"Student athletes and their families celebrating a major ruling from the U. S. Supreme Court on Monday. In a unanimous vote, the court ruled the N C double a cannot ban or limit education related payments to players. But the court did not weigh in on whether athletes should get an outright salary, which is still a big debate right now, let's take a closer look at the ruling with ABC is Aaron Carter Ski Aaron. What does this ruling mean for college athletes overall and what constitutes quote unquote educational related payments? Well, there are things like paid internships, science equipment. It could be any kind of gear that they need. They want to play a musical instrument. They can get a free instrument and and it could mean all sorts of academic scholarships for for graduate degrees if they choose to pursue it, and the Supreme Court said The AH could not due to anti trust laws block those kinds of of benefits to student athletes. The delay worried about a slippery slope, saying those benefits could evolve into things that have nothing to do with education. But Justice Neil Gorsuch, writing for a unanimous Supreme Court, said the Ah is still free to impose limits What Gorsuch called the No Lamborghini rule, and so the N C double. They can still police the kinds of benefits. That the players get but cannot block schools from offering them to student

It's not a government using this approach right so united airlines out of desire both to encourage people to get vaccinated against covid nineteen and also a great deal of self interest after a lot of conversations internally what they adopted. Was this idea that if that anybody who flew and who signed up for mileage plus which is their frequent flyer loyalty program you know you get miles points for every time you fly and uploaded their vaccination card in the us. You get a little card that says you know people sign the pharmacist. Who ever sign says. Yes you got your shots. Bright would be entered into a sweepstakes a lottery and the prize. There were a bunch of different prizes but the big one the grand prize was a year of travel for to anywhere. The united flies in united's like super first class up in the front of the plane that nobody ever gets. Cause they close the curtain. Where there's good food. And i don't know really nice stuff. It's really nice. I wouldn't know about. I don't know i've only heard rumors. Apparently it's pretty great and so that that became the inducement. What united wanted to do is say yes. We want people to fly again. We want people to get vaccinated. We want people find united. Here's the reward. the you might win these fabulous prizes.

CDC to Meet on Rare Heart Inflammation Following COVID Vaccines

"Fading from view comes another potential twist. I wouldn't panic. The CDC says It will hold an emergency meeting this week to talk about a higher than usual number of cases of heart inflammation reported following Covid 19 vaccinations. Why is not entirely clear that obvious concern is that Some way. Somehow, the vaccine stimulates your immune system, which then acts against your heart causes injury to the heart. Another concern it seems to be popping up more and young people, According to a recent report, the CDC identified 226 cases of the condition called myocarditis in people, 30 or younger who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Most were mailed, and the conditions seem to occur more often after their second does with chest pain as the most common symptom myocarditis is rare across across the board. It is a rare thing, Cornwell says. Most young, healthy people should fully recover over time. A rare minority will have serious complications from it, which can be you know if you have permanent heart damage from inflammation of your heart. Um, that obviously is a serious problem. It's too early to say for certain if these cases are directly tied to the covid vaccine or the result of better reporting, But Cornwell says, it's all part of a learning process. Everything we do in medicine has risks. You know, A lot of what we do is a risk benefit ratio, and we try to apply the things where the benefits are large and the risks are small. The CDC's emergency meeting is scheduled for June 18th. Dr Cornwell says he expects will have a little more information on this in the next few weeks. Once Rachel skied

"This episode. I'm talking to dr anna. Precise ski immaterial. Scientists channel swimmer and stand up comedian about her latest venture. Writing newburgh handmade assigned to search for meaning through making. I wanted to start off with understanding a bit more about the material. I found the most fascinating in the book. Blas which as we all know to be solid actually has the molecular structure of a liquid. Could you tell me a little bit more about that. Ana yeah definitely. I think a lot of people would have heard of this of the rumor. That glass is actually very very very viscous liquid in the evidence that we have for. This is very old. Panes of glass in medieval churches are episode a thicker the button than they are at the top and intuitively. We think well that must mean that. This class has been flowing down to gravity over hundreds of years that for it must by viscous liquids while there's also a molecular argument for that as well because if you zoom into clawson and see where the atoms and molecules are inside they are. Bene- jumbled up mess they're very rigidly bonded to each other so they don't move that they their structure is what we describe as offices. Very kind of jumbled up this structural order to in particular infrastructure is very similar to the structure of liquid. If you were to have a look at water zoom in and see by the atoms molecules are inside than they would be kind of randomly tumbling over each other and in in no particular order as well. The structure of glass and the structure of bhutto's liquid is via similar. Now this is in contrast to what we describe him. It's your science. As a as crystalline materials and is is a good example of a crystalline material when water freezes if the molecules lineup in very neat rows and columns in a kind of three structural lattices. That it's very predictable. It's very ordered. It's very beautiful. And that's how we describe. The atoms inside material's crystalline site is is a good example of metals or crystalline. As well when you hate izhak from below zero degrees two zero degree celsius as the ice melts it melts at the very distinct melting temperature because its molecules are in this very distinctive crystalline ordered structure so zero degrees is enough energy to break all of those bonds between those molecules and allow them to slosh over each other emanating.

Almost every national newspaper the uk and some the lifestyle magazines occa- on diana's traveler tatler house garden will these definitions but together patron. I have a ski website who we love to ski. Dot com which is like an online magazine with lots and lots of information about over one hundred resorts to put resorts around the world. So people can go on there and find out where to stay where to eat. Yeah it's really a wonderful website. I'm so glad. I checked it out at because as i was telling you the other day i have quite a few clients who are very interested in skiing and i just don't know enough So i'm so happy to talk to professionally do so you can go on there and find out everything they can sign up for your podcast to in the podcast is called. The podcast is not connected with okay. Action packed action packed. Travel is the full name so the website is action packed. Travel dot com. And you can listen to the podcast on itunes and spotify an always places and it's a new venture for us. We started in march. And it's not just skiing. It's travel worldwide and we interview interesting people who've been inspired by travels like you some really interesting people. The first to via hot air balloon over everest for example wow snorers who've been to the north and the south pole and we've had a a man that kayaks from greenland to scotland mike. My favorite jury expert who she is. She's quite well known here because she appears on a tv show on. She's one of the world's most famous gemologist she finds. I love that episode. I listened to that it was so fascinating. I had no idea all of that when into gemology. I really didn't took it off for granted like they found a stone. I realize there was some science behind it but not as much as as the episode shared. Wow i in. Radio was many many years ago. Those days you cut up audiotape with a Originating scotch tape these young people they just get on. There are no right away. Intuitively makes me so mad.

"Matt Galloway. This is podcast from the March fourth edition of the current this winter. For a lot of people whether you're a skier or snowboarder there's nothing quite like it. The wind on your face the sun bouncing off the snow every winter Canadians chase that thrill flying down a hill with nothing but fiberglass strapped to their feet for this mom at a resort Ontario. Skiing is much more than an excuse to get the kids out of the house. It can be a lifelong sport. I think a a real piece of our heritage you just a commodity that you got. You don't even know people that you sit with on the chairlift but I don't know you. Just you got this common thing. And the gorgeous sky you know the ability to just be with nature. My youngest son had four and if everything goes well he could ski well into his seventies eighties and you can take anywhere giving them the opportunity to do. This now is so fortunate. So how long will that? Fortune last warmer temperatures mean even less snow and already this year a handful of ski and Snowboard World Cup events have been canceled in Europe. Daniel Scott is director of the University of Waterloo's master of Climate Change Programme any recently published a study looking at the impact that climate change could have on Canada's ski industry. Daniel Good Morning Good Morning. Thanks for having me. Thanks for joining us. Tell me about the study and what you found when it comes to the future of skiing. Yeah we've been looking at what climate change means for the Ski Industry Ski Tour Winter Tourism for almost two decades since or the latest studies where we actually looked at all across eastern North America so Ontario Quebec and New England or northeast region markets to see how they compared how competitor would change Which types of ski areas we might lose to climate change How resilient though will they'll be and importantly How different the future for Ski Tourism in the Ski Industry might be based on our climate choices over the next decade. I WanNa talk about what that's going to look like. How did you go about predicting the future? Though and predicting what kind of snow there would be on the hills in the years yeah. That's a great question so twenty years ago when I started doing this I started in the Ontario market and what I was hearing from the ski industry themselves as they said. Look we're seeing stuff in the press and it's not representing our operating realities. They're not the people who are doing. This modeling are just modelling naturals. No pack they're not putting our snow making into it and it's misrepresenting risk and you know I took that to heart so we came up with a new model that has the natural snow packing it. but also builds in their ability to make snow under certain conditions Into amounts that they can do with their current some snow making systems. And so we've then utilize that same model again in in Quebec in in the United States across the United States in Austria China Norway and other places other countries have used it as well. Take a look at the number of ski days if you look at Ontario and Quebec What could change in years ahead? When it comes to the days that people can actually ski. Yes so in our current model The the sort of current average season length and this is across all the scary is in both provinces. Quebec is about one hundred and thirty seven Days Ontario. About one hundred seventeen and if we as a as a globe if we achieve the parents claiming agreement and the ambitions that we have and they're the seasons would drop down to about one hundred and twenty one days or minus twelve percent back in about one hundred and two day average Which is also minus twelve percent in Ontario. If we don't achieve that and we sort of continue along the trajectory that we have now in terms of emissions those season losses would go up to about fifteen to twenty one percent and this is at mid century so if we look later in the century those emission those losses in the ski season go up. How bad could I WANNA get to the finances? But how bad could it get if you take a look at? I mean those are under the Paris climate targets which to your point we may or may not achieve in this great struggle to try and figure out how this country would get their it if it gets as bad as some people are predicting. What would that mean for skiing? Yeah if you look long term You know in the late. Sorta decades of the century in Ontario market and if we continue the mission director. There were on now. You could lose up to six fifty to sixty percent of the ski season so for some of those gear is that's just not financially viable so what would be we would be left with is sort of shell of the current regional market on. -Tario Quebec would do better They have a colder climate. They have a bit more allegation. They're further away from the Great Lakes so in Quebec you know. Even under that higher emission snare their losses are usually less than twenty five percent. Um and they have a longer season to begin with so But good chunks of the market would be lost. And that's that's something to your previous interviews point you know there's there's there's you know millions or billions of dollars in revenue and business. There's thousands of jobs but there's that cultural component as well. It's a lifestyle for many people even under the modest targets. That people are trying to achieve. What would that mean financially for those those resorts for and the town? I grew up in a ski town in Southwestern Ontario. The town is essentially built around the ski industry. What would it mean for those industries and for the economies that are based around that if you have ten or fifteen percent drop in the available ski days? Yeah it's partly the timing but you know that's a great point because I think it was about seven years ago when when Blue Mountain is one of the Ontario Bigger Ontario Skier is couldn't get open Their their layoffs were in the fifteen hundred sixteen hundred temporary. But but that gives you an order of scale right. So it's like shutting down a manufacturing plant or something in those towns. Many politicians overlooked the importance of tourism in our economy and to your point many many communities. That's that's a huge employer both summer and winter. So if if there's a big drop in people coming or a big gap in terms of operating ski areas There's real losses there and and we've sort of looked at a couple of different indicators of what a financially viable ski area would be so you have to get open for Christmas New Year break because that can be about twenty five percent of the revenues for some places And then you have to have a season length of many live told us well if we can get to a hundred days we can recoup our our operating costs and stay in business and in Ontario. Even even in the fifties You know you go from about ninety. Four percent of the scary is that can do that now. Down to about twenty percents or even less so we know even if we achieve the peirce climate agreements and the emission reductions related to that there will still be some losses in these eastern North American Ski Ski markets. We heard a little bit of the sound of skiing at the Brimicombe Ski Resorts in Oshawa Ontario. Mark Rather for just the general manager. There have listened to what he's got to say years ago we used to all our water from a creek that went across the bottom. It's a tributary of the again. Rosca river and In nineteen ninety seven we. We built our first off line Reservoir and we expanded on it three times. So all of our water is held. In an offline reservoir we put Just over forty million gallons of water this year to get open You know we used to average around twenty six million gallons but in the last couple years of milder. The temperature is the less conversion you get from the water. In the more mild temperatures and rain we have the more snow we lose. So we have to regain remake that we make all of our snow now between minus three and minus ten years ago. All the equipment was aimed to make snow at minus fifteen minus twenty to maximize those cold temperatures. And we just don't get them anymore so we've invested a lot of money in ultra low energy snow making equipment that allows us to To make more snow at more marginal temperatures and reduce our carbon footprint. Snow making is a huge part of modern ski resort or Modern Ski Industry Takes a lot of water and energy to make that snow. What's the environmental impact of that? So most of that water at least in eastern North America's held in reservoir. So it's not coming out of natural water these And it's you know essentially borrowed over the winter Were there putting snow up? On a hill ninety nine or ninety percent plus of that re runs down in the spring into the same watershed. So it doesn't go anywhere. It's not used in the sense of for irrigation of a farm and that had evaporates and actually disappears. It's there to be reused again. And then on the energy side of things in on -Tario and Quebec markets that energy is already basically zero carbon because we have a nuclear and hydro grid and Quebec has a hydro grip So they're essentially low-carbon to know carbon already so even if you have to double the snow making You're not doubling some kind of carbon emissions so so now respect that's where we want all of the tourism sector to get to is having that sort of low clean carbon Grid and then if you have to use more energy yes you have to pay for them. But it's not contributing to climate you a skier. Sort of my. My wife has an Austrian family so I think they get the that with their passports. I just wonder whether you mean as you say. This is part of our heritage skiing in this country. What we would miss if it if it were disappear even in a moderate amount. Yeah we we've done serving with skiers in the Ontario market and New England as well To ask the question almost like the woman that you interviewed earlier said you know. Would you continue to get your kids into ski lessons? Et CETERA. If you had to take them to to a resort ski area two hours away as opposed to a local scary and then my wife and I ask ourselves that question. What would we take them all away? And when we surveyed skiers They're remarkably resilient They they want this to happen. They want to keep that that winter sport that cultural piece for their kids they wanna see them learn and then be able to pass that on so they are actually a very resilient group. I've found Daniel thank you. It's great to talk to you. It was great. Thanks for having me. Daniel Scott is director of the University of Waterloo's master of Climate Change Program.

"Better get life insurance right and now back to the show and while they weren't being you know put into battle like they still. They captured the imagination of the American public. They just thought it was. I mean I think today people still think it's cool like a soldier who skis. Right is a really cool idea. Yeah there there were movies made of them. Feature Film Documentary Movies magazine Articles Celebrating them as a real he-man remember. Why your titles of a magazine Article Said Real he-man in the mountains? They looked great. They would they would do this kind of synchronized skiing which was useless in combat but when you filmed it it looked terrific zero especially conserve skiing in the Colorado Mountains. And they're cutting through that deep powder snow and It was a very glamorous image but they weren't in the war is but they were still training as you said they went on these maneuvers while there in Camp Hill and Colorado which basically this camp that they the military built pretty much overnight. Yup really fast and these maneuvers was skiing but these are really tough. Tough maneuvers tough training. Yeah because you're up there in the mountains. It's easy to get lost. You might not get resupplied. You have to deal with extreme cold. It's it's It's a challenge and there was one particular set of maneuvers. The entire division went on not just one of the regiments was called D. series were division series in the spring of nineteen forty four and hundreds of men were hospitalized for Frostbite and thereafter. The the joke in the Tenth Mountain Division even when they were in heavy combat in Italy in the spring of Nineteen. Forty five was well. This isn't great but it's better than D series. That was Kinda interesting kind of point you made. Throughout the book was the training they received in Campell with a lot more extreme than the the climbs in the elevations they would actually experience in Italy. Right I mean when you're doing mountain warfare what you're fighting for control of the passes not the summit's summit doesn't count you want highground but you can control the passes. You can control all movement through the mountains and the passes in Italy for example. The Brenner Pass. That leads from Italy. To Austria is less than five thousand feet high and their training at twice that altitude so into all the other difficulties you have to add in altitude sickness. They acclimatized to it. But by the time you're going to be shipped out you're taking a train across the country in the ten days in a boat by time you're going to get to the battlefield into the mountains. You're going to have lost that acclimatization. So in retrospect we're all brilliant. In retrospect it would have made more sense to train at a a lower elevation than they actually did so before they got to Italy. Some members of the division got a taste for battle. This was I didn't know about this battle. This was this is the one of the few battles that happened on American soil was in Alaska Kisco. what happened to the mountain troops there? Well the Japanese round the time of the battle of midway occupied too. Small volcanic islands unoccupied no population. They're called a at two and Kisco and some people felt or feared that this was going to be the prelude to a Japanese invasion of Alaska. Or even the Pacific northwest. Now there was no way in the world that would ever happen. But they couldn't take that chance so the army sent in flatland troops to take back at two and it was a bloody battle not on the scale of Iwojima but still a lot of soldiers died but a lot of soldiers were knocked out of action because they did not take care of their feet. They've got trench foot swept cold. It got frostbite but they captured at two about when it came time to turn their attention to the next and remaining island. Kisco the army said Oh well we do have these mountain troops. Let's let's try them. So the eighty seventh one of the three regiments was shipped from Camp Hale to California for amphibious. Training did not obviously not been part of their training while they're in the mountains and then shipped off to Alaska and they classic World War. Two landing seen on occupied island. They get off the landing craft apprehensively under the beaches. And nothing's happening. Nobody's shooting at them now. Of course the the Japanese could simply have retreated to the interior waited for the Americans to come to them and so The soldiers of the tenth and there were other units and there was Canadian soldiers there as well. They advance their way up to the Ridge. Line of this volcanic island. It gets dark. The weather in the Bering Strait is the worst in the world. Clouds swirl in visibility is cut to zero and these these green troops who are on the alert hyper alert imagined that they see movement or maybe they they see movement but it's not a Japanese moving and they start to shoot one person starts to shoot them a whole platoon starts to shoot and and nobody can see where the enemies coming from. But they're they're convinced they're under attack and in the morning when the sun comes up There are no Japanese bodies but there are two dozen American and Canadian bodies and Almost all of them are from the Tenth Mountain Division so the unit is bloodied. They're no longer green soldiers but in the worst possible way they killed their brothers in in friendly fire and what happened when they went back to Camp Hale. Well they they felt they had something to prove. And I mean young men are cruel can be cruel and other soldiers Mocked up and call them buddy killers and similar names and a lot of them transferred out of the the Tenth Mountain. They were so demoralized. Not only were they not being used you know where they should have been used in the fighting in Europe but they were sent off on on this tragic fool's errand into the Bering Strait so the tenth finally gets called up to Europe. When did that happen? Where do they get sent to right? They had transferred from Camp Hale in the Rockies to camp swift which is in Texas near Austin and some of them feared that they were going to be converted into a Flatland Division that the their their mountain training was gonna come to nothing because while Senator Texas but there was a change of heart in Italy allied commanders about the usefulness of having specially trained mountain troops and so finally in November they get the summons to they don't know where they're being shipped but they know they're going to be transferred to a war zone and they get a new commander major-general Hayes Medal of honor winner from the First World War. Who is a very aggressive and creative? The commander the perfect man to lead an inexperienced still inexperienced division into battle so at the end of December and the beginning of January December. Forty four January forty five seventy five years ago there. They are shipped to Newport News. Virginia where they board troopships and spend a week or ten days crossing the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and disembark in Naples and from there. They're they're trucked up to the front line the last mountainous line of German resistance. The Germans have been putting up a stout defence for a year plus in Italy from one mountain. A redoubt to the next and they're at their last mountain redoubt which is called the Gothic line and runs through the northern a penance so florence which had been captured by the allies. The previous fall is to the South and Bologna which is still in German. Hands is is to the north and for the allies to complete clearing of Italy from German. Control they're gonNA have to break out of the mountains and break into the Po Valley Poe Valley a big open area includes Milan and leads up to the the Alps. And the Brenner Pass. Once you're in the Po Valley all the allied advantages of armor and airpower can be brought to bear with as they can't in the mountains. You can't fight a tank battle in the mountains. So it's going to be the tenths job as the spearhead of the entire allied offensive in the winter spring of nineteen forty five to clear the way to break through out of the northern penance into Po Valley. That's precisely what they do. And what were the major engagements they had during that during that stint? Well we're coming up to again the seventy fifth anniversary of the signature battles of the Tenth Mountain Division. Which was seizing. The high ground on to mountain eminences one called Ridge and the other called Mount Belvedere Mount Belvedere several mountains linked to it and I. They went up River Ridge at night in February in the dark untested troops over steep icy trails. Where they're rock climbing skills that they honed in. Colorado really came into use and the Germans were so confident that it was a steep cliff that that nut. They couldn't be attacked from that side of the mountain that they didn't posted guards. It didn't bother laying any mines and put down any barbed wire and so these Seven hundred fifty or so soldiers in the assault team from the Tenth Mountain. Division achieved complete surprise against the Germans. They captured the ridge line at the cost of one man. Wounded drove the Germans from the high ground the Germans counterattacked. Which is what they always did. And there were more casualties in the days to come but in their very first time in battle all of that training and all of that sense of initiative and and unit cohesion really played out well and it was a very significant achievement because it removes the Germans from a place where they could observe the attack on neighboring Mount Belvedere and so the next night on February twentieth the rest of the division went in this time they were the Germans knew they were coming and they had prepared the ground well with mine fields and and artillery sheen guns zeroed in on on the main routes the mountain and so it was a more costly attack but still in five days. They seized three mountain tops military planners at assumed it was gonNA take two weeks to clear the Germans off and again that that same combination of of training and a lawn and unit cohesion. Serve the tenth very well and and set up The advanced that was gonNA take place a month later breaking out of the opinions and into the PO. Did they actually do skiing during that time? Very little I mean here. You have ski troops and somebody decided. They didn't need skis skis. All went to a warehouse in Boston where they were later. Seoul as Army Surplus. They scrounged some skis and sent out some patrols to scattered. German positions are tried. Take a prisoner in those weeks before. Riva Ridge and Mount Belvedere about the thing about skiing in the pennines. It's you're not skiing deep powder snow in the rockies. You can ski pretty quietly. The powder masks the sound coach but when you're skiing through corn snow that is snow is much lower elevations three or four thousand feet. Elevation Corn Snow freezes and melts and freezes and you have ice crystals in it and it goes scratched rich so they found in the dark of night. They're approaching a German outpost in their their skis are giving their position away and the Germans were firing. They don't have to see them. They're firing direction of the sound and so after one or two experiences like that. They abandoned skis altogether. They weren't practical for the kind of terrain and the kind of fighting that they were going to do so. The Ski Troopers didn't ski but the skiing was important. Because again.

"Geology is named Don Potter and He was kind of a mentor to junior faculty and he was a avid outdoorsman. And so we. We shared that a skier and in the course of getting to know him he would tell me stories about training with Tenth Mountain Division in Colorado skiing in the rockies and then going to Italy and you never talked about the the actual fighting but after the immediately after the war and May of nineteen forty five he got leave and he went up to Mont Blanc. Any in Francey climbed from Chamonix to the summit ski down wonderful stories about his wartime experiences. And so it. Kinda planted a seed with me to this was a very interesting unit with a unique history and over the years. I written several books about mountaineering in the Himalayas and in North America and I kept bumping into guys. Who were veterans of the tents who trained in Colorado fought in Italy and would have little paragraphs describing their experiences? And then it just seemed to me. There was a bigger story to tell there and so I discovered that the Archives of the Tenth Mountain Division were in Denver the Denver Public Library and they have hundreds of collections of wartime letters and diaries and other documents from the veterans and I explored the archive and found. This is really rich and impressive history. And what do you think so? Few Americans know about their creation enroll during World War Two. Well it depends where you are in Colorado. You can get license plates that say dedicated to the memory of the Tenth Mountain Division and there are roads named for them and memorials for them and in my corner of the northeast where many of the original tense soldiers were recruited because they were recruiting skiers and people with Mountain Experience Dartmouth College loan from Chetta. Ski Team sent over a hundred of their alums into the tent. So they're they're pretty. Well remembered here but in the country as a whole in. Oh compare to say the one hundred first Airborne Division. They're less well known. Someday somebody will make a movie about some and then you know L. Bill like band brothers or whatever and I think he'll get there do acknowledgement. Well let's talk about the creation so we gotta talk about the fact that before World War Two the. Us military didn't have a mountain division. Why didn't they have mountain division well before World War Two the? Us Army never fought on a snowy mountain. There were a couple of mountain battles during the civil war but they were in Tennessee and so they weren't fighting in the snow and they didn't have any specially trained troops unlike in Europe. Where of course? A lot of the national borders are run along mountain chains appearance as the Alps and and so forth so it came naturally to Europeans. To think we need specially trained troops. Alpine troops so Germany had a long tradition of mountain troops. So did Austria sorted France. So did Italy but the US experience was quite different. One of the founders of the Tenth Mountain Division of civilian came up with the idea Charles Might Not Dole Mini Dole referred to the American Army. Right Up to before the second world. War is a tropical army because mostly it was stationed places like Hawaii or southern states or the Caribbean they had small contingent in Alaska. But they they just didn't think in terms of mountain warfare. So let's talk about this Dole Guy because the idea of a mountain amount division Amoun- an Alpine troop. It didn't start within. The military actually started with a bunch of civilians skiers sitting by a fire at a Ski Lodge Vermont. Kinda shooting the breeze. And saying hey you know. Us needs a an Alpine division. Yeah absolutely that was in the late. Winter of nineteen forty and Europe was at war. United States was not yet belligerent. But as you say these civilian skiers who had no military experience their background but they were really good skiers a couple of them were Olympic. Skiers had competed in the nineteen thirty six winter Olympics. And one of them was this guy. Many Dol- Mini Dole was an insurance executive Greenwich Connecticut. He had started skiing in the early nineteen thirties. When skiing was really in its infancy. In in the United States. There weren't many ski resorts word. Any ski lifts it was. It was a European sport that some Americans were beginning to a practice and many Dole was a kind of entrepreneurial guy he he was take charge guy and after suffering a ski accident himself on a Slope Vermont. He conceived the idea in the mid nineteen thirties of creating a rescue unit of civilian volunteers which became the National Ski Patrol System which still exists and AIDS injured skiers on resorts all across the country. So when he got hold of an idea he was he was pretty tenacious. And in that conversation in Nineteen Forty. These four skiers all civilians. Said you know we're going to get into this war and we fight in Europe. We're GONNA come up against experienced and well-trained German Italian Alpine troops. And we don't have anything comparable we need to come up with a comparable unit and so many dol- start at the top. He wrote to President Roosevelt. Who actually responded he got in touch with with the army with General Marshall. The army chief of staff and he got rebuffed several times. I mean who is the civilian but in the end he prevailed and persuaded the army to create the Eighty Seventh Mountain Infantry Regiment which was the colonel of what grew into the US Army's Tenth Mountain Division and they began training in November nineteen forty one at Fort Lewis in Washington State? So just a very few days before Pearl Harbor and so what was I mean so they? This was completely new to the military. How did they figure out? Look how what skills doesn't Alpine soldier need. How do we train the guys? How do they developed the criteria for the curriculum for that? Well they again. They relied largely on civilian advice on many Dole on the National Ski Patrol System. One of the extraordinary things about the Tenth Mountain Division unique really in the history of the. Us military is about a civilian agency. The National Ski Patrol System was in charge of recruiting for it. Many Dole's belief was that it was easier to make soldiers out of skiers and to make skiers out of soldiers that is to say you wanted to recruit guys who already had the basic skills who who knew their way around out doors in cold weather. Who were skiers or mountaineers are park rangers or lumberjacks or you know a range of occupations but many of them were recruited out of the very few schools in the country colleges and universities that had ski teams at the time so dartmouth as I mentioned and Williams College University of Oregon University of Washington Colorado University. They provided a steady stream of recruits. Some graduates many of them. Just nineteen or twenty dropping out of college to join this new elite unit because they wanted to apply the skills the abilities that they learned as civilians in recreational pursuit to their duties as as soldiers when and as you know the book because a lot of the people this guys who when when joined the eighty seventh were from college because the colleges had ski teams like the eighty-seven had one of the most educated group of soldiers out of all the military in the United States. Yeah it was an unusual unit and the subsequent regiments the eighty-six in the eighty fifth which made up the division. Same thing was true. The army gave every incoming recruit basic intelligence test. And I forget what the numbers were but if you scored above a certain number you could apply for officer candidate school and typically in a regular division something like ten percent of the recruits would would be able to do so but in the tenth mountain division at random more like forty percent or fifty percent who could have gone off to Fort Benning or the other places really trained officers but most of them chose not to do so that didn't apply for officer candidate school because they knew if they all went off not too many of them would be able to come back to the Tenth Mountain Division because how many second lieutenants can use so they would essentially be transferring themselves out of the mountain troops so instead they stayed put and as a result. You had many very qualified. Corporals and sergeants in the ranks of the Tenth Mountain Division. This a what was the culture like because this is sort of like the airborne division. Where was sort of seen as an elite unit but also like you said they're really educated from mostly from Ivy League Schools Outdoorsy type guys? Some I imagine that the regiments in the division developed unique culture in the US military. Yeah I think it did have a unique culture as you say for one thing the so the the the recruits knew how to ski and then spent a lot of time finding their way in across mountains in very cold weather but their officers. That was less true of or they're they're NCO's what the army calls cadre the experienced soldiers who are shipped into a new unit around which you develop the unit had to be instructed in skiing and other basics and the people doing the instruction were often in nineteen year old privates so you have a nineteen year old private instructing a thirty year old major have ski. The power dynamics are are are kind of different. It was a great deal of self confidence in this unit. They had a lot of unit cohesion. A lot of initiative precisely because of those dynamics and they were all volunteers. You didn't get drafted into the Tenth Mountain Division later on. During the fighting there would be soldiers transferred in who had no special mountain training. But the guys who trained in Colorado and then were sent to Italy by and large were already experienced before they joined the army in their basic skills. They were training in the mountains. And so a lot of what can army training consisted of in a basic drill out going to the firing range and so forth. You couldn't do in January so these these new recruits would show up at Camp Hale in Colorado near Leadville and they'd start skiing immediately they'd start their specialized training before they did their basic training. I mean they were trained trained to salute and so forth but the basic training often had to wait until warm weather returned. Yeah a lot of some of the letters that you quote in the book a lot of the guys talking about. It's kind of like I'm on vacation. It's kind of Nice. Just get to go see. I'm getting paid to go skiing. Eight hours a day. I mean they. They cycled through their ski training. They did beginning ski training and more Advanced Ski Training. But when they when they trained. And they're up. You know at twelve thousand feet and on deep powder snow. They were skiing five days a week. Eight hours a day with some of the best ski instructors in the World Ski champions the Coach of the Dartmouth Ski team. Walter progress among others if you wanted to become an expert skier the best place to do it. In nineteen forty three was as a soldier at Camp Hale and then on the weekends I mean look where they are there near Aspen. For EXAMPLE THEY THEY. They'd go off and they go skiing recreationally so they continue their training even when they were training. The comparison with airborne is interesting another elite unit all volunteers specialized uniforms and so forth but no members of the one hundred first airborne or I doubt very many members of the hundred and first airborne had ever jumped out of an airplane before they became paratroopers they became you know. Well trained paratroopers but that was once. They joined the army as opposed to the Tenth Mountain. Guys who are already coming in many of them with superior skills in in their in their military specialty when go back this idea of Dean self-reliant this idea of improvisation? The I think many Dole talked about the Finnish army that he was impressed by their like. That's what he liked about the Alpine soldiers. They're fighting off. The Russians voted improvise their grit their self reliance and he wanted that same sort of culture within an Alpine division. The United States. We don't really remember the finish war any more. But the before Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union so union went to war with neighboring Finland..

"Loser i i'm not sure i mean i think there's a few ways you can go about it i think that you should ask her before you answer do you say do you really want to talk about this do you want this to be a compensation yes or like or will this be hurtful to you because an end she made like discover from that response like obviously like they they did acid but but the thing is is that i don't know that they realized how much it triggers and hurts them and that's why they demanded more information i think you're right about that and you can tell from the response when you brought it up that this is a deep layered problem for them and that is that is okay you will have friends who are triggered by things that you enjoy and then you just don't talk about it yeah this is you're not talking to drugs friend like this could be something completely innocuous and totally legal like there are people who there's this amazing i'm going to butcher this and i'm kind of have to google this so we can post a link to it but there's this incredible comic about how the presence of scrambled eggs and breakfast foods triggers this this person because she woke up in the morning after being assaulted in made breakfast for the person who assaulted her and that's not to say that everybody who eats breakfast food is is terrible it's just to say that people can be triggered by completely average everyday things this is something that is not a completely average in everyday thing you need to be very very careful around her about this this is why people need a few friends yes jen or a therapist yes jen or a safe place to discuss things because no one is everything to one person right you need a skiing buddy you need a skiing friend and that's fine who will appreciate you without judgment yes and if you can't find a skiing friend then maybe don't go skiing right now yeah yeah that's true you might not be ready to ski don't forget your kneepads go member to go on the bunny hills i i just.
