Wet Notes 5-6-2021
"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

Ascension Island Telescope Tracks Fast-Moving Orbital Space Debris
"Island a tropical paradise halfway between brazil and is the home for a nasa telescope with a special mission. And in this case location is everything is innovation now. The nasa air force research laboratory on ascension island houses a telescope with a very special mission to track fast moving orbital space debris the orbital debris program office at nasa's johnson space center collects the data from this and several other ground based optical and radar telescopes across the world. Reliable software tools are then used to predict the risk debris might pose to spacecraft earth and the international space station with more than seven thousand metric tons and millions of individual pieces of space junk orbiting earth tracking the debris is essential because orbital debris moves much. Faster than a sniper's bullet. Even a small piece can destroy satellites or spacecraft on impact but the ascension island telescope has a unique feature a double horseshoe mount designed to track fast moving objects and the view from this telescope gives scientists is on what had been a global blind spot

"All welby. Welcome to bigger pockets. Podcasts man at the often have here. I appreciate it man. I can't even believe i'm here. They can got so much for this opportunity for sure man. Well let's dig into your story. Let's go to the very beginning. I know you went in real estate and several phases so to the very very beginning. What was your first venture into real estate. Investing my first venture in the real estate. If i could maybe go back a little bit of mind my first idea of ever being in real estate is when i was about maybe seventy eight years old. I was living in the projects in brooklyn where my parents my family and my godfather he was doing pretty good for himself what he would come and visit us and you would always have these nice fancy causing dress. Nice and later on us. When i found out an understood that he was in real estate he owned one or two properties yet his own brokerage and stuff like that and i would be able to go visit him in the suburbs of long island and i was always intrigued by the fact that i was able to ride my bicycle in the middle of the street versus where we would live in that. We couldn't do things like that. From that point when i understood that that's what he did was in real estate. I knew that some way somehow somewhere in my life i was going to be involved in real estate somehow so fast forward my first time actually purchased them our first home in real estate sometime around two thousand and four is when i purchased my first home. Was that the house for yourself to live in. No actually. I live in new york and i decided to buy a multi unit in atlanta. And this is right where subprime mortgages were going crazy and as long as you had a pulse you'd be able to get a mortgage so i was able to get a mortgage hundred and six percent financing so didn't really come out of pocket. Anything and i was able to acquire a four unit building and from the day. I bought it. It was a disaster from the day aboard.

The Story Behind James Taylor's Fire and Rain
"Doing the research for some of these shows one of the things. I bump up against a lot of weird rumors regarding the meaning behind the songs. And one of the biggest to james taylor's first big single fire and rain specifically the story that the song chronicles his reaction to the death of his girlfriend in a plane crash. So let's get out of the way immediately. No well not really okay. That was a little harsh. Let me roll myself back a little bit. The song was written in three stages each of them related to a specific event in his life. So let's take them averse at a time. Taylor was working the local coffee houses and clubs and so forth in new york city in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixties and he had a friend by the name of suzanne schnur who everyone. It's seems called. Susie now taylor said that they used to hang out together and they used to get high together but also said he thinks she came from long island which is not what you say about girlfriend material but were good friends. And that's a fact in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight taylor landed a contract with apple records to record his debut album which means he was off to london to do some recording. Now taylor had three roommates that he left behind a new york. All of whom were also close too suzy's and it was while he was in london that suzanne committed suicide. Now i did see a reference to interview. Taylor did with a british magazine called petticoat which susie committed suicide. Because you've been put into an election. Sal and couldn't handle it but unfortunately i couldn't dig up the primary source and all the internet based sources they basically point to one another so i couldn't really determine if that part of it is true at any rate the roommates all knew about it but they didn't tell taylor because they didn't want to shake him up while he was working on this record as a result he didn't learn the news until he got back to new york and she had been dead for about six months

As an academic to thinking about these connections robert keith collins is an expert on black indigenous interactions. He's an associate professor of american indian studies at san francisco state university. He's african american and choctaw. And he's here to tell us about a history. Many people know very little about welcome to the show dr collins. Thank you very much for having me. So let's start at the beginning. What is the beginning of indigenous black history. That's a fantastic question. And actually we owe a lot of our understanding about it to a canadian scholar. Alexander francis chamberlain france as in in eighteen. Ninety one wrote one of the most comprehensive analysis that we have today and that was african americans and what we find in that study is that this is actually a history. His later colleague would refer to as the third line of colonization. We've talked about a european and native colonization. We talk about european and african colonization. We seldom talk about american. Interactions during the colonization and this is a history that brings that back to live where we actually see cultural exchanges between people that are taking place within sovereign native communities as well as nations and families we also see interactions taking place especially for like in the united states among the five civilized tribes chuck. Todd's cherokees creeks chickasaw seminoles in slavery were native americans owned slaves and have an cultural impact on africans within their communities on their

The last episode president biden released his two thousand and twenty two budget. Well if you're a fan of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration or noah. You'll be happy in the budget. Proposal released on april ninth. The president proposed a record budget of six point. Nine billion dollars for knowing now. How does that compare well. This year knows budget is four point. Six billion wow. that's big increase. This budget really supports taking action. On climate change protecting marine mammals the ocean great lakes and coastal communities. If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end. Well that's where patricia dacosta her family recovered an emerald colored bottle with a handwritten message inside the note said thrown into the ocean on six december. Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark.

I had like muscles in my legs and I've never seen since before again, it was just sending sane ride pro you just remind me that's what that's what I WANNA do when I go back home I wanna ride the bike path again I hadn't done that forever I did like it's a great great ride. It's a great right and then it lets you in the park. Avenue and Merrick road where that place it's called Long Island cheeseburger. But we call the cheeseburger cheeseburger our whole lives because it had like the word written twice. L. Sketch. So we called this place cheeseburger cheeseburger and it to me it was like this place that. My mom would be like we're not going to cheeseburger cheeseburger. Shut up whatever like McDonald's and I remember when I was old enough to have my own car like we're gonNA cheeseburger cheeseburger when it was. Absolutely medium Li fi also. This up for like seven years and that was just the beginning of being let down by things I didn't know about for the rest of. It was it was that's a fun bike ride Emma. One of my friends had figured out. How to sneak into the to Jones beach amphitheater through like the swamp. That off of the bike path, he had figured it out and he was like I can't take you because I legitimately don't want too many people to know how to do it but then he took me one time and. They probably have changed it. Now, there's been a number of years, but he would leave his bike a certain area through this legitimate. He'd put on like a like rain gear and stuff thorns and you're going through all the nettles and and then he would hop wall that would basically be like where concessions is, and then he just like quick change and act like he was like working concessions walk through any. was unbelievable scam. That's I'll tell you the best version of that was working at Jones beach when a cool concert was in good friends I worked at the Zach's Bay beach, which is that Bay right next to the amphitheater. Be Like Gabor's come on over. We're going out on Kayaks with beers like after the beaches closed and you would be able to get close enough to hear the music but just be floating in the middle of the Ocean fucking slamming beers. It was a fucking I in the middle the bay a fucking time. This thank you for having me on this. This has been in crow or are you kidding thank you for doing this man. So I know you have a shit ton of stuff going on, but you also have a new podcast with. With Shay Right. You want to talk a little bit about shots here for people that check out connect. We shape, pick some movie, I pick a movie. Then we talk about the theme and the different ways that they connect and it's been fun I. Hope Ange. So check it out. Yeah that's right just to give a taste of the most recent one was. The. Movies to not watch on a plane and it was La Bamba and. What was World War World War Z. World War. Two. Brad Pitt Plan B.? Action Zombie Apocalypse Movie World War Z in which the scene in this being a. Zombie outbreak on the plane that's like leaving Israel and it crashes Oh. Great. Great. fucking seen. Great believable. Seen that movie is kind of low key underrated. Somehow I feel like I don't think it gets enough credit. It's it's really fun and the idea of shooting a machine gun into a Blob of zombies seems appealing even though I'm scared of guns and all that same. And you're at. Net W three a on. I'll tell you in all this when it comes out. Thank you so much, Jason. Thanks for doing this. But this was a blast man I'm glad we got to catch up and. Tell tell your girlfriend.

"Adams with like a Straw in. Unwieldy. To hold and like arguably hot by the time you get to the back half of it but to get that much beer for like four twenty, five on the ride unreal and then you get your. Your car is a half mile from your house because you live close to the transition while you're like this is a dangerous drive. I'm doing I'm going like I'll go on a half mile but I'm too drunk to drive. I remember when I first started taking those trains. I was like, wait a second. You can just buy like literally right here on the contract like the biggest beer I've ever seen in people just get fucked up. Okay. Last April me and my. My wife and I were like we've always wanted to see a billy Joel concert at. MSG. Like of course, it's like a long island fuck in Bingo check board. But so my mom had gone we talked and she's like I'll buy tickets for you guys if you'll like fly in and make a weekend and we started like randomly this one weekend we were supposed to be in for a wedding and Billy Joel was playing. We were like mom what about this is like four months in advance like mom what about able? and. My wife is like Oh. We should stay in the city and I'm like, no, we're staying at my mom's house. She's like, no stay in the city all our friends live in the city. That's where we met and I'm like, no, we have to commute into the concert. She's like, what do you mean? Oh, Mike just wait and see you'll see and it was a fucking highlight. We're all on the train we get on the train platform. It's me and my two brothers everyone's girlfriends or wives, and my mom just like the seven of us and all me and both my brothers each severally brought so much fucking alcoholic. Fifty minute ride. But my brother was like I brought a six beer on my I made four huge vodka and Sodas Mike Pinera comes to my mom has at the House for whatever reason and we got fucking gas and my wife's like I'm so glad we took the long island railroad I go. No. This isn't even why we took it. You'll see why we took it when the concert lights out and you go from square garden with everybody had billy Joel of. Station immediately onto a train everyone is hammered singing people have. Why? How And it was. The vibe is going to be unreal and it was what Long Island to me a nutshell at felt a little scary. But all in all was just people trying to have fun but there is that element of fear about. Sorry. We've talked about this a second ago back to. The whether you WanNa stay for life or leave immediately upon becoming conscious. I've now like come around to another level of consciousness where I'm like. I can appreciate Long Island I. Have This weird distance from where I'm like obviously anyone listen to my pockets or should I do I talk about it relentlessly but I've come back to it in a way and now moving to La helps even more sort hurts even more where I'm like this long island foam on the pandemic is hitting even harder like I associate it with seeing my family and my nephews and I just have this weird pining for long island that I'm going through right now and feeling the same thing now too because my godmother and my godfather who we who? Live did they lived in the same complex as in Queens I've known them my whole life they live on Long Island. Now, my brother lives like eight minutes away from. My mom in the House we grew up in, he's got he's got he just had a kid so I have a nephew. And my mom sending me pictures like literally every day of like them doing stuff there in the backyard barbecue or whatever it is all. There's no corona virus among island for some reason somehow according to my family do this is weird. One of my brothers still lives with my mom. My brother does live in bellmore eight minutes away from my mom with his kids. It's so clear and they're all together. My mom has a all the Time Warner Yard. It's like the summers them take a picture and I don't even let I didn't like living there and I get stressed after forty eight hours of being there but I'm craving just going back and. Seeing, everyone and getting the fuck out of there but it's not gonNA happen anytime soon and that part of it really sucks. You ever think so like we've. Both kind of had the same kind of arc and you live on Long Island? And you go live in New York for a while now in La like. Your purse, you'd like a working an entertainment at the at and you know people who are doing it too like I know people at different levels who are doing it sometimes, it's you go back and you're like so my friend who's like a producer on this and Blah Blah Blah, and then I'll catch myself saying I'm like man what the fuck of my even how did this even happen? That I'm saying Shit like this and but at the same time, it's totally these are like totally like normal jobs that you would have out here because it's like an industry town, but it just sounds like I'll catch myself from that perspective of like a kid on Long Island I'm what the fuck my even talking about right now I do I remember when my brother when I lived in. My second apartment in Brooklyn when I was living in Red Hook with my wife and my brothers. texting with my brother and my off to go to the cafe like Oh. So you can have wi fi and your taste and it was like Oh my God. Yes. WHO HAVE I become? An hour later I came back around I was like, wait a minute. Mock me. Wireless Internet but that is like the long island attitude. Let me guess you can't have your fucking and you gotta go to the cafe to get the Internet like. Yeah wait no, that's okay. That's city. Life Yeah. That's that's that's another great point. People don't really bus balls out here like that feels like a very, new? York. Long. Island thing is like grow but his busting balls out there with my girlfriend I was busting my godmother's balls for as busting Freddie's balls and and then I actually legitimately said I'm just busting his balls and she's like I can't believe people one that you just make fun of each other and to like you just used sincerely used the term busting balls like yeah. We bust each other's balls out here. This is what I said to my wife. The other day I'm like I think everyone on Long Island is ten percent funny or higher I mean obviously like we got Eddie, Murphy, Seinfeld, Junkie very.

Just WanNa, go to fucking get free Bourbon chicken at the food court and someone's behind me like serve. Sure. When I got to be when I moved to La was the first time I ever drove a new car, my entire life because at least a brand new car and it was like I had lived in New, York City for eight years. So missed all these cars and then I come out here and I just get a twenty thirteen jettas, my first car, and I'm just like Holy Shit driving a brand new it felt insane. I'm driving in the Internet. Immediately felt. I only had old cars and also had driven for ten years. So everything was I was like Whoa touchscreen. was like so stupid to me. Say you are a lifeguard I was I worked for New York State, which meant like I emptied garbage cans. I would go out with the stick and pick up garbage on the beach. I, drive that truck that would go down the beach and we'd throw like the garbage bags in the back with that shit that we would do you guys were like the gods to us. We were like cleaning the bathrooms. We'd watch you guys. You'd have that little wooden house that you got to hang out in a shack baby they sack. Even allowed near the shack. No. We were housing not allowed to go even look at the shack and it was it was like a real. It was a real object of like jealousy to look at the fucking shack. That's just jog out and they jog out and then they come back and they just hang out in the shack. They have TV in there and I've radio in there. It was such a fucking. I never had status like that in my life and I got it. I. Got it when I was like eighteen and I never had I'll never have that status again where someone will come up to you where you're sitting there I'm nineteen sitting there in Speedo, and someone's like excuse me Mr. Lifeguard, an adult woman I have some questions and I'm like they have no idea that I'm fucking. pissed my bed last night like waste. And now. And also all this weird stat and it goes to your head the lifeguards think they're like fucking seals. Not Let. Let me tell you. You don't need to tell me that the lifeguards absolutely thought they were fucking Navy Seals. You'd see them like after a helicopter they'd. I would say like once a week. Maybe, twice a month there'd be somebody who got fucked up. By either like boogie boarding they like crunched their back boogie boarding or a riptide was legitimately a big problem out there that they'd have to land like the helicopter on the on the beach and then drag them out and you'd see you'd see the lifeguards after that and they just like what's up saved the life again I guess we saved the life again, we have nothing more than like. Standing around with like our whistle on our BICEP and are fucking speedo sunglasses nothing else being like. A Harry one, we'd better watch the fuck and suck stand number s three. You know we would just be like three West is off his popping off today. Let's get some fucking vets out there like we loved it. So fucking much and I truly is the best job I've ever had to date and I've since been on television and. Smoke weed every once in a while and like still lifeguarding making fucking like fifteen eighty, five an hour when I'm like seventeen and nineteen eighty nine is unreal. Not only that, but then you get like if you work fourth of July, now you're getting the holiday time and then they always ask you to work overtime you get in the time in the half that was like the most money ever seen. My One paycheck would be like my entire summer salary was you worked fourth of July. Like Holy Shit I'm rich. Now because that weekend they would just be like we need everybody on and you're doing ten hour days and fourth of July, and because it's a state job, it has like some good benefit like it has some protections and it's like, Oh you get paid time and a half on fourth of July Memorial Day and and because it's a busy day at the beach, they do need all hands on deck. So everyone's they're getting paid time and a half the VIBE is holy Shit. It's going to be a hard day, but we're fucking making bank like I'm fucking seventeen and on on a time and a half day. Twenty four dollars an hour it was incredible today it was incredible and the Jones beach lifeguards get our union. We have three hours off every day like you're only in the you're in the stand every other hour it's not technically off, you're supposed to be training or you're on backup or you're doing shit but. So like you can do the math where you're like I'm getting paid twenty dollars an hour today I'm only in the stand for four. I'm getting paid fifty dollars an hour to be in the stand right now and then I get an hour up and you're just you feel like a fucking king and fucked me up even the attitude. Even the attitude of the patrons at the beach they like. There was no disrespect towards the lifeguards zero. Yeah. Because it was like it is you're at the beach like everyone was Jones Beach Guy really say like you get paid to go wherever you. Go on their day off and it's like Oh yeah that's like you gotTa. Have that attitude it's fucking the. We're going to talk more about, Long Island's not just me everyone who listens guys like are graded screaming about lifeguard. I. It's it's on my mind right now as I like reevaluate what I'm looking for in a career and a life, and as I haven't been going outside or doing stuff that frequently the last few months I fucking put my email address down on the La County lifeguards I'm like. Test is a forty. I'm going to be forty years old maybe I'll start lifeguarding. My wife is like, no, you have so many other things should be doing that with with your time on my bride biggest starts like bucks an hour. Here's the thing about here's the thing about working at the beach. You know when I worked there, I saw shit that I Would never imagine seeing. People fucking in broad daylight people flocking. People fucking in the bath house pool because like one corner of it like the Sun through the open roof throws one piece of shadow across one corner and and people like Oh nobody can see us fucking right here in this corner of the pool every day see shit like that like people having wild fights. Razi like calm lazy riot fights like like I've I've been involved in like I'm in a Speedo and me and four other lifeguards. Beefing with dudes and jeans drinking coronas bike and. Nineteen these are in their twenties, tattered it up long island up you know fucking traps and everything screaming at us and I'm like are we we about? Of course we're all nineteen year old. Yeah. Let's fucking fight these guys on the beach where it is still. A still ready to. Give someone a two piece on the beach of I have to. So I worked at mostly field six, which is like the most. Of the download on on the fields on Jones. Beach, it's the family beach and it was very sought after because you didn't have to like you didn't park across the causeway. You parked right at the beach and you just stepped out you're on the sand shortest parking and also the shortest beach of sand of all events ranch too. So it's like from parking lot to water. It's why it's the family beach. 'cause you gotTa Carry Eleven boogie boards and digging and Shit like that. So. That lot fills up by like eight am on the. We'd am like a fucking madhouse add to that that it's the end of like the of the official beach. If you just walk one hundred yards out past the dunes, that's where there's nude sunbathers. That's where there's all types of stuff going on. That was my first introduction to gay culture was like being one, thousand, nine hundred and hearing about field nine. Yeah, and I just didn't. There was a gay bar in Belmar called Pal Joey's, but we didn't know anything about it. I knew a couple of gay kids my school but the I I really learned about like a bunch of old gay men hang out there and they sunbathe and they and I'm like, yeah, and like all the fucking homophobe Hetero. Dudes are like, yeah you like see them fucking in the dunes and she's disgusting it's like what? We're fucking chicks in the shower here. No different. So we that parking lot filled up quick and what we had the system where we shut it drag. This like one of those where wooden horses across the Entry Way and we count cars until like fifty spots opened up, and then we let fifty in and then.

"Tick Tock were giving us the information we need but but in all seriousness I, expect a reporter to follow that quote up with. Well, you're correct that the virus has mutated. Once or twice however, the vaccines that are currently in production are expected to be effective against the mutations for these reasons that literally I learned that from watching a tick tock of a scientist researching vaccines like this is not the first time vaccine has been developed. You'd think so based on the way vaccines are talked about the history of vaccines has been by and large percentage. So highly effective that leaving room for this kind of doubt and skepticism is just so wildly irresponsible. Your thoughts are not expertise. There's no space for your thoughts to undercut the taking of a vaccine in the public. Discourse there just isn't no but please understand that this moment I'm criticizing the writer on the publication that let that quote sit there right like this is not a press release. This is not a succession of quotes from somebody this is a story and when when you print the quote that is patently false, you should provide context I'm saying this is the job. This is a double headed attache earlier this year you're going at one thing I'm going the other both messed up. So moving on, you know there's a lot of quotes here. This is the kicker. This is the real good stuff. Novak was asked about the tour, of course. said. I've done anything bad to be honest. I do feel sorry for people that were infected. Do I feel guilty for anybody that was infected from that point onward and Serbia Croatia and the region of course not it's like a witch hunt be honest. How can you blame one individual for everything and so I think he he probably meant do I feel guilty for everybody who was infected in the region from from that point onward which I think changes the meaning of the quote quite a bit I'm giving him. A little bit of generosity either. But then you say witch-hunt like this is the language of a certain set of. Like. Why are you invoking that term first of all, when Gregor Dmitrov came back to the media spotlight after his bout with corona virus, he expressed whether or not a was sincere he expressed regret and guilt for people that he may have been responsible for infecting. Right he said he couldn't live with the idea that he could have hurt other people. This is the opposite of that. This is literally gave you the template right and again like you can not believe Grigore when he says that that's your prerogative this is quite the opposite of that and I just I have trouble understanding this approach I understand that Novak may feel that he's always been on the backfoot. With the media and certainly there's a group of his fans who feel that he is consistently persecuted. That's what this quote tells me right without what this quote tells me is that he also believes that yet what he's also conflicting medio with fans bright and people who aren't friends of a lot of this is coming from regular tennis fans who are not having to to.

"US Open, and folks who talk about the US Open try to steer as far away as possible from acknowledging the Long Island -ness of it. Like it's always New York Manhattan it. So glamorous it. So this You know the just embrace lean in Long Island like technically queens itself is on long. Island just deal with it. They've tested everybody about fourteen hundred people on the Cincinnati bubble. There was one positive test, which I actually think was not bad one, hundred, fourteen, hundred, not it turned out. According. To Sebastian talk of Leeann from Argentina it was Juan Manuel Galvan who is the physio of Gedo Paella, and because of close and prolonged contact Paella Hugo, del Yen, and pillows. Coach Jose Acasuso were all removed from Cincinnati they must isolate for. Reports about this I've read twelve days of ten days, but they have to isolate because they were in close contact with the person who tested positive as far as how the actual on-site stuff is working. We've seen a lot of videos with players in these corporate suites. It appears that the top thirty, two seeds on both sides of the draw have been granted, gifted bestowed upon these luxurious suites that they can. They can stay in while on site naturally living out of those sweets but you see videos of players waving to each other hitting balls to each other across the court. Nearly Sokha sweet is apparently besides Stephanos. Sweet it's made for for some entertaining content I have not enjoyed any of it. So it hasn't been entertaining to you, correct. Okay. Right. Switching gears for a minute Christopher Clarissa secured this zoom scoop with Novak Djokovic Zoom. Scoop riot. Oh my God. That dates us a lot. So. The New York. Times posted a interview with Novak, Djokovic with which clary conducted over Zoom Novak is here you know he was asked about everything was asked about his position on vaccines about his decision to come to the US Open about what he did during quarantine, and of course, this made the rounds on tennis twitter. But if you expected Novak to come to Long Island after all the missteps of the spring and summer with words that would kind of make up for some of it in some way you would have been disappointed. I quote I, see that the international media has taken out of context a little bit saying that I'm completely against the vaccines of any kind my issue here with vaccines. If somebody's forcing me to put something in my body that I don't want for me, that's unacceptable. I'm not against boxes of any kind because who am I to speak about vaccines when there are People that have been in the field of medicine saving lives around the world indeed exactly. Indeed it's it's you've got it there. You got it. I'm sure that there vaccines that have little side effects that have helped people and help stop the spread of some infections around the world. Well, yes they're. They're handmade polio, some incredibly destructive Disease Eradication Fund, the planet imagine that. And I can guarantee that he has all those vaccines. I I should say I want to remind you that we were not part of the international media that claimed he was against all vaccines. Correct. We said at the time that this is translated it is unclear if he means he is skeptical of this hypothetical vaccine or all vaccines that was not clear but we also said and we were clear about this point that him offering those words even if prompted did nothing to help anybody will right I'm talking about a vaccine that literally does not exist. He goes on to say how are we expecting that to solve? Our problem when this corona virus is mutating regularly from what I understand. So here's my problem with this I'm going to switch gears from Novak and I'm going to take aim at the journalist and the editor that allowed that to sit there because I expect more from journalism who is a journalist Clary okay and edited the peace and let it go to print out the new. York. Times I expect more from journalism. When someone says I think the virus is mutating and vaccines will not be effective I expect a journalist to look at I don't know Google Tick Tock..

So much has happened in tennis since we were last on air. It was a challenge to put together an agenda that was coherent and timely because the moment you put something on paper or something else happens tennis has been moving at a frantic pace as everything's started to come back to life yet, we've had our first official events since March starting in Italy and then in Prague, and Kentucky, the hasn't resumed yet, but they will tomorrow in Cincinnati having playing qualifying in Cincinnati before we get into what's been happening just a quick note to thank you all for reaching out regarding or last episode it was to be Cliche a Labor of love and we are that you enjoyed it.

On its website for a little while this is where we get a bit sanctimonious about it. We have always tried to pronounce names properly we have often failed. We will continue to try and it's easier. No because we have all the tools at our disposal. It's in the trying. And while I don't expect us to get it one hundred percent right all the time we did spend about fifteen minutes today going through player pronunciations that we'd be talking about on this show. Now, what just fail I know you really setting us up. To be mocked here. But the point is that commentators very often do not try at all. No not that they can't make those sounds with their mouths is that there's not even really an attempt to to put emphasis on the right syllable or any of that like listen after this was announced and folks started to be aware of these pronunciations being available. There was a British commentator I don't know who it was who went with Mutuel. So you know there's being wrong and then there is making a making an attempt to be in the general vicinity.

"Yeah I wanna you know and we kind of brought out a little bit over hockey and acting and and that was my first job so what I ended up doing those like I can't move back home my parents after Undergrad like after getting away and living on my own and my where you living on your own in the city so in the city so we got a after you see the suit job carried you into getting a Manhattan apartment. Never took the job. Oh you took it right into to the bartending job right right this bartending job believe it or not got me into the city because I was commuting by car to your mom's house but no what I decided to do because I'm independent and now I've lived alone is I'm not living at home. I got a job that pays me money me and my friends got a six person person loft in the financial district. That was a city block. Mom and one window was on Water Street and one windows on Pearl Street Watt Watt listeners a gutted three story walkup Loft G. This thing was huge like could like if somebody was at the other end of the lofty the you could not even know you were they were home and we were all poor college kids but very like you know. I don't know just like feeling no like we could do anything and we're like we live here. We're to build walls and we're going to build rooms that we're GonNa fucking live in Manhattan. You know doing the math on the ranch. It's only it's only gonNa be six hundred dollars. Each a month. We get six or seven people in here. That's going to work and we literally brought sheet rock. 'n fucking two by fours up a three story walkup in Manhattan and built rooms rooms and six of US lived in this in this apartment and I reverse communication with my car from New York City to Long Island to work his job aw city living in a loft bartending at a fancy Italian restaurant online economically sound and so I'm paying aim for a spot at South Street seaport to then drive to Long Island now the only good thing is because it was a restaurant I was off peak rush hour right so you're driving there at three in the afternoon to noon four in the afternoon and then come back home after twelve from long island to the city because that's what most people everybody commutes. That's just like a total lake. I think that's just like the metaphor my life. Everyone commutes from Long Island to the city but I know the city too long to think outside the walks here and make my life harder. That's pretty much everything. What were you getting the benefits of the city where you're getting go out in the city on your nights off daytime getting and be a DH it was it was six of us? We all went to college together. Some people were from the area people weren't everybody was kind of hustling jobs just to be able to live in the city. You know obviously there were six of us so right. It was early affordable. I live three people in a two thousand square foot loft with my bedroom was above the dining room and we had pods like you had to co op ladder but you couldn't stand up in my room and the dining room so we split we split split the Lockton half the long way the worst way. That's another thing like I feel like that's such a New York. City is like they encourage you to split rooms and put up walls and you like this. This is the studio office you could split it so it's like okay could fit a twin bed. Yeah sure that makes sense. Let's do that like city kids look. I know no way you're saying. I want their like landlords. I WanNa get twenty four hundred dollars for this apartment. I know you two guys can't afford it but I'm okay. If you throw a third guy there and everyone only has paid money I want and if you're going to build a room when you guys leave up when three people in effort three thousand and they add to it and they're like you know what I gotTa Wall Guy to. If you needed to worry he'll come in. Put it in take it out. When you leave many scale? It's unreal but yeah so that was my first thing but what I made so much money at this restaurant. It was like God man. I was so stupid with it so the only downside of this gig was it was they wanted to have a really family feel so you had to work every day because they didn't want people to come in and not know you so I had to work six days a week this restaurant Ron but that's also coin. I was getting if you're getting six shifts a week and I was making so much money getting upset so what I would do is I would fly to Miami Miami on my day off on Sunday just because I had to work six days a week like it was stupid stupid. I'll put it let me let me live in New York. City the and actually enjoy myself you put away a bunch of savings and now you're not a dollar a working dollar. I was so stupid with that. I was making so much money like I had been making six figures as a twenty two year old talking like six days a week light tax laws there with the cash hash tips. I know it's one of those things like why did I do that for ten years and Baya fuck in apartments. I'm going you know I have to be an actor. GonNa live in fuck in the financial district of five my buds. It's the only way I'll be happy. You know it's so funny actually because so I ended up quitting wedding because it's not about the money man I wanna be an actor dude. This is not going to work for me you know and my boss who is the owner who really liked me but owned multiple on this whole. All these restaurants was like what are you doing. You want to be an actor and on my yeah yeah yeah you know and he's like I don't know what you're doing.

The bartenders make the cocktail menus and then go and live another two months somewhere else so they were opening in places like Miami Puerto Rico Vegas Chicago. No I WANNA be an actor. This guy looked at me like I was fucking Outta my mind and I probably was but again hindsight you're like I could just knowing how the business works. I could've waited one year and that would have been the best experience on my shirt and I would be no different my career would be I no no it's true I did the exact same show so I know all about it's so true and I I had that fear that if I did it if I did anything like that and it and it was successful that I'd never come back you know get comfortable with the money in the lifestyle and I never really do it and whether that's true or not who knows but that was like my fear so I was like Nope Nope nope but it was weird because this dude respected the hell because he probably thought I was crazy dedicated to the fucking stupid idiot you know because everybody you know like those those owners that have all the money all they have all days guys that want something from them right so like when they have a guy that doesn't want anything from them like they don't know hot girl that everybody's chasing them. My turn advise them shit and you're like no. I'm good and they're like yeah you neg them. Exactly also Long Island Guys Long Island people when of all genders and especially in the restaurant is all they talk about is money all they care as people are so I I was a bartender at the the Hofstra bars I worked for like two nights a week all summer in the off in their off-season like our when I was home in the winter in the summer and all they talked talked rows Braga three twenty five cash last night and I'm like fog.

You're just like all right. Yes 'cause 'cause you're maintaining your mental health doing that other ship I it took me until last year to like think even consider why I was like miserable like and then I started going to therapy started making sure I exercise making sure I did things that made me feel. uh-huh better terrain started drinking and I was like Oh okay so the business beat me up a lot but I was also not mentally fully unloaded are fully equipped to be fighting it. Yeah I kind of a lot of people feel that way right you just like I'm so overwhelmed by the business and then like build up some of your own personal tools of happiness and mental health and then all of a sudden you're like okay. It is beating me up but it's not destroying me. I'm allowing myself to be destroyed by to know for sure.

I start to need something more than like the the possibility of a Sitcom over my head I know but it and it's weird too because it is one of those those industries stories where it can happen you know in a can like Hana change overnight where at least like ceiling is is kind of you know is kind of highly. There is opportunity a tune in there but yeah. I'm just trying to like I said I think I'm just better at the day to day like okay. This is what I am all in. This is what I do right you know how do I do it and and also maintain like some kind of sanity and Mental Focus Happy Happy Happy. What is that like? You know no now I want more. I like everyone else in this world. It's fucking as we all want more weight. So where. Where did you grow up that you played in Freeport are you? I mean so so I grew up in east meadow east met. Did you go to division or did you go. I went to I went to San Jose Grammar School. Then I went to woodland junior high school and then I asked my parents is sick. I am to go to Catholic school because the hockey because of the hockey team what what to Calemburg Calemburg. Oh okay cool so as crazy as that is at least to the Co ed one. Oh Yeah Yeah I don't think I could I could have did so Shamanov was like the sister school that was all boys and it was a it was where drew the line. 'cause I went to Catholic College. I went to marriage with Thai so everyone there was Catholic and or most people were Catholic or at least not Jewish so every long island personnel was there was from Calemburg Holy Trinity and Chamonix the three yeah yeah wasn't seen Anthony's like a hockey school to or yeah I think they because I think like they had a team. They weren't as like you're right yeah. They were kind of in the mix is to they weren't kids who were like in public school. Where like I hoping my parents let me go to Saint Anthony's because I wanNA keep playing hockey because it's not like a the public high schools don't have hockey ice hockey? It was like a weird thing like hockey in general the sport like because it originated in Canada like all like kind of the even like age wjr groups and restrictions and all that stuff is so different but yeah so that was like the first step was like Catholic school and then I also play travel hockey right and then at that point I was planning on like so many many teams that I that I mean Freeport you just were playing all over long island basically right yeah and of course like I went home not too long ago and Eisenhower Park built a two two to rink facility in the middle that is where the islanders now practice and it's like five minutes from my house and my mom's like you gotta be kidding me. I had to drive you. all those years ringcraft yes so I grew up there and then east meadow was so small. It's a funny you said is now look back to when I first started on the Bellmore Merrick central the high school district Swim Teams Swim Swim team like hockey not that popular needs a big piece of equipment to play it you not allow schools are equipped with pools so oh it was mapam. Calhoun Kennedy and Grand Avenue Junior High End Merrick avenue junior high all rolled into one sports you the eleven guys nine guys we practice at the freaked center for like my freshman through sophomore junior year and then Eisenhower Park where because they were having the goodwill games they're open that huge like lost leaders pool facility yeah I remember our practices switch. There and I remember my mom being at least not the giant Freeport every morning before school. Oh Yeah Oh that's fun get in the water six. Am I can't believe that all the time now if you told me like exercise is it six. AM before I'd be like fuck you worse I today I had to push back are one. PM appointment because I got a late start on getting to the gym Ah Thirty Thirty because at the gym and I have two more sets of the timing is just not going to work well. Yeah I mean I remember that too. That was awesome. I mean it's still there is no mark up like yeah they can do long course and then it can get divided down into two short courses which is just like the whole the whole array of diving boards had platforms like solid ones to ready for Olympic Games Commonwealth. I'm an wealth games are goodwill games one of those two if you sound one hundred dollars on the street. Would you pick it up up or would you keep walking of course you take the money. Hey I'm walking here with one hundred dollars. I just picked up Swan. You keep picking winners and not betting on them. That's why I go to mybookie. It's fast. It's easy and they pay when you win. Let's face it when you're just betting is just as important as who you're betting on. I do the smart thing if you're going to bet this football season season which is fun that with my bookie. Did you know you could bet on Games after kickoff in the second half. It looks like your bed is GonNa lose. You can always just take the other side. I you know hedge it a little. If the Kinda guy that likes to bet a little and win a lot you're the type of person that likes to bed a little and win a lot..

I'll stab you did so this was just beyond dysfunctional. Megan was a really unhappy child. She was angry and resentful from feeling like she wasn't getting what she deserved in life when she was in junior high uriel moved the family from downtown portland to scarborough which she's pretty much a nice area nice suburb lotta wealthy people there but they had a trailer on the western side of town in the trailer park. The single wide mobile home fourteen by seventy feet with three bedrooms and meghan felt resentful. Why do these other kids at school have more than her. She decided bright away that most of the people in scarborough were snobs and because meghan cape from trailer park she was identified as white trash. She started in regular classrooms but she suit was transferred to special ed it. When she started scarborough high school the following year she was putting the alternative part of the school for treble treble kits on many many occasions meghan was caught shoplifting from walmart and she ended up the youth center which is a jail for young offenders unders. She was released but sued caught carrying drug paraphernalia saw she was eventually forced to juvenile rehab seventeen. Gene megan stopped going to school as she did continue to live at home with muriel. She started working these low paying jobs. She got picked up by police a few times time for shoplifting and possession of alcohol then when she was seventeen megan found out she was pregnant. Father was a thirty two year old d._j. Who you may have met at a club in portland. It has sex in the bathroom. It's sad it really is a judge. In youth court ordered megan stay at saint andrews a home for unwed mothers from the length of pregnancy it just as a side note. I worked there for quite a while. Taking care of pregnant teens needs what are rewarding job. I really enjoyed it. I mean most of these young women were really trying hard to get better lives in a lot of them came from a lot of shit so was a great place but anyway meghan header baby girl in the summer of two thousand six and named her liliana when she went home to muriel's trailer. She seemed different. She seemed determined to straighten up her life for her baby but meghan began to feel some new pressure in a lot of disappointment the money she got from the state wasn't enough to feed and clothe her and the baby and she didn't want a future of living off government checks like her mom and grandmother had done meghan wanted wanted to give her daughter a better future but she made the wrong decision on how to reach that goal because she ended up buying ads on craigslist and working as an escort. You know what i bet a lot of that is because she didn't have guidance if your parents grandparents have never gone to college or really been able to do a lot in the outside outside world. How are they going to advise you to do that. So it's really a disadvantage just as much as poverty is that's for sure yeah. I think it's not just the money since the ease of making the money well yes the ease of the money but in the long run it's it's not easy any you're pretty life at risk when you're seventeen or whatever amount of money as an easy way to do it well well. I don't like the word easy it's acquai- there aren't as many steps to take is going to college filling out job applications going interviews. Who but i'm saying is assist nobody who taught her how to do that anyway so she was really on her own anyone to say right and these girls seem like they were smart smart girls for the most part who could have accomplished a lot of things so it's just really the whole disadvantage that comes with poverty. It's a lot more than just not having the money. It's it's not having a lot of things that can help you succeed in adulthood so i think megan's case is really a sad one four while sure logan's boyfriend usually accompanied her to meet clients but she was convinced to meet a client alone on the night that she disappeared just as the other young women had now. Can i just ask a question about these boyfriends who drive them there. What the fuck is with that driving just the driving but why would you take your girlfriend have sex with men and then use that money not feel bad about it. That's a good question yeah. This five asking her probably messed messed up the same way. Okay i mean two of these girls. Headway twins actually the other one into he called did have a boyfriend of some india boyfriends. She drives them to their dates. Excuse me i know well not only that they do it but me as a woman men if my boyfriend had said yeah. I'll drive you out there. So you could be an escort or you could give blowjobs or whatever the details of it were. I'd be well fuck you buddy buddy. Why would i want to go out with someone that wants to do that. That doesn't think enough of me. It's almost like sure very close to that yeah. I guess they don't take his highest percentages pinpoint but still it's disturbing so the last victim we wanna concentrate on today is maureen. Maureen brainard entered barnes who was twenty five years old and she was from norwich connecticut. She was last seen in july of two thousand seven marine marine <unk> story. She dropped out of school when she was sixteen and pregnant. She never went back by the time she disappeared that she had two children. Each of the different father when she was unable to afford our own apartment marina would stay at his sister's place for a while now or in moved into an apartment in orange connecticut was paid for her by her son's father. Maureen told her friends might be independent and onerous yeah well. She was never a girly girl. I guess but she developed early and was noticed by the boys in school. At a young age she had been with her boyfriend away from jason brainard barnes for just six months when she got pregnant with her first child he esther to marry him and she said yes and they had a small ceremony at the courthouse us in nineteen ninety nine and that was after mauri gave birth to their daughter a jason's grandparents place and then they moved down south outs for two years when jason join the army but after they returned to connecticut hit the marriage fell apart marine ended up moving in with her sister missy and mris children who lived in a low income housing development missy was the more practical sister but maureen was the one that everybody just adored. She was a dreamer in a romantic. So some parts of reality were hard for her to accept the best job she had as a card dealer at foxwoods casino ended ended in a little less than a year when she started calling in sick too much for a while she delivered pizzas and she worked registered a local drugstore but but then she started leaving her daughter with missy and going out on the town worried was an excellent writer thou and she filled multiple notebooks with poetry rap lyrics and and there's a book that i'm going to tell everyone about at the end of this episode where they actually have some of her writing in it which was really very good. I was impressed with her writing in two thousand and three marine was twenty one and she had a four year old daughter no job and no place of her own to live her music and songwriting wasn't giving her the attention that she'd hoped for she'd been using my space to market her music and to network with some other rappers and that's when she came across some ads for modeling. She got a friend to take some photos for it. She were a few different dresses in alesi nightgown in the photos but i mean they were far from pornographic or he got dozens of emails for places claiming to be legitimate modeling agencies but after a few clicks flex they would turn out to be hiring nude models only or they would be escort services in disguise aka prostitution rings so well clicking taking on some of these links maureen did notice how much money she could make a sex worker or an escort but she didn't wanna share the money with an agency so on craigslist maureen saw women who posted ads independently and she won't jay. That's a good idea so she began to advertise her services online and the money she earned was more than she could earn at any of the jobs that she was qualified to do over the next few years she would leave the sex trade for months at a time so she was trying to get away permit but she was always drawn back in by the money so when she went to meet that client that lasts day she'd been served in a fiction notice and she was really desperate sprit to make some money and he had convinced her to come out meet him and he was going to pay fifteen hundred dollars shoes last seen in july two thousand seven saint as she planned to spend the day in new york city after her disappearance a friend of hers named sarah cars received a call from a man from from an unknown number man claimed that he had just seen maureen issues alive staying at a whorehouse in queens he refused to identify himself and he can until sarah the location of the house told her he would call her back and give her the address but never called again. Let this just turned out to be someone who was a sicko so i guess because she wasn't whorehouse in queens we know that might have been the killer yeah. No one has suggested that that was to kill her but that's possible yeah the phone well. We don't know it was an unknown number so it wasn't marines thumb. Where did he get the number. I don't know maybe it was listed and with the other girl he actually used the missing girls phone yeah for her. Would he know burner phone. How would he know oh. I don't know that's a good point. He must've had some kind of knowledge of renew. Them could be someone who just need them. In june june of two thousand eleven the suffolk county police raised the reward for information leading to an arrest in these murders from five thousand dollars to twenty five thousand dollars dollars which was the largest reward ever offered.

When she was sixteen she started charging some some of the neighborhood boys for sex amber got a reputation when a rumor went around the che's spreading gonorrhea into the boys <hes> uh she reached adulthood became addicted to drugs continued to work in sixth <unk> whenever disappeared she was living with a male friend named day schaller collar. She worked as an escort prostitute getting her clients through backpage dot com dave last saw her when she left their home to meet a client she she'd gotten this call from a stranger they negotiated over sex and agreed at a much higher than usual price of fifteen hundred dollars so this offer it was just irresistible to amber she was addicted to heroin and she was supporting herself through prostitution so she threw caution to the wind that night and she headed out alone and sadly she would never return for safety reasons she'd been using dave cell phone to set up dates and that evening dave would remember. The man called her three or four times but she seemed to feel comfortable with him now his last call to hurricane at ten thirty p._m. And she left the house wearing a pink hoodie at a pair of jeans. Dave amber took risks but as a close friend he learned to accept it. S amber described yourself to southern del pictures should have to teach young women green eyes brown hair. I am who go buy new every few days in order to keep yourself at the top of the adult services session as she got now call to hotel or house. David usually drive her in wait outside in his car. More often clients who come to their house in that case could wait in the next throw them while there have been times when men did threaten violence in david had to intervene amber was so tiny. She was four feet eleven in weighed about one hundred pounds but she was tough. She wasn't afraid of too much on the morning of september. Third amber hadn't gotten back home. Dave called her her sister but the sister told him not to worry because that's just amber. She takes off all the time so he waited. You know it's just so sad because of for lifestyle. No one in her family reported her missing or even looked for they pretty much given up on her which is so sad. She was only twenty seven years old. Yeah somehow the killer convinced amber to be alone. She was experienced and she should know better but at the same time he offered a lot of money and consumed put her at ease. Don't forget she had a drug habit. I now but i would think that that persistence in that offer of so much money would be a red red flag to her probably should've been it's like too good to be true type of thing yeah yeah and at the same time thinking well. What can i buy drug roadways with this anonymity right. I mean fifteen hundred dollars is a lot of money that could get you through a couple of weeks. It could pay rent to get her drugs so so money went out over reason and i'm sure the killer new this right i mean of course he knew that these women are desperate for money in peru princi- and if he's an educated soft spoken man he could probably put them at ease and offer them so much money money they can't resist and then murdered them. Another one of these victims was from portland maine. Her name was megan waterman. She disappeared in june of two thousand ten and she was last seen leaving a holiday inn. Express now a really interesting thing about that is that is that this was the same hotel where a client had asked amber costello to meet him. Just a few weeks before amber was killed but amber had refused to do that that time so so it turns out. It's probably the same man megan was the youngest of these women that was murdered. She was just twenty two years old and she left behind a four a year old daughter. She'd been raised by her grandmother. Muriel new real had raised her own six children on around in downtown portland maine in early early on muriel had decided that her daughter lorraine was the bad one so lorraine became black sheep of the family but the designation wasn't completely honored because lorraine did get a lot of trouble she'd been on her own for a month when she met megan's father greg g-o-v and these two really didn't have anything in common common but laredo never had a boyfriend before so she was really into him and within a month they moved in together. They rented a room in a dodgy section of portland shortland. Then they ended up staying in a days inn and westbrook renting a room by the week lorraine had begun to drink a lot after getting together with gregg and then the relationship became very volatile and he became physically abusive then became pregnant she left with gregg but returned to him when they had their first baby and that was a boy who they named greg junior. They broke up again when she was eight months pregnant with their second can daughter and that was meghan and that pregnancy advanced. She quit her job at burger king and she got on welfare. When meghan was born she had an elevated billy remained level and that's something that needs to be monitored learning was supposed to bring the baby back for a follow up tasks but she kept avoiding the social workers didn't follow the thrill so mural became alarmed at the state could find the rain finally she learned megan was in the hospital with respiratory distress stress and that's when <unk> plant custody of nagin. Saint laurent was <unk> mother. She's an incident newborn and elevated khalil. Ruben levels are pretty common. Use it to no degree of concern while because it's easily treated to recognize go to do right and that's why she needed to bring the baby back for recheck exactly so when babies are going they have more red blood cells in the need once i started breathing with lungs so the red cells have broken down. One of the byproducts of the breakdown is billy. She's a yellow pigment. Now that's supposed to be metabolized by the liver but a newborn sliver isn't always up quite up to the task so you get really ruben staying in the blessed and that's what gives the the orangey yellow skin color to the days by itself is not a concern but if some of the duly ruben the billy room that's not bad any proteins and can cross into the brand cause brain damage so that's the concern yes so in the old days baby baby stick it break damage called curvatures so as long as you recognize it and the treatment is simply put into maybe i'd nadu looks fluorescent arrested lights. Metabolize billy room kind of worst case scenario is very high. You can do a transfusion and exchange moore blood cells which is pretty rare. It is yeah i mean i. I did a few back in the day but had than any. Your head wanted to do any new duties for about thirty years at the time. I retired so well that's because it's routinely checked something something. The sorts of protocol sport sharon should not ever happen provided his foul ups this concern back when they well then she ended up with respiratory distress and you don't know much more about how that happened. Do you want to add anything about newborns in respiratory distress. I know that could be many different causes too generic term so respiratory distress could be infection his cousin her lungs to have problems heart disease that makes you breathe fast could be other diseases that is so many things so respiratory distress us generic term for what happens with the baby while ya but with a newborn there really is blood work that needs to be done in a case like that virtues in the hospital so presumably shoes being tested for those possibilities way at by the time she was in the hospital but i just wonder how far that baby got before before she ended up in the hospital because it seems like lorraine was pretty careless not really on top of things so this there's another case. I guess i'm just saying that. I give the grandmother credit. I think she did the right thing yeah so we know that the state has foster care ready for these emergency situations situations so when little meghan left the hospital she along with her brother greg were taken from lorraine and placed in foster care but muriel would drive arrive every sunday morning to visit the babies. They were about an hour away. Lorraine was supposed to go with them but muriel said they could never find her. Silvio began to bond with her grandchildren and was kind of like a mother a grandmother she befriended the foster family and ask for more time with the two babies she. She wanted them all the time three months into foster care family. Let muriel keep the babies for the entire week. Rain will come round from time to time. She wasn't reliable. Bureau grew presenter has did the children as i got older. <unk> will really love the children rain sister. Mr has acknowledged that government support play a part in bureau's decision to take her youngest son is turning eighteen. She'd be losing state aid so so as she is in the care of her grandkids should get assistance n._s. One of the first thing she did when kids came to our house to live with two by for assistance sure well no. I mean if she loves them and she needs the state to take care of them. Were power to her. Her government misspent money on a lot stupider things than taking care of children so i'm all for that so muriel raised meghan inner brothers. If they were her own children's their father greg did visit the children per a few years but then he left town and disappeared on them lorraine did see them too but only when neural but allow it and this this was appointed contention you know there was some not great relationship things going on between mural and lorraine so many of megan's closest friends as she got older david know that she had a mother and those that knew knew that meghan hated her but megan had quite the childhood. She was not what an easy child she wasn't. She was pretty hostile out of control first time the police recall voter was when she's in first grade how about that ah leasing bridge connecting some buildings thirty feet above the sigua and she climbed over the railing when pack.

"The women had done strangulation. Each of these victims had really difficult. Livestock died young so at like to go over a couple of their situations. Melissa barthelemy was twenty four years old. She'd been missing for year and a half winter. Body was found melissa came from a small town near buffalo new york four she attended beauty school and she moved to new york city to work as a hairstylist but melissa began working as an escort new york after her mother other lynn had not heard from her for several days in mid july of two thousand nine. She began calling everyone. She could think of searching for melissa. Lynn also so called the n._y._p._d. To file a missing persons report for three days the police refused to file the report because melissa was an adult and she had no history of mental l. Nece lynn even asked her attorney to get involved but the police refused to assign a detective to her case for quite a long time about a week later yeah melissa fifteen year old sister. Amanda got a call for melissa cell phone so she was excited. When she picked up the phone thinking melissa's finally calling thank god but it was really terrifying because it was a man on the other end of the phone so that was quite shocking remember. This is a fifteen year old girl who sisters missing so this man was described as emotionless softspoken any said horrible things to amanda about what he did to her sister in what he wanted to do <music> her making threats to her police would grow to believe that this caller was the killer. Amanda received eight costs from him. Her mom lynn spoke to him on one of these calls any claim to be from the n._y._p._d. Asking her if she had filed a missing persons report but for the most part these calls were aimed at terrorizing amanda and verizon eventually able to trace his calls to the manhattan area but he always hung up before could get further identification n._y._p._d. Believes this man was the long island serial killer. His voice led investigators to believe that he was a white male. In his twenties to thirties criminal profile is believed the he will continue to kill women until he was stopped pointing tusa usa colleges in profiler skype on based on the principles of behavioral profiling loan island serial killers most likely a white male. He's probably married or has girlfriend. He's well educated technologically adept and well-spoken. You could even be quite charming harming. He's financially secure has reliable job in a car truck and some people have considered that the killer could be employed in law enforcement because the phone calls were made from crowded places lasted less than three minutes. That's not just knowledge known to police officers who force mental now not nowadays. Everybody watches crime shows and knows a lot about it and they're also some sense. He was familiar with how the investigations institutions unfolded yeah. It did seem that way but that doesn't mean that he has to be law enforcement. It's a possibility but if he'd been killing for all these years ears. He probably had some knowledge about what he was doing because he'd been getting away with it for a long time. They believe he doesn't currently live on or near ocean parkway away on the south shore of long island and they think he's very familiar with the area though and may have once lived there. He's a very careful and meticulous person i and knows how to cover his tracks. He could have lived in manhattan because that's for the calls to amanda came from any may have been a long island summer visitor so so maybe he was a summer person to of the defining characteristics of this type of psychopathic serial killer are compulsive or or a cyclical violent behavior and the ability to blend back into their so called normal lives between the killings and this guy seemed to have a definite ammo. Oh and his victims had a lot in common mostly sex workers in their twenties in shannon gilbert's case her skeletal remains were found in a marsh so investigators believed that she drowned there or succumb to the elements just a short time after she met joe brewer but brewer was cleared as a suspect suspect in the case as well after a state autopsy in december of two thousand fourteen the cause of shannon's death was determined to be inconclusive so she was never included on the official list of the serial killer victims but then there was a new autopsy performed by former new york medical inspector michael baton. He was hired by mary. Mary actually raised some money to hire him and he said there was evidence that she was possibly strangled making her possibly the eleventh victim but his findings are based on two missing horns and shannon's highway bo so onto discuss that with you a little bit let's move the hieng is alone in the neck right yeah kind of like a horseshoe shape when we often hear about in people that strangles the higher bone has been fractured by the strangulation so it hasn't body and has two pairs of horns any torn is called a corno which is the latin word for horn the greater and lesser horns us to the body of a higher on between forty and sixty usage usage. Non fusion has been found even after the age of sixty because shannon was in her twenties. We have to wonder if the missing horns really in kid strangled. Pro-moscow remains coverage right. So what do you think about that. I mean remember we're. He was hired by shannon's mother. Who is very sure that shannon was murdered so there's a little bit of pressure there for him to go in that direction his findings as the body of the higher was broken now. He's basing all his findings on horns that are asking yes. I mean it is defense. I think you said possibly strangled. He didn't say that she was strangled. Attorneys to the salmon played it up as the topsy was mishandled an she really was strangled exactly so. I don't know if that's that solid of evidence to me. It's pretty weak but at the same time do i really think that a woman in her twenties out there drown in a swamp in the marsh. I believe i believe that more. If i was more positive that she was acting under the influence of some direction and find maybe a little more believable yeah yeah. It's tough for otherwise healthy woman to do that right. And why would you take your clothes off so you've got the excuse of maybe her jeans got alouette okay but why would she take your shirt off and when she put her shoes back on surface didn't get caught up so it really is still a mystery what happened to shannan wouldn't when i would not think so. I think we really don't know what happened to her. Now hurry break time. It's your responses okay..

"Let's just easier kinda dumb shannon on the social system while i hate to use the word dump there were certainly some issues with marion her mother medications of bipolar disorder have a fair amount of side effects probably at least heff pupils to take the medication at one time or another stuff ticking because services yeah. I know it's tough when you have a kid with something like that but but i think when they're twelve you related to be pretty prudent about making sure they take their medicine or yes. He entered his birt's. Mom's parenting in schools yeah and i don't want to demonize the mother because she had a lot to deal but let's say the home life was far from ideal the description so mary said shannon was out of control but other people had a different story shannon told friends that are mom cared more about her boyfriend's than she did about her on children and according to sherry her sister shannon and mary's boyfriend didn't get along and shannon was sent away because of him. She said that mary was oblivious to the abuse that her boyfriend perpetrated on them and she only learned about it when the girls spoke up years later but within that point. Mary did support her daughters when they accused him so you have to give her credit for that he went to jail ended up dying few years later in france shannon was a smart friendly energetic very talented young lady that marry with shannon's biggest pro- wpro growing up she graduated from high school moved away from ellen ville shannon lift with her grandmother for awhile and actually begin taking nursing in classes she worked at a hotel a restaurant chain and a secretary at a local school and then she dropped out of college in quit the secretarial equitorial job because it's too boring and then she left to grandma's house because they had arguments about staying out too late so this is kind of similar spiral tomorrow and i think that her grandmother really tried but it's hard to raise a kid is a grandmother. You know you're getting older. You don't wanna deal with all that. This girl hadn't had any structure before that right reading articles about that have more and more grandparents arisen. Her kids scrammed jude's yeah sugar. It ain't easy now. I i wouldn't wanna do it. I mean of course i would do it if it was necessary but that would be cia. There's a huge generation gap there too when you're talking about a grandparents raising a child about that but i certainly give the grandparents that do a lot of credit so shannon then moved to jersey city which was just across the river from manhattan that was in two thousand seven. She really wanted interview stage performer in new york and she planned to audition for singing and acting jobs and she also began taking college classes in psychology and in writing she was determined to follow her dreams and make a better life for herself and when she didn't get as many editions as she hoped for that's when things kind kind of fell apart for her she fell into the lure of making a lot of money and the only way she could earn that was working as an escort or a sex worker so she kind of saw that is her only option which is really sad but by working as an escort and making about five hundred dollars a night she did have more freedom to pursue auditions and she had enough money to support herself and help out her sisters so there was a good side to it at least the way she saw but i don't think she realized how dangerous it really was. You know not only physically dangerous getting her but i think it's psychologically dangerous to put yourself in that position. I think it would be really hard so at first shannon worked for an escort service. She met her. Oh boy friend alex dias through her job as an escort. He was one of the drivers they were really happy together and they were both earning pretty good money so they moved in together and things seemed it's pretty good but the escort business was busted by the police and then alex and shannon were both out of a job and after they lost their high paying jobs the relationship went right downhill they started fighting in alex became physically abusive. According to the arrest record alex hit shannon bannon so hard that he shattered her job she had to have surgery and a titanium plate was put it to her job so she had a long recovery period. Yes you did but nevertheless she stayed with alex struggling to pay their bills and then shannon decided to advertise yourself love on craigslist this way she believed she could eliminate the middleman. She can make her own hours and keep all the money sheared the driver. Yes sometimes alex was the driver but when he wasn't she hired a man named michael pack he would take shannon to meet with a client in he'd weighed in the car for her this way the client knew that she was brought there by someone so she was less likely to get beaten or ripped off. Alex dias the boyfriend his shannon good night on may first two thousand ten. This was a normal friday night working for her. Her driver that at night was michael pack. She got a call to go to a client at oak beach and this was a place you'd never been to before. She left at midnight to meet the client joe uh-huh brewer and after she ran off that night her family and friends never saw her again alex than the entire next day waiting for her to come home home. She never returned by sunday. He was worried enough to try calling her but her phone was shot so he didn't know what to do next. You knew drivers named michael pack but he didn't have a phone number for him. So finally he went through shannon's drawers and found a piece of paper with some phone numbers he i it's called michael who seems surprised to hear from him and alex was angry that the driver had abandoned her on long island. I think he was right about that. That was not a cool cool thing to do but michael told alex what had happened but nothing michael was saying about her behavior. That night sounded like shannon to alex. It thought it was all a little shady but michael was helpfully tried to help alex signed her so i think he did. At least he'll a little guilty about leaving her once he found out she he had made it home. Which of course any normal person would think yeah yeah yeah alison michael peck sounds six nearby hospitals online and four police stations the call them all you think shannon's name and a description over but no one has seen her so alex michelson connect him with the person who hired shannon spoke of job. You're over. The phone. Rural laughed at a basically saying huffman. It's your job. You should know she's at it got defensive when he was asked questions and historian sam believable alex michael since you've within a brewers house or three hours so why would a center off after that all the time gone by well. That's a curious part about it because that's a long time to be in his house and can you think of something was going to go wrong would have gone wrong sooner now. She didn't show any signs of being beaten according to michael but she was terrified she was hiding behind couch <unk> all your could you take something drugs or sudden. I suppose we don't know because she was never found so we i have no idea i mean going on what exactly so he could have given her some kind of drug she could have been on drugs dugs but according to alex now she used drugs. It's not like she never used drugs so she didn't normally act that strange when she took them could she. She had been having a bad trip well maybe but she was making a lot of sense really she wasn't saying random things so it's very curious what qader off to go running out that night he really is we know from what we know. She was okay on the trip out right. Yes exactly park. It didn't say anything was amiss now. He's sitting in the car waiting for me any problems into three hours into things and yeah exactly so together. Alex joe brewer went and filed a report the suffolk county police officers didn't seem to take them. I'm seriously though she was an escort a prostitute so they were giving her the kind of attention that they would give other people. There's always that biased biased that we've been through this before. Yes marginalize people when alex said he was from jersey city. They told him well anyway. You need to go file the report there there so the next day he did drive back out to oak beach with a photo of shannon and he made it to the gate where truck pulled up and stopped and a middle aged man dan hannah chunky but friendly got outta the truck alex notice she had a limb anna prosthetic leg anti introduced himself as dr peter hackett. The doctor listened to alex and wrote down. Some of what alex was saying in a little notebook he told alex he knew nothing about what had happened to shannan but he said we're going to help you out with this case i used to work with the police so we're going to call them and we're going to have this whole place searched and he was true to his word it because later that day helicopters were searching above oh beach but they found nothing on that search so that evening alex filed a missing persons percents report for shannon in jersey city. He also let her family know it was going on and he told the police that shannon was bipolar and she had been known to use cocaine marijuana in also some prescription drugs and harry yogurt. Mom had trouble remember all the details. She did say the doctor had called her in the days following shannon's disappearance. This was before she understood. The shannon was really missing and the content the phone call as she called. It was very strange. He said his name is dr. Peter hackett lived in oak beach long island and then he ran home for wayward girls and according to mary. He told her that he treated shannon. She left his house. That's odd it's very area and she said that she remembered him saying to her that he had seen shannon that night and that she was incoherent and he took her into his home to rehab her and then the next day he said a driver came and picked her up and then he asked mary if she had seen her since in eventually of course mary would be questioned about this. Call it hack it denied calling mary at first but she had insisted sherry was there for the call right next to her mom and she confirmed served marietta hurt and then hackett would later admit to the call but he never admitted to seeing or to treating shannon in any way fulmer provided exactly and there were neighbors. That said that he would treat them. He gave someone a steroid injection then he given people prescriptions so he did treat neighbors yay while he was a former your duck so he could do that. I don't know running a a rehab center while he claims to never said that and you know we don't have a recording of the cost so it could have been a misunderstanding on mary's mary's part but there are some things about hackett that are suspicious but over time there were others including his neighbors at a beach who believed that he did did know more about what had happened to shannon and then he would admit helped along by pressure from shannon's family. The search led authorities to find ten sets of human remains off ocean partway ten. That's just hard to imagine moving from.

Tell you what else is fucked up like in my extended family. There's a there's one very wealthy family and one very very middle class, maybe even lower middle class family, and they vote they both vote for Trump.
