I was talking with the guys about this in someone who said this is already. It's already open like their areas. Yeah yeah of bloggers that we know andy from any travel blog is already. They're taking pictures of the volcanic eruption. Yeah which i mean. It's fascinating because they've they've said it wasn't gonna happen till the twenty six. I believe of this this month. so i guess they're just like you know whatever I to me. It raises some interesting questions about one. What's it take to get in. I think posted. He just used his quarantine card which doesn't match up with like saint. Hard of sight says vaccine card Which doesn't match up with what the government website says. the website is basically the who yellowcard From dr That doesn't sound like that's the case And i wonder how quickly it can become inundated. It's really hard to get there right now from the united states. Yes no one's flying nonstop from the us An icelandair isn't starting up flights from most of their west coast or central us destinations until the summer. So everything's the europe. So i don't know how andy got there but I i would be fascinated. I'm gonna be now to yeah. I wonder how we get there. I mean but don't forget. The wizz air flight landed as that volcanoes. Erupting so know. There's definitely options. What's the other thing too. Now there's a volcano and it's causing headaches for flights departing in writing and it looked. I mean you know. I heard that there was an option. And i saw some of the pictures i wouldn't say it's like massive. Mount edna style. Just shepherd seems pretty sizable. I do wonder if we're going to have some of the issues that we had too many years ago with. Obviously that's a fairly big chunk of the airspace to get from the us europe. I guess guess so few flights right now. Maybe it's not as big an issue to reroute folks. I was. I was secretly hoping we're gonna try to pronounce that old volcano on the show. No no no no no no remember. This is a scripted show. Oh wait yeah. I mean i think you know right now. It seems like it's a pretty tame volcano and so i know there's been some ash cloud kind of re routes around that southern parts of iceland. Because it's really close to reykjavik is where the volcano and so i know there's been some rewrites but i haven't seen anything major stopping traffic going to europe. So which is which is good.

Meet The 'Glacier Mice'

"So now. You told us that tim. Bartholomeusz was surprised that he came across the glacial moss balls but other researchers had encountered them before right yes. They're rare. I mean they don't grow in just any glacier that seems like conditions have to be just right but researchers have spotted them for decades and they've seen them in several places like in alaska. Iceland spelled barred south america while and you know people who see them are generally pretty fond of them. I mean in the nineteen fifties and icelandic researcher described them in the journal of glaciology and he called them. Yoke lamis or glacier mice. I love that glacier mice. Okay so what do we know about these little fuzz. Balls as you're going there's limited research but we do know they can be composed of different moss species so researchers think they form around you know like a little bit of rock or a clump of dust and they just grow up to be pretty big like six inches across or something. And here's the cool thing these moss balls move around and it turns out they move in a coordinated way almost like a herd. Okay that's amazing. Let's let's take the first part. Because when i think of moss i don't think of movement you know it's pretty static i know. But researchers have speculated in the past that they must be moving because otherwise the bottom of the moss ball would be dead. It wouldn't have living moss but if you pick one up off the glacier and you turn it over and look you can see. There's actually green living moss all around the ball moving around rolling in some way.

Choosing the right course for you

"At the moment i have a five year old and if he asked him what he wants to do he we'll tell you that he wants to be a fine and a builder and he's having trouble understanding that you could probably do both of those at the same time but when you were five years old what did you want be when you grow up excellent question. I think was a handful of different things that i was interested in very very different to what i've decided on his show. Yeah i think at one point. I wanted to be an architect. I'm very into my crafts and getting a bit creative so that was one of the options. My mom was a hairdresser as well. So that was another thing that i wanted to pursue. Think i still would like to do that on the side verb. If i'm really that's yeah yeah. It's changed a lot over the years. Pabst eating as well which yeah rain. Good to have a chat to you back in the day. That's okay. we can still chat whenever you want. It's interesting isn't it like when when kids a little. They obviously only have a small experience of what jobs are out there. And like you said you know your mom was a hairdresser off and not taking another one. That's what i wanted to be. When i was five and then went away from it and then came back to it so just interesting as we get older and we exposed to more different careers and things like that that we get some different understanding about what we might live today. So let's let's forward from there and go to yet ten so i'd like to find out. What sort of student were you when you were india. Ten and starting to think about vca and what subjects you liked to do. So y- attend. May was i think i was about to move schools so i was very studies focused and think i'm a little bit. I say day with how. I like my notes and that sort of thing is very much focused. Yeah my schooling. Liked it a sport as well. So that's what. I was a good outlet as well to keep me bit balanced. Yeah it is good to have that that balance particularly i reckon going into. Aca find lots of students decide at that point that they're to create spot and it makes me really sad because i think that it's it's such a good outlet win. You actually really hot to go out. And you have iran or place a bowl. Whatever it is that you do. Did you find as you were going through. Definitely something that practical israel. I think we've oh sort of come to realize that especially with lockdown recently. How important it is to get outside and get some sunshine and well to break up the day. Yeah absolutely so. What subjects did you end up choosing. Vca yes say nba say. I did maths methods. I did. I thought i was going to be doing special because i did love maths but didn't end up doing that. I did chemistry biology english and french. Actually okay great. Yeah and french's that's an iceland to have in there is all. I actually did quite similar subjects that deep german instead. And i find that people often he the combination and think. It's a bit weird. But i really loved having like that. Language was just different to the math and sciences and Did you have that with french. Slow i think science. I think after doing it for the four years. It was sort of like. Why wouldn't i continue on. And i think it really progresses in basie a and that's when it can really be used become useful when you decide to travel later on yet awesome. Sorry at that point in time when you were choosing your subjects. Did you notice or like way you are now. Did you have an idea of what you would like to do when you school. So just a heads up as you would have head from kinsey tribe side to do medicine. I think i had thought about it at that point so it was in the back of my mind but i don't think i was one hundred percent that that was what i wanted to write. I think I knew that. I loved maths. I love science so that was mainly my goal is at that point just to continue on with that and sort of kepa arpan to decide a bit later on yet. And that's that makes sense as well like you say your if that's what your strengths lie. Sorta the advice that i try and give students. If you follow your strengths and interests you'll end up being able to do courses that you want to if you not into maths and things like that thing there's no point following them too much because the courses that you wanna do require it and vice versa or if you do really like it then you should do it because you'll end up using it later on. Sorry so we face the you're doing those subjects. How one's vca did you. Did you go through it really easily. Did you have some ups and downs. What were the those two years. However they view i think yes so basically for me was a little bit challenging actually mainly at the beginning i had just moved schools. That the static year eleven. Sorry i grew up in Ever of school and it was very much focused on sporting whereas when i moved to the suburbs it was more academics. I think goes a big wakeup coal. To say i guess the competition as a whole and with basie a for instance. I had to repeat my math methods. They hit advised me like had a discussion with me that i think that was the best sort of route for me to go down and i think hearing. It's you feel like that's horrible. What do you mean. I have to repeat it like thinking that i was completely fine before that with mass and something that i had always been i guess gifted or was my strength so i think that was a really good learning experience to say that while it was hot to hear. It was the best thing that i had done. Oh that i could be in terms of preppy maitha really optimizing my busy in the following year and year twelve. It is really good as well at the school recognized that and and gave you. That feedback allows you to do that. Really early on said he just moved to the school so for them to make that call really early to make sure that you were really well prepared but as you say it's not it's not easy to hear that kind of thing and i imagined as a student at the time that was quite difficult also really glad you mentioned it because i know that i say lots of students asking about what sort of what sort of percentage they need on saxon things throughout the year and what i heart. People will understand by the example that you've given is that different. Schools have different standards of assessment within the school. And that's why say works the way. It does with the focused more on the exams because they're external and in this the sort of scaling of the subjects or the the study scores within the schools to make things more. Even so yeah. It's good that you highlighted that that can be different at different schools. It's very interesting interesting experience. I think yeah and a unique experience lot substitutes wouldn't wouldn't get that they wouldn't understand the difference because you most units are at one school move. Aca so yeah. It's an interesting insight that you had okay. So what tepes would you have the current students. What are some things that you did in year. Twelve or that you wish you had done any twelve to make life easier. Sorry i think something that. I still try to constantly. My studies is goal setting. I think that is sorry. Bake i think especially students that would have just gone through lockdown realizing how day can poss- without getting a whole lot done so just having go set in the morning to take off and yeah just feels good. You can take them off and you can say that you've been productive throughout the day as well while not not being hot on your south on those days where you had a good day and yet just waking up the next day saying how can i be better. Had i do better than the day before and now the thing is i think yes. Sorry to interrupt. But i think that is so important because i think it's really easy to think about all the stuff that you didn't do and you didn't get done whereas economically somewhat. He did get done. And then as you say if you do have an off day what can get done the next day

Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears

"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical

You can get there in the space got in three days, but a Mars is a six month trip one way, and you can't turn around and come back for another year and a half. And there is no shortcut. Then get down to the surface of Mars tastes a lot more effort because the gravitational field so much bigger than that. NASA calls this the seven minutes of terror to give back off Mars takes so much bigger rocket, not only that a nice warm day on Mars.

"You're listening to comedy central. The US is ranked forty ninth in the world when it comes to gender following forty nine. How did America get so far behind? We have Oprah the global gender gap report measures the disparity between men and women in terms of education, health, economic participation and political empowerment, and we can't be ranked this low again of America wants to catch up with the rest of the world. We're going to have to start coughing off some of their homework. So I said goodbye to my family and headed out to explore some of the countries who are getting gender equality rights. It wouldn't be easy. But like my grandma always said when times get tossed throw on some lipstick and get to work, my first, stop number one on the global gender gap of fort Iceland. It's a vast barren tundra. The edge of the world. There are glaciers waterfalls even the ground husky. With the total population of just over three hundred thousand there are happy people one with nature so friendly. Oh, it's okay. I'm an American. They've lead the world in quality nine years straight. But things weren't always so evil here. Iceland was once his male dominated at the White House cabinet. But then in nineteen seventy five almost every woman in Iceland went on strike, both at home and in the workplace and the entire country shutdown, according to former presidential candidate hollow Thomas daughter.

Women did paid up to twenty percents less for doing that same job as men to for all women, be average gap in America's around twenty cents on the dollar. And when you break it down further by race and ethnicity it gets even wider, but Iceland is moving fast to eliminate there. We have legislation that requires every employer with twenty-five employees or more Tuesday transparent about their pay practices, and they have to show proof that they're not discriminating against women.

"It's hard to see I've other topics. I think. Yeah. And I said, it's really it's really quite complex, and there are multiple efforts to create sustainable palm oil, which also have environmental impacts critics say that like, oh, yes, Pamela is obviously very bad his uses increasing of ways we could use this. We could maybe think about how we use it. And how their other things that we could decrease. Instead, maybe doesn't need to be hyped up in this way. It does goodness early. So I mean, I SLA nd has said it stopped stocking palm oil products if it's managed to do it. I mean, is that something that also markets could do is that something that we as consumers could easily do potentially. I think is one of these issues is. Very hard. Maybe do in practice because even though Iceland says this a lot of its products is very same very similar with other supermarkets products produced by third party manufacturers different suppliers. Can you really can control an entire supply chain when you don't really know everything about it? I think is so hard to actually really saw coordinate and organize and especially to have oversight factories in different areas of the world and. Especially when they don't belong to you. And they belong to third party companies just creating products. Products that go into. The one I agree. I think it sets forth like autumn because it's like saying because they control everything anyone does what's the point of making the big issue. I think that actually rather than ice during it. It's actually raising awareness issue is making people wear it for me. We've been hearing about promo for a little while actually. But. Just shifting like I stopped using palm oil peanut Ernst died paying like slightly more for being a bird because it doesn't have palm oil. So I feel actually although is really complicated. And obviously, there's supply chain issues. The only way you can actually start even shifting the dial on this awareness up and making a move. So I kind of think option do they have. Yeah. For me. It's a bit of the whole thing is a bit of a stunt and ice maybe hasn't gone about in the best way because they've not manipulated people. But I would say the whole saying it was banned and explicitly using the world band was done to get this message out there to a much wider audience, which probably a lot of people have seen. This don't necessarily understand some of the complexities around the use of political advertising, and the fact that you've never gonna get onto TV, but also humans of pretty terrible and lifeforce of we only change in like small steps and without change being forced upon us. So I'd say the for raising awareness of an issue and maybe making some people to make. A small chips that change because they saw this cute a rang atone that was losing its home is probably a good thing off in the issue. Isn't it? It's not palm. What about things we don't agree? But even if it's not university about being there's a lot of things done better. It's was it worth Iceland, essentially, kind of parenting little bit of fake news. And twisting narrative to do that does that do damage in the long run for how we trust brands and how we trust environmental issues. Nothing for me. That's the key. And I feel a little bit like can use a different word of the bangles, and they're slightly better way kind of framing this the locked. Yeah. I know I think it's gone up. I wonder if maybe does damage people's reputations of people's force around the environmental movement in the long run. We actually suck. I didn't think I mean, I think personally it's quite good for a brand with Tippett's name on on the line until like put itself out there in support of some kind of positive issue, regardless what the issue is to stand up for something that they believe in whether it's to try and attract Mobutu this. Oh, not at least it's having a positive impact. And they could be using that that voice that they have out there for much more blatant Pearston. So all worth things is okay to misrepresent the truth to do that. I think what you said. I think the result is good that book was the way. They did it right? It's okay to essentially lie to do that. I mean, it wasn't like a huge line..
