But more and more often now the ground floor's air filled in. They'll have beachy names and are painted beach colors. Most of those built after Hurricane Fran hit the coast in 1996 are three stories tall and look almost suburban. This place was vast and airy kitchen table sat. 12.

V's that our shorthand for Siegel, a sampler on the living room, wall read old Shell er's never die. They simply conk out on the round clock beside it. Numbers lay in an indecipherable heap. As if they had come unglued just above them were printed the words who cares? This was what we found ourselves, saying whenever anyone asked the time. Who cares? Day before we arrived at the beach. Tiffany's obituary ran in the Raleigh News and Observer. It was.
"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.

How Do Roly-Poly Bugs Work?
"Potato boats pillbox doodlebug, really police. They looked like a gray shrimp crossed an Armadillo and they seem to have a different name everywhere. They're found though the scientific name for these armor-plated little creatures is armed lithium vulgarity. With twelve known varieties of roly-poly bugs found in the United States alone these tiny crustaceans inhabit the northern and central parts of the country as well as many dark damp places across the world, and yes, they aren't insects, but crustaceans like crab lobster. They're the only stations that have adapted to living completely on land, though like their other station cousins, they breathe through Gills, so they have to keep to areas with plenty of rain or groundwater, and even then prefer damp spaces where the sun can't dry them out. And while you may not love having a cool dozen of these little critters popout when you move a flowerpot Cheka crawlspace. They don't bite staying or carry disease, and there is a very real benefit to having them in your backyard garden. It all starts with the microbes within the confines of the Raleigh Police Innards these microscopic gut, flora and fauna help really police breakdown dead organic matter. Raleigh police. Are Detroit devore's meaning? They get their nutrients by eating stuff that other plants and animals leave behind decomposing plants that animals and poop. Scientists have shown the benefits of the Raleigh. Police Diet on soil. They positively affect the ecosystem that they're in by increasing the mineral content of the soil, essentially turning the waste, they eat into healthy soil. But, it's not just what roly-poly bugs add to the soil. It's what they take out to. It turns out that these guys don't mind heavy metals. After studying the composition of their insides, scientists found that roly-poly bugs can crystallize stuff like lead, cadmium and arsenic in their guts, both preventing these toxic materials from harming themselves and taking them out of the environment. Meaning a construction site contaminated with heavy metals could effectively be cleaned by a bunch of hungry roly-poly bugs. Raleigh police will eat tender plant shoots if there is nothing else available, but it's not their preferred diet, and these bugs will also eat the eggs of some insects that are more inclined to gardens and crops, so they could be a great form of pest control and are sometimes used organic farming. So if you're noticing roly-poly, party taking place in your backyard. Don't worry. These little guys are doing a lot of the heavy lifting involved in creating the healthy soil that will help your garden Thri.

"A few minutes there at a Raleigh wealth solutions dot com the guys that we talk about a number of different issues here every weekend on the show but we've been talking for awhile about the issue with a lot of pensions and there's a school finance researcher who is warning of what he calls a ticking time bomb that's built into teacher pensions he says those pension plans that were seventy percent funded before this downturn are now only about fifty percent funded and I mean it's not just teachers other public pension plans are facing similar underfunding problems so I'm guessing that sooner or later some of these plans might run out of money but what happens to those depending on those benefits then other trouble yeah posted a pension benefit guarantee fund and you're going to get a percentage of what you're actually promised we know the coronavirus is pummeling investment markets and and what they're talking about these teacher pensions are going to you know the costs are going to spike next year public pension funds that are heavily tether to the stock market and woefully underfunded have lost you know and close to a trillion dollars in value or or twenty one percent this year according to reset you know motors report so what it means is that states districts are likely going to have to contributes significantly more money next fiscal year to continue paying out retirement benefits to a rapidly aging teaching force and really that's his teacher work forces you to aging a US work force right the boomers which is our our largest demographic as they're going into retirement by the thousands every day and to prevent these pension plans from class of businesses are having to do the same thing and it's scary for people and and it's one of the things we talk about we see a lot of companies not just here in the triangle but all around the country use of covert nineteen as a reason to lay people off to not bring them back to give the short little severance packages Sir you know what we call our aid resource actions we won't mention any companies by name but we're see if this happened to hundreds and thousands of people and what I think is really important when this stuff comes up Jennifer's that is that people understand what their options are like Hey if you do have a pension well should I take the pets are from the company or do I you know take that in a lump sum right and and we've put out some reports and done some case studies for people but this is something that we take people through step by step you know in terms of what we're looking at it too in case design on building somebody's customized retirement plan we look at all those options would we do with the four oh one K. you talked about health care earlier in the program how do we bridge people say you're in your late fifties early sixties with health care to get you to sixty five where you're eligible for Medicare and that's that's a big expense for people that several hundred dollars a month it could be if you're married couple in the late fifties early sixties to could be a thousand to two thousand dollars a month if you don't have those coverage walking people through those types of land mines a kind of navigating through that to get you to it's sixty five for its Medicare then you can get a supplement that is typically a lot more affordable is a big part but pensions understanding what your options are and how your plan works and is it better for you to take the pension through the company or to bring that money over into your own IRA and do something on your own is very unique and really depends on everybody's individual situation but you know this report this ticking time bomb you're right on it is just you know one of the few things today I agree with on the show a hundred percent these pension plans are ticking time bombs for sure because where were they going to get the money they are getting pummeled and now you need these companies you need state you need districts to contribute significantly more money want to make up for the people already taken out and that the people that are going to be going in where is this coming they're not right they they're not good stimulus package to fund pension plan no they're not and you know I think a lot of us would might have a problem with that because again we didn't make the promises with these pension funds but at the same time the people counting on those benefits they certainly work hard for it and they deserve it so it's a conundrum guys and I know a lot of our listeners might not have a pension but I worry about this you know what if it's taxpayers who are asked to step in and help fund these pensions I mean this could have ripple effects for other retirement savers to for the whole economy that is exactly right because somebody's got to bail it out right and ultimately who are the people the people working there the taxpayers that are that the people that are working in a that's where they got a turn to yeah I mean when the government rights is blank check so that comes from writing those checks right now I can't ride in a taxi cast guess who that's you know as the people out of work in it and that's the thing that you know keeps me up at night is like who's going to pay for their success up papers as I would get ready to go to retirement or is our kids and grandchildren that are going to be paying for all these things that are going on right now but at some point in time robbers going to hit the pavement and people are going to be you've got to balance the books you've got a he just can't say we're going to keep writing this stuff and look I am all for us our government writing checks and get us through this pandemic and and keep in business is alive and stuff but it's just like anything else you're seeing all the abuses yeah no all the abuses that are going.

Actually care about what you're. Right so I want the fullness up them on the the rawness its beautiful I want to share that with you. It's ugly I. WanNa. Hold that with you. Whatever it is I want to be there with you in this space. Now I know that they're asking me legit question, so I don us now. Bilas turn like yes. He'll some type of way I kinda? Wish a bitch would. Then in this space. But I'm also grateful that I get the be there with my clients as we move through this together. Yeah, you know I think there is something really powerful about that right because you know of course in our training. Don't make the therapy about you that kind of thing, but that's not what this is right. This is a shared space of humanity, especially given everything happening in the world right now you know so I think it is important that win clients. Ask You our you doing that. It's okay to share. Human's a human without it becoming about you. Exactly. Yeah, it's like hey, all this I. Appreciate Your asking me and checking in, but let's look like. Let's get back to you. Always rerouted right. You've definitely not about me, but they're just certain candidates that I've been examining myself throughout. The ethics of our practices in Raleigh right and in my quest to continue to divest from white supremacy whiteness. Myself and the therapist hired. This is part of the work that we are doing that. I'm just like no. We have to examine the ethics in all none that came my way. Does it actually make sense for the people we serve become songwriting know that mental help industry has historically been white male folk it's. That has been the case then. Chances are the ethics that they let us have. Our white male focused. Driven and driven by capitalism white supremacy. Additional work. Come on with this open in prayer. Come on come on. Yeah absolutely I mean, and I don't think it's any like accident. Right that in our facebook groups right in the black facebook groups with their busy that we will often talk about how our practice looks very different. You know like there are lots of things that we have been taught that we figured out. Don't work for US and don't work for the clients that we serve exactly yeah. Absolutely absolutely so I am thankful for you joining us, you know I know. We had a little bit of a back and forth like. Does it feel okay to do this? Does it feel you know wrong? So like do an insecure recap, but also decided that that happiness, and and you know the the warm hug is how I describe. It felt like we got on Sunday night. was something also be celebrated into? Give people a little bit of a reprieve right that we can continue to focus on the fight, but also have moments where we are being restored and celebrating joy and. And for Black People George seeking joy seeking pleasure seeking peace, all of these things are revolutionary as well. These are not things that have been afforded to black beat, so we do deserve moments where we get to re engage with things that help us to feel good that make us laugh that make us engage in a different way. We can still fight this fight, and we are so fighting this fight, even in the midst of rest, even in the midst of seeking pleasure.
Real estate disruptors got disrupted by COVID-19
"In a growing number of cities. If you want to sell your house you can get an instant offer from tech enabled companies known as either buyers. If you accept the company may fix up the house a bitch then turn around and sell it within a few months at a tidy profit amidst the pandemic the four biggest I- buyers open doors Zillow offerpad redfin. All temporarily stopped buying houses and March in some cases backing out of deals and laying off staff but now buyers are starting to come back. Mike del Preti has been following this corner of the market. He's a scholar in residence at the Leeds. School of business at the University of Colorado Boulder. Fundamentally I bein. Transfers the risk of selling ones home from the homeowner to the I. Buyer and and somebody needs to pay for that and that's typically the fee that an eye buyer charges of before the pandemic the average fee buyer would charge around seven percent but now the question is are consumers willing to pay ten to twelve percent for the ability to sell their home in this in this environment. I think that's that's one of the big questions that they're going to look. Some housing analysts are expecting home prices to fall this year. What does that mean for this model? If these companies can't buy a house and turn around and sell it at a profit typically an IBM will hold a home for about ninety days So I think the loss of depreciation relatively small but it just goes to the question of fees. If they're going to lose money on that they have to make money somewhere. It's just going to be there. Have to charge higher fees. Do you see all the buyers surviving. I think the IB model will survive. I'm not quite sure of all of the I. Buyers will there's only a very small number of of serious buyers out there zillow offerpad they're not little scrappy. Startups that You don't have a lot of capital these are all very you know. There's a very small number of dig. Well capitalized companies here. So I think you know. They have the runway to To get through this. It's just what the future holds. And that's that's a bit uncertain at this point. How is the pandemic changed? The way they actually do business in terms of buying and selling which has been made harder by social distancing requirements the social distance requirements is. Actually this unintended advantage of the I. Model they can enable consumers to transact the house without interacting with somebody else if you want to buy a home from an eye buyer because they own those homes empty you can go visit them. You can tour it on your own. You don't even have to go with a real estate agent that's an activity that only I- buyers can facilitate just by the nature of their model. So the new programs the ivars rolling out there all about doubling down on that unique competitive advantage they have compared to anybody else in the market when you and I have talked before I think we've both been surprised how much people are willing to pay or give up in terms of profit on their home for convenience and for the certainty of making a sale. How do you think that equation changes in a down economy? I think that the appeal is still there. And if you need to move and you're in kind of a cool market where you don't know how long it's GonNa take to sell your home. The appeal of going to an eye buyer is quite strong and I think folks would be willing to pay for that if that he gets up there too high. It does feel a little bit anti-consumer so that's the billion dollar question. Is What will consumers be willing to pay for that convenience uncertainty in a post on quarrel? Mike del Preti is a scholar in residence at Cu Boulder last year. I- buyers accounted for just one percent of overall home sales according to Red Fin. But del Pretty points out. It's not really a national market yet. The model works best in cities like Phoenix. Las Vegas Charlotte. We're houses or affordable and pretty similar making it easier to price them with an Algorithm Raleigh North Carolina was the top market with. Ibm's making up about eight percent of sales
Tomato Success with Craig LeHoullier
"You're also like a lot of people this year though you're sort of exploring new territory literally you are but a lot of people. There's been this enormous. I mean I was talking again for that story in. The Times talked to thome stearns of high mowing organic seeds and he was saying they had a three hundred percent increase in Gardner Home Gardener sales this year and some weeks. They were up as much as five times normal week to week. And and so many people gardening garden centers or having bumper business even though with the restrictions and so forth on on on shopping. And so you know you're a little bit of a new gardener too because you're new snow as you're absolutely right and the PRI the perfect timing of our move at a time where you know there are some really real challenges and difficulties with covert. I get to go through and share an experience of what it's like to garden in a new zone in a new area when confronted with New Space. New Decisions to make. So I you know all of us you and I are both and there was many of educators and in garden coaches and people who are trying to inspire new gardeners to stay gardens forever. So I'm hoping that opportunity allows me to share what I'm doing the things that succeed the things that go wrong. I'll be very open about all of it and then learn what. I can about gardening in Hendersonville in my particular yard this year. And we'll make some adjustments next year so I am you know. I've been gardening. Forty years to be able to still be as excited about gardening. Forty years into a hobby is just to me It makes it a very unique cobby. Don't you think and we'll also give people the heads up that you've been doing these really fun which I've been coming to. Instagram lives on Fridays. And sometimes at other times Friday afternoons and you're at NC tomato man on instagram. And you people can like ask you questions the new show us how you're doing things and what stage the plants are out and I mean they can just chime in and say what do I do about this. How do I stay that? What so? Let's talk about some of the things I mean I think in Raleigh you grew in Straw bales and in growing bags that were set on the surface of your very famous driveway. Your driveway driveways right. Yes and where? Where are you growing tomatoes and other things now? Are you growing in daggs in bales? Are you growing in the ground? What are you doing now? So we're we have about a quarter of nacre backyard that is quite sunny and but we have our septic field back there so one of the things I did not rush into is getting a shovel and digging up the soil I learned a lot about container gardening. Straw Bale gardening but will focus mostly in container gardening. And we'll definitely growing. I garden for years and years and years traditional garden. And so you never really forget about that experience. But it's it's a work in progress because I've got. Let's see twenty nine plants planted but another seventy or eighty that needs to get in there and they will probably go into ten gallon. Containers grow bags. You know. Maybe some going container. So it's you're catching me where it's a work in progress and figuring out day by day as I go along. What's the worst thing you ever did to a tomato may? Maybe the worst thing that ever did to to a tomato when it still rewarded me is we do seedling. Sales in the spring and all gardeners have lots of things that you don't sell. Don't get given away get forgotten. They just sit there so I had some sun goals that were at least two months past sales type they were. They were a foot and a half tall of just a stem with maybe a few leaves coming off it and they even. They didn't look very good. So I'd find those and thinking. Oh I've got space for another son Gold and they just bury. It is deep as I can and it leaves out in it produces delicious son go so I guess. The moral of the story is tomatoes. Tough gardeners I think in general especially new gardeners really. Don't WanNa make mistakes and we tend to maybe over care for and baby are plants. And I've learned through the years that tomatoes really do respond well to some tough love along the way. There's very few things that actually will kill them and make them disappear. Some of those things have teeth and But yeah they're very forgiving and You know we'll probably talk through some tips in this in this chat we have about what do you do? What are the things to do to help build in quality from the Front? And what are the things you do over the course of a season to ward off really sad stories and just put a smile on your face at the end of the season. Because you've you've succeeded you've got what you want. You've got delicious tomatoes and on the table in jars in the Freezer. So you just talked about that stretched out spindly overgrown overdue transplant of the Sun. Gold and how you can really deep also up north. We haven't planted because it's been snowing and stuff and even in a lot of other places people quite a bit to the south halfway between you and me or more people have had some frosts recently. It's been really nutty so not to worry. If you haven't planted yet folks I have a friend who even here up north one year. He was so busy with work assignments. He didn't plant tomatoes till July fourth weekend and he had the best rocky ever had but one of the things with an overgrown planners Finley plant like you said is planet really deep because they can make those adventitious roots off the stem right. There are plant. That can do that. So they can. Really root in Super deep not suffocating. It right absolutely and I actually also plant eggplant peppers deeply a As a few friends of call me I tend to be a bit of a rule breaker and yes. I read books and I read blogs but then I kind of put my thinking cap on and I think why can't I try this? And it has helped me to develop some new variations on techniques through the year and You know succeed more often than not. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA plant deep. I plant even a normal six inch. Kind of a seedling. Stout small seedling. That's maybe six weeks or so growing. Muno that I might have grown myself. I plant them deep. Do you take off the lower leaves. Do you create a splash like barrier to get prevents fungal spores from the soil from getting up onto that plant. Like what's your sort of I. How do I put it in the ground? And what am I thinking about? When I'm transplanting? So great question and it's a it's a really wonderful thing for beginners to consider as well because You may you may be looking to garden area. That's been gardened a long time he may be looking at something that you're just digging for the first time yourself. You may have a container. I think it's really good right from the start Your stand we're kind of soil you've got so is it. Does it dream? Is You if you dig a hole in? It rains that rain still there the next day or do you dig a hole in it. Rains and the water gone in five seconds. That tells you if you're to sandy during too quickly you're not retaining water so those roots are always going to be searching or if you've just got so much So much of a barrier to drainage that your roots are literally going to drown the plants. GonNa look like it's dry because it's wilting. But it's actually drowning because it's not getting oxygen so working organic matter and soil and maybe sending the sample off to an extension service just to get an idea if your three main trans n. p. k. nitrogen phosphorus potassium are in good balance At that point on you just dig a nice like you said Various much as the stem as you can or if you dig deep you can dig. How're you can dig diagonal and kind of been the plant in? Berry that stem because of photo tropism the plant grow up right. It may stick out of the ground bent but it will go right up toward the sun. It's almost like a trench and the two thirds of the stem is below. The root ball is at one end. Say at the left and then the most and sort of been the upper part in the upper couples. That's up and then you fill in that trench and your tomato will again. Can you say it will grow up
Churches, sheriffs push back against North Carolina orders on indoor worship

Will Covid-19 have a lasting impact on the environment?
"The pandemic hit air travel in the US is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become unnecessary. Many of you are asking what impact this is having on the environment. So Lauren. Summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius. What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lauren yeah so as you might expect is having an effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen and this is all over not just the US. So scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If this activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions for this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it maybe sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or during World War Two. But here's the thing that is about. The level scientists save world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out shutting down. The economy is not the way to reach. Those long-term emission cuts right. It's these bigger emissions changes like switching to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. Beautiful spring filled with crystal clear. Low humidity days here in North Carolina because having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather but about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather. Here I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities gotten cleaner. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down forty fifty percent. Planes are not flying either so that's actually helped improve local air quality but it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and trucks are still on. The Roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the what are they trying to understand exactly. Yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. They don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic could cause environmental damage? The here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increased fast action Styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible negative effects on the environment from the Corona virus? That's a good point. All of these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seen masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. The pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic. Waste for example California. Just put a sixty day pause on. Its plastic bag ban. And that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure environmental groups. They've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually just temporary measures and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste comeback at some point
The Logic of People
"Everybody welcome back to the people process. Progress PODCASTS I'm your host Kevin Panel this episode twenty the logic of people in. We'll see why I'm calling that here in a little bit as we talk more with my Matt Schmitt. Ceo OF PEOPLE DOT AI. And thank you again for everyone. That's listen download subscribe. Please give us a rating out. There obviously more stars as good. Help US bump up to the top and share more great stories. Like we're GONNA get today talking with that and so today we'll learn about Matt where he grew up those kind of things Matt. Thank you again for being on the PODCAST. Really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you this evening. No Problem Kevin. Thanks so much for having me cool. So he mentioned. Let's you know the people process progress right so we're learning about you. Cover in the people component obviously a lot of process which is great. I'm excited to have that conversation and share that with other people all the processes you've been through in in in the industries that you've been part of and then of course share with folks As we make progress so kind of jumping into it. Where where are you from? And where did you grow up? Yeah so grew up in eastern North Carolina North Carolina's one of those interesting states. That has this island in the middle between the beaches and the mountains and everything in between is a farm country in in SPLAT and So I grew up in the farming country and was driven to build to get into technology and build a way to escape from the lack of of technology and progress in So came up to to the island here in Raleigh and went to College at NC State. That really kick me off in my My Journey Nice did you were you into technology. Maybe a lot. Were you excited about it or into it when you were younger like did you enjoy like Atari intendo or things like that? Did you have kind of a? You know an attraction to that and I'm GONNA be dated. I'm forty six. I may be older than ordering us. No totally totally had had all those things and you know we had. We had dial up internet. Remember getting my first computer and being intrigued by the potential of that and quickly taught myself how to program and That was really the first you know way to to begin. Escaping on started helping people build websites Back when I was a teenager and so that I've always had that sort of that entrepreneur. Draw ever since I was really young and That seems I've carried well for me did you. Did you get into any particular kind of code you know doing websites begging HMO or or just kind of a little bit everything a little bit of everything early on You know heavily into html and you know even before this was before there was really CSS and early into Java script and then quickly into building programs in basic and And then moving into languages like Java as I taught myself more and more about how to program it was really the I in the early days. It was really driven by You know funny enough as I had a an early computer and we had this. We had the dial up internet and I was really one of the things I was really driven by was. Hey you know. We don't have Microsoft word. I really think I could build something like that. That was foolish of me in the early days while ambitious vision ambition. Never Was Never Short on my in my youth man edge and that with Imagine right now what we're going through with dial up all. I don't understand the true pain that that is a you know when you had to have a separate phone line just so you get kicked off right Yeah that I I think I told some of the other day guys. We head this pandemic during the eighties or even the early nineties How much worse it would be and you didn't get your free Internet. Cd in the mail may trying to figure out how to get into AOL right. You're it'd be along in. Would you know what that's also included that bug of doing that making Got TO NC state and so did you major in computer science or similar a major there. Eso majored in computer engineering and computer and electrical engineering because Foolish me I thought I wanted to actually build the parts of the computer that I wanted to program them until I learned that I hated. Physics hunts so that that really kinda pointedly you know. I still went through with the computer engineering and the electrical engineering but was really focused on programming. And the more computer science aspect of it was doing that all throughout college and That was really where I found a guy connected with my partner. These on Long before it was called We started to build a business together. So were you you met at college. Yeah so he had a business that was had relocated from New York and was in Kerry and he was looking for some people to join his team. And this was in. You know I guess. Mid Dot Com crash Here And so you know. I joined in. You know everything plummeted as know. Our customers lost their customers. And so on and we had this great website called Java lobby and We figured out how to sell ads around and that was really the start of it as we built some interesting technology and learned how to publishers in turn that into a building one of the world's largest developer portals Diese wow I mean that's pioneering stuff right and then there weren't as many tools right to be able to that kind of wrote a lot of scripts for you or helped you along. So did you all have to do a lot of you know just a lot of hours in front of the keyboard. And you know mapping and work like that. Yeah this was you know long before you could really you know there were You had to build everything in those days send so there were know the early days of even things like Google ad sense in go blab words in those types of things. But you know we were. We had to build our own community software And so it was. This was even probably before the May have even been before blogs but certainly before blogs became the place that everybody Trying to put their communities. How did you find Many like minded in in school folks at school they are or were you able to against still pretty. I guess earliest days kind of reach out to other where their user communities than that you all could kind of bounce ideas off each other as well. you know. So that's what we provided primarily and so job lobby had been started by my partner as we scanned it. But in those days you know. The the developing world is much more fragmented job lobby really provided a place for developers have an independent voice in an independent community that was separate from the vendors who were really controlling the messaging Peru tools and development. The is in those days Which is is somewhat different than than what you get. These days and open source was what it was. You know what it is now. It was a big deal if he were open source back so everything is sorta come much further much more quickly than it was in those days.
How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Environment

You know they've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually temporary measures. Right and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste kind of comeback at some point if you have a question for NPR's Lawrence Somerset to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or on twitter use the HASHTAG NPR conversation and our next listener question comes from Laura Intel Keaton Alaska. What effect is this virus having on? Wildlife? I'm thinking of the fact that there's less people out and about and that means there's more room for wildlife I've seen some photos of a Lotta ducks resting in a parking lot while bores and sheep walking down the street. There's a lot of this on social media. Is it just that were home more? So we see the animals more or the animals actually coming out in places that they didn't ordinarily yeah. I mean that's hard to tell right. A lot of us are kind of just looking out the window. Maybe seeing things we didn't see before but some of it is a hoax. Right on social media you know. Maybe you saw those dolphins that were. They weren't actually there. Yeah I'm sorry about that but this they're actually real effects. Scientists are trying to study. You know I spoke to one wildlife rescue center in California. That said you know right now. It's seal and sea lion pumping season. You know every year some pups are concerned because of human interference like people or maybe dogs getting too close and so they're kind of that this year they merely a reprieve for them because some beaches are closed Another really good example is Wales. There's just less shipping traffic right now. And so. The oceans are less and wheels are very sensitive to sound. It's actually Something scientists after nine eleven because there was also a drop in shipping traffic and scientists could actually measure that stress hormones in right. Whales went down during that time period. Interesting we got a question about what's happening to environmental regulations during the pandemic Mike in Portland writes to the EPA suspended environmental rules so companies. Don't have to follow them any longer. Lauren Bizarre Policy Change while everyone was focused on the disease. Yeah in in March the EPA announced that it would not be finding companies if they failed to report their pollution data during the pandemic so an example of this might be that a refinery is reporting. It's air emissions to make sure that they're complying with Federal Clean Air Laws. The agency said that this needed to happen. Because the pandemic is making it harder for staff to collect the safety data and and do social distancing at the same time environmental groups really push back quite strongly. They felt this was too broad. It sent a message to industries. That maybe they would have the freedom to break environmental laws if no one was really checking during this time period just on our final moments so many of the changes were talking about depend on social distancing when the economy returns to something like normal are the gains. We've seen going to be reversed right so we all are starting to get back in our cars and fly. Go back to work industries ramping. Up You expect these of short-term Games are going to go away. I think there's some hope that the behavioral change though like maybe we'll all work from home it's possible. Npr Science correspondent Lawrence Summer. Thanks for answering these questions tonight.

"Welcome to episode two hundred eight of DOTS lines and destinations. I'm Steven Seagraves. Joined by Seth Miller doing. I'm doing all right Tired today yet. It's groundhog day here. How you doing again like I said earlier. Yeah it's actually also a little weird for me. Because I think this is my second podcast and third audiovisual recording today. But all nice and there's some topics but I'm GonNa try to say unique an interesting things. This what's What other shows should we listen for your good question? I'm on Ashok this week. Okay which that Flaring or twenty four guys and Inmarsat which is one big flat inactivity and satellite operator companies is doing a online sort of Sort of an all day seminar next Wednesday the twenty ninth talking about all things passenger experience in flight connectivity. But also the news and other developments seating and I'll just all sorts of really interesting stuff sort of replacing Aircraft Interiors not replacing trying to get some similar content produced and we all miss starbucks show in Hamburg the beginning of the month so did a test run of what that video is. GonNa look like so. We can be ready to have something to go for next Wednesday. So it's A. It's been a sick day for me. Post the links in the show notes. Sure I should probably member do that idea. I'll send you a note to remind you assistant producer this week. I like to talk about. I think some of the one of the big ones the Kinda hit the news today on. We're recording this on on Tuesday. The twenty-first April Air Canada is temporarily suspending all transporter flights with the US They had previously cut back to just eleven route from twenty six or so or alone destinations from twenty six But I gotta be. I'm a little surprised they were running still running that many. This goes back to like. Why is North America's still flying planes when no one else is in a lot of ways but that's an interesting point right like why? Why are there so many flights United States? Something I've noticed is like there's a huge number of southwest flights compared to the rest of the carriers. Yes actually just chatting with someone about that literate before we started southwest today ran about thirty five percent of. It's normal schedule where everybody else's Attended twenty and up until now had been running close to fifty and on the one hand. You could say you know. Gosh that some gumption. They've got the spirit Bad Pun. Sorry they're gonNA keep moving no matter what serve customers that need to go Also I think it's stupid also like you know. Post nine eleven. They kept flying their full schedule because they wanted to be there. And yet for the quick bounce back but this is not going to be a quick bounce back and I just don't understand it. Yeah yes I mean your question about Air Canada similar I think they were flying these destinations y. Yeah I mean the borders closed to non-essential travel right. I mean it's not even like we really don't think you should. You gotta go to like a immigration officer and be like no no. This is actually important. Sorry you have to let me in record. We were told if we needed to go to Canada. We need paper on a good day fighting with the Canadian Border Patrol for other people. I've never had promised but I've heard great stories from you and others about the troubles. That can come. Yeah I just I don't get I don't get why anyone WANNA fight with border patrol officers at any level but like pushing your luck on that and so there can't have been that many people like where they are Canadians for the last three weeks. That have been like. Oh I'll just go back on the next flight now. I still got some work to do here. I it just doesn't make sense to me. Yeah Yeah and I don't. I don't think it was close to. Us citizens right so they it. It was like soft close and then became non essential travel closed. Okay so it's sufficiently closed and they just announced yesterday or the day before another day before. Xhosa Sunday but in recent days they just extending that Non Essential non essentials closure for another month. Which is why the flights are finding suspended. Gotcha okay so there's a reason for it but it's It's still weird so it leaves leaves American Delta United Really. The only one's flying to handed I. I'm not sure if WESTJET REPORTER ARE FLYING TRANSLATOR. They started them not. Yeah so and for what? It's worth Canada's now. Also requiring facemask masks of any sort just tired to shoot around your face if you forget one But anything across your face if you're getting on an airplane so interesting but yeah I mean along those. Those there was some there was a united call today right like a town hall or something that they have as their sort of like internal Staff briefing and I mean it's they're running what ten percent load factors right now on ten percent of the schedule. Really Amazing. Yeah so one tenth of what does that. Come out to like one tenth. Not Normal load. Yeah Yeah One. One percent one percent. Which is I mean. It's not I mean it's it's Kinda hard to believe. Yeah and it's and they're not alone. I mean if you look at the numbers that Tsa PUBLISHES EVERY DAY. Like traffic is down ninety. Four percent or whatever. Ninety six percent. They're suggesting that it's a huge. You know that it's there's just skeleton passengers if you look at the numbers it's worse than you think because the scans Con Bembibre concessions stand and other people working at the airport to actually I think those are automated counters of like bodies walking through machines. Not some guy checking things so you know. It's it's a lot of a lot of problems. It's no passenger so like they're really. I actually got a a message from a flight attendant friend. Working Three Twenty noted that forty five passengers on board Amazon in my seat. Because that's like double the load of normal. Yeah I saw a couple of flights. I kinda monitor united flights every now and then. I saw a few flights the other day Denver to Houston was relatively full. Ask hub to hub kind of makes sense but on a mid mid week so strange it there are some you know arguably. I'll say that's good news because the cuts are working. The capacity cuts are coming down. And so you know if you can see us. Thirty to fifty percent full flight today. That represents what would have been three weeks ago ten her five flights that we've all been five to ten percent full and so it's it's better and I don't think we want to some level you wanNA say Gosh. You need the central plains. There can't be anybody on board but that's also stupid and there are reasons. Some people need to travel by air at demean whether it's country to get around and unlike Europe for example like the border between states are vaguely still open in most cases. Yeah or or Florida or Texas I. There's some even actually stuff out though. Yeah that was. That was funny. That I think New Hampshire even has like a sort of please quarantine yourself if you get here policy got so but you know it's. I'm glad that the flights are being cut. I still think that more should be. And we'll see I mean you know but this goes back to why South West someone asks me. Do they have some sort of special deal where they are able to fly them cheaper than everybody else? I don't think that's the case. I just think you know I'll never get an answer session. Sense up into court common. Ask but like high. Why are you doing the stupid thing that no one else is doing? Rarely gets a response that I'm looking for my brother. Yesterday had to fly to Raleigh kind of like last minute from Houston and on a southwest. Flight there's a nonstop at of Hobby to Terrell was on that flight and he was him and another guy. Yeah so right I mean like you had to go so and to be fair in a lot of ways the. Us government is paying for these flights to operate by. That's the argument you can make. As they've they're covering payroll costs are seventy percent of payroll costs of which thirty percent is alone in ten percent comes back in. Warren's so fifty percent of payroll costs which maybe is in the end. Fuzzy math is fifteen to twenty percent of the full cost of Ryan the flight but the federal government is subsidized now pressures flights to make sure that people can get around because the US government recognizes that that has to happen and doesn't want to deal with another million people on employment and with no health. Insurance I think the I mean speaking speaking of like non-full planes. You actually posted a story about a new seating options and it's the in Anyang seating option. Yeah it's bizarre it's obvio- interiors is the name of the company and there. They are normal seating provider there Celsius two airlines like they're not sort of supermassive or bigger. They're not the biggest by any stretch. They're like Certainly top five and they're known for doing some creative things from time to time. And they've designed the product that is the middle seat for a single-aisle planes three three but the middle seat faces backwards. And they're sort of like a wavy divider between everybody so everybody has their own armrest got walled. Lean against instead of your neighbor. Obviously in the same space you'd have some issues of the cushion getting a little narrower which some people complain about There's concerns about like staring at your neighbor. Which is also an issue with everything else. Like that. Sort of from facing thing right. No one likes the vehicle for that same problem except in this case you can't lie down and put up divide or you're just staring at them you know. Some people are inclined and from what they wrote on the press release. It sounds like it's an articulated recline so like the Pan sides forward rather than the seat going back. He lose knee room during their Klein. Which people wouldn't like it? There's a lot of problems with it but it does sort of solve some solution Some provide some solutions. That was terrible senator There's a lot of problems with it but it also offers solutions. Yeah good editor. I would just fix that. And so you know it's interesting to me. I think it's a good conversation point but I don't think it'll overfly so I don't know

"This weekend of Raleigh's retirement coach I told you a little bit earlier in the show that I was going to give you some positive news about that the U. S. fight the the coronavirus urine I know everybody knows less than a month ago the markets were at a record high is healthy data on the U. S. economy single continued growth on the horizon then the corona virus made its way here through Europe and then into the United States R. as everybody knows our markets have kind of gone into a tailspin suffering you know one of the fastest decline on record the last several weeks have been characterized by extreme volatility as investors try to make heads or tails out of what's going on with the situation in a market coverage about the virus has been almost nonstop almost exclusively negative and as is all the experts out there are extrapolating all the worst case scenarios I want to share with our listeners I there are some positives to come out about this and I really think you know we we always tell our select families it most of the time on the news is going to be bad news in the times like these Hey you might want to you know turn off the TV so I know we gotta be socially responsible and kind of know what's going on and what's close and what we should be doing or what we should be doing to keep the spread from the corona virus from from spreading through you know the U. S. like it did for instance through Italy but at times like this what I'd like to look at do you no doubt of that you know where there might be some positive developments that really are getting as much media coverage and I and I always talk about that and it's really really tough to not get stuck on a narrative a right now and and just kind of take a look at at some of the data the initial as as most people know the initial government response to the corona virus was extremely disappointing the first round of tests get sent out by the CDC were faulty they required a recall cost and precious time in the fight to kind of find the people in quarantine those people that were in fact it further slowing action only the CDC was allowed to do test at its own facilities limiting testing capacity now hello things are beginning to change and many private lives have now been approved to conduct tests and you probably heard about one of the NBA teams the you know the next that went in and had all their players tested four of them tested positive not only one of them had mild symptoms of the corona virus the other three were just kind of going about life in and didn't even really realize they had a virus but because our MBA and you know the it shut down all the major sports these past couple of weeks a hint you know it's because Rudy go bare from the Utah Jazz was discovered to have tested positive coronavirus and we've we've seen it here at our very own John force Lynn from the Carolina hurricanes state apparently at the same hotel that he came home from that and he was quarantine but the whole reason why I'm talking about that is that many private labs now have been approved to conduct tests the FDA is announced that not only will it have high volume testing to be allowed in that emergency approval has been given for an automated corona virus test that is estimated to speed up the process tenfold so not only are test becoming more available results will come quicker as well and they're going to be able to identify and contain it in you know all of this stuff is going to be rolled out shortly it's getting ready to be rolled out at the national level and you know my thoughts on that is Hey you know this is some good news we're not we're not hearing about this we're hearing about all the failures and things that that have it went well I want to talk about the waiver coverage that'll be on the horizon as well because the number of official faction is in the United States as everybody knows you can follow it everywhere is continue to rise an accelerated pace especially over the last couple of weeks meanwhile our preferred measure of active cases it actor cases means total cases might is destined recovers which kind of gives us a better picture of the number of people who are able to spread the virus further has continued to rise consistently as well so as so often occurs during virus outbreaks fears arise that early pieces spread will continue unabated at an exponential rate history including the experience of both China and South Korea with the coronavirus shows identification and treatment leads to a slowdown in the pace of new cases and a pickup in recovers everybody's talking about flattening the curve here in the U. S. I know it really seems like these measures are extreme public schools being closed at the college is being closed now you've got the bars the hotels the fitness centers and most of the people here in the triangle if you can't put possibly work from home working remotely they're now doing that and I think we're gonna see able to slow down the pace and all of this stuff is going on in terms of the spread it picked it typically takes roughly two weeks for otherwise healthy individuals who test positive to get better and then to be officially removed from the quote active status to the recovered counts now to worry about you know two two and a half weeks out from the initial surge in the U. S. cases a recoveries should begin to rise consistently the world recovery rate currently sits at about ninety three percent right now while in the US it's only a forty three percent so we're really expecting the US to move toward and that exceed the world recovery date here in the weeks ahead and I I think that's positive news again I know some of these extreme measures in terms it just feels like lockdown and people here in the triangle are getting antsy in terms of hate were pretty much just restricted to our house and spent a lot of time with each other I had the red hat on earlier in the show talking about how you know we're going on walks on you know when we easily do stuff like that it just seems to be doing it more on a weekend basis and stuff like that but you know what are the other positives you know that I haven't had a chance to mention is that the private US health care industry is the best in the world and and one of the I think the biggest things is being overlooked in this and under appreciated in the fallout from the corona viruses just how fast the private U. S. healthcare industry has responded moderna has already began testing a vaccine and many other companies to follow suit with their own treatments we've got you went see right here to triangle that's been really on the forefront in terms of trying to find the treatment and a vaccine meanwhile doctors have begun using the experimental antiviral drug called red to server R. E. N. D. E. S. I. V. I. R. don't know if I said that right folks so five five butchered that please excuse me but they're they're treating U. S. coronavirus patients and we're getting positive results the speed with which these discoveries have been happened has been absolutely breathtaking and just just imagine how long it would have taken to develop effective treatments for a never before seen illness fifty years ago heck even twenty five years ago something comes in never before seen never dealt with and now word we're dealing with this almost in real time and end within weeks we have cut you know vaccines we've got testing kids out it I know we're not seeing these types of things talk about I know if you're tuned into the news Sir you're on your iPhone or your on your computer people are costly going how many new people here in North Carolina have got affected how many people here in wake county have been impacted in we've seen those numbers climb and look I I don't think we're you know at the bottom or the top in terms of seeing the worst of it I want to tell people I think Hey your numbers are probably going to continue to grow we know where we are kind of in that cycle but our really believe in my heart of hearts that we're going to get this thing left we're going to get this thing figured out we're going to make sure that we're maybe we're being a little bit extreme I don't think we are in terms of how we're responding but we want to keep this thing from spreading we want less people get infected in quarantine and do you know that that is everybody's talking about having it flattened out and you know I want to talk about up twenty thirteen study by the department of health and Human Services that determine the U. S. had the most intensive care unit beds per capita of any country at twenty to thirty two per hundred thousand people this is by far higher than China we're only two point eight to four point six you know beds were available demonstrating why they needed to build hospitals overnight likewise the U. S. far out does countries with socialized medical systems like Canada where they're at thirteen point five again were between twenty and thirty two per hundred thousand in terms of having intensive care unit beds per capita suite at five point eight the U. K. three point five to seven this means the U. S. is way better suited to deal with the health care capacity issues that could arise with a pandemic than virtually any other country in the world I know we're not talking about the six because I don't hear about any of these things but I want to share this with with our listeners because I I know we're getting tons of bad news but you know when we put all of this stuff together I really believe the U. S. is well poised to not only win its own fight against a corona virus but also to export treatments that should help the rest of the world and I know people are worried here at home and you know even closer to home here in a triangle and we're we're we're gonna get this thing figured out I just eat people already know this if you listen to the show you know this the coming weeks are going to be critical as Tesco out in mass and we learn more about the fight we're up against but we're up to the task ito I was like to say I believe you the United States America's the greatest country in the world I wouldn't want to live anywhere is out if anybody if any country can figure this thing out its US history showed we work the problem US goes to work our kids go to work we're going to work the problem we're going to figure this thing out and looked it panic is is never permanent and in the virus response you know is probably going to.

Okay Good Missoula city of they call it the Garden City. And I'm like that's that's just New Jersey but is it New Jersey. They call it the garden. I know I've been there on all of the turnpike signs that it's the garden state and then you look and you're like that looks like a refinery but okay garden than I'm used to but we're not here to criticize New Jersey. Yeah alienate any people here. Who ARE FROM NEW JERSEY. Half Your Guys. You've got everywhere. Wow all right. What's answer some questions from our listeners? Or in this case our viewers and listeners. Because all these questions came from you and the way that we're going to identify you as your ambulance song. Some people may be new to the PODCAST and they don't know what that's a reference to. I had a million dollar idea or maybe someone else added an ice stolen. It's hard for me to remember. Sometimes and the million dollar idea was that instead of having that annoying like really piercing siren when you're in an ambulance which is a terrible thing to hear when you're sick or or in crisis you should have an ambulance song that you prefrontal and then if you ever find yourself in an ambulance they play your song. The whole way. There they loud is really loud and so people know to get out of the way but also you get to listen to a song. That's better than than the actual ambulance siren. There are some problems with this million dollar idea. We don't need to get into all of them. Want to people have pointed out to me but it's a fun thing to dream about it is. This would be part of my if I ever wrote a dystopia novel. Believe you me. Everybody would have an ambulance and it would cost so much like everything in the healthcare system. John Let's answer this question for Abby and Ryan whose ambulance song is shake it off by Taylor Swift. GotTa have some good vibes going. In that situation they write. Hello this is abby and Ryan. Art Question is have either of you ever come across an odd topic or strange fact while doing research for one of your books and if yes what did you discover and was it ever added to the book I so I had seen in my book that takes place several scenes that take place inside of an airplane where there's no one in it and the and things have to happen in the airplane so I called a man and his twitter was like airplane Guy. I basically hank finds his experts. See I tweeted. I was like I need someone who's like an airplane guy and then some of the airplane. Guy Responded. Hey Hey yeah no totally. An airplane guy. Like airplane thing happens. He's on the Cable News. Call him up and he. He's like a professional airplane guy and so I got on the phone with them. He was super gregarious and like open to helping me out. However I wanted and I was like I need to know how you might get into a plane not through the door and he was like let me tell you a story and I was like Yay Nita Story. So he wants wants an airplane. The door got stuck and I don't think there was anybody on the plane at the time. Yeah and so. You need to come out needed to get into the airplane. But the door won't open and so he told me how you get into an. Which is you crawl in through the nose landing gear and you crawl up there. And then there's like a thing where you unscrew all the bolts and then you can get into the airplane. If you're ever walking around like a seven thirty seven you can see the bolts in the floor in the front galley that he can crawl down into the landing gear from. I can't remember the words landing here right now. I also frequently do this where I learned something and then put it into a book in fact my novel. An abundance of Catherine's is essentially just a series of things that I learned stitch together into into novel form but But but recently. With my guys. The antecedent reviewed. Sometimes I'll discover a fact that I like so much that I'll be like I think I've got twelve hundred words so that I can justify telling people that the most recent example of which is that. I reviewed Pineapple on pizza for the interviewed because I discovered that in the nineteen sixties. Pineapple on pizza was invented in Canada by Greek immigrant. Who was working at a Chinese restaurant and who is inspired by Chinese cuisine to put a South American food on a traditionally Italian dish which went on to become most popular not in Hawaii but in Australia where astonishingly nationwide. The pineapple is the number one topping on pizza pineapple. I'm not convinced by your applause. It seemed it seemed. It seemed not to be one hundred percent of the people. Yeah it's a very divisive topic. I was like man given that fact. I've got to find twelve hundred other words to say about up on because I wanted. Tell that to people. It's good man. I want pizza now. Canadian Bacon what is Canadian is a Canadian. Of course it's not. Of course he knows that yes. Bacon has no nationality. Very true belongs to the pig pig bacon. Thank you take that away from them actually. Just leave it on would probably be their preference. All right. I told you is GONNA be a lot of emotional whiplash all right. Hey what's our next question? They come from David who's ambulance. Song is I don't know what that is You know it's like a chant Gregorian chant. Okay I mean. It's it's about her dance song. It's not a bob as an education an education major in his final semester of university. I'm prepared to teach English in high school and I'm slightly afraid of not being the teacher that will inspire my students. What teachers inspired you? The most in your education over the years. And what did they do to help you see their subject as tangible worth engaging with outside of just the requirements not a giant killer nor a sling slingers simply David but David was just simply David until they were like. Hey there's a goliath you need to fight so you never know and you are going into the education system so you will have your share. I first thing I want to say about. This is like you don't have to be that thing for every student. That is not how it works. It's not like we all come out of the education system and we all picked like everybody who had Mrs Grant Thinks Mrs Grant was the one. I think that we all find our teachers back. No matter how inspirational my Algebra teacher was that just wasn't going to be the person for you know for. I actually have a lot of friends. Who would site are Algebra teacher as like the most inspiring most one teacher? He was a great teacher. It's just you happen to be teaching Algebra two to which I am not inclined for me the people who made the biggest difference so when I was in school I often felt like I was being asked to jump over a series of arbitrary hurdles for no reason like they do in hurdle races. You know like whenever I watch hurdle race. I always think to myself if they just removed the hurdles. This would go so much faster. And that's how I felt in school. I was like now. They're gonNA make me jump over the Algebra to her and now I have to jump over the American History Hurdle. Why because the hurdles have been placed here by forces so much larger than me that I cannot begin to imagine them and it also felt like quite arbitrary and it felt like the main thing I was trying to do is to get a piece of paper that said that I had learned enough to be a grown up and the teachers who mattered to me where the teachers who were so passionate about what they were doing. They were so passionate about their work about their subject. Matter that somehow that passion became infectious and I began to see it not as a series of hurdles but instead as an opportunity an opportunity to understand my place in the universe and understand the universe an opportunity to understand how in different periods of history people have communicated themselves the ideas that matter to them the questions that mattered to them and and how to have conversations through space and time with the magic of reading and things like that. That was the stuff that really got me so I think for me. It comes down to passion and finding a way to hold onto that passion. Even when you're around students who if they're anything like me are super difficult and can be kind of annoying. Yeah and I think that like being open to that kind of passion in front of a bunch of maybe somewhat intentionally detached. In order to protect themselves students can be difficult because like they. They are in a world to some extent where they have to protect their identities. Because like it's not easy and high school or Middle School to be a person and so I think a lot of the sort of aloofness that comes with high school was a protection. Oh yeah like breaking through that. It feels definitely feels like if you show the world. You're you're vulnerable bell. It will devour you because I felt that way throughout middle school and then through most of high school by the way if you're in middle school or high school right now and it's and it's great that's I'm so happy for you and if it's not great it's it's okay and I am. Sorry that sucks but I promise it will get better. High school was temporary. You will not always feel the way that you feel in high school. I feel like the biggest achievement in my life and a lot of ways was making it to adulthood. I'm extremely extremely proud of that. In all I ever want to talk about when I see old friends is. Oh my God. Can you believe that we're here? This next question comes from Meredith. Who would like to hear highway to hell by? Acdc while they're on the way to the hospital meredith is working Darinka. John Says Meredith. I'm working at NASA THIS SEMESTER. As an intern awesome.

There is concerned that oil companies could start to default on debt payments and. It's actually not just oil. That people are worrying about. Economists are warning that defaults both corporate and personal now pose a danger to the economy. Robin Farzad is host of public. Radio's full disclosure. Robinson have you hello and companies are still reeling from this price drop yesterday. Marathon Oil said today. It's cutting spending by thirty percent. Bigger companies like Chevron announcing cuts to as Russia in Saudi Arabia seemed to be doubling down on this decision to increase their output which is a big reason why prices fell sharply yesterday. Remind US why the Russians and the Saudis are doing this again. Aren't they also hurting? From the corona virus demand yeah the Saudis who have the planet's lowest cost of extracting a barrel? I think it's about three dollars a barrel from the ground. They perceive this as the time to go in for the kill and steal market share. Not just from the Russians but back from the US oil patch and you know what hurting Iran even more in the process right now. It's kind of icing on the cake for Riyadh and this is bad as you say for. Us oil producers who even before the Corona virus were already pretty deeply in debt and that may be surprising to people who haven't been tracking this industry closely over the years. Give us some context. Yeah I mean since oil broke one hundred forty dollars a barrel in two thousand eight. It seems like ancient history now the US. I think by two thousand eighteen it road shale production to become an export for the first time I think in seventy five years but in that boom and with debt so cheap you had this surge of borrowing to build out and just keep the liquid flowing so what you have now is collapsing prices amid one too much oil to that. There's a worry that there's not enough coming in. Pay The interest on all that debt and so already Peter. Between two thousand fifteen and two thousand nineteen we saw about one hundred seventy five oil and gas companies in North America with debts of about one hundred billion seeking bankruptcy protection. So there's a fear that there's another leg down in what would happen if it does get worse. The big question I think right now it does get worse as what's the cry Uncle Mark for the price of oil for these upstarts in the Shell Oil Patch. I mean you talked about thirty thousand. Twenty five twenty lower and then what are the pain points that are gonna make default more likely and then you start asking the secondary and tertiary questions which regional or national banks have too much exposure to that right banks and we should be clear that it's not just oil? In fact. Experts are now worried that we are on the verge or could be on the verge of a corporate debt crisis. Explain what that is. This economy is broadly over leveraged. It's been about eleven year expansion. I saw Bloomberg statistic that calculates about one point three trillion of high yield bonds outstanding. They're also called junk bonds. That's up from seven hundred eighty six billion a decade ago quality credits like investment grade credit market is more than doubled to six trillion dollars over the same period. The words you're using you can't help but draw parallels to the financial crisis of two thousand and eight. We don't have a lot of time but I mean where does this potential problem lie in relation to that problem well interest rates are even lower now than they were in the teeth of the financial crisis and they well could go to zero or negative. So that's a very valuable buffer. But we don't yet know Peter. I mean no two successive financial crises have been Exactly the same and so we're going to see. Some of the bodies are buried where some terrible risks were taken as this as this pain continues in the markets. Greta Danoiel. Yeah..

C. in Raleigh North Carolina capitol bureau chief Jeff to bury Jeff good morning hello there all right welcome everyone to WNYC thanks so much for joining us okay Jeff let's start with you yesterday and P. R. ran a story on the controversial endorsement of Bloomberg by the mayor in Charlotte how does the rest of North Carolina CM I think that one way to look at Bloomberg here in North Carolina is to acknowledge that he has perhaps the most varied and diverse set of endorsements of any of the leading presidential candidates Bloomberg has the back here yes of the Charlotte mayor also the Raleigh mayor in addition the leaders of the democratic party's democratic caucuses at the state house and state Senate now those are the minority parties of the state legislature but both of the leaders of those respective parties in caucuses have supported Bloomberg and you know it's it's very much a fractured field here recent polling indicates to us that Bloomberg senator Sanders former vice president Biden are are really running in a dead heat at this point and the three of them we expect to gobble up most if not all of the one hundred and ten delegates that are available here in North Carolina on super Tuesday has Bloomberg been spending a lot of money there and advertising he's been spending a lot of money here on on on advertising millions upon millions a very astute political observers said to me about a month ago he didn't know any better you might I think that the a democratic presidential primary here in North Carolina was between Michael Bloomberg and stop time style of the two billion years because they're the ones that have been up and running so many advertisements both on television and digital ads for for really several weeks now all right let's turn to Arkansas as with many other states Bloomberg has been spending quite a lot of advertising they're just like in a North Carolina but Michael you say he's also been creating a lot of jobs with his campaign what are people they're saying well people are I think the fact that he has spent more time here than any other presidential candidate is really boding well for him he has he came here on the day when voter registration when that candidates could file he came back last month and let little rock's Martin Luther king junior parade and a poll recently showed him in the lead among the democratic presidential candidates although it was within the margin affair but I think people have been receptive to the fact that he has spent more time here than anyone else now we can go to Tennessee that's where Bloomberg unveiled his healthcare plan back in December which is more moderate than Medicare for all so Sergio how are the voters you're talking with your feeling about Bloomberg I think that's the key word moderates you know let's keep in mind Tennessee is a conservative state president trump is pretty much as popular as he was in twenty sixteen and so a lot of the democratic voters that I've talked to they say that because Bloomberg is presenting himself as a moderate especially with health care do you believe that some Republicans might even switch and decide to vote for for.

"James and his general ill wishing of the monarch. So even though his definitely real imagining of the death of the king was basically just a bunch of idle griping among his friends. It's still counted as treason under the law on December nine, six, three, Walter Raleigh, and the other condemned men were taken out to the scaffold one at a time to be executed. But each one was given a last minute stay and sentenced to imprisonment instead. Raleigh was sentenced to life in the tower of London. He spent the next thirteen years in prison in the tower. But honestly, this was a pretty luxurious incarceration. He had a large apartment suite with live in servants and a laboratory in the library and daily visits from his wife and their son. Walter who had been born in fifteen ninety three. They had a second son in sixteen o five while rally was still incarcerated and the rest of the family moved into a home on tower hill to be closer to the incarcerated welter and make it easier for all these daily visits to happen. Rally spent a lot of this time writing while in the tower. He wrote a morality book for boys called instructions to his son, and he also wrote the history of the world which started with creation and went to the second Macedonian war. In one Forty-six BC he dedicated it to James's son Henry who he also tutored while imprisoned Henry advocated for rallies release, but died in sixteen twelve before he had. Cured it. This, this history of the world was five volumes. Something like a million words long and was clearly meant to be the first in a series that was going to then go on to cover the rest of the history of the world after one forty, six. Finally, M16. sixteen rally convinced King James to let him out of prison. James needed money and Raleigh made it sound like he could locate riches in South America based on his previous voyage along the river. He was given leave to do this on one condition that he not attacks pain in any way. The Anglo Spanish war was finally over and James did not want to do anything to start it up. Again, plus Spain hidden insisted that if rally did cause any trouble to its subjects that he would be sent to Madrid for trial rally was released from the tower on March nineteenth of sixteen sixteen at the age of about sixty two. But this voyage went terribly Raleigh was on board as a civilian and his friend Lawrence kiemes who you'll also see spilled kimes with. No, I in it was the one in charge. I like how just not leaving the eye and there is a running theme in names. Kiemes attacked the Spanish. Colonial town of Santo may killing its governor, which was literally the thing they were not supposed to do. The younger Walter Raleigh was also with them on this expedition, and he was killed in the battle. Also they didn't find the gold mine that hit inspired them to go on this expedition in the first place, rally, berated KEMA. So incessantly about the death of his son and the failure to find a mine that he took his own life. Raleigh wrote a massive apology for this whole incident on the way home at once he got there, he tried to use his illness to by himself some more time, but Spain demanded retribution for what had happened on this footage and ultimately raleigh's death sentence from the main plot. Back in sixteen o three was reinstated. He was taken to the scaffold outside the palace of Westminster on October twenty ninth sixteen eighteen. He gave a speech before being executed, which was typical, but he didn't admit any guilt or ask. Ask for the king's forgiveness, which was not typical. Instead, according to newsletter writer, John Pori, the speech began quote, I give God, thanks. I am come to die in the light and not in the darkness. And then he went on to justify what he had done and forgive his accusers, but also to deny his own guilt for a total of about forty, five minutes. It went on to be a very dramatic and theatrical execution. Raleigh refuse to warm himself by the fire that was there specifically for that purpose reportedly he also asked to see the executioners acts and then after looking at it, he said, this is a sharp medicine, but it is a physician for all diseases and miseries. He comforted the executioner before placing his head on the stand. And then when the executioner didn't immediately begin the whole beheading process. Rally said something along the lines of strike man's strike and it took two blows to decapitate him. A bystander reportedly said, quote, we have not. Another head to be cut off. Again, in the words of John Pori quote, every man that saucer Walter Raleigh die said it was impossible for any man to show more decorum courage or piety, and that his death will do more hurt to the faction that sought it than ever his life could have done. Riley, body minus the head was buried at the church of St. Margaret's. Westminster, his head was placed in a red leather bag and given to his widow bests who reportedly kept it for the rest of her life, which was twenty nine more years. Often, this head is described as having been in bombed, and there are reports that she might have kept it in a glass case and not in a bag. There's like, this is one of those stories where I kinda go for real. The seems a little fishy to me and maybe apocryphal, but their son carroo took possession of this head reportedly after his mother's death and then had it buried with him when he died in sixteen sixty six at least that is. One possibility for the location of sir Walter rallies head Saint Mary's in west Horsely has also said it is the resting place of sir Walter rallies head because Kerry had it buried there when his own sons died during a plague. So it is unclear, but there are multiple sources that say, his head Sayed separate from his buddy and got carried around for a couple or three decades. I'm, I'm a little lost in thought over what one would do with a head of your beloved. Like do you look at it? You just leave it in the bag and pretend it's not there, but no, it's they're like, I know there's a lot of debts. There's a lot of debunking about various things about sir Walter rallies life. But this head I did not find any debunking. Today, sir. Walter Raleigh is one of the ghosts purportedly haunting the tower of London. He also reportedly haunts Beddington in south London where he owned land in where his wife had requested to be buried after the execution. There were also rumors that he was actually buried there in secret during his life rally had not been particularly beloved by the public at large, but his execution as indicated by some of the quotes we read earlier really earned him a lot of sympathy so much sympathy that the crown commissioned its own right up of execution, which made him sound arrogant and combative

"In February of fifty. Nine ninety five Walter Raleigh. Got the queen's permission to go on an expedition on the orange ochre river. And what's now Venezuela, which at the time was known as Jonah. He was searching for the fabled city of El Dorado and Robert Devereux. Earl of Essex went on this expedition as well. This is one of times that they were getting along. They did not find a city of gold though, but Raleigh did write a book called the discovery of Ghana, which came out in fifteen ninety six. This book was extremely popular than it was reprinted. Four times that year. The also seems to have brought an indigenous boy of about ten or twelve back with him who he adopted. The Anglo Spanish war was still ongoing and Raleigh, and Essex were both part of a raid on the Spanish port of Cadiz in fifteen ninety six which destroyed more than thirty Spanish ships. Rally was seriously wounded in the thought by which never fully healed. But this was a victory for England and a somewhat lucrative one. So he did start to win back some of the queen's affections. She eventually allowed him back to court and restored him to his position as the captain of the queen's guard with things starting to turn around after this Orinoco expedition and the raid on kitties soon, Elizabeth's was starting to bestow more favors on Wall Street rally again, including making him the governor of the isle of jersey in sixteen hundred. And she granted him an monopoly on playing cards as well. I'm telling you with the fabric in the wind and the playing cards. He really had the entertainment market cornered. Then in sixteen o one, the Earl of Essex rebelled against the Queen and Raleigh helped put down that rebellion, Essex was executed for treason. The Queen was devastated. But this meant that raleigh's chief rival at court was dead rally was widely reported as gloating over Essex as execution. In reality, he seems to have been a little more conflicted over it. The two men have really been close earlier on in their lives in Raleigh, didn't attend the execution, even though he was expected to as captain of the queen's guard. But rallies returns who relative favor at court was pretty short lived because Queen Elizabeth died in sixteen three. James, the I of England and six of Scotland became king and James didn't particularly like Raleigh. Raleigh also had a lot of enemies at court. Some of whom had convinced the king that Raleigh was ready to back rival claimant to the throne. This rumor was not particularly realistic. It involved a Spanish claimant to this Roane and rally had spent much of his military career fighting against Spain. He was also against the idea of England ending the ongoing Anglo Spanish war, and he even wrote a treatise about it. So the idea that he would support a Spanish monarch while also advocating continue. Doing the war with Spain, just doesn't make much sense. But soon rally had way bigger problems than these rumors in November of sixteen three. He was charged with treason and plot overthrew King James. This plot was known as the main plot m. a. i. n. it got its name because of its relationship to a lesser weirder plot, known as the bye plot. And that's by leg BYU e by. It cracks me up that the names that they settled on for these two plots are solely about their relationship to one another, and neither of them is about what the plot was actually meant involved. Yeah, the bye plot was discovered. I and it was a conspiracy among Catholic priests and lay people to kidnap the king in the spring of sixteen o three. Their goal was to force him to grant religious tolerance to Catholics and Puritans into place Catholics in office on July eighteenth, sixteen three, George, Brooke was giving testimony about this plot and as he was doing so he revealed that his brother Henry, Brooke Lord Kaban was involved in a whole different plot which was to kidnap the king murder him and replace him with lady Arbella Stuart. There were no real connections between the main plot and the biplane except for the fact that George and Henry Brooke were brothers and each of them was involved in one of these plots and that the authorities found out about the main plot while investigating the bye plot because of the connection between the brothers, Brooke, this is one of those things that if you wrote it in a forest, people would be like too far. The whole thing is so weird and convoluted during months of interogations Kaba made and retracted a whole huge string of changing confessions and accusations against rally. The most consistent and possibly believable charge was that Raleigh sought out a pension from Spain in exchange for providing information about British activities in the low countries or the Indies after Queen Elizabeth died Raleigh head once again, lost most of his estates and monopolies and other favors he needed money and it's possible that he needed it badly enough to be willing to exchange information for it either. Even to the Spanish rally was arrested based on condoms, accusations. I mean, even though they kept changing and he kept recanting them and then having a completely different story, the fact that he was implicating himself while making these accusations made people believe it more so rally was arrested. He was imprisoned in the tower on July twentieth of sixty three about a week later. He tried to stab himself with a table knife, but he struck a rib and didn't do a lot of lasting damage when Raleigh and the rest of the co conspirators were put on trial. He spoke in his own defense including answering some questions about his actions back in the siege of Smer wick in fifteen eighty. His response to these questions about whether he had acted appropriately was basically that he was following his commander's orders on November seventeenth rally in the co, conspirators in the main plot were found guilty and sentenced to death about two weeks later coven once again, retracted a lot of the accusations that he had made against Raleigh. So it's not. Really clear whether rally had any involvement at all in the main plot. Even this whole question about whether he was trying to get a pension from Spain. But regardless of that question, he was definitely guilty of treason under the terms of the law at the time because the treason act of fifteen thirty one included in its definition of treason. This quote, when Amanda compass or imagine the death of our Lord the king that was treason Raleigh had definitely been really vocal about his dislike of King James

You missed in history class from how stuff works dot com. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm Tracy v Wilson, then I'm Holly fry as spokes. Probably. No. I grew up in North Carolina and its capital Raleigh is named after sir, Walter Raleigh. And aside from that fact, here are the things I could've told you about our Walter Raleigh before researching today's podcast, number one, he wrote some poems. I probably could not name any of them. There's actually a reason for that. He on purpose didn't publish most of them during his lifetime. He tried to keep his name out of it. But anyway, I knew he wrote some poems couldn't really say which ones number two, he was Queen Elizabeth, the first favorites. And this one time he put a cloak down over a puddle, so she wouldn't get her feet wet. That's probably not even true, and it never made sense to me as a child because I was like closer, not waterproof. She's just going to step on that and her feet are still going to get wet, and his cloak is ruined. So I'm going to get a little nerdy with you right now. Oh yeah. Because a lot of times the textile weaves at that time were really tight compared to what we would have today. So for at least a moment, it would have prevented water from seeping through. Awesome. Would not have been waterproof? No, but I long as it took her delicate little feet to cross over the offending puddle, she probably would have been covered. Thank you for resolving that question I've had since I was like maybe five, but anyway, that's probably not even sure we're going to get to that later. And the number three is sort of a like, blah, blah, something Roanoke colony. Just had a very vague understanding of, sir Walter rally, even though I grew up in a place whose capitals named after him among other things, sir. Walter Raleigh was accordion and an explorer and a historian and a member of parliament's, which we're not going to even get into that park today really at all. Also a soldier. He was part of England's defense against the Spanish armada as well as the Tudor conquest of Ireland. Some of which was truly horrifying very conveniently since this episode is coming out in October according to some people, he's a ghost now and we are also coming up on the four hundred anniversary of his beheading, which is why he's making an appearance on the show today. These a scary, headless. Ghosts is Walter Raleigh was born about fifteen fifty four in Devonshire England. Some sources put that day as January twenty second. But the year remains a little murky. His parents were Walter and Catherine Raleigh, and the younger Walter was the third of their surviving children. He also had half. Dealings from his parents. Previous marriages, Walter was the youngest boy of all of these siblings and half siblings. Their family was part of the Protestant gentry, and they weren't particularly well off or prominent, but they had been in Devonshire for a very long time and they had a lot of connections to people who were more well off and more well known. We don't know much at all about Walter's childhood or use, but he eventually went to Oriole College Oxford. He didn't finish his studies though in fifteen sixty nine. He went to France with the Devon volunteers to fight on the side of the Huguenots in the French wars of religion. He served for about five years, seeing two major battles and surviving the Saint Bartholomew day massacre in fifteen seventy two in fifteen seventy six rally was back in London, and he was in rolled at the middle temple, which was one of the four inns of court. But it doesn't seem like he was really studying law while he was there, which would have been a normal thing to be doing. At the middle temple, he was more treating it kind of like a gentlemen's club. Even though he never seems to have finished a course of study at Oxford or at the middle temple, he would go on to really develop a reputation for being very highly educated. Maybe he's just at PR super smart. You guys have studied a bunch who get a drink rally published his first poem in the fifteen seventy s as well. It was printed in the preface to the steel glass by George Gascoyne and the poem appears under the heading Walter Raleigh of the middle temple in combination of the steel glass with Raleigh spelled r. a. w. l. e. y. this is one of no joke seventy different spellings of Walter raleigh's name in the historical record. And as a side, note, the common spelling of our l. e. g. h. is not one that he used himself. He never signed his name with an eye in rally is also pronounced slightly differently depending on where you were from. I will. Tell you. I struggle with it because we have a cat named Raleigh. I see that way all the time. Even though he is in fact named after Imaginaire really Crump, but saying it really just doesn't feel right with the cat. I don't know why. Well, and an odd thing that I discovered, even though a lot of search technologies are good at interpreting your different spellings to give you results that are what you're looking for. There are meaningfully different responses for Walter Raleigh spelled r. a. l. e. g. h. and Walter rally spelled r. a. l.. E. v. h. with no, I on it, which meant that I got review all of my searching partway through this process. Why didn't I find this paper before? Because I had an eye in it in fifteen seventy eight rally and his half brother, Sir. Humphrey Gilbert went on an expedition possibly to try to find the northwest passage. But this expedition was largely a failure. Storms forced their little fleet of ships back to Plymouth almost immediately after they left and then they turn to what multiple writers describe as unauthorized privateer eating against Spanish ships, natural who decided to call it unauthorized privateer ring. That's just piracy. This unauthorized privateer ring brought them a lot of casualties and very little reward. So they're reception wasn't particularly favourable when they got back to England plus rally who had already had a reputation for being stubborn and hotheaded kept getting in trouble for disturbing the peace and dueling. He wound up spending time in both fleet and Marshall see prisons for brawling, possibly to try to keep him out of all this trouble. Some of raleigh's friends secured a commission for him as a captain in the army, and he was sent to Ireland. The Tudor, conquest of Ireland was going on. It had started long before Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne in fifteen fifty. Eight part of Ireland was solely under English control in the English part of Ireland, which was mostly around Dublin, was known as the pale. So the Tudor conquest was meant to expand the pale and also to solidify English rule within the pale side. Note a lot of. People believe that the phrase beyond the pale is a specific reference to this part of Ireland in the areas beyond it. But according to the Oxford English dictionary that is not supported by historical evidence, it is probably an association that people made leader during the Tudor, conquest, the province of Munster in the south west of Ireland sought to major rebellions against English rule, and they were known as the Desmond rebellions. The first one took place from fifteen sixty nine to fifteen seventy three rallies half brothers. Humphrey Gilbert was knighted for his service and that rebellion. The second Desmond rebellion started in fifteen seventy nine, and it was fueled both by resistance to English rule. And by the Catholic counter reformation, Gerald FitzGerald, the Earl of Desmond had gotten the support of the pope and of king. Philip the second of Spain. In this uprising, rally served with the English army during several engagements and the second Desmond rebellion. But the most notorious of these engagement was the siege of Smer wick troops from SP. Spain and Italy who were aiding the Fitzgerald's were being garrisoned at summer wick and Queen Elizabeth had sent English troops to put down this rebellion including dealing with these troops when the Spanish and Italian forces stood down Lord, Arthur grey, the Lord deputy of Ireland ordered for all of them to be massacred. This was one hundred percent. How England dealt with rebels at the time, had England been at war with Spain or Italy. The soldiers would have been offered some protection under the rules of war, but they weren't in the crowns view. They were helping Royal subjects rebel against their monarch. So they needed to be dealt with quickly efficiently, decisively, seriously tutor. England's treatment of Irish rebels could be extremely brutal. In the first Desmond rebellions. There Humphrey Gilbert was known to decapitate civilians who supported the rebels, and then display their heads on pikes along the path to his tent to companies totaling about one hundred eighty. Men were tasked with. Killing the enemy soldiers at Smer wick Walter Raleigh was one of the two captains in charge the English army massacred about six hundred people after this siege about one hundred of them were women and children. Rally was also one of the English officers granted lands in Ireland. After the end of the second Desmond rebellion. His allotment was actually the largest of any of the ones that were granted out of the Munster lands that were claimed after all of this was over, he also helped govern the province of Munster after this. And when he went back to London, he positioned himself as an expert in Irish affairs, which might have been part of what got him into such close confidence with Queen Elizabeth.
