In doing so she would acknowledge that her father and not the pope was the Supreme Christian leader. Additionally she would have to accept Henry's marriage to his new bribe and be forced to acknowledge that the marriage to her mother was unlawful. She would be admitting her own status as a bastard. Mary's to guiding principles were her mother and her religion. But she wasn't ready to die. She was beloved throughout all of England and knew that if she acquiesced invited her time eventually she could become queen. So young Mary capitulated with one stroke of the quill. She renounced her devotion to the pope and her mother. Mary knew that under the circumstances she could be forgiven for doing. So by then signing lady Mary's submission as the document became known, Mary came to a significant conclusion never again would she submit to anyone's will one day she would rule over all of England and when her time came any man or woman who had a hand in forcing her to sign the submission would be put to death.

During.

This would essentially make the separation between Mary and Catherine Permanent. Although it broke her heart to do. So Catherine, refused to acquiesce to her husband's demands. Henry made good on his threat. Mary never saw her mother again. In fifteen, thirty, two Henry's quest for religious and royal omnipotence took a giant leap forward. Henry.

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 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. Megan getting hands on with the Grenfell Tower Cookbook. She was in the kitchen. She wasn't just. They're writing forward. So we're really seeing again with Keeton eighteen her Chelsea Flower Show Garden. She really had an active role in that in designing that and being hands on with it so I think I think it's quite nice for the roles to you because they're able to then just really get embedded and get to know the people they're working with and who the
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

This is just an amazing story and we have other stories stories from Jim about different things that he's GonNa share with us and more historians about remember the the group that wants to come on to talk talk about the history of the Queen Mary now we have to go before Disney. We have to talk about the gray ghost. We have to talk about out all of these things of where this ship came from and now is at the port of carnivals port where you could actually stay the night before four. have all your bags brought over to carnival. Panorama and get on that ship and have some more fun so thank you Jim so much. I look forward board again to story time with Jim. Curling up with my coffee and donuts all right well. You know what it's time because I'm getting a a little tired aren't you. Oh my gosh. I'm getting so tired but I'm going to again. I'm GONNA curl up. I'm going to listen to the show again so I missed some of that history. I you're you're sleeping tonight..

"Disney and so what would happen is they would then you know use that option they had on all that additional land that you know rather had had and they would build a nautical theme park that would be called Disney see with no space between the two world words words a marina a cruise ship port that could house up to five cruise ships which would make it the largest cruise ship terminal on the West Coast and there would be expanded retail and and entertainment area and Disney was going to build five resort hotels five premium resort hotels off the this was estimated to cost you know almost three billion dollars almost three billion dollars. That's command what happened in October nineteen ninety one they changed the name from Port Disney to Disney C. which was just the name of the theme park because the port a long beach was going ballistic that that you know if you have a poor Disney and you you have births for the cruise ship and and you have a a marina that has a slip for you know two hundred fifty boats and and all of this you know this is going to be stealing all our businesses creating confusion in the marketplace and now are so so Port Disney's what it was originally called and then in Nineteen ninety-one we shifted to just Disney see you know and Disney was serious about this. They because you know I sometimes I have people say gee you know I I wanna go to Japan Dan and visit Tokyo Disneyland and they've got that other theme park Tokyo Tokyo Disney Sea. I wonder why why they came up with that name. I wonder if there's some Japanese influence flew into the influence was is they took things that were developed for the Port Disney see project and use it in Japan now. There's there's always a sane in in Disney Company. There's never a bad idea or or never an idea. That's never actually thrown away. It's always put away and is used for another time and this is where where you can actually see some of the ideas or Disney see in Long Beach. actually flushed out is in Tokyo Disneyland at Disney see in Tokyo and you're absolutely right there I from the past and when we go through the different sections at Disney see you'll see the direct connection of wait a minute. They were GONNA do a a a a Sindbad Voyage roughly have that overtook his uh-huh and and it's like wait a minute what and again they even had to build a steamship in Tokyo Disney because some of the plans they had were designed for the Queen Mary and again you're not shipping the Queen Mary. I don't know build your own steamship over there. You know so so what were some of the things you so you mentioned that they were going to have a port. There was gonna be able to accommodate five cruise ships at the title. This is before Disney had even one cruise ship because again. What we're talking about here is we're talking nineteen? ninety-one nineteen ninety two and remember. Disney did not announce its cruise line until ninety four writes eat that we're going to build a cruise line in the first ship will be sailing in nineteen. eighty eight what was happening is people in Anaheim Love Disney because it brought in jobs. It brought in tax revenue. You know it but long beach not so filled with the with the Pixie dust not so little we're with them and they were worried about increased traffic it concerns they were. I can concerned about environmental concerns. You know D- Disney is talking about doing all of this landfill. You know a a a a of some of this and and Disney was you know demanding certain things in exchange ensure building there you know like having them build this huge parking garage and then also have an off ramp from the freeway that goes directly directly into the parking garage and the city of Long Beach would have to pay for that you know right they were looking for tax credits tax yeah open you know and and and and so long beach was not so you know enthused about that so basically Disney held community meetings they they publish an issue of what was called the Port Disney news which I'm sure that listeners on this show show will immediately now try to go to the Ebay and try to find a copy. There was only one issue published but it had full color concept art a of of all things that they were proposing they had descriptions of some of these things and again remember all of this at this. This particular point is just blue sky. You know you you haven't gotten to the hard nosed thing of yes. We're definitely going to build this so you know. How much money is that going to cost? And what compromises do we have to make in order for this to get bills and you know that type of thing so so this is all just oh my gosh this is all just wonderful and beautiful you know and and so and so this this complex is is over by Queensway Bay so there are two sides to Queensway based on one side which they called the city side there would be Disney would build three resort hotels and shopping and entertainment areas and they would integrate existing to uh-huh facility. It's like the Hyatt Regency Hotel the Long Beach Convention Center the Shoreline Village The downtown Long Beach Marina arena that type of thing and then it would be connected to the other side of the bay by a monorail which which also went to all three hotels and then we'll take you to the theme park to on the other side there there would be two more resort hotels hotels and a boardwalk and all of this and and outside of the theme park itself is the world court art which would be you would have excursion water fairies that would depart on a regular basis to the Avalon Newport Report Beach Dana Point Redondo Beach. You know it would have a promenade with easy access to the shops and and and restaurants restaurants so so so try again try and think of a theme park type thing surrounded by you know downtown Disney right I think with with with shops and restaurants and all of that and of course the Queen Mary would be there a familiar icon on and there would be laser and firework shows out there on on on the water now to justify doing the landfill Disney he had to include you know marine the marinas and the cruise ship port and the ferry ports and even some sort of an aquarium because there were certain requirements Weyermann's by the coastal commission. You know allow you to do things do that but let's take a moment and talk about the theme park you know the Disney theme park and again. We're we're talking. This is ninety ninety one ninety two you know and they were looking at you know this would get developed within you know five six years and and then again also developed you know in in different phases different phases would would open now one of the things that would make it different different from Disneyland is that it was also educationally oriented okay so in addition to the entertainment aspects ah they're trying to do the the original intent of Epcot Center which was going to be educational or the right The the Living Seas Pavilion at Epcot that type of thing you know you you you've got you've got the you know you've you've got a ride but you've also got these exhibits and things like that now where him and everything yeah and the and and for this dizzy you'd have an ocean area and and I had to learn what is the difference between an aquarium and an ocean area. You know I thought Gee. Isn't that the same thing you've got a bunch of fish in there and an aquarium you separate species of fish an oceanarium just like the ocean. You allow allow them all to interact together. I didn't know that and so instead of a castle they would have a centerpiece called Oshii Anna and it was like these three to six huge bubbles you you know the huge orbs and inside would be ocean area which was you know a-. At least thirty feet deep holding you know ten to twelve million gallons of water and in Oshana they also had the the Future Research Center which was supposed to be a meeting center for Oceana graphic researchers from around on the world and and they even had the ocean outreach center which was a library of the seat. We which was this massive research library very the that you know guests could access scientists could could access all of that now again. It wouldn't just be oh well I can. I can look at the fish. I can go read a book. What good is there would be interactive exhibits because the whole point of Disney we see was that you should learn about the C- appreciate the C respectively so there would be a catwalks that would go over the oceanarium there would be you know portholes along the side. Let's see you could you could look in kids would be able to borrow goggles that allowed them to see the world away. Fish see the world there would be a submarine simulator and and that would take you to various underwater locations locations and there was an exhibit of how to clean up an oil spill and and all of that but you know the real key to a Disney theme park is is the different lands so this was divided so think of oceanic as again these orbs that were sort of dropped in like a pebble into the middle of a lake and then there were ripples that went out you know from that pebble so so this is how this was designed so the different lands one of the lands was mysterious island and and so the icon in this land was a man-made volcano which was always on the verge of threatening threatening to erupt and the whole area was based on the stories of Captain Nemo and his Nautilus Submarine you know because the again the sequel to Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea Jules Verne wrote was mysterious island so that's why the mysterious island and so there would be a ride going to the lost city Lantis there would be higher it island and on that Port Disney news that they sent out to the people in Long Beach to engender support and all that they described pirate island as Tom Sawyer's the island times ten and but no no specifics about what was going to be on there but that and and then they were we're gonNA have Nemo's Lava Cruiser and so this was a roller coaster was a suspended roller coaster so you're hanging being there and and you see you're you know you're strapped. In of course you're hanging there and you're seeing your feet underneath you and your careening through through underground caverns in the volcano which.

"Finally in nineteen eighty they assigned a sixty six sixty six year lease Jack Rather now Jack Rather was quite an entrepreneur you know among other things he owned the properties of the lone ranger and lassie and Sergeant Preston of the Yukon which shit hopefully there's a couple of listeners out there who might remember Sergeant Preston of the Yukon who is was very popular in comic books and on TV and all that and Jack Rather owned and operated the Disneyland Hotel and then also to help juice up tour- tourism to Queen Mary Jack Rather is the guy who brought in Howard uses spruce goose. Is there to to Long Beach now now what happened when we're all Bill Disneyland in fifty five. He didn't have any money to build a hotel but he figured vigor. There should be a hotel a good hotel it didn't exist in Anaheim near Disneyland for for people the State especially people 'cause Walt wanted not to just be a local attraction but a national attraction. It's a attracting from around the country and so rather was was a friend and you know Disney had gone to Sheraton and Hilton and all that and basically the response he got was where's Anaheim Anaheim so rather being an entrepreneur was willing to take a chance so walt least him for ninety nine years years the land right across from the park because Disney had purchased that and owned that ninety nine year lease at a rate of two thousand one dollars a year for the length of the entire lease and hitting me no and Walter so excited what about having a hotel he is so rather own the hotel but the land belong to Disney but it was leased to rather thousand dollars. There's a year for ninety nine years and and then Walt was so excited he also told gave rather and this is in the contract rather had the rights to use the Disney name not only on the hotel but any future hotels hosted rather might build in southern California and Walt would not build a hotel in competition okay. I just have to get get in there one thing. Is this contract still valid yes so he's paying two thousand dollars a year. That's it's less than a single room apartment here in Los Angeles right now. You can what yeah now now you can see when. Michael Eisner came on board. CEO In September eighty four you can see that he was irritated by this contract right because because during this time and when Walt passed away you know Disney tried to renegotiate the contract tried I to buy out rather and all that but nothing you know the contractors solid and and rather was happy with the hotel once we get the eighty four Eisner's really upset. He says look we we've gotta do and so is ner is trying to do all sorts of macintoshes. mcinally you know like wait a minute. We've got the monorail going over to the Disneyland Hotel. You know why don't we charge rather this outrageous amount of money for the use of the monorail you know going to the hotel and rather response with well. We'll just close down that whole section of the monorail yes and and so what happens is Jack rather rather dies all right and Eisner then steps in to negotiate with the family but Eisner being Eisner as ner. WHO's a son of a gun e offers to buy out the entire rather corporation just to get the hotel but he offers six six dollars less a share than the stock was actually selling at the time it. It's the same thing that Eisner did with the Henson so you know the the contract was almost signed and then when Jim Henson passed away he went to the the family and said well now. The Gym is dead is it's worth a lot less so we're going off you you know and that's when the family walked away so again. The rather family didn't want to deal with Eisner Eisner at all. I already had a reputation as a bully and all of that in eighty seven a New Zealand firm came in and purchased about thirty percent of the rather corporation because the rather corporation without having Jack Rather there and change in tastes and things like like that you know the company the corporation was was having some difficulty so it had purchased thirty percent of the corporation and announced announced that it eventually wanted to purchase at least fifty percent and so is never went ballistic be because a foreign country a foreign company would would gain control of the Disneyland Hotel and the right to use the Disney name on any other hotels wanted to build in southern in California so Eisner went to the New Zealand Company and behind rathers back New Zealand that New Zealand firm bought almost fifty percent of the rather corporation Disney bought the rest and six months later Disney bought out out the New Zealand Corporation so so Disney bought the rather corporation for one hundred and sixty one million dollars plus assuming eighty nine million dollars in debt now with all of that just because Eisner wanted the Disneyland Hotel and wanted that contract correct dead now part of the assets that the rather corporation had was it had the contracts and leases leases for the Queen Mary and the spruce goose and there was an area between those two attractions which was called London town village. which was you know a bunch of shops and restaurants restaurants and things like that but rather had intended eventually over there to build this whole retail complex complex with with with hotels and shops and all that so he ended had an option on two hundred and thirty six acres around on that area and this rhyme real estate in Long Beach? Yes on the Eisner took looming that hey look long. Beach is is right. You know for expansion so I you know all all I really want is the the the Disneyland Hotel and we can sell off all these other assets but let's keep the this Queen Mary and and spruce goose and all of this option on this acreage over here because we can develop that so Disney created a company called W. C. O. Port properties. WC Oh Walt Disney Company Right WC oh Fort Properties to oversee the Long Beach property because they didn't officially publicize it as a Disney property it it it was run by this WC oh poor properties and so they went in and they they renovated all of the rooms on the Queen Mary and they created aided. tours like the haunted passage tour the ghost tour of the Queen Mary and Celebrity Tales which was it took yes through various where rich and famous you know stayed and Disney hired a bunch of look alike celebrities to be on the ship. You know sort of like street misfield today so you know. WC fields the Marx Brothers Mae West Clark Gable they hired a Howard Hughes News impersonator to give tours of the spruce goose and all that now again some be your listeners. Maybe so young they go. Who are those people they they were are important celebrities at one point and so you know they upgraded the restaurants and I in fact Jack Lindquist Quist who later became president of of Disneyland was a vice president of creative marketing he brought in Haret's the the famous London department store. I it's I signature. store in the United States was on the Queen Mary it opened in eighty nine there and but Disney goes. How do you bring people down to Long Beach. You know especially since you're not saying this is a Disney attraction so what they did in nineteen ninety is they created a voyage to nineteen eighteen thirty nine year long celebration okay now they picked nineteen thirty nine because the last peacetime voyage before before the before the Queen Mary was converted into a troop transport and then after the war was converted back to a cruise ship but its last peacetime voyage was on August Thirtieth Nineteen nineteen thirty nine so basically what they were going to do for a year is you were going to take this time travel trip tip back to nineteen thirty nine. There would be a bomb voyage party. There would be you know a a show featuring you know these. He's Hollywood celebrity impersonators dancers. There would be big band music. There would be a special clubs thirty nine that was was decorated like a popular nightclub. of the era and cast members were then trained to Internet Internet interact. They were in period costumes. They were trained to interact with guests as if they were nineteen thirty nine passengers going on a cruise so so so people who came to visit the Queen Mary they were given a newspaper each day that had the same date from nineteen thirty nine and featured you know news items and there was the background music with newscasts newscasts and sports results and and things like that and then the London town village that area between Queen Mary and spruce goose they had the Brighton Carnival so so they had children's rides and Carnival Games teams and they had a a flying circus that flew through the air and all of that and people still didn't WanNa come so Disney offered special promotions there were flyers that were handed out at Disneyland offering three dollars off each admission to the Queen Mary for up to ten people people at one point. Disneyland guests were offered free admission into this Long Beach Entertainment Center with every paid admission to Disneyland isn't he land but you know it it. It soon became apparent the people who visited Disneyland really had no desire to rip out the the Long Beach you know and and Disney did a local TV show to to celebrate all of this and and all of that and you know it's it's like we're bleeding money here. You know what's what's the matter nothing that we're doing and Eisner. Eisner wasn't gonNA give up because again nineteen ninety the nineteen nineties. I don't know if people remember this is near declared it was gonna be the Disney decade. Remember that yeah. This is where Eisner was going to make his his stamp you you know on on Disney because when he came in the Disney company was still being run like a mom and pop business really really because that's what that's what it had been and Eisner saw that we can make this an entertainment empire you know and I can can be the emperor and and so there were dozens of projects listed for that and and again the hope was was that when Euro Disneyland opened it was going to be such a cash cow that that would fund all all of these other projects right and so what is me took a look at is look. We're we're. We're losing money every year here on this Queen Mary you know entertainment. a AH complex you know I'm going to double down. I'm going to double down and so in in January of nineteen ninety basically Eisner came out and said we're GONNA as part of the Disney listen decade. We're going to build another theme park and right now. we're thinking about either building a Westcott which was an east coast variation of the Epcot theme park you know right next to Disneyland or building a theme park work in Long Beach and in fact we might even build both and you know so officially in in July hi of nineteen ninety it was announced the Disney had plans to build in Long Beach Port Disney his knee where we're Queen Mary would be the sort of the centerpiece of this and and Port.

"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. Everyone should the CICADA. I know why you're going to come on prime number years. Don't every thirteen or seventeen years. Carter has emerged don't they they do to minimize the chances of their mating year. Coinciding with predators credited exactly that on a Friday afternoon these cicadas smarter than mice from Friday to look. Maybe even smart in nature eh provocative for Dan favorite insect realize possibly the butterfly just purely because I just love the whole process from Chrysalis the butterfly but actually just the sheer variety of butterflies just it's just mind boggling liotta amazing feats of navigation butterflies and monarch butterflies example all the way from Canada down to New Mexico geico kind of thousands of miles

"And then it'll be sold off to another cruise line to another cruise line, but it's unusual for, for, for cruise ship to be around for more than thirty years. Absolutely H-share is fear. That, that's what's so remarkable about the Queen. Mary is that Borg from the ashes of the great depression. She became a symbol of Britain's recovery from the depression. I symbol of maritime might fastest ship in the world for fourteen years. And perhaps the most love passenger ship of all time. I mean, considering that we have some very fine ships in service today, including, especially the one that you're sailing today, which I have a great funded for. But certainly from the last century, the Queen Mary Cam was the torch bearer of, of Cunard in, in passenger ships in general. Now you're talking about the speed record. We all know the, the, the still standing speed record is from the United States. At one point, the United States is speed was considered classified because it was also used as a military ship at one point. But what was the? Speed of the Queen, Mary. Well, the Queen Mary was designed for twenty eight and a half not crossing. That's what they needed to maintain their schedule on the sea trial. So in the first of CLYDE, and March nineteen thirty six ship attained, a dazzling thirty two point I think it was three team not. And I've interviewed several of the captains before they passed on and all agree that the Queen Mary capable speeds up to thirty four knots. Wow. Considering the size of the ship the weight of the ship, otherwise known as its displacement, moving a piece of metal that size in the water at that speed is nothing short of remarkable, and considering that it was created before, even the advent of a calculator to do their tickets on those men that in women that designed the Queen Mary and built they, they used their minds and their hands upon the drafting tool. Going to the paper I kinda feel remanding when it comes to ships, but that's a the ship start. I think I think you're right, and almost all the aspects of that ship all the areas that are still open to the public today. Right. If they're I eighty percent of the ship is viewable to the public either on duck guided or guided George, we have a lot of need tours that we started out we feel too. Commodore ever horn. Always a pleasure to have your board..

"We will answer right here on the air will be doing that throughout the show as fact. But most importantly, when you think about d day. And you think about ocean liners one name coast to mind immediately. We talked about it a little bit earlier on the show. It's actually still one of the largest visitor attractions in southern California, if not in Long Beach, California itself hard to believe it's actually been in Long Beach for, I think fifty years. And that's of course, the Queen Mary, joining me on board is the. The Commodore of the Queen Mary, ever toward nice to have you back on the show, sir. Peter wonderful to be here. Thank you for having me long. I mean, it's hard to believe first of all, that the Queen Mary has been in Long Beach for over fifty years. It's even harder for many people to fathom the role that had played in World War Two. Well, you're absolutely. You're absolutely right about that. Peter. I mean, the Queen Mary was a significant part of the movement of troops and the second World War. She would shoulder some eight hundred and ten thousand troops. Mostly across the North Atlantic for the buildup, the invasion of Normandy. Matter of fact that ship still host the world's record for carrying more human beings on a single ocean crossing than any ship in history, and she left New York down for girl in Scotland in July of nineteen forty three with sixteen thousand six hundred eighty three. Wow. That's a long line for the for the cafeteria. Yeah. It was it was indeed. And of course, you know, that's interesting. You bring that up providing food for all those troops on board. At one time, was something of a of a minor miracle, they would jet steam from the boiler rooms and boil eggs in fifty five gallon drums. Thousand at a time. Meat slicer work, twenty four hours, a day to keep that with the supply of sliced meat. So many of those GI's never seen the sea before much less than crammed in a giant ship like the Queen Mary and carried across the stormy North Atlantic. Well, you were put in the position of a seriously discount cruise. Yes, indeed. But you benefited from the fact that you could make very good speed. You could outrun the u boats and you delivered everybody on time. That's so true, Peter the Queen Mary hell the schedule. She was fast enough to outrun the both in, in the early part of the war. I think she might have been in faster than some of the torpedoes, and although she carried four inch cannon on the stern. Seventy two anti aircraft gun, this ship with never fired upon, and those guns were never fired in anger early practice. And she did run alone across the submarine infested ocean at full speed exacting. She went blacked out radio silent fair, weather, and foul Foggin clear amazing and many, many runs. I mean by the way, the in on this ship, that's sailing to to France that we're on right now. The Queen Mary two we have a number of World War, Two veterans taking the trip. I wonder how many World War veterans have visited the Queen Mary. Well, I've been hanging around the Queen, Mary, thirty eight years, Peter, and I can tell you that literally thousands and thousands of World War, Two veterans have come home to the Queen, Mary over the years on, of course. Nowadays. Not so many portable time as we know must come to a close as for all of us. But, but still, I not long ago actually, on the fourth of April, I had a visitor spend his one hundred birthday. With his family owned the Queen Mary, and he was on the voyage that we call the long voyage, or the voyage of forty days at forty nine which is where the Queen Mary left, Boston down for Sydney, and we'd call it key west Rio de Janeiro, Capetown Bombay poor in eventually to Sydney instill, longest voyage to Queen Mary, whatever make wow, but also, I'm assuming you've had visitors who were part of that sixteen thousand member transatlantic crossing. Yes, we have we certainly have Peter, and it was to hear their story about sleeping in their bunk for eight hours, some of them were even house in the swimming pool because of floor had been put over the tank itself. And the bunks went up to the ceiling in there and they were crammed in there. They called hot bunking. They got the bunk for eight hours than they had to give it up to one of their mate, and go and sleep somewhere in an alleyway or deck there, just simply wasn't enough accommodation for all of the human cargo when I think about how many people that is how, how much they were crammed in. It's amazing. You didn't have any on board fights. Or I'm sure they probably were I know. A few GI set that I've interviewed over the years said, well, it was a floating crap game all the way across. Got it. Visit the Queen Mary now whether they, they were ever on board to begin with or not, what's the biggest surprise for them. Well, the biggest surprise for them. And I think, and, you know, they're, they're several different types of dynamic, and age groups that visit the ship, you know, people that are my age, which, you know, I'm almost sixty they come, you know, with the expect tation of a beautiful history and what ship did in fair, weather, and foul when she was very fashion of the North Atlantic. The younger crowd, the millennial crowd. Well, they are intrigued by the Queen Mary's paranormal aspect, and, you know, the, the Queen Mary is haunted, and is purported to have been for all these years, and I feel like she probably is, and the younger crowd come with some sort of intrigue about that history of best night of her life. And when they get there, the biggest surprise for them is that, yes, they come looking for their paranormal experience. I'm have it some don't but they find what a magnificent and beautiful history that the ship has. And what a price that this ship in the men who. Crossed ship during the second World War paid for the pursuit of peace and freedom. How long did the Queen Mary serve an actor service? The Queen Mary was in active service from may of nineteen thirty six to December of nineteen sixty seven almost thirty one years. Now for I should tell you in cruise-ship genealogy, or lifespan that's way beyond normal life service, normally today, a new cruise ship that comes online will be we'll stay in the fleet of one particular line for maybe twelve years. And then it'll be sold off to another cruise line to another cruise line, but it's unusual for, for, for cruise ship to be around for more than thirty years. Absolutely age serious fear in, you know, that's, that's what's so remarkable about the Queen, Mary, is that born from the ashes of the great depression. She became a symbol of Britain's recovery from the depression. I symbol of maritime might the fastest ship in the world for fourteen years, and perhaps the most love passenger ship of all time. I mean, considering that we have some very fine ships in service today, including, especially the one that you're sailing today, which I have a great fondness for. But certainly from the last century, the Queen Mary, I think, with the torch bearer of, of Cunard in, in past few ships in general. Now you're talking about the speed record. We all know that the, the, the still standing speed record is from the United States. At one point, the United States is speed was considered classified because it was also used as a military ship at one point. But what was the? Speed of the Queen, Mary. Well, the Queen Mary was designed for twenty eight and a half not crossing. That's what they needed to maintain their schedule on the sea trial. So in the first of CLYDE in March nineteen thirty six ship attained, a dazzling thirty two point I think it was three to not. And I've interviewed several of the captain's before they passed on and all agree that the Queen Mary was capable speeds up to thirty four knots. Wow. Not considering the size of the ship the weight of the ship, otherwise known as its displacement, moving a piece of metal that size in the water at that speed is nothing short of remarkable, and considering that it was created before, even the advent of a calculator to do their kick, your son does men that in women that designed the Queen, Mary, and bilk. Her will they, they use their minds in their hands upon the drafting tools. Going onto the paper I can feel I'm a romantic when it comes to ships. But that's how the soul the ship start. I think, you know, I, I think you're right, and almost all the aspects of that ship all the areas that are still open to the public today. Right. If sir, I eighty percent of the ship is viewable to the public either on duck guided or guided George, we have a lot of new tours that we started out. We feel to it. Commodore Evert horn..

In fact, they've always been overused words things like eco-tourism having a children's program, and now of course. Sustainable travel. I have no idea what any of that means. I know what the intention is. But it's actually in the delivery of the service that makes the difference. And of course, now my three favorite words. I use that in quotes genuine authentic and curated that's always been applied to, to travel and marketing travel. My next guest knows a little bit about that, because she's come up with their own definition of those words. She's the deputy editor of a truly great travel magazine afar. If you don't know about it get it. I mean, this is travel writing the way it's supposed to be and her name is Jennifer flowers. How are Jennifer and good? Thank you. How are you were you heard the introduction genuine authentic and curated are you throwing up? Well, it's getting a little over used for sure those words. However, I think there's a lot of sincerity behind the meeting. You know, far was launched ten years ago, hard to believe two years. I am. So I just kind of beside myself, it's been ten years, and it was during a recession. We had a lot of great tap travel publications out there. But we felt like when. We founded the magazine we were speaking about we finally said the word experiential in a way that people hadn't thought about travel before, and I think travel has always been experiential. Of course, we always go to connect with people to see new places to see to walk in a mile a mile in someone else's shoes. But to actually just kind of own that word. And like put it out there it could just kind of had to happen. Of course. Now, everyone's using it, and that's great. But I go back to your aditorial approach, which I always really embraced, which was you're not going to do story in a far on beautiful Bombay or lovely than or magical magical Michigan. Oh my God. No, but you will take me to a part of Michigan that could be maybe one square mile an a small city and open my eyes that I otherwise would have overlooked. Well, thank you. Peter. That's really nice of you to say, we're really proud of the fact that we do that we're always trying to look for angles that really take the traveler outside of the realm that they know. So, you know, one great example of that is Zimbabwe feature that we assigned to someone who's blind Ryan Knighton this amazing writer, his Canadian and he talked about the experience of experiencing wildlife without site, which we go on safari, and we take a million pictures, and we want to get that great shot and share with our friends, but he was touching things and feeling things and even tasting things his safari guide, even gave him a plant to taste that elephants, like to eat, because of the tannin's, and he tried the tannin's in his mouth, kind of, like, you know, dried up like a cotton ball. I mean like things like that. Like it just takes you from one point of view to another. We're. Always looking for that. Even if it's like Paris Paris, is such an iconic destination, but how do we do Paris in a way how do we experience? You're almost obligated to do Paris, because it's the number one list on. Everybody wants to go from the United States lily, and I'm totally all for seeing the Eiffel tower going to the loo going to all those iconic places, but also finding ways to dig deeper. There's, there's this actually this great company that I just came across called vacation with an artist and the founder created, she went to places for an entire year looking for experiences with master artists who have no connection to the travel world. And she puts travelers in touch with those people to do like a print making class in Paris, so you can do your iphone tower experience. And then you can go hang out with a true master in art. Every year, I do a segment on on our show called make it on vacation nothing to do sexually. Go to Maine. Build your own boat. Louisville build your own go to Ramani make your own teddy bear, wonderful right, when it's unbelievable. And people don't really go to, you know, ebor city and make your own cigars. That is so great people, then get a chance to be immersed. There's one guy, I believe he's in Vermont. An amazing furniture maker, and the only challenge that you have is once you build the boatman now what do you do? Bill, the big headers desk in Vermont. It's gotta find his way that next. Yeah. So much shipping problem. Yeah. That you can actually going do that to me is amazing, the hands on experience meeting, the locals who are experts in their craft in this one part of the world. Real find that craft nowhere else. I mean that's beyond exciting for me beyond exciting here we are on the on the Queen Mary two ship. That's now fifteen years old. I was on the inaugural cruise back in two thousand four get nasty. So that old. But it's amazing because we don't want to take that for granted either. I mean, even when the ship today that you looked up, it's a very big show. Oh, yeah. When I looked up, I just had this like these butterflies I myself, I'm like, oh, my God. This, this is such a massive beautiful ship. And then the, the fact that they're going to be commemorating, d day, seventy fifth anniversary just gave me chills that they're veterans on board that they're going to be going to this destination and experiencing something that changed the tides of the world. I mean it's so monumental and so exciting to be here today and thinking about that when you're young chance when we finished our talk today you should walk around the deck here and see all the historic photographs of Cunard in World War Two. Wow. The Queen Mary Queen Mary, the originally. Mary was a troop. Carrier will were to it. Still holds the record for the most number of people ever carried on a ship. Oh my gosh. I exchanged thousand. Oh my goodness. I have no idea. You photographs. It's like talk about. Low-fare airlines, this was surely, we can complain all they want about our coach seats. The, the men and women who crossed on the Queen Mary during World War. Two didn't even have see. That's hard core. That's really hard. It's unbelievable. Unbelievable. But that's so much history. That's amazing. Oh my goodness. What when you guys do even crew stories. Right. I mean, I'm sure you want, you really want to dig down immersive Lii and figure out the process. Yes, for sure, one crew story that I assigned recently, we went to southeast Asia, or just Asia not southeast Asia. But we had the writer explorer, what it feels like to arrive and kind of like be immersed in a destination, and then another one, and then another one in have all those pieces kind of come together instead of like kind of like having that kind of time to think on the ship like having that time at see, I think it's a really cool meditative way to travel, actually you about the entire show. I love the idea of five days. Yeah. No, for me like on a personal level. I just love being on the water. There's just something so peaceful about it. It's just changes everything I used to spend summers in the San Juan islands in Washington state with my dad like on the boat for days and just it just feels so good. And the and even a daylight today with, like, seventy something degrees, and like clouds like just very few clouds in the sky. It's just I love it. I love it. This is one where you say to yourself. Give me every hardcover book, I want yet I want to hold it in my hand yet. I reckon, I'm gonna disconnect and see on the other side when we come back more with Jennifer flowers from afar magazine.

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.

All winter not bears bumblebees specifically the queen's which emerged from hibernation in the spring to establish new colonies a bit of a trek away. 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.

This is scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Jim, Dave. That's strange sound. It's earth's magnetic fear. 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.

"So I'm telling you is very fun, authentic experience. You probably you really can't get anywhere else, but the Queen Mary dark harbor. So I feel it was a little dangerous, the metal stairs in the dark. There are a lot of really dark parts, which was scary. But again, me being like. A square. I kept thinking, well, I'm about to fall and bust my and the other part of it was that it was very crowded. So I'm telling you it was opening night. Everybody wanted to be there. So they slowly let everybody into the maze. And I think because of the nature of the maze is how there's so much to see. Sometimes they would get a little bottle neck, so there'd be like a ton of people trying to get through. Imagine like a line to go to the bathroom at a concert, but you're in a haunted house on a ship. That's what it felt like insert points. So that was a little too much for me like, oh, I'm on metal stairs in the dark with strangers all around and we're all in a line trying to get out that happened. If you times there was a little scary. So if you're into that kind of thing, you would really love this that didn't happen all the time, but it did happen if you times. And I feel again, that's the nature of being on a ship while in a haunted maze. So that were those were the things that I felt were a little uncomfortable for me, but, oh, and the other thing, and this is again more of a personal preference. If you are a person who likes to go to haunted houses during this time of year, then you know all the tropes of the haunted houses. One of the ones that I am kind of over is losses stuff hanging down in your face that you have to physically move out of the way with your arms the Queen. Mary loves this. Okay. Like big dirty burlap strips, like old clothes, like like Fisher way through by the end the night I was like a nephew with a dirty old strips in my face. I had to win there so many dirty strips. I mean, they were coming at me in every maze. I feel like I had to duck a lot. I felt like I had to walk with my back crook. Like, you know, I had to crouch while walking, so there's a lot of little tiny spaces. There are certain parts where you can crawl and then they also have an. Option for you to not crawl because they know people are, you know, like a Honey, I'm over this shit, but if you're into that again, you're gonna love it. It is cold and flu season, so I was a little like get dirty strips out of my face. But you know what, again, that's part of what we do. Let's see. Yes, I was wearing two hundred fifty dollars to religion jeans. Big mistake do not dress up. If you go to the Queen Mary where you're play clothes, get ready to get dirty and raw because like I said, you're gonna be rubbing up against people. You're going to be rubbing up against ghouls. You're going to be walking through a bunch of dirty burlap strips hanging from the ceiling. You're gonna, you know, you might be crawling. So don't wear your nice clothes. That was a mistake. And then Lastly, I just wanna say, I didn't get to see the captain walking around, but on the website is makeup, looks incredible. He's like a ole sea-captain that clearly like went under and the barnacle sort of grown on him and stuff. It sounds very exciting, but that's the whole scoop for Queen Mary dark harbor.

Now back to the story. When the second World War began its destructive March across the globe, the Queen Mary was called to serve as a troopship transporting troops to and from allied ports. The biggest threat to allied troopships were German new boats which sank almost three thousand allied ships during the war, but the Queen Mary with a top speed of thirty two point. Five knots could out run the enemy torpedoes which had top speeds of only twenty five knots. This made the Queen Mary of formidable tool. Long before sunrise on the morning of October. Second nineteen. Forty two Glenn petty officer aboard, the HMS cure soa, took a break from cleaning the oil drums and made his way above deck for smoke. Glenn tossed an oily cleaning rag over his shoulder smearing his uniform and looked out over the icy waters of the Atlantic. He took out a silver lighter and lit his cigarette. That lighter was the only possession he'd managed to save from his home before it was destroyed in the blitz. Touching that charged later somehow calmed Glenn's easily seasick stomach. It reminded him of why he was there. The bow, the cure soa, cut back and forth, and zigzag over the waves to confuse any German u boats that might be lurking beneath the surface with the ship, the size, the motion made Glenn constantly feel off balance. The cure soa was big, a c class cruiser built for the British Royal Navy, weighing over four thousand tons and boasting anti aircraft guns and torpedo tubes. It was a formidable craft, but it was only intended as an escort, the cure soa and its crew were often dwarfed by the troopships they escorted and the ship. They recording that night, made them look like a wooden dinghy. Glenn looked out at the impenetrable darkness of the ocean and thought about how the whole bloody war was like taking a boat across deep fathoms, waiting for some unseen enemy to break the surface and swallow you whole the constant paranoia kept him up at night. Well, that in the dreams of explosions, he still had a ringing in his ears that he suspected would never go away. Suddenly the ringing in Glenn Sears was cut through by much louder sound, but clanking of the ship's alarm bell bracing himself. Glenn scan the surface of the water looking for the nose of U-boat or even worse the frothing V-shape that marked approaching torpedo. But it was not an enemy that Glenn saw it was the vessel. They were escorting a fellow British ship known as the gray ghost. Her whole painted, an Ashy gray color emerged silently the fog, like some forgotten leviathan towering above Glenn. She was headed white for them for a split. Second, Glenn was back in the London shelter listening to the approach of German bombers waiting for death to come on fiery wings. Glenn dive to the side as the Larr. Ship slammed into the side of

I'm like, oh, I know, because it's like the way people keep telling me to watch that one home we movie, what is it? What? Hocus pocus and I won't do it because the more people tell me to do it, the less I want to do it. I'm just a child. So you can't tell me to do something 'cause I won't do it anyway. It's Baggins. Zach, Zach, bagel bites. And so I don't even know if that's the right show, but he said, oh, there's that show with those guys that do go s- things and she's good friends with them. I was like, oh, that's cool. In my mind. Guys do that show. But so anyway, he said that they went to the Queen Mary one time, my favorite and half hatch Henry. Remember we talked about him. Yes, where he got locked in. Yeah, apparently they went on a tour and the guy was telling the tour of what happened. Apparently, half cherry came through boy through the wife and got very irritated. Oh boy, it was like, this is insulting. That's not how it happened. That's not the story. My, that's not my name every all of these facts got let out. And apparently now because of that experience, the tour actually has changed their tour where they use his actual name or they don't use his name anymore. They use it for a little bit. And then I guess for some reason, they don't do it anymore, but they know his actual name now something like John Patterson. It was something very like, right, like half hatch Henry's a cooler name, I think. But so they will tell the story that they originally told and and said, we recently found out that that's not true. You and this real repeat after that cert- happening. Apparently, her husband then became a vessel of sorts that hatch Henry came through and apparently hugged his wife, hugged the wife and a very weird way where she knew it wasn't. Her husband was talking her rose and said, thank you so much for telling everyone. So apparently. So that's, that's that on that contact him if you would like, I mean, let's call them right now. We can have him on the show. Okay. So there's that next is the Deirdre story update very quick. I loved your updates. So last we were at chief ounded decomposition body stain.

And so she was recently in the city and so she was about to get an Uber and when she got in the car that Uber drivers said, so what's the weirdest Uber driver experience you've ever had? And she said something and he was like, well, I'm about to top it and then said, so I'm very sensitive and I can see things when you're walking over to my car. There was a massive shadow purse. Okay. Okay. All right. Okay. What stop and then what the fuck. And then he said like he was trying to get in the car with you and your is he here with us now? And he said, no, because my car is blessed. What which my car isn't blessed? Like what the hell am I not bless our cars. Anyway, that defying hold on. So it's still with her apparent or something's with. I'm just gonna.

So we're talking about calcium with a phosphorus surrounded by oxygen? And then there's an OH sticking out on the side. Yes. So when it comes to tooth decay. I mean, what are the key factors that really matter? The first stage of tooth decay is the loss of the mineral components. And so that's the loss of calcium phosphate from the tooth structure. What's likely to drive that's driven by effectively acid dissolution? So it's the acids from either from metabolism of sugars bacteria in the mouth or acid. You're taking into the mouth like fruit juice, apple juice, Siddiq. Teas Coca Cola. Ironically. Of course, we're told that we should be drinking lots of fruit chews because that's good for us. And what is it about fruit juice, which which might actually drive? This loss of mineral wool is not just the acidity. That is important. It's also the fruit juices often have components in the which bind up the calcium. In other words, these are molecules which could grab onto the calcium. They grabble onto the calcium. So the question then is what what is fluoride actually doing to the tooth itself? Or to the mineral the fluoride changes. The crystal structure, which is the basic building block of the enamel and result in the crystal structure of being more resistant to acids, how does it actually do this? I mean, we have calcium and phosphate in the mineral where does the floor. I go. The fluoride swaps for the hydroxy group. And so in the mineral structure, there is an H minus is an OH minus which is replaced by an F Phineas. And so what's what's beautiful about? It is that the the electrical charge is the same achieve the fluoride is slightly smaller. That's what gives it the benefit because the OH minus actually slightly to bake to fit in between the calcium ions. Crystal structure was the fluoride ion actually fits right in the space between the calcium lines. And so in doing so presumably in a sense, it strengthens, or at least it it stops the calcium being so easy to dissolve exactly..

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.
