"everest " Discussed on Asian American History 101

"Let's do it. Today, we're talking about the history of Mount Everest, or mount chome lungma, which is the Tibetan name, and full transparency may not be saying that right. But we would rather be seeing it incorrectly with the correct name. Then say it correctly with an incorrect name. Although technically, anyway. The infamous mountain has the highest peak above sea level. Has an elevation of 8848.86 meters, or 29,031 feet. By the way, China and Nepal remeasured Everest in 2020 and found that due to tectonic plate movement, the peak of Everest is almost two feet higher than the widely accepted previous official measurement. Everest is located between Tibet and Nepal in the Himalayan mountain range. Most climbers go through the Nepali side due to the easier accessibility and less restrictions. Fun fact, the name of the British surveyor that the highest peak is named after is actually pronounced Everest. But don't feel the need to re correct your pronunciation, George Everest wasn't a good man, and was racist. Even by the standards of the 1800, which is saying something. And perhaps we should honor the Tibetan name for the peak and just call the mountain chama longma. The first surveys of chameleon occurred in 1847 by the British. It was part of a program that was instituted to fix locations, heights, and names of the world's highest mountains in India. They started in southern India and eventually made it to the Himalayas, but Nepal had strict laws and didn't want the British in Nepali due to suspicions about their intentions. There were several requests made to the Nepalese government, but they were all denied, which honestly, rightly so. Of course, the British didn't give up, and instead began observations of the Himalayan peaks from terrai, which was a region parallel to the Himalayas. Initial observations by surveyors showed that Kangchenjunga, which is actually the third highest peak of the Himalayas, was the highest..

First guy first westerners to climb Everest. That's awesome. Beethoven's third is awesome. The pie you had is not awesome. Anyway, it doesn't matter. It is what it is, but hero shouldn't be overused and it is. And we have a hero Joe Manchin, senator from West Virginia. The amount of vitriol and hate that this man receives. I would say that right now it is only second. To watch Donald Trump received when he was president. Is that fair to say? Who's the most hated person in America? On the part of the left. And Democrats, which is the party of the left. Joe Manchin. And his family as well. It's targeted needless to say that that's now that is now conventional. To go to the homes of politicians and other public figures with whom you differ. It's another institution innovated by the left. By the way, if anybody on the right ever does it, I condemn it too.

Shortest Ever Gamma Ray Burst Discovered

"Astronomers have discovered the shortest epa gamma-ray burst the huge blast identified as gib. Two thousand eight twenty six was coolest by the supernova implosion of a massive star in a distant galaxy. The blast was so powerful. It admitted fourteen million times the energy released by the time. Qa galaxy in the space of just zero point six five seconds most gamma-ray bursts usually more than twice as long producing what are usually described as the brightest most energetic events since the big bang astronomers divide gamma-ray burst into two broad categories based on their duration short period gamma-ray bursts blazing the life in less than two seconds and i thought to be caused by the merging of neutron stars in a binary system neutron stars of the dentist objects in the universe other than black holes. They formed that at the core collapse of massive stars at the end of their lives. Compressing still a comb more. The one point four times the mass of the sun into an object just a dozen or so kilometers wide. The material of neutron stars is as dense as the nucleus of an atom and a single teaspoon of neutron star material would w- as much as mount everest as well as their incredible density. Neutron stars are also intensely hot and possess magnetic fields millions to billions of times stronger than that of the earth long-duration gamma-ray bursts. there's lasting more than two seconds. I thought the because by the implosion of some of the universe's most massive stars at the end of their lives stars. Run out of the hydrogen. That's a stains nuclear reactions in there. 'cause the thing that makes a stash shine without the stabilizing pressure of these reactions starts can't fight gravity they collapse into exotic stellar remnant.

Leadership Lessons From Trekking up Mount Everest Twice

"But i love the story you told during your x speech where someone said. Well you went to everest. But you didn't get to the top choices. I guess she didn't get to the top ever so you can tell a story about being i think. He was at j. P. morgan or smith barney. Right j. p. morgan central. Tell that story to our listeners. Because i think it's brilliant story about failure and success. Yeah so so understand when we got back from the mountain in two thousand two as the first american women's expedition sponsored by the ford motor company. Because were the first team of american women attempting this mountain. We had a lot of media coverage four hundred fifty media outlets fodder climb and then we didn't make it and so we had to go back and do the big media tour talking about this failure and it was such a public failure and to have to talk about this failure constantly. All these media interviews just felt like a punch to the gut right because everyone was so focused on the fact that we didn't make it and i really internalize that failure. And i went to dinner party when i got back home to san francisco and the host of the dinner party was introducing the gas and he said oh. Hey this is my friend. Alison she just climb out address. And then the guy that was sitting across the table for me. He looked at me and he said oh no way. That's awesome all the way to the top and i said We'll know unfortunately we we were forced to turn around just a couple of hundred feet from the top storm. And he said oh so. You didn't climb. Mt ever and i was like. Oh wait. hang on hang on. I told mow story about how we spent two months on that now and we just had super lousy luck with the weather. You know we were just a couple of hundred feet from the top and had to turn back and gave him this whole lecture about getting to top optional. Getting down as mandatory and he said that's all great and everything. But here's the you know. The bottom line is if you're in at the very top then you didn't climb it. It doesn't count. So i just i was like all right What do you do tough guy. And he said. I worked for j. p. morgan so of course i replied with Oh no way you are the. Ceo of j. p. morgan and he said no. I didn't say i was the ceo. I i work in fixed. Income trading my said. Oh well then. I guess you don't really work for j. p. morgan do because if you're not the very top that it doesn't

"Mt everest uses selling things up. He told me it was a really challenging job. He's actually summited everest once before and that's part of the reason why they chose him to do that. Part of the measurements restaurants to the so. He told me that it was his duty. This scientific job was his responsibility. So can allow climbs to the top of mount everest. How does he measure it so he takes. Gps receiver to the top. And he's waiting to receive satellite ping's as many as possible so he'll inkers there for a while old. Thomas have to sit on the centerline data. So people who have climbed to the top of everest have described it as the roof of the world. you have a panoramic view of the himalayas. But they are typically just turning around and going back down. Maybe they'll take a selfie at the top. And that's because anywhere above twenty six thousand feet on any mountain in the world is known as the death zone. Oxygen is extremely low so the risk of death up there is far higher that can law because his job was to be receiving as many satellite ping's as possible. He lingered there for several hours. Picking estimate the minus reg- centigrade. That's negative forty five degrees fahrenheit in the middle of the night difficulties. I lost my a. He actually lost the big toe on his left foot due to frostbite. Millions now healing. Now mad i can. I can wear shoes. He had a pretty good attitude about it. I think distant given me from. Monday's he told me it was a token of love from mount everest and it seemed like it was a sacrifice he was willing to make but it turns out that kim lull getting to the top is actually the easiest part of measuring. How is that possibly the easy part. It's because the harder part and the reason. Mount everest height is constantly. Changing is figuring out where bottom is What do you mean. The hard part is figuring out the bottom. Well the bottom is sea level. And that's what we use. As the base measurement for practically any high on earth and sea level is a really hard problem that scientists have been working on for over a hundred years. It's even harder in a mountain range like the himalayas because it's nowhere near the and so you sort of have to calculate where sea level would be if it was there and the reason everest's height keeps changing is because they're still using some of the same methods to figure out where sea level is that they were using in the eighteen hundreds when they first took a measurement of everest at the time. India was under british rule so british and indian surveyors used the closest see that they had access to which was the bay of bengal calcutta. They had to first of all defines sea level. This is roger bellum. He's a professor of geology at the university of colorado so they measured sea level for a month and engraved stone rock in the harbor. They had to take that sea level measurement out to sea and figure out a way to get it to the himalayas which was hundreds of miles away at the nepal border. Yeah i i assume the ground isn't flat here right. How do you draw a totally level. Straight line all the way to everest. You have to walk okay. Starting from that mark in the ground they would put basically a ruler. Ten feet high and they would look with a special telescope. Have this from a distance of about fifty feet away and then they turn around and point the telescope at the next ruler which was also fifty feet away and what they were doing is comparing the elevations of the two rulers so they would move to another point and then another and another and another and each time they could move only about one hundred feet in this measurement transferring hype. They had to cover an area of hundreds of miles and they were on foot so this took them years and years to do so. This is basically trying to extend sort of pretend. Wine from the see all the way to the bottom of mount everest. Yes except that they couldn't really get to the bottom of mount everest okay. Nepal was closed off to foreigners at the time so british indian surveyors had to take the height measurement from his close to everest is they could get which was over one hundred miles away at the nepal border and back then before they had. Gps to go to the top of the mountain. How did they actually get the height of everest so once they calculated where sea level was at that point. They used an instrument called theod late. It's a distant ancestor to what you might see engineers using today. It looks a little bit like a telescope in it basically just angles. So this is trigonometry. Wanna one if you know two angles to a triangle and you know one side then you can basically finish the triangle. So they're solving a problem. Where one side of. The triangle is the height of mount everest. Yes exactly so. How accurate was the measurement of everest from back in eighteen hundreds. And how does that. Compare to the one that kim walls team just made. It was remarkably really really close. So the first measurements taken in the eighteen. Hundreds was twenty nine thousand two feet and the measurement they took in twenty twenty was twenty nine thousand and thirty two feet So they were only off by thirty feet. Which is really incredible if you think about it. That's that's nuts. it's wild. Yeah but measurements of everest have fluctuated pretty wildly over the years since that first measurement was taken. They fluctuated anywhere from a hundred feet to a few feet because sea level is really complicated measurement to take and that's not just because it takes a long time to walk from the nearest to the base of a mountain. How is it complicated to measure sea level. Is it just factoring in. I don't know high tide. Low tide things. Like that yeah. Tides are definitely part of it. But it's more complicated than that along the east coast of the united states. There's about a meter a meter and a half of difference between florida and maine. I talked to dan. Roman who's a scientist. At noah the national oceanic and atmospheric administration the government agency and. He explained to me that sea level is in as uniform as you might think so. First of all the ocean varies from place to place. The gulfstream is warm and all that warm water sits a little bit higher than that cold water from the labrador. Current it's denser. Saltier insists lower. He kind of sees the world's oceans like a big hot tub. The water level. Ill will on. This side is kind of high on the side is kind of well so you want to turn off the jets figure out of the water. We'd be across the entire hot or you can't turn the jets often this hot tub. The ocean so to factor in all of these variations scientists use global means he level so like the average sea level around the world. Yes it's what we talk about when we talk about global warming when we say sea levels are rising. they are talking about global. Means you level and that's going up a fraction of an inch every year okay. So is that the only reason why it's hard to figure out sea level. No not even close. Okay okay.

"Practitioner and my name is lesley ornoff. I may registered yoga instructor. And today we're gonna talk about Mount everest main topic. Yeah our topic of discussion. Today it was super interesting finding stuff out. Wasn't it yeah. This is not like part of my world. anything hold snow. Yeah i climbing is yeah very intense. It requires a lot of physical endurance. Yeah as i discovered yeah research. Yeah so i guess just for a little backstory rest of this fact that people might be aware of mount everest was first summited on may twenty ninth nineteen fifty three by sir edmund. Hillary sherpa tenzing norgay an a team of three hundred and fifty porter. Porter's twenty short buzz in ten thousand pounds of baggage. Or how it's crazy right. And it was the ninth british expedition to everest and was absurdly large. As all the sherpas porters supplies were to support only ten climbers though will and the sharp end the shales. Yes l. it. It was great heavier skewed with them. I'm sure they were getting the bulk of it. Yeah so we have to say when i was doing this research. Though it is recognized that sir edmund. Hillary and tenzing norgay were the first to to top everest. that's proven to climbers in the nineteen twenties. That were almost to the top. They were eight hundred feet from the summit They were pictured there and then a storm blew in and they were never seen again. Are you kidding. Yeah and so then. The one of the climbers was discovered. His body was discovered in nineteen ninety nine and he didn't have the expedition camera so they don't have proof but they think that's very possible that these two men actually were the first ones to summit sits. there is no recorded proof. Ray say so. There was a documentary. Called greatest mystery hubbard it and i was looking for it but my subscription services. I couldn't be good here. I wanted to watch. it is native. of course they're all mummify like the guy from the nineteen twenties one hundred years ago. almost it was like the late twenties. you know. he's his skin still on spotty body his closer soon. They're preserved under the god. How did they find him down there. I it was just. It was pretty close to the summit. And i don't know maybe looking people were really find so now. They're trying to find his partner. Who clearly had the expedition camera. Because an all this guy's gear it just wasn't there. Wow so inmate on the like a change of history de que on that would be me so if you're streaming services allow listeners. Look for i look for it. I think it'd be fascinating. So yes so we'll go still gonna. Just you know that sir edmund. Hillary and tenzing norgay are the ones that were the first summitters so by the end of twenty eighteen. Over seven thousand people had have actually summited the mountain though from the top from nineteen fifty three to current day Three hundred Sees me three hundred and fourteen people have died trying in each year. Roughly eight hundred people attempt make it to the top. So mount everest is located on the border of china in tibet. Pol and it was first recognized as the tallest peak on earth in the mid eighteen. Hundreds by rod okay. Rod hana's sick. Dr who was in indian mathematician and surveyor about fifteen years later the english dubbed at everest after the surveyor general of india..

"Hello and welcome to another edition of a dc woman. Podcast i am your host sonia ago play and today in honor of international women's day. We are so excited to welcome. Retired indian. Air force officer mountaineer motivational speaker research. Scholar and travel writer to ronnie deluca is the first woman from uttar pradesh india to climb mount everest and the first indian woman to climb the highest volcano of asia. Known as mount. Dama avant in san to look i served in the indian air force for a decade and was squadron leader an outdoor training instructor in the prestigious indian air force academy in hyderabad india and she was even involved. The physical training of hundreds of feature officers including india's first three women fighter pilots with twenty three mountaineering expeditions and tracks in india nepal bhutan iran africa and russia under her belt. To look at is now working on her. Phd continuing to train for future tracks and she serves as a motivational speaker which includes a hugely popular. Ted talk and she has been featured widely in mainstream media india and south asia. She is a staunch advocate of women's rights and human rights. Globally juelich out. Welcome to the show. Is sonia thank you for having made you to look i. I wanna say that the messages you received from your family and especially your mother growing up or such a tremendous example of female empowerment and a genuine belief in human spirit. You were taught that you only have this life to pursue your dreams and goals and that nothing can get in your way so long as your mind believes it you can achieve it while if every young girl or woman receive this message growing up. What could be accomplished on planet earth. So really really impressed by that. And you've talked a lot about your spiritual beliefs and faith. And i wanna ask you. What is going to remind as you ascend a mountain. do you go into a meditative state. Will you rely on your deep spiritual beliefs and constantly have to retain mindfulness in assessing the physical challenges. Along the way i would imagine. There's a variety of protocols and situational awareness. That is needed. But i'd really like her more from you on that. Because in my estimation this mindset is what separates those who make it to the top and those who unfortunately do not on different stages of climbing i have a different kind of a mindset. I would say that. If i fain like there there might be avalanche. There might be a route wash. That might be bad weather. Something which has detained my plans to climb a mountain. I get into a buddy confrontational mode. Because i am. I'm trained as a soldier. And i had to fight my adversity so at times i started seeing the mountain. Asthma adversity. it happened to me on mount everest. I had to in my second attempt. Also i had to turn back from three thousand feet twice before i made my tent and succeeded so in those two attempts i started challenging everest. That either you can give me death or injury you can go ahead and give me that and i will keep on doing what i'm capable of doing. So sometimes i get into that kind of confrontational mode. Where i see that. Yes the mountain in front of me. Is the obstacle that i have to overcome he. It is an enemy. And i have to fight it with all my might that i have sometimes from vivid me. There are certain sentences accord or something but have support him that just springs up bent. The conditions are really tough. I'm climbing exhausted and the going gets very very tough. I have seen these flashes. Coming from within a volume by Kipling everybody had about displaying very famous swim. If so there was this lions from this point if that some everything is finished and nothing is left to new that still a wasting your head which says hold on so at one time this would hold on just a up in my mind and i just continued. I just held on and kept my foot one foot after another in front official. So that is how it happens sometimes. It is ready spinach with because london's are so beautiful. I get into that meditative state also but i contemplate the nature of life seeing a mountain see a mountain the stance alone so anybody who is strong mighty and wants to rise high.

Interview With Saray Khumalo, The First Black African Woman to Summit Everest

"You've heard me say many times that if you're gonna climb success mountain just to say that you did it well before that feeling it'll be pretty flat. We've also spoken many times about the need for doing things because of a greater purpose because not only will there be some amazing wins. There's going to be probably some mega losses along the way. If if there's something driving you giving you the resilience to overcome the obstacles. First difficulty is just permission to quit. However when you when you do decide to keep going have you considered the maybe the sky is not the because in life you are going to hit many psychological and emotional walls and you're going to get knocked on your ass that's just how it is. The question is do you have the internal and external emotional mental and even spiritual and physical sherpas to get you up to win. Well stay tuned. Because that's exactly where we're going. I'll guest on. This episode is set up khumalo. Her life is a story of remarkable resilience. She's overcome the odds. Most of us will never even likely face. She has met catastrophic failure and even death head on and she kept going not because of sheer willpower but because of being purpose driven seta is the first black african woman to summit everest and reach the south pole. She is an award-winning mountaineer. Philanthropist who has used to climbs to build libraries across south africa. She has recently partnered with apple to build digital libraries. She is also part of the forbes. Women african africa leading women's summit. Two thousand twenty one surat. Khumalo is a transformational and business. Executive coach of whom the south african president said. She reminds us that. Through courage and perseverance. We can achieve highest ambitions for the greater good of humanity. Ladies and gentlemen. Please put your hands together and help me. Kim having excited now you know. I always like to start the show by asking my guest in this age of influences. Where is an expert who somebody the we might not know. Maybe never even considered who has been a major influence on you and on your leadership. I have people actually. It's my mother and my grandmother. Mother didn't do too much school. She went up to from two is the second level high school but she could sell. I stood eskimo and she always believed that. The sky's the limit. Which is something bet. She used to tell my sisters nine. She ended up being a single mother with seven goals and she had two absolutely so you can imagine how what was going on the house especially living in the environment so that was a lot of fun but also my grandmother my grandmother. Is you know and my grandfather. We amazing people that were missionaries. Who really my grandfather always used to say who do not leave a lack of service. That is requested as a young kid. You don't really put much thought to it. But they've been just amazing people to me Because even though they did not have much there was always something to help a somebody else. always blissed while so. Are your grandparents still around. No unfortunately my grandmother was the last two to pass away. She passed away one hundred and one. Allison i'd crazy. What how and so if you put together the light your grandparents and that whatever coming from your mom what is that if you sort of able to boil it down. What would be the central philosophy that you've gained from from those two sources grandparents are mother. A lot of it came to the fore for me in two thousand nine and the fundamental philosophy is is that Is the is the concept of a wound to a because we are it realizing that i can achieve more with the right partnerships around me and i think that is fundamentally everything. It's supported me with my executive job is supported me on the mountain but but also to realize when set partnerships and not the partnerships that you need specific levels of where you are at because i mean you know about climate the ship let you use up to address best scam in not necessarily the same ones that you need for the summit. How do you appreciate them and really say goodbye in order for music summit.

"About jeff. Welcome to the show. Thank you camping. Glad to be here happy. Have you tell us a little bit more about yourself well. I grew up in a small town in northern indiana gauchan. Indiana and i was all set to go off to college when it was time and i ended up dropping out after two days and just didn't feel like that was what i really wanted to do. After having spent my whole long life of eighteen years in school so i went to work in a factory saved up some money and then mom reluctantly drove me to the edge of town. I stuck out my son and he tried to cross country. But i did end up going back to college after my parents told me if i didn't they were going to kill me and i thought okay choices college death. I'll take college and ended up. Really loving academics. At a serious level went to the university of chicago than went to law. School eventually went to seminary so ended up spending a lot of time in the classroom. I'd even taught a few college classes practiced law for thirty years retired. And i suppose what's really brought us together is that i written ten books. Several of which are about what. I call philanthropy trekking in nepal himalayas grew so but is that exactly. What is philanthropy attracting. Yeah it it. Means a combination of fee lows. Which is greek for love and anthropologists philanthropy. Means love of humanity in. So i combine that with tracking. And so i've been to nepal fourteen times in started a foundation over there so i combined tracking with philanthropy led an organiz many groups of truckers and many of which have been involved with the mission of the foundation started which is called the possibility foundation. What exactly does the bassett village foundation do well. It's concentrated in a remote area of eastern nepal. Which is not on any of the popular trekking trails. A set of the first time. I was there which was in two thousand eight. My little group of truckers were only the second group of people from the outside world that had ever visited abilities which was an amazing experience because they were living basically the same way they had for the last five hundred years but anyway the foundation does is. I developed this relationship. Was that village. And we have helped to build a school hydroelectric system water system. Our most recent effort was little health clinic and we also help to rebuild the village which was partially destroyed from two major earthquakes. Back in twenty fifteen the same earthquakes that sarah safari was in when she was tracking mount everest in the last episode so our mission goal is to work with the local people to finance the projects that they would like to bring up their standard of living in terms of education sanitation healthcare those sorts of efforts but all of those projects have been requested by the village not suggested by us the outsiders the funders donors to the foundation members. And the reason for that is. I think it's very important for this. Kind of development work really to be primarily in controlled by the people at supposed to benefit so that we don't develop a kind of dependency mentality so the school the water system the electrical system the villagers build it themselves with their own hands and they own they run it and we just provide financial assistance and expertise. When it's ask for school cool. i was talking to somebody else as well. Today that happened to be working with foundations that affected the same area. About empowering nepali women roller. You should connect us. Sarah safari yeah. She's really cool. Where did you grow up. Like i said in the small town of gauchan. Indiana doesn't seem like there'd be much there in indiana as far as mountains. There are not. I had never climbed a mountain or done. Any sort of high-altitude tracking. Before the first time i went to nepal back in nineteen ninety five and my first experience there was directing the mount everest base camp trail.

FACT SMACK: Spider Edition

"Okay kwong here's how this is gonna work all right. Sebastian gets roughly ten minutes facts to prove that his critter of choice. Spiders are the coolest critters. Okay got it now. These are general spider facts. So sebastian gets to call on any spider. He wants which gives him a lot to choose from. There are like roughly forty five thousand species of spiders and to give you a sense of context. Think about an animal that we see all the time or type of animal mammals right there are only about six thousand or so species of mammals that covers literally everything from shrews to wales to rhinos compared to the forty five thousand as of spiders nest so many spy seen mammals. Like it's just where it's at. Now where's that okay. So here's the thing it's not just. How many of them there. It's also where they live. Spiders are out here. Along in here is pretty much everywhere. See this is one of my favorite things about Planet earth is basically. Wherever i go. I can find a spider because they are spiders living everywhere from the inter titles on right at the ocean's edge to forests to dryest desert's where they build sand tunnels under the sand up on mountains not as regular mountains all the way up to the slopes of mount everest and everything in between a hold on he just said there are spiders that live on mount everest. Oh yeah clung. There's a famous one up. There called the himalayan jumping spider. They live up to twenty two thousand feet or sixty seven hundred meters above sea level. They are the spider the animal that is arguably the highest permanent resident on earth. They're living in the penthouse on our planet incredible. I wouldn't have thought i wouldn't have thought spider. I would've thought something else. Yeah i know me neither. But i love this because even its species name omni superstars is kind of perfect for talking smack. The omni superstar means stands above everything because it is literally above us at all points of the day of the night of the year. Watching down a bunks. All be lower animals. Identify lower animal. You know about that spider. Maybe your soul mate. All right what else do you got supplier okay. So the one that sent me over the spider edge wong. Did you know that there are multiple types of spiders who live at least part-time underwater. Like i'm talking seawater freshwater. They're out there. I mean you must find that amazing because you can barely swim. Wow wow wow. Wow emily everyone else was getting to talk. Smack didn't turn honestly fair but her full fare but herve okay. Okay so anyways. There's this spider that lives underwater called the diving bell spider and they basically make a sifi like underwater dome of air. That's their air pocket. Go there when they need to breathe and the rest of the time they just go out and they bring a little like bubble of air around their lungs which on a spider on the bottom of the abdomen. Bring a bubble of air around with that and they're just walking around underwater. They are catching food under their catching fish catching small insects and their entire life every part of their lifespan from birth to reproduction to death. Okay even i. A person who doesn't think about spiders will admit this incredibly cool that spiders are really living all over. The place got range qualm. They got rained. I don't mean like as a group of species. Some spiders legit have ranged. in fact many spiders can fly. I mean technically it's called ballooning but they're flying get out what they'll do is they. Basically will just release silk into the wind and it goes up and basically turns into like a kite. But when you're a light enough to be a spider something that's like a kite is basically like an air balloon out of here and okay. Here's the thing though. It's not just them catching the wind. There's evidence that spiders can sense earth's electric fields and take advantage of that to shoot up into the sky

"everest " Discussed on Camden Boyd's The Happiness Question

"Seven organizations. Who are empowering women. Why just wine one mountain. why just one organization. Why just one country. So i expanded the project from one to seven and right. Now i've climbed six out of seven guests which one is left. Everest's i have to go back and do that. So besides the everest one which one out of the six you've done is the hardest so last year right now. I was on top of denali which is the highest seeking north america. And i think that's one of the most challenging mountains that i've ever climbed it's very technical. It takes a lot of you know you knew really need to know what you are up against in terms of knowing tools and tech needs of all the challenges on the mountain. You have to how good enough experience you have to be extremely strong physically and mentally you know. I was carrying hundred twenty pounds. I am myself hundred twenty pounds of carrying my own way on my back and lead. It was extremely challenging. And you know it's like twenty thousand feet. It's not short so lack of oxygen and all of that so it's a pretty pretty cold mountain. It's the closest mountain view north pole which means it makes it the coldest mountain on the planet and it's very windy especially the summit day so i would say that's one of the most challenging mountains of gone. Yeah so and then you know it takes twenty days so imagine twenty days off no shower. No restroom dehydrated food sleeping on ice and snow. You know like all that comes with the package. That sounds awful honestly. It sounds awful until you think about it in a different way you know to some people. Ask me okay. you just said that. Why do you even knew such thing. Because when you're experiencing so much adversity in hardship and you know it's just everything is so challenging. You have to live on the edge. You have to leave your hundred percent or you're done and just being in the moment being very present using all my techniques and potential and intelligence and a physical call intelligence everything that i know at the moment i have to use all the power to be able to continue on so when you experience living at your hundred percent living at your fifty percent. It's not fun anymore when up there. I'm leaving at my hundred percents. I'm living on the edge. And i have to perform so well to be able to survive as human beings. We want to be comfortable. Who wants challenges. Who wants hardship right so when you actually decide to live at your hundred percent you put yourself out of your comfort zone. You experienced something that you cannot go back to normal life comfortable life. Because you know what's possible you know your potential and that's when your life goes to the next level and a lot of people are scared off experiencing a next level. 'cause it's scary yes. Of course. it is a scary. But that's why only a few people get to go there. What's your book about. So i told you after the earthquake i just wanted to share my book with the rest of the war. I wanted to share my story with the rest of the world. So if you have people who are listening to us right now when they are thinking about writing their book their memoir. I think it's a very powerful experience. Just being able to share your story with the rest of the world it brings so much accepted. You accept yourself in a different level. So i really recommend people were thinking about it to do to write your book however it does emit even if it is for yourself right you have to you. It's very big was very beneficial and healing for me you know. I started from stories of my childhood growing up in iran experiencing discrimination. I grew up seeing women around me being deprived up. Their rights never achieving their full potential. And it was just like starting from there. I wrote my some of my memories of my childhood which was extremely hard to ride does like i'm sure for those people who are listening to me and they have memory that it's only only maybe handful of people know about them or maybe just themselves. It's really hard to share those memories with the rest of the world and publishing your book. So i was very powerful for me. I felt so liberated and free after sharing secrets with the rest of the world. You know you feel like that said i. There's nothing else to hide. The whole world knows everything about me at this moment. i'm done. i'm i tend. Be however i wanna be. I can do whatever i wanna do. And i. this is very powerful and we always to our cells to give ourselves this freedom and You know 'cause until then you're all hiding. We are all pretending. We are all wearing masks and we are not a real self and it is in such a way of wasting energy if we are not really ourselves and pretending to be somebody else so i wanted to write my story. I wanted to write that book to liberate myself from myself from oldham. All the masks. That i'm wearing all the things.

"I'll sarah it's great to have you on the show. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me. Do you have any questions before we get started. Tell me more about yourself. And what did you start this block. Cats let's see. I started this podcast out of the bit of a depression. That was trying to find out for myself how to be a happier person and through school projects and this show. I've been able to help myself and others be happier still happen to learn every single time i haven't interview. What is the secret to happiness. Now let's see well but if we talked about so far you're talking is going to be completely new but we've talked about relationships. Those are very important. We've talked about money. Buzek just kind of ways to be happier. I'll give you my own definition. Good cheer wore me to death of is leaving at your full potential. Who i like that so doing things that you really wanna do. And then you're happy and that there is a deeper levels to it after you do everything that you wanna do then you realize after doing all of that. There's only two things that really make you happy. The rest is just a surface happiness but the deep happiness there are only two ways of being actually happy one making a difference in the world to having relationships like that. Tell us a little bit more about yourself. I was born in iran. And i moved to the united states when i was twenty and i studied electrical engineering at ucla. And i was working in by companies and then later on. I decided that i want to start teaching and the main part of the story. Is that outof nowhere. I decided to climb mount everest. Seven years they go and then a couple of years a few months. After i decided to climb mount everest i decided to quit and then when i decided to quit i met the founder of the organization in power nepali girls and i decided to climb mount everest again for the second time. I mean just. I didn't do the stein. But i just said to quit right at the beginning but the second time i decided to do it. This time to raise funds and awareness for the girls who become victims of human trafficking or forced to get married at a very young age and then i actually climbed mount everest. And when i was climbing there was a seven point. Eight earthquake in nepal. I survived the earthquake and the avalanches and aftershocks everything about that earth way again came back home. Publish the book starting my own business and here. I am right now. Seven years after that would have been a scarier rake. It was gary. Yeah where were you. When that hit. I was at twenty thousand feed on an ice wall about finish the wall on the edge off the wall. Almost when the earthquake hit us at a decision mount everett above koumura icefall is the most dangerous part of everest in most unstable part of everest grey. I so did you end up making it to the top. No i'd i'd you're talking to my soul right no. We didn't make it to the top because everybody decided to quit climbing. You know there are sherpas which are neb Mountain climbers who are really good at this and they set up their route a rope all the way to the top of the mountain and because of the air raid ten thousand people died today have to call it quits and they had to leave to go. Take care of their families. Their home their belongings was just such a crazy earthquake and then when they left nobody else without them. Klein's evidence or any mountain that area so they let everybody else to leave. Yeah so no. I then make it to the top of everest. I still haven't made it to the top of everest. Even tried a bunch of times. After that i still haven't made it to the top of everest

Traveling To Snowdonia

"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay

London And Surrounding Areas Restarting Lockdowns Due To Coronavirus Mutating

"And parts of essex and hot fanfare are hours away from returning to the highest level of covid nineteen restrictions following an alarming spike of cases in the capital pubs restaurants and other indoor entertainment. Venues will close once more. The latest surge has been ascribed to a new variant of the corona virus which appears to be growing more rapidly than previously for the moment however the uk's government says it has no plans to review the curious christmas truce. It appears to think it has negotiated with the virus. While i'm joined with more on this boy monocle. Twenty four health and science correspondent dr. Chris smith also a virologist at cambridge university chris. This the idea that there's a new strain of covid nineteen sounds like the very definition of the absolute last thing. We want to hear at this point. How grim news is this to be quite honest with you. I'm not alarmed. I'm not surprised. And i'm actually quite reassured and explain all those things ovar mutate because they're based on the same genetic code is running in pretty much will life on earth then the same mechanisms that lead to life evolving and changing apply viruses. And so as they go through their hosts they would evolve and change and corona virus is no exception. That's exactly what's happened to you. Therefore we would anticipate that we would see different strains and different emerging and indeed. This is not the first time it has happened. We've seen happened early. On in the pandemic in china we've seen it happen and disclosed various different forms of the viruses spread across the world and in europe they documented some of the same changes are now being seen in this new variant in the south east of england. So this is not altogether new in terms of concept and is not altogether new in terms of variant. This being disclosed. We're reassured by matt. Hancock saying yesterday house commons the the. Don't think although they are confirming that this will lead to the virus sidestepping the effects of a vaccine. We don't think it makes people who catch it for ill. It just may be transmits a bit better. Although that speculation on airpods that they're they're saying it might be linked to an increasing cases in the southeast england in terms of course load but don't know for sure if we're going to try to be exceptionally optimistic about this. Is there any possibility that the reason the viruses having to mutate to survive is there an indication that perhaps that means we've got it on the run will certainly when you apply pressure to a virus and by pressure. I mean for instance putting a vaccine into a population so you create an immune barrier or you put in place public health measures. You are forcing the virus to change to optimize to those new conditions. Because that's why things evolve in the first place. They're responding to selective pressure from their environment. And we know we do this to the flu. We know this happens with hiv. When we give people hiv drugs for example then the virus that grows in them is the only one that can bypass the blockade of drug. And that's why we use multiple drugs at wants to minimize the chance. The happening so the concept is common. Well understood so yes. It is. Theoretical possibility that by applying pressure to the virus. We are forcing it to become more infectious so that despite robbing it of opportunities to transmit it can still continue to transmit given the does appear to have become more infectious in the capital. However does it make the proposed relaxation of restrictions around christmas. Look even more. Ill advised than they might have. Well we don't know it has become more infectious in the capital. We know we've got more cases same in the east and southeast of england essex positive of cheer kent. They've seen big increases in numbers of the trend is in an upward direction. Which is why caution. Reproach has been taken in the uk by moving. Probably the best part of eleven million people who live in those territories into a so-called tier three situation to apply more pressure to the virus. The idea i think is this is anticipating the trend is going upwards where we are today is not where we're going to be tomorrow and so by bearing down on ahead of christmas when there's going to be this loosening effect where we got five days of reveling and Enhanced mixing the there are going to be more cases so if we start molo point and already have more control at the virus to start with them. We're going to end up finishing the low point than we otherwise would is or anything that the rest of the world should have learned from the united states. Experience we've thanksgiving because that was sort of a test run of what happens if all of a sudden millions of people travel by aircraft and by train and spend at least today in close quarters with households other than their own well. This is exactly what happened with chinese new year and when millions of people were mobilized to crush china to get together for the chinese new year this probably spawned even more cases because people traveled internationally for that event to so yes. History is full of examples of peop- of of Repeating itself and this is no exception. We are anticipating that. The mixing that goes on over christmas will lead to more cases. The question is how many more cases and how are we going to cope with them. So is there a good reason at least scientifically good reason. Why not just this government. But any government wouldn't just say to its people look seriously. Christmas is basically cancelled We are just going to have to suck this up for a few more months. We do have a vaccine to look forward to. We do have a restoration of normality to look forward to. We might maybe think about throwing in an extra couple of bank holidays around. June but christmas is basically not going to happen. Will the president of the royal college of emergency medicine was asked this very question on bbc. Radio four's pm program. Yesterday an her answer was. Are you asking me. This is a doctor or as you asking me this as human and actually you get a very different also because the doctor slash the infection control person is going to say which just council everything we should imprison. Everybody break the chain of transmission bear down on the virus but the human element of this is people need something to look forward to. Morale is incredibly important. And if you rob people away of the one thing. They've looked forward to in. What is the end of a very dismal year than this will probably translate into poor compliance in the long term. it will probably therefore translate into in the long-term more cases more headaches more problems and ultimately more casualties from are so. I think the government have of compromise. Here the trying to go for a controlled christmas. Where if you allow people some flexibility you know that most people will be responsible. You hope that they are. You're willing to tolerate some degree of of letting your hair down because you know that in a noncompliant christmas where you'd said don't do this and if on breaks the rules anyway he's probably going to be a higher price to pay in the long term. I think that's really the equation that they've done. Well let's look finally at the progress of that vaccine which is now being rolled out in united kingdom and again it's a question of government messaging. Does it strike you. As a missed opportunity that there is a website with a rolling hourly update of how many people have now been vaccinated. Well the numbers are not that high yet You see numbers like yesterday. They did three hundred people or four hundred people in this hospital and that hospital. And when you see that there's this peak of mount everest which is sixty eight million people in the uk high eight billion people on earth. Hide one what. You wanna do When you knock a few hundred off that is not much. And so. I think maybe that's coming may be there. There is that opportunity in the future but for now. It probably wouldn't be a big demonstrable difference

Progress Toward A Safer Psychedelic Drug To Treat Depression And Addiction

"There's growing evidence that psychedelic drugs can help people with mental health problems like addiction and depression. But these drugs also cause hallucinations and other dangerous side effects. So as NPR's Jon Hamilton reports, scientists are working to create safer alternatives. The drug ibogaine comes from the roots of a West African shrub. Small studies suggest it can reduce drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms. But David Olson of the University of California, Davis says using ibogaine is a treatment presents huge challenges. Ibogaine is like the Mount Everest of psychedelics. It causes hallucinations and potentially fatal heart problems. Also, it's really hard to make in large quantities. Olson in a team of researchers had a question. Can you take a really complex molecular structure like ibogaine and distill it down to its essential elements that give rise to the beneficial effects? Coulson's team started by giving the ibogaine molecules some nips and tucks be locked off the parts of the structure that gave rise to a lot of the deleterious effects and we left the part of the structure intact. It still was able to have anti addictive and anti depressant properties. The changes also left the substance that was easy to manufacture. The scientist named their creation tavern and tha Log or TV G, and they began testing it in rodents, including some binge drinking mice. Every single animal in the experiment. Reduce their consumption for alcohol, which was really, really surprising. TVG also helped rats that had been addicted to heroin, Olson says. Usually these rats relapse in response to light or sound cues they associate with the drug Tabernacle log is able to have this long lasting protective effect on heroin relapse. TVG also improved symptoms of depression in mice. All without producing any heart problems or behaviors associated with hallucination. Wilson, who has a financial stake in T B G, says drugs based on psychedelic substances have great potential because they work in a different way. They don't mask disease symptoms. Really designed to try to rewire the brain. The T B G results appear in the journal Nature, and it's still not clear whether they will hold up in people. But scientists not involved in the study say the approach has great potential. It's definitely promising it zah first step Gabriella Manzano is a researcher at well Cornell Medicine in New York and co author of a commentary on the T V G study. She says it suggest a way to make other psychedelic drugs safe enough to become mainstream options for treating psychiatric disorders. This provides a road map on how we could start tweaking these chemical compounds to make them very useful in the clinic. Keep the good parts get rid of the bad parts. It's still not known, though, whether getting rid of the bad parts will keep the drugs from being effective. Counter. Liston is an associate professor of neuroscience and psychiatry it while Cornell. One of the big questions in the field is is the hallucinogenic experience necessary for getting better. And there's some evidence both ways, Liston says. It's time to figure out what psychedelic drugs and they're triplets counterparts can really do for people with depression, addiction, PTSD and other disorders. Let's gather the data. Let's see what works. Let's make sure we understand the safety profile. But let's also be open to the possibility that these compounds could really help. A lot of people who need help. Listen, notes that one psychedelic ketamine has already been approved to treat depression. Jon Hamilton. NPR news

Why did Mount Everest's height change?

"Mount Everest. Official Height is a contentious topic between China and Nepal until today. Officials from both countries just announced they've agreed the world's highest peak measures exactly 8848.86 M or 29,032 FT. The new number is less than a meter higher than the previously recognized height and comes after more than a decade of debate.

"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring <unk>. Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great

"And so what we need to focus on right now in education more than anything is the establishment of positive relationships. Teachers faculty members students and their classmates we all need to push towards a common direction of establishing relationships that are meaningful that are based on truth and that are based on income passion honesty sincerity integrity. Every individual can contribute or take away from a positive educational experience and as adults. our responsibility Is to provide the positive examples? Of Education the positive results of a thoughtful meaningful educational experience. We all have the power to be good examples to be Educated responsible mature examples to all of younger Generations is Tom how to behave as an adult with people that you may disagree with. You know that is the essence of Education in my mind the education that we need to put a patch on to the next pack pass out to the Next Is that which is built on positive relationships positive discourse positive thinking and appreciation for what has come before us? And a recognition and appreciation that we can improve but we can only improve moving forward if we are in educated population that has the ability to communicate in a positive meaningful way. and to me the the educational Everest that we're looking at is being able to provide the same experience now that may be limited in modality. providing that human element that's Social Development. That can be hindered in these circumstances and we have a responsibility to find a way to overcome that. Because they this generation deserves as great in education. As any of the other Generations previously have had the opportunity. Thankfully we have a technological advances that can provide great sensory input. They can provide great examples of ways to test your mind, but there's no doubt that the proper development of a mature human being requires social interaction with other human beings wage that is positive and that continues throughout life. And so we cannot drop the ball. We must continue to push forward with even with the present situation holding us back. So we need to be thoughtful we need to be creative and more than anything. We need to be human and since June and so with that. I hope you guys have a great rest of your weekend. I appreciate you listening and.

Just incredible women of spent quite a lot of time with them on the front line there on arms they just have pepper spraying handcuffs on that very conscious decision that the that knocked armed who spent time with the team in Zimbabwe Khuda Kashinka a nail affiliate armed, they will have AK47's so it's. Quite a difference. I'm not sure which one was more unnerving being with anonymity or an armed with the Black Mambas they in their heads Baddie the bobbies on the beat the eyes and the ears on the ground, the dairies they don't come face to face with the coaches they all the first line of defense and they're trying to disrupt the landscape. So they'd do morning and night patrols that always patrolling in different places people can't get used to that movements and they check over the fence lines for incursions they dismantled Sneh's they're just generally monitoring wildlife to be honest it's working brilliantly because they haven't seen an increase in poaching. Jeering covid times. So there's been a big increase in in many parts of Africa with the Bush meat poaching. These guys work very closely with the communities and really is testament to the work that they're doing on the ground that there hasn't been a big spike s not to say that won't be but certainly now that they seem to be a managing that really well, and they take food parcels into the communities and they really focus on the education and awareness hanging out with those ladies is being an absolute privilege also spending time on the front line with ACA shing you're in Zimbabwe a nail fully armed so that. That went beyond an adventure that was like being in the middle of a war zone. We were out in a very remote part of the the Bush and it was just me and these ladies and is pitched up signs coaches as wild animals, and it really does bring it home to these women are your lifeline very much.

"How it came about the first two mountains climbed or reached the summit way before the rest of the team on both of these mountains. Now, they want I to mountains in the Himalayas and people were saying you know guys in the team were saying you know how how did you just do how is that happening and at the time I wasn't really sure. But now I am absolutely know what it was in it technique the employee on every mountain. So when you leave high-camp stark, it's freezing cold. There's nothing to say see you put your head to John and on those first mountains just slipped him behind. The CHIAPPA. And when the ship and moved his I move mine when he moved for move, mine sounds very simple. But what that does now I know what that does to the time I was just doing that is it keeps your mind quiet unfocussed. So if you get behind the team especially when you're high altitude and it's freezing cold knits, pitch dog and you're. Quite scared you, you might feel scared you're not gonNA, catch them up and you're going to be left alone. Maybe be left there on your these kind of thoughts pop into your head once those negative voices to stop to come. Now with. Over the years of seen it once once they've. Months they set in a very difficult to get rid of at high achieved. So what they started keeps your mind occupied his simple technique, but it absolutely works and I've tried it. Now it's running with hiking. So next time you're walking up really big hill when you're thinking, this is really hard work and I don't want to go any further just get behind the person in front and literally focus on their feet and following feet. An is phenomenal. It tightly works. Now I'm less selfish about it and I rotate round with whoever I'm climbing, which follow me for bit awful I then but that is literally how are now climbed mountains. Moving from Everest elephants. Out of that happens. And you tell us a bit about that. Yeah, absolutely. So as much as I love doing adventures, I feel when I felt a wasn't really using the creative side of my brain is much as I wanted. So I went back to switches design and I went and studied for a master's in sustainable design seven years ago at the University of Brighton. On. That again was pretty big game changer for me.

"On any external help. So me and my climbing partner Jang Boo, we found ourselves in a key off summit hush. So that wasn't really part of what we wanted. So we opted to stay an extra seven hours in the. High camp before going to the summit to allow two teams in front of us to go. I said there was a team from China and a team from India. What that meant was we I mean, we still had to sit and wait for about three hours while they will coming back down. There was this woman if a to neck area, we didn't get to the summit to Hof one in the day which is. Late. But we plan to do that and what that meant for us was we've got to sit on the summit of Mount Everest for half an hour with the two Obas, which is a incredibly a man thing and we have beautiful blue guy an amazing view but we want to lucky on the descendant storm came rolling in quickly we had to spend the night at eight thousand, three hundred meters at the high camp. Site pretty comfortable night we would have been the two highest living people on Earth that certainly on the north side, we were the only two in the camp site. And these winds got more and more ferocious and I I remember lying in a little yellow tent thinking the sides we're going to be ripped off any moment and then I started thinking if we became APP for him. I will let feeling felt like if we were suddenly in free fall but I would I didn't have a parachute on my back or just being side of this is yellow tent. When we looked out in the morning, we will one of only three tenths left standing everything alison flying away and the guys that we were chatting to that were camp to site beneath us. Some of them actually had their tents rip of when they were in the ten said, the groundsheet was left on the ground with them on it on the wrist being.

"To it's everything is leading in the same correction. Yeah I mean I think that's really important I know this is a storytelling episode. But that's something that we talk a lot about to in our other episodes talk to content. Creators is if you have that vision and if everything lines up than you know that's always really important. You can apply that to a lot of things in life. So what are your favorite stories or memories from Expedition Everest? Well I think a lot come to mind and I do think most of them are from being younger. Just the hype for the ride I remember very vividly riding this in middle school we would go ally and I had like most kids just like a digital camera and we brought it to the parks and I remember. I had on my wrist and we rode the ride. Probably just over and over and over again and I remember. We were trying to take a picture of the Yeti in. I just remember getting shot and we were standing outside the ride after we just wrote it going through the pictures. I remember seeing the shot and thinking. Oh my God I may like like this like I can still like right now. I can see the picture in my mind that I took because I was so excited and I was so proud of it and I just I remember waiting in the queue those first couple of times where you were waiting hours there was so much to look at. It feels like you're in a museum so it feels so real especially when you're an impressionable kid. You know a guy there is this so I remember all that and I think that stands out to me the most I was. It was very intimidating. But it's also approachable. I don't know why I can't pinpoint why IT IS I. Space Mountain is scary for kids. Probably the dark Everest is a much more intense ride but I feel like for some reason it draws people in more I think maybe because you can see it. Go down the largest drop sill. Maybe it's easier to ease people into because he can see the thrill and as I wonder if it's something about animal kingdom because I feel like animal kingdom is not known for throw rides so I wonder if kids you know who just been walking around all day or doing this or whatever else you know if their parents say. Let's go on Expedition Everest. I wonder if they're just kind of not in that mindset to be scared of.

"Well this of course was Way Beyond the budget so I was having to have me a thumbs up Facebook and a Google and HTC and with tons of a Hollywood production companies. Wow, I Max and I mean it's just crazy the amount of travelling around the world just to try and get investors. So I I love that whole side of it, you know, I put on a suit and got on a plane just flew around the world and send a picture and so and you know, then that eventually brought me to have breasts and shooting the spirituality film which was so exciting to shoot creatively and yeah, the whole approach is what I really want to talk about and you actually I mean got into the question which is perfect cuz my next question is about the Everest virtual reality, you know, I mean, that's how I connected with you on LinkedIn. I saw I saw your post and I, you know, I did research on you and I thought really liked your stores. Me what you were doing and I was like, all right. definitely got a I got an interview this guy this is really really cool. Cuz I love the arm not I told you my company does but we build virtual reality apps and do a i and all types of different developments. So it's really cool man. I'm loving it and I think it's I think VR and a you know, our artificial intelligence is a highly in Trend right now. All these emerging Technologies are just are skyrocketing and they're just innovating every single day and it's hard to keep up with it to be honest. But what you're doing is very different and I've never heard of I've heard of people filming on Everest and these mountains but never doing anything for what you're doing and I know you got into you know, Tim Film Festival as well. So kind of tell me about the overall experience on that film and and what inspired you to create it went to start it. So I did a Google 360 photo shoot on mobile homes. The highest mountain in Europe about that must have felt full amount like five years ago now quite a long time ago and we were shooting these 360 Panos, right? So just photos and it's all manual but things within Life 360 cameras and I went to Google Headquarters when we launched it and it was the first time I ever put on a VR headset and it was the Google cardboard. That's just put it on me just to see what I thought and I just thought it was incredible, you know, the the sample footage I had obviously was nothing particular exciting but it was just the idea of being completely immersed in 3D. I'd not seen it before was so cool. And I was you know, as I said earlier in this podcast, you know, my whole passion was to really bring people to these locations appointments get to you right off and I've been doing that through film work and photography and the first time ever I put on a headset and I was completely immersed in that environment and so obviously for me it was you know, it was like, this is exactly what I want to shoot for the rest of my career page.

"I mean, it's unbelievable and this does actually already climbed Everest adoption before so it's not like it was as first time it's yeah, it's it's so hard to describe the difference between the two, you know, and the danger of being up in the death zone without oxygen is that you can push it too far cuz you know, you have to get down right and the problem with lack of oxygen is a Is that your body can just shut down so fast, so normally, you know, we can get tired in the mountains you like. Well, I'm getting quite tired now. I'll just start heading down and then you just start heading down but the problem with the lack of option at home actually starts to kill yourselves because that's why it's called the deathstone, right? There's so little oxygen in the air that your body literally starts to die. So if you don't know when to turn around fast enough you could have faith could have turned around already, but you will still just give up on the way down because your body is already gone past as owned that it can't recover from that's why it's so dangerous. It's yeah. Well, like I said, it's it's actually really quite serious climbing without absolute respect people have done it either. I can't I don't understand how people could do it without oxygen. I thought it just sounds even it sounds so hard even with oxygen oxygen, you know, but like I said, think a lot of the perception is wrong or you know, if take a very fit athlete right and you they train forever if they can probably climb Everest, right if they go go to the safe route, yeah exactly and on oxygen it's you know, any climate that I know which is a lot of climate since it's been you know, most of my life would be able to climb Everest perfectly happily and fine on bottled oxygen but only a couple of people that I know would be capable of climbing it without just to put it in perspective and these, you know, they're all fit guys right there all full-time climbers, but the difference between with and without is just huge and also you have to really want to do it without because the amount of suffering you go through is just in crazy, you know, it's such a mental game trying to clamor that oxygen it's dead.

"Well, let's see isn't as hard cuz lots of shares, you know, eighty percent of the Everest fruit and it's also fixed the Denali package is often said to be just as hard ever. It's it's very different than ice deny. He's quite High because it's a northern latitude, which means that even though it's certainly something like six thousand two hundred meters. It feels more like 7 Thursday. So it feels quite high but also I'm Denali it's it's brutally cold like really cold and you have to live in snow for the full few weeks that you're out there which is really hard work on the body and for you and you have to carry all your stuff up and down the mountain on sledges which is a lot lot of weight. So yeah, there's certainly a lot more brutal like grunt work that happens on Denali wage doesn't have on average for example, so yeah, they're all a bit different. I would say having been on telling him climb Denali. The Everest is hard to do just because you have to deal with the altitude. We just took a tough one and what about K2? I haven't climbed K2, but you know K2 they do the same thing to every year they put ropes down it so It's not quite as easy as Everest cuz it is generally steeper in its gradient. But it's the same style, you know, people use option people have sharp as they have a fixed rope on a month or so and it's not to say not every Ascent is done like that, of course, but the vast majority of this sense are done like so it's you know, it's you're affected you bringing the mountain down to your level a bit when you do a job and there's nothing there's nothing hugely wrong with that. It's just a question of style and ethics right? And on Everest. I know there's the dead zone right where you can only be there for what maximum 24 hours, Is that right? Well, it depends some people at half an hour some people a couple of days, you know, well,.

"Because I was young and I was climbing a lot out here and it was funding pack my climbing basically cuz I it allowed me to go climbing as well because it ends up being my job just being in the mountains and taking photos of people but I you know, if I'm in the mountains that don't have a camera with me, just never I would feel naked almost by me going climbing is just as much as not really creative process, but to me, it's just as much of a photography process or filming process is the actual client. You know, when I get climbing, I'm always looking out for spots where I know that would be a good shot with good location. I'll often reads every single body beforehand and I live on Google Earth and I see how the Sun and Moon for night time changes over the course of the day. So I know where I want to be on each climb for certain parts of the day for these exact shot. So there's so much research that goes in beforehand. And yeah, I just love it's mostly I think if I did a huge Alpine route, I didn't come away with a good photo. I'd be a bit disappointed which is crazy cuz most wage just super excited to completely but I need a bit of both actually but to be a great experience. And you know, I mean, know I mean you did climb Everest, right? So did you use some it ever say did you just climb it that you made make it to like the I know there's different camps. There's how many cameras or five. All right. Yeah for camps. Did you were you able to reach the summit on Everest? Yeah. Yeah. That's awesome. Just once or twice just once once wow thoughts about that. How was what does that process look like? What's the kind of from just from from preparing for IT training for it? I know you didn't just go for climbing you went for other reasons, but tell me a little bit about that process on Everest..

"Observation distance in miles height as determined by wall, determination of height with revised correction for refraction mean of measurements. Twenty nine thousand one hundred forty one. The height twenty nine thousand one hundred forty one feet is still bird, thanks to small as it has yet to be corrected for the deviations of gravity. But though it is a more reliable result than twenty nine thousand two feet. The letter is still to be retained in maps and publications of the survey of India. As to the name, it was called Everest after the distinguished surveyor, general of India under, whose direction the triangulation had been carried out one result of which was the discovery of the mountain from the Indian side and Nepal. It is not a conspicuous peak on account of its lying so far back. No native name for it could be discovered, and Sir Andrew. Aw. The successor of sir. George Everest called it after his predecessor from the Tabet inside. It is much more conspicuous, and as general Bruce, stated in his lecture to the Royal geographical society. In November, nineteen twenty and is Colonel Howard burry found in nineteen twenty one the Tabet call it Jim lung which Colonel Howard bury translated, the goddess mother of the mountains, a most appropriate name. But the name Mount Everest, is now so firmly established through. Out the world that it would be impossible to change. It it is therefore now, definitely adopted. Now, this mountain, so coveted by mountaineers is unfortunately, situated exactly on the border between two of the most secluded countries in the world. Nepal and Tibet to reach it. The climbers must pass through one or other of these countries and the difficulty of getting the necessary. Permission is what has so far prevented any attempt being made to attack Mount Everest, but recently access through Tabet has become more possible. And it so happens that it is on the Tabet inside that the summit, seems most accessible from the distant views that could be obtained it from sun-dok fhu beyond our shielding and From Compass Jong into bed a ridge running from the summit in a northerly direction.

The mountain might be approachable from that direction. At the same time, the dependents were distinctly more favorable to travelers than they had ever been before the chances, therefore of at least exploring Mount Everest, were much more promising and major Rawling was planning an expedition of exploration when the war broke out, and he was killed Mr. Douglas fresh field would certainly have taken the matter up during his presidency of the Royal geographical society.

"On. All right. That is funny. Okay. So as we approach expedition Everest, the attraction, we find ourselves on the outside of of Asia in in animal kingdom, in fact, is we we find ourselves on the outskirts of a NANDA per, and that's that's what I'm going to stick with that pronunciation measure. That's exactly it in a little village called Zirka song built in the shadows of the forbidden mountain, which is the gateway to Mount Everest now directly in front of us. We see the main building and this used to be part. This is a series of building that used to be part of a tea plantation called the Royal a non per T company. Are you gonna laugh every time I say that? Oh boy. And this company previously used to ship. It's t- by train from Zarqa Zong through the forbidden Matt forbidden mountain pass. However, the plantation has since shut down to mysterious circumstances reportedly having to do with the legendary yeti so now these buildings now house, the Himalayan escapes tours, and expeditions, which is now using this this using the t train the train that used to transport the team all the buildings all the stuff has been repurpose for this new Himalayan, escapes tours and expeditions company. So that's the that's the sorry. What's incredible? Is that there's so much more back story to this? Like I'd left a ton of it out to save it for our companion episode next week and the backstory stuff is so fun to watch too. So if you have a chance, you should not only listen to our podcast about it. Because it's going to be excellent. Yeah. But you should also. Look it up on YouTube because there's some great historical footage on YouTube. Yeah. The some really cool stuff. So. And so when we when we're standing there, we see right in front of the building before we go in we see to our left. We see the marquee for it. Now, it's not this metal sign. It's not the typical it's actually a rock formation. And it has a banner on it. That's hung on there that that says expedition Everest, but it also has warning signs that we had that have been posted by the locals because yet he has apparently been causing trouble protecting the mountain, and then we also see prayer flags and there's there's also like totem like alter. Just just idols. Yeah. All around beautifully. Carved. Just amazing. It's it's cool. The different interpretations of the yeti alone. And then we see prayer flags being hung as well everywhere. These are those those pendens those those bands outside also in the in the courtyard outside of you, actually, see them everywhere you go through Asia. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. But then in the distance we see to the right? We actually see a ransacked temple upon a mountain, and then beyond that we actually see the forbidden mountain pass. And then they're in the very furthest distance of the structure, we do see we do see Mount Everest. So I think it's important to note that we are actually not going to take a train to Everest looking for the Eddie. We are actually getting on a train to the base camp of Everest. And we need to pass through the forbidden mountain pass on our way there. And we've been warned and will be repeatedly warned that the yeti could be countered. So if you have your fast pass you enter into the right? You there at the tap style. You just go. And then there's a very short line. You presumably have all the supplies that you need you're prepared to go on this. Because you booked your trip ahead of time. However, if you don't have a fast pass any need a book your trip now. And so you go in through the left and the first the first place you go to the first room. He get to when the enter this building is the booking office. And it's just like everything else in this attraction, it is heavily themed with authentic items from from from the Himalayas. And you know, I I love it out of the board of tours is offensive. But it looks seemingly right, right? Exactly. It's selling the story for sure, but you see it's it's a booking office. You see this nineteen forties television, which I think is cool. You see this old printer and computer? The nineteen ninety s early nineteen hundred. Well, let me you're not everybody. But I definitely had one of these desktop. Yeah. And that's one thing. I heard Imaginaire say like everything in Asia is supposed to be present day. It's not supposed to be stuck in time. You know? So perhaps it doesn't have all the amenities that we're used to. But it does have in. You know, like when you pass by the see in the women's the women's restroom that building that houses that like, you know, it looks like an internet cafe, and it's just supposed to really be modern times. Okay. And so that's the booking office. And and so then when you move out of that after you, get your your your expedition book, you go into the courtyard now, you're just kind of going through the village on your way to the to the train boarding station. I guess and so and all of the bushes around this area in the courtyard are all tea bushes. Yes. Or they're supposed to look like or they actually are. I don't know. I think they are. Well, says specifically not to pick any, but maybe we should pick two or three in the analyze it. And is it dry it and see if we can't make TI of it. I do think it's I do this call. I didn't if you can't I didn't if those are truly tea bushes, then that's cool. Yeah. I didn't know grown. If I want to drink tea from those Telea's, I'm at children's hands all over it. Well, you clean them the end. But like how clean can that TV after being touched by a lot boiled? Well, you dry it. I there's a whole process that would kill any bacteria, but Canet. So when we're out in the courtyard. We see we see kind of what what looks like a village that perhaps is is on hard times. It's kind of like a dried up not a creek. But, you know, something that looked like water may of once flowed through there, we see statues and figures of the yetis we see more prayer flags hanging around. And then we see, of course, like, like prayer cups. And valuables offerings kind of being if you are a parent excuse me with with heavy pockets of change. This is a place where you can offload a lot of that. Yeah. Yeah. It's a 'cause sometimes can be a long, wait. So it's a great place to create games of like throwing the quarters into the Cup different things like that. And that's that's that's precisely what has ended up happening, especially once you get into our neck structure in line, which is the yeti, man. Dear now mandir is a temple that has. Built for a deity in the center of the village this one, of course, is built for to pay homage into two. You know to honor the protector of the mountain. And it is loaded with tons of woodcarvings. I mean, if you can really stop and look around in this thing, it's it's really cool. And this is very this is all like handcrafted in Nepal. The brought it out, you know, and put it together here. It's all very authentic. But as we're going around, we have to our left, a bronze statutes covered an offering of money and fruit, and jewelry, and valuables, and prayer cups, and all that very I just love it with every incarnation or or depiction, I should say of the yeti it. It's just fantastic to see the diversity there. So cool. But to are to their there when you're in the the man, dear there's that middle section that you kind of wrap around as you're heading into the supply shop, but right there in the middle, you do you see you see another altar you see. And that thing it's just loaded down with money. And that's a really good place to to to to to toss change in there to I think they actually had like like Himalayan money or like, you know from from. Yeah. And I think that just made people think I'll throw my money there too. And then yeah. Like, you said it does become kind of a game because there's so many different surfaces on which to get the money to stay and stuff kinda like small world where there's different levels of. Surfaces and that money gets scooped up occasionally and put it into the the wildlife. Und- cool. Yeah. So moving on, then we we find ourselves into another richly themed area the trek and tone bus shop. And this is that supply shop where we see tons of supplies including cans and dishes and crampons and ropes and sleeping bags and backpacks in different different packs. We see the shopkeepers caught and his stove there. It is you know, he lives there. Yeah. That's great. Frozen. Yeah. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. That's right. Then sure. Then we see like pictures of the king and Queen and just all sorts of of small details. Like that that just really sell it. Then we move into we move into the yeti museum. Now, this is an old t drying room from the old t company as been converted into a museum. And when you're looking around if you look up, you can actually see these big giant kerosene lanterns that would've at one point been used to drive the t- as you're going around. You know, you still see the original tea company sign as well. We see we see castings carvings and images and photos all around. This is such an interesting room. It's always just a shame. If lines going fast. Well, yeah. I mean, it's never a shame. When the line is going fast. I guess, but it's it's really give you enough to look at here. Personally. I'm obsessed with yeti and Bigfoot just I love that. As do a lot of people. But what's interesting is? There's a lot of artifacts from the different. From that region that they brought over and it's all very authentic, and so they really sell you on it. And once you get into this yeti museum. I feel like you really start to feel like you're seeing proof of of the yeti's existence. You know, he kind of really buy into this idea. They could actually this is Bill. And I think nothing sells that better at the point that they put in that mystery of the lost expedition where they have that broken tent, and they have the shoot up camera and canteen in the bench shovel and everything else that would be from a campsite that's just being completely destroyed and has like thing marks in it rip. You know, claw marks. Yeah. That's a really that. Is a well timed it. Well, placed of vignette that they have there. But but there's other things like that giant footprint cast. There's. The fast pass line. Right. Yeah. That is. Yeah. And then there's the there's like the blurry, photos and staffing. Like, okay. Maybe this isn't well, and then there's different things like bear bear and lion and gorilla skull like that kind of sacred. Yeah. Yeah. There's a reason this there actually we can talk about that next week. Okay. So as we move out of the the museum, we're actually there's there's a I didn't write this down with there's a sign there from the expedition company that was like eh forget everything you just saw like. Safe. It's the yet. He's not real just kind of reassuring. You just keep moving along get, you know, let's get on the train. Let's go. So we do we move along. And so now we get to that loading area. This is the area you have the the train platform outside. But this is also part of that where you where you just kind of do a quick switchback before you actually go out to the low near and this is where they really use the magic band's just like again reference mall world, even though we haven't done it right through at the end of the ride it gathers information from people's magic bans and puts it up on the screen. So there's my credit card number put your room number. Yeah. No.
