Partnering to Reduce Risk & Do More Exciting Work with Frank Hannigan

"Let me ask you a little bit by strategy cried. So are you an employee strategy Are you a founder and owner. Yes the way we have. We have four partners at the moment. They run the company and we work together. We work separately. And that's the way it's almost like is not dissimilar to the way legal practices were so we have four partner shack. Roddy margaret's myself. Our hoping to more each of them have domain expertise and also vertical experience and so they will have sense. We would prefer to all his work in paris. So i would have worked in paris number of our people both partners in the socio. That's how that's much more effective because it the risks from the client's perspective but also you tend to have applied effect if you have two guys coming in to the same problem with a different lens. But sometimes we we all work on the same problem so we all work on projects. French fries added together. Which is grateful and again you got network effects. Were having a smart people. Beat each other up beating each other up our ideas up together and that's good because we trust each other but we have different starting points right. Different perspectives on the same problem. Okay so one question. I think the people struggle with is is what actually is strategy. And you've got right there in the name and you are an expert in strategy strategy consultant. So can we talk about strategy for me. Because i think people struggle with trying to pin it down define what it is. I think if you can't explain what it is. Whatever your domain then you don't know enough about it so a strategy for me is desperately simple. It's from a latin. Were from a greek word which means generalship. So it's the organization of people resources over time to achieve and calm and we work with the way we work with companies is to try and make that a simple in as practical as operational as we can so typically we will start off not what the mission vision objective statements. We'll start off. We have a mapping process which we've developed over the last five years we help them to talk about the roots of their complete who they are where they came from a wide. They set up their company than we try and get them to inc where they are right now at their value proposition is ripe. Know what their client base is right. Now what their sweet spot customers right now. Are we build a whole range of if you like information that allows them to sit back and go. Well actually yeah. I kind of knew all this.

According to an article in the came encompass an isolated area containing disease was spotted at life off a smith cove. And that's along the south west coast and that's not good. The came in department of environment also reported infected sites amal along grand cayman's east coast the now suspects that divers and boat operators be spreading it although scientists are still not exactly sure how stony coral tissue disease spreads.

Hopefully in the near future you'll be able to travel without restrictions if you're fully vaccinated and finally here on wet notes. I just saw that. Bob ballard has a new book out and it's titled into the deep and memoir from the man who found titanic a couple of years ago. We met doctor ballard at the sixty fifth boston.

The underwater world portrayed in advertising entertainment and mainstream culture. The museum says that there is something for everyone. They have the regulator that was used in star wars. I think i read somewhere that a been an old decor that was used for darth vader's heavy breathing. They also have stuff from jaws men of honor and of course see hunt. Yes it's still alive. This is not a virtual So you'll have to get down to i'll miranda before december thirty first to catch diving in pop culture. Pick or it didn't happen. That's the tagline used by light. I'm sure to have my acolyte. Olympus t g six rig when i head down on a couple of days well i just saw that. They are running a contest for people to design their new pick or it didn't happen shirt. The design winner will get five hundred dollars worth who i like year. That's pretty nice. I hope you also get a teacher now. The contest opened on may first and runs until june sixth. So he's not a lot of time. The designs must be underwater photos or have underwater theme. And you must incorporate pick or it didn't happen into the design. No other words are allowed. You cannot use the ike light logo or any other copyrighted material the entry form on the lake blog so you have to search for light contest to find the link. I wasn't able to get to directly from their main websites. Who just do a little bit of searching there so fire up your creative juices and enter the pick or it didn't happen. T shirt design contest from michael. Light is reef. Well this is very interesting. Hope reef is an initiative that is being sponsored by shiba. The cat food brand hope reef is in sulawesi indonesia and they are planning to restore one hundred eighty five thousand square meters of reef spells out hope and apparently you can spot the letters on google earth. The purpose beyond restoration is to drive awareness and show how positive change can happen in our lifetime. Hope was unveiled on may fifth. Two thousand twenty one but it actually started two years ago is using something called restare technology that incorporates centimeter wide steel stars that the corals can attach to hope reef has its own youtube channel and you can check out the short one minute and thirty eight second video called the film that grows coral. It's called the film that grows coral because all advertising revenues from the film support the hope reef. Just go out there and search hope brief. Take a look diving with a purpose. That's exactly what a team of divers started last week. According to an associated press article. That i read this team of five to ten. Divers started a massive six month effort to clean up lake. Tahoe out in california. Their plan is to cover seventy two miles of shoreline and their goal is to conduct three dives each week to a depth of about twenty five feet. The team will be running this dive schedule from now through november. The operation is being sponsored by a nonprofit called. Clean up the lake. It was founded by a guy named colin west who is a diver and a filmmaker. The ultimate cost of this endeavor is two hundred and fifty thousand dollars on that i dive. They pulled two hundred pounds of trash from lake tahoe and tagged twenty larger items for subsequent removal. It's amazing that people still use our lakes rivers and oceans as garbage dumps. Good luck to this team for making a difference and diving with a purpose in case you missed it. Psi pci the gurus scoop scuba cylinder inspection. Recently posted a short article on died news wire. They needed to dispel a couple of rumors. Flying around out there about scuba tanks. One was about old luxury tanks. But that's not what i want to talk about here. Apparently there is a really bad rumor going around that beginning in two thousand and twenty one. Steel cylinders are exempt from ota cleaning requirements. What how did that one start. That is just unsafe and dangerous. Cg a or the compressed gas association states oh to cleaning is required for anything above twenty three point five percent over to please please please make sure you get your tanks properly serviced and cleaned for. Oh two as necessary thanked. Psi pci and finally. Here's some news from vermont.

Pepsi's Number Fever

"Victoria. And where nato angelo. Where a couple living in manila in the philippines. They had a pretty hot life. When i worked as a rickshaw driver and the whole family lived in a tin roof shack but they had a dream. Tim hoffa talks about this in his cautionary tales. Podcast and that dream is that they'll win a very unusual lottery. The lottery is called number fever in the lottery. Numbers are printed on the inside of bottle tops on bottles of pepsi. They sat down every night to wash numbers drawn on tv. If the number from your bottle top was drawn in one grand prize you could win a million pesos. That's equivalent to about forty thousand american dollars. That is a lot of money in the philippines in one thousand nine hundred to a life changing amount of money for victoria and anita if they were ever to win it but of course. It's just that one grand prize. What are the chances they would ever win. What was the number. The number was three four nine one evening. They are watching the television and the lottery. Juries held on the number comes up and it's three four nine. They can't believe it. Got forty thousand dollars a million pesos. They the children can go to college. Anita doesn't have to work as a rickshaw driver any more it would be like winning a million dollars in the us. Today but pepsi messed up and eight hundred thousand bottletops printed with the winning number three four nine so for victoria and horta the way i imagine. This is the run out onto the streets to celebrate and everybody else is on the streets and they're celebrating too because they all have the number three four nine on their bottle tops. So they're all going to be millionaires. Yeah well you'd think pepsi was on the hook for at least fifteen billion dollars

Wet Notes 5-6-2021

"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

Is Mac Jones a Good Fit For the Patriots?

"But at some point in time whenever Mac Jones is ready, he is going to be able to operate the full facilities of the Patriots offense, which Cam Newton was never able to do last year, I don't care what was around him. Mac Jones is one of the most advanced. I didn't get a chance to ask Bill. This question in the press conference. I wanted to But Mac Jones is probably the most advanced college quarterback in terms of pre-snap checks reads, all this stuff. All the mental song that goes on at the line of scrimmage I have not seen or heard of a quarterback as advanced at Mac Jones in terms of what his level of experience is. And I think that it's just citing to me. It's probably exciting to Josh McDaniels. It's probably exciting to the Patriots that eventually at some point in time. Mac Jones is going to be able to do a lot of the stuff at the line Shack on. Brady could do. I'm not saying everything. I'm not saying that he is Tom Brady, but just to be able to say, all right, we see this defense, we're going to check out of this, this guy is Advanced Beyond almost all college quarterbacks you. You talk to people around the Alabama program, and they talk about how smart he is. They talk about how he's been teaching the Alabama offense, to Bill, O'Brien wage, Down there, so right? Just in terms of all that, that's a great basis and it's something that the Patriots lacked, whether it was Cam Newton or Jerry students. Did them coming from the Baylor offense home and the Auburn offense, Mac Jones can do everything that the Patriots need to have done at the line of scrimmage and that is a huge key component in this offense and they got a guy who can do that.

Wet Notes - 4-23-21

"This is wet notes for april twenty third. Two thousand twenty one here on scuba shack radio. I up just after i recorded. The last episode president biden released his two thousand and twenty two budget. Well if you're a fan of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration or noah. You'll be happy in the budget. Proposal released on april ninth. The president proposed a record budget of six point. Nine billion dollars for knowing now. How does that compare well. This year knows budget is four point. Six billion wow. that's big increase. This budget really supports taking action. On climate change protecting marine mammals the ocean great lakes and coastal communities. If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end. Well that's where patricia dacosta her family recovered an emerald colored bottle with a handwritten message inside the note said thrown into the ocean on six december. Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark. Fishing in the mouth. These great job. Patty in great job maldives for protecting these critical apex predators. Well that's it for wet notes. For

The Alcatraz Story

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio. This time. we're going back to episode one of season two and it was titled the alcatraz story this episode premiered on january fourth nineteen fifty nine at the time. Alcatraz was still very much an operation as a prison and it did not close until march of nineteen sixty three. The alcatraz story starts off with a scene of several convicts breaking rocks on the cliffs of alcatraz when all of a sudden one of the convex Falls in and then you see him. Swim-down before surfacing when the guards fish him out but wait. There's a mysterious fishing boat. The olympia watching what's happening. The convict circling is arm as if he's signaling fishing boat the scene shifts to the boat and three guys say they need to find mike nelson. Now we're underwater with mike nelson and he's testing flares for company. When all of a sudden an anchor comes crashing down dangerously close to him and an a skin. Diver comes diving down. Mike is really mad. And he's ready to chew him out when he gets to the surface but they get to the surface in all the guys start apologizing and they say they've came a long way to see mike and mike ask them why to bury mitzi no. They introduced themselves as the brand brothers. Larry johnny and frank they claim to be abalone divers and need to to learn how to scuba dive so they can find the abalone. Mike advises them on the law. But they say hey there lotto buying brothers so he agrees to teach larry and johnny how to scuba dive for three hundred dollars. And we're going to start tomorrow morning at eight thirty. But mike tells them any of them goof off. It's over so the next morning they're out diving. Mike says they're easy to teach. He's going over the equipment the safety procedures in the buddy system underwater now. They're in triples doubles and singles tanks. Bit of everything after their first lesson which by the way lasted five hours underwater and they were below sixty feet might tells the brothers no more diving while he heads back to town jeep to get the tanks fill and he gives them a book on scuba diving. Do read larry tells mike okay teach will be good he had. That's not gonna happen. Mike returns to find the boat empty. And there's bubbles in the water. Larry johnny or diving again just franks shows up and mike and frank get into a fight before mike knocks him down gets into his gear and enters the water to retrieve the two brothers before they kill themselves. Mike finds them underwater. And it looks like they're doing something like the dive master gear exchange. Now they take off and mike goes in hot pursuit for some reason. Johnny turns around rips. Mike mask off. Mike has defined it. Put it on and clear it. Just in time to find larry running out of air. Mike grabs larry and buddy breathes with him to the surface now. Mike is really mad. Schools over another five minutes and all their problems would have been over. They'd be dead his advice. Don't play games with the ocean. The brothers gibb tell mike. They were just practicing. What was in the book. Mike gave them. Mike doesn't really believe them but they take off and as the boat depart mike find frank's wallet on the pier. Apparently he lost it. Doing to fight with mike. He's not frank brennan but frank bronson the plot thickens. Wonder if my god is three hundred dollars the scene now shifts to fisherman's warf and mike is getting the low down on the bronson brothers. They haven't been abalone fishermen for years and there's a fourth brother mark now mike looking for their boat but he spots it on often abandoned peer in oakland and decides that he needs to scuba dive out to see what's up. The board is empty. But before mike can get on board the three bronze brothers show up his only option. Hide under the boat when the engine starts. He grabbed a dangling. Bow-line and hitches a ride. They're up to no good. The pressure is tremendous as he hangs on an fears of the blades of the prop behind them. But the boat finally slows then stops. And larry johnny jump in on scuba and have an extra set a gear. What's going on. Mike surfaces and sees their right off alcatraz. It's two against one. Nothing new for mike nelson. He follows them down to some rocks underwater where they deploy a surface buoy. Then we see a convict one zero nine eight six. That would be mark bronson. He died into the water now. Mike gets it as he sees the convict getting into a wet suit. And putting on the gear. Mike shoots a flare off to signal. The guards on alcatraz hoping it works. Mike is now fully rigged mask wetsuit. Tank regulator weight belt and knife and their high tailing it off against a strong title current. But larry turns and he spots mike. He's going to fight a rearguard action while johnny and markswoman. It's a knife fight. And it's a good one larry's tough clever and slippery but might get behind. Him cuts his air hose and brings him to the surface. And that's where we see. Mike's knife into larry's first stage. The flare did its job. And there's a patrol boat from the island coming on the scene that's one bronson in the bag on the boat. They followed the brothers bubbles and when they catch up mike dies back in lights off a flare and pokes it at the brothers and another massive underwater fight breaks out mike pulls off marks masks shuts air off and shoves him johnny he then puts johnny in a stranglehold and brings the two brothers to the surface. Mike has thwarted escape attempt. Larry says on the boat. It was a pretty good scheme. Yeah mike doesn't think so. Wow this first. Episode new year was jam packed with some great underwater fight scenes. I guess they really wanted to get everyone excited about the show again. And you most definitely will recognize johnny bronson. That was leonard. Nimoy yes mr spock. He shows up again. So that's the alcatraz story from nineteen fifty-nine the first episode of season. Two of seon. Hope you enjoyed it. I'll be back again soon with another installment of seon. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio.

Wet Notes - 4-9-21

"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

WHO team urges patience after 1st look for origin of virus

"How and when did the cove in 19 pandemic start this morning, The World Health Organization released its report on the origins of the pandemic. NPR obtained a copy of that report, which says the virus was likely circulating for months before a big outbreak in Wuhan, China, in late 2000 and 19, and that it did not begin in a seafood market there. The report goes on to call for further studies. Earlier this morning, I talked to Peter Dash Shack. He's an expert on how animal viruses can infect humans, and he was part of the team. That went to China to prepare this report. I asked him where the W H O thinks the virus originated. Well, what we're really saying is, we don't know exactly whether the one the one on seafood market in Wuhan was the source or not, it still could be. But it's also possible that other places within the region where the origin that the place where the virus first got into People. In fact, you know, with trace back from that market that the suppliers of food to the market, which includes wildlife from all across China, including places in rural China, where we know the nearest viruses in bats, for instance, exists and it may have started there. Okay, Let's talk about the there that you mean you're talking about farms in rural China. We are. We're using the term or have been using the term wildlife farms. Can you explain what these farms are? This is a network of wildlife farms that was really promoted of the last few decades in China as a way to alleviate policy. Very successful people would catch wild life. Things like Sivits, Sorry badges, Reckon dogs bamboo rats and breathe them in captivity and sell them to restaurants or wildlife markets for

Project Sealab 1 Report Part 2

"Today wanna conclude my two part series on the project sea lab one summer report from june of nineteen sixty five to recap impart one. I chuck through the background. Information contained in the report c. Labs sea trials and the ultimate successful placement at one hundred ninety three feet off of argo island near bermuda. You might recall that. The four aqua dots anderson barth manning in thompson had just entered a habitat on july twentieth. Nineteen sixty four for their eleven day mission first off. They needed to make repairs on all the systems that were not operable. The initial report says that the subjects sounds like a clinical experiment which i guess it was slowed their pace in that fatigue coupled with shoulder joint discomfort was noted their appetites were good and digestion and elimination where normal also the report stated that their sensory perception remained unchanged and the joint discomfort eased with time. Now there are quite a few photographs in the report of the men in and around. See lab during the mission. Unfortunately the photos are not really that. Good copy i have well. What worked did they do. According to the report the subjects performed work tasks outside of c. lab investigating marine life cleaning debris on the ocean floor surrounding c. lab taking pictures of their operations in photos of the small one man. Submersible called star one which was sent into the area for evaluation. Also described are two significant incidents that occurred during the mission one of which was a serious nature. The other was related to nitrogen narcos and that hit to team members the nitrogen narcos incident actually happened when two of the aqua noughts entered the transformer room of the lab without dr mark six gear. It says that they immediately experienced coaches had to leave and then helium was pumped in to prevent further issues with nitrogen marcos's. The more serious incident happened when manning apparently struck his gas control yoke against a habit and it accidentally closed it as he was depleting gas supply. He knew that something was wrong and made a hasty return to see and lost consciousness as he entered. Fortunately anderson heard manning's tanks see lab and found him lifted him above the water applied resuscitation and with the assistance of barth and thompson. He was saved. He remained active with the crew for the remainder of the mission. The only issue was a severe hemorrhage to the whites of his eyes on wednesday july. Twenty ninth nineteen sixty four. The mission was terminated due to unfavourable weather predictions and at twenty three fifty six. That's eleven fifty six. Pm c. lab was lifted off the bottom and the arduous task of recovering. The men and a habitat began on august. Fourth deok were taken out of decompression c. Lab equipment was packed and stowed for shipment and on april fourth nineteen sixty four at eleven thirty. A m readme. Jk laden chief of naval research congratulated sess and officially terminated c. lab one. Some interesting things were noted for example in the first paragraph of the summary. Report it states. The men during the occupancy lab accentuated their personal idiosyncrasy during one period excessive use of foul language developed as well as an independent attitude with respect to the surface support guests. They didn't appreciate papa topside trying to control them now. I want to quickly cover some of the findings. No surprise was that handling of the habitat was difficult. Especially when there were waves they also found that nitrogen percentage decreased over time as it was being absorbed by the sea water and could use compressed air to make up the o. Two since nitrogen absorbed four times faster than oh two and the helium didn't dissipate. Another finding was that the hookah system failed to perform satisfactorily. Apparently the pumps were noisy. Overloaded easily report also outlines some findings on the men one interesting note was regarding the selection process. It said that there might have been too many potential leaders leading to an unwarranted degree of independence below. The conclusions stated that human subjects could live and work under pressure and one hundred ninety three feet and while all major systems work many were primitive. The report suggested that the divers could spend six hours outside each day also provision for adequate body heating while swimming around was a major problem even though the water temperature was sixty nine degrees fahrenheit the project. Sea lab summer report concludes with a series of recommendations and those recommendations include a better handling system a higher degree of independence from surface support assigning one man full-time to housekeeping they dry vehicle for transporting and a final recommendation that a c. lab task group of twenty five to thirty five people involved in future. Rnd in the man in the programs be put in place so that concludes part two of the c. lab one office of navel research report from nineteen sixty five. We know now that c. lab to went to a successful mission before the tragic events of c. Lab three but in one thousand nine hundred sixty four at the height of the space race. We were also exploring interspace

Wet Notes - 3-28-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for sunday march twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I want to give you an update from reef or the reef environmental educational foundation. They have released their two thousand and twenty two field survey trips and it's pretty neat. They have eleven trips. Planned in two thousand and twenty two starting with saint vincent in february and that is being led by amy lee. For those of you who listen to the show. I had amy on the show last july. They also have a cuba trip in march followed by raja arm pot in april. May june will feature saint lucia and roett tan. july is. the red sea and hawaii is in august. The september two thousand and twenty two baht trip is already sold out grand. Cayman is october bon. Air's in november and the year closes out in december. In 'cause you might wanna take a look at the reef website for all the details availability and pricing. These trips. look pretty awesome last week ned. who's a dive master at. The shop passed on a new york times article about looking for climate solutions and this article was written by catrine einhorn. Essentially she reported that ocean bottom trawling for shrimp whiting. Cod and other fish emits as much carbon dioxide into the air as the entire globalization industry. Now this was based on a study published in the journal. Nature and it was pretty enlightening. About how trawling releases. Immense amounts of carbon from the ocean floor and that leads to more acidification of the water and that reduces the oceans capacity to absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide. You can check out the entire article on the new york times website look for climate solutions by katrina einhorn. There's another piece of good news. Out of molly s this month. The honolulu star advertiser reported that a trained response team was able to free young. Humpback whale from gear entangling. It's left pictorial flipper. They were able to free about fifty to one hundred feet of line from the flipper but not we're able to get the Entangled line out of its mouth. They are hoping that that will ultimately free itself. They haven't seen the whale since it was freed. Apparently it wasn't in great shape but at least now it has a chance. They recovered gears being analyzed to see if they can determine the origin now. The efforts were led by the hawaiian humpback whale national marine sanctuary in partnership with cardinal point captains k key koala project and ultimate whale-watch. Now i've had the opportunity to go out with ultimate whale-watch from lana. A couple of times was very happy to hear of their support. We carry a lot of aqualung equipment in our shop and like most businesses twenty twenty taught many of us a lot of lessons. Well i recently sent out a message that they are introducing. A new aqualung is a bit of a rebranding. They're using a new tagline beyond the expected in the message. They said the twenty twenty taught them to expect the unexpected time to seek out the unexpected. If you check out the aqua lung website they further state that they are for the ocean exploration for ocean understanding and for ocean conservation. The aqua lung site also has a really inspiring short two minute video to get you inspired. Stay tuned for more from akwa. Long as they go beyond the expected earlier in the week. I got an email from nicole. Russell dima vice president of operations and i e mail had a lot of different information but one of the items that stood out said las vegas is open for business that means they are in fact planning to hold the demon. Show two thousand twenty one in las vegas in person and not some very exciting news. There was a learn more link in the email that took you to the dive equipment and marketing association's website where they gave you a list of all the trade shows conventions and meetings scheduled in las vegas of over five thousand or more attendees in the next twelve months. Now that was an interesting list. F why the marijuana business daily or m j biz con two thousand twenty. One is expected to draw thirty thousand people. And it's just one month before dima for all you dive pros out there. Mark your calendar for demon show two thousand twenty one november sixteenth to nineteenth in las vegas. Nevada can't wait to get back to dima and finally earth day two thousand twenty one is less than a month away earth day is actually april twenty second however it looks like this year. They are promoting three days of climate action. It starts on april twentieth. There are three lead organizations working on this educational international or education international the hip hop caucus and earth uprising will will be organizing three separate parallel climate action summits on april twentieth and twenty first ahead of president biden's global leaders climate summit on april twenty. Second what a difference a year makes. What a different political climate additionally earth day dot org will be producing the second earth day live digital event on april twenty second.

I think you sat in on one yesterday. Was it how that goes so I did sit in on the Patty Webinar. And they've had a couple of questions that they sent out to all the listeners to are you using any online classes And it was about fifty fifty some are implementing some of the online stuff and many are not And they had a question about whether or not you intend to do. Any of those types of classes as well coming up in just a few Of The classes that are that don't require dives are good classes to do virtually or online. We have the The equipment specialists class were doing virtually Montes got the classroom wall. Set up for that and then In addition to Patty I know you. You had a chance to talk with divers alert network this week. Wh WHAT ARE THEY DOING. They have opened up a lot of their Talks that they have that are normally for members only They've opened up their website to anybody. Who would like to go in and listen to them? They all run. You know about fifteen minutes so it's not a lot of time But you can go in and pick the topics that you're interested in Manage no charge for that right now. They've opened it up to everybody. So you can go to Dan divers alert network and go to I believe it's there well. I can't remember if it's how they what they call it but they're you know they're talking about this stuff. They've got a lot of stuff out there if you take the time to poke around on the Dan Website so So things are are are still going. We've got scooby shock On hiatus a little bit Kinda shifted over here to the House. I know you're monitoring email and checking voice mail now a lot of traffic as you said but we're hoping that we get through this year presume but one last question before we wrap up What's for dinner tonight? You know I don't I don't until about five minutes before kick it out. We'll have to go in more than one chocolate chip cookies today while you've been awfully nice to meet during the envy so yeah you can have. Okay okay well. That's our first episode here with this new clean feed. Let's see out goes and we might get it on a future episode of Scooby Shack Radio Bikes. Jeff.

"Did you have have heroes when you were younger. Real Heroes Real people. I'm of a certain age. Were my heroes. Were seven American pilots. Who became the mercury seven astronaut? Not these seven men Alan Shepard Gus Grissom John. Glenn Wally Chirac Gordon. Cooper deeks Layton and Scott Carpenter or who many young boys stories like me want it to be like a couple of these guys. I followed them to the Naval Academy. But I didn't pursue being pilot. That's another story but like like one of them. Scott Carpenter. I followed him to the ocean. Scott Carpenter was born in May of nineteen twenty five and he died in October. Two thousand thousand thirteen at the age of eighty eight his path to becoming a mercury astronaut is fascinating and you can read all about that and his book that he co authored with his daughter titled for Spacious Skies Guys. It's a great read but Scott was more than an astronaut. He was also a knock. Were not his only spaceflight was in May of nineteen sixty two. You and that was three months after John Glenn's orbital flight and you can hear Scott on John Glenn's flight with the uttering the phrase Godspeed John Glenn now that was his only flight that he ever took in space and there was a lot of controversy about it related to how he piloted the capsule and landing so with Scott not being able to fly again or not having a flight he decided to pursue another path in the book that he co authored with his daughter they discuss. How Scott was not scheduled to make another flight with NASA so he decided to pursue something different and he wanted to go to a lecture at Mit to hear Jacques Cousteau speak and then he approached him with a proposal that he wanted to join jock? Cousteau's rose divers. They had some dialogue and and jot determined that it might be a good idea of Scott work with the US Navy. Now Scot wasn't even a diver from the account in his book. He was exposed to the ocean when he was stationed in Hawaii and they talk about him snorkeling with his family family often ever beach. Remember being outed of a beach for some softball games when I was stationed out there in the Navy I guess being a national channel Hero has some advantage so he was able to connect with George Bond. Who is heading up to navy saturation diving program at the time and planning C.? Lab One Scott joined the program I he needed to learn how to dive. Obviously not that great of a challenge for someone who ventured into space he was was supposed to be part of the crew on C. Lab one but right before the mission he crashed his motor. Scooter in Bermuda the site of C.. Lab One and was a pretty bad accident and he was had had to be evacuated. Now they didn't know Scott was ever going to be able to die again but he was cleared an actually he was named. CEO of the C.. Lab To mission which was going to be off California in two hundred feet of water and it was actually a nice tat where ten men would live for fifteen days. Each Scott stayed for thirty while on that mission He got stung by a Scorpion working fish and was in pretty bad and painful State but there was caused concern but He stated out for thirty days now while Scott was on there. There's there's a film that the Navy had produced it's vintage archives. It's about thirty minutes long and you can look at it. That goes into all of the C- lab too and it shows Scott playing playing the Ukulele while he's down in NC lab to And then there's also a scene where he's talking to Gordon Cooper one of his mercury seven buddies who was on a Gemini flight at the time so he was talking from the ocean floor to the Gemini Capsule that was In orbit and Scott was going to be part of C. Lab three but He was no longer able to dive. I've so he wasn't cleared for saturation diving. So then therefore he went back to NASA where he was working with the astronauts and one of the things it was interesting is he was instrumental in introducing the pool training as a simulator for weightlessness in space first. They were very skeptical about doing it. But it proved who've to be Quite innovative so Scott Carpenter was not only an astronaut. WHO's also an awkward not He's one of my heroes growing up in a great American hero and another link in our diving history.

"Do you have a four ocean bracelet. I got one. I got the jellyfish bracelet a team of this this year and I got that by signing the four ocean. Pledge Book there to do one thing to protect the ocean environment but just what is for Ocean to unique organization and they have a simple purpose and that is in the ocean plastic crisis. And how did they want to do this. I just cleaning the ocean and the coastline and second stopping the inflow of plastic based on changing consumer habits. It's an organization nation founded on optimism. The founders are a couple of guys Andrew Cooper and Alex Schultz and they started for ocean in January of two thousand seventeen. It's a global organization that is trying to attack the plastic crisis from all angles. There's a couple apple youtube videos out there by the founders Andrew and Alex and I'll post those on the Scuba Shack Radio facebook page later so you'll have an opportunity to take a look at them Andrew and Alex our college friends and surfers when they were on a surf trip of a lifetime to Bali and got there and they were disappointed with all the plastic that was on the beach so they asked the locals about why didn't clean the beach. The response it was they had they'd cleaned beach but so much came right back in. Its place so they wanted to do something about it. They created the business model where they would sell bracelets and for each bracelet that they sold. They would pledge to remove one pound of trash from the ocean or coastline navy do this by paying workers to fund cleanups and then they could also make donations to other organizations stations that needed scale in their cleanup efforts. Now it is not a non nonprofit organization organization and it does not accept donation it is funded exclusively by the four ocean products. That they sell right now. There are over twenty different bracelets that you can get is that each bracelet has a different colored lanyard that represents something in the marine world for example. There's a bracelet for the Manta Ray Bracelet for the sharks for the everglades for the dolphins jellyfish. One I just mentioned the seahorse you can see them all when their website. I think I'm trying to decide. What is the next bracelet that I wanNA get approximately sharks? Maybe that's the one that I'll go for. They also sell products hats and t shirts and they're all cotton ought not so there's no synthetic or micro fibers to pollute the ocean. If you look out there they also sell drink wear reusable the Yeti tumblers ambler bottles. I guess the good news is those are sold out so It's making a difference. There's also single use alternatives. There are a reusable Chico bag that you can get from four ocean as well one of the other things. It's pretty interesting is you can can go and look at their tracker and they show the amount of trash that they have removed from the ocean since two thousand seventeen they. They removed seven point four million pounds of trash from the ocean coastline. You can also look at what's been done weekly now. They operate out of the US. In Florida Haiti and Indonesia also was really cool was when we were down. Dima Patti hit teamed up with four ocean so patty for Ocean project aware all working together to help sustain the oceans. So I encourage you to go take a look at the four ocean. Website support them. They're a not a nonprofit profit they don't accept donations and they really are making a difference looking forward to my next bracelet.

"When I was planning to show I wanted to do an update on the recent causing l.. I reported earlier this year in my blog that the race in causing all were closing in October because of stony coral tissue lost disease and they expected those reefs to be opening up again in December. But I wasn't able to find anything specific about the reefs opening back up again. Also a lot of our divers like to dive in the Florida keys. Not as also being impacted by the stony coral oral tissue lost disease. So I thought I'd do a little bit of an update there on that particular item quick recap stony coral tissue loss disease. Zeze is a lethal disease. That was first reported in two thousand fourteen in Florida now while its causes are unknown own. They suspect that it's bacterium. That's causing the disease. Since it was first reported in Florida back in two thousand and fourteen it spread read to Jamaica. The Mexican Caribbean Saint. Martin Saint Thomas and Dominican Republic. Now there are some highly susceptible type of coral to the disease and they are particularly brain coral pillar coral elliptical star coral smooth. smooths floral maze. Choral those are the ones that are highly successful now in doing some research. I came across this great website right. It's called A. G. R. A. Or the Atlantic Golf Rapid Reef Assessment Program. And and it's a program that Champions Coral Reef Conservation an empowers those who protect these diverse ecosystems and it was first started in Nineteen Nineteen ninety-seven by Dr Robert N Ginsburg now. The goals of age E. R. R. A. R. doc scientifically typically sound comparable regional surveys of the health of coral reefs promoter collaborative learning platform training exchange and open access Advance our scientific understanding of coral reefs analyzed data results and provide easy access to data and serve as a catalyst list to conserve impacts partnerships create effective communications to a wider audience. Now if you go to the A. G. You are a website that's h. e. r. Dot Org and you click on the coral disease outbreak. You get a lot of Information related related to the stony coral tissue loss disease. It provides the description characteristics latest news tracking tracking the disease and provides several videos that you can actually look on the website now. What's so different about? Stony coral tissue loss US disease well first of all there are many coral species that are impacted by this particular Malady it's got a high prevalence. There's a rapid mortality rate in the coral. They're high rate of transmission and it goes over a large geographic area and it is taking a long duration so it's very different than things they found in the past now some good news Florida has introduced some interventions and they seem to be helping out and they're using topical applications of either chlorine or Amoxicillin they're also using some poxy to help save the corals what they're also doing some so nappy tation where they cut off the disease part and allow the rest of the according to to grow and then there's also some relocation they actually move the coral from one area to another that's not impacted by disease now. Amoxicillin seems to any more effective than the chlorinated treatments that they've been using So there's a lot going on here with stony coral tissue loss disease. I would encourage you take a look at this Go out to the age E. R. R. A. Website And you'll get a lot of great information on this and see just what's happening. We're hoping that the reef soap and soon in Causa Mel and let's also hope that we get this disease under control in back in two thousand eighteen. We had a booth at the Hebron Harvest Fair here in Connecticut and women came up to to me at the booth and said that her father in law introduced scuba diving to the United States and his name. Was Jim Kale. That's interesting so I figured I'd do a little bit more research on. That took me a little bit of time but I finally got around to it first off. Jim was a navy defraud. Men were formerly known as the UT in he was actually when one of the first classes of the ut called the Amphibian Rogers Rogers after you get out of the navy. He wanted to continue diving so he started a salvage business and not alternately turned into into a company called New England dive in that went pretty much countrywide. They were doing a lot of work around the country. Jim was born in one thousand nine hundred ninety six and he passed away in two thousand eight and you can read a lot about him on his wikipedia page now. According to wikipedia Jim was a now. He Co founder. In if you go out to the Boston Sea Rovers page. He was also an original member of the Boston. Ymca Sea Rovers now. There's a quote on the wikipedia page says cousteau invented scuba diving Piquet Hill introduced to the United States. A couple of other interesting things You know he started the WHO. We caught by scuba training camp camp which was on children's island in Salem Massachusetts and apparently he started that with buster crabb. Who's the actor who played Tarzan? Also it says that he consulted to Lloyd bridges on Seahawk. Haven't been able to verify that in any of my research with C. on but that's an interesting tidbit now. One of the things that I came across on the Wikipedia page was a reference and it was to a book written by. Jim's brother. Bob Okay and that book is called diary of the depths and it was published in nineteen seventy two by Robert Ellis Kahlil. Now it's really interesting. Read I found. I was able to get a copy from Abe books and It's a really quick. Read and it recounts stories by Jim Along with several of other stories of Robert himself and then there's a couple of other divers that talk about Some of their adventures in diary of the depths. One of the interesting ones Is a couple of chapters by a fellow named Frank Sanger S. A. N. G. E. R.. And Frank was a double amputee. Who Lost an arm and a leg when he was two years old and a trolley act in peabody Massachusetts but frank became a very accomplished diver and worked a lot with Jim couple of stories? Jim Recounts his training as the U. D. T. Frogman in. He talks also about his time in Greenland where they were sent to blow up icebergs and also also some of the work that he had to do under the ice in recovering. Soldiers lost in a truck accident there. Also a couple of chapters in there. Were Jim Bob. Talk about. The workday did in underwater evidence recovery in a very publicized murder case in Massachusetts couple of chapters that are stories by Frank. Sanger recount the work that he did recovering bodies on a lear. Jet That went down on in Boston harbor and also worked at. They did on trying to recovery bodies from something called the Texas Tower which was the tower built way out in the Atlantic about sixty miles out as a radar intercept during the cold. War in Texas Tower went down in a storm and they were sent out to try and and save a anybody that might have been in the Texas Tower. Unfortunately no one was saved but Frank recounts some of the interesting and hazards of that dive so it took me a little bit different direction. Action trying to research Jim K.. Hill to diarrhea the depths in some of the history of New England diving. But I thought I'd pass along very interesting interesting stuff in the history diving. The United States is pretty pretty pretty cool.

"Resorts both Puerto Galera and Dumaguete in the Philippines. It was outstanding. We made it out in New York just ahead of the snowstorm on December. I got to Manila on the evening of December. Second just ahead of the typhoon. Typhoon caused a suspended an extra day in Manila as the storm passed before we had a down to Puerto Galera but the typhoon didn't do a lot of damage so we were able to get in our dives down in Puerto Galera. I'll be talking more about the Atlantis dive resorts in the next episode Scuba Shack Radio when I featured in your next dive. Also I WANNA say There was a big win yesterday for the Navy football team as they snapped a three-game every game losing streak to army. So congratulations to the midshipmen. Were all pretty happy here in the household here about the navy win so now let's get on with the show it from the beginning of my diving career. I've always carried a camera. Underwater water zoom matter of fact on my first diving key largo. I had a disposable film camera. You just shot at what you wanted to take a picture of named and send out your film to be developed in hope that you got something good. The pictures were very blue and very grainy so from there I it went on to a digital sealife camera with a strobe. It took some great underwater shots not satisfied with stills. I switched switched over to a video camera and I went with a Sony HD video camera that shot tape because back then the Kodak's for HD video radio weren't well established and I bought a gates housing for it. Then I went back to stills and got a Canon G. Twelve took awesome great shots still wanted to go to video so I went to a Gopro. Now is really a pretty cool camera and we still have that and shoot video with the GOPRO. Oh still photography a little bit better and I went with the Nikon w three hundred without a housing and took that underwater into water very lightweight and compact. But I didn't really like the way. The underwater shots came out so while Dima I had a chance to talk to a number of vendors urge and decided to go with a package and the package on went with his from eight light. And it's the Olympus t g six with the light housing now. That package comes pretty pretty good package. It comes with the camera it comes with the accolade housing the action trae to with the left handle hello. DRC ONE TTL receiver for those of you. That don't know T. L. stands for through the Lens and that means that it's a receiver that adjusts the flash power our to properly exposed to subject and also comes with a fiber optic core the DS fifty one strobe and a compact ball arm for quick quick release after talking to Jean Ride. Berg there who runs Ike Light. We also opened up as part of their dive store. Twenty twenty program where We will be able to pass on some great savings to our customers gene suggestion. I also got the wide angle three three inch dome port for it and that was for doing work in the Philippines now when you use the td six that has Several underwater modes olds. There's a normal mode a wide mode a macro and a microscope mode for shooting under water near our three filter settings that you can say shallow shallow nude in deep now. I didn't have a lot of time to really Learn how to use the camera before we left. I only got it like a couple of days before we. We actually left for the Philippines so it can be a little intimidating. I burn still learning how to use it. What I did find? I found it Quite challenging to do some of the macro or microscopic work underwater. My eyes are a little bit of a challenge. I think I need a new prescription on my mask. So we'll be working in on that as well also. I need to take some time to learn more about the strobe at settings when you use them and how to position it overall this is a very very powerful setup and can be expanded when we were in Portugal Awry. We did a trip over to verity island which it's just an amazing Underwater adventure and I used a three inch wide angle in a wide mood underwater and got some really nice shots of of the expansive. The Pinnacle Now I also was shooting In both Jay Peg Ross. So you get to two images ages when you shoot. You GotTa J. Peg in a raw image now. I do some pretty basic photo. Editing and I primarily Murli use iphoto for some cropping and adjustments in white balance and things like that not very powerful. But one thing. I- photo you cannot do. Is Edit the raw photos but what you can do. Is You can download a program from Olympus it's called Olympus Works base and you can then edit the raw images in in that I played around with it a bit but haven't really had had enough time to to work with it now. Also you can get an additional Dome Port Sixteen Stone Report for that or that light housing for the Olympus t g six if you really Wanna get even wider angles so now. I'm hoping that that this is the camera that I'm going to use and really learn how to get the most out of. I've got a lot of work to do to to get get up to speed with it. But if you're looking for a reasonably affordable alf outfit for underwater photography take a look at the. You're quite package for the Olympus t g six.

"Are Open water class. We're introduced to basic underwater navigation on those last two dives. We were required to use a compass both on the surface and underwater. Pretty simple navigation just an out and back reciprocal bearing now using a compass. Underwater and being able to navigate effectively is important skill and you can mash straight over time. I know it took me a little bit of time to trust the compass and and to keep things simple most people are probably familiar with classic analog compass they know that the needle always points to to the north and they understand the components like the rotating Basil And the Lubber line while not going to try to teach underwater underwater navigation in this podcast or how to use a compass. But rather I wanted to talk a little bit about my Go-to Compass and why my my compass of choice is the Sinto S. K.. Eight in the Susanto S. K.. Eight is a liquid filled compass and it's billed as the world's most popular dive dive compass. Now they claim that both the northern and southern hemisphere models can be used over a wider area of the globe and that's primarily because of the upgraded magnets in the compass now from a measurement standpoint if you think about The compass the euro as its round. But if you look at it in a square pattern it's probably two and a half inches by two and a half inches on square square in about one point seven two inches high. So it's pretty low profile. It's not very big You can get it in a wrist. I strap version or a bungee mount and some people do put them in their consoles. Now I prefer the Bungee Mount now. I know that some of our divers like strap they just feel. It's a little more secure and it goes on a little bit easier than the Bungee gene now. One of the biggest benefits of this compass is its ability to function with a high degree of till now you can tilt this compass compass plus or minus thirty degrees and that they claimed that that's about two to three times larger till than most compasses. This is out there now. The Basil Ratchets every fifth degree. So what that means is it's very smooth turning on the Basil and also so it it doesn't it's not susceptible to dirt debris really clogging it up so it smooth turning in in all conditions. Now there are also digital. Compasses and I've had a number of them. But I've never really taken the time to practice navigating and had a digital compass on a soon to- d-6 computer my Souto Viper and also on my perfect say I in one of the reasons I never really took. The time was because I found that they they were very sensitive to movement so I started focusing in on the computer and trying to stabilize the compass to the point where it was very distracting. And I wasn't really paying attention to what was going on around me so I decided to use my computer for dive related Information Asian and use my analog compass for navigating now that doesn't mean that that's the only way to do it. Some people are very good with the digital compasses and use them quite. Yeah well I just haven't taken the time to practice but my go-to compass and if you're looking for a really reliable a highly effective analog all compass. You can't go wrong with the Sutanto S. K.. Eight.

"Originally. I wanted to do a segment on recycled plastic clothing. How great ideas that we take plastic waste out of our oceans and the landfills and we turned it into the fabric brick? That produced clothing. Sounds like a no brainer in sustainability. Well researchers have found that well intentions may be doing more harm than good in the plastic recycled clothing arena why because these synthetic fibres release micro fibers when they're washed and they're tiny synthetic threads that are less than one millimeter in size in they may be the biggest source of plastic that are being dumped in the ocean according to Dr Mark Brown who is an ecologist and post post doctoral fellow at the national center of ecological analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara California the spin in rinse cycle of of a washing machine sheds a large number of plastic fibres an east fibers can't be filtered for example he estimates that one synthetic synthetic garment can produce one thousand nine hundred Micra fibers per wash with fleeces being the worst so billions of people washing billions of garments billions of times a year. You do the math. Plus there's another aspect of these little micro synthetic fibres they absorb toxins so the synthetic fibres with the toxins will work our work their way up the food chain now. Five gyor's the organization organization that worked on the microbial leads in cosmetics and Other abrasives are now turning their attention to micra fibers. So we'll we'll see if there's GonNa be some solutions for this in the future. Dr Brown has had a hard time getting the textile companies to listen. He's got a project called benign by design Did talk a little bit with autumn. Bloom down the stream to see About her her rash guards that she had out there and we had a very interesting talk about the fabrics that are used in it now. She uses epinal Equiano which is E. ACO NY l.. Essentially that's really recycled nylon. And it's using nylon that's been discarded and repurpose purpose. So it's a it's a really a closed loop system so if you have a chance to research do that pretty interesting. There's also a fabric called reprieve and that's made exclusively out of recycled plastic bottles. So what can we do about these micro fibers. Being released. A A couple of things one of them is you can hand wash certain things in that will cut down on. The number of micro fibers released the other aspect that you can and do. There's something called guppy friend their bags that you can put in the washing machine you can put your garments in those washing In the washing machine and captures the micro fibers and then there's something also called core of. CRA balls there. They go in the wash. You just put them in the washing asking machine and they apparently attract The the microphone. Finally there is something you can do on your washing machine itself. And it's called Lint v Dash to our. It's actually a filter that you can bolt on to the discharge of your washing machine which will capture sure alive. The microphone so again originally started out plastic recycled plastic clothing. Great idea but there's always a different aspects aspects that we have to consider and You know there are solutions out there so just be mindful of them and really look for those products. That may have canola in them because that seems to be a really cool way of recycling nylon and fishing nets.

"There was an article in the latest alert diver magazine from divers alert network that talked about diving in green protected areas well I thought I dive a little bit deeper into just what a marine protected area is so as always do a little research going out and found that there's a lot of great information out there on the National Oceanographic in administrate an atmospheric administration webs site under Marine Protected Areas DOT N-O-A-A DOT GOV in it was tracing it back as to how just marine protected areas came to be being in a pointed me in the direction of an executive order by the president of the United States and it was an executive order one three one in five eight that was signed by President Bill Clinton in May of two thousand and the purpose of the executive order her was to help protect significant natural and cultural resources within the marine environment for the benefit of present in future generations by strengthening and expanding the national system of marine protected areas so back in two thousand President Clinton in was looking to expand marine protected areas as a result of that we can now say that there are twelve hundred under it marine protected areas in the United States and they encompass three point two million square kilometers of space that represents twenty six percent of all the US waters out there and twenty three percent prohibited commercial fishing and to put it in perspective the marine protected areas cover about one point four times the amount of the land space of the United States but the definition of a marine protected area is any area of the marine environment that has been reserved by federal all state territorial tribal or local laws or regulations to provide lasting protection for part or all the natural and cultural resources there in now it didn't all start in two thousand it actually traces back to the early nineteen seventies and way back then there was a law passed called the National Marine Sanctuary Act and that was signed in one thousand nine hundred seventy two and it had been amended and reauthorized several times now why did they pass this law back in nineteen Seventy two well as early as one thousand nine hundred sixty eight there were eleven bills introduced into Congress because of various things we're going on particularly there was concern about the dumping of nerve gas and oil waste off the coast of Florida and then all the law passed the law has been amended several times nineteen eighty eighty four eighty eight ninety to ninety six and again the last time time was in two thousand in it actually authorized funding at the time through two thousand and five and it went from thirty two million in funding up to forty million in two thousand and five if you read that law a little bit it talks about the it the marine protected areas fall under the secretary of Commerce there are procedures written in there for how they get designated the prohibited activities that should or could not occur in a sanctuary the enforcement aspects of it for example a criminal offenses six months in jail plus a fine or if you're a weapon used or bodily injury ten years and then civil elise can be up to one hundred thousand dollars per day there's researching education associated with it and then things around destroyed Auctioning loss of the environment while I was a little curious about where the money comes from for marine protected areas marine sanctuaries and I guess it's under the Noah budget so I looked into the Noah budget for both two thousand nineteen thousand in twenty the good news for two thousand and nineteen was even though the current administration tried to cut back the Noah budget significantly it was fun the to almost its full requirements but that's not the the end of the news The two thousand and twenty budget calls for some significant cuts in the Noah budget specifically in the areas of ocean and coastal management services and climate research so hopefully those funding will be restored so we can continue on the great work on the marine protected areas in the great work that no is doing I did notice in the The brochure for the Dima Conference or Dima show that there will be a a presentation called diving in to your ocean parks in lending your voice and it's going to be by John Armor director of Noah's Ocean in National Marine Sanctuary so I'm hoping that I'll be the gets the funding necessary.

"If you've listened to this podcast or you have been able to read my weekly blog at scuba shack website you'll know that I'm a firm believer in climate change real and climate change is really impacting one of our tenants of our mission which is to advocate for ocean health and sustainability How much evidence do we need Recently on September twenty fifth two thousand in nineteen the intergovernmental panel on climate change and I typed accepted the summary for policymakers titled the Ocean and Kreis fear in a changing climate was accepted during the first session of the IPC which was held in the Principality of Monaco. Now there were fifty plus drafting offers authors of this summary For policymakers along with fifteen contributing authors and these were scientists and folks from all around on the world you can download the whole report on the IPC website and it's about a thou- well over a thousand pages when you see every getting in there on all the evidence that that supporting their their summary Now what is the crisis fear the crisis fear is defined components of the Earth System at and below the land and ocean surfaces that are frozen including snow cover glaciers ice sheets ice shelves icebergs sea ice late Geiss river ice permafrost and seasonally frozen ground now when you look at it the ocean comprises seventy one percent of the earth's surface while the cry of fear is about ten percent of the breath so eighty-one percent is being affected by climate change dramatically now the report also has defined their confidence levels from very low to very high in their findings and then also their likelihood of that things will happen as they describe I bh now the report on the summary For policymakers is broken down into three sections upfront which are the observed changes in impacts projected changes in risks and implementation of responses to the ocean cries fear what I thought so they're absorbed physical changes a one St over the last decades global warming has led to widespread shrinkage of the cries fear with masks loss of ice sheets and glaciers very high confidence reduction in snow cover high confidence and Arctic Sea ice extent and thickness the high confidence and increased permafrost temperature very high confidence that's finding a one eight two it is virtually the global oceans have warmed unabated since nineteen seventy and has taken up more than ninety percent of the excess heat in the climate system high confidence since nineteen ninety three the rate of ocean warming has more than doubled likely marine heatwaves are very likely doubled in frequency since one thousand nine hundred eighty two and are increasing in entity very high confidence by absorbing more co two the ocean has undergone increase surface acidification virtually certain a loss of oxygen in has occurred from the surface to one thousand meters medium confidence that's just the flavor of a couple of the observed changes in impacts you can read more about them on the report and it's the findings talk about global mean sea level rise the impacts on species in these areas the impacts to people.

"Think one thing we can all agree on. Is that every day we get one day older older in as we get older. I guess two questions become. Is it still safe to dive as we age in. Just what is that safe aged to dive in. What age should you stop diving. What's a hard question to <hes> to actually answer. There is a chapter after the complete diver the book by dr alex brill ski the chapter is titled as young as you feel diving in the effects of aging kind of find it funny that the chapter comes right after the chapter that's titled <hes> the next generation of what you need to know about your your kids in diving so <hes> dr brodsky talks a little bit about <hes> <hes> aging the fact that we talk about chronological age age versus physiological age in areas of difference <hes>. There's a lot of information that he puts in into this chapter. <hes> it's jam-packed packed talks about what's happening at the cellular level as we age how fitness effects are performance <hes> the difference difference how diseases might impact us in injuries. I think the big one that's out there is the idea around heart disease in the fact that ten percent of dive <unk> fatalities are <hes> are attributed to to heart disease now <hes> the the the chapter references a study that was conducted by by the duke university medical center and was published in the journal of applied. I physiology in february of two thousand and three that <hes> i i looked at that article up in their journal. Archives is in the article is actually titled effects of age and exercise on physiological dead space during simulated it dives at two point eight atmospheres absolute so essentially what they did is they took people into the hyperbaric chamber and simulated related dives up to sixty feet and they had a control group of younger divers and an older divers and what they found is that the the the c o two of that was built up was not any significantly different <hes> in the younger divers versus versus the older divers so aged in seem to have <hes> an impact there then there's also talks about our older divers riders more suspect to <hes> DCSS in thought behind that are that <hes> older divers produce more <hes> <hes> bubbles <hes> that can conform in in your tissue <hes> that will actually impact your <hes> <hes> your susceptibility to getting DC s and it really turns out to be <hes> just the age as we age. Our bodies have gone through a locked scar tissue. There's injuries and it takes a long time for an older body to <hes> to recover based on the the cell production coaching and things like that so it really interesting <hes> chapter in dr brodsky's book on aging in and how it affects diving then there was also an article in the one of the alert diver magazines from the summer of two thousand eighteen last year called hog scuba diving in life expectancy and he talked a little bit about well does scuba diving help you extend your life and it was kind of interesting little discussion there that that <hes> <hes> peter buzzer caught had with a couple of different <hes>. PHD's he's on on the effects of diving and how it impacts us <hes> as we grow older in reference to an idea around having two identical twins ends may be having one diver in one not be a diver and see what the effects are as they aged and hypothetical but they thought <hes> wow that that would be interesting to see if <hes> if diving actually makes us live longer. Let's hope so keep diving.

"Get the schedule adjusted for the rest of the year when and i looked at the calendar it turns out that we have a lot going on <hes> coming here in the next few weeks in september <hes> an end with our little came in trip in october demon in november and in the philippines in december. I wanted to get on a schedule so i could get to you every <hes> couple of weeks so a little bit earlier this time i also wanted to just <hes> take a moment to reflect back on the events of the past week very somber bring news with with the <hes> dive boat accident out in california terrible tragedy and our hearts go out to <hes> to the whole died community out there especially to the families families who lost loved ones also <hes> the devastating effects of the hurricane doreen down in the bahamas <hes> quite a a scene of utter disaster down there <hes>. It's going to take a really long time for that. Police to recover based on what i saw this morning on the news so again our thoughts let's go out to the bahamas and we're hoping for a speedy recovery as as can happen down there so a lot of somber news in dive community unity <hes> in in in the world <hes> this week when we first i started to learn to scuba dive we learned all about the equipment that we use to go diving with an important piece of equipment that we have is our scuba cylinder and and we're taught about the different types of scuba cylinders a different type of valves and things like that one of the things that we also talk about a lot is the inspections that are needed for the scuba cylinder and there's two types of inspections that we talk about obviously there's the hydro static test which is mandated by the united state's department of transportation and that's a five-year tests that <hes> has to be conducted on all compressed air cylinders but there's also also another inspection that we talk about and that's called the visual inspection and there's a question about where did it come from and is it mandatory mandatory and the fact is that <hes> the visual inspection is a scuba diving industry standard not a government standard and <hes> we all adhere to that and make sure that our cylinders are visually inspected every year otherwise we don't fill the tank so so where did that come from and i did a little research on this and found that <hes> it really became a standard <hes> coming out of a study study that was done by a group called the national underwater accident data center and it was it's a an organization organization or <hes> a facility that was started <hes> by a man a gentleman from the university of maryland john jay the NF in nineteen seventy and <hes> they commission to study at the university of rhode island for <hes> inspections of <hes> of scuba cylinders and the actual report which you can find online is called the <hes> <hes> scuba uber safeties report series report number one and it's conducted by the department of ocean engineering at the university of rhode island and it's on the corrosive study of steel scuba cylinders so if you read that report it goes into <hes> the the idea around around will why are scuba cylinders different than regular compressed air cylinders and and essentially it's because of the environment that the tanks are in with the water and assault conditions that could impact the cylinders into study <hes> goes in and talks about how they did subject jackson new brand new tanks to <hes> the environment and after a hundred days of corrosion tests the the tanks were <hes> <hes> severely corroded and probably would not have passed a <hes> a cylinder fill in could potentially exploded so their recommendations were that <hes> scuba tanks be subjected to a yearly inspection now the report also talks about about a program that had been implemented by the national association of skin diving stores and that was called their VIP. I pee program or visual inspection protection program and it was kind of interesting because they talked about for a dollar fifty. You could take your tank into any of these stores where they would actually open it up look inside and inspected and then put a sticker on it so that's kind of originated with <hes> with the dive stores back before the study and and really became something of a standard right after the study now there's also an organization <hes> that that we scuba shack utilize for our inspection training that's PSI ESI or professional scuba inspectors or professional cylinder inspectors and our technicians need to be <hes> <hes> trained by <hes> PSI and then have a recurring training every three years and really interesting article in the relationship latest dive newswire from eight twenty six where PSI PCI inc was warning of misleading advertising is it for somebody trying to confuse people about their training versus PSI PSI and you know <hes> these guys PSI aside PC. I wrote the book on inspection bill. Hi mark gresham they wrote the book and we're pretty proud to be a part of the environment for our cylinders inspections to keep people safe. So if you're interested you can go out there and look online at the report. It's fascinating <hes> they recommended commended that it become a law way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy but i guess we can still wait on washington cert- the pass certain types of loss <music>.
