Suspect 'stands silent' in slayings of 4 Idaho college students; judge enters not guilty pleas
"A judge entered not guilty pleas for the suspect in the stabbing deaths of four university of Idaho students. Brian cober opted to stand silent in court to the murder charges. It doesn't happen often. The judge entered the not guilty pleas on his behalf. The students were killed in a rental home near the university of Idaho campus. Co burger was a graduate student studying criminology at nearby Washington state university. Investigators say traces of DNA found on the knife sheath inside the home matches co burgers, and a cell phone belonging to coburger was near the victim's home on a dozen occasions prior to the killings. He was also caught on surveillance footage repeatedly driving near the home at the time of the killings. I made Donahue.
Rutgers' unions ratify new contracts, formally ending strike
"Unions at Rutgers university ratify new contracts formally ending a teacher's strike. Three faculty unions that include thousands of professors part time lecturers and graduate student workers at Rutgers overwhelmingly approved four year contracts that include across the board raises and additional job security for part time lecturers along with significant raises and job security provisions for graduate students. This formally ends the first such job action in the school's 257 year history. The union staged a 5 day strike as students were finishing their spring semester and preparing for finals and commencement. It began April 10th after months of negotiation had failed to resolve disputes. I'm Julie Walker

James Tour and Eric Discuss the 'Primordial Soup Model'
"I ended up writing my book is atheism dead is because when we had that conversation about the origin of life, I was so astonished, I thought nobody talks about this. So let's talk about this. In the restaurant in Houston, New York. No, no, no. This is when we were with my former friend Elizabeth Blake Moore. You started explaining to me because I think all of us in high school were forced. It was on the test. It was always on the test. How did life begin? So what is the standard model since 1952 when people say, you know, to high school students, the costumes, how life began? What do they say? It's not only the standard model high school students, the standard model to college students and standard model to graduate students. It's in all of their textbooks. And from middle school through graduate school. And it is the primordial soup model. There is a pond. There's a body of water, and there are molecules in that body of water. There are some lightning strikes, and the molecules start coming together, and then they assemble into cells. Those cells start coming together, and you get little creatures that start swimming around in that pond. And then those creatures end up coming out of the pond and start populating the earth. That's the primordial model. That's what's taught.
What Stands Out About the Baffling Idaho House Murders
"I want to talk about the Idaho murder, there's something that really bothers me about the Idaho situation beyond the beyond the obvious and I'm going to walk through that. In a second here, so here's what this guy is by the name of Brian kober, 28 years old, allegedly allegedly allegedly. I want to just keep saying that. And the cops have done a great job looking into this. And so a couple of things. We're continuing to get more information about this. The man accused of murdering the four college students at the university of Idaho. It's become a rather incredible example of what forensic investigators are capable of these days. 40 years ago, this probably would have been an unsolved murder. And for almost a month, it looked like it would be, but thankfully, it has turned out that instead of being hopelessly lost, the police were steadily making progress, and yesterday we learned what evidence they were collecting. Coburger you'll remember was a graduate student in criminology at Washington state university in paulman. Which is only about 8 miles away from Moscow where the university of Idaho is. Co burger became a suspect because he was identified as the owner of a white Hyundai elantra. Which is an FBI analyst identified, which an FBI analyst identified as a vehicle of interest. From a mountain of surveillance footage recorded from nearby buildings in the area. From there, the evidence slowly came together as often the case these days. The suspect cell phone played a role according to investigators, koh Berger's phone show that he visited the murder House 12 time for the killings. Not only that, but he returned to the area of the house around 9 a.m. on November 13th before the murders have even been discovered. Not only take a pause here, if it's indeed true that he visited the house 12 times, then it does dispel the fear that this was just a random killing that he knew the victims. Now, why is that a fear? Because some people, I think, are now living in this state of mind that a knife murderer might just show up at your house. Now, by the way, he could just be staking out. We don't know we'll have to wait for the trial. But it turns out the most important piece of evidence against coburger might not be where his cell phone was pinged, but rather when it didn't. According to the evidence, released yesterday, coburger cell phone stopped reporting its location from two 48 to four 48 on November 13th, the exact time window where the killings occurred when his phone was turned back on. Coburger was driving on the road back to his university.

A Deep Dive Into Dried Tattoo Specimens
"You'll really struck by the humanness of these objects you know they're not really straightforwardly. Objects they a pieces of people in two thousand nine jemma angel then. A graduate student heard about a very unique opportunity. The chance to study a set of three hundred dried tattoo specimens basically preserved pieces of human skin with tattoos on them so creepy but gemma was fascinated. It's a morbid fascination there's something repellent about it also draws two at the same the skins are part of the wellcome collection assembled at a time when criminologists were interested in exploring a connection between tattoos and criminal behaviour jemma applied for the position and when she went in for an interview. A few of the tattoos were in clear. Boxes at the front of the room just went straight over to the and started examining them. I'm so drawn to. The tattoos had supposedly been gathered between eighteen. Thirty and eighteen twenty nine in france allegedly from criminals and sailors. But no one knew exactly who the tattoos came from or who collected them or how jebel wanted to get as many answers as she could. It's like being a historical detective of the three hundred specimens which vary in size subject and technique. One in particular stood out to her. It's an especially well preserved piece of skin from a man's chest. It has a large figure of a girl on it. She has long dark hair and she's staring back towards the viewer it's professionally applied and the girl's face though a little distorted is enigmatic. Even a little forlorn her face resting on her hands. Over the last century criminologists have paid special attention to this tattooed to theorising about. Its meaning and writing about it into the late. Nineteen sixties girl is described as being his true love because she's positioned on his chest of his halts. The criminologists there is reading the body like taxed but i was so that that interpretation was not quite right so it's been kind my mission against to reconstruct his

"Will be go. Okay yeah and then you know why that time. During that time i really got interested in this future research organization which you mentioned again another prophet which is run by early. Greasing scientists for early cure scientists out will make sure that you know all different challenges which we have facing how to address that outer bring more awareness about some shows. We are facing and that happens as you know. Taking a scientific approach worse collecting data and getting those data out in the form of publications and giving talks and making our audience on trainee audience of not only bad. You know making the funding agencies institutes and departments of ed. But these are some of the challenges. Trainees a facing. And you should do something about it so we become sort of like a mouthpiece off early career. Researchers asked me for a better training mechanisms. And before that you know. Did my please gene totally different pilak cardiovascular algae so so this is going back coming forward during grad school. I had a little bit of training hidden. They're out to get an engaged work with the graduate student association. But mostly things started doing my post op creating that i got heavily. Molten that nfl. We'll we'll talk as we go along. But yeah that's a brief history. It can be hard and especially in our type of researcher to doing appears to be heavily involved in associations or your research in those domains at least my experiences that they they're you know they're very time consuming and you kind of required to be there a lot But it's interesting to see that then. Doing your post. Doc you found. I don't know if you found or if it found you this opportunity to get involved. Can you talk a little bit about that about how it came about in about how important it was maybe even for your day today as opposed. Talk yeah absolutely. I think this is a very good question. Because as i mentioned when i was in grad school i i was my whole focus like any other students trying to finish my pg trying to get a grind. Go through candidacy exam. You'll get a grand publish papers publish. If not grind just get the papers published in graduate right and had no time to learn about what other careers on out there tonight. You know just like everybody else has said wanted to be a research faculty on not only professor right. But but then more and more. I you know Sought to thinking about it. And i i just i made me wonder like i. Don't i need to go. Look at the data. Everyone talks about like you know. It's really hard to get into that receipt. Research faculty positions and i started looking all around tracking sort of the phd students who went through my lobby and other. You know old department. Maybe like one or two people in like lost. Ten years became research faculty in that way. Do they all go. And it's hard to try this data you talk to departments n. p. is and research advisors and like i am not in touch with that person i do not know doing but for show dan not reading research anymore so with all those questions in mind i would say i default that in do postdoctoral position because i had no idea about what will be doing when i saw it at my post doc. That's when i was again. You know this question was always dead. You know where do they where do each goals and what are they doing. And how can we make sure that you know if if a large number of them are transition there. How do we make sure that we are prepared right now. So it would that search for data in my mind. I came across Future research Future research is an organization which started in boston area. And they were doing their symposium in chicago. Like big symposium bowed to indicate trainees on some of the the big challenges. They face whether it's all-stock salaries benefits about training mechanism. Lack of you know inadequate mentoring and bringing all those issues on lack of creative element. I participated in that egypt. See such imposing my woolen. And i was in the fundraising committee. This is something. I had never done flow. I'm gonna take a deeper dive. Let's see you know. Let's just get in with an open. Mind if nothing will get to put something on my resume. Let's see but as i started working with that organization. Oh my god that was an eye opening thing by up to see the data that there is no data on berea out for. I got to see that this really nice and fancy world of lakenham. A great scientist doing great research but there was no community engagement. Not no nuttal than the community. Is that how such a cool research i'm doing and then then we talk more to people. There was problems with the crimes. The problems with salaries the problems with proper mentoring and that really like made me wonder. Okay i need to do something about it. And then i talked the leadership day you know. How can it be part of your organization. And that was the time they were hiding there. Looking looking for woolen. Kids recruiting Maybe the you know their executive core that went in with all expedience which i got would them and then i was working with the other nation. I saw it and working with them. And i think the more and more data i saw the more and more more gotten interested in doing something about it and drive around that time. Well you know. I've done all this now. How do i and showed that there is some sort of training. We are providing right now. It was hard to find training or training. Avenues programs where i was in my post so again as i said i'll say it again that i got like a you know entrepreneurial taking risks. It's if nothing happens it's going to be an experience which will come out of it. So we took an initiative on our own s garage and post docs and started this organization. Chicago-based ordinate scientists ordination called china's chicago scientists. So as i said we started meeting in the bars and it was great. You know one of the biggest problems with Academics and researchers we sit in lab and only people talked to people in the lob. At max go into the breakout room and then you know break out and then sit there and have lunch and talk about a house. Your lab doing kind of thing. That's it just ends when you talk to the people we won't talk to people would want to interact so that's where that's not. The sort of like community in small organization started growing and then we thought it to work in the future. Beer in wyoming. That really got me excited about things and and let me take. Let me tell one thing you know because there's a lot of confusion about this idea that okay. Well if you start doing stuff like this you know getting warranting volunteering. For organizations getting enrolled in post doc association graduate decision nonprofits. That's going to take you out of live and you may not be able to focus a lot and you'll not be a great scientists. It'd be an example. I got a lot awards doing Inspite of doing all this. I publish really well. I got a grant and i think i had a really really successful post doc compared to like five sixty or my phd training. But i didn't do anything. I only did research so that him. Another myth buster and This be just the submitted. A paper on this whole idea that the increased participation incredible open. He's actually makes you more focus than hilts you graduate faster and you can you. People tend to have higher number of publications if they've been participated in these activities. So that's hey and other interest grew. We saw doing something about it. And that's how you know. It really started to sort of pave the way for like foundation. Or what i do right now. It makes me wonder if Actually the fact of diversifying a little bit what. Your brain is busy on doesn't actually have a positive effect. Which is you. don't get either tired or you. Don't get tunnel vision too much with with your your lab and when you come back you actually cross pollinated maybe ideas because he talked with someone else. You come back to work and you end up being more productive because you didn't just stay that whole day focusing and maybe stressing about about the same one thing super super interesting because it does counter counter intuitive you doing more stuff and you being more productive.
Astronomers Find 2 Black Holes Gulping City-Size Neutron Stars
"Eating another. For the first time ever. They've seen a black hole, gobbling a neutron star. NPR's Nell Greenfield Boys reports on how scientists were able to spy on this cosmic snack. Black holes are famous for their gravitational pull, which nothing not even light can escape. And then there's neutron stars. Neutron stars are very weird. Maya Fishback is an astronomer at Northwestern University. She says Neutron stars are made of protons and neutrons, the stuff you find inside atoms. But they're crushed together into a shockingly dense fear that's heavier than our sun and can comfortably fit within the city of Chicago. Now, scientists say they've caught a black hole, eating a neutron star in one giant gulp. And then 10. Days later, they saw another black hole. Do the same thing for these particular systems. The neutron star would have just plunged into the black hole without Admitting any light. If all this gnashing didn't put out detectable light, then how did researchers spotted by sensing gravitational waves? Those are the ripples in spacetime created by powerful violent events out in the universe. Gravitational waves were predicted to exist by Albert Einstein over a century ago, but not detected until 2015 Chase. Kimball is a graduate student at Northwestern, he says, the ability to register gravitational waves has been a game changer for astronomy. So it's like, you know, flipping the sound on on a silent movie or something like that. Where we previously just been watching the universe, and now we can listen to it through this gravitational waves. In this case, the black holes gobbling neutron stars generated gravitational waves that took about a billion years to reach Earth. In January of 2020. The waves triggered three giant
Adrienne Rich was One of the Most Widely-Praised Poets of the 20th Century
"We're talking about one of the most widely taught widely read and widely praised poets at the twentieth century. Her burke brought the minute show of women's lives into the spotlight challenging the idea that to right from the female perspective was uninspired and undeserving of attention. Let's talk about adrienne rich when she was born in baltimore in nineteen twenty nine adrienne rich's parents thought she would be a boy they'd plan to name her after her father. Arnold a doctor. Instead arnold decided his daughter adrienne would be a literary prodigy by the age of four. Adrienne could read and write by six. She wrote her first poetry book by seven a fifty page play about the trojan war. This is the child we needed and deserved her mother. Helen wrote in a notebook. Helen had been a concert pianist and had given up her career for marriage. And motherhood as much as adrian's childhood was marked by long hours in her father's library her mother's sadness and lack of agency left a lasting impression to in nineteen fifty one while a senior at radcliffe college. Adrian experienced her first big break her poetry manuscript. A change of world won the yale younger poets prize. The prize came with a publishing contract. W h auden wrote the foreword and reviewers loved it. At twenty two years old. Adrian became a critical darling soon thereafter. She won a guggenheim fellowship. Which funded additional studies at oxford. There she met alfred. Conrad a graduate student from harvard. Despite her father's disapproval and married alfred. Nineteen fifty three
NASA's 'Hedgehog' Robots Hop, Tumble in Microgravity
"Comets asteroids and hedgehogs these spiky little robots are perfect. Fit for low gravity exploration. This is innovation now exploring comets. Asteroids and small moons can be a difficult task. So what kind of design could be used for exploration a joint team. From nasr's jet propulsion laboratory stanford university and mit believe that hedgehogs are the answer. Let's hear more from. Ben hoffman a graduate student at stanford university working on the project. We've done a lot of modeling with various different types of analytical numerical models. And we've learned a lot the hop angle is more a function of the shape of the rover. So with this type of impulsive. Breaking cubic shape provides a nice forty five degree hop on average. The team is experimenting with fly. Wheels and friction belts to create the momentum that allow the hedgehogs to hop or spin across the surface. We took this prototype down to houston and flew on the vomit comet for two hundred. And if you guys aren't familiar with that it provides about twenty second windows a relative weightlessness. So in each of these twenty seconds we were able to test maneuver so far. The prototypes funded through. Nasr's innovative advanced concepts program are just what the engineers order
Jay Bradner and Andy Plump on Mentoring Young Scientists
"Now that you guys are in the positions that you're in how you view the. Let's call it a disconnect of sorts between academia and industry and let me try to kind of summarize it like brief history. You're like you know. I see ethan. Perlstein is in the is and he talked about this. Before the post doc i think it was a term he coined or popularized few years ago. There's just a limited number of academic slots for faculty positions. There's a lot of graduate students come up With that kind of being there. They have their eye on that price. But you know it's just very very difficult. There's not many the grant. Acceptance rate is something like twenty percent. It's very low first. Time grant winner for an r. One grant is somewhere around the age of forty so it's just very hard for young people to get established and now this year with the pandemic. There's just been a lot of people struggling Maybe lost a year of momentum in their graduate school or post doc careers to get those papers. Whatever that they need to get to get that faculty job or to get noticed in some other way and at the same time. There's all this amazing stuff going on. An industry like lots of money coming in lots of new drugs and vaccines and things coming up. The other end with products. And i hear people in leadership positions whether it's small companies or large companies saying we need more people. So how are you guys. Think about like making it easier for people to make this transition or make it more welcoming make people envision possibilities of what they can do
Machine Learning: The Great Stagnation With Mark Saroufim
"Mark. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for the beer. The inside for the show is an article. You wrote called machine learning the great stagnation. And i'd like to dig into your ideas there. You're currently working at facebook as a engineer. And that's obviously esteemed job speaks to your level of expertise. So i'll just start off with a fairly open ended question. What are the most acute problems in the machine learning culture ecosystem for sir. I mean so. I think you alluded to. There's a couple. But i think a lot of boil down to a personal incentives so so what i mean by that is. We've got into a point today where they're sort of been this long standing feeling and the community like as soon as we got to larger and larger models. The there's a paper called attention is all you need. You know referring to having attention networks and scaling them getting great performance and i've also seen the people say the meme like like money is all you need and i just feel like even though i feel i've actually two positions on this one. I feel this sort of intellectually lazy position. And i'll get to that in a second but just like upfront. What what's going on. Is that like well. Let's say you yourself work at an esteemed lab that you have. Lots of students can paralyze a bunch of experiments over all of your students and so the main algorithm and machine learning is called gradient descent. So you're optimizing some function but graduate student.

Facing Bias in Facial Recognition Technology
"Joy willem. Weenie is a researcher at the mit media. Lab who pioneered research into the bias. That's built into artificial intelligence and facial recognition and the way she came to this work is almost a little too on the nose as a graduate student at mit she created a muir that would project aspirational images onto her face. Like a lion or serena williams but the facial recognition software. She installed wouldn't work on her black face until she literally put on a white mask will. I'm we need is featured in a documentary called colleague bias now streaming on net flicks. She told us about one scene. Where facial recognition tech with installed in an apartment complex in brownsville in brooklyn. We actually had a tennis association. Reach out to us to say look. There's this landlord. They're installing the system using facial recognition as an entry mechanism. The tenants do not want this. Can you support us. Can you help us understand. A bit of the technology and also limitations and what i found was the tenants they already had it and it was a question not just about the performance of these technologies. You just it seemed like every group where we've seen struggle that was the group and that was predominant in that building but it was also a question of agency and control to actually even have a voice and choice to say. Is this a system that we want. you know. i feel like there's this kind of double whammy with this technology. Which is that. There's bias built in and because it is fundamentally good for use in surveillance and punishment it feels like it's almost disproportionately being used in communities where it is least likely to be effective or to cosimo's problem. Frankly absolutely here were saying. Is that if it doesn't work in terms of the technical aspect you get misidentification 's you get false arrest and so forth but even if it does work you can still optimize these systems. as tools of oppression so putting in surveillance tolls into the hands of police departments where we see time and time again. The criminalization of communities of color is not going to improve the situation. It just automates. What has already been going
Big Vape: The Incendiary Rise of Juul E-Cigarettes
"Didn't know just how big this story would become when she started reporting it. She's the health writer at time magazine and just released a new book called big vape. The incendiary rise of jewel. I think for most people at felt like jewel kind of exploded overnight. Like all of a sudden everybody you knew had one of these devices but the truth is it was a long time coming. The two founders of jewel labs met in two thousand four as graduate students at stanford their thesis project how to make combustible cigarettes obsolete. Both of these guys were smokers. They both had kind of conflicted feelings about that habits and they were looking for something better over the next decade or so. These guys came up with a bunch of cigarette alternatives. But none really took off until two thousand and fifteen when jewel hit the market which was by far their most sophisticated product. I mean it looks like a flash drive. if you've ever seen one it's very sleek and it has these very potent very palatable little nicotine cartridges that you can vaporize into you know a very user friendly little whisper vapor and as it rose in prominence. You probably know. It became very popular with teenagers. Sort of set off this firestorm. In the media it's meant to help. Adult smokers quit but teens are being enticed by the cool factor. Hallway sleeping in classrooms but this morning the company behind that penn is in hot water. The fda has issued a ban on most flavored e cigarettes including fruit candyman at the same time. Parents are launching their own efforts and asking why the government isn't doing more so started out as a project aimed to seemingly reduce. Smoking became something very very different. It seems like a classic villain story of this company out to hook young people and some people argued that that is what happened but at the same time there is pretty compelling data that the e cigarette could potentially help some people stop using cigarettes. So it's a really complicated equation. Where on one hand. Yes absolutely you want to restrict access to these products for teenagers. But at what point does that restriction on access for young people cut into the ability of adults to use these products for their intended purpose to
Amy Bidwell on College Weight Gain
"College weight gain is not just about late night. Eating and lack of physical activity. It is a result of a bigger problem. The lack of strategies to create lasting. Change i've recently implemented a holistic multifaceted behavior. Change program geared at fostering long lasting changes in college students while being research shows that knowledge is not always equate the changes in behavior therefore in addition to teaching the importance of healthy behaviors which provide the students with the why behind maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I began implementing health coaching to support the students in living the how behind making a change an integral part of the behavior. Change process is accountability and resilience to build resilient students set weekly goals to incorporate strategies they learned in the program and then reflect on them in their journals. The students think about what successes and challenges the that week and highlight why they thought those successes and challenges occurred over time. They begin to recognize the habits that result in specific behaviors to foster accountability. I use peer coaches facilitate. Weekly coaching sessions. The coaches use a conversational style approach to ask open ended questions. The use of motivational interviewing helps the students find the intrinsic motivation to make a lasting change past participants have stated how the program has helped them look at the glass half full instead of half empty others have said they feel more resilient when challenges get in their way and are confident that they can overcome new obstacles because earlier successes. An overarching goal of any institution is to graduate. Students who thrive in their personal and professional lives incorporating wellness programs to integrate both knowledge and behavior change strategies encourage students to make lasting changes that improve their overall wellbeing and personal success.

People like Ken Awad and Terrence Wise, we to see what Congress does. Now. We wanted to look back because for most of American history, there was no federal minimum wage at all. That's according to a Laura Dhiren in court. She's an economist at the University of California, Berkeley. Calls for a federal wage floor grew during the Great Depression when Franklin Roosevelt was reshaping the economy with his new deal, and that's where we're going to start this history of the minimum wage at one of FDR's fireside chats back in 1938. Consequently, I am again expressing my hope. That the Congress will enacted this session, a wage and hour bill, putting a floor under industrial wages and a limit on working hours. The motivation for a lot of the legislation during the new deal was to address massive unemployment. And economic hardship to ensure a better distribution of our prosperity. A better distribution of available would And a sound that distribution buying power. So when the minimum wage was first introduced as part of the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938, there was actually a protracted struggle between President Roosevelt and Southern congressmen who were staunchly opposed to the law. What is the argument from Southern Democrats? How explicit are they when it comes to race and What concessions are made to bring them on board Southern politicians who really raised the specter of having to pay ah minimum wage to black domestic workers and private households. And they were very much opposed to this and argued that the southern context was different. It was a lower wage region and a minimum wage would destroy southern industry. So ultimately, the law that came about was the result of a compromise between these forces. So the Depression era ends with a compromise on the minimum wage, in large part to appease Southern Democrats and also to withstand court challenges over what industries the federal government had the power to regulate under the Constitution. Key industries that were actually left out of coverage by the 1938 law were agriculture. Retail and services and the latter are some of the economical minimum wage industries of today, but calls for expanding that minimum wage didn't go away By the sixties. Those calls were taken up by the civil rights movement, and we're a big theme of the march on Washington in 1963. Dhiren in court says that aspect of the march is often for gotten. You know. It was called the march on Washington for jobs and freedom. Yes, we want all public accommodations open. Two all citizens, But those accommodations will mean little to those who cannot afford to use them and a big focus of the key organizers of that March A Philip Randolph and they're addressed in Was actually the economic rights.
