"Warmer oceans are putting stress on corals and causing many of them to turn white or bleach but some corals under stress are instead becoming strangely colorful turning brilliant neon pink yellow purple or Blue Day. Gift this very vibrant coloration which really Blows your wife your vitamin heads. The University of Southampton's Coral Reef Laboratory in the UK. He said he was seeing photos. And reports of these brightly colored corals but no one knew was happening so his lab experimentally bleached corals to find out. I though it's important to understand that. Corals aren't really single organism. There are symbiotic. Duo a partnership between an algae and Coral. So it's a two completely different organisms working together to create something which they couldn't achieve by himself the algae live inside the coral where they get shelter and nutrients and the corals reap the benefits of photosynthesis but when the scientists exposed corals to warmer water. They watched as the corals symbiotic partners. The algae slowly abandoned the coral skeleton usually. That's what results in bleaching but in some cases without the photosynthetic algae there to absorb incoming light more of the light was bouncing around inside the coral's tissue and the researchers observed the corals producing neon pigments in response. The pigments seemed to be a natural sunscreen and those colorful areas appeared to attract the algae back the pink colored areas they repopulated fastest Symbionese and also the and had higher for synthetic efficiency which could be canessa indicator of the health. The results are in the Journal. Current biology says the flashy neon colors only appear with mild levels of stress. Too Hot in the corals can't cope but if you do happen to see corals flashing neon colors. It's a good sign. They're fighting back and fighting to be noticed by their algae partners.

How some doctors ended up prescribing fewer pills

"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd. Yata used to be when doctors prescribe a drug. They'd open up a a book summarizing drugs and dosages or go by memory for the common stuff but nowadays now you can type in whatever it is and then placing an order via computer. See you type in an order of the name of the drug. And it will pre populate everything one Carlos Monte as an emergency medicine physician at San Francisco General Hospital. He also studies decision making in healthcare. He says for an antibiotic default dose programmed into a doctor's computer might be pretty standard but for pain. The the number of opioids prescribed might vary a lot depending on the patient and their type of pain. Well we wanted to look at is whether and to what extent the precepts the default upsetting that we had in the electric medical record influence provider prescribing specifically would lower defaults resulting fewer opioids being prescribed. Soman toys team systematically changed the recommended opioid pill number defaults in the computer systems of two hospitals in the San Francisco Bay area during an eight month period rid. Each hospital's pre existing defaults were twelve and twenty pills respectively. The researchers dialed in new defaults of five ten fifteen or an unspecified number of pills compared to doctors prior prescribing habits. The new default settings resulted in fewer opioid pills prescribed overall and fewer prescriptions shins exceeding the maximum recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So this is suggestive that hospitals other departments clinics can change the setting England impact opioid prescribing. Pretty much immediately as the really low constantly prevention and can be done really quickly. The results are in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Russian internal medicine. Definitely not a silver bullet. The epidemic has a lot of different issues that need to be addressed in this one small tool so that we can use to address. There still could be a useful prescription for physicians.

Yata the Arctic because warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet meaning more and more sea ice is melting every year concerning the rapid loss of see I sat there for a lot of reasons. Tracy Z Goldstein. A researcher and conservationist at UC Davis she says one of those reasons is animals like ice seals. Need the ice to haul out on and give birth and other reason. As the Arctic warms the fish the seals eat maybe moving to deeper and colder waters so the seals have to travel further to hunt them for the combination of all of that over time is probably going to affect their health and their body condition and that will make them not just underweight but also more susceptible to diseases diseases may also be encroaching the upon Arctic marine mammals because spotting a trend here Arctic sea ice is melting coli unintended consequence of all of that but yes You know when they I used to be an ice bridge certain populations would remain separate from each other and so they couldn't come in contact and give each other they bacteria viruses etc but once those channels thought it to open animals were able to move further and came into contact with new species that they had not come in. Contact with in the Post Goldstein. In her colleagues documented the spread of a disease called called fo seen distemper virus from two thousand one through two thousand sixteen. It's related to the measles and causes skin lesions coughing pneumonia seizures and sometimes death in in marine mammals Goldstein's team scanned historical and Contemporary Marine Mammal blood samples for antibodies against the virus. They also hunted for evidence of live infections nasal swabs taken of mammals and they found that flare ups of the virus were linked to years with extreme losses. NCI's suggesting that open waters. Aided the spread of the pathogen perhaps along the melted coastline north of Siberia. Their analysis is in the journal scientific reports mammals that depend on ice to survive may already be slated for extinction and as the Arctic melts. Goldstein says in more frequent epidemics like this viral one could hastened the blow but humans may also be affected up in the Arctic. People subsist subsist on these species so they really rely on these animals for their livelihood and wellbeing and as those animals disappear as their habitat disappears. That's is also going to heavily affect humans in that area so overall I think overall health of the environment and the animals and the people up in the Arctic over time it's just going to continue to deteriorate

Sternberg and his colleagues had a hunch they might find nematodes lurking in one of California's most extreme extreme habitats Mono Lake on the east side of the Sierra Nevada it super salty alkaline and loaded with arsenic and previously known to harbor only two animal species easies brine shrimp and Alkali flies so the researchers took soil samples at beaches around the lake and indeed they found eight species of nematodes living there so we just I went from two animals to at least ten species so that's Kinda striking so are they going to be others the lake yeah people should go look photos and details are in the journal current Biology Sternberg.

Di Carli can't go is a marine biologist at the University of Southern California Nia who's studied that coral bleaching event bleaching occurs when the waters around corals become too cold or too salty or too hot but mostly too hot and then the symbiotic algae that live inside corals which are photosynthetic food factories abandoned the coral which causes them to die because they're losing their nutritional source so they're essentially starving to death but coral can house multiple species of algae some more heat tolerant than others so sometimes in the face of stress the heartier algae proliferate delivery and that change offsets the damage caused by the exodus of the more sensitive species have processes called shuffling chemical in her colleagues studied shuffling in corals roles affected by the two thousand sixteen bleaching bet on the Great Barrier Reef and they found that adult corals can actually pass those reshuffled.

"This is scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. Documentaries are known for their sweeping natural vistas. This does their amazing footage seriously. How did they get that shot in often soothing baritone of Sir David attenborough strain incontinent what those documentaries don't do though is show the realities of environmental destruction historically particularly BBC documentaries have shied away from that Nikki Rust is an environmental social scientist at Newcastle University in the UK Russ studied work by the BBC in the World Wildlife Fund which had teamed up with Netflix to make what they said would be a whole new kind of production. They wanted it to reach. I think a billion people and that it was going to revolutionize nature documentaries except for the fact it may be that attenborough would be the narrator the Netflix series our planet aim to be different because it promised to reveal the threats facing wildlife in the natural world so did it deliver liver rust and her colleagues analyzed scripts of our planet along with three recent. BBC Series Planet Earth to Pimple Dynasties Twenty into hyenas and Blue Planet to spider cramps and logged everything they saw on the screen turns out planet only talks about threats and successes successes a bit more than Blue Planet to fifteen percent of the script did focus on the woes of the natural world but very little devastation was actually shown on screen. The spite being filmed the analysis is in the Journal people in nature. The lead author of the Study Julia Jones was in Madagascar at the time where net that flicks were there filming and she knows that they were there filming the destruction of Habitat and burning and lots of mental devastation so they've got fatigue is just unfortunately it wasn't chosen to be included. It's not clear if that's really a bad thing. Though we still don't really know whether showing environmental tragedies on screen green motivates people to support conservation but what climate change communication has taught us. Ross says is that the ideal way to motivate audiences is with optimism tinged with trepidation. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Don Yata.

Eavesdropping Puts Anxious Squirrels at Ease

"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd. Yata seems like anytime you see a squirrel. It's busy doing something pink headed somewhere scrounging for food and being out in about all the time also means era tasty morsels for a lot of different predators. Keith target a behavioral ecologist at at Overland College. He says squirrels scan their surroundings for hawks and owls cats and foxes but they also have another surveillance system. They eavesdrop on nearby. Birds BIRT's eavesdropping on alarm calls or eavesdropping on chatter is a cheap and easy way to supplement the information that they have access to because it's free it's produced by other individuals in the environment. It's publicly available to any organism that has the cognitive ability to recognize interpret that information tarvisio colleague Marie Lillie tested that ability by riding around town on her bicycle stopping when she found a squirrel then she'd set up her equipment play the fearsome fearsome scream of a red tailed hawk and then either play the casual unworried chatter of songbirds chiefs or ambient noise as a control all the while she observed the squirrels behavior and she noticed that when squirrels heard the reassuring chatter of songbirds following the Hawks doc scream they relaxed more readily. Imagine this if you're walking in a crowd and everyone seems pretty happy and content and they're chit chatting with beach other. You might even subconsciously take that as information that all of those eyes and ears apparently seem to perceive the environment as being safe and we think the squirrels might be listening in on bird chatter in the same way the details are in the journal plus one and squirrels give back to the community to with their own alarm calls which might help other eavesdropping animals but in busy urban environments Tara and says that rich fabric brick of animal communication risks being drowned out by the loudest animals around us.

"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm christopher dodd yada. Cholesterol affects one third of american adults but it's not just us studies have indicated they cholesterol is also on the rise in other animals and in all of these studies that idea was well they hypothesized that was probably due to interactions with people and eating our food but they didn't actually show that andrea townsend is an avian ecologist at hamilton college and upstate new york and and she found that crows did have higher cholesterol then rural crows but then she took the next logical step in her research she went to mcdonald's we'd pick up one hundred and twenty-five twenty five burgers at a time once one of them wanted to know what we needed all these burgers for and then i started to explain they just kind of waved me away halfway through so of course she needed all those cheeseburgers to feed the crows and to monitor their diet to determine if eating are fast food really does raise the birds cholesterol so the way you supplement your nestling is we'd go to their nest trees and we toss the cheeseburgers three a day predefine day under their trees and then the parents immediately swoop loop down pick up the burgers and bring them to the nestlings and as you might expect crows that dined on cheeseburgers did indeed have higher cholesterol than cros who did without but here's the surprising thing higher cholesterol didn't actually affect crowe's chances of survival over a three year period in one population birds with higher cholesterol were arguably googly in better condition than other crows meaning chubbier. Their results are in the journal. The condor crows can live more than fifteen years and townsend says maybe maybe a high cholesterol diet makes its mark later in life as humans and if you're still wondering why study this i would say this is an important question because there are are lots of other species that also live in urban areas and eat our food and some of them are endangered so it isn't important question how will our food affect the health of wild animals and as we urbanize more of the globe our dietary influence might have even wider effects as for townsend grows are known to be highly skilled it recognizing humans and she says the study made her a celebrity during the study especially when i was walking around the crews would follow me around campus. They often just just follow me around campus anyway they follow my car and then i was getting some notoriety on a broader scale with cros so i would go into getting gas and the crows on the gas station would be calling a special car. Yeah i think just for me and it seemed like a recognition call after after all a free lunch sure does seem like something to squawk about.

In the summer of two thousand fifteen strange delivery erupted opted munich germany twenty five boxes of still frozen snow sent all the way from antarctica the reason for shipping eleven hundred pounds of snow from the bottom. Some of the world scientists were hunting for interstellar dust which might hold clues about our place in the universe so i think scientists did was melt the snow and then filter sir it for fine particles analyzing the remaining dust with mass spectrometry they found traces of the isotope iron sixty which is primarily produced in two ways by exploding loading supernova or by cosmic rays zapping interplanetary dust but it's also produced in nuclear reactions here on earth by bombs or nuclear reactors so to determine how much of the stuff was truly interstellar from beyond our solar system. The researchers used other isotopic clues to screen out quantities of iron sixty produced by nuclear nuclear reactions in cosmic rays and they still had some iron sixty leftover to account for this stuff produced by supernova just looking at something which is on our own planet none something which is so far away in happening so many years ago.

There's a very small proportion russian of extremely bold individuals that seem to ruin the reputation of the whole species notre bogert animal behavior researcher at the university of exeter. She studied the food snatching habits of goals in seaside towns in the southern u._k. And she found that very few only the boldest would actually take the bait or make that the the bite the experiment went like this a researcher crouch near goal and then sat out a plastic bag of french fries for those brave goals that then started to approach. The researcher either stared straight at the goal as in i._c._u. Thief or the researchers simply looked away and it turns out staring down the gulls made them hesitate twenty one seconds on average bridge before approaching the fries. The results are in the journal biology. Letters and goals aren't the only ones who behave better when being watched a two thousand six study found that people paid three times as much for their drinks at an unintended honor system coffee bar when just an image of staring eyes was displayed nearby as for the gulls gobert points out that we need to learn to live with them because the particular species she studied the herring gull is on the u._k.'s red list of birds of conservation concern. The thing is people. Don't want to have a seaside holiday without goals there so it's just finding ways to harmoniously live with one of the only wildlife species we still have around in these coastal areas so don't turn back on the goals she says both figuratively for conserving the species and of course literally for conserving.

If the population she studies on Canada's Vancouver Hoover Island she says the spiders only twelve percent chance of surviving their scramble over sand dunes implants and they have very poor eyesight and their traveling at night so one way males find females is by sniffing from afar the fair Ramon perfume on their webs but Scott has now discovered an alternative way males find mates by subjecting the spiders to a race for each male before he started. We weighed him in on a tiny scale and we painted him with racing stripes and measured the length of his his legs. We had a finish line of fairmount omitting females and we released males at various distances from those females to see whether they arrived out of females. Weber not and how fast they got their what suppressor was at the males that started farthest nearly two hundred feet away actually traveled fastest towards females else and the reason they poached the pads of their rivals.

These silk highways left by rival males else and running along them. The details are in the proceedings of the Royal Society.

UNTAPPED source of information about wild animals so he and his team worked with a Safari Lodge in Botswana to analyze twenty five thousand tourists photographs of wildlife. They use those as sightings of lions spotted Hyenas Leopards Cheetahs and wild dogs. Dogs they then compared those data to the estimates they made with traditional wildlife biology tactics stuff like camera traps and track surveys and Colin stations where they play sounds of distrust animals in the middle of the night and see who pops by it turned turned out that the estimates from tourist photos were just as good as those gleaned from traditional methods and the tourists were actually the only ones to see elusive cheetahs. The researchers would have missed the cats without the citizen science data. The results are in the journal current biology.

He was about to step back into the lunar module and. He turned around and just he had this rocks and he saw little spaces and there and he knew that these geologists on earth would be just so excited to study these materials just scooped up. I think nine scoops of soil that he put into the box six and it became one of the most well-studied samples of the Apollo mission she says geologist named John would at the Smithsonian noticed white flex of rock in the soil which he identified as Iraq type called a north of site and include him into the Moon's ancient past and this casinos quite a leap of imagination but he proposed that the whole of the moon had at one time in the past somewhere close to four and a half billion years ago been almost covered with a global magma ocean ocean of lava and so this was a revolutionary idea at the time because people had thought that the moon had formed cold and so it completely changed their idea about how the moon farmed how the terrestrial planets form like the Earth is well. You know really changed a lot about our. Our understanding of planetary science but WADHWA has a second and more personal reason to appreciate this sample. I met my husband because of this rock.

Going Down with them with that moon rock of but Scott made it to the top Wadhwa never met him and moved on from the lunar sample committee but then a year or two later she saw a friend suggestion pop up on facebook. You might know Scott Parazynski and I respect took said hey how did your expedition go and did you return the moon rock to NASA and he sent me this note back saying well. Actually I didn't send the Moon Rock back to NASA. I actually sent it to the International Space Station along with an ever summit rock and if you ever happened to be in Houston I would love to meet you and thank you for making that possible and so I happened to meet him and that was that I was that that's how we met and so Neil Armstrong's last minute scoop of moon-dust brought to people together here on earth and upturned our understanding of how the moon and the earth itself got here.

Attractive Young Females May Have Justice Edge

"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata eight years ago. The jury in the trial of Casey Anthony announced their verdict as to the charge of first degree murder verdict as to count one. We the jury find the defendant not guilty so say we all anthony had been charged with murdering her two year old daughter but like the murder charge the jury's decision for additional charges of aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter. We're again guilty and that created this huge outcry Christopher Ferguson clinical psychologist at Stetson University in Central Florida not far from where the trial occurred. It was kind of like this narrative that you know she got preferential treatment maybe not on. Purpose but yeah so the jury was more sympathetic to her because she was this pretty young female and that kind of conflicted with people's impression of who a murderer as mock trial studies have. Suggested that attractive people have an edge in the criminal justice system so ferguson and his colleagues looked into that stereotype using data from the National Longitudinal Study of adolescent to adult health. The largest long-term study of people who began participating in the study as is teens the interviewers asked the youths a multitude of questions and also raided the respondents degree of attractiveness a measure. That's been used to examine links to health and wealth in this case Ferguson and his team looked at a subset of nearly eight hundred respondents. And examined the correlation between attractiveness and arrest conviction and sentencing after controlling for things like gender race and socioeconomic status they found that attractiveness did have a protective effect but only for females girls or women who are. are more attractive or less likely to be arrested if they had committed a crime and less likely to be convicted if they were arrested for that crime however it did not have any impact on their sentencing so once they were convicted. Attractiveness conveyed no further benefits the results are in the journal Psychiatry Psychology and law. It's just a correlation of course and there are limitations. The attractiveness ratings were an average of four different interviewers assessments made over a dozen years but beauty as they say is in the eyes of the beholder.

Backpack Harvests Energy As You Walk

"This is scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yada when you walked with a backpack. You know how the stuff inside sways from side to side now. Scientists have figured out how to tap into that motion to generate electricity city. Here's how it works. Picture pendulum mounted to a backpack frame and stabilized with springs on either side. The packs weight is attached to the pendulum so the pendulum swings side to side as you walk gears then use that swinging motion to drive a generator and the generator spits out electrical current to charge a battery volunteers carried that pack while walking on a treadmill and they wore masks to measure the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide walking with a slightly swaying twenty pound load device did not significantly affect volunteers. Here's metabolic rate compared to win. They carry the same weight fixed in place in fact the energy harvesting pack reduced the forces of acceleration they'd feel in a regular PAC which might mean greater comfort for a long hike and the device did produce a steady trickle of electricity the operative word being trickle because if you up the load to forty five pounds the passive motion of the pact could fully charge a Samsung Galaxy S. ten smartphone only after twelve hours on the trail.

Scientist Encourages Other Women Scientists to Make Themselves Heard

"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd if you attend science conferences, ever pay attention to who in the audience asked questions, geneticists Natalie, tell us did. And she noticed something off the entire first day of the conference. I was the only woman to ask a question, and I thought, wow, that's kind of weird. Right. So being a scientist she decided to systematically study who ask questions at scientific conferences together with colleagues at Stanford University where she was based at the time and others at Emory University in Atlanta, she recorded more than two thousand questions from hundreds of talks at eight different scientific conferences, after assigning, either male or female, designations to question asker, which the researchers acknowledging the paper doesn't fully capture the spectrum of gender identity. They found that women ask far fewer questions than Representative result based on their numbers. In fact, you need about eighty five two. Ninety percent of your room to be women before fifty percent of your questions. Come from women, but tell us did identify a possible solution halfway through the biology of genomes conference in two thousand fifteen tell us started tweeting, some of her preliminary findings about how few women had been asking questions compared to the relative numbers at the meeting that information sparked a public discussion and policy change from the conference organizers who instituted a new rule that the first question at every talk had to come from scientists still working towards her PHD in the hope that, that approach would produce a more diverse set of question asker, and it worked before our intervention about eleven percent of questions came from women, which is one third of what you'd expect after our intervention. You get more like thirty five percent of questions. Coming from women, it's actually what you'd expect from that audience, the analysis is in the American journal of human genetics and tell us says that strategy of simply publicizing the. Problem has been effective at other conferences to getting more women to not only attend, but to participate in scientific conferences, a lot of women have messaged me and said, oh, you know, I asked my first question at a conference when I saw this work or stuff like that. And I hope that, that means that people are taking advantage of that, incredible opportunity to really add their voice, not just their face in the conference photo to that scientific community.

Say that because this is not going to be homogenize sanitized candidate interview. We're gonna actually talk to somebody who speaks English Kate bending field works for the former vice president Biden of Delaware. But far more importantly, has experience with Christopher Dodd John Edwards and Jeanne Shaheen among others along the way. Kate thrilled to have you with us as you do the operational bit for Joe Biden. I wanna take you back to the democratic campaign of two thousand four in your youth where John Edwards got up in change the American dialogue. Speaking of two America's, what are the two Americas of your candidate? Joe biden. I will thanks for having me, share it. So, you know, don't Biden is running for president for three reasons. He's been out for the last three weeks making the case to voters in all the early states and in Pennsylvania about the need to reclaim the soul of this nation. He truly believes that I've seen the are we are at a place of moral reckoning for this country and that this is a moment for us to get past this broken government that isn't working for people and to your point about two Americas. He's going to be talking about this Philly tomorrow. He's got a big writes his, I kind of kickoff rally, which is the informal, John. She's promoting the moment for the vice president. She's, she's on the Ukraine. It's two thousand twenty it's October. You haven't slept since June, and Joe Biden has to talk to America's secretary Clinton had a bigger popular vote, but didn't resonate with to America's which to America's is your candidate gonna try to resonate with well your first of all, you're putting the frame from the Edwards campaign on our, our car. But, but look, he, he is somebody who comes from, from middle class roots himself. Working not working people know that he is somebody who understands them who understands their concerns who knows what it's like to lay in bed at night. Look at the ceiling and wonder how you're gonna be able to afford healthcare or what's going to happen. If you have a health crisis in your family how you gonna take care of it? How are you going to send your kid to college people know that he's somebody who has lived that experience himself? And so that's one of the Americas. I get that is other America disaffected Republicans, look, he's, he's he believes that we have to come to consensus something. He said in New Hampshire. Yesterday believe two days ago, days, all run together. Right. That without consensus in our government power accrues to the executive and to the president, and, and, and he can abuse it. And so he believes that we're never going to be able to get anything done for people. If we can't come to some kind of consensus and you know he's had experience. Look, nobody has has had more success staring Republicans down and exacting concessions from them. Vice-president Biden, you go back to the fiscal cliff deal in the White House. He was able to extract concessions from McConnell. So nobody has. I put his his, his chops up against anybody's on that, but he also understands and I think that the American people understand that right now government is not working, and we need to change and the kind of change, he represents is getting back to a place where. Government is functional and things get done on behalf of the American people event. So ways the pitch to be fat every time there's an election, not just in the United States, but anywhere else we need to change but returned to the status club. It's not really a change. It's not a return to the I mean, the status quo right now is, is broken right. I mean the status quo we have right now is a government where. People's concerns are not taken seriously, where the wealth is a crewing to the top of our economy, where people aren't feeling the benefits of economic policies where we have a president who is trying to divide us along lines of race and gender sexual orientation. That's the status quo right now, and that is that is Joe Joe Biden represents the polar opposite of that. And that's, that's what he that's the kind of leadership that he would bring to the White House. Let's wrap things up with how much daylight the risk between Joe Biden and the president of the United States on China right now. How much daylight? Well, look, Joe Biden has said appoint he's made for, for many years that he, he thinks it's always a mistake to bet against American workers, and he believes that this president has made some real mistakes by not bring your allies along to these discussions with, with China, not bringing the full weight of our negotiating allies to the table and not having labor at the table. I mean, that's you know as, as president, he believes is important, too, and that in order to force China's hand that we have to be able to bring the full negotiating weight of our allies, along with us, and that's something that he would do as president this was a free pass. I mean, we got through this without talking about those pesky socialist Democrats democratic socially run out of time. Other candidates that look a lot today. Kate, we'd love to have you back again. Cape field, working with Joe Biden. On the campaign centered out of Philadelphia. The announcement made I believe it was yesterday, Kate, I'll make serious pitch.

"Dense fog advisory until ten AM. Otherwise, partly cloudy this afternoon. A high in the upper seventies near eighty. The words of former Arizona Cardinals head coach Danny green back in nineteen Ninety-six. They are who we thought they were. We're talking about the suspects in the kidnapping of eight month old king j David LA yet Charlie yesterday at this time, we were talking about how bizarre this case was in the last twenty four hours specifically in the last eight hours, it is turned from bizarre to potentially very tragic and the break in the case came when police identified and arrested the woman who was seen on the video getting into the car over there on Enrica Barrera and driving away. She was identified as forty-five-year-old Angie Torres who is the cousin of Christopher Dodd villa. Who is the father of the missing eight month old boy, and that that allowed police to put the pieces in place and police chief McManus says we can now say without a. Doubt. This was not a car theft. This was not a carjacking this was a staged event. And he said that we should probably expect more bad news. He said we believe the story of the kidnapping was made up and made up to cover up foul play involving king. Jay, Davi, LA. He didn't specify exactly what sort of foul play. They're talking about. They still don't know where the baby is about the tech gifts. Have now determined by questioning individuals who are involved in this case that king. Jay Davila was never in the car the way it was reported to police as you'll recall Christopher Davalos claimed he left his car with the motor running in the doors unlocked. It a strip center parking lot off and Riquet Barrera to go into a store, and when he came back the woman who seat on the video had stolen the car and police even later released photographs taken by surveillance video of a woman carrying a car seat. But now they've determined that that was not only entirely staged. But there was a. Third person who is involved in. This who is the person who took anti Torres to the location and dropped her off. So she could walk to the car and steal the car to make all this look like this little baby was kidnapped as part of a car theft. When in reality police say now that was not the case. The police chief obviously has no time whatsoever for the Davila family at this point. You'll recall we were talking yesterday about how the family was telling anybody who would listen that the police were incompetent. They were bundling the investigation they were doing their own investigation. Trying to throw police off with fake leads. The chief said Christopher Davalos has spent more time since he's been in jail talking to the media then talking to his own detectives, and he said in very very sternly. This is a quote, he said, even if you're not directly involved in this. If you are withholding information or you have lied to the police, we will charge you at the conclusion of this investigation. So the chief has had up to here with this case, obviously this baby is in grave danger. And hopefully, we'll get to the bottom of this sometime today, but it is a very disturbing case.

He said the following I have profound respect for the late Johnny Cochran, God rest, his soul. But if it's it might be the cockiest thing that I've ever said. Christopher Dodd and Marcia Clark didn't absolutely horrendous job as prosecutors because if it were me, there's no way in hell Johnny Cochran would have beaten me with that evidence that I that they had op telling you right now, not even lawyer. There is no way that you would have put twelve jurors in front of me with that evidence. And I would have lost to even Johnny Cochran one. That Trump I've often said, Dan. I believe in. Stand.

Well, getting for life Ogle's, he realized he was never much good at throwing or running or country nor even kicking. Yeah. Gavin's chances of playing football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how Danko could save money on car insurance. So he switched and save.

"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. If you've ever watched a moth flutter clumsily around a light on your porch. The insect might seem like a sad match for predatory bat. The flying mammal is practically of fighter jet in comparison with its sophisticated sonar acrobatic maneuvers, but some moth species have evolved high-tech tricks of their own. For example, their wings have long dangling tales that they're fluttering in space and they're twisting behind them off as the moth flies, creating an alternative, echoing target that the back perceives as a target that it can actually attack ribbon or team investigated that phenomenon by experimentally altering the wings of months with some moths they snip the hind wing lobes entails with other moths. They glued on extra bits of wing, and then they tethered the differently shaped moths wanted a time in a padded darkened chamber, a sort of Klatten to'real ring for. Abouts on the hunt and observe the battle with high speed video and ultra sonic microphones. By the way that echo locating sound has been slowed down ten times so we can hear it. Turns out it was the monce with longer hind wings or wing tales that live to fly another day because the bats often wound up with just a mouthful of tail. And of course these tail ends do not have nutritional value essentially and would not be a wise place for the bat to attack if it really wanted to capture them off. So it seems that these tail ends are attracting bat attack. We don't yet quite know the mechanism, but they seem to be creating an illusion for the bat that that is another place it can attack and successfully complete its its hunting behavior, the details or in the journal science advances. The researchers right that this decoy strategy has independently of all multiple times among different families of moths, which suggests that this sensory illusion is powerful tool in the ongoing of loose Nuri arms race between the hunter and the hunted. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds. Science. I'm Christopher dot.
