    Can't understand a phrase in a video. Please help.

    Turning now to the Gulf region. After mild overnight temperatures of about 26 degrees most parts will be very hot tomorrow. Some parts of the country may reach as high as 40 degrees Celsius. 4:46 ????? inland on high ground, especially in mountainous areas, the temperatures could drop to as low as 28 degrees.

    ... as high as 40 degrees Celsius. There's a chance of some thunder inland on higher ground, especially in mountainous areas, where temperatures could drop ...

    Re: Can't understand a phrase in a video. Please help.

    Can I ask for the same sort of help in the same thread?

    - Have you spoken to the new 3rd Engineer yet?
    - Yes. He seems like a good guy.
    - Really? I was starting to think he might be depressed or have marriage problems or something.
    - Why do you think that?
    - ????? When I tried to speak to him yesterday, he just reacted like he was deaf or something, and completely ignored me.
    - Well, if you were speaking to him too loudly, or even shouting at him, he would feel humiliated in public. Men from that culture don't like being spoken to like that.

    Same problem, please

    - Sir, I’ve just received a security call. There’s a ship 10 miles north of our present position. She’s reporting a man overboard.
    - Right. What help do they need?
    - Uh… another ship has answered to their call and is making its way to the scene of the incident now. All other vessels in the area are asked to be on Stand-By to join in the ????? rescue, if necessary.
    - OK, have you checked their current position?
    - Yes, sir, here it is. I figure we are about 40 minutes away.

    One more please! I'm really up to mastering those notorious English listening skills

    - Good morning. Training department.
    - Good morning. Captain Belov here.
    - Nice to hear from you, Captain. Are we gonna see you at our next seminar?
    - Yes, that’s why I’m calling. I just wanted to check a couple of things. Can you tell me what topics will be covered in the morning?
    - Well, for session one it’s the ????? collision avoidance. And for session two it’s “Regulations for Inflatable Liferafts”.
    - Right. Good. The sessions are aimed at all ranks, aren’t they?
    - Oh, yes. The program has something for everyone.
    - OK, I’ll see you on the sixth.

    It sounds like 'fact' to me.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    It sounds like "facts" to me, but I have no idea what "Facts Collision Avoidance" might be. Could it be "F.A.C.T.S."? An acronym for something?

    Could it be The facts: collision avoidance?
