One more thing event preview, Apple Silicon Macs, and AT&Ts 5G Ultra Wideband
"Hello and welcome to the apple insider. Podcast joe stephen rowe bliss and joining me this week from across the pond is my friend. William gallagher how's it going williams luxton weaving asking how it's going twenty twenty. It's kind of a fraud question. I think that's true for anyone. But yes i saw that. The uk and other countries have been shutting down so we will discuss that for sure towards the end of the show but we do have some news and obviously there's a huge event next week so it's such on that and you actually have a new phone in hand so i'd love to hear your thoughts on this at literally in hand. I'm holding it. Narain frank i'm stroking. Yeah that's why you're doing a my precious lord of the rings thing. I get it. Yeah so first of all next week. On tuesday november tenth apple announced that they're holding their third event. This fall titled it there one more thing event which you know apple famously. Does that every once in awhile. They save it for for the big ones for the dan dot products but they call it the one more thing events and i don't know if you saw this william but there's an augmented reality invite. They've been doing this with all their events. Now and the the previous reality invites haven't really given away anything. But i think this one if you do it. It's actually an apple logo and you kind of see it going from a laying down position to open and then closed again. I think it's pretty sure. That's to allude to the apple. Silicon macs books or new laptops. Maybe they'll change his name Are going to be announced next week. There's some rumors that we will see multiple models that we might see a thirteen and the sixteen inch. Maybe an air and appro. I imagine we'll see at least two different models. I can't imagine that they would only have one mac book and be a big event but actually before we even talk about or pontificate about the kinds of macbooks. They might announce it seems like every event this fall we've gotten the two product announcement so in the first event in september we had the apple watch and ipad. Air during the iphone high-speed event. We got all the new iphone. Twelve and the homepod. And so i would assume and it looks like we'll have the apple silicon macs being the headliner for this event next week. But i'd pretty she'll be one more thing pun intended. What do you think. I'm thinking airtags airpods studio. Which do you think has a better chance to move things. Apple's pez so he's up three more. No i i think it will only be one or the other but Yeah what do you think there was some Probably the studio so manufacturing but they were delayed the means to me if i had to bet aspects would seem more likely but i think if we have to and i agree. It's more likely. I feel like surely they do desktop and laptop Somehow fails more dramatically correct but one laptop in an attack. Well depending on the money could not sure if so. Yeah you say airtags. I'll do a different prediction so this way we could see who's right next time we're on the show but i'm saying apple tv first announcement apple silicon macs as the larger second announcement. Because and the reason why. I'm saying that is obviously the new apple silicon chip which they might call it a fourteen with some letter maybe fourteen m or maybe won't even follow the line. Maybe it'll be a different numbering system altogether and they'll call it the m one or something you know. I think that chips is going to be the story at this new event and so a new apple. Tv that both a new chip. That might even be better for gaming more powerful for some of that more powerful games coming apple. Tv so i say apple tv and macbook and then we will see in this gentleman's wager gentleman's wager cheat you offer me a choice. John i did. I see the apple tv. Well i forgot. I thought of it as you were talking. So yeah okay. So no wage. We'll see we'll see what happens. But i would be excited about any of those For sure curious about a new apple. Tv and airtags but when it comes to the apple silicon mac. There's been lots of questions you know. The way apple has always sold their max. You know whether. You're buying a mac book or an i mac or whatever mac you know. There's always lots of customization options. You can choose a processor speed with intel chips. You know it'd be i three. I five seven or even nine. You have multiple ram choices. You have graphic card choices depending on what model you're getting you're getting a and macbook pro. I mac so. I think what i'm most curious about. And we don't have much information on this but i'm curious what customization options apple is going to give with these apple silicon macs. I feel like having multiple chip choices is kind of against what apple normally does especially if you look at like ipad pros iphones and all that even ram you know. Apple is usually very cagey about ram inside phones. We know the iphone. Twelve pro line has six gigs of ram. The regular twelve has four but apple never says any of that. So if we have any customisations. I'm curious and especially with the gp. Well if it's built into the chip we have other options. Or if it's just you get the macbook air and that's that model and maybe you get a storage option like you do with ipad and that's it and maybe get a macbook pro and it's the more powerful one and you get storage options and that's all you get. We're gonna go into the same situation with the iphone twelve range where all the processes of the same much of the design is the same the differences a really quite subtle. I i'd be good in some ways but very confusing another's for people that don't care to make a bunch of choices you know most consumers. You know you'd think about student getting a laptop going to college or university you know parents would probably enjoy not having to make a ton of decisions on that they say. Just gimme the macbook air and give me the five hundred gig version and we'll be done with it and they just know it's going to work again. It's going to be fast and they don't have to worry. What is the difference between. I five and i seven so i think maybe some lines like the if they bring back the mac book just kind of the low in macbook and the macbook air. Maybe one choice there. And then but the macbook pro. Maybe you get a couple of different models. Maybe you get like medium fast fast and really fast. I know the market those differences peterson. She worries on the way in. Because i spent a long time wondering whether i made a mistake came for the iphone. Twelve pro twelve does a lot of what i want and the sort of get you. That again didn't appeal. But yet the the just works by this. It does it sign and all the intel. I caught your nine for foster. And i found that but we'll drink confusing to be free of that. We just eighth fourteen a bit right. Sounds good to me right. Yeah exactly and then you know if you're a pro and you want to really know how much ram you're getting. What the gpu core and speed is you got the mac pro and maybe an i mac pro or similar model. I'm mac where you get some of those options anyway. Curious what they do and how they frame it so. That event is one pm eastern ten. Am pacific for you in the uk. What that six pm yes sixteen. I got her out thought my thirties yet. But look you're saying yes. I get very very confused. Change talks back a week before you did and for that week i was just my head over the place. I'm going go. yeah yes. I didn't realize you guys change your clocks at a different time than we. Don't be awkward interesting well. The event is tuesday november tenth one pm eastern pacific six pm uk time and just one final question on this form of on. Does any of these tempt you. Do you think in the near future. You might be an early adopter to these apple silicon macs or are you going to do. A wait and see approach would have appealed. I'm on the twenty eighteen. Mac mini and it straining lots. I want to move tuneup. Silicon and she before lockdowns plural. I a lot of traveling. And i was thinking i really should mex- machine should be a mac book microprobe and when i thought that things coming clearly wait for that but now i didn't expect to spend any money buying an iphone. Twelve hundred six year act. So i'm down on edge round the table so much every minute. I'm going to be technologically responsible. Time in wait for the next generation the sort of february time woods. And pretend it's ruled the best reasons we're not going to baltimore. I like that phrase for technologically responsible. What about you are you pleased. I have been holding out for the new ipad pros. And i still wanna hold out for that but my thinking is i. I actually have a sixteen inch. Mac pro and i bought it with some use cases in mind that i used it for and now it's a little bit overkill and i always loved the thirteen inch macbook pro size for portability. But i'll still ipad pro so honestly i'm not sure i really wanna see the comparisons and speed you know if they put up on the screen that they're apple. Silicon mac is two times faster than the fastest intel. I nine that. I have in my sixteen inch macbook pro. I might look to offload that pro and just go with an apple silicon. Mac i mean i would love to kind of get in rat as they're being announced and launched edge love this idea of the apple silicon macs. And you know the kind of speed you might get from apple really controlling the whole stack. So we'll see. I would probably sell my sixteen. I and i'm curious. Those those speed comparisons go do especially the final cut performance. Because as we'll talk about on a second. I'm basically a youtuber now. Very very famous youtuber right here in a second. So we'll see found. Performance is important to me and given that that's apple software and if apple silicon really works well with final cut and you get really fast rendering times and you know our. We'll see what they announced. But but i'm very tempted for sure can tell you before. It was announced absolutely. Can i got close enough to buying. Am i prepare that. I went through all the figures for the thirteen sixteen specifically the my usa. Final cut pro and What i needed for on wear. I needed it for and i was coming down to. I was reluctantly close to getting the sixteen inch for the power. They gave with the separate. Gpu but i don't like to me. Seems like a sailboat sized. Here's much preventative. Thirteen inch but then. I was also hoping that that would magically become a fourteen right. It was rumored before so. Yeah i'm i'm ready with all the specs in my head from the last set I'll be comparing as well right. And maybe we'll see that fourteen inch finally come. Yeah that was the fifteen sixteen. Thirteen point three heard mike go to fourteen. Maybe now's the time. Maybe they'll have like a twelve inch a fourteen and a sixteen. You know who knows. But i remember my first apple. Laptop was the g. Four powerbook twelve inch and i love that thing august. Yes yeah that's very nice one. This episode is brought to you by mint.

So as you listen to this episode preorders are live for the iphone. Twelve mini the iphone. Twelve pro max and the homepod mini and also apple's leather cases for iphone. Twelve and twelve pro. I've seen that. That is rumored to be going for sale. Now as well. And william. And i both have an iphone. Twelve pro in hand which. I am eager to hear what william has to say about the twelve pro but listeners. Let us know. Did you go with a mini. Did you go with a pro max. How're priore this time. I will be pre ordering a homepod mini to check that out. And maybe apple cases well. But i decided to go the regular pro- and not the mac so i won't be priori phone this time. So william are you going to be pre ordering anything today as has our listeners. Here this episode. She probably not. I'm not questioning environment. minneap- i'm actually looking to christmas present for my wife. She's listening to this on july. Look behind you reveal. I'm certain that i'm going to do that. But since he's going to be for. Christmas doesn't particularly benefit in pre ordering for. Its unless unless you had the iphone twelve and stuff have been selling it. Weighty quickly right i mean even mag safe accessories you know if you wanted to get a mag safe wallet right now. I looked because i saw bud people tweeting about it. And i was like well. Maybe i want one of those. If not arriving until late november. So i you might wanna think about pre ordering it as we speak. I will achieve. Just technically changed. Talk faster so i can get to the yeah i just. I really think it's going to be a very popular item. And so you know. I don't know if you remember when airpods were first announced this those were hard to get Because those went for sale. I think in november or early december. And you know if you wanted it before christmas you had to preorder it immediately and if you waited you couldn't get it for eight to twelve weeks so you know sometimes some of these products that hit a certain price point. I think it really in between like that. Hundred hundred and dollar price point better christmasy type items hanukkah type gift items. You definitely They go fast. So you might wanna hit one of those up this session. I think thank you. Yes very glad could up now. You william now have your iphone. Twelve pro after a heartbreaking delays. It is now in your hand. You're holding it. Tell us a what color you got. What you think of it. And then yeah. Your overall impression is pacific blue. Which is lovely. I'm not sure say july disheartening. Because it was a hiccup during the ordering process. That saw the delivery slipped from october. Twenty third to november the ninth. But then it arrives russia. Week So good on apple under promise over deliver thought may be very very happy when arrived. Except i'm going to admit i did. Actually i went through about a day of bones remorse because the difference in the province. Twelve is so fine. You're now youtube star. I have a youtube channel fifty eight case this right. This will never be shown. I shot an episode about this three different times. Because i kept changing my mind and as an incredibly complicated because it and being an intervention with myself arguing with myself on behalf of each phone i mean really complicated and after shouted on edited together. Something had happened. And it's i now completely love and adore twelve pro. I'm so glad. I cut it. And and the the tipping point. I mean if the many many things that i love about the tipping point was that she last night i used to delight. Ask her out. not code. Act canvas to a quick none of our living room and it is absolutely beautiful. I have no idea mental ever use it but playing with its is incredible so i run very replaced with its yes so yea oh you similarly happy or if you've got five g disappointment where we'll talk about the five gene second. 'cause they have a an adventure there but i i really love the the twelve pro I'm curious though. So keep seeing the blue. I have a little bit of buyer's remorse i went wight because i've gone black for so long and i wanted a different color and i wasn't sure about the blue but the blue looks really nice. Do you like the color you got you graduate with that. I do but as i sit hairs we record this quite a donka citing here new cabinet post because of the latin jazz different type of dog in this light. It doesn't actually look. Larry looks more space gray as thing but in regular daylight. I think it's goods that i guess again. Hate the idea putting it in the case. So i i'm gingerly carrying it around and admiring. Yeah that's coming from the eleven pro. Because you didn't have the max right you just have the regular eleven pro and still do actually on keeping them by ride right four reasons so coming from the eleven pro. I'm curious your thoughts on a but but this twelve pro definitely feels heavier and larger. You know obviously it is a physically larger screen and the dimensions are slightly different more taller than wide. But for some reason it just feels significantly chunkier and hand and so i. i haven't apple silicon case. But i keep going back and forth because the case adds even more bulk and without a case it does feel very nice and looks great fingerprints on the side edges aside but Nerve racking a little bit without a case. Oh so you're going no case. Did you get silicon case or anything. Just in case. I never do this evidence. I seem to be any person is no marks. While i thought an asshole really not the faintest little all of the scratch. I what the rest of you were doing a couple of years ago. I did that. She drop an iphone ten s maxim smash it to pieces so. I'm not blase about this. But i'm doing all right so far. Okay like micro abrasions on the screen. Just hair line not andrea murray your partner in crime on the kits inside the puck sent me photograph screen and i said to my photograph of mine right back. What is that man doing to his. Wow okay so you don't drop your phone. And i guess you never accidentally graze a metal object near it keys or otherwise. I have occasionally slammed my apple. Watch into a dual by mistake. That's the front thing but with the phone. Haven't she dropped a few times or only once into a toilet. That's complicated pre all defensively My previous very very scary. Yes less yup. I must have show pocket that i slip it into or jacket pocket and anderson. She's saying that he keeps his. I think it must be front jeans pocket the whereas you pulls it out was making the marks. Recently i ended for some reason amended with lot of shirts. That don't have a show talking putting my back pocket and the monkey told me this. I've stopped us doing that right. I knew shirts that's right. Well it's good to hear. Do you have any regrets or do you think you'll experience any regret when the pro max comes out and if they say that. This camera is like life changing. Do you think you'll have any kind of regret. Then i've wondered because the reason few miles iphone. Eleven pro is so that. I have two cameras shooting youtube on the keating beth these that i didn't have the iphone tennis. Max is the front facing camera. He's very good on both. And since i film myself alone usually being able to shoot with the front cameras i could do the framing quicko dual. This stuff i can do. Multiple shots are very quickly the setup so dot made me keep this one of the twelve pro originally and then hearing about the greatest of the camera on the paramedics and i wondered be. It's not that much more than the iphone. Twelve pro for what you get. So we've now but i remember saying to you before i liked my iphone ten s max but i loved my eleven pro and i do notice. The slight biggest random surprised visibly a bigger seemed yet. Side-by-side immediately sold the difference So it's big but it's still within my goupil ranger. And the max i just think is too much for me really in every way but i'm i'm not tempted by it than i am. I was very tempted by. But after holding the twelve pro. Now i really don't want anything larger. You know. I think and looking at my camera roll. It's mostly screenshots. And and raynham pictures. I think even slightly better cameras not going to make it look much better. You know. I take pictures of my kids sometimes. Obviously but most of the time. It's very bright outside or you know. I'm doing portrait mode and trying to. I don't know if it's to make that big of a difference for those action shots kids. Don't stay extremely still anyway when you take you take pictures of them so anyway I think i'm good. We'll see i know. West is getting the pro. Max and so he takes pictures and they look like dsl our quality. We'll see what does episode is brought to you by masterclass with masterclass.

So with the twelve you. Now have a five g phones and i have a five g iphone. And we've talked last time you were on the show about the state of five g in the uk. And so i'd like to hear your experience that you have the phone and for those. If you're tired of hearing five g promises the last time to do a segment on it but the reason why i just have to touch it one more time is because i have finally found millimeter. Wave near me here. In central florida. I went on a lord of the rings era quest to try and find five g plus somewhere in florida and so the verizon ultra wideband is what apple touted on stage. And it's what all the reviewers were using. But i've at and t. And i'm sure many of our listeners. At and t. and so. I was very keen to see does. At and t. Actually have a millimeter wave. Five g somewhere around now on eighteen tease website as i've said before they advertise five g plus as millimeter wave. And it's in quote unquote select innovation zones in quote select cities end quote unquote. Everything's in quotes. You cannot count the amount of asterix in quotes about this. And so i went to dance. Orlando again looking for antennas. Going to their cell towers doing a ton of research on all that seeing where the orlando sentinel announced. That five was installed tried contacting. At and t. Anyway finally to people helped me out. There's a jamie williams. He actually contacted me on twitter he works for. At and t. the business side. He was able to find the exact intersection in orlando where it was and also someone named tiffany from. At and t. Corporate finally got it for me but it is exactly one street corner in exactly one place in orlando. And that's it and then there's like a few street corner of miami and one in jacksonville and that's it for florida so if you were on that list of. At and t. Five plus cities just know. It is probably exactly want street corner. There's not really other places like it is not widespread at all. I think it's in one or two stadiums. It's in one stadium in jacksonville but even not a lot of stadiums. not as much as verizon. Now i have seen some people on youtube. Also find it. In some walmart's there's some walmart's installing millimeter wave. Ten is inside so you can get super fast five g while you're shopping around walmart apparently. So that's you listener if you've seen a walmart with five g plus on. At and t. I'd love to see pictures and see what you got there but found the intersection. I went there. And then i just had to do a video of it because i was so happy to have finally found more door to finally get there and and throw the ring in and get five g plus. Oh there's a video on the apple cider youtube go check it out. I put a lincoln shown us to that video. And an article that amber road up talking about all the five g plus and so i found it. I got up to sixteen hundred megabits down which is great apple touted up to four gigabits in ideal conditions. I've seen some of the verizon ultra wideband. Get up to two almost three thousand but. At and t. Five plus. I was got up about sixteen hundred but in real world use cases. I tried downloading movies. I tried downloading from dropbox. Some large files. I even tried hot spotting and after say in a lot of those practical use cases i don't know of. At and t. is throttling some of those sources of data. I don't know if i did too many speed tests. So it started throttling my phone specifically but i did not really get good speeds doing anything practically. I was able to get speed test. The app give me that high number but when i tried to practically download a movie through disney plus netflix even apple movies. It just would not very fast. And so as far as practicality of the at and t. millimeter wave. i've not found it to be very useful and it was exactly one street corner. Outside of universal studios orlando so that was my experience. I found you know why you didn't get practical. Use out of it wasn't that he said this week will tiffany in jamie ryan Wherever it was giggling as i held the buttons down to delight. No no no. I can't believe it. I can't believe that that was my experience at go. Check out the video. You could see me on the video right outside. Universal orlando you see me doing the speed tests hot spotting and trying to download stuff so it does exist. At's five g plus millimeter wave. Service is a real thing. It is just extremely limited and in very few places. So william. i know you're saying that millimeter wave isn't even an option there in the uk. But now that you have your twelve with five g and all that a have you experienced anything related to five g. to say down to you i'm gonna have to get out of the house. It's nine five g ride. I i did look up. She before we knew the lockdowns coming. I had a couple of days for it was in place. I i look to see where five g was on this plenty enough of it around birmingham in the uk. Where am but nothing cousin that she conveniently nip at check. While we could still convenient nip to do anything i was particularly. I watch seven year. I was really interested for their part. About the practicality of exemplary talks about these spades but then to actually. I loved fast music. Download it for your whole. That was scary. Yeah yeah yeah. That was cool. But i was really expecting you know and i checked every setting just before about a tweet set me. Netflix has settings where you know you allow. Maximum data and you allow high-speed download like us. All the data did all those settings. My in the settings app i made sure was five g on. Not just five g auto. I told it to us as much as possible to eat up my entire data allotment for the month. And even with all those settings in the right place that just did not give me very fast speeds even just downloading a five gigabyte file from dropbox. I had a movie rip. Like star wars the force awakens it was five gigabytes and it took two minutes to download and it seemed or even longer. And that's about the same that i experienced lt speed so i'm not quite sure if there's something with throttling from certain services like dropbox or netflix you know. At&t's limiting that and you know of all the asterix about five g plus there's also many aspects about throttling on at and t. If the network is busy if there's too many users in the area if the wind is blowing from east to west they'll slow down your connection. So i don't know maybe i did too many speed tests. I so they started locking down that tower. I'm not sure but that was my experience. you know. Check out the video and let me know if you see a. At five plus or verizon ultra wideband and you actually get some cool use cases out of it. You can download a big file very quickly. i'd love to see it. you know. Take quick video and tweeted at me at stephen roy bliss and let me know actually do you remember a year. Eighteen months ago everybody was apple is doomed athletes dead in the water because it has a one to five g until the end of twenty. Twenty what we're all the android uses using their five g full. Where were they using this stuff. I don't know and now i've you know in some places. I do get slightly faster download. So when i was i going out to orlando to test five g i literally went directly under the. At and t. cell tower. I was getting x. Men abilities as i was standing there. And there i got like a hundred and twenty down and it was on regular five jeannot not five g. Plus and so that seemed legitimately faster than not speeds. I would get normally just around town. So that seemed better but again not hugely. So you break into cell towers. Are you stoke outside universal studios. This video of yours is probably the last video as well as i wasn't a tgi friday's parking lot for the for the filming of that video. So i don't know i was surprised. No one stopped me but anyway out the video. Let me know what you think listeners. I've found five you. Plus it exists now as we ran out the show cove nineteen amongst the election here in the united states. So much craziness going on. But we'll stick to what actually affects apple stuff. And you specifically william. Uk is now under a secondary lockdown. And that seems to have also included the apple stores over there in the uk. So we'll tell us kind of what the status is right now. Right now as we record this All england applesauce closed our wells and scotland's arrive. Does anyone in northern ireland dates closed anyway as of the topic listening to this. At least most england applesauce say they will have a cooking collect system are he voted something online. You should still be able to pick it up and they will also accept returns. I dunno what the second hand off but that will be available for it other than that. Everything shocked from episodes from it was Fifth in the number two the second of december we believe will be the second december lifted. Were nurses wrong word. We're told spoke ideo k. And ds quite similar in the economy oblivion when you see it's when you've been told something officially we're dealing with it with staying locked-in but we're be surprised if it extends on into christmas. Unfortunately there was some confusion couple of days ago three on episode play reached out to trump inside at said that they had been told to keep the stores open and for awhile. It looked like they might because in france which is also a van apple. Sos did this away. That they can can can't essential stores near enough to sire and it looked like he was going to happen. Here are chose surprised from the lockdown started not blanket everything closed and then later on a few hours later restarted. Getting this could collect possibility. Doing the really amazing. You just never occurred to make the. Uk's version of the iphone upgrade program. It's effectively dead until this is good for some reason. It's works on a very different financial crisis here in the uk in the states. so in the k. is good Yeah ching hold. You cannot just england. You cannot join the iphone upgrade program unless you go into an apple store and haven't credit check conducted in person conduit to join in the first place and what we learned today asking people it. You can't do that even when it comes to the renewal time. There's still some financial requirement fee to go in and said she conquer in e- congress partner So all those people in the uk who were holding off upgrading on the program. Wasting for the iphone tennis max. Will they could still buy it. They can still get a loan systems very similar to the upgrade program for the connaught. She get it through the upgrade Yet i presumably the same thing happened During a first. Look down as much. But i mean. He buys a new iphone in march when they're on the upgrade program. It's right not simple now. There's obviously not going to be any kind of store pickup option for the pro max or twelve many coming but i imagine could still pre-order. It could be. I mean there. Is clicking collect thing for online. Ordering i was going through will the The uk sides of what was available when and really nothing's available but once they are superior processes over the weeks of able. I think it's at least. I'm certain you will be able to order an iphone tennis. Max i go to the store like run past them and scoop it up like a battle kind of thing what you cannot do i is is it via. The partner has to people whether this outright sale all through the night. This is a confusing pot in fat people. Asking me about this in the uk apple still has a deal with barclays financing and barclays financing will do loans fully which can be checked out online to. You don't have to get through this door for those. You can order it and have you found since to you. The barclays is behind the uk upgrade program. And there you cannot an who knows what minuscule. Financial loopholes somewhere requires them to go the strange rate. But it's been that way for years so it's not gonna change well well very strange listen just for. Us listeners. And around the world stay safe breathe deeply. You know maybe. Turn off the news for a bit. I did you know now that we have the apple. One services bundle. I did sign up for and we have news. Plus i kept looking at the news app and i've decided i'd need to not look at that for a while especially here in the. Us is we. We're literally in the middle of Kind of a chaotic election. So i had a nightmare about your election and in the nightmare. I decided that i was can't delete up on years of my workup is one of those where it's so real. You believe it for a second look at my phone pethick. Why is new still on there. I just deleted. Yeah it's wild so anyway listeners. Stay safe out there being courage you know do something you can open a window and look out and breathe deeply enough. Do that as well let us know love to interact with you on social media especially during this time if you if you can't go anywhere but if you're pre ordering stuff hey we love to talk and you can tweet at william awry. Our twitter handles are in the show notes. You can find it there. Let us know if you preordered something. Or if you're you're enjoying your twelve or twelve pro. I love to hear about that as well. Have you having yet. We appreciate a five star rating and review and apple podcasts as well. There's a few that do that every week and we greatly appreciate it. Thank you for doing it. Don't forget to check out. Homekit insider that goes out every monday. And you can hear. Andrew heron myself talk about homekit products. We have the youtube channel. Youtube dot com slash appleinsider. We could see me. Finally finding five g plus and running those tests on my iphone. Twelve pro and as always. Thanks for tuning in. We'll catch next time.
Fish of the eastern Pacific
"I stopped though L. A. The museum went up to Balut and friends are searching the vastness of the Pacific. So we have good historic collections here at the Museum of fishes from those regions and I would like to get some modern complimentary samples joined some of these historic samples that we have in the cloud. How do you manage to do it in such a gigantic area such a gigantic area you had to work with a lot of people people in Chile museums there and universities they go out into the ocean and do samples. Go Up with aircraft or make photographs or what. So there's fantastic theologist luckily in all of these countries throughout this area and yeah. So people are collecting fishes or observing what fishes are in coastal areas throughout and we try to work and collaborate with these individuals. How long will that take you think I think it's GonNa? Take a while to build up. This network of collaborators. So several years at a minimum, the risk of your career, there's definitely enough questions to ask the rest of my career. Why is it important to know this about fish populations because I've been told depending on which species you're talking about there people say in the University of British Columbia who say ninety percent officials of Gum and There are others we heard University of California Los Angeles who say in fact many of fish populations are quite healthy. Indeed there's a large diversity of fishes out there and it's important to document these discover which species live where so we can understand how this changes over time we live on a very dynamic planet that has natural fluctuations as well as our. Own anthropogenic fluctuations in climate and other environmental conditions. So it's really important for us to go out and sample document what fishes are where you mentioned climate. How much in the past have populations in the ocean varied as a result of climate change well recently, and I mean recently on geologic scale. So millions of years, but within the last two and a half. Million years or so in the Pleistocene, there been dramatic glacial fluctuations that our planet's gone through, and this has definitely influenced where species occur on the planet and how they dispersed to different areas to s thousands of years, and how do you signs of that? Do you get fossil examples deep down? So you can look at changing species distributions by looking at. Fossils yes. But one area that I specialize in is molecular systematics. So figuring out how fish are related to one another and their signatures in the genome of these fishes that we can look at that show that they're closely related in Split, by the Tropics, and we can actually look at the amount of change and with an understanding of how often these changes. Occur in the genome and figure out kind of how much time has elapsed between these populations being connected. So the bar code can give you a time line. The Barcode is just one small region. Yes. It can give you a time line. Nowadays, we try to use many more regions of the genome than just one because there is some variation along the. Genome which fish particularly have you been tracking? So I've focused on some species of surgeon fish in the Genus Prion irs, which are sought called Saute fishes but I've also studied an Australian group called the more Wong's as well. What do they look like they have very steep forehead they are very strange looking fish is an anchorage listeners to look them up. I mean many listeners would know them and what made you choose that one because they're somewhat strange group of fishes mainly because the distribution that they have this anti tropical distribution will they now? There is a species in Hawaii. There are three species in Japan but most of the diversity of this group is in the Southern Hemisphere Australia New Zealand, but also certain species along South America.

The History of Hurricanes
"Over the past several decades the way we consume weather information and receive. Our latest forecast have been revolutionized. Millions of people can tune in to watch the tornado. Outbreak were approaching hurricane information so readily at our fingertips and is it easy to forget how far we've come in our knowledge of whether and how it can shape our future. Today's guest hasn't forgotten the past at all. in fact he loves to write about it. We're excited to welcome bestselling author eric. Jay dolin who has authored fourteen books and more than sixty articles. Today will discuss his latest book. A furious sky the five hundred year. History of america's hurricanes and will learn what his inspiration has been for many of his acclaimed works. Thank you for joining us eric. On whether podcast. Thank you for having me. Well you know this is weather geeks and so there's a standard question. I always ask every guest. And i don't know that you have an answer but i have to imagine you're at least somewhat of a weather geek since you write about whether sometimes so how'd you sort of find affinity or get into weather. Well i don't think i can ascend to geat status. I've always watched the weather avidly. And i love being out in the weather but this book got it start because i didn't fascinated by hurricanes didn't know a lot about them and i thought about writing a book about a hurricane for a number of years but part of the problem was the two hurricanes that were the most likely candidates that galveston hurricane of nineteen hundred and the great hurricane of nineteen thirty. Already had a bunch of really good books written about them. So i didn't want to just add to the list of books that were already out there. So i put aside my hurricane idea and i wrote a book on lighthouses and then on pirates and then finally after the hurricane season of two thousand seventeen which is all your listeners. In new certainly no was like a hurricane season from hell with maria harvey and irma. Right after that my publisher got in contact with my agent than they thought that the time was ripe for a book. The history of america's hurricanes and they knew that i had written a lot of books that spans centuries in pulled together a lot of information. So they asked me if i was interested in writing that book and they landed on prime territory because i was very interested but it took about a month and a half before i said yes what i did is i went off and i read a bunch of classic books about hurricanes and weather and i tried to envision what this book would look like if i wrote it and once i got to the point that i was confident that i could actually write a an exciting an interesting narrative story of five hundred years of hurricanes. That's when the book came into being. And i spent nearly two years working on it so so now now it may maybe officially whether d.c right now it certainly not when i started well on behalf of all weather geeks in this podcast we are now officially or donohue a weather gig but no in all seriousness though. Yeah i think one of those things in hurricanes particularly that it's fascinating we're going to dive all into your book. Let me give a little bit about your background so that the listeners just know who were talking about Eric actually has a bs in From university a masters in environmental management from yale and a ph d. in environmental policy and planning from mit. His dissertation focused on the role of the courts in the cleanup of boston harbor. So i mentioned in the intro. You've written over fourteen bucks before we really dive into The book about hurricanes. Just tell us about some of the you mentioned books about lighthouses. What are some of the other things written about. Yeah no i. I wrote a book on the history wailing. America that's the was back in two thousand seven calls the via thin. I wrote a book on the china trade. When america first met china the china trade between the american revolution and the civil war i wrote the book on lighthouses called brilliant beacons which is like a four century history of lighthouses however book call for fortunate empire which dramatic history of the for trade in america. And how it helped to create our nation absurd the early nineteen hundreds. Well i mean. I'm trying i'm trying to find a thread to the that you right and i'm having difficulty there. Are there any common threads or do you just kinda right what you're interested in or yeah right when i'm interested in but there is one sort of thread even though the for trade book sounds like it's solely terrestrial it had a big section on the seattle trade with china and that's how actually i got interested in the idea of writing a book on the china trade. My pirate book is also about maritime issues. So i'd say at the end to pick once red is i like large scale a phenomenon that have some connection to the ocean. I live in marblehead massachusetts. As you may know is twenty miles north of boston. It's right on the coast. I live about a quarter of a mile from the ocean. I've always loved the ocean when i was a kid. I wanted to grow up and be jacques cousteau That didn't pan out. But i had a fascination for anything relating to wildlife and the ocean. I was seashell collector. I spend a lot of time walking along the beach so if there was one thing that connect almost all my books they have some kind of environmental or wildlife fame but also they have some either explicit or implied or can general connection to the ocean my next focus on private tearing during the american revolution. Which of course is attacking british commerce on the ocean. So there'll be a lot about ships and the ocean but that doesn't mean that in the future. I write a book. Bit is solely terrestrial or something. That's different but i do. Love the ocean. Yeah well and that certainly That threat certainly is woven into your work on hurricanes which we know that the oceans are the. You'll supply for hurricanes. Now it's interesting because you are just a writer as i look at some of my notes here from the production team you spent time. As a pro environmental protection agency of fisheries policy analysts with national marine fisheries a You get some writing with the american association for the advancement of science even worked as an intern at the national wildlife. Federation so I in these roles. I i wonder if they have given you inspiration and fodder perhaps even data for your books Yeah in indirect mandated. You look at my resume. That i can't keep a job which may be may be true of fires. One job was when. I was a clerk in a supermarket when i was a teenager but i do tend to jump around a lot when i was working. I have jumped around since becoming a fulltime writer in two thousand seven. Because this is what i love most to do but all does jobs had the environmental street. Some of them dealt with the option issues. I worked Coastal zone management office in massachusetts were My soon to be wife. And i worked on dredged materials management. I also worked for the national oceanic and atmospheric administration on fisheries management. So again there's that connection between the environment and the ocean. I think runs through my experience but also my interest in writing because while it had all those jobs i was always in the writing on the side or writing for work and i suddenly not suddenly but in late nineteen nineties. I realized that writing is what i'd like to do so i started and mapped out a plan. Maybe it's too Too much to call out a plan. But i i told my wife. I want to be a fulltime writer. And she said that's fine You have to earn some money at it. I basically said. I had to put aside a years worth of my salary before. I could consider quitting my job. I worked for many years on a number of books. Some did quite well and eventually in the summer of two thousand and seven. My wife said i quit my job. I couldn't have done it without report. In support of my family i did. I left my job in two thousand seven. That i've been writing books ever said. It's the hardest job i've ever had but it's it's a lot of fun. I get to meet interesting people. And because i ran on different topics even though they might have a central fruit theme i see these different little subcultures and i have to say that i was fascinated to learn about the whole weather subculture. You call in geeks a Bryan norcross they call them whether we need at one point when i was talking to an amazing group of people were just so into The science history and everything related to these weather in meteorological phenomenon and then. I got to get a peek behind the scenes because i was reading so much about what professional. Meteorologists have done over the centuries and it was just fascinating. I'd the same phrase. When i wrote a book on for tree i learned about all these Rendezvous mountain men re-enactors. These people that are into that the chain and trade is a whole subculture in white house. oh boy lighthouses. There are people that have lighthouse passwords the country and they visit lighthouses. Sometimes as many as five or six hundred and i met this whole sub culture of people who just fascinated by lighthouses. And so it's really been really neat. I wanted to say something this is. I'm not just saying this is your meteorologist. I have so much more respect. I had respect before for meteorologists and my main connection was through weather forecasters. Tv which do a great job giving us a weather. But if you just look at that you can get jaded perspective in thank. Oh they're just reading from a script they say the same thing over and over again but after writing in researching this book and talking to meteorologists some of them I just got this newfound appreciation one. For how complex meteorology really is especially irked gains trying to model on those computer models and trying to make projections but added to that is the incredible intensity of that part of the job because your predictions are going to affect the movements of perhaps millions of people. And that's a lot of pressure because if you get it wrong. You're bill fide. When you get right nine out of ten times people say. Don't really say anything that's what you're supposed to do. But it's just amazing to me the amount of work that goes into it and the and the professional a nature of and also the complexity. I took physics in high school. I didn't do too well no i. I've had many conversations with students that walked into my office at the university of georgia wanting to major in meteorology until they saw the physics and calculus dynamics and thermodynamics. But yeah that's a really interesting point you make. Because i'm the as a former president of the american meteorological society. One of the things that i immediately learned is only about six to eight percent of meteorologist or even tv urologist. But that's what most of the public is familiar with and wrack my own careers meteorology. I have not even made a ever made a forecast. I worked for nasa developing weather. Climate satellites and so forth so It it is a much interesting field. I'm glad you had a chance to sort of really dip. Your toe into we used the term. We embrace it because we know that you know. It's one of those terms that in a certain narrative leaguer weenie could have a negative connotation but we try to when we develop the tv show for whether geeks imelda podcast. We wanted to embrace the term. Because there's some really passionate smart people out there in this field. And i know some of them are listening right now and our say marshall trip pivot to his discussion of the hurricane. Passed right after we come back from this break and we're back on the weather podcast. I'm dr marshall shepherd and we're talking with erik dolan about the history of hurricanes and he has the fascinating new book called the furious scouting of furious guy the five hundred year history of america's hurricanes. And i know that whether he's listeners the saying let's get into that conversation. Let's do it. But i You have an interesting take care. Perspective on the origin of the word hurricane is that right. Yeah that was one of the fascinating things to learn about as your listeners. No doubt no. Christopher columbus was the first european to make it to the quote unquote new world. Which of course wasn't discovered people. Been populating it for millennia but one thing that christopher columbus knew nothing about was hurricanes during his four voyages to the new world. Not only did he often treat a local natives quite horrifically but he also talked to them and was able to communicate to some extent one of the things that he learned about was these massive storms and they told him about the signs that could be used to sort of anticipate the coming of earth gain including a red sky in the morning and High cirrus clouds for absent a long deep swells. And although we don't have record of. I'm sure they also were able to tell them how the animals Both in the water and on land maybe acted a little differently with the approach of a low pressure system So christopher columbus became aware of hurricanes and he also heard how they referred to hurricanes because the different cultures in The caribbean and central america and south america had different names for the The god of weather often been dictated. She appeared cod of weather. The mayan culture called these storms on reagan or. Call the god of weather on reagan. The tanno indians called it. You're a cane Metro getting the pronunciation. Exactly correct. But all these different variations on on in rockin euro. Cain those were adopted by the european starting with christopher columbus and they started to call it Hurricane and that word hurricane got translated into other european languages in an often sounds similar in different languages. But that's how we came up with the word hurricane. Of course of course is us a fascinating story about the evolution of different names in different parts of the world is A lot of people are not aware of who read my book. They didn't know that hurricanes are exactly like typhoons or cyclones. Cyclones are just different names for similar phenomenon. But one of the strangest names. That i came across and i'm not sure how much australian australians use it today but australian apparently used to refer to hurricanes or cyclones willy willies cockeyed. Bob's so hurricane. Has you know very well as what we call these meteorological phenomenon the atlantic and the eastern pacific so that sort of a brief history. It's much more extensive in the book of the where the word hurricane came from. Yeah and it's interesting. Yeah i was familiar with the term willie williams. There's bits and contrary. Because i actually wrote something about that in a path and someone from australia it was like we don't call them that by. I'm glad you clarified something that they used to call it. Because i remember on twitter being accosted if you will by someone we don't call them anymore but certainly early in the history before we think about the galveston storm In there's a book that i don't know if you're familiar with Isaac storm horse the talks about sort of these storms in galveston storm early in the last century. You know we didn't have these nice models and satellites that warren. But i can imagine it was even worse. Well beyond that you know when we're talking about some of the earlier settlers and explorers in how they had to deal with these storms. I imagine you get into that. And i know that you do from canada. Taking a peek into sort of some of the early challenges that people dealt with in the sort of pre technology era Talk a little bit about a certainly in the fifteen hundred sixteen hundred seventeen hundred eighty up through the early eighteen hundreds Hurricanes are often viewed as act acts of god. It was not until the late seventeen hundred eighteen. Hundreds of people started to do them more as natural events. But the real problem was they didn't have any ability to Sort of forecast their approach other than things that christopher columbus made use of and they weren't very good at it so the great colonial hurricane of sixteen thirty five which slammed into of the plymouth colony in the massachusetts bay colony in sixteen thirty five a basically came out of nowhere as far as the people on land concerned and many people who are on ships at sea and people an opportunity to Running escape and many people died at a major impact on early colonial light. And you see that time and time again which with these hurricanes for which we have surprisingly good records even going back to the sixteen hundreds in late fifteen hundred that these massive storms could just abandoned a local communities life literally overnight and they had very little warning that it was coming but even into the nineteen hundreds there are hurricanes that shift a course very rapidly and even when we had some Early detection like in the one thousand nine hundred eighty five labor day hurricane when the weather bureau was up and operating in asbury well training meteorologist and had some limited ability to track hurricanes as a move moved across the atlantic and and towards the north american coast bad hurricane. Was it what happened. Towards the end of that there. A rapid intensification period and a shift in direction. So it wasn't until the very last minute almost literally that the weather bureau finally got the track right by that time Relief operations in evacuation efforts at already fail and about four hundred and fifty people died including many world. War one veterans but even today i mean one of the things that i get asked a lot when i give talks on this book is why can't we know exactly where a hurricane is going. Well in advance And that's because these are incredibly complex meteorological phenomenon the computer models that we use people like you used to try to forecast where hurricanes going have the Incredibly complex calculations millions of iterations and when dealing with the natural environment in your ability to map. What's actually happening out there. In real time you're inevitably not going to be one hundred percent correct until the exact onset of the hurricane. The the i'm moving over of the coastline so even today i think one of the things that frustrates people with all this hi-tech gadgetry that we have maybe gadgetry said that's the wrong term. You know satellites computer models historical records Ships at sea buoy es all sorts of stuff. Still there's some element of mystery when it comes to forecasting a hurricane and they still are able to provide surprises often very unpleasant surprises for those communities that suddenly find themselves in across areas and i have to add pleasant surprises for those communities. Who days out were a being targeted by the forecast. And basically they were. The ones are going to get craned and then. The forecast changes the hurricane moves fifty miles hundred miles to the west or east and suddenly out of the danger zone. So i think that's part of the reason why people get so fascinated by hurricane coverage. 'cause it's it's dramatic real life. Tv you can't imagine drama that comes from a hurricane slamming into the coast and people are riveted that kind of coverage and it's interesting. Yeah we herk the really challenging i will. I will say that. In recent decades are are tracked forecasting as far exceeded our intensity forecasting skill as you noted. There will always and will always be there. That's why we issue a cone of uncertainty rather than align when we can give those forecasts as you noted people still sort of want. I think it's a challenge in our social sciences colleagues. Have kind of gotten into this world now because the people still envision these hurricanes is lying dot on the map as opposed to large broad enough I think we've made progress in track. Manatt intensity that the answer to the question. I often give you often receive is why. Why can't we give exact answers where these hurricanes is going that magic putting in will into the mississippi river and its spinning along. Its it's moving in a fluid itself and trying to sort of pinpoint exactly downstream four days. Where that that storm will be so the lesson. There is always wise. The evolving forecast don't forecast five days ago and say well. They said it was going to go this way because it is constantly changing. You mentioned for more recent storms and i know that you talk about maria in your book and the devastation puerto rico. What are some lessons from past hurricanes or even perhaps more recent ones that you feel should be brought out to the broader society that you write about in your book. There's sort of these prevailing lessons that emerge. Yeah at the end of the book. I talked about the fact that it's really a history book and i didn't wanna give prescriptive policy advice. Although i talk about a number of things that could be done. And i certainly have opinions on that one thing that relates directly to your listeners. In you is that people are paying more attention to meteorologists than not get upset with them when they get something slightly wrong and realize that this is an amazing public service that national hurricane center a national weather service and all the other meteorologists are providing for us and and they they should extend the politicians one of the problems of hurricanes is if you have one. It's going to slam into the coast. Local politicians regional auditions off. Make decisions about evacuations. And that's all well and good. If hurricane strikes were they expected to strike and the evacuation results in saving many people's lives. But there have been instances where evacuations have been called which are very expensive and then the hurricane has drifted to a different area and a lot of people get upset that they were evacuated and all that cost is incurred. I would encourage people to be more lenient. When it comes to reacting to hurricane warnings and watches and what they're being told to do by public officials who only have their best interests at heart. Another thing that i think really needs to be thought about society especially in a warming world is the The the melting of the glaciers thermal expansion of the ocean ocean rising. It's getting higher so storm surges many hurricane or need more damaging necessarily than they would have been asked if the ocean was at a lower level but people need to think long and hard about where they're building how they're building we retain you to have this rush to the coast and perhaps i'm guilty that i live in marble but i don't right on the ocean. I'm a quarter mile from beach and even my little town has been simulations. Recently about how global warming potential hurricane strike might affect things and. The story is not so i would hope that. Regional planners and the federal government pay more attention to a demographic shifts and also development patterns in areas along the coast in one area. We should particularly be careful about is salt marshes and other coastal wetlands. One of the problems. That places like new orleans is face than Along the gulf coast is there has been a massive A decrease in the amount of coastal wetlands largely due to human development and coastal wetlands are excellent excellent natural shock absorbers for storm surges and hurricane impacts so by destroying those wetlands. We're increasing the risk that the local towns and communities face from these hurricanes Not going to stop coming ashore so we can be a lot smarter about how he planned for the future and also perhaps take a steps that protect us or shield us from future hurricanes strikes. Unfortunately we have a poor track record with that in some areas. Look at what happened with hurricane katrina and the lettie system and wall system that had been built to withstand a category three hurricane but clearly couldn't stand up to the category three hurricane katrina and even more recently There have been problems with a multi ten twenty thirty billion dollar investment down there to shore up the levees and put in newcomb's even that is slowly subsiding into the sediment causing a whole round of new problems that the people in new orleans are going to have to deal with it. They want to protect their Their lives and their community. So i think there are plenty of things we can do. You have add. This is only one of many social concerns political concerns and we have limited time limited amount of money so whether society invest the amount of money and time necessary to deal better with hurricanes we add. An pass is an open question but i think there are plenty of things and we are back on. The weather geeks podcast. I'm dr march chap university of georgia. And i'm speaking with eric. Dolan about the history of kings in his new book about the history of furious sky. The five hundred year history of america's hurricanes you. I want to pivot to discussion now to something you talk about in the book you you discuss. Dan rathers nineteen sixty one coverage of her king. And how it altered the future of broadcasting. Now them. I see the criticism out there at times of how does entities and journalists cover hurricanes today and they immersed themselves in the storm and there's twenty four seven coverage their critics out there that say that's hyping letter that's just meetings driven and so forth but i think there's a story in between about toward Eluded to the fascination with and that sort of drama that unfolds and also the real information warning that it's provided by that coverage. Talk to us about why. Why are you feel that covered by dan. Rather fundamentally altered the way we cover these storms in broadcasting in general well that was hurricane. Carla slammed into the texas coast. Nineteen sixty sixty or sixty one Can't remember anyway. It's in the book and the thing is one sixty one. That's right at the edge of when we started to You know we had radar in place. Then we're just starting with the satellite red revolution. But it hadn't taken off. But dan rather went down to gallison. He was local teacher order. further north northern he went down to galveston be there when they're a game came ashore and he was in the local weather bureau station. Notice that they have this radar that gate you intermittent images of what is swirling behemoth of a storm look like and he came up with the idea of. Can we show that on tv. It's always good to have visuals on. Tv and the local weather bureau guy called headquarters and apparently got the okay because they not only showed this radar. Loop avail superimposed. A map of the gulf coast and suddenly people realize that this hurricane was massive covering much of the gulf coast the gulf coast the texas region and it was a really impressive sort of visual. Cue that they believe that people involved at the time. And i'm sure it did it. Impressed upon the viewers the seriousness of the situation in probably helped encourage many people to decide to evacuate whereas if they hadn't seen how massive this storm was a might have stayed in place so that was sort of the beginning of the era when tv really started to take off and their weather coverage it started in the fifties golden age television but it was really a satellite loop. Starting to come in We we have the ability to for people go with cameras and report live about hurricanes that we in a sense have been overwhelmed by coverage. And i want to point out. I can't tell you the exact line that is the line. We should draw but there is a fine line. Maybe not such a fine line between just accurate straightforward reporting and hype. That helps with ratings. And i have absolutely no doubt that many tv stations have stepped over that line willingly Because in the end Tv weather and tv stations are money making operations and if there are stories that people gets people glued to the tv set. Those are the ones that the law go it. However i will add that based on my personal experience and the experience of other people many tv weather forecasts are very professional very restrained and accurate and If the hurricane is really big scary ominous and it's causing devastation. Just reporting on it can seem like when in fact it's just a reflection of reality but i think it's something that meteorologists and people the national weather service need to have in the back of their mind. You don't wanna scare people unnecessarily but Deciding and i'm sure there are courses. They learn weather forecasters and others. They may take courses. they discuss Amongst one another how they can report on. These aims both to get people to take. The action is necessary given the information. They need to make decisions but not totally freaked them out. Cause a panic. Yeah i i think this is right. And i think there is a fine line and i think there is value in sort of in storm reporting. I mean you see. Journalists in war zones in landslides on and so forth best the nature of press immersive coverage of my. I have been concerned at times. When i've seen really inexperienced reporters crafts people that don't understand the storm and year all throughout their in the midst of the storm and perhaps even in some that are more experienced because there. I think there's an element of danger but i think the people that know what they're doing with look for know what lines not to cross as you know. We're we're can people. Because i know that there it'd be listeners. Here that want to get their hands on your book immediately Any websites or social media where people can go find your book where they can buy in stores and follow asocial Well you can find it in any bookstore. Online were a brick and mortar bookstores. They don't have it on the shelf. They could certainly water it so any online bookseller like amazon. Or barnes and noble books a million or your local independent bookstore should be able to get your copy also if people are interested For president getting autograph copy by me. Just go to my website which is www dot. Eric j dolan e. r. i c. j. d. o. l. i. n. dot com and there. There's a page that says signed copies where you go to find out about getting a signed copy but also point tables on my website because you learn a lot about other books. But also i posted the entire introduction to a furious skies. You can read it and decide whether you think it sounds interesting enough to take the next step and get the get the book. I also have a book trailer that put together so getting the book is not a problem. one of the thing. I will add professional facebook pages. Pose my personal facebook page. Where i post a lot about my books. General history in nature. But also i have had quite a few posts lately about the hurricane Post experts got one coming up on the development of the telegraphy and how that affected hurricanes. Tony there's no impediment to getting a copy of the book. And i hope some people do final question and you lose to this earlier in the podcast. Well what are your forthcoming projects. While my next book. And i'm working on right now i'm just getting. The point is starting to write. It is on privateers during the american revolution. That's basically when american merchant ships got arm got permission from the continental congress in state a colony governments to go out and attack british commerce to both bring goods into the colonies and also harass the great british lion and make it more likely that they were going to decide. This war was too much trouble to continue in a privateer in was a very widespread phenomenon. Had a number of very interesting impacts a lot of dramatic stories about battles it say and also within the larger tableau of the american revolution. That's the book. I'm working on now. What comes after that. I don't know maybe another weather topic. I dunno well given this discussion. I wouldn't looking forward to in zion church of when they go out there and check this out. Sounds fascinating Before we get out of here it is now time for our geek of the week. We like to highlight a scientist superstar. Great geologist or a weather weenie. At the end of every podcast this episode geek of the week is chris reese. Chris is a broadcast meteorologist for w. i. Setv in madison wisconsin. One of his favorite things about living in madison is that it's not as hot and humid as the south. I live in the south. So i know about that. I think many people would agree with him to the biggest new stories ever covered with a total solar eclipse in two thousand seventeen but as far as madison he secretly waiting for that great blizzard. One day cruise strives to help make the world a better place in. He has overcome many obstacles naysayers to get where he is today. Keep shining your light.

The Democratic National Convention wrapped up on Thursday night and former vice president. Joe. Biden is now the official presidential nominee for the Democratic Party, his running mate US Senator Kamala. Harris from California was nominated as the party's vice presidential pick on Wednesday night. During this four day event Democrats spoke out against incumbent President Donald Trump and promoted nominee joe. Biden, as the best choice for voters twenty twenty, it'll be the exact opposite next week when the Republican National Convention gets underway. These conventions are an American tradition. There were the country's major political parties, nominate their candidates to find what they stand. For it and upcoming election and try to drum up voter support for that election. This is what they normally look like. This is what they look like socially distant year with many of the speeches made truly and no roaring crowds of conventions past for the Democrats speakers included former presidents and presidential candidates, current and former political leaders. The Republican National Convention is set to begin Monday. It'll also run through Thursday. It will also be largely virtual and we'll promote president trump as the best choice for voters. The election is scheduled for Tuesday November third the debates when the presidential and vice presidential candidates face off against each other are set to begin in late. September. Ten Seconds Trivia eighties tie is a type of what coronavirus plant paper hieroglyphics or must feed them. This is a species of mosquito that can carry deadly diseases. Controversial plan is moving ahead to release Genetically Modified Mosquitos into the Florida keys more than seven, hundred, fifty, thousand of the insects are set to be introduced there why the Eighties Agip Thomas Kito can carry dangerous diseases like the Zeke of virus dengue fever, and yellow fever officials are looking for new ways to kill off these insects without using pesticides and Genetically Modified Mosquitos. This, only female mosquitoes bite people, the altern insects that are set to be released in Florida are male they've been modified so that the female offspring they produce will die before they hatch from their eggs and grow big enough to bite people and the company that developed these GMO mosquitoes says they've been very successful in controlling mosquito populations in Panama. Brazil and the Cayman Islands but they're strong opposition among people in Florida to releasing. The altered mosquitoes there one technology and food safety advocate called Jurassic Park experiment and said there's no way to know what could go wrong because government officials haven't done enough to review the risks. Environmental groups are also concerned about what could happen to the birds, mammals and other insects that eat the GMO mosquitoes. The altered insects are set to be released in the Florida keys in the years twenty, twenty, one, and twenty, twenty two. Have you ever noticed when you're out on a summer evening that some of you get bit by mosquitoes much more than others. So what's behind that with appears that it might be our DNA. Researchers in London looked at identical twins and fraternal twins fraternal twins do not have identical. DNA. And when they took the mosquitoes and they expose them to the fraternal twins, the fraternal twins were often bit in differing amounts. It wasn't exactly the same but when it came to identical twins, if one twin got bit quite a bit, then the other twin got bit quite a bit as. Well. So what's going on here while the researchers hypothesized that it has to do with how we smell so they wrapped these twins in foil. This is believe it or not how you get body odors out. So they can look at the body odors and they can measure them. Now they're going to analyze these odors and see what is it about each odor that mosquitoes like or dislike. So maybe one day in the future somebody who smells good to the Mosquitos could take a pill so they wouldn't smell so good to -squitoes. GENEVIEVE is the name of a hurricane that pass near the coast of Baja California Mexico this week at one point the storm was an intense category four hurricane but it had weakened to category one strength with winds of eighty five miles per hour when it spun off the Mexican coast still strong winds and a lot of rain were expected on the peninsula. Aside from genevieve, the eastern Pacific Ocean has been quieter than usual as far as hurricanes go this season that may not be the case in the North Atlantic it season officially started months ago but according to CNN ten contributor tyler molden its peak often coincides with the start of the school year tyler. That's right Carl. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June first to November thirtieth, and this week is when we normally begin seeing the numbers increase. We see tippety come to a peak on average around September tenth every year forecasters at the National Oceanic and atmospheric administration also known as Noah are expecting a lot of tropical storms and hurricanes. This year they think we could have twenty five named storms. They've never forecast that many storms. There are several reasons for their forecast, one of the most important reasons as a potential. But what exactly is alanine A-. An. Order to answer that question we must. I look in the Pacific Ocean because what happens in the Pacific Ocean actually affects what happens downstream in the Atlantic Ocean everything's connected when the ocean water is cooler than it normally would be the East Pacific then Alanine has formed the Lena. The atmosphere creating a calm comfortable home over the Atlantic Ocean for hurricanes to develop. Now, hurricanes like that. Since face because the winds tend to be lighter and coming from the same direction as you go up in the air, this is the system to grow and develop hurricanes also like hot water and I mean really hot water like bathtub hotter than seventy eight degrees Fahrenheit from the coast of Africa all the way to the coast of the United States. These bright colors on your screen indicates the Atlantic Ocean is way hotter than it should be. Unfortunately, we do have both ingredients coming together. This year Noah says there is a higher the normal likelihood that Alanine could form and the Atlantic Ocean is extremely warm. All the time. Inc., and now you know the science behind this season could rewrite the record books and take the number one spot. Now Carl, in case you're wondering the year two, thousand five currently holds at top spot for the most tropical systems in a single season. Thanks, Tyler that's win. There were a record twenty seven named storms with fourteen of them. Becoming hurricanes. Hurricane forecasting is not an exact science. Each year Noah's prediction includes a range of named storms and hurricanes, and it says, these predictions are made with seventy percent confidence that the actual number will fall within that range but no does not predict the number of storms that make landfall in the US. It says those can't be predicted more than a week in advance, and after that two thousand, five record season the US are hurricane drought when twelve years passed without a single major hurricane making landfall in America.

How bad will this winter be in Minnesota? Could go either way
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets it gets in Jobs Bank of America. NA member FDIC how good are those winter forecasts. I'm NPR chief meteorologist. Just Paul Hutton here. This is climate cast one thing we know for sure in Minnesota. Winter is coming so how much and long-range climate forecasters really tell us about this upcoming winter. Let's ask Pete Boulay from the Minnesota. DNR climate working group Hi Pete Great to talk with you again. Ed Great to be Your Ball. We know the first of Minnesota's two seasons road construction is winding down right so that must mean winter is coming. I checked with no other climate prediction center and they don't suggest any trends for a warmer or colder winter right absolutely the there's not much direction this year for temperature sure at all so they went with the three sided coin equal chances above normal or below temperatures and so that's how they break down these forecasts tell us a little a little bit about that whether waited for one direction or the other so there could be a little bit of a tilt for above normal or below normal and then their confidence level increases from there air every ten percent so rarely. DC A real extreme on either case for Minnesota least let's talk about what some call the Blob that unusually warm bubble of water in the eastern Pacific off the west coast is back it happened in twenty fourteen and my sense of it atmospherically as it supports warm weather in California that puts us downstream often the northwest flow potentially could mean plenty of cold outbreaks sure and that's the real key. There's a big difference where that gentle setup so to the north and east of that jet will be cold south and west of the jet will be warm and you know one thing to look for to that's happening. This fall is warm water temperatures all around Alaska Aska Alaska's got a very good chance of having a very warm fall so the longer that persist the less chance will have forgetting some real extreme cold air because of cold air has gotta gotta come from somewhere and it felt in the Arctic in Alaska stays warm. Our Pool of cold air will be somewhat limited as you look at the atmospheric factors this winter. What indicators do you see. That might give us a clue about how this winter could unwind. One factor is you know overall trends have been for increased precipitation in the winter in general so last last nine out of ten winters have had above normal precipitation. That's meteorological winner December through February. I call the almanacs the worst of the weather they're terrorists because they always seem to predict the worst winter ever every year and I see their long-term. Accuracy is about fifty fifty at best. What about the no outlooks outlooks. What's the state of the Science of seasonal climate prediction. The farmer's ALMANAC have my mom and her friends terrorize just petrified with fear with this winter the thing it's going to be the worst ever and it really doesn't look like it will be I look back in the last couple of years from the climate prediction center's. I'll look for the winter see how well they did. Last last winter they were banking on a war were the normal and a dry winter and it turned out to be normal to cool very wet so they didn't do so good for eighteen thousand nine the year before that they said cool and wet and it turned out to be normal in cool and normal the wet so I'll give him a pass and that when they did okay so sometimes I do pretty good and sometimes they you might as well go with just the opposite so anything could happen and it is a very difficult process isn't it. I mean the Tele connections that we talk about out in the atmosphere. How warm water in the Pacific or jetstream patterns will affect winter or a season is pretty hard to pin down. An atmosphere is very fickle fickle. Where were those storm set up. You can build on a winter by getting a early snow. Cover a long duration snow cover and that adds to the coolness It's it's like a puzzle with some of the pieces missing seems like climatologist people lay with the Minnesota. DNR climate working group. Thanks for your perspective on climate cast today glad to see how it pans out off. The stay tuned. That's climate cast. I'm N._P._R. Chief Meteorologist Paul Hutton her.

Lantis killed in what u._s. Experts believe was the botched test of a new missile touted by bladder mir putin and finally vice president joe biden. Anna is considered the front runner for the democratic nomination probably because he's the best known of all the candidates some say that he's the front runner because primary voters believe he's is the best equipped candidate to take on trump. Many of us argued that he missed that boat. His gaffes while expected are taking on a new life for their own for instance yeah well campaigning in iowa this weekend. Biden said he met with students for marjory stoneman douglas high school in parkland florida during his time as vice president. I watch watch what happened when the kids from parkland marched up to and i i i met with them and then he went off to up on the hill is vice president. They went off the hill to go into those neighborhoods all those congress. I were like no. I'm not here. I'm not here. I don't tell them i'm around that didn't happen. Joe biden left office more than a year before the shooting in parkland florida was at a gaffe wasn't a lie. I put that in a lying category when it comes to gaffes biden has been prolific in recent days two days before the parkland statement joe biden told an audience of asian and hispanic voters this and the other thing we should do is you should challenge these students uh-huh. We should challenge students in these schools. They have advanced placement programs in these schools. We have this notion that somehow if you're poor you cannot do it for kids. Did you just as bright injustice towns white kids wealthy. Kids kids asian really mean but think about it yeah. He swooped john quickly to correct the blunder but the fact that that pause was there in the first place should give you pause those follow a few other gaffes that it just keep piling up like the little ones like this and ladies and gentlemen. It's time to get up. Everybody knows who donald trump is. Even as supporters know who he is. We gotta let i don't know who we are. We choose you over division. We choose science over fiction.

All the President's Missing Men
"Welcome back is Barada a podcast takes ten minutes to get you smarter on the collision of business and politics. I'm Deborah MAC on today's show. Google goes full Honey badger and the auto world's megamerger crashes into a political wall. The first all the president's missing men. So President Trump came into office promising to bring quote the best people into his administration, but we've gotten instead is largely in empty administration. Not one of the best people are the worst people, but of not very, many people, that's the finding axios look this morning at the Trump cabinet which shows that no president in recent history has started his tenure with as many extended cabinet vacancies as Trump and it's not even close Trump cabinet positions have been empty for a whopping one thousand three hundred ninety seven days so far at the same time in his first term Obama's number, just two hundred eighty eight days and George, W Bush, just thirty four days, in fact, since Reagan, the next closest to Trump's thirteen ninety seven was Bill Clinton. But he was only three hundred and twenty two days, meaning Trump's total is four. Times longer. Why it matters is that we're not talking here about tenth level bureaucrats. The people were talking about are supposed to be the ones. The vetted ones overseeing everything from our military to our environment, char relations with the rest of the world. The folks who are there right now are stretched thin very thin, and that's in the absence of any major crisis. If things turn bad in any arena, than the lack of bodies could begin to bite in fifteen seconds, we'll go deeper with axios, executive editor Mike, Allen. The first this axiom chief technology correspondent in free shares. Breaking news and analysis on the most consequential companies players intact from the valley to subscribe to get smarter faster at up dot axios dot com. And now back to the program podcast. We're joined now by access executive editor Mike Allen from the reporting this morning, all of these empty cabinet positions, or at least empty in terms of Senate approved heads of these departments. Is this an indication that the so-called deep state is actually alive and well, in that federal institutions can survive? Presidential neglect certainly a part of that's true that the government is still functioning. But look at what's not happening. So sometimes I will visit cabinet secretaries and they will show me the vacant offices, the vacant rooms near their offices, and that's supposed to be there people their deputies. And so part of this is Senate failing to confirm, but a lot of it is swollen at the White House. Part of it is just a broken process, and part of it is they think this is part of the way to shrink government veterans of other administrations will tell you know, the way shrink government is not by not having in your own people to do your stuff. Let me actually ask about that, which, I mean how much of this is from your? Perspective intentional in the shrinking, government thing as opposed to, as you say, slowness slowness with the process of method or madness is the big way this administration, you could write a book called that funny thing is the president course won't admit this. Even when you ask him about it, there's a new book coming out a very shortly from yahu news called all the best people. And in an interview for that the president was asked about this and he not only said that he had all the people he needed. He said it was a matter of how many he'd turned away, but he did admit that some of the people that he had picked been clinkers that's an old timey word. That is an old time. We were can we read anything, you know, when I look at this the longest vacancies particularly the top two EPA administrators number one, UN ambassador is number two? Can we read something into that, with where Trump's priorities or lack of priorities are specifically EPA and UN being the top two here? Sure as long as you and I have been covering government and campaigns. People said people are policy. We're really seeing it here, but the Wyatt manners of this, Dan, is that people who've worked in that building past fficials of other administrations. Former officials of this administration say their biggest worry is the lack of bandwidth and talent in this administration. Like it's always been than we staff. There's never been the quality or the quantity that you would expect in the government goes back to the simple fact that, as you know, Dan, the president didn't think he was gonna win. I was there. They thought they were gonna lose four two and therefore the election. And so the administration was never adequately stabbed. They have not caught up, and that's been compounded by personnel office. The is clearly sluggish and the cover mission. She's on the hill, a lot of these visions, which were calling empty do have acting-heads defense, for example, has an acting head defensive. There's a person physically in the job that just haven't been confirmed by the Senate. Mike does this. Whether it be Trump or somebody else, in, that's what house does this become some sort of new normal, because if I'm the president and. I like this person in the cabinet position. It really care if they've gone through Senate confirmation. I mean, the, the country should care because there's vetting etcetera from the president. I've got my guy there. Don't he doesn't have to go through all that aren't happy? No that smart. This is a loophole. I think other people hadn't thought of. Didn't want to exploit but yeah, that's incredible. That there's the president's chief of staff is an acting chief of staff, and has been it doesn't seem to mind. No, that's right. And the media and the Sunday shows to call Mick Mulvaney acting. I don't know when we just decide to go ahead that he is the president's chief of staff. But yeah, that goes back to December. So he's been acting for half a year. Now I'm thinking back to the access on HBO interview last week, Jonathan swan Jared Kushner, and at the end of it, he basically said, what, what do you think this ministration will be remembered for since administrations? Usually only remember for a couple of things in history response was bringing people to DC who aren't from DC kind of bring these outsiders in. But when you look at the Trump, at least, particularly the cabinet positions, there's very few outsiders outside of Trump's family. They're mostly folks who used to be in these departments, a couple of governors, and then a couple of Wall Street, or so, I guess would be the outsiders here really outside of Ben Carson Betsy DeVos. They're all insiders, you're totally right about. Abetter point would have been for him to say that he'd brought the voice of other people if that's your position. And you could certainly argue that, but you look at the cabinet members in the first term, this'll give you pause. Whether you're Republican or democrat, if you think about this cabinet, if the president is reelected, if it's a vindication, term, imagine that cabinet, but it's gonna make it even harder to bring in people for the jobs, who actually do the work, and that's the worry about this lack of bandwith laughing of experience, lack of talent finally axios on HBO KYW's ask quick preview. Second episode is six PM eastern Pacific this Sunday night, so Jonathan swan abroad Jonathan swan will be an Italy in this addition of axios on HBO with an exclusive look inside the monastery where Steve Bannon has been teaching and preaching populism. We also for your listeners in a freed did a news, making interview. With the Google CEO, Sunder CHAI. Well, Steve Bannon animosity that makes all sorts of sense. Mike Allen, executive editor or acting executive editor of axios. Thanks for joining us. My final two right after this. There's more news than ever before. But these days, it's harder than ever to find it and to know what to trust axios. AM takes the effort out of getting smart by synthesizing the ten stories that will drive the day and telling you, I they matter subscribe at sign up dot axios dot com. And now back to the podcast. Now with them for my final two and first of his Google, which this morning announce it will pay two point six billion dollars to acquire data. Analytics startup called looker why it matters to Google. This is viewed as a play to help its third place, cloud unit better compete with Amazon web services and Microsoft, Azure, but more broadly, this is Google kind of thumbing its nose at federal regulators and legislators, both of which are launching investigations into possible. In fact, competitive behaviors by Google and other big tech platforms DC is certain to take notice of this looker deal, and it's reaction could make Google's rivals either more willing or less willing to do large acquisitions of their own and finally Fiat Chrysler last night, pulled the plug on its proposed merger with Renault, which would have created the world's third largest automaker. What happened in a word was politics, specifically the French government, which owns a fifteen percent stake in Renault? Ask for things to be delayed. Now, part of this was to better smooth things over with Japan, which is worried about the deals impact on longtime Renault partner. Her nissan. And in part, it was to get more assurances that the merger wouldn't result in any major layoffs, something of heightened interest in France after GE last week announced plans to put around one thousand jobs at a gas turbine manufacturing plant out on the street, Fiat Chrysler, apparently, realized this was going to be more geopolitical risk than it could stomach. And now moves on for no. In the French government, they're left to pick up the pieces, and we're done big things for listening to my producer, Tim show vers, if you enjoy these podcasts, please leave us a review have a great national yoyo day, and we'll be back on Monday with another podcast.

Tours are available for booking today and we'll be departing from october. Second twenty twenty to the end of twenty twenty one for more information into book your tour click on the link in the show notes if you remember back to my episode about the us canadian border. The british and americans originally set the boundary in the west on the forty nineth parallel. That was how they divided up the oregon territory with the exception that the british got full control of vancouver island. The area between vancouver island and the mainland wasn't resolved in the treaty. However the treaty said that the border would go down the middle of the strait of juan de fuca which is what separates washington state in vancouver. Island british columbia. The problem was there was more than one way to define. The middle of the channel within the strait of juan de fuca are the san juan islands. The middle of the channel could be defined as going through the center of the islands or it could be defined as going around the islands in the deepest part of the channel. It wasn't really clear which side of the border the islands light on the. Us and britain agreed to hold the islands in dispute and just sort of left it at that however dispute became the basis of what became known as the pig war in the straight are several islands. The most important of which is san. Juan island san juan island controls the mouth of the straight so both the americans and the british wanted to control that island to that end both the americans and the british aka canadians head settlers on the island. The british hudson bay company had set up a sheep ranch on the island in about twenty five. American settlers had also set up camp. The incident which started everything occurred june fifteenth eighteen fifty nine thirteen years to the day after the signing of the oregon treaty which explicitly left the sovereignty of the islands on resolved. In american by the name of lyman cutler found a pig rooting around his garden. Eating easiest potatoes. This wasn't the first time this had happened. He was so angered at the pig that he picked up his gun and shot it. The pig belong to an irishman named charles griffin. Who worked for the hudson. Bay company was a neighbor to cutler. He had several pigs that he let wander around freely. Cutler offered griffin ten dollars in compensation for the loss of the pig griffin refused the offer and insisted on one hundred dollars color then said he didn't have to pay anything because the pig had been trespassing in his garden and eating crops according to one account of the story which may or may not be true color told griffin your pig was eating my potatoes to which griffin replied. It is up to you to keep your potatoes out of my pig from here. To paraphrase ron burgundy things escalated quickly griffin contacted the british authorities and asked cutler be arrested for shooting. His pig in the rest of the americans be evicted. The american settlers not liking the idea of the british being able to arrest americans on what they believed to be their soil or the idea of being forcibly removed as brigadier general william s harney the staunchly anti-british military head of the oregon territory to send in troops on july fifteenth. He sent captain. George pickett who later became a confederate general famous for pickett's charge at the battle of gettysburg and sixty three other men to the island. They set up camp near the hudson bay. Sheep companies station. The british governor of an couvert island james. Douglas was angered at this intrusion by the americans so he contacted captain. Geoffrey phipps hornby of the royal navy. Who was sent to san juan island with the thirty one gun. Steam frigate hms tribune. This was soon followed by the hms satellite and the plumper which had thirty one and twenty one gun respectively throw july. The british kept bringing in marines for a possible and fitness landing. Hornby refused to take any action and instead waited for rear. Admiral lambert baynes. Who was the head of the entire eastern pacific fleet of the royal navy. All the while this was happening more. Americans kept streaming onto the island by august tenth. Not even two months after the pig was shot. There were four hundred sixty one. Americans with fourteen cannons in five british warships mounting seventy guns with two thousand one hundred and forty marines and sailors. Staring down at each other governor. Douglas was adamant that. Admiral baynes land on the island. He refused to do so saying that. Quote two great nations in a war over. A squabble about a pig was ridiculous. The american commanders were basically given the same order not to shoot first and only defend yourself if necessary by the time word of this incident got back to both washington and london. Both governments ordered everyone to stand down as this would perhaps be the dumbest reason ever to start a war in negotiations. Both countries agreed that the island would be jointly occupied by both military's with forces. One hundred men each soon after this was resolved the civil war started in a final resolution to the conflict was put on hold during the civil war. British authorities on vancouver island urged the british government to take back most of the puget sound region as the americans were occupied with the civil war but nothing was ever done in eighteen. Seventy one twelve years after the initial military occupation of the island. Both sides agreed to international arbitration by kaiser wilhelm of germany who awarded the islands to the united states on november twenty fifth eighteen. Seventy two the british withdrew from the island and the americans rushed in to hoist a giant american flag on the flagpole at the british camp only to find that the poll had been chopped down. The british government eventually replaced a flagpole in nine hundred ninety eight and today it is the only place where a foreign flag flies on land owned by the us federal government in recognition to the peaceful relations between the two countries for the last two hundred years. There's one interesting footnote that might put the pig war into perspective. After the two hundred th anniversary of the war of eighteen twelve between the americans the british historians found notes from british ministers after the war. Which said if there was to be any future war with the united states they would abandon all of their possessions in north america including all of. What is today canada. Rather than try to fight another war the cost of keeping it especially in the face of rapidly growing united states was too great and it will take resources away from what they considered their real prize india so if things had turned out just a little bit differently. The nation of canada might not exist today. All because a pig got into someone's garden executive producer of everything everywhere. Daily is james mcculloch.

We're taking you to an unlikely battlefield in the pacific ocean u._s. Officials finding a borderless war on drugs by trying to destroy trafficking routes and capturing alleged smugglers a risky cat and mouse game. We witnessed up close and personal. Here's a._b._c.'s matt gutman here in the vast pacific ocean on the americas. Being there was an order this for it's drug smugglers against louis coastguard crew members like mike. This are the latest frontier drugs where vessels like this show called darko sub par intercepted carrying more than seventeen thousand pounds at high speed pursuits breakout on the high seas as drug smugglers race talk fails of narcotics overboard quarter. We got special access inside the tactical operations of the u._s. Coastguard agency see that seizes three times as much co pain as all other u._s. law enforcement agencies and combined and witnessed firsthand the new <music> frontline on the war on drugs. Our journey begins on the coast of el salvador in twenty seventeen where the coast coast guard cutter stratton is preparing to depart this patrols the eastern pacific help other agencies and even international partners partners its mission to find an intercept drug boats carrying uncut cocaine before they could reach land these waters officials say now are the preferred routes to smuggled dope over the last year that you know the coastguards took over a four hundred fifty five thousand pounds of cocaine awful lot captain craig. We shorter is in charge of this crew of about hundred forty people. Do you know what the normal path of one of these <hes> these fast boats loaded cocaine would be <hes> emanates from south america and it can go a number of routes right when you <hes> when you have that much geography that you cover these boats we'll take all sorts of evasive route so they can evade law enforcement acids so they're going way out to sea they will you. You know sometimes we're. We're you know thousand miles from land. He says that intercepting the drugs at this point has a direct impact on our border security our our our heartland board really starts at seeing all right because what happens is this is product goes in central america whose cartels and those organizations really stabilized along those areas so much folks migrates to the to the united states. They want a better place to live to stabilize them and then places pressure on herself was they added along in between drug busts. This crew is always at the ready that meets constantly maintaining the bind and body and boat right now. Anything boat sank down every morning. When j davis i joined the coastguard. She didn't realize realized just how much of her job would feel the front lines of the drug war when people tend to ask me you know what it is i do. I usually just tell diva's guns and pretty much sons it up. This crew takes us deep into the belly of this threaten to this extremely secure storage original already stuff to the ceiling with bales of confiscated cocaine the result of about a month's worth of open ocean busts back in the nineties a lot of this movement of contraband came through the caribbean <hes> but they'd come out here to the eastern pacific where i have a bigger playground to to move their illegal illegal gains but this play ground deep in the pacific coast guard says it has the upper hand armed with the latest technology and ammunition uh-huh technology has played a huge role. You know that really gives us an edge on tracking down targets and <hes> you know allowing us to to catch bad guys they all were there tip comes in from one of the coastguards partners flagging potential smuggling vote and so the crew launches its drone to serve as is in the sky and within minutes if precise locates smugglers. It's go time takes just minutes for team of eight to iran. We get is on these guys. We're gonna take down the teams split into two spoiler boats suited up their full throttle thumb bike err on a roller coaster heartbe now your tests but then once you're on on the right here on the ride and in about fifteen minutes the first vote reaches the suspect with their hands up they surrendered three coast coast guardsmen jump on board to take them into custody matt as the second boat collects sales of suspected contraband that were thrown into the ocean during the chase. How important is is it to actually pick up the evidence to charge these folks with with a crime. You're going to need some some sort of evidence right so you need to pick up at least representative sample of what they were tossing the sides. After hours gathering over a dozen heavy bails job isn't done. It got to tested on the spot to confirm. It's indeed cocaine in one case. We take about a ton of dope <hes> off the water. That's about three point five million dollars so that about him on the evidence and the suspects aspect's transfer to the cutter is pretty low level guys. It all depends on you. Never know what you get out at sea so each guy that we interdict could have potential information on someone someone else in the network and the idea is that if you flip the guys that you already bust then you get information that helps you find the next time absolutely it's a big cycle success right so he stopped one guy. You may get some information that leads you to a different. <hes> you know operational case or you may get some information on the leadership of a of a certain criminal network right and that's what's important right despite it claims of success some critics question just how helpful the information gleaned from these types of detainees actually is coastguard officials and and others that i spoke with and federal judge speaking on the bench and a case i reported on said quite clearly. Most of these men are at the very bottom bottom of the ladder in these drug organizations very often. Don't know anything at all about what it is that they're doing reporter. Seth free wessler spent about a year looking into the coastguards coastguards treatment of people in its custody interviewing about two dozen detainees his investigation. I published in two thousand seventeen in the new york times magazine. It was titled coastguards floating guantanamo's these drug interdictions and international waters are can be spectacular and we see these images but what we don't see is what happens after the interception when people are held in really troubling conditions aboard american ships the ships don't have say cells where they would hold detainees instead people are being shackled by an ankle to cable or a peg on the ship itself itself and just held their sometimes given thin mat to sleep on it raises serious questions about the violation of these suspects rights their human rights and their rights under u._s. Law the u._s. coastguard telling a._b._c. news in a statement that all suspects detained on coast guard vessels have regular access to medical treatment personal tunnel hygiene products toilet and shower facilities adequate shelter from the elements and regular meals are cameras were not permitted to film detainees once they were brought on board the cutter but while we were there about thirty detainees were in custody held in a makeshift sill. This open hangar protected it from the sun. This is the most detainees see on board this vessel. We usually have a fair amount. This is a lot of the detainees watched by coast guardsmen twenty four hours a day. We wanna make sure that they're saying he's taking care of that. There needs to take care of at the same time they're in custody. Other handcuffed handcuffed and are not free around the vessel in june of this year. The a._c._l._u. filed a lawsuit against the u._s. Coastguard legend what it calls inhumane treatment treatment of four jamaican fisherman who were detained at sea responding to the allegations the coastguard said in a statement a._b._c. news that it cannot comment on current litigation nation which is being handled by the department of justice however the coastguard treats each person with dignity and respect back on the street takes dozens of crew members to transfer all those confiscated bales from the latest interdiction twenty eighteen in a loan. The coastguard confiscated four hundred and sixty thousand pounds of uncut cocaine which equates to roughly four point one eight billion individual. We'll doses enough to provide a daily dose of cocaine to every person in the united states for thirteen consecutive days. People can't even really fathom until you're out there lugging three thousand pounds of pure cocaine off the boat and a few weeks later back on land in san diego. The bales of cocaine are counted and turned over to the d._a. Where you're looking at here is <music> seven hundred million dollars worth of pure on cut cocaine. This is a result of forty five days a patrol you you pretty amazing when you look at it and for the stratton crew a fleeting moment to reflect on the greater raider vision. That's the best feeling is knowing that these drugs are are going to go on the street doing your part to keep that away from <hes> for people and it's really good thing while work but it's worth it and the acting the community and it's affecting families and knowing that you're her someone.

There were quite a few people that are hard. If someone was out of place the alleged crasher had also been accused of stealing from at least three other weddings we know for sure her that she stole a two hundred dollar gift card and then tickets to disneyland yeah and just like gift cards and cash texas authorities. Authorities are on the hunt for the suspect who could be seen on this surveillance tape allegedly shopping with stolen gift cards. The komal county sheriff's office is offering or reward up to four thousand dollars for any tips what happened to this couple was a crime thinks two memorable performances by vince vaughn. What an owner wilson the term wedding crasher usually describes a much more light hearted cinematic moments and laboratories are ripping a page from the silver silverscreen back in two thousand fourteen beyond say accidentally crashed this couple special day in italy and just a few years later taylor swift surprise these super fans and performing blank space <music> by even staged an entire music video around a day-long marathon crash for their hit single shoulder a few years ago. I decided to get in on the fun to dan and jessica mealy were married here in westchester new york. Would we decided to socked crash their wedding great sports about it. I can request your wedding you know. What is this fascination some have with going where they're not invited. Is it the free food the open bar. That's what one bride and groom wanted to know.

The dance floor drinks in hand practically going out of their way to be noticed otas and now the perfect strangers are permanently part of this newlyweds photo album krista riley took to facebook to try and match a name with the face and the local media turned up the drama. The identity of the wedding crashers has been solved for christa at least it turns out the a wedding crashers themselves noticed they had gone from the hunter to the hunt dead and reached out privately to the bride to apologize christo would not reveal their her name. She says she forgives but with this wedding album. How can she forget. I think it's tacky. I think it's rude because that's somebody special day you watch this guy enters the beautiful tustin ranch golf club in california cops say that he swiped all the cash had gift cards at a wedding reception here. Police police say the suspect was checking to see if the coast was clear then covered the gift box with his jacket to make a quick getaway cops picked him up about a month later and charged him with burglary and grand theft. This pennsylvania guy was also caught after slipping into receptions and ceiling twelve grand and cash gifts use the bride's shoes he finally got an invitation but from a judge who said it's tim- to a minimum of four years and you have to think think about not just your guest but other people who may have access to the wedding venue including staff and vendors. It's always nice to give people the benefit of the doubt but in order to totally take that equation equation off the table we recommend registering online back at the meal buddy spotted their gift box. It was positioned right really experts say it should be behind the couple away from the exit and was security standing nearby cigna over there warnings mornings thirty forty hoping security guards that someone's crashing a wedding.

I don't think we've met yet as for danny and kinsey even though they were robbed more important to focus on the bigger picture we were a little bit upset at first but we're just glad that we got married in there and got hurt and while these newlyweds are more generous than most increasingly the happy occasion seed as a target of opportunity beware for nightline.

They say everyone come just because you're not eastern. You don't understand this when we when people talk and times they only talk in eastern pacific on friday. We make you guys do the math. Yeah you work around ours. You do the math <hes> uh we didn't get. I don't maybe i purposely didn't do an episode because the last time that we didn't have so we're five and two what were the two that we missed on that one tower over there over there my overs i. I pay your own in it. I mean we talked about it. I hate overs and i took them anyways on. I'll never wants taken over. I'll never taken over so hard. My first soccer better the over two two point two five goals zero zero. Draw overs are just. I mean sure they're fun. They're fun root for but fucking never they never feel like it's only an n._f._l. Thing though yeah they do it in the n._f._l. Right really basketball basketball yeah just baseball. Let's stay away yeah and soccer. Maybe probably funny man. We will stay away. Their base does translate that chelsea game yesterday. I'm not taking blame that i got that wrong. I aw chelsea player all preseason any doesn't start. We are well. They're against america the american that's that's just what that's just. What happens sounds like they're against america.

You're betting we're betting on. Your units are out but it's just the way. Let's just say that because there isn't a show the bats are on my action resi. The stats the true good point gubbay. Just there's not a show. We're still putting vets in. You can follow us on my action. Dot app slash digs with an s. Because that's the proper way <hes> mhm <hes> at my action dot com slash todd mccombs yup my action dot app slash bubble gum pino. It's that simple. It's that simple false. Put our picks in every single day today. We'll speak our picks new microphone for you to make it even easier and you get to know why we're taking her. Picks are best bets for today. I'm going. I 'cause i've gone. I i feel like it keeps. I'm going to the cleveland indians. I five plus a half thank you i didn't want to have to make up. It's kind of a double standard. You just don't want to go get your hometown team yeah. I can't do it but i told them what you guys. Were gonna pull that one out of the hat awesome and this is why i'm going to cleveland. Plus is a half. I five police ac and rodriguez. They're very similar pitchers a very similar numbers. They're both hover around between three and mid four ziara. Police acts coming off good start so you kind of kind of even there okay. This is what it was what i was thinking and then cleveland is third versus lefthanded pitching obviously going against the left hand pitcher today. Boston is seven versus right handed pitching so maybe a little edge to the innes. I just think it's going to be tight game so i'm going cleveland plus. The half is giving you the points. <hes> i five anytime you get plus a half and it's only modest twenty <hes>. I'm going to take the indians on that. One as is my best bet of the day can argue against you because that was going to be my best except i was taking the money line. Okay okay similar reasons. I police ex little. He's slow hotter enough all-star break. He's three no two point zero zero e._r._a. Any of the one point six nine era specifically against boston so oh yeah <hes> you know so. We're gonna stick together on that one. We'll stick to i'll go together last cleveland's eight and ten in their last or lost ten as well. I don't know how the red sox favored in cleveland tonight. Yeah that doesn't make a lot of sense there little bit of a new idea. I was just in cleveland. I mean the waters terrible. The air's terrible other than that not a bad city. I guess not a lot of skyline good <unk> kind of actually not a great city <hes>. Maybe that's why weather no favorite. What's your best but my best bet. I'm going to colorado. I liked the diamondbacks plus. A half. I five minus twenty five. Both these pictures steak but merrill kelly stinks a little bit less likely ripple stamp on triple stanford bubble stamping. I am took the words right out. I had this already myself for the same reasons these eater lambert last time out nine earned. I mean he's got a six point eight. Seven guy stinks thanks. Hey pete take a fucking seat. Last seven days twenty-seven last fifteen days nine point six zero last day seven point one ers stink the three three and eight when he starts forget about it. This is going to be a twenty plus. You know run game twenty eight hundred over fourteen are really high arizona's going to win though i mean it's it's the battle go with the less less shitty picture peyser well. I'm glad we're on the same page for <hes> <music> taught any other bets for you tampa bay money line at san diego opposite here too great. You know better pitchers. Yes better pitchers but if you look at it since the all-star break diego casteel has the advantage. I say he's wanna know with a one point nine three era since the all star break so i'm gonna to give a slight edge at tampa bay because casey for san diego since the all-star break is open to with a five point one over twenty six point one innings. It's so damp obey the better team. That's just not great. Sly pitching advantage novacopy when you're by yourself buddy. I was leaning the other way out that one just because i like lucchessi lucchessi at all but i like what taught says there okay any other bet so the only other one i have is the nats getting plus a half. I five at minus thirty. I mean desk l. Fini has been good for the reds. I've liked this year. His last test innings always had seven earned. Fadi isn't that great but the nationals nationals probably could have swept the mets besides doolittle blow in those two games and <hes>. They're just playing good baseball on. I like plus a half at home so the nats are getting plus a half <music> at home. I went the opposite way on that so i don't know how i feel about a gump. I mean the national lost out of their last thirteen at home. They're not not been good there or we're just gonna leave. It often fifty one to six point one zero. You're a guy say my only reasoning is the plaza half at home for a better team. That's my own jazz. I wanna know why where we're gonna go over the ten and a half. I'll take the first five or six six c feeney's decent though i will let me ask especially since the break their number two and number four versus right handed pitching pitching in the last three weeks so not terrible both of them. Tom viruses ryan pitching. Please go fini six point eight one era in his to august starts. It's so not grain fed a he did go six scoreless in his last start but seven point two four in july <hes> but the nats the only re- the nats beat degrom yesterday i mean that's just i'm not taking over city more. I don't know i don't know how to go. I mean i just these sclafani. He's been better man in a night he specifically at night. That's when he's at his best off. Aww right we have a disagreement won't go the play yeah. We just keep it up just to be safe because we lay down the facts in case somebody just yeah actually went to take the action either way so we're no armed so this is what we're going to do. I'm making a fucking team. Call here all right. Here's our partly the three tamer. It's a nice little three team all right. We got the indians plus a half. I five we've got the diamondbacks plus a half i five and then we've got the tampa bay rays moneyline there we go. I mean it was complete. Consensus and i'm not gonna fight that sco fifty. Let's go payoff fifty. Would you three hundred dollars. Hey i'll get three games. That's nice follow do when three i i mean you take all those winnings that we've had you throw fifty on it. We went through. There's no way it doesn't win. <hes> there's no word how on board we all three were with those picks. Three picks couldn't be more on the same page three picks. Let's go. I mean what what else do you want from us. We're about making money this. This is the smartest player imagine not three tumor our smallest ever imagine not what are you gonna lay off that action. No you know what i didn't realize that grandkid trades <hes> really sad for bed and i didn't even realize this him getting plus a half on the diamondbacks. All year long was a beautiful thing yeah well. That's not happening more. The fucking astros have been like minus four hundred minus four forty. It was the highest one here yesterday and they lost after losing twenty three two two or whatever ever all right so those are picked for today. We wish you the best of luck and we will see you on probably do want tomorrow okay so i like. I like the games tomorrow's to undermine him because i think we've road trip wednesday yeah we do. You're right yeah. We do big road trip once we will see you tomorrow. Look good luck good luck good luck. Pay him paid that men his manny.
The First Direct Image of a Black Hole
"This is space time series twenty two at bestowed thirty one for broadcast of the twenty fourth of April twenty nine teen. Coming up on space time, the strongest capture the first ever direct image of a black hole. Scientists determine the planet. Mercury has a solid in core and Israel to try try again following the failure of its Genesis. Luna Landa all that. And more coming up on space time. Welcome to space time. We'd Stewart Gary. The strongest have successfully captured one of the most important pictures in scientific history an actual image of supermassive black hole. The astonishing breakthrough was announced in a series of six papers published in the special issue of the Astro physical journal letters and that a series of coordinated special press conferences, held symbol Tanisha around the globe. Black holes of the most intense gravity worlds the universe regions of infinite density in zero volume where the gravitational police oh strong. Nothing. Not even light can escape stars planets. Gas clouds and other matter are tracked into a black hole, but intense gravity swirling around the black hole in an accretion disk like water going around sink drain material in the creation disc is crushed stretched and ripped apart of the subatomic level releasing vast amounts of energy, which billions of degrees close to the speed of light before eventually passing beyond a point of no return. Turn called the event. Horizon once inside the event in escape velocity becomes greater than the speed of light. And since nothing dribble faster than the speed of light. Nothing not even light can escape black. Oh, here matter is spaghetti fide that falls forever into the singularity a place with the laws of physics time and dimension assigns understands them breaks down, but not all of the material in the creation disc is distant to fall into the black hole. Some of the superheated matter is the flex along powerful magnetic field lines away from the event arising out towards the black hole spin axis where it's exhilarated to relativistic speeds and focused into intense. Superglue jets called quasars which are the brightest objects in the universe shining out like bacon 's in the dark, visible of a thirteen billion light is away small still a mass black holes a form by the death of some of the most massive stars in the universe in powerful core collapse. Nerve explosions or through events such as neutrons damages may well supermassive black holes, which millions to billions of times larger a founded the centers of most if not all galaxies exactly how they formed remains matter of intense debate, the historic image released this month shows a supermassive black hole at the center of an elliptical galaxy known as Messier eighty seven located some fifty three point four nine million light years away in the Furger cluster. This monster black hole has some six point five billion times the mess of the sun by the very nature a black hole cannot be seen. However, the hot accretion disk material in circling it shines brightly and this new image shows the bright orange colored accretion disc surrounding the dacas of black centers a deep hole, which literally reaches outside the universe. Monje? This black center isn't the black hole at self or even the event horizon sa-. Rounding it it simply region where light he spent so much it casts shadow extending out from the event arise in the event. Horizon itself is around two and a half times smaller than the shadow its casting measuring just under forty billion kilometers across. But this shadow of a black hole is the closest that science can come to an image of a black hole itself. This completely duck object from which light cannot escape what is done for the same age is pick up the radiation emitted by paddock was within this accretion disk as school around the black hole before passing beyond the horizon, the resulted image looks like a halo crescent with shadow of the black holes of it arises in the center the halo appearances caused by the immense gravity of the black hole. Bending light into halo around it. One side of the halos. Chris looks brighter than the other because the particles on that side of the equation disk rotating towards the earth so flung towards faster and therefore appear brighter while the particles on the other side of the halo. Chris. A rotating away from our viewpoint and so appear slightly dimmer black holes will I predicted by Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. Although I inside himself was somewhat skeptical as to whether or not they actually existed in real life. Of course, since then astronomers have accumulated overwhelming evidence that these Cozma gravitational wells are out there, including recent detections of gravitational waves Ripley across the cosmos in pace of black holes. Collide, the image was captured in radio wavelength using the event. Horizon radio telescope, very long baseline interferometer. It's a combination of eight separate radio observatory spread across the planet and electronically linked to act as a single giant telescopes big as the earth this allows the telescope to even angular resolution of twenty micro ox seconds at sin to read a newspaper in Sydney or New York from a cafe in Perth Paris. When the survey ships were launched back in two thousand seventeen the event horizon telescope had to. Primary targets one was m eighty seven. The other senators ace town the black hole at the center of Ella Milky Way galaxy okay that some twenty six thousand light years away with a mess of about four point three million sons, the club ration- is still working on producing an image of the milky way's black hole. And when it comes. We'll certainly let you know of role more than two hundred strana MS from twenty countries have been involved in this project. One of the most amazing things about the image. Is that it is so similar to what the computer models predicted a black hole might look like. And what that means is that astronomers current theories and models at that black holes. The physical properties must be reasonably accurate. The plan now is to take all that knowledge to the next level with even more detail in high resolution, we have gone straight to the edge of the event horizon and seeing the point of no return. The past two decades global collaboration of scientists around the earth have been putting together an earth sized telescope with a single purpose to image of black hole. And now we have done so. Right. We have done. Something extraordinary. We've made the first picture of a black hole. If you wanna make a test of the fundamental theories of the universe. You wanna go to the most extreme laboratories in the universe. And a black hole is that this is an extraordinary moment and science. It's the best verification that we have that black holes aren't just theoretical scribblings on a blackboard musings of theoretical physicists. But real entities, roaming, the universe. We all understand from a mathematical point of view that black holes exist, but to actually see something is a very visceral experience, and I think important for science and also for us to believe in. It's the black hole that we've emerged is m eighty seven. This is the sa- black hole that's six and a half billion times as massive as our son, and it sits in the center of a galaxy a hundred times larger than our Milky Way which itself lives at the. The center of a cluster thousands of gallons Virgo they are quite literally gravity Runamuck, a key window into one of the least understood and yet most I'm the present forces that we're all faced with gravity. This first time that we're able to study in detail the stage that gravity sets astronomical phenomena. I think we've been extremely lucky I expected that we have to work for years and years too, many vacation until we get a finally midge. And then we look at first source, and we see that ring see Ventura Hisen, and we see that shadow that dark region, and, you know, immediately they're looking at an event, or is that a black hole from all sides at once in this. This thing we see at a region where time stops is very different part of the universe. With the for the very first time the most striking feature in these images is the footprints of gravity. This ring like feature with a central dark, depression, the shadow of the black hole that region where the photons that we see would have had to have come from below the horizon now therefore apps and mazing to be able to work on data which have never been pained before to have highest resolution of sedation. This is Nick time for the scientists and his life to work on this kind of data so to work to see into area, which well where we didn't have any inflammation before this. I image doesn't represent the end of an endeavor rather the beginning of an era in which we have a new key window onto how gravity behaves at how it shapes our universe. The future of this project is amazing. Now, we wanna make the first movie. Now, we want to understand how space-time rotates around the black hole. We'll do that by putting more telescopes around the world to make our virtual lens. Even better it signals, the beginning this new era in which we can study the life and times of these extrordinary objects in a way that was simply impossible before one of the most uplifting things for me is the team that we've built and the fact that we're doing something that people have told us was impossible. And when you at the end of the day, do something that people tell you you can't do it's an incredible feeling. And I think the whole team is very very proud people -ccomplish something like this is not just for us for every. And they you heard the voices of every broddrick from the Perry mater institute and the university of Waterloo shepherd Doman from the habits Mazzoni center for physics Sarah McCaw from the university of Amsterdam Hino foul from red bound university in the Netherlands and silky blitzen. From the Max Planck institute. This is space time. I'm Stewart Gary. China's determine that the planet. Mercury has a solid metallic in court similar in size to the planet earth, the findings reported in the journal Jeff is over such as helps us John them better understand macrey while at the same time offering clues about how the solar system formed and how rookie terrestial planets of fall of time. Astronomers have long known that the earth and mercury both have metallic coz, Leica makers Atta courts, composed of liquid metal for the veni Bain hints that make infamous course, solid now in a new study. Scientists have reported evidence that make these is indeed solid that it's very nearly the same size as the earth solid in a core. Some scientists have compared victory to a cannonball because it's middle coal shows. Nearly eighty five percent of the planet's entire volume now this lodge core. Huge by comparison to all the other rocky planets in our solar system has long been one of the most intriguing mysteries about mercury. But scientists also wanted with mercury might have a solid in a Koi studies lead, author assistant, professor antenna agenda from the sappy ends at university of Rome says Mickey he's in a chorus still active bat Macree's interior has cooled more rapidly than the earth. And that may help scientists predict exactly how the magnetic field will change as out planets coal cools to figure out what make Risco is made of genuine colleagues head to get figuratively. Felli close to this subject to do this. The Chaim used several observations from this as messenger spacecraft in order to probe mic interior mission jer into orbit around mercury back in March twenty seven spending four years observing the nearest planet to the sun until it was running low on feel and said deliberately crashed into the planet surface in April. Twenty fifteen the authors will looking most importantly at the planet spin and gravity. The scientist used radio ups evasions for messenger to determine mic Reese, gravitational numbers that he's areas of low. Increases or decreases in mash and the location of the planets rotational axis, which allow them to stand orientation of the planet. Mercury spins much more slowly than the earth with an average make every day last thing some fifty eighth days. Scientists often use tiny variations in the way object spins to reveal clues about its internal structure in two thousand seven raider observations from earth revealed smoke shifts or lie brations in mercury spin. And that prove that some of the planet school must be liquid molten metal. But the survey ships of the spin rate alone, what enough to give a clear measurement of what the coal would be like that Kip scientist wondering whether or not they could be a solid core. Looking Nayef to Obama that question the authors examined mercury's, gravity because that would tell them about the planet's internal density structure. That's what message messenger came in as mission job at mercury over the course of its mission and got closer and closer to the surface. Scientists recorded how the spacecraft. Accelerated under the influence of the planet's gravity you see the density structure of the planet can create subtle changes in the spacecraft's orbit. That's what we're looking for as the mission came to an end messenger was flying just two hundred kilometers above the planet surface and during its final year of perations that went down to just one hundred kilometers. And it was those final out achieve all bits, which provided the best that yet allowing authors to make the most accurate measurements about the internal structure of mercury Genova and colleagues ran the message data into a sophisticated computer model this allow them to just pramatist and figure out exactly what the internal composition of Mary must be like in order to match the way the planet spinning and the where the spacecraft was celebrating around it. The results showed that for the best match. Macree Nate's the have allowed solid in a core. They estimated that the solid on in a core will be some two thousand kilometers wide making a bad half of Mickey's entire four thousand kilometer wide core now by contrast the earth in the court. Two thousand four hundred kilometers across that's any a little more than a third of our planet's entire core. You'll listen to space time, I'm Stewart, Gary. Okay. Tom to take a break from our show.

It's called understanding the universe an introduction to astronomy. And it's a great way to learn the fundamentals of this important science from the correspondence we receive here at space time. Now, a lot of you have kids would just starting out. The virgin discovery in the strana me, and I know this will be a great cost to stimulate their interest. That's because Alexey so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and he's presentation you can't help being spied. And you know, what I'm going to bet on Philly jealous. I wish I had access to this sort.

You'll listening to Spain's time with Stewart Gary. European Space Agency's next exit planet mission to study strange worlds orbiting distant stars to step closer to launch with a spacecraft now fully assembled and tested. The counteracting exoplanet satellite chips is now finally left the clean room in Switzerland. And he's now in Madrid for further launch preparations job see slated to fly during a launch window in October November this year aboard Soyuz STB rocket from the European Space Agency's spaceport in French Jonah, the three and a half year mission will study the formation of planets using specialized telescope mad on a standard small satellite platform flying in a sun synchronous at an altitude of around seven hundred kilometers chips will examine hundreds of known transiting except planets orbiting both nearby stars. And more distant bright ones. It'll make the dip in light caused by planet as that planet passes in front of its host star sink from the satellite this will allow scientists to accurately may. The radius of exit planets for which ground base spectroscopy observations of already given reasonably good mass estimates knowing both the mass and size of an excerpt planet, let scientists the Tim and the planets density, and thus estimates journal composition, whether it's terrestrial planet, like the earth or Waterworld, maybe guest giant this will allow scientists to learn more about the strange words over in distant stars chip should be especially good for spotting. Shallow transits and for determining accurate radio for next planets in these super connection mass range, which includes objects between one and six th radii the three hundred kilograms space craft was built by the university of Bern and uses solar panels that also act Pat of sun, providing sixty watts continuous power for its instruments, which will be downloading laced one point two bits of data every day. This progress report on the chips mission comes from a television, hundreds of known planets orbiting stars outside all solar system will soon. Be under scrutiny by space telescope, cooled kelps a characterizing Exo planet satellite. And it scientists want answers to a number of questions, we want to know what these planets are made of we want to know how what they are. We want to know they're very compositions talk show. We want to know surface temperature. We want to know is water there and eventually this life now in Madrid for further launch preparations that tennis cope houses to mirrors a CCD detectable camera and a path to reduce stray night camps will measure the minute dip in light from a stall when a planet transits across it. The size of the dip provides direct measure of the ratio of the size of the planet and the star this combined with a knowledge of the size of the star gifts the planet size radial velocity, measurements from ground observatories will supply its muss. When you. Cover the Muslim the radios, you call two very important things about an option because you can get what we call the mean density after that. And that can give you a lot of information about the composition of a planet. For example, it can immediately tell you whether the planet is mainly form of gas or if it's a rookie planet. The challenge was to build an extremely accurate and stable telescope the block signals caused by stray night from its electronics and instruments. The telescope will be kept minus ten degrees c and the detector at minus fourteen grease to reduce signal noise. What makes kipps unique? It's the only follow. So we are not aiming discovering new planet. We're just aiming at going back to the ones we know and measure, this is either for the first time because it hasn't been measured yet or improve the measure. That have been done in the past either from the ground or from space telescope with precision the camp science team is currently selecting the best target exit planets for further study of the scientists will also be invited to submit proposals to use the space telescope then. Once science mission is original a new era of discovery can begin ships. Principal investigator villi bench and chips instrument. Scientists Andrea forty year from the university of Bern and assigned to I'm Stewart, Gary you're listening to space time. Well, despite much hope the privacy is rarely bid to land a spacecraft on the surface of the moon has failed. Like the proverbial Phoenix rising from the ashes supporters from around the world of now rallied around the company space, I'll determine the try gain the tragic end for the dream came on the bear sheet or Genesis spacecraft's main engine suddenly cut out just one hundred forty nine maters above the lunar surface following an apparent communications, which mission managers scrambled to restart the engine. But by then it was too late and the five hundred eighty five kilogram probe crashed into the grey dusty lunar soil spacecraft loons just over six weeks earlier aboard a SpaceX falcon nine rocket on a mission to make Israel owner the fourth nation on earth after the Soviet Union. The United States and China to successfully land on the lunar surface mission managers use the precious called orbital raising to gradually increase the spacecraft's opened around the earth until it's large enough to also encompass the moon using this. The raising method instead of a direct Luna transferred. Maneuver has become the preferred way of rich the moon for budding missions because it uses less fuel. But it takes about seven weeks rather than just the three days of direct flight on April fourth following a journey of some six and a half million kilometers spacecraft was captured by the moon's gravity and began. Opening the moon in preparation for the final liquids mission down to the lunar surface, its final thirty two second orbital burn on April tenth maneuver, the spacecraft into elliptical orbit taking it within fifteen to seventy kilometers of the moons desolate surface. It's filed a sent down into the sea of serenity six hundred seventy four kilometre what basaltic lava plain should've gone smoothly. Instead communications was lost. The main engine suddenly cut out and the space craft crashed into the surface had it said the mission would have studied the moon's magnetic field and place, the lace navigation richer afflict onto the surface for NASA as well as it scientific payload space. Craft was also carrying a digital time capsule with over thirty million pages of data and billions of documents from around the world included with dictionaries and encyclopedia's, including a full copy of the English language. Wikipedia a copy of the Christian bible, examples of fine, literature and artworks children's drawings. They memories of holocaust survivor. Israel's national anthem that Tikva and he's really flag and a copy of these ready declaration of independence space. I'll chairman Mars con says he weren't let the drain go. He's one of the many philanthropist joining forces and offering to fund a second private attempt by space. I'll tell spacecraft on the moon in the light of older support that I've got from all over the world, and the wonderful MRs of support and encouragement that excitement I've decided that we're gonna actually build a new space growth, we're gonna put it on the moon, and we're going to complete the mission tomorrow morning. First thing we have a toss fourth. To begin a sit down and plan the project and begin the work. Thank you and good luck to all of us. X Mars county, chairman of space IOL, and this is space time. I'm Stewart Gary. And time that take a brief look at some of the other stories making news incites this week with science report in a major medical breakthrough. Scientists the Tel Aviv university of printed the woods, I three D Vasteras engineered heart using patients and stem cells and pilot materials, they findings reported in the journal advanced science represents the first time anyone anyway has successfully engineered and printed anytime human heart replete with cells blood vessels, ventricles chambers. The three day hot was small the size of rabbits hot. But the researchers say logic human hearts will use the exact same technology until now scientists in regenerative medicine of ain't been successful in printing relatively simple tissues without blood vessels for this research, above she a fetid tissue was taken from the patient the cellular at ACLU materials of tissue within separated while the sills will reprogram through completely potent stem cells the extra cellular matrix, three dimensional network of. Extra cellular macromolecules such as collagen glass of proteins will precious into a personalized hydrogel which served as the printing ink after being mixed with a high to Joe Sills were officiate differentiated into cardiac into field sales to create patient specific immune compatible, cardiac patches, lead vessels, subsequently any tie. Hot. Well, if you're planning on taking us holiday getting in bit of skiing spits to do it now while you still can see new research ones that some four thousand European alpine glaciers will lose at least half. There is by twenty fifty the findings reported in the journal. The Christ fear are amid west of what's expected, even a few minutes would dramatically cut carbon dioxide emissions immediately. Scientists say what happens after twenty fifty depends on how much people change the climate even under a limited woman scenario Europe's glaciers would still lose about two thirds of their is well under strong global warming. The outs we'll be almost completely is free by twenty one hundred now while we're talking about the weather Nashes says L, Nina which began forming late last year as now finally matured, and he's now fully entrenched across the Pacific Ocean woman than average service temperatures brought about by El Nino enhanced conviction forming, clouds and storms in the eastern Pacific resulting in distinctive changes. In rainfall patents across the type basin. That means generally, dry weather across Australia and the western Pacific will the American eastern Pacific experience above average rainfall. However, interestingly enough recent estimates of monthly average rainfall and corresponding rainfall anomalies have shown heavy rain and above average rainfall located across the Equatorial central Pacific, not the eastern Pacific. That's what's known as anaemia, but Dokie Japanese for a similar, but different thing where an enhanced sea-surface temperatures and rainfall occurred near the international dateline rather than Peru. A human family tree is growing another branch with the discovery of a previously unknown hominem species in the cave on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, burns and teeth from at least two adults and a child have been found suggesting the nearly fan. Haman dating back. Some fifty thousand years was small the average month human and had curved digits. Meaning it must have been a tip to climbing. Trees paleontologists say that had in faith, I remark ably Australopithecus seen like also pithy scenes last walked on earth in Africa that two million years ago, they considered to be the ancestor of all the home group, which includes a sapiens modern humans penny tallest involved in the dig including scientists from the astray National University and Griffith university of named a new species. Homo lose on insists in two thousand and four another group announced the discovery of different ancient human species, homo flurry insis Wilson that it's the hobbit on the Indonesian island of flurries and new study warns.

So not only should you. Keep your pet. Kitty cat inside to protect the local wildlife by you'll also be protecting Fluffy's. Well, Australia's therapeutic goods administration has flagged a number of changes to its list of claims, which promote is a little tentative medicine can make it 'bout products. However is Tim Mendham from strand skeptics points out the has continued to ignore many more blatantly unsupported and see their scientific. What you can have on the label of your medical product saying what it works with this will cure, headaches or trade head. That's what they're trying to put a draft least of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of these indications that when nominated boy a whole range of people, including the traditional Chinese medicine people and the IM vedic is the Indian traditional medicine people and some of the things that for where to put Molly ludicrous, Dallas gang release exterior. That's really sixty year. This inhibit water, whatever that means all these very strange things, the very vague descriptors in from a medical point of view. They really mean nothing. That's exactly what we're talking about. Especially with a lot of these Chinese medicine things as I talking Bank terms of treatment about vikes conditions, and I ended it I could apply to anything common is the middle Boone. I'm blocked Meridian's suit the flow of stomach Chee, replenish essence, just Nelson's prices. I certainly I'm sitting medicine, and that's what the therapy administration spice to be a bad. And they list was derided when it came out in two thousand seventeen everyone said, you gotta be kidding. This stuff is nonsense near including as possible as as endorsed treatments for conditions that the treatments of like conditions. I have had a revision of it just recently, and I have deleted seven of them because they say they're not supported leaving seventy one eighty nine hundred thirty five traditional Chinese one. So they handle nonsense on this list that people can claim on the lives of their products at the TGI used basically walking away from the TV, especially the guardian all what's a reliable product. I'm not a reliable product service. If I was at the, touch, and it's a constant battle with TI that you think please do your job please show that some of this stuff is probably what is it about the few too. Good administration. Is it just they tried to promote small business to such an extent that they're living, proper, medical and drug standards. Disappear. There say she is with L. I'm not saying this is necessarily influencing what they do, but they paid for by the industry. Yeah. If you want to develop a conspiracy theory, which I did not like conspiracy theories specifically there's a limitation. They on money. The government funding is sort of have been through withdrawing I've repeated use they were they ever lying on on the industry or some them. Their job is to face advertising lodge to make sure that my ones that are going either board and people do all the time they making unreasonable clients trouble is the guy is really underresourced eyesight themselves, and they were trying to get people to say, it's clients on medicine some medical products, and they're different source at the TI covers almost impossible the supplies that there. I'm lucky to be checked by the change. That's probably take ten percents. I'll put money out they when they chick that ten percent of product. So they ask them, where's the plank funded about ninety percent done have any? So what happens is the person who supplying that would just to go to study game. So I mean, the TGI really does not investigate by any means the bus number of products that are out there people complain to it, and I very slow to respond, or I very dismissive of complaints that might about the products that the TI and doses were headed on at least. And also they have the time to mend them from a straight skeptics. You're listening to space time.
