Wet Notes - 4-9-21
"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty
The Prague School of Rehabilitation and Principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
"I think for the purpose of this discussion. Let's assume a person has never heard of. Dns has never heard of the prague school or any of these things can you in a somewhat succinct. But not terribly brief manner. Explain to people how all of this school of rehabilitation coalesced around this idea of what we call. Dns going back to the founding fathers of the prague school and what these various insights were that each of them had and how that sort of came together dns dynamic neuro muscular stabilization. Kind of built on some pioneers of functional rehabilitation. There's many that have been part of the prague school rehabilitation. But i think talking about the influence on the development of dynamic muscular stabilization by professor powell whole lodge who runs the rehabilitation department at prague school. At this time. I think we need to go back. Post world war two cold war era. Nine thousand nine hundred fifties his wear prague school rehabilitation was was really founded and it was founded as part of the medical faculty of charles university in prague czech republic or formerly czechoslovakia now czech republic and being post world war two cold war era so they were in eastern europe behind the wall. That may have been a factor for. They're not reliance but tendency towards the use of of observation in both diagnostic diagnosis but observation and palpitation for diagnosis and treatment. All three of these pioneers neurologist. And who are the three. Lot of miranda kerr levitt and ballclub woida professor janda. He had a keen sense of observation and he formulated concepts and principles that tied into pasta habituation specifically the tendency for specific musculature tend towards tightness and other musculature to tend towards weakness. And he he termed this upper cross and lower cross syndrome. So for example with an upper-crust syndrome meaning the neck and shoulder region with demands of life and tendency towards paschel habituation such as with sustained seated postures There is a tendency towards the muscles in the back of the neck the exceptional muscles the external cloud asteroid muscle which is the muscle that also attached to the skull in down to their sterner curricular joint the pec muscles the upper traps that musculature with ten towards a tight meaner over activation other musculature in the upper extremity the radius which attaches to the ribs in the back of the scapula the deep neck flex irs the middle and lower traps would have a tendency to tend towards the weakness and with that tendency towards over utilization or hyper tenacity and underutilization in addition weakness. That would also he also recognized that that would affect the quality of movement throughout the kinetic chain and subsequently would lead to overload in specific areas throughout that kinetic chain so that was a big contribution on his
Opinion: Being successful is about more than pursuing a good idea
"Et. al say was up the fire nation. And what's something that you believe about becoming successful. Most people disagree with many believe nothing. In order to be successful.

Houston it's always about enforce. There's a lot that i want to focus on throughout this entire interview fire nation. But the one thing i wanna pull out about. What a alger said is patients. I mean all of them were brilliant but patients. It is such as something that today. I see more than ever people. Just don't have an seems like the younger generation. The less patience. I have so many people all the time coming up and saying. Hey john like. I've been doing this for two months and i'm not seeing any returns. Think any success and like it's been two months.

Security operations centers: a first principle idea.
"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm
Remember When? 2020
"Welcome to new challenges remaining our usually annual most years we get around to it remember when episode four twenty twenty. I've been rothenberg. Always remember my dear friend courtney win. Hi courtney how are you. I'm doing well then. And how are you happy. December happy december to you as well. We were just sort of talking before we started recording about how this like year feels very different for this show. Like remembering things experiencing things was very different in twenty twenty and there's obviously know like a very clear break on in the episode about in chronologically when we stopped when we were going to things and we stopped going to things we experienced things remotely and in person. So i'm just curious before we forget started like what was this exercise of. Try and get notes together or wherever for twenty twenty. How how did it feel in vague terms. Yeah i think the initial challenge for me was trying to divorce. How i felt about the twenty twenty tennis season literally the encore results and the story lines and the narratives of what would be normal tennis. You know under any other circumstance trying to divorce that or untangle that in my feelings about that from my feelings about two thousand twenty as a year and it you know. I don't anybody who has listened to. Ncr is throughout you know since february knows about you know the arc and the struggles. I think both of us have had with respect to once. The shutdown came and once so much uncertainty hit the tennis tour but even more so so much uncertainty hit our lives in addition to just living in the midst of a deadly global pandemic that it was just hard to care about what was happening after march. And maybe obviously. I think that that you can talk about it separately from your experience for myself. There was an uptick of that once tennis returned so once we got back to to to to work for me effectively in palermo and palermo rolled into prague and progress into lexington rolled into cincinnati new york. A and you know. It was really nonstop but my memories of january and february so being in australia and then being in doha which was my final tournament site are so much more vivid and crisp and clear in my head compared to the effectively. What eight weeks or so of tennis smith longer than that. I suppose but but tennis that we got once we returned in july. It's all very much a mushy pile of potatoes From from august on yet. Because for me. I feel very similarly and for me. It's weird because usually did remember when episodes the tricky parts. The hazy parts is january. Right is the beginning of the year. The stuff at ten eleven months has passed since we've experienced it of piecing together like. Oh yeah i remember this that whatever. And that's still kinda the case in twenty twenty like those are still like descendant memories but they're also in some ways the clearest ones we have because those are what we were there in person for. And i'm thinking about how experienced the french open which was the most recent major tennis event right. It was me sitting at my desk and my computer. Which is something i've been doing. You know in various forms since in this room since april whether it was binge-watching british game shows or watch enough it all kind of just like in the same place in senior doesn't change and we're so used to these rhythms of being along the travelling circus tour and having this scenery shift all the time. Even if the players say the same the people say the same largely lake having it. Be a moving picture in here. Only very small part of the picture. Move ray at our screens moved and so that makes it like it. It makes it much smaller. If like you're if you're watching. Were staring an envelope. Only the postage stamp is changing. It's still the same envelope and that's sort of how it feels for parts of it. So it's it's a less a lot of it's going to be a lesser visceral memories. We have things like you know even like big things like jovic getting defaulted from the us open. Let's say like a big like remember where you were when you did. That was like yeah. It was my room like it's very pinky and the brain. Like what are you going to do tonight. What are we gonna do tonight. brain. We're gonna do what we do every night. Pinky we're going to try and take over the world. It this is. The pandemic has kind of felt like that in a lot of ways. It's like what were you doing. What i did the entire pandemic. That's what i was doing when x happened when this happened. It's just like you know it. It's yeah it's it's tough. It's tough to sort it out and you're right. I think that the lack of change of scenery and just and you know as just common sense like the lack of electricity. That we in an adrenalin data today. One that we are used to enjoying not enjoying like a good time but like that we get the benefit of the adrenaline. Were running on fumes during slams. I mean like it's exhausting. It's a very high stress environment but it. It helps you to your job and here. It's like rolling out of bed every day at one thirty. A m forcing myself to go to sleep at four. Pm the night before like all of this sort of stuff you know it For weeks on end trying to get excited about something. That's happening in the middle of the night like i'm so clearly you know when we're in australia. We know what's happening in the middle of the night in the us. But it's not the middle of the night for us there but here like covering the french open at four five o'clock in the morning west coast time. It was hard. it was hard to motivate. And therefore you're distracted you're distracted you can't really focus on thing that's happening. I'm not a neurologist. Obviously but i do feel like there has to be some sort
Do Not Adjust Your TV
"Their feet a lot of the time though. It's simply a matter of broadcasting a stronger signal than the station is the equipment can be sophisticated but it can also be made of scrap. Parts from things like ham radios. The motives vary widely from frustration. To it's just a prank bro. to we don't even know what heads up. There will be real clips in this episode and some of them are weird with a capital. W t f the earliest signal intrusion anywhere in the world that we know of happened back in nineteen sixty six in the soviet city of kaluga and almost triggered a nuclear war. If you know only one thing about world history in the second half of the twentieth century it would probably be the cold war decades of itchy trigger finger tension between the us and the us are one night. The regular broadcast was suddenly interrupted by a seemingly official emergency warning that nuclear war had just broken out with the united states. Many viewers took the message seriously running for cover and seeing their final prayers thankfully as what happened with stanislav petrov. Nineteen eighty-three when he correctly guessed that the early warning system was malfunctioning. When it reported incoming us bombers you can hear all about that way back in episode eleven for want of a nail government. Officials weren't quick to react a good thing to at the time. The ussr had over seven thousand nuclear weapons at their disposal. Ducted eighteen nuclear weapons tests that year alone. The us had nearly four times as many. But that's neither here nor there. It would only take fifty hiroshima sized bombs to plunge the world into nuclear winter. The soviets weren't messing around. If one official had thought another department had put out jim. It message about the us attacking. That could've been the start of a very fast extinction level event thankfully. The officials didn't panic at least not officially it would later be found that a teenager had hacked the station. His name was never released possibly because of his age and possibly to save him from retaliation from his neighbors or maybe it was a made up. Cover story tin foil hat. Nuclear war became a running theme for signal takeovers and it wasn't confined to the cold war in june of two thousand seven a show called panorama was part of the regular programming in the city of prague. In what is now czechia. The show was meant as a sort of tourist program to display calm scenic areas around the country. Like a tv travel brochure. This particular episode started off as usual with long. Lingering shots of picturesque locales around prague. Without warning the screen was bathed in a blinding flash and mushroom cloud began to climb into the sky above the city. This would be disturbing enough to see on its own but panorama was usually aired live meaning terrified viewers. At home were left. They had just witnessed a nuclear strike on their hometown. The hijacking was seamless. There had been no static or breaks in the tv signal. It was so realistic. In fact that even government officials and authorities believed the explosion was real. Luckily it doesn't take many phone calls or glances out of a window to confirm that there is not in fact a mushroom cloud rising above a blast crater in the middle of the city authorities soon turned their energy to finding the perpetrators. It would eventually be discovered that a guerrilla artistic collective called sto hoven which is known for their extravagant hoaxes and pranks were the culprits. Apparently this was a piece of performance art whether or not making hundreds of people think they're about to die.
Team Secret Cleans Up At Esports Awards
"Team secret for the e sports awards that i did not watch at all They one team of the year. They won player of the year which was nisha and coach of the year. Which is hain. is that all correct syndrome. Correct what do you think of that. So teamster again no. Ti this year and other other games have had the kind of their big tournaments some of them at least league for example but secret essentially winning the last. If you wanna take out the last few weeks has been seven plus money. I wanna say eight events in a row. Yeah seven months. They want everything just winning. Literally everything would you. I mean obviously our daughter bubble. So we're gonna agree right. The doda words everything. i would agree with. I don't know if i would put nietzsche's player of the year. I think it's hard to pick one. Yeah but he would definitely be one other candidates right. So i mean as it always is with these multi game award shows right. It's easy for us to say that these are great choices because we don't follow the other games that are part of it nearly as much to be honest with you. I don't even know which games are eligible to win in the sports category. If it's dodo leagues he has go rainbows. Six call of duty. Like i don't know what games are included in this is. It's hard to imagine another team in any game being as dominant the secret where this year. I think that's fair to say like you need to basically when everything right and not only that but the competition needs to be tougher which is unlikely once again because of corona because you know arguably secret even had a really tough region to play and while this was happening wasn't like it was just free easy wins because the region was week or something still tons of teams so it's super impressive I'm happy coaches got a bit more recognition so gretz to heen as well. I think he's really elevated this team to the next level they just started owning after he joined. I feel like it made a pretty big difference at least down the stretch Ceo good stuff. The thing about these awards shows though is. I don't know how much stock to put in the general. It's always cool for the teams to get recognition like this But i wish maybe it was a little bit more transparent a little more defiant. How we're going to segue into this next kind of mini topic of what do you think of award shows for e. sports in general because from my perspective i'm used to watching the oscars. I don't really watch a lot of other award shows at all but the oscars. I watch every single year. It's an event you know it's fun to watch. Even if i hate all of the movies which is sometimes the case that they just pick like the criteria just doesn't make sense to me sometimes like these artsy fartsy like movies will sometimes win for no reason. According to me but again like what criteria are they using. I don't know maybe you just don't have any taste. No that's definitely. I love in bruges. It's a great movie. Don't try to get out obligation. But what do you think from east perspective because when you look at the movies just as you know. Let's just do a one to one here. It's pretty clear. Even without knowing the exact criteria it's movies of this category but for east. There's just it feels like it's not as black and white. There's just so many different games. What is even considered an e sport. Technically speaking like. I don't even know the answer that question. That's the thing i mean. I guess the analogy of the comparison is really good though because in movies. There's also like it's super subjective. Right like what do you consider. A good movie is very different. From one person to the next head would be considered true. I suppose what it's defined as an eastport is a game that yeah but how many how big of a following doesn't need to have how significant to the price does need to be if i host a tournament in prague for one hundred bucks on eastport best escort because then then a lot of things could have won but now i i don't know what the criteria is and i think that's what we're probably agreeing on right now is that Maybe maybe are transparent about it. I just haven't seen it. I'm not saying that's not the case But yeah. I don't even know what sport is because like you said if it's just money than short that's anything could be in eastport if it needs to be x. amount of player base and have tournaments consistently running like whatever the case may be but either way. I like the idea of it. The fact that this is. I believe the fifth year in a row that their continued to do it is cool people show up to the event. There were ranked tuxes. They're trying to make it. That's where i don't like it. Actually they're trying to make it to. I don't know if mainstream is the right word but they're just trying too hard to copy everybody else like just let people show up in fucking sweatpants like were gamers man. Nobody wants to wear a goddamn suit. Unless you're a fucking psychopath syndrome okay. Being honest a lot of people do like dressing up on occasion. I think they don't like having to wear a uniform. It's like that all the time but for special occasions i think people like to do something extra like but honestly now that you it.

Live not by Lies and the Danger of Soft Totalitarianism
"Four describes. How after throwing. Peter jon jail for teaching and proclaiming. Jesus the resurrection of the dead. The san hadrian demanded they not speak or teach at all in the name. Of jesus peter bluntly replied we cannot help but speak about what we have seen in hurt throughout history. Of course. Christians have faced demands to be silent throughout history. They've refused the word martyr. In fact is derived from the greek word that means witness and live not by lies a manual for christian dissident blogger and author. Rod dreher thinks that christians in the west are now entering a season. Not only have to decide whether or not we'll be silent. We have to decide whether or not we will allow ourselves to be forced to go along. With what is not true with lies like those who endured the hardest days of communist eastern europe western christians face a totalitarian future though he admits the totalitarianism talibanism of today is different. In a number of ways dreyer thinks it is still the correct word to describe the all encompassing ideologies of our day that seek to control not just our actions but our thoughts. Of course we don't face sort of state sponsored violence persecution or physical coercion. That many many others have throughout history. One doesn't end up in a gulag for criticizing the new sexual orthodoxy or for refusing to use the demanded pronouns but some have lost jobs. Some have lost future. Some have lost their degree programs. Others like cake artist jack phillips or floors bear. No stutzman have all but lost their livelihood in our current context. What dreyer calls soft atallah. -tarian ism is mostly administered. Not by the state but by corporations and other institutions that are run by managerial elites are social media profiles our smartphones and our smart speakers provide these managerial elites in corporations with an unprecedented ability to monitor what we say in what we do. China which is also an expert of course in hard to tolerate. -tarian ism is an example of how soft -tarian could proceed especially their social credit system which determines who's allowed to buy to sell to travel based on their social behavior here even as more instruments of technological surveillance or put into place an additional layer of enforcement comes from corporate america and our recent conversation for the breakpoint podcast rod dreher pointed to the corporate reaction to indiana's religious freedom restoration. Act that dates back to two thousand and fifteen. He sees it as a key moment of cultural transition. I do too though. Indiana's legislation was essentially identical to its federal counterpart corporations responded by threatening economic sanctions. Some corporations closed down offices in the state. The ncaa which is based in indianapolis threatened to move the final four basketball tournament and then when the christian owners memories pizza expressed support for the measure they were bombarded with negative online reviews and even had to close down temporarily because of all the threats of violence during the controversy a man whose mother had grown up under the hard to teheran ism of communism wrote to roger and told him that his mom saw parallels to what had happened in eastern europe since then many others from across europe told their own observations. Many of these moving stories are included in the book. In fact the interviews with christians who remain faithful under communist tyranny. That rod includes in. This book are worth reading. Even if you aren't convinced by his comparisons between their day hours above all these dissidents such as father thomas loft colaco vic a jesuit priest. Who was responsible for an underground church network and czechoslovakia. Have a great deal to teach us about what it means to live. Not by lies. We have much to learn from the bender family from prague about how to categorize our own children when everything it seems as pointing them away from the truth and we have much to learn from people like russian christian dissident alexander. Oh garage knockoff. And of course sultanate's in an hovel and so many others will go down in the annals of church history many as

Travel to Zagreb
"Let's start with a look at a European capital that's often overlooked by the beach crowd who enjoy Croatia's crystal clear coastline. But miss out on the scene in its capital city. It has a distinctively modern take on old world charm and it's just a few hours inland. To tell us about saga we're joined now by local guide Darya goateed. She's joined by Ben Curtis who writes about the Balkan regions elaborate history and thinks that Croatia's best period may be now Darya in Ben Welcome my pleasure. Same. Thank you for having. US Doria. You're from Zagreb your guide in Zagreb, a lot of Americans no Dubrovnik. Venice and a lot of Americans know the Anna Zagreb is right there in the middle. What should we know about Zagreb? Nanna. Saga is I would say the mix of. All these big capitals around and all these much better known cities around from historical perspective It was influenced by different cities and countries. So we have a little bit of all of that. What's an example? How is it a little bit of? How is it a little bit of Italy says it a little bit of the Slavic World So? obas part of the hops Burke monarchy later austro-hungary for few hundred. Years. And then architecture in town is very much what we would call out through nor Central European. So the mixture of Hungarian hungarian-austrian. We don't have much Dubrovnik textures that. Is Zog. Is completely different about the cuisine that scene is also very influenced by Austria but not only that we do eat struggles and. A lot of meat and potatoes and then on the other hand we also eat. A lot of Pasta beat some. We are very sensitive on coughing, and then we also have the Turkish influence because arguable also for few centuries, just about forty, five, fifty miles Sir north from the Ottoman Empire boarder okay. It's a crossroads release across through the s the Ben Curtis here in American who has a fascination and a deep interest in this part of Europe how would you say Zagreb is unique Zagreb is unique for being this gem of a central European capital. So everybody can measure saying they know Budapest, Vienna, they know Prague, but here's this. Gym of a historical city that hardly any American visits right and even though Zagreb stars rising on the Tourism Front these days but you can go there and it's not gonna be jammed with busloads of tourists from all over the place you're not gonNA hear a lot of other North American accents and you're going to be able to experience the city where the fabric of locals you're going to be sitting in a cafe with mostly other people from Zagreb, and that's great and it's hard to find that in Dubrovnik are in Vienna these days a year. Exactly. So if you had two nights in in one Danes, is there enough to keep you busy. Yeah. For sure I think, what would you do if you're gonNA show me around for a day the it's a great kind of one day stop if you're coming in and out for some of the coast. So Zagreb surprisingly has some of I think are the best museums of its kind in Europe now they're quirky right? You don't. Go desire grab for the Louvre or something like that. But you go to Zagreb for these unusual small museums like the Museum of naive art, which is great sort of not formally trained perhaps painters but really characteristic art with peasant themes. The famous one which is kind of made headlines around the world is a museum of broken relationships which is filled with these stories of couples who have broken up the objects that they have Meant something to them and they've given it this museum and so it's just a really interesting kind of poignant sometimes hilarious trip through people's relationships. So when we think of this naive art, I love this idea because you go to most art galleries in Europe Bennett, the opposite of naive arted this refined fully embraced high-society art but naive art is by definition just unschooled hasn't Sir Working People that just had a passion for painting. Exactly but are often very, very talented even if they didn't train at the academy or something like that but they're expressing the lives and cultures and artistic visions of people from the rural areas and it's genius really an undiscovered genius that happen to come out of the farm community or something absolutely. I love that museum by the way that that's really one of the unique things in Europe and it is in the capital of Croatia Zagreb.
RegioJet launches train to Croatia
"Was clear early on the covid nineteen pandemic was going to be a disaster for the aviation business, and so it has proved him. It was clear almost as instantly that might be an opportunity for rail travel, and there is at least one indication. This suction has also been proved correct this summer check operator regional jet launched an overnight service from the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the Adriatic coast of Croatia and sold sixty thousand tickets on a hundred and twenty trains join from. Liana with more on this by Molecules Boca's correspondent Guide Alani. Going Festival it struck me anyway at least as an enthusiast. Rail travel and overnight rail traveled. There wasn't an overnight service from Prague Bratislav it to the Croatian coast seemed we'd so is anybody surprised by how successful this has been? I don't know if you look at it in terms of numbers sixty thousand passengers that's getting on for a tenth of all the check tourists who visited. Croatia this summer I mean in a normal season, the be eight, hundred, thousand checks going to the Croatian coast to call it all coast apparently when they're advertising it in the Czech. Republic. So, you're right. It was almost a market waiting to be created a to take that proportion of the passengers going from the Czech, republic, to Croatia, and that's a really stunning success. Because as you say, it wasn't even before and you couldn't actually got a direct line or we was a bit of a struggle as I recall to get a direct line from Lugano to react up, which is where the train was ending up and the train from the Czech Republic on radio jet jet whatever you WANNA call them. That was going through Lubiana so it could potentially be quite handy for me in the future. Is there a perception do you think that people feel like whether it's scientifically the case or not but feel like trains are currently a safe away to travel I guess there's a a feeling that you can open a window that you're not cooped up and breathing recycled air and having to be strapped in neck in close proximity to other passengers. The. Mind be that and it would depend on the train. Wouldn't it? I, mean th that's west. Serbia's trains would be a big advantage which I know you've traveled. that. The clapped-out old rolling stock with opening windows. So mean if I were working for the Serbian railways right now be saying, Hey, our windows open and. Off You go guys as much ventilation as you want I, think regional jets have been trying to. have themselves be marketed as a little bit more upscale even though that ticket prices are very cheap. They've been buying rolling stock from Australian railways and doing atop and You know the the coaches which were second at first class on Austrian railways running as second-class on radio jet trained. So that actually trump be comfortable, not just cheap cheerful and well ventilated and think at the time as well. The the very low numbers of coronavirus infections. In both the Czech Republic and Croatia, seven people talked about travel corridors will what's more Colorado like the train it literally has a corridor on a very often how important will this have been to Croatia this summer pasta because obviously like everywhere in the world reliant on tourism and the Adriatic coast of course, you're certainly reliant on tourism it will have been devastating is this been at least a little bit of a cap on the losses? Absolutely it's helped enormously and the architects were very good as well. If you can imagine these trains arriving Rica and disgorging at every turn hundreds of check tourists getting onto coaches to take them to other places on the Croatian coast. This was the way of saying we're safe and those pictures made it into the international media and as a result Kara's tourism season was down but it wasn't a disaster. God. bacchus correspondent. Thank you as always for joining us.
Growing Your Photo Business with Dixie Dixon
"Able to welcome back to another episode of this week in photo I'm your host. Frederik. Van Johnson today I have the honour and pleasure of sitting down with the illustrious Nikon shooting. Dixie Dixon, she talked about world. He's got he's working on what letter here we're GonNa talk about Nikon and all that good stuff dixie welcome to the show. Are you doing amazing thanks so much for that great intro I. Appreciate it. It's all true. It's all. You're awesome. I'm excited to be here today and chat with you. Cool. Well, let's talk about stuff. So you know we've just you know full disclosure you and I did an interview before over on the sky loon behind the scene podcast that I also host but I wanted to invite you onto this show is well because I want to. kind of slightly different direction and. Introduce you to this week and photo audience as well as the behind the scene audience if you subscribe to behind the scene search for it and go subscribe to that one too. So Yeah. Good stuff. Who is Dixie Dixon? Ukraine. So I've seen your name in fact. I. was just doing a livestream with a friend of mine who's also a Nikon shooter and I said I gotta go I. GotTa Hang Up because I'm getting ready to talk to Dixie Dixon and he's like I was like, have you heard of Dixie Dixon? He's like Have I heard of Dixie Dixon. It's like, have you heard of Prince? So. Tell us how did you get from where you were to being kind of a household name in the in the photography world? I appreciate that so much. Gosh it's been a really crazy adventure. I've had photography jobs. So I started out shooting the cheesy little league pictures shot with film actually was the Nikon F G camera, and so we'd be doing all those cheesy soccer ball like posing with a soccer balls and Just, the team photos and stuff like that, and then I ended up joining the yearbook staff and my image ended up making the cover of the yearbook. So for me, it was like a way to get out of my shell a little bit. I'm very much a sort of an introvert. So it was sort of felt rebellious and helped me get to know people and communicate and have fun and so that for me was like a moment. Wow maybe I could actually do this for a living. So I ended up going off to college I would have loved to majored in photography, but I really thought. Maybe I should figure out the business so I can actually figure out how to make a living doing this. So I ended up studying. Entrepreneurship at TCU and fell in love with the business side and then I ended up studying abroad with a world renowned fashion photographer I literally googled fashion photography study. Abroad. And there was one program through Syracuse University. So I got to go and study with Jeff Licata and listen over in London and Prague and do my first big fashion shoot, and that is when I really fell in love with the fashion photography side of things. So yeah, it's fun adventure I felt like it was yesterday but it's It's crazy how fast time flies and I got a job sheeting TV show and it just all came together. I have so many questions like I'm I'm curious how it works from. A lot of a lot of the twitter audience. Sure as the same question like the. One one path to success as a photographer seems to be fashion right? You got to be a fashion slash commercial photographer. You gotta be that person walking on said and you're in charge and you know the House music stumping in the background and models are doing their thing. There's a wind machine. Blowing. And somebody's up there like stevie nicks with the white thing. So how do you? How do you get there like what's what's the path from leaving school in entrepreneurship going through the internship and seeing how it's done from behind the scenes to building a brand like your brand and being sponsored and representing brands like Nikon? Yes. So it's been I always feel like as an entrepreneur you think you're just GonNa, go a nice gradual progression upward, but it's like. It's an interesting. It's an interesting journey if you will. There's ups and downs along the way. I. Mean my first few years I was shooting everything I was shooting weddings and portrait's and product. If anyone called me to do a shoot I knew how to do it. I said Yes to almost everything yeah. Just to just to pay the bills and whatnot so I ended up up to different websites My fashion website and then my commercial website I mean my wedding website and portrait website. So basically, when people would reach out and they wanted portraits, weddings, I was sent him to that website, and then all the fashioned stuff on my fashioned website was all three work that I had shocked my portfolio. So ultimately, you have to show the type of work that you WANNA be shooting. So I was wanting to shoot the fashion work so you have. To, go out and shoot that work, and then you're gonNA, eventually start attracting those type of clients. So then I started shooting for modeling agencies, they would do like paid portfolio shoots for their models. It started out as free portfolio shoots and then they ended up paying me to shoot their models for awhile and do that quite a lot and then that led to like two boutiques and showing them my work and ask him if I could collaborate.

I i very rarely met people who <hes> work in manhattan that brag about the bronx and this guy is passionate about the bronx and so him he and i have really interesting discussions about local stuff and what's going on in his neighborhood and in office fascinating to me so i think like just just having that experience. It's kind of opened. My eyes a little bit. I think i've been a very leisurely traveler to where i'm like. Oh let's go see everything <hes> and i think there's good things that come from that <hes> but i i think also maybe slowing it down a little bit and being like hey. I'm just gonna go ride the subway for an hour and just see where i walk around and end up is a good thing and go to a grocery store go away and if the m._t._a.'s working particularly poorly not day you might only get three three stops or you might end up on an old one thousand nine hundred train or something you never know jason rabinowitz posted something and i was just like yeah i think they had like one hundred year old train that they pulled out of the museum to run on in line that was closed down in recently like they cleaned it up so they could run. It's crazy but <hes> i encourage people to just maybe a maybe we're doing this whole will to <unk> wrong. It's hard if it's your first trip somewhere and you want to like get the highlights and see everything and make sure you quote unquote done that city entity. It's hard to say you know what i'm actually going to skip going to move. I'm gonna go to paris. I'm just not gonna go in any museums. That's hard for me but okay. Let's it's not hard for me. I still never been living living. I've been to paris <hes> musee orsay. I'd find much less. It's quieter. It's nicer. It's used to be a train station so that's awesome. It's way less crowded anyway but also just like museums aren't necessarily thing but i the i i certainly understand the concept of gotta do the city. We've gotta hit the highlights. These are all all the things you're supposed to say. Yeah you know until my sixth or seventh trip to paris. I'd never gone up to soccer and in some ways that was a good thing because the first time i went and one of the guys accosted me to buy something i almost punched him because he grabbed me so maybe it was good that i hadn't been earlier and i might have punched him on his trip when i was you know less sedated but at the same time i now when i go into town online i've learned what i like about <hes> gary nord and that neighborhood and i'm pretty comfortable around there and i spent more time in that area and that means staying close to a soccer cougar and going up there from time to time so i got it becomes a little bit of learning what you like and finding a neighborhood..

"Well, those are some of the theories that that we've talked about in in a lot of the interviews that we had today those will be coming out in bonus content episodes, but there's two things that could be going on here. First of all, it's the area of Prague. It's not Prague. And this could be a very to age-old Republican trick of semantics right where he wasn't in Prague. But he was in Prague minor, right? And he's like wasn't in Prague. Nope. Wasn't me prog ish. Yeah. You were prog as it and. And a lot of sense. Like, I went back to Phoenix for the holidays and my mom lives in moon valley, right? Which is in Phoenix. But somebody would be like to go to Phoenix. Nope. Because in my head. I'm like Zinnemann valley. Yeah. And that would make sense for Cohen to do that. I wasn't in Prague, you know, it's just right outside. And that's where the triangulation came from. And the other is that his phone was there without him or a phone registered in his name was there without him. Because as we know when Cohen's shit was raided his hotel has a home in his offices by the FBI this past April. I think can't remember it's been a long time. They confiscated sixteen burner phones. That's right. Which leads me to believe Coen doesn't understand how burner phones work like you're supposed to get rid of him after he hoards them. So he could have been responsible for the burner phones for the Trump team. And he put them in his name in other smart move. And maybe it was junior revoke that was over there or somebody else was sent to make these payments and had these burner phones with them, but the Russian intelligence, they call it sig int and Hume int which is signal. Engi- human intelligence says that eastern European intelligence agencies picked up an intercepted conversations between Russians rush into Russian that Cohen was in Prague. And that's what led them to investigate the cell, phone tower painting and all that other. According to these sources for full sources. Well, I those are all compelling theories like him being prog Jason him not being there being in charge of the burners. Any of them would make him were complicit. Yeah. But you can put beans on the fact, and I put beans on this. I guess this is conjecture conjecture, but you can put beans on it a phone registered to Michael Cohen was in Prague in the summer of sixteen twenty sixteen. Yeah. That's what it is bottom line. Well, how who what was surrounding it? How that happened? We'll find out. I don't know. Yeah. I think he was there. I saw an interesting theory on Twitter that was basically molar knows everything. But Cohen isn't they're not divulging anything explicitly. So they don't throw off the trail of any other investigations that are going on. Basically. I I liked that theory. But I also have an issue in if Muller had asked and not to say anything he wouldn't say, no, he would just say nothing. Okay. He wouldn't say he certainly wouldn't say I can't confirm or deny my visits or not visits because you're you went if you said, yeah. Yeah. I don't see Muller telling anyone to lie to the public. Right. I think the burner phone being in someone else's hands is most probable, that's what my beans there on. Yeah. And another weird theory. I heard too is that in like some sort of weird folding attempt where you put a message into a phone shut it down send it somewhere and have opened it up and read the message. So that it's not sent through, you know, Interweb radio waves house late travelling light travels on the speed of travels on a beam of light intrigued, nobody so, you know, it doesn't hit any internet towers, or whatever or, you know, internet IP addresses. Okay. So you can't follow it. But then that would mean that Coen forgot to put it in airplane mode. So that when the phone was opened and turned on at pinged his cell tower. Like, you you're supposed to if you do that you're supposed to put it in airplane mode. And it doesn't go being being I'm here. Right. Either way. He he messed up, but the Russians say and steel says that he was there. And so I kinda think he was there. Yeah..

That but had not been to vici- rod quite enjoyed our trip out there not too difficult to get to public transportation, some great views of the city and almost no tourists. Derek this to say about Prague Prague was probably my favorite of the places. We were I also think maybe that could be because I was there longer than the other cities we were at, but in general, I think because it was small and compact, you could see a lot more it just had a little bit more to it all in one area, and you could really get a lot bang for your buck. If you will one place in Prague, you think everybody should go to. I say the museum we all went to museum of communism. Yeah. They museum of communism. Definitely was something that I saw. And you think? Yeah. Maybe I'd go there, but I really appreciated the modern Ness of that. They did a really good job with the setup of the museum. And how it looked and the displays the videos and everything so that was quite surprised for me. I didn't get there this time. But from the pictures that I saw it's larger than the last time, I visited I note has moved. So I wish I had some that whole area. And I enjoyed the churches for me I had like a a religious epiphany in one of the churches in Prague site feel like I kind of left part of my heart. There are lady before the snow. So I definitely say go there something maybe everyone will have a religious epiphany. I don't know. Maybe it's just me. Me. That's where by the communism museum that whole area. It was really cool. I ended up seeing a little dual busking girl group there gonna call twenty minutes, and they were fantastic the day that I went I ended up buying a CD of theirs, and was overwhelmed a really great it had the markets right there. The tramlines came through secret hop wherever you wanted to go afterwards. That was just a really cool part of town that you wouldn't have thought because it wasn't the old town square in Dirk mentions the old town square, which is very beautiful in Prague, the old town square the Charles river bridge the castle, but if you wanna see those without hordes of tourists, you really need to get up early and do that. If you want to get pictures without crowds of tourists. We also did two things that we're going to reference later we did a food festival in Prague that was really just aimed at the locals way up on the hill above the castle. And then we. Also did a side trip to Putin. Hora Couteau horizon UNESCO world heritage site, which had a beautiful church which will talk about. And then also probably best known for the bone church. This is an awesome where there are the bones of tens of thousands of people their skulls in piles appear mids, but then they've also taken some of the bones in use them to make art Derek. And I had this conversation about could no Hora. And also the art of L funds. Muka who is an art nouveau artist. One thing that I was really happy about that. I didn't know that it was gonna work out was Luca. And the fact that prog now has the whole Slav epic on display. I don't know how long that's going to be on display. That's the tricky thing. Yeah. That's too bad. Because I drank the Luca Kool-Aid and with super in love with him beforehand. But like I was at the museum. I. Could've spent four hundred dollars in that place. But seeing that was really great. And I know beforehand, it was it's in Japan. It's in ver-. No, it's off here. It's gotta figure that out. I hope so in you were at the muka museum..
