How Long Can Andean Condors Fly Without Flapping Their Wings
"Imagine your average three-year-old human child something around three feet or a meter tall probably covered in jam a now imagine that child trying to get off the ground with a pair of wings bid have to be pretty big wings. Welcome to the plight of the Indian condor species name Volt Hor griffiths the heaviest flying bird in the world. Weighing in at up to thirty three pounds or fifteen kilos, they keep their heavy bodies in the air with some of the longest wings in the world there wingspan can range over ten feet long that's over three meters. There are only a handful of birds carnally living on our planet have larger wings spans, and they're all pelagics, birds, a plastic birds being seabirds that soar over the open ocean for weeks at a time, such as fast petrels and sheer waters. As far as we know, the largest brand ever fly was the Pella. Gorna Sanders C., which lived twenty five to twenty, eight million years ago and was twice as large as the biggest bird living today with a wingspan of twenty four feet over seven meters. Seabirds can accomplish this. Thanks in part to the literally uplifting winds that flow over oceans the Indian condor. Mostly relies on updrafts high in the Andes mountains across much of Western, south. America. The problem with being such a huge bird is that it makes getting off the ground or even flapping those giant wings and flight a bit of an ordeal. Soaring is easy once they're up in the sky and that's mainly what Andean condors do they just float like hang gliders in the air currents sometimes serving the ground for dead animals to eat as a scavenger and sometimes just having an APP. But this means that taking off is the most costly part of the birds overall energy supply. Scientists have always known that they spend very little time flapping their wings but a study published in July of twenty. Twenty and the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found the Andean condors flap, their wings, a sum total of almost never. Not, only to the researchers find colossal birds, flap their wings one percent of their total flight time they discovered a bird could fly for five hours and more than one hundred miles or one hundred, fifty kilometers without flapping them once. The research team found that weather didn't affect how much flapping the condors were doing. Study Co author Hannah Williams a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior said in a press release. This suggests that decisions about when and where to land are crucial as not only do condor's need to be able to take off again but unnecessary landings will add significantly to their overall flight costs. All of which means that in Congress must understand how to use thermals, thermals being invisible patterns and bubbles of air moving all around in the atmosphere to their advantage, and they must understand this much better than scientists previously gave them credit for.

"Today. We're going to look at a couple of different species that would be evolutionary argument for witches vampires to hang on a second. Hang in there with me on this podcast. We all have a Disney idea. which is this are like vampire satellite but could possibly be just two species? We haven't looked at closely or close enough. Go to the internet or pull any book on which Che's Vampires from your local library on. You'll get the history of superstitions around which is or vampires. You'll be able to trace which is back to the Salem Elem which trials and even earlier your tracy to vampires who history will be pretty much the same shrouded in superstition except the vampire. Origins will appear to be different in different locations in Europe but the conclusions will be the same for both that their pockets of people around the world believe they are vampires or witches still. The bottom line is that there is no such thing as vampires or witches but there is an evolutionary argument. That Paul's both species out of the musty basement of superstitions where they've been relegated for Millennia are starting to beginning about eighty five million years ago. That's when our species split from other mammals then about eight million years later we had what what scientists call a tribe virgins one branches Komo's sapiens and it was that species that evolved into anatomically modern humans. The other two branches the virgins evolve differently. The most rare branch into the anatomically modern human. With the exception of the mandible the development element of teeth. The most common branch was discovered in graves that were found on the outskirts of villages. And we're all female area to species many of the stories you might have heard about tribes and the Amazon consisting of all female who seem to be based in fact based on hundreds of fossils that have been undiscovered both large jaw groups those vampires all female fossils found bin. Carbon tested hundreds of years. Old Old that is to say that both species were long live and the burial sites where they were found may be thousands of years old. This I would beg the question. Why these two species evolve different characteristics. The Astros a length of time. It took them to evolve to what we consider. Modern man would be based on what they had to do to survive. All three species have the same size cranium again. That is to say that their brain grew the same rate and to the same size but for some reason each address the issue of survival differently bones of those with the large jaw and exceptional teeth founding caves and their bones showed evidence of a disease is called. Ze Zir Adama. Oh Dermot Pigmentosa Tosa. Their skin was sensitive to raise the sun. The branch of female demonstrated a bonus order brought on by what the Chinese would call lack of In the West we would say say that they had soft malleable bones. But the one thing they both had in common. These other species was a parthenogenesis the ability to reproduce without a mate of the opposite sex. This trait would be something that began during the split from other mammals. Well this is all well and good the wire reports which is vampire activity so sparse in these modern times for the answer. Ultra on a metaphor are appendix. was once the size of a large banana. It contained a healthy bacteria breath. Help fight infection now. We Yank them out like a bad tooth. We have evolved past the need for an appendix which isn't vampires also also evolving both species or evolving past parthenogenesis the ability to reproduce without a mate of the opposite sex homo sapiens. conserver five without an appendix. But they cannot survive without parthenogenesis. In other words we need a partner. The opposite sex to reproduce in all three species evolved with the same for defense systems regeneration micro bio DNA and immunity Homo Homo sapiens could feed these four defense systems critical to their survival with a broad spectrum of nutrients dot so that appears in witches or the other two species if you wish vampire systems demanded high levels of protein. Red Blood cells white blood cells and platelets all elements that are contained contained in blood and of course contribute to the maintenance of lung tissue and organs and help maintain parthenogenesis for which those four defense defense systems and parthenogenesis were supported by Chee more sufficient specifically but the Chinese referred to as shipping or lifeforce that is contained in each sperm. So you can see that. Vampires with their Pigmentosa him needed blood to feed the five defense systems that fought off their sensitivity to sunlight which is on the other hand and perhaps because they're female major needs Jing. This might explain explain why throughout history which is mingled with Homo sapiens. In either case both species have evolved past parthenogenesis ability and have taken Homo Sapien mates but in so doing have deluded their very nature.

So we found something that we couldn't quite believe we found that there were bits of proteins surviving up to three point eight million years ago in climate. There is really, really hot and so that in the future, if people want to find engine protein sequences, then the better off looking at things that contain, for example, culture. Which is a very stable mineral. Because these things will have a better potential for preserving proteins results like this suggests we might be able to pay much further back in time using proteins than ever before. But that being said, there are some teething problems in the field, for example, contamination of ancient samples with modern proteins is a big concern and another challenge is trying to reduce the amount of actual precious sample you need in order to do your analysis. But Matthew Collins is confident we can overcome these hurdles, and he has big hopes for the future really for me the sky's the limit. I mean we know these proteins surviving, that's evolving of a long periods of time. But more than that, so much of what humans have done is to work with proteins. They could be meat or blood or milk. But also many of those materials used to make gums and pain. Ants as well as all of the remain such as bones and teeth, and parchment, and leather all of which are made of protein. So the range of materials that we've used as humans, which contain proteins, and the technological ability to recover ever small samples with greater precision and built interpret these data in a more sophisticated manner.

News in Brief 29 March 2019
"This is the news in brief from the United Nations hours from potentially massive demonstrations and concerns over an escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip on the Israeli border, the UN's top humanitarian official in Palestine Jamie McGoldrick on Friday called for calm from all sides to prevent further. Bloodshed in almost a year since weekly rallies began known as the great March of return and the breaking of the siege. One hundred ninety five Palestinians, including some forty children have been killed by Israeli security forces while one Israeli soldier had also died Mr. McGoldrick said in a written appeal briefing journalists in Geneva on behalf of Mr. McGoldrick Jens locker from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs or Archer described. The death toll as staggering and said the priority now is to save lives. Demonstrations today have extraordinarily been canceled with the expectation and the call for demonstrations tomorrow to a large scale, that's what we expect. Indeed, the reason why. The coordinators issuing this today is exactly precisely because of his an our entire humanitarian community's concern that we would see another tragic day tomorrow and everything and everybody must do everything possible to avoid that the development follows this week's rocket and airstrike exchanges between Gaza and Israel whose military must use nonviolent means against protestors to the greatest extent possible.

"eight million years" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"It's just it requires a bunch of extra sumptious. Yeah. I mean like one it's it's basically like any investigation, right? Yeah. Like if you were investigating an actual sandwich incident in your workplace, it's far more likely that someone in the office did it than someone. From a neighboring office who would have a harder time accessing the location in which the sandwiches store. Yeah. Then you also have to hypothesize them sneaking in and all that. Right. And like the further away you get from the sandwich from your office, the the more of a leap it becomes right? So the main reason you'd favor the co worker hypothesis is that you have to make many fewer assumptions without evidence to assume it and so at first glance this kind of thinking can make something like the aquatic a hypothesis looked good actually because hey, wait a minute. It's just one assumption. You have to make in order to explain all this different stuff. But the more you examine it the more. It becomes clear that the aquatic pipe out. This is actually requires a lot of assumptions of things not in evidence that just sort of get rolled up into one big scenario. You're picturing you can say that all how about all evolutionary increments in all steps in evolution of all. Features are caused by the ghost of biology, which is a spirit that lives in the sky that decides that creature should change and then makes little mutations to change it over time. That's just one assumption that explains absolutely everything in biology, but yet, but it's a big assumption yet the defies, or at least goes beyond the laws of science. It's like saying ghost took a bite out of the sandwich. Yeah. It's only one step, but it's a step that that goes beyond the scientific understanding of the workplace or the world itself. But then actually hawks makes another point he that I think is a crucial extension of this idea. So it's not just what we've already mentioned about some types of sumptious appearing parsimonious, but actually requiring a lot of assumptions, even though they only seem to be one scenario hawks actually shows a second way that it's not parsimony is. And he writes, quote, certainly, it makes sense that hominids would develop new anatomies to adapt to such an alien environment. He's talking about adapting to the water, but w-? Once those hominids return to land forsaking their aquatic homeland the same features that were adaptive in the water would now be maladaptive on land. What would prevent those hominids from reverting to the features of their land based ancestors as well. As nearly every other medium sized land, mammal, more than simple file genetic inertia is required to explain this. Since the very reasons the aquatic ape theory rejects the savannah model would apply to the descendants of the aquatic apes once they moved to the savannah, this is far from trivial since fossil hominids did inhabit open woodlands starting by eight million years ago and did move to the open savannah by three million years ago. Okay. So the idea here is that want you could maybe reasonably make the argument that right? The aquatic humanoids move out of the water, but it's still living close enough to the white. It is still going in the water. There's still a coastal species. You can say we'll maybe they retained some of those features. But they're moving further inland if they're becoming an inland species savanna species, then they would need those adaptations anymore. The the the economy of natural selection would drive those away. Yeah. One thing to be clear about here is that a very commonly still believed. But actually now obselete hypothesis is the idea that anatomical modern ity in human beings evolved on the savannah that we'd been came basically the animals we are now on the savanna landscape that used to be believed and now that's not true anymore. What what generally is believed is that we became basically, homo sapiens, in woodland environment in some, you know, basically, a tree oriented existence and then later move to the savannah, okay?.

We were still on Wednesday when we left you Amy Berman judge Jackson, if you're nasty ordered Manafort must appear in court for a major hearing about lying to Muller's team and breaching his plea agreement, and he was supposed to do that Friday following his request to waive attending proceeded. He didn't wanna come to proceedings. So he's like a motion to not come to proceedings. She ruled early in the week on Wednesday note, you gotta show up Friday. So we did Manafort disputes the over eight hundred pages of evidence, the special counsel office, provided that Manafort lied to prosecutors. So they handed over all this evidence. Because you know, if you remember Muller made, this breach filing that said that said Manafort lied about five things after you know, he started cooperating the judge was like give me the evidence. So we handed over the evidence like eight hundred pages, and he's like, I got more. But you let me know if you want more, right? So now manafort's disputing that. He didn't wanna have to show up in court the judges I give show up in court. So we thought big thing was going to happen Friday. But you know, he, you know, he said that basically he was like when he asked said he didn't want to have to show up to court. He said that the travel from jail to the federal court house is too time consuming. A fuck are you doing what is it taking away from what racket are you running out of prison that you can't take time off work is thirty minutes of exercise cutting into that circle. Walk time studying the bible or something for the first time getting jacked kidding shit. He's carrying his wall out into the yard one handful at a time Shashank judge Jackson said he's missed too many court hearings and Fridays to important. So Wednesday's filing was heavily redacted. We didn't get to see much of what it said. But Manafort showed up Friday, no decisions were made. But Muller's team is telling the court, he should not get any leniency in sentencing. Zero leniency that's gonna add ten to twenty years to his already seven year sentence, and he's eight million years old. So he'll already be in jail forever. No. He's seventy seventy. He's between seventy and eighty. I can't remember how it is. He's right. He's empty but ten to twenty years is going to take up most if not the rest of your life. Judge Jackson wants more information, and she set up a sealed hearing for February fourth Manafort, like I said faces up to fifteen to twenty five years in prison now because Muller says Nolan Yancey here's eight hundred pages allies of got more. If you need it. Judge Jackson if you're nasty good. Yeah. But he doesn't wanna come because he knows he's just like fucked beyond belief, and it doesn't even matter anymore or be he thinks he's gonna get pardoned. So he also doesn't care. He just doesn't give he showed. He got to wear a suit. Yeah, he asks you got to wear a suit they where soon he had a cane and people were noticing. He was leaning heavily on the Cain. He's very pleased. Can I wear a suit? I'm surprised she let him do it this time because he's so fucked. She was like fine. He can wear a suit. All you get. All you, can I guess it was a concession like I'm gonna make you come to these court hearings. Yeah. You can wear a suit. I got just didn't want to appear it. But I would rather go into jammies. Because I just I I would wear Jamie's to work if I could but not just going to get broken out of prison firms held like Russian helicopter Giuliani going to dig here. Style.

But they don't live long Rygiel is only about eight million years old, but it's aging in a hurry. It's converted the hydrogen in its core to make helium. Now, it's converting the helium to make even heavier elements as this process moves along Rygiel is likely to become much bigger that'll make its outer layers cooler. So they'll glow orange or red and before long the process will reach its end the star will no longer produce nuclear reactions in its core. So the core will collapse and the stars outer layers will blast into space ending Raja life as a spectacular.

"And so the suggesting it is going to be the woman who says I find that really offend. I'm suggesting is about probably is never mind, but women are also more sensitive today. Give emotion. So there is some slightly higher probability that that might be the case. But then I think women are also associated at least in men's imaginations with nature, which is part of the chaotic domain say as opposed to culture because they're sexually selective. So you think what is nature we have that as a cognitive category. Right. We think of the natural world, we think of nature versus culture, it's a fundamental opposition. What is nature? Well, nature is trees and landscapes and animals and all of that. But that isn't what nature fundamentally is nature fundamentally is that which selects from a genetic perspective, that's nature. That's the fundamental definition of nature. And it is the case that human females are sexually selective, and it's a major component of human behavior. So the. The evolutionary theory. Roughly speaking is that the reason we diverged from chimpanzees eight million years ago seven million years ago is at least in part because of the differences between sexual selectivity between female, humans and female, chimpanzees female chimpanzees are more likely to have offspring from dominant males, but it's not because of their sexual selectivity. So a female chimpanzee has periods of fertility that are marked by physical by observable physiological changes not the case with human females human female automation is is concealed. So that's a very profound biological difference between human females and chimpanzees and the chimpanzee females will mate with any male, but the dominant males chased the subordinate males away but human females are sexually selective. And so, and it's not trivial fact so you have twice as many, female and. Sisters as male ancestors. You think well how can that be? Well, imagine that on average every single human female has had one child throughout the entire course of history, which is approximately correct, by the way, then imagine that half of the man had zero and the other half had to. Okay. And that's roughly the case so half of males. Historically, speaking have been reproductive disasters. And the reason for that is because of female sexual selectivity. So it is actually the case that female, humans are nature. It's not only that they're that. They're associated with nature symbolically as far as reproduction is concerned. They are the force of nature that does the selection and so their nature in the most fundamental way. And there is a chaotic element of that at least in relationship to men and also in relationship to women because a lot of the female on female competition is competition that's chaotic for the right to be sexually selective. Right. Not only with regards to man, which drives a lot of politicking. But also in relationship to each other because part of what human females do is jockey for position in the female dominance hierarchy for the top position. Which is the woman who gets to be most sexually selective. And so that drove. Female female competition, and it's different dynamic. There's there's similarities between female female competition and male male competition, but there are also differences and their pronounced so men, for example, while men are more likely to compute compete for socioeconomic status, and that's partly because that drives female may choice. So the correlation for men between socioeconomic status and sexual success is about point six and for women. It's zero. Zero. In fact, it's actually slightly negative you so and that's a huge difference between men and women. I know that you knew the anthropologists Sarah Hertie, HR D Y, an and she's like my favorite feminist theorist. Although is she would say, I'm a theorist who happens to be a feminist, but she studied primate behavior, and she watched she looked at the women very care.

"Everybody loves turtles. I think maybe he doesn't like hope not everyone loves turtles does all we. So that we can all agree on as a species, but turtles have for a long time been sort of a paleontological mystery because the earliest turtles show up sometime in the triassic, Patrick or later than that. No. I think that's fair. But the earliest turtles that show up. Look, basically like turtles like they've already got a fully formed shell there's some characterists. They've already lost all their teeth, and they have a beak there's there's maybe some characteristics that we don't see as often as modern turtles. But by and large all the turtle Innis is established. And it's been somewhat of a mystery in the fossil record how you know, how to turtles go from a more ancestoral reptilian state to their full on turtle tude and. Fossil Patrick guess. Yes. We did. So the this fossil found in. I don't know. How do you say that province in China? He's us how okay. So this disguise two hundred twenty eight million years old coming out of southwest China. It has no shell. And it also has some looks like some small teeth in its ache as well. So yeah, the shell the shell is definitely significant when it comes to turtles that's pretty much. How you know? You're looking at a turtle, but the other trick that turtles had done in order to grow that shell is. They moved their shoulder joint inside the ribcage hips too. Or just the shoulder. I think just the shoulders because your hips are. I mean, I guess those are somewhat inside the ribcage. Anyway, I mean, you can imagine that if your ribs continue to grow out vertebrae all the way down that. I think your hips would basically be inside your your rib-cage anyway or close to it. It would be debatable. But your scapula is definitely floating outside of Europe. Gauge, not so in turtles turtles have moved that shoulder joint inside their ribcage. And that's the real the shells. Nice. But that joint being inside rib-cage is real turtle nece red turtle. Our he would say this guy already has it going on. So clearly a turtle doesn't have the shell yet. So if you were just see him walking around, I'm not sure you would be like goes goes an early turtle. But you you look at skeleton, and you know, the sin qua non. Was I mean, an essential condition of thing that is absolutely necessary because the reconstructions of this turtle as it may have looked in life. You know, they don't reconstruct it with a turtle it does kind of still have that bulbous body. But it looks more to me like sort of in reconstructing in the water in a marine environment. And it looks more to me like a please the us or one of those kind of fat bodied marine reptiles that had a good long run in the Mesozoic. But there is there is some essential turtlenecks of the shape. And it does have that early version of kind of getting that beak. I it's interesting that it has a few teeth still hanging around, but the beaks getting there they named the turtle EEO Rinco kilos sinensis, which means so EEO means dawn, which usually give that apple at two things that are early in the lineage of that group. So like, the dawn of turtles Ranko means beak and kilos means turtle sinensis means China. So it's now in. Heard at the national museum of Scotland. And it's actually a really beautiful fossil from the photo in the article. Yeah, the fact that they I mean back that they know it has teeth means you had to get some of the skull on the fact that they know it a turtle. Well, I don't know they might be able to know that more or less from the skull. But the fact that they have that shoulder joint. Yeah. I mean, it is incredible stuff. They get out of its tail super long for turtle. That's true. It's it looks more. Like, a these reconstructions remind me of marine iguanas accept this kind of a flattened puck shake to its central body. Where's the iguana still cut along gate? But otherwise, yeah, I could see that especially when they've got in in silhouette in the back just like Redick wanted swimming right there. Now, this paper was published in August in the journal nature. Charlie. So I know if you listen to our previous episode we're talking about science publishing. There's a mild conspiracy theorist surrounding paleontology papers published in nature, but that aside the.

New research may help us come up with a more complete explanation for earth's last ice age until now we've blamed the ice age on a combination of astronomical cycles atmosphere, conditions, ocean currents and plate tectonics. And now, geophysicist think they have one more reason, the earth's wandering polls. I get it. Because the red on the polls represents blood the white stripe represents Ben. Hong not barber. Poles Cody that was the previous episode. Oh, right. I meant polls as in the north and south poles. So as reported by universe today. This study was recently published in the journal geophysical research letters, and it says earth's last ice age may have been caused by shifts in the earth, relative to its spin access that caused its polls to wonder for the study, researchers analyzed you physical evidence from the Pacific Ocean that included fossilized patterns of deep ocean sediments the magnetic signature of ozanich crust and the position of the mantle hotspot that created the Hawaiian islands from this. The team figured that within the past twelve million years the earth experienced what they call true polar wander. That's what happens when the entire planet shifted relative to its spin axis when that happens the locations of the north and south poles literally change or wander in this case Greenland, moved far enough toward the. North Pole to kick off the last ice age the shift, the researchers measured would only be about three percent. But that would have had the effect of moving the earth's mantle if Greenland and parts of Europe and North America would have moved north then that would result in lower temperatures there which could have triggered the last ice age looking ahead. The researchers are hoping to build on their analysis. They want to extend it from twelve million years ago to the present. But they also want to extend it further into the past beyond the forty eight million years start date, they used for the study the result of this could be a more refined understanding of how earth's geological history it's ice ages and the evolution of life are all interconnected. I wonder if our pulsa travels east instead of an ice age we ended up with a sleepy age. I think you're definitely in the sleepy age right now.
Solit- Crater, Mr. Mcgregor And Sudbury Basin discussed on Quirks and Quarks
"The earth is covered in scars evidence of violent collisions with space-borne debris like the chicks solit- crater in Mexico formed when a fifteen kilometer wide asteroid hit so hard it wiped out the dinosaurs. Or the Sudbury basin a one hundred and thirty kilometer wide crater caused by impact one point eight million years ago or the famous meteor crater in Arizona, which is small just a kilometer in diameter, but is a major tourist attraction. Well this week researchers announced they found a new scar. And it's a biggie. A thirty one kilometer wide crater bigger than the city of Paris. That's among the largest impact craters on earth. It was likely caused when a kilometer wide iron meteorites smashed into our planet, and it was found in an unexpected place underneath an ice sheet in Greenland and their investigations also revealed that this crater was. Relatively speaking pretty fresh. It was discovered by an international team that included NASA glaciologist Jo McGregor an expert in studying ice sheets and what lies beneath them. We caught him in Shwe Argentina as he's about to fly a research mission over Antarctica, Mr. McGregor. Welcome to quirks and quarks. Thank you very much. Glad.

"I'm talking about how well do we see violence in animals, which is organized in such a way that it resembles war and it turns out that in chimpanzees, we do. We see we, it's referred to coalition violence because war is very human specific term. Now, conservatives sometimes use that as a model to justify to try and understand human behavior when it comes to coalition violence in war, which is a permanent feature for at least ten thousand years in human relation. In contrast, the the bonobos cousins of the chimpanzees have not violence free society, but it's matriarchal patriarchal and they use sex to very much of the Mike love not war exactly the phrase it's been uses the sixties when when this behavior was first identified. Now the truth of the matter is this two things. We kind of forget when using these to these two eight examples. To think about our behavior. The first is that bananas and chimpanzees equally related to us, right? So we separated from the branch, became chimps and bonobos abouts eight, seven or eight million years ago. And then they split about two million years ago and we have completely different behavioral sets in the bananas in the chimpanzees which have emerged within the last two million years. The second thing is it. If this is the behavior which helps us understand our own interest in sex violence, we seem to forgotten actually, you know, we spent eight million years of ov- ING from away from coming on center and so did they so often in these conversations with visionary psychologists as position that we see behavior in an animal which is eight million years removed from us, and we presume that there was some antecedent behavior which hasn't changed in that animal right? And therefore it's a useful model to look chimpanzees doing coalition violence. And saying, well, that's the reason that we all the way we are now. It may be true, but it's bad science because we just don't know. So to assert that it's that these behaviors in almost any case. Definitively useful in unstinting human condition. It's just bad sons.
