Coronavirus for Amazon Sellers
"We'll bring you today. A very international panel and the subject of today is all about roundup really big picture perspective on how Amazon's affects people globally and more by luck than judgement. We got people in three different continents joining us today. Was this kind of crazy so starting from west to East which feel somehow logical. We got generally from ten key product management Dogra from rural handmade originally from India. Actually in London England not far from me and then John Calvin dish originally from the UK but of course over in Vietnam several timezones ahead. So thank you particularly John. Thank you for staying up to the really the middle of the night to join us. But thank you all very very much for coming along. Great to see you guys. Thank you so let. Let's just two quick introduction of assault one at a time so so we know you know where you're coming from and what your perspective is generally start with you L. I work at turnkey product management. We are basically a done for you. Service Amazon consulting company where we will manage top to bottom Amazon or different brands also offer come sheen an courses so different opportunities their religious trying to help rams excel on Amazon cacophonous. Let's get with the next. Hey everyone my name is gonNa Arkan. We look for Ora Rural Hanmi. Essentially if I tell you what we do. We are Alibaba for handmade. And what's really do? Is we connect to putting onto says who want to create these mindful Brian's to Communities across the Indian subcontinent which includes India Sri Lankan Bangladesh and together. They basically formed this amazing sustainable brand. We specialize in three categories which is living giving and dining and we for Amazon sellers specifically we work on a mind to market model where we essentially commission design ideas into actual physical products. Odd Handmade all sustainable. That's what we do. Co. Ryan said quite a different thing altogether and then John what he doing over in Vietnam Ashley obviously stuck in Vietnam for the next six months closed by yes nice. They're safe here. For a few cases I run a couple of businesses so I I am an Amazon seller as well we do. We have a full service. Agency called E COM DNA. And then. Recently we won't sell Candy Candy is. It's kind of to fill the gap between having a full service agency and having someone to help you out on Amazon. So what we do. Is We do the mundane boring tasks that you don't want to do. As long as the central we do it so unlimited tasks in south central for a set fee a month having Luca but already trying there's no h There's no need to explain to them how to do things just log tasks with us and we get to the outcome rather than south central they just keep telling you to submit the case again. Absolutely great kids. Well you know what's interesting is about. Is You'll interact with a lot of different businesses as well as hoping you'll you'll find pies of various different things yourself so. I think you're well placed to give a bit of flavor from what your clients are experiencing say. The first question is ready. What changes have you seen in your own Amazon business? All businesses will your clients business from I. Guess say January February this year to the car employing which is just the end of April twenty twenty at the time of recording this so anyone wanted to stop the bay question. Because there's been a lot. I think I can say a little bit. If you want please on we have a lot of clients in both US EU. All over the place I said. The biggest challenge with with solid candidate with being assistance is the notifications because we do account monitoring insane at the moment by boxes coming and going everything appearing and disappearing all day every day so it becomes a monitoring monitoring listings becomes a huge Odua task. Obviously Start Shopping Amazon stopping everyone shipping in between was middle of March and April with a big pain especially in Europe and in Europe at the moment still that closed down French film incentives and Yukon Ship Inter Intra country between certain countries. They went shipping into Italy during using European fulfillment networks that you could if you had a majority in the country. So what we've been doing is kind of helping clients now. We are in business to move things around us three pl walls and make sure that we can still have live this things every marketplace because in general sales volume on most things that we've been seeing is in down too much unless you are in a very very essential category climbs volume is significantly up volume is up but it really depends what category you're in. Las People are getting hammered. Here which is not good but Amazon is actually moving back up because we had a lot of deliverability slip away for a long time. Yeah I think. Overall my understanding of Amazon's sales volumes that March twenty twenty twenty percent up on March twenty nineteen. So yes it needs to. Yes thanks for that feedback at interesting the notifications thing which hadn't struck me with his true. I suppose managing that is you know because everything's a bucking Bronco. At the moment. Isn't it genocide of some of this stuff but for clients like a world away in some cases? So what are your? So what have you been seeing on the sort of the pros and cons of the current situation right? Yeah I mean he talked about the FDA if being restrictions was a huge hit majority of our clients do fall into the central category. So a lot of them actually really grew especially in the month of March. April would say it started to kind of Plateau still high numbers. But it's not in a crazy rise right now now as far as you know clients. That aren't able to ship items in. We did have a few of those. Actually one of our biggest clients was in the situation where they are not in a central product and they had to switch to FBI scenes in F. B. M. warehouses wedge was able to help sustain their numbers. And that now even even as we're going along we're still not for all clients able to ship items in. It's kind of a hit or miss but it does. Actually we work with Amazon Launch Pad. So we get some insights from them and everything like that and they basically said you know you're number one dollars are going to be the ones that you start to see that you can send FBI inventory in and it will kind of go down from your release. You know your least popular products so we are seeing that pretty consistently where the number one new products force given brands are starting to open up. The definitely seem very similar things to John where definitely specific categories or. Do we really really well. And others are taking a pretty big hit. Just losing the prime badge in switching. Fbi everything like that yet. It seems to be a common theme but it could target reinforce because every so often you have an assumption but that proves wrong and those are the things you think you know. That aren't true. It is good to tease out but it sounds like some predictable things but also in sing sing about the number one side is kind of by. Castle Grill by sorry by client will my status it by account. That's kind of reassuring the islands in willing to do that. There's some kind of common sense there. So cannot identify not much on the management side but obviously very very in the global source thing side of things I mean. What are you saying from the sourcing side of things Timothy? Overhaul what you've seen the two major mindsets shifts that you've seen Onto minutes we will have one is even an all re looking at. You know we can't hedge and do the entire Susan from China for example and they're looking at we diversify these risk factors go to different sectors. You know the thing supply chain is better at the same time. I think we do talk about Obama's and sellers and they're bigger concern. You know when you create a brand. How safe is the brand which as always been a big concern for them and should we be really focusing on creating and selling existing products and and what we see is in Zuma's that I'll buying out for stories looking looking for things that have a meaning behind and I think we really strongly believe us as a brand associate company week and of Supply that story Do a
Interview With Rabbi Daniel Lapin About The Coronavirus Situation
"All right let me go to rabbi Daniel Lapin because I I have a religious question for the rabbi and it revolves around jubilee and I was thinking how do we get out of this mess without just scrapping the entire worlds to adapt to that no one could ever pay is we're already there rabbi welcome to the program our area hi Glen good to be with you again and before we've even going a little further let me just to congratulate you and thank you for being the only one to deeply and honestly probe Ted Ross Adams links with the Chinese to address Saddam of course being the first ever non doctor head of the World Health Organization yeah and and covered some of the things you have yeah we we we just it's a main story now on the blaze dot com or you can you can watch this from the blaze yesterday I did a bit of a monologue on it this guy is was you know part of the politburo he is deeply in bed with China part of the the the the the political party the communist political party that he was a part of it will it was deemed a terrorist organization and he's the head of the WHL I mean it's insane insane it really is and and is distortion of the early weeks of the corona virus just prove whose pocket he's in bed it is happening because the Chinese have successfully colonized Africa to a fall great and also to the phone and to to a far more extractive way than the British and the Germans of the Belgians ever did in the nineteenth century yeah exactly right exactly right so rabbi Lapin I have a question on jubilee because we are racking up the debt the world is the rich you're going to get richer on this the banks are going to get their money everybody's making money except the actual people and it and there's no way to pay any of this back it's making all of the people into slaves all around the world and I remembered there was some sort of a system in in Jewish law that like loans had to be repaid by seven years or something like that and then every twenty five years or fifty years there was something called the jubilee world debt was wiped out and might even close on that yes no you you're definitely close and you and I spoke about this years and years ago and and you're exactly right there is it is a fifty program bad it's not quite the socialistic dream that some of our left leaning friends might my dream off because they will ways to make certain that business loans were exempt from this pay back and the reason was because business would have just slowed to a standstill for the last few years of the jubilee cycle because who's going to extend credit to and will close wiped out so A. as a sort of band aid to to irresponsible behavior in the proceeding is didn't didn't quite work that way and and also it it it didn't extend to the return of mortgaged land that is being developed how many undeveloped and so there again as it goes back really to to the big idea which which really were exposed to the very first time in the fourth chapter of genesis where god punished Cain for murder and and because the punishment is supposed to fit the crime in in guard system of justice and unity spectacle what was the punishment to train and the punishment was interestingly enough to fold most people only remember part of it people familiar and remember the best way god says well you have to be a wonder you never gonna be able to stay in the one place in any waiting periods of time but the second part of it was that you'll never be able to grow anything because whatever you trying point will not yield its strength to you so now it gets kind of interesting because what's Kane is being told is Hey you there are only two uses of lands the good lord made a certain amount of land and this two uses human beings can put it to agriculture and development we can grow things will build things mining falls on the ground so those are really the only things you can do now if the land is not going to yield to you then you compliment anything and if the land is is he is not going to be available to because you have to keep moving well you can't really build a skyscraper if you Constantinian one place long enough so somehow or another god is saying to cane use sort of that the secret to wealth acquisition was getting rid of the competition in a useful to begin to get rid of able and now you're gonna be able to have everything and guess what your land is worthless without other people it doesn't mean anything land the land in unpopulated areas of Somalia and Ethiopia for that matter is cheap really really cheap but there's a good reason it's cheap the location he wants to be there Landon very populated Hong Kong Switzerland is very expensive that's where people want to be and so one has to be very cautious when tampering with this divine system of human economic interaction and obliteration of debt is is a huge huge problem because of the blow that it strikes to the system of confidence on which all economic and and financial interaction depends so I you know wouldn't when you say it it can never be repaid well unfortunately there are many people in government or think it can because and that this is a professor at the state university of New York who was not adviser to the to the Sanders campaign who said this there's nothing the government can do it just prints more money no problem yeah you know right right literal failure to understand that that's just another way of stealing our money ever the citizens money and so this is this is unquestionably a huge problem but you know look England came out of World War two huge debts Germany came out of World War one and two with huge debts eventually impact the lost installment of one of these that's was paid I think as recently as the nineties so you does he eat it if we don't get paid that can get paid it'll just take a long time and and if it's not done very wisely and you can precipitate another crisis Texas is that system that is the situation at the vin diesel is that Yukon's destroy the system economic development and the big picture that AB it's been extraordinary to watch is that the default position is people will happily exchange freedom for security and so big organizations get big and I think we're all very concerned about the alacrity with which authorities have seized extraordinary power certainly questionable whether it's constitutional it's certainly not American tradition you know that something which is admittedly there's this there's there's a disease that's a problem it's kind of the salt yeah there was aids was the problem they found solutions he borrows a problem there's a vaccine flu is a big problem there's a vaccine you know I don't know when or what or how but it's going to be solved and the the problem here is is that we are we're not just training our liberty for security but we are we're actually flipping the sense of rights on its head you don't have a right to be safe from all things that that that that that's not even possible right in the Sony's acts and not a right right and so the government is is taking are enshrined rights and taking those away to prop up a right that doesn't and cannot exist and you you're probably on top of this as well but as is obsessive James Dwyer at William and Mary college I mean Michael one of the very old school in America who just recently wrote that the the rights that parents have with respect to the children all grounded by government and that's all it is pretty extraordinary so you know you thought you have a special relationship with your children know that depends on whether the government wishes were you retain that right with respect your children so the the fearsome and terrifying alacrity which with which people seem to accept this extension of in many cases all the tree application of governmental power such as the woman in the pocket and me my goodness the the speed with which you know the cop on the beat used to be your friends he was the one your kids could turn to if they will last and now what are you becoming a terrifying instrument of of applying state power it's easy it's it's frighteningly quick and

Why stories matter now more than ever
"In late March in an apparent attempt to avoid cove nineteen a Quebec couple drove thousands of kilometers west to White Horse. Uconn then they travel to the flying community of old crow a community of about two hundred fifty people one still without a case of covert nineteen but the couple was eventually sent packing chief. Dana. Tj Tram of the Glitch in first nation was shocked by the couple's actions. To tell you the truth I was not prepared for a random couple from Quebec to to. Just come off the plane. It was really concerning to people just because we have a very small tight knit community that have grown old together for generations so for some strangers just to show up one day. It was almost as if someone just walks into your house and helps himself to your fridge if he will. But especially under the Kovic crisis this only had exponential affects. This story sounded a bit familiar to Guizhou Rice. Because he had written it. Before or at least a fictionalized version of it. And his post apocalyptic novel moon of the crusted snow while gisha is initially bay from the socks in first nation and also the host of. Cbs's up north. Hello Wab. Welcome back to this. Show month brand I Roseanne. Thanks for having me again. Why don't Weird Weird Situation? This is so weird I was tagged dozens of times. Chris Static the witches lawyer is original tweet about it and Yeah it kind of blew my mind very confusing. I Bet I bet you feel a bit. Like an oracle not really but. I you know obviously see the parallels between the you know this real life imitating fiction right. I wrote that particular plot points of Muna crusted snow just as a what if not as this sort of how to guides so maybe. I feel guilty as a result of that. I don't know I for the UNINITIATED. Tell us a bit about your book. Moon of the crusted snow. Okay Yeah So. It's a look at the moment of apocalypse From the perspective of northern New Snobby Community. And what happens in the story is there is a blackout due to sort of mysterious. 'cause They communications go then. The power goes outright so this community because it says so far north that people are still somewhat connected to the lane and they're able to adapt to sort of move through this sort of confusing new era but those who aren't as adapt that sort of hunting fishing and You know living off the lanes descend into a bit of panic and chaos and then on top of that just things start really getting intense. Agai comes from a city in the south. The Big White Guy who has equally mysterious background as you know as the catastrophe itself and He begins sort of imposing his will and then he's followed by some other people from the south things. The community is forced to make some pretty serious decisions as to how they're going to survive and how they're going to move forward in this new era. Yeah now this plotline that your frank you with the with the gentlemen coming from the South I'm obviously they're they're looking for food shelter and a knowledge to survive in this new reality but the indigenous community really response Interestingly to this to this To this person showing up in that they make initially welcome him in as right. Yeah and you know. There is a bit of conflicts some tension amongst community members as to what they're going to do but a lot of the leadership in this. I know in that in that particular community is still very closely connected to national values despite you know. Colonialism enforces simulation as such. So you know some of the people believe we as we should welcome this individual in and try to work together with him to create a you know a good community as we try to navigate this new reality of living in the darkness right Sort of how. He's able to take his place In the community so when this story in the Yukon I broke just recently many people online silly related to your book. What did you think when you first heard about? I thought back to win. I started writing moon of the crusted snow and that was always going to be a major plot elements of the story. Was THIS JUSTIN SCOTT CHARACTER. This white guy coming into the community from the city right and then sort of imposing his will and As I began writing it about a month or so in I started having doubts as to whether that would actually happen. You know I thought. Would there actually be people who would flee the city in a crisis in go to the res- to seek shelter to seek safety and so on so I thought that's not believable at all? I don't have a viable story. You know but it went to this House party in Ottawa Halloween Party. Actually when I was living there and that was about a month and a half into writing the first draft and was steeped in this doubt about whether this was a believable story and I started talking to this random dude their end because it's so deep into the sort of Story in thinking about the end of the world that was basically all I was talking about the people at the time so I must have been pretty fun chat back then but anyways I was talking to this guy and we were talking about things. Go down and what would happen. And so on. And he uttered the blue says. Yeah if it all went down if things fell apart here in the city the first place I'm going to the res- and I was like. Oh Yeah I was like Whoa. Why why would you go there? Wh- what's the thinking behind that he's like well you know how to. Heinz how to live in the Bush and you know it'd be a good place for me to hide out and I said okay Well which do you want to go to? You know? Thinking of the spy reserves to to Ottawa. Tanay Guy Kidding. Zv Golden Acres CETERA. And he's like doesn't matter whichever one I can get to you. The quickest right so I kinda thought you know. This is very presumptuous of this new to think that he can just go to arrests. But that was the sort of validation. I needed to write this Justin Scott character because I thought okay. There's one guy who believes this so I can write the story you know but I guess there are a lot more people who think that including a young couple from Quebec willing to drag style meters to like the other end of the land right so weary so back then it spiracy theory exactly you ever imagine like something like this might happen one day when you put your head. Deep into post apocalyptic gorgeous doping fiction. You're always all the possibilities right but I think you never really prepared for the big moments you know when something actually happens and I don't think I could have ever imagined that pandemic to the scale you know like that's sad though like people are slowly started to realize that the world we did living is gone now and what. We're going to emerge in something totally different like we're going to have different ways of life and they're going to be different roles and responsibilities that we all have resulted so I think keeping those things in mind in how resilient indigenous people are especially in overcoming these crises that has prepared mentally in some ways. Although I'm not Maybe not physically or supply wise prepared as well as it should be just in case right so the thing about anyways
Batouly Camara: Awakening in purpose
"A young athlete. I would say the bars set pretty high. The first time I ever saw women play Played on old boy. Seen when I start playing basketball I was introduced to the game by woman but the first game I ever went to the WNBA GAME. Sounds like me so it was like Here in our from probably one hour thing and all girl play Basketball Naseen. Hulo Professional League ignorance is bliss so I would say it was definitely suggests reach my potential. I don't think I ever really said I saw WNBA. I loved it but I think it was to work to kind of reach mile potential with my biggest goal. At that moment I started ages twelve to two things on that day for you said the retail potential. You know so at eight to twelve. What did that look real? Potential potential. Just Matt being at the peak of of my career because when I went to the game what I loved the most was the diversity I saw a core and how every body and just being a young inquisitive curious kid I went from seeing Kia Vaughn. Who's like six five to like? Leilani Melanie Mitchell. Like you know five six. And she's fine with two nasty and I'm like they're not the same but they've all kind of reached their potential in some way. Some regard are now that I'm older Still playing still working on their craft. But at that moment it wasn't about comparison is about personal growth. But once you reach your personal growth you can then get to. The highest level is a lot so when you have the game like I want to be on that day I wanNA share the court in. I WANNA know papillon whatever may be. How do you think I'm GonNa go achieving that it was just this sense of actually had a podcast with my coach? Taught me how to make like a a layup as you say you just have this kind of hunger about you and again. It was just as curiosity. I didn't know I didn't know any of those players didn't know anyone at that level but I just remember how much it it bugged me inside. We know nights where would turn. And I didn't know who go to our coaches at that point in a you in Eugene was so far away but they really allow me to focus on day to day. So that's why did I focused on the day to day and just really just trying to put in as much work as I can control. Though I've learned from like the guests every on that lobby will have today on idolized. You know that might become emulate their game. You Watch like I WANNA learn their moves. It was definitely I say growing up Having older brother the account and learn about the men's game so my brother loved Hakeem he always talked about him. Entering accused dream. You know growing up in a Muslim household. You know the keenest fate than what he stood for. That was initial draw but as I became more fan in sunny if it works that he accused Work in all the grades he's taught than us aren't look more about women in my more and I just remember watching 'em in the final four in little wayne was on the sideline and it was kind of this weird thing where I just loved jives and she just seemed like she's having so much fun with it. Saudi young age I WANNA. I played really admired economy. Idle and at. What point did you think like you? I'm pretty good at this ball like I can. May I have a channel teaching my potential never after like it's definitely a journey but I would say probably junior year high school? I remember walking into? We have open gym. You know humor coaches come in at that point. I was out of okay you know. Tunisia was okay. And we walk in and we have over. I want to say twenty five college coaches and these are just hide the coaches so he has stanford that day Yukon. We had Kentucky all in this building and it was about five of my teammates. Three of us. Who ARE REALLY GOING TAB? The one and so it was kind of surreal feeling as a young kid but one that didn't take lightly. I was nervous. You know I wanted to be good. You WanNa why to perform It was kind of in that moment whereas like all Kayla avalon way to go. But we're taking baby steps now to what kept you grounded Theme like Kentucky is the part that really ongoing even kill. What kind of help you day. You know that it always more than technology do more. I would definitely say the people. I was surrounded by they even from a young age like for example when I was fourteen. That's what I went to Blair Academy and that's Kinda where really developed my skills who I am was a person and one of my teammates. Her name is bridget and a net. Infamy this core group seniors who just had great might. You were now walking into the gym and for me. I was a freshman. I was good. You not do it I wanNA and they shut it down. Bridget graduated top of her class at West. Point so talk about someone with discipline and so she was just very adamant about the process and they will get every day for six. Am workouts on. Like talk to me if I did it and say you know you need to be there so constantly always telling me you've never arrived at his journey and my mentor. The same way. Schnee saying you know you've never robbed it journey in their quick to say you know this which means getting better on With celebrate knee. But also telling me what I need to do better. You never arrive there. The journey That deep at the can take value from two. You know just that you can always return another level. He Never GonNa GonNa read them mountaintop. Yes absolutely yeah so when Tom Day. Chew that college could you? You know you were a one Top Not by one or two on the team so they wanna give you ever that. That's really what you're like number two I in the shooting school you know. How did you go about that first? Half that it was an interesting process and to me. The recruiting process started off trae stressful. You have all these great schools you know. I used to just pray guy. God is Doin' in options. The options were there so I was super fortunate to have that because I would live in. I was in the same room with somebody who didn't even know if they're going to get a scholarship. So that can be Ground level headed but I did enjoy the process because I was thankful for thankful to get to know coaches so pretty early on. I create a pros and cons. I created questions. I asked each coach. How far wants to go? If distance even mattered if conference matter at the time. That didn't matter to me. And so from the merits my top five. It's my top two which was Kentucky and Uconn and I remember taking a visit early in Yukon and then taking a visit to Kentucky about may NFL. At that time I was exhausted. I my one official visit but I was exhausted with the process house. Like I'm completely over. This and I may great connections with Girls Kentucky with the coaching staff Mafia comfortable. So at that point and not sadness so that way you kind of felt the exact same way you can. I guess it was there in front of me if fell right at the moment and so cast okay. I'm going into my senior year of a you and I didn't want to have to choose a wine to be solidified before seeing junior year because at the time that's when they first changed a rule so I wanted to be committed by senior year I was died. I didn't want the pressure anymore and committed end so that was an interesting process so again now the pros and cons list talking to coaches distance cannot into consideration. The one came down that pros and cons What kind of look like for me. Family is everything and people say that lightly but I wanted somewhere where I was going to be there for four years and my biggest fear was transferred out one life. I wanted to make the perfect decision. I wanted a place where players came back growing up A lot of places and I've learned I've learned now what it really means to come back in Soviet with access comeback. Why they don't why they do. Because you can be on the team with twelve people in. Everyone has drastically different experiences. But I really wanted somewhere where a majority of the players came back. I wanted a place with rich history. Not just a yeah. We're GONNA Iran this conference but rich like Deep Kentucky history. You know I love that you call history at WanNa tradition. I felt that was important. Especially after coming for Blair Academy being able to see a loan to connect with them. I love that that was huge to me player development players who play like me who look like me And how they developed over time and again just that relationship piece so two that to me again with academics being able to holistic route players. Who actually talked about being a person versus those who actually developed in the curriculum. They had in place. So were you reading a book to your team. And where were they nurturing their growth from outside of school so different things than to Alone could it wasn't just people based on the name of the school. It was like there was office behind how you're going to fit in how you going to be able to enjoy love the that freshman year at. Kentucky. How'd you describe that? Chapter title that chapter. It is so funny. You know the theme for that summer I remember our first conditional gap the code saying arson conditioning coach. He said we're GONNA name this summer. It's GonNa be expect. The unexpected now is the name of the summer so you know it was crazy. Be expect the unexpected it. So that's exactly what I was saying encompassing of my time I could learn so much as a great people. A tough conference plane. Sec everyday eating there is nothing like your freshman year. There is nothing like I'm always in pain. There's nothing you can get shake off the grind on schoolwork at feels never ending the season that feels never ending but also opening up in exploring new party. Yourself INAU May. I didn't know I had an emmy. I knocking show up in that moment. So deftly wasn't adjustment but it was incredibly awakening experience the same beliefs
Josh Flowers from Aviation101: Tools to Help Avoid CFIT
"I WanNa talk a little bit about Actually kind of bringing in a tool that you and I used I. I didn't brief you on this or anything but a tool that unite us when we flew from battles down to Nanna on our way back. 'cause we got in a situation where we got a close to see fit. I. I'm not sure I'd say close but I I wouldn't it but it started to be car alarm. Bell STARTED GO OFF. We need to get out of it. Basic right so see fit is controlled flight into terrain. We were flying around the mountains. The weather was a little bit. It wasn't even like marginal really when we went in there. But I never considered a The rain could start on top of you and just come down. Which is what happened and then as I was happening we got into an area of smoke and so we kind of got in the situation where almost instantly within two minutes everything went away We were done away. Yeah and we knew that there was rising terrain in front of us. And we're going to want to climb here soon and is like all of a sudden it just kind of faded into like Milky White Mist and it was like okay So it it. We weren't close to see fit. We had so many outs. The the the important thing is our wisdom. Our past experience is what caused us to start setting off alarm bells on our heads individually. I like okay. How do we get out? Let's get out. Let's stop this. What do we do now right? Neither of US had a warm and fuzzy anymore. It went away right and when that happens like you just gotTa go with your gut and we. We were looking at four in the terrain pages and stuff. And we yeah. We had these amazing tools in the cockpit to help us get out of it but ultimately what kept us out of that situation was our aeronautical decision making and judgment to be like this just got way worse than we thought it was going to. We know that there's lower land that way we're GonNa go that way and then sure enough. We go that way and the weather got better and we can see everything yet. Yeah Yeah I mean I. I felt like in that situation where the everything deteriorated so quickly in our alarm bells. Were going off. It was nice to be able to pivot something like four flight Rome. You did a good job in that sense because you you basically looked at the train very quickly and you could see on the terrain adviser like hazard advisor where to go so we basically did a left ninety degree turn and went to lower terrain and it was. It was kind of like river valley that led to to lower landgraf and almost immediately things improved like the rain went away but then we got in the more smoke and then we follow the Yukon River down so it was interesting to to come up against those situations. You have any advice for people. I guess that the get themselves in that situation like 'cause you've been in you've fallen a lot now so you've probably had a dozen situations where it's like okay. Something needs to change. What do we do? So what is your advice for? Someone that is getting into a situation like that right. I think I think one issue is had you get yourself in that situation to begin with but we're talking about like in the plane. They're already in the situation. Worry about debriefing. It later when you're in the plane. What tools do you have to to help you with that? Like even if you've got a garment for thirty bring that thing up to the terrain page and start looking at what you've got around you and of course I just want everybody flies with an IPAD. These days use that become. I've I've run into a lot of pilots and in fact we just had this conversation with my dad about this morning. Dan Greider right now to do this like AAC. Up Recurrent Training series in addressing fatal accident rates and stuff. And we had this long drawn out conversation about when you're going to depart in airport or you're gonNA fly around terrain or fly at night. Anything like that. There is no excuse to not bring up a terrain page of some sort like get turn on the obstacle layer on four flight or bring up the terrain terrain profile or synthetic vision that synthetic vision is awesome. You know if you've got a stratus or a century or in our case we have the garment transponder That talks to the eyepatches brings something like that. Use Your resources not only use your resources but know how to use them effectively. No every little feature And it'll you don't Wanna find out in a situation like that. It's kind of becoming critical almost like life or death critical for you to know these features and know how to access this kind of stuff. You don't want to be figuring out in that moment that you don't know how to access the terrain page or access that vision you know. Sit in sit in bed like before you fall asleep plot your eye powder pull out your phone four flight and just play with it. Learn the new features and of course four flight has all the they've got all sorts of webinars and stuff that an online videos that walk you through all those features but know how to use the tools that are in your cockpit. That's a big. It's a big deal. Yeah is interesting because when when you pull up the map view when we were in that situation I pulled it. The synthetic vision view like right away like an airplane has the ability to pull in the Harz from the airplane so I can actually see. I can't see the synthetic vision on four flight so I pulled that up. You pulled out a route and so we had like instantly a safe way to navigate in case we did go. Imc for some reason even though we were trying to avoid it and then you had an out to get out the other direction. And so exactly I. I think that's it's interesting because you talked about like knocking in the situation in the first place. You know we could rewind the clock on that in in in We could talk about that. We don't need to but it comes on the judgment. I like knowing when things are getting bad and then being willing to like knock it off and do something different right like you have to do something different to get yourself out of that and then you know utilizing tools to assist you in that

Fact that's Myth
"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kent crump in my investigation into the paranormal the metaphysical. I'm lucky net. Ghosts and poltergeists inspectors. I'm lucky psychics. And mediums and clairvoyance from the side of myth and fact yesterday we looked. Pope Joan a female pope on the point of being a myth. That could become a fact today. We're going to look at a fact. That is being regarded as remiss. We traveled from Rome to the Northwest Territories in Canada. It's a South Mahoney in Canada's Northwest Territory and is a world heritage site but it is mostly inaccessible. It missed the ICE age. It is comprised of thousands of square miles. Boreal forests never touched by man. But Hanni river is intersected by four ballets numerous canyons during the great Alaskan Gold Rush than the Hani us. The river was thought to be a shortcut to the Yukon. And that's where the story really begins in Nineteen Five. A young Indian boy emerged from the valley was several gold nuggets that he gave to a local bishop who had them made into a gold chain for his watch fact. That was all it took for. Two young men will in Frank McCloy D- to venture up in the Hani Valley Panning. The various creeks and streams that flowed into the river. They found gold at least according to a diary that was found at the site of their cabin when they hadn't returned by the following year a search party including a third brother said out and found their headless bodies tied to a couple of spruce trees upside down. More fact this was the beginning of the Grizz legend that became headless or deadman's valley from nine hundred ninety six when the bodies were found to nineteen sixty over. Fifty prospectors entered headless valley in search of the MIC. Lloyd's Gold Mine and some vanished and others were found headless more fact headless valley was an area never touched by the great ice age. It is said to be heated by underground thermals than Hani itself passes between thousand foot cliff. Walls areas of the valley are believed to have been a refuge for the woolly. Mammoth a strange bear dog. Like creature called Awadhi La along the cliffs lived Naja Naja Indians that unlike the donets simply vanished so remote as an Hani Bali that fewer than a dozen men have visited this area enter Albert faily born in eighteen eighty eight Minnesota by the age of twenty three. He was running a hundred mile trap. Line along the layered river one of the tributaries leading into the Hani. This was nineteen eleven just six years. After the McCloy brothers headless bodies had been found after decades wondering along the layered. Hani working trap lines as body was no longer up to the task in the mid nineteen fifties s and in his late sixties. Albert failure decided to go after the mkx. Lloyd's Lost Gold Mine. He was a longtime resident of Fort Simpson. And once the ice had left the rivers he would set out in a twenty foot. John Book loaded with supplies for the five hundred mile trip. They would take him to the mouth of what was referred to as headless valley or headless creek the site where the headless bodies of the mkx. Lloyd's had been found all those years ago. Besides the daunting mileage. He portage round. Virginia falls twice the height of Niagara. Falls a task. That would take him a week just to move his supplies. Once above the falls he would build a second boat and continue up the Hani one year. His goal was capsized in rough weather and he almost drowned another trip. Winter set in early while living in a hastily constructed cabin he had gotten scurvy and pulled out several loose teeth with pliers year after year trip after trip. He come up short and half to turn back by nine hundred sixty two. At the age of seventy four. He was still making the trip communist close to forty miles to the McCloy mine. Once confronted by another resident of Fort Simpson. He was asked if he was going to try again. Now remember seventy four. He answered that he would be dead or drown before he would quit on a personal note. I I learned of Albert faily and a headless valley. Forty-eight probably fifty years ago now when he was still making the trip I was in high school. An eighteen minute documentary was made in nineteen sixty two about Albert failure. You can now watch on Youtube. It's an amazing story about an amazing man and this is like a lost world. This is up fact. Pack story yet. A lot of people consider it miss miss about the Naja what happened. These Indians myth about gold mine of the MIC Lloyd's so a fact based story that's regarded as missed and at some point. Someone will find the mine and it will become
Are you tired? Theres a reason, it's Daylight Savings Time
"I I don't know about you guys but I'm tired. Part of that is the ceaseless Rahm of end of the World News. Of course part of. It's just work or family or the everyday things that always get to me by the end of the week and this week in particular there is another reason. I'm tired and you know it. Or at least most of you deal with the exception of most of Saskatchewan and none of it. You Lucky Jerks Canada's sprang forward this week and if this world isn't seem bleak enough now it is once again dark when I leave my house in the morning every year more and more people ask why we have daylight saving time and the calls to abolish it grow louder and now we may in some places be ready to actually do away with except there's about of course there is what happens if some places in Canada eliminate daylight saving time but their neighbors either to the south or to the side. Do not put up some places decide to stay on permanent daylight time and others decide the opposite. What if every province and territory makes their own call and we end up with a maze of time zones the plays hell with scheduling things like sporting events are flights or deliveries. The last thing any of us want is they solution. Daylight saving time ends up making us even more tired. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story. Alex mckean a reporter at the Toronto Star and their Vancouver Bureau and she's Ab. As tired. As I am I out. How are you? I'm tired like I said this time shift always throws me for a loop. Yeah me too. I mean I was actually not only experiencing the time change weekend but I also flew to Toronto and then back to Vancouver so I've got double jetlag going on so your province is perhaps maybe on the verge of getting rid of daylight saving time and we will talk about that but first because this is a really good part of the story. Can you just tell me who is Ray Saunders? Sure Ray Saunders is a gentleman who just recently turned eighty years old and not a lot of people in Vancouver may recognize his name but they certainly would recognize his most famous creation. Refunders the maker of the Gas Count Skin. Kwok which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the entire city of Vancouver. It's this incredible clock that is powered by steam and has whistled plays a tune every I think every fifteen minutes or so tourists come and look at it in the context of this historic part of the city gas town with. Oh it's a it's probable streets and they take pictures with it and Race unders is is the guy that built it. He built it in nineteen seventy seven and for a long time he He maintained it as well. Now it's maintained by the city of in coober but she wrote back walk and two hundred other public clocks in Vancouver Canada and all over the world to we can a year. He goes around to all of the Public Clark's in the city of Vancouver and surrounding area and he has been the guy who's responsible for manual we. Changing those public Clark's to reflect the time change at daylight savings time so He he describes me that during the this spring forward period which just happened this past weekend. Most of the public clocks they'll have kind of a speedup function and so it'll take about Six seconds he said that for the two wine forward an hour to reflect the new delay time and of course the the opposite happens during the fullback period in November. So He's been doing that for twenty years or so. It seems so quaint in a way but this might be the last weekend that he'll ever do it. Tell me about that. Yeah that's right. It might be the last weekend he ever does it And it's you know it's kind of fitting away because as described when we were talking. He's getting older. He unfortunately experienced a fall recently which which made ladder finding a lot more challenging for him. Of course you have to climb up the ladder in order to reach the public bases. So that's part of this task that he's been doing for for the last couple of decades So but personal reasons aside and personal limitations aside He also possibly last weekend that That this kind of topic will be required in the city of in coober because Bc is looking out just mixing the time changes all together And I I think you're right it it is. There is something kind of quaint about it if if I could just describe a little bit about Something that struck me talking to ray was that he has this really interesting relationship with clocks and time so I mean I'm a millennial and I will admits that most of the time that That I'm actually checking the time. I do wear wristwatches but most of the time I'm looking at my computer screen or looking at my phone that's the thing. That's like really intuitive to me. Ray has this this cool relationship with clocks. Where he says look. There's something lost when you're just looking at numbers on a screen. The clock face the circular nature of it the fact that the hands are always kind of moving around the tell us something about the time that has passed and the time that is yet to come. It's more You know accurate to the way that we actually walk through life and I thought that was such a such an interesting idea not anything that I considered at all so I think he his sense of affection for these public clocks in and the analog nature of them really came through so why is British Columbia considering getting rid of daylight saving time and how did that movement sprang up and come to be yeah. It's a great question And different people will tell you different responses as to the origin story of why British Columbia's dealing with this thing but I'm gonNA start with the practical elements of it. Which is the. This is a conversation that it's also happening South of the border in the western state so Washington Oregon California all considering changing to a permanent daylight time and that has pretty significant implications for us here British Columbia because we're coordinated with those states. There's a lot of commerce that happens between those days even things like as work scheduling. That happens along the West Coast and these are things that it makes sense to be in in the same time as them so Washington last fall passed legislation to change their approach to time to permanent. Be Lifetime. And that hasn't happened yet because they need the approval by the The Federal Congress there in order to make it happen but our premier John Horrigan Here British Columbia was in conversation with Governor of Washington State and said look. Maybe this is something. We're interested in in British Columbia is well. It's something that the the government launched a public consultation on. They sent out a survey and they received within the first month or so. They received more completed surveys than they ever have in the history of all public consultations on on this topic of changing to permanent daylight time so they received two hundred and twenty three thousand completed surveys Colombian yeah and overwhelmingly ninety. Three percent of people said get rid of it. We don't want time changes anymore. We just want a permanent time. Is that something that we see elsewhere in the world You mentioned it's happening already on the west coast of the US but also some parts of Canada. Don't have it as well. That's true and you know after I published this story on what? Bc is doing. I got quite a lot of emails from folks in Saskatchewan because the way described it in the story was that Scotch Wayne is on permanent central standard time but both insist on reminded being over over email but in fact according to the line to Scotch. When is that? It should be on mountain time zone for the same time zone as Berta so the fact that it's on permanent central standard time actually means that it's it's more on a permanent stay like time similar to what? Bc is trying to do so it all gets a little bit confusing but since nineteen sixty six scotch and has been the Canadian exception to this time. Change practice that we have been doing and the they've been on the most places in Scotland. Anyway have been on permanent central standard time. Alberta has considered it. I understand that there's also a private member's bill In Ontario on this topic. So if it's something that people are increasingly aware of but the one that I has really caught my attention in the last couple of weeks was the Yukon because of course the Yukon is also a jurisdiction along the west coast. And they've already pulled the trigger. They said okay. We went to move the clocks forward an hour this past weekend. And we're not going to change them again. It's just GonNa stay dot so Yukon. Who is the one that's most recently has actually made the changes that British Columbia is talking about? Making what is the case in this day and age for daylight saving time? Can
Breaking Down Bracketology
"I do WanNa flip the page to Rica's point some teams. That have worked very hard to get to this point. We've got eleven teams. Charlie that have punched their ticket so far to go dancing any surprises for you in the ache you I think we have one out. West correct so In the last couple of days of the West Coast Conference Tournament Portland is your winner. And they will now go to the tournament. they upset didn't zag in the semifinals and they will catch a little bit of. Portland's game yesterday in the championship when I flew into Vegas and they're upset of of Gonzaga disrupted. That's the surprise. It's SORTA disrupted the bubble a little bit because when you when you take it to my Portland who was not going to make it as an at large but Gonzaga certainly is well now the WC goes from having one team in the field to two teams in the field. Well he can only still sixty four teams so someone has to come out of the field to accommodate Portland's entrance and that affects the at large teams on the bubble and in the case of my bracket that not Boston College. Back out of the field. Who just a day earlier had slid into the field because there was another loss by someone else so everything with this in the championship weeks at circumstances everything affects something else because it's a numbers game. It's a sixty fourteen field no matter how you slice it so going forward and these next few days. We've got some other tournaments that could affect that in the same way and I mentioned this going back a week or so ago that their watch out for the bids steelers because there are certain mid majors that we know we're going to be in the field. They've earned the right to be in. The field is at large teams if they don't also go in there if they don't go in AH automatic qualifiers by winning their tournament. Well then that's an extra team that we didn't account for and brackets and that's an extra team now that the committee has to put into the field. That's one less team that can make it from some of these bubble team. So yeah the the big upset so far has been in the West Coast Conference in Gonzaga. Not Winning it and we've got some more to look forward to. The MAC happens to be one of those tournaments where there's not going to be. Any fans will central Michigan won the league pretty decisively. This year is a top twenty. Rpi team and most assuredly will make the field but now that tournament played before no one could be one of those that affects how the bubble teams go to central Michigan. Does it also come on? Come out on top in the tournament So that's that's certainly one for fans to watch as we go forward and you're GONNA have to watch it on TV because you're not gonna be able to buy it you're watching on TV though you will hear my voice. I'm on the call on Saturday for the championship. And the more reason to tune in now on the game and you can't get into the arena so the ratings should be sky high. Now it's via going okay. So I want to over to the big twelve. Charlie would where I know actually had a chance to call some big twelve games this year and I know. Tcu In particular was a team that was really making a push. I believe there in the field as it stands right now but I was state actually Jones. Who's a certified buck gator? They upset Baylor over the weekend which was a huge deal. I did a double take when I got the alert. Baylor is bailer their legitimacy. It probably doesn't change anything for them. But what does it do for Iowa State? Well I always stayed. I had as a tendency leading into that game and and it pushed him to a nine. And what that does is it's security. It's cushion because of the ten seed. Maybe the committee views them a little differently. Not Quite not quite at that level so that he's talking about eleven seed. Well that's a vulnerable team to some of the upset potential. We just talked about so what that win for Iowa State. I think is put to rest any question that they'd be in the field although I think there was a big one anyway but it but it certainly nails it down and they no longer would have. I don't think any anxious moments watching the selection show on Monday Now it's just GonNa be a matter of where do they go? And whom do they play? But I think that's what did for for I would say for sure and it would what it did do for. Baylor though while not it's not gonNA knock him out of a one seed it. Does maybe raise some questions. I personally didn't think that there was anything to worry about with. Frankly there weren't a lot of flaws there but the big twelve not not one of the better leagues in the country this year of the power. Five Leagues I think it's probably fifth and they haven't been severely tested in a while and I always say certainly did that and the it might raise some question marks about Baylor going forward. I think they can answer any of those questions in the big twelve tournament because I was sneaking suspicion. They're going to come out with a little extra in that game and it could be ugly for the other. Big Twelve teams In the big twelve tournament but that said it does it. It shows little vulnerability that I didn't think Baylor had and that makes it a little more intrigued when we get to the tournament. Time itself I agree with you one hundred percent. I know look at the box. Were trying to figure out what the deal was. And nothing really was like crazy glaring. But I do think you're right. I know a ton of folks are going to be studying that tape to see what I was able to do right well that was able to watch some of that game and when I did was really slow the Temple. They hope to threes in the second half. They made more threes than they made. Twos in the game and the believer and it was and it was so slow paced and Baylor never found a rhythm that they they say clog everything inside the Lauren Cox had almost no room to move it. Kinda dared the Baylor shooters to shoot and they just had one of those games where they weren't making shots so maybe at least down a blueprint for some other teams as to how to at least approach Valer Ago You mentioned as an example Yukon being a number two seed and I know over the past few years you have seen to have had all these regional conferences in such a favorable area. I think at the Albany region that they mostly have been seated but this year they would be projected number two in the Portland region and I think as much as we talk about Yukon not being the same Yukon is as pass. There's still a very good basketball team. Won thirty nine. Oh in their conference over these last few years in the American and I think that having them with the possibility of travel really makes this team look a little different because they aren't the same team as years pass. Tell us a little bit about how that could affect their performance. Assuming they make the sweet sixteen you're right and Seven out of the last eight years. They've either played in Albany. Bridge for for Kingston Rhode Island. So they they have not had to get on an airplane until the final four in seven out of those those eight years. But let's let's be honest earned it ju- every one of those years with the possible exception of last year because they were the best team in the country in those years too so and when when cities bid for these regionals it just so happened that that all those years those particular low cows bid and got regionals to be able to host. And you can't happen to be close so this year. Those regionals are don't exist. There is no Albany. There is no Kingston. There is no bridgeport and no matter what was going to have to get on an airplane. And you're right. I think it will look a little bit. Different seeing a yukon in a faraway place. I don't think it's going to impact on the whole Locke. Though to be honest I think the people that are bothered by the possibility of uconn going West are the players and the coaching staff. Everything I've heard from them is like. Hey we'll bring it on. We'll play wherever we'll play whomever we'RE NOT THAT CONCERNED ABOUT. Gino's been been pretty adamantly over the years but this year when the subject's soon kinda shrug your shoulders. Look I you know. I don't have any control over it and we'll go play and it will do what we do and I think he said the other night after the the American championship game. We'll do what we do. I hope I think That's sort of the philosophy that they're gonNA take me. Maybe their fans aren't happy and maybe people who who look at the tournament and see certain things as they view them. Unfair that a team that is fifth overall. My take would be the one that has to travel. Based on the fact that other teams can can drive to the region. So we'll get into the reason why you would be going to Portland is very simply that The NC Double A. Would prefer as much as possible that teams that can drive rather than fly two games that they're gonNA play It's written right in the procedures principles of putting the bracket together that mode of transportation distance from campus. Things that they consider will this year Louisville can drive the Fort Wayne Regional? Nc State can drive to the Greenville regional. So if you assume that those are those are two of the other number number two seeds. Then they're going to be plotted in those regions and then the other one being Stanford and Stanford mashed up with Oregon would would also violate one of the principles of putting the bracket together and they They try to keep teams seeded on the top four lines from the same conference separate. So they're so they're in different regions. They wouldn't even meet until the final four now. In this case the fact twelve might have five teams in top sixteen making that impossible but in years past when that's happened the committee's not put one a one and a two. They've put fit when a four again. So it's highly highly unlikely that Oregon at Stanford Movie Place Together which only leaves one region left for Yukon to go to which is Portland matched up with. Oregon is the one in the two. So that's the why behind it and I think we talked about the the what or in the case of I think the Yukon players coaches the. So what I don't know that they that it matters to them very much but it does create an interesting conversation around how the tournament is bracketed. And some of these rules. That maybe fans aren't quite as aware of in the the head-scratching that I get from from fans and social media. Say Well if you cons five. They should be matched up with the number four overall team based on the curve. And that's Maryland so they should be going to Fort Wayne. Well we don't ever. The S curve is used to plot the teams in the tournament. But it's not used strictly to place them in these numerical matchups one in eight go together. Two and seven go together. It's never worked that way. It doesn't work that way in the men's tournament. The committee will try to do that as much as possible. That's the goal. But if you've got these graphical instances at hand as well then there there's other ways to balance the bracket and. That's I think what's going to happen. This year with

Bathsheba Demuth: Environmental Historian
"This episode of is on Conservation I spoke with author and environmental historian Bethsheba. Demuth Demuth is an assistant professor at Brown University who specializes in the intersection between humans. Ecosystems ideas in history the work that I do as an environmental historian is broadly focused on the North American and Russian Arctic and particularly the relationships between people and animals and people in Ecosystems. More broadly over the past two hundred years or so. We talked over. Skype demuth was in fairbanks as the professor was performing research for her new book. Her first book is titled Floating Coast and Environmental History of the Bering Straits. Npr called it. A quote deeply studied deeply felt book that lays out a devastating complex history of change notes. What faces us now and dares us to imagine better in quote as we proceed and get into this interview. I will note that I spoke with Professor Demuth while she was at the university library so it can be a little loud in the background at times. It's a busy place. I can promise you however that this will be one of the most compelling and interesting accounts of the history of whaling that you had ever you look so cold yes. It's a little chilly up here. What's the what's the weather like right? Now it's actually a pretty Balmy day today. It's about twenty degrees. It was about fifty degrees colder here last week. You've you've draw the line pretty much anything around ten. Just can't do it for me of all the things that makes this whole conversation. That much more interesting demuth was actually drawn to the Arctic in her young adult life and even lived in the Yukon for two years. And yes doing all the things that you're imagining right now tracking bears hunting. Caribou FISHING SALMON. And yes even. Husky Mushin Dog sledding and no. I'm not making that up. She's that for real your your first journeys out there. If I understand right was your running dog sled yes so when I was eighteen I decided to take a gap year as we. Now call them although they weren't really called then And went to a little community north of the Arctic Circle in the Yukon territory to be a dog handler which is basically an apprentice to somebody who has a dog team and I knew nothing about sled dogs. When I moved up there I was eighteen so I thought I knew something about things but I really didn't. And that was my first introduction to the Arctic. Okay and how long you said you do that for two years. Yes do you. Do you still remember how to do it? I mean I. It's kind of like riding a bicycle except in this particular case. You're working with dogs so you can remember how to do the physical pieces of it but you also need to have a relationship with animals. You're working with so. I'm sure that if I had a team and I spent a lot of time with them would would all come back because I would be making that relationship with dogs but I'd like a bicycle. You can't just grab one and go right right. Yeah that makes sense You don't have to get to know your bike. I right I probably ended up working appear because my dad read me too much Jack London when I was a kid. So there's definitely a literary connection in there now. I could do a really poor job of basically giving it a synopsis of the Book. Or I'm sure it would be much more articulate coming from you Tell us a little bit more about the Soviet whaling And more specifically what you found so fascinating a about that topic. Yes the book that I published. Just this past fall called floating coast looks at basically the the past two hundred years or so along the Bering Strait both the Russian Arctic and in the US Arctic. It's a it's a two country history but because it's an environmental history in some ways it's a history of no country because it's looking at processes an an animals that don't really matched onto nation state borders and the the the project is kind book ended no Pun intended by could have two episodes of large scale whaling the first one being in the nineteenth century for market whalers capitalist wailers most of them coming from New England in fact some of them from where I now live in Providence. Who were coming up to kill bowhead. Whales for oil for lamp oil mostly and then the book closes with a couple of chapters about Soviet whaling in the twentieth century. Which in many ways is just the socialist analog to the to the capitalist wailing in that it is Quite excessive it kills whales far outside their capacity to to reproduce. And keep keep up with the demand and those kind of frames of the book in some ways. Show the things that I found really interesting about this part of the world as a historian. Who's interested in the ways that people's ideas influence the environments? They live in and vice versa. Which is that. It's a it's a place that has a very similar ecology on both sides of the Bering Strait. If you drop down on the peninsula or the seward Peninsula Chukchi Peninsulas in Russia and the seward Peninsula's in Alaska. He can't really tell one from the other right. And let's you know the place extremely well. Because the the flora and the fauna in geology are really comparable but of course in the twentieth century. It gets split by these two big economic ideologies that imagine each other in opposition. Which is you know. Capitalism and socialism. So it's kind of a natural experiment to see how these two ways of managing environments in some sense that the Soviet Union the United States brought with them interact with Arctic species and in the case of Wales they do it very similarly which is more or less trying to kill everywhere they possibly can ya. It's like it's kind of shocking especially when you talk about like as a concern of how many whales are being impacted or what that's doing to the ecosystem comes up that the answer kind of always came back to will. Don't worry. Technology will save us from. That will deliver a positive outcome. Okay can you elaborate on that? Yes this was one of the really interesting commonalities I found between two groups of whalers who were operating hundred years apart from each other or more and in two extremely different cultural and economic contexts is at the end of nineteenth century moby. Dick STYLE TALL SHIP. Whalers call me. Ishmael an ordinary seaman before the mast on the good ship check. What found out a man on Christmas Day of the year? Eighteen forty four on a thousand days. Voight very aware that when they entered a new population of Wales and a piece of the ocean that they hadn't been hunting in before that they would they called. Wailing it out or fishing it out that they would kill off an enormous number of the animals that were that were available locally and that they were doing this and getting further and further from home. So they're aware and using the word extinction by the end of the nineteenth century but at the same time as they're talking about extinction they're basically saying well if we put in place some technological Improvements if our ships get faster. If we're more able to navigate around the sea ice will be able to still catch these whales and there was this kind of belief that because Wales were really intelligent. And all of the whalers nudists and talk about this in detail that there were more whales. They were just shy or had gotten smart and were hiding in new places. So there's actually a couple of lines in Moby Dick Melville talks about you know the whales are just hiding behind the Arctic Sea ice and then after the Second World War the Soviet Union sort of follows the same pattern in that they have very sophisticated marine biology by that point in many ways the the research that so the marine biologist or doing is ahead of what's happening in the United States particularly when it comes to studying ways that whales are social animals and able to communicate vocally with each other They're they're way ahead of what's happening in English. Speaking Countries but at the same time as an aware that that the populations of wheels are dropping but at the same time. They're convinced that as long as they just kind of keep putting more technology online. They're going to be able to keep killing

"Hello I'm John. NEFF global editor in chief of motor one and welcome to motor one this week. The weekly podcast from motor one. We're going to go over. Some of the the most significant coolest stories of the week and joining me today is senior editor Jeff Peres. How're you doing Jeff? Good John How are you great. Thanks and like we had had last week writer Christopher Smith. How're you doing Chris doing good? What's up my motoring friends not much? Now I'M GONNA turn to you for the first story because you've been following all of the Corvette News. That's been coming our way as well as the five hundred news so we talked about both cars little last week but in the last seven days more news stories. So what's the first word on the quarterback that happened this past week. The first word on the corvette is three million. And that's a big word. That's well it's a small word actually actually but it's a lot of coin. That's three million dollars. That was the auction price for the two thousand. Twenty Corvette Stingray Vin zero zero one. That is the I production car technically. They haven't built it yet. The car that was at Barrett Jackson is just a You know it's one of the earlier models and yeah three million dollars huge money obviously for the corvettes You know it's the first mid engined corvette ever. It's honestly all bets were. We're office to what it might bring. Just because I mean this is this is like over fifty years in the making right and of course it went to Rick Hendrick You know big. Gm Motor Sports Guy. Nascar Guy I think. He has quite a few bear Jackson fines in his collection. And of course it all went to charity so you know I was wondering if for her for wealthy guy like that usually when they're at Barrett Jackson and they're buying cars. The cars are investments right. They're looking at it as a gun appreciate am I gonNa make money on it with one this this. It's gotta be part. You know. This is just a good way to give charity and part it's an investment but I wonder if I if this I see eight corvette is really gonNA appreciate over three million dollars over time like three million dollars a hell of a lot of money. I mean yeah if he keeps it for like ninety years and it shows up in a barn somewhere. uh-huh sure it'll be more than three million dollars don't so the the takeaway here is don't store it in an ice garage like stick it in your barn. Don't put a cover on it. That's how appreciate appreciate the best way the best way to appreciate a car but let me let me give an example of another car. That went for a similar price separate Jackson which was the original bullet Mustang that also sold for. I think it was two point. Seven million before the fees are factored in that was the the One of the original cars that was used to shoot the movie bullet and was in a barn. For a long time and resurfaced not even restored and it sold for two point seven million so all these cards are gone for huge money. But Man I this one I. I don't know if I like I said if I'm a wealthy guy like Rick Hendrick. I don't know what's my motivation to help. People people purely or to invest in something or both and I wonder does he get a tax write off for the whole thing since it goes to charity. That that's a pretty sweet we deal. I mean you're talking about charity and and just to back up really quick. The bullet was actually mecum. Oh that's right weeks earlier and it was. It was three point. Point four MIL. After before the fees we generally like to quote non including the fees because different auction places. I mean they can have different commissions and whatnot but yeah you're right. I mean similar money and a lot of people. Were questioning that as well. It's like is that really an investment. I mean will people all twenty thirty years from now that maybe never even heard of the movie. Just be like what is this old Green Mustang. You know and I want that one to me is kind of dumb. The bullet one like that movie is already sort of outdated. Oh yeah well it's very outdated but then it just move into the realm of classic classic movie. Well I mean when you people that are in the Mustang world and that muscle that sixties muscle car car world. They're the ones that are into it. And that's where a lot of the question comes from. Will there still be enough of those people around in your money. Your thirty years to even care about this in a high water mark I think for the prices of classic American cars like Muscle cars. I think think you're absolutely right. And you know whether the C eight whether that'll be worth more than three million. I mean it's it's so hard to say we don't this is is new ground for Chevrolet. This is new ground for the corvette. It's isn't just a new generation. It's a completely revamped car with the engine behind you so if if I think the next the next five or ten years will really tell the tale if the car turns out to be a real stinker. Nobody's GonNa Care Dr who has the first one but if they sell they sell so many of them that they're not kind of exclusive and and they don't hold their prices as well. I think that happened with some of the some of the other quarterbacks like this sixes and C. Fives you can get for dirt cheap. And they're great. They're Great Bang for the bucks. I don't know if that will happen with the c the eight just because it's kind of moved from the realm of sports car kind of supercars so yeah we'll we'll have to wait and see it was a it was a good price. I'm glad it all went went to charity. That's always good news and we'll probably have a big piece of corvette news to share every week at this right. That's how it seems seems things are going. The speaking of American cars and cars we talked about last week there's another great video the GT five. Hundred was released this week wanting to tell us about that to Chris I've been following. Gt five hundred as well and an edmonds. Did it a neat lineup. That everybody's been waiting for since the GT five hundred finally returned. Okay it's Detroit's big hitters. It's it's the Dodge challenger Hell cat the seven hundred ninety seven horsepower. Red Eye not the not the regular healthcare but the big one Against the Chevy Camaro marrow zeal one and the GD these are the top dogs for Ford for GM for Dodge and Mustang wins. It's but it's not that simple because you're talking about once again. An unprovoked surface. They're just out on on on a big stretcher role. What it wasn't a runway because it had it had like lane markers so yeah I don't know what road they were using but yeah it wasn't a drag strip so it was kind of like a on prep road of untapped road closed conditions? Of course I mean they're not they're not out street in these guys. Want to be clear on that but I mean they they lined up several times and GT five hundred somewhat. Surprisingly I think for a lot of people One each contest and won it quite handily and it kind of goes back back to the whole you can have your stats on paper. That doesn't necessarily translate to the real world and and in fact the Camaro was even very competitive with the Challenger and I know it's probably going to hurt some even though the stores. The camera was down on horsepower to both of them right right and and you know let's go to hurt some of the some of the private for some dodge guys but once again you're talking about a car that really is designed to launch hardheaded had a drag strip with the Challenger and it doesn't always translate to real world that's not saying that the challenger is like a slow boat anchored by the fast and and in some of these races the Challenger got out of the whole quicker than everybody else which is actually pretty surprising. Considering they're they're trying to get that much power down some of the issue according to the video was that. Hey you know once things are rolling okay. Now they're really trying to make use of all that seven hundred ninety seven horsepower. The car is still spinning. Its tires one hundred miles an hour. Wow No so I mean the five hundred I think I think this is showing. Gt Eighty five. Hundred is just really able to get its power to the ground. A little bit better. I think you know when I look at those three cars. I look at the Camaro and the five hundred as cars who were very thoroughly designed to take advantage of all of their power and every other component of the cars well together gather with the Challenger as as we've noted before it's dodge just doing the best with what it's got that's an ancient car and they're putting the these monster monster motors in it as more of a marketing thing and to build an image so I'm not surprised at the Challenger get gets beat by the five hundred even though it has more horsepower And I even though the the Camaro lost the race as I'm impressed it did as well as it did I just like seeing it man to have to have three three American American muscle cars with that much horsepower drag racing side by side by side Super Super Cool to watch well. It's interesting I was. I would say that the challenges obviously built for straight lines right. That's always been its purpose. two zero one Camaros kind of more retract car than both of them. I think But then the Showbiz like right in the middle so the shelby super good on the track but they also really emphasized like quarter Mile Times. Yeah so oh. It's not totally shocking. To me that the shelby one because that thing is stupid quick in a straight line and I gotTa Give Ford Credit you know has the as we were leading up to the You know the first drives for the five hundred finally getting seat time Ford was saying. Hey We've designed this car to outrun the challenge of the drag strip out handle Camaro on the track. We still haven't really seen well. I take that back we have seen some. Gt five hundred track performance against the Porsche nine eleven gt three. I gotTa Give Ford Credit. It seems like the car does exactly what they were saying. It's going to do it. Yeah it's it's much it does both well it does both straight-line speed and ah I think while it's not as good in the corners as like the Porsche nine eleven you just referenced it holds its own it holds its own well enough to keep up and that's go all around. I think it's all around a better car than either. The CAMARO were the challenger. I think you guys give the Challenger too much credit when you say it was designed for straight line speed though. I don't think it was designed designed for anything. I think that is riding on on just really good product planning right now. And they're just shoving bolts and parts bolting parts to it and bigger motor like whatever they can and to get them out the door and they're fun but I don't think they're they don't have engineers pouring over how well. Maybe maybe they do. I but there's a lot of engineering genera that went into the demon to make it. Oh the demon of germ lift. Its front wheels off the ground. And I mean it's still a challenger you can. You can still bolt up slicks and in writing tweak this suspension a little bit on pretty much any challenger and get it to do that. I'm just saying dodge isn't putting the development dollars into the challenger that Ford's putting into the five hundred or Chevy Camaro like those budgets are wildly different so well let's keep moving. Jeff I want to turn to you because so you were at the the debut of the new GMC Yukon which we talked about last week and this really weird feature popped up that they're going to offer it's called a hurricane turn What is a hurricane turn yes so hurricane turn essentially just allows you to spin the Yukon in circles? If you're on mud or snow or something thing like that If you remember if you weeks ago riven had a video where they announced a take a tank turn feature for their pickup which which is essentially the same thing. We're just spin a circle and it uses the electric motors at each wheel to spin. The wheels individually I guess the front wheels go one way in the back wheels. Go another wait. I think it's the driver side. Wheels go one way and the side. We'll go one way so Indians case it's spinning completely in place like it's not a doughnut. where it's going in a circle it's like it's like right twirling like like a skid steer which actually that's where they get the name skid steer you'll have one side going in one direction the other side going in the other the direction right so so? GMC oddly didn't announce this at the launch. They didn't talk about it at all. until someone I'm on ask someone from motor trend asked and they said They called it a hurricane turn which is essentially the same thing as the riven. Though obviously it's a little different because as the Yukon is still gas powered vehicle and it doesn't have an electric motor on each wheel so the way they do it. Is You essentially turn off the stability control. You crank the wheel all the way to one side and you just hammer the gas and I guess when you do that you don't really have to push any buttons when when you do that. The car sort of knows what you're doing so it'll lock up the brakes depending on which we are going to keep the car you know in a perfect little Is Circle from what I understand like. Let's say you you jerk the wheel all the way to the left and floor it. It'll break the two wheels on the driver's decide on the bright and witty and then the wheels on on the passenger side we'll be turning and basically like dragging that side of the vehicle around the center point. Yeah exactly it's kind of like..

"But we just walks accurately. Kind of limited in what you can. Take in in that sense canoes a really luxurious. Now, we had we had Chas spice rack, we met may bread in the evenings. Did he committee Pat climb in that which which we had to have about? So a six weeks worth of this said time because there's just very few places to stock up along the way each village does have a little stove it. It's pretty pretty stoked because everyone needs villages relying on on subsistence foods in whether that salmon, Musso, berries, or whatever it might be and people would supplement on diets of people, which would give US Fish in meets in indecent pieces. This is real kind of culture hospital not in shaving Demetz will people have of what to give and it was a mix rainy days. So so of the journey was by myself, I was win at the beginning with old Scottish gentlemen, and then the second half of the with partner early. Sometimes we be in villages and spend a few days in villages in might be a week of paddling between villages and we'd see no one. Said that was camping up beaches in the evenings setting attend making fi cooking dinner, providing the whole process in the morning in loading the canoeing carrying on again. Does that say up sickly when it's talk about what you come across an island with I an old rotting huddle steam. Yeah. One of the things that really strikes you especially being on the Canadian side of the Yukon, which was so renowned for the conduct gold rush. Which is an end of the nineteenth star of the twentieth. Century is a real sensitive of time guy in reverse in use to this day of progress in ways more stuff more things in more human influence in less than less wild space in the rest of it. But hair that really flips on his head a hundred years ago, you could get paddle steamer white Holson catch it down river to to city public transport in the river because the hundreds of thousands of people came from the goldrush now, you might find as you say abandoned, paddle steamer just routing because it didn't become viable to run it anymore. These old telegraph wise that let alone eleven for parts new you might stop and camp on the beach one night and find some abandoned log cabin with old tin cans Mondays ago. So the real sense that so of human influence on that. Of the at least his his is really peaked in his Stein guy with us now. But the indigenous coaches by the down it is very different. But historically in the sense of the goldrush yet really feels like that. So of moment on the Yukon his peaked before you sat out. Did you have any reservations about what you might encounter on the way? And I'm thinking particularly of a Baz. Yeah. Absolutely. We it's very hard to be on the Yukon in Alaska in Canada, without without having bands of background fear in your mind, the time, and you always kinda know that you'd be very unlucky. Then that awful story last week about the about the mother baby being being killed by grizzly in just last week. So so it doesn't happen and. And you can really do about it. You know, we had them. They find people to carry these industrial size cans of pepper spray said we had that we have to try and scare them off. But it's yet is is deafening always Accu mind beyond trying to second guess them. And find a good place to camp way. You hope they wouldn't be in being with your foods gaps in in very good routines washing. I'm straight off the on that kind of thing in the end, the the real danger of the was was not a bad.

The I actually went to Alaska was in twenty thirteen I was dead rallying because I'd always been looted there, but was sensitive said environmental journalist and traveled over the state in a couple of months in one of the stories I picked up on his invited out onto the Yukon custody crime delta, which is far west Alaska, and I was invited there by guy might Williams who was then chief of the big nation and aided in Ovid's, very remote. But to get that you had to fly through this town called Bethel and Mike said it was a try on in town at the time in the phase that he said that stuck in my head was that Gandhi had is. We have on summoned, and I sat in on this case of peace about it for the Atlantic. And it was these twenty three ubiquitous woman who will try because they go out and fished when there was a ban on the catching of kings and the Alaska department of fishing game put this down on because this massive crashing Sam numbers in the past few years and the defending themselves, and that was understood that it was there that traditional practice, almost spiritual heritage fish defending themselves in the first amendment who the light to factors that religion. And it felt to me not to that different ways of looking at the wellbeing forced up against each other in this state land tick, but it felt to me that there was this much bigger story to be told what restrictions of input in place. So when I was in twenty thirteen the story was kind of focused on this one small part of actually a river, just slightly south of the Yukon the Cusco Quinn. I came back to follow the story in twenty fourteen in twenty fifteen it was a fishing ban on the entire length of the Yukon river. That's too. Thousand miles at SCA and going into Canada, which is totally unprecedented. Never happened before amount was a ban on catching not just commercial fishing, but also subsistence so would indigenous people that rely on it for the menu harvests. And that that's a blanket ban has been pullback slight announced try and get a balance between indigenous fishing and protection. Sam is will Wade conservative at the moment. There's a number of species of Pacific, salmon, particularly are obviously digital to Alaska, but your book is mainly concerned with what's called the king salmon, tell us about that face. What's special about it? Yes. It was in on the Atlantic. Brioni, Hans one type of salmon on the five and have kind of different niches and the king of the the biggest ones that travel furthest, and they used to be absolutely enormous specimens eighteen ninety one hundred pound fish when on common. The biggest fish of the biggest king salmon ever caught on line was the same. Wait is the limit of Fenway books, which gives you some of ideas of how big they used to bait and December that travel furthest in the world's on the Yukon and ones that travel very furthest to give an idea that nice cycle that Bowen way way way up with the the furthest one of the travel born in place McNeil lake which is almost two thousand miles from the spending first year up in this lake, and then they'll just down with the cone guy out to the Pacific and feed off the coast of Japan going up to northern Russia would the Pacific and then in the last few months of their lives that will return to the Yukon and swim against the Covent..

I think we've been mentioning in the intro of every podcast. You're hearing right now that these recordings place during women's college basketball national media day at ESPN on Bristol campus, which Rican I actually got to be in the same place, which was nice. Can you imagine? I can you believe this even though like she just does other stuff while I'm talking. So I kept trying to look at her. And she's on her phone, whatever she doesn't care.

But there was just so much going on on this particular day because the WNBA players association was in the process of making their decision about whether or not they were going to opt out of the collective bargaining agreement which they ultimately did. So I was able to get genus thoughts on it. And he had some very interesting thoughts on the WNBA on this conversation about equal pay not really equal pay in. We actually get into some of that as well. But just pay equity in the WNBA some of the issues they're facing. We also talked about growing fans in. Whether or not college basketball fans in WNBA fans are one of the same or could be one of the thing or should be one of the same. So we jump into that a little bit. Which there was an interesting story that GIO tells about the Connecticut sun fans, booing former Yukon huskies, which I didn't realize that took place, but very very cool stories from him in thoughts on the WNBA in general. You know, what I thought about when he said that what I thought about Diana to Rosie when she played when they when the Phoenix mercury play Connecticut just this past playoffs. And how there were so many people that were still in the crowd cheering her booing her at the same time..
