Guest Park II, Foliage Edition: In which, after a 40 minute traffic jam on the Palisades last Saturday, we visit Bear Mountain Park. It was nice scenery for gridlock, all apparently due to the park "Octoberfest." When we finally got in, we headed to the Overlook Lodge, where they had just finished serving what seems like a popular and lavish local brunch.

It been decades since I "done" Bear Mountain, and there were many surprises. The lodge dining room looks like that of a plush nursing home, but the lobby (left) is gorgeous, with a stunning view of Hessian Lake (above) that was drawing Japanese tourists like a magnet. A fireplace sent fragrant woods moke into the fall air. T he decor is a style that might be called High Adirondack Ursine. (Note the bears on the upholstery occupied by some cute guy from Brooklyn.) Even the sconces have bears.

We strolled down to the Octoberfest, which was more like a crappy flea market with buckets of beer; aside from some oompah music in the distance, there was little to fan the flame of German cultural nostalgia. One Buy Men Canada Goose Chateau Parka Spirit Australia vendor had taxidermy bugs and critters in frames, including a shadowbox with two little Thailand bats.

Guest Park! This Sunday past, we decided that the foliage in Prospect Park wasn quite advanced enough, and headed up the Palisades Parkway toward Bear Mountain. Squabbling over having missed the visitors center, and uncertain just where the Bear Mountain exit was, we peeled off into the vast, deserted parking lot of the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area, a spot my family used to visit on childhood car trips.

No renovation could ever make it as cool as it looked back in 1923:

The March sun still no match for the gusty wind, but strong enough to bounce off the giant helmets of well protected Park Slope wheelwomen. These two were coasting along next to the hotly contested Prospect Park West bike lane. The action was quite far from shore; a young photographer named Nicole was training her big telephoto on it, and was kind enough to e mail me this shot. They have long beaks with protuberances called lamellae, which they use to strain out small crustaceans and plant life. I don know what had them so frenzied today, unless this is how they always behave, but they were so intent on "shoveling" in water that they hardly came up for air (or a photo). This shot (right), from Cornell, shows that cool beak. Apparently it no big deal to spot these, but I was tickled.

I won be getting to Prospect Park today to enjoy the inch or so of rain predicted. I felt a bit guilty for dissing mallards; they may be ubiquitous, but they are lovely.

Check out the gold bear atop the mirror. All the panels are hand painted with local scenic wonders and wildlife.

The building itself is gorgeous, and even the dedication near the fireplace carries out the Arts Crafts theme in the typeface and lanterns. What a cool way to honor your parents memory. In stark contrast, the grand, 1915 Bear Mountain Inn stares out at the carousel across the meadow, shuttered, fenced off and empty. As the sun set, it looked mighty spooky, perfect for Hallowe gatherings. (Someone please tell me: Are those vultures on the chimney, eyeballing the wurst at the Octoberfest?) But it actually closed for renovation, according to their website, and will reopen at some point as another "luxury" venue.

"The economy stinks, but if you can make a go of it in this environment, we should be whistling Dixie here in a couple of years," he said.

Porman said he had to make "a fairly significant initial investment" to get products in the door so the store would have something to sell.

Just a stone's throw from Lancaster County's border, outdoor mega retailers Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops offer low prices that Waterfowlers R Us can't compete with, so Porman, Topper and Riebling said they plan to focus on personal service to draw customers.

"You go into Cabela's to buy a Tim Grounds goose call and that thing hasn't been tuned since it left Tim's shop," Porman said. "Jason tunes every call that comes in here, and he'll work with you when you buy it to make sure it's blowingthe way you want it to."

There aren't actually any birds in the basement, but rather, it's Dave Rhine, owner of Final Glide Championship Calls of Quarryville, and members of his pro staff leading a seminar on goose calling.

A career firefighter in Frederick, Md., Porman is a lifelong duck and goose hunter who never could seem to find close to home the things he needed to chase waterfowl in southern Lancaster County.

"It's what I do," Topper said.

"We just had a guy come in here with his dog to buy bibs, and Jeff ended up giving him a 10 minute training session for his dog," Porman said. "You won't find that at Cabela's."

"I just got tired of running all over the place for stuff decoys, shot shells, dog equipment," he said.

And he had to make that investment in the face of one Discount Youth Canada Goose Expedition Parka Navy Australia of the nation's worst economic situations of the past century.

And here in Pennsylvania, the window of good snow goose hunting is relatively short basically extending from the end of January to early April, when bird numbers in the area can fluctuate widely.

Still, excitement for geese and goose hunting is palpable inside the new Waterfowlers R Us store in the strip center.

Porman's initial partner has since left the business, and he's now teamed up with Jason Topper, of Willow Street, and Jeff Riebling, of Thomasville.

Discount Youth Canada Goose Expedition Parka Navy Australia

"Besides buying all those decoys, you have to store them and have a way of getting them out into the field," Topper said. "It's not really worth it to a lot of guys to make the investment in a good snow goose rig for that little amount of hunting."

By heart, they're both just as nuts as Porman about hunting ducks and geese and about training dogs.

You need hundreds to lure in those notoriously decoy shy birds with any consistency.

"Everything was cash up front," he said.

By trade, Topper is a millworker and Riebling is an electrician.

Besides one on one service, Waterfowlers R Us also plans to offer a few things you won't find at any sporting goods store in the state.

Like their rentable, snow goose decoy spread, which comes complete with a truck and trailer driven by Topper, Porman or Riebling.

A store for waterfowlers

Several years ago, he began hatching in his head the idea of opening his own sporting goods store geared specifically toward waterfowl hunting and dog training.

In the last week of August, he and a partner pulled the trigger on Porman's idea and opened Waterfowlers R Us in Highland Commons.

Riebling is a championship dog trainer whose knowledge and expertise are available for the asking.

The sounds of honking geese waft out of the store's basement, spilling into its showroom and out the front door.

But simply loving the game and being in a hot area doesn't get a waterfowling store off the ground.

"This is what I want this place to be," said one of the store's owners, Scott Porman of Rohrerstown. "I want people to feel like they can come in here and hang out with other waterfowl hunters to talk about hunting or dog training or whatever."

Given the facts that Lancaster County arguably is the epicenter of waterfowl hunting in Pennsylvania, with thousands upon thousands of migrating ducks and geese winging through the area every fall, and that Pennsylvania leads all of North America as the top Canada goose hunting destination in terms of annual harvest, Porman felt certain a waterfowl driven store could succeed here.

Anyone who has hunted snow geese successfully knows it's a decoy intensive venture.

Dr. GRANDIN: Well, there's been a lot of interest in it. I was really happy to say that we're making some of the bestseller lists.

You know, it's crouching down a little bit, it's moving around little bit differently. They're just very good at reading animal behavior. And I think in most cases that can explain some of their successes.

Temple Grandin doesn't see the world like most of us do. She does, she would say, see the world more like most animals: a place of fear without emotion where your thoughts come to you in pictures rather than in words.

Men Canada Goose Hybridge Jacket Black Australia Shop

FLATOW: Yeah, you write in your book about how you've noticed that animals do not like to stand with their legs crossed or feet together. And that some of the pens were forcing them to do that and you designed that out of it.

A Conversation with Temple Grandin

You may remember her Thinking in Pictures. Well, her latest book is Animals In Translation. She now joins us.

Dr. GRANDIN: I think in most cases, a lot of these animal communicators are very good animal behavior people. And a lot of them are visual thinkers and their picking up very subtle body cues from the animal.

Dr. TEMPLE GRANDIN (Colorado State University):

You know, the things that scare a prey/species animal like cattle are a whole lot of little visual details that people just don't tend to notice. And one Men Canada Goose Hybridge Jacket Black Australia Shop of the big problems they used to have is the people just wanted to get out there and yell and scream and push and shove and you know more and more prods. Rather than remove the things that the cattle were afraid of.

FLATOW: How has your book been received?

Dr. GRANDIN: Because that's how I think.

But let's get into talking about how autism is similar animal behavior. The thing is I don't think in a language and animals don't think in a language. It's sensory based thinking, thinking in pictures, thinking in smells, thinking in touches. It's putting these sensory based memories into categories. That's the basis of how an animal would think. One thing I want to say is, animals do have emotion. But fear tends to be one of the most primal emotions.

Language is not actually used in the actual designing process that is all done in pictures.

Welcome to SCIENCE FRIDAY, Dr. Grandin.

FLATOW: And so you've been able to design a device that animals will readily use as where other people have failed? Because you can think

So I got down in the shoots to take pictures of what the cattle were seeing. And people thought that was just kind of crazy. And I found that they were afraid of shadows. They were afraid of a reflection off the bumper of a truck. They were afraid of seeing people up ahead. And if you remove these visual based details, then the cattle would walk right up the shoot. In the beginning when I first started doing that, I mean people just couldn't even see why I was doing it.

FLATOW: So you don't read animals minds, don't want our listeners to confuse that?

Dr. GRANDIN: Well to understand animal thinking you've got to get away from a language. See my mind works like Google for images. You put in a key word; it brings up pictures. See language for me narrates the pictures in my mind. When I work on designing livestock equipment I can test run that equipment in my head like 3 D virtual reality. In fact, when I was in college I used to think that everybody was able to do that. And language just sort of, you know, gives an opinion. Like, oh, that's a good idea or oh, I just figured out how to design that.

And you've got to get the lighting right. They're afraid of the dark. If the lights were going, blasting in their eyes like the sun or there's a reflection on a shinny piece of metal moving, they're going to be afraid of that. And you get rid of those things their afraid of then their going to walk right in.

Because of her autism Dr. Grandin says she can understand how animals see the world in a way that most humans cannot. She has written about her experiences with autism and her observations of animals in many books.

And then when I did Thinking in Pictures I started interviewing people in detail about how they thought. And that really gave me insight into how my thinking was different. And that some people think much more in words. And then I'm thinking, well, that has to be how an animal would think. There's no other way an animal could possibly think.

FLATOW: You're listening to TALK OF THE NATION SCIENCE FRIDAY. I'm Ira Flatow. For the rest of the hour, a look inside the often mysterious world of autism through the eyes of someone who has made a career out of overcoming the roadblocks the illness put in her way.

Dr. GRANDIN: No. And I always get asked all the time about animal communicators and I really don't want to get into a discussing whether ESP exists or not. Let's just stick with, you know, the other more concrete things.

FLATOW: And why do you think your autism allows you to understand how animals think?

Dr. GRANDIN: Well, that's getting into the restrainer systems that I designed in the 1990s. I designed a system holding a cattle in the meat plant, where they straddle a conveyor. And if you get things set up right they just walk in really quietly.

Dr. GRANDIN: Well, the thing is, I thought everybody thought in pictures. When I was in high school and college, I thought everybody could think in pictures. And my first inkling to my thinking was even different was when I was in college and I read an article about you know, some scientist said that the caveman could not have designed tools until they had language.

Let me formally introduce her. Temple Grandin is an Associate Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. She joins us from studies of KPBS in San Diego.

Dr. GRANDIN: The first thing I thought about is how they see. I mean, I'd read in my physiology books that, when I was in college, that cattle had 360 degree vision. And I was out in the feed yards in Arizona back in the 1970s. And, you know, some of the cows would just walk up the shoots to get their vaccinations. Other cattle would refuse to go through the shoots.

Temple Grandin is autistic. Her writings about her struggles with autism, her fear, her anxiety, the overwhelming sensation of smell and sound, provide an intriguing glimpse into the world of autistic people.

FLATOW: Mm hmm. When did you first discover that you could do this? That you could understand how animals think?

After being used in over a dozen major elections since May 2006, there has not been one documented case of a legally eligible voter in Indiana who could not cast a ballot if they wanted to vote. Not one.

By the numbers, there have been 11 statewide elections, six municipal elections and dozens of special elections since Indiana's Voter ID law has been in effect. Despite these fraud free elections, Democrat candidates such as Hillary Clinton have continued to attack Voter ID laws with baseless claims.

The first test following the Supreme Court's decision on April 28, 2008, was the highly anticipated Democratic primary election in the state. Concerns from the Democratic Party and media that tens of thousands of poor and minority voters would not be able to vote that May because of the law preceded the election.

Indiana's Voter ID law did not suppress the vote among Democratic leaning voters. It protected their votes, which led to the most unlikely of outcomes in the state's presidential contest.

Those prognostications proved to be false, as the election was historic in terms of turnout percentage and votes cast. Later that year, Barack Obama became the first Democrat in 40 years to win Indiana's electoral votes.

Men Canada Goose Snow Mantra Parka Black Australia

Following its passage, the law was immediately challenged in court by those claiming that tens of thousands of people would be disenfranchised by it. Supreme Court in 2008 saw through this fallacy and allowed the law to stand.

Leading up to the passage of Indiana's law in 2005, the bipartisan Carter Baker Commission, chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker, determined that all states experienced repeated acts of in person voter fraud which should be addressed.

Discount Baby Canada Goose Elijah Bomber Red Australia

WHILST staying a few days at Manhattan, a little town in Kansas, I spent some hours in the office of a dentist, Dr. C. Blackley, who is also an ornithologist, having stuffed a goodly number of the birds of the state. He was then occupied with a fine specimen of the common pelican (Pelicanus communis) one of a flock of over a thousand that passed over the town in the month of April, some of them alighting in the neighbouring marshes. These Discount Baby Canada Goose Elijah Bomber Red Australia birds are not unfrequent visitors to these far inland regions, and I have known them shot and brought to me from the alkali lakes in Colorado, both regions from 600 to 800 miles from the sea. The doctor told me an amusing incident of a day wild goose shooting in the vicinity. He took with him to one of the ponds frequented by wild geese, a stuffed specimen of the Canada goose, to act as a decoy. Having firmly planted his bird in the sand with its wooden platform well covered over, he lay behind the bushes awaiting a shot. Suddenly there was a rush of wings, and like a flash of lightning a golden eagle swept down on the decoy, knocking the bird over, and tearing out some of the stuffing. The eagle then sat down near his prey, staring with amazement at its remarkably quiescent character, as well as at the strange wooden appendage attached to its claws. Deeming there was something uncanny about such a goose, and there might be danger in the neighbourhood, he prudently flew away. Unfortunately a branch of a tree prevented the sportsman from shooting the marauder.
