They fall in love with the children born of their dalliances or just anybody near the river. Who looks like they be good company.

Unpacking Israeli History
"Back in twenty seventeen, the New York Times published an article about Amadeo Garcia Garcia. The. Last Living Speaker of the top story. Once, spoken for centuries by thousands of members of an Amazon tribe Madeo, the sole survivor, and the last person on earth to know the language his tried which had lived uncontactable for centuries along Amazon River in Peru slowly died out due to the weapons diseases brought to them from intruders when Avodados brother passed away his last remaining relative the missionary asked Amodio how he felt. Adele responded in the broken Spanish that he had. The only way he had to communicate with outside world he said. It's now over for us. Why? Dale no longer has some to speak to and when you have no one else to speak to, you will lose your language. That's why was over for Amodio. Losing a language is like losing an identity, a culture history. I don't mean to sound over dramatic here but losing a language is really losing oneself. Looking back at the history of the Jewish people that Jews faced a very similar problem. And the reality today is that over the last one, hundred, fifty years, a modern miracle took place for almost two thousand years Hebrew the language of the Torah the Bible and so much Jewish literature you know the prayers was mostly reserved for the ritual. And now. Jews. Over the world's beekeeper, a language that was essentially dead as a spoken language. Something like this has never happened in history of language. The. Fact that the majority of Jews around the world speak Hebrew today is not something to take for granted. There are approximately fourteen point, seven, million Jews in the world and six point seven, million of them live in Israel where Hebrew is the national language. And many hundreds of thousands outside of Israel, speak language as well learning it in. Jewish. Day schools and summer camps or at home. Short. The Bible prayers and religious texts were written and read in Hebrew. Literally nobody spoke in daily life for like almost two thousand years. So How'd an almost extinct biblical language reemerge as spoken language in the span of only a few decades? Was Zionism that deserves the credit Certain. Figure named Elliot's Ben Yehuda. And what is it always obvious that Hebrew would be the national language of the Jewish state. Let's jump back in time to learn about the history of the Hebrew language details about the spoken language of Hebrew in ancient times are not perfect. Here's what we know. In the Bible the Jews otherwise as Hebrews spoken ancient Biblical version of. Biblical Hebrew was the spoken language of the Jews for over a thousand years. But one of the Romans destroyed the second Jewish Temple in seventy CE HEBREW AGAIN. To die. Out.

Then we would have to go much further. We're talking 60 something years to get to around 1971, which is what we would say is the beginning of academic concerns about what sonar is doing to wildlife, the effects that it's having on whales and other creatures and animals in the ocean. And there were there were two men. That we're looking into this Roger Payne and Douglas Web. They went on to prove that Before humans had ships, small ships, large ships, massive ships just go traveling across the ocean and within the ocean before we were doing that. The tones from creatures called fin whales. So there's a specific type of wheel the tones that they were generating and the processes we've talked about. Prior to this, they could travel as far as for 1000 Miles. Within the ocean and still be discernible against just the ambient general background noise that exists when you're in the ocean. 4000 miles.

These other whales could hear them. Yeah, it's pretty a terrible example. Well, I mean, it's It's pretty close to the Internet. When you think about just how large the ocean is and how far away that is. If you're talking about 4000 miles in every direction. Yeah, That's a good point that a lot of people don't realize that the Internet is for 1000 miles long. That is a there's a hard limit. That has been put into place. We did not make the rules..
"Today a monster. If you're of a certain age, you might remember the nineteen fifty four movie creature from the Black Lagoon. Here's the plot.

The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right.

Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned.

I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities. He described in a log I how his daughter! Daughter was taken by Jaka Luna One day one day she was swimming, so it's she was pulled under and vanished. Nobody was ever recovered grief-stricken.

Henry Ford's Rubber Utopia
"It all started in in nineteen twenty five. Henry Ford was having lunch and his Dearborn Michigan Mansion with his good friend business partner entire magnate Harvey firestone Harvey. RV and Ford had been friends and partners since Ford started building cars decades earlier. So yeah just remember like he invented the model t which I like cheap car and basically he brought the car to the mass. Exactly Mr Firestone had begun ranting this time primarily focused on the impending rubber cartel that had been proposing England by one Winston Churchill. I am not a crooked. You know that payments de Yeah with a cigar and he's like on this day I I am not a crook and it will live in infamy. Yep that's him. The purpose of also the was Churchill. The king no the purpose of the rubber cartel was to limit the export of rubber in order to not overextend national resources. In case there was another World World War One thousand nine hundred eighty five probably a good idea but harvey firestone didn't like that idea. He believed that rubber prices were going to spike in the US as a result and therefore negatively affect firestone tires. Not some things never change Harvey firestone was not alone in this fear even even presidential candidate. FDR feared the effects of a rubber tariff. Remember was viewed. As the automotive industry's chokepoint seen as even more crucial than oil it's crazy. The the automotive industry relied on vulcanized rubber for literally everything from tires to hoses gaskets. A price increase of any kind could sink the young business so there there was a legitimate fear of turtles. Pain passing seems somewhat reasonable. Also it's it's it's kind of like okay here newsflash guys. If you're listening to this this might lose some you know in. I believe in climate change. And it's SORTA like yeah making some changes like you know not dumping tons of poisons into rivers and stuff might be more expensive for some people but in the at the end of the day. It's good not to have poisoned rivers and it's also probably good to have like rubber to defeat the Nazis. Yeah Germany was totally destroyed and they were afraid of something all of Europe. Yeah they're afraid of something like that happening again because those wounds had not been healed all and Churchill was just saying like hey fellers hello. Hello how does he talk. Talk like this is how are we talk again elegant. Listen listen fellows. That women's of all are still fresh insulting. I say that maybe we just save some of US supplies in case of fruit bikes out to again rubber. Blow Hurrah. Yes that's always saying always saying. Hey guys the whole world was just at war four. I think it might happen again. Maybe we should just like chill and be ready and these guys are like a money so harvey firestone was fed up with living in constant fear of their so he decided the best course of action would be to grow his own rubber smart. This wasn't the first time he had some some crazy idea. In fact Harvey tried to declare economic independence from the UK and fly rubber under the American flag. A few years earlier but that was truly the ramblings of a madman who doesn't seem to understand that you can't just not claim another country's resources by saying this cheaper so I'm just going to say it's it's American now although now that I think back on it that's kind of how we did a lot of stuff so yeah but harvey actually had a plan. He decided that he was going to start his own plantation in Liberia where the conditions were almost perfect for growing rubber trees by keeping the production in house he could avoid all the access fees associated with importation from other countries. Henry Ford had also tried growing his own rubber a year earlier. In one thousand nine hundred eighty four he had purchased this large quantities of land in the Florida everglades only to eventually do nothing with them. It was cheaper for four to import. The rubber. The idea of dramatic price is increase was still only speculation. But Still Harvey's plans had peaked and reports interests and after the lunch meeting was over. He requested that it's personal aide aide Leopold would find out where the best place to grow rubber Leopold come over here boy. Where's the best place to go? Rob A AH go find out how Liberia was the obvious choice. Harvey firestone discovered. It had the perfect climate when he put his plantation there but unfortunately Henry Ford word was very very very racist and he would not dare step foot in such an uncivilised and African society so they came to the conclusion. I mean that the rubber should be grown where it originated in the Amazon. So rubber comes from both vines and trees and you let it grow and then when you chop it you squeeze the vines and Latex Literal Latex comes out trees yeah so it's a liquid and then they they put out onto like big flat drying areas than when it dries. You can pull it up like a sheet of Latex and then you take a bunch of latex yeah stack stack into bales. And then that's what gets shipped out to like Volkan Ization plants and stuff like that. So these plantations are really only concerned with drawing the vines and extracting latex from okay okay and Liberia had the per client. But what about the Amazon Amazon also. Very clearly great. Climate only problem. It's a lot harder harder to get into the rainforest than it is in Africa. Got You throughout the nineteenth century. The Amazon River Basin supplied all of the world's rubber and made up forty percent of Brazil's exports sports at the height of the rubber boom in the second half of the nineteenth century but the Amazon's rubber room quickly turned to bus as plantations in Asia and England. Were able to go. Rubber and much denser populations and much more efficiently in Amazon many natural species that are not present in other countries limit the growth of trees so but organizing united plantations and other countries the efficiency was greatly increased. Henry had another incentive to go to South America besides his racism in End Theodore Roosevelt's book through the Brazilian wilderness. He accounts his experiences traveling through the Amazonian rainforests. One of his most significant observations is that many fast-flowing rivers could provide an almost perfect power source for any industry bold enough to be born there. He claimed that the right kind of senators such his enterprising businessmen of foresight coolness and suggest city who would be willing to put migrants to work for an advantage that would be mutually beneficial will give rise to a a great industrial civilization money. If anyone thought they could fill that description it was Henry Ford art now. Henry Ford did not really make cars. Henry Ford thought that he made men the maker. Men's like me. This builder of meant the cars they produced produced were simply a byproduct of his training. He was praised as a sociologist manufacturer. If anyone could reshape the native Brazilians into prosperous factory workers it was Henry Ford. They don't want to be or so he thought they don't want that.

So plan your sand castle contests accordingly because earth finishes a new rotation around its axis once every twenty four hours most coastal areas witness to high tides and two low tides per day but there are loads of exceptions the layout of Continents Islands and Peninsulas impedes tides in certain places a parts of the Gulf coast for example only see one daily set of high and low tides no matter where you are though the tides will vary in strength from day to day all over the world during full moons in new moons when the Earth Moon and sun are arranged in a straight line high tides are especially high and low tides are really low. We call these extreme tides spring tides which despite the name occur all year round not just in the springtime but let's turn back to turn again arm although it's shallow and narrow the turn again feeds into a broad bay mainly cook inlet on this wide expanse the difference between high and low tides. I e the tidal range. Can Be Stark the cook inlet water level at high tide. Maybe thirty five feet or ten and a half meters higher than it was during the preceding low tide and these are exactly the ingredients needed to produce tidal bores after a low tide on cook inlet water funnels into the tournament arm generating bore waves that barrel inland sometimes travelling at speeds up to twenty four miles per hour. That's nearly thirty nine kilometers per hour since bores only happened when the circumstances are just right not all waterways the touch the ocean can get them in total. There are eighty or so rivers around the globe that undergo tidal bores the phenomenon tends to be at its most dramatic during spring tides whereas the turning and arm has twice daily tides the Amazon River only receives chiefs bores on the days of new and full moons once the spring tides arrive water from the Atlantic comes charging up the Amazon River temporarily reversing its natural flow waves generated by this process have been known to journey about five hundred miles or eight hundred kilometers. There's inland code AROCCA. The Amazon Boers attained considerable size measuring upwards of thirteen feet or four meters tall in some cases the strongest poor Arocca events of all take place every year on the equinoxes to to prepare for these searches local residents move their boats and livestock safely away from the Amazon accidents do still happen though Jacques Cousteau wants lost a boat depar- AROCCA waves while filming in South America Tidal bores impact ecosystems wherever they occur trees he's rocks and river bottom sediment get pushed around by the waves and those aren't the only things they turn up down in the Amazon current reversals can leave stunned or dead animals floating in the water attracting hungry piranhas strong bores are also prone to object fish from rivers stranding them on beaches or launching them into the air.

Environmentalists fear Bolsonaro policies could speed Amazon deforestation
"Today we're looking at Brazil's rainforests sometimes referred to as the earth's lungs because of the carbon dioxide it absorbs and the oxygen it brings out Leslie hook environment. Correspondent spoke to Jerry Lee. Our Brazil bureau chief about fears that both in our presidency will undermine environmentalist efforts to preserve the forest and its wealth of by diversity. So Joe what's the situation at the moment. When it comes to deforestation in Brazil, the situation at the moment on deforestation is it hit a peak around two thousand eight of around twenty seven thousand square limited a year and its since come down sharply over the past ten years or so so it's much lower than it used to be. But still there's a severe persistent amount of deforestation. It's still going on mostly by illegal miners, loggers and unethical ranches, a minority we should say of agricultural produces a small minority, but still very persistent, and there's a lot of land conflict going on on the edge of Amazon. That's feeding this deforestation. Now, I understand that the Amazon rainforest contains about one hundred billion tons of carbon which is ten times global fossil fuel emissions. Can you just explain in a nutshell why the Amazon is so important to the environment? The. John. Ironically enough is the main source of emissions in Brazil because it contains much carbon. If you deforested you're unleashing that carbon into the atmosphere. So the zones a huge carbon Bank, and it serves as a major system for controlling the atmosphere, not just in South America. But also globally and one of the key points in Brazil, and one of the reasons why Brazil has tried to control deforestation from its own interest. Is that they believed that the Amazon is a source of much of the rain that feeds the tropical agricultural power of Brazil, dire Bolsonaro has said he wants to curb excessive policing by the country's environmental agency. And he's gained a lot of support from the farmers lobby. When exactly does he mean when he says that well, he talks about an industry find. So he talks about the main environmental agency Bama and the national parks agency, which is called ICM bio, he talks about these having a kind of industry funds, but I just. Oh out and find farmers for the sake of it to try to produce revenue for the federal government. And this is very popular among farmers farmers in Brazil held to account according to a forest code, which limits how much they're allowed to deforest and these limits can be quite severe up in the Amazon region. You're on the allowed to deforest twenty percent of your land in some areas in the south. It's much more relaxed in south of Brazil where widespread agriculture's being present for much longer. So he's appealing to the farmers on that account. There is a point to ease complaints. Brazil is a very bureaucratic country and environmental regulations are no different. But the danger of what he is talking about here is to try to pull Obama back from doing its job, and that could be very risky for not only the Amazon, but the other Brazilian biomass such as the Atlantic forest, which is in the southeast of Brazil, and the Suharto which is where a lot of the soy farming happens in Brazil. So in addition to reigning in Alabama's you've just described. What other measures has he talked about that would have big impacts on the environment. The regulations only embalmer these are the main ones the supervision of Obama and easy. And by these are, the major ones, but one of the other key things that he's talked about is combining the ministry of agriculture with the ministry of the environment and putting in charge of that super ministry, a farmer or an agricultural presentative in doing such a thing who'd be observing a long tradition in Brazil, which is putting the FOX in charge of the hen coop. So it would be tantamount to basically subordinating the environment to agricultural interests. And this is something that's got people very very concerned in environmental circles, if you had to sort of summarize farmers attitude toward deforestation preserving the rainforest, what our farmers views in general on these deforestation policies traumas in general in Brazil, most of them will tell you they're against further deforestation illegal deforestation. So the have the forest code, which I mentioned earlier. Which requires them to protect the streams on their properties in not deforest a minimum of vegetation. And most of them say that they respect that low. They just want to see it implemented. But the backside of that law is that it does allow deforestation. So for instance, if you are in the south of Brazil, and the limit is, for instance, twenty percent v Lyon has to be protected if you have forty percent that's forest. You can do farce out of the twenty percent. So farmers in Brazil champion, this low that they have to protect the environment. But the other side of that is that the law does actually allow a little bit of deforestation, and there's a lot of ways of sort of bending it. And if you don't have very strict supervision. Yes, very hard to sort of catch them. So I'm the boss, and our farmers are hoping that they'll get an easing of these restrictions, and they believe that if Bolsonaro can get these regulatory agencies off their backs they'll be able to do that easier with fewer fines, also if the environmental ministry is subordinated to the agriculture ministry. They believe they'll be able to get other things such as Ben sector science and other things approved more easily the danger of. Course is that if you remove the supervision, the less, ethical, farmers and other sectors of the rural community illegal loggers illegal minors. They will also take their cue, and we could see a massive increase in deforestation of the Amazon outside of Brazil. Is there a risk of consumer backlash? If Boston our eases environmental standards had one of the big risks for Brazilian agriculture. And this is why when we talk about busy Negra Celtic went up talking about a uniform group of people. So the ones who are very excited about a chance of illegally deforesting, probably smaller pharma's or less ethical operators on the frontiers of farmlands of Brazil, but the larger operators larger farmers the trading company's value these environmental protections because this allows them to sell Brazilian soya bean and Brassinne vif with some level of stamp of approval in terms of the environment. If they lose that that could be very damaging for Brazilian sales in developed countries, especially of beef. It's already big problem to trace. Products coming out of Brazil, especially mates, but also soy. And if you suddenly start to have a lot of deforestation that's gonna really cloud the Brazilian brand. The other thing that's bad for Brazil in general is I've a recent years it's actually developed a very good image in terms of its efforts to protect the environment. If it suddenly a gets the image of deforestation and the things that come with deforestation which include land conflict murder confiscation of lands from Indians genocide of Indian tribes. This is not a good thing for the Brazilian image. And it's not really good for busy and businesses. Well, that's a rather grim picture. But on a more hopeful note, Joe you've written about project to map the DNA sequences of species that are in the Amazon river basin. What are the aims of this project who are its backers? Yeah. This is a project that's being coordinated by the World Economic Forum and a Peruvian entrepreneur Fuan Carlos Castillo, Hugo and the I'm of it is to map all the biological assets of the Amazon and Cody. Defy rights of usage for industry and research is in blockchain to dual of this by twenty twenty and the idea is to try to capture it the intellectual property that's imbedded in the Amazon and try to use that commercially. But the key thing here is that the proceeds of this use should go back to the communities that live in the Amazon, the traditional communities conservation funds, and the governments that are actually in the Amazon and the way that they want to do that is that using blockchain and special contracts that will be able to trace the usage of this information around the world, and those who use it once I have proceeds once they make profit from this information will have to pay it back in some form. So it's an extremely ambitious project. A lot of scientists around the world, and it's a feel like an extension of the human genome project in the sense, it's extending that to the rest of the species on the planet. So it's a Ray of hope to them as on if it can be implemented. Wow. So how much will it cost, and is it likely to make a lot of? Money in the long term. I mean when you talk about using the block chain to return profits to local communities is this potentially a profitable enterprise in the long run. Yes. Well, let's see to go. If the costs the human genome project apparently costs four point eight billion dollars and generated sixty five dollars for the US economy for every public all of that was invested and this project the entire project that includes Amazon, which call the earth by genome project is expected to cost four point seven be into complete. And if we go by past products that have been developed out of Amazon organic material we can see that they are huge profits to be made especially in pharmaceuticals. But there are also other ways of using intellectual property that's embedded in the Amazon. If you like, for instance, there's interests to studying the traffic patterns of soldier ants to try to develop autonomous vehicles, and there are other processes in the zone that are being studied that can be used for the people think can be developed as technology. So the backers of the project cited. Proceeds could be billions of dollars in the long run. But it's just a matter of actually implementing it and seeing if it works. It's all very new that sounds like a really fascinating initiative, but all this is happening quite late in the day for the world's rainforests. Do you think there's enough time to see results and could something like this set of precedent for efforts to save forests? Elsewhere hit I think this time there's still time. Brazil has deforested twenty percent of them online for us, which is you know, when you think about the other bombs in Brazil such as the Atlantic forest. It's not much Atlantic us as almost being wiped out. So the Amazon is still there to be protected. I think it depends a lot of global pressure on Brazil as well as pressure from within Brazil. There's a lot of support within Brazil to save Amazon. So it depends a lot on people mobilizing to make sure that those unethical sectors of agriculture mining and logging and not
