Ice Age Temperatures Help Predict Future Warming
"How. Much colder wasn't at the peak of the last ice age that's a question. Scientists have been trying to answer for decades, and now they have a new best guess eleven degrees Fahrenheit. That's a lot especially considering it's a global average parts of North America. We're much colder first of all large areas of the northeast were completely under ice. So that would have been pretty chilly wouldn't be living there but even here in the West right where we weren't covered by an ice, she would have been something like twenty degrees. Fahrenheit Lower Jessica tyranny a Paleo climatologist at the University of Arizona tyranny and her colleagues spent years compiling information about. Earth's climate at the height of the last glacial period about twenty thousand years ago. So we obviously don't have to Ramadan in the glacial periods. So we have to instead look for these kinds of standing indicators. One kind of stanton is plankton that lived in the ocean and got preserved in marine sediments. Scientists use these fossils to infer past ocean temperatures by studying changes in the chemistry of their shells and in the kinds of fats and other compounds they produced. Tyranny and her team then combine these data with a climate model to give a full picture of glacial conditions. It's actually technique us every day whether forecasting. What's new is we're using it for the past not the future. So we're actually hind casting if you will rather than forecasting the study is in the journal Nature. The findings suggest that the last ice age was significantly colder than scientists thought and that matters today the reason that. We want to know how cold last ice ages beyond the fact that it's just a cool thing to know. Is that we can actually use it to understand a quantity called climate sensitivity climate sensitivity is a measure of how much the planet warms in response to rising greenhouse gases. In this long ago case, we know how much carbon dioxide concentrations increased between the last ice age in preindustrial period from air bubbles trapped in ancient ice, and now we have tyrannies new results on the temperature difference between glacial and interglacial conditions. Together, these data suggest that low end estimates of climate sensitivity in which greenhouse gases don't cause much warming are unlikely to be correct if we have low climate sensitivity than than, we would be less worried about what all the missions are going to do. And so we can kind of rule those those possibility out know I suppose that's that's not great news.

[AI Futures] Steps Towards International AI Governance - with Futurist David Wood
"So David where I thought we'd start off here is around this broad topic of the governance of artificial intelligence I. think that there's concerns about the near-term around security privacy. There's longer term concerns about becoming more powerful people are thinking about should there be just regional surveys of governing technologies or or is it prudent to really think about global governance GM stance or way that you like to frame that problem? I'm all in favor of some local experimentation I. Think it's appropriate to have some things out to not obvious in advance that we can. Off. The Bat first time get a complete system of regulation. Correct. So I'm in favor of different parts of the globe whether it's the EU whether it's America whether it's China experimenting with a view to. Seeing which rules make more sense which rules viable. However, it has to be a stepping stone to watson envisioned global agreement because people will not surely be loath to commit themselves to that restrictions nationally locally if they perceive thought competition is going to be able to walk without these restrictions and get potential advantage. So we have to move into coast to international agreements to. Many people people are. Fearful of the any prospect of global government they feel that it's going to be d'italia -tarian or inch to wants the. Taliban. But what I will say is that we already have examples of global governance of various things. We have a sports organizations which managed to reach agreement on how the soccer football. World Cup is played. The Olympics Organization makes lots of agreements even though the constituent. Nations have lots of different political viewpoints and lots of different makeup. So there are examples of how useful agreements can be reached even between the ideological opponents. That's what we have to build on. I. Like the idea of local experimentation. It does indeed feel very hard to take a directly to the top okay world. Here's the page we're going to be on in terms of how data's treated or what is allowed to do or not allowed to do that Cetera. How do you see that playing out in terms of? Relative, near-term thinking about obviously the EU is they have their GDP are rules that are coming out. You see new sort of waves of these rules emerging in different countries than some observation by the global community as to how are they shaking out their implications for private sector innovation whether implications for human rights where implications elsewhere and then being able to use those as the experiments to build something more global. Exactly, right and the GDP aw in the EU is very important case point most people of mixed views about the actual implementation we often think, wow, this is clunky. This is A. This is poorly done on the the hind. We have sympathy towards what the rules are trying to do, and we say, yes, it is appropriate. Thought is the right to have an explanation. It's appropriate for people to understand how the data's being used and so on. So we can see that the intent is Goud. If maybe not. One hundred percent in agreement, but it's a starting point, but it is not something that's done once and then finished on the contrary. It's part of what should be an ongoing sequence my lendings in the Business World I spent twenty five years in the mobile technology and smartphones industry that was an industry in which there was a great deal of rapid change, their surprises of a new entrance of disappointments of things going wrong and. Then things going overwhelmingly right. My key lesson from all of that is the importance of agility the flexibility. Of course, you can set the overall long term direction, but you must stay get to that overall target in stages interim as moll steps, a new must be ready to your plan based on what you have lent in what new things become clear that were less clear L. ear on that face so we will get their stage-by-stage. I think politics the world of politics often seems almost like a domain were that innovation where in the private sector let's say is rampant stood to be the only game town isn't the only real game in town in politics to some degree because experimenting with fifty counties in Wisconsin, about how we're going to manage healthcare bills is really hard to do and seems somewhat viable as opposed to. Some big change for the whole state of the whole country and it just Kinda. Gets rolled out. Is there a way to sort foster a greater degree of this experimentation because it feels like at least historically, there have been limits to seeing politics as part of this iteration learning it's more of just clunking inevitability. It's not seen as maybe the global community is not look to aggregate policy as a way for us all to learn for us all to move forward. So ready to encourage that mindset in that learning like you saw in the private sector. One problem with politics is people really like to admit that they will wrong stu really like to have something a defied with them as being a failure whereas in business more people are willing to shrug and say, yes, dot to didn't walk as I expected and you know what analogy I'm wiser. And Business we talk about failing smart failing fast and feeling forward and it sounds like buzzwords. But all three of these things means something particular failing forward in particular means that you don't try and move on quickly and did deny the you ever were associated with such an experiment you say, well, here's what you've learned from it and you use that as a starting point for the next round of experiments but they politicians like to present themselves and we often as voters like to see all politicians is A. Superhuman Infallible Vegas and we need to have a much more human understanding of how politics works. So that's one thing that will help. A second thing that will help is more of a coalition that mentality rather than two different groups WanNa. The right and the other the laughed the Republicans at the Democrats or whatever politics is in my view much healthier when there are multiple different parties involved and where it's quite easy for people to move from one party to another as their owner. Viewpoint changes evolves over the time. So sadly, when two different blocks very adversarial. Limits the ability to have more meaningful and useful discussion. It pushes into their role in mental state as well. It puts into this tribal frame in which we often don't want to say something we think is true because it might be embarrassing for offsides. So instead, we latch onto something that makes the other side look stupid even though we may not fully believe it. So it's a very bad way of having a proper. Discussion. So sometimes I talk about we need more than just democracy. We need a super democracy. We need to learn how to have these discussions in a way that We're happy to admit that we've been wrong with hoppy to admit we've changed our mind after all to court the Economist John Maynard Keynes though he may not actually have said this when the exchange I changed my mind, the
How Did Plesiosaurs Swim So Efficiently?
"From two hundred and twenty to sixty, six, million years ago. A strange order of marine reptiles called please sores roamed earth's oceans though they were a diverse bunch in many respects. Every known species did share one major trait they all had four broad paddle like flippers and in most cases, the hind pair almost looked like a duplicate of the front set both in size and shape that makes it easy sores, which were not dinosaurs but lived at the. Same, time unique among ocean going vertebrates. That's because no other marine reptile or mammal extinct or extent sports fore flippers of similar size. So how did this unique body plan work researchers might have just found the answer on August thirtieth in twenty seventeen an international team of scientists published a new study on please IUS Sore locomotion headed by Paleontologists Luke. Muscat. The group used measurements from a pair of British species to construct to replica flippers one four limb and one hind limb with three, d.. Printing technology these were affixed to a custom built robot, which moved the replicas around in a tank of water to see exactly how the paddles would turn things up musket and company released colorful dyes into the tank as well and tracked their motion through water. Afterward, the scientists put the robotic legs through numerous simulations designed to test out different swimming styles. They found the most energy efficient stroke called for both flippers to work in concert when the front limb flapped in this test it created. To vortices in the water as the current push these backward, the Hind flipper weaved in between them by capitalizing on the wake generated by its frontal counterpart. The rear limb made its own flapping motion sixty percent more powerful, and this finding actually contradicts a twenty thirteen study, which argued that please the source swam like sea turtles using their four limbs to push themselves forward while their rear paddles acted as rudders using the robot muskets team also tested this existing hypothesis, they found the rear paddle. Drag if kept in a stationary position but by using all four paddles to actively generate thrust it please or could move more efficiently. However, the Co authors acknowledged that like most aquatic animals please probably adjusted their swimming style as the situation called for it. Furthermore, the study is complicated by the fact that several please easiest source species had four limbs that were noticeably longer than their rear ones or vice versa looks like follow up research will have to take species specific data into account.
Woman Takes Selfie With Bear on Hiking Trail in Mexico
"Taken over. We are striker Incline. Here's our friend David. Oh, no telling us what to do if we happen to encounter a bear and a very cool story, Heart stopping video out of Mexico shows a moment of black bear walks right up to a group of hikers. To begin sniffing a woman's hair. The bear apparently quite interested in this one young woman in particular, and she was hiking with several other people in an ecological park and sent bedroom. Garza Garcia, Mexico When this happened, and now some people might scream or try to run in a situation like this, But this young woman and her friends are all Pretty nonchalant about the whole thing. In fact, the woman whips out her cell phone to take a selfie with the bear since you're supposed to keep from a bear. Is 100 yards and from wolves 100 yards. This is how they knew which one of their friends was having her period bear went right up to her. You could tell very clear. It was very obvious Striker. You could tell which one And they were like, Oh, man, why do we bring sherry this time of the month, and the bear stands up next to her on its hind legs clearly ready for its close up. The bear is much taller than this lady. The bear then begins to walk away before turning back and you'll see it here making a beeline for the woman watches. What he does this and he tries to bite her and then swings on pause at her before casually. Walking away, of course, is not something experts encourage you to do If you encounter a bear in the wild. What should we do? David? Just the opposite. Actually, The best thing that you could do is he seemed out, not take yourself, but I do. Sometimes he knows what he's supposed to say. And he's the lead like Wait a minute. I'll find the one he's supposed to do again. Yell loudly at that they're making as much noise as possible, hopefully scaring it from the area and preserving its natural fear of humans. I don't know if you've ever seen a bear attack, but they are vicious. When they decide to move. They move so quickly. How would she take a cellphone in this world? She's another smart move. Unbelievable. That's that's why the only reason why I played that whole story was to get to the very end of them talking about the bear well. Here's what he said. Is actually something that We're not doing and that is they They were never scared of humans. Then they learn to be scared of humans. And now, once again, they're forgetting to be scared of human. That's the scream is supposed to remind them that they're like, Oh, wait a minute. Hold on. There's a hierarchy here and And that is the major thing that the shift that has been happening as of late. That's why we're calling it. The big animal takeover is that they're just not as scared of us anymore, because instead of us pulling out like a bow and arrow wherever answered We're pulling up. Cell phones were taking
Florida man accused of using coronavirus relief funds to buy Lamborghini
"Florida man receives three point nine million dollars in Covid nineteen relief funds Biza Lamborghini and gets arrested for fraud by just SI- abates a Florida man has been charged with fraud and other criminal offenses after receiving three point nine million dollars in covid. Nineteen relief funds and using the money to purchase among other things a Lamborghini. David T hines twenty nine was arrested on Friday and charged on Monday according to a statement by the Department of Justice over three million dollars has been seized from his bank accounts along with the sports vehicle. Authorities allege that hinds fraudulently applied for about thirteen point five million dollars in paycheck protection program P. P P loans for a few companies P P P part of the corona virus aid relief and Economic Security Act was enacted on March twenty ninth to provide small businesses with forgivable loans. Any money given to accompany on behalf of the program is supposed to be used for rent or mortgage costs, employee, salaries and utilities. According to the DOJ statement, Heinz lied on the loan applications and made inaccurate statements about the expenses of the companies including the amount paid to employees. Those purported employees either did not exist or earned a fraction of what hines claimed his P. P P applications. US Postal Inspector Brian McMillan says in an affidavit, according to the Miami Herald collectively hines falsely claimed his companies paid millions of dollars in payroll in the first quarter of twenty twenty state and bank records however show little to no payroll expense during this period. Hines was approved for funding and received three point nine million dollars just a few days after getting the money, he bought the Lamborghini for three hundred eighteen thousand dollars. He is also alleged to have purchased luxury items from stores and resorts. In the past few weeks. Florida has become one of the hot spots for US Covid, nineteen cases and recently passed New York for having the second most confirmed cases in the country behind California. Hines was in federal custody over the weekend released on bond on Monday and is scheduled to be arraigned on October

Will My Supply Chain Survive COVID-19?
"The commercial aerospace supply chain is writing. The sudden collapse, the spring passenger air travel after the outbreak of the latest novel Corona Virus and it's cove in Nineteen, disease has upended fortunes in the airliner manufacturing industry. That matters because commercial aerospace is responsible for about three quarters of the whole aerospace and defense sectors business activity. Cash is king right now throughout the supply chain and companies are struggling to have enough liquidity, according to what several advisors and analysts tell aviation week. while. Liquidity is more of a function of the wider economic downturn inside aerospace. There are even bigger challenges. Where production rates were once being pushed higher now a Williams are slashing them cascading pressure down the supply chain. At the L. A. M. in the top tier level. It has probably never been more important to have insight into your supply chain. Joining me to talk about that need, and what to do about it are John Schmidt? The Global Andy Lead at Accenture and Joyce Klein. Accenture leader in applied intelligence in the North American amd practice John Joyce. Welcome back. Thanks might go good to be back so John let me start with you. It seems obvious that OEM's and tier ones want insight into their suppliers. But while that was always true, I used to be about making sure that there were no bottlenecks that slowed or stop record high production now things chain what of new conditions that demand and customers pay better attention to their supply chain. Might go and in many ways the aerospace industry you know has a clear split between the companies that are working in the Corso world, and does indefens- you in the commercial. As you say, you know the concern used to be, we have a supply constrained world with very predictable demand, right always pushing for more trying take need those increased rates pushed by Boeing and. and Airbus and in the current world that's changed dramatically to being more of a supply volatile with unpredictable demand in the defense and space side of things you know things have largely remained in a predictable demand with an increased supply chain volatility, so by just keep looking at those things, predictability and the the constraint or volatility the spy chain. That's where the primary differences. And Commercial. We know that demand is going to be directly related to the bounce back of commercial air travel and the relative rates airlines choose to bring back stored aircraft versus take more efficient models on order from the OEM's causing more volatility in and demand, variability and defense. It's a bit different again. Demand Israel remained and the supply chains been impacted by Kobe in some cases they're tier one two or three companies, who source both commercial and defense or trying to generate cash to cover expenses and other cases, local Cobra outbreaks, and our common actions are impacting the spires ability to deliver on schedule, known both cases, aerospace and defense companies need. To deal with all totally like never before whether commercial or defense. So Joyce. Last time John and I talked here on Chuck six with. He kind of gave me the peak and do some new technology you all were working on. It's a new capability to peer into the supply chain including using an algorithm approach that allows more predictive insight, potentially even the ability to hotspot. What factories might be in trouble in the future? Can you tell us a little bit about what accenture is working on? And how does this work? Yes, absolutely Michael Accenture? We've been working with our clients in the supply chain area for many years using analytics and machine learning. In fact, if you go back to last year's pariser show in our accenture shall a. we had a digital showcase. Demo that focused on intelligence supply chain, and what this demo is a together machine, learning and artificial intelligence, and we used I at supply chain Europe e data to really understand delivery delays identify missing parts. We also looked at the opportunity for Automation Muller. Doing now is we're bringing together? All Lot of data sets and we're using artificial intelligence to help companies deal with the increase in volatility manage. Manage uncertainty and really get at supplier resiliency. That's really the core of what our solution is all about now so for North, America a and D client what we've done is we've taken and artificial intelligence engine that uses the supplier Jadot and what we're trying to do. We're actually working to predict the number of days late or a particular part, and we're doing that by bringing together a supplier. Number roaches order number eleven worry day in quantity, combination you all that information, Heather actually identify the number of as laid the opulent part is going to be and so by knowing the number of days way them. What were able to do is fight and determine. Do I have enough inventory? As coverage or that? Particular part is ultimately if I Joan I need to make additional decisions around production, and so what? We've been able to do with our solution. Experience up to ten percent improvement apart availability production. And we're also able to change the role of the delivery service analyst. Previous lanes individuals really operating. All here. Allergy by getting parts then wall really. Burning that role inches, someone that now uses ena an ai a better and improve sagem around artists that are going to chase I which parts are actually GonNa come in on Hind. So is a big ship in
miami - Horse Rescued After Getting Trapped On Wooden Bridge In Plantation
"Dr Tiffany. I'm so glad you sent us. Attacks Year a superhero today. Tell everyone what happened yesterday. Got Hi good morning everybody. John Good Morning. So yesterday I got a call Equine Veterinarian in South Florida. And I got a call yesterday about a horse that fell through a bridge in one of the local parks. Yeah, and you know we went obviously and Yeah that the horse was Yeah, he had his his hind leg the bridge and he was Kinda. You know stuck. They're trying to get out so yeah. We call the Fire Department And they came, and they were absolutely amazing the DVD and or sorry Davey Fire Department and they came, and they came with their boom truck, and you know we sedated the Horse, and they lifted them out of the bridge, and we brought him over to the grassy area to recover them and somehow some way. He's doing just fine this morning. I also. Know that you know. Aren't the same as dogs and kittens because horses are big big animals, and they have those long long legs, right Dr Tiffany and so Y- treating a horse is the same as treating a smaller animals, so you got to be really careful right so. I saw the video of you guys leading the horse away, and he was just moving, or she was moving slowly. It was so so beautiful what you guys did. It was great. We love seeing that. Thank you, yeah, yeah! I really wanted to share that you know just with everything. That's so bad. You know everything negative. That's going on I. You know and I'm not usually the one to talk in front of cameras or anything like that, but you know personally. Personally, like I lost my brother at the beginning of Kobe, and now my my great grandmother maybe has a day or two left she one hundred and three. So you know for me. I just I really wanted to share something positive because there's just been so much bad stuff happening around us, so you guys are always so positive so I. I wanted to share that with everybody.

What's Triggering You? Get at What is Keeping You Stuck!
"As many of you know. I'm really big on the awareness. Part of our journey we. I have to have awareness to gain insight by getting out there and getting curious about what's troubling you before we can invoke or practice or he'll through behavior change. Have you ever asked yourself? Why does this bother me so much? That's what we're going to try and answer today. The power of the feeling wheel knowing near feelings I has to come through somebody irritating us or of. Oh King that emotional reaction that feeling many unpleasant ones. Those are the Times that we can get clearer about what were angry about or what. We're sad about what we're happy about. Is it envy? Is it guilt is it shame is it freedom is it curiosity? Is it isolation or do you feel provoked? Do you feel worried. Do you feel inadequate. He get what I'm saying here if you are interested in boosting your emotional intelligence if I have to learn your emotional red flags your emotional triggers in Deir to lead Brunei Brown says wherever perfectionism is driving us. Shame is Riding Shotgun. Many emotional triggers down from perfectionism. We feel ashamed to admit things like anger because we are jealous of somebody who I don't know looks better than us. Got a promotion got married. I don't know it could be a ton of things in your world but unless we're willing to look within to see what is deeper and what is triggering us. We may never get to not feel that feeling asking ourselves those tough questions. What is it about this person or their life or their experiences or opportunities. That makes me so jealous. Angry inferior on comfortable. That's the key word. What makes us so uncomfortable around certain people or certain events or topics or even words triggers are unique to you your individual history your personality your experiences think of triggers as wounds. They often come from past trauma remembered. That trauma doesn't have to leave a scar. It doesn't mean hitting it doesn't mean kicking doesn't mean all those terrible things that we hear about emotionally neglecting. Someone is trauma when Moore triggered. We re experienced that past injury that past trauma it creates a disproportionate reaction tune event or to a word and it doesn't feel good. It feels really uncomfortable. Our primary triggers are inside of us in internal dysfunctional personal belief. That we somehow learned usually in childhood can trigger ourselves into feeling these really nasty uncomfortable feelings ashamed of something. If we don't measure up for instance we can activate our inner critic and boy you know how she he they roll right over you. And what the inner critic does is put everyone else before you shame based beliefs about ourselves can make us feel so vulnerable. But it's the wrong hind vulnerability. It's the triggering kind. We're vulnerable to the attacks that we perceive from words and behaviours of others. We surrender our self esteem when we're criticized even if it's not intentional because of these emotional responses for those of us who are highly sensitive in have built a life of co-dependency. Ooh When someone tells us where too sensitive or even selfish Gut Punch right. These are the words that become internalized and brand us for life these judgments that people put on. Us label us. They're untrue now. Triggers can also be external in some cases. They are imminent signs of danger that preceded in earlier wound. We learned to react to them in order to be safe in order to be loved when they were developed they were meant to be helpful but when they're Habich Uli automatically to different situations as we develop in. Grow our reactions become dysfunctional. They don't work anymore. This is when we get uncomfortable when we overreact. And we know were overreacting. We believe that our perceptions are accurate because were reminded of a circumstance of a moment or many moments important pivotal branding moments in our lives. And in some cases these overreactions are learned behavior that were modeled by a parent or a loved one. Someone who really influenced our daily lives
Wearables as Early Detection Health Systems
"And so you know to frame this discussion Obviously with the whole pandemic going on right now Were in the midst of I. Think a whole lot of different trends that are being accelerated in. You know for me personally. I've been writing. Blogging about biometric sensors. And the idea of wearables serving the role of preventative health tools really since the onset of future in so now it's becoming clear as ever that there's this is a really important role particularly during pandemics in health crisis that I think these body weren't computers can play and so I think to kick things off I WanNa to go to you Ryan about just the idea of the different types of metrics that sensors like the ones that Alan cell produces can capture I would love to hear from you know particularly around metrics respiration rate but oxidation You know these different metrics that on the surface. You hear them okay. These you know. A body worn sensor can now capture a respiration rate. What does that actually mean and input it? In the context of why that would be an important metric to know Particularly with you know something that is a respiratory illness like Ovid In how we might be able to be a little bit more proactive with our approach. Here you know in terms of understanding what's actually going on with our bodies and maybe using these tools as part of a early diagnostic system in in just a better way to diagnose and detect anomalies in the data that there might be something going on even before you might be showing symptoms so Ryan. Why don't you start with maybe just a a an overview of some of these different metrics? How we've even gotten to the point to be able to capture these and then what we can glean from those types of metrics. It's a really interesting topic because the One of the silver linings if you will in this In this pandemic or and now is really highlighting the capability the current capabilities of existing Wearable sensor technology that in many cases has been around for years if not long if not decades or longer in the case of something like the pg sensor technology that we make that has been around and finger clips and your lobe clips that measure vital hind in hospitals and healthcare facilities for for decades Those things so the ability to measure things like heart rate and heart rate variability and bought oxygenation in wearable devices has been around for decades. What what this current environment is is really putting focus and and really highlighting is the capabilities of those devices and And also the the ability and the importance of Wanda to data Capture across those different metrics. So it's one thing to to look at someone's heart rate or let's say their body temperature or their respiration rate at a given point in time but what Where these are really adding additional value? And that's really getting highlighted in. This environment is understanding at an individual level. What that data looks like over time. And in a longitudinal sense where you can get an individual baseline on a person and understand how they're different Let's say they're different resting heart rate or heart rate variability changes in an individual Those may be different between Me and you an Andy and Chris All all of us are going to have different baselines at an individual level but the ability to see. Not just what what's going on when someone goes to visit a doctor or in this case where we are discouraged from going into into hospitals and healthcare facilities what that looks like a longitudinal basis for an individual and that gives In many cases much better insights into how individual is responding to whatever. They're whatever they're currently doing or whatever their current environment Maybe doing to them so That gives unique insights and the capability has been there for many years. What this current environment is really putting a highlight on is what are the what those capabilities and mean on longitudinal basis and also in a in a remote monitoring scenario where an individual doesn't have to come into A hospital or a health care facility to see to see a healthcare provider. That can all be done remotely today and we're really seeing The acceleration of telemedicine telehealth and the And the use of wearable sensor data in those contexts to be able to get that data and and I see how an individual's baseline is changing over time. Yeah no I think that makes a Lotta sense and Chris I want to go to you. Now you know. Kinda going off of what Ryan just described with how we can capture all this information before recording. You had mentioned a study that you had just conducted with Va. That I would love for you to expand upon a little bit here and share with the audience About what we can then actually gleaned from this information and in how you worked with. Va To make some pretty meaningful insights based on this type of information that were now being able to gather from these different sensors so you're just to build them what Ryan sharing these. The sensors themselves have indeed been around for for decades the EKG writer DC. G HAS BEEN AROUND FOR I think. Essentially now And while traditionally these types of sensors have been used in impatient environment. Where you have somebody who's lying in a hospital bed where you know it does it does make sense to use something like resting heart rate When you introduce these types of technologies in the real world where people are moving around Going to the mailbox or walking upstairs. They're they're they're sleeping they're awake. How do you capture these? These data sets in that environment in a way that you can actually make sense of what's going on. So the big leap is in the artificial intelligence that the neural nets and machine learning that we can now apply to these data streams to do what Ryan ascribed Annette is build a personalized baseline for an individual from which then you can detect very subtle anomalies in so If his IQ our first FDA clearance was in an algorithm that did exactly that and that was invalidated in this. This va sponsor. Study that you just referenced. In so with that Algorithm. What we're doing is a platform is ingested continuous vital signs specifically cartwright respiration rate in activity. And doing that from a wearable biosensor and it builds a personalized model of their cardiopulmonary physiology as relationship between these different vital signs to detect subtle changes that are are indicative of compensatory behavior within their physiology that can be predictive of
Returning to the Workplace AFTER Quitting Your Job
"I'm curious similar Graca. I live in New York City. I was featured on episode twenty one and my side. How Saul is Rosa Gold? Which is a multichannel ECOMMERCE BUSINESS? That sells personalised and monogrammed accessories and the biggest item. That we sold were monogrammed. Lincoln scarves the way that I started this business. It was really organic. I was working as a television producer in a role that wasn't as creative as I had hoped it would be so I think in my spare time. I felt like in creative so I started to make things with my hands and my my natural habitat in new. Creativity is was always sewing making apparel and clothing and accessories. That's what I had always done when I was a kid for fun so I started doing that again. I just needed to inject some more creativity into my life and I created this monogram scarf for myself and I wore it and all my friends were asking for one so I was like maybe this is something that people want and at the time at sea was kind of on the newer side and it was only for handmade items so I put this one style of scarf on se. This was my first foray into commerce and it sold like I was selling stop. I wasn't telling Hind but people were buying these monogram scarves for me so it clued me into the fact. I L like people want this and it's something that you know. They're willing to pay money for and I was getting good reviews. Those like great. They like it and kind of expanded from there in a way that I never intended to start a business. I did it for creativity. I did it as a hobby Once I put everything on ads e e commerce became very really fascinating to me. How it works how you can get ideas from customers how you can try new things with like a very low fall on your face rate like you can try something out. It doesn't work. You can change direction and it's not that big of a deal so yeah it was berry not normal. In the sense I started with the thought of Business. I just wanted to be creative again. And then from vast from the business and what I realized in that process was I really enjoyed thinking about other types of businesses how to make them grow and while that happened the passion for my business or the joy that I was that I used to get for my business. I it just became really Adult doubt a little bit. I was working a lot by myself. I felt a little bit isolated so kind of all in that timeframe I realized that I really now am fascinated by ECOMMERCE and every day. There's something new. There's a new way to get stuff that you need deliver greater house and bought on the Internet so I sort of decided that using all of what I learned from starting my own business and running it for a few years and then now helping other commerce business owners. I wanted to take all of that and land myself a role so go back to her. Which is the emphasis of what many people start out when they start when they start side hassle to but I decided I want to wanted to go back into the workplace at a company. I was really excited about working out with people that was really excited. Were with and to work on an ECOMMERCE Seymour. I felt like I was part of something in. We were really growing it. An exciting things were happening there. So that's what I did. I now work at a health and wellness. Start Up New York City. I love it. It was for me the best decision. I get to spend my days with the smartest people out there. I'm challenged every day. I get to work on a team again and that is really fulfilling and rewarding to me to work collectively with other people to accomplish something so my side. Hustle. Rosa Gold is still operating. One of the challenges was when I was going to go back to work a nine to five. I knew I did not want to just shut down my side hustle. It has brought so much into my life that that would be a disservice to me for many reasons. I had made friends through it There are so many reasons why it was so great for me to keep that side-hustle running the biggest challenge right now is figuring out how to transition business And continually come up with new ways to allow it to rise on removing me from a little bit like the day to day operations. I still am involved but I just needed to not be the line running day-to-day thank you so much. I really appreciate those updates. I know our listeners. Do as well. I always like hearing from people who find different approaches or creative approaches who are pursuing kind of hybrid model. We have a lot of listeners out there. Who are you know aside hustling while? They're working their day job than they go all in or maybe they go half time. Maybe they're focusing on parenting for awhile. But then they're also trying to build an income source. Maybe eventually go back to the workplace. You know everybody's navigating these things differently like we're all on a journey right so I think the key point is you have to find what works for you like you've got to find the thing that works for you at this time at this season in your life recognize that it might not be the same thing that other people are doing recognize that it might not be the same thing you did last year. It might not be what you ended up doing a year from now. And just having that flexibility adaptability really is a key to success or at least a key to wellness. People often feel pressured to do things a certain way. And one of my favorite things with this podcast. Twelve hundred episodes and counting Is showing that there are a lot of ways? You don't have to live your life the way others expect which is kind of my life. Mantra what I've been teaching in different ways for ten years more than ten years now at this point so it's just fun to highlight different examples. Thanks again to Kirsten for bringing a new one
Great Comet of 1861 discovered - May 13, 1861
"Was made thirteenth eighteen. Sixty one Australian amateur astronomer. John Tebbit Observed Great Comet of Eighteen. Sixty line the comment was visible to the naked eye for about three months and it was visible through telescopes until eighteen. Sixty two John. It was born in in Windsor New South Wales and his father was a farmer. He developed an interest in astronomy early on thanks to conversations with his tutor at work and articles that he read by Astronomer John Russell Hind in eighteen fifty. Three Tebbit bought Marine sextant. He also had a clock with a seconds pendulum that regulated by making celestial observations and he had a small telescope over the next few years he acquired more instruments this first astronomical publication in the Sydney Morning Herald in eighteen fifty four when comments appeared. Tebbit would calculate their orbit. A comment isn't icy body in space that releases gas as it passes near the son in eighteen fifty eight. He observed Donizetti's comment in Australian Sky Timid also observed phenomena like meteors planets and variable stars between eighteen fifty four and eighteen sixty two. He published thirty four pieces in the Herald eighteen. Sixty the government astronomer William Scott and bite it Tebbit to work at the Sydney Observatory Turned down the request on May thirteenth eighteen. Sixty one tebbit was thirteen. The skies for comets. There is marine telescope. He saw a nebulous. Object Mir a star in the constellation a readiness. He decided to keep observing object. Tubby sent a letter to the Sydney Morning Herald announcing his discovery of the great comet of eighteen sixty one and it was published in the paper on May twenty fifth his twenty seventh birthday in it. He said the following while engaged. In examining the heavens with a small telescope. On the evening of Monday the thirteenth instant nebulous star of about the fifth magnitude in the Constellation. Our readiness attracted my attention. It was then a distant a few minutes of a decree from thirteen sixteen of the catalog. A star of the sixth magnitude. Finding there was no nebulous star in the catalog in the same position. I immediately conjectured. It must be comet. He went on to say that he realized the comet had moved half decree and that he had told William Scott about his observation announcement incited a considerable amount of public excitement and responses. Tebbit continued making observations on the comic for weeks. The comet became visible in the Northern Hemisphere. In late June earth passed through the comments tail causing meteor showers. It remained visible to the I for around three months but it stayed visible through a telescope for several more months. The comment is formally designated C eighteen. Sixty one J one and hundred sixty one to the term. Great Comet isn't an official designation but it typically describes comment that is extremely bright as most comments are not visible to the naked eye. And even when they are they're often fuzzy fate tebbit built his own small observatory and continue to publish his observations. The Great Comet is expected to return and the twenty third century
Is the Tasmanian Tiger Really Extinct?
"You've no doubt heard of the Tasmanian Devil or seen an animated version the whirling dervish in looney tunes cartoons. But what about the Tasmanian Tiger? It's actually not even a tiger at all instead a marsupial known as the Thilo seen and it's thought to have gone extinct almost one hundred years ago but did it really. While many experts believed the last known thylacine died at. Australia's Hobart Zoo in nineteen thirty. Six others ardently claimed that the animals still exists because they've spotted one or more in the wild. We spoke by email with Kathryn medlock. Honorary Curator of vertebrate zoology the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. She said the international Australian and state definition of an extinct species is that there has been no reliable evidence of the species for fifty years by this definition. They are officially extinct species although designated as officially extinct. It's difficult to prove that something is not there as opposed to proving it is. There are many cases of species being rediscovered. Many years after supposed- extinction we also spoke by email with Rick Schwartz an animal ambassador for California's San Diego Zoo. He explained that quote since the Nineteen Thirties. There have been a few claims Tasmanian. Tigers have been seen for brief moments in the wild however no substantial evidence has proven they exist at this time we also spoke by email with Neil waters of the thylacine awareness group of Australia. Who started disagrees a quote? Do I think the animals extinct? No because I've seen too and been coughed slash barked at by one in South Australia. In two thousand eighteen. There have been more than seven thousand documented sightings of Silas scenes or animals that appear to be Thilo scenes but the majority of those sightings on Mainland Australia. According to the scientific formula applied to mammals though it is extinct and has been since nineteen thirty six for fifty years. The animal was considered rare and endangered. This fact inconveniently keeps the animal as a recent extinction rather than an ancient one. We should lose hope over and forget about. Let's step back a bit. What exactly is Tasmanian. Tiger? Schwartz explained that it's not a big cat at all. He said the name. Tiger most likely was given to the animal by the European settlers due to the light stripes that went from the spine down each side on the hind end of the animal. Most people agree that the Tasmanian Tiger looks like a medium sized short haired dog with subtle stripes on hindquarters and the base of its tail. Tail was thick and muscular at the base. More like a kangaroo's tail than a dog's tail colorations were described as light brown and Yellow Brown with Darker Brown stripes. These animals weighed about forty five to seventy pounds. That's twenty to thirty kilos with a body length of forty to fifty inches or one hundred to one hundred and twenty five centimeters with that tail. Adding another twenty to twenty five inches or fifty to sixty centimeters most stood about two feet tall or two thirds of a meter at the shoulder. Schwartz said in our modern times we usually think of marsupials and Kangaroos however the Tasmanian Tiger had a number of unique characteristics being dog like medium sized carnivore. That's also Marsupial it. Size and features were more similar to that of a small wolf or large Fox. Combine that with the striped pattern on the hind end and thick muscular tail. Similar toy kangaroo. You've got a pretty unique animal and water said when you had a close look at the prince we find. You will see time and time again. The broad S- play of the toes and the Claude drag impressions from the massive fixed clause on the animals four feet. The reason they're split wide and not like a dog is because they don't have webbing between their toes their front feet also still acts similar to hands as they can both hop like a kangaroo or run on all fours as a result many of the prince appear that the front feet are literally grabbing the ground as they dig it on curves or high speed when pursuing prey when Europeans first colonized Australia. The Tasmanian Tiger was rarely seen the animals started to become increasingly blamed for tax on cheap however so private companies and the Tasmanian government attempted to curb population by establishing bounties exchange for dead violence scenes adding to their eventual extinction was the sad fact that Australia's colonisation eroded the thylacines habitat by the nineteen twenty s sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger in the wild became extremely rare and in nineteen thirty. A farmer shot and killed the second. To last known wild Tasmanian Tiger the final by Lesean was captured in the Florentine Valley in Nineteen thirty three and transferred to the Hobart Zoo on September seventh. Nineteen thirty six. The animal known as Benjamin died in captivity black and white footage recorded in nineteen thirty three would become historically significant as images of the final scene in nineteen thirty seven the Tasmanian animals and birds protection board a later to become the national park. Service launched a series to determine where thylacines still might be found. Medlock said unfortunately living animal was not discovered. The final search in the series was into the chain river area in Western. Tasmania on the search. Sometimes seen footprints were discovered and creek bed. The original plaster casts of these prints are lodged in the Tasmanian Museum. The Tasmanian Museum doesn't receive citing reports. And we don't have the expertise to assess them. This is done by the Department of Primary Industries Water and environment they continue to record reported sightings and take them seriously often however sightings films and photographs are released to the media through the people who are reporting them rather than a government body over the years. There have been several instances photographs and films purported to be thylacines in the wild but none have been verified as genuine evidence of an animal waters however contends that there have been dozens of credible sightings of Thilo scenes. He said actually hundreds of them too many to name one in particular was a bus load of tourists in Western Australia. Back in the nineteen eighties. Who All saw the animal at close range in broad daylight whilst on a wildflower tour the fact that we find headless Kangaroos. All over. His failure is a key piece of physical evidence that these animals still persist. But nobody to know about it. Because it's always blamed on either hunters or Satanists by. Ill informed people who don't understand how these animals feed waters has been working tirelessly to raise public awareness of this animals continued existence for the past five years meeting dozens of witnesses and collecting thousands of statements regarding sightings of this animal in. Tasmania and across mainland Australia. His work appears in the two thousand seventeen documentary living the thylacine dream which follows waters travels throughout mainland Australia. Collect evidence of predation as well as stories of sightings from witnesses who are adamant seen the thile seen both recently and historically
The Cities Are Dying
"Our L. Ryan? We're GONNA start with you because on Sunday or Vo's the poor state of Mississippi dealt with tornadoes that ravaged the state eleven people died as a result on top of having to deal with the pandemic so in terms of covert nineteen while the number of reported cases in Mississippi is lower than in places like New York and Michigan for example Detroit. It's still impacting communities of color very intensely. Yeah that's correct Maria And so even though. The state of Mississippi has relatively fewer cases in places like New York. We report last week that Mississippi actually has the highest rate of hospitalizations in the country. A lot of our cases Jackson of course in Hinds County is the epicenter. But you know we're seeing a lot of cases in places like the Mississippi Delta which are majority black and you know the impacts here are the same as we're seeing in places like Chicago Milwaukee where even though African Americans are not the majority of the overall population the majority of both cody cases and deaths are black so mississippi fifty six percent of all the the the cove in nineteen cases have been African Americans and in seventy two percent of all of all debts in so compounded on top of that Maria you talked about the tornadoes that we just experienced over the weekend. So you know we were telling people shelter at home and now people You know people have been displaced from their shelters and we're going to have to figure out like where do we actually house people? Actually the safety protocols that we would normally go through in a disaster like this. They won't be able to to happen as quickly. Because of the the cove protocols and so even our our overall numbers are low. I mean we're we're definitely seeing a disproportionate impact on places like Mississippi to have large black populations and communities with high concentrations of poverty. Thanks for that Ryan and then Detroit a city where we've talked about this in the thick we we had. Stephen Live a city where systemic racism and poverty. They have a long history. The pandemic has really taken a toll. Michigan as of now has the third most cases in the country and Detroit as one of the blackest and most segregated cities in the country is the epicenter of Michigan. Forty percent of the deaths have been black people. Jeez the only make up fourteen percent of the state's population. This is all according to the Michigan Disease Surveillance System and vital records. But then it's even more severe in Detroit Stephen. Right because the black population is seventy seven percent of Cova nineteen fatalities so steven. What's going on in Detroit and across your state? Yeah I mean for starters. It is just so sad. You're right now. It's really hard. I think to convey the depth of that emotion without without you being here to kind of feel it and see it. The city is is suffering is feels like the city is dying in in some very real ways because of the extent to which this is affecting us and of course. There are the familiar dynamics of systemic racism and systemic poverty. That have made it a lot easier for something like corona virus to affect people in our city very differently one of the most glaring examples I think is the the policy of water shut offs which yeah one of the worst ideas we've ever had here in the city of Detroit as a way to increase revenues to the water department. A few years ago they started again shutting off water to people who don't pay which means that a lot of people who don't have the ability to pay don't have freshwater in their houses and of course because poverty affects African Americans in a more profound way than it does other populations and because the city is so heavily African American. That means you have a lot of black people. Poor black people who didn't have access to water when this started. I think about what we're telling people you need to do to not get the corona virus. Wash your hands wash your hands. Wash your hands. Well if you don't have freshwater. Yep there's really no way to do that I could go on and on and on other examples of things that affect black people more right at make something like this more dangerous and it just it caught us. Flat-footed we we. We were not because of the way that we've dealt with these problems for our community for such a long time. We were not in a position to be able to toward this off to make sure that that a lot of people didn't get it. Also think of the ways in which poor people are not able to isolate this idea. Stay away from everybody. Don't go to the store. Don't go visit people at that. Looks really different when you are trying to to get by day to day and there are a Lotta people in this city who are and they have to do things they have to. They have to earn money. You or they have to go buy things at the store and they can you know. I go grocery shopping right now. I shopped for two or three weeks. Yeah not everybody's able to do that and an right so you just have of this mixture of of things that have made this wicked for Detroit. Yeah Stephen you say this is kind of revealing the ways in which we've dealt with these things in the past and then I think of my time in Detroit like deep in Detroit and I'm like the thing is is that it wasn't being dealt with before and what I mean it is that I mean abandoned communities poor communities where the poverty is staring you right in the face and there's the whole issue of you know if you don't see it it's not
