Ocean between Europe, Africa and the Americas
Juvenile Glaucous-winged Gulls are taking flight over downtown Seattle. In Chicago, young Ring-billed Gulls are heading for Lake Michigan. And before long, juvenile Herring Gulls will be soaring over the Atlantic Ocean. More and more, some gulls are raising their families in the city. They nest on flat, sunny rooftops that are generally inaccessible to humans. When chicks like this Western Gull fledge, they're soft brown, and won't have adult plumage – that flashy white and gray or black crispness – until they're four years old.More info and transcript at BirdNote.org.

BHA Podcast & Blast with Hal Herring
BHA Podcast & Blast, Ep. 156: Florida Backcountry Lawman Bob Lee You may remember Bob Lee from Free the Ocklawaha River!, where he and Hal first met. Bob is one of the leading voices for the removal of Rodman Dam and the reconnection of the Ocklawaha River to the St. Johns and the Atlantic Ocean. He knows of what he speaks: Bob Lee was the game warden for this part of the American backcountry – the oldest of Old Florida – for over 30 years. He wrote about his adventures in his excellent first book Backcountry Lawman and expanded on that success by gathering other Florida warden tales in Bad Guys, Bullets, and Boat Chases. Artifact hunter, historian, fisherman and hunter of both man and beast, Bob Lee is a master storyteller with a lifetime of rollicking adventures to draw from. Join us for the ride.
National Parks Traveler Podcast
There are external and internal influences that can impact units of the National Park System. Urban sprawl can strangle parks and their natural resources. Wildfires can sweep across boundaries and into parks. Rivers can flood and wash out trails and roads, as we saw last June at Yellowstone National Park. Today we're going to be talking about looming threats to Yellowstone and Cape Hatteras National Seashore. In the case of Yellowstone, it's a gold mine proposed to be sunk into a mountain towering over the park's northern entrance at Mammoth Hot Springs. At Cape Hatteras, it's the Atlantic Ocean and the natural dynamics of barrier islands, which were not designed by nature to remain in one place. Instead, they shift as the ocean erodes beaches and moves sand about. In both of these cases, there are solutions in sight. The question is whether they'll succeed.

It seems like not all that long ago, to me anyway, that potatoes were a big deal on the South Fork of Long Island. Throughout the past several decades, though, potatoes, and farmland in general, have given way to development of large summer homes, as the pressure to sell the exceedingly valuable farmland between Montauk Highway and the Atlantic Ocean became unavoidable for many local farming families. Lots of farmland has been preserved through the efforts of local governments and local NGO's such as Peconic Land Trust, but that pressure to turn over agricultural land to development persists. One way to preserve farmland, however, is to make good use of it. And while the sale of potatoes may not be able to economically justify farming the land here, distilling those potatoes into high quality spirits, which can fetch high prices among discerning spirits drinkers, may just be enough to push the value of those potatoes high enough to preserve the land. At least that's the plan for the Foster Family and the land they farm in Bridgehampton and Sagaponack. In order to convert those potatoes to high quality booze, they need a master distiller, and that's where Matt Beamer comes in. Formerly a craft brewer out west (actually still a brewer, since, as you'll hear, you must first brew beer to produce vodka), Matt has brought his skills to Sagaponack, where he produces vodka, gin, rye whiskey, bourbon and several other spirits to high acclaim and commercial success. Matt sat down with me to discuss the challenges and rewards, as well as the process of distillation, aging, bottling and selling those spirits. And if the Foster family has their way, they'll find a way to preserve their farms and their farming heritage.

A grim piece of Argentina's history is set to be returned to the country - a Skyvan plane once used in so-called "death flights" by the military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. Victims of the regime were thrown alive from the planes into the Atlantic Ocean. In 2010 one of the planes - Skyvan PA-51 - was tracked to Fort Lauderdale in the United States, and its logs dated all the way back to the time of the death flights - including one notorious flight in December 1977. Joining Kathryn to detail the incredible story behind how the plane was found, and how those flying it were brought to justice is Argentine journalist and author Uki Goñi. He was working for the Buenos Airies Herald at the time, knew most of those on the plane and narrowly escaped being rounded up with two of the victims.
Recently, news headlines have highlighted challenges that homeowners are facing as the Atlantic Ocean rises and changes the shape of our coastline.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 4-28-23. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of May 1 and May 8, 2023. SOUND – ~ 7 sec That's the sound of Toms Creek in Heritage Park in Blacksburg, Va., on the morning of April 25, 2023. Winding through the lowland portion of this 169-acre park, Toms Creek's floodplain features a number of vernal pools—seasonal bodies of water that typically dry up during the summer and provide spring habitat for amphibians, birds, and other creatures. Have a listen for about 20 seconds to some mystery bird sounds recorded near the creek and one of those pools on April 25, and see if you know, first, the four bird species you're hearing, and, second, the mobile device app used to record and identify those species. And here's a hint to the app name: a mythical, Medieval character with this name would be impressed with the app's technological wizardry. SOUNDS - ~21 sec – In order heard: Red-winged Blackbird, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Northern Cardinal, Eastern Meadowlark, Cardinal again, Blackbird again. If you guessed the birds Red-winged Blackbird, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Northern Cardinal, and Eastern Meadowlark, you're right! And if you guessed the app Merlin, you've got the right name for a highly useful bird-identification tool from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, located in Ithaca, New York. Merlin allows users to get help identifying birds by sound, photo, or answering three questions about what one is seeing. The Sound ID feature monitors birds sounds coming into one's mobile device and gives suggestions for species being heard; it currently has information on over 1000 species worldwide and over 500 in the United States and Canada. The Photo ID offers species suggestions based on photos taken by the user. And the Bird ID Wizard asks users questions about bird size, color, and activity and then gives possible matches. These features are supported by another Cornell program, eBird, through which thousands of birders around the world contribute bird sightings, photos, and recordings. More information about Merlin, eBird, and other Cornell Lab of Ornithology programs is available online at allaboutbirds.org. Thanks to Cornell for providing tools to help people learn about the feathered creatures inhabiting our streamsides, forests, city streets, backyards, and other habitats. And we let one more of those creatures—a Brown Thrasher, also recorded with Merlin on April 25—have the last calls.

Tragedy to Triumph Isa 26:3 #Nightlight #RTTBROS "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." The hymn "It Is Well With My Soul" is a beloved classic that has brought comfort and hope to countless Christians over the years. The lyrics were written by Horatio G. Spafford, a successful lawyer and businessman who lived in Chicago in the late 1800s. Spafford was a devout Christian who had experienced many trials in his life, including the death of his young son and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which destroyed much of his property. In 1873, Spafford planned a trip to Europe with his wife and four daughters. However, at the last minute, he was unable to join them due to business obligations. His family set sail on the SS Ville du Havre, but tragically, the ship collided with another vessel and sank in the Atlantic Ocean. Spafford's four daughters were among the 226 passengers who perished in the disaster. When Spafford received the news of his daughters' deaths, he was devastated. Yet in the midst of his grief, he penned the words to "It Is Well With My Soul." The hymn expresses his deep faith in God and his trust that even in the darkest moments of life, God is still in control and can bring peace to the soul. One of the verses that inspired Spafford's hymn is found in the book of Isaiah, chapter 26, verse 3: "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." Just as Spafford found comfort in his faith during his darkest hour, we too can find peace and hope in Christ, no matter what trials we may face. The hymn's chorus echoes this sentiment, declaring, "It is well with my soul, it is well, it is well with my soul." This simple yet powerful declaration reminds us that our ultimate peace and joy come not from our circumstances, but from our relationship with God. The hymn has continued to resonate with Christians around the world, and its message of hope and trust in God has brought comfort to countless people in times of trial. It reminds us that even when we face the most difficult circumstances, we can still find peace and hope in Christ. As we reflect on the story behind "It Is Well With My Soul," let us remember that our faith in God can sustain us through even the darkest moments of life. Let us fix our minds on Him and trust in His unchanging love and faithfulness. And let us join with Spafford in declaring, "It is well with my soul."

Today (April 19, 2023), Johnny Ward is on Mt. Everest, aiming to summit by the end of May! Between now and his summit day, the WanderLearn Show will cover Johnny's climb up Earth's highest mountain! I'll begin each episode with an update on Ward's Everest climb, and then we'll feature an excerpt from my interview with him when we were together in Chinguetti, Mauritania. I interviewed him when I dropped in on one of his guided Mauritanian adventure trips. Later, we reunited in his adopted hometown, Chiang Mai, Thailand. About this episode Johnny Ward had no rowing experience, yet he rowed across the Atlantic Ocean with three men he had never met! Learn about his adventure! Watch it on YouTube, which features 3-minutes of BBC footage of his row! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8EQ4W0rmpg April 19, 2023 Ward update on Everest 2 weeks into our Everest expedition and sh*t is starting to get real. We finally ventured off the lovely Everest Base Camp trek to tag a 6100m (20,000 feet) Himalayan summit, Lobuche. For our Everest climb, this is simply a warm up. For me personally, it's the 3rd highest mountain I've ever climbed! Very grateful for @luckydavewatson guiding our crew. It's been a brilliant 3 days, challenging but brilliant. Climbing Lobuche is a privilege and makes me so confident I choose the right operator in @furtenbachadventures. Climbing it alone can cost $3k to $4k, but these guys add it to the expedition to avoid another rotation through the dangerous (and sometimes deadly) Khumbu icefall. The team is going strong. We've all trained hard, dedicated the best part of the last year of our lives to this expedition. Tomorrow we finally reach base camp Follow Johnny Ward on Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 4-14-23. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of April 17 and April 24, 2023. This episode, the sixth in a series on water in U.S. civil rights history, continues our exploration of water connections to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. MUSIC – ~23 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Mississippi Farewell,” by Dieter van der Westen. It opens an episode on how Mississippi River water and public health were the context for the first U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the meaning and extent of the 14th Amendment. One of three constitutional amendments passed and ratified soon after the Civil War, the 14th Amendment aimed to guarantee citizenship rights and legal protections, especially for newly freed Black people. In 1873, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in three consolidated cases about wastes from livestock processing facilities in Louisiana; this ruling had decades-long implications for key parts of the 14th Amendment and for civil rights. Have a listen to the music for about 25 more seconds, and see if you know the name of these consolidated Supreme Court cases. MUSIC – ~27 sec – instrumental. If you guessed The Slaughterhouse Cases, you're right! As of the 1860s, some 300,000 livestock animals were slaughtered annually at facilities along the Mississippi River in and around New Orleans, upstream of water supply intakes, with much of the untreated waste from the process reaching the river. Concerns over the potential for diseases from this water contamination led the Louisiana legislature to pass the Slaughterhouse Act of 1869. This law authorized a single corporation to operate one slaughterhouse facility on the Mississippi downstream of New Orleans and required all butchers in the area to use that facility. Butchers' organizations filed suit, alleging that the law infringed on their work rights in violation of the 14th Amendment's clauses prohibiting states from abridging the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States and from denying people equal protection of the laws. On April 14, 1873, the Supreme Court issued its ruling, with the majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Miller. Miller's opinion upheld the Louisiana law, finding that that the slaughterhouse monopoly granted by the state was within the police powers to provide for public health and sanitation. Justice Miller went further, however, in asserting that the 14th Amendment gave the federal government jurisdiction only over federal, or national, citizenship rights—that is, privileges and immunities—but not over rights historically considered to result from state citizenship. Miller also asserted that the amendment's equal protection clause applied only to the case of Black people emancipated from slavery. The Slaughterhouse Cases decision, along with other related Supreme Court decisions during the Reconstruction Era, created long-lasting legal barriers to federal government efforts against state-level violations of civil rights, such as racial and gender discrimination, voting restrictions, and failure to prevent or prosecute racially-motivated crimes of violence. Thanks to Dieter van der Westen and Free Music Archive for making this week's music available for public use, and we close with about 20 more seconds of “Mississippi Farewell.” MUSIC – ~22 sec – instrumental.

EXTRA INFORMATION ON THE 14TH AMENDMENT The following information about, and text of, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was taken from National Archives, “Milestone Documents: 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Civil Rights (1868),” online at https://www.archives.gov/milestone-documents/14th-amendment. “Following the Civil War, Congress submitted to the states three amendments as part of its Reconstruction program to guarantee equal civil and legal rights to Black citizens. A major provision of the 14th Amendment was to grant citizenship to ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States,' thereby granting citizenship to formerly enslaved people. “Another equally important provision was the statement that ‘nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.' The right to due process of law and equal protection of the law now applied to both the federal and state governments. “On June 16, 1866, the House Joint Resolution proposing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution was submitted to the states. On July 28, 1868, the 14th amendment was declared, in a certificate of the Secretary of State, ratified by the necessary 28 of the 37 States, and became part of the supreme law of the land.” Text of 14th Amendment Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state. Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void. Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Did you know that one simple rainstorm in the Colorado Rockies can drop some rainwater that heads to the Pacific Ocean and also some rainwater that heads to the Atlantic Ocean, hundreds of miles away? That's because the storm was at what's called the Continental Divide. Likewise, we all face “Continental Divide” issues in our work lives, our careers, and most importantly, our spiritual journey that precipitates any ultimate rewards at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Theologian John Dunn shares a story of a group of sailors who reached South America after a long and treacherous journey. They entered the Amazon River, assuming it was a continuation of the Atlantic Ocean and had run out of fresh water, not realizing that they were sailing on top of one of the biggest bodies of fresh water in the world. Some of them died of thirst. They met another ship and asked for some fresh water and were told to lower their buckets because they were sailing on fresh water. What about you? Are you sailing on fresh water and dying of thirst? Perhaps all you have to do is lower your bucket.

EXOPOLITICS TODAY with Dr. Michael Salla
Dick Allgire is a former professional news presenter who, in 1997, got interested in remote viewing projects using blind scientific protocols that would eliminate front loading. He subsequently trained with military-grade instructors such as Glen Wheaton (US Army Special Forces) and has ever since been conducting remote viewing projects involving various targets. He eventually created Cryptoviewing.com as a means for remote viewers to be trained and to collaborate in intelligence gathering on various targets. On April 14, 2023, Cryptoviewing.com released a two-hour report on the remote viewing of a target supplied by Dr. Michael Salla – a submerged space ark under the Atlantic Ocean. In this Exopolitics Today interview, Allgire discusses with Dr. Salla the genesis of the remote viewing of the Atlantic Space Ark from a meeting they held in January 2023 in Honolulu, Hawaii, where they decided to collaborate on a future remote viewing project. No specifics were shared on potential targets to prevent frontloading. In February, Dr. Salla was subsequently approached by a tasker, Ed, from Cryptoviewing to find a suitable target that would be passed along as an alphanumeric sequence. A second tasker received the alphanumeric sequence and passed it along to Allgire and three other remote viewers—Daz Smith, Edward Riordan, and Nyiam Vendryes. This double blind protocol eliminated any foreknowledge and possible frontloading of the target. The target was a submerged space ark claimed by a US Army Insider, JP, who has described his participation in three multinational missions there. Allgire discusses some of the data he and others gained through their remote viewing of the space ark. He identified hieroglyphs on walls containing ancient knowledge, spacetime portals or stargates, sarcophagi with sleeping giants, religious themes, a tunnel to an underground civilization, and a giant spacecraft/ark underwater. Allgire's results were similar to what was discovered by three other remote viewers involved in the space ark project. All these elements have been described by JP in his three reports on his Atlantic Space Ark missions.

Join us on this episode of the podcast as we speak with Jim Zozzaro and Chris Byrd about the evangelism efforts of the Boardwalk Chapel in Wildwood, New Jersey. Established in the 1940s, the Boardwalk Chapel was founded with a vision to present the Gospel to the thousands of tourists that visit the Atlantic Ocean coastal resort town during the summer season. The Boardwalk Chapel provides an excellent opportunity for evangelism training for those who seek to share the Gospel with others. During the summer months, the Boardwalk Chapel offers evangelism training to college-aged young people and paid summer interns. The training provides practical tools and strategies for sharing the Gospel with others effectively. There are numerous opportunities to serve, attend, and be involved at the Boardwalk Chapel. From attending weekly services to participating in evangelism efforts, there is something for everyone to be involved in. The Boardwalk Chapel is a welcoming and supportive community that is committed to sharing the Gospel with others. Pray for the leaders, staff, and evangelism efforts of the Boardwalk Chapel. The Boardwalk Chapel has several needs, including more staff for the summer and more people coming to the training weeks, specifically for the School of Evangelism. Rev. James Zozzaro is pastor of Christ the King OPC in Cape May, NJ and director of the Boardwalk Chapel in Wildwood, NJ. Rev. Christopher Byrd is evangelist of Grace OPC in Westfield, NJ.
The Bowery Boys: New York City History
In the early morning hours of April 15, 1912. the White Star ocean liner RMS Titanic struck an iceberg en route to New York City and sank in the Atlantic Ocean. Survivors were rescued by the Cunard liner Carpathia and brought to their berth at Pier 54 on the rainy evening of April 18.On that very spot today, a fanciful waterfront development juts out into the Hudson River, a place called Little Island which opened in 2021. This recreational oasis will draw thousands of people, New Yorkers and tourists alike, this spring and summer.But on the southern side of Little Island, peering out of the water, are dozens of wooden posts – these are the remains of the former Pier 54.And it was on this pier, on April 18, 1912, that survivors of the Titanic disembarked and touched land.This is the story of the places that figured into the aftermath and the story of how New York memorialized those lost to the tragedy.And in the end we return to Little Island and to the ghost of Pier 54, the place where this disaster became reality for most people. Where survivors were greeted with joy and where many hundreds of people faced the reality that their loved ones were never coming home.

Oh the humanity! They called it "the Titanic of the sky”. It was the length of five Olympic sized swimming pools and would fly a few hundred metres above the ground transporting wealthy passengers from one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other, and came complete with a dining room, a Sunday prayer service and even a smoking room. But it was essentially a bunch of hydrogen-filled balloons floating in the sky that could catch fire the moment they were exposed to even a small spark...which is exactly what happened on May 6th 1937, when the Hindenburg's 63rd voyage from Frankfurt to New Jersey ended in disaster. The Hindenburg was the largest airship ever built and its crash remains one of the most famous aircraft disasters in history, thanks to the graphic footage of the explosion and the chilling radio commentary of reporter Herbert Morrison.
