"Okay, so Erin, you gave me an hour and a half. 10 minutes. So we ran through that. I hope I didn't bore in near you. So maybe I just leave it to the floor. Do you want to leave it open to questions for a bit? Okay, and then I don't know who's leading it. Lane, are you? Okay, there we go. Okay, Lane is one of the first ones, not the first ones, but one of these men that I think I kind of mentored and taught. Not long ago, no, we won't talk about that. It's more than 18 years ago. Any Okay. questions, thoughts? Yeah. So do you have an office in the church? Is the church open all day only? Well, that's, I had my office, my office was in my home, so I didn't have an office there and I did try to meet there or go there, but it didn't really work out. Pastor Eric, when he started, he had his office in the church, but the problem is, as a pastor, is that you can't just be, have somebody walking in all the time because you need the time to be able to prepare for Sunday for the preaching, so that became more difficult. So now that we have Michael as a full -time admission worker, he has an office in the church, and so now people can come and he counsels people within the church, and so that's really, really helpful and really good. So if you're able to do that, have somebody in the church, I think that would be helpful. Just to be able to say to the community, the church is open and now there's somebody here who you can talk with, who you can talk to. John? I'm interested in this woman from Cameroon. You mentioned that she sings sometimes in her language. English. She sings in English. I guess she comes from the English part of Cameroon, so Cameroon is a French part and an English part. So how does that fit with our genuine tunes? Well, you want to hear songs about Theseus and in the tree. Those are the type of songs that you would often be. It'll be songs that would kind of write the story, the Bible, the biblical stories, quite simple songs, beautiful songs, I don't know. I would say they would be totally appropriate for the worship service, but nevertheless, what these songs do is they tell a story and usually there's some kind of a moral teaching that comes with it. I'll crawl over to that, is how do they feel about when they come in sing and they the Geneva song? Yep, interesting question. We have different reactions. Those who have become members of the church, they don't change it. They don't change it because we love it that we're singing scripture. And that's a strange one for most of us because I kind of have an inclination saying, well, you know what, that's kind of hard to speak it, have some easier music. They will say this. They say when we first come, it's a challenge. So they're honest in that sense. It is a challenge, but we come to appreciate that we're singing scripture, which is a really interesting economy. Michael tells me, he says, I first came, he says, the songs, I thought they were boring and they were kind of deadening. So I talked to somebody in John MacArthur's church about that and he said, you know what? He says, just embrace the fact that you're singing in the scripture. He says, and that was the best advice I got. I came back and it's a whole different attitude towards singing. So there is a challenge to that. So I'm not sure whether we should simply say, oh, don't do anything about it. Can we make Geneva tunes? It's something that might be a little easier for newcomers. I really don't, I don't know if that helps because at the same time, a lot of these people don't know the other hymns either. People come in off the street and they say, what kind of tunes are you singing? And then after a while it grows on them and they say, wow, what are we? Yeah, they really appreciate it. It might take them a while. I'm gonna tell a story about a lady that's, that left us because she's singing, went to another church, joined the church, became baptized, and now it's coming back to us again because you realize that the singing isn't everything because she's missing the things that she has here in our church.

"Hello, my Friends. Welcome back to the channel or the podcast show depending on where you're watching or listening. We've got to show all about crypto taxes. Everyone's favorite topic to hate. We're going to talk a lot about crypto taxes. We'll talk about tools to help you achieve your crypto taxes this year. And we'll also talk about what the future might hold for crypto taxes and regulation. The IRS and all sorts of interesting stuff like that and joining me today is David Cameroon the founder and CEO of coin ledger who just happens to be the sponsor of the show today. So David, thanks so much for being here, my friend. Yeah, thanks for having me. It's fun to be on and excited about excited to talk about the boring topic of taxes. Yeah, it's always, it's a heated topic for a lot of people, you know, you've got opinions ranging from one side of the spectrum to the other people saying crypto taxes should not exist. I'm not paying them to people who say you should absolutely pay them and this is how you should do it. But across the board, everyone just kind of realizes this is something we kind of have to do. That being said, David, right before we get started on the tax topic, we're right now at the time of recording kind of in the midst of this crypto rally whilst the rest of the world and macroeconomic conditions are pretty terrible. What are your thoughts on that? Do you think this is going to last? What are your thoughts on the crypto market? Yeah, I personally don't see it lasting. I would love to be proved wrong. But this to me looks like, you know, just momentum on the new year, again, a lot of the tax harvesting is done and now people are kind of reentering positions. Given the macroeconomic outlook and really technology sectors is abroad. I don't see how it lasts, but again, I would love to be proof wrong. Hey, listen, I'll take it. If we're going to get some sustained movement upwards and price, I think that would be a nice thing. There's a little bit of bear market fatigue right now. Like sentiment wise, I think FTX and all the stuff that's happened is kind of brought people down to the lowest of lows.
Bitcoin Is Optimism With Alex Gladstein
"Well, for many of you, Alex gladstone needs no introduction. He's the chief strategy officer at the human rights foundations, and one of the clarion voices helping bitcoiners understand see and experience how Bitcoin is impacting communities around the world, especially those who are living inside unstable monetary regimes or under autocratic power. It was another amazing year of Alex's writing and contributing to our understanding of Bitcoin. And in this conversation we talk about his experience at the Africa Bitcoin conference, his recent time in India, and why so much of the energy around Bitcoin is coming from emerging markets and the developing world. All right, Alex, welcome back to the breakdown sir. How are you doing? Great, happy to be here. Happy holidays. You too, you too. Listen, I'm always excited to chat with you. And I think this year is a particularly opportune time to reflect on the year that was in Bitcoin in particular. And you obviously have been out there kind of living exploring and discovering Bitcoin and all of its various manifestations. So I'm really excited to chat. And by way of starting really, really broad. If you had to summarize Bitcoin's year in 2022, what would you say? Well, for me, it was global adoption. And I think that continues in 2023. I've seen stuff that, you know, that you people wouldn't believe. It's true. Especially when I went down to the African Bitcoin conference in Ghana, just staggered by the variety of communities and businesses and entrepreneurs and innovators and developers. Building on Bitcoin and focusing on Bitcoin from countries that like most Americans don't even know exist. I mean, it's really just incredible. Meeting people from Somaliland and Benin and Cameroon and DR Congo. And people coming to this conference and then going home to cities like Mogadishu where they're going to continue to work on their projects was pretty mind-blowing. I mean, it's safe to say that in all the world's most crazy conflict zones and dictatorships, there are thriving Bitcoin communities.

"President Biden admits that the measure that passed Congress this week averting a potentially crippling rail strike is not perfect, but he says it does provide some relief to rail workers. We assured workers are going to get a historic 24% wage increase over the next 5 years, improve working conditions, and peace of mind around their healthcare. And look, I know this bill doesn't have paid sick leave. At these rail workers and frankly, every worker in America deserves. But that fight isn't over.

While looks, is it changes are coming to the primary process for the Democratic Party, Democrats have voted to make South Carolina not Iowa the leadoff presidential nominating state. Washington correspondent Joe Matthews says explains why that decision has been made. The strategy is to give more people of color a voice in the early nominating process and this is not a new idea. We've been hearing challenges to the lineup every four years for some time now because Iowa and New Hampshire are tiny states that are more than 90% white. Bloomberg's Joe Matthew says South Carolina would be followed by Nevada and New Hampshire, Georgia, and then Michigan. It's an effort to elevate the diverse working class voter that helped propel Biden to victory in 2020.

"Be taken away. These are all very real, every day realities for LGBT people on the continent. But still, people are creating families. They are, you know, they are advocating for their rights. They're being visible. They're pushing. They're trying to change their churches. They're trying to come out to their families. So this is all part of the movement for change on the African continent and all of the countries in various ways. I think it's always really challenging. And also dangerous to have a single narrative about a place. We, when we did Africa, we really wanted to make sure that we told a variety of stories. Not just the hard stories, which are there, but also the stories around love, perseverance, someone talking about RuPaul's Drag Race, we just published episode with Bebe, who won the first repose drag race if you all remember Cameroon's like 2009.

So like our job was there to, you know, stop agitating along with, but we didn't have to cuz I did it to themselves like they saw, they make sure everyone was on the level cuz they wanted to make sure everything was civil and, you know, that's why we were there and we wanted to make sure that just like anything else. You know, we, we were kind of, we were handcuffed. I mean, everyone thinks we were there too. For you know, the police side we were there for both sides. Well, democracy works is dead. Kind of fight Camp is that like you're trading during the day and at night, you're guarding. The, I mean, how do you, how do you train for a heavyweight championship fight? While doing that? I did it, you know? Cuz I thought we got there, like, March 5th. We got to the courthouse and then paperwork was coming through cuz that time I didn't know, I had to fight the fight. I didn't sign a contract. All about halfway through April, about the first week, April took the fight was coming and you know my my leadership in my unit didn't have to do this but they did. They actually released me two weeks early so I'd go back and so training for the fight and they didn't have to do that. I am in there going past the front, it all the time, all the time. But you know, they understand that you know really I only work once twice maybe three times a year so they kind of let me check out you go from there to spray in Ghana. I know. Well you know this was back in u.s. back in Cameroon so I didn't get my spawning grounds within this Camp. You know which which is all right. Yep. I wasn't saying looked at Pulaski game. Yeah, that's true. That's true. That's true. Well men. Now, I know you got a beautiful baby, you gotta a hot wife, you're not working at the at the office anymore, right? No, no, I'm not only thing. I do every once awhile do is I go back home and I work in the work for in the field for Harvest, which will see if I had to go back home too small or not. What do you, what do you harvesting corn soybeans?.
Priya Parker on the Art of Gathering
"So my mother comes from originally banaras. Which is the sort of you know. One of the oldest cities in india and her father who actually would have turned one hundred today. Pass away about a few months ago. Her father worked for the indian government and so she and her four siblings traveled around india lot and when it was time for her to kind of get married she decided she didn't want to earliest not didn't want to have an arranged marriage and she can secretly applied to graduate school and the us and got into a few places and at least in that generation virginia versus iowa vs minnesota. You're sort of just you have no idea what is what and you just say yes and she ended up at iowa. State university begged her parents to let her go and they allowed her to. Was that unusual for sort of that moment. In time it was unusual that she was a woman so the us immigration laws changed in sixty eight and allowed for a changed from country and orc origin to family like unification and so it was after that that a lot of indians kind of came into the country and but the majority of the i kind of indian to come of those families particularly to graduate school. Were men so is very unusual for the first person to be a woman of a family and she went to iowa state and met my father who was born and raised in waterloo iowa. Though the family came from south dakota and a white american like in every way you look at his high school pictures and it looks like the kind of americana like prom picture but he had just recently come back from the peace corps. He peace corps and cameroon and then stayed an extra year and hitchhiked across the sahara and came back and didn't sort of in reverse culture shock and his teacher has professor at graduate. School or from undergrad said. Why don't you just come to graduate school with me and to kind of get over. Your culture shock volunteer at the international students office and i actually recently learned that culture. Shock originally meant when people came to their own country after having experience abroad so essentially mountain reverse culture shock but anyway
Record 29 Million in the Sahel in Need of Humanitarian Assistance
"That almost 30 million people in this a hell are in urgent Need of assistance? Yes, that's a rise of five million in just one year. Suffering is driven in large passed by ongoing Islamist violence. The newsroom's Peter Coffin told me more The hell is this broad stretch of West and Central Africa just south of the Sahara Desert. This statement by the U. N and some international charities has specifically mentioned Burkina Fasso, Chad, Mali, Neige and parts of Cameroon and Nigeria, and it said there are now a record 29 million people across those six countries who need humanitarian aid. 14 million are living at crisis or emergency levels of food insecurity, and included in that are an estimated 1.6 million Children experiencing severe malnutrition. Now that's a hell already faces challenges to food production. It's a new, arid place. The Sahara is expanding. But as you mentioned, the U. N has said that violence is really driving the increase in hunger. We know that governments in the region have been battling Islamist militias for the past decade. There are parts of the region under militant control. Just last week, we reported the Chad's president died leading his army against one of these groups, and in the past 24 hours, we've learned that a pair of Spanish journalists and an Irish citizen were killed in Burkina Fasso. But the U. N says it's civilians who really bear the brunt of the fighting. You have those numbers
The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers
"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes
Africa's Great Green Wall to combat desertification secures $16.8 billion in international finance Impact
"Now we have science writer. Rachel danske with an update on africa's great green wall project which will soon see an infusion of billions of dollars from the world bank and others this project. The great green wall is intended to serve as a bulwark against desertification of the land south of the sahara desert while at the same time supporting communities that live in this region. Okay rachel how're you doing. I'm doing well. Thanks for having me sure. This is a rape big wall. This is a big project. It's basically supposed to be this green band that spans about seven thousand kilometers across the whole hop of africa. It launched back in two thousand seven. Rachel what would you say. The progress has been since two thousand seven now to two thousand twenty one almost non-existent which is why they launched this new round of funding last month. There was an assessment that found that a fraction of the goal had been achieved so far and the goal is for twenty thirty so they realized that time was running out right throughout this piece. You make this really important distinction between planting a tree and growing a tree. Why is that so important to think about when you know thinking about restoring lands or planting trees to help prevent desertification. The first time. I heard it. I just thought well. That's a really good way to put it. And then when racer after another would phrase it that way that we don't plant trees we grow them because that's been one of the missing pieces in restoration. Efforts globally not even specific to the great green wall but just in restoration landscape and forest restoration. Generally there has been this focus on planting trees but little focus really on looking at what gets planted in the first place in paying attention to the species diversity in the planting material and making sure that it's the right tree for the right place. There's also last follow plus maintenance of the tree then there needs to be talked to someone in west africa who was saying that. He's traveled to so many countries throughout the continental. Seen so many trees planted. But where the forests. Yeah that's a really interesting way of thinking about it. Basically tree planting mania that's been happening has come from all these different projects foundations quotas. That are saying oh. It costs a dollar to put a tree in the ground and we're going to offset our carbon. We're going to green the world but no one's looking after these trees and making sure that they live beyond that for sheer gas so now that we know that. That's not a good way to go about this. There's actually a lot of research. That's found some of the best practices for restoration projects. What are some of the recommendations have come out from research. In the past ten years when paper published last year talked about ten golden rules for reforestation. And they think those summed up a lot of the recommendations really well in addition to just protecting existing forests which probably sounds obvious. But there's a lot of research on the new. I don't have the same benefits that existing ones do and it's hard to replace that beyond that involving local communities has been just incredibly important component that researchers are saying was not really part of the focus before because the restoration ecologists are focused on the physical research and they aren't trained to think about how people play into the picture and it's just so important to the survival of the trees because it's people who are planting trees and it's people who are maintaining the trees and if you don't have community by an investment in rye these trees there and interested keeping them there. The trees aren't going to last and the trees only have their benefits when they last going back to trees here for a minute you mentioned keeping old us in place for protecting them. What else is being looked at. So that's when using a diversity of species so that there can start to be restored. Biodiversity rather than just monoculture of trees. They're starting to be focused now. Also on the quality of the seeds. And what you're actually planting. And how do we build. The systems and infrastructure for collecting and improving. Seeds is going to be the most resilient seed for that species but then it's also about the genetic diversity because there can be inbreeding with plants. If you're not collecting from wide enough geographic area than you can start to sort of limit. The gene pool and that can be problematic. You talk about this example in ethiopia of a seat initiative a network that is supposed to improve the quality of seats. Can you talk about how that would work. And how it would involve the community. The provision of adequate trees deep portfolio or pets. Bo is a project in ethiopia that they're calling it a functional trees seed system. It's a multi-pronged effort. They're trying to develop standards for seed collection and sharing that. There's high quality seed that will ensure that the trees that are planted can be their most resilient they're developing maps for how to source those seeds they're trying to strengthen the research system the infrastructure and the the research system to improve seed quality and they're linking all of that to the people who will use the seeds seeds there's technical training for farmers and the local language and there are diagrams of how to store different types of seeds. They're really trying to get that knowledge to the community to farmers and local nurseries to scale up the capacity of local decentralized infrastructure. Is there another model project that people might be looking at to expand as the money comes in. Are there other areas. That are doing good things. Yeah there was one of their project that i came across the one billion trees for africa project. And it's led by this man from cameroon tabby jota. He talked about how he grew up in this thriving economy system and he went off to university and when he came back the lands that he new as a forest with no longer for us. He started planting marina cheese and cola nut trees and mingo trees and all these different trees that would restore some of the soil health that he thought had been lost but also produce food and income generating opportunities for people so that they would be invested in keeping the trees there. He called his approach. The contagion approach. Because it's just sort of caught on. He got a bunch of men and women in this one community to be involved in the tree planting the neighboring communities saw what was happening and he was very clear that it's not like a drastic change where their community sedley rich where they weren't before but the small benefits were noticeable and so the neighboring community wanted to do something similar. And so it's just been a word of mouth approach so as he developed this very grassroots success he's gotten funding from more international sources than use it to do the work on the ground in these different communities mostly in west africa. And he's starting to do more and more with the great great wall which seems very exciting so there are a couple of different findings that we talked about that suggests the way forward for this type of restoration project involving the community diversity of. They're planting making sure that they're not just putting stuff in the ground but they're actually supporting plant growth and the communities around it but another thing that comes up a lot in your story is now we kind of what should happen. Researchers have come to a lot of conclusions that are very useful. But then there's the practice what's actually happening on the ground and maybe even what will happen on the ground. What are some of the biggest impediments to implementing the results of this research. One interesting comment. That i heard was that the implementing partners people with the money don't have scientist on their teams. They don't realize how complicated it is to plant a tree into get it right and to make sure that grows the lack of knowledge in the right places and the lack of communication between the people with the money and the people with the knowledge and also the community who is going to be involved. Those conversations aren't being had something else that a here is the expectations that donors have. They want fast results. And that's not. How trees in general work. But it's especially not how effective restoration works because all of these things need to happen and they take time getting communities involved. There's a lot of upfront investment. That needs to happen. In developing all of this infrastructure and research systems with a lot faster to just go and say just plant a bunch of eucalyptus trees. Because that's what they have the seeds and planting materials for. There's a disconnect between the speed that donors want to see results and the reality of what needs to happen. I've seen that you've written about this project for years now. What do you think you're going to see if you check back in two years. I hope to see that things. Like the pats project and this other effort the one billion trees for africa a hope that they have scaled and and that they inspire or serve as models for other projects. I don't know where. I'm placing bets. It feels like there is enough of a resounding message coming from the research community about the importance of this and the importance for the effective ecosystem function restoration and the community development but also for the climate benefits and if the global fenders governments who want to plant trees for the climate benefits if they are serious than they will start listening to these researchers. This is like thousands of miles. Four thousand miles. That's like the us plus another third right east west a huge huge area to cover an across countries. And all these different people's. How is this. possible. Rachel i mean this is a global scale. This is a huge project. it's huge. It's huge and that's probably why it sounded like the great idea when they announced it. And why didn't go anywhere for ten years but it's the partner agencies that i've spoken with involved in this project. The great queen wall are really clear that it's an environmental program but it's also the social alliance when that's meant to economic development but also really impart some resilience. See into these communities. Who are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. That's why they're really ramping. Up this funding now because they see the value for the planet from a climate change perspective but also for the millions of people across this gigantic area. Pinks rachel thanks for having me.

Saving Sea Level Records: What Historical Records Tell Us About The Rising Ocean
"So lauren you sent me a picture of one of these century old title logbooks and it's so cool. It's really detailed. You can see where it says one. Am someone's written thirteen feet one fifteen. Am fourteen feet one inch in this. Really lovely old penmanship tracking tied. Did people really do this. Twenty four hours a day every day of the year they did. They had technology. That actually made it easier though In the late eighteen hundreds they developed an automatic system which had this float that rested on the surface of the water and then fed information to kind of a pen that recorded the movement so then people just had to read off the values and put them into the ledgers and this was done in other places to lake near hillary island. The port of liverpool also has a really long running title record. That makes sense because this was the era of ships rights. Watercraft was the way that people and things got around. Yeah exactly you had a lot of ships going in and out of port and so they were shipping companies. That had to keep track of the tide so it can be done safely two day. Some of those old records are archived at the permanent service for mean sea level which is an organization in the uk that gathers ocean data worldwide Andy matthews a data scientists. There told me the data are pretty reliable. You know most of the time. Those woman over on point is a little hand square school saying they. They sweet because the Tyja for was sick. You get little insights now with him. Everybody needs a sick day right. Of course andy says they're trying to organize a bigger effort to find these records. Because you know since kind of obscure they're hard to find yet but it can be anywhere these kind of things now in libraries from people that we all kaisei done coin. Doug well they are. Yeah this is quite the quest and an even bigger issue. I imagine is that when they find them. The data is still stuck on those pages. Yeah his colleagues scanned about sixteen thousand pages. But the numbers are on the page and they haven't been digitized so they're really not usable by scientists. They're trying to use computers to do it through character recognition. But i mean you saw that writing right. It's kind of like the script and the formats can be really hard to decipher so india's hoping that the public will help he recently put the images on zoom verse. A website and so volunteers can kind of in and and read the numbers. Type them up. I love this approach. I mean we're all bored at home looking for something to do this pandemic so why. Not some historical data as tree right. Yeah i mean data entry for a greater good seriously but to get into the nitty gritty of it. Why exactly is an important to look at data from the eighteen. Hundreds to understand sea level rise today an into the future right. What does that matter. Yeah right. I mean it has to do with how complex sea-level rise is because it's been caused by a number of different things. I mean i. You got glacier's melting temperatures causes them to shrink and that water runs off into the ocean and the same thing is happening in greenland and antarctica. Where there are these massive ice sheets on the land and there's so much is melting in gigi tons tapping increasingly fast. And i know that oceans are also rising because the water itself is warming up and hotter things expand so the water slick taking up more space. Yep you got it and actually. This is kind of cool. Sea level rise did slow down in the nineteen sixties and seventies because that was the era of dam building around the world. When you know when these big reservoirs were being constructed. They held back so much water. It was actually measurable. Ooh that is so strange and it really shows how we humans do impact the oceans. That's like a tangible detail of how quickly we can do that. It's a huge scale. But it's not really a factor anymore because you know dams aren't really being built at the same rate these days got it. Yeah anyway since one thousand nine hundred there's been about eight inches of sea level rise and by the end of this century. We couldn't be looking at three to six feet of sea level rise or even higher depending on how much carbon humans emits but. that's globally. The water is rising at a different pace depending on where you are. Yeah how exactly does that work. Because wouldn't the phil evenly kind of like when you fill a bathtub. And here's where it gets a little weird. The earth is slowly changing slowly getting a different shape lake. You know when you've been sitting on the couch while and you kind of get up and the cushion rebounds like morphs back into its old shape. Yeah not all couches but sure theoretically Well okay that same thing happens to the earth's crust During the last ice age Kind of started waning. Eleven thousand years ago. There was a lot of ice on canada and greenland super heavy and was pushing down the earth's crust since that melted the crust has been slowly rebounding. And that's actually not good for the east coast especially around the mid atlantic region. Because you know it's on the same tectonic plates as canada and greenland and when one side goes up. The other side goes down So what you're saying is where i live on. The east coast is on the lower end of the see-saw basically your thinking about that slowly. I mean the east coast is seen more sea level rise than other parts of the country. And then there's a whole bunch of other things that can cause that to you. Know ocean currencies big things that span hundreds of miles in the ocean. They cost the water on one side of them to be higher on the other side. You know so. Because of currents and gravity the oceans themselves are just kind of lumpy which is why sea level rises different everywhere. I am learning so much right now. You're basically saying is that sea level rise is local essentially and if cities want a plan for this and figure out what an who is at risk they'll need tailor-made information for their location. Yeah that's where these historical records come in. You know they reveal what these geologic processes and ocean conditions are doing in each place right right and i signed us refine their computer models. Which are those high powered ways that we get forecast about climate change. I spoke to scientists. Tomas friedrich's at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory about this and he said local records really matter. If we don't have that information for these see to be like a few feet off the local records of sea level so especially when we try to projects like high water levels of like extremes sea levels that's how we call them It's very difficult to to get an accurate picture of that but there is a big issue with a historical records. They already have almost all of the ones that have been digitized. Come from europe and north america So what you're saying is we gotta find more places. More hillary islands so to speak with historical sea level data all around the world. Yeah and this is a problem across many kinds of climate data. actually the southern hemisphere hasn't been covered as well with things like whether stations and other kind of data collection historically So there's just this big effort to find these historical records outside of europe and the us in argentina. They're working to digitize records from nineteen o five that were taken at the port of raise But to go back farther in some countries it means looking at the records of former colonial powers that took control because when countries like the uk and germany and france extracted. Huge amount of resources from colonies often through force. They did it largely through shipping colonialism stealing and keeping a record of it yeah pretty much so right now in france the national hydrographic service is digitizing these title records from dozens of their former colonies from madagascar vietnam Some of those records though aren't as long running you know they were gathered. As part of geographic mapping or you know to study an area where they were putting in port project. But i spoke to one person who is working with the french to stitch together a longer running record dating back through his country's colonial history marbella unika for seafood unique is from cameroon and he's a phd student in france right. Now he started in german archives. Because that was the colonial power in the late. Eighteen hundreds until france took control so he's gathered the french records as well and then he the cameroon records after it became independent in nineteen sixty. Yeah that's really interesting. Project and just a clear example of how the legacy of colonialism continues to impact science today. Yeah yeah i mean. It's digging through. His legacy is how he's kind of finding these records And there's really only one other long-term record in africa and that's from the car senegal so he knows cameroon could be crucial for improving global climate models But it could also be really helpful for cameroon itself. Nieto's just told me that. The country's largest city douala right on the atlantic coast and estuary and it's extremely vulnerable to flooding already. I'm just last year. There was a huge flood that displays thousands after really heavy rains. So when you add sea level rise to that it just makes the flooding issue worse. So he's hopeful that the historical records he's finding will lead to more detailed forecasts about just how fast the ocean is rising there because twala like other cities needs to start preparing now communities need to decide whether to move out of the way or build some kind of protection and
Central African Republic: Surge in violence and displacement
"And insecurity in the central african republic or see a are linked to recent nationwide elections have forced more than two hundred thousand people from their homes under two months. Unhcr the un refugee agency also warned that tens of thousands of face dire living conditions. The democratic republic of the congo has taken in tens of thousands of refugees while more than thirteen thousand have reached. Cameroon chad and the republic of congo said unhcr spokesperson. Boris chesnokov we say these reports and estimates coming from local authorities that already ninety two thousand refugees are present inside. drc and they're scattered across forty localities. These are hard to reach remote areas and it's difficult to get assistance already. Scaling up disappoint but we need to mobilize more resources and more funds and this is exactly what we're calling for. May strategies are struggling in basic shelters located close to rivers where they face acute food shortages. Mr chesty cough said he added that they are dependent on catching fish.

Tennis Player to Watch: Evan Furness
"Guy. I want to talk about today. Who i think has been if not the best player one of the five best players at the it level since the start of the twenty twenty season. And that's evan furnace who you look at his career trajectory for those of you. Who don't know about edmund furnace furnace twenty two years old going to turn twenty three in the frenchman had a career high in the junior rankings of number thirty six so again. That's not gonna blow you out of the water right. Furnace was in this junior slam champion. Who much was expected of. Yeah he made a third round of junior wimbledon in twenty sixteen lost his devan. ac- pass. Yeah he made you know play. A bunch of the junior slammed had good enough results to become a top fifty junior in the world. But how many top fifty. Former top fifty. Juniors in the world have never heard of pro circuit. The answer is quite a few and you know for furnace. It was steady linear progression. You look at you know. He played his first pro tour match all the way back in two thousand fourteen when he was you know a i think sixteen or fifteen or sixteen years old played. One match. Didn't win it. You know you start to look at as he went through the years in two thousand fifteen he was able to play twenty matt or twenty one matches when eleven and ten. That's he's in twenty sixteen. He goes sixteen and thirteen. You know so again. steady progression. His first full season as twenty seventeen. He goes forty two and twenty eight in pro events during that season now he did not believe make any pro finals at twenty seventeen season but pretty quickly found himself making the jump off to To playing a full time to schedule you look at what he was able to accomplish. A four evan furnished during his first few seasons twenty eighteen he makes his first two It finals he bought ends up winning in portugal. Next up david gaz in cameroon. In the end of november he ends up losing two skandal mansuri than hong kong. He ends up knocking off. Julian lens makes another final during the twenty thousand nine hundred season although it is safe to say twenty nineteen you look at the results. Furnish was able to put together. That season You know relatively unsuccessful compared to previous years human thirty three and twenty nine during that twenty nine nine season now during that twenty nineteen season. I believe he also played his largest amount of challenge matches and challenger level events. He really struggled during one thousand nine hundred eighty play you know. You look in his career in his cert- currently six thousand nine hundred nine in challenger events during the course of his career during that twenty nine th season he played i wanna say ten challenger matches and i believe he went to in two hundred eight in those ten challenger matches so that's why his record fell a little bit. He started to try to make the jump at the end of twenty nineteen but then in twenty twenty in the midst of a pandemic given it was very difficult to find playing opportunities. And if you were in the vomit zone three hundred five hundred which normally you probably get into challenge qualities given the limited playing opportunities. You're lucky to find futures events to play last year. That's what a furnace had to spend a lot of time doing and guess what that is. Where evan furnished thrived. You look at what he has done. Since the start of the twenty twenties
"cameroon" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM
