CHRIS:  Ever wonder what the first message sent out over the internet was?  First of all, before the internet, there was ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network).  In 1969, Charley Kline, a student at UCLA, attempted to DM the Stanford Research Institute in Northern California.  The message was supposed to be “login,” but after “O” the system crashed.  Anyway, an hour later, the system recovered and the complete word “login” was successfully transmitted.

CHRIS:  There are many interesting things about New York, but we’re gonna keep the pizza theme going.   In 1905, the same year that Pittsburg opened the first movie theater solely dedicated to motion pictures, Italian immigrants introduced pizza to the Big Apple!  And, oddly, since the 1980s, New Yorkers have observed a peculiar economic trend:  the price of a slice is just about equal to the price of a subway ride.  And if one goes up, so does the other.  So next time the cost of a slice goes up, you can wow your friends with your predictive powers and proclaim that you can see an increase in subway fares in the near future.  We have no idea why that is.  This is from mentalfloss.com, not the Wall Street Journal.  

Location: Manhattan
Job: Ocean Import Coordinator 
Company Type:  Freight Forwarder
Experience: 2-5 years in import operations

NANCY:  Down now to North Carolina, a great state I’ve had the pleasure of visiting several times, as we have friends and family there.  During our last trip, to Raleigh, right before COVID, I wish I’d known about the Daily Planet Theater downtown.  It’s a gigantic globe with a 2000-square-foot video screen inside showing science and nature stuff!  It’s around 72 feet tall and wide, and was built against the side of a building in downtown Raleigh.  On the outside, the globe projects hi-resolution satellite photos of Earth.  How cool is that?  Actually, describing it doesn’t do it much justice, so go Google the images after this episode!

Location: Charlotte
Job: Domestic Freight Sales Rep with a stable work history and solid track record with a book of business they can call on and hopefully transition over.
Company Type: Successful and growing logistics company
Experience: Looking for 3+ years in freight forwarding/logistics/transportation sales.

CHRIS: Last time, we revealed that the first theater in the world devoted exclusively to motion pictures opened in 1905 in Pittsburgh.  Wanna take a guess at what the first movie shown was?  According to film critic Bob Mondello, it was a 10-minute thriller called "The Great Train Robbery." But a plaque at the theater shows the first film as being “The Baffled Burglar” - which, according to the American Film Institute, wasn’t made until years later.  Which leaves us baffled as to the correct answer!  If YOU know, please let US know!

CHRIS:  Tiny, 1.2 square mile Tangier Island, 12 miles offshore in the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, is a quaint, intriguing island inhabited by 687 people (as of 2020) who have a unique dialect, very different from what you hear throughout the mainland United States.  Besides their distinctive accent, which sounds like a mix of UK and southern US, they use something called “backwards talk” - where an expression such as “you’re too early” actually means “you’re late.”  Check out BBC Travel’s 2018 spotlight on Tangier Island to listen and learn more!
