Alfred Wegner Takes Continental Drift to the Next Level
"It was a really interesting guy. Born in eighteen eighty in germany got his degree in astronomy but became meteorologist which was still a rather new field at the time. His primary interest was in the northern polar regions. And how air circulated. He participated in four expeditions to greenland and was one of the first meteorologist to adopt the use of weather balloons. However meteorology and expeditions to greenland aren't what alfred wegener is best known for its for his contributions to geology and geophysics. The idea that he is remembered for began innocently enough on christmas day nineteen ten. He was at his friend's house when he began looking at his brand new world. Atlas he made the observation that south america and africa seemed like they fit together like pieces in a puzzle. I should that he was far from the first person to notice this once. Decent maps began being published. In the last part of the sixteenth century people. i observed the same thing. The first person we know of who made the observation was dutch. Cartographer abraham or telling us or telling us created the first modern atlas in fifteen seventy which means he was probably the first person to have the idea because no one before that really had a good grasp of the geography of the continent's william colby wrote in his book on geologic history. Quote abraham are telling us in his work to doris geographic suggested that the americas were torn away from europe and africa by earthquakes and floods and went on to say the vestiges of the rupture. Reveal themselves if someone brings forward a map of the world and considers carefully the coasts of the three continents and quote. Ortelius was far from alone after him. The idea that the continents fit together somehow kept popping up theater. Christoph lilienthal alexander von humboldt antonio snider pellegrini and alfred russel wallace all made the same observation one or two hundred years before moreover there were several other scientists just a decade before who came to a similar conclusion. In fact. there's a good chance that you probably made the same observation. One of the first times that you saw a world map they took the idea to another level however he began by cutting up maps and piecing the landmasses together like a puzzle. He was able to put the continents together into one giant continent that he named panja from the greek words for all and land.
NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover Fails to Collect Rock in Sampling Attempt
"Mars Rover hits a snag as it attempts to collect data scientists hope will lead to a better understanding of the Red Planet's geology. The Mars rover perseverance is breaking new ground. New images show a bore hole where the rover tried to drill out its first sample from a dried up Martian lake bed looking for signs of past microbial life, But the rover failed to collect any rocks and NASA is troubleshooting. That CBS News correspondent Adriana Diaz the drill hole, the first step of assembling process expected to take about 11 days, the aim there is to find signs of microbial microbial life that may have been preserved in some ancient lake bed deposits.
The History of Cannabis
"Turns out we have geology to thank for cannabis. At least for cannabis's psychoactive properties. The ancient ancestors of the cannabis plant started growing tens of millions of years ago around. What is now central asia like pakistan northern india nepal. And then something dramatic happened the entire subcontinent. That is now. India drifted north crashed into asia. The crumple zone is what we now call. The himalayas and the cannabis plants that were growing in that zone. Got really really high and the ones that were stuck down low the plains near the himalayas. Well they didn't get quite so high is difference is both topographical and literal the cannabis. The grew in the mountainous region started producing thc. Which or the uninitiated is the chemical in cannabis. That gets you high. We don't know for certain. Why the plant produces it. It appears serve kind of sunscreen. Chris duval is a professor at the university of new mexico and author of two books on the topic. The african roots of marijuana and cannabis kris told us that the cannabis that stayed down low and temperate plains. Those plans did not produce. thc they became. What we know is hemp source of cloth rope and disgusting. Health foods cannabis grew really easily and a lot of different environments especially ones. We disturbed to build settlements. It was literally a weed. That's why we call it weed. And so there was probably a lot of cannabis just growing in central and east asia both the high mountainous regions and the low parts and so a really longtime ago as long as maybe twelve thousand years ago people figured out ways to use it. It appears for both populations. Initially people used it for the seeds which are edible You know you can buy them in. Eat them nowadays. Emcees are often founded natural food stores. Today they're full of wonderful nutrients but they taste terrible. And before you all right in and tell me i'm wrong. not only to. Cynthia agree with me. The historical record does to kris told us that in china hemp seeds were at one point considered a staple food but it was kind of slowly replaced as people in that region in china.

I have about $30,000 in savings, and I just wanted to get your opinion on what I should do with that money, whether that is putting it in a rock, IRA or Saving it for a dumb payment in the future. Um, for a house. Okay. What are you working you in college? What are you doing? Yeah, I'm in college in my 30 years. Um, I I'll be graduating. Next made good. Um and I'm working part time degree with a degree in what And Earth science Cool and hopefully I I'm able to change that to a degree in geology. Very cool. Okay? So, um, what are you gonna do for a living when you get your degree? Well, I'm thinking about going into hydro geology doing work in that Which is why I want to target the geology degree. Um, right now I'm doing an internship with the water district here in Orange County. Um So I'm getting the experience. Uh, I'll need in the future with this internship. Um so yeah, That's kind of what my goal is right now. Okay, So when you finish all of this, and you get the dream job, what does it pay? Don't know what a hydro geologist gets paid. You have to tell me. Yeah, they get paid. Um, I think starting it's about 80 80 K years and then it goes up to 120. How long is it going to be before you complete this field of study? Um Well, if I if I go to earth science all some way. I think I'm not sell out like nineties, which is one want to do an extra years. If I do the extra year, England to geology, I would be graduating may have 2023. Then I can. Um I would have kind of a bigger K range in the future, Which would, um I think from what I've seen, it's about 122 180 with the hydro geology and that will take you. I'll take you an extra year. Yes, kind of like doing grad work in a sense, but it's not really okay. No. Yeah. So the $20,000. The best investment that Maria can make mathematically is in this investment called Maria. Completing that field of study. Completing that degree with what you just told me you're going to make as a result is worth the investment of the dollars a lot more. Then a mutual fund or Roth IRA will ever pay you. So I want every dollar you've got committed to you graduating and you graduating debt free as soon as possible and pursuing that line of income that you're telling me you can make Yes. Every dollar. Maria is the best investment Maria has possible because you've chosen a field of study. It's not left handed Puppetry. You actually can do something with it. And you figured out what that is. And you know you didn't hesitate when I ask you. How about the career field looked like and how what you would be paid, you already know. This is not a pipe dream. You've got this study you You've thought this through working in it right now. Plan that you're working the intern. You're doing everything right, kiddo. Thank you. Yeah, I also I forgot to mention, um, for my my expenses for school. I get financial aid, so I basically everything's covered. Which is why I didn't know if I don't care money. I don't care if I don't care if you've got a hunt. If you save up $100,000, and you don't even need it. Go ahead and save it up. And make sure that you graduate the day you graduate, you get this job will start investing and you can use $100,000 to buy your first house. Okay, but right now we'll do that right now. That money is laying there to make sure Maria graduates and Maria graduates debt Free. John's got a PhD in higher education, Maria So I mean, you don't see this fact finding very often. No, this is a laser focus. But when Dave says all your expenses are taken care of Here's what that means, like most college students will say, um, tuition room and board. Dave also means your engine is going to fall out of the car. He means you're gonna someone's gonna throw a rock through the back windshield or you're going to need some more. Whatever the thing is, so get to the finish line owing nobody anything. That makes sense. Okay? Yeah, it does. It does make sense. That's job. One Job two is get to the finish line with 50,000 bucks in the bank.

I mean, you're amazing. Thank you. So proud of you very well done. If we could train America to do that might be okay itself is like I don't know, man. Let's think about it, bro. And she's I mean, the number of people getting a degree in beer pong is scary. All right. Helen is with us in Fayetteville. Hey, Helen. What's up? Hi, Dave. Thank you for taking my call. Sure. How can we help? So my husband an I. R on baby steps 45 and six and we would really like to get our house paid off in the next 18 to 24 months. Cool. But I'm wondering, but it makes sense for us to back off our retirement. Um, investing a little bit. To free up some money to throw with the mortgage and just to give you a fuller picture of what? What's the balance on your mortgage? 250,000. So how much you're gonna back off and how quick what's it going to change the numbers? Well, so we currently have about 425,000 in retirement. He is 50 on 49. It wasn't what I asked. I asked how much you're going to back off and how fast it's going to pay off the mortgage because it's my body. Not gonna do what you think it's going to do. Well, so we're currently only setting aside about 10%. We're maxing out the loss for one K and Ross. I'm self employed Roth Ira, and then we're We've got some cash set aside beyond our Six month emergency fund and we're kind of we're in that position of like, Can we start throwing this at the mortgage? Do we need to do outside investment? Outside? What one more time? Would you tell me? Your household income is About 400,000. Oh, you didn't tell me, Okay. All right. So if you make 400,000 and you don't want to put in 15% you only want to put in 10%. How much cash have you got Set aside. Um, let's see above our six months. Um, about $50,000. Okay, so C 5%. I did that. Yeah. Yeah, So if you do that, that's going to pay its $80,000 a year. Um, did I do that.

Strong Earthquake, Magnitude 5.9, Rattles Central California, Sierra Nevada
"Are shaking this year at Nevada this afternoon with the largest being a magnitude 5.9, which is considered moderate to large and hit at 3 49 PM there. Mark Louisville and Alpine County, which is south east of Lake Tahoe, and multiple smaller quakes have followed. Largest of those being magnitude. 4.2. Initially, the U. S Geological Survey showed a quake centered near Stockton, but that ended up not being the case. U. C. Davis professor of geology John Rundle says quakes in this region other Sierra Not unusual. I mean, there's a whole network of faults in Eastern Sierra, One of the largest earthquakes in California history was the 18 72 earthquake on the Owens Valley Fault. So that was a magnitude. Some 0.8 earthquake. The shaking from this afternoon's quake was felt throughout the Sacramento region and the Bay Area. No immediate reports of any damage.

You're not a super villain you're merely fan of the marvels of nature. Okay exactly so so. Volcanoes iceland is really the place to look to find some of the coolest examples of what they can do. first of all they just add land. The nation of iceland is straddling the mid atlantic rift. It is getting torn in half. It is also on top of hotspot and over the millennia as the island nation gets torn in half. You don't actually see a gap forming because all the volkan ism. There is just filling it in now. The other side of this is there are islands all around the world at hawaiian islands or one of the most noticeable where you have a chain of islands that on one end is all dead volcanoes. That are well weathered over time and a great place to go live and then you have as you move down the chain you have younger younger islands that are more and more mountainous more and more active and these islands which are still growing for the active ones have amazing land to farm and if you want a nation to grow well. This is a different way to do it right. I mean a lot of the volcanic islands like the hawaiians that you mentioned even just across the pacific. There's tons of these of these islands. They provide stopping off point for birds. That are migrating various creatures and as you said the land around a volcano is incredibly fertile. We've known this.

Climate Change Risks Mounting for Businesses
"Risks and opportunities to companies face in the years ahead. Here is maggie. Pelosi an attorney with vincent and elkins. Hi meg welcome to climate. Cast ballots to be here. So how do companies begin to assess their risk as climate change impacts. Continue to unfold. So i think many companies have already started down this road and fundamentally there are two big types of risks that companies are looking at right now. The first are risks or opportunities that individual companies may face associated with the energy transition. So that's the transition from an economy. Where many of our power sources are coming from. Fossil fuels to an economy is mostly powered by renewables or other carbon free kinds of sources to power the second risk. That has gotten less attention. But i think is in many ways going to be more significant for all companies on a going forward basis is the physical risks of climate. Change as you well know in your listeners will be well familiar. There are a number of physical impacts of climate that regardless of what actions we take to reduce emissions now. We are going to experience changes in storm. Severity rises in sea levels. Changes in temperatures in each of those types of events can have impacts on the ability of industry stained continuity of their operations or to respond in emergency or disaster situations litigation. Around this. what are you seeing emerge. I think the most prominent piece of litigation in this space are the legal challenges have been wrought by a variety of municipalities against oil and gas producers. Those cases are in very early stages. There are a number of other types of cases that we are starting to see against corporations that are asking questions about the readiness of companies physical facilities for climate change so basically using tools of conventional environmental law to say. Gosh are you really complying with your permanent things like preventing spills or preventing releases if you haven't thought about the potential for increased storm surge increased flash precipitation events those kinds of things. What about regulations they're changing. We know there's a change in politics in washington. Dc so what are regulators doing around climate policy. And what does it mean for companies right now. The most significant thing that's happening in climate change that will impact corporations is the increase in attention to climate at the securities and exchange commission in terms of other buckets of climate regulation. We expect to see the will. Impact businesses the fed has created a group called the supervision climate committee which is essentially looking at the potential to create climate stress test for systemically important banks and then we will certainly see some of the more conventional types of greenhouse gas regulation environmental laws to be signed the obama administration. What about opportunities. Are you seeing opportunities ahead in this space. I absolutely am seeing opportunities. And and i think that the right conversation around climate at pretty much every company is. What's the transformational opportunity. I'll give you a very concrete example in the oil and gas industry we are seeing an increasing number of the big oil and gas companies. Talking about how they can become carbon management companies right. They will say look should regretting oil and gas. How the ground. But you know what that means. We're great at characterizing the geology formations knowing how to see to inject things and knowing how to monitor wells and knowing how to plug in the end in them so we can take all those skills and we can turn around and start putting c o two into the ground and we can create a new line of business for

The trick only about six and a half maters was designed simply to test. The car sized six science labs mobility along its violent launch from earth the freezing code seven month journey from earth to mars and it's rigorous entry descent and landing into jets crater still the mobility. Test max one of many milestones on mission managers checklists as they calibrate every system every subsystem an instrument on both perseverance and its companion helicopter drone ingenuity drive which lasted about thirty. Three minutes built the road before with by four meters then turned in place one hundred and fifty degrees to the left and backed up two and a half meters to a new temporary packing spot wants. The river begins pursuing scientific goals. Regular commutes extending two hundred made his a more expected. Kate objective of perseverance as mission on is is astro biology including search for signs of ancient microbial life. The rover will also characterize the mashing geology and past climate. It'll pave the way for fiji. Human exploration of the red planet adult will be the first mission to collect an save martian rock and regular for future sample collection and returned to worth subsequent nasa emissions. In cooperation with the european space agency will then send a sample return mission to mars to collect the samples from the surface and return them to work for in-depth analysis. The mass twenty twenty perseverance mission is all part of masses moon to mars nation approach which includes adamus missions to the moon that will help repay for human exploration of the red planet. The rovers mobility systems. Not the anything getting a test drive. During this period of initial checkouts visit variances also received a software update replacing the computer program that helped land perseverance with the one. It will rely on to investigate the red planet. She manages also checked out. Perseverance as radar image of mao subsurface experiment. And it's myers. Oxygen in situ resource utilization experiment instruments. They then deployed the mas environmental dynamics analyzer instruments to win senses which extend out from the rover's mast. Another significant mawson occurred on meisel day. Twelve engineers unstirred the robes to meet along robotic arm for the first time flexing age of its five joints over the course of two hours robotic arms. The main to the science team will use to close up examinations of geologic features and it will drill and sample the ones they find most interesting upcoming events and evaluations over the next week or so. We'll include more detailed testing and calibration of the scientists tournaments sending the rover on long drives and jettisoning the covers that part of the river sample caching system and the genuity mass helicopter during landing the experimental flight test program for the ingenuity helicopter will also take place during the rovers. Commissioning well well. This has been going on mission cameras being busy. They've already sent back more than seven thousand images

Trump administration to auction oil drilling rights in all federal lands of ANWR coastal plain
"After decades of debate the trump administration next week is planning to auction off drilling rights in alaska. More specifically alaska's national wildlife refuge those against drilling say they want to protect the land which is home to some two hundred and fifty animal species including caribous and wolverines. But here's what you may find surprising. And this long-awaited bidding process turns out. There's not a lot of interest. Here's marketplace's scott tong. A lot of things were in fashion in the mid eighties. Big hair fanny packs and oil giants wanting to drill in alaska. National wildlife refuge an. I'll have mostly gone out of style. Tim brasher co publishes the alaska economic report. One thing that is really interesting. A lot of us in alaska who follow these things is how embitterment the major oil companies have been an war for years. That could be because they sense. The toxic politics decades of environmental opposition media risk of lawsuits against oil companies. Considering in war plus corporate reputational risk readdress and drilling in remote alaska is not cheap. Warns energy and lawyer. David hayes a former top official at the interior department. The price of oil is not high. The expense of drilling at alaska is high. Meanwhile there are many places in the world that are much cheaper to drill for oil than the alaskan arctic. So most if not all oil giants are expected to sit out the bidding which would mean lowest prices in measly royalties for the government. Now at exactly what. Congress predicted three years ago. When an authorized leasing assumed a billion dollars in royalties the bids that are put in are going to be nowhere near what congress said would occur. Low bids mean drilling rights could go for bargain. Prices though and radner at the alaska economic report predicts some interest perhaps among state and local players. The geology does look very good and even given all the bad pr and the politics. I just can't imagine that somebody maybe just individuals aren't going to submit bids perhaps anticipating lukewarm interest alaska state development commission.

He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack.

Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be
How failure can led to massive success
"Hey, their freedom fighters, Miami's Andrew Warner and the founder Mixer g where I interview entrepreneurs about how they built their businesses. You know one of the big hesitations that we entrepreneurs get in our heads before we start something is. Going to be a lot of time a lot of work. Some of our money maybe a lot of our money and Risking all of it along with our credibility on an idea on a business that I was gonna say could fail but let's say is likely to. And it causes hesitation it keeps us from starting keeps us from building on. Well, joining me is an entrepreneur who? Entrepreneurs hate it when I say failed but I'm going to say you tell me Charles. If you're uncomfortable with me saying he created this product called T. L. Dr Dot co he his goal was to summarize the interesting content on the Internet. I failed invested a lot of time into it. Put a lot of themselves into it. It's still. Closed. Upset with me saying the word failed you don't seem to be. because. I like to say that the the failure. To stock the more winning business. That's the point I was getting exactly what Charles just said that he because of this business because is bad experience ended up learning how to create businesses learning, what to create went to create it how to figure out what customers are willing to pay for how to get customers. And it's. This was not a bad experience you said. It. was a very good experience is not because you fail that it's a bad experience. You're. Always to to see the the good ways of things and the see that's a a an experience is experience and you have to take the most. It's an thing is what we did we geology are is that we look back at what we did and What we did great. What did he do? Wrong. And how we could make it. The next run. And you did the new company that Charles, whose voice you just heard that's Charles Micheletti he is the founder of to Ken. What they do is they help companies take the data that we're all building up and make it easier to express to other people find the meaning of the data, make it actionable. By making the data more visual in- it's especially helpful for CEOS and product Product managers who are building his software into their own platforms, but many other companies in addition to software creators, and by the Charles talk about how well he's doing with his business and we could talk about it. Thanks to to phenomenal sponsors the I. If you're trying to get your ideas off the ground, you gotta check out host dater. And I'll convince you later to go to hostgator dot com slash mixer to do it and the second if you're at the stage where you're kicking around idea for business for a product, I want you to check out my friends over at launch pier where they will build out that first version for you and their launch pure dot com slash mixer g, but I charles the hardest in most awkward and maybe the one that you're most proud of is What's your revenue? So. Our revenue approaching like millions of recurring revenue. Doors ten yet even more than we had an arnold since last time we talked. Yeah, you'd. For I would say approaching. Growing fast and. WHERE WE WILL BE A. Big inning for twenty twenty one in the few just of Schumann's and up until recently, you were bootstrapped about a year ago you took on how much funding? We took twelve million funding. To boost? The growth and to Elvis. A. Meanwhile. Though you hit what four million dollars in revenue by then by the time that you took on more than that, we we it's a six million dollars. Why'd you take on funding? Because it was the right thing to do it. Because you wanted to take a little bit of your money off the table. No it was the right time because we want to skate and we want you to. Higher more senior people. Because you you know that the right time when you see. Will hit some. Glass ceiling. When and if you don't have. Money to invest you you will lose opportunity to. take the market and to. Go Faster. So we knew what were you going to do with the money? What was the vision for it? So we the plan which is still the gun to to invest money in a few different areas of the company from is the product because issue onto leader of the growth. Strategy you need a Marie strong and differentiated products. So I would say that nearly a third of the offending. Will be used always be he's being used to fund the new version of the product, and the second thing is to a more senior people in the leadership's sue until then when we would strap only said for funders, full people driving like nearly. People Company and be wants to. The the company Kale, and also provide the people that worked at you can with a great leadership to ebb them grow in their. Career and went into Higher Sanyo people to do so and and. So we want you to envision says pitching, which is used to. Expand. The business in Unification's
Interview with Michael M. Santiago
"Thanks knowing this of course. No problem. Vanish this is like. The conversations that are had on air pretty pretty though. So I'm glad to long an honor to be part of this for your name has come up several times over the last couple of years I've only had had you. Had you on the list. So that's good. Good time to reach out and can night. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's exactly what everybody's doing right now. Hey you were born in the Dr. that's my parents are from. Yeah I mean born in. Nights nineteen. I can't even remember now is a nineteen eighty. So. What what city. We were born on I was on copy dialed as basically my immediate family is, but my my mother, her family, their foaming in bed, which is. A small time to set up with the bladder. My Dad, my dad's not under the too much about my dad's Oscar damage much. But from when I understand I the capital also. Yeah, my dad was from Monte Cristi my mom's family's from La Vega? Okay. Yeah. Yeah. and. Then they moved to center the Mingo before they left to for New York in the late fifties. Okay. Yeah I mean. Like, 'cause you know I've been trying to trace trace back my father's side on the family you know once I started to get interested more abolish genealogy geology where we were from and what you know. My Dad was actually in the military and he you know he was actually caught up through just dictatorship us he was on that but the wild thing about that, his dad, his sister, my aunt she worked for the the opposite President Enhanced Dominican Republic with them in the sixties when when the loss the EH associated. Oh Man. Yeah she teaches he traveled to Europe with them when we had to flee in then somehow ended up back in America and I've tried talking to her against some stories about what that was like again, martyrs three and she won't speak about him and. Famous with my parents I, try to talk to the Minnesota's like. A. Lot of there. So yeah. It's like, yeah, I'm sure that it's painful. I really difficult and. It was always very curious about it and I was never able to crack my dad. And my mom and my mom, you know I'll never get it out of her. Yeah. So. There was one time. My Dad passed away. It was like three or four years ago going on four years. Now at some point he you know he was really sickening. It's all kinds of medicines than that used to give him loose nations and it was one day where he had caught we know he had a flashback to the date at three Joel was was killed and he got on. Your is like my mom's like we gotta go gotta get the kids dress. We gotTA GET OUTTA here to come in after out to, and luckily my older brother is day visiting from Florida ended up calling comment Docs not older brother was in the military as well. So like you know he was just telling dot com not everything's GonNa be fine. You know you're good. You know the kids find like that and that was the first received. My Dad's like had any kind of looks flashbacks on time at a military man, my uncle. Was One of those. Guys who went over to try and overthrow through here. and He. Got Him. You, know and. And then at some point after that, my father went to Cuba to get trained by the Cuban government. The Dominicans around the time that I think Trujillo was assassinated. My Dad never ended up going to the aren't came back but it was always really strange to think of my dad as a young man training to go to war 'cause. Just it just. Naming new. Things, the reason why my dad was really two of my beard 'cause about those. Ill is hated the fact that I had a beard and he would just tell them to save in guy and I know probably because
Micro Wave: Why Some Fruits Ripen Faster In A Paper Bag
"Hey nerds. So today we've got eight special guest short waves, very own producer Brett Hansen Hey Brit. Hello. Hello. This is your first on air shortwave appearance and I am aggressively excited about this I. Know You are yes, it is. Your. And today we've got our latest microwave installment, you know these snappy episodes with a couple of quick signs tidbits, some listener mail, which I very much enjoy reading every morning except for mean. I picture you with Your Cup of coffee and cats just going through the mail. So you've your investigative reporting skills to work on from what I can tell is your favorite topic of all time peaches US yeah I really really love peaches Yeah. I. Don't know if you know this but I do eat one standing over my kitchen sink pretty much every day I. do know that you've told me that Multiple Times Brit actually can't stop talking about it. They're the best part of summer. But now that summer's over, I've been using that paper bag trick to get them ripe. Do you know what I'm talking about you put them unripe and peaches and a paper bag for a couple of days. Take them out will oh yeah. They're ripe I'm doing that trick all the time I'm doing that trick right now actually knew or not I have peaches from the farmers market in a bag trust me. Okay. Well, that's actually what we're going to talk about today I've been using this trick for years, but I had no idea why it works. So I wanted to find out. So today on the show, we talked to a fruit expert about why some fruits like peaches ripen faster in paperback and why others don't. And? This is shortwave. From NPR. Okay Britt. We are talking about why some fruit like peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So who did you talk to? Yeah so I called Juan Carlos Melgar he's a professor and pathologist at Clemson University some people say what's Pamala geology the science that study for three? Yes. So matty, full disclosure I didn't know what a pathologist was before I talked to one Carlos somebody who studied fruit trees shame another thing I didn't know is just how many varieties of peaches there are many take a guess how many do you think there are? A eleven. Okay. Well, eleven is a great number. Tell, it's not right. I could tell. But it is not the right number. Juan Carlos told me that he works with almost three hundred different varieties. There's no three hundred and he says compare that to apples. For instance, a lot of people know dame's varieties apples. Gala. Readily shows or whatever. However, nobody knows varieties features. And that's because they're legal Ten days two weeks bad variety is gone. Wow. You're already in my mind but Hansen. Okay. Each facts are facts I feel like I've been disrespecting peaches up until this point and I, need to change. Okay. So what did you find out about the paper bag trick? Yes. So one Carlo says that there are two key factors to understanding why some fruit including peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So let's start with factor number one beaches produce a gaseous horrible. It's called Italy so. That gashes hormone ethylene is a ripening hormone. So as peaches ripen, they produce a burst of ethylene. So ethylene ripening go hand-in-hand exactly. But it's not just that a ripening peach produces ethylene it also responds to it. So say, for example, you create an environment where a peaches not only producing ethylene, but it's also surrounded by it that right there is the trick to making the peach ripen faster finding away to surround a peach in the gase hormone. I. I'm sorry expect gas or boat. I. Okay. Okay. This is where the paper bag comes in right? Yeah. So you put a peach in a paper bag close it up, and then all of the ethylene it's naturally producing gets captured and starts to accumulate inside the bag which means peach surrounded by ethylene Michael Peach steam room. A. Virtuous. Cycle exactly. That's exactly it's like. Okay. There's another part of this that I thought was pretty cool to arrived impeach. Using lot of athletes could help ripening a piece that is driving yet or not the same banana. Classic example Ou Yeah. So basically, the more ethylene accumulating in the bag, the faster the fruit ripens. So Super Ripe Peach is going to help a really hard peach ripen even faster. If that makes sense personally, I like to call this fruit teamwork. Mattie I think that that's a scientific term. So Okay Br does it matter whether or not you use a paper bag or could you just put the peach in like some other kind of container I actually wondered about this too. So basically, is there something special about the paper bag and this brings us to factor number two respiration? The other characteristics of these fruits is that they have not on the peaking saving. Peaking risk creation there we spiring. Yeah fresh fruit continue to fire or breathe if you will after being harvested so. Even producing carbon dioxide those peaches need that Oxygen Hanson. If. That seal two accumulating, they're they're useless oxygen. refire this. It's going to slow down there. Got It in writing if you wanted to writing to let that go on. Okay. So something that allows like a bit of airflow or just oxygen to be coming in and out. So a plastic bag won't work neither will a tupperware container or anything else that essentially prevents oxygen from getting inside Sudas the paper bag trick work for other fruits too. So it works for some but not all peaches, bananas, tomatoes basically fruits that ripen off the plant after they've been picked. Those are the ones that you can pop into a paper bag. Got It wow Brett Hansen. I. Have Learned so much
1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens
"So my episode today. is about the nineteen eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption. So now, we weren't alive then even though we were not alive, then it was you know years until Jillian. Many years. Until we were born. We are in our. Mid Twenty. S. So we're very youthful. Yeah. We say what's a CD or whatever I don't know anything I couldn't even pretend to be a teenager because I have no idea went technology. Don T TIKTOK ON THE TIKTOK You know on the TIKTOK so. Nineteen Eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption has a lot of parallels to what's going on in the world today, but it's an interesting story. So to to start with for our non US friends and Non West Coast friends, I didn't know the details about this when I started researching it but Mount Saint Helen's which is known as a lot lot to the indigenous lets people and Lou wit. Luella cloud to the click a tat is an active stretch of Okano located in. Skamania. County. Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States I. Apologize to the Washingtonians. If I pronounced Skamania county your Skamania county incorrectly. I'm sure I will get an email about this. Fifty miles eighty kilometers northeast of Portland Oregon Ninety, six miles or one hundred and fifty four kilometers south of Seattle Washington. So to get a sense of where Mount Saint Helen's is. If you're thinking of both Washington state and Oregon is roughly like. Square ish rectangular ish in shape with Washington, in the north and Oregon just below. Mount Saint Helen's is in the lower left quadrant of Washington state near the border of Oregon. and. She's roughly halfway between Portland, and the Portland Oregon and Olympia Washington, which is the Washington state capital. Okay. also relevant northeast of Mount. Saint Helen's is what's called Spirit Lake. And there's a bunch of little rivers and creeks in that area just due to like the geology of the area but almost directly north of the mountain is the north fork toodle river. River toodle or Poudel T. O. U. T.. L. E. Title River. So. Also? Mount Saint. Helen's takes its English name from the British diplomats. Lowered Saint Helen's is a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late eighteenth century The volcano is located in the cascade range is part of the cascade volcanic arc, which is a segment of the Pacific Ring of fire that includes over one hundred and sixty active volcanoes and for the record before the explosion mount. Saint, Helen's stood at nine, thousand, six, hundred and eighty feet high. So. They knew it was part of the ring of the ring of Fire Okay Yeah Yeah So. They knew as part of the ring of fire. It had experienced some activity throughout recorded history but it. It remained dormant basically from its last period of activity in the eighteen, Forty S and eighteen fifties. So by one thousand, nine hundred had been more than one hundred years before there was any like really significant activity that includes ash like little burps and like any kind of flow or anything like that. So. At this point people were pretty complacent thinking nothing's going to happen anytime soon it's fine like it's a dormant volcano for all intents and purposes until we get to the spring of nineteen eighty. Okay. So, there were several small earthquakes beginning on March fifteenth of that year indicating that magma may have begun moving below the volcano also just as an f. y. we talked about natural disasters on episode sixty one which was called here I am rock. You like a hurricane I talked a little bit about that about volcanoes in that episode. So if you want to refresh your memory about the basics of what's in a volcano check that out episode sixty one, it's very good. Thank you. So on March Twentieth Three Forty Five PM Pacific Standard Time, which everything will be NPS T. Shallow magnitude four point two earthquake centered below the volcano's north flank signal the volcanoes return from one hundred, twenty three years of hibernation. A gradually building earthquake swarm saturated area seismographs, and started to climax at about noon on March twenty fifth reaching peak levels in the next two days including an earthquake registering five point one on the Richter scale. A total of one hundred and seventy four shocks of magnitude. Two point six greater were recorded during those two days. That's a lot. Yeah. So geologists in that area are like look is no not a great sign. Initially. There was no direct sign of eruption but small earthquake induced avalanches of snow and ice were reported from aerial observations. So this mountain is shaking and you know stuff is falling off. It's not it's not nothing. At twelve thirty, six PM on March twenty seventh phreatic eruptions which are explosions of steam caused by magma suddenly heating groundwater. So that's like a quick like spur. Of, like Ash and Steam K ejected and smashed rock from within the old summit crater. Excavating a new crater, two, hundred and fifty feet wide. And sending an ass column about seven thousand feet into the air. So you yeah, knock. Great. So by this date along, east trending fracture system had also developed across the summit area. So there's cracks forming in the summit. This was followed by more earthquake swarms in a series of explosions that said ash even higher above there. And most of this ash fell between three and twelve miles from 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.
NASA launches Perseverance rover on mission to Mars
"That was pretty cool. I run away two up Mars. And it's going to take nine months to get there on then it will take And you know it will be there for three months and going to come back another coming back, but it'll take nine months. Flying extra fast. I don't know what fast is. You know, I heard 26,000 miles I heard 18,000 miles, but it's fast, man fast. Let's find out what's going on here with the NASA. All right. Things wrong with that was NASA launching its newest rover to Mars today, Researchers plan to use this trip to look for signs of life on the Red Planet. CBS's Chris Martinez has Mohr on the potentially historic mission release. NASA's latest mission to Mars blast it all from Kennedy Space Center. Embarking on a journey that could answer an age old question. It is very hard to imagine that we are alone. Project Sciences can, Varley says A primary goal of the latest launch to Mars is searching for evidence of ancient life. The perseverance Rover will drill into the planet surface to search for signs of long dead microscopic organisms that may have thrived on Mars billions of years ago. Wow, that's kind of cool. Right could been Martians on their billions of years ago. There are environments that have been found, especially by the Curiosity Rover. That by every characteristic that we know of look habitable. Searching for evidence of life Isn't the mission here that by the way, every characteristic is checked off. Every box is checked off and there Certain that there was life at some point on Mars that by every characteristic that we know of look habitable. Wow, that's sensational, right searching and then we gotta figure out what the hell happened to him. Why did they become extinct? Right, searching for evidence of what a plastic straws that did him in? That's possible searching for evidence of life isn't the missions on Ly goal. The latest rover will also study the climate and geology of Mars. This first of its kind Mars helicopter, capturing aerial views of the planet's surface. Somebody stayed in school longer night did right Setting up a rover up to Mars. And then it has the ability Tio helicopter pops out of his belly for perseverance will also collect samples of Martian rock with plans to one day, return them to Earth. Really, be sure that we're seeing signs of ancient life on Mars and the rocks there, we have to bring samples back Earth Tech researchers say the mission is ready to go, thanks to nearly all work on the project being wrapped up before the Corona virus pandemic began. If this had happened six months ago, when we had hundreds and hundreds of people at the laboratory building things we wouldn't have made it. Perseverance is expected to touch down on Mars just over 200 days from now very ago. Nine months to get there. Chris Martinez,
Volcanoes of Life
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormack in today, we're going to be talking about something that I've been thinking about doing an episode on for a while ever since I read an article while back that really interested me, and that is the surprising and kind of counterintuitive link that has been proposed by many geologists now between life as we know it. It on earth and the fires of Mount Doom, specifically, the the most violent and scary of geologic processes like volcanic eruptions on the movement of tectonic plates. Yeah. This is a great topic to get into. We kind of had a I guess a preamble to this a couple of episodes ago when we were talking about eggs and we talked about the volcano birds and the idea of a volcano being seeming. Almost. Paradoxically to be something that can nourish. As opposed to something. That's just a purely destructive force. Oh, I. didn't think about that comparison at all. But yeah, the the way that the volcanic sand babysits the egg for for the megapode so that it can just run off and do its own thing. Yeah. Raised by a volcano. But so I thought a great place to start here might be with a brief reading from volusia. It is a famous old norse epic poem from the collection that is known as the Poetic Edda. Now, this is a synonymous work. The author is unknown, but the volusia tells the story of the norse Gods culminating in their destruction in the fiery doom of Ragnarok can I'm just GonNa read a couple of Quad trains here. In Anger Smites, the water of the earth forth from their homes must all men flee nine paces fares the son of Jurgen and slain by the serpent fearless. He sinks the Sun. Turns Black Earth sinks in the see the hot stores down from heaven or world fierce gross. The steam and the life feeding flame till fire leaps high about heaven, itself Nice and one fun thing about this poem. It's bit of Tolkien Trivia Robert Tell me if you've heard this before, but the name of the wizard Gandalf that first appeared in Tolkien's. Tolkien's the Hobbit and then of course, the best character in Lord of the Rings, the name of Gandalf comes from the Veloce token, actually borrowed the name from a section known as the tally of the dwarves from this epic poem. Originally, he was going to apply it to the character in the Hobbit, who became thorn oaken shield the leader of the Dwarf Party. But then he decided later on that, it made more sense to apply the name of Gandalf. The wizard. I think because again, Dal means something like magic staff l.. and. I think he made the right choice like, Gandalf. That makes more sense for the wizard than for Thorin. Think. So but cool thing that happens in this poem sort of part of the RAGNAROK. Myth is that there is a rebirth that follows this fiery doom know after the fire leaps high heaven and the Kingdom of the Gods is destroyed. Earth is not just left in cinders instead, there is a renewal from the fire and the author writes now do I see the earth new Rizal Green from the waves again, the cataracts fall and the Eagle flies and And Fish, he catches beneath the cliffs. So there's this great link between Fiery Cataclysm and rebirth and renewal of life in norse mythology, and and of course, you know these are symbolic elements. I'm not suggesting that they had some kind of scientific insight with this is something that I think is taken as a metaphor largely about human life itself, but coincidentally, it ends up kind of ringing true with things. We're finding out about geology and nature. Well, it's something you see in a lot of different mythological cycles, right I. mean you see it in Hindu mythology? In. Various. American mythologies. Thinking about. Meslin. South America in particular society that things will rise things will fall that there will be cataclysm that whole world will be destroyed, but new worlds will rise out of them and have risen out of them before. Yeah. I was thinking about themes of fiery eruption in the greening of the earth together or sort of a creator destroyer duality. One that came to my mind that that I thought, you might know something about because I know I've heard you talk about Hawaiian mythology before was the Palay myth. Yeah. Yeah. The Hawaiian got his Palay is an interesting example, a deity of fire and Volkan Ism I was reading a book titled Pay Volcano Goddess. Goddess of Hawaii by H are low nemo, and he points out that when Polynesian voyagers I arrived in Hawaii, they brought their gods with

"We are the ladies of strange I'm Ashley I'm Tiffany and I'm Rebecca. Thank you for joining US each week. is we discuss the history mystery? In theory of all things, questionable and Airy, good job, guys. You got through it. Straight face no GIGGLEFISH I bit my tongue, and almost said something, but I thought you guys with. Yell at me for stopping. That sounds like a bad side show clown straight face fits. What. I don't know that's just what came in my head. When I sent straight face, no gigabits man. Oh, okay, another clown murderer! No I'm thinking like. In nineteen fifty sideshow clown probably would be in like freak. Show like American Horror Story Freak show. I mean he could be a John Wayne Gay. See Ma'am Times to. Why are you on your laptop? I'm not on my laptop. Are you lying I'm not a D. do you see my laptop open? I don't think you close now yet is closed. I WANNA teach us some stuff to have a history lesson history, okay? And seven years ago, I got really excited about this forefathers. Numbers in there so Jackson Beverly Wilga where collectors of vintage photographs and had in their collection a dagger type. Oh you don't say an old photograph taken using a process that involves a silver plate and Mercury Vapor, and his photo was of a young disfigured man. the photograph was believed to be taken in the nineteenth century. The man in the picture was believed that the man had encountered a whales. He was holding Harpoon like object in the image. TIFFANY's face. That was fun. they couple had the image on display in their home for years in December of two thousand and seven, the couple decided to share the image on flicker and titled it a one eyed man with Harpoon super, super creative, so one win was. When did they have it? In their home? Court were the years they had in their home, but they didn't post it till flicker until two thousand seven. Okay, so they decide like a random picture of some random disfigure. Yeah, some people collect mentioned photographs. My Dad is one of those on. This might make him happy. One Flicker user contacted the Combo commenting that the man probably isn't a whaler as he wasn't holding a Harpoon in the picture, was he holding buy outs. Oh, sorry I thought. You said he was holding her. They said it looked like her. so another user saw this picture and said Hey, this might be the only surviving photo of Venus Gauge, not famous gauge. Where's verb? Not Verb just just benny US I. Don't know that name so shown, either. That's why I said. Where's Fergany isn't firm? So, y'all ready to learn about Fini's gauge. Liz Foreign and eighteen twenty three, the DSP gauge lead, either an uneventful lifer didn't bother keeping a journal because he doesn't pop up again until eighteen forty eight, okay. Okay. No list of at the age of twenty five Fini's was working as a railroad, foreman and common dish Vermont and on September, thirteenth eighteen, forty eight made a really good attempt at receiving the Darwin Award. Oh my God. Yes, so excited, so phineas worked for the RUTLAND and Burlington railroad company as a form part of his job involved coordinating, blasting out rock to make way for new. New Rail. Lines does part of the job required knowledge in geology and trigonometry, so I have a note to me, saying Insert statement about how trig is as useful of the maths, I will say I really liked. trig choke is super. Useful triggers the most Hallo basic addition. Wouldn't just like OPRAH EMMY BE MORE USEFUL THAN TRADE? Because I never took trig and I'm getting along just fine. Your overcompensating at all. No compensation here I come to terms. Okay, so geology and trigonometry so not only did. They have to be pretty clever, but he also had a handle his crew, who was described as a gang of men who basically needed all the. Since they enjoy things brawling shooting and drinking, they sound like sounds like my. Sounds like the type of people that didn't take trig. had good people skills. Though so is crew liked them to blast the area involved not only defendants have to create schematics aware to drill holes that were a couple inches wide, and a few feet deep, but also had to be able to place them along natural joints and rifts in the rock to make the job easier because why work harder than you have to the cracks just like push it a little harder so i. Like my mental health. Hey? Push it just one step further fine, are we? I completely lost what I was going to save. Thirty Oh. Did He Oh, I was thinking like the he needed to do dousing, but you're talking about like actual cracks in the ground. Yes, we're not looking for water. He's trying to clear out pathways like blowout rock lay lines, not like no crat down, sorry. You bring a witchy friend along. Here is the source of power here. Blow the spot so once. These holes were drilled. Blasting powder was placed into the whole untapped down. Using typically crowbars. Vinnie. As was kind of a big deal. He had his own tampering device made by local blacksmith to Tampa device was basically a Joplin with thirteen point. Two five pounds was forty three inches long and tapered from a diameter of one point, two five inches, which was an eas for taping into a point. Any guesses on where this is going. That's his Oh. Oh, is that how he lost his eye? So once I found stated that the incident happened a one day while camping bananas endured the Osha Guidelines for tapping blasting powder into the earth with a long metal spike.

The Big Easy (with Father Brad Doyle)
"I'm so excited for this because I. Admittedly have never been to New Orleans. Although many Louisianans. Oh, Lord, what's the Deborah and we're going to get into that I got. Using Indians Louisianans have told me like. Oh, you gotta get down there and have some shrimp to fe. experienced the joy of New Orleans, so. Yeah, yeah, I just allow me to bathe in the knowledge of the south. I was you in crab? Boil right now. Sounds a little painful. Be Baptized and Gumbo. Is that service you provide in your church Father Brad. I cook. I Cook like the other day. I went over in at a social distance, sat and and prisoners, driveway and boiled to Sachse, crawfish and like just gave it to him and sat at. It's socially distant. Right off, but so I I do do that, but they usually eat it. They don't pour it on their head or it on themselves. I mean that's the waste, so that's understandable. Who Hey please. The floor is yours Sir Nice okay, so we're gonNA start with pronunciation. Very while the city derives its name from the city of early-on, France. It's not pronounced that way or else people think you are conceded. I'm in New Orleans. So, it's some other mistaken. Situations are new, Orleans or even worse knowledge wins okay. That's very touristy. Okay, One's going around. Saying Nolan's in New Orleans like when we kept referring to Chicago is Chinatown. From What he says, so the best way to say New Orleans is just a smash two words together and just say New Orleans. Let's try like Toronto. Toronto Yeah Yeah. New Orleans okay, and if you live in new, Orleans you're a newer Linian. Okay important, okay, so history! I think it's historically interesting because it's. It's kind of very different from a lot of the country, our country. As is the case with most of the Americas the human history of South Louisiana begins with native Americans right. There were there. And the major tribes inhabiting the area, or the president. Of President of the Chitter Maka and the choctaw tribes, and what's cool is the chicken Maka are the only native tribe of Louisiana. He's still inhabit part of their ancestral land, so we still have people who are a part of the tribe that still inhabit where their ancestors lift our. And many of the rivers streets still bear their the language of the choctaw. For instance there's a street called Chop Tulips, which is just really hard to pronounce even harder to spell. But it is right there on the river, and a lot of stuff is on top of tulips now it's. Exploding section of the city and that's actually a choctaw word. It's not French anish or Haitian or anything. okay. New Orleans. As we know it now is the result of a French colony. Probably know that is founded in seventeen eighteen by Montreal Frenchman and this is you know. French people have these long names a John. Baptiste Lemond be in Ville. But we just call him. Be in Ville feels like a the founder of New Orleans. Chose New Orleans because of the high elevation like where it's at. It's actually has a natural levee where it's located like the French quarter now is where the original spotless, and it didn't flood during Katrina so the French quarter didn't flood. who was all the surrounding areas that flooded? Okay so the land itself is a natural. Levian protected it from the floodwaters exactly. Of Us. WHO. Are probably thinking well. It's at the mouth of the Mississippi right like exactly. something. It's it's not exactly right there. Most of the city. We'll get to that the geography of it. Or geology of it, but it's that section. He chose wisely I mean he chose it for a reason right, so it's a little higher than all the other areas, but it's near strategic waterways. Help it with its. It was considered a port at the beginning I. It's still is, but it was. It was supposed to be the gateway to. Louisiana territory. Okay, so in seventeen twenty two. It was made the capital of French Louisiana though it struggled at first we think of new. Orleans a super touristy, like a great place to go experience, culture and music, but that wasn't the case at the beginning. It was on the outskirts. It was very rustic There's a one of my favorite quotes from missionary priest. Who is there in seventeen twenty one? And this is his quote about New Orleans. He says it's a place of one hundred wretched hovels in malaria, sweat, thicket of willows and Dwarf Palmettos, infested by serpents and alligators. That sounds disgusting. Florida. Things are. A minus the malaria pretty much pretty much accurate even. Mosquitoes. So yeah, that was it wasn't. It wasn't always the tourist destination so and it was French colony until seventeen, sixty three, when very confusing land trades from treaties from the French and Indian war, which not going to explain it I don't quite frankly because I don't understand but that resulted in Spain so seventeen, sixty three Spain, the kingdom of Spain like the monarchy took over. and. They got the territory west of the Mississippi, so Spain got all the territory in the Louisiana territory west of the Mississippi. Plus, New Orleans in Britain got east of the Mississippi minus northern New Orleans this little bitty section. That Spain was like now we want that. which is kind of important because Britain? Never controlled New Orleans. They never controlled it, which is kind of like a point of pride for us. I mean with the French and British kind of beef, but but also because later, and we'll get to the battle in Orleans. We. We fought back the British. In the battle of eighteen twelve at the battle, yeah, that way you can twelve okay, so all in all New Orleans has been under the control of the following. People's the Chitty Maka the monarchy of France. The monarchy of Spain. And then it went back to the Republika France this is post, French Revolution Right Oh early eighteen hundreds and then. U. S. A.. And in eighteen O, three right with the signing the Louisiana purchase the first major event in US new, Orleans, history was in eighteen, fifteen at the end of the war of eighteen twelve, so US forces the militias of New Orleans so just regular new Orleanians like picking up arms, and even a pirate, so there's a famous pirate named John Lafitte. Have you ever heard of John Lafitte Yes, and the BARATARIA. There were basically I mean we were taking every body. And just throwing them at the British we're like we are not letting them. Take the French quarter. Okay, and so they they set up in this place called Shell met, which is really really marshy it's south of New Orleans. and. We fought them back in and actually they were led by Andrew Jackson so old hickory himself.
"Today a monster. If you're of a certain age, you might remember the nineteen fifty four movie creature from the Black Lagoon. Here's the plot. A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence, a skeletal hand fingers from the Devonian period that provides a direct link between land and sea animals further excavation of. Of the area where the fossil was found turns up nothing the leader. The search is ready to love, but it's thought that thousands of years ago, the part of the embankment, containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water that was washed downriver broken up by the current. The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right. Right Produce Sir William Allen was attending nine hundred forty one dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane, in which he played the reporter Thompson. When Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half fish half, human creatures, Amazon River, Allen, rose. Story notes title the Sea Monster Ten years later using beauty and the beast just inspiration. In December nineteen fifty two Maurice Jim expanded this into a treatment which Harry Essex and Arthur Ross rewrote as the black lagoon. The rest is movie history. The story told to Allen by Mexican cinematographer gave Figaro was based on the legend of Jaka. Ruina buried accounts describe. The arena is being Harry with their heads turned backwards and deformed feet. Could be characterized as seductive and sexually dangerous lure humans into water by taking on human forms when people of the Amazon and community disappear, and do not return such as fishermen husbands in young girls, deception is the ACA Luna had seduced and captured their victims.

Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned. Turned into a Jaka rhuna transformation to Jaka Ruina is irreversible and a person so transformed may never return to his or her home. I researched this story. I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities. He described in a log I how his daughter! Daughter was taken by Jaka Luna One day one day she was swimming, so it's she was pulled under and vanished. Nobody was ever recovered grief-stricken. He and his wife returned to the states. They soon separated. It was an auditory years later alone and distraught, but he returned to the Amazon River, whereas daughter had vanished that he saw her again still alive, but it transformed into a mermaid. She had married a yacht, Luna and gain knowledge in becoming healer of the waters. No one ever saw. saw the doctor again. The doctors camp was discovered by a group searching for explorer Percy Fawcett. Who vanished in the Amazon in nineteen, twenty five monster
