"ethiopian plateau" Discussed on The Darin Olien Show

"It's that time of the week for another fatal convenience. This is a bite-sized segment that addresses some of society's fatal conveniences down the steps. You can take to avoid becoming a victim of them. I Define fatal conveniences as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to tap water shampoo sunglasses food. I dive into the Hidden Truths Behind Some of our everyday choices that could not only be harming us, but even killing us. So let's Dive In Welcome everybody to the Darin olien show special episode again of a fatal convenience. Thanks for tuning in. Thanks for being here. Kill the Messenger on this one. Please don't send me any negative comments. I'm kind of being the little cheeky on that. But at the same time, I'm just going to go into a little bit of this fatal convenience, which is caffeine slash coffee. So I'm focusing a little bit on coffee and the caffeine what it is and there's a negative side to it. So I just wanted to bring it up. It is a fatal convenience. There's many reasons. I don't drink it, but there's also many benefits to it too. So I don't want to be completely a Debbie Downer, but I just want to bring your attention to age. Think so you're informed. That's what this is all about. You don't have to change certainly don't have to change for me and I get it the morning Ritual Coffee and the smell of it off the dopamine effect that is literally produced before you actually drink the coffee just the ritual alone should be centered and acknowledged job in any sort of consistent ritual in your life. So the coffee ritual the dopamine effect before you're actually even home sipping. The coffee is very powerful. Let me put a little asterisk by that right? So let me just bring you a little bit that lesson the culture the same story around coffee is phenomenal. Obviously, it comes from the Coffee Bean, but it's really a seed. And and you know, I love coffee. I do. love it. I love y'all know maybe you've many of you heard me talk about the Alchemy between the coffee seed and the fruit when dried together. They're one of the greatest neurodegenerative bdnf brain-derived neurotropic factor support of the brain, but you're not talking about a lot of caffeine very very small amount when it comes to that. So I love coffee. It is a medicinal herbs and it does have a lot of great benefits. So I just want to say that before you turn this episode off just need to be aware of a few things. Now, let's just get into I typically don't do story off on this but I think that's so fascinating. We're talking about the 16th century. Now, there's a little argument around where they're actually originated, but it looks log. To the Ethiopian Plateau was one of the was probably the origin of where it came from. So the legend has it that in that Ethiopian Plateau their wage or the herders of goats and they observed really the effect but then when they observe the goats that we're eating these berries now, listen, I've eaten a lot of coffee fruit Berry and it's delicious. The problem is that when you harvest it goes rancid right away, that's why they take it away from the seed wage then they roast obviously the coffee and everything else and just discard this beautiful fruit. So these so The Story Goes a legend goes that the that goats were eating them berries and the herders would actually observe them not sleeping at night. So there were just full of energy running around and of course then that kind of moved through and they immediately started eating chewing eating the fruit eating the bean and realized that this off an incredible stimulant which is then kind of spawned the first coffee houses in the 16th century incredible, right then, you know, it moves throughout Europe and about 1615 the local clergy of Venice condemned and they actually said that this was a bitter Edge invention of Satan corset everything that makes someone feel good the church poopoose because apparently the Muslims took took on this drink straight off because of all the benefits and then Pope Clemente 8th, but was asked to intervene and you actually drank some of this and he bath Ties to kind of as they call it cheat the devil and then it was accepted. So the clergy came in baptized this amazing Elixir the gave people energy and proof. It was resolved. If it's Satanism crazy, right? So, you know, they caffeine coffee interesting thing. But the thing that you don't realize is is caffeine is an actual pesticide that hundreds of plants use obviously coffee is the the most widely known of the caffeine producing. This is a seed it also obviously in leaves green tea and certain fruits have caffeine in it, but the most recognized is coffee. So this is a natural pesticide that smaller insects and everything else that they actually eat the seed money. Fruit and then they get paralyzed and died. So it keeps it keeps the you know, everything in life wants to keep life moving. So that's what these plants have created sort of created a a a neurotoxin to smaller animals and insects and that is caffeine. So you're actually taking in a poison off the Another Story shows that the sufis Apparently used it in the Fourteen hundreds to stay awake. If the sufis of of Yemen used to stay awake as they're doing their Sufi dances and rituals to stay up all night kind of thing. So there you go started in the Sufi tradition and the Islamic tradition and or the Ethiopian, but we do know for twelve hundred years. We've been using and consuming cough and what is.

"IRA Plato broadcasting from the studios of KQED in San Francisco later in the hour the EPA put out a proposal that the agency says will strengthen transparency in the science studies they used to make policies and regulations but researchers say it could take the science out of the process we'll get to that later but first finally the world has an Ebola vaccine the vaccine developed by Merck has been used in hundreds of thousands of people in the current outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo and it showed enough promise that to European regulators say it's ready for market joining me now to talk about that and other selected short subjects in science is Ryan Mandel bound science writer at his moto in New York good to have you back they find that yes it's great to be here I'm a sit in your seat here in New York office people more let's let's talk about is this is great news and proved Ebola vaccine yeah so this is obviously something it's very exciting the hundred thousand people who were vaccinated in in trials only three percent develop the ball from back in results released by the W. H. O. in April so this is important I mean five years ago the able outbreak I killed on over a thousand ten thousand people so it's it's it's quite bad so it's gets great actually see a vaccine coming to market and so it's already been used on a trial basis right yep that's correct it was it sat back a that was the trial and then I'm sorry so yeah I mean it's it's if it's been very exciting yeah so will we will wait for it to come out and get ready for everybody else right so it's gonna be available in me in mid twenty twenty but I think it's important to note that vaccines are only part of the problem and then the year's other subtypes of the ball the local communities might be resistance the vaccines so we're sort of it's gonna have we have to wait for this to play out to see really how it's accepted in communities okay let's move on to something I know you love and I have I think we share that love and that's weird physics stories and this week you have one about detecting dark matter using anti matter that's full of mind blown my headline for the story was good antimatter be the portal into the dark universe the duty to tell us so tell us what you mean by that yeah so you might know dark matter makes up most of the mass of the universe to kind of build the universe's scaffolding but I we've never seen it directly and so right now scientists at CERN I have this experiments performing precision measurements on anti protons which is the anti matter partner of dot of of the protons so the anti matter version of the proton and what they're looking to see is whether the anti protons are wobbling a little bit differently and they expect as well as differently from regular protons and that they hope might be the signature of Axios which is this this dark matter candidate is light dark matter particles and and does so how can they prove this is there any way to test this out well what they do is they actually this is this is surprising to some people there's an anti matter factory at CERN at it's called the anti proton decelerate and they actually produce anti matter the slow it down and then they trap it in these magnetic traps so that they could then sort of pro bitten and perform high precision measurements on it yeah I saw the movie and way traps I don't know if the movie it was it quite as good as certain ones that sort of explaining what's going on so is it how hard is it to make into matters in in the hard enough to make it on its own why use that to to detect the dark matter well as a United spoken on the show before that right now it's it's just really tough for the dark matter search because the most popular candidates for dark matter have not been seen yet despite lots of effort and so they're kind of going into these a little more needs a little stranger candidates for dark matter the ACSI on being one of them and the hope here is that maybe dark matter interacts differently with the anti matter than it does with regular matter and what that would actually do is potentially provide an explanation as to why there's so much more matter than anti matter in the universe that's because a lot of the explanations are just not holding up and have to find new physics new ideas that's right there's just a lot of work that is yet to be done and we and so for her all the work that's been done is not revealed anything fruitful unfortunately now your next story is about mysterious oxygen on Mars so do you remember last year the mysterious methane on Mars I yes zones there is nothing story so it's almost like a sequel to that you know curiosity is sitting in the gale crater right now on Mars and it's been sampling the gas in the Martian atmosphere as the seasons change and so today or not today this past week they've released five years of earth data just three years of Mars data collecting these gases changing over the seasons and there's way too much oxygen in the Martian spring and summer and not enough oxygen in the winter so what what's going on so where is this as mysterious as the methane because they they haven't than explanation they thought might explain it they have an explanation for the oxygen this is about as mysterious as the methane so they've got a couple I mean people have thrown out ideas you know maybe there is carbon dioxide that is do you know breaking up into oxygen or water H. two O. is breaking up and oxygen but if it was water it would require way more water than they know about on Mars if it was carbon dioxide than it would be a CarMax I. decays we too slowly to explain it and so they're just kind of stock and they don't know what's going on so they're just hoping that other scientists join the hunt and figure out the the mysterious source and sink for the oxygen on Mars and of course we we all love to believe am sure as the scientist to that these are signals of either present life for past life you know I'm not going to tell you that it's aliens but I'm not telling you it's not a Ellie and I'm not talking about you know intelligent aliens I'm talking about rudimentary you know kind of stuff we might find at the bottom of our oceans living possibly on Mars sure sure sure yeah maybe who knows okay I you reported moving on to another story this week about the Nile river being a portal to the underworld that is the headline that I came up with but I do think this one is really cool so there's this debate about the Nile river about how old is so some hear you say that it's five to six million years old that originally flew flight yeah flowed west and then next tectonic action pushed at north there's another theory that it is thirty million years old so my scientists have modeled this thirty million year old theory and basically came up with that it would perfectly match this strange mantle convection in the mantle being the layer beneath the crust that the Nile river might be tracing the behavior of the manhole and have been doing so for the past thirty million years sounds is so in in that is that the reason the wait why it flows the way it does yes so it would might be happening is that the mantle would be pushing up land sort of new Ethiopian plateau and pushing down lands near the mouth of the Nile in the Mediterranean and it would have started doing this perhaps forty to thirty million years ago and then continue doing so and the Nile would have just continued to trace it and actually there it's this is mainly based on modeling but there is some scientific evidence here for example there seems to be rocks at the mouth of the Nile that are thirty million years old that sort of match these volcanic rocks at the Ethiopian plateau so it is and it's it's a it's a theory no one's saying you know you have any idea why it is taking so long we've known about the now and we were pretty good geologist has it taken so long to do to discover this I guess is what I'm asking the paper says that it is simply difficult to figure out how rivers are formed in the face you know all of the different factors climate things like that I mean of course there's rivers that cut through canyons you can age and that way but there's a lot of other factors that can sort of provide confounding elements yeah it's always fascinating you know just when we think we know stuff something comes up yeah that's right yeah finally you're we've talked on this show before about that snow man shaped object in the Kuiper belt known as am U. sixty nine or some call it ultimate truly you know and now I got an official new name right has been just tell us about that name with the name is what our costs it's awesome I need some music I think different done to make a matic threat Denton at its spell it for our coffee spelt A. R. R. O. K. O. T. H. and so the the story here is that it's it's not that it's gotten a new name it's that it never gotten official name so to me to lay was a result of that and sort of a poll on it was one of you know many per propositions when this object was first I'd chosen to be the next shin peace for your New Horizons but then it isn't so ultimate tool one of the ultimately won the people weren't so jazz with his name because it yeah I think it it's got Roman origins meaning sort of a distant cold place but it also has this unsavory connotation that was actually first mentioned by making Bartels a science writer it was originally a news we cannot space are common so she found basically that you know neo **** and **** were a fan of this name ultimate tool a and that it was has some unsavory connotations but Eric cough now the official name that is recognized is it's a much better name it's actually a word meaning verse from the sky from pot to nation the power ten nation in Virginia and it's actually quite a great me and I'm and I'm very happy with it was there a contest naming it or did they just decide you know let's go look for a better name so this one was actually done in I believe it was suggested first by a professor who is a member of the power ten nation and then in consult consultation with the nation's elders representatives was selected as the name and so that for the power ten nation it's actually I they use the Chesapeake Bay traditionally and so now Bob and humble as well as Johns Hopkins where New Horizons and a lot of this work has been done is also in Maryland and so it's sort of a a match up there so they they added they they really did take into cultural no concerns about native Americans on this that's right I mean if it is it's representation obviously which is great it's it's it doesn't negate all the bad things have been done to native people in all of history and hopefully this is a sign of more work that needs to be done but I mean at least for now we've got you have something and that something is a pretty awesome sounding name I mean you got to admit that Erekat this is really cool I'm waiting for the TV series to follow up about this one some new Star Trek episode they'll be going to some planet they renamed where they'll be going to this object and planning on it or something yeah I mean just generally this object is it's it's really amazing it's cool that the object has such a great name because I don't if you know much about that cover about I'm sure you do it's just that these are objects that are pristine in the words of his assistant a really preserve a history of the solar system from its most ancient times they've been on altered by the forces of nature that I've made or look the way it does it's very cool thank you Ryan Ryan about a bomb science writer Gizmodo in New York thanks for joining us going to take a break and we'll go look at the EPA's new proposal what.
