Massive Sahara Desert Dust Cloud Reaches America's South
"A dust cloud across the ocean from the Sahara desert is reach the southeastern United States meteorologist meteorologist Allison Chinchar has this has made quite a long journey to get here and it's also very dense and that's been the key thing dust coming off of this area desert into areas of the United States is not uncommon but this is been particularly dense which is why you have such very cloudy and obscured skies people with asthma or other breathing problems are being instructed to monitor their local air quality and possibly limit outdoor
Saharan dust cloud cloaks U.S. Gulf Coast in haze
"If you're in the southeastern part of the country get ready for a dust cloud it was whipped up from the Sahara desert and is nearly four thousand miles long says CBS news meteorologist Jeff you're a deli this is not like a dust storm in the deep south west it's not quite as dense and it is more diffuse but it certainly can be seen as very hazy skies the thickest layer floats several thousand feet above the ground but some of that dust tends to settle down to the ground thus it can be harmful to people who have breathing
Saharan Dust Cloud Arrives At The U.S. Gulf Coast, Bringing Haze
"It's a journey. That's a weeks and spend thousands of miles across an ocean floating on currents of air today, a massive cloud of dust from the Sahara desert arrives in the southeastern United States to walk us through this meteorological phenomenon. We are joined by Professor Marshall Shepherd. The Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of Georgia welcome. Thank you for having me okay now. I've seen the satellite images, but. But tell us what it's GonNa. Look like from the ground as this wave of dust from the Sahara arrives in the United States. You know we give these things every year and some are bigger than others. These are this year quite large and so I think that's why it's garnering much attention. Typically you lose the blue sky for more hazy Milky Sky. You tend to see more vivid sunsets and sunrises because. Because of the scattering properties of the dust and interacting with the sunlight, so those are sort of the optical effects, but I think people that suffer from allergy to dust or particular matter, they actually might not find it so amusing. They may have some health issues Why is it so much bigger this year than normal? I think one thing that happened this year are e.. Is that that dust in the? The Hell region in parts of Africa sat there, and just collected because the the wind system this African easterly jet meteorologist talk about it took a bit longer to kind of get itself going, and once it gets going, you can belch and Burp that dust out into the Atlantic, and that's what we're seeing now. Because there was somewhat of a delay, there was a lot more desk sitting there the build up. All right so pros you said good sunrises and sunsets, cons, people who have health problems might find that the respiratory problems are worse. What else is this dust system? GonNa do I mean on the whole is a good thing or a bad thing you know one of the things is an earth scientist. The Earth is so connected, and this is just another example so these dust storms they actually can fertilize the oceans in parts of Amazonia. They're carrying things that really help those ecosystems. Ecosystems but on the flip side of that there's been studies recently say they can actually carry pathogens as well so when you think about Mosquitos as a vector born disease carrier some argued that these dust storms can be vectors, they can carry pathogens another perhaps positive however is that the dust? If there were to be a hurricane forming out over the Atlantic hurricanes don't like the dust. If the dust gets into those forming systems, they can weaken those storms quite a bit. How much? Much bigger. Is this one than what we would see in a typical year? You know it's interesting. I saw a colleague tweet scale. They were using some data from NASA NASA Sir several satellites up monitoring air, quality and air constituents, and literally this event was off the chart. It wasn't even the same type of event. It was just so far off the plot scale, and so four people who study atmospheric science like you is a moment totally nerd out and like remember where you. You were when the Great Sahara Dust of two thousand twenty came across the Atlantic I th I think it is I I've seen some sort of very hyperbolic terms like the Godzillas dust storm. Those types of things I don't i. don't tend to like us such hyperbole when I talk about these things, but it is an anomaly event. My good friend and colleague Tom Gill at the University of Texas El. Paso is an expert on dust storms I know he's geeking out on this. I hosted a podcast call, weather, geeks or the weather channel, and we use the term geeking out. I'm certain it. Scientists like Tom. Gillard geeking out over this dust storm. Marshall Shepherd is the Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of and former president of the American meteorological. Society thanks for talking with us about this monster dust storm. Thank you for having me.
Massive Sahara desert dust plume closing in on the United States
"A dust plume from Africa will affect weather here this week these plumes begin in the Sahara desert and blow all the way across the Atlantic Ocean we have really strong winds over there sometimes that pick up the dry air and topsoil of the desert and raise them about five thousand to twenty thousand feet in the atmosphere meteorologist Amanda Holley of news channel eight in Tampa says the winds that carry the plumes also serve to tear apart any storms that might try to develop in the Atlantic another benefit of the symptoms we should see more colorful sunrises and sunsets over the next few

Billions could face temperatures inhospitable to life in the next 50 years, study finds
"A new study shows climate change could cause more than three billion people to live in temperatures in hospitable to human life by twenty seventy published by the National Academy of sciences it finds that most humans have lived in places with average annual temperatures between fifty one and fifty nine degrees Fahrenheit in the next fifty years a third of the global population could live think I met averaging between eighty four and eighty six degrees rarely seen outside of the Sahara desert those temperatures it could nearly cover twenty percent of the planet by twenty
Tips for Indoor Watering in the Winter
"Growers for generation growing plants. Indoors in a home is treacherous. Duty in a way You want to go back through it. Integrate House with with Perot's in charge. Plants are grown by the hundreds of thousands indoors. When it comes to our homes they are as as I've learned in reading drier than just Sahara desert as far as humidity is concerned. So if you can increase the humidity plant or plants. That's good if you water. Even to the extent you lift a little planner big plan hopefully not too big Senate in the water in the sink over the top of the pot wait till acquits bubbling then take it out centered on a trainer and then back into its position so you know it has been watered but you know then you're not GonNa do it again for a week or ten days. Okay you you just need is most easily done thing with plants is to kill them indoors from too much love. Yeah you have to. You have to let them drive. We had that rubber tree. We had a picture of three weeks or so ago. I think that's the kind of thing that was happening there. being loved too much maybe have been a problem. Then there are well. Cold water humidifiers. They're used mostly in baby situations and so on. But if you have a room or an area you can set up that humidifier and keep the humidity high so that you don't even have to water as often as we just spoke sixteen hours of a bold sunshine. So it'll be in other words lated If you have anything from African violets too big old other plants give them at least sixteen hours of light per day now. Part of that is going to be from the Sun but right now it's it's not even bright out until seven ish and then it's going to be dark by five thirty six. Leave the lights on in that room or that area of the room and caused the plant to continue to so to speak grow for a sixteen hour day that way. They're going to be doing something. That's more or less normal. The turning of the plants. I just spoke with Carolyn on the spins attorney. Orchids so it grows straight up Hit I I remember writing the paper several times for the professor before I got it right. But you you have to understand. That light has to be available for plants. Light can also be detract because if you leave them all turned toward the window in one position for a given period of time bill grow toward the window. And that's because the sun shortens the
New green technology generates electricity 'out of thin air'
"Engineers and microbiologists have collaborated to invent a device that generates electricity out of literally thin air. They call this incredible bit of Tech. The Air Jen relies on tiny strands of protein. Farmed from bacteria these so-called Protein Nana wires absorb trace amounts of humidity in the air. I'm produced Electricity of the moment. The Air Jen compiler only small electronic devices. But it's inventors from the University of Massachusetts Amherst have big plans to scale it up Phil. Sansom spoke to one of them. Dirt lovely to find out how it works. We've developed a new type of sustainable. Electricity Production. Don't require sunlight. We don't require wind. We can make power twenty four seven from the humidity in air. I gotta be honest. It sounds like science fiction. I know and that's was our initial two. We spent many months trying to discredit the idea. But it all checks out an remarkably. We can make electricity literally from thin air. So how does it work? It's very simple device with two electrodes and in a new type of electric material called Protein Anna wires and those wires absorb moisture from the air and generate a voltage and current. What am I picturing here? Are there to bits of metal and then something in between them. That's correct basically a sandwich with the protein and wires in between two electrodes. What is a protein nano? Wire it is a filament. Three nanometers diameter ten to twenty microns. Long comprised of protein that we produce with a microorganism called Gio b-actor Ju- backers a common constituent of soils and sediments. It produces those wires to make electrical connections with its environment. So it's little molecules that are around the edge of this bacteria little molecules produced inside the bacteria. It assembles them into the wireless. The wire is produced. It pushes it out of the cell so the cell looks hairy. Basically there has hairs extending all from it. Those are the protein in wires are you. Are you farming these bacteria and then shaving them like sheep absolutely? That's exactly what we're doing. How physically do you deal with them? Because they must be too small to tweezers off right absolutely. But it's quite a simple process. We throw them into a blender which will share the wires off of the cell and then we collect the wires. Ana filter and so. How many do you get at once? Billions and billions. Of course they're so small it's only micrograms from a relatively large number of microbes. Wow and then you attach them to the metal actually We just suspend them in water. Put trump that water on the electrode and let the water trail once you've done that. What's the point of all this? What are they doing once? They're actually on the electrode they start making electrcity ity. I mean this was very surprising result to us. We were actually working with the protein and wires to make wearable electric sensors and then even without applying any electricity to this system generating electricity itself. This was almost an accidental discovery. Absolutely serendipitous so do. Do you know how it works. Then we think we know which is long as it works okay. Of course we certainly are trying to uncover more of the basic mechanisms and what we do know so far. Is that film of the protein? Wires absorbs moisture from the atmosphere in creates a gradient of water because only the top is exposed to the atmosphere. And then how does that water then translate into electric charge? The protean wires have charges associated with them and are exchanging protons. So it's basically setting up a gradient of protons within that film. So is the cool part. How tiny these wires are or is it the way that the charges work on the wires themselves. I think it's both you need to have tiny wires with tiny pores in between the wires but they also have to have this charge in order to get the voltage gradient. And how much electricity can you actually get out right now? We're making small amounts of power and the reason for that is the initial devices. Were quite small. This was because we could not produce a large quantity of wires with Chey b-actor. We've now constructed a new microbe. A strain of e-coli which is very easy to grow can be grown in large quantities so we can mass produce the wires and once. They're mass produce. What's the potential? How power can you get out of this? Everything did I'm going to say next is theoretical because we've only made the small devices but with continued scaling that device say the size of a refrigerator could in theory generate enough electrical power to power say small home and doesn't matter if you're in a really really humid. Do you have to be in the rainforest for example? No that is another fantastic part of this process. It can work over wide range of humidity say even as low as you would find in the Sahara desert energy from thin air. Just sounds touchdown. Believable doesn't it. That was lovely from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. And you can read about their Jen. If you're so inclined it's published this week in the journal Nature

Tips for Indoor Plant Care in the Winter
"Cultivating successful growers for generation. Okay Indoor plant-care. Now's the time we talked about a little bit last week. About over watering and light considerations but Now's the time well. Now is the TIME ARC. It's time to not fertilize but consider the moisture levels and the. I started that way because the day length is increasing thankfully the brightness of the day. We're waiting on yet but plants. Indoor plants are indeed starting to grow a little bit with the light factors and so on temperature in the home. And I'm watching several of mine that are now putting on new growth. Well I'm going to tip. Trim a little of that so they don't go too wild but I'm not going to fertilize I'm going to just simply keep them moist and growing until well middle to late March now. If they then need a boost in growth I will add some fertilizer water and I usually do it in a water. Soluble Fertilizer. I want well. I grow them. I put them on the porch and the patio My house gets a little crowded winter. People have known I'm nuts for a long time it's not a greenhouse but but it's actually any hope you check the health of the plant and this business a watering We spoke I think three weeks ago about the rubber tree showing some bad leaves. Losing leaves at the bottom Let's go with the consideration that almost all indoor plants are of tropical origin. Our homes are not the tropics. Our homes are dryer than the Sahara desert. And so on and then there is this business and I always go back to aunt had a and had a taught children to water plants and growing little seeds in a cup and so on and Hattie could encourage them to water but she did not know when to tell them to stop so that they would flood the plant in the little pot or whatever. The case was up and died. Well that can discourage young gardener. So we don't want that to happen when you water and indoor plant you can do either of several things. I prefer to use saucers. That are big enough to hold pot deep enough that I can put a layer of gravel in the bottom of that and I can water then let the excess rundown into that container. I may leave. That water depends on how much I've put on if I don't want it to come out of the top and spoil the carpeting or whatever but You want the water. Excess to move through the pot and out under it now. The water that then is under it and in the gravel will dissipate in terms of just simply Well Mother Nature takes care of drying those things up as that happens the moisture moves up through the plants and that is more like tropical situation where there is moisture in the air but not excessive in the soil. Now one thing that I never think about when I put him in. I guess Fred thinks about it. Keep it out of draft. Yes indeed You have to be very careful. Now I have I have stopped puddings implants near the back door because I have a tendency go out there and chase squirrels or the deer Right right here in town. Fat Little squirrels but anyhow When I opened that door I tend to leave it open. Bang on pot to get rid of the deer or whatever. Well there's lot of cold air. Okay I'll take a selfie. Thank you yes but at the same time a lot of cold air comes in and plants of the tropical nature can handle down to forty degrees Okay but it's still a shock to them so if you keep them out of the draft then as far as I will boy my houses oriented. I have window south. I'm
20 Minutes With Brian Keane
"So high Brian. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much for taking the time to speak to me today. How you doing? I'm doing amazing. Thank you so much for having. I'm really looking forward to this conversation. No aures thank you again brought. If you could start off just giving us an introduction to yourself yeah so my name is Brian ranking ranking fitness online. And I'm a former primary. School teacher turned fitness entrepreneur effectively. So to cut a long story short. I was a primary school teacher in London for four years and for two of those years I worked as a personal trainer nighttime walking in a gym with people looking to lose weight get fit or get stronger etc and then it's thousand fourteen. I moved back home him to the west of Ireland where I currently live and set up a one to one personal training business and then over the space of eighteen months two years of living full time at home in order to kind of match the supply and demand because of the amount of people that were coming to me for personal training. I moved my business online and over the last name. Since two thousand fifteen I've been primarily online with the exception of a couple of books books that I rise in the appearances that ideal person in terms of speaking everything else in the fitness ramble. My business is on line. Two programs one a sport specific the other is pure fitness Pacific. Civic and now I just spend my days talking to people like you and working with my online client doing some talks around the world that to kind of communicate with some awesome people. Yeah I've got a pretty awesome lifestyle per minute so long. No definitely greats ahead obviously as well with your podcast. That's another great resource for anyone that wants to find out more about what Bryant Definitely Chatham. We'll talk more about that throughout the podcast. First thing on the touchdown Brian McKnight's obviously you saw your other fitness industry as you said is a PT and did some fitness modeling now use of transitions since doing ultra endurance events. As well what's changed in your own way. You approach your fitness to not to want to make a massive lead so one of the things that I generally always advise people with fitness whether your couch to five K.. An absolute beginner. You've never step foot in the gym or ever done a workout or somebody. That's a near professional athlete or professional professional athletes and their life. If is training you always need to have a goal that you're setting in working towards and I'm the exact same with fitness and in two thousand and end fourteen. I started competing in fitness modeling. Embody I believe so stepping onstage and the end of two thousand fourteen I won a pro card fitness. Molly was basically just means that you can compete for more money and in two thousand and fifteen. I was preparing for the World Championships in Las Vegas and a few months prior to that my daughter was born and I remember having this moment where I was getting ready for a show. I couldn't form sentences in my head. Hey I'm so pleased and just hired all the time I remember thinking I'm going to be terrible dad if I keep doing this man. I made that decision there and then that I would do that show in Las Vegas and I did quite well that I came to the world's in Las Vegas and I decided I was stepping away. I needed to set a new fitness goal. This wasn't going to be my life anymore. It was too all consuming for me and and to be honest Charlie for the next eighteen months. I didn't really do anything in the fitness realm. I kind of trained a few days on and off. I always did something in the gym. High intensity interval training bodyweight workout aesthetics. You don't just Kinda messing around with it. But I didn't really have any serious fitness goals. Now I wrote my first book my first book. The fitness mindset which did really well that was sixteen weeks of the bestseller list on Amazon is an eighth consecutive weeks and wrote that in released in two thousand seventeen and after that point when I came off the back of the success of that book I was starting to get that little bit of a hollow auto feeling again Ronn like mine. I haven't set a goal for myself in ages. I haven't had any fitness school. Because I've been so focused on my business so focused on my family so focused on the book at the time and then I was at this event in Tony Robbins business mastery in Amsterdam and I met a friend who I've met a guy who sits become a close and personal friend totten's name and he ran what he told me about was ultra marathons and I had been from a world of played sports all my life football rugby soccer and I'd never heard of an ultra marathon marathons I like really ignorant the ass of the what an ultra marathon committee and he was like an over her marathon distance and he told me about this race in the Sahara called Maratha Saab which is marathon in the sand. It's six back to back marathons self sufficient through the Sahara desert in the north of Morocco and itself supported to carry all your food on your back to give you water checkpoints but evidence self sufficient. We need to have a venom pump within arms reach at all times so that your in case you get bitten by a snake armor. I'm telling you about this event. He did and I was like that sounds insane and planted the seat and I was like a couple of months later signed up for his having never random marathon having never ran and running when it's unfamiliar with the way I look. I'm fair from built like an marathon runner like I'm short and stock Yemeni harsh really built for Durance and I signed up in August two thousand seventeen and then decided that look. I need to start training for the marathon to solve in April of Twenty eight eighteen so I signed up to my first ever marathon there Dubai marathon in January two thousand eighteen Iran with a backpack in thirty five degrees and Dubai. By and from there on I just kept training in April around those six back to back marathons through the Sahara Avenue kind of got hooked and ultra endurance in February of this year around June thirty kilometers through the Arctic circle which was gold old. And now a minute. I'm currently trading for one hundred mile to marathon in Nevada in February. And so that's kind of a long story you've got a medium not long story. Short story brought to a kind of a medium to where I am. Now in the transition from bodybuilding fitness model into running ultra endurance events. Going to challenge my body in a different way then to be honest charity it. It all comes down just needed a goal to work towards because I train hired otherwise 'em and I recommend that to everybody. Listen it's relative like you don't have to run to the The Arctic for some people. It's just going to the gym twice going for a walk around the block after work. When you know you'll be tired or decided body weight program Monday Wednesday and Friday for the next three months? You know it's completely relative. What for me working towards a goal and not wanting Halloween into combat because? I'm not working any specific fitness goal. modest the distance is your Rhode Island oversee pre yourself in his positions blanket. Imagine it was just incredible when you actually accomplish them. Oh it's different. Especially to be honest. There was a huge difference between the first two between Maryland Assab because when Iran six back to back marathons in the Sahara. I'd never done anything like that before I ever marathon which was on the road in a few months earlier and I wasn't sure sure Charlie until I got to the finish line of the six back to back marathons if I was going to be able to finish like there's so many things that could have gone wrong. I was like I just didn't know the article slightly different. I knew I was going to finish that race. And it's probably a different story for different day but I tore my kidneys. Eighty six kilometers from the end of that race and the High A.. Different completely different relationship with pain. In 'cause I powered through for the eighty kilometers off three months after put I powered through honors. And what you get out of these events for me anyway like you just get this massive of net benefit your confidence grows. You feel like you can attack any obstacle comes your way you get really good at separating like real problems from perceived problems so like even in my everyday life in my business with my daughter with my family like I get very good between separating right. This isn't a rea- problem. This is an inconvenience. This can be fixed verses this is this is a real problem I e. There's something wrong with my daughter. There's something wrong with my mom. There's something wrong with the family. Member and ultra endurance gives me that. Because you're just doing that. On a micro basis. Yeah as I said you don't have to to do ultramarathons crazy events to get that people get it from different areas. But it's definitely something I've got. I've got a massive net benefit as a result of
Sahara migration route: Many would die without us, migration agency warns
"They cod move with you and us every month, the UN rescues, Ron one thousand in two hundred people from divest Sahara, desert near Niger, many after they've been abandoned by traffickers, who promised to take them to Libya, Nigeria or Morocco, in an interview with Daniel Johnson from you and us jewel millman from the UN migration agency, ICM says it without its help virtually all of them would perish what we follow the SARS what we found since the beginning of time. Is that they're extremely lethal temperatures are high conditions are very rough hard sometimes to find water very hard to find fuel trucks, get abandoned migrants, get abandoned. There are accidents. There are people who died hydration or even murder. So if finding it's an extremely lethal environment. It's also an enormous expanse of territory to try to cover. We do our best we've done one hundred and eighty nine mission. Since April twenty sixteen approximately twelve hundred people month are taken out of the desert this way. It's an average of forty a day. Of course, we're not finding people every day. And you think you. Saved twenty thousand lives. You think since two thousand sixteen we think it's safe to say that the entire population that we brought out, which is almost twenty thousand people virtually all of them would have perished if we had not been able to find them. So the migrants themselves must know that the journey is paralleled, that they're going to be in the hands of traffickers, that there was a high risk of them dying. Why do they continue to do this? Well, certainly, they know that, and certainly another risks involved, we hear a lot of people say that it's God's decision when I die, or I would have died, if I stayed at home, I mean, there is a kind of fatalism that comes along with this, that desperate, they're desperate or they're hopeful there Embiid who can't always know, but we do know is ninety eight percent of the people that we brought out, do choose voluntary return to their homes. So it makes it very strong impression to escape death this way and they'd rather go with the known misery at home than continue on how many change their mind again. We just don't know. So we're talking about nesia here. But in neighboring Mali, you don't really have access, but you would like to. Yeah, we're at a lot of countries across the region. We want to make clear that the twenty thousand rescued isn't simply one country and there are other countries we'd like to do more and like Molly. But this is something that we've been active in across the region, including in southern Libya said, what happens next you're going to continue to rescue these people. You have these refuge centres, Fulton as a big win in ECE macaroni, think you were saying, so we're just going to carry on listening to, you telling us about these people crossing the Sahara, and dying being picked up, what's Iowa? I'm going to do about this. We plan to add resources to an ongoing project called the missing migrants project. We use it all over the world. It's very key. Indentifying routes and particularly hotspots violence are dangerous lurk. We've had a lot of success with this around the world pointing out places where there's an alarming concentration of homicides or behavior deaths this very helpful to thirties, and help to our own planning and trying to rescue people and know where the act of spots are across the world and we plan to add those resources in this region. So we can do a little better job of identifying danger before it takes another life. Finally, maybe you could just. Explain the kinds of how chips that people men, women and children are facing once they decide to get in a truck crossed the Sahara hardships, obviously, mistreatment by smugglers is a key trucks are overloaded trucks are poorly supplied trucks have to be pushed out of revenge or holes that they get stuck in the often, the migrants are not only neglected in their welfare, they're often used as part of the machinery, to move others along when someone gets hurt or falls off a truck, they will often be abandoned.

The devastated Europe in fourteenth century, also swum down and hit sub Saharan Africa and Meghan Cantwell. Talks with custodial petits about evidence for humans hunting and butchering giant ground sauce more than twelve thousand years ago in Argentina. Now, we have contributing correspondent Lizzie way to talk to us about a completely different story than we discussed last week this time, we're going to talk about the extent of the medieval plague most of us know about the black death in Europe. But turns out the plague may have gone a lot further than researchers had thought highly. Hi, Sarah would has up until now been accepted extent of display during the fourteenth century. So most of us know about the black death from these mass graves in London, and it really affected all of Eurasia sending from at least Russia over to the British Isles down to Egypt and North Africa around the Mediterranean world. But once he gets to Africa, it encounters this big environmental barrier, which is the Sahara desert, which is obviously a very extreme trying climate and sense. The plague travels in fleas infesting wrote on populations history. Had just sort of assumed that it had made it across the Sahara desert that it was too hard. Thus the societies in sub Saharan Africa had been spared this tragedy. Right. There was even some archaeology or lack of archaeology that back that up, right? There was no written record of plague hitting sub Saharan Africa during that time yet there are very few mentions of diseases. Well, there are very few written records from medieval sub Saharan Africa to begin with other. There are some some of them have some kind of mentions of epidemics diseases. But that doesn't really tell you what microbe is causing them. Right. And these plague pits haven't been discovered the big advance recently, of course, in the study of the black death in Europe has been engine DNA. You can actually find the DNA of the micro organism. That causes plague in skeletal remains of people who died from it. And that hasn't been found in African so far. I was going to say what is the new evidence? Why are we? Talking about whether or not the plague made its way across the Sahara, Sam historians and archaeologists have just been rethinking this a little bit sub Saharan Africa in particular has been envisioned as disconnected from the rest of the world during this period. This medieval period, European traders weren't going there yet people just thought it was often its own doing its own thing, which is kind of a colonial way of looking at things and people are sort of reevaluating the story about how Africa sub Saharan. Africa was connected to the rest of the world finding lots of links through trade and other other ways and so- plague came up as one of these possible ways because in the fourteenth century this is late thirteenth hundreds just as the plague is striking London. And all these other medieval European cities. There's also this big change in many sub Saharan African societies..

"There you go. I'm not sure I'm Copacetic with that. This is trash. It doesn't really get around it 'cause all becoming more wearable on the I think the technology on the some of the new cars is there's so much software. Now, it's like an ipad on wheels. You don't get Tesla's. You know, get any car that has some sort of Evi capability the mechanical parts are actually pretty simple now compared to even the best of the gasoline Bucar so companies who made to digital copy parts like transmissions now trying to wonder what they're going to be doing in ten years time because there's going to be no transmissions is going to be no gas engines things are going to be different. So companies that have survived on that for years won't be making the bulk of their money from that. I don't think they're going to go away this going to still be a hardcore car lover fi eight horsepower Rev roaring craziness about us. Vs you need to transmit the power from that motor to the wheels. In some way, that requires a reduction gearbox usually one single speed essentially, so those need to be high quality parts their expected life. You know, he's going to be two hundred three hundred thousand miles without any changes on these gearboxes on these reduction boxes. So that's where their expertise is going to come in these guys know how to manufacture precision machine years, they're super resilient to long-term where I think this is where they're going to go. There are some very interesting portions of technology now with these vehicles just visit a couple of them wifi. For instance, the new Ford edge, and the explorer is gonna have wifi into the radiates fifty feet outside of the vehicle. So he go campsites, and you can share wifi with ten people intense next the car just run it off the wifi where it used to be something really just for luxury cars or a separate unit. Installed the car. It's pretty much the norm now, I mean. Yeah, I think. It's a two way street right on one hand you get yourself some hotspot action in your car or in your surroundings. But at the same time for manufacturers telematic, so they can diagnose your car. They can. And the biggest feature is. I think we've seen this on some kind of companies is you send of softer update sunny the car does new stuff right sunny the car performs better. That's I think we're headed and you need connectivity. So why not give hotspot to everyone at the same time is coming and it's going to be something a little I went to the Jaguar landrover research center in Portland. And when I was there this was about three years ago. They were showing me technology. They were working for the future. Where for instance, if you drove your Jaguar landrover out to the middle of the Sahara desert, you left, it there for somebody to pick up that person would just have to get close enough to the car with a car could read the phone even near field communications or bluetooth said this their phone and the code that was in their phone the Email that you'd send them read it, and then it would unlock itself. Old and allow them to drive it that technology, I think is going to become more prevalent. So the new Lincoln aviator their new SUV, which is about the size of the explorer. You won't have a physical key to drive the car, you will send that key to your loved ones or your friends. L the service manager of the they will be able to drive the car until you disable it the best part about this Meghan should be really excited about this. If you're eighteen year old or seventeen year old son or your fifteen year old daughter goes out to the car, and you should get on the phone with them. And they're being a brat. Let's turn the phone off. Make you get a new home. That's it. Disabled, get an Uber. Hope you're done. I like I like that idea. And unfortunately, have a bit of you. It's it's probably not something you should do with everybody. But the technology is completely changing how we'll operate are. 'cause right when I was grounded speaking of technology. My dad would just pull the spark plugs. So wow. Yeah. Big difference. I see. Someone like Marian would probably have just screwed them back in. She. Figure out what he was doing. You mentioned that you do.

"He is the ocean. Master will not yet. He he aims to be his automatic commentary on global warming. Oh, it's not a commentary on anything. Yeah. I thought it was going to be like they trash our oceans, and we give it back to them. And then that plot is forgotten in favor of going to the desert. Where all command belongs. Yeah. The Sahara, well, he goes to the desert for no reason. Well, it's referred to an ocean of sand. That's the only reason. Yeah. Yes. Josh there used to be an ocean there. I don't think that's what the point that. They're making though is it. No. I mean, I appreciate like, I always find landmass shift. Really interesting. I I I like there's a they have this key. Right. Willem Dafoe is this wise guy? And he's like, you gotta find that tried Ed. So they go in search of king Atlantans Trident. Yes. Who is the OG king of Atlantis who also led to it's horrifying downfall and sinking into the ocean. But he's Yoji king of Atlanta's. Yes. Yeah. And he left this key which has clues. And they take it to the Sahara, but they turns out the Sahara desert and it's powered by water shit. It's too dry. And so she teases. What out of Jason Jason moas musk? And then puts a drop of it in the in the tube. And I was like well the tube wasn't dry. The tube has been underwater for centuries. Shouldn't he she have made the other stuff wet within the other stuff dry? The tube was the tube was perfectly wet. Locked into whatever locked in to look, actually, I thought the Sahara thing was fun. It was their way of being like, well, how do we make all command smart? Oh, he figured out desert used to be see it's still hope. I think it's just referred to the sad. A lot of people have pointed out sort of the the strange musical choice for that scene. The sort of old sorta nineties of maybe even like eighties like do do do you do. Well, the music during what's the Manta's seeing Santa assembling his thing. He says call me black may I know he doesn't like when he's assembling his weapon, and that music that was out of this time that was unreal. It's out of the whole mood. None of it makes any sense. Well, it's just there. There's the the weird sort of tonal shift of the movie where it does become this bike tomb raider ask, you know, whatever national treasure like, let's go around the world finding these things and it is from a. Clues left ten thousand years ago to the parts that stuck out for me one. They said go to believe it was Venice are Italy something like that with wherever somewhere, there's the Mediterranean coast like us, the Spyglass upon the statue in you will see where it is. And the looking around what about this? This statue that's been here for a few thousand years, and it's broken in a way that it could just perfectly hold the bottle. That's a lot riding on that like riddle. You know, a truck doesn't back up and do it on earthquake goes off because that statues blown up moments later where that's a that's a pretty intricate part of that. Yeah. Getting toward they need to go. Either way also moss forever. If you think about the fact that the statue probably wouldn't have been broken when the riddle was made based off the time. 'cause like he literally looks through the broken back head of the staff. Yes. But it probably would have been a fully complete statue. When someone wrote the riddle in the first place is a ruining the move from. I'm just these are these are things that stood out to me while watching the this literally, and I don't think while you want. Here's here's recommendations. Come back, and they go they go. Well, how come you like this? But you thought this was really early in the movie, but across other movies for me, the differences a terrible movie like Jurassic world or drastic world fallen kingdom would stop. And explain that statue, it would stop and go..

"We came to unanimous decision afford with the results which was we found water and it was not a small amount of water. It was a significant amount and I was talking with my wife actually about how to convey this because I could talk with five percent by weight or it was, you know, thirteen hundred and forty two kilograms and thirty meter. Yeah. Five percent by weight, whereas water in the Sahara desert on earth or three percent by weight. So we did sort of a relatively dry, but still has a lot of water. Wetter than the Sahara desert. Sweat, it's even comparable to earth. That's pretty crazy. Yeah. And so my wife said, well, how many buckets is that like buckets? Like? Why don't you just get a bucket and say, I got this much water on the moon guy could do that. So we got it to gallon bucket. And then that press briefing said, we've found not as small amount we've found is significant amount. Actually in the little hole, we may teeny little holy made. We had one hundred and fifty these two gallon buckets or I forget the number time. So that's the origin of the bucket and everything. It made a good point and that's actually really can't. The other thing that I like about using the bucket was l. cross was not a science mission. It did fantastic science, but it was not a science mission. It's purpose. It was actually supported funded through the human exploration office in. That's not the science mission. It's purpose to understand that hydrogen as it related to a potential resource. Could we use a hydrogen on the moon for making water for. Rocket fuel, and that's the most important one. It takes a lot of energy to lift anything out of the gravity well of earth using sources right there on the here. Bringing up is not efficient efficient. If you can make it there, you can. You're saving a ninety percent of fuel need because you spend ninety percent or so of the fuel, just to get off the earth l. crushes sampled one tiny place and head buckets of water and all those images from the pre predecessor orbiters that showed hydrogen signatures and many, many craters on both polls. There's a lot of resources there. So the anniversary of that was what was Tuesday? Yeah. Nine years ago and we're still writing papers on it, four minutes. The all could fit onto a circa two thousand nine drive and then playing room leftover salsa. Also changed the way we were looking at the moon now -pletely it. It really has changed the way it'd be. That's actually a really good point. The last thing I'll say about the the results, so they're a significant results out of Al cross that we reported at that mean was there we knew the form of the water hydrogen indeed was at least was water, and we know now is water ice. We knew there was a Nuff to be a to be potential resource institute resource utilization. And those were the two big questions. And third thing was unexpected. We saw lots of other things besides water. Yeah, it's almost like these shadow craters our garbage heaps of the system. There's a lot of treasure troves. Color heavy. Recycling, too. So as you can reuse things that are been claimed. Things were like carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide mercury. Argonne. Yes, some of these things you can use some of these things you want to avoid. Like if you mind the water for drinking better, get rid of the mercury and and so, but it's very interesting from a science standpoint, from resource and point. Yes. Interesting. But from scientific import from this says something about the origin of the water, and then therefore says something about the history of the moon and earth and all the inner planets, inner solar system planets. And so it's really wasn't amazing. Finding from cross. The moon is the laboratory and it's time sheen back to what had happened back then, what's been happening since does that Lauder, and those other speeches have been there for at least two billion years. We found the water and now we follow it out. There's another mission. So the three at a last five, what was. Warn you. I've got a bunch of awesome questions. So this question we get them all. Okay, Johnny was talking about how we found all these other things in the base of this crater one place and you. You know you, you naturally ask more questions. That's the beauty of these missions. You find a discovery, but like what did it come from?.
"sahara desert" Discussed on Dressed: The History of Fashion
"We explore the who, what when of why we wear, where fashion historians and your host, Cassidy's accuracy and abra Kellyanne I'd like to start the show off today cast by mentioning. A fascinating article that I read about a recent scientific discovery involving one point. One billion euro marine sedimentary rocks in the Sahara desert. Okay. I have so much confidence in you that I know you're going to tie this indefatigable in some clever way. Just bear with me a bit, but these particular rocks were very interesting to a set of string and scientists because within them they contain remnants of ancient ocean organisms. Ooh, and that also implies that this region of the Sahara was covered by water more than a billion years ago. Yes. And when they put them to some rigorous scientific analysis, the rocks revealed molecular fossils of chlorophyll that contained what is now in Sittard the world's oldest pigment one, five hundred million years older than any pigment known previously and what this color was might just surprise you. It was pink, wow. I mean, we, there's been a lot of fame shades of pink over the years, and we have mentioned of course Skop rallies signature. Her shocking pink on the show in the past. And I'm sure practically every one of us can conjure up a notion of Barbie pink, but would we call this is this primordial pink? Oh, that's good one. Well, if it's not already called that it should be because pretty spot on, wouldn't that be fabulous? If the entire prehistoric world was just pink on pink on pink. So if you haven't guessed it by now, that's what we're talking about today. All things, pink and love it or hate it. The color pink has a fascinating history apparently billion years in the making its symbolism shifting across not only time, but also the ways in which various cultures have used and perceive the color and fashion and dress, and it's a bit of a winding twisting tail and to delve into this topic, we are so fortunate to be joined today by one of the foremost academics working in the field of fashion history doctor, Valerie Steele. She is the director and chief curator of the museum at FIT in New York City where her current exhibition pink. The history of a punk pretty powerful color is on view until January fifth, two thousand nineteen. Welcome Valerie. Yes, Valerie, thank you so much for being here with us today. Thank you. So I must admit right here at the top of the episode that until hearing a little while back that this was going to be the subject of your up. Upcoming exhibition. I personally had never really given a whole lot of thought to the symbolic nature of pink outside of its contemporary connotations of gender in western dress. But really there is so much to the story here, and I think one of the things that your show reveals is the fact that the color pink is immensely polarizing. And for reasons that are not always immediately clear. So I'm thinking it may be helpful to start with some early history of the use of the color and build a little bit of a story arc from there. When do we start to see references to paint and how we're early pink Hughes created for use in dies. Let me start a little earlier than that. I mean, pink exists in nature, particularly in flowers, but although all humans can see pink, many cultures of not regarded Pinkus a very important colour. And in fact, many cultures had no term for the color pink. They just would call it light rid and so ancient Greek. Latin didn't have words for it, even English and French didn't have specific words color words for pink rose or pink until the late seventeenth or eighteenth century now. So it's very interesting to see how different cultures eventually decide that pink is a color that's worth giving a name to Japan. On the other hand, had a word for pink more than one word for pink more than a thousand years before western Europe. But that was because red was so important for them. They had many words for red, and then they had additional words for pink, cherry blossom, pink peach, pink. And in the twentieth century, also pink coup alone, word, meaning foreign pink. Oh, so they're many images from East Asia that show people wearing pink men and women. We find some in the middle ages in Europe because pink Di was imported from Asia from Sumatra and India, and including, for example, images of a risk Socratic..

"As usual. Thank you for your patience. We head back to the phones. Will we have to the phones? And this is Scott in Oklahoma City. Great to have you here. Hi, rush. Good to talk to you. Thank you, sir. Elizabeth Warren is resurrecting the one drop rule an anti fell on. Rule created by southern plantation owners Democrats say if you have one drop. Black was black. You're black. This was this is a grotesque rule percentages so small excuse me second hasn't that rural been adopted by civil rights activists now that if if you have one drop you can be called black. What that's exactly right intersection. -ality requires quantification. Yeah. And so we we need to know how much of a percentage oppressor you are versus oppressed. This this world is is grotesque widely discredited used by the KKK in the thirties used in Nazi Germany against the Jews. Here. She comes again, this is actually a dog whistle to her base. It's not meant for Republicans for conservatives about her to run. She needs to tell her base. I'm on board with intersex -ality. Look how much of an oppressor AM, and let's find out your percentage of across her too. Would you define the intersection out of the it is a relatively new leftist activist concept that I find most people to whom I mentioned it have no idea what it is. How would you define it? Glad to thanks for the opportunity to do. So you're more than welcome. That's a good host. I know what you're thinking. And asking when they listen to a caller savings. I agree with that. Look intersection holiday comes straight out of Marxism, March said that everyone is either an oppressor or oppressed there. Either Bush wa or proletariat. Later. It's now being adopted the idea of being able to declare percentages of what you are how the Preston. How much of an oppressor you are it's cold intersex analogy because instead of just being one camp or the other spread across race gender sexual preference and other variables. Yes. Okay. That's intersection outta be for the great unwashed. You're you're talking. You're you're speaking in language of people formerly educated on Marxism. Many people aren't that's why it's so successful. Intersection is basically something that has been constructed by these marxists to say that all of these different leftist organizations meet somewhere they all intersect with each other. The feminists have this strain about them that that that cohabitate with with militant Islamists that then with illegal immigrants and their activists in were all of these people intersect is where they unify. Well, yes. But it also applies to the individual because of these let's say five different dimensions. You are on a different scale and all of those and they intersect into a single number quantifiable says that this is how much of an oppressor or oppressed. You are this is where you on the field. Of course, this is the root of all this and there's recent white privilege stuff pops. Absolutely. So now Elizabeth Warren because she wants to justify her cultural. Appropriation of a Harvard professorship has to claim a particular percentage of intersection holiday oppression. To speak their language. So she is saying that she is an oppressed. She's oppressed in many ways, she's a woman therefore, she is impressed by the patriarchy. And now as a one thousand twenty four th Indian she is oppressed by the white man, which is a again, a resurrection of the one drop rule. This percentage is so low as to be a joke. You know? If I could say I took a DNA test about four years ago. And of course, you don't know me you've never seen me. But believe me, I'm white. However what I discovered was zero point eight percent sub Saharan Africa. Well, that doesn't mean I'm going to Harvard angering to claim a professorship in African American studies. But I have what is that almost eight times. More sub Saharan African black heritage in me, and she does native American. It's just cemented sub Saharan is not automatically quote, unquote, black. Well, that's right. But in this instance, because we've identified the ancestor Connors are not black. Well, I understand what you're saying. I I'm referring to black skin. Okay. All right. I just wanted to specify because sub Saharan this is people. What do you mean sub Saharan? What is it? And then you start talking to the subcontinent than some people really get confused, you're jumping from from India over sub Saharan Africa is below the Saharan desert, which is where most of the population of Africa is most of it. There is some north of the Sahara desert as well. I get I get your point. And her reason for doing this all of that notwithstanding. The accuracy of it notwithstanding. The left is pretty upset that she chose this particular time to do this because they think it is totally self serving. It does not do anything, but distract from the midterm elections, which are three weeks from tomorrow. Away. And so there are some people who are on the left or claiming that she's selfish and trying to hog what is a lot of light being shined on politics right now because of the because the elections I think a lot of is just rooted in they have Trump Itis, many of them do and they live and breathe. To expose Trump for whatever they think he has to the point that people abandoning anyway. Well, I'm glad you waited Scott very much. Thanks so much. John in Tacoma, Washington. Your next I'm glad you waited too high. Oh, thank you fan megadose from under the shadow of mount Ranier, sir. I appreciate it. Thank you. Welcome. And just wanted to talk about the the movie guys. Mel I heard you on your Thursday or Friday show last week. You were you were speaking about that movie. So I decided to go check it out. That would be Friday. Yes. Yes. So I got a moment after work. I raced over to the I I watched over there. But I wanted to I just wanted to portray how. And it was very very powerful movie. And to illustrate that I just wanna share the experience of what happened after the moving. Normally when you go to a movie theater, you watch a movie, and then the credits start rolling in the music's playing, and you see people they they start getting up and filing out of the theater, and they're talking to each other and stuff, but this did not happen at the end of the movie guys. Now after the after the movie was over the credits began to roll and the music played in and after after a while all the credits finished and the music stopped and everybody was still seated there, okay? I need to ask you this. Because there's one thing about this. I I made a calculation. When I was talking about this on Friday to not mentioned something about this movie. Because I I did not want to frighten people or deter them from going to see it. Oh what? But what I'm not asking you to identify that. But what if anything surprised you that you didn't know or just just surprised you period? Even if you think you didn't know about the movie, what did you learn you didn't know? Well, I didn't know about who. Mr. guys know was I I was not familiar with the case or anything like that. But that wasn't that wasn't really the powerful piece about it. But I guess the. The what what made it would meet everybody if they were all feeling like me and all sitting down and not moving after the movie was over. Why is it was it was about an abortion doctor? Yes. But this this is a movie about a murder trial, and but during the murder trial, the there there were two there were there were two things that were portrayed in one was just the barbarity of what happens in those clinics. But even more than that, what was that? What what what what what was the barbarity? What happened in the clinics? Oh, the barbarity of what happens in an abortion clinic when though in God's Nells in God's Nells clinic. What happened? What was the? Oh that that he was he was allowing babies to be born. And then after they were born, Dan, he would tell them exactly that is the vast majority. This is why he's called the biggest serial killer in American history. Guys. Nell killed most of the babies after they were born alive. And he did it by snipping their spinal cords with scissors. Now, I didn't say this on Friday. I didn't say this on Friday about Gaza. What he did? Because I didn't want to frighten people away. It's not as you. I had to struggle to get this out of you. So it's not something that jumps out at you. When you watch the way, he's right. It is about primarily a trial. I made the point of saying that Nick Hersi who's the director. Let's the storyteller itself. There aren't any exaggerating computer generated graphics. There's there's not a lot of special effect. Real or computer generated in order to shock because the story tells itself the numbers of children born alive killed by this man is stunning and shocking. Then you realize that the mainstream media never even covered the trial, much less. What he had done. They've always done their best to suppress it. It was nearly impossible to get this movie made precisely because of what it revealed. Hollywood doesn't want this movie made the actors in this movie were risking their future. Careers by taking it rolls people. Like, Nick who? Is an across the board actor he can take lead. It can take a supporting role. He can take a. Whatever you want. He chose to direct this movie and all of these people in one way or another were risking something. Major by tackling it and doing it. They couldn't find funding. People are on the go fund me pages would not allow any kind of public funding for the production costs Facebook Twitter. I don't know specifically which one do they wouldn't allow any was Facebook would not allow any kind of promotion. Reference or fundraising for this at all is actually kind of. Amazing or miraculous. But it it was it was a lot of hard work and a lot of time. To get this movie made. But it was a real challenge for them. How how difficult is it to focus on the fact that this abortionist did his murderous work outside the womb? He did his share of of abortions in the womb. But the numbers of born alive that this man murdered. It's just stunning everybody thinks late term abortion is bad. And by the way, this kind of abortion, and it's called an abortion. If you if it's got a term, I'm having a mental block, and with a term of this is, but in Illinois and so forth when when a procedure came up a Bill was sponsored to stop this. I think it was Barack Obama who refused to support it. The left will not support any limit whatsoever on whatever is called an abortion. And the the the thing the left has tried to do in countering. This movie is to say, well, well, if you want more gods Nells than you go to overturn Roe versus Wade. They tried to say Gosnell was doing what he was doing because women had no other choice. They couldn't go anywhere. That's a flat out lie, by the way, guys Nells clinic, if you will none of the none of the gear was sterilized people that were getting sick and infected with it just it was a pig. Sty was in Philadelphia. But I didn't focus on that on purpose because I didn't want. I know. 'cause you don't see it. That's my point. They don't graphically try to make their point they focus on the murder trial. But good going out there, John. I'm sure he was he was getting sweaty and nervous out there. What is Russia wanna hear? What got it's not that. I wanted to hear anything. But that is what I think most people will learn that they didn't know if they.
Trump suggested Spain build African Sahara wall to stop migrants
"President trump. Remember him? We all know he wants to build a wall. And now he wants other countries to belong to. President Trump has a brand new border wall controversy only this one involves the desert in Africa. Spain's for minister says Trump told him he should build a border wall across the entire Sahara desert to four Europe's migrant crisis having the world learn about your towed penis. And it's still only the second most embarrassing story about you this week. I'd like to be honest. I'm disappointed in Trump. Because when he first came up with the wall, I thought he was like a crazy out of the box thinker. But now I realize he's only got one move like I wouldn't be shocked. If Trump uses the wall as a pickup line like he's that guy. The ball was like excuse me miss is that drink a wall because somebody else is about to pay for it. By the way, I believe I have to say this, but Africa is not a part of Spain. So they conscious build something on someone else's land radio from hell of Kerry, Bill and Gina on x ninety
Trump suggested Spain build African Sahara wall to stop migrants, minister says
"Trump reportedly suggested to Spain that they should build a wall. He where the Leo love this across the Sahara to deal with the issues of migration from Africa. Why don't you? Go ahead. He's like he's just seem kind of whispering. And you have this problem with Africa? Has he looked on a map? I like walls, you should consider building a wall in the desert. Yeah. I really easy to build. There's zero water out there. You have to carry it out yourself. Yeah. But just take everything you need out there. I don't think that's going to work. I I don't think the grounds. A little iffy. Wells, no shoes on. Yeah. I just I don't I don't know what the terrain of the Sahara desert is right. All I have to go. By is the movie the scorpion king? Yeah. So I would guess that. If it's like that it's gonna be tough to build a wall to me. The breaking news here is that Spain has part of the Sahara desert. Never would have guessed that do they? Yeah. That doesn't work. How does that work? I don't know. But that's where he said build it. So I'm guessing it's on their Lana. No, no. It's not on Spain's. Spain is way over here. Build the wall in the Sahara, well, probably because he figured that's where people they'd have to get through the Sahara to get to to space Spain. Spain owns a very tiny slice of North Africa. There you go. Yes. Okay. Like, I said, I don't think he would just say, you know, why don't you put a wall up in Germany like when he's talking about. Well, they had one and it did. And was there for what forty year thirty year? No, all I'm saying is it would be really random of him to just say put one in some random area that isn't associated with their country. Well, it's random that. He would offer anybody the idea of building a wall. Anyway, I mean, you'd think they couldn't think of that themselves. Here's the deal. Do you think he knew is that a question on this that the Sahara desert hat tip of it wasn't Spain? I I know no way in hell will the tip of is not in Spain. Spain does not have. He nailed it. We're done with this. But anyway. I love. Now. I gotta know I loved that. He is secretly or not secretly that. He is whispering to these people just that just favorite thing. Yes. You build a wall. You haven't problems Bill the wall? It's three thousand miles across you're talking about what he was talking about is buildings three thousand miles across in Spain connects to Africa. But it's not it's not in the USA is not in Spain. Okay. All right. So anyway, but that's the if you see a map. Yeah. Just picture picture the continent of Africa. Yeah.

Morocco: More Than Markets

There's over thirty three and a half million people in the country. Of course, it's nine, four predictably sand dunes, but also beaches, and markets and mountains. And it also feel forms the backdrop to many foreign films that have been entirely or at least partially shot in Morocco, which brings us to you quiz question name, three Hollywood movies that have been filmed in Morocco. And if you say Casablanca, you'll wrong that was filmed in Burbank was entirely. Yeah.

Now he runs the travel blow code indie, traveler and sharing budget travel gods alongside tips on packing and gear. And Morocco is one of the destinations that feature on the spot and Merrick has broken down of his the into three key areas. Yeah, I think what I did was probably so I spent spent a month in Morocco, and it struck me that there are some sort of tin routes that people usually might want to consider. I think there's sort of the standard trip seems to be Marrakesh the city of Marrakesh and the Sahara. Those usually go together in a one week experience where in the old city for a while, you know, exploring the markets, maybe staying in Riyadh. One of those traditional sort of. Almost palatial a little hotels with the courtyard. You go through the Sahara that's like one week, sort of classic Meralco experience. I would say, and there are two others have clusters of. Popular destinations went into north closer to Spain. You can even get there from Spain with the ferry and one further to south, which you can reach quite easily. If you fly to idea, for instance, which is kind of a resort, seaside resort place. Not using my kind of thing I like to explore and discover in the country, but actually it's really well connected. So from there you can do trip around to south very easily. Not many places where you can put sand dunes, betas mountains and desert into the kind of top five it has going for it. It's pretty unique. Yeah, it is. I think Morocco is great. Actually, it's it is a very unique this nation, and it is so close to Europe as well. I mean, I'm from Europe, so it's easy for me to get there. But auto listeners, we might be from Australia, the United States. It's a really great add on to if you're visiting Europe anyway. Because it's just so different you, you go there and just culturally. It's completely different and just visually as well on these desert towns and and these markets and everything is is a whole different little world. It's, it's I like to have these sort of immersive experiences when I travel, and that's really definitely possible in Morocco, whether he in the Sahara where it's just sand stretching out as far as you can see or you're, you're going through a little towns market place, and there's just so many smells and spices and different things going on there so much tippety. So that's just that's just I think one of the most appealing things about Morocco. It just feels like a very, very unique in different place.

"And so everything you said a beautiful old cities and whitewashed walls, and the blue city of chef Shaolin and the capital of robot CASA, Blanca, which gets a little bit of a bad rap kind of a place to just kind of fly in and out of. I think it's got one of the best Medina's or old towns that I've seen and Morocco. You know, the old center. And so I, I love the market there and so we get my people out and we, we go out and shoot those places. It's great. Say, if you've mentioned. A few of your favorite spots in any that you want find in a God booklet. You've stumbled across in just thought, well, well, I'm sure it's probably a guidebook, but there's a small town called scuba as k. o. u. r. a. and we kind of use it as a a mid point between the desert of air food, which is kind of the main city around air food for the Sahara desert. Kind of that stepping point off to the to the that really Connick sand dunes that you see and camel rides, things like that, these great hotels right out in the desert, but Skoda's sort of on the way to Marrakesh ad. So he uses a stop off point. And one of my favorite things that we do on the whole trip is we actually do a hike through an oasis and. You know when I was a kid, I don't know about you, but you watch those old cartoons and to me in a waste. This was just a a little clump of sand with one palm tree. And the, but in Morocco. And I'm sure other parts of the world, they can be forty miles long and five miles wide. And so you just in this very stark, dry desert, you've got this very lush. Obviously there's a river there. There's got to be water and so did there's these communities that have developed and we walked through the the basis and see what's actually there because as you're driving and there's a lot of driving in Morocco, you see these away this, you're driving by them typically, but to actually get in them and see how they really work is to me really fascinating. What's the mice phytogenetic country? Ooh, that's that's a tough question. They're all photogenic in their own ways and for different reasons. Now, I say as a travel photographer, you have to be a Jack of all John rose master of some and. A John Rowe photographer that we've got architectural photographers. You've got landscape photographers portrait photographers, but as a travel photographer, if you wanna tell the story of the place, you have to come back with a variety of images. And so that's why look for variety in the places that I go to and Morocco certainly high on that list. But also Romania, wonderful Cambodia Cuba, of course, and it doesn't matter what kind of camera you have or what your experiences if the light is good, the that's gonna take your photography to another level. Kept shitting me on your is fine. Have e. Yeah, I've got some really nice stuff on my iphone and actually one of my shots from Morocco was a finalist in the smartphone category for the travel photographer of the year just two, three years ago, and it's a shot of I'm sitting on the camera. Oh, and I've got the Campbell on his head and the camel driver, and then the distance, you see our hotel just a really a nice shot, but what you can get with these smartphones is just incredible. And I'm doing a lot more video these days as well and using the smartphone almost exclusively for that. Well, that's exciting. So anyone that's listening don't have to if you're going to Meralco packet digital lists, Alah you capture some good stuff on your on your Sirkin and and I don't even use a DSL our anymore..
