Retreat from rising seas may require more than moving homes

"Rising season erosion are putting many low-lying coastal communities in jeopardy. Some of the places become essentially uninhabitable after a while some of the islands in the South Pacific off the coast of Alaska and other places really don't have a chance of existing fifty years from now. That's Andrew Dannenberg of the University of Washington. He says the risks are forcing some small communities to relocate which can be traumatic. Many these communities are indigenous communities they have. Have lived there for centuries and the idea of abandoning your land and moving is culturally and socially and mentally very difficult, so he says to support vulnerable people. Relocation may need to include more than moving homes to thrive. People also need jobs, schools, community centers hospitals and each other, but it's the culture and resources around you. It's everything from having transportation systems. Having sanitation systems is having the social support of people in the community. Making this all part of a community's relocation plan can be challenging and funding is often scarce, but Donna says that a holistic approach is important to people's health and wellbeing.

In situ resource utilization

"I'm Fraser. Cain publisher of University with me as always Dr Pamela Gate a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director. Cozma quest. If you doing I'm doing well. How are you doing fraser good? We sound particularly of cheery for the apocalypse. It's a Friday. I'm going to go in the yard and burn things later today. We've we've definitely moved from the existential crisis. The deep grief phase of this process to the marathon portion where we are settling in for what is probably going to be months if not years of on and off again restrictions lockdown and quarantines and although is still terrible out there and please everybody you know we through this. Collective sacrifice have made a dent in many countries on the spread of this disease. Now we have to lock it up. Yeah Yeah we have to lock this. Have TO LOWER THE RATE. That is transmitting to other people. To below one and and wipe it out of existence and New Zealand's already succeeded so this is possible. It requires a massive combination of testing and Quarantine and tracking down contacks. But that little island nation or two island nation proved. It is possible now. A LOT OF PLACES OUT. There are lifting their shelter in place warnings. Well you're about to be in trouble in three weeks and we're very sorry. Yeah so even. If the shelter in place has been lifted keep an eye on the spread. Remember how it was spreading back in the beginning and just think about that as well in the end. It's sort of like the responsibilities on each one of us to ensure the safety of everybody around us so so take those with a grain of salt. How the key to surviving in space? We'll be learning how to live off the land instead of carrying all your fuel water and other resources from Earth extract them locally at your destination. It's called Institute Resource Utilization. And if we could figure this out it'll change everything our Pamela. Do a bit of a history lesson here when we talk about. How essentially we couldn't have done exploration here on earth without in. Situ resource utilization. It's the key exactly. Yes and it has actually reshaped our world. Nowhere more so than the island of Iceland. It turns out that sailing ships require masts and masts like to break and way back when the great explorers of the northern oceans. The Vikings came across this place with amazing forests and tall strong trees and they settled in and the mast they needed and carried on with their massive trade. We always highlight the pillaging that occurred but it turned out these were also traders hunters gatherers and well. Iceland was once a greatly forced Atlanta and now it has almost no forests and it's leading the vast amounts of erosion. So be careful what you take. Yeah it's interesting when you're there at Iceland. There are no trees right. That's because the vikings yeah mean there's the occasional tree like a person might have a tree in their yard. Apparently there are now some efforts to attempt to reforest the island in theory you know get another couple of hundred years and there will be focused on on Iceland again but clearly. They found what they needed. They were able to survive by cutting down all those trees. Thanks so maybe that's not necessarily the. How want this lesson to workout? But the point being that the only way they were able to survive was the fact that there were resources that they could use traffic. Cut DOWN ANIMALS. They could hunt fish. Eat things places. They could grow things they were able to survive in. What is a very hostile place? And this is how we have systematically explored our world again another amazing example of the past is the Polynesians. They knew exactly were all the little islands dotting the South Pacific were located and had an amazing. Plus you'll navigation skills and new. If they went from here to here there would be freshwater when they got to the next place there would be food. There would be things necessary to carry on their carrying on as they moved throughout massive areas of the ocean. And so when we look at the history of space exploration plans when you look at the Moon missions they carried everything every calorie that the astronauts would need was carried up from the surface of the earth every drop of water every every molecule of oxygen that they were going to breed. Everything had to be carried completely from Earth. And then all the way back from the moon and back in the fifties sixties seventies eighties nineties. People were planning missions to Mars. That would be the same thing. Carry everything the Mars and then carry it to be able to survive on the on the surface of Mars and carry out a mission. It's not feasible. The math just kept breaking. Yeah and this is where it gets really interesting to me. Just what is considered in situ resource utilization? Basically if you don't have to take something with you that means you are utilizing it where you go and if you don't have to carry all of your own energy with you so say you have solar panels. Those solar panels count as an in situ resource utilization. And it's something that doesn't work everywhere in this hour system because we have places the outer solar system for instance we really need to have those radio thermo generators those nuclear fuel cells whereas on Mars. Unless you're curiosity they just solar power away. And that's a form of institute resource utilization. The Sun is in situ you talk about the power. Yeah let's say you don't have to carry your liquid. Hydrogen liquid oxygen. You don't also don't have to carry the fuel to carry the liquid hydrogen liquid oxygen and so there is this huge multiplier for every kilogram. That you're trying to carry to the surface of Mars. Many kilograms of propellant. Get you there and we. I started seeing people. Think hard about. How do we separate the resources we need from the rocks of other worlds in the nineteen sixties and this started crop up in novels like the Moon is a harsh mistress? Which if you haven't read that is absolutely required reading in modern times and in that novel they were shipping grain seeds from Earth up to the moon utilizing human by products and Water. That was found in the regular of the moon to grow vast crops. That were then shipped back to Earth. Which was actually a day shipping the water from the moon down to Earth

It's The End Of The World! (Again)

"Heaven's Gate wasn't a modern outlier. Apart from the whole two thousand twelve with the Mayan calendar there have been a number of supposed dates for the end of the world. Or of the rapture. What have you? Multiple predictions were made by Harold Camping. Ceo and host of the Christian family radio network programming began as standard hymns and Bible readings. Then things started to get weird camping's first prediction was that the rapture would occur on September fourth or sixth of nineteen. Ninety four left himself a little wiggle room there as well as in the title of his book. Nineteen Ninety four question mark. Nineteen ninety-four came and went but that didn't seem to damage camping's credibility with family radio listeners. He went back to his math. Which we'll get into shortly because walkers and decided the date had to be may twenty first twenty. Eleven according to family radio's website. The Bible guarantees it. I will come a massive earthquake. Powerful enough to throw open all graves. Then we'll follow a slow dying off of all non-believers until the end of the world. This was supposed to begin at Christmas Island in the South Pacific at six PM. Local time going around the world with earthquakes and soon armies hitting each time zone at six. Pm Family Radio and camping's followers funded a huge publicity campaign to warn people park bench ads around the country over three thousand billboards around the world and a five RV caravan to tour America and Canada handing out pamphlets to non believers one ardent believer gave up the better part of his retirement savings. Almost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to help the campaign. What would money matter after he was raptured? Anyway people quit. Their jobs took their kids out of ran up huge credit card bills and did other unadvisable things. That sound like fun when you think there are no consequences even true believers had to reevaluate things when on May twenty second. The world is still here. There are plenty of videos on youtube of that very moment when the apocalypse feels to start you kind of have to feel bad for the fellow that spent his life savings flags. I didn't do the dishes before I left. I didn't expect to be going back on. What looks like I will be going back to your dishes. Camping backpedalled and claimed that meant final judgment was going to be on the twenty first of May but the actual apocalypse wasn't going to be until October twenty first by that point the believers had stopped believing and the media didn't find it sporting to make fun of him anymore. Camping said he was flabbergasted that his predictions had been wrong. How could his math have been so far off? Here is the math. Used Not a word of a lie. People who got higher than a D in Algebra. Both Times like me might want to double check his figures. He started with April. I thirty three C as the date of the crucifixion seems arbitrary. But we know he then took the numbers. Seventeen representing heaven. Ten for completeness and five for Atonement Because One Bible Verse Mentions Half Shekel or point five. Shackle multiply them together square the result and you get seven hundred twenty two thousand five hundred. That's the number of days between the crucifixion. And the second coming his mouth did account for leap years. But I don't know if camping or anyone else who calculated the end of days included things like the shift to the Julian calendar when the Roman Empire just negated eleven days skipped right over them another thing that all the biblical athletes seem to have missed is a verse in the Book of Matthew that specifically says no man can know when the end is coming. So it's actually heretical to claim that you do. The math of basic economics caught up with camping and family radio. They had spent huge sums of money both corporate and donated on the awareness campaign after the hat trick of failures plus another ten predictions. I didn't even get into donations all but stopped and the network was drowning in debt. The world finally ended for Herald camping on December fifteenth. Twenty thirteen when he died after a fall at age. Ninety two. And that's where we run out of ideas at least for today but going back to Joanna south caught. She wasn't a con artist as far as we can tell. She believed in what she was saying. As did her followers South Khan died. Two months after the MESSIAHS projected due date having demonstrably never been pregnant for followers initially refused to bury her believing she would rise from the dead when it became clearly obvious from even a cursory visual or olfactory inspection that she was not coming back the group agreed to bury her south got left behind a locked box full of predictions which she said could only be opened in a time of national crisis in the presence of all twenty four Anglican Bishops.

Spurge is the Word

"Name's Nathan Taylor and I I've been studying you for is for about the about seven years now. Hey Sand Yeah and I particularly focus on a little group called the section Nisa film which is sort of the San Matt like Lance so like spotted spurs prostrate splurge those weedy plants that you get your Your Line Darden. That have that White Milky Sap yet. It's cool that the you know. Those are something I grew up recognizing I mean. I didn't know what they were as a child. But it's it's a familiar group of plants to me you know. I think a lot of people that don't live in arid regions at least. That's probably their main introduction to the Spurs family. But I'm curious. What brought you to this in the first place. We always plant person. And how did you discover you four? Ac's kind of your your focus. Yeah so the main way that I found plants is I live in Dallas. I at the time and I was told by my family that we were moving out to the desert. And where you know. There wasn't really any lush vegetation at all and in the spring. I just saw all kinds of wildflowers and being the kind of person that I am. Naturally I wanted to identify every single one that I saw hand. It just kind of snowballed there now. How I got interested in You. Four via is. I had a mentor of time. Whose name is Bert Williams. And he he knew basically all of the local on the southern highpoints Texas and you four was really just the one group that he sort of just assigned the genus name to and didn't even try with a species. So I I sort of took. That is a challenge and from there when I went to Soros to get my Bachelor's and master's I decided that the best way to study these things would be just a photograph every species in the specimen cabinet. And then go back and look at those at home. Well it turns out that some of the species. That photograph were actually misidentification. Ooh that that added a at an added another Another way to sort of you know. Just push me right into into the groove things. That's a really interesting dive into this world. And from a standpoint of sort of species identification and taxonomy I mean some of the Spurs family's pretty easy to recognize although there's probably plenty of minute details but others can be pretty cryptic which I'm guessing lens to some of the taxonomic end species. Id Confusion You just mentioned definitely. Yeah I mean every every time I go to a herbarium I ended up with a a really good big Saka misidentified before so. This is a big family. And it's one of those that every time I think I have my finger on the pulse of what's going on. I see a few representatives that completely blow my mind in. Send me for a loop but how do you begin to even focus in a family as large as before be acn? I guess from there. We can kind of talk about the subdivisions within that group. Right so I mean the the big thing with you for AC. I mean I'm not. I'm not a huge expert on four. Ac as a whole but but it's really sort of divided by the power structure. You know some some species have pedal some don't Actually probably most of them are money. Isis and then with you for specifically you have the ATM and the site in is is sort of this. Modified infrared essence. That looks like a flower. It's sort of like the composite family in that. It has this the Sudan via this false flower that made up of of an invalid occur and then Various flowers in the middle of it. It is pretty wild to think about that in the context of it being in fluorescence in. It's one of those things that when you say or see anyone on the Internet say you forget. Flowers already. Goes actually. It's a safe but it is a really fascinating structure in it. I'm guessing is kind of what makes you for AC unique or one of the characters that Kinda unites a lot of them Under this taxonomic umbrella definitely and it. It is the essentially. The uniting structure of Euphoria message genus very cool. So how did you end up falling? Into the subgroup Are With the chemist icy type growth form that we've mentioned earlier something that I think a lot of people especially if you live in urban areas or have a sidewalk near your house can probably recognize so it fits into a couple of categories for me that I sort of came to appreciate early on and For whatever reason I really like we species and I really like plants that are small and so this is spit imperfectly for me. And in the fact that the Trans Pecos region of Texas. Which isn't that far away for. Me Is sort of the center of diversity for the group. That's sort of where the plants evolved initially he? The region has sort of a representative of all of the major lineages within this within the section. Oh that's really cool. And so they've just sort of radiated outwards from there and made their way up into the super tempered areas. I'm guessing now because of human activity can be found over a much wider range than the initially would have in a natural setting right right. I mean that that said the you know the the group is actually to diversified on its own worldwide. Yeah so I mean except for the Arctic climates course but yeah it especially in desert. The plants love desserts and really sort of exploded in biodiversity In desert regions around the world. That's excellent and in thinking about the success of a group like this that can conquer so many different types of habitats. I you just said the desserts I see them in temperate zones see them in wet habitats. See them in prairies. A lot of that comes down to the fact that they figured out how to utilize a lot of different types of photosynthetic systems. Right yes yes and actually it is the only see for Winnie edge in phobia and within the section. You actually have both see photosynthesis and an intermediate to photosynthesis which not many people know about. I didn't know that that the but yeah. So it's it's a cool sort of intermediary step that uses a a two carbon molecules sort of funnel the the Co two to the bundle sheath cells instead of a a c four molecule like malic acid and came ascites also has a single C. three plant. Euphoria and Gus Sir. So C four photosynthesis really did serve. Diversify I with this section in this film group he I may have mentioned And basically that sort of the old genus name for it so still switching taxing on gears a little bit if I if I say that that's okay. It's hard to keep up sometimes especially with such complexity in morphology in types in you know this is a group. People generally pay attention to so. Of course there's going to be a lot of changes and updates. But I'm GONNA on the subject of photosynthetic Percy it may be the only genus known that also had as pam it has all those for photosynthetic systems so like the the second species in Africa. He those are actually cam plants so like like tactile out West so you have a wad of diversity in this group as far as photosynthetic systems. It's pretty wild because you know they're plants. Photosynthesis is kind of the main stay of that entire lineage of organisms for the most part and to think about all of the variety in that system you could possibly have. I mean just the thought that there could be an intermediate step between this the C. Two thing that I had never even heard of before until now and I'm wondering if you know is there any indication of what the sort of the end type was for this group or for you phobia in general or is it kind of independent evolutionary trajectories depending on where these originated in how they diversified into what kinds of habitats right right so the the origin of euphoria in general? Masada occur in sort of the South Pacific islands around New Caledonia And it sort of a one of a most ancestoral fees. It's actually not a euphoria. It's I can't remember Gina's name off the top of my head but it has a site apium but it's not quite as well structured as a regular you forget ended sort of a sort of a shrub plants in in that area now the the origin of section in this film. I know a lot more about their a lot of really cool features that sort of unite this group but one of the main things is that I mean it it. It evolved from plants. That looked more. Like let's say the gophers purge so like four elaborate before the rigid That sort of SEO like structure the seventeen setiawah basically it. It has this of main stem with with alternate leaves But the emperor essence is sort of KSM with the world of leaves at the base and then it has Casal Branson's That sort of come off that importance and all on that occasion it has opposite leaves he in section and this film they only have opposite leaves. They don't have any alternate leaves at all and that sort of led to the speculation that basically announce analogous to a an import about SC group

that's gonna be spring storm because players already there we come to the important matter of China and Tonga they're in tangled in what you'd have to say is diplomatic confusion but before we do that is the corona virus a risk in the South Pacific is Tongo worried in any fashion yes they are in fact when I flew here about a week ago on my flight there was that a sports team coming back from six weeks of training in China and they probably had trying at that time on there church China has been doing an enormous amount of boxcar training not just a bureaucrat academic all that sort of stuff but increasingly of sport he said it's currently about forty Tonya and stuck in China they can't get laid out better being kept in their hotel the airport and here at Nicholson has put in place screening for those please give me coming from China but it's quite difficult to control because there are tired charter flights coming in from China with just Chinese on them and unregulated migration is creating a kind of a lot of concern because they come in a church but it's unclear how many of them day so the official estimates of Chinese in Tonga is about two to three thousand that I've I've heard that at a recent head count down on the side gate the numbers were as high as seven thousand which in a population of a hundred thousand is incredibly high garden clear first of all one of these days I'm gonna ask how can I get an assignment to go to the South Pacific slope which out of him and he has a moment are the it is S. workout there are many Chinese floating around the con that but many of them are just refugees from China that they want to get out from the system they want to be able to make money they don't want the government up on their shoulder at and they are economic migrants in a sense but they are people who have fled in Tonga the Chinese are there who are there are they there at the direction of Beijing or are they people like the ones in Africa who are just sort of hoping to get away from it all there are widely speaking three different groups of recently arrived ethnic Chinese and what he said you know there's some Chinese populations in the Pacific we've been here for you know over a hundred years like the ones in French Polynesia whatever time talking mostly but the ones that arrive in the last fifteen to twenty years and an increasingly so over the last few years there one group would be kind of the overt diplomatic corps I said the people associated with the embassy or coming on government missions then there is a cluster of extremely well connected wealthy business people who do who do business in tongue and across the region and they're the ones that will own the massive amount of small local shops that are manned by more migrant Chinese showed there are about eighty to ninety percent of the retail sector in tongue is controlled by the Chinese now that might only be ownership for them the the money might come from maybe half a dozen of well placed Chinese but the the hundreds or thousands of other Chinese who worked there shops may only be here for five six seven years to get enough money to go back

All About Terrariums

"Our eat drink grow section today. Today we're GonNa talk about terrariums which are so much fun so cool allow you to grow so many interesting things and have such such an interesting history and I know Seattle that you wanted to talk about this especially because the history fascinates you so I'm going to just tell people terrariums were once called Wardi. In cases and C. L. is very interested in Dr Ward I believe well Nathaniel Ward apparently developed the first terrarium and it was an accident for him. A you know a fern spore in a jar grew and germinated and then kept growing in. That jar are kind of all on its own and he realized that the jar the glass jar was providing this protected environment and it could keep a plant alive with without doing too much to it for a long time and so he started to build cases that became known as wordy already in cases and it took off in Victorian Times. And what I was very interested to learn ellen about this was is that these Victorian cases ward hired carpenter to build them so that they could transport plants from from the British isles. You know Australia and grow them there. And then take Australian plants and implant them transport them back to England and so these cases really allowed successful worldwide transport of plans. For better or worse. We have today. Now's the great thing about this. The warden case was not only a scientific pictorial. A very important scientific tool because plant explorers were all over the Far East. The South Pacific and there was no way to get these plant samples. Home in plant exploration was big business. So it was an important scientific tool and then it became the must have item. It's a little bit later for Victorian ladies you would go into a Victorian home and sees warning and cases big and small that held all sorts of plants that that never would have been able to grow in a cold coal heated home. Yeah and particularly back that a lot of houses they were not centrally heat right and so here it allowed you to have a a miniature trump castle environment in a house that perhaps was not favorable to plants in general so and and they're like little worlds and so you can understand why they got excited about creating them mm-hmm and why people today are

The History of Tiki Time

"Aw I mean you could be a little bit more cynical and say that don didn't just create this decor out of love it was also to cash in on on something that was very much in the cultural the other thing was that America's well as Europe was in the grips of the great depression everybody's bummed out and they have a little mini vacation in this beautifully appointed fo- Polynesian atmosphere with these amazing exotic cocktails so that's the story signed on the beachcombers atmosphere but what about those cocktails they didn't call it Tiki back then he called them rum rhapsodies there's a little bit pretentiously put an ancient rum in the French style just to make it more classy but here's my question rum is a Caribbean spirit right why not serve Polynesian rhapsodies instead the problem was there's no such thing as a polynesian cocktail I mean he had polynesian decor but what do you serve in the glass in the new Hebrides they did have a polynesian drank native ponies and drink called Kava what they would do they would sit in a circle around a big wooden ball and chew the psychoactive roots of the Kava plant gave you sort of a nice melody sociable high where they chew it spit it into a ball and they'd mix it with coconut milk and then they pass around you and you drank from it this was not the sort of thing that would go over very well in Hollywood and thirty four so no psychoactive saliva base drinks for done but he had another idea he'd also traveled to the Caribbean in those round the world adventures that he'd spent all his college funds John and that's where he had discovered the planners punch in Jamaica and the the dockery and Cuba the Queen's Park swizzle in Trinidad these are all based on rum so don new and he knew rum drinks but rum also had a practical advantage it was the closest spirit available to import Cuba's close by and willing to supply thirsty Americans it accuses right after prohibition and so rob was only spirit that had been readily available in the US while that distillers your non in operation and the term running Shannon must've runs the bar at the Caribbean themed Gladis in Brooklyn and she recently wrote a cocktail book called Tiki earn tropical cocktails and Shannon says that Rome was actually the cheapest to for bar operator costs was really important especially as you're talking about being in the Great Depression so ram fit the bill was expensive in costume much contracts at the whisky which is really expensive because there wasn't the really wasn't any left in this let me take a few years make more whiskey and agent the dawn has rum and he knows some of the basic Caribbean rum drinks but he doesn't just serve those Caribbean drinks he reinvent it's them and it was an entirely new way to serve and mix cocktail he basically took the three hundred year old planters punch poem I'm one of sour to sweet three of strong four of week sour being citrus sweeping sugar strong being rum and week being water ice and he squared or cubed he was like okay I could use lime juice as my sour but what if I mix lime and grapefruit in the same drink and how about instead of just Grizz my sweet what if I mix honey and maple syrup together or infused my sugar Syrup with some spices or pomegranate syrup so he dimensional is D- those two elements and also so what was really radical and brown breaking was that he did the same thing with the strong instead of just one rum he would say okay planners punch generally has dark Jamaican Punch one minute what if I added to that in the same glass a white Puerto Rican or Cuban room which has a more floral dryer kind of file the two rum's enhancing inform each other the Puerto Rican rum cuts the heavy molasses sweetness and density of the Jamaican and the Jamaican adds flavor and depth to the light dry Puerto Rican so anyway this was revolutionary nobody'd ever had drinks like this for nobody's ever made drinks like before that basic idea take a plant as punch and Cuban that's the recipe for what became Don's most famous drink the drink put him on the map the Zombie Don Lake to tell a tale of how he invented the Zombie a businessman came in and was so hung over and he had a sales meeting on made him a couple of these and he walked in like Zombie and nailed it but there's no way as perfect as this cocktail is that donges whipped up behind the bar in two seconds there was a lot of you know coaxing in finessing with these rooms and the dawn's makes in the Porno and the bidders but yet that's the legend that don created for it but yeah it was strong it was popular and there was a limit of two in the bar you can have more than two but even with the limit that didn't up the crowds from storming as place they were lines out the door it was a real see and be seen everyone that went into don the beachcomber was a WHO's who of Hollywood Howard Hughes in Grant Joan Crawford Clark Gable Don's little bar was a huge success so almost immediately there were copycats people started putting up their own version of a Polynesian Paradise all over la remember Americans were already obsessed with the South Seas but the whole vibe struck a particular chord in California first of all Californians of course really embrace surfing in this period which is a Hawaiian Sport and you know there's also a kind of a belief in a sort of shared attitude and aesthetic sensibility right so Californians very much the themselves as you know more modern and more relaxed than the rest of the United States are certainly more so than the kind of Stodgy East Coast Sara Miller Davenport is a historian at the University of Sheffield and she just wrote a book called a Gateway State Hawaii and the cultural transformation of American Empire Californians just vibe at aloha spirit so within a couple of years they were copycat bars all across the state most of them are just knockoffs and nothing to write home about but Jeff Ameri told us one of those copycat bars was really the equal of done the beachcombers the only restaurant tour who went Tiki or went four Polynesian in the nineteen thirties who could rival Don's palette and his skill was a guy named Victor Berge on He was the French Canadian son of a waiter in Oakland and he was in San Francisco he had his own little place there called Hinky Dink's was famous for a Frankenstein you get frank and a Stein for ten cents and he thinks was basically just a little barbecue shack with a Alaskan I rapper theme you know snow shoes and taxidermy on the walls in nineteen thirty seven he took a vacation to Hollywood and discovered on the beachcombers and like everybody else he he waited on line for ninety minutes to get into the bar he saw the popularity of what was happening at Don the beachcomber and try to recreate that up in his place and he turns and hangings into Trey Vicks and he turned himself from Victor Berge Ron into trader Vic Bergeron chair Vic as he was now known he was super savvy any seems to have had a great pallet everyone else was just copying done but trader vic actually used new spirits and juices and invented his own drinks and the food in his restaurants was revolutionary for mid-century. US I mean he introduced on elements of east Indian Malaysian Jap in these and other cuisines on his menu which was unheard of at the time like Donna beachcombers and all these other taking place just serve basic cantonese Chinese food is cheap the Chinese cook and then that would be that but vic pioneered what he called international cuisine and it he did it very very well to the point where he had white tableclo- fine dining restaurants multicourse meals of his own invention vic was also something of a showman he had a wooden leg from from his childhood illness but he would invite people to stick a fork in it and then he would tell them that he lost it to a shark on the high-seas but don the beachcomber and trader vic or soon franchising around the country you WanNa Polynesian themed night out on the Down in Chicago complete with dancing ladies and tropical drinks and an expensive dinner you got it that could've gotten old but then World War Two happens and things get even worse and more and more people flocked picky bars and then Gi's come back from the actual South Pacific with a renewed interest and all that and in the nineteen fifties everything combines you have a booming postwar many facturing economy you have all these vets coming back writing and making movies about their experiences and Tiki just goes into overdrive and it's perfectly suited for the Eisenhower era suburban culture as well which is kind of stifling and moralistic but you can make a little escape into the Pagan South seas in your local Tiki Bar International level was still a little too expensive for regular people in the nineteen fifties but increasingly a middle class couple could treat themselves to a nice night out and get away from it all that way the musical South Pacific came out in nineteen forty nine does this mean I finally finally get to play a little bit of something that booth you Nikki and my partner Tim like to make fun of me about what might deep and abiding love of musical theatre dear God there's no stopping you is there nope Pacific here we come some and Charlie the you may see a stranger thanks for indulging me going to let you make a habit of it okay see anyway the point is Tiki just kept getting more and more popular things continue to grow a pace in the nineteen sixties when you see really the height of Fo- Polynesian Restaurant Chic nece sort of Tiki chic but these were not low end beach bars or Jimmy Buffet Style replaces most of them like trader Vic's on the beachcomber and Stephen Crane's kon-tiki chain were high end luxury restaurants and they were event dining in people would save up and go out on a Friday night in their best clothes to these places even Disney got in on the tiki craze with its very own enchanted tiki room it opened in eighteen sixty three and drilled it soundtrack into the brains of America and even in the nineteen sixties international travel was still expensive and so Sarah says are white middle class Americans these tiki bars and restaurants allowed them to feel cosmopolitan going to Tiki bars right becomes in order these Polynesian restaurants becomes a way to sort of from any white people right to express your kind of embrace of foreign cultures in this moment and speaking of embrace Tiki bars and this whole American love affair with Bo Polynesian everything by the nineteen sixties it's not just about being open minded did it's about being sexy which is a period where more broadly a loosening of some of these sexual norms and I think there's something very appealing to women or at least in the way that these various cookbooks and magazines portray it for women kind of cross these racial boundaries right to kind of play act as a kind of Polynesian princess white middle class women went to Tiki bars and held back yard luos and dressed in moves and eight that FO- Polynesian Pan Asian cuisine the way it's described as often as a way of the Luau is a chance to kind of loosen up it's a chance to play act as as a Polynesian woman right and of course the stereotype of Polynesian women is there you know much more overtly sexual than white

"And welcome back to coast to coast. George Noory with you along with Gregg little, as we talk about Edgar Casey in terms of Casey. He mentioned, the history of ancient America. Give us a little overview, if you can Greg. Oh my well Casey, I can America's history, sort of intertwines with that of Atlantis, which Atlanta's began in two hundred ten thousand BC, but there were people here in the Americas, according to Casey as long ago, as ten million years, they were mainly in the southwest how much influence they had was not a lot that would only be traces left of them today. But that's where that's where the history of the ancient America's began with Casey. He did say that lots of people came in here before. Before the standard timeframe. Say that there was nobody here before, say ten to twelve thousand BC now the date, by the mainstream archaeology. They say there was nobody here before roughly seventeen thousand BC or so. And that's all that's all. Just that's ridiculous. Casey said that they were here as lots of people were here by fifty thousand BC. More people came in and twenty eight thousand Basie more people came in and ten thousand eight they came in mainly from Atlantis, they came in from the South Pacific, and that I find most interesting, he said that, that a whole group of people from the South Pacific came to South America, and then eventually came to the south west of North America by fifty thousand BC mainstream archaeological genetics research shows that, that is the case that it is very, very likely if not an absolute certainty that some people came in to South America. From the South Pacific islands like New Zealand, and Australia at least by fifty thousand BC, and there are traces of those people still present today in South America. So Casey's history is about the destruction of Atlantis, the destruction of MU Orla myriad in the South Pacific, and the migrations of those people to the Americas. He said that the purest blood Atlantique into exists today were native Americans, Casey was very specific to call them the red race. And he said that the noble, the nobility of the Iroquois was, essentially, the purest blood, Atlanta that, that remained. There is a type of genetic research called mighty Conrail DNA, which is kind of pinpointed the type of the NFL. A that they may have had it's known as hapless group x long involved story, and it would take more than our explain, what might Conrail DNA is if we even can. Well, we can explain what it is, is just that you just gotta keep a lot of things in mind as you go through the explanation, and that that's really graduate school type stuff actually taught in psychopharmacology and talked a lot about the mighty Conrail. The mighty Qendra got involved in all this research. Because native American tribes has some of them have high rates of obesity and diabetes. The Pima tribe in the south, west really is the tribe all the might convert research started, and it was about forty five years ago. It all started in Atlanta at Emory University, and they were trying to figure out why the Pima Indians in particular had this high rate of obesity, even at birth and type two diabetes. At birth that research. Paradoxically has pointed out where native Americans came from and win. And it's, it's a very complex picture of many people making many different migrations here and amazingly, it all falls in line with what Casey said back in the nineteen late nineteen twenties, and nineteen thirties, h in America, so strange either Casey, a remarkably good guess which would be pretty incredible coincidence. Or there is something real to making some psychic predictions, and getting information from that psychic ether, whatever it is. Well, and he knew how to tap into that, for sure. You've got a book coming out, is it in September with Andrew Collins called Denisa, then origins, they Denisa wtn's is a newly discovered branch of humanity actually dead branch that was even before the knee Andrew falls. And then ISA in DNA has been totally sequenced. And we know that native Americans carry some Denisa in DNA, and the Andhra thal DNA, as well as fully modern human DNA. So the, the theory that's in that book. Is that the that in very early times Denisa vans, and the end of falls and modern humans worn around two hundred thousand years ago, the evidence is that people came to the Americas? Well before two hundred thousand years ago, the earliest people that came here didn't leave much of a trace, and they apparently didn't make it. They died off. And then a more groups came in there were giants and the term giants means nothing more than unusually tall, people, I tell the story all the time, I once stood next to Wilt Chamberlain, and Wilt Chamberlain to me, who I'm five foot nine and three quarters close as I can to five ten he was like seven one or something. Yeah. But he was a giant, the man was huge. And I mean, imposing and somebody that saw him. Him somebody that's average size that would stand next to somebody like that would call him a giant and we know that they were still these giants were still around in the Americas. When the first year opinions came into South America, and in North America and her Nando this outta fifth in fifteen thirty nine in his excursion through the southeast bounce sites, which were still being inhabited in the southeast had seven foot tall chiefs that were the leaders of them, and that's all very well documented, so we know that they were real, and we know that they were here. So we believe that these seven footers is genetically define group of people that probably do go back to it Lantis. Although we don't say that in the book, what we say is that they are specific type of the niece, then hybrid with, with fully modern humans. They did Dina. Here of mound building, which is which started roughly in one thousand BC. In their mounds? That's where all of these almost all those seventeen seven footer seven to eight foot tall. Skeletons were removed by the Smithsonian almost all from the Edina. Where do you what do you think the mounds were used for? Well, we know what some of them were used for there were I actually listened to the first two hours of your show. Okay. Very impressed. Wonderful stuff knows his business. Yes. There were probably this Massoni and identified a hundred thousand mound sites. Now, those sites heads like you mentioned, Cahokia hokey, once had one hundred twenty mounds at at, at the main site, and there's there's around ninety right now, which they've identified I think it's sixty four in the park itself, so that, that would be one of the sites that they found. So these sites could have a hundred miles, some of them can just have a few Alabama had thousands of them along. What is now called the ten time the Tennessee Tom Biggby waterway when they built that thing which it's actually a canal they did, and archaeological survey and probably found the thousand mounds that were there that are in very remote areas that are swampy that are dense woods, and they just weren't known about those were discovered in the seventies. So they're still finding them. But there were. Probably million. Most of them more than half were are conical cone, shaped burial, mounds. But then there are lots of them that are geometric mounds, that like he mentioned, the, the octagon and circle in Newark, Ohio, and the great circle, and the Newark mounds are actually the world's largest geometric of works. It anywhere grand handcock was impressed with it so impressed with that. I think he's more impressed with American earthworks than he is like Stonehenge just a couple of places in the America in America, overwhelm everything in England. Avebury in England, which which is the world's largest stone circle. It's very impressive, because it has this earth, work around, they call it they would call it a barrel out around the outside. So it's a huge circle it's roughly fifty acres and size, and it has a moat on the interior while the great circle at Newark. Ohio is dental to it and in the center of it, it has an effigy of a mound effigy built of an eagle laying on its back. There's only one opening in this in this, manned, great circle in Newark. When I say it's a great circle. It's a perfectly flat area that has a roughly sixteen foot tall earth work along the outside perfect circle. And on the interior of it is a seven to eight foot deep in the moat very, very strange, but the exact same sizes. Avebury a lot of the mounds were in fact, stone covered the one that he mentioned of Miami's Bergen Ohio enormous amount, but it was once covered with stone slabs all of those stone slabs where we moved by the first settlers that came in and they were used for buildings. It was just very convenient and used them for building. But about four feet down into that mound are more stone slabs. There are many mounds that were in fact covered by stone. They they're not technically stone pyramids where they're solid stone. You also mentioned Cahokia Cahokia has in its base the mound. It covers fourteen acres. It's a hundred feet tall tall ten story building monks mound. Yes, ma'am, it has at its base. A huge stone structure that is roughly forty five feet long, thirty feet high. Nobody knows what it is. They have found it through drilling. They've drilled into it and they've done ground penetrating radar. Now what it probably is, is a tomb very elaborate tune, but we'll never know because the laws preclude digging into it, and we'll probably we certainly won't know in our lifetime someday, they may have some sort of technology that can see into the not in our lifetime. So other mounds are used to make alignments to the stars actually did a series of studies that the research is included in that new book where these mounds aligned to the setting of the stars Orion. And, and then ebb of. Cygnus and the Milky Way and the winter solstice sunset, so you could stand on one mound and look across the 'nother, and you could see a star setting right behind a mound, and it was done for a death journey which the debt journey appears to be the way they controlled the populace, and it was these elite seven feet tall. Plus people who were the leaders of the you can call them tribes. Although we don't know what they call themselves. They would erect these geometric earthworks for these ceremonies, and the death journey is one of many, but it is believed that it was the most important one and we know all of the all of the components of the death journey now it's not something that I'm speculating about is now in mainstream archeology and actually did all that work because they couldn't dig into mounds anymore. Starting in nineteen ninety they were not able to do excavations in burials anymore. So they turned their attention to something else. And that was, let's figure out what all these all these symbols mean that we've recovered from that. Why would Casey Greg be interested in mounds in areas like that? I don't think Casey hit any interested at all. He was about it case. He wasn't interested in a lot of this stuff some, but people would ask him. He would go into these psychic transit, and in these psychic trances, there would be a conductor, that's what they called the person off, and it was his wife and she would have a list of questions. So Edgar would go into this hypnotic trance south at trans, and he would just be going. Edgar would check out. He had no idea what was said. In fact, a lot of the time he wasn't even interested. They began to write down every single word that was set in these ratings in nineteen twenty three and there's over fourteen thousand of these, there's it's like fifty thousand pages. Now, you can access all of that online, if you're a member of the ARE, you can look up these things on in the readings all online, but you have to be a member. I and for example, you could stick the word. Automaton interesting word. I'm I deliberately chose that you can stick the word automaton into the readings and you'll get several of Casey readings popping up that talk about how the land teens genetically created a group of automatons they're also called things, and they were made generically to do work. They were like worker bees. And then there was a group of very negative people in Atlantis who began having sex with them, and they created a different race of people, and that, and so it's all about a Solis race. I mean, it's, it's just fascinating stuff. But there's so much of this in the Casey, readings and even after all these years, no one has really put it all out there. And there's thousands of books about Casey, but who knew about the Automata. John's and the things those old movies about Atlantis where you see, can't remember the name of the one, but it shows the crystals and death rays and all that. It also shows the things all of that stuff came out of the AKC, readings everything in that movie. You now it's a very sensationalized version of it, but Casey gave a really detailed explanation of it. Sure did Greg. Let's give out your websites. Yeah. Go to the, the Casey organization has a special just because of your show and it's WWW dot Edgar, Casey. C. A Y, C dot org. Free book. And if you become a member, and they have an incredible magazine you can only get it being a member and get access to the readings in a whole lot.

Four river systems, the Pineda the venue, the omega and the MCI. Jim part at least part of the thinking is that they're driving south towards Moscow six hundred miles away. How are they going to take the railroad? What is their thinking? The third battalion which was sent straight south and never really got too far Passover sky about one hundred miles south of archangel. They were gonna just force it. I mean, they wanted to get initially this up town called pleasant sky where there was a main Bolshevik base. So they just they spent most of the fall winter trying to force the way down to railway with the like, I said sort of pine sky idea that they're going to be able to push four hundred miles to the Lago. All right. Let's let's go that I attack stripe down towards the O sky in the first battle of which you have over many days September eight September sixteenth. This is company k and other elements. They meet up with Bolshevik air. There's a there's a there's an airplane spotting my company of the Bolsheviks have artillery. There's a bridge that has burned to keep the Bolsheviks coming across and counterattacking at night and at one point. The company I reports that there's a rail gun coming up, Jim the three thirty nine is outgunned. The American forces are have no good information. And for heaven's sakes. The enemy has air era thority. In fact. Canadian artillery, finally not until later in the fall. These guys were veteran to the western front, and they were known as real cutthroats and just really hardened veterans. When these initial moves down the the river, I should say runs north up the river down the railway line. They were basically armed pretty much. Just the rifles in the sheen guns. So yeah, they were outgunned from the gecko and the rifles. They had were inferior to the Bolshevik rifles the Bolsheviks had our rifles. And we have there's is that how it went. Turn in their leeann field of and were issued American-made Russian-designed of rifles really for the reason being that there were millions of bullets stored at archangel so they would have available well ammunition for their inferior weapons. They jammed they're hard to clean and. The aim was so poor that they could shoot around corners with them. So yeah, they were nobody likes these rifle. There are many anecdotes gyms book. I just highlight the first one because of the the futility of this is obvious right away. We'll go to subscriber this is on the Vinnie at this is on the Vinnie companies ABC in D And there's another enemy out there. It's influenza. I'm presuming they brought with them from the camps in Britain as I wear it came from. Ships that they use these transports Russia had seen service in the South Pacific. And you know, those influences were starting to rage around the world and the thinking was that the bacterial or whatever? Virus for the on? Board ships men started getting the flu shortly after leaving England. There were a few van died and had to be tossed overboard berry. Let's see by the time. They got the archangel ensuing weeks. Seventy seventy men died from influence along and the Russian people, the peasants, they also are suffering from influenza, you have horrible scenes of whole families dying and men just sitting there starving to death. He's the these the so called supporters of the Bolsheviks that the American army is running across in its Vance's. The locals. Kind of want to be left alone. They weren't real up on sanitary practices, and as it got colder and colder these families. They would seal their houses up -pletely windows, doors, everything, and so they never had any way to clean them out. The Americans tried to teach them to the dental eight air this your replaces out, but a lot of the peasants died by the ones that brought by Americans. So we're looking at the landscape that is being depopulated by influenza. And then the Bolsheviks are are forcing people to join what will become the vast Red Army. The Americans have one regiment and one battalion of engineers attached to a forest that's directed by the British who is Ironside. And where is he? Well, it started out. frederick pool general general sort of rather inexplicably left i think in october of nineteen eighteen avenue take vacation and he's really pushing this big grand plan of revolution ironside edmund ironside was a general he had been fighting on the western front and one day he was notified that he's to get packed up and go to russia take over the operation himself so when he got up there too dark angel region he took out through evaluation of what was going on and he saw that probably was not doing real well wasn't going to do anything the rather than call for withdrawal which would leave the troops treating a vulnerable he ordered men pretty much stay in one place dig into the winter and pretty much in his mind he already was thinking about getting them.

"And so I'm really surprised that they aren't appearing to to work together. More. I think it does change the dynamics. I mean, you know, when you're out there, just by yourself. It's very hard to gain that momentum. Like we saw with Russell it's hard to gain that mental. So I would say that they should stick together, you know, especially build merge, but it definitely changes. You know, it was interesting in those two seasons back to back in redemption island, and then in South Pacific there were. Oh, swaps either. So I think that that really did lead to you know, this idea of this. This is our group. It's our group versus they are group, and you guys had a very divided post merge. And even at the point where you and Ozzy were both there at the merge that there was no room to work together. Because that you were so dug in with your group. Do you think that if we get point where the returning players get together will they be sort of like forced to work against each other? Yeah. I don't know. Maybe it depends. Right. It depends on on what they have coming into the game. I mean, they've said a very interesting comment. And I I'm not smart enough to connect the dots. But he said of various and interesting comedy said, I know Kelly is going to be gone from the first chance she gets. And that was really surprised me because I don't know what bags these players have again, I'm not smart enough to remember what the same season together. I mean, especially going back, then when they were your. Yeah, they weren't. Okay. So you know, I mean to me that's like depriving like forget about everything else. But let's come together and work. It would be interesting. If there is a a tribe. Swap, you know, it's also interesting. I never have been at a tribe. Slop, scares the heck out of me to think about that. Just my wife house maybe today. She was like, oh, yeah. What was it? Like when you swap. And I was like never slopped. So it will be interesting. If that happens, then also depend on where they are. Right. I mean if Kelly. Sala wyans or they call 'em alliances anymore. But if she feels comfortable with her position she might feel threatened by the returning players and try to get them out. Okay. I wanna look at this from a couple of different perspectives. From David's perspective, he seemed like he wanted to get rid of Kelly and potentially be the only returning in that group. Do you think that that is a mistake? Or is that the right way, he should be looking at it. While it's, you know, Kelly actually, stole align from myself where I said killer Beachill and actually that was from Duke Kook, Kim the Korean fighter that got killed in the ring against room. And if you remember that last time that wrote on his lamp shade killer be killed. But I mean that is the art of war, right? And so we don't know what that baggage is some people say, oh, why are you voting out Brandon because he's strong, and you should take him to the end. Which is where the dragons they're actually came. From was an interview that I gave a confessional that. I gave about why am I voting off this guy because he's so strong, dude he's coming towards me. So you know, if David knows that Kelly's gun inform, obviously, it's the right move. If she's not really gunning for him. We haven't seen one moment. So far were really looks like she's gone in for him. Then I think it's a mistake. Yes. She hasn't mentioned it, and I think she's just busy trying to fight for her life trying to take out these people that were coming for. I actually thought that there was some similarity between. What Kelly has gone through and a little bit of what you were facing in the beginning of survivor South Pacific, where there were a couple of people like Christine who seemed like that they were very much about the, hey, I don't wanna work with the returning player. Yeah. I mean, I really I mean, you know, I'm pretty good with my life. I have very few regrets. But my goodness I to that final tribal council..

Jason, according to native American tradition is sasquatch a physical being of the earth realm is it as a spiritual being that comes from the underworld a somewhere in between tell me. Well, I'm no sasquatch or Bigfoot expert. I have to confess, but when it comes to any other than human intelligence with a form of sentence. In the native American Cosmo sits important to remember that they are both spiritual and physical beings. Western science today has taken hold of the material aspect of reality and magnified it to such a degree that it's possible that as we pursue any ancient mystery were making the mistake of not using the spiritual perspective as well. So, you know, there there are native American traditions of woods, spirits, windy, go and things of that nature. If someone we're going to investigate something like that on any types of empirical grounds, they would need the proper perspective. I. But do they consider sasquatch to be sacred, for example? Well, I'm not entirely sure. It's a mainly a north western coast tradition. The sasquatch though as a and other than human being would be considered an entity that could exist between two worlds that's much as I can probably say about it. All right. Let's go to Tidewater Virginia. And Keith welcome aboard. Coast to coast AM. Hello, richard. And jason. Thank you feel my call. Our pleasure, Craig all very interesting and speaking of sacred. What do you what do y'all think about this just this week? I watched an eighteen part series on YouTube entitled he walked the Americas. And the short videos are eighteen reports of a white man with a beard visiting and teaching and healing and performing other miracles for native tribes all over north and South American the islands of the South Pacific and the Caribbean. And it's believed that the white man which is Christ in a few of the things that y'all have spoken up. Tonight are also mentioned in some of the videos that series on YouTube has the same title of a book written in nineteen sixty three by l Taylor Hanson. He walked the Americas. And it seems. Be related to a book reported to be written by ancient American Israelite prophets translate and publish in eighteen thirty entitled the book of Mormon another testing of Jesus Christ, which prophesied of Jesus Christ. And also gets an account Jesus Christ also visiting the people in America two thousand years ago, and we have reports from four to five centuries ago that seemed to confirm Jesus Christ earlier visit to the Americas the islands because of the wonderful welcome and the initial Royal treatment even worship that so many of the white-bearded European colonizers explorers receipt. And that was the case here in southeastern Virginia four hundred twelve years ago when the English arrived and settled at Jamestown, America's first, permanent English colony. What do you think about that? And have you researched into any of us? Great. Great question. Keith. Alright jason. Yeah. What do you think? Jesus Christ in North America. A two thousand years ago. Well, first of all I can only report on the things that I actually study and I have not researched the possibility of Christ in the Americas. But I will say that I would never put any limit on anything that Jesus Christ would do even in the gospels. We're told after the resurrection that he did many many things that you're not recorded at scripture. Is a limitless being limitless God, and he can do whatever he likes whether theologians like it or not. Had he chosen to visit North America would have been no problem for him. But one thing about Christ. That really intrigues me is that you know, he is a perfect symbolic representation of the access Monday and the three worlds. Hey died on a tree across on top of a hill. Golgotha on the hill is the image of a skull. Which is why go gossip is called the place of the skull after desks Christ descended into the underworld and witnessed against the powers who preside there after the resurrection in the earth realm Christ, then ascended to the father and the upper heavenly vault. Completing his exploration of the three realms in the gospel story, and we find a representation of all three ancient realms going back to the beginning of religion here in the story of the death and resurrection of Christ. What is the concept of an afterlife in native American cosmetology? What happens to our spirit or our soul when we die. Oh, it's very interesting. The sole travels usually to the western edge of the Earth Island or earth disc when it enters into the starry vault, and then takes the Milky Way as a river or path of souls to the entry way to the land of the dead. And in the land of the dead. There's sometimes it's portrayed as a place where the natural laws of the world. We inhabit are reversed when it is daylight here does nighttime there, for example. Sometimes the sun is considered to enter into this land. When it sets at the end of the day. There are several interesting figures associated with this land of the dead. For example. There's a lunar goddess who is also an earth mother known among the shawnee as cocoa FINA who lives in the land of the dead and takes care of newborn souls as well as the souls of the deceased in a cycle of life, death and reincarnation. So this this general belief system has been found in the people of at least twenty seven different languages in the in the Milky Way, there is the that the great rift. I believe it's called. I think the Mayans kinda referred to it as the birth canal of the universe. Does that have any relation to the afterlife and native American cosmetology? Absolutely. The this is where in many of the dead. Journey cosmology, especially among central Elgon, Ken people, such as the Miskolc the FOX that a tester is encountered that challenges the soul before it can pass any further those who fail the test follow one of the divisional pats perceptible in the Milky Way and those who succeed follow the other pass.

There are no angels here. But of course, the eighth easiest cosmonauts were super pumped, right? As we suspected. No God up here in Russia. God live on star. There is a place where it is even harder to prey, but it's right next to one where it's even easier you need to go to the South Pacific. French Polynesia do need to go to French pollen in so many levels, we need to take the showed up to you know, anyone that's been to French Polynesian. I know somebody who just got back from Tahiti, and they really do talk about it in some kind of religious way like a retired man from the mentioned seventy it's true for me to the people that are like we stayed in a house that was on stilts above as your blue sea. And there was no electricity. But it didn't matter when we even need electricity, man. The turtles brought us are my ties every after every day, some people that were curiously employed by the resort that. I was staying bring me fresh guava, and it all seems so free free life down there for these these seemed happy tonight hunky ally, just bring you everything you want. It really must be great what a paradise. But praying it's tricky in the archipelago of the atolls of Temo Tongi. It is the point on the earth, which is exactly anti-poll to mecca. Wow. So what do you do if you drilled a hole through the earth surface? You had come out in the Kaaba and annoy so many Muslims, you might come out like the moment and a bunch of people doing the show off would fall into your whole where your drill car came out would be followed by high pressure jet of molten iron and wood Bom everybody seriously out a chill guy with carrying Aguado juice. Which would relax everyone. What? Well, this is cool. Why do we even have electric? So does that mean that you could pray in any direction? Well, if you're in one of these islands, you if you were to jump to a different island from one of these tools, for example, you might face do west because you're slightly east of the antidote. But then slowly west of the do is determined how because if you're if you're that far down. I mean, we think in North America west seems pretty easy to determine the continental divide. You're on top of the continental divide. You drop a drip of water from your drip of guava juice from your canteen, which way does it. Go to the Mississippi. If you if you go to. If you're one inch to the west that will drain into the snake, then the Columbia, then into the real easy to if you go one inch to the east that water will drain into the Mississippi, Missouri river system out into the Gulf probably, but if you're down very small difference if you're in. Miles is west along the longitudinal loan, which means that it's a pretty short distance around the globe at that point. Well, let's see let's assume we're doing a great circle. So from New Zealand is probably a clearer one. But from what I'm saying is from this one archipelago, which is exactly opposite mecca, you could travel just to an island twenty miles away and suddenly you'd have exact opposite right direction. Like raindrop on the continental divide. And there's also all these points all these islands surround one spot, which is the easiest place on earth for a faithful Muslim to perform a lot..
