The danger of herd immunity in solving the COVID-19 problem

"Herd immunity, and it's a concept some leaders and scientists have considered when it comes to responding to this pandemic. NPR's Jeff Broomfield reports on what exactly this idea is and why it presents troubles. The thinking goes like this. Sooner or later, the pandemic cast stand and Debbie shredder gets it like everyone wants a way out psychologically right, because no one's ever coped with something of this scale, and it's not like a crisis like a hurricane or 9 11 where it's like, time bound or geographically bound. This is like everyone everywhere for indefinitely right now appeals to people, right? Treaters of researcher at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in the UK, and it turns out there is a theoretical way it could end. If enough people get sick and recover and they become immune to the corona virus. Then the pandemic fizzles. Those who haven't gotten it yet are safe. The technical name for this is herd immunity in its purest form. It's like Darwinian self selection, right? We let the virus go. Whoever is going to die, I will die. That's life and then whoever makes it we'll have hopefully some form of immunity. Several governments tried with the idea of the beginning of the pandemic, including the U. K, But in the end, most decided it would cost too many lives. There was one exception Sweden. They kept businesses open and let people make their own choices. At one point, Swedish officials said Stockholm would returned immunity by the end of May, but they have not reached it by the end of May. They just lost a lot of lives and also took an economic it shredder says. Herd immunity works as a math problem, but at an individual level Swedes stayed home. People don't want to catch Cove it nobody wants to be part of the herd to stay that way. But could nations eventually reach herd immunity more slowly? Probably not, says Jeffrey Shaymen of Columbia University. So example, I like to think about it. South Korea. They're getting 50 cases a day right now. They will hold on for another 1000 days, which is almost three years that have 50,000 cases, which is 30.1% of their population. Most experts think herd immunity take somewhere between 50 to 80% of the population, even in the U. S. Even it's 60,000 cases a day. It'll take at least into 2021 possibly years more to reach those levels. And there's another looming problem. People may be able to get the Corona virus more than once, shame and has studied other Corona viruses that cause common colds, and he found people could be re infected. Some of them were 48 weeks separated from the previous infection, which is rapid and that might have been a relapse. But others we clearly know are different. They were 8 to 11 months apart. Greta Bauer is an epidemiologist at Western University in Ontario, she says this fall and winter maybe the time we find out about re infections, and if Covitz survivors get even mildly sick, the second time around Corona virus will keep circulating. If that were the situation, then there's no potential to develop a level of herd immunity sufficient to stop the infection. I corresponded with 16 different scientists, and almost all believed that achieving herd immunity as a practical matter was virtually impossible. Without a vaccine with the vaccine. It will be a lot easier to control the virus, but it will likely still exist in pockets around the world. So what's going to happen again? Researcher devilish reader I think it's going to be with us play forever. At this point, I think I mean at a global scale, it's going to be with us, and it's how we decide to live with it. There are ways to live with it. Test the sick, isolate them until they're better and everybody where a mask and keep their distance.

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?

"The. World is made up of about ninety percent of right handed people and ten percents, left-handed people folks who are truly ambidextrous, those who use their right and left hand equally well make up a negligible sliver of the population, but is ambidextrous, inherited or learned, and if learned, can it be learned as an adult? We spoke of email with Dr Sebastian. Auckland Berg a professor of psychology at Ruhr University and BOCOM Germany. He said a little bit of both. And this is determined by about twenty five percent, genetic factors and seventy five percent, non genetic factors like environmental influences. It clearly runs families, so it is somewhat inherited, but learning might also affect it I think amdex steady for a specific task. like hitting a tennis ball with the racket is possible, but full embiid extremity for all tasks is unlikely. Handedness being the skill in comfort, a person feels using one hand, or the other is considered a complex genetic trait, and since genes are involved hand, preference develops before a person's even born, but like other complex traits handedness including ambiguity extremity doesn't have a simple pattern of inheritance. Yes there is a greater chance. The children of left-handed parents will also be lefthanded than righties, but remember the chance of being a lefty is just ten percent overall, so most children have lefties are still right handed. An identical twins are more likely than non identical twins to both be either right or left handed, but many of both types do have opposite hand preferences, and that's before we even talk about whether a child's handedness is allowed to develop naturally or whether parents and teachers interfere. Hand dominance typically develops around age three and fully developed by age four to five, but it can be influenced by insisting a child uses their other hand, or by happenstance for example when he was four years old, former major league baseball pitcher Billy Wagner broke his right elbow and spent the summer in a cast. In his memoir Wachner victory recalls being a natural righty at the time and already mad for baseball, but for the next six weeks he threw only left-handed when the cast came off, he was in for a surprise when he tried throwing with his right, the ball went nowhere had lost not a strength of coordination for throwing with his right arm and gained it in his left. Wagner wrote. I was a natural righty then and still am I do everything right handed eat told tools right start lawnmower everything except pitch. Wagner wouldn't be considered ambidextrous though he's certainly managed to have an incredibly successful career working with his non dominant hand. Baseball is full of players who switch hit meaning. They hit equally well from either the left or right side, and are comfortable, facing left or right handed pitchers, some like hall of Famers, Eddie Murray Mickey Mantle and Chipper Jones were successful, but they like. Wagner weren't truly ambidextrous. Which is something? That's very difficult to do, but why the? Lindburg said headedness is something that is generated in the brain, not the hands as such. The half the brain contra lateral to the hand is better in controlling fine motor movements for example, the left brain hemisphere in right handers. The strength of this preference varies between individuals. Some people have a very strong preference for one hand, and resulting from that greater issue in using the other for specific tasks, so it's the brain that sets the barrier. But if the brains, that's the barrier. The brain can also remove it. Take the case of Billy McLaughlin. McLaughlin is an award winning guitarist known for a unique style of play, placing both hands on the Fredbord, Originally predominantly a right handed guitar player, but in the late nineteen nineties despite having a record at number seven on the billboard. He was struggling with control problems. He was missing notes when he played an experienced muscle spasms to the point that he was unable to perform. Finally in two thousand one McLaughlin was diagnosed with focal Dystonia, a movement disorder, causing muscles to contract involuntarily, though advised to find another career McLaughlin opted to teach himself to play left handed and he succeeded. So this begs the question. Can we teach ourselves to become ambidextrous as adults? A two thousand seven study found that as we age, we actually become more ambidextrous without even trying in part because the hands that we use more loses. Its dominance of the study was small. It included sixty participants all strongly right handed according to the Edinburgh handedness inventory, the participants completed various computerized dexterity tests, which included line tracing and aiming task and tapping the youngest group average age, twenty five years performed all the skills proficiently using their right hand, the Middle Age participants average age fifty years performed well using either hand on the gaming task while the two oldest groups average ages, seventy and eighty years performed just as well using either hand on all tasks except one. However overall performance appeared to decline with increasing age especially for the participants dominant hand, leading researchers to believe that quote, we become more ambidextrous as we get older because dominant hand loses its superior dexterity, and becomes more like are weaker hand. Some people have wondered whether attempting to become ambidextrous could strengthen the brain and potentially slow or fight the effects of aging or dementia Allen Berg said that's a myth, while it is true in general that brain training is a good idea when aging research has shown that what at strengthened is what is trained, so if I trained to write with my non dominant hand, this would affect the motor brain areas of the contra lateral half the brain, but not the areas involved in memory. Thus a specific memory training would make more sense in aging and dementia.

Keeping Your Dream Alive with Drew Holcomb

"Today or conversation is with music city icon drew holcomb. And you may remember that. We talked to drew's manager Paul Steal a few weeks ago. But here's the thing you need to know about drew. He absolutely refuses to be limited by other people's labels yes? He's a killer singer and songwriter. And believe me you're GONNA WANNA listen to the end of this episode. But he's used that foundation of singing and songwriting to lay a platform for becoming an entrepreneur. An investor a business owner. The guys creative he's disciplined. He's an absolute anomaly. But all of these different roles and qualities they've come together to make for a pretty remarkable and outrageous life but as you will hear his path toward becoming one of Americana Music Most beloved and authentic figures. It was one that actually started over twenty years ago and it was birthed out of a tragedy. I played music all throughout high school. I was your classic like Gout. The Guitar Planning Life and Learning Songs and having fun just with friends. I didn't write a song until I was a junior in college. I went to a personal tragedy the summer after my junior year of high school at a younger brother special needs who passed away very unexpectedly. I was actually out of the country and music was sort of thing. Kinda got me through it so really for me. Music was this personal sort of healing anchor. Anchor exactly I've no thoughts of doing it professionally especially talented at that time. I don't think so. No no not really I mean I was. I was fine You know I always had a very sort of ernest. Hard-working like plow through it. Sort of ethic involved in scouts and was in the student body organization. And all the things you know at school. I Love School. I always student so I went to school to college with the intent of going to graduate school to study. History on my goal is to write books and be a history professor so that was the dream now somewhere along the way. My junior decided to go study abroad and I studied in Edinburgh Scotland and I didn't really know anybody so I took my guitar with me. You know that was like my main hobby was playing guitar and I just started writing songs like at night. I'd finish my work or whatever three roommates. A Frenchman Franck Thomas the German Dave the Canadian and drew the American. That sounds like the makings of a killer ban. Yes that's right court. What are you studying in? Scotland studying church history so studying sort of like a variety of classes but Studying sort of fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Scotland. Studying the early sort of early Roman church so sort of. Constantine through you know the the break-up of the Roman Empire so just like nerdy stuck just had your guitar with you the whole yet. I wasn't writing songs about any of that stuff. I mean it was informing you know in a way but now I just started writing songs and really. It was diving into that pain because what I knew I was GONNA do. I started writing songs because my senior project at. Ut was an oral history about my brother. So I was interviewing fifty to eighty people. Nurses doctors friends teachers cousins. Who grew up around him in his life. And I was trying to figure out why this like kid. With Spina Bifida made such an impact when he his funeral was like twenty five hundred on my word so I was just personally curious and also just thought it was a great way to sort of put this history stuff to work to do this oral history and so part of that was started writing songs about that. Sorta as a sideline and extending come home from Scotland and start my senior year. My friends start playing songs for my friends. They're like Ayman is a pretty good. You should maybe give this a go so I started looking some gigs in Knoxville. Like at bars and I'd play covers and originals. Invite my friends out and this mentor of mine. Basically told me so. Hey man graduate. School can wait a year to like. It's not going anywhere much to take a break. Do this music thing get a job. See what happens. And that was in the fall. Two Thousand and three and here we are in two thousand twenty. Golly that's crazy so when you started doing it and you were playing in those bars. You couldn't have been making much planning those bars. No it's probably pretty scrappy beginnings for a while. I would assume yeah really four or five years of absolute scrap absolute scrap. Was that whole time where you think to yourself. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life or were you just filling time. During that season I was enjoying sort of the process of seeing the country of convincing by then friend to date me and Mary me I was enjoying the freedom I really found a lot of freedom and being my own boss that was like also and I was like well. That's pretty cool. And then also the same time I was sort of looking at the writing on the wall of the other dream going man. It's like really hard to get a real decent job at university especially as sort of a you know another southern white male just like there's a lot of those PhD's in history saturated market. So I just honestly the part of it I was really loving the business and I was finding satisfaction in putting together the band and the recording process and learning I was growing. I felt like you know all these things. I didn't understand about music. I mean as a kid you get a record and you think Oh. These people just got no room. They've set up. Some microphones push record. And that's what you hear and then you realize that. Oh It's actually this incredibly long and arduous process but very satisfying process and so I found myself enjoying it and just kept going based on my dad. You know I'm just GonNa keep doing this until it stops growing and it didn't. You're still. Here is your idol dip. It was your dad. Supportive or your parents supportive as you were kind of pursuing this dream very supportive. My Dad always jokes. He says he has all these friends that tell him like. Why did you let drew do this? And he's like I let drew do anything you know. He's twenty one years. Old graduated from College Emmy debt which was Nice Ozone. Scholarship makes a big difference in your twenty two years old about. Can you pursue this dream? Well I have all this debt and I gotta get a certain amount of money job or can I like try to do something independently with it of hamstrings you? So I didn't have any deaths and my dad basically told me like. Hey Man if you're gonNa work hard at this your mom and I are in your corner like let's go for it and actually took me guitar shop and bought me like the nicest guitar he could afford and said like this is our send you on your way thing you know. Wow so very supportive stuff had other people say like I wanted your parents. Let you do this crazy thing. Let me amount of adult. Yeah that's right. You don't have to have your parents permission but it sure helps. Psychologically I think to have people that believe in you that in your corner day deal but also. They weren't covering like they weren't paying for you to do they work. They work funding your dream. But they were supporting your. Yeah but I gave me alone ten grand and make my first record but it was expected to be paid back. And did you pay of course? I figured you're probably not still in the payment plan. No I read this in. I think it was rolling stone. That wrote it. It said while working at a Memphis studio in the early two thousands holcomb started playing small bars on weekends and eventually found himself zigzagging across the south in old Volvo Wagon and putting nearly three hundred thousand miles on the car and five years first of all. Is that true very true? John Actually totaled at around two hundred and forty thousand miles and took it around mechanic and he he made it drivable not put another ninety thousand miles on it. That's insane you're going all over and then it says initially. He says he was barely making ends. Meet playing at the most random coffee houses and community college. Lunch hours anywhere. That would give me a little scratch to play my songs. So that's a pretty accurate representation. Those first few yeah definitely and you know some of those college. Gigs were literally community colleges noon and they had these entertainment budgets that they had dispensed they bring you in. I'd bring my own P. A. And severe that set it up in the corner at start playing and literally a third of the room when they realized the somebody was sort of interrupting their lunch would put their headphones on to listen to their music. While I'm playing in the corner so you had to have pretty thick skin letting you know their checks cashed and that's how I was able to afford to keep going so it was complete survival. Did you have moments where you were just like? What am I doing at least two or three times an hour? When I was playing shows seriously though you know sometimes about halfway through that period is when I got married. Ellie was a schoolteacher and then after a year of teaching administered go on. The road means so really my last year of doing a lot of those colleges she was with me and that was so much more fun because we were just getting the car and just laugh at how terrible the experience was you know like. I said they were the gigs paid and that was the right around the time we started having some success with songs on TV and film. This song live forever came out which did really well On. Tv show. Parenthood was the season. Finale montage moment and we got paid enough to get a van and we started getting asked to go on tour other singer. Songwriters. Dave Barnes and Marvis. Are these sort of smaller. You Know Club. Things were also starting to really make real fans and then it became. Maybe I want to do this for the rest of my life. Real to that point it was like this is a big.

5 Cathedrals

"On this episode of five minutes in Church history. We are going on quite the journey. Let's explore five cathedrals in Europe ready. Well we'll start in Florence at the Santa Maria del Flora or the Duomo di Ferenza as Tian's would call it. This cathedral was started in twelve ninety six. It was finished in fourteen thirty six and one of the final structures that was put into place for this Cathedral. Was the famous dome. It was designed and built by Brunelleschi. Who had studied geometry and physics but for much of it by his own account. He relied on his own intuition. And well it worked The Dome was built in. It still lasts. It's made of brick. It has its white ribs in its terra cotta tiles and it serves as such a great backdrop for so many spy movies. So I'm sure you've seen it or the site of that Cathedral. There and Florence goes all the way back to a church that was likely dedicated in three ninety-three by none other than ambrose of Milan and that's the cathedral at Florence. Well let's keep moving. We'll go to Paris and to Notre Dame in two thousand nineteen. It was all over the news. Of course because of that fire it will take millions to rebuild and it will take many years to it as restored. It was first built back in eleven sixty three it epitomizes that ribbed vault and flying buttress style those cathedral structures that are so crucial. It was the site of a temple to Jupiter and the early Roman days and then it was a church and then it was a cathedral in seventeen ninety three. This is the time of the French Revolution. It was rededicated no longer as a church but as the cult of reason and all of the statues to marry were replaced and they were replaced by Statues Lady Liberty Well. It stood that way for many decades and then along came a novel. Victor Hugo's the hunchback of Notre Dame in eighteen thirty one and when that novelist published drew attention to the cathedral and its restoration so Paris. Well let's travel a little north and let's go up the Rhine River and let's go to Cologne. Germany and Statistics abound about this cathedral in Cologne. Germany are you ready? It is the tallest twin spires church in the world. It is the second tallest church in Europe and it is the third tallest church in the world. Those twin spires reached five hundred sixteen feet. Construction began in twelve sixty four. Here's a statistic for you. It has one hundred eighty five thousand square feet of space. This is a huge building. It was so huge that the allied bombers use those twin spires as a landmark further bombing raids during World War Two. The cathedral survived it. Took some hits but it survived in. It stood in a pile of rubble that was the city of Cologne. If you go there today you can climb all the way up to the top for viewing platform. If you're willing to climb five hundred and thirty three stone steps you can also hear. It's eleven massive bells. The largest of those bells weighs twenty four tons. Well let's cross the English Channel and we'll go over to London to Westminster Abbey. Westminster Abbey has a number of people buried in it and the number of people memorialized in it. Over three thousand people have plaques inside Westminster Abbey and many of them are actually buried there. Isaac Newton the poet Robert Browning kings and Queens and princesses and princes and of course inside Westminster Abbey in Jerusalem chamber in the sixteen forties. We have the writings of the Westminster standards. Well let's reach north a little bit. We've gone from Florence to Paris to Cologne to London. Let's go to Edinburgh to Saint Giles. Cathedral it dates back to eleven twenty four. But it's glorious. Moment came in the sixteenth century. It was the seat of the Scottish reformation in fifteen fifty nine. John Knox was installed as minister at Saint Giles. What a great story. What a great story. All of these cathedrals have to

Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland

"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland. So they would know if there were storms like that actually occurring at that time. Yeah and like you said they were all very experienced. They were stationed in a brand New Light House. That I'm sure the lighthouse still standing to this

Flat Earthers: What They Believe and Why

"This is scientific. American science talk posted on March. Twenty seven twenty twenty. I'm Steve Mirsky. I'm going to let my guest introduce himself in a moment because he does a better job than I could. Midway through the following discussion. We'll take a break for a short segment sponsored by the Calveley prize with Caltech Planetary Astronomer. Michael Brown who has done groundbreaking work though solar system breaking work on the Kuyper belt and its largest members. His segment is not unrelated to what will be talking about now. It's not about corona virus. You'll find some parallels to how some people are reacting to corona virus. Buckle up so I'm Michael Marshall and I'm the project director of the good thinking society which is a charity based in the UK the whole purpose charities to promote science to challenge pseudoscience. So we'll do work Ford Science Education and then another PA the work that we do. The bulk of my work is to find ideas. That aren't backed by evidence and find people who are promoting those ideas find people who are buying into those ideas and to explore them and figure out if anything can be done to prevent people being confused by them Hound by the misled by them and those kinds of things. So I spent a lot of time looking at things like alternative cancer kills and the people who promote those and alternative medicine spent a lot my time going to see people who say they can talk dead. Oku can do faith healing and then another part of my time is spent token people who believe in unusual ideas and kind of proponents. And that's how I came across the flat. Earth world is through my slightly odd a hobby at the time before I was working. Fulltime as as a skeptic is a hobby of mine to be in rooms filled if he who disagree with me to just understand what brings people to ideas that. I would look at and say well. This can't be true. These kind of fringe and extreme and unusual beliefs. What brings people to believe them? And what what? What kind of path leave people there will? Evidence supports supports that position in their minds. And how do they engage with the world with that worldview and try and have conversations? Podcast where I talked to people who have kind of fringe beliefs and instead of having a conversation that a lot of people have if they are a skeptic about something and they're talking to believe where you shout at them and tell them never home and point out all the evidence and tell you gets into a volatile discussion sometimes instead of that. I've tried to have a civil and polite chat to try and explore the gap between us. So I don't believe in this idea of yours but I'm reading to figure out why I don't believe it. Why do so? Let's have a conversation? So have these kind of civil discussions and that's kind of how I came across That the flatter theory and the idea that there are people walking around today. Who think well this flat. This is really interesting and serendipitous that were sitting here because I knew that there were some flatter. Thor's out there and I just thought it was kind of strange and funny and about a week ago I discovered a friend of mine who is very well educated. She got a doctorate in biochemistry and She has a sister who's also very intelligent and very well educated and my friend told me that her sister is a flatter and that her sister is very indignant about the idea that We don't take them seriously and she said something to the effectiveness is hearsay. That we're getting for me right now. That will you know if you looked at the evidence. Then you'd know that what you've been told isn't true. So all of a sudden became fascinated with the flat earth people and then Just on twitter and I had I had been a follower verve yours until I saw this tweet that somebody I follow must've re tweeted that you had just given a talk in Edinburgh where I have been and So I reached out to you and it turns out you live in Liverpool and here I am in Liverpool today. So that's why we're here talking so tell me what do the flat Earth People Think and why do they think it so to your packet question that will bit because it's very easy for us to see the flat? Earth Movement is one singular cohesive movement and. That's how I I thought about it when I first came across in two thousand thirteen when I came across the flutter society in the UK. And so I had a conversation with the vice president of the Flat Earth Society and I assumed you probably have in your mind that people who believe the world is flat thing that the world's disk and in the center you've got the Arctic Circle then you've got all the continents of the world are splayed out to fill the circle. Antarctica is like the edge of disk. But I found out when I first spoke to flatter societies that not everyone in the world has that version of the world and the heads. Some do believe it's a disc but others believe that. Yes the Arctic Circle in the middle the landmasses around it and then on top Around the edge but instead of it being discreet disc some people believe in fact Antactica just on forever and all directions and so they believe that the earth is actually an infinite plane in all directions that bisects reality which is a really lovely idea. What does that mean by? Second three dollars so it will go on. North South East West go on forever and there is the above and the below. But there's no way of getting from the top to the bottom because it's just infinity of all ice in all directions forever so there's no way of getting below the earth and so this was when. I first came across the floor of moving in two thousand thirteen. This quite vociferous debate that was going on and the website of the three in the flat. Earthers yeah it was. It was quite a schism really and so they'd the society. The the time was largely a forum where they would bring forth that proofs of one version this theory or another and I also think there's another schism going on in the movement at the time Which is between one side which people who genuinely really believed the world was flat and the other side which after he did not believe it but enjoyed intellectual pursuit of arguing a position than you false and so they would find quite esoteric off the wall proofs that most people wouldn't think of and so when I first came across it in two thousand thirteen there are people waiting into these arguments who believe the world is round but had never thought about it the fall but just assumed innocent of arrogant way that they must know better than anybody who's thought about it and come to a different conclusion and so they were stumping into these arguments saying well what about photos of the earth from space and what about this and what about ships going with the rise in thinking. Well this is the Gotcha but not realizing that those are the first things they thought about that. They thought the world approved walls around. And therefore it's probably likely that people who think the world is flat had the same idea and yet they're still flat earth So at least in their mind they must have a good answer to that. The people believe the world was round in these arguments. Didn't have 'cause they'd never scrutinize the idea. They rejecting enough and so what was happening. Was I think to a degree? The part of the schism that were just having fun and move very well. The world wasn't flat but just enjoyed the pursuit of doing that. They will winning those arguments of people who are coming in and arrogantly assuming that they could answer everything and in winning those arguments they were really converting even more people who really believed it. And so you had this kind of effect where we saw spiral out of control a little bit. But I think it it wasn't viral in the way that in two thousand thirteen and a as a in the way that it was in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen. I'm think PA that is because that ISA teric off wall version of proofs could be quite complicated to get your head around so for example if you have the disc version the world and the infinite plane version both muddles suffer from an inability to explain gravity. You don't have the spherical mass united central mass of a central point pulling it all two to one point So it's very difficult to explain. Gravity neither one models but these people who are doing kind of East Tarik arguments are saying well what gravity gravity and accelerate falls towards the ground. Think nine point. Eight meters per second. Squared accelerates downwards. They said that is identical to a world in which the ground accelerates upwards to meet you and so when you let go of something it isn't that it's accelerating downwards that it's the grounds accelerating up to meet it Sephora relativity and that's this is exactly where they come to you so people then say when if ground is if the earth is an infinite in all directions that by sex reality and is accelerating open at nine seconds and always has been since the dawn of time. You'd hit a problem which would be the speed of light. You can't go fast so people don't have a Gotcha for this. And so the people who were putting forth esoteric the wall trobisch arguments would say well look at Einstein's theory of relativity as you approach light speed time itself slows down and the mats in their head works back out again so yes beginning. Quick time getting slower and we can account for gravity in that way. And that's quite a complicated auditing Enron. And so I think the fact that these people were winning arguments was getting converting some people movement but the way in which they were winning them were keeping people away from the movement because they were quite complex ideas to you. Couldn't stick them on a mean as you can these days. Here's a picture of the earth. You couldn't explain all that stuff about the relatively proving gravitate infinite plane version of the world. So I think it was a limiting factor going on and that's why when I first came across the free movement it was probably still pretty small. Pretty unknown I've been given talks about pseudoscience for the last five six plus years and I've mentioned that I came across the Flat Earth. Moving and people would always say to me this. Nobody who actually believes that nobody actually doesn't really exist. That people having fun with stay quite small and then in. Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen a couple of things happened that really ignited a movement and it was the publishing of two videos on Youtube video series on Youtube. One I believe was Eric. Debate tuned approves the Spinning Globe. And the other was mark sergeants. Fourteen videos in his letter clue series.

"Short stories are the perfect way to address a range of issues in an immediate and succinct. Way Sean Ben has done just that in his collection entitled a couple of things before the end so sean welcome to three. Ci thanks very much for having me. Now what sort of did you have in mind? It's a bit ominous sort of title. Yea Well I wouldn't be the person I mean just about everybody's GonNa soonest ought to be thinking about what the next ten twenty thirty forty s log and if you begin to read even in the mainstream press you'll start to get warnings that if the sky gets full of more particles that make the earth hotter and hotter parts of the Middle? Part of the Earth are going to become more or less uninhabitable this century and serious water and food shortages will come along with that. I mean this is nothing else but what anyone who gets anyway. Nissim Sci. He's starting to tell us Now then the question would come. Kenneth fiction serve that what can fiction do Without saying the same thing over and over but what what to do with that was really interesting to me was what would the people I grew up with. I love And also people who weren't exactly like the people I grew up with. How are we all going to be with this? What he's going to happen to to quite the people I really know once serious privation serious shortages dot to happen all around us. There's one story at the end Bunka which goes into that. We'll come to that one but there are other sorts of ends in mind here. The gained the a period in your life The end of communication is another one. That comes up. So let's delve into some of these stories and hopefully it won't be all that ominous Because there are some fascinating things here you did. The first story is called scouts. Were you ever a boy scout? I have to go ahead and say that I was a boy scout. I was a boy scout in the nineteen seventies I was very. I was particularly bad at sports which were an Australian boy his special problem but one thing I could find do with me was put me in cub scouts. And that work that worked I was especially bad at what we in. The nineteen seventies was called foot clinic Stood there disconsolate. A very small boy. Seven or eight years old in the middle of big muddy oval. And all I wanted was people might remember this. You GotTa be game at the end but for me it really was standing around in an hour on a on a baddeck not understanding really what to do with the football. I remember years ago. Michael Looney telling the story that when he was boy out in the country he was sort of Eilly united and confused by football. What you were supposed to do when the ball came down to woods him he picked it up. Held it to his chest and ran through the goals. Naturally as as one would. But it's a right of passage in some ways you know learning the not earning the badges miss but at what point do you sort of. What will does it come to an end? If we want to talk about ending but you transition the development there what was I suppose one of the things that got some pythons about being a scout? I mean they certainly some comedy as well but what was what was maybe saddle. Poignant upbeat about being a scout in the seventies wars you were participating in the system in. You didn't exactly think about lock these you'll participating in a system that was actually dying all around you which was the old British USTRALIAN loyalty. Oh British Astrid Unite. The revolt was valuable. Said they weren't sort of nineteen seventy seven nine hundred seventy eight nine hundred seventy nine a NI- uniform saluting the flag And trying to be sort of good junior soldier. Boys in a Y. Or at the very least the kind of good boy that you would have. That Biden Powell know if people remember Lord Biden Powell the founder of the Scouting Movement. But if you go back and look at scouting for boys it's the idea of kind of purposeful cleanliness in a little boy. That's also always turning into the effort to sort of locate and destroy aliens. But Tom and I don't mean I don't mean from outer space I mean the ones we leave this a militarist element. This is it. So it's it's playing soldier but it's also got an idea of self theirself idea of self control in it. There's a list of things that are good boy does that a scout does a scout prepared but a scout is also sort of honest in a tainted in some ways and I don't mean to mock all of that hopefully the thing about that stories. It's not all pissing from a high on the scouting movement. It's getting to something. Which was that? There was something in that I mean. I know we feel like this a lot now. But there's something in that old idea of self control. Which is such a daily on fashionable idea. Now the scouting movement held onto a part of it. But of course to us. It just looks ridiculous that you would wear your little uniform and your little hat and salute a flag on a Tuesday night. It's not so much ridiculous. One eventually which happens in the story eventually grows out of it yes and reevaluate says you grow older so it has its purpose in its place but as you say a lot of traditions a dying as well and they've got a reinvent. I mean the notion of a boy's group alone today. Isis audience changed another thing. That's changed the royals. You've got him on August news lead. There is an incompetent. Monarchist Focus Group pretty early in the and that comes out of the Scout Story too. Which is it goes to the whole idea of the Shia strangeness of trying to make an England down the bottom of Asia which we really did try and do. I went to London for the first time. Not that long gone about ten years ago. I had that thing that many many strengths must have had. Which is the shock of recognition that once you get through cock fosters on that train and start to going to London accord. It looks exactly like Hawthorne it looks. Exactly like Moldovan down to the last and you begin to understand why that you had before that we that that the F. It was really just to make these places again. The idea of Kemba well below Laos below. Papua we really tried for that and again I think one of the things. That's hopefully interesting about growing up. In the seventies I think the seventies there was a was a real transition time where that old idea that we could somehow Cape together an England down here began to break up and wash away and so and then then I mean then I think plenty of people listening to this would know this. But in a way the bill for that wasn't paid until the nineteen ninety s in the nineteen nineties. We had that exuberant Tom where we thought well. No no money in this and we'll just be Australian. It's all we can let England going by the nineteen ninety by the Howard years. You had the understanding that it was actually going to be something that we felt a lot more Sarah about a lot more angry about and we're going to punish somebody else but we still had politicians bringing back knighthoods and such luck. And that's you that's interesting but that was what was interesting about the Abbot Attempt. In about the time of that story about the top of that royal story where it really much to light now and even people that you wouldn't expect or the I thought the idea of Sir Prince Phillip and the first strategy night. All that's right it will be Prince Philip. Did you give Edinburgh that? The whole country in two thousand fifteen couldn't take that But just as Australia was reinventing itself oil or imagining its identity. Which is a growing sort of evolution. The monarchy is sort of caught in the same bind. Harry and Meghan done Mike it into the story necessarily only slightly but they trying to establish their own identity in a new ish. Can you hold on to the monarchy? This is where I think I mean. I think this is still true. This little against what I just said but I still think it's a strain schizophrenia. What you would think of is the oldest. Dr Steele holds a lot. Hold on a lot for monarchy and foreign idea of England that still does persist in one of the places it does possess these in those people in that royal family in the Queen and to some extent. Now I mean we tried Diana but now much more and William and Kate but the thing that Tom the thing about that he says it's just getting hotter and hotter for any family any group of individuals to actually be able to carry off what you need to do to be a barely successful enough royalty in the face of the sheer amount of virulent attention that the entertainment system is GonNa WanNa put on you. It's it's pretty much going to be impossible to be monarchy in the next fifty but also the the monarchy speaks to a tradition that goes back centuries which hasn't necessarily evolved and changed with the Moore's that go on today which is it's appeal. Which is the thing we desperately hope for that. You could point to any one group of things and say you want change will you? You'll stay the same. You promised The problem is is that as you say with them. What Harry and Megan is it. They couldn't take the deal that will often because the deal starts to get so strange which is listen. You'll be a representative of what is good in a sense. He's more self control. This idea that we're after over and over again but at the same time will pretty much persecute and you will be at you all the time. You'll open your door in the morning and hundreds of us where we tried to watch you and I I can't understand. I don't get a sense of whether this is to their credit or not. They just refuse that. Were like this is so awful. This is more or less like a kind of strange it privileged. But it's also a persecution and can leave. Just leave

Why Harry and Meghan are stepping back

"Big big news from the Sussex is who announced on January the eighth that they would like to step back from their roles of senior members of the Royal Family and and that will be what we'll be talking about this entire episode. We're GONNA be diving into everything you wanted to know about the situation what it is a couple want how we got to this point. The future looks like a much much more before. I'm joined by my guest this week. Cruise ship the editor. ICT News here in the u the UK. I just want to look at what sort of started this on January the eighth Wednesday. I remember it well because my phone went absolutely ballistic Harry and Meghan released the following statement. They said after many months of reflection and internal discussions have chosen to make the transition this year and starting to carve out a progressive new role within the institution. We intend to step back senior members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to support Her Majesty the Queen the statement goes on to say the couple wants to continue the honor of their duty to the Queen to Commonwealth and their patronage is but they would also like to embrace the geographic balance in their life to raise archie with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born and also provide their family with the space to focus on the next exch- chapter and that next chapter of course is the Sussex Royal charity that will be launching. Well listen the data change at this point but it was it supposed to be launching towards the beginning of the second quarter of this year. And that's really going to be. I guess where Harry and make more anchor. A lot of their work A lot of details still needs to be hashed out of course at is the clamper Sive effort with the Queen Prince of Wales the Cambridge. We don't quite know where this is going to happen but to talk us through all of this. I won't be alone this week. I'm joined by V news role at its. I would say my friend and Chris ship so I high joining me on here. Thank you very much. You've done me the honor of being on One of my digital shows so I thought I would at least return attend. The favorite is a pleasure to be talking to you. What we've had your colleague? You're very popular colleague with our listeners. lizzy on the show before so some would say the the hardworking calling. I think everyone is very much hard-working this week. It has blinded. How do you feel right now? I feel like I've been hit in the face by a by double decker bus I'm a little frazzled. A little tired. There's a lot to unpack and that's kind of what I wanted to switch great to be just really take a look at everything. I have had so many questions on social media. I'm sure you have as well. There's a lot of people. Don't quite understand obviously see that goes right to the top because I think there's a lot the senior aides working in Palestine quite understand at the moment. You're you're right and I think actually you know we're we're talking about the blindsided saying Ah to do this story. I mean it's clear as they didn't know that the statement was coming or at least they got a couple of minutes notice before people like you and me found out But I think they they they knew something was on the way I mean. Discussions in a very similar new sentence have been happening for at least a week or site beforehand but no one expected Harry and Meghan Zico House. We put this to go nuclear press that button and the way they did on on Wednesday night. Yeah I think that they had been a build up you know. Look if we want to. We can go back as far as beginning. If Autumn last year I think that being a lot of conversations within team mm Sussex and amongst the couple and their friends for quite some time about wanting to bring in some change. I think they felt quite frustrated about things and obviously there some things that happened in the past at. They're still haven't quite gotten over yet. Yeah I'd agree with you and I I think because I was involved with the big documentary entry that we made on my TV last year when they spoke to Tom Brady about all their difficulties in trouble. The rest of it. I mean I was with him for a lot of that now. I was watching it. Unfold phoned in front of me and I kinda get the sense that they were they wanted that to not any sort of reliefs vowels if you like but also just to set the ground around two so almost a warning shot to the rest of the family. That sings really aren't going very well. It's not just a niggle hair on there. Will there and you you know if you look back now. You can see that something monumental as we've had this week was on. Its Way and that was their way of a signalling handling to the rest of the world and the rest of the family that that something had to change. Yeah a potentially the you can only say that they have sort of I guess. Plan this stay. Stay step by step. I think the public being quite confused with this news had they've not had insight into their sort of state of mental wellbeing. Yeah they they could. They couldn't have planned you know as accurately as perhaps they wanted to but I think the thing they did have a long term plan to say if we do this and if we do talk to Tom Tom on the documentary and if we do hint a little about some of the big problems that we're having then that will pave the way make it a little easier for when we're in the new year we we we We we tell them that we want to do things differently. And obviously the six weeks in Canada was where they crystallized all that thinking all that fresh air all those mountains NHS and all that Sierra on the west coast of Canada was clearly the reason for gave him the opportunity. I think just to to sit down and go. What are we going to do? Are we really really gonNA stick with this for the next thirty years and they decided no. We won't see yeah. You have to wonder whether at the start of the week of severe at Canada House House for the reception that they attended. They wanted to give their thanks to the High Commissioner F older hospitality. They received in Canada and the support. They've received from the country tree itself. You have to wonder if they knew in the back of their minds that this was about to happen and at that point because they seem rejuvinated they seemed in great spirits. We were joking about a nine Mo- bars that was vie for the start of the week story. The big story was the no nine which I will now eat again. When I go to Canada the it took custody biscuit and And actually I saw because I was the the the the rotor correspondent on the visit. I saw that Some of Harry Meghan. I can stop left with some of these denominations wrapped up in plastic film and they took them home with them. So I don't know how many Harry had over the last I have After his history of that night there was a sugar hit. I think I would describe it as sustenance for heavy week ahead. Yeah I could do with one right now to be fair uh-huh but of course you know thinks quickly change and you know we had the announcement not then very quickly followed with the reaction from the palace which seemed weekly sleep together. I think there was a period between Harry and Meghan statement coming out and now saying from the palace. Every single phone across the households Holtz was engaged off unavailable one hundred percent. Yeah I couldn't agree with you more. And those ninety minutes I think between Harry Megan statement and the one from the palace that was let what two sentences long with very terse and short and abrupt insides we. Hey what they say. But we haven't got the first clue what to do about any any of it I think that reflected the I think we can call it anger anger frustration disappointment of on day. One if you like the day that Harry and make like an issue that statement and very quickly. It's almost perhaps they. They decided that this was the distracted. You take very quickly on day two. Was this Thursday I Then it was like okay. This isn't it was it was put to me. This isn't the pitch that we want to be playing but now we're on it's we're going to get on it own with it and decide what what on earth to do and and how to engage with them so that they're not they don't WanNa be on this pitch but they basically being forced to play on it. Exactly actually a friend of mine called that statements Simeon Texans at stiff upper lip rage. Yes yes absolutely dissipated overnight or maybe it's just a realization that you know we simply haven't gotten a choice is people that we've put a crack home exactly in and and you know almost twenty twenty four hours. Later we received guidance from Buckingham Palace confirming that the Queen and Prince of Wales Chief Cambridge of old directed teams to one's together at say at pace ace with the governments in the Sussex household to find workable solutions. So it's really went in the direction Harry and Meghan wanted and stop awesome. It started to make sense why it perhaps happened in this way. I think I agree with you. An Uber I was surprised by the. We're going to do this in days as no we. It's given how many sort of constitutional and financial decisions there ought to make military ones as well you get. Harry is the Captain General of the British. Royal Marines Leans which was a position that he took from the Edinburgh and the He retired he even Christmas type. Just I just think there were so many things to decide on here. Can they really by what Tuesday Wednesday of next week. All this sorted out. I mean I. I think that's a really tool that determined to do it. I think yeah and I think almost almost dare whether they do actually source all of this and that time they're under pressure to show that they have control of the situation because for you know three reese senior oils the current reigning monarch in the next two in line for them to look like this is out of control is just not an option. Yeah I agree with you and also to get. Yeah next week. The there's a particularly big visit for William and Kate in Bradford City in the northern England. If anyone listening to this outside the UK in Yorkshire and they want to focus on their some of their priorities like social cohesion. Brentford is a very multicultural city. an and unless there's some I'm sort of holding statement or some kind of you know initial planning your decision announced to the press full this visits will most. There's going to be about it's going to be you know it's going to be all about Harry and Meghan and and how these negotiations is still going on. Which is why I think we will get something however limited that might be By by Tuesday or Wednesday of next

Those experts off Chris Johnson head of computer science at Glasgow University. Best Bill up from the university of Edinburgh institute of stran- Amee microbiologist Luke McNally from the school of biological sciences. And bre and safety Gauguin's curator of biomedical science at national museums. Scotland now sometimes a bizarre idea quickly becomes the best idea and one experiment in particular rocked the world of genetics. As Christmas explores all the twenty second of February nineteen ninety seven in a world. I research is that the rules Lynn institute not far from here where we're sitting in announced that they had taken the DNA from the skin cells of an adult sheep and the head inserted it into an excel Wilson from a sheep from which they had removed its own deny. I like put that Xcel back into the uterus of a surrogate parent sheep and subsequently a lamb could Dolly was born and in Wilmot who's sitting next to me was the person who led the team that made that possible in is a huge privilege to have you here. Thank you for joining us. Point, which is very very important to make you need a crew of something like twelve or fifteen people to do this sort of experiment. So to say, I did it wouldn't be seriously misleading. Why did you start with sheep, though, Roslin Institute is has always been concerned with farm animals, and if you're thinking of using cloning ineffective on we'll species either to improve the performance to increase numbers the species with the gracious commercial interests would be the cow but Cutler extremely expensive to buy to maintain. And they have a very wrong just station. So that if you're doing an experiment where you transfer embryos as you said into a foster mother, you've got to wait, ten months, or whatever it is before we know the answer to the experiment. Mike comparison cheaper much easier to look after the a lot small of one thing that cheaper on their station is much than half that's of capital. So it was really thinking that sheep. Small cheap. Cows was the reason why we went which how did don't you? Go down will you sorta celebrated and did you get a good reception to what you announced to done or did you face quite a bit of controversy. We got an enormous amount of publicity, of course. And a lot of skepticism some people doubted, whether Dolly was really a clone. If you explain to people, the reason why you're doing this sort of thing, the majority would become supportive, but a small proportion would be half style to experiments with animals, and some people expressed concern that perhaps they would be accelerated aging, and that kind of thing on the politics. Dolly was was that bone out by experimentation is actually very difficult to do the experiments in cheap. It's much easier to do them in in mice. You really do have shorter generation into lifespan. I don't think that there is any evidence of this is quite a difficult and expensive experiment to do. You know, if you have to produce another generation in ways in another generation in ways. To see if you changing lifespan because it was a recent paper mother nature journals where they actually got the skeleton of Dolly and CAT scanned because one of the criticisms had been the that was premature oth- rightous. And did they not find from these studies that actually there was no evidence? Really that. There was an accelerated rate of all she didn't really show any signs of that compared with a sheet born the normal way. That's right. I'm aging was just a very slick journalistic expression to indicate that things went out, quite right. But I don't think there's ever been really good clear about the edging of clone animals. What would you like to see the long term outcome? Be. If you could wave a magic wand, and we'd be in a certain position will notice it and thing what is the final question that you would like to see on some now the gentlemen, understanding the thought Dolly was that once solid foam to particular type, it couldn't change or be changed artificially by..
