Fresh update on "cliff" discussed on Ridiculous History

"To a level of notoriety that gets them attention outside of gaming circles, you know, into the mainstream. But once in a while a videogame does do that It manages to burst free of its confines. And then next thing you know, everyone knows about it, or at least recognizes little elements that are common to that video game. So games like Pac Man or Donkey Kong loves people know about those well recently the videogame fortnight has managed to do this and burst out of those small niche audiences of video gamers. Millions of people play. Fortnight. Millions of people will watch other people play fortnight, either in tournament Sauron Livestream sessions, that sort of thing. There are hundreds of videos of people talking about the game or doing some of the notable dances that air featured in the game. Epic games, which developed and published fortnight made $3 billion in revenue in 2018, largely because of that game. They're a lot of stories about fortnight, some of which criticise how the game's seemingly lifts elements from other games and pop culture means without compensation or credit. But where did this game come from? And how did it become so popular so quickly? Well. I'm going to do my best not to turn this into an episode that's secretly about epic games, the company that makes and publishes fortnight. But it would be a good idea to get a quick rundown of that studio and what was going on when the company first announced development on fortnight. So here's the super quick version of Epic games, history, maybe in the future, I'll do a full episode about epic games and we'll really dive into the details. But back in 1991, a college student named Tim Sweeney launched a computing consulting business called Potomac Computer Systems. It became clear that the business was going to require more work and time the Sweeney could dedicate to it while also doing his college studies. So around the same time, he also got interested in developing games, and he created a somewhat Primitive computer game called Z Z T. It was a simple, top down computer RPG style game with as key art, and he released this game under that Potomac Computer Systems Company name, but Sweeney also released some code that made it possible for gamers to take this game and modify it themselves. And word quickly spread through out the old computer bulletin board system communities and the game was a modest hit. It actually did fairly well. The success inspired Sweeney to pursue game development on a larger scale within the shareware community. Shareware is a method of distribution in which a developer allows some portion of their work to be distributed freely as much as people like so you can make copies. You can give them to your friends. And there's no penalty. There's nothing wrong about that. Typically, the software has some sort of limit built into it. So, for example, a shareware game might allow you to play the first level of the game for free, but then To get beyond this limitation, you would actually have to buy the full game. Well, 1992. Sweeney set out to create his own shareware company. He also decided they need a better name, and so he chose epic mega games. He later admitted that he chose that name in part because it made people think his company was a lot larger than just A single person working out of his parent's house. Sweeney began to form relationships and work with other developers as well. Like Cliff Brzezinski, sometimes known as Cliff Phoebe. He was another young video game enthusiast who was eager to get into that industry. He was in high school when he first started to write to Sweeney and work with them. The company would release several games over the next couple of years, including a video pinball game and a game called Jazz jackrabbit that ended up being very popular, But things really picked up in 1994. Now. This was right at the dawn of video game graphics cards, three d game design and first person shooters like Castle, Wolfenstein and Doom, both of which were from its software. Sweeney and his team decided to develop their own game engine and three d first person shooter game. They called it unreal. It was an incredibly ambitious project, and they released the game and the game engine in 1998. After several years of development, the unrelenting Jin was an industry triumph, easily matching up against theme or seasoned IDs. Quake to engine and the UN Riel Jin would become one of the standard game engines used throughout the industry. It's cemented epic games as a quote unquote real video game company. Epic would go on to release games like the Gears of War franchise, which was incredibly successful, and the company did well in the two thousands. Now this brings us up rapidly as we skip over a lot of details to 2011 and the start of the story around fortnight itself. In 2011 epic was wrapping up on its own epic trilogy, which has since grown beyond three games and the company was really celebrating. They had just finished Gears of war. Three. The first Gears of war game was for the Xbox. 3 60 back in 2006. Years of war, too, followed in 2008 and Gears of war three finally came out in 2011. The trilogy follows a human military force fighting off an alien invasion and centers around the protagonist named Marcus Phoenix. And part three wrapped up phoenixes storyline and so in order to create a sense of closure and transition, the company held a game jam. Now a game jam is like a hackathon. Developers team up with each other. Sometimes they work with people that they've never worked with directly before. Sometimes they'll take on new roles on the team that they normally wouldn't on a project. So a programmer might become the art director for a game jam. Their goal is just to create a fun game within a certain amount of time, such as 48 or 72 hours. They have to come up with a concept developed the game play the mechanics, the art music everything else. And then they show it off to each other, and it helps inspire creativity and outside the box thinking and gives developers a chance to experiment. Sometimes it can create the earliest version of a future game..

Delta to Use Frequent-Flier Program to Raise $6.5 Billion

"Airlines in a move that should surprise exactly nobody said the date needs to borrow $6.5 billion, an airline executives said the other day, the company is losing $27 million a day. The interesting slash surprising part of this deal is the asset. The Delta is putting up his collateral, its frequent flyer program marketplaces, Justin Hose, going to explain exactly how that's gonna work. Frequent flier miles aren't only meant to build customer loyalty there. Also a product that airlines cell Samuel Angle a senior vice president with a consulting firm, I C F. He says The buyers are credit card companies and the quite a card companies in turn, give those miles to consumers as a reward for using their credit cards. Angle says Miles are a money making machine for airlines. At the beginning of this year, the programs of the four largest U. S. Airlines together had been valued at $77 billion if they were Stand alone Businesses airlines, Khun Tap these programs to raise cash. One common method is to pre sell miles the banks to get cash upfront. Henry Harteveldt is president of Atmosphere Research group, he says an airline can also spin off the entire program is their candidate did in 2005 no airline, though, until recently has leveraged its frequent flyer program. As collateral against a loan earlier this year United put up its loyalty program is collateral for a government loan. Harteveldt says. It's a creative way to raise cash at a time when air travel demand, especially by their more profitable business fliers has fallen off the cliff. Airlines have other creative ways to raise money. Scott Hamilton with the aviation consultant Seeley him, company says it's common for airlines to pledge their planes as collateral for loans, even their headquarters and airport gates. But the frequent flyer program is to me the most creative and the most visible sign of the desperation that the airlines urine the risk for airlines, Hamilton says is taking on too much debt. That could make it harder for them to recover from the current slump.

Humans Have Caused the Most Dramatic Climate Change in 3 Million Years

"Recently Assad with some research colleagues at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, a look at a brand new science article in which are climate model for the first time had recreated the climate on earth over the last three million years, which covers the entire geological pleistocene epoch. The Pleistocene is so important as it constitutes a point of reference for life on. Earth. Because although sure our planet has existed for four point, five, billion years it's only in the last million years. That earth has looked at least roughly in the way as we know it, the continents were roughly where they are today. The North and South Poles were covered with ice. The atmosphere had a similar chemical composition to what we have today. Planet, Earth. Our earth has only existed for three million years. All, comparisons further back in time are quite meaningless. And the manuscript I hold in my hand is not just reaching. My brain is also striking straight into my heart. A deep humility settles in when look at the graph showing the variations in mean global temperature on earth over the past three, million years it shows that we have never throughout the whole plasticine exceeded two degrees global warming compared to our pre industrial average temperature of approximately fourteen degrees. Never. This means that Earth despite all the stresses and natural shocks from fluctuations and Solar Radiation Volcanic eruptions, asteroid impacts and earthquakes has regulated itself within an incredibly narrow range minus four degrees. Celsius were in deep ice age plus two degree Celsius. We're in a warm interglacial period lasting three million years. It's absolutely incredible. Especially since we know why. It's earth's ability to self regulate the ability of the oceans to absorb and store heat the ability of the ice sheets to reflect solar radiation the ability of the forests to absorb carbon dioxide and the ability to be a safe and store greenhouse gases. The planet is a biophysical self playing piano whose music sheet stays. Within the minus four plus to scale. If that is not caused for humidity than I do not know what humidity is. And a deep concern in hundred and fifty years. In the geological blink of an eye, we risk now tearing this Planetary Symphony to shreds. Let that sink in. The global average temperature is now changing hundred and seventy times faster than over the last seven thousand years and it's doing. So in the wrong direction upwards when the current orbital forcing meaning are distance to the sun and the current low level of solar activity means that the temperature should in fact, be slowing down. You don't have to be a physicist to understand that we have a problem. Climate skeptics like to argue that historically the climate has fluctuated so much. So why shouldn't it be fluctuating now? Obviously. It fluctuates. But we are now racing towards plus three to plus four degrees warming. Sceptics like to bring up the little ice age the time when Swedish King Call The tenth Gustav Marched His army across the deep frozen great belt and the little belt in sixteen fifty eight to beat the Danes or that the vikings grew grapes in Greenland during the medieval warm period. Yes. Of course, this is true but it all occurred within the natural boundaries of minus four and plus two degrees. And it's here within this sweet spot that we must remain for our own sakes and our future? In August two, thousand, eighteen at the peak of that year's drought and fires in Sweden and Europe. We published a scientific paper where we tried to establish whether we are at risk of pushing the entire planet away from its current state of equilibrium, the Holocene epoch where we have been since the last ice age. This is fundamental. Our Planet Earth can be in three different states. It can be in a deep ice age as it was twenty thousand years ago with large is. Extending over the northern and Southern Hemisphere with over two kilometers of ice above our heads here in Sweden an ice extending as far south as Berlin. This is an equilibrium state as it is not only lower solar radiation that keeps earth in an ice age. It is also the feedbacks caused by ice. As the ice sheets grow earth gets whiter, which means that more more incoming heat from the sun is reflected back to space more ice means it gets colder which means even more is and suddenly you have a self reinforcing mechanism. This is what makes an ice age and equilibrium earth remains. They're not only because of the external forces from the sun but also thanks to these inbuilt biophysical processes in this case, the color of ice. Earth can also be in an interglacial an intermediate state, which is what we have today where was still have permanent is sites at the polls and we have glaciers on land and the biosphere with forests, grasslands, and lakes roughly as Earth as we know it. It is these two equilibrium states and only these two states that the planet has been over the last three million years that is during the entire Pleistocene. But then there is a third state when earth tips over from self cooling feedback loops to self heating feedback loops, which leads to an inevitable journey to becoming a hot tropical planet that is four, five, six, potentially seven, eight degrees warmer than today where in principle, all the ice has gone and the surface of the ocean is more than fifty meters higher than it is today and where the conditions for live is fundamentally different all over the entire planet. This is what we call hothouse earth. Or Highs Zaid hot time in German where the article when we published it drew so much attention doing this burning heat wave in the summer of twenty eighteen that highs Zaid was chosen as the word of the year in Germany. In this research, we tried for the first time to identify the global mean temperature at which we are in danger of tipping over from our current state, the Holocene interglacial, and embarking on a journey that would inevitably take us to highlight our conclusion is that we cannot exclude that the planetary threshold. The tipping point where we kickoff unstoppable processes of self amplified warming is at two degrees. Bear in mind we are today at one point one very mind were moving fast along a path that reaches one point five in potentially only twenty, thirty years and two degrees in forty fifty years. This is one I would argue of the biggest. Challenges of all to test whether we are right. Can the planet cope with or Canet not cope with higher temperatures than two degrees? But. My conclusion based on the knowledge we have today is that the planetary threshold to avoid triggering high Zaid is most likely at two degrees. Of course, it's not so that Earth will fall off a cliff at two degrees. The risk is rather that we would then pass a threshold where the shift towards hindsight would become unstoppable. In other words, we face an urgency at the timeframe whether we pushed the on button on not triggering stoppable warming is within the next few decades meaning essentially. Now, if we pressed the UNBUTTON and kick off the great planetary machinery with feedback loops causing self warming, then the full impacts may play out over three four, five, hundred years before we reach a new equilibrium state hothouse. A planet with over ten meters, sea level rise temperatures, and extreme droughts, floods, and heatwaves making large parts of earth uninhabitable a planet we do not want a planet that cannot support US humans. This requires from us that we understand two different time horizons. The short term time of commitment. When do we push the unbutton but then also the long term time horizon when we have the full impact hitting on people these are different but ethically, I would argue only the trigger moment counts, we cannot leave a damaged planet beyond repair to future generations. So to summarize the decisive moment when we press don't press the button lies within the next ten to twenty years. With consequences for all future generations a moral, bum. Are High site article concluded that degree Celsius is our ultimate planetary threshold that we need to stay away from. This article actually came out six months before our climate modeling showed that we've never exceeded two degrees throughout the whole pleistocene, the last three million years. In Two thousand nine, our planetary boundaries size showed that one point five degrees is a boundary we should not transgress because then we enter a danger zone of uncertainty. So perhaps you do understand my feeling a deep concern of humility in the face of our latest scientific findings, which really only says, one thing tipping points are real and if they're crossed, they lead to unstoppable changes, which requires a new relationship between us and our planet, and that we realize that we are facing a new ethics. What we do today will determine the future on earth for all our children and their children.

California Creek Fire Zero Percent Contained, Chief Firefighter Says

"The People Fighting California's wildfires include our next guest chief. Chris Donnelly is spent twenty two years as a volunteer firefighter in Huntington Lake California. Good, morning sir. Good. Morning Steve. How are you this morning I'm okay. We've reported a lot on the sheer extent of the fires. How have you been spending your days where you are? Well we we began this this fight probably on Saturday morning about six am and what we did I was get all of our people out of Huntington Lake. Huntington has about probably five hundred and fifty summer cabins in an additional hundred and ten. Condominiums, we had thousands of people at Huntington and Once I had is on the fire, very clear to me that he was going to burn into Huntington and lives were at stake. So we spent most of the time getting people out. Well, I'm glad you've been able to do that. But of course, because of course, we have been following stories of some other resort areas, vacation areas where. There for the summer there for vacation there camping have had to be evacuated emergency ways. you said you got is on the fire can you describe the landscape the way it looks to somebody who's never been there and what the fire looked like. Yeah. Honey. Lake is quite unique word seven thousand feet, and we are the reservoir for a very large electric generation facility. That's two thousand feet below us. Virtually down a steep just just a cliff. and. So when I heard a sheriff's deputies go through our area to begin evacuations about five thirty in the morning on Saturday. I called our dispatch and and and they told me where the fire was. I drove down there about fifteen to twenty minutes away. And look down into the Canyon to about a thousand feet below us and saw flames and new as soon as the morning wins started upslope of Valley. That that was going to be a threat to Huntington. So I recommended that we do a mandatory evacuation at Huntington and began that vacuum evacuation about seven thirty. Our our teams, we we knew this was coming eventually with so much deadened down and the droughts over the years. And temperatures have been drier and well, it's been hotter and humidity's dryer. So said so much deadened down is this mostly forested area that we're talking about This heavy forest. Read for in white for as much as eight feet in diameter. And Bark Beetle infestations probably killed a third of that forest and Ecorse was. Caused by not not too much water much hotter temperatures in the last ten or fifteen years. and. So we have a lot of lot of fuel out there in the forest. You you focused a lot clearly on the evacuation is everybody out safely so far as you know from your area of responsibility. Absolutely. We made several passes through our small community. And we verified that everyone was gone, and then at that point, we had lots of strike teams which are groups of fire engines each. Totaling about thirty five engines by about two PM. At which time is started releasing our personnel to get their families and get out. So right now, the the only members of our fire department, our one company officer, which we will keep their throughout the battle. But it's simply not safe to be there. Well this helps to explain number that we've been hearing the past couple of days we're told this fire is zero percent contained. Is this a circumstance and of course, it's true of all wildfires to some extent circumstance where it's abundantly clear that the massive -ness of dead vegetation that you've described that the extreme dryness means that you really this is something that is beyond human control. At this point I think that's a that's a good statement. I don't know what the future of Huntington Lake is. But at this point to it does not look good. Has. The fire actually reached the the what had been the settled area of Huntington Lake. Yes. We have loss cabins of on the western end of the lake. All communications are down into the area I am not there at this moment. So it's very difficult to get serious information but about six PM last night, all crews were pulled out to about the middle of the lake. And we don't know if they re engaged or not. You said, all crews have been pulled out to the middle of the lake. Do you mean that they went out on the water? No. Okay this is copulated on the north side of the lake, and so a mid mid way on the shore you retreat retreated to a more defensible place is what you're saying. Thank you for much much better said, yes, Gotcha Gotcha I want people to know if they don't that you are as you describe it a brother in the Catholic church maybe a layman would think of you as a monk that is another thing that you do besides volunteer firefighting for twenty two years. How does that inform the way that you think about an event like this? Well you know I'm a teacher at Saint Mary's College and I've worked with kids since probably nineteen seventy. So it for me, it's all about caring people and touching hearts and. It's it's that center of people that I worry about the most you can rebuild cabins and you can go somewhere else but it's the people. So you know just a a little. Thirty second bit for you. Yesterday morning, I drove by a cabin and made a PA announcement directly to people about you need to get out now. Yesterday I called her and told her cabin was gone. And she shared with me that are great. Grandfather that cabin in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty. And her grandmother talked about the moments out playing in the woods and collecting pine cones and. As she broke into tears. I. Thought. How many stories like this am I going to be hearing? And how hurtful this all is. Income on their summer cabins, they gotTA someplace to go, but it's the hurt and the loss and. Tens of thousands of girl and boy scouts that. Were at Huntington. And Church camps and private Anson. There's so many lives. So many memories that probably won't be there in the future. So for me, that's what it's about. It's about the people. And all the all the loss. Donnelly thanks very much for your insights. I really appreciate it and we'll continue following the news to see if you begin to reach a point where you're able to battle back. Well, we'll look for that moment to.

Mat Hancock defends "Homophobe and Misogynist" Tony Abbot

"There are reports that Tony Abbott who is Australia's prime minister between two, thousand, thirteen and two, thousand and fifteen is being lined up to work alongside the British International Trade Secretary Liz Truss. The appointments not been made official yet, but it is thought he would take a senior role negotiating Britain's exit from the European Union. However, there have been many objections with those opposed to the appointment claiming that Abbott is unfit to represent the UK due to his views on climate change and pass misogynist homophobic comments, his the Health Minister Matt Hancock being grilled on the matter by skies K. barely we need to have the best experts in the world in that working in that field. And as the former prime, Minister Australia. Obviously. Go huge amounts of experience even if it's a homophobic misogynist. Well I I I I think that that is I I don't think that's. True I Dave I haven't seen. It said he I'm sure you'd have to support some of his comments. He's a homophobe a misogynist well. He's also an expert in trade. Well joining me on the line from camera is Karen Middleton the political correspondent for the Saturday paper listening to that Toko cliff. And, of course, Karen knows a thing or two about Abbott. So is he a misogynist homophobic? Well I wouldn't call him both things, but he certainly has been cold those things in the past he's taking controversial positions and. Alpha Prime Minister Julia Gila misogynist effectively when she gave a now famous speech in the parliament suggesting that that she can take lectures on misogyny from men meaning ashish. And he wasn't in favor of the. Vote we had here in Australia on same sex marriage campaigned strongly against it and and was involved with some. Philly. strenuous an unpleasant protests against the Julia Gillard when she was prime minister in general that had fairly success language in it. So you know they certainly have been controversial positions in a number of people here have strong views for and against Mr Abbott, and we are enjoying the debate from afar that's going on in London.

CDC Issues Sweeping Temporary Halt On Evictions Nationwide Amid Pandemic

"Millions of Americans have been at real risk of eviction over the past few months. Many of those people have now been given a lifeline in a dramatic move. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is ordering a halt on vacations across the country through the end of this year NPR's Chris Arnold is reporting on this and joins us now Chris Good Morning. So this I mean, this is a huge move by the CDC. It doesn't those seem on its face like something agency would have the power to do. Hey Rachel. Yeah. So I mean you might think because especially so far during this pandemic, we've seen you know nothing very forceful from the CDC. It's been criticized for having voluntary guidance that let states and businesses can do whatever they want. You know I if that's the CDC SORTA walking on little. Kitty cat feed this though is the CDC you know booming it's feet like Paul Bunyan, or something. And doing something much more dramatic and the CDC says it does have the authority under the Public Health Service Act of nineteen, forty four that gives the government broad power to stem the spread of communicable diseases and look I mean the basic idea of course is that forcing people out into homeless shelters or crammed together living with relatives that that is very likely to get a lot more people sick. So, who does this eviction ban apply to specifically? All right. Well, quickly to qualify renters have decided declaration saying that they tried to get unemployment benefits or other kinds of support that they'll make partial payments as much as they can afford to their landlord day can't make more than about one hundred, thousand dollars a year or twice that if you file jointly. And that if you're a victim, you have no other option than homelessness or living with more people in in close proximity. which would increase the risk, which is exactly what they're trying to avoid. The rate of Krona virus here. So how many people are we talking about? How many people with this effect we're talking about a lot of people when when estimate from the national low income housing coalition is thirty to forty million people in seventeen million households or families were at risk of losing their home by the end of the year of something like this wasn't done Diana tells the CEO of the group and I spoke to her last night. Well, my reaction is a feeling of tremendous relief. I. Mean It's a pretty extraordinary. And bold and unprecedented measure that the White House is taking that will save lives and prevent tens of millions of people from losing their homes in the middle of pandemic. But she says also Congress or the White House should have done this months ago. Instead, we've had this crazy quilt patchwork of federal state local moratoriums. Lots of people weren't covered and thousands of people have already been affected. What are you hearing from landlords about this Chris? Well, insurance, the landlords are saying well, who's supposed to pay for this? You Know Democrats in Congress had plans for a moratorium but along with that was one hundred, billion dollars of assistance to renters and landlords to pay for that that is not a part of this order spoke to Greg Brown with the National Apartment Association. We're really concerned about this because the piece that's missing is the most important piece in this whole process, which is rental assistance because if the moratorium is put in place, rents are not paid, but the owners continue to have to meet their financial obligations and how are they supposed to do that? Who's going to help them pay their bills and it's not just landlords who rental assistance Intel who heard from she to says, look this needs to be coupled with federal money to pay for missed rent. It's a half-measure eviction moratoriums on their own. Create financial cliff for renters to fall off of when those moratoriums eventually expire and back rent is due and renters are no more able to pay then than they were at the beginning of the pandemic. And, we should say all this puts pressure on lawmakers to make a deal and come up with some money to to pay and and help people struggling during during the pandemic.

SPACE WEEK: Every Moon, Ranked

"Too small notes before we hit you with some hot moon takes one. Obviously, we're not talking about all one hundred and fifty moons. We picked handful from the top ten, and then we'll do a lightning round on some others. All of these bodies meet the technical definition of Moon meaning they orbit an asteroid or a planet, not the Sun. Second Note. Jennifer's list also includes a few of what NASA calls provisional moons. These are bodies that are kind of, let's say unofficial maybe haven't been studied that well or confirmed yet. Yeah. So. I want to add that the scientists that I spoke to. They said that they're probably way more moons out there that we haven't even discovered yet. Well. So cool. Okay. All right. So number ten on your list diddy moon yet say, yes is did he moon? So, did he moon it's not circling a planet. It is actually circling an asteroid it. It is very tiny. It's about five hundred, twenty, four feet in diameter and it's orbiting. The asteroid diddy. Moss in it's it's kind of part of a very cool future NASA mission, right? Yes. So did he moon is part of a really important the item mission and the item mission is like this cosmic dress rehearsal basically, NASA wants to send a spacecraft to slam into diddy moon and knock it off course. Now I know what you're thinking. It sounds pretty familiar and yes, it is essentially the plot of Armageddon. Show me. But it's a really really important mission in it's going to help us test one of the ways that we think we might be able to potentially deflect a hazardous object that might be pearling towards earth. So cool. Okay. Number six called by one expert you talk to the most underrated moon in the solar system orbiting Jupiter Ganymede Ganymede. Ganymede is such a fascinating world Ganymede is the largest moon in our solar system. It's actually larger than Mercury Ganymede is also the only moon that we've known to have a magnetosphere. Cool. Earth has a magnetosphere and it's essentially this covering this kind of magnetic shell that we have of charged particles and what it does. It actually protects us from harmful radiation. So there's tons of radiation that's generated by the sun and from interstellar space, and that magnetosphere protects us it's potentially allowed life to form. Can I tell you that I am horrified to report I thought Ganymede was a made up moon Scifi show the expanse. Oh. Yes on that. Farm on Ganymede and I'm like it was a fun made up plays I love that shout the expanse it's a great show. Yeah no can't meet is just so fascinating. So number four on your list orbiting Neptune. Triton. Yes. Triton is an absolute misfit. First of all I will say it looks just like a cantaloupe if you look at the picture. How was ranked keep going I, mean, that is, of course, the important feature. But really, what's cool about Triton is that it's essentially this kind of Pluto sized object that we believe has been captured by Neptune and now orbits the planet and temperatures on Triton and we we know this thanks to the voyager two spacecraft but temperatures on Triton have dipped as low as minus three hundred ninety one degrees Fahrenheit. Super Cold Nope nope. nope. nope things. But it's partially because it's got like this ice covered surface right and that reflects a ton of the light that it receives that it's by. Yeah absolutely. That's that's another really weird thing about Tritan on it has what's called an incredibly high Albedo. So that's basically a measurement of how much late a body reflects. and. Triton's is actually really high. It reflects about seventy percent of the sunlight. It receives I'm like in Triton I'm going to be honest with you Ganymede. But I'm like Triton right now array. Okay. Time for the top three Jennifer. Are you prepared I? Think so bronze-medal orbiting Saturn Moon. That contains the big four ingredients for life hydrogen carbon nitrogen and oxygen enceladus. Yeah. So enceladus is absolutely fascinating moon. So the Cassini mission when it arrived to observe Saturn's moons, it noticed that there were jets spewing out of ENCELADUS, right? So they actually took a detour and had Cassini swing through those jets to collect samples of that liquid into turned out to be liquid water right? I remember when that happened that was wild. That was like a big deal. Yes. Absolutely, and so it really spurred a lot of interest in enceladus. Of course, we love Europa. But enceladus is really this kind of new and exciting moon and you know as you mentioned, it has the big four ingredients for life. That's really just an incredible sign that this might be one of the places where we find life. Okay. Number two on the list orbiting Jupiter lot of Okano's and some lightning. I oh. Yes. So I will admit that I have some volcanic. I really love of volcanoes. Thank you for disclosing that conflict of interest Jennifer I have to be I have to be honest. I'm anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love volcanoes. So naturally, I O, which is the most volcanically active body in our solar system would have to take second there are over four hundred volcanoes on the surface of Iowa and they spew jets of. Lava hundreds of miles and two space. It's really incredible. Okay. So this is the wildest thing about Iot to me is that I owe can generate like true current. Yes. So of all of the Galilee and moons of Jupiter, Iowa's actually the closest to Jupiter and so sweeps through its magnetic field and that causes it to create this electric current it can generate. As much as three million amperes, and actually this jolt of electricity is then shot back to Jupiter and it creates lightning in the planet's. Fear I mean, that's cooler than the volcanoes. Some some people would say that. Yes. Okay. Your number one moon Jennifer orbiting. Saturn. A Moon I could walk on with potentially nothing more than an oxygen. Mask Titan. So Titan. Is. The only other place that we've observed so far that has a thick substantial atmosphere. So our atmosphere of course is. Critical for life here on earth and tighten, it has a similar has a sort of similar atmospheric also mostly composed of nitrogen but the second most common gas in the atmosphere is actually methane. So right. So instead of like US having oxygen the next most abundant compound in that moons atmosphere in Titan's atmosphere is methane. Yeah. Absolutely, and you think about Earth, we have a water on earth all. Three phases of water on earth. So there's liquid and gas and ice but on Titan you have liquid methane on the surface, which is really really incredible. It's the only other body in the solar system that we've observed to have liquid on its surface, and these are rivers and lakes and seas of methane and ethane part of the reason why it's got this like, orange Gooby Hayes, around the moon. Yes. So Essay in the methane on those hydrocarbons, that kind of creates it's it's really this I feel like it's really beautiful. It's this kind of soft orangish glow. So it looks a little bit fuzzy whereas other moons that don't have an atmosphere they. They look very sharp but this is very, it's a very muted known. It's. Yeah. Beautiful I think. Yeah. So. Before we go Jennifer we had to leave out a of sweet moons. So we're GONNA do lightning round. I'm going to mention a moon from your list and you give us one moon. Moon Pinions, but moon fax perfect. That sounds great. Okay. Number Forty, one Jupiter's moon ammonia. Yes. So a Mafia is actually the object in our solar system and we aren't one hundred percent. Sure. Why beautiful reds my favorite coloreds promoted to thirty one. Okay Number Twenty Jupiter's Moon Callisto. So Callisto is thought to have the. Surface in the entire solar system. Pretty Sweet. Okay. Number eighteen and nineteen combined also Saturn Moons Atlas and Pan. Atlas and Pan Look like giant Ravioli with aerial around their equator. It's so much fun. Okay. Number Thirteen one of the two moons around Mars Phobos some phobos is a giant rubble pile on track to either fling itself into Mars or split apart in orbit on some missions. Actually proposed a pit stop on the tiny moon on our way to the Red Planet love it. Okay. Number Eleven, Maranda orbiting Uranus. So Miranda is home to Verona Rupe. It's the tallest cliff in the solar system. If you fell off its edge, you would have time to read the newspaper before you hit the ground. Okay.

How To Stay Centered When Youre Skiing Off a Cliff With Angel Collinson

"Great, to meet you yeah Sundays to meet to shout out to my friend Josh Simpson for mixing our mutual friend Josh MCI totally. Thanks Josh. How did you get into meditation? Well. I was always really interested in Buddhism growing up. I'm not sure why I ski raised at a pretty high level from a young age and I've found that it was just something that I was already doing to clear my mind before competitions. But really what got me into it was when I started doing some more of the quote unquote extreme stuff and also finding my spiritual identity or just the way that I wanted to relate to life in the way that I wanted to find meaning for my own life and I'd heard a lot about meditation and I was dating a boyfriend that helped get me into it and that was about ten years ago. Would your practice look like now? Now, I have a lot of time that I spend on the road and I really liked to use APPs yeah I, really love your up. I also really love Waking Up Sam Harris's up I'm here. I mean he's really good friend and he's a great teacher. Yeah. Both of those are awesome nurtured head space but there's something about the APP that keeps me accountable I. Don't necessarily need it for today practice, but sometimes, it just has more accountability to make me sit down for at least ten minutes every day. But usually I like to do some different sort of breath work and. Short visualization stuff. You know that's really helpful like visualizations, a tool that I use both in my meditation practice when I'm trying to still the crazy chaotic water sometimes that life. Presents us with and you know visualization also like every day in my skiing practice when I'm trying to visualize my lines and stuff I take time in the morning to kind of run through the ideal scenario that my life would like that the run would look like and sometimes it's three minutes and ten minutes sometimes it's forty five, but it's just whatever I can make time for. Okay to use the term line. Yeah. So. What does that mean? So, align basically refers to the run that you ski down the mountain. So what I do is it's called big mountain skiing other people that aren't familiar think of it as extreme skiing, but they get dropped off in helicopters and it's up to us to choose the way down the mountain and. Everyone's second. I'm sorry to interrupt you because you're underplaying this I just watch the videos you you just like casually said, yeah we get dropped off in helicopters like it's no big deal. A helicopter takes you and put you on top of really stand place where nobody's supposed to be like don't even yaks of their. Whatever mount goes nothing. Is like the tip of a sort of a at the top of a mountain but it's kind of like a ridge. It's a running ridge and this line I saw you skiing they dump you out of a helicopter and you ski down and then like there's like a little avalanche following you and you're jumping off rocks. It's crazy. For you. I'm still here. Yes. Don't do it again we'll have to wait. I can't imagine how your parents feel watching this anyway. So you're saying line is they dropped off the helicopter and then you kind of it's actually not a straight line you're skiing down you have to ask you can't. It's not like a well groomed straight line course you're skiing around obstacles Yeah it's pretty challenging art to master because what we do is we fly into the basin of a mountain Rangers Cirque and then all the athletes stand at the bottom and we look up at the face right the mountain face and there's cliffs there's a little sub ridges. There's all these things that you kind of have to get image in your head of how you want to navigate through the obstacles and how you WanNa. Make your unexciting how you're GonNa manage what you just called the avalanche we call it Slough. It's loose moving snow that isn't technically an avalanche, but it can. Sweep you off your feet if you cross under it. So it's this whole navigational plan that you have to make in your head from the bottom. But then when you fly the top get dropped off on top a lot of times, there's blind rollovers you can't actually see the markers and so it's kind of this art form of piecing together. What you thought was that little cliff, the tip of that rock that should be really easy to identify and making share. You know you're fifty feet to the right of that and kind of doing that the hallway down it's yeah, it's exciting. That's one way to. I I watched a video of you and I recommend everybody watch these videos because it's. Just to say somebody. A big mountain skier or an extreme skier does it zero justice? You actually need to see it and we'll put in the show notes. I. Was watching a video of you and you can see exactly what you just described. You're standing there looking at the face of the mountain and you can tell your very concentrated. You're taking it in and it sounds like internally you're visualizing. Go, and then I saw you put abandon over your whole face. Was that part of Leser messing around. Okay. Happens more often than the visualization to be honest. But so you're looking you've been doing this long enough. You've been doing this a pretty a pretty small and you're looking at them. So you you're able to really take in what am I seeing here in is this feasible but then I've also read that you get in the helicopter to go do the thing and sometimes you just referenced it sometimes, you see oh that what looked like a little cliff is actually something different, i? Don't know if there is such thing as a little cliff but anyway and do you ever decide oh? No No, I'm not doing this thing. Yeah. I think that's also where meditation has really helped me because sometimes it's easy to let what you think. You're capable of or what you think. You can accomplish for that day get in the way of the reality of things you know maybe it's the conditions or maybe it's you're not firing on all cylinders or whatever, and being able to back down actually as. People ask you like what's your proudest moment you know and I would say it's times when I stepped away from stuff that I really wanted or knew I was capable of but had to have the self awareness to be like this isn't the day for it and you know we learned the hard way too. That's how you learn how to trust your intuition is. Follow it and things go wrong and then you're like Oh that's what that was trying to tell me

"That you know, once I discovered that got once asked to decide, slow, I ever reliable value for k and done. I have a secret k. and now I need some other bytes. So repeat the entire tack process, but it's pretty quick. It's microseconds, sort of Protac, Matt kind of scale. And so some number of megabytes. Second, I could start to read bits out, so let me run back here and run over this attack scenario. Again, we understand it a little bit there is you basically tack works because I can set the non architect at St. on just winning wall instructions in the normal way, being uninterested in result except aside effective hacking the the, the none architecture state. So flush my own cash and training the branch buffer so that the Ray links check passes normally which only will then load into the Ellen cash. The secret key. I want by act by trying to use it in one way and having my test bite, my fake password fail. The the real key is in cash. Now, did I run the attack? There's a first load of the array links. It's slow. It misses in cash and now have the shadow of the Kashmiris to go do some other work. There's a comparing check, which are all speckling because the loads unavailable, I then load the the index value, which I picked to be within your AM. I'm rain, checking, get a pick to be the KEA wanna get. So I load into some, you know, registering inspector register. It totally roll back when the ranch fails, but I don't care. So some specter of register holds the secret key bite. It get scaled and then a second load modifies signals. The third load modifies the state of Owen cash by a by loading a cache line that's scaled by the secret key. I want any tax basically over the Ellen cash holds the one of the two hundred fifty six combos of key catch lines have been modified b. loaded and though to five. We're not loaded and there's some other junk into cash care about, and I go now to my cash looking for the fast one line.

You listen to a special register, it's not party architectured state yet. So the tanker me can't actually read it, but then the value that got loaded speckled register gets scaled by an amount larger than the size of your cash to be six as some scaling happens all time. And then this used for a second Raillard. And the second reload then is the second different buffer, but now has this giant value that's offset has the key by looking for scale by something beer than a cache line. And so I don't care if it lands in the second buffer or not, because all looking for a change in the catch. So there are three loads in Roker a load of Ray. Links that's missing cash. That's pending a load of the crypto key, which his it has to be fast because this work has to happen in the speculative shadow were waiting on the load from main memory for the come back. So we have to quick but didn't cash because I did a crypto load earlier. So it goes on a couple of clocks done. It got scaled and then we load a third time off scaled amount. So now on the address side of the cash, I had the seek akiem looking for scale by a larger month to be sex, some random buffer care what, and I don't care loaded on the loads of cash. I just need the secret key scaled in the address the catch. And now tax basically, Don, I'll do a timing attack, Reebok k. I go to my own cash. I try all two hundred fifty six combinations for the byte, just secretly loaded and I just load them in time each load. And for the one that's already loaded, it will be. Fast.

"Hi this is cliff click and welcome today's podcast on if you like these podcast you can find out more information by visiting my blog at wwl dot cliff see not org slash wads okay so today i want to talk about hotspot in the job avert machine and safe points this is great misunderstood issue that leads to all kinds of funny side effects of people don't understand very well and i'm going to go step through wide at which safely wide exists and why you might care the main thing here to think about is a safe point is this notion of having the java virtual machines architect its stake be visible and win win there's not a safe point is not visible again and what does this mean why do i care is basically you cannot stop the job virtual machine from running accepted safe points and for all of those people who do profiling based on standard ujb mti interface is the builtin mobile interface inside hotspot they'll only stop a gave him at a safe point and that means they only get coq filing ticks at safe points and that means they get no profiling kicks where there's not a safe point and the heart compiler remove safe points from the insides of tiny loops so you get no co frontex in tiny hot loops and that means that people who do safe point based coalfires have this holen profiling where the hot co doesn't actually show up as being hot because it doesn't i would say point okay i'm that well how did this come about an y you know in what why are we here so the real reason for safe points is to allow java to have really good optimization and also allow for upwards its class loading and unloading for the ability to stop in the middle of the bugging vote buying optimize code to to handle what are called her role iq assumptions are rug optimizations in hotspot lingo.

"So the thing you have in your collection is small it is itself a cleaner or a a small inner juror or you know you idea whatever some small value that adding a pointer overhead probably doubled your memory cost if not worse so immediately a link list gives you twice memory cost over the equal honnan ray let me get to that more and medicare so the bigger cost is when you look at the contents of a link less in you wanna get to an element that's further down it you have to walk it and this requires indirect suit every corner no link list one after another after another and why is this different cost and going through an iraq it's because the the start the next memory fetch you have to have the prior one in hand to get that pointer to go to the next linked list element you facts the corner of the current one but you can't go to one passed that into uganda one just in front of you so you end up chasing memory references one after another and you what is the cost of that well if they fitting your cash your l one john lewis oh cash your memory cost eur cost of doing business is roughly two four o'clock cycles it varies by cbo in why don't care about two to four clock cycles well if i have a small element of ten of us may i don't if i have a thousand then new working through a thousand things costs me maybe three acts the thousands and that certain to add up but in particular by the time get to a thousand sings i'm probably no longer fitting in that all cash kashmir down the aisle to cash and in and out to cash i am now looking at you know 10 to 20 clock cycles there's a there's a roughly 10x bump in size and when i go to a million elements i'm not in the all too in the morning all three and a gimmick take another 10x bought to do basic operations the cost to walk that linked list of a million elements is a million l two cash misses and that's a lot i look at an array an.
