Biden Administration Will Not Require COVID-19 Vaccine Passports, White House Says
"Proof will be required for entry. But while schools and businesses may want some documentation, the idea of a vaccine passport is not going to be mandated by the federal government, at least, according to White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki. The government is not Now, nor will we be supporting system that requires Americans to carry a credential. There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination. Credential. She did say their concern was with protecting Americans. Privacy colleges like Rutgers, Duke Brown Cornell are requiring students to get vaccinated. Cruise lines like Norwegian and American Queen Steamboat will require all guests and staff to be vaccinated. The MBA announced last week, a partnership with a comedy called Clear, which has developed a health pass AP Clear says it offers covert symptoms surveys but also a way to store test and vaccine data. The Miami Heat has started allowing fully vaccinated people who can prove it. Sit in two sections closer to the court. They still have to wear masks. Last week, the Mets announced they'd also be using clears health passed to confirm a fan's negative covert tests before game attendance. MGM Resorts is also partnering with clear, as is Las Vegas Sands Corporation. And, of course, as you might imagine, the airlines are considering all of this to their trade group. The IA Thia says they've been working on a travel pass. Different countries have different covert restrictions before entering. And while New York was the first state to create a so called vaccine passport with the Excelsior past other states are interested. Hawaii is partnering with clear and the Commons Project Foundation on digital vaccine authentication. IBM is also working on a digital health past using Blockchain technology. So is all of this A good idea. Is it legal? Should we be calling this
Who Will Be Banned From Cruising When Restarts?
"Unwittingly and very easily added to that crews ban list crews boundless that has got longer due to post pandemic cruising rules. I'm gary bambridge. And i'm going to share with you. The nine ways you can be banned from cruising. Let's start with three new bands that will apply basically because of all the post pandemic cruising rules not having a code. Vaccination will like it or not mean. You're likely to be banned from some. If not eventually all almost cruising although it still evolving your light banned from cruising without a vaccine in the following situations first of all you want to work as crew on the ship or even work as guest speaker entertainer or even talk guide. More lines are making this a condition of employment with royal carribean group norwegian cruise groups. One lennick victory and american steamboat. Already saying that this is going to be the case and other lines are actively discussing it. Secondly if you want to cruise lines that have made a requirement for passes so far that includes at the time of according crystal cruises saga cruises american steamboat and victory cruz. Who have an older passenger profile. No-doubt more cruise lines will follow. Thirdly if you're cruise 'cause on any country that requires a vaccination as a condition of entry. This in my view is inevitable and this is going to become much more widespread in cruising. We're seeing many countries in the european area like greece spain and cyprus there pushing for all of the eu to adopt the rule. They already put in place to allow people in without containing and putting no limits on exploring if you've had a vaccine linked to that irrespective of what happens on vaccines cova. Testing is a key part of the returned crews protocols and looks like it will be that for a while. You will be bad if you test positive before boarding of course but also importantly you will also be banned from cruising if you've been in close contact with anyone testing positive for fourteen days before the crews and that's according to various updated crews contracts that i've read and seen so far another new band has come into place through the return to cruise protocols where lies are building into the cruise terms conditions and contracts. The right that they can ban anyone who breaks any of the new guidelines and rules that are being put in place. You agree to these rules. When you book your cruise you ultimately agree to the cruise contracts so for example in the carribean cruise contract. It now says the following quote this any non-compliance by passenger or members of passengers traveling party with carriers coveting policies and procedures shall be grounds for refusal to board refusal to re board after going ashore. Quarantine onboard the vessel disembarkation reporting to cover mental or health authorities or steps deemed necessary so pretty strong ruling. So if you don't wear masks for example you're not honest in the health. Screenings you wander off the cruise line excursions. Your refused to go and do the onboard temperature checks or testing maintaining social distancing steam to the capacity limited venues staying current cavern of asked to do so. And all those kind of things you will be banned and without compensation so now. Let's look at the six other reasons beyond those new rules. We could find yourself subject to accrues ban. Now you can't be banned for simply the wrong age i will. There are a number of adult only cruise lines which banned travelers that are basically two young which is unusual but true so for example saga cruises requires their passengers to be over. Fifty years of age virgin voyagers required guests to be over eighteen and pino crews has some ships for example in their fleet that early open to of eighteenth and so on secondly lines actually banned people under eighteen or twenty one out of the us and canada travelling without an adult now. There are some exceptions to this. So for example. If you're a couple and your age sixteen eighteen or sixteen to twenty one in the case of the united states are married and could prove it when booking. You're allowed to travel or in fact if you're under eighteen or twenty-one and in the military you're able to travel without an adult is also with noting that most lines banned under eighteen hundred twenty once again in the us from sharing a cab with someone also under those ages and the way you get around. That is the adults. You have to be an adjoining cabin next door or right across the hall lines also banned people under eighteen again under twenty one from the. Us her not traveling with their parents or legal guardian without any sort of written permission and also have been banned from taking part in cruises in the us which are quite the cdc as part of their framework for return of cruising but again. That's kind of a bit of an exception now. Thirdly although it varies a little bit byline many band babies age six months or less for shorter cruises and the sheet increases to twelve months or longer for exotic cruises like transatlantic crossings sending any crews. That has three or more consecutive days. Bands kids twelve months or younger in a really obvious one and not surprisingly if you create trouble act in a dangerous way. Break the law or threaten or abuse a crew. You will also be banned by the line and for life. So for example there have been passes. Who'd been trying to create crazy social media viral shots by doing stupid things like climbing of railings. Climb between cabins. They've been banned for life or carribean australian group. Mass brawl on carnival. They were disembarked and they banned for life passes have even been bad after being caught mugging drugs on the ships and other kinds of tax so basically being bad being causing trouble you will be banned one thing. I haven't been able to find out though is if the lion's share that information and if you're then banned by everyone will just that line. Pregnant women are also on the banned list. Anyone who enters a twenty four weeks of pregnancy during the cruise is also bad and this is because the medical team to have no expertise in pregnancy and childbirth however. The band does not always apply for river cruising. So if you are getting later your pregnancy or we'll be late in your pregnancy and your decrease that could be an option. This of course is because river. Cruise ships are always close to medical care and hospitals. The lines also hold the rights and their contracts to deny boarding and banu if you try and bring a pretty wide range of items on board so that includes recreation drugs guns stun devices knives explosive devices swords or the ultimate could be used as a weapon fireworks drones hover boards balloons and it goes on and on but in practice other than for illegal items like recreational drugs. The lies are more like confiscate them. And hold them until the end of the cruise. But beware backpacking choices particularly recreational drugs. Could have you banned. The cruise lines have pretty few bands or exclusions for medical conditions and they are able to accommodate most with notice although they do say in the contracts. And i'm going to quote this. You must ensure that you are medically and physically fit for travel and that such traveling will not endanger yourself or anyone else so you do need to check before boarding as they may required to do things like higher cookman cabin if you need any own let you travel with all bring a carrot assist you and some also restrict or limit support dogs other than guides visually impaired guests. So it's a bit of a mindful that you need to check around the cruise contracts. Say things again. On a quote this guess affected by a disability or medical condition must be self sufficient or travel with someone you can provide all the necessary assistance. So if you can't do that you will be banned

In the Weirdest Ski Season Ever, Big Resorts are Booming
"About this time of year most years a lot of people start dreaming about their upcoming ski trips but this year is possibly the weirdest year ever for skiers and snowboarders last year marked a turning point in which two giant conglomerates took over the ski industry in two thousand eighteen. Colorado private equity firm called k. s. l. partners got together with another investor and launch the multibillion dollar altera mountain company altera snapped up big-name resorts including steamboat springs mammoth resorts in california and deer valley resorts l. Terrorism enormous rival vail resorts went on a buying spree to last year. Veil the biggest ski resort company in north america continued scouring the country for acquisitions the bottom line.

At sixty nine different global resorts alturas icon. Got you into forty-one resorts from colorado steamboat. Ski resort to switzerland zermatt. The numbers climbed even higher. During the two thousand twenty ski season their strategies aggressive acquisitions and virtual multi mountain season passes allowed the to dominate the industry. If you're a ski company mogul the financial future. Looked amazing notice. I use the past tense. There there's not an industry exact who saw cove at nineteen coming or how it would devastate the industry last march. More than ninety percent of america's resort shut their doors abruptly as a whole. The industry lost about two billion dollars. According to the national ski areas association veils fiscal twenty. Twenty revenues fell thirty percent. Altera is privately owned but likely to affect the same pain so you might assume that. The outlook is pretty dark this season. Well you might be wrong. At production time vale. Stock price was close to a record high. Almost two hundred eighty dollars a share. That seems head-spinning. On the one hand you have an industry that relies on traveling and gathering together in a year when both restricted but so far the outlook for vail tara is far from that of a year without snow. Sales avail season passes of already surged twenty percent this year reports the colorado sons jason blevins. Why with indoor activities.

Ski passes as a way to make sales all year long and take a little of the sting out of paying the lift ticket window but now a season pass has become almost essential for snow lovers. If you don't have one you might not ski at all and even if you do you'll have to reserve your trip ahead of time. Once you're there the experience will be very different. Not surprisingly you'll have to social distance in lift lines at some resorts. You won't be allowed on a lift or gondola with anyone. But the companions you came with most indoor dining in bars or closed you may have to reserve a parking space and the resorts would prefer that you steal a day off mid week and skip that weekend skiing. These safety precautions are designed to keep ski resorts open and keep skiers and snowboarders lining up with their boots keys and wallet. If cova cases start climbing near your favourite mountain though it could all change overnight in the meantime we have a few words of wisdom for you. The intrepid skier be patient.

Southwest Airlines Pushes to Expand Amid Pandemic Pressures
"The pandemic has devastated demand for air travel in response. Many airlines have pulled back offering fewer flights cutting jobs and rewriting the route maps yet. During all of this upheaval one carrier stands out. Southwest airlines is taking aggressive steps to expand. It's a high stakes gamble but southwest is betting. It'll help the company emerged from the pandemic stronger than before. Let's take a look at the company. Strategy and wide sky competitor's talking with the journals ala's insider who covers the airline industry for us. Hi allison it's always good to have you here. Thanks for having me so. Allison we should be clear. Southwest is facing plenty of struggles revenue in the third. Quarter is down. It's burning cash and it still dealing with the seven. Three seven max which won't return to service for a while yet but at the same time it's adding cities like palm springs. California steamboat springs colorado. It's also moving into big airports like chicago. O'hare is well. how can this be. yes definitely. there's no airline that has really escaped. The devastating impact of the pandemic and south west is no exception on track to lose money this year. You know really for the first time in in other breaking a forty seven year streak. It's a huge deal for the company. And they're talking about and seriously considering furloughs also for the first time in their history so you know. This is really unprecedented for them. But the strategy of being opportunistic a downturn. That's not that's not unusual for them. That's something they've done time and again in the past in sort of how they've grown throughout their history so in some ways it's it's not surprising to see them doing that again. Okay let's get into specifics. What's the strategy. What opportunity does southwest see here how they explained it was that the way their network is now. They have multiple flights day all of these cities. And that's been you know offering. That kind of schedule is sort of a big advantage for them but now that demand is down so much they just don't need to be offering five six seven flights a day in some of these places so they it means they have extra planes in extra people they need to deploy somewhere else so they sort of looked all over the country in thought like work and we really quickly move. That would kind of help bring in revenue right away for us. And that's how they picked some of these new cities as you mentioned. Southwest may break its profitability streak yet. It does have a lot of things working in its favor. It has less debt and lower costs compared to its rivals southwest. It's hard to say. Any airline is well positioned right now but southwest came into this crisis with a lot of advantages and they had a lot less debt than some of their biggest rivals so even though they've taken on a lot of debt during the pandemic they still they still have more cash than debt which is pretty rare position to be in for an and that's something that sort of gives them a little bit of a cushion and a little bit of flexibility to try things or the rivals like spirit and allegiant watching they offer low fares and find opportunities at empty your airports and is this. A big risk for south west. I was definitely watching. United executive sort of said at o'hare you know. They said we have the high grounds and they're not too worried from from what they said. But you know there are so few people traveling right now in the recovery expected to be so rocky. I i really think airlines are just competing over every passenger one. Great example of that is how the big airlines like united and american delta. Have done away with cheney's or most domestic changes. Anyway you know. That was a huge selling point for south west for years. So that's something that's going to make the competition even more heated. So what could that mean for travelers more options more competitive fares. Yes i mean over the course of its history. Southwest going into a market often brought fares down significantly and sort of got new people brought new people into traveling and something that the department of transportation once called the southwest effect. So i always tends to increase competition and bring down fares when a new entrant jumps into a market alison insider covers the airline industry for the wall street journal. Allison thanks so

Courthouse virginia eight days. Before on april. Fifteenth abraham lincoln was assassinated while there were still some confederate troops in the field for the most part. The country was transitioning from a wartime state. To one of peace soldiers. Were returning back to their homes and prisoners of war. Were being released in the town of vicksburg in what was considered the western front of the civil war a large group of union. Pow's who had been released were waiting for transportation to return home. Many of them had spent years in such notorious facilities as andersonville georgia or alabama. The conditions at andersonville were so bad that the camp commander captain henry words was one of the few confederates executed for war crimes. At the end of the civil war. The story will probably be its own episode in the future. The federal government had issued contracts to steamboats on the mississippi river for the transportation of union soldiers. Up the river back to their homes. The officer in charge of transporting the troops in vicksburg was army. Captain george williams. He was concerned. That many of the steamboat captains were bribing union officers to get the lucrative passengers. The government was paying two dollars and seventy five cents per enlisted man and eight dollars per to each steamboat which was far above the normal passenger fares. At that time williams made the snap decision that all of the troops waiting for transportation over two thousand of them would sail on a ship called the sultana. The sultana was a steamboat that was in vicksburg to get repairs. Done on one of its boilers. It had a capacity of three hundred seventy six passengers. Which is much much less than the two thousand people that were about to board it in order to deliver the two thousand passengers and all the money that came with it. The captain of the sultana j. cast mason got its boiler patched rather than undergoing a more costly and lengthy repair which wouldn't have allowed him to take the assignment. The patch was thinner.

When Eleanor realized that her college refused to give degrees to female students, she took matters into her own hands. He joined a group of women called the steamboat ladies who sailed to Dublin. To get honorary degrees from Trinity College. After graduating eleanor worked alongside her father investigating the working conditions of Industrial Liverpool. After his death eleanor continued her work in the city she volunteered for the Liverpool central relief, society where she dedicated her time to helping families in poverty, improve and change their living conditions in the eighteen nineties. Eleanor became a supporter of the women's rights movement, which she saw as integral to widespread social reform. Eighteen ninety five, she was appointed secretary at the Liverpool Women's suffrage society as well as the women's Industrial Council. Eleanor didn't agree with radical tactics to promote women's suffrage and instead pushed a more moderate approach in nineteen. Oh six, the Liverpool City Council Open. It's elective positions. Two women in nineteen o nine eleanor ran and was elected as an independent candidate a position she held until nineteen, thirty five. In nineteen thirteen, she co founded the Liverpool Women Citizens Organization to promote the involvement of women in politics. When World War One broke out eleanor organized association to help wives and other dependents. She continued that work when soldiers returned home, she saw mothers were struggling to provide for families and advocated for the installment of a family wage system. This method would pay family allowances directly to mothers, helping them to support their children and simultaneously fighting against the notion that men had to be the breadwinners. In nineteen eighteen at the end of World War, one British women over the age of thirty. Got The right to vote that same year eleanor established the nineteen eighteen club the following year eleanor became president of the National Union of Women's suffrage societies. And renamed it the National Union of Societies for equal citizenship in Nineteen, twenty, two eleanor ran for British parliament. She lost that year but was elected in nineteen twenty nine as an independent member for the combined English universities. She was one of the first women to hold a position in parliament. There Eleanor continued her lifelong activism in her first speech. She criticized British colonial ISM, and it's anti-feminism. She specifically called out the inhumane practice of female genital mutilation in Kenya. As. The Great Depression loomed she campaigned for the People's rights to cheaper milk and better benefits for dependents of the unemployed. Eleanor was also one of the first politicians to warn of the danger of fascist uprisings across Europe. She spoke candidly about her disappointment in British neutrality concerning politics in Germany Spain Italy and Czechoslovakia. She joined a nonsectarian anti-nazi council to support human rights and set up a parliamentary committee that took up individual refugee cases throughout the war at one point eleanor allegedly tried to charter a ship to cross the blockade of Spain Rescue Republicans from the country. Later, in the early nineteen forties, eleanor devoted resources to get an Jewish people out of Poland. In nineteen forty-five eleanor finally saw her fight for family allowances put into law by the Labor Party with the Family Allowance Act. However it was initially passed on the stipulation the allowance be paid to fathers rather than the mother she fought for. Eleanor's rage was short-lived. The bill was contested by many women in parliament and was amended within the year to be paid to mothers. Eleanor died suddenly of a heart attack on January second nineteen forty-six. Forty years later, a blue plaque is dedicated to her by the Greater London Council at her former residents. It calls her the pioneer of family allowances.

"To Joe. I'm a big tray Gowdy fan and I'm also a big Stephen Moore economists extraordinary Trump advisor. All around. Smart guy. Never afraid to say something crazy on television that then becomes a thing on the Internet. Even more. Welcome back to the show friend Mandy. Great to be with you. By the way. Guess where I'm going to be tonight. Are you coming out to the Steamboat Springs thing? No, that was second on my I was the first thing I wished was was going to the White House tonight to see the president. Give this big speech that Wow, That's cool. Be kind of fun. Yeah, that's really cool. But do me a favor. You too. Please wear a mask so MSNBC won't have to talk about people not wearing masks because they don't have anything else to say about the RNC. Yeah, And I also look to the back of my head. I'll pull down my year I'll do a little shout out to you. That would be awesome. All Arcaro Vernet, I love that. You know, we're going exactly. Yeah, this T Mose brings event is this weekend and I'm going Psalm issue this year. Oh, this is the big conservative conference they have here there. Yeah, And so I've been to about I've probably been to about six or seven of those in my lifetime. And I go about every other year. I was there last I'm kind of bummed out what? I'm gonna miss it. Actually, that should be really, really a fun. It's always a great great for people who haven't signed up yet. They do a fantastic job. Yeah, and they've had to. They had to move it out of steam boat this year because Route County would not work with him. They would not work yet. It's in Beaver Creek, which is right next to it. A veil and Eagle County has been great to work with them to make sure it's a big safe event. So we're excited about it. But I actually walked by you last year and I was going to say hello, but you were on the phone. And I was like, Oh, you know what? I'm going to go ahead because this is before I interviewed you on zoom. So you know you don't know me, but you never got off the phone. You were just on the phone for, like, a day and a half. Seriously. What was that all about, anyway? We're not here to talk about our own personal kibitzing. We're here to talk economic plans because They are out. And you why you have words about them. I'm guessing Well, you know, First of all, I don't like all the money, the money that's being spent on borrowed. You know that that scares me and I could take make that accusation of both parties. Um, but, you know, I I am worried about the Biden planets. I bred the 95 page report and It's just, you know, boilerplate liberal tax spend regulate help this industry help that industry. It's not, and I didn't really find anything in that Biden plan that I thought would really be much help to the economy. And I think actually, most of the stuff was bad for the economy, and when you've got an economy that's really hobbled by these shutdowns. And then they add $2 trillion of taxes on that. That's just not a very smart idea to me, so we'll see what the president has to say. I like is, you know I've had a little hand in this payroll tax idea. That you know the suspending the payroll tax for the rest of year. They're negotiating that now with with after Pelosi either would be great. You know, we could get every single worker I think I've mentioned this a couple weeks ago on your show, 600, you know, $600,000 increase in their paycheck for the rest of the year. You know, over the course of the year that that would be kind of nice to get that kind of 6% pay raise every paycheck and it would help stimulate the economy in terms of employment and get that money on Main Street, Yusa. So there are some pretty stark differences between you know what Trump wants to do and what Biden wants to do. Well, let me ask you this because already the whole payroll tax cut has been. This is this is what it sounds like to me. They're trying to kill Social Security. How do you pay for Social Security? Steve? If you do away with payroll taxes because you want a complete elimination permanently, right? Well, no, no, no, no, no, no, I I want you know what Trump What? Dash? It doesn't matter what I want. It matters. What? Alright? Hey, want to suspend the payroll tax for the rest of the year so that you inspire hiring? Because we've got to get people back to work. You get this money into the economy, you incentivize people to get back on the job. And it's better than giving unemployment. Sure it's unemployed people because we want people to work, not stay unemployed and still be a nice left. And you know what's ironic about this? I'm so glad you asked this question, Mandy because You know, we actually have on our website committee unless prosperity people should go to that because we have this great little digital ad we put out and all we did man. He was just find what Nancy Pelosi on Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama and Joe Biden said about the payroll tax cut 10 years ago. This is the best thing ever for the middle class is gonna help Every worker. This is fantastic. We couldn't do anything. More important for middle class or blue collar America. It will not hurt so security and and you know, we do this kind of before. After so, 10 years ago, the best thing ever now how dare Donald Trump raid So security like the answer to this is very simple. We're going to dio..
Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.

"Average moral politician Hey Mike test to see if I am covered sixty two house cleaner proper have not stopped with on what that means my good your story about your steamboat springs all yes yes yes I heard about that one hi I'm trying to get my blood pressure down tonight so I may or may not discuss that one tonight the before I tell you about Colorado you've heard me talk about what took place in Seattle an army field hospital that was on the verge of opening near downtown Seattle is now being moved to another state in greater need K. U. W. stone bouncy reports the two hundred fifty bad army field hospital was set up inside the cavernous CenturyLink field event center it was ready to begin receiving patients later this week but now there's a sudden change in plans Washington governor Jay Inslee announced the state the defense department and local officials agree the field hospital should redeployed to another state and more dire straits in other words can I just put it in in layman's terms up when they say we decided your consultation with each other with you know the defense department in the governor's office and the you know what other marketing books we can get together together to help spread the blame we have decided that this field hospital is better served in a place that need to working with in layman's terms that means we don't need it yeah we had we had the department defense come in and just build an entire army field hospital that never got used so terrible terrible let me build up build up what what whatever you know what I mean whatever build up tear down turn up bill downloadable it's kind of what's going on in the world anyway we're just kind of tearing things up building things down and just close just backtrack crazy what it is Washington state has flattened the curve rafts they say the worst fears for a few weeks can we at some point at some point I hope to live to be you know in my nineties this looks like well I do have my faculties now but maybe by the time I get to be an ideal have my faculties I just hope that by the time I get to be ninety maybe I still have my faculties are different faculties that I'll never hear the phrase flatten the curve again flatten the curve I'm ready to flatten each person that says to me flatten the curve Michael brown he threatened violence on the radio the other night he said the fee by king of pensive let me cope usual flight mill take that media matters to go when the call went out to fort Carson Colorado we're not realized emergency managers and local hospital leaders tell Inslee's office they have sufficient capacity to handle the expected volume of covert nineteen patients in a statement the governor cautions the virus isn't defeated yet and could resume its rapid spread and this will be keep your call you know we flatten the curve but you must still remain very very afraid you must you must still remain afraid because well we told you when you flatten the curve and well dammit you flatten the curve as of what we we we somehow got to keep you scared again so the virus might be just around the corner ready to come again no like the flu does every year just like the common cold just like you I'll just do every year yeah your allergies the flu the common cold all of this stuff just keeps coming around and around and around all the time but this time it's scary once people keep up their guard and continue to stay home I'm Tom Bhondsi reporting keep your guard stay home yeah all the local news stations this comes from well you know comes from those who come from all the local news I'm not giving the credit all the local news station to running stories about the Colorado convention center being converted into a into a two thousand bed field hospital did you no I heard that the mayor the governor and I don't know thank you to general or somebody were flying in to the convention center on Blackhawks because the traffic in downtown Denver right now so bad because you can't make it down the boulder turnpike where you can't make it builds up your bowl of our full with what you get the negative Speer Boulevard because well we shut that down so maybe they maybe they had used helicopters because Denver shut down all the streets so that that's the only way to get around downtown Denver they'll make you I just well I'm sorry I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking straight there for a moment but I still do wonder why the need to fly in to a makeshift hospital that's completely empty without Black Hawk helicopters rush hour Colorado mail rush hour in Colorado mills mills collect Russia or my home tale yep well look to speed up to get through the yellow light all the local news stations running stories about the color conventions that are being converted into a two thousand bed field hospital along with the similar a convention center in Loveland that would add another five hundred beds to that total of my before last they're all putting this statistic that quote Colorado has already seen one thousand five hundred fifty six people hospitalized from the virus now that come straight from the department of health website what does that mean the Colorado currently has one thousand five hundred fifty six people hospitalized because of the virus nope well you might ask before I even give you cancer develop let's just say that all one thousand five hundred fifty six hospitalizations are still in the hospital there are in excess of ten thousand beds in the state and I forget how many are acute beds in ICU beds but yet so well it's enough to handle that the answer is simple the one thousand five hundred fifty six figure is the cumulative number of people who have ever been hospitalized in the state since Colorado since Colorado began tracking hospitalizations thirty six days ago on March ninth so are the vast majority of those people who were hospitalized fifteen twenty thirty or thirty six days ago still in the hospital six I don't think so because if we have a fourteen day it recovered or dead well the answer would be no right what is the actual number of hospital beds being occupied by COPD patients in Colorado today nobody nobody can or nobody will tell you that number but here a couple things to consider we have had three hundred twenty nine reported deaths from corona virus in the state I've checked the numbers today this email from yesterday if you assume that all or the vast majority of those two deceased patients were occupying a hospital bed prior to their death you can reduce that one thousand five hundred fifty six figure by at least three hundred forty nine reported deaths right if you go back fourteen days to March thirty first the state was reporting seven hundred ninety three cumulative hospitalizations as of that date if you back up to two hundred fifty deaths that were reported as of that same date March thirty first that would be another five hundred forty three patients who have presumably been cured and destruction hospital so you subtract the three hundred deaths in the five hundred forty three killed patients from that one thousand five hundred fifty six.

Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland
"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland. So they would know if there were storms like that actually occurring at that time. Yeah and like you said they were all very experienced. They were stationed in a brand New Light House. That I'm sure the lighthouse still standing to this
Is Old Faithful Becoming Less Faithful?
"Old faithful used to have a less than modest nickname attorneys timepiece. Since at least the late eighteen hundreds this wyoming cone geyser has vowed spectators with its predictable. Eruptions you can see the landmark for yourself in Yellowstone National Park home to over five hundred geysers more than one hundred and fifty of these water spurting marvels including old faithful occupy the parks upper geyser basin so named in eighteen seventy because it spouted at regular intervals. Old faithful gets more fanfare than any other geothermal attraction in the world visited by presidents and immortalized by artists. The guys are spouts about seventeen times a day. Countdown clocks tell gathering tourists when to ready their cameras for the next waterworks. Show is he. There's a simple formula. Rangers used to estimate. How much time will likely elapsed between any two eruptions of old faithful? According to the National Park Service about ninety percent of these eruption predictions are accurate within a window of plus or minus ten minutes. That's a solid track record but old faithfuls still isn't something you'd want to set your watch by. Five decades of observation have revealed that the geyser is changing since nineteen fifty-nine the average interval between old faithfuls eruptions has gotten longer and while most of the actual eruptions which occurred back. Then were rather brief. This is no longer the case we spoke by email with sin may woo a geologist at the University of Utah who studied the physics of geysers and related structures. She said geysers are rare because they require very unique geologic conditions a persistent heat source abundant water supply from groundwater systems and porous or fractured medium that allows fluid migration and he transfer within usually the heat comes from magma a liquid or semi liquid rock found below. Earth's crust which is called lava once it bursts onto the surface yellowstone is positioned over to magma chambers including a. Nice long one. That's just three ten miles underground. That's five seventeen kilometers. Their maker was a localized swell of abnormally hot material. Beneath the crest classified as a mantle plume. It's the reason why. Yellowstone has the world's largest geyser collection the chambers warm up subterranean reservoirs of liquid groundwater. Although the physics here aren't entirely settled. We do know that some of this water gets super heated. That means it's temperature climbs above and beyond waters normal boiling point since this water's held him. Tight corridors. It's got nowhere else to go at first bearing down on the superheated liquid is a combination of overhanging rock and colder water at cramped quarters to the mix. And you've got a recipe for high pressure but the pressure doesn't last forever in a geyser like old faithful hyperactive. Steam bubbles eventually pushes small percentage of the groundwater through a narrow opening at the surface. Just like that. The pressure decreases and sets off an explosion of hot water and steam. If you're wise you'll give old faithful a wide berth. Visitors can safely watch the geyser erupt from a boardwalk maintained by yellowstone venture off that path. And you might be on the hook for six months in prison and a five thousand dollar fine and besides getting too close to hydrothermal features. Like geysers or hot springs isn't a cool idea. When old faithful goes off the water temperature around its vent can hit two hundred and four degrees? Fahrenheit that's ninety six Celsius meanwhile the steam gets even hotter sometimes exceeding three hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit or one hundred seventy seven Celsius viewed from an appropriate distance. Old Faithfuls eruptions are thrilling spectacles. Even if you've seen one before you might want to revisit the geyser some day because certain eruptions last longer than others. We'll explained that old. Faithful isn't as predictable as at once seemed there are two different categories of gaps between eruptions and of eruptions themselves an eruption that begins and ends in under two and a half minutes is considered short. Others are longer after a short eruption. There'll be an intermission of sixty to sixty five minutes before the Geyser spouts again yet old faithful will reliably take a break of around ninety two minutes once a long eruption subsides over the past fifty years longer eruptions at old faithful have become the norm short. One still occur but they are rarer than they used to be and no one is entirely sure. Why while the mystery is unresolved some geologists blame recent earthquakes for this changing schedule? The guys are source is another riddle. Scientists haven't determined where old faithful gets. Its water supply. Though in two thousand seventeen study Wu and five colleagues revealed an important clue using seismic waves sensors. They found a natural reservoir below the historic old faithful in which stands south. West of the Geyser who who said that body is interpreted to be a highly fractured and saturated area that we think provides fluids source to old faithful plumbing questions and by modal eruptions aside. Old Faithful is indeed more faithful. Then some of its counterparts. It's time we introduced the steamboat. Eiser another yellowstone resident. That happens to be the world's tallest. Active Geyser emitting jets of water three hundred to four hundred feet into the sky above. That's about ninety to one hundred and twenty meters but who said it is very unpredictable and has gone decades between eruptions the last eruption before March of two thousand eighteen was in September of two thousand fourteen. She added however that the two thousand eighteen blow up quote began an unprecedented active phase steamboat. Geyser has rented a total of eighty five times since then with the last eruption occurring February twenty first twenty twenty. We still don't know what initiates this active as what controls its eruptive behavior and what geometry looks like

I grew up in a little ski town in Colorado called Breckenridge who grew up in Brook Park City. Oh No kidding I actually prefer park city to Breckenridge so Nothing to complain about Breckenridge but it's a lot a lot faster to get to park city. So that's what proxy has going all the places in Colorado and Sun Valley in Miami and stuff are prettier than park city because they're more remote but easy to get to it is records is a cuter town though.

I've actually had several not several zero but like three or four other people on the podcast that we uncovered the same thing. Then like you're kind of bonded actually one of the five founders. FACEBOOK Grew up in Sun Valley located. No kidding wow were you on the scheme in high school and I mean pre high school I would ask and then I'm sure with you. It's going to be really serious about school or are you. It sounds like you guys have a winner school. We can go to school all summer. Long have the winter or summer.

I love it and we got into a little bit of of of tally there. But like let's let's start earlier in the background. Like where do you up in cool. Ski Town Kid You WanNa like go to a big city for college like I want to do. What's going through your mind? Will it was for me. Actually I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur actually I've a little flyer that my mom saved. She showed me a couple years ago but I went door to door offering would stacking and poop scooping services when I was nine and actually when I was a freshman in college I started my first company which I ended up growing to four hundred employees dot. I built a one of the largest residential house painting companies in Massachusetts so I actually moved moved to To Boston to start this company. Anthony as a teenager and that company got acquired and I built a a couple of other companies thereafter. So I've just always been in love with the idea of You know taking an idea that you're passionate about from scratch and turning it into something and At least for me tally is the thing that's been closest to my heart. Because growing up there was just a lot of There's a lot of anxiety in our household around money and my mom in particular. Is this really dynamic eccentric. SMART person she works. It's really hard. Runs her own business and despite all of that She just there's just a lot of A lot of financial financial stress and she really hasn't been able to reach Chennai ever financial goals. So I was just like man. I want to build a service. That's capable of taking the load off of people and allow them to live their lives lives and so my mom. She's an exercise and she's a Ravi again. It's like you do all that okay and we're GONNA pay all your bills and manage everything for you just like if you had like a team of five. I people working for you and I want to build that into software so that we cannot take take all that All that off of off of the human experience plate and allow people to just do what they love right so this is an interesting kind of play. I always get to it so you grew up in an entrepreneurial family like this was instilled in you from from day one it was never. I'M GONNA go work for some big bank or something you know any my parents were Were Very Encouraging that we we should charter on path. And Actually I was home schooled for the first All the way through sixth grade and end you know I mean even my mom. She's like. Hey what do you Wanna learn and I was like well. I WANNA learn about taxidermy. She's like okay so she went through the yellow pages and cold. Called taxidermists is and found one that would let us camp out in their workshop for a a week or so and like we'd go there and you learn about the taxidermy business in all the chemicals they use and everything things so it was just this idea of. Hey the world is your oyster. You just have to be willing to go you know make phone call or knock on the door and go explore and you can learn anything. You want You just have to be willing to go after it so Feel really really fortunate. It's really empowering way to to educate here's some crappy don't Wanna learn learn it memorize. Yeah like learns actually care about exactly and it's just that that intrinsic motivation. My parents were always. It was all about curiosity and chasing your curiosity so for me. I was never at a point where I dreaded school like I always like. I couldn't wait to go to school like me when I hear my friends talking about. Like the next game of thrones. I haven't watched that here. It's over but when they were talking about the next episode that excitement and anticipation. That's kind of what I felt going to school because I was like. What am I gonNA learn? And what new ideas am I gonNA the House. Oh yeah that was definitely thanks to my parents okay. So then. What's the start of this of this house painting company? Yeah it was just I mean when you're eighteen years old old end Wanting to start a business I was like. Hey I want to do something. That will require a lot of employees because I really wanted to learn about leadership and I wanted to learn about on just like the actual people side of running a business and so that seemed like an accessible thing for me and the first year I had about Fifty employees and then ended up going from there to About four hundred when I sold the company and honestly I mean I I did eventually get an NBA from University of Chicago. But I learned more in those couple years running house painting business than I. I haven't any other point in my life and just just a complete crash course in you. Know recruiting in hiring firing managing on challenging situations on creating a management structure. All all of that was It was just this really really stressful. Suppose the most stressful point in my life but it was the place where I got A. I don't know if you've heard of the ten thousand arose but I I got a good chunk of my ten thousand hours of of building. It managing a company in the in College Shar so you started it in Colorado or Massachusetts in Massachusetts so I ended up going to school Boston University and I went the two classes at Bu but other than that. I was working the entire time. So I don't know a single person from view at least that did you graduate. I did I'm a buckner so I I graduated highest honors but literally. I'd be sitting in the back. I'd have my laptop open. I'm like sending emails like dealing with issues. And then I'd have my notebook on the other side taking notes so it was a very multitasking signs. Do you regret that. I do not I did go to business school for the reason that I wanted in intellectual vacation and when I was in business school I really enjoyed myself. I worked at a venture capital firm. I wanted to. I thought for a little bit I wanted to be a VC. But I realized that. I'm an operator Raider. But I took like a machine learning courses like I just went like super deep in finance and I just had a blast in college or I'm sorry and business school so I made up a little little bit for the sacrifice. Is The path Painting Company Sell Painting Company business. School no I started a new company after the painting company when I graduated. And we It's called Bass Dot Com and We ended up Boo Shopping the company. All the way till seven years in The only money we took was twenty twenty million for maybe S. capital partners after it was already very successful and You know kind of more to the private equity stage but we actually actually wrote our own screen sharing software so this was way way back in the day and what our vision was is that you know. This was in the birth of spyware and like people's computers were constantly having issues so he said we want to have a PC care subscription service so that any normal consumer Ken Press a button and have remote tech support instantly without having to talk anybody and then every quarter. Our our technicians would remote into the computer and maintain it to prevent issues like changing oil in the car. And so that was our our brain child right out of college in down built that up and then I was like. Hey you know what I. It's been a lot of hard work. I WANNA go take this vacation Chicago and it was. It was wonderful two years. That's actually where I met my co-founder from next to company so awesome and so you said you intern. During between years one and two the I did YEP in Chicago. Ah note was in Silicon Valley so there's a A Pacific Northwest Venture capital firm. They do a series they investing called Voyager capital and. I actually really was just supposed to intern. But they kept. Were having me look at deals and do work when I went back to Chicago. Yeah so it really taught me a lot. I learned a lot about fundraising and how bad most pitchers are. I learned how painful it is to be on that side of the table when pitches a really bad And I also learned that. It's I mean no offense to anybody who is a V. V. C. but it's a very passive sort of world you're like you're trying to identify and pick value creators but you're not like creating value yourself in for for at least my disposition. I just love

Ski Areas Find Seasonal Workers in Short Supply
"Thanksgiving is the traditional start of the ski season in the United States. There's usually enough snow around for resorts to open by now but ski area's needs something else. Seasonal seasonal workers who are becoming harder to find Wyoming. Public Radio's Maggie. Mullen reports David Bird with the National Ski Areas Association says for a Long Time Ski Resorts had one big incentive to attract all the workers. They needed a season pass. Those days are long gone. That's true says Lauren. Duke with steamboat Springs Ski Resort in Colorado. She says it's tough to hire with unemployment around four percent nationally. The resort industry usually trends with the economy. Here at the base of the steamboats Christie Peak Express. Lift Duke says that means resorts have to do more. I think everyone in the ski industry is always looking for ways to make their workplace the best workplace steamboat has increased base wages to twelve dollars and fifty cents an hour about a buck. Fifty above Colorado's minimum wage wage seasonal workers. Stay on for nine to eleven months. You benefits like health insurance and paid time off and parental. Leave those only on for the ski season Get perks like warm lunch or dinner for three to five dollars and discounted lift tickets for friends and family. Plus their season pass committee used at other resorts in the area. deb Hallway. A twenty six season veteran of steamboats ski patrol says she seen affordable housing become more of an issue the amount of reasonable rental properties thirties. I think is certainly diminishing over time and and That's tough as second. Homes and services like AIRBNB VIR B O or reducing housing stock doc and resort areas more resorts are offering workforce. Housing steamboat offers some staff rentals for three hundred fifty two four hundred and fifty dollars a month. About two-thirds it's cheaper than the lowest end local free market rentals plus steamboats units are right next to the resort. Norma Nickerson says I kind of proximity is important. You'RE NOT GONNA drive from Denver all the Way Vale. Every single day as a worker Nickerson directs the University of Montana's Institute for Tourism and Recreation Research. I know that some of the ski resorts have said well. If we don't get full staff were in were right on that edge and then of course somebody gets sick or they can't be there for few days. The the administrative people are out there doing those jobs just to fill in. And when that doesn't cut it she says resorts cut down on services like reducing restaurant on ours enclosing particular runs. You're leaving money on the table. They don't WanNa do that. But they're forced to another wrinkle. In Industries labor market resorts have traditionally nations depended on foreign workers in the US on J. One visas but it trump administration executive order placing restrictions on that program. Means that pool of employees has also been reduced. David Bird says it's not just a problem across the rockies. What I hear a lot from ski area owners and operators and it's true grew from large resorts down to small resorts? We're not feeling close to all the jobs that we have better available and if you do land one of those jobs you'll still get the season pass but ski resorts now know that alone.

It's like the event the day before just blew me away. I wasn't expecting that and what I mean by that is usually when I go to an event. I you know pretty nervous in the race. And you're like you just WANNA get your number. Do you register go back here lodging and just chill ass in like here. It's like we did that. Fund one group rat in the morning and that was a hoot and then he came back and like you know you're just standing around visiting all your partners and then you're shooting the shit with all your friends that you see you go get coffee which is a block away and then you come back and the pro panel and then you know that happy Our you know like I stood in line and I met Eric Yeah hit the Canyon. I was like wow. This is amazing and I'm seeing friends so for me. The your pre day event expo kind of felt like a cocktail party and I was there for like five or six hours to the point where I was like. Wow Frank you gotta get on me right. Yeah Yeah Yeah I kind of happy medium there probably but we know we really act. Put a lot into that Saturday because we we again. It's a weekend. It's not just the race. You know the races on Sunday because we wanted people to be able to meet the brands right there so without these brand sponsors. Sat wouldn't exist right. These guys have been unbelievable. Young from Canyon all the way through stages smart will what whatever whatever it is the smart wall stickers and you had to find your match partner was Super Fun. Yeah because it got shoots to talk with strangers correct and so you're going around the expo. Everyone's checking everyone out. Yes this is smart will was was the hit of that expo. We got a lot of feedback on smart will and I'm biased that brain time but but the interesting thing about that contest is that contest started in two thousand and six at birds of prey in Beaver Creek. The the World Cup Alpine event downhill of that. Okay and and it was an idea a friend of mine actually came up with Sky Name Joel Heath. That was doing creative work for small at the time and he came up with that idea so two thousand six thirteen years later that concept still working at events. Yeah Jeddah getting people to do exactly exactly you said talk to one another right because most likely you're there for the same reasons or maybe some similarities which is cool. Yeah that was great so so with that said what are you doing in two thousand twenty two top your success in two thousand eighteen well tavern it I think you listening to some of the feedback was really really helpful and candidate. We didn't know I mean mm-hmm I mean gosh up to five hours before the race. I was hoping that we'd still have the race right. You know it's that it's that crazy especially in your one but I think for for next year a couple of things we listened and we got some great feedback on people unanimously. Were saying that. Vat We love those three courses but boy there was a course that was like sixty seventy miles. Can you do that. Because there's so. We had a gap so we were really really concerned or intent on having entry point at thirty seven miles you you know two three hours of riding where anyone that wanted to participate could give it a shot and now was a huge success. I'm to get people to do that course. But stepping up to one hundred miles from there. That's a lot. That's a huge jump so and on top of that you you know. I don't know when this happened. I heard you Jackson talking about this later on in the year not about necessarily spat. Maybe it was but but since when did hundreds become like not that big a deal right it is right and because it is right it absolutely is and so and that's that's only the second distance ordeal and so we want to put something in for riders to step up from thirty seven miles writers. That didn't participate despite all because they said hey thirty-seven was long enough or worth coming up there and one hundred while that's maybe too much or for people that just don't WanNa be. We've blown like like I when when we designed this sixty four mile course now we're adding sp gravel read is what it's called. I went out and road this route. I'm like man like this perfect like this is something I can do a lot. Really fine and Guests to see a big chunk of what everybody's riding guests to go up the corkscrew. Climb still guests to participate in a a lot of suffering but you know three four five six hours or whatever and you're you're out of there and that is that is is and then you get more time at the expo or more time at the start finish and I think it's pretty good so so we added that we think that's GonNa be a hit with a lot of folks hopefully and then from a course perspective. The other big thing that we did was the added in a little bit single-track track double-track into the event and so that will be on the blue and the black horses so the black course and blue course last year. One hundred forty one miles that one hundred miles this twenty twenty. There'll be one hundred forty four and one hundred and three so that set and so where this comes in Dan which I think most people are most concerned about is it comes in pretty early so it comes in about three miles after the the first. Komo cool of the day when people are going around steamboat lake ca so for people that wrote last year that was so hard to not not late to go just hard enough but you knew had so much. Burn out I think it's GonNa be an interesting dynamic and we'll talk about how racing Ingo Strategies but for the people that are truly.

I'm glad that you're here. You know and before we begin talking about steamboat travel. I thought we would ask you a little bit about yourself itself in your background since you put on a hell of a race this past summer. And Yeah I wanted to Have you tell our listeners. How you got into cycling you know when you know? How did you get into gravel? What's your what's your background? Yeah I mean I mean my background as an athlete I guess maybe we start. There is yeah. I grew up in Chicago and was a team sport athlete so I played baseball basketball and golf. Okay High School Okay but like anybody else. I think when you get older you stop playing those sports not necessarily golf right. I stopped playing golf but lots of people still play it but but I was looking for other things to do. Wanted to stay fit or healthy and then also is there a way to compete and so I started actually riding. Bikes and college in the mid Delayed eighties to. Where did you go to school? I went to Miami of Ohio outside. Cincinnati but but yeah I got Nineteen eighty six. I got a specialized rock hopper and started riding around the trails with my friends or things in college. You know and as I got out of school. That sort of evolved to running running swimming. Bud Light Triathlon series Galway's went like all those things that were going on at the time Because Endurance Sports. It's like really evolving or or you had like the Dave Scott Mark Allen Iron War in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine in Hawaii. So that's when I was I was in college and so I think I was. I was getting molded to maybe be an endurance athlete. Just by some things that were happening and just my need to stay. Stay Fitter competitive so I am. I started running five ks and writing Simone Bike trails and I saw some triathlon stuff off and said well. Maybe I'll do that so actually most of my cycling background Let's say for that twenty years after it came from triathlon. Okay I I was a typical triathlete. Like do do wine and have no idea what you're doing do a second one. Have some sort the idea what you're doing and then do some more and then build up to distances from you know the Olympic to have two full or whatever be so my did that for a long time time and then as I start getting older my knees start to hurt. My back started hurt. I didn't want to run and if you don't WANNA run intractable on it's GonNa be really bad race. I mean it's hard enough when you want to run right so I really kind of evolved to and I'm not a natural swimmer so if I wasn't gonNA do triathlon. I wasn't going to swim so I more just of all the cycling road racing and then writing road bikes San Gravel. Just because where we live in steamboat was so many amazing roads. And then I have my first gravel by five years ago six years ago like most the people listening to. What was your first gravel event? My first gravel of Van was Oh God I'm trying to think the gravel mob in. Oh Hi okay. So cow right. Yeah maybe Four years ago. Okay so relatively new. I did the Rafa. Prestige steamboat on a road bike. With twenty eight's nine Brian Bliss in two thousand sixteen with my one of my partners. Spat gravel can and then we we started really getting kind of just kept going. And I gotTa grab a bike and then you start.

Mark Randolph talks about turning a No into a Yes
"Everybody Buddy welcome to episode three twenty five of the ask. Garry show and I'm very excited about this episode. Let's go right into it. I know a lot of people watching livestream across all the platforms but it's GonNa be Lincoln today. As we continue testing out Lincoln live linked in. Please put in your phone numbers. If you have a question for for my distinguished guest here today Markham and allow you to introduce yourself in a second. new book is out. Obviously I'm really excited about talking about Netflix and his career but I want to get into a bunch of questions because even the first three or four minutes of just hanging with him before we went live. I think the energy is going to be really good which which is exciting to me from a content standpoint so mark. Why don't you introduce yourself and tell everybody a little bit about your origin. Story sounds good. Gary so Marc Randolph co-founder co-founder for CEO net flicks and now soon to be author. which is kind of adding something totally new to my mix for you origin story well? I'm I'm sixty one so I'm still working out with. My origin story is what were you born. I was born just over there in Chappaqua up so I'm a New York boy. He's so for the first half of my life and so. What kind of kid were you so? I was a kid who anytime I wanted to do something. My parents said go for it. That's I I come home and go dad. I'm going to caving in rather than being like what are you. What are you nuts. I get the fantastic. That sounds really cool. That's really neat. It was really neat. Where where were you in the only child you have siblings. I'm the oldest of three okay so right off the bat. Even you know it's funny you hear that a lot more from third child's else perspective so even as the oldest. Your parents had gave you some room. I think for third child. It's like what's what's your name. I know knows it was is really great. It all other thing I do reflect back on. What was it about how I grew up that maybe gave me? Some of the things I have and one is that it was also a family. We're no is always something to get around. It was like not something that you took no and walked and left from the standpoint of if your parents said no oh they appreciated you trying to figure it out a little bit 'cause my mom was like that a little bit yeah and also them kind of recognizing that whenever barrier came up it wasn't like we give up and walk away okay it. It was always being said there's amazing. Go right into this a little bit later this. I was graduating from college okay and I wanted to get a job as a advertising EXAC back. Okay I was really into yet anyway. I applied for this job at. NWEA air no longer here but firm Yup and it was one of those jobs which only usually usually goes to MBA's yup is an undergraduate so as long shot thing and those like I don't know a thousand people applying and I got the first round and then the second round they bring it in York and and I got the second round in the third round they bring you back and I got down to the point where there's only four people applying for this job and it was like Holy Shit and I went in in an interview with everybody whole day and didn't get it and went slinging backup to upstate New York college and going well screw it. I'm I'm not going to up so I wrote these long emails to our letters letters letters to everybody and basically was saying like all right. I'll try again. What what could I do better. What should I learn. What do you want to see and then the guy goes. Come on down and brings me up and offered me the job and the crazy thing is that no one was given the job none of the four of us interesting that this was a job which was about turning a no into Oh yes and so they said no to everybody and waited to see who would not take no for an answer really absolutely. That's amazing that a crazy crazy thing thing. I love it so that really is probably the best articulation of how I grew up interesting so you took that job kind of actually notice how I kind of the way you tell us what I'm like. He didn't take the fucking job I did and I took it even crazier job. which was there was the guy? I've ever told history before. There was a guy in Memphis. Tennessee owned a big cotton company sold it in the family of two hundred years made a gazillion dollars and was basically driving around throwing money out the window basically feels like today you're go he'd he bought these properties and I'm kind of an outdoorsy guy. They have always been into like your story was caves. Yes absolutely WHOA. This guy had bought a ski shop. He'd bought a place out veil and he was looking for someone to tie them altogether and he goes. You'RE GONNA. You're going to run this kind of this big CO marketing business. Did you know that family friends that someone like that. That would give you that at bat at that. Young of an age. There was some other variable relationships. You're you're drag me down. These complicated stories but you're pro so there's an organization that I apologize business where I wanNA bring value to the audience mark. Here's why the reason I'm probing is because I have a very good sense of my audience and ironically. I'm pretty good at this other than the fact. I love to interrupt all the time. I'm because I'm just because I already know what the answers are and because I'm usually on a time crunch so they actually the audience gets mad at me. 'cause I interrupt everyone on the flip side. I've an incredible sense about what stories could bring value. I promise you mark let me tell you one thing about this audience. This is not the today show like what's amazing about. This audience is thirty. Four people bull arbitrary number just heard that story and literally in the next twenty four hours are going to reply to a no and one was gonna get yes and you and I literally right now. Just change the course of somebody's life and that's what gets me high. It's it's unbelievable and by the way don't worry about the interrupting. I mean if you just said like pass the roles and the thought I was talk about the story cool. How'd you get them. So when I was fourteen they packed my parents pack up to Wyoming to do this. backpacking trip in the mountains uh-huh and it turns holidays again which one of your parents was super outdoorsy. If either my dad my dad grew up in Austria so he kind of just if you've gone so and then I loved this program and it was a personal teaches leadership using a wilderness as a setting and I was a student there for three or four summers and then I ended up teaching there as a leader and then eventually got to the point is leading leading the whole courses so a lot of responsibility young that was my college summer job and so this Julian Jay Hohenberger the third the guy with the Cotton Company at one of the things he did when he was throwing the money the window was. I'm GonNa take a course he. He went out to Wyoming. He did this course you taught it. I did not he was so in Namur d- by the course and instructors that when he heard from my through through someone else that I was of course leader there he goes. I want that guy. You know what's so funny. I to this day still have that in me. You show me a kid a guy or a gal who flips sneakers cells blow. POPS does cards like I believe in that Shit Genetic Markers for entrepreneurship I do not it's candy the arbitrage everyone almost everyone. I meet like you says the same thing. It's going in and buying it for ten cents in the next day you go to school for a buck and if you show me people not that it's why. I love people that sell weed who sought like if you tell me that you sold we'd from a bad neighborhood obviously a normally but not always and and you sold nickel bags. I already am interested in you because it means literally arbitrage dime bags. Somebody who's never smoked weed telling the story Free College. I always thought my friend Bob use would have been a good entrepreneur because he had the discipline and the grind to go down to the nickel bag bag level that takes a real fucking commitment and so- arbitrage anyway absolutely right. It's it's the vision to go knocking. It's seeing an opportunity. It's seeing a pressure differential hundred and that happens for kids who are six when it's candy. It happens for people in their twenty six or forty six when they see oh man taxis suck. I'M GONNA do hundred thousand percent. It's that's why it's a marker for that is someone who sees things really matched of course with all these other things. Of course you've seen which is what happened your kid out of school. You're twenty two and you're now running this conglomerate of different businesses and then even worse. I did this job percents and this company better the company that one of the properties was in in the ghost town resort in outside of Vale and the manager did your left and they go and I go I want that job and so they moved me out and now you're this twenty-three-year-old knows nothing and he's running this place which a sixty employees and as he's huge cash flow issues and a restaurant bar and and I'm going down. I'm doing the marketing and the advertising and it was like cashflow one. Oh one it was management one. Oh one it was thrown into this super deep pool and going to swim. You don't know how you're sitting. You're quiet because I'm like. Oh my God we grew up the same way. I'm the byproduct of the same thing in a liquor store. Yeah it was a small base of four five and six employees and then I grew it but by the time I was twenty five years old. I had managed people. I'd paid all my bills with my cat own cash flow. You know credit no credit line. I forget about fucking raising capital. No credit line the first business I built from three to sixty million dollars hours year in fucking eight years had no credit. That's awesome because then you don't see credit as a crutch. You see it's a thing that you is what you know now how to use that the US it's awesome and even if you're trained in it when I raised money for empathy. I didn't spend it as well when when that's exactly right it is something that could save you overspend your business and that is a very very strict teacher so I mean did that cool. Thanks yeah some stuff did that then. It got probably the the job which influenced me the most is. I got this weird job. Quick quick question. I struggle with Sir Twenty three and you're in in this resort town right. Yes resort town SORTA. It's halfway between Vail and steamboat which means the middle of nowhere but it's close to both and you're twenty three twenty three and you've got this kind of cool big job. How did you balance your personal life and your professional life at that point in your life because I've actually I'm not going to lead lead the question. What did you do. How how much did you date. How much fun were you having how much fun where you having a great thing it. Was it was a really good lesson. I had a lot of fun and So don't get me wrong. Because everyone was working. There was twenty three going go ahead and so and and it was the Alpha of the twenty three and that was leverage. That was the bad part though was that these guys it was on the banks of the Colorado River so they'd all go. Hey we're all going rafting going. I've gotTa do you know inventory. I gotta how to pay these responsibilities and it kind of really was painful. So I got a lot of funds. I'm not bemoaning it but there was this realization that there's a different level level of responsibility that I had but I did meet my wife there and so amazing did come out of come out of that go ahead all right so the come come back east and got this how old must've been only twenty four quick twenty-five two years in Colorado two and a half years okay keep going so come back and get this crazy job basically as gopher to the CEO of Music Publishing Company. I think my title was like a I chief of staff or something looking at all. These guys is like literally my so far. I just want everybody who's listening to you right now. I'm sorry mark I'm taking episode over listening. I just I don't know if you've been listening but I think I could see some of you in the room putting the pieces together my core so my advice is to do and like manage and like like actually make and sell it and then or and or if you want to be somebody go work as an Admin a gopher chief of staff for somebody. That's extremely at a very high level each shit. It is basically what I'm saying. Basically is what I'm saying and I'm just GonNa make it simple here so far. What I've heard from mark is the first two things didn't his career was jumped in full throttle. Sacrifice is what he was saying couldn't have as much fun dealt with all that was practical and then and then have the humility. Let's say one more time for all the people out there that love being a CEO had the humility to go from being the lead dog of something like that in that ecosystem going and being a gopher a chief of staff of whatever about the here and I just want to remind all of you this all lead for him to be the CO founder and CEO of Netflix so it's such a I'm so glad you called a little time out on that one because that that is the the piece of advice I give to every single person who goes.

PBA DOT com slash B W daily the UH from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Tuesday September tenth hot out there well well if you're a skier no matter whether you're sweating and turning up the air conditioner as you listen to this. It's time to think about buying your ski pass. That's because the ski industry he has been consolidating over the last few years. Colorado giants Vail Resorts and Altarum Mountain Company has been doing two things each has been buying up resorts across the country country and abroad and they've been creating huge season pass programs the give pass holders access to the mountains they own as well as to partner resorts all over the globe globe as the two fierce rivals focus on selling more and more season passes daily lift ticket prices get ever more jaw-dropping last season season daily passes to vail or beaver creek another high end. Colorado resort broke two hundred dollars for the first time making those to Vail owned resorts the most expensive in the US. That's a hefty fee especially. If you want to bring the kids why so pricey will impart the strategies to force you to make the comparison and determined that a pass is far more economical than buying daily lift tickets why spend two hundred nine dollars to ski for a Single Day at Vale when you could good spent about a thousand dollars to ski all winter whether you're in Vermont or Utah even Japan for people who are sure they want to ski at least a few days this it's winter a pass from one company or the other can save you a bunch of money. Veils epoch pass is good at sixty nine different resorts the icon which Altera Tehrik created just last year will get you into forty one resorts from Colorado steamboat to the icons newest European Destination Zermatt in Switzerland. It's not easy to give a head to head comparison on prices because the potential combinations are dizzying. Do you want ski in only one state while there's a price for that. I want unlimited skiing including over holidays everywhere. That's different current prices unveils season passes range from about four hundred dollars for local resorts to nine hundred sixty nine dollars to ski anywhere including new resorts in Japan and Australia. Alturas cost around five hundred dollars for local resort pass say Colorado's winter park to just over a thousand bucks for access to all forty. One destinations and there are discounts for veterans teran's in children and for people who can skip the most popular holiday times. If you're shopping get actress spreadsheets depending on how much you ski either pass could save you megabucks compared to a single day lift ticket but you knew this was coming. There's a catch to get these discounts. You have to be a planner owner low prices and before Thanksgiving that's because a few years ago the rivals parent companies realized it would be smart to book revenue while Violets still warm out there rather than waiting for unpredictable Mother Nature to deliver customers early season pass revenue wooden just smooth out the bumpy nature of the ski a business it would give each company predictable revenue stream and for Vail boost share prices just like subscription businesses everywhere of course if you're an individualist. They're still bumper stickers on old vehicles in the Colorado rockies that say F- Vale you can still find an independent independent mountain or to those family mountains whether in Colorado or any other mountain state or often more down to earth not to mention cheaper than the glitzy resorts.

"For some reason. I don't know why Lauren the long-term forecasts. It looks pretty clear, right. Yeah. Prison toll early next week. There might be another little shot. It's snow, but that's still far enough away. That is. Yeah. It's still not great with the models yet on that one. But maybe again another little round. I don't know if it'll be this much next week. But as it gets a little closer. Well, the models will start still a little bit better on that one. But it's been great like you said a real winter. I know everyone likes it when it's in the fifties and sunny, but we have the worst wildfire season last year at our drought is so bad that these weekly storms are just such a great thing for our state. That's so nice in the mountains are getting pounded. Yes. I just got an Email from Steamboat Springs ace up foot of snow already purgatory stuff would have snow yesterday and many areas of seeing it pile up. So it'll be fun to see the snow reports come in tomorrow when they when they get that snow overnight tonight too. So, yeah, it's been great for the skiers and boarders and everybody, plus, you know, everyone's happy when our reservoirs get full in the springtime too. Very true. So Lord, you have enough poll that you can move the official weather data center back to Stapleton. Can you do that?

Yeah. I mean, you're gonna compare weather from DIA in Stapleton back one hundred years ago. Yeah. It's changed a little bit. You would think it would be worse at DIA because it's out in the plane too. But it is correct. No, it's not it's out there. But you would think they would get more because there's nothing protecting it. You know, why don't we start a push the shows powerful enough? Let's do it downtown at the capitol or somewhere nearby. Downtown either I live downtown for years, and Rick knows there's a.
