Remember that one so all the papers.

Of sam houston. The city's namesake and former governor and president of texas in one of the things that david loved about sculpting sam houston was working on the head and specifically the is head is about twelve feet tall and i get looking in his eyes and i love the way it's gone looks right at you. It was a big job so in the middle of it. David decided to take a little break. Go on a road trip. Take a quick vacation to visit friends in canada and driving. Back home decided mount rushmore. Everybody knows what it is. But i've never seen it but man i was well by that in the sixty feet tall but disappointed that you couldn't get closer to them. Look in their eyes. The is to david.

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio. This time. we're going back to episode one of season two and it was titled the alcatraz story this episode premiered on january fourth nineteen fifty nine at the time. Alcatraz was still very much an operation as a prison and it did not close until march of nineteen sixty three. The alcatraz story starts off with a scene of several convicts breaking rocks on the cliffs of alcatraz when all of a sudden one of the convex Falls in and then you see him. Swim-down before surfacing when the guards fish him out but wait. There's a mysterious fishing boat. The olympia watching what's happening. The convict circling is arm as if he's signaling fishing boat the scene shifts to the boat and three guys say they need to find mike nelson. Now we're underwater with mike nelson and he's testing flares for company. When all of a sudden an anchor comes crashing down dangerously close to him and an a skin. Diver comes diving down. Mike is really mad. And he's ready to chew him out when he gets to the surface but they get to the surface in all the guys start apologizing and they say they've came a long way to see mike and mike ask them why to bury mitzi no. They introduced themselves as the brand brothers. Larry johnny and frank they claim to be abalone divers and need to to learn how to scuba dive so they can find the abalone. Mike advises them on the law. But they say hey there lotto buying brothers so he agrees to teach larry and johnny how to scuba dive for three hundred dollars. And we're going to start tomorrow morning at eight thirty. But mike tells them any of them goof off. It's over so the next morning they're out diving. Mike says they're easy to teach. He's going over the equipment the safety procedures in the buddy system underwater now. They're in triples doubles and singles tanks. Bit of everything after their first lesson which by the way lasted five hours underwater and they were below sixty feet might tells the brothers no more diving while he heads back to town jeep to get the tanks fill and he gives them a book on scuba diving. Do read larry tells mike okay teach will be good he had. That's not gonna happen. Mike returns to find the boat empty. And there's bubbles in the water. Larry johnny or diving again just franks shows up and mike and frank get into a fight before mike knocks him down gets into his gear and enters the water to retrieve the two brothers before they kill themselves. Mike finds them underwater. And it looks like they're doing something like the dive master gear exchange. Now they take off and mike goes in hot pursuit for some reason. Johnny turns around rips. Mike mask off. Mike has defined it. Put it on and clear it. Just in time to find larry running out of air. Mike grabs larry and buddy breathes with him to the surface now. Mike is really mad. Schools over another five minutes and all their problems would have been over. They'd be dead his advice. Don't play games with the ocean. The brothers gibb tell mike. They were just practicing. What was in the book. Mike gave them. Mike doesn't really believe them but they take off and as the boat depart mike find frank's wallet on the pier. Apparently he lost it. Doing to fight with mike. He's not frank brennan but frank bronson the plot thickens. Wonder if my god is three hundred dollars the scene now shifts to fisherman's warf and mike is getting the low down on the bronson brothers. They haven't been abalone fishermen for years and there's a fourth brother mark now mike looking for their boat but he spots it on often abandoned peer in oakland and decides that he needs to scuba dive out to see what's up. The board is empty. But before mike can get on board the three bronze brothers show up his only option. Hide under the boat when the engine starts. He grabbed a dangling. Bow-line and hitches a ride. They're up to no good. The pressure is tremendous as he hangs on an fears of the blades of the prop behind them. But the boat finally slows then stops. And larry johnny jump in on scuba and have an extra set a gear. What's going on. Mike surfaces and sees their right off alcatraz. It's two against one. Nothing new for mike nelson. He follows them down to some rocks underwater where they deploy a surface buoy. Then we see a convict one zero nine eight six. That would be mark bronson. He died into the water now. Mike gets it as he sees the convict getting into a wet suit. And putting on the gear. Mike shoots a flare off to signal. The guards on alcatraz hoping it works. Mike is now fully rigged mask wetsuit. Tank regulator weight belt and knife and their high tailing it off against a strong title current. But larry turns and he spots mike. He's going to fight a rearguard action while johnny and markswoman. It's a knife fight. And it's a good one larry's tough clever and slippery but might get behind. Him cuts his air hose and brings him to the surface. And that's where we see. Mike's knife into larry's first stage. The flare did its job. And there's a patrol boat from the island coming on the scene that's one bronson in the bag on the boat. They followed the brothers bubbles and when they catch up mike dies back in lights off a flare and pokes it at the brothers and another massive underwater fight breaks out mike pulls off marks masks shuts air off and shoves him johnny he then puts johnny in a stranglehold and brings the two brothers to the surface. Mike has thwarted escape attempt. Larry says on the boat. It was a pretty good scheme. Yeah mike doesn't think so. Wow this first. Episode new year was jam packed with some great underwater fight scenes. I guess they really wanted to get everyone excited about the show again. And you most definitely will recognize johnny bronson. That was leonard. Nimoy yes mr spock. He shows up again. So that's the alcatraz story from nineteen fifty-nine the first episode of season. Two of seon. Hope you enjoyed it. I'll be back again soon with another installment of seon. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio.
'Zombie' Urchins Are Wiping Out Kelp Forests
"California francisco. has a sea urchin problem. They've exploded in numbers off the northern california coast and these purple spiky urchins are wiping out crucial kelp forests so scientists are searching for ways to slow him down. Here's npr's laura summer diving. A kelp forest is a lot like walking through a real forest. The seaweed is thirty to sixty feet tall. It's very surreal. You're kind of coming around. And then you have this large canopy over you. That's kind of filtering light. At least that's how it used to be says. Meredith mcpherson a graduate student at uc santa cruz. She and her colleagues found that ninety. Five percent of kelp forests have disappeared in counties north of san francisco. Cal provides a key habitat for all kinds of marine life. We were expecting something like that. But it doesn't really make it any easier to digest in terms of the actual loss of the coastal ecosystem because of an ecological double whammy. I came marine heat. Wave known as the blob. Water temperatures rose far above normal then came a more direct attack. Purple sea urchins. Their veracious grazers. They devour kelp. Sometimes we see dozens of them. Crawling up the stem of the kelp and kind of taking it down from there. Normally urchins are kept in check by their main predator off northern california a giant starfish sea star scientists call them known as the sunflower see star. But they've been wiped out by sea star wasting disease. Scientists think that both the disease the blob of warm water were made worse by climate change even now with most of the kelp off northern california gone the urgency
The Purple Urchins Don't Die
"Everybody i here with npr. Climate correspondent lauren summer. Hey lorne hey okay mattie. Today i want you to picture diving in the pacific ocean. Okay like where this is headed. You look down but instead of seeing rocks and seaweed and stuff you see purple purple. Yeah hundreds of round spiky purple things. It's looks like someone rolled out a purple carpet over the sea floor. As far as you can see their purple sea urchins. Morgan murphy cannella is a diver and she seen an explosion of them off the northern california coast. Okay what's going on these urgency taken over. What used to be kept for us. you know. That's the seaweed that grows thirty to sixty feet tall so it creates us really. Lush underwater forest urgency eat kelp but normally not enough to really hurt the whole kelp population. But there have been some big ecological shifts that have led to the urgent explosion and now there are so many urchins. The kelp forests are disappearing. So does that mean that. The fans are going to go away. Actually no i mean you might predict a major die off because there isn't a lot of food left that hasn't happened. Morgan says they can endure that kind of like zombies. They can last for a long time without eating and they just they just live their job very bizarre anibal after respect them though so now the big question is is there anything that can be done you know. Has the scale tip too far or can. The kelp forest be brought
Paperbark Maple: The Perfect Tree For Small Spots
"I found a plant. That i've known for a long time. I know younger ones of it. But i was. I was in a different situation last weekend. And i came across a more mature paperbark. Maple now i i. I have a client friend who has one that somebody teen feet. This one would be twenty twenty two feet now. That last four feet is not just in i. it's in width. Also paperbark maple is well named it has Bark like sycamore in the sense of peeling off. it's different colors as such and it's it's a bi colored plant even without considering the leaves. The leaf is a try type leaf for little little center stem and three leaflets. On each the twigs then are a well. I don't know dark. Brown glossy Anywhere for the first two possibly three years. then they start to what's called exploit. The bark literally peels off and within the fourth and fifth year. The the pretty brown is on out on the newer tips and it's then just simply shedding its outer skin and as it sheds at outer skin it makes it attractive darn near all year round. I i walked around the corner on a fairly sizable building. And the guy said. That's that that is a paperwork maple. He's how'd you know from from sixty feet. I could tell because the bark. I said then i have to look at the buds just to be sure but Quite a remarkable treat twenty to thirty feet it makes a wonderful vents small tree for smaller properties and so on and then of course interesting in its exfoliating season as well as a light shade now. Maples says the the norway maple in particular is known to kill lawns. it has a tremendous amount of routes. They're fairly close to the surface and they they will cause the area around them to be barren of grass anyhow Quite easily this tree. As i have seen them in the past and it fair sites and the one i'm talking about seeing the date has oh i don't know eight and a half nine inch trunk diameter at about twenty two feet or so so it's it is not even starting to kill the grass wonderful small trie for small lawns. And you're always talking about looking for ways to have a four season plant. Absolutely is a four season planet is now the the fall color is not the very greatest hits. It's an orangey. it's attractive enough by all means but it's not like a sugar maple that flames or looks like flame in the forest. But it's still very very pretty and then it has nice looking structure and then the the papery bark is from the ground right on up through the top except for the first two years of the foliage or of of the bark on the twigs. And that's that cinnamon dark brown Just absolutely an attractive tree for small spots.
Breakthrough at Home Pain and Mental Health Relief with Richard Hanbury, Founder Sana Health, Inc

Problem following a spinal cord injury from a jeep crash near saana in yemen and nineteen. Ninety-two richard has an mba. From the wharton school in healthcare and also a law degree from the college of law in london the original benchtop device removed all his nerve damage pain in three months saving his life. He has spent twenty five years developing the sonnet technology from the original benchtop device to the current device undergoing clinical trials sonnet uses pulsed light and sound and a heart rate variability feedback loop to guide the user in a deep state of relaxation. Clinical trials have been completed in opioid use disorder and fibromyalgia and sauna is launching in fibromyalgia and twenty twenty one however is available today and richard is going. Tell us more about it. And i'm just really excited to have the opportunity to interview richard and have them bring forth this technology to to the the world richard such a pleasure to have you here today to be thank it. Yeah and so before we dive into saana and it saana dot. Io folks if you're curious tell us a little bit about you and what got you into healthcare thank you yes as a nineteen year old kid. I was traveling in in the yemen. And i was given a choice of a head on collision in my jeep next to a petrol truck or two gulf bridge and i chose gulf a bridge. 'cause i figured We would either way. There would be so remains to find if i went to the bridge. Say dance with dry riverbeds sixty foot dying and cheap crumpled up A results in spun good injuries from thc ten. Which is betty button level plus a traumatic brain injury and they say old. That was why. I had to be medevac k. I was clinically dead for eight minutes back to matt intercom a middle of that resulted in damaged problem that was say sparrows given a five year life expectancy sarabia. It was the question of near figure. Something i myself or old. I say that was the mother of invention necessity. It's unbelievable i mean that is crazy. So you're driving a jeep and there's this truck just heading straight at you and you're like explosive beth falloffs bridge and you just made the choice. I mean like when that happened. Richard to win you actually remember like what point jr actually start remembering what happened and gained consciousness. And how did they find you so it was semi passenger was burglary but was in good enough shape to festival shine in arabic. So the people watching the right to danger. Petrol cigarettes is they were running. Schools tile passwords lit cigarettes. In khao is everything was checked in the gasoline tank Say yeah ben. E managed to get them to throw away the cigarettes publicized and transported us to vote what they very loosely called the hospital. And that's my friend. Got the insurance companies to send them back pain coming up. Unbelievable i mean. I mean that is just unbelievable Era miracle the be here spell. And i'm sure that the road to recovery was not easy for you and you know lots of gain. You said i had to do something about this. And that was the beginning of sauna and so you've made leaps and bounds. Since the beginning you're recovered very happy for you. Richard and As i'm sure your family is to so now you have this device and this company. Why don't you tell us a little bit more about what it is how it works and that way the listeners could get educated on it including myself suddenly say basically. All pain is some combination of central mediation. Which has had brain prices pain and prefer plain. Which is the signal coming into the brain. Now with mike pain i had sponging. Tbi and i was on very extreme faction where it was all about how the brain was pricing pain signal. But it wasn't really paints were coming up from my spine. It was essentially corrupt. Data stream is very similar to what you get with phantom limb. Actually being told her in pain is being told your visits we had signal. That doesn't quite make sense. Say with me. I was very rainy. Lucky the original device was able to wipe all by damage pain
Material Shortages, Paneled Ceilings, and To Vent or Not to Vent
"This is senior editor patron mccomb. Today I'm joined by Rob Watson digital brand manager. Hey. there. Kylie Jacques Design Editor. Hello. And producer. Jeff. Rose I. Well, it is a pleasure to see you all this morning. Thanks again for joining me. Pleasure. So I want to start off lending briefly Kylie someone commented on Itunes with regard to the podcast, and they said some very nice things many more about us. So you should definitely take a look at that. I want to encourage all of our listeners to please review the podcast it really helps us out both in terms to know that we're doing a good job and to help others find it. So if you do that for me, I would be super appreciative. That com that was dated on July twenty ninth but prior to that the most recent one was like the end of April. So. Get to. Work People. And thank you in advance I. Look At. Rob, what are you doing? What have I been doing? Well, you know. I. Keep talking about that Porch but kind of done with there's nothing new about. Other night other than last night i. just sat out there and enjoyed a glass of wine even though it's not completely done yet just sat there and watch the sunset. So drinking hooch on your new deck is the best thing ever. But actually the next project I'm not actually the next project because it's a big one is It's been so hot and Muggy lately that for years on and off have been like do do we want to pool problem is we're very particular about our garden and I would I would have wanted my daughter was little thrown up crappy pool in the backyard just to cool off but it doesn't fit into the. Landscape design apparently of our property. So So We've been totally disagree I went above ground. Pool absolutely. Fantastic. As. Long as I picked, the right would grain right? Well, I, I was going to get I was GONNA. Actually just plant some. Or Tall. Grass in front of it so that you know you can kind of hide it but the problem is I just don't have the space for that. So we've been talking about we've a narrow lot with a twenty foot setback from both sides and it's sixty feet wide. So that means we could just put something in the middle of our yard and there's not very many places to do that. We found this one garden bed that we're willing to take a chunk out of. And possibly dig in and put build a concrete soaking pool. So it's something that it's something that. Is Basically. Yeah. Basically, it's bigger than a hot TUB, but it's not something you can swim laps in. and. and. Probably. Even. Though seems kind of a bit labour-intensive thing. Probably do it with pouring slab in doing a block wall and plastering the block wall in doing stone coping in behind the why you think that sounds labor intensive. Well, actually I had. I had this great idea My. Daughter about how hard liens working on your property tactic. Even offered her a little bit more money than you're paying per hour. Maybe she could dig. Don't you dare? Rolling. So it would probably stick up about it would be right in the lawn. So probably stick up about sixteen inches out of the lawn with a stone top on it so that it would act like a garden benches well and Maybe That or not your own disaster at well, I've actually been just searching around for ideas on. Pinterest in elsewhere and phones mice examples have found some one example of some women in. The. Netherlands who built one by herself and his. All this cool stuff. All these cool details that she did is basically the same methods of construction and one of the coolest things was that Like well, this too small swim in this thing and those those jet pools you can swim in place or like thousands of dollars. While this woman bought thing, it's a it's a harness that you hook to some d rings in the corner of the pool and it doesn't same thing holds you back. Easy swam against this idea the harness. For A jet. You don't need a jet you swim in place to harness keep you from swimming forward You know I'll help dig thing if I can use it now on that. Okay. Sure to harness. Of wacky and honestly the Dickens give me really easy because. All the sand is going to be wheelbarrow downhill from the site and my my ground is all it's like a thirty. Patients one. GOING DOWNHILL My ground ground is all course sand. So a guy I dug a trench to my barn for conduct wants by hand and it was no big deal. Easy.
Dr. Anthony Fauci on the Return of Sports in America
"Dr Chee Hello. Thank you so much for joining us. It's my pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having me. Dr Anthony. FAUCI is the director of the national. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also coincidentally went to the same high school as me Regis High School in New York City. Dr. You're a very busy man. I'm so grateful for the time you've given us so. I have many pressing things to ask you about, but I would feel negligent as a sports journalist. If I didn't start with the action on the fields, the Great Anthony Fauci was there to throw out the first pitch and this was not a great pitch. He's an epidemiologist is first pitch on opening day last Thursday. happened. Well. It certainly was a mishap part I had been practising for two days before a walk down that I thought was sixty feet. And it was really probably forty five. And I was throwing throwing in throwing and I got it right. But only was at forty five feet and I kinda hurt my mom because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me. But I said Hell I could suck it up and just throw it the way I'd been practising when I got to the mound. I said Oh my God Sean doolittle looked like he was two hundred feet away. A. So. What I did was I completely changed the form of my throw and instead of just throwing it lobby, get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only. It just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. In terms of the real baseball news this week, it concerns the fact that over a dozen members of the organization tested positive for Covid Nineteen and Major League Baseball has since spawned Marlins Games until Sunday after some teams including the one you root for the nationals they raised concerns about traveling to Miami to actually play. So what's your assessment of how major? League Baseball has handled this corona virus up rick? You. Know I think they've handled it well to be honest with you in that. They've done virtually everything that you do. To try to get the goal was to protect the health and the welfare of the players and of the personnel associated with the team when I had discussion with some of the officials of different teams as well as of MLB in general, we went over the different kinds of protocols that they would need, testing and things. One of the things that came up as a big concern is what happens if a cluster of players get infected and how you gonNA handle that with that wind up, not only shutting down the team? Would it then impact on other teams that would be playing? So it was a consideration I think we're going to have to take. On a day by day week by week basis I hope. that it doesn't interfere completely with the progression of this truncated season because the players certainly WanNa play, they don't want to endanger their health that's for sure and the fans at least on TV would like to see it. So I think we're going to have to see what happens over the next few days to a week, but I can tell you that a lot of good faith. Faith effort was put into this by the owners by the play reps by the players themselves. So I hope that this is just a temporary setback and that we can continue the season. But again, the most important thing is the safety and the welfare of the players under the personnel associated and the place family too. Because, if you get infected, you've got to be concerned about spreading it.

She made history there in nineteen ninety nine but on the operating table. Her remarkable incident began with a skiing trip after work with some colleagues. They were all avid skiers who were familiar with the local mountains and the conditions that day were ideal sunny with lots of fresh powder. They were only a few runs in. When Anna tripped losing her skis tumbled and slid toward a frozen stream when she hit the ice broke and her upper half was pulled into the frigid rushing. Water her friends ray able to reach her in grabbed her boots before the current could pull her all the way under. They phoned for help beneath the water. Bogging home struggled upward and managed to reach the airspace under the ice. She could breathe but her clothes were soaked.

The human body likes to be around ninety eight degrees Fahrenheit or thirty seven degrees Celsius all sorts of complex involuntary automatic.

Sometimes when the body census you getting too cold it begins to protect you from the outside in since air polls heat away from the surface of the body. Blood vessels in the skin begin. Constricting less blood is going to your arms and legs and more is staying in your core to keep your internal organs warm. This leaves -ceptable to frostbite. But you've got bigger problems. If the vessel constriction doesn't stop the temperature drop. The body tries to make more heat by moving the muscles. You'll start to shiver. Usually from the chest muscles outward. This too can be a problem if it goes on too long as it tears through your nutritional reserves and taxes heart increasing the risk of heart attack or stroke if your body temperature drops below ninety five degrees Fahrenheit thirty five Celsius hypothermia sets in your blood pressure drops and your breathing becomes shallow. This means less oxygen is getting to your brain which can bring on slurred speech. Confusion nonsensical action and none of which will be particularly helpful.

Exploring The Canopy With 'TreeTop Barbie'
"Hey everybody matty Safai. Here was shortwave reporter. Emily Kwong today. We thought you might appreciate a little joy in your life especially now that's right here on short wave we want to bring you up. Does it explain what's happening with the corona virus but also episodes that feature other interesting science like this one from the very first week of shortwave. It's probably one of my favorites. Oh yeah mine too. It's got rain. Forests SLINGSHOTS A DECADE-LONG CONFLICT WITH BIG Barbie bad gets rope burn. Let's not love the rope? Burn Kwong it's clearly the roburt. These are the sacrifices you make manny right onto the show enjoy. You're listening to shortwave from. Npr One day this past summer I got to visit a rainforest. Okay that's licorice fern. That is the scientific name. Is Paula podium vulgarity? Ecologist NENAD CARNEY. This is called sledge. This is called Club Moss. It's actually very primitive Plant leaning has been studying in exploring ecosystems like this for thirty five years. Okay so that is called Bikram. That's another species of Moss. I like to call it pledging moss. Just because it's so soft and so please so much like a little pillow. Here's Flynn's this is recommend trim. There's like three four different species of MOSS RIGHT THERE. Couple other things about this rainforest. You're probably thinking rainforests so tropics now. We were in the Pacific Northwest Olympic National Forest in Washington state and it's called a temperate rainforest A. Rainforest because we get it's characterized by having a lot of rainfall there about one hundred twenty inches a brain a year. The other thing about this trip to the forest. Is that all these plants so see how soft these mosses are yes. Don't you just WanNa sleep on them? Yeah all of new weenies. Decades-long work. Okay I'M GONNA come up side by side with you. All of it is about wow sixty feet off the ground for many. This is awesome awesome. This is called the canopy pretty much everything above the forest floor all the way up to the tops of the trees. Come up with me now. Little Rope canopy. Here is a dizzying thicket of bright green leaves and Mosses and ferns all bathed in sunlight. And we knew very little about it because the canopy is literally called the last biotic frontier. It's been so poorly studied. It really aren't very many people who studied the canopy. Feel like when you say. The last biotic frontier should look off into the distance. Ready to the last biotic frontier so today on the show pioneering scientists Malini non Carney on the canopy plus a little later on in the episode weenies decades. Long fight to get more women into science. And how she found unlikely ally in Barbie. Yeah I thought it was weird too. It's not that we're the sticker up and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. Alright so let's back up down back on the ground in Olympic national forest. Malini told me that in the grand scheme of things canopy sciences. Actually PRETTY NEW. People have been studying forest for centuries but it's only been in the last twenty twenty five thirty years that people have actually climbed up into the forest canopy to understand the environment up in the tree tops. One of the hurdles for scientists was literally just figuring out how to get up to the tops of the trees so noelene a few friends figured out a way to adapt some mountain climbing techniques to get up into the canopy and that means shooting ropes into the trees. So I invented this thing called the master caster which is metal rod and we welded it so it has this little hole here for the line. Basically this master caster thing is part fishing. Rod Part slingshot. This looks like a garage sale. A fourteen year old boy's dream could both and and so with a fishing weight loaded into the slingshot. So I'm thinking right up there. Malini cast masterfully. You we set the ropes now on your weight on this got harnessed in step down and then started the long hard process of inching up the road. You're going to go into a crouch and lift your legs up. That's kind of like a caterpillar and then San exactly you. Well you know. I've got to kind of over. The course of her career researching canopies in the Pacific northwest as well as in the forest of Costa Rica. Malini has documented all kinds of things about the canopy sixty feet up this giant maple tree. She shows me one of the cooler ones. Just looking at the underside of these mosses like. There's this canopy soil Allowing Dig Samat over here. Malini peels back a thick fistful of Moss from the branch on the tree. Instead of bark we're looking at tightly packed bed of Brown dirt. I mean that has actual soil that is basically composed of the dead and decomposing. Moss's that live up here and there are like earthworms that live up. Here are a big round up exactly. It's called into canopy soil. Wow look at that. And it's a weird you know you hear smelling the soil smell. But you're you know you're up sixty feet above the forest floor. So it's it's this sort of whole world that the canopy creates they're living plants or mosses there ferns their soil and it's all kind of invertebrates that live here birds that forage for these invertebrates that live in the canopy soil. So it's like this microcosm this mini co system. That's going on kind of independent of the forest floor. But at the same time interacting the forest as a whole of course today canopies all over the world face threats from climate change from logging fire deforestation and a lot of work. Now is about trying to figure out what would happen. If we lost such a complex interconnected ecosystem. I think it's important for canopies to be as intact as possible. Because they do foster so much diversity that you can get seventy species of mosses on a single tree and each of those mosses sort of living life with its insects and invertebrates and supporting birds. And so it's just part of this sort of whole cycle of what makes a primary important. Here's another thing leany discovered when she was first getting started in canopy research. There were very few women. Scientists doing this kind of work and so she set out to change that this was. This was just a fabulous day. That happened in my lab forest. Canopy lab undergraduates worked there. My graduate students would work me and we were just kicking around by these. Look how could we make the forest canopy more meaningful to mattress other scientists but to regular people like how about young girls? They need encouragement. And somebody said. Well what about Barbie aright pause Barbie time because she was busy enough helping to basically create an entirely new field of scientific study in the early two? Thousands deleted decided. You know in her free time she would try to create market and get into the hands of little girls and boys everywhere treetop Barbie. What took iconic doll which is so symbolic of what young girls aspired to. What if we just put this shell around her? Which is a canopy biologist? So called Mattel the company that owns Barbie and then when I propose this idea they said no no no. We're not interested that has no meaning to us We make our own barbies. You know you can't do this. Forget it forget it. So that's when we said well. Why don't we just do it ourselves? And if Mattel's not going to take a couple of trips to goodwill later to get some recycled barbies with the Angela's making our top barbies. And I started bringing campy Barbie along with me and you know talking to my fellow scientists and saying look guys we not only have to do our good science we need to start encouraging people from outside science and and this is one way that we might do it trees are wonderful arenas for discovery this is Malini is two thousand nine tedtalk which by the way is a hugely nerve wracking thing for scientists. And you're hooked up to this hands-free Britney Spears Mike to give a talk. That will basically be your top. Google hit for life to stand on stage. Showing off a little plastic treetop Barbie. Should I really be spending time with this? Are PEOPLE GOING TO THINK? It's weird that me as a scientist and me as a woman scientist is a brown woman. Scientist is spending her time doing this. they're sort of risk. That goes along with that but I felt that the potential good that could come out of it of providing a real role model for a little girl. Who doesn't even know that that the canopy exists to study. You know like when I was a kid and so if that can happen then I think it's worth the risk what we do my students in my lab and is we buy barbies from goodwill and value village. We dress her enclosed that have been made by seamstresses and we send her out with a canopy handbook. And my feeling is thank you that we've taken this pop icon and we have just tweaked her a little bit to become ambassador who can carry the message that being a woman scientist studying treetops is actually a really great
Golfer Rich Beem on Q School and Beer Guts
"Let's get back to our interview with rich. Beem in this time period q-school. How did that work is that? How is that what? Your Path was to the PGA tour or able to just signed straight up for Q-school. Did you buy the minor leagues? Basically did I literally went straight from the pro shop to the PGA tour? So I'd won the section the Section Assistance Championship in nineteen ninety. Eight and nineteen ninety. Eight is what I really start playing really good and I have no idea what it what. How old are you at that time? Then Ninety eight I would have been twenty eight okay. So you're not a young. You're not a young Modo outta college but but naive for sure and I'll get to more of that later on but I went to q school. I won the assistance championship and it used to be years prior. That would actually get you a bypass of going first stage. And and so I would have been exempted second-stage although in nineteen ninety eight. They took that out. They said Nope you. You still have to go to first day so I had to go through all three stages of Q-school and I ended up in first one was in Scottsdale at a golf course called talking stick Ben Ben Crenshaw bellcore design fantastic track but I had to shoot sixty seven the final day to make it through to make it through first Yup through I age and then the second the second one was in Houston on the final day I was in by about two or three going into the final round and I was to over through six holes and on the seventh hole. I had a shot with a wedge but in the rough and I thought Flyer no-fly I don't think flyer it was a flyer and I absolutely air mail the green by like thirty yards and I got no shot. I have zero shot so I get back over there I find it. I hit it back to the front of the Green. I got sixty feet left. I'm choking and a mad on the same breath I mean I can't control myself. I'm literally trying not to vomit because I know that making the finals is a big deal well before I even thought about it. I pull the trigger. Hit knocked it in and then birdied the next two holes in the night. I shot I. I shot seventy one and got through comfortably at the end of the day but there are some the pressure of the stories you hear about Q-school in about how much pressure puts on you. It's unbelievable because if you don't get through second-stage you've just wasted five thousand bucks you nothing you guys that you got no status anywhere and so that was a big deal. That was a huge deal for me. In fact I funny enough bill hyme who caddied for me for fourteen years and come back and county for me. When when I turned fifty he actually was same venue. He lost in a playoff back then. They had a playoff. He lost in a playoff to get to the finals and then he actually drove out to finals. In case anybody withdrew and finals he was the first alternate in. Nobody dropped out in you. Figure that out of the two hundred seven guys are at finals. Somebody one guy nothing. Nobody dropped out so Turned out to be in both of our favors because he had a great career together and he's one of my closest friends but it was pretty funny. How how that'll happen. And you make it all the weight. How many how many. I looked up your class right here on Wikipedia. You have forty one guys make it through. How many are you estimate? I don't know the answer to this. But how many are you? Estimating had to go through from first stage all the way through the. There's a few of them that had to come to be fair. I don't know what the I mean. You Bo Van Pelt Charles Warren Jeffrey Hart and Rio Bravo and David Seawall in Roy Sabatini David Zero. Pga TOUR STARTS HERE. The only guys on there that had needs zero. Pj torstar so my buddies that came out of that was Bo. Van Pelt. Brian Baird Bird. I got to be close with. Oh I'm drawing a blank. I can't believe I'm drawn blanks on this. I'm so bad with names. It's killing me but I you know there's a bunch of guys that I became you know just because we went through that process together. It really was one of those weeks where you just. Kinda put your head down and you just keep on going. I know Mike. We're want it Mike sposa. That's the guy that was going to expose him. Brian Baird just because we we hung out together when we because right after. You got your car. You went to a class and we went through media class which I think that everybody in the room. Everybody well I I know for me. Factually I didn't hear a single word at. I know that the big Gulp in my hand wasn't really a big old. It was a big but it wasn't. It wasn't as advertised. So what? Yeah what is your. What is your reputation. Did you have a partying reputation on a founded reputation? Well-founded yeah I'M NOT GONNA Deny I. It's it's interesting because I think that a lot of the guys in there it's true. I listened soon as I get done playing golf. I like to have beverage. I absolutely have to have a beverage. I'm not going to deny that one iota. It was kind of in the air though when tiger was kicking everybody's ass and workouts were becoming super popular fitness. All of that sports psychologist. I mean all of it was it was. You know that's how it was but I mean before the final round at the Kemper Open and ninety nine at a big old fat enchilada plate and four cores. Lights that my dinner. That was just how I didn't you know and I think a lot of times. It was frowned upon where in generation. Before that you know. It's kind of like smoking. Everybody everybody used to smoke Nobody smokes right. 'cause it's frowned upon. It's looked down upon right but I listen. It was good. I had some good times. There's no doubt about it you know and I was successful at what I did now. I did it so well you away. At least a lot of people were some people work. You need some sort of release. I imagine after Tournament Golf. So when I when I played in tournaments like Inbetween Rounds Dude. I need a drink after a grinding for four or five hours and I think that there's there's something to that. Yeah I think there's a lot to that. I think that there's I think for different people at it. You know having having a drink it's more psychological because I needed because I've got eighty and I needed a way to stop thinking about golf. I needed a way to sit there. And not fret over what my stroke or what. My swing felt like or anything like that. Because if 'cause I could sit there and just go nuts. I still do go nuts. I mean there's a lot of time laying in bed in the middle of the night and I'm literally thinking about my putting or I'm thinking about my chip. I'm thinking about something that has to do with golf. That's just the way mine works. You know after a while you just get tired of that. Sure you just get burnt out of thinking about it all the time. It just eats gnaws at USA for for me when it came to the PGA tour in tournament. Golf I mean listen I I. They're probably very few rounds very around probably more so today. I I don't have. I don't drink a lot when after I play golf. Just kind of getting to that age and my body just doesn't like it that much anymore but I just I needed to have something to kind of smooth me out because I was so high strung and listen to other people do it different ways some guys want to go do push ups some guys. WanNa go running. I liked the smell of of wooden barstools and inside of a sitting at the bar watching TV. Well I think that there's a lot of people out there that kind of long for those days on the PGA tour both players and fans kind of you know a Lotta people love the some of the beer guts and that kind of culture seems to have gone by the way word and would you say you were one of the guys that kind of kept that going into the two thousands and who were some of those guys would kind of more celebrate that lifestyle though the unfortunately he's not on tour anymore but Anthony. Kim was legendary. Yeah legend give me absolutely everything. You've got to be fair. I mean some of it. I don't quite recall but I mean I remember. I didn't even hang out with them. I didn't hang out with them a lot off the golf course. I think in. That probably was good for both of us because I think we would have enabled one another quite a bit but I mean I remember Vegas a couple of times and you just you. You hear the stories about you know. There was a five day event and he was out and he was legend. I mean he would. He would go hard and he was not afraid to spend money. I mean the kid was unbelievable. Talented player I mean. There's no doubt about it. And but he was he could go. There are some guys that could could fly. I mean I for me. It was more I actually would. I would have probably sit there with my caddie and hang out with my caddie more than even I'd probably go sit in the caddy room. Instead of hang out up in the in the players locker room I spent more time just going out today with my caddie than I did any other players but you know you could hear stories about some guys who like to go and some guys when I first got on tour. There's a few guys Ted purdy would. It was always fun. Hang you know especially when we had missed the cut. I mean Ted was always good to hang with. It's not like John. Daly ask you know where you would go and where you would just go into your ran into a wall. And then you'd back up and run through the wall and go. I mean it was in by our standards. It was fairly tame but just sitting around. Just having a giggle and and enjoying life and whatnot. Not Letting not letting anything get you down you know after misguide or or celebrating after after a nice week cabinet evidence solid week or something like that but you know there are some guys that that are very quiet about how they do it but I promise you there's guys out there that are right in the middle of it and they like to have fun. Well who's your caddy that you that it was at Steve. Duplantis Steve duplantis was my caddy for the Kemper. Open win he was my he was Caddy for me for probably about five months five months and I finally said I can't hang with anymore. Yes we're just a bad influence on each out part of it but I I think though in one of my rare mature moments. I figured that you know what probably needs somebody. That's a little more grounded and I went through probably three or four guys so I found the right one and then once I found the right
Coronavirus Wreaks Havoc On The Global Shipping Industry
"San Francisco is of course home to a very busy port. The vessels that travel in and out of there being hit hard the corona virus is wreaking havoc on the entire global shipping industry. And this is all coming on. The back of a protracted trade war with China Amperes. Jackie Northam reports an bright blue crane clamps onto a shipping container sitting on a flatbed truck effortlessly picks it up sore sixty feet in the air and stacks it on top of five other containers. Toast the new crane-operator he's very slow. Visually it swam Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam Joe Harris a spokesman for the Port Virginia in Norfolk says the cranes are part of a new eight hundred million dollar expansion here. The third busiest port on the east coast. There's a lot of moving parts here so many pieces to it. There there are no incidental moves. Everything is planned. It's truly like a like a watch but the corona virus has upended the precision planning here and at other ports throughout the US and around the world the global supply chain was interrupted when Beijing imposed travel restrictions China Manufacturing slowed. The docks were quiet. Chinese exports ground to a halt as a result. Cargo ships are being idled in dozens of sailings have been cancelled says John Reinhardt. The CEO of the Port of Virginia. There've been over one hundred twenty ships that we're gonNA come to the United States. That have been blanked. So that means they're not sailing for the periods of late. February march and April. You could be talking anywhere from fifteen to thirty percent of the freight that normally flows in and out of this country will not be happening. This slowdown is affecting shipping. Companies Large and small worldwide Maersk. The world's biggest container ship operator warned its earnings would be lower basil. Karadzic's CEO of new york-based Crisis Marine advisers says. The past decade has not been good for shipowners. The demand has been growing at a slower rate than at dawn inch supply. So they're all the shipowners right now. Do not have much money to spare. Disruption is having a severe knock on effect for other parts of the shipping industry says Western Lebar. Ceo of the Harbour Trucking Association in Long Beach California. It's a bad time for everybody. There were three hundred teamster drivers that were laid off just last week because of the inability to have enough rate for them to move. We've seen employee. Drivers take a voluntary reduction hours for some of our companies as much as twenty five to fifty percent of ours well over half of Chinese exports to the US are unloaded in California and the Port of Los Angeles. Long Beach is the busiest complex in the country. Labar says one in every five jobs in Long Beach is directly or indirectly related to the port. Andy says businesses are down sixty to seventy percent since the beginning of February. But Lebar says there is a flicker of hope. The Corona virus is starting to ease up in China. We're hearing many of our customers. That manufacturing is starting to pick back up in China that the ports in China especially the main large port. Shanghai is now getting back to full operations and the hope is that in a week or two maybe we can start to dig ourselves out of this and get back to full operations but Labar says there is a challenge ahead to consider whether the corona virus spreading across the US will affect port operations here as it did in China.

SpaceX Starship prototype explodes in test again - UPI News
"Bob is covering an explosion at starship well a planned explosion Bob very good evening to you planned for why good evening to you good evening thank you listeners I've completed my February happy birthday fundraiser and they were very generous I cannot express how I appreciate people giving their hard earned money for something that I give them for free I really appreciate that but all right yes starship there it is this is I don't know if the plant explosion John but starship is they're building a series of prototypes with the going to be testing stuff and part of the things that you're seeing is the welding the puts the stainless steel hold together and that is the whole is also the walls of their fuel and oxygen tanks they are probably doing a lot of pressure tests which means they sometimes will pressurize things to add to fans and we don't know if this was the plan here but either way what happened is and there's a great video you can watch a behind the black I posted the video of it of the thing during their prep teammates for what was supposed to be pressure test and then it suddenly explodes and they literally leaps off the test stand and then falls on the car and crashing into a a starship prototype they're already beginning to build a the next prototype and they're gonna do more pressure test they say they might do this pressure test with Laura so it's not explosive and middle initial literally they would just simply be testing to see if those welds he'll let the ever in hold every time they do the test they're going to be asking whether the wealth hold and see if they can get him get the technology right so that they can put together a whole with well welding it together so that it can hold the pressure is necessary for a fuel and we go from a man to craft to a robot craft this is Northrup Grummond and they have a robot looking to dock with the satellite why do they want such a thing well they haven't looked they've done it this is a big deal John this is a very big deal this is something originally being developed by no orbital ATK which was purchased and merged into north of Grohman it's called the mission extension vehicle on the going to build a series of these and it's literally it's a service they're offering to the telecommunications satellite industry and to others as well whereby you've got a satellite in geosynchronous orbit it's in perfect working condition except it's run out of fuel well the mission extension vehicle that levy can dock with it and it's the these satellites don't have docking ports but with the MTV does is it uses the nozzle of the synchronous satellite engine as its docking port and it has a finger that grabs the nozzle and a box with it and then the extension vehicle in the V. then provides guidance and attitude control for the satellite and so they docked with the satellite that was built something like thirteen years ago they did this last week the first docking ever done for it with no government funds commercial commercial robotics satellite docking with a second commercial satellite that was never intended to be docked that satellite in orbit flick it doesn't eighteen use can use and now it's colonel doctor who the five years and bring it back to life it had been decommissioned is now going to be put back into service and be used and they have additional LEDs they want to sell this is a big deal this is the first step towards robotic repair maintenance and also the cleaning up of space junk in orbit they demonstrated that robots can do this is one detail Bob about robots cleaning up I have the space debris there are servicing satellites it's almost impossible to make a distinction when it's in space between and anti satellite weapon and a robot that means to be a sanitation man yeah this is this is true well to a certain extent however the the the I have space treaty forbids interfering with another satellite that belongs to somebody else without permission and so far known as pro couldn't act and anti satellite it says you have the capability of doing such things in a war but if there's no war going on so far and everyone is respected that rule in terms of cases where you want to maintain or extend the life or fix a satellite you make a deal with North agreement by mission extension vehicle or bike time unlimited this one it's in orbit is going to be a doctor this satellite for five years and then after that it will separate and it'll be able to to another satellite five more years and they have more coming so yes you're right it could be anti satellite but I think that should not be a reason not to do this because of the benefits far outweigh the negatives highlights a new paper in March March twenty twenty coming in March twenty twenty for a symposium ahead of us if all goes well the small sent revolution doing more with less Bob this is what you've been reporting on for several years yeah it is it what happened was I attended last week for a day a CubeSats symposium here in Tucson and it was a supposing we actually had students and principal scientists and engineers talking about their actual cubes that projects that are really ambitious the day was going to write this up I get a press release from Washington DC about a similar conference that's going to happen in a few weeks in Washington but it's going to be the typical Washington conference that I attended in the past he gets some big names they talk in generalities which is not true untrue about this coming school keeps that rate of evolution but the truth of the matter is that I was much more effective activity interesting to go to the one in Tucson because I saw a whole bunch of things for example thank you talking about the developing large inflatable balloon and handers reflective in tennis that they can attach to cube seconds would be many times larger than keep that would allow for high gain data transfer they're talking about using CubeSats to do astronomy monitoring stars in a wavelength normally came to earth and another example is monitoring galaxies but this keeps it with corporate model one galaxy for a period of several months to get data about it it is cheap enough that you could send the second set to moderate different galaxy and so there's all these different kinds of technology development that was really cool is interferometry where you have multiple telescopes you come find the images well they're going to build a cubesat which we use three D. printing to print out to log long beams like thirty feet long connected to the central Kitsap and the three together will produce to Mary sixty feet apart it's like a giant giant space telescope and that was really cool about that is the three D. printing in space by a robot so the kids have to coming down and they're really indicating how the space industry is splitting between smaller and smaller for the on man's part the flight and bigger and bigger which is state of SpaceX's scholarship for the band projects and SLS SLS the space of the seventh launch system the space launch system that has been delayed many years and most recently Bob and I reported another delay that was expected so I can't tell whether this is a new delay Arnold delay restated how is it Bob well it's understandable you have problems like this done because when I saw this article I had to read carefully to make sure he just wasn't a reversion of the delay I talked with you about your posting a behind the black last week but yes this is an additional delay last week they had predicted that the delayed for they were going to live from November of this year to April of twenty twenty one well this week today it needed that April of twenty twenty one is just too ambitious so now they're looking at middle to late twenty twenty one which would and I've heard other reports saying late twenty twenty one which means it's a full year delay for the first SLS mission one man's mission if it happens in twenty twenty one late in that year they'll only have three years left to meet the trump administration desire to get a manned mission landing on the moon by twenty twenty four I personally don't think that the possible it's not gonna happen there's a lot of reasons why not both most of the most critical of all these conflicts have funded it and secondly the technology and NASA's ability to build it is very very slow Bob is the are the serial delays on purpose because they can see that they're going to have to stretch this out so they give us just a little bite at a time or is this really poor planning on their part they get surprised the answer is yes order quote yogi Berra when you come to a fork take it because it's both eight they knew almost to you three years ago that they would have to make these long delays but what they do is they they they trickled out the delays in little bits to try to reduce the political and public relations hits to doing so of it yes the whole point of excellence is not to exceed anything is to provide a jobs program to Pauline and being there and NASA over a period of time and the cost plus contract football means the best thing that could possibly happen is that it gets extended because they'll make a profit and I want to just get more money so it's both John bel if it's a bad bad bad bad bad Bob what is C. lunch all this is this is a long convoluted story the launch was originally a partnership of Boeing Russia and Ukraine it was a platform floating platform that you could use as a launch pad and they use your cranium rockets to launch office with Boeing in Russian technology and they did a few launches in the nineties and then had a failure and basically went bankrupt but we wanted out of the business it eventually got out of the business by Russia giving them free flights on the so he use capsule for passengers I don't know if they sold those flights to anybody maybe NASA but so the Russia has control over it is supposedly as a private company mailing comical as seven is going to build it to launch commercial satellites they finally have get taken possession of C.
8 Offbeat Questions About Cruise Ships Answered
"Gary Benbridge. This is another my tips travis. There are eight questions I hear people often ask on a cruise ship or ask me about cruising. They really are slightly unusual and a little bit on the side so I thought I would actually answer them right here right now starting with this. Is there a jail on board a cruise ship. Well actually there is. What's known known as a break? Now if this some issue normally passages will be restricted to their cabin but there is on most cruise ships a brig this is normally a pretty secure cure room normally in your security where they can hold up rowdy passages or in fact I guess crew until they get to the next port and can hand them over to authorities artis if something serious has happened now in reality one of the big challenges on board cruise ships is crime. And how much crime exists onboard a cruise. The statistics would suggest crime rates are not particularly high. However it's quite difficult to understand because there's no requirement and no sort of central registry because of the way that cruises run where they're registered however one of the ways of looking at crime is there are eight serious crimes which cruise companies have to report? If they're either embarking or disembarking in the United States of those eight series crimes three of them are the most reported that salts sexual assaults and theft thefts of large amounts of property high value property. However it's not really known how much petty crime exists on board a cruise ship? There are no police police on board and security will deal with most issues so the things you tend to hear about are the more serious things saying that in terms of the amount of crime crime per thousand or hundreds of thousands of passengers. It's really low on a cruise so when a crime does happen on cruise ship it get a lot of publicity but it is kind of hard to get the stats but if you do for foul and you do commit a crime or cause a disturbance there is brick on board which you will be thrown into the second question that I get asked a lot and here is how many people die on a cruise every year. Well actually the number surprise me. Small around about two hundred deaths are recorded on cruise ships bear in mind something like twenty one. Twenty two million people crews on cruise ships every year. It's a pretty small a number. Most of those deaths are related to age the dying of old age onboard cruise things to look out for on a cruise. If you hear over the Tannoy a system of the loudspeakers Operation Bright Star that means as a medical issue on board some sort of medical emergency on board and if you actually hear Operation Rising Star Star that means that has been a death on board of course the cruise lines not normally like to publicize it if it happens because it's normally happens kind of creepy and a cabin or whatever. So what do they do with the bodies. Well actually cruise ships do have a morgue and have to carry body bags normally body. We put in a body bag. It'll be stored in the mock walk now. What happens there buddy depends a little bit on the port? Some ports will want the body to be disembarked. I guess sometimes the family disembark on other cases the body he will stay on board until the ship gets back to port. It often started in because that just makes it much easier for the cruise line and often for the family to deal with the third question is is it a ship or is it a boat a lot of people on cruises go crazy when people call a cruise ship a cruise boat. So what is the right terminology terminology. Well in the whole military and all the maritime world's one of the rules that people use is you can put a boat on a ship the competition on a boat if you look at cruise ships they actually have boats on them. They have life on them so that does make them so. It's kind of informal thing. Another point of view is is anything over. Twenty meters of sixty feet is considered a ship so actually for example and river cruising longtime. They were called river boats because because they were shorter than sixty feet long however the general view is that anything's over that size is ships as in the military world. Anything of that size is I liked to be called a ship in practice. There's no right or wrong. However people who are into cruising will tend to call it a ship and and not about you'll even find some crews captains please so strong and so I've been on cruises for example on celebrity cruises where Captain Kate is is renowned for a badge that she wears which says it's a ship not about the next question I hear lot and it's actually one thing I wondered about for a long time is? Why is the safety drill called a muster drill? It's quite hard to find out the reason for that but it seems to be. It's always been called that and it's comes from the word muster muster which means to gather and it's stuck. It's become one of those terms for the safety drill very important. Of course the safety drill has to be done within. Twenty four hours was of passengers embarking. Since Costa Concordia that's become even stricter and now cruise lines do that. Before the ship actually sets sail the fifth question and is. If you've ever looked at daily program you'll see a couple of people have lots of Friends of bill and Dorothy. For example. Have lots of friends so the question you could ask is. Why on Earth do bill? W dorothy and Jimmy have so many friends that they actually have a meet up or friends of Bill. W you was the one that really kicked it all off and it's because cruise lines originally didn't want to say that they were hosting alcoholics. Anonymous Meetings Built W. refers to William or bill w Wilson who was one of the CO founders of the A. Dorothy was the codename way back when for the LGBTQ jibbed community you'll find nowadays that very few cruise lines talk about friends of Dorothy meetings and they will just call them. LGBT MEET UPS nowadays. It's the Dorothy slang word has kind of disappeared people dischord LGBT. The other one that you may see although it's much less common is friends of Jimmy and friends of Jimmy. Que refers to the or narcotics anonymous which was founded by James Kenan most cruise lines though will tend to direct people looking for an NA meeting friends of Jimmy K to the Friends of Bill W meeting. So that's why Bill Jimmy and Dorothy have so many friends. Yes and meet UPS aboard the ship and other question that I hear a lot is is it saltwater. In the toilets of course no one's going to get close enough enough to actually find out and test for themselves. Well actually originally. It was saltwater in the toilets that's before desalination plants became really really expensive and were just just prohibitive so salt water was actually used both in the showers and also in the toilets that created a lot of problems because caused rust and all sorts of problems within the actual equipment. But it was originally saltwater. Today it's not salt water. The next question is where does all this clean pure non-salted water come from. There's actually three places that it can come from on a cruise ship. The first and the most traditional is what's known as bunkering bunkering is maritime term for loading loading water on board a ship and of course if what is bunkered on a cruise ship. It's tested on both. Make sure it's all safe to drink. However nowadays cruise ships will tend to make their own water and two ways of doing that the first of the processes that cruise ships use themselves on board is known as steam? Evaporation so this is where the cruise ship uses uses the heat. The huge amount of heat that's generated by the engines. They take salt water. The heated up it evaporates the water evaporates all assaults and stuff is left behind. They then turn the steam back into water through condensation and they have water that they can entreat and make ready the other process S.. which is the most common process is known as reverse osmosis? So what happens here is was taken on board. And it's basically pushed through the microscopic screen which then keeps all the salts in the stuff like that behind and any of the fresh clean water go through because the water is then treated and make sure that it's safe to drink and consume and soon so this is the key ways that the ship gets water that people drink and use on board so water is perfectly safe drinking. It's processed and treated extremely Tarini thoroughly before it's sent through the ship for consumption and use. The next question is around waist now clearly on ships of several thousand people well an enormous amount of waste is going to be generated by human waste and rubbish. Waste so what actually happens to all of that waste. Let's talk first of all about surge. Judge Binds National Law. Oceangoing vessels are actually able to put surge in the once that twelve miles out from from land and they're going to certain speed however cruise ships are however not allowed to do it so all cruise lines which part of clear the Cruise Line Association abide right by policy which says that no untreated surge will be put it into the sea anywhere in the world at any time. So what happens. Well it's treated on board. First of all they take blackwater which is basically the human waste and take gray waters. That's water that's come out of things like the kitchens or the basis or the showers. Those two would is is all combined in certain ratios there then treated by nearly sort of bacterial treatment which purifies it then goes through another process they use UV to really treat the water rather than chlorine or chemicals because ultimately the water wants treated and is back to being completely it'd be safe and free of impurities is released normally back into the ocean when it comes to food waste all the food waste is collected and it goes through. These grinders turned turn basically into a runny mixture which then is normally also able to then be released into the sea sometimes of course it is then pumped in on land when it comes to other waste raced this whole process. What's important to know is crucial to have an environmental office on board charge of all of these various operations? So when it comes to waste your cabinet shoot for example. We'll sort through all of your waist and sorted into plastics to metals into paper. All of the glass is collected on board. It's sorted by color it's ground down and then disembarked because it sold off as waste can be recycled on land papers sorted out it's all bundled up and again that's handed of And sold for recycling and the same is done separately for Kabul and of course for things like metal cans all crushed down so there's a huge pick operation. One things. I would encourage you to do if you have a cruise ship that offers a full behind the scene to now you'll have to pay for these but it will take you right and down as the deck of the ship and you get to meet the environmental officer and you get to see the whole processing plot and it's really interesting to see how they take the waste both human wastes and the gray ray water and paper and glass and cans and it's really good to see firsthand how it's actually dealt with so this whole big recycling operation that takes WCHS place onboard cruise
