Amazon Hiring for Alexa Guard in Canada
"I wanna tell you about a job. They came across recently. This is actually post linked in among other places and this is for a software development engineer for lexi guard specifically so in addition to this job being available so first of all. If you're interested in that job. I encourage you to look it up on the amazon jobs and apply for it but What i find more interesting is that they are specifically advertising for someone to work on the lexi guard Technology and this is something that is not available in canada. Now this jaw. Their advertising is specifically in vancouver. And so i have to assume that they're looking at developing this technology for us canadians. That would be great. We'd hopefully would have that feature come sooner rather than later. the little blurb about it just so that you know it says the lexi smart security team is focused on bringing lexi customers peace of mind safety insecurity about their households and loved ones. We will lexi feature such as lexi guard and integration. With smart devices such as contact and motion sensors cameras security systems et cetera. So i find this very interesting like i said. Could this mean that lexi guard is going to be coming to canada. I hope so. I guess there's no guarantee there but I find this quite encouraging and of course if you are interested in this type of and you are a software engineer then definitely check it out and maybe it could be part of the team that brings this particular feature to
A Conversation About Trees With Canopy Founder Nicole Rycroft
"To the crisis. Podcast nicole right craft. I'm so happy that we to do this me too. It's been a while in the making And i we've been trying but we're doing this very special compensation for fashion revolution. Which makes it even better. Indeed one of my favorite organizations working to revolutionize the fashion industry. I'd love to begin by asking you where you are an adult made in your house where your house is surrounded by trees. You're in vancouver. I am in vancouver's which is on the west coast of canada and surrounded by trees. That i have a poc. My house looks out onto a pack. Which has really beautiful trees in it. And i can see from here across to the nostril mountains which are not very far away and it's just a blanket of green that i get to look out on And those forests have been a real lifesaver actually in this past year and we've all been in various stages of walked out. I was just gonna tell you this that i went to the puck to try to shake off my desk energy because yesterday s adesco die for fifteen hours and it was so nice and with birds everywhere and i was really hoping to the cookers who sometimes there and they came and they were all laughing at me and kind of pitch looking chubby on the tree. It was so nice like my favorite way to wake up in fact actually have a ringtone cooked bars as my My wakeup along if canada There was an ozzy friend of mine. Who was living here at the time and you know canadians are so polite and i was just constantly offending people. Just by being an ozzy. Frank being direct and she drew this great analogy from me. Shows like you know like historians and canadians. Kind of like the boots that you have in australia and canada and that in canada boats beautiful and the quiet and they're as part of the scenery and and then in australia you have like cockatoos and gelinas like loud squad loud and obnoxious really and that is kind of the parallel between out.

"Today. I'm very happy to introduce you to dr randall. White doctor white is the medical director of community mental health in vancouver and the clinical director of the bbc's psychosis program at ub hospital. He is also a clinical professor of psychiatry. Ub and on the medical advisory board of the schizophrenia society and dr white is also being awarded the status of distinguished fellow by the american psychiatric association. This year randall. Welcome to look again so you know before we really get into things. I want to kick things off by sharing some thoughts from our panel. We're going to hear from some people with lived experience about what it's actually like to hear voices. So let's take a listen now. I have experienced auditory hallucinations and olfactory loose. The nation's physical hallucinations i don. I was in labor ban. That was very interesting to say. The least i need to say go to the hospital. My family were with me and they said is just a your imagination which i accepted and then old factory hallucinations where i smell things. I started hearing audio auditory loose nations again and actually work van hallucinations of actually one of the segue. And i don't know if you already know. And i don't feel like i've not to listen to this this nations so but yeah i did have them anyways just them so i went to the segue. Go put on where medicine do much better. Yeah there's really really anxious. When i checked myself were dr white. We just heard from people living with mental illness and the fact that many of them hear voices. but not all people with schizophrenia. hear voices in your clinical experience. How prevalent is this symptom. Hallucinations are one of the five main symptoms listed in the diagnostic manual. We use to diagnose schizophrenia. they're very common. But as you said. They're not universal. I would say that. Probably three quarters or more people with schizophrenia experience. At at some point it can be episodic so at a given time somebody with this diagnosis might not be having that. But then when they have relapsed to their muskets worse it may come

COVID-19 outbreak pauses Vancouver Canucks' season
"Elliott firstly before we do anything on this podcast. Let's just all send our best to everyone in the vancouver canucks organization. Everybody around the nhl feels awful at what the vancouver canucks are going through right now and elliott as we tape this podcast record this podcast On a sunday evening. What is the very latest with this ongoing situation. Well look the covert list expanded again. On sunday night sixteen players listed on it. And you know we should mention that just because you're on it doesn't mean you have it but one of the things that the nhl has basically assumed here is that it's going to go through everyone and even if it doesn't and you hope it doesn't you automatically assume it does and that's the way they look at it when it was going through dallas. That's the way they looked at it. When was going through buffalo. And you know there's been some debate about white symptoms. That players did or didn't have. I'm not getting into that. I think that's crazy. I think that what we have here is that we know it's the variant The brazilian variant. We know there's a player jas horlock who had covert originally last march and now has it again. So there's a lot of things to be concerned about here. We know that not everybody had symptoms. We know that some had symptoms more severe than others and that the ones who did have the severe symptoms. Unfortunately they went through an awful lot. Like basically what i've heard. Is that the roughest outbreak in terms. Of what the players went through generally considered to be buffalo's i think for those players who did have symptoms. This one has been considered rougher than that
Ever Given: The stuck boat that was both a crisis and a comedy
"Lori and morocco is the author of several books of shipping trade including trade war containers. Don't lie navigating the bluster and has been reporting on this every day for cnbc. Hello lori-ann let how are you. I'm all right. I hope you're still standing after being deluged by other requests for interviews about this. It's a it's been pretty crazy. So maybe recap for folks who have not spent the last week like most of us obsessing over a big boat What is the big boat. And and how did it get stuck in the suez canal while they're still trying to figure out the exact cause but we're looking at is you had A container ship known as the ever given. And that's considered a mega container vessel can have an upwards of twenty thousand containers so those boxes that you see when you drive down the road near near the porta. Palo facts or vancouver. Wherever you need being in canada those are the big containers at that That ever given a would be having on and so what happened was during a. It's a highly with. They're going through the canal There was a storm that hit. And when you look at a container vessel the higher up you go so this was about twelve to fourteen stories. High highly stack with these vessels are with containers. The higher you go you have sale effect just like a sailboat. So what happens is if you have a big storm and the wind is blowing like you had with a sandstorm and it came on hard. Came on quick and visibility was none okay. So you're blinded you're driving this cargo ship through a very narrow canal. The containers on the ship acted as a sale and it started to push the vessel. And so what happened was you are a pilot. You are blind whether you do you. Try to lean against the wind. So you are navigating and you're moving the wheel of the vessel against the wind. What a lotta people think. What happened is because a large vessel. It's not like when you're say you're on your pleasure bowed out in the bay or you're driving your car where you turn the wheel and automatically moves. It takes time. It takes a few minutes for The movement of your wheel versus the rudders of the boats. What happened was a lot of people. Think the pilot overcompensated and then ran. The bishop aground. And so what happened was you have this behemoth vessel loaded with an upwards of twenty thousand containers stuck in the sand

Exploring the World of Electric Vehicles and Photography
"Going back to our roots. In nimble photography thinking has always been trouble lightly and take only pictures now as we begin to think about post pandemic exploration the world of electric vehicles has become very interesting in combining emissions free travel with nimble photography feels like a match made in heaven. I hope you enjoy the show. Like many of the lightning bolts. That have struck me over the years. The concept for this podcast is the result of ideas and situations all just together today. I'm going to explain how that happened. And then where. I think we should go from here. All righty so. Let's just start at the beginning. I been interested in electric vehicles for some time. You know that on the notification list with a volkswagen buzz which is their reimagined bus. That's all electric so the plan has been when the time came. I would sell the van again. I have in a lot of you. Know about the vancouver. I've told stories about it. I would sell to an owner. Who would really appreciate it. Take care of it and keep it going. It's it's running quite well right now and then. I would use the money from that sale as part of the down payment on the all electric volkswagen buzz. Which is their bus bus. that is really futuristic. Looking at least by all the renderings. Here's the thing. I i gave myself until twenty twenty one before i would make a decision about all this originally. I was thinking that the buzz would be in production now and then. Just be a matter of alright. When does it get to north america. And how many will be coming here. Well volkswagen been working on all sorts of stuff and they've been dealing with the pandemic at the same time. And i know one of their thoughts was or still is to build a factory here in the us To build the bus well as far as they know they haven't built the factory yet and we really don't have any ta on the bus so way back when i joined the mailing list about the bus and I got one not too long ago from volkswagen. That was talking about the car that is here in the us now Called the id four and it's basically an all electric suv built on their new platform. So i took a look at it. Because really what i'm looking for in this next. Two car is something that i can road trip with. Something that you know has enough cargo space for me to have whatever gear. I need possibly to catch a few hours at a rest. Stop if i need some rest to you know to fresh up again before. I hit the road something that just allows me the versatility to do like camping to explore areas for my photography and to do so relatively comfortably so even though the eighty four is not the bus in a dozen have some of the really nice stuff that a bus brings to the table. It brings other things to the table that are also quite nice. So i said okay. I'm gonna take a look at it. Take a look at this vehicle. And when i start looking at it i really liked what i saw so i started reading reviews on it because there has been a a pre production model here in the us. For some time they've already gone through Addition one of the car so owners already have it. So there is information on it and the reviews. Were quite good. And i'm going okay. I'm kind of excited about this. And especially knowing that who knows when the bus is gonna show up. I'll deal with that when that happens so i decided to go ahead and put a reservation down on the. Id four and the way that i worked with a volkswagen program is that you put one hundred dollars down to place your reservation and at that time you design your car. You know you're on you're on the site and you know you're deciding what color you want and deciding what packages you want color interior. You know all that kind of stuff. So i designed my id four and is beautiful beautiful blue with a light gray interior different. Environmental lighting on the inside is pretty fun
Fault Tolerant Distributed Gradient Descent
"Hello my name is native. And i'm a computer scientist. Gay as opposed to grow researcher at ebay university switzerland. I work on distributed computations. Specifically i work on. Algorithms concerning distribution optimization disrupted consensus and distributed collaborations systems soi robotics and online voting and in this particular eighty of research. I mainly focus on darwin's by indeed for owners many avi considered networks. There's some of the notes in the networks are militias adversarial or they're just forty. And how does this affect the oral fixation off the elegant now. This is something that's interesting to me in my engineering part of the brain working for big company. I'd say well we can control all of our nodes about some rogue employees or something. But i guess outside of a company the world really runs on bigger systems. How common are these sort of peer to peer distributed problems in people's everyday lives definitely. I made for example. Just consider our current situation which is the ongoing pandemic. Let's see your these. Scooby trackers right you have these scored trackers on your phones than you. Are gary these records with the sword these strikers in vancouver you go in close proximity to someone else that say who might annette it or who might in recent history being tested positive so this gives you a notification. Hey you know you gaming on equity this person and he was the best positive so you may want to take some precautions. Analysts say based on these kind of trackers companies and government started building policies. Just imagine how difficult it would be if someone starts messing around for example. Let's say be Falsely claimed themselves as high-risk saying that. I just hires Ever i'm a Is also is that would discreet Rice appear to be systems are already there used is just a v are naively ignoring the fact that some of the notes in the systems be malicious authority. Fonte just like internet. You have millions of notes on the net not everything. Not everything is on the cloud on server controlled by big or big komen administration. They are so many of these notes that are spreading misinformation they have destroying to disrupt the internet for example you might have heard of. Thanks like jamming attacks Jammed the settlers despite sandy query. So you know these kinds of notes vais fairly common in our everyday use in suggests we get to hear them band. There's a big disaster. Or there's an actual big down of these systems when i started learning about distributed computing and of course it was called big data at the time. One of the first examples is term frequencies so in a lot of documents you the percentage of times you see something that often gets labeled as embarrassingly parallel because you just want to frequency. You need the numerator divided by the denominator and it's easy to divide that problem up and rejoin it but not. Every problem is so embarrassingly easy to solve. What about your specific research into gradient descent. What makes that one hard to do in a distributed fashion. You had distributed Any one this networks to be useful to the specific problem. Let's say that you are trying to solve for example as you just mentioned either. You're trying to get the frequency of a border from documents spent on the internet or let's take a step forward but apps you are trying to build some kind of image classified so different notes on the have different data sets. Let's say images of their dogs. And you want to use these images of dogs neck so many images of those who could be a very strong image classic fire for dogs something that would dismantle the human ability declassified at all so you wanna less this complicated Now designing image classified using all these distribution data said on the internet different notes having different data points. It's quite complicated even when you have all the data points at one body a machine. It's a headline. more of the. The sets are divided in different machines so to ensure that comes like these like machine learning run smoothly when certain nodes in the network militias spinal challenging not descending. It's very interesting to study. How these types can be done. Smoothly on gedeon descent is specific That is by far the was algorithm used from sheet lending pieces and what happens ingredient descent. Is you have these different. Data sets distributed on different notes. Therefore defend nodes have different loss functions. Now what we are trying to do now in this district. Setting is minimized the aggregate of all these functions are loss functions. Now when you're doing this by nature the most commonly use angry gradients design. Because it's naturally distributed many obligingly send it just reduces at the gradients of loss functions in each round. Or so if you're learning and gordon to when you're adding these gradients together some notes are not going to provide you ladies of los angeles. They may be forty. May be broadway. You re totally incorrect. Greediest maybe designed maliciously innovate to move you. words solution. that famous day goes data points. They may favor. Let's say dogs of a burglary or some other panels notions. Maybe they want to completely rendered the classification problem useless. They want to maybe instead of dog. Trained you the classify so as you can see ensuring that is reputed gradient descent runs smoothly at least within some reasonable dominates in residents of such Notes is of practically at this point vendor. You have all this The algorithms training using data sets coming from all sorts of people on it.
Kansas City Chiefs player who opted out of season to aid COVID efforts says he ‘made the right choice’
"Little less than two hours away. Now from Super Bowl 55, a game many thought might never happen due to the global covert 19 pandemic. One Kansas City chief who's not on the field in Tampa. Today is Laurent Duvernay Tart if the starting right guard on the Super Bowl 54 Championship team Duvernay tart if opted out of this season. Put his medical degree to use helping fight Cove in 19 in his native Canada this week, watching his teammates prepared to defend their title. He reflected on that decision on TSN 10 40 in Vancouver. It was sure that the hardest decision I had to make in my life, you know you coming up with Super Bowl, You have a pretty good team good chance of winning it again this year. So it was tough to make the call. But at the same time, no right after the Super Bowl in April, I went back and held for 10 weeks and long term care facility and I think that's really where Realized the impact in the burden Kobe was putting not only on the patient, but on everybody who was working there and their kids and their family and all the sacrifices. I think that's when I kind of realized that for me it was a little bit of a nonsense to you know, across the border, Go play football, and I felt like my role this year was to try to help and to try to be In line with my my conviction, and also that five years from now I can look back at 2020 and be like, Hey, I made the right call, and now I can be a physician and live with my decision.

Men have vanished on Vancouver Island. What happened to them?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Laura palmer is a veteran reporter and broadcaster rate. Now she is the host of island crime which launches season two on the frequency. Podcast network on monday. Hello laura hey jordan. Why don't we start before we get to the general topic violent crime and and how you ended up in this business in the first place who are the gone boys so In in this series. I focus on half a dozen stories. there are more but I'm i'm focusing on these guys. For a few reasons. They are men between the ages of fourteen to fifty who have disappeared in recent years from vancouver island and when i say disappeared i mean. They're just gone. They all have a few things in common. And one of the main things is that they have some measure of disability or trauma in their lives and they all are known to be not if not exactly loners guys who spend a lot of time alone and spend a lot of that time walking or biking along the highway on vancouver island and so while there are a number of other men currently missing on vancouver island. These are the men that i focused on in the series men. Who have those things in common. Why did you tell the stories of those men in particular. So i learned. Crime is something. I started last year and in the first season of violent crime i was telling the story of a young indigenous women who had gone missing from the community of nanaimo in two thousand in two and in my research on her story i joined a number of different groups here on the island of that are focused on crime and missing people and that sort of thing and once i was part of these communities. I noticed number of people asking the question. Why isn't anyone talking about the missing men. Where are the missing men. And this was something. I saw popping up in virtually every group i was part of and so of course i was curious about those stories and when i started digging around i found that sure enough there were these cases out there that had received really very little attention there. Was you know one or two stories that had been written about these cases. But you know with some of these men. There hadn't even been a single story done and some of these guys aren't even Featured on the rcmp's website. So i felt like there hasn't been much attention. Paid and i guess the other thing i would say on. This point is You know i. I was a journalist in vancouver in the late. Nineteen ninety s when women were going missing from vancouver's downtown eastside. And i remember a similar kind of thing happening where people from the downtown eastside community family and friends of these women. Were you know trying to get people to pay attention and what was happening. Was the you know the police the authorities were saying. Look these women. are you know leading lifestyles. That are chaotic. And there's nothing unusual about them being missing being off the grid and so police the public the media were all kind of not

"On the official list according to Mellon's brother in October nineteen ninety-three Kalisz county officials told his family that Melanson quote is believed a victim of the May eighteenth nineteen eighty eruption and that after years of searching the family eventually decided that he's buried in the Ash. So taking these two points of dispute into consideration, the death toll could be as low as fifty five or as high as sixty. And when combined with the four indirect victims mentioned earlier, those numbers range from fifty nine to sixty four. So they don't even know exactly how many people died. So a refined estimate of one point one billion or adjusted to two thousand eighteen three point four billion was determined in a study by the international trade. Commission. At the request of the United States Congress, a supplemental appropriation of nine hundred, fifty, one, million for disaster relief was voted by Congress of which the largest share went to the small business administration the US Army of engineer and the Federal Emergency Management Agency or as we know them. FEMA. The area is now known as they Mount Saint Helen's national volcanic monument on the second anniversary of the eruption the USGS office in Vancouver which had been permanently established following the nineteen eighty eruption was renamed the David a Johnston Cascades Volcano Observatory in his memory. the observatory is one of the most responsible for monitoring Mount Saint Helens and help to predict all of the Latinos eruptions between one, thousand, nine, hundred, and nine, hundred, eighty, five. In a two, thousand, five, Open Day the lobby area, the CBO included display and painting commemorating Dave Johnston following the eruption the area where the cold water two observation posts had ben was sectioned off. But eventually, an observatory was built in the area in Johnston's name and was opened in nineteen, ninety seven. Located just over five miles from the north flank of Mount Saint Helen's the. Ridge Observatory the Jaro allows the public to admire the open crater new activity and creations of the nineteen eighty eruption including an extensive basaltic field. Part of the Mount Saint Helen's national volcanic monument. The JR was constructed for ten point, five million equipped with monitoring equipment and visited by thousands of tourists annually. it also includes tours a theater and an exhibit hall and also minor, Planet eight six six, three David Johnston discovered by Eleanor Helin Nineteen ninety-one is named in his honor. His mother stated in an interview shortly after the eruption quote, not many people get to do what they really want to do in this world but our son did he would tell us he may never get rich but he was doing what he wanted. He wanted to be near if the eruption came in a phone call and mother's Day, he told us it's a site very few geologists get to see. and. End with a quote from will durant whose American writer historian and philosopher he wrote the story of civilization, which is like an eleven volume history of humanity he said civilization exists by geological consent subject to change without notice who be. Yes. So now if you look so used to be like top down, you looked at it and it looked like a mountain. Now, it looks like c shaped like it has this huge crater and We'll post some pictures of like before and after the explosion, but it's It's amazing. It's amazing. Amazing. So it wasn't just there's a volcano. Oh. No Oh no, it's. Out The top like Volcano Shah, all of a sudden like that it was they had an idea that something was happening. Earthquake Bald measure. Yeah. Don't go there. Yup. Their stuff happening so. That's that's really interesting. Yeah. It's it's amazing that you think of volcanic eruptions. I. Mean. Stephen I had watched Dante speak like a couple of months ago, and I was telling him about this when I was doing the research and he was like Oh like Dante's peak I was like, yeah. Well, I'm pretty sure Dante's peak was like based on. The Mount Saint Helen's explosion. But yeah, I mean there were people who were like guys. This isn't normal dormant volcano activity or like. Sleepy, volcanic activity like bad things are happening. We have the data like everyone stay away but because it didn't explode as soon as they said, hey, guys things are happening. People were like. It's not that big of a deal like I don't see it exploding. It doesn't look like it's GonNa Explode. There were so many people who are like we haven't had an explosion in over one hundred years what who's to say, what are the odds that it would happen now? Like that's ridiculous. That was in the eighteen fifty fifties. She had no idea what they were doing at the time. So it's just very interesting that I mean. blessedly governor Dixie Lee was like, Nope we're GONNA keep the red zone and also there weren't more people on the mountain at the time just because it was on a Sunday. Yeah. Like there would have been way more people in like the blow down zone if it was a weekday where people were like working. So wow. It's wild do and is it still an active volcano? It is I think it's still considered like an active volcano because they're still there have been like earthquakes that have happened between two, thousand, eight and two thousand I. Mean I'm sorry, two, thousand, four, in two, thousand, eight there were some. There were a couple of smaller eruptions team blasts in that kind of thing, and now because there's a history of people were like. Yeah like they were very very like, okay. We're GONNA keep an eye on this and so they're still continually the Vancouver. Observation Point in the Johnston observation point like they're still keeping an eye on things and doing measurements on a regular basis so. There's that but yeah. Crazy. Disasters. All right. So Mike Quiz today. I was very proud of this Mike. Quiz today is called Rock flow a quiz unwrap rock bands and collaborations. Questionable one one of the first if not, the first rap and rock collab- was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five when rum DMC hopped on an already classic aerosmith track. What is the name of the song whose music video featured run DMC jam master Jay and the Boys Boston, literally breaking down a wall.

"Its fendt. But some was carried hundred fifty miles south to bend Oregon or two hundred and eighty five miles east to spokane Washington. So the ash went pretty far and those who were like what the What is happening here? So? then. A second new crater and a blue flame were observed on March twenty ninth. If I know anything about flames it said any color other than orange is best not great. It's not great. It's not great. So. The flame was visibly admitted from both craters was probably created by burning gases as you have implying. And also, I didn't know this but static electricity generated from ash clouds rolling down the volcano sent out lightning bolts that were up to two miles long gosh. Ashby dry like as it's like moving through the atmosphere and create static electricity. So the mountain must have looked like the entrance to hell at this point like something is shit is going down. So, ninety three separate outbursts recorded on March thirtieth and increasingly strong tremors were first detected on April first alarming geologists and prompting Governor Dixie Lee Ray to declare a state of emergency on April third. So Governor Ray issued an executive order on April thirtieth creating red zone around the volcano. So anyone caught in this zone without a pass faced a five hundred dollar fine which is equivalent to about sixteen hundred dollars today or six months in jail. And this precluded many cabinet owners for visiting their property. Okay So a United States Geological Survey team here by known as the USGS determined in the last week of April that a one point, five mile diameter or two point four kilometer section of Saint Helen's north face was displaced outward by at least two hundred, seventy feet. So this means that it is literally growing a bulge. bobble underground that is visible to the naked eye. So for the rest of April and early May this bulge group five to six feet per day and by mid May, it extended more than four hundred feet north. So this has been online since March. Yes. Since early mid mid more march there's been like. Signs that something's going down a mountain. So ask this bulge moved northward. So you have to imagine it like so you're looking if you're looking like top down from the mountain. North of the mountain is this like bubble and it's shifting basically down the mountain, right? It's shifting like it's moving at a at a significant rate. as it moved northward the area behind it sank. Okay. So as like as like a bubble moves you like Russian like a bubble in your pizza crust exactly like a bubble in your pizza crusts. Not Nearly as much more dangerous actually So this is called a dry. This complex dropdown block is called the Grey Ben. Jerry a AB an okay. So. Geologists announced on April. Thirtieth at sliding of the Bulge area was the greatest immediate danger and that a landslide might spark in eruption. So the thing is, is that geologist realized that there's all of this pressure building up. And so it's creating this bubble and because of gravity and just the way that that. Volcano works the bubble sliding down mountain, creating this depression behind it, and so this depression behind it releases pressure K. right like it's like pulling the the pressure away. The magma is exposed in that bubble because the rock covering is being pushed forward and by releasing the pressure like popping a pimple, that's when an eruption happens. So the eruption would happen behind this bubble that's moving so Because the intruding and AL explain this. Because the intruding magma remained below ground and was not directly visible. It's called Crypto which is in contrast to a true lava dome exposed at the surface, which you may have seen pictures of that in like Hawaii, volcano. So. On May seventh eruption similar to those in March and April resumed, and over the next days, the bulge approached its maximum size. So it's getting bigger and bigger. Yeah go ahead. Say there there had been people living near this right then when the governor was like everybody out. Yeah. Everybody out everybody stay away. Yeah Right. So however. Well, we'll talk about that a total of about ten thousand earthquakes were recorded before the May eighteenth event Wa-. With most concentrated in a small zone less than one point six miles directly below the bulge. So visible like eruptions these little like. Little gas leaks and like ash clouds and things, and they stopped on May sixteenth. And during this time between like mid March to about mid mid May. People were coming to like watch this. Yeah. So. After they. Stopped. Showing up on May sixteenth people like didn't care anymore they're like, okay. Party's over like. It's done. So the number of spectators in the area, where do I mind this time? However mounting public pressure then forced officials to allow fifty carloads of property owners to enter the danger zone on Saturday may seventeenth together whatever property they could carry. Oh so they were like a well, the stuff stopped on May sixteenth. Okay. Young go you can go in it was actually it was more like people were like this is stupid like. This is not the thing that everyone is calling it. All, this isn't a big deal at all. I should go get my stuff. Yeah. At least. Let me go get my stuff. At because obviously, this is also this is starting to become like the Spring Torres season. Go Up to their second homes at the base of Mount Saint Helens like there. You know lodges and Kayaking, and also in this area, there's a lot of logging. Okay. So there are a lot of logging companies who want to get back up there because this is like we're getting to the point where we need to start logging a send like meeting our quotas and stuff, and because nothing has happened like, why are you preventing us from doing our jobs and or like living our lives you know? Various interesting young. Meeting itself yeah. Yeah. So Again, another trip scheduled for ten. AM The next day, and because that was Sunday more than three hundred loggers who would normally be working in the area were not there. So, by the time of the climactic eruption magma intruding into the volcano had forced the north flank outward nearly five hundred feet or one hundred and fifty meters and heated the volcanoes groundwater system causing many steam driven explosions. So things are like. Not. Great. Yeah. Things aren't great so. May Teeth is when things go down but first we're GONNA talk about two very different men who were witnesses and ultimately died in this event. So the I was David Johnston, he was a thirty year old usgs geologist who was at an observation post six miles north of the mountain called cold water to when the eruption hit. Given, the increasing seismic and volcanic activity Johnston and the other vulcanologists working for the US in Vancouver branch prepare to observe any impending eruption and this was in Vancouver Washington. There are two Vancouver's there. There's Vancouver Canada and there's Vancouver Washington. Vancouver Washington is a city just north of Portland on the north side of the Columbia, river which is the border between the states. So Vancouver is south of Mount Saint Helen's significantly south. At the time geologist Don Swanson and others placed reflectors on and around the domes and established a cold water one and two observation posts to use laser ranging to measure how.

Am talking with someone who runs a business on the simply will be the second in a series of islands, being businesses as well because obviously not only are there people behind these businesses that are dealing with pandemic, but there's also the businesses themselves that I.

I think it's been nine years. So. We've been around for a while little while And we sell shoes, and and all sort of leathery things, but begin Exclusively. so I mean yeah. With nine nine years in in lovely Vancouver I'm guessing new seen quite a few changes, but obviously right now. There's been. Some significant changes that have kinda altered a lot of things around the world, but. Within. Vancouver and maybe within BC I'm not sure like how the restrictions are coming down to two people and stuff What are some of the things that have been happening involving the pandemic that have kind of affected like how you've been able to do business. Well. There weren't any actual restrictions on our business per se. Except in mid March by mid March. Or even early, March, maybe late February we started to see sales declines in our customers.

"Seven hundred thousand eight hundred thousand and I agree that the. Rental market is is much more accessible to get into in Vancouver then the buying market. But also I found that Wilmer there and we looking for Airbnb, it was very, very difficult to find any type of affordable Airbnb in Vancouver as well. And I think that comes back to the point that it's so much more Taurus did and there's so many more people coming through. It's it's more of a destination than Portland is that I would rather a city not have as many tourists and have have more locals than be constantly have an influx of people coming from all over the world. Specifically people coming from Asia and flooding Vancouver at all times of the year with tourism. I see. Well, I guess I can't really count act that because Pullan does have visitors, but I feel it's more domestic. It's more other Americans coming. Sure. They have international visitors, but. You're right. Vancouver Jeff has more tourism. It's bigger city. It's pretty known around the world for being one of the top cities to live in the world. I don't know if Portland can have that claim to fame literally list on list of just being the best place in the world to live well, except for the housing crisis. The how. Except you can rent pretty affordably. Another thing that I love about Vancouver is what you can do right around Vancouver in this rounding area. So we went to capitol no bridge the last time we were there actually. Last year last year. It was very cool. I mean you to walk through these tree houses over the river on the bridge, lots of people, Instagram, this bridge. I mean, you can't Instagram. With that other people in it ever unless you go somehow hours. Paint Hoover Touche Touche, but it's beautiful. It's absolutely gorgeous. And then if you just want to go up into the mountains in thirty minutes, you can be in squamish, which is very cool. It has lots of little breweries. You can do the CD sky gondola. That's awesome. There's miles of hiking trails up there that you can just do immediately. Right, right. From the city. Yeah, are still a lot of stuff you can do outside of in Cooper, but I would say that there's a lot of stuff you can do right outside of Portland, you mentioned that the coast is about an hour and a half. You also have Noma falls and the gorge which is, which is cool. And we've done multiple times about what twenty thirty minutes out of town. So I guess Vancouver and I will give you this point the stuff to do around it, and the views because of the mountains are a bit more stunning because they are because you have some incredible mountains. You have, obviously, you have Whistler if you're looking to ski trying to make your point for you. I'm just saying it is more dramatic and it is more stunning, but I wouldn't sell the stuff to do around Portland short. That's very true. Gorge get out to hood river. However, how many times have we passed only onto Gordon falls and the parking lots to full. You can't even go. So maybe you're not having floods of Asian international tourists, but there's enough people who think it's cool to Instagram at Oneonta gorge that you can't even go there in the summer or wish you guys could see this video head is shaking back and forth, like, oh, no, you didn't..
