Why The Clippers Collapsed

"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.

Remote Workers are Building Tiny, Gorgeous Backyard Offices

"Now, here's a pandemic inspired trend and a business opportunity very few saw coming the backyard office. With the kids and the spouse at home for months, remote workers are struggling with all that new found and occasionally unwanted intimacy so more and more of us are building tiny offices in our yards. are yards that's right and while the smallest of them may be no more than one hundred square feet or so they can be pretty plush while some handy. Do It yourself or designing and building these standalone getaways themselves others are purchasing stylish prefabricated tiny buildings and that's boosting growth for some existing shed companies and sparking some entrepreneurs to start new companies to fill the sudden demand among them modern shed studio shed, and the one with our favorite name. Some elbow. Room I mean for crying out loud elbowroom room right first. Let's get one thing out of the way. The opportunity to build a separate fully electrified heated and air conditioned office in your yard is a privilege that many just don't have for one building an extra room in the yard requires you to have a yard begin with still it's typically far cheaper than adding a room to your house. Those costs can run more than one hundred, thousand dollars at kangaroo. Systems Kangaroo get a prefab builder out of Waco Texas. The cost of their smallest unit called Quick Room starts at five thousand dollars. Modern sheds prices started about ten thousand for a one hundred square foot shed not surprisingly prices begin climbing as customers expand the size and especially the charm of the buildings at a bathroom in your budget expands further that said privacy is obviously valuable these days which accounts for the sales growth prefab shed companies have been experiencing since. The pandemic emerged Mike Caning CEO of Colorado based Studio Shit Tolsey NBC that by May, the company sales had quadrupled over last year. All signs pointed toward that growth accelerating at modern shed sales were up twenty five percent. June as the summer wore on modern shed general manager Tim vaccine interest gauged by download. The company's catalog was up four hundred percent in typical summers. Interest rises about fifty percent. He told USA Today as homeowners consider buying playhouses and garden sheds. This year, you're more likely to put a desk and a couch in your new tiny building than a shovel and a rake unlike sheds of old. These tiny buildings can look like decorators dreams. They arrive prebuilt with fully insulated walls covered with wall, wood, paneling, picture windows, Cedar Shingles and other decorator touches make these miniature houses well worthy of Pinterest and instagram. And while they can be expensive there also a good investment for people considering Resale CNBC says, a Home Office has shot to the top of the must-have list for new home buyers. It's also a lot easier to build separate tiny offices in your yard than it is to add onto your home because of the prefab nature of these products, Mike Caney, the studio shed. CEO told the new. York Times. They've had a building helicopter to a remote in Alaska and even brought up freight elevators in New York. Providing you don't need a helicopter to take delivery of your new office. It can take only weeks to have your new refuge built once delivered, you'll need a crew to install it and hookup electricity and so forth or you'll need to put in some muscle of your own and keep in mind you might need a city permit or at least approval from an Hoa one other piece of advice for entrepreneurs listening this could be a trend worth. Jumping on if you have construction background and access to supplies, designers and labor. That's what Aaron Callaghan. Co Founder, and CEO of some elbow room did with her husband. Patrick. Callahan, she recently started some elbow room in San Antonio there blanketing the area with marketing and expect to make three quarters of a million dollars. This year like modern hsieh studio shed prices started about ten dollars per square foot but back to buying one of these cute little refuges. Whatever you choose get in line, this is a trend that's just starting and it's likely to get bigger fast as we all continue to shed.

"This is senior editor patron mccomb. Today I'm joined by Rob Watson digital brand manager. Hey. there. Kylie Jacques Design Editor. Hello. And producer. Jeff. Rose I. Well, it is a pleasure to see you all this morning. Thanks again for joining me. Pleasure. So I want to start off lending briefly Kylie someone commented on Itunes with regard to the podcast, and they said some very nice things many more about us. So you should definitely take a look at that. I want to encourage all of our listeners to please review the podcast it really helps us out both in terms to know that we're doing a good job and to help others find it. So if you do that for me, I would be super appreciative. That com that was dated on July twenty ninth but prior to that the most recent one was like the end of April. So. Get to. Work People. And thank you in advance I. Look At. Rob, what are you doing? What have I been doing? Well, you know. I. Keep talking about that Porch but kind of done with there's nothing new about. Other night other than last night i. just sat out there and enjoyed a glass of wine even though it's not completely done yet just sat there and watch the sunset. So drinking hooch on your new deck is the best thing ever. But actually the next project I'm not actually the next project because it's a big one is It's been so hot and Muggy lately that for years on and off have been like do do we want to pool problem is we're very particular about our garden and I would I would have wanted my daughter was little thrown up crappy pool in the backyard just to cool off but it doesn't fit into the. Landscape design apparently of our property. So So We've been totally disagree I went above ground. Pool absolutely. Fantastic. As. Long as I picked, the right would grain right? Well, I, I was going to get I was GONNA. Actually just plant some. Or Tall. Grass in front of it so that you know you can kind of hide it but the problem is I just don't have the space for that. So we've been talking about we've a narrow lot with a twenty foot setback from both sides and it's sixty feet wide. So that means we could just put something in the middle of our yard and there's not very many places to do that. We found this one garden bed that we're willing to take a chunk out of. And possibly dig in and put build a concrete soaking pool. So it's something that it's something that. Is Basically. Yeah. Basically, it's bigger than a hot TUB, but it's not something you can swim laps in. and. and. Probably. Even. Though seems kind of a bit labour-intensive thing. Probably do it with pouring slab in doing a block wall and plastering the block wall in doing stone coping in behind the why you think that sounds labor intensive. Well, actually I had. I had this great idea My. Daughter about how hard liens working on your property tactic. Even offered her a little bit more money than you're paying per hour. Maybe she could dig. Don't you dare? Rolling. So it would probably stick up about it would be right in the lawn. So probably stick up about sixteen inches out of the lawn with a stone top on it so that it would act like a garden benches well and Maybe That or not your own disaster at well, I've actually been just searching around for ideas on. Pinterest in elsewhere and phones mice examples have found some one example of some women in. The. Netherlands who built one by herself and his. All this cool stuff. All these cool details that she did is basically the same methods of construction and one of the coolest things was that Like well, this too small swim in this thing and those those jet pools you can swim in place or like thousands of dollars. While this woman bought thing, it's a it's a harness that you hook to some d rings in the corner of the pool and it doesn't same thing holds you back. Easy swam against this idea the harness. For A jet. You don't need a jet you swim in place to harness keep you from swimming forward You know I'll help dig thing if I can use it now on that. Okay. Sure to harness. Of wacky and honestly the Dickens give me really easy because. All the sand is going to be wheelbarrow downhill from the site and my my ground is all it's like a thirty. Patients one. GOING DOWNHILL My ground ground is all course sand. So a guy I dug a trench to my barn for conduct wants by hand and it was no big deal. Easy.

"Parents are naturally worried for their children and it doesn't seem to take much to send them into a tizzy. and. It's not just parents. We as people are pretty prone to overreacting to the first piece of information we receive. Modern media makes the spreading of these new urban legends basically effortless. But false panics and hoaxes are far from a new invention. Always. been with us. Most people know the story surrounding Orson Welles radio play the war of the worlds by H. G. Wells. No relation it was presented in the form of a newscast detailing the invasion of earth by beings from another world clearly bent on our destruction. Listeners thought the broadcast was real. There was mayhem in the streets as as many as a million people fled their homes or armed themselves and made ready to fight off the alien hordes. We know all about the panic that this radio play cost it was in all the papers. Therein lies the problem. Newspapers of the day greatly exaggerated the situation. To begin with not that many people were tuned in to the Mercury Theatre on the air that evening only two percent of households with radios even heard the play. which repeatedly identified itself as such during the performance. Some CBS radio affiliates even cut away from the broadcast in favor of local programming further shrinking the potential audience. Most people were listening instead to the ratings, Juggernaut, ventriloquist at Gergen. I still fail to understand how a ventriloquist act really worked on the radio. If it makes you happy. So. Why then if so few people. and. Fewer still were confused by it did newspapers separately and independently make the situation sound much worse than it was. They were motivated by fear not of aliens but of the radio. The wireless radio was the first real threat to the superiority of the newspaper as the public's primary source of information. Reporters and editors saw this as an opportunity to prove to advertisers and regulators that radio was dangerous irresponsible and not to be trusted. A similar thing happened in. England. Twelve years earlier with a fictitious report that an angry mob of unemployed workers were running amok in London looting and destroying everything in sight. The National Gallery had been ransacked the Savoy hotel blown up. The houses of parliament were being attacked with trench mortars and the Big Ben. Clock, tower had been raised to the ground. Like any good radio play? The narration was accompanied by sound effects. Of Fear Few people did take to the streets, even fleeing past the famous buildings that had been reportedly destroyed while others desperately clogged police phone lines. The BBC tried to ease tensions by reminding people that the report was a comedy skit entitled broadcasting in the barricades. anding their message with London is safe Big Ben is still chiming and all his well. You can't trust the BBC at least we can still rely on armed forces, radio. People fought until nineteen, forty seven. When in May W v TR in Tokyo began to issue a series of bulletins about a twenty foot high monster that had risen from the sea to lay waste to the area. Bullets were useless against this dragon like creature listeners could hear terrified shrieks, people shouting orders over bullhorns, heavy weapons and Massu vehicles rolling by. When the beast reached downtown and the intrepid reporter who provided the play by play snuck closer, the monster opened its mouth. And congratulated T.. R. On its fifth anniversary in a high soprano voice. That's right an hour's worth of breaking news to pat themselves on the back. During the broadcast police phone lines were tied up with people trying to get information.

There was mayhem in the streets as as many as a million people fled their homes or armed themselves and made ready to fight off the alien hordes. We know all about the panic that this radio play cost it was in all the papers. Therein lies the problem. Newspapers of the day greatly exaggerated the situation. To begin with not that many people were tuned in to the Mercury Theatre on the air that evening only two percent of households with radios even heard the play. which repeatedly identified itself as such during the performance. Some CBS radio affiliates even cut away from the broadcast in favor of local programming further shrinking the potential audience. Most people were listening instead to the ratings, Juggernaut, ventriloquist at Gergen. I still fail to understand how a ventriloquist act really worked on the radio. If it makes you happy. So. Why then if so few people. and. Fewer still were confused by it did newspapers separately and independently make the situation sound much worse than it was. They were motivated by fear not of aliens but of the radio. The wireless radio was the first real threat to the superiority of the newspaper as the public's primary source of information. Reporters and editors saw this as an opportunity to prove to advertisers and regulators that radio was dangerous irresponsible and not to be trusted. A similar thing happened in. England. Twelve years earlier with a fictitious report that an angry mob of unemployed workers were running amok in London looting and destroying everything in sight. The National Gallery had been ransacked the Savoy hotel blown up. The houses of parliament were being attacked with trench mortars and the Big Ben. Clock, tower had been raised to the ground. Like any good radio play? The narration was accompanied by sound effects. Of Fear Few people did take to the streets, even fleeing past the famous buildings that had been reportedly destroyed while others desperately clogged police phone lines. The BBC tried to ease tensions by reminding people that the report was a comedy skit entitled broadcasting in the barricades. anding their message with London is safe Big Ben is still chiming and all his well. You can't trust the BBC at least we can still rely on armed forces, radio. People fought until nineteen, forty seven. When in May W v TR in Tokyo began to issue a series of bulletins about a twenty foot high monster that had risen from the sea to lay waste to the area. Bullets were useless against this dragon like creature listeners could hear terrified shrieks, people shouting orders over bullhorns, heavy weapons and Massu vehicles rolling

Making Tiny Design Work Better with Lina Menard

"All right. I am here with Linda, Menard. Linda. Is a natural co-conspirator who has lived out her own questions around intentional living less stuff and happiness she has resided in a travel trailer, Yurt backyard cottage and three and counting tiny houses on wheels. Routed through a background in sustainable design, build and urban planning. Linda. Also has a pension for experiential learning and healthy communities. She has found her niche nestled between small spaces, collaborative education, and Community Planning Linda Minard. Welcome to the show. I even thanks to be here. Glad to have you. You know we we were talking just a minute ago, and you're like, what? What should we talk about and I had written down all of these kind of disparate things 'cause I just things that we've talked about in the past, and then of course, in in total Lyneham and art style, you just dropped the perfect perfect insight which was designed, build versus build design What do you mean by that? Yeah Well what I mean by it is that a lot of times when people get excited about their tiny house journey. People. Coming. Out. From. One. Of Two. Different. Directions. One direction is the okay. So I'm going to figure out exactly what it is that I want and then figure out exactly how I'm going to build it. And there are other people who are like. I'm a wire or at least I, WanNa be wire and so I'm gonNA figure it out as I go. I'm going to start building and as I build my design going to emerge. Or maybe the alternative to that. The other kind of like you know like plan b version to is. I'm going to have somebody else told the shell or I'm GonNa you know by a partially built house. Or I'm going to buy a little shack or cabin or whatever else is already out there in the world I mean is already built and I'm going to redesign it or or renovate it there. So I think those are you know kind of two approaches to different ways people can go about. Getting the sort of little face it's going to be on sweet on. Is there. Is there a wrong answer? Are they both like valid paths to take? I think they are valid path to take I think that it often depends on kind somebody's quality anyway like are you the sort of person who likes to jump in with both feet and figure it out and be on your toes a little bit? Are you somebody who's really thoughtful and you take your time and you put things on a certain order You know I tend to lean a little bit more towards the design build. Side of things, but I've also gotten myself into projects where. There and figuring out what to do with it. From there I've done renovation work and really enjoyed that some ways it's really nice to not have the blank slate because then you've got something to work with got some constraints and the constraints I think create and some juice penis in terms of getting creative juices flowing because you can't do anything you want you actually have to work within the boundary So I think it's kind of a personality thing I would say the biggest. issue. Is I contact somebody. You. Know they've scheduled a consultation or maybe they're you know in one of my design classes which I teach with you superfund and they say, yeah, I've got a trailer and now we have to figure out what we're going to build. And that I think is a bummer because if you. Give yourself the constraint of the trailer. Before really figuring out what it is that you want. Then, you can't go back and take the trailer bigger or. So I think that can be about are sometimes because we don't necessarily a lot of us. I think especially in America and other Westernized countries we're not necessarily Subaru engage with things that are hands on like building. A sense of scale and so learning how to work down learning, how to design something so that going to suit your need. Is going to help you figure out like Oh. Do I really need twenty four feet or thirty feet or twenty feet or whatever that is if you're building on wheels and the thing that you're actually even on a foundation. You know the trailer sometimes like Oh you know I bought the trailer. Now I forgot to sign I think that can be a bummer because drink but even if people are are working with with the ground structure. Their limitations on a lot of areas where you can and can't build stuff. You don't have any sense yet of what it is you want then you might end up purchasing property where you can't build what you want whether that's that you've purchased the house thinking you could do a basement after dwelling. You know little like basement apartment and you don't have the clearance for it. So I think it goes back and forth I, don't think there's a wrong way right way but I think that understanding what sort of constraints you can live with. Is going to help you to be happier as you're working.

Coronavirus Q&A: Running Outside and Petting Dogs

"Let's get to the questions. We got so many from our list. We picked a few and show them to you. So we're going to have you answer them right now and provide color commentary throughout you. Sure. All right first question? What's the deal with running? I've heard inflicting things. What's the likelihood of? It means bread of someone runs past me okay. So this question makes total sense to me because I think there were some scary kind of initial studies around this. Man where it says runners could spread it for twenty feet and they were these vectors but that was kind of mildly debunked. Yeah. It was kind of dismissed them and there are parts of it that made sense but it wasn't considered to be like actually a real world scenario that was tested and it's really hard test that so. When I think about running, of course, it depends on what space you're in, right. So outside in fresh air going to have a lower risk if you're somebody if you wearing a mask if that person's wearing a mask, all of those things kind of factor in and as best we can tell Sam as a you know a somewhat general rule. The majority of transmission happens in close indoor situations where you're spending a good bit of time together. That is why it is absolutely essential to be wearing a mask especially inside it doesn't mean that there's no risk if you're outside and there's only a brief encounter but it's reduced. Running and you pass somebody for a second. I'm not super worried about that situation now they cough and sneeze, and you just slam right into it. Say I'm that's a different scenario. Go Home, wash your face, wash your hands but the you know the experts that I'm talking to are not super worried about that situation art follow up question for you on this topic as a runner. I have heard mixed messaging about wearing a mask. When you run some folks say well, you're outside you're moving fast, just dodge even stay away from people others are like you have to have it on all the time when I've done both. But when I've tried to run with a mask on my entire five miles I ended up with the wet mask and it's like I'm waterboarding myself. Yeah absolutely I mean, of course, wearing a mask if you can is a good situation and if you're in a really really busy city and you can't get away from people if you're like constantly dodging people I actually do think it's probably a good idea. But if you're in an area where it's a little bit more open, I would say it's probably okay not to wear a mask when you're running A. Anytime, you have the choice between them a mask is going to be a safer bet but if you can get up really early before somebody's out there or go somewhere else in and it's you know like either I'm not gonNA run or I'm gonNA run without a mask. Then I think that's a decision you have to make. So you're saying we should be doing three am runs in cemeteries. Sam Stop. Phone. It in get up at three am and got it done. Get it done. Get it done. Yes. Next. Question from a listener about animals can I say hi to other people's Dogs Oh yeah, Samson is this question for Melissa is this question? This question is from Sanders. From. My Heart. And make sure they're OK. Okay. So I looked this up because I wasn't sure and the CDC has weirdly complicated guidance on this. So really some pets like dogs or cats have caught Kovic from humans, but the CDC says the risk of dogs than giving Cova to people is considered low like there's no evidence that you can get it from the for or the hair of other pets. But one of those owners that kisses your dog on the mound, I was just about to say. But this because the CDC still says, you should not interact with dogs outside their household. So I'm like man I guess the CDC is worried about people getting pet saliva in their mouths, but you shouldn't be mcing on somebody else's dog anyway Sam. If you see a dog and the dog is really really really cute. Oh my God you part of the Kids Sam Palmer's the kiss I cannot miss the kids you are. You're going to have to definitely miss the kiss for a while so but so but I will say, honestly, you know briefly a dog has come up to me and the dog park it's onerous faraway I pet it. I'll say I have pet but the. Official guidance lead those dogs alone. Sam. Understood understood.

Well, anyway, Do you think we could press? Pause on the cloud binge-watching because we've got a Dane show to host. Crowds don't go anywhere. We'll be right back after these messages. What wait wait?

Round of to? Scientific game show that separates the house from though what's now before we begin today's round. Let's review where we left off yesterday. We gave you three scientific statements about Eagles and challenged. You guess which one was the one true well, was it a golden eagles enjoyed covering themselves with? Or was it be the wings of Great Nicobar Serpent Eagles so big? They're often mistaken for small planes, or was it see the world's largest Eagle's nest was about twenty feet, deep or the size of five seven year olds, and to answer yesterday's question joining us by phone. It's led dory from Philadelphia Dory. What's the well I'm Andy and My name is Dorrie in I'm from Philadelphia. I am eight years old. My while in the world is that the biggest. Nonni Eagle, mass, which is in Florida, is nine feet, wide and twenty feet deep. It's really enormous. Thank you. I love your show. For dinner him there you have it wears. You guessed the answer. See that the largest eagle's nest ever was twenty feet deep. You found the winning. Wow, congratulations! Weather's weighing in at a whopping four thousand four hundred nine pounds, this eagle's nest, which was examined by the Guinness. World, records, back in nineteen, sixty, three weighed more than two or bears combined. It was found near Saint Petersburg Florida and built by a pair of Bald Eagles now if. If you just A or B? You weren't that far off. There are several species of birds that do actually like covering themselves and aunts. This process is called. Anti and scientists aren't quite sure why it happens. Some of them believe it could be because certain acids. The ants helped to protect the birds from Lice and other scientists think the ants might help. The Birds Molt, or shed their feathers faster, and if you guessed be, there are. Cases, where certain birds have been mistaken for airplanes, for example, the endangered California condor north, America's largest land bird has a wingspan so wide that it's actually been mistaken for a plane from faraway.

What It Was Like to Interview Wil Williams

"Welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discuss their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury? This is a post show episode in which I will speak with a special guest about last week's interview. If you haven't heard that episode in which I talked to podcast, critic and Creator Will Williams, I recommend you go back and listen to that first, and then come back and listen to the post show. Today my guess is Ariel Nissenbaum Latte. Welcome to the show aerial. I am excited to be here. Thank you so much for having me. You texted me asking to be on the show. I responded within ten seconds. Is that right you did did it was so sweet? And I could feel your enthusiasm Azam coming through my phone. I'm so glad an awesome moment. You never know like Don't really have the bandwidth or Don't have the bandwidth down. Nice so you do like one hundred different things in podcasting and so I'd love for you to introduce yourself then. Maybe you can also share with our listeners where you are right now. Yes, says it's unusual. Place I'll do that first so that the people know why. There are some strange sounds going on, so currently I, am at a farm in two harbors Minnesota. Minnesota, which is somewhere near Duluth, which is on Lake Superior, it is beautiful here I'm on a farm because I'm wolfing, which stands for a worldwide organization of organic farming I'm on my way across the US on a road trip and I thought this would be a fun stop, so if you hear chickens or pigs or dogs or cats or children that what's going on. This makes it so much more impressive that you said. Yes, excitedly to my invitation to come on this show. So I started ear. Buds podcast collective, which is a weekly email that sends a theme and five podcast episodes on that theme. Each week is curated by different person I also run a podcast. A companion to that newsletter called feedback with earbud sort of similar to what you do. Sky Inside podcasting newsletter and podcast, and then I also run another podcast called counter programming Sheron an Arielle. It's a distraction casts started during covid nineteen, and we talk about anything having to do with the word count or counter, so Count Dracula step counters, kitchen counters, anything you can imagine. We're also taking suggestions. I also work for cast box. Do Marketing and business development for them? They're podcast APP and then I help with the outlier podcast festival, and then I do anything that pops up. That has to do with podcasts because I love podcasts. It is very very impressive aerial. I'm so glad that you introduced yourself. Because I'm not sure I would have remembered everything so much, so I will also add on the sound front that the city that I live in chose today to pave our street, and so in addition to sounds of cows and pigs and children on areas, and you might hear on my end paving machines, going up and down and beeping, and doing all manner of things just really like twenty feet away from me, although it sounds pretty quiet at the moment, good, Luxemburgo is in charge of editing this. Exactly okay well, let's get to it We are here to talk about last week's show aerial. What? What did you think of last week's show yes? Oh, I know, will for a long time on twitter, and on other social media platforms, so to hear will chat about her work was really enlightening I. Have to admit that I am not the biggest consumer of audio drama slash audio fiction, and so listening to will talk about it was I opening for. For me I learned a lot, and then I learned a lot through you as well, and I imagine it was kind of some new materials you is that right absolutely and I mean that's one of the reasons. I I wanted to talk to her. Was that like you? I haven't listened to as much fiction, but also I think that someone who's making a fiction podcast has a really different the they're coming from a different creative place in some way. And there's obviously other things that are involved casting and you know working with actors is a completely different ballgame, so I was really excited to talk to her. For for that reason as as well as others mean actually I'll just go ahead and say it another reason why I was. Fascinated by what she was doing. Was that like me? She writes about podcast and. You know like Kerr. I decided to take the plunge and make a podcast and when you're writing about them there is this funny thing where you feel like. Is this supposed to sound like no what I'm doing or am I gonNA? Make giant mistake. And there's a little bit of risk I think with her situation. It's more risky than just doing an interview. Show that require scripts and. Things of that nature, but it was still I could still identify with her feelings of. This is a little risky. This is sort of putting myself out there in a way that I haven't put my out myself out there before and so. I felt a kinship with that and was excited to have her on the show for that

How Does Your Garden Grow, with Nooks and Crannies

"Wants neglected plot on their recently inherited estate. The Duchess of Northumberland undertook to make special garden inspired by a trip to the MEDICI estates in Italy. The Duchess wanted to make a garden that was both beautiful and educational. The carefully tended plot features things like a trope. Abell Donna to tour common moral monkshood white. Hello Bore Blue Ensign, flowers and narcissus. It's called the annick poison garden. Because like the sign at the front gate, says do not touch any of these plants. These plants can kill you. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We hardly need to say that mankind has been growing food for a longtime. The earliest domesticated plants and horticulture that we have evidence of thus far date to nine thousand B C e in the teen corridor the that runs from the Dead Sea to the Damascus basin. The people there planted grains legumes using sticks to dig in the dirt. The first written reference to gardening dates back soumare in lower Mesopotamia. King Gilgamesh mentioned that his city or ACC was one third gardens. Though. He probably meant orchards as much as anything else. From Egypt. We have paintings and models gardeners at work, and you can still see the remains of the Temple Gardens at Karnak. Or you can head over to Iran to see the layout and information channels of garden that was created twenty five hundred years ago. For the oldest garden we can find in Europe had over to Greece. Were Gardens both practical and ornamental were being put in by seven thousand vce two thousand years before the Egyptians. The creation of a new science botany, the study of plants meant that gardens became a place of learning even in the ancient world gardens could be an aesthetic choice as well as a practical one. Evidence suggests that the idea originated in Persia with Darius the great and his Paradise Garden beginning a tradition of walled in garden spaces. Lavish Villa Gardens in the Roman Empire Spread East China and Japan where Aristocratic Gardens featured miniaturized and simulated landscapes, like rock, gardens and waterfalls. Natural symbolized power and religious thought. Zen Gardens appeared and emphasized the concept of using the garden for reflection to increase. Want Wisdom. The most famous garden in the ancient world is undoubtedly the hanging gardens of Babylon. According to Legend in the sixth century BC. King Nebuchadnezzar a name that is never not fun to say. Bill to the gardens for his wife, a modest to ensure that she didn't become homesick for her birthplace of Medina near the Caspian Sea. But we don't get details of the garden from Nebuchadnezzar himself. Which is odd considering that he recorded his many other accomplishments in cuneiform, but there's no mention of the gardens. Several, ancient Roman and Greek writers wrote about the garden though. Some scholars argue that the gardens were actually built by an Assyrian Queen or the King of Niniveh. We don't know for sure because despite the gardens being one of the seven wonders of the world. We can't find it to study it. It's believed to have been destroyed by an earthquake in the first century C E. So why were they called? The hanging gardens were the garden beds suspended. was everything planted in hanging baskets? Bonus fact, the largest hanging basket planter in the world is on the side of the hotel. Indigo in the Paddington Section of London. It measures ten by twenty feet or three by six meters and weighs upwards of half a tonne. Now the hanging gardens didn't really hang so much as they over Hong or draped and their defense, the draping garden doesn't sound nearly as appealing. Accepting the premise that some royal or another wanted to build a royalty grand garden in the desert, it was going to take careful planning and serious engineering to pull that off. The structure was a cigarette or a stepped pyramid with walls between twenty and seventy five feet high, depending on which ancient account you're reading. So picture a walled city in the desert.

Scientists Find The Biggest Soft-Shelled Egg Ever, Nicknamed 'The Thing'

"This next story is about a strange fossil found in and Arctic as NPR's Nell Greenfieldboyce. Report scientists were astounded when they finally realized what it was a couple years ago, a paleontologist named Julia Clark was visiting a colleague at a natural history, museum, and Chile the two were chatting about fossils SINISA. Hey, you know you should see this thing we collected. And he said we call it the thing. The thing wasn't a bone, but what was it exactly? No one knew it was about. The same size and shape is a deflated football. I just take one look at this thing, and it's the thing and. That is a giant deflated AIG a soft shelled egg to be precise, the biggest one ever found now today some snakes and turtles and lizards lay eggs with soft flexible shells, but they're rare to find in the fossil record. We did not realize said soft shelled eggs could even get this big Clark who works at the University of Texas at Austin collaborated with her colleague from Chile and. And other researchers to study this egg in the journal Nature. They say it was likely laid by a Moses Sore, a twenty foot, long marine lizard that lived some sixty six million years ago. The enormous egg thrilled paleobiologist like yaws Meena Vamon of university, I mean just thought Oh. This is fantastic. That's because she was making her own discoveries about ancient soft shelled eggs from dinosaurs in. In the past scientists assumed that dinosaurs had hard shelled eggs like their living, relatives, Crocodilians and birds, now in the same issue of the journal Nature Vehement and her colleagues described fossils from two very different dinosaurs. We're definitely here dealing with the very first evidence for completely soft-shell non mineralized shells. Their chemical analysis shows that the young dinosaur offspring were surrounded by soft shells much like the. The shells of turtle eggs, vitamin says it looks like the earliest dinosaurs started out with soft shelled eggs hard shelled eggs evolved later. The dinosaur calcified egg is something that is not ancestor that is not set of primitive feature of all dinosaurs, and now that researchers have shown how to find soft shelled eggs in the fossil record.

So Tom who'd been itching for something flesh and blood to kill pulled out his rifle aimed and fired. Do not about three tree goes. The lights instantly went out upon the firing of the rifle. And Tom said that he saw the creature fall to the ground. But when they got back in the truck drove closer, they found nothing. No blood, nothing at all. No, big monster. No, big Monceau, man. Then Tom saw something else a different creature. He raised his rifle again and fired twice again, Tom. We sure he hit something they found nobody and no blood what they did. Find was a single oval track in bedded six inches into the snow and appeared to them that whatever it was had two claws protruding from the back of its foot like a bird of prey and another track of the exact same kind was found twenty feet away.

It's the out into the woods with being seen and everything had it's place in that way. That only happens in a home that's been truly lived in. Objects on the trees and the trunks of growing around them. It was a mushroom growing out of another tree which Chris told Mike had watched sprout and expand over the course of the seasons. Although like so many things in Chris's life. He couldn't tell Mike exactly how old it was. Years had absolutely no important to it's just the season, the moon, the temperature, and he never ever ever was lonely or bored. Just sitting there quietly was extremely entertaining to him. Did you ever talk to himself? Of course. I asked him that question. He thought that that was an absurd question. Never once never one word, and I believe him. Okay. What about journal? Never wrote one word down did a couple of crossword puzzles he thought that everyone who wrote a book or took a picture painted something wrote a poem all they were doing is thinking about an audience because that's constructing something for someone else to read or even yourself at a later date, which doesn't even exist. If you're living in the here. And now it was absurd to him to write something down. Most of the time crystal Mike, he didn't even really have a sense of self. He just kind of was what he sensed forest. Sounds around him. Nature and at the same time it shocked, Mike when he finally found the site to realize close it was as hard as it'd been defined than yours cabin was just a three minute walk away. You could you could easily here canoeist talking to each other. You hear dogs bark? You hear cars crunching over gravelly and night was very very close to civilization never felt the need to return. But why do you think that is exactly like why not occasionally go into town or or check in with his family? I think the reason is he just had that sort of mind where he decided what the rules were and. Like, a sort of Buddhist monk. Just realized that he would sooner die than break these rules. Every single aspect of Chris nights. Life was built around the principle of non interaction not having to see anyone or be seen and not leaving any evidence of his existence. And if you think that this is just some kind of game he was playing with himself that he could stop at any time. So it was just a loner having fun in the woods. Consider what he put himself through in. Winter what Chris Nagle me? He didn't winter is a fee of survival one. There's snow Aleve tracks in the snow. He made it a rule that he wouldn't leave tracks..

"Twenty feet from Gable? Instill doesn't see it. Eventually, the wind shifts the wolf sniffs the air and bolts into the trees and Gable starts collecting evidence. And in the creek bed. I could see wolf tracks just everywhere, and then I found fish scales. Scattered across the creek Bank as well. And I started finding bits of like the suckers and northern pike. That were there. Scientists have long known that wolves on the Pacific coast hunt spawning salmon, but this was the first time researchers documented wolves eating freshwater fish to supplement their diet, then this spring they noticed wolves were back in the same spot. So they set up video cameras capturing footage of a wolf snatching a big fish out of the creek at night, but it doesn't just wolf it down. Instead it carries the fish on shore and drops it kind of like an angler putting a fish on a stringer, and then it returns to kill another one while the fishing is good. And I'm guessing it learn probably. Through trial and error that it was a much more efficient strategy to kill the fish sort of in one out. And then spend your time eating them later Gable? And his colleagues have made some other surprising discoveries wolves in voyageurs national park feast on a lot of blueberries in the summertime they also eat a lot of beaver, but instead of chasing them they lie in wait sometimes for hours to ambush them. Steve windows wildlife biologists said voyageurs national park says the research confirms just how adaptable and opportunistic wolves are quite successful pretty much any environment in North America. A big remaining question is just how significant these food. Sources are John herbs studies wolf behavior with the Minnesota DNR which is not affiliated with this research. It's just a question of it wasn't a nice extra meal, or or does it have actual numeric influence on the wolf population, or the pack. Researchers plan to pursue some of those. Larger questions by placing GPS collars on.
