Extreme Heat in the West to Send Temps to Triple Digits
"The west is broiling. Excessive heat warnings are in effect again today from phoenix where today's forecast was one hundred. Twenty degrees to eastern montana where some farming towns braced for highs close to one hundred ten. Npr's kirk siegler reports. There is little relief in sight. For the drought stricken region. How hot is it. It's like opening an oven when you're baking pie. Captain scott. douglas is a paramedic with the phoenix. Fire department the city is open sixty six cooling refuges and hydration stations at parks libraries and pools. It's hot and people say it's a dry heat. And i'm like well you know what when it gets two hundred seventeen hundred and eighteen degrees. It doesn't matter if it's dry. Moist phoenix broke records last year. For hitting a hundred degrees or higher for more than one hundred and forty four days last year was also a record wildfire year and much of the west and every day. There's a headline screaming. This summer could be worse arizona. Lawmakers are holding a special session this week to consider a hundred million dollar emergency bill for firefighting and prevention in nevada were invasive grasses and drought have fueled record range fires lately. Firefighters have been dealing with one hundred degree temperatures for the past two weeks. Paul peterson is the fire management officer for the federal bureau of land management. They're typically we wouldn't have a heat and winds until mid july. So i'm hoping that's not an indication of what we're going to see in the future.

Right now is making the heat. Even worse
Man-Made Operations Present Serious Threat To Ocean Biodiversity
"Fish contend with evermore relentless methods other threats are looming over their survival the many other activities in the oceans that perhaps go a little bit under the radar or not as indata as fisheries for example coastal zone development the removal of mangroves and see grosses for a number of purposes from mineral extraction to the building marinas to the expansion of bet's to dragging of harbors lots of those activities that perhaps one does not think so much in terms of the impact. That is the first thing. Second of course. Oil exploration and such activities that do have significant impacts most of those activities. Take place with a narrow band from the continental shelf. They will be largely within the first fifty kilometers from the coast. That is the area of the oceans that he's particularly impacted. And i'm including here. Pollution issues runoff from agriculture production. Lots of nutrients are end up in the plastic pollution and the like those areas of a highly impacted when it comes to high-seas further away from the coast than the major impact really is climate change because the ocean place a very significant role in regulating the climate for example ninety percent of the additional heat that we have produced as a result of global warming sits in the ocean and a quarter of the carbon emissions that we emit are in the ocean so the ocean has a very very significant rolling climate regulation and also a significant impact in fact. It is the geographical area that will suffer the impact of climate change. Most so when you think about temperature change what you'll see is that organisms adopt that so all fish tend to have an environmental window. They feel comfortable in and that environmental wind might be safe from seventeen to eighteen degrees if those seventeen to eighteen degrees move physically because the water is warming they will move without water and so we expect a number of species to move to. What's the polls in both directions. So that's the first impact changes in distribution. There will be also changes in production. Some species will see a decrease in production another son increasing production all that has huge implications for food production in the ocean at all levels if you can imagine for example. A fisherman suddenly going out to sea not finding the face that they're used to fishing on it's not that easy to change to another species to fish because some of them require different boats different gear on different technology and different expertise. That goes all the way. The food chain all the way up to humans.

The Year Without a Summer
"The heat of summer is well and truly here in the Northern Hemisphere, the hot humid days just won't let up and living in new. York City I continue to be frustrated that central air conditioning is not as ubiquitous in homes and businesses, as it is in most parts of the southern United States where I grew up. Then, of course, it's always been substantially hotter in those southern states, although with climate change, the northeast is heating up more and more, but that does make me think sometimes. How the heck did people survive before? Joining especially in those very hot climates, farmers ALMANAC A few insights nothing to mind blowing people would take day trips to swing holes or up. To cooler weather, they kept windows and doors shut at midday to keep out hot air and delayed cooking or baking. Until the evening they ate refreshing. Cool treats and was available in homes, blue fans across blocks of ice, the biggest factor most likely however was it simply wasn't as hot as it is now at least in terms of extremes, quoting farmers, Almanac, the extra ordinarily hot summers that are commonplace today were virtually unheard of fifty to one hundred years ago in fact, seven of the top ten coolest, US summers on record occurred nineteen, hundred and nineteen fifty and quotes. There was one year however over two centuries ago now that it was a lot cooler. Eighteen Sixteen Aka the year without a summer quoting farmers. ALMANAC referred to by many names, including the poverty year and eighteen hundred and froze to death, the year eighteen sixteen was literally a year without a summer across much of the northern hemisphere throughout not only North America, but also northern Europe and parts of Asia in exceptionally cold summer, featuring killing frosts in July in August crippled food production crop failures in food shortages were. Were so widespread that rioting and looting became common in the United Kingdom and France on this side of the Atlantic. Many residents of New England and the Canadian Maritimes froze to death, starved, or suffered from severe malnutrition, as storms, bringing foot, or more of snow, hit hard during May and June. Many others from the region pulled up stakes and move to western New York in the Mid West where the cold was less severe. In fact, the year without a summer is now believed to have been one major catalyst in the westward expansion of the United States and quotes Nicole may have been less severe in the southern and Western us, but it was still highly unusual on July fourth eighteen sixteen. It was forty six degrees Fahrenheit in Savannah Georgia. For the record this year on July fourth and Savannah, it was ninety degrees. So. Why did this happen? It was due to one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history Indonesia's Tamboura. The volcano erupted on April Fifth Eighteen fifteen, continuing to up for a week and killing nearly all of the twelve thousand residents of Tim, Bora as well as almost all plants in animal life on the island, quoting the Paris review, countless tons of volcanic. Volcanic ash circulated in the upper atmosphere for years after the events blocked out sunlight and lowering average surface temperatures globally in parts, of North, America Europe temperatures dropped by more than eighteen degrees. Fahrenheit there was snow in New England July and dark rain clouds swept over Europe throughout the summer months in Hungary reports of Brown snowfall, tainted by volcanic ash and quotes. Understandably many thought the world was ending that the sun was dying. It's really fascinating. Though is some of the cultural ripples that this massive event caused. You may be familiar with the story of how Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was inspired to write Frankenstein as part of a spooky storytelling challenge when she percy shelley and Lord Byron and friends were holed up in a villa in Geneva. One stormy summer turns out. It was this dark, thunderous apocalyptic. Apocalyptic summer of eighteen sixteen. The crew had gone to Geneva, both to ride out the unusually rainy summer, but also to escape their various dramas in England, being stuck indoors for so much of their trip Lord. Byron challenged them all to write ghost stories to entertain one. Another Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein which would set the stage for all of science fiction to come? Also among the Geneva Villa guests was Lord Byron's personal physician Dr John Polidori. Who wrote short story for the challenge called the vampire, and this story is often credited with the birth of the Modern Vampire Romance. But those genre defining publications aren't the only cultural institutions to come out of the summer last year of Eighteen, sixteen among the mini shortages across Europe was a crucial shortage of oats which led to the starvation and deaths of countless humans and livestock, including at least ten thousand horses, not counting how many were also slaughtered to save money or become dinner German? Baron Carl Dreyer's and inventor in student of mathematics started trying to design a man powered form of transportation, while historians agree that he was inspired by the weather based os shortage. He also saw a need for an alternative to horses as crucial for war. Quoting the Paris review his first designs for human powered transportation involved complex conveyor belt, driven four wheeled vehicles, but raises breakthrough came when he turned his thoughts to balance drawing on his experiences, skating on ice ponds drains, put his faith in the power momentum and front wheel, steering to keep a two wheel vehicle rate. This idea became his love, machine or running machine and quotes, and this running machine would become the modern day bicycle. All of this makes me think about how many things will change or be invented from this moment that we're living through. And of course there's a lot of things we're already seen, and we're likely to continue to see some big cultural shift, but like who, out there is writing the next genre defining novel that people will still be reading two centuries later. Who's inventing something that will be innovated on for decades before becoming a ubiquitous ordinary mode of transportation. Maybe won't be those types of things specifically, but there are surely ideas happening and things being created that we won't realize the impact of for decades
How Does Uranus Work?
"Scientists have coined an appropriate term for the large chilly bodies like Uranus ice giants. Neptune falls into the same category. But you're in. This is quite an odd duck compared to its neighboring planet. For starters you're a spins on an extreme tilt resulting in some truly wild seasons around the polls even the ice giants name is a bit peculiar and not just because it makes school kids chuckle. Okay let's not kid ourselves. You're never too old to enjoy good year in joke. Headline Writers certainly don't thinks so if article titles like NASA wants to probe urinate in search of gas and Uranus. Smells like farts are any indication. These jokes if you're not getting them hinge on the spelling of Uranus you are an US allowing for an english-speaking mispronunciation as your anus meaning rectum that where classy puns. Aside you're in his represents a break with nomenclature old tradition mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn and Neptune all took their names from Roman gods or deities however uranus uniquely was named after a Greek God in the religion of Ancient Greece. You're an was revered as the primordial God of the sky he had a son named Cronos and a perhaps more famous grandson notice Zeus. Those two figures were later conflated with two Roman Deities Saturn and Jupiter though the planet Uranus was discovered by Stromer William Herschel March thirteenth of seventeen eighty one. He didn't give it the name we use today. A loyal Britain Herschel wanted to call this far away. World Georgie 'EM CD's or Georgia Star. In honor of King George the third but by nature. That name was politically charged to avoid. Alienating non-british Stargazers German astronomer Johann Alert Buddha suggested calling the planet uranus in seventeen eighty three eventually his alternative Monica one out but back to that axial tilt a planets rotate around an axis. Which is the imaginary line connecting their northern and southern polls and they simultaneously orbit on an imaginary plane around the Sun now Earth has an axial tilt of twenty three point five degrees. This means there's a twenty three point five degree angle between Earth's axis and its plane of orbit around the Sun without the tilt our home world wouldn't have seasons or possibly life. Uranus is skewed to but to a much greater extent in relation to its orbital plane. The ice giants access has been tilted at a chopping ninety seven point seven degree angle next to Saturn and Neptune. Urine looks like it's lying on its side so what we are orientation. A computer simulation published two thousand eighteen suggests your was hit by a huge Proto Planet. Around four billion years ago then again there may have been multiple impacts or a long gone circum. Planetary Disk could have played a role however it happened. The tilt subjects both polls too long dark winters long. Bright Summer's on Uranus was orbit around the Sun or one year lasts for roughly eighty four earth years. Each poll is aimed almost directly at the Sun for about twenty one St Earth years during its summer season. Meanwhile the other pole faces the opposite direction. Enduring Alliance Dark Winter. Despite the extreme tilt urine is warmer at the equator than it is either poll. Nobody knows why. And this isn't the planets only mystery. Jupiter Saturn and Neptune already radiate more than twice as much heat as they received from the Sun. Yet you're innocence. Heat output is significantly lower. This disparity has long baffled planetary scientists as we already mentioned. You're innocent. Neptune are both ice giants planets of this sort have rocky cores covered by mantles rich. An icy half frozen slush of ammonia methane and water next up there's the atmosphere whose outer level is full of hydrogen helium and even more methane researchers found that urinalysis atmospheric clouds contain hydrogen sulfide. A compound responsible for the rotten egg stench. We all know in hate so yes. You're in literally stinks to the densest part of its atmospheric sees brutal temperatures of negative two hundred forty three to negative three hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit. That's negative one fifty three to negative to eighteen degrees Celsius. That's hardly a welcoming environment for any future astronauts but at least the color scheme would be familiar. Earth isn't the only blue planet in the solar system. Methane absorbs red light giving Uranus and Neptune deep blue complexions of the two worlds. You're in a slightly greener since nineteen seventy seven. We've known that Ernest has a ring system around its equator to date. Astronomers have counted thirteen rings encircling the planet the structures are relatively dim and lack the fine particles observed and other rings systems like Saturn's each one is composed of debris chunks that are golf ball sized at minimum for some reason smaller material gets exiled and space between these rings in also has twenty seven known moons twenty five of which renamed after Shakespeare characters like affiliate Juliet. There's Dimona puck and Miranda who's namesake appears in the tempest geologically complex. Miranda contains the single policy cliff known to humankind dubbed Verona repays. It has an estimated height of twelve point four miles. That's twenty kilometers. Meaning that if you happened to be walking along its peak and you happened to fall off. You would plummet for twelve minutes straight before hitting the ground. Others satellites of note include sicker acts and Caliban while most of your Ennis's moons spin in the same direction as the planet does these to revolve the other way. Scientists think they were once independent objects that the ice giants gravity in snared by the way how ban is another tempest character and sicker. Iraq's was said to be his mother from it's weird rings. It's puzzling climate. You're Ennis's found plenty of ways surprises. Only time will tell what further mysteries the planet holds until then although it's very dim your is visible to the naked eye on some dark clear nights if you have sharp vision if not so much. It's easily visible with noculars or a telescope.
Hottest places in a city often low-income neighborhoods
"Concrete and asphalt absorb the sun's energy so when a heatwave strikes city neighborhoods with few trees and lots of black pavement can get hotter than other areas a lot hotter fifteen eighteen degrees. Fahrenheit difference across the city at the same time. Be Shawna's Portland State University. Leads a heat mapping project funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration over the last few summers? The project partnered with local groups in Washington DC Portland Oregon Boston and other cities. Volunteers used cars equipped with sensors that gather temperature and humidity data. Sean does and his team use that data to create digital maps showing how temperatures vary block by block. The hottest areas are often low income underserved. Neighborhoods Sean says. Getting residents involved in collecting data can help inspire local solutions. For example people may initiate tree planting projects targeted at the neighborhoods. That need them. Most the partnerships have been really instrumental in being able to get the communities together to convene them to go out and do this campaign and then to come back and start interpreting what it is that they're seeing ultimately what it is they can do about it

A Decade of Dzud: Lessons From Mongolia's Deadly Winters
"So for people. Who Don't know I totally know where is Mongolia? Mongolia is in Central Asia right between Russia and China. The landscape to me looks a little bit like a mixture between Montana and Mars if you can picture that delightful so this this time last year before you were short waves reporter. You don't like to think about that time. You went to Mongolia it's true. Why would one go to Mongolian winter all the travel guides discourage discourage it? I might discourage it but I purposely went there then because winter is at the heart of this whole story. So how cold are we talking here. It's super cold. uh-huh freeze your nose. Harris cold I actually had to tape. Hand warmers all over my microphone so it wouldn't freeze. Wow it is cold. Oh I found this piece of tape tape of me complaining about it minus eighteen degrees right now. This is really cool. I could tell me what you say. Cool coach it wasn't acting but some types of winters are so extreme matty that they actually have an official name so in Mongolian. It's called a zoo would that's when a winter tur- is so bad. It kills significant number of livestock in Mongolia or one out of four people make their living hurting. That has huge consequences. I mattie Safai and I'm Emily Kouanga today in the show. We had to Mongolia to learn about the brutal winters known as and how these natural disasters have changed enjoyed countries way of life okay so Mongolia is periodically affected by this extreme weather event. That happens in the winter called. What does this look like? Yeah so tender standard. I wanted to meet someone directly impacted. Divide it this man named Roy Eaton Gacek. He's a father of four super good bad Santa could do prates daughter's hair getting get somebody for school and everything. He was born a herder in eastern Mongolia and in January. Two Thousand Oilman as he tells it woke up at sunrise to check on his animals. Snow had fallen in the night about a foot. They were writing out a bad winter storm and he was really worried about is heard so how he cracked the door of his gear. Those are these circular felt cover tents that herders living and it was eerily quiet outside blindingly finding Lee white from all this snow. What did you see when he opens the door? Do not with this new household off. He's Carcass Saas new. Shut us a dozen of his sheep. Goats had died in the night. Those still alive yet about one hundred animals at the time. We're trying to find grassy but the land was literally locked in by snow. The hotel does ndas and it was really difficult to see this. He Sang. It was horrifying and it happened. Every few days boyens animals would succumb to starvation. Illness exposure and by the end of the winter he essentially lost his entire heard the type of food that came to his doorstep. It's called Saga which Mongolian means white death. While I think a loss at this level I imagine it's not purely financial absolutely I mean this. This isn't the same but there are dairy farmers in my family and you kind of like build relationship with your cows you literally like have them from birth to death so I have imagine it would be devastating like on multiple levels if you just slowly lose them over time right. They're not just economic assets and the loss of those animals is a social loss. It's spiritual loss experts. I spoke to in Mongolia. Described as a slow onset natural disaster different from a rapid rapid onset natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. So how many other herders were affected by the white death that year that year the two thousand six it claimed claimed about three and a half million livestock. Wow quite a bit law. It's eleven percent of the national hurt. And when you consider that at the time one out of every two households made their living hurting. It's significant begin. Animals represent wealth. So it would be as if your life savings were too slowly disintegrate. So what did the herders actually do in response Some rebuilt their heard those who could but others who lost everything they left gave up hurting fled the countryside seeking jobs in in urban areas uprooting. Their lives are good hurting Dad Johansen hair braided guy. He was one of those who left. Almost your short could the mother oh well many migrated. He's saying because it was impossible to make a living and it shows in the population and barter that's Mongolia's capital it has has tripled in the past thirty years exploded. Zid is one of the many migration drivers bringing people to the city. And I could see this when I lived there. I was reporting reporting and living in his apartment building and I looked off my balcony window. The hills were just covered in Gares. Those felt covered tents that herders live in. It was a picture. Sure of all of these people who had moved to the city and settled there and the city. Just couldn't contain all the new arrivals or does it still happening as it. On this scale that hits every corner of the country not that common prior to two thousand had happened about once a decade but was weird about two thousand is. It happened the next year and the next year and again again in two thousand ten so by the end of the decade there were forces and twenty one million livestock died in that period it totally overwhelmed Mongolian people that government tens of thousands of families packed up and left. That's that is horrifying of what is going on. Like what is causing US okay. So it's tempting to blame climate change and that is in fact the biggest culprit in this whole affair. Mongolia is indeed a warmer drier. Replace than it was eight years ago. But what I found is that zoot is actually caused by cocktail of other factors like over-grazing and deforestation. Basically quickly anything that destroys. The grassland is bad for animals. You need that grassland lending food it's a goat's buffet table and to not have it sets them up for good because this summer is a time when they fatten up. And if the grass is gone from drought or other things they're even more vulnerable when the winter is bad. Oh little bit of science here yes. The drought okay. Means less grassland and in Mongolia less grassland creates even more drought vicious cycle. Yeah because Mongolia. It's land locked all right. So the vast majority of precipitation rain snow. It comes from the land it comes from the grass. Water is transpired by plants into the atmosphere so so without grass Mongolia is even drier so given all of this is hurting still considered a good way to make a living in Mongolia. I think Mongolians are trying to figure that out. There's fewer herders but they're better prepared and trying to manage the Paschel and more sustainably local communities training herders to brace for a bad winter. Do things like make extra. Hey for their animals to eat. Purchase Livestock Insurance and pool there resources so the individual costs aren't so high all right so that that sounds great but are herders still kind of on edge. Are they like Shariq. Dowd anticipating the next. You know so I used to report in Rural Alaska inefficient community and herders. They kind of remind me of fishermen they know they're at the mercy of the weather but they're very tough and resourceful within their own lives and herders are doing the same. They're trying to make the most of what they have. They're kind of cultural heroes for practicing this way of life. That's become increasingly less common in the state. Broadcaster actually gives these awards to the best herders in in the nation. Please tell me you went to a best herder award ceremony absolutely went to a buzzer award ceremony. The championship herder. Who I met in the province was this man named near Goo Davidoff and I talked to him right after he got his award? Lord of host was also he was practical. Nature is unpredictable. It's harder there's less rain. Animals can't get fat but if we prepare extra hey. We can overcome such natural disasters. We don't have to be afraid this spring their animal's gave birth to hundreds of babies. I went back to visit during the birthing season in March. This pen is just full like a hundred lambs. Just these tiny little cotton balls near to make us feel better about this. Do you mind no. I just don't appreciate being manipulated. I wanted to show you the opposite right so not death life and what it signals for the next generation of herders. Who are continuing to do this? I'm picking up what you're putting down on. Thank you all right. I'm Lequan thank you for bringing us the story.

If you haven't listened to those just going listen them immediately and you'll realize the magnitude of the fact that this individual is sitting here alive talking to me is just an absolute miracle so goalless mature three to four where you can hear about Dick's experiences as a SOG Zog team leader and team member in Vietnam where we left off was home from Vietnam and now checking in as a ranger instructor which for you was a great deal because you have the opportunity to take the lessons and you learned teach them to the Rangers and also home them for your own experience because you figured you were eight months away from going back the Vietnam yes so this is my opportunity to get ready and so I could be more focused next town and I could do a better job now when you said eight months what does it. What was that based on? What was that when you say I was probably going back over an eight months? What was that based on? At that time that was about to turn around rate. You you come back from Vietnam they give you a little time to recover an eight months or so. You're going to get orders to go back again. And you're now did you make captain yet or you still on my captors. Now you may captaining the you must be looking around the guys that you deployed with and that you knew I mean you must be missing a lot of guys now. I mean wounded killed or missing in action. This has got to be just a tremendous number number for you when I when I look at the ones that that I knew that I consider teammates. I mean we did things together. We knew each other. I I have a list that I run for thirty five names. Those are just the ones that I considered. You know my personal friends and teammates now it CNN. We lost a lot more people in that. I just I didn't know him very yeah well But just the time I was there you know I got thirty five games for and you got to have that in your back of your mind when you're training these young rangers. You know what they're getting into even if it's not sog you know you want to prepare them to the best of your ability for what they're interface. Yeah because I knew that time I mean they were going to Vietnam. I mean there. There was no doubt especially they made it through Ranger School I mean they were going so the the question for me was in addition to the personal things that I wanted to do like improve my skills. What could it do for these guys to help them have a higher chance of surviving? Once they get there so I can't even made my mission so you got you got the normal instruction from Arranger Instructor A-plus then I edit other things on and I said you gotTa do this learn how to do. This is how you talk. This is how you lead so they. They got a lot of extra coaching training whenever I led to a group And I just. I felt responsible to do that. What were some of the leadership was that you focused on teaching? The young Rangers Some of it was you know you got to be accountable and these guys. You got to be accountable. You've gotta take responsibility ability. If you're gonNA lead them you got to make sure you know what you're doing you gotta be physically fit. You gotta be mentally. You need to know the tactics techniques you need to enforce them. You need to encourage them. You need to build a team. You need to take care of them. You need to know everybody on your team team if you've got a platoon. You need to know everybody in the potassium and at that time. The army used to issue a little. Oh Green Notebook pocket-size notebook hardback. That you put in your pocket and you know I tell you need to have people in here you know. In in peacetime you need to know who they are. No something about him so you can relate to him when they were having problems and how to train them. You know the best know what they're weak areas are for how you can build them up. 'cause you're accountable for them they're your people and you're the guy that's the the leader you need to be the first one out here and You know for me. I'm not going to ask you to do something I won't do. I'M NOT GONNA go to you. Say Hop out the door. They are applying here. If I'm not going to do it I know I tend to to do more follow me. You know. I'm going out there. I'M GONNA do it too and I'm going to set the example for you. This is how I want you to do it. And so trying to get that through through to him and and trying to get through in terms of think of yourself as a professional. Thank about your medical doctor Dr Everyday. You should be reading learning studying getting better every technique that you know You should be trying to improve it. Every day is about practice Whatever it is you're doing a ask yourself? Is there somebody else better than you than you need to be practicing. Yeah you gotta get as good as the best. You want to be that person and you don't get there by just wishing hoping you gotta get out and take the action some of the things that you're going to be doing particularly if we if we think ranger special forces seal all steps a mindset some mindset you gotta think like that you can be in the greatest physical condition in the world all but if you don't have the mindset you can't do it and you guys are already seeing here Rangers go. How many of your buddies have already dropped out? When I went through ranger school we started out with two hundred and forty eight people? When we finished we had one hundred and seventy five actually make it to the end of the course? Seventy five others got a ranger down. Rest Emden so they're only seventy five rangers produced and it was mindset. It wasn't it. They were bigger stronger faster. They had the mental capacity to keep going on one meal today. You three hours of sleep at night. Keep pushing and still be able to think cognitively enough to put together a good tactical plan communicate doc plan execute that plan And it takes work and you need to be the leader so people follow you so why. Why whatever it is that? I'm going to do out there tonight. Expect you to do. I want to be doing it to the most of my ability. If you're going to jump out of an airplane airplane with a rope tied onto you to pull the parachute out. I'm going out from thirty thousand feet Halo. And that's that's what I do if you have to have you've Atlantic on the size of a football field to get into. I'll cut it down to a third of that and do it in the dark. Are you want you to say it can be done better if you beat me more power to you. Catch now what you've done just told me I need to practice. But YOU'RE GONNA make it more for the part that you said about being a professional and when I talked young seals or young marines or soldiers airmen sailors whoever you know our say I would say the euro professional and then I. This is your life this right here is your life and everything else is secondary Mary to what you're doing right here and you need to study. You need to learn you need to read. You need to practice. You need to rehearse and you need to do that all the time. Because you're never going to be good enough and you need to make this right here your life You got a couple other notes in here. One of them says Staff Sergeant Shelley. What's that all about when I when I went through Ranger School in the mountain of as there was African American Ranger Instructor. There Call Sergeant Shelly. Hard core hard core dude. Rarely did he pass any went on patrol and I had him. He graded me one time and I passed Uh when I came back from Vietnam and went to the department I ended up in the mountains. He ended up on my team. So now I've got the famous Sergeant Shelly on my team and I thought man this is go. We go on patrol. We're on grading a platoon leader. He's growing grading sergeant. It's eighteen degrees outside Chelsea shows up. Could you got fatigue shirt on. But he's got his sleeves rolled up and said where's your Parker Parker gloves. I don't need glass is eighteen degrees. He said okay. I'm fine hard dude. And then do we. We're out on patrol. The snow's almost knee deep with dragon. The Rangers through it. They're tired to call and You know so I call the next patrol leader next person who's GonNa take over the the protein and ranger take after mouth and I want you to show me ten digit coordinates to where we're standing right now. Could you gotTa know where you're starting from. And he kind of looks at me and said take your map out. I don't have them out sir. Why don't you have a map? Said well sorry. Shelley took my map when we stopped back there and we had to go ahead man because of the guy getting the frostbite He took my out then. Go Ask sergeant challenge to give you your mouth that community that I can't do that so he built a bar with my out as it. Okay then you need redefined somebody for here gonNA loan your mouth. You're going to be the patrol leader. You gotTa have a map back then. You could do a lot of things that you can't do now. It's hard to shelley would take onions. Cut them in half rubble rubble all over him. He would eat garlic taking some Kentucky Fried Chicken with him in the bag and so when it was dark and the Rangers students you only had to feed them once every three days back then. They got to call her and resupplies or if they call them for resupplies that they didn't ask expert food they just got to have an issue So they were always hungry and you get under a Poncho at night. Sorry Shelley would say show me show me where we are on the map and the range would start to porn out where we're at and nobody under the Poncho can breathe. Shelly smells so bad. Egypt secondary breath. Their eyes are watering and the guy starts the point to where they arslan mouth and he dropped his chicken leg on his finger tactile chicken. I don't you dare Lick your finger not show me where you are. I mean he do things like that to a mall town and he was he was very good very hard And then as I started to develop a similar reputation they would hear about it forbidding and when it got to the the mountain face and Shelly I would walk in and take over the patrol for the next twenty four hours and we'd introduce ourselves you could see the looks on their face face all no one's bad enough. We owed them at the same time. No one's GonNa pass but Yeah I mean shelly. Celli Super Guy Really Smart and got another name down here. Bob Howard Bob Howard Melewar winter into use sog down at Khantun wounded like thirteen times eight purple hearts.
Climate change: Melting Arctic ice
"Arctic Sea. Ice is one one of the most dramatic indicators of the change in climate some months the ice cover on the Arctic Ocean is about half of what it was decades ago and its thickness has shrunk substantially changes in the ice may also mean a host of other changes in the Arctic system and around the globe to better understand the scientists. I just have frozen an icebreaker alongside and Arctic ice flow that they will absorb for a whole year. And that's where our reporter Ravenna chaotic. Caught up with them out on an the ice floe about five degrees from the North Pole. A bunch of scientists are setting up equipment. It's part of a project called mosaic or the multidisciplinary drifting observatory for the study of Arctic climate climate. And the primary question. They're trying to answer is what are the causes of diminishing Arctic ice and what are the consequences ocean physicists. Tim Stanton stand surrounded by boxes of tools and equipment next to a hole in the ice about fifteen miles from where the mosaics chef is frozen in. Good here dry hairdryer. Well it's a trickle. Would he he got frizzy here. That's for sure. It's about eighteen degrees Fahrenheit and the heat gun is for warming up electrical connectors actors on a science buoy. Stanton is in the middle of a grueling eight hour process to install the buoy. It'll operate independently out here throughout the year. Collecting team data from all sorts of scientific bells and whistles that hang below it in the water flux package mounts on and that's what Beige is the transport of heat. Salt Mamane plugged back in the water column. Here's why Stanton's interested in those things as more sea ice melts in the summertime. It's contributing fresher water to the top of the ocean the salty ocean water which sits lower. Because it's more dense can create a barrier that prevents the fresher water from going down if that top water is trapped near the surface surface. Stanton thinks that can absorb a lot more heat from the sun and lead to even more melting of the ice you can get these Frisch WOM- liars that with a little bit of wind comes along. Does a little bit of mixing really mounts the heck out of the is. He thinks this might play an important role in why the disappearing as fast does it is while Stanton is asking questions about things that are going on. Below the ice other scientists are looking at things going. On above it like Jesse Cremation. WHO's out on the ice testing gene? A device that collects tiny particles from the atmosphere called aerosols. Ampler to say no. We're not talking about the ones in hairspray. Aerosol balls can be dust pollen or fungi and they're the seeds that clouds need to grow and in the Arctic scientists thing that they can also come from tiny organisms in the water like bacteria. Algae less ice on the ocean could mean more aerosols getting blown from the water into the atmosphere and CD more clouds by hypothesis from open water sources. We get generation of these particles from microbes and the ocean. There's a lot that signed to still WANNA find out about clouds in the Arctic. But one thing they know is that they're important for regulating leading temperature like a thermostat depending on the season whether the clouds are over water or ice and the features of the clouds they can wind up cooling or warming the earth below slowdown that affects. How much heat can basically help melt the ice or it can actually reflect sunlight from the CIA so it has a big role in controlling? How much we we have here creaming and Stanton to among hundreds of scientists from different disciplines? Who are trying to better understand? How different parts of this changing region work how? The atmosphere interacts the CIS how the ocean interacts with the ice The ecosystem the biogeochemical processes. That's Matthew shoop an atmospheric scientist and one of the coordinators of the expedition addition. So why do scientists need to know all this. This whole project is aimed at improving our models. When shoop says models he means the computer simulation and scientists use to get estimates for things like how much the earth could warm in the next fifty years the better? You reflect reality in the simulations the better prediction you'll get but because so little is known about the Arctic system. shoop says that the predictions for how it will respond to climate. Change vary a lot. The Arctic is a place where the models agree. The least so that tells us that we're missing something improving. The models will help forecast things like when the Arctic Ocean might have. Its first ice free summer how quickly the globe is going to warm. As as a whole and how the melting greenland ice sheet will add to global sea level rise by observing. How all the little pieces of the system fit together over the next year scientists hope they it can bring that big picture into clear? Focus for N._p._R.. News I'm Ravenna. Kinik in the central Arctic Ocean.

'There Are 5 Elections in November and 3 of These Are Great Jupiter Elections.'
"There are five elections for November and three of these are excellent Jupiter elections. This is especially important because November is the last month that that Jupiter is in his domicile until twenty twenty two. So it's really our last chance to grab excellent talismanic opportunities for creation of wealth. Good fortune growth of personal virtues such as justice and wisdom. We also have a fixed. Start Housman for Alpha Kappa who provides friendship and elevation through friends and there's also a twelfth house Lunar Mansion which is for improvement of harvest and plans and also empowerment of those who support us or need our help this issue as do do all issues feature is a magical lesson and this month. The lesson is about planetary days in hours. This is a wonderful way to time your elections without being very advanced in in your astrological elections skills. But it's quite powerful. I have spoken about it before on this podcast and we are working on it in my magical elections classic couple right now. The students have really connected with it doing weekly planetary rituals based on the day and hour of the planets. The other big news in this magical election issue is the introduction of the new section called discarded elections it features upcoming elections that may look good but actually contain significant problems. It can serve you in two always one. If you want a double check on your own elections that you have found and two if you want to check up on the charts of premade talismans. You're thinking of buying. It goes without saying that if you are buying astrological Talisman there should always be an astrological chart available and you should check it before buying just because it's for sale doesn't mean it's good or helpful or won't cause you problems so always check the chart of a premade Talisman and the section is one way that you can do that you you can always have an astrological magician. Check the chart of your planned purchase. And it's worthwhile making that small investment before you spend a lot of money on a talisman especially expensive offensive jewelry talismans. The free election for October is the Housman that will use Jupiter and he is of course in one of his novels Sagittarius. This election is for November. Twenty Third Twenty nineteen one thirteen pm to one forty three. PM set for Los Angeles California and wherever you are in the world so you will want to get eighteen degrees Sagittarius on the ascendant in your location for the beginning of the election but keep an eye on the moon which should be applying textile L. Venus the incense using your ritual according to the traditional sources will be you can have saffron sandalwood. Musk Camphor Mace the image is a handsome man sitting on an eagle. But as I always say if you have a strong command of planetary symbolism you can always create your own image composed of Jupiter her symbols that resonates with you and your goals emotionally whichever image you choose. This is the image. You'd want to write on or engrave on your talisman. This image is very important because through the eyes enters your being an act on the Seoul. This month's election will work for a paper Talisman or a verbal petition or a prayer there are better Jupiter elections in November that are included in this issue of magically elections. But I wanted to discuss this one because I think while it's good would there are some caveats that may not make it as strong as we would want and that would not make it worthwhile for a metal or stone talisman which of course lasts a very long longtime so the medal of Jupiter just for future references tin. There's also a yellow Sapphire amethyst but the really important important part of this election that I wanted to highlight is Venus Jupiter conjunction on the Mid Heaven and the Moon is on the blessed star Speaker which is applying dissect style Venus and and then Jupiter after that the one downside of this election which made me recommended only for a paper. Talisman is that the moon does not have very much light she is waning and has only a little light left. Normally a waning moon by itself isn't a problem. But this time if you have just a little sliver of a crescent like here it is a problem so I would not commit this election to anything really permanent like a stone or metal as always the spirits to evoke are the angels of Jupiter's hitters at Kia or his intelligence Yo feel and his spirit his smile his colors that you can incorporate in the Tasman or in the room or both are going to be see blue sea green and purple and as always I welcome your feedback if you do make this talisman all right now. It's time I'm from my conversation with Ryan Butler about what types of magic are safe and unsafe. which should be especially helpful for beginners? Who I feel a little bit anxious or uncertain about about where to start with astrological magic and don't want to accidentally curse themselves here? We go one of the things that the main thing will really focus goes on today with Ryan is. We'll talk about safe planetary magic or safe astrological magic. I should say and maybe we'll talk about some unsafe Ask logical magic as well because that's always fun but I know that's a big concern for beginners. You know what's safe what isn't I mean. Magic certainly can be kind of scary and it gets a lot of SORTA very dramatic representations in media so. I figured this was a good opportunity to pick somebody else's brain who has a lot of experience experience with doing astrological magic both the safe and possibly the unsaved and share experiences with you. All Right Ryan. So what would you say is a is a good safe practice or maybe even before that. What do we consider safe versus unsafe magic? Do you have a personal definition turnover. Yeah and I think that's something that Kind of changes or varies from person to person and I think a lot of it has to do with how risk averse somebody is So like you're not just in in magic but even in my you know regular regular everyday life or even in like investing is just like how much risk are you willing to take any any time you as like an astrological magician especially Alexa for Talisman or petitioner anything like that year assessing risk risk basically As as super funding fabulous as the sounds But you're assessing risk of not only of canvas election support. What is I'm trying to I do but also how likely is it that the you know that that the reverse will happen or some unforseen consequence So a lot of it is just how. How risky do you want to be in that something? That's going to differ from person to person based on you know temperament earth analogy but he's also like a amount on of responsibility. One has if you are apparent your your risk aversion is probably gonNA be higher than somebody who doesn't have dependents. It's or something like that like something or somebody that whatever you're doing could realistically also affect because they're insane household or something like that. I'm so for me me. I'm not a parent but I am a parent and so just like that is usually the end. It sounds kind of silly. I guess but usually what I run my stuff by is just like okay. How likely is this thing going to be able to? You know effect or you know hurt or just whatever Otherwise touch upon Mike. Pets is usually the way that is usually kinda like my first methods so like Sixth House House stuff in charts. I'd pay kind of special attention to just because that's my living situation or less. So can I ask a personal question Ryan. Yes if there's a sixth house versus seven thousand fiction which wants who gets yes swelled so to answer that question probably the seventh house because the seventh house could tell me something's wrong. Yes theoretically theoretically. That's right. He has the power to communicate rates yet. Investigate all right well. Now that we know everything about Ryan I think that's actually a great dive into this situation and a really practical way end because I think it's important to remember especially as beginner is there is no perfect chart right and there are certainly better choice than others. But no chart is going to be completely -pletely one hundred percent problem free. Would you say that's True Ryan. I think that's fair. The worst you can remain the best you can do is minimize those. There's certainly a lot of minimisation you can do. especially if you have a little bit of time to play with like you don't need an election right now but just recognize that there will be some issues with any tart and the the question is is going to impact some house and some planet and so the question is what houses in your life are better able to take that strain versus assist those that are more vulnerable and accurately points toward the fact that. Yeah if you have pets. There's they're probably can't really control their fate the way that the person could right so that's certainly one calculus that you could do but obviously it's going to be very individual and personal so you have to think about what in your life again is better able to withstand planetary issues even if they're hopefully minor but just recognized that they will have to go somewhere and and It doesn't mean that every talisman will bring you problems not by a long shot but again just recognize that again as Ryan said there is so amount of risk in your sort of assessing thing where you want to allocate that in your life
How Does Venus Work?
"After the moon the Venus is the second brightest natural object in the night sky partially because this planet is covered by reflective clouds that make it is an optical telescopes can't penetrate eight with the Venetian surface hidden from view generations of fiction writers used to speculate wild about the mysterious terrain beneath those clouds for example Tarzan Creator Edgar Rice burroughs portrayed Venus as a world with lush forests in our boreal cities in a nineteen eighty-four pulp novel but then science intervened B eight at Venus's habitable pretty much imploded during the Cold War in Nineteen fifty-six Radio Telescope observations showed that the planet had surfaced temperatures in excess of six hundred and eight eighteen degrees Fahrenheit that's three hundred twenty six degrees Celsius and believe it or not those readings were kind of low we now know the average surface temperature on Nisa blistering eight hundred sixty four degrees Fahrenheit or four hundred sixty two Celsius it's the hottest planet in our solar system even though mercury is closer to the Sun on the face of Venus the atmospheric pressure is crushingly extreme and lead would melt into a puddle but as hellish as this place sounds actually has in common with Earth the two worlds are quite similar in size if you were to stuff venus inside our planet matric doll style it would occupy roughly eighty six percent end of earth total volume Venus has earth beaten in some key regards though earth displays a slight midsection bulge being wider around its equator than it is from one pole to the other conversely Venus is almost a perfect sphere what gives well when a massive celestial body like a star or planet spins quickly around its axis centrifugal force will give it a more dramatic bulge around its equator however Venus has an ultra slow rotation speed it takes the equivalent of two hundred and forty-three earth days for Venus to complete one full rotation around its axis and only two hundred twenty five earth days to finish a new lap around the Sun so in other words a day on Venus lasts longer than Vanesian year does and get this from our self centered perspective Venus spins backward word most of the planets in the solar system rotate from west to east Uranus and Venus Buck that trend on those two worlds the sun appears to rise in the West and set in the East nobody knows how that came to pass. Astronomers think Venus us to move in a counterclockwise direction like Earth but at some point it's been I have reversed alternatively perhaps the sun's Gravitational influence or a collision with a large object caused the entire planet to flip upside down in December of nineteen sixty two Venus became the first planet to get a fly by visit from a manmade spacecraft exploiting brief window of opportunity NASA's Mariner two probes studied this world up close from distances as near as twenty one thousand miles that's about thirty four thousand kilometers onboard instruments taught us a great deal mariner two firms that Venus does not have an earth like magnetic field and it recorded surface temperatures within the expected range a young Carl Sagan helped design the mariner to probe yes successfully lobbied to have the space craft fitted with a camera because close up pictures of Venus might quote answer questions that we were too dumb to even pose by the time Mariner to launched scientists already knew that there were high levels of carbon dioxide in the vision atmosphere and that composition should give us pause carbon dockside makes up a whopping ninety six percent of Venus's atmosphere scientists attribute this to a runaway greenhouse effect theoretically the planet used to have a more temperate climate that could have remained stable for billions of years back then oceans of liquid water may have covered its surface though we don't know for sure things changed as are growing son became hotter any oceans would have evaporated during this time astronomers think much of the carbon dioxide invasion rocks leached out and traveled guy word while the atmosphere changed it got better at trapping heat creating a vicious cycle that worsens the problem inevitably temperatures spiked and stayed since our own planet has a major greenhouse gas problem Venus could offer us important insights regarding climate change but sending probes to explore it has always presented major challenges on Venus the surface gravity is comparable to what you and I experience on earth what's not comparable is that atmospheric Asher which is ninety two times greater on the face of Venus than it is here faced with extreme temperatures and high pressure it's no wonder that manmade objects don't last long long in the planet's environment when the Soviet venire thirteen probe landed on Venus in Nineteen eighty-two it stayed intact for record setting one hundred and twenty seven minutes before it was destroyed mind you this wasn't the USSR's first Rodeo previous Venero spacecraft's successfully visited the planet's atmosphere and touched down on its outer crest brief though their visits were these probes captured the first ever photographs of the Venetian surface Nasr's Magellan spacecraft provided further insights has it mapped ninety eight percent of the planet's face all in all Venus boasts more than sixteen thousand volcanoes and volcanic features but we don't know of any these are still active highland plateaus deep canyons and meteorite impact craters have also been discovered there although Venus's about four point six billion years old crest is thought to be much younger with an estimated age of just three hundred to six hundred million years Venus lacks tectonic plates as we know them on earth nonetheless Sunday August think that upwelling magma occasionally recycle sections of the crust long before it was an object scientific study or of Edgar Rice burroughs. goals Venus mesmerized our ancestors bright and beautiful the cloud adorned planet derives its name from the Roman Goddess of love into mathematicians mapped it's progress across the sky and Galileo took detailed notes about its moon like phases somehow knowing that Venus is a stifling hot house doesn't diminish its allure with every new discovery inspires curiosity aw
"eighteen degrees" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"The road. No matter priority. Whether it's the quickest route or the safest, I'll let you know what's happening and where it is on the tens every morning and after Dale WTMJ. WTMJ news time coming up now on eight forty one time to take a look at the WTMJ five day forecast, rather interesting one stump put away that winter gear. Just yet. We are starting out this Sunday morning with temperatures in the teens under fair skies. Today will be really a nice nice sunny day, but it's going to get really cold only. Highs in the upper teens Beverly cold air will arrive later tonight. When temperatures will dip below zero wind chill values will range between minus thirty and minus twenty on Monday and Tuesday record breaking cold temperatures will be possible on Monday and Tuesday, expect mostly sunshine to partly cloudy skies with highs near nine above on Monday and fifteen degrees on Tuesday. We'll start to warm up a bit on Wednesday, mostly sunshine in the forecast for Wednesday. Highs in the lower twenties chances for snow will return next Thursday and Friday as what they describe as a potent area of low pressure could be developing across the plains bringing increasing chances were accumulating snow in southeast Wisconsin. Highs will range from the upper twenty s to the lower thirty so wind chill advisory by the way is in effect boys and girls from ten pm this evening to ten AM Monday for all of southeast Wisconsin.

Globalization At Davos: What Happened?
"All know, President Trump and his entire delegation pulled out because the government was shut down. But wasn't just Trump. French president Emmanuel Macron Theresa May British Prime minister as well as Justin Trudeau of Canada all did not come in large part because they were dealing with some kind of domestic issues. Right. It's Pacific like an anti global or anti elite sentiment there in their in their country. Wasn't the right time to go to this event for them. Okay. Not nothing. Good in it. Okay. Let's talk about those who did show up and what they had to say. So there was one group who are definitely sort of proudly nationalist, right? They saying nationalism is good. We can't trade with. Others. Those terms are good for us in that camp. I would put newly elected Brazilian president j scenario he gave the opening address at devas, and I would put US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, he despite the shutdown of government did appear at Davos, though, he didn't come himself. He came by video link beamed in on a huge screen in the blue auditorium, eighteen degrees Fahrenheit here in Washington. DC see the Lincoln Memorial to my back. So while I'm not here in person. I at least feel like I'm in Davos, where the weather so there is the secretary kind of warming up the crowd. But you know, when he said things he said things that I think we've all heard before. But felt kind of jarring in the Davos context, like he said nations matter no international body can stand up for people as well as their own leaders can strong borders or Kita strong nations. Definitely a little friction with the, you know, the Davos aesthetic tending via video link also kind of a minimal effort going on there. Oh, brother. Okay. So we heard from we did hear from secretary of state Mike Pompeo from the US who's next to the very next day. Same auditory him China's vice president one to shun took the stage, and he took the opposite tech. Really? He he basically said globalization's good. In fact, he said, you know, you guys you western countries. Will you wanted us to open up and provide cheap labor for your goods, and we did that and that also allowed us to advance? And now our new middle class can be customers for your products. You know, kinda give a textbook pro globalization argument. That's fascinating, by the way. Because at the moment, the US is in a trade war with China. And the main complaint is that China is not play by the globalization rules that incense China has for example in the past tinkered with its currency to make its products cheaper in American products, more expensive and more recently, China has essentially forced US companies to give up their technology to Chinese companies if those US companies. Want to do business in China? So the vice president was actually asked directly about this because secretary of state Mike Pompeo brought up the forcible transfer and the way he responded was not with a denial. It was with a fable delis a story of a devil and demon. So when the devil is eight inches tall and the demand might be ten inches toll. Okay. I'm I'm hooked like I'm in. I'm curious. So the translation of the devil in the demon kind of got us confused. I called my colleague Jess Jiang at a rough translation podcast. She is fluent in Mandarin. She explained that this is a reference that traces back to a famous line in in a classic Chinese novel. And the line basically says that the bad will always sort of stand taller than the good. So won't you Sean, the the vice president used that line to make this analogy two policemen and thieves so this is like the relationship between the thief and the policemen. And remember he's answering a question about China's theft of America. Intellectual property, sixty percent of the thieves if they could be caught and things stolen could be recovered than we'll have significantly fewer thieves. But if there are no Steve at all, I believe that will be too good to be true, Greg. What's he saying? I mean, it sounds to me like what he's saying. Is you can't stop all every and for the US demand that is not going to happen. And those trade talks, of course, happening this week. So those are sort of setting the negotiation terms, but also what he's saying is that we don't have to follow Washington's rules on this your trading with us. We do what's good for our innovation? What you define his theory. We might define as something's beneficial for an opportunity for progress. Right. Okay. So that is so that's China who's next. So here's Shinzo obey prime minister of Japan. He emphasizes something different. He says he wants there to be strong economic growth. He's very pro-trade pro globalization. But he tells the. Globalization in Japan that's going to be good for lots of Japanese workers. The rate of female labor participation has hit sixty seven percent. An all time high for Japan and higher than say in the US. Interesting. He quite pointedly says higher than in the US. Yeah. And you heard the audience laughing at that. I think one thing about Deva's year was that a lot of the leaders were trying to show how they're capitalism is different than the United States. It's not subject to some of the ills that America other western countries are experiencing because of globalization, like income inequality, and even German Chancellor Angela Merkel was saying, well, even Germany's capitalism is different than Americans are trying to because they care data privacy or New Zealand's descendant ardor n-, the youngest female head of state in the world was saying will, you know, her government is gonna start caring about the well-being of its citizens. All these ways in which they're saying, yes, we wanna be globalized that we wanna be pro-trade. But we don't wanna look like some of the western countries that are suffering from that. Yeah. In greg. What was your sort of big takeaway from the meeting because it sounded like rather than trying to make globalization work better between? Countries. A lot of these representatives were sense just there to boast that their approach to globalization was the right one for them. I think we are in this odd moment right now that the leaders were responding to where there is a ton of anti-globalists sentiment or anti globalization sentiment in one point that Klaus shop the head of the World Economic Forum made in his opening remarks was that difference between globalization globalism. So globalization means that we're all connected by technology and business, you could argue there's no turning that back, but globalism means that you're going to be beholden to a world order as opposed to a national one. And that's something that I would say everybody's trying to run away from. They don't wanna be dirty loveless. Great warner. Thanks, man. Thank you. Thanks again to Greg Warner of the rough
