The History of Spanish Africa
"I say that there are parts of spain and africa. I'm not trying to be tricky and play with words. I'm not saying that. Spain used to have colonies in africa. Although that's true. I'm also not trying to define the canary islands. Which are part of spain off the coast of africa as being in africa. I mean in the most literal sense possible. That part of spain is in africa. There are two very small spanish cities located on the peninsula which are on the african mainland ordering morocco and malia and their very existence as you probably would expect are due to historical quirks happenstance due to geography. Spain has always had a close relationship with africa finishes based in carthage in. What is today. Tunisia established settlements on the spanish coast. The roman province of hispania was part of a greater empire that included all of north africa. Which bordered the mediterranean after the roman empire fell islamic moors from north africa conquered and controlled spain for over seven hundred years. So there's always been a back and forth between north africa in the peninsula and malia both spanish territories in africa have different yet similar histories despite being about one hundred and thirty miles apart from each other. Sita is located directly across the sea from gibraltar. So if you ever want stump someone asks them. What country lies. Directly south of gibraltar and what country lies. North of gibraltar. answer is the same. Spain is on both ends. Sierra makes the counterpart to gibraltar for the pillars of hercules which the ancient names of the two promontories which guarded the strait of gibraltar. As with most everything in the region it has an ancient history. Carthage martina and numidians all control the area. Before the romans the you me add caliphate controlled it for centuries when the caliphate of cordoba fell in ten thirty one it was then passed between various north african kingdoms with support from various kingdoms in the iberian peninsula.
"Can be tough to try and make lifestyle choices that will help build a healthier world over and over we find out that one of our habits is contributing to climate change inequality or the destruction of earth's bio-diversity even habits. We thought were healthy. Take seafood for years. We were told that fish were an important part of a good diet but now we are learning that many of the fish we are used to eating or threatened species. Seafood is the largest traded food commodity in the world and it plays an essential role in our global diet for some people. Fish are a luxury but in many of the world's poorest and fastest growing populations it's a matter of survival at the same time relentless industrial fishing methods are pushing many species to the brink. If things don't change our fishing habits could devastate ocean bio-diversity and deplete a resource that humanity needs in order to survive. Fish are in trouble but the solution may not be what you expect. I'm gabrielle sierra. And this is why it matters today. Will there always be plenty of fish in the sea. What's over seventy six percent of the world's fish now or fish fished capacity overfished or collapsing and fifty years. The earth has lost more than half of its life. We completely destroy the natural balance of fish in the world's oceans. So are we going to run out of fish. If the current way that humans are fishing continues in the current practices remaining unchecked. That doesn't set up a good scenario for our future. My name is michelle curic. And i'm the vice president for ocean policy at the world wildlife fund. In the united states the pressure the amount of fish the frequency the quantities. That fishermen are taking out a really causing many stocks to be in very bad shape in terms of their future viability. I mean fish is one of the most heavily traded food commodities that we have fishing really is a big business in two thousand eighteen. The global export market reached an estimated value of one hundred and sixty four billion dollars. Asia is the leading region in the fishing industry with china south korea japan taiwan and one outlier spain fielding the most vessels globally the european union the united states and japan or the three places that consume the most fish by volume. And it's really valuable. Many different species are very high. Cost so there is a lot of profit to be made in catching fish. We have these manmade causes. These drivers these threats that are caused by you know just better technology. Bigger boats better refrigeration easier methods of transport and we have some of the man induced natural factors like climate change which are also changing the water quality the composition the affiliation of the water. That fish call home and some species can't adapt that well they move to different parts of the ocean to have a more hospitable climate and that then raises lots of political issues about get to catch. And how many if you've ever gone fishing. You know the drill a rod align a hook some bait and maybe a boat but modern day industrial fishing looks nothing like that. The boats and many fishing fleets are essentially gigantic floating factories inside. They have all the machinery necessary to process freeze and package. Hundreds of tons of fish per day guided two schools of fish by sonar and spotter planes. Some of these ships dragnets that are over a mile long sneering whole schools of fish that thereafter and many that they aren't after to some of the methods are shocking take bottom trawling which involves dragging massive nets across the ocean floor in the hopes of sweeping up fish the process destroys coral and other ocean floor ecosystems that are essential for all kinds of life just for one catch s fish populations decline these fleets are having to travel further from land and drag their nuts deeper in order to reach their targets when it comes to fisheries. There are two things that are important to know first about one in three fish. Stocks is overfished at that means that we are catching more than the population is able to produce by his branch. I'm the director of fisheries at the foot and organiz ation of the united nations. And i'm also a professor at the university of exeter in the uk to have an analogy with john king. We are eating into the capital rather than just using the interest that doesn't mean that we collapsing. The population is just. This is not sustainable. We need actually to change that. But we see a dichotomy of what is happening. Between developed countries and developing countries in developed countries. We see increasingly an improvement in sustainability status in developing countries. We see the opposite. We see it decrease in sustainability increasing volume of problems. Those are not easy to resolve.
A Chat with the CEO about the CRA's role in the COVID-19 response
"Ahmad. Welcome to around the room. Thank you thank you for having me. So ahmad within about two weeks of the sierra annual meeting the world essentially shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak at the beginning of the pandemic what were the initial challenges facing the sierra. A great question because we've been been monitoring the situation right before they osama and trying to communicate with the members in advance just to make sure that would ready for whatever might hit us and we were so lucky that it just missed us. Few days i would say But the main challenges were surrounding the attention span and the changing needs of our members they were instantly from the traditional optimal care practice management to a different level of practice management. Tyrod virtual care. I do. I do advocate for you. Know billing and there's there's all sort of new problems that of surfaced. We've kind of had those problems before. But they were very minor on the scale and suddenly they were the top three parties. Now that we have to deal with so there was a bit of a that kind of moment where you have to think about. What do we do. Who do we tap into. Because there aren't many experts in that field absolutely and and i'm curious to get even deeper into that. How did you actually pivot the organization from whatever your annual plan was to suddenly all resources and all hands on deck had to be working on the covid aspects of rheumatology in canada. How did you actually functional is that we're so lucky to have such an engaged membership about a third of our members are involved somehow with the sierra More than just attending a conference. I would say and that kind of gives us sort of a concert finger on the pulse in terms of what we can't what we should do and Sort of leadership one on one in crisis. What leaders to do is communicate. Communicate communicate so what we started with is first right off. The bat is started with communication and open up those channels of communication so we created the president's update the weekly update and that seemed to have been more very well received and we started creating opportunities for dialogue. We when we kind of needs assessment. And i'm surprised. How while responded to those needs assessments. Were but that was the basis basically of all our action is is listen communicate. Listen and respond as quickly as possible so so those were kind of the the issues that you're facing as a leader of the sierra and wondering personally what were some of the biggest challenges you you personally faced adjusting the reality that the kids are going to be at home all day long. I mean we're virtual organization and we did not really have a lot of business. Continuity issues like mini associations had to struggle. We don't have a bricks and mortar. We don't have an office. Mike commute consists of walking. Down from my. You know bedroom to the basement. So that wasn't an issue per se that having to go to office for gold going to office but the the idea that you know the kids are home all day long. you know. It's me and my spouse both was had to deal with that situation and you know it's also making me. My kids are young. They had to understand that when daddy's in the room and rooms closed and you could hear some sort of a conversation going on you just don't barge in. That was at the beginning though after a while. I think people are now sort of immune to these things. We've seen people on cnn where people are just walking in the back and actually this is some of the positive side you know side effects of the pandemic that these conversations and at least the video chat become a bit more human mean. You don't have to be polished so yeah. I think those are

Will Oysters Ever Make a Comeback in the Bay?
"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony.

A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back.

That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay.

There was so much confusion at the start about how to protect ourselves now year leader. We've learned a lot about how to stay safe and we've developed highly effective vaccines in record time. We're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel but there is at least one more hurdle that threatens to undo our progress all around the world wealthy countries are hoarding vaccine.

And this is why it matters today. Why a global pandemic needs a global response. It was almost a year ago but the country began shutting down from covert and for the first time. There seems to be a real reason. Have cautious optimism gets the vaccine when or not only serious questions that us but also around the globe in the global fight against covid nineteen is mutations good approving the next great challenge so we have a lot of really important stuff to talk about but i feel like one of those important things is that both you and i are south brooklyn children and i feel like it was really important to just get that out of the way Where were you. Where were you in south brooklyn. I'm from manhattan beach. You are from vincent hurst. i know. Wow you need no introduction but also start the way we always start which is what is your name and what do you do. My name is dr anthony fauci. And i'm the director of the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases at the national institutes of health. All right so let's say that a majority of americans were vaccinated tomorrow. Would we be fully in the clear. So if we got let's say seventy to eighty five percent of the people in the country vaccinated then we would be very much better off than we are now. But there's a real catch to your question. Because even if we got the overwhelming majority of the population vaccinated there is a big wide world out there and that's the global pandemic so if the rest of the world did not get covid nineteen or saws covy to under control. There would always be a looming threat over us that the virus would be mutating would be changing and we would get new variants that even if we felt ourselves protected in this country sooner or later of variant or mutation could come here and essentially circumvent protection of the vaccine. So i think when you think in terms of a pandemic you have to remember it is global and it requires a global response not just a single country response in the old days when we used to get on airplanes. You remember that what we can all travel one of the first things you get. Is this disembodied voice that would say in the event of a loss of cabin pressure. Oxygen masks will come down from the overhead. This is richard haass president of the council on foreign relations former director of policy planning for the state department adviser to presidents and my boss structured by this to put it on yourself and then only after you yourself and taking care of then you turn to your children your neighbors and others and that's our instinct year we've got to jettison that instinct unless the rest of the world get vaccinated. It doesn't just threaten their lives. It threatens hours to gossip. We don't take care of others. Variants will continue to break out and variants breakout over there. They will figure out a way to come here so then we end up in a race. That never quite ends that we'd never quite win to stay ahead of the curve. We have to understand variance and in order to understand variance. We have to understand mutations and in order to understand mutations we went to the country's medical explainer chief so what is a mutation. Where do they tend to come from. Why do we need to worry about them when viruses replicate which they do very very rapidly particularly when you have literally one hundred million people infected which is what we have right now in the world with over two point four million deaths when you have that amount of replication. as the virus replicates. It makes mistakes in reproducing itself. That's called a mutation
How The Covid Shock Nearly Destroyed The Financial System
"A year ago. Today we reduced stock market exposure and credit risk in the money for the rest of us plus adaptive model portfolios overall investment conditions were downgraded to read or bearish for the first time since money for the rest of us plus was launched back in december twenty fourteen economic trends have been read for nine straight months but with the uncertainty of the coronavirus and the sharp deterioration of market trends and mark momentum with very high fear among investors. We reduced risk. We took preventive action in the face of uncertainty. We weren't exactly sure what was going on. How bad it could get this past week. I read three government reports the report of the president's working group on financial markets overview of recent events and potential reform options for money market funds was published december. Twenty twenty i read. Us credit markets interconnectedness and the effects of the covid economic shock published by the us security and exchange commission published in october twenty twenty and i read the financial stability report published by the us federal reserve in november two thousand twenty after reading the reports. I was frankly alarmed about how bad things could have gotten had the federal reserve not stepped in in their role as lender and liquidity provider of last resort without the fed and other central banks. There would have been a full-blown financial meltdown. Things had gotten that bad. Even in the safest areas of the market money market funds the trading of us treasury bonds. Then there is an interconnectedness in markets from the riskiest to the safest. That isn't an appreciated. I had an experience. This past week with interconnectedness. It was kind of a bizarre experience and my fault. The prone i had a drive to whitewater draw north douglas arizona in agua prieta mexico. We were there to see the sandhill cranes we decided to take a socratous route on the way back through sierra vista and as i drove through sierra vista i didn't notice that the state route we on turned right i went straight right up to the gate of four. What chuka active. Us army base. I told the guy that gate that we were traveling to tucson passing through. He said we would need a permit to enter the base. I thought i clarified. In order to get the tucson. I needed to go through the base. And he said if you don't go through the base you're going to have to go all the way around and by all the way around. I assume he meant all the way around route. One ninety one. Like we'd come from whitewater draw. I said well. How do i get a permit. And he says you you can get that in this building. And he pointed to it so he drove around went to the building. We started filling out this extensive form. We had to go be processed one at the time so i went up to the counter. I told him you're trying to get to tucson. Needed a permit to get onto the base. He asked why so we were just passing through and it says we don't just pass through military bases. You're going to the west gate. Any changed my form to say. We're going to the west gate but he did an entire background check on me. Took my picture gave me an id and as part of that asks will be coming back and kid all the trouble to actually get a permit to pass through the base in order to get the tucson. That's make this permit as long as possible. We both got our permits. We drove into the base started driving around and trying to find the west gate to get out until we get the tucson. We couldn't find it. We kept driving in circles and again we finally pulled up our map on our phones and on the gps and it kept directing us out of the base through the gate that we came in. Like you said. I missed the turn. We didn't even need to be on the base in this situation. Everybody was just doing their job. I was trying to get home. The guy at the gate was trying to process people. The guy in the building was giving out permits lane in their silo. Everybody hearing but not listening. And not recognizing the interconnectedness that led to an unwanted outcome. I didn't need a permit to get onto the base. I was just trying to get home. And there was a miscommunication. The financial markets are similar participants act in their own self interest. They stay in their lane and often don't realize how financial markets are connected actions by some investors impact actions by others when participants act in a similar way that causes systemic risk. That can lead to financial meltdowns
What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

You're talking about. I'm guessing is like the seventies which by all forty years ago. Yeah these alligators Bring up in freetown for. I mean just to let you know that like you know read me. Just sierra leone What is called the dhs. It's like the housing survey basically every five years. There's a demographic and health survey that's done and the most recent one for sierra leone just came out it was compiled in twenty nineteen and the d h s is done by statistics sierra leone and funded by lots of our partners and you will not be surprised but today in sierra leone about sixty one percent of women between the ages of fifteen and forty nine have experienced spousal violence In fact it's gone up by ten percents From twenty thirteen in twenty hundred thirteen. When did the survey was fifty one percent ten years later more women in sierra leone actually report that they've been victims of spousal violence and You know sometimes. We think that. I mean as we discuss these issues we talk about you know human rights in sierra leone and you know the place of women the place of man. Women's rights the rights of children. Because we talk about this a lot. I think sometimes this like in our minds. We think because we're talking about it. That things are changing for the better that the that the conversation in itself as this like intrinsic value which is a sign of change right. And it's just you know. When i saw the the i was just really really heartbroken. Actually that even though we are talking about two to lots Even though there are programs even though you know the police now has like a special family support unit across every playstation. Now there's a family unit that's supposed to deal with issues of domestic violence and domestic abuse. Of course it's very very underfunded in general but just that you know you see the posters on the streets so you think that things are changing But that something you experienced growing up almost like three. Four decades ago is still very much a big problem in sierra. We wanna protect girls who wanna protect women. We wanna hands off our girls. You wanna do all these things when we talk about them but in our households. I don't think that the conversations are happening. I think a key part of the reasons why the conversations are not being the family household is again because of how men see themselves in our society in our communities in our families and so i'm really keen on talking to men like you Because i think that meant only men can talk to. You know because if we see the reality. Monday cedeno if not for Be wandering it's like this idea that the men are adults. The women are not right. If you really want to have these conversations about changing. We want to transform our society than not only miracle. Monday and say not to from. Because i may not be keep like come up before we move. Will you know what i mean. It's very important for men to speak up and for men to take a stand because you can talk to other men because other men see you as equal in a way that they don't see someone like you're i mean because Yeah go ahead.

S. by the way Mike you've caused me to look at the ninety seven Marlins a Kerry Sheffield twenty one homers that year Moise salute twenty three bombs under and fifteen ribs about that our guy Edgar Renteria had the most hits on the team and the most steals he was a player hundred seventy one it's a thirty two steals and you even have a whole Bobby pin me over third base I forgot about that she had to leave on in the rotation and yet Kevin brown he was nasty back then Kevin brown Alex Hernandez now lighter so yeah and they're the ones who took down the Indians in seven the Indians still looking for that that title like I know I mean that's another franchise you could do you could do the Indians and it's got some unbelievable stories and some unbelievable heartbreak I think you know I I it's you have to have up and down motion if you're gonna be able to have a a documentary about your team about your players about your city and certainly they they qualified I mean it's amazing what's what hasn't happened there and when you consider all the good teams that they've had good to us I watch that one yeah for sure all right to the news of the day the M. L. B. memo that was released by the athletic over the weekend so here's my take I'm going to take a deep breath Mike and see a listed as prohibited or discouraged spitting sunflower seeds tobacco licking your fingers fighting hitting inside meeting inside bat boys high fives fist bumps fraternizing showers saunas hydrotherapy Hoover's subways and leaving the hotel it took a lot of oxygen there I guess I I can happily down a distorted smiling going to be spending actually I don't are you gonna do that right you know the exact readjusting your Cup you throw it you know I mean one well I I'm totally with you it's like how do you I mean sometimes you gotta spit you know I'm in yes I mean sometimes you just have to do it but I you know look and I mean either the writing the rules what was a big concern the players that you know they take it seriously but about our health in in in in you've got to be serious about the the protocol for all that well I mean they are I mean because they kind of went overboard on it but I do believe that there are a lot of people watching a baseball perhaps more than any other sports so I mean you have to be politically correct and how you you protect yourself and your teammates and and those around you I hate I just want to see how it's all going to work look I watch the golf yesterday right with with with Rory McElroy and and in the DJ and and Rickie Fowler and and I lasted about tools this was a different rhythm Hannah and I will I know wasn't used to it it just cuts through me off you know there is one group that you know and after they played the whole there was that you know personal break that was you know five minutes as they walk to the next hole there was no other group on the on the course to or they can go back and forth and and show you different shots and whatnot in the they were carry their own bags in there just was a different rhythm about I didn't like it and I hope that all these things that they're suggesting when baseball comes back does not put a rhythm that's going to be difficult to to play ball with or or watch I mean I I'm concerned about it well for sure be different this is your ball will be thrown away after it's touched by multiple players throwing the ball around right now anyway so that's not that big a deal yeah I think boys I mean that's weird I mean you get balls on the empire and it get the batch I mean that's what but you have a player do that but coach I mean how they can do that I mean Mike how you can have the movie the natural without the bad boy little Bobby comes out with wonder boy right wow yeah I will be available due to no nobody to have a ball dude come out no ball dude no game actually by the way the game well it would yeah actually got a chance to for quick digression on bad boys what a story you guys that you know it majorly dug out could be pretty raunchy places right have you guys ever had to kind of watch yourselves around that boys are these kids get there are they mostly like eighteen nineteen twenty year old kids did you ever have your kids be it a bad boy or bad girl oh yeah oh yeah and yeah I mean you know the deal me here where in the clubhouse if the if you've got a D. two year old kid there I mean you probably learned stuff from him if you've got it a nineteen year old kid there is doing you you tied it up I mean it's just it's it's pretty much common sense although image has always worked that way actually game everything every once awhile can overload somebody's choice of words and but for the most part you're aware you know if you've got a ten year old little girl there I mean come on it never was a problem in eighteen that was on do you have any you used to be a bad boy I believe in the year visitors team dugout was the great Mario alley Otoe who's now you know big high ranking exec with the giants the guarantee stripes of candle stick as a visiting bat boy well he he he did I mean where else but he was also the visiting clubby when I first came into among the first few years I came in the same Cisco Mario alley Odo was he was visiting clubby and he was the best globally and a big part of that was because he had the best food Billy and his mom who was an amazing cook she would cook and he would bring in turkeys and hams and oh my god it is to include that he would bring in it was it was better than any restaurant in the city it was just unbelievable and what he left being a club you went up in the front office they broke your body start but you know it's amazing how quickly somebody becomes part of your life when you go into a city and a guy who's in charge of good clubby he can make that city wonderful about Kobe oh my god Pittsburgh data gathered by the name of mulch and mooch was tired and for whatever reason he could tried about twenty years ago so the spread through mooch he would have saltine crackers peanut Butters and peanuts go get a good deal yeah we're getting close up at like ten o'clock right so the game's over and the only put the only option you have for food Pittsburgh was to go to the permit you brothers which back then was a restaurant that opened up at eleven thirty at night and it it was right there out there where the train dogs were in all the truckers are going in and they would you know do most of their their your business out there in in at night so the restaurant opened at eleven thirty in the deal with the sandwich and I don't get my way up in a tangible to stay out of things you remember about cities the deal is bad as permit permit you brother Sam which was for two pieces of French bread it was a celebration day and then they had coleslaw on it then they put the French fries on it yeah enemy covered up and that your sandwich in the deal was the truckers want to be able to eat with one hand so they don't have a plate basically a Salisbury steak plate with you know French rice into the right mate they want to set the key with one hand well today the committee brothers good bomb there and in Pittsburgh I mean it's it's it's it's well known yeah dad made that that's how we survive mooch saltine crackers peanut butter and peanuts have at it boys yourself out right because some of those guys make some pretty good scratch don't they you could you got isn't part of the ritual is to write your checks before you leave town you guys all tip the club is right yeah always and I mean there for a while it was it was unbelievable how much guys would I see a guy like like buster Posey for a three day series by their bikes insured by commanders like boat you thousand dollars then and it just kind of goes on up from there and but they've kind of you know organizations have kind of changed all that they can rewrote the rules are basically so they're saying well no longer you a paid employee here you know you're kind of an independent contractor you have to pay us to get in the clubhouse and then then then they're still make pretty good pretty good on it although the meal money with this last basic agreement a win for modern six dollars a day down to thirty Bucks so things have changed a little bit wow I didn't know that you guys

"I made all these claims about how teen movies are written by and as now a thirty three year old. I'm same age as Batman I've realized that I can no longer be sure. If it's not what the way I was like, she knows what Frodo as Lychner dumb, his main culture. But then I was like, no, okay. How old is she like two two kids that are in high school right now are those movies like old movies that no one will be caught dead watching? I don't actually know. So we'll be talking about talk about the marvel universe spider, man. Like, hey, have you seen that old movie? Aliens. Yeah. He does that all the time he references movies. And he's always like this old movie. I'm like you've clearly seen all of them. Stop lying like he's just trolling Tony. He's just like, you know, what will make tone of you'll really uncomfortable. If I insinuated this movie came out when he was my age is old. I think okay. So just. But on the note of the Frodo thing, and I didn't I was kind of at that point. Like, I was listening. I was watching. I did give it a real honest watch. But at the same time, I was kind of like it's not gripping me yet. Some kind of like, my my my my my. My words are not coming out today. My mind kind of wondered and so in that conversation. It was just like, okay. I remember hearing your called Frodo. And then like, I don't know if it was like going the bells Frodo or if it was like get outta here. Frodo because if it was just throwing up Frodo, then Sierras just adding more insults to herself. It was like, okay. So that's another person you can be. Like, I mean, maybe she did mean Frodo, maybe she's calling her hairy footed tiny person in like, I don't I don't know. Like that is going to go to mount doom like, I don't know. Yeah. Where where was the trying to logic in this? But yeah, yeah. I don't know. I know she told her to get a wig like get out of the MIR Frodo before you break it and so- Sierras responses like, oh, you mean Quasimodo who is like so horrendously ugly that like he would shatter mirrors which I don't remember from reading Hunchback of Notre NAMA that was a long time ago. I this is like are you smarter than a high school or like, no, she's read it recently? And I haven't, but I think that was sort of like what the play was which like if she was just call your frozen like that makes sense to me to like generally most people if they called you a hobbit would mean, it is an insult like there's a small percentage of people who would mean it as a compliment. But. That's a very specific group. So I was like I was just ready to go with it was like at least it's a modern reference. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, I agree. So I'm curious about like, all right? So let's get into some of the transport via. It was not as bad as it could have been in my opinion. But at the same time, it was very present. And constant, and that's kinda how I felt it was I wrote down every time that I noticed something. I'm going to pick up my notes, basically so immediately immediately five minutes in trans people are a joke. Like, they they made some sort of forget what it was. But one of the popular girls friends says something like, oh, were you going write about a poem about how you're the you're you're trans? That's so progressive of you. And this is sort of. I think one of the things that I was thinking about when I was talking about this idea of like the people who are writing it are older 'cause that that sounds like something somebody would have said like in what I was in high school. You know that like it was still, you know, recalling people gay, and you were calling you know, sort of. No, I don't think anybody I knew was really aware of what trans being transgender..

"Like. Top forty? Yeah, crap. SpongeBob the musical. Oh, well, we know we might is we didn't hit the musical. I was scene to all Ryan Sierras. Pop pop pop. I think you can so now you're sure I have researched this. I know these are all right, then I need to find out. Well, the other thing is the other annoyances you cannot. I know this to be true because I really looked into this one. I wanted each of my kids to have their own daily briefing in the morning. Yeah, so that when you wake up, you say, Alexa play my morning brief, but you can only have one briefing on your account. So like I wanna listen to NPR news, but I want my kids to be able to wake up and listen to a different thing. So I don't know, it's it's irritating. What about why is it? If I have five, Alexis in my house and I'm in the kitchen, and I'm one foot away from Alexa. And I say a light play ball, blah. The one in the living room start signing, but the one front doesn't. Yeah. Now that may. Crazy. I don't know. I'm irritated. Oh, and then another thing, the kids, Alexa. Yeah, which I ordered for Carris that one requires shin with their family time, whatever thing even use it, and then more expensive. Basically a kids. It's an Alexa with a rubber case that requires a subscription. So stay away from the kids. Alexa that ridiculous. I know what about you though? Have you? I mean, I'm guessing because you've gone so green, but you didn't start there. There's probably a whole slew of products that you if you go like five years and beyond on my blog. Well, let me for crying out loud. I was the Pantene girl. You were twelve. I would that's commercials. I was the Pantene girl flip in my hair about. But to me, it's like, yeah, I'll always say, hey, that was, I mean, I just like life. You do things and you decide, oh, I don't really like that as much, or I mean, when I was the Pantene girl, I had no idea what green beauty even was. I never even heard of nontoxic beauty wasn't until like the past three or four years that I'd like to debate. Yeah, go into my archives. It's just all, like all my makeup was super toxic and that it wasn't until I decided change my mind. But I think that that's human and I expect that most people that have that are online influencers, you know you like something and then you change your mind or something happens and you don't like it anymore. You know, as all though, I also think we have to differentiate between a paid endorsement drove a Dacian. Right? Because hopefully people get that. You know, those are two different things are two different things you were paid and that was your job. Right? And that was, I mean entrusting that's. Harming that was that was a very lucrative deal. Yeah. Yeah. Was commercial that kind of miss that kind of a little bit. But yeah, I just think that nowadays, I think most bloggers that have seen the have the most integrity really aren't even going to go for the paid endorsements of things. They really don't like because it's just first of all, no, super obvious. I mean, I remember a certain chain, fast food restaurant that I know you were involved or you were asked as well, and it would have paid, you know, younger of college for my kids totally. But I was like, this just does not fit. So I this morning, this very morning opened an Email front company wanting me to promote something that is sold exclusively at WalMart. Yeah, and it wasn't promoting WalMart, but it was sold exclusively at WalMart, and it was really good money, and I sat there with it. Open in my inbox for ten minutes going. I could really use this money. Yeah, and I just was ultimately like I can't do it..

"They will be conserved by the passage of this Bill, and there will be a great deal more use of the beauty of the park than there is now when asked whether he was familiar with Moore and his objections, Pinto replied, yes, sir. I know him very well. He is an old and very good friend of mine. I've never been. Able to agree with him and his attitude toward the Sierras. In this case, I think he has unduly giving away to beauty as against use the debate kept the issue in front of the American public up until the last minute. I still think we can win. John Muir wrote in November adding. I'll be relieved when it settled for it's killing me. MIR himself was too ill to attend the hearings on Semper second nineteen. Thirteen. Congress passed the raker act forty three to twenty five president. Wilson signed the Bill two weeks later. The elderly Muir was devastated. He wrote to his friends, the Kellogg's, it's hard to bear. It goes to my very heart, but in spite of Satan and company, some sort of compensation must surely come out of even this dark. Damn, damn damnation. Having lost his final battle. MIR never truly recovered the year after the hetch hetchy Bill passed. MIR came down with pneumonia with his daughter at his bedside. He died on Christmas Eve, nineteen. Fourteen MIR would leave a legacy as a free thinker and activist and patron Saint of the American wilderness and for some as misguided zealot for him. The fight preserve hetch hetchy was about much more than the future of one splendid valley. As he told the Sierra Club in an address years earlier, the battle for conservation will go on endlessly. It is part of the universal battle between right and wrong. Five years after Muir's death in nineteen nineteen engineers began working to flood the hetch hetchy valley. The dam would eventually be named after its lead engineer. Michael Shaughnessy construction would take another four years, but once completed the.

"Online was renamed as sierra entertainment now sierra continued to be used largely as a brand name for a publisher for the next several years so between two thousand two and two thousand eight zero published games but it was almost like the name of atari where the name sierra had very little connective tissue to the company that had existed in the 80s and ninety is it was almost more like just a brand name that could be slapped on to any game that was being developed under vivendi for whatever purposes it might have been a budgeting thing saying this division needs to publish this game and two thousand eight vivendi games merged with activation to create activation blizzard and sierra was transferred over to act vision as a result of this merger and the brand would remain dormant it kind of disappeared it still technically existed there was a point where it sounded like exhibition was looking to sell off sierra and for a while just seemed like sierra was just going to be a thing of the past that it was no longer going to be a relevant term and then in two thousand fourteen seemingly out of nowhere the sierra website was updated and said that there would soon be some interesting news about sierra including new games coming out and if you go to that web page now you'll see you can download the original kings quest if you like and there's also promise of things to come so the sierra story is not necessarily over we may see a renaissance of sierra online sierra entertainment so we'll keep our eyes out for that but for now the story is at an end it was a dramatic rise in popularity and we could probably do full episodes about some of these games and their impact on the gaming industry and how they developed over time.
