Plant of The Week: Bristlecone Pine
"With a plan of the week mark is one that is of structure it is a good nature. And it's very specially grown here at my house. It is one of the oldest plants on earth as far as anybody knows they're they're assuming that between four and seven thousand years old. They won't even tell the public where the tree is out on the west coast and then there are others in the two thousand to four thousand year range. I don't know who can tell anybody's been living. That long probably is not able to write much but at the same time they can do borings they can do various tests bristlecone pine is normally in the eight to twenty foot. Now that makes it a small tree for for your consideration also on rare occasion given extreme age they'll hit up into the fifty foot plus range but very very very slowly. I happen to have one that It was ready unique. It fell off the truck when it was delivered to the nursery but forty years ago. and it's Got badly broken onside matter of fact or one side off so all of a sudden now. There's a plant this just The one eighty part. I thought well. Now here's the chance. I took it home brought it home. I finished proper pruning of it. And i planted on a west facing brick wall between my porch and garage door. It is presently now mrs about a forty year period. It's presently standing. Maybe six and a half to seven feet tall. It is leaning against the brick wall. The west afternoon sun gives it the brilliant son that it needs. Then it's the hang which. I was delighted with the way. It took a hold It's it's pretty dry. Under most overhangs and with sufficient inadequate initially it took a whole and it grew like crazy about four inches a year. and that that's one of the beauties of it it's a rather Sculptured tree now you. You could look at that as a well. Let you say any of several words for recommendations. But it's irregular it's decorative and in my case. I've trimmed it to stay along the wall now. It isn't much to trim probably every other year. I have to be sure nothing on the side. Branches are sticking out beyond about ten inches from the wall. I don't want it to be able to pull itself away from the wall. Should we get snow or ice. Or whatever on it I have only anchored in two places over the long haul and rest of. It is handled with pruning and i won. One landscape showed up at my house a long time ago and was lamenting the fact that he needed to plant exactly like that and i said well you can have mine at the right price. Yeah he said. What's the right price. And i told him and he said okay. I'll have a truck here monday morning. Whoa whoa not serious. Not certain beauty now you can grow it. let's just say you're regularly It does require son and then the beauty of it is you. Don't handle darn near any soil now not not excessively wet by any means it prefers out west growing it well. The big one is untold is a very rocky gravelly soil. Sandy When it rains which is not too often it will soak up enough water down deep enough that the roots can stay alive until the next rain which may be a whole year or some portion thereof so anyhow a very tolerant plant very very interesting and I highly recommend it. But don't don't don't plan where you need to get screening from the neighbor in short order because it isn't going to happen that way.
The Golden State Warriors Path to Regain Glory
"Hello hello pablo. I am so excited to talk to you today. Because you have been digging into the golden state warriors and you've talked to their players. Their coaches their executives. But i want to know what other people are curious about. They hear that you're writing a future on the warriors. What did they want to know can still work can steph curry dragged his team by the scruff of its neck into the playoff field. Can they approximate without klay thompson. Kevin durant gone even a glimmer of what they were during their dynasty. And that's what people wanna know. And at the center of all of this kevin this week in particular is steph curry and we can't begin this conversation without talking about what he did specifically on sunday night. How would you describe what you saw. It was a volcano curry leads. In one hand or just off balance grows it up. It's good he's got fifty. Career screen takes a deep free. It's god fifty nine points. Curry takes another three. It's up job. He's got sixty two just unspeakable three point attempts that no person with a good conscience ever a nation of basketball coaches is freaking out. Because they're going to have fourteen year olds in practice pulling up from thirty seven feet. There was the sense coming out of their very met to into road trip. That steps showing few signs he might. It's gonna happen. It may happen. Don't you think it's going to happen. He's starting to move differently. We're starting to find him. The ball and places he likes it and as draymond green said to somebody on the staff. All it takes is one in. We saw that one sunday night against portland and essentially recreated the steph. We knew for those five years over the dynasty. Let's be clear about what the prelude to that career high sixty two was because he was shooting. What like twenty percent from three in those first two games so when people are begging hoping for that volcano to start shaking again. Why do you think it actually ended up exploding as it did. I mean one is just the laws of inevitability second is in your staff. They all emphasize this. And it sounds a little bit like spin. If you're if you're sort of cynical which is look. He's playing with guys that he's never played with before. But when you really start digging into it and you remember what it was like to watch the weird they don't run scripted sets all that much mall. Those great beautiful plays that you see that. Look like basketball ballet. They use intuition. They use a million reps playing together to sort of know where everybody's going to be almost telepathically on the floor. And so you've seen that a million times steph. Runs comes off a pick and roll. He gives the ball up. He relocates to the corner other people kind of follow him there. Somebody comes off the other side and then steph kind of relocates again and you find him and it's so second nature if you watched it for five straight years you come to take it for granted but if the other guys on. The floor aren't versed in the dark arts of golden state warriors movement. It's harder and it was something that i think other teammates. The new guys andrew wiggins kelly oubre rookie. James wideman guys. Who haven't played as long with him. It takes a little while to get in the rhythm. There was like a moment. I think in the milwaukee their second loss of the season where you saw step come off one of those speaking roles and he was going to kind of go fast too slow to the right corner and there was somebody there right and it wasn't the fault of a teammate. It's just they're not equipped with the intuition and just the nuances of golden state warriors basketball. Which essentially is how do we find steph. The right shot at the right moment at the right time precisely where he wants it. It's funny
Michigan is as top team in their league
"Michigan looks tremendous hunter dickinson is. This is one pat myself on the back here. Real quick this is when i had nailed before before the season started i thought hunker hundred dickinson was going to wind up as top ten freshmen. In america. this season informed by a couple of things one. He was awesome as a recruit and he was. He was highly lauded like blue chip of recruit. But he wasn't by the time he finished his high school career. He wasn't in that top. Ten range But i pre- pretty sure you saw him right alongside me In some of the games that he played on the summer circuit and he was great and knowing what michigan loss from a season ago and how. I expected him to be used. You know. I didn't think he'd be the team's best player. He's been the teams best player. I thought it would be isaiah. Livers in franz wagner and then dickinson three dickinson's awesome so Certainly a shout to him and he has been able to step in. You know as seven foot seven one kind of guy and just be a problem for opposing teams If you listen to the podcast now you're in on him early. He could be one of those players that once college basketball is more you know generally talked about the games are more prominent. The nfl season's over college football season's over you might start to hear a little bit more. See a little bit. More buzz about hunter dickinson but yes michigan is right there at the top of the league right now whether you want to argue is in michigan wisconsin illinois obviously rutgers and northwestern iowa who's the best of the big ten. Nobody knows but right now. Michigan is the only one in the entire league that can say it's played and not taking a loss and it's done that With eight games under its belt so very impressive right now and sitting at the top of the week.
Where Is The Joe Paterno Statue?
"For years now the whereabouts of an iconic joe paterno statue have been unknown and today as part of our. Look back at twenty twenty. We're replaying an episode about the statue that first aired back in june. The athletics audrey snyder spoke with me. About why penn state has gone to such great lengths to conceal the statues location and which she discovered in her own quest to find it from wondering athletic. I'm could beat the davidson and this is the lead so audrey. it's been almost ten years since. Joe paterno at penn state. What is the state of their football program. Today penn state right now is consistently tap. Fifteen program tackles still on his feet. Smoke with a straight on touchdown. This is a team. That's been the new year's six games in three of the past four years. This is a team. That's at a high level of benefit prospects and it's almost easy to forget where this program was just because of how quickly it's it's found itself on the rebound so the reason we're here today. The joe paterno statue which became a huge source of contention in the aftermath of the jerry. Sandusky scandal can you describe in back in those days the providence of the turner statue on campus. It was a really big deal. There was one stop many fans had to make before they went into beaver stadium to watch the game. Whenever we come to penn state. We never failed to stop by and have our picture taken here. Embodies a man. It is the bronze statue of joe. Paterno who's a seven foot nine hundred pound bronze statue. There were thousands upon thousands of graduation photos of kids in caps and gowns underneath. Joe paterno as he has his barons pointer finger extended in the air and it was just such a landmark and walk us through what it was like when the statue came down with authorities are on site this morning at penn state prepping to bring down joe paterno statue. Employees have begun to place fencing around the statue and a tarp state college and university. Police are on the scene right. Your i've learned morning defense up around statue about thirty police. Officers walk out of beaver stadium surround. The statue was done like a surprise by six o'clock in the morning on a sunday people were already wondering what happened to this statue and where it went and for so many fans. The removal of the statue made it look like joe paterno was guilty and so many people who are looking at this story a locally they see a statue coming down and they say well clearly this isn't mission of joe paterno skills and that honestly that's something in the court of public opinion that's continued to play out but turnover reported to people will counteract that and say well. He didn't do enough. He should've done more. He should have followed up with more statue was so symbolic of a whole era owes penn state football. That was being taken down while the litigation was still ongoing so it made it looked like one thing which of course angered a lot of fans. A lot of alumni makes me very angry There are a couple of things going on first of all. We don't know all the facts. Seems like we keep making knee jerk reactions to your say where caving to pressure because now looked like hence status jumping to conclusion based off of the free report former. Fbi director louis. Freeh puts the blame on joe paterno and three other top penn state officials for covering up jerry sandusky child-sex-abuse but you also had a chance that that because of what had happened with jerry sandusky with sensitivity with compassion for his victims. How can you keep a statue up of a head coach. Who at the time had a defensive coordinator who was sexually abusing young boys. I mean it was just so complicated and the thing in all of this was chopra. Paternal never particularly liked the statue. It shows with this bronzed finger looking like he's giving the number one pose which was like so anti turnover in that it made. It looked like he was boasting but so many people were clinging to the statute because it was their connection to joe paterno in that penn state era of football that they knew in loved. But you then wonder like. Should we ever put statues of anyone. Can you celebrate a person in only honor part of them or does a statue represents kind of this all encompassing being. And that's what makes it so risky when he decided to put a statue like this up because even when this thing came out in two thousand and one show paternal is legacy everything. It looked bulletproof so

"Tell us how you got your start in aviation a pay I grew up as an air. Force brat flu beef forty seven feet fifty twos in a one So i was always excited about aviation from that. My dad passed away when i was a teenager so I think that kind of cemented the hero worship for for my dad. You know in those days. And i just you know as always we we moved from you know we were on the air force base for a while we lived in iowa and then kansas after my dad passed away to live where my mom's parents were in a big open skies. And you're always looking up to see what was going on up there because you know. I was just kind of bored in small town. Kansas and My uncle taught me how to fly. When i was nineteen years old Down in rockport texas. What kind of airplane of piper warrior and I just you know even though it was a little stressful because he was kind of a screamer why it was it was i love going flying solo but when he was in the airplane i was just a little bit stressed out but i still have his His voice in the site you know in in my ear every time i'm not lined up for the centerline of it in even in a seven thirty seven. Now it's get get lined up with. What's wrong with you that just use a spring but it was i'm just curious You have a relative teaching to fly when you're not in the airplane. What was your relationship with him like. Yeah so i was staying in his In his house and that was it was just. It was a little stressful. But i in there were. There were times where he was like these. You really want to do this one. She just leave and things like that but when it was all said and done he was really proud. And i was proud and But i was his first and last student because nobody else wanted to deal with them. I guess but he. He came to my winging ceremony when i became a pilot And he was just proud a you know it is just the way life is. Sometimes you know it's not always good. It's not always bad. There's just getting bad mixed in but But i learned a lot. You know and i and i got the i got the license in like fifty five hours. I was there for two months from from zero to two private pilot just in the summer of nineteen eighty five. So that's the way to do a t to go. Full bore fly every day. If you can and get it out of the way right. Yeah and i saw that with the students that i flew with later so a way You go to college. I went to college at the university. Kansas and i was living in kansas can think. And why. why am i here in the first place. That's my mom's hometown. But i found out that the university of kansas was ranked in the top ten for aerospace engineering. And i was like well. That's pretty cool. You know so. That's that's what i wanted to learn. It was a tough program. But i got through it Actually with honors But i decided to join nato. otc The air force at the time was They weren't offering pilot slots Two people who were getting scholarships Be an engineer for the air force. And then you would compete for a scholarship later in a it just seemed a little too much ambiguity. Matt's of navy was saying we'll we'll give scholarship. You can figure out if you're gonna be a pilot toward the end of the program in You know it's needs of the navy. And all that kind of stuff so so turned out. When i got selected if i they told me i was going to be a pilot and then like they. You know four weeks later. I haven't graduated yet. They said well. We're sorry that we were badly in the back sears. Nfo's nfl stance from naval flight. Officer so i you know. Tail between my legs went down to pensacola tried to figure out a way to become a pilot and they said no dice Were just short on. Nfo's and that's in. You have a minute refractory error in your left dive. It's keeping you from minnesota. But i was twenty twenty in gotten in like six months before six months after they probably would let me go to the pilot program but at the time they just they were starving for back. Seniors in that may have been a blessing in disguise. Because like a year after. I got down there. They cut the bottom third out of pilot training navy wide because of the cold war drawdown and there were guys get sent home. We're getting cintas supply or know. They were surface warfare. That kinda thing and so it was. It was kind of an ugly time in the navy late eighties early nineties.

Oh my god he's dead. Police rushed to the scene there on the floor of the tan double wide trailer late thirty two year old. Stephen minot a forty five caliber gunshot wound in his forehead. Barbara rogers stood beside his lifeless body. The firearm nearby barbara immediately claimed that she was innocent stating that her and many. Oh were deeply in love barbara. Even used stevens last name though they were not legally married. Despite her protestations barbara was arrested and police began their investigation. But perhaps barbara's protests weren't as far fetched as police had assumed a cursory internet search revealed. That barbour stephen were active members of an online cult. Run by a woman named sharee schreiner. The detectives searched for answers would lead investigators down a dark path filled with coded messages alien lizards and vampires. Hi i'm greg paulson.

Wherever you're listening it really does help. This is our first and only episode on sherry schreiner. The woman behind a virtual reptilian kalt will explore her troubled childhood as well as how schreiner used the internet to cultivate her following sherry. J. schreiner was born on december eleventh. Nineteen sixty five in cleveland. Ohio into a devout god fearing christian family. She attended private christian schools and went to church every sunday. Surrounded by discussions of jesus and religion. Schreiner never remembered a time when she wasn't thinking about discussing reading the bible while sherry was a very private person of the information that's known about our comes from her self published books in one titled bible codes revealed the coming. Ufo invasion sherry claimed that she was proclaiming. God's name by the age of two and she was reborn by the age of five however also at that time she developed horrific haunting night terrors which she described in vivid detail sherry wrote. A figure would stand at the foot of my bed and stare at me as i lay trying to sleep. Fear and sheer terror with grip every muscle and bone. I had it was at least seven feet tall dark and evil. I would shrivel under my blankets and pray for it to go away. I did not know what it was other than feeling it was some evil being straight from hell and i certainly did not know what it wanted. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she has done a lot of research for this show. thanks greg. The national sleep foundation explained that night terrors can have several causes including extreme tiredness lack of sleep or stress. It is quite possible that stress of her family's devout contributed to share his night terrors. As a child though. We don't know the specifics of the situation. Perhaps sheri's family put pressure on her to adhere to a specific code of conduct prescribed by their faith sheri's terrors continued to haunt her well into her adolescence as the years passed. She had a revelation. These visions were not some anonymous shadowy figures but evil demons sent by lucifer to kill her. She proclaimed herself lucifer's arch enemy. Though she hid this title from those around her by the age of twelve sherry had read the bible from front to back and was particularly interested. In the book of revelation the final book of the christian bible known for its strange imagery and apocalyptic predictions schreiner was fascinated by the concepts of the end of days and the arrival of the anti christ but despite shriners deep immersion in biblical studies. She hated her religion. She disagreed with much of christianity and brandon herself a nonconformist becoming the black sheep of her family but sherry shifted her biblical prophecy studies to the side while she focused on higher education she dreamed of pursuing a career in television news broadcasting
Must Have Shrubs With Ken Druse
"This time to try to narrow down our list of must have shrubs to the real standouts and tell us why i can margaret. I know you'll never get it to three. It's funny you said that because when we first started talking about it you said one and both of us that we can't pick one. Can we even pick three right So which of your books. We always give copy of what looks only talk on the show at with the transcript of the show. What do you think i mean. Is this one for shade gardeners this one for. What's this one for a cheat garden shade garden would be a good a good one. That's always a huge hit so good good. Good good So we're at you. And i in our lives are at what a another expert friend says is the shrub season of our lives which is sort of rather than crawling around dealing with lots of fussy high maintenance perennials. It's kinda great to have some big fillers like mature shrubs to do a lot of showing off and yet not ask a lot of us. So where do we begin. What's a shroud. i guess. Well a strobe is a multi stemmed plant of woody plant and i guess that's sort of describes a tree would have one trunk one stem herbaceous plants die down to the ground soft tissues and shrub is a woody plant. That is bushy bush. I don't like that word for describing his trip but it's rub can be bushy. Okay okay and we should say before we start naming our desert island trump's that we didn't include khanna first because really that can that's a whole other conversation So many shapes and colors and textures among those so Do you remember your first. Trump been is still there and is it a favourite or it didn't make the list. Well i get. I get to pick three right okay. You want me to tell you. My first well you said conifers. And i'm not going to talk about converse but my one of my favorites shrubs is. Evergreen is a what is called a broad lead evergreen and it's a bucks it's a kind of boxwood. I have too many of them. And it's a box with semper barons. Graham blondie yes and it is one of the most colome ner plants i've ever seen really but It's a shrub and it's minor. There's probably i have some. That are like seven feet tall and fifteen inches. Wanted if you can imagine that. They're they're like punctuation marks. You know they're like exclamation marks in the garden. And as i said. I have too many because when i first got i always wanted them and then a nursery not too far from here a lot of them. Nobody bought them and the price kept going lower and lower and lower. I think i have made. I may have twentieth them when they were eight dollars a piece. Wow that's a lot of exclamations. A long time. I know and i i also keep moving them. I just moved three boy Son they want son you know. I'm sure they would love son. But i have all my box with. I don't have any full sun. But i have some of my boxwoods in quite a bit of shade and they stay calendar. Sometimes i tie them up because the snow might split them a little bit or you know splayed them. They don't break. But i do. I do tai the ones that are floppy up for the winter. And i love it if you says boxwood called graham. Landy columbia okay. I don't actually have any evergreen things at all on my list whether broadleaf or coniferous And i was thinking when we started this conversation today on the phone that my first trump passion was the genus vibe burnham. In back in the day we had a lot of divi burnham's like the double file and so forth that turned out to be kind of invasive and a lot of areas of the country. So i don't grow those anymore. But lately i've been cultivating more and more native ones like the maple leaf a full liam then tatum the arrow would and so forth So that was kind of where my shrub journey began. But the thing. I have the most of you said you have a lot of grand. Blondie is winter. Barry holly speaking of things. And i don't know what came over me. I mean it was the birds that came over me early on here in this rural place having been grown up in the city. You know coming here meeting all the birds and knowing that learning that they liked some of them liked fruit and that the native hollies were one of the ways to fuel the migration in the wintertime. And i planted about forty five or fifty of them in three very large groups in different directions toward the perimeter of the property but in different directions where i can see them from key windows in the house at a distance in the winter and all different varieties and Big ones small ones. I got a lot of fruit and birds a like very much. And yeah so waxwings and robins like in you know hunt flocks at one hundred or whatever at a time will come in right around now november ish and again to pick over at At the first snowfall and so forth and they'll strip them all pretty early on but one trick with winterbourne. Hollies if you want some that will last longer for your visual interest. The non red varieties they. The birds leave them longer. They're not as interested in them. So many yellowish orange ones and so the lighter colored ones and the winter
Hormel Wraps Fans in Bacon-Scented Masks
"Tomorrow is you know what it is it's Halloween for some adults. Candy isn't much of a treat though as we age many of US start to crave savory over sweet for some that's a pungent blue cheese for others. The treat of choice is bacon. We all know the person who cannot resist the sizzle. And ascent of perfectly frying Bacon, which is why this weekend some people are certain to be wearing the latest swag for Hormel foods. That's the nine billion dollar Minnesota Company that owns Hormel Black Label Bacon beginning back in mid October hormel began promotion giving special face masks to a select number of pork. Loving fans what made these masks so special. Well, each ask was infused. With a set of Bacon. Presumably some people would love to have that delicious sent with him night and day regardless of whether there's a strip of the real stuff anywhere nearby Hormel ran its oddball campaign through the twenty eight. The company says millions of people requested masks. Obviously, the campaign was intended as an attention getter. Those requesting masks were encouraged to pose the HASHTAG breathable Bacon on social media and Hormel pushed winners to post photos of themselves wearing the masks, which, of course, featured Bacon Strips on a black background. The campaign had a serious side though for every mask set requested for promised to donate a meal to the Anti Hunger nonprofit feeding America up to ten thousand meals. Could also have been seen as the brands way to encourage people to mask up the message from Hormel though was next Nick Schweitzer senior brand manager of Hormel black. Label. Bacon. Said on a podcast called Agra talk we're not trying to fuel any debate on whether we love or hate masks or if you should wear them or not. But he admitted that Hormel wanted to learn whether they could successfully infuse bacon sent into masks and quote inspire some folks to wear them. Okay then. So Howard Bacon sales faring with everyone eating comfort food at Home Schweitzer says Bacon sales have never been stronger prior to the pandemic after years of so-called Bacon Mania sales of cured pork had been on a slow decline according to market researchers statistics still the average American eats several pounds of Bacon a year. Now, while that pandemic induced stress eating, it appears we're eating even more and apparently there's something about pork that inspires companies to play with their food. Oscar Mayer is famously known for its wiener. Mobile, which I debuted in nineteen thirty six away for the brand to bring some humor and happiness to a country reeling from the depression according to The New York Times Cove nineteen prompted Craft Heinz Jones Oscar. Mayer. To pull the giant rolling hotdogs off the road this year temporarily. But the fleet of six twenty, seven foot yellow and orange trucks are now on the road across the country again albeit with PPA in. Social distancing rules in place by the way the company says anyone relishing a visit with the wiener mobile can just requests the rolling Pantheon of lunch meat by contacting the company and okay the Wiener. Mobile. Obviously promotes hotdogs but I'm pretty sure love for the wiener mobile spills over into Oscar. Mayer's Bacon sales after all the brand is the nation's second biggest bacon sellers to reports back at Hormel. Well, the breathable bacon mask is hardly the Minnesota brands first pork. Inspired stunt for years back for black label invented a motorcycle that ran on Bacon Grease staffers drove it across the country to film a mini documentary with consumers and yes. Even the exhaust smell like Bacon Hormel. SNICK. Schweitzer says that motorcycle so far no plans to build it in volume took a Lotta Greece to fuel that cross country trip about those delicious masks. Hormel Schweitzer says it takes a lot of bacon grease to get these masks to smell this. Good. Maybe they could try motorcycle helmets with all this humor. If the pandemic boosted bacon sales brands that sell the stuff, want to make sure those sales don't flag. Of course, the last thing they want us for Americans to return to good for you plant based diets, readable bacon masks, or just one small way to keep the momentum of and keep those pork sales sizzling along.
Groundcovers With Ken Druse
"You know that I used to love for its variegated sort of silvery and green leaves. kind of almost looks like an IV ish Gr-. vining but low prostrate thing lamb the astrum galley. Dolan Yellow Archangel which you know thirty or more years ago when I planted it, it was like a coveted thing. And now it's on the invasive list in the North West and it's invading into woodland's as the climate warms. In. The Northeast and you're starting to see it on the invasive list in in new areas and so forth and I, have suddenly forty miles of it in my garden because it no longer stays. You know within a reasonable range. So I mean maybe we should I say what's the ground cover and what do we want to use anyway, right Okay The me okay. I. Think a ground cover is a plant that increases in numbers over time but does not run away or spread too fast it's usually we'd suppressing that's what we hope and we have a couple of those. And you think of ground cover is something you can walk on, but there's not a whole lot of plants that will tolerate. Being walked on besides grass lawn but a ground cover is anything that could do what I suggested I. You know spread a bit and suppress weeds and it could be seven feet tall. It can be a big SHRUB and I've seen that. But. I. Guess. What do you think is that just about it? Yeah, and and like what you said you know we think when we hear if you hear the phrase ground cover, you would think, oh, turf can walk on it but there really ain't no such things I mean there are so few things that can tolerate that I mean maybe creeping timing lawn, you could technically walk on but you know really almost none of them so So yeah. So it can be any hide I completely agree it's it's it's maybe a living mulch is. Is the. cloudy a west of landscape designer of fido studios. She says, plants are the MULCH. You know that's one of her key phrases that we need to remember and I think in a way. Like I have a lot of masses of ground cover. Like Geranium Macrocosm, the big route Geranium. Yeah and doesn't seed around doesn't it is rise Amadeus, but the rise zones don't spread sideways underground. It's of like it sounds big route on the surface. So, I find that he's unit, you can just edit it. You can pull out a bunch and throw it away and so forth but it gives you weed suppression that you were talking about right it's it's it's a living mulch It shades the ground under the trees and shrubs. Moishe helps keeps moisture and etcetera etcetera, but it's not so rambunctious that it's troublemaker It won't jump out of where it was where you intended to be. Does that make sense? Yes. There was one plant here. Twenty six years ago that some. People before I bought this place planted and I'm still. I'm still a ratting in this year. It was it was a ground cover this year. I think it almost eight the house. And the it's. Tonia. Oh Yeah Tuna however that Chameleon plant that's a nightmare. That's actually one of the most popular stories on my website ever is one of us visited from Google searches is about can I get? How can I get rid of? You know how can I kill this plant still full fill fold on Mare plant? Yeah. We've mentioned it before it is nightmare plant but but the draining macaroni him by comparison, it only exists in the places I, put it in though I started with a few plants I now have large expanses of it. It means that I don't have to weed. Those beds as often nearly evergreen even here in zone five B and you know it just does a really good We'd suppressing kind of a job. But then there's like the Lambda Strom. which wants to take over the earth and. So. Forth. So then you're you participated in its takeover. Bid And so. There's lots of things and we should say, of course, the disclaimer as ever. What is invasive in one place or becoming invasive is again, the temperature shift the the weather the climate shifts is.

The Now-extinct Castoroides Was a Bear-sized Beaver
"Brain stuff Lauren Vogel. Bam here. mammoths, mastodons and Sabertooth hats weren't the only giants roaming ancient America. The Pleistocene was a global epoch kicked off two point six, million years ago. It lasted right up. Until Earth's most recent ice age ended about eleven thousand, seven, hundred years before the present day. When you live in a cold environment, being big has its advantages. Large animals tend to conserve body heat more easily than smaller ones. This is one of the major reasons why colossal mammals were so widespread during the frigid pleistocene. CASTA Roy was very much a product of its time. The largest rodent in Pleistocene north. America, this very big beaver grew to more than seven feet long from tail to stout that's over two meters and could have weighed as much as two hundred and twenty pounds or a hundred kilos or more. Rivaling the American black bear in size casta royalties utterly dwarfed the Beavers that lived today modern Eurasian, and American beaver species clock in just around three feet long a bit less than a meter and way somewhere between twenty nine, seventy, seven pounds. That's about thirteen to thirty five kilos. Proportionately castaways had a narrower tail and shorter legs albeit with bigger hind feet than its extant relatives. We also know that it didn't eat the same foods. What he plans are a crucial part of every living beavers diet. The critters use chisel like incisors that's their front teeth to gnaw through bark and take down trees. But. Even though castaways incisors grew to be a whopping six inches or fifteen centimeters long the teeth had dollar edges by comparison. Dental differences would have made it a lot harder for Castro to eat tree bark and indeed it looks like this was not really on their menu. Using isotopic signatures and castaways teeth from Ohio and the Yukon a twenty nineteen study found that the giant beaver mostly eight softer aquatic plants. The findings say a lot about the Rodin's ecological niche and why it might have died out. For starters, castaways probably didn't build dams. Unusual. About that the earliest known beavers appeared during the easing. A which lasted between about fifty, six, thirty, four, million years ago. New evidence suggests that the wood harvesting specialists came along much later perhaps around twenty million years ago. In all likelihood, these bark fanciers used would as a food source before any of them started constructing dams. Since as fed on aquatic plants, its survival would have depended on wetland habitats. The animal was highly successful for a time cast Roy these fossils representing at least two distinct species have been documented in the Great Plains the Great Lakes, the American South Alaska and numerous Canadian provinces. Unfortunately for the mega sized beaver north. America. became warmer and drier after the last ice age ended wetlands grew scarcer as a result. Today's beavers used their logging skills to reshape the land around them so that it meets their needs with some well placed would in the nearest stream, a determined beaver engineer brand-new Pons. Yet if Castro Reuters didn't harvest would or build dams, it couldn't followed suit. So theoretically decline in natural wetlands left the giant beaver more susceptible to extinction. Last of these creatures perished around ten thousand years ago.
Scale, Proportion and choosing Art for your Walls
"Is how an item relates to the size of the room while proportion is the relationship between items. For example, we've all been to a home that has an overstuffed SOFA in a smaller sized living room there just doesn't seem to be enough room to move about comfortably. It's because the scale is wrong the smaller the Rome is the more petite or delicate the furnishings and decor should be. If you have a smaller square foot home or have normal sized ceilings. The scale of things should be generally smaller than that of a home with nine or twelve foot ceilings and a bigger footprint. Will what does that mean when you're at that typical store deciding which planter to get and you have a three thousand, five, hundred square foot home with nine foot ceilings you almost always would choose the largest one available in this scenario. Now remember standing there at the store you might not fully understand your scale at home because you are in the store. So your eyes are registering that planter next to the planters beside it. That, planter might look so huge because it's sold next to smaller ones but once you get at home with your tall ceilings and oversized couch it feels proportionate. It feels right. It doesn't look huge at all when you get home because the scale of everything is bigger. The answer might be different however, if you already have a large planter in your shopping for two more that together with the largest one will become a cluster. In which case you need to think of the proportion of the larger one in relation to the two, you'll be buying not all three should probably be the same size unless you're lining them up down the sidewalk for example, to make that sort of repetitive statement, which can be very attractive. So. In this example, I explained proportion referring to the size of the two new planters and how it relates to the existing planter in the room. We have tall ceilings but a relatively small footprint. So my answer to everything everywhere to myself in our case, both indoors and outdoors is small footprint item. But Tall, you've all seen tall and skinny planters just because you're room is small and you don't have much square footage it doesn't mean you have to forego the things you want. It just means you might need to think of the puzzle differently. Take, for example, our master bedroom. The only thing that makes it a master is that it has a really large walking closet with a window and a decent size master bathroom. It's not the size of the room itself that makes it a master. We have nine foot tall ceilings and three windows. So it certainly light and bright, but the footprint itself is small. Are King. Size bed measures, seven feet, and some change including the frame. I would call it not proportionate to our bedroom because that is eleven feet deep leaving a walkway clearance of just four feet between the bed and the wall. But I, need my space when I sleep and so I decided I would take my space and reasons senses and figure this out. We needed a solution to hold the cable box for the flat panel TV mounted on the wall at the end of the bed with just four feet of walkway putting credential. Here was not an option. It was just too tight and didn't allow enough passage between the two. I searched the world over for something wall mounted that can hold a few books o'clock plant and the cable box discreetly. After months of looking I found a company out of California. Called would waves. To My delight this company lines up with my love of products that serve more than one purpose to conserve resources while saving space. From mid century modern to coastal and Beechy. Guys have options and man do I love options for rooms with a small footprint? I cannot say enough how much I love a wall mounted credentials at nightstand or dual purpose shelf they have mirrors with lights on them. They have wall mounted bookcases with a floating nightstand and so much more. You can find them on the interwebs at would waves dot com we chose a bed frame with a higher tufted headboard and that means part of it is art or interest in the room because of its height and texture in scenarios like this you'll want to avoid too many items on the walls which can easily end up looking junkie or like too much clutter. Smaller frames can be clustered together in a grid so it's clean and polished. Remember to leave blank space in each room both on the wall, and above furniture a room looks cluttered when every square inch of it is filled to the brim, the I needs room to rest. So provide it by leaving some services bear and make sure you can see the baseboards at several spots in each room.
Tips and Tricks: How to create a DIY teleprompter
"For our listeners. So stay tuned after the show for more. Hey this is Larry Becker and I'm filling in for the vacationing Jefferson Graham on talking tech on the author of the recently released book. Great on camera and today I've got some cool tips in insights for those of you. That need to deliver a message on camera. And what I want to talk to you about is teleprompter options today it yeah I've worked with traditional teleprompters and I've worked in a studio with a teleprompter operator great experience but most of us don't have that luxury. So these days what I use is an IPAD. So I wanNA tell you a little bit about some of the software options that you have and some of the hardware options and some twists on this that are a little bit different than you might expect I do teleprompter operator stuff different than most. People I know but it works great and it might even work great for you. I've been using the same piece of software since it came out the software that I like is called teleprompter plus and that's the plus sign in the number three. So teleprompter plus three is the APP that I use. I can't tell you how much it is because I bought it way back when and now when I go to the apple APP store, it just says oh Larry you already bought this do you want to download again but? It won't tell me the price. So I, don't know how much it is. It may be a free download within APP purchases I don't know but teleprompter plus three from a company called brain is what I use and the reason that I like it is it does everything you need to tell proper to do. You can make the size of the type bigger or smaller. You can make it scroll faster or slower. You can remote control it from a keyboard and you can do a lot of these things remote control. From keyboard like jump to the next paragraph or jumped to the previous paragraph, you have to put in points for that but is all really straightforward and very easy to do and run, and then if you actually have a real legit teleprompter hardware setup on your camera, like with that forty five degree angle see-through mirror glass. Then what you have to have is you have tabular teleprompter image flipped to mirror view and it can do that, and so I've done that over the years with this piece of software works just great. The next thing that you could use is a very popular application and I don't use this. But when it came out, I thought about it for a little while and then I ended up not getting it and it is called prompt smart pro prompt smart pro. Now, it used to be like twenty bucks I think now they're doing subscription and you gotta Pay Forty Bucks a year for it, and they have a whole lot of extras and features and cool stuff going on with it, and it can do everything that tell prompt plus three can do plus. It listens to you as you read the script and it advances the script based on you reading the script that's pro and a con all in one because if you go off script or if you screw up and you want to go back a little bit, you can't do that easily with this particular piece of software. Now, you can turn off where it listens to you and just use prompt smart pro with your remote Bluetooth Keyboard. So those are a couple different applications you can use them on the IPAD but make sure that you pay attention to how I use it. I do not have one of those expensive. Forty five degree angle mounted on the camera teleprompter setups. The reason that I don't have that I don't use that is because I discovered a longtime ago that if I five or six feet away seven feet away from the camera and the teleprompter is just below the Camera Lens and I'm reading from that teleprompter you can't tell I'm looking just below the Camera Lens. Now, if the cameras really close to me, you might be able to see that I'm looking right below the Lens but in the studio setup where I used to work in my home studio, the cameras always like five six. Seven feet away from me and with the camera that far away and the prompter, my ipad just below the camera, all I need to do is put my ipad on an Easel
No Look Pass
"The NBA Wmba seasons have started back up I've only caught one game so far, but like many basketball fans I'm looking forward to the tempo and intensity. This season will brink. It's a lot more on the line. Players are bringing that to the game. Don't get me wrong. I'm looking forward to some highlights to Dunks, lobs crossovers, but is something about that. No look pass that true finesse to the gain. Some of the greatest. No look passes of all time. John Stockton Steve Nash Steph Curry Arguably. Rajon, Rondo Carl Malone. It's nothing like seeing a player in all confidence. Take that ball up the court. Drive into the paint in dish it off with a no look. Pass finished the player scores. In the NBA Dunks are expected, but is that no look pass that catches you off guard, which is why many have not mastered it. Two things have to happen at were four. No look pass to occur successfully. Fars the passer has to have foresight as to where the recipient will be. This is what makes the no look. Pass so smooth is just not the no look, but it's the no look with the understanding and awareness of where the recipient is going. The recipient must be ready. This can go either two ways. They can catch it or they don't, and they don't. is nothing short of a disappointment, because if caught ninety percent of the time is buckets. The second thing that must happen in order for the no look pass to be successful. The player has to be emotion. When you're in motion, you're not stopped or stationary. There's momentum being exerted. And, being emotion requires you to stay focused on what's in front of you while also anticipating what's coming at you and for the big man holding down the paint? This is not easy. These guys are huge six foot eight seven feet now is one thing to run the baseline, but a completely different one to run the court trail the pain, not clobbering the man in front of you while possibly anticipating a quick dish. From the point, Guard So many factors to account for in a lot of trust going on there. Is Not easy, even though it looks easy, you may be saying tiffany. How does this apply to me? I don't play basketball. You're right, but you might be working two jobs to make ends meet or staying at home, juggling the demands of your kids or carrying the load of school. Whatever it is, keep going stay emotion. God the Ultimate Point Guard sees it all in every now and then. He might throw you a no look pass. Will you be ready.
Cory Schlesinger On Isometric Training
"Welcome to another episode of the show. I know you've probably if you've been following this show, you've probably caught a couple of McEwen as that I've put on and decided, it's time to not just do them myself. Because I enjoy answering questions, but in addition to have to kind of check and make sure I'm not double or triple covering old question. I just thought it'd be more fun to get more minds involved in this segment of the show and I always enjoy whether it be an episode with three people or four, generally speaking the more the more people in the conversation. It's always a good thing and. And also I just love talking to Corey. So I wanted to get him involved on the the QNA. Here just a quick back onto for those you guys who aren't too familiar with corey his work. He is the head, strength and conditioning coach for the Phoenix Suns. He's spent the last or the previous three years as the head of basketball athletic performance for Stanford University. He was involved at a couple a D. One schools before that he's also trained pro athletes Olympians, and it's just overall as a coach in his overall a coach who? Is incredibly creative, but also is incredibly practical and athletes centered in the way that he views train. The training of the athlete core is a guy who not only has a great mind for the strength element things, but also played basketball in the college level and is continually. Looking at a wider more zoomed out view of what what training athletes means in context of becoming a better player. So for the show we took you guys as questions on social media, a lot of them were directed towards US specifically core issues on athlete autonomy in his training system, but also some great questions on isometrics foot training. Combining strength with sports, skill, training and more This was a really fun show and I will say definitely the questions are probably a little bit more geared towards cores neck of the woods, which is awesome. I mean honestly I I would just as well consider this a second interview with Corey just as much as a Q. A.. It's just fun to answer these questions alongside him so for episode to eleven. Let's get onto this QNA with myself and Corey slesinger. I. We got a special QNA today. I was sick of just doing myself and some super excited. Have Corey here so welcome to the Q. and Corey. Hey glad to be able. All right well, so let's get rolling. Thanks Irwin. Who who pop questions I? Think we just ask for my instagram this time instead some different mediums. Usually, that's where most of them come from anyway, so ause kick it off. Acceleration Randy Petersen thanks for the question he asked about the utility of ground-based strength, tumbling, crawling ruling, wrestling with pro athletes, and so maybe this could be framed to like a college versus pro, or as he worked through the levels What do you think about that one corey in in different populations. You know it's it's interesting because everyone, no matter what if you're professionalize your amateur? They all fit on a spectrum of their own developments, so like taking a. Broad like. Tumbling good for professional athletes, yes, if they're lacking certain things and the same of amateurs. Yes, if they're lacking certain things, but we gotta look at it more so in my opinion is you gotta? Just do it needs Alice. And where that athlete is currently, you know it's not this cutoff point where all of a sudden they're professionals. They don't need to do XYZ or there. Is there an amateur, so they have to do x Y and Z. You have beautifully gifted genetic athletes who don't eat a lot of art work to be hundred percent hottest, and so then you skip a lot of those steps, or you have more strategies in place to keep them. Them playing or keep them doing the things that make them awesome on the court or on the field, and then you have some that are like well. They're grinders are the ones that constantly need that training stimulus or that controlled stimulus to help them develop or stay more robust than those athletes in the woods yet? Maybe they do any more quote, unquote, ground-based work, or they need more skill acquisition, not from a skill perspective on the court, but just from a human perspective, and that's where for me. It's everybody across the board on your child won't do your DNS in stages, or you're an elite level athlete, who seven foot tall and do a backflip duck. All of them need some form or fashion of. Tools that will allow them to get in and out of scenarios via falling which everyone in some point we'll go through or you know being ground-based and being able to stay able is and being able to express that or not only express forces, but also be able to hush this to be able to sustain them to be able to of our accepts them into. Be Able to redirect them, and that's where I think there's a question that was presented earlier. The France Bosh you. How does this influence? I guess some of these things. Just self organizing and that's what I think. Tumbling willing comes into the equation as Yom. You're just giving them exposures them. How to self organize in areas that might not be. Normative values are a plane basketball on a hardwood surface which requires as a ton of stiffness. How about we actually teach them how to fall and get more compliance so they can keep receiving

"Shooting percentage from a seven foot power forward Dirksen sure-fire whole Famer who single-handedly was responsible for the term stretch for and eventually stretch five. His thirty one thousand points are good for six all time in NBA history. The guys in front of him Kareem Karl Malone Kobe Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. But more importantly, and more impressively the seven foot. German is eleventh all time in three pointers, maintenance, gay history in a world we're spreading the court is the most important things in basketball, Dirk, ushered in the new era. We're big guys thought of more than bruisers. In fact, he made some players completely useless. You know, he took away the jobs in of the future Antonio Davis's, Dennis, rodmans, and Charles Oakley. Those guys were stars in their time and useless in a modern day. NBA dark changed the game forever while also turning into one of the more durable stars the league's ever seen. I'm going to say this preface, all of this with Tim Duncan was not considered from my list because he was born in the US territory. There might have been a conversation there, but the tenders in my book, our Akeem and Steve Nash with space left for some of the guys like Jaanus and Joel Embiid and a couple of other players. It literally amazes me that in the last thirty seconds of every one of your arguments you, you continue to throw out my different Trump cards. It's it's unreal. Tim. Duncan was also going to be someone that I would consider, but I had that question. Do you consider him an international player considering from the US Virgin Islands? I personally would. It's not America. It's not the United States and might be territory chore. That's fine. We'll take Tim Duncan out of this, but you mentioned another name in there, and that's Steve Nash. We focus on big men when you compare Kemin Dirk, because they okay. They played the same position differently. Sure. But you have to take Steve Nash into account. This guy transformed the way guards played in the NBA. His passing was unbelievable. His back toback MVP seasons were something that made west coast basketball for people on the east coast must watch TV. Those Phoenix Suns teams that he played on, we're simply outstanding, even though they didn't get it done in the end, you talk about a guy. That's a sure fire hall of Famer, Steve Nash surefire hall of Famer more MVP's than Dirk when it comes to regular season used to be Dirk teammate, which is an interesting bit of trivia for you, and it's amazing that those Mavericks didn't go further back then. But then that kind of brings in the question Dirks ability to win, Dirk success in the playoffs hasn't exactly been stellar one NBA championship and albeit a surprising one over. For that first year of LeBron that dream team scenario that he had in Miami with that break three. Other than that, Dirk has floundered somewhat in the NBA. What does he have? One other finals appearance. It's hard for me to say that the best international player ever is a guy with one title, and I'll make this a rings argument. That's perfectly fine. Akeem has to Nash has zero. So I'd go Hakeem Dirk Nash one-two-three. Okay. And in terms of the Dunkin thing, I will say it's not fair to include him because that is a real Pandora's box because guys like Patrick Ewing were born in Jamaica, Dominique Wilkins this born in France. Kyrie Irving was born in Australia with it's just it's too much in terms of the actual argument here. All I have to say is a seven foot power forward a thirteen time. All star twelve time. All NPA an MVP NBA champion of finals MVP you say that he floundered in the playoffs, but he actually wasn't NBA NBA finals MVP. The list goes on and the true more for special Dirk is can be said like this since coming into the league, Dirk, we've seen countless players touted as the next Eric. None of them have been anything more than a pale imitation of the man..

A really cool thing about some jumping spiders. She at least thirty different species which practice bondage with females on this is actually quite good way of not letting them attack EU, and so they sort of tied them up in silk before sex. So you cripple the women by tying at your Weber tying her legs together, and then you, you'll give me a look like that unfair, but she is going to eat you. It's just a typical on the feminism.

How do you think I got married. Married again. Killing? Nope, it. Wow, that is. Yeah, that's something, yeah. Yeah, it's Hyundai and they actually tested this because a scientist wanted to work out if the ones who were unable to spend these things go eat them regularly. And so again, they did this very cool experiment where they dental silicone into that web spinning apparatus, which means that they can't use it anymore. And the way they mobilized by they're able to do this is they put them in the freezer and apparently that temporary immobilizes spider just so interest always do this. Okay. So those jumpings sometimes is the the singing. Basically the rub the body segments together makes vibrations which get communicated to the female and the females here through slit in their legs, which quite cool. I spider has his own special embellishments that he adds. So seven percent of courtships whether happens and in the mail being eaten, which is not great odds, but not terrible, but researchers, then incapacitated the males and stop them from singing. I don't know how. Whether they're just, you know, put that made the body Steph as they couldn't rub the sections together. Shaming say that was really out of tune or something. Something still singing, and if the miles up to sing borrow searches, thirty percent get heated. Three separate experiments researchers have stopped male spiders from not being eaten in that court shows. It's a bit of a theme. Researchers asked the bad guys. About it. So there are there are actually animals in the wild, but sort of wear makeup themselves without scientists, applying it to them. I think we've spoken before about there was that vulture, the bearded vulture rubs its head and its bottom in soil, and it sort of gets its Faysal scruffy gives it a reddish Brown, Hugh that it then uses to attract and probably date possibly, but relevant to the jumping spider of the fact. There are assassin bugs that go round wearing the dead carcasses of the aunts that they've killed as a what the article said is sort of backpack. So they just wear a bunch of them and it's to trick jumping spiders into no eating them. So it's a backpack of camouflage and this is make-up Assane, right?

Yeah, just like Spiderman so they can just stop halfway through jumping there, decide it's bad idea. It slowdown dramatic econ. They and they always them into it to make sure they don't massively crash land. So if you just jumped with no dragline, then you face first teeth out. But with the dragline they can sort of reorient themselves in the air cover. I read about the dancing. And how evolved because like says you start the end with evolution. And in this article they said that basically you do get them's as a spider on the female is generally not interested, and so you have to do a slightly better dance and then she is interested. And then the next generation does slightly down, but then their generation isn't that interested. So that's why the dunces so long and complicated because basically over the millions and millions of years they've been improving that that's moves. But do they veteran better?

"Free for no guaranteed. Okay. On with the show. Okay. It is time for final fact to the show, and that is Inskeep this week is jumping spiders that were eyeliner a more likely to be eaten by their mate. So the way this works is this is being this is some experiments of being done in a lab in Florida for behavioral ecologist, Lisa Taylor, and she was looking at how jumping spiders kind of flirt with each other. And so if you're by the mail, one of the problems is as of spiders is if you're trying to flirt with the female does sort of an equal chance that show even stead. So I think about one in five, jumping spiders who tried to flirt with females at times, and they tried to read them like those odds. And she just some of them have these really bright red and white stripes on their faces to make himself look a bit toxic. So that doesn't gate and by the main. And so she was like, if I put some eyeliner on there is to cover up these red stripes, they now talk, they'll get eaten. And she said she did find that suddenly they stopped eating eating them. Well, once the strokes were taken, I thought it was the road complexion signifies health. We're noticing the cover is saying, oh, most healthy. Well, it's both is a combination. So red signifies health. So they think, oh, good. I want to shock that also signifies talk city. So they think I don't want to eat it. So that's exactly what you want as a male, see one sex, but you don't wanna be eaten all, read all the time. Evolution doesn't start at the end point. James does that. You're quite right. Just takes time doing works on the now were putting false eyelashes on the top of their heads. Yeah, so they have some of them have these tufts which may indicate genetic fitness. So the gluing little bits of false eyelash onto the top of the heads extra tufts and seeing indicates anything to the females. So the basically making themselves very, very slightly tola to improve. Six. Yeah, it's interesting. Sounds like the tests are aimed at helping a helpless male as in it's trying to because the jumping spider basically doesn't even know which is his own species when he woos. He just whatever he walks up to whichever spider he starts dancing and trying to do even if they can't breed and it leads to nothing. So exerts all this energy for. Idea doesn't just leave nothing. They frequently get eaten because they oppression spider at the wrong species. Yeah, stop lasting. That's like flats with a lion.

Mike, it's amazing which is left to try to tied by the end though you would be. Lyon. I'm reading about how jumping spiders jump having the why they're given that name because they can leap huge heights. I think one was found in the UK recently that could leap six foot, which I think is a record. What I thought was it must be muscular legs that allows a jumping spider to leave, and that's not the case what they do is they segment their muscles into different. So basically they're leg is broken up into two different bids. And the leap comes from them slamming blood into the bottom of their legs, and that just loves them off gives the legs of reaction to jump. It's actual muscle. John must feel really light headed when they do it right because all gun so that that's true, always faint. Do you think every time they jump out. Yeah, must be right. Yeah.

"My name is Dan Schreiber. I am sitting here with Andrew Hunter, Murray, James Harkin, an amateur Kinski. And once again, we have gathered around the microphones with our four favourite facts from the last seven days and in no particular order. Here we go starting with my fact this week. My fact is that the legendary sumo wrestler, my new me Shuhei injected silicone into his scalp so that he could meet the height requirements to become a sumo well. So this was you had to be one hundred seventy three cents a meters told. This was back in the day up until the nineties. So that was the height requirements foot nine. Yeah, I believe that's about nine. Yeah. And so a lot of wrestlers we're very close, five foot eight, five, seven, and they just weren't quite there in seventy two cents. That's what they used to do. This is what this wrestler Shuhei did. He went to a doctor and he had surgically inserted into his scalp a little bag that could be filled with silicon and the silicon would go up to four centimeters high. The other thing that they used to do before the silicon thing was bashed themselves on the head. So they Alemu which would then be just, you know, like an cartoon. Wow. You can't guarantee you're gonna freeze like that? I would. I would concentrate on growing hair instead of beating myself on the head. They push push of ruler down on your head. Yes. All sue most have that quite Flathead don't they? Yeah. Yeah. So this guy, I just wanna Paula jobs if I've pronounced his name wrong. In fact, I'm just going to refer to him by his nickname. I think you should worry about him because he's pretty told these days you in a fight. He's like seven foot tall now it keeps going. No, he doesn't wanna. You get one and then after a while is not enough. Exactly. Yeah. So he has a nickname which he's known by to the fans, which was a note DiPoto translates roughly as department store techniques, so I will refer to him. Why do you think you could say the nickname easier than you can say? My new issue, I actually just flew over that and then headed straight to the department store of techniques, department store of technique. He was an amazing guy, so he was known for using thirty three different. They call Kim rights, which basically finishing moves he did one which was a triple attack force out. So he simultaneously trapped. The guy's leg grabbed another and pushed his head into his chest, the opponents head into the chest. Sorry, what he pushed his opponent's head into his opponent's chat. Yes. So he brought his head down in their wall, tripping him up and while grabbing leg and that's called a triple threat. And. Into into role. So of thing, you trip the move, and then you've been the head down so you don't push the head just straight down, so which means maybe that they then the height requirement. These days you can qualify through speed in jealousy as well as heights or instead of height. Yeah. If you'll really fussed really Gile and tiny.

"Pencil except much pure and by what dimensions are we stacked stacking twenty seven feet isn't it twenty seven feet high and you twenty by twenty wide this big block of graphite and then they bore holes in that war they bored holes and stuck uranium slugs in inside the the pile and what was the purpose of that what is the relationship between these two material the graphite slows the process down enough so that the the neutrons can actually split the uranium atom it's the neutrons are going too fast they sometimes bypass the nucleus ride and three great discoveries by fermi one of them was slow neutrons slow neutron yeah okay but i'm still interested in the university not going kabui so you've got this giant block of graphite and you've got these radioactive slugs in there right so then how do they control that what happens talk a little bit the first thing i did was they they as they were building it they monitored every day how how far the reaction would go so they they could plot on a line when the thing would go critical so they knew that at level fifty seven i think it was it would go critical all right so they so they put in a layer graphite with the holes with the uranium in there and then they would tend to do another one another one they could tell there's more and more neutrons that are being liberated exact it's getting warmer but it's not critical yeah exactly and they had they had control rods made out of cadmium they had discovered the cadmium absorbs neutrons very effectively and so they result the result of that was they would put if things went bad they would stick these cap'n in rob's in and slow the reaction down the fat didn't work they had liquid cadmium buckets of on the top and a couple of guys would douse the whole so what could go wrong wasn't there though the also had a rubber shell built around they had a rubber balloon that they thought they would need because they thought that they might need to evacuate the pile from as much air as possible vacuum out but it turned out given what what they were discovering as they built the pile that they didn't really need that and they never really closed that up so at the fifty six to fifty seven layer as for me predicted calculated the pile go what's the vocabulary here pile went critical into critical and then what happens and then they went critical about three thirty on december second nineteen forty two and they watched it watch the power increase very slowly now this was a very very low power experiment was about a half a walk at at the peak but it took about about twenty eight minutes for to go go to about a half a watt and they were were listening to every time a neutron neutron was released the counters would click and they were hearing the clicks go faster and faster and faster faster in an exponential way and at one point one families colleagues leona livy says when do we get scared and me wave wave trough because he was busy concentrating on on the instruments but then finally he had decided that he had demonstrated there was enough recording of of the of reaction so he called it off and said stop it and they were the roger we can control a sustained reaction yes exactly and if we can do that what can we do if we can do that then we can do two things number one we believe that we can create a real chainreaction explosively which is uncontrolled in which was next step in making the bomb but the other thing that was very important was that this process produces plutonium through very complex series of of of reactions in the uranium it produces plutonium which actually heavier than uranium and the theory was and it turned out to be correct the plutonium would also be a good material to use for nuclear bomb and they didn't weren't sure that uranium would be good or that they would be able to use the uranium so it was very important to find a way to produce plutonium did this predict the ability to harness nuclear power for energy absolutely and did they think about that at the time or was this a bomb project i think that fairly certainly thought that this would be used for electric city in the future he also thought that it will be used for radio isotopes which they.
