10 days on Molokai, hunting, gathering, and connecting with local people to learn a bit about their culture and life there. We couldn't be more grateful to have had this kind of experience! Unlike Waikiki Beach in Oahu's Honolulu, Molokai isn't cluttered with high-rise hotels and high-end shopping centers. You have the distinct impression you're on people's home turf. The infrastructure that's there is for the people who live there. The island is small, just 10x38 miles, and it's been through its share of hardships. Bombed by the US military for ordinance testing, exploited for cash crops by the pineapple industry, overgrazed by the cattle industry, and currently, a test site for GMO crops, this island and its people have a reason not to want the steady stream of outsiders that have turned some of the other Hawaiian islands into popular tourist destinations. That said, it's still something of a paradise, protected as it is on three sides by its sister islands, and by the world's highest sea cliffs that stand sentinel on its Northern shores — there's a reason it's considered the piko, or navel, of the Hawaiian Archipelago. With its incredible lush Eastern half, complete with enormous cascading tropical waterfalls, its beautiful beaches, abundant and productive ocean, and of course the spirit of Aloha which infuses everything as a kind of constant ambiance that sets the tone for a more relaxed and chilled out way of living than mainlanders like ourselves are used to. But, Molokai has a serious exotic animal issue, and at a level like nothing we've ever witnessed before. We've heard, many times during our hunting years, about animal populations that exceed carrying capacity and require intensive management, specifically where hunting is the primary tool for doing so. But wow, we just weren't prepared for the level of axis deer overpopulation that we witnessed there. On any given day of hunting, our team would find dozens of shed antlers, and several deadheads too, the skeletal remains of animals that have died due to drought and competition for the limited nutritional resources they need to survive. Now, it's important to mention, that many of the residents there we met subsist on Axis deer, which most agree is amongst the finest venison in the world, so as far as problems go, there's at least this incredible culinary opportunity. But, despite the significant hunting pressure the locals exert, and the mortality induced by the drought, the animal numbers remain staggeringly high. So, outfitters like Ku, our guest today, guide visiting clients on incredible hunts. As you can imagine, hunting there — especially for does and ewes — feels like a valuable conservation effort. And, as far as hunts go, we're not sure it gets better! Just imagine glassing for, and spot and stalking animals — western big game style — while looking out over the Pacific Ocean on three sides of you, with Oahu, Lanai and Maui in the distance, rising up out of the turquoise and jelly-blue inter-island channels that separate these tropical land masses. And while the island and its inhabitants might be initially skeptical of visitors from away — particularly from the mainland — they are also incredibly generous and warm once you've demonstrated a willingness to tread lightly, listen, and not interfere with the vibes of a place that has had enough meddling by outsiders. While our experience there was unique, we quickly felt welcomed and looked after. We'll never forget the hospitality we experienced there. So despite being from away, we were lucky enough to be let in on some incredible opportunities, like foraging fruit near some majestic ancient ruins, harvesting abundant pools of dried sea salt from the rocky coast, crabbing with grandma at a new moon low tide, or eating fresh, raw limpets and urchins from the tidal pools overlooking the islands western coast. If you're listening to this, thinking you'd like to do some hunting on Molokai too, reach out to Ku. He's definitely your guy. Just be cool, and leave the intensity of the Mainland life at home. Trust us, you'll be glad you did. View full show notes, including links to resources from this episode here: https://www.wild-fed.com/podcast/145
We're back from summer break for the 2nd half of Season 7! We're locked and loaded over the skies of Midway Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for the biggest and most consequential battle in US Naval history: the Battle of Midway. Fought by air and sea on June 4, 1942, the United States defeated Imperial Japan and turned the tide of World War II forever. We explore the key contribution by US Navy code breaker, Joe Rochefort, from Dayton, Ohio that lead to the American's successful ambush of the Japanese fleet. We're joined by two excellent military historians: Trent Hone and Dr. Peter Mansoor, Colonel, US Army (Ret.). to discuss all things Midway. From Pearl Harbor to Doolittle's Raid, Col. Mansoor takes us through the US military's string of losses in the first six months of the Pacific War. Trent Hone, author of the upcoming book Mastering the Art of Command, about Admiral Chester Nimitz, explains the most analyzed naval battle in US history with aplomb and clarity. Buy Trent's new book here when it's released on September 15 by the US Naval Institute. https://www.usni.org/press/books/mastering-art-command Both guests help us discovery the unsung hero of WWII, Joe Rochefort, naval officer and cryptanalyst that cracked the Japanese code and set up the American surprise attack at the Battle of Midway. We go through the intelligence and how Rochefort tricked the Japanese into giving away the time and place of their big attack. Rochefort, born in Dayton, Ohio, sadly did not receive the credit he deserved for decades following Midway. Dr. Peter Mansoor, the General Raymond E.Mason Jr. Chair of Military History at the Ohio State University joins the show for the first time and discusses the battle in real time as the US sinks 4 Japanese aircraft carriers to turn the tide of the Pacific War. Trent Hone discusses the most consequential 15 minutes in American military history to that time. We also are joined by a previous guest, Beth Weinhardt, retired historian of the Westerville Public Library, from an interview about Rochefort's mentor, Agnes Mayer Driscoll. Driscoll, of Westerville, broke the early Japanese codes and taught Rochefort everything she knew about cryptography and played a role in the victory at Midway.

An unsettled Sun may have a big impact on some of the biggest weather-makers on Earth: El Niño and La Niña. These alternating events in the Pacific Ocean can bring floods to some parts of the world and droughts to others, and alter global temperatures for months or years. And a recent study found a strong correlation between the cycles of El Niño and La Niña and the magnetic cycle of the Sun. The solar cycle lasts about 11 years. At its peak, it produces many sunspots — dark magnetic storms on the surface of the Sun — as well as big outbursts of radiation and particles. And at the cycle's low point, the Sun is quiet, with few if any magnetic storms. Researchers looked at records of solar activity from 1900 to 2018. They compared that to records of El Niño and La Niña over the same period. And they found a match. When solar activity was high, the temperature of the North Pacific was high as well. That correlated to longer and stronger bouts of El Niño. And when the Sun was quiet, Pacific temperatures were lower and La Niña was more likely to appear. The extra energy during the Sun's high point may first warm a layer of Earth's upper atmosphere. That warms the air below, changing a large circulation pattern. And that warms the North Pacific, which in turn warms the Central Pacific — the birthplace of many El Niño and La Niña events. So to get a general idea of what to expect here on Earth, we may want to look to the Sun. Script by Damond Benningfield Support McDonald Observatory

Zergratran develop and manage ESG and technology focused infrastructure projects that will boost the efficiency of the global shipping and transportation system. It will start with Puerto Internacional Las Americas (PILA) in northern Colombia, a project which will use Maglev technology to transfer shipping containers between ports on the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through an underground tunnel. Key Takeaways: The Zergratran Story Byron Bennett is the Founder and CEO of Zergratran, which develops and manages ESG and technology-focused infrastructure projects around the world that boost the efficiency of the global shipping and transportation system. In the podcast interview, Joe and Byron discuss Zergratran's first project, a cheaper, faster, and cleaner alternative to the Panama Canal. Zergratran's first project is Puerto Internacional Las Americas (PILA) in northern Colombia. The project will develop new ports on the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and transfer shipping containers through an underground tunnel system. The Panama Canal is critically important to world trade and unfortunately container ships are currently waiting 12 days to cross the canal. The Panama Canal bottleneck is causing supply chain disruptions worldwide and constraining global trade. The Zergratran Vision for eliminating the Panama Canal bottleneck is below: “Imagine a 13,000+ TEU container ship that can't pass through the Panama Canal unloads at our North Pacific port. We transfer the containers across to our North Atlantic port in 15 minutes using an underground tunnel. Waiting regional ships distribute the containers onward to the US, Gulf and Eastern ports and Europe. More containers would be better dispersed and distributed and reach their final destinations faster. And the 60% of ships that now return west to Asia mostly empty, can be filled with fresh loads from South America. This coordination creates higher profitability with long term sustainability.” Puerto Internacional Las Americas (PILA) aims to add a new container shipping route across the Central America region. This will be the focal point of a system wide efficiency upgrade driven by automation, containerization, digitization, technology and connections to neighboring port facilities.

An Asian and Asian American icon of unimaginable stature and influence, Bruce Lee revolutionized the martial arts by combining influences drawn from around the world. Uncommonly determined, physically gifted, and artistically brilliant, Lee rose to fame as part of a wave of transpacific globalization that bridged the nearly seven thousand miles between Hong Kong and California. Today's guest, Daryl Joji Maeda (author of the new Bruce Lee biography Like Water) unpacks Lee's global impact, linking his legendary status as a martial artist, actor, and director to his continual traversals across the newly interconnected Asia and America.Movements and migrations across the Pacific Ocean structured the cultures Bruce Lee inherited, the milieu he occupied, the martial art he developed, the films he made, and the world he left behind. It includes the gold rush in California and the British occupation of Hong Kong, Lee was both a product of his time and a harbinger of a more connected future.Nearly half a century after his tragic death, Bruce Lee remains an inspiring symbol of innovation and determination, with an enduring legacy as the first Asian American global superstar.

A trained killer without a drop of human compassion shows up early in Laurie Buchanan's second Sean McPherson thriller (Iconoclast (Spark Press 2022)). She has no problem murdering a woman and taking her place at a writer's retreat in beautiful Washington State. But she's controlled by a Seattle-based crime family that is spreading its tentacles across the Bellingham Bay, a perfect location for trafficking drugs and people across the Pacific Ocean. The book opens with the murder of a priest, who turns out to be the brother of the retreat's proprietor, and a gourmet cook. The lovely Pine and Quill offers several cabins, one for each writer, and enticing-sounding gourmet meals. The iconoclast is there to kill someone who might know too much, and it takes some time before Sean McPherson, a former cop, is pulled in. Can he save his fiancé and protect the other guests? Laurie Buchanan, who earned a PhD in Holistic Health with a emphasis in energy medicine from National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, writes the Sean McPherson novels— fast-paced thrillers set in the Pacific Northwest that feature a trifecta of malice and the pursuit and cost of justice.

Hello Interactors,EVs made headlines this week as members of the U.S. Congress continue to chase their tail in search of remnants of the Green New Deal. I talked about cobalt last week as a key ingredient for lithium-ion batteries, but a new bill offered by congress this week has implications for another, more obvious, mineral — lithium. The biggest source is in an environmentally sensitive area of Bolivia, and U.S.-Bolivian relations are equally sensitive.As interactors, you’re special individuals self-selected to be a part of an evolutionary journey. You’re also members of an attentive community so I welcome your participation.Please leave your comments below or email me directly.Now let’s go…THE PARADOX OF NATURAL STOCKSToday is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. These words appeared on a ceramic plaque in the shape of a tea kettle that hung in the kitchen of my grandma’s house. Why do we worry about tomorrow? Is it because we don’t know what it brings? No way to control it? We wake up every day in a past tomorrow living in a future yesterday. Today’s tomorrows are becoming increasingly worrisome on a warming planet that needed help yesterday.Democrats in Washington DC worried about tomorrow focused their action, in part, on Electric Vehicles (EV) this week. As part of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, they hope to expand EV tax credits and invent $10 billion in investment tax credits to build clean-technology manufacturing facilities.There’s a provision on the EV tax credit regarding the sourcing and processing of the minerals needed to make the lithium-ion batteries found in EVs. It says, “with respect to the battery from which the electric motor of such vehicle draws electricity,” a certain percentage of the “critical minerals contained in such battery” must be ‘‘(i) extracted or processed in any country with which the United States has a free trade agreement in effect, or (ii) recycled in North America.”This might explain why Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen called for more ‘friend-shoring’ while in Seoul South Korea earlier this week. That’s a term she uses to woo countries into trade practices agreeable to the U.S. She chose South Korea because we need their lithium-ion battery production. In April, LG announced plans for a $1.4 billion battery plant in Queen Creek, Arizona. They are the number two battery producer in the world behind China.The provision isn’t just about the source of the battery, but the source of the materials in the battery. Their key ingredient – lithium – will most likely come from one or more of three countries in Latin America. They’ll need to be ‘Friend-shored’ if America wants to dominate the EV market. The country with the largest and most accessible source, Bolivia, has no shore and recently have not been friendly with the United States.The world’s largest lithium reserves sit in the Atacama Desert which forms a triangulated region known as the “Lithium Triangle”. It sits within the geopolitical boundaries of Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile which were drawn in the 19th century. Bolivia, now home to the largest population of Indigenous people, became land locked when Chile crushed them in the War of the Pacific from 1879-1884. They took away land that gained Bolivia access to the Pacific Ocean. Bolivia lost even more land in the Gran Chaco region to Paraguay after the Chaco War from 1932–35Much of the international law that governs these disputes were written to advantage American and European colonist expansion. They were part of a neoliberal agenda by the global North to ensure the rights of these borders and those legally living within them, but also to exploit their natural and human resources. Latin American countries rich with natural resources were eager to participate in the global economy. Many in these Latin American countries viewed their natural resources as an economic blessing – a way to secure and grow their new nation’s economic prosperity amidst a burgeoning global economy. But for most, it was a curse that invited environmental degradation and poverty at the hands of outsiders. This paradox was observed as early as 1711 in a British publication, The Spectator, "It is generally observed, that in countries of the greatest plenty there is the poorest living." In 1995 economist Richard Auty saw this geographical pattern occurring in East Asia, Africa, and Latin America and gave it a name: ‘Resource Curse’.Auty observes the curse is often explained away by neoliberals as a factor of work ethic; they are simply too lazy to keep up with ‘advanced’ economies or lack the necessary resources. But he says politics are blamed as well. The U.S. has spent centuries of time, energy, and money backing Latin American neoliberal regimes and schemes toward their globalist agenda. Both overtly and covertly and always rhetorically. Authoritatively from the right, ‘Peace through Strength’, or diplomatically from the left, ‘Friend-shoring.’The United States has long envisioned an American continent that mimics the United States. University of Iowa international law professor, Christopher Rossi, writes, “Latin Americanism emerged from a deeply circumspect nineteenth century regard for hegemonic foreign policy intentions of the United States, which had weaponized the defensive construct of its Monroe Doctrine (1823) with the annexation of Texas (1845), the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), and an assortment of turn of-the-century interventions and power plays in the Caribbean and Central America over future control of the Panama Canal.”One of the most recent power plays came with the suspected ousting of one of only two elected Indigenous leaders in the history of colonized America, in a country rich with lithium, Bolivia’s 65th president, Evo Morales.REAGAN BIRTHS A POLITICIANEvo Morales was born in western Bolivia in a small Indigenous Aymara village to farmers in 1959. As a young boy he helped his dad grow coca and trade it in the markets of Cochabamba, Bolivia’s third largest city. It took two weeks by foot to get there. Coca is an Aymaran word, “Khoka” – ‘the tree’. It is most associated with cocaine, but the leaf has been central to Andean culture for thousands of years. It’s one of the oldest cultivated plants in South America and has been used as currency, tea, and was even the original ingredient in Coca-Cola. (Kola is a caffeinated African nut) Coca is also commonly chewed by Andeans. Saliva breaks down the leaf to release alkaloids; none of which produce the euphoric effects of processed coca for cocaine but are believed to have health benefits.Growing up, Evo Morales learned Spanish and attended the Agrarian Humanistic Technical Institute of Orinoca (ITAHO), but never finished. After his military service, he became a coca grower. As cocaine gained popularity in America in the 70s, the price of coca increased and farming coca became popular. Morales soon joined a farmers union protecting Indigenous rights to farm coca for traditional Andean purposes in the face of competition among many, and hostilities toward some, coca growers.In 1980 a far-right, anti-union, military dictator, Luis García Meza, became displeased with Bolivia’s turn toward a more pro-civilian communitarian government. He also sensed the decline of the Carter administration in the U.S. and gambled on the country swinging to the right in line with his beliefs. So, as Reagan entered the White House Meza took military control of Bolivia. A year later soldiers kidnapped a coca farmer accusing him of trafficking cocaine, beat him up, and burned him to death. This event is what spurred the young Evo Morales into politics.Reagan distanced himself from Meza, who was eventually pressured to resign. His replacement was a leftist moderate, Hernán Siles Zuazo, who had served previously as president in the 1950s. Amid widespread poverty he came to the U.S. for aid. They agreed under the condition Bolivia would adopt their neoliberal economic plan. That plan involved the privatization of Bolivia’s natural resources – including the coca plant.With Siles back in office in the 1980s, Reagan had a neoliberal ally and a partner in his infamous War on Drugs. Reagan pressured Siles to use military force to suppress coca growers. The U.S. sent troops to help burn coca fields. There were reports of beatings should owners resist. Farmers were offered $2500 an acre to voluntarily eradicate their crops. Morales was one of them and he refused. In that moment, the coca plant became a symbol of Bolivian natural resources, and his Indigenous Andean ancestral heritage, and he didn’t like U.S. imperialists threatening to control it. Activists protested chanting, “Long live coca! Death to the Yankees!"Evo Morales organized similar protests throughout the 1980s and 90s and rose through the ranks of various union groups. He took leadership of MAS (Movement for Socialism) – “an indigenous-based political party that calls for the nationalization of industry, legalization of the coca leaf ... and fairer distribution of national resources." By the 2002 elections MAS became Bolivia’s second largest party gaining 20% of the popular vote.In 2003, more protest erupted after a U.S. company offered to buy a nationalized natural gas pipeline for below market value. Activists took to the street resulting in 80 people dead. Morales called for President Sánchez de Lozada to resign. Lozada fled to Miami, Florida and was replaced by Carlos Mesa who had ties to U.S. In 2004 he resigned fearing a civil war between the upper-class White Bolivian elites concentrated in major cities and the rural working and middle class. In 2005, 85% of Bolivians turned out to vote. Evo Morales earned 54% of the total. This was the first victory by absolute majority in Bolivia in 40 years and the highest national vote percentage of any presidential candidate in Latin American history.President Morales maintained focus on state sovereignty over natural resources. His administration nationalized Bolivian oil and natural gas, telecommunications, electricity, and restructured a state-owned mining company. Thanks to high international commodity prices, for the first time since its borders had been ratified, Bolivia experienced a continuous economic public-sector surplus between 2006-2013.Because of his extractive agenda, Morales is sometimes regarded as capitalist; but a communitarian one. Instead of the profits going to privately held companies and select shareholders, they fund social programs. Morales is also regarded as an environmentalist and a voice for climate justice. His philosophy links to Andean Indigenous heritage and a widely held Amerindian belief in natural rights called “Buen Vivir” or “Living Well”. He ensconced many of these philosophies into the Bolivian constitution. His actions made Bolivia a world leader in encoding Indigenous and natural rights into law.His ‘Living Well’ Bolivian laws, were simply following international law. The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth is part of the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth. It was this ratification that declared April 22 as International Earth Day. The Declaration is intended to spur every country in the world to enact laws and practices that recognize “Mother Earth is the source of life, nourishment and learning and provides everything we need to live well.” (my italics) There is a difference between ‘living well’ and ‘living better’. The current dominant economic philosophy encourages competition between individuals to live better then another, but Morales, and the UN are asking, what if we all could live well?BATTERY POWERED COUPThe aim to for all to live well is why Morales included laws like: “The State and any individual or collective person must respect, protect, and guarantee the rights of Mother Earth for the well-being of current and future generations” There are 58 articles intended to help countries regulate ‘Living Well’, including: “non-commercialization of the environmental functions of Mother Earth; integrality; precautionary action; guarantee to restore Mother Earth; guarantee to regenerate Mother Earth; historical responsibility; priority of prevention; plural participation; water for life; solidarity among human beings; harmonious relation; social justice; climate justice; plural economy; complementarity and equilibrium; and dialogue of traditional knowledges and science.”It also includes a ‘Right to Development’ that Morales was following with his extractive economic policy.“the right to development [as] an inalienable human right by virtue of which every human person and all peoples are entitled to participate in, contribute to, and enjoy economic, social, cultural and political development, in which all human rights and fundamental freedoms can be fully realized.”The Organization of American States (OAS), an organization largely funded by the U.S. government and headquartered in Washington D.C., helped draft these declarations which Morales inserted into the Bolivian constitution. It’s derived from the 2007 United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples that“provides a shared framework for improving temporary situations where two opposed interests collide, that is, the rights of indigenous peoples and State politics.”There are 148 countries who ratified this declaration in 2016, but the United States, Canada, Colombia, and Brazil are not among them. They have issues with ideas of “free determination, consultation, and consent, collective rights, and natural resources, land, and territories.” Which is why the United States may have had issues with Morales.Seeing Bolivia’s lithium stores were the next natural resource to be exploited by the United States, Morales turned his attention to developing lithium according to his ‘Living Well’ constitutional articles. But some Indigenous separatists, and Indigenous people most impacted by lithium extraction, became critical of Evo Morales and his eagerness to capitalize on this economic opportunity.The first attempts at extraction were privatized, but seeking to avoid the ‘resource curse’, Morales formed the state-owned YLB, Yacimientos de Litio Bolivianos, for the sole purpose of lithium development. However, seeing Venezuela’s failure to effectively drill oil without outside investment or expertise, he decided to ease his stance on sole state-ownership and sought public-private partnerships. In 2014 and 2017 he invited a French and a Chinese company to build battery plants. In 2018, he signed on a German company, ACI Systems. And in 2019, the Chinese Xinjiang TBEA Group became a strategic partner to explore new extraction opportunities.In October of that same year, 2019, came the national elections and with it another Morales victory. But he was accused of election fraud. (It’s still disputed, but findings fall along political, ethnic, and cultural lines) Around election time protests erupted in the city where the German plant was built. Locals claimed to unhappy with the ACI deal. In November, Morales cancelled it. A week later the military ousted Morales in what is widely believed to be a far-right coup not unlike the one that spurred Morales to political action in the 80s. Morales escaped in exile to Mexico and then Argentina. He also claims his life had been threatened by U.S. CIA operatives.Predictably, the interim government was led by an opposition senator named Jeanine Áñez. The Catholic pink bible carrying former news anchor not only put lithium projects on hold, but criminal liability for police brutality against protesters enraged by the coup. She also cut off ties to Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba and became cozy with the United States. A year later, October 2020, elections were held again and Morales’s former Minister of Economy, MAS candidate Luis Arce, won in a landslide.Arce is viewed as a pragmatist but also an adherent the principles Morales instilled in the constitution. Including upholding his 2006 implementation of the Productive Community Social Economic Model which distributes economic surpluses to all Bolivian people so they may ‘live well’.Arce said in a recent interview, “Parallel to the economic growth achieved, we managed to reduce moderate poverty from 60.6 percent in 2005 to 37.2 percent in 2019; extreme poverty from 38.2 percent to 12.9 percent and inequality," And just this week Bolivia micro-mobility startup, Quantum, said they hope Arce’s plans to build Bolivian batteries plays out soon, they want to put them in their tiny electric urban micro-cars and motorcycles. They operate out of Cochabamba where Morales traded coca for corn with his dad in public markets decades ago. Bolivian elections come in just three years but even Arce’s allies don’t believe their facilities can bring Bolivian batteries to market before 2030.In the meantime, outside investors continue to court Bolivia, including the United States. But the U.S. hasn’t had an ambassador in Bolivia since Morales kicked Rob Goldberg out in 2008 on counts of espionage. And I’m sure American companies won’t want to legally adhere to the ‘Living Well’ laws of the Bolivian constitution; just as the American government doesn’t want to ratify the UN’s versions into international law. It may be hard for the U.S. to ‘Friend-shore’ Bolivia. Especially when their shore was taken by Chile. Meanwhile environmentalists worry the state’s ambition to curb poverty through extractive mining will continue to harm the environment.Massive amounts of water are needed to lure lithium from their salty beds. Mining operations can use as much water in one day that a single family would use in twenty-two years. Alpine runoff is the only source of water in the ‘Lithium Triangle’ and La Niña can bring extended periods of drought. Furthermore, this area is home to three of the world’s six species of flamingos. Both plants and animals in this rich avifauna area are sensitive to ecological extremes risking further depletion of biodiversity.Little attention is given to the environmental impacts of lithium mining. The largest number of scholarly research on the subject overwhelming comes from the three countries who seek to exploit and consume it the most for the worldwide lithium-ion battery market: The United States, China, and Germany.But if Arce keeps to the laws of his own constitution, as ensconced by his friend and colleague Evo Morales, he must balance “precautionary action”, “guarantees to restore Mother Earth”, “guarantees to regenerate Mother Earth”, and respect “water for life” with “economic, social, cultural and political development” so that “all human rights and fundamental freedoms can be fully realized.” There’s a mind twisting saying associated with ‘Living Well’ that reminds me of that plaque in my grandma’s kitchen. It says, “that which already is, is that which will be, without yet being what it already is.” Today, that which already is, is the tomorrow, that which will be, that you worried about yesterday, yet being what it already is. We may worry what tomorrow brings on the horizon of life, but this much is for sure: it depends on the recognition, and lawful ratification, of Mother Earth as the source of life, nourishment, and learning because it provides everything we need to live well.Podcast Music:1.

In the second part of Voyages' journey along the California Current, we explore the Golden State's North Coast, where the line between land and sea is a very blurry one. You can see that blurriness amidst the gargantuan forests of the Redwood Coast, which wouldn't exist if not for ties for the cold Pacific Ocean. You can see it even more clearly in the intertidal zone, where sea becomes land twice a day, and there are few finer places to experience this transition zone than the dramatic Mendocino and Sonoma County shores.

DATELINE: Pearl Harbor, Hawaii -- Nobody likes typhoons or tropical storms in the western Pacific, least of all the U.S. Navy's fifth and seventh fleets. That's where the Joint Typhoon Warning Center comes in. Part of the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, it's one of the activities THE FEDERAL DRIVE is exploring in this week's series on how the Navy keeps on top of the weather. Federal Drive host Tom Temin spoke with Commander Angela Francis, the commanding officer of the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, base at Pearl Harbor.
This week we discuss the little-known phenomenon of Prairie Madness. Immigrants who settled in the Great Plains experienced episodes of depression and violence. The cause is commonly attributed to the isolation between the settlements but could it also be the sound of silence? Then we get into the burning ring of fire, not the Johnny Cash song, but the 25,000-mile ring of active volcanoes that surround the Pacific Ocean. 75% of the world's volcanoes and 90% of the world's earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. Learn about how volcanoes are formed and what you can do to keep yourself safe.
In the Tom Hanks film “Castaway,” the main character, “Chuck,” finds himself in the ultimate terrifying situation. Chuck's plane goes down in the ocean, and he finds himself stranded on a very deserted island. Years pass. Chuck's family and friends long ago gave up on him, and why not? No one could have known he was sitting on a remote pile of sand in the Pacific Ocean. He learns to survive, but then reflects on the future. What happens if he gets sick? What happens if he's injured? Staying put isn't an option. **SPOILER ALERT** Next thing you know, he's pushing away from the island on a homemade raft. This risky adventure eventually puts him right in the path of a ship. When He went to be with His Father in heaven, Jesus left his disciples with a simple but big adventure idea: Go tell people about me. It won't be safe, and you might even be in danger, but life depends on it. Mark 16:15 says, “He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'” Jesus called us to ride the ultimate wave. Let's pray. Lord, sometimes life intimidates us. But we have you as our lifeboat, and we thank you for not letting us drift away. In Jesus' name. Amen.
During this episode, we break down events leading to Japan's decision to attack Pearl Harbor, the planning that went into the attack, Japan's voyage across the Pacific Ocean, and of course, Marine activity during the attack.

The Most Unlikely Leader Roger Smith Interview with author of The Most Unlikely Leader Roger Smith #Author #TheMostUnlikelyLeader #RogerSmith Hi, and welcome to the show! On today's show I have the pleasure of welcoming author and former President and CEO of American Income Life Insurance and Liberty National, Mr. Roger Smith to talk about his book The Most Unlikely Leader, and we take a deep dive into his remarkable life that includes astronomical business success alongside family struggles and a life-threatening battle with addition. Roger, a proud father of five, currently lives in Florida with his wife Demi, and their two dogs. He received the Yitzhak Rabin Legacy Award, Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award, Healthcare for All Champion Award, Sol Stein Award, as well as numerous other awards and publications. During this call, Roger reveals a great deal about his journey as a top tier executive in one of America's premier organizations, through to the deeper, darker days struggling with various elements of his family and personal life. As we talk, Roger reveals why The Most Unlikely Leader, was not necessarily meant to be him. His story will take you on a journey that started when he was a teenager living on the streets of Santa Monica, and was addicted to drugs. Roger dropped out of high school, ran into trouble with the law, had his best friend shot right next to him while running away from a failed robbery attempt and, at one point, was so down and out and desperate for a fix in his early thirties that he walked into the Pacific Ocean expecting never to come back. In our darkest moments, often comes the realization that we're meant to achieve great things. And in Roger's case, he rose through the ranks of American Income relying on nothing but his wit, work ethic and his evolving understanding of what it takes to build teams and lead national organizations.

The lowest spot on Earth is the Challenger Deep — a part of the Mariana Trench that lies seven miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. But that's barely a wading pool compared to a possible ocean on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn. It could be 150 miles deep and hold far more water than Earth's oceans. Titan is enveloped in a cold, thick atmosphere that's topped with an organic “smog.” Lakes of liquid methane and ethane dot its surface. But there appears to be far more liquid beneath Titan's crust, which is made largely of frozen water. The Cassini spacecraft measured how much the surface of Titan flexes — the result of tides caused by the gravitational pull of Saturn. They found that the tides are more than 30 feet high — much higher than if Titan were made just of rock. So, instead, it must be made of roughly half rock and half water. Some of the water makes up the frozen crust, but much of it must still be liquid — warmed by the tides and the decay of radioactive elements inside Titan. The ocean, which may contain ammonia, may begin 30 miles down or farther, and could be 150 miles deep. If so, then it contains about four billion cubic miles of water — more than a dozen times more water than all of Earth's oceans combined. Look for Saturn rising well to the left of the Moon late this evening. The planet looks like a bright star. But you need a telescope to pick out watery little Titan.

Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/340 Presented By: Stonefly Nets, Trxstle, LakeLady Custom Rods, Bearvault Sponsors: https://wetflyswing.com/sponsors Today, we're going fly fishing in Costa Rica with Tom Enderlin. We discover a few different species in the jungle including a fruit-eating fish called, machaca - cousin of the piranha but vegan. We break down the species to target for each season and we touch on some of the wild habitats in the jungle such as jaguars, monkeys, and birds. Tom tells us how they ensure maximum benefit to the local communities there, equipping them to become excellent guides. Find out why Costa Rica is described as "one of the happiest countries in the world" and why they don't even need a military. What is it like to fish tarpon on freshwater with monkey audiences cheering you? Welcome to the jungle baby! Fly Fishing in Costa Rica Show Notes with Tom Enderlin 05:15 - Tom started out as an intern for a coffee company in Costa Rica and then got into tourism.

These are related to piranha but eat fruit and flowers. 14:55 - Tom loves fishing Tepemechín (Mountain Mullet). They're small but powerful. 16:30 - Marlin fishing in the Pacific Ocean is great from May until November 18:00 - There are 2 different types of Machaca in Costa Rica - one lives in the Caribbean and the other lives in the Pacific. In March and April, the wild cashew tree produces fruit that the Pacific Machaca feeds on. For the Caribbean machaca, they feed on Chilamate tree fruits. 20:00 - They have rainbow trout all year but the best time to fish them is the dry season 21:00 - The Costa Rica Grand Slam is a tarpon, trout, and billfish fishing 25:41 - Tom breaks down what a 1-week itinerary looks like 27:15 - Tom tells us how they make that perfect "kerplunk" - a funny term they use for putting the fly on the water that drives the machaca crazy. Click here to learn how to tie a Machaca fly pattern. 29:25 - For rods, they typically use a 3 wt or a tenkara for the small rainbows. For machaca, they use a 6 or 8 wt with a floating line. For saltwater, they use 10 or 11 wt for roosters. Billfish, sailfish, and marlin, they fish up to 16 wt. 30:20 - Jake Jordan was on the podcast at WFS 204 talking about the billfish 31:10 - They have a film about machaca with the F3T - scroll below to watch the video 33:00 - Another draw to the area is the bird-watching hub where there lives a bird called, the resplendent kestrel 33:30 - There are lots of jaguars in the jungle.

Let me know so we can set up a trip next year? See you there. Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/340
There's shame or guilt for practitioners in the healing space, requiring the collective mindset of "We don't do it for the money." Keri Nola, Psychotherapist, and Founder of the Abundance Activator for Healing Entrepreneurs cites that when we believe that we don't do it for the money or there's no money in healing, there's usually not because we create those self-fulfilling prophecies. "We shut ourselves down. I call it turning off our energetic Open for Business sign. Even if we're doing all of the typical marketing things, networking, social media presence, blogging, and getting listed on websites to help gain visibility, everything's still not working. Looking at our beliefs is the core of creating abundance." Tune in to this new power-packed episode of the Conscious Marketer podcast —Activating Abundance: Welcoming Aligned Cash and Clients with Keri Nola. Key points covered in this episode: [00:02:11] Therapy as a godwink for a little girl. Keri traces her love for helping people when she used to sit at the dining room table pretending she was a 911 operator. "I just got so much out of imagining being able to help people in times of crisis and need. And I never knew how exactly that would manifest. I thought I would be a teacher. And then, as I learned about the healing arts, therapy just made sense. And it was just like home for me. I went to school for it and came right out of school building a private practice." [00:04:29] Keri attributes her high client success rates to her passion for helping people who don't feel like they can be helped. People keep armored parts that keep them from feeling better. She shares experiences treating challenging teenagers who come into psychotherapy and are resistant to change. [00:07:13] Healing entrepreneurs struggle with scarcity consciousness. It is necessary to help practitioners in the space to cultivate a relationship that it is okay "doing it for the money." Increased belief and confidence are essential to welcoming aligned cash, clients, and opportunities to serve abundantly. [00:10:37] To heal money wounds, Keri recommends methods like tapping, energetic clearing, or unwinding ancestral patterns. We come from generations upon generations of ideas, beliefs, and realities in our history stored in our cellular memory, not knowing why we're doing what we're doing. [00:12:24] Kylie covers how people feel afraid of telling their story or making money because of professional limitations imposed on them, and they get stuck in it like a straitjacket. If you can't share a story about yourself, how can you then share a story about your body of work? [00:20:33] If you are confused or nervous about pricing your next launch or program, Keri says to let your nervous system help you decide. If you're not ready to receive a $10,000 client package, you will push those clients away. You're going to get a lot of resistance. One of the ways you can know if your relationship with your body or your nervous system is shut down is if you get a lot of pushback on your pricing or if nobody responds. —————————————————————————— Keri Nola is an Intuitive Entrepreneur, a Former Psychotherapist, Best-Selling Author, Podcaster, and Founder of the Abundance Activator for Healing Entrepreneurs, a membership community oriented to align with your Divine desires.

Find out what the "Powers That Be" Don't want you to know regarding the truly hidden - occult - history of the United States. No one would likely dispute the fact that times are stranger in America than ever before, and indications are that things are getting weirder with each passing day.But a look at our hidden – SECRET – history alerts us to the startling fact that our country has been steeped in “high strangeness” since its founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and, provocatively, even before. It is nevertheless apparent that our proud nation owes a great “debt of ingratitude” to the mysterious, the macabre, the downright bizarre and the unseen realm of the occult.Did the ancient Lemurians, a Pacific Ocean race similar to the fabled Atlanteans to the east, erect the mysterious walls found in the eastern part of the San Francisco Bay area? Writer Olav Phillips explores the enigma first hand.Sean Casteel provides an overview of historical incidents of cannibalism, stories that go back as far as “The Starving Time” of the Jamestown colony in 1609, and Wm. Michael Mott offers up some of the UFO and creature sightings he has collected from the state of Mississippi.Publisher/writer Timothy Green Beckley and his friend Circe returned to Sleepy Hollow, New York – of “Headless Horseman” fame – and discovered that paranormal activity is still rampant there, while author Tim Swartz would like suitable explanations for all the supernatural mysteries of his native Indiana.In a Bonus Section: “The Spiritual Destinyof America” - The future of America as seen through the eyes of prophecy and the occult is revealed. You can feel the chills already, eh? Read “America's Strange and Supernatural History” and get ready to kick those chills up a notch or two.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/houseofmysteryradio.

The mystery surrounding Natalie Wood's death continues to captivate 40 years after the fact. The answer to the question, why was Natalie Wood in the Pacific Ocean on a late, cold drizzly night, has never been sufficiently answered. Theories abound though, and Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly discuss these theories while performing possibly the best Christopher Walken impression in history.

This week we're taking it back to our very first episode, featuring a book that's drowning in controversy. As a kid, did you ever fantasize about running away from home? Ever dream about escaping to a place where no one could tell you what to do? Imagine for a moment that your fantasy came true but in reverse. Your parents ran away from home, leaving you to your own devices before you could even count to 30 — before you literally knew what number came after 29. It's an age where you reasonably expect no one will ever leave you without food, guidance, and protection, and yet there you are, without the natural affection afforded to even the feral animals around your feet. Sobering, no? Owens writes the world of Kay, our protagonist, with striking vividness. Through economical prose and an unpretentious vocabulary, she brings to life the colors and sounds experienced by a six-year-old girl, abandoned by her own in the marsh of North Carolina in the 1950s. While reading this book, the air around you will smell of buzzing micro-ecosystems and land wet with forgotten waters from the Pacific Ocean. More than anything, you'll feel the numbing pain of Kay's loneliness as if it's your own. Before we dive into Where the Crawdads Sing, we'll get real about loneliness and depression: What battles have we had with both, and how does one cope? Welcome to the first episode of Lit Society.
