"It's intense a lot of sound. You definitely feel it dino and it kind of sounds like rolling thunder. It's just so much sound you know. Even if you weren't to play light you still kind of feel it just because the vibrations ripple out all of that clifton remember the first time he saw big bertha long before he was. Ut's band director. He was just a kid from houston coming to the university of texas at austin for college when i came to try out for the band was over the summertime before class in everything so i walked into the longhorn fan hall for the first time. And you know there wasn't anybody in there. I was like an hour early. So kind of looking around. And then i saw in the back of the room this massive drum and i was just like whoa okay. That's impressive. it's understandable. That big bertha made an impression on young clifton crumbs because it's pretty much what she does everywhere she goes. You know there's always someone whether the like someone eight or like someone eighty s just like. Wow that is such a spectacle you know. And that's what we're going for. And that is exactly which he was designed to do. Nearly a hundred years ago big bertha story begins in nineteen twenty two not in austin but in chicago. It seems hard to believe now but back then. There was a sort of arms race between colleges over who could build the biggest drum a drum that could make a big statement during a football game. Purdue university in indiana showed up to a game in chicago with a big drum one bigger than anyone really thought possible. Drums were still made from animal. Hides back then and not synthetic materials. So you needed a big cow to build a big drum in story goes produced drum was so big that when it was first hit housewives in the area ran out to bring their laundry in thinking it was thunder. The university of chicago was not happy about this so they ordered their own big drum a drum so large that a part of a wall had to be removed just to get her out of the factory a drum so large they named your big bertha and pun very much intended. Big bertha was a real in nineteen thirty eight legendary conductor arturo toscanini even summoner all the way to new york city for performance but had to change his plans when it turned out she was too big to fit through the doors of carnegie hall but then in nineteen thirty nine. The university of chicago made a momentous decision. They were ending diversity football program and no football meant no big bertha. The drum was relegated to storage underneath chicago stadium in stake field and in the nineteen forties during world war. Two steak field was also where italian physicist. Enrico fermi conducted experiments for the manhattan project. The top secret government program to build a nuclear bomb as the legend goes on december second nineteen forty two win fermi triggered the first controlled self sustaining nuclear chain reaction. Big bertha was there underneath the stadium and was contaminated by radiation big bertha with now a huge radioactive drum. Except probably to wasn't maybe true. Maybe not when. It's a good ledger. Though right in ninety four the university of chicago alumni magazine magazine reported that the drum had been brought to a lab and tested with a geiger counter and came out clean. Big bertha's radioactive reputation followed her for years forty years later in texas. They tested her again and she passed what we know for. Sure is that by nineteen fifty five big bertha was on the move moten. Crockett the director of ut's band. Then he was on a mission to find the biggest loudest drum possible so he drove all the way out to the university of chicago convinced them to sell him big bertha for just one dollar and then he drove her back to texas. I don't know how he did it. But mo- drove the drums down from chicago to austin using his own vehicle. I think they were like if you can haul it out of here you can have it and the dollar was just like a symbolic gesture you know. And the drum rivalry between chicago and purdue well it followed big bertha to ut even today ut and purdue quibble over which school has a bigger drum produce actually written world's largest on its drum. But they're pretty cagey when it comes to sharing the exact measurements. A reporter from the indianapolis star even tried to file a freedom of information request to get the dimensions a few years ago to no avail but with some sleuthing she found an answer. Produce drum is just over feet in diameter compared to big bertha's eight. However the is slightly skinnier leading purdue to claim that. It's all in how you measure it ask clifton crumbs who has the bigger drum and diplomatic but unwavering well of course it's university of texas of course it's ut but you know those folks over there purdue which are great people you know. They've got a really big drum also next year. Big bertha will turn one hundred and she'll be celebrating her big birthday. You might say. She's seen century of students. Come and go bam leaders to even the band hall has been moved and rebuilt but all along big bertha has stayed the same did something that ties generations together..

"Like basically. I don't respect it as much like you should have formed this relationship before you wanna challenge. But it's like if the person in power is coming to you and saying. I want to keep you safe. You accept that offer. Hey why would you ever turn that down. This is so naive cows. Have you never watched a season of the challenges. You never watch big brother. You don't say no to these deals. No you always say yes you say yes to every alliance protection deal whatever you can go back on it later if you want to. It's a game but like you just say. Yes in the moment cal. Would you say no really needs some coaching from wes. He needs west. Come back and know him him how to be a good rookie. I think he'll be back to. I think like he made a pretty good impression and he's gotten a good at it so far so i can see i can see him coming back and being a regular yeah So just go straight to josh. And he's like yeah. Let's get this guy out. You're right my dammit dammit. Kells you did this to yourself. You have to work quick and you have to say yes so bought into it and joshua's like fuck gala to. Let's get him out and this plan comes together very quickly and it is executed very quickly. see what happens when the vets actually do work together and i think i think cal has a little bit of an ego that yeah his mindset is nobody can beat me so throw me in what's going to happen not shame because it's not it's not all physical As we learned in your have control over everything you have a partner yup So we also start to see the nelson and bertha of it all happening. More more girl hurting is gonna be birth all season. It is starting out. I mean especially for me. Since i have another important bertha in my life so it is what it is But yeah ashley starts to catch on to this. And you know i do have to say i can relate to ashley where like you know you're talking to someone and maybe it's not that serious but you do start to like them and then as soon as you start to start like feeling something for them you see them with someone else. That's a sucky feeling and super wasted and like blackout drunk. Like i'm pretty sure she was. Yeah does just a recipe for disaster. So i have to give it to her on this one that i think this is a relatable situation that probably a lot of women have been in. I mean to an extent she really well yes. To an extent he always takes a little too far and yeah but in burner walks away and is just thinking game wise. Now i'm going to have a huge target on my back. Where i disagree with that portion. Is that actually always find somebody to go after personally and nobody really takes it seriously..

"L. ing and now they're working out together And they're just like really feel in each other and you know i was saying last week. I'm like don't jump into anything tori. But then i'm their q. And if she can just have fun with it and just have a little fleeing on this season. I'm here for it but can't gdn. Can she just have a fling because all of her flings have turned out to be more of what we've seen on tv. I don't know about in real life. Yeah i mean. Fussy was pretty flinging fleeing like this went one time and then left because he sucks bad probably. That's what i'm telling you. I mean for sure. I think that's definitely what happened But they're i mean they're cute together. I like it We also start to see. All the vets come together and start to identify as the ringleader of the rookies which. I don't know that that's necessarily true. I think it's just that he's a physical threat and they just want him out for that reason and they're saying that as an excuse. Josh wants him out. Let's be very clear that it's josh that wants him out. Because i think josh knows this full could take me out if we had to go head to head with him. He's gonna take me out i. I didn't see kells as some ringleader. Rookies of anything. It's big right now. Is man i would even go as far to say maybe a manual is gonna take that spot i. I think it's too early to say it's cows and we have to label one person. I could see michelle to being a ringleader of the rookie. So yeah it's just because he's a physical threat which is kind of theme throughout this episode of like josh trying to figure out reasons why he's putting him on him on the block. Listen and i know. It's hard when they're on at the same time it really is. It is.

I talked to so many people already particularly the young people Who just see no opportunity They have no work and now they've lost everything so they really have nothing to lose And they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help to their families to rebuild and recoup everything. They've lost the united states government. has limited at least under the trump administration migration from many of these countries at the same time it's ass many central american countries to help it with its asylum policies Has the us. Government sent any aid to these countries as they struggle to deal with the blows from these hurricanes the lack of leadership from the us Following these crisis is really shocking. There's been no word from the state department or from the white house other than us aid which is down here. Most recently after i iota they designated seventeen million dollars through the region half of which is going to honduras and then also the. Us military base. Don't here has been a source of of rescue missions which has definitely been very helpful but seventeen million dollars when we're talking about billions and billions dollars damage and really in nine hundred ninety eight when hurricane mitch hit which was the worst natural disaster in central america to date it was. Us leadership that mobilized support from the global community and that is completely lacking at this point. president-elect biden has expressed is concerned and support for the region. So there's hope that when he takes office he will take that traditional leadership role of the. Us to help one of its neighbors. I'll be watching to see how this pans out.

How To Be An Anti-Casteist
"Warner. We started talking about cast with Lauren Freyer. This is Lauren NPR's India correspondent who started thinking about cast and race in part because of an initiative at NPR to track the diversity of sources. This is something we all know do including this podcast. We will note how many women were putting on the air, how many people of Color and other demographic stats I see my company trying to better represent America with the voices we put on the air and I'm looking at my own sourcing and I get too much credit. Every voice I bring to the airwaves from India as a person of color check the box you know that's diversity from my boss' point of view but I'm looking at different types of diversity in India and thinking. CAST. You see it in India when it comes to. Arranged marriages, dating APPS, you see it in real estate I mean there are subtle ways in which landlords choose tenants and signal to tenants. That certain cats are welcome or not welcome. There is no uncontroversial way to talk about cast and even the words we use are fraud. You're going to hear people in this story talk about upper caste and lower caste. We're GONNA try to avoid those hierarchies and say dominant cast at oppressed caste oppression is a strong term, but it definitely applies here. This is oppression that's gone back centuries. It was really amplified by the British. So British colonists came in and gave Brahmins privileges elevated them and exploited this power differential between the BRAHMINS and other castes and when Indians won their independence in nineteen forty seven, they wrote a constitution that acknowledges that oppression and lays out bold measures to try to fix it affirmative action programs to place dollars in government jobs to play dollars, its top universities, and all of that exists in India still today. But despite all of this dalits in India face so much violence disproportionate violence Daulat women are raped more than women of other Castes Dalit men get lynched for falling in love with dominant caste woman lauren knew she wanted to find out peoples cast to make sure she was hearing from variety of voices including people who don't always get access to speak. But. This broad a new problem. How actually do you find out? SOMEONE'S CAST? So Good question. How does one person Oh you're cast light it is not like you have a color which gives away your identity. Same Cornelia says, sometimes, it's easy. You just read someone's cast by their surname sometimes you cannot hide and how about your real surname is it easy to hide your? Name doesn't go my cost us a k. that this wife immediately when I only seven, they will ask me whole willing come from which part of the state you come from. There had to ask a follow up question. If you can't tell by surname, you can ask about someone's neighborhood are also tried to be clever I come from Hyderabad slow from Hyderabad. It's the city of nine million people all casts are there. So that's the people are not satisfied if you do named. So what they do is no, no. No. I'm not talking about with city you come from willow would your parents which relates Came from Sam keeps dodging the real question might played into used to stay in Bombay. Can. Actually before that, my father used to work. So he was daily. You just keep naming, cities. Because that is the facts also, then they will. They will understand that I'm playing around to the. Sam Doesn't want to reveal his cast because most of his Indian coworkers from dominant castes in fact, the overwhelming majority of south, Asians in America from dominant castes. They're often the ones with the resources and access to get here. The other portion usually people ask is already which. Because Brahman Salvage. Aliens. If you say. If you are in. Indian Austin Indian to find overcast he would say. Which stadium by Bertha, by choice and. The tricky thing about this is that a CO worker could be overhearing this entire conversation. is still have no clue what they're really talking about. They will not even the people were very active about this. In always discrimination and all they might have not heard about cast at all. One person who has written about this hidden code it's Sora. John. Day He's a scholar at Harvard and he wrote a book called cast matters I am A. Child of a former landless labourer and someone who is to clean toilet. into the houses of the dominant caste people. So I'm a I'm adult Indian, and when I come to, of course, America I am a person of color. This two identities that help him see things that other people don't see for example, suraj points out this video they came out last fall. Okay. So what we're GonNa Cook today is an Indian recipe. Yes. Because you are yes. Okay. This is a video filmed in the kitchen of the actor and writer Mindy Kaeling on this day when Senator Comma Harris has stopped by to cook.

I'm doing right now in this in this window like he cannot do. What can I give some like? What's the? What's the things that working I work a shortcut? Was Licensing. Course and licensing content, and in this morning of three other people that I K, you Jimmy Product I can license or coarser.

You Know Reverend Jackson at the same time that we have these attack ads running against Bernie Sanders and this relation of Bernie Sanders comments during the period of the US dirty wars in central and Latin America you have this demonization of Sanders going on.

Reverend Jackson it seems that on the one hand you have Bernie Sanders running against Donald trump you have Bernie sanders running against his competitors in the Democratic primary but I would also assert that in a clear sense Bernie Sanders is also running against the DNC. The elite of the Democratic Party's leadership and really arcane rules that you also faced when you ran for president particularly in nineteen eighty-eight that seem to want to give the power brokers the shadow brokers of the Democratic Party.

Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb here on February six nineteen seventy-one. Be late astronaut Alan Shepard the commander of NASA's. Apollo fourteen mission was taking a walk on the moon. He and fellow space traveler, Edgar Mitchell were out gathering rocks around a depression called cone crater to quote shepherd himself. Many of these were hand sized grab samples, but the pair took home some larger mementos to one basketball sized rock collected by Shepard earned itself. A nickname big Bertha officially known as lunar sample one four three two one big Bertha weighs about nineteen pounds. That's nine kilograms making it the largest rock that Apollo fourteen brought back to earth and the third largest collected by any of the Apollo missions. Although shepherd found big Bertha on the moon that may not be where it story began. The rock is a Brescia a hodgepodge of geologic fragments called clasps which are held together by cement like mix. A newly published hype. Office says that part of big Bertha formed billions of years ago right here on planet earth. In fact, despite the lunar connection this could represent the oldest earth rock ever discovered. Big Bertha's origins were the focus of a study that was published in January in the journal earth and planetary science letters the paper's authors include an international team of geo. Scientists who looked the moon rocks procured by Apollo fourteen including lunar sample, one four three two one for the most part the classes on this famous Brescia are dark gray. But there's also a lightly colored one that catches the eye. It's made a fell site a kind of all Cannock rock that contains the minerals feld Spar end quartz. The light grade class which is two centimeters that's point seven inches across is loaded with tiny zircon crystals as well many cons contain vital information about what the environment was like when and where they formed close inspection of zircon and big Bertha's light. Patch showed that the crystals were produced by cool oxygen, rich magma. Yet molten rock of the sort doesn't exist anywhere near the moon's surface defined some you'd need to travel more than one hundred miles. That's one hundred sixty two kilometers below the surface of the moon where Shepard and Mitchell found big Bertha. So how did these cons and the class? They belong to end up on the surface of violent impact was probably involved when a meteorite or asteroids smacks into a planet or moon, it can transport material that's buried deep under the crest up to the surface. And as noted earlier big Bertha was found near an impact crater. So case closed, right? Well, maybe not cone crater and expanse measuring about two hundred and fifty feet that seventy six meters. Deep and a thousand feet or three hundred and four meters wide was created roughly twenty six million years ago. Scientists thinks that the violent episode that left this depression behind would have failed to dredge up geologic material lying more than forty five miles or seventy two kilometers underneath the moon. A big Bertha's fell site classed. Could have originated deepen a lunar magma pocket. But it doesn't seem likely. The study authors think different scenario is way, more plausible around twelve miles or nineteen kilometers blow planet earth surface. There's a supply of cool oxidized magma. This is exactly the kind of raw material that probably made his cons on big Bertha's light patch. And by the way, they're con crystals. Have a helpful habit of preserving uranium isotopes? Those can be used for radio metric dating a process that tells us the fell site classed is four point zero to four point one billion years old, but both of these clues together and a potential timeline of events emerges. According to the policies championed in the study, some of that cool oxidized magma lying deep under earth's continental crust hardened into this class between four point zero and four point one billion years ago. We know that our planet was besieged by meteorites in those days a process that by the way created a lot of old Granitz. Repeat impacts would have driven the class ever closer to the surface until finally a projectile hit the earth with enough force to launch the fell site clear out into space. It's estimated that four billion years ago. Our moon was around three times closer to earth than it is right now, the far flung class might have bridged the gap and settled on the moon, but around that time meteorites from space also harassed the moon and approximately three point nine billion years ago. One of these impacts could partially melted. The class and driven it under the lunar surface where it merged with other classes and became part of Brescia then twenty six million years ago, the asteroid strike that gave birth to the cone crater could set big Bertha free propelling it to the spot where Alan shepherd came and grabbed it up one historic day in nineteen seventy-one if the fell site class really did have terrestrial origin. Then ironically enough, it might be the oldest known rock from planet earth. There's a four point zero three billion year. Old rock from Canada's Northwest. Territories that's comparable in age and over in Quebec, the greenstone belt is at least three point nine billion years old out in the Jack hills of Western Australia. Scientists have located circum- that formed roughly four point three seven billion years ago, but these crystals seemingly detached from their original rocks at some point big Bertha's fell site, classed and zircon seemed to have formed simultaneously.

"Cap. Did you know that crows are smart? Of course, I been listening to you on this. I'm tony. How smart crows? And we have Kalian on here while back. We sure did expert. Yes, I have on vacation didn't crow sit in for me actually part of the show. That's. I just have the latest line latest headline in the series of crows are smart stories. This is of course, the New Caledonian crow the superstar of crow intelligence. This is a study from the university of Auckland University of Cambridge Bertha von Suttner university and the Max Planck institute for the science of human history. Interesting addition there at the end, they found that New Caledonian crows can infer the weight of an object by watching how it behaves in the wind. So we know by looking at things how heavy or light. They are by the way, they responded breezy conditions. The study they offer or the the example up here is that if you have a napkin and a fork on the table at an outdoor cafe the napkin will fly away the fork will not you might even take that fork and put it on top of the napkin two-way hit down. But we have not studied any other creature being able to figure this out just by looking. Yet. This might just be a case of not to looking. I haven't heard a lot of a lot of studies looking at this specifically, but regardless this is a study where they actually they didn't use lab birds. They went out into the wild and grab twelve birds from the wild brought them back into the lab, and they were taught to use a weight of an object to receive a food reward. So half of them were taught that they needed the lighter object to get their food reward. And half of them are taught they needed the heavier want to get their food or ward, then they took those same objects that they learned about they strung them a few inches off the ground one by one pointed fan at them. They got to see how they blew around. And so even though they might look the same by watching which ones moved in which ones didn't the ones that blew around easily in theory were where lighter the heavy ones remains stationary. Then they brought the birds into the test area and the birds got to pick whichever one they wanted without having touched them first. So they pick something and it was over. They didn't get to pick them each up and decide. And they were seventy three percent accurate. So definitely more than just random in Tuesday. The objects that would get the reward. So if they were taught that they needed the light object. They went for the one that was moved around by the wind if they were taught they need the heavy objects pick the one that didn't move from the wind. So this is a very interesting bit of kind of inference that they're able to figure out just by watching natural conditions. Also, they they tried to do something that they might actually see the wild wind is a very natural thing they grabbed these weld birds. So they're not used to solving puzzles, these their lab crows that are Larry have you done. The latest New York Times crossword..
"bertha" Discussed on Point of Inquiry
"Thirteen to sixteen percent thirteen to sixteen percents. I'm gonna let that number Singin of high school biology teachers in the United States openly espouse the idea that life was created as it is right now on this planet six thousand years ago. Seven or fewer. Yeah. It's insane. The state for today's interview as birth set. In the teaser thirteen to sixteen percent of the science teachers in America, the high school science teachers in America are teaching creationism the unscientific belief that the earth began six thousand years ago and all the life forms on earth. Today were also created six thousand years ago, two hundred sixty two three hundred and twenty thousand teachers are openly espousing creationism at our public schools. That is scary. The unscientific belief in creationism goals high into the ranks of our government officials here as vice President Mike Pence addressing congress in two thousand and two when he was still a Representative from the state of Indiana the bible. Tells us that God created man in his own image, male and female, he created it. And I believe that Mr Speaker, I believe that God created the known university earth and everything in an including man. And I also believe that someday scientists will come to see that only the theory of intelligent design provides even remotely rational explanation for the known universe. But until that day comes and I have no fear of science. I believe that the more. We study the science the more. The truths of faith will become a parent. I would humbly ask as new theories of evolution find their ways into the newspapers and into the textbooks. Let us demand that educators around America, teach evolution not as fact, but it's theory an interesting theory to boot, but let's also bring into the minds of all of our children all of the theories about the unknowable that some bright. Day in the future through science and perhaps three face. We will find the truth of from whence. We come and I yield back. I would homely point out to the vice president that science has it been verifying religious beliefs for the last five hundred years, it's been rendering them unnecessary. So this is we're at we have elected officials pushing for nonscientific ideas to be taught right alongside of established verifiable science. So what do we do about this whole today? We're gonna talk to someone who is doing something about it Bertha Vasquez was with me in October during psychotic and we had a chat about what the center for inquiry is doing about creationism being taught in the public schools. All right. We are here with Bertha. Vazquez? Did I say your name, right? He You did. did. I love the Tuesay's. Yes. Most people don't people. It's S Z. I've had diploma spelled wrong credit cards. You name it. Would be it would be a huge score a scrabble game. Proper game. It's true. But we are here in Las Vegas, Nevada. At sei con, and what is your topic gonna be at it's about tying up creationism in the classroom. It's about the teacher institute revolutionary science. And that's what we're going to talk to you today about the teacher institute for science. But so do you have a title regarding that will what is your end, the director of the teacher institute from luminary science for the Richard Dawkins foundation for reason in science, which is part of the center for inquiry, but you're also a regular teacher school. I am a fulltime class from teacher in south Florida. And I've been at it for twenty eight years. How old are the kids that I teach middle schoolers twelve thirteen fourteen years old as it a particular subject or do take show right now, I teach honors physical science, which is a ninth grade course to really awesome, seventh graders. And I teach honors biology which is a tenth grade course who those same seventh graders when they get to eighth grade. So they kids are two years ahead in Florida curriculum. Never experienced that myself. Don't believe you. I don't even think they had they call him, AP, classes and natto come. That's later. These kids will be those types of students that are taking a AP and things like that. No, I was there. Our Pete regular placement basis. Well, you're late bloomer their gym, maybe. Okay. Cool. Will you ever regular full-time job? And then you do this ties job. Tell me the story about how ties got started. I love this story. I'm going to ask me that question. So.
