How to pay attention to you
"Good morning, it's Carol Bradley. I'm coming to you from my car. I am sitting in my car overlooking a river close by to my house the Schuylkill River and you know, I love to record these morning messages in different places because it helps us to access different parts of our mind off of different different ways of of seeing the seeing the world seeing ourselves. And so I think it's important for us even as in what we do for work and how we create to continue to change things up to look at life from different perspectives different places different times of the day. It's how we say fresh. It's how we stay on the verge literally. So today I want to talk to you about knowing you getting to know you not me get home. No, you know, I'd love to do that by the way, don't forget to reach out to me, but you getting to know you and how you operate and how you work off and how things are are humming along in your mind and body. I think in this day and age of the busy mind which we've been talking about. It is so easy for us to forget ourselves. It's so easy to ignore off. Patterns habits that we've accumulated information that we're holding onto it's so easy for us to not even see how much speed we're living on. Or how we're overthinking things. It's so easy to be the frog in the boiling water. I talked about this Parable a lot because I think it's so profound that you know that frog you throw it into the pot of boiling water. It knows how to jump out ain't instincts immediately, you know what to do. Don't try this at home. Who knows if it even works, but it's a good visual, right? But if you put the frog in the pot of tepid water and you bring it to a boil slowly, it doesn't recognize. What's happening? We are living. In that pot of simmering water and we don't realize how much we are being asked by the world to take on. How much information is being? Thrown at us every second of the day. I don't remember the stats, but it's like hundreds of thousands of bits of information bombarding mind every day our kids mind. We don't realize the the the puck schedule that that we are have become accustomed to. The lack of sleep that we think is normal or that we we think is, you know, admire Apple. The crazy busyness that we share with each other. We think the busyness is means we're more important. This is the water that we're simmering in and we're slowly boiling ourselves to death. Our nervous systems are not wired for this kind of load or stress. And so we've become chronically stressed me personally. Have become chronically stressed. Adrenal fatigue inflammation weight gain brain fog. I am and have been there with you. And I'm so grateful for it because it allows me to speak from my own experience as opposed to being a teacher. I'm just a human in process right there with you. So in this message today, it is a call to get to know yourself to get to know what your busy mind is so busy doing that's why I that's why I talked about wage rates of the busy mind as being just just these landmarks that you can recognize. Sloppy brain crazy busy overthinking information overload autopilot are just a few. What is your busy mind too busy doing when we start to become familiar with our patterns it is then. At that pivot point that we give ourselves the space to start to redirect how we're living. And these are our practices and I'm going to get into it in the next few weeks few months. Who knows who knows how long I'll be doing this. But for today get to know you pay attention to what you're doing to what your busy mind is doing just take no no judgement my friend on speed crazy busy sloppy brain and and your own in fact tomorrow we're going to do a gut check tomorrow. We're going to we're going to be tuned into and identify some of these things for today lift up the hood of your car of your own mind and take a look underneath. Let's start to get to know how long are currently operating so that we can lubricate we can make some changes we can tighten up some screws where we're needed.

After 2011 Disaster, Fukushima Embraced Solar Power. The Rest Of Japan Has Not
"Before the earthquake before the NAMI and the nuclear disaster Japan got nearly a third of its energy from nuclear power. But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye. To the home she once shared with her husband and three kids and for Cosima it's less than a mile from the Daiichi nuclear power plant where three reactors overheated and exploded in two thousand eleven. They left fast only taking what they could carry. Their things left nearly exactly as they were the day everything changed to coffee, Cup sit on the kitchen table her daughter's old school uniform is laid out on a bed a calendar on the wall is still flipped to March two thousand eleven. clueless you the kit ago. Muluzi. Nice. This is sad. She says this House System Nice, but we can't come back. She looks around your moon to Ni life is so different diddle do remind us. To start from nothing even less than. A totally reinvent ourselves after the disaster digging up this. She's here to give the keys to government officials. This house will be bulldozed soon and the land used as part of a storage site for radioactive topsoil scraped from the earth and the massive cleanup effort Tschumi heads upstairs. And takes one last look at the bedroom shoes to share with her husband Hitter Yuki. He died a few years ago suddenly. And then she walks back down to hand over the keys. The thing is pretty unceremonious though in reality she only says, she said goodbye to this part of her life. Disaster when her family piled into a car and drove as far south as they go to the southern tip of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Here, she's a single mom to her bubbly ten-year-old son Cagey who was just a baby when the disaster happened, he doesn't remember Shema at all her other two children are grown and live nearby, and she only has found herself within unlikely job running a small solar farm. On a big hill overlooking the tropical landscape Ma hidden is yet. She never imagined. My life would be like this guy when we first moved here, I was in my late thirties my husband was in his forties unanue issue we were like, okay. Do we get new jobs? So we decided to do this. We saw as investment for the future month on her husband worked at the Nuclear Power Plant for over twenty years and for him, the switch to solar was purposeful. He felt that nuclear power had betrayed him do on didn't He grew up really believing nuclear power was safe and then he lost his home to come see today the energy collected by these panels has allowed her to build a new life. The power is sold to the local utility company and brings in thousands of dollars a month when her husband died suddenly a few years ago she only took over the work and the family placed his grave in the center of the solar panels show me walks over to tall marblestone.

A message to future generations she explains looking away device. My biggest wish is for renewable energy to take over I mean look at my old home, it's going to be a storage site for nuclear waste. We can't deal with that kind of wasted drivers go. Joey's wish might not come true though her family started their business at the right time. The price was so generous and also delegration was sold loose. So anyone can register. Naida is the executive director of the Institute of Sustainable Energy Policies. In Tokyo, he says in the early years after the disaster Japan pushed renewables to help fill energy gap left after fifty four nuclear reactors were taken off line the. Government offered big incentives, new investors, lots of people like me and her husband jumped on board to build smaller operations. incorporations rushed in to build massive solar and wind farms but also the liberation was more strict compensation dropped. It got increasingly harder for alternative energy producers to connect into the power grid edith says, this was partly due to the big utility companies trying to maintain control and the government allowing. It to happen the sitting kind of a body of to north to Laputa increase anymore, the institutions make a big difference that's Jennifer Sclerosis of George. Mason University she studies energy policy in Japan, and she says, there is technology an interest for renewables in Japan, but the bigger power companies in government need to commit if people in place do not watch to implement policies to empower the economics and the. Technology innovation then it can't happen regardless of how advanced technologies earn regardless of how good the economics look many of the major utilities as well as the Japanese government are still waiting to see if nuclear power can make a comeback and renewables just aren't that reliable yet. So in the meantime, I would assume the defaults going to import gas import coal eater agrees is the most the early sick and Not so optimistic future, but one place in Japan that is optimistic about Renewables Hookah Shema the local government here has set a goal for the entire prefecture. The third largest in Japan to be completely fueled by renewable energy by twenty forty. It's a real turnaround for a place where nuclear power ruled only a decade ago especially in the former exclusion zone near Daiichi, there are solar panels everywhere from small ones on roofs and hillsides to massive mega-farms along highways making use of land available after the disaster some of these panels are run by big developers and others are not. Lake the solar panels on farmer. She get Yuki Corneau's field. He's seventy four years old and this land has been in his family for generations he gestures around it. This is all my land, but it's nonsense. Nonsense because it's relatively useless the wind carried radioactive material here after the disaster and the government has scraped off all the topsoil in decontamination efforts. The farmers here can't really far much anymore. So small local power company came and asked sugar. Yuki if they could rent land for solar panels, he said, yes could you go I was really worried after the nuclear accident how would we get power most of his neighbors also agreed but that means everything is different. Now he says there were Rice patties all around here with tiny frogs that created a kind of soundtrack for his life now it's quiet. He misses the frogs a lot and he says, and he doesn't make nearly the same amount of money as he did farming. But She Yuki says he sees this as a necessary change. He has nine grandkids they all live far away now but they were just in town the other weekend for visit running through the fields. Suze my grandparents farmed here my parents do. But now it's time for Change I've realized it's a new season pitcher. This he says looking out over the solar panels is for future. Generations Khatlon store NPR News Fukushima Japan.
Jfrog and Sumologic Set Initial IPO Prices Amidst Wave of Interesting Private Rounds
"There are new IPO filings from both Jay, frog and sumo logic to companies that filed in that great IPO wave of a few weeks back we have been tracking both companies impending debuts because we care a lot about them, their software companies, it's been venture capital money at play that puts them right in the very middle of what we care about here at tech rudge. So the news. To s a filings when it comes to developer focus J. Franck, it is going to target thirty seven dollars per share at the top end according to this initial range, of course, and could raise as much as four, hundred, ninety, two point, two, million dollars, and we did some very. Rough math this morning. So you know have the jobs. So in fact, check us but we believe could be worth as much as three point three, billion dollars at three seven dollars per share it not counting select shares reserved for its underwriting banks. Turned into sumo logic it will target twenty one dollars per share for an IPO that could be worth three, hundred, Fifty, seven, point, four, million. That's how much could raise in the debut and if you do all the math. It could be worth two point, one billion dollars again, not counting shares reserved for underwriters more of both of those to come on the site of course, but it's great to see those ideas moving forward making stores markets. It means we're not going to be bored for weeks. There's GonNa, be lots to talk about. So get excited
'Back to School' shops hit hard by virtual learning
"And so many students staying home this fall is hit local retailers hard that rely on their back to school shopping. Rene Perkins owns the funky Frog Resale Shop in Rochester, where students are beginning the year online. She says. It's been hard to know what to sell. I did buy for back to school and hope that they were going individual little take along feeding utensil like fork Spoon knife set that's inside a little container with a carabiner so that they could each have their own eating utensils. But, she says, With so many classes now online, they've been hard to sell. Still, Perkins says she's managing to stay afloat. I was fortunate to get one of the Oakland County grants. I'm still looking at other grants that air coming available still And she's hoping for an early fall to catch the change of season
Welcome to the USA
"Whole over WANNA. Welcome to another episode of this week in travel. My Name is Gary coming to you from the lovely state of Wisconsin where I have nothing but beer cheese and brought were since I have arrived. And that is legally the only thing you can eat here we've been or not. That chuckling voice you hear in the background coming from the land of smoke Mr Chretien. It's not just smoke also smoke fire and really hot but other than that. It's a lovely time to be in California. You don't say really in California you'd have flares. Wow. We have guest we had over the last three days. I just saw the number I. Think it's ten thousand different lightning strikes. Ten Thousand Eight, hundred, and forty, nine in a state that tends to get one thunderstorm every three years. So that's a little unusual for us. So you're making up for lost time. That is correct I believe it's also possibly the end of days that is. We're expecting frogs next. It's twenty twenty. I. Think those guys are going to get nailed with just a massive earthquake. This year I was one of the Salton Sea and they said, you know that's the kind of one of the anchor points of San Andreas fault so could happen. It. would be the capstone in this year. It would just you know. I. Think I things that could happen. But yeah. Well, speaking of which the man will go into the sea when that earthquake happens Mr Spud Hilton. From San Francisco. He's he's technically on the North America Plate. The senator is just misses San Francisco. At thank you for Thanks for pointing that out that that is great comfort. Father had a theory that everything from the San Andreas Fault East would fall into the Pacific Ocean. Your father was rather unsuccessful land speculator is this. Yeah. He he hopes trade I think that was pretty much the deal so We're doing okay here in San Francisco but I'll tell you sky is never been a well, not never been hasn't been this color in a couple of years put that way. It reminds me of the last time I was in a in New Delhi. They were burning the fields. It's it's that sort of thing. I'll here. It's just nice. It's like in the seventies everyday and it's just it's just really nice. Panther Schools? In all seriousness there they had a vote wants to what to put on the license plate in one of the options was. Which I really supported. Packer fans you'll ever that I'm sure our guest. This week are two of the most all American. American people I know of America's Tim Tamsin Meat Pies. Gene Craig Makepeace. From. Why Travel Pod? We're doing pretty good. We actually in Raleigh north. Carolina and we had north quite last week. Yeah own tropical storms earthquakes we got it all. Tony Warnings Yeah we're pretty. Steady. Well. I have a theory that everything evens out in terms of like bad weather. So like California you may you know have earthquakes But. Other than that. It's just really nice So you have it very nice and then you have these punctuated really bad things and here it's just kinda crappy like every year and that sort of what evens it out. So. I. Think it all. It's just in what sort of dose you get it. But yeah expose you guys didn't sign up earthquakes when he went to North Carolina. Now, we're expecting nine hundred. Ninety trimmers you know luckily, we're actually on insight forty on the way to the bank so we didn't feel anything. We escaped with a couple of hours best leave. Well. Let's go to our first news story while we're on the subject of. Extreme weather. the hottest temperature perhaps ever recorded certainly the the best the highest verify temperature on the planet earth was this week in death valley in Furnace Creek. Where they got a temperature of one hundred and thirty degrees Fahrenheit or I think it was fifty four point one degrees, Celsius. Which is Crazy to hunt. Every. So often they have these these heat waves that come through valley, and so there was always a news team there and they try to fry an egg in a frying pan. Just. Left out in the Sun. And I just before we got on I was watching CNN try to do this and it actually didn't really work. They had like a black frying pan and they cracked an egg and like some of the white parts of the egg started to cook and that was it.
Cows With Eye Images Keep Predators in Arrears
"In Botswana farmers grades there tattle at the edge of the OKAVANGO Delta. The region is teeming with wildlife including hungry predators with a taste for beef lions and leopards in particular. Ambush. Predators, they often rely on the element of surprise to creep up and take down that Prank University of New South Wales Conservation Biologist Neil Jordan life losses can be crippling to some of these farmers and the subsequent retaliatory killing of predators in response to that is a major cause of population decline in large carnival. But what if there were a simple thing farmers could do to cut their losses the idea came about.

Save The Whales. Save The Tigers. Save The Tapeworms?
"Most of us have heard of saving the elephants or saving the polar bears. But what about saving their parasites scientists are increasingly finding that parasites are key part of ecosystems and many risk of extinction NPR's lauren summer explains. When your job is to study parasitic worms, not everyone wants to hear what you do for a living. It's not a popular topic of conversation cocktail parties. I can tell you that Chelsea would is assistant professor at the University of Washington parasites a major public relations problem they're gross and slimy and most people don't really like thinking about them. But the fact is that they're really important in ecosystems would. Says just look at a flat worm she studies in California Ponds I. The parasites starts as an egg inside a bird, the birds about the egg, which infects snails than it goes from the snail to frog, but the parasite needs to get back in a bird to finish its life cycle. So it causes deformities in the frogs legs, which makes it easier for birds to catch and eat them which helps. Sustain. The bird population would says, it shows how humble parasites can influence the entire food web. But if birds are threatened, we're GONNA. See some parasites decline possibly to extinction in the presence of environmental change, which is why team parasitology released a new parasite conservation plan. The first step is simply identifying them of the millions of parasite species only about ten percent are known to science says Schuyler Hopkins of. North Carolina State University. We know nothing about them. We don't need another name Oh definitely don't know what they're doing with the ecosystems. Many parasites are just as vulnerable as their host animals are to climate change and habitat loss but even though an animal may be listed as endangered, it's parasites aren't, but they could be added alongside their more visible hosts. It would be a really great way or easy way. To get a lot of mileage for her site conservation because humans tend to gravitate to animals like us. It is the wolves and the grizzlies and the polar bears mostly the mammals that really get people's attention Jacob Malcolm Works for the advocacy group defenders of wildlife. He says, it's not all bad. That humans focus on those charismatic critters saving their habitat can also help the less charismatic species in their ecosystem. So whatever chances his group launches a save the Leeches campaign pretty close to zero. So now's the time leach lovers of the World Unite Lauren summer NPR news.
Pitcher Plant Symbioses
"You know is a big group, florist speaking Southeast Asia is insanely diverse, but then just even think about it from symbiosis specifically like there's already a laundry list of possibilities in there. So how do you even begin to start to sort through where you can make your mark on the science because as part of it as as like a young eager scientists in trainings to be like, okay. Where do I fit in here? Very. True. Yeah. That that was that was quite a process. The first two possibly even three yet mostly the first two years but Essentially what I did is I took a strategy to to find that niche I, kind of just tried everything. Works but. I will say. I did start wanting to focus on the symbiosis between the plants and the the frogs which marina them. That such, a an unusual niche interaction with barely little known about it. So I I thought of that is oh, that would be a nice place to. State my claim but. There there's a reason why some things are not so while studied. In this case, the interaction is not so common as her interactions with insects. Amazon permits again is is is a key thing. So apparently, there's at least one region insider walk in Malaysia which it's not so uncommon to find it but then getting the permits and work, there is another hassle but. As I mentioned like the the more I read about the group and just seeing I just had so many questions and still. Have so many. Questions A on. The first chapter is not one that I anticipated really. So while I was working on trying to. See if I can find breeding frogs in in Singapore I. Wasn't really getting data on that and but I noticed this color polymorphism of the the the common species there nepenthes. Priscilla's. Added on that. But by first chapter ended up looking into coloration. Fees and. Studying that from evolutionary perspective and then also teasing apart what are the possible adaptive benefits of the differences in Ignatius that you see. So even within a species, there's variation between red and green editors and you could see within any individuals species but that was not a question that I went in with right and that's important to realize is how much of this is informed budgets being out there walking around being curious you know that's part of it to kind of have to enjoy what you're doing and and enough to kind of have that relaxed state of mind as they like. My notice that there but not there that's this color not over here and even on the same individual and it's cool that those can then just creep up into your work and become a big part of it without ever really realizing it. But that's where you know having the passion for the system kind of comes into play because God forbid you sent her on something I didn't want to do that and I should have said that in the meeting kind of thing. But Again. You're in the super bio diverse area. You're studying a group of plants that are super charismatic in also diverse themselves and you mentioned you know these Priscilla's a common species in that area and and as that another limitation to the work to as you mentioned, just finding frogs breeding in pitchers alone is difficult but you don't want to stay your entire PG or really. Any research on an organism, you might find maybe two of in your entire time surging or have to climb repel into all this crazy stuff just get to it So is that a big motivating factor to is just being able to work with species where you can get enough data and ask the kinds of questions to to even start investing the sorts of stuff Yes definitely. and. That's A. That's a nice thing about nepenthes actually. So all although. It's this some exotic species from. Our perspective from coming coming from the West sides difficult. Get there bought once you're there once you're in those places, they're usually locally pretty abundant. You can usually get a lot of plans when when you're in that site. Let's really encouraging in also again, if you're like us, living in the Americas, no experience with any of the tropical pitcher plants outside of maybe botanical garden or a nursery like Oh that must've been a sight for sore eyes just walking into an area that is dominated
Beetles eaten alive observed escaping from frog's other end
"Biologists studying the water Beetle finally discovered why it can survive, even though it's constantly being eaten by its primary predator, the dark spotted frog. It turns out these little guys it once they're swallowed by the frog. Just crawl right down and out the frogs, Anis. That's right, Dennis. It's a science word. So apparently 90% of the water beetles who get eaten by these frog survive by doing that, which is again just crawling right out that frogs Croker Come on Dark spotted frog to your food. Here's the amazing thing. And I love this. So the scientists were like, Okay, this is what happens. The Beatles come out alive, the other end. But is that just a natural accident of the Frogs digestive system or the Beatles actively doing it? So they actually and I hate to think of these poor beetles. Paralyzed, some with like wax so that they couldn't move and they fed them alive to the frog. Those Beatles didn't come out,
breaking down the elements of a pin worthy space + how to use pinterest to design your house
"So. What am obsessed with this week and have been for apparently many weeks in a row now is these rope lights that I got from Amazon and when I say rope late I mean actual lake chunky almost like boat rope like from a large ship. That's the only as I can envision it going but basically there light fixtures made of rope you cannot them and tie them. They come with a different number of ropes at the end is a light bulb I installed these as part of my frog tapes face that I did for the frog tape paint over challenge they were twenty dollars each I still cannot believe that every time they look at them, I'm amazed So talk about lighting on the cheap that looks really unique and really classy and very obsessed with them. I link them in the show notes so you too can be obsessed. Wait what? So my wait what for this week is that I am making over the entire podcast studio, which if you've been around here for any amount of time, you know that it's half of my closet because you get really good sound quality in your closet because the close absorbed the. So half of my closet is fully dedicated to the podcast and I decided to make it over not while we were on break because that would make way too much sense. But instead right now while we're launching season two so currently I'm sitting in the clues half of my closet squished chair unable as a look to the other side of the room where there is a half finished space. It's looking pretty good so far, and you can follow the full renovation slash refresh on him over it never skip brunch and really excited for this space because there's going to be a lot of unique things whether it's projects that you can take on in your own space like a diy couch a herringbone. Bone Wall or if you're a fellow podcasters and you want some tricky interior design tips for soundproofing, there may or may not be an upholstered ceiling in my future. So stay tuned for that. I'm really excited to share. Okay. So let's dive into today's topic, which is how to create a pin or the space. This is a question I get all. Of the time I, like a photo on Pinterest. How do I get it? How do I get my house to look like that? How do I get my room to look like my info photo? So this is totally a loaded question first things first, but I really WANNA, break it down beyond just how to look at something and duplicated in your space. To me, that's not really the point of Pinterest hand I think when people do that, they're left more times than not very unsatisfied with the space. If you listen to my episode about how I design a room, you know that I, start with function and how you want the space to serve you before we can even talk about aesthetics. So today I'm diving into all my secret tips for. How to approach pinterest inspiration how to recreate it in your space in a way that fits your style and feels like you as well as some insight that I think we don't talk about a lot or think about a lot when it comes to pinterest interior design. So hopefully, this episode is Super Helpful helping you rethink your space use pinterest as the amazing inspiration creative tool that it is and. Really, great those faces that you freaking love. This is something that I talk about as my mission it is my goal to help people see past what is pin worthy to really create a space that inspires them and is absolutely beautiful but as a space that they feel reflects them and serves them in works for them. Pinterest. Is One of my very favorite places on the Internet and I. Think it's such an amazing tool for helping US build out our spaces I wanNA break down some strategies that you can use to make pinterest work for you and to be able to harness it as a tool for inspiration and something that can help you visually design things and draw that creativity to really be able to kind of create the vibe in the function that you need for your space. So pinterest is not like other social media platforms. It's a place where we go to dream to collect ideas and I. Think it's such a beautiful thing because it allows you to hoard every idea imaginable that you could want and keep them in a place that's easily searchable. You can easily revisit in doesn't create clutter in your life which is. Super Helpful. But I think for a lot of people pinterest can be challenging or even discouraging because they're pinning all these pictures of their dream home and they're pinning all these things that they wish they had. Or? Things that they wish their space had. And then her left feeling disheartened or discouraged. By. My House that I have right now can never really look like that. In order to get that dream space I'm going to have to move or I'm going to have to have more money to buy a larger house or maybe it's just out of reach for me, and so I wanNA kind of debunk that line of thinking because more and more I'm realizing that there's a lot of women that struggle with this that you know it's kind of a love hate relationship right where pinning and we're dreaming and that's a fun exercise. But then if we're left with no way to get there, no way to really. Have our dream home brought to life. Then it's discouraging I firmly believe that your dream home can be the home you're in I talk all the time about how design is never really done. You never are really there this whole concept of a before and after is just to snapshots of a journey that's going to take you your whole life between your style, changing you growing as a person different seasons of life in which you need different things from your home. Your home is never really done. It's not like you decorate it and then it's finished, it never is finished, but that's the beauty I think of. Our homes is that there's such a process they are lived in, and that process is beautiful it can be beautiful. It can be pin the and I think there's just some tools that maybe you need to get you there, and so I hope that with this episode you'll find that.
How Do Tanuki Work?
"In June of twenty, two, thousand, nineteen, a couple in a small village in Nottinghamshire Great. Britain woke at four am to an eerie sound they ventured out and discovered an animal that never seen before his thing and attacking a goat on their farm. After rescuing the goat they took a photo of the beast and promptly posted it online. The animal was four-legged and fluffy. It moved like a dog but had a face and markings like a raccoon. It turns out there unwanted visitor was a canoe Katie sometimes called a raccoon dog. To learn more about these unusual critters we talked by email to Jennifer Andrew, a member of the carnivore team at Zuid Lanta she helps take care of zoo, Atlanta's to to NUKII or and Loki. Zoo, Atlanta is just one of two zoos in the United States that houses to not the other is the Oklahoma City Zoo. Indra explained to new key our dogs genetically and morphological logically speaking they get the nickname raccoon dog primarily because of their similar coloring and coat patterns. The only other true similarity raccoons is that they occupy the same niche as raccoons do in nature even though they live on different partners. To NUKII range in size from about one point, five to two feet long that's about point four, five, two point, nine meters with a tail adding another six inches or one point, five meters they weigh anywhere from eight to twenty, two pounds around three and a half to ten kilos therefore can be golden great or reddish brown but their shoulders, legs, and the tips of their tails are blocked and their facial markings are similar to a raccoons including the black mask around the eyes. They're originally from eastern Asia including Japan, which is where the word to new key comes from, and where the animal is a cultural icon images of have appeared in everything from folklore and literature to anime and advertising the mythological versions sometimes called Buckeye Nukii, our spirit creatures, tricksters, and shape shifter's that love gold and are often depicted with a big belly and a particularly large scrotum. Many modern Japanese businesses, displays statues of to represent prosperity and good luck. To not the animals, not the spirits where brought the northern and Eastern Europe due to fur-farming back in the nineteen twenties it's believed some new key managed to escape and began to live and breathe in that region. The HABITAT, they're most comfortable living in would typically be described as forested everything from deciduous trees to evergreens, but they can live in urban and coastal areas they like living near water. When they're in the wild Turkey to picky about meals as forager's they'll eat anything from frogs, birds, and rats to berries and carrion that is vet animals to not have been known to forage in garbage cans or pick over roadkill areas inhabited by humans. But do life is a little different, not only art Niki given different food to eat including kibble hard boiled eggs, veggies and fish. But because they're naturally forager's and a non foraging, setting their caregivers look for ways to make feeding time a little more challenging. Andrew said, we like to scatter their diet throughout their habitats to encourage natural foraging behaviors. They also enjoy interacting with problem-solving enrichment devices that encourage behaviors such as biting, chewing, ripping shredding, smelling digging, and dragging.
Translucent Frog Optics Dial In Camo Color
"Ocean animals have a clever form of camouflage transparent, but being through as far less common on land and was a few reasons why that might be Jim Barnett is a postdoctoral research fellow at McMaster University in Ontario Canada differences between air and walters. Surrounding media means life interacts differently with a transparent organisms body tissues. Any Ocean light is always coming from above and the background is less variable, but in jungle. CANOPIES light is coming from all over the place and the background is far more variable. Enter a little critter called the glass frog. It's not actually transparent. It's translucent that means it's skin in some places is thin enough that you can actually see its internal or hard at work most of the time when you see photograph of these folks, they're taking onto quite controlled conditions with either strong lighting like powerful flash. Photograph underneath on a piece of glass, and it's really the the bellies which are transparent and these folks are pretty small and thin and quite delicate Sarah. If you have a powerful flash on your camera, you can tell just lost light through them and they look pretty transparent. Barnett says the frogs translucent skin is actually a novel camouflage strategy that no one's ever really studied. Until now we're thinks is happening is that light is traveling through the frog interacting with the pigmentation about a lot of it does pass through the frog and bounces off the background Some of that light will be absorbed by the background underneath Roque. This'll some reflected of that becker a come back through the frog. So if a glass frog is sitting on a break greenleaf. In the jungle canopy, the light passing through its thin skin and onto the leaf, make the frog appear Brenner and color matching more closely with the leaf. The jungle canopy is filled with leaves, but it's also filled with predators, birds, snakes, mammals, and even invertebrates in search of their next meal these animals acquaint. Visual Systems are pretty cute into finding differences luminance brightness between different patches. So the quite good at finding prey based on differences between the background on the animals brightness and by being translucent sees folks are able to have an adaptive camouflage. So regardless of whether the leaf is dark or bright if the glass frog is sitting on it, it will appear to change to more closely matches background the study by Barnett and calling is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. With around one hundred, fifty known species of glass frogs in the World Barnett says the next project is to find out if the franc's translucence may differ based on their individual habitats. One thing is certain. It'll be hard to see what they find.
Science News Briefs from Around the Planet
"Hi. I'm scientific. American Assistant News. Editor Sarah Lou in Frazier and here's a short piece from July twenty twenty issue of the magazine in the section called advances dispatches from the frontiers of science, technology and medicine. The article is titled Quick Hits In it's a rundown of some non corona virus stories from around the globe. From, Turks and Caicos Islands analysis of Ano- lizards collected before and after hurricanes, Irma and Maria in twenty seventeen and eighteen months later revealed that the surviving lizards and their descendants had larger and therefore grippier Topaz. The team examined Lizard photographs from natural history collections and seventy years of hurricane data to confirm the trend. From Italy sediment samples drawn from the tree and see revealed hotspots with up to one point nine million micro plastic particles per square meter, the highest concentration ever recorded on the sea floor. Most of pollution comes from wastewater and sewage systems. Researchers say. From Antarctica, paleontologists found a fossilized forty million year old frog on Seymour. Near the tip of the peninsula, The FROG is related to modern ones living in temperate humid conditions in the Chilean Andes. From Iraq researchers probing the Turkish State Archives found the earliest known record of a meteorite causing a death. The object struck a hilltop in neighboring Iraq in eighteen, eighty, eight, killing one man and paralyzing another. From Japan results gathered from the KAMIOKA. Observatory which includes an underground detector tank filled with fifty five thousand tons of water, suggested intriguing discrepancy in how neutrinos, an anti neutrinos oscillate potentially violating symmetry between matter and antimatter. From Kenya scientists identified a malaria blocking microbe in mosquitoes on the shores of Lake Victoria. Every mosquito catalog with this apparently benign fungus was free of the disease, carrying parasite and experiments showed the fungus prevented its transmission. That was quick hits. I'm Sarah Lou Frazier.
The Yearning for the Unexplained
"Colin dickey joins us now from Brooklyn his new book is called the unidentified mythical monsters, alien encounters, and our obsession with the unexplained Collin. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me on I want to start by talking about another book when it came out pretty much a hundred years ago with a fairly lurid title. What was the book of the damned? Oh the book of the damned, so Charles Fort's as the author of the book damned, and he was a, he was a writer who I think he was. He was on a path to be a kind of I. Guess what you would call a crank writer somebody who had the sort of wild elaborate theory about how human civilization was controlled by radio, being sent from Venus or something like that he unsurprisingly didn't get very far with that particular book and it's it's. It's been lost. It was never published a it got rejected and immediate he he would spend his days down at the new. York Public Library he lived in Manhattan, he would walk. The New York Public Library, and he would just spend his morning reading various newspaper, and scientific, Journal articles about various strange planed things that that he came across everything from ball, lightning, two frogs and fish, falling from the sky, blood rains, just various bizarre things that nobody really could understand. Understand, or how good kind of idea what what was going on here? And he just started collecting those, and what came the book of the damned was this oddball collection of these unexplained phenomenon, and rather than advocates, some kind of theory, what makes the book of the damned so great and strangest? He just kind of puts it all out there and says we don't really have explanations for a lot of these things you know, hence the idea of you know the. The the book of the Damn these for fourth. These are damned facts. These are damned stories because they're. They're excluded from from science and religion was like the early x-files. Yeah, exactly, it's except without going so far as to even say that you know. Aliens are behind it. It's sort of I mean in his later books for it would kind of try in kind of offer a thesis, but those are usually kind of its weakest moments when he's at his best. When. He sort of just kind of throwing out these ideas without necessarily. Of having to answer them, just kind of putting them out there on the table for the rest of us to kind of marvel at our physical copies of this book still around Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah, it's still in print. That's actually in public domain, so they're they're you know you can get lots of different editions of it? I got this this Great Hopi Dover Thrift edition of all four of his books, which is like twelve hundred pages in total and the massive unwieldy thing that kind of falls me from apartment to apartment. All right well, we'll talk about your book now. which will explain why a? Book of the damned might figure into things. Let's start with your subtitle mythical monsters, alien encounters and our obsession with the unexplained. Give us a sense of what territory your book covers. You know enlarge party grew out of the two thousand sixteen election grew out of a lot of the sense of misinformation conspiracy theories, and all these things that were were floating around, and a lot of which was being attributed to social media which I. Think is fair and accurate, but I also. Wanted to dig a little deeper into the genealogy of where some of these beliefs come from and. What I found again and again is you know? Just simply telling somebody, the factual truth about an a given incident or conspiracy theories is usually rarely enough because these beliefs are operating somewhere on a kind of more primal level. I really wanted to understand how we became a culture. That is kind of yearning for the unbelievable. That is yearning for something that is beyond the reach of science and religion, and so ended up going back to crypt the bigfoot lock ness monster chew copper things like that as well as the lost continent of Atlantis, and Maria and an aliens in and UFO's sort of these these three threads that really define the modern particularly in America kind of the twentieth century America's attempt to find something, magical and mysterious. Scientific Rationale Yeah I was GONNA. Ask about who the we is. I'm curious are Americans. Especially Gullible do we have a particular history with conspiracy theory and this mass, hysteria or mythology I'm not sure it's goal ability, and first of all I mean I think that in some sense, there is an almost conscious decision to believe the unbelievable that that runs through a lot of this. It's not entirely exclusive to Americans. I mean certainly loch ness monster is a you know a denizen of of Scott, London, and the UK certainly loves Nessie, but I do think it is a by-in-large, a function of a kind of modern industrial age culture that has kind of tap out the world prior to. I Dunno, the you know seventeenth eighteenth century there were still literal monsters. There were still things that were unexplained. There were still hearts of the globe that that Western nations hadn't experienced a reached or whatever, and so you could still believe that there were strange things out there.
"frog" Discussed on SciShow Tangents
"The rest of us have to figure out which is the true one either deduction or I guess, and if you get it right you to San, book, if not Sarah gets the Sam Buck and remember, you can play home at twitter dot com slash sideshow tangents so sorry. Sorry, what are your three facts? So part of what so weird, an incredible about many frog species is the drastic change from a baby tadpole to an adult frog was sort of like what we were talking about with tales, so which of these Weird Tadpoles Israel? Oh, Weird Tadpoles! A didn't know. There are many kinds of tadpoles there are. You'RE GONNA learn about him. The number one after hatching the. The Tadpole of the species noted in Bonetti hoops out a sticky super glue like substance, a lump, small phytoplankton, algae, or things like that get stuck to that Glue Poop, and then the tadpole can just slurp it up to get food plus their nutrients back, and then they poop again and the cycle repeats, so they can cautiously venture out for food, but always have a safety lump of glue, poop stored. stored up number to the top of the species mic relaxes Harry. I are really muscular and flat. They have stiff ribs on their tummy. Hen bulbous is covered in a layer of skin, so they sort of look like tiny buff eels, instead of your typical tadpole, and that's because they don't swim around water. They live in wet sand need to be strong enough to burrow through the particles without getting. Shared, okay, good or number three, the tadpole of the species, Aska Fists Montana's is sort of like a mini hulk vampire, after they hatched, they have leech-like like mouths and suction onto the nearest living thing like a fish, in many cases, a feed like a parasite, and they grow about two to four times larger than the adult frogs about species, some even approaching a foot long, so these are really big babies, and when they those they get smaller instead of bigger. God'll Geez. How big are they two to four times larger than the adult frogs, some even approaching foot long. Will I hate that, but like the dogs are like two to three inches, and then bigger than that, so it can vary from like four inches, but some of them have been found to be very big beefy tadpoles. Okay, so we've got a tadpole that poops out a sticky superglue to catch food aid tadpole that looks like a buff feel and swims around in the sand, instead of looking like a tadpole so like. Like a buffy lm, I wanted to Google, but I can't because that would break the game for third tadpole. That's like a mini hulk vampire. These all got to be true that all seems perfectly possible to me that there would be any of those things. I love secreting glues. But I know a number of organisms secrete glue, and so that's making strong away from it I just think he wouldn't secrete it out your, but he. Superglue your but shot. That's a good point. That, that does go poorly. To baby chickens called Poopie, but now I don't know what it's called. But it is a real thing where they like the pasty. Maybe math like clean their little butts so that they can poop. You'd be immune to your own gloomy, though or is that how glue works I mean I think it could certainly be glue works. Evolution has all kinds of tricks up its sleeve, but then you have to eat your own, but to eat the food. Is that or if you? Don't mind. Eat now butts, though okay, and that's like they're like primary. Slash only way of eating. Yeah, for the first few bit of life when they're just hatch, so got buff ills in the sand as well. Yeah, this this'll fix me because you said they had ribs. And that's making me think about how bones work, and a tad Pau tables of bones, and they dispersed skull, and they grow more bows than not. Not even have a skull. What's so deal? I think they have faced a phone store I know frogs have bones right? Yeah, my guess is that tadpoles just. How few were I? Mean they're? They're vertebrates, so they gotta have spine, and then probably they got to have some for their muscles to connect to yeah, so ribs don't the question, but also I've never heard of a tadpole. It doesn't live in water well, the. Sand it's gotta be wet sand, and then we've got the vampire tadpole and problem with this. Is that like wouldn't somebody of told me? Tab Poll. I feel like that would have come up. Are there other things that get bigger in before? They become an adult oh. Yeah bugs do this all the time where their larva or than the eventual bug. I'm trying to find anything that will help determine. We've got fake and I have no idea. Yeah, I really. They're all very good. They all seem completely both plausible and also absolutely bizarre. I'm sure that every single frog every frog go pick a frog, and this is what I did for my fact fact. Bigger Frog something weird about that frog something weird about it. Right everybody the moment has arrived good at twitter dot com slash sideshow show tangents to vote, and now we will vote the bug loosing so boring by comparison to the other two. So I think what I think on it I'M GONNA. Go with that one the Buckley one I'm GonNa go with the buff feel well. I'll go I I. Don't know I'm going to go with the Butterfield to. I don't really have a reason well. At least you gonNa make me feel less lonely and our loss. Is the Buffalo. It is the buffet. He'll. Both got it right Iras really proud of my lies. They.
How Do Betta Fish Work?
"Hey Brain Steph Lauren Vulva bomb here. With their striking bold colors and flashy fins. Fish are one of the more popular types of fish sold for home aquariums. Perhaps because unfortunately there are a number of misconceptions about these creatures. The truth is that they're not as hardy and easy to care for as many believe Beta fish, sometimes called fighting fish are tropical fish native to Southeast Asia Wild. Betas typically live in rice paddies and other shallow stagnant bodies of water because these wetlands. Wetlands routinely shrink during the dry season. Betas hop from puddle to Puddle, trying to find a reasonably deep pool where they can hang out until the rains return due to these conditions, Betas developed what's known as a labyrinth organ that gives them the ability to obtain some oxygen from the air as well as the water. The sub order that includes Betas are sometimes called Labyrinth fish or Jeremy. Betas got the nickname fighting fish due to their territorial nature during the eighteen hundreds. Perhaps especially in what's now Thailand, the fish were bred for this purpose and fights were forced for entertainment. Betas were first introduced to the United States in the twentieth. Century, wild, Betas generally have small fins in our dull, green or Brown in color, but today's pet Betas have been bred to be quite colorful with elaborate fans with proper care, a pet beta. Beta can live for two to four years, but before you buy one, make sure you're aware of these five common fish tails about the the Beta fish. Perhaps the most widespread myth about Betas is that they can live in small bowls. The opposite is true Beta, fish need a tank that's at least five gallons about twenty leaders and ten gallons, or about forty leaders is better. The origin behind this persistent myth is uncertain but May. May come from the fact that Betas are often sold in small containers, and because they have some ability to breathe out of the water, but this can be stressed if they're housed in close quarters, especially if they share space with fish, perceived as rivals, small tanks being, there's nowhere to hide even when house alone or with fish that they get along with. They still need hideouts to escape to, but while the tank should be spacious. SPACIOUS, it shouldn't be too deep as Betas are more comfortable, swimming back and forth not up and down. We spoke via email with Matt. Layton a longtime Beta fish owner and editor of Vivo Fish who explained that Betas should be kept in tanks, no deeper than twelve inches or thirty centimeters, noting that their fins aren't that powerful. He said if it's too deep, the Beta may not be able to get up to the surfaces easily. Easily. It's heartbreaking to see a Beta struggling climb and then be pulled down to the bottom by his tail. Another myth is that Beta aquariums don't need a water heater or filter, but Betas are tropical fish that need to be kept in water, ranging from seventy six to eighty one degrees. Fahrenheit, that's twenty four to twenty seven, Celsius unless you're home never veers hotter or colder. You'll need that heater. A water filter is important to even. Even though wild Betas live in murky puddles without a filter, the fishes excrement and eaten food can make the water toxic, though be short purchase filter with a gentle flow as Betas. Delicate fins do better in calm water in addition that their fins could be damaged by the section in higher flow filters. Meanwhile, it's actually true that Betas don't mind being alone, and they tend to have issues with other fish, if male Betas are placed. Placed together or placed with other fish that have bright colors and large fins. Their natural territorialism often prompts them to fight. However they can definitely live with other aquatic creatures, such as ghosts, shrimp snails and African Dwarf frogs they can also live with other species of fish, but they do best with bottom dwellers was small fins. They're less likely to fight over territory like the coolie loach, female Betas can often live harmoniously together given adequate. Adequate space, which means at least five gallons or twenty liters per fish, but always introduce new fish slowly and monitor them guides. Online can help you acclimate your existing fish to the idea of new tank. Mate tricks like rearranging hiding spots in feeding your current fish before adding a new one can help, but you should always watch them carefully for a few days and be prepared to move an aggressor to another tank or another home. Another misconception is the Betas can live off of plant roots alone while Beta. Fish are often sold in small vases with the plant. Betas are carnivores, not herbivores in the wild they chow down on insects and Larva, so feed your pets, fish pellets or flakes specially crafted for Betas you can supplement with high protein treats such as blood worms and brine shrimp, but remember that fish can become overweight just like any pet, so feed in moderation, ideally only as much food as the fish can eat within three to five minutes finally. Don't expect a Beta. Beta to be layabout. Many people observe Betas and pet stores where they're often kept in small containers, hinder their activity, and many owners erroneously keep their efficient unheeded water, which makes them lethargic, but Layton says that Beta fish are playful in the proper setting. He said I've seen them. Push Moss balls around dance around their tank display their tails, and generally be quite active. Betas are inquisitive, and will interact with plants, toys, and structures, floating or sinking. Just make sure they're fish safe and don't have any sharp edges. That could hurt those beautiful fins.
"frog" Discussed on Stories Podcast
"What froggy does in Gray structure? Oh Law I know the King God. These raw to not king will ask to the other. Frogs heard them complain and laughed at the Grumpy Group. But the spirit heard it as well. She had given them what they'd asked for the leader they needed but apparently it wasn't enough for them. Oh Hey her. Voice said coming from the water itself to talk to the old bullfrog and his friends. You a charge. Yes we do you get those lazy laugh. Absolutely you see that is wrong. Yes please yes okay. Who suddenly there was a dark shadow. Cast over the grumpy group of frogs. What's that one asked way up in the air? The shadow grew larger as whatever it was approached from the sky. It's our new king said the bullfrog. The spirit has brought us the king. We deserve. He didn't know how right he was a second later. The shadow landed before them and spread. Its wings it wasn't a king but a bird a massive crane with an elegant neck and along hungry beak one of the grumpy frogs hopped up to it and bowed low. Greetings my Liege. The crane squawked bent down and swallowed the frog whole oh ono cried the bullfrog. The crane turned and let out a cry. That sounded like a t rex roar to the poor little frogs. It launched forward and gobbled up another of the group before the rest scattered in every direction. Run they cried everyone run. The crane darted among them swallowing grumpy group of frogs. One by one until only the bullfrog was left. He managed to jump inside the floating log. The spirit had sent and wedged way in the back. Go Away he shouted. Don't eat me. The bird balked and bore its beacon further snapping bear inches from the bullfrogs Saggy Lips. Stop Stall Up. He cried and then the water next to him formed a face. Oh this one. The spirit asked even as the crane screened and pecked harder ripping free a piece of old wood and nearly biting the bullfrog into it. In this one no please. The bullfrog whimpered pressing his bulky body into the water trying to the screaming crane beak as it snapped at him over and over but strong. Dare Shoe schlaize. He saw the crane finally smashed in and grabbed the bullfrog in its beak. No he cried. No WE DON'T EAT. King we don't need okay. The crane vanished in a puff of smoke and all the frogs it had gobbled reigned from its belly and splashed back into the pond. The bullfrog included. They dragged themselves wide eyed and sputtering back to the log. The spirit had given them so How did the king go? The Wardi Frog asked smiling around a fly. She was munching. Wow Law wouldn't you know it but we've come around to your way of thinking. The bullfrog said this here log will make up perfect king of the frogs right except you know queen of the frogs said the Wardi one Queen King. Either way is fine. The bullfrog mumbled bull like are. You sure asked the tree frog. We can always call the spirit back again. No that's quite all right. I think we're better off. Just you know having fun. The forty one offered yes Let's let's just have some fun. The bullfrog agreed then. He paused looking down at his big webbed feet We've never we've never had fun before. Could you maybe show us how? Oh love cars. She agreed and the rest of the day was spent teaching the grumpy group. How to play tag and hide and seek and Lily Pad leap and all their other favorite games and by the end.

"frog" Discussed on Reality TV RHAP-ups: Reality TV Podcasts
"Bow. Wow that's close enough for me at this point incredibly stupid but I love it about. Oh what are you wearing tonight? Don't worry I got my tie on. So you didn't need to wear a bow tie for this next performance because the frog had bells on this was a great performance. You dropped a bomb on me by the gap band. There was all money motif. I think the frog is playing their character. The best which I very much enjoy this like mobster frog with all the money and then there's no fault in the background simple stuff but I enjoyed it and then I was over the background dancers when they were trying to like hand the bag of money to each other behind him but then when they passed the money back to the frog himself on the frog took over. I was good with that. But I'm done with the backup dancers doing weird things amongst themselves in the background like either with the Taco when the fat suit folk walked in a line with the TACO. I enjoyed that. Because they're part of the performance extra stuff in. The background has no link to the performer. Then it just like makes trying to pull my eyes away and I don't want that and then we saw the frog do a little two step. Do some like moonwalk asked movements. I think the FROG has the best stage presence on the season foreshore. This was my favorite performance of the night by far and I do think last week. I said I don't see him being in the Fox zone. They met the judges. Mentioned it on this episode that he is and after this performance. I'm ready to say that. This is the Fox of the season really. I I almost want to disagree with you even more because you feel so strongly about.
"frog" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"Announced as taking place in New Orleans because while especially while it was in production and still in two thousand nine New Orleans itself had been so thoroughly affected by Hurricane Katrina that it forced hundreds of thousands of black residents out. And there's like and now we're GONNA. We solved racism in the nineteen twenties. Here it's just like right. There is a lot of yeah every like almost everything about the production of this movie is a is a very bad luck. Yeah for sure some of the sequences pretty though. Can we talk a little bit more about the love story of it so we already kinda hinted at this but this is another example of a love story that starts with a man nagging and undermining a woman He I says like ooh. I thought you were princess. But you're just a waitress. Then he calls her a killjoy. A stick in the mud. Who doesn't know how to have fun and then moments later they are suddenly in love like I joan where this comes from. He's also like the slimy as dude and I'm not talking about like the Frog Trans Relief. The Mucus Mucus. Like are you serious or at the town is like actually ends? Meal like what? Yeah Yeah. He's actually. He's such an asshole for sure and it's interesting to like throughout the movie like in regards to him they keep talking about like women are going to hold you dow like when he's at the shadow man. This shadow man is like he's like Oh if you've got a wife you won't be able to live your life or something like that right. It's for its frustrated. 'cause his whole character indicates to young people watching the movie that you can have all the ambition in the world you can get ninety seven percent of the way there but you still need a man with resources nagging you to achieve and another thing. Is that when NAVENE MISTAKES? Tiana for being a princess she clears it up right away and she's like no. I'm not a princess. I'm a waitress. If the genders had been swapped and it was the woman mistaking the man for being a prince. I feel like it almost certainly would have been a story about him lying to her for the whole movie and being like yes. I my prince who's also a frog and I'm not saying that like all men are liars and I'm not saying that women never lie but so many movies are about a man lying to a woman and not coming clean until the very end so I guess I liked that you know. Tiana was like no. I'm not the person you think I am. Tirrenia is she's the best she's an honest and she's nice and she works hard and also there's a joke where it's implied that frog navene tries to have sex with. Frog Tiana when they're like hiding in the stump. Yes yeah the alligators. He's like well we could get cozy and then she's like get away from me and it's like you're trying to fuck when you're a. I feel like there's so many you could do a drinking game about all the Times. He's mentioned women in the thing where he's like. Oh I dated thousands of girls and these affect boy. Yeah fuck boy. I mean and a lot a lot of Disney princess. I mean at least he has. He has more of a personality than many Disney princess. Do but Present is bad. I also don't even know like it's interesting because I feel like in the past. Whatever fifteen twenty years Disney princess have been imbued with personality more and more frequently? Which is good in one way but in another way. You're like well. What if we gave the princess more personality and more things to do instead of being like we have to know this man's interior life like I I don't I don't know I don't feel any particular way about it but it is interesting? Sure also there is like like you said like. I don't understand why she fell in love with him there. They didn't have he liked jazz. She seemed okay about jazz like she didn't seem obsessed. She doesn't like super enter. Yeah Yeah and then she liked taught him how to like many months Musher and then she was like now I love him. It's it comes out of nowhere where they tried to set that up and it just doesn't work and it comes off is at the beginning when she's serving Charlotte and bigger. Daddy also big daddy. She says where she says like the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So I feel like we're supposed to connect the dots of like when she cooks for him because woman she realizes that she loves him right. That didn't track it all the I don't follow the logic there right also. Did you catch the part? Where when he's trying to propose to her. I guess while they're still frogs he says you could not be more different. You're practically one of the Guys Aka. You're not like the other girls says it. And she's like according to this movie that's true. She is not like the girls. Were are like lobotomize they to Charlotte. Everyone is just done a disservice. Yeah We gotta take another quick.

Frogs acquire you mean kept cold yes liquid nitrogen cold which is minus one hundred ninety six degrees Celsius and he doesn't harm the sperm. Well we use a cry protective media. which part of my project looks to optimize? So we vary it slightly. Leon H new experiments so that we can try and kate the sperm alive when we phrase it and then when we saw it out it still myrtle so we have very success breath that if you can get up to thirty percent or fifty percent motel sperm than we can federal estimates with that so it's true. Some people were saying that the green being tree frog which is unbelievably famous. In fact my daughter had one. She called Jackson author Michael Jackson and we see fewer and fewer in Sydney. Yeah there Arafura round. The susceptibility varies from species to species but the locally endangered species the green and Golden Bell. Frog Oratory Oreo is the species that we focus on. You know lab and I've been able to cry preserve its sperm and throw it out and then fertilize some eggs. And then there's eggs grew you. And he became a tadpole in the tadpoles grew and then we have adult frogs. So you know the system works. Yes when you've done that for one species what what are the chances you're doing. Hundreds of species say the reproductive biology varies across the different species of frog in Ustralia but for the similar tree frogs Doug such as the local dwarfs edge rogue literary Phalanx. We've been successful in doing in that species as well and I don't see any other reason that we couldn't do it in a bunch of other similar nor spacey's why particularly tree frogs because there's lots of them there's common species that we can work with and then we can apply knowledge from that into the endangered species. The Golden Gopher Ahmad about the kid. I understood for the first time quite recently that there are different sorts of kindred yeah there are a survey recently tracked.

Do mycosis for Salamanders and there's also different strains within different localities of the disease presumably early in some other parts of the world. They do have resistance to they. I think some species as I mentioned even here in Australia have resistance. The differences ince's between the disease resistance main that some species can carry the disease without succumbing to it which can be problematic as well because it can spread the disease to other folks in the environment such as the greening goal bill. You're less likely to have a problem. In hot climates. Because the disease doesn't make the whole environment talking about heart your nicely Geared up I really admire your top which has got tadpoles and Scott Exits got all sorts of illustrate. Did you get that ready Major. Did you make it yourself now. A friend of mine bought it for me from the National Fist Willing camera because she knew that it was so close to my research and especially today she inspires me to ask. How do you you get sperm from a frog so l.? Lab is working on a hormonal technique. Where we can inject the frog with homer and they release that AH sperm in urine? We call that you're INEXP- because they only have one excretory tract and they it all comes out the clicker at the end. Yeah it's a far more officiant system. Isn't it so the spur must be resistant to the effect of urine firm is really interesting because it can become myrtle Hypo modique environment. So when it's released into the urine and into the point becomes tile. We've sort of used that knowledge to inform perform some of our CRI- Protective Media's recently I've been varying the concentration of sucrose in the media and using hyper was monarch or a low concentration concentration of sugar as low as one percent can help cryopreserved the sperm better. I love the word Hypo motic. I used it for years. But meaning lower osmosis effect. Yes not to be confused with hyper well I hope you really say thou frogs because September wired about them everyone loves them and other methods other than yours going on. That's one of the things I love about. My project is that can spend time in the lab and in the field but other papal doing monitoring of different environments and. There's a lot of really cool with on salt concentrations within the water so by raising salinity of upon conned by just a small amount. Then you can decrease the prevalence of kit should in that environment. So the fungus doesn't spread. Correct Rose Upton undoing her P._H._d..

An Indonesia frog legs soup is known as sweetie or spike is that because it's the only meaty part of the frog. Yes. I think so the the muscles are more developed there. And there there's not a lot of like excess muscle in like the main body part. That's where all of the organs are like tightly packed together. So yeah, the legs are like the only edible part of it, which is gross Indonesia is the world's largest exporter of frog meat exporting more than five thousand tons of frog meat each year, mostly to France Belgium, and Luxembourg I'll which is crazy to think about in France, they called queens the grown.

Because there was no way I was going to be able to replicate. Those sounds with mine own mouth. So thank you. Julia for giving me that that just means frog legs, the frogs legs of frogs. originally frog leg frog meat. I guess we're supplied from local wild populations but overexploitation led to a decrease in the supply. So this resulted in the development of frog farming and global trade in frogs, which is crazy. So again, the main importing countries are France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the United States while the chief exporting nations are Indonesia and China, the annual global trade in the American bullfrog mostly farmed in China varies between one thousand two hundred and two thousand four hundred tonnes the mountain chicken frog so called as it tastes Shikin frog..

But of course he did look down and felt quite scared. So he took even tinier hops even so he was getting closer and closer to the center of the high jump. Then out of nowhere came a loud noise. No, no, not that noise a different loud noise. It sounded like this. The sound was so loud that it need the rake, vibrate, shake a little bit frog, froze. Humus scared to move another inch. The animals looked toward the sound. They could see the people moving between the house in the truck with big boxes, hey, walk around the yard and make sure we didn't forget anything. We'll you.

The frogs and the turtles and the Koi fish? Well, not really. The Koi fish is they actually didn't really like all the constant leaping from the high jump.

All that was there was green and trees and some wild flowers that danced in the wind, the people, two of them came out of their new house. They lawn mower and hedge clippers and all manner of tools that people seem to us when they want to team things growing near to them. So the people tamed the green and they made it look pretty and they looked at the blank patch of ground. And one of them said, you know what? I've always wanted a hope.

One of the people ventured into the yard, but she didn't come to sit at the pond. Instead. She came with a rake and yawned a lot as she rate the yard, which was hopelessly covered in leaves. She raked and raked the turtles. The pond glanced over in wondered if she would come sit down, but she didn't then like funder clapping, bright clear day. The loud noise came shattering, the quiet.

The person saw the rake fall, but the loud noise was. How did it waiter? She met her headed back to the house. She didn't get it later. The rake stayed there straddling the ponds like a spindly fallen tree. Eventually the people came outside again, and the animals heard a new sound. And they thought maybe the people would come to the pond, but they didn't. In fact, they put up a fence around the pond for no matter the waterfall burgled and the Beatles skittered in the frogs hopped in the Koi swam and the rake remained like a bridge across the pond. One day a frog, lates megs in the pond. They grew into tad polls who swam circles in the pond. Then they grew into frog lit to begin venturing out of the water. Then they were little frogs. There were many of them and number of them left the pond for a nearby stream, but there's just one frog. We have our on whom we will call frog because that's easy. And let's face it. There are a lot of details to remember here frog, stayed at the pond frog, had some brothers and sisters to the all played at the pond and enjoyed the pretty rocks in the waterfall and the pond sounds frogs. Brothers and sisters also loved the rake, but they didn't know it was of rake, they called it the high jump. You see the rake rested on being pretty. The rocks and either side of the pond.

"And so you all decided to figure out how frogs got away with not poisoning themselves and rebecca you started by looking at the genetics of the acetylcholine receptor why were you looking there mmhmm so what we wanted to find out in as i mentioned before in this group of president prague not all of them are actually nuts and the ability to acquire toxins from what they eat has evolved a number of times so it's actually kind of a natural experiment and we can compare species that are toxic with but closely related species that are nontoxic ended up in a poor separate times because that how many times yuval in the in this group of frogs so i have actually been sequencing lot of different targets of their toxins one of which with this nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and i basically sequence this gene and then could sequences sidebyside group together frogs that were quiz enough in prague that work with enough and then looked for something that was common and you need to all of the question frog that was absent in one that didn't have us and in this way we figured out that they had a mutations in the binding site of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor so when we talk about this receptor were talking about a kind of we usually talk about a lock and key mechanism so it's kinda like a whole where the acetylcholine or the fppc dean is going to find an so you found changes around that pocket.

"Thing engraving now will start with a disclaimer i'm going to try to pronounce the word of this poison f f food voss after to dean at the gate at the beta dean you've gotta epa epoch beating at the feet of to say it over and over i would probably screwed up at least once but to get started rebekka there appear to be a lot of obvious advantages to a frog be poisonous it's so advantageous that frogs have evolves it at least four times can you run us through the different kinds of poisonous frogs they didn't realize there were different flavours if you will sure so we use the word the phrase quiz in prague chewed talk about all kinds of drugs but normally we will think of poise in prague they think of poison dart fraud and another frogs uh the scientific name abuse rogge live in central america in the name was in dark rogge comes from the fact that a group of beans frogs were are used to poison darts in western colombia even to this day that they they do this practice and at however there's within this group not all the frogs are toxic on an with in minsk group of wasn't drugs the ability to successor and use toxins for um the fence against croatian as evolved or different times but there are also other types of poison frogs that lebanon madagascar are in australia even an other types that live in central america and south america.
