"And welcome to the Jimbo hadn't shown from Westwood one radio as I was saying. A few weeks back, I should be back on the radio and good to certainly have on our first night back at Terry savage The money Maven of a personal finance high Terry. Hey, kimbo, sounding great. Glad to be here. Well, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It's good to have you on tonight and good to talk about various things regarding the economy. We thought we would start out with the inflation. It's a topic that you've been talking about of late. Funny thing, although maybe not with your level of expertise, the rest of us have been talking about it as well. And I was very taken with the one recent column you wrote. Fixing inflation, well, let's hear more about that. Well, unfortunately, there's no easy fix. There's no set formula. The way to fix it, you don't have to question it's worth this inflation coming from. Part of it's all the money that was created, put into the economy to save us from the pandemic. And part of it's from shortages of everything. Go order car today. I mean, you just can't go in the dealer lot and haggle. You have to order a car and hope they have the chips to make it. So a lot of stuff is in very short supply, whether you're building home and you need new windows, whether you want a car, all kinds of supply chain. That's what they call it. Distortions ever since the pandemic. That means there's not enough stuff around, but people have money because my goodness gracious unemployment is low. And that's pushing the prices of everything up and that's what's going on in terms of inflation. And the fed has figured out the only way they can bring that inflation down inflation, which is rising prices that really hit lower income people and seniors on fixed incomes. The hardest one, all the basics go up. So the fed bound and determined, as you heard, the fed chairman said this past week, we are going to get inflation back down to 2%. It's now over 9%. And the way they do it is by raising rates, slowing the economy and cutting demand people out of work maybe even can't find stuff. And that's how they fix inflation. Not even if I try to, if I try to parallel park the ocean liner Queen Mary, I'm probably going to dent a few fenders, okay? It's one thing to say, okay, I've got a park this big ship here by this dock. It's something else to do so gently. And again, the problem, of course, is that, okay, you need to cool the economy down, but just enough so that you can cool down the inflation, cool it down too much, and you started a recession. Now that sounds like a pretty delicate thing to do and I'm not sure that if I'm at the controls of the Queen Mary, especially me, I know nothing about the controls of the queen, Mary. I'm going to dent offender. I'm not going to be able to parallel park that thing. That is the fed, well, quite frankly, capable of adjusting the economy with interest rates just enough. To cool down inflation. But not enough to start a recession. Can they can they do that with any guarantee of success? You remember the fairytale this porridge is too hot. This porridge is just right. Look, the fed acknowledges that this is going to take a delicate touch. There is no rule book. This is unlike previous inflation. And they don't know. They acknowledge the fed chairman acknowledged that that will probably mean rising unemployment. But he says and rightly so the pain of bringing down inflation is nothing compared to the pain of not bringing down inflation of people getting into the system. See, inflation gets into the system. It gets into the system in terms of built in costs, energy. We know oils come down a lot. We actually know that interest rates have come down a lot. And we know that we got latest reports today that housing prices have come down the rate of increase has slowed dramatically in housing crisis. And the supply on the market is huge. So all of those are leading signs that maybe what they said done already with its rate increases has been enough. The fed says, nope, we're not giving up yet. We really want to wipe it out of people's expectations because it gets built in. When you get a rent increase, it's for the year ahead. And so even though inflation comes down, that higher price is built into the economy. When you get a wage increase and no one's saying people don't deserve wage increases, they have not kept up with inflation. But again, that's built into the cost of that business for the year ahead. And so we've got a lot of inflation sort of, they use the word embedded in the economy, and they intend to make sure that people stop thinking about it. I was looking at a chart of consumer expectations of inflation. And their expectations are off the charts. Consumer expectations of inflation right now are as high as they have been in a long time, even going back to the early 1980s. The consumer expected rate of inflation over the next 12 months is very high. By the way, we have inflation is about 9% that was the latest report a week or two ago now. Some of us with longer memories, Jimbo, remember inflation in 1979 80 81, running at 13 and a half percent, we survived that, but it took a real steep recession in 1981 82 to bring unemployment up and slow the economy. And we hope they won't have to do anything that dramatic. But we can survive inflation. We've got to ring about now then. I want to go back to something you said earlier here. First of all, let's take note of the relatively low unemployment rate. The government offers several unemployment figures I know because I used to report that for this network. And they pick one, every administration picks one that makes them look pretty good. Here's how it works. I'm out of work. And I'm looking for work. I'm unemployed. Two, three weeks go by. I'm still out of work. I'm still looking for work. I'm out of work. I'm unemployed. A couple of three months go by. I'm out of work. I've given up guess what? I'm no longer out of work. Isn't that remarkable? Yeah, you're out of control. I gotta put myself. You say the people have money. Where are they getting it? We certainly isn't savings. Americans as a group don't save diddly. Where are we getting it? There's only one place we can possibly be getting it, and that is so in some way from the government. And if people are so satisfied with the money they have that they're not bothering to take jobs, then it's time to cut back what the government gives them. Well, we're a little late on that. And economists are debating that, but the government created $9 trillion or the fed accommodated them to create a $9 trillion and you remember the stimulus payments you remember the PPI program and a lot of other programs that went out from the government and you know at the time it was critical, but we were going down the tubes, but still it was $9 trillion the national debt has increased over the last couple of years. So that's where the money got put into the system. The fed is

"Was murdered. The boat So like the actual concept of this girl. There was no little girl that drowned in the pool. There was no two girls that drowned in the pool. That would have been a major thing that would have been all over the place and there is no evidence of this at all that this that there was a jackie. They drowned in the pool that there was a little girl that drowned in the pool. There were two little girls that drowned in the pool or that there was girls that got murdered. I agree i mean. I also read that as well. There's no again you know. Unlike the previous story where we knew we know the guy and that's how he died and all of that You know we don't know Exactly where. Jackie comes from again. I just think spirits are drawn to this place disney disney but but just in general And you know and again. I've i've also heard that it was a adult women and you know but the story cheney story so many times that it's like i don't find credibility in the story that changes all the time. My job is a skeptic is not totally rule out every single possibility. I just don't think that there's been any proof of any ghost yet. And this is one of those times where i'm just like i don't know there's just too much other stuff happening and we'd have to really tear apart every single story But the idea that there was no jackie. There was no person at drowned in the pool. Little girl and there's a so many different things and also as you had said the second class pool is no longer even there right. They removed the whole second class Pool yes so it's like. I don't know there's just so much wrong with this story again. I you know i i. I pulled kathy's story because it's very representative of people who've heard splashing have her giggling have felt a little girl's hands on them Seen wet footprints Again multiple people over the years have claimed these things again. Is it jackie. I know it that was one guy he was. He was the source of the jackie rumor. So whether we believe him or not. I'm not sure also The ship didn't carry many Children passengers. I mean there was some but they were all accounted for and the reason being is because it costs so much money that a child passenger would have just like unless they were actually moving. They probably wouldn't bring a child with that then again may kid but then again it's going to be a month long thing you know they're gonna be staying but i i don't know but there wasn't many children actually aboard the ship so all right i'm gonna have to go zero zero in this when i'm going six on this one six. Okay okay. All right So do you have one more..

"When we were at the event that we that we saw these at that was That was the hands on paranormal right church. Yeah so she used a connect from an xbox too to camera to make this camera work and uses the same technology as that which that camera is specifically designed to find humans and to Into map them out Right so it's constantly searching constantly searching for what can be considered a human figure and if it sees like two points like what appears to be an arm and what appears to be ahead it will draw the rest in and it will make the stick figure so the stick figure thing is nothing that is nothing at all. That is just doing what the technology is supposed to do which is make a human and map it out because remember connect us to have those things where you could control it just with your hands and style. Oh i used to do that. Yeah but that's not very good. No and neither are the stick figures if you've ever seen them with the dancing dancing okay. Because they're moving from one spot to another spot just continuously and it doesn't know how to map it then so it just maps the in betweens as it looks like dance moves all right so i don't buy any of that the audio i have no idea but given have so. Yeah but given everything else that this could be. Just destroy this. This evidence could be trampled on with everything else that disney was part of it and they wanted to make a haunted mansion that nobody could have been staying there in nineteen sixty six. Because it wasn't even a thing at that time. I just yeah. No yeah no. I saw your rating is zero zero. All right You know what. I am actually going to give this one a four. Oh wow which for me is very very low. I'm gonna be honest because the disney thing. I mean i get it but yeah yeah i just. This is unbelievable. All right rebecca. What else you got okay. So i'll have to talk about jackie Jackie is probably the most beloved spirit on the ship. jackie's spirit of a young girl. Who's about five or six years of age And i'm not gonna go into the whole story. But basically peter james is a investigator and he was investigating in nineteen ninety-one In the royal theatre with a film crew. And he basically communicated with a girl named little girl named jackie and Basically they they talked to her in both the the royal theatre which used to be the second class pool and in the first class pool which was used at that time Over the years a lot of people have tried to communicate and have communicated supposedly with jackie supposedly. She's very playful. Likes talk to people. She'll play peekaboo with people but Here's the specific story that that i'll share with you This is on rinker. we came into the pool and i heard giggling the sound of a little girl playing the area and at that point i there was splashing. This is kathy. Love a maintenance supervisor on the ship. The splashing stopped the giggling continued and we observed the wet footprints of a small child walking across into the locker room. I know that's what i saw. I'm not sure exactly. Why thought but i know it was there so i don't know for sure that it was jackie but since people claim jackie is a little girl spirit goes sits in the pool. Area i'm connecting the two okay. There was no jackie ever in the pool. That died okay. But there's a lot more to this though okay because this story has changed several times to that there was two little girls that drowned in the pool to it even goes like really far in another direction. That says that these two girls or one girl. The story changes several times. Got.

"Seen pass. Those eating was eating burgers anyways But yes she could really hear it on her audio because it was basically this figure that was right next to her. Okay so that's the story right but then do you wanna do you wanna talk about. I want a couple of things going to jump in in nineteen sixty six. It was not open as a hotel. That wasn't even a thing. Then it wasn't opened until nineteen seventy two as a hotel in seventy one. They started to allow people to stay there. They had one hundred twenty five rooms of the four hundred ready so at this point. Nine hundred sixty six. It was nothing okay. It was just sitting there Until nineteen sixty seven when it did it Last voyage but that was even after it had been decommissioned so it was only because they wanted to make this a big publicity thing. Active as a liner. No six car so somebody stayed there though. You don't know but no they didn't. They may have the year. I have no idea also to. Is this the same State rooms that disney was involved with. Yes i wanted to talk about this. Yeah so disney wanted to make this into a cruise ship version of the haunted mansion right. Yes so they wanted to make. This all seem haunted absolutely. So that's the thing. So she this woman her blog posts like totally says that right like she says. That was the room that they tried to create this version. They had faces behind the ears. False flat floorboards faucets wired to go on when known was in the room when experiment did make enough money though so supposedly they like left prior they locked proprietary technology in the room which that doesn't seem like very disney me like i don't know why they leave stuff behind but whatever may be it was cheaper than taking it with them but supposedly it was just like sealed off but like the stuff would go on. You know what i mean. So people would claim to hear these things but it was just like the stuff that disney left behind. But the theory of greg newkirk. Who was one of the imperishable investigators. I was with her. Is that you know okay. Maybe we have no idea of any of these murders or deaths or things that people will claim happened in. That room happened. We've zero evidence of any of it but because people go to this room looking for ghosts because disney did all this stuff and made it seem. Paranormal it's attracting a lot of paranormal activity on the show. Yeah okay 'cause disney disney always attracts. Paranormal is okay. But also i wanted to talk about the. So as cameras right. Yes okay now..

"All right all right next next one and one thousand nine hundred sixty six a woman saying in Oh sorry so. This is room The state room be three forty. Oh help if i started with that i got deleted on my script there So state we're in. Be three forty is supposed to be the most haunted room in the whole replaced. So in nineteen ninety-six woman staying in the room reported that she was woken up with bedcovers. Were ripped off of her and she saw man at the foot of the bed Then she rang for the steward but apparently he vanished so that was kind of the start of like the story of this room years later gusting in the room reported hearing someone knocking on the door in the middle of the night seeing bathroom lights mysteriously turn on Even though tells made complaining they would find the bathroom water running even when no one stayed in the room for days and one reported that the bed covers were pulled off right after she put them on. So these are just kind of those general stories. Right that people tell so. I think kind of interesting though. So i'm gonna tell a specific story of a woman. I'm sorry who stayed there. Munaf just move things around a little bit. I tell the story of a woman who stayed there early tremaine. She stayed there with a bunch of Investigators now they left right the like. She stayed in the room by herself but earlier. In the evening there were a bunch of investigators with her So anyways the next day after she stayed in the room and she didn't she says like she thought she like heard people but like a lot of times. That room lay people. Come and knock on it and run away and she says she the during the night. She did not herself experienced anything specifically right k. but the next day she looked through the s. l. s. footage taken during the investigation. Now the sos camera. And i think we've seen one of these is the structured light sensor perceives An spatially locates energy that is invisible to the naked eye so things like that stick figure. Yeah it's like the connect on the old xboxes exactly right. So she had been sitting in the corner of beef three forty all through the investigations the day before On the side of the bed next to the wall there was no one next to her all night. No one that she was human She never budge from the spot. So she's watching this footage. Imagine her surprise. She says when she saw a creepy spectral stick figure looming next to her on the camera and she went back to her audio notes and she heard the same. Vp responses on her file that the panama skaters also claimed to see They asked us when spirit if he had a name and they had to ask him a couple of times if finally he was like hassle people off just hassle Limited was even louder and clearer on.

"No evidence presented to me was the photograph. Yeah i mean and what would you give the photograph. i maybe. the photo gets a four a four. Wow that surprises me. I would give it even lower. I mean if. I mean if i can go below zero on this one i just because of just the source of it and just i don't know i it. Just yeah okay all right next next one the next wanna talk about is john pedder. John petter yes so he is said to haunt the boiler area specifically hatch door number thirteen also known as shaft alley. Okay all right. So warning for gruesome. Nece everybody on this particular story so one night. In nineteen sixty six the watertight doors in the engine and boiler rooms were ordered to be closed about five minutes later in eighteen year. Old crew member from yorkshire was found crushed in the door hatch number thirteen trapped with his arms pinned to his side while the man was freed and carried to the hospital ward. It was too late. He showed signs of ca- rushing injury on his arms chest and pelvis and was bleeding from his nose. He was injected with morphine but died shortly after so his goes as regular seen around the area with people reporting the sound of someone running behind them and whistling. has you pet. yeah that was me. You're the whistler. Others others have noticed that spots of greece. The look like fingerprints have appeared on their faces. Some have seen the figure of a bearded man in blue coveralls. That looks just like the man who died out of the corner of their eyes and several others have said they've seen an engineer wandering the hallways asking if guests have seen his ranch but when they went back to find him he had disappeared so like again lots of different claims. But here's a specific one right so this is from the unsolved mysteries phantom website. Oh i didn't know there was one i guess. So okay All right so quote. I was working in the capacity of a lead guide which meant my class was to close down the tour and make sure there wasn't any stragglers behind nancy and recalls. I don't know why. Turn around. But i turned around and standing right behind me on. The step was a man. He had on blue overalls and they were dirty when i step aside to let him go by he wasn't there he was gone. I don't necessarily believe any other stories that other people have come up with. I only know what. I saw an only believe what i saw with my own eyes interesting. all right so there are some red flags when we talk about the queen. Mary and one of them is that.

Okay okay so there are as i mentioned earlier. So many go stories and investigations. I will link to them in the show notes. I'm only going to be covering a fraction of them today. there are so many famous stories that i can't even cover all of the like big stories We just don't have time for it and then there are countless reports of paranormal activity. Vp's photos all sorts of stuff. And you know. I'm just i'm going with a few key things today But please if you are interested in this checkout the schotz so many amazing things out there. Okay i only you can decide if these are. Famous story is imperative reports are real connected. Not real okay. All right so the first one. I want to talk about is one that of course we have to do.

She was stunned by what she discovered. Did she discover while while on board. The glamorous goes under felt compelled to start taking photographs When she later studied her photos she spotted the ghostly figure standing in a doorway. Which of course. I will put this picture in the show notes Valentina said she wasn't visible to the naked eye. It was only when i got home and looked at the photos that i saw it. It could only be the lady in white. She's often seen by workers. But as far as i'm aware nobody's captured her in camera and this kind of detail interesting. What do you think of the picture. I am not sure. I mean it's it's it's actually so clearly a woman in way woman. It's it's clearly a figure gareth figure but it looks like here king member. No no no.

She completed her one thousand and last crossing of the north atlantic having carried get this two million one hundred twelve thousand passengers and she carried them over three million seven hundred ninety two thousand two hundred twenty seven miles. Wow data work. Yeah absolutely she was you know she definitely her purpose. In that time after some renovation opened its doors to tourist eighth nineteen seventy-one in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Two hyatt hotels was brought in to manage. Its four hundred room hotel although it struggled financially so it wasn't just like come here and like walk around it like it was a hotel like it was every there okay and that was part of its problem is that it tried and it still is. It tried to serve so many different things that it failed at all of them. And at that time in nineteen seventy one and seventy two. They had three different places running it so they financially just lost. Wow yeah but disney had some interest in buying the queen mary so they plan to include an attraction known as disney c. Which would be a theme park celebrating the world's oceans but all that fell through disney abandoned abandoned its concept although they did put a considerable amount of money into it. That would have been so cool. It yeah bull actually. They kinda did but they did it in tokyo disney sea and tokyo. I say yeah It closed its doors again in nineteen ninety two and then reopened again in eighteen eighty three then it went bankrupt in two thousand five or at least it's holding company did It's gone through a few other hand since then every new owner or operator would have concepts on how to make this ship. That is harbored in long beach financially. Sound in in a two thousand seventeen report on the ship's condition. The report noted that not only the hall but also the supports for iraised exhibition area within the ship were corroding and the ships on deteriorating condition left areas such as the engine room vulnerable to flooding so repairs were estimated at close to three hundred million dollars. Wow they never did all those repairs So what they what they decided to do was to Pump twenty three million dollars into it and try to get like like the three hundred million would be all the repairs okay. They tried to do just the essential ones but they still missed out. They still didn't finish all those so we're not sure what's going to happen to the queen. Mary nowadays As it still in need of several repairs in twenty twenty one day they need at least another twenty. Three million dollars in in repairs But the company that was running it filed for bankruptcy in twenty twenty one. Well and i'm guessing last year didn't help no..

"Reaffirm rescued really. Yeah that's so much better than i thought it was going to be. It is but that means that they. These dogs took the place of people. Well i suppose that's now by the way. Titanic obviously is before this right yes in my history just making sure jason myself history okay. So the largest room on board the queen. Mary was cabin class. I class their main dining room or grand salon. Depending on what time of day it was i of course Spanning three stories in height and anchored by white columns the ship had many air conditioned public rooms on board which was a novelty for the day. Right the cabin class swimming pool facility spanned over two decks in height. This was the first ocean liner to be equipped with their own jewish prayer room and part of a policy to show that british shipping lines avoided the anti semitism evident at the time in nazi germany. Yeah right nineteen thirty four. Yeah so yeah. So you're thinking this is really close to world war. Two right Well the world war happens during this and during world war two the queen. Mary was converted into a troopship and ferried allied soldiers and at the time repainted. The ship's hull and this Superstructure and funnels to navy gray which gave her the nickname of the gray ghost grey ghost and probably were go. Story started lighting to the water.

"It would really be appreciated Pat's acts It's all right. Rebecca you ready. I m hashtag pat facts but Okay well before we begin. I know that we advertise that. This was going to be the h m s queen. Mary and we're kind of talking about the r. m. s. queen mary. So the difference between hms and aramis is that the hms is reserved for ships that serve in the british royal navy called her majesty's ship so h m s her majesty's ship while aramis is designated to carry royal postal mail across the atlantic to america. So our ms royal mail ship but ships can be both of those things though so the queen. Mary served as both during its day. And we're going to talk about that as we go. Yeah absolutely and i say you know sometimes when you're doing the research for the paranormal stuff you'll you'll sometimes people get a little confused because there was like an older version of hms queen. Mary that anyway. it's not worth getting into. But just you know we're talking about we're talking about the the one that the mentioned is in california which actually. It's kinda funny because the older queen mary. They forced it to be called the queen. Mary two even though it was the first one those the first one. Yeah but at some point. They forced that. Yeah well and that's the one that's sunk. This is not the one that's on but this is also because The ships are involved with the navy in some kind of way even the ones that carried the postal stuff right up part of so they can do stuff like that. If it was privately-owned that would be very difficult to do. That's true okay. So britain was falling behind in its shipbuilding in the nineteen twenties. Germany had kind of taken over as the major shipbuilding country. In those days with the launch of the bremen and the europea britain was determined to take back its lead in the shipbuilding race. So white star. You might remember white star. Because that was in the titanic episode. Absolutely so they began construction on an eighty thousand tons ship named the oceanic in nineteen twenty eight but at the same time another shipbuilding company named canard planned a seventy five thousand a ton ship of their own. So canard got started. I and the ship was known only as whole number five. Three four and they began actually constructing ship in december of nineteen thirty on the river. Clyde in scotland you've been to scotland rebecca. i have been. Have you been to the river clyde. So have you been there. I've been discussed land. But i have not been to the river clyde either but that's where they do a lot of shipbuilding though. Okay yeah or they did at store But you know the timing was really bad because that's when the great depression hit the uk so canard applied for alone to complete five three four. Not only were. They approved for this loan but the loan was big enough for them to actually make two ships in these two ships with Sale back and forth from South southampton to new york. Okay so There was a small condition. Though in this the condition of the.

Who Really Owns and Operates Your Favorite Cruise Line?

"Want to talk about who actually owns the various different cruise lines around the world. Because when I talked to people about this there's lots and lots of surprises and people are really quite amazed. Couple of things to note. Did you know that? Only three key corporations control the cruise lines. That seventy five percent passes go on every single year. Just three corporations one of which controls cruise lines that cover half of all passes cruising around the world today this too big trends happening as it within cruise lines first of all the big cruise corporations. They're slowly taking up all the different independent cruise lines around the world. And what they're doing. They're creating a big mass market value brand that creating a premium luxury brand with a big or medium sized ships that go to all the famous places in the world the big popular ports they normally also have a smaller ship premium or luxury cruise line. That can go to the more out of the way more unusual places and then also have an ultra luxury brand which is increasingly they using to go into expedition cruising. The second thing is we're seeing more and more corporations particularly travel corporations getting into the world of cruising and launching a cruise line under their name before we talk about those corporations that control everything. Do you know who the biggest cruise lines in the world are in seventh place is Aida which is a cruise line which focuses on the German. Consumer in sixth place is Kosta. They focus very much on the Italian consumer in fifth place. You have princess cruises. Princess cruises have just under seven percent of all passengers in the world. Today go on Princess the fourth-biggest cruise line the world and also one of the youngest cruise lines is MSE cruises. They have over seven percent off all passengers in the world gone embassy cruise every year. They're focused particularly in Europe. They create a very European experience. The third biggest cruise line in the world is Norwegian cruise. Line and they have around about ten percent of all passages in the world on a Norwegian cruise. The second-biggest is Royal Caribbean International. With around ninety percent passengers and the biggest cruise line in the world is carnival with their fun ships which have over twenty percent so those are the seven biggest cruise lines in the world. But what and who are those three big cruise corporations that control seventy five percent of all passenger trips on a cruise the biggest cruise corporation in the world is Carnival Cruise Corporation? Fifty percent of all cruise passengers go on one of the carnival owned companies every single year. They have nine cruise lines at the time of recording. They always have carnival which is how they restarted. Back in the early nineteen seventies. They have fun ships and they basically take almost a of cruise passengers every single year. Go on Carnival cruise and they are the brand that really created all the excitement around cruising in the way that we know it today. The other eight brands that they have some. You might find a big surprise. In the premium end. They have princess cruises. Which as I mentioned is the fifth-biggest cruise line in the world and that is very much a luxury cruise line with a very large fleet of twenty ships and crews all around the world and basically based ships around the world really really popular luxury premium cruise line with sort of large ships. They also have Honda America which is very traditional cruise line with Dutch heritage. Dating right back to the eighteen. Hundreds late eighteen hundreds at a very strong link to Holland and they do also have a very traditional cuisine experience and they do cruise all around the world and they're very very strong as our princess. In Alaska they were the two cruise lines originally went into Alaska they also control in the luxury premium and Pino cruises out of the UK Piano Australia and the ultra luxury side. They have seaborn which has small ships providing very ultra luxury experience. And of course they are now going into expedition cruising then control some brands which catered to very specific markets. So they have Aida which is what the German markets they have cost which really caters to the Italian market. And then one of the brands which they have which is probably one of the most famous cruising brands of all is Cunard yes. Carnival Corporation Control Cunard. So carnival is often seen as one of the cheapest places to go cruising Cunard's often seen as one of the big prestige just because of their line expertly Queen Mary two and the transatlantic crossing that they do so. Those are all the brands within the Carnival Corporation portfolio fifty percent of all cruises. Go on one of those carnival brands every single yet. The second biggest cruise corporation the world where roughly a quarter of all passengers travel with every single year. And that's world Caribbean group. Royal Caribbean group has six cruise lines within its portfolio at the time recording. Royal Caribbean International. The big mega ships huge big ships with lots of innovation. They were the first rate is being the big resort experience aboard with their water parks and airflow riders and they're ice skating rinks and all sorts of big innovation so they create massive big ships with lots and lots of resorts features. They also have a number of other interesting brands. Have for example in the premium end. They have celebrity cruises which is a more contemporary or those still fairly traditional cruising

Kate Middleton Takes on Her Most Important Role Yet

"It's been a big week for the duchess which is of Cambridge. Who of course took on her first patch big patronage in quite a few months I think the last was the royal photographic society but this week it was announced that she she became the royal patron of family action which has of course been passed down to by the Queen? A big one for her. Yes big one but selling keeping with what her main platform has been. I think it's quite interesting. When we look at the younger generation of roles because for decades the older members of the royal family had had upwards of five hundred six hundred seven hundred patronage is? But what we're seeing with. This younger generation is a much more concentrated focused effort. And you really understand and what they're interested in so of course. This feeds indicates Very hands on work with vulnerable families disadvantaged children and she's made a big point of of fighting for children to have a good early start in life because so much evidence that supports a good early. Start being beneficial to the future so Edition I think with swim definitely and as you say this is kind of continued really. What's being almost an eight year? Focus for her. Now we've seen this kind of continued theme of community support. Family supports child supports. And not just recognizing that families are doing but also Harris Paris and people in different sectors as well family action long established Charity had been founded in eighteen. Sixty nine queen wasn't the first world. Oh Patron Queen. Mary was the royal patron before that. So it's been nice to see this. One been passed down from generation to generation. Definitely is a good continuum isn't it it's an and this This event this week wasn't case I Engagement on behalf of the charity. I I think what's really unique with this one in particular is they're trying to branch shout in as many different ways to help as many families as possible and so I think it was January that she was there when they launched the family line which is using volunteers across the country to help. Oh people through texts and emails and over the phone which that's kind of new universal. You could really tax the charity before help you can out exactly. Ah as you mentioned they did. They do all different areas. They tackle difficult issues at a families face including financial hardship emotional wellbeing socialites isolation Russian and then of course more serious things domestic abuse substance misuse. And so it came as we know has had private meetings with the charity beforehand. This is something that we're really seeing happen. Quite a lot with the younger members of the Royal Family because they are taking on less patterns Jays so they have more time to spend with each charity. It's not just cutting cutting a ribbon here and It's actually a lot more on the ground and hands on definitely and I think that focus is really benefiting the charities in terms of public awareness. Because when will we ever talking about mental health as we are today and you can look at each. I mean we keep talking about William Kate Harry making a switch of this generation. But I think that's the future isn't it with with Charles's vision of a slimmed-down monarchy but you can look at each one of those rules and you know exactly what they're interested in and they're able to use their platform to really highlight the causes that drive them that make them want to raise awareness. Raise money and really get stuck in. But I think it's interesting too as you mentioned omits mid it's no longer just unveiling a plaque cutting a ribbon. Several years ago Williams left out on the streets with the homeless to highlight the work of centerpoint Harry trekking to the poll with with wounded veterans.

How do you breathe less pollution on school run?

"The research being carried out by the university of Sheffield in the north of England has found that children going to and from school in that city can inhale pollution which is the equivalent of two to three cigarettes a day using personal monitors forty five families measure the pollution as they walked bicycled or drove over a three month period and found that even being inside a call made no difference let's talk to an expert on the effects of pollution on children professor Jonathan creek is from Queen Mary university of London he was not involved in the research that has seen it and is a member of the U. K. committee on the medical effects of at pollution welcome to Newsday thank you lovely to have you in the studio this is I'm a shocking is is the word for this that even children sitting inside because aren't protected what are your thoughts well it's not surprising as in Rhode said in urban areas you can adopt these this car does of toxic pollution specially that'll city particles and toxic gases so if you're gonna drive in the middle of these roads and suck up the exhaust said from the because the vehicles in front of you it's not surprising that you're going to have be exposed to high levels of air pollution in modern because have on board and a filtration systems one motive for do they make no difference they make some difference in the most expensive because interestingly often the most polluting because will protect to some extent people inside them but this data from chappel chose episode in line with data that was presented European receber free society meeting last year and this year showing that in London taxi drivers not only are exposed to evolution the same levels of as the road spot in many cases much high level so it depends on the vehicle you have but for most vehicles globally you're gonna get exposed to public high levels of application on this letter in its trend that for these children if they carried on inhaling at that rate it would be the levels will be five times world health organization's legal limits of of inhaling this kind of pollution I mean what kind of affects combat hop on the human body so children are especially vulnerable to the effects of air pollution that long gross a suppressed so you end up with less lung function that you should do it's associated with the ammonia in very young children and new onset asked a whole range of effects which actually can have lifelong consequences and for this reason for example in the U. K. we protect children from passive cigarette smoke bottom fortunately we're not protecting children from the effects of evolution so Sheffield for far international audience would you say that is a but particularly congested city were you more with with the study done in an area where there were lots and lots of calls all you paint a picture for us such a food is in that the Midlands and it's a medium size city so it's pretty typical the cities around a many European areas London the suddenly very different has very much high density and and what tribe pollution so this is not a particularly polluted city side again it's not surprising that at these children exposed because they are at the Dow rose which have very high levels of traffic and they have they occur everywhere across the country and globally I don't know that that the the parents involved in this for us how they felt about this when they were presented with the results and they were very anxious when they because even if they were walking even if they were trying to do that bit to help reduce pollution the children were still being exposed to it well yes at the end hopefully that means that said the chef council and many councils across the U. K. will take this very seriously you mention walking I think the evidence is that if you actively transport yourself rounds at the city's using public transport walking the message here is that you probably will get exposed to much lower levels of pollution and also have the added benefits of of exercise I think this these data shows that we showed that we need to transport out children better and healthier a creek that fell in amongst all cities yes so basically getting out and walking and cycling even though it exposes you to that air pollution is still better for you in the long run absolutely and says the data from chef would suggest and also the data from at the taxi cab suggest you will you you protect yourself against this sort of concentrated pollution that you get in and many vehicles ultimately getting out of the call there is is the end game yes it is very important and also clearing away the most toxic up because of vehicles from roads and in the UK's these of the diesel vehicles professor Jonathan creek thank you for joining us from the Queen Mary

Creepy crawlies, Quarks and Counting

"Now with me to help answer the questions that you're sending us from the University of York behavioral scientists. She works on insects. Eleanor drink water. What have you been up to you telling elements yes. I'm very keen beekeeper and I made the mistake of not zipping up my the other day and and I can tell you that that that was bitterly regretted. The next day is very much a mark of pride among beekeepers but you're not appropriate beekeeper until you've at least one and flexes yeah. That's a bad thing when that happens but if you work with do occasionally gets stung how's it. How's it going the beekeeping fund. We've haven't absolutely lovely queen in one of heights at the moment. The other one's a bit more grumpy so they're a bit more of a it's true what my brother keeps. He says the same thing he said as the Queen's get older odor and also certain colonies just have a particularly aggressive behavior exactly something to do with the Queen's squirting out ramones that keeps everyone calm as the Queen Ages. She makes less all of them. Yes exactly that's that's. That's exactly it in the end the character of the Queen or you know the chemicals that Sheikh producers has a really big impact on on the behavior of all the other bees in the colony so so yeah so if you have a really nasty queen than you can swap out for really friendly Queen and some of the hive becomes a lot more friendly to work with credible. Yes some no. It was much opening unfortunately but yes definitely enough to be getting on with you so any questions you have about insects. Perhaps even bees stings beekeeping. Ask Ask Elinor. Dan Gordon's also with US dance and exercise physiologist is Anglia Ruskin University. He's also a Paralympian and it's going to world record and there was a lot of coverage in recent weeks about athletes using sports drinks and not been terribly good for their dental health. Yes about I think about ten days ago quite solarge raging study that was looking at elite athletes and they reported the dental health and elite athletes was was far far worse than the general population of Oh. The paper didn't fully attributed it to they wanted to make conclusions was they thought it was down to the con- sports drinks that are consumed which mostly these high carbohydrates looked sugar. How's your dentition during you got away with it. I think what an advocate in sports the practitioners do then just because you don't have energy to do the events no and I think in the end what they're really getting exposes has got to be greater scrutiny of the health of the teeth and the athletes when competing one of the things we have to do before we went to the Paralympics. We every athlete have dental check which sounds crazy things the limbic games actually you wouldn't think that teeth of that important but actually the worst thing you can have an. Olympic Games is fake and so one of the things that's really really being advocated. Now is that part of the Athlete Support Program Part of lifestyle management should be to actually monitor the health of the of the teeth warning people there. Is this risk they'll. They'll probably take more. Oh care about washing their mouth outs to get rid of that. I think yeah more used to math clean teeth more regularly for example as part of the training routine not so any questions about exercise exercise physiology how the body works sports and sports fitness. Danny man now next to Dan is friend. Let's see what did the wonderful. Fran is Cambridge University physicist. She is an astrophysicist cosmologists interested in how the universe at large works but you're a stand up. Comedian allows guys right. I'm GonNa do the horrible thing because then tell us a joke I won't do that going. It's going pretty well. I'm in writing a new show at the moment by kind of the philosophy of science and what we're doing when we're doing science so that has been a bit of a step back from the day to day if my research are you poking fun at it or you kind of making light of what life is a scientist and researcher is like is that I'm poking fun at but also I think a serious a serious element over and I hope people will come away knowing a bit more by you know I've been told I'm participating in the scientific typic- methods that I never really examined what that meant until now you're gonNA find out you're also saying to me just before we started about the story that came out earlier this year the first picture of a black hole or rather the first impression of of a black hole and that's going to be made into a movie rather than just a bunch started pictures. Now you're saying yeah that's right so you might remember the event. Horizon Telescope a few months ago published the first image of a black hole or more pedantically the shadow of a black hole support and then I can do a full color movie of the black hole which is going to be really incredible both in terms of what it will teach us about astrophysics in general relativity and also just just super cool you can just you'll be able to watch your black hole on youtube or you could just watch SANTELLI programs which amount to much of the same no content visible whatsoever. Thank you very much so anything to do with how the universe works and space anything that please send those questions in from be happy to consider those also with this bobby seagull who needs relief introduction. He's originally for comb -versities. Mathematician and teaches maths taught teach kismet and actually doing teddy program their movement have new going around the country looking at inventions and things going for those who made a reminder minded is the universe challenge icon the icon of icons. I'm his friend were. You're pretty you're pretty optimistic as well thank you that's very good areas and outgoing outgoing but we had a first series initially looking at a genius guy to Britain's traveling around minicar imagine like top gear meets. Qa but sort of exploring all the curious bits of Britain and the new series is called a genius guy to the age of Invention Sarah can I get back in on minicar go around the UK but this time it's quite chronological so looking from seventeen fifty thousand nine hundred and exploring Britain's discoveries and inventions in that period. Why did you pick that period because it's particularly golden period. There was some of the reason I I think it's the golden nature that period because if you look before that is sort of Britain still pre enlightenment before industrial times and then in that period of seventeen fifty nine hundred lots lots of invention discovers chemistry's discovered physics signed the word sign scientist comes into being Darwin Thompson so lots of great figures of science emerge any particularly stand out moment because there was are when you making telly programs they're always funny things that we never see on screen or or other things that are just well moments that you never thought you'd find yourself doing so so what am I stand up moments as she isn't a stand up moment for me but is a silent moment for the show so we visit the cabinet Cambridge and we get to hold one of the original cathode ray tubes at J J Thomson used. I was too much of a chicken to hold it. No I think it's like someone else's baby you can look at. I admire it but if you want to hold it no no no. I'M NOT GONNA hold the baby the big quite tempting to hold it and they go oops because the same thing sort of happened to me because because when I was in South Africa when I first went to South Africa when I was at a conference in this big American guy came up to me at the conference and he said tomorrow going to pick you up from your hotel and I'm going to take you somewhere and show you something something GonNa Change Your Life forever now. Of course you never met this guy you think I can arrange things and actually he took me to the University of the voters rand in Johannesburg where he's professor of Paleoanthropology. This is Lieber. Who's now been on this program. A number of times in this discovered not one not two but three new species of early human ancestor and he had in this wooden box the university the face the complete facial skeleton of the Taung Child which is the specimen which is the australopithecus holy type in other words all all of the Australia with specimens that we have early human ancestors maybe three million years ago so they're all compared to this one which was discovered by Raymond Dart at about one hundred years ago now and it's really fabulous. They've even got the endo cost the fossil remnant of the brain of this thing and I was holding this in my hands is three million years. Old is the only only one in existence and am I did get tempted to go whoops but Lee was very very cordiality hands undermine all the time. 'cause you think how this is just prices but I know exactly what you mean now for your home. If you guys in the studio we've got a little guess who that we run through these sorts of programs we give you a sequence of clues across the show and as the show unfolds unfolds we give you more of them and the first one. I've got here. It's it's an animal. Give you that much but can you work out. What makes this particular sound okay. That was the sound it makes any clues. you want to hear the other very fussy this lot. They won't hear it again. Okay anyone got any ideas seagull. It's not a bobby seagull. No okay more clues coming up eleanor. Let's kick off with this one view from Marianna. What which is the most intelligent insect do not base because maybe they well okay so I have been asked this before and this is always a really hard question because I am incredibly and I believe that all insects are incredibly intelligent in all sorts of different ways and we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what insects can do it could be the case that we haven't even discovered the cleverest insect but if I was to choose one based on research about an individual it'll who's pretty clever. It might have to be the bees. I'm afraid some really cool research has shown that bees can tell apart the difference between different painting style so if you showed them a monet and Picasso you can get them to learn the differences and then be able to generalize to other paintings and also prefer. I don't know maybe that'd I'll be a follow up paper. I hope it would also they can tell the difference between people's faces and they can remember a face for two days which is incredible. There was also study that the the researchers at Queen Mary Invest of London published a couple years ago where they showed be another be rolling a ball into a goal and the be that was watching then how to get the B The ball into the into the goal and got a treat yeah it was social learning and more than that they they did a follow on from that which was even more cool so trained on one particular ball and they had other balls in the area which they blew down while they were learning but then in the in the second round they unglued the balls goals and the B. would learn the concept and then would apply it to closeable so then they would perform the same action but on a separate they weren't just learning out this ball goes in in in the hall they they could like generalize which is incredible if you think about it and what else could have favorite insect in the studio.

16 WWII veterans cross Atlantic to commemorate 75th anniversary of D-Day

"Sixteen World War, Two veterans are in France on this Memorial Day, marking the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. The battle of Normandy, they shared their painful memories with CBS's, Wendy Gillette before departing. The bullets all around the phone. My name nearly seventy five years ago. Frank davita landed on Omaha beach in Normandy, France on d day and witnessed his comrades falling around him. Why am I alive? What? No had a guilty conscience. He was just nineteen years old today. He's ninety four he only started talking about what he witnessed five years ago in nineteen twenty years old. Too young to drink. With two young vote. But they weren't that ninety nine year old Steve Melnikov also survived the invasion that began the liberation of western Europe from the Nazis. He was shot in the neck eleven days later but after treatment return to fight. I'm a combat infantryman I was there at the beginning. I wish did the whole time I was there at the end of the war. I was in combat two hundred thirty five days. They're part of a group of sixteen World War, Two veterans sailing aboard the Queen Mary two. This week veterans are traveling from Brooklyn, New York to England on their seven-night transatlantic journey the men will head to Normandy to take part in events to Mark the seventy fifth anniversary of d day on June six and honor, the more than four hundred thousand Americans who died in the war, people say them hero. I'm not a hero. I says those guys the grave that my here was they gave their life their country.

And this is business wars daily on this Thursday night once upon a time time not that long ago. It was a weird thing to take vacation alone. So though, travelers often felt stigmatized and even if they didn't it typically costs more to travel alone than as part of a couple. Well, the travel world is finally catching up to a trend. That's changed pretty quickly more and more of us are deciding to get away from everything and that means everyone to a full twenty five percent of millennials planned to take a solo trip in the next twelve to twenty four months, according to a recent study and data from Pinterest shows that searches on solo traveled shot up six hundred percent in twenty eighteen alone. According to British newspaper, the telegraph, clearly there are more and more solo travelers everywhere, including in places, you'd think would be the last welcome solitary adventures. Cruise ships cruising has been particularly difficult for single travellers like hotel, rooms cabins are price for double occupancy until recently a single traveller would have to pay what's called a single supplement. That's an additional charge of ten to one hundred percent intended to make up for the losses. Cruise lines incur when you travel so those single supplements can make taking a cruise prohibitively expensive. But in two thousand ten Norwegian cruise lines noticed an uptick of single travelers and decided to try catering to their smaller budgets. The company added studio sized cabins to its Norwegian epic ship that move made history reports Conde nast traveler magazine now at least five Norwegian cruise ships offer studios and not in paltry numbers either. There are eighty two rooms for one on the Norwegian escape and Norwegian bliss ships not to be outdone Royal Caribbean now offers studio state rooms on at least three of its ships. Quantum of the seas ovation of the season anthem of the seas. And they're priced without the dreaded single supplement other luxury. Cruise lines have followed from Canard which operates the Queen Mary two the river cruise specialist American cruise lines, but the trend is still young solo travelers will still spend as much as double for a cabin on many cruise ships so booking that relaxing, ocean-going vacation should be done very very carefully. But once you've secured that budget state room, there may be few things more lovely than several days at sea. Good book and Margarita in hand alone. From one this business wars daily.

We knew the queen's end up cloners from the previous years Natal nece side, but we didn't know anything really about how they get their. Clint Perry a cognitive biologist at Queen Mary university of London to observe that phenomenon. Inaction he and his team glued antennas to the backs of twenty Bumblebee, queens, which had been kept under simulated hibernation conditions. The researchers then tracked the insects with radar as they emerged from small dents in the dirt, and they found that bumblebees take wing for only ten to twenty seconds before landing for much longer. Layovers? We were all surprised at the beast spent so much time resting on the ground, and that they seem to sleep for much of this time, even I personally found it amusing and cute that they so often position their bodies. So that their head was under leaf or under grass while they're there, but was still sticking out into the open observations of wild bees confirmed they do this too. And that it wasn't just the transponders affecting the bees behavior as for how the queen's wind up kilometers away from the previous year's Ness site, computer modeling suggests even these short random bursts of flight would do the job. The results are in the journal scientific reports the findings suggest some Queen friendly conservation ideas to it would likely help Queen bumblebees survival. If we establish pollinator-friendly corridors between conserve landscape patches, it means planting more pollinator-friendly flowers and pollinator-friendly trees and flowers year round, the queen's also take shelter in long grass and leaf litter suggesting an intervention that silly little closer to home if you can resist raking that is.

The magnetic field created by the movement of the iron core deep within the planet. The magnetosphere is a shield. Protecting us from dangerous cosmic rays, and it violates like a drum when jets of charged particles from the sun called plasma crash into it. The theory describing this phenomenon was developed in the nineteen seventies. But it wasn't until recently that we had the tools to observe it. In two thousand seven NASA launched five satellites to study, the magnetic fear in a mission called time history of events and macroscopic interactions during sub storms or thymus. We ended up making use of all five at NASA famous prize back very early in the mission. Actually when they were almost in a perfectly straight line. Martin Archer professor of physics and astronomy at Queen Mary university of London and that that was really ideal for trying to. At t's a Paul exactly what happens when something impulsive hits our magnetosphere. So basically, what happened in this particular event is really quite simple. You had a jet of plasma traveling very fast that impacted on the magnitude posers, the boundary of our magnetism fear that then sent out rebels in all directions. Now, some of those will then travel towards the north and southern polls and get reflected back, and it's the interference of the original inflected waves that allows these standing waves to form very much like the surface of a drum, and that gives it a very well defined frequency archers team converted the signals collected by the probes into audio that we can hear they published the discovery in the journal nature communications from the theory behind these drum like oscillations, we know that they should have a big affect they. They should. Penetrates magnetic shield quite far causing motions within regions where there are the radiation belts. For instance, certainly we saw perturbations on the ground in the magnetic field. And that tells us the fear is moving as well. Just in the same way as the boundary is. So it's like one side of the magnetism fear is just all ringing because of this mode, these events occur on a colossal scale. The magnetosphere extends outward about ten times the diameter of the earth archers team has proposed that future. Studies look into ground-based sensing methods that can reveal more about the magnetosphere is behavior. Perhaps there's an important upside in better understanding, our planetary shield.

How when a big group sings happy birthday, the beginning is a jumbled mess with everyone singing a slightly different pitch. But then near the end it all sort of comes together. That's because we tend to adjust our own singing pitch to accommodate others. And now scientists in the UK have found that even trained choral singers will follow their fellow choir members, but not necessarily in the right direction. The researchers asked eight pairs of musically trained amateur singers all women for this study to sing acapella the melody of either silent Knight. Or another classic choir. Tune owes sacred head now wounded. Individual volunteers all saying in their own separate studios under four different scenarios. Each singer was completely isolated hearing only themselves or singer one got to hear singer too. Or a singer to gut to hear singer one. Tasha? We're finally both singers could hear each other. Then the researchers use software to extract pitch information from the recordings, and what they found was that singer stayed more on tune with the pitch written in the musical score. When singing solo verses singing with a partner and when one partner veered off pitch. The other singer followed her perhaps the compensate for the error. Meaning even though they weren't singing the pitch as written the resulting. Duet was more harmonious the findings are in the journal of the acoustical society of America and the results support a common practice choirs put week singers next to strong ones, so they can follow their pitch as for the rest of us amateurs if you find yourself out at karaoke do wedding with an off pitch friend.

An opt-out organ donor system might actually lead to fewer transplants

"Right now let's talk about a another. Very important story donation as we reported earlier the other day they plan from the government. Is t- by twenty twenty make organ donation automatic Basically you have to opt out instead of opting in as millions of us have done you. Have to, choose, to opt out on a registered. Registered you don't want to donate your organs off death and that would mean that would be more dog organs, available for those who are desperately in need we know that people die every, single day for lack of a. Donated organ however a new. Study suggests that the opt-out register is, unlikely to increase the number of organisms at your ever. Donated and could even lead to feel organ donations. But why well as Dr Mukta Osborne who's lead author of the report from Queen Mary university good morning to you Hello Hello now it. Would seem to be rather obvious logic to the more people. Who say that it organs are available so by. Default after their deaths for a transplant it was suggested there will be Morgan's available Morgan transplants would. Take place that's got to be a good thing why does your study what. Is, it what they could be even fewer say what we did in our study was we presented people with a fictional story which basically says he's a tragic. Event that's? Happened, and all we need to know is the person that hit experienced this is on the register today And what we've ERI was whether the denomination. Systems that they were on with I say. The explicitly indicate that you. Want to do yoga NHS or the presumed consent she's what you just described And what we were we included, a couple of others so the keys difference was went off okay. So now the person is registered that walk ins how strong and indicate that is, this all steroid underlying wishes night, what we find is that people judge that if you're on, all, the nation system which. You explicitly indicated you want Stop a much stronger signal, as to you wanting to die Then I presumed consent were an opt out system Well I can understand that that means people yeah people are clear about it and yet Could we not, bypass this, by not having conversations, with family members about these things and and and saying you know unless someone is finally unless, there's someone has, bothered to sign up onto this register will have Elizabeth bliss about it? Then, I'm sorry but there. Is available or. Does, that just get into very difficult situations Crying family doctors wheeling a patient down the hallway to, the surgical theater, which would just be untenable for families and indeed did hospital staff together Say just unpacked, is I think. The key message here is communication is is incredibly cool so I, think this is highlighted in the first of what you're saying which is System Asian gain to help into bypassing sort of what is needed which is a lot more communication with family, members, to say look. Under circumstances where something terrible happens this is really what I want. Because that removes the claim which was as a as the out out, sister say There's. More things that need to be addressed around this organ donation issues than just whether? You, all uptown so there's more that needs to be done but certainly, one of the keys to make sure that people communicating with, each other about what the actual true. Wishes all should something happen is that Dyson family actually to make sort of a monumental decision as this kind yeah I mean it's a very difficult one it seems to me, to be such a no brainer was someone living in my organs all family, members organs, should be available to someone who needs the more than my my me dead, already the family member daddy seems to be. Such a no brainer that I'm amazed that these things, are still issues but we know that they offer.
