The Impact of Australian High Performance Computing in the Coming decade
"Joining us in the podcast. Today we have professor shawn smith that director of national computational infrastructure and see i and he's also a professor or computation of nanno matera science and technology at australian national university. Professor smith is also a fellow of the royal australian chemical institute a fellow american is association for the advancement of science a fellow of the institute of chemical engineers and he will be sharing with us the highlights of high performance computing at nci. Thank you professor for joining us in the podcast. Today i thought we kick off by taking a look at the evolution and development in australia. Research backed by high performance computing and data infrastructure which plays a pivotal role in national research. But also have wide ranging economic and social impacts. I'm so for example as you pointed out in your presentation at supercomputing asia Looking at the year two thousand twenty the events challenging for many with the pandemic but particularly so for australia with the bushfire which i thought i very salient. Examples of where policymakers and help provide as neat fayza reliable information to get a sense of what is yet to come to better manage the situation but beyond these examples is also cancer research. Physics et cetera. So for our listeners. Can you tell us more about you know audi australia. Research are backed. By high performance. Computing infrastructure have evolved over the decades. You certainly are one constructive way to approach that question. Jain may be. If if i summarize the way in which australia to tijuana one phones compute facilities have evolved over the past decade which gives a flavor of how that the sick to hebron australia has developed in the major demise signs that have been really key in driving it forwards so we have to tier one facilities in australia One is the australian at the australian national university campus. Here in canberra the other one is the posey supercomputing center in person west australia. So both of these centers were set up in their initial in the current model as it were nearly a decade ago and when nci was stood up in its current form. The australian national university has long long history of computing. But the carrots. Nci was put in place around about twenty eleven two thousand twelve and we build a new data center on campus and put in the previous supercomputing facility which was called ryan now when i was set up with financial input from the federal government. They then we're really looking for a degree of leverage of their investment And so the federal contributions to were helped to facilitate the standing up of the big facility and the big shane And the new data center per se and they contribute a certain amount of our national expenses. But i asked us dan to negotiate the larger part of operating expenses. With am i just stike holders. And in the case of nci. This was done by substantial collaboration with four major organizations. I was the australian national university. Which is our organizational host. It was the csi. Giovanni australia and the bureau of meteorology so the one university into three big government agencies collaborated in a way that allowed to build out and develop and the common thread across those three. Big agencies was really climate weather simulation and geospatial science earth sciences and so for example the the great majority of large-scale climate modeling research is done at nci. And it's done. In collaboration between the bureau of meteorology the csi and the university sector which has some substantial activity also in that mind so nci became if you will the collaborative sandpit that these organizations could actually work together on very large common data sets in degenerate very large data. It's through the simulation work and the the other component of that was with geoscience australia. They are the secretaries for the international agreements which bring labs scout satellite imaging data four alpine out of the globe down to australia and nci was tasked to work with Jason social strata. To figure out how to host is enormous data sets and make them there in available findable so forth and accessible and utilize -able
Meditation and Beyond with MindFlow App Founder Fabio Mattiussi
"Today. I'm interviewing fabio matuzici fabulous. Are you in mindfulness today. Absolutely thank you for having me. Yeah it's a great pleasure to have you here. And i just wanna share a little bit about you with mindful tribe and that is that not only. Are you the founder of the mind flow app. Which is the first adapt of meditative app. Well helped you started. Your career is a computer hacker which is very fascinating to me and you've always been passionate about the human mind obsessed with understanding. Why people do what they do. And as a result of that fascination you studied neuroscience neuro linguistic programming and even if they're happy which. I'm very interested in as well. And you've practiced on these things with hundreds of in your your global journey. And you're now a coach and creator of meditation courses and you use sophisticated yet easy to follow practices. Which are based on all of this. Is you have so so exciting to have you on the show fabio. Mindfulness mean to you. Well as you said. The computer engineering me has to answer with the definition by book that is focusing your awareness on the present moment but the therapies to me though that he's more used to work with wards has to focus also mind and fullness which in a way the way it is to fully use your mind potential. So how do you use that state of mind being so focused on the now to open your capabilities for everything. They are doing Whether it is in in sports or in business or more in general for your personal improvement. And that's what. I really like to see in mindfulness. See it as a tool for achieving what you want to achieve february. I have so many questions. I want to ask you but the thing i want to say right away is that i downloaded your app. Mind flow and turned it on and and check out a few things in the first thing that struck me was how incredibly awesome. You sound on that app. Your voice your accent. I just like. I just was absolutely sold as soon as i started listening. Because you have such an incredible way as a meditative. Your voice and accent. It just is perfect for that. How long have you been doing guided meditations to help others the way you do on this app. Well thank you very much first of all. It's a it's been a few years and it's interesting how it started that. I didn't quite do it to be meditation for a lot of people. It was just because my my family's back in europe. And i'm here in the us and so once. It was back in europe. After a course that i've done on an lp and hebron therapy and other things in that room and Obviously wanted to experiment new techniques that i've learned and my mom offered to be volunteer and so i did it a little bit with her and she was incredibly receptive to bat so she was a whole new experience for her and i was so excited to to hear her saying that she could swear that she was swimming and she would feel their the hands. Where moving and obviously she was not doing any of that because that was just in her mind and and so i wanted to create some experience for her because when you go by comb. There's a lot of people that you need to see. Obviously and the time is limited. So i couldn't quite do all the things that i wanted to have her experience and so when he came back here to the us. What i thought was well. I should just record it and then send it to her and then i thought the easiest ways just to put it in this app. She says need to download and click on without having a lot of loggins and things and And so i did and so she really liked. It was talion at the time. That was the first track. I created and she was happy to hear my voice. And you know. It's it's great to connecting as many ways as possible when families not near and so the some point. They saw that a lot of comments came in on that track and they even had people that were that. Were sending the were sending donations to me. And i thought this is incredible so i thought that if somebody is donating to me for for this it has to have some value and it. Three has to mean something for them. Because i certainly didn't ask for any of that. And so that's where i started to think. Maybe it can really make a difference in these and they started to create some more
Biden announces all-female White House communications team
"The newly minted. Staffers named to the white house office of digital strategy included number of longtime democratic operatives. Many of whom worked for biden's presidential campaign. The group will be asked not only to recreate the digital operation that helped defeat donald but to build out an operation that follows a president who wielded more social media power than any of his predecessors which is what he's done unfortunately so rob flaherty who worked as the digital director of the biden campaign. He's gonna assume. The role of director of digital strategy white house. Jaime lopez will work as director platforms and brandon cohen who previously served as the deputy director of editorial on the biden campaign. He's going to serve as a platform manager of the digital operation. So they're going to be joined by. Jonathan hebron as video director and chronic would as the creative director both of whom held similar roles on the biden campaign as he was running. Biden's digital team is expected to focus on many of the same tactics and help the former vice president's campaign working directly with digital content creators and influencers to expand the administration's reach this builds on work. That was done in the final years of the obama administration where the president would routinely appear on platforms outside the normal venues for the commander in chief. And i think we're learning through like amc and a lot of people that like tiktok and those streaming things are going to be a good way to reach the younger generation. So there's a host of other digital operatives that are going to fill out this office of digital strategy. We got visors designer livia raizner as traveling content director without rebecca rank vic and christian tom as the deputy directors of digital strategy and cameron trimble as the director of digital engagement. All worked on biden's campaign and biden said today after being briefed on foreign policy that he's facing considerable roadblocks to transition especially from trump allies in the pentagon and the office of management and budget. So i honestly. I don't think joe biden is going to be silent about these issues. He's clearly frustrated with the interference from outgoing loser. And i think he's gonna start beginning more vocal about it. Yeah this is kind of an interesting signal right. Because everyone's like oh he's gonna be for unity and he's just going to ignore all that stuff and be super kind but he was kind of pissed today in his public remarks. He's like yeah. I'm facing roadblocks in the middle of a deadly pandemic from the assholes at the pentagon

"Welcome to kiss myths and Mystery Syam, your host Kit crump today, the Bohemian Grove and a little bit about secret societies. Perhaps, you belong to a club some time in your life maybe the girl Scouts or cub scouts I was a cub scout many clubs have rules and regulations that go no further than the halls were the members gather like the elks however organizations like the PTA Parent Teacher Association can affect schools, school districts therefore students the reach and impact of. These organizations are limited and generally they're intent is not secret records of meetings of the scouts, elks in the PTA and many other clubs are available to the public. But there are many secret societies out there Yale's skull and bones founded in eighteen thirty two and has had both bushes Teddy Roosevelt and his cousin Franklin as members but a complete list of members is difficult to acquire and the intent of the club impossible to know Dan there is the barbarian aluminum. An lighten era secret society founded may first seventeen seventy, six. The BILDERBERG group is so secret that is considered by many to be a shadow world most secret societies, clubs and organizations so far flung with headquarters in different cities around the world. But the Bohemian Grove is located on two thousand, seven hundred privately owned acres located in Monte Rio California and established eighteen seventy two security at the grove is year round ex-military hired to keep out the curious high end equipment including thermal night vision cameras, and motion detectors are used. As. Part of the sophisticated detection and alarm system, they have ceremonies with strange names like the yearly cremation of care ceremony. It was revealed by a California judge during a discrimination suit brought against that grow by the California Department of Fair Employment and housing over the club's refusal to hire women when the judge that issued decision in favor of the club's practice of not hiring women stated the club members urinated in the open and that hiring women would alter the members behavior odd ceremonies and members strange conduct aside members like those. Of Yale are rich and powerful pictures of President Reagan and Nixon indicate they were members. Also, the Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project Planning Meeting this took place there in September of Nineteen, forty two, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb those attending this meeting include Ernest, Lawrence j Robert, Altman Heimer, the s one executive committee heads such as presidents of Harvard Yale and Princeton along with representatives of standard, oil general, electric as well as various military officials. All members at the time oppenheimer was not an s one member. Although Lawrence, an open heimer hosted the meetings grow members take particular pride in this of and often relate the story to new attendees. However, other behavior at this famous campground has led to numerous claims and even some parody in popular culture. One such documented example was former president Richard Nixon's comments on May Thirteenth Nineteen seventy-one recording the Bohemian Grove which I attended from time to time. It is the most Fag God damn thing you could ever imagine now that's a quote from Richard, Nixon was recorded may thirteen nine, hundred, seventy one.

"hebron" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"That. Then took over Gaza and immediately started shooting thousands and thousands of rockets on our civilian populations. The wasn't for the Iron Dome Systems at shoot the rockets out of the air we would have thousands of casualty literally just nonstop Rogers of a rockets and it really showed the Israeli people that it was a huge stake to put your hope into piece like just by running away that there needs to be peace through strength is Ronald Reagan would say that we need to find a way that we can have peace. But real peace not not just a document signed and this was a huge mistake and I think we learned our lesson on that when I hope so. Well. The one thing that Israel has done over the last forty years is continually give up land and the pursuit of peace. The Sinai Peninsula gave up many parts to as you mentioned, we'll gave up way too much sovereignty in the Golan Heights region and what people don't realize is the inequality that exists in the Middle East. There's only one Jewish state, but there's plenty of places for Arabs to go. Suppress and do all those things and what doesn't exist and what people don't realize. There's not a lot of democracy in the middle, East but there is an Israel three of all three. Abraham religions represented in the Knesset. Where you and I in the Supreme Court as well I believe. But the one, the one point that you guys have is we want to be a Jewish state. We want to be able to have a Jewish state. Why can you have an Arab state? We can have a Jewish state and with that you have freedom of religion and I tell Americans this and I want to film this next time I go because they don't believe it and I've actually never seen it actually captured I think well enough where I drive down to Hebron from Jerusalem go south and I I remember asking my very. Good friend a meet and Matan from in through. Tsu. They're great guys and I remember I think it was Matan that was driving and there was this big orange sign with the arrows and for an American you can't really comprehend this and I'm GonNa try to visualize this for my listeners and I turned to my I turn my friend. I say what happens if we go to this red Arrow to the right because it's all in? It's all either it was either in Arabic is in was in some other language I didn't understand and so he said Oh you die. Talking about you die. You don't understand that is either zone one or zone to of Palestinian. Authority control. He's like if you're I took a right turn right there, they'd cut our heads off and destroy our car. And I remember turning to. My is just that simple. You turn right and we're in civilized society now and uncivilized society there said, yes, it's at simplysafe. Arabs come here. You know we treat them. Well, we've probably given food and give them government benefits I said that's the most perfect picture I could possibly imagine I said the return right here they'll kill us. And if we stay on this path, we won't because we're in Israel can you talk about how that kind of double standard exists and yet the UN in the EU continually do their? Everyday. While here..

Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus I want you to know we are lucky to have charlie. Charlie kirks running the white. House folks. I WANNA. Thank Joe he's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building. One of the most powerful youth organisations ever created turning point USA will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Hey everybody. Welcome to this episode of the Charlie. Kirk show I am joined by my friend. Josh Rhinestone he has written a very interesting book about a place that is very near and dear to my heart I am a outspoken kit for Israel. I defend Israel against all of the bitter anti-semites that are in America and I. I'm proud Christian and I think Israel is a very important part of the Christian tradition inherited Josh welcome to the Charlie Kirk Shop. Thank you Charlie. I'm a huge fan. It's good to be on his A. Well thank you. So choice your book first of all, tell us about it and why you wrote it. I the books called Titus trump and the track, of Israel, the power of eight diplomacy. A. Off. The. Director of the Knesset Knowledge Caucus as being the parliament of Israel, the Caucasus deals with and I'm also the president of the Israeli nation in over the last fifteen years. I realized that it's Christians not countries that are standing of Israel and because of the deep love end support from Bible believing Christians I realized that we need to start. Working together and doing things together, and then when we did the results were standing, but it led to a lot of questions you know you were at the for instance, the Jerusalem, embassy opening and of the eight hundred people there seven, hundred of them were American Christians and people start saying why wire Christian standing with Israel when no one else will. And I thought it was important to write a book that explained not only wire Christianity this Israel but how can stand with Israel and what's the future of the relationship between Jews and Christians in the twenty first century? A. Terrific. So tell us about the pro president trump approach you have in your book. Well look. President Trump I. Measure is the most pro Israel president in the history of America. The Foundation Dacian hid. Fostering will week while faith-based diplomacy that's taking biblical support and turning into real political action made a list about five years ago of the top ten things America could do for Israel Donald Trump in the last three and a half years has done nine of them. It's it's outstanding and he did them so fast that people hardly notice if any president would done one of them. Would have been a massive deal. But, it's it's incredible..
The West Bank Epidemic Began - March 21, 1983
"A production of iheartradio. Hey y'all it's Eve's again and welcome to another episode of This Day in History Class. I am still at home recording from my closet so if I sound any different than that is why. But the history doesn't end so let's get on with the show. Today is March twenty. First Twenty twenty. The day was March. Twenty first nineteen eighty three the first wave of cases the West Bank. Fainting epidemic began in the town of Arba epidemic lasted until early April in the end researchers determined that it was likely triggered by psychological factors on the morning of March twenty first a seventeen year old student at a girls school in Florida noted feeling throat irritation and difficulty breathing. She also felt dizziness and abdominal pain over the next couple of hours. More students in other classes and a teacher began experiencing similar symptoms. Some of the students reported smelling rotten eggs. When public health officials arrived at the school? They figured that toxic gas was the culprit but none was found and doctors could not determine the cause of their symptoms. The school was closed but more people fell ill over the next few days by March twenty six. The illness had spread to the town of Janine in northern West Bank and surrounding villages though most of the cases occurred among female students some also occurred among Israeli Defence Force soldiers. Dozens of people were admitted to the hospital with residents reporting seeing a car. That was emitting a thick cloud of smoke. A third wave of the epidemic occurred on April third mostly around the city of Hebron in the West Bank. This wave spread quickly with most students. Seeing symptoms within a couple of hours students and some soldiers were affected by headaches and blurred vision in addition to the abdominal pains and dizziness after these outbreaks schools were closed and no more people reported being affected by the epidemic. All in all there were more than nine hundred forty people who fell ill during the epidemic to figure out it's 'cause researchers took air samples from ascites analyzed them they also took soil and dust samples and analyze suspicious substances

How Could Hypersonic Missiles Work?
"Today's episode is brought to you by the capital one venture card the capital one venture card you earn unlimited double miles every purchase every day and you can use those miles toward travel expenses like flights hotels rental cars and more just book and pay for your travel using your venture card and redeem your miles toward the cost capital one. What's in your wallet? Credit approval required capital one bank U._S._A.. An welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio Hebron stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here at a meeting in Arlington Virginia in late two thousand eighteen. One of the Pentagon's top officials told an audience of defense executives that the U._S. is locked in a tight race with Russia and China to develop a new game changing weapon the could fly at many times the speed of sound in could be used to launch devastating attack upon an emmy in a matter of minutes these which was told by Michael de Griffin the Department of Defense Undersecretary for Research at engineering that of all of the technological marvels at the Pentagon hoped to create developing a hypersonic missile Dole was his highest priority. It's hard to understand why hypersonic missiles technology that could be deployed as soon as the mid twenty twenty s sounds like the sort of exotic menace that villain would dream up in James Bond thriller. We could get them to work. Hypersonic missiles could have the ability to fly and maneuver it speeds between five and twenty five thousand kilometers per hour at a range of altitudes up to one hundred kilometers above earth surface for our non-metric friends. That's about three to fifteen thousand miles per hour at up to. Sixty two miles high at the edge of orbital space these capabilities could make a nightmare to defend against them because they would be moving so fast that it would be difficult to predict where they were about to strike until the last few minutes before impact end because the missiles travel. It's such a high speed their sheer kinetic energy alone would enable them to wreak destruction without carrying any conventional explosives or nuclear warheads. There are different potential methods of attaining fantastic speed what approaches to fire conventional missile that would in turn release smaller hypersonic glide vehicle which would fly up into the upper layers of the atmosphere another approach would utilize a rocket or advanced jet engines such as a scrammed jet military visionaries have in contemplating hypersonic weapons for decades but it wasn't until recently the concept begin to see him close to fruition not due to anyone specific breakthrough in technology but rather due to a combination of progresses and political motivation. We spoke by email with Eon de buoyed a professor of airspace engineering at the University of Michigan. He explained to develop a missile. You I have to show that the platform can fly emission of interest that was demonstrated in the U._S.. In Two thousand ten to twenty fourteen by scrammed jet powered demonstration Asian flights while the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or Darpa to flight tests of their H.. T. V. to boost glide vehicle ended in failure. Significant progress was demonstrated an important lessons learned in an overlapping time period the Pentagon and demonstrated longer range hypersonic vehicle capabilities and their conventional prompt strike program Darpa in the Air Force then partnered to mature many of the systems needed on a platform to make into a weapon as such as the guidance navigation and control materials. Dell's structures and rocket boosters but the U._S. wasn't alone. Interest in developing hypersonic capabilities Boyd said China was watching and learning and at some point started investing hyper sonics since two thousand fifteen it became evident that significant progress was being made that at least in numbers of flight tests conducted appeared to show China Outpacing U._S. efforts and in Russia where they've worked on hypersonic for decades like the U._S. also seem to have had recent successes but test flights in response to the Chinese and Russian progress the trump administration is pushing to develop hypersonic weapons as soon as possible and is requesting funding of two point six billion dollars for hypersonic research by the Air Force Navy Army and Darpa in its budget request for the twenty thousand financial all year the managing editor for National Security for the Center for Public Integrity. One are Jeffrey Smith reported in The New York Times magazine that spending on developing hypersonic weapons could rise to five billion dollars a year as the U._S. pushes to develop a deployable hypersonic or Sonic Missile System in the next two to three years though hypersonic missiles could carry nuclear warheads the missiles being developed by the U._S. will only be equipped with conventional explosives but they'll still be plenty fearsome as Smith wrote in The Times of quote the missiles function like nearly invisible power drills at smash holes in their targets to catastrophic affect. They'll impact their targets with a force equivalent to three to four tons of T._N._T.. According to Speth in some ways hypersonic. Like missiles presented different and perhaps even scarier threat to peace than present nuclear arsenals because they could enable a nation to launch a surprise attack and crippling enemies ability to retaliate leaving it helpless against the threat of nuclear attack. They'd be difficult to defend against I for a number of reasons their speed the fact that they fly in an area between aviation and spaceflight that we've never had to defend in and they're maneuverable meaning that have to be tracked throughout their flight with accuracy Boyd explained another issue quote put this class of missiles is not covered by any currently valid weapons treaty. This poses a number of concerns including the fact that the nation's primarily involved the U._S.. China and Russia do not have established protocols in place for the use of these systems finally only the potential for a hypersonic weapon to carry either a conventional warhead or a nuclear warhead means that a nation under threat wouldn't know whether a nuclear response should be considered that all means that in the near future hypersonic missiles could lead to a continuous atmosphere of hyper anxiety in which nations might be afraid to not strike first or to instantly launch a counter attack at the first hint of trouble or at the very least it could prompt nations to spend even more money on not just counter-attacks but defense measures.

And of course, the autobahn bundles Audubon as it's known in Germany is really just if federal highway system there, but to visitors the allure of the autobahn is the speed limit or lack of one cars can top two hundred forty kilometers per hour during normal conditions on this famed freeway that's about one hundred fifty miles per hour.

A Bill that could make the state home to what is being called the American autobahn John Morlock, the Republican state Senator from Orange County introduced state Bill three nineteen in February of two thousand nineteen to relieve traffic congestion along interstate five and state route ninety nine according to the proposed plan both roadways would get new lanes. One northbound and one southbound drivers in the new lanes would not have to abide by a speed limit though, the existing sixty five miles per hour. Limit would remain in effect in the. The existing lanes that's about one hundred and five kilometers per hour. The idea also could provide an alternative California's controversial long-delayed and possibly canceled high speed rail project the proposal comes on the heels of California governor Gavin Newsom announcement that the bullet train as planned is too expensive at an estimated cost of seventy seven billion dollars and would take too long to build. There are no official cost estimates for the Audubon Bill, but in February Senator Morlock told the Los Angeles Times it could cost about three billion dollars. He also said the money would come from the states cap and trade program which requires companies to offset pollution by purchasing credits. If plans move forward the American auto Bahn would be constructed along major freeways with Bela Bach area, which is about eighty miles or one hundred twenty nine kilometers north of Los Angeles at the southern point in Sacramento or Stockton. At the northern end that means theoretically vehicles travelling north at one hundred miles per hour. In the unrestricted lane could make the trip from Sacramento. Tila Beck in about three hours coin that Dr takes over four hours well over depending on traffic. Aside from improving drive times for those along that route the authors of the Bill claim it would also help reduce congestion, which would in turn decrease greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles stuck idling for that reason. The Bill specifies that funding should come from California's greenhouse gas reduction fund which regularly supports transportation and transit projects that reduce pollution. Critics point out. However, the missions go up at high speeds, so encouraging people to drive faster means there wouldn't be any net reduction in pollution, in fact, Bill maga- Vern a spokesperson for the coalition for clean air told SF gate that the net reduction in emissions theory is ridiculous. In addition to the pollution, concerns. Critics are also worried about the risks. To drivers Maureen vocal a spokeswoman for the national safety council told USA today that numerous studies demonstrate that Wednesday's raised speed limits. They can expect an increase in traffic fatalities statistics from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that in two thousand seventeen speeding was a factor. In twenty six percent of all traffic fatalities that accounts for nearly ten thousand deaths. Several states across the US have increased speed limits. For instance, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming allow drivers to travel eighty miles per hour on certain highways and Texas allows eighty-five miles per hour along a specific stretch of state highway one thirty that's up to about one hundred and thirty seven kilometers per hour. However, the current maximum speed limit in California is still seventy miles per hour about one hundred thirteen kilometers per hour. With some stretches along the proposed Audubon. Route a little bit lower. Californian's shouldn't get too excited. Though, yet the Bill has a long way before ever becoming law and may never get there. If it passes the vote in the states house and Senate it must then be approved by governor Newsom. For contrast Germany's autobahn covers seven thousand five hundred miles. That's about twelve thousand kilometers, and there are some sections with speed limits. New drivers in Germany are actually trained on the autobahn to learn how to handle the high speeds and the country's licensing process. A lot more difficult time consuming and expensive than it is in the United States if California's autobahn gets approved this three hundred some mile stretch of road might only be a start to a larger system.

Nasa has announced that selected a dozen payloads of scientific equipment that it plans to fly to the moon on private commercial rockets and Landers the missions planned for later in two thousand nineteen are an early step toward achieving the space. Agency's overarching goal to send astronauts backed the moon via commercial space craft in twenty Twenty-eight necessary renewed focus on the moon reflects a late 2017 policy shift by the Trump administration which decided that these space agencies should return to the moon, which was last visited by Paolo seventeen astronauts back in December of nineteen seventy two. Previously. The Obama administration had abandoned a planned lunar mission, partly because of cost in favor of focusing upon going to Mars in the twenty thirties. We spoke with Steve Clark the deputy associate administrator for exploration in Nasr's science mission. Directorate he explained that the missions flown by commercial lunar payload services will include a mixture of scientific instruments and technology demonstrations, he said we want to fly a mixture as much as we can. So they collectively can provide data to the science community and to the folks who are designing the next human Lander the scientific instruments sent to the moon will be Clark said trying to characterize lunar surface looking for hydrogen molecules and actual traces of water or water ice in the soil and looking for various other elements there on the lunar surface. But those studies will do more than just add to our knowledge of earth's natural satellite. Nasa administrator, Jim Bryden Stein said in a press release. We know they're volatile is at the polls on the moon. Dan, and quite frankly that water ice could represent rocket fuel. If we have the capacity to generate rocket fuel from the surface of the moon and get them into orbit around the moon. We could use that to build a fuelling depot. On the technology side. One payload will include solar energy technology to attempt to advance the engineering of solar cells, hopefully, making the more efficient that open space missions that are dependent upon solar energy, but the work will have applications back on earth as well. Other technology being tested involves entry descent and landing systems, which will help improve the design of future lunar Landers, including the human Lander that eventually will take astronauts to lunar surface again necessary long range plan also calls for building a lunar orbital station in the twenty twenties which will serve as a platform. Both poor observing the lunar surface and staging manned exploration missions haven't instruments on the lunar surface as well as in orbit around the moon. We'll give humanity to new valuable vantage points from which to explore the moon and beyond unlike the Apollo program, the commercial space industry will be heavily involved in the effort. Transporting astronauts to the orbital station end down to the surface the agency. He already has announced plans to work with space companies to develop reusable lunar Landers those spacecraft could shuttle back and forth between the lunar orbital platform and the surface of the moon. We also spoke by E mail with Dale Scranton, the executive vice president of the national space Sidey, which is a nonprofit group whose goal is to promote a spacefaring civilization. He said that they support Nasr's strategy, quote, the fundamental advantage of a lunar orbital system in these support of lunar exploration and development is that it can be a gas station where reusable lunar Landers dock and are refueled NASA recently announced human land, a reference design, which features to reasonable components. The ascent stage and space tug along with a tanker to bring fuel to the lunar orbital station are constructive, but partial step in this direction at this point scrammed says that putting boots on the moon in the near future. No longer should be viewed as a desirable goal in itself. But rather as a means to further a larger plan of space colonization? He said humans on the moon should grow organically out of what we are doing on the moon not appear as a stunt and imitation of Apollo a to potential goals for lunar return include mining oxygen to fuel future Mars trips and building a radio telescope on the dark side of the moon to take advantage of the unique radio quiet on the side of the moon phases away from earth. Both of these goals will almost certainly include humans on the lunar surface. But boots are not the primary goal. We will certainly keep you in the loop. As more news comes to light.

Why Do Flying Squirrels Glow Hot Pink in UV Light?

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Bam here. It's amazing. What you can find. If you shine a flashlight into your backyard trees, a biologist in Wisconsin have made a rather startling discovery that way in part startling because it apparently hadn't been recorded until now three different species of flying. Squirrels specifically southern northern and Humboldt flying squirrel, which are found across North America and into Central America sport light Brown for that when spotlighted with ultra-violet illumination lights up a hot bubblegum pink the phenomenon occurs on both the top and bottom services of the flying. Squirrels though, it's the underside of a flying. Squirrels carriage, including the flaps of skin that spread out when the squirrel glides from tree to tree really glows Jonathan Martin a biologist at Northland college in Ashland. Wisconsin made the discovery in the forest one evening just by shining a UV flashlight into the tree canopy he was looking for lichens, which are certain type. Of frogs and flora that light up in UV light. That's when he heard the church of a southern flying, squirrel as the squirrel glided by he shined the flashlight on it. And he saw a flash of fuchsia. Martin and his colleagues soon found themselves examining the skins of flying. Squirrels at the science museum of Minnesota. And the field museum in Chicago. They took photos of the skins under visible, light and ultra violet light all but one specimen of the gliders glowed pink that has been variously compared to bubble gum dayglo and lycra from the nineteen eighty s there is also the study republished in the January twenty third twenty nineteen issue of the journal of Malecki, the pink is caused the researchers say by the furs fluorescence, which is what happens when light is absorbed in one wavelength and emitted in another you may remember an episode. We did about how scorpions fluorescent bright green and ultraviolet light some birds also have this trait some fish too few mammals do though flying. Squirrels are nocturnal and are most active at dusk and dawn, no other squirrels in North America are known to possess this ability to floor s including tree squirrels like the eastern gray though, there are over. Two hundred and fifty squirrel species around the world and to be fair. The researchers have not yet tested other species for the next question is what purpose could this fluorescent serve. Humans can't see ultraviolet wavelengths except under special lighting, but other animals can one theory suggests the pink is used to confuse als, which as it turns out also have undersides that Flores a similar pink ELS prey on flying. Squirrels among other mammals, perhaps the squirrels evolved to mimic als. So as not to be eaten by them another theory, which is already being challenged is that the pink attracts potential mates a flying. Squirrels have mating seasons. But their flamboyant fluorescence is available for viewing year round. Anyway, it's not even clear that squirrels can see in UV wavelengths. Ultimately, the researchers point out that age old impetus of science, this is proof of how much we don't know and still need to learn the study concluded the ecological significance of this.

Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff. Lauren Bogle bomb. Here. Keen wa has caused quite a lot of confusion during its short tenure on the worldwide seen race for thousands of years in the Indian mountain region of South America. It's only really blown up worldwide over the past decade, the United Nations food and Agriculture Organization declared twenty thirteen the international year of wa giving the crop a big boost on the world stage. The declaration was intended as a way to highlight crops that were unknown if forgotten at least to the wider world as a way of promoting food security, but along with Kim was rabbit sense to the top of the health food chain came news reports that local populations in Peru and Bolivia could no longer afford to buy it as the prices had doubled or tripled. But before we get into that some basics Qinhua spelled Q U. I N A in case you've seen the word, but never heard it pronounced cooks like rice looks sort of like couscous and packs a serious nutritive punch. It's high in protein contains all these amino acid. And is high in iron and fiber. It's eaten like a grain. But it's really more like a seed or a vegetable, and it's also gluten free in short checks a lot of boxes for folks looking to eat fewer animal products, or if you were carbs, but is it's mainstream popularity hurting the people who grow it. Researchers have called through year's worth of data two thousand four to two thousand thirteen from a national Peruvian survey to find out how these seemingly worldwide Kenwa frenzy affected. The quality of local citizens lives over that period. Their circumstances actually seemed to have improved. We spoke by Email with one of those researchers Marc Bellemare and associate professor of applied economics and director of the center for international food and agricultural policy at the university of Minnesota. He said in most cases, we find that rising Kenwa prices have modestly increased to the welfare of both Kimba producers and can what consumers in Peru at worst. We find a small decline in welfare in some region. Wins. But that decline is almost nil at less than one percent of total welfare welfare here is defined as the value of a household consumption expenditures, Bella explained since consumption tends to be function of income consumption is a good proxy for income. But it's not necessarily all good news. There are a couple of concerns that could still affect the people who originally grew Kenwa Bella. Mir said the first is that once the price of kin wall fell back down to its pre twenty ten level many, small producers told us they were holding onto their grain in the hope that the price would spike back up. But this is highly unlikely to happen considering that with the want price spike in two thousand thirteen many new producers got into the Kenwa production game which lowered the price a probably permanently. Unless there's a new spike in the international demand of kin wa. The other problem is an issue of maintaining bio-diversity very few varieties of kin while are exported to places like the US and UK especially compared with these some hundred varieties grown in Peru. And so if it's most worthwhile for producers to grow for export markets. Those other local varieties might disappear forever. This phenomenon isn't good for the longstanding health of crops, and it's not a new problem take the banana when I say banana, you probably think of a very particular variety of the fruit, but someone greatly enlarged in gently bent a yellow number two pencil. That's a cabin dish banana, and it's the only one many of us encounter outside of the tropics its popularity elbowed out other varieties and farmers came to rely on it as a staple export. Which sounds great a right up until a fungus that affects only that variety swept in and started destroying crops. If you haven't heard scientists are now racing to figure out a way to save it, and that's the danger of monocultures, the Irish potato blight is another example. That's why organizations like bio-diversity international have piloted programs to give native farmers incentives to grow the less in demand varieties of kin wa so Wilkin will ever wear out. Its welcome it. Sure doesn't look that way. Where it used to be limited to health food stores and vegan rest. Wants can what is showing up on mainstream menus now in place of rice or pasta as part of main entrees as breakfast cereal or even added to soups and salads, hopefully with cooperation among exporters, and researchers conditions will only continue to improve for can was growers in for Ken while itself.

And today's episode is a classic from our erstwhile host Christian Seder. This one was a script in our old YouTube days, and we found that it was one of our most controversial why does gasoline smell so good for those of you thinking what gasoline smells gross, just believe us for some folks it smells delicious. Either. Gang. I'm Christian Sager and had you ever been to the gas station before filling up your jalopy when suddenly your nostril hairs twins with an aromatic burning sensation it's like the wise sages of Leonard Skinner once saying ooh that smell. Can't you smell that smell? I'm talking about gasoline people. Why does it smell so good? While the first answer is pretty simple actually gasoline or petrol as our friends across the pond like to call. It contains a chemical hydrocarbon called benzine used to boost its octane rating and benzene naturally has a sweet scent to it that our noses are especially sensitive to in fact, it evaporates so quickly that you'd smell benzine instantly. If you just put some in a dish in the same room, you're in it is so pungent we can get a whiff of it. If there's only one to five parts per million in the air, we breathe and benzenes not just in gasoline. We use it in plastics pesticides and detergents. It's also in a lot of mass. Produced toys. So it's possible. You're associating the smell of gasoline with that new toys smell from your childhood, but don't let it's odor. Get. It's enchanting hooks in you too far because Skinner also had it, right? When they sang that smell, the smell of death surrounds you. That's right. The smell of benzene can be fork. But it's also toxic. If you inhale large amounts of it it actually attacks your nervous system. Luckily, it's so pungent that we have plenty of warning before hazardous exposure. That's why it can start to make you nauseous or give you a headache after awhile and the consequences of sniffing too, much benzine and gasoline are not pretty inhalant abuse leads to loss of consciousness, seizures liver injury and distress within your heart and lungs keep going after that and you're looking at neurological impairment and straight up brain damage, the EPA OSHA and who also categorized benzene as a carcinogen the cancers. It's associated with the most are leukemia and. Mm foam and get this. There's possibly another less dangerous reason why we like the smell of gasoline so much. A study published in two thousand nine issue of addiction research in theory indicates that gasoline smells better to us when we're hungry. It found that people rate the smell of gasoline as being more pleasant and intense the longer it had been since they'd last eaten more research is obviously required. But there seems to be a link between our degree of hunger and our odor perception of gasoline. Maybe that's why gas stations make such a killing on selling junk food.

I'm Lauren Vogel bomb and during the final month of the year or sometimes much sooner vast numbers of harvested trees begin their migration indoors or their festooned with ribbons garlands, ornaments and lights, although these trees are grown in the spirit of Christmas. They don't magically or genetically aspire to a perfectly peaked shape after Christmas. Trees reach a height of about three to four feet that's around one meter or should workers start helping the shape along with the process called shearing. The trees do most of their new growth in the spring after that starts hardening up in the summer workers share each tree individually with long sharp knives. The most common types of Christmas. Tree are Douglas fir Canaan for Frazier for and several species of spruce or pine however out of these six hundred and thirty species of conifers in the world, the majority don't actually grow in a strictly conical shape. So trimming is a crucial task when growing these specimens meant to become Christmas. Trees. This pruning process must continue every summer until the trees reach a marketable age, which usually takes six to eight years. So why did Christmas celebrants demand pure middle trees during the holidays the notions behind much of the world's traditional Christmas decor, originated in northern Europe? And particularly Germany where enduring images entails from the mid nineteenth century still ensure that sugar plums are dancing for our heads. And that our Christmas trees are conical in that part of the world energy green trees are pyramid-shaped for good reason each needle leaf layer has a better opportunity to gather sunlight for photosynthesis. If the sun isn't blocked by wide top layers, this tiered arrangement allows the trees to shake off heavy snowfall and the wide spaces between branches that the winds whipped through without causing too much damage, although synthetic Christmas trees, don't generally drop needles on the floor or pose a fire damaged by drying out. They can't replicate the experience of selecting a real Christmas tree. And for a lot of people. It just isn't Christmas without the pie. Any smell of freshly cut tree billions of consumers agree, according to the national Christmas trees association in two thousand sixteen a consumer survey revealed that the sales of real Christmas trees outpaced those a fake trees twenty seven point four million to eighteen point six million. And as they grow and await their moment in the spotlight. These real Christmas trees provide homes for wild birds and animals while storing carbon and generating oxygen and best of all the trees are renewable resource.

Palestinians trapped in coercive environment, says UN rights official
"This is loose. Graffiti of UN news, many Palestinians, living under his rarely occupation suffer from a course of environment were settlements expansion has made people's lives. So unbearable that they feel pressured to move according to a top u n official there James Heenan, head of the UN human rights office in the occupied Palestinian territory said that permits for building in the West Bank were almost non-existent now for Palestinians, speaking to Reema Bauza of UN news in Jerusalem. Mr. Heenan explains the challenges Palestinians routinely face today in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip was buying and then he's truce Lamon Gaza will have their own different types of human rights challenges. But some of the challenges of calling across the whole area. One is use of force another is freedom of movement. Another is the way in which space society and human rights defenders dramatically, and if we talked specifically about Gaza, what are the issues that were you the most widely the buzz is really hope for the population Gazans feel and are under pressure from old photos at the moment, they are suffering from an eleven year blockade and closures imposed by Israel. They suffering essentially also under the split between the West Bank and Gaza, the political split and the the factor thirties in Gaza, Mike loss, very hard for a number of people, including human rights defenders for us. The concern for Gaza is all about. Allowing people to have an adequate standard of living, which is a human rod under the ICCPR international could covenant uncivil political rights and towards that end. The UN is working tool to humanitarian response to what's going on in Gaza. Ultimately, of course, it's a political problem humanitarian, what are the other human rights challenges specific to the West Bank and east Jerusalem at the moment, the biggest human rods challenges are generated by settlements the expansion of settlements. And we produced two reports a year on this. In and of itself creates a number of human rights violations. So for example, severance themselves are violations of international, we know that. But when you establish a settlement in areas c in the West Bank, he generally brings populations into proximity brings a settlers into proximity with the local Palestinians, and we know that that proximity generates things like settle of items the take over of land blocking the freedom of movement. The Palestinians nearby things like the blocking of access to services for Palestinians nearby. So the settlement enterprises people call it doesn't just have a problem with the Silverton themselves, but the impact on human rights. The biggest thing that's happening. Most recently is what we call the environment where you have a desire to move, Tulsa and communities for the purposes of settlement expansion or creation. What's happened at the long pass? I communities would have just been forcibly moved. Now. What's happening is those communities are put on the enormous pressure. So feel I have no choice but to move, and that's what we call. The course environment. This comes from the jury's prudence of you hate Trump troubles on the former Yugoslavia this idea that you can make lifestyle bearable for people through combination factors. They feel they have to. So for example, if you have a community near settlement sky to expand they can be subject to settle labontes. They can be subject to demolitions. So they cannot build in the West Bank term ability in the West Bank. But I'll sit ins are almost nonexistent. So any expansion they come undertake the young people get married. They can't start the village because there's no it to live. They can't expect access to services are blocked a firing zone can be declared by military nearby, which will mean that they can't access they land. And it can also mean that there is actual live far near the village which is dangerous last year. We had a sixteen year old boy killed by unexploded ordinance of this in the field. A combination of all of these factors all of which are human rights violations as well. Jen at their base makes life extremely difficult for people, and you see that people are leaving because of this. We know type in the West Bank of people on the huge amount of pressure to leave, and we know cases in Hebron where families of decided to move. Now each case has to be looked at all it's merits businesses, very serious mental. And the thing is Palestinians have a very very strong resilience. So they don't move easily. But it doesn't mean that the pressure is not there for them to move. And we're concerned I'm concerned that saw these communities will feel they have to move at some point. We'll talk about the courts environment. What does your office do on that issue? We have not see role an illegal role. Yeah. I think the office has been instrumental in bringing together this idea and making sure that there's a common understanding about what environments based on the jurisprudence of into. National tribunals, we track the quiz environment that patents to see what's happening through the violence. Not just the instances of settler violence. But also, the trends, and we analyze trends, and we publish them. We are mandated by the UN to be public about these things. What is the final message would like to express? I think the involvement globally. Is not supportive of human rights to seem to be. Since some places ideology, the pasta or system in the past. And you hear a lot said about that these days, but as Kofi man once said, it's not it's not people who so human rights is relevant. It's usually governments he said even real and for us. It's more relevant than ever that not just our office. But everyone stands up for human rights because the car is very very worrying.

"You have no fingernails by the end of the game, and then you go, oh, wait, I was fine. He threw for three hundred and four. Oh, okay. We're good. Why doesn't help that? He he's making his, hey, on Chester Rogers and Eric Hebron rest, not the flashiest of of playmakers when he gets TY Hilton Dak though it will improve. It gets even better. So I mean, lock is just dependable, reliable, Russell Wilson heads into the by with a seventeen for twenty three to twenty two in three game. Another touchdown for lock it. What? What are the expectations for Wilson recipe season. He is a QB, here's leaky. What the he's still is eight to ten range guys. Is he a three to six range guy? He is a lower range, quarterback one for me. I mean, two hundred twenty two yards. That's fine. But to come, the yardage output compared to the touchdowns is not something that you generally see. You don't see one hundred ninety eight and three. It's it's difficult to make those things happen. Russell certainly can do it, but I'm not trusting him to be a top tier. Fantasy quarterback. He's fine. He's fine. Let's move into the studs at the running back position. Let me just say this. You wanna win. Find yourself one of these guys. Yeah, Todd Gurley Melvin Gordon saquon Barkley Kareem hunt, James, Connor girly career high. Two hundred eight yards of rushing could have had more if they gave him the ball more. What a game. I mean, I thought I was running away in a league with saquon girly outscored. Mike thought he was running away in a league with Gordon Gurley outscored Gordon. This is just otherworldly performance. It's really not fair. It's feels great. When you have lucky focus on things, twelve targets for saquon game script proof. We talked a lot about him after Thursday. So who do you want to pull out of here mean Sony, Michelle had a great week. You finally saw good week from latavius Murray. You find this all be week from Alex Collins. Yeah, my rising start to recall, we'll talk about him in a little while. Alex Collins game. I've would see if people are interested in Alex Collins nineteen cares for fifty four yards. Meanwhile Edwards, a third string running back that would be Gus, Edward. Thank you. The third string running back for the ravens is starting to get some play. It looks capable and we know Alex Collins is always on the lease with the fumbling problem. One rush for Buchan. It's a little hasn't hints on Alex Collins because with coming through with that performance, let's say the match up was finally juicy enough. If you're running back is going up against Arizona or the Denver Broncos you're going to have a good day. Is this just the way it is now Broncos, two straight games. Why? A two hundred yard rushers Crowell piercing. Yeah, I would. I'm going to. Clued, the Kansas City defense list, sunny, Michelle, twenty four for one. Oh, six and two. Michelle's gray? Yes, in great for three straight weeks on the ground. Now he's not getting targets. So he's a little capped on that..
