How Can People Who Love Freedom Support Progressives?
"It's very, it's very interesting that the people of the freest, most affluent country in the history of the world would vote for progressives. Ruminate on why that might be why do people find Wilson and why do people find leftism in America? I understand around the world, but wouldn't Americans in their DNA recoil? You would think so. We had about a 20 year progressive trend that really started with Theodore Roosevelt. Taft and then of course Wilson really put it on. Well, those two were Republicans. And progressive. They were certainly different than Harding. There's no question about that. This is when you start to see a little bit of a shift in the parties.
San Francisco Voters Recall 3 Board of Education Members
"A small piece of hopeful news good news out of San Francisco, the city has voted decisively. This is the voters. More than 70%. In a recall vote to throw out three of the members of the city school board. And the vote was not close. Allison Collins recalled by 78% to 21% Gabriella Lopez, 74% to 24%. Falga moliga recalled 71% to 27%. So this is massive majorities liberal majorities have decided to give these three scoundrels the boat. So you might ask, what's going on in San Francisco? Well, by and large, the city school board has been in complete, has kept the schools in complete shutdown. And parents are getting increasingly restless. My kids aren't getting a proper education. They're essentially being cognitively deprived for the larger part of two years when other schools gonna open, but instead of focusing on that, what the city school board was focused on is renaming the schools. Apparently, these three characters were leading a drive to rename a whole bunch of schools in San Francisco. The Abraham Lincoln school, the George Washington school, the Thomas Jefferson school that Theodore Roosevelt school, the Robert Louis Stevenson school, Nepal revere school all renamed, and the decision to rename them was taken literally in seconds. Apparently they had a sort of a research committee, the school names advisory committee, they did no real research. They did basically Google and Wikipedia. And they just decided, Abraham Lincoln, yeah, you freed the slaves, but who cares? You know, he was the American Indians didn't do very well under Lincoln. Boom, he's gone. And this was the methodology. No debate, no consultation with historians, no effort to sort of do a balanced assessment. The only time a balanced assessment came up as somebody said, well, wasn't Malcolm X kind of a racist in the early part of his career, and they were like, yeah, but he got better later. So what we're not gonna read. We're not gonna take his name off the
Theodore Roosevelt Statue in NYC Covered Ahead of Move to North Dakota Museum
"This Teddy Roosevelt statue thing is just so infuriating. I was just reading about the other night I was, I don't know why when I heard they're literally covering up the statue like idiots like little like we're a bunch of little babies. We don't want your eyes to be exposed to the Teddy Roosevelt statue because of George Floyd. Okay. So they've got it all covered up now with tarps and scaffolding and they're going to relocate it to North Dakota. You know how big that statue is? You know how many well, look what we're in the middle of the prison fellowship campaign. You know how many Christmas presents and works good things that would do for people? The cost of relocating a statue like the Teddy Roosevelt statue from New York to what North Dakota all that just cost a couple $100, right? Whether you use UPS or FedEx. Morons.

Woke Mob Wants to Cancel Teddy Roosevelt
"Wow, what a difference 80 years has made. This is December 7th, 2021. It is the 80 year anniversary of Pearl Harbor and of course, Franklin del nor Roosevelt shepherded the nation through that very difficult chapter and I see a headline with the name Roosevelt in it that just seems for me to sum it up just sums up how unfit so many of our leadership really, really is today. The American museum of natural history is a place I have visited many times in my life. One of the joys of living in New York part time is to visit the museums and the restaurants and the theater and the just all the cultural things that New York City has to offer for 80 years. Enormous statue of Theodore Roosevelt has stood on the front steps of the American museum of natural history. Well, the woke crowd decided. They don't like it. It's a glorified, I think they say, I think it's colonialism. And. So they're taking it down. They're going to remove it. But it's not enough to remove the statue, the tribute to Teddy Roosevelt. That started receiving mounting frenzied opposition, particularly after George Floyd's murder, and I'm just trying as the New York Post described it. I'm trying to kind of connect the dots. Let's see. George Floyd dies in Minneapolis, let's take down the statue of Teddy Roosevelt. I mean, honest to goodness, will you make an effort to connect those dots
The History of US Presidential Transportation
"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time. The co name. It was given was r d two. It could seat four passengers and there was a small sleeping compartment. The interior was custom made for presidential use with leather seats. It was stationed at the anacostia naval airbase in washington. Dc until nineteen thirty nine and during that time it was never once used by the president to be fair. Fdr was in a wheelchair and getting in and out of an airplane especially a small amphibious plane was probably something that he wasn't keen to do however he did eventually take a flight the very first airplane flight by a sitting. Us president took place on january. Eleventh nineteen forty-three when franklin roosevelt flew on. The dixie clipper was a commercial boeing. Three fourteen clipper which was operated by pan. Am he flew fifty five hundred miles to the casablanca conference in morocco to meet with winston churchill and charles de gaulle. The flight was done in three stages any flu rather than took a ship because it was considered safer than risking german u boats in the atlantic after the trip the army air force didn't want to rely on commercial airlines for presidential transportation. They proposed the president. Use a modified. C eighty seven liberator express heavy bomber. The plane was dubbed the guess where to when the secret service reviewed the safety record of the plane. They rejected it. For presidential use. The plane was used for carrying the first lady. Eleanor roosevelt however on a trip to latin america. But it never carried the president. The secret service then approved a douglas. C fifty four skymaster which was a transport plane used in the war. It was named the sacred cow ended. Had sleeping quarters are radiotelephone and a lift for getting roosevelt in and out of the plane in his wheelchair. The only time you used it was to travel to the yalta conference in february of nineteen forty five. This plane is on display at the museum. At the wright patterson air force base outside dayton

Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.

Are we just going to have to get used to dealing with outbreaks?
"So one of the things that Australia has really relied on throughout the hall coronavirus pandemic sci-fi is lockdown as a way of getting a handle on what's happening and keeping cases to a minimum. We've seen that really happening in Victoria and a few days ago a special envoy from the World Health Organization was talking about how lockdowns shouldn't be the only sort of tool. That countries used to Cape a handle on the coronavirus and I think that some people in Victoria have sort of used those comments from the WHO as a reason to sort of say, we should be lifting Victoria's lockdown now but it's a bit more nuanced than that. Isn't it? This nuanced? We went into lockdown in March largely to stop the growing pandemic but also to allow the infrastructure for contracting testing to get into place, which is what the WHO, who say. There was an outbreak in Victoria now that I break in Victoria would have killed many many more people had they not to lockdown but in part the outbreak was due to a failure in contracting and testing at that time. So in many ways, they fulfilled whol criteria for lockdown, which is time to get your contact tracing and testing into shape, and in fact, through the second wave in. Victoria that's indeed what they've done some situation where Victoria New South. Wales are pretty XY Pixie in terms of unknown cases number of cases a day. Sorry Pixie. What the hell does that mean some kind of Scottish thing I grew up with meeting. You know roughly equal fair fair enough trying to get a new phrase into the Australian dictionary from Scotland. Anyway. Back to the point the point being. That, you said whereas in Victoria roughly equal and the argument is probably quite well made that there's not a lot of reason why you shouldn't have the restrictions roughly the same in both states the problem of Victoria is you don't WanNa let the break off suddenly because people will just start turning up on masters include a beach which means crowding into trams, etc, etc. so you've got up. Do fairly slowly and carefully, but the endpoint quite soon could be a similar situation to New South. Wales. But we've got to get used to and it's not a trivial phrase a new covid normal. We promised a few days ago that we were going to stop comparing new, south Wales and Victoria, but let's just do it one more time new south. Wales does seem to have like you say. Exceed Pixie level of similar levels virus to what we're seeing in Victoria or at least the confirmed cases that are coming through, and they don't have as many restrictions on them, and we do know as well that it's probably at least a year before we're going to have any kind of vaccine available to that sort of like what we're thinking of as being a trigger for going back to what we used to have as a normal life is what's happening in New South. Wales. Perhaps, a model for what Ustralia could look like over the next year. Well, I think West Australians queenslanders south. Australians would bridal a that because they've got almost nothing happening and they're saying, well, why should we have? Wills has belichick focused on new, south Wales and Victoria for the moment. But I think it is something that queenslanders and others need to be cognizant off is this something we should get used to what we're talking about here for people who don't live in New South Wales is an outbreak from GP clinic now, getting used to is different from getting complacent. So yes I think you gotta get used to the fact that there will be small outbreaks but what we should not do tolerate them and so they're. They're not to be tolerated and our behavior needs to change in the short to medium term which is. Continuing careful social distancing. I believe in new. South. Wales. It should be mandatory mask in public transport just as an extra layer of security. You don't seem to be going that way and really getting on top of outbreaks and people being prepared to get tested if symptoms are in areas where there are outbreaks and if we can do that, then we can cope with these outbreaks but we can't just say. Another outbreak. Let's move on. It's another outbreak. Oh, this could be the moment where this could be the hotel quarantine equivalent moment that we hadn't. In Victoria, whereas if we ignore it is going to get out of control. So get used to not really be able to deal with yes. But just quickly on that, we're talking about being able to be responsive to outbreaks but we see in Shepperton in regional Victoria, they had a the little outbreak happening there people have told to go on to get tested they've gone to go and get tested. They've done what's been asked but they haven't been. Able to access testing this huge queues, how are we going to be out of style up to these? Well, that's for health departments to sort out, but they've got to be ready for particularly in rural and regional areas because this is something that you just need one truck driver to have arrived in a place in spread it and we've already seen somebody hiding away in trying to get into Queensland you just need one person and to move into our networks and off. So everywhere it's got to be ready and you to be ready for scale up and a plan for scale up so. Somebody throws a switch and people start with doing and they set up to prop up clinics, and within a few hours you've got it all going and that's what people have got to plan for and the best thing that can happen is you never have to institute your emergency response, but your emergency response has got to be really Schmidt and if he wants to know. More about how we've tooled up for contact tracing, how good it is, they listen to yesterday's Khurana cast with Ryan McIntyre where we covered a lot of these issues and that chat with Rhino was so interesting and there was stuff in there that we couldn't fit into yesterday's show. So we thought we'd bring it back again in prerecorded form to answer a question from Ingrid. Where Ingrid's ask if a person who has the virus uses a toilet does the next person inhale the virus spray in the toilet is flushed with the lead up and is the virus in urine faeces? Yum. This is just the sort of question that croquettes listeners love energy with toilets. Let's have a listen to yesterday's comments by Rhino McIntyre, which weren't in the krona cast. So this is a bonus we're talking about. And toilets on aeroplanes. We do know that there is a risk with closed transport vehicles with its planes buses. There's been a number of outbreaks already described on airplanes on buses and other vehicles including A. A navy ship whether it was a very, very high tech right? the Theodore Roosevelt in the US. The risk isn't just from Aerosol, droplets spread I mean we know that the highest risk isn't people sitting closest to the infected person and that's been born out in previous studies with diseases like to book your license and Maizels. But the toilet is also respected. There was one study where they were known infected people on board everybody was wearing a mosque and one of the people who became infected took the mosque off in the toilet. So we know that flushing the toilet can create aerosolize -ation. Probably. Less. So on an airplane toilet because of the nature of those toilets that don't have water swilling around, but they still would be rissole generation from the flushing action. So, the hall toilet is probably highly contaminated. So even if you wash your hands afterwards, you could breathe in contaminated aerosols than when you come out even just touching the door handle would be a risk. So that's that's probably one of the real hot spots on an airplane. That was Professor Rhino McIntyre who is professor of global biosecurity at Curbing University of New South Wales

To call a critic unprofessional for being critical. kind of result anyways so twice been really mad that he will talking shit less of us to dislike the fact that ninety nine percent of the reviews are like nine and tens out of tens because like five people gave it mediocre, not bad mediocre views, he angry. So. Trip Baker took the social media put. All just leave this heat. Oh, yeah, the He. Posted a screen shot of you. Don't Roosevelt quote which apparently has to do lots of to yeah, the man in the arena which we're GONNA assume drug-takers talking about himself. The man of the arena, it is not the critic who counts gypsum, not the man who poise out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could not have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who was actually in the arena. Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood? Who Strives Valiantly who airs? Who Short again and again. Who spends himself in a worthy, cause. Who at the best knows in the end, the triumph of high achievement who had it the worst if he fails at least fails while dairy greatly. So that is place shall never be with those cold and timid souls, who neither know victory nor Defeat Theater Theodore Roosevelt. Troy Baker has lost his goddamn mind if he's still paranoid wartime. And Heroes Sucking to video game voice actors like you wouldn't get. On a TV show or a movie, so decided to make funny voices. He's comparing that and I'm. Tara. I'm not being hyperbolic because of the way acres being very crazy about this whole situation. That were less came out and Troy Baker got kinda snubbed. Get offered his role, despite the fact, that bore gearbox claims that they offered him the role and he turned it down because. Regardless of that I thought troy, Baker was a bit of a victim hearing a lot of his shitty attitude in several other things. Even if you've got screwed in borderlands, three other bullshit, pretentious nonsense fucked Roy Baker is a great voice actor, but as a person Balkan. The say what super cringe about that is. I'm just GONNA assume Troy Baker doesn't know much about Theodore Roosevelt. There's nothing about that quote. Yeah, because it's. It's really cringing. Considering that Thea Roosevelt justified American imperialism off toxic masculinity and Like well, we have to go to war. Because then our men will be weakened gay. And so. Hey. Let's go. Let's fucking kick the Spaniards data of the Philippines and then take over the Philippine. Pretty much sell gay Filipino Vigo. Mission was yeah, so you know kind of fucked Teddy Roosevelt. Zero who actually made that same joke upon position and I was laughing really. Well, he didn't do quite go that far, but talked about his shitty of phobia. His imperialism, basically being awful. Acre to try to be noble and included she person hilarious and. Now. That's on the spectrum of stuff. Let's get a little more serious now.

"Riot Johnson Star Wars and director I believe. Or whatever the fuck is these director? He directed POKEMON. Go Commercial, which was stupid I. Feel I. Don't know why they use him because anyone I feel like a child could have directed commercial. That's a bunch of idiot. Kids going around and ripping the world open, and when they do a Polka on behind the wall, I don't know it was a stupid commercial. It was a thirty second waste of time and God knows what they pay ride. Johnson and to direct that. He probably didn't even remember directing that. and. He's the fuck director this piece of ship. Before. Get into the main. Maybe. Let's look this up. John. Spoiler Free Your final. Take on last of US before we get to the other what I'm going to plug the email and talk about that. added of go for you as it wrapped up. final regime I gotta give it a point. Seven five overall, the Gameplay was tight sword was good. I can't speak for any defended community, but I felt that what? Presented was fair and not to denigrating to anyone at all. once again the apocalypse. People are generally bad and then the apocalypse. They could be a worse. I wasn't disappointed with the ending. Personally I know there's a lot of Ireland that. I think should. I think people should play the game, not just like Oprah game to learn, but if the Jin generally good game yeah, it's interesting. Jimmy Laura did say that the game's pretty damn good through a majority of it, but rated the final act as the shittiest part of the game. That it just absolutely, no sense lost the plot and Elliot. Apparently just because this is utter a piece of Shit for no reason towards the end. I can I can understand that that logic and yet she does kind of GO OFF! The rails just changed their moments of reflections vacant. Oh, yeah! That's another thing like she. She's kind of a reflection of Joel, but to a different extent it's. Too late yeah yeah. I will say this though as much content as the first two ax contained I felt that there was some some more that could have been added to the third. Act The game could have been long. Pacing issues were is like it was fly is pretty good is going well does make sense. Weird memory hopping. fucking character in a floor I really. Stupid. But aside that apparently, it's like five to kind of makes sense aside that, and then here comes the final acting like what chapter did I. Miss All this went down like it'd be world. War Three, all of a sudden and I. Don't recall when that happened. The other day. This is a pretty significant time jump, but I mean now. It's the thing that I'm real. Is it? Is it? Is it a perceived time job, or is there a very clear three years later type of situation? No No, it's very clear and with the fans are the people that play that I've talked to. We're assuming that there's going to be DLC Fillon. Just. All right well, you know what given point seven five nine. We'll probably review copy next time because that's the kind of shows. They were looking for wanting dude, but. You didn't give it. Give free copy. yeah, so that's that's John and there we go, and we before we get into the main topic of ever. You can email us at disconnect cast. Mail at gmail.com. That's disconnected has been at gmail.com all right so well. That's continues to be a raging fire, not in the sense of the Games like that awful, but because of the situation surrounding so Neil Druckman and troy. Big butthurt boys that have been especially as of late in They're really upset now because people are disrespecting the art man Troy. Troy. All right, so there are fans out there who are defending that the critics who said that the game was like Schindler's List didn't say that. I'M GONNA. Read the tweet. Oriole out. There can tell me if it sounds like. He said this okay, because the fans claim that he did not say that. Here's the tweet verbatim. Jeff Cannata said in a medium where everything's John. Wick the last of us. Two is Schindler's list. And just like that film. There were times when I wasn't. Typo and there were times when I wasn't could keep going. That must be cut off. I wasn't sure I could keep. Going assures English a little bit better than that. It's a relentless emotional assault houses back when A. JADED JADED! Yeah, so even even insensitive jules ordeal feel emotions, basically what he said. Isn't that. Did I not actually say that last of us? Is Schindler's list. of course, the old Druckman decided to come to that guy's aid because he gave us to ten on ten, so must protect right pawtucket off hawks. Neil Druckman said to me. It's clear that Jeff is comparing emotional response between two pieces of media, not subject matter importance I did not take it as a direct comparison between our game, and the Holocaust itself or even as a way to diminish the weight of that film. In a world in a medium where everything is John Wick the last of us in part two is Schindler's list. To me. It's clear that Jeff isn't marrying an emotional response within the to inaugurate, so the point is. They're fucking. And Troy, Baker, no for being very defensive of his art, even when he's not that good a game..

"Some Games, I see myself like jumping on for launch presenter five. You did granted I didn't jump for a royal. 'cause. My mentality was already played the bass game. Yeah, it's harder to justify spending another fifty fifty. Sixty six. The rise against God I mean I ordered it. It's like I still waiting for its come in, but I paid like forty something for it there so. The game again with a little more stuff. Yes, but with a franchise like persona. Persona, six I would probably try to get that on launch. And that's the thing I think when when games stuff like that where they do have like the enhanced edition, or whatever I feel like forty should be a strict rule. If you're going, say itself the same game again with a little bit more I think forty dollars, it'd be like the benchmark like stopping point charging sixty again for the same game, even if it has twenty percent more content, or whatever the fuck I think it's bullshit. The charge launch price all over. That's why I think that which are dropping the game of the addition, fifty s a standard price usually finding on thirty or forty dollars sales normally. I think that's fair. Yeah. And a lot of Nintendo Games. I see myself buying online. It's hard, because also you wait so in. Rarely gone back to John's question. INTENDO Games, you never diminished value usually that usually go up especially physical addition looking fucking by Pokomo Games got by emerald or some shit like that. Sometimes, that's GONNA. Cost you your black like black and white, too. I never picked those up and I. Look Look at the. Roads, price. Higher. Bullshit I'm going to Russia okay. Sure. But yeah, that's definitely the shitty thing. especially with Nintendo Games, they don't drop in value and physical copies. Do get higher. The today, do they didn't intend to intentionally make short of. Added to? Yeah, they don't produce as much as. A, lot of the bigger. Bigger Sony Microsoft. You know they they pump out a whole. Bunch of copies. Intended doesn't really seem to do that. Who? So. Visible copies or something just expensive just because people will see them as like collector's items almost. You can only. The point. Yeah, but you can only really hope that they're gonNA. You know, make like a greatest hits, or whatever like I, remember trying to find Oakland enough time for the three D. S. and a physical copy. That game was really expensive, but then they released their. Greatest Hits version, or whatever and you know prices only. Twenty bucks on, so yeah exactly and then that's how I ended up getting. It was through that they rented it. So yeah, it was. Just, GonNa say with Intendo seems just kind of have to wait for that hopeful reprints because they're not like. Sony were. It'll be a free game of the month for Xbox you know same thing, or they'll put it on the pass. So this is I fought in a sampling a go. I was just going to say I get it. You know like we were talking about how they make. The they create scarcity, physical products and I get you know when when they drive up the price on that, because it can be hard to attain an original copy right, but like. How can they justify charging bet Christ for digital content? Yeah that's a bit. Yeah, that's that's what we argument a lot of people arguing. Because there's no overhead, really right. Yeah, well. Yeah, exactly so any game at all for this seven remade persona fiber anything. When it's digital version, it should not cost as much as something that comes to the plastic disc. Your digital that probably started. Maybe fifty or less shit. There has to be so discount, not getting anything other than the game. Because I've always found that faulkner preloaded game real stranding or whatever it's like fifteen, hundred, ninety, nine I could also get the physical version, although the fucking stragetic this every time. It's like bind digital. I still should like that like cost of not having impressive this can. Make a case and print the coverage at like. There's woods price. Save some money. They made no physical versions that all, and then the physical version so lacking. Nowadays you don't get it will yeah, you don't get a nice instruction manual with some cool art inside. Spot you don't even get a sheet of paper. Like. Case so I got an example of a game that was over printed the hell, and then like a really rare game. That's still worth a shit load years ago when they were still selling og xbox games, I saw guilty gear for og xbox at game, stock and Holy Fuck like that Shit was going for like ninety something dollars Oh the. MVP to the original, was seventy, eight, ninety nine. Yet. About was halo three the one that came with that helmet and a limited edition. Your predicted. I saw. A mountain. Of Halo Three Limited editions, ten years after came out at a funding. macy's and that shit was. Ten dollars. Like I was just like all value of nothing, apparently just like holy I liked. fucking stack of. Dishes, like nobody can I just walking by it to get to the fucking baby clothes and shit like nobody gives a shit life. Please someone, take it, so steal it. was just like man we're talking about. Over printed that collector's edition so fucking much. In fact. Just to see that point. Go on ebay right now. I'm curious. How much a halo three limited edition goes. Where does it go for anything because of the fact that it was so over printed or I looked not too long maybe about two years ago and between two and three hundred bucks. That's what he was asking I'm assuming like sealed probably. Just the the helmet, and sometimes it didn't even have the desolate. Case. So, it's one of those things that piecemeal people of the value. Yeah, because it looks like just to get like the steel book and the game. It's like thirteen dollars on average. Get the helmet and shit since that's harder to find. In fact I'm not even any listings with the helmet all the fucking game under the go. Yeah. He's like a complete one. japanese-print for two hundred bucks wow. Yeah, yeah, so it does look like by the fact that I found that memory over there. It does look like from a collector sandwich looking for halo five discussing all right so. That's surrounding PC version came out. Apparently, it's really good. The funny thing for me is I'm waiting for some fucking crazy mods. Redistricting should Scott. I'm waiting for funding to come out for that, so we'll see, but as of right now, not really anything. I can't wait for seven remakes going. It's going to be so mad they're going to. Models for that too oh. Yes. Do. Other. The showrooms or westworld apparently, we're GONNA fall out show. We don't going to be an HBO or whatever. One would assume it's going to get tied to some sort of service like that, so we'll see. But. Even though westworld world season to suck fucking Shit. was good, so maybe at least one season of fallout show. We'll be good. We'll see I think that. At least fallout could work watch. The actors get distorted when we get into power seekers. That'd be great if they just. Went around Yeah I. In fact. I would actually want. I'd have more interested in watching a hilarious recreation of how the actually work. Then some serious show answer. We'll see how that goes. On? Bataan BA five or ten and every Oh. Yeah, talking to actually the Howard is actually going to be in the fucking game, Jeez and is going to be like he's going to be the six five man. which will be great I think that's one of the funniest of all the lies he said..

"Carrier the USS Theodore Roosevelt has died from corona virus related complications the Roosevelt has been at the center of controversy for several weeks now first because of the actions it's captain took to sound alarm bells about the presence of the virus on his ship and then because of the unusual involvement of then acting navy secretary Thomas Moseley our Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman has been following all this and joins us this morning hi Tom Hey Rachel what we know at this point about the sailor who has died well the navy has not released his name yet pending family notification I'm told he's a chief petty officer in his forties and he and four other sailors were isolated after testing positive for the virus couple weeks ago and this is the first death among the crew no Rachel he did not show any symptoms I'm told and was checked twice a day in at one point in April ninety was checked and was unresponsive he was given CPR he went to the I see you at a Naval Hospital in Guam and he died yesterday the chief of naval operations admiral Michael day offer his condolences and said quote we pledge our full support to the ship and crew as they continue their fight against the coronavirus I know what we know at this point about the health of the other sailors from the Roosevelt well the four others are in the hospital I'm told not in the I see you and then nearly six hundred of the five thousand sailors have tested positive for the virus into as of yesterday more than ninety percent of the cruise been tested in more than four thousand sailors or Assurant Inc one of course all this began with the letter from there Kerry's captain Brad crozier urging his superiors to move faster because he said the virus is spreading quickly and he wanted of the four thousand sales taken off immediately he sent that letter to more than twenty people some outside the chain of command and as a result was relieved of command after the letter leaked to the press to the San Francisco Chronicle the four thousand sailors have moved to shore took one by the way are either in barracks or hotels depending on their condition and their number of sailors have to remain on board to tend to the ship's nuclear reactors and other sensitive systems I imagine all this has raised concerns about other carriers in the fleet and the navy itself right in the officials say there's no reason to think the Roosevelt as a one of a kind problem with this virus is ships of course vulnerable you living in tight quarters crew on top of one another so the navy's watching this very closely there were two other carriers are keeping an eye on keeping tabs on the Reagan base in Japan and undergoing maintenance is at fifteen virus cases although sales are off the ship and then you have the Nimitz which is in port in its sales have been restricted for two weeks there is no positive cases no ed mogul day the top naval officers said the navy struggling to test sue was quickly they need a a quick turnaround tests they also they say they're short on tests themselves so just briefly after captain crozier was relieved from duty the navy said that they would investigate what happened in in his fire we should say he found placement other ain't it somewhere else in the navy but what is the timeline for that investigation right when you create a closure was relieved of command officials said they would look into exactly what happened here on the Roosevelt and why he felt he had to write this letter why the navy was moving quickly enough and they say they're looking into what they call a breakdown in the chain of command and rage we expect the results of that investigation perhaps later this week okay well look out for NPR Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman we appreciate it

S. she says NASA should be snug but breathable high thread count fabrics work best you don't have to know how to sell just know how to follow instructions Wynn has been extremely busy sales are up about thirty percent with the majority of customers buying supplies to sell masks at home when says it was a customer from China who first warned her about the corona virus months ago and told her to stock up with it Hong Kong everybody's running out mask they can't even find it so it's going to come here it will come here so you need to start now did you hear that one months ago she was told from her friend in China or Hong Kong they ran out of masks and she said it will come here it will come to you that is chilling yeah and I just that's what I kept telling you about we knew about this the poll monologist I mentioned to you why right back in December back in January he serves are like the first week of January yeah he said this thing is in China I think it's gonna be a big deal I think this could be like a you know okay sars right yeah that's exactly what he said well and and then of course the White House was told about it and and completely I mean read the intelligence committee knew about it then you know that that of congressional members of Congress were were briefed and they actually made stock trades based on it you know we we know now we know a lot right yeah gosh and and for almost two months denying that it's a bad thing it is my I mean look at these yeah I mean in late mid March you are still hearing you were hearing this how the Democrats are politicizing the corona virus you know that and this is the new hoax I mean you know then the lead the rest of that is that he can make changes to in a few weeks later but I mean really to think about that so you're talking about but it was a long time ago right we could have been looking for ventilators and looking for mass and other personal protective equipment a long time ago back in January the failure of the fads on this extends beyond the trump administration because it's very hard to Marshall monies and interest in something that isn't a clear and present danger at the moment were myopic that way right oh sure okay so you know how you can you know again get to various allocations of funds for this global pandemic we talk about Bill Gates and the fact that he you know he's been banging the drum about a pandemic for years now Iraqi met with Donald Trump every is a Ted talk that goes back to twenty fifteen in which he talks about it it sounds like it's Yuri you know Brett never talk about this last week it's Yuri how he sounds like he's virtually talking about the very thing that we're dealing with now exactly and then you heard comments from president George W. bush back in two thousand five talking about the need to prepare for a possible pandemic back when terrorism was on the front line right at it everybody scratching their head listening to the president at that time wondering what the heck you're are you missing the big shiny object here we're we're fighting terrorism not a pandemic right right but he was able to get you know get some funding to get a national preparedness campaign and then the story the California back in two thousand six Arnold Schwarzenegger started that preparedness campaign against any possible pandemic in the future and lawmakers abandoned that million dollar emergency preparedness efforts I mean again because there and and that's not even that wasn't really that expensive even when you think about it but again because it's hard to justify its like a lot of infrastructure projects you know just hard to you don't in elections on that kind of thing because people don't really feel that if you know you don't want elections on on on the long term transportation goals and you don't win a popular support for monies and preparations associate with pandemics such so that's what you're up against so it wasn't just the trump administration I think the sin of the trump administration is worse than other administrations because there it was actually going on and they were ringing the alarm bells at the White House in the intelligence committee and they couldn't get anybody to pay attention and then what's worse they played it off like it was a democratic hoax as you saw so that I think is even more egregious and awful but but the original sin of ignoring the pandemic doesn't just start with this administration by the way I should just mention I didn't we've got a big swamp sweet and it's not all trump some of it and it's related to covert nineteen is about the opportunism associated with this thing people are rushing and I'm talking about political people just the way those senators made those stock trades knowing there's an element of that involving masks and P.

In the meantime hot can expect to be busy as consumers including me keep ordering stuff online for the world. I'm Kelly Casula us in Seoul for more than a dozen years. The US has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Somalia. The target the militant group al-shabaab. There was one incident in an airstrike two years ago where the. Us admitted to killing civilians so called collateral damage but Amnesty International now says it has evidence of two more airstrikes this year. Also killed civilians. Daphne Eviatar is Amnesty International's director of security with human rights. So those two other airstrikes happened. Back in February Daphne. According to your research what happened was a target and how many civilians were caught up in it so first of all. It's hard to know who the target was. Because africom won't say who the target was but we can tell you who was killed on. February second the family of five or having dinner in the city of Khalib in Somalia's Middle Juba region and a warhead struck their home and then eighteen year old woman. Omar Abu car was killed instantly vic strike also injured two of her younger sisters and their grandmother. Now we don't know who the target of that was the second strike that we documented was February. Twenty four th and that held a fifty three year old man who is a banana farmer and an office manager for the local telecom company. He had a wife and eight children. What's odd in that case in particular is that he had worked previously for international humanitarian organizations in the region and he'd been arrested several times by al-shabaab which makes it really unlikely that he was actually a member of al-shabaab. So the problem is that they don't identify who the targets are except for al-shabaab or affiliates. Shebab and then they declare everyone who has been killed as having been a member of Al Shabaab and so our researchers have gone in and interviewed people on the ground and found out who was the person killed and sometimes it is the member al-shabaab sometimes it wasn't we've investigated eight strikes over the last couple of years and found twenty. One civilians killed the. Us government has only acknowledged two of them. So have you. Amnesty International presented those findings to the Pentagon. What's been the reaction? Yes repeatedly so this is I think the third we're presenting them. Evidence of very specific civilians were killed by. Us strikes the reaction is generally will investigate. And get back to you and then when they have gotten back to us. It's basically a blanket responsive. We've determined that those were members of all Shebab those religions admit killings. But there's no evidence presented to back that up and there's no response to the fact that we have done all these interviews that just gets dismissed. Is there any way for families in Somalia to get reparations or even just an acknowledgement from the US military? That someone was killed. Well there could be but there hasn't been so that's another real concern. We have even in the one case and the one strike which resulted in two civilian casualties that the US government has admitted to. They have not even contacted the family. They have not provided any sort of reparations AFRICOM the US Africa Command has pledged to begin publicly reporting civilian casualties from The military operations in Somalia and elsewhere in Africa by the end of this month. What is your reaction to this? Is it enough? It's a good start other. Us military commands do report. This and so it's good. That AFRICOM will start reporting but the real problem is what are they going to report if they're doing shoddy investigations or investigation that rely purely on secret intelligence sources. That haven't been verified. The most reports won't be very helpful. What they really need to do is meaningful investigations the. Us government isn't going to know the impact of its actions there if it doesn't even know who it's actually killing and what role they played in the community.

A young woman who was the first reported corona virus case in Kenya says she's recovered by Kenya's official statistics. Fewer than one hundred people have contracted the disease. They're only one person has died. Still countries across Africa are taking drastic action to prevent the spread of cove in nineteen. The World Health Organization is calling countries to protect the poorest communities. But in a place like Kenya some worry that government policies are causing more harm than the pandemic itself. The world's Halima condie reports on a typical day residents in the Nairobi neighbourhood of Kariobangi. Wake up before dawn. It's a low income area meaning. Most homes don't have running water and families often share a single room after getting their children. Ready for school board crowded buses to go to work and other parts of the city. But these days many people don't have jobs to go to being laid off some going for without pay sum deducted deducted pay says Stefanos Hanno. He's a human rights defender at the Kariobangi Social Justice Center. He's been going door to door to educate his community about how to protect themselves from Corona virus but Odierno says their biggest concern is about losing their jobs and putting food on the table. Most people in the neighborhood are casual day. Laborers like food vendors or security guards. These are the people being hurt.

"It. People and there is no sanitation. There's no soap and there is no water so when I was speaking to them about social tensing it felt like an obscene statement to make when there is so much poverty and people do not have even their basic meals. In fact I met this migrant laborer. Who worked in a little factory? His daily worker and there are eight people in the family and it's been two days since he hasn't gone to work and he does not know what the next day works for him. His wife is on dialysis and he cannot decode hospital because the hospitals are preoccupied occupied with them go with foster to patients. So I mean it's it's it's really miserable sight to witness because these up people unlike the privileged like the middle class of the country. Who have stopped did refrigerators. With Fudan and sanitizers. These people do not know where their next meal is going to come from and some of the neighbors that I met divet crying and they were choking and they said all we want to do is just to go back to our respective hometowns and if anybody can just you know. Put us in a train or a bus. We just want to see our families. Let's hear that Clip Gothic Margaret Bust. I think just the sound of his voice captures the dilemma. He finds himself in what? What was he saying? It was a sobering moment because he said all he wants to do is just go back home. If the government can really help him go back home. He was stalling when I met him and simulcast would packets to give them and they said well. You have given us food packets right now. But what do we do about our next meal? It was? It was really traumatizing to witness data and this is not just you know despite locality at this point of time as I talked about thousands and thousands of laborers who are desperate to go back on because there is no work in the cities. The Prime Minister of the country has initiated these relief funds. But I don't know when. Will that really reach these people because as it stands right now the relief is not reaching them. The only leave that is reaching dam is from NGOs and Volunteers who are working on the ground. So these day laborers are hoping they can pull resources with families and villages So basically they can eat but the families and villages are also under the lockdown so realistically if these workers in the cities make it to the villages. What can they actually expect? Honestly when I spoke to Dan district they just wanted to be with their families. If the DI- did not want to be alone because right now grants they are to this no shortens that. They're going to get their next meal the next day and they're locked down. There are ten labours lockdown in one room. I mean it really seems like a brutal way to treat the poor and vulnerable. What kind of pushback is the government getting? All channels are news. Media's visuals of these farmers and laborers who have been working so of course the countries angry but you know this. Entire incident sheds light on the clear divide between the rich and the poor. The rich and the elite in this country read a week ago standing in their balconies and clapping and cheering for health workers. Which is a great thing. So there's a clear clear. Structural divide between the rich and the poor and the rich and the middle class has been dead but the floor is on the streets and they're crying and they're sticking accountability.

Look for the helpers as Mr Rogers used to say getting through this corona virus pandemic is going to take lots of different helpers. Nurses doctors teachers parents ad delivery workers to the list especially in South Korea. Kelly Casula is based in Seoul and place. The local sometimes referred to as delivery nation. I moved to South Korea a few years ago from the US and one thing that's been really easy to get used to is the convenience. Here's what I'm talking about. I was laying in bed a few nights ago when I realized I forgot to buy a special kind of battery for my camera. I panicked a little because I needed it the next morning for work. But then I remembered South Koreans call their country pay down a Nada or delivery nation. For reason I ordered the battery online that same night. The website promised to it gets me time and sure enough. The next morning at seven am so I just got a text message saying that my packages arrived to my door. So I'm about to go grab them. But here's the real kicker. The battery cost me around ten dollars and delivery was three. I feel like a kid opening Christmas presents right now. I slept the battery in my backpack and head out for the day. So it's early morning here and I'm just leaving my apartment to go to work and of course there's one of these delivery trucks in front of my house. The delivery guy must be running upstairs and giving people their packages as I walked to my bus up to other delivery services. Pass me along the way south. Koreans jokingly call themselves deliverymen Joel Min joke means a group of people sort of like an ethnicity or a race but during the krona virus outbreak. The National Obsession with delivery has kicked into overdrive. Udaya Jen twenty five year. Old University student tells me that she does most of her shopping online but nowadays she says y'all go botany because of Corona. I've heard so many more people are getting things online and having them delivered but convenience also comes with a dark side earlier this month. A delivery man working for a big online retailer here died at work. Another delivery guy found his body at two. Am lying in the stairwells. An apartment building with no elevator news media only identified the man as Mr Kim. The incident got a lot of attention. Home is the head of the Labor Union for Delivery Workers Haas as the official reason for Kim's death was listed as heart failure. But that's not what he thinks really killed him. They've done coup all hanging on to. Kim died from being overworked from pressure. That comes with the job. Korean delivery workers are tracked by a GPS SYSTEM. And they're rewarded for speed. That's how management. I noticed something was wrong with the worker who died of hunger. Could it'll pick it. Do you get home in their house. Says he wants employers to stop promising. Don deliveries altogether and the ease up on the pace a year ago. He says he was delivering to about eighty homes per day. Now it's as high as one hundred eighty now. I can't help but to feel guilty every time I open a package but then again south. Koreans aren't the only ones addicted to home deliveries Andrew. Kim is a sociologist at Korea University. All horrible things online. You know like the state is Amazon. Kim tells me in the South Koreans have gone all in quick home deliveries.

"The winter than in the summer. So for instance. Flu has very strong seasonal forcing go much more likely that flu transmission occurring in the winter than you are in the summer months so this study has been interpreted as suggesting that that could be seasonals. Covet however I think that we still need to get more days today. Hot and humid countries seem to have and I should say seem to have had fewer cases of covered nineteen Would you agree with that? And if you do wise at the situation I think we have to consider a number of other factors. That could explain that. For instance one of the introductions sample sample is not only a Hong Eun country place which has excellent public health excellent content tracing and some very will class at Zang's true of Hong Kong. If you look to other places around that region like Indonesia Indonesia was famously darned starting testing and so they may have been a lot of community spread that we just haven't detected but we are seeing with. Kobe is when it enters the community in some places cakes off the jump breaks quite quickly wake in Iran in others. It doesn't that doesn't mean that it's going to happen right now. For instance we can see that. That's probably very good evidence so coded transmission taking place in Florida. So where do you find the strong evidence that Corona virus does behave like the flu virus in that it is seasonal and could lead up over summer months in North America and Europe? So the study talking about it in the moment is probably the strongest evidence that is. I say has another confounding issues to deal with the Isis. Saying transmission is not happening. It could be. The transmission was just not observed. My colleague mercy. Santana has done a study which was looking at the initial epidemic in different parts of China because China's quite China has a number of different climactic conditions different positive so up north. It's kind of coal and Norgren Humid where South Walnut Creek Humid. So if you were able to see seasonable for senior expect to be more transmission happening unless happening down south but when he looked at the early stages of the epidemic he found such a fact have any previous viruses like SARS or merged shown a seasonal pattern or behaved any differently and warm and humid climates. The issue was saws off. That is often misunderstood. Is that people say that way because of the wall and human violence and the change in seasons but actually what happened results was the majority of transmission happened. Africa symptoms so social distancing. People who you know have called for Just staying home had an outsize effect on transmission that does not get a case with code coded increasing evidence. Kobe transmits a full symptoms become apparent and has resulted. That is much much control now when the flu goes away in the summer. It's not just as a seasonal fall saying it's not just because it finds it. Harder to transmit seasonal flu has been done around will with a building community in the community which means tries to transplant. It's more likely to find that resonates transmitting to is immune. So the downtown scene. Flu is due to seasonal plus immunity is. Kobe is a new virus. There is no immunity. I'm wondering professor manage if you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Even drawing the comparison to the flu given that this parallels have largely been dismissed at this point I actually rocker. We've lost people saying this is flew flew. Snood not new. It's it's wrong rolling comparison. It's wrong to say Ho flu. Kills only so many people year and this is killed. Fuelling acts the same key missing. Is that whenever you say that? Have not being not many deaths. It's the so far at the end of that. Have Not Lodge outbreaks with these places yet? This is still very early stages and we're GONNA learn a lot more than a lot of it is gonNA learn considerable costs. What evidence would you need to conclude that the corona virus is affected by temperature and does follow that seasonal forcing dynamic? You were talking about. We would need evidence that would show that the rate of transmission uninterrupted by other things was slower in the summer. And it wasn't a windsor now. Of course it's going to be together because we are going to be seeing a whole lot of Alba countermeasures which can be put in place and rightly so in spreading now. I hope that that is going to drive three number down. But it's going to be very difficult to know whether or not asked countermeasures. Physical Distance Enroll doing the reason.

Johnson Sirleaf knows what it's like to face a deadly virus outbreak. She was president of Liberia during her nations battle with the Ebola virus. Nearly five thousand people died there between two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen and infectious disease. Respect snowboarder in discriminates against no one. I argued that an uncontrolled containment will matter where in the world and no matter. How localize is a threat to all humanity as a Bolo was spreading across Liberia? And it's west. African neighbours Sirleaf made pleas for global unity to avert a pandemic. She wrote what she called a letter to the world and the world responded and they did so boldly we defeated together. Liberia was declared Ebola. Free in June of two thousand sixteen with the Corona virus spreading across the globe. Sirleaf is now making a similar play. We must act to slow down. Break the chain of transmission. It is clear that mistakes have been made in the initial response to the virus from Asia to Europe to the Americas. We made the same mistakes in twenty fourteen but we self correct and we did it all together. We are all in this together advice that helped Liberia during Bola and applicable to the whole world. Now that was former Liberian President Ellen. Johnson Sirleaf speaking with my colleagues at the BBC. You're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman. You're with the world ninety three years. That's how long the man dubbed the Godfather of natural history has been on this earth. I'm talking about broadcaster. Sir David Attenborough. What I WANNA do is going to look at Odds Fox and pangolins and sloths and humming birds. What an assignment. What if I'm tastic through an didn't matter how badly you did it and we we but but people who said ooh Look Hummingbird ooh look? That's Bangla. That's attenborough on the podcast. The Economist asks a podcast in Partnership With Economist magazine and MC L. Voice a host for this week's episode. She sat down with Sir David Attenborough. So attenborough's ninety three. He's still going strong. Even has a new film coming out a life on our planet that thirst for curiosity and for nature's wonder It seems is not waning. In his ninety s not at all he seems is keen as ever to get out into the world. He said if if I'm asked I go he's head as if he might just put his backpack on and leave the room at any minute and looking for pangolins. I think you get that sense. That hearing from him of wonder of the world he now combines that much more with warning about threat to the natural world and one thing. I've wondered was when he had changed from being someone Houston wandered the globe. Ren- back pictures and stories the extraordinary places and wonderful animals to someone who wanted to send a strong message and this is what he said back in the sixties when the first time I saw a bleach car reef and I realized that the richest environments richest ecosystem the world has ever seen somebody being wiped out and we were doing it. So in the podcast. You Press Sir David Attenborough. Some hard hitting issues specifically his own carbon footprint. I mean he's a man who has traveled all over the globe. What did he have to say about that? And whether he's changed any zone habits to lessen that footprint I often find it. It's a question that makes interviewees regal and I think it makes David attenborough a bit uncomfortable. He takes the view that he travels on long voyages. They are actually pretty efficient in terms of the number of people that he takes with him. He says he doesn't travel unnecessarily but he did say he still sees it as part of the job that he does. It's integral to it. Orders to sitting here are breathing carbon dioxide. We're all contributing to in some way or another to the problem and it is impossible other line down and dying for us to cease doing so what we have to think about is the common dogs that I am producing simply talking to you and sitting here is not being misspent and I hope it. Isn't you fly. Let's yes I suppose I do but I don't fly anyway for fun. I fly as part of my job. Okay that's an interesting distinction. That's a good one As so an David attenborough ninety-three seen a lot and is now in the twilight of his life. How optimistic izzy. About the current environmental movement. He really came to life. I thought on this issue. He sometimes gets bored. Benching an elderly poster child for the Environmental Movement. He said it was visited him. But when we came to talking about Gratitude Burke. I thought he really had an interesting take on her and particularly why he thought that she'd made an impact. But I think it's absolutely astonishing what she's done and she's caused the most mighty potentates in the world to take breath and suddenly think about things. How is the attenborough family appreciated in the UK and have some of David attenborough zone kind of attitude. Shifts got paralleled The the the country's shifts he's a national treasure. It's it's a phrase itself news debate in. Which he he says he doesn't like but I imagine most people would rather be a national treasure national treasure. He's he's not really politically as active as much as someone who really wants to bring you the way that he sees the world into your living room and he believes that wonder is the first step of a broader awakening. He thinks that comes before the activism. Some people see it the other way round would be critical of him from that corner. But that's absolutely what he stands for why he continues to do what he does. Nine decades on and Macelroy podcasts. The economists asks thank you very much. Thank you very much okay. Bringing wonder into your living room. I like that especially right now. Turns out a lot of people do citizen. Science projects have gotten a boost in interest during the corona virus. Pandemic people logging onto their computers from their couches and helping out scientists. Remotely everything from digitizing data to hand counting animals in a photo.

The website has blown up since lockdowns around the world have forced people to find things to do at home. We've been incredibly busy. We've had moulded a two hundred thousand people take in the last week which is about six or seven times what we expect. Lintott its own. Science project has also seen an uptick in participation it asks citizen scientists to look at graphs of light emitted from distant galaxies to try to find the shadows of passing planets by the people I tried to escape a little dreaming of new world's one. New Project has launched because of the uptick in volunteers. It's called rainfall rescue. Citizen Scientists transcribe old rainfall records handwritten over centuries by backyard gardeners in the UK utterly overwhelmed with response. We've had seven thousand volunteers get involved already. we've had half a million classifications numbers entered in the first twenty four hours climate scientists. Ed Hawkins at the University of Reading runs that project. I think people just want to distraction. At the moment fill up they can help out in some way and there were the situation that the world is currently in and this is a great way of doing it getting that historic rainfall data off of scanned. Handwritten notes will allow research the plug them into climate change models. Hawkins says climate issues have taken a back seat to the corona virus crisis but he hopes participating in projects like his can help people who are locked down to their sofas feel connected to the things they care about and each other.

That's happening on a very tiny island with just a little over one hundred sixty thousand people we already have seventy seven cases on Guam and so bringing in a carrier with five thousand people who have been in such close quarters with each other And Cova rapidly spreading there that the Annan needs to be able to focus on the community here to the governor of Guam. Promise the navy anything. Well the governor of Guam. After the captain of the carrier wrote a letter about how serious the issue was The governor and the admiral started making decisions to house those who are testing negative in local hotels and they have said that they're going to ensure that a local hotel workers don't interact with the people coming off the carrier that they're working on How that's what that's GonNa look like. Do you know if any sailors have disembarked yet. No so the house of what this is GonNa look like a haven't really been made available to the community. A lot of the numbers have not been officially made available to the community in terms of how many people have already tested positive on the carrier. This information is vital. I believe to our community and it's a big difference from they will stay on the carrier or on peace to now we will be housing them in the hotels. How a dilemma is is for the residents of Guam because Captain Brett Crozier. The commander of the Roosevelt is pleading for help. I mean he's saying. Us troops are in a life and death situation. How are people talking about that? You know what the groups have been saying. Is that if we know. For a fact that it's spreading rapidly on the ship and then you remove them from the ship and you bring them into the local community even one new case in the local community because of how small and interconnected this community is could lead to many many more cases and that is problematic Nobody said that we want to turn away the sailors from from health. Care that they need you. Know there are People Guam. Who served in the navy and our on this carrier and we by no means want them to be mistreated or put their lives at risk. No what we're saying is the navy has the resources to handle this within their base. We should also point out that. Many residents of Guam our veterans or active duty Navy. Some are actually aboard the Roosevelt. Right now so how do those ties between Guam and the US military complicate the situation for people on the island we constantly because of you know our relationship with the United States and with the military particularly the people of Guam? Truly not being able to say you know what we need to focus on how we're going to handle the increasing number of cases that we have and there isn't enough information for us to really know what we're expecting here There hasn't been transparency. On behalf of the Military Victoria. Lola Leon. Guerrero is an activist with the group independent Kuun. She's been speaking with us from Guam Victoria. Thank you very much for your time in good health to you and your family remember the novel. Corona virus is just that novel. New Epidemiologists are learning about it. In real time as it continues its global path of destruction. One question. They're trying to answer is whether there is a seasonal aspect to it. Does it behave like the flu.

"You can also see some of the badlands so not as much as you would see it say Badlands National Park but they do have their own badlands and it's very similar in the way that it shaped and stuff so if you haven't seen that type of thing it's really cool to see it here and we did see the feral horses so they have wild horses. That are just running around in. It's it's pretty cool to see that you can also see kind of the cutouts and the little bit of the kind of canyons base. Not as impressive as the North Unit. But the little. Missouri River is coming through here so you get some really pretty views of that and there is also a petrified forest. So if you're willing to hike out to that you can't. There's no car access out to the petrified forest but you can do hike a day hike that will get you out there and you can check out the petrified forest as for Bison in the South Unit we actually didn't see a single bison in the South Unit and from what I hear from other people who've been there that's pretty typical to not see the Bison in the South Unit so just so you know if you want to see the bias and you're also going to have to plan to go up to the North Unit. The next section to talk about is elk horn ranch so this is the ranch that Theodore Roosevelt built when he was After his initial cabin and he was going to be spending more time there. It's about thirty five miles north of the South Unit but your access to it is actually off of highway interstate ninety four. So you're going to I ninety four and then you take this other road to get up there. It's it's not a super cleared road. I mean it's not really smooth. They recommend vehicles have high clearance in order to get out here. So it's not the kind of thing that you're taking your rv out to see and it's not between the South Unit in the North Unit. So it's not like a stop that you can do on your way between the two units you'd really need to be staying in the South Unit and then decide with with your towed vehicle or your or your primary vehicle to pull a trailer that you're GonNa take that vehicle and head out to the ranch Because you're not going to be able to do that with your RV. So that is elk horn ranch. We actually didn't take the time to go see. Alcorn ranch So I can't give you any more details about it and if it's worth the effort but if you care about the history with Theodore Roosevelt than it might be worth the time now. The North Unit is really the highlight of the park. And I would say to try to spend at least one night up here in the North Unit so you can really experience the park and everything that makes Theodore Roosevelt such a great park so when you come into the North Unit. You have a fourteen mile scenic drive. That takes you to the end of that. Dr Assuming it summer it's not open all the way through during the winter but you go fourteen miles out and then of course you have to come back those fourteen miles to exit the part. If you're staying within the park at juniper campground then you just go in and you can camp there for the night and that's what we did. We'll talk about that a little bit more. If you're not going to stay in the park you have to go actually quite a ways. Outta town in order to get to the next. Rv options but as you're coming in apparently a lot of times you can see some Longhorn Cattle. As soon as you're coming in and those first couple of miles on this stretch we didn't actually see any this time year but it could be because there were so many bison all over the place that the cattle are kind of a heading away so we there were bison all over I mean dozens of bison so they were running around with their babies. They were crossing the road so we'd have to stop sometimes and let him cross the road. They were snacking on grass on the side of the road It was just really cool to kind of see them and be able to drive by and capture some pictures. And then keep driving on the next place that you get to where there's a pool out is the cannonball concretions and these are really cool These are these large boulders. That look like they could be a marble set for a giant There's just these big boulder rock balls and they were created. Apparently when sand grains from an ancient river deposit were cemented together with minerals that were dissolved in the groundwater so the water kind of like pulls together and builds upon the sand grains and in some of them. You can kind of see the Leering of that as they've broken apart But it's really cool to see. You can kinda hike around and see some of those. This is also where this plowed his at is also where the entrance is at to go to the tune of campground. If you continue on the main scenic road then you get to the river bend over look and this will give you the most fantastic view of the canyon. It's just. It's absolutely spectacular. You see this huge canyon going through there with the little Missouri River flowing through and it really is just beautiful. There's a really cool stone structure that's built right here from the Civilian Conservation Corps that they did back in the Thirties. And it's still standing in its beautiful and you can walk in it and then look out at the overlook so really beautiful spot to stop and then as you keep going on the route on the road scenic road the last place you get to as the ox bow overlook and this is another pretty overlook there's actually a pathway trail ASCHENBACH trail that goes to the north. And you can take that to get back to the other river Ben Overlook But there were a lot of by some kind of in the way and hanging out on that trail so we couldn't go that route so we asked one of the Rangers which way we should go and he said to just take the trail south and go-to sporadic point. And I highly recommend that little hike. It's probably only about a mile. Maybe a little more than a mile to just hike to the point of spotty point and then you get a really nice view of the Canyon as well We had a bit of an adventure as we were hiking back on that. So spotty point is you're coming back and you're you're just about to come over this bend to your right side and there's a hill there so you're you're not really seeing what's up in front of you. You can kind of see the road and the parking lot but you can't quite see where the trails going to continue and we were maybe fifty feet from the point where this bend is actually going to happen on our hike back and all of a sudden we see these rangers that are in the parking lot and one of them just starts walking in the Prairie. Not on a path or anything. He's just walking across the grass of the prairie which are like a foot high and he's walking towards us which was really weird and the kids. Actually they're like mom. Are we in trouble? The Rangers coming by US and I said No. We haven't done anything. We're not in trouble. So as he started getting closer he wasn't running but he definitely was walking with purpose as he started getting closer. He said he's he just calmly said folks stop so we. We stopped in our tracks and we waited for him to meet with us and he said just around that turn there's a bison and truly there was maybe ten feet from the point that you take that little turn maybe not even that five to seven feet there was a bison standing right there and you certainly don't want to just randomly scare a bison as you come up to him on a trail so the ranger was coming to let us know that we were going to walk around through the prairie grasses and get back to the parking lot that way safely and the girls were very scared about rattlesnakes and they said what if a rattlesnake bites us and we assured them that the bison impaling them with his horns was going to be much worse than a rattlesnake bite which was not likely to happen so we went through there. He guided US back over the parking lot and we were fine. No Bison injuries and no rattlesnake injury so it ended up being fined but just goes to show that there are a lot of bison at this park so if you care about that it's really cool to see them but at the same time you know be smart about what you're doing and be careful and just know that they could be anywhere in the park and when we come back. We're GONNA talk about the camping options by far the best campground option. I can tell you is the juniper campground which is up in the North Unit. It's the NPS campground that you have there for the park. They have these nice wide spaces. There's no hookup so I mean you have to deal with that but it's also not terribly hot even though it was summer so we didn't have to worry about running. Ac and we were able to run the generator to cook our dinner and everything and then you just have to turn it off at night and it was no problem to be without a C. For night so it was a great spot to stay a couple of things that we really loved is that we were very close to where the outdoor amphitheater is and there was a ranger program going on and she was talking about Bison Sin and she had brought a bison hide and she had sample horns and bunch of different information and so the girls were able to. We were all able to sit there and listen about the bison presentation and they needed to do that as part of their junior ranger packet so we were able to get in a ranger program and then the other thing that we could do from the campsite is just walked down into the little Missouri River and the girls enjoy just being able to have their swimsuits on and run through the river and play round You could tell that a lot of bison had been in the area because of the Dung piles that were around there but there weren't any at the time that we were in the water so that was good and it was a cool place to just kind of cool off so we really liked that campground. If you're staying on the South Unit. They actually have a campground as well. That's within the NPS unit but the town of Madore also has some nice options. And then you can have hookups and everything for the North Unit. If you're not going to stay in the NPS campground then. You really have to drive quite a while probably thirty minutes or so to get to the next nearest town. And then there's there's not a lot of options. I think there were one or two options so we had that in mind in case we got down to the juniper campground and it was sold out because we cannot make a reservation it was first come first serve and we lucked out. We actually got a spot and we were one of the last. I think three spots for the campground but it also by that point in time we got there during the evening so it was maybe five or six o'clock so I think as long as you're getting there a little bit earlier in the day you'll probably be OK to get a spot even in the middle of summer so that some of the camping options in We have a video review of the juniper campground on our youtube channel so all linked to that here on the podcast notes so you can go straight to that and see what it looks like and then we have a bunch of different pictures about That show the town Madora and then show different highlights of the park. That's on our instagram. And I'll actually put together an instagram story. That just has Teddy Roosevelt National Park. I'll label at tear in peace. You can just quickly find those highlights and see what you would want to visit the last thing that I wanNA talk about Just because it kind of bothered us and I just feel like it deserves. Mentioning was that we were really shocked to see how much oil drilling is going on. Up there in North Dakota. I mean literally the whole time that you were on that scenic drive in the North Unit. If you look out in the distance to the north you can see the oil rigs just going up and down into the to the ground and it just was really kind of interesting to see that here. You have this beautiful park but then we're still kind of surrounded by all this You know commercialism and and everything else that we're doing and it was a A little concerning to us. Now I can't you know we have this big diesel guzzling RV. So I can't say I'm not part of the problem but it just made me a little bit sad so I thought that it might be worth mentioning that No matter your party lines or any divisions we have we probably all care about protecting and preserving the national parks. And that's something that's always important to me so I just want to mention a few ways that you can do that too. That are just ways that we can help. Support those national parks. So one of the things is you can be A member for the Park Association. So if you go into the parks you know how they have. The gift shop like bookstore areas usually those are run not by the NPS site but by kind of Third Party.

"Who travels with our Jaco Seneca and we tow a jeep. We travel with our two kids. Who are in Elementary School? And our dog and we're trying to head to all the national parks with the kids before they head off to college. We've been to twenty seven so far and counting so we like to cover for you. Some of the details about going to the different national parks and some of the sites and things you might want to see some of the logistics about getting there and things you might need to know about the roadways campsites and things like that. We always cover camping options at the end of the PODCAST and We just try to fill IT WITH INFORMATION. That's useful for you so that you can have a more enjoyable trip so today. We are talking about Theodore Roosevelt National Park which also people re Abbreviate T. R. N. P. and I have to be honest with you. I hadn't really heard of Teddy Roosevelt National Park before we were starting our whole national parks journey. And that's probably because it's a little bit more of a remote destination and that it's not a place that necessarily a lot of us are passing by as we're traveling on the main interstates. It's located in North Dakota. It's actually just off of highway. I ninety four But North Dakota's pretty far north. So unless you're kind of a northern Montana or northern Minnesota. You're not necessarily passing by there It's more of a destination. It's the only national park that is named after a person and rightfully so it was named after President Theodore Roosevelt. Who did so much to protect the parks so he really deserves getting a park named after him and it's also a location that was actually important to him as well. He spent a significant amount of time here and a cabin that he lived at well. He He lived in while he was here. Is still actually here at the park? Can you can tour it. He loved hunting. He was a Major outdoorsman and and really loved being in nature and he actually got into the cattle business for a while this was kind of in his early political career and he had cattle that were in this area and he would come to stay at his cabin while he was here and then he kind of had some ranch hands that were handling this while he was gone and back dealing with government stuff so at the point though when his wife and his mother died which actually happened on the same day when he was in his twenties he kind of came out to the cabinet and used it as a bit of a retreat to heal and kind of get through that process so he spent a lot of time here. Unfortunately the cattle business didn't really work out for him. Hit the cattle faced brutally cold winter in most of them died and he ended up actually losing a lot of money in his whole experience out here but it never stopped his love of nature and the area. And there's actually a really good biography. We actually picked it up on disk while we were at the visitor's center at Teddy Roosevelt National Park in it's called the rise of Theodore Roosevelt. It's also in book form and stuff But if you like listening to books on tape while you're driving this one would get you in the mood for being there at the park. It covers his life really from the point that he's born up to his presidency. So you hear about this time in his life when he spending a Lotta time here Madora. So that's a little bit of background in terms of the things that you can see while you're here at Teddy Roosevelt National Park. There's really two units while there's actually kind of three parts to the park but two main units the South Unit and the North Unit and in the South Unit. There's a beautiful painted landscape. That gives you these amazing views. You can see wild horses running through the park and you can't see that everyday and the town of Madura is just outside. The park is a really great touristy town that has a lot of fun activities that your kids would love. So that's a bunch of stuff to see on the south side in the North Unit. You would expect to see by sin like you have never seen before of all the parks we've been to. This has been our favourite in terms of trying to see Bison and really being so close to seen him They were everywhere and they were close. Sometimes actually too close and I'll tell you a story of something that happened to us but you would be able to get the best bison photography at this park if that's something that matters to you. Also there's the cannonball concretions and those look like something out of another planet as do the badlands. Those also have that feel as well. And there's an amazing canyon that's carved out by the little Missouri River. That is just stunningly beautiful. So that some of the stuff to see at Teddy Roosevelt National Park. Let's talk about the logistics of getting here so like I mentioned. It's a little bit off the beaten path. It's off of highway interstate. Ninety four in North Dakota. You could potentially tie it into a trip. If you're heading out to go west to go to yellowstone or if you're heading out to glacier and we actually did spend our time here at Teddy Roosevelt National Park after we had been at glacier national park so it's really just a straight shot east in Montana on highway to to get to the North Unit of Teddy Roosevelt National Park Now we're going to talk about both units in this podcast. But I will tell you spoiler alert that the North Unit shouldn't be missed. That's really where you're going to fall in love with this park though if you take highway two from glacier. Let's say you're leaving from glacier. That's what we did. We thought it would save us. Time to just take that straight shot east instead of having to head down and get onto ninety four and then take that over an an across and then up but I don't think that actually happened because there was so much construction going on on that highway. Two that the road it didn't have full closures but the road was literally gone. It was it was down to dirt in some places. I mean for miles. It was down to dirt so you can imagine driving that on your big motorhome which is not really meant to be an operating vehicle and we're trying to drive across this going like five and ten miles per hour sometimes so it probably ended up taking us more time to get there by taking that highway two than it would have to. Just go down to the interstate ninety four but you might just want to check if you're doing that route or you're you're thinking about adding this onto the glacier trip. Maybe just check that out and see if there's any construction maybe by next summer by by this summer twenty twenty that will all be fixed in the road will be great but in two thousand nineteen. It was absolutely miserable. So that's one of the routes but maybe not the one you WanNa take if you are driving on. I ninety four anyway. So say you're coming from northern Minnesota like Fargo or whatever and you're cutting across and you're heading over to yellowstone then you're easily going just be passing right by Madore and the South Unit. So it's easy enough to plan to stop here for a night. You really won't regret stopping a Madore because it's such a great town and you'll get to at least the South Unit for the park. You'll get a feel for the park but you're which is better than not stopping at all But I don't think that you'll love it as much as if you take the time to go ahead and go up to the North Unit which is sixty eight miles. North up the road of highway eighty five so it is a bit of a track and you definitely want to at least spend another night just on the North Unit. You don't WanNa do that as a day trip. But it's really worth it to see the sights that are in the North Unit and. I think you'd really enjoy it. When is the time to go to Theodore Roosevelt National Park while we were there the second week of July and I really thought that this was a great time? The weather was perfect. It was definitely warm but it wasn't like miserably hot and it wasn't buggy at all. I think it probably isn't humid enough to really have that buggy. Feel that you sometimes get as you're heading to the Midwest We were able to get into camping without having any reservations. So that worked out just fine and due to road closures and limited resources in the off season. I I really think that this is a park to visit during the summer months night. You're not really going to get the feel and you're not going to be able to access a lot of the spots in the winter months that you would probably want to see so. I think it's best to visit in the summer months and You can try to get reservations in certain areas to camp around there but you may not even need that if you get there early enough in the day and when we come back from break we're going to talk about the different units in the park. So the South Unit of the park is bordered by. I ninety four along the southern entrance of that South Unit for a pretty long stretch. There's actually an exit called Painted Canyon which is exit thirty two off of highway. Ninety four where you can actually pull off. You don't even have to pay to go into the park. You can just park your rv there or your car and you can see the painted canyon landscape which is really beautiful. There's a visitor center that here. So you can get some information and pick up your ranger packets For the junior ranger program and stuff when we stopped there was actually a park ranger giving a talk about the different rock formations and talking about kind of the clay and how those different things were formed. Because a lot of that's really unique to the park here as you head further west on I ninety four you get to the exit for Madura. Which is the town. That's here. There's a bypass road that you actually take in. That's on exit. Twenty seven while at least if you're heading. West is on exit twenty seven the town in Madore has street parking and even can accommodate an RV towing a car type street parking so big long stretches where their street parking just outside of the park and there's even some RV parks that are in town. There's lots of shopping and different stores and Like dinner playhouse. Type places and fun family activities. There's even an outdoor nightly staged that they set up a show that they do. That's kind of like a Western show now. I think that's only happening in the summer. So another reason to visit during the summer. But it's really a cool town has a lot of charm. People were really nice here and this would be a great base to stay at. When you're in the South Unit you can of course stay within the park. But if you're in the town of Madurai you have access to all that fun stuff and you'd have hookups and everything which you're not going to have within the park. The South Unit for the park is also here in Madeira. And once you enter into the park one of the first things that you can see is the visitor center. And then there's the Maltese cross cabin. Where Roosevelt actually lived for a while while he was traveling here and they've set it up they they have it really kinda decorated to to the period and some of his things are even in there. So you can walk around and tour it a little bit and see these different things which is really cool to see the actual cabin used to be located at at a another spot. That was probably like six miles away or something but they moved it over here. So it's right by the visitor center and it's easy to tour. He later went on to build the alcorn ranch which is kind of like thirty five miles north of the South Unit. But it's not really on your way to the North Unit. It's its own destination so if you want to see the elk horn ranch you're gonNA have to do some additional planning and we'll talk about that when we talk about the ranch for the South Unit. There's also a scenic drive. That is a thirty six mile loop that goes through the South Unit of the park now when we were there last summer in twenty nineteen. This was actually closed so they were doing different restoration on the roads and stuff and so we were not able to go all that far on this loop. We were stay still able to see some of the prairie dog so they have these big areas where there's tons of prairie dogs and you can hear him talking to each other and we don't have pray dogs at our house in the Rocky Mountain so my kids actually were fascinated by the prairie dogs..
