The Birthplace of Saint Augustine
"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up. He would answer with one word. I wanna be

Traveling To Snowdonia
"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay
Fareed Zakaria on Life After the Pandemic
"For eads. Ikaria joins us now. His latest book is called ten lessons for post pandemic world for read. Thanks so much for being here. It's my pleasure pamela. I have to start with an obvious question just as someone who has a full time job you already have. I think three full-time jobs. As the host of a show on cnn n regular newspaper columnist writer. How in the middle of this pandemic when we're still in the throes of it. Did you go from reporting on sort of the world as it is and at the same time. Write an entire book about what comes after. It's a great question. And i marvel at it myself honestly looking backward but what happened. If you remember obama's in the first few months of the pandemic when the lockdowns began in such everything really shutdown all my travel or every lunch date every dinner date everything went silent and so i had a certain amount of free time and i was grappling with what was going on in the world. How the spend amick was affecting me how it was affecting people. I knew around the world and i started to jot down some thoughts about it partly for the columns and the and the show but then i found myself thinking bigger and i decided you know what i'm going to. I'm going to try and write something about this. And i'm going to do it in the following way. I would get up at six thirty or so. Every morning. And i wouldn't read the newspapers i wouldn't take wouldn't look at twitter. Nothing just to sort of keep my head space in that forward leaning fifteen thousand feet above the above the the land a space and right for about three hours and then i research a little bit. By eleven o'clock. I would get back to normal life and i would just get back to the show in the column and you know my kids who also there with me so i did that for four and a half months every day and weekends included and so what ended up being this incredibly cathartic way from me to deal with covid. Nineteen the pandemic because it made me. It forced me to think through in process what was going on and now look back and think i wouldn't have been able to do it any other period because few months into the maybe three months into it by by june july things that started to come back to normal and now i find my schedule as crowded as it was but there was that four month window and i think just as luck would have it. I took advantage of it. So your mornings were thinking about the future and then you kind of fell back to the present come late morning early afternoon pretty much once my kids would get up and start getting breakfast and things like that by then you know through the reality of life intruded so directly and viscerally that i couldn't i couldn't avoid it so i mean it's interesting because what you were doing really was thinking you know at least two beats into the future we were just getting into the pandemic and then you have to think about. How are we going to get out of the pandemic and then another step from there and so. I'm curious what your process was in in terms of trying to get that far ahead of something. That was already moving very quickly. So i i had to study the science of it to understand how likely it was. We were going to get out of it. And what i came to conclude was that while the public health response that we had seen in the first phase of the crisis was going very badly. There was going to be a second phase of the crisis that was largely private sector lead. That was therapies vaccines. That was likely to be extremely successful. And so i felt as though dependent mc was already changing the way we were thinking about the world and already changing behavior but the pandemic plus lockdown but that we will go to enter into a post pandemic phase. I will be honest. I didn't know whether it was six months later or a year later. But you could see if you studied the people who are doing the vaccines were incredibly bullish on their on their ability to get this done even within the first few weeks they were saying. We'll have something a year now to give people perspective of vaccine by which just ten or fifteen years ago if it can be made it all takes about fifteen years often so the fact that they was sure they could compress the timeframe so radically was a huge events in science that i don't think we've adequately understood but it gave me visibility on a post pandemic work
How To Make Your 2021 Different From Your 2020
"Let's start with where this practice came from. Because i wanna give credit where credit is due john. Maxwell wrote about this. I want to say. John wrote about this in fifteen invaluable laws of growth. If you have never read that book. I want to ask you to put that. On your your. Tb are pile. That's your to be read pile. I want to ask you to put that in your tr pile immediately. Fifteen invaluable laws of growth by john maxwell is the og personal development book. It's like the gateway drug people read that book and then it makes them go. Oh my gosh. What else should i read. What else should i bring into my life. What podcast should i listen to. That's really a book that gets a lot of people excited about elevating and i'm super freaking blast to have john as a real life mentor and friend but honestly even before he was my life mentor. He was my like author mentor. I followed his work and learn lessons from him long before i ever met him in real life so in that book is when he talks about this idea of doing a calendar audit and there's so much incredible information in that work but for some reason in that book. That was like the thing that really stuck with me. If you don't know this about me. I am always looking for ways to become better. I believe that one of the things. I'm here on this earth to do is figure out a better way to do my life. Like how can. I be a better leader. How could it be a better podcast host house. How can be better with my health. How can it be better as apparent. Like i always want to improve i. I am such a nerd for learning tactics and skills. That will help me to have a better life. And when i saw this idea in his book i was like gosh. I really want to try and i did. This was years ago when i did it for the first time. And it was so freaking powerful. You guys. I'm going to walk you through how i do it but i just want to tell you. My first experience of doing a calendar audit the first time that i did a calendar audit. I really fell in love with the practice. Because i'm gonna be honest. It was the first time that i really did a post mortem on my life. Now if you're not familiar with the idea of a post mortem this is something that we do in business all the time if we have a big project or we have something that we've launched sure we spend a bunch of money on or recreated something for you guys in the community. We meet up as a team afterwards and we do. What's called a post mortem which is like okay. We got through this big thing that we invested time and money and energy into. Let's talk about what was great. And let's talk about what we could improve for next time and let's talk about what straight up was wrong. I had done that in business a million times. It never occurred to me to do it for my life. And when i did it for my life i found frankly the very first time i did it. I was super disappointed. I was super disappointed with myself. Because i realized how much time i was wasting on the wrong things. If you like okay. Are you guys familiar with the twenty principal or prado's principle. If you're not familiar look it up. There's a billion books on this topic. I'll just give you a quick. Like fifty thousand foot view at the idea of the eighty twenty principle eighty twenty. Is this law of like life and business and results and success. That shows again and again and again that twenty percent of your effort produces eighty percent of your results. Twenty percent of your customers equate to eighty percent of your revenue. Twenty percent of the things that you do for your health equal eighty percent of the results that you see. I'm not perfectly explaining this idea but basically the gist is. You're spending all of this time and energy on all of these things when really only twenty percent of the stuff you're doing is actually giving you results. If you can focus in tighter and tighter on the things that are just your twenty percent. And you just focused on those imagine the exponential growth. You would see in your life.
How to watch SpaceX’s first high-altitude Starship test on Tuesday
"If you buy your computer tomorrow and don't have to be doing dedicated. Work space x first high altitude now. This is being required on thursday. So if it's if you listening this after friday at nine am eastern too late but spacex first high altitude starship test. Could weather permitting happened tuesday. They're going to send the starship prototype thirty thousand feet in the air so this is much bigger leap. That s an eight prototype is on the launch pad in boca chica. Texas and spacex is. Confirm this its first. High altitude test could take place as soon as tuesday is elon. Musk probably described. The test will see the starship reach as high is fifteen kilometers. Fif thousand feet. A live stream of the event on youtube is set to become available. Seventy m and the extra time in the test is dynamic. Okay so maybe not at nine. Am so seventy m. excuse me seventy of texas time. Let me click on this goes. There was a link. I think it was nine. Am eastern which makes sense So alon must've things taking a little longer and So yeah so it starts at nine. Am my time.

Mastering the Go-Around with Rob Mark
"Tell people just kind of from the high level view what is go around and one. The some of the reasons that pilots might have to go arounds. Go around is a situation in which sure the aircraft is on final somewhere planning to land. You may be stabilized. You may not be when we talk about stabilized. We mean someone. That's not a thousand feet in the air half mile off the end of the runway diving to make the numbers. That's not stabilized. But that somehow the pilot realizes that this landing is not gonna turn out the way i wanted it to. I may the way it's going. I may land way further down the runway that i planned and you got to go back and do this again. And you push the power in a adjust the flaps to with a climb flaps. And you go around and you do it again. But that transition from getting the airplane setup for landing often you have full flaps landing flaps in to getting it to pitch up and climb and add the power and not bring the nose up so steeply that the plane stalls. That's quite an awful lot of work. As is the part up here with us. Transitioning your mind from. I'm gonna land to god. I'm not going to land. I've got to go around so again. Usually pilots see it early on but sometimes they don't and you know go around really needs to happen early enough so that there's not chaos in the cockpit and go around of course don't have to be initiated by the pilot. Atc might tell you to go around and for example. Sometimes when i'm landing at my home airport here in palo alto with people that i'm working with. Clients who are in the left seat will be spaced out nicely and then suddenly. Atc will put an aircraft on the runway at almost always. I clients at that point. Be prepared we might have to do a go around because often the spacing is so tight that that aircraft may not get off in time. So i think a lot of go round situations can be anticipated and certainly as you talked about stable approaches. That's really the core to a good landing. We had a see. If i'm meeting it at my flying club where they had analysed all the past incidents and they said that fully eighty percent of all those incidents could have been avoided by timely. Go around well. I think you just mentioned another really interesting point about you. Telling the person in the other seat heard that. Atc call you know that means we might be ready for go around here what you want what we as instructors want is we want the the student or the person the left seat to say You know what that sounds like. We better be prepared for a go route. You don't want them to depend on you to tell them that we want to see them. Recognize it and be prepared with a possible action somewhere along the line. We'll we'll talk a minute about some of the mechanics of doing go arounds. But i i that we might talk about stabilized approaches. And i've got something here which i've just brought up. Let's talk through this. These are the criteria that cirrus has in their flight operations manual for what constitutes a stabilized approach. And i think a lot of pilots have some vague general idea of what stabilized approaches. But they're actually a lot of different criteria to it so let. Let's talk through some of these. I think it's it's very interesting that we look and you see Six criteria for this stabilized approach and the one being airspeed. I flew with a student last year. Who was absolutely certain before he would start it. He knew how to fly because even playing with the flight sim for years. And we got on the down wind. And i said okay. Don't you start the turn to base now when you think it is it is necessary and we got opposite the numbers and he just crank this airplane around into about up forty degree bank and kind of the knows that what okay. This is going to be interesting. When of course we ended up really high and really fast and i had to tell him to go around and later on. We'll be debriefed. I said what was that about. He said. I don't know that always worked in flights him. I could always make it work and flights out and is too young but let's get in the right mindset. This is not flight sim. And and of course the reason the proper airspeed is so important is because you're landing criteria. Well i'll have this thing down and stopped in about twelve hundred feet. Or whatever is based on crossing the end of the runway at the proper airspeed. If you're ten knots high depending on the airplane you can extend that landing distance quite a bit in pilots might say sorry. Our port has a five thousand foot runway but you may not always operate from five thousand foot runway. And what happens when you're not on a five thousand foot runway on a day when it's starting to drizzle and the runways a little wet and you touchdown long past way past where you think you should and you try to get on the brakes to stop and the airplane might give you a little surprise on the ground so proper speed is absolutely a good place to begin and i usually tell fox. Try and keep it within a few knots. I mean i'd like to see them at the target reference speed. You know plus or minus a couple of knots and that's really important because our airfield is very short. And if you're in nuts fast you better be going around especially if your landing in the high-performance aircraft like the cirrus. Let's see a couple others here so correct flightpath. So essentially we've got gotta be a lined up on the center of the the runway and we've got to be essentially on the glide slope or the glide path so if it's an instrument approach where on the glide slope if were flying visually then were on the vase e or the pappy or whatever visual guidance we have but what. Tell us about some of the others here. Well i think being on the glide path is is a good one because so many airports the as have an old vase ozzy or a pappy or light or something which is a series of red and white lights to give you a visual. Clo- that you're on target to touchdown in the touchdown zone and if if you find that you're turning final close in and you're seeing nothing but white lights you're in trouble and then because your way high and if you happen to also be fast trust me you are not going to get down in the touchdown zone and as we talked about earlier you may land way past the touchdown point. You think so. The goal of all this is to get you to look and see a consistent place we want to see. The pilot have a consistent view of the runway so that every landing looks pretty much the same when they have the same airspeed and the same flap setting. And we know that they're confident that they're gonna touchdown in the first. Say the first third of the runway. Because if they're not and they're looking at that going anytime something in your brain says. I think this is gonna work. We'll probably be okay when your brain starts spitting out words like that even if it's not verbally it's time to go around and do it again. You don't get points off for reform messing it up the first couple of times. The real secret is to realize it's not right and we'll go back and fix it.
"Researchers are designing human in the loop experiments to make approach and landing as safe as possible. This innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shape our future. A stabilized approach for landing is based on the pilots interpretation of certain visual clues for every three nautical miles flown over the ground. The aircraft should descend one thousand feet but pilots must control speed calculate descent rates and use precision instruments to ensure. They're not landing too high too. Fast or out of alignment with the runway. Faa researchers are testing pilot reactions to various approach and landing scenarios by putting actual pilots into flight simulators. At the william j hughes technical center. The simulators can be programmed to mimic different conditions. Information is collected about the pilot's ability to recover and whether the pilot had adequate data in the cockpit to make safe decisions about landing. The research will help determine the kind of training pilots need and the effectiveness of new instruments in the cockpit because a stabilized approach and landing is the best way to avoid a loss of aircraft control
How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?
"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great
Interview With Matthew McConaughey
"Hanging out there. I'm a lifelong new yorker Hanging out in crested butte colorado. Right now and On monday night there was barely any moon in this guy. Nine thousand feet so there's no clouds and there's a meteor shower and it was on the news so i went outside so midnight. I'm standing out in the middle of nowhere. Like ink black skies that stores are just dripping into the ground and they're shooting stars kenley going across and i've got you in my right ear half reaching half telling stories and just thinking to myself. This is an interesting moment. My go-to places always been nature. It's where i stone and it seems like for you. There's somethin' can magical about the combination of nature in solitude. Also yeah. I like that term issues. It's where i touch stone. You said i like that. I'll steal that but a footnote you Yeah for me on just on always can measure. I'm sam in la. I'm in new york. And i'm working. I'm hammered thanks On the day to day gallaudet responsibilities. I'm good at doing that. But all of a sudden when i find is go i'll get ahead of time meaning arab six o'clock yet it's four. Twenty two off cheeks will slow down. So if i go click off check out to have my time in nature or be outside. Get back with the rhythm. That's my vertically stacked responsibilities income comeback guys it was fuel embassy to about three fifteen and i look at the mark o'clock. Don't wear a watch the phone as three seven t there we go okay like a minute or two behind actually my favorite spot just a hair like that like that like a great drummer Like the like. The drummer was on that That that was a these things drivers just on the back side of of the to not not on the front side of the wave just on the back side of the way and then i find that things. All that vertically stacked responsibilities that i'm feeling like accomplishes accomplished knock this down. And i you know start to run on reserve that lays down and becomes lateral in front of me and i can see it all sudden instead of the proverbial weight on the shoulders of that large stack. There's no late on the show because now it's loud in front of me. I can see wanted time. Gotta hop from lily badly. Get just as much or more with a lot less stress after and that's what nature gives me that clock. I think for me yes. No i love that man that really resonates also been thinking. Interestingly we're in this moment in time where the rate of not just speed but acceleration of everything boom boom boom boom boom. It feels like the way that most people are trying to quote keep up with that keep their head above water. Hold on for dear. Life is to accommodate by trying to develop the skill of moving faster right. And it's interesting because for me. What i've been really thinking about lately and kinda see is similar to what you just described is will maybe the better way to handle. This is actually light to cultivate the practices that allow you to slow down time and discern what really matters rather than trying to take it all in and keep up with everything you will the bandwidth we definitely. We would definitely some universally agreed on governor or sifter or or a drain to sift out a lot of needless frequencies or the did the non-constructive frequencies to make room for clear channel for the stuff that matters. That's dog onshore in may be that by process of elimination by process would make room for the things that that that really do matter. That are successful that you can you know have make a living with as well but also Feed us may make room for that those bandwidths to to be de bruyne lighter and have more of an auto bahn you know in their transference To and from us and when they get us even more of an audubon from art nugget to our heart you know that's another audubon frequency. I mean there's just a much sifted through. I think matters what doesn't end what's that governor for society enforces individuals. His oh this actually matched. And i sometimes think that society has gotten to point now where they actually see most of news frequencies that they all that sorta like. I'm taking it too seriously. Maybe like come on man. You don't need to believe that now. They're kind kinda feel excited behind the rag on lincoln to we know it's all soft porn. We gotta get it. We know it's all tmz. I mean this whole even even gleaning big about that with politics. It's up and go. Is everyone kind of get. Get the g. And is that a good thing that things that we had reverence for courtrooms that were never. We were never allowed in political leadership positions. That were by over there in that place on top of that hill that now we like. Oh that we've been in. There would be

How to Avoid Deadly Weather-Related Accidents with Rob Mark
"Today of course. We're going to talk about that via far into imc It's it's not a new Reason at all that people are hurting themselves in airplanes In fact it's been around for quite a long time. I just finished in fact writing a story for flying magazine. That'll be out. I believe next issue About via far. And i m seeing and of course we all know what happens. People fly into whether that they have no business. Being in but big question is why so. Maybe that's some of what we're going to talk about today while everything we're talking about today is certainly weather related. And the unfortunate thing about via far into imc accidents is that ninety percent of them. Fatal which makes them the most lethal of any kind of an accident. So if you're gonna have an accident don't have a fear foreign to die. mc accident. I did a study years ago where i looked at via foreign. Imc accidents over a ten year period. And i was wondering do instrument pilots also have them. The answer was yes so they have them at a somewhat lower rate and i think There were certainly times. When i was not current as an instrument pilot and so i would fly via far and you've just got to maintain those normal via far visibility cloud clearance minimums otherwise even if our pilots could find themselves Going into imc and having an accident. Well i think that when we we are training pilots Will often ask them. Okay give me. The cloud clearances for For via far won't see five hundred of below a thousand above two thousand horizontally from you got it baby but the question is does a pilot really understand what that looks like. When they're flying via far how do they. How do they tell. When they're five hundred feet below or a thousand above or two thousand feet horizontally from because most of us never really get up there in those kinds of conditions to say okay. Here's what those minimums look like. And unfortunately i think that People fly into whether and then they say oh my gosh in the first thing they do is always look down and looking down does nothing more then make the situation worse because you're in the clouds there is no down there is no up. There's no left and right An unless you're really current on instruments up you're gonna lose control of the airplane so the key is is some good risk management to make sure that you don't fly when those conditions are possible or that you give them a very very wide birth which of course we're gonna find in this accident Today this pilot did not give the weather at all yeah. I've had at least two times. That i can remember in my forty years of flying where i went to from via far into. Imc one case was at night. And boy. I was working absolutely as hard as i could to avoid. The clouds were in a metro area. Things were reasonably well lit with the surface lighting and yet we still found ourselves in a cloud. There are times when it's just virtually impossible to see the cloud no matter what you do now. A particular case. We were very close to francisco bay. So i knew that a slight turn to the right. Put me over the water. Push for a little bit pop back out of the cloud but yeah pilots set and really need to kind of anticipate win. This might happen and have a good strategy for how to avoid it now. A great strategy. Especially for people with an autopilot. Snap the autopilot on and then do a one eighty. That's true and and of course. I don't think we're going to know in this particular accident yet whether the pilot used the autopilot or not He certainly never used the the shoot in the sarah's so again we know where this was going. And i think that sometimes when we train students as well that we're not clear with them about the fact that if you do this you will not only hurt yourself. You can possibly kill yourself in anybody in the airplane along with you. I

Today has done in the navy as a navy seal. We're going to talk about that. We're connected on many levels. He's like my brother now. You're my big brother. So we're we're gonna talk about photography. We're gonna talk about his experiences being a photographer being a navy seal photographer and getting some of the shots did some of us just dream about getting. We're also gonna talk about this thing right here uncommon grit so. This is a book that he just published. That has a bunch of the photos that he took on that journey throughout the years. We're going to talk about all that all it's coming up right now be was going on man how you doing good man. Thanks for having me appreciate it. You know it's like you know we work with the air force again. Yes exactly so. I tell you what you'd be going. Air force base is awesome and those guys we were talking about earlier. It's like all we do is we're on deployment. Also we wanted that. Damn cheese tortellini. Mr and then you go there or face and go and do donna facility and they got damn pop tarts got doughnuts breakfast sandwiches and mike.

I don't understand. I know like we show up. We're like hey what can we get for this really cool navy seal dive knife like wow a semi two inch plasma screen okay. Sold as greasy work work with air force the. Pj's fantastic and those their you know what they did there Just phenomenal people. So you know it was. Yeah it s great to scrape to her. She wanted to work with you on the other side with photography which is really and here. We are right. Who knew who i keep. This book is part of my permanent collection. Now so thanks again presented over amazing. So let's let's talk about first. Let's before we dive into the book piece of this. Give give give us kind of the overview of your journey from you know not knowing anything about photography publishing an amazing book like dream that you know i. It's it's really very very very unique. Journey is just the it started with Graduated seal training and ninety six class to await from there. It went to silting to Did a bunch of deployments was silting created. Seal team ten. So that shifted me over silty mate but there were talking about like liberia. Were afghanistan iraq. So it was like four. Five combat deployments before i got a break and when i got a break that's in the navy airforce auto the air force's rotation but the navy break is five and two so it's five years deploying two years at a advanced training command. Get your senses back together train and then get back out there For me it was ten years. But when i got out there i got sent out to military freefall school in arizona and it's joint commands. Were there with like army navy with that. You know that's where my journey began this two thousand and seven and you know actually even be out there teaching free like ours. I was already a navy seal for ten years. I had to be a basic wall. Which is your static. Line basic military freefall called basic static. Line jump master military freefall jump master and then when i got out there ended up being a military freefall instructor military. Freefall instructor examiner And so An accelerated freefall Accelerated freefall coach excessive rainfall instructor essen. Tna select basic all the calls for air and then a everything. Now you're jumping out of a c. One thirty at sixteen thousand feet with With new operators never jump before and you tap on the show them the jump out and my job was just hang with them and just with the mix. You don't screw up getting getting back straight whatever they need to do and make sure they poll and and go from there and then i I started doing video because video. And what you're gonna learn at military freefall because you can't see what you're doing because you're you're free some students are all over the place you know and so do the video but one morning It was really really early. I don't know what. I think we're trying to beat some weather pattern. That was coming in and we were like literally. The ramp is open on like like probably five. Am just as the sun is like creeping up and the whole desert was just like beautiful reds yellows oranges and i was like man. I should Somebody should take a picture of this is really cool and then i'm like oh i guess i should figure that out you know are and so. That's soy started. Just google unlike the went to dr google photography you know and then that started my journey and the number you know it just you learn and then i go to barnes and noble. As a matter of fact. I went to barnes and noble at my old seal team to dive log from my last a combat dives that i did and i went all the way to the back. Full of the paged. I put my semi kids over to the kids section. You know when. I sat there like digital photography. Open up books going. Wow this is this is going to be interesting. And then i take notes and put the book back. You know. i'm that guy. Sorry i'm the guy. I would well at that time. He knows i'm in the military. I had three kids. You know with that. You're obviously for me that my life is unhappily married so to me it was. I was broke and i can feel the book. Twenty five bucks. I'm like well. I gotta take my kids to you know to the movies so i'm like i'd so it's anyway long story short right down. That's what i did.
Interview With Matthew McConaughey
"Matthew. Welcome to the show. Good to be here. Tim. How are you sir? I'm doing very well, and I have just an embarrassment of riches in front of me in terms of notes that I would love to to take some stab at covering even a portion of and I thought we could begin with a little backstory for those people who know your work perhaps not your personal story. Let's paint a picture of your parents now lives in preparation for this conversation doing some homework and I came across a quote of yours feel free to fact, check this of course is from the Guardian but it says one of the great images I have my father is on the phone with a cigarette at the airport on the pay phone always peddling. Peddling pipe and how What is what is that for those who don't know been coupling? So he ruin the old business and to drill you obviously pipe couplings connect the pipe to drill for oil. So Dad was in the pipe coupling business and he was he would call it peddling pipe, Paralympic no John Pendant peddling pipe and that twenty did on the phone eight to six, and then he hit the road and Go make personal appearances China. So pipe, he started off as a truck driver than Texaco station down you've Audi we moved to longview Texas oil boom within like six months after being in Longview. Dad like twenty six employees under him. That's how big of an oil boom was, and then obviously at that business through I think around eighty two and he kind of held on from there he was always. Always, peddler is line was great. He was always be never did it never went bankrupt and that was a piece of honor for him not to go bankrupt but he was always after all boom sort of busted he was always act boys if I could just. I just hit a lick and he never did hit that lick. But if if he lick is. Big Sale Olympic is a big cow lick is okay Mr. Jim Magana. Hey I want all my pipe from you and we're going to drill two hundred thousand feet above abide. So says huge count on my Gosh I'm going to supply the pipe to this one large account that would be a lick he never quite yet. So we're going to jump to the other track with mom for a second here and at like to have conversation about or description maybe of mink oil. Could you tell us how oil entered your life? Please I would not be here talking to you right now if it wasn't for the oil of Meek Yeah It was about home fourteen, fifteen years old ninth grade adolescence. My mom starts pedaling again Pentland Milan family was pedaling something my mom starts pedaling this oil of me product door to door sales. Look here you put this mink oil on your face it brings out all the impurities that you have and watch those impurities all come out. You then have clear glowing in for the rest of your life that was sort of the sales pitch right? Well, I'm fifteen I got a few pimples as any fifteen year old does one night. My mom goes well, you should choose this all. Great you're let me do that. Sure. So I started putting this oil make on my face every night before I go to bed, and after about a week, I wake up and got more pimples than I had a week. And I check in the mirror go to Mama as don't she goes that exactly what is supposed to to pull out all the impurities keep doing it stick with it sure. I'd just religiously keep putting it on after two weeks. Now seem to be run into a problem. He I've got I've. got a whole full of pimples and it's it's it's getting pretty severe back. She's Oh. Wow. You've just got more impurities then I thought you just keep keep doing it going to keep bringing out those impurities I keep it up three weeks. Go by now I've got full blown acne and I'm really concerned my mom's staying on with no stick with it all coming out well I sneak off to the dermatologist on my own. And this was not my mom's recommendation I, sneak there on. In, take a bottle of this Mako. Doc Look at my face. This is put on your face shown this bodies liberty reads ladies like Oh no, no, no, no, no no. No this is i. someone that's like forty year old or not a teenage child who's got oily pours anyway this blocking your pores your pores can't breathe. You are ten days away from having ice pick holes in your face from acne get you off this. Okay as we also have to get you on this stuff got accutane. It's a years worth of medicine. It will dry you up there will have its complications, but it'll be better than in the acting that you can have APSO boom. I could on the accutane off the oil of make and around that time my dad who's always as peddling and look and how to hit lick. says. Damn Boy I. We got a lawsuit against his company. Them becoming I mean you're you're looking at me look you. You're all swollen up. So he takes me to see lawyer remember lawyers, Jerry hairs. So I'm sitting down with my dad and his lawyer Jerry Harrison new think we got a case and he asked me like you know, hey, did you confidence lower? We know with these these pimples you've got this acne down by guess Sir because we are you doing good with the girls and I said, no, sir, not at all he his eyes light up and I can tell that even at my age fifteen he he's building his case goes. Emotional. Distress you were under emotional are under emotional distress and I look at them and I'm like Sure Yeah Moshe stress in Jerry's. Gosh Dog, we can get thirty five to fifty thousand dollars. Emotional distress go long way Jim Medaglia caught. At fifty thousand dollars a way to goes on, and so that's getting all excited about this deal. We're GONNA make fifty thousand dollars off of my emotional distress is youngest son. So anyway, meanwhile on accutane. Takes a year to get clear up and you get Scaly Dandruff in your knees. Hurt you get slits in your mouth and everything else but much better than this acne and this Jackie clear in this acne up on my faith well, as lawsuits go they drag on awhile. So come two years later I'm back in Jerry Harrison office sitting across the table from the from the defense attorney and now my Hackley's cleared up. Okay and this lawyer sits there and starts off the conversation with us. Oh my gosh.

My confidence was low wasn't doing well with girls. I mean man it was bad stuff. Sir and I'm sitting here thinking we got this case.
Your Next Flying Adventure in Hawaii with Fly Maui
"Love Looking things out the window, the airplane like everybody. Else. I, Love Lighthouses in Wales and I think that the Hawaiian especially Maui it'd be a perfect spot for that. But in your words I mean, why do people WANNA go fly in Maui? All Karl is now there's a lot of different reasons you know first of all people love to come to Hawaii to Maui specifically is just like. some people do it as an aviation? Adventure and it just makes it really fine. So they'll you know vacation they'll have some downtime, the beach they'll do some more interesting like hiding, and of course, incorporate flying in and organised talk about the opportunities as a pilot. You can visit your specifically in a few minutes but you know Hawaiian was it is paradise the the climate is amazing. The beaches are uncrowded. It's low key laid back in the. General aviation ramp it's everybody's friendly. A the spirit Aloha is all around just like in a lot of are other general aviation airports but the weather's awesome. I would say we are fueled actually went far couple of days ago, and you can probably count on one hand the number times in a year that we actually go I-. Afar into says you just amazing flying missions we have here. It's great for applied school. Our students hardly ever have a down day because the weather and Maui is pretty unique just because of the topography here where it's located. Just on our little island eleven of the fourteen worlds climate zones are found here so You're on the beach and lay layout or over in Fong Holly and get too hot and sweaty from being outside and being in the sand than you can always go up to your. The summit of Holly, Autho? which is a dormant shield volcano. It's over ten thousand feet at the summit and usually stays around fifty degrees during the daytime up there. So you can go up there and full off just so much to see endure, and of course, from the air getting to see all that is so unique. Really a diverse environment also the fact that you can go and cool off so much make you bet there's probably somewhere in Hawaii I'm not sure that you can go skiing I would think I know service Maui. Yeah it does happen just. Seems like once a year last February we we had six eight inches at the summit and on the Big Island, which is about seventy eighty miles from here. The three summits, their twelve, thirteen, thousand they actually do have people that because they'll have moral snowcap or longer to town. So they'll actually go have some guys get out snowboards.
Sole Survivor: The 1869 Yellow Jacket Silver Mine Fire
"April seventh eighteen, sixty, nine, the miners of gold hills yellow jacket mine said goodbye to their families and went to work like any other day. They had no idea that many of them wouldn't ever make it back home. Later that morning uncontrollable methane fire broke out at the minds eight hundred foot level collapsing timbers, and quickly spreading to neighbouring minds. The miners were trapped below with no chance for escape in what was probably the worst mining accident in Nevada history. Yeah. They used to have those methane lamps the did in the minds and they would go out if the methane levels got to a certain level and. Stuff like the candles. And Methane Cub Blam Yeah Oh. Yeah. I mean, I worry about that a lot too because I have a buddy. My best. But up in Idaho Jim Belton he works in a silver mine too and I always worry about them I. mean they have air blast it's. Very dangerous. I got nothing but mad respect for minors man yeah. It's hard work. Hammer Dangerous Oh. Yeah. Working deep any earth as a minor is a job with many hazards including poison gases, explosions collapses, floods, and fires to name a few. To minors like James Dunlavey, the risks were just part of the job. Dunlavey did not dwell on those dangers as he worked in the yellow jacket mine in Gold Hill Nevada, the mind and sister mineshafts were burrowed more than one thousand feet into the Earth as they extracted silver from the comstock lode. Each labyrinth of Mining Chamber was supported with heavy timbering in this tinderbox would minors lit their work with candles or lamps in the US blasting powder fractured the or for removal? The yellow jacket was a great silver producing property at the extreme southern end of the comstock lode. Nothing was more feared by gold and silver miners in a fire in a mine. As the pockets of or a cut away taken out cavities or chambers are created. The overhanging ledges of rocks are supported by Timbers to prevent the rock from caving following the tunnels are drifts reaching out for hundreds of feet in many directions from the shaft completely lined with beams and boards. Sometimes enormous cavities in a mine created by the removal of great pockets of or require eight, hundred and nine hundred thousand feet of timber that is. As Lot would yeah, it is. That's a that's a lot of flammable dangerous would had certainly is. Once again mad props because I have seen some of these things. You've seen it in movies I've seen it in real life. Yeah. It's some of these areas they are vast. Hoping for for your one hundred yards in some cases. And there's nothing supporting this rock, right? Right. I mean it's solid rock. It's holding together but man what is like caves but this is man made stuff see. So you know cave ins and stuff always dangerous. The shaft is face with heavy timbers links a deep and well-worked mind becomes a stupendous subterranean honeycomb of lumber. If a fire broke out any part of the lower levels of a deep mine, it would create a difficult situation for firefighters to get to any minors below level or beyond the point in the drift where fire occurs have little to no chance to survive. They are almost certainly killed before the fire reaches him by suffocation from gases or smoke that reached him I. Yep, and it Burns all the oxygen. Now, the chef exactly no suffocate drop them. It's bad. The comstock minds went down two to three thousand feet into the sides of Mount Davidson which increase the danger of fire would cause. So around eight am on Tuesday. April six, eighteen, sixty, nine. The nightshift miners were clocking out in the early days shift honors coming in. A careless minor perhaps tired from a long night or just excited to be heading home left a candle burning on a wall of timber. Some nine hundred feet deep in the mind which eventually set fire to supporting timbers food. The candle probably burned for hours and served as a life for the miners but having been left behind the flame eventually reached the pinewood on which it stood. The blaze started a chain reaction of disasters. Yeah. I bet it did Dunleavy who was working on the nine hundred foot level was alerted to the catastrophe when he heard the distinct crashing a falling rock. Debris tunnels forcing choking gases and dust into the yellow jacket in neighboring Kentucky Chefs. While running along the nine hundred foot level dunleavy spotted a wall of flame as he raced towards the main shaft, he gave the signal for fire, but the crackling of the Burn Pine Timbers was so loud that his warning shots were drowned out you. Dunleavy, remembered sending at the opening of the nine hundred foot level upon the yellow jacket shopped and heard the screams of minors on the levels below. Airport and from the Kentucky Mind acted like billows and fan configuration as it swept along the nine hundred and eight hundred foot levels and through the laterals to another neighboring mine. That is horrible. It's terrifying is. Horrible what a WAY TO GO TO UTAH? No, you would just. Yeesh the roof collapse around Dunleavy, and he began to choke on the fumes and dust he lay on the floor and pulled a heavy overcoat over himself. This act helped save his life. He was the sole survivor of the nine miners nine hundred foot level. He slipped into unconsciousness and did not wake until hours after he had been rescued

And I said, well, yeah, I certainly would thank you before getting his car. I pulled out my pistol and I tossed it of twenty feet. He didn't see it and his wife didn't see me do that. And then I got into car and you said it's not it's not say to be on the streets tonight. There's a lot of excitement. I said, yeah, I know I've heard about the the search that's going on here for that skyjacked. So he said, yeah, there's a lot of FBI around here. I said, I can imagine. They drove a couple of miles into town where the police chief dropped Martin off and my my inclination was to grab. Car our car and get out of the year. But then on reflection, I said, no, I can't do that. If a car comes up missing here reported stolen. Chief of police has my name and he could connect to into. So I said, I can't do that. Decide I couldn't hitchhike either. It's too hot. So I walked around in, I noticed a bar at the end of the road. At the street there and walked into the bar. Got up. Own order to drink. You're about ten or fifteen people in his bar. They were. They were looking at me. Yeah, they were looking at me. I wondered about that. So I went into the bathroom and I looked in the mirror and I looked mess. I looked a mess. Both eyes were Brown in my Chen was looked like admin, ripped and little bloody, and my hair was a mess.

He then went back into the bar and order to hamburger and a beer around midnight. He went to a hotel. The hotel clerk was listening to radio reports about the hijacker. She joked, you're not the hijacker. Are you Martin just smiled and went up to his room. I was looking out the window looking down the street or a lot of cars on the street, and there were two men walking walking on the street and they weren't in suits and they were looking. The windows and yeah, I figured they were FBI. I understand the antibody, two hundred FBI agents. Searching plus local police and so forth. The money was soon found in a field by soybean farmer. A couple of hours later. Another farmer ran over the gun with his tractor. Their searched for Martin was intensifying, hit a friend come pick him up and drive him back to Michigan. He didn't think anybody knew who he was. So he just went home and immediately he started making plans to do it all again without losing the money. This time, he bragged to a friend about it, but Martin know that the FBI was already watching his house. So. You do end up getting arrested. Yes. ES I do. Almost six days after Martin hijacked the plane. A dozen FBI agent surrounded him as he was walking home one night, they'd found his fingerprints on the plane. And on the note that he'd handed to the flight attendant, they also searched his house and found ammunition and parts of gun. He was charged with two counts of federal aircraft piracy.

"After David Hanley smashed his Cadillac into Martin McNally's plane at eighty miles an hour. Morton didn't give up. He just asked for a new plane. This new plane would need to be fully fueled and parked is close as possible. They would have to move from the damage plane to this new one without anybody making a run for it and without anybody getting the chance to aim a gun at Martin very nervous, very nervous. I would say always even scared that that wall normal position. And I told the the pilot Talia FBI and the ground. I know they got sharpshooters that are going to try to pick me off. I know they have cameras trying to get photos and if I see any. Any lights, any lights or any teams. This thing could come to a screeching halt. Very quick with an explosion. I said, I don't want to see any hanky-panky when we make the move from playing the plane. It took an hour and a half for it to arrive when it did Martin changed planes using to flight attendants for cover and holding his briefcase over his head. It was almost two thirty in the morning when they took off from the new plane towards drano. He had hoped to take off from Saint Louis by midnight and jump out of the plane by one AM, but they were now hours behind schedule which posed a problem because he knew we needed to jump before the sun came up. So that's what that's what happened. I made a decision either bail out then that's what I did, but you would never you would never used. Parachute before, never in my life. At I put on a parachute. Did you have anyone who helped you on the plane? I mean, how did you know how to put this thing on? I try to. Do it myself, get this Horace situated. And as I'm doing this, the four stewardesses are standing around me, and I told one of them I need to clip these leg leg straps. I need to get these leg straps put on properly. And at one point she says, I don't think we're supposed to be doing this. I said, young lady plea me trust me. You're supposed to be doing everything I tell you to do. No, it's get this Hornets taken care of. So that would happen. I mean, I'd be happy to get you off that plane. I'd be ready to throw yell at the door. Yeah, yeah. I guess you. He used twine to tie the forty five pound mail bag full of money to his leg. He also threaded his belt to the loop of the bag to make it more secure and that he was ready to jump. I was very worried. I was very worrying when I was on the plane just getting ready to bail out. I had second thoughts, and I said, yeah, this is this. This. I have some options here. I can go up to the cockpit and give him the gun until this joke, or I can kill myself or I can take a chance on Bela note, I decided, well, I better Bill and if I make it fine, if I don't it, death comes quick. He could only see the clouds below him. The goggles ripped off of his head. He counted to twenty and pulled the Ripcord. And when he did the jolt of the parachute opening was so hard, the buckles on the belt, holding the money backs. Now, the twine wasn't enough to hold the bag alone, and the bag went flying. The money was gone. I said, I'm gonna do this again in two weeks and I landed underground. Yeah. My head slammed against the dirt and I jumped up. I see stars. And I heard a lot of dogs barking lot of dogs barking I mean, the dogs must have known something up. But I started walking towards the trees because I knew I couldn't get a car. With my head being smashed up, like it was it was pitch dark. One percent laid on the parachute and crawled into the parachute and went to sleep. I think it was about five o'clock PM that actually got up and brushed off my close and my shoes shine my shoes a little bit, put the parachute under the tree and over some lease and headed out to a road Martin had no idea where he was, but he assumed the FBI was already looking for him. He decided to hitchhike into town. Finally, a car stopped for him, the chief of police..

"Hijacked between nineteen sixty eight and nineteen seventy-two. Sometimes there was more than one case of air piracy on the same day. Anyone go to try it. Anyone good try. And quite frankly, a lot of people were doing doing it back then during the nineteen sixties. It was most common for people to board planes and demand to be taken to Cuba. People trying to leave the United States to make a political statement, but also criminals seeking ransom payments. Airline companies, and the US government came up with some unusual solutions pilots flying to any destination were provided with charts, outlining routes to Vanna just in case hijackings to Cuba were so common that in nineteen sixty eight time magazine published an article, it vies passengers to just stay calm and enjoy the mo- hito it included tips for the best hotels and cigar shopping. The federal government went so far as to consider building a fake version of the Havana airport in Florida. So hijacked planes could land there instead. Ted, the Federal Aviation Administration formed an anti hijacking task force and solicited ideas from the public. The public made suggestions like installing trapdoors or Ming flight attendants with tranquilizer darts and making everyone on the plane where boxing gloves. So no one could hold a gun. The obvious solution was to screen passengers with a metal detector, but airlines thought the inconvenience of walking through a metal detector outweighed the inconvenience of being threatened at gunpoint ten thousand feet in the air airlines argued that increased security would be bad for business. Customers didn't wanna wait in line or feel like criminals on their way to vacation. So on the afternoon of June twenty third nineteen seventy two. When Martin breezed onto his flight at the Saint Louis airport, he didn't expect any trouble at all. We took off. And we're on our way to Tulsa Oklahoma and about fifty minutes. Auditory. Also the pilot came on the intercom. And he said, we'll be landing about fifty minutes. So I sat there and I said, this is it. I gotta make a decision if I land in Tulsa and don't pull this thing right now and be stuck in Tulsa, Oklahoma. So I said eater pump up, you're gone ads or forget about it. So I asked the guy where the restroom was in the plane and said, it's in the back on the radiant side. So I picked up my attic, shake ace very cautiously and headed to the bathroom. When in the bathroom, close the door, lock the door and open the attache case and pulled out the pelote away. And pull out the gloves and then pulled out the the rifle. Martin says, he kicked the safety back on the rifle, so he wouldn't accidentally fire bullet into the plane's fuselage. He put on what newspapers later described as a hippie type wig. Then he opened the bathroom door and crouch down the aisle. At the back of the plane was waving waving to the stewardesses, but nobody knows. Stewardesses could see me did see me for about three minutes. Finally, a stewardess saw me and came back in her. She was a young lady and she's don't hurt anybody. And I said, young lady, I'm not here to earn anybody. I'm here to give the pilot a message, and I said, take this note of to the pilot come back here immediately. So that's what she did. What did the note say? Did you written it at home? Yes, I typed it at home on a. Operator, and actually I had the original and the carbon copy. And by mistake I gave the stewardess the carbon copy and the carbon copy didn't have the red ball type that was on the original hard to right. Yeah, it we owed him a little harder to read, but the willing got just of it. This is a skyjackings. All I want is the money. Here's the instructions that you need to do. Notify the FBI I want five hundred two thousand dollars. Why the extra two thousand? Why not just make any spent that spending money that would have been pocket change? Martin says his plan was to bury the half million dollar package wherever you happen to land after jumped out of the plane and use the extra two thousand dollars to get back home to Michigan, pick up his car and drive to Canada. He would come back and dig up the half million once things cool down. But first he had to get the money..

"On the day before thanksgiving in nineteen seventy one, a man using the name, Dan Cooper, but a twenty dollar one way ticket from Portland to Seattle. He paid in cash. He boarded the plane set towards the back and order to bourbon and soda. When the plane took off, he handed the flight attendant. A note she put it away without looking at. She seemed he was trying to give her as number. She was used to businessmen trying to flirt with her. But when the man saw that she didn't look at it. He leaned over and whispered, miss, you'd better. Look at that note, I have a bomb. The note told her to sit down beside him. And when she did the man opened his briefcase inside, there were eight red cylinders attached to wires. The flight attendant took the man's demands to the pilot when the plane landed. He wanted to hundred. Thousand dollars and four parachutes. Once the plane landed the man let all of the passengers disembark, but he kept the crew on as hostages. He demanded that they take off again this time in the direction of Mexico City and forty five minutes into the flight. The man strapped the cash to himself and jumped off the plane. Search parties looked for the man in the cash for days, but they couldn't find either. He had just disappeared. It was all over the news. Although the hijacker pseudonym, Dan Cooper was misreported as b Cooper, he still never been found. It's been forty, seven years. Twenty eight year old. Martin McNally was driving with a friend in Detroit. When he heard about db Cooper on the radio, a deputy clerk time, I laughed very loud and I told my friend that that's not a bad way to make some money Martin thought, how hard could it be? If db Cooper could do it, he could to. I had no experience bailing planes never put on a parachute and I never owned a gun. Martin was unemployed. He'd worked a series of jobs after being discharged from the navy years earlier. He tried a few small-time scams. Once he got busted putting fake quarters into a laundromat change machine. Nothing had really worked out. So he threw himself into trying to figure out at a hijack an airplane. I, he went to the local library spent about five hours pulling out. Books on parachuting and World War Two adventures in flying and so forth. And it took about four hours to come across the calculation that I wanted, and it was an algebraic calculation to determine terminal velocity in once I had that, I wrote down the formula and left and went home Martin all of the calculations himself, figuring out how high above the ground the planes should be and how fast it should be going for him to safely jump out and open a parachute. He was most concerned with how long he would have after the jump before he needed to open the parachute. He figured he had about fifteen to twenty seconds. The next step was to find the right airport for five months, Martin scouted airports across the midwest. He visited Indianapolis, Chicago, Saint Louis and Kansas City. He finally chose Saint Louis Lambert Airport. He thought it had the worst security. He visited two more times to prepare. He bought a ticket with forged navy discharge papers under the name, Robert Wilson and on the afternoon of June twenty third nineteen seventy-two. He walked into the airport when up to the counter gave the agent his ticket and boarded the plane. We didn't go through any middle detectors at this time. If there had been metal detectors, I wouldn't have been on that plane period. So I was able to get on the plane with a gun. Yeah, with with my, I had a sort of rifle, it looked like a World War, Two Greece gone. I had a pistol and I had a smoke grenade and I was dressed like a businessman suit and tie sport coat sunglasses. Didn't have my Wayland at that time. Sat down and we, we took off Martin McNally was planning to jump out of a plane, ten thousand feet in the air going five hundred miles an hour and had almost no idea what he was doing. I'm Phoebe judge. This is criminal..
