The Port Chicago Disaster

"One is quite sure exactly what happened but at ten eighteen pm there was a loud crash. The seminars reported as sounding like metal and timber falling down. This probably a crane or one of the booms which had collapsed then. There was the sound of an explosion and then a fire about five. To seven seconds later there was a massive explosion that destroyed the entire facility. It was one of the largest explosions in history up until that point pilots in the air at the time saw a fireball three miles into the air. The blast was felt in boulder city nevada. Four hundred thirty miles away. There was damaged onto buildings in san francisco forty eight miles away debris landed over two miles away and the plane which witnessed it said it's all white hot debris shooting past it. At an altitude of seven thousand feet. It coastguard fireboat near the pier was thrown six hundred feet or one hundred and eighty meters away where it eventually landed in the water and sank. There were three hundred and twenty men and the peer when the explosion occurred all of them died instantly. Two thirds of the dead. Were african american enlisted men who were working on the dock. In fact this explosion by itself was responsible for fifteen percent of all of the african american deaths in the second world war. I've got a previous episode on the halifax harbour explosion during world war one. The portugual explosion wasn't quite as large. But it wasn't too far away the biggest difference and the reason why the fatalities were lower. Portugal is that there were no civilians on the base. There were two hundred and fifty other injuries and of the men who were killed only fifty one wherever identified an inquiry was launched only four days after the explosion and the ruling was that it was probably the fault of one of the enlisted men. Nothing was mentioned about the poor safety conditions and the lack of training

Artist and glaciologist illustrate ice loss from glacier in Peru

"As the climate warms glaciers are melting fast over a thirty year period peruse Calcutta ice cap lost about a third of its area. To put that in perspective artists Meredith, like of Chicago worked with glaciologist Andrew Malone, he provided satellite images and data. She then Used Three D. Animation and gaming software to create a virtual world with the city of Chicago looks like it's built on top of the Calcutta Glacier. This provides viewers with a sense of scale. So they can visualize just how massive the glacier is and how much of it has been lost, and so it sort of displaces the viewer from the world that they know but keeps it enough of a familiar context so that somebody who lives in Chicago can look and say, Oh, yeah I know what that distances. into show, how much isis disappeared into able to calculate the volume of ice that has been lost and then convert that into if that much ice were to fall as snow in Chicago that it would return allegation I think of six hundred feet. In their virtual world falling snow buries the city until only tops of skyscrapers are visible. Seeing an image can really illicit an emotional reaction and I think that that's where change can come from.

True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest

The Ancient Ones

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries I'm your host kit chrome. Today we're GONNA take a look at a mystery at mystery at least as deep as Amelia earhart. What happened to the honesty Indians? The honest are originally from Siberia during the Ice Age what became native Americans crossed over a land bridge it appeared because of the low sea level. The Ana Sasi tribe eventually settled in what is now era sonal well, maybe not how they were a native American culture flourishing in southern Colorado and Utah and northern New Mexico and. From about one hundred ad whose descendants are considered to include the present day puddle people I dug a little deeper and discovered that the name on a Sasi means ancient wants doesn't make sense. The Apache were given that name Apache by their enemy if it's true that the. Came over from Siberia or existed in what is now American southwest around one hundred ad as some speculate than it is doubtful that they would have called themselves the ancient ones but what's in a name and what happened to them? This was not some small tribe in the eighteen eighties when many of their dwellings were found on the face of Mason, they were dubbed cliff-dwellers. Many of the dwellings were over six hundred feet up and built into sheer cliff faces. Some were a dozen stories high and consisted of over eight hundred rooms. There were grain rooms rooms for dining rooms for sleeping today's and estimated that the on Sasi numbered about thirty thousand, one theory dates, their disappearance between six hundred and thirteen hundred ad again, what happened to them perhaps like the Mayans they migrated were simulated the Zuni, the Hopi Indians? Oh, today believed that theory one Hopi elder explained about a thousand years ago. The elderly reportedly said, the Pueblo was visited by savage strangers from the north. The villagers treated the interlopers kindly but soon, the newcomers devastate their farms and that is why they began to build their homes high up in the cliffs. Okay. That explains why they lived in cliff dwellings still what happened to them? Where did they go contemporary scientists think that life was pretty good for the ancient ones why then did they end up abandoning their magnificent agriculture and permanent homes to migrate hundreds of miles and seemingly lose their cultural identities and Hopi Land Suny. And the Pueblos the upper real `grande, oral histories of the Hopi Zuni Pueblo people as well as scientific findings suggest that the exodus from places like Jaakko and Mesa Verde may have been. Family by family or clan by clan and may have occurred over a hundred years. Scientists suggest that things like poor sanitation should pass. An environmental degradation may have caused on Sasi to move think for a minute of a cliff face village six, hundred feet off of valley floor with eight hundred rooms where the residents for maybe five hundred people where did the sanitation factor play out? It would have been an awful long descent to use a local capital unlike the hokum people to the south on a saas he did not build huge irradiation canals on a Sasi diversion and collection of national precipitation was not irrigation in the usual sense in general their dry land farming. On the natural blessings of rain and runoff melting snow often they helped mother nature by building check dams, terracing hillsides. So locating fields near the mouth of royals springs one of the largest of their water conservation efforts was a five hundred thousand gallon reservoir at Mesa Verde after poring over dozens of documents and stacks of books I realized that no one has come up with an answer of what happened to the thirty thousand plus on a saucy unlike a lot of ancient civilizations left scrolls and etchings on the walls on saucy left nothing. So where did they information? We have on these cliff waller's come from to Colorado. Cowboys are said to discover the magnificent cliff towel structure at Mesa Verde. On a bitterly cold day in December eighteen, eighty eight, the male members of the ranching family soon became amateur archaeologists, digging gathering selling pottery weapons, tools, and other artifacts mostly to museums even without formal training, they were able to identify major distinctions in the pottery they found and conclude that different sites were occupied during different time periods in the late twentieth century the melting of more sophisticated scientific techniques and contemporary native American Indian knowledge has dramatically increased. Our understanding these people for some time many scientists have gone about their business privately evaluating physical evidence and police seen theories about the long gone a Sasi scientific speculation about the mysterious disappearance of the builders of the cliff dwellings continued to the current era.

Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?

Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?

"Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak.

Helicopter In Kobe Bryant Crash Being Investigated

"The noise the other big story that's been developing all week was the investigation to the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant his daughter and seven other people the investigation has been focusing a lot on the fog and weather but it's also going to look into the helicopter itself and the pilot who received clearance to fly in poor weather conditions there is also been conversation about terrain awareness warning system that possibly could have prevented the rack but in this case that warning system was not present on the helicopter that Kobe was flying on the NTSB has been arguing for a decade and a half that system to prevent crashes should be mandatory helicopters that accommodate six or more passengers such as a Sikorsky S. seventy six helicopter that he was flying in but these efforts have been turned aside from the FAA the NTSB will be releasing a preliminary report on the accident soon but for more on what we know so far we spoke to Chris and Carla he's a news correspondent for I heart media in Los Angeles to tell us a little bit more about what we know about the investigation so far the NTSB right now he's drawing out all of the physical what they call perishable evidence so anything bad maybe call it did hear a dog in the open or that needs to be collected in order to piece together the puzzle a little bit later there could be looking at many different aspects of this crash though that people given the books of the company they'll get into the background of the pilot we'll get it there what the air traffic look like around southern California during that time and of course they'll get into the weather what were the conditions like they'll look at the engine of the aircraft to see if there was any malfunction or error there and then they'll also looking to be a mechanic that the aircraft industry that are everything was in good working order so all of that ball together is going to be the broader NTSB investigation what we heard today was a more ironed out time line of this flight that they took off John Wayne airport down in Santa Ana which is about seventy miles from Cameri out and it started its white worked its way up to Burbank and it without Burbank that the pilot requested to go from visual flight rules to special VFR special visual flight rules eat put in that request and the reason if you wanted a transit some air space there all along those with special rules which basically says that you can fly when the feeling of the feeling of below one thousand P. which is kind of a basic minimum and also with less than three miles of visibility so they ended up circling right around the the airport there Burbank about twelve minutes hold that request was approved and it was at that point that they started to work their way back down the one eighteen freeway and using the freeway they follow the one eighteen to the one on one end and work their way down toward camera as they are packed Burbank the band I fear space they then requested fly straight through the Cameri which was where they were going to land the the pilot requested what's called flight following and basically that just means there's a constant contact if you will between air traffic control and the pilot the air traffic control that that the pilot was flying too low for flight following that's not necessarily a warning as much as the it's just a statement of who we are we can help you out based on where you are can't get a new whatever it is that they need in order to maintain that following the pilot been requested two wives add to avoid a cloud layer and ask the air traffic control for clearance I was the last contact between the pilot and an air traffic control so of radar indicated that the aircraft rose to about twenty three hundred feet and then there was the old black descending turned and then that was the last radar contact what we know on the ground is that when it hit it was at just about one thousand eighty five feet above sea level and the the pre field is about five to six hundred feet they've got a pretty it didn't scatter you know if you if you think about your crap accidents and crashes often those debris fields will last for maybe a half mile or a mile or even further so they can join idea of just how hard the aircraft was able to it hit the surface there yeah and it's still it does really seem like the weather I've probably played the most important factor obvious we don't know yet if there was any type of mechanical failure or whatnot but just all those requests or and and he was granted the pilot was granted to fly in these poor weather conditions it just really seems that all of that is adding up to what was the culprit and as you said in the end when he climbed up and then drop back down so rapidly that was where everybody unfortunately perished and and you know investigators and and corners were out there trying to gather remains and even the terrain there is a little difficult they all had to to hike in and and be flown in as well yeah so the NTSB is actually asking for pictures for people who are around Calabasas and had taken pictures of the weather conditions or had taken pictures somewhere near the crash site they can get an idea of what the weather conditions were like they were also pretty quickly after making that request did they were pretty quick if they live and it's not that we're just focusing on the weather here there are all of these other factors we have to look into but this is just one important piece of the puzzle certainly there are and there is a lot of reporting out there about how difficult it is the flying conditions like this how big back while there was it specifically above Cameri all our Q. three above but how about this and how easy perhaps we could have been for the pilot to become disoriented while the either asking for that for that increase in altitude or while out what movie across what had been activated is that the aircraft hit the help that is a pretty high rate of speed around a hundred sixty miles an hour so yeah they they they told you that the pilot was at least moving with a certain degree of purpose yeah and every time there's a crash a plane crash or something like that people always ask is there a black box and that's not the case with this one right there's nothing there was no black box on this helicopter no they're not required to be black box on aircraft like that and yet in court to talk about the aircraft as well as the course you that if the twin engine aircraft built yeah that that's important when you're trying to narrow down the possibilities of what could happen because yeah we have two engine I mean one failed you least have enough power to to work your way back down to the ground in an emergency landing in in this case we didn't hear any sort of emergency call there was no mayday that we know of infer that tells you that whatever happened happened quickly and was catastrophic enough that the pilot couldn't even get anything out on the radio which in most cases is instantaneous it's always important to remember the victims and all of this obviously everybody knows Kobe Bryant and and you know the world the sports world a lot of people really feel for that but you know it also included in the victims were his thirteen year old daughter Johnnie who goes by Gigi us some of her friends that I play basketball with her their parents and coaches I mean that they were on their way to one of Kobe's sports at tournaments are one of the or their basketball tournaments where his daughter was going to play and you know these were all just people United by the sport of basketball obviously a lot has been made about his daughter and her aspirations with basketball and they've seat been seen together at Laker games but these are the victims really a very close knit group of of people who who played basketball together and he coached the team things like that yeah you know it's important to think about this in the in the context of what they were doing and where they were going so that the mamba cop was this big back all tournament and I thought that the mamba sports academy which was something started in created by Kobe Bryant not just for use force but also yeah I'll be here great stories about NBA players who trained up there with Kobe or with other players it's just a really nice facility or not only basketball but also other sports like volleyball up there and so you you're you've got these people that are geared to go go back up there again there down in Newport beach seventy air miles from from thousand oaks and if anybody knows anything about southern California Subir mild bout five hours of driving when you really consider traffic even on a Sunday so that they give you an idea of why graph they were flying up there and they're flying up there with the number of people who were from the neighborhood and yeah I guess not really hidden within the strategy but certainly a piece of the strategy tragedy if you have a couple of families that are just but I mean they're incredibly impacted the other fellow for all the belly family had three family members the the father the wife and one of their daughters on that flight so you've got I think there are two other kids who now are having to deal with basically losing more than half of their family Chris and Carla news correspondent for I heart media based in Los Angeles thank you for joining us yeah of course

"New information in the Kobe Bryant crash investigation yesterday the NTSB said his helicopter nearly cleared the hill that it hit by twenty or thirty feet experts we spoke to say the helicopter was going so fast in a downward trajectory it essentially entered a point of no escape in this case the helicopter was in such an extreme position just six hundred feet above the ground diving at the ground four thousand feet per minute that that terrain warning system probably would not have been any help the pilot just didn't have a chance to recover a diving deeper the menu pilots are air one gives us an interesting perspective on the helicopter crash pilot Robert Altman tells me he's flown in the fog before the number one hazard to hold up he says they keep their one grounded pretty regularly for low clouds and fog it really is it's oriented in a in a situation like that from what he seen about the Bryant helicopter crash all this is it seems the pilot was put on a long air hold then they changed as routing a few times what will you probably happen to me is that you just flew into six but you know you the it happens he says it looks like a fairly common accident with some fairly uncommon passengers gene Wexler news ninety six point five W.

"What happened to on Sasi? Well most to the mysteries on this podcast have some kind of resolution but what happened to the Ana Sasi is something that is keeping modern uttered are Kiala and scientific technology at bay. Well some say the honest saucier originally from Siberia during the Ice Age. What became the native? Eight of Americans crossed over. A Land Bridge had appeared because of the low sea level. The sausage tribe eventually settled into what is now Arizona. Well maybe not how holdout they were a native American culture flourishing in southern Colorado and Utah Northern New Mexico and Arizona from about a d one hundred whose descendants ascendants are considered to include the present day Pueblo People Duggal little deeper and discovered that the name on a Sasi means ancient wants. Gosh well that doesn't make sense. The Apache were given that name by their enemies. If it's true that the Masasi came from the Siberia period area or existed in what is now American southwest around one hundred. Ad Assam speculate then. It is doubtful that they would have called old themselves. Yangchen once. But what's it a name still what happened to them. This was not some small tribe in the eighteen eighties. When many of swellings were found on the face of maces they were dubbed cliff-dwellers? Many of the dwellings were over six hundred feet up and built into the sheer cliff taste. Some word doesn't stories high and consisted over eight hundred rooms there a grain rooms rooms for dining room for sleeping gene today. Estimated that on Sasi numbered around thirty thousand one theory date their disappearance as having occurred between six hundred and thirteen hundred. Ad Again what happened to them. Perhaps like the Mayans they migrated and were simulated this journey and Hopi Indian so today believe that theory one Hopi elder explained about a thousand years ago. The elder reportedly said the Pueblo was visited by savage strangers From the north the villagers treated the interlopers kindly but soon the newcomers began to forage and forge on them and among them and at last there was a massacre. This devastated the farms. Then that is why they began to build their homes high up in cliffs. Okay that might explain why they lived in the the cliff dwellings. Still what happened to them. Where did they go? Contemporary Scientists. Think that life was pretty good for the ancient ones. Why then did they ended up Bandini nearby -nificant architecture and permanent homes to migrate hundreds of miles? So seemingly loser cultural identities in Hopi Lands Zuni Pueblos of the Upper Rio Grande Day oral histories of the Hopi Zuni Pueblo. People as well as scientific findings suggest that the actionist from places places like trump and Mesa verte may have been family by family or clan by clan and may have occurred over one hundred years. Scientists suggest that things like poor sanitation pests and environmental degradation may have caused Jonah. Sasi to move. Think for a minute of a cliff face. The village six hundred feet off the valley floor with eight hundred rooms that were the residents for maybe five hundred people were to the sanitation factor. Play way out. It would have been an awful long descent to use the local cat hole. I don't like the Hokum people to the south. The honesty did not build huge irrigation. Asian canals a Saas version and collection of natural precipitation was not irrigation in the usual sense in general their their dry land farming relied on the natural blessings of rain and runoff from melting snow often. They helped mother nature by building check dams dams terracing hillsides or locating fields near the mouth of Arroyo's or springs one of the largest of their water conservation. Efforts was a a five hundred thousand gallon reservoir at Mesa Verde after poring over dozens of documents and stacks of books. I realized that no one has come up with the answer. Answer of what happened to the thirty thousand plus on a Sasi. Unlike a lot of ancient civilizations select scrolls etchings on walls Outta Sasi left nothing nothing. So where did the information we have on these cliff dwellers come from to Colorado cowboys or said to have discovered the magnificent cliff palace Allah structure at Mesa Verde on a bitterly cold day in December eighteen eighty eight. The male members of the ranching family soon became amateur. Sure archeologists digging gathering selling pottery weapons tools and other artifacts mostly to museums even without formal training. They were able to identify major distinctions in the lottery. They found and conclude. The different sides were occupied during different time periods in the late twentieth Nia century the molding more sophisticated scientific techniques and contemporary native American end in knowledge has dramatically increased our understanding of these people people for some time many scientists have gone about their business privately evaluating the physical evidence and posting theories about the Longgang Ghana Sasi scientific speculation about their mysterious disappearance of the so-called cliff-dwellers continued up to to the current era but all this speculation has angered the many descendants of the ancient ones who had forgotten neither their ancestors nor or the ancient towns and cities they build angered by what they saw as the White Man's presumption of knowing what happened.

Bahamians look for way off storm-ravaged island as death toll climbs

"Authorities in the bahamas say they are expecting even more horrible news in the wake of hurricane dorian medical staff telling c._n._n. As they treat the many wounded that they are dreading and bracing themselves to learn how many are dead the storm killed at least thirty people by last official count but given the overwhelming damage to the islands and the hundreds of people who remain missing behaving officials believed the real death toll is quote quote unimaginable new video. Today gives an example of hurricane durians forest. You're looking right now at a hummer. That's around six thousand pounds. The the powerful floodwaters picked up that vehicle and slammed it through the side of house during his currently off north carolina's outer banks as a category one hurricane still flooding towns and knocking out power but it is the bahamas reeling from total disaster the u._s. coastguard alone has rescued get more than two hundred people there. A helicopter crew described seeing the avocado islands in the bahamas for the first time. The town was just looks like a landfill saw. The houses were dismantled. It was trash everywhere in ever c._n._n.'s patrick ofman reports parts for us now from the bahamas where he tells us he was struck by the silence and the destruction and the stench of death areas of of grand bahama island means driving through still flooded streets demand streets that are no longer streets. This area in the east of the island highland has until now been inaccessible since the storm little to no help has arrived the force of the hurricane through cars through buildings the storm orbital out here the category five leveling whole towns many rode out the storm in their homes. Many did not survive pastor. Joey saunders was on the third floor of his home with his son. When the storm surge crashed in these saturday make out to the second floor of the house and been put ten minutes in aside to flow to the third floor you know in the modern that flow optima head and we felt like strong current trying to break loose everything he cracks and this was in the middle of the night one thirty in the morning and then the current was so strong then the roof sarah to lift a nest thing i remember i was underneath the water my son's getting i noticed he had to searched like i guess he just disappeared socially and i heard him screaming daddy daddy daddy. He was in the water at that point right. He's ready gone in minutes later. When i came on the water i tried my hand. I caught onto the trust and re roof carried mealy so we will lake but six hundred feet away away from each other's for two days and be caught up into the pine tree with thirty two feet high surf the water carried. You know pine tree in the middle of the night. Your son was a ways away from you. What was going through your mind. You must have been terrified. Yes i was hoping that he was alive and he thought i had also also wasn't tells you know the two days later that'd be so he was under the trailer idea not sold another government has warn warn people the death count could spike in places like iraq where everyone knows of dead or missing family and neighbors that news is no surprise even though this is one of the hardest hit areas help from the government is yet to arrive either. The government is on his way. He doesn't take a bit of time. Can you are the settlements but they do anything. Gradually you know. Do you wish they were moving quicker. I yes i wish it can move quicker. People desperately need food and water before time time runs out a lot of lost most of their clothes water food basics right now. It and we are in the town of hierarchy. This is where dorian category five came in installed. These people had category five winds for over for four hours. They say behind me what house just had the front of it knocked in and it was completely flooded. Believe it or not this used to be a neighborhood. There was house after house <music> after house. They were all gone. There were three people who were in this house. A mother her daughter and a granddaughter houses swept away into the ocean knows where they are. They are officially listed as missing but residents say they fear that most likely they were swept in the ocean and it will never be seen again throughout the day. We've seen helicopters coast guard helicopters hovering over spots in this area residents say that's how they know. Another body has been found and the grim work continues and at this point we're told by residents. They don't expect for anymore survivors to be jake patrick ottoman. Thanks so much for that story c. n. N.'s paula newton joins me now live from a different part of the islands <hes> she's at an airfield in nassau which is now being used as a staging area for aid and rescue rescue teams in paula. I mean frankly it could take years for the bahamas to recover from this. If ever the bahamas will be for for many decades likely transformed by this and the reason is that you were dealing with islands and keys that are isolated at times spanning over several hundred miles this says the deployment area unfortunately jake and not for lack of trying with the aid effort has been in fact spotty and chaotic you have that mix of both government and volunteer aid and given they they said how widespread the needed the need is it is difficult to really ascertain if people are getting everything that they need and when we first start with the basics the food in the water then there's people who need to be evacuated and then as patrick just told you in very grim detail there is search and recovery and that search and recovery mission is also very important gordon because it keeps away disease that call listen. We're here in nassau. This is also where they're bringing evacuees. I spoke to elizabeth nixon. I mean her story about. Even getting outta here was crazy. They put the kids or nieces and nephews in coolers to get them out but after that they had to split up at the airport in marsh harbour what happens some of them came here. Those children with some relatives tips are still at the airport tick. Listen to elizabeth nixon. Those babies can't stand minute avenue eaten last night. They said there was an airport and they they at the airport right now. Daily front that is so chaotic you know if those will catch trying to push through a lot you know the issue here is that she saying it's frantic that is not the way on day six that you wanna see all of this unfold and she's desperate because she knows that those children have not eaten. She knows they do not not have water. Jake <hes> listen the challenge ahead. It is quite significant all right paul. Thank you so much for that reporting <hes>. Let's go now to dr caroline burnett galloway. She's on the phone from the bahamas. Choose the medical chief of staff at princess margaret hospital which is the only hospital in nassau still able to treat critical all patients in the entire bahamas <hes> doctor. Thank you for joining us first of all. How are you doing. How are you holding up. How is your family. Thank you jake <hes>. My family is fine. <hes> and we're all rolling up with is a great team effort. It's it's tiring. It's exhausting <hes> <hes>. It's the most traumatizing hearing some of the stories of our patients that come in but we have to keep going. You're the only one taking critical patients right now. How in in nassau how strained or your resources we've come together and and deployed stop and me shepherd through that we're managing. <hes> initial wave of critical patients from arbuckle has they've come in. We've admitted taken them to the operating freaking there too if necessary i know the second wave of the walking wounded are coming in initially they came by koos guard helicopter and the airports so now open to regular plates are bringing more patients in but <hes> with with very strict and tight triage resorts in the patient offending them to a public health clinic or after come into this. Don't you told c._n._n. That you're treating the wounded right now but preparing for the dead you believe that the death toll is is much higher than thirty right correct. How much higher do you think it might be i. I can't estimate but it's going to be high. We are preparing some people coming to you. <hes> have been trapped in their homes in some cases on top of their homes for days on end. What kind of you've conditions are they. In by the time they get to you so dehydrated exhausted <hes> emotionally exhausted i <hes> <hes> somehow metabolic abnormalities from the long exposure and they had a chronic illness like diabetes hypertension.

"Listening to All Things Considered from NPR news holy city mayor Eric Garcetti has announced a plan that allows authorities to remove homeless people from encampments in high risk fire zones just last month about one hundred homeless people were displaced there's a fire ripped through the support of the basin and a twenty seventeen LA fire officials determined at the Skirball fire in the Sepulveda pass was caused by illegal cooking fire any can't in a brush area under the four oh five residents of Bel Air waking this morning to see this a massive ball of fire just feet away from the four oh five freeway city council voted in favor of the ordinance yesterday I see the move will improve preventative measures for keeping people safe during wildfires but critics say that it could leave room for abuses of power city council member Monica Rodriguez of the seventh district co author of the proposal and overseas the council's public safety committee and joins us now high hi how are you I'm well thank you thanks for joining us what are you hoping this proposal will change well it currently requires in the fire code that there are no trespassing signs posted every six hundred feet in order to enable our enforcement capacity and the reality is is that you know many times those signs are damaged or taken down and so this amendment to the fire code ordinance will enable us to have the ability to have law enforcement go in and provide personal notice of the areas that are already restricted from public access and requiring these individuals to actually depart from the various parts of the orders gives police freedom to remove homeless people from these high risk areas even when they're not currently being threatened by fires what's the guarantee this will cause more problems between homeless people and law enforcement well in in my district in particular we have been successful in actually reaching not only reaching some of these individuals that successfully placing them into permanent supportive housing that effort will continue that will not cease the practical concern that we have is that we are approaching hi fire season and these areas are pose greater risk and not just for the individuals in camp in these areas but also for the families in the adjacent hillsides in my district in twenty seventeen we were and not attributed to encampment fires but we did bear the burden of two of the largest wildfires in the city's history so the imminent threat that these potential risks providing some of these neighborhoods doesn't just affect the folks that are in camp in these areas it poses a very legitimate and real threat to individuals living adjacent areas in the sell side let's talk about the trespassing issue for second police officers can immediately remove people and charged him with trespassing so is it a good idea to have more people who are living in poverty caught up in the court system which can be pretty expensive right unfortunately because of the threat that they pose we will law enforcement will have the ability to go out let them know that they are trespassing should they refuse to leave then that's when they would engage in that in the next step of of being arrested for trespassing but the first foremost goal is we will continue to be doing our outreach efforts because first and foremost that is our priority is to help make sure that we're connecting these individuals with the resources that will get them out of these living conditions are let's talk about that for a second is welcome because clearing using campus could be displacing those people who do live there how does this proposal address that kind of relocation and access to those services so working with the mayors unified homeless response center we have actually already identified a protocol and in fact when we heard this item in committee yesterday and I suggested that we actually provide a homeless connect days so that they would have the shower services and all of these wraparound support services that we can connect them to very directly outside of that in canton area go Monica Rodriguez represents the seventh district she's a city council member thanks so much for coming on thank you so much.

"And he is very serious about protecting sportsmanship. Couple postseason run sewn to short sell this believe he might be the greatest postseason pitcher modern era probably, and so- Mak Muncie hit a home run off him and just so visually. You understand what happens here. Muncie is running very slow at first base Bill, you saw this. Right. He didn't even hit it into the bay. He hit into international waters. It went so far like it wasn't even close. This thing in close to six hundred feet, right? I mean he hit an annoying minute six hundred feet would be the longest run. It was it was, it was put it on the polls homerun I've ever bought it on the poll at lebatardshow is six hundred feet, the longest home run ever so Muncie hits this, but what's funny about it is he takes his we. Time. And Bumgarner chases him to first base and Muncie. Slows down and just says, come on a long if you wanna if you wanna run the basis, slowly with me, come on long brave because I would not want to be taunting madman. Yeah. He's, he's a bit of a lumberjack. I don't remember whether it was him or area who we accused of definitely calling his son boy, but one of them would would live in a log cabin. Maybe both of them live in a log cabin and call their son boy, but here's Madison Bumgarner, you know, an exchange with reporters after max Muncie, hit the ball, an alleged six hundred feet. Say the more I think about this. Kids play what everybody's saying, but. What did he do is just a long stare? The runner. Struck opposing walk further than I liked. That's fine. You wanna do that. Do it. But I'm gonna do what I wanna do. It's funny, you're laughing about a little bit are you softening at all towards that kind of. I mean, I think the game is changing a little bit in terms of what is this? It not for you. Wanna let everybody themself? Let me be myself. That's me. Yeah. Yeah. Just then. Walk. So news thing. I'm with Billy on this. I believe he is both. I don't know which one I choose to go ahead and put it on the poll, does Madison, Bumgarner sound more. Like he is selling diabetes medicine or pans for gold. Bumgarner did his thing and Muncie did his thing and Bumgarner stopped doing is thing. Well, the, the distance of the home run made it. So Bumgarner would have had to chase him around all the bases because he kept slow turning it because he was enjoying it. And then afterward he offered nothing in the way of apology here when he says of Bumgarner and I wish he had gotten this off Billy because when I think of max Muncie, I feel like today is sort of clenching his fists the way that you do. When you've got a joke that you realize you could've made on air on the drive home that you miss your you missed your window on. He comes close what he says, doesn't make any sense, but he comes close to having one hell of a line hit the ball. And then he yelled at me. He said, don't watch the ball, you run, and then just just on it back. You know, if you if you don't want me to watch the ball, you can get it out of your show. Now that doesn't make any sense. No, it's a great line though. But he could have said, if you don't want, let's see here, if you don't want to watch me run, then go get the ball out of the ocean. That's not even technically notion back there. Is it? I don't know cove the bay, isn't it?

Why are scientists suddenly preparing for an asteroid hitting Earth?

"Rod pile who is the off author of how many books ride, but it's pile book. Are you seriously wrote fifteen books? Wow, everybody. Yeah. Yeah. We all do, and obviously you have no life. But that's okay. The books are fascinating to say. The least all right now back we go to a topic that we've talked about many many times, and that is what is been considered by many people sort of science fiction. He kind of scenario the giant asteroid hitting earth. And what happens, and and the space folks are getting more serious about looking at this, aren't they? They are. And it's it's it's quickly. It's just a matter of time until it happens. Again, you don't have to pay more than drive a few hours east of their own ah to see what it looks like when a meteorite hits the earth or an asteroid hits here because it got meteor crater over there. So there's Nassar's the tracking along with the air force and various internationally sees as many of these nearer optics. They can which are the larger rocks or slinging neighborhood. That, you know, big cataclysmic happens every hundred billion years, or so I mean to, you know, make that sound casual it's a big deal. So they're running to drill last week along with FEMA and your space agency, a bunch of other agencies sort of practice, what their response would be one of these things were about to occur, and they created for this scenario for asteroid twenty nineteen PVC, which is estimated to be three hundred two thousand feet across. Unfortunately, when say did some of their tweets, they make it as clear as they might have that it was a fictional event. And the few people started flip out, and so what does a at asteroid well, three hundred thirty two thousand feet across. I mean, there's a big difference. Three times bigger. Let's say five hundred feet we'll sort of split the difference five six hundred feet. What does that do when it hits both in terms of the ocean and in terms of land? So if it was on land you get. A crater probably about a mile and across which is plenty big. That's a climate disruptor. You know, that's enough to really mess things up in terms of temperature and agriculture stuff 'cause you know, it doesn't take more than a couple of degrees. So you put that much dust and dirt and junk of the atmosphere. You got real problems of hits the ocean. Instead, you've got a bunch of water vapor, and potentially I suppose depending on the size and the of the media the depth of the ocean. You might have some some of the the solid mass of the ocean floor come up. So neither case you've got disrupted and potentially. So it's it's all bad. What can they do about? It. You have a meteor coming in and five hundred feet other than get the hell out of the way. If you know where it's gonna hit. What do you do with it? Well, the earlier you find them the early you can try and plan to intercept and this is a course of the course of the movies. You were talking about earlier about we go out there. And we knew could or kick it or redo it ever. We're gonna do probably not going to happen that way. But there is a mission called the blast redirect mission there dart at NASA sending up nearly twenty twenties which is just an impact or at the spacecraft. Swam into a very small asteroid gonna zurve to see how much that deflects trajectory that works in the future. Either. Use impact was like that. If you can catch them far enough out further away, they are smaller divert, you need to do to get them. Wait mirth or potentially even use something. The Russians are talking about doing experiment with a nuclear warhead because I got so many of them where they said it out and not blow up the asteroid. But but explode the warhead off to one side that would heat one side of the asteroid that offensive essentially propellant, Soma course for so two questions. I know we're limited in time. How big was the media? Ear that slammed into Zona meteoric crater. That one was something on the order of a hundred twenty feet across and larger ended effected the climate of the earth. I know that one was the biggest media craters only a few hundred feet across is not that big. So probably affected the regional area. Right. So the next question is if we're talking about a meteor couple of hundred few hundred feet across is not going to wipe us out. But it's going to disrupt a whole lot the climate at cetera. If you've got a meteor, several miles across is her son. Well, that's that's what you're talking about. With the the impact that took the dinosaurs down was sixty years ago that was on the order of of miles somewhere between seven miles maybe as many as fifty they just don't know. But if you've ever seen the aerial shot of that area, which has never been out to where I think it's kick skill stub. You know, it's a huge to impact crater. So. Yeah. That happens. We're big trouble because agriculture and livestock failed completely. All right. So when do we become the death star blowing up how big? How big a media is that we need for that that that would have to be something the size of small boon. So, you know, many hundreds or thousands of miles across that takes the planet out. But hopefully, you know, things happened to the Obama administration is they increase the funding for at least observing charting these. These large objects by ten factor ten times. So one of the big goals is to get some morbid observatories up it's more ground based observing that can track smaller objects and more accurately track larger ones than once. We know where they are predictor today trajectories better, we know how to go intercept them with where a lot of money for that. And since we've been talking about this over the years. Scientists have actually gotten much more serious about this. This is become real stuff hasn't it? It has. I think part of that was just looking at seeing how many of these things out they're beginning to see what trajectory that were taking and looking back to the delight of history and saying that looks like a crater. Hey that looks like a crater to more of it. You can really see these things easier and putting into together and realize something that's just an edible. And we're going to figure out how to cope

"Is in charge of all climbing rescues on this most popular side of the bone lawsuit argues that the first call went to nine one one, and then a sheriff's office employees it claims that employees wrongly told the caller to contact the ski patrol which he did. But then the ski patrol had to start the process all over again calling nine one one. And then the sheriff's office wasting precious time, according to the suit it took nearly two hours before the official. Call went out asking for a rescue helicopter, the chopper arrived four and a half hours after the fall. And despite the presence of an emergency room doctor on scene from the beginning Jenkins. The climber died as he was being loaded into the rescue helicopter. That's why the family is suing the sheriff's office and the county for ten million dollars. This is one of those things. I ended up I've done a fair bit of climbing enough actually covered a lot of these sort of stories about response time free. The fact that that I remember hearing about the fall of the fact that the person was still alive. After falling. Six hundred feet is shocking in itself. I'm a little bit surprised that the sheriffs that the that the person who answered the phone after it was transferred to to nine one one did not mean after the sheriff's department did not know who to call and suggested ski patrol in an area that is not a skiing area. Yes. I mean can't skied out. This is not a skiing climbing area. And it's really unfortunate that that person did not have the basic training to know what to do because that two hour delay before something was dispatched is nuts. However, you are doing an inherently dangerous activity, and you know, the way you are trained when you do. I've climbed right ear. I've climbed other mountains in the state what essentially the message the underpinning of every messages, you are on your own you you have to account for that. And you have to be responsible and tell people when you go up there's always that chance when you climb right near that. You're not gonna come back. Exactly. Right. I mean, this is terrible. Horrible thing. The family to lose someone even despite the fact that general is doing the thing that he obviously loved to do that sounds like a clustered up mess that they went through. So maybe I can see in this case, it was such a mess the lawsuit, but we live in an area where you have enough to hiking.

Supermassive, Stein And Stanford discussed on Linear Digressions

"Did you hear about the image of the black hole? Did I ever? Yeah. I guess that's kind of a silly question. Ask you 'cause you're into physics. It's also a silly question to ask if you heard about an image thing, it's more like did you see the image? But yeah. Yeah. That's that's a good point. So I guess like how how they do that just a really big telescope lens or something. Let's talk about it. All right. You're listening to linear Russians. So just for anyone who somehow missed this couple of weeks ago was all over the newspapers and stuff. There was a actual picture of a black hole that scientists took and you can see it, and that's really cool because while we've had a lot of indirect evidence of black holes, and they were theorized by Stein's general theory of relativity, they are by definition very hard to see for a number of reasons. And so the fact that we could take a picture of one is very exciting. I mean, it's kind of in the name, you can't really see a whole, and you generally can't say things that are black. Well, yeah. I mean, that's that's like part of it. Right. Is so threes in their called black holes is because the gravitational pull a strong that nothing not even light can escape. So, but that's that's a little bit. There's like the light that we see from black hole is not a self light. That's inside of the black hole light that's generated by the process of material spinning around it that generates light then we can detect so that's what we saw. But but the picture that you saw anyone anyone who saw it. It looks like kind of a kind of like like doughnut, that's like a little heavier on one side than on the other and the Donut hole of the black spot in the middle is the actual anyway. So so it's impossible to actually image of black hole directly, but you can image the stuff around the black hole. That's interacting with the black hog gravitationally. Yeah. That's right. And you can see the you can see the gap where you can't see anything because the black hole is there. And so that's like the closely. You can get to seeing it. Right. So that's what we say. So this wasn't done with like a gigantic pair of Benach yours or a gigantic. I like optical telescope, right? Well, a gigantic pair of knockers actually year a little bit closer with anything. So a couple of things number one is that the picture was actually taken in radio frequency, so as you light is visible light that we can see, but there's all different ranges of light electromagnetic radiation that can be produced and radio is one of the longer wavelengths. And that's nice because it can go through materials a away that some of the shorter wavelengths can't. So think about radios you can listen to a radio inside a building. Right. That's because radio wavelengths can get through walls and stuff in a way that say light can't if you unless you have a window right because the lower the wavelength the more can get through things everyday things in the higher the wavelength the less cannon. That's why you can hear AM radio when you can't make out FM radio is because the the frequency is lower. Yeah. Well, it gets a little complicated because different different frequencies interact with different types of material in different ways. But yeah. And the reason this is relevant is because the black hole that we image was near the center of the galaxy. And there's a whole bunch of stuff between us and that most notably like dust and gas, and so if you were to try to look at it in the optical wavelength, you wouldn't be able to see very well because the light gets messed up by all the dust and gas in between, but the radio waves, go straight through. So that's the first point is that what you need is basically a big radio telescope to see this thing. Now, we have radio telescopes actually at many different points all over the world. So we don't have a we don't have a problem there necessarily with looking at the sky in the radio frequency, but the second thing to remember about black holes is that they're very very small. Well, they're not very very small. Like, this one's, you know. Supermassive, and it's the size of like, many, many sons or something. But in terms of how much space takes up in the sky as we look at it. It's very very small. And so that means that we need a very very good angular resolution to see it to let me revolution resolution resolution. Yeah. So we basically need a telescope that can see very very small things. That's all I'm trying to say. But the problem is that a single telescope. There's a there's an inverse relationship between the size of telescope that you have and the resolution that has so bigger telescopes. You can see finer detail. Right. So I by the I just looked it up. The dish is a radio telescope in at Stanford, and it's a hundred and fifty feet diameter. If it was three hundred feet diameter or six hundred feet or twelve hundred feet. It would be able to resolve things that were smaller and smaller and smaller, but it would become exponential. Actually difficult to build a maintain in probably at some point impossible. Yes. Cool. Okay. Yeah. So these things are pretty big just to get kind of basic measurements. And this is this is really pushing the edge in terms of something very very small that you wanna see very far away. So let's do the thought experiment of how big would the help with the dish. After be if you wanted to see this black hole with it. It turns out it's roughly the size of the tire diameter of the earth. So if you. Yeah. So if you turn the entire earth into a radio telescope, and you pointed it at this black hole, you could see roughly

But we're talking about the boot camp that we put on April thirteenth. It's three hours of power packed information. That'll teach you among other things the ten steps for buying a home, the ten steps for selling a home, the myths of real estate and some of the mistakes, and I almost want to say lies of real estate. But. Well, that's a strong word. Do you think you would be incorrect down? And I think the world is catching up with that. Now. Barrett is the world in a big way is catching up with that Larry for the last fifty years, Gallup and Pugh and other polling places of legitimate nature. Have polled consumers where to consumers put the real estate agent who right next to the used car sales. Why figures are both not straightforward with their? Yeah. We're not gonna use the word. We don't have to. We don't have. That's not that's not fair. We don't have to do that. It's not appropriate right now. I don't think it's appropriate right now, but it is appropriate to say because of lack of trust and who has earned that lack of trust Gallup polls. Yes who else has earned that? The lack of trust. Well, it's used car salesman and real estate agent, they deserve the title in fairness in fairness. Thank you do deserve that title, but things are changing their more and more people like Barry, and I who are trying to change the industry. They're now court lawsuits going on trying to get the industry to change the way it's doing it because it's price-fixing among other things. And what a what a shame that the industry can't police itself. Yeah. That's right. Well, you know, you would like to think that the NAR the national association of realtors would do some of that. But berry the just not doing it. They haven't stepped to the plate. Larry lawyers are taking the place. I haven't seen them step to the plate on that issue for decades. Okay. The the, however, they defend homebuyers. They help home sellers. They help the laws prevent other industries from honing in and taking consumers money like putting taxes on the sale of a home extra sales tax. There's a few of those in some pockets in downtown Denver and in the mountains resort properties a few areas have that but the industry is a good consumer advocate in the bigger picture. But in the individual picture, they don't do much to straighten out the lack of trust the dishonesty the deceptive. Give business practices. That's the right word. Larry the deceptive business practices that go on? But Larry we said, we would take callers, and we have Bill calling from our Vada. Let's take that question. Good morning Bill. Good morning. Thank you, gentlemen. So I have a ranch in my question is what do I how do I listen to my basement. Twenty six hundred feet in the basement a basement, and it's twenty two feet. It has a wooden floor in the drywall, but it's not finished. So it's the headline ranch would fifty two hundred square feet Qadhafi. My headline the headline Iraq twenty six hundred feet, and then underneath it. I would include by basement, I'm a little confused at the house the properly list the half up. What would be the headline on the house? Yeah. Well, okay. It's a marketing question. Okay. It's not a legal question because your ranch when you look up the county data has fifty two hundred total square feet. It doesn't matter if you're a real tour or not, but if you were a real tour listing this putting it into MLS, there's a category called total square footage. It would be fifty two hundred. You do not include the garage. You did not Bill. You did the math twenty six hundred plus twenty six hundred a marketing question, how do you market the home? Gets into different scenarios and typically Bill when you're marketing a home, one of the first questions you want to ask is to whom are you marketing? Okay. Let's say you're a for sale by owner, we support for sale by owners do yourself a few people are very capable of doing that. And we support anyone who wants to try it and give them the pros and cons. So let's say you're doing that. Then you'd say, well, let me think it's likely going to be and you describe who the profile what who the profile points to in other words, maybe a young couples with with maybe no children are children coming future may be one young child. Guess what they're going to want more space. So you typically put fifty two hundred square foot ranch three bedroom. Two and a half bath with a full basement. And then you could. Say half finished part finished or pieces of that. But the headlines typically, you're right on would be lovely ranch style. Home fifty two hundred square feet. Now, would I take that fifty two hundred square feet? And let's say I wanted to find a price of where footage would I include the basement is part of the square footage price for math. Excellent question. Yes. Now when I say, yes, I'm giving you the industry standard as based upon appraisals and the real estate industry when they submit properties into the multiple listing system..

Earlier this month when Burger King offered them Walker for one cent. Yes. You heard right. The fast food chain practically gave away their burgers in an effort to steal customers from McDonald's using futuristic technology called geo conquest ING, the concept is a bit technical so bear with me here for a second leveraging geo location technology Burger King drew virtual six hundred foot perimeters around most. Mcdonald's restaurants in the US to create what's called geofencing. Then assuming you had already downloaded Burger King's new app onto your phone the minute you entered that perimeter upward Papa mobile. Add offering you a whopper for a penny to unlock the. Offered you had to place the order from mcdonnell's and the app would respond with directions to the nearest Burger King. Burger King called the campaign, the hopper detour and crowed that for the week of the promotion, they transformed. Mcdonald's into Burger King's well, the whopper detour worked more than fifty thousand customers bit the Burger King app jumped to the top of I tunes food and drink category. As thousands rushed to download it. The strategy is called geo conquest ING for a reason it uses a companies own physical assets like it's restaurants against them. But before you start thinking McDonald's is the underdog in this story. Think again the Walker detour constitutes a major push by Burger King into the mobile app game, which has long been dominated by McDonald's. Reportedly more than sixty million people already have the Mickey D's app on their phones, which gives the comes. Direct free access to their customers. If Burger King app has any hope of catching up, they'll need to offer customers more than seven days of penny patties to do it. In other words, Burger King may have won the week.
