Interview With Wanuri Kahiu
"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.

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. Hard thing to figure out here. I didn't know i didn't know it. I am like now i hadn't heard of it. I wasn't having race conversations with my parents.

That's just because she was different.
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. Science kelly's and wu save this approach may even enable scientists to gauge historical temperature changes by studying data from much older earthquakes. In other words. You could say that the method is sound.

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.
Ship leaking tons of oil off Mauritius has split apart
"Disaster is unfolding, you're protected areas of the Indian Ocean, A grounded ship that's leaked tons of oil near the island nation of Mauritius has now split apart.

The former capital ships in the foes of the tin shine in the southeast is a is a is a really interesting city and I as European city as well so essential Asia. We'll stop. We'll stop to attract more more more tourists. I mean the the other issue there of course is language when I first started going that nobody spoke English.

I said it's hard to believe that they did no mandate fines for offenses like like that in U._S.. Dollars I said so. Please show me please show me in your book where it says a hundred dollar fund so we go to this office with talking and they're shopping around paperless at anyway.

"And so it's an amazing story, and it's right in our own backyard here, but some sometimes the best expeditions on the show are just the ones that that really reveal a story to you that you don't know. Is there a place that you really wanna go something, you really wanna look for the you haven't gotten to yet, so many places, you know, it's a funny thing, I think at the outset of my career, I thought, oh, the more I travel the more, you know, whittled down this this bucket list. But in fact, the more you travel the longer that list gets and I remember the first time I went to China. I thought well, I'm gonna check China off my list, and then you really look at a map of China for the first time as a traveler, and you go, oh, my Lord. This place is huge, you know. And so the more you travel, the more you you learn about I have a real fascination with with islands, and those are sometimes the hardest places to get to always wanted to go to Pitcairn island in the Pacific, which is where the crew the HMS bounty. Escape to after they meet neared, the bounty and the Seychelles and the Maldives in the Indian Ocean, you know, places that are high on my bucket list back to what you're about to do coming up in Egypt. Are you worried at all just about the idea of going into what would be a sacred place and and opening up a sarcophagus? It is a question that I think archaeologists have to think about a lot. You know, there are cultures in the world China to bring it back to China's an interesting example, there are incredible archaeological potentially great archaeological sites there of Chinese emperors that have never been excavated because there is still a real reverence to the preservation of those sites as being sealed in Egypt. There is unfortunately, a variable which is that looting and the black market of antiquities continues to be an enormous issue. Once a site is found in identified there has to be actually guards and protection of that site, unfortunately because there isn't economy for for looting. So I do think that the responsible thing to do in cases like this is to investigate and preserve and conserve the the history of these places. But I do think you have to approach it with with real reverence. You know, I mean, I think we can't forget that AGIP shins did have a strong belief that that their tombs needed to be protected in a sense. And we are. Outsiders to that tomb. So it is a very delicate thing to to think about in a sense finding these tombs and conserving and preserving these mummies does give them anymore Taliban, an afterlife innocence, but at the same time, it is a sacred place. It is a cemetery will, and I can't think of how many horror films have started out with somebody going in and disturbing the dead. Well, that's right.

"The other variable now is to watch out for potential future. Chinese deployments into the Indian Ocean. Which the Indians have been worried about for a for quite some time now, so basically the Indian Ocean is is turning into a pretty big nuclear hot zone to watch. As far as the arms race dynamics. Go. I think what you think that. But I think I see a lot more of those arms race dynamics really playing out on land between the Indians of the park, sunny still. But I think certainly Pakistan's development of the of this sea-launched leg wasn't something that was really taken for granted, maybe in the mid two thousands. But really now seems to be something that they've really started to invest a lot of effort into. Yeah. Grew with that. I think what we're seeing is a match ration- of arms race that has existed in some form another for you know, since the nineteen eighties. And you know, now, we're entering basically the next cycle, which is things are clicking on the land based force for both Augustan, you know, in the early knots fielded the Nassir system which is a tactical nuclear weapon. Capability plus, you know, both are developing their strategic nuclear forces on land. And so moving to see his was kind of the natural culmination. I think from there, you know, again over determined for or organizational bureaucratic procedures Indian case. And I think there's a survivability logic in the Pakistani case. And so, you know, the the the question will be how these dynamics continue, and you know, the the arms race has really been driven. I think largely by my pocket. Stan so far it believed. It needed battlefield nuclear weapons turn Indian conventional attack than it was worried about survivability of strategic choice if India retaliated with nuclear weapons, so that kind of drove Pakistan to build up its forces, drove them to see and the question will be how India decides to respond, and I think a lot of this turns on, you know, whether India is interested in threatening the survivability of Pakistan's. Strategic nuclear forces. Because if they are then I think, you know, we're entering a new phase where India will have to maintain sustain numbers of systems and warheads to maintain somewhat a counterforce advantage and Pakistan will keep building up and moving them around and make targeting much more difficult. And so we could be entering if Pakistan, and it's enough that Pakistan might fear that that's the case. And until there's until unless there's an explicit Indian clarification about. Accepting the deposits secure second strike, Pakistan is always gonna fear Indian threats to the survivability of nuclear force. And so a lot of this on what India's interest is in terms of nuclear strategy, and you know, what kind of targeting of portfolio wants because along as Pakistan believes that India's interested in counterforce when you're going to have vertical arms race until or unless India decides to basically explicitly opt out of it and say, we have no interest in threatening the strategic your strategic nuclear assets. So I think that that's kind of where we are. Now, there are a lot of reasons why do you might be interested in this? But it does create very destabilizing dynamics on the arms race peacetime arms race dynamics. And then obviously anytime there's there are elements of counterforce targeting and any states strategy or believed to be then you start getting I strike instability problems, the need to go preemptively, go I in order devoid, losing and if your nuclear assets, and so, you know, they're both peacetime applications and crises implications. But I mean, I think we're squarely your Pakistan. He's, you know, well before the Indians started even obliquely talking about counterforce being afraid of any kind of hard because all the systems India has been acquiring talking about what you don't talk about. Accuracy so much of your only interested in countervalue retaliation..

The plane went missing in March twenty fourteen on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with two hundred thirty. Nine people on board. An official search ended earlier this year. The official in charge of the investigation is cooked some deal to the significant lack of evidence available to the team. We are unable to determine with any certainty the reasons that the aircraft diverted from his fath- like plan route, the lack of evidence includes the information recorded on the fright data recorder copied wise recorder and other recording devices on the aircraft that could indicate why the aircraft had flown to the southern Indian Ocean. In conclusion, the team is unable to.

I've been some hope that this report might finally offer some sort of closure might explain why it is that a major commercial airline would do a one hundred ninety degree turn go off the radar and disappeared off into the Indian Ocean. As far as we can see what the report has found though, is that it was manually diverted, they'd been some sort of, I guess, conspiracies that it could have remotely somehow been diverted from its from its course. But the investigators say, no, somebody was at the controls. Now they're not ruling out food parties being involved in some sort of unlawful interference from on board the plane. But they also can't determine whether or not the pilot was at all times in front of the controls though in terms of the pilot and the co-pilot they could find nothing in their background, nothing in their private lives, which might just something unusual. The main pilot had apparently I almost. I perfect safety record. The plane itself had nothing wrong with it as far as they could determine.
