"deirdre barrett" Discussed on Animal Radio

"And here at animal radio we love us some dogs. We love us some cats and we love us some chickens. Chickens again. Chickens. We are having supermodel summer rain on today. Summer rain oaks. Lori said earlier, is that her real name? Of course it's a real name. It's on her birth certificate. What a crazy question that is. But she is unlike any model that you know. And I hate to stereotype or generalize, but let me tell you this young lady here, you're going to like her doctor Debbie. She loves bugs. Oh. She actually went to Cornell, to study edit, which is oh, I really like her now. I understand it will ask her about this. I understand in her house, she has really kind of an ecosystem where she has to release certain bugs to counteract the beneficial insects. Beneficial insects is what they call them. Which is very strange. But most importantly, she has a chicken, and this chicken is like her favorite pet friend, whatever you want to call it. This chicken is mostly with her all the time. Wherever she goes on the subways, to photo shoots. And apparently it was a foster failure situation with her. She felt like she's quick to point out too that the chicken kippy is not her emotional support animal. Yes. That she is the emotional support human for the chicken. We're gonna find out more about this coming up in just a few minutes with summer rain, oaks right here on animal radio. Also, do your pets dream. Yes, sure. Oh yeah. Of course. You see their little legs kicking and they're twitchy. Twitching in that. What are they dreaming? That's the question. We're going to try to find out with doctor deirdre Barrett. She is an author and a psychologist who teaches it. And she's known for her research on dreams, hypnosis, and imagery. She's written a book on evolutionary psychology. Remind me to ask her if we should wake them up while they're dreaming. You do that, Judy, don't you? You wake your dog up when she's having a bad dream. Yeah. Okay, I'll remind you to ask her that, okay? Thank you. Someone remind me that, remind her. Okay, I'll remind you to remind her I can't remind anybody because I'm gonna forget. Yeah. I already did. We'll also be talking about noise phobias on today's show and those noises that scare your animals and what to do about them. But first, your calls for doctor Debbie or Joey velana, yes, he's here to answer your calls too. You can also ask your questions for the free animal radio app for iPhone Android and BlackBerry. And at the bottom of every hour we do a news check with miss Laurie Brooks, or should I say doctor Laurie Brooks? Because you got to be a doctor or something, right? You're so smart. No, I'm a nurse, actually, but no. You are. Not a doctor. You smarter than some doctors. I am a nurse. A human nurse. Yes, a human nerd. We have to clarify, because we call veterinary nurses do. Do you really, I've often wondered that I heard it in one vet office and I thought, that's interesting. I've never heard that before. It's kind of up and coming. But yeah, some places do it just so people can relate to who the staff member is, that they're looking at. So that they understand nurse. Technician doesn't mean a whole lot to that. Right. Right. Well, coming up, I'm going to tell you about there is a new social media network coming out. But it is only for wildlife. And how humans will be able to participate in that, but still keep it animals only thing. It's a great idea. I'm so intrigued. I'm wondering how this wildlife likes something with their little toes and things. Without that type of thumb, that's kind of difficult. We're going to find out at the bottom of this hour with Lori Brooks. First, your calls. Let's see. Hey Randy. Hey, how you doing? Doing good. Where are you calling from? I'm calling from orange, California. Okay, listening on coast, I assume, how can we help you the whole team is here for you? Okay, well, I was calling, I just have a little anxiety. My dog, she is about four and a half years old. And she is, she pulled up limp a couple of months ago, where she wouldn't use the right leg. I took her to emergency and they did a battery of tests and x-rays and the vet said that she saw displacement in both. Oh, okay. And so then I took her the recurred me to a surgeon, which I took to and they were showing me and I could see the dysplasia in the x-rays. But he showed me these little pieces that he said were in there and said that we should do surgery, but then she pulled up. It's been over two months. So he's only had an incident like once. And it lasted like a day and a half I kept her on bed rest. But it's like she runs in place and nothing happens. And then every once in a while, so it's like, I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. Sure. Schedule for the 12 for her surgery, but I just don't want to put her through it. It reaches well, she's young enough to do it now and so I'm just confused. Sure, now in what kind of breed wish she again? She is a golden mix. Okay, golden retriever mix. Okay, well. If I could, if I could have made a standard case description of a breed for elbow dysplasia, I would say either a golden retriever or a Labrador retriever. Just meaning I do see it a lot in those breeds, as well as some others, Germans, masks, and even dachshunds on the small side of the crew. Oh, wow. Yeah, so elbow dysplasia is kind of the equivalent of hip dysplasia, but in a different joint. And the most typical time we would notice this if we were fortunate enough to pick it up, is sometimes as young as 6 to 12 months of age. So in some cases, with young dogs that have kind of occasional limping when they're young, it could be sometimes the first hint that we have a problem. But a lot of times it really doesn't manifest at that young age. So we don't know about it until they get a bit older and we start to get the arthritis developing in there. So the trick with elbow dysplasia and what I would advise and I think please stand really most surgeons would advise is that the sooner we can intervene with surgery than the better chance of it being of benefit. And that does depend, I'm not on the ground and looking at your pet and the x-rays and so forth. But that's in general. So I would much rather recommend and follow through it with surgery in a younger than an older pet because once we're older, we typically are going to have a lot more degenerative changes in the elbow. The elbow joint isn't really a joint that we have a lot of room in there. So it's a hinge joint. So when they start to get these what we call osteophytes, which are basically little pieces of bone that start to develop associated with the arthritis, it limits the range of motion of the joint, but it causes pain. So that takes a long time for those things to develop and see on an x-ray. So we would rather catch these cases early, do surgery and we're always going to have some arthritis. We knew that's going to always be the case. But they have better return to function and less arthritis if we intervene when they're younger before we get a lot going on there. You know, her name is nunu. And trust her, which means a little girl in Chinese, but I asked our primary vet and she goes, I go, doctor vanny has got she's only four years old and she's as well as that's a lot of times when it develops,.

"Incubation. It's not just christopher nolan's idea it's a real thing. Christopher nolan did inception right. t- did all right close when sorry chris. That was a close one. You deserve better veteran. He wrote it like two levels up and it's fine. The final product was released in this level. I got it got it. So let's let's talk a little bit about that What what was the original thing that hit. It was with cores right. Yes that was the one we brought up previously. There's a harvard researcher at harvard. University researcher named deirdre barrett. She'd been working on this. You know in this field advertising trying to figure out innovations there since the early nineteen nineties and it was. I believe it was twenty twenty one. Maybe it wasn't it was earlier. It was twenty twenty one when she started working with cores because there was the whole thing with the super bowl. That's coming back now. They're so cougars and these researchers from harvard partnered up on an advertising campaign ran in tandem with the super bowl but not on the super bowl or in the super bowl something. They released around the same time and boy. You guys first of all talk about this. Just bring up in case you missed that episode when you think of course. That's a beer company. What do you think of. Just closure is well if you're driving if you're driving just imagine all the cars are coors cans coors is Tap the rockies. Right is that coors. That's the one i think mountains and flowing crystal streams and waterfalls and stuff like that that's right because they put that on their logo.

"But the details of how social distancing or forgetting your math, maybe what exposes you to it? And just to be clear. People are self reporting these dreams to you. Is that right? Yes, I have a survey going and it asked for any dreams that you have had about the Koven 19 pandemic. So I'm not saying the bug attacks are metaphors for the pandemic. By definition of the person who's put that dream into the survey. They think it has something to do with the pandemic. And as you mentioned a little bit earlier, you've studied people's dreams after other traumatic events, including after 9 11, how do the dreams that you are seeing now compared to dreams that you've seen after other crises? I think the biggest difference is that huge cluster of bug attack dreams that I mentioned, and there's a smaller cluster of invisible monsters that are going to grab the dreamer that I've never seen. Also, there are fewer ad people doing this. There's more stuff that is the bugs or monsters or bad animals or natural disasters. It's a little bit more focused on And dangers of the natural world. Also, I've never noticed a gender difference in reactions and I did some statistical analyses separately for men versus women and men were high on anxiety. But women had elevated rates of anger and their dreams of sadness in their dreams, compared to samples from normative times. And also they were dreaming just more. Unpleasant body sensation stuff that didn't have to do with illness. And I think this is because women actually are getting impacted by this more. They're doing the majority of the nursing a family members who get sick. The majority of the home schooling women are very disproportionately represented in people who've been laid off since the pandemic started. They tend to be in the less protected the part time jobs with no contracts that can lay Ooh off other night, so women are having probably the worst time with the secondary effects and a broader range of negative emotion. That's fascinating. Are you able to break down your data in terms of maybe profession? Am curious if you're seeing any difference between the dreams of maybe health care workers versus the general population. Yes, One of the questions in my survey is whether your health care worker I first opened the survey on March 23rd. The American health care workers didn't look very different than other people. They were just sort of anxious. Oh, my God, it's coming for us. But the Italian health care workers were already having these horrible traumatic nightmares about trying to get a Tube down someone's throat who breathing was so constricted. They couldn't get the tune placed or they had them hooked up to a ventilator and it's coming loose. But basically they had a patient who was dying and they were trying desperately to save their life and they were failing. And then as the pandemic really started hitting Parts of the U. S. I started seeing this trauma dreams and trauma dreams are just really different from other anxiety, dreams or nightmares. They tend to be More realistically, something that's happened by day with just a bit of dream like distortion. The typical dream from the average person is an anxiety dream, but not a totally out of control nightmare and the typical Dream from the health care workers is really a full on nightmare. Just as bad as you'd see in war zones. Oh, my gosh. So this year has been such a conflation of crises. I mean, we obviously have cove it on then we also have these instances of police brutality and then subsequent protests. We've had wildfires. And now we have this presidential election coming up, which for a lot of people is a really stressful event. I know you've been collecting Covad specific dreams, but I'm wondering if you've seen any bleed through with these other crises. Definitely I don't get dreams that are only about the election or on Lee about the black lives matter Protests because by definition people are putting in dreams. They feel like they're about the pandemic, but definitely once that overlap it when the When the demonstrations started, I saw a number of dreams where The demonstrations interacted with fear about social distance thing and Wearing of mass, and they would be watching a protest and they would be terribly worried for the safety of the protesters. Not because of the police violence in most cases, although there were a couple where even that was blended in like the police were ripping off their masks or something, but But again, the ones turned into this survey were about being afraid. Of the pandemic, So there were a lot where they were watching protesters and the fear was. The protesters were going to catch the the virus and they were terribly sad or scared for them. Just a reminder. I'm Kathleen Davis, and this is science Friday from W and my C studios. In case you're just joining us. We're talking about how dreams have changed during the cove in 19 pandemic. I'm talking to Dr Deirdre Barrett. She is a dream researcher at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She's also the author of the New book Pandemic Dreams. I'm curious as somebody who has studied Crises and the dreams that follow for decades. Now, how long do you expect people to still be dealing with covert related dreams into the future? If it becomes, you know, not our major health problems. You know, a year from now, Um, we we really got treatments and tell effective vaccines. Then you would expect to see occasionally I'm giving the virus and Occasionally, things that seem to kind of flesh back to bad things about the secondary effects of shutdown occasionally for the general populations, But In traumatized populations kind of tend to 40% keep having awful trauma nightmares for years after I think we'll see lots and lots of the of the more intense frontline workers having bad Post traumatic nightmares about covet for quite some time to come. If people are dealing with uncomfortable amount of Cove, it related dreams. Is there anything that they can do to stop having so many traumatic dreams? Yes, it's actually kind of different for the for the most traumatized and I'd really Recommend house care workers that keep having awful nightmares go to a therapist who specializes in trauma. But for the general public who just feel like they're having more anxiety dreams, and those are making their daytime anxiety worse, the best technique, which is is simply to think of what you would like to dream about. Maybe there's a person you're not getting to be with. Maybe there's a favorite place that you'd like to visit in your dreams. No late, So you want to fall asleep, saying tonight I want to dream about axe tonight. I want to dream about axe and form a simple visual image in your mind's eye of the person's face or the place or something about the dream you wantto have..

"Thank you. And Dr Steven Eisenstat is the founder of Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California He's also an author and creator of Dream tending workshops. Next for being here as well. Thank you, Jonathan. Good to be here. Well, Doctor Eisenstat. Let's start with you here. You had a chance to listen to my conversation with Deirdre Barrett and heard all these descriptions of insects and bugs and All these wild dreams that are taking place during this pandemic. What was going through your mind when you heard about what? Some of the things that people are conjuring up as they dream, But, you know, Jonathan E. I have been just a loose with so many people sharing their dreams because we're in this period of insecurity and threat. And the images and the dreams are just coming one after the next for folks often disturbing, and I think some of the themes that she was identifying are exactly right on you know the bugs anything that has to do with intrusion or threat? That in particular seems to be up at the moment. Yeah, and I mean, we know we're dealing with a tremendous amount of anxiety is is that what you think is kind of percolating below the surface? I mean, how are you reading into this on a deeper level on a deeper level? I think a couple things were going on. One people are obviously anxious. I mean, things were going on. We're bombarded. Hourly. Now, with the threat that's in the world, it's invisible, so we can't see it. So we know that there is something that is hard. We also know in our living situation. It's way different. You know, we're isolated, needing the maintain social contact many of us Not able to reach out and be with friends or being social situations, and if we are, it's not comfortable. So I think underneath. Actually, what's going on at bottom is not only fear. But you know, we're we instinctively pick up the idea that death is around and death is very prevalent in the every day. We're told how many people have died. How many people are in the hospital? No, The severity of the situation certainly affects us personally. And when our eyes are closed, and something else comes awake, we are indeed registering the concern or the fear in the dream time. Mark Blah Grove in the UK also want you to respond to some of the things you hear from Dr Barrett against some of these amazing images and these themes that were seen, I know that you've been recording a lot of dreams as well. How did you respond to some of the things you heard there? One thing that was interesting in some did. What did you spoke about? Was that it's the natural threats which recurring from the outside, and that's something that we heard as well. We've bean asking health service workers and key workers to tell their dreams to us so that we have a long discussion over about two hours with them. And one of them recently was dreaming off seeing outside that the leaves on the trees had changed and become unnatural. And she was trying to warn people inside a house for rent of party about this on they were ignoring her. But the important thing was that it was something had gone wrong with the outside natural worlds. And that was what she was trying to warn people about. I did think, actually, what one thing That really hit me. What theater said was about the fact that a lot of this was unexpected. You know, a lot of disasters or things that are bad. You may have restricted sleep, but this is must be one of the few disasters ever to happen. People have more sleep than normal. And so she myself included. This was a surprise that people were having more vivid dreams on that They were having these metaphors about what was going on to such an extent. That was one thing that really surprised me too. And and Dr Eisenstat, I welcome you your voice on this as well. We're actually having more time to sleep. Maybe than ever before that something you've noticed, and folks that you've been speaking to a cz Well, Well, I have. And at the same time what I'm noticing his people are sharing with me, you know? I'm I have more time to go to sleep. But when I am going to sleep, I'm agitated. And when I'm agitated, I know unfortunately that more often than not something nightmarish will occur during the night. And then that creates the grip that we all experience and and that creates the depletion of energy and wake up. And so you know, a lot of what people are asking is how can I get to sleep? In a more peaceful way. And I thought What did was saying was very helpful. Because what I'm advising folks as well that you know right at the time of going to sleep right before eyes closed, just evoke. A something that is a supportive figure of some sort, either from another dream or somebody in your past or a mentor. Somebody that or even the landscape, for that matter is something that I feel or the person feels supported by and that helps toe I think, nurture, sleep and begin. Tio. I don't know mitigate the kind of anxiety that sets in so quickly. Mark Blah Grove is that is that something that you ask people to do is well to kind of really hone in on that moment before sleep. Yes, I have been asked during some of these sessions. You know, what can I do to make sure this nightmare doesn't recur on one of the reasons we're getting people to talk about. The nightmares is in Socialising. What's happened to them and socializing these images that have happened to them. They may start to have a greater control over them, in the sense that the world will become less uncontrollable. And so hopefully the dreams might become less. Terrible Although actually, you know, they may very well be terrible because they are there to tell us how we're genuinely feeling about the outside world. But one thing that we have found that interesting is people who are having quite positive dreams because although a lot of people are furloughed, there's other people. I'm afraid who who are dying on no people who are dying and a lot of health service. Staff who in very difficult circumstances, But there will also be people who they are affected, but they're relatively unaffected by the whole thing on def anything, it's a bit more holiday like the nurse who told us about dreaming of the outside world becoming unnatural, told us during the discussion about how the world is now divided between those who are being hit. Cove it on the work to do with it on DH, those who are at home drinking wine, and so she dreads off people in the party drinking wine and needing to tell them what the danger was on there, ignoring her. So we will also have people who are possibly having really quite positive dreams on DH for them. Maybe it helps to hear the more negative dreams from other people so that we can all gain some understanding of what's happening to each other. Mark. I'd love it. If you tell me a little bit about the special collaboration you have with Dr Julia.

"She's asked thousands of people to fill out surveys where the participants described their dreams in detail. And as it turns out, there are a lot of common themes and images coming up, many of which you would never expect, like bugs, jail cells and lots more. So to take a tour of our nightly nocturnal adventures and learn a little bit more about what our brains are up to. We're now joined by Deirdre Barrett. Welcome. Nice to be here. So you've been studying dreams for decades. Looking at why we dream in certain repetitive images that come up. And I was wondering, you know, But before you started collecting dreams during this pandemic had you noticed anything strange happening in your own dream life as we started to learn about Cove it Well, yeah, actually, my my own Tio Explicitly. Pandemic dreams were shortly before I got the survey up. The survey went up on the 24th of March, And both of these dreams were more from mid March. Just Just as the news that this was really hitting badly and what the recommended things we had to do where I had a couple of dreams, and I make art from my dreams. So I made art pieces because both of these were rather vivid dreams. One of them was that I was in a beautiful library like like a private library of the house That just looked centuries back in time, and it was all cozy and nice in the library. But I knew that beyond this curtain window that there was something just horrible happening in the world outside, and the dream kind of shifted from feeling mostly cozy and just a little worried about outside Tio, unable to appreciate the library and just completely overwhelmed by what was going on. So there was this menacing feeling lurking. It sounds like something going on out here, And at times it felt like there was a war may be at times like riots and at other times like it was the era of the black plague. So. So when I woke up, you know, I usually make the most vivid image in the dream. But the library didn't make sense. And it was really the emotion that was so vivid. So I made an image that has a European classic plague doctor, you know, with the beaked mask wandering through a landscape of coded 19 particles in this kind of surreal Awful looking way. Yeah, Yeah. Wow. That was the first one, which I'm sure there's a lot to talk about there. But let's just continue on it. Sounds like there was a second one that really grabs your attention. Yeah, the second one. Just a few days later, I dreamed that I there was something poisonous in the air toxic in the air. It wasn't very defined, and I needed to go out into this with my cat for some reason, and I was trying to put a hood over the cat's head that would keep him from breathing the toxic stuff in the air. And just like he does when I'm trying to give him a vitamin there his nails something he doesn't know This is for his own good, and he was struggling with me. And so most of the dream was just me struggling to get the hood on my cat and just feeling very frantic and desperate that I was afraid I wouldn't get it on him before we had to go. Out into this, But then, toward the end of the dream, I got the hood on on my cat, and I picked him up under my arm. And I think I had a hood or a mask on But that was a little vaguer, and we headed out into this toxic air, and it wasn't like And everything's okay feeling, but it went from terribly anxious to feeling kind of guardedly. Like, okay, this is probably going to be okay now kind of feeling as I as I headed out with him. Wow, Those are really interesting, and you know, You're somebody that that studies dreams for profession that understands what's happening on the on the neuroscience level. But it also sounds to me like you're somebody that that you know. Notice is their own dreams as well. And Was there kind of this light bulb that went off in your head of like, Oh, my God, something something's happening. You know, if I'm going through this, there's probably something out there in our culture That's beginning to kind of penetrate our minds and our dream cycles. You know, I may be because I was so preoccupied with personal issues. I was teaching a dream course out of a teaching hospital where no coded 19 patients were about to be showing up. Figure out what I am Psychology trainees who were not deemed essential personnel needed Teo to do about that, you know, And I was just shopping for groceries and toilet paper and all that stuff. You know, In retrospect, something seem really obvious that I can't honestly say that I Thought ahead of time, which are that unlike any other crisis, I mean all crises kind of stir pair dream lives. But also the typical person loses a little sleep and most crises, But this one is stirring up their dream lives for psychological reasons. But then the stay at home ardor and the work furloughs and stuff have the average person sleeping Mohr then then usual, and so that contributes further to the vivid dream. It's because the strongest Carl it with dream recall a simply number of hours that you sleep. So I think if I'd really thought through what would be the effects of this that I should have known that we'd see a huge upswell in dreams even more than other times, But honestly, all I thought is kind of others will be sort of like 9 11 and you know, people will be having lots of fun. Interesting anxiety dreams about this, right? But I didn't I didn't really for see the everyone will be catching up on sleep and not using alarm to wake up and we will see like more dreams than That ever out of this? Yeah. You know, one thing I've read in your research, which really surprised me was that and you just kind of alluded to it there that that more we sleep, the more ram cycles we have, and particularly its the last realm cycle kind of early in the morning that that is can oftentimes produce the most vivid dreams or the most dreams and the fact that we're not setting alarms at five in the morning, and maybe sleeping later means that We may be seen thes heightened level of dreams in my getting that right? Absolutely correct. The last REM cycle is the longest and also it's got what's called rimmed and city just means you're seeing. Faster and more eye movements. But that ends up correlating very much with how vivid the dreams feel subjectively. So you're missing more than just that proportion of your dream time if you sleep one or two hours. Les, You're not taking off 18 through 1/4 of your dream time You're taking off more than.

"Four I am names Bram. And I'm Jake Bram Sad, but some people call me bucks brew. It's April twenty. And, everybody knows details his bram today's April. Twenty third and birthday is April twenty? Yesterday, yeah, but that that Song from Toronto Rama from the nineties or something. What do these these April twentieth? Doesn't matter boys and girls. There are a couple of other cool things so Earth Day is a day when you think about recycling and taking care of the earth and all those wonderful things we need to do. But today's world book. Day So. If you're at home, your board, you gotta break in distance classes. You just want your mom or dad to read something. Get a book address some of your favorite character. Yeah, it's also by the way that like the free daily everybody getting great now that that's pretty cool, so I would love to hear feedback from you. Know Little email. Yes, we're at. Front desk, l., e. dot news just opposite email. We love to hear from you. Okay, so he's our first story. It's sad and we. Passed away. Sometimes so today I'm GonNa talk about a painter who just passed away. His name was William Bailey and he was an incredible modernist painter modernism modernists. What does that mean Ariza like today? A little weird, because the word modern means like today like now, but as we can older, the word modern it changes. Yes. That makes sense so one way to think of it as like There was a time when realism. Thing right realistic. Painting you painted a picture of an apple, an apple and so forth. And so how William Bailey? He was like post post realist after realism, because we kind of Call Modernism Pablo Picasso besides being cubist painter cute brands. This is too much. He was also a a modernist painter because he didn't paint the way things like looked for real. Oh okay, and so William. Bailey painted like still life of like eggs and people and stuff. Yes, exactly but different because he panned with the platonic ideal Bram I don't know what you're talking about. He painted Plato. No, no, no, no, he so. There's a story a long time ago by this famous. Great thinker, whose name was Plato Plato? Yes, and so one of the things Plato Sam. There's a story about caves. You mean the cave allegory. Yeah, but that's not so important right now. Basically everybody out there. Listen close your eyes. I'm trying to think of a chair chair right now thinking. So this cheering, you're in your mind. It's not real. It's just your mind. News the perfect chair. ooh, okay, so this is basically the platonic ideal, ideally painting with the way things look the perfect way or something like that and so William Bailing. That's how he painted, was from his mind from his dreams, so everything has it's kind of weird quality dreams Oh. That's really interesting drew. Speaking of Weird Dreams Bram. There's a researcher named deirdre Barrett from. Harvard University psychologist, studies dreams. Brand, no one knows for sure why we dream. Oh. No, no I didn't know that, but teams are really weird, aren't they? Yes, and so people of notice that during cove, nineteen dreams, or even getting weirder Oh. Yes, that's true ahead of. My fever made of lipstick and my nose was made of tungsten. Anyway so, what are the possibilities? The possible reasons why people had your dreams now is usually. We have a lot of US stimulation. We have things to look at watch. Run around play meet Iraq with the now none of us do right. We're in our homes. We feel anxiety anxiety, anxiety's feeling, worried and We don't have much stimulation. You'll have much thing. Many things in our minds think about so at night. Our brains are kind of processing going through all of those types of things. We had this weird dream. That's really weird. So? It's really sad, you know. We talked about a French Saban longtime ago, maybe in July at. Saying things that now we're talking about Russian Sabato. This is pretty sad at fourteen sailors died. A top secret sub could the low shark, and they think it is made of titanium spheres spheres spheres just like a ball right so people. Really really strong balls. It made the sub like ten times deeper than what Americans can do. Oh, you mean. This of those found off. The coast of Norway was very strange. Yes, so, what's interesting about this is? They think they don't know for sure, but maybe Russia, they're trying to cut wires dow deep in the Ocean Arctic area, which really really cool. Oh, why would they cut cut wires? Well? No one knows it's just a hypothesis. Hypothesis tells what that means again Rim I. This a good guess so worried, because if somebody had the power to those cables, there'd be no little news years for example right there might be no TV. Email things that. Oh, I see! That's interesting. Do we own our home. Bram as you know, we have a secret arrangement with the Science Center that we live in, so we don't really rent it and we don't really own it. To be renting owning. Explain brand. Rent something you. You pay a little bit per month, but it's not yours forever right in, but you can leave whenever you want to, so that's kind of a nice thing about that, but if you own something while you can sell. You know it's yours okay. Why are you telling us well the new thing it's like it's called. A hybrid hybrid basely means mixed, but people can rent and own together. That's that's really weird. I don't understand that basically idea. You get some of the good things about renting, but you can leave when you want to. For example and you get some good things about. Like I. Don't know if your taxes and whatnot, but the scary thing is that the banks are like owning the House with you so I can make the cost of houses go up for people, and also it makes people like kind of Bhai. If you want to call it that, let's call it rented by right I like. This thing together, they'll get bigger things than they can actually afford. Oh boy sees who you're saying that you don't think people should do that. Yeah I'm saying be careful. Bram. Speaking of Science Center at the Liberty Science Center. In Jersey City new, Jersey it's got like what of my favorite things there's area. It's almost like a little zoo in. Tamarin monkey accused well she. Truly loved. The Spanish royalty like kings and Queens and speed take pictures of themselves with. Fifteen centuries pretty greasy. Yes, so in Brazil. Would you talking about Brazil I love Brazil, but anyway in Brazil. They're making giant bridge just for Tamarins and other animals, too. It's not like a rope bridge. It's like a really big bridge just for wild animals to cross over a big highway. Oh, wow, that's really really cool. I liked it a lot. To do there. What are they doing that? Well in Brazil? They have a big deforestation problem. Oh,.
