"Exploration is dangerous work. There are unknowns challenging landscapes severe weather to contend with, and that's just the tip of the iceberg at extreme locations or just factual, non metaphorical icebergs and everything gets much more difficult. Early. Expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic circles near the north and South Poles were some of the most incredible undertakings in history. Of course there were plenty of failures, but every time someone tried. It helps the people who came after. Learn a little bit more. By the early nineteen hundreds several different parties from many different places had succeeded in exploring the frigid areas and returning to tell the tale. Eight! Adele Tuck was born not too far from this brutal cold, She I opened her eyes in eighteen ninety in Alaska, not far from the city of nome, which is on the West Central Coast at one time. Alaska was known to Americans as seward's folly because Secretary of State William, seward purchased the land from Russia for seven million dollars in eighteen, sixty seven. People thought it was a terrible mistake and a waste of money, but when golden were discovered, there seward was like who's laughing now y'all seward's folly more like seward's stroke of genius that you all were super wrong about L. K. man. We get it. Anyway Alaska would still not even become an official US territory until Ada was a teenager, she was initiate one of the indigenous groups of people native to land. But growing up, she never learned the survival ways and traditions of her tribe. She was raised by missionaries people who moved to the area to set up a school in order to convert people to their religion. It's a circumstance that happened to many native Americans and as a result, many traditions were lost for generations some forever. In school eight learned to read and write English read the Bible and learned cooking and other domestic skills, the reading and writing served her well, but as you might have guessed in a story about exploration, these domestic skills would not go near as far in helping her as more traditional skills like hunting, tracking and survival might have. As a young adult! Sixteen! She married a man named Jack Black. Jiang. Yep. You heard that, right? Jack Black Jack. No. He was not a cartoon outlaw, nor was he a professional poker player. He was a dog musher hauling freight across Alaska on a sled pulled by dogs. Together! They had three kids. Sadly, only one survived a boy named Bennett. But one day, Jack Blackjack left the family high and dry. Up and left her in the middle of nowhere which in Frigid Alaska can be a pretty serious predicament. Though he was not the greatest of guys she did keep his greatest of names and earned her future fame as Ada blackjack. When Jack blackjack deserted her. She was forty miles from their home in known, and she and Ben Walked the entire way back in the bitter Alaskan cold to make matters worse than it was very sick with burke. And infection of the lungs, so ada quite a small woman carried the boy much of the way.

Bathsheba Demuth: Environmental Historian
"This episode of is on Conservation I spoke with author and environmental historian Bethsheba. Demuth Demuth is an assistant professor at Brown University who specializes in the intersection between humans. Ecosystems ideas in history the work that I do as an environmental historian is broadly focused on the North American and Russian Arctic and particularly the relationships between people and animals and people in Ecosystems. More broadly over the past two hundred years or so. We talked over. Skype demuth was in fairbanks as the professor was performing research for her new book. Her first book is titled Floating Coast and Environmental History of the Bering Straits. Npr called it. A quote deeply studied deeply felt book that lays out a devastating complex history of change notes. What faces us now and dares us to imagine better in quote as we proceed and get into this interview. I will note that I spoke with Professor Demuth while she was at the university library so it can be a little loud in the background at times. It's a busy place. I can promise you however that this will be one of the most compelling and interesting accounts of the history of whaling that you had ever you look so cold yes. It's a little chilly up here. What's the what's the weather like right? Now it's actually a pretty Balmy day today. It's about twenty degrees. It was about fifty degrees colder here last week. You've you've draw the line pretty much anything around ten. Just can't do it for me of all the things that makes this whole conversation. That much more interesting demuth was actually drawn to the Arctic in her young adult life and even lived in the Yukon for two years. And yes doing all the things that you're imagining right now tracking bears hunting. Caribou FISHING SALMON. And yes even. Husky Mushin Dog sledding and no. I'm not making that up. She's that for real your your first journeys out there. If I understand right was your running dog sled yes so when I was eighteen I decided to take a gap year as we. Now call them although they weren't really called then And went to a little community north of the Arctic Circle in the Yukon territory to be a dog handler which is basically an apprentice to somebody who has a dog team and I knew nothing about sled dogs. When I moved up there I was eighteen so I thought I knew something about things but I really didn't. And that was my first introduction to the Arctic. Okay and how long you said you do that for two years. Yes do you. Do you still remember how to do it? I mean I. It's kind of like riding a bicycle except in this particular case. You're working with dogs so you can remember how to do the physical pieces of it but you also need to have a relationship with animals. You're working with so. I'm sure that if I had a team and I spent a lot of time with them would would all come back because I would be making that relationship with dogs but I'd like a bicycle. You can't just grab one and go right right. Yeah that makes sense You don't have to get to know your bike. I right I probably ended up working appear because my dad read me too much Jack London when I was a kid. So there's definitely a literary connection in there now. I could do a really poor job of basically giving it a synopsis of the Book. Or I'm sure it would be much more articulate coming from you Tell us a little bit more about the Soviet whaling And more specifically what you found so fascinating a about that topic. Yes the book that I published. Just this past fall called floating coast looks at basically the the past two hundred years or so along the Bering Strait both the Russian Arctic and in the US Arctic. It's a it's a two country history but because it's an environmental history in some ways it's a history of no country because it's looking at processes an an animals that don't really matched onto nation state borders and the the the project is kind book ended no Pun intended by could have two episodes of large scale whaling the first one being in the nineteenth century for market whalers capitalist wailers most of them coming from New England in fact some of them from where I now live in Providence. Who were coming up to kill bowhead. Whales for oil for lamp oil mostly and then the book closes with a couple of chapters about Soviet whaling in the twentieth century. Which in many ways is just the socialist analog to the to the capitalist wailing in that it is Quite excessive it kills whales far outside their capacity to to reproduce. And keep keep up with the demand and those kind of frames of the book in some ways. Show the things that I found really interesting about this part of the world as a historian. Who's interested in the ways that people's ideas influence the environments? They live in and vice versa. Which is that. It's a it's a place that has a very similar ecology on both sides of the Bering Strait. If you drop down on the peninsula or the seward Peninsula Chukchi Peninsulas in Russia and the seward Peninsula's in Alaska. He can't really tell one from the other right. And let's you know the place extremely well. Because the the flora and the fauna in geology are really comparable but of course in the twentieth century. It gets split by these two big economic ideologies that imagine each other in opposition. Which is you know. Capitalism and socialism. So it's kind of a natural experiment to see how these two ways of managing environments in some sense that the Soviet Union the United States brought with them interact with Arctic species and in the case of Wales they do it very similarly which is more or less trying to kill everywhere they possibly can ya. It's like it's kind of shocking especially when you talk about like as a concern of how many whales are being impacted or what that's doing to the ecosystem comes up that the answer kind of always came back to will. Don't worry. Technology will save us from. That will deliver a positive outcome. Okay can you elaborate on that? Yes this was one of the really interesting commonalities I found between two groups of whalers who were operating hundred years apart from each other or more and in two extremely different cultural and economic contexts is at the end of nineteenth century moby. Dick STYLE TALL SHIP. Whalers call me. Ishmael an ordinary seaman before the mast on the good ship check. What found out a man on Christmas Day of the year? Eighteen forty four on a thousand days. Voight very aware that when they entered a new population of Wales and a piece of the ocean that they hadn't been hunting in before that they would they called. Wailing it out or fishing it out that they would kill off an enormous number of the animals that were that were available locally and that they were doing this and getting further and further from home. So they're aware and using the word extinction by the end of the nineteenth century but at the same time as they're talking about extinction they're basically saying well if we put in place some technological Improvements if our ships get faster. If we're more able to navigate around the sea ice will be able to still catch these whales and there was this kind of belief that because Wales were really intelligent. And all of the whalers nudists and talk about this in detail that there were more whales. They were just shy or had gotten smart and were hiding in new places. So there's actually a couple of lines in Moby Dick Melville talks about you know the whales are just hiding behind the Arctic Sea ice and then after the Second World War the Soviet Union sort of follows the same pattern in that they have very sophisticated marine biology by that point in many ways the the research that so the marine biologist or doing is ahead of what's happening in the United States particularly when it comes to studying ways that whales are social animals and able to communicate vocally with each other They're they're way ahead of what's happening in English. Speaking Countries but at the same time as an aware that that the populations of wheels are dropping but at the same time.

Eadweard Muybridge, the Man Who Captured Time
"Edward Mobridge was born in eighteen thirty and kingston upon teams in England. His birth name was Edward Muggeridge but as he marched through the circumstances dances life he would change his name many times. Such a thing was pretty uncommon in the eighteen hundreds but he was pretty uncommon man. His hometown town was the historical site of coronations where the early British kings were crowned and ceremony and the earliest of. These monarchs were Saxons and perhaps inspired by that the young man would change his name to Mobridge and adopt the old spelling of his first name. Edward The vowel heavy spelling E. A. D. w. e. a. a- are D-. It looks like eat weird but sounds like Edward seeking adventure. He left for America at the age of twenty two telling his grandmother that if he didn't succeed and the lofty goals he had for his own life. He'd never retired. He arrived in New York with a bunch of extra bells and his name and little else he. He worked there for a bit but was thirsty for more. So he left for California soon after it was eighteen fifty-five during the gold rush when scores of people headed west to mind for the valuable metal. He sought his fortune through other means. Though he opened a bookstore in San Francisco the city was growing in the people had money need to spend by most accounts he was mild mannered and his business was pretty successful in the bustling city in eighteen. Sixty he made plans to head back to Europe for. We're a visit and to do some business. But he missed the boat so instead he booked passage on a Coniston goggin across the American continent to head head back east and from there he would sail to his native England. Kind of still go. aggies were the common covered wagon that you see all of the images of westward travel. It was was a fateful trip and the first time that a horse would fundamentally alter his life. These wagons were pulled by horses. The one carrying Mobridge was pulled by a team of six six mustangs but somewhere in Texas the horses pulling his wagon broke loose and started off leaving the wagon cascading on a high narrow trail above Iraqi fall. The driver couldn't get control and the WAGGON tumbled loaded with passengers and their belongings thinking quickly as the accident that was unfolding. Edward tried to cut an escape hole in the wagons cover but in the commotion he was thrown from the vehicle and hit his head on a rock. During the fall he recovered from the head injury in Arkansas. For three months though he had no recollection of the accident. One of the other passengers had to tell oh him what had happened. In addition to some memory problems he now saw everything in a disorienting. Double Vision Edward also displayed definite personality. Finality changes it was a brain injury. And as you might guess these can have a great impact on a person in his case. The injuries came with aggressive episodes. Grandiose thinking and general unusual behavior the people who had known him before noticed a distinct difference in his personality. After recuperating more New York he headed back to England where he stayed for several years when he returned to America in eighteen sixty seven. He considered himself photographer having learned a lot about the new art form and he had acquired some very nice equipment which he had brought with him. It was still a developing art. In fact the I photograph in history was made in France just four years before Edward was even born. By the time he was working eighteen sixties. The technology was still very limited mid and far from the powerful cameras that we carry in our pockets every day. Edwards equipment filled an entire horse cart in addition to the new career as a photographer he also sported an enormous beard and he called himself by a host of new names including Helius. This was not not the same old Edward. His photography made an impact on the world. He had a definite fascination with stopping time. Just a few years after a man named Matthew Brady Changed America by photographing not just the people of the civil war. But the battle scenes and carnage mobridge was documenting in beautiful detail. Some of America's because most amazing and mysterious natural sites. If you've never been to Yosemite Valley you still probably heard about it's staggering beauty. This led to it being being among the first of the land to be designated as national parks but before it welcomed hordes of tourists to gaze at its beauty weighbridge made some of the first and certainly some of the best photographs of the amazing land. Some of them are so amazing. They look like epic landscape paintings soon. Everyone wanted a piece of Edward. Helius Komo Abridge the same year. He came back to America. The Secretary of State William seward negotiated a deal to buy Alaska Lasca from the Russian Empire. But for years this was called seward's icebox or seward's folly because most people thought it was a costly mistake to buy the enormous swath of northern land in an effort to convince people of its value. The government hired Mobridge to join an expedition travel with his immense. It's photo equipment and a darkroom and photograph the Land Resources and native people of the territory. They are some of the most important documents we have of that time time period still today but it was back in California that his fame truly solidified and it was largely. Thanks to a man who would give his name to Stanford University his name was Leland Stanford and he had a problem he was a robber Baron and oh this was a problem for a lot of other people. This wasn't a problem as so called robber. Baron he like several other industrialised of the late eighteen. Hundreds was rich and powerful but he had gotten that way through some pretty shady and morally questionable ways used political influence and connections to get rich not to mention taking advantage of many less fortunate people he had been the governor head of the railroad a Horse Breeder and he owned what was at the time the largest winery in the world on his gigantic estate. He raised eight hundred racehorses. Feeding these horses alone wasn't expensive task in order to do so. He also operated a a sixty acre carrot farm just for food so you may ask yourself what does a guy like this. Have to worry about Mr Muggeridge. I I have a problem. That's not my name. Mr Mobridge have rows riot again. I have gone long again call me. He Leo's Leo's that's right heels as in the ancient Greek personification of the sun being okay. Okay Helius so I have this theory and it's more than a hunch but I just can't prove it and I may or may not have bet money on it so I I need an answer. So how can he LEO's help. Well he'll ios this concerned horses. You see I believe when a horse runs at some point in its stride dried all four of its speed are above the ground so at some point the horse has touching absolutely nothing yet still moving forward but it happened so quickly that I can't be certain. Do you understand yeah. He Leo's digs that. You want me to prove it with Pictures Helius. I'd like that very much which it's going to cost you. Some money got plenty. Don't worry. Coup crackle added now it was actually a pretty common disagreement of the time and Leland with his stable full of horses and pockets. Full of cash was in a unique position to solve it he just needed. Someone like mobridge invest best craziest and most creative photographer in the public eye to solve technical issues when a horse ran. was there ever a moment when all four of its feet were off of the ground many people believed it could not possibly be true. The first tries to capture the airborne image. Each were failures. It was impossible with the cameras of the day to catch the fast horse. At just the right time the beast was just a blur so they went back to the drawing board. The project was derailed by mobridge being the defendant in a murder case which is another story entirely but once that was over they got back to work. More bridge hung white sheets up along the race track. And whiten the track itself with chalk powder this would reflect any an all light which he knew would help. The camera. Camera capture a clear image of the fast horse next. He designed a camera with quick shutter speed. It may have been the first of its kind as most cameras needed a long Exposure to whatever was being photographed people would have to sit still early photographs. So that they didn't show up as a blur that would not work with a galloping horse.
Trends in Computer Vision with Amir Zamir
"All right. Everyone we are here for a are rewind our second annual walk walk through the top trends and developments in machine learning and AI. And this time. I am with emirs. Amir Emir is an assistant professor Besser of computer science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology or EPL. In fact Amir this current moment For another three days days is a post doc at affiliated with Stanford and UC. Berkeley where he was when we first spoke with him back in July of the twentieth eighteen Amir. Welcome back to the TUOMO. Ai podcast thanks. Great to be here. Yeah I'm really excited to dig into this conversation about what What's new your take on? Two Thousand Nineteen from Computer Vision Perspective and so to kind of get started with that. WanNa we just take broad brushstrokes. What's your take on twenty nineteen? Thanks for having me. It was another exciting year in my opinion for fields old's but the guy and Including commit or vision no conflict conferences. They're expanding so there's more talent coming in more energy a thanks. APR Two thousand. Eighteen was six thousand. Roughly the number of ten days in two thousand on nineteen was about ten thousand so we will see another six months ago. So we'll see how it's going to be in twenty twenty but that expansion size. How does that gross rate compared to Europe which is the one that gets a lot of headlines? Writing Writing Europe's was I came back nurse. Like roughly a two weeks ago. I believe it was thirteen thousand But again they are like six months apart so oh You know we will see how CPR it'll be but I think roughly the same size maybe near somewhat bigger because it's generally includes many different areas not just vision entity and so on many There myself included But yeah but they are. Huge conferences is big enough. That you want your friends anymore. are the apor submissions as TV PR growing as quickly as nurse. Yes yeah I don't no not this year The area church should know this number but but all in all what what I'm sure about and it is that there was a really sharp expansion and to some extent that presents a problem for US academics. Because we have to find reviewers for dislocated like papers and so on But that's fine. That's a good problem to have The overall outcome is positive albeit at some variances and You know did. The girl was in a way disproportional because now for the past like four or five years it was a huge huge Interest and we have a lot more like young talent in the field for the same reason. They're young can news. We don't have as many season reviewers to do value the papers so to some extended review quality has a little bit of various incentive in comfort two years ago but again like I said that's a good problem to the house because the field is generating more results so a little bit of variances in my opinion acceptable so the field is growing dramatically as has our other areas in La. I what else is happening. Ambition right in terms more. Technically I think You know we see a few trends had had there not to exclude two thousand nineteen but I think some of them are maturing into the nineteen one Meta trend that I see for sure is that we see a lot of in areas like vision plus something else like vision process graphics a nominal example of that or are all these like image scientists spy-planes either Gan base and and whatnot but the pipelines that essentially generate image. That's in a way it's a graphics problem because graphic is about like generating something good looking that you put under your screen like rendering things and vision was inverse of the problem. You already have an image and you won't understand ended but These areas got blended together. And I think The first time envisioned that I saw a reasonably working example was the paper. Picks two picks a few years ago and after it became really popular and cycle gone and so on those papers actually he came primarily from the vision community and of course the graphics community worked a lot on it too so So mix of area of vision press graphics. I guess we'll discuss said partially a Leonard. Get into more details Vision plus robotics is expanding. Think it's one of the areas to watch for sure vision Like adver Saudi under the bus since literature. I think that's something that we not many of US side coming But wait actually makes sense That how the algorithms the basically that there was a line of research going forward making machinery insistence mortar boss than at their Sarah. Examples would like posing concerns funds to people who turns out that you know if you have more robust algorithms for processing visual data. They are more useful seward just processing non-adversarial literature and not address content as well like if you have an innocent as pipeline It it works better if it was robust defied even though the even if you don't mess with the input anymore We can discuss in more detail. Go forward but I think generally the trend of mixing saying different areas with vision is increasingly popular. And I think there's actually a healthy reason to this I think it's a realization musician attack. That vision is service to some downstream goal. It's a very powerful skill. But don't usually observe the world old for the purpose of just absorbing a like just understanding what's going on usually have an intense in mind like we understand the world with you know when I when I get up in the morning wing When I open my eyes a intend to get out of bed safely navigate myself out of the bedroom so the vision is very practical unskilled and so we cannot really make that independence? The research do on vision of these downstream skills so vision plus x is is To me I see that as realization of that fact especially in the context of robotics the reason we mix vision robotics together is that our robots what's needed to have a complex understanding that the world acquired through the cameras so whatever division pipeline outburts. It should be in a way curated To best support downstream gulliver robots. I particularly. Don't care for instance having robot in my home and it can detect all the objects Jackson do all sorts of complex. Thanks I don't really care how the Vision pipeline works if the downstream will robots. Whatever it is? Make the beds or or do laundry or whatever that is if that works just fine the vision can be asking. Blizzard wants to be and so it is really and twin intertwined pipeline and I am. I'm actually happy to see that. These areas are mixing together. Because we can now do a more were meditated design in our research and do vision in a way that it's more useful toward you downstream goals. There are some caveats that story Ernst Art when I observe painting watching and looking at it but I'm appreciating I don't necessarily intent to do something with it but I'm generally speaking. Vision is a very practical scale and makes it areas in in. My opinion is Is a realization of that is there also also an implication that vision has reached a level of maturity or meaning the core vision tasks have reached a level of maturity already or performance that we can now even consider moving onto a real world Types of things and incorporating in these other areas like we've we've solved enough of core vision to then mix it with these other fields. Yes and no I would really has really hesitant to say to have solved enough core vision problems or it'd be have sold them like fine. I actually think lets them. The simplest example probably longest Running problem vision is say object detection We're not appointed can say that they can with a high confidence. Yes we can detect an object under varying lighting conditions in different context says unsold and so forth so But at the same time a huge amount of progress has has been made Whether there's a way to make them useful at the answer is yes. And that's why many people are not vision. Experts are actually a using vision pipelines NBC API's

John White Suggests You Stay in Your Lane
"John White joining US good morning morning. Sleep for me when I was a kid was long acres. That was the place to be so That's that's an interesting story there. I wanted to weigh in on this gold up at Belmont and I I was texting with a friend within seconds after the race 'cause he texted me itself. What do you think and before they even put up the a your objection or inquiry and I said well I said I thought that Vino Rosso ran a good race and he seems to be a curling improving with age like a fine wine that I added in my text to him. I said but I said there could be a D. Q. Here and I said that without obviously having seen the head on what I then also texted him 'cause he. He texted back and said really and I said yes might be the Q. I said in New York they pretty much. Let them play more than anywhere these days but this could be the queue so I was on the same page ages you in terms of if you if you go by the recent past history there you're really not expecting a D Q so they might see the head on several times. I was watching the Fox broadcast which I've said many times that is such an outstanding broadcast and they showed and then after a while they were showing with the lanes and I mean look Vino came out not once not twice ice three times he there. was there a bump. No I wouldn't even never say there was a bump but there's like contact and as you pointed out Steve I'm being hurting. I loved your comparison in terms of being on the road in your car when the car in the lane next next to you starts coming into your lane. What do you do? I mean 'cause I used that same analogy a lot of times as has a steward myself in something else when I've been stewart by self that I've told jockeys looked the more you stay straight in race Jason. I and I told them in fact I mean I told Rubin Twenties this at Los Alamos when I was in the stand for the last week of that thoroughbred herb red meat in the summer. I said Ruben. You're a fine writer. Horses run for you. You've got a great future but keep in in mind. When you're out there. The more you can possibly stay straight the last you'RE GONNA be in here seeing the stewards and the more success you really GonNa have have because it doesn't help your business if you're constantly in the steward's office in the morning and sometimes you're going to be you know skate through with a Q. Just because in the opinion of the sewer that didn't affect the order finish or didn't deny a horse the opportunity we get for a better finish but you'll be just lucky on in that regard but the more you can stay straight the less headaches. You're GONNA have the less headaches sir. I've told many many writers this for many many years so this is the thing about being Rosso the minute. He is not staying in his lane. He's putting himself in some jeopardy of possibly being be cute and so to me my vote would have been for a the Q. and I that was my decision before the stewards rendered their decision and I have to admit I was a little surprised when they voted for the D. acute just because of the recent history of how they've been judging this type of situation New York now Steve. It seems to me that there has been a change in the personnel recently in this year in Stewart's Dan. you know we have that that. WHO has gone into the stand and I barley obey a isn't he knew I mean he's. He's been there forever now. He's been there for for even one. One person change can change the dynamics to to how stewards it's rule and this is why to me you know people constantly or talking. All we want consistency. We want consistency and then I've heard some people in racing. Even some commissioners or board members say you know what if you keep the same stewards in the stand all the time they get stale. We should mix them up. Well mixing up. Stewart's to me is not conducive to consistency so one thing but you hope for is that you keep kind of a panel of seward's on a consistent. It's the basis and hope that those words will be consistent now the way they ruled this race. Steve the whole would be as you've are ticketed aided that they now continue to judge Rayson similar to this one when they get a similar situation in other words. If we get another one of these he's hurting deals. One would hope that the number would come down again but again. It's got to be a close. The merging here was you know only Canosa and that's a big element in this decision. often been two lanes or something. I doubt whether taking the Russell now but one that's a nose else and that was enough of an incident throughout really the entire stretch when you think about it I mean from where they started at the top of the stretch stretched the finish so I agree with the Bq and I I'm with you sleep and with Andy I think it is in the best interest of racing racing to judge races in terms of of when you get these horses directing like that and to to take those numbers down more often than not yeah if they're GONNA do it. They're going to do it consistently and and also beyond the consistency of of the decisions when they when it gets it to their ants. I don't understand understand why they've gotten away and Richmond. Yori has discussed this too because big for a while had been had been drafted to work with the young riders but I do not know why the film patrol concept y. Y that has has been kind of. I don't know if it's been abandoned per se but the you know the opportunity to sit with riders and say to them. You guys have got to stop this us and we're going to start calling it on a regular basis so you might as well hold your lane now and because you can do it we understand the heat of the battle and going a little bit too much with one hand or another. You know it can drive a horse in the direction. I mean frankly I to me. It seemed as if Iraq in the left hand. If you just got back to writing he might have been fine. He he went he after the first contact he we're back left handed at least one more time maybe twice and I think that that was probably what flag the stewards to say. This was more than just a casual bump. He carried him to two and a half pads and I. I'm a little surprised that the people who are continuing to say it it would never do that. Via Rosso never should have come down that that's that's a little hyper hyperbole basically as to to to what transpired there but if they're going to do it regularly. I think it'd be great for everybody
Dorian Slams into Bahamas and Menaces Florida
"We begin with the breaking news. This hour hurricane dorian the massive deadly storm is now lashing the florida coast powerful winds whipping onshore conditions are getting worse with each passing hour and it is going to be hours upon hours and hours. This is from moments ago from melbourne beach. Florida mandatory evacuations are underway there. Let's show you the storm from the international space station a stunning picture three hundred miles wide right now winds up to one hundred and forty five miles an our the picture of the storms. I just tweeted by u._s. Astronaut onboard the space station so that is the i of dorian seen from space as that storm is essentially sleet stationary moving so slowly ravaging the bahamas which it has been doing us since it came ashore there as a category five storm thirty hours ago it it is the most powerful storm in known history to hit the bahamas decimating the islands. Thousands of homes and businesses are now gone. An entire island is without power tonight. It is way too early to have any sense of the death toll and to give you an idea of just how high the storm surge was what the united states could be looking. Eh you can see waves nearly reaching the second story of home. <hes> rescue crews are just starting the grim task of searching for signs of life among the piles of debris and it the scenes like this that has officials in florida pleading with people in evacuation zones. Were still there to get out of a team of reporters standing by from florida to the bahamas tonight. I want to begin with miguel marquez who is out front in vero beach florida gal. What are people eating the evacuation warnings yes and no there's most the people along. The coast here have evacuated along the way but this storm has been so slow. It's creeping so slowly towards us. We've had this same wind for most of the day to day that is south here at vero beach. We're on the barrier islands here. The sea has been quite rough about the same. We've gotten on some bands of wins but as you look north you can see it's sort of broken up is not quite as much wind and clouds on that end of it so you do. You have some people who are staying sort of coming here to watch see what's happening. Some people coming here to secure their homes before they get out. Most people say they they are. They are going to get out there waiting to see what's happening here. They're watching very closely. What's happening to the bahamas right now and they're all wondering when will make that right word. Turn will head north and if it doesn't if it wobbles toward shore people are concerned about that authorities saying look if you don't get out tonight by a two a._m. Tonight it will really start to come in <hes> in a very big strength here. If you don't get out before those winds hit forty five hours those those bridges to the mainland we'll be closed and you will have to ride it out here on the barrier islands aaron all right miguel marquez. Thank you very much. I wanna go as as miguel pointing. They're indicating getting down south. Just south of miguel stuart florida where brian todd is at this hour so <hes> brian <hes> you know as we understand it. You know it's sort of sitting there as it moves so slowly. What is happening conditions where you are conditions here. Erin are getting worse like they are. Mcgill is look at the storm surge here at this park in stuart stuart florida. The waves have been smacking up against the seawall here all day long. It has been getting worse and if you can see out here looks like a rain band another one of those outer rain bands is about to come in here. You're at seward. It's been like this all day. You'll get an really hasn't let up as far as the wind. The rain has come and gone with the wind has not let up and we are told that the wind is going to get much worse in the next say twelve hours or so here in stewart what also is a concern as you've got the confluence of three large bodies of water that have all been you know had the storm surge been bolstering them <hes> since i guess sunday <hes> where was in the bahamas that storm surge i has been affecting the atlantic ocean over here the indian river lagoon here and the saint louis river right over here. This is a confluence of those three bodies of water all of which have seen the storm surge really get stronger and that makes the flooding here the flooding danger here much worse in addition. We can tell you that right behind us. Here are barrier islands hutchinson island in jupiter island about thirty thousand. The people combined live on those islands. Some of them have gotten out there under mandatory evacuation orders but as you know even under mandatory evacuation they people cannot be forced from their homes. They are concerned though that the people who did not get off these islands are not going to be able to get help once the storm starts. They believe that they're not going to be able to get first responders to them. The bridges are going to be closed. Ridge is going to be too dangerous for first responders to pass over them and they're worried that people here in these barrier islands are going to get cut off for at least a couple of days erin all right brian todd. Thank you very much and let's get the latest now on doors path. Tom sater meteorologist is tracking the storm. So <hes> tom you know is <hes>. You know. You hear people saying well. Let's let's wait. Is it gonna wobble. Is it gonna turn. What is the forecast right now well. We're still hopeful that it's going to start to make that job to the north now and stay offshore but the the door is not closed on that yet the sun is setting and you can see it here in the visual imagery another harrowing night for those in the bahamas about seventy thousand of this northern islands three hundred hundred sixty thousand overall but they're without power communications probably without roofs we've heard of total decimation of homes and the inundation of heavy water and they're going to have a long night tonight it. It is stationary. It's not even moving one mile per hour now. We cover a lot of hurricanes and the c._n._n. Weather center typhoons and super typhoons of the pacific cyclones in the in the indian ocean. I've never seen one put on the brakes like this. Keep its power after traveling aaron. Seventeen hundred miles form barbados through is wobbling a little bit overnight last night. It went through what we call an eye wall replacement cycle. It can't sustain this energy so the eye wall opens up another band and then it contracts syndicates energy back but every time it does that those strong winds extend outward so the storm actually gets broader in its strength you you can see already some rain in the carolinas into florida. We've had some waterspouts. I wouldn't be surprised to see a tornado watch tonight or tomorrow for the eastern half of florida but but even when you get in freeport i mean this is only thirty two miles to the northeast of them. They have been getting a beating but they struck the strongest winds near the i. Maybe just away from them. I'm sure this has changed the coastline in the shape of it right now but what we're watching now of course the warnings have been extended north. Just south of jacksonville now watches her into the carolinas but coming up the second part of this show. I want to talk about the steering currents and what this means every ten fifteen twenty miles is critical. We we need to get that. Turn to the north and i think we may have something that's going to help us out and share it with you in just a little bit all right. Thank you very much. Tom is going to be back with us as we watch this and tom in a few minutes i wanna talk about four pierce one of the city's about to feel the impact a door and when you talk about these wide bands tom linda hudson you see her there the mayor of fort pierce here's joins me now. Live maher. I appreciate your time <hes> obviously the storm dangerously close to florida and so enormous that you have these impacts but so slow that you have some people saying well. I just wanna get a better sense of things. What is your biggest concern right now. Mayor i am concerned that people will not take it seriously we still even though it looks better for us. It's still going to be a serious effect on this area. The winds are going to be high and the storm surge is going to be high and we're concerned about flooding so and we're also wanting people to stay in their homes and not leave their homes until all the all clear so you know obviously you're going to have hurricane-force winds as you as you talk about the storm surge itself could be it could be incredibly deadly <hes>. Are you prepared right right now. Yes we are prepared and i will tell you that we've had lots of time to prepare. How many days have we had to prepare pair. So we feel really good about what we done and <hes> we're experienced at this and i know you can't prepare for every eventuality -ality but <hes> we have a great team that has had experience with matthew and experience with irma and we coordinate well within this county and and we've done the best we can with what we have and we're we're prepared so when darrow people you know who have not evacuated and we are you you know across florida where they're gonna be. Bridges are going to be closing down right. People are going to be stock and they could be stuck for days and if the storm <hes> you know you have a stationary storm like what's happening the bahamas it could be incredibly incredibly deadly <hes> for a loss of life. What is your message to people who have not yet heeded evacuation warnings so they shelter in place ace. They've made that choice and most of them should know the dangers. The dangerous are <hes> when the winds get above forty five miles per hour first responders cannot come and rescue them and so that message is always clear and <hes> we have seven hundred people in shelters right now who heated that message and in a vacuum but couldn't leave but a lot of people left a lot of people left friday saturday and sunday so <hes> the ones that are sheltering in place they know the risk a- and <hes> we're we're all in this together all right. Thank you very much more

Aldi and Trader Joes?
"I I got interested in trader Joe's about ten years ago never been to one of their stores, but I had a general impression cheap and cheerful relatively laid back and sort of groovy for grocery store, apparently reflection of its surfie, California roots, also not aggressively health conscious but leaning in that direction. And then I read Wall Street Journal article about German grocery chain called Aldy that was ramping up its US expansion all the is a super cheap super generic grocery store. Ninety five percent of its products were house brands, and it was beating even WalMart on price. The article said the chain had two branches back in Germany separately owned by two wealthy brothers named Albrecht. And that one of those branches also owned trader Joe's I found. This back surprising only because when I think of German business practices. I don't think of a groovy earthy, crunchy, California surf vibe, but there. So it was I also learned that trader Joe's stores were much smaller in typical supermarkets that they had their own way of doing things and the places without trader Joe's often started petitions to bring one to their town. It was a sort of loony devotion usually reserved for sports teams or your favorite band kinda grocery store has a following like that. And then when I learned that trader Joe's out sells all other grocery stores per square foot. I really started paying attention then one opened up near my office here in New York started shopping there and the most part loving it. I realize it's not for everyone. In fact, predator strategy is trying not to be for everyone. But I did want to know the secrets to their success. We reached out to the trader Joe's headquarters in Monrovia, California. And we're politely told to get lost. As we mentioned earlier, the company is known for its secrecy. The two brothers who founded all north and all the south in Germany. You know, have a record of that Michael Roberto again that was kind of the family heritage of early being pretty secretive about their business operations. And really, they weren't even you couldn't even find photos of them like on the internet for years. I mean, they were very secretive. It's a strange combination affirm that prides itself on user-friendliness while also keeping its distance which means that a lot of what's known about. It comes from industry. Analysts and other secondary. Sources blitz start here in the very beginning. There really was a Joe behind trader Joe's, Joe Colom. He opened the first store in nineteen sixty seven in Pasadena, California. He went with a South Seas theme beach Hawaiian shirts calling employee's captains and crew members in nineteen seventy nine Colom sold the chain to one of the secretive Albrecht brothers feel feel Albrecht was recluse. Perhaps it was said because he had once been kidnapped and held for ransom. For seventeen days in Germany Albrecht died in two thousand ten but trader Joe's remains notoriously press shy. It's also a privately held company. So no earnings calls with investment analysts. No public proclamations of any sort really about how it does business. And so to figure out how it works will rely on a few people who've spent a lot of time thinking about trader Joe's, including the business school. Professor Michael Burto, we've already met correct? Also, the Columbia business school, professor Sheena anger, whose research specialty is particularly relevant here. I've been studying choice. Why do we want choice? What are the things that affect how in what we choose? And what are some things we can do to improve our choice making abilities? We'll also talk to a trader Joe's superfan. My name is Kirk to Serbia I reside in Seward Alaska Seward, by the way, does not have a trader Joe's, nor does the. State of Alaska the closest store from disarming. His house is two thousand two hundred ninety five miles away by car in Bellingham, Washington. Discern mea is the guy who we heard earlier say this the first thing, I do when I know I'm going somewheres get on internet and find where the closest trader Joe's is and will hear from a spy in the house of trader Joe's, a former advertising executive named Mark gardener who became obsessed with the chain. And I had this thought like, you know, what if I just went and work fare? What would I learn about this company?.

"Of it. I'm Alison Seward. Our next guest is someone who might know from her stellar performance and HBO's Westworld for which she recently won the EMMY for best supporting actress in a drama and believe it or not it's been twenty years since standing Newton audiences in the film adaptation of Toni Morrison's beloved her latest project places her not in front of the camera. But rather in the executive producers chair, she's one of the EP of a documentary called the Yana, which weaves together both live footage and animation and is narrated by the film, subjects children at an orphanage in Swaziland part documentary and part narrative, the film tells two stories at once that of the children and also that of the powerful girl named Yana who story the children's create as the film progresses. The film premieres tonight at the center and Tandy Newton joins me today studio. Nice to see you always lovely to see this is so exciting. How did you come to pretty system film to ET on his film? Yeah. What a privilege I actually became friends with a documentary maker Shamin obey Chinoy from. Pakistan, who we had her own. Oh, tell me. The Eitel's new movie coming out. Yeah. And she and I became friends and her cinematographer was Aaron who is the filmmaker of Liana. And at that time, I think they were struggling with finance because this was a labor of love took eight years to to to bring to life. And Aaron is from Swaziland grew up there, and it was very close to his heart. But you know, it's it's hard like I said to get to get people interested. So she felt that I would. And she was absolutely right. Would love the material which really want to get involved and could help them both financially. But also guiding them into the industry, the mainstream entertainment, and it's been honestly for years of just complete joins as like, I said, it's such a privilege to be to be part of it. When you watch the film. It seems ridiculous that it would be hard to get someone right yet. It is why is it? Well, the best the best projects tend to be you know, it's only after its then studios are trying to emulate what was done with no money at all. It's it's sorry. What was your question? Why why it'd be so hard to get a film because it's, you know, this was I think our and Amanda they were doing this outside of their other jobs, frankly, this was not paying the bills. And so it took a long time, you know, little chunks of money here and there, and when I came on board, I was able to, you know, help them find much bigger pockets of money and to introduce them to to people, and I used, you know, the the the the my address book, I guess. And having been doing this for a long time. But also, I think because of the, you know, as as an activist who's worked a lot in Africa who I've met a lot of people who really care about how people in that part of the world are portrayed, and how incredibly important and valuable is to to have stories lightly on a which allow for connection between those in the west teas that dreadful time and the developing world, and you know, that connectedness is is is crucial to how we're going to move forward as a as a humanity. I have to imagine the that is the upside of celebrity it most certainly is the hope is the only good thing about it. Frankly, it's I mean, I don't bemoan the fact that I've done well. But you know, it's I'm thrilled that I've but celebrity is like a whole industry in itself. It's not about the work. It's a it's this other bit that makes people a lot of money, you know, whether it's magazines. You know, photographs it's the it's the kind of the fantasy bit that is is unattainable by people. You know? So they dream. It's the stuff that they dream about. But yes to actually find a use for it, which is to to help and encourage an audience to be interested about things that matter to them. They just don't know about they didn't realize it. So it's really interesting in this film that children narrate the film, but they're clearly also talking about their own lives as well. Why was it important to make sure that the story was children's truly the children's story. Not like, hey, guys read this about Liana that this really evolved from them. I think that it was the need Aaron and Amanda having spent a lot of time that Aaron's father actually runs the, you know, the the farm where the orphanages is located and. These families lives have been ravaged by HIV, and by issues that the world has a duty to to to really recognize. And it's something that we know is happening right through Africa. And I it was important that the children told their story. So that we could actually believe the react the truth and reality of and also because they are absolutely enchanting create story thing, you know, these kids don't have families that parents have died from aids and attending problems around that. And they have joy and the fierce and funny. How could you not wanna spend an hour just enchanted by them? I think it was basically Erin, and Amanda is filmmakers just realizing that they had. They had the value of these kids on screen would be extraordinarily. And they and it's true. They are and what so magical is that the, you know, the I call it sacrifice. The fact that Aaron Amanda just put their lives into this for that number of years that the payoff is going to be enormous because the film is magical is met beautifully Shaw. It's the kids are just the best movie stars I've ever seen practically and there's loads of them, and what it will do to help raise awareness about what's happening in Swaziland and by extension Africa. Wh what it will allow not just children, but adults to to feel this connectedness with people that maybe they just see is the forgotten ones. They're the silenced people in the world. They're the ones you don't care about, you know, and that's not a good. Thing. You know, we gained so much from from Africa and the resources that come from there. There's so much that we wouldn't even be able to do without these resources, and it's it's just just out of gratitude. And and awareness, we have we have a GT to know these people, and they're they're offering up friendship in a way, when you you meet them on screen, so it's it's a joyful thing. And and and I just love the fact that is opposed to news feed where you see, you know, fly ridden kids with kwashiorkor and Pulver tea and yet another tragic story. And of course, they're happening all the time from that part of the world, you know, that we actually get to see the tenacity, and perseverance and and just survival instincts of these incredible young people who had just like my children your children. In everybody's children. And you know, the fact that one of the lines in the movies, hold onto hope that these kids can hold onto hope when they've been through been through. It is these bumps if you could see it listeners the goosebumps on my arm just that is just just inspiration for for your day. You know, whether you want to help them in Swaziland or not it's going to improve your day because he inspires you. The fact that these kids can be so it's a nation, and hopeful and joyful and grateful for their lives when we have so much and yet, you know, we still find it hard to get up in the morning to complain about the frozen yogurt. I mean, naturally, it's like, right? Watch the honor and feel great for a week. Like that is my that's the advertiser. Elevator guaranteed watch the honor and feel amazing for a fortnight.
