So they have to cart out the dirt in buckets s O. The job could just drag on for weeks. So you know all this makes for a very, uh you know, you're gonna be waiting for a while.

Michigan To Pay Flint Residents $600 Million Over The City's Drinking Water
"Million settlement with residents of Flint over the city's drinking water crisis. The problems began in 2014 when improperly treated water corroded the city's pipes. And leeched lead into the tap water, making people sick. We wanted to hear what Flint residents thought. So we called up Jenna McDonald. She's a substitute teacher and mother of two young boys. When my co host Ari Shapiro, met Jenna four years ago in February, 2016 she had taught her boy's a really important lesson. We've continued to check in with her throughout the years, and she joins us again. Now. Welcome back. Thank you. So Governor Gretchen Whitmer called this a step toward making amends. How do you feel? What's your reaction to the settlement? Is like a little ray of sunshine it for me and for my family. My biggest fear is that everyone will forget about Flint. It would get swept under the rug, and no one will remember. So I'm very excited to know that our wonderful governor kept her promise about keeping this on her four part of her mind in their Flint residents matter. Much of the money will be devoted to Children who are six years or younger when first exposed to the contaminated water and your son's justice and Josiah fall into that category. Will you be seeking compensation? And is it enough? There is no amount that will be enough ever if each of us got the 600 million apiece that's still will not replace the damage that was done. I have very close friends who lost parents two Legionnaires. I'm still under the belief that my son's autism is a result of these lay a tainted water, so there's no amount of money. Deca, replace or even tried Tio comfort lifelong things like that. Are you going to see compensation? 100%? Yes. And you know, I've been thinking about this.

Advancing intelligent automation: Interview with Chris
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Malk. I'm your host Ronald smells or our guest. Today is Chris Townsend. Who's the area vice president of federal at Uri Path? Hello Chris Thank you so much for joining us on today. Good Morning. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah Welcome Chris. And thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at you. I pass hurt. Thank you I've been back for about eight months now. Joined in September of last year point prior to that I was at semantic where I loved their federal business for about four years on the cybersecurity side of things and prior to that I was at Cisco for about ten years and led their federal healthcare protocol. I'll tell you it's so refreshing. Cybersecurity is section important segment of our business. And what we do with our security you were always talking about. Haywood the bad things that could potentially happen to us in the technology we need to protect ourselves and now joining you I pass. And talking about our and the efficiencies we can gain and how we could make people's lives better by improving their day to day jobs and taking a lot of those mundane work off. Their plate has been really rewarding and very excited to be here great. We'll definitely you know it's kind of interesting. We obviously here today. We we talk a lot about television systems in a and machine learning and of course the role that automation has to play as part of that whole thing as well and it's interesting because we talk. I'll let you mentioned a little bit about cybersecurity. And that's been a hot topic for well over a decade DECA two decades of course but people didn't realize they go out cybersecurity prior to say the beginning of the two thousands. Because we didn't know didn't realize we had all these vulnerabilities in these systems. And now I think people are sort of making the same realization with intelligent systems. Like we have all these processes but like. Oh wait we can make the more intelligent. And this idea of hyper. Automation has gained popularity in recent years. And it's the the idea of combining a bunch of things together because not just about automations. Obviously more but the word hyper is all about so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with the term hyper automation? Can you explain a little bit about what it is? And what role does robotic process automation and other forms of automation. Artificial intelligence have to do with hyper automation. And of course the relationship to kind of what you're seeing and your customers absolutely and I love the parallel use the evolution of cybersecurity. Nearly two thousand. GonNa everyone was I connected to the Internet needed to protect their systems. And how that evolved to what is today and and the importance of it. I think we're really on the cusp of that right now. With artificial intelligence in our PA the evolution of how to use technology and apply if you look at the productivity of worker you know back to the industrial revolution over the last one hundred twenty years productivity is consistently increase over that time. And you know it was pretty dramatic in the beginning of the nineteen hundreds when we had assembly lines and more mechanization and an industry that really propelled that productivity when we moved into the I T H and of course introduction ubiquity ubiquity of it really accelerated the productivity of workers as. Well now we're seeing is. Productivity is increasing at a decreasing rate. That's flattening out. And the reason for that is we have all this great technology just providing a tremendous information and we're leaving it to employees now to sort through all that information aggregate collect analyze and it's really impacting our ability to be productive so the value of our PA and AI is to outsource that work were to shift that work of collecting aggregating and analyzing that data to robots to automation into A. So we're also seeing which is driving the shift to hyper automation. And the move to hyper. Automation is really putting. Rpa as the core of this evolution. And how we'RE APPROACHING AUTOMATION IN THE APPLICATION OF AI to improve productivity to offload this low value work so hyper automation in a nutshell aggravates. A lot of these technology capabilities across whether it's cloud. Hey I or PA other tools and systems to really accelerate productivity and accelerate the use of our PA. And if you look at the Gardner Studies Garces the top ten technology trends in twenty twenty. Move to hyper automation. And we're GONNA see a thirty percent. Operational cost reduction and the next two to five years as a result in sight broader mason.

Travel to Asheville, North Carolina
"I'd like to welcome the show music journalist. Bill Kopp who come to talk to us about Asheville North Carolina Bill. Welcome to show. Thanks for having me on to treat. I've learned a lot listening to previous episodes well and I was telling bill before we started recording that I about a week ago had a trip plan to Ashville. That's gotten trumped by some other opportunities. That have come up. But why should someone plan a trip to Asheville? Ashville is really ECLECTIC and Funky. It's it has food. Music Arts Performing Arts something for everyone in Asheville in one of the things that it's really remarkable about it. Is that not a big city? It's got very humid scale. Outside of the day trip. Everything here is either walkable or a few minutes drive. And it's a lot more artistic and cosmopolitan than one might expect of a city nestled in the on the Blue Ridge. Mountains excellent. Well what are you gonNA recommend for us to do? When we come to Asheville North Carolina a one week itinerary for example. I would suggest three days downtown two days on the outskirts and then potentially two or three days worth of day trips because in an hour of here by car. Of course there's a quite a bit of things to see and do that are different from the experience of being in Asheville proper. We started as downtown. What are we going to do downtown? When you're downtown Nashville. My suggestion would be to take as much local color as possible. Try to do and see and do the things that make Ashfield. You need that means skipping stuff that you could do elsewhere like golf and chain restaurant Golfing. We obtain restaurants those great but experiencing those doesn't really play into the things that make Ashville different from any other place will and when you say downtown. I assume we're downtown there amidst the skyscrapers. Not Not really okay. I haven't actually counted but I would say the number of buildings we have their over ten stories. Kp More than a dozen skyscrapers definitely not. It's Not New York City when you're walking down the street and you're in a canyon with giant tall buildings on either side. You could actually walk from one end of downtown to the other assuming you don't stop and there's plenty of reasons to stop in about twenty minutes about a mile across at the most. And what are we doing? Big thing to do here is to park your car and get out and walk around. People Watch dig into our local history which includes figures like Oh henry quote unquote favorite son. Thomas Wolfe Robert moog pretty much the inventor of the Synthesizer Buckminster Fuller Scott Zelda Fitzgerald. All those people have significant parts of their history. Spent living working and creating Nashville. So there's all kinds of things connected with them. Asheville has more art deco architecture per capita than any American city except Miami which is a little unusual the reason it does is because the city was in such dire financial straits after the depression that for many many many years the city was mired in debt and couldn't afford to knock down the old buildings so when things improved. Those buildings were renovated and fix back up. Now we have all these beautiful old buildings that we otherwise have and that you are likely to find in another city our size opinion down to be a little more specific here so if I want to see some of the best of our DECA. Let's say where am I going to start walking? In what direction. GonNa head start at City Hall. Which looks like a wedding cake okay. It's an unusual looking building there. A couple of their buildings right around but it started there and that's pretty much on the east end of downtown and so from there block West towards the mountain manager in every direction Ashville. Is it about twenty two hundred feet above sea level but if you go in any direction where South East or west. You're going to get to mountains in a little bull. If you go west about forty five minutes you drop out of the mountains down into the the Piedmont you drop a good thousand feet elevation. So we're right on the edge of the out range but we are in a valley so we're surrounded by aunts and you say go and People Watch best place in Ashville for people watching a place called Pritchard Park. Which when I moved here twenty years ago was a bus terminal and now it's a city park a triangular park probably nowhere near acres quite small. But it's a great place to people watch. There are permanent. Chess sets set up for people to play on and on Friday nights. One of the most quintessential Ashville things of all the drum circle. I saw pictures of this. Okay good people from every walk of life. Young old doesn't matter what show up. Some of them are serious poly rhythmic percussionist. Others of the May have never hit a drum in their life before. And they all come together and beat the heck drums and it's a communal experience. And it's not one of these sort of things. Where if you walk up with tambourine or a drum that you've just bought or borrowed or something you're not gonna get dirty looks from the local saying who are you. It's a very open welcoming thing and it's like nothing else and it's loud but in a good way and when you say drum circle I. Emily think there's a little bit of a hippy. Culture left Nashville. Am I way off base here? There's more than a little bit. Yes ashville is unique in that. I've been here twenty years and I moved here from Atlanta Bailey because I really wanted to make a lifestyle change. I wanted to get out of the rat race. A little bit and my story is far from unique almost everyone. I know who is a transplant here? Maybe not most of the people but it's quite a few of the people they've moved here because of quality of life issues. They didn't move here because they for some corporation that transfer the here. There's not a lot of work here. It's not that kind of the city so it's very very laid back. It's very Bohemian. And there are a lot a lot a lot of seventy year old hippies. Okay well and you mentioned some of well known people who have lived in Nashville including I think he's mentioned Moga and Henry and Fitzgerald there. Zelda actually died in a fire here in Nashville isn't it? It's not a lovely story. Scott and Zelda spent a good bit of time here and Thomas Wolfe who look homeward angel in fact. His novels are about Ashville. They're classified is fiction but they're really nonfiction. You've changed the names and he pretty much got almost got run out of town because there was a little too much truth in them. Perhaps so yes. We're talking quite a number of years ago. Celebrated novelist and his greatest work is from here. Enough time has gone by all is forgiven. Thomas Wolf House downtown is a popular tourist attraction. I can relate. I grew up in John Steinbeck's hometown who is much more popular. Now that he's dead kept writing about all the wrong people the struggling and up and coming and not the right people so wasn't as popular as my impression in his time.
Why Are We Afraid of Friday the 13th?
"In order to organize time. Human beings created calendars as part of today's dominant calendar system. Every year is divided into twelve periods called months consisting of roughly thirty days. Each all days are also grouped in two sets of seven called weeks and in Europe and the Americas a significant chunk of the population suspects. That bad things will happen whenever the Thirteenth Day of a month occurs on the day of the week called Friday like many human beliefs the fear of the number thirteen which is try skied. Deca phobia or of Friday. The thirteenth known as Paris. Kevi DECA try. A phobia isn't exactly grounded in scientific logic but the really strange thing is that most people who believe the day is unlucky. Offered no explanation at all. Logical order illogical as with superstitions people fear Friday the thirteenth for. Its own sake without any need for background information. The superstition does have deep compelling roots though and those origins help explain why the belief is so widespread. Today the fear of Friday the thirteenth stems from two separate fears the fear of the number thirteen and the fear of Friday's both have deep roots in western culture and most notably in Christian Theology. The number thirteen significant therein. Because it's the number of people who were present at the Last Supper Jesus and his Twelve Apostles Judas. The WHO betrayed Jesus was the thirteenth member of the Party to arrive. Friday has had a negative connotation because Jesus was crucified on a Friday additionally theologians hold that Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden fruit on a Friday and the great flood began on a Friday in the past. Some Christians would avoid beginning any new project trip on a Friday fearing that they would be doomed from the start. Sailors were particularly superstitious in this regard often refusing to ship out on a Friday and supposedly President Franklin D Roosevelt was among these ranks. Some historians suggest that the Christian distrust of Friday's is actually linked to the early Catholic churches overall suppression of Pagan Religions and of women in the Roman calendar Friday was devoted to Venus the goddess of love when the norse adapted the calendar. They named the day after Frig or Freya North goddesses connected to love and sex. The story goes that both of these strong female figures once posed a threat to male dominated Christianity. So the Christian church vilified the day named after them. This characterization may also have played a part in the fear of the number thirteen. It was said that frank would often join a coven of witches normally a group of twelve bringing the total to thirteen. This idea may have originated with the Christian church itself. It's impossible to verify the exact origins of most folklore. A similar Christian legend holds thirteen is unholy because it signifies the gathering of twelve witches and the devil. The number thirteen could have been considered pagan because there are thirteen months in the pagan lunar calendar the lunar calendar also corresponds to the human menstrual cycle connecting the number again to women but there are other traditions linked the number thirteen and Friday the thirteenth to unlucky nece in Norse mythology. The beloved hero Balder was killed at a banquet. By the mischievous God Loki. Who crashed the Party of twelve bringing the group to thirteen this story as well as the story of the last supper led to one of the most entrenched thirteen related beliefs. That you should never sit down to a meal in a group of thirteen. Another significant piece of legend is a particularly bad Friday the thirteenth that occurred in the Middle Ages on a Friday the thirteenth in thirteen o six King Philip of France arrested some of the revered knights templar and began torturing them marking the occasion as a day of evil both Friday and the number thirteen were once closely associated with capital punishment in British tradition. Friday was the conventional day for public hangings and there were supposedly thirteen steps leading up to the news. They're rumors of a secret society starting in the late eighteen. Hundreds at William and Mary called Thirteen's said to be groups of thirteen students. Who would meet in defiance of the superstition? The date was first enshrined in pop culture in Nineteen O seven when one Thomas Lawson wrote a novel called Friday thirteenth about a stockbroker who purposefully crashes the stock market on that day around the same time. Skyscrapers going up would often omit thirteenth floor. A practice that continues today. People Point to the trials and tribulations faced by the astronauts of the Apollo Thirteen Mission. And of course the wildly popular Friday the thirteenth horror franchise about sometimes villain Jason Voorhees and Camp Crystal Lake further spread. This ancient meam ultimately the complex folklore of Friday. The thirteenth doesn't have much to do with people's fears today. The fear has much more to do with personal experience. People learned at a young age that Friday the thirteenth is supposed to be unlucky for whatever reason and then they look for evidence that the legend is true. Evidence isn't hard to come by. Of course if you get in a car wreck on one Friday the thirteenth or lose your wallet or even Spill Your Coffee. That day will probably stay with you but if you think about it bad things begin. Small happen all the time. You're looking for bad luck. On Friday the Thirteenth. You'll probably find it

New technology could expand scope of South-South Cooperation, UN envoy says
"This is Natalie Hutchinson with UN News South South cooperation is essential and critical and reaching the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals Agenda Come Twenty twenty thirty and the digital world will play an instrumental role that's from Horford Chadwick the special envoy of the Secretary General and director of the UN Office Office on the Matter U. N. O. S. C. who explains how the massive sharing of information with countries of the south can be amplified by online tools ahead of the international day a of south. South cooperation marked on the twelfth of September. Mr Check spoke to you on news is lucky notice about the march launch of south south galaxy a new information sharing technology that works as a living database. He explained what new institutional commitments have been made since the adoption of the window side is plan of action for promoting and implementing technical nickel cooperation among developing countries better known as Baba also in March of this year. This year is very important for south South cooperation because was we celebrated earlier emergency sheer at the circle high level confidence on south-south Cooperation Inborn aside. This conference confirmed that South South Corporation is absolutely essential and critical if we are to achieve the two thousand and thirty agenda and the Sustainable Dana Development Goals because conscious of the South developing countries have shown answers to many problems that can be shared with other countries that have similar conditions at the same time there is a massive increase in the volume of Investment Trade Finance Finance dignam logical corporation so the scope of south South Corporation has expanded significantly at the same time the actors of South South cooperation have grown exponentially. It'd be used to be just a government to government type of collaboration now go through the process of expansion and also the validation that was given politically in Buna sides in the conference it costs to incorporate local governments the private sector Deca they mix sector. Sec a sole civil society organizations non governmental organization sation faith-based organizations and others so therefore today we're celebrating the borders of South South cooperation and in achieving the goals that we need to achieve an also the that it has a lot of actors and a lot of dimensions since about bother the glory in March. Have we seen already any of these steps. Meaning implemented in the past months is we have seen significant institutional commitment of many actors the region and the global level for example within the US system many United Nations agencies and organizations have adopted did or are in the process of adopting that don't south-south strategies. My Office itself has been commissioned by the secretary general. I'm by the conference conference itself to coordinate the preparation of U. N. system. Wide Strategy for South South Corporation also participated secreting civil regular thematic meetings by which countries another actors are really engaging how to implement the message the mandate that emerged from one aside so yes there is a lot of movement and we feel that momentum will keep increasing particularly considering leading deb coming a serious of summits that will take place in conjunction with the high level segment of the UN General Assembly including the summit summit on climate climate action called for by the Secretary General the one on the sustainable development goals. They want some more pathways wondering access to health all of them require significant expansion of south South Corporation. If we're going to succeed so therefore we have high expectations picked issue that this year will continue to see the expansion of the actors and the Copa Sauce Wrangler competition in one side is your office is launched the Seltzer Galaxy pro prototype and now it's our reality. Can you tell us more about this. One of the problems of Celso recuperation is sometimes we know who have been tuition that daddy serve response to our challenges but then we don't have the mechanisms this basis from where we can get that information in that context. My office tried to learn from the experiences of the main databases that exist and we decided that we're going to offer a platform as a public services. I robot public good to create a space where people broken access this information kind canot can identify what type of experience where it is which is to shrunken unsupported can help them with their needs and we're introducing a new element which is the utilization of artificial intelligence that is the new mechanism thrown all algorithm to facilitate the process of searching the process of matching so the ideas that we we recover next generation platform going beyond what exists today that has already the wine and the participation fifteen. United Nations agencies a significant partners that are going to join a narrow ready joining so we feel that galaxy will become an instrument to make a a south South cooperation more of a reality than it is by cutting a significant barrier to entry which is the lack of reliable our information. I relax over the lack of access to institutional channels to promote this exchanges. Thank you so much for historic especially envoy for South South cooperation. Thank you very much louder.
NBA Trade Rumors: Latest Rumblings on Anthony Davis
"When it comes to Anthony Davis. Let's be clear about something, this is an individual that knew that he was going towards a supermax contract if he had made all the all NBA team, all second team, a couple of years in a row, you know, was an MVP whatever the case may be the stipulations that come with being a super max the number one or two businesses that you can only get it from the team that drafts you. Okay. So when you look at it from that perspective for the most what anyway, so when you look at it from that perspective, this is a man, that knew he was going towards the supermax deca pay him in excess of two hundred and fifteen million in Lord knows if you saw didn't even long term deal could approach three hundred million dollars and the man made it clear he was willing to walk away. So if you made it clear, then, even before, David Griffin arrived, what would make you think he would change his mind? Now you have to take into consideration. It's not about David Griffin. It's not about Alvin gentry. It's about the fact that he may want to be in a different locale and people in New Orleans and other players just need to accept that everybody doesn't wanna be down in the big easy. I love it. Two restaurants. A fabulous. The crowd is amazing, the fans of fantastic. Put it ain't for everybody. And that's really the situation after the Davis has been there long enough to know what he wants and what he doesn't want. And if the man said that he wanted out, and he allowed that to be circulated in disseminated rather than trying to convince him. Otherwise, if you really want to move forward move forward by moving on from him and making sure you get the best package as you possibly can.
Plastic pollution peril, symptom of worlds out-of-control chemistry experiment: top explorer
"Explorer poll rose is usually found in the world's wildest places where he works with scientists to find solutions to climate change. But for the last two weeks, though, he's been in downtown Geneva in Switzerland at a major u n conference to encourage countries to ban widely used toxic substances and plastic pollutants. He's been talking to Daniel Johnson from you and news about what the average person can do to make a difference. So I'm here at the conference apart is here in Geneva for basil Rotterdam, Stockholm Convention because of my interest in discovering pollutants in the wall places. There's something about it. You're in these places. Imagine the beautiful monochrome polar life is not many colors. It's restful, and peaceful and exciting at the same time or being at CEO being on beaches wherever we are in. We're in the world's most pristine places, and yet you turned the corner. And we discover pollution either. What is invisible such? As all of our water samples, we take on all of our experts all over the world contain nanoparticles plastic. We can't see it. But we know it's in that water sample or just a few weeks ago. I came out from the jungle in Costa Rica, the Corcovado why it's an amazing place four different kinds of monkeys and sloths and birds of all kinds come out from that were everything was pristine, and as soon as we hit the beach. What did we see plastic is a disaster? So I'm here to help understand and communicate what is going on with persistent organic pollutant. You've talked about persistent organic pollutants or pops. There are a few of them that are going to be or hopefully going to be listed as a banned substances. Let's talk about if you them one of them is he f- a do you notice as well as penta deca fluoro-organic acid apparently easy for you and dictaphone which is an easy one. That's a pesticide. That's used in farming fatigue, vegetables and cotton, so widely used highly toxic. What are you hoping to get from this conference of? Parties meeting here in Geneva meets every two years while I'm really hoping that we get these chemicals listed and indeed band. I mean who would wanna live in a sort of giant global out of control chemistry experiment, and but for the good work being done here the counselor parties, that's exactly how we would be living. So I'm hoping that they get listed properly and then managed properly in the thing with the thing with the conventions is they provide a sort of comedy nominators shared platform for leaders and decision makers and industry to make smart informed decisions. Right. So how many leaders are we talking about? I mean, how many people have signed up to the Basel Rotterdam stock bottles lives. One hundred ninety six Rotterdam is one hundred and fifty nine and Stockholm is one hundred eighty one. So it's a force to be reckoned with. It's a global network of smart people really making a difference keeping us safe that brings me to another thing that I remember you saying while ago, how are there parallels with aspects doses? And today's unseen threats with this part of the. We do here is to make the invisible visible. You see something like PF away. And this unfortunately falls into this soup of acronyms one. Immediately turns off one of the good bits of work. They do here the council. Parties is trying to decode all that. So that we can understand it properly as everywhere it's in cookware. It's in sofas. It's in foam for firefighting and all the rest of it. And this kind of thing is out there. But we don't know it. But for the work of the firefighters, it was the firefighters let the PF L LA campaign because they were using it regularly. Of course in their firefighting foam, it's usually -ffective and their colleagues. We're getting sick too, many of them getting sick, and it became blindingly obvious. There was something wrong with this. So that's what's driven the point to come on. Let's get this stuff listed, and then banned simply with a specialist. It's in buildings. It's in our brake drums on cars. It said some of our pot work and all the rest of it. And I have a little bit of a history with a specialist because I was an apprentice for Motor Company in nineteen sixty. As in England. And we used a specis to insulate the tools from the big machines. And I remember then we would drilling machine and then we'll take an air hose and blow it I'm believable. Then a few years later still in apprenticeship it was replaced by something else. I forget the name of and we were still blowing around June that period. I suddenly learned that in the nineteen thirties as best as was a regulated substance because of the healthy facts were documented so as taken all of these years for people to say come on. We've got to do something about it. And I met some people outside who actually victims of aspects doses. And it was quite moving to meet them and realize they're here petitioning for smart decisions to be made in that illustrates one of the many challenges that counselor parties face one of the things that we've learned from this conference of parties is that plastics can absorb these persistent organic pollutants such as DD dog sins that frequently found in marine litter. So how is that initiative coming along here at the conference of parties to clean up marine? Plastics. It's interesting, isn't it that now the plastics awareness has reached such a high point? I've never seen anything like it with the global environmental issue. I mean, everybody go to any school in industry, anywhere. People are talking about plastic tickly, marine, plastics. And I'm delighted they're focused on the way that plastics can become sort of super polluters. You see the big things at know. I've been in remote places with the most perfect tuna blue water, we call it look at that. And the reefs of I live sharks everywhere, you know, top predators amazing life, and all of a sudden a whole bunch of plastic will come floating by raft of it. But we should know we must let people know is that as well as the big lumps plastic drifting by wants to have been seen long enough and begin to breakdown they become like, magnets and become pockets of super pollution. Some absolutely delighted that the council parties are focusing on marine, plastic and the first thing we can do is stop pudding as much plastic in the series. We do is no excuse for it. And I've seen that change in behavior. Now, we will. Wouldn't think of putting an empty water bottle on the beach and leaving? It would we we wouldn't think of putting a plastic box or food container somewhere in over full litter-bin and let it blow into the sea. There is a change in our human behavior, an industrial behaviors changing, we're looking all of the world's rivers and with the benefit of remote. Sensing we can now watch this material coming out of certain rivers. So that means we know where to go and stop it and start finding sensible alternatives law sensible alternative, I'm just back from Lubiana where I was in a plant where they take hundreds of thousands of abandoned fishing nets and turn them by great chemistry, turn them into nylon. Which is exactly the same as oil on. And I make luxury goods from it says leading through example and profit making people love it. I was going to ask you about what we could actually do normal people in the street people who haven't been taps inspired as you have by the natural wonders of the world, and maybe the solutions. You've seen here and there and the ones that you've just talked about what can people in the street do every day? Well, it is worth looking at the sustainable development goals. Look at target twelve point five which is all about substantially reducing the amount of waste, we produce and use more recycling and the way to do that. I mean, we all get frustrated don't me go out of your house. And you you go to put your plastic there, and you can there, and you you traveling on the or do these things and there's nowhere obvious to recycle them. Then we must realize every single action that we do works. Some neighbors of mine hate it. And they don't recycle anything. So I do it for them. You know, drives them crazy keeps me saying you gotta do something about this amount of white. What can we do? Learn about do local litter picks raise awareness with the counselors vote for the right people who have a mind by things that fit those goals. Similarly, you may work in industry and the decisions you make in the boardroom should be based on the sustainable development goals and say, well, look if we did this with make this much money, keep the. Shareholder? If we did that we'd make a good amount of money, and we would help answer some of these environmental. Why not changing our values a bit? You get the whole planet looking at something like that. We've got it on very optimistic about achieving the sustainable development goals all of them.
To Keep Track of World's Data, You'll Need More Than a Yottabyte
"Do we need more prefixes for numbers, especially for very large ones? Well, the international bureau of weights and measures is considering just that let's get more on this with Dr Chris Smith who is from the naked scientists that Cambridge University. Welcome to the program. Chris first of all, I think for listeners it may be news that the bureau of weights and measures to be I p m in its French acronym actually exists, but beyond that, what is the background to this story. Well, the bottom line is that I interviewed someone about ten years ago who was busy developing part of the square kilometer, right? Which is going to be the world's most powerful telescope. And he proudly told me that by the time. This telescope goes live the world is going to generate in the region of an exa by of data. Yeah. We got that very wrong because. World's generating hundreds of times more data in a in a year. And that and this is the problem. What's an exit bite them for that massive, what's terabytes or a gigabyte? Well, these real numbers that a prefix is in front of the word bind to mean, very big numbers. And they go up in olders of of magnitude three three magnitudes of ten. So for instance, when we're talking about a megabytes millions of bytes. I'm talking about gigabytes has billions of bytes terabytes is thousands of millions. And so on an exit bite is rapidly followed by Zetter, abide followed by a iota bite. Now. That's where the road in an as you can see that. We're actually getting close to the top of the SCO with y'all to buy switches one full of by twenty zero is because actually we think that within the next decade. That's roughly how much data we're going to have stalled on. So what scientists are saying basically is we need some new prefixes to describe these enormous numbers that we're going to start generates you not just the data that he physics than describing the universe as well because we're beginning to get into the regime. Where we need big big numbers to to be described. And we haven't actually got the scientific numbers defined to do that with. So this time, do you think the bureau of weights and measures will be able to predict this is of numbers that we have going forward when we're we're speaking about data will they create the right prefixes, or is there simply no way of telling. Well, the current suggestion comes from rich Brown from the national physical tree in the UK the national physical labar tree on Al effective equivalent of. What goes on in Paris where we do weights and measures full the UK, and he raised this point road to paper in the journal measurements. Which is what stimulated this discussion in which is in his paper. He put scored a couple of proposals. For new words that we could use going to be considered by the Paris panel in October his proposals all the Rona all NA, which would describe something with twenty seven zeros off to the number one and the quicker. Which would describe one fully by thirty zero. And the opposite end of the scope a really really tiny things. So a decimal points, and then a set number zero men the number the room toe for the mo- tens to the minus twenty seven and the quick to- tend to the minus thirty. So these are the numbers that putting Ford and they've been well informed by there's a mixture of Greek and Latin in the in terms of how they came to these these names, and it means that they using letters that we haven't used yet already and it does leave a be behind. So we still got one number when we run out of metro road. We got one more number. We could add beginning with A B. And he's already thought some suggestions above deca, which would be tend to thirty three an abundant. Oh, which would be ten to the mind is she three

For example, the number thirteen is widely regarded to bring bad luck in western cultures. There's even a name for this fear. Triscuit deca phobia other cultures have superstitions about different.
