Fresh update on "river valley" discussed on American Scandal
"It's November 17th, 1924, an hour 36 of the occupation at the Alabama Gates spillway. Inside a model T Ford, Edward Leahy sits fretting and staring out the window. Near the horizon, at the starting point of the aqueduct, there are hundreds of men, women and children. They seem to have formed some kind of encampment. There are tents and food and barbecue grills. It looks like a state fair with a glaring exception. The Owens river water still gushing out of the aqueduct and flooding the desert ground. Leahy grips the steering wheel as he stares out at this makeshift village. He'd rather do anything other than step into this fray. But he's the official envoy from Los Angeles to in yo county. It's his job to negotiate an end to this occupation. Lehi climbs out of the car and walks slowly through the crowd. He's lived in the Owens river valley for years, and he recognizes more than a few faces. But as he walks past them, he can feel their eyes burning holes in his back. Today, it's clear they think he's playing for the wrong team. It hurts to be seen as a villain. But Lehi reminds himself that this occupation is illegal. It's damaging the city of Los Angeles, his employer, and home to countless innocent residents, so despite his sympathies for the people of inno county, he's going to have to shut down this occupation. Lehi reaches the bottom of the gatehouse stairs, where he meets Mark watterson, one of the leaders of the occupation. For a banker, Waterson does a pretty good job of looking mean. His face is streaked with dirt and sweat, and he holds a rifle at his side. But Leahy isn't really afraid. He knows these people don't intend violence. So with a firm voice, he tells wanderson that everyone here should surrender, immediately. It's for their own good. But Waterson simply laughs. He tells Leahy, their long way from surrender. Lehi expected pushback. So he reminds wanderson that this is a hostage situation. Los Angeles is powerful and desperate for its water. The city will end this eventually. It's only a question of whether it will be peaceful or violent. Waterson looks out at the throngs of people at the bottom of the hill, shaking his head, he says the city would never take aim at a crowd of civilians. Leahy's posturing won't work. They're not leaving. And they won't allow Los Angeles to take their water. At least until William mulholland and the city settle up. Leahy can't believe this brazen act of ransom. He tells Waterson that this isn't a business deal, the people here have attacked city property. There will be no settlement. Waterson tells why he that he's wrong. As they speak his brother Wilford is down in Los Angeles, meeting with a team of city bankers. He's negotiating a payout in exchange for the end of this occupation. If that deal is successful, then and only then, with the people of ino county, leave the aqueduct alone. Lay's taken aback. He's heard nothing of these negotiations. If the city really is entertaining their demands, the way he doesn't have a leg to stand on. So figuring it might be a bluff, like he keeps trying. He offers one last argument. Millions of gallons of water are being drained onto the desert floor. It's a pointless waste. Waterson and his men should at least close the drainage pipe until an agreement can be reached. The Waterson shakes his head again with a smirk on his face. He says now, Los Angeles isn't getting another drop of water, not until the people of ino county are compensated for their loss. Looking around and all the angry locals, May he realizes that this parlay is over. There's no convincing these people. So he turns and walks back through The Crown. But as he approaches his car, he hears something and stops. The sound of a woman singing, another voice joins in, and then another until it's a full chorus of voices, swelling in the hot afternoon air. Leah he can't help but admire the show of solidarity. The people of inno county have been wrong. They have every right to stand up for their own dignity. But Lehi also knows that for all the singing dancing and barbecues, this demonstration won't bring peace to the valley. He's not sure exactly what you will take to end the stand on. But the longer it goes on, the more likely there will be blood. American scandal is sponsored by better help online therapy.

It's November 21st, 1924 in Los Angeles. Wilfred Waterson enters a plain brick building in downtown. It's full of men in suits, city types here to do business. Waterson takes off his hat and begins walking through a busy corridor. He's not a city type himself. Waterson is the owner of the inno county bank, about 200 miles northeast of Los Angeles. But he is here to do business. In just a few minutes, Waterson is going to sit down with a group of bankers who represent the city of Los Angeles. Waterson is planning to make the case that in yo county deserves retribution in cash that Los Angeles is going to pay. He won't settle for anything less than $8 million. His demand for money isn't anything new. For years, Waterson has been making the case for reparations. It's payback after Los Angeles took control of the Owens river and diverted the water south to the city. But today, Waterson feels emboldened. Just this morning, the standoff at the aqueduct entered its 5th day. The people of inho county have cut off the water supply, and they're not backing down. So Waterson has come to negotiate from a place of strength. Waters and strides down a carpeted hallway and enters a boardroom. He finds 5 men all in suits, already seated around a table, their expression strained. Warren takes a seat. He begins the conversation by reminding the city bankers that four years LA has taken water from the Owens river valley..

"Disorder resolve resolve these complex issues and circumstances that a black and brown people are dealing with all around the country. Our sad is unfortunate. You know but you know. It's a challenge. I'm up for it. But i have to be honest with yet a certain point. You do have to start thinking you know looking at it like. Is there going to be any there there and it makes you wanna move. Where should this question earlier about about if you feel safe in. You definitely made it clear that anybody ain't nobody run up on that porch. He made that very clear when we ask you to the other question because about as you were talking and you know i am originally from louisiana and as part of louisiana that is called cancer alley and i was talking with b-actor beverly right. who was diagnosed with cancer and are many people that we have we have cancer ministries literally in louisiana the so at some of the people get cancer. And as you're talking about it and definitely in obviously sorry to hear about your father who passed because of cancer but it's a part of our community right and we we. We're dying and we talked. We talked earlier about those bremmer to movement. And you know. They sometimes have a far forecast. Twenty thirty twenty fifty. But we've been dying to say no. We not waiting to twenty thirty to start dying. So i guess for me. My question was about early about safety. But do you feel supported. And what what would you being supported in this fight. Look like Tweet quite honest with you. Know i don't feel particularly supported i don't think our community bills particularly supported Yeah at all and part of it is because we are so small and we are tiny. we didn't feel very marginalized. I think i think i feel like speaker the community in that regard Lynn berry a overlooked. And just put on. The periphery and so That's an unfortunate thing but it's a very real thing and Pam either there are few and pretty much for all system that are in this movement in you. Know working on this issue and Even so even being black women and working in that kind of 'isolation it's tough because don's we don't even have support of the brothers because again you know some of them are working down at the plant and working at some of these places and so it's it's pushed forward is push for I believe that you know what i will have to see how people can support us is to start talking about it. Says you know speaking of your even if you are in an area with his. Mrs julie happening. You know to have that as part of the conversation. Did you know this was happening in west. Virginia Come join us. You know when we have a rally or you want to help but went together or what. Have you please come out and do that if you want to. Knock on doors um call and write letters the companies that type of thing we want you know do some types of of way cots and that type of thing i think all those things are things that can help but we do need More waste we need more people in this movement to really organize it and and be a stronger. Voice will be quite frank with you so this is my day so you talked about safety. You've talked about supported the last one one. The one of the last half where you is and regards to the other asked which is success. What does success look like and feel like and and and what's your hope Encourage as you keep going to achieve that success success for me looks like legislation. This says these lands will no longer be earmarked with this type of product production You know chemical production. That would be success for me. you know that they would have some type of plan to you. Know to have some type of alternative autumn it use without property Or just leave it alone. Did you know simply leave it alone. At is tired of you. Know seeing those fumes and mercury loud and things of that going all in the valley And they're just being a true of true commitment to a beautiful state and this is gonna be the state of tourism. That's really make it a a state of tourism. Let sort of rid ourselves of these chemical companies incorp processing plant from that type of thing This trion move into greenspace so that would be helpful at thank. You know any kind of legislation whether it's around you Green economies and moratorium on land. That is accessible Says have two more questions than one is actually for you for soapbox i wanna give you the mic to this. Really say whatever you want to say to the people we gotta we gotta. We had a pretty good size audience here to tunes in to this conversation so Wanted to say whatever you want to say This missing thing New thing is important but also in that. This is the first question. How can people not only if you work. How can they support you. How can i take action. Al goodness cases. I'm trying to think. I is there anything that has sort of like You know trying to convey as much as i can in terms of sort of the historical aspect and how he came to be where we are and really. I think it's just about getting to you know getting to where we need to be in how we can help folks All around the country but for our particular. You know 'cause you know people can contact me i'll give it out. Give a telephone number and email and get feel free to reach out and connect with me. you know for some creative solutions in some always sort of Advanced work that's ideal for me. But really i think it's just about trying to get the word out you know. I would love to speak to more audiences by people have podcasts of other people. Have you know newspapers and that type of thing because you know getting this word out. I think is very is very critical to the movement in letting folks know that there is an issue You know certainly again. Our legislation our legislators Had a lot of issues young. 'cause joe mansion down call joe manchin yonggang joe manchin. I know you're calling him for the poor. The people act and all these other issues are very important. But you know we've gotta get him on board when it comes to To these divisions environmental justice really staying up in eight in your legislators saying up in their faces about this thing because at the end of the day you know this is happening here but it could happen anywhere at any time politics for somebody to write some legislation or city municipality the change zoning in a law in the area and you may have something crop up in your backyard. So you know we've got to figure out how to You know insulate ourselves from these type of things and so yeah. Those those are Sort of my last words. You know this is very real and something that folks have been dealing with quite some time is certainly unfair. It's unjust and we need as much attention to this. In terms of black lives matter movement As any other portion of that because this is really about those black and brown bodies is just a different.

"It's May 21st, 1924, a pale moon hangs low in a remote stretch of California desert in inyo county. The morning dawn is still hours away, but Wilford watterson is wide awake. He stepped out of his car, stealing himself against the cold night air. And then he begins making his way toward a large concrete aqueduct. Waterson and his brother Mark own the largest bank in the Owens river valley. For years, he and the other residents of inyo county have tried to stop the city of Los Angeles from stealing their water and sending it 200 miles south. But all their efforts have failed. And within your county now struggling for survival, Waterson and a team of men have decided to take action. It's time to sabotage the Los Angeles aqueduct. Waterson makes his way to a serpent of concrete and steel, slithering across the desert 12 feet wide. Nearby, a team of men unload pickup trucks parked just below the aqueduct. Their ranchers and farmers and normally they work with shovels and livestock. But tonight the men are unloading hundreds of pounds of dynamite. The man finished laying the dynamite and stepped back. The charges are set. Now it's time to connect the detonator. Waterson looks over at John Murphy, a young man who served as a munitions expert in the army during the great war. It's his job to set up the detonation device. John, you almost ready? Almost. What's the holder? You have to light the fuse and get out of here. Well, Wilfred, that's the problem. Waterson steps towards Murphy. What are you talking about? Well, what I'm talking about is what happens after we set this off. How do I know you're not going to sell me out? Sean, what are you talking about? I'm the only one here who actually knows how to detonate these charges. That's why you're so important. An important now, but tomorrow morning every cop in the state is going to be trying to figure out who did this. And I'm going to be an easy mark. What's to keep you from turning me in? After tonight, nobody's going to need a guy who knows explosives. I don't own a bank. I don't know any politicians. I'm a perfect scapegoat. John. I'm the one who bought that stack of dynamite. I stored it in my warehouse. If anything, I've got the most to lose. Waterson looks around at the circle of men. Now look, everyone. This doesn't work if somebody squeals. If we all can't keep our mouths shut, we're gonna end up in prison for a long, long time, all of us. There's a murmur from the men in waters and clicks on a flashlight. He aims it at the dynamite. Don't forget what this is all about. We're showing Los Angeles that they can't just steal our water. We're not going to let our farms dry up and blow away. So, let's agree. We keep quiet and we finish what we started. Murphy swallows horn. And after several agonizing moments, he makes his way down to the aqueduct. Kneels begins attaching the lead line to the detonator. And he races back to waters inside. All right. You and I, John, we're in this together. Now, let's see those charts flow. Murphy cringe. Then he takes.

"Know. China workman that legislative piece. Wow and that's important folks folks who listening that people need understand that demonstration hours demonstration is critical but demonstration without legislation leads to frustration. So you gotta. It's important to understand that. What strategy does your work offer to meet the challenges that you are describing and then and then other parts of that question is would. Are you willing to do to win. Listen it's it's a hard. It's a hard fight of infighting it for a long time and to be honest with you as saying alluding to before it's really about educating this next generation and i do think that is going to be choir to be really successful is going to require you. Know allies on white allies to join this. You know movement to be quite frank with you We can't do it. You know when our own it's unfortunate that's the case but it just can't Or should they be much more difficult. So we've had some victories. We once some lawsuits. You know we've taken people to court over all sorts of issues we've gotten many spread this we you know You know there's an explosion in somebody's house lot and had a chimney. You know you could get some. You know a money and damages in that type of thing so you know we've been doing sort of that paper process with them in terms of of trying to change it filter and some of them that tired of being sued and was like all right. That's it we're done We were able to get them to stop making seven. Which was a pesticide So we had those victories but again you know it it sort of you know needed our allies to sort of work with us out with regard to that i think at this point My belief is that we need to start being much more demonstrative. We mean to actually be More front and center. I certainly have participated in protests with labor movement or labor unions about safety there and they're hiring practices there but to be quite honest with you. We have not yet done anything In terms of A big outward protests You know with banners. And that type of thing to bring more attention to it so pam nixon who is yet are Environmental justice subcommittee with nwc p Talking to her and talks with her about this this try and take this To them you know to their front door and really speak about this issue. And i'm hoping that we'll get a lot of people to come out and then people will respond the way that we would like to and we didn't have to take it to them. Yeah so so. So so i can. Some is from that that good trouble is on the way. yes good. trouble is indeed on the raw underway. In the meantime you know we've been trying to you. Know plan virtual conferences to edo equipped and engaged young people with information in really again trying to mary You know white folk seemed to resonate a lot with global warming and climate change and sort of marrying the two issues. Let them know that they're not mutually exclusive. So yes you know. Global warming will make stuff a lot hotter. You know 'cause you know greater title ways or 'cause you know all sorts of flooding and different things of that nature however at the same time the same things that are causing that are also adding to Contaminants in our air in our breathing capacities and whether we have higher rates of asthma. Not or whether or not we have bronchitis or copd or certain types of cancers or even opportunity issues that type of thing. So i think it's important to sort of Have a nexus between the two so that this move making be stronger and more vocal and so that's one of the things that i'm actually actively working on right now trying to figure out how we can make this more germane to more people and understand because the reality is that you know if you are the poor little black town. There's by the fence line in folks. Don't come there and list. They're going to school or they're driving due to get to the next city Because there's an unfortunate matter who stop there for you know quite honest we just you know. Got a couple of traffic lights not too long ago. Maybe a decade ago since small area people aren't invested in. They live ten miles or so away and they don't feel like they have their at risk of anything or any fallout. They're not compelled to get on board so With ethylene oxide. They're saying that they're the The span of that. I think about six miles so that brings in another city When either side but again a lot of those folks you still have family that work at those plans and so they're torn between whether or not they want to stop the manufacturer these things and perhaps not have Be able to feed their families or whether they die trying to do so and also speaks to you. Know your At least something earlier about you know. Why don't you just leave. And you know. I'll be honest with you. Those chemical companies were like. Hey we'll buy the whole town out you know we'll give everybody you know x. Amount of hundreds of thousands of that you relocate and so forth. i think the majority of people might even consider that to be quite honest with you but we have been there. We've been there since eighteen ninety one at least All black town. Pretty much You know might be about fifteen percent Wait at this point but Not a whole lot of other racial distinctions in terms demographics. There so we've been routed there we've been muted here for a long time but you know it does get. It does get tiring a does make. You wanna think about leaving. I was on a conference the other day and they were talking about ethylene and this the cavalier approach that the leadership had in the chemical companies had an even our department of environmental protection. There west virginia had it. I honestly i was so also agreed. That was just built. Pack my bags right now because on the one hand you know you want to fight the good fight but on the other hand is like are you willing to stay here in bad to do it and so that is the question. It does get to the point where you know. Is this something that you can do. Remotely is something that you know. You have stay here center around. And i've been there for quite some time You know but it just really made me think united just gone for a gynecological appointment in. They're checking for cervical cancer in alabama. Whatever comes back to the language other comes back in the game. And maybe it's a you know related to the back. I've been here for this period of time now You know which has only been since about two thousand fourteen. I moved back to kind of take care of my dad cancer. Like wooded that you know what that diagnosis as it is it. Is it worth you know. Continue to do the work. So i say yes that same time you know. I'm working hard feverishly to try and get an end to this nightmare. So that people can have productive. I can have a productive life and not have to sort of always be worrying about that. Always looking back around the corner for some kind of illness or disease jumped on me. Because i'm trying to do the right thing. I'm trying to fight the good fight so we need as many people In this issue.

"Toxins stop petrochemicals. Stop all these things in your community. It is also clear to me that you are an amazing powerful voice for justice but you also a black Women of color. Moot women In west virginia. So two things this is. I'm listening to you. Do you feel safe. And how do you maintain your your self care. I feel say yeah. I have no no issues about that. you know. We are tight. Knit community You know is just that type of thing there is no In my opinion any kind of safety concerns at all And to be as it you at the end of the day We are certainly a minority in terms of our numbers and So unfortunately i don't think that people really see as much of a threat is more so of a nuisance But that's okay. I'll i won't be able to take our sort of our our Our small group inc to be non-threatening because that allows us to make more moves into make more noise and you know to work in the background so to speak to galvanize more people income to really the world. Right now you know. Try to listen support in that type of thing so you know go ahead and you know they have those type with bots about us that we are here. We're not going anywhere at least locally We're trying to you know engage in and groom you know future leaders around this particular. Issue that yeah. I don't have any concerns with. They era in places you know everybody has done everydollar. Do better and different. You know i understand but that's just reality so nobody's walking number one award. Nobody's don't say. Hey janet my pocket ain't gonna be none of that kind so round me absolutely absolutely love it absolutely. Oh my god. I was phenomenal. You asking that was. That was so good right there. I like no no sports at no. Never asked me about the safety issue. I just have never felt that way. you know. But that's the reality is that they're they're more likely to do Pass legislation that will be you know more harmful than anything that they could do physically. So that's unfortunately and we tried to look let's go back to that chemical bonds then actually and let's talk about that. Let's talk about how when these companies have a business plan that means a death sentence for our communities. How does that kind of bondage take place. Yes so this is so interesting. I happen to buy coincident. Run into this chemist the other day and we were having a conversation and i asked him if he knew about some certain chemicals and ethylene is ethylene oxide is sort of. Like the chemical is your. That's like the new new thing that everybody's talking about emissions in a carcinogen l. in it's being emitted in many places and you know Significant amounts and institute happens to be one of those places man. So we're talking about this and try to make the story short. He disclosed amita. There had just been a conference or some kind of celebration. I should say up in clendenin west. Virginia which is probably a bow Maybe about twenty five miles thirty miles away from where i am. predominantly will pretty much exclusively white area But nonetheless very role. So they had the celebration in the celebration was about this. Stablishment of carbide in-car by union carbide. Which is one of the main one of the first chemical companies to take foot in in the in the country in the united states and it all started in clendenin in what he was telling me. Is that these people come from new york. And all these different places converged upon clendenin and said they're all these natural resources and gas under You the in the land of west virginia. How can we exploit this. And where can we go. And they basically came up with a plan went back to their respective states. Did all this work develop. Union carbide input it into in west virginia. Now at the same time that this was happening Or at around the same found. This is happening or reps. Shortly thereafter was virginius was gene. Then colored institute. I think it may have changed it. West virginia collegiate institute. I'm not sure where it was at that point when that was happening. They had deeded land beside the university to the government for the war effort and The the Production of rubber because rubber was so such demand for wheels and tires and all that to go overseas. no they they leased lashes. They needed a lease the land to The government for that purpose so once the war was over. They decided not to give the land back to the school where they did was they then. Sold the grounds to union carbide. And so you've got. Hp see you there. All these black kids going to school there. is the only public Institute for your institution in that part of the state at the time. And that's where everybody went. That was. That was the school. That was the mecca. I mean we were a well established. You know part of the the way We had teams that we know. Undefeated and many sports does or it was a very significant school and everybody came there to teach Everybody came there to arm and so anyway they gave this land away and so the detrimental effects of corsican effect those students and then the nearby neighborhood which was pretty much all the black residents that came out of that school people came here and settled or you know tot and live there and so the very purposeful thing that we used to have. People don't also realize that west. Virginia state had an airfield. It was called wirtz airfield and because of that airfield. We were actually one of the first Flight programs and we were met at desert tuskegee. They moved that program to tuskegee to build it. They're closed down our airfield with the chemical companies there and that was the end of that so Since then every you know every few years for a company will go out in another one will come in now. We have had some successes were able to get. Union carbide to get the heck outta there but then we got bayer bayer had explosion. We were able to get them of there. But we still have dow we still have all these other little startups. Now have us methanol us. Methanol moved there. The owners are from out of the country as are most of the owners of these companies They brought over a tank and all this equipment from brazil. We have been defunct. They took it apart. barged to west virginia. Put it back together and consider us to be in a safe environment. I mean this thing when it and you could see rest all over it but you know. They've painted it. Made it really pretty and you know made it. You know a shining star for the state and they feel like oh well. Now he got seventy more jobs. But what's the value of seventy jobs when you have you know thousands of people nearby. Who at any time. Kim that blows up or something happens. Or there's a series leak you know you can be out of there like that so it's been it's been an issue been a challenge and something that we're really trying to fight and one of the things you know i've been trying to push for actually ran for office Last than twenty twenty district sort of of advances issues as i'm trying to get a moratorium. At what point can we just stop the transition of this land. Just let it be a brown land but is figure out something else that we can do with it. Can we make cars. Can we may aspirin. Do we have to make round up. Do we have to make these things that are really you know harmful and i feel like there are ways to do that but again our state is really just not Because they're if they can't get a kickback zone incentive for them so we really have to either vote people out and get some other people in Or just you.

"To the university of maryland. When i left you know the first thing i did was start. You know helping build shanties and protesting bell against partake so That's how i shoot. Showed up with their work. Initially and really recognizing that you know people that are black and brown often On a fence line when it comes to chemical pollutants of every variety and really realizing that we need to sort of a reverse that trend speak more to that. I mean speak more to. What is the pacific challenge. You face right now. I in your community speak wise urgent and and also you know what is it. Look and feel like You know when you're dealing with challenges right now to overcome them. I was It can be stressful times. Of course it can be frustrating. Because i would say particularly for west. Virginia you have a sort of a duality and it doesn't really make much sense you on the one hand you've got a state and you've got leadership that wants to bolster the place as this great. You know mecca for outdoor recreation. Come here whitewater rafting bungee jump. Do all these great adventures. But at the same time they are behold into chemical companies to coal industries that actually deplete land of its resources and contaminate the water's the air's gland Just by their products that they're producing so you know when you're living there and you understand you know that this is happening. It has aids very very because your your cries and your activism very often falls on deaf ears. So that's been one of the biggest challenges it's really trying to shift the narrative but we have folks that are just you know they are in bed with those industries are getting kickbacks You know they're getting sources of you. Know all sorts of benefits because of that alignment but meanwhile the people are suffering You know west. Virginia has the forest health outcomes in the country As a direct result of the things that we breathe and we drank. We've had a water crisis as recent we've had chemical explosions we had you know coal mines. You know impo and so there's a lot of you know immediate catastrophic things that have happened to people but long-term effects the lingering effects are the things that we have really been trying to highlight and bring attention to and it's also very difficult because While we know that this is the case we also understand it you know. These entities provide jobs and when you have an economically depressed areas such as west virginia and it hasn't developed beyond those particular industries people. Get very afraid. When you're talking about shifting the culture or changing industries where they're dobson adele. We saw that You know sort of attack against obama you know. He's against calway. Hillary clinton but the bottom line is that for our our country's greater good for our children's better grid childrens children. We have to start cleaning up the environment. Little by little in that of course deals with carbon emissions and climate justice will also includes the environmental other environmental pieces like those chemicals and co pollutants air quality. Yeah you know. As i'm listening to you i'm thinking about. I want to speak to this in this aspect because people who are hearing this sometimes they come from communities where they don't understand that were coming from west. Virginia the next lymphoma black appalachia the not coming from our communities. Where they they just think. Well why don't you just leave You know what we know. Why are you sticking around for that so so speak to how complex this is in your community conversation when you're sitting around In there and in west. Virginia but also. What do you want to hear this. Well i really want the world to hear this. And i will just say that you know. It's very interesting experience. 'cause i understand you know that when folks are having to deal with economic strive and low wealth and those type of issues It's hard to sort of critize things that you hear like metal isocyanate or ethylene oxide. Those things seem very Very heady very Bass in beyond a person's basic sort of comprehension. They stand that way into read. It is almost impossible you know for most people So people are often disconnected from that issue I in a part of a community panel that sort of designed to bring the chemical companies and the comedians gather and. I do believe they need to do better about making sure that information about what's being manufactured in areas gets into the directly into the hands of people. I don't care you knock on their doors and give him a fire or just have some conversations. It's hard especially with kobe. Hard to give you welcome town halls but You know again. When people are concerned about food water clothing shelter you know whether their children are going to be able to get in school safely and that type of thing things that don't seem to have an immediate impact on you are sort of you know displaced on the back burner and so we're really having just kind of pushed into that and educate folks now before You know in west when institute was sort of like the more more pop in plays and you know a booming area you know at certainly amongst the most educated folks in the in the state itself Because everybody you know basically was in that community had gone to the university or you know even from high school just going right featuring right into university or the college at the time but a lot of that generation has died. All you know we're at our final crossroads with that group with that one more generation and that sort of kinda knows What has happened in new. The history of the school understood history of the community and understood how we even got into bondage with chemical pollutants that type of thing Which is there another story out. I'm happy to share that with you. if you and ask about that but they know they his jar were asked to get him so they understand that with the new again are not that Cute in to be quite honest with you and certainly You know i think now is an opportune time. Because i think the one thing about you know the black lives matters movement is that so. Many people have rallied around that issue. And you can't really speak about black lives matter without looking at the totality of the life. And that's not just police. Brutality and that reform movement there also has to do with our environmentally in our ability to live a quality of life and to have good health outcomes in long-term for ourselves in our children and future generations. Why is it. Why is it important when you're to be one in community and also to also be in solidarity. Well i mean clearly you know you need united voices to actually make a difference. It's very hard for a person to do something in a silo and to be that lone voice of you like you know horton years who you know that just one lone foot waste and people don't take you seriously you know they're just you know you might be you know. Label you know the militant chick over there or.
"river valley" Discussed on Think 100%: The Coolest Show
"Have one hundred kid next day respect. Read nick everything was not hit by. We are excited about this conversation. Here we are having a important conversation about the need to stop. Petrochemicals and we've been dealing with three regions on region was in louisiana. One region was in texas and the other reason is the ohio river valley. And so. I'm so excited to have with me kathy ferguson And she is a community advocate from the unincorporated district of institute. West virginia champing social environmental economic and restorative. justice causes. Kathy has for over twenty five years. Been doing this work at a very high level. And she has twenty five years experience working in social services within the criminal justice system today she worked as a community activist. Demonstrating a clear commitment to helping those who are in most need in giving voice to those who are disenfranchised. An agent for change. Miss ferguson is a believer in social justice and equality for all and dedicates both her professional and personal time towards this end. So my sister. kathy. How are you. i'm doing. well thank you so much. Yeah yes good to have you. But so i i read a little bit of your your bio but for you know. I know there's a lot more than just the bio and are some actually this question. Who is cathy ferguson. Oh my gracious listen. bio is spitting much summed. It up I in depth and definitely an auschwitz. Dick person with a passion for the people A child of you know a a father that was from appalachia and lived in an independent writing by community a mother who from harlem and was a member of the black panthers and so those two forces converged and i came out of that. Fire that passion. And i'm just sort of taking off where digging up where they left all and really just trying to do You know good work in the community so But i'm also a hip hop and china generation. That's my jam. And that's my thing and you know i'm on that l. L. side of things most ended today. You know it's all good you know we just keep moving forward and lebanon culture mob. nothing else. is these old school. And he's new school and at at the same time putting putting if you like the the wrapping or the acting. That's right you can't go with those things and You know so. Have i in my life and career so So what about west. Virginia actually So i i is your family from there i mean. How did you moved west virginia. Let's talk about that community. yes so. My father is originally from west virginia. he came from a family The ferguson family that owned a farm down that way and You know three brothers. Actually and they all went to the military and it really great things but my grandfather was actually the dean and the first registrar virginia state university now state universities to be west. Virginia colored institute is at hcc. A lot of people. Forget about The school in town of institute because it is unincorporated but because of Desegregation that is of the schools that actually ended up becoming and is currently like eighty percents if not more Caucasian and so if sort of flipped. But you know we stay tethered to our roots and to that experience and so you lived in a very grew up in that thriving community. But again i was born in new york with my mother was my father. Went there and they met fell in love and just a very progressive set of parents Which was a little interesting because west. Virginia has not known to is not known for being progressive and certainly in this political climate. We see a lot of things with our senators mansion and capital and the movement of. They're making they're really kind of showing virginia to be a different type of space for people that are progressive and people that are intervene born so it's been a little bit challenging a lot of challenging But you know we're making do in china push through the best way that we can is an experience though. Black appalachia is real. No is it is black israel. And i also want to say this for folks who don't know I'll liberation and a good bit of our story is tied to west virginia. have you are someone who understands liberation of black people. You cannot tell that story without telling the story john brown. There is no way you can go forward without giving that story About that white. That white man that white man's family who fought in died to end slavery And i believe actually a lot of folks after that you know that was the beginnings of the civil war and things so that spirit of john brown has to run through west virginia some way whereas of course it does you know and it also started with labor movement Do we had blackcomb coal. That were on. The front line was the first time that lasts whites actually came together to work for labor rights and You know they call them their red scarves and they had that big battle the in west virginia so that really was the kickoff for labor rights around the country so it started in west virginia and just shout west virginia in terms of our other black leaders. Folks don't realize and don't often remember that george washington. Carver has roots in west virginia booker. T. washington came out of west. Virginia leon sullivan. That was responsible for you. Know the sullivan principles. That ended apartheid came out of west virginia. We've got some heavy hitters. Come out of our area. Of course you all know hidden figures katherine johnson. The mathematician out west. Virginia's don't sleep world west. Virginia also sleep for years. Ed history. i mean even the niger movement in From the beginning of the dp there. I was obviously over in canada. The next stop was actually west. Virginia so that people don't know there's a lot of history there so with being says what do you work on. And how do you show up in this work. Well you know Because i did grow up there. My first sort of for a into this environmental justice movement actually started because of methyl isocyanate and people commonly known as m i see and that was a particular chemical that killed Thousands of people in bhopal india people of color across you know the waters and so what we did not realize that there only two places that this chemical was being made was being made in bhopal india in little oh institute west virginia and so when we found out about that My father started an organization called people concerned about mac. And i think the time is probably about fifteen years old Maybe fourteen about to turn fifteen and you know it was one of those things where you know we had to where we were spits in a smell certain things in the community releases or hear sounds he would always call the chemical companies and that was just what we did and so that was sort of mine. Yea shin into sort of pushing back against establishment and doing that type of thing so that's sort of informed my life going forward and of course at an age.

The Complicated History of The Rhine
"Our hearts are heavy. Knowing that the romantic views of castles and vineyards and germany's rhine river valley are overshadowed by the recent loss of life and flooding devastation. In germany and the low countries just downstream. From where we're talking about the following interview with tour guides tabby and ruger and nico fava real was recorded last year hot drinks so being. Give us a feeling for the medieval ryan which really created the ryan. We see today as tourists the most important trading river the with the romans already the problems with the rhyme began. It was widely considered that east of the rhine burien live. West of the rhine was civilization. And that's i went all the way through into modern history. France of course try to make for centuries the ryan its eastern border. The germans fought back and eventually of course that ended in one thousand nine hundred eighty. It's interesting when you think about it. That the ryan would have been a huge border culturally between the romans and the barbarians and from a french point of view between the french and the germans. Yeah so when you have a border like that nickel in in europe generally what happens it's Where wars having between. France and germany divorce happen then the ryan either stopped the wars or a lot of areas on the border especially in the french part of the border for instance. The elvas as region has been taken by germany. Many many times am so. It's a war zone between countries. So also been the war zone between religions catholics. Protestants fought over as yes in that area today. Even i mean today. It's kind of the border between catholic and protestant europe. Yes you could say that. Yeah north of the ryan is definitely more protestant. Now when you have the in the middle ages there was not a lot of Paved roads there is not a love law and order. If you wanted to get your goods to the market going down. The river was was one safer way to do it. I suppose it was a safe way. But you have to be careful of something. called robber. Barons who stopped ships along their journey but big chains along or across the rhine made the ship. Stop in and steal everything or steal everything in well amount of duties to say you've gotta pay ten percent of what's on your boat to continue down. Yeah i've heard this word robber. Baron castle so maybe the rhine river fabulous is sort of the quintessential example of a robber. Baron castle zone robot. Baron is a term in particular rob nights for a particular phase during the holy roman empire. Where nights had fallen so poor that the only way to keep the status was to rob traders and so on even if it was not their right to do so and eventually the problem became so bad that you had this middle class of nights who had fallen poor and became robust that the big tradings and merchants. The city's gathered union and under the emperor thing was the second thirteenth century or so. They sent this along the rhine to clear out all the rubber nights castles and literally hung them from the trees along the rhine
"river valley" Discussed on Cutting The Distance with Remi Warren
"I think one of the things that allows me to do this. Podcast is kind of the format that it set up as you may notice that it is pretty much just me talking into the microphone and like well. That's a little bit different or this. This kind of format you know you. Maybe don't hear a lot of solo style podcast but if you think about it a lot of things that you are so self. Filming solo hunter Everyone's probably like man. This guy remedies real loner and that's not the case. I do enjoy the company of humans. I love being out in nature more but my lifestyle is very pneumatic. I try to live by this principle. Be out hunting as much as possible and so far. I've been able to successfully manage that now. I think that like with guests and other things and and that kind of idea just wouldn't really fit into that because i'm traveling lot. I'm gone a lot. Connecting might be difficult. I have very limited service a lot of a lot of the year. actually to be honest So i was like okay. What's a way that we can kind of. Make this podcast. Where i what i wanted to do accomplish a few things i wanted to be able to tell stories in entertain because i enjoy the process of telling stories and i think that's one thing that really makes hunters kind of unique like their their stories but there's something about hunting story and so i i won't be able to share those stories but also like provide some kind of tips to make people better. I feel very fortunate to follow that lifestyle of being the field as much as possible. And i feel so fortunate that like i want to be able to share what i learned with other people. So this kind of format came about but the first episode was episode went back in twenty nineteen and is about a story about missing the biggest buck of my life but i actually think the better story for the podcast would have been what i was doing. While he was recording first episode. I was actually in new zealand and i had gotten just got done off of a hunt. And i'm i don't know i like hunt till the very last minute. It doesn't matter if if you're mike. Hey i've got a ten day hunt. I hunt till like i need to be back and it was same deal so like i had some bad weather toward the end of the trip and actually it was like i gotta go out on tar hunt a hunter as much as possible while i'm there. I need one last star. He one more fixed before. I get home and i can't even remember how long i was there that that trip may be like two or three months and so i'm like all right. I'm going to get this last trip. And and unfortunately it was like really kinda shit weather and got rained. Out and was kind of a bummer. But anyways i was like okay. I'm sitting there and i'm thinking i'm not going to be able to get a hunting because the weather's so bad so i'm like sitting at the trail head the last place where the road kind of ends and like looking at the river and thinking there's no across crosses beast so i'm just waiting camped out in my truck like through horrible rainstorm waiting for the river to go down so we were finally like starts to go down test the waters and like i think i can make it so drive across the river and i park ended up like being like okay. I'm going to go up this one canyon because the river got i was like. There's no way. I could drive up this river valley any further so i parked my truck. And i'm like. I'm just going to hike across and go this one valley and i've got like a day to do it so i hike across. I actually got swept down the river completely drenched in of getting out crawling out. Luckily i didn't lose any gear like this is so stupid. I'm going to die and get to there's like an old hut and it's one of these huts there's just like completely overrun with mice and rats. Nobody stays in this hut. Because it's just gnarly. But i was like okay. I need a fire and it's just been raining for three straight days. So i get in there. There's a little bit of wood left in the fireworks in the fire in the wood box like all beach and stuff so i kind of break that up make fire dry on my stuff out. Climb up the mountain the next day. Shoot itar get out of there and luckily is like i got out of there and it just started to like downpour again flash flood. Whatever so. I'm like oh man i'm wet. I've got every like meat and things that i need to process and i've got a flight that's impending like i need to start driving back to christ church back to your so get to town mike. Okay i gotta deal with the tar. Had a butcher. Like i gotta do all this stuff and mike. But i'm i'm very limited amount of time and also of course had to send off like it's been months delayed as like i. I gotta get this first podcasting out because i was getting out and pretty good about like. If we're gonna do this. We need to this thing down right now. So i'm like sweet. Okay so i'm going to do my stuff and record the pocket. So i get a hotel. It was like airport hotel out of christchurch. Probably shouldn't see the name of the place because once they hear what was going down. Probably never get hotel room there again and but this place because it's head out of freezer so i've got like i'm pretending like oh. Yeah everything's good. But i've got this tar school. And i've got a bunch of me. Those are gonna freeze and take out but this place had a freezer. So i've got like i went to the store on the way i got a bunch of cellophane saran wrap so. I'm like pretty much butchering this tar in a bathroom hotel. And i'm like i'm going to. I'm going to freeze what. I can take back what i can and then i was going to give some to my friend on the way out. Who's dropping the off the airport. So sweet but i was like man. I want to take the storrow tar school home. So have i got my little jet boil. I've got a little pot in there boiling in the bathroom. Running the exhaust fan like suck it out and make sure it doesn't smell and luckily i did so. I did get a pre boil over the fire so this is like it was good. But i just wasn't good enough so i'm boiling the pot in there and i'm like all right cool i was like i gotta do this podcasting so i got all my stuff organized. Get everything ready. And i finally got that but i was like i need to dry and went to the grocery store. Got some like what would it be like blonde platinum hair dye. Do use the peroxide in to like bleach it out so i've got soaking in this thing i think i can't even remember is probably i think the the boyle was probably going on while i was recording the first pockets all right. I'm tone story of the hunt doing the thing and meanwhile i'm in a hotel room with a skull boiling in the bathroom after just butchering this tar and processing it in the hotel room kind of like undercover and that is why these episodes are all solo staff. Because it's it's the life on the road and spending a lot of time in the hills and then just being able to accommodate and make sure that i can knock out a podcast week for now. What is one hundred weeks. So that is the kind of the story of the genesis of cutting the distance podcasts. I talked to a telling like enjoying details stories. And i think there's been a lot of cool stories over the last one hundred episodes. I don't know. I think if i had to pick.
First-Ever Wind Chill Warning Issued For North Texas
"Winter weather is clobbering parts of the U. S in portions of Texas the coldest there they've seen in over 30 years, so he had winter really settling in across the country. It's not just the cold.

A Big Dose Of Perspective With Jack Kornfield
"Jack. Great to see you and thank you for coming Great pleasure thank you. Dan also for having me. It's time when we. I think we need to all come together and use our best wisdom and understanding of how to navigate. I completely agree and so let me. Just start with your mind. What are you doing to stay even in your own mind. Of course i meditate some but more importantly arrested in place that has a lot of spaciousness in it and a kind of trust. I'm old enough at age. Seventy five to have seen revolutions. Common go and difficulties arise in pass. Have and i also see that. There's i guess it was martin. Luther king talked about the moral arc of the universe being long but advance toward justice. I see that there's ways that systems also regulate themselves so whether it's the pandemic that we are in the throes of that is really causing enormous amount of suffering and loss whether it's the political disruptions in the capital and otherwise were just the calls for racial and economic justice that we needed for so long. I feel we're in a evolutionary process with its fits and starts. And i think about people like one gary mata who won the nobel prize for the greenbelt in east africa. She started by planning one to ten. Twenty fifty trees got other people to do. It eventually was thrown in prison on. I think that's a requirement for nobel peace laureates mostly And ended up planning fifty one million trees in changing a lot of the face to be africa or or or ellen sirleaf in manga bowie also nobel prize winners who said their country. Liberia used to be known for its child. Soldiers in had these terrible civil wars and now it's known for its women leaders and so there is some way in which just as the green sprouts come up through the cement in the sidewalk. There's something about life in. it's also the human heart that wants to renew itself. And so i rest back in kind and loving awareness to say yes. Let me turn my gaze away from the from the needs suffering the things to respond but also to hold it in a much bigger context justice. I agree that universe in the world is breathing. And that's how i keep my mind on a good day not the mean. There are bad days a bad moments but mostly my heart is pretty peaceful but you know there are things. I get a call from my daughter. Dad you know. This terrible thing is happening. At the nonprofit she runs for getting asylum for all people whose lives are endangered. What do i do our calls from dear friends. Oh my family has covid. So i'm deeply touched by these things and responding. Sometimes they really affect me. And i can feel the pain of it. You know or give worried but with all of that. There's a rounded a field of loving awareness of spaciousness entrust. That gives a much bigger picture and there. I'm just going on back away trying to answer your question and also spread out a little bit. When i was a monk training in the forest monasteries in southeast asia as a buddhist monk the main forest temple i lived was in a province adjoining. Both laos in cambodia was during the war in vietnam and laos cambodia. So we would see fighter jets going overhead and bombers and you know in some of the branch monasteries you could even see flashes from the from the bombs and people would come visit us. I had friends who were working in. Vietnam laos people that i knew as i had been working on medical teams in that ray calm river valley saying what are you doing sitting on your you know. There's a war to stop. There's things we need to do and my teacher would say. This is the place where we stop the war.

Digital anthropology with Genevieve Bell
"I think i think many of us when when we actually think of technical systems we think of the modern digital technologies but technical systems. They've been around weavers an awful long time they have. And it's nice to get to talk to you. And per james and often when i start conversations not usually podcast but other conversations. I'd stop by actually acknowledging. I am and that's partly a story about an older technical system are today. I'm sitting on the lands of the wall and nambi people. I don't want to pay my respects to the eldest pasta present and to acknowledge that this compensation will be listened to on the lands of traditional owners and traditional elders all over the world. I wanna pay my respects to them to and from a pot of acknowledging the place where you're standing with the place where you're starting is whenever i want to think about technical systems or about build a future all telling stories about the future. I like to imagine that most of those stories didn't come out of nowhere right. They start somewhere with someone. And i'm lucky enough to live these days in a country where humans have been building technical systems. Well first closest forever as we can probably get so. There are technical systems in australia. That died back. Forty sixty thousand years. And i was thousand years. Yeah absolutely humans deliberately creating structures that changed the world in order to create different kinds of experiences. I was lucky enough. Two years ago to go visit one. I in a town called warrener was on the new south wales queensland border. So you're thinking of a map of australia. Go two thirds of the way up mostly to the right and the river system and there's a place where a large riba abandons basically and on that band there are a series of stone. Fish whiz archaeologists argue. About how old they are. But the running argument somewhere between four to forty thousand years old in either instance that makes them some of the oldest human built technical structures in the world and these are deliberate right. They extend columbia in distance. Downriver they are a series of stone u-shaped pens that were built to contain the fishes. The water moves up in flows down that river in the fish. Move up that are filters the fish. Basically in flow of their series of fish fish traps all they built like fishnets. That is the origin story of the one of the ancestors decided to build a stone. Fish nets they will lost photographed in use in the nineteen teens So a system that is thousands if not tens of thousands of years in the making it suggests incredibly on robust understanding of hydrology of fish behavior. These have been carefully tended and curated over seasons and he is in decades and they were not built for the sake of them are. They weren't because someone said got some startling lying around. We should do something with that comes from quite some distance. It's dry stone. If you know anything about that. Kind of technology said dry stone walls familiar. I suspect in your part of the world as mine and they were utilized with complicated social patents about who tended them who will job to the fish but ultimately what they was in the service of doing multiple nations to gather on the banks of that river and trade conduct rituals exchange information a human at scale and so he has this system that says the humans that lived in that place on the stood stone but amsterdam hydrology. They understood the behaviors of fish. And i thought about people and human society. And so whenever i think about technical systems in my now life twenty-first-century like to hold that idea in the back of my head that it is possible to build technical systems. That are not just technologies right. They are systems of knowledge. They are ways of understanding the environment ways of making sense all the end supporting human behavior and that those things don't have to be At all to each other they can actually exist as a system of systems. And so it's kind of this powerful image that sits in the back of my head most is not that system if it lasted that long forty thousand plus years then they have been managing it. I guess you mean they're they're also iterating it. Because the absolutely there's evidence of that system evolving and growing over time expanding and contracting in terms of where the storms will being moved. And of course it's also system that existed through a period of european colonization of australia so when europeans i turned up in that set of river valleys in the eighteen eighteen twenties. They sold the ways. They knew that average won't people had fish there by the time. The townships built there later in that century Europeans took some of the rocks out of the river because they were smooth and well shaped and use them to make the foundations of the towns nearby. Thus both changing the way that system work but also taking some of that knowledge and in some ways inserting it into a whole although structure and in the meantime new concrete ways will put on that river to redirect the water so that it could be used for shipping and that sort of changed those systems. but no. you're absolutely right. That's a period of time. So thirty ten thousand years forty thousand years multiple changes in global environment such that people would have had to have thought differently and continued to write and evolved that system and work out what worked and then they were willing to change and how to go about changing it and i think you know for me. I don't know about you to. I've spent a long time silicon valley and it's been a long time around engineers and the notion of site someone right. Here's the thing that system you'll building. I need to get at least ten thousand years out of it. Forty would be excellent but tanzi bottom is other than stewart brands long now foundation. I can't think of that. Many people who are thinking on a ten thousand horizon for a technical system given given that we've we've done those can achieve those kinds of technical systems of those kind of periods of time on scale given the frustrations with with how many the systems we're dealing with the developing six silicon valley valet or in the digital sphere. That feels frustration. Feels were not building stuff with that kind of sam. Not we're not just diligence but thoughtfulness and consideration for how. It's going to do what it wants to should be doing. In the beginning we do. Also i think we have not necessarily thought about technology inside those other relationships and responsibilities. Right when i sort of may one of the things about these fish traps in war and other systems like them is that they want just about starting right. This is not olympics oriented system. We have a phone system. It's not that right. It was designed with the intention of supporting human activity in known human activity and things that mattered and it was designed into the environment rather than pretending that it didn't exist with a blank slate right so there's a. I'm not sure that we miss the ball. I think it's that we allow ourselves to imagine different starting point and we haven't always thought about technologies that way you look back at multiple points in the history of the west in the history of technologies globally. We've often been willing to imagine. That would different starting points and didn't always start with. Oh have this technology. What will we do with it. It often started with this thing. We should look at how to do better. Or i think being trying to think about having a soul or or attention we need to resolve. And we're going to put technology in the middle to resolve it.

More Halloween Wines 2020
"It's now, it's me Dave from a cheap wine finder.com off the scary music playing which means is another Halloween wines episode. And today we've got I mean look at it. It's Freakshow Lodi Chardonnay. 2818. Yeah, it's a freak Show Off is actually not all that scary the scary but the freak Show is more reference to a long time probably novel side shows and on the front. There's the mermaid lady the fish lady and it's kind of scary in the Ray Bradbury Something Wicked This Way Comes kind of way, which I'm done with. They're trying to get in. But you know. It looks good. And it tastes great. And the best thing about this one thing I find our for $14 is from Michael and David their their fifth generation. I think the 6th generation still working at the winery grape Growers and Lodi the family has been farming there for over a hundred and fifty years, which is kind of off but I'm talking here which is kind of common in Lodi. There's a lot of the big names there have been there for Generations, which is one of the things I like about it were so many Palm wine brands in California are fo wine Brands mean no Winery. No Vineyard safe, they buy the grapes and they rent the space make good wine, but low tides that I'm not doing an old-school. This is a really good Chardonnay. It's half barrel fermented and 1/2 stainless steel fermented, but they used all new o'farrell's off. I don't know what he said, but I'm afraid now and 80% new French barrels and 20% new American Oak barrels that's expensive. This is a line. I found off $14 and that's an upscale a little detail that really makes this wine because it's got really premium. It's Gotta Stay prudent Michael and David they have different lipsticks sense cerrad a couple of other brands there. They do a good job along with Freak Show also has as in a Cabernet seven young at a red blend which are like those are three of the best things you can get out of load at. And you know, it's a really great place for value-priced. Why isn't this Chardonnay? Leave me alone. You're trying to scare me, but it won't work. It's a really great place though the San Pablo Bay, which is the northern part of San Francisco Bay goes far enough Inland, even though it's The Vineyards are like from 7,200 miles away from the ocean. The bay is up there and there's all these river valleys that go flowing through there. It's lower areas cold air gets funneled in there and they can have wine even though nothing around them is the old able to grow grapes. Napa Valley is north of them and West and they're in the mountains and that changes everything to load. I'm not have the mountains or they're they have valleys. This is a really tasty chardonnays and the oak program with all that new Oak and and the fermentation and Oak really comes through cuz there's some really delicious page here. And it's it's nothing is over-the-top. Everything has kind of bounced out and it's like there's some salty and loose things. There's there's some buttery phone numbers. There's some creamy flavors are some ripe fruit flavors. There's just a lot of flavor here. So if it's not the scariest Halloween one, I could come up with no skulls or you know, anything like that. It does taste really good. Can you hear that too, or is it just me? So anyway? I keep on taking ships cuz it's that good. It's a delicious why it's got its because of all that Oak and the way they made it they you know, even though it's a 2018. It's it's it's still a kind of a young one that's got a good and engages your pal in a really nice way. So that's it for me. I found a freakshow chardonnay from I have the zombies invading my headphones and They're good. So I'm the next one. Keep it cheap, but there's more Halloween's lines come in and adios, and bye-bye.

How To Teach History
"So, what what do you do with history? What's your basic? Approach, while I will say this, you're the one who taught me how to teach history in my early homeschooling years so I do it very much the way that you Michelle For sure we've always taught history in order when I was in school I was always confused about when things were happening and how things were related to each other. When I learned about historical figure, it wasn't in context of where they were or when they lived and I never knew how things connected I I remember in fifth grade we did this project about the Aztecs and. Each like our teachers split us into groups and each group was doing a different hands on project by the Aztecs and it was a great project. I remember vividly how the Aztecs built their village or town right on top of the lake and that that's what my project was about and I remember that but I also remember having no idea when the Aztecs happened in history, I had no concept of win. That was I thought they were very, very ancient people that was my impression. And that turns out not to be true they actually were. More. In the colonial era, they were much more modern. Yeah I think that was the problem with my early education history is it just lacked connections I didn't understand what history could teach me because I didn't have any contextual basis for the people, the places, the events, I didn't have a complete picture in my mind. So that's been one of my goals with my kids is to help them see the big picture of history and to be able to. Know when and where things happened. So, let's back up and just start with when we say history exactly. What do we mean? First of all history starts with the earliest civilizations and I think that's something that. People. Get confused about because we know that there were caveman and. There's this whole Earth history that happens before the subject of history, but the academic subject of history starts with the earliest civilizations. Well. And that's not because the people who came before weren't important. It's because the people who came before didn't write down their stories in any way we don't have an archeological record of them not much and we don't have. Any records at all of them, they didn't build cities that we can go back and excavate. The academic subject of history is just the story of human civilization. That's what is. I often tell my kids. This is why it's so important for you to write down your stories because anyone who didn't have a record of their people or their lives or anything that happened. That kind of. With time and so history we're looking at, Hey, let's look at the story of the people who have lived on the earth and it's totally find teach about cavemen but there's not a lot of actual information that we know when we don't have any written records. So so layers of learning starts with the earliest civilisation. Yeah. We start with Sumer and the Yellow River valley in China and the Norte Chico People in South America. That's that's the beginning of the subject of history and we're looking at how did people create the first civilizations as they began to settle down and be able to live in a place. How did that happen? What contributed to them being able to do that and so yeah, we always start there in history and then as we go along, it includes the story of human beings, nations, cities, especially the great figures in history the heroes, the even the villains civilians to definitely but we learn about those people who somehow contributed and made a difference in the world whether good or bad. And I think we look at those things because it teaches us lessons for now. It's important to look back so that we can be educated for our lives now. Right right now, we are living at a point in history. We're making history were part of that whole subject, and if we study history, we can study all of the things that led up to. Now we can see this progression and some of its progress, and some of it is regression. We human societies tend to go through these cycles and there's Warren Destruction, and there's also building in great art and looking at all of this together is the subject of history I think that's one of the really interesting things that I have noticed as I've taught my kids history. I think a lot of people believe that we started with almost nothing in the history of the world, and then we little by little built up to this point that we have the Internet and technology and invention, and actually if you look back in history, my kids were amazed when we were studying ancient Greece and ancient Rome and they were saying if they just had the internet, they probably had pretty much what we have today. Mom they were a pre industrial society they had factories so anciently. They were very much like we are, and then it collapsed. Yeah. Followed Rome even before the Roman Empire the Mojo Daro people in India where at the same level that Rome was, but you know thousand years earlier. So it has happened over and over through history. So it's really interesting. One of the things that we learned from that is hey. Next year tomorrow who knows we could be reverting back in the exact same way that they did we are not immune in any way. And it hasn't just progressed and progressed and progressed. It has gone through cycles of change over time, and so there are lessons all along the way if we learn history in that Lens. and. Partly for that reason, Karen that that we can see progression and we can see cycles partly for that reason, we study history in order, and partly for the reason, we already talked about that it's important to have context you need to understand. Things that are going on at the same time in history you need to understand that this person came before that person that this war led to this event. Those progressions are important in history. So to teach it in order, I think vital.
Hurricane Laura headed for category 4 'life-threatening' storm, says NWS
"Say Hurricane Laura is rapidly intensifying and will become a catastrophic category for hurricane Before landfall. Now that storm churning toward Texas and Louisiana gathering wind and water that Sora lt's over much of the Gulf of Mexico, ABC senior meteorologist Rob Marciano is in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Ancient Tennessee River floods hold a warning for the future
"In eighteen sixty seven after several days of rain the Tennessee River surged over its banks and water rushed in Chattanooga Tennessee. The devastating flood remains the worst in the rivers history since recordkeeping began. But Lisa Davis of the University of Alabama, his digging in the dirt and finding evidence of even larger floods in the more distant past when floodwaters recede, they leave behind minerals, and so we searched for these deposits and we date them and we build a chronology of events and in some cases were actually able to reconstruct with the height or the size of the flood was. Answer Research signed in northern. Alabama. Her team has found evidence of several Tennessee river floods larger than the flood of eighteen, sixty seven and she says, such events could happen again. As the climate warms extreme rainfall is growing more common in the Tennessee River valley. So Davis. Says it's important for planners to understand what they could be up against in the future that information can be used to figure out whether or not dams have been adequately designed has anything happened. That's bigger than what they have imagined not just in the past two centuries but over millennia

And this is from the Russian river and they've been at it since two thousand four, which gives them years of having. Contacts with the local vineyards and wineries. So they have good resources. Trader Joe's as you know. Price Advantages Basically they don't advertise they don't have to. have. A distributors go store to store trying to sell their wind getting the shelves. Everything's done a front. I think they pay for it upfront to I'm not always sure about every single deal. But I do know that that is what happens with these wines.

Whats that big bird
"Of coffee anymore. Today's story PTERODACTYL sightings. The PTERODACTYL is a flying reptile. They were thought to have died out at the end of the cassation period, but there have been sightings across north. America. Since Spanish first set foot on what today's Mexico pterodactyls were there on pictographs and discovered on the face of cliffs native. Americans. Spoke of a giant bird eight people in sketched their images on hides. But there have been a rash of sightings in modern times, the nineteen, sixty, a couple driving. Driving through California's Trinity National Forest reported seeing the so what a giant bread that they asked committed to have a wingspan of thirty feet later described it as resembling a pterodactyl may nineteen, sixty, one in New York state a businessman flying his private plane over the Hudson River valley claimed that he was buzzed by a large flying creature that he sat luck like a pterodactyl January nineteen, seventy-six Harlingen Texas Teens Jackie Davis. Tracy Lawson reported seeing a bird on the. The ground that stood five feet tall was dark in color with a ball head and face like gorillas. The sharp six inch long beak a subsequent investigation by their parents, uncovered tracks that had three toes and were eight inches across that same year. In San Antonio Texas three elementary school teachers teachers. Now saw what they described as a PTERODACTYL swooping low over their cars. As they drove. They said, it's Wingspan was between twenty and thirty feet and one of the. The teachers commented that glided through the air on huge bony wings like a bat, September nineteen, eighty, two loss. Fresno Texas, an ambulance driver named James Thomson was stopped while driving on highway one hundred by a sighting of a large bird like object flying low over the area. He described it as a black grace bird, but the rough texture. But no feathers, it had a twenty foot Wingspan Hump on the back of its head and almost no neck at all. All after consulting some books to identify the creature, he decided it most closely look like pterodactyl. There have been numerous pictures taken of flying reptiles. One such photo show six civil war union soldiers standing over a PTERODACTYL. They apparently shot down shortly after the photo was published experts, cleared it a fake however recently, that creator of the Phony Photo said, it was a replica of the real picture. He has since produced the original most recently twenty, sixteen, a man in.

He says, he was taking out the trash in the middle of the day when the creatures startled him, it flew from above house across the street and glided back to the ground. I only saw briefly those caught off guard by. By size and the screeching sounded made a sounded like an old movie dinosaur. He described the creature was flying with a wingspan of about twenty to thirty feet of wink. The
The Pandemic Cut Down Car Traffic. Why Not Air Pollution?
"So there was definitely one picture but I remember seeing a freeway in Los Angeles arguably the traffic capital of the United States and there were no cars. It was like empty for your way clear blue sky and now you came here on this podcast and you're taking that all away from me. Well actually the air was cleaner in Los Angeles in March. It was the longest stretch of cleaner that had been recorded in decades. And you know that's a big deal for la because there is not great. Sometimes there's high levels of ozone Which is a pollutant that sworn by all the that comes out of tail pipes and smokestacks and power plants? What it does is it. It mixes in the air ground level. You add some sunlight and you've got ozone and it's not good stuff it exacerbates respiratory and cardiovascular illness so it makes sense that everybody would be pretty psyched about cleaner air. Yeah and it seemed like that made sense right with all the lockdown and people staying at home. I mean they started asking the air regulators about that like Philip fine of the South Coast Air Quality Management district through a lot of pressure on us to come up with the answer that everyone wanted to hear which the is that the covid nineteen measures have cleaned the air and southern California. But here's the thing it was also really Ramey in. La During the same time and rain helps clear out the air so as the weather is dried out. Recently air quality has gotten worse again. I mean went back to the unhealthy. Category actually yeah. Okay so I guess when you think about. There was this forty percent reduction in traffic and only a fifteen or so decrease in ozone in lots of parts of the country. It's not nothing right like not much. Not A ain't nothin' yeah. It certainly helped some but you know believe it or not sound kind of strange cars are not. La's biggest source of pollution comes to the pollutants that make ozone And that's actually true in a lot of places in the US Which is fine told me that means what's happening. Now with reducing car traffic just enough read a lot of newspaper articles over the past couple weeks decided if only we can have people telecommute one day a week across the entire base in our air quality problems will be solved and unfortunately it's not that simple. That's because the big source in La is trucks A reason is because there's just a lot of shipping that comes through the ports of L. A. and Long Beach and they handle about thirty percent of the country's shipping container traffic and that gets moved around on trucks after it comes in so traffic. It didn't decrease as much as the car. Traffic did so that pollution was still being omitted. Okay so trucks are the problem in La. Becky would about places yet so other places have other pollution sources like Pittsburgh. We looked at Pittsburgh and ozone only felt by nine percent about between mid-march and the end of April and when I asked atmospheric chemists about this they were like the reason is coal. Oh the Col- cold. It's burned to make electricity primarily but also call. It's used to make steel right. The history of Pittsburgh is all about steel scar. Have some very active industrial sources near the city in this kind of at the University of Pittsburgh? Emily Elliott says Cole is really dirty work in closer proximity to the places that are generating power coal fired power plants in the Ohio River valley that contribute quite a bit to pollution. Okay Sup- Pittsburgh has coal. La Trucks anything else. I should know about. Yeah Houston has this thing with factories. Oh Right Rebecca Hersher. We've talked about that on the show before indeed. We have and for those who might not remember Houston has one of the largest concentrations of petrochemical facilities in the country so to see how ozone levels have changed their versus other places. That was an interesting question for us. And what we found. Is that those facilities. They mostly kept operating during the pandemic actually in fact a lot of them they make the raw materials for masks and gloves the PCP hospitals need so desperately right now. So I'm guessing that ozone levels decrease a lot in Houston exactly ozone decrease less in Houston than did in La okay so it sounds like industrial pollution versus pollution from our like. Private cars is a big deal. Are Scientists looking into that? Becky like how much industry plays into this. Yeah they are. And it's possible that the overall air chemistry has also changed when we remove cars from the picture which is kind of an intriguing idea like air pollution is kind of a soup of different chemicals and bits and that soup is different now. And there's something even more confusing that happens with that soup that Air Chemistry and this is really strange to stay with me. This is really strange. So say with me as actually sure. We've tagline so go ahead you're at home. Will we mention that stuff coming out of tail? Pipes and other sources is what makes ozone rates that stuff is nitrogen oxide so nitrogen. Oxides helped form ozone. But here's where it gets weird under some conditions you know. In the short term nitrogen oxides can break down ozone molecules
Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia
"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.

Well, this storm really is two sides. The winter blast side of it is an amazing situation in parts of Denver and up through the northern plains. This storm is deepening bombing out as we say. And so that's the the cold side of it. An interesting phenomenon Minneapolis this time is in the warm rain sector of this storm. They had the thick fog in Minneapolis today. Then there's the severe side of this storm that's in the southeast. So we're going to see a more severe thunderstorms today.
