Modern and fast APIs with FastAPI

"There. Obviously, it's all about consuming API's these days API's are everywhere in a Zappia in there like we integrate with you know however many thousand different. Api In points that you might WanNa work with and IT'S It's all pretty crazy but of course, creating API's is super important. So focusing on that side, how have you seen the evolution of API frameworks come not because the early days that I spoke of it was like things were web frameworks, and then if you wanted, you could somehow manage to put a Web Api in it. Yeah. Absolutely. Excited I. think that's the key difference I think that's The difference. Yeah because yeah. So for example, this framework is basically I don't know I would think it was something like Api I mean obviously, it's in the name, but there's a bunch of them like that these days that are coming out words, the building blocks talk in terms of API's not in terms of web templates and whatnot. Yeah, exactly. So like I guess for a very long time, the more established frameworks inviting specifically have been flask and Jangle. For at the is it will be in Jangly will be JANGLED WRIST FRAMEWORK They're bunch of plug. INS that can be combined together to make something that works very well. The same with general framework visiting is, as you were saying, these frameworks were made mainly to handle templates in the back. So they accept the extra functionality was on dope around the ways that the I was able to do things. So as you were saying like the, there was this bunch of extra frameworks that came afterwards like even of the same thing sort of and they know the a sink wave game with a bunch of all their frameworks past the I, ended up later end up last wave I guess but it was mainly from the learnings of all these reviews. Frames I was using a bunch of those fingers for a long time. A bunch of floggings have combinations trying Wednesday in friend dealer. I had like something that was kind of stable, but it's very difficult to maintain quite fragile. Yeah. You said that you didn't really want to build fast. API finally decided alright. Yeah. I. Need the thing I went to exist so here we go. Yeah I, like the Nemov Hey I build another framework is heaven like every Waco's. And I was trying really hard to avoid that and I was like, no I just find the thing that I'm looking forward on finding. That will do that if we should not that I need and at some point when I was like, yeah, I'm not finding the right thing I found it and it was eight. The I star wasn't thing right atheist our framework build by dungarees. The great guy is in creator of the Framework Yeah exactly successor Django risk framework but from scratch exactly exactly and there's Aba Star Nafta Star was trying to be compatible with. An aggregate sold like the Canonical Standard Specification or interface for web frameworks, which is wealth flask untangle air based on and at the same thing with Ascii, which was the new standard that was also born at Jangle for do wet sockets these asynchronous saints right it's probably maybe we're just pointing out to people who are not deep in the web hosting side like Whiskey is this common API that all the different web frameworks, blast gender and? So, on talk to or implement, and then all the web servers like microwave Guizhou Unicorn. So on know how to talk to anything that does whiskey, and that's how you can run other frameworks on these various web servers. But none of those were capable of supporting ase, INC programming, which is super important for scale ability on the server side because the way that thing was written is incompatible with that, and so there's a new standard I think. Maybe Thomas. Even partially involved in like the finding the standard. Sure but. A SGI FOR ASE INC gateway interface and that's the GI that you're talking about right. So Api star is trying to do both of those things. Yeah. Exactly and complementing or were you were saying like these specifications of how to interact with the server on the on the framework I like totally like quite simple is mainly of one page jobs as like there has to be a function that is going to be cold with these armadillos and is basically that, but then they finding what the shape. Of that function, what are the parameters that is going to save old? That is like the main of interaction between a server like UNICORNS and a framework like flask. So these new Disney will these new standard as he is the one that support for acing weight and all these things and I was trying to have support for both things wild being an API, I framework and having like a bunch of extra features. The Dump Christie added on it was great. I was just trying to have some. Indication ideas to able to integrate them with Aba I themes, and at that point. He was also building starlet, which is the microphone more slash toolkit for building a B. is in asking these new feeling like wave applications of doing whip stuff using these new data. So he's like the bare bones thing is kind of in the middle of flask on a lower level. It will kind of the same things and because he was focusing on that, he had to deprecate most of the Aba Star components like the server components and made it just like. Ceased him on a set of tools to validate scheme us for API's right. Now that point I had found the perfect tool and it had to be deprecated. So I guess. Cute. Like okay. Let's try this. At the same you know that is

What's In A Scientific Name

"From loon example of a trial by in Hunan China called Hans Solo to a butterfly Pea flour reminiscent of Georgia. Oh painting called Couture Couturier Turn Tia. The naming of species offers almost as much in the way of entertainment as it does scientific classification. The official rules for naming species set down by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature are surprisingly simple. The name must be spelled with the Latin alphabet and must not be overtly offensive and that's pretty much it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Most of US know that the animals we call by single name such as a horse actually had a two part name in that case equis Columbus. In contrast to astronomical bodies like stars, Asteroids and planets which are under strict naming conventions overseen by committees, there's almost unfettered freedom it comes to zoological nomenclature. The name can even be on sense string of arbitrary letters. While there is a wealth of name fascination to report on from plants to drugs to telescopes. Ourselves today to the Animal Kingdom. For as long as we have had records and probably longer mankind has sought to classify the world around us in an effort to begin to understand it. This is called taxonomy the study of the general principles of scientific classification from the Greek words for order or arrangement and science. Three centuries before the common era aristotle grouped animals I by similarities like where they lived and then hierarchically with humans naturally at the top. Not, every animal fit well into this system though ducks posed a particular problem as they had the bothersome habit of living on water on land and spending time in the air. It would be eighteen hundred years before another natural philosopher as scientists were called, then would try their hand such as Andrei sessile, Pino Italian physician, and botanist who sorted plants by the structure of their fruits and seeds. The first scientist to use a binomial or to name system that we would recognize was Swiss botanist guest sparred Boeing. Some six thousand plants by genus and species in sixteen, twenty three. There were several inconsistent and sometimes conflicting systems of classification already in use when Carolina's wrote his. SYSTEMA naturally in seventeen, thirty five. Laying down the system we use to this day. Lena's was first taxonomic east to list humans as a primate, but he also originally classified whales as. All living things were sorted into them, Feilim class order, family, genus, and species. Many of US memorized that in middle school by way of a new monarch like King Philip came over from great Spain. Housecat for example, is kingdom and Amelia filed them cor data meaning it has spinal cord. Class Mammalia order can Adora family feel a day genus fearless and species cactus. A lion diverges at the genus Pan Terra, which awesomely means reaper of all and species. Leo. So the scientific name for Lion Is Penn Tara Leo. This system can be visualized as an enormous branching tree with its trunk, very broad and its branches increasingly specific. We. Still name some animals in accordance with their appearance with a little poetic license thrown in for good measure. The tiniest and most pastelle of the armored mammals was christened the pink fairy armadillo. A. Hand Size Lizard with a gift from a meese camouflage was given the fairly metal moniker satanic leaf tailed Gecko. It's actual religious beliefs remain a mystery. As advertised, the star nosed mole has a burst of delicate sensory tendrils on the tip of its snout. Also, sacks myuka Flores is an unappealing worm who lives off the bones of dead whales which would explain its name bone eating snot flower. A bacterium that was taken to the International Space Station, and exposed to cosmic radiation earned the Latin moniker for traveler of the void. China boasts a salamander species that can grow to a whopping one point. Eight meters were nearly six feet long. It goes by the name. Hell Bender and this reporter for one will not argue with it.

Why South Asia's COVID-19 numbers are so low

"States is approaching five million covert 19 infections. We've passed 160,000 deaths. This virus has paralyzed the richest, most powerful country in the world. And we know this was preventable because at the same time and parts of the developing world countries with far fewer resource is have kept infection and death rates remarkably low. Rhonda's carried out nearly 180,000 tests. Since the start of the pandemic, Erica has applied a combination of mandatory social distancing. A strict lock down and wide scale testing. It's a strategy. We can learn a lot from these apparent success stories this week. We're taking a closer look at Southeast Asia along the Mekong River. As of this recording, five countries with a combined population of 243 million people have had fewer than 5000 cases of covert 19 and 72 deaths. The water Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar doing that the rest of the world finds itself unable to do in controlling this virus. Well, I think if we knew that answer for certain there would be epidemiologists and government officials from all over the world lined up on the door, trying to figure out the secret. That's Hannah Beach. She's Southeast Asia bureau chief for The New York Times. Race wars reached her at her home in Bangkok. And she says, there isn't just one reason that these countries have been so successful. I don't think there's anyone magic bullet, but there is kind of constellation of things that countries Thailand has done, which would seem right. First of all people started wearing masks very early, even when the W H O is dissuading people from doing so. Second of all, it's not really a touchy culture when people greet each other. They do what's called a Y, which is when you put your hands together like you're like you're in a prayer like motion. Sort of all hospitals are good health care's not prohibitive. You know, one of the things that people have been looking at that that it might be some sort of Innate resistance that has been built up, particularly in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam to the current virus. One of the theories that the people in Thailand are looking at is the way in which the novel Coronavirus Cove in 19 evolved. And it started off most likely in bats on DH. Then it went from bad to some sort of intermediary mammal, and then from that mammal to humans, there is there is some speculation, looking both that kind of the genetic origins of the current virus, but also looking at something animals that were at the wet market. In Wuhan, where the outbreak seems to have proliferated that the animal that was thie kind of intermediary animal between bats and humans might have been an animal that was indigenous to this part of Southeast Asia. And that it might have been a pangolin which looks like a kind of like an artichoke cross. Listen, armadillo. If it came from this animal, there is the possibility that something a precursor even this novel, coronavirus had been sort of floating around. In the ecosystem in this region for a long time, and that could potentially explain some sort of resistance that had been built up within the local populations here. And if you look at, for instance, in in southwestern China, which is very close to this region in the number of cases of Corona virus were very, very low. Compared to a place like Wuhan. So again, you know is this is this magic bullet That explains everything We don't know. But it's certainly a factor. That is that seemed interesting. That is interesting. Will you live in the region? You cover the region as you watch these numbers and as you watch the toll in the rest of the world Are you at all suspicious? Do you think these numbers of credible all of these places whether it's Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar If the numbers were so cooked if there were bodies lined up at the morgues. If there were mass graves, we would know there is social media. People talk, people whisper, and we would we would have an idea. S O. I think that's I don't think it's fair to say that the numbers are simply made up. I'm in Thailand right now has fewer than I think 3500 cases. Vietnam, which has had an uptick has fewer than 800 cases. This. Maybe it's off by a couple 100. Maybe if given off by a couple 1000 But if there were bodies at the hospital's piling up from a mysterious respiratory disease, we would know you've spent the duration of the pandemic in Thailand. Let's go back to those first weeks. In January, Thailand confirmed what was believed to be the first confirmed case outside of China. Around the same time the U. S experienced its first case is well. What happened in those earliest weeks? Well, it was interesting that this this first case Thailand has a very good kind of geological service, and in mid January, they confirmed that the Chinese tourists coming from Wuhan, China, which is where the outbreaks believed to have started Had had flown to Bangkok for holiday, which millions of Chinese do every year Bank office in fact, one of the world's most visited cities, and it's one the most visited by Chinese. And at that point, people in Thailand became nervous because there was a mysterious disease up north in China, and there were a lot of Chinese tourists arriving and one thing that didn't happen and we can kind of look back at this. And obviously it's hard to say we know we knew that this is going to be The deadly epidemic that it's become. But in the beginning flights weren't stopped two flights captain arriving from from Wuhan from China, and yes, there were efforts to try to much temperatures of people came in, but there wasn't really that much that was done. Fast forward a few weeks people of their own accord with with government advice started wearing masks and you know there's there's no no sense in Thailand that That wearing a mask is anything but good for public health. There was no there was no no sense that that was somehow infringing upon their individual liberties you've experienced since you there with the ties. Six weeks of pretty strict national locked down. Is it getting any easier now? What's day to day? Life like in Thailand? Now, can you send your kids to school? Can you eat a restaurant? Can you go into stores? You know, I talked to friends back in the states and I feel a little bit guilty because we started our lock down in March and then in Early April. Essentially all international flights stopped. Commercial flights stopped. And so we've been sort of under lock down for months. But beginning in June, the lock down started easing. So all the restaurants all the bars, all the massage parlors, all the all the kind of normal establishments, businesses have slowly been opening up. And now my life is pretty normal. Yes, I still wear a mask everywhere. My kids wear masks everywhere. But schools high schools are back in session on their social distancing. Now they have school kids have school every other week. They wear the masks. They have plastic dividers and things. But there's commerce on DH. There's there's kinda semblance of normalcy, which again makes me feel a little bit that when I speak to people in the U. S, because that's very different from From what? What Americans experiences. You know, we've gone more than almost three months without a case of of local transmission, which is remarkable their cases. Every day, but they're all in people who are coming back from ties were coming back from overseas, whether it's the United States or Europe or the Middle East since that strictest version of the lock down ended Did the economy bounced back is AH are some of the worst effects economically of the lock down starting to ease Because people are spending money again, People are making money again. That's the real tragedy of of Thailand. Thailand did a very good job of controlling the virus and making sure that it hasn't spread. But economists absolutely devastated and the reason is devastated. It's because it's a very tourism reliant economy anywhere. Between 20 and 30% of GDP comes from from tourism, and they're no tourists coming in. So you can. If you want to come on a beach holiday to Thailand, you can't do that right now. So that means that anybody who was a tour guide, our hotel operator restaurant operator. Millions of people have been put out of work. And so the Thai government's really kind of facing a difficult decision right now, which is you can open up. But then if you open up and try to save the economy, you might be also allowing the virus to come in and assistant. It's an issue that Many economies and in many countries are dealing with. But given the success the Thailand has had and being able to control the virus, you know, it makes it that much more. On fraud to even consider bringing people back in and

How Do Roly-Poly Bugs Work?

"Potato boats pillbox doodlebug, really police. They looked like a gray shrimp crossed an Armadillo and they seem to have a different name everywhere. They're found though the scientific name for these armor-plated little creatures is armed lithium vulgarity. With twelve known varieties of roly-poly bugs found in the United States alone these tiny crustaceans inhabit the northern and central parts of the country as well as many dark damp places across the world, and yes, they aren't insects, but crustaceans like crab lobster. They're the only stations that have adapted to living completely on land, though like their other station cousins, they breathe through Gills, so they have to keep to areas with plenty of rain or groundwater, and even then prefer damp spaces where the sun can't dry them out. And while you may not love having a cool dozen of these little critters popout when you move a flowerpot Cheka crawlspace. They don't bite staying or carry disease, and there is a very real benefit to having them in your backyard garden. It all starts with the microbes within the confines of the Raleigh Police Innards these microscopic gut, flora and fauna help really police breakdown dead organic matter. Raleigh police. Are Detroit devore's meaning? They get their nutrients by eating stuff that other plants and animals leave behind decomposing plants that animals and poop. Scientists have shown the benefits of the Raleigh. Police Diet on soil. They positively affect the ecosystem that they're in by increasing the mineral content of the soil, essentially turning the waste, they eat into healthy soil. But, it's not just what roly-poly bugs add to the soil. It's what they take out to. It turns out that these guys don't mind heavy metals. After studying the composition of their insides, scientists found that roly-poly bugs can crystallize stuff like lead, cadmium and arsenic in their guts, both preventing these toxic materials from harming themselves and taking them out of the environment. Meaning a construction site contaminated with heavy metals could effectively be cleaned by a bunch of hungry roly-poly bugs. Raleigh police will eat tender plant shoots if there is nothing else available, but it's not their preferred diet, and these bugs will also eat the eggs of some insects that are more inclined to gardens and crops, so they could be a great form of pest control and are sometimes used organic farming. So if you're noticing roly-poly, party taking place in your backyard. Don't worry. These little guys are doing a lot of the heavy lifting involved in creating the healthy soil that will help your garden Thri.

Pangolins Are Suspected as a Potential Coronavirus Host

"They're saying is the hand Golden which is this in danger hi evenly though traffic kind of creature looks kind of like an an eater and an armadillo that's it does it'll if you looked it up and you look up handle and that's what this got the scales and the scales are apparently prized in traditional Chinese medicine because they're made of keratin just like your fingertips so researchers have said the coronavirus previously identified and is more closely related to this corona virus than any other virus so it's not clear where they where they live with a dead were they on sale on December at the seafood wholesale market yeah X. were half the people first identify the virus were shopping how did this is that were that viral losing happened because ultimately the task is to trace it and figure out where it started you know what about the host and how are they capable of transmitting the inspections they can't stop the spread of the virus so they have to know clearly where that came from and that's this is the belief that that that's the deal if the virus is not sufficiently contained because it's that contagious dead of course becomes a global pandemic if it's not contained so unclear do not miss labeling that unclear whether the virus can be transmitted by infected people before they show symptoms yeah hi thanks it's crazy and they say that this that I described to you this this some animal I guess I'll call the animal is it is an animal is is like unlike a cousin they say it's a common ancestor of like the back that mutated involved and that's how you get the that's how you get that animal and that's what is believed to be what is carrying the a bowl of icing then you remember HIV from him pansies a bola and more bird from bats mayors from camels swine flu and avian flu where they came from and fats make up about a fifth of all the mammal species and there were basically reservoirs of viruses that can potentially infect humans so that's what they're looking at why did it take until December of twenty nineteen and you have people being around that's for ever eating bats behind them in markets we don't think of that in the U. S. really but in China absolutely but is there are no legal animal trade that's with the other discussion is is is the black market thing have they destroyed the evidence probably if that's the case I would imagine course they would have they would have done it and how jacked up is that seeing the acceleration of this thing the answer to the question is a very very very very very because this is the kind of species that they can they can that you know they latch onto a host they latch on to a person and that's how they can hopscotch and transmitted to other people and and trans we had a transmit to other people as the host and then go on and spread it from from there and that's why you're seeing how widespread death this is an Kennett trigger you know more serious diseases and of course those are all the questions that are hovering around out there

"What they're saying is the hand Golden which is this in danger hi really though traffic kind of creature looks kind of like an an eater and an armadillo yes it does it'll if you looked it up and you look up handle and that's what it's got the scales and the scales are apparently prized in traditional Chinese medicine because they're made of keratin just like your fingertips so researchers have said the coronavirus previously identified this is more closely related to this coronavirus than any other virus so it's not clear where they where they live with a dead were they on sale on December at the seafood wholesale market yeah X. were half the people first identify the virus were shopping how did this is that were that viral losing happened because ultimately the task is to trace it and figure out where it started you know what about the host and how are they capable of transmitting the infection they can't stop the spread of the virus so they have to know clearly where that came from and that's this is the belief that that that's the deal if the virus is not sufficiently contained because it's that contagious then of course becomes a global pandemic if it's not contained so unclear they're not mislabeling that unclear whether the virus can be transmitted by infected people before they show symptoms yeah I think it's crazy and they say that this that I described to you this this some animal I guess I'll call the animal is it is an animal is is like a like a cousin they say it's a common ancestor of like the bat that mutated involved and that's how you get the that's how you get that animal and that's what is believed to be what is carrying the a bowl of ours and you remember HIV from him pansies a bola and more Berg from bats mayors from camels swine flu and avian flu where they came from and bats make up about a fifth of all the mammal species and they're basically reservoirs of viruses that can potentially infect humans so that's what they're looking at why did it take until December of twenty nineteen and you have people being around that's for ever eating bats behind them and markets we don't think of that in the U. S. really but in China absolutely but is there are no legal animal trade that's with the other discussion is is is the black market thing have they destroyed the evidence probably if that's the case I would imagine course they would have they would have done it

Animal Mothers

"A person could easily fill hours of airtime talking about bizarre mating habits of animals from the white spotted pufferfish that draws intricate patterns in the Sandy Ocean floor to attract a mate to the spotted hyena females. WHOSE PSEUDO PENIS which is sometimes larger than the males actual penis is also their birth canal note? Today we're going to focus on the latter two thirds of the process just station or incubation and firth even limiting the topic. There's still a lot. I won't don't get to like how certain reptiles determine the sex of their offspring with the exact temperature in their nests. The station period of animals animals is a matter of scale. The larger an animal is the longer it takes to make a new one despite the resources of the mother being large as well if all the dimensions Shinzo a given animal were doubled. That animal would now have eight times the fall you owing to the square cube rule and hence eight times the wheat of before four but the thickness of the umbilical cord through which all of the growth nutrients flow will only be four times as large so all else being equal it. It would take twice as long for the necessary nutrients to go through if you WANNA get super math nerdy about it and you're welcome to the volume and therefore wait of an animal is proportionate to the cube of the scale Cisco is proportionate to the cube root of the weight of the animal. I read it but I don't understand it. We can scale back on the maths a bit by looking at examples. Humans have station period forty weeks one week short of nine months while humans best friend has the station period of two months. For small animals like rabbits. The period is about one month and for mice about three weeks. The metal for shortest shortest station of a North American mammal goes to the possum which finishes pregnancy soup to nuts in under two weeks. This may have less to do with their size than the fact that their average life span is only about three years so replacements are needed constantly. Elephants are pregnant for a long time like really really long ninety five weeks in fact almost two years. This marathon baby building is one reason that female elephants elephants usually don't have more than four cavs in their whole lifetime. Who's got the time? A giraffe needs almost fifteen months to form. It's one hundred fifty pound founder. Sixty eight kilo baby which starts life off with a bang draft skipworth standing up so it is during air for babies to fall six feet or or two meters to the ground in the process of being worn there are exceptions to are easy to follow. Big babies means long pregnancy guidelines. Of course I one hundred injured and ten pound or fifty kilo. Hippo is ready to debut and only eight months even faster than a seven pound human baby. Black bears are pregnant for thirty weeks but they're cubs only weigh about one pound or half a kilo. One thing that this list of station periods can't take into account are pregnant pauses causes by which I mean pausing pregnancies. That's right some animals have the ability to say you know what now is not a super great time for let me to have babies. Let me just hold the embryo. And Its tracks and turn my uterus into Sifi stasis chamber while I wait for conditions to improve since it was discovered discovered in the eighteen fifties more than one hundred and thirty species of mammal have been found to have this ability. The pause called Dia pause conveniently can last anywhere between a couple of days and up to a year in most species. This happens when the embryo is still a tiny ball of less than one hundred cells. Does that has yet to attached to the uterus. Pausing pregnancy isn't the sole domain of any one class or family. It's found in certain kinds of bats bears Seals rodents deers and armadillos among others. More than a third of the species that take either during the station are found from the capital of strange nature. Australia of the twenty or so species of kangaroo and Wallaby combined there are only three that can't pas a pregnancy Mitzi in fact it's the Timbre Wallaby that can put embryos on hold for up to eleven months. There were few mechanisms at work here. Some animals most made right after giving birth. It's like a backup plan in case something happens to the newborn if nothing bad happens in. The newborn is nursing the physical taxation of lactation lactation stalls the understudy fetus once the extant offspring is weaned. The fetus begins developing again. The second way is to pause every pregnancy until the time is right usually to do with the weather for example minks mate around the start of March but put the embryos on pause until after the spring spring equinoxes when the days are getting longer in the northern hemisphere this ensures that the young are born in spring when food will be more plentiful than the temperatures more mild. Some are bitterest animals will pause pregnancies in times of drought hoping that the rain will come back to get plant life growing again. The TAMRA wallaby combines these two methods to ensure that the Joey is ready to leave the pouch in spring rather than the middle of a Hot Australian Summer Dia Pause was first identified in eighteen fifty. I four after hunters in Europe. Notice that pregnancy in Rodier seem to last a lot longer than in other types of deer since then scientists have been fascinated by this process. And it's helped us understand more about basic reproductive processes in all mammals but how the process worked at the molecular level is still a mystery mystery until recently there seemed to be no connection between which speech these use it in which didn't and there didn't seem to be a unifying mechanism for how the pregnancy was caused. Even the hormones controlling dia paws are different between Mammal groups researchers in Poland were able to pause embryos in a sheep a non dipoto species by transferring them into a mouse uterus and then back into the sheep with no apparent ill effects this indicates. It's the potential for Dia. Pause could lie in mammals including humans but I would still take my birth control pill you would. Experiments would die. Applause could do you for us is to improve our understanding of how to make and select healthy embryos for in vitro fertilization as well as to create better stem cells that could be used the target cancers the first stem cells ever isolated by scientists came from a mouse embryo in diapers whether or not the pregnancy. Let's see was paused. Once the baby or babies come out they need to eat and for mammal babies. That means milk. A mother's milk contains a concoction of nutrients France fats proteins and carbohydrates that are essential for a baby's development as well as a cocktail of protective factors to effectively supply the baby with immune hyun system until it can develop its own all mammals produce milk but they don't all produce the same milk to give you a baseline for comparison before I start start throwing out numbers cow. Milk is about three and a half percent protein and five percent carbs while human milk is about one percent protein and seven percent and carbs and both are about eight percent water. You won't find much water. In the milk of the hooded seal. Their milk is more than sixty percent. Fat Thatch more like a premium milkshake than milk. This high fat milk is crucial for the seal pups born into the freezing waters of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. It's the PUPS also only nurse for about four days having been born on floating ice an environment that is both unstable and unreliable. So the seal Momma needs to pack a lot of energy dense fat into her milk. The pups consume over sixteen pounds or seven kilograms of milk every day. Their Body weight doubles in the first week of life. Conversely in the savannahs of Africa the Black Rhino has the skim milk going only about point the two percent fat they also nursed for almost two years which is only possible within milk given how many resources lactation demands

"We'll get oh boy dave. How many beers have you tried so far just this here well? You know I haven't been any festival so that's really you know dampen now what I've done but I'd say between the daily beer reviews. Just you know my day drinking stealing beers from other people when they're not looking around three hundred. Is that Elvis who ooh. Let's not bad I mean that's the only half how about some some of the rescue. What's what's your number just for the year? Yeah it's probably be about three hundred. I probably do about five hundred a year. But of course I can drink mobile and you come on now. How would say that I drink a couple of two three hundred a year? Maybe this year maybe a little ahead of the curve because of been to a few extra festivals but yeah seems to be average here for me. I'm not so sure what it is this year but I'm looking at archive in terms of beers that that I have and divided it by the years I have been archiving beers and so on average per year three hundred and forty nine as wow calculator for that is like yeah brought in the math. He's he's got the slide one ounce officer true true but a lot aren't confessed to the vast majority of the beers that I have are probably probably less than four ounces on average. I view spews yeah. There's the power of the drain. Spit takes probably on average two to three thousand every year. That's if between industry tastings beers. There's that get sent to us. sometimes you know more than once yeah the Armadillo beer not going to happen not gonNA make the show more years. Here's the great American Beer Festival. I mean you're going to drink a few hundred. Yes definitely when we've been to things like that that have you know probably fifteen hundred beers alone. You know at that that we're probably hammered down but I don't know. Would you say that tasting more beers actually do you like that better or would you rather just have like a hundred really good beers. You know every year I'd like to do both both is that you had to go. We have three hundred good beers through the bad ones to know the good good ones that you'd like to stay exactly right. I mean there's beers you. You know you try when you're going out to place and there's beers like if you go festival and then there's beers at a tasting bottle share air but then there's just like beers when you're sitting around having dinner or you know mowing the yard or whatever you know waking up first thing in the morning you know get ready to go. Oh wait never mind and then there's the beers that are available to you on Friday afternoon after you bought your lottery ticket in the refrigerator there behind the counter no just kidding well. It's football season in my beer actually increases with each week so consumption cause very good. It's it's fabulous drowning of sorrow thinner. Today is the day of hope. It's the first game match well. Let's definitely add to those totals today. Good Will Kendall. I'd like for you to read our son's ratings for our audience today. We'll be discussing in writing these beers with the suds ratings plus plus. Our signature belching sounds here those ratings now one that sucks Gimme anything about too do was that about three or four Abbadi should really not make that sound and five listen to that time Gimme another war well done all right thanks Kendall. I appreciate you reading surgery today. So this is a blind tasting so like I said each host has brought one or in the case of kindle is brought to beers and we're just GONNA GONNA go around and for each host and we're going to talk a little bit about that beer what it tastes like and then we'll rate it and then we'll tell you a little bit about that beer as well so hang tough with us through this I think find it rather informative by the way we do this an awful lot and so we really enjoy a tasting like this to do yeah. It's a lot of fun yeah all right kindle. What's happening in my currently beer number wine? Let's see here number one. My the first impression was it was kind of multi and hoppy that was tastes which makes it's a family only hoppy definitely yeah. I know you're a Sierra Nevada free so it's a good malt cascade came out of California. -FORNIA is yes yeah but it is not Nevada. Okay we as a Sierra Nevada shirt on being in front of me to throw us off. Every spare thing about kindle is a swerve is a firestone Walker. Oh Oh I'm GonNa say this is from the Lago Nita's family wow yes oh I know close log Anina serve drinking beer so is this little something it is not like a description sure hit a slips rated. Did I okay okay. I'm sorry anymore comments. I lots of comments but not about this subject suck. I wasn't ready fallacy. Let's let's figure out a rating severe here. I give it a four so so four it is here for kindles first beer. Somebody shake GRANDPA. He's sleeping again. This is a kind of a classic west coast. Ip and the reason I picked this.

"armadillo" Discussed on Circle Round

"Armadillo wished his shell could protect him from teasing using as well as it protected them from predators but no such luck so most of the time armadillo stayed in his borough snoozing away <music> then once each morning and once each evening he'd get up and drag his shell out of his borough to who eat. Why do i feel like having some juicy beatles. Perhaps a colony of ants. Oh i know how oh 'bout some tasty termites but in armadillos mind the best part about foraging wasn't the food it was the music he heard while looking for that food oh yeah they're whistling and trilling of the parrots is especially beautiful today. Oh oh and that crickets how do they are generally. Oh it come to frogs croaking back and forth back and forth talk about a tight rhythm section you see more than anything else in the world armadillo logged music and more than anything else in the world. He longed to be on musician. Oh what what i wouldn't give to be able to saying if only i knew how armadillos yearning grew and grew then one day he had an idea. I know what if i ask the other animals to teach me how to sing. They'll probably be so flattered that i asked so the next time armadillo went out hunting for food. He paused beneath the palm trees where the parents were whistling sling and drilling a hello. Excuse me parrots parrots. Yeah i know okay. I have a quick question for you. The parrots seized their singing and peer down at armadillo. Yes what what is it let allama hasan well for a long time. Now i've been it's meiring you're whistling drilling and it's so very beautiful so i have to ask a. Can you teach me how to sing like you. The parrots exchanged exchanged a look. Teach us how to saying. Surely you must be joking. Everyone yeah no billows can't sing. Maybe you can find someone to play your shell like drama. They haven't very nice os just asking a simple question. It's okay. I'll ask the crickets. They're there chirping so wonderfully chantel. There are bound to be more friendly so armadillo scuttled over to a patch of ferns. That's where the crickets chirping away. Hey hi there had crickets how you doing. I'm the. I'm sorry to bother you but i have a quick question for you. The crickets stopped chirping and stared at armadillo <hes>. Let's up little mood one. Can you guys for longtime now. I've been enjoying you chirping. It's so <hes> lively in sweden and i have to ask i mean. Can you teach me how to sing like you. The crickets widened. There is teach you how to sing. You got to be kidding. A well known fact that armadillos can't saying long. Maybe you should find someone to play your shell like a marimba back so much for journal downright route but i'm not giving up. I'll go ask the franc's maybe.

The Illegal Business of Smuggling Animals

"Smuggling illegally taking things into or out of a country. We hear stories about smuggling all the time smuggling drugs cash weapons diamonds. But one of the biggest categories of items smuggled is a little bit more exotic so to speak animals earlier this year, a suitcase was intercepted in the Philippines that contain fifteen hundred little turtles that had been smuggled in from China. They're estimated worth nearly ninety thousand dollars. Were they ninja turtles? No not. That was reported but I don't know. They were wrapped in duct tape in, like stuffed in shoes and stuff. They're so cute. They were like little, little guys, like the size of a hockey puck and also a man was caught smuggling seventy live birds through JFK in hair rollers and just a few weeks ago. There was this big bust in the Philippines. A man was caught trying to smuggle seven hundred and fifty tarantulas estimated value around six thousand dollars in a box of cook. Ke's by the way, I'm not gonna eat cookies now. Right spider cooking opening a box. Scrawl scout cookies tarantulas Papa that he's not a thing you can get over. This is indicated from planet money. I'm garcia.

So how do you feel about spiders? I feel great. I only ask, because I feel like I have mixed feelings about spiders, might looking at them in the wrong way, people feel that an Arthur, bud life being an insect life or spider life isn't as valuable. So you don't appreciate its right to live as much, but I don't think cuddling sore Fluck Innis should be a criteria for conservation. What do you do? When you see a spider in your apartment recently, I found in my bedroom. I give it a drink at a little bowl of water for it. Yes, I did. I. Dehydrated. So she was very happy. And she was a female. She was very happy to drink from it. I thought about, you know, should I find insect and give it food, but it looked well, put outside and bent on its way. And I think it's doing well now how do you recognize when spidery dehydrates training for an upcoming fight or something like that? And it's like, hey, Waterberg water break and being a spider insurgence apartment is good fighter less good. We wanted to talk to Sergio about the cookie Bach seizure. The seven hundred and fifty tarantulas, which were worth apparently six thousand dollars. Is this something that happens, like, people sm- like that many people want spiders, as pets, and, and we know this happens like daily not only with spiders, though, no scorpions as well? Centipedes beetles, but you're flies of the whole range of animals. That people if there's an interest in buying them people will find a way to get them for me like business as usual. Yeah. How big is this market is at, like multi million dollars a year? Yes worldwide. Yes. Definitely into the multi millions. I mean valuable specimens can easily go into thousands. So a seizure of a few that's twenty tarantulas you be conceived, spiders, that values already thousands of dollars. It is committed that the animal smuggling market is worth about twenty million dollars a year call that today's planet money, indicator twenty million dollars or twenty million dollars. We don't really know because animal smuggling is illegal Sergio says animal smuggling has grown astronomically in recent years for couple of reasons first, deforestation and development has made even really remote areas, much more accessible to people so species that used to be extremely hard to get to are now far easier to catch second Syria says the internet makes it much easier to sell the animals using everything from Facebook to specialty sites to chat rooms, and to find buyers in all. Places, and it all price ranges. Sergio says one of the most smuggled animals on earth is thought to be abalone. It's a cease nail that lives, mainly off the coast of South Africa is apparently very tasty kind of a gourmet thing. Also, the abalone shell is really beautiful and strong. The abalone is protected, but there's just a huge trade in it. That's why smuggling muggings right Scott so popular smugly market, another, one of the most smuggled animals is the penguin sort of looks like an Armadillo, and it's covered with these big scales that are thought to have magical properties and the pangolin is sort of popular in, like, what would you call it homey ethic met homeopathic medicine. Yeah. And as a result of smuggling the penguin is now endangered when it comes to insects Sergio specialty they are typically caught for a few different reasons sometimes as pets, but there are a lot of other reasons to some people want for splaying. So there been the dried maybe you've seen them. Sometimes I've seen shops. Oh, yeah. Yeah. With the insect displays. Sure. Yeah. Exactly. Some people will kill the spider and put them in a sort of blasting. And then they just have them as a keychain sometime in Asia, they're fried and use snack or as sort of a jurist gimmicky thing where the will take Instagram photo of them eating tarantula ninjas throw the body away. So the animals actually wasted after all those years growing after all those efforts than his just nobody eats, sir. Here says the most popular insects to smuggle tend to have three major characteristics that combination of factors usually being big being colorful, and being rare is like the treat some of the things people look for if it combines all three than yeah. Prices skyrocket. So a lot of butterflies some Beatles, and the emperor scorpion. Yes, it's this big black, scorpion from west Africa. It's the size of your hand. Sergio says people like them as pets because they looked so terrifying. But apparently, according to Sergio, they're pretty gentle little guys, as far as spiders, the red kneed tarantula, which is found in Mexico. Ago is really popular. It's a large tarantula with red and yellow stripes on its legs. And Sergio says the red knee. Tarantula is also now threatened is smuggling partly responsible for them being at risk. Yeah. Definitely. Yeah. Relocate seems it would be such a small dent. You know what I mean something like four station, seems like I could see how that would put us species at risk. But smugly it's gotta be pretty little like a couple hundred spiders. They were only if you hundred I can see how to be fairly sustainable. But the numbers are higher are much higher really talking about few thousand every year. But the things that the spiders were studied, the red news one, they take that case to grow. They grow in a year or even to take decades to become adults even being able to read. So if let's say we harvest out of good colony a healthy colony, and they have a hundred have one hundred specimens spread about this little spider town, you will, and you take off of their numbers. That city that spider colony won't bow back very quickly. And what's the problem? Mm-hmm. With with an insect becoming extinct. Yeah. Well, that's, that's a that is the million dollar question, sort of that is the same question people phrase about all sorts of things going extinct. So if we were to disappear as humans the earth would do pretty well without us actually probably better than it's doing now. Well, if you wear to remove spiders, however, the world, wouldn't last very well, not as we know it, it wouldn't last long at all the number of insects, they every single days, just Astra nominal if that predation exist, and you balance would have to be in number of insects just explode. And then, of course, another predator have to take over and than we'd be filled of that. So you see, so we're messing with this delicate balance, not being completely aware, not aware at all. What on quences will be Sergio says that the animal smuggling trade seems to be getting bigger all the time. So he and his team, try to track the people that they suspect of selling smuggled animals, for example by watching online vendors and they also educate buyers about, where they should get animals and how to avoid buying animals that have been smuggled, but he says, even a lot of pet stores have illegally, harvested animals, because so many people just don't know. The problem we often faces that Esam is in takes hold of most people working in a field. We see too many destruction. Species appearing to quickly and we feel helpless to do anything about it. But as I see it as long as we try really hard. I'm okay with failing really well. So you're trying really hard. Yeah. That's all I can do really if you wanna buy spider really any animal. Sergio says you should ask for the documents that show. It was captive bred. What do you think Cardiff should the or get red knee tarantula to we have a mascot as long as it doesn't come in a box of cookies?

Effects of Thyroid Hormone on Cardiac Function

"Gathered the hearts of offense lizard, a Little Brown bat and naked tailed Armadillo and dozens of others we try to get them from zoo. But I'll fortunate we the student walkout very well. We couldn't get any samples even when dynamo die could get heart developmental biologist at the university of California, San Francisco, he says they had more success obtaining specimens from the jars of natural history, museums, but the reason for this biological scavenger hunt Wong and his colleagues wanted to examine the number of chromosomes contained in heart cells across the animal kingdom, because there's a curious phenomenon in our hearts, which is that most of the human body cells are diploid, meaning two sets of chromosomes one from each parent, but the lion's share of our heart cells are actually Polly -ployed, meaning two or more copies for mom two or more copies from dad. What one and his team found looking at that collection of hearts is that the proportion of Polly played cells in a heart goes up as you go from fish to lizards to him fibia NHS to transitional species like platypuses to mammals, the reason that finding might matter to us is that recent studies in mice, and zebra fish of shown that hearts with more diploid cells, like zebra, fishes are actually able to regenerate and heal themselves. Hearts with more. Polly -ployed sells like mice and humans cannot. So what makes a heart have more Polly played cells and thus less chance of regenerating costume. Oh costume. But one answer once team found is that thyroid hormone, the same hormone that regulates metabolism and makes us warm blooded creatures might be to blame. Because when they added extra thyroid hormone disease officials tanks. They're tiny hearts were no longer able to regenerate. And conversely when they engineered mice to have hearts that were insensitive to thyroid hormone, the mouse hearts could regenerate back after injury heart function, which is mainly measure contracted the of the heart. We can see to heart function improve or would tie off the injury. Welcome to my cannot improve.

Warm-Blooded Animals Lost Ability to Heal the Heart

"This is science Americans. Sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd yada. It sounds like a witch's recipe gathered the hearts of offense lizard, a Little Brown bat and naked tailed Armadillo and dozens of others we try to get them from zoo. But I'll fortunate we the student walkout very well. We couldn't get any samples even when dynamo die could get heart developmental biologist at the university of California, San Francisco, he says they had more success obtaining specimens from the jars of natural history, museums, but the reason for this biological scavenger hunt Wong and his colleagues wanted to examine the number of chromosomes contained in heart cells across the animal kingdom, because there's a curious phenomenon in our hearts, which is that most of the human body cells are diploid, meaning two sets of chromosomes one from each parent, but the lion's share of our heart cells are actually Polly -ployed, meaning two or more copies for mom two or more copies from dad. What one and his team found looking at that collection of hearts is that the proportion of Polly played cells in a heart goes up as you go from fish to lizards to him fibia NHS to transitional species like platypuses to mammals, the reason that finding might matter to us is that recent studies in mice, and zebra fish of shown that hearts with more diploid cells, like zebra, fishes are actually able to regenerate and heal themselves. Hearts with more. Polly -ployed sells like mice and humans cannot. So what makes a heart have more Polly played cells and thus less chance of regenerating costume. Oh costume. But one answer once team found is that thyroid hormone, the same hormone that regulates metabolism and makes us warm blooded creatures might be to blame. Because when they added extra thyroid hormone disease officials tanks. They're tiny hearts were no longer able to regenerate. And conversely when they engineered mice to have hearts that were insensitive to thyroid hormone, the mouse hearts could regenerate back after injury heart function, which is mainly measure contracted the of the heart. We can see to heart function improve or would tie off the injury. Welcome to my cannot improve. The results are in the journal science as for fixing human hearts, perhaps manipulating thyroid hormone levels could be a start.

"Animal endemic to central Argentina. It can be found inhabiting sandy plains dunes and scrubby grassland the pink colour of its show. First of all, you know, the rules, Google pink fairy Armadillo pull ups and picks and check them out while I tell you about it, the pink color of the show comes from its underlying blood vessels which show through the shell. So it's blood. It's the blood and the blood vessels that creates the pale rose or pink, hue that color can actually change depending on the environment in which in which the animals put based on the environmental factors irradiation of blood into the blood vessels can actually increase or decrease in their by lead to change in colour, which is crazy when more blood flows into the show or the carapace the temperature of the creature's body, falls and draining blood out of the show helps the pink fairy Armadillo to retain its body heat. So that's cool. It's like this whole thermal deal beneath the carapace or the shell is silky for which is a yellowish white in color, and you can see some of those pictures now the pink and white combination may sound weird in a desert setting because those colors can attract predators pink fairy Armadillo, however is subterranean barely stays above the ground for a few moments, spins almost all of its time below ground, so pink and white are just fine. The armor of the pink fairy Armadillo has twenty four bands ten bands, twenty bands fifty bands. Fuck man allowing the mammal easily curl up and take the shape of a ball. One. Really interesting pink fairy Armadillo fact, is that at the rear of the animal, it's armers flattened. They've also got small is I mentioned they're silky yellowish white for you don't think of for when you think of it on the duo normally that flexible dorsal shell that is solely attached to its body by thin dorsal membrane. These things the pink fair Diller that grow to be like three point five to four point five inches long. Not counting the tail and they weigh about four point two ounces fully grown so small little dudes. They're not turtle very solitary animals. That's what happens when you live living into the ground. Most of the time and their diets composed mostly of insects worms snails various plant parts, pretty much whatever they can find right? It's one of the very few mammals out there that doesn't have visible external ears the pink fairy Armadillo in oddly enough, there show is actually very fragile and pretty flexible, which means obviously, it's not used as protective armor. Scientists think they're shows are actually for Thermo regulation, which is some of the stuff that we just described earlier. They don't even have a conservation status for pink fairy armadillos because they have no goddamn idea the IUCN how many of them there are. They just don't know there has been a decline in population at certain, you know, they're so rare to spot it's just impossible to have a good number on them back in two thousand six they were on the red list and categorized as near threatened two years later in two thousand eight they were moved to the category known as data deficient because they don't have enough specific scientific information about the animal, which is nuts. That little is known about it because they have the ability to completely bury themselves in a matter of seconds of threatened. So they just burrow into the ground pink fairy armadillos are found less commonly than they were a few decades ago in the field sightings have become rarer and rare individuals that have been caught in the wild had a tendency to die during or a couple days after they were transported from their natural habitat to captive facility. So people have tried to take these pink armadillos pink fairy Armadillo, specifically make him into pets doesn't work. They die almost immediately. Every time. Like a whole column about that. You can go read. There is a soul record for the long jetty of pink fairy Armadillo that was held in captivity more than four years. However that particular case lacks proper scientific description, it can't be considered fully valid. It just can't the pink fairy Armadillo is classified as a fuss. Oriel generalist insectivores. Okay. Because of its main food source being ants and larvae at finds underground than it has primary sources of food. They worm snails insects. I mentioned and it's the only species of Armagh do that's dorsal. Shell is almost completely separate from his body pink fairy Armadillo again, spends most of his time underground similar to a mole..

Turtle now if you lost me again turtle smiled, listen, I'm Adila. Here's what I want. You to do go on live your life and come back to me when you of very very old, then and only then I promise I will help you make music that like you say lives on forever. But for now, you must continue to enjoy the music of others. Are you okay with that Armadillo thought about the parents and the crickets and the frogs and how made fun of his show? But then he thought about their beautiful music and turtles promise that one day. He would make music like that too. He took a deep breath. All right, turtle. I can be okay with that. Over the years that followed I'm Deloitte, put up with his share of razzing about his shell. But it didn't bother him. Not when he knew that someday that shell would help him make glorious music. Eventually Armadillo grew old his claws hurt his snout eight and it was getting harder and harder to rag his arm around to go foraging. One day as Armadillo was about to trudge back to his borough and rest, he heard a familiar voice. Hello little armored one slowly Armadillo turned around and smiled at his old friend. Hello, turtle. Finally time to make music turtle nodded it is finally time to make music return to you a borough go to sleep, and we can't be gin. So Armadillo did as turtle said he went back to his borough and snuggled in tight he fell asleep with a smile on his face and never woke up. The next day. Turtle took armadillos shout, and polished it gleaned, then she took a set of Qatar strings strung across the shells hollow side, she attached a long wooden neck with tuning pegs at the top and created the very first charango a believe, Ian guitar that makes bright beautiful music bursting with life before long, many, many musicians playing the Toronto all across the land. Eventually most Toronto's made a would not Armadillo, but they were decorated to look like that tough little shell oftentimes Toronto's music would reach the rainforest. And when it did the parents would cease their whistling and trilling the crickets stop their chirping the FRANZ with their croaking. Every single animal sick and to the little arm. At long last had finally learned to sing. Now, it's your turn think about one thing. You've always wanted to do. It can be something simple like growing your own garden or something wild like taking a hot air balloon ride across the world. Whatever it is find someone you like to have fun with a family member or friend and tell that person all about goal, then ask your relatives or friends to describe something he or shootings trumped of doing after that put your heads together..

Now, I've been it's Meiring you're whistling drilling. And it's so beautiful. So I have to ask a can you teach me how to sing? Like you. The parrots exchanged a look teach you how to sing. Surely, you must be joking. Everyone knows on Adila owes can't sing maybe you can find someone to play your show like a drama. Nice. Oh, just asking the simple question. You know what? It's okay. I'll go ask the crickets their chirping so wonderfully Chantel, they're bound to be more friendly so Armadillo scuttled over to a patch of burns where the crickets chirping away. Hey, hi there. Crickets, how you doing? Look, I'm the I'm sorry to bother you. But I have a quick question for you the crickets stopped there. Chirping and stared at Armadillo. Let's up little our mood one. Well, guys for long time. Now, I've been enjoying your chirping. It's so loudly in Sweden, and I have to ask. I I mean, can you teach me how to sing? Like, you the crickets widened there is teach you how to sing you got to be kidding. A well known fact that armadillos can't saying maybe you should find someone to play your shell like a marimba. So much for gentle those downright route. But I'm not giving up. I'll go ask the franc's. Maybe they'll be more willing so Armadillo made his way to the edge of the water where the frogs croaking back and forth as they lounged on lily pads. Frogs? Hey, how's it hanging? Listen, I wonder if I could ask you a quick question. The frogs halted their croaking and gazed at Armadillo. What can we do for your little armored one well for longtime? Now, I've been spelled on your croaking, the rhythm, the pacing the music -ality. I have to ask can you teach me how to sing like you? Well, knowing what you know about how the parents answered armadillos question, and the crickets a bet you can guess what the frogs had to say to each you. How to sing you must be pulling our leg. I'll singing Armadillo. Yeah. Right. Maybe you should find someone to play your shell like a rock. Armadillo hung his head. Maybe they're right. Silly shell is the best. I can hope for. I'll never be senior Gnavor Armadillo was about to creep back to his borough and sleep when he heard a voice, I wouldn't be so sure about never little armored one stick with me, and you'll be a singer fought ever.

"All smooths skin. But armadillos stuck with that funny. Little shell. Armadillo wished his shell could protect him from teasing as well as it protected from predators. But no such luck. So most of the time Armadillo stayed in his borough snoozing away. Then once each morning and once each evening he'd get up. And drag his shell out of his borough to eat. Why do I feel like how some juicy gidell's perhaps a colony of ants? Oh, I know how about some tasty termites. But in armadillos mind, the best part about foraging wasn't the food. It was the music. He heard while looking for that food. Oh, yeah. The whistling and trilling of the parents is especially beautiful today. Hey, and they're crickets, how do they gently? Oh, come the frogs croaking back and forth back and forth. Talk about tied rhythm section. You see more than anything else in the world Armadillo logged music and more than anything else in the world. He longed to be unused. What I wouldn't give to be able to say. If only I knew how armadillos yearning grew and grew then one day he had an idea. I know what if I ask the other animals to teach me how to sing they'll probably be so flattered that I asked. So the next time Armadillo went out hunting for food he paused beneath the palm trees where the parents were whistling and trilling..

Samsung tests phone, her ability with a shaped robot and the windy city name has nothing to do with Chicago weather, which was city has everything to do with Chicago's weather. So you think that's why? Yeah. Yeah, the lie was there was a new satellite just launched that uses gamma around beta waves. Speaking, another language. It's not a real language. It's not even a real thing, but I got you. So what do I get for this? So Chicago free of anything else. Soco's nickname coined by the nineteenth century journalists who are referring to the fact that its residents were windbags or full of hot air. But it's Wendy as af.

It was literally mind-blowing. It's funny, right? All right. You're over three baby. Here's here's your last one cry. Last one. Okay. Here we go. Peanuts aren't actually nuts. An egg corden Trie typically produces over three thousand nuts year in Armadillo. Shells are actually bulletproof, which ones a lot, which one's true. Like at this point, it's like. Bulletproof, their shells are bulletproof. Yes, I think that's true. That's true. Okay. What was the other one? A peanut units aren't actually nuts or an acorn tree typically produces over three thousand three thousand. That's the lie. Yeah, you got one right. How peanut not being nuts name full. A peanut is actually not. It's true. Peanuts are legumes according to marriam Webster, nut is only if it's hard shelled dried fruit or seed with a separable rind or show Colonel. That means walnuts almonds, cashews and pistachios aren't nuts, either their seeds, you're eating seeds. So that's not an Armadillo. In fact, one Texas man was hospitalized when a bullet. He shot an Armadillo ricocheted off the animal and hit him in his jaw. They aren't guide. They are bulletproof Armadillo shells really cool. We should put some of those shells in backpacks or something. Might be more cost effective for more would be knocking on our door. Yeah, that's true.

"Eddie's probably best known for the Armadillo world headquarters, but he's also been running red gills ever since. And when we talk about the changing of the guard. Old Austin nuance. And it feels like a great place to dive back into the conversation with Eddie is just a just to tackle that head on. So how easy is it for you to love the Austin that Armadillo existed in and also to love the city Austin's becoming well it takes a little bit of purpose. You have to want to if you're going to get through. It's still here you have to seek it out now used to there wasn't much here. And it wasn't hard to seek out because they were used only one or two or three exceptions to the rule of dull and boring. And and now we have hundreds and hundreds of opportunities for people to enjoy diversity of every sort every kind of entertainment. And that was the Petri dish that we created at your model where we had ballet one night and hard rock the next and country music to next and in a show in a beer garden for. You know, cover all of that was going on right across the drainage ditch. But where the cafeteria got built. Miramonte cafeteria put up a big fit. So their customers wouldn't see the hippies in the beer garden and the hippies garden ended up going over to the cafeteria and eating Jimmy Vaughan may have been the first vegetarian I ever met really really when Stevie was just a baby were eating at the cafeteria. So we we provided good customers for the cafeteria. And that's where I met Mr. Crockett, our landlord always tells people that ask if he's candidate he Crockett, he always snaps back. Third third cousin by a second marriage or something like that. And he's he's the he's the guy that gave UT Longhorn marching band big Bertha and was the marching band director as a volunteer for five years until after time Darrell Royal came in with the with the new age. Crockett is is one of my favorite people. And it's not his fault that we're in such dire straits on the south side right now, it's just simply. The taxes and insurance and whatnot have gone up six hundred percent in the last six years. And so the cost of just existing in that space downtown. Is breathtaking. It's documented in the press. I think I read in the chronicle just a few weeks back where you weren't optimistic that thread gills might survive in that location past south by south west. But it might well I put up that flair to see if there was anybody out there that might be able to come up with a solution and some really really fine. People from Gary killer at Williams to a wonderful man named Gary sap from the. Hunt building corporation out of El Paso, recently, built those big apartments around the downtown's spot and then sold them, but. Sap is such a fan of Armadillo and back in the day that he's he's he said, he'll do whatever he can to help. So. That's all made difficult by money. And that's what's been aggravating me. Now by my entire adult life. I didn't come from it and never recruited and been successful. Getting a lot of attention. But somehow and other pass through one man brain radio on KLBJ, Eddie, I told you coming in. And we were gonna run outta show before we ran out of things to talk about you had come back anytime for sure, but I got time for a few more. So you dedicate the book to Burton and Sandra. Now, obviously, we've got Sandra sitting right here. Who's Burton Burton Wilson was a photographer that just passed a very few years ago. Ninety five years old and Burton showed up at the Armadillo with a camera during one of the first shows and said, I'll take pictures musicians are due mostly black and white work, and I would love to document some of your carrying and I said look. Look, you tell everybody that you own the place and new you'll never need a backstage pass and burden was the friendliest most respected revered but Burton Burton and his his beautiful sweet Victorian wife, Catherine. Tell us a lot about matters. Burton got a call one night at supper he said, I've got to go Kathleen wants to have her portfolio made that means nude pictures and Catherine said burden. I don't understand why you keep shooting. These new you've never sold a one man brand radio. Gail VJ. Eddie Wilson's our guest. The new book is out go written with local, author and music luminary. Jesse sublet it it's so singly titled Armadillo world headquarters. It's the memoir that actually like you said starts when you're ten, but, but it it tells the story of this iconic Austin institution, and as you've said, there's a lot of stories that didn't even make it in here. Let's get you out of here on this question. So man as long as. We're above ground in breathing. We're all works in progress. That means the memoirs still working what's left for you to do at this point. Survive a little longer. Yeah. But in terms of as it relates to music, bringing food and music, and and community is really what is the thing that I that. I think of as a guy who missed the Armadillo okay missed it showed up too late, and you know, I'm class of eighty five Georgetown high school, which means the vast majority of people in their thirties. One of the troublemakers that we had to put up with bad. But I was sadly, as I think I'm going to go on a tangent here for sake, but my friend, Ian, Moore was one of the one of the guys who famously talks about growing up at the parents will bring him and Cheney Cheney one of my dear friends, those guys they're and they're my age, right? But the vast majority of people in the thirties and forties and even into their fifties. Maybe missed what do they need to know about the Armadillo wh-? How do you succinctly tell them? This is what the Armadillo meant then. And here's what it means. Now meant that you could do whatever it was you you needed to do. Due to feel creative and get your ya Ya's in Austin, Texas, Austin has always been. The liberal bastion of a very very conservative state. The blue dot in the red red all those hippies that came here came here to join together. This is this is the place that well, we always called it to cultural Petri dish because people that were getting beat up with rubber hoses in Dallas came here because they wanted to play music and the people from Lubbock came here because they wanted to play music, Houston, San Antonio. We had we had music as the reason that folks came here. But in the meantime, we were bringing in national actually, we're having to try to expose in Austin all of these people around the country that they bought the records. And when we fed those people they went back out and told each other you really want to go play this place. They really treat you good. So hospital talapity has been a part of my existence since. Pasta, Tallahassee intending to kids. My mother ran a day nursery school, and I grew up serving little kid stuff. Sometimes I didn't want to eat. You had to learn to eat your cabbage. Because. My momma my momma founded a hold on a second. I didn't know that eating your vegetables was that, you know, central to the mission to eat your vegetables. Yeah. Well, it was catch you guide you through the day. We we couldn't afford a whole lot the little kids. They loved mama's spaghetti. They are always called it piscotty. And because it was cut up. You didn't have to twirling around a fork you could eat her spaghetti with a spoon. It was good red sauce sweet red sticky sauces that keyed almost everything. Go ahead. Monica do it. Yeah. This one man brand radio on KOA keeps saying we're almost done. But I keep coming up with things ask you. So so play along with me here if I could get in in the the way back machine, all right and be part of the Armadillo. I think the shows that I the shows I would want to teleport into just for just for the day would be Elvis Costello. Maybe maybe pretenders because I'm a huge fan Bruce Springsteen. Well, it would have only cost you a dollar on the first night. Right. Okay. So those would be my big three. What's the one? I'm missing though, what's the one that that that would define that? If you could tell a port back and do the time machine for one night, you know, what let's let's take it out of the hype. And I don't want you to make it about me. Which one would you go back? What night would you go back? And I'm always challenged twenty. I have the memory of Bette midler grabbing me by the shirt pulling me down into her face in cleavage har-. Let's were already on stage. Singing, Barry, Manilow playing piano. Getting ready for her to rush out and she pulled me down to her face. And she said, okay, I hear you the mouthpiece of this place. Tell me everything worth knowing about this one horse town. You got sixty seconds. Nice and spewed. And I've thought I did a pretty good job the longhorns had one. So the tower was glowing. And I made a. Erectile joke out of that. And. Bet shoved me off and maybe thirty seconds of my bladder and took off and went up on stage and turned what little I had given her into ten minutes of the funniest stand up routine. I have ever seen in my life. And so I'm always in that memory always trying to crank out everything about Austin Edward Norton as fast as I possibly can. I just don't talk that fast have much less think that fast, it's one man brand radio KLBJ with Eddie Wilson. Some watching the Tom petty documentary in talking about the time when he was touring with Bob Dylan, and how on stage every night was just like an accident waiting to happen, and essentially the way that petty recounted it was that the accidents. You know, even though sixty to seventy percent of the time. Maybe it could be a mess. It's those Dylan was always going for those magical moments, and that's why he will push them. So I'm curious what were some of the happy accidents? Of of the Armadillo that it was there. There were no best clans Thanksgiving Day, November the twenty second of seventy two believe or three seventy two. I had fed the Grateful Dead the night before in the Mt. Armadillo building because they were playing the Palmer auditorium night before thanksgiving. Okay. And I tell him like Jerry Garcia just look around and said, I would like to play here, and my heart was being so bad. I just almost swallowed it and said, well when would you like to do that? And he said well tomorrow believe it or not Thanksgiving Day. We're just hanging around the hotel because there's no have anything to do. I said, well, we can fix that. And then they went across the street played the Palmer, and his show was ending Garcia was about to exit the back door when it opened and Jim Franklin and Leon Russell were ten in there. And. Garcia said Leon. We're gonna jam tomorrow at two Armadillo you ought to come over. And join us. And what Tom and Garcia looked at me. He hated details. And so he looked at me, and it was my call and I said, three o'clock, ugly weather bad day. I got on. On a telephone to the radio station, the next morning couldn't use any names, of course. But I said, you know, a lot of people are disappointed that were closed on thanksgiving. We don't have any Turkey, but we got a little bit of beef stew. So we're going to have a little jam about three o'clock would just friends that just have nowhere to go and at three o'clock place. Just started filling up before social media.
