Ok this is me recording my very first Ipadio(?) broadcast from dissertation Central Chapel Hill North Carolina. I have been volunteer as support technology role and we've got all kinds of technology right here on the table lot of cable phones cameras and the like. We're hoping that this is gonna revolutionize the kinds of information we can share from our satellite here in North Carolina. We hope we're gonna touch a lot of listeners and really there's no rush. We can only hope. Did I say something. Yeah I didn't call somebody. Yeah so we'll do that next. Bye.

It's Mark here and this is second Ipadio(?) call of today. It seem manage to get to call chef Moises so concerned. We're hiding out at five thousand one hundred and fifteen meters and we can see every space cat(?) from where we're located. Obviously today the weather was really good and we can see all the mountains and the snow peaks. A beautiful sight. When we arrived in to Gull of Sher(?) the rain came down a bit and Mike Cody who's the other guide on this trek and myself set up the Skype link we got for the beacon which connects with satellite so we can create sort of a broadband via satellite and we did our first in the highest call to our

Ok our topic is 1950's Cold War. After World War 2 Russia one of the world's to retires(?) they tried to spread communism across Europe. The United States policy containment tried to stop the spread of communism. The meeting of containment is the blocking of another nations attempt to spread communism. There are many reasons as to why the Cold War began. One of the reason is that the United States and the Soviet Union had different ideology. The Soviet Union ___ the leadership of just none(?). As a dictator he ___ his country to close trading policies. President German(?) wanted open trading policies with all nation. US authority used America as a democratic and national nation but they didn't treat their citizens equally. The user of satellite ___.

Numeration(?) lining up place value. The moon is the Earth's(?) natural satellite. All the other things that orbits the earth are man made. Some satellites orbits the earth every day. The moon orbits the earth once a month. It is the only place in the solar system that astronauts(?) have been able to visit. The moon is relatively close to us much closer than any of the planets, but it is very different from Earth. It is much smaller than Earth and it has no atmosphere. Now we can study the moon and other planets better thanks to the international space station. It is a research facility located in outer space. It has been visited by astronauts(?) from 14 countries. Comparing things is a great way to discover differences. It is the same with math. All numbers have unique qualities. You can discover them when you compare. Some numbers are big and some numbers are small. There's an easy way that I'd like

Tags: tomorrow weather, strong wind, tomorrow afternoon
Hi! So, Keith Haydn and Rhys from Health and Safety Gone Mad. Day 6. A difficult day walking because of the strong wind from behind. Kept pushing the pulks on the glassy ice from behind us and swinging them round so it's constantly: being dragged off course, drag to the side. It was quite tiring but we have had a good day. We're pushing on hard. We found an area of open water which meant we had deviate from our from our course we called it into the organisers so that they can let any other competitors in the area know. We don't know where anybody is, we haven't seen anybody for a few days now. So we're walking blind, we don't know how we're doing we don't know how we're getting on. We're in the tent now we're all safe having something to eat looking forward to pressing on hard again tomorrow. Weather should be much the same as today and we're hoping to finish in time for tea tomorrow afternoon. I'll pass onto Haydn... HAYDN: This is Haydn reporting in with the satellite phone courtesy of wireless innovations - thank you very much. Between us all we have: 7 blisters, we've covered __________ Finish line tomorrow, looking forward to it. Here's Rhys. Nope Rhys is otherwise occupied. See you all back in blighty!

A few questions ago I was alone on the road side shelf on the coast of Antartica beginning over 59 day 17 hundred kilometers journey risky across Antartica from the South and it was very scary prospects and yet every single day I would use my satellite phone to leave a phonecast using ipadio and they phonecast we then uploaded to a number of different web sites and shared with lots of people thousands of people following the expedition through Facebook and Twitter. It was such an easy way to tell my story in a really immediate and powerful way and since I've been back lots of people who followed the expedition have told me how important those phonecast that came to them and how they really felt involved in my journey through the fact that they could hear me and hear what has happened to me that day every single evening and now that I'm back I have a really incredible

Tags: captain scott, British Antarctic Monument Trust, 100 years
http://www.justgiving.com/Felicity-Aston Well today is the 17th of January it is exactly a hundred years after Captain Scott reached the South Pole - unfortunately over a month after Amundsen has already beaten him to it but I've been thinking about Scott and his men and the story all day as I've been skiing along. Scott is not really someone that people sympathize usually with or not sympathize but identify I guess, because they were all from a totally different age. I mean I can't imagine what the response would be if you told him for example 'oh there's a woman who is going to stki across Antarctica.' That idea would have been totally inconceivable to him that a woman would do that and yet his story i find is as captivating as anybody else and that the story I heard of as a child, I guess is where I first got this idea, that Antarctica was somewhere where you came to prove yourself and put yourself against nature - that sort of thing. A place where heroes were made. And I do think that Scott is a hero, but I think it's a real shame that he's been pulled apart in recent years. As a leader of teams myself in the past, I know how difficult it is to read people. And I think perhaps the greatest tribute you can be given as a leader is though the comments and the loyalty of the people in your teams. If you read the things that were written about Scott then, both before and after his death it is clear that they would have followed him anywhere, and they have a lot of respect and admiration for him. I think that should carry perhaps more weight than the analysis of the story when we know the outcome and that can't but colour our judgement, I think, the fact that we knew what the eventual outcome was. But the story of Scott is ultimately just a tragic human story where 5 people lost their lives - but they weren't the last people to die in Antarctica unfortunately. I'm an ambassador of the British Antarctic Monument Trust which is raising money for a memorial to the 28 men and 1 woman who died in the British Antarctic Territories. If you'd like to find out more about that - or even perhaps make a donation towards the momument being planned you can find the link on my website (www.felicityaston.co.uk) and read some more about all the people who have tragically lost their lives in Antarctica as well as the Scott party. So, I guess abit of a sad day really - and I just feel very fortunate that unlike Scott I have a plan B, I have a satellite phone and I can ring for help if things got really really bad. But, this close to the end of my journey, I thoroughly hope that I won't have to do that at this stage and that the only phonecall I'll be making will be for the planes to come and pick me up and take me back to base camp - sooner rather than later I hope, but we shall see. Plodding on everyday and making progress.
