"Fireworks displays are a staple for many 4th of July celebrations, but a hotter and drier climate in the west is making it too dangerous to set them off. So, more places are now switching to a less flammable alternative. Colorado public radio's Matt bloom has more. Consumers. Graham hill is sitting at a computer overlooking a big, grassy field in suburban Denver, where he's just finished setting up a small army of drones for takeoff. There's 20 to Zack, each about the size of toy cars with four propeller blades. Looking good over here on the map. They were arranged in a 5 by four grid on the ground, each fixed with a lightbulb that's currently flashing a bright blue color in unison. When they finished sinking together, they start keeping. Hill then presses the space bar on his laptop and they take off into the sky and perfect synchronization. Once they're about 50 feet up, their lights change to different colors of the rainbow and float around to form different shapes in midair. So we got like a diamond shape and then a circle shape. We're standing almost right under it. And so sometimes it can look like they're about to hit each other, but they're actually all about ten feet apart at all times. Hills, Colorado based company, higher UAV pro puts on drone shows all over the world. It's still a niche industry, but growing fast, hill says, communities from Colorado to California have hired his team to design patriotic shows to replace their traditional fireworks. They've gotten more requests than they could handle this year from places compared about fire danger from Idaho to New Mexico to Texas. As soon as we turned on our website and started advertising and putting a couple of videos out there, and we probably had like 304 hundred requests for the 4th of July. The show's only last about 15 minutes due to limited battery life. Jeremy gross, an event coordinator with the town of Vale, says they spent about a $100,000 on this year's show. Three times more than fireworks would cost. It does take a commitment from the communities that are making this change to step up to the plate and spend that money to reduce the risk and provide a new and creative experience. They're worth it gross says because they're less likely to start a catastrophic wildfire. And less prone to last minute cancellations due to high fire danger. Plus, they can make formations that people likely haven't seen before. You can put an eagle in the sky and the eagle actually flaps its wings. You know, the old glory when you put the flag up, it waves, and it moves and can transition. Sometimes, though, are sticking with traditional fireworks, but with additional safety precautions. Estes park on the outskirts of Rocky Mountain national park, shooting their fireworks over a large Lake as a safety measure, says town spokeswoman Kate rush. I feel lucky that we have a large body of water that that's a big deal for us

They did coffee servicing for large companies throughout New Haven. And it's funny that I didn't, this is about how much coffee the average person drinks. I did start drinking coffee until I got into radio. I never had a cup in my life. And then I got my first job like was 19 in college, and I had to do morning drive and I said, I better start drinking coffee. Everyone around here seems to be drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. So I just, I took those things up. You know, I just finally took it up and been drinking coffee and enjoying it ever since. How much coffee do you think the average person consumes in a day? In a day. In a day, the average coffee drinker in America. Okay, I'm going to go with three cups. 3.4. That's pretty good. Yeah. I think I'm right on that. I'm right on about the 3.4. Because sometimes I don't finish all of the cup if it gets a little bit. That sounds about. I mean, what's a cup? Because that's true. A cup, I think, is generally considered a ounces. Probably drink more than three cups if we're talking 8 ounces. Oh, is that right? Yeah. My wife, I make coffee. I make coffee for us on Saturday and Sunday mornings. And I will make what is 6 cups. And she says, that's not enough. So I'm making 8 cups. She comes down. I drink like maybe four or 5 ounces. And then I go back for more later on, you know, that way it's hot. I drink a bucket at a time. That's what she does. What's up with that? Because you can't get through a bucket without it turning cold, especially if you make it like punch. No, I slam it. You slam it? That first one? Yeah. Our next door neighbor is when I was like 7 or 8 years old. I don't know why I remember this. The lanes, they had a percolator and their house always smelled so good. Do they even make those anymore? So yeah, we did. We looked it up and they do make them and what you had was you had the coffee was in the basket. It was not had no filter. It had a basket on the top of it, and that would act as a filter. Then you had a long tube that would go to the bottom. And it would boil and it would force that coffee that hot water up into the basket is. And then that's why you would see that on the top of the percolate. A little glass. The little glass thing. That's how you're going to have one. Well, how come they don't make those anymore? They do. You can get them on. I Googled best percolator money can buy. And bob, I've got exciting news. There's an L.L.Bean percolator. That gets almost 5 full stars. That's only 69 95.

They always drink instant coffee. But what I would visit, they would break out, they would break out the percolator 'cause that's how your new company had come over. This is a new I didn't like instant coffee. Yeah. You know, I don't think I've ever had instant coffee. Oh, you've never. I don't think I'd like it. No. I don't think you would like it either. I mean, that's a given. I want this percolator. Maybe I could ask for one for Christmas. I think this L.L.Bean one, because you like L.L.Bean. And stainless steel, and it's very old school, I'll show you a picture of it. It's very old school looking. I just remember the next door neighbors, their house always smelled so great from that percolator thing. I keep instant coffee and instant espresso in the house because I bake with it. And one day, when I was out of every other kind of caffeine, I thought, how bad can this be? Real bad. Is it like the Tang of coffee? Yeah, it can be real, real bad. Oh yeah, I like that I'm looking at the percolator thing there. That's your L.L.Bean. Yeah, very cool. You can make coffee flavored ice icing for cake with instant coffee. I would like a couple of like a pinch or a half teaspoon of espresso powder in a chocolate cake, you don't taste the espresso, but it gives the cake a kick. Is that right? And it also is good for making a marinade for steak or London broil. A coffee marinade. I'm gonna get that L.L.Bean one. My wife will argue with me over it. I think you should, it's a 14 cup percolator, so that's 11 for her. Love for you. I don't know why she does that. The mugs that she has, and she has to have a mug wherever we go.

Would you drive around in it? A Mercedes used by Adolf Hitler during World War II is up for auction this month in Arizona. It's a 1939 Mercedes and I don't know what the price is. I don't know what the condition is. I would guess the condition is pretty good. What would you do if you had all the money in the world? To quote another movie, what would you do with Hitler's Mercedes Benz? I don't want Hitler's Mercedes Benz. The juju on that. I know. I don't want that. I don't want that either. I don't think. I guess if you bought it and you were a World War II history buff or something, you could need it to a museum to a museum, but wouldn't it just have the worst vibes ever? As you're walking by it in a museum, it's just everything connected to that horrible man..

"I wanted to see what it was like to be mugged by a monkey. This is intrepid. Author mary roach and she's not kidding about the monkey. I write nonfiction books. Most recently a book called fuzz when nature breaks the law. Mary has published a number of memorable stories for outside magazine over the years including my personal favourite about shrinking human heads. She is known for her humorous deep dives into obscure topics in extremely concise book. Titles perhaps you've heard of some of them stiff which offers a body of evidence about cadavers gulp in which he explores our digestive system and bonk about sex to report her new book furs. She spent a lot of time seeking out places where animals have a habit of breaking human laws on a trip to northern india. She devised a plan to entrap. Some especially brash. Macaque monkeys into robbing her. So unlike i head up with a bag of bananas. I know it's gonna get mugged but i also wanted to see them up close. I mean people love to be up close to animals. i mean. that's the horrible irony. is that so often. These animals deaths are born out of this love that we have in his desire to be close to them and we can't seem to stop ourselves for today's episode outside podcast producer and former park ranger. Merrin larson puts her flat hat back on to talk to mary about what happens. When the planet's fuzzier creatures refused to fall through the summer after college. I was a trail had ranger Rocky mountain national park in colorado where. I spent most of my time in a weird outfit telling tourists to stop trying to pet wild animals. There was the guy who was determined to feed his trail. Mix to the chipmunks. Until i told him that they can carry rabies and the person who showed us an up close and personal picture. He'd snapped of a huge elk. Just seconds before it charged him or the family who left an entire roasted chicken out at their campsite because they wanted to see a bear. So when i called up mary to talk about her book we quickly bonded over our shared history of wildlife encounters in small colorado mountain towns. Tell me how you ended up in aspen lurking around near trash containers at like three thirty in the morning. Well i had been speaking with this researcher named stuart brick. He's the guy who wrote the paper literally wrote the paper. On bears breaking into minivans in yosemite he had already completed some studies in aspen and a couple of other places in colorado. And i said would you go back there with me. Just got to see a bear in action. So i said the alarms for three thirty three in the morning. And just see. What's going on. And i was thinking where. What are the odds on any given night. That you're gonna find a bear when you wanna see a bear. That's not easy to do but in aspen. It is like we pulled up to this area where there's a row of restaurants and we look down this alley and there's a big white trash bag ripped open stuff spilling out like we obviously surprised a bear in the middle of its depredations as they say and i said oh we missed the of. Let's just pull over here. It'll be back and within three minutes. The bear comes lumbering back and sort of looks at us and kind of thinks okay. They don't seem like a threat and goes back to. It's i have to say really tasty looking food scraps. But while mary was delighted to see this bear appear as if on command. Her companion was less enthused to witness the animal. Tearing into a trash bag that had been improperly secured by restaurant workers stewart brick is a really saw spoken. You know not you. Don't see him gesturing wildly telling stories. He's a pretty mellow guy but he sees the bag and he's like really are fucking kidding me. he's he is just apoplectic because so much money and so much. Effort has gone into trying to get people to understand the consequences here and by consequences. She means for the bears not for the humans and that's because bears alleged crimes don't often stop at swiping leftovers in fact that's usually just the start. Mary says that breaking into garbage bins is a gateway drug for breaking into houses. You get a bear. That's habituated to humans and human food The bear is gonna keep coming back in a certain point. A humid's gonna get injured one way or another not like an attack but just surprise the bear. The bear runs past him swipes at him which had happened a couple of weeks before i got there and that bears gonna get put down destroyed killed bears once they have a record of human encounters tend to have high rates of recidivism and while aspen has fairly low rates of human on human crime. It's a hot spot for her sign. Malfeasance it was only an aspirin a couple of days. And i was thinking with my job. I'm always showing up somewhere and wanting something to happen like on cue. Which is ridiculous. And i thought the second would be a bear break in today but in fact colorado parks and wildlife guy. Curtis tash was called out. Stewart and i went along with him in his truck. Way up into the hills. This is a very nice neighborhood. Big house of like spills down the hill. Three layers multiple decks. They only person there at the time is the caretaker of the house. The family was out of town so we show up and she takes us down to the bottom deck which goes into a bedroom. The screen door is you can just pushed in and amazingly the white kind of cushy not shag but very lush carpeting. There's no no footprints no tracks. It's a very clean bear and the bear goes up the stairs to the kitchen doesn't knock over anything on the way kind of remarkable gets to the kitchen and then opens up the refrigerator and that's when it gets a bit messy. There is cottage cheese ice cream containers. Honey jar broken. The honey was classic. Just classic essentially bears are going to be bears. This is one of mary's big points. In fuzz animals are not breaking our laws just to spite us or because are hardened criminals. They're doing it because shocking as this may seem to some humans our rules don't apply to them if hungry bear whose historic berry foraging habitat has been slowly eroded by multi-storey mountainside homes learns that those homes to our sources of food. It will take up trespassing and yet the fact that the bear has no idea. It's doing something it shouldn't doesn't stop us from punishing it. Though as mary points out in many jurisdictions the first step is to get the animal away from the crime scene and to give it another chance to take them out put them back in the wilderness and hope that they don't return. Relocation is often plan a but it's far from a sure bet. Bears are extremely good at finding their way back. They have been known to travel more than a hundred miles and swim large distances. In order to return to their home turf. It sometimes works with a with a sub adult. You know younger. Bear for whom it hasn't really become a habit so if you get to a bear early on in its criminal career and i'm using quotes around criminal because they're just bears being bears but if it's a young bear sometimes that.

The weather's seems to be right at the top of the list. we still have those wildfires. Wildfires raging out west. Goodness say they showed no signs of ending and The us forest service last week announced that all twenty million acres twenty million acres of california's national forest will stay close to all recreational use including camping until at least the seventeenth of september. And those people that are caught that decide they just can't resist it and they're gonna camp anyway. We're anyway not supposed to camp. There is a five thousand dollar fine for doing that. These wildfires are an issue. Still in california and oregon idaho and montana and many other places in in minnesota this been a fierce battle for wildfires. is that state has had drought conditions and they did get some rain a little bit cooler weather this past week. So they're lucky there in minnesota because now it didn't diminish the forty five percent. I mean they've been able with the help of nature rain. And that was all in the Beautiful superior national forest in minnesota so much a much needed relief up there. And that's good but did you see about isle royale. Yeah they even had a fire there. Perhaps the most remote national park in america This island park in the middle of lake michigan. Way north near the up They had their thinking that one got started by lightning right but in last we heard they had it not quite half contained but even up there that drought up in the middle of a lake. Michigan that's I'm glad it wasn't started by careless campers or people. Hey there was a tragic story this past week In an area that is where we camp a lot which is in northern michigan Along the rifle river. We've got some Private land that we're allowed to camp on their some friends and family members owned and we have been there for every year several times but just a tragic story along the rifle avic campground there. The owner of campground ask the michigan department of natural resources. If he could clear out a bunch of the dead debris you know how the river in the wintertime all those trees accumulate and he was told he couldn't and lo and behold premed student a camper camper at camp ground drowned a big thing to do there in the rifle and many other rivers around the country issue to you put an inner tube in the current take you down and he got caught up in in the current and it Pushed him into one of these areas. Where all these dead trees that the state would not let this guy clear out and any drown. He drowned and Twenty seven year old kid for send the current cotton that logjams. that's terrible. There are times when things need to be cleared out. You can't leave a mess like that. Probably he was getting out of his canoe and the current or else he was just starting out wasn't familiar with two beaner. Canoes or the campground is furious at the state for not letting him clear that jam. And of course the state They were contacted by the media and they said well logjams are an important part of wildlife habitat and then they said well. The guy could've asked for a permit while he he says he did ask and they told him he couldn't do it. So at any rate this is a sad story and Even reminder something is easy as inner tubing can be fraught with danger times. This is common sense sometimes. Common sense esta prevail. Well the rv industry holy cow it is still on a tear and it continues to to its own horn about that. New industry analysis is out and is predicting that get this that the rv market the industry is going to grow by eight point. Eight eight billion dollars. Eight point eight billion dollars between now and twenty twenty-five in north america that is incredible And they say what they're noticing is different. Generations now are embracing the rv lifestyle. It's all made possible by remote working new technology But it's pretty amazing and code people working out of their home and then they're saying hey this let's go see travel the country and work out of an rv. I just hope that the industry realizes that all these. Rv's they're selling. We need more campgrounds. We need more campgrounds and We need an educational system that the industry needs to get behind to teach people when they boondock boondock responsibly. So it's it's important. What else is in the news. Chip shortage the cia chip shortage. It's hard to get rising chip short. How fast shortage. It's getting harder to get a talk but a truck for a lot of people that want that truck dough whole around their fifth wheel trailer travel trailer So they're saying that. Many of the north american factories have to close again. The ad motive truck factories because the the supply chain remains broken. They can't get the chips they need. They're blaming this that the delta variant is of covert is hitting southeast asia and that the chip factories there are closing and that just has a ripple effect and the parts shortages as we've been reporting here for months now been crippling the rv industry contributing to multi year weights sometimes on new unit. So no sign of that. Getting better quick. We got to build a factory here to make those chips. I think they are trying to do that.

"It seems like he is while maybe not necessarily embodying. The qualities of like a ozzy or a debate that you might think even though he mentions them in the bio. I think that he's gonna bring that sort of floppy-haired positively to things which i think also plays into his type as well. Right he's twenty. I think we talked about this with girish. Like the the naivety that can be associated with you. I could imagine that zander's play into that as well and maybe play a bit of that nursery. When i asked him. What will people underestimate in you. Most you said he has a ferocity for learning. And so maybe he'll be able to show more of that bookish nece but i also see him standing out there russell hand style right like smile as wide as the jungle with his arms open. Being like i love this right now. Crawl remands eat of my flesh. I care not. That'd be wild too much about the ants in fiji. No i mean. I'm trying to remember big brother house The ants seemed like more of a problem. Well i'm trying to remember. I feel like millennials versus genetics. Right there was that one. Yeah but i think those were fire ants less just like the the nuisance of ants crawling over people. I agree though. If you're talking about like one of these pet peeves is not like the other between monsoons. And i don't know thunderstorms and ants. Ants has got to be getting the bronze they are right. I think. I don't think anyone's like i really don't want those ants out there. Those are the worst. So i do think that there is a little bit of a difference between the two twenty year old guys that we've talked about in zander and j. d. where i feel like that. J d The key is talking about how like. Oh think i'm just like you know This dumb guy. Who doesn't know anything. But i actually do know out of stuff where zander is very concerned about people thinking that he's like douche and then That he actually does know stuff. And i feel like it's a little bit of a different first impression. That where j. de-icing like yeah. I have this like really positive first impression. And i'm going to be able to use that to get over on unsuspecting people and with zander a negative first impression. So it's also. I think a really interesting difference of show and tell you know jd. We talked a lot about how in his bio. He spoke a lot about all the different people that he interacted with right. He's that seen from mean girls where he's talking about talking with each one of the lunch tables and all the clip clicks adjusting himself and zander speaks very highly in his bio in particular about like everything he knows how to do again Speaking about the knowledge stuff. What is something we would never know from looking at you to your plate rocky says i love the pursuit of knowledge and experience. I could spend hours discussing the genius of richard. Serra's commission for the nyc irs building or. How mandarin enables the mind to think more creatively or the lab. I just finished on. Rendering an image of the crab nebula using doppler shifting kepler's third law or an algorithm for my latest apps steed widget or the golden warmth of the sun is a crest the horizon on a cold morning in rocky mountain national park or meandering through the crowded bazaars of western china three peterman catalog. Exactly as you know. Maybe he'll start to craft. The was urban something era. Rain's coming down but i think that it's a difference between the two whereas jd. I think is more so to sit back into pocket and be like i know how i'm perceived but i have the natural social skills i think to sort of assimilate i think zander's more of the person to be like i know what you think may but i'm not that and let me tell you why which i think might steelwork comes across as a bit too much considering what he wrote in his bio okay. Let's go.

But that's the role of the press. The one the only it's miles bloom heart miles. How are we this morning. All of the national park service sites including rocky mountain national park is now requiring math when you are indoor wars But more importantly in crowded outdoor areas. And i think that's the thing that's most significant because in my story as i pointed out during the bugling season and you know is very very popular and at the shuttle bus stops There's a lot of people and at some overlooked and some trails. There's a lot of people congregated so it's gonna be interesting to see you know how they're going to deal with that because literally In september october when the when the l. correct going on there are people shoulder to shoulder jordan.

"I hate apple. There's always gonna be somebody like what's wrong with apple. I love my apple. Like the apple has defenders right. Like how do you build a brand where people go to bat for that brand as if you were a family member and then you have the samsung folks which they were talking about. Did bring a scan of those folks and they said the same thing and they said basically had the flip it was like the hatred of apple came out. It was good. Yeah apple apple. Blue something observer. It does what else found interesting about the study they did was it wasn't like there was apple fans and there was samsung fans right. There was apple fans and there was people who hated apple so the ones that bought samsung. They weren't doing it because they had brand loyalty towards samsung. They were buying it because they didn't want apple so think about like other brands like that has to be showing up in a lot other ways. Think about well actually brought up. Gary v a lot of that love gary v and there's a lot of people they hate the raw hustle of gary v. Doesn't it's not good or bad but it's like it's a flavor yeah Grant cartoons another great one. Yeah either love or you hate them. There's not really an in between it's not like oh i can just kind of i'm kind of miss about either. Nah yeah and i think that's a big of getting a brand rate is got to stand for something and you've got to have people that like what you stand for and people that don't like what you stand for but you've got to stand for something that's not right around. It's just yeah. How do you wanna show up. And what do you want to do with your brand now. And i it was. It was a very very fascinating study. Like i just found it so interesting that you know you've got people when they were talking about apple you've got people that will literally go to bat for the brand if we're talking crap. Yeah you've got people that like. Every time a product comes out. They go by the product just because that logos on it wait in line and all that stuff so i guess to to pose it back to the listener wonder is like how do you want to be identified with your brand and think being very intentional with that before you may get too deep into things or start going in each direction. That's almost like a north star. That is internal like this this compass that you can have in define for yourself and choose like hey. This is how i want to show up. But also this is how i want people to identify with my brand in whatever i'm creating because i know and you know we all know that what we're creating isn't just to create some random crap out there like there's a purpose behind it yeah there's a ripple effect of what is that thing that we want to push a push out but like give to the world right and certain people will attach to and do something with Some people might buy burritos for you. People might share. You know what i mean. That's how loyal customers become a thing. That's why we sometimes get hate mail when we changed the intro of our podcast. It's actually love talking earlier. Layered in love. We were going to change our logo with our rebrand of our website. We're like we're gonna make small tweaks she's like. I'm really attached to the logo change in too much so that might be one. We don't touch. We descend background a little. Bit to match okay. Okay believe we've got to be careful to not go too far away from the brand identity that people have associated s with right like people associated as certain brand and if we were to go and change the image changed the the intro. Get super serious on our podcast. Where we're just straight laced like perfect interviewers. Now people would probably check out. They'd be like i signed up for you know like adding ever going to happen. We are studying into warner's book on how to be a better interviewer be into never from extra jeep. You're just wondering yeah very true. So yeah what else. We got mad. Well another another thing. That i found interesting about that video was he was talking about. There's a lot of out there that are like well. I don't i don't do brands. I don't wear shirts with brands on it. I don't joe off logos. I don't do brands at all the brands in actually going straight up rocky national estes park shirt which is from the town got back from and this is a rocky mountain national park hat which is right on the head. Yesterday you had an estes park hat. Esther park brewery hat. Yes so we know where his loyalty lies in colorado collar out unbranded. Yeah well the the point that they were making those like even the people that go out there and say like i don't attach to brands. I don't like brands That's your brand. Yeah right your brand is somebody who doesn't want to be identified with brands and you are like you are the same as the people who do identify with brand except what you identify with is that you don't like to wear or publicized brands which is interesting. Because there's i don't know what it is but yeah. All of this stuff is happening in our customers. Our listeners or viewers minds that we should definitely be understanding thinking about at least being proactive. With like how do we want to put herself in the world. That's why we're like this website. We're getting redone right now. By studio one design. Greg mirrlees recommend those guys tell him we sent you. They also did our hustle and flow chart shirt logo today. Yeah the one that is wildly popular. Yes they You'll you'll love this this This whole thing. But it's gonna be an extension of us. It's going to be No more evergreen profits dot com. That's basically not really us yet. I still go there now because we haven't changed it over to go there when it's rebranded and you'll see the difference. Yeah bill see how. This is how we have been thinking through our brand. And we've hired someone greg and his team who understands our brand actually listens. Hi greg and so like it's really cool to have someone to help further our brand but also it's up to us to figure out like okay. Is that really how we wanna.

I was trying to find the previous outside and get gas when that was april of twenty. Eighteen was when we first had you on education. You must have been one of our. I guess i'm thinking one of the first episodes. So why don't you start with. How have you and your family been. And how has your transition because back then. I believe you were middle school teacher right correctly. That's see two thousand eighteen. I would have been here in colorado. Yes okay so what was that transition like though when you were as far as in the classroom to transitioning to being a professor even moving from the east coast to the mountain west. That's a really good question without like trying to be politically cordial to any listeners. Who are on the east coast. Yes big fans of the move out here to colorado. It's just an amazing state. We'll just say that. yes you know. Everybody's super nice except examples when you're driving on the highway you and you need to change lanes and you put on your directional people actually don't speed up two floors you off exit. So that's been a pleasant change shopping and other example you're at any store walmart target supermarket and you have one or two items you know and You're on a regular line. People people almost make you go in front of them. Go ahead go ahead. Yeah it was so that all those bits a little unnerving at first right mayo. what's going. We'll suspect yeah i can. I was from the east coast so it was like the running joke was like you know we're a witness relocation out here but now it's been great because like you know we could take get up for breakfast and go to rocky mountain national park and come back from lunch essentially So dramatic sisters and staycationing and three like outdoor culture. Here which is awesome and for the lockdown We were fortunate enough to be in a location. We were to stay safe and like door dash and all that and and car delivery but like were one of the few states. That got to seventy percent by july fourth for a vaccinations which goods so and then you know. University like many others online. I would say the. I guess if you're talking about moving from teaching middle school to teaching at the university level That was that was That was a little different. Because what i teach is. I teach masters student Know teachers basically master students and phd. Students but i also do teach undergraduates. Pre service teachers. And i teach that basically every semester. So it's really nice to imbue. We like you know. I know your style of teaching line. So if you that to teacher so they can do that in the field and it's always interesting. Will you work as speaker over zoom last semester. Your school so interesting to them like it out now. this is really true. This is what lots of teachers do. This sort of thing like they actually teach mike fast or they actually. This is real grades thing. I'm not just the looney or something you know. And there's a convincing right. There was a bit of convincing with that for some undergraduates. Until until the pandemic with my with my mom knows what google classroom ants right here like you know social emotional learning on the news right. Suddenly it's like way right in the forefront right so there's no doubt like why am i learning this or why this class because it was require course in content area classes. If you're a teacher why am i in this course. Well here's twine. Here are all these other forms of literacy right that you can learn that are enhanced with technology so I would say it was really exciting to To teach teachers. And i'm still teaching in the classroom aspects. Were interesting but i guess the most jarring for anybody who goes to academia is one of course a posture syndrome and two is all. It's remember to college is all that empty space during the day. It's not the class schedule of being a classroom teacher. Yes it's really different types of schedule. Full days off in the middle of the week. Sometimes i've the face to face. Teaching in the fall is a couple of hours a week but then again their service. There's all the committees sitting on The school the university and then all of course dissertation committees and then there's all the research and publication and suddenly all those side projects counted. Because i know you're involved a lot of these side projects you know. All those suddenly are be that counts at the university level. Oh i love that. I do all the side. It's like wow i can. I can write a book or i can do. Research about games. You know are all these things that already interests me and they count for my work. That became very exciting. But it's yeah. It's nice to have the free time i can go pick up my son from school or i can like you know. I can do random things sometimes during the day. If i need to but then again you're always on the clock out. It's always writing all the time you know and it's even worse than amplify chocolate by games and experiences. You know you can go to disneyland and like wow. This is really interesting. I can't stop thinking about this. So one of the things you just pointed out there and it might lead into what.

But in that aspect talking about the fact that under senate bill to seventeen these officers immediately would have lost their. There's a law enforcement certification in colorado. He says but in that aspect you can see where it makes sense for an agency that might not hold their supervisors or their employees to that type of standard. I wish it had never happened.

"Five thousand. Seven hundred fans every available seat for the four games was sold so the streak technically continued and is now at four hundred and fifteen consecutive games. You had broncos defensive lineman dramont jones saying last year was really weird. Yeah i think that's something. We can all agree with right. He went on to say. We got a piece of the fans a small capacity for a couple of games when we lost. I think that brought around down a little bit because you don't hear the fans screaming atucha. What they do for us is very important. We can all say we appreciate what broncos country does four so yes it is good these days. Isn't it to be a sports fan in colorado now on the consumer flipside of the adventurous activities scale. Don't know if you heard this or not but wanted to pass this information along. If you're thinking about making that mountain getaway. This as visitors turned away at rocky mountain national park because they didn't know about the reservation system well unfortunately just says ignorance is not a viable defense in a court of law. Neither is the lack of knowledge about the reservation system at rocky mountain national park. Well the scene at the beaver meadows entrance station over memorial day weekend. It was less than copacetic. This ccording to a piece out of the no in the denver post on friday the day rocky mountain national parks timed entry reservation system went into effect for the second season in a row park. Employees were forced to turn away people who didn't have the required reservation and some disappointed. Yeah they were more like disgruntled. Visitors had already waited an hour in line in a bumper to bumper backup. One guard told the no. We're going to get yelled at nonstop. The summer compare and contrast the screaming a broncos fans at empower field. Supposed to be no core guard in a guard shack up at rocky mountain national park. He said gonna be a nightmare. And i've already seen some pretty hostile interactions. There was one electronic road. Sign apparently intended to warn visitors. They should turn around turn back turn back if they didn't have reservations rather than wasting an hour in line but unfortunately the way in which it was worded well. It didn't spark the desired response. Let's just say it wasn't crystal. It's clarity apparently at flash three messages over and over permits full. Come back after three bear lake after six well. Needless to say many visitors where more than a little bit confused park superintendent darla sidell acknowledging that wait times at the beaver meadows entrance averaged more than an hour on saturday and sunday. This is when the weather was fairly good in a statement. darla said visitation was much less on sunday and money. Monday as the weather was cold and damp ams was kind of like a monsoon wasn't it and trail ridge road was closed both those days due to heavy snow for those who planned.

"A better job of getting rid of the unnecessary noise pollution. Vehicles that are overly Lyle motorcycles without must slurs. I mean stuff that's just not necessary. It's just away from people that peacock their way around the world for now. Freedom from pollution is only ever temporary. Are there any places left untouched by human noise? Bad news. They've all been touched by human sounds. It's just a matter of how long you can go between noise pollution events. Boundary waters of northern Minnesota. That canoe area wilderness up there. You can go quite a long time hours or maybe even a whole day, sometimes without noise pollution. That's really special. But like Rocky Mountain National Park, you think it's this wilderness area and you could be in some of the more popular parts of that park and you can't go more than 15 seconds when you certainly can't go during rush hour both morning and evening, more than a minute, a half to two minutes without an overflight, a jet landing into Denver International Airport. You know, the desert is a great place to find. Silence sometimes. But again over flights will get you eventually. It's just incredibly rare in the fact that I'm telling you, this will probably alert you to this for the rest of your life. So I'm apologizing right now. The more you start to pay attention, the more you realized everything we think is this grand outdoor experience is manipulated, controlled, touched by the human hands. It's almost as far away from that wilderness experience as being in a city park in some ways..

Do it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. But I'm not GonNa Really. WanNa talk about Salt Lake City that much. So I think. Can we just start in Dinosaur National Monument border of Utah and Colorado. So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. Incredible. It's actually two hundred, ten, thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, it's a national monument. It's not as big as a national park will actually it's a lot bigger than some national park. So the designation National Park is more Congressional and National Monument is Presidential Right? It doesn't determine the funding or the sides are valued visiting the site right? Exactly. So I have spent some time in Dinosaur National Monument but I've done exactly the opposite of the things that you've done. So tell me a little bit about your experience first of all. Yes. So we did is we stayed in an RV campsite outside of the park, but actually we're going to recommend that anyone doing this trip stays inside the park. It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, and so I think if you word of a reserve, the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. Dinosaur. National Monument. You would then be inside the park. It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. Monument, in Utah more in Dinosaur Colorado, they named the town after the monument. Okay and neither of those are all that large town as I am now I think the largest town in the area's vernal Utah, which a little further west than Johnson and actually we should mention that if you're into dinosaurs hopefully you are. If you're going to dinosaur national monument, there is actually a lovely museum in Vernal Utah Not a large museum, but you can see some velociraptor and things like that. So especially, if you're there with kids and I think you were traveling with two. That's that's someplace that I would recommend. We were on prevent a long drive from Bryce Canyon Up to Dinosaur National Monument, and so we drove to rural and it was we made sure to stop at some of those dinosaur statutes that are in town. We weren't unfortunately stay for the museum. I. Don't know if it was open actually right now a lot of museums here in two, thousand, twenty, nine open. It was great to see those the statues in town. If you like photo ops with giant roadside dinosaurs, you won't be disappointed on this road trip.
