"indian ocean" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"In London The boat has landed The ship chartered by the government of Mauritius has arrived today in the disputed chagos archipelago in the Indian Ocean It's for each comes after the UN highest court ruled that Britain's occupation of the island is illegal Mauritius accused Britain of crimes against humanity But Britain has refused to hand control to Mauritius to reverse its move in 1972 to force some 2000 people off their island Part of what became the newly named British Indian Ocean territories were secretly handed over to the U.S. for use as a military base Her Africa correspondent Andrew Harding traveled with the group of chego islanders on their four day boat journey after a lifetime of yearning to go home I asked him what it was like when they finally reached the archipelago It was a mixture I think an awful lot of joy from the 5 chagossians who came ashore on this beautiful tropical beach They dropped to their knees some of them they kissed the sand they were weeping And later as they went in land and inspected the kind of overgrown ruins of their church of the buildings that have laid here rotting in the tropical heat for 50 years More different emotions came up A lot of anger here particularly from Olivier Blanco the man who spent so many years fighting in British courts for his right to return to live permanently on the place of his birth He was condemning the British government as racist saying they would never have done this if we were white blue eyed people like in the Falklands that the population islands which of course was forcibly removed 50 years ago Must be allowed to resettle here But everyone I think seeing this moment as potentially a game changer of course this is the first time the mauritian government in all its years of independence has ever dared to send its own boats to this archipelago And it's done so because it feels world opinion and international law is turning in its favor that they point out just 5 countries supported Britain in its last votes at the UN General Assembly the International Court of Justice has said stand the island's over as part of your decolonization Just watching now the jagos is walking past me here along the shore there about to head back to the boat but they've been erecting with mauritian government officials a flagpole that they're going to run up the mauritian flag on in the coming days as a real show of defiance against Britain But what else beside from hoisting a flag What else are they planning today Is it all mere mostly symbolic as important as that is It is symbolic They've been clearing out for instance the overgrown palms and the coconuts that litter the floor of their church They're planning to go along to the cemetery to do the same on the graves of their ancestors And they're also going to another island Salomon in the coming days To do something similar there But this is the logistics of this with the tides and so on pretty complicated So they don't have that much time on each island And what's your sense Andrew I mean this court case the United Nations decision is historic the boat itself that you the journey you made is as well Do you think that the tides could really be shifting It certainly looks that way Yes And I think this gamble if you like this rather provocative move by the mauritian government having informed Britain but having definitively not asks the permission Is a gamble diplomatically but it is hard to imagine that with world opinion and international law shifting so firmly against Britain that they're going to be able to cling on to this archipelago for too many more years And that was Andrew Harding reporting from the chagos archipelago.

The Complicated History of The Rhine

"Our hearts are heavy. Knowing that the romantic views of castles and vineyards and germany's rhine river valley are overshadowed by the recent loss of life and flooding devastation. In germany and the low countries just downstream. From where we're talking about the following interview with tour guides tabby and ruger and nico fava real was recorded last year hot drinks so being. Give us a feeling for the medieval ryan which really created the ryan. We see today as tourists the most important trading river the with the romans already the problems with the rhyme began. It was widely considered that east of the rhine burien live. West of the rhine was civilization. And that's i went all the way through into modern history. France of course try to make for centuries the ryan its eastern border. The germans fought back and eventually of course that ended in one thousand nine hundred eighty. It's interesting when you think about it. That the ryan would have been a huge border culturally between the romans and the barbarians and from a french point of view between the french and the germans. Yeah so when you have a border like that nickel in in europe generally what happens it's Where wars having between. France and germany divorce happen then the ryan either stopped the wars or a lot of areas on the border especially in the french part of the border for instance. The elvas as region has been taken by germany. Many many times am so. It's a war zone between countries. So also been the war zone between religions catholics. Protestants fought over as yes in that area today. Even i mean today. It's kind of the border between catholic and protestant europe. Yes you could say that. Yeah north of the ryan is definitely more protestant. Now when you have the in the middle ages there was not a lot of Paved roads there is not a love law and order. If you wanted to get your goods to the market going down. The river was was one safer way to do it. I suppose it was a safe way. But you have to be careful of something. called robber. Barons who stopped ships along their journey but big chains along or across the rhine made the ship. Stop in and steal everything or steal everything in well amount of duties to say you've gotta pay ten percent of what's on your boat to continue down. Yeah i've heard this word robber. Baron castle so maybe the rhine river fabulous is sort of the quintessential example of a robber. Baron castle zone robot. Baron is a term in particular rob nights for a particular phase during the holy roman empire. Where nights had fallen so poor that the only way to keep the status was to rob traders and so on even if it was not their right to do so and eventually the problem became so bad that you had this middle class of nights who had fallen poor and became robust that the big tradings and merchants. The city's gathered union and under the emperor thing was the second thirteenth century or so. They sent this along the rhine to clear out all the rubber nights castles and literally hung them from the trees along the rhine

Okay let's get started. The first word is water wheel. Is it an animal a plant or a geological feature that sounds like a geological feature to me. Maybe some kind of rock that spends a plant. In fact it's a carnivorous plant. A meat eating plant. Yep it grows in freshwater wetlands and feeds on small insects and fish. Wow okay well. Here's another one. The word is slime head. Is it an animal plant or a geological feature well. I've done enough swimming and lake. We wound to know that seaweed can be not slimy. So i'm going to guess that a slime head is a plan actually. It's a fish. They live in tropical parts of the atlantic pacific and indian oceans. They're also called red fish or rough because some people think slime fish is the most appealing name. Okay last one. The word is the seamount. Is it an animal a plant or a geological feature. Oh i know this. One eats a geological feature. It's the name for an underwater mountain or an underwater volcano. That's not active anymore back iras. Well didn't your grandma. G force us to have vacation house on top of an underwater extinct volcano but it turned out that it wasn't extinct. Oh yeah so now.

Juan Sebastián Elcano Was Actually the First Person to Circumnavigate the Earth

"Ferdinand magellan is often credited with being the first person to circumnavigate the earth. However this isn't true. I don't mean this in the same way that columbus wasn't the first european in the americas because the vikings made it to newfoundland. I i mean magellan never circumnavigated the earth at all period. The magellan voyage did not set out travel around the world. The purpose of the mission was to find a western route to the spice islands. Or what we now call indonesia. They set out in fifteen nineteen only twenty seven years after columbus first landed in the bahamas in fourteen. Ninety two the magellan voyage really just set out to achieve with the columbus expedition tried to to reach asia by sailing west. The difference was that this time they knew there was a gigantic landmass in between europe and asia. And this time they were gonna go around it. Magellan was portuguese so many people assume that his expedition was sponsored by portugal. But that wasn't the case. It was actually a spanish expedition sponsored by king charles. The first the spanish wanted the western route because portugal had a monopoly on the eastern route around africa in through the indian ocean. The expedition consisted of five ships with supplies. Last two full years the total crew consisted of two hundred and seventy minute at the start mostly spanish but with crew from many different countries. The expedition took a major toll. The first ship was lost in fifteen twenty in a storm in argentina. The second ship was abandoned in what is now called the straits of magellan. Several months later the third ship was scuttled in the philippines and may fifteen twenty one because of lack of crew and the fourth was lost in indonesia in december on april twenty seven.

Its leader was dead. Over half the crew were dead and they were on the other side of the world. They sailed around without any purpose for about six months. And eventually the crew selected one wants fashion elcano a spaniard to be the captain of the last remaining in smaller ships of the fleet.

"I am 6 40. It is the dark secret place, Brian says here our number two that are cheaper place live if we were on the I heart radio app. And I This is this is sort of. Ah, bit of breaking news from 22. 23 minutes ago, the U. S. Pacific Command by the way. Now Indo Pacific Command. We're now calling the Western Pacific and the Indian Ocean a thing single thing. S 0 23 minutes ago, They tweeted out that the USS Theater Roosevelt Carrier strike group entered the South China Sea to conduct routine operations in support of a free and hashtag free and open in the Pacific. And this confirms something that you the open source intelligence vacuum cleaner that you are probably saw a couple hours ago because there's there's a There's one Aircraft called the C two Greyhound, and it's what's called the carrier onboard delivery or cod aircraft. And this will medevac. Six peep sick people or it'll bring him doctor or a spare part or something like that. Anywhere. That carrier is, um Man in the middle of the Mediterranean. They fly from Sicily out where carriers and you can generally tell where the carrier is because this aircraft the C two Greyhound Generally broadcast its location like a commercial aircraft through the satellite bouncing system, Kel Adsb and for the last couple hours this Aircraft was appearing out of nowhere. No south of Taiwan. And flying patterns. And and all that So s so the U. S. A. U. S. Navy U. S and the Pacific Command confirmed something that we've been watching. For for a while on do you can? You can, too if you go to Um Adsb exchange, but I'm getting I'm getting too deep in the weeds back to the timeline of how we got to January of 2021 s. Oh, this This can't be emphasized enough. That The Chinese government. Their first priority when it was identified that there was a new unknown SARS like virus killing people in Wuhan, the Communist Party officials There didn't want to deliver bad news to the next level up. Do you want No one want to call Beijing and say You know what? We didn't recognize this. This thing was a serious as it is, is really, really serious. So they lied to Beijing. Beijing want to be able to lie to the rest of the world. But you have to know the full truth. If you're gonna effectively lie And so, the in early February, 2020 all the highest Communist Party officials were sacked in Wuhan and who May province then report replaced with hard line President Xi loyalists who were gonna whip everybody into shape and and they did s O. Then our first case is identified in every Washington That person survived. They were younger than 40 on what? What? The timeline can't project and we probably won't know for months or years, but it probably did come to Southern California, and it was called a flu outbreak. Because the people who brought it probably were some of the 80,000 Chinese students who go to school in Southern California most but me most of them don't Go home during their four year unless they're really wealthy. They will usually stay here in Southern California, but several 1000 did fly to China in December. Many of them from Wuhan, and this was before Trump put down the travel ban on China, so they came back to L. A on Influence hospitalizations and the whole thing s O. The trump travel ban from China was in around now. It was the third week of January on Dime. I'm not sure who advised him to do that, but whoever it was, he took it seriously. You was denounced almost immediately by I'm by well all the trump haters. On do this is this is a contemporary report. This is from February of 2020 from business Insider. China's leadership is ousted for senior officials and who Bay Province where the deadly Wuhan Corona virus broke out. This week following reports of discontent in Beijing Thursday at sacked Young Xiaolong, the Chinese Communist Party chief and who Bay province to replace him with the deputy chief of the entire Chinese Communist Party. Young young. He came from Shanghai Young Young, the deputy CCP chief, The CCP chief in the city, Wuhan, Ma, Ga. John was also fired and replaced. By the city of Shandong Chinese Cummings Party chief Wang John Lynn. So there it was. It was Whole cloth and also the Health Commission leader, Jang Jin was removed for dereliction of duty in the fight against the novel Coronavirus Virus epidemic. There was tremendous, just discontent in Beijing amongst civilians. Too. And so this is what the Communist Chinese companies Party leadership did was a isolated Wuhan for 79 days starting in late January. They tried to lock it down. Now this is where you got those scenes on social media last February February of 2020 of Chinese officials literally welding bars onto the door frames of people's apartments. So that the door could only be opened up. You know, eight or 10 inches, but nobody could sneak out, but they could put food in there or whatever, and those were not anomalies. The Chinese and began scrubbing the Internet of social media, especially from doctors when they start to come out because this this was part of the perfect storm was that This is a previously unseen virus, and it happened in a political environment which would be the worst for fighting a pandemic. This is one of complete denial on by lack of transparent information to the rest of the world. On the whole thing. I contrasted it. This time last year with the Yugoslavia 1970 Outbreak of smallpox. Yugoslavia was run from World War two until the early eighties by my Tito, but you also bras called Tito. Which means do this. Do that in Serbia crowd and they had a smallpox outbreak and he was a communist dictator. Now he wasn't a member of the Warsaw Pact. He was not a friend of Moscow, and he was certainly no friend of Washington, D C, but he was a kami dictator with secret police in the whole damn thing, right? What was his approach His approach was to immediately Contact the W. H O and say we have a smallpox outbreak. It kills kids. We are cordoning off the epicenter of the outbreak. Make making a fence around it with police on then the police get inside the fence and the army guards the fence. Can you get here Because we need a crash Vaccination program. Hey, was open and honest about it because because he knew a zoo Most people did, who had lived through prior smallpox outbreaks does its deadly to kids, and you can't lose a generation of kids. On. So he allowed the W. H o in the you invited. He flew them until Yugoslavia and he instructed. This is where a dictatorship is what you want. If it's properly running a pandemic, Tito instructed the entire country unless you can show proof of a smallpox vaccine in the last five years. You're getting in line for a new one for a booster and the entire country, but they didn't need a lot of convincing because most of them had lived through prior smallpox outbreaks. They were vaccinated. The entire thing was contained in about three months. On the W. H O writes it down as probably their crowning achievement in terms of putting a lid on on on a pandemic. But it all started with Tito trusting his top doctors and saying This is serious. Let's bring the world in here, and that's how they beat that The Chinese did the opposite. They said. This is serious. Don't tell anybody. All right? The timeline goes on checking checking what I projected a year ago. Your ago tonight with what did happen over the past year. That and more. It is a dark secret place Brian suits in here. Until 11 Cave. I am 6 40 live everywhere on the radio at Club it's defending with the news.

"Why is that such common question. What is that breakfast question. i would have for breakfast. Had part ahead Sarah millet porridge with spice were Cattleman cinnamon brown sugar and Yeah and but the. The partridge flowers made from millet mood for millet. Which gives it and then they and then they sour it somehow so it's like sour millet porridge and then i like to put coconut milk and spice in that sounds like porridge is usually this just bland. That's what it's supposed to be. Sounds like you're going to opposite direction. Gosh no. I discovered porridge of been discovering parche. All my life. I think it's a process of continual rediscovery honestly like my grandmother's purchase. The best part in the whole world was a best best best best best partridge and then i lived in mombasa for awhile in the night i tasted the part in mombasa and that was the best and i started feeling guilty about liking another party. More than my grandmother's really. Did you have a chance. you're still with us. I'm sorry you can even taste it. You couldn't even get her on board. You can do and also a little bit like mombasa. You're still living out in mombasa or you're you're here full-time based was what was that dalliance with the coast. I've always wanted to live at the coast. Feel like the coast is just a super magical wonderful. Can't i can't even explain mombasa's just it's beautiful. It's one of my. It's like going to the coast dismal. The ken coast is my happy place. All is has been in the indian ocean and the beaches and the coast on on the south coast of the northern. The most beautiful beaches anywhere. I've ever seen Right let's go. Yeah we're gonna so we have mambas where it's at. This deanne is where. It's at. So i just i try and spend as much time as possible so for a while. I thought i could live there. I was just like you know. I can live anywhere. Move bats while you can live anywhere. I mean you can in theory but you but but you can't is super small. It's like It's it was small. It was small for what i needed to do. So i was constantly like jumping on like an extra flight to just to get out of mombassa into opportunity into life and work. Yeah i'm going to pull a thomas friedman on your i i was talking to my cabdriver right from us saying the same thing everybody. He grew up with those living in nairobi. Now it's nice and there's no jobs. But that's i mean. La maybe is an exception. I don't know like a all of the people. There are trying to make it not nice but they. You know beautiful places. Great beach never have good jobs. There's never enough you're to go back to some godforsaken place like new york to get your work done okay. So attlee whenever people say where you from like visiting la and people say where he from. Mo's like the east coast the true your coaster. No because no because yeah kenya's the other east coast and you from the great lakes. That work no i was. I don't know isn't this Right so you're an east coaster kenya being on the east coast in but not like a proper east coast would still be mombassa again. The default how far back to your born raised in nairobi. Yep But then became hopping on a flight to get into life you. You hopped out pretty young young university even before that the last two years of high school i did them in the uk was there. Like that's when. I realized i was black.

Undersea Earthquakes Reveal Sound Warming Info

"Climate change feels like something that's happening to the atmosphere but most of the action is actually at sea about ninety percent of the heat that gets trapped by greenhouse gases is absorbed by the ocean. So it's it's really important to track that energy and time it system and check the warming the ocean. Un kelly's an oceanographer at caltech. Of course the ocean is really big and taking its temperature is hard. Satellites give information about the surface and scientists have launched shifting devices that measure conditions in the upper mile of water but researchers still struggled to collect data from the deep ocean and to detect the long term trends underlying day to day variations in temperature now however scientists have developed a new technique that allows them to measure temperature changes across entire ocean basins. The idea dates back to the nineteen seventies when researchers first proposed using sound waves to study ocean warming because the speed of sound through water depends on the physical properties of that water which are related to temperature and lawfully if we will mobs ocean temperature by one degree this on the speed of change. It's it would be for meters pass. Kent and this is. This is very sensitive. Change when bo wu seismologist also at caltech who led the study that one degree he mentioned is a celsius degree researchers originally proposed using artificial sound sources but that notion got nixed because of concerns about the impacts on marine animals in the new study however woo kelly's and their colleagues show that they can use the sounds produced by earthquakes instead in an earthquake. Some vibrations bounced off the sea floor in. Turn into sound waves. That get picked up by seismometers. Underwater microphones the researchers. Looked the travel times of these sound waves for two thousand pairs of earthquakes. That occurred in the east indian ocean between two thousand and five and twenty sixteen. Each earthquake pair happened in the same place but at different times allowing the researchers to measure how much the sound waves sped up the analysis revealed that the waves traveled a few tenths of a second faster in more recent quakes than older ones a difference that translates to a warming trend zero point zero four degrees celsius per decade four. One hundredths of a degree may not sound like a lot. But it represents a huge amount of heat considering. It's the change in a body of water almost two thousand miles wide and several miles deep. The warming is also substantially higher than the rate reported in previous studies. Although kelly says not to put too much stock in those discrepancies. We don't know whether that is the general finding new curse Here in this in this region at this time or whether that is something we'll find another beach says while we just don't have the date is yet. the study is in the journal.

End of 'Green Sahara' May Have Spurred a Megadrought in Southeast Asia

"Thousand years ago the Sahara had extensive grasslands and was dotted with lakes and trees but some five thousand years ago that Green Sahara dried up to become the enormous desert. We know today and scientists. Now think that this climate shift had effects far away including causing a mega drought in South East, Asia Kathleen are Johnson a Paleo climatologist and geochemists at the University of California Irvine says the key to that discovery were Stalagmites collected in cave in northern Laos. So like my I really amazing archives of past climate variability people are often more familiar with things like tree rings, ice cores, or maybe ocean sediment cores while select nights work in a similar way in that, they are deposited over time Johnson's team analyzed trace elements and carbon and oxygen isotopes in the hardened caved drippings that information enables researchers to determine rainfall patterns over the Millennia and. Johnson and her colleagues discovered signs of a thousand year long drought in Laos which began around the same time. The Sahara dried up about five thousand years ago as for why the two events might be connected the researchers simulated the drying out of the Sahara using climate models and included a couple things we know happened including the subsequent disappearance of vegetation and a connected increase in airborne dust, and they found that those variables. Would have been capable of cooling down the Indian Ocean and so the Cooler Ocean temperatures basically led to less moisture being being brought by monsoon circulation during the summertime when that region gets most of its rainfall, the details are in the journal Nature Communications One of Johnson's co-authors is joyce white a consulting scholar at the Penn Museum. She studies the Human History of Southeast Asia and her reaction when she first heard about the drought. On my God that's the missing millennia the missing millennia because she says, archaeological data are scant in that part. Of Southeast. Asia from four to six thousand years ago white says it's a critical period in which hunter-gatherers gave way to farmers, and there are a lot of debates about how the two periods related to each other. But we lacked the evidence in the area. I'm most interested in which is the maycom valley. White says this study doesn't answer that question directly, but the mega drought is a tantalizing clue for archaeologists has they continue to investigate those missing millennia.

Mr Juggernauts denied that his government had been slow to act. The weather deteriorated so much that one of the tanks was damage and oil started to spill over. Even at that time, we could not start pumping from the tax because the weather conditions were still very back.
