 100° summer. But then, when the rains start in the fall, all that broom starts to grow again, which might sound like a good thing at first. But the problem here is that I've seen this landscape exactly on this spot burn like this. Several times over. Really. And that that's the frequency that we're trying to diminish. So this is the problem. Too many.

"I think it was the silence, hey, I think I've triggered every dog in the village that's left. I'm here in Giotto, a little Portuguese village next to the coa river, 5 miles from the border of Spain. I say every dog that's left because this small town is practically empty. Pedro's brought me here to show me what's happening to the region. There are about 100 homes here, but nowadays, I think this is reduced to less than 20. Leaving permanently here, yes. Rural abandonment it's called, and it's left the place feeling like a ghost town. No kids running around. No sounds of farm animals. Shuttered windows, Mediterranean, Adobe roof tiles that have now faded. It is one is crumbling down. This used to be a really huge house and is now completely abandoned. You can still see the grapes that no one harvested. Yeah, just absolutely loaded with grapes on this vine tree and yeah, just sitting there rotting. And all around villages like this, there are hundreds of miles of stone walls built by hand using rocks that were picked up from the land by farmers to make room for their sheep and cattle pastures. Forests were cut down as well because it was all about having livestock on the land. The place screams hard physical labor. For thousands of years, this land was lived in and toiled as an agricultural region. But then, in the 60s, steep competition from the global market began to make farming completely unprofitable for locals, so people just abandoned the land. Now, that might seem like a good thing when it comes to rewilding. Fewer people means more room for nature, but it's not that simple. Rural abandonment has led to a cascade of problems for both the humans and the wildlife. As Pedro and I turn a corner on the cobbled street, we see an elderly man on loading some things from his truck. And I talk to him. He's in his 60s, wearing a brown flat cap, and as a friendly face. He's just arrived this morning from France. Really? Yeah. So I've got what he's no mental. So he was born here, and then migrated to France. All his life was there. And now he's retired. And now he comes back more often. The allure of high paying jobs in cities or abroad was very tempting for struggling farmers. So when he was young, it was a lot of work for little pay. And everybody felt like that. And a few of them risked to go abroad to France. And they came back showing that they earned earning some money abroad. And that influenced many people to go as well. And the influencing him as well to go. The man sits down next to us on a stone wall, with so few people around. He seems really happy to have a chat. He can remember a time when this village looked very different. There was lots of families with many siblings, so large families. And nowadays, there's none. There's only 5 residents nowadays. Wow, how many they used to be? More than 300. From 300 people to 5. Just gone. And this pattern continued for decades. At one point, 50,000 people a year were leaving Portuguese villages like this and moving to towns and cities or abroad. Portugal only has a population of 10 million people, so it's easy to imagine how that changed the feel of rural society here. And the ecology too. The old man's eyes wander for a moment, like he's remembering the past. He tells us about seeing plows in endless fields alongside the river. Everything, everything was everything was cultivated here in this village, the next village, both sides of the kua, everything. And everything was done by hand. So there were many hands on the ground working all the time. But no more. Most of the fields are left empty. So that abandonment of the active people from this landscape has changed the socioeconomic dynamics of the region. Farms go, then local businesses, bars, the village shop, and this evacuation over time has even impacted how this landscape looks. Some might look at it and see the abandon and see it that as a problem. I look at it as a liberation sometimes of a lot of large tracts of space that are not compatible with some activities. And our prime for nature to bounce back. It's this thinking that has brought Pedro and his team at rewilding Portugal together. There are young dynamic bunch of people, and they're all looking at this place through the same eyes. To possibilities. But all these possibilities were almost lost before they ever got started. In 1990, construction began on a large hydroelectric dam to flood the coa river valley. But in a fantastic twist of fate just before the valley was flooded, a local archeologist discovered some engravings. It turns out they were ancient Paleolithic rock art. Thousands of animal figures like deer and giant aurochs, a bit like an enormous bull on steroids and wolves, scratched into The Rock. This art was carved by Stone Age humans over several millennia, and really reveals the energy of an.

"It's October, and I'm journeying across the Iberian Peninsula by car. That's the Portuguese radio now. Just coming in right here on the border. I do love a good board across in must be because I'm a fan of bank robbery movies. I don't know. But this border takes me from Spain into northeast Portugal to witness a really interesting story that's unfolding. I'm on my way to meet a man who has a vision for rebuilding a dysfunctional ecosystem. After an hour of driving under a beautiful blue, Mediterranean sky. Wow. What a spot. I pull up a steep cobbled street into a village. Pedro? Pedro. It's nice to meet you. Welcome. And our rendezvous site is at a rather unexpected place. It's a perfect place for a castle, right? You can see all around here. Well, I think that was the purpose of building the castle here. Like something from a fairytale. The castle sits on top of a perfect thousand foot hill, with a view all around. We walk around the ramparts, it's blowing a Gale. So this border region between Portugal and Spain has been war zone throughout the Middle Ages. And these were the castles that defend the border. On each side. This is Portuguese biologist Pedro prata, who's leading a pretty remarkable movement here. Portugal sits on the western edge of Western Europe, nestled between Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, and famous for its explorers. That delicious rich fortified wine called port, and its history. Yeah, so we're getting into the castle. Through the main door. Oh, this is incredible. How old is this? So this is 13th century if I'm not mistaken, but Middle Ages, but for sure. He's brought me here to this castle because it's a fantastic vantage point to see all of the coa valley here in Portugal. But you can see on the horizon, lots of hills. And a deep canyon, that's the deep canyon of the duru and the coa to the south there. Of course, what we aim to do is to protect the river and all its surroundings, all the forests that feed the river, and the inhabitants of that forest. But it's hard to see many trees at all, just miles and miles of brush. The dense old forests that were here are now mostly gone, cut down and replaced with pastures for sheep and olive groves, generations ago, and now the shepherds and other farmers are abandoning this region in droves. This checkered history is led to a poor economy and brush instead of trees, and an explosion of wildfires. But Pedro has a new vision for those who still call this place home. I feel a great potential in this landscape to be a wildlife corridor. It already is, and if it reinforced in the coming decade, I envision that we will have the movement of animals, the wildlife, the great migrations coming back. As they did in the past, we have a chance here and the opportunity to bring that back. Re wild it, bring back the forest, ecosystems, and wild animals, and.

And when you're in Italy and you play Switzerland twice and twice you have penalty kick and twice you miss penalties and then you draw it home against Bulgaria. Well, you miss out on points that become crucial in the end. So this is nobody else's fault other than Italy. So while you may want to look at it and say, hey, well, may have better seating. Okay, great. Fantastic. What better sitting than you want than getting two penalties, all right? With opportunity to win games or beating Bulgaria at home. What else are you on?

"Hello and welcome in two ESPN FC. I'm Kay Murray. I am joined in the studio by LA Moreno and we will be starting tonight show by talking about the World Cup playoff draught for 2022 where the UEFA Nations learned the paths that they will be in and the big talking point is the fact that Portugal and Italy have been drawn in the same path, which means at least one of them will not be at next year's World Cup. Let's now bring in Frank Labeouf and Shaq at his slop as well to talk about this one to be honest. I don't think any of the neutrals would have wanted this to be the outcome, but if it comes down to it, we're looking at either Ronaldo and Portugal, not going to the World Cup or Italy, the defending European champions not going to the World Cup. Frank, what have you made of it? Why it's a real shocker. I mean, I mean, we are to show and we talked about that. Everybody agreed that Italy and Portugal would be deserving to go to the walk up well, assuming that they had they went through the playoffs. So I don't know what to say about that. You know, I think it's crazy, but it is due to their bad results that they don't go to the work of directly. So they have to fight now against each other to make sure that they secure a seat for the next World Cup. So it's that for suddenly Ronaldo because I think Italia has more chance to go to go to the local workup sorry than Portugal. It would be very sad to the world to not see which can be maybe the last time we can see Ronaldo in the World Cup. So it could be sad at the end of the day at the end of the playoffs that we can see Ronaldo not going to the walk up. Ellie, someone missed up here. Should it be better planning? Should there be better seeding? Or is it what Frank says that it's down to these teams and they've brought it on themselves? Well, yes. While there's an element of chance and the fact that they've been drawn together, the reason that they are in this position is because of their own shortcoming. So at this point, hey, look, let me tell you, you have to lay in the bed.

"But I think that the best rule you can get into a team is to get the players to take responsible for these kind of things themselves because we are a team. We know that if someone is not doing his stuff, indirectly, that is something to do with me and it's people and boys. We know that from our time now generation, they wear, for example, players who had too many kilos eating with a wrong stuff, drinking too much alcohol. Sorry, we have to get them out. Yeah, we can't drink 48 hours before a game. 47 and a half, you're all right. I think it's changed days. I remember I was late for a game. It's time for bridge. How late? Wow, the boys will get changed. Oh, okay. But I was nothing I could do about it, and this is why a lot of the preparation for games have changed.

"One is quite sure exactly what happened but at ten eighteen pm there was a loud crash. The seminars reported as sounding like metal and timber falling down. This probably a crane or one of the booms which had collapsed then. There was the sound of an explosion and then a fire about five. To seven seconds later there was a massive explosion that destroyed the entire facility. It was one of the largest explosions in history up until that point pilots in the air at the time saw a fireball three miles into the air. The blast was felt in boulder city nevada. Four hundred thirty miles away. There was damaged onto buildings in san francisco forty eight miles away debris landed over two miles away and the plane which witnessed it said it's all white hot debris shooting past it. At an altitude of seven thousand feet. It coastguard fireboat near the pier was thrown six hundred feet or one hundred and eighty meters away where it eventually landed in the water and sank. There were three hundred and twenty men and the peer when the explosion occurred all of them died instantly. Two thirds of the dead. Were african american enlisted men who were working on the dock. In fact this explosion by itself was responsible for fifteen percent of all of the african american deaths in the second world war. I've got a previous episode on the halifax harbour explosion during world war one. The portugual explosion wasn't quite as large. But it wasn't too far away the biggest difference and the reason why the fatalities were lower. Portugal is that there were no civilians on the base. There were two hundred and fifty other injuries and of the men who were killed only fifty one wherever identified an inquiry was launched only four days after the explosion and the ruling was that it was probably the fault of one of the enlisted men. Nothing was mentioned about the poor safety conditions and the lack of training
April, 1779: Spain Enters the War
"April seventeen seventy nine. France and spain signed the treaty of iran. Wes which effectively drew spain into the war. With britain for the past couple of centuries spain had been francis traditional ally and britain's traditional enemy while spain did not share francis enthusiasm for american liberty. It did harbor grudges against britain and welcomed an opportunity to settle some of them by entering the war in the late seventeen. Hundreds spain was near the height of its worldwide empire. Spain of course had been their first european power to colonize the americas following christopher columbus's revelation that an entire western hemisphere existed and was available to be conquered after columbus returned from his first voyage. Spain claimed sovereignty over the entire western hemisphere. It did so. Even though columbus only had limited information about a few islands in the caribbean about a year after columbus's return spain and portugal sign the treaty of tour to see us which essentially recognize spain's claims to all lands west of vertical line drawn through the atlantic ocean the treaty was designed to recognize portugal's claims to some islands in the atlantic while seating to spain all the unknown lands further west in fact unknown to both parties at the time. The line seated. What is today the eastern part of brazil to the portuguese which is why brazil became a portuguese colony. In truth though when the vast size of north and south america came to be understood there was no way. Spain would be able to occupy or defend its vast claims to the hemisphere britain france. The netherlands and other european powers were not parties to the treaty and did not recognize. Spanish claims to the entire western hemisphere but spain was the first to establish a colonial empire for more than a century. Spain conquered most of south and central america as well as many caribbean islands. It was not until the early seventeenth century that other european powers seriously began to consider american colonies of their own
The February Revolution in Russia
"The entrance of a bunch of socialist into the ministry and the endorsement of the coalition government by the soviet seemed to signal that the fragile period of dual power was drawing to a close the liberal and socialist wings of the revolution appeared to be combining under the banner of revolutionary unity. The man who most personally exemplified this new spirit of unity was alexander kerensky who had carved out a space for himself in both camps and was now serving as minister of war in the spring of nineteen seventeen. He was probably the single most energetically influential leader in russia. Today he will embark on an audacious plan he believes will permanently solidify. The gains of february rallied. The empire back to patriotic health and launch a new russia portugal aureus future in the spring of nineteen seventeen. The russian army would launch a major offensive to prove to themselves and to the world the revolution had not weakened russia but instead infused her with a mighty power as kerensky took over as minister of war in the first week of may nineteen seventeen the long and frozen winter approached the spring thaw and the question of how the february revolution would impact the war. Now had to be answered as we discussed last week now ex foreign minister pavel melia cough. Believe most of the anti czarist revolutionary energy that had been building since nineteen fifteen was driven by the catastrophic mismanagement of the war. And though melia cough let this analysis take him to the unsupported conclusion that there was nothing wrong with the composition of the army or the objectives of the war. Just its management. He was far from the only one who believed better run. War was meant to be one of the principal. results of the revolution. Kerensky himself was committed to the same idea but he believed the revolution would do far more than just shuffled around a few ministers and generals in kerensky view. The revolution had changed the very nature of the russian military. Infusing it with the new patriotic and democratic spirit that would propel it to glorious victory. Victory not on behalf of mir imperialist greed or territorial ambition but in the name of global freedom and global peace
