But i will let you. Margarita explained what your role is and all of that and kind of dive into a little bit more for listeners. Basically she second in command at veterans benefits administration so veterans benefits administration. Va that's your va. Va home loan disability compensation of oak rehab life insurance transition assistance and speaking of transition assistance marguerita has a lot of different advancements in military to civilian transition and also suicide prevention to include. What we're talking about today and that is the. Va solid start program so margarita. It is so good to have you. I just want you to want you to take a few minutes and introduce yourself but is so great to have you here. Welcome to we served now. What inky so much. It's really my pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me to be on this podcast And i guess what. I areas like to tell people as i've been in the va for twenty five years It's my passion to serve veterans in in various different roles throughout my career. i'm also mom of inactivity serving marine And also the mom of a college student Dad was a navy veteran brother served in the army so Military family close very close to my heart this mission so really happy to be here and talk about the solid start program haas of also weived definitely excited to have you and again on this show. We do our best to answer the questions that veterans and their family members are already asking and one of those questions is what is the. Va solid start programming. And that's question. Maybe we can just lead off with that. What is the. Va solid start program. Absolutely i'm happy to just dive right into that. so solid. The solid start program is really part of the military to civilian transition journey. That really looks at the fact. That transition does not end when you get the d. to fourteen at the end of your military service in fact those of you who have served you know this right. That's really when everything starts to actually happen and no amount of preparation With the military can really prepare you for what what your situation is gonna be like after we heard this from veterans so this program really seeks to connect with veterans in that first year after separation starting at about three months and then we follow up beginning six months in a year and it really is an opportunity for us to start out with. How is it going for you. How's your transition going. How're you doing what's going on in your life. What are you worrying about. And really letting the veteran drive the conversation about what he or she needs the moment how it's going and then our agents are very well trained to pick up on those cues from that conversation and provide that veteran with specific resources in guidance on how to continue their transition in the most successful manner. Possible that is that is huge. I remember. I remember when i got out at the end of two thousand fourteen. It was a kind of a drinking from the fire hose. Except i didn't even know what i was supposed to be drinking. You know it's like hey here's a bunch of benefits you might be eligible for good luck and so it's funny so we started this podcast in the summer of two thousand eighteen and it wasn't until i started this podcast and started doing some research that i learned about more benefits. I could've taken advantage of when i first got out. You know four years prior and so the fact that this this solid start program is tackling that specific issue. I think is great. So what what. Problems specifically is the program trying to solve will it is really a suicide prevention initiative and it came from the fact that we heard from veterans. That sort of felt like all the services and support sorta stopped When they separated from the military and because it was like drinking from a fire hose. They really didn't know where to go to do And who to connect to and it was really difficult for. Va to connect with veterans who were not engaging with our with our systems already so we entered into this agreement with department of defense and homeland. Security is coastguard is under homeland security to get data feet of all the military members when they were separating so that we can start those phone calls so that we can call everybody and by the way we do call everybody that we have information for that includes regardless of character discharge We will call these veterans and we will make sure that they get connected to services and resources that are that are specific to their needs so again suicide prevention. We recognize that. There is a a real. There's a reality about transition stress Which is very different than what you might think about with clinical rate with post traumatic stress disorder. Which is a clinical diagnoses Comes with its own required treatment in the mental health arena. But this is just It's stress around. All the life changes that happened with transition. And what you said you know sometimes they. You're hearing so much about so many benefits while you're in the process of separating that when you get out you might not realize that you didn't take advantage of all of them right right. That is so true. That is so true. So so the the tap program transition assistance program or the army's version i think is a cap or something. It is this part of that is essential that the tap program still exist. How does it factor into all that. They're they're connected. They're two separate things but connectors so the transition. Assistance program does still exist Dod really owns and operates. Don on any of the military services of course puts their own branding on their part of the program via has an entire day where we come in and we teach about. Va benefits was really great. We were able to get it to a full day. Always didn't always look like that but even in that full day where we teach it's really It's a classroom experience right so you're Before covid you were in a room with twenty twenty five other service members and as much as we try to make it engaging and make sure that the servicemember can tie all the benefits to their own personal situation using interactive workbook. All of those things. It still was a classroom experience. A not individual not one on one We do still have benefit visor. Available for one on one support with and they. They advertise that during the class. Now when we went into the code environment we go to virtual So we we are still pretty much in the virtual environment. We've we've started working on getting a little bit more in person presence with tap classes but of course as you can imagine Safety is the number one concern And so we think about this way. Transition assistance program is about teaching. You what you might need to know and getting you prepared in the right mindset for transition. Solid start is like okay. Now we're gonna talk to you after this happened after you got out of the military to see. How are you doing ended. All that stuff makes sense. What questions do you still have. And it's one on one so rather than having to listen to what everybody has to listen to if you already have a job and that's not your concern or you're already in college and using your education benefits that's not your concern but maybe you need to get into a medical appointment. You don't know how to navigate. That will work with you on justice. If that's what you need is maybe you have issues with your children. You need some some other resources. We have access to information about state department of veterans affairs benefits that can sometimes filling gaps were. Va can't Provide a service to really is personalized the comments we hear from veterans. I know you've been seeking feedback from veterans. As well is that they're surprised that va's calling and they're so thankful for it because they were maybe not sure who to call her how to ask about a particular benefit so it's been really interesting seeing the positive reaction from our veteran community. Absolutely and you know. I think that you know this is my opinion. You based on my own experience and the experience of know friends and other veterans who gone through the transition systems program. There are getting ready to get that to you to fourteen right. So all of those briefings. I shouldn't say all but a lot of those briefings are at least in the transitioning servicemembers. Mind it's it's a check the block it's like all right. Let me just get through this thing. So i can go home. Take off this uniform for the final time and get on with my life so the fact that you're contacting them throughout that first year i think they're going to be a whole lot more receptive to hearing. What the benefits are. Because it's not like you're not keeping them from you know from going home you know. You're not you're not saying. Hey you have to be here. This is your place of duty right now. So you mentioned covid nineteen and a lot of things have gone. virtual has there been any other impacts to the program. I know the program still pretty new but have there been any other impacts of the program as a result of the pandemic like are you behind or ahead or anything like that. A solid start actually was in a great position to react effectively to the covid nineteen situation. All of our agents were telework ready and all of our equipment works from telework standpoint. So they haven't skipped a beat they are not behind. They are on target When we first created the program we weren't sure what kind of response we were gonna get so when we created the program We we have to have a performance measure right so we said well. How many people do we really going to answer. The phone won't va calls. You know think about yourself right if your cell phone rings and you don't recognize the number what's the chance you're gonna answer it. Probably not your let it. Go to voicemail right. And if that person's important deli new message so we kinda thought we might get that sort of a reaction so we kinda started. Set the bar low. We said fifteen percent our goal was fifteen one. Five fifteen percent of veterans we reached out to we would be able to actually engage with. They would answer the phone and engage with our with our representatives. It's been just phenomenal. The actual result actually have your with me the december twenty twenty report since we began the program. We have reached over. Eighty seven thousand veterans and the fiscal year. Twenty twenty today fifty seven point. Five percent have responded and engaged. Yeah i know it's it's been just an incredible Response and we also prioritize veterans. Who we know from the information from dod if a veteran had mental health appointment In that last year of service before they left the military prioritize them and we also know that for that population. We need to make sure we get them connected into. Va healthcare and with that sub population. The percents even higher seventy three point. Six percent have responded to our agents and our end have engaged with them on the phone. Wow that is really really great. How surprised were you at the at the numbers when he finally saw them. In the beginning. I was very surprised. And then you know we had a town hall with are Representatives the ones who are actually making the call and it was really interesting. Many of them are veterans themselves. Some of them are you were military spouses. And some of them even used to work in the tap program and and they're so passionate about their work and they're always submitting new ideas about how to improve the program here in the anecdotes That they shared with me about what some of these veterans were telling them and how grateful they were for this phone call. One thing we do is we did put it on the caller. Id so in most with most cellular services You you'll it'll save veterans affairs on your phone so you kind of notes the. Va calling so kind of helps to increase the the response rate but yeah. It's it's been an amazing response for veteran for so happy that this program is reaching them in making impact. Yeah definitely that's great. That's great so. Va solid start. It's for those who are basically brand new to the civilian world right so for those of us like myself and a lot of our listeners who are not newly separated what resources are available for us for helping us understand available that that we can take advantage of so a couple things you're right. Solid start is for those that are recently separated so for veterans of any era. Were here for you as well. And you know i always. I'm always very sensitive to that that you know if you Or vietnam era veteran. We care about you. We want you to call us if you if you never got connected to your benefits. Please call us and we will walk you through. There's a main toll free number which is one eight hundred eight two seven one thousand and that is our main call centre. Those agents are trained across the entire portfolio benefits as well and they will help you identify. What eligibilities you might have In the benefit side and they can even connect you to healthcare If you if you haven't signed up for your healthcare so they can. They can kind of connect you regardless of when you got out of the military And if you are a veteran that just got out in the last year and you haven't gotten your solid start call. I say the information we get from dod his last information we had about the servicemember. Sometimes people change their phone number They changed their email address. We do try and reach out by email First before we make that first phone call so call us. And if you're in that last in the first year after separation just asked to be transferred to the solid start program very cool very cool and you just taught me something with this eight hundred numbers at eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand right cracked. Okay so i could you know after we finish this conversation i could off here. I could call that number and find out the benefits that i'm eligible for. Maybe i'm not taking advantage of. Yes and really. What what they're gonna do is they're going to ask you some questions. What type of benefit are you thinking about. you know. and because we haven't education call center so if you said hey. I'm really wondering if i'm if i'm eligible for the gi bill. They'll transferred to gi bill experts. Right if you say well. i'm really kind of thinking. What kind of employment types of benefits or what about disability benefits So you know they'll help you with those benefits. It's a little bit different than solid. Start in that There are more got react to what you're needing in the moment whereas are solid start agents are trained to sort of prompt And get information out of the veteran to help navigate the whole suite of benefits they might be entitled to and i also wanna say your state department of veterans affairs. They have offices in in different states. We have regional offices. One day hopefully will be able to meet in person again. But in addition there's the veterans service organizations in. They're out there to help. There's a lot of resources but yes feel free to call us. Anybody listening to podcasts. Give us a call one. Eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand and we'll try and get you connected to your benefits above love it and so speaking of benefits and this is it's kind of a curiosity question. I guess what is the most overlooked benefit that veterans typically. Don't take advantage. There's a couple and we actually make it a point to focus on these in the beginning They're time sensitive so one thing for example is life insurance benefits. There is a time limit on when you can convert your service group. Life insurance to veteran group life insurance. And if you don't do in that timeline you kind of miss the opportunity It's about a year and a half out from from when you leave the military so We tell them always about life insurance and that's always kind of a tricky thing right. Nobody ever wants to think about end of life. Especially you know you. A young twenty five year old veteran and twenty six year old. And they're thinking while life insurance okay. You know if they're single and they don't have a a spouse children they might not be thinking about it so we want to make sure they understand the value of having that life insurance policy and so that they make an informed decision potentially to take advantage of it another one is dental care the eligibility for dental care which is time limited in a lot of veterans miss out on that because they don't fully understand it so there's a couple of the ones that we know are are critical sensitive And honestly we've heard some some of our veterans who say they didn't file for disability benefits. Because they didn't feel like they should take that benefit away from another veteran so we do spend some time explaining that they don't take benefit from another veteran. It's a it's a mandatory benefit. Were any veteran. Who's eligible for the benefit and it also opens up the door for healthcare. And you know if you're young and strong now but but you know that you had injuries orthopedic injuries for example. But you're okay and you can kind of deal with the pain right now. Well one day you're going to need healthcare it might worsen You know this is. This is not a handout. It is an investment in that veteran. Making sure that they can stay strong and half the care that they need to to For the rest of their life if needed sure sure so that is some really really great information. But it's not every day that i get to to the principal. Deputy undersecretary for benefits at the veterans benefits administration or being translated. Second command right. So i have a couple of questions that they're they're along the lines of transition but not solid start specific right sure all right so one thing that i'm incredibly passionate about is helping veterans rediscovery since of purpose and meaning after the military and so finding that sense of purpose in that sense of meaning after military service is. It's really the single most challenging part of a chat challenging part of the transition and so one question. I wanted to ask you is how does the. Va help with this aspect of post military life. It's interesting that you bring that up because our research also validates that is one of the biggest challenges. In fact we did. We just started last year. A post-separation study of veterans. Who went through the top programme while they were in uniform to kind of see the retrospective look right. Because it's one thing we can really high marks in the classroom right there. The ninety six percent are highly satisfied with our tap class. But what we wanna do is wait to your veteran in the naski. Look back on and say okay now. How well prepared did you feel you were and we also bounce that against data to see are they employed you know are they using our benefits and we ask them for information about how they're doing so in that study we found the open comments that we got from veterans were very much around that loss of sense of camaraderie. That loss of sort of feeling that you're part of a community unit cohesion that you had the military you don't have that in communities today And just that that loss of sense of purpose and mission so we're just now starting to lean in to explore how the can help with that. We can't solve the problem ourselves right because we're not going to be that sense of community for them but we can connect them and we've been engaging with a lot of organizations nonprofits and via so organizations that provide that connectivity that sense of community in that sense of mission And we're starting those conversations to say. How do we infuse that into the solid. Start program so that we can start connecting veterans in a different way to give them that sense of community. they're looking for. It's really going to involve have to involve a partnership model via. Can't do this alone. Sure sure on love the fact that that the va is realizing this and is like you said leaning into that so now this is a this next question for you is potentially a touchy question. But i don't need to tell you that. A lot of veterans are like. I don't like the va about experience for those veterans who have had that experience or they're just like man. I've heard so many bad things. I don't even wanna try it you know. It's probably not worth the hassle. What what would you say to them if they were if they were asking like. Okay what should i do. Should i do anything. What would you say to them right now. A couple of things first of all. I wanna say avenues. Cells and good news typically unfortunately does not get the same kind of traction. There are so many good news stories out there. And if you look for them you'll see them. I would say comback triumphs again. It's not the same. va that. It was a few years ago. We have come such a long way in the healthcare system with the hospitals in the end the outpatient clinics in our regional offices are outreach is is so much different and we understand better how to improve the experience for our veterans. So i would say it's been a couple of years maybe had a bad experience comeback to us get another chance and if your experience is not absolutely stellar fabulous edit. It doesn't make you turn around your opinion of va. Reach out to us. And i would say in the healthcare system. We have Advocates in every medical center. Go talk to the patient advocate. Tell them about your experience. Let us change something. If there's something specific that's not quite right. Sitting in our via regional office asked to speak to the leadership team. We have lead dan so hard on getting feedback from veterans and making changes across the entire enterprise. It's it's just not the same. Please try again in comeback. That's what i would say. Sure sure so of just just anecdotally right so my family. And i we live in alabama and so my closest a regional center is in birmingham. And so you know i. I've been there a lot over the past few years. And when i compare the service and the facilities and everything like that to a to a more local hospital more local medical facility. It is night and day difference. I mean bring. Va clinic is just top of the line. So it it is really an and again. I know everyone is different but it even from. When i used to go to the va we lived in texas to go into the va. Here it is. There's so many positive changes that have been made in at so honestly i'm really really happy with with the facilities and the care receive and everything like that so glad to hear that. Yeah absolutely absolutely so what's a big takeaway here right. So what does something. All veterans and newly separated veterans or. Otherwise what should they really remember from our conversation. Today i would say remember that. Va is here for you We probably have a benefit or a service that you might not have been aware of And we wanna be there. We want to be partners in your military civilian transition. We want to be partners in your life and help you with any issues that you might have. We're not the answer for everything But we also have connections with community resources and just reach out to us if if you need anything don't try and go it alone and again if if you had a bad experience in the past comeback to us i promise you it should be a much better experience now and like i said if there's anything you encounter that that you have an issue with let us know we're here to be part of it. I mean my personal story. My brother who is an army veteran wouldn't go to the. Va for the longest time. I finally got him to go and he's been so thrilled he was. He calls me up and he's like says they're offering me services that i didn't even ask for. They're they're doing this. They're doing that. And i said yes. That's what we call wraparound services when you come into a va. We are not just looking at the problem that you presented with. We're gonna ask you how else we can help you. And he's been so impressed with that. He wishes he would start in the. Va system a long time ago. It really is We've really made some great advances. So please come see as awesome awesome so here on the show. We like to give our listeners. Some practical next step. So when this podcast finishes playing what should they. Do you know the context of our conversation today. What should they do because today's question is. Hey what's the. Va solid start program. And obviously you've answered that more than we could ever imagine and in so having you on the show has been just absolutely outstanding but what should their next steps be right after listening to this podcast. I would say if you're curious about the benefits and services we offer You might try to going to our website. Www dot va dot gov easy to remember And when you go to. Va dot gov. You'll see sort of things grouped into logical sort of life domain issue. So you'll be able to kind of navigating see. Wow you know what is what does the. Va half for me. And then you can actually apply for many of our programs online. Some of them Were still working on getting online. But you get the application online so that would be one thing and then if you just don't wanna talk to somebody some full more comfortable calling on the phone and talking to somebody call that number i gave earlier one eight hundred eight two seven.

Sarah Kinzir scholar, authoritarian states, and all of hiding in plain sites and Philip he goes of the center for Policing Equity Thank you guys for joining me and I'm going to start with you. We are living in a world where secret police are detaining protesters without probable. So. If you look out on the nation, you will note across the chasm a lot of steering thing we try to tell you and you really touch on some interesting things in your piece in the Atlantic I loved it and you say that Donald Trump's authoritarianism is a form of politics that reached new heights. And you compare this what we're seeing in the landscape to Russia explain that to me. So. Thanks I think the important thing to understand about what trump is doing is that these are not tactics designed to solve the problem? Why is he sending customs and Border Patrol Coastguard Tsa. Officers into American cities these are people who don't have training and riot control who aren't used to dealing with political protests, and whose main goal seems to be to create more chaos. Of course, this isn't full on dictatorship. Resting the mayor or conducting mass arrests are putting thousands of people in jail for what he is doing is creating pictures. That are designed to show other Americans. How tough he is! So the fact that these men are wearing men and women maybe are wearing camouflage. They look heavily armed. They're wearing. Face Masks this is designed to show and kind of act out dominance. Look were pushing back against the liberal America the. Urban America the chaotic in America that. You're all afraid of and this is how we're going to win the argument. This way of using troops and using photographs of violence is something that we have seen in other authoritarian states. particularly in Russia where. Putin in twenty, thousand fourteen. Used pictures of violence to imply that the democracy movement in Ukraine was really some kind of Nazi fascist uprising, and that he was then putting it. Is, this is a tactic. We've seen US in other parts of the world, and we've already seen the photographs and footage of this be used in campaign. So that really punctuates your Article Philip. I want to turn to you because one thing that concerns me about. This is the experience that black and Brown people have when we encounter police so attorney general bill bar has said that in these new cities that the police officers are going to be clearly identifiable. I don't know that that makes it better. Considering that when black people encounter police there three times more likely to be killed in Chicago there six times more likely to be killed whether you make this. Yeah amp put it exactly right. These are not here. These troops are not here to make anything better. They're set up. In camouflage, which by the way they're not blending into any urban environment with those uniforms. To make the folks who are protesting who had been almost entirely peaceful important up until this point. Make them fear that there's going to be some kind of forceful, physical violent, a reaction to their peaceful expression of their rights and the thing I want to understand is this is over the objection, not only of the mayor of the US Attorney Attorney General the governor of local law enforcement as local law enforcement has been trying for the last seven eight to figure out how dare legitimacy at trust of New York, and this is explicitly not helping
Why Is 'Mayday' the International Distress Call?
"Stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. Mayday is an international distress. Call used by airplane, pilots, captains, and some emergency response personnel, the US coastguard deals with roughly twenty five thousand distress calls every year, some of which involved the mayday code. The signal arose just after world, war one as air traffic between Britain and mainland. Europe increased dramatically. All nearby nations needed an internationally understood signal that would alert authorities urgent aircraft problems. So, why not just use the standard? SOS call that Navy captains used when they were in trouble. Well ships communicated through Telegraph, Using Morse Code, and this technology made SOS of three dots, three dashes and three dots unmistakable by contrast aircraft pilots used radio calls and SOS, owing to its continents could be misheard as other letters like F. One Frederick. Stanley Mockingbird, a senior officer in London was put in charge of finding an appropriate code word. He reasons that because so much of the air traffic flew between Croydon. England and Paris France. It might make sense to use a derivative of a French word. He came up with mayday based on the French pronunciation of maybe or help me, which itself is a distilled version of eighty or come help me. The US formally adopted mayday a distress signal in nineteen, twenty seven. Due to radio, interference and loud ambient noise, a pilot's told repeat the word three times when they used the call. This repetition also serves to distinguish the transmission from others that simply refer to the mayday call. Although any situation in which it's being used as probably a little panic filled the federal aviation administration encourages pilots to offer specific information in a specific order, so that emergency responders exactly what they're dealing with. I told repeat. The word made a three times then the station address the aircraft call sign type the kind of emergency, the weather, the pilot's intentions, the current position, and heading the altitude, the fuel, remaining in minutes, the number of people on board, and finally any other pertinent details.
Italian coastguard struggle to free sperm whale from fishing net
"Ah fight to free fury. Massive sperm whale caught in an abandoned fishing net off the coast of Sicily is the focus of a frantic attempt by the Coast Guard to free the mantle. The whale was spotted over the weekend, struggling to get free of the kind of net usually illegally used to catch swordfish. Coast Guard have nicknamed the Whale fury. Given its frantic though so far few tile efforts to break free scientists expressed anger at the Nets, which recently entangled another whale.

"Forty eight year old. Lee Small lives in a quiet suburb near Portland Maine with her husband and three teenage children. Lee was the name given to her by her adoptive parents when she first arrived in Bridgewater Massachusetts as a toddler named my. My father was in the coastguard. My mother was a art teacher and we just had the typical normal life soccer basketball vacations regular schooling and just kind of very fortunate to have everything that we needed in life. Lee didn't really know anything about her birth parents but in the mid nineties when relations normalized between Vietnam and the US she took the opportunity to travel to Vietnam there. She searched for her birth. Mother would no luck. It wasn't until almost twenty five years after that when fully a total stranger connected them and for the first time ever Lee was able to call her biological mother. Now you back again okay. Yes they do okay. Yup Yes thank you I appreciate it and I want to let you know that I had a wonderful life so it was. It was good so everything you did was good so it a life changing call for Depp as well. I told every Every one in my family you know and say oh. I find my dog when she. You don't have to CRY OKAYS IN CAIRO. Because I I'm I'm very happy. You know fighting. My mother daughter finally met in person shortly after that call when Leeann her family visited Vietnam. Allio that moment when they went in for that I hug was captured on video in it. Both women are visibly shy. It's going to take some time to break through a language barrier and decades of distance. But it's a chapter. Both mother and daughter are looking forward to one. That's now possible. Thanks to the help of a kind

A New Gene Helps Explain Why Some People Need Less Sleep
"Everyone thinks listening on your host. Stephanie Educator in science efficient aficionado Michael Programmer in Tech Guy Hello Stephanie Happy Abby. Monday happy Veterans Day. Do you have any veterans in your family. A father was a veteran Vietnam. Let's I two coastguard cousins as well. That are yeah yeah. My Dad was in the coastguard. So let's celebrate them today day But my question for you today. Michael is how much sleep do you get on typical night who. I think we've already discussed that. I have two young kids so not enough not enough at all right How much sleep do you need to get in order to be happy and well-functioning enchanting every day what would be your ideal number? I've always found a little over. Seven hours is usually where I'm where I'm happiest. Yeah Oh seven and a half of like in bed time I read it off you I because I have the fitbit's yeah last night. I got five hours and twenty minutes the night before was six hours twenty three minutes and that was we're good nights so well. Some scientists at the University of California San Francisco may have found a gene that. What would allow you to not sleep at all? I'm done for that right. So there are some people out there who typically indeed much Louis sleep than average human being so Just kind of you said you need seven hours of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation. Then would recommend that you as a an adults would need a between seven nine hours to be well-functioning so seven hours is actually pretty good. How much do we actually get As a new parents I think There was a report that came out. That new parents will get about Four hours and forty four minutes of sleep in an average night. Does that sound about right to you. Yeah that sounds absolutely about right. I'm love I'm past the the new parents Youngest is two and a half so I should be getting more sleep now. But that's just in the first year of your baby's life so so I yeah I have a five month old right now and we are dealing with some pretty significant sleep regression He likes to wake up in the middle of night and party. Hard from two in the morning sometimes so yeah so my typic- sleep right now is averaging probably about that that much maybe five hours I would guess so. That's you know that's kind of hard right now but I so that's why I was kind of interested in what they're doing. Being at the University of California they found a gene a mutation. So that it's it's a point mutation in neuropeptide tide receptor. NPS are one and it's responsible for the short sleep phenotype so there's a They think they they were studying a father and his son who to bigly only get four to five hours of sleep a night and they're happy ready to go they don't need more than then four hours of sleep how we're measuring that. What's happy and ready to go because that feels somewhat subjective and probably based on what you have to do what you were doing? Your body is healing overnight right. So if you're doing one thing you need more sleep even be happy but still be your body could still be fatigued. Yeah absolutely so. If you don't get enough sleep what happens what what is I mean. What are some things that can happen when you don't get those You know at least seven seven hours of sleep you definitely have a lack of alertness rates. you have an impaired memory. You can't remember things you tend to forget important bills to be paid or there's a an event you need to do that can happen I I've been no onto leave my keys in the door fire when I come home. There's a when you're I mean it's crazy when you really start especially if you notice. It was apparent that things you just forget a when you sleep you like that you just like dragging on. I done. Forget where we cabinet like the plates are in. What would they do? The I I was. I was struggling struggling about two weeks ago. There was. We had some sleep issues. I wasn't feeling so good so I wasn't sleeping. Well I went to go take medicine like Sudafed and I just put the whole capsule like the blister packaged package in my mouth without popping the pill this was wrong. What did I do that? Yeah no there's some. Yeah you can definitely have some impairment in your every day quality of life and those are just some those are just some short term symptoms of lack of sleep You know in the long term it can be really bad bad for your for your heart or your blood pressure to not get enough sleep over a long period of time and it can even affect your appearance. I definitely have circles under my eyes since since the view has been born and it can also increase the stress hormone. Cortisol in your body in Cortisol is not is not a good thing to have. You know definitely contribute to weight gain it contributes to wrinkle so Yeah there's some there can be some some pretty major things happen when you don't get enough sleep so so yeah I don't don't know too much about the man who claims he only needs four hours of sleep but here's what they did. They found a gene in in this man that was his point mutation and they actually Caused caused by mutation in mice Just to see what happened And so these mice after they You know exhibit this mutation they show and This is what the study says. They showed increase mobility time and reduce sleep moreover. The animals were resistant to cognitive impairment induced. By the sleep deprivation so of course you know they have the mice running around in mazes and they have to remember where their food is and so then they then they don't let these mice sleep. I'm I'm I'm assuming they keep them up. I'm not sure. How would you keep mice from sleeping in a controlled experiment? Just poke them incessantly. I don't know how you keep a you. Keep a mouse awake. I guess you just don't give them the nasty keep them in the like the hard maze of the Many just poke them. I really like stimulate. Relate them right keep stimulating them so they don't sleep. I guess well I don't know if maybe they're not yeah. It wasn't clear to me in this article if they were purposely keeping them awake or if they were just measuring how much these mice were sleeping but either way these mice were not sleeping. The correct amount that you mess with the light dark so I mean their animals so they sleep. You know when it's light out my sleep. What his light so I guess you just turn the lights on basically? Oh it's time to get up. Well I don't know if turning turning on the lights would necessarily wake up mice from sleeping I feel like mice are gonNA sleep whenever they wanNA sleep unless you're doing something to keep them up physically it's like being a sound cat. meowing predators will get them up playing twenty four hours of baby shark. It probably stress levels. I know my blood pressure goes through the roof Yeah so yeah but anyways they put these mice through some trials After you know inducing this this mutation and they were able to perform just like the other mice that were able to get more sleep so the idea is Can we somehow activate this mutation ashamed in our own bodies in would you. I mean I absolutely would but can way I mean Nicer tiny mice don't have the same level level of brain function that we do. I mean I get that people need less sleep. But what are we doing this. Do they think this is an efficiency efficiency thing like asleep important. We know sleep is very important. Dreaming is important our our these mutations more efficient or they like hacks acts that are making your body seem better. But you're not actually doing the healing and regenerating that you need to do.
Racing's Drug Kingpin: Randy Lanier
"Let's get into the story of Randy Lanier the weed racer yes. Yeah Oh Randy. Lanier was born in Lynchburg Virginia on September. Twenty second nineteen fifty four. His family moved to Broward County Florida when he was thirteen. There were few things a good old boy such as randy loved more than pot. He would frequently sneak out of school just ahead to the beach and smoke smoke. Do by the age of fifteen. He was selling pot to his classmates. Even after he dropped out of high school he would continue to sell to his. GED Randy would say honestly. I didn't even think about it as drug dealing it was just a way. Okay for me to smoke without having to pay for Kumon tally. When did you first smoke? Pot Yeah Probably fourteen fourteen I think at that point I was too afraid of it because like there is on on my way to school. There is a tunnel that went under a freeway. Go through and like that's where like the the Estonians of the burnout so by smoke and they all kind of frightened me a little bit rightfully so they were kind of rough kids but I I it was never about that in high school. I thought like I think looking back on. It was pretty like dude intervene. Kinda like weird. I couldn't wait to smoke pot. Yeah Yeah I would've smoked pot way earlier if I were popular enough to have any friends. Yeah like years later I realized tons of kids I knew were smoking weed and they were like totally cool but it was just like those tunnel. Kids'll uh-huh scared me away from it is the first time I smoked was in college On top of a parking garage that was across the street from our dorm And of course like it was out of an apple. Of course yeah I think everybody's I Branches out of an apple and of course it didn't have any effect act on me and then the second time it did me and my boy tyler went back to our dorm room and we did freestyle raps over McNamara. She's a few hours. That's that's the way to do it. It was very sick. I mean when I was a kid like we'd culture was just so much it was just painted in such a different way. Yeah you know like it's fly out of lax with weed in your pocket. They were like we don't care some of these stores. La Look like the frigging apple store like men and it's crazy and it's like it's very convenient and you don't. You don't feel weird about buying pot but I feel like I definitely like missed out on like that. Like illicit elicit like. Yeah I used to smoke such crappy pot but the fact that there are people making billions of dollars off a weed right now and still people serving life sentences for possession national or selling is a huge problem that we should address maybe an another another day on another episode pats anyway it by the age of Nineteen Randy began working for construction company where he continued to sell it. Because he's not only a jug. Dili's Kinda just like a lazy like he's he jug dealer because like I don't know who's round man overtime it's clientele grew increasing the size of orders as well as prophets as sports illustrated. PUT IT in time. Joints turned into Baggies baggies. Turned into bag bags turned into bricks. rix became bales ails sales of a push. teed Johnston the BAGGIES. I can't do it slow anyway. Now it's hard. He's very good to the one thousand nine year. Old Randy drug dealing was the most promising opportunity yet he said. Let's just say I was definitely making more money. Then I made Neilan boards all day. I believe one of his last purchases on his first I just want to point out. How like good? This dude is at just sound clips. Yeah you know like yeah. Very romantic quotes. Yeah yeah one of his first purchases with his newfound wealth was a twenty seven foot magnum sports speedboat. He purchased for eighteen grand. Initially the boat was only. I used recreationally. He would jump waves and just you know cruise around there but before long an associate recommended he put that boat vote into quote commercial. Use like selling ice cream from the boat. James I doubt it. Oh I looked up these magnum votes This speedboat in particular is like so cool yeah just long as hell low fast. They're sick this guy's cool and and just like that Randy lanier move from being a low level drug dealer to a mid level trafficker in the timing. Couldn't have been better It it was the early nineteen seventies. It was a smuggler's Paradise Man. It was like the pirate days trafficking into the US specifically really from Columbia was still unknown. Threat that would soon become one of the biggest drug crazed sees in US history and a new exotic strain of marijuana called Colombian Colombian gold was being grown on Colombia's Guajira peninsula and it was beginning to flood the American black market. The arrival of Colombian gold fueled fueled a boom in America. Known as La Bonanza meeting. Better the mayor which loosely translates into the marijuana. Bonanza guys we gotTA Marijuana Bonanza Hands. Of course Florida was the best place to import such a large amount by the early eighties. About three quarters of the United States marijuana supply originated from Columbia Razi in his first mission. He he went to the Bahamas to pick up one ton of marijuana. So you're gonNA see like yeah I'm going to grab my boat to the middle of the ocean and pick pick up a ton of pot two thousand pounds a week it's crazy Randy showed up to these specified coordinates in the middle of the ocean and another other. Bigger boat would pull up next to them and the the we yeah. What's up guys like? And they transferred all the bales from the big boat into the whole of Randy's speedboat and then he would get the hell out of there all right thanks town to go back toot sweet right. I picture him just like wearing a cowboy like no shirt gene short. I'm imagining as not to become a in in the story from now. Yeah I think that's a good way to imagine This this technique was super common speedboats. Like Randy's were fast enough to evade the long long arm of the law and it wasn't difficult for smugglers to slip up the intercoastal waterway and hide a labyrinth of Florida swamps. According to a report one trafficker could earn a return investment of around one hundred fifteen percent so it made sense for randy to do this with a speedboat and naturally after you know I mean it sounds like this is like trying to get people to do it which they probably were you can get a return of one hundred and fifty. Why don't you come to this lunch at the Holiday Inn? And I'll I'll tell you all about a way that you can get up to one hundred and fifteen percent return on your investment with one Boron. We'll even Lisa the boat. Yeah very reasonable reasonable interest rates. Naturally ready was hooked. He did this trip. He did this kind of trip often. In spite of risks linear loved tempting fate eight and living on the edge of disaster for Kenny loggins lurk he had multiple close calls including one time almost sinking his boat as it was way down down so much by marijuana despite everything he frequently alluded capture by the US coastguard and received a twenty five percent. Cut of his delivery. Delivery seems like a lot. I mean he's taking all the risks to me. That's I guess he was just like a runner yes he wasn't dealing to the public anymore. Now he's there's like a guy from the ocean is a post mates for we. Yeah in a in a way. Yeah do you post Manson anymore. I use post meets way too much. I try to be waste free But you know sometimes you just you just want to pack of EMINEM. I know in one thousand nine hundred ninety six at the age of twenty two Lanier married his high school sweetheart. Pam uh-huh with her help. He opened a jet ski and boat rental shop near Fort. Lauderdale as a front to launder the money and present an air of legitimacy gene under the guise of a boat rental shop he soon purchased a sixty five foot trawler. I looked. I looked up with these are trawlers are basically really big boats votes There could be like recreational trawlers or fishing trawlers. Like just imagine a sixty five foot boat milk you can look it up Your you'll probably imagine the right thing. It's a big big boat with low. Yeah he got one of those with Got A lot of room. That's bigger than I thought. Yep Yep sixty five feet him with a boat this thing that is a thick composed he could smuggle directly from Columbia. No longer having to stop open meet a A mothership down to the Bahamas with each delivery he made with a sixty five foot boat he could smuggle over eighteen thousand pounds sounds of pot into the US that allowed sweet sweet dreams Enoug- soon despite massive quantities. He has now smuggling he was always smart smart about it. Never visiting import twice in a row. He would load up in the port of Santa Marta in Colombia and he would either doc in the US in in New Orleans San Francisco and sometimes bridgeport Connecticut Far Ways up the coast. Yeah I mean just looking at those three locations locations that's a huge spread Like some of those trips could take like a week. Some of them can take like three weeks to get there. You know that's crazy. Yeah smuggling muddling much like racing and comedy is all about timing Lanier loved loved the adrenaline rush of almost being caught doing something so illegal but he needed more one day while visiting an auto show that was taking place. Within the Miami Ame Convention Center Linear stumbled upon a booth that was sponsored by a local driving club. He immediately realized that racing would give him the high he needed and impulsively possibly signed up and that is when the racing career of Randy Lanier started in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at the age of twenty four to the guys. I'm twenty six now. You don't even own one boat. I don't own a boat. Never smuggled shifts this dudes in his third career now. Yeah he started out as like get drug dealer. And he's a drug trafficker now owns a boat rental company. That's three and now he's like you know what man I think. I'm going to give this race car driving the try. It's awesome randy bought in nineteen fifty-six Porsche three five six speedster for seventy five hundred bucks and competed in the production class races at the SCC a southeast regional championships. Although he had no clue what he was doing he was a natural with each race. He proved drastically eventually winning the e production class in nineteen eighty at age. Twenty six. How old I am? I've never won any production class. Some feeling inadequate inadequate. But that's fine
Can Global Shipping Go Zero Carbon?
"You might surprise you that I have not been on a giant shipping vessel. Before what are they like. Yeah I don't vote either. Mattie were ship usually journalists right so I went with a couple of colleagues. Visit this cargo ship in Baltimore. Anything interesting something that was representative of with the industry. Let me tell you. That's extremely large. It's like a cliff rising above you as you drive up to it. Rebecca they they were very welcoming ships. Chief Engineer Alexi Booze Loft gave us a tour of the ship's engine room. Okay what does an engine room looked like. Because I'm picturing like old timey men shoveling coal into a fire. It's very Titanic well there were old timey man but other than that. It's completely different so it has a huge engine the size of multiple city buses. But what I noticed was the smell smell. This is a smelly more guessing oil more humor. Yeah so it. Alexi is currently pointing out that it smells even worse than their than if they were burning gasoline because they're burning heavy fuel oil and there are like rows and rows of tanks and fuel. Oil is really thick and dark. It's like the stuff you put in your car but like on steroids it froze and it covers everything it touches like all the parts of the engine in this thick gunk. And there's so much of it that Alexi. He spends a lot of his daily cleaning components components and he collects all that gunk in fifty five gallon drums of what he calls. SLOP SLOP is never good. Yeah it's it's very gross. So why are we using this stuff. Well it's dirty but gets the job done packs a lot of energy into a relatively small volume and it's really cheap to buy right now. Is there a cleaner fuel. That could provide the same kind of energy sure maybe Some people point to liquefied natural gas that's cleaner than heavy fuel oil although it's still a fossil fuel so you're going to get some greenhouse gas emissions another option could be hydrogen okay hydrogen. I've heard of it. The most common element in our universe. Electrically Yeah you can use it to make electricity without generating any greenhouse gas emissions at all no soot sulfur zero here too gross stuff. None of it and the technology to do that. It's been around for decades called the hydrogen fuel cell. It's so old that at this point it's really safe. We have good regulations to keep the hydrogen safe. What's new and still unproven? Is this idea of putting fuel cells onto ships. Yes and to work out the specifics of how to do that. There's actually a group that's building ship. We're going to another ship leaving Baltimore. We're we're going to cross the country we're going to Oakland I visited this shipyard where there's a ferry under construction that's actually going to be powered by hydrogen fuel cells so no carbon it. It's actually going to be the first coastguard certified hydrogen powered vessel ever in the US. Just pretty cool. So what does this hydrogen-powered in powered boat look like well. When I went to see it earlier this year it was just an aluminum frame? Okay but that's because it was still in a relatively relatively early phase of construction it will look like a ship and in the meantime I got the founder of the company Joepat to show me around and sort of point out where everything was going to be. This is the floor. This is kind of where everybody sits. And then it's everything down from up on the deck when it's done that's where the hydrogen fuel cells. We're going to go okay. So let's walk through the science of how hydrogen fuel cell actually works. Okay so it's nothing like the combustion engine that you're used to in like your car car. In those you burn fuel you combust it to create energy and so what comes out is gross pollution right. It has like sued soot and all sorts of stuff that is not very nice in it right in a fuel cell just converts hydrogen or another fuel directly into electricity through a different reaction so no combustion nobody inning. no-boom exactly know boom. That's like the tagline for fuel cells. But seriously it's super simple. You're just combining oxygen with hydrogen and creating trysofi. You can use that electricity to turn a propeller in this case and you don't get all that nasty stuff right so instead of like a city. Gross rose exhaust. The fuel cell just gives off water and heat exactly so instead of like carbon and gross. Exhausting me out of your tailpipe you just have this this mean moist air and we can condense the water that the fuel cells produce has it goes out the exhaust pipe. The exhaust ask schools down in the water falls out of it. It's like like raining and we collect water and we'll use it for onboard drinking. They're using the water from the exhaust as drinking water. Yeah give me that sweet sweet exhaust water. Yeah sounds delicious right. It's actually to clean. What does that mean you've ever had distilled water? Sure sure yeah. It tastes kind of weird. This is so clean that they'll have to add minerals back into it so it doesn't taste weird okay so this is my question. If hydrogen is so easy like what's why haven't we been doing this already. Well for one thing. Fossil fuels have been really expensive for a really long time really ubiquitous easy easy to get. Don't pay a lot also. Hydrogen can be difficult to store. So there's a barrier to entry there and compared to heavy fuel oil and I really like at this point. It's so interesting that you don't think about it. A lot shipping hydrogen. Like getting it to where you need it to be able to feel things. It's expensive and we don't have great infrastructure for are distributing hydrogen across the country. So obviously building all that would cost money and would take time. Okay what else. Well fuel oil well is dirty but it has a major upside which is that it can pack a lot of energy into every drop. It's got a lot of exactly tons of youth in a very very small space with hydrogen. You get less bang for your buck. You need more of it to get the same amount of power and that's problem because you're on a boat remember so so you don't have unlimited space for a really long time. Engineers had just assumed that you need to get so much. Hydrogen power ship. It wouldn't work. It wouldn't fit but then Joepat and his team what they did with their building on here is this analysis where they found that. Actually it probably is possible to get enough hydrogen onto a ship to power Howard at least for some types of ships some designs. So that's what they're testing here. They have this design. They're going to build a ferry. See if they can prove it works. Gotcha okay so he got to ask is like from a carbon cutting perspective there would definitely be some carbon costs to building all these new ships that would use these fuel cells or like retrofit. The old ones right. Yeah yeah totally retrofitting building ships. It would cost a lot of money. Middle Out of carbon but hydrogen right now. Most of it that's produced in the. US is actually produced using natural gas. So it's not completely clean right putting clean and scare quotes so even though when you're actually using the fuel cells they don't emit carbon to get that hydrogen there is a carbon footprint. Exactly and then we go back to the sort of building the cost of building new technology. This is an example of something that we see across the economy. Right when you want to transition your economy from systems that were more polluting systems that are less polluting. You're in a bind because you have to use the old technology to build the new technology right so this this is just something that comes with the territory and there's a question about well. How cleanly can you build the nuclear technology all right regardless of that like are we really going to be able to scale this up to a point where it would make a big difference? I mean listen. I'm not going to sit here. And guaranteed the entire global shipping. Industry is going to change over to a new fuel. That's what I thought we were. We're doing here. Oh wait sorry I you know I mean. Here's the thing we're talking about. Global warming right emitting greenhouse gases all that pollution. It's creating the eating problems for the shipping industry. There's an incentive for them to scale this back because imagine you run a global shipping company hurricanes are getting more severe just issues one effective table right not great for ships bad for business so there's already a financial incentive to switch over to something and hydrogen appears to be one good bit right. That's why the largest shipping company in the world has made this zero emission. Promise but one company really make that big of a difference. Yeah I think it will and the analysts I talked to you. Think Gobble too because there just aren't that many big shipping companies in the world so when one really big company like Maersk makes this kind of promise if they follow through it could make a really a big dent. One Way to think about it would be like if all of the car manufacturers in North America of a sudden banded together and we're like we're only manufacturing facturing electric cars from now on. Wow Okay right. So that's like a pretty big deal and it seems possible that if this new ferry and other other prototypes can prove that. This is possible the way they'll do. It is using hydrogen.
