Boat Building on the Cape
For me, building a boat is a lot like raising a child. You do the best job you can with the tools you have, and if you work diligently, everything works out. We jut out in the North Atlantic Ocean about 30 miles. So, boats played a big role in everything that people have done here on Cape Cod throughout history. So it's been important to us economically and it's also a source of pride. We, all of us, whether we're directly involved, as I am in the boat business or not, are on.
This unusual, even unique place with some unusual skills and craftsman, which is something you can't say in other parts of the country. One of the great things about boat building is that we're able to draw upon proven designs and proven techniques from our own boating experiences and incorporate that into the boats that we're building today. Our boats are special, they're unique, they're handcrafted. And they have a soul. They're built by our team, our crew with extreme care and a lot of love. The end result is, of course, to satisfy the client. Fortunately, for I think anybody who.
Is in the business of naval architecture there is a tremendous amount of satisfaction for one's self if the boat looks good, goes fast and gets the owner the places he always dreamed of going. My wife always kids me. To me, the best perfume would be something that smelled like sanded old varnish. There are smells, tarred marline, sanded varnish, the smell of fresh paint when you walk into the shop after something has been painted. The cedar dust in the air, the smell of mahogany, the black stain that comes on your hand from working with honduras mahogany.
The Giant Nest of the Australian BrushTurkey Wild Animals Planet Doc Full Documentaries
When Australia separated from Gondwana ages ago, its animal species were isolated from the rest of the world. Not quite all of them, though. Birds could still fly between the land masses. Giant birds called moas developed in these jungles where food was abundant and there were few predators. Some of them weighed as much as 550 pounds. This is a distant relative of those birds. This brushturkey, or pouched talegalla, is hard at work. A kangaroo is watching him, but the bird is too busy to notice. These Australian turkeys are anything but lazy.
The talegalla is polygamous and has to provide a place for his females to lay their eggs. He's building a very unusual nest. The turkey gathers together leaves and other plant materials to build his love nest That's a nest Yes it is, and some may weigh as much as four tons. That turkey's got himself quite a job to do It works like this The turkey gathers all the leaves he can. Then a fungus grows among them and they decompose. This process of decomposition produces heat, which turns the nest into a real incubator.
The incubator always has to be between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius. to take the temperature of the nest the turkey has a thermometer in his tongue or in his beak we dont really know. And here he is, deepsea diving in a sea of leaves all in the name of reproduction. A very original system. After a few gorounds, scientists have decided that evolutionarily speaking, these turkeys are very close relatives of the reptiles since only these birds and reptiles use this system of heated nests. It's a curious case, but whatever it takes to reproduce.
4,000YearOld Tablet Gives New Details on Noahs Ark
It was a vast boat that saved two of each animal and a handful of humans from a catastrophic flood. But forget all those images of a long vessel with a pointy bow the original Noah's Ark, new research suggests, was round. A recently deciphered 4,000yearold clay tablet from ancient Mesopotamia modernday Iraq reveals striking new details about the roots of the Old Testament tale of Noah. It tells a similar story, complete with detailed instructions for building a giant round vessel known as a coracle as well as the key instruction.
That animals should enter two by two. The tablet went on display at the British Museum on Friday, and soon engineers will follow the ancient instructions to see whether the vessel could actually have sailed. It's also the subject of a new book, The Ark Before Noah, by Irving Finkel, the museum's assistant keeper of the Middle East and the man who translated the tablet. Finkel got hold of it a few years ago, when a man brought in a damaged tablet his father had acquired in the Middle East after World War II. It was.
Light brown, about the size of a mobile phone and covered in the jagged cuneiform script of the ancient Mesopotamians. It turned out, Finkel said Friday, to be one of the most important human documents ever discovered. It was really a heartstopping moment the discovery that the boat was to be a round boat, said Finkel, who sports a long gray beard, a ponytail and boundless enthusiasm for his subject. That was a real surprise. And yet, Finkel said, a round boat makes sense. Coracles were widely used as river taxis in.
Ancient Iraq and are perfectly designed to bob along on raging floodwaters. It's a perfect thing, Finkel said. It never sinks, it's light to carry. Other experts said Finkel wasn't simply indulging in bookpromotion hype. David Owen, professor of ancient Near Eastern studies at Cornell University, said the British Museum curator had made an extraordinary discovery. Elizabeth Stone, an expert on the antiquities of ancient Mesopotamia at New York's Stony Brook University, said it made sense that ancient Mesopotamians would depict their mythological ark as round. People are going to envision the boat however people.
Envision boats where they are, she said. Coracles are not unusual things to have had in Mesopotamia. The tablet records a Mesopotamian god's instructions for building a giant vessel twothirds the size of a soccer field in area made of rope, reinforced with wooden ribs and coated in bitumen. Finkel said that on paper or stone the boatbuilding orders appear sound, but he doesn't yet know whether it would have floated. A television documentary due to be broadcast later this year will follow attempts to build the ark according to the.
More Kids in the Woods, National Forests in Florida
In the Fall of 2009, the U.S. Forest Service had an opportunity Brian Zielinski, Director of Conservation Operations East NWTF become a available through their More Kids in the Woods grant program. This was a $500,000 grant program that basically focused on getting kids outdoors. The U.S. Forest Service like a lot of other conservation organizations Carl Petrick, Natural Resource Manager, National Forests in Florida is concerned about a trend that they've seen in recent years, less children experiencing outdoor activities, whether it hunting, fishing, hiking, just general nature appreciation. And, along with that is a concern and understanding about natural resources management.
Forest management, the role of prescribed fire, wildfire suppression. So there's this emphasis now and the U.S. Forest Service developed this grant called More Kids in the Woods as way to encourage children to learn more about natural world and to experience some outdoor activities such as shooting bows and fishing and things like that. So we kinda put the wheels in motion and we started talking about potential opportunities to do some work out here at the Turner Center and we were successful in getting this grant. The Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center is a 160 acre facility designed for kids. Kenny Barker, Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center.
We have a shotgun range, a rifle range a 3D archery range, we've got a stock bass pond. We have a large pavillion and a classroom and it is all set up and designed to give kids an opportunity that they may not otherwise have to get outdoors and participate in something a little bit different than what they're used to. Over the last two week we basically set up six different stations for these kids to again to teach them more about wildlife and conservation, and the out doors. Specifically these stations included a.
Turkey call building station, where they were able to go ahead and build a turkey call or a crow call or an owl call. They also learned more about turkey biology and the history of turkey conservation and restoration in this country. They've also been able to participate in a nature walk and some wildlife identification and learn more about forestry and prescribed fire concepts. And also, spent some time with our law enforcement officers to learn why it is important as far as the rule and regulations side of things for managing wildlife.
And so, after they go through the six stations, and then they eat lunch then we take them all as a group to the area. And then our folks and the Division of Forestry also been participating actually demonstrating a prescribe burn and do the different techniques showing what a backing fire is, what a flank fire is. what a head fire is and so its been really good. They get really excited about it as you can image. So, but they're having a blast so it been very successful. Lot of good comments. I've heard from the teachers in schools.
Without this facility I'm not sure that this grant would have been made possible. As I mentioned earlier, it added a very great dynamic and I think that's one of the reasons we were successful in acquiring the monies. But our other partners including the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Florida Division of Forestry, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and of course the U.S. Forest Service. Without the U.S. Forest Service this would have been made possible either since there the one's that you know made the monies available through the More Kids in the Woods program.
