Dr. Ryan Cole on Monkeypox and What It Means for All of Us

"Doctor Cole tell us, what is monkeypox? What is the threat that it poses to most Americans? Monkeypox is a orthopoxvirus. It's in it's an epox family camelpox cowpox, monkey pox, smallpox is the one people think of. So again, this is a fear campaign trying to make everybody afraid. They modeled this at the nuclear threat initiative, which has founded and co owned by the cofounder of Facebook. Just like they projected COVID with event two O one, monkeypox is we've known about it since 1958. There's two strains West Africa strain and a Central African strain. The West Africa strain is what circulating right now. If you don't engage in homosexual sex, your risk of monkeypox is about zero. So it spread at a rave in the Canary Islands off Portugal and some big raves in Europe. It's really the gay bisexual population that it's sticking to. It is not very transmissible. It is very treatable. There was actually a patient in Dallas that had it last year. We get outbreaks of monkeypox around the world every year. They're just scare mongering with it. And it's really staying in that gay homosexual bisexual population. And it's not aerosolized virus. Is this strange slightly different from earlier strains, the 2018 strain that went around, Singapore, Israel, UK. It has about 50 mutations, which was highly unusual. We know Wuhan was actually synthesizing monkeypox so they could come up with a test for monkeypox, the lab in Wuhan, ironically. But monkeypox is low risk. And this is the West Africa strain. This is the less deadly strain. The irony too is that it looks a lot like chickenpox and shingles, which obviously there are a lot of people getting chickenpox and shingles because of their immune suppression from their COVID

Say that there will be an explosion of water and steam. It would create a dense white cloud and this plume is caused by the lava flow due to its extreme heat. But the molten rock law also trigger chemical reaction mainly of chlorine which can irritate the skin eyes and respiratory system according to the us geological service there are four main dangers linked to the ocean entry of lava the sudden collapse of new land and adjacent sea clips into the ocean. That's one to we have to worry about the explosions and triggered by the collapse waves of scalding hot water. Washing on shore and the steam plume and the worry that steam plume me is that that steam plume would rain hydrochloric acid and tiny volcanic glass particles down wind from the entry point.

The History of Spanish Africa

"I say that there are parts of spain and africa. I'm not trying to be tricky and play with words. I'm not saying that. Spain used to have colonies in africa. Although that's true. I'm also not trying to define the canary islands. Which are part of spain off the coast of africa as being in africa. I mean in the most literal sense possible. That part of spain is in africa. There are two very small spanish cities located on the peninsula which are on the african mainland ordering morocco and malia and their very existence as you probably would expect are due to historical quirks happenstance due to geography. Spain has always had a close relationship with africa finishes based in carthage in. What is today. Tunisia established settlements on the spanish coast. The roman province of hispania was part of a greater empire that included all of north africa. Which bordered the mediterranean after the roman empire fell islamic moors from north africa conquered and controlled spain for over seven hundred years. So there's always been a back and forth between north africa in the peninsula and malia both spanish territories in africa have different yet similar histories despite being about one hundred and thirty miles apart from each other. Sita is located directly across the sea from gibraltar. So if you ever want stump someone asks them. What country lies. Directly south of gibraltar and what country lies. North of gibraltar. answer is the same. Spain is on both ends. Sierra makes the counterpart to gibraltar for the pillars of hercules which the ancient names of the two promontories which guarded the strait of gibraltar. As with most everything in the region it has an ancient history. Carthage martina and numidians all control the area. Before the romans the you me add caliphate controlled it for centuries when the caliphate of cordoba fell in ten thirty one it was then passed between various north african kingdoms with support from various kingdoms in the iberian peninsula.

"Of all i will duck into my local cafe and get a cup of coffee. We'll see how much a cup of coffee costs. Let's sit down. And i'll run through some comparisons with cost of living in spain and other cities as around the world. I went out and opponents. Room tara potter so i got my cup of coffee. I ordered a which is a short coffee. Little splash of milk. My coffee came to the princely sum of one euro and forty cents pretty much suspended price madrid and spain in here with the social distancing measures in effect. I'm just telling you look man chalkboard to see what they thought on offer for food. The on as i think the average price of a fairly representative i would say Typical baas around the campus little on the average price seems to be eight or nine years for iraq. You on another point. Generous portions of food which can be shared between two or three people. I suppose so. We've got seven euros with bob. Problems seven plates of hamilton and kosovo seven euros of seven-year-olds snails. Got gotta call is six. We got sandwiches. Ideals were about four euros. Three hundred fifty super affordable. Some things that do surprise of which. I consider a little bit pricey i suppose is some seafood can be expensive even though spain is a nature of seafood consumers. But certainly things like Octopus for example. I can see arafura of purple. I like data which is a galaxy in style octopus fifteen-year-olds for plate octopus got up. There chip it on his which some of my favorites like frying baby cussing fish. I suppose and eleven euros for play to chop beatles lusa which are absolutely delicious. I must say if we're talking about beer and wine in our like this where i am now about growth little kanye which is about two hundred mils of beer. It's going to cost something like one. Thirteen one forty. Maybe one fifty a large science at aa probably about two years to fifty so very affordable wine around the same price for a small glass of wine fairly normal local one. I suppose it's gonna cost you between one eight hundred eighty something like that but why wanted to run through the kind of ranking of spanish cities in terms of their affordability living the cost of living. It's a question. I've been asked quite a lot in the past from listeners. Interested in moving to spain. How much things cost rents accommodation utility bills and back kind of thing and this is run through the list of cities in terms of cost of living as twenty twenty. According to my research the most expensive city in terms of cost of living is actually be bad. And that doesn't surprise me. I've heard that me. Bow son sebastian. Up in the north of spain expensive cities number two on the list so the second most expensive city in spain is cheap. Celona and again. This does not surprise me mean i suppose. Many people would imagine that madrid being capital city would be more expensive now. It seems to me rental prices and property prices between madrid and barcelona fairly similar course does tend to be a little bit more expensive in. Barcelona is your daily cost of living. The third most expensive city is of course madrid which makes sense for a capital city european capital again. I've got to say in my experience of european capital cities. Madrid has got to be up there with some of the most affordable capital cities that you could live in fourth most expensive as photographer number. Five is pulmoddai orca number six on the list surprisingly granada down and luthier the seventh. Most expensive is number. Eight is valencia. Now that's interesting series so far down the list of expensive cities because it is spain's third largest city so considering it signs an affordable city to live in number nine on the list is santa cruz veterinary on the island. The canarian island of tenor eighth number. Ten is seville number. Eleven on the list is malika a number twelve. My list is less thomas on the canary islands. Right then so. I'm going to make a little comparison. Classic sound of the someone pumping on the whole and outside the bar because there is some kind of truck which is stopped in the middle of the street. Let's hope that doesn't continue. Let's look living cost of living comparison between london and madrid for example pseudo coating to my research you would need around two thousand eight hundred sixty three pounds all three thousand three hundred and forty three euros in madrid to maintain the same standard of life that you can have which i need that would happen. Descended into some chaos and some of the guys in the bar won't stop the heads out the door to to see what's going on out there say place at half past twelve in the afternoon drinking. A cup of coffee never announces already on the wine. I met there still a little bit early for me right. Let's see if i can get this out. So the cost of living comparison between london and madrid. One trying to say is that to maintain the same standard of life that you can have in london with four thousand seven hundred you would only need two thousand eight hundred sixty three pounds to have the same standard of life

The history of potatoes

"Like corn and tomatoes, the potato was born in the Americas before it conquered the world, they come from the spine of mountains that run all the way down from from Chile all the way up through the Andes and really into the Rocky Mountains Rebecca Earl is a historian at the University of Warwick where she focuses on the history of food and on the history of Spanish America and potatoes are bang in the middle of her ven diagram potatoes are from the. Andes that much is clear. The earliest wild potato ancestor that's been identified is from the shores of Lake. TITICACA on the Peruvian side but there are a lot of potato varieties claimed by a lot of folks in the region. In fact, there have been some recent disputes between Chile and Peru over attempts by Peru to patent whole variety number of potatoes as being Peruvian and of it and part of our national patrimony. So where they originate doesn't sit so neatly. Onto national frontiers, wild potatoes bread, and down the America's they've even been found in Utah but it wasn't until about eight thousand years ago. The people in the Andes started to domesticate these kind of unpromising marble sized super bitter tubers. Potatoes came to form a really important part of life in the Andes because they can grow an incredibly inhospitable conditions I've traveled in the Andes. In Peru and not only did I get intense altitude sickness but people farming there look like. They're hanging off the side of the mountains the Andes. Are Super Tall and super steep. It's just rough terrain for growing things in the whole of Peru only something like three percent of the land is classified suitable for growing crops compared to twenty one percent of the US but for the potato, no problem at flourishes in those conditions. So yeah, the potato was a big deal in the region, but it was still the food of the people it was essential not special. Unlike the other big American staple corn planting of the maize crop was something that the Inca himself oversaw of the ruler himself planted symbolic wro of as as part of a big ceremony and there was a team priests who would prey over the course of the year to ensure good maize harvest and it was a whole lot of ritual associated with with maize the empire. was not very interested in potatoes. They saw potatoes kind of lowly everyday food that didn't have great spiritual resonance Mrs Going to be a theme with the potato that said on that lowly local level. The potato did have spiritual resonance. It was a day. T called the potato mother who looked over the potato harvest and ensured that it grew well. So it was very important not. Just in terms of Diet. But in terms of kind of ritual spiritual life on village, this was something the Spanish conquistadors picked up on right away when they showed up in the fifteen hundreds. So they said Oh these the people here eat a kind of route, which is the bread of the Indians as they put it they were always comparing it back and forth to. European. Bread they said it is their bread which meant it was the staple. It was the backbone of the Diet that said the Spaniards knew it didn't taste like bread. This is how a Spaniard described the potato. It's the very first written description that survives potatoes are something like Spanish truffles aside from being a bit bigger and not as tasty. They said potatoes, they are a thing. Like chestnut or a bit like a truffle oil parsnips they grow underground there were route and they eat them the way that we parsnips of the way that we eat chestnuts. So they quickly drew connections between. A variety of different things? Some root vegetables like Parsnips, turnips, and somethings like chestnuts that we might not think a potato is exactly like the texture is not on similar. If you bake a chestnut, you end up with something a bit mealy but like a potato Europeans brought this new truffle chestnut food back to Europe with them although we don't know exactly when like many crops that have spread around the world people didn't always record when they first saw it. It seems like the potato landed on the shores of Europe somewhere in. The second half of the fifteen hundreds I to the Canary Islands and then to mainland Spain and from there they spread across Europe and around the world. But in terms of how potatoes caught on, there's an old story that has stuck around for a long time. It's almost become conventional wisdom and it's that the peasants in Europe were pretty reluctant to give potatoes a try the old story is that peasants are inherently conservative and will not do anything new. They will not try unfamiliar cultivation techniques they won't eat new food they're they're basically backward-looking and highly superstitious and regard the novel with skepticism. So there's an old story that says peasants looked at potatoes and they said this food is not in the Bible we will not eat it and they said our grandparents didn't grow this food and we will not grow it added to that. There was the unfortunate fact that the potato is part of. The. Same Botanical family of the deadly nightshade. So that's kind of suspect and the potato doesn't grow from seed like a normal crop instead you so little bits of the potato the ground I mean, why would you trust plant like that? Europeans didn't understand this. They thought it was the food of the devil. There's a whole lot of old writing from decades. By historians who say that, Europeans looked potatoes and when they saw them, they saw something freaky on weird.

"They also kitchen they now change their mind. What is disabled people and how to leave with disabled people, and that home ads is how able bodied people overcome their biases. For the world. I'm Jason Strother in Seoul. British holiday makers in Spain are unhappy bunch today Brits flock there for a warm getaway after the UK lifted its quarantine restrictions on travelers flying in from Spain. But then this weekend surprise. The British government re imposed a two week quarantine on people coming back from Spain after cases of covert 19 spiked in regions like Barcelona. Now, Tens of thousands of Brits are facing a quarantine at home that they did not expect after their Spanish vacations come to an end. One of them is Stephan Hughes, who spoke with me earlier today. So right now on a beach in custody in the tsunami area, where it's really popular with British tourists, you know the beach is full of beach bars and families enjoying themselves as those restaurants were looking to see a really lovely destination. You could see in the background as well. It's so nice to finally May be able to go away. I feel safer here than I do in England right now. Did you expect this would happen? Did you have any idea that these new quarantine restrictions would be reimposed? Actually not. I mean, I knew it. I knew there are restrictions in place for other countries. But you know, that's where our trust in the government lies. They tell us one thing on we say, OK, cool that they're telling us. It's safe to go away and I know that's what my girlfriend thought. Let's go away. That's trying escape the horrors of the lock down that we've had to go through. But I think if I knew that Spain was on some Kind of increase, then it would have definitely changed my decision. I mean, lots of people have been worried about how well lockdowns have worked and what happens after lockdowns air lifted and then seeing them reimposed. Was that not a consideration as you were planning this trip Tio Canary Islands until I think after being locked down for so long, the only thing you could do is be optimistic about things and just go, you know? Hey, if the government have have said it's OK to go away, and you know, the flights are back online, the main source of income here so the locals is tourism. So you know, thinking a cz. Well, that I can go to a place I've been to before and support these guys who are you actually know? So you know some of these people The beach bars and some of the staff in the restaurants and the hotels I regularly visit. How are those Spanish business owners responding to the news? They're really frustrated because everything here especially in Tenerife, I can't speak for the rest of Spain. You know, the Canary Islands. The covert 19 cases over here have been incredibly compared to mainland Spain. It's a shame because they're doing that their utmost Tio open up safely to bring tourists back safely. We have to wear a mask when we're out of Now on become physically socially distance all the tables in the restaurant more than two meters apart. All the staff are wearing masks. You have to disinfect your hands when you go into a restaurant. Do you think the British government might make an exception for the islands? I understand that the British government have to act swiftly on they have to make decisions based on data. However, in this case, I think they've made to rush decision because not only has it it's going to affect flights coming out. I think a lot of the airlines have already canceled flights to the Canary Islands in the Balearic Islands on DH If they do go back on themselves, and they do make it Action. I believe there are talks happening then bring us great, But we have the data. We have the ability to make more calculated decisions, and I just don't really understand why they didn't do that in the first place. Stephon. He is speaking with us from his holiday in the Spanish Canary Islands. I'm sorry about the news about the new quarantine restrictions, but I really hope you and your girlfriend enjoy the rest of your vacation. Thank you. I think we will..

Why Is Carmine, a Dye Made from Bugs, So Popular?

"Red Velvet cake and strawberry ice cream aren't only in the. They'll satisfy your sweet tooth. They likely share common ingredient made from a not so common source that gives them their red to pink Hue. That's Carmen a natural Red Dye, also labelled as cockatiel extract, e, One, twenty or natural, red dye four, and it owes its beauty to a teeny tiny bug, the female coach Neil Bug to be precise. In addition to its possible gross out factor, this tasteless FDA approved extract has a history full of. and. Intrigue a Betsy Ross even used this bright red dye to make red stripes on the very first American flag. The Koch Neil is a slate bug that feeds on prickly pear. Plants grown throughout Mexico South America southwestern United States, and the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain. The male Cockatiel plays its own unique role in nature, but it's the wingless legless female that interests dye makers. If you go looking for her, you won't find her vibrant red bounty on display. The female Koch Neal's grey exterior is covered in a white powder that protects her from predators as well as the scorching sun. And since the juice from CACTI her only source of nutrition, she boroughs in his. A bit stubborn about releasing her hold. In order to harvest the Koch Neil, the prickly pear pads are cut and brought to factories so that the bugs can be pulled out and processed, but it takes some serious people power. Approximately seventy thousand continentals are needed to create just one pound of die. That's a little less than half a kilo. Once harvested bugs are dried ground and mixed alcohol, solution or other compounds like borax. They give way to a vibrant long-lasting die that can be used to make colors from scarlet purple to pink to Peach. have been used to color everything from textiles to pottery, since the Neolithic period or New Stone Age with the majority, sourced from vegetables, plants and trees. Bugs have had their place to not only the Koch. Neil, another elusive die associated with wealth enroll status. Tyrian purple was made from the glands of snails. Neil bug is native to Mesoamerica. The AZTECS are believed to be the first to use Carmen to fill their lives with stunning shades of Crimson, when Spanish colonizers arrived in the Americas learned about Carmen and built enormous wealth by monopolizing the cockatiel market Spain kept the source of the color secret, and even made export the die a legal punishable by death. Coveted by the wealthy. The Royal Family is in the artist's crossed Europe. This die created fertile ground for contention. Those cumbersome and secretive production methods certainly made Carmen expensive. The car itself was an explosive part of Carmen's mystery and popularity. We spoke with Amy Butler. Greenfield author of the perfect read via email. She said red is the color of blood fired that end desire, and we can't help it. Respond to it on many levels. It makes her eyes dilate, and our breath come faster, and it's freighted with symbolic meaning. Also there are very few natural dyes that make a lasting bright true read so good ones had the value of rarity. Ounce ounce. Kacha new is the most powerful natural red dye in the world. That's why it was prized. When industrialization arrived in the mid eighteen hundreds, the demand for textiles increased dramatically and created a need for more cost effective dies. Chemists began to use petroleum and coal to formulate synthetic ones ultimately reducing the need for the Cockatiel bug. The shift towards synthetics pushed Carmen to the background, but it didn't disappear, and now it's making a comeback. Showing up on ingredient lists for anything from cake POPs to lipstick. Greenfield said when reports started linking synthetic grads to cancer and hyperactivity, and as people started taking an interest in natural foods in general, the market for catch. Neil began to rebound. So if Carmen is a natural product without the negative long-term effects of why did the coffee giant starbucks along with numerous other companies? Stop using it to add colour to their products. Well Carmen is safe for the majority of people can cause an allergic reaction, and besides that safety concern folks like Vegetarians vegans and people who keep kosher helped advocate for the change, but no matter whether you find eating a bug, appalling, fascinating or dangerous for such a tiny insect. The Koch Neil Bug has certainly left a vivid mark on culture, beating attractions, the beauty and power of red.

The geography The Flora and fauna is very very different to what certainly I'm used to in central Spain Canary Islands of a population of around a two point. One million inhabitants and they are quite a major tourist destination with over twelve million visitors per year The main tourist islands being Tenerife's Gran Canaria Forever Tura and lands that rotate people go there.

I see why the government hasn't taken Chamba steps in this man, unless they're afraid that. The. People just won't react as a now, they'll they'll say, hey, they'll just get rid of everything. And the economy goes into dumps. And then they haven't got the money. They'll what they want. So it's obvious that. The things that allegedly going on what area fifty one room lake actually true some of it. But not all of it. The extraterrestrial parts is not really what's currently going on their back. They've back engineered some crashed craft did indeed happened like the Roswell thing, but there's no extraterrestrials working in any of these places carrying their little lunch trays around under area, fifty one or anything. This is part of the disinformation too preoccupied people was that which is unreal. As you said what a shocker the real stuff is challenging enough that sure is let's go to Walton Pennsylvania now. Hey, Walter, go ahead. Hi, Georgina goes to say, it's always great to be only two George. Thank you, sir. And Georgia missed a horn, great conversation lists. I just want to point out that we have we have to be careful when differentiating between science fiction and science and stuff. Man has always had a fertile imagination. Going back to ancient times. It can be argued that stuff. The book of revelation is actually an early form of science fiction. And then of course, you have people like no stood dominance in the modern near the nineteenth century. We had people like Jules Verne and h g wells. And then, of course, in Georgia as a as a radio man, you know, about Orson Welles in this story. Nineteen thirty perpetrated the hoax war on the world's scared. The death out of everybody you heard it. Exactly. Right. Needless to say we had the Roswell incident supposedly at nineteen forty seven. And. Fifty one we had the great science fiction movie. Starring with Hollywood, we had the daily yours still. And I just want to point out that stuff. You know, we as men variable has violated h we have fertile imagination. So we have to be you know, unguarded. Differentiating between science fiction, and science fact, of course, thank you. And of course, Billy has been accused sometimes that they aren't real as a hoax. He doesn't seem to fight back. He doesn't have to I guess it doesn't have to. And and as I sit in the very beginning of the show, George Joe TISCO article, which is on my blog, basically has ended the skeptical challenge because he's a military man who was a skeptic. He approached this as you should, you know, scientists well, one of the guys that they spoke to scientists said, well, you know, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I said, actually that's not true. First of all, we have extrordinary evidence been vetted, but what was extraordinarily about the earth's going around the sun you go back five hundred years. That's extrordinary all that is necessary with any claims any is to apply the scientific methodology, and then you will determine whether the claims are accurate truthful factual or they're not forget your prejudices. They don't like to hear that. Because when they say that they have. Prejudice. Anybody? That's servewell extraordinary claims. Your extraordinary evidence..
