"You also say in your book. Repeatedly love is life. And i just want you to talk a little bit about what that means to you okay. Let's see what i wrote in the book for love. We can look it up. There is no way to envision life without love nothing is more important. Love is scaring sharing and giving unconditionally. It is being thankful and paying attention to others. Love is owning it. And then for life i wrote. Life is existing growing creating an owning it. But the truth is that you have to make love to give lives right So love and life is so linked you love lives you wake up and you are grateful for lives you grateful for the sun new grateful for spring to arrive slow beautiful sunsets you know that is live but it's also love but they're so interchangeable. I love that. I have a question about this current climate because in your first book you talked about specifics gave about traveling and traveling with your children and i loved when you talked about traveling with. Your children was important because you were no longer sort of the parent you were experiencing spending together with them and you'd say so we're we're looking at this together but what has this sort of blanket.

"To all of those who have reached out to me to see high. I have been through the last couple of days. I've been catching up with quite a few people back home in the uk and to ireland. And i'm lucky that my friend. Marie is working on a rescue pond for me if needed so that won't be needed. But you know she's gonna look into ways in wichita build a bit of a raft to get myself to a neighbor island at an airport if the worst case scenario happens. I just don't know. I don't know what's the best way i can help you. Brainstorm ideas of how to get off the island. Go on asta away right. American nine hundred. Hope you instruct you and how to build an epic robbed. That's a good option for she number one again. If you know that you're stuck to at least may just because the flight situation you could get involved with like cleanup operation might be quite fun but if it's the people that need to get off the island and there's a safe time to do it because if you don't get off their lows again tricky account i can imagine how that decision for you today. What if i get off the islands and it gets better. Oh was that just a waste of like three weeks when it could have been honesty weeks in paradise and on the beach every day. Been learning how to swim listening. Know all that kind of stuff. But then what if it can't get back into the atlantic in because of their is things. But then i'm thinking actually if i can't get back onto the islands that probably means there's ashqulon issues which means would probably be one the anyway. Yeah but also committed a whole year. I feel really strongly that. I want to stay here for the whole year. And i'm like actually that a bit of a cop out when the going gets tough just like fly back home. Only still i feel like i really want to support barbados as well. So i'm going to be endorsed the whole time. It defeats the purpose of being here and navy. The actually what i could do is press the pause button and come back when things get back to normal and continue from an x nine months. But no idea to myself staying longer barbados anyway. So in barbados to celebrate my podcast nomination an esa. Thank you for tuning in each week over the last month. I have a special offer for you as you will have mentioned.

I will never recommend hotel or experience that i have not tested myself head over to life hyphen in hyphen barbados dot com forward slash offer to pick your free consultation. Night life in barbados referencing. The nineteen seventy nine eruption and it was just want what it was like back then so a friend of mine put me in touch with vic fernandez as he is a prominent broadcaster in barbados for the weekend so i have a couple of perspectives of leaving my home in one condition and returning to see it in another condition. At the time. I lived in another very traditional barbadian home just below. Oyston's was on the main road leading oyston's and every year we have the oyston's fish festival takes place on the easter weekend. We'll good friday being good friday. It's quite quite sunday's again fairly low key but the monday everything goes into high gear on. It's like a carnival. This music is people this dancing in the streets. But there's traffic on hundreds thousands of people and you live right on the main lebanese place to live for the other three hundred sixty four days of the year but so every year my first wife and i we would. We would just leave the island on this occasion. We went to trinidad visit the in laws. And we'll left on the thursday evening and returned on the tuesday morning so my perspective gives you pre and post this. What we are now is nothing like what was experienced back that liberally of breeze unintended in comparison to this boogie. Aware the last time ryan to moscow to happen. It was there. We were weird but you know the thing about volcanoes quite unpredictable. You know the dome it could be coming on. It could remain got a month so while the activity have been heighten. I i don't think they had hit red alert yet but it went. It seemed to happen very quickly chance. Of course. I got the news where i was that you know. We ravin volcanic ash again. It didn't affect all of the isla. It was mainly in the south. I believe the ocean was right across the road from us. You know the volcanic asche arrived and covered whatever part of the island largely from my experience. It seemed to have been more Be wrong but that was my understanding by saturday. Holy sachse this. You have good friday. Which is quite dan. How and holy saturday people were cleaning up. So that by the time. I arrived back on tuesday morning. There was no evidence of it until i actually got to my home and then i saw. Oh my god. My car to kars or covered in ash ghetto the patios or covered or nash. The windows of the house and so on the driveway the plants and so on. But you know within a matter of hours between myself and the helper that i had he and i had pretty much cleaned up all of it know. We spent the entire day washington washington. No of course thankfully while the house was very traditional house to as well not all of the doors and windows were shuttered tight. It was largely untouched on the inside. Which is where you want to keep the dust that ashram you know because a lot of people in barbados. I'm not sure if you wear this but we have a high incidence of in barbados. I mean it seems to me. I have my own series on my theory. Is that kids to get outside and run in the mud. The muck gunslinger. I think to sanitize than our in our environment. When i was growing up growing up most trinidad here in my school year and barbados. We had one of three hundred boys who had has probably would find that. Seventy five percent of that. School are either as Borderline as matic. There is a serious problem in it. May well be environmental. Could be dust but i honestly believe this because we over sanitized everything you know. We don't want them to get dirt. The sore we don't you don't want to. You know kids the spending too much time on on toys and electronics suffering on. You've gotta get burnt by the sun. Come back grimy and dirty it yet. So people did clean up very quickly seem. This is of all other level completed. And when you return back in nineteen seventy nine and you saw your house all covered the quote was your feeling. What was your reaction emotions related to say..

Be reluctant to simplify things. That are complex because that sloppy thinking and when we model that in our organizations then we're contributing as leaders contributing as managers to the idea that that's okay that's the way the world works again life as we experience it is oftentimes through our organizations and when our organizations are you know in inculcating this this atmosphere of low trust slobby thinking. Then guess what we're why should we be surprised that people are thinking in bad ways outside of work no right. And here's some of the things you guys got to have professional models for decision making you know if how you how you have evolved or think about risk are you using a composite risk management approach. How do you think about thinking. If it's just like you know people present me all this data. But then i just go with what. I'm feeling. There can be an element of guests. But if you don't have some kind of format about how you think about things you need to get some coaches coaching and training here. There's just too much by the seat of the pants. That ben i see when we're out in organizations and there are better ways for you owe it to your people to learn those better ways and model those better ways of thing. That's right you know so.

Modulating a Gatekeeper of Cellular Metabolism to Treat a Range of Diseases

"Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. We're going to talk about navato r- its platform technology and the wide range of diseases that this has the potential to target. Perhaps we can start with and torque one and its role in cellular metabolism. What does it do so amtrak one is fascinating system. And it's something really that people should learn more about the impacts. Every cell their body explains a lot of how our bodies grow disease takes place in also where very important therapeutics may be coming from in the future but Amtrak one plays a really interesting function in the cell in that it serves the purpose of constantly surveying the availability of key components that the cell needs in order to carry out its work and so each celebrate body is constantly serving the local environment to see are there a sufficient supply of amino acids particularly the essential amino acids. The come in our diet is there. Unavailability of glucose or energy or oxygen are the local conditions right in terms of of a concentration of things like salts to all of these things are integrated. Torp one to let the cell do what needs to do when the conditions are right. It also takes input from growth factors. That are the sort of circulating factors in our body like insulin that tell the cell. How much of that to do. And so anytime it cells growing or any time. it's making a product. It needs permission if you owe from One to carry that out and it's a constantly carrying a playing that role and under conditions. Where you're a growing child or an embryo for example and you need to carry out a lot of synthesis. Things like proteins lipids nucleic acids in order to drive your your body to grow amtrak. One needs to be on in order to support that work as we get older. We need less of That ongoing production things and this is where the the control the daily control. I really becomes important and contribute to policy in the setting of some diseases. There's a second mta complex amtrak to what's the relationship between these two complexes. Yeah so so. They share of a couple of things. The main one is that they share an enzyme called tour which is also known as the target of rapamycin. Rapamycin is a small molecule. Rather large small molecule made by An organism that was discovered on easter island many years ago and found that this particular compound could suppress uplift ration- of certain types of cells under certain conditions and it turns out that the tour enzyme or target of rapamycin inside which carries out the process. Uplinked phosphate groups onto other proteins was actually what the rapamycin binding to and And so tour as kind. A certain enzyme is shared. By the two complexes it was much later that it was discovered that there are too complex is actually there may be more that incorporate this enzyme and so Torque one as a complex is determined when another protein called raptor binds to talk to 'em tour and forms a complex that the carries out the functions that i just mentioned amtrak to is is formed when it binds a protein called rector instead of raptor. I'm the case of amtrak. One for richard drives the formation of the complex to and Directs the activity of the tour kindness toward different substrates and talk one carries out that stuff i mentioned earlier about controlling the availability of integrating the availability of nutrients with the production of of things like lipids and proteins. Amtrak to had carries out much more pedestrian type of a role which is to participate in signaling pathways such as the insulin signaling pathway. But it has a very important role in supporting those pathways for example maintenance of site of skeletal functions insulin action self-liberation. And so if you disrupt mta to you'll have effects on those things whereas controlling torque one really gets about this business of of marrying the availability of nutrients in the need for new trance with the production of new materials by the self rapamycin been used for

Why Some Easter Island Statues Are Where They Are

"The statues on Easter Island are among the most mysterious objects made by humans. We still don't know how they were moved why they were placed particular sites around the island and why they were made in the first place. Now, researchers think they have at least some answers because a new analysis fines that the statues are located near sources of freshwater. The study appears in the Journal plus. It's believed that the residents of revenue the indigenous name for Easter Island began constructing these carvings in the thirteenth century the statues called Moai which sit upon stone platforms called who are the very definition of monumental, most way between twenty and thirty tonnes and of the thousand on the island about four hundred have been moved from the quarry where they originated and placed on all who located elsewhere. But those locations aren't necessarily everywhere there in some places and not others. And the questions that we started to ask ourselves was, why do we find these out who and why some places on the landscape but not others Carl, Lipo an anthropologist at Binghamton University in Central, New, York he says that most of these sculptures are found along the coast but some are inland and they're not necessarily in obvious places. For example, we don't find out WHO and statues located on the tops of hills places that we might expect to find them if. These things were symbolic representing ancestors where you wanted to show off to the world or the itself, the fruits of your creation these statue. So the statues are more than just towering talismans to be admired from afar indeed lippo and his colleagues noted that people spent most of their time living in working around these sites which made the researchers thing that the statues might be located near a valuable resource. So the question was what resource was water freshwater marine resources. Or Division places, which of those which combination of those best explained locations of who on the landscape and their statistical analyses pointed toward potable water, which Lippo says made sense every single time we found a big source of freshwater. There would be a statue in and out who emmy facilities over and over and over again in places where we didn't find freshwater, we didn't find statues and I hope now that doesn't mean that the sculpture served as markers like sign saying. Here. But rather that the community themselves were connected to those resources and thus their investment in statues was done around that resource because these locations had the resources that they needed survive. It seems that many of these massive sculptures are where they are for totally pragmatic reasons we'll build here because here is where we wanna be.

"Thompson has been in examining oral histories the records of Captain Cook and the accomplishments of the Polynesian voyaging society. All to investigate what it can tell us about how we view the world. Today she pieces together the navigation puzzle of sailors and settlers in her book. See People Christina. Welcome thanks for having me. So when when we think of Polynesia talk about how big it is and what it has in common culturally so Polynesia is the area that is inside of this triangle we'll formed by Hawaii in the North New Zealand in the southwest and Easter Island in the southeast. It's an area of about ten million square miles and it smack in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it happens that all the people who live on the islands in this area which is the island's that people have heard of like Tahiti or saw more or maybe the mark cases they all share a common cultural heritage. They all speak related languages and they have a similar genetic. Ming up no Christina. You say ten million square miles and originally they were not populated by human beings at all so somehow people had to get there and there was no communication. People didn't right. They didn't have metal tools. They didn't have navigational devices that I can imagine. Can you just kind of paint a picture to the best that we can. We're were there caravans of canoes just going out into the unknown C or how did these islands become populated originally well. I think one thing we don't know is how many canoes necessarily sailed together but basically the idea is that you know some thousands of years ago over in what sometimes people call the island nursery Sirri of Southeast Asia in the islands around the Philippines and Indonesia and stuff people developed an outrigger. which is this thing that sticks out from the side of the canoe to keep it balanced to keep it from from tipping over and with the development of the outrigger people started to be able to make some longer distance? Voyages and the canoes the Polynesian sailed in were like Catamaran's they had to halls else and they were stable and they could carry a load of people and animals and so they started making longer and longer voyages. There's some again some thousands of years ago from this western side of the Pacific out further and further and further into the mid Pacific. But it must have been hit or miss because they didn't have maps. They didn't have radar. They didn't know where the islands were if they were islands. Do you think they were just kind of going toward the sunset and hoping to hit land now the sunrise is actually but they obviously looking for islands and the islands are what they call inter visible. You can see one from. I'm the other in the Western Pacific. A lot of them are. There's a big leap when they get past that point and they start to sail out to islands that you can't see so they're probably exploring hiring and looking for them they really were amazing navigators. They weren't sailing blinds. They understood how to go to one place and sail back from that place after. Remember where that place was and things like that. They must have been exploring but we don't really know how they found islands like the end of Hawaii. Which is the islands of Hawaii are very isolated in the North Pacific? How did they find them who knows because we have no written history people? Just build a raft. That was kind of like one of those early outriggers Imagining how they might have done it and just without knowing if they did it prove that they could have done it like those. Expeditions seemed to be part of science right right so the the earliest one was was to Harles kon-tiki raft which he he allowed to drift basically from the coast of South America and ended up in the middle of the Pacific on the tomatoes. And that was an kind of an early experiment in this vain but then in the nineteen seventies in Hawaii some people got together and decided to try and build a true replica vessel so a copy of what they imagined. An ancient Polynesian voyaging canoe would been like and they decided to try and sale it from Hawaii to Tahiti and back again and that was the beginning of what what is really kind of an experimental voyaging movement in Hawaii. And what was that expedition called. The ship was called Hokule'a it Okla has made an around the world voyage now but that was in two thousand sixteen I guess but between Nineteen Seventy in two thousand sixteen they have made voyages absolutely everywhere. They sailed to to Easter to New Zealand. All around the Pacific to the point is to prove that it could be done yet to show the voyaging capacity of the Polynesians basically to show that non instrumental. Navigation vacation is really a thing and that people can go very long distances using it. You know that it's a real technique. You said they sailed it. Is it drifting with the wind and the tides is it with a sale or is it paddling they have a sale. They have a steering paddle but they sail. What were the very first contact with European society like in the Polynesian World? Some of them were violent. Some of them were not. We don't have any idea what the markes ins thought of men Donya when he arrived Zeppelin we know record of it and what I mean. There's the record of the Spanish but we don't really know for sure what archaisms thought There was a little bit of that I think. In some cases there it was all in some cases there was fear in some cases. There was something that you might call. Greed greed Westerners. No on the part of the I mean I. I think that a lot of islanders actually looked at these ships once they realized kind of what was going on and who these people were they actually wanted the ships. There are definitely stories of ambushes. Did they have some kind of A religious context again in the case of the conquistadors from Spain I mean in their religion I understand. It was on this certain year. A man on a horse you know was going to come and on that certain year the man on the horse with the beard came just like their scripture said and they disfigured this must be divided and they laid down their weapons and was there any kind of dimension of that local cultural religion with the arrival of the first Europeans pins or was it the opposite The story of Cook's arrival in Hawaii is kind of like that story that he arrived during a festival in he seemed to be the embodiment of the deity. Who was being celebrated in the Festival because switches to happen that he arrived at that time? I think that that added to the confusion of cooks experience. AGREEANCE cook was killed in Hawaii. That was where he died. And it was not long after this encounter during this festival period and I think it added to sort of chaos and confusion that he had Iraq during that a period. This is travel with. Rick Steves talking with Christina Thompson. Her book is see people the Puzzle of Polynesia and we're talking about early explorers of the Pacific both before the Europeans arrived and after so captain cook arrived and they thought. Oh It's a festival in here comes God and then things went sour and they killed killed them. Tell us a little more about that. So what happened. Is that Cook. He went up north to Alaska and then or the Northwest Pacific and then he came down and when he came down he was looking for a place to rest his crew and he sort of hit the island of Maui and then he went east so he sailed all the way around the big island before he found a place to come to rest his crew and that meant that he was sailing in his ship all the way slowly because against the wind all the way around the big island for quite a while and so when he arrived the legend of Lono the God that he sort of seemed to be representing was that Leno passed around the island in the same. I'm way he was represented as carrying a staff with White Tapa cloth on it which is sort of like the the ship to mass in their sales so just a lot of things lined up kind of strangely initially and then what happened was he. They went through all this festival these festivals and celebrations and then Cook sailed away and that should have been the end of it he should have just sailed away that would be fine but his mast broke just offshore and he had to return and when he returned he wasn't supposed to return according to the legends. He wasn't supposed to come back until the next year. So people were confused by that and then there was an altercation. He died in the clash not long after he returned.

"Knowledge in a nut shell dot com which is linked up at coast to coast AM dot com here's some off Christmas things I want to ask you some scientists believe that those statues on Easter Island the might have been left there by aliens tell me about that yeah it's one of the most amazing places in the world towards their eight hundred statues there it's called the Easter I went because it was covered on an Easter dates in the South Pacific in on those I would choose is I say eight hundred statues there about thirty to forty feet tall they waste sixty to seventy tonnes and the question is how did people and they've been there for centuries how did those statue who moved those statues from the mountain rocks from which they were carved the route by the sea they're out on the of Easter Island so the question it it's a major what how could agent people move those statues from the mountains out to where they are on the on the island so that that's one big question mark there and the other question mark is what those statues look like the faces don't quite look like humans of some people say they look a bit like aliens and the question is were aliens there did they leave those statues is sort of a calling card that they that they Kerr about the faces in the mountain and move those sixty to seventy ton statues out to the coast nobody really knows and it's it's very hard to imagine agent people being able to move anything that heavy and also why did those faces not look human why were they carved to look at what's a subhuman or non human they're very strange looking faces and are they really faces of aliens who might have been there it's an interesting thing to think about you know just about every question we're going to go through tonight Charles is a separate show off by himself well we we could do that you have talked to Bob turtles that some of them out live humans obviously a hundred and fifty two hundred years old without any doctors vets medicine how do they live so long it amazing nobody knows really and when you stop to think about it George there's a mother in was to Jody Fischer another example but turtles are probably the best example is we know definitely how long some of them live yep you realize they hear the it they don't take any medicine no pills there is they never see a doctor no stress right there's a key nobody tells what the yeah and you you've hit the nail on the head there as we say in the book third the slowest moving animals in the world maybe that's a lesson for us but it is amazing that you know they they cannot leave us with all our medical knowledge at all or medicines and everything has been developed over the years all aren't always the medicine we we can't outlive those very primitive animals birds and fish can travel hundreds of miles and come right back to the spot they started they don't have GPS tracking devices how do they do it salmon for example when they're born he's in a river let's say in Washington state after they're born the swim out to the ocean they swim hundreds of miles out into the ocean and then when it's time for them to mate they turn around and come back and come to the exact same spot from which they were born how in the world did they do that they were like you said there's no GPS in the bottom of the ocean they shot as they do how did and birds the same way you're not far from Capistrano right with the birds come back yes although they fly down to Argentina in the winter and they fly back in Hey you know what it when they fly you could say well they can see but they fly through the air you know what the weather's bad the the the fly at night time there are no roads and they can see how how do they get back to where they came from but that's another does anybody know street no no no is there another multi verse out there well that's the all right I love that question because it would you think about it our galaxy has over a billion stars just our galaxy and there are billions of galaxies and that is it but is this the only universe we have all that with you know which also is the question are we the only **** with the only people in the whole universe with all those billions and billions of billions of stars with this little earth which is one of the smallest the places in the whole wide universe could it be possible that we're the only more like this it all the you know it's it's just you know devised a mathematical possibility with all the billions and billions of of galaxies and then it all those galaxies all the billions and billions of stars and then who is the question well you know maybe that's not even that maybe there's another universe out there just like this one maybe there's a and that some think about tonight when you lay down to go to bed what you're looking for these tidbits in facts do you stumble across scientists or individuals who add credence to the question yeah I I happen to have very good luck I had a friend who is a professor at the university of Pittsburgh from Pittsburgh and when he was younger he got an audience with Albert Einstein and he he was able to spend a whole day just imagine you know what a thrill that would be assassinated yeah he had just graduated college was becoming a teacher and somehow we get the details but he was able to get a sit down with Albert Einstein that's good by the way I'm going to Charles hold on for sucked let's come back and talk more about that I've got some more questions and then we'll take calls next hour on coast to coast AM never miss a detail on a show or a guest sign.

Meet The Credit Card Obsessives Who Travel The World On Points

"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply now we have a story of people who are in credit card points as though it were a game they go for sign up bonuses and point multipliers and balance transfers but it turns out you can lose the credit card points game to here's Dr Yes roffe on it's seven o'clock on Tuesday night and in a crowded Bar in downtown Brooklyn on twenty or so people have gathered to sip Craft Beers Niblett appetizers men talk about credit cards. I've taken out over forty six credit cards writes in five years and earn two point six million Miles Justin sign up bonuses. Janus Lynch is irregular at the reach for the Miles Mita. It's a gathering of travel hackers. There's an deal optimize. IRS will meet once a month to trade strategies for maximising credit card rewards for her. Earning points is a kind of sport. I just came back this morning. From Easter. Island Lhasa Got Twenty Six thousand points from that plus because American Airlines was late for flight big any another seventy five hundred points nights so I'm not sure where I came out but I think I may have been paid to go to Easter Island. Uruguay and Lynch isn't alone nearly ninety percent of all the money spent on credit it cards last year was on rewards cards and as points have become more popular so to have websites like million mile secrets and the points guy which helped consumers game the point system meanwhile card issuers have been pushing more and more generous rewards all in an effort to entice customers to borrow and spend more but for people like Janus Lintz. It's just one more way to beat the credit card companies at their own game so I even make money paying taxes. I made quite a few thous in capital gains taxes. I spoke with one person who opened a credit card and immediately bought three thousand dollars worth of Amazon Gift Cards. Just has to qualify for the sign up bonus another person filled up there garage with blenders to take advantage of a promotion offering extra points on appliances one dad he even even try to enroll his newborn in a frequent flyer program only to be told that you have to be at least two years old to start earning miles and of course the ultimate badge of honor among this crowd is the outlandish travel story like the guy who flew first class to Dubai for less than twenty dollars and then there's Stephen Kozelsk Hausky. He used his points to visit every single country on earth before he turned forty the last one on his list Syria on one day notice I was was able to be on a plane to Beirut in Damascus by nightfall points can open the door to extraordinary experiences if you have the time and the discipline but one survey found that nearly sixty percent of the people who have rewards cards don't pay off their balances each month. They're so focused on the rewards aspect of it that got a lot of time. I think they just look past the potential downside. Ron Struggle is a certified financial planner. He sees clients. Come in all the time excited about all the points they're going to get with their new credit credit card. Believe him pull that card out and they should to me. You know like they're bragging about it but many of those same clients wound up racking up charges incentivized by that little little hit of dopamine they get each time they earn a point. That's what happened to jd Malone. He and his wife got sucked into a rewards program a few years ago after opening a Costco cashback card it changed the way we spent money from shopping for a brand new college and I mean one of the things that we talked about that was all hey if we buy this two thousand dollars couch yeah. That's that's Nice but if we buy this three thousand dollar couch we're going to get more cash back for that so we might as well by the three thousand thousand couch when they got their year end statement they found that they charge more than forty thousand dollars on that card and for all that they got about six hundred cashback it was painful. I mean to be honest. It was it was sickening. We were like this. This has to change. Jd and his wife enrolled in

Guess we'll just have to try it for yourself. Starbucks nature cold brew. It's called coffee that subtly sweet lush and velvety smooth only at starbucks welcome to brainstorm a production indivi- heart radio. Hey brain stuff lauren vogel balm hair someone gazing out at the ocean from the maine coast seized very different hues is them someone's squinting at the c. from sunny beach on a greek island but why does the ocean come in so many shades of blue of course ocean water is an inherently blue blue. It's clear that we see on the surface are the result of light being absorbed and reflected by the water itself. Whatever is floating and living in it and the surface of the ocean floor below low it a glass of water will of course appear clear as visible light passes through it with little to no obstruction but if a body of water is deep enough that light isn't reflected off the bottom it appears blue a basic physics explains why light from the sun is made up of spectrum of different wavelengths the longer wavelengths links appear to our eyes as the reds oranges while the shorter ones appear blue and green when the sun's light strikes the ocean it interacts with water molecules and can be either absorbed or scattered. If nothing is in the water except water the longer read portions of the spectrum tend to be absorbed by the water molecules whereas the light of those shorter wavelengths is more likely to go deep hit water molecules there and scatter back up towards her is making the ocean appear blue depth depth and the ocean bottom also influence whether surface appears a dusky dark blue as in parts of the atlantic or casts as safir like shimmer as in many tropical locations. We spoke nasa astronaut gene carl feldman. He said in greece the water is this beautiful turquoise color because the bottom is either white sand or white rocks fox. What happens is the light comes down and blue light gets down hits the bottom and reflects back up so you make this beautiful light blue color in the water darker sand rocks or other formations mean darker water. The color is further complicated by the fact that the ocean is rarely just water but is instead instead teeming with tiny plant and animal life plus suspended sediment or other natural orban made contaminants oshii offers monitor the oceans color the way that doctors read vital signs of their patients color seen on the ocean surface reflect. What's going on in its vast.

It's when oceans become polluted runoff. The amount of phytoplankton can escalate late to unhealthy levels fellow painted feet on the pollutants flourish and them die sinking to the bottom to decompose process. The depletes oxygen from the water over the past fifty years oceans zones with depleted oxygen have more than quadrupled to an area roughly. The size of the european union part of the cause may be an increase increase in ocean temperature due to climate change since warmer water supports less oxygen in coastal areas phytoplankton blooms are suspected to be the cause title plankton may serve as the base of ocean food chain but as feldman says too much of a good thing is not a good thing on a map on feldman's office. Wall is a marker showing knowing where there's little human. Interference and ocean water is perhaps the clearest on the planet in this region off the coast of easter island in the southeast pacific ocean. The water is deep and remarkably clear due to its location in the middle of giant oceanic. I which is a large circular current. Its central location means. There's minimal mixing of ocean layers nutrients aren't pushed up from the deep bottom the purity of the water there coupled with that make the ocean appear a deeper indigo than perhaps anywhere else.

"She was like watching the kind of showing her stuff here. They're like this is, you know, it's explained to her those, and she seen some of them in, she's a big animal fans. Those cool and pulled out a bag of micro men figures I got a good bit of micro, man. I'm not gonna act like I have a million or whatever I don't have a good bit of though. And I have pulled out a bag of them had a bag with some mcroy IRS from there is a and I guess, two thousand four series of just a Kreuzer figures and had some of those ziplock, bag, you, sadly, one of them's foot had broken which those early two thousand two thousand four. Thousand three two thousand four that era series lot of those had breaking parts broke really easily, and sadly, one of them's foot broke while you're sitting in a bag inside of a box instead of me playing weirdly enough. L fix it. I'll get another foot or something later on. But it's kinda Schoener those explain to her how they're he's robot bad guys. The micro man and stuff like that. Explained to her house like the precursor transfers and Bumblebee, which she thinks he's really cute. How he was originally micro mentally stuff like that. And like this is why some transformers like sound wave or like thousands of sound ways I have she knows it really like she thinks the cassettes are cool to ravage laser based school has got cassettes that turned the animal friends like how that came from micro, man, how they were supposed to be little tiny people from another planet in the toys, R scale they weren't. He's household things were partner robots and stuff like that. And that, that made a lot of sense, like, okay, that's cool. That's the shoulder those things pull that so my older ones, I got some got some micro nuts as well which Mike, of course being the American version of Mike Roman and had a bunch of those kind of showing her those, and her dad's Rulli and Egypt and stuff, and showed her fair Royd deals like. Insuring arousing. She's like, wow. My dad would really like those like dad probably has one of these know. I couple years ago, gave her dad a bunch of my stuff debts who has a toy. He he's into toys to he does a lot of selling as well. And I was clear now I gave them a bunch of boxes of, old of early two thousand series stuff. I just wanted to get rid of. And in that box I gave him a burn Karzai had as the Palisades, Barron cars, all, which I kind of wish I would have held onto it. But at the same point he's like fifty percent in Agnes, and it always made me super nurse around in he electron EQ, you know, so I ended up giving it to him and I was like, I know your dad had a baren cars off for however long. It took him to sell it for sure. He's got a fair Royd somewhere, but I I love to coffee is Dade have, you know, like, there's like Easter Island head style ones for some reason to Kara in other robot lines really, like Easter Island for Diack loan, when they're designing Toyota, ended up becoming Metroplex, you know, at one point he was going to be strong like have the Easter Island heads on them and stuff like that. Like some reason they really like Easter Island, and I love them for that it goes together really well with that era robot toy just the Egyptian stuff and the.

The good and bad of rapamycin

"Current obsession of the anti-ageing industry is rapamycin in the sixties group of Canadian researchers from Gil university set sail for Easter Island, especially inhabited speck of land two thousand miles off the coast of Chile the team collected hundreds of plant samples thousands of animal specimens and blood and saliva from the nine hundred forty nine residents of the island, but what they found buried in the dirt of Easter Island turned out to be the biggest fine of all us soil based bacteria that mystified scientists for the next fifty years, but is now known to create a special chemical known as rapamycin named after Easter island's native name Rapa Nui a growing body of research now shows that rapamycin can actually extend not just the average lifespan of mice as many drugs have already been shown to do. But also the maximum life span by up to thirty percent. But as with metformin, there's a dark side. To rapamycin part of the way it works by inhibiting excess activation of immune cells via pathway called 'em tour and up regulation of cellular cleanup mechanisms called a tough Aji. Now in addition of the tour pathway activated autocracy can indeed slow ageing and control issues like neurological diseases and genetic disorders, but as an immune system suppressor rapamycin his also able to increase risk of infectious diseases, diabetes and produce side effects, like impaired, wound healing, long talk city, an increased risk of cancer. But in the same way that there are natural compounds that can be used as alternative cement Forman. They're also natural compounds mimic rapamycin is able to do for health and longevity. One example is spurting sperm has been shown to induce similar benefits as rapamycin with no known side effects and also promotes longevity in yeast worms and mice wall sperm. Yes.
