Author Eric Cassell's Book 'Animal Algorithms' Is Full of Extraordinary Information

"Brand folks. I'm talking to Eric castle, CA SS ELL. He's the author of animal algorithms. Full of extraordinary information. Eric, I was just reading here that one species of migratory shorebird breeds in the Arctic regions, it's called the bar tailed God wit. I love these the names of these birds. But you say you write that they're four subspecies that migrate to different regions with the most interesting being the Alaskan godwit, which migrates between either New Zealand or Australia in the southern hemisphere to western Alaska in the northern hemisphere. And this is what kills me. You write the migratory route consists of a series of non stop flights. One bar tailed godwit that was tagged with a satellite tracking device was recorded flying nonstop for 6000 350 miles from New Zealand to China. Then after feeding for 5 weeks, it flew another 4013 miles to the Alaska Peninsula even more impressive impressively the same bird flew the return route to New Zealand covering 7189 miles non stop in 8 days that's an average speed of about 35 mph for close to 200 hours. I mean, the book is full of stuff like this, and it just can not help fill you with awe and wonder at some of these creatures whose names we've never heard before. Yeah. Some of those behaviors of particularly these long distance migrating birds is, like you say, it's pretty amazing. But it's amazing for a number of different reasons. One is the navigation ability that we've already talked about. But the other is the physical capabilities of these birds to fly thousands of miles nonstop. And what happens is that the birds going through a process, prior to migrating, there's a lot of physiological changes that take place and one of which is obviously they must eat a lot of food to store up enough calories for the journey. It's called curveball loading. It's called carbo

'Animal Algorithms' Author Eric Cassell on Bees' Miraculous Solar Navigation Skills

"According to your book, Eric, you say that bees. Are able to guess the sun's azimuth, that that they are bees are using the sun to navigate, but you say that apparently bees and ants can manage the necessary computations to do this since it's been shown that they still know the sun's position even when it is not directly visible. So how can a beer and ant know where the sun is if they can't see it even with their tiny brains and eyes? So the way they're doing that apparently and again, this is something we don't fully understand. But there's enough information to know they aren't doing this. They have an algorithm that's programmed into their brain so that they can know the actual location of the sun throughout the day. And then they take that into account when they observe the position of the sun, they know where it actually is as when I use the term asthma, that's a technical term for just the angle of the sun. Any time during the day and then when they're trying to fly a certain direction, let's try to say they're trying to fly northeast. Well, they detect. They know the position of the sun where it should be. And then they know the fact that the time of day it is, let's say it's 2 p.m., they know what 2 p.m. the sun is located in a certain location laterally. And then they use that information to compute the path that they want to fly, let's say, northeast. That's a pretty sophisticated mathematical trick and algorithm in the brain of

"In his own house next to a safe sleeping place the presence of trees thickly crowned with foliage is an essential requisite for the comfortable lodgements of parrots this.

That sometime stark in the air says the prince phone vidh. It is not uncommon to see parrots sitting motionless upon the dead branches at the very top of a tree uttering cheerful screams. Esto water streams off their plumage. There may be dense foliage and thick boughs immediately beneath under which they might easily find shelter but they prefer the warm shower and seem to enjoy the wedding. No sooner however has the rain ceased then they appear equally desirous to dry themselves and to rid their plumage up the moisture. In fine weather it is quite otherwise they then decidedly prefer the shelter of the thickest trees either as a protection from the burning heat of the sun or for the purpose of concealment and hastened to them at once on the slightest alarm they know what an excellent protection to them.

Restaurant workers converge in Washington DC park for Labor Day rally

"While most of us took time today to rest during Labor Day Week, and others were using it as a chance to raise some issues about the economy. A rally took place in Malcolm X Park in northwest Washington, where people listen to speakers concerned about the pandemics impact on the restaurant industry. The crowd heard stories of restaurant workers troubles. Mickey Doyle Casella bartender, a member of the activist group Restaurant Opportunity Center. His workers are facing risks from diners. Some don't wear masks, even when they're not actively eating or drinking great, but a lot of them think they can do whatever they want, because they think that the customer is always right. Del Cassell says. Restaurant staffers are working harder these days than ever and fearing for the future, a lot more walking. It's really long hours. Really hot out Patio season is gonna be coming to an end. How are we gonna survive? The demonstrators say there should be extra pay for restaurant workers on the front lines of the pandemic.

Police Offering Drug Recovery Help: 'We Can't Arrest Our Way Out Of This Problem'

"To address soaring opioid overdose as police officers trying to tone down the law enforcement to offer recovery help and in Massachusetts which has the country's ninth highest overdose death rate the approach may be catching up with convention drug users to accept help it's not easy for me when the public radio Karen brown reports Emily LaTavia test to sign visitors into her recovery program in a grand Victorian house K. R. Y. N. K. A. R. E. N. and she's been living here since getting out of detox last fall we get twenty four forty eight seventy two hour passes every weekend at twenty nine she doesn't mind the restrictions she's grateful she's alive to follow them after a decade of addiction I had gone down a pretty dark path at that time look obvious traces her turn around to a nine one one call last year high on heroin she'd stolen her mother's car and when she returned it a few hours later officer John Cassella of where Massachusetts was waiting in the past he might've immediately read her her rights because for the longest time the whole idea was no arrest arrest but that's not what happened he gently tapped on the car window and said he was there to help and he wasn't the stereo typical officer who was going to arrest me or get me in trouble slowly learning that we can't arrest a way out of this problem I sat in my car actually close the window on him a couple times and then I opened it a crack like what do you want and he stood there patiently and he said you know I'm here to help you I want to help you and I would roll out my window and look the other way through the glass officer Cassell explained he was part of a new partnership between police and public health and asked if he could try another time he came back to my house again and again and again Cassell is used to rejection he was the first in his small towns police department to get trained in this approach the idea is when officers get a drug related call could be fast could be an overdose they put aside the hand cuffs and just offer help anything from a warm bed for the night to a ride to detox at the very least they'll give out the overdose rescue drugs nor can and talk about how to stay alive it's kind of weird for a police officer to be talking to somebody Hey if we can use heroin for use drugs use it this way to make sure you're not alone make sure there's knocking on hand weird or not more than a hundred cities in Massachusetts have developed versions of this approach many with state or federal funding there are a handful of similar programs in other states but even as police get used to this non judgmental role it's not always an easy sell to drug users some people are very open and I'll talk to other people when I get out of here I don't want to help you know stupid cops get out of here whatever Jeffrey Goulet is an officer in south Hadley Massachusetts not everyone's at that point in their life whether they want to stop so that's another thing that we learned just the way people think as far as the people who are using addiction researcher Alexander Wally is evaluating the approach for the centers for disease control he says it's important not to push treatment too quickly especially right after an overdose when the brain is in withdrawal to have that revelation usually it's gonna take a little more time and and a little more reflection that can mean weeks or months if ever before someone accepts an offer of help they almost all say yes but I would say about half of them actually mean at the beginning there was a lot of me chasing people around officer Cassella eventually talked Emily look obvious into meeting him at a donut shop where he introduced her to a recovery coach name Susan and they stayed in touch but a few months later she overdosed at her father's house she saved herself by using the nor can they left with her and that's when she agreed to let them help her get into rehab for me it was like a tornado went through and all that was left in the center was me in like a vassal land of ruin you know and having Susan and officer Cassella there it's life

"Upon which it preys are often exceedingly minute sometimes above and sometimes below the level of the swallows course and yet they are seeing and captured without any Lucien of the purchase rate at which the bird is flying may more anyone who attentively watches one of these birds skip being over a meadow may perceive that it will capture two or even three insects in such quick succession as to convince him at the swallow must have had an eye upon them all at once and yet they were caught as it were in a moment they're admirable contrivance peculiar to the feathered race is the existence of a thin semi transparent veil which when requisite you can be instantaneously drawn over the front of the I this apparatus generally known as the nicktator membrane is useful for a variety of purposes it sweeps over the I two cleanse it from dust it diffuses the tears which keep it bright and a polished it will act as a screen to shut out the two great intensity of light saw that with its assistance the Eagle can confront the sun even at noon day it will likewise defend the I from sutter injuries and yet even when drawn curtain over the pupil not shut out the light the moodiest manner in which this membrane lies folded up in the inner corner of the eye and the quickness with which it executes its purpose are known to every observer but what is equally admirable though not quite so obvious is the employment of two kinds of material and the combination of two kinds of force by which the movements of this membrane are affected it is not as an ordinary case uses by the action of two antagonist muscles the one pulling it forward and the other backward but the membrane south being elastic is capable of being drawn out like a thin sheet of India rubber and returning to its former position and when the force acting upon it is removed such being its nature in order to adapt it for its office it is connected by attendant with a muscle situated at the back part of the I this tendon though strong is so nine s not to obstruct the site even when it passes across the pupil all and the muscle which moves it being situated deeply within the orbit derives from its situation the advantage of not only being secure from injury but of being out of the way which is hardly would have been in any position that could be assigned to it in the front of the I where its function really lies mm-hmm when this muscle contracts the membrane by means of communicating tendon is instantly drawn as it were the red over the transparent cornea and when the muscle ceases to act the elasticity of the membrane is sufficient to breed back into its former position see figure six showing the eye of an owl mm-hmm but this is not all in the arrangement of the muscle which though placed behind the eye draws the nicotine eating membrane in front event there is what justly deserves to be called a marvelous piece of mechanical contrivance the extent of contraction necessary to draw the membrane over the whole front of the visual Oregon would require much longer muscle then would have been placed in such a situation in order to meet this difficulty the tendon which draws forth the nick debating members gene is made to pass through loop in another muscle as represented in the next woodcut figure seven where it is evident that by the simultaneous contraction of both these muscles the extent of their action withdrawn the dictating membrane over the I is considerably increased neither is this the only advantage derived from so in genius contrivance were it not for the plan adopted the tendon of the muscle would press upon the optic nerve and thus materially interfere with vision an inconvenience that by the existing arrangement is totally prevented mm-hmm devices like the whereby special machinery is introduced for special purposes speak for themselves uh-huh with knowledge their beauty and in them we recognize it once the wisdom and the goodness of the Creator you're the sense of smell in birds has afforded subject matter for much discussion and Great Obscurity Stiller exists with reference to the extent to which they make use of their own factory organs.

"Apps be desirable to preface his remarks by a few general observations concerning the structure of the beautiful creatures that for the subjects of his teaching inasmuch as it is obviously desirable to have clear notions concerning the machinery employees before its adaptation to its intended uses can be made manifest and further because in the study of ornithology not as in every other branch of natural history there are certain conventional terms that may require explanation before words used in describing an object are intelligible to the uninitiated the bird is an inhabited went of the air in the fullest sense of the expression the atmosphere is emphatically this fear of its activity it mounted as it would a ladder it sales through it in triumph and rides upon the winds as upon a fleet steed moreover it is the atmosphere itself which endows the feathered aerial with such capabilities and it is in the perfection of his respiration that we must search for an explanation of his wonderful achievements the muscular activity every animal is intimately dependent upon the efficiency of its breathing apparatus upon the freedom with which the final element finds it mission to the blood which it is destined to renovate and upon which it confers those qualities so inseparably connected did with the elimination of increased temperature and the figure of muscular action in this respect as we you'll see immediately the feathered races surpass all living creatures with the exception perhaps of the member I of the insect creation the lungs of a bird are not suspended like those of a quadra bed within a circle described chest orthographic cavity in such a manner as to become inflated by each inspiration they are rather to be described as soft porous and highly vascular organs through which the air passes as through the career of a sponge the movements of the chest upon which depend the inspiration and expiration of the AD MS feerick fluid may be compared to those of a bellows continually employed in taking in and expelling the surrounding element by a mechanism represented in the accompanying figure figure one the framework of the chest test consisting of the ribs and of the breast bone is so put together that at each inspiration it can be raised as shown the drawing thus materially enlarging the veracity chamber just as the upper board of an ordinary bellows is raised the purpose of taking in the air but in this case the surrounding element instead of entering through a valve defended office rushes down the wind pipe and through the movable sponge like lungs permitting the wide passages is with which they are perforated and not only filling the entire thorax but penetrating into the interior of the bury bones which are left Maryland for its reception the mechanism whereby expiration is affected is equally simple onto its former position the inspired air is again forced to pass through the lungs and make its escape by means of the wind pipe into every part of the system the blood is finalized to the greatest possible extent its temperature is raised until the heat of the body of a bird is far greater than that of an ordinary quadrupeds and it's Talapity is proportionately exhaust tasted consequently asked the blood circulates through the system it carries with it heat and life in superabundance the energies of the entire system are roused to the outermost the fibers of free muscle quiver with intense life like a st mentioned working under high pressure thus enabling the Falcon to cleave the skies with the velocity of a falling thunderbolt and not only qualifying the swallow for its rapid flight but ebeling it to achieve its wonderful migrations this admission of air into every part of the system serves not only a fan the vital flame and rows the energies of the bird to an extraordinary degree of tension it likewise assist in giving buoyancy to its movements burying it upward as the guests does a balloon for it is evident that the air received into the body being raised to a temperature corresponding to the heat of its blood the specific gravity of the bird is proportionately diminished.
