"Oscar sat on the dock sipping coffee from chipped mug while he stared across the peaceful bluewater. The son had yet to make its way over the mission mountains. It was picturesque almost worth getting up at this hour. Almost oskar was no early bird after the army. He vowed to never again get up before sunrise. It was the main appeal of his job at the bank but he wasn't going fishing for himself. He was doing this for his best friend. The roar of a model a rumbled behind him. Oscar smiled. He knew that sound that bought that car from his dad. When oscar and matt got back from the war it was ancient them and that was nearly a decade ago. Oskar chugged his coffee and gave himself a pep talk. Matt needs this so don't complain. He smiled and waved. As matt backed up the car and the twelve foot john boat he towed behind it down the ramp and the water that called out to oscar. Figured you'd be wearing your bank. Close today matt's blue eyes looked sharp and clear and he was already busting oscars chops like used to those. Were good signs. Oscar worried about matt. Who was a little unstable these days. Not that oscar blamed him matt had been laid off. His wife had left him but they weren't going to talk about the sad stuff today. Today was about fishing. one thing. The two friends could still agree on after all these years or at least it was one thing matt loved that oscar could tolerate. Oscar hated hiking and hunting to him.

"The three massachusetts towns of abington rehoboth and freetown exist a triangular slice of land. That has become home to hundreds of reports of unexplainable phenomenon. It's known as the bridgewater triangle though. Some call it the black triangle or the devil's triangle. It might not be swallowing up. Fighter jets and colonial era ships like the bermuda triangle to the south but its history is just as storied and mysterious. One of the areas within. The triangle is the hawks swamp. It's a seventeen thousand acre wetland near bridgewater massachusetts in the sixteen hundreds it was inhabited by the wapping noah tribe of native americans and the fort. They built inside. It became a strategic location for them during king. Philip's war in sixteen seventy four one legend details how during this time of upheaval and invasion by the colonies. A powerful artifact was lost in the swamp. now. I can't find anything beyond a small wikipedia entry to confirm this but the story tells of how an object known as the wadham belt was lost during the war and as a result the swamp became the home to restless spirits. Ever since the swamp has been the source of nearly endless supply of unexplainable sightings one of the most dramatic and best documented reports was made by local police officer. Sergeant thomas downey on a summer night. In nineteen seventy-one downey was driving toward the town of eastern near a place known as bird hill that sits at the edge of the swamp as he approached the hill he caught sight of an enormous winged creature. Downey claims that it was over six feet tall and had a wingspan of almost twelve feet. After reporting the sighting to the east police he quickly earned the nickname of the birdman about you but it seems odd that a police officer would risk his reputation on such an unusual claim. If it was just a joke officer. He clearly saw something that night. Just what that thing was of course is open to debate

The is were what helped him make the sculpture more than just a piece of stone. And so as you looked up at the president's carved into mount rushmore. He got an idea.

An Unexplained Monolith in the Utah Desert

"A helicopter crew from. Utah's department of public safety. Were on a routine assignment coming bighorn sheep in the southeastern part of the state when they spotted a mysterious silver monolith in the middle of the red rock standing about ten to twelve feet tall. Perfect shiny triangular prism the crew. Says it definitely looks like it was planted there on purpose not dropped from above on accident. Short of some nasa experiment pilot brit. Hutchings thinks it was probably put there by an artist maybe fan of two thousand one. A space odyssey. It does bear a striking resemblance to the black monolith that appears in that film but the department of public safety reminded people in a statement that installations on public land require permits quote. No matter what planet. You're from end quotes. They've also said they won't disclose exactly where they found it. Because it's in a location that could be dangerous to navigate for amateur hikers. And they don't want to cause curious visitors to injure themselves or become stranded. But they did post a bunch of photos and videos taken by the crew with the monolith including one where one of the guys standing on top of another one's shoulders to get a measurement of the monolith against lincoln. The show notes. So you can see for yourself with this mysterious structure. Looks like i'm kind of curious how long it's been there you know. How often do people fly over this part of red rock country looking for sheep or otherwise paying close enough attention to have noticed it. The guardian pointed out that some people have noticed. The monolith bears striking resemblance to the works of artists. John mccracken who did live in nearby new mexico but died. Eight years ago he's galleries. David's werner did not return request for comment from the guardian. Is it possible. The monolith has been there for over eight years just waiting to be discovered or was it planted by someone else or some thing else. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Breaking down the VP debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris

"Comma Harris and Mike. Pence came face to face though through plexiglass for the first and only vice presidential debate of this cycle the barriers, twelve feet of distance between the candidates, all reminders of the pandemic that has upended the campaign, the White House our entire country as well as what's at stake in this election. The. American. People have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration as the very first the President. Donald Trump has put the health of America first they knew they covered it up. The president said, it was a hoax. China is to blame for the coronavirus. President trump is not happy about it. Joe Biden has been very clear. He will not raise taxes on anybody who makes less than four hundred thousand Sunday here peel the trump tax cuts. Let's vice president speaking. Speaking. We have seen a pattern with this administration, which is they don't believe in science climate is changing. We'll follow the science. Are you Joe Biden going to pack the court if Joe Jamie CONYBEARE is confirmed American people are voting right now and it should be their decision. About who will serve on this most important body for a lifetime we need reform of our policing in America and our criminal justice system, which is why Joe and I will immediately ban choke holes and karate Geor-, George. Floyd alive today if we did that, there's no excuse for what happened to George Floyd. Justice will be served. But there's also no excuse for the rioting and looting that followed, we will not let anyone subvert our democracy with what Donald Trump has been doing as he did on the debate stage last week when again in front of seventy million people. He openly. Attempted to suppress the vote president trump and are fighting every day in court houses to prevent. Joe Biden Kamla from change in the rules and creating this universal mail in voting little create a massive opportunity for voter fraud. Again it is bracing to hear a sitting vice president talk about efforts to combat mail in voting during a pandemic. But that's policy for help and separating some of the fact from fiction that we heard tonight. During this debate, we are joined by our friend, Ari Melber host of the six PM Eastern our on this very network also happens to be our chief legal correspondent Ari. There was a lot there. There was a lot there in as you and others have covered Ryan. We heard more of it more audible and civil debate, which is good for voters good for civics because their claims and we're GONNA. Go through a couple of them. Briefly here was vice president pence making a claim which may sound to you like a stretch take a look. Our air and land or cleaner than any time ever recorded our water is among the cleanest in the world. Fact check false indeed during the pendency of the trump administration. To pick one example, the air quality has been fifteen percent worse more on healthy over the past two years. You can see that here with some background, the Associated Press. Now, we'll move forward on CO VID vice president pence was often trying to basically turn things back against the Obama administration's record. One of the things he mentioned may have struck out too many people was this claim that there were sixty million cases of swine flu in the previous administration, and as you can see right here, that is true. So he gets partly true on this claim. Had He stopped there he'd. Be Fine Brian but then the vice president went on to argue that somehow if you apply the virus death toll right now, the swine flu, you'd have even more death under the Obama Administration bit of a Hypothetical Hypothetical Bank shot also, not true they have different fatality rates and some medical experts have pointed out it is also a bit of a stretch to take your own administrations death-ray, which is higher than any other developed democracies and then project that through math hypothetically on a different pandemic that was less deadly third, and finally because I want to keep it moving Brian I did have this moment that really jumped out take a look. Let's talk about respecting the American people. You respect the American people when you tell them the truth, you respect the American people when you have the courage which we've leaders. Which we've always done the claim there from a representative of the trump pence administration that is a big giant false indeed. The Washington. Post and other fact checkers have found that Donald Trump tells more lies and falsehoods than any president in either party in history to count is over twenty thousand,

Paper, Rocks or Digits: What Makes the Best Money?

"What makes the best money? I've been reading a number of books recently on money. Money the unauthorized biography by Felix Martin and money the true story of a made up thing by Jacob Goldstein. Both of these books have examples of different types of money that's been used in the past. Fascinating examples that you might not be aware of. and. We WanNa look at them and think about what is it? That makes something money. Money evolves and has evolved and will continue to evolve in what we used as money today might be very different decades from now. The first example is from the island of Yap. This is an island in the Western Pacific part of the Caroline Islands. It is now part of the Federated States of Micronesia. The people of the APP lift on the run over separated from other cultures for many many years. We'll in one, thousand, nine, three, an anthropologist who had also been trained as a medical doctor from new. England William Henry Furness went to Yep for two months and studied this people. And it wasn't a very advanced economy with. Three products, fish coconut and sea cucumbers, but they had something unique that they used for money. Furnace describes his money as large solid thick stone wheels ranging in diameter from a foot to twelve feet. Having the center a whole varying in size with the diameter of the stone wearing a poll may be inserted sufficiently large and strong to bear the weight and facilitate transportation. This was their money. It was called FAE. FBI are also it's called why are? The money was quarried in an island three hundred miles away babble up. And then it was transported on rafts towed behind canoes that had sales on them. Took a lot of effort to get this money. When furnace I saw it. He realized this really heavy and wrote when it takes four strong men to steal the price of a pig burglary cannot but prove a somewhat disheartening. These things were so big and heavy, you couldn't steal them. But then he observed as transactions took place that these stones were He wrote the noteworthy feature of this stone currency is that it is not necessary for its owner to reduce it to possession after concluding a bargain which evolves the price of a fe too large to be conveniently moved. Its new owner is quite content to accept the bare acknowledgement of ownership without so much as a mark to indicate the exchange, the coin remains undisturbed on the former owner's premises. In fact, there was one family furnace pointed out where the stone was lost from where it was quarried and had been several hundred feet at the bottom of the ocean for several generations. Yet the family that owned it everyone recognized that they still on that and that they were wealthy. Furnace wrote the purchasing power of that stone remains therefore as valid as if it were. Visibly, against the side of the owner's house and represents wealth as potentially as the horrid inactive gold of a miser in the middle, ages or as our silver dollar stacked in the Treasury in Washington which we never see or touch but trade with on the strength of a print certificate that there there. Is. The belief that it had value. Felix Martin wrote money was not the fe but the underlying system of credit accounts and clearing a which they help to keep track. The Fe would just tokens which these accounts were kept. They had an accounting system that tracked the trading of fish and sea cucumbers. And they would have outstanding balances and sometimes they will set up and maybe they would move the fe but often times they wouldn't. But there was the record that was there. Peter Bernstein in his book the power of Gold History of an obsession wrote the FE of Yep we're stores of. Wealth. Stores of wealth. Sit. Money moves it travels from one pocket to another. A store of wealth is mass. It was the transactions, the accounting record, and the trust between the participants that form their monetary system. The stones were a store of wealth, but we're just some tokens. The first documented use of money is from Sumer around thirty five, hundred BC. This is in southern, Mesopotamia. There were vast temple palace complexes there with thousands of crafts people farmers. Shepherds, bureaucrats. and. They wrote on clay tablets in cuneiform script and they wrote contracts evolving the workings of the temple debts owed rents. Effectively. It was money because it was an accounting record and you would have accounts receivable that you could trade. David Graber who recently passed away in his book debt. The first five thousand years wrote the value of a unit of currency is not the measure of the value of an object, but the measure of trust in other human beings.

Can I Prune an Overgrown Rhododendron Now or in the Spring?

"Jason said in question. He says I have an out-of-control Rhododendron. It's about twelve feet high and it's moving out over the sidewalk. I'd like to cut it back is now or spring better time and I'd like to cut it back to three or four feet tall week. Okay. I don't know how to handle this. Sorry did he hasn't been keeping up with it Over time. However, that being said I'm going to start with a truck accident and that is a mail truck that was parked. It was evacuated package were taking the building the truck brake apparently hadn't been set. It turned up over the curb went in and broke off about twelve foot tall rhododendrons ripe add bumper height. So let's just say it thirty inches I have an old Lord. That's the end of those while I went by two years later. They had been left in they had to had all the dead removed and so on and they had grown back another six inches. I suppose nine inches each year. I was dumbfounded. I thought it would kill them. However didn't so where what is being suggested is a really delicate in terms of balance of what will and won't make it I'd say go ahead now, I would definitely under these circumstances cut it off in the early spring. I don't even know what date to put on it, but around April 1st some time prior to the plant. Well it just even back into March sometime prior to that plant wasting any energy putting out New Growth new leaves flowing etcetera. I would prone it Bend so that it can log So to speak just to the loss. It will not have expended energy from the root and Crown area up into the plant. It won't have used up enough. But what there should be plenty of energy left to start to excite the buds in the by that means get them to Growing that are on the lower parts of the plant. Now, this is risky. However, as I say the truck off on its own it took out three plants and I was dumbfounded that came along quite so nicely. So if well, first of all, I would do it in Spring only 1/8, I would do it before you even lose the flowers just so you don't cause that energy deficit any greater than it will be then I would definitely dress the surface around those months starting twelve inches out or at a plant thirteen twelve inches out from the trunk. I would put some acid fertilizer on the ground throughout the whole area. That would have been the drip line of the place. It's a 12-footer could be 4 or 4 and 1/2 even five feet across.

Scale, Proportion and choosing Art for your Walls

"Is how an item relates to the size of the room while proportion is the relationship between items. For example, we've all been to a home that has an overstuffed SOFA in a smaller sized living room there just doesn't seem to be enough room to move about comfortably. It's because the scale is wrong the smaller the Rome is the more petite or delicate the furnishings and decor should be. If you have a smaller square foot home or have normal sized ceilings. The scale of things should be generally smaller than that of a home with nine or twelve foot ceilings and a bigger footprint. Will what does that mean when you're at that typical store deciding which planter to get and you have a three thousand, five, hundred square foot home with nine foot ceilings you almost always would choose the largest one available in this scenario. Now remember standing there at the store you might not fully understand your scale at home because you are in the store. So your eyes are registering that planter next to the planters beside it. That, planter might look so huge because it's sold next to smaller ones but once you get at home with your tall ceilings and oversized couch it feels proportionate. It feels right. It doesn't look huge at all when you get home because the scale of everything is bigger. The answer might be different however, if you already have a large planter in your shopping for two more that together with the largest one will become a cluster. In which case you need to think of the proportion of the larger one in relation to the two, you'll be buying not all three should probably be the same size unless you're lining them up down the sidewalk for example, to make that sort of repetitive statement, which can be very attractive. So. In this example, I explained proportion referring to the size of the two new planters and how it relates to the existing planter in the room. We have tall ceilings but a relatively small footprint. So my answer to everything everywhere to myself in our case, both indoors and outdoors is small footprint item. But Tall, you've all seen tall and skinny planters just because you're room is small and you don't have much square footage it doesn't mean you have to forego the things you want. It just means you might need to think of the puzzle differently. Take, for example, our master bedroom. The only thing that makes it a master is that it has a really large walking closet with a window and a decent size master bathroom. It's not the size of the room itself that makes it a master. We have nine foot tall ceilings and three windows. So it certainly light and bright, but the footprint itself is small. Are King. Size bed measures, seven feet, and some change including the frame. I would call it not proportionate to our bedroom because that is eleven feet deep leaving a walkway clearance of just four feet between the bed and the wall. But I, need my space when I sleep and so I decided I would take my space and reasons senses and figure this out. We needed a solution to hold the cable box for the flat panel TV mounted on the wall at the end of the bed with just four feet of walkway putting credential. Here was not an option. It was just too tight and didn't allow enough passage between the two. I searched the world over for something wall mounted that can hold a few books o'clock plant and the cable box discreetly. After months of looking I found a company out of California. Called would waves. To My delight this company lines up with my love of products that serve more than one purpose to conserve resources while saving space. From mid century modern to coastal and Beechy. Guys have options and man do I love options for rooms with a small footprint? I cannot say enough how much I love a wall mounted credentials at nightstand or dual purpose shelf they have mirrors with lights on them. They have wall mounted bookcases with a floating nightstand and so much more. You can find them on the interwebs at would waves dot com we chose a bed frame with a higher tufted headboard and that means part of it is art or interest in the room because of its height and texture in scenarios like this you'll want to avoid too many items on the walls which can easily end up looking junkie or like too much clutter. Smaller frames can be clustered together in a grid so it's clean and polished. Remember to leave blank space in each room both on the wall, and above furniture a room looks cluttered when every square inch of it is filled to the brim, the I needs room to rest. So provide it by leaving some services bear and make sure you can see the baseboards at several spots in each room.

How Can I Prune a Wild Looking Elderberry Plant?

"I have both the common and black lace elderberry. The black lace is better behaved but the common one has crazy growth. The stems also seemed to be quite fragile. Can you please tell me when and how to Prune it? I'm laughing because of the description I'm going to start with the black lace I just lost mine last year it has probably been twenty. Twenty plus years in a given spot. Now, it started off with multiple stems as they do I decided. To try something so I cut away the extra stems left one good solid when in in the middle of the crown and it grew to the point of having about a three inch diameter trunk under it, it stood Twelve feet tall at the very tallest part and probably eight to ten wide. It just simply expired based on time as far as I know No, it was well behaved I, had to prune it but it was like. The heroine, a scarecrow. On the common one one of the is when I used to hunt. Along well, we'd end up near railroad track and turned away from that. There was a given plant, a natural and native plant as unkempt as a plant can be each year got bigger and so on I I'm GonNa say then having seen that one multiple times and then exposed to others along the way I think it's kind of a natural thing and she just needs to prune it and in the flowers on new stems she could prune. Well anytime up until. I. Suppose. Middle of our well, let's just say the beginning of April because it would be setting new new stems and things get it managed. Or restricted at before that point in time and let it go ahead and flower. The flowers are nothing remarkable per se and in terms of a white. As she's noted, but at the same time, it can be just full of flowers when it's in bloom and it's particularly outstanding with creamy white flour against the black lace fully. So I think she's dealing with a natural situation and It's just like an unruly kid you gotta deal with it a little bit more often.

The Great Escapes with Life Death and Taxonomy

"If you've been staying inside as much as possible these past few months. That's a little easier to do now that the summer heat has fully set in your probably anxious to get out to fly the coop as it were. Animals who can fly should be getting out of zoos all the time. It would stand to reason. Though. usually therein enclosures netting across them, or they've had their wings clipped. That's a process of trimming off birds largest flight feathers, so they can't get enough. Lift when they flap which I'm probably going to end up doing to our backyard chickens if they don't knock off the free ranging. Birds generally stay in captivity pretty well, but of course there are exceptions to the rule or I wouldn't have brought it up. In two thousand, five and African Flamingo managed to get away from the Sedgwick county sue in Kansas. A massive search was launched, but The crabs backup singer was nowhere to be found. Until two thousand thirteen, when he was spotted, six hundred and fifty miles away on the Gulf coast of Texas among a flock of wild local flamingos. Bird watcher named Neil Hayward have been able to confirm the flamingos identity by the numbered band on his leg and offered to help recapture it. The Zoo essentially said I'm not even mad. I'm impressed and told the folks in Texas to leave the Flamingo to his new life with a mate who had herself escaped from a Mexican Nature Reserve. Anyone who's dealt with a parrot knows that they're too clever by half, and that certainly applies to Cuba the mccaw a resident of Vancouver's Zoos Parrot Gardens. Even, though the suet taken all precautions to prevent the parrots from escaping, it seemed that the clever girl was hell bent on getting out. On a pleasant Spring Day in two thousand nine zoo staff had moved the parrots to an outdoor enclosure. A little while later, their headcount came up short. The keepers weren't panicked. All the birds had their wings clipped. So how far could you have gotten? Surprisingly are considering. She hitched a ride in an RV. Juba got into a compartment near the vehicle's Engine Bay and hung out for three days before the family in Rv, found her. Luckily they were on one of the more stationary parts of their vacation and had only gone twenty miles, so it was barely out of their way to take what I'm assuming was a very annoyed parrot back to the zoo. Anyone who's watched? Jailbreak movie knows that you won't get very far without stealing a set of wheels. Try to imagine the end of the great escape without the motorcycles. No good. Even one? The Indian spectacle at the Berlin soon knew that. In two thousand and four, he rode a log across the moat, the rounds, the bear habitat and scaled a wall to freedom. Now that he was out, he had to use this time wisely. I stop the zoos playground. Terrified parents rushed their children away while one had a jolly go on the merry go round and went down the slide. After getting bored of that fairly quickly, one wandered off only to find a bicycle across his path. When he stopped to examine it perhaps to assess it for its usability as a getaway vehicle, the keepers who had put it there were able to track him and carry all three hundred pounds or one hundred and thirty six kilos of air to his habitat. And potentially dangerous could also describe a gator named Chuckie who got loose from the Alabama Gold Coast in two, thousand, four with a little help from Hurricane Ivan. Zookeepers hadn't been able to evacuate the gators and the storm surge destroyed their enclosure, setting them loose. Them meaning plural gators, though only chucky got any real publicity. Rapidly due to the fact that he was twelve feet or three point seven meters long and weighed about half a ton. That makes for better copy. Zoo officials weren't as worried about Chucky, going native, as they were of Chucky, going up to people expecting to be fed as he had for the past fourteen. Here's a situation that could get very ugly very fast. Luckily dedicated alligator retrieval team from gator land in Orlando was able to catch chucky less than a week later. Some animals get by with a little help from their friends or even from strangers. Three kangaroos staged a daring escape from a wildlife park near Frankfurt Germany. The name of whom I am now going to attempt to say. The hawksbill shoot par concert. It is what it is taken early vote. They escaped by going under the fence. Thanks to the work of a Fox and wild boar.

The Murchison Murders

"The Murchison his large raging in the state of Western Australia. That's nine for it's agricultural and mining prospects. Spinning across two hundred, ninety, one thousand square kilometers, the region is home to many small sparsely populated towns that consists mostly of rugged up back and Darod Bush land. During the Western Australian Goldrush of the light eighteen hundreds, many people flocked to the area in the hopes of securing a fortune which resulted in the construction of several towns that were later abandoned when the short lived gold rush ended. Afterwards there was little work available except for agricultural workers shape, shearer's camel and toe spike is blacksmiths and boundary riders who were employed to maintain the outer edges of sheep and cattle stations. But. The turn of the Twentieth Century Roberts from the country's ace than sites had made their way across the desert, and into Western Australia's agricultural areas. European settlers had introduced the rabbits to Australia more than a hundred years earlier and to die, eventually became an invasive pest that caused significant damage to the country's ecology and farmland. To combat what became known as the great plague? The Western Australian government decided to build the world's longest fence which stretched all the way from the north. Coast to the south coast. In Nineteen, Oh two construction of the first phase began in the small wheatbelt belt in of Barak Open which became the major administration center for the fence. A twenty foot wide lawn was cleared through the Bush all the way south to a small bay called starvation. Boat Harbor and the Mesh fence was then erected to fate west of the center of the line. Twelve foot gates were installed at designated intervals to allow passage through the fence. Wooden posts were also added every mile h Ma with a number that represented the distance from Barak, open. In nineteen, Ninety five, the second phase began with the remainder of the fence, being built from Barracuda open to the north coast of Western Australia. Stretching for one thousand, eight, hundred twenty seven kilometers, it became known as the number one rabbit proof fence. The number two fence was completed in April of ninety five, and was one thousand, one hundred and fifty eight kilometers loan. It began on the south coast, approximately one hundred twelve kilometers west of the number, one fans, and essentially ran parallel to it before turning east and joining the first fence at Gum Creek. The number three fence, which was completed in Nineteen, seven, started knee Geraldton and extended two hundred and fifty six. Columba's east until it met the number two fence. Collectively the rabbit proof fence was three, thousand, two, hundred thirty seven kilometers long and building. It had cost the equivalent of around eighty three million Australian dollars in today's currency. A government sub department was established to supervise the constant maintenance of the fence. The maintenance team included a shape inspect off sobbing inspector, camel drivers. Rabbit hunters and boundary rod is. Fines were issued to anyone court leaving negates along the fence open, and it was also an offense, but any member of the public to use any of its maintenance tracks. Scattered along, the fence was small. Government earned stations and homesteads when maintenance supplies, watersheds and other facilities were housed.

this is a group of them they do kill plants they literally you know stop the sap from blowing up by making all those holes they drill holes to try and get the sap out but everywhere they drill a hole in the sap can't go off on the plan and then they die it is quite an and I've seen them kill even large blue atlas cedars and they usually the usually the plants that that suffer the most are either magnolias or big vide Barnes so I'm surprised that they got to your Holly order well thank you very much I would have thought of the role so read the the Holly is good it is my favorite Holly was bred

"Creek and other indigenous peoples from the eastern United States now we're not talking about twelve foot giants who are anything extraordinary like that. Which about what on the order of seven foot, seven and a half feet. Well, that's that's a a really excellent point. And that's why I refer to them myself as the tall ones. It's not only a much more appropriate descriptive term. But it is also the term which was used for them by the tribal elders consulted by the great native, American scholar. Vying? Loria who published about this in his book red earth white lies in nineteen ninety seven. The actual reports of archaeologists that acknowledge the larger remains going back to the excavations of the Smithsonian in the eighteen eighties. Are describing people who range between seven and eight feet in height with very powerful musculature is evidenced by the attachments, which are detectable in servicable on the bones. Very thick skulls who practice. Started facial cranial deformation their facial skeleton was also very pronounced in powerful. They had large brow ridges, but it's been well known since the mid twentieth century that these people did not have any type of disease that caused these trade they were studied by numerous physical anthropologists from Ohio, and Illinois, and other places these bones. So there was a genetic component to this. It just happens to be a very widespread genetic component. So why the controversy why for example, do we not see the remains of these tall ones in the Smithsonian or other museums? Why some researchers claim has it been suppressed? Well, first of all you're not seeing remains because the burial law the laws regarding the respect for native American human remains at this point strongly. Discourages the display of any room remains from prehistoric tunes that that are in the ancestry of native Americans, but in terms of the policy of denial. The reason why this subject became blacklisted in the first place really has nothing to do with modern archaeology whatsoever. It goes back to the beginning of the twentieth century when you Genesis and scientific racialist took over the hierarchy of the department of anthropology at the Smithsonian and a man named alias heard lich initiated a policy of denial. By which the Smithsonian would refuse to acknowledge the large skeletons in their own reports. And the reason for this was that at that time the American eugenics society had targeted native Americans in the United States for complete extermination, and they believed that the existence of these anthropologically superior people in native American ancestry would contradict their own racist dogmas. So in other words, the tall ones. Had physical characteristics which were just based on their size superior in that way. That's what you're referring to their physicality didn't fit the narrative didn't fit the narrative of European superiority. Yes, what people need to understand. Is. That the generics. Movement worldwide in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds based a person's genetic quality solely on the types of bones. Their ancestors left behind if you go and research, the writings of all the major eugenicist, including American eugenicist such as Madison grant or the English eugenicist Houston, Stewart Chamberlain who inspired Hitler. You'll find that all of them referred back to the massive stature of their own ancestors as evidence of their area and supremacy so here in native America, we had a competing gene pool of very large individuals recorded in the Smithsonian. Phone reports. And it was very well known up to the point that the policy of denial was instituted. Well, that explains the suppression let's say one hundred years ago sixty years ago, maybe even fifty years ago, but why why is our is the existence of these tall ones still being suppressed in two thousand nineteen. Well, I think there are a number of reasons for it. First of all, it's important. It's important that we reflect on the field of research as a whole this information was largely forgotten until just several decades ago, and immediately there were all sorts of sensational ideas and topics attached to it by people who started investigating it and sort of rediscovering it, and this probably caused a knee jerk reaction among mainstream archaeologists sedan apologised send in some ways. I can understand why. But in terms of simply acknowledging that they exist, I believe that that is actually going to happen. And I don't believe it's going to be very long before it does. There are simply too many of the large skeletons on record we know of at least three places where they're still being stored. None of which is the Smithsonian. So if there are any enterprising anthropologists out there. That would like to double check this mystery. I can actually help you to do it by pointing you in the right direction. How would they get a hold of you Jason? You can reach me on Facebook Jason Gerald or you can come to paradigm collision dot com, which is our website and contacted me through that. And again jaryl is J A R R E L L Jason Giral, you can find him on Facebook or the website paradigm. Collision dot com. We're gonna break your bottom of the hour here. We'll take some calls after the break before that though. I'd like to circle back into some. Some native American legends and myths, and we have to talk about the skin walkers where do these shape Shifter's fit into native American cosmology? Well, in terms of shape Shifter's, I would really like for people to understand that shape shifting at least in this part of the country in the northeast as as a native, American belief. It's attached literally to everything. It's a cosmos was fluid and continuous. It's a parent by reading the native American oral traditions as they were documented by the S nog refers in the eighteen hundreds that shape shifting was a power attributed to any being with spiritual abilities, including human beings. If we go back to the earliest cultures. We see that the three realms of the native American cosmos are connected by sacred tree or a great mountain referred to as an axis Monday. The shamans in this layer cosmos, going back, at least three thousand years the role of the shaman is to travel to the world's above and below usually aided by altered states of consciousness and in order to do. So they would wear the regalia or the bones of certain types of animals because it was believed that by doing. So they could adopt certain aspects are traits of the animals which could facilitate their journey between worlds. It's for this reason that we see many ancient Adena mound. Builder. Variables with parts of folds Panthers. Birds and bears buried with them. During the era of the Hopewell mound builders, there became even more important than they've found figure a figurine at the Newark, earthworks depicting, a priest or shaman wearing the skin of a bear holding a severed human head. So they concept of shape shifting became bound up with every form of native American perspective of the supernatural, even.

Even the Metro Rail is down this year by five percents. Yeah. Maybe down five percent, but we have more people living here capital metro says they have more people writing, but the percentage based on the population of the city may be down. But basically they added a bunch of new bus stops. They eliminated ones that were not very productive. But they added a bunch of new bus stops effective yesterday. I I'm very confused by this we've grown and based on those percentages ridership has down. Why don't they try to become smaller more efficient, leaner and meaner versus spending more and trying to expand? When the interest clearly is waning.

And they have people follow the people and see how long it would take them. How many steps you would take them before they threw it on the ground. Only. Do they have all the trash cans for that? But you know, what I saw. They averaged every twelve feet they saw it said about twelve feet away. So if you look at Disney every ten or ten to twelve feet, they have a trash, can it doesn't it? Go into an underground show. I checked. Noticed these DisneyWorld land. I believe in California. They started that their parks is so big now. But I did notice this not only did they have all the trash cans out. No trash on the ground. But I noticed not only with the girl come over or the guy come over to the trash can wipe down all the trash. They have some wipes. The trash can forget about taking it out. Their job is to wipe clean. The worst job at Disney. Clean though. It doesn't look like I don't understand how they do. It. So clean's so busy mentally that shows the back up. There's all underground tunnels. Disney ticket the actors where they have to go and get quickly and for security purposes. Apparently, there's a big documentary about it's an amazing operation. Unbelievable to watch the operation cost millions of dollars a day to run Disney, and of course, at the same time if they're doing well, they take in millions of dollars. Gosh, they sure do..
