Exactly forty years ago, in a groundbreaking and spectacular piece of marine conservation that captured the imagination of the world, the Mary Rose was raised from the seabed. The warship, commissioned by Henry VIII in 1511, sank on 19 July 1545 during an encounter between French and English fleets in the Solent, between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. Perhaps up to 500 men were on board, only 34 survived.In the first of three specials marking the 40th anniversary of the raising of the Mary Rose, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb travels to Portsmouth to find out why the Mary Rose sank. She's joined by Dr. Dominic Fontana, Retired Senior Lecturer in Geography formerly at the University of Portsmouth, and Dr. Alexandra Hildred, Head of Research and Curator of Ordnance and Human Remains at the Mary Rose Trust.The Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.

Mike Yardley: UK Royal residences you can actually sleep in

Saturday Morning with Jack Tame

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 24, 2022 8:34


Mike Yardley is in the UK and share his tips on a Royal residence open to the public to slumber in. The world's eyes have been fixed on Britain as we farewelled Queen Elizabeth II. The British Monarchy looks destined to remain an enormous catalyst for UK-bound tourism and Visit Britain is projecting a surge in royal-inspired travel. Dripping with royal trappings and a wealth of history, there's a surprising amount of regal accommodations experiences to be found in the United Kingdom. Best of all, they don't have to break the bank. Plenty of hotels pledge to treat you like royalty with their five-star frills. But the fact remains that not even the fanciest of facials or triple digit cotton thread count can match the prospect of bedding down in a real-deal royal residence, like the grand grounds of Balmoral, where Queen Elizabeth II saw out her final days. So not why just go stay there instead? Whether you're a royalist or a history hound, here's a handful of royal residences that any commoner can book a stay in. It's kind of like the royal version of Bookabach. High up in Sutherland, Scotland, the most northerly castle on the British mainland is the 16th-century Castle of Mey. This old pile's blood-stained history was given a new lease on life when the Queen Mother bought the castle after the death of her husband, King George VI. After a tip to toe restoration to the building and its expansive 12-hectare of grounds, which took her fifty years to complete, she spent several weeks here every August and October until her death. The castle became the first royal residence opened up to paying guests, who can now stay at the Captain's House cottage, which was the late Queen Mother's favourite spot for an indoor picnic. As you do. It can sleep six people and includes a 20-foot conservatory which overlooks an enclosed garden and offers sweeping sea views. In 2019, the then Prince Charles opened the Granary Lodge for guests, as well. www.castleofmey.org.uk Henry VIII may well have been the Hugh Hefner of the Tudor period, with Hampton Court Palace being the 16th century equivalent of the Playboy Mansion. A pleasure palace that set the stage for seriously debauched parties. Situated on the banks of the Thames just south-west of London, the infamous king's pad which also boasts pleasure gardens, a tennis court and even a bowling alley, is available for stays. Get your own taste of royal grandeur by renting the on-site 18th century Georgian House, which comes complete with private walled garden and is on the alley leading to Henry VIII's Real Tennis Court. The Georgian House sleeps up to eight and will cost you around NZ$500 a night. www.landmarktrust.org.uk Hampton Court Just off the mainland, the Isle of Wight makes for a magnificent island escape. It's also home to Osbourne House which was beloved by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a family holiday home. The formal entrance to Osborne House, Sovereign's Gate, has welcomed an A to Z of European aristocracy, from Napoleon and Tsar Nicholas II. It was also where Victoria made her final departure in 1901, passing away in her favourite seaside retreat. You can tour the bedroom where she died. Nowadays, the grand entrance has been turned into one of two holiday cottages, housed within this landmark building. www.english-heritage.org.uk Osbourne House Synonymous with Christmas royal-style, Sandringham in Norfolk was purchased by Queen Victoria as a marital home for her son, Edward VII. Sandringham remains a firm favourite with the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II spent her first Christmas in the property as an eight-month-old, and since then the entire Windsor tribe converge on their Norfolk bolthole every December. But when the Monarch isn't in residence, cottages that house the travelling staff on the 8000-hectare estate, are available to let. So if that invitation to Christmas lunch never seems to arrive in the mail, this is the next best thing. What was formerly the head gardener's house is available to rent year-round. Called the Garden House, it overlooks the ornamental garden that adjoins the main building. www.norfolkhideaways.co.uk Sandringham Estate The grandest of them all? Balmoral Castle. The royal family's hideaway in the Scottish Highlands was one of the Queen's favourite residences. Flanked by more than 20,000 hectares of forests, lochs and glens; it is the summer holiday haven for the Royal Family. Like the cottages in Sandringham, they serve as staff quarters when the Monarch comes to stay. Just prior to her death, The Queen decided to allow all eight cottages to be made available to the public for holiday bookings, after being shut for so long during the pandemic. Colt Cottages are situated in close proximity to the Castle, near the Estates Office and Stables. Bookings run on a Saturday to Saturday basis and can sleep up to five people. It's available for let between January 7 and March 31, while Rhebreck Cottage is available year-round, aside from when the Royal Family is in residence. The weekly tariff starts from NZ$1000 a week. www.balmoralcastle.com Balmoral Castle Finally, when it comes to being "neighbours'' with The Firm, London's The Rubens at the Palace enjoys that unique distinction. Overlooking the rear of Buckingham Palace, the century-old hotel has long been the glorified accommodation wing for palace guests. From the windows you can watch the guardsmen in the Royal Mews, see the rollers being cleaned and the Monarch's horses in their stables. The aptly named Palace Lounge stages one of London's most beloved afternoon teas, brimming with royalty-associated fare. From coronation chicken sandwiches (purposefully conceived for the coronation lunch of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, to the Queen's beloved "jam pennies" and bite-sized portions of William and Harry's favourite chocolate sweet treat – every bite comes with a story.

Join the Spoookstak! So, you know that Embrace interview I uploaded the other day? The one I'd done a month or so back, in the stifling heat of a vicious, ice cap melting UK summer? The one I'd left the window at Spoook Towers open during – not something I normally do, but I was genuinely fearful that I would melt and become more puddle than man if I didn't.  Well, this episode – with Badly Drawn Boy, aka Damon Gough - should come with the same proviso. It's not the best audio. It is, however, an excellent conversation. Total transparency. Damon is co-managed by my wife. He's kind of family, really. But I've loved his music as long as I remember. I think he's a truly unique songwriter, but if I've got one criticism of his work, it's that it's slowed down to such a crawl, that 2020's ninth album, Banana Skin Shoes, was his first set of new songs in almost a decade. Not long before this episode was recorded, I went to see him play at the Rhythmtree Festival on the Isle of Wight. It was a remarkable performance, a reminder of what a special talent he is and why I just can't wait another ten years for an album. I thought then, that it might be nice to have a chat for this episode of the podcast, and see how he's getting on with that follow up record. Because we all need a little nudge from time to time…

Andy Lopata talks to a remarkable woman in this week's Connected Leadership Podcast. Anna Wardley is an endurance swimmer, charity fund raiser and all round adventurer. She was voted 'Inspirational Woman of the Year' in 2013 and has a global list of swims she has completed including the English Channel and round the Isle of Wight. Anna stresses the importance of connections and the support of the people you have around you. A relatively late starter, her first cross channel attempt was in her thirties. Her success depends on meticulous planning, detailed research and a huge trusted team supporting her.  She has always found the right people by using her international network and building a team using a combination of people, engaging with them, building confidence and trust. All which relate well to success in business. Anna describes the problem of impaired cognitive function for the long distance swimmer, giving great responsibility and decision making to the team for her wellbeing. Success is dependent on everyone in the team being clear what their role is. Anna calls on her inner strength to channel negative attitudes and uses them for motivation. In fascinating detail she explains how she eats from feeding nets and her preferred food when on a long swim.

Now the radio propagation report, compiled by G0KYA, G3YLA, and G4BAO on Friday 16th September 2022. We had an expected boost to the solar flux index last week, thanks to a returning sunspot group. This, when added to sunspot region 3098, pushed the SFI to 152 on the 11th. The returning group, which has now been updated to active region 3102, isn't quite the threat it was on its last visit, but may still be capable of M-class solar flares. The good news is that an SFI of up to 150+, coupled with better Autumnal propagation, has seen the HF bands come alive at times. Jeff, ZL7/K5WE on Chatham Island has been workable on 40m CW and FT8. He is due to be on air until the 21st of September. Brian, 9J2BO in Zambia, a regular in the Commonwealth Contest, has also been worked on 10 metres CW. It is worth noting that this is a good month for north-south paths, such as the UK to South Africa, and the UK to South America. The beginning of last week was better than the second half, which suffered from an elevated Kp index due to an enhanced solar wind. Also, a high-speed stream from a high-latitude coronal hole on the Sun was forecast to batter the Earth from the 16th onwards. The critical frequency over the UK has fluctuated from less than 5MHz at sunrise to more than 7MHz around lunchtime and later. If you are looking for good inter-G conditions you are better off waiting until the afternoon. Next week, NOAA predicts that the SFI will decline into the 120s. This weekend may also be unsettled on the geomagnetic front as well. Expect the Kp index to rise to four or five, with a characteristic drop in the MUF. Hopefully, conditions will improve after the weekend with the Kp index forecast to drop to around two. As always, things can change very quickly, thanks to solar flares and CMEs, so keep an eye on solarham.com and propquest.co.uk And now the VHF and up propagation news. There should be some useful Tropo about in the coming week, initially over western Britain at first, but gradually extending across most areas as high pressure moves in across the British Isles. The eastern side of the country will start this weekend in a more showery northerly flow down the east coast, so Tropo is unlikely here until we are into next week. Once established it should bring enhanced conditions to most areas and into the near continent, but limited options across the North Sea where the cool showery weather retains control and limits the potential for QSOs to the east. The other modes to have in mind are meteor scatter, particularly in the early mornings. The Sextantids meteor shower is underway but doesn't reach its peak until the 27th. In the disturbed sequence of solar conditions, an aurora is always a possibility so keep an eye on the Kp index; anything above five should be worth checking out. The Moon is at maximum positive declination at the moment, so is visible for long periods. Apogee is the point at which the Moon is furthest from Earth. It takes place on Monday when path losses are at their highest for the month. 144MHz sky noise starts the week at a moderate 500 Kelvin but quickly falls low for the rest of the week. And that's all from the propagation team this week.

John 14:1-3   “Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” Jesus spoke these words of comfort to his disciples just before his Crucifixion. The disciples seem to have had very little idea of what was going on and certainly hadn't understood that Jesus was going to leave them so soon. But Jesus knew that they would need reassurance as they passed through turbulent and challenging days. In short, he said there is nothing to worry about because God had made perfect plans for the future.  As we mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth it is wonderful that we are able to do so with the sure knowledge that she knew that her life was secure in God's hands. She was happy to be extremely public and clear about her personal devotion to Christ, and her desire to live and work for him. She knew where she was going and that there was nothing to worry about. It reminds me of family holidays. When I was a little boy we would always go on holiday for two weeks and mostly to the Isle of Wight. On many occasions we stayed in a little cottage beside Compton Bay which looked across Freshwater Bay. It was wonderful in every way. We would spend time on the beach and collecting wild flowers and as a little boy I hadn't a single clue about the arrangements that had to be made to get us there, or rent the cottage. But what is more I didn't need to have a clue about the arrangements because my father had done it all. I could trust him – and I did. Whenever we face death we are all bound to look to the future and wonder what's going to happen to us. I believe that we need only to look to our heavenly father and know that he can be trusted. He's made the arrangements and all we need to do is to put our lives in his hands. Prayer: Loving God, as we thank you for Queen Elizabeth we praise you for her inspiring faith. We thank you that she placed her life in your hands and that she was confident about the future that you had prepared for her. We pray for King Charles and the Royal Family, and for our whole nation that at this time of sadness we will place our lives afresh in your loving hands. Amen

We have a lot of fun plans for the future so stay tuned.  Become A Subscriber. The next morning, the hobbits breakfast alone and are seen off by Tom and Goldberry. They make their way across the countryside as the sun rises in the sky and the temperature warms. Coming to a tall stone pillar, they let their ponies stray about on the grass as they sit in the cool shade of the stone and have lunch. The next thing they know, they wake "from a sleep they had never meant to take." The air is heavy and the ponies distressed, and they swiftly pack up and leave, but the mist only becomes thicker. Frodo, suddenly alone, becomes disoriented, wanders in the dark, and finally hears a cold voice saying, "I am waiting for you!" A dark figure takes him in a cold grip, and he falls unconscious. When he wakes, he realizes he has been captured and entombed by a Barrow-wight. As he gathers his courage, he sees his friends lying nearby, arrayed with treasures and dressed in white. A long sword has been laid across their three necks. Frodo hears an incantation, and sees a creeping hand going toward Sam. Grabbing a sword, Frodo hacks the hand from its arm, and calls out for Tom Bombadil. After a short silence, Frodo hears Tom's voice singing as he approaches. Tom banishes the Wight, and helps Frodo carry the others to safety. Sam, Merry, and Pippin wake up. Tom finds the ponies which had wandered off, and has each hobbit claim a sword from the many treasures in the wight's barrow. He accompanies them to the borders of his lands, and advises them to make for The Prancing Pony, an inn in the village of Bree. The Fellowship of the Ring: Written by J.R.R.

This month I talk about Ghost shops, smuggler and monsters of the seas. We cover the following: If you wake at midnight, and hear a horse's feet, Don't go drawing back the blind, or looking in the street, Them that ask no questions isn't told a lie. Watch the wall my darling while the Gentlemen go by. Five and twenty ponies, Trotting through the dark –Brandy for the Parson, 'Baccy for the Clerk. Laces for a lady; letters for a spy, Watch the wall my darling while the Gentlemen go by! - A Smuggler's Song, Rudyard Kipling The Crows Curse: The old fishermen, sailors and smugglers of the Isle of Wight would never set sail if a crow had rested upon the bow of their boat. An ill wind is said to blow and those that venture forth ever return alive. Some say that when their bodies are recovered, their eyes are gone and their bodies are abound by scratches. The Mermaid's Lament Tails of Mermaids have been around for centuries, sometimes seen as sirens and the harbingers of death to those that sail the seas. The cunning fold and storytellers of the Island talk of a group that once lived by the needles. Cold of skin, blood of ice and a heart that was just as frozen. This tale reminds us that just because your heart is cold, doesn't mean it will always be that way. Smuggler's Betrayal They say there is honour amongst thieves, but that isn't always the case. Just up from Freshwater Bay there is a place called Afton – spring-head of the Western Yarr. It is a strange place, close to holiday makers but far enough to hide ghosts of not only those who were betrayed but those who did the betraying. The Saint Marie On the 20th April, 1313, the Saint Marie of Bayonne was wrecked off the cost of Chale. Lord Walter de Godeton sent his men down to collect all the goods and bring them back to his stores. He was later found guilt of plundering the wine (as it had not made it's way onto the shore and past the tide line when taken). But this tale is not about the lord, but the story of the phantoms that the wreck left behind. HMS Eurydice 24th March, 1878 the HMS Eurydice, a 26 gun, 921 ton frigate was on it's way back to Portsmouth when it hit extreme weather as it passed Ventnor.

How do winds start and why do they stop? asks Georgina from the Isle of Wight. What's more, listener Chris Elshaw is suprised we get strong winds at all: why doesn't air just move smoothly between areas of high and low pressure? Why do we get sudden gusts and violent storms? To tackle this breezy mystery, our curious duo don their anoraks and get windy with some weather experts. Dr Simon Clark, a science Youtuber and author of Firmament, convinces Adam that air flow is really about the physics of fluids, which can all be captured by some nifty maths. The idea of pressure turns out to be key, so Hannah makes her own barometer out of a jar, a balloon and some chopsticks, and explains why a bag of crisps will expand as you walk up a mountain. Professor Liz Bentley, Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Scoiety, reveals how the dynamics of a simple sea breeze – where air over land is heated more than air over water – illustrates the basic forces driving wind of all kinds. Then everyone gets involved to help Adam understand the tricky Coriolis effect and why the rotation of the Earth makes winds bend and storms spin. And Professor John Turner from the British Antarctic Survey explains why the distinctive features of the coldest continent make its coastline the windiest place on earth.

Bio:   Dr. Mikhail (Misha) Kogan, MD, ABIOM, RCST is a leader in the newly established field of Integrative Geriatrics.  He is the chief editor of the first definitive textbook of the field entitled “Integrative Geriatric Medicine”, published by Oxford University Press as part of Andrew Weil Integrative Medicine Library series and is frequent speaker at a variety of international conferences on the topics of Integrative Medicine, Geriatrics, healthy aging, as well as medical cannabis.   While Dr. Kogan's main medical cannabis expertise is in treating older patients and palliating symptoms at end of life he also treats a wide arrange of internal medicine problems from chronic GI problems to cancers where use of medical cannabis can be very beneficial.  In October 2021 Dr. Kogan, in collaboration with Dr. Joan Liebmann-Smith and Penguin Random Publishing House, published Medical Marijuana, Dr Kogan's Evidence-Based guide to the health benefits of cannabis and CBD. Dr. Kogan currently serves as medical director of the GW Center for Integrative Medicine, associate professor of medicine in the division of Geriatric and Palliative Care, and associate director of the Geriatrics and Integrative Medicine Fellowship Programs and director of Integrative Medicine Track program at the George Washington University (GWU) School of Medicine. Dr. Kogan is also the founder and the executive director of AIM Health Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area that provides integrative medicine services to low-income and terminally ill patients regardless of their ability to pay.  Questions:   Background   You have a diverse and impressive background, including integrative medicine, serving as an Associate Professor of Medicine at George Washington University, founder of a health nonprofit, and author. So cutting to the chase, what has gotten you to the place where you're one of the leading medical experts on cannabis? People have all sorts of associations with cannabis, mostly around its reputation as an illicit substance. Of course now it's being legalized for recreational use in many places around the world. Can you speak to its use for medicinal purposes? What's the medical backstory of cannabis? Maybe we can shift to a little rudimentary chemistry and biology to understand how cannabis works medically. Can you provide a layman's explanation of the human endocannabinoid system, how the cannabis plant interacts with it, and the difference between CBD and THC?   Dispelling Myths   There are a number of perceptions around cannabis and its use, and I wanted to see if we could validate or dispel some of them: Firstly, is cannabis a gateway to harder drugs? Is it safe to use? Are there side effects? What about the argument about how effective it truly is for medical use? Can you speak to the efficacy ranges for cannabinoids? Is there an evidence base to suggest cannabis is effective as a medical treatment?   Cannabis and MS   If we shift the focus to MS, can cannabis be helpful? How does cannabis impact MS spasticity? And what about using it for pain management. Does it alleviate pain that may be associated with MS? So are there any downsides to using cannabis as part of an MS treatment regimen? Perhaps adverse interactions with DMDs? Which cannabinoids should someone be taking to get an anti-inflammatory effect? How do you prescribe or recommend the use of cannabis in your own medical practice? Maybe put another way, how does someone determine if they're a good candidate to use cannabis medically? The organization behind this podcast, Overcoming MS, is a big advocate of healthy lifestyle choices. How does cannabis fit with healthy lifestyle choice in your view, Misha?   The Future of Cannabis   What is the current research activity around cannabis? Anything we should be aware of down the pike? What does the future hold for using cannabinoids for disease modification? And lastly, your book. You've just released a new book called Medical Marijuana. There's a link in the show notes for more information and where to buy it. Can you tell us a bit about the project, what it's about beyond what the title implies, what kind of impact you hope it will have? Thanks so much for being our guest on Living Well with MS, Dr. Misha Kogan. We are thrilled to learn about the amazing work you're doing to help people navigate the intricacies and benefits of medical marijuana. And I encourage everyone to learn more about you and your work by checking out the links and more in our show notes for this episode. Thanks again, Misha.   Links:   Kogan'sbio Kogan's new book,Medical Marijuana, selected as one of the summer 2022's best science reads Kogan is Medical Director of theGW Center for Integrative Medicine Kogan isAssociate Professor of Medicine, George Washington University Kogan is Founder and Executive Director,AIM Health Institute, a DC-based nonprofit delivering integrative services to underserved Kogan's personal website can be found here Kogan can be found on social media here: Facebook and YouTube   Coming up next:   Join us for the 35th installment of the Living Well with MS Coffee Break series, and get to meet Ann Coulson, who has been part of the OMS community even before such a thing existed and has been following the work of Professor George Jelinek dating back to its inception.

Poli, the film was produced by Poli, Jose Luis Martinez, and Owen Miller. MARCUS will be available in theaters and to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms through Gravitas Ventures on July 15, 2022.Marcus has a checkered past and an unstable present. Unexpected news brings a new opportunity. He leaves his life behind and sets off to find purpose and forgiveness. But Marcus will have to face the consequences of his past and overcome the greatest obstacle of all: Himself."We are ecstatic to be teaming up with Gravitas Ventures, a distributor that has been around for so long with such a large library of films. Their enthusiasm and eagerness to help push the film's important message gives us confidence that it will impact the right audience," said J.R. Poli."We at Gravitas are happy to present the redemptive story of Marcus. Owen Miller, Katana Malone, and Paul Wight deliver their characters' voices with a depth and authenticity we believe will resonate with audiences in theaters and on VOD this summer," said Bill Guentzler, Gravitas Ventures Senior Director of Acquisitions.PAUL WIGHT PROVIDES DETAILS BEHIND UPCOMING DRAMATIC ROLE IN MARCUS (FROM WRESTLING INC . COM)Paul Wight, formerly known as The Big Show while in WWE, will star in an upcoming movie "Marcus," written and directed by J.R. Poli. In an exclusive interview with Wrestling Inc., the former six-time World Champion discussed the film and his role, which is somewhat different than the more comedic parts he's played in previous movies."Originally, being part of this project was really just to help produce it and get this project going," Wight said. "Then there was an opportunity for a role in the picture, and I read the script and I was like, 'Yeah, I'd like to try Gus.' Because it is a very serious role, but Gus is a very important component to 'Marcus,' because Gus is actually one of the interactions that Marcus has with someone that's really trying to understand Marcus in his own way and trying to be supportive, but really doesn't understand how to know Marcus. Yes, it's a security guard role, but at the same time there's a lot more depth to the character and to the plot line of the story.""In acting, I want to try to push myself and push my boundaries and try to find things that are not what you would typically see me doing," Wight continued. "Sometimes it's hard to find those roles."Professional wrestling has seen multiple wrestlers transition from wrestling to Hollywood, with the most famous examples being The Rock, John Cena, and Batista. Wight is a somewhat understated name in that company - he's been in quite a few movies prior to this one, though typically in less central roles, from "The Waterboy" to "Fighting with my Family.""Marcus" also stars Owen Miller, Katana Malone, and Toddy Bruno.MARCUS is now available in theaters, VOD and digital
