Jeremiah Flood on Developing the Mind With the Body as an Athlete
"What got you interested in. The blend of cognitive development with physical development are basically combining these elements. We see in games without of training and everything that goes without with a mind body physical perspective. It started with rugby. Actually when i was transitioning from college. Football to rugby is awfully a huge difference in skill sets perception action for its catching keeping your eyes ahead of you and then passing. It really forced me to build that ability to scan the field. I didn't have that. When i first tried to play rugby and thought i could just use my speed and physicality but in rugby so i had to find a way to differentiate myself or just evolve myself and watch the best players a neighbor able to anticipate gaps set teammates up in gaps which is probably the most underrated thing about rugby is like i'll take these two on. You have a forty meter try. Go ahead so it would just watch a lot of film. The all blacks news from new zealand. Argentina guys wanna emulate and that led to reading the book legacy and they talk about it talk about keeping a blue head and i noticed in my games that i would not see the field. The field would be blurry so either. I was too stressed out. Didn't have control of my like breath or something like that so reading a book legacy keeping a blue head. That led to the book champions. Mind which i recommend for most athletes. It really gets down to the mindfulness part of being an athlete. How to set up a routine had a self talk is very important from their. Let the performance. The performance cortex the baseball book and hadn't realized that had no idea that decision making can be right. So those lead to Maybe there's something out there that i don't know an outlet again down the rattle of the playmakers advantage. That was the book really like set. Everything offered me. And then at that same time when i was finishing up rugby deciding whether to go professional or not i was working with these kids like the same that we we have now but three years four years prior. And and that's i started implementing things went based on feedback from parents that there is a disconnect between speed training performance trendy to the actual game.
Olympians: Halina Konopacka
"Today's we'll mannequin was one of the most iconic characters of poland's inter-war period. She captured adoration of the public with her. Outstanding style. intelligence sportsmanship and courage. Please welcome halina. Helena was born on february twenty eighth nineteen hundred and central poland. Growing up in warsaw halina excelled in many sports. She took up swimming ice skating. Tennis horseback riding and leader skiing. When halina was eighteen years old poland gained its independence after one hundred and twenty three years of russian rule. The country became known as the second polish republic. As lena entered her twenties her ability to quickly master any sport shapes the course of her life in nineteen twenty six. She set her first world record in the discus throw after just a few months of training was followed by two more records in nineteen twenty seven nineteen twenty eight halina never lost a discus event for the entirety of her career. She also competed in the high jump. Long jump javelin and pentathlon seemed. There was nothing she couldn't do. Halina made her olympic debut at the ninth olympic games held in amsterdam and nineteen twenty eight in a short olympic channel documentary. She said oh. The day of the discus throwing was july thirty first after a cool rainy morning. The tim'rous dutch son had broken through the fog and baked the greenfield's in gold the stairs leading up from the dark labyrinth. The dressing rooms ushered me straight onto the field to red circles. Throwing circles drawn on the grass and two curved lines remarked in chalk one at thirty five meters the other forty meters away. I had only one wishes. I picked up the discus. Send it where the outermost distance of forty meters was whitened with calcium the disc dutifully obeyed stormy applause. Thunderously stamping feet. Compliments questioned film and photographic cameras snapping all merged into one great chaos.

"It was an ambitious project that though it failed would become part of the iconography of a decade in september nineteen ninety one the first term residents moved in to biosphere to a three acre volume built to be an artificial materially closed ecological system biosphere one being the earth itself a texas oil billionaire. Funded it to study. How people might one day be able to manage a self sustaining ecosystem for life on mars. It proved to be a lot harder in practice than it was on paper. The oxygen levels would drop too low. The crew didn't really know how to grow crops for food. Their pollinator soon died out and the ants moved in not just any aunts crazy ants. My name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. They go marching to by two. They're the subject of to cgi movies from nineteen ninety. Eight and a picnic wouldn't be complete without them today. We're talking about ants. This topic comes to you by popular demand to social media comments an email. That's a new record. So thanks to rachel. A prodigious and kate from strange animals podcast. We really should think about ants more often than we do considering how many of them there are. I've often enjoyed dropping the fact that the ant population is equal to the human population by weight. But is it. The claim comes from one thousand nine hundred ninety four book journey to the ants by harvard university professor and a german biologist. They based their estimate on the estimate of a british entomologist who calculated that the number of insects alive on earth at any given moment was one million trillion. If ants make up one percent of the insect world that's ten thousand trillion according to the book individual workers weigh on average between one two five milligrams according to the species when combined all ants in the world taken together way about as much as all human beings. So if you're going to play on a seesaw with a bunch of ants you would need about a million of them on the other end to balance you out assuming you weigh sixty two kilos or about one hundred and thirty seven pounds which i will tell you. I don't with around thirteen thousand ant species worldwide. There comes a lot of variety. They range from smallest less than one millimeter long to over fifty millimeters or two inches. That's the aptly named titanic mira gigante so weights vary too but experts seem to agree the average weight of an ant is less than ten milligrams but even among experts. No one really knows how many aunts there are in the world. A bbc documentary claims. There are not ten trillion ants but one hundred trillion though it still suggests that the total weight of the ants equals the total weight of humans. Even by the author's own math their calculations are wrong. If we estimate that the seven point two billion humans on the planet weigh a combined three hundred and thirty two billion kilos or three hundred sixty six million tons and ten thousand trillion aunts weighing an average of four milligrams. Each we get only forty billion kilos or forty four million tonnes or about nine pounds of human for every pound of ants even if we allow for the smaller human population in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and the smaller humans. It's still back of napkin. Math at best one expert does say that the numbers might have inaccurate at one time. Probably about two hundred and fifty years ago. We must also remember that. Humans are getting fatter all the time. We're not just increasing in population we're increasing in fatness. So i think we've left the ants behind another way to try to wrap your head around. How many aunts there are is to look at the biomass of them. One of my favourite weird history and animated rant youtube channels sam annella compared the biomass of several animals and visualized them as spheres literal animal planet's for example. If all the blue whales in the world could be mushed together like plato. They'd make a spheroid about one hundred and forty meters or four hundred and fifty feet across blue. Whales are huge but there aren't very many of them. In contrast the chicken planet is more than twice that size three hundred and thirty meters or eleven hundred feet across their small. But we've read a lot of them. The math was tricky enough. What with trying to come up with a density for each animal. But sam found order of
Jetpack over LA: Fact or Fiction?
"Saw reference to this on twitter yesterday too. And so people I don't know what we're David. You know we're talking about here. Breath. So there are reports from airline pilots apparently, there are reports line pilots are saying this. I don't know if I've actually heard an airline airline pilot reporting but that that while on on the approach to lax, I think yesterday. They saw quote unquote a guy in a jet pack at altitude. And it's like. It's twenty twenty innings possible. I mean just right but. What have you heard anything that makes you think this could be real. It's twenty twenty anything anything can happen. Ain't that the truth well back that they seem to have gotten. Audio from. The aircraft in. The Tower. Off. Of a presumed Pasco site. that. Would lend a little credence to the to the story. If you know from a live ATC. I didn't bother to click on the links here to to you know I'm just doing the local TV stations. This is from. The war zone actually from the drive DOT COM, they're they're section called the warzone airline pilots landing at LAX report quote a guy in a jet pack unquote flying alongside them It's like, okay This was some guy in a Moonie. Okay. Yeah. Maybe not but according to this news report there's three different airliners. We just passed a guy. No jetpack. And this was. According to according to the tower tower transmission made on the frequency. To jet, blue twenty-three use caution a person in jetpack reported three hundred yards south of the La final at about three thousand feet ten mile final. That's a little segment audio. Save so suddenly. That's so now is this a do we? I don't know what kind of jetpack. Yeah. That's my question is it a? Is it a sort of a James Bond type of jet pack or is it these more recent guys who were jet? Wing? And fought. Because that's the pictures that they've. Looked down lower in the story as an example, they're not saying this is the incident. But there showing other showing. Images, they have of. Of this is the jet man the. Jet called free also but yeah. Rossi's jet man that's that's yeah. emerets did a thing a stunt I don't WANNA call. It was a promotion. That's true. Three four years ago. Where they had this guy, the jet man fly in formation with I. Don't know if it was a three eighty or trip seven but. The image. Here is a four engine I'd say it's a three eighty. Three. Right. He's He's got about half flaps. Put Slow flight in your book right over the top of Dubai and with two of these these jetpack guys. It's hard to tell from the image. But. It looks like they're a good five well, good couple of hundred feet. Above to the left of this three eighty. Is the Radio Tower American nine, hundred and ninety seven. We just passed a guy in a jet pack and our says, American. Nine, hundred seven. Okay. Thank you. Okay well, this is like off to talk to one seventy, two Andrew. This is he he flies overhead lax more or less daily going to and from work. And I'll have to see what he knows about this sky with must have been. Like A shorts three, sixty or something he's like because he says, we just saw the guy passing bias in the jetpack. So I don't know if he could be going the other way but. The JAMPAKHAO, ran this guy whistling. That's embarrassing. Yeah. That's I mean it's gotTa. Be a turtle prop. No RJ captain in there and self respecting RJ captain would fly that slump. Well he's on he's on vinyl. Still doing. You Know Buck Forty Bucks Sixty. Okay well. But I'm sure jetpack guys go faster than one, hundred and forty. Meter not at least. Once. All right well. You know we're we're obviously interested in more evidence. Yes. Yes. We want to hear more accounts of this and I will check in with one seventy two drew just because he's plugged into that community in Long Beach a lot. So where the he may have some some behind the scenes information about what happened over the. Thing that jumps out at me here. Is that. If he's on final. For La. At three thousand feet and ten miles out. It has to be something like Rossi's jetpack because none of the other stuff go ten miles. Right, I wouldn't think that the James Bond if there is even a flying James Bond jetpack these days I, don't know and that was the only good for. Thirty seconds. And that's when I first heard and the first the first report of this I saw on twitter was accompanied by a picture of that jet pack in the Air Right and I thought I sort of thought it was an actual picture which I don't think you now in retrospect that it was but. anyways. So all right. Well I don't know whether we'll learn more about this or not. But when I first heard about this, if saw this whatever was I, thought it was one of those. Fan like a fan driven. Jet. Packs Ah. Some some people have taken to putting just like you do a drone use a lot of motors. They, they've created some some contraptions that that have motors and turn small productive propellers basically -ducted fans. And get off the ground and get off. But basically, it's like a helicopter. So it's Ok off the ground but I don't think they have the altitude duration or speed to do this well. We know that they did it very long. So it did it. They did it for three or four minutes? Three or four different arrivals. So yeah. Yeah. Three or four three different arrivals and figure they're spaced about a minute apart Hey. Okay.

"forty meters" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Forty meters in your life on this Friday it is indeed the Dover Krueger and Brooks show thank you as always for joining us we appreciate it so because the NC a a is real and I describe a sometimes hilariously corrupt and ridiculous organization what I know FIBA just texted they're saying what the hell forget about us the international looking Olympic committee is like so you just do not go give us our props for being the absolute worst on the planet there is a possibility vats V. two number one picks in the upcoming NFL NBA draft will both sit out either some games and in the end inches young's case and James Weisman's case she's done according to his attorney is done in C. A. is real them an eligible this will have these two studs this is a really good chance he'll he's gonna go number one and why is it is obviously gonna go number one in the NBA that these two guys will have left school early because the NCAA don't like the fact that they were either receiving money or consorting with people that would give the money J. showing as the Buckeyes defensive lineman who was just an absolute stud I think he's got like thirteen thirteen have sex on the year he's not going to play against Maryland now that a house that needs him saying he's better than Nick Bosa maybe he's a stud is about about that he's also off the television screen but he's not gonna play against Maryland Ohio state is Needham and maybe longer emphasize the word maybe because chase young took a loan from a family friend so we can take a loan from a family friend if you've played college football because that could be considered cheating improper benefit but this news just coming down war your fans of gun familiar James wise because are now back in the position of having to watch college basketball game to see who they're going to warriors could get the NC a a I'm gonna read this straight the NC a a is ruled Memphis center James wise been eligible according to his lawyers Memphis head coach penny Hardaway yet to say pretty hard away assisted Wiseman is families moved to Memphis in twenty eighteen according to Weisman's attorney in the NC a a is deemed penny Hardaway Memphis basketball head coach a booster heart away and wise men I had a connection at east high cost high school in Tennessee were wise when was a student heart away was the coach we've seen as a ton in college basketball Tom where the head coach of a team of a college or of a high school team will follow strangely enough the player to college it doesn't necessarily go head coach from the high school head coach to colleges in this situation where penny Hardaway but a lot of times a high school coach will end up being an assistant coach or we'll have something to do with the college program at the stud basketball player goes to so this news just coming out that Wiseman who I don't know if he's I and Williamson levels of must see TV in college basketball but is definitely worth watching as you were saying Larry is highlights in his one and only college game was spectacular I dudes done is the NC a a don't like the way it got down to Memphis they're killing themselves I mean the NC double a is killing themselves this is the guy you want to watch is the guy you want to turn the TV on and watch it just in the live live let's move into the twenty first century instead of away I mean really it's it's the this is big business let's just do away with the amateurism let these guys play and people want to watch they will want to why they want to watch this guide now they can't watch this guy there is like literally unless your Memphis fan is probably not a reason to turn into a Memphis game for the foreseeable future maybe they end up being really good anyone turn in maybe there's other guys I think there's a pretty damn good recruiting class but if people want to watch this guy they're like Hey this guy could be the number one pick let's check him out let's see what's going on maybe it's pretty good is these are one of those I mean Williams and he's a different player and that was due in that was like everybody wanted to see that but people still want to see guys that are going to be in the top five they want to they want to see this guy before gets a league that well you know and here's the thing who does it hurt then heard him know what he's still going to be the number one pick if he was going to be the number one pick he'll still be the number one pick in the wee teams out there that say less mileage on him they're good for us I don't mind if you go and sit out a year that's a totally cool we've seen enough of you you're good to go interjecting V. partners for sure yeah it hurts it yeah it hurts the NC double a hertz ESPN hurts Memphis that big well done very impressive I mean everybody is suppose they care about you hurt them this guy still gonna get millions of dollars in B. is still going to get in here so go number one that's where to send a message in the NCAA also gets the keeper of the appearances out Hey man we're just trying to do what's right for the student athletes in the whole of the NC a a we all know that's be yes but who's not hurt the NCAA because they still make all of the money all of it so and and the chase young story I mean he's so we took a loan before he was ever a Buckeye and he's repay that loan I mean he's a he you know what what more is there to say I mean I I don't know I mean to me it's another guys guys the best player in college football by a wide margin he's gonna go number one he may be one of the great defensive ends in the league for the next decade but we're not gonna see him no we're not gonna seeming it's Maryland but it sounds like maybe he's going to play the next week if you guys know any more about chase young situation but it sounds like they're holding him out to kind of do their due diligence on this loan in on the exact details of it and how it got repaid someone and so five wonder if this were timed right before the Michigan game with a do it of course they wouldn't of course not now this is why didn't give me says you're right right they would know where they would do that go ahead and let and are they wouldn't do it next week against Penn state either which is why they've done it right now you see you Ohio state we see ages it look it some point they're going to figure this out and it did the guys is gonna play they love thank you Jimbo let let's cut look let's call it what it is what we've known it is for a long time its semi pro I mean a basketball and football semi pro especially football because at least basketball you can make a case if you want to they go overseas and play bingo overseas and play you mean a Brandon Jennings did a couple other guys did it if our an overseas team I wouldn't take you and I wouldn't pay for you to come over here and hang out for a year then go back to the NBA that to make any sense for me but for the player if you find someone that takes you you can do that you can go to the G. league now if you if you want to NFL you get nowhere else to go the man this is that this is it where you going and I don't remember day day football in Italy I don't member football in Australia then F. football places at basketball so even if you don't want to go to school you are forced to go to the NC double a your fourth for these three years two and a half points you have to go there there is no where else to go and let's keep it real wise men should have to go to Memphis deal with the Memphis because he had to exactly you should be able to write to the pros but if that's the with the bad it's funny though the basketball players have way more options than the football players I mean your football player you want to play in the NFL you better find your way to college or your chances of making the league go way way down I'm just looking at the NBA draft dot net Anthony Edwards went to Georgia Weissman went to Memphis this can I say a store went to Washington but will mellow ball is playing internationally the other kid Hampton is playing in in was in New Zealand so the in in there there's an international Avenue for the college basketball player that the football player really doesn't have his Wiseman stories fluid because I'm seeing here on ESPN that Memphis is working with the NC a a to get his playing status wise Weisman's bat he will play tonight against university of Illinois Chicago so Memphis obviously it is in their best interest to put on the full court press to keep him around so it'll be interesting to see where this story goes half past headlines coming up next we talk to Kyle Shanahan a little while ago we got an update on George kettle will pass that along to you next rollers crawlers and cast so much it's told bird Krueger and for us on KNBR one oh four five

Ocean Cleanup Project Finally Collects Plastic From Great Pacific Garbage Patch
"Philip now the creator of the device designed to pick up plastic from a massive island of rubbish in the Pacific Ocean says it's set collected plastic successfully for the first time the great Pacific garbage patch is three times the size of France let's speak to the creator of the ocean cleanup projects a boy in slot welcome to the program thank you this is incredible this this thing that you have created but I'm I'm just fascinated still by the great Pacific garbage patch being three times the size of front it couldn't be easy to to actually go then place your device in it wasn't easy. well no I think it it basically took five years for us to get to this point we actually had to do a lot of the research itself trying to map the great Pacific garbage patch with thirty Bucks on that plane we had to do Candace experiments and all the while we traded the the design and of course now now with this campaign with our first system in the package it's a thousand miles of shore it's one of the harshest environments on the face of the planet so just getting something that stays in one piece and actually works was so yeah definitely no hard and we from the outset indeed how how big is it describes as I'm looking at a picture online and it's just like it in a net and there's lots of barrels in it it seems to be made out of plastic itself. yeah so the current system is roughly a hundred and forty meters and in size so it's still a relatively small compared to what we eventually plan to deploy but the purpose here really was to to prove the fundamental principles behind it it's the analogy that we sometimes draw is size the price flock flyer from the Wright brothers obviously that wasn't the plane that was going to cost the the ocean but at least it allows us to prove the prince well it sounds like quite a task but it well that has been collecting plastic to tell us how how does it actually work. yeah so basically what we do is we create an artificial coastline there where there is no coastline so these that plastic flowed through the ocean powered by the the wind by the way it is yes yeah what what we do is we put a U. shaped barrier in the ocean and we slowed down by attaching a quite a big anchor to it I was sort of a parachute shaped device that slows it down which creates a difference in speed between the plastic in the system so the system moves slower than the plastic and that way we use the natural force of the ocean to let the the plastic catch and concentrated so okay doesn't collect Michael plastics and can name anything actually escape underneath underneath the device that you have. yes so what we now enhance this week is that we've actually been able to collect debris meters in size so the big discarded touching at all the way down to really in the micro plastic grapes one millimeter size plastics have been collected of course there's plans even smaller box yet Brady that the bulk of the mass is one millimeter and larger that's pretty impressive so the could this be the onset then to collecting all the plastic pollution in in the world's oceans well I I would say it's it's part of the mix of solutions that we need to of course once I think equally critical is is to promote classic from ending up in the first place in the ocean is first place so so of course you know we can solve this problem if the if the tap isn't closed but I think it yeah that it is the first time that there is a device that allows us to collect old size classes of plastic that's already

They are not going to attack you if you don't have that with them. It's simply keeping up with the monkeys. They are jumping from Wendy do another threes. So they don't care if the landscape is equal to leave. There is a rear Jose Domingo or Donas Gomez. He's a Primatology said the German primate center in gutting in the reason, he was pursuing thirty five spider monkeys through the rainforests of southern Mexico was to record their Winnie's. By analyzing more than five hundred calls. He found that when a monkey was separated from the group by more than forty meters or one hundred thirty feet it produced a lower pitched call. Then when the same monkey was nearby the group. Donas Gomez thinks the pitch toys may be because lower frequency calls are better suited to travel long distances through dense jungle the findings are in the journal plus one or Donas Gomez also found that other spider monkeys responded back more quickly when they heard one of the low pitch calls compared to a regular Winnie. Perhaps he says because there's something about the deeper calls that really gets the attention of eavesdropping monkeys. It's a relatable feeling for any human primate. Who's heard a crying baby?

A Pokémon Go Lawsuit May Lead to Moving and Removing Stops and Gyms
"If you play Pokemon, go course, you know. You don't do you play poker? Mongo? No. You do dad. Does you do? All right. No. He says, no. Okay. We have a difference of opinion here. Do you play Pokemon go? No, I play. Okay. I'm gonna admit it. I'm going to play Pokemon go. I liked the Pokemon. Go. But they're in trouble. The folks at my antics, it's a Google company. These are the guys who to Google maps originally. I thought you know, this location stuff, we'd probably could do more with it. And they created a game. I they create a game called ingress, and they used what they knew from maps. So they actually have a map in the game. And then it started with things like the post office and landmarks they become objects in the game that you have to take over and people different factions fight for it, and then a Pokemon go. They they took the same idea the same maps, in fact, even the same locations and on top of it. They put this kids game started with I think it started with a game. Right. And then this cartoon called Pok Mon. And so as you wander around you see the the US post office. It's a pokey, Jim. And in the gym, our people's Pokemon defending it, you can go in there and attack take it over get rid of their Pokemon put your Pokemon in there, you get points for that and stuff like that. There's also a little Pokemon wandering around you've seen people. It's kind of a crazy thing it started July twenty sixteen and for a few months then back way back when all you'd see people. I remember going down to San Diego are in Coronado. And there's a big grassy median strip as you. Go down the kingsway in Coronado. And it was it was like Woodstock was jammed with people what's going on the played Pokemon. See the word this one median strip had two gyms at either end and a bunch of there's another thing called pokey stops, which are just places you can collect goods. And there was one spot that had like just by accident. I guess randomly to pokey stops and pokey gyms. What's weird is is as a human? You look at it. And it just a median strip or. Post officer, church or sculpture. But in the world of Pok Mon. It's something else. There's it's called augmented reality is another layer of reality augmented on top of it. And so when you look in the game, you see the the map you see the streets. But you also see you don't see the post office. You see a pokey, Jim? You don't see the the bust of Lincoln. You see a pokey stop, and it's good. And so you wander round and the good thing about this game. I think Niantic has said something like several billion miles have been walked by players because you have to walk around. You can't you can't drive go over. I think four miles an hour. So you could run you could bicycle if your bicycle slowly you can't really drive unless you want to drive four miles an hour, which is no fun. So you have to walk and so player. This is great. It's getting families are out there playing the game. They're walking around. But there's a little problem. Of course trouble in paradise, by the way, get ready because this whole pokey. My mania is about to get done over in sometime this year, naive Antic and Warner Brothers are gonna release a new version of this game same idea map, places and stuff. It's going to be Harry Potter. Harry potter. Harry Potter that excite, you know. Okay. It's. Harry Potter you like. Yeah. You like, yeah. Okay. What if instead of pokey stops pokey gyms of Pok, Mon it was fantastic creatures, and it was magical space it places and instead of throwing a ball to catch the creatures? You were using your magic wand and Cassie expect petroleum a spell, and you would catch the creature. What do you think? Yeah. Okay. So that's going to be telling you Pokemon go nothing you're at a see mobs on the median strip again. So so a bunch of a bunch of homeowners filed lawsuit against Nick. Because. Players were congregating on or near private property. Because they were those private property was gyms or pokey stops there were places the players wanted to see now. Starbucks pays money every Starbucks in the country probably in the world, right? Every Starbucks in the world is a pokey. Stop. Good for business players go there, they sit. There have a Cup of coffee every five minutes to get new stuff for the pokey stop. So they stick around. I know I prefer restaurants that have multiple pokey stops nearby. Yeah. It's a sad said addiction. I apologize. But anyway, Nyanza got a little bit of trouble because not everybody wants people hanging around. I remember I was I was playing Pokemon go. Where was I I can't remember? But somebody came up to what are you doing? He said I'm playing poker. I knew it is that I have a he has a shop right at a shop or the parking lot somewhere around the shop is a is a gym at a pokey stop. He's a people keep driving up parking my parking lot the play the game. And then they leave all the time all the time constantly. That's what they're doing. Yeah. I said, yeah, they're catching creatures. Well, they'll shop in my store. They just be Philip space in the parking lot. And therein lies the problem. So it was a class action lawsuit. There apparently many lawsuits filed when this came out. Residents like the villas of Positano and oceanfront condo. In Hollywood, Florida who woke up early in the morning hours to hundreds of players quote behaving like zombies walking around bumping into things. Literally. This is weird redefining the meaning of trespass in the digital age. Because when you're playing these games, you're not looking at the villas, a Positano, you're looking at a gym, a Pok, Mon, Jim. Now, Pokemon go in the game says do not trespass while you're playing this game. So and and and the theory is that they only pick public spots for these gyms and stops like post offices. But sometimes it's a parking lot of a business. Sometimes it's near a business, but not in the business. So many lawsuits they have been now settled. On Thursday a bunch of homeowners. Submitted. A proposal settlement for review by California, federal judge if the deal gets the judges blessing, and it's expected it will. Niantic, creators of this game will become much more legally responsible for the Pokemon that roam around are visible to everybody. But those using the mobile app. Niantic, apparently agreed to settle. Dynamic is pledging upon complaints of nuisance or trespass demands of the removal of a pokey stopper. Jim. This isn't my US forts actually, the state courts, the company will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the complaint and communicated resolution with fifteen days, and there was a close to stop owners of single family residential properties get the rights of removal within forty meters of their properties. Niantic will maintain a database of complaints in attempt to avoid poor placement. When antics system detects a rate of more than ten players. Yeah. You can get twenty players in one of these things. Congregating a warning message will appear on their screen. Saying it'd be nice, okay. Just be courteous, respectful. You don't really this is smart because here comes Harry Potter? And you ain't seen nothing yet. I'm just warning you if you see zombie like groups of people in front of your building or your business. Stunner stand. They're not bad people. They're just pokey adult or in this case Potter addled. They'll move on. Plaintiffs wanted awards thousand dollars a piece for all property owners or renters within one hundred meters of pokey stop. Eight million dollars in attorney's fees, of course, under three thousand dollars in expenses. Looks like that'll be settled. So if you've got a strange bunch of people getting in front of your business now, you know, why? And now, you know. Your long national nightmare is almost over until Harry Potter comes out. And then all bets are

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, I'm more in Vogel bomb and during the Christmas season, Holly adorns houses, all over the world, the prickly green plant, and it's red berries, whether real or crafted from plastic are popular ornament for anyone wanting to make their space a little more festive. But where did this tradition begin? Why do we deck our halls with boughs of Holly every December? What does Holly represent in the celebration of Christmas despite its association with the Christmas season? Holly did not get its name from wholly the name of the plant is very similar across both traumatic and Latin languages and its origin is probably the proto Indo European root word Cal, which appropriately means prickly or to prick a proto Indo European being the ancient base language of all Indo, European languages even in ancient times. People took advantage of the sharp ends of hollies leaves druids hung it on windows and doorways to fend off evil, which is spirits before. Holly was hung in houses to accompany Christmas trees, it was considered to be a sacred plant by the. Druids well, other plants wilted in winter weather, Holly remained green and strong. It's buries a brightly colored red in the harshest of conditions. The druids regarded Holly as a symbol of fertility. Eternal life thought to have magical powers in Riddick. Lor cutting down a Holly tree would bring bad luck. In contrast hanging. The plate in homes was believed to bring good luck and protection. Holly was also thought to protect homes against lightning strikes Romans associated Hollywood Saturn. The God of agriculture and harvest and duct the halls with its bows. During the festival of saturnalia early Christian calendars, Mark Christmas Eve as template exhorted her meaning churches are decked though, supposedly saturnalia celebrators didn't allow some Christians to hang bows and honor of Christmas Christians adopted, the Holly tradition from druid Celtic and Roman traditions and its symbolism changed to reflect Christian beliefs today. Christians may consider highly symbolic of Jesus Christ in two ways, the red berries, represent the blood that Jesus shed on the cross on the day. He was crucified. Legend states that Holly berries were originally white. But that the blood Christ shed for the sins of humankind stained the berries, forever, red hollies pointed leaves symbolized the crown of thorns placed on Jesus's head before he died on that cross. Holly is known as Christ Dohrn in German, meaning Christ Owen, both of these symbols are meant to serve as a reminder to Christians of Jesus suffering. But they aren't the only stories tying Holly to Jesus one claims that the cross on which Jesus was crucified was constructed of Hollywood. Another says that Holly sprang up from his footsteps less. Common symbolism includes the hollies white blossoms, representing purity. And the idea that if the Holly used decorate a home for Christmas as prickly. The man of the house will rule for the coming year. But if the whole used is smooth the woman will rule traditionally Holly has been associated specifically with men for whom it was considered to bring good luck and protection, the female counterpart to Holly being Ivy. But let's take a closer look at the science behind this legendary plant Holly botanical name, Alex Aquaphor. Liam is a shrub or tree found primarily in North America Europe and Asia with hundreds of species of the plant ranging from short shrubs, two meters, high or about six feet tall trees up to forty meters high or about one hundred and thirty feet, it's known primarily for its bright crimson, berries, and prickly. Green leaves holies can be evergreen, meaning the plants glossy leaves are on the tree year round or deciduous. Meaning the leaves fall off seasonally white flowers bloom in may or June and with help from insects like bees, the female flowers produced those characteristic berries. Like its holiday companion mistletoe hollies berries are toxic to humans resulting in nausea and severe stomach aches when ingested not. So for some animals, though, berries are a vital source of food for birds such rushes and blackbirds. Although the scarlet berries are famously prominent in homes for the holiday season, they're not the only useful part of hollies, the berries are poisonous. But the green leaves have been used in herbal remedies for centuries for various medical conditions like dizziness fever anti tension, though. There's currently little medical proof of the plan's effectiveness. Also Hollywood is hard and compact making it excellent for carving. It's sometimes use to make chess pieces and walking sticks. If you have a passion for Holly three hundred and sixty five days of the year, the mission of the New Jersey-based Holly society of America is to stimulate interest promote research and collect and disseminate information about the genus Illex members can join a local chapter find out where to get the best Christmas Holly and gaze upon the Holly of the year.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, Brian stuff. Lauren Boko bomb here. Bulletproof vests have saved plenty of lives. But this gear isn't perfectly well bulletproof in all situations. So exactly how. Well do. They work and do bulletproof vests degrade over time can they fail. Let's look at a bit of history early bulletproof vests were mainly made from Polipara Fennelly tear thalidomide better known as kevlar. It was invented by. Stephanie folic a chemist working for DuPont in the early nineteen sixties DuPont, head already invented nylon. And spandex and was on the hunt for the next generation of high performance fibers synthetic fibres are created with polymers large molecules composed of repeating sub-units effectively creating a linked chain of molecules that are more than some of their parts. What folic discovered would eventually become kevlar and would see application in tires racing. Sales and bulletproof vests bulletproof vests today are made from polyethylene fibres a popular plastic polymer seen in. Nearly everything we use grocery bags toys. Plastic trash bins. And so on polyethylene fibers or P as it's called are woven in layers to form the guts of protective vests that are cheaper and stronger than kevlar in nine hundred eighty nine a company called Allied Signal developed a competitor for kevlar and called it spectra shield originally used for sale cloth. This polyethylene fibre is now used to make lighter yet stronger material for use in bulletproof vests alongside the traditional kevlar. According to a manufacturer of bulletproof vests, the layers inside a vest are designed to reduce the velocity of around to a point below the speed of sound at roughly this point the fibers can have time to react to the bullet and exert their toughness their strength and how much they'll bend before they break the more layers or the greater the density of the weaving of those layers, the greater the toughness of the fibers and the more capable they are of stopping a bullet most pistols fire bullets at velocities that are just slightly above the speed of sound. A bullet from a nine millimeter, for example, travels at around nine hundred eighty feet per second. That's about three hundred and eighty meters per second. The speed of sound is around one thousand one hundred and twenty feet or three hundred and forty meters per second. Thus a good vest doesn't need to work too hard to bring a nine millimeter bullets velocity down to eight point where it can make use of the toughness of its fibers and slugs from shotguns travel, even slower, so they are relatively easy to stop as well a rifle bullet, however is another matter entirely depending on the grain and quality of the propellant a bullet fired from an AR fifteen travels roughly three thousand three hundred feet per second. That's about a thousand meters per second, which is nearly three times the speed of sound it'll take a far greater density of ballistic fiber to stop that. Bullet most vests designed to stop rifle bullets are backed up with high density, insert plates made from ceramics and polyethylene that break-up a bullet into pieces and capture it vests without those plates would likely fail to capture a rifle bullet the. The material of the vests themselves is also prone to breakdown for various reasons kevlar, for instance, degrades when exposed to salt such as salt and human sweat the longer a person exerts themselves while enabled professed made of kevlar to the tune of years. The greater the likelihood of failure vests made from polyethylene will also break down over time. When exposed to UV light manufacturers say that there's about a five year life span on vests and cautioned against buying used vests, unless you know, the manufacturer date and the materials used to make it as with any product or idea or anything really a we recommend always doing your research, especially if your life might be on the line.

You just go to your home screen forty, three fingers control centre control centre and the bottom page. One of one of for me hearing devices is a hearing devices. Now I don't have air pod, but if I double tap on this, hearing not connected and go to the ride, listen, there's your live, listen. So that is how you go to the live, listen and hopefully they'll will help out for those with the Harry impairment. Earlier I showed you how there's a new grouping and the notification center, how the notifications are now grouped. If you don't like the grouping you can turn that off within this setting. So if you go to apple settings, Goto notification go to the particular app that you don't want to group anymore. So Nick sample Missa ESPN ESPN Sahlins benches button just opened up the open that vacations back button. And at the very bottom, we're going to get the fall off occasion, grouping, automatic button. So notation grouping is now set to automatic double tap the of give you the option to turn that grouping off. So you no longer have to have the grouping if you like it just in individual or by groups. You will see within the apple settings under battery, they have totally redone the UI interface on that. You get a lot more information about your better statistics, so you can get a further and better idea what the breakdown, what's going on with your battery life. So as you go into the apple settings, go to battery battery heading. Now we're going to do is we're going to keep swiping to the right until we get to the new area. Here we go. Three percent, low power mode, low power, low temp battery health button selected last twenty four hours, but okay. So here we go. We're going to get into the new information area. Last ten days button starch level. One hundred percent eight fifty a m. So last time I had this last charge. One hundred percent was eight fifty AM. So that was still on my charger at the time. So I'll tell you what the last time it was charged battery level heading. Okay. So here comes the information that was talking about. These are all new typical information you can review and see in details battery. Gary between seventy eight percent and seventy two percent three pm to four pm. Now, what they've done, they broke down in time suck or so between three pm in four PM is sh tells you win the high peak of your battery to your low point. So this gives you a better idea which our is maybe the culprit so you can get a better idea what is straining your battery at certain times. So you can go back and see what I did that time battery level area between seventy percent and sixty eight percent four pm to five pm battery level area between sixty seven percent and sixty five percent five pm to six PM. So that could be very useful. Now I'm going to go down to the next section here activity heading. This is where you could break up into usage twenty two minutes screen on twenty one minutes screen off. One minute. Three pm to four pm tells you how much time you were on it. How HAMAs batteries being used when his off from our two hours usage, twelve minutes screen on twelve minutes, four PM no usage, five pm to six PM. And if you didn't use a foam is going to say no use. Now I'm gonna go swipe up a little bit here row seven to rose seventeen to show activity button battery usage by heading cry. So the last segment is a battery uses by apps. So obviously this you can see what apps is using your usage of your battery, showing Titi button by twenty one percent. So twenty five percent of my uses is news fine to fifteen percents. You're to what's up nine percent. It tells you what is being used for twenty four hours. So if you go back up to justify chilling tippety button, she'll be the show batteries. Who's a fi, forty meters on screen forty minutes. So this tells you how much time you're spending or I should say how much of the battery is being used. So all forty money, forty minutes though. I was on this on time was none of this was in the background. So you skip one that has a background to twenty two meters on screen twenty three minutes. What's up? Seven meters on screen, three meters background, their nose. So you have some minutes on three minutes off. So that gives you a better idea how you're better percentage is being used, what's using it. What? So they break down the batter statistics quite a bit in those three segments that I've just showed you. In safari. There is a new feature for auto fill password on my show. You how this works when you bring up safari. So in this case are bought up apparatus and I went to the log in screen Amer go down to where has your username user name or Email address star talents.
