Offshore Wind Energy Increasingly Becoming Viable Option
"This NASA spinoff puts a new twist on offshore wind energy. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave. When engineers working on the aries rocket ran into a snag because of disastrous vibrations, the team sprang into action creating an innovative. Solution a small device was loaded into the fuel store for the second stage rocket as the device began expanding and contracting at a specified frequency. The fluid began moving with the device instead of with the spacecraft keeping the vibrations within an acceptable range. After NASA discontinued the areas project engineers found new life for the vibration fix a team adapted the device to help stabilize tall skyscrapers and high winds or during earthquakes. Now the device is being. Once. Again, for use in maritime environments, tests are underway demonstrating the devices effectiveness at stabilizing floating platforms offshore wind farms offer steadier more reliable energy especially for coastal urban areas. But Platform Movement reduces the turbine's ability to capture the win by lessening the platforms motion in the ocean. This NASA spinoff could make offshore wind energy of competitive option
Fresh update on "earthquake" discussed on Hysteria
"Drunk watching punditry. It's like okay. Great Way to meditate is to listen to a bunch of talking heads. A lot of talking heads who like practiced, what they were going to say in the green room before they got on the air talking heads you like no other faces look when there could trying to convey sadness. It's it's weird. Megan how about you? What was what was your experience I got one of the. You know it was like five pm here and I got one of those alerts on my phone Tony. Even know hallway still have the alert sometime like it's like Monday night football star things that I'm like I don't care about we me alone but this. I got the alert and I was in my car and I started crying in my car and then I honestly just kind of started eating and I didn't release Staw- I gained six pounds this weekend and I blame Mitch McConnell. But it just there it felt like. There so few threads of hope right now, and she was one of those threads of hope for myself and I think first millions and millions of people, and so then you you just feel that hope kind of leave your body and that was just a really sad. Realization, and then we had an earthquake Friday night out here in Los Angeles and I looked up and I just see my husband who's telling me a story and you just start shaking back and forth and I'm like what the fuck is going on like I woke up Saturday I'd completely forgotten the earthquake because I was still consumed with grief like there's kind of these waves that keep keep hitting you of of sadness and of. Just. Fuck. John How about you. I was actually in the middle of dinner with my partner family, my family engaged and I We. Were all eating and having a nice time and then her dad walked away from the table and looked at his phone and he was like Ruth Bader Ginsburg died and we were like, are you joking like? I think hearing that news from a patriarch felt like jarring. In this time and I was like we all? Like myself, my partner and her mom sitting at the table and we just all fell completely silent and like I wanted to cry but like in my brain I was like I can't cry in front of her parents. I don't know why in my I just can't cry in front of her mom and dad so we finished dinner and. We had planned on doing a bonfire that night.

Late Night Earthquake Rattles Los Angeles
Small Plane Crashes Near Los Angeles' Van Nuys Airport, Killing 2 People
"Now trying to figure out what caused a small plane crash that killed two people right after they took off from Van Nuys Airport yesterday. The pilot of the single engine aircraft never alerted the tower about any problems before it crashed into a parking lot on Hayvenhurst Avenue, about a half mile west of the airport. The plane narrowly missed several nearby businesses as he hit the ground and burst into flames. A woman who lives nearby. Tell CV to she knew something had happened, but didn't realise what itwas At first I was inside my condo and I felt a jolt so we thought it was an earthquake. Witnesses say the plane made a steep climb right after takeoff, then seemed to stall and suddenly nosedive into a parking lot. Your
Humans Have Caused the Most Dramatic Climate Change in 3 Million Years
"Recently Assad with some research colleagues at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, a look at a brand new science article in which are climate model for the first time had recreated the climate on earth over the last three million years, which covers the entire geological pleistocene epoch. The Pleistocene is so important as it constitutes a point of reference for life on. Earth. Because although sure our planet has existed for four point, five, billion years it's only in the last million years. That earth has looked at least roughly in the way as we know it, the continents were roughly where they are today. The North and South Poles were covered with ice. The atmosphere had a similar chemical composition to what we have today. Planet, Earth. Our earth has only existed for three million years. All, comparisons further back in time are quite meaningless. And the manuscript I hold in my hand is not just reaching. My brain is also striking straight into my heart. A deep humility settles in when look at the graph showing the variations in mean global temperature on earth over the past three, million years it shows that we have never throughout the whole plasticine exceeded two degrees global warming compared to our pre industrial average temperature of approximately fourteen degrees. Never. This means that Earth despite all the stresses and natural shocks from fluctuations and Solar Radiation Volcanic eruptions, asteroid impacts and earthquakes has regulated itself within an incredibly narrow range minus four degrees. Celsius were in deep ice age plus two degree Celsius. We're in a warm interglacial period lasting three million years. It's absolutely incredible. Especially since we know why. It's earth's ability to self regulate the ability of the oceans to absorb and store heat the ability of the ice sheets to reflect solar radiation the ability of the forests to absorb carbon dioxide and the ability to be a safe and store greenhouse gases. The planet is a biophysical self playing piano whose music sheet stays. Within the minus four plus to scale. If that is not caused for humidity than I do not know what humidity is. And a deep concern in hundred and fifty years. In the geological blink of an eye, we risk now tearing this Planetary Symphony to shreds. Let that sink in. The global average temperature is now changing hundred and seventy times faster than over the last seven thousand years and it's doing. So in the wrong direction upwards when the current orbital forcing meaning are distance to the sun and the current low level of solar activity means that the temperature should in fact, be slowing down. You don't have to be a physicist to understand that we have a problem. Climate skeptics like to argue that historically the climate has fluctuated so much. So why shouldn't it be fluctuating now? Obviously. It fluctuates. But we are now racing towards plus three to plus four degrees warming. Sceptics like to bring up the little ice age the time when Swedish King Call The tenth Gustav Marched His army across the deep frozen great belt and the little belt in sixteen fifty eight to beat the Danes or that the vikings grew grapes in Greenland during the medieval warm period. Yes. Of course, this is true but it all occurred within the natural boundaries of minus four and plus two degrees. And it's here within this sweet spot that we must remain for our own sakes and our future? In August two, thousand, eighteen at the peak of that year's drought and fires in Sweden and Europe. We published a scientific paper where we tried to establish whether we are at risk of pushing the entire planet away from its current state of equilibrium, the Holocene epoch where we have been since the last ice age. This is fundamental. Our Planet Earth can be in three different states. It can be in a deep ice age as it was twenty thousand years ago with large is. Extending over the northern and Southern Hemisphere with over two kilometers of ice above our heads here in Sweden an ice extending as far south as Berlin. This is an equilibrium state as it is not only lower solar radiation that keeps earth in an ice age. It is also the feedbacks caused by ice. As the ice sheets grow earth gets whiter, which means that more more incoming heat from the sun is reflected back to space more ice means it gets colder which means even more is and suddenly you have a self reinforcing mechanism. This is what makes an ice age and equilibrium earth remains. They're not only because of the external forces from the sun but also thanks to these inbuilt biophysical processes in this case, the color of ice. Earth can also be in an interglacial an intermediate state, which is what we have today where was still have permanent is sites at the polls and we have glaciers on land and the biosphere with forests, grasslands, and lakes roughly as Earth as we know it. It is these two equilibrium states and only these two states that the planet has been over the last three million years that is during the entire Pleistocene. But then there is a third state when earth tips over from self cooling feedback loops to self heating feedback loops, which leads to an inevitable journey to becoming a hot tropical planet that is four, five, six, potentially seven, eight degrees warmer than today where in principle, all the ice has gone and the surface of the ocean is more than fifty meters higher than it is today and where the conditions for live is fundamentally different all over the entire planet. This is what we call hothouse earth. Or Highs Zaid hot time in German where the article when we published it drew so much attention doing this burning heat wave in the summer of twenty eighteen that highs Zaid was chosen as the word of the year in Germany. In this research, we tried for the first time to identify the global mean temperature at which we are in danger of tipping over from our current state, the Holocene interglacial, and embarking on a journey that would inevitably take us to highlight our conclusion is that we cannot exclude that the planetary threshold. The tipping point where we kickoff unstoppable processes of self amplified warming is at two degrees. Bear in mind we are today at one point one very mind were moving fast along a path that reaches one point five in potentially only twenty, thirty years and two degrees in forty fifty years. This is one I would argue of the biggest. Challenges of all to test whether we are right. Can the planet cope with or Canet not cope with higher temperatures than two degrees? But. My conclusion based on the knowledge we have today is that the planetary threshold to avoid triggering high Zaid is most likely at two degrees. Of course, it's not so that Earth will fall off a cliff at two degrees. The risk is rather that we would then pass a threshold where the shift towards hindsight would become unstoppable. In other words, we face an urgency at the timeframe whether we pushed the on button on not triggering stoppable warming is within the next few decades meaning essentially. Now, if we pressed the UNBUTTON and kick off the great planetary machinery with feedback loops causing self warming, then the full impacts may play out over three four, five, hundred years before we reach a new equilibrium state hothouse. A planet with over ten meters, sea level rise temperatures, and extreme droughts, floods, and heatwaves making large parts of earth uninhabitable a planet we do not want a planet that cannot support US humans. This requires from us that we understand two different time horizons. The short term time of commitment. When do we push the unbutton but then also the long term time horizon when we have the full impact hitting on people these are different but ethically, I would argue only the trigger moment counts, we cannot leave a damaged planet beyond repair to future generations. So to summarize the decisive moment when we press don't press the button lies within the next ten to twenty years. With consequences for all future generations a moral, bum. Are High site article concluded that degree Celsius is our ultimate planetary threshold that we need to stay away from. This article actually came out six months before our climate modeling showed that we've never exceeded two degrees throughout the whole pleistocene, the last three million years. In Two thousand nine, our planetary boundaries size showed that one point five degrees is a boundary we should not transgress because then we enter a danger zone of uncertainty. So perhaps you do understand my feeling a deep concern of humility in the face of our latest scientific findings, which really only says, one thing tipping points are real and if they're crossed, they lead to unstoppable changes, which requires a new relationship between us and our planet, and that we realize that we are facing a new ethics. What we do today will determine the future on earth for all our children and their children.
Richard Hannaford remembers 911
"Well on this 19th anniversary of 9 11. Richard Hannaford, who moved to Sacramento in 2013 was in the twin towers during the attack, he says it's still difficult for him to think about. It's one of those things. He's just vividly remember. I'll just I will. Excuse me, sometimes stuff like Comes in and out. And you know emotionally, so it's usually stutter, but I know it's like the invention of the day. It's quicker. Today is they were 19 years ago. Now it's like Holy smokes. Hannaford had worked in both towers. But that day was working on the 84th floor of the second tower hit was on the phone with a friend. And we're talking kind of setting up for the day. On DA You guys were at the window and Looking over and they were talking about something, and I looked over in the paper flying around. In there. It's like something's really not right about this, and they came willing back from the windows are ones on fire, and I just jumped off phone looked and then I could see it and I knew people there. Like hundreds. Oh, and Quickly tried to call over there, but it just went dead space, no phone. And of course, they had no idea what had happened, You know, jumped up phone, got a couple people together, and we've made our way down the stairs. And we've got about 42nd floor. There's about seven of us again. That's when the plane hit the building. We're between sky lobby on the next floor. And that's when the plane hit our building. And it's also where I learned what Jeff feels like. It was really, really, very you could. It was like being an earthquake kind of We're in the stairwell, but and you could see To where everything was building was shaking. Ana So's my Earth. California earthquake variances probably helpful Um And you know we worked our way down. And, um We were about to 20th floor. I guess it was We saw there were firemen There was there was five girls and two guys on DH. We're kind of Come along and actually playing at the building. It was it was pretty chaotic, cause we had no idea we were all I knew. It's all I knew from the minute I left, the floor was get down quickly as we can. And One girl even turn back into sky lobby. Then I've got to go back. Just can't be that important. I'll drive you in tomorrow morning on the Just part of that memorial. She went back up or over. Yeah, She went back up just by my stations. I just wanted to say I know I will never does. So you obviously continue down? Well, Yeah, we kept we get down about 20th floor and then that's what firemen started coming up. So we're going coming down the outside and they're coming up the inside. I can still see some of these faces. You wonder. That is Richard Hannaford, who again was working on the twin towers on 9 11 and has since moved to Sacramento and married his wife telling him God saved you for

After 2011 Disaster, Fukushima Embraced Solar Power. The Rest Of Japan Has Not
"Before the earthquake before the NAMI and the nuclear disaster Japan got nearly a third of its energy from nuclear power. But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye. To the home she once shared with her husband and three kids and for Cosima it's less than a mile from the Daiichi nuclear power plant where three reactors overheated and exploded in two thousand eleven. They left fast only taking what they could carry. Their things left nearly exactly as they were the day everything changed to coffee, Cup sit on the kitchen table her daughter's old school uniform is laid out on a bed a calendar on the wall is still flipped to March two thousand eleven. clueless you the kit ago.

A totally reinvent ourselves after the disaster digging up this. She's here to give the keys to government officials. This house will be bulldozed soon and the land used as part of a storage site for radioactive topsoil scraped from the earth and the massive cleanup effort Tschumi heads upstairs. And takes one last look at the bedroom shoes to share with her husband Hitter Yuki. He died a few years ago suddenly. And then she walks back down to hand over the keys. The thing is pretty unceremonious though in reality she only says, she said goodbye to this part of her life. Disaster when her family piled into a car and drove as far south as they go to the southern tip of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Here, she's a single mom to her bubbly ten-year-old son Cagey who was just a baby when the disaster happened, he doesn't remember Shema at all her other two children are grown and live nearby, and she only has found herself within unlikely job running a small solar farm. On a big hill overlooking the tropical landscape Ma hidden is yet. She never imagined. My life would be like this guy when we first moved here, I was in my late thirties my husband was in his forties unanue issue we were like, okay. Do we get new jobs? So we decided to do this. We saw as investment for the future month on her husband worked at the Nuclear Power Plant for over twenty years and for him, the switch to solar was purposeful. He felt that nuclear power had betrayed him do on didn't He grew up really believing nuclear power was safe and then he lost his home to come see today the energy collected by these panels has allowed her to build a new life. The power is sold to the local utility company and brings in thousands of dollars a month when her husband died suddenly a few years ago she only took over the work and the family placed his grave in the center of the solar panels show me walks over to tall marblestone.

A message to future generations she explains looking away device. My biggest wish is for renewable energy to take over I mean look at my old home, it's going to be a storage site for nuclear waste. We can't deal with that kind of wasted drivers go. Joey's wish might not come true though her family started their business at the right time. The price was so generous and also delegration was sold loose. So anyone can register. Naida is the executive director of the Institute of Sustainable Energy Policies. In Tokyo, he says in the early years after the disaster Japan pushed renewables to help fill energy gap left after fifty four nuclear reactors were taken off line the. Government offered big incentives, new investors, lots of people like me and her husband jumped on board to build smaller operations. incorporations rushed in to build massive solar and wind farms but also the liberation was more strict compensation dropped. It got increasingly harder for alternative energy producers to connect into the power grid edith says, this was partly due to the big utility companies trying to maintain control and the government allowing. It to happen the sitting kind of a body of to north to Laputa increase anymore, the institutions make a big difference that's Jennifer Sclerosis of George. Mason University she studies energy policy in Japan, and she says, there is technology an interest for renewables in Japan, but the bigger power companies in government need to commit if people in place do not watch to implement policies to empower the economics and the. Technology innovation then it can't happen regardless of how advanced technologies earn regardless of how good the economics look many of the major utilities as well as the Japanese government are still waiting to see if nuclear power can make a comeback and renewables just aren't that reliable yet.

It's a real turnaround for a place where nuclear power ruled only a decade ago especially in the former exclusion zone near Daiichi, there are solar panels everywhere from small ones on roofs and hillsides to massive mega-farms along highways making use of land available after the disaster some of these panels are run by big developers and others are not. Lake the solar panels on farmer. She get Yuki Corneau's field. He's seventy four years old and this land has been in his family for generations he gestures around it. This is all my land, but it's nonsense. Nonsense because it's relatively useless the wind carried radioactive material here after the disaster and the government has scraped off all the topsoil in decontamination efforts. The farmers here can't really far much anymore. So small local power company came and asked sugar. Yuki if they could rent land for solar panels, he said, yes could you go I was really worried after the nuclear accident how would we get power most of his neighbors also agreed but that means everything is different. Now he says there were Rice patties all around here with tiny frogs that created a kind of soundtrack for his life now it's quiet. He misses the frogs a lot and he says, and he doesn't make nearly the same amount of money as he did farming. But She Yuki says he sees this as a necessary change. He has nine grandkids they all live far away now but they were just in town the other weekend for visit running through the fields. Suze my grandparents farmed here my parents do.

"Earthquake shook parts of New Jersey early today. The quake was reported around 2 A.m., near Freehold Township and was felt in much of Central Jersey. It's go live the Monmouth County WCBS reporter Sean Adam Sean. Yeah. Whole lot of shaking going on in the wee hours near Freehold. Nurse Christopher Rolls was up early, getting ready for work. Their whole strange like everything would rattle first. I thought maybe some downstairs Something of health fell but didn't really understand what was going on there. Early in the morning, 3.1 magnitude earthquake shook beds woke some folks up. Mama's County Sheriff Sean Golden says calls poured into their 911 center calls they were getting about. You know, people's windows shaking or stuff falling down off there, no picture frames and all that kind of stuff. So you know about 125 calls No reported damage per se in the area. Vibrations radiated out. They were felt as far away as filly up on Staten Island, Even in Queens. It's a bit of a surprise, Yes, but it's not uncommon every few years.

1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens
"So my episode today. is about the nineteen eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption. So now, we weren't alive then even though we were not alive, then it was you know years until Jillian. Many years. Until we were born. We are in our. Mid Twenty. S. So we're very youthful. Yeah. We say what's a CD or whatever I don't know anything I couldn't even pretend to be a teenager because I have no idea went technology. Don T TIKTOK ON THE TIKTOK You know on the TIKTOK so. Nineteen Eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption has a lot of parallels to what's going on in the world today, but it's an interesting story. So to to start with for our non US friends and Non West Coast friends, I didn't know the details about this when I started researching it but Mount Saint Helen's which is known as a lot lot to the indigenous lets people and Lou wit. Luella cloud to the click a tat is an active stretch of Okano located in. Skamania. County. Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States I. Apologize to the Washingtonians. If I pronounced Skamania county your Skamania county incorrectly. I'm sure I will get an email about this. Fifty miles eighty kilometers northeast of Portland Oregon Ninety, six miles or one hundred and fifty four kilometers south of Seattle Washington. So to get a sense of where Mount Saint Helen's is. If you're thinking of both Washington state and Oregon is roughly like. Square ish rectangular ish in shape with Washington, in the north and Oregon just below. Mount Saint Helen's is in the lower left quadrant of Washington state near the border of Oregon. and. She's roughly halfway between Portland, and the Portland Oregon and Olympia Washington, which is the Washington state capital. Okay. also relevant northeast of Mount. Saint Helen's is what's called Spirit Lake. And there's a bunch of little rivers and creeks in that area just due to like the geology of the area but almost directly north of the mountain is the north fork toodle river. River toodle or Poudel T. O. U. T.. L. E. Title River. So. Also? Mount Saint. Helen's takes its English name from the British diplomats. Lowered Saint Helen's is a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late eighteenth century The volcano is located in the cascade range is part of the cascade volcanic arc, which is a segment of the Pacific Ring of fire that includes over one hundred and sixty active volcanoes and for the record before the explosion mount. Saint, Helen's stood at nine, thousand, six, hundred and eighty feet high. So. They knew it was part of the ring of the ring of Fire Okay Yeah Yeah So. They knew as part of the ring of fire. It had experienced some activity throughout recorded history but it. It remained dormant basically from its last period of activity in the eighteen, Forty S and eighteen fifties. So by one thousand, nine hundred had been more than one hundred years before there was any like really significant activity that includes ash like little burps and like any kind of flow or anything like that. So. At this point people were pretty complacent thinking nothing's going to happen anytime soon it's fine like it's a dormant volcano for all intents and purposes until we get to the spring of nineteen eighty. Okay. So, there were several small earthquakes beginning on March fifteenth of that year indicating that magma may have begun moving below the volcano also just as an f. y. we talked about natural disasters on episode sixty one which was called here I am rock. You like a hurricane I talked a little bit about that about volcanoes in that episode. So if you want to refresh your memory about the basics of what's in a volcano check that out episode sixty one, it's very good. Thank you. So on March Twentieth Three Forty Five PM Pacific Standard Time, which everything will be NPS T. Shallow magnitude four point two earthquake centered below the volcano's north flank signal the volcanoes return from one hundred, twenty three years of hibernation. A gradually building earthquake swarm saturated area seismographs, and started to climax at about noon on March twenty fifth reaching peak levels in the next two days including an earthquake registering five point one on the Richter scale. A total of one hundred and seventy four shocks of magnitude. Two point six greater were recorded during those two days. That's a lot. Yeah. So geologists in that area are like look is no not a great sign. Initially. There was no direct sign of eruption but small earthquake induced avalanches of snow and ice were reported from aerial observations. So this mountain is shaking and you know stuff is falling off. It's not it's not nothing. At twelve thirty, six PM on March twenty seventh phreatic eruptions which are explosions of steam caused by magma suddenly heating groundwater. So that's like a quick like spur. Of, like Ash and Steam K ejected and smashed rock from within the old summit crater. Excavating a new crater, two, hundred and fifty feet wide. And sending an ass column about seven thousand feet into the air. So you yeah, knock. Great. So by this date along, east trending fracture system had also developed across the summit area. So there's cracks forming in the summit. This was followed by more earthquake swarms in a series of explosions that said ash even higher above there. And most of this ash fell between three and twelve miles from its fendt. But some was carried hundred fifty miles south to bend Oregon or two hundred and eighty five miles east to spokane Washington. So the ash went pretty far and those who were like what the What is happening here? So? then. A second new crater and a blue flame were observed on March twenty ninth.

"Stuff, we we took to twitter. and Said Hey on an upcoming something to wrestle. We'll be discussing the one and only earthquake have questions for Bruce. Drop them in the replies and be sure to use the HASHTAG. Ask Bruce. If you've got a question for next week's episode, you should follow us at Pritchard show. That's where you'll be able to ask your questions. We should mention that I can tell that this was Dave Silva. Who posted this tweet looking for questions because all of the pictures that were chosen. are of earthquake when he's a part of the national disasters, he's got that natural disasters look which. I know that's our pals. Let's see to some of the questions here. There's no way we can tell and we've got like three hundred different questions fringes of the show, a bad money slam rights. If this man came along ten years later in wrestling, he could have been one of the biggest things during the Monday night war. What say you Bruce and he included a photo that I think everybody should go see over at Richard Show, and it's ten to in Japan, doing a drop kick. And he's got some height some serious high on the dropkick. And I? Think a lot of people probably assume that his style and his physical ability is going to be one thing based on the number on the scale. But then you see and pull out a traffic like this and you're like what what the fuck just happened. What do you think if he was Maybe coming along ten years later. Would have been a different story for him. I. Thought he had a pretty damn good story. I thought the tend to have a hell of a career in great run with Hogan and was a top star for a long time I. Would he have done well ten years later? Yeah, sure definitely would have, but I don't think there's anything wrong with time he came by and. What he did during his time. Lots of questions like this you made me cry on earthquake. Squashed Hogan, you bastard while earthquake, not given the title that comes to us from Phil Milan, but lots of people had the question. Hey, he's working on top with Hogan. Was He not given the title, and I know in the past Bruce. You've told US wells, baby-faced territory and I. Get that, so we gotta have that, but. Macho man was world champion. He was a bad guy and. Course. We're go that. Sargent slaughter is going to be world champion. He's a bad guy. Couldn't that same thing of applied for earthquake in this era? In get yes, but everybody can't be champion all like that guy. Why isn't he championed? Are Klay earthquake was opponent, and not everybody can be Champi. The Rosen coaster writes the reputation over the years of earthquake was the he was one of the safest big men to work with wrestling. If that's the case why did you work with the undertaker who was tasked to work with big men and lacked and skill? An earthquake possessed is interesting. I don't remember seeing an earthquake undertaker mass that ever happened to the best of your knowledge. No! I don't think they will pretty much heels at the same time and but I. Don't really know other than it just didn't pan out at the time. Would have been a hell of would have been a hell of a programs you asked me. The Wagner has a couple of questions here. He says who's looked forty most of their life more. Aren't Anderson or JJ Dylan. All God jet will first of all. Jay's never looked forty in his life. I'm Jay Jay went from like fifteen fifty two. State Jj always look like an old man. He's always been fifty I. Agree With You, yeah! Yeah John's John's after I thought the first, time. That I met him he was much older. And then when I found out is the same age as me, Damn. Given the tentacles jet JJ never ever ever looked forty arm same thing. Armed look like aren't looks like he's like. Forty nine and a half. Since the time that he cut his hair from being Mardi Lundy with as little bleach, blond hair shit. Jonathan wants to know. What's the difference between a Canadian earthquake in a regular earthquake. Big Difference about seventy percent. While I was going to say the Canadian earthquake costs more money and. Doesn't offend anyone A. A..

"Called the S WS wrestle dream. It's got sixty, four, thousand, one hundred and sixty eight folks in the Tokyo Dome. Earthquake is going to wrestle while I'm going to butcher this Koji Ca Tayo. In a battle of two former sumo wrestlers, John picks up the wind and six minutes and ten seconds. And melts would say believe it or not? This mascot, the most heat of the card from a crowd standpoint. This was the best match on the card, but not from a wrestling standpoint. Both of these guys were very famous in Japan. A sumo wrestlers before they got into wrestling. And could tell hasn't been able to shake his bad boy image with the general public. while some of the hardcore fans are beginning to cut US some slack when he works before a crowd that has largely not wrestling fans. He becomes the most over he'll on the card. And turned tinto was the most over face on the card and everything. Both men did got a big action. The work itself was described as sluggish, but not awful with tinted, dominating most of the way to the big POPs, two and a half stars. Two nights later they're supposed to have a rematch, but ca- Tayo want mark with Santa when the got in the ring? It gets that'll fighting pose with his fingers pointed out symbolizing the he's GonNa. Attack John's is John gets visibly upset. Dares of new Mecca move which he didn't and not long after he legitimately kicks the REF and gets the huge. The, takes the MIC and tells the fans. That wrestling is fake. And he refuses to lose to him a second time as well scripted. Plug is quickly pulled on. Mike and he's fired from the company. What A fucking story man! What are you remember hearing about this? Well did good with the first part of. Is Name Is. It's towel. Kojic atoll in Coachee was a sumo champion that. We brought over with ten room. The, the attack team do different things and green as grass, but had a fucking chip on his shoulder. You wouldn't believe. He walked in failing that he was tougher bigger better than anybody that we had on the roster. In carrying himself that way in the locker room. So that? Right away, people were looking at him like okay. You Make Bastard Yo, hey, we're putting you over in here, but if you WANNA go, we'll go type thing. I remember the IT I it was. demolition. That were in there with him. Bryan Adams worked with them a little bit. In, he was just Shitty, green stiff. And considered himself shooter. But. He just was kind of an asshole really. By the time they got over there the rematch for Japan because John had been a sumo in had been good sumo someone that people knew about. They wanted that match. They wanted the. Battle of the SUMO's turning pro. John was John Actually was willing to do business. He would have I'm sure John would done anything that was asked him to do. When Catala was asked to do business, he balked at it and was like. Wow, I could kill this guy in real life John took exception to that. Saying if you want to go out, there, shoot, we can go out there and shoo. Think when the got into rank, Tau tried a little bit, tried tent a little bit and realize that Hey, if you wanna back their shoot, you're GONNA lose motherfucker. The head to match than they came back. And it's time for the next match on whenever the second or third I have whatever the hell of laws and towel tried to shoot on, tend to again. Antenna shut. Him Down. Which Anger Guitar even more because there'd already been. Several days of promos amongst the boys and Rheinland tent up Ryland Catala up. and. Things like God damn He said he's GonNa Fuck in throw you into the third road an incident when he gets you down. He's GonNa make you cry like a little bit. She something about sticking up your ass. and John's getting. Little riled up. The other side the other telling Tau. FUCK THAT BIG FAT Fucker! You can't do anything. He's been in the in the fake wrestling world too long. Have your way with him embarrassing. So by the time they got the ring both guys. Thank were pretty well hyped up. On. I'm going to show the other one. WHO's boss. and. Tend to very quickly. Let Ca- town know that? He was the boss. In Cataldo, towel rolled out and cut the. The famous Japanese prime. All this is all. Fake, it's fake wrestling all at other wonderful crab. And Ten. offered to let him come back in the ring. He wasn't about to do that because he knew he would get his ass kicked. He being tau. Coaxed out stuck his tail between leads and headed back to the house. It was done with pro wrestling for a while. Probably a wise idea. Yeah he was. He was a Dick. Really was. Probably won't Allen me one above Dave, Meltzer shaver people, but he was. From here earthquake gets in a brief feud with Jake.

"Seventeen was much shallower the patch of full that slit was between about six kilometers deep and about three kilometres which encompasses the the four kilometer depth the which the injection took place that suggestion isn't that the water pumping down what's actually directly driving these big earthquakes i presume no the full must have already been very close to the condition to slip so there were stresses they're already ready but the the point is whatever cools the earthquake at that time was a consequence of some very soon change in the state of stress and what it can do that in some way the water might do that by a mechanism such as if water were to get into the fault it might react chemically with the rox that we can the fault by dissolving some of the minerals and that might lead to the full being readily able to slip as opposed that support mechanism which might account for time delay because of the time takes for chemical reactions to take place but alternative mechanism is the fluid pressure might directly alter the state of stress sort of leave the full type in in flight that's right but if that was happen you'd expect to an earthquake straight away and not after two or three month time delay so you think this mystery will be cleared up i'm sure it's the definitive answer will will arise it'll probably take another year with estimates an international panel is working on that answer right now meanwhile geothermal operations have been suspended to avoid any additional seismic hazard rub westwood study appeared today in the journal science the geothermal facility was intended to be a low carbon source of energy an offset to global warming and there's been a lot of discussion over the is whether some plants could also offset the effect of rising co two more co two more chance l capture it through photosynthesis and the faster.

"Well the idea is to try to extract geothermal energy as a lou carbon energy source so to bowls during too deep bulletholes both about full found mrs deep the earth surface then right next to each other one of them is vertical the other deviates to the side is drilled us an angle and reaches four thousand meters depth about six hundred meters to the side the plan was to hydraulically fracture the rocks in between to create a link so water consecutively between the two boreholes will would there be pumped passive one of the bull holes and used to supply heats to a swale electric power plants and then once the water is cooled then be back into the through the other bull hole so this is a bit like a subterranean sauna where you're sort of throwing cold water on the hot rocks and letting as it were the steam rise that the idea is just a heat water the pumped down those that right up solutely that's a very good analogy was there any connection in terms of the timing between these two quakes and the experiments that you would doing with pumping this water in the first of the earthquakes in in the autumn of two thousand sixteen occurred after the first injection projects in the film site and so we thought at the time about whether the might be a connection and decided it was most unlikely because of the distance involved the separation by about forty tsa's then the second earthquake occurred in november twenty seventeen which is much much closer within just a few hundred meters of the points which the the fluid was injected and it is possible that was triggered by the first of the to earth quakes and would have happened anyway in which case it's a coincidence that is very close to this geothermal site on the other hand is possible this must have been coolest by the fluid injection at the jeff will site and and that is point which the investigation has reached the other thing is how how deep with these earthquakes these are things have happened underground the one in the autumn of two thousand sixteen was was a conventional tectonic earthquake so it was a step of about ten kilometers or soap the quake in november twenty.

"And there was an earthquake year earlier that's right there was a previous earthquake in september twenty sixteen which occurred about forty kilometers further south easy to decide to be carrier at all the rabija faults running through the area that were linked if people familiar with plate motions and the geography to the east of career you have the sea of japan which developed as a result of rift ing away from the eastern parts of asia about twenty million years ago and a set of faults casinos across south korea formed at that time one of these faults slipped in the earthquake in september twenty sixteen a gain of about magnitude five and a half this was crisis surprise but subsequently people have checked the historical records and discovered centuries ago the earlier earthquakes in roughly the same place so this is clean active foot zone protective probably quite a slow slip rate is it takes up some sweet the proportion of the plate motion between the eurasian plate on the ozanich plates in the pacific basin preps ball more work might have been done looking at these very obvious geological structures in in region but people have now started investigating them in detail and prehistoric earthquakes civil sabine undentified radiocarbon dated so it's well known that it is an active fault but not active in the way that one thinks of japan is and so on being active in the the interesting thing in your involvement in this project is the there is this geothermal experimental pilot plant going on but what what's that about.

"Welcome aboard science in action from the bbc with me roland pease this week we learn about the possible collective effect of bins of tiny things swimming beneath the ocean waves we're trying to understand the difference between an animal swimming on its own in an animal swimming in a huge school or swarm and so he put thousands of them in the tank and then essentially lure them toward the light and that causes a massive migration through the tank and the surprising backwash behind prone power later in the program also the fungus brought from afar to europe by global trade this ravaging european forests and the power of plants to offset rising co two levels f mature grasslands worldwide are behaving like our experiment did these warm climates before grasslands may be really better suited to help us with carbon removal from the atmosphere unexpected results from a twenty year experiment in the prairies of minnesota we start in south south korea where an experiment in geothermal energy who's been linked to an earthquake that hit the town of pohang last year it wasn't particularly powerful magnitude five point five but people were hurt and buildings were damaged and career is geologically quite stable compared to say its neighbor japan that said there was another earthquake not far away the before so clearly these events were worth investigating glasgow university's rob west away is a hydraulics engineer who took part in the geothermal operations which involved pumping water down into deep hot rocks and he's part of the team who've been looking to see if that was connected to the unexpected seismicity bush to this paper concerns the earthquake occurred on the fifteenth of november last year just outside the city of pohang in south korea this was a magnitude five and a half so it was large enough to cause damage to injure a number of people.
