    Spyglass – GPS outdoor navigation toolkit for wildlife tracking & survival (iPhone, iPad, iOS)

    August 22, 2019


    Spyglass is an all-in-one navigation toolkit for those who trek around wilderness and need a powerful and reliable backup. Spyglass uses every sensor available on your device and provides you with a detailed heads-up-display over anything you’re seeing. The app shows your current location in geographic and military grid coordinates, current height above sea level, the direction you are looking in (i.e. the azimuth) in degrees and military units, and the accuracy of magnetic compass and GPS. The amount of data you see on the screen is not constant. Depending on your actions, the data may appear on and disappear from the screen. E.g. when your device is in a relatively static position, the bottom space of the screen is almost empty. But when you start moving the information about your movement speed, the distance to your primary target, and the estimated time of arrival appears. That is, Spyglass in some way adapts to the surroundings and provides you with the information that you might need at this particular moment. But of course you can always set up the app manually via Info – Settings. Here you can choose units, geographic and military grid coordinates, limit the tracking range for your destinations, limit the amount of data shown on the screen, and set up many other options. A double tap on the main screen opens the Quick Switching menu, which lets you switch among different modes. If you turn the camera off and position your device parallel to the ground, it will turn into a standard 2D compass, which might be very useful when you are in the wilds and need to save the battery power. With simple swiping gestures you can change the background color and the color of the HUD elements to your needs and liking. If you turn the maps on, the information will be overlaid over the map type, which you chose via Settings. At the moment we are using Open Cycle Map in its Night Mode. With swiping gestures you can also change the background color and the color of the HUD elements. If you turn the camera on again, the maps will only appear when your device is parallel to the ground. And when your device is in its portrait orientation, it is used as a 3D compass. And here you can also change the background color and the color of the HUD elements.

    Spyglass – how to use the rangefinder to measure distance (iPhone, iPad, iOS)

    August 22, 2019


    Just like a reticle in a sniper rifle, the Rangefinder in Spyglass is based on the height of an average human, which is 1.7 m or 5.6 ft, and is used to visually measure the distance to your target. E.g. a person, a deer, some other creature or object of a similar height. So let’s see how it works. The scale shows the distance from 100 to 500 m with a 50-meter step. And we will use a person as an example. Zoom for higher precision. And if the person fits between the rightmost upper and lower marks, the distance to them is 100 m. If they fit between the leftmost upper and lower marks, the distance to them would be 500 m. And everything in between could be easily measured in your mind with the help of 50-meter steps.

    MN Traditions – BASS College Fishing

    August 22, 2019


    (upbeat guitar music) (energetic drumming) (rock music) – We’re here for our Carhartt Bassmaster College
    Series National Championship, 61 institutions from
    all over the country, 89 two-person teams and
    180 anglers competing for this national championship. Three day event here on
    the Bemidji chain of lakes, Lake Bemidji and then they
    can go into Stump Lake, Irving Lake, Lake
    Marquette and Carr, and the Mississippi River that connects all of
    those different lakes, so that’s what’s happening. It’s a three day event, the full field fishes
    the first two days, and then we cut it down to
    the top 12 after day number 2, and then those top
    12 will battle it out for the National Championship
    on that final day. – Lake Bemidji is
    really at the heart of what Bemidji
    State’s all about. This is our DNA, we’re one
    of the few lakeside campuses in the country actually, so we try to leverage our
    waterways whenever possible. So they have been wanting
    to hold an event like this at one of the
    northern universities. BSU jumped right on it as a
    great opportunity for the school and the community in general
    to host an event like this. – It’s been huge, it’s, you
    know, gave a lot of publicity to the team and the school, being able to fish
    the college series, it’s a lot of fun, you get to
    travel all over the country, learn new techniques,
    fish in different water and everything, it’ll
    definitely be my highlight of my college career. – We fish from Minnesota
    down to Alabama, we fish Tennessee,
    Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, we fish a little
    bit of everywhere. It’s nice because you get
    to experience and travel, see different bodies of
    water, you get ledge fish, fish deep, you can come up
    here and fish in the grass, you can do all kinds
    of different things, it just makes you a lot
    better as an angler, being able to experience
    all these different lakes. – We fish all over the world,
    so we get all different kinds of stuff thrown at us, clear
    water, fishing deep, shallow, wood, so this is all
    new to us up here, I don’t think any of us
    have fished up north, and it’s completely different, so we had to learn
    it pretty quick, with the days we
    had to practice. – It’s the mighty
    Mississippi behind me, it’s a whole lot different
    than Tennessee River, its– the water’s definitely a
    little clearer, and got a ton of them pike and musky out
    there with the biggest thing between here and
    home, and that’s, man you can’t keep them pike
    and stuff off your bait. I’d love to come up here
    and just fish for the pike. I’d definitely love to
    have some of those at home. – One of the things we learn, especially from traveling
    all over the country, is when you go into
    different states, they have inspection
    points when you cross into those state lines, so I
    mean that clean, drain, dry, that’s the main three
    things you need to do. In your livewells, in
    your battery compartments is what I always tell our guys, places where water can
    gather in your boats, but one of the
    things we did here is we had a full decontamination
    process that happened before these boats even put
    in right here on Lake Bemidji and this whole chain of
    lakes that we’re fishing. – That was one of the first
    items that we had to address, and it was the first thing
    we wanted to address, so that included full
    decontamination stations for all of the boats
    coming in to the area, that’s the very
    first thing they did as they rolled into town. – One thing that I
    think is really cool that Minnesota prides itself in is having people at each
    ramp, DNR checking boats, I mean that’s the only
    way to prevent it, ’cause once they get into a
    lake they really do change it. Water clarity, the
    whole ecosystem. – So what we just did, we took
    the boat out of the water, you pull the plug, you empty your livewells to
    get all the crap out of there, and you lower your motor
    to get all the water out of your prop and everything. It’s a really simple
    process, and it’s something that really needs to be done so we don’t spread
    these invasive species, ’cause some of ’em can
    really do a lot of harm, and there’s stuff
    that gets in your boat that you wouldn’t
    even think about, especially in the livewell, these fish puke up all
    this stuff and it’s– you don’t even think about it but it’s something
    that needs to be done. – Invasive species are bad. We see ’em in a lot of other
    lakes, like Kentucky Lake, they have Asian carp, I
    mean we see zebra mussels in almost every lake we
    go to now, it seems like. So it’s nice to go to a
    lake that doesn’t have ’em. – With Bass, and Bassmaster,
    you know we strive, conservation is at the
    forefront of our organization, we try to set the standard
    for how fishing tournaments are supposed to run, and how
    we’re supposed to protect not only the species,
    but our waterways, so other species can thrive and we can just have a
    better planet to live on. (upbeat guitar music)

    Fishing

    August 21, 2019


    Hi. This is Mr. Andersen and this is environmental
    sciences video 20. It is on fishing. These are the famous Sri Lankan stilt fisherman
    trying to eek out a living catching fish in the surf. They make most of their money actually on
    tourists. But this is commercial fishing. We have been able to catch so many fish that
    over fishing is a problem around our planet. What is fishing. It is not only capture of fish but seafood,
    so lobsters and oysters and even kelp fall into this idea of fishing. What techniques? Well first of all where we are fishing is
    important. Wild catch is when we are catching it in the
    wild, in the oceans. Techniques we use are hand and spear. Angling is when you use a hook. We can also use nets and we have been using
    trapping. We have been doing this for thousands of years
    but not on the commercial scale that we are doing so now. And that has led to this problem over fishing. The classic example is the collapse of the
    North Atlantic Cod fishing. The problem here is Tragedy of the Commons. Who owns that area? Nobody. So countries are all fishing it and as a result
    we get this over fishing. Some people have put forward this idea of
    aquaculture or farming fish. And that is a big portion of the fish that
    we eat now. It is has pros. We are not doing wild catch, but there are
    definitely some cons that go along with that. And so the key point with any type of fishing
    is sustainable yield. How many fish can we catch so we keep that
    population healthy. And regulations including quotas are going
    to be a big part of the solution. So we have been fishing for hundreds of years,
    thousands of years they have been catching by hand abalone and oysters. We can spear fish. We can use nets. We can do angling where we are using a hook. And we can use trapping. So we have done that all along but now we
    are capturing fish at a much larger rate. So this would be fishing with giant nets in
    Alaska. And these are these giant crab traps or crab
    pots in Alaska. We can capture huge amounts of seafood and
    as a result, we are dealing with the Tragedy of the Commons. If I am fishing in this small pond, I am okay
    if I capture just a few fish and return some of those fish. But if some body fishes next to me and then
    everybody fishes next to me, eventually that pond does not have a lot of fish in it. And we see this same thing in the ocean. And so the classic example is the collapse
    of the North Atlantic cod stock. And so this is the amount of cod that we were
    catching, but in the 1960s and 1970s we were catching so much cod that it eventually collapsed
    and we had to have a moratorium, where you are not fishing cod in the hopes that they
    will come back. Now if we look at the amount of fish the Canadians
    were catching in the 1970s we see that it really did not increase that much. What is the big change? It is other countries that are fishing for
    the cod. What countries? It is Russia, Germany, France. It is the US. And so what happened at that time is we had
    such an increase in the amount of fishing that that whole fishery collapsed in on itself
    to the point where they were not catching cod and they are going to have to wait for
    that to come back again. So what is important then when we are maintaining
    a fishery like this is the sustainable yield. So if you think of fish like any population
    that grows, a population is going to do exponential growth and then logistic growth. It is eventually going to hit what is called
    the carrying capacity. Now if we look at different levels along this
    graph, at the beginning, what is the growth rate? Well you can see it is not increasing very
    much, so it pretty much has no growth rate. As we go along this curve, at this point you
    can see that the population is increasing dramatically, so there is going to be a huge
    growth rate here, but once we hit that carrying capacity it levels off again. And so I am going to take this picture, put
    it to the side and I am going to show you a different graph. Now I am going to take the population, which
    is right here, I am going to move it down to the bottom and then we are going to graph
    that growth rate. And so again it is low growth rate and the
    beginning and the end and high growth rate in the middle. And so we get a graph that looks like this. It is not very interesting but it is incredibly
    powerful. What we can do is use a graph like this to
    figure out that sustainable yield, how many fish can we catch? And so let’s say for example that at this
    population right here we decide to catch fish at a specific rate, right here. So that is matching the growth rate. And so what is going to happen to the population
    over time? It is going to stay right there. If you ever catch fish at the same rate at
    which this red line exists it will stay right there. The population will never change. Let’s say we catch less fish than that. At a lower growth rate, what is going to happen? Well this amount right here that we did not
    catch will add to the population and so what is going to happen to the population? It is going to move to the right. We are going to have an increase in the amount
    of fish in that area. Now likewise if we were to catch more than
    that amount, so if we are catching more fish than the rate, what is going to happen? It is going to move to the left. And so with a curve like this anything below
    the curve is going to move to the right. And anything above the curve is going to move
    to the left. And so we can figure out what is the population,
    what is the growth rate and we can figure out how many fish to catch. Now why did I color all of these ones down
    here green? It is because anything below this line up
    here is going to keep a sustainable yield of the fish. We might move down to the left and then move
    up to the right again. And so what is the take home message? You want to be fishing when you have a high
    population and you never want to exceed that rate or that line. And so let’s look at what has happened to
    the planet. So if we look at global total fish harvest,
    from 1950 to 2010 you can see that it has actually leveled off. So are we going to have problems into the
    future? For sure. A lot of different fish stocks are seeing
    this over fishing. But if we look at the total amount of seafood
    that we are harvesting it continues to grow up. What is the difference? It is the arrival of aquaculture. It is the farming of these fish. Farming of salmon, or right here they are
    farming catfish. So you can think of aquaculture like just
    a farm for you fish. It is just like having a bunch of cattle in
    an area. And so what are some good parts of this? We can have a greater density of fish. And we do not have to rely on this wild catch. Now what are some of the cons of this however? It is just like having a bunch of cattle in
    an enclosed area. You are going to have a problem with waste. We are going to have to control algae for
    example. We will use herbicides, maybe antibiotics. We could have a mixing of the native and non-native
    fishes. A lot of people are putting forward GMO fish,
    this idea that you could make salmon that can grow much faster. But once they escape they are going to compete
    with the biodiversity of the fish. And so there are all of these problems. The key part is to remember, this whole idea
    of sustainability. And so if we understand this curve, if we
    are fishing up here, what you can do through regulations is you could figure out what is
    the total allowable catch. How many fish could we catch? So let’s figure that out. This is the amount of fish. And then what you can do is you can quotas. We can use individual transferable quotas. So each little fisherman or each little fishery
    gets a set amount of fish that they can catch. It is almost like staking a claim in mining. You can then start to invest in that fishing. And so did you learn the following? Could you pause the video at this point and
    fill in all the blanks? Again, techniques wild catch could be hand
    spear, angling, this would be netting or trapping. We can also do what is called aquaculture
    where we are farming that fishing. The Tragedy of the Commons, the key point
    or the solution is a sustainable yield. And then again, the best way to regulate fishing
    is to figure out how many total can we catch and then give individual fisherman quotas
    of the amount that they can catch. So that is fishing. And I hope that was helpful.
