President Biden, Karine Jean Pierre, Hurricane Ian discussed on Afternoon News with Tom Glasgow and Elisa Jaffe


K two vision RLE. Thank you for joining us tonight. As we look at these top stories, The White House says President Biden does intend to run again in 2024. The president reportedly telling the reverend Al sharpton last month he will seek reelection while the two pose for a photograph in the Roosevelt room at The White House. White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre reiterated this on Tuesday today, saying that Biden himself has said that he intends to run in 2024. Big sports headline tonight, Yankee slugger Aaron judge is now the all time single season home run leader in the American League after hitting number 62. He broke the tie he had with Roger Maris after a Homer against the Texas Rangers in Arlington this evening. And Red Cross volunteers from the northwest have landed in Florida to help communities impacted by hurricane Ian, they are assisting with shelters food and cleanup. The Nobel Prize in physics awarded to a trio of scientists today, including one American Joel achenbach is covering the story for The Washington Post and spoke with our Taylor van size. Joel, the award recognizes these three men for their work in quantum information science. It's a bit of a heavy science topic that most of us probably didn't learn in the classroom. What were these men able to accomplish? Yeah, it's kind of a classically heavy, the will during brain boggling topic, quantum mechanics. Essentially, they're all three experimentalists. They did their work first when John clauser, who's the American, he did his work in the late 1960s, early 70s. They built this contraption, this apparatus beamed photons, light particles in opposite directions and showed that essentially what happened to one would affect the other. Supporting this whole quantum mechanical theory called quantum entanglement. It's counterintuitive, essentially these particles are not in contact with each other. So why would affecting one affect the other? Einstein said no way that spooky action at a distance he didn't believe it, but Niels Bohr and Schrodinger are some of these other famous physicists from the 20th century said, no, that's just how reality seems to work. And so their experiments supported that. I'm sure that was totally clear to you. I'm just telling you, it is pretty obtrusive. You know, it's better than magic school bus could have done Joel. I think I appreciate that. Like you said, this experiment that's work that they did is more than 50 years old in some cases. How is it going to impact future scientists? Well, it already has. I mean, essentially a lot of the technologies we use today employ quantum mechanics. I mean, a lasers in transistors and all these things they follow quantum mechanical principles, which and I think the audience is probably heard about nature being kind of a probabilistic thing. It's not all classic billiard balls rolling into each other and having an obvious reaction. So this theory is well supported in reality as we discern it and technologies as we use it, but the way it can be used in the future is with quantum computing and cryptography, codes that can never be broken, encryption that can help be broken. And that people are really excited about that. That's a big field right now. And finally, Joel, unfortunately, it sounds like there's just more rain for the parade of those who wanted to hear Beam Me Up Scotty. No teleportation in the future. It looks like you might be able to send some information somehow, but you have to be able to beam down to the planet with the people eating purple plants on them, whatever, no. You're going to have to stay on the spaceship. Darn. Okay, well, maybe next Nobel Prize, then we'll have something different. You can read about this year's quantum information sciences, Nobel Prize for physics online at Washington Post from Joel auchenbach. And as northwest news radios, Taylor van Sykes. Students at Bayley gets her elementary school are running a little faster with a new pair of shoes on their feet. A nonprofit shoes that fit delivered about 350 pairs of Nikes to students their Nordstrom is going on 12 years of partnering with nonprofits like this one to help provide new and well fitting sneakers to kids in need and local communities. The Seattle storms, very own jewel Lloyd, was there to help give out shoes. It's
