But i you know but i'm not i don't mind that people like you say that it was incredibly forced but i think what you're not realizing is that a lot of the movie. Had these little things that were happening that were so similar to the original movie. That if you didn't just watch the original movie you wouldn't realize it and i thought that was super cute because i've seen one hundred times in the past two weeks.

Maybe the big ones like the hair and that's all nations and the big things that you expect in the movie might've felt forced to you guys but to me. I thought they did a wonderful job of leaving these little things in the movie that were like. Wow that was a really cute to execute connections in the In the room was one of those connections. I thought one of the q- connections was you know when the puppies escape from horace and jasper one hundred and one of them. They jumped through this whole in the in the in the Wall and the way that she gets to the house when she's running after jasper and horace when their kids is there's a little hole in the wall and she goes through it.

That was really cute. I really did and then just the fashion and all the way she does like symbolism for like fuck you to the baroness visually like fuck you. You know where.

Thanks you still you. These nice way of saying the fugger. Can i ask you guys. one thing. Though that i thought was weird. So if the original was nineteen sixty right and carlos like a grown woman by then this movie should have been placed in like the forties but they have music from seven. So that's one thing that i was like wait. Shouldn't they be playing music and the fashion should be back in the alternate universe. Correla gas is going to say. I was actually going to bring that. Point was in nineteen sixty. And that's why and not again. That's why i love it so much. Tell you this big appoint for. Maybe she has a point. I haven't seen it now.

And how does it create a healthy energy field for people kind of go over. How does it do it true. I get starting declaring. Yes who philosophy is a consciousness technology and we believe that technologies like this are starting to to show up on the planet to really assist us to evolve so are really are basis is creating or activating a space that is really optimal for evolution. And we can talk later about our buddhist friend in his experience of meditations in the the field the f. lefay environment so the way it works is in effect it's very similar to human consciousness and activating field. For instance in ray or the usa mantras to create a meditative space Activating if that activates field and It similar to say the field. That might be entertained. Buddhist temple or stupa Where a place where. There's been prayer and meditative in pursuit of the evolution of consciousness. You know maybe. For centuries so that there is a machine or device that it's a central system the after the fee system there's no device that goes to to the customer's house. It's all done remotely. So we're with the epilepsy. System activates Very high consciousness field a quantum space quantum resonance and what we discovered through the inventors that the clayton came to know. Is that with the unique identifier like an address or coordinates or cellphone as you as you mentioned in object that you photograph of that you can create a quantum association between the f. liffey system field and the the remote took place were object. You know seeing and that is an instant activation of field much in the way the human system activates feel like if you think of someone and you send them prayers. You send them loving thoughts. You're activating field. They might think of you. You know about free. Call them so that we we experience that all the time and that's really how it works but let me ask. Let me ask you something. So i understand the concept of Sending a signal from your machine that is of a certain frequency or a certain energy field level and setting it to a longitude and latitude in terms of location. But how is it that. If i give you a picture of a like a like a wedding ring for instance does that translate. We'll do the picture to pick that up based upon the principle of unique identifier. So if you take a clear enough of the wedding ring so we typically ask we ask people to take a picture of the object if it's going to be an object and that's what you referred to the three hundred foot bubble earlier vaughan properties the the service goes to the edge of the property line but on a on a mobile object at three hundred feet..

We're ten miles out of out of town and there's no highways or roads except one out front you know there's nothing back on our from me that that nothing vehicle could create this three even hundred spotlight. There's no way so anyway We did not You know who you're gonna call basically right so on the next morning. We called a friend and told them about it and they do about move on the mutual ufo network. Now when i didn't all we never heard of move on before but our friend offers to contact move on to see if they might be interested in checking it out you know. And that's what they do and we're like sure. Yeah you know. Maybe they have some answers as well. Another thing. that was interesting is that we walked up to that hilltop where we saw the light and we found some physical evidence left behind.
"three hundred feet" Discussed on Harvard Classics
"It is equally improbable that the elevator forces should have uplifted throughout the above vast areas innumerable great rocky banks within twenty to thirty fathoms or one hundred twenty two one hundred eighty feet of the surface of the sea and not one single point above that level for wherein the whole surface of the globe. Can we find a single chain of mountains. Even a few hundred miles in length with their many summits rising within a few feet of a given level and not one pinnacle above it. If then the foundations whence the atoll building coral springs were not formed of sediment and if they were not lifted up to the required level they must of necessity have subsided into it and this at once solves the difficulty. Encircling barrier reefs are of all sizes from three miles to no less than forty four miles in diameter and that which fronts one side and encircles. Both ends of new caledonia is four hundred miles long. Each reef includes one two or several rocky islands of various heights and in one instance even as many as twelve separate islands the reef runs at a greater or less distance from the included land in the society archipelago generally from one to three or four miles. But at haga you. The reef is twenty miles on the southern side and fourteen miles on the opposite or northern side from the included islands. The depth within the lagoon channel also varies much from ten. To thirty fathoms may be taken as an average but at venacuro there are spaces. No less than fifty six fathoms or three hundred sixty three feet deep internally. The reef either slopes gently into the lagoon channel or ends in a perpendicular walls. Sometimes between two and three hundred feet underwater in height externally the reef rises like an atoll with extreme abruptness out of the profound depths of the ocean what can be more singular than these structures. We see an island which may be compared to a castle situated on the summit of a lofty submarine mountain protected by the great wall of coral rock always steep externally in sometimes internally with a broad level summit here in their breached by a narrow gateway through which the largest ships can enter the wide and deep encircling moat as far as the actual reef of coral is concerned. There is not the smallest difference in general size outlined grouping and even in quite trifling details of structure between a barrier in an atoll the geographer bow has well remarked that an encircled island is an atoll with highland rising out of its lagoon removed. The land from within and a perfect atoll is left. But what has caused these reefs to spring up at such great distances from the shores of the included islands. It cannot be that the corals will not grow close to the land for the shores within the lagoon channel when not surrounded by alluvial soil are often fringed by living reefs and we shall presently see that there is a whole class which i have called fringing reefs from their close attachment to the shores both continents in of islands again on what have the reef building corals which cannot live at great depths base there encircling structures this is a great apparent difficulty analogous to that in the case of atolls which has generally been overlooked it will be perceived more clearly by inspecting the above sections which are real ones taken in north and south lines through the islands with their barrier reefs..

What's the Largest Lake in the World?
"Siberia's Lake Cal is not your average. Lake. At forty, nine miles wide by three hundred and ninety, five miles long that seventy, nine by six, hundred and thirty, five kilometers. It's the world's largest freshwater lake and with history that dates back twenty, five, million years it's also Earth's oldest. But size and age aren't the only things that make this. Lake. Special. Lake by cow is also home to more than three thousand, seven, hundred different species, many of which are only found in the Baikal region. That's why by cows often considered the Galapagos of Russia. No in case it's bio-diversity doesn't dazzle you here's another but Julia fact. Lake by cow has its own version of the Loch ness monster. Its name translates to water dragon master and it's described as a giant sturgeon with a prominent stout, an armored plating along the back. The monsters history goes back centuries with ancient carvings depicting this terrifying creature. Interest peaked we thought. So here's a starter guide to this ancient beautiful and mysterious late, which is by the way a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Baikal is located in southern Russia near the border of Mongolia, its depth of five thousand, three, hundred feet about one thousand, six, hundred meters makes it the world's deepest lake about five hundred feet or two hundred meters it's also famous for its clarity of water and ice. When the lake is frozen, you can see dozens of meters or hundreds of feet down. And as we said at the top, it's also the world's largest lake that size twelve, thousand, two, hundred, square miles, or thirty one, thousand, six, hundred square kilometers makes it comparable in volume to the entire Amazon Basin? A first scale? It reportedly takes about three hundred and thirty years for single water molecule to flow from inlet to inlet. So. How did like by cow get so massive About twenty, five, million ago lake by CAL formed through fractures and shifting within Earth's crust. It wasn't Lake Baikal as we know it. Now, though experts believe it was a series of lakes similar to the Great Lakes in the United States while scientists aren't positive how lake by CAL went for many lakes to the behemoth. It is today they do have theories. It could have been sinking earth erosion earthquakes or increased water from melting glaciers although it's likely a mix of these factors and more. That unifying change took place in the pleasing epoch about five point three to two point five million years ago. But this lake isn't finished growing. It's expanding at a rate of about point seven inches to centimeters every year at the same speed at which Africa in South America are drifting apart. At this speed, some scientists believe lake by Baikal is actually an ocean in the making. The lake boasts twenty-seven islands, the largest of which spans two, hundred, eighty square miles or seven, hundred, twenty, five square kilometers and has its own lake mountains and the population of fifteen hundred residents. The locals connected to power van underwater cable in two, thousand and five, and we're connected to the Internet shortly after. Some Call Lake by Cao, the Galapagos of Russia not only because it has an impressive array of those nearly four thousand species but also because eighty percent of those animals are found nowhere else. One reason for this unique biodiversity is the lakes. Array of hydrothermal vents which are commonly found in oceans but lake by cow is the only freshwater lake known to have them. Cold water from the lake enters cracks in the Earth's crust through these hydrothermal vents. When the water reaches magma, it heats up, then returns resurfacing with minerals and heat. These rich minerals are probably the reason some of the lakes most unusual species were able to develop including several unique fish and the nerpa seal species, which is the only exclusively freshwater seal species in the world and its evolution is mysterious and some scientists believe it arrived by a prehistoric river from the Arctic But beyond seals fish other common animals found in the forests and mountains surrounding Lake Baikal include. Elk. Reindeer links wild-boar, and of course, the lakes frequently reported water dragon master. And this ancient lake has another air of mystery about it. UFO sightings. Many locals have reported strange lights and alien spacecraft throughout the years and several Soviet era documents mention ufo instance in sightings around Earth's largest lake. However for all of its natural wonder, amazing wildlife end stranger sides for lake cows one hundred, thousand permanent residents it's simply home. Made, occupations are forestry agriculture, fisheries, hunting, and tourism though that's currently on hold due to covid nineteen. Here's hoping they opened back up soon.
Will the Fires That Made Centralia a Ghost Town Ever Go Out?
"The smallest municipality in Pennsylvania is Centralia a former mining community located about two hours north west of Philadelphia. Records tell US had one thousand, four, hundred and thirty five residents in the year nineteen sixty. Today fewer than ten people still live there. The US Postal. Service revoked and trailer Zip Code in two thousand two and the local portion of state route sixty one was permanently closed off nine years before that. We can't blame. The areas decline on the usual socioeconomic suspects. Its problems run deeper literally since at least nineteen sixty to a coal seam fire has been smoldering right below the town. Yes, in. The Earth has been smoking. An ash has been raining down for over fifty years. No one knows exactly how the coal fire got started, but whatever set the thing off this long lived. Blaze isn't some kind of one off luke. Naturally occurring coal deposits are called seems in the mining industry, and wherever such veins occur whole seem fires like the one under Centralia may break out and commonly do. China's three thousand mile or five thousand kilometer coal mining belt is notorious for its seemed fires a so as a town in India where fires have claimed about forty one million tons of coal since nineteen eighteen. We spoke by email with a new TMA per cash, a geologist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She said the issue is more prevalent in areas. Where coal was extracted in the past with limited efforts to ensure that the whole left, the extraction was filled up. She explained that mines that don't provide structural support to keep ground from collapsing. Likewise risk seem fire outbreaks. Granted humans aren't always responsible. Though down in new, south Wales Australia, there's a famous coal seam that's been burning for six thousand years straight scientists think it was first ignited by an ancient brushfire or lightning strike. A coal doesn't need much encouragement to catch fire under the right circumstances, the material can actually light itself ablaze through spontaneous combustion. We also spoke by with research geologist Alain Coker. He explained the decomposition of Pyrite President in coal produces heat, and in some cases, the self heating can start the coal on fire. This is a problem even where coal is transported long distances and ships. By most accounts, Centralia great fire began at a dump near the local odd fellows cemetery on May, twenty seventh of nineteen, sixty two. This landfill was intentionally set ablaze was six volunteer firefighters, standing by. It was all part of a yearly cleanup effort by the local government. Controlled Burns were popular garbage disposal technique back then, but things didn't always go according to plan. Perhaps this fire ran deeper into the trash than anybody realized if so, it could have spread through the refuse and entered the nearest coal mine pit with no one being the wiser. Than again, be the town. Government had nothing to do with it. Some have argued that different garbage fire at the same site. A lit by an unidentified truck driver is what really sealed Centralia fate. Another less popular theory claims the coal seam fire started all the way back in the Great Depression and went unextinguished for decades before the nineteen sixties gave it a new lease on life. Regardless. The inferno made itself right at home, sweeping through mine tunnels and coal seams, flames descended as far as three hundred feet, ninety meters below the ground, sometimes nearing temperatures of one, thousand, three hundred fifty degrees, Fahrenheit or seven hundred thirty Celsius. According to an investigation in two thousand twelve has a tway's underlying. Some four hundred acres or sixty hectares of land, had been touched by the blaze at sometime or other. Coker said uncontrolled coalfires have all the potential environmental impacts of burning coal for power generation with none of the benefits in addition to emitting carbon dioxide, trace metals, such as mercury and harmful. Fine particles are emitted. Per, cash noted that methane and sulfur dioxide are also common and so distinctive that just talking about these fires virtually floods her with memories of the sent. To this day, smoke rises from the earth through fishers around Centralia. Meanwhile, the terrain has become perilously unstable over time. Her cash said these fires are dangerous as land can suddenly collapsed or sink as the fire just eats up the ground underneath such collapses can damaged houses roads. Train tracks etc.. That's why Pennsylvania closed off four thousand feet, or about one thousand two hundred meters of route sixty one back in nineteen, ninety-three subterranean pillars held up the pavement, were destroyed or weakened by the flames, making the roadway totally unsuitable for motorists. So Wilson Trail is fire ever burn out? Extinguishing so-far haven't paid off. Between nineteen sixty to nineteen eighty-two assorted government agencies spent seven million dollars fighting. This entrails a qualifier openings sealed trenches were dug, and the minds were stuffed with non-combustible. And crushed rocks, but nothing worked. Nearly all of Centralia former residents are long gone. Many took advantage of a forty two million dollar tax payer funded relocation initiative, which saw five hundred buildings destroyed. The final holdouts have been granted permission to spend the rest of their lives in the town as per eight thousand thirteen settlement with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. According to the state's Department of Environmental, protection the fire might keep on raging for over a hundred years yet to come. But as bad as they can get coal seam, buyers aren't invincible. Kosh said good policies on mining safety and reclamation go a long way as preventative measure, if a fire does start taking quick action to contain it by isolating the fire, dousing the fire, cooling the area and continued monitoring to ensure that the fire does not start again are important measures. Centralia? Hellish effect made it part of the inspiration for the two thousand six horror film silent. The departure from the video game series that it was adapted from. And over the past thirty odd years town Centralia not silent hill has become an unlikely tourist destination. One former attraction was the abandoned stretch of route sixty one dubbed the graffiti highway at attracted masses of street artists who added a rainbow of cartoons and signatures to the pavement. However in two thousand twenty, the corporation that owns the undrivable road, had covered up with piles of dirt. Dissuade visitors from swinging by during the covid nineteen pandemic.
Notre Dame Fire; Pilgrim Trails
"Let's start today's show remembering the impact of the fire. That damaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris one year ago with thirteen million visitors a year. The medieval masterpiece had attracting more visitors than Saint Peter's Basilica Elaine Sciolino correspondent in Paris since two thousand and two and she describes how the river that surrounds Notre Dom came to the rescue in her book. The Sam the river that made Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Where were you and I know how much you love Paris? What was it like when you heard about the fire at the Notre Dame on April fifteen twenty nineteen? I live in Paris Rick and I happened to have been in New York at the time and I was in an office building and suddenly looked at a TV screen and there was CNN with the Notre. Dom Inflames I mean my city by cathedral and I was so my first questions were did anyone die and was it terrorism and once it was just established that it was a terrible accident and no one died. I was relieved because I was confident. Even at that very moment that it would be rebuilt. Maybe different but it would survive. It had to yeah now you were probably celebrating the fact that you've got this wonderful book. The send the river that made Paris just coming out in actuality in a Lotta ways. It was the send that enabled the firefighters to save the Cathedral. Well I got a phone call from my husband who was watching all of this on French TV in Paris and he said Lane. You're not gonNA believe this but I'm watching television and there is a boat that seems to be pumping water up to the firefighters on the land into the Cathedral. And I knew at that moment I had to write another chapter about the Senate and its role in helping to put out the fire at Notre Dumb. Thank God they had access to all that water when you think of the structure of a Gothic Cathedral. A lot of people don't realize it but there's huge oak beams there's a whole structure between the ceiling and the roof and it's the network of Oak Beams. The roof would be a lead covered roof. Eight hundred years old. I've seen in museums gargoyles with molten lead spewing out their mouth you know cooling and freezing their when you've had a fire like this. I mean it's just a nightmare when I've got the cathedral bursts into flames. I agree one hundred percent with you. It was an absolute nightmare and it affected people in very strange ways being people who had no real religious connection with Notre Dom we're weeping in the streets and people around the world were mourning the fact that this edifice that too many represents the heart and soul of Paris was on the verge of destruction. No I understand that the nineteenth century spire which in your chapter you you say has five hundred tons of Oak. Two hundred and fifty tons of lead fell three hundred feet crashing to the ground. It's amazing that the entire church didn't collapse A lot of people don't realize that stone gets compromised in heat and giant stone. Buildings can fall down because of a fire with the firefighters who belonged to the French military. They're not part of the city of Paris Force went into action as if it was a military operation and the commander of the firefighters sent some of his team into the burning north tower risking their lives to try to cool down that tower. Which we still don't know one year later. Is it completely intact or does it need to be supported in some way? Now that must have been quite a dramatic decision because you can stand back and make sure nobody is endangers way and then the tower would have collapsed or you can send your firefighters in risking a situation like on nine eleven when the trade towers collapsed and all the firefighters inside would perish again. Thank goodness five. Hundred firefighters participated. They took the bold move they rushed in. They called the church and they say the north tower will general galet. Who is the commander of the firefighters spent time in Afghanistan and he had studied also the nine eleven tragedy in the United States? But he had to go to the president of France to get permission to send his firefighters in. Anybody told the president is if we don't do this. We're half an hour away from Notre Dom collapsing. That is amazing. You know we can more in the church. We can love the church but as hard get into the heart in the mind of Parisians. What does it mean to Paris? I mean it just seems like of course. You've got the zero point in front right. Everything is majored in France from the Notre Dame. Its place where they're kings have been coronated through the centuries in so many ways it's the cultural heart of the city even back before the advent of Christianity there was a temple. Can You Peter Right there? Can you talk a little bit about the Notre Dame as that heart and soul of the Great City of Paris? Notre Dame is on the field unless he tae which was where Paris was created. It's the very origin of Paris. Need sits there as not only a beautiful historical monument to museum but it sits there as the absolute essence of Paris So for French Catholics. It's a place of worship but for the rest of the French nation. It's really the origin of their capital city.
Parking Lot Landing With Jeff King
"This was in two thousand are at that point in time. I would my Turkey six at that point. I had about four hundred dollars on that particular aircraft and I used it for business and personal travel so at that point it was in September. I was during the visit. My sister and we flew from Holland to troy. Michigan and troy is a kind of an urban airport little bit north of Detroit Michigan and it was an uneventful flight. We you know the Cheer King. Six has four fuel tanks. We burn down the first two fuel tanks and landed in the left hip tank. No issues there. We rode my bike to my sisters and then came back and decided to go back home. We were GONNA stop at Hillsdale to get fuel. That's another airport that I was based out of at that point in time. And when you say we jeff who was in the airplane with you oh. I'm sorry I'm a HAM radio operator. We use that word we sometimes so no. I okay got it. You were so low and flying over to see your sister who I know you shared with us was sick. And you're flying over to visit her and then your plan was to visit her for a bit and then turn around and depart for home. That same evening is that right. That's correct come home that evening. So we wrote our bike back to the airport and Dinner run up and everything seemed fine. I had been doing short field takeoffs to says as a habit even though this was not really a short field and that was about a thousand pounds under gross so we didn't take off the twenty degrees flaps What up pretty fast. We pitched over from V. Ecstasy Y and immediately after that with the answer starts to stumble and then we lost power. It was of course it was nighttime. At that point we were on the eastbound runway runway nine and two seven at that particular report and started a turn it back to the field and then all of a sudden Stalin came on. And we're at roughly three hundred feet at that point. In time at that point you would your engine fails or I head engine stumble with Cherokee six four take aircraft and if you're going to get any kind of range out of it you would run out of fuel at altitude and the engine would star. Bill. Would I talk about that? You're eight ten thousand feet up. Always have something picked out ahead of time so your your heart would always flutter. I Dunno if anyone's ever not changed a tank purpose or not in for your heart flutters. Well this time. It wasn't on purpose this time. I wasn't ten thousand feet. This time. I was up three hundred feet. So you got that moment where you. Oh my gosh. A couple seconds elapses. It seems like a couple of minutes. So short field takeoffs techniques who knows is relatively high you're climbing out at Vx SPEED. You're just beginning to push over to capture V. Y. and your engine stumbles and then very shortly thereafter. You see the stall light right so at the airport when Stalin came on thankfully might training. At least I feel like my training kicked in at that point. My instructor be if our instructor. Jason Dyson from years past always messed around with me. I guess this lack of a better where we would fail the engine on me and he'd always tell me if you lose your engine on takeoff. The Insurance Company owns the airplane. What he meant by that was that you worry about yourself. You don't worry about your airplane. You worry about yourself so when that stall I came on I just pushed the forward. I didn't see what was outside. I didn't I didn't even look outside of this. Pushing forward was at a fairly aggressive. Push Jeff relatively hard or Takasu. Assume that that push. Yeah you have to understand. This whole series of events probably was fifteen to twenty seconds for the time I rotated to the time the engine baby ten fifteen seconds so there. There was a lot going on in a very short period of time so I would say the push was relatively hardware pushed it forward. Yeah where I was pitching over the top. I dropped flaps out as well. I took a twenty degrees. I dropped in ten when I went to wide and then I immediately pulled some flaps in his well once I was pitched down because I knew there was there was not a lot of space in front of me and I was correct. There wasn't so I'm I'm pitch down. I'm seeing portion of the Walmart parking lot in front of me and then a feel beyond their. I just pushed it down. I think one of the witnesses said he went into a dive and I did because I did not have a lot a lot of space to land the point. Jeff how is the visibility here? So you said you're up about three hundred feet when it stumbles. You're pushing over so now you can see over the knows. I mean you only had a couple seconds to make a decision here on where to go was visibility. An issue for you at all. Visibility was on an issue. The only thing with this particular field was I. My in-laws lived in the area. My sister lived in the area side using air for quite a bit so I knew there wasn't a lot a lot of choices to go if she had a problem. Yeah that looking at where you were in. That era means basically the Detroit Metro area. It's pretty crowded around that airport for sure. It's a industrial a mixed industrial commercial retail area. Yeah any Cherokee. Six has a relatively long nose. So when you're pissed up like that in a short field takeoff you pitch over visibility over the nose for at least a little bit can be an issue but you pitch over to start capturing glider really. You weren't interested in capturing a glide you're religious interested in preventing the stall at that point at that point it was just it was just muscle memory. I guess for lack of a better word. Where then you're training kicks in and you're doing things you're supposed to be doing and not thinking about it. So I I just I saw that stall icon and I thought about departure stalls. I mean again. It was such a limited period of time. I remember on the way down. The properties rotating slowly probably from the wind are not sure that the NTSB thought possibly the engine starting to catch again. And there's always coming down but at that point I stopped doing any of the checks doing and I just committed to the landing in trying to retain control the aircraft and was the Walmart parking lot straight ahead. Did you have to make a slight turn to get there? Where was it in relation to the attitude of your airplane while it was laughed and I started to do a turn when the ancient stumbled to try to come back to the field so call them turn right when that style came on. I I gave up. I know I've got to save myself fly. The airplane fly the airplane. Fly that Europe Lane. What I saw my windshield again was pretty surreal. I saw a white van. There was a very narrow strip of the parking lot that was free of cars. I saw white van ahead of me. Turning the left it turned out it was a white car but from that altitude looked like a white van and I just basically all my gosh. I hope he turns. I hope he turns. Because that's the only option. I have a whole bunch of parked cars and to the right of me. It was dark. I really couldn't see to the right of me. I had to go where I could see. Thankfully he turned. It probably wouldn't have been an issue for him anyway. She was so far away. But still if you saw the photographs that I sent there was like an alley behind a row of buildings and I was kind of aiming for the alley. That alley was behind a strip mall behind. The store is a Walmart. I was passing over. Then there was a parking lot. Anyth- me then a strip mall that had a alley behind it. I was trying to turn to edge between there and the feel Birla's again that turn was roughly from the time your engine sputtered. You start turning you. Were turning back with a sputtering engine then Pretty Soon. You realize the engines had quit. You're about to stall you push over and so that was About a ninety degree. Turn away from runway heading to head towards this parking lot. Is that about right arm? Say about sixty to seventy degrees but yeah right okay so laughing more or less north okay and you really have limited options. You pushed down to prevent the stall you seeing the only real open spaces parking lot. So you're pushing to keep flying airspeed into get into this parking lot. Did you have any ability as you came down for lateral control to miss? You know lighting or cars or anything like that or you pretty much really minimally guiding the airplane at this point I had enough control to put a heart slip in also to try to get down Got It okay. Yeah you can see the parking lot for quite well but as far as being able to see what's around you you really couldn't like I hook theon right main landing gear on a shopping cart corral when I was flaring and I didn't even see that yeah. I saw that in the video. You sent by the way for our listeners. We'll have the pictures that Jefferson and the short video clip from the parking lot that shows a portion of a crash up on our website. So That is interesting so you turn it. You see the parking lot but you're too high so now you're into a pretty good slip to try to lose that altitude to get down to the parking lot and then you come in and take it from there so I'm pushing down hard starting to flare and I didn't see the shopping cart crowd but it hooked my right main as I said. Toilet the right main often it went shopping. Carts went flying in the air. I guess the at this point it starts to become I mean the whole thing was surreal but then it becomes extremely surreal at this point. I guess the first impression layer craft landed pretty hard Cherki sixes glide like a brick and of course I lost my right man. I didn't know it but I lost my right main. Sorry hit down pretty hard. I was a little bit stunned for a moment. When I hit the ground then became really surreal. Like I said I imagine yourself on the expressway. Drive your card about maybe seventy miles an hour and you go through a bunch of shopping carts. I mean they're flying up all around the airplane That was pretty bizarre. Then I'm sliding across the parking lot in this aircraft you know. I don't have any control. I mean there's no steering control all I mean I don't my right man I I. I was hoping to go between the Strip mall and the right side of the parking lot but the plane started to go to the right because there was no right it was dragging thankfully to the right was there was nothing to the right other than the embankment. Another parking lot about a five foot drop roughly so I'm sliding along okay. I think I'm going to live at this point. I'm shook it up but you know all my body parts are attached the cabins and tech which I got to say about Piper Cabin was was stayed intact through the whole accident so all of a sudden I'd see this bright white lights on my right side I go by. What is this all about? You know that lasted for about a second. And I'll get back to the moment. And then I shout over the parking lot over the embankment which is about a five foot drop that was on their big bump and then finally came to stop at the edge of the second part right the field or back to that white light as they say. I'm not really a religious person but apparently that was the tip tank getting sheared off on the The curb of the of the first part is that went over the embankment the Cherokee six has a fiberglass tank on it so it totally open it I at seventeen gallons in the right tank and totally open the tank up before an accident. And there's a number of things you're supposed to. Todd opened the door up. Turn the electrical off well. I didn't turn electoral off. I had incandescent lightbulb on the right tip. But as soon as the tip take opened up and of course Saddam flight broken immediately caused a fireball. Well thankfully the fireball and the gasoline got left behind and I kept going so I I come to a stop I look out my right window and the right. There's a small fire in the right wing. I didn't know I'd lost all my fuel. It was what was left so I- scramble out of the airplane I literally You can see one of the pictures where the right. Meanwhile sitting next to the right wing I literally had to dodge the right. The right wheels bouncing across the parking lot heady get the airplane. I had to either dodge it when I got on the airplane. As you're playing was a small fire the right wing. I didn't know the fuel situation there was you know. And of course I saw a huge fire behind me. I just got away from the airplane at that point so you survived the crash. You step out dodge. The right landing gear still bouncing down the pavement towards you and then what was your next action from there you're standing there looking at this Wreck of an airplane and thankful that you survived it. Thankful that the airplane protected you and then would you do jeff. Well at that point I ran up the embankment back onto the main Walmart. Parking Lot and there was a few people there. I I guess one of them did you. They asked me if the pilots okay and I said well I was the pilot. I'm okay everything's trying to register at that point and I asked to call nine one one. They already had called nine one one and we just waited for the police to get there and so forth. What an interesting deal. That happens so quickly. From your estimation from the time you release breaks till I don't know maybe thirty seconds forty five seconds later you're standing up on that embankment looking at your
Invulnerable to Danger - Part 2
"Talking about affecting the safety mindset of pilots that appear to feel invulnerable and we were using the Kobe. Bryant crashed the pilot from that crash is a kind of example now. We don't have the final report on that accident yet. But we do have a lot of data and I've had a lot of great conversations and I think I'm finally getting my head around some strategies that we can use to avoid making the same mistakes I mean first of all. Let's just review. There's been a lot of data coming back about the Kobe. Bryant crashed but we're using that pilot as an example because at the end of the day he was flying at about one hundred and sixty knots three hundred feet off the ground in very very marginal conditions and died doing something that kills more pilots than other weather events combined rights lightning icing thunderstorms microbursts wind. Share I mean you name it right all of that in one bucket via far into IMC kills more pilots right. So how did this eight thousand two hundred pilot? Eight thousand two hundred hour pilot not know that right. He must have known that. There's there's no way he didn't know that yet he's still going at that. Speed three hundred feet off the ground in conditions that were extremely marginal and at some point. He realized I can't do this anymore. I'm not I don't have visibility. I'm getting too close to the ground. And he executed an abrupt pull up into the clouds. We don't know why it was so abrupt. We don't know if he was thinking. I'm just GONNA pop up through this layer or or what but you can go to the pilot's. Handbook of Air Nautical Knowledge. Look up the section on spatial disorientation. This is textbook. There's something called elevator allusion when you introduce that upward force. Your tendency is to pitch down and just before the top of the clouds just before the helicopter broke out. That's exactly what happened. It started diving left. Turn and hit a mountain going. Four thousand feet permanent down right so the pilot unless he became incapacitated or had instrument failures. Let's just you know. Let's go with the obvious. Right comes razor. The most obvious answer tends to be the correct one he. He was spatially disoriented which would make a ton of sense because he's doing something that kills more pilots than all other weather events combined and he exposed himself to this elevator illusion. The real question is how did he feel as though this was not a problem for him how did he. Why was he going that fast? And some people say well hey look. There were pressures to fly Kobe Bryant. And Yeah Okay. But it doesn't mean you have to be on one hundred sixty three hundred feet off the ground. I think the behavior of if you watch the flight path and think about the mindset of this pilot. This is somebody who wasn't feeling vulnerable. Maybe right up until the very end. So how do we affect that? A lot of you know my work and I I in my book setting the standard a large part of. What's really become my thesis and Flight? Training is that we need to emulate the commercial operators standardize our behavior around accidents. That have occurred so that. We're modifying behaviors based on accidents. That have occurred whenever possible. We make those procedures redundant and then we force our own compliance But still even even knowing that there's still the right amount of pressure under the rate circumstances at the right time or the right combination of events that will get even the most experienced pilots. You know that to say well just this once. I'm going to. Maybe they even get away with it and it becomes normal right and they normalized this deviant behavior that they didn't even know was deviant because they keep getting away with it. I got some really interesting feedback about how in some other industries like law enforcement for example or construction others unknown concept that with a certain amount of hours or a certain amount of experience you become complacent that experience equals that and then flying we kind of do the opposite. We think more hours is more experienced. The is the safer pilot. And maybe that's true in the in the professional world where you're going back in for recurrent training every six months But maybe not so much in generally vacation one of the people I talked to a gentleman named David Dow. Who's a safety expert for confined spaces particularly in construction? I believe in any case. Consider what he had to say about safety. Classes that were required in the workplace couple hundred fatalities each year and trenches and excavations and confined spaces and was my specialty so to speak a lot of safety classes I met a lot of times with skepticism from participants and they basically had the attitude. If I've been doing this work for years and I've never had a problem So safety really isn't a concern. Just have not had a problem in the past. So why am I here for the safety class? I sometimes joke and think of it like you know. There's an expression that if a company is not growing it's dying. I always say if a pilot's not trying to get better. They're getting worse. And the concept of normalization of deviance is. Maybe you're getting away with things. Maybe the Kobe Brian Pilot had done this fifteen twenty times when the conditions were slightly better and it worked. You know you can kind of falsely. Prove to yourself that what you're doing is safe. So that's when I started thinking about the scared straight program and you know that's the one where they take the problem youth and they put him in jail for the night and they get scared straight in quotes and that led to a very interesting conversation with Greg Patch. All My name is Greg Paddle. I'm the Chief Flight Instructor Gateway Technical College and Kenosha Wisconsin. I think the biggest issue is getting pilots to realize their their own weaknesses or overconfidence. And the the only way to really do that is to put them in a position where they become overconfident or overlook some of their weaknesses and actually make a mistake. And it's trying to find a safe way to do that and there in lies one of the issues. You know the reason. We don't do spins in training anymore because two thirds the accidents. The fatal accidents were happening in training. So how can you safely do this? How can you safely make pilots aware of their vulnerability? Greg uses simulators and actual NTSB accident reports to recreate events that have proven fatal in the real world One of the scenarios we use as a a maintenance flight for an aircraft where it had some work done. Everything's supposed to be good and you know you're flying this airplane back to your home base. what we usually do is We we give the students the scenario. We don't tell them you know what the accident is. What happened we say? Plan the flight you know you might have. Passengers might not how much fuel you bring in. So the first thing they do is they ready. One page Risk Assessment papers and Kinda lay out what they see as possible risk for the flight and what their negation strategies or reduction strategies are for those perceived risks and they may or may not hit the nail on the head with the flight. Sometimes it's something that's completely outside the realm of something they could check on a simulator flight like a maintenance issue Then they will Submit a flight plan and plan for him so we know what their route is. We know what fuel they WANNA take and they may or may not get that out just like an eye for flight plan you might get throughout you file or not. The scenario happens in the simulator. The instructor kind of drive that Whether it'd be an engine failure or Seafood type of scenario where there's controlled flight into terrain and the actual excellent report And depending on how. The students either plan the flight or respond to that. That stressor in this scenario is Is the learning experience so sometimes the flight was off without a hitch minutes because they saw that risk upfront and they were able to apply you know appropriate negation strategies and move through that. And say I'll come and they they get to the end of the scenario and they're like well you know nothing really happened. Well Great. That means you. You had good skills going into that flight. For that scenario that doesn't happen with every scenario One of the scenarios I use is a A flight within Inner Fire and I actually bought a small smoke generator from party city and use that in the simulator to to add that realism. And it's about an hour and a half into the flight so I mean you're in the simulator in an enclosed simulator for an hour and a half after a while. It feels like you're fine an airplane and all of a sudden starts pouring. I had students panic a little bit in the simulator. You know and it. Kinda sounds funny but you know after you're in there for a while you really think that's happening so as realistic as you can. So that it applies to something they'd see in real life to trying to teach them to be more diligent about looking at the day to day flying and and what south or that could be a danger. There is so much good stuff in there and Greg is definitely a man after my own heart. You know I am the guy in the simulator with all the lights off and forcing my student to hold a Red Light. You know and Turning the volume the hominy engine up as loud as I can. And putting on headsets and making fake air traffic control calls mean anything we can do to make it more like the real world and Greg's right after a while that the illusion really does start to get some depth and you start to feel like you're in an airplane even though it's not moving and there's no you know perception emotion. Another amazing thing that they are doing there is having a risk assessment For the flight that they're about to taken. I'm not sure if it was greg with. Somebody got me on instagram and said that that was something their school did as well just to build it in from day. One on any given flight even if I'm going out to the practice area with a student there's a certain amount of risk associated with it and I have certain risk mitigation strategies for me assuming. No one makes any obvious mistakes. I consider the three big risks fire failure and collision on and you know for fire and failure. Outside of structural failure. You practice you know you. Practice communication failure you practice engine failure you practice fire procedures emergency to sense all sorts of stuff like that and for collision. I feel a lot better now. In today's world that were inside of what used to be the mode c ring but now requires a DSP out transponders. So I definitely take advantage of that. I've got the century Receiver always up. I've got four flat on my phone buzzing traffic in my pocket. I've got four fight on my IPAD showing traffic and now we really do have good visibility. So you have a risk mitigation strategy. Even if it's just I'm GONNA look out the window and I think the process of walking through it is what's important and what we want to pass

Probe: Bryant helicopter was 100 feet from clear skies
"The pilot of the helicopter that crashed on January twenty sixth killing Kobe Bryant is thirteen year old daughter Chiana and seven others appears to have experienced spatial disorientation the national transportation safety board said Friday veteran pilot error as a boy in told air traffic control he was climbing to four thousand feet to get out of thick clouds but the NTSB says the helicopter ascended to only twenty three hundred feet before entering a high speed descent and left turn the helicopter slammed into a hillside at more than one hundred eighty miles per hour camera footage reviewed later showed the helicopter was just one hundred feet from the top of the clouds when it went into the dive hi Mike Rossio
Helicopter In Kobe Bryant Crash Being Investigated
"The noise the other big story that's been developing all week was the investigation to the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant his daughter and seven other people the investigation has been focusing a lot on the fog and weather but it's also going to look into the helicopter itself and the pilot who received clearance to fly in poor weather conditions there is also been conversation about terrain awareness warning system that possibly could have prevented the rack but in this case that warning system was not present on the helicopter that Kobe was flying on the NTSB has been arguing for a decade and a half that system to prevent crashes should be mandatory helicopters that accommodate six or more passengers such as a Sikorsky S. seventy six helicopter that he was flying in but these efforts have been turned aside from the FAA the NTSB will be releasing a preliminary report on the accident soon but for more on what we know so far we spoke to Chris and Carla he's a news correspondent for I heart media in Los Angeles to tell us a little bit more about what we know about the investigation so far the NTSB right now he's drawing out all of the physical what they call perishable evidence so anything bad maybe call it did hear a dog in the open or that needs to be collected in order to piece together the puzzle a little bit later there could be looking at many different aspects of this crash though that people given the books of the company they'll get into the background of the pilot we'll get it there what the air traffic look like around southern California during that time and of course they'll get into the weather what were the conditions like they'll look at the engine of the aircraft to see if there was any malfunction or error there and then they'll also looking to be a mechanic that the aircraft industry that are everything was in good working order so all of that ball together is going to be the broader NTSB investigation what we heard today was a more ironed out time line of this flight that they took off John Wayne airport down in Santa Ana which is about seventy miles from Cameri out and it started its white worked its way up to Burbank and it without Burbank that the pilot requested to go from visual flight rules to special VFR special visual flight rules eat put in that request and the reason if you wanted a transit some air space there all along those with special rules which basically says that you can fly when the feeling of the feeling of below one thousand P. which is kind of a basic minimum and also with less than three miles of visibility so they ended up circling right around the the airport there Burbank about twelve minutes hold that request was approved and it was at that point that they started to work their way back down the one eighteen freeway and using the freeway they follow the one eighteen to the one on one end and work their way down toward camera as they are packed Burbank the band I fear space they then requested fly straight through the Cameri which was where they were going to land the the pilot requested what's called flight following and basically that just means there's a constant contact if you will between air traffic control and the pilot the air traffic control that that the pilot was flying too low for flight following that's not necessarily a warning as much as the it's just a statement of who we are we can help you out based on where you are can't get a new whatever it is that they need in order to maintain that following the pilot been requested two wives add to avoid a cloud layer and ask the air traffic control for clearance I was the last contact between the pilot and an air traffic control so of radar indicated that the aircraft rose to about twenty three hundred feet and then there was the old black descending turned and then that was the last radar contact what we know on the ground is that when it hit it was at just about one thousand eighty five feet above sea level and the the pre field is about five to six hundred feet they've got a pretty it didn't scatter you know if you if you think about your crap accidents and crashes often those debris fields will last for maybe a half mile or a mile or even further so they can join idea of just how hard the aircraft was able to it hit the surface there yeah and it's still it does really seem like the weather I've probably played the most important factor obvious we don't know yet if there was any type of mechanical failure or whatnot but just all those requests or and and he was granted the pilot was granted to fly in these poor weather conditions it just really seems that all of that is adding up to what was the culprit and as you said in the end when he climbed up and then drop back down so rapidly that was where everybody unfortunately perished and and you know investigators and and corners were out there trying to gather remains and even the terrain there is a little difficult they all had to to hike in and and be flown in as well yeah so the NTSB is actually asking for pictures for people who are around Calabasas and had taken pictures of the weather conditions or had taken pictures somewhere near the crash site they can get an idea of what the weather conditions were like they were also pretty quickly after making that request did they were pretty quick if they live and it's not that we're just focusing on the weather here there are all of these other factors we have to look into but this is just one important piece of the puzzle certainly there are and there is a lot of reporting out there about how difficult it is the flying conditions like this how big back while there was it specifically above Cameri all our Q. three above but how about this and how easy perhaps we could have been for the pilot to become disoriented while the either asking for that for that increase in altitude or while out what movie across what had been activated is that the aircraft hit the help that is a pretty high rate of speed around a hundred sixty miles an hour so yeah they they they told you that the pilot was at least moving with a certain degree of purpose yeah and every time there's a crash a plane crash or something like that people always ask is there a black box and that's not the case with this one right there's nothing there was no black box on this helicopter no they're not required to be black box on aircraft like that and yet in court to talk about the aircraft as well as the course you that if the twin engine aircraft built yeah that that's important when you're trying to narrow down the possibilities of what could happen because yeah we have two engine I mean one failed you least have enough power to to work your way back down to the ground in an emergency landing in in this case we didn't hear any sort of emergency call there was no mayday that we know of infer that tells you that whatever happened happened quickly and was catastrophic enough that the pilot couldn't even get anything out on the radio which in most cases is instantaneous it's always important to remember the victims and all of this obviously everybody knows Kobe Bryant and and you know the world the sports world a lot of people really feel for that but you know it also included in the victims were his thirteen year old daughter Johnnie who goes by Gigi us some of her friends that I play basketball with her their parents and coaches I mean that they were on their way to one of Kobe's sports at tournaments are one of the or their basketball tournaments where his daughter was going to play and you know these were all just people United by the sport of basketball obviously a lot has been made about his daughter and her aspirations with basketball and they've seat been seen together at Laker games but these are the victims really a very close knit group of of people who who played basketball together and he coached the team things like that yeah you know it's important to think about this in the in the context of what they were doing and where they were going so that the mamba cop was this big back all tournament and I thought that the mamba sports academy which was something started in created by Kobe Bryant not just for use force but also yeah I'll be here great stories about NBA players who trained up there with Kobe or with other players it's just a really nice facility or not only basketball but also other sports like volleyball up there and so you you're you've got these people that are geared to go go back up there again there down in Newport beach seventy air miles from from thousand oaks and if anybody knows anything about southern California Subir mild bout five hours of driving when you really consider traffic even on a Sunday so that they give you an idea of why graph they were flying up there and they're flying up there with the number of people who were from the neighborhood and yeah I guess not really hidden within the strategy but certainly a piece of the strategy tragedy if you have a couple of families that are just but I mean they're incredibly impacted the other fellow for all the belly family had three family members the the father the wife and one of their daughters on that flight so you've got I think there are two other kids who now are having to deal with basically losing more than half of their family Chris and Carla news correspondent for I heart media based in Los Angeles thank you for joining us yeah of course
Kobe Bryant's helicopter tried to climb to avoid clouds before crash, investigators say
"I guess the the pilot of the helicopter that was Kobe Bryant his thirteen year old daughter and the seven other people to crash Sunday morning radio the air traffic controllers in his last message that he was climbing to avoid a cloudless that according to national transportation safety board Jennifer Harman the news conference yesterday how many said the radar indicated the helicopter reached a height of about twenty three hundred feet before before plunging more than a thousand feet into the hillside in Calabasas leading theory has been that the pilot got disoriented in the heavy fog did get special clearance to find those conditions just minutes before they lifted off at home and he said and T. S. B. investigators they're gonna look at all possible factors crews continue to recover remains from the victims from that site yesterday
'The blob,' food supply squeeze to blame for largest seabird die-off
"The unexpected death of a million Pacific Ocean birds apparently researchers at the university of Washington say you can blame it on the blob como score one heck explains from twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen scientists know why thousands of small water fowl called the common murder or washing up dead on ocean beaches from California to Alaska wildlife biologist Dr John pie it tells KGW news this much was clear majority of these birds regardless of where they came out they were starving they had they were very at Macy's now researchers at the university of Washington and the U.

Geological Survey have published a paper blaming the blob the patch of the Pacific a thousand miles long and three hundred feet deep inexplicably up to eleven degrees warmer than the surrounding ocean the new research says the warmer water killed the small fish the common murder and other sea birds feed on since the twenty fifteen die off the Merv population has recovered and the blonde has broken up but now scientists say a new Pacific blob is beginning for when news
Ancient Seawall Found Submerged in Israel

Religious submerged under the sea and who really is an underwater archaeologist at the University of Asia. He says one submerged village called. Tell Fred sits five to ten feet under the water. The community was populated some seven thousand in years ago there. The archaeologists have found pottery and flint human skeletons the remains of deer cows pigs dogs and hundreds of olive pits probably the remains of olive oil production and the researchers also found a three hundred foot long stretch of huge boulders. A wall after ruling out possible other uses for the wall all like defense against enemies or corralling animals. The scientists determined that the formation was actually an ancient seawall the oldest known example in the world the results answer in the journal plus one the boulders that kept the waters of the Mediterranean from flooding.

Therapist collects dreams about climate change
"If you've had a dream about climate change there's a therapist in New York who'd love hear about it when I collect extremes. I find them interesting because the all of our psyches working on the same problem early this year. Martha Crawford started the climate dreams project. She invites people to report their dreams on our blog and she scours twitter for posts about dreams of climate impacts such as storms rising seas and extinction these climate impacts are real. But the dreams they inspire are often fantastical for example people described dreams of three hundred foot waves polar bears in their homes and blizzards in the summer. Crawford says many of the dreams reflect feelings feelings of anxiety fear or morning but in others people dream about solutions or convincing someone to care about global warming. He see that people are working on this as as they sleep. Crawford says her collection of dreams indicates that people are struggling to come to grips with climate change and as her project grows.

How Can We Film Giant Squid?
"Today's episode is brought to you by ibm. Technology is becoming more open data more accessible and the world more innovative i._b._m. Is combining their industry expertise with the open source leadership of red hat to bring you more freedom more security or flexibility. Let's unlock the world's potential. Let's put smart to work learn more at i._b._m. Dot com slash red hat. Welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren bocom here. The giant squid is carnivorous invertebrate that weighs over four hundred and forty pounds or two hundred kilograms and measures around thirty three feet or ten meters long. Yes it can be as long as a school bus and has is the size of dinner plates along with a sharp beak in short. It's a little disconcerting. Perhaps apps more. Disconcerting is the fact that these wild creatures which have rarely ever been spotted alive have been popping up in the videos in recent years very much alive and very very large urge before two thousand four that only been found his carcasses washed up on beaches or captured by fishermen so what's going on under the sea is a rash shove giant squid sightings and indication that these see giants are taking over the waves in a word not but the sightings do indicate technology is advancing an and exciting new ways. We spoke edith witter p._h._d. The c. e. o. m. senior scientist of florida's ocean research in conservation association inc did she said it hasn't really been a rash of giant squid sightings. There have only been two times giant squid have been filmed in the deep sea both times the animals were spotted with help from a camera system and optical lure that witter developed to help researchers explore the creatures of the deep sea without scaring them away the camera system is called called. Medusa medusa is unlike any recording device used before because it emits a red light. That's an invisible to most creatures living in the midnight zone. That's the expanse pitch black water about three thousand three hundred feet or thousand meters below the ocean surface then there's the optical lure an electronic jellyfish that accompanies medusa down below the waves to help draw creatures toward the camera with an innovative method that takes inspiration from animals natural cues called an e jelly witter explained blamed the each elliott imitates the bioluminescence burglar alarm display of a common deep sea jellyfish bioluminescence burglar alarms are like scream for help using liked liked their last-ditch effort of pray that are caught in the clutches of a predator to attract the attention of a bigger predator that may attack their attacker and thereby afford them an opportunity for escape escape until just fifteen years ago. The only facts known about giant squid were gathered from their massive dead bodies since live ones had never been seen then then in two thousand and four the first live images of giant squid were captured and in two thousand twelve. The first video of a giant squid emerged thanks to medusa capturing specimen swimming off of japan's cassara archipelago. It wasn't until june of two thousand nineteen that another medusa shot giant squid video came to light this time of a roughly ten foot long. That's three remitters young swimmer in u._s. Waters around the gulf of mexico june twenty nineteen marked the fifth deployment of medusa on this particular expedition and when witter and her team examined the video the undeniable footage of a long tentacle creature reaching out for the jelly. It's hard to tell exactly how big it was because it was heading straight towards the camera. All these years of underwater chasing begs the question. Why are these animals so camera. Shy in the first place witter said the giant giant squid has been elusive because our standard methods of exploration using platforms with bright lights and noisy thrusters has been scaring away the only reason we even knew giant squid existed assisted is because they happen to float when they die so dead and dying specimens have been seen and photographed surface. How many other animals are they're living in the deep sea that we don't know about because we've been scaring them away and they don't happen to float when they die a good and perhaps even more disconcerting question indeed today's episode was written by michelle concept dusky and produced by tyler.

Not all fossils are bones or shells or tc. Most of us would agree that mammoth tusks and stegosaurus spikes are pretty darn cool and yet the fossil record is not limited to old body parts fossil's are defined as any naturally preserved remains or traces of life forms that existed in in the geologic past and that covers a lot of ground and that's sort of a pun because the fossils can take the form of a footprint leave impression or filled tunnel left behind by prehistoric land beavers. One of the strangest fossils ever discovered is actually a cave about fifteen million years ago in what's now eastern in washington state of okina fissure eruptions and lava streaming into a shallow river lake where rhino happened to be wallowing a layer of basaltic rock formed formed around the beast preserving the outline of its well cooked body long after the flesh rotted away leaving only a few bones for millions of years this rhino shaped hole in the earth lay hidden in the cliffs washington's grant county near blue lake a popular hiking destination by the nineteen thirties erosion had worn cornhole into one end of subterranean creature mold exposed to open air.

Today and none of living five species are indigenous to north or south america america however from about forty to seventy million years ago rhinos common in north america somewhere hippo like semi aquatic animals others had wicked tusks instead of the nasal horns we see in their modern day counterparts paleontologists think the blue lake cave likely formed around the corpse of a die sarah theory him mm-hmm while female dies. There were horn lewis. Each adult male had a pair of small horns sitting side by side near the tip of his snout. The dimensions of the blue lake cave tell us that the dice area mm-hmm left behind was about eight feet. That's two point four meters long from snout career and still a little bit less than four feet. That's one point two meters eaters tall at the shoulder in life. The animal probably weighed about a ton or so. Nobody knows if the creature had already died when it became entombed however <unk> judging by the contours of the mold it seems the body was rather bloated. This could indicate the decomposition was already setting in also the legs are pointed skyward telling telling us the rhino may have been floating on its back in the state of rigor mortis. The caves walls are made of fifteen million year old pillow assault a kind of ignatius rock that normally forums when lava contacts cold water and rapidly cools down so dead or alive the dice earth area must have been hanging out in a body of water during a volcanic eruption option then the lava came pouring in. Maybe it got knocked over anyway. Lava can hit temperatures of more than one thousand six hundred degrees fahrenheit. That's nine hundred degrees celsius. Ordinarily this ultra hot material would have burned right through the beasts skin flesh and bone but instead the cold water converted the molten rock into a tightly packed layer of hardening pillow assault the corpse eventually rotted away and even most of its bones disappeared yet the mole that enveloped the bodies stayed largely intact a- largely but not entirely a when you think about it the fact that we even know this weird little cave exists is pretty amazing thing millions of years after the thing formed flowing water carved an opening in the mold right about where the rhinos hindquarters used to be a yet erosion hasn't strayed completely today. The case entrance is big enough for an adult person to enter but getting inside may prove difficult for some visitors you see the blue lake. Bryan cave is located in the face of a cliff about three hundred feet or ninety one meters above the lake shares its name during the summer of nineteen thirty five to adventures couples calls from seattle were hiking around the cliff in search of petrified wood on their trip. The court happened to discover the cave. They had the honor of becoming the first people in recorded history enter enter the prehistoric rhino mold inside. They noticed a handful of fragmentary animal bone fossils including partial jaw. These were sent to paleobotanist the george f beck of central washington university who couldn't resist visiting the site for himself upon gathering more bones listed california institute of technology paleontologist chester mr stock to identify them stock determined that the bony bits came from an extinct rhino soon scientific community realized that the cave itself was a full body cast of that that very same animal abuse to last drew breath fifteen million years ago in nineteen forty eight a team from the university of california at berkeley heroically scaled the cliff and filled the cave with plaster creating three-dimensional duplicate of the interior also an exact hollow replica of the cave was put on display at seattle's burke museum where it still stands today.
