"spice islands" Discussed on This Day in History Class

"The day was september twentieth fifteen nineteen portuguese explorer ferdinand magellan set sail with a crew of two hundred and seventy sailors on what would ultimately become the first successful voyage around the world. However there are some important caveats to this story to keep in mind for one thing. The main concern of magellan and his crew wasn't to make history by circumnavigating the globe. The real goal of their expedition was to find a westward route to the maluku islands of modern indonesia where they plan to pillage a fortunes worth of exotic spices. The other thing worth clarifying is that only some of the crew managed to sail around the entire globe. The vast majority including magellan himself did not survive the return trip but before we get to the end of the journey. Let's talk a little about how it began. Magellan was born to a noble portuguese family in fourteen eighty in his youth he served in the royal court as a page to queen consort. Eleanor and king. Manuel the first at the time. European aristocrats were with the taste of foreign spices like nutmeg cloves and mace. These new lucrative imports sparked a heated competition between portugal and spain to see who could discover and claim the best trade routes to the so-called spice islands in fifteen o five when he was twenty. Five years old. Magellan joined a portuguese military fleet that was bound for india over. The next decade. Magellan would travel to malaysia indonesia and morocco as well and along the way he learned the basics of navigation and fought in several naval battles with spain for control of routes along the indian ocean in fifteen thirteen while fighting morrish forces in morocco. Magellan sustained a leg wound. That would leave him with a limp for the rest of his life although he had made a name for himself in battle magellan was soon accused of illegal trading with the very people he was fighting against. The accusations were largely unfounded but they were enough to ruin his reputation in portugal and sour. His relationship with king manuel. The i finally in fifteen seventeen after being dismissed from service to his home country. Magellan join the competition and pledged his allegiance to spain. By that time. Portugal had gotten the upper hand in the spice war. It controlled access to the primary. Trade routes that led east from europe to indonesia by going around africa's cape of good hope. Spain was quickly being boxed out of the spice trade. But magellan thought he had a solution he went to the king of spain. Charles the fifth and suggested sailing in the opposite direction. West rather than east magellan believed the going west would lead them to a straight. That was rumored to run through south. America king charles was thrilled at the prospect of sticking it to the portuguese and agreed to finance a five ship voyage in search of a westward route to the spice islands. Most people thought the voyage was doomed from the start largely on account of all those sea monsters. That were sure to be lurking in the uncharted waters. But one member of magellan's crew bolstered confidence in the mission eight years earlier while helping to invade the malaysian port. City of malacca. Magellan took possession of an enslaved man named enrica. He was fluent in the malay- language which made him in ideal. Interpreter and king. Charles felt much better about funding the voyage knowing that enrica would be going along to translate as for the rest of the crew. They inspired less confidence. Most spanish sailors had refused to join. An expedition led by man. So instead magellan was forced to settle for less experienced crewman many of them were criminals loaned from prisons and others joined mainly as a way to avoid their debt collectors. As you might expect the unsavory crew caused some problems for magellan in march of fifteen twenty six months after the voyage began three of his captains incited a mutiny and tried to kill him instead. Magellan killed them and to send a message to the rest of the crew. He had the bodies drawn quartered and impaled on spikes on the shore of argentina after that cheery interlude the five ships continued their voyage across the pacific ocean dealing with scurvy and starvation. Along the way and stopping off briefly in guam to massacre indigenous people one month later the crew reached the philippines where they were shocked to learn that enrica could understand in speak the local language. Historians suggest that enrica may have been raised there in the central philippines before being sold into slavery in sumatra and eventually taken some alaka where he was bought by magellan. This raises a very interesting possibility. But we'll get back to that in just a minute. Within rica acting as interpreter magellan decided to claim the philippines on behalf of spain. He demanded the native people to convert to christianity and wound up starting an unnecessary war between those who were willing to do. So and those who weren't on april twenty-seventh fifteen twenty one. This rash act of colonization backfired. When magellan was killed by poison-arrow while attacking chieftain who opposed his rule. He never made it to the spice islands and it was his own fault. After magellan's death his crew continued on and eventually made it to the maluku islands in november of fifteen twenty one in september of the next year. The expedition finally returned to spain with three hundred and eighty-one sacks of to show for their trouble in total. They had traveled more than sixty thousand miles round trip. Losing four out of five ships and eighty percent of the crew and the process still the survivors had proven that it was possible to circumnavigate the globe. And the new routes they had charted would soon pave the way for european colonization of the new world for better or worse. Okay so who was the first person to sail around the entire world. They're actually a few options. The most obvious would be the surviving crew members who actually completed the voyage and made it back to spain. In fact the captain of the one remaining ship a man named juan sebastian. Del volcano was given credit for the first circumnavigation by the spanish crown. The other possibility involves the expedition's interpreter in rica if historians are correct and he was raised in the central philippines before his enslavement. That would make him the first person to circumnavigate the globe beating the rest of the crew by well over a year. Either way the one thing we know for sure is definitely wasn't magellan i'm gave leuze and hopefully you now know a little more about history today than you did yesterday. Also we've made a slight adjustment to our social media handles in order to get them up and running again so from now on you can follow us on twitter facebook and instagram at tdi h c show. And if you have any enrica fan fiction you'd like to share you can send it my way at this day at iheartmedia dot com thanks to chandler maze for producing the show and thank you for listening. I'll see you back here again tomorrow.

"Be back here Wednesday morning. So you're stuck with me. But also we've got the wonderful Deb Valentine. Molly is in the control room. So is Rob. So we're all we're all jamming today. And you know what time it is. This is one of my favorite times of the day It is on this daytime. Today is September 6th. And on this day September 6 14 92 explorer Christopher Columbus sets out for the new world. From his supply base in the Canary Islands. At the time, the Canaries were ruled by the kingdom of Castile, which is now part of Spain. European explorers continued to use the Canaries, by the way, as kind of a jumping off spot if you will. And on this day September 6 15 22, another Explorer to talk about the Magellan expedition arrives back in Spain, completing the first circumnavigation of the world. Three years earlier, Ferdinand Magellan, who had been appointed admiral of the Spanish fleet by King Charles, the first of Spain, set off with his armada. It was five ships. Hundreds of men all bound for the Spice Islands or what is now Indonesia. The Victoria was the only ship to return after. I mean, obviously, these are explorers and they're discovering the new world basically brutal conditions. I mean, these men went through starvation, scurvy. And the murder of Magellan himself, which killed off much of the passengers. It really wasn't a murder was like a killing because there was a whole deal. But Magellan was killed by a poison arrow after helping achieve on an island in the Philippines fight a rival tribe so he gets pyung with the poison arrow, and he's done. So the exhibition is considered one of the most important events in history, thanks to the science and the socio socioeconomic and political and philosophic and theological information that is gleaned And it brought back to the old world. On this day, September 6 16 28 the first Puritans arrived around Salem, Massachusetts. These were the people who wanted to stay within the Church of England but purify it. Unlike the pilgrims, Unfortunately for the Puritans, King Charles, the first was not keen on purifying the Catholic Church ends of the Church of England, rather and they along with the pilgrims, who stood an outright opposition to the church. Decided to set sail for the new world here in America. Two years later, another group arrived on several different ships. They were led by John Winthrop, who wanted to build a city upon a hill and he did. Today. It's known as Boston. And on this day in 16 51 the future King Charles, the second of England hides all day in an oak tree escaping after his loss against the round heads. Those were the supporters of Oliver Cromwell, who fought against the king and the English several war and on this day in 16 66. Finally, the great fire of London is extinguished. It started just a few days before. I think this was on like The second, I think was Friday. I was telling you about this when it started, But in the end, it destroyed 80% of London, including 13,200 houses 87 churches, including ST Paul's Cathedral. And it displaced more than 70,000 people in the city of 80,000. As I mentioned on Friday, it started at a bakery on Pudding Lane.

"And so we go back. Even further in history with another famous researcher who's been honored internationally for his work on wrecks shipwrecks europeans. Who came here by mistake or accident and sometimes lived through. The horror is dr jeremy green in fremantle. Congratulations on your international award. What's its name. It's the order of the irish missile. Given by the dutch while it was presented to me by ambassador netherlands she came over here and it was the presentation from the king of the netherlands. Obviously the king couldn't come here. A message was sent yes. It was an enormous honor. I'm gonna say the invitation went out to everybody that we are having a book launch and the dutch ambassador come to fremantle a make the presentation and that was going to be a special announcement and we will thought it was going to be founding or legislation and so the book launch went ahead and the ambassador started finished launch. And she said and now you've heard about presentation well it's not bad legislation on. It's not about funding. And she looked at me and she says all you that point just about fell off my chair. Well of course. It was their ships bumping into australia. All the time on their way to the spice islands beck in the seventeenth century. Yes absolutely and the embassy's being very kind to us in sense of supporting a lot of the projects that we did. The batavia is partially restored. Well as an awful lot of it actually here. isn't it. yes it's here in the building. We started excavating it in the seventy one. And it took about three four years of excavation work and then conservation and then rebuilding it in the gallery here in this wonderful shipwrecks museum g. Lots of visitors yes. I mean. we've done very well actually tickly because the when the new museum was being built here about the nine museum closed down and of course the shipwrecks and maritime museum to museums and fremantle were both capterra from that period so we got a lot of visitation up until of course when covid could do tell the story of some of the horrors associated with the batavia the crew the captain zone. Yes really surprising that they've never made a hollywood movie out of it because it's got all the necessary ingredients for it. The ship is wrecked. The sophist get ashore. The captain the command pelser decides with all of the senior offices. Some women and actually are probably infant. Only a few months old. So it would have been born on the voyage. Set out to search for water ostensibly as i couldn't find water on the broncos they sell to the main nine could find and while they were on their way to behavior the notorious jeronimus cornelius to massacre the survivors and quite extraordinary story. And so by the time pell back they killed about a hundred and sixteen hundred and twenty people men women children and it was just fortunate that the final sort of set piece to this was the mutineers. We call mutinies. They're not really is but anyway. These people under the leadership of cornelius were taking a group of soldiers had been isolated from the main party because they were soldiers. They knew what they were doing. And they attacked them and cornelius was captured by the mutineers. And just as things happening passau in the q ship sails into the bike and at that moment the mutineers get into one boat and the leader of the soldiers gets into another boat and they severing rice. Get to the rescue. I and fortunately the commander of soldiers got their first worn pelle. Sort of the thing. Mutinous were captured. Some of them are executed. They will sell back to batavia and there of them for their doom. 'cause many of them executed in batavia. Full the part that they took in the mutiny absolutely extraordinary story. There was a little bit of investigation of a possible link with the crew in landon. Possibly the joined aboriginal. People is still going on those happing settled. Well it's three different dot shipwrecks. That might have had some sort of connection with the aboriginal people. The batavia's relatively unlikely because there was no need to mutineers. They considered too young to minor and they were abandoned on the mainland by pelser on his voyage. Back to batavia but of course there was the old rack in sixteen fifty six. Where a large number of people got to shore and lots of evidence that surviving material on the mainland so they were one group of people and the other of course is this out outta where everybody despoiled. They just disappeared. You know as never heard of again. It's a very tricky story. Because of course he also had people from indonesia coming down with intented labor. And i guess one day. Somebody's going to try. And sort out the dna story but haven't got a few weeks ago inside show. We passed the plans for the sixteen. Sixteen sircar dog the island. Bree militating an awful lot of the natural history. And i think that celebrates one of the oldest collisions overdubbed chip took hotoke collision. Not quite right. 'cause he he actually just arrived and shot by now up a pew to play on cape inscription then sailed off. So he didn't he didn't wreck. Nope i encounter well of course staff can before that but they first recorded evidence of a european on the australian coast is actually dakar talk daft. Can we live from journals that they d go contact on golf cart terrier but a secondary sources not original journal. We sat about sixty nine or something. That's right yes and i think. Some of the recording of that is in the national maritime museum in sydney. Yes yes that's right. Yup what are they play. If you want to visit well close. They have the replica. Of the daphne. Now yes that sabena. Big an area of contention for a lot of west. Australians that you know the ship was built here and this was a group of people to volunteers work on mckinnon and off. It goes to sydney and nothing to do typical. Isn't it. yes well see the other thing about it is i suppose there's always this perennial thing with you know. The captain cook discovered australia. Which is something that you know how long we've been trying to educate the people in these states that the europeans first year pits to discover australia were dutch. Not counting is even the landing buccaneer in sixteen ninety nine. I think yes william damp here as he was the famous william dampier who had all sorts of interesting adventures. How many other wrecks are out there. That you've yet to go search for is or is it impossible now not really. it's an interesting situation. When we started hearing nine hundred seventy one we really get caught. Also reports every year off shipwrecks and gradually numbers being dropping down and finding now the wrexham more in deep water with being found by more complex methods and technologies. But what's interesting about. It is that we know that in westralia from the records research has been done by this department there are about one thousand five hundred shipwrecks that have occurred from newspaper records request circle records some sort we found about two hundred ninety three hundred so it's still quite a lot there but they're going to be very hard to find. So congratulations again on the question. Do you still go out into the field or you comfortable in your wonderful building very comfortable in my wonderful building. I'm not doing so much filbert these days when you're getting close to being eighty it's a certain limitation as to what you can do. We can call you captain nabet. Thank you and congratulations again. Thank you dr. Jeremy green at the shipwreck museum in fremantle now have been wondering how they managed to put that batavia story together for insect work on a massive scale..

I'm not done the candle shop out in Spicewood in a while. I will do that on the next report just for you. God bless you. Currently we're 30 degrees. In the American standard eating weather center the time it's 6 46. Every nerve in the Spice Island. Ugo. Lovely candle shop Right there. 93 W. V. C. Rob Kendall for Tony Cats. Good morning. Thanks for joining us Happy Happy Final week of 2020. Congratulations. You've made it. If you're hearing my voice, you've made it And that in and of itself deserves a round of applause and will be the other All week s Oh, thank you for for spinning with us. Hope you had a very merry Christmas. Very safe Christmas producer Alison doing her usual phenomenal job on the board, and we certainly are pleased to have you with us coming up. A little bit later in the show. We're gonna get back into it. Just what in the world is going on with the city of Fisher's because, of course, a lot of backlash over the just totally arbitrary, unscientific shutdowns The mayor did out there, beginning at 10 P.m. each night through January, the eighth and well. He's apparently trying toe by some of that love back with your own money, and it's a great tale of how politicians operates. We'll get into that. It a little bit, but first yes, President Trump reversing course yesterday signing the stimulus bill. So congratulations, you'll be receiving $600 of your own money that a future generation you will never meet is going to have to pay off and well, darn it. That's a That's the American way people right. I mean, we're talking about this last Thursday on the morning show will get into Different parts of this throughout the show today about the stimulus bill. There's nothing bold. There's nothing noble. There's nothing great About spending other people's money right? And that's what that's what all government does right but especially spending money from people who never have a vote on it, And that's what the federal government does every time they spend a dollar. Because we are more than 27 Trillion. Now, soon to be what'll be almost 28 a half trillion dollars in debt when we attack on the new 900 billion Think about that. Think that is what these people in Washington do Every single day. They spend money that the people who will have to pay for it. Never get to say it. It's the equivalent of robbing a bank. Right? I mean, we talked about this when? When Governor lockdown. McGee up of the road here came out with his teacher Pay committee came out with the recommendation and one of their major recommendations. Assault teacher pay was well, everyone, just as for referendums Just go to your community and ask for referendums. One the the idea that you had two years to figure this out, and that's that's what you came up with is just just take more money from people that just laziness. I mean, this is ridiculous and shows how ridiculous these commissions are. But I said at the time, it's the equivalent of going to a community and attempting to rob a bank. That's what you're doing. There's no creativity and that there's no innovation and that that's stealing that's stealing. It's forced theft from the taxpayers by government, and it's the same thing here. And at the federal level, it's 100 times. Worse. There's no innovation. There's no creativity. There's no thinking outside of the box. What they're doing here is printing money and forcing future generations who have no say in it. To pay for it. It's gross, at least at the state level. You have a say in these idiots, and if you want to keep voting for him, and if you want to keep us we do here in Indiana, just blindly voting for someone because they have an R next to her name. Even they don't even though they don't govern anything like a conservative or anything like what a Republican professes to be. Well, then that's on us. You get the government you deserve. But in the case of the federal government and just blindly printing another $900 billion People we will never meet are going to have to pay for that. And that is a complete dereliction of duty. It's a complete abdication of responsibility. And there's nothing noble about it right. You're you're going to hear and you'll continue to hear people like Todd Young and people like Mike Bronner's are U S senators and people like Jim Baird, US House rapping, and I'm sure all the house reps will say it other than banks and Hollingsworth. You were the only two to vote for against it, and by the way, by the way, If Jim Banks If you are hearing our voice, he heard her voice all over the state. So if you hear hearing our voice and Jim Banks or Trey Hollingsworth banks up up in the area of near Fort Wayne and Hollingsworth south near Jeffersonville, if they're your U. S rep, call them and say thank you. Call them and say thank you because not only are the only the only people in this state and federal level who care about your money, they're the only people care about your kids Money and your grandkids, Money and generations. Seven generations now be paying this back. So call them at least say thank you for doing the right thing. But this is what we do, right. We're going to hear the the praise from people all Thank God. These senators voted for this and business owners are gonna get this money that they desperately need. Well, that's not wrong that business owners desperately need this money. But the only reason business owners desperately need this money is because states shut down businesses and that federal government throughout the whole process people like Todd Young and Mike Braun and these nine other or the seven other U. S reps in the state of Indiana State for Young and Hollingsworth haven't cheerleading at the whole time. No, but you're letting it the whole time about banks and Hollingsworth. I'm sorry. I mean, think about during the election. Todd Young was out campaigning for Eric Holcomb. Eric Holcomb did immense damage the governor of the state of Indiana to businesses. He created billions literally billions of dollars of economic calamity and Todd Young came out and said Eric Holcomb's great You should vote for him. That's right. That's how we do things. Well, then Todd Young wants you to think he's noble because he printed $900 billion of new money that you're gonna have to pay for that future generations are gonna have to pay for this is the way this whole thing works. It's a big scam. It's a big ruse. These people are using other people's money who never have a say to buy your support, and they want you to think they're great. There's nothing great about it at all. There's nothing noble about it at all. There's something likable about it at all. It's gross, and at some point he's talked about this last Thursday. Before we went, we went to Christmas break 79% of the U. S debt. Is it owned by China isn't out by another foreign government. It's held by us. So when the whole thing tumbles over, you know who's gonna be left holding the bag. You You're going to be left holding the bag. You're the one will be defaulted on and you're not going to think it's so great or noble or honorable. Then these politicians must stop printing money and if they want to do programs like coronavirus relief Cut spending elsewhere. 93. W I. B. C Rob Kendall in for Tony Cats, Let's send it over to Matt Bear with a look at traffic. All right, I'm taking a look. Market street still close going to be for another year Market Street.

"That it it's made it's changed people's mindsets or it's pushed movements into certain ways people can agree with me or not. But I feel that it might be one of those catalogues moments that that helped change and who knows maybe we're going through another, you know Resurgence or a new movement because pots legalized now and then we go into film until Christmas take me down take me on a journey. Well, my the funny thing that I always look at film and television, so when you think of of someone who smokes weed not now dead, Back in the day. What did you think? Oh, I I'm going to sound like an ass know. It's just it's a concept though. I thought I've people who smoke weed. I thought of it as lazy young white guys with bad skin. Who were I just thought of like I thought about the classic Stoner, right? But truthfully the Stoners now, I look at it. And I'm like the Stoners were the ones that pushed it through the Stoners were the ones that were they were our modern hippies who were Fearless they were the ones the kind of brought it to everybody's Consciousness, but the only thing was that our own biases that you know, made us think those people were less than or they weren't as smart, which is absolutely not true back in the day you had this Stoner mentality that they were dumb they were lazy they were uneducated job. This concept of the stoner was always really negative and it was really negatively it was it was really really negative and then it start right and it doesn't mean it's right but that was the media and that's who filmed traded. We had that 70 show that had you know, you had the we'd circled Cheech and Chong still chamma chamma them had that mentality they played off it which is not a bad thing. It was totally a stereotype that was created around but everybody accepted it and the stoner did bring it in but it was always played as this kind of guy that didn't really give a crap in context. So you had all these movie references. But now when you look at people when we look at pod that is not even on T anymore that that stereotype is gone. I wonder when that little shift happened and it started I would imagine with parts of parts of states and countries like Canada being legalized that mentality shift so we had things like there's movies for example in Ted I'm going to show you this one because Ted's like one of those great movies loved head and and it's so funny.

"The aroma was pure and powerful enough to range far from the tree when they saw the fine logs that we had selected and carried through their settlement. The people of the Island Open their eyes wide and stuck their tongues out and astonishment referring to our achievement. The locals told us that we were the true soldiers of the heavenly court, and that our prowess was all inspiring like that of the colts. Now, Gary what does that little story? Tell us about showing he's methods. Well, he was more than just an armchair trader. He really wanted his sailors and merchants to have firsthand experience of the origin point of some of these spices. In this case a tree that's infested with fungi that was called the stinking and censor the heavy incense. And so he really felt something that many traders around the world. Later assumed as part of their practice, and that's it you had to know the quality of the spice in its place of origin. There was a bit. A twist though to the Shanghai am story that we just heard there was ecological damage caused basically. That's right. I mean, this was quite a bit of deforestation in some places, and that a garwood incense has been so depleted that now it's considered a threatening endangered species by the international union for the cancer version of nature an engine you've found that there was some spices. That are very hard to locate. I think the fact of the matter is that some spices are used in certain regions by certain people. And then actually you hear about these great dishes, and unless you go there, you don't really get to experience them. Well, I was in Delhi over a decade ago. And I was cooking with the chef and he took out the lich in. So it literally is a little bit of moss type thing that grows on stone in Hindi, they call it. But the carpool which is the flower of of the stone, and it looks like a little dried up gray bit of moss. Really looks like nothing. But then he added it to the curry just a little bit. And because I recognize all the other spices. You can just taste this amazing earthy nece that you've never tasted another spice. I think there's lots of little gems of spices around still that part of the world that we're talking about which locals will use an odd things which may be haven't really disseminated to the rest of the world. Not so easy to find not commercially viable, but equally beautiful in delicious. Now, Gary has mentioned that the Chinese role in the spice trade, and Chris you also say it's important to stress that the Dutch for their punt didn't actually dominate the whole of Asia because of the spice trade, they in fact, there are many countries too strong for them. Yes. So these big am buyers such as China, but also the empire, although that started disintegrating in the eighteenth century, they were so powerful that they could resist claims of these European trader so they didn't have access to these markets, and neither did they control the trade to these areas, which was often left to people of India and China itself, and then the English also then muscled in on the trade while they try to, but they remaining successful in the pepper trade and not so much in the small spices that bef seen as the Dutchmen's to wrest control of those small spices, and it was mainly due because they were only available in such a small part of the world at that moment in time. That they were able to do that. There were the Anglo Dutch wars, which then happen in which the English regained possession of an Indonesian spice island called Rune and in the subsequent peace treaty. This spice island was given to the Dutch in exchange for their territory in the Americas called new Amsterdam, which then became New York and the rest is history. So to speak, Chris just quit one was a good dealer a bad deal for the Dutch. Would you say pianist would make you think new Amsterdam new Amsterdam has the same kind of like ring to it? Thank Sinatra could have because there's some that. I think you should actually swing that around and say, probably in New York wouldn't have become the place. It is today. Even have I been new Amsterdam, very good Touche. And in what we really do as well. Now, Chris is the end of Dutch domination of the spice trade what else propelled that. Would. You say I think there's two things that propelled it first of all the Dutch lost their power to control these areas. So the English are moving into these areas made because they're interested in Chinese market, and at the same time people started transplanting, these plans, it's only when you have control of these islands, and you keep the plans there that you can have a monopoly the dark want to keep those spices there, but they're not able to do that. And it's not an English person who takes those plants out of that environment is start planting than miles away on a Mauritius on husker. But as a French person who is actually called voire which is pepper, which is very strange exiting of history. He takes those plants, and he takes them away to other parts starts transplanting, but these are just a small this mall. Spices that were many. Talking about also made it much more available today. Too many more people than they were before Gary we're getting down to the present day. And and obviously the spice trade has changed an awful lot over the years. The do you think there was still some similarities? Yes. I think we appreciate now what has been hidden from people all around the world that this spice Geri did bring us together. We see the connections across oceans and continents. And yet those economic processes are still embedded in all of this. This is an extractive industry the harvesters for these spices such as Franken sensor, not make probably gained one thousand at best of the retail value of the spices. So it's interesting paradox at one point it brings us together. And we we share these globalised foods chili peppers, and the nutmeg said the all spices all in the same dish. And at another level. It's been romanticized in a way where we don't really talk much about that extractive imperialism that is in. Errant in spice trade, but basically the middle men still people still get rich and the produces quite often get squeezed. That's right. Right. Finally, I'm looking forward to Justice show that spices are still as addictive as ever will you demonstrate to us. And Jim how a simple ingredients like yoga can be spiced up as it were. Gary, sadly, you're not with us in the studio. You'll have to do it. What I would call a similar taste sorry about that. But let's see what can be weeping over just crying that are not there with you in the studio. I'm sure you could replicate this somehow but heavy plastic of yoga engine. Yes. I've got a plastic container of yogurt said this is a really popular north Indian Gujarati desert, call chic on which is just simply flavored yogurt and some people have it with their meal, and some people would have does that. And we're just by sticking up with to really delicious spices that are actually very expensive in India. So that's also one of those things that you have guests over and you show them your best foot forward. Right. So you use expensive spices. So we've got some green Cardamom powder, and that just goes in and I've added like a coffee tea spoons were and then in here other container. I have some saffron. So, you know, I love you the best of the bags which I've just reduced in some milk. So this is a really beautiful kind of ochre colored milk right now with the saffron strands in it. So that goes in. Yeah. And then we'll just mix it together. And it's as simple as that, you take something which is like you said, everyone has in the kitchen and you slice it up and make it special. Yeah. It's completely different from Greek just a little bit of spice, and it's fed ex post that I. Well, we have a whole top here. Gary we're going to send it to you right now. Okay. Should hit you by the end of today. Beautiful thing about this. Is it just shows? You actually, what's how could we've got to spices in here. And it's totally changed. What we perceive to be like. That is for me, the beauty of spices. Something really little and small can completely transform as it has clearly by this conversation the entire world and history by south of it. What a perfect way to end the program. Many thanks to all three of you. And Jim.

"What did you learn with drone delivery Imola answer? We learned quite a lot here. It's warm. It's heat. The drones definitely need to be able to deal with that in the proper way. It's also limited connectivity. Three Jason bit limited. It's on and off. So you need to have a backup support we rapidly become east to the idea of east Africa becoming something of a hub for drain delivery, and sort of leading the way and one of the key parts of that is the Malawi drone corridor. Yes. So the Molly humanitarian drone corridor is an initiative by the melodic government, and UNICEF and the reason for the car door is to be able to test drones. Technology for both cargo mapping and connectivity. And for the Malawi government, a UNICEF to be able to see these technologies operating in real life circumstances that goal is to be able to integrate the technology into ongoing operations and youth. One one of these contracts to actually map cholera outbreaks. How do you go about mapping cholera? Basically what we're doing is that we are from the mapping where there's water on the ground where there are latrines. If there are thatched juice, for example, it's more likely Tabah somewhat more poor sanitation conditions than there. So more high risk zone for Colorado, and we've been able to apply also visual image recognition. So we can detect these picks automatically. So within minutes. We can have pinpointed out where are the latrines whereas water and so forth. You've talked about humanitarian uses of drones does your company have plans for more commercial exploitation of them. Yeah. I think that's important because I think at the end of the day you also need to look at look at ecosystem. I mean, if the drones are going somewhere for one reason, it could potentially also support. Parts of the infrastructure and the economic ecosystem. So to say, I think our core will be to to still focus on the global health needs. But also debatable to build ecosystem around during said that he works in an economical way. That's some CEO from a lot of Tanzania's experience with James comes from another. Well, thanks. Projects mapping initiative by the spice islands were surveyed and mapped in detail by students and others. It created a highly skilled workforce some of them have now moved on to other commercial projects. This is key for the African drain industry. Use of site is one graduate of the Zanzibar mapping initiative. One of the things that people want to make happen here. In Tanzania is that local people are trained to open a skill to become drain pilot. So I'm interested to know from you how what's happened to you since sans bar? I think now I'm giving training not only in Tanzania also walking with Tanzania flame loves and this is one of the labs available now networks next week. I'm going to Lasota to give a training when we were initiating designs by mapping project. The only thing which I was looking for is the inheritance of the lodge from the expertise. To the US in vans. But if disaster mapping initiative didn't train designs about themselves to do the work. It will never be successful. Because why they know they vitamin then on how to speak with the papers because we had to go to the community engagement and stuff. So they know that time of waking up they they know their culture. And now they're giving others that trending on what they have learned. I'm proud of it. Of course, I had my sisters as what brought to see them. Now, they can go away, and they can contribute to this drunk community at the one. And now we can take it to the next step. And now we see we have Lake Victoria challenge. My name is Laker Tinky Gaetana. I'm with the Tanzania flying labs, and I am the managing director. We're trying to build the robotics capacity in Tanzania eastern central Africa as well as being the flagship flying labs in this region simultaneously. We're also developing the ecosystem by having for example, drone repair centers. And the most important thing that we're doing is. We're developing use cases stretching from disaster-management all the way to agriculture as a way of proving the viability and essentially the workflows combined with our drone incubation program where we are. Are essentially incubating individuals and companies that want to provide drones as a service company, we incubated last year called agree. Info there specializing in drones for agriculture. How important is it to manufacture the parts for drains, but also eventually the drains themselves locally here. And what's required for that to become a reality? That is very very important. And that is going to be one of the crucial things that we're going to be doing at the Tanzania flying labs is we're going to have a certified repair center right here in Tanzania most likely in Dar-es-Salaam, it's very important because depending on the type of terrain, depending on certain mishaps that just might happen. During a flight mission. You might break wings, you might do damage to the propellers. You don't want to end up in a situation where you're asking people in Switzerland to ship these parts to you all the time. It gets very expensive very fast. So we are looking at being able to for example, three d print awesome. These parts this needs to be signed off by the manufacturer. So that the warranties can be maintained. It's very important that that that capability is present in Tanzania say what could we expect from the technology enthusiasts of Tanzania in the next few years. Drones are not only very useful from a practical point of view from an infrastructure point of view, but they're very inspiring to the youth Boyer and the rest of the drone companies here would agreed on one point that for it to benefit Tanzania fully the drones have to be constructed and repaired locally. And then we cannot only use them as a tool, which is made outside of Africa. But we have to do as much as we can to encourage the youth to see this as a potential career path where they could actually do something.

"But only two percents of the world's road vehicles and the ferries a not much safer. So if you can send something unmanned it it removes that risk. You can also send it in nighttime, conditions or in bad weather conditions. Tanzania has already used trains per survey and mapping and the World Bank's Zanzibar mapping initiative. Created a highly skill set of drone pilots on the spice islands, but I'll go drain deliveries are still new. Technology may apply globally. We think that in Africa the market may develop differently by analogy with other leapfrogging opportunities like mobile phones over land lines. We have very limited landline infrastructure. Everybody goes straight to mobile phones and the region is the densest populated rural part of the world. So we think that if these markets for drones and Africa will develop differently probably east Africa and probably the lake region will be the first economies to see that happen because of the density of of demand, the youthfulness of that demographic investment, the fact is a lot of cash activities economy and exports going on. We traveled to the region for a trial of something called the Lake Victoria challenge. The eventual aim is to see partnership between commercial Jane companies and humanitarian and government agencies. Hi, I'm Fredrick. Tanzanian? It's definitely a place where technology could take off. And over the years. There have been many different technologies of common people have said. Yeah, this is going to be revolutionary for Africa. A lot of things have to fall into place before that actually happens in a sense. For me. My company is is almost a litmus test as to whether drones are going to succeed in in Africa. If they are gonna succeed they have to go beyond the donor project. They have to be something which people can get into and Bill businesses with. So for example, relapses attempting to do drone survey in a commercial level, but also supplement that with community works. There has to be a good viable business case, what could that business case be one of the very scary statistics out there right now is only three percent of Africa is mapped to a local scale. If we don't know where I land is our land is not titled, then we're not getting the value out of it that we need to be getting so one of those in need, you use cases is bronze for survey. But again, then too. Compliment that with extremely high paying survey jobs, for example, the mining sector that moment Freddie's train of thought was interrupted by Tanzania's head of civil aviation. Joe haris? More from fatty in a bit. We asked Hamza what he's doing to make sure Tanzania's airspace is safe. We wake with the forty days like Tanzania people's defence force and also Tanzania intelligence services unit. It's like somebody in his house. You open the window to get fresh air some things you can get insects mosquitoes coming. So you have to make sure that you have a mechanism that you get only fresh air. There were no one now. The low fool. DVD's? So that's why we have to regulate we have to get through radius security agency the purpose of opposite. Jim island was to see a drone world theft. Adrain being float out of the line of the pilot site with monitoring this movements passing to the nearby air. Traffic control in the wound to add. So I am sitting on a speed bait on the banks of Lake Victoria. And we are about to launch off later Adrain. We'll be doing the same journey. I will say he says best wallet drain takes around twenty minutes to fly to Jima. We were on the fosters currently available Trump's option and on our journey.

And how do you see that working out in future is going to be easy for communities all remotely Lund's? She'd be in charge of their own jobs. I think that is absolutely critically important. It should not be that if a drone is purchased. It has to go back to the originating country to be repaired. Also, traveling with us with Jonathan lectured. He used to be the economist Africa correspondent, and if now very involved in drains in the region is Redline reports to build cargo drone lines and drone ports. Professor.

That's always fascinated me about Italian food is how most Italian food tastes better the second day than it does the first day with one big exception that being pizza. That's because you have to reheat pizza most of us. Do it in the microwave and the microwave is no friend to pizza. It turns the cross Soghi. And if you don't watch it carefully. It will just vaporize all the toppings on the pizza. Of course, you can always heat pizza up in the oven. But that takes forever. Another very effective way is to heat the pizza in a frying pan. It's a little faster than the oven. If you put it in a frying pan on low heat and cover the pan, which makes a little mini oven in there, and it heats up pretty nicely and keeps the crust, crunchy. But if you do need to use the microwave to reheat your pizza, here's a little trick. You put a glass of water in the microwave next to the pizza. The water absorbs some of the excess radiation and helps keep the crust crunchy. And that is something you should know. And that's it for today. I'm Mike Carruthers. Thanks for listening to something, you should know..
