Childrens book helps to discuss the environment with children
"We begin briefly with a message from the moon from a dog. One you know. Yes i dog on the moon. A friend of johnson. Greens of blueprint fame. I orchestra and a graphic book called the carbon neutral adventures. The indefatigable enviro teens and it is a mixture of fun in fact. Isn't it dog. yes. I wanted to talk not just about what climate change is because i think a lot of people understand that over and this is a book for ten to fourteen year old so i did want to explain what climate changes but almost more importantly i wanted to talk about. Why climate changes and what happened. How it happened and why it's still going on and why it's so hard to do something about it because that if you think about it logically which clearly a lot of people. It doesn't make any sense at all. No you actually summit up marvelously on page one hundred eighty and you say in fact if you imagine the person talking to you. This dog is in fact. A sort of modern version of the mad towed in a speedboat saying the planet is being ruined so wealthy adults can have second jetski. I don't know whether to be scared or sad or angry or something else. I just wanted to the all. Does that sort of sum it up. Yes it does because we talk a lot about the legacy that we're leaving young people and we're very apologetic and for all the grades in the world but we do talk about how they're going to have to fix it and that's just simply outrageous. Not only that we've trashed the planet so badly but also that we're now starting to talk to young people in terms of how it's their job to take care of it and win. Of course i say we. I mean the vast majority of humans on the planet because a lot of the decisions are in the hands of regular folk. But we do have this kind of desperation expectation that people will come along and put together something that we haven't been able to do and that's not really fair now. It isn't but you see in the book your referring to someone who looks like greater but she has a different name what is the name. Cordelia pine kind with it or gardenia. Pine cone is one of them. And that's the most wonderful name. I've come across in a long time. I wanted to put greater in the book infected. I tried to contact her and say would you read my book and write a forward and she didn't get back to me and that's okay 'cause she gets four million emails a day. Yes exactly so. I totally understand that. She wasn't available but it was really about being able to say someone like greater is doing this and we can't all be greta but she's in fact just one person who's doing the same thing that we need. Millions of young people to do now. There are lots of really good scientific references there. But there's one puzzled me. It's fairly long so let me actually read. What's here in the book. It's about piece of technology and you understand very well so far that when it comes to technology. I haven't a clue what's going on anyway. It says the d. foof elisa solar powered vacuum matic vowel sucks up all the nearby poop. Poison foof and flange through the hyper magnetic recycling filter to remove all the bills. Then it's passed at light speed down the anti-gravitational spewed out to be flogged. Back ended home in front. That spits the remains out the plumping shoot into a bucket. All that's left behind is a few nuggets of nickelodeon and you won't believe this. All the bandicoot of the workshop thought. This was hilarious because nickelodeon is a previously unknown form of completely renewable energy that is hugely powerful and totally clean how. We laughed and laughed now in three words. Could you summarize what have just read letitia. The inventing warburg come up with no. I can't not three words there. That's one of the superheroes in the book is leticia who was a genius. Science one bet and she invents all sorts of different machines that do different things with the that work in the mic workshop underneath a headquarters of the environs and the default elisa machine that latisha invented and it removes what they call the poison off which is in fact the in the greenhouse gases. And we know that that carbon isn't infect poisonous. But you just wanted in the right places in the right quantities. The default removed the poison for from the atmosphere. And one of the things. I realize with this wonderful invention which they start trying to deploy around the world. Is that even if you do in fact remove the carbon from the atmosphere. There's still a lot of other problems and difficulties that are going to be solved and it really trying to talk about how chafe nickel solutions to. Climate change are important but they're not infect the answer indeed and where is the island on which this otx. it feels like tasmania. But it isn't is it. It's not a nickel knows. Island is one of the places. I visit with. Captain snoot hall. Who runs the secret. You refuge the and suggests that if they really want to understand what climate change is that need to go on a perilous journey across the waterfall. And are they need to go and talk to the great nipple and the great nipple is a creature who lives at the top of the haunted volcano and explains climate change to them in

How to Like Bitter Flavors, Airplane Ticket Price Factors,
"The universe is expanding. But how fast it's expanding is a hot topic for scientists almost one hundred years ago, astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe is expanding at a predictable rate, which has been called the Hubble constant some recent more precise measurements have sharpened his accuracy. But they may also put our current understanding of physics in limbo. And the reason you picked this story today. Ashley is because this podcast is being released would be Hubble's one hundred twenty nine th birthday, happy birthday Hubble happy birthday. So before we talk about the new calculations. Here's how Hubble came up with the Hubble constant in the first place. It all started with. Giant clouds of dust and gas and space called nebula when astronomers founded nebula, they didn't know how far away it was if you've ever wondered whether a light in the night sky is a satellite or a star. You know, how hard it is to tell the distance of things in space well in the early nineteen hundreds Hubble found a way to calculate their distance. That's when he realized that nebula weren't located in our own galaxy, but way beyond it they existed as galaxies in their own right, then Hubble compared distance measurements with each galaxies velocity and found that the further away the galaxy was the faster it was moving away from us that led to the bombshell of the century the universe was expanding Hubble came up with a formula to determine the speed of the galaxy. And it uses the Hubble constant astronomers have used that ever since to judge. How fast the universe is expanding? But the constant has been updated as we've gotten better technology, like the Hubble space telescope, the Wilkinson microwave and Assad chirpy probe and. The Planck satellite. The original estimate was somewhere between fifty and one hundred kilometers per second per mega par sec in two thousand thirteen the number came out to sixty seven kilometers per second per mega park, but in December twenty sixteen a group called h zero lenses in Cozma grails wellspring calculated. The number was seventy two not sixty-seven. The thing is the fact that the Hubble constant is constantly changing. Could mean that there are elementary particles in play that we haven't discovered yet. It could mean the dark energy doesn't exist. But instead, there's a theoretical form called phantom energy that could exist. This all would mean new physics and addressed a change in our understanding of the universe. But for now, it's too soon to tell if you're looking for bitter flavors than you might look for a coffee dark chocolate or an India pale ale or IP, but have you ever wondered why some people love those flavor notes while other people can't stand them? We'll research shows that the reason might not be in your head. It might be in your saliva. I'm not. I'm not Knipe guy. But I am a coffee guy. I am a both person. I like I like coffee. I like pretty much anything better. I'm not a big dark chocolate person. But he neither do it. Yeah. I would like to learn more research into the subtle differences of these things, but overall there was some really cool findings in this study to start out saliva isn't just the thing that keeps your tongue moist. It's the biochemical medium of the mouth. That means that every chemical reaction that happens between your tongue and teeth is carried out against a backdrop of saliva. There's so much happening. That Purdue University has an entire institute called spit which stands for saliva perception ingestion tongs and the head of that lab is Dr cordelia running who wanted to figure out why people develop the ability to enjoy bitter food more as they get older. I mean, little kids aren't usually crazy about the taste of coffee after all Dr running in her team had a suspect in this. Tasty mystery bitter foods like dark chocolate get there. Biting taste from chemicals called polyphenyls in a new study. Participants alternated diets for six weeks every other week they drank polyphenyls rich chocolate almond milk a few times a day and during the chocolate consuming part of their diet cycle. Participants began to naturally produce a new kind of protein in their saliva one that easily binds and captures those polyphenyls at the same time. The protein started to show up the participants reported that they enjoyed the drink more and experienced it as less bitter or astringent in a nutshell. That's why you quote unquote, get used to better flavors, and here's a practical application for beer drinkers. According to a new report for produce spit lab, even those of us who prefer crisp pills nurse and rich Stoute's might benefit from trying more as in time. The bitter flavors can actually change the way we experienced taste anyway long story. Short flavor, influences diet, but diet may also influence saliva. Which in turn may influence flavor.

Lots of people travel around the holidays. So here's a pro travel tip. Tuesday is no longer the best data book a flight. In fact, the day you buy your ticket is definitely not the biggest factor in how much you pay. So what is the best? Well, we're going to talk about it. Okay. Fine. A million excited flying. Don't wanna give it away at hush. So the best day to book your flight varies depending on who you ask and 2017 study by cheap air dot com. Founded on average no day of the week is better than any other to book a flight. The prices vary by less than one percent. There used to be more human. Invention where managers could create flash sales and a lot of the time. They were on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but that changed thanks to computers humans are predictable. But algorithms can react to the market in real time. But there are decisions you can make to leave an impact on your wallet. One huge factor is how far ahead of time you book, cheap air found that a single flights lowest fare changes and average of seventy one times going up and down by an average of thirty three dollars about every four and a half days. That study also found that the best time to book a flight is between three weeks and three and a half months in advance of travel since fares tend to be within five percent of their lowest. You should book a little further in advance for spring and summer travel. When demand is high a study from Expedia and the airlines reporting corporation found something similar for most routes. The lowest prices are found thirty days or more ahead of the departure date and rise sharply after that all of the studies found that there's no benefit to waiting until the last minute by and large you'll end up paying hundreds more. Than you need to the other big factor is when you actually travel according to the cheap air study the cheapest days to fly are Tuesday and Wednesday when you'll save an average of seventy three dollars per ticket Sunday is the most expensive the Expedia study found that the cheapest day to travel domestically depends on the airport, but internationally Thursday and Friday our best. The results are clear if you're looking to save money on air travel. It's best to plan ahead and be flexible in your travel

I was like, oh, I'm genuinely feeling something for Ethan right now, I'm genuinely scared that he's going to jump off this building and and seen the Dow lying about the dinner table. But he's just. Which is why I didn't remember his forgetful. But I think link is also a great character such like he's a funny likeable and not very deep character, but he's well drawn. So you like him and then you get hit with the scene where his given death all of a sudden. Yeah, and he really, oh, this matters. Yeah. Yeah, his character matters not just as like a best friend yet, but to the story, totally really well to rip Ridley like and not as so like crossing similar thing. We're just seems like shallow. Yeah, you get this cordelia it's definitely and it's it's the moment when cordelia and I'm thinking specifically a when Buffy had that shit fucking day and everyone's being shitty to her and angels ethnic season. Two angels been terrorizing her and whatever. And cordelia comes in like says something bitchy to to Buffy and then Buffy is, can you give me your home? And she's like, of course, and. Where you're like, there's a human here. Yeah, I also really like another very similar cordelia Buffy moment episode, one of season two when Buffy being giant pit. When she was deals like this isn't a good look for you. This is my thing. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, totally. So I, I liked this. We then we're like, okay, it isn't just like the bad girl that rolls in convertible and silly jock. Yeah, I. So that reminds me of what I wanted to say, why are all the girls so trashy? Because. Because. Soda trash, but like they're also super Christian. So wouldn't they be more like cardigan now? The, but to not break fucking Hyman is like dots like the version of their outfits. I feel like that actually belongs with the cardigans type and with them just straight up have sex. I'm just like picturing it's like similar to sharp objects, like the people that live in that town are like like whole? Yeah, holier than thou, but like dress like seal. It's just like it's those camisoles where the bra is also showing and the skirts so short. I'm just wondering if this was an artist choice mooring novel. I won't take taken from the novel because then when you watch the movie, not like that at all. We'll also this was two thousand nine that look was end that's true in look like skanky trashy look was like in..

"Act three women's weapons ghana role regan and cordelia are all women living in a kind of mythical britain but shakespeare's audience would have seen them through the lens of womanhood in the early seventeenth century so to see how king lear can help us understand power and giving up power we have to look at the gender dynamics in the play and shakespeare society if you were woman in early seventeenth century england you were legally possession of your father until you were married after you wed you belong to your husband the only women who had any kind of independence were widows who could inherit their husband's property even widows are really supposed to be in charge of anything but england had just seen a very significant exception to these rules queen elizabeth i spoke to clear mcmanus about this she's a professor at the university of roehampton who focuses on women and performance during the elizabethan era says she's imagined as this exceptional unique woman who to allow tubing in charge she's not setting precedents in a way i'm one of the ways that she manages to be a woman in a very thorough going patriarchal world is by embracing this idea of janati he has a very masculine cool in which coaches competed for her favor of being incredibly treasuring being incredibly worshiping but with no real hope of anything actually coming with elizabeth gone and james firmly empower many people felt the nation was returning to the way things ought to be a feeling that shakespeare turns on its head just like he did with the unification so this is very much post elizabeth's play it's what you do if you put a woman show and the pitfalls and of course gonna regan shi'as pixels that so just codeine in king lear all three daughters have more power than they're supposed to and nothing good comes of it gonorrhea poisons regan and kills herself regan perpetrates the most horrific active onstage violence and all of shakespeare and cordelia leads an army to venture father but she leads it to defeat so it was king lear simply misogynist play one that argues that women shouldn't have any power i think phase two productions have to be really cat with this fly because very very easy to fool back into some of the patents that all that in shakespeare but i'm not gonna blame the money died in sixteen sixteen for not being feminist but i will ask directions now to be feminist so how do you handle gone role and regan's evil that's one of the big questions you face if you direct this play i have seen some terrible terrible ideas about this in my time one answer always seems to be and this i find so shaming is that the costume designer just puts a lot of leather on regan gone role there's been some really embarrassing sort of jacket solutions that they've gone with the most recent one that we saw the antony scher had very strong on roll who was extremely reasonable but you actually saw her going mad because she was so much like her father that the two of them would snap at servants and almost identical ways the temptation to dress regan gone real in leather is so strong because his lear's daughters gain power they become more masculine gone regan become more forceful and direct and cordelia literally leads an invading army as it attacks britain and lear well as he loses power he becomes feminized remember when i said that lear is told that without the crown he's nothing well the word nothing is a major motif in this play it said thirty four times in various contexts including leers famous answer to cordelia that nothing will come of nothing nothing had many meanings in shakespeare's day one of those meanings which he used frequently throughout his career with slang for female genitalia lear's emotional outbursts would have read as feminine as well if our capacity of his dareus hysteria which in the relations to come from the roving wounds that should road all live women's bodies in coups united no end of emotional difficulty in trouble lear references this roaming womb in the play he says how this mother swells up to would line hot to how climbing zero aligns kind of crazy kind of absurd in one way but the rainy day speak of this dread and fear of the other on the other is just vanity as lear loses power he experiences potato of what it's like to be a woman in his society and in.
