Four pancreatic cancer so remembering the man with all the answers. Now extra bet you showed up in our households more consistently than any relative. Alex trebek's was not a game show host. He was like a friend today. The athletics match schneiderman on the connection between jeopardy host. Alex trebek's and packers quarterback aaron rodgers as a kid you grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person is really special for rodgers star combination having a connection to somebody s the meaningful stall. But when you meet that person they have the president and the charisma that you have hoping they and definitely athletic. I'm davidson and i'm under sculptor. It's friday november thirteenth. And this is the lead so matt you recently talked to aaron rodgers about role that jeopardy has played in his life. What was his experience with the show. Growing up yeah. He told me about how when he was a little kid. He'd be staying at his grandparents house finished dinner early. And you retire to living room for jeopardy and grandpa's in his grandma's hurt sure i'm on the ground and that's just kind of a we. Did he was so devoted to this show from a young age and then he kinda grew to appreciate it more and he's a really intellectual savant. I guess you could say big trivia buff so that kind of drew him to it and alex trebek's became one of the iconic voices of his childhood a connection with certain people for my show and i've been fortunate enough to meet a few of them but it's kinda voices on my gv. I'm talking about john. Men summerall about how frank. And then on. Monday nights before bob barker on prices riot as he got into the league he said even if there would be obligations tend to in green bay on weeknights. He would record it. I mean literally friends of mine and visit dated. Six o'clock at my house is by had any friends over. If i was dating someone. If i had any family in town they knew that six. Pm in green bay was jeopardy time. So they'd better not make any other obligations so he was a real deal jeopardy diehard what stood out to him about alex trebek's as a game show host. He said really his cadence and his sense of humor and his ability to not make fun of but have a great back and forth with. The contestants are really enjoyed the often awkward coming into the first commercial. It'd be the contestants is reaction to so many of them is what made this show so great. Now just the thank you often have some nerds out. There were really nervous about what they do. It's called mary. Core hip hop it murdered. Core hip hop. It's people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things. They love video games science fiction having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It's really catchy. And fun losers. In other words. I know teasing you. And roger said that nature of trebek's the one that was playful with the contestants and related to them a little bit rather than just being a robot reading off of a sheet because it was his job for thirty minutes every night was what drew him to him so much before he became a professional. Football player did aaron rodgers do trivia. Was he the guy at the bar at trivia night. I'm sure he was. You know he's been on a couple of game shows. You probably know it then on multiple shows jeopardy hundred dollar ear man. Eight small felt things on a billiard table lopez jennifer lawrence i. I'm sure when he went to cal berkeley and he was the big man on campus there as the quarterback he was still going to trivia night at bars. I mean he challenges himself intellectually in a lot of different ways. I did a story with him last year seeing if he could name all thirty seven players. He's turned touchdowns to in his career. Rodgers could remember the exact route. Some no name tight end ran in two thousand and eleven. Because that was the tight ends only touchdown pass from rodgers so it was really impressive. Seeing how much he's able to remember and his abilities as a quarterback. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say his ability to process information and remember kind of the tendencies of certain defensive. Players definitely transfers over to a game show. Aaron got the chance to meet. Alex trebek's five years ago when he was a contestant on celebrity jeopardy. What was it like for him to meet the game show host. He grew up watching yet. It was big for him. Because you think aaron rodgers you know. You wouldn't be florida starstruck by anyone. This was in two thousand fifteen when he met. Alex trebek's super bowl. He'd already one to mvp's but aaron said he was the one of the few people that left me starstruck. And i think to be star star can have stayed combination of having a connection to somebody. That's that's deep. Meaning for a stall jack but when you meet that person they have the presence in the charisma then you kind of hope they would and you definitely did i so excited trying to keep it together as a kid. He grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person it was really special for rodgers and he just loved more so than anything. How down to earth travek was how conversational he was. It wasn't something like okay. You're here on my show getting your position and i'll do my job. He was the guy you think he is on tv. All the things that make you feel like you care about the conversation. I'm talking about old school stuff. I'm talking about striking yet. Shaking your hand looking. I contact in the conversation. I felt like present in the moment. So aaron rodgers this trivia. Buff jeopardy fanatic. It's finally on the show. How did he prepare for it. Was he like in a room going over tape. His preparation for this show was unbelievable. He was watching. Not just the ken jennings and brad rudders of the world. But he was watching random contestants just to see how they approached the game. He watched tape of other contestants just to see where they place their hands to buzzing quick enough did they stay in the same category. Did they go. Two hundred four hundred six hundred or did they bounce around to try and throw off the other contestants so he came in with a very set strategy especially to go up against mr wonderful kevin o'leary from shark tank. That was his main competition. And i'm not gonna say he wanted to win it more than he wants to win a regular week ten. Nfl game against the jaguars like they have coming up this weekend but he took this very seriously show was a dream. But you don't think we're there any highlights or any surprises any categories where aaron rodgers did surprisingly well. Yeah leader of the pack. He obviously did very well in that in three thirty four bc. This great guy. Lead thirty five thousand greeks into persia. Aaron was alexander the great correct twelve hundred. The one question he did get wrong. Which was the final jeopardy question was it showed a black and white picture of two men riding old school motorcycles and the writing question i believe was what company made these. Aaron is looking pretty happy now. Did he come up with the correct response when he wrote down who are earned standing young and the answer was hardly and davidson and he got it wrong and then there's that brief moment where alex trebek's says well let's see how much wagered and rogers had a wry smile on his face and kind of smart looking at alex. Trebek's like i already know i won. This caused him too much. No he is the winner today. Charity the tape and he said he still has the little trophy. They gave him after winning celebrity jeopardy and that big fifty thousand dollar check the money that went to charity after he won. He still has those in his house. Check now with me. Checked and little choking and i asked him. Where does that day on. Celebrity jeopardy rank among non football ventures. Because he's been on game shows he's been courtside huge sporting events.

This is truly a beautiful beautiful beautiful location guys. It's known for its beaches. It's mountains, it's Jose Jimenez that are full the wildlife. It's definitely a must-visit location. If you need a place to stay well, why not look into the office in Nottingham Road Hotel just on Old Main Road legend has it that there have been establishments on this site since 1851. Before that's a long time. There was a not he's in or Tavern situated here that provided a hang out spot for soldiers who were stationed at nearby Fort Nottingham. The soldiers they were brought in for one mission in particular and that was to protect the local farmers from the thieving Bushman who were coming around and stealing their livestock. Apparently it become a real problem in these men did absolutely whatever they could to put an end to it. The overall location at this establishment, but it was ideal. It was actually able to cater to the mini horse-drawn carriages that passed through the area. This was a long before way would even be thought about the First Recording. Thanks about the hotel. We know today indicate that the land for the noughties as locals like to affectionately call. It was bought by a George Irwin around 1889 following the deaths of landowner James Ellis and his sister Jani-King the land being sold by the facts to pay off the siblings the States. What was the price received for that land a whopping sum of 125 pounds per acre. Wow. This was actually mean pretty steep for the time. My guess. It has that it had something to do with the favorable Loco. chicken I mean we have to stop and look at the fact that it's pretty much at a Crossroads where the road to the interior leads to the road that takes you straight to Fort Nottingham door window. He went on to a ranked what he called the Railway Hotel to serve the station that was built at the tiny Nottingham Road settlement. Local farmer and settler George Smith. Yes, Smith s m y bhe he writes in his diary July 12th 1882 off. The railway has it lasts commenced and there is a large staff of men on gallery busy putting a buildings in beginning the Earthworks. The station is to be just at the cross the road for Nottingham about two miles from straight turn. The railway line finally reached out to him Road at the end of 1885. The station was initially called Harrison's Camp after the contractor prior to the station's opening before being called Clark Lewis station. However, the name was changed to Nottingham Road station in 1887 as the locals decided that it was too far from karkloof to be so named previously Littleton was the last stop the real we changed the lives of the Midland settlers forever. There was a daily postal system and almost anything they needed could now be ordered from Durban or. It's Burg produce from the area could be quickly sent to the city centers for sale and travel between the coast and the interior was a matter of hours rather than weeks or days the railway also led to the development of the Midlands as a viable area for settlement that my opinion is always a great thing. The Railway Hotel was built by a mr. Morgan and was completed at the beginning of 1891 and it soon became the center of social activity at Nottingham Road. A gracious two-story building was set and rolling Lawns the hotel offered guess the Comforts of proper lighting package tennis courts and a Billiards room as well as activities such as shooting and horseback riding at the turn of the century another family took over the the last name Singleton. They would go on to run the business as they saw fit. But Nottingham Road Hotel was always the local favorite haunt weather for a social drink in the pub or for supposedly more serious matters such as meetings of the Dead Nottingham Road Farmers Association. Apparently, the farmers will often only survived home safely because they're faithful horses knew the way back to their Stables off the the system works smoothly until a prankster swapped the horses between the different traps and cards. So that drunken farmers were taken off in completely different directions often the locals would decide to stay over at the hotel especially at the weather was bad. One such farmer a Christopher groom was trying to reach the hotel to Shelter From a storm. He was unable to reach it in time and was unfortunately struck by a bolt of lightning just down side right where the first tennis courts were located in his dead horse were actually discovered some time later when the storm had passed over the bridge just man quite unaware of his narrow escape a hole was found straight through his saddle and it showed where that bolt of lightning had struck. Like all hotels or the history the Nottingham Road hotel is reputed to be haunted.

Unfortunately, he was killed on the fields of battle and birth. Made it back to his beloved Charlotte upon hearing the news took to the balcony of her room and was so stricken with grief that she threw herself to her deathbed. Send story right? I'd say that so pretty it's pretty good reason to come back as a ghost. She's not the only one that lurks around in the darkness though God. Oh, no as it would turn out Charlotte. She's just the one who likes to appear the most. Today not he's is one of the Midlands more popular hotels.

"Radio all throughout the day presses billiards darts are those sports or games sports or games billiards darts and what do I have to do if they are games to make them sports have people jog around a little bit or carry their bags for them like what do I need to do to make golf a sport instead of a game darts the sport billiards there isn't yeah I did I think all of them are games I thank god I think of bowling is a game is bowling a sport or game balls absolutely a sport are you kidding me I think anything with defense should be considered a sport golf's defenses what longer grass of the course yeah nature that that's not really not that's not defense somebody's got to be obstructing you in order to prove your athleticism someone has to be a challenging it with their own athleticism if you want to make him die coordination I know we're parsing hairs here and I know it is largely semantics but darts billiards those are hand eye coordination games to dance is filled with discussed right now because he badly wants to consider himself an athlete because he's kind of good you're good at a leisure activity and it can be competitive just not in the sports sense yeah but there needs to be in another person on the other side playing defense like there can't be it can't be the court does beating the course I guess NASCAR sport because yes because drivers are getting in each other drivers way yeah they're they're playing defense against that so if I don't find this insulting it's it's a very old okay as someone who's tried to a mass of this thing for basically his entire life so if you had someone trying to tackle Dustin Johnson on the par three that'd be a sport so for it to be a sport you have to have a defense right the argument yes someone stopping you from achieving your goal some would say the best defense is a good offense about that right okay thanks for nothin at leopard tarde show on Twitter is where to go Daniel Cormier company man Daniel Cormier is on with

Kingpins Rewind: Diamond Jim Pt. 1: Vincenzo Colosimo
"Jim knew the stakes from the moment. Bath House. John Inky Dank had called. They had put their faith in him giving him an opportunity to be more than just a two bit pimp and now he had to show them that they hadn't made a mistake. He thought the local politicians had liked him because he was tactful and quick thinking the kind of guy who could make sure his people voted the right way but now jim saw things for what they were more than anything the Alderman's respected him for this his willingness to get his hands dirty to do what needed to be done. That was what made big Jim Different. Jim had been trusted to collect protection vs from the city's illegal brothels the price of protection had gone up and some people weren't happy about it. Particularly Georgie the meanest Madam in town. Jim didn't feel guilty about beating her. Perhaps the brass knuckles were a bit much but he had to send a message to every barmaid and madame around big Jim Cosimo had arrived and he had no intention of leaving. I'm how hard it and I'm kate. Leonard and this is King Pins on the PODCAST network every week. We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power change them and how it changed the community around them. This is our first episode on Jim. Cosimo one of America's first modern kingpins. This week we'll be exploring his rise from indigent immigrant to crime. Lord of Chicago's Red Light District. Next week we'll look at his fall from grace arrest and the lasting legacy of his empire. You can listen to. All of Park has shows wherever you listen to podcasts. And if you enjoy the show one of the best ways to help us to leave a five star review now let's dive into the life of Chicago's first notorious Vice Lord. Big Jim Cosimo. Jim COSIMO was a self made man. He had come from nothing and yet had risen to become. Chicago's most feared and respected crime. Lord everybody knew Damon Jim and not just for his jewelry and that flashy three piece suit. He always wore for every moment. Jim had spent as a beggar peddling newspapers on the street corner. He intended to more than make up for it now that he had money in his pocket. Jen Colosio wasn't a pimp. He may have begun his criminal career selling sex on the Chicago streets but he had worked long and hard to become something much more than that by nineteen fourteen. Jim just turned thirty six. He already controlled be directly or indirectly more than one hundred businesses in. Chicago's first ward the Red Light district. He owned gambling joints and opium parlors billiards halls and saloons. Some even whispered that he sold Italian national lottery tickets and ran an underground wine business. Jim was in the business of sin and business was booming estimates at the time had him clearing well over half a million a year which in today's dollars would equate to roughly twelve and a half million. Jim Rarely traveled anywhere. If not by uniform chauffeur his elegant jewelry it led many to start calling him. Diamond Jim a name. He more than willingly accepted. He had a reputation now and it was one. He looked forward to living up. Two years. Spent living in luxury. Had led jim to develop an affinity for the fine arts. One art in particular stood out as his favourite the opera. He came to every show sometimes buying up as many as thirty seats. He always brought an entourage. Sometimes it was just a few of his men and their wives other nights. It was the men and their girlfriends after every show. Jim was welcomed backstage. Every member of the Chicago. Opera Company recognized him. He invited the singers. And the Maestro over to his restaurant call a simos cafe. He knew they would come. They always did after the show. Jim Returned to the restaurant and poured himself a drink since its opening in nineteen. Ten COSIMO's cafe had quickly become one of Chicago's hottest nightspots politicians celebrities and wise guys alike all gathered there each night to enjoy the old school Italian cooking and lively entertainment but it was the after dinner activities that truly endeared cosimo's cafe to the Chicago elites gambling joints were dime a dozen but where else but coliseum ohs could an intrepid diner go upstairs and gamble until the wee hours of the morning with hardened criminals state senators and foreign actresses alike. One night at cosimo's cafe sometimes bag jim more than a week's worth of his brothels receipts and Jim knew he was really selling the same thing at either venue not just food or sex. He was selling something far. More important. An experience Jim saw little distinction between the customers at his brothels. And those who pulled cigars and gambled away thousands at his restaurant as far as he was concerned. The only real difference between the two was that you never had to pretend you cared whether the brothel patrons had enjoyed themselves and for Jim pretending to care was the worst part he had lived his life without conscience never stopping to consider who he was hurting along his way. This way of living had done him. Well it had been the factor that allowed him to grow from nothing into the Titan. He had become the story of Jim. Cosimo begins in colostomy a small mountainous town in southern Italy with the birth of a child. By the name of Vincenzo. By the time Vincenzo Cosimo was born on February sixteenth. Eighteen seventy eight. The economy in southern Italy had taken a turn for the worse with jobs. Few and far between men of working age. Were already starting to ship off to the United States in hopes of finding their fortune but leaving colostomy was hardly an option for Vincenzo. Father Luigi who had grown up in the tiny mountain town Luigi Zone father remained. The area's most wealthy landowner. He would raise his family here. No matter how difficult it may be. Unfortunately those plans were dashed by the tragic passing of Luigi Wife Vincenzo. Mother JUST SUBPOENA. Luigi was now a widower with four children to take care of and with his own job prospects dim at best amid the stalling economy. He made a decision that would change the course of history in eighteen. Ninety one Luigi send his youngest son Vincenzo off to America. He was only twelve years old with a bright future ahead of him. Luigi hoped the boy would become wealthy enough to support the rest of the colosseum. Oh clan three long weeks after departing from Naples Vincenzo and his twenty one year old half brother. Antonio arrived by steamship into New York Harbor. The pair hardly had any time to enjoy the New York skyline before they were put on a train to Chicago where Luigi had made arrangements to have the boys room in the city's ever-growing Italian neighborhood Antonio was ready to go home before the pair had even arrived he'd been tasked with leading the youngster across the Atlantic but he had no interest in staying in America as soon as he ensured that Vincenzo had a roof over his head Antonio bid his younger brother. Good bye and luck.

"And and they're all connected. They're not all connected that'd be cool though they have said that. On multiple occasions people have dug dug through two neighbor's homes so because there is that little regulation about sizing and such you can you can just dig dig dig and then all of a sudden your neighbors living room so that's got to be addressed sure but it would be awesome if it was like an entire underground town with an underground mall and you never had to go it would be well. Actually they could call it Morlock town and they could call it that I mean there's there is a lot underground there. Are there's a bar. There are multiple hotels there one hotel as a matter of fact was expanding banding a couple of years ago during their expansion they were adding some new rooms underground and they found a cache of Opel which made them about one point five million dollars so that renovation was a really good call for them no kidding yeah so I guess they got to do their renovation Asian pretty much for free. I would think Dave got underground hostels for backpackers. There are beds and breakfasts ses beds ads bed in their underground. BNB's visas we call them. There's an underground campground underground brothels the at one of those yet. I'm not sure about the specifics of what they do. You call it lack hard. Though considering its sandstone let's maybe not boding well for the clientele but yeah underground campgrounds and so much more so you have that opportunity to do much of your day to day underground. Why is it that living underground or having a retreat underground is so appealing? I don't know is it because a lot of people don't find it appealing. I mean for you and I. I don't know is it because uh it feels safe to me and you feel like you can kind of cut yourself off from society and maybe you're just there. You know no one's GonNa in a bother. You feel secluded.

"Know. We're going to talk today. The coober pedy coup coober couvert. PD Heuberger appea- is fun to say it is fun regardless of water who that is it is a town in South Australia north of Adelaide on the sturt highway what's up as he freaks soon love yeah so the District Council of cooter. PD coober pedy cooter fee that would be coomer. PD estimates that the population is around twenty five hundred the two thousand sixteen census says that the population Asian is seventeen sixty two so approximately sixty percent of the people living in Coober pedy are European in in heritage the migrated from southern and eastern Europe after the Second World War there were three hundred to aboriginal and or Torres Torres Strait islander people that made up about seventeen percent of the population all in all there are about forty five plus nationalities represented presented in Coober pedy being such a small place or or sparsely populated place. That's incredible of these. The people about half live underground all right. You've got my attention now. I have always wanted to have like a bomb shelter or a fallout all out shelter but a really cool one with a pool table should have a pool table yeah and I've got it all mapped out in my head about how you get down into it. It has is like a trap door but the trap door is disguised as a tree stump. You and I've talked about this very early conversation conversation that you and I had when we discovered that we both dreamed of building a house underground yours was a tree stump. Mine was like a tool shed but it had one of those floor fifty. That's cool hidden entries. I've actually modified the tree stump idea. I want to incorporate the foot foot. Pedal trash can lid technology. Oh yeah absolutely so you step on the route and then you know it'll open up in the top and then you scurry down into your bunker hunker in play pool that sounds amazing yeah no very very similar dreams and goals so are they living in manmade subterranean dwellings or are these caves or caverns that have been adapted. Tell me all about this okay so coober. pedy is is an opal mining place. The first Opel was found on February one nineteen fifteen and since then the town has been supplying most of the world's gem quality opal the town is sometimes referred to as the Opel capital of the world because of the quantity of precious opal that our mind their coober pedy he also has a very hot desert climate. It's dry and hot in the summer little cooler and dry in the winter. The best time of year is according according to whether base dot com between April and October the weather is most mild then average summer temperatures though range from thirty six degrees Celsius which is about ninety six point eight degrees Fahrenheit during the day and twenty degrees Celsius or sixty eight degrees Fahrenheit at night and January is the hottest month of the year with temperatures around forty two degrees Celsius during the day being very common. That's about one hundred eight degrees. They're the hottest day on record in Coober pedy one hundred eighteen degrees Fahrenheit. That's forty seven point eight eight degrees Celsius coldest twenty eight degrees Fahrenheit or two negative two degrees Celsius some serious his temperature swings there so this incredibly hot arid environment is also a very sought after by a lot of movie producers parts of Mad Max three beyond Thunderdome the adventures of Priscilla Queen of the desert chronicles of Riddick pitch black all filmed in that region but it does does make regular life kind of tough so when miners started moving to this region they would work in the mines all day and they realized that the minds were much cooler at night then their homes so minor started sleeping in the minds at night I know I would I cannot sleep if if I'm overheated I am the most miserable son of a bitch when I'm overheated at night especially if it's if it's humid as well the only way I was able asleep for a long time is by putting a shitty BOUSSAC on my neck. Oh yes the sweet cooling graces of Shitty Booze sock. It was some booze that somebody he gave us and said Hey put this in your freezer and so we did and we never really used it except for when I was overheated needed I would put it on my neck but I put in a sock because it was too cold yeah so shitty boosts Shitty BOUSSAC. Get Yours now yeah no. I'm the same I like. I like hot weather. I like being warm except for at night no so of course the idea of well. Let's just stay underground question question mark kind of became a thing and the early coober pedy dugouts which is what these underground homes are called were actually usually the holes that had been dug originally in search of Opel back then opal-mining was backbreaking manual labor so the earliest of of the homes where no bigger than they actually had to be so they're pretty small they were they were what you'd picture. A dugout might be probably digging in that that environment would be very difficult because the ground was probably I'm sure still is heat baked and hard and very difficult to dig through yeah but the people were always digging. They're always in search of the next big Opel. Find and homes were being expanded. A wonderful example of an early dugout that continued being built was the home of Faye and her home is actually known as phase underground home. It is has a home that is actually open to the public at all times yeah and her home underground has three bedrooms with walking closets living room a bar a wine cellar. She airbnb this a billiard room swimming pool yes. She does say knows what's up. Oh my God. I want to stay there. I don't think that phase home is available for Airbnb but there are Dr Dugouts are two airbnb all right we could stay at one of those and then go visit Fay. Absolutely there are also to underground ground churches Saint Peter and Paul Catholic underground church is located in Coober pedy and has some beautiful hand-dug pughs the sandstone in coober pedia perfectly suited for underground home so it's pretty easy to dig through once you get to the sandstone but it structurally truly sound that's right. It's strong stable. not a lot of risk of cave-ins not a lot of complicated engineering necessary to calculate ceiling heights are spans. One of the residents said that when he was young mining and digging were such a part of his life that he would go to school he would come home. They would do their homework. They would have dinner and then dad would get out the pickaxes and everyone in the family would go dick so it just made sense that where there are so few regulations for homes underground and you're doing this digging anyway. It's part of your life that they they make these incredible incredible homes so you can go out and dig for opals and create a home for yourself at the same time and if you're lucky you'll find some opals and then you can get a really nice his pool table. That's right you could so a lot of the early dugouts obviously dug by hand but there are tunnelling machines now which leave actually really nice pattern Saturn on the wall and the sandstone has a beautiful maroon and rose colored to it. Sometimes it's Kinda swirly pattern so it's really pretty it's very warm and friendly looking it's not dark and craggy and you know monkey like you might picture underground. It's it's bright and and lovely and because they seal these walls dusty so they also have ventilation shafts offs up through the roofs so that fresh air is coming in and keeps it from getting stuffy or the able to get any natural light down there through various slighting ducts or there have been some really interesting designs to get as much natural light in as you can think that you know all really really all you need to do is just put up the right type of daylight lighting systems right and also many of these dugouts are built into the sides of mountains so your entrance is at ground level so you have that opportunity to get that light into and if you build the right shafts the front of the house could could be well. Let's keep in mind also this is very eco friendly because the underground space stays the same temperature year round around so you don't have to worry about heating and cooling costs which in this region you would have to do both above ground underground though none of those worries which is why so many people and businesses have opted to make their business are opted to build underground braid so not only are homes underground but stores.

I WANNA start with a with a weird mystery and maybe between the two of us we can put our heads together and solve this once and for all you know how I love solving thing mysteries for years now. There's a certain stretch of Canadian road. That's been haunted by mystery that is so strange change. It not only continues to baffle authorities. We're talking about authorities that if solves some pretty significant mysteries over over time but it's also baffled the minds of those who live nearby okay now many have tried to solve this perplexing riddle in although so many of tribe none have succeeded and still to this day. No one knows for sure what is going on along this strip of sixty eighth street northeast which is eroding Calgary Alberta now the earliest documented sighting of this particular dealer anomaly dates back nearly a decade to the summer of twenty eleven. It could go back further than this but twenty eleven is the first documented account account of this in every summer since then hundreds of people have witnessed it but still the question remains who keeps placing lacing all of these empty vassil lean bottles on the median today we're GonNa look at the enduring hiring mystery of Calgary's vassil lean alley wow now the stories have been covered by many newspapers and TV stations not just in the area but throughout Canada and the United States as well as some network coverage including including the CBC Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. I believe is what that stands for but the earliest documented mentioned goes to a Reddit post in twenty eleven and yeah I know stuff on Reddit you have to kind of take it with a grain of salt but this has been followed up on by very credible edible news sources and it is real it is going on right. I have questions go ahead. Go ahead all right. They all all of them show up at once this or is it a gradual adding to a little bit of both the earliest read it post dates back to twenty eleven and of course I there have been many many more since then but here's the earliest post that I found quote. This may be a little out there but bear with me. has anyone else ever noticed the dozens of empty vacillation containers along sixty eight street northeast between thirty Second Avenue Memorial drive in Calgary a little little backstory. We used to live in the northeast and would drive the stretch of road daily and we still do when visiting my parents roughly five to six years ago during the winter one night driving back from my parents place I noticed what must have been twenty to thirty containers of Vassil Lean on the side of the road. They just appeared appeared one night and I figured you know maybe some truck lost box of vacillation bottles or something why else would they be there and in such numbers but there were so many of these containers and they continued to show up they would move up and down the road randomly and they started spreading out from thirty Second Avenue Avenue all the way down to memorial drive at some point. I figured a city grew would do some kind of cleanup at some point in time but if they did they never picked up these containers it became a running joke with my wife. Every time we would visit my parents gradually they started thinning out and when the city repaved sixty sixty eighth street last year this again in twenty eleven or the year before they all but disappeared you might find a random lid or a dirty crushed container but but it was few and far between I thought the legend of the Vassil Lean die off and that no one would believe me if I were to tell the story until this summer the the vessel lean is back and not just the old containers these are brand new fresh clean tubs vassil lean now how the vacillating in the TUB or are they empty tubs according to this read it poster they're always empty and there were at random spots lots between thirty second avenue of memorial drive and there is more every time that they go back to visit their parents someone out there is Dumping Ping empty tubs of vacillation along the road and may have been doing it for years. Why are they doing this? I have no idea and why is no one else ever noticed this. If these pitchers aren't enough proof go for a drive and you'll see them in both north and southbound lanes. I have so many questions and finally have the proof to tell the story without seeming to crazy in another red at post. Somebody said for a couple of years my family and I have been noticing tubs vassil lean at the intersection action sixty eighth street in thirty second avenue in the user Samuel Swine wrote their place there regularly and this person says is that sometimes there full other times there are empty and then sometimes they're full again so we're getting conflicted reports here as to whether the vacillating tubs are in in fact empty or are full the general consensus is the vast majority of them are not only empty but they've been cleaned. Okay Oh okay and then stacked neatly on the curb oh so not just tossed out the window haphazardly not initially that's. It's what seems to be happening now sure well if you want to add to the collection and you don't want to be caught. You're probably just going to toss out your window. Oh I'm thinking tile kind of thing like a copycat kind of deal but with vastly tubs share yep or these vast clean tabs are like you know certain types of swallows that will return to their home capistrano vacillating tubs CBS of Calgary Alberta Roost on a median strip on sixty eighth street northeast every time this time of year. I can't help but think that there's some sort of like clandestine Gastein but activity happening nearby well. That's one of the theories you know it is.

Production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Volk bomb here a Viking warrior is buried in Sweden in the tenth century. See e the grave excavated in the eighteen seventies. Dna results are published in two thousand seventeen sounds like a typical archaeological process of discovery that we take for granted. This find however has been anything, but typical because this Viking warrior was a woman. Founded an underground chamber in eighteen seventy eight this warrior had been buried in a seated position with two horses as well as a sword axe knives. Spears shields and armor, piercing EROs. In addition said of gaming pieces, representing military strategy was found in the lap of seated body surrounded by such weapons of war and without typical feminine coded items such as jewelry or weaving equipment. This high ranking warrior was assumed to be a man for more than one hundred twenty five years. Though there had been an osteo logical analysis in the nineteen seventies. Suggesting a slender bone structure, indicative of a female conclusive evidence was not presented until 2017 Charlotte. Hidden scared Youngson, an archaeologist at Sweden's Uppsala University and her colleagues published their genomic analysis in the American journal of physical anthropology explaining that ancient DNA taken from a tooth and arm-bone of the buried warrior showed only x x chromosomes with. No y chromosome confirming this Viking warrior was a woman and the two is likely more than thirty years old when she died. Why did the genetic results take so long? We spoke with hidden standard Johnson via Email, and she explained that good science takes time. The project was working with several iron in Viking age, skeletons and processing ancient DNA isn't as easy as modern DNA. Their findings were initially met with questions and criticisms, including suspicions that the wrong bones had been tested, but careful review of the data trail confirms that the bones. I found in eighteen seventy eight were in fact, the bones, processed and that they're definitely biologically female. The researchers do acknowledge that the items found at the burial site aren't as a -sarily the possessions of the buried Viking. But their opinion is that this was indeed the grave of a high ranking warrior. He didn't steering a Youngson said most likely she was connected to the troops. And Bianca and linked to the garrison situated very close to the burial some modern folks have raised the question as to whether this biologically female warrior was living as a man, and whether this might have been as common as gender transitions are today. Way. But the researchers cautioned against applying our modern day concepts of gender to an ancient non western people. They do it knowledge that this is just one case study, and quote, there are many other possibilities across a wide gender spectrum some perhaps known to us, but billiard to the people of the time. Alongside these questions. The Bianca settlement itself is a fascinating site located on the island Bianca in east central Sweden. It was the country's first urban center and was Sweden's most important trade centre with northern Europe in the eighth through tenth centuries today, the bureau archaeological site a UNESCO world heritage site. The site contains more than three thousand known graves with only about one thousand one hundred excavated in examined so far and only seventy five thousand with offensive weapons as opposed to defensive weapons though, Viking women have been found buried with weapons before nothing compares to the objects found at the site from this study the amount of type of items at the site suggest a professional fighter perhaps amounted Archer and the game board at associated pieces also suggest a command role. The fact that no tools are agricultural equipment were found there reinforces this Marshall role in society. In addition tassled cap reserved for leaders of society was found at the burial site. And the fact that she was probably not a local inhabitant also tells us. About her status. According to heathens Johnson, the relatively high level of mobility indicated by the variation in strontium levels between three different teeth is in concordance with the itinerary lifestyle of the social elite. The placement of the site itself. Also, reflects a certain standing both inside and military. It's the westernmost gravesite found. Bianca prominently situated near the garrison located there and had been marked by a boulder making it visible both from the settlement and the surrounding lake. Though, these findings may lead to the reexamination of excavated graves and bodies to determine sex.
