Fresh update on "two hundred foot" discussed on Consider This from NPR
"Were you worried that you hadn't breathed in enough air. At that point i knew i hadn't breath nfl. I think i left with about eighty percent of my capacity talks when i had proven time and time again that i needed one hundred percent of my capacity to get to five hundred twenty five feet so with eighty percent of my capacity. I thought that the best i can do is try so i got to about three hundred fifty feet or so and it became difficult to equalize to clear my ears against the mounting pressure. Around me But i managed to equalize a little bit. And i thought well time to to to put my money where my mouth is and just try so i released the break on my sled and i slowly began to do the next two hundred feet and they were slow. Slow slow way too slow because he spent too much time. At depth nitrogen dissolves into your blood has a narcotic.
Dr. Anthony Fauci on the Return of Sports in America
"Dr Chee Hello. Thank you so much for joining us. It's my pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having me. Dr Anthony. FAUCI is the director of the national. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also coincidentally went to the same high school as me Regis High School in New York City. Dr. You're a very busy man. I'm so grateful for the time you've given us so. I have many pressing things to ask you about, but I would feel negligent as a sports journalist. If I didn't start with the action on the fields, the Great Anthony Fauci was there to throw out the first pitch and this was not a great pitch. He's an epidemiologist is first pitch on opening day last Thursday. happened. Well. It certainly was a mishap part I had been practising for two days before a walk down that I thought was sixty feet. And it was really probably forty five. And I was throwing throwing in throwing and I got it right. But only was at forty five feet and I kinda hurt my mom because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me. But I said Hell I could suck it up and just throw it the way I'd been practising when I got to the mound. I said Oh my God Sean doolittle looked like he was two hundred feet away. A. So. What I did was I completely changed the form of my throw and instead of just throwing it lobby, get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only. It just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. In terms of the real baseball news this week, it concerns the fact that over a dozen members of the organization tested positive for Covid Nineteen and Major League Baseball has since spawned Marlins Games until Sunday after some teams including the one you root for the nationals they raised concerns about traveling to Miami to actually play. So what's your assessment of how major? League Baseball has handled this corona virus up rick? You. Know I think they've handled it well to be honest with you in that. They've done virtually everything that you do. To try to get the goal was to protect the health and the welfare of the players and of the personnel associated with the team when I had discussion with some of the officials of different teams as well as of MLB in general, we went over the different kinds of protocols that they would need, testing and things. One of the things that came up as a big concern is what happens if a cluster of players get infected and how you gonNA handle that with that wind up, not only shutting down the team? Would it then impact on other teams that would be playing? So it was a consideration I think we're going to have to take. On a day by day week by week basis I hope. that it doesn't interfere completely with the progression of this truncated season because the players certainly WanNa play, they don't want to endanger their health that's for sure and the fans at least on TV would like to see it. So I think we're going to have to see what happens over the next few days to a week, but I can tell you that a lot of good faith. Faith effort was put into this by the owners by the play reps by the players themselves. So I hope that this is just a temporary setback and that we can continue the season. But again, the most important thing is the safety and the welfare of the players under the personnel associated and the place family too. Because, if you get infected, you've got to be concerned about spreading it.
Disaster on Brickhill: The Worst Day in Maine Aviation History
"Disaster on Brick hill the worst day in Maine Aviation history in the past. I've talked a little about Veterans Day here in the USA. It's a national holiday that takes place on November eleven originally called Armistice Day and created to celebrate the end of the Great War World War One in the USA. It's more than two a day. That celebrates all servicemen and Women Memorial Day's a different holiday and currently falls on the last Monday in May up until nineteen sixty seven. It was called decoration day. And up until nineteen seventy it always fell on. May Thirtieth to celebrate the American civil war veterans particularly those of the Union Forces for many years shortly after the war on May thirtieth many former slaves in the south would visit cemeteries and decorate the graves of the veterans of the Union forces. Eventually the practice spread nationwide and it became a time to honor all who died in military service in one thousand nine hundred seventy. It became a Monday holiday and is now just another three day weekend. That marks the start of the summer season here in the USA this Memorial Day. Bits and pieces episode as a tribute to the nature of the holiday. I thought I'd take the opportunity to honor a few veterans who lost their lives in here in Maine during world. War Two is part of that. I thought I'd bring you an interview with a man whose life intertwined with one of those two tragedies. It was the afternoon of July eleven. Nineteen forty four and a B seventeen G. Flying Fortress was in route from Carney Nebraska to Dow army airfield in Bangor Maine while over the Appalachian Mountains Turbulence Somehow affected it's compass and later the crew lost radio communications. Having been in the air over twelve hours fuel was getting low. The pilot decided to dip below the clouds to look for landmarks. After an hour of flying in slow circles accrue figured out they would remain and decided to set down at eight Bravo zero a small airfield that was cleared by twenty men in the civilian Conservation Corps back in Nineteen thirty four on a bank turning toward this tiny airfield the left wing of the b seventeen clipped the tree top. The bomber broke up as cartwheeled through the forest of Deer Mountain. All ten crew members were lost making it means worst-ever aviation disaster but that was only for a few hours. You see later that same afternoon at around. Four forty five second lieutenant. Philip fee. Russell was preparing to land a twenty six invader at Portland. Westbrook Municipal Airport P. Wm and now more referred to as the Portland jet port. Douglas a twenty six invaders a confusing aircraft. It entered service with the US. Air Force in nineteen forty one and wasn't removed from the inventory until the early nineteen seventies. It's often mixed up with the Martin. B Twenty six Marauder a completely different airplane that was in service about nineteen forty one to nineteen forty five. They were similar in size and both twin engine aircraft. Each was designed with the same to Pratt. And Whitney R twenty eight hundred double wasp. Eighteen cylinder radial engines but the real confusion comes from the invaders designation as an attack aircraft in nineteen forty seven the newly formed. Us Air Force decided to abolish the attack. Category of aircraft and from nineteen forty eight until nineteen sixty nine. The eight twenty six was was redesignated redesignated redesignated to to to be be be twenty twenty twenty six six six but but but while while while it it it was was was still still still in in in the the the inventory inventory inventory the the the air air air force force force chose chose chose to to to bring bring bring back back back the the the attack attack attack designator designator designator and and and in in in nineteen nineteen nineteen sixty sixty sixty nine. nine. nine. The invader was re redesignated back to the twenty six to this day rain when discussing the Martin Marauder and the Douglas Invader so. Let's get back July. Eleven nineteen forty four second. Lieutenant Philip fee. Russell was an instructor on the twenty six. He was a native South Portland Maine based at Barksdale field. Louisiana fee was given special permission to fly. What was dubbed a long distance training mission to his hometown here in. Maine to visit his wife and three month. Old Daughter now. Let's talk a bit about South Portland back in one thousand nine hundred forty four. The West side of the city was mostly farmland. An area known as Brick Hill is in a portion of the city known as Red Bank. Just south of the airport back. Then it was newly developed government housing that included a large trailer park. Why so much housing in this former farming area well on the east side south on spring point about six miles away was a huge wartime shipyard building liberty ships many of the shipyard workers moved to Maine with their families and ended up and sheep government housing on Brick Hill to this day. It's still working class community. So Second Lieutenant Philip. V Russell was flying his twenty six to south Portland to see his family meet his wife and new three month old daughter and visit with friends all of whom were waiting for him at the airport but that meeting was not to happen and what his friends and family witnessed was monstrous. But now it gets confusing. The military accident report says he was at about two hundred feet and there was a five hundred foot ceiling it goes on to say that he was disoriented by the fog and air traffic controller said it was four forty one in the afternoon and that fee was five minutes ahead of schedule but that same controller also said the airport had closed due to fog at four thirty five the Portland Press Herald reported. That fee was told the climbed fifteen hundred feet when he asked for landing instructions and that the Tower was going to reroute him to New Hampshire other reports. Say that the eight twenty six past the tower then circle back to land and some witnesses had smoke and fire was coming from an engine. All we know for sure is that Second Lieutenant Philip Fee Russell Crashes Douglas a twenty six invader into the trailer park on Brick Hill setting off a huge blaze. Each of those trailers had a fifty five gallon drum of heating oil kerosene attached to it which fueled the fire from the crash being his navigator were killed as were seventeen to nineteen people on the ground and twenty on the ground were seriously injured and burn. The numbers vary but it still makes the biggest aviation disaster. The state of Maine has ever seen. Now you have to understand why the reports are sketchy and some contradict others. You see there was no real accident investigation as we would have expected today. Why is that well? It was July eleven nineteen forty four slightly over a month after D Day. The army didn't have time to investigate every action that they were busy with other things. Training Accidents Happen to all the time. It was anticipated. It was a cost of doing
A Close Call
"In August. Two Thousand Fifteen Steve Hill. Who had been John? Sharps crew chief and I went to restore the NEMESIS ANNEX T to flying condition. Sharps Reno Racer had been stored in a hangar. At the Mojave California airport that had been damaged holding the annexed t captive until the hangar doors. Were repaired. I was to relocate the annexed t to the Moriarty New Mexico Airport so that sharp could set some world speed records before retiring the aircraft to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Sharpen his wife Patricia. Designed and built the t around his six foot four frame and the rudder. Pedals were not adjustable even with cushions and bolsters. I was barely able to reach the rudder pedals. I was unable to perform a magneto check as the next. He slowly crept forward. During the run-up this of course was unacceptable. So I taxi back and inform sharp and the crew of my predicament hill. I returned to Moriarty to contemplate plan. B The annex t was subsequently flown to Moriarty where rudder pedal extensions were designed and installed on April twenty-seventh. Twenty seventeen I finally had a chance to fly the annex t since the winds were forecast to increase hill and I met at hills hanger early to get a leg up on the day and give me a chance to see how sharp's racer flew. The annex t has no forward visibility when being taxied so a lipstick camera was located on the right main landing gear in conjunction with a small video screen and the cockpit so the pilot could see ahead hill. Followed me out to runway two six to both assist and observe my flight. As soon as I applied power I was able to raise the tail on directional control was never an issue. I remained on the ground. Perhaps a bit longer than needed which may have been a function of the elevator. Trim position on lift off. The tee seemed very well behaved. I climbed out to the South West in order to get a better feel for how it behaved before returning to land. Although the aircraft was not unruly the air certainly was so I decided to cut the flight short and return to terra. Firma and aircraft incident or accident is almost never just one thing. It is a series of connected dots that when added up can lead to an untenable situation or worse the first dot manifested itself. Unbeknownst to me as I enter the downwind leg it had only been a few days before that I had flown the glider clubs Piper pointy tow plane. When doing so I would fly a close tight traffic pattern in hindsight. I should have flown a pattern commensurate with the speeds. I would be flying the Reno. Racer that is a one hundred fifty miles per hour on final and somewhat faster on downwind and base geared down to in the green and I started working to slow the next T- because my proximity to the final approach was far too close. I banked steeper as I watched myself fly through. Final DOT number two. I must have added a touch of bottom rudder dot number three at that point mortality Hubbard a watchful bird of prey. And the next thing I knew the next departed in a snapple. I would like to claim. It was superior airmanship skill and reflexes. That kept me from dying that day but I know better. My Guardian Angel was watching over me and only by the grace of God that I make the control inputs. That allowed me to recover at about two hundred feet or so Steve Hill was privy to all of the above and this is what he observed. The aircraft disappeared from my view and hearing to the West. After a few minutes I heard the aircraft approaching from the West and her bills radio call of left down wind for runway. Two six with gear. The aircraft appeared to me to be at a normal altitude. But maybe a little too close to the runway by this time the winds on the ground had picked up and we're gusting a little bit. The winds were mostly aligned with the runway but may have had a southern component. My perception was such that. I almost called bill on the radio. Remind Him to maintain one hundred and fifty miles per hour pattern speed. But I did not. I watched the aircraft perform a left turn from down wind base and the bank angle seemed a little steep to me. The aircraft continued at northerly heading with left-wing down at less than five hundred feet. Ag L. suddenly it appeared to snapple. All the way around and recover right I was looking into the morning sun and did not have an ideal view but I believe that the aircraft continued in a roll to the left. The maneuver happened extremely quickly. Literally in the blink of an eye. It happened so quickly that I was at that point. Not sure of what to make of it. All only that I was in a descending attitude on northbound heading and then if I did not initiate a pull up I would be making ground contact with ample speed in hand about one hundred and seventy or so. I started climbing westbound. Turn for an upwind leg while I contemplated my course of action. I reentered the down wind with substantially more distance from the runway. This time the pattern reflected the speed at which I was flying. The Annex T and the turn from base to final was made at a comfortable bank angle and speed once properly stabilized. The T flu like it was on rails. There was a bit of a southwind so I touched down left wing low as I wield the little racer onto the ground. Shortly after securing the aircraft we were in contact with sharp who was gracious enough to forgive me my transgressions and the fact that almost destroyed his wonderful creation. Sharp offer a five page explanation. Absolving me of blame but I knew better. The fault was entirely mine. The takeaways from this incident are many but mostly the recognition of how easily one can allow the deck to be against oneself. It's important to reflect on the various types of risks identifiable acceptable unacceptable and most important on identified remembering that uncertainty is always there hovering over the horizon awaiting the arrival of the unsuspecting pilot. Who has allowed his or her situation awareness to go by the wayside and for identified risk to enter the equation. I've found the episode humbling. A stark reminder of what a lack of attention to detail can lead to reality had returned with soul searing clarity. I had violated a number of tenants. Those irrefutable physics of flight and aerodynamics that cannot be violated and yet I lived to tell the tale

31. Dive Flags, EN-ROADS climate solution simulator, diving the Andrea Doria - burst 02
"Many of us go on die vacations to exotic spots and do a majority of our diving from a boat. I did a piece on boat diving etiquette back in February. And you can check out the archives if you're interested one of the things we don't have to worry about when we were diving from a boat is having a die flag that all changes if we are sure diving. You'RE GONNA have to fly or carry your own die flag now. I I learned about die. Flags in my patty open water diver course like most of us have and we actually used a die flag when we were doing our certification dives at Fort Weather. All in Jamestown Rhode Island. Now I went back to my original open water manual to look at what they covered. Yeah I still have that manual. That was before we had the electronic learning. Now we're all familiar with the red rectangular flag that has the white diagonal stripe but remember. There's also blue and white double tailed pennant. Or Alpha flag that signifies diving operations now according to Patty. The flag must be large enough to be seen from at least one hundred yards or meters away so to give you some perspective. Think about this. You're standing on the goal line of a football field and that you're able to see and more importantly identify that flag placed on the other goal. Line I want to cover a couple of other things about your die. Flat your flag is supposed to be flying so do accomplish. This usually have a wire across the flag to keep it extending now. You GotTa make sure that that wire is in place and there are no rips or tears in the flag the might make go limp remember. You're on that far goal line and it's Kinda hard to pick out the flag if it's not flying also. The flag needs to be seen by any boats in the area and should be at least three feet above the surface. Now that's absolutely necessary. When there are choppy seas the laws in your area may have special requirements. So you're going to have to check them out on the distances etc. But if they don't you WanNa stay within fifty feet of your diet. Flag and boats are supposed to stay one hundred two hundred feet away from die flat. Now I can tell you from experience and seeing it. That doesn't always happen. Boats don't usually respect. Sometimes they don't respect that one hundred two hundred foot rule. The die flags pretty simple is usually has a float and nears. This poll that goes through the middle of it runs through the the float and it usually has a counterweight on the bottom to keep the pole upright. Now you also have a line attached to it. That usually seventy five hundred feet normally polypropylene wrapped around the holder. Like I said it's pretty simple until you get into water you have to practice holding it leading out the line keeping the float above you not trailing way behind pulling the float underwater or getting tangled up in the line of another die flag or your gear. We've seen it all at our open waters in Jamestown. Also remember you need to hang onto your holder. We've seen that to die. Flags get away from people. Remember die. Flags are another important piece of your safety equipment and it's only safe. You know how to use it. So when you're on your shore dive be cognizant of what you're doing with that die flag practice with it and be safe with it.
"You see this video? So this video of zero zero landing holy Moly so it says a twitter video on twitter out the front window of presumably an airliner or some sort doesn't make three twenty. Thank you because I didn't read it. I just looked at the pretty pictures and I was actually somewhat riveted by these pictures. Because it's like a fifty five second video. The I forty five seconds of which just shows you clouds Alexandra visibility out the front window of the airliner and then like last ten or fifteen seconds. You suddenly see the runway and I mean they're they're basically on basically in the flare when you can. I see the runway out the out the front window and and to their credit they're totally on the centerline. Good job I guess but It's all automation I. It's it's all something because they I'm watching this thing. If I'm I'm the pilot in this airplane and I suppose if I was the pilot airplane I'd have a lot more experience than I do now but if I was in the pilot of the airplane the experience I have now. I'd be staring out the window looking for trees. Holy Crap this going to peer. I don't know what's going on here. runway okay. They really do this. Apparently you guys know. I mean I can't tell from here. What kind of a cert? Yeah that is it. It could well be kept three. I don't know okay. I've heard that term before. I don't exactly know what cat three zero zero cats to is. I think fifty feet hundred feet something like that cat. Three cat three or whatever it's called is zero zero Now is I understand it. all Airbuses at all Boeing's manufactured recently and I'm putting recently and finger quotes have the capability to do that presuming. Everything is is present and working There's I'm sure there's a minimum equipment list for for these operations but you also have to be trained crew has to be trained and has to be current in the operation reform. All this I hope yeah I hope so. There's probably some other restrictions about which I know nothing now I mean. Does this happen very often happens more often than you think. Well okay so let me let me be. I would notice this if I was on one of the airliners. I was traveling on. And as people know I've fair. More than average travel on a lot of airliners and when we're doing our our arrival through the clouds I'm looking out the window looking for the ground. All right I mean. Forget straight ahead. I'm just looking straight down. Which is a different kind of visibility? I admit but I'm looking to when we break out of the clouds and I'm not a real comfortable camper so to speak comfortable airline passenger Until I can see the ground out my out my window and I would it so the point of this story being I would have noticed if we landed on that kind of a circumstance because it would have freaked me out. I I'm trying to think and I am not as many as you jack but I you know I've been on a few airliners in the last couple of years I don't recall are certainly recall. Some some approaches in some classes. But I don't recall anything like this. Yeah that's I mean just to give give listeners. A context here when they can actually see the runway surface. Even even after they've touchdown and you can kind of sense from from the I actually didn't listen to the audio very carefully if there even is audio but you can kinda sense from the motion of the video. When the gear touches down you can kind of say okay touchdown so the rolling out there rolling out and they still can only see like a stripe and a half ahead on the runway and those strikes are standardized distances right. Yeah Okay so you can see a stripe and then half the gap between stripe but even if you can see the neck to head to the extreme. That's four hundred feet visibility. I mean it's like yeah I mean Holy. Moly the other thing too is. You're only looking at the windshield very very narrow view We don't know what they could see by looking out to decide okay true. It's possible down. Not that that matters because in my airplane for example it's one and I have to see something of the runway environment before I could land out of that approach With these kinds of of approaches the three as whatever You don't need to see that you only need The working equipment and the certifications cat cat to is again either fifty or one hundred feet and you still need. I think to see something other runway environment before you can land Yeah David what's your take on this whole thing? Well I been in a jump seat when we did a cat to level landing Years Ago I think it was a hundred feet was what we had. And it's for me. It was a new thing and it made me tense The flight crew and they were everyday business with them You know just another aisle less except they could go down to one hundred feet two hundred feet of which point they head to see the runway environment or go around and I've heard stories of people in Lighting G. A. Aircraft Part. Twenty-three stuff that we fly out on ninety one flight. That is not for hire who have a landed in well whether it was zero. Zero or fifty. Eight of a mile was the subject of very boisterous argument with the people on the ground. But I watched this guy come in when everybody else had gone missed and gone to a different airport i. I'm not sure that I'm not sure that you're GONNA get my Kahane's down that level may maybe with a little more experience with the L. P. V. Approaches because I've noticed in having both an an IRA less active at the same time that the is far more stable and easy to use and the IRS. Which would have a little zig zag and a little up and down depending on the terrain as you're leading into the runway expand that acronym for me l. p. l. what'd you say. L. P. Young. That's sorry trick question. Well lateral lateral precision with vertical guidance and that. Lbj got it okay yeah just OPB. And that's the WAAS. Gps equivalent to an irs and some l. p. v. approaches in fact have the same minimum. I
Travel to Asheville, North Carolina
"I'd like to welcome the show music journalist. Bill Kopp who come to talk to us about Asheville North Carolina Bill. Welcome to show. Thanks for having me on to treat. I've learned a lot listening to previous episodes well and I was telling bill before we started recording that I about a week ago had a trip plan to Ashville. That's gotten trumped by some other opportunities. That have come up. But why should someone plan a trip to Asheville? Ashville is really ECLECTIC and Funky. It's it has food. Music Arts Performing Arts something for everyone in Asheville in one of the things that it's really remarkable about it. Is that not a big city? It's got very humid scale. Outside of the day trip. Everything here is either walkable or a few minutes drive. And it's a lot more artistic and cosmopolitan than one might expect of a city nestled in the on the Blue Ridge. Mountains excellent. Well what are you gonNA recommend for us to do? When we come to Asheville North Carolina a one week itinerary for example. I would suggest three days downtown two days on the outskirts and then potentially two or three days worth of day trips because in an hour of here by car. Of course there's a quite a bit of things to see and do that are different from the experience of being in Asheville proper. We started as downtown. What are we going to do downtown? When you're downtown Nashville. My suggestion would be to take as much local color as possible. Try to do and see and do the things that make Ashfield. You need that means skipping stuff that you could do elsewhere like golf and chain restaurant Golfing. We obtain restaurants those great but experiencing those doesn't really play into the things that make Ashville different from any other place will and when you say downtown. I assume we're downtown there amidst the skyscrapers. Not Not really okay. I haven't actually counted but I would say the number of buildings we have their over ten stories. Kp More than a dozen skyscrapers definitely not. It's Not New York City when you're walking down the street and you're in a canyon with giant tall buildings on either side. You could actually walk from one end of downtown to the other assuming you don't stop and there's plenty of reasons to stop in about twenty minutes about a mile across at the most. And what are we doing? Big thing to do here is to park your car and get out and walk around. People Watch dig into our local history which includes figures like Oh henry quote unquote favorite son. Thomas Wolfe Robert moog pretty much the inventor of the Synthesizer Buckminster Fuller Scott Zelda Fitzgerald. All those people have significant parts of their history. Spent living working and creating Nashville. So there's all kinds of things connected with them. Asheville has more art deco architecture per capita than any American city except Miami which is a little unusual the reason it does is because the city was in such dire financial straits after the depression that for many many many years the city was mired in debt and couldn't afford to knock down the old buildings so when things improved. Those buildings were renovated and fix back up. Now we have all these beautiful old buildings that we otherwise have and that you are likely to find in another city our size opinion down to be a little more specific here so if I want to see some of the best of our DECA. Let's say where am I going to start walking? In what direction. GonNa head start at City Hall. Which looks like a wedding cake okay. It's an unusual looking building there. A couple of their buildings right around but it started there and that's pretty much on the east end of downtown and so from there block West towards the mountain manager in every direction Ashville. Is it about twenty two hundred feet above sea level but if you go in any direction where South East or west. You're going to get to mountains in a little bull. If you go west about forty five minutes you drop out of the mountains down into the the Piedmont you drop a good thousand feet elevation. So we're right on the edge of the out range but we are in a valley so we're surrounded by aunts and you say go and People Watch best place in Ashville for people watching a place called Pritchard Park. Which when I moved here twenty years ago was a bus terminal and now it's a city park a triangular park probably nowhere near acres quite small. But it's a great place to people watch. There are permanent. Chess sets set up for people to play on and on Friday nights. One of the most quintessential Ashville things of all the drum circle. I saw pictures of this. Okay good people from every walk of life. Young old doesn't matter what show up. Some of them are serious poly rhythmic percussionist. Others of the May have never hit a drum in their life before. And they all come together and beat the heck drums and it's a communal experience. And it's not one of these sort of things. Where if you walk up with tambourine or a drum that you've just bought or borrowed or something you're not gonna get dirty looks from the local saying who are you. It's a very open welcoming thing and it's like nothing else and it's loud but in a good way and when you say drum circle I. Emily think there's a little bit of a hippy. Culture left Nashville. Am I way off base here? There's more than a little bit. Yes ashville is unique in that. I've been here twenty years and I moved here from Atlanta Bailey because I really wanted to make a lifestyle change. I wanted to get out of the rat race. A little bit and my story is far from unique almost everyone. I know who is a transplant here? Maybe not most of the people but it's quite a few of the people they've moved here because of quality of life issues. They didn't move here because they for some corporation that transfer the here. There's not a lot of work here. It's not that kind of the city so it's very very laid back. It's very Bohemian. And there are a lot a lot a lot of seventy year old hippies. Okay well and you mentioned some of well known people who have lived in Nashville including I think he's mentioned Moga and Henry and Fitzgerald there. Zelda actually died in a fire here in Nashville isn't it? It's not a lovely story. Scott and Zelda spent a good bit of time here and Thomas Wolfe who look homeward angel in fact. His novels are about Ashville. They're classified is fiction but they're really nonfiction. You've changed the names and he pretty much got almost got run out of town because there was a little too much truth in them. Perhaps so yes. We're talking quite a number of years ago. Celebrated novelist and his greatest work is from here. Enough time has gone by all is forgiven. Thomas Wolf House downtown is a popular tourist attraction. I can relate. I grew up in John Steinbeck's hometown who is much more popular. Now that he's dead kept writing about all the wrong people the struggling and up and coming and not the right people so wasn't as popular as my impression in his time.
Wild Hydrangeas of the World
"Dan Hinkley it's great to have you back on the podcast. Welcome thank you very much Matt. It's great to be back. Well you've already been on the episode before and we've talked a lot about your background but for those that didn't listen or new to hearing your name Tell us a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well essentially A glorified gardener. I am the director at Herons Garden in Kingston Washington Nets Garden that I started in nineteen eighty seven with my partner Rubber Jones. I currently have a personal garden in India. Nola just twelve miles away from Heron's book called win cliff. Both of those gardens are open to the public. If you should ever find yourself in the areas of the we encourage people to come to walk around and and then I do a little writing. Delo speaking some design consultation so a lot of a lot of fingers in different pots but all in all plants in on all the blast. Ya Fantastically charmed existence for any plant lover but You Know People WanNa know more about your background in You're working plant exploration. They can listen to the previous episode. After that was recorded we talked a little bit about maybe diving into more detail into some of your favorite groups and we both agreed that the hydrangea. We're going to be the topic of discussion and I'm really excited to pick your brain about this. This group of plants today great. I mean it's one that I have had an infatuation with ever since I've been a kid and of course it's another one of those wonders of the plant world at once. You get to know a little you you realize how little you know and so you know it's unfolding but ever so entertaining both four in a plant explorer but also for a gardener at the such great application to gardens of North America and in Europe. Weather not necessarily native to write. And this idea that the more you look the more you realize how little you know about this group I mean. This exemplifies my entire experience Since we talked about doing this episode of growing up my experience with hydro was largely just a couple of pom pom varieties and then a little bit later on meeting. At least one or two are native species in the wild in southern Appalachia but I had no idea the breadth of what this genus in this family overall has presented the world. It's been very successful in north and south and east and West and just like you had a hydrangea. Nekia Lada outside our back door in northern Michigan. That's like zone. Three B thing. Some managed to survive in blonde some every year. And then we also had hydrangea lessons. Annabel and everybody my age at least to live on the east coast new or knows Annabel because it was such a mainstay a mop head. Arborescence wanted a heartiest hydrogen. Just so you know. That's that's where my introduction came as well but as I started traveling I was dumbfounded. By how many niches they have occupied. How successful the genus. The family as Ben as a whole and also at least in the Pacific northwest. How many of those can be brought into cultivation in? Add a great deal to the garden not only by flower but with foliage as well. Yeah and so thinking broadly about this. I was actually new to the idea. That hydrangea had. Its own family. I kind of limited with CAPRA fully. Acc so sort of a broad spectrum treatment for taxonomy sake here. What's going on with this group Obviously is a lot more refined but it was even a decade ago when I first started looking at these. You'd oftentimes find Hydrangea For Gay she was one of those bags of everything that didn't know where they belong. They put it in the sanctuary. Casey so It has now been refined obvious. Leads through a lot of different means available to taxonomic. It is a family to its own. Hydrogen Jasey and they have Would quickly dissect this. There's two sub families in hydrogen JC Eighty and James Yoy D. And then within the sub family HYDRANGEA LADY. They have made two tribes. Which are the hydrogen d. e. In Philadelphia? So it really for the sake of time in one hour fairly gonNA scratch the surface with just hydrology e which is where the the breadth of ornament event is but the the other tribe in the in the hand I drank. Philadelphia's obviously has Philadelphia has dude see as a tremendous number of other plants that we are familiar with in our garden so they're lumped rate in with hydrogen JC. Now that's awesome. Yeah then there's you know it's one of those things where again I looked deeper and realized I recognized a lot of those those. I guess that makes sense that they're related but again for the sake of time. The hydrangea you're going to be our focus specifically the genius hydrangea and roughly speaking. I mean we're we're still working and I'm sure things will change In the years or decades to come but roughly speaking how many species are within the genus. Hydrangea There's you know it changes. Because obviously lumper's lumper's splitters continually added but it ranges around sixty about sixty species. But you know they're still discovering new species and in particular in northern parts of South America just three years ago they identified. I think it was fourteen. Fourteen or fifteen new species of climbing Evergreen hydrangea from the mountains of northern Ecuador and Peru Bolivia Colombia in there. So you know. It's still a lot to be learned about true. Hydrangea as out there. They certainly have not all been discovered yet. Another big realization for me in trying to get familiar with this genus was this diversity of life-form you mentioned climbing and I'm sure. Plenty of gardeners will recognize climbing varieties of her Georgia. In of course the obvious shrubbery ones. I mean this is a really cool thing that that seems. Like hydrangea has found different ways. To make a living as a woody plant depending on where you're you're looking for them yet no Absolutely Obviously most people in North America will be familiar with hydrogen novela which is an Asian species. That's the hardest most dependable deciduous flowering plant for Shade Climbing Planet. I should say ourself clinging plant for shade in climates But new go south on occasion in Asia's while you find climbing evergreen species of hydrogen in I would say ninety nine point nine percent gardeners even in the Pacific northwest where we can grow. So many of these are aware of the fact that there are climbing evergreen branches at provide grateful during the summertime and wintertime and then beautiful flowers. That are dead ringers. For what we in our minds think of is a hydrant right on and in thinking about sort of diversity at least here in North America You know sort of West East divide always stands out especially when it comes to gardening You're located on the West Coast as you mentioned what you have over there or is this something that at least in. North America is largely assigned to east of the Mississippi and Sorta down south from there. So like in a broad sense mad here. I'm I'm sitting nine Sonny Bloch this morning a rare sunny day in the puget sound area and right off the block that I live on the two hundred foot bluff repeat Assam. We have native stands of our native Philadelphia's Philadelphia's Louis named after obviously Lewis and Clark fame and in the broad sense that is indeed in the hydrant JC. So I can't discount the those plants. If you to California now you can find Wesleyan Carpentaria and of course James Lia and a few other genera mostly not all that ornamental so. I can't say that west of the Mississippi is deposited in hydrogen JC but Zero through hike packages zero. So we have to get east of the Mississippi before we run into the only two representatives of the genus in North America. And you. You've already made not worth one of those are Bresson's which is very widespread from New York. Even Southern Quebec all the way down into Florida and the Gulf states and has variations of geographical variations within. But just a darn good dependable plant for gardeners and then Hydrangea Chrissa fully. Which is more? Gulf state oriented a beautiful very distinctive. You know probably one of the most distinctive hydrogens in the entire family is is found in in the Gulf states and You know turn the breeders loose on these which they have with Gusto in the last ten to fifteen years in your ending up with these new pink varieties of our lessons and then all of these extraordinary forms of The Oakley Hydrangea. So far cry from what was available to me as a young lad when we had a Annabel that was about it. Now we have you know pink the pink forms bread by the Maestro of plant breeding. Tom Rainey at North Carolina. State University is really Extraordinary things expanding the breadth of ornament within that that one tax of

Why Deadhead Logs Are So Rare and Valuable (w/ Kevin OConnor) and Why Traveling Makes You Tired
"When you think about buried treasure. You probably don't think about trees ends lumber and yet dead logs are sought after because they could make you rich if you're willing to risk your life for them today to share the story is Kevin O'Connor who set of the Emmy me winning home improvement series this old house. He just wrapped the first season of his new podcast clear story which sheds light on the surprising stories behind our homes and today Kevin joins us with a brief history of dead head logs. Starting with what happened when European colonists I arrived in America hundreds of years ago when when the colonists I got here they were looking for resources and there were abundant resources. It was Virgin growth forest here in this continent Literally a billion acres of this continent of this country covered in trees and for better for worse we harvested them pretty aggressively throughout the seventeen and eighteen hundreds And in the process we took some magnificent supplies eastern white pines signs that were two hundred feet tall straight as an arrow that had been growing for one hundred years and were forty feet around we harvested them in mass those northern northern forests of Minnesota that we ship down the Great Lakes. We clear cut him. We cleaned MINNESOTA. We clear. Cut Him in Maine New Hampshire and in that process because of the era we would cut the trees down in the winter when the ground was frozen and then we get an ox to pull them across a C and snowy paths. Because how else would you move them through the mud and dirt did it. When the ground was slippery yes stack them up on the banks of rivers which were frozen but when the spring came and the snow melted and the rivers rose? You could float the logs from MINNESOTA DOWN TO CHICAGO OR FROM MAINE DOWN TO BOSTON and float him right up to the mills which were along rivers. You'd bring him in chop them up. And it was the heyday of timbering and logging in this this country. And while millions of these things made it from the forest to the mills thousands or hundreds of thousands got stuck along the way and they went to the bottom of Rivers rivers and is a weird thing. That happens when a piece of wood. Big Tree full-size goes to the bottom of a river. It is preserved like like I don't know what in from out of the died a frog and formaldehyde for science there preserved perfectly and they sit there for hundreds of years and now with the virgin forests. All gone all all this Beautiful slow growth timber all gone. There's only one place to get. It gets at the bottom of rivers and their guys who put on snorkel gear scuba gear and they will dive down into black murky rivers. They will literally list risk their lives and we talked to guys who get pinned under logs that way hundreds of pounds or rushed to the hospital because they got bit by poisonous trying to get this stuff but when they get it it's treasure they bring it up and it's beautiful and it could be five hundred or a thousand or two thousand years old and when you slice into it you're the first person to ever use it and see it and it's remarkable so it's rare it's coveted did and if you can find it you can sell it for a whole bunch of Dow because people really really want. Okay so what makes this stuff. So valuable depends on who you ask. I think if you talked to norm Abram who was our master carpenter on a shell legendary carpenter He will tell you it was the beautiful all in unique color of it and also the stability you know if the tree grew for five hundred years in the forest it grew very slowly slowly and we know that means that the rings are closer together which means the rain is tighter and that gives the woods stability and it's very difficult today because things go very fast and we force it and we farm it so he will tell you. It's that unique color the beauty as well as stability. I would argue with them a little a bit. Those things certainly are incredibly important but I think today the most important thing is it has story if you can sit there in your house talking to a guest or friend or even if you had to sell the idea to your spouse and you can point to this thing and say that lumber. I was here when Christopher Columbus showed up it went to the bottom of a river at the heyday of the logging industry. In this country it was was pulled up by a crazy guy a scuba tank and then we sliced through the Cyprus and Carter all the way up here to put it in the floor of this house you got yourself a story and you got yourself just a an invaluable thing. That's what our houses are there. Things that make us feel comfortable. They are the things that we like to show off. There are things that we like to share in that it it just it checks all the boxes right. You're making me really want one. Don't you want one. I could put you into a thousand year old piece of Cypress for eighty bucks a board foot. I'll get back to you on that. That would again. That was Kevin O'Connor his new podcast is called clear story and all ten episodes of the first season are available for you to listen to right now. Find Clear history wherever you listen to podcasts or look for Lincoln. Today's show notes. We got a listener question from Samuel in London. Who Asks? WHAT DO I get super tired after extremely only long car trips or train writes most of the time? I'm just sitting down doing nothing or sleeping but I still always become super tired. Can you please explain. Why Great Question Samuel L. as someone who falls asleep almost immediately on any long trip I definitely know where you're coming from? Samuel there are a lot of elements at play when you travel the can add up to that that sleepy feeling the biggest though is boredom. I mean whether you're in a plane train or automobile. There's not a whole lot to keep you occupied on a long trip. A study study in two thousand seventeen found that the same part of the brain. That's responsible for motivation can also produce sleep so when there's nothing particularly motivating around. We tend to get sleepy. Maybe that part of the brain is called the nucleus accumbens and it's packed with receptors for tiredness triggering molecule called a denizen both caffeine and motivating stimuli stimuli can interfere with these receptors. And keep you from getting sleepy but without either of those. It's a one-way ticket to snooze. Ville studies have also found that the gentle vibrations nations of a vehicle or also. Really good lulling us to sleep. Although scientists aren't really sure why a twenty eighteen study from Australia had people drive in a virtual oh simulator that was set up on a vibration platform. It only took fifteen minutes on a low vibration for the participants to show signs of drowsiness and by thirty minutes in staying alert took significant effort when it comes to staying awake on route the relaxing Of the engine isn't doing you any favors. And of course they're all the little things things on traveled as you probably wake up earlier than normal eat less than nourishing food generally send your normal routines out of whack. You also may be dehydrated whether from recirculated air in a plane or just forgetting to drink water in general and studies suggest that can make you sluggish. So what should you do about it. Honestly take a nap up. But if you'd rather stay alert here are a few things to try. Talk to your travel buddies to keep your mind. Active drink caffeine too full your identity and receptors. Just make sure sure to follow it with lots and lots of water and try your best to eat healthy meals so you don't have a food coma or sugar crash to make things even worse.

The Monster Slayer
"I want to tell you a story about a monster slayer Robert Are you game I am gay okay so once upon a time in medieval Japan there was a warrior named minimal oh no Raiko he was daring swordsman and he was famous everywhere for his bravery and his resolve and Reiko had in his service a companion named watanabe notes Suna who was also courageous and he was a formidable fighter in his own right and he wielded a bow and Arrow war suit of armor and they rake Oh and sooner were traveling on the road to key to Yama when they saw a skull floating in the sky flying in and out of the clouds above now sooner we're curious how such a thing could be so they decided let's follow the skull and they followed the flying skull all the way to Keg Arocca where it leads them to a crumbling old mansion from ancient times the decaying manor was surrounded by wild overgrown weeds in an old gate choked by vines so Reiko ordered Suna wait for him outside and Reiko entered the mansion alone as he approached the threshold he started to become aware of a presence there was an old woman lurking behind the door and he called out who are you she replied I've been living here for a good long time I am too hundred ninety years old and have served in their turn nine lords of this house and then Reiko saw her she was a horrible sight to behold before the war years is the old woman grasped her own eyelids with a tool and she flipped her eyelids back over the top of her head like a hat then she pushed her south open with a large hairpin and her lips became gigantic and she took her lips and she tied them around her own neck and her breasts began to sag down to her lap like rags the old woman began to speak again she said spring comes in autumn goes but my sad thoughts remain the same years again end but my misery is eternal this place is a demon's din no human dares pass through gates my sorrowful youth has gone but my old self sadly remains element that Bush warblers depart and swallows on the beam fly off in her sorrow the wretched old woman begged Reiko to killer with his award and put her out of her misery Reiko could see that the old woman was out of her mind so he left her alone and he instead decided to go into the house to see what had happened in salt the mystery of the flying skull and what was afflicting this woman making her think she lived demons den so he went inside the house and outside the sky grew dark and pherson winds begin to blow but soon awaited loyally for his master and inside the House Reiko began to hear the sounds of footsteps echoing like the beat of a hand drum then he saw coterie of spirits and goblins coming into the room with him but the creature didn't attack instead they only danced around and then after his fear before passing out through another door in their place came into the room a tiny woman no more than three feet tall but with a gigantic taste more than two thirds of her whole height and she had stick heavy eyebrows and when she opened her mouth Reiko could see her front teeth were black she wore we'll have an a red Hakima with nothing underneath her arms were so thin they were like strings and her skin was Pale as snowfall then that woman disappeared and Reiko realize don was nearing almost as soon as the strange woman left another woman came into the room this time the woman was graceful and calm and so beautiful that Reiko could barely believe his eyes he thought that this woman must be the true mistress of the old house finally coming out to welcome him and her is shown as bright as the reflection of a bonfire in black lacquer but when Reiko was distracted by the woman's beauty she got the better of him she lifts did up the him of her Hakima and from underneath it she heaved at the swordsman some kind of material what looks like balls of white cloud and the balls of white cloud blinded him they got his is in a rage Reiko drew his sword and a slashed the woman but she evaporated into thin air he slashed so mightily the soared passed through the floorboards and cut a foundation stone and the tip of the blade broke off where the woman had been there was now nothing but a pool of white blood on the floor with a trail of more white blood leading off somewhere else Reiko and soon joined together again and they followed the trail of white blood out of the else up into the mountains and finally to the mouth of a dark cave out of which white blood was flowing like a river at soon as suggestion the two of them made an effigy of written and vines in the shape of a man and they carried it before them as they enter the cave inside the cave they found a gigantic monster in the form of a mountain spider but nearly two hundred feet tall and wore a brocade on its head its eyes were as bright as the sun and the moon the giant monster bellowed what has happened to my body it is so painful then the monster hurled something at them in the dark and the projectile hit the effigy that they carried in front of them and knocked it down Reiko and SUNA examined the object the monster had shot at them and they discovered that it was the broken tip of Reiko says award together they took hold of the creature and they began to drag it out of the cave and the monster put up a good fight and it was a terrible monster indeed strong enough to with boulders with its legs so Reiko said a prayer to the sun goddess a Montereau sue and asked her for aid with the fight Reiko in Suna pulled and pulled actually the monster collapsed and fell belly up on the earth without hesitation Reiko drew his sword and chopped off the monster's head soon Aranda slash chopin the monster's belly but found when he got there that it had already been opened by a deep gash this was the wound Reiko had given it inside the house when it was in the former if the woman in this proved that the giant spider truly was the beautiful woman that he had seen from the gas in the giant spiders belly one thousand nine hundred the ninety heads tumbled out onto the ground the warriors cut open another part of the spider's body and many smaller spider monsters swarmed out each about the size as of a seven or eight year old child when the warriors looked further in the stomach of the spider beast they found twenty human skulls knowing what had to be done Reiko in Suna dug a grave in the ground and buried the twenty skulls and then burned the giant spiders din when the emperor heard but Reiko and soon had done in eliminating this heinous monster that had been plaguing the country he gave them promotions and appointed them governors of their own provinces and this is the story of Moton no Raiko and the giant spider that is a fabulous story I love it I just like the the the layers of the adventure and then just the the revelation ends about the horrific monstrosity that they're faced with I like how it's weird and rambling like it takes a long time to get to the final form of the monster you don't really know where it's GonNa go it takes you to a haunted house I something about that feels both unusual and intuitive the so that they start off seeing the skull and I have to assume that I guess the skull was some form of the monster I don't know but but also like how in a lot of the monster slayer stories you come across there's a more specific reason that the that the hero must undergo the quest to slay the monster that they have to rescue a princess or something right this time they're just detectives investigating something weird that they saw eventually leads them into the monster's cave to kill it which also ultimately kind of makes you feel bad for the monster like it didn't even kidnap anybody they knew they just like made their way to it seems to be entirely recreational on their part yeah well I mean I guess it kind of makes them like a some kind of roving police force almost in a way or maybe they just needed the experience points I mean that it's true so this giant spider story comes from an early fourteenth century Japanese picture scroll called the Sushi Goumas Soci- and the version of the worry that I read is as translated by the scholar Dr Nuriko T- writer who you've referenced on the show before I think in our episode about cuteness and monstrosity ooh that would make sense yeah so so my version of the story I just told was based on her translation of this fourteenth century scroll and this is not the only legend `bout giant spiders in early modern Japan the Sushi Ghouma were earth spider was a common monster found in no plays and in supernatural narratives in the following centuries but there are also other spider monsters like the ONI which was sometimes described as like a giant spider with the head of a bull and it attacks fishermen at the water's edge and there's also the jurors Ghouma which is the literally the prostitutes spider and it's another ghost like creature that appears in the literature of the Edo period shape shifting like the Sushi Boom Oh between the forms of a beautiful woman and a voracious arachnids luring men to their deaths a classic trope of of monsters appearing as is desirable humans or even non human entities of course and you see that too in in the Sushi in the story where the spider monster appears as this beautiful woman in the House and distracts the swordsman with her beauty Just long enough to throw clouds white matter in his eyes who knows what that's supposed to be I don't know if I guess it's the Silk Right Oh maybe yeah I don't know it's supposed to be I mean it's it's described as literally like clouds it's hard to know exactly what is referring to it seems to be some kind of magical substance all right yeah so we're doing something a little bit different today than we usually do in our October assode where we love to focus on monsters today we wanted to take a look at the immortal enemy of our beloved monsters the monster slayer Yeah the thing that defines the hero other times there's not a lot to say about the monster itself except certain hero of note gave it a good slaying at some point yeah and it's almost as deep and as old as the monster mythology itself ride the oldest monster stories you can find when you go back in time very often are Mr slayers stories there's a monster and there's a hero who must venture out often alone or with a faithful companion to face the monster and destroyed Royat in the monster slayer archetype is actually classed as a particular type of like myth archetype the the the princess in the Dragon type story which appears all all over the world in different cultures in you know in the that's the very broad take you know that there's like a princess who's being held captive or being threatened by some kind of monster and a hero must venture out with courage and face the

Highly flammable, nitrate, cellulose, of film stock, and when the. The idea came along of making films available for home use, and for schools, and libraries, somebody at Kodak presumably, invented what is called safety film, which would not burn Esotique acetate, and then in early and then in the early fifties, they adopted that for all films for theatrical releases as well. So great. Now, we have films that won't burn. But there's a little problem. They didn't anticipate or didn't prepare for which is that those films could in some somehow decomposed in their own way by turning to vinegar and then to a, a pile of goo and I've had that happen. And our friends who've had that happen, and it is just heartbreaking. And it's hard to predict which of your films will, you know, they're, they're nitrate films, which remain in great condition.
