"Just like the civil rights movement. We wanted to make sure that minorities had the same rights as everyone else, that they weren't being targeted or discriminated against. We want to apply that same civil right inside the womb. He draws a parallel between his law and the work of civil rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer, who in the sixties fought for voting rights for black Americans. Is this America? The land of the free and the home of the brain. Alive be threatened daily. Because we want to live if Ethan human beings in American when this bill came up, you talked about Fannie Lou Hamer. Can you walk me through that? Why bring her into the conversation of this bill? Well, because family murder is one of our civil rights activists in Mississippi history, and she actually was the victim of a forced sterilization back in 1961. So what you had back in the sixties were instances where black women when they went to the doctor to receive needful operations or surgeries without being told Many African American women were just paralyzed by the physicians, of course, who were white at the time. And, of course, she spoke out about that, in terms of civil rights, you know that bike women Obviously we would never be treated that way. But African American women in Mississippi were treated that way. What you're talking about with Fannie Lou is really different from abortion. Like what? Happen to Fannie Lou Hamer was horrible. It was a forced sterilization that was done without her consent. What's happening in Mississippi with black women going to get abortions? Is that they are opting to do this surgery that they have. Full agency to make the decision of their bodies. And so it's like two completely different things that you're wrapping into one and I would also say that Fanny is revered because she fought for the right for black people in Mississippi throughout the country to be able to vote. And no. If you think about voting is really about choice. I don't want to put words in to Fannie. Lou Hamer is mouth, but I would say that someone who works as an advocate to give people choice. I find it unlikely that she would be for a bill that was about taking choice away from a black woman. Well, I guess it depends on which black woman you're talking about is that the mother that seeking the abortion is of the black, unborn child that is being aborted. For Michelle. Twisting civil rights history into Joey's law is a part of a wider strategy to broaden the anti abortion movement. So it's inconvenient play because it's never played, But that's like we apologize. Let's have a truth and reckoning. Look at what we did. We are so sorry in what we did to you. It's never that, but instead it is then this rhetoric around abortion, she says. This rhetoric and the laws that inspires have been key in limiting access to abortion. Because the anti abortion movement is one that while we've seen the efforts to do way as a whole, for the most part to play book has been To chip chip chip chip away such that Roe v. Wade doesn't need to be overturned. Instead, there will be the million blows and strikes where the right essentially becomes meaningless for the majority of Americans who don't live in New York or California, or can't get onto a plane to go to Mexico or Canada. Abortion opponents don't just want to chip away at Roe. They hope that is these laws get challenged. One of them will go all the way up to the nation's highest court. So the U. S Supreme Court had a chance to hear a case about this from Indiana. But they let a ruling stand that tossed out the ban on abortion based on race. Do you hope the Supreme Court will have another go with this? I would love that. But we've been arguing for all along There's in the pro life community is that this ought to be a state State decision. We're not claiming that all abortion should be banned out, right? We're just simply saying that the Roe v. Wade put a one size fits all across the whole country, not to be the case. The argument you just made was that this is like, basically states rights, and whenever I hear state's rights, it sets off an alarm bell to me because You know, I mean, at the root of the state right question comes slavery. The idea that, like different states can put different values on different lives, and that with the federal government is supposed to do is maintain a fair balance for everybody. I understand the argument and you're going to continue having that I think until and unless the Supreme Court says, Look back in 1973 we overstepped. This is really an issue better reserved to the state to Maria. Let 50 states determining the territories determined how they want to handle this particular issue of When life begins and to the rights of the mother outweigh the rights of the unborn or vice versa. And it's a very sticky issue, and I certainly don't envy the judges or justices that will be hearing these cases. That's state. Senator Joey filling gain from Mississippi Way also spoke with U C. Irvine law professor Michele Goodwin. Our story was produced by the roly price. This idea of whose rights matter more. The mothers or the fetuses isn't just about abortion, and as courts weigh in on it, there could be big consequences for pregnant people. So we have cases of women.

The unstoppable Fannie Lou Hamer
"She walked with a limp. She had a blood clot behind her eye from being severely beaten in Mississippi jail. Her name was was Fannie Lou Hamer. She was the youngest of twenty children born to black sharecroppers in Mississippi and in late nineteen sixty four for president Lyndon B Johnson was absolutely terrified of her why she was about to make make an appeal before the credentials panel at the Democratic National Convention. The potential implications were profound. Hamer represented the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party a racially integrated coalition of delegates Hamer wanted to challenge the seats of the current aren't all white democratic delegation from their state saying that they were in violation of the party's rules because they had systematically excluded excluded black citizens according to Time magazine. Johnson was worried that Hamer speech could offend the Southern Democrats whose votes he needed for reelection he wanted her silenced but Hamer had a following that rivaled that of Dr Martin Luther Author King Junior and she would not go unheard. Hamer was born in one thousand nine hundred seventeen in the Mississippi Delta. The share cropping system kept her parents in debt and without enough food to feed their twenty children in the Winter Hebrew tied rags on her feet because she often didn't have shoes. She started picking cotton when she was six years old. Aw Hamer started her civil rights work in nineteen sixty one after she was sterilized without consent during what it should have been a minor surgery she tried to register to vote in one thousand nine hundred sixty two but was turned away after she failed illiteracy literacy tests which were used in the south to discourage black people from voting the clerk asked Hamer complicated questions like interpreting the state constitution after she failed the test. She told the clerk she'd be back when Hamer returned to the plantation in that day. She was fired from her job but she wasn't defeated. Hamer became a student nonviolent. Coordinating Committee a community organizer and helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party in reaction to the lack of integration in the state's Democratic Party party as a candidate from the party. She ran for Congress in nineteen sixty four against democratic incumbent Jamie L whitten at that year's Democratic Democrat National Convention. Hey made her way to the stage through a crowd of men who refused to make space for her other members of the civil rights movement including Martin Luther King Junior spoke but all eyes were on her. She then talked for thirteen minutes Mr Chairman and to could dentures committee. My name is Mrs Fannie Lou Hamer. She called for mandatory delegation an integration and recounted her experience trying to register to vote. It was the thirty first of all the night being the eighteen of US travel. Put the six miles the county courthouse in in the normal tried to register to become first. I player Hamer describes being arrested in beaten in Mississippi jail after white waitress at a rest. Stop refused her service. That's how she got the blood clot. All of this is own account. We won't be registered to become first-class. NFL Freedom Democratic Party is not beating not after her testimony humor and other other Freedom Party members discovered that Johnson a wildly tough politician had held a news conference so that national television networks could he cover her testimony live. She was livid but Johnson's efforts to silencer didn't work that that night in a hot Atlantic City Hotel Room Hamer and the rest of the country watched her testimony broadcast in prime time on the evening news news less than a year later. Congress passed the Voting Rights Act and at the nineteen sixty eight convention in Chicago. He became team the first African American to be seated as a delegate. She received a standing ovation.
What Determines How Others See You
"Let's set aside some curiosity. It's not just how we look how we act that determines how people see us. So what does determine what people think of us researchers might have some hunches based on some ongoing studies? And one of those researchers is Vivian Sayas vigil rector of the personality, attachments and control laboratory at Cornell University, she's back for another edition of our mentality Mondays miniseries, with some insights in how researchers study first impressions, but more than that, she has some surprising information about exactly how subjectively people really see each other, what she told us might surprise you. You know, a lot of the work on. I and Prussians tends to focus on some people are for example, more attractive than other people or some people are just more like than other people are some people more trustworthy than other. That's what's called a target effect. Right. And the suction is, if we are given ten people were asked evaluate those ten people, the three of us are going to generally agree. That's the suction, and there is some consistency in our evaluations some, but it doesn't explain all of it, actually, and actually, if you can break down, how much is due to the target versus there's another source of what influences whether we like someone or not. And that's what's called a perceiver effect. So some people might think that everybody's attractive, or everybody's trustworthy. Right. So that would be a perceiver effect. And then there's what's called the interaction between the, the person that you're viewing the target and yourself, we can call this, like chemistry. I might. At like person, a more than person b and Ashley, you might like person be more than personal personnel. And what we know from some of the work is that in terms of first impressions of like who do you like what we're seeing is that twenty percent of the judgment is based on. We tend to agree that some people are more likeable than other people. Forty percent is a person effect. Some people are just like everybody and some people don't and then forty percent is sort of idiosyncratic. We have preferences, and our preferences aren't all the same and that accounts for forty percent of the variability. We'll say that one more time just so it sinks him in terms of first impressions about twenty percent of the time, we tend to agree that some people are just more likable than other people. Forty percents is a person effect as in some people just like everybody and others don't and the final forty percent is personal preference. That's a lot of percents. And to me. That is really interesting and also important, because I feel like we tend to simplify things again. Right. And I think we tend to think that just some people are more attractive. Some people more likable. Some people have it, and some people don't and that there's a little bit of truth to that. There are people who are more attractive in some people, we tend to agree somewhat but there's a lot of idiosyncrasy a lot of preferences. And we see preferences in almost every aspect of our lives. We don't all want to live in the same cities. We don't all want to live in the same communities. We don't all want to live in the same type of house. We don't all want to wear the same types of clothes. We don't all the same type of restaurant even if we go to the same restaurant, we don't all eat the same type of food. There are preferences. And so why wouldn't we have these preferences, when it comes to who we find attractive in who we want to hang out with, and who do we to be friends with? But it's a little bit complicated. It's harder to get a grasp of these interactions. And so. So we tend to focus on target effects, and I think there's some importance to target effects, but I think it doesn't present the whole picture and to me, find it really interesting that there is so much idiosyncrasy so much that when we're meeting someone, and we're making a decision, for example, do I want to be friends with this person? A person's saying, does everybody necessarily want to be friends with. I'm saying do I want to be friends with this person? Am I attracted to this person and there's a lot of personal preference in that? So that's one part of the first impressions work, one finding there that I'm really interested in. So would you say then that probably everybody is attractive and likable to somebody? I have not yet looked at that would I might expect is that yes, there's going to be, maybe I am hesitant say everybody. But the majority of people are going to be attracted to the majority of other people, I might also expect that so. Some people will draw more people to. And so I, I do think that there is some complexity to these analyses that we haven't done yet. Here's one takeaway from this research. Maybe don't worry so much about whether you're broadly likable, to other people all the time, and instead, just do your best to make a good first impression on the next person you meet. There's probably not a person out there who everyone likes, although to be fair. Patrick Stewart comes pretty darn close. Anyway, that was Vivian Sayas. The director of the personality attachment and control laboratory at Cornell University. You can hear her and lots of other interesting people on Cornell university's podcast series called, what makes us human it just backed up its fourth season, and their episodes are really interesting not to mention even shorter than ours. You can find links to that podcast and more in today's show notes, and you'll hear from professor science again next week one way to get someone to like you a whole lot more is by giving a gift from. Today's sponsor paints your life. That believe I know somebody that recently did this. I did. I got a portrait of my great grandmother, great, grandfather, and grandmother, as a baby turned into a painting for my mom for mother's day. And so when I called my mom on mother's day, and she had just opened her present. It was like she didn't even answer. The phone really is like the phone turned on. And then it was just her talking to my brother about how amazing it looked and comparing, you know, his facial features to like my great grandfather's facial features. And I was like, mom. She was so delighted and I just can't wait to go home for the holidays and see it up on her wall. That's super cool. And that's mean you can pretty have much an original the whole idea, painting right? of I yourself, your children family, a special place or cherished pet all at a price you can afford, by the way, from painter life dot com, and it's a true painting done by hand by a world class artists that has created from a favorite photo.

Message and data rates may apply. According to research you can. In fact, ask for too much advice. Sure you can help your career by asking your experienced co workers for advice on the job. But you may wanna think twice before you ask multiple colleagues about something in the same way. You'd read a bunch of yelp reviews before you buy something online. Here's why when you ask someone for advice, you're creating a vulnerable interpersonal interaction and you're asking that person to spend time offering their thoughts in return your advisor might expect a level of control over the outcome. In other words, they might want to tell you what to do, even when you were just hoping to tap into the wisdom of the crowd by talking to a lot of people without ceding control to anyone when the advice giver, and receiver have mismatched expectations like this relationships can sour. So asking for advice is actually a risky endeavor getting multiple perspectives. Is even more risky, for example, for one study, researchers surveyed two hundred people who are asked. To recall a time when they gave advice. The researchers found the participants felt flattered when they were asked for advice, but they also felt less close to the person receiving the advice afterward. If their advice was ignored similarly, when compared to people who are asked exclusively for advice, people who are just one of many Astra advice were more likely to feel offended, and less likely to continue their professional relationship with the person seeking that advice to the researchers these two problems are clearly related asking multiple people for advice makes you less likely to take any one person's advice, which means you're advisor has less control and a higher chance of being ignored. So, yes. Crowds can be wise, but they can also be controlling even downright domineering, if you value your relationship with your advisers, only ask for their advice when you really think, might take it read about today's stories and more on curiosity dot com.

The Psychology of Circles
"You can play along at home with our first story just draw a circle simple as that grab a piece of paper and something to write with and get to it this might sound weird. But you can actually learn quite a bit about someone's background from the way they draw circle. There's actual data and science behind this. So don't worry. We're not just talking about some pseudoscience handwriting analysis kind of thing. Okay. Did you draw your circle? Well, here are a couple of fun facts. If you're American there's an eighty six percent chance that you draw your circles counterclockwise. But for people living in Japan eighty percent of people draw their circles in the opposite direction. This data comes from November twenty sixteen when Google released in AI game called quick draw. It was kind of like the game pictionary you'd start to draw something and then Google's algorithm would try. Guess what you were drawing in twenty seconds or less courts. Use data from the game to look at one hundred nineteen thousand unique circles to see how different people draw them. They found that the direction that you dry. Your circle is quote linked to geography and cultural upbringing deep-rooted and hundreds of years of written language in significant in developmental psychology. And trends in education today, unquote, the clockwise and counterclockwise patterns, probably come down to language Japanese and Chinese writing follows a strict stroke order with characters drawn from the top left in the direction of the bottom. Right. A nineteen eighty-five study showed that most people living in China druthers circles clockwise, possibly because of the clockwise strokes in semi cursive, Chinese calligraphy stroke order is so important in these countries, it can even signal your level of education on the flip side Americans are taught to draw shapes counterclockwise to prep their motor movements for what's called magic see letter formation as in the curve in the letters C G Q and oh test this out on your friends. And see what happens weirdly, my initials are c g and I just drew a circle, and I started at the bottom and did it clockwise. That's so weird. I know. Well, I I can't do it now because I'm too aware. I hope everyone knew drew a circle drew a circle before. I started talking if you dislike being cold as much as we do. Then you come to the right podcast because we have some tips from the world of physiology to help you understand how your body stays warm in the wintertime, or you know, whenever it's cold as reported by exercise physiologist, John Eric Smith for the conversation. Your blood does a lot of things while it's coursing through your body. It's carrying nutrients and oxygen and other important stuff. And it also brings heat produced in your muscles to your skin where it gets released when it gets cold around you your body moves blood to your torso to keep your vital organs warm at the same time. Your body sends less blood flow to your skin that means less heat makes it to your skin. Celeste heat gets lost here environment. This helps you hang on to your internal heat longer. You know, how you shiver and your teeth chatter when you get really cold that's because bodies cranking up your muscle activity to help you stay warm that movement actually helps you break down more nutrients to crank. Up your internal heat. People lose heat at different rates, depending on their body size body fat and metabolic activity to smaller people with less body, fat lose more heat than larger people with more body. Fat more muscle. Mass means more heat gets produced and more body fat works as an insulator. So there's less heat loss. So let's get into how you can stay warm, obviously, warm clothing as helpful like, a hat and coat and gloves. But believe it or not it's a myth that most of your heat escapes through your head. Remember how I said your blood rushes to your torso to keep in vital organs worm? Well, that's why a coat will do you a lot more good than hat. If you had to pick one of the other, you'll keep your limbs warmer. If you keep your torso warm since that'll help, you keep a steady blood flow something else, they can help you. Stay warm is being physically active doing jumping jacks or running around makes your muscles contract, which breaks down more nutrients, which dinner is extra heat, but layers of clothing and physical activity can tip the balance past what you need to offset heat loss. If that happens. Get an increase in body temperature. And your body will start sweating to try to cool down, and that's bad. Because then you'll deal with more heat laws when your sweat evaporates one more thing that can help you stay warm though, eating your body. Temperature will go up when your body is busy breaking down food. That's why if you go camping you may want to have a snack before bed. So you stay warmer while you sleep hope that helps us they warm this winter or next winter if it's warm wherever you are right now, we'll wrap up today with a trick to keep you from choking under pressure choking is the thing. Researchers have actually studied for years they've found that we perform better the more. We have to gain. But only up to a certain point when we have too much to gain. We tend to mess up. Even if we're doing something we do every day. In other words, we choke. You might get sweaty palms or even feel nauseous, but choking is mostly a mental affliction the potential reward or loss of reward distracts you from the task at hand and your performance level drops choking shows up on brain scans as heightened activity in the ventral. Stratum that's the part of your brain where you analyze risk and reward. So November twenty eighteen a team of researchers from the California Institute of technology published a study on how to change your thinking to stop from choking. They gave participants hand eye coordination tests, which came with rewards ranging from zero to a hundred dollars for successfully completing the challenge in some cases, researchers asked participants to reimagined their situation or use what's called cognitive reappraisal strategy. The reward structure didn't change, but they were told to imagine the reward amount in cash already sitting in their pocket as they perform the task, basically, they imagined they already had that reward and participants choked substantially less when they used this reappraisal trick than when they thought of themselves as striving for a prize MRI scans also showed that reappraisal reduced the amount of activity in that risk and reward focused ventral stratum. It's not a perfect fix reappraisal didn't prevent all choking. But for an easy purely mental shift. It was a surprisingly. Effective antidote. So the next time you're trying for a major reward whether it's the World Series or a lifetime supply of chicken nuggets. Just imagine. It's already yours. You're not trying to prove you deserve. Something new. You're just confirming you deserve. What you have in the first place. This ad free. Episode was brought to you by our patrons special. Thanks to Bob.

Is there a difference between weather and climate?
"Do you know the difference between the terms weather and climate? It's an important distinction. If you follow science news, and we've gotten a lot of questions about it lately. So today, I've got you covered as reported by the conversation weather, basically refers to stuff happening, right? This second like cloud, cover and temperature. You know, the day to day conditions of the atmosphere. Climate is a more macro view. It describes the average atmospheric conditions over many years. In fact, the World Meteorological Organization says that figuring out a climate record. Takes a minimum of thirty years of data. This includes things like average annual rainfall overall direction of the wind or what time of year, you're most likely to see snow. Here's. An analogy that might help. It comes from Jennifer Fitchet, who's a senior lecturer in physical geography at the university of the Witwatersand. The climate is like your wardrobe. You got a winter coat and scarf, or when it's cold flip flops in shorts for when it's warm and everything in between whether is the individual item of clothing you choose to wear you change what you wear from day to day. If it snowing you put on boots, and if it's really hot you might wear sandals. The thing is everyone in the world doesn't have the same wardrobe. If you live right on the equator, then you probably don't have a winter coat, and that brings us back to weather and climate the conditions in one place are different from the conditions far away from wherever you are. Here's what that means for how we can understand climate projections and climate forecasts the weather forecast, you see on TV or on your phones weather app is there to help you figure out what to wear on the other hand climate projections. Tell you what scientists think the climate will be in forty fifty maybe a hundred years climate projections are a war. Warning that we might want to change up our wardrobe. Maybe we won't need such heavy coats. And maybe it's a good time to pick up some shorts or umbrellas or raincoats. There's no need to switch up your whole wardrobe overnight. Just take your time look ahead and plan and adapt and hopefully stay dry a sect is a real astronomical unit of measurement with cool origins. Yes. It measures distance not time. Yes. The term was used improperly in the original Star Wars. Yes. I will. Absolutely get to that in a few minutes. No, Ashley, you're not getting out of this one. I love Star Wars that I'm cost played Star Wars character. This is true. Well, we're all gonna love stores by the end of this. Here's the deal. One person is a quivalent to three points to six late years. That's nineteen trillion miles or thirty one trillion kilometers, if that seems excessive that's because it absolutely is. But when it comes to measuring astronomically large distances between. Objects that are beyond our solar system. Excessively large is just right. I said beyond our solar system, by the way for you to travel one parcel from earth. You would have to go from here to the sun and back two hundred six thousand two hundred sixty five times, I told you it was big the word purse that comes from two words Pera lax and our second para lacks describes when an object's location seems to have changed because your location changed. Astronomers use para lax to judge the distance of object in the sky, if you know, how far the earth has moved and you can measure how far the object moved across its starry backdrop you can judge distance. You actually use parallel to judge the distance of things all the time. You're too is see the world from slightly different angles, and your brain crunches, the numbers to tell you how far away everything is from you. The second half of Parsi refers to an arc second in arc. Second is part of a measurement of an angle. You know, how a circle is three hundred sixty degrees. Imaginer standing with a full view of the horizon around you if you sliced the horizon into three hundred sixty degrees each degree would be about twice the width of the full moon divide one of those degrees into sixty pieces, and you get the width of an arc minute divide. One of those up by sixty again, and you get an arc second. Putting it all together. A par sec is the Pera lacks of one arc second. In other words, if an object in the sky moves by one arc second when the earth moves by one astronomical unit. Then the object is one par cycle way to put that in perspective. Proxima centauri is the star. That's our closest neighbor, and it's one point three par away for more perspective the millennium falcon made the kessel run in twelve par sex, and I'm sorry pedants. But before you go criticizing stores for this, quote, unquote mistake, I you need to understand what the kessel run actually is you'll feed skip forward thirty seconds or so if you can't handle my nerdiness in Star Wars, Ken. In the kessel run is a route used by smugglers to transport in illicit substance from minds on the planet kessel through a region of space that belongs to the galactic empire. So it's an illegal smuggling route. And this route includes a cluster of black holes known as the Ma as you know, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. So when Hans solo said he made the kessel run in twelve par sex. He was referring to his daring knish and piloting skills and the sophisticated computer on the money on falcon that he was able to use to navigate close to those black holes while not getting sucked in I was aware of this reading books from the Star Wars expanded universe. And I was a kid, but thanks to Disney. They are no longer canon. But they also address this in the twentieth. Eighteen films solo Star Wars story, which I still have not seen. But they address all of this after the movie happened. Does doesn't matter doesn't make just made it up afterward to make that line? Okay. To work. No, still works. That is art. That's how you craft a story. I think this is the biggest debate we've ever had in this. The kessel run. Obviously makes Cody happy, you know, who else is happy by most metrics Scandinavians, the annual world happiness report consistently rates the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland among the top ten happiest nations. So today, we'll wrap up with some life philosophies from Nordic countries that might make you a little happier in your own life. I is hugging. The Danish concept of Hooda translates to something like coziness of the soul. It's the feeling you get when you're snuggled up under a blanket with a loved one drinking cocoa by the fire as a life philosophy. It's all about allowing yourself guilt free indulgences, especially when the world is dark and dreary anything from getting together with family and friends for a meal to spending time on your own reading a good book like from the Star Wars expanded universe to sand. The next philosophy is Logam logo is a Swedish word that roughly translates to just right or optimal. You probably heard the saying everything in moderation, including moderation. That's what logo is all about. Whether that's how much sugared add to a batch of cookies or how much of your life. You devote to your work. This philosophy urges a healthy balance. That doesn't swing too far in any direction and one other philosophy is see sue. It's a unique finish concept. That's about persisting through challenges until you reach the end the term roughly translates into English as a strength of will, determination perseverance and acting rationally in the face of adversity. It's not about courage in the moment. But the kind of courage that has to last over time after inspiration has sputtered out. And the real challenge has shown itself, you can read about these and other philosophies in our full right up on curiosity dot com and on our free curiosity app for Android an I o s but none of these pique your interest.

What is folie deux
"You live with someone. It's common for a bug like a cold or flu to spread from one person to another, but mental illness believe it or not it's possible. Here's the scoop on the phenomenon it's technically called shared psychotic disorder. But is most famously known as fully ado, the first case of the condition was documented in the nineteenth century with a thirty something married. Couple named Margaret and Michael they shared a delusion that people were sneaking into their house at night spreading dust, dropping pieces of fluff and wearing down the souls of the couples shoes shared psychotic disorder. Most often affects people in very close relationships like married couples siblings, and parents and children. They're also usually socially isolated and a lot of the time. They have a pre existing mental illness. The condition has lots of different forms, but the most common and oldest known one is called fully impose AI or imposed madness. In that form, the more dominating person in the pair spreads his or her delusion to the more submissive person. And that person doesn't resist the ideas another version is called fully stimul- tahnee or simultaneous madness. That's where two people with deep connection both experienced the delusion at once luckily in most of these forms. The cure is simple just separate the two people when that doesn't work psychiatrists can resort to medication or electro convulsive therapy. But you know, what? We all tend to share mental eccentricities with others. And that's not always a bad thing as Esther Inglis Arkell of I o nine puts it quote. There are few old married couples who don't share eccentricities there are few families or even close friendships that don't require both people to work with various mental glitches of the other. We all go a little crazy for the other people in our lives unquote, commune just give Ashley round of applause for nailing. All this French pronunciations.

Incredible Benefits of Leaving Your Phone Out of Your Bedroom, Stopping Time
"Today. You learn about what would happen if you could actually stop time, scientifically speaking, the incredible benefits of leaving your phone out of your bedroom and one of our favorite scientific discoveries of the year, a new world beyond Pluto. Let's discover some curiosity, you know, how some superheroes and super villains can stop time. Well, it turns out the real world effects of stopping time wouldn't be very practical. But there are pretty fun way. To learn about physics say I loved this article. Yeah. Me too. I loved writing it. I'm really big into time stopping because I played a lot of mega man to and I was little flash man is iconic. Really good music too. Yeah. Actually, you helps me with this article. 'cause I was like what's an example of a time where you stop time, and you're like mega man, I remember and then time stopped, and I thought to myself now is my chance. Anyway, good before we get into this. Let's define what we mean. By stopping time. We're talking about when you stop time for everything, but you of TV shows or movies where everything's frozen and a character walks around moving stuff, Adam Sandler and click Keanu Reeves in the matrix stuff. Like that will for the Stephen work you need to account for every molecule of fluid and air inside and outside of your body. If you're able to move around then we have to assume the molecules inside you can move around too. And if the air and the rest of the room stopped experiencing time, then every molecule would stay suspended precisely in the same location. So you wouldn't be able to move because you'd be trapped in a prison of air molecules. So let's say the time keeps flowing normally for the molecules near your body and beyond that time standstill. All right. Well, there's still a problem as you listen to this particles of light called photons are traveling at the speed of well, light, obviously into your eyes. You're also hearing this podcast at the speed of sound through. The air as pressure waves that eventually get your ears to vibrate. Your eardrums these stop time than all light and sound would stop to which might leave you instantly deaf and blind. Not super helpful, right? Okay. Let's say that any photons said it already been omitted from a source like a lightbulb your cell phone or the sun. Let's say that those photons got to keep traveling. Okay. Well, then you've got anywhere from a fraction of a second to a full eight minutes where you could still see, but we want unlimited time. So let's not stop it completely instead of stopping it. What if you slowed it to a crawl well that wouldn't work either? When he slowed down electromagnetic waves for light and pressure waves for sound you get waves of a lower frequency, but at a low frequency you'd hear sounds that dropped below the range of human hearing and light at a lower frequency moves into the infrared microwave and radio waves realm. So you wouldn't be able to see that either. In the end, maybe the ability to stop time is one of those superpowers in the. The be careful what you wish for category like reading thoughts and turning everything you touch into gold still who said science fiction can't help us. Learn about science today. Curiosity wrote about a new study, and we've got some really bad news. If you're a dicta- dear phone, oh, no participants in this study, you kept their smartphones out of the bedroom for one week showed a marks improvement in their happiness and overall quality of life. Wow. I'm not done. The also showed fewer signs of smartphone addiction, plus many of the participants reported that they slept better experienced less anxiety and improve their relationships more than ninety percent of the participants. Who did this said they might keep it up? I can't imagine being a person that would say they'd keep it up because I can't imagine being in person that would even do that. Okay. So I do have a suggestion for breaking the habit. Okay. And I learned in college that when you change a habit you have to replace it with something. Right. So you can't just stop doing a thing without replacing it with. Sure, obviously, you can swap out your phone for a book. It turns out that when you sleep after you learn something new you're able to remember it better later anyway. So if you're reading nonfiction book or a philosophy book, then you're gonna process that more, which is really cool. Here's another life hack on a more personal level my wife realizes the I'm really into gadgets. So like, I like Nintendo switch, and I like, my gaming PC's, and I just like techy stuff. So she got me an e reader she got me a kindle now. I've got a gadget I can bring the bed. Right. But at the same time also reading a book, so it's kind of like cheating. So if you at home are sleeping with someone. Who's tech obsessed like me, then get them in ear, and it'll even let you read in the dark, depending on the model like if it's got a back light, just don't use a tablet anything that emits blue light will actually disturb your sleep rights or there's a couple of suggestions. Do you have any reader? I don't you know, I've been wanting to read more books, and I use my phone too much. It seems like a simple fix all do it. I'm saying it right now on the podcast. I'm going to leave my phone out of my room when I sleep for the next week. I will check back in a week or two. All right. Today's episode is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Everyone knows about the risks of driving drunk. You get in a crash people would get hurt or killed. But let's take a moment to look at some surprising statistics almost twenty nine people in the United States die every day in alcohol, impaired vehicle crashes. That's one person every fifty minutes. Even though drunk driving fatalities have fallen by a third in the last three decades drunk driving crashes still claim more than ten thousand lives each year drunk driving can have a big impact on your wallet to you could get arrested and encourage huge legal expenses. For example, you could possibly even lose your job. So what can you do to prevent drunk driving plant a safe ride home before you start drinking designate, a sober driver or call a taxi if someone you know has been drinking take their keys at arranged for them to get sober ride home. We all know the consequences of driving drunk, but one thing is for sure you're wrong. If you think it's no big deal. Drive sober or get pulled over. Astronomers have just discovered a new planet beyond Pluto, really not burying the lead hero we. Nope. This discovery hasn't been published in a peer reviewed journal yet. But the astronaut journal is considering the paper submission that talks about this discovery. And we found this planet by accident when we're looking for a different planet. So let's back up in two thousand sixteen. Astronomers got the idea that there might be a planet about as big as Neptune somewhere far away in our solar system. They call this world planet nine and astronomers all over have been looking for it. Nobody's found it yet. But it's probably worth remembering that spaces, you know, kind of big. So it might take years and years of searching before we confirm that planet nine exists. And in the meantime, we've found another tiny world out there. It's officially called twenty fifteen t g three eight seven, but astronomers took the T G part and ran with it. So they gave it the nickname. The goblin. The goblin is a dwarf planet that orbits the sun eighty times further away than earth one trip around the sun on the goblin would take about forty thousand years that's one long year. I mean, the last time the goblin was where it is now in its pather on the sun, we hadn't even invented civilization, let alone telescopes or spacecraft, but check this out even though we didn't find planet nine the goblin might tell us a lot about our solar system a straw. Owners ransom simulations of the goblin while assuming a planet the size of Neptune or a super earth was also out there long story short. It looks like if planet nine did exist than it actually shepherded the goblin along its orbit, in fact, planet nines gravitational influence might keep a bunch of distant worlds far away from it. Would you avoid the chance of a nasty collision? And here's another cool thing. There are other dwarf planets in the zone where we found the goblin these little worlds all travel in their own zone far away from the main massive our solar system where you find the eight planets closest to the sun that you know, in love taken together at the orbits of these dwarf worlds. Could be a powerful argument that planet nine is a real thing. Now, again, the planet's discovery is still waiting for peer review, but it could have big implications. And it's a good reminder that space is pretty big.
